Have close to 90 videos on a various subjects from a spiritually innovative perspective that need to get more public exposure.

I have had an extreme spiritual focus most of my life, since I am not very capable in any other area.  My survival on this planet has demanded that I focus with everything I got at continuously improving spiritually!  Necessity if often the mother of invention!  Living life on the edge can sharpen ones spiritual senses and motivate one to do what it takes to improve ones spiritual theories and meditative exercise techniques as well as nutrition so that one will develop the fined tuned  intuition required to keep one progressing and avoiding serious trouble and resultant setbacks.  I was born differently able with visual memory and finer nerve limitations that made me able to be really capable in a very unique way that enabled me to not only develop new spiritual theories and training techniques, but a new astrology system.  My spiritual approach is all about improving how we are able to perform spiritual as front line spirits in a physical world that badly needs us to better contribute to improving on the conditions that exist there.  I strongly feel we live in a world that is quite backward spiritually considering the serious challenges that exist in our modern highly technological age.  I understand that most people are pretty well set in their ways spiritually and uncomfortable venturing into anything that will challenge what they were taught to believe and often had programmed into them early in life.  But, I can only reach those that are really searching for better, more reasonable spiritual answers and willing to experiment with and evaluate that which is different from anything they are familiar with.  I have many spiritually focus blog posts here on wordpress that you can explore and here is the link to the YouTube videos My very spiritual  business partner Michelle Ronquillo and I have created:

Why I am able to do things spiritually others are not able to!

1.  I was born with limited visual memory(good at core structural visuals only) . Also had related limited finer motor skills(one can not do what one can not visualize doing).

2.  Compensated for limitations with creativity and intuition to help me handle all the many situations in life I faced with a lack of visual familiarity. This helped me to become really aware spiritually, an area I was born with a lot of natural ability in.

3.  Did play creatively in the spiritual starting at an early age, but not in a way very different from other people. Did play around creatively with trying to develop a new astrology system, but not much differently than a lot of other astrologers  did. Also did push my limits with aerobic exercise as well as experimented with meditative techniques, but not in a way that really made me stand out that much from others. BUT, This all changed in March, 1992 at the age of 40. Then when trying to reach the public with my ideas I felt the extreme pressure that come with presenting anything really different to the media and public and after 2 resulting near death experiences, that I know only someone as determined as me could have survived, I was willing to really focus on moving in a direction no one else would be able to or see a reason to! Link to near death experiences:

4. After 1992 I worked at developing new really advanced meditative(breathing) techniques and exercises that were designed increased my spiritual connection with reality by strengthening my physical-spiritual connection. The physical is resistant in nature so is able to give one the spiritual strength to cross barriers others can not. It also can challenge one in a way that can bring out the most in you spiritually. Today, we have so many problems in this world related to our inability to adequately handle the problems this physical world we exist in presents us with! Here are links to my meditative exercises and really intense dumbbell swing exercise:

5.  I have a diet without anything in it that act as a drug with means no herbs or condiments! My vegan diet(which evolved over a lifetime of experimentation) of mostly Oatmeal, canned greens, some tomatoes and vitamin/mineral supplements was designed for me individually to help me handle an extremely intense physical-spiritual training program! I do also do an intense frantic 3/4 of a mile run pretty much every day! I do not use coffee(caffeine)like most other runners, since I do not want anything interfering with my natural spiritual attunement to my body and how I am able to read it and figure out exactly how hard I can safely push it and in what way. When one pushes the body in a way that no one else is able you must be extremely sharp spiritually with no drugs/chemicals interfering with how you are tuned in spiritually to your body. One needs to rely on the drugs/chemicals the body itself produces and utilizes based on its perceived need.

6.  After 1992, I did develop a very unique astrology system that evolved as the intensity and effectiveness of my meditative/spiritual training/exercise techniques evolved. This astrology system is not some variation of a traditional astrology system(does not have signs or houses)and is not mythology based. It was developed with an emphasis on applying as much logic to it as possible along with utilizing my intuition/understanding of how the spiritual actually works. It was my spiritual tuning device that had to work well for to enable me to do incredibly intense spiritual training safely. So when ever I was not happy with my spiritual progress, I would have to figure out ways of improving my astrology system and the spiritual theories that where utilized in designing its structure. Spiritual training I find may bring one some inspiration, but intense thinking is required to further refine any raw inspiration into something very functional in this challenging reality we exist in. My mind has pushed the limits very often in my life especially after 1992 with a trial and error process applied over and over. Creativity involved a lot of trial and error mostly error. I have tested this astrology system not only on myself but on the charts of 20 celebrities and numerous charts I have done for people I have known in my life.

