How to Build a Launching Pad for Your Inner work
An Exploration of the Unseen World
We have access to an unbelievably vast world of knowing. The Unseen world makes sup 95% of everything. there is great wisdom waiting for us. How do we reach it? How do we tap into its depth of wisdom?
We connect from within and learn to interpret what we are shown. We build a launching pad that propels us to the deer work we are to do, the deeper wisdom we are to understand.

How to Build a Launching Pd for Your inner Work
95% of the wold is Unseen. Think how much we have to learn when we figure out how to go exploring there.
We can, you know. We can go exploring, we can learn, we can bring back ideas that will enrich our planetary life.
We do that by developing a platform of listening, a foundation for understanding and a launching pad for exploring.
If you want to understand the increased creative power that lives in the unseen world, you need to build your own launching pad Then you can go exploring.
Welcome to Reflections of a Deeper Song.
I’m Cara Lumen, spiritual philosopher and founder of the Deeper Song Community I am a cosmic explorer who consciously travels into the unseen world to serve as a bridge to help us expand our relationship with the spiritual world. I share what I learn and guide those who are ready to the next level so we can sing a deeper song. Thank you for being a part of this journey.
In this episode, we’re going to explore ‘How to build a Launching Pad for your Inner Work.”
I learned Transcendental Meditation in my 30’s. (I’m 87 now.) Yes, I did it because the Beatles did it, but it was a rather amazing experience. That was probably my first foray into the Unseen world. There have been many since then.
The more I explore the Unseen World, the more I am shown. I think we are taken to the next step when we are ready. But here are several steps you can take to build your own launching pad for exploring the unseen world. I have a few easy ones to begin with.
Because working in the inner world is unseen work, we can’t exactly make any plans. We must simply learn to open ourselves up to unexpected possibilities. We can develop techniques to take us on the inner exploration but where we go is, well, simply where we go. Our job is to stay open and learn as much as we can when we do journey to the unseen world.
First, we have to build our launching pad.
There are three foundations steps
1- Deepen your roots for stability.
2- Broaden your horizon by expanding your awareness.
3 – Listen to your inner guidance
Roots hols us in place
Roots are our foundation. We get to build roots, but we also get to examine what we already have in place to be certain they are creating the foundation we want and need.
So how, exactly do we Deepen our roots for stability?
Let’s begin by seeing what foundation you are standing on. Take a close look at your personal spiritual belief system. Have you gradually and organically developed your own spiritual belief system based on an exploration of – whatever spiritual practice called to you?
Or are you are still caught up in what you were taught by someone else along the line that were really their beliefs, not ones you want to embrace
Question your beliefs. See what core beliefs are guiding you today and if, in the light of where you are in your life at this point in time, they are still valid. Release those no-longer-true-for-you beliefs. Question all of them. Expand your beliefs as you expand your consciousness.
I took a comparative religion class in college. I had never heard of many of the ones we studied. I came away wondering how am I to know if what I believe (as a presbyterian encouraged by my mother) is right? It’s a question I’ve been exploring all my life The answer is there is no right – there are only variations of our human core longing for oneness.
I have built a strong foundation in metaphysics upon which I have layered Taoism and Shamanism. Each one of those conscious explorations has given me insights and tools for inner growth. I have adapted and selected what called to me, what I wanted and needed. I continue to select and adjust every day as my awareness of the unseen world expands.
You deepen your roots by examining your spiritual foundation and making certain it is relevant for what you feel and think today.
The second step is to broaden your horizon by broadening your awareness
Look up . Look out Look under. Look over…Keep looking.
First, you have to believe there is an unseen world and then you have to believe you can get there.
Affirmative prayer was one of the first tools I used to have a conscious effect on life. I spent a lot of time taking the negative thoughts and beliefs out of my vocabulary. It made a big difference.
Along with that was added a deep awareness of the power of my own words and thoughts. One of the most life-changing phases is “you get what you believe you deserve and what you believe is possible.”
Change your thinking, change your life. Change your words, change your life.
I retrained myself to speak and think in positive phrases. It transformed my life.
So one of my early awareness was that my words and thoughts and actions created my life experience.
That was a form of working with the unseen World but at that time I did not see it as that.
The launching pad for work in the Unseen Word that I currently use is shamanic journeying. It is a form of meditation – visualizing, intuitive, receptive meditation.
From a still and contemplate place within, I create a Sacred Garden where everything is a metaphor that only I am to interpret. And everything in the Sacred Garden represents some aspect of me.
When you ask questions of the Unseen World, you get answers. Some very obvious, some rather subtle.
I journey with a specific intention and interpret whatever metaphors show up – a guide, a protector, a helping spirit, an object, an element – that is meant for only me to interpret. The unseen world speaks to me through my meditative openness.
The amazing power of what is thought of as “Energy Work” is in direct contact with the Unseen World.
The foundation I’m building includes an expanding use of sound healing and deepening my Qi Gong practice so I can create a strong launch pad on the physical plane for these inner explorations.
You deepen your roots by creating ceremony and ritual that speaks to you, that centers you, that deepens your connection with the unseen world
So we’ve deepened your roots for stability by expanding our connection with nature.
We’ve broadened your horizon by deepening your awareness and connection with the Unseen World.
Th this step is to listen to your inner guidance and learn o interpret what you discover in the Unseen World.
What do you want to explore in the Unseen World?
Your mind can’t tell you what you want to explore because, well, the unseen world is invisible and our mind is simply our physical planetary mind, stuck in its humanness.
To access the Unseen World all you have to do is be willing to explore.
Set an intuition, go to your Sacred Garden, and ask a question. Then see what shows up.
You may know what you want to learn or you may need to ask your helping spirits to guide you. I spent many journeys asking how to raise my vibration in order to help lift the vibration of the physical plane planet. You know – a small project.
Once you ask a question simply listen to your inner guidance.
Once I ask a question, the answers begin to appear. Show me. Guide me. How can I? Please make that metaphor clearer.
Trust what shows up. Trust that it’s the perfect message for you. Trust that you’re interpreting it in the most supportive manner. Journal what you discover in order to give yourself more clarity. I sometimes draw a picture of the journey that helps me understand the message and serves as a reminder of what I learned.
I get an unexpected compelling idea and go exploring in a journey and that gives me a response that – of course – raises more questions or offers a wider variety of solutions. So I choose one aspect and keep ongoing. I can also come back and explore another path.
I journey every day.
How do you interpret what you learn in the invisible world?
That’s up to you and what’s calling you. I explore an idea that calls to me, figure out how to apply it, and write my ideas in posts and podcasts and my newsletter.
Sometimes I don’t have a complete answer, I simply have a new step to take which invites more questions.
Begin by exploring.
Begin with a simple meditative journey. Set an intention, close your eyes, listen to a shamanic drumming track if you like, and see what shows up. Journal what you experienced and perhaps draw a picture.
Repeat as often as you like.
Explore your ancestors. Explore your future self. Explore nature and learn her lessons. Explore your Soul Star. Explore the Unseen World. Trust what shows up. Trust that the lesson, the ideas for usage are just for you and it is time for you to hear it and understand it.
Deepen your inner work and go exploring in the Unseen world.
What’s your foundation?
What’s your spiritual launching pad?
You’re already a launching pad for your inner world exploration. Know that.
Deepen your intuitive foundation and take off. That’s how you build a landing pad for your inner world
