Building a new world - Secret of Shambhala
Updated: Aug 26
The series of books; The Celestial Prophecy, written by James Redfield; are a good guidebook and an eye opener to how we are evolving into greater spiritual individuals. Diving deep into the complex realm of our nature and simplifying it in words. Somehow I had never come across this author. However upon the introduction to this series of books the title of the third book; the "Secret of Shambhala" intrigued me. The vibrations of the Tibetan ways have always been so mysterious, so why not give it a go and see what this author had discovered along his journey.
It must be said, that this book was written in 1999, and to start off; it is impressive how the author was already visualising how the technological world and governments where taking over the world, monitoring our phones and internet usage, selling us fake medications, following our moves to entrap us and manipulate us, etc...etc... I read a comment online that this was something that distracted some readers.... In this day and age, after 24 years from it being written, these ideologies have been materialised with sufficient evidence that only those who don't want to see are sadly left in their own dark bubbles.
The Celestine Prophecy describes 12 insights that mankind should be aware of to reach a better understanding of life without the mental noise that we are always being promoted to uptake a complicated comfortably numb life. The secret of Shambhala describes the 11th insight, which is that of the "Prayer Fields". A similarity to the power of intent that Castaneda speaks about in his writings.
From the book it was revealed, that we have been programmed to criticise what is around us, not to allow silence to enter our beings. Take for example a newspaper, 95% of its content are matters that are saddening, this is put out there as a sad entertainment so that we are left hyped to criticise on these topics between each other. And believe you me; it sells. This unfortunately puts us at a downfall in humanity and our spiritual evolution. Creating a loop of darkness and fear all around us. However it is through these downfalls we learn how to stand back up better than before.
When we consider and understand the powers we are given to make life sweet, we can start by putting a halt to this and commence building a new world. However this will come at a price, since we first have to see and take apart the world that has hijacked and manipulated us into this state. Individual by individual this is a possibility.
Life, is most of the time, just great, it's our complications of life that make it difficult and sometimes unbearable. Doing our best to take in less from the outside world, we can manage to make way to the inner life and silence within our beings.
We must remember not to take for-granted this very moment, the air we breathe, the body we inhabit, the amazing planet that bears us. Once we open up to this world and start entering into the simplistic lifestyle, we can start manifesting the real magic life offers us.
The book describes a journey of coincidences that are observed as synchronicities, which bring about full action from the person being described. The 12th insight in this book helps us understand the field of expectations that we send out into the world. The author claims that our expectations can actually make things happen. Here's an example of how he explained it worked:
"A teacher who expects the best of a student seems to get it, and a teacher who expects the student to fail seems to get that too."
Words of Meister Eckhart that explain this field of expectation in another way:
"When I want something, even if it is a thousand miles away, then it is more truly mine than something in my lap which I do not want to have."
In other words, we should start seeing the beauties of life, rather than submerging in the crisis's we are being sold. By doing so we start seeing that the world around us responds to this energy. We are of course energetic beings who live in an energetic world. Like attracts like, so let us open up to this frequency and bring about the greatness of ourselves. Building these individual values we build the new world together, human being by human being.
The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.
It's up to us to reach out and connect to the infinite world of beauty.
It is always there for us, waiting for us to see it and embrace it.

1- Noticing Synchronicity
We are discovering again that we live in a deeply mysterious world, full of sudden coincidences and synchronistic encounters that seem destined.
2- The World has a “Spiritual Design”
As more of us awaken to this mystery, we will create a completely new worldview redefining the universe as energetic and sacred.
3- “Giving” The Karmic Design
We will discover that everything around us, all matter, consists of and stems from a divine energy that we are beginning to see and understand.
4- Human Control Dramas
From this perspective, we can see that humans have always felt insecure and disconnected from this sacred source, and have tried to take energy by dominating each other. This struggle is responsible from all human conflict.
5- The Spiritual Connection
The only solution is to cultivate a personal reconnection with the divine, a mystical transformation that fills us with unlimited energy and love, extends our perception of beauty, and lifts us into a Higher-Self Awareness.
6- Sensing A Life Mission
In this awareness we can release our own pattern of controlling, and discover a specific truth, a mission, we are here to share that help humanity toward this new level of reality.
7- Following Intuition
In pursuit of this mission, we can discover an inner intuition that shows us where to go and what to do, and if we make only positive interpretations, brings a flow of coincidences that opens the doors for our mission to unfold.
8- Giving Energy Increases Synchronistic Experiences
When enough of us enter this evolutionary flow, always giving energy to the higher-self of everyone we meet, we will build a new culture where our bodies evolve to ever higher levels of energy and perception.
9- Fulfilling Human Destiny
In this way, we participate in the long journey of evolution from the Big Bang to life's ultimate goal: to energize our bodies, generation by generation, until we walk into a heaven we can finally see.
10- Life in Heaven- Guiding Us On Earth
The possibility of a state where “Heaven is on Earth.” We realize that we all need to work together to achieve this spiritual state. Even the veil between “Heaven” and “Earth” will start to fade and we become aware of other realities and dimensions.
We need to hold the vision of harmony and spirituality to realize that vision.
11- The Power of Prayer
These are ways and methods we use to realize the vision of a Heaven on Earth. We realize the power of intention to make this vision a reality. This power greatly intensifies when we use it together in groups, for the common good of all.
12- The Sensation of God’s Presence Inside Us
The last insight of the Celestine Prophecy, is where we begin to feel the presence of the Divine within us. We will become more aware of the unfolding of our destiny. We will begin to realize the Divine presence in every human being we come in contact with.
