Arcanum: The Cosmic Egg (June 2016)

Season 2, Episode 2
Available worldwide

We have all heard the popular refrain that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. But where does the soul come from and what is its connection with the body? William Henry explains the cosmic origin of physical and spiritual life from the moment our souls were brought into being and throughout the entirety of our existence. We have always been a part of a greater consciousness and we can see this in the imagery of the cosmic egg. This presentation was originally webcast June 9, 2016.

William Henry is an amazing teacher and I appreciate these programs so much!

jetschutte, posted on August 22, 2016

The episodes of William Henry 'the awakened souls" are incredible! Amazing pictures illustrate so beautifully the story Henry is telling us, thank you so much! This is awesome!
The only thing difficult for me is trying to follow the words spoken while beautiful music is also attracting the attention. I found the voice of Henry even diminishing when the music is on. Can technology give me the opportunity to listen to Henry without music? ; )

I just want to express my deepest gratitude for everyone at Gaia for ALL you do for us! We are SO very fortunate to have had people like you put together a place to get the information we all so badly need in these times. I have found everything on Gaia to be of help in one way or another for my journey. When I found this "place" I was almost overwhelmed with joy! I have always had "things" going on my entire life! I have spent many hours divining head first into books and truly Gaia has filled in so many gaps that I have lost count! AND, not to mention this is a "place", a community of like minded people, and as far as I can see, minus the trolls!!!
Thank you so much Gaia!!!!
Many many blessings to ALL of you!!!

Thank you Gaia for bringing all of us these amazing teachers.

I love the music of the cosmic egg episode and the info of course! Does anyone know the name & author of the classical music ? I want to meditate to it & play it throughout my home!

SuzannaB@Gaia, posted on June 24, 2016

Thank you for writing! The background music was licensed for this series, and as far as we know, it is not available elsewhere.

Very Good presentation. Keep them coming. Many Blessings

romojanet, posted on June 15, 2016

I am very interested in learning more about this topic. I have started watching this a few times and then stop. I realize that what is interfering with me staying with this program is that William Henry goes too fast. It's helpful when a speaker (or teacher) takes a bit of information and provides examples or short, help the audience digest it. Going to ToastMaster's or some sort of public speaking support would be my recommendation. I think it would be a small adjustment as Henry has a good speaking voice, etc. It's just lacking an essential element, and that is the teaching format needed for the audience to fully follow the info. It's complex and there needs to be some level of building up to the story versus starting with the assumption that the audience knows everything. I am not brand new to this topic, but have a hard time staying focused without good teaching strategies being used. I hope this was helpful. Blessings, Janet

P.S. Please respond whether you agree or disagree with my feedback so William Henry will know if I have a unique concern or if it's validated.

wanderer030ne, posted on July 14, 2016

Janet, I understand your frustration. I was very excited when I discovered Gaia TV and after watching tons of shows have been so hungry for more as these are all subjects I have been either interested in or literally absorbed in through the many many books in my Great Aunt and Uncles Library since as far back as when I began reading at 3 yrs old and have been a sponge since. So, when I suggested this for my friend they said the same thing as you did and I realized that not everyone has been awakened to the the esoteric, metaphysical, science, ancient art and architecture, historical /present day philosophies, religions and so on, as many of us have. I felt bad because I just assumed everyone I've shared these subjects with KNEW as I did the things discussed. My bad. I apologized, but SO grateful that so many people are becoming awake and have over time been putting the pieces of the puzzle together making you all hungry for more! It does take time to catch up, and I know that some of the verbiage and symbolism's he refers to has a vast amount of information behind it or encircled in it. I just assumed and you know what that does! LOL! So I've given my friend as much reference material as one can give without (I again assumed) overwhelming and saw that too was just too much. NOT by any degree is my friend not intellectually or spiritually incapable of absorbing it, it's just such a incredibly vast amount of information to soak up in such a short time. So many names, dates, references...just SO very much material that anyone would have trouble if you haven't had it in your face in it almost your entire life. However, it did help when he began stopping the vid when some reference to a person, date, or piece of information he wasn't familiar with came up and he has been looking it up, reading enough to get some fairly clear information and then noting books or things to look up for later research. It is such fascinating stuff that you can go down a long and tedious "rabbit hole" on just one sentence...I spent my life in "rabbit holes" for so long now that I've grown fur and love carrots!!! But seriously as you do a little referencing and research each time your knowledge and understanding blossoms exponentially! So be patient and go easy on yourself, it will come to you and your mind and even your soul will gain the momentum of a train leaving the train station for a long journey. I agree about William, he is a most adept and pleasant speaker and I enjoy everything I hear. Please enjoy and keep going. If you haven't already done so I would also suggest listening to "The Wisdom Teachings" by David Wilcock and then be fore you reach Video #164 Season 22 Episode 1, I would watch, from the beginning "Cosmic Disclosure" with Corey Goode and David Wilcock. They feature William Henry in season 5 as well and it will bring much "Light" to your understanding...such a fascinating journey...incredibly informative to the here and now. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. I hope this gave you at least a little bit of encouragement to keep at it...brings A LOT of carrots!!! Namaste!

