Within New Age beliefs and practices, a profoundly intense mystical experience will be the catalyst to achieve a Personal Transformation. Guided imagery, hypnosis, meditation and in extreme cases, the use of drugs, are useful to bring about and enhance this transformation. Some mystical experiences occur spontaneously. They usually occur when the person is alone and in a relaxed mental state. Many things can produce mystical experiences such as dreams, words, phrases, music, art, sounds, smells, daydreaming, the play of light upon land and sea, nature, or a near-death experience.
Believers hope to develop new potentials within themselves: the ability to heal oneself and others, psychic powers, a new understanding of the workings of the universe, and many other New Age discoveries. When sufficient numbers of people have achieved these powers, a major spiritual, physical, psychological and cultural planet-wide transformation is expected.
“Any person or thing of significance to you unconsciously plays a role in mirroring your own internal universe, just as you do theirs.”
“Many people achieved important goals in their lives, but hardly any of them seemed any happier for it. Even worse, some complained that other areas of their lives had suffered along the way. The reason is simple: they didn’t change the framework components of their personality—beliefs, decisions, and other subconscious structures that are typically negatively-oriented. Those basic structures had been triggered by the fulfillment of the goal and were subsequently creating a mess in people’s lives.”
