Soul Consciousness for the Global Age
“Mindfulness and yoga are very helpful for spiritual progress. But because our world is in such a deep crisis, our survival now requires that we go even deeper within to access ever-higher sources of wisdom and guidance,” says author Colleen Mauro. Mauro is the founder and former editor-in-chief of Intuition: A Magazine for the Higher Potential of the Mind, which for over a decade informed a national audience about the emerging field of intuition development. In her new book, Spiritual Telepathy: Ancient Techniques to Access the Wisdom of Your Soul, she builds upon this legacy by introducing a more advanced form of intuitive perception that she calls spiritual telepathy. Acclaimed by Barbara Marx Hubbard as “a wonderful and important book,” Spiritual Telepathy provides mind-training practices that allow readers to access the wisdom of their own souls—and through the soul, make contact with the divine or universal mind.
Mauro points out that many of our most celebrated creative thinkers—those people we call geniuses or visionaries—have had the ability to access the subtle realms. In their writings, they speak of the soul as the portal to a universal source of inspiration. Spiritual Telepathy is dedicated to the proposition that we can all access this portal. “It is possible for each of us to build our bridge to the soul and tap that universal flow of wisdom and knowledge,” she writes. “Genius should no longer be a rare and random event, but an experience that each of us can cultivate.”
With the intention of providing “a guidebook for the rest of us,” Spiritual Telepathy is written in a personal, practical, succinct, and easy-to-read style. The book provides a special focus on techniques derived from Ageless Wisdom tradition. Mauro illustrates the universal nature of these teachings by drawing on a wide range of cultures and spiritual traditions, both ancient and modern; she also shows us how recent science is validating this perennial wisdom. The book includes meditations on lovingkindness, forgiveness and compassion, the practices of harmlessness and the nightly review, and three progressive meditations designed to link the mind and soul.
According to Corinne McLaughlin, a leading author on Ageless Wisdom teachings, “Spiritual Telepathy is a well-researched, very comprehensive summary of the Ageless Wisdom teachings on the mind and meditation, citing fascinating historical and modern examples in all religions. Included are inspiring personal stories of meditators today, scientific research on the mind and telepathy, and helpful meditation instructions.”
Becoming Soul-Aligned and “Seeing in Two Directions”
In this book Mauro offers us a roadmap to the riches of the soul. She also inspires readers to contact the soul to discover their higher purpose. She proclaims that the wisdom and guidance of the soul will allow us to become the pioneers of a new world:
“When we build our bridge between the mind and the soul, we become pioneers in the next stage of human development—the soul-aligned human being. The soul-aligned human has a mind trained to ‘see’ in two directions: outward into the physical world or upward into the subtle worlds of spirit . . . Those of us who build this bridge are the pioneers who will lead the way to a new civilization. When we build our bridge between the physical and spiritual worlds, we are, literally, bringing heaven down to earth. As more and more of us open to the subtle worlds, we will bring an ever-increasing flow of divine ideas and inspiration to the world. Together, we can usher in a new era of unity, cooperation, and peace.”

A lifelong interest in the untapped powers of the mind led to Colleen Mauro to launch Intuition: A Magazine for the Higher Potential of the Mind in 1988. Her thirty years of experience in magazine publishing includes work as a publisher, editor, advertising director, and circulation and marketing consultant. Intuition explored the higher potential of the mind and the many and varied ways of knowing—intuition, inspiration and telepathy—providing both research and how- to information in easy-to-read form for the general reader. .
“Colleen Mauro is an archeologist of the spirit. In this delightfully original guidebook she
unearths what varying traditions have taught about the nature of telepathy, and provides modern readers with a handbook for self-experiment.”