romojanet, posted on August 8, 2016

Thank you, Rabbit. LOL
I have watched several of the Cosmic Disclosure episodes and I am following those fine. I have also watched a lot of Ancient Alien episodes and have been building a background knowledge that way along with other programs, but I do need to do more reading on it. I am going to keep studying this topic, as I find it fascinating. Thank you for taking the time to respond and offer reading suggestions. I am printing it off. I appreciate it.

wanderer030ne, posted on July 14, 2016

I would also like to suggest for you references to "The Law of One" series or better known as "The Ra materials" and something a bit longer and even more in depth would be "The Urantia Book" which you can find in audio on YouTube...they are both in book form. This material is quite interesting and takes a very long time itself to get through but all of the thing William discusses ties into these materials and especially those of David Wilcock...something more on the ancient esoteric side would be books written by Madame Blavatsky called "Isis Unveiled" which is a two book collection, one on esoteric science and the other on spirituality. These books are very intricate and sometimes difficult...I do however think those and religious texts of many many religions and philosophies along with books on the latest astronomy and physics materials will really be of service. Delving into symbolism and ancient languages and texts are ALL of course of great value...I could go on and on listing so much material but I think you'll know where to do your hunting once you begin taking your time stopping and starting the videos every time you have a question and I can guarantee the momentum of knowledge and understanding you will gain will come faster and faster as it rolls down their amazing tracks! When i suggested religious texts I'm sure you know I meant books of the bible, current and removed (The Apocrypha) as well as "The Bhagavad Gita" "The Talmud", "The Koran", tapping into Buddhism, Hinduism, the Zoroastrian beliefs and the Gnostics, along with poets such as Rumi and Khalil Gibran and even Taoism. Then ANYTHING you can get your hands on about the ancient Egyptians and the gods of that time and place...well I am sure KNOW you know that! Of course people such as Socrates and Plato...There is a site on the internet at where you will discover a plethora of texts all in one place. It's a wonderful site! Almost boundless!
Well enough. As you can see I get quite excited about it ALL!!! There is so much so many writers so many text from the ancient peoples to modern times. Studying the Incan, Aztec and and Ameican Indian writings and legends of all tribes even the African Dogon Tribes . Shamanism and Alchemy...I'm sure you know. There is sooooo much that it can be just overwhelming. I have been stringing and connecting and tying things from the oldest to the newest and the list just keeps going and going and going but in each and every one of these texts you will find such gems of wisdom, truth and knowledge that will astound you as those pieces of the puzzles fall into place. Gosh, I know I've mentioned ancient art and architecture...ok I am and have over stepped my bounds...I do apologize again. Time to get beck at it. I'm on my second round of Arcanum myself...Thanks for being patient.

This was just the introduction ... he will fill in the 'gaps' in the episodes. A great thing about streaming (as you know I'm sure) is that you can pause and replay! I've followed William since the beginning and have experienced his presentations in person. He is one of the best presenters around. Just remember, this was an introduction!

Marsha, Thank you so much. I am going to keep poking around and watch another episode.

together as one they split into individuality
both threads form the first string- the beginning of everything
e first light- the birth of love -the Cosmic Explosion
It replicates itself through union, conception- intention, manifestation
~ with every mistake, we should surely be learning
we are the ones- the ones we have been waiting for
we are the watchers- the children
its only us, there is no more-
outside ourselves all is one
the cycle has transcended
star brothers & sisters return
we are the watchers
in harmony and unity we are free
the veil has been lifted- Open your third eye to see

jenasisgreer, posted on June 14, 2016

I wrote a story that feels more like a memory--that was published in 2011- My soulmate is an Alien
It was about a soul whom I would hang out with in the Aethers between lives and we had never been physical together- but he was going to join me on earth this time so we could experience each other physically- as the story evolved, he came from inner earth-

jenasisgreer, posted on June 14, 2016

I partook in ceremony a few years ago- was greeted with apparitions of several men from different cultures all chanting Take The Dao- over & over- maybe 40 minutes in, I went to trance- fell to the floor and traveled through all physical into a Great Golden Bosom - I wept in honor and humility and gratitude
the next day I looked up what it meant to Take the Dao- It means take the Great Path or the Great Way- I was unclear what that meant until you- Your work with David and Corey and everything here has continuously confirmed what Ive thought most of my life- alone--- I asked so many for answers and they had none- until NOW
Thank you- the confirmation- WOW <3

jenasisgreer, posted on June 14, 2016

It is well known that ancient cultures all over the globe knew of systems outside our own- so, what differentiates humanity one hundred years ago from all previous ages of humanity?
Is that it, the AGE? Such as dark, bronze, golden etc...
Or is it because we are speaking of race3s who are not human, such as the Blue Avions etc...

