What is Conscious Convergence?
Conscious Convergence describes a point of awareness.
In a broader context, the term refers to a period of time when intelligence unites with will to bring about Self realization. Read an article from SOM President Laurel Clark about how people across the United States are living Conscious Convergence NOW.
How long will this period of time last?
There is every indication that humanity is continually evolving. Conscious Convergence heralds an initiation point in evolution. It is to be seen as an arrival rather than a temporary condition. You might consider it as a State of Being reflecting the individual's responsiveness to the inner senses as well as the outer ones.
How does one arrive at this State of Being?
Through a disciplined daily practice of concentration, such as prayer, meditation, such as stilling the mind and inner listening, and visualization, such as intentional creation, one becomes increasingly conscious of the Real Self. The School of Metaphysics teaches these practices enabling the student to develop ever-deepening understanding of Mind and the Universal Laws that govern creation. It also provides the field of experience for understanding to develop and consciousness to mature.
What is the Mind?
"The Mind is the Vehicle to know the Self and the True Reality. Mental Discipline of the Mind is the Key to Mastering the Mind in order that it may serve as a Conscious Vehicle for the Self. A conscious choices made in the Present Moment affords infinite possibilties. A conscious thought imaged in the Present Moment creates the potential for infinite manifestations. The Present Moment affords the opportunity to know Self as infinite being," according to Dr. Daniel R. Condron, author of The Still Mind, Present Moment, Open Heart.
What is an example of these laws?
The Law of Attraction is one that has been brought into the light in recent times. In her book by the same name, Dr. Laurel Clark says,
"We each have the ability to imagine, and through using imagination and will power we can create the life of our dreams. Every time we create, we learn that we are a part of something much greater than ourselves. All the forces of the universe draw to us seemingly mystical and magical experiences. When we create with the purpose of learning how creation occurs we can begin to understand these universal forces called universal laws."

Where do I begin?
"Sometimes we seek miracles to give meaning to our lives when all the while the miracle is in us. The miracle of consciousness is born in awareness of need. This is the birth of spiritual thinking; the revealer of Truth, the sustainer of Commitment to Self.
Spiritual Thinking is the capacity to sense with more than your physical body, to remember with more than that body's brain, to desire from more than lack. Spiritual Thinking is the activation of the mind's power in all levels of consciousness.
Reasoning replaces rationalization. Intuition replaces psychism. Enlightenment replaces divination. ...
Wherever you are on your sacred journey, commitment to Self demands: That you relinquish the old, accepting the new, that you turn from yuor weaknesses and build with your strengths, that you resign your mediocrity, nurturing your excellence, that you surrender physical thinking to the freedom of Spiritual Thinking."
(from Master Living: 10 Essential Life Skills by Dr. Barbara Condron)

"We can only evolve from the point where we are at the present moment. It is a basic tenet of the law of attraction that providence only moves when you are committed and so far the commitment for transition to unity consciousness has not surfaced on a larger scale or even been proposed previously." Carl Johan Calleman, author of The Purposeful Universe
