The ECK or the Holy Spirit speaks to us all the time, providing guidance, protection and even answers to problems we face in life. All one has to do is be humble enough to listen to the silent voice of the ECK and follow its guidance. Sometimes this spiritual guidance comes by way of ‘waking dream’ experiences that help us sidestep spiritual harm.
I was driving along the highway, feeling frustrated and agitated about an issue that had come up between me and a colleague. Before I knew it, I was having angry thoughts and negative energy was slowly building up within. Just as this was happening, my thoughts were disrupted by a sharp sound of a very tiny object that flew out of nowhere and hit the front windscreen. It was as if I received a small jolt from the sound energy. I knew right away that it was a quick reminder from the Inner Master to watch my negative train of thoughts before they caused me spiritual harm. So I let the angry thoughts go. Read More

Many animals have an uncanny way of knowing where they should go to get the help they need. Those with a higher consciousness even know where to go to give to those who need it.

A while back, I scheduled an elective medical procedure with a registered nurse (RN). As her medical office was being remodeled, she asked if I’d be willing to have the procedure done at her home office. When I arrived, she was outside, talking on her cellular phone. She gestured to me to follow her inside her home.
Once inside, I met her small, fluffy white ball of fur that seemed to think he was a huge guard dog! As I stood in her foyer waiting for her to finish her conversation, I noticed the dog skulking around her and growling at me. Read More

I would like to share with you this story of when I was in a car accident almost two years ago.
I was taken to the hospital after being hit by a car that came out of an intersection and did not stop. It spun my car around several times and totaled my car. Read More

My younger sister was ill. She kept fainting, and no one knew how to help her. Eventually, she went to her doctor and received a devastating diagnosis: She had an inoperable brain tumor and had only a few months to live. She was only thirty-six years old.
When I heard the news, I wanted to see her. Although she was of another faith, I thought it might help her to have some material on the ECK teachings, so I packed some books and tapes on Eckankar.
When I arrived, I gave her what I’d brought and also gave her a picture of the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master. I let her know the Mahanta was the Inner Master and could help her during this difficult time. Then I shared the HU with her. Read More

I worked as an officer in a private bank in India. One day, my manager told me another branch of the bank had a work overload and the head office wondered if I’d be willing to help out. It meant transferring to the other branch for a few months.
I accepted, and one week later I was working in the other branch. My tasks went smoothly. In three months I had completed them all and began to assist as a cash officer.
One morning, my new manager told me it was time to return to my original bank branch. I offered to stay until the end of the day, but the manager refused.
“My instructions are for you to leave immediately!” he snapped. Then he walked away. Read More

My father had been brought up as an orthodox Jew, and although he was a very spiritual man, he was wary of the spiritual path I’d chosen for myself. Eckankar seemed foreign and unfamiliar to him.
But as I began to practice the Spiritual Exercises of ECK, my father immediately realized something was different about me. He also noticed that when I returned from an Eckankar seminar I was filled with more light and love.
“Whatever you’re doing,” he said, “it must be good.” Read More

My wife and I decided to go on a vacation to Portugal with my eldest daughter and her husband. As we reviewed the details of our trip, my wife realized our return flight to Munich was scheduled to land in the middle of the night. We lived two and a half hours from the airport, and my wife was concerned about the long drive home.
Instead of traveling such a long way in the dark, she suggested we stay in a hotel that night.
I thought her concerns were unfounded. I like to drive and didn’t mind traveling another few hours home. So we decided not to take the hotel room.
Several days later, I had a terrible dream.
I am standing near metal bars or railings. Next to me are the damaged remains of a car. Its left door hangs open. Nearby, a human body is lying on the road, cut in two. Read More

One rainy afternoon I drove along an expressway listening to the beautiful song of HU playing on my car stereo. An ancient and sacred name of God, the sound of HU can open the heart to the Holy Spirit’s love and protection.
Soon I noticed the driving conditions had become increasingly dangerous. I had already passed one car accident, and now rainwater was pooling on the road.
I hit my brakes to slow down.
Suddenly, the car skidded out of control and went into a spin. Swinging around and around, I careened into traffic, heading toward a railed embankment. All I could do was hold the steering wheel tightly as I prepared myself for the coming collision. Read More

A farmer in Scotland had a large herd of cows. He and his wife treated these cows like their children. Every morning they’d come out to feed and milk them. They would call each cow by name and give them little treats. They’d pet them. The cows loved the farmer and his wife, and the couple loved the cows.
One day the farmer got on his tractor and drove out into the field to check on a newborn calf. This was risky because a neighbor’s bull had been brought over for breeding purposes and was loose in the field.
When the bull saw the farmer, he charged the tractor and knocked the farmer off and began to gore him. The farmer went unconscious. Read More

Although a student of Eckankar, I occasionally doubted the constant presence of the Mahanta in my life. I wondered if the Inner Master’s promise, I am always with you, was really true.
One evening, I was lying in bed, trying to decide whether I should do a spiritual exercise, have dinner, or just go to sleep. All of a sudden, I heard the very clear voice of the Inner Master within me.
“Get up and sing HU!” he said.
The voice was so strong and urgent, it sounded like a command. I promptly got out of bed and began singing HU, Soul’s love song to God. About five minutes into the spiritual exercise, I heard another clear, inner instruction. Read More
