As humanity is awakening to the reality of our interconnectedness, spiritual practices and the industries that support spiritual growth have also been growing. Today, spiritual practices that were once only practiced by tiny percentage of the population like monks and priests are now widely adopted by the greater whole.
One place where we see clear evidence of consciousness rising is the widespread adoption of yoga. Across America, students, stressed-out young professionals, CEOs and retirees are among those who have embraced yoga, fueling a $27 billion industry with more than 20 million practitioners.1 Yoga has been shown to have tremendous health and emotional benefits, and this trend is very exciting as it will give rise to more and more people who have a positive outlook towards life and themselves.
Like yoga, meditation is another esoteric practice that has now gained widespread adoption. Today a vast number of business executives have even realized how meditation can help them be more effective and compassionate during their work.2 This is very encouraging; if business and political leaders begin to realize the power of meditation, it is likely to have a ripple effect throughout society.
Other common areas where inner spiritual practices are being developed in mainstream society include:
- Tai Chi
- Holistic Healing
- Essential Oil & Flower Essence Use

The return of the Aether and the study of the quantum vacuum will bring Science closer to understanding Spirituality at its heart: what connects us all with each other. This connection is expressed in the major religions through Divine Love (Christianity), our sense of being Chosen for a Purpose (Judaism), Inner Enlightenment (Sufi), Faith (Islam), Acceptance (Buddhism), and that we are All One (Hinduism). It is also expressed in other spiritual practices like Wicca, Druidry, Kaballah, Native American Traditions, and many other Indigenous Traditions around the world through systems of understanding our deepest level of relationship with all things, and our inherent connection with All that Is.
The foundations for Peace on this planet lie underneath our beliefs about each other, and our acceptance of each other’s perspectives and paths. If we want to create a world culture of Peace, we must constantly remember that each person is coming from a different perspective, though our experiences are often very similar. This is part of the Guardian’s journey, to see all Paths as part of a single one: Self Mastery.