No one I am sure has done anything like me, so as a result I am able to do things in the practical physical-spiritual direction that nobody else can do. I understand that most people stay within the comfort zone that having a similar mindset and personality as a lot of other also have. Few people really get outside of this spiritual comfort zone since it is very scary and difficult to do. Also it is very hard to survive in a world like this that demands such a high degree of spiritual conformity from its inhabitants. Only people who are born with an inability to conform can really become the pioneers that open new doors in this world. Often necessity(desperation)is the mother of invention and individual and societal crisis is required in order for what it takes for really positive creative change to happen in this world.

Being a spirtual pioneer on a spiritually backward planet.

I am a spiritual pioneer who connects with God(the universal spirit that maintains our physical/spiritual reality so that it is able to serve us well provided we put in the effort to understand how it functions) directly. I am a spiritual independent free to develop the most effective spiritual theories and techniques possible. People in this world connect with God various ways, with various degrees of effectiveness. I do need to stand up for what I have to offer to this world spiritually , since my survival here depends on this. So many people do not read my  blog posts on the spiritual. I am creating videos on youtube and struggling to reach people with my innovative spiritual ideas and techniques.

Spiritual development requires one find/develop better spiritual theories that enable one to handle reality in heavier doses. The better one is able to handle the difficulty that come from living in this hard resistant physical reality, the more effective one will become spiritually. Spiritual/meditative techniques can help one to become really good at becoming able to handle extremely difficult spiritual/emotional states provided one has guiding spiritual theories that enable one to see the value in putting up with such difficult and often painful states of consciousness. One ability to handle pain and difficulties has a lot to do with how much one can achieve in life. The truth can be quite painful, and one has to be able to face the pain that comes with the truth in order to grow further spiritually in a world that has a lot of serious problems that cause pain and hardship for those being directly affected by them.

The spiritual theories that enable one to handle the most discomfort and difficulty are going to be the ones that are closer to the truth. Tough spiritual(meditative) training can not be handled unless one is programmed with spiritual theories that are good enough to enable one to see the great value in putting up with a high level of spiritual difficulty. The spiritual beliefs of the past that have such a foothold in this world are very responsible the current state this world is in and tend to be addictive and resistant to being improved on. Science keeps working on improving on its theories and knowledge, we need to do the same in the spiritual area. The spiritual senses have to be developed in order for one to tune into what is happening on the spiritual level. Tough spiritual/meditative training can not only help one to tune in better to the spiritual, but help one to better understand how things on the spiritual level works so that one can have positive impact spiritually there. Better spiritual theories then can be developed which will help one to train even harder spiritually and thus tune in ever better to what is happening on the spiritual level. It is a constant circular type(spiral) process of training, tuning in, developing better theories, and then training even harder, and tuning in even better, and developing even better spiritual theories.

The spiritual theories that make one the most effective spiritually at dealing with the serious problems in this world will be the ones that are closest to the truth. The problems in this world are all rooted to a considerable degree in the spiritual. As we improve the spiritual state this world is in by improving the spiritual state we are in as its individual inhabitants, we will automatically be inspired to effectively take on the challenges that are happening on the physical level here. So often we are handicapped by out of control desires and emotions that not only handicap our effectiveness in this world, but can cause a lot of harm and destruction in this world. A rational spiritual approach to solving the problems in this world can not work if we are unable to properly direct our emotions and desires in a way that is constructive and healthy.

Addictions prevent one from making progress spiritually, and addictive/autocratic type beliefs do the same. It may be comforting to be addicted to that which you are familiar with spiritually, but we can become comfortable with a more adventurous spiritual approach in which we are constantly exploring new spiritual territory and discovering better ways to understand this universe on the spiritual level. Going beyond ones comfort level is required in order to achieve a lot in this world. And achieving a lot in this world can be extremely rewarding to ones spiritual wellbeing and bring more actually spiritual comfort/peace than one will ever get from being stuck where one is at spiritually.

My spiritual theories are developed rationally with no concern for the fact that they may be contrary to the spiritual theories/beliefs so many hold so dear. I am not here to win a popularity contest, but am here to get the most out of my capabilities and thus contribute as much as I am able that I have of value to the world. I am “differently abled” with my abilities very focused in the spiritual on a very core level. I am a very unique person as to my abilities, but everyone is unique to some degree, and can get more out of themselves by further developing this uniqueness(specialness). I do identify strongly with those individuals who are the most unique(specialized) in their capabilities and that often are destroyed or greatly damaged by a world that is so much into forcing a rigid type of mental/spiritual conformity that is greatly responsible for holding back positive spiritual/social progress on this planet.

