“A breakthrough for day after today’s teachers, healers, and leaders who want to be their higher selves now.” — Catalyst
“The Earth Life Series is a trilogy of books that I must confess I did not read in their proper order. I didn’t discover the series until I received the proof copy of Spiritual Growth – the last book in the series – and read from cover to cover. Unlike some channels whose messages seem to need hours of decoding, Orin’s language is crystal clear. For an example, see page 32 of the March/April 1989 issue of Body, Mind, & Spirit.
I then went on to read the first two books in the series, Living with Joy and Personal Power Through Awareness. Surprisingly there is no duplication of information. Orin’s ideas remain clear, concise and eminently practical. An astonishing array of life situations are exposed and opened to light with a compassionate understanding of the human condition. Orin’s suggestions are laced with examples and stories that help the reader see how they work. Each chapter is followed by worksheets and meditations so the lessons can be immediately put into practice.
The meditations help to open pathways for the teachings to be absorbed. The teachings, in turn, augment the meditation experience so together they work to bring about change.
I found that the writing at all times seemed new, which to me, is a sure sign of spiritual depth. When I reread sections weeks later they seemed quite different. Of course, they were the same; it was I who had changed. Some teachings that had seemed difficult were now obvious and I realized how powerful many of the exercises had been. It is not that the information was new, only that it had been presented with a simplicity that allowed it to be grasped at many different levels.
It is this very simplicity combined with unerring guidance to the highest good that make the Earth Life Series a powerful light along whichever path of growth you choose.” (Body Mind Spirit magazine, October 1989)
“Spiritual Growth is a way of looking at life, of getting in touch with what Roman calls your higher self. This higher self is within us all, Roman believes, waiting to be tapped with some practice. Roman shows us how. This is a positive book, one that takes the golden rule and expands it way beyond personal relationships.
Spiritual Growth seeks to strip us of blinders, to see good even in those we don’t like, to find love within us, to use the power of enveloping ourselves in light and then transmitting that light out to someone we want to reach. It’s a spiritual book, but not kooky in the sense that it asks us to go into a lotus position or climb some mountain to find nirvana. Roman is a practical spiritualist, saying to the reader to stop in the middle of a trying day and take a deep breath, to reach inside to find a direction. The mind is a wonderful storehouse of energy, Roman believes, just waiting to be unleashed for our personal benefit.
But Roman doesn’t believe that we should just hold all of this spirituality inside. Looking outward to find good in everything that we do, Roman writes, is the way to manifest positive beliefs that heighten your outlook on life.”(The Tribune, Colorado Press) — Reviews
There is a danger today in the “new-age” milieu whereby psychism is mistaken for spirituality and astral glamour is misconstrued as inner development. In the 1970s the metaphysically disenchanted in the West enthroned the Eastern gurus as pillars of high spirituality; but in the 1980s, this habit of adulation shifted to disincarnate light beings. At least the gurus were personally present to scold disciples at moments of spiritual aberration. This isn’t conceivable in today’s floriation of channeled guides sans credentials, and some well-intentioned neophytes might find themselves routed unhappily into the developmental ditch from unreliable texts. In many respects Spiritual Growth is an instructive exemplar of both this inherent danger and the uplifting message of light that most channeled works strive to impart. It is the fifth in a series by California channel Roman-a warm, friendly, simple dictation on die elementary principles of personal development presented by a disincamate spirit named Orin. The intentions are laudable; namely, to move readers into a participation in the higher dimensional expressions of the Self. This is facilitated through advice, examples, and visualizations. Generally, the text, which is entirely Orin’s, moves the reader forward pleasantly into an arena of light, hope, and positive attitudes. — From Independent Publisher

As you become attuned to your Higher Self, you also become aware of the dimensions your Higher Self exists in. You’ll consciously join with the higher community of beings your Higher Self is already a part of.
