Interested in letting go of what’s holding you back in your life?
SingingHU on a regular basis increases your ability for meeting the waves of life. Members of Eckankar often sing a personal secret word (given during a spiritual initiation). Both attune Soul, the eternal spiritual being that we are, to a new level of consciousness.
The Mahanta is a spiritual guide who teaches Soul Travel, a natural ability which allows travel inwardly, often to Temples of Golden Wisdom in other realms of existence. Read More
This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s talk “The Wonderful Ways of ECK” in 2005.
I’d like to mention here a few thoughts I’ve written about. One of the thoughts is: Every thought, word, or deed either purifies or pollutes the body. Now, this is very important, very powerful, because you’re dealing with states of consciousness.
At some point I got rid of all the negative songs I had in my collection. Even if there was only one negative song on a CD, I got rid of it. You have to understand, I listen to country music. And you know how country music is—they always throw in at least one tearjerker on a CD. So I cleared them all out; I gave them away. I figured they would be good for someone, because states of consciousness are different. And then I found myself listening more and more to classical music. But it doesn’t have to be classical music for you. Read More
As a columnist for Eckankar’s Animals Are Soul blog, I had the opportunity to be interviewed on an “Animal Writes” podcast from the Pet Life Radio network. It was delightful to talk with the podcast’s host, Tim Link, and his animal-loving audience. To listen to the podcast, click on any of the links at the end of this article.
Tim is an author who has been interviewed for national and local television and radio shows as well as newspaper and magazine articles. He closed our interview by saying, “I encourage everyone to go to the Animals Are Soul blog. Take a look at it. Learn a lot. Share your stories. Find other stories that relate to you and your spiritual path. It’s a wonderful, wonderful blog.” Read More
This story is about “Matthew” from Ghana, and how he learned the secrets of health and harmony.
For two days, Matthew had been bedridden with malaria, and he took medications to help him get through this. Then he tried a healing technique. He thought, Being an ECKist, I’m going to try something. So he envisioned, or imagined, some of the ECK Masters helping him heal the rest of the way.
This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp‘s 2007 talk “Change Is Change.”
This is the story of “Alita.” She’s the mom of Minnou, a cat she’s owned for ten years. I have to say, the only name that I haven’t changed in these stories is Minnou’s. I don’t think she’ll mind.
During the ten years that Minnou has lived in Alita’s home, the Spiritual Exercises of ECK have become very important for Minnou. This is the HU session with the Mahanta, the Inner Master.
Well, Alita had just taken up knitting. She became so engrossed in knitting one day, she knitted clean through the time set aside for the HU session. OK, Minnou forgave her that day, but this HU session is for Minnou too. Read More
“There is an even greater law, and this is the Law of Love. This is the Law of Spirit, the Light and Sound of God. You can bring It into your own life, and when you do, there will be no one who can take It from you or tell you this or that way is right for you. You are going to know for yourself from direct experience with the Light and Sound of God.”

Karma describes our actions and reactions in life. It is one way God teaches us grace and respect for ourselves and others.
Spiritual students of Eckankar, also known as chelas, work with the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master to resolve karma from past actions and learn techniques for making wiser choices.
It benefits all when we harmonize our actions and reactions with the ECK (also known as the Life Force or the Holy Spirit) which sustains the universes. This puts us in alignment with Sugmad, Eckankar’s name for God, which is the source of all life.
The exercise below offers practical tips for dealing with karma and living in greater harmony with life. Read More
This clip—and the transcript below—is from Harold Klemp’s talk “The Breath of God” in 2006.
“Lisa” is an Australian, and some time ago she lost her first daughter. The girl was only three months old when she passed away. Lisa was heartbroken. But later she realized that she had repaid karma of a certain kind, both with that Soul and of her own.
Through this, she learned to value life more than she did before. Then, seven years later, she had a second daughter. Read More
Some people never recognize the blessings they receive. Others may look back and realize they’ve had a gift of healing of some sort. Maybe something has changed at work to make their life better. But it depends upon the individual—how conscious you are.
A spiritual exercise to begin recognizing your gifts is this: Sing HU quietly to yourself or out loud. Look at the obstacles in your life that you think are stumbling blocks. Imagine them becoming stepping-stones. How are they teaching you about yourself? Open yourself and gain greater awareness of this as you sing HU. Read More