Pushing the edge in a way that I do not at all envision anyone else doing!

I have really been pushing the edge extremely intensely lately as a spiritual pioneer in a backward world must. I know an awful lot of people are not capable of understanding someone like me very well. I just focus on those that are capable of appreciating my efforts to some degree. So many people are addicted to spiritual beliefs that limit their ability to get more out of themselves and to understand that some people get a lot more out of themselves spiritually than they do. We need to respect those who are specialists who excel in really limited and focused areas. I get along well with people who are really specialized and are willing to pay the price to become really good at something. The spiritual is just another field of study that one can achieve a lot in provided one does the work. I do not see the spiritual field as any more important than any other field required to make our world function well. We all are unique and can excel in some area that is important to this world. I just happen to have my abilities limited in a way that I can only do well in exploring new territory in the spiritual area. I focus on a practical type spirituality that work well in the challenging physical world we all(reading this)exist in right now here on this Earth!

Wild spiritual experiences vs reality based ones

I avoid a lot of posts on spiritual sites about spiritual experience that people explain they are having that do not easily fit into the realistic way I envision the spiritual actually works.. The imagination can often go wild and misinterpret what is actually happening to someone. I do believe there exists a spiritual/emotional center in the brain that one can refer to as the “third eye” with the pineal gland playing a role in. I do believe that since we all are spirits we all are connected spiritually to others spirits to some degree on the spiritual level with the spiritual parts of our brain playing a key role.

I am programmed with spiritual theories that give me a very practical spiritual focus that is useful in the real world I exist in right now. I do not have spiritual beliefs/theories that allow my imagination to distort my spiritual perspective that much. This is because I made an effort to make myself that way with my reality based spiritual training. Of course we all are always connected spiritually to some degree since we need to be so in order to function well as the social being we are. If we lost this spiritual connection, we would cease to exist as a spirit and our body needs an operating spirit in order to exist. Some sociopaths have very distorted spirits, but still have spirits and can cause a lot of trouble as a result.

No higher life form is without a spirit with quite a bit of development so as to be able to relate emotionally with others especially of their own species. There exists these invisible connection between individuals and we also have a connection to our own body that can be maintained even when we project our spirit to quite a degree outside of oneself. Our body is very vulnerable when it has a lot of its spirit projected somewhere else. But, I find that the spirit can quickly return to its body when needed. I feel that one can learn a lot about how the spirit behaves by studying one dreams(while asleep). When one meditates one can go into dream-like states in which the subconscious mind will attempt to interpret what is actually happening spiritually to you. But in any dream-like state, one spiritual beliefs/theories will have to help the subconscious translate what is happening into dream/symbolic language. The accuracy of this interpretation will be limited to how well ones spiritual theories connect one to reality.

Those who have experienced life really intensely and have as a result gotten a really strong dose of reality, will tend to have dreams that are more aligned with reality and of practical value as a result. Those who are less realistic and willing to accept wild beliefs and a wild imagination needed to support those beliefs will have dreams or visions(often appearing quite real)that do not interface with reality well and are to me quite removed from how the spiritual actually works. We all are constantly learning lessons, and to me it is so important to have spiritual beliefs/theories that help us to function well spiritually in the physical world we now exist in. It is not safe to have ones spirit be affected by spiritual visions that weakens ones ability to be really strongly connected to the physical reality we exist in and that requires we act responsibly and maintain a high level of vigilance most of the time. One can get into a lot of trouble if one does not know what one is doing spiritually. Having strong survival energy is so important when one deal with the spiritual on a really intense level. One can get into a lot of serious trouble if one is not careful what one is doing spiritually!!

I have gotten really sick a number of times and also had near death experiences(1992) as a result of not knowing enough of what I was doing spiritually in the past. My strong survival energy and never give up approach helped me to survive and become really good at avoiding really serious trouble in the future. I have always taken the spiritual very seriously and that is why I believe I survived. My really intense spiritual focus enables me to get away with a lot that would not be safe for others to deal with. I was born really good in this area, and had to be to survive in this world. Necessity is often the mother of invention, and I feel like that is why I am good at what I do.

Too much forgiveness can harm ones ability to positively transform this world spiritually!

