A Spiritual Renaissance - Interview with Betty Kovacs
Betty Kovacs, PhD explains how the myths, the shamanic traditions and the ancient wisdom held a blueprint for our evolution and our connection to the divine.
She shows how these attempts to reconnect with our cosmic consciousness were brutally repressed throughout History, and why we are now in a special period of time, where a bridge between science and spirituality can help us finally reconnect to who we really are.
Frequency of Love in a Dying World by Betty J. Kovacs, Ph.D.
A meditation on our loss of the intelligence of the Heart, the Holy Grail of Love. With this loss, our world has become a wasteland. We are destroying ourselves, our children, and our world. How do we find the frequency of Love, the wisdom that can heal us? Just as with the Knights of old, this question is our call to take the labyrinthine journey deep within ourselves. For it is here that we can discover our own unique gifts of the Heart.
The gifts of the heart can heal this wasteland where toxins are destroying life; children are murdered in their schools; LGBTQ individuals are marginalized and murdered; genocide continues against Native Americans; and systemic injustice, cruelty and murder are still perpetrated against African Americans and other people of color.
Our decayed beliefs, ideas, and prejudices can only be healed from within. When we work on what has decayed, we activate an energy field whose laws support our transformation. In this energy field of love, we create a new consciousness that can change the world. We become Merchants of Light who transmit the vision of the Holy Grail.
The ancient Egyptian shamans and mystics were, in fact, Masters of Light. They knew how to take the journey into their own darkness and transform it into light. The Pharaoh was Egypt’s symbol of this inner journey that we must all take to confront the darkness and fuse within our own consciousness the archetypes of death and life. This profound transformation of consciousness allows the Pharaoh to desire and love the divine feminine who now awakens his entire body, heart, and mind to the frequency of love.
These great mystics knew that it was this consciousness that stabilized the spirit world in the physical world and allowed the heart frequency of the cosmos to flow through us and the world. This was the journey that renewed and sustained Egypt. (Jeremy Naydler, Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts: The Mystical Tradition of Ancient Egypt and Alison Roberts, My Heart My Mother: Death and Rebirth in Ancient Egypt.)
On the other hand, King Arthur reflected a land in which the King no longer knew how to take this journey into darkness and death. He no longer knew how to die or how to fuse the archetypes of death and life within his own consciousness. He had lost the intelligence of the heart and was no longer able to love and honor the sacred feminine. Camelot fell into a wasteland – and so have we. Now we are being called to take the sacred journey to discover the intelligence of the heart.

Were You Still Talking? #41 With Betty J. Kovacs Ph.D
Was religion hijacked? My very special guest on the podcast today is Betty Kovacs, Ph.D. Last week I talked politics, this week it’s religion and 2,500 years of repression by both Church and State.
More about Betty:
Betty J. Kovacs’ extensive study of the shaman-mystic spiritual tradition of prehistory reveals how this early knowledge of the blueprint for our evolution was distorted and covered up by Western religions. She shares her knowledge and passion through her books, speaking, teaching and media interviews in the United States and Europe. She speaks to national and global audiences through webinars, keynote presentations and media interviews.
More than 2,500 years of repression by both Church and State have thwarted our evolution, forced our science into a limited, materialistic understanding of life, and now threatens the survival of all life on our planet. We need to know this history. Twentieth-century scholars have unearthed this lost history in the nick of time. In spite of its repression, this is the fifth time this ancient knowledge has emerged in Western history. Only now are we able to see its origins, its continuity, and the depth of what it can mean for us today.
The ultimate fruit of the tree of life is the knowledge that we are all Universal Mind, immortal, divine, and creators. Without this knowledge of who we really are, we have fallen into depression, violence, fanaticism, fundamentalism, addiction to power, death and drugs that promise to transform our experience of a world without heart and soul. We are destroying ourselves and the planet.
We have forgotten that the heart connects us to a larger reality that nurtures the birth of a just and feeling world. Merchants of Light: The Consciousness That Is Changing the World returns to us our shaman-mystic-scientist heritage that carries the blueprint for heart consciousness. This blueprint is revealed in the heart wisdom of the mystic and in the new science of quantum physics. The return of this Consciousness is changing the world.

Within a three-year period, she experienced the deaths of her mother, her son, and her husband in separate automobile accidents. While she had studied shamanism before her son’s accident, she and her husband actually experienced their son’s consciousness after his death for an extended period of time. These experiences completely changed their lives. Her first book, The Miracle of Death: There Is Nothing But Life, is about these altered states of consciousness. After her retirement, she began an intensified period of research into our ancestors’ experience of a vaster consciousness, Cosmic/Christ Consciousness, which she relates in her new book, Merchants of Light: The Consciousness That Is Changing the World, winner of the Nautilus Silver Book Award and The Scientific & Medical Network 2019 Book Prize.
Here [in Merchants of Light] are the spiritual secrets that the priests of the patriarchy and their drive for power have tried to repress, but which we urgently need at this present moment of evolutionary crisis.
