"The purpose of the 9 Life Altering Lessons book and the Guided Meditation CD's is to invite you to pull up a chair and join us here for a thought-provoking conversation, like philosophers have done throughout the ages. I’ve spent this lifetime and others engaged in conversations such as these. Some call me a teacher. I like to say I do not teach, rather I help souls remember who they are. This knowledge is timeless and universal and belongs to no one and everyone all at the same time. Each person retains this information deep within their soul where they hold the key. When they are ready to release this wisdom and remember who they are and why they are here, they do so. For some people, the way to take this journey is through the mystery schools with a teacher and a guide. If I may be of some service in this capacity, along this journey for them, I am pleased to do so. It is my philosophy that Spirit does not exist in just one location; rather it is all encompassing, living within and amongst us in each moment, thought and action. I believe that Spirit is raised to it's highest level, when individuals gather with wisdom, compassion and a discerning desire to provide service to humanity and so the journey begins..."

You have an exquisitely beautiful voice and you are by far my favorite guide ~ I love that you create such positive images, your language catches my heart and spirit and resonates so strongly that I feel physically drawn into growth. In general, you are an exquisite gift. Thank you".
-- Deb, Colorado
"Hi Kala, I’d like to share with you – since the first evening after I began reading your book, I have enjoyed the most incredibly, vivid dreams of my entire life! It’s obvious to me that there is a correlation. They are sometimes very pleasant and uplifting, and a few have been “not so pleasant” in their content, but I have not felt any emotional disturbance about them. They have clear meaning and important messages for me. In fact, it feels to me they are clarifying and providing a beautiful cleansing for unresolved emotional issues from years back. I have always been someone who received Guidance during my dream state, but this has taken it to another level. It’s as if a “life review” is occurring with the most amazing feeling of love and understanding, so that I can be free of any burdens from mistakes in my past. It’s so cool!! Thought you might enjoy knowing that. I sincerely believe the loving Energy of your beautiful spirit comes through powerfully in your book."
-- R.B. Maryland
"Where do I start? How about, from the bottom of my heart thank you Kala! I finished your book a while ago now and it has had, and continues to have, deep and profound implications for me. I was going to write this email when the positive changes started to peter out or stop but they just keep on coming. What did I learn? In short, I discovered self-love. And it is truly transformational. Without self love you feel like a hungry ghost, I've been searching (and discovering) for such a long time without any, or very little, permanent change. I would discover something, that good feeling would be fleeting, or I would know the information I'm learning is truly wise, however, like a ghost it would just pass through me. Love has the most potent seed of, dare I say it, life-altering power imaginable, and it is this book that gave me the breakthrough I really needed."

“I can not teach anybody anything, I can only make them think”, was the philosophical statement of Socrates, as he worked to inspire others in Athens, including his most famous student, Plato. In many ways, the thoughts of Socrates parallel mystery school teachings including his most well known quote, “The unexamined life is not worth living”. There is no clear record that Socrates was part of a mystery school, but the mystery temples were a strong presence in Greece. Their philosophies inspired the rise of thought in the Greek empire, as temple life was something every Greek participated in on some level, including rituals on holidays, sacred ceremonies and even the occasional trek to see an Oracle for guidance.
Where did mystery school teachings come from?
In ancient times, mystery schools were well attended in Greece. One of the most famous was the temple at Delphi, with the esoteric axiom inscribed above the temple door – Man Know Thyself. This was a mental reminder to those who entered the temple, of the first lessons each student endeavored to answer – Who Am I and Why Am I Here?
Sacred symbols of the teachings such as seen at the temple of Delphi, are found around the world. The most famous would be the temples of ancient Egypt including the temple of Karnak, which is referred to as Ipet-isut “the most sacred of places”. The divine energy of the goddess Sekhmet is still felt today by those who visit here and many come away with stories of profound experiences while entering her temple.
9 Life Altering
Kala's book, 9 Life Altering Lessons: Secrets of the Mystery Schools Unveiled, delves into the teachings of ancient Egypt and Greece and explains the Mystery Schools and their ventures into the other realms. The nine lessons are designed to stir the soul, awaken the mind and reveal long forgotten memories of past lives in these schools, as well as inspire you to explore the magnificence of who you really are.