Part of the higher purpose of the community of higher beings is to work with the Universal Mind and Higher Will to assist all life in evolving. They work continually to assist people in awakening, working with the Higher Will to broadcast spiritual energies. They help make the journey easier for all who are seeking growth, serving others, or requesting assistance. You’ll become more aware of the work that is going on in the higher dimensions to carry out the plan of evolution. With this awareness, it will be even easier to know and carry out your own higher purpose.
Some of these beings act as guides and work intensely with a particular person but even so contributing in other ways. Other beings contribute in various ways to assist all who are open to and asking for assistance. Every call for help is at all times heard. Light and assistance is immediately sent from both your Higher Self and these high beings. Every resource is made available and nothing is spared when you ask for assistance. If you could only know how much love there is for you in the higher dimensions, you would never feel alone or worry again.
There is no feeling of separateness in the higher realms. All beings contribute wherever they may be able to create the most good, just as you work together with each other to create important things in your reality. Sometimes your Higher Self will work with you on something; other times your Higher Self will work together with high spiritual guides to empower you and assist you with your lifes work and spiritual growth.
In the higher dimensions there is never criticism, only mutual respect and kind words. There is gentleness, humility, and a focus on the work that is to be done. All beings hold a high vision for each other and send each other unconditional love. There is no thought of the self that doesnt also include the well-being of others.
If anyone is working on a project, it is everyone’s concern. There is no feeling that one must do it all alone. All work receives the energy support of all. There is never a thought of scarcity or competition; all is viewed to be a part of the divine and perfect order of the universe. It is an inclusive group and all can join who want to be of assistance. There is still a sense of individuality in the dimensions you Higher Self lives in, yet the individual is connected to all other beings in a much greater way than in your reality.
Your connection to these higher dimensions comes through your higher centers of telepathy. Most of you receive telepathically through your emotional centers. You experience this when you are around people and pick-up what they are feeling. Part of spiritual growth is learning to become transparent to the emotional messages of others, and opening your higher centers of telepathy so You’ll receive guidance from you Higher Self.
Your higher telepathic centers are mental and intuitive; you receive clear mental guidance or an intuitive sense of what to do through these centers. You automatically open your higher centers of telepathy as you align with your Higher Self and hear and follow Its guidance.
You can use your higher centers of telepathy to send messages to the Higher Selves of others or become aware of the soul-level consciousness present in other life-forms, such as plants, animals, and minerals. Through higher telepathy You’ll become aware of the many high beings serving mankind, you own personal guide if you choose, and the dimensions of your Higher Self.
You connect with any of these high beings by imagining you are connecting with them. If you are working on a project, ask for extra guidance ands assistance with it. Imagine light is being sent to you, your work, or your loved ones. You are not alone; there is much assistance, support, and empowerment available for you and your world-work when you connect with this higher community.
You can work in the inner planes by becoming inner-directed rather than outer-directed.
As you live as you Higher Self, guidance and information will come from within rather than from without. Guidance from you Higher Self is received in your higher telepathic centers and transmitted to you through your imagination and mind. Since your connection to the higher dimensions comes from within, pay attention to your thoughts, inner sense and imagination.
Meditation is a powerful tool for becoming aware of these higher dimensions and your Higher Self guidance. Mediation allows you to quiet your normal thoughts and listen to your Higher self. It allows you to pay more attention to your inner reality of pictures, images, and feelings. As you meditate you increase your vibration and frequency, and the dimensions of your Higher Self become more knowable to you . Meditation increases your sensitivity to ideas, concepts, and images from the higher realms and your Higher Self.
Meditation can involve states of relaxation, statement and concentration. Meditation can take many formsfrom silencing your mind to concentrating on a project. Meditation is an inner reflective attitude, a time of concentrated thought. You are meditating when you are focused and thinking about how You’ll assist others or carry out your life purpose. Meditation can consist of sending light and love to people or sitting quietly and silencing your mind. Things that allow you to relax, concentrate, or silence your mind – long walks in the woods, listening to music, and sitting quietly and thinking about thingswill connect you with your Higher Self and the higher dimensions.