I forgive people, but I do not forgive the type of spiritual energy that is responsible for all the abusive/destructive behavior that happens in this world. That is why I am a spiritual pioneer working hard to improve the level of spirituality on this planet. I work hard to keep my spiritual energy really healthy and work hard to ensure that unhealthy spiritual energy either stays clear of me, or is accommodating to being transformed by me. I often do have to take on or defend myself from toxic type spiritual energy in order to ensure that the energy close to me is not working against me too much. I am use to a type of spiritual explosive energy happening around me, and because of my training I seem to get positive results despite shocking people and often needing to take a sort of protective cover shortly afterwards. Being a spiritual pioneer does have its dangers, but this world will not be easily transformed, and will not be done by the timid. It will not be easy to improve on the spiritual status quo in this world, but it can be done. But, one has to often be willing to push the edge and handle the danger associated with it in order to really positively transform things in a world that is backward and brutal spiritually. Forgiveness has its place, but to forgive and not try to transform the energy responsible for inadequate spiritual behavior is not a positive thing.

After posting this a person gave this response elsewhere: “Hi Thomas, love your work and posts. I am respectful of your view on forgiveness. I on the other hand believe their are 3 key concepts in which one must master in regards to spirtual mastery. 1. Unconditional love 2. Unconditional acceptance 3. Unconditional forgivness. God loves, accepts and forgives all of us. If we are to truly becone one with god, or enlightened, we must be able to forgive all unconditionally. Again just my opinion and of course your truth is yours and i respect that 🙂 much love brother and i love what you are doing and your leadership in spiritual practices!”

Here was my response to this: I just go with that which works in the real world which I am very strongly connected to because of the extremely rough training I do and the direct experience I have in it. I just do not automatically believe in what is widely circulating in this world psychically and thus has a strong appeal even if it is not well enough in balance with reality. I do forgive people as I clearly state in the post, but do not accept negative/destructive spiritual energy that lead to unhealthy and destructive behavior. I am very healthy physically and spiritually because of the type of spiritual energy I accept and what I do not believe meets my high spiritual standards. I want the best for people, so will not be an enabler of bad conduct and unhealthy habits. My posts need to be read carefully and not quickly dismissed. Spiritual pioneers are often rejected for what they have of value without people taking the time and effort to really understand where they are coming from. It is so easy to just cling to inadequate beliefs without taking the time to explore something new, that is outside of ones comfort zone. We can all get closer to the common truth that govern the common reality we exist in.

I added the extra above because:   I tend to be triggered by others who have differing spiritual theories/beliefs than I do. I do not like to waste anything I write that can further explain where I am coming from. I am programmed in the spiritual theories that I developed to be very effective in helping me and others at coping really well with the common reality all of us share and have impact on. I do not have a lot of other spiritual theories strongly programmed into me, since they would counteract and harm the effectiveness of my own spiritual theories. I do have an intuitive connection to a lot of spiritual theories/beliefs that are out there in the world, but do not have them taking up the important space in my subconscious needed by my own really effective guiding spiritual beliefs. Deep within oneself spiritually is only room for certain core beliefs, and one has to make sure they are the really effective ones. One does not need to be an expert in all spiritual/ religious beliefs/theories that are out there in this world in order to become really advanced in the spiritual area. One actually functions best spiritually when you only retain the best spiritual theories and the reasons why they work better than the others that compete with them for effectiveness in this challenging world we exist in.

Here is a link to my meditative walking blog post, that includes all sorts of other really effective meditative/spiritual training techniques:

Communication with the dead

I believe this happens often in ones dreams especially soon after a loved one has died. Communication of the spirit to spirit type is not perfect since it relies on telepathy(psychic ability) to work. A translation has to be done by the subconscious mind which will translate with the accuracy that it has programmed into it. Psychic ability is never perfect, but varies with good training and programming. I did connect with my brother in a dream immediately after his accidental death in which he express his feelings about what happened to him. Feelings count a lot on the spiritual level. I did have further communications with him in which I remember reminding him that he was dead. I also did connect with my mother after her death at age 93. She had dementia before she died, but I remember telling her while dreaming that I was glad that her mind was back to normal. When some one dies, I believe their spirit loses the burdens imposed by a poorly functioning body, so it did not surprise me that her mental capabilities came back not long after she died. I am a spiritual pioneer, so I do not automatically accept that which is popularly accepted by a lot of people about the spiritual. I believe we are still in the dark ages as to our understanding of the spiritual as the poor spiritual state this world is in right now demonstrates.

I am very serious and intense for good reason!

I tend to respond to everything seriously. Although I do sense the humor in things. I am very much a stoic and tend to focus very much on a survival level, since that is what makes me really effective spiritually, which I require in order to maintain a presence in this world and continue with my purpose. I push the edge everyday, so this make me very tough and serious spiritually, which I require to survive and work hard to straighten out this world spiritually.