Thanks William, great lecture . It must have been a surprise when you heard about Corey's bird headed blue sphere beings. I didn't realize icons and religious art was so cosmic, as well as the Egyptian temple wall illustrations. How did they know these things? I'm blown away. Will have to go back and watch all your previous episodes. Oh my poor head, feels like it's bursting. Your breadth of knowledge astounds me.

cadoia, posted on June 13, 2016

sorry mr. William but the ascended masters did not become what they are trough thinking.
and we cant think our way to become like them.
Enlightenment/ascension is outside to domain of the mind.
i love your material but you speak of awakening and at the same time say its a way of thinking.
couldnt be further from the truth.
the way you think is a side effect of your state of being.
a liberated being think very little and when they do its for sure different from us. but you cant go there by trying to willfully think in a certain way. a piece of information may change how you think about something, but its not liberation.
a living GOD within is much much deeper than what the mind could ever comprehend.
spend some time with a real master and you will see how alive and juicy this can be instead of a intellectual shadow substitute.
only direct experience is worth our efforts. go straight to the source.
people are tired. they dont need more information. they need the real thing. true freedom.

The spirits—we call souls--were created by the Creator, God, from his own existence as Spiritual Energy. The home of these spirits is the Spiritual World of God—Heaven—as it is to Angels that God had earlier given birth too. These spirits have three purposes: 1) to be assigned to life forms that have evolved in the Physical Universe as that life form’s soul; 2) to help spiritually guide the life form—hopefully to its destiny given by God—during the life of the life form and remember that life form’s life; and 3) after the death of the life form to return to Heaven as a spirit and share that life form’s memories—along with the memories of all the other life form assignments previously experienced by the spirit—with all other spirits and Angels in Heaven that desire such a “coupling”. In other words, the life form is created within the Physical Universe, and the spirit, or soul, of that life form is assigned by Heaven. This is all explained much more fully in my book “A SPIRITUAL ADVENTURE” and in my blogs at – Go Or Dare Stay Blog Category – A Spiritual Adventure Series.

I'm so grateful to have found these series, Great work and explanation. Also confirmation about work I'm doing, in my paintings and therapy work for young and old whereby I also make use of the auric egg. Sometimes a good thing the work has been done before we have insight into the meaning of it all.
I'm intrigued by the subconscious symbolic work that's coming forth and do believe in a greater awakening of all. Thank you so much.

Thank you William I love your shows and thank you for sharing your amazing passion and work with us.

The Dogon tribe have been talking about the cosmic mother Amma and her Egg , the womb, the black hole at the center of the milky way galaxy.

I believe all of us together are exchanging thoughts and frequencies and pioneering the future.

I also believe the origin of the soul is a frequency that we cannot grasp yet maybe when we do ascend we will.

I am glad to be part of this gaia community and we are making a huge change that ripples out from within us out into the world.

Much Love and Light to you all!

Yes, our future or Ascended Self will come and manifest to our current self ( in some way) ...if This is the lifetime you will Awaken and Ascend. My I AM Ascended Self Manifested to me as a Beautiful Light Being in 1988. She entered into my room in my house and the minute she came in I was standing in the room and fell to my knees and bowed before her. She was with me for a while never speaking but instead ' transmitting' through images, and deep feeling. A far more accurate way to give truth... than using words or telepathy.

We have ' this lifetime' to release all the old patterns and to allow our Divine Child to rise up and shine through. This Divine Child is Pure Trust and Lives ' Moment to Moment' not trapped in the past or future. This Divine Child Hatched from the Cosmic Egg .. is the FIRST FACE of material form and is the nearest to ' The God Head'.

Images are Powerful Tools for Spirit to catalyze awakening in people. St. Teresa had her most profound awakening when she passed an image of Christ on the Cross and wrote the famous and insightful path to God called " Interior Castle". You can buy this book of her own experience with ecstasy and union.

Our Spirit speaks to us through archetypes, symbolism, pictographs, ideographs, and images.

It is VERY Important to KNOW where you are going after this life.... You cannot go where you havent been. Even here on earth when we decide to move to a new city... our ' spiritual/astral/electro-magnetic body ' goes before our physical body and ' lives the future/ the new city' before our body actually does. Awakened Souls will start to visit their Ascended Soul Family and visit the Heavenly realms ... while still in their current lifetime on earth. There is no fear in ' afterlife' if you know what it is and where you are going. Those who fear the unknown in life or death just need to ' awaken to their soul' and let that innocent Divine Child Lead the way.

Again the ' Cosmic Egg' is a powerful pictograph and a cosmic archetype of TRUTH that saturates into our very essence in a more powerful way than descriptive words could ever do. It can also a representation a real ' vehicle/Merkabah', our multi-dimensional self. :)

Your work William is very timely for the world today...who I believe is now ready to walk this path with you. You are definitely ' tapped into' universal wisdom and letting that creative energy flow through you.
