The Story


I am Bill Underwood, the founder of About Conscious Living. That is me to the left (or above if you are on a mobile phone). The beard has a life of its own – most times it is there in some form or other.

The world has been changing quite rapidly around us and if we are to continue here, we need to utilise our Conscious Living understanding globally.

We all need understanding of the underlying rules of life so that we may be more complete, physically, emotionally, spiritually, financially and materially. In order to flourish we need food and shelter as well as a more pleasant lifestyle.

I am the guy who ends up with all of the animals and pets around him wherever he goes.

For some strange reason, this bothers some folks.

This is where we come in. We can provide those who are interested with the necessary understanding to live a significant life on the planet.

We teach personal development as well as design and management of rural property, all of which I have personal experience with.

These are all skills needed in the coming times.

I have been a student of the odd and esoteric since my birth.

I grew up in the bush many miles from town or even neighbours. My early companions were cattle dogs and other farm animals. Did this make me woodsy? You bet!

Possibly because of this, I was gifted early with the ability to converse with the unseen. My parents were very traditional country folk with very fixed opinions on what was possible (read permissible) and what was not.

I learned early to keep my thoughts to myself. Over the years, my abilities have increased and decreased with the flow of life. The interesting thing is that I seemed to learn more when I could see less.

I spent a number of years in Canberra which is an interesting place. Effectively a company town with the company being the higher Government of the country. The work life of most citizens is fairly mundane and possibly to offset this there are many groups studying all aspects of the odd and paranormal. I spent time with some of these and noticed that my abilities were returning.

As a result of this awakening, I commenced working with a well known medium acting as her support while she cleared people and places of their upset spirits.

Speaking as one who has seen the real thing, there is a lot of BS associated with this endevour. It is necessary that this be done though, as those affected can be in quite dire straits.

The damage can be both physical as well as psychological. It is hard living under the threat of imminent attack when you cannot see the fist about to strike.

The primary lesson here is that NOBODY can change my experience but ME! Many try however and if they can convince me that they are capable, then I will experience the events of their desire.

This is the primary method of mischief of the low and not so dearly departed.

Whilst this was happening, I ran a meditation group which grew to over 170 people in a short time. At one time we changed venues 3 times in a month as the group was growing that fast. By choice, I then split the group into 5 smaller groups each with their own teacher. I am no stranger to group dynamics and teaching.

I left Canberra in 1997 and took a short contract in Hobart. A beautiful place, which I still call home.

The change of scene availed me the opportunity to avoid the New Age circuit and do some grounding and deep thinking. I noticed that the New Age beliefs are as much a religion as any other – and as much of a mental trap.

I spent the next 7 years in a form of retreat, concentrating more on the 3d world of making money. The result was that I became one of the better paid people in the contract project management arena earning twice in a day what the average earned in a week.

The catch here is that with the increasing income, came an increasing level of stress and a declining health. I had lost my earlier joy for life.

Throughout my life I have been connected with higher teachers. Some periods less than others. but always connected.

One morning, in the proverbial hour of the wolf, I realised just what I had lost and set to recover it. Every time it is different – my abilities at the moment are less than they were, but my knowledge level and intuition are way higher. I am happy with this mix as I can call on the abilities if I REALLY need to, so they are not really lost – more like put aside for the while.

There is a lesson here – it is always harder to recover what you have lost
than it was to develop it in the first place.