I am preparing to get a website ready to reach people with the type of very tough and effective spirituality that I feel this world badly needs. The success of the website is dependent on me having something to offer that the world really needs to deal with the serious issues that exist here. The website keeps being delayed, so I am always trying to get even stronger so as to feed more energy into helping the people working on it to finish their job.

My life(living conditions) always has challenges in the present that remind me how I must always stay vigilant and maintain an intensely sober attitude. I meditate to keep things in my life from falling apart and to make the needed progress to keep my mission and survival in this world continuing.

The spiritual is powered by passion and I need to have the type of serious passion that will make a difference in this world while I present advanced spiritual training techniques and the theories that must come with them to a world that is quite backward spiritually when it comes being able to handle the problems of a technologically(scientifically)advanced age. I survived the 65 years on this planet because of my strong purpose that goes beyond just myself spiritually. I had to develop myself spiritually in order to do something to straighten out a world that I personally felt the spiritual inadequacies that exist here.

Why have I had so much time in my life to focus extremely hard creatively on the spiritual?

I tried hard to find a way to fit into the job market, but was unable to due to my visual memory and finer motor skills limitations. I did manage to survive due to family help, but felt I had to be extremely frugal and purposeful, and work harder in the area(the spiritual) that I have a lot of ability in. I always saw(I believe for very real reasons) my life as one continuous crisis and still do. I felt like I had to work harder than anyone else, so that I would have the spiritual strength to do things others would not be capable of doing. I wanted to be in a position that I had the strength of spiritual character(and intense enough connection with reality) to over power the energy of those who would question how much effort I put in to being successful in life.

I have had to push myself extremely hard all of my life, since I felt I had no other choice in order to survive in a world that is extremely rough on very unique “differently abled” individuals like me. What a lot of people find not very difficult to do in this modern world, I find really difficult. But, I found that I could handle better what other found really hard to deal with in the spiritual/emotional area, and saw this as a very useful advantage I had. So, I decided to apply as hard a level of difficulty to developing myself and my spiritual theories and techniques as I could possibly do.

The type of spiritual training I developed and do is more advanced and difficult than anything available out there is this world right now. Why do I believe this is true? Because I put an extreme amount of effort in developing and testing these training techniques(especially in the past 3 decades of my life) along with developing spiritual theories using the development of a new astrology system based on them to force me to develop them further. My astrology system was needed to tune me in spiritually so that I would have the self awareness and spiritual awareness to handle the most extreme and difficult of spiritual/emotional states in a way that could enable to direct even the roughest spiritual/emotional energy in a positive/constructive direction toward bringing more positive spiritual/physical results to a world that has so many serious problems rooted in the spiritual that need people motivated by really strong spiritual purpose to tackle and find adequate remedies for.

Here is my very useful blog post on meditative walking which is an extremely effective spiritual training technique: https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/……

Passion powers the spiritual and needs to be effectively directed

Where your passion is directed tell a lot about where you are at spiritually. Emotions/passion powers the spiritual. People often are not that willing to blame the predominating and inadequate spiritual beliefs/theories of the times for the messed up state this world is in. They often would rather put their valuable spiritual passion into polarizing politics or wild conspiracy theories. There are many ways to avoid dealing directly with the spiritual roots of the problem in a world in which delusional spiritual energy and beliefs/theories dominates. Of course a lot of passion can be eaten up or dulled by indulging in various excesses in creature comforts and desires or going into some insulating escapist spiritual state.. Obtaining more of the truth can be extremely hard to handle especially by those who are weak due to overindulging themselves.

My really stoic spiritual training approach helps me to be able to get a stronger grip on what is true spiritually. It takes really hard work to transform the state this world is in with all of its serious problems and it all starts on the extremely important spiritual level which underlies and thus greatly impacts all of the reality we exist in. It is about time we develop the spiritual/emotional maturity to direct our passions and desires in a way that counts. We can only do this if we have really good spiritual theories programmed inside us and do the type of spiritual training that enables us to effectively utilize this programming.

I have many blog posts on this site dealing with what I have come up with spiritually as a result of a lifetime with an extremely serious focus in this area. People often dismiss those who are willing to go up against the spiritual status quo on a planet that tends to be attracted to autocratic type spiritual beliefs that are not open to being really seriously questioned and tested as to their effectiveness in transforming the spiritual state this world is in. The spiritual underlies all of the reality we exist in, and any changes we make to this underlying spiritual level in ourselves or in the collective consciousness of this planet will directly impact what is happening on the physical level. We can not tackle the serious problems that exist on this planet unless we develop the spiritual strength(will) and awareness required to do it.  Here s my very valuable blog post on meditative walking:    https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2016/10/04/meditative-walking-developing-a-stronger-spiritual-connection-with-the-physical/