How were the esoteric wisdom teachings shared?
The teachings, referred to as wisdom, enlightenment, and esoteric teachings have been shared through many ages of humanity. Some of the most recognized are from ancient Egypt, Greece and Celtic Europe, however their history goes back much further to India, Sumeria, and Babylon and to what is referred to as Atlantis and Lemuria. The origin of the teachings were brought to earth by teachers of light, in service to humanity. Carefully crafted, the teachings were taught exoterically to the masses in parables and esoterically to those who were ready to look deeper within their soul.
Each lesson was introduced to the mind, then experienced through the heart and eventually became a permanent part of the soul, carried forth from one lifetime to the next. It could be more accurately described to say that they are absorbed within to gain new life, rather than committed to rote memory.
What is the purpose of a mystery school?
The goal of a mystery school is
to present the core concepts of universal
wisdom. The teacher can be viewed
as a gardener, planting seeds of
knowledge in the mind of the burgeoning
student. The student then contemplates
and cultivates these thoughts so
that the seeds grow and yield fruit.
This is referred to as turningknowledge
into wisdom, moving from information
gathering into action by applying
what has been learned into daily
life. As the student begins the process
of knowing, (gnosis), and awakening,
each step leads further inward, gaining
momentum along the way leading into
a rebirth of the soul, which alters
the person on all levels.
This experience is symbolized by the butterfly, it begins life in one form as a caterpillar and then engages in a transformative process - going within a cocoon and emerging as a beautiful butterfly.
This is how the teachings grow, rather than you absorbing them, they take root and absorb into you, forever changing who you are and how you view the world. Rather than you controlling the garden, you become the garden.
Why study in a mystery school today?
Some mystery schools provide physical temples for study, while others connect with the natural forces of the ocean, forests and mountains for certain rituals and powerful introspective experiences. Kala shares the esoteric teachings and ancient mysteries at the mystery school, the Temple of Stella Maris. Students who wish to explore their inner selves enter the temple and begin the journey to discover who they are. Each person retains this information deep within their soul where they hold the key.
Regardless of the outward presence of the mystery school, the essence of the school is the inner temple created within the heart, mind and soul on the spiritual planes.
As each student endeavors to answer, Who Am I and Why Am I Here, the esoteric teaching referred to as “As Above, So Below” is understood. This teaching explains that…
When We Activate Our Consciousness,
We Become Magical Beings
and Can Harness This Energy
Life Altering Lessons
Kala's book: 9
Life Altering Lessons is
now available on Amazon's Kindle e-reader.
When the higher consciousness is activated, the all seeing eye of the universe becomes aware of our awakened presence and engages with us. During this awakening, a series of alchemical changes occur opening the physical and auric body to receive an energetic transformation and informational download. An overflowing ocean of energy is now directed around the person enhancing the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Prior to this exchange, the heart, body and mind was only able to perceive, receive and hold with their energy body, tiny droplets of this magnetic energy from the universe.
This leads to a profound awakening for the student, that is timeless and as relevant and life-altering today as it was in the sacred temples of Egypt and Greece for…
In that Moment of Awareness and Enlightenment,
Everything Changes on Every Level.
To explain further, universal energy flows continuously like a waterfall from the higher planes onto the earth plane. Each day, as our thoughts, words, actions and deeds pour forth from each of us; they interact with this energy waterfall, which creates the complex system of what occurs in our daily lives.
In its most basic level, this teaching is taught as a parable as a law of attraction to the masses. The reason why the teaching of this law at the rudimentary level has not worked for many people is that it does not delve further into the core level teachings. The law of attraction (energy follows thought) is like flowing water, it follows the easiest path. For many people, their thoughts and emotions generate from the first three chakras; the seat of will in the solar plexus, the sexual desire of the sacral chakra and the survival center of the root chakra. From this connection, through the emotional and mental bodies, most thoughts, words, actions and deeds are short lived due to the dense matter of this energy which can only be sustained in short bursts.
In this state, it interacts for a few brief moments with the universal energy waterfall, causing an action and reaction (cause and effect) within the person and outwardly on the earth plane and then it is gone. Unless the emotion or thought is repeated often, continuing to send it back to this waterfall, (which causes greater action and reaction to occur regarding this particular thought), it will dissipate quickly. This is due to the amount of energy required from the lower self, which is exhaustive. The result is reactive only. Basically we send out a lower level desire or impulse and it is reflected back to us.
When the soul awakens and becomes aware of universal energy, the person operates from the higher consciousness. The person is now able to communicate with deliberate and focused energy to this universal waterfall. They will participate in a powerful ritual, which begins with…. “Now, I See You and You See Me”. “I AM interacting with you and wish to magnify this energy with you to create an outcome”.
As the All Seeing Eye/Universal Energy becomes aware that you are “aware”, its energy quickens and vibrates with yours and things begin to happen at a faster pace. It has no problem keeping up with you, as quickly as you are willing to progress. At this point, you will begin to see what truly is possible in such a magical universe. Indeed, the possibilities are endless.
Mystery schools teach this ritual only after the student has dedicated the time to purify the body, mind and soul as connecting with energy, like electricity, can be used for positive or negative results. Some choose not to work on the side of light and rather than operate from the loving connection through the heart chakra, they conduct energy from the lower bodies to achieve their desires. Accessing energy at this level can be achieved, however, it has the detrimental effect of taking a harsh toll on the body and mind. This is one of the reasons that mystery schools engage in working with the student on themselves before teaching these ancient secrets. Otherwise consequences can result which are unwanted and the student may not be prepared to handle the resulting outcome.
Esoteric teachers and mystery schools exist to guide the student through this process of reconnecting with the Divine Mysteries. Each lesson is referred to as peeling back the onion. As we peeled back a layer here on just one lesson, I leave you with this question…
Are you the person you thought you were, or
Are you someone greater than you ever imagined?
Perhaps you are the sum of all of these things and even more than revealed thus far. Now that you are aware of these possibilities, what will you do with them?
