The Brain as Receiver

“There is a fundamental field of information that is the source of our consciousness. Consciousness is not an epiphenomenon of your brain; it’s actually something that your brain is tuned into like a radio is tuned to a set of information.” – Nassim Haramein

“…The brain acts as a filter of the greater consciousness; we filter parts of the total information input available to us. …Our nervous system has to filter the information into digestible pieces for us to make sense of our universe. … The experience of non-local awareness is infinity—the ALL—total consciousness—experiencing the whole Universe at one moment. …Simultaneously, Great Sages who experience this non-local awareness, can be functioning at the local awareness level interacting in their filtered way with the people around them very effectively. …”

The following is excerpted from The Intelligence of the Cosmos by Ervin Laszlo, published by Inner Traditions.

“…On the basis of a growing series of observations and experiments, a new consensus is emerging. It is that “my” consciousness is not just my consciousness, meaning the consciousness produced by my brain, any more than a program transmitted over the air would be a program produced by my TV set. Just like a program broadcast over the air continues to exist when my TV set is turned off, my consciousness continues to exist when my brain is turned off.whatisreaklitylaslobk.jpg

Consciousness is a real element in the real world. The brain and body do not produce it; they display it. And it does not cease when life in the body does. Consciousness is a reflection, a projection, a manifestation of the intelligence that “in-forms” the world. …”  Ervin Laslo

Overcoming the Fear of Death

When I saw this Alberto Villoldo blog-entry email ocfeardeath34.jpgon overcoming the fear of death, it triggered some memories for me of my own client situations where I became less the “curer” of the serious illness before me and became more the gentle “transition” coach for those clients—the one who helps them more peacefully transition from this life experience to the Spirit World they would soon re-enter.

As he mentions in the blog post, there were times in the two decades of my energy healing practice (REIKI, Shamanic, Hypnosis) when I was called in as a “last resort” with some new client to see if I could perform a miraculous healing and reverse their likely terminal situation.

Despite their desperate desire for reversing their dire situation, I never made miraculous-healing claims to them.  I simply acknowledged that no matter what reason initially brought that person to me, he or she was there before me for a specific need that maybe I could fill, even though it might not be for the same reason that they thought it would be.  No matter the outcome, I would do whatever I could do to help them with their current situation, and that we would face the illness together until they no longer needed or wanted me to help.

I can honestly say that I always did my very best for them—for ALL of them.  After our REIKI sessions, many, if not all, were lightened of negative/heavy energies and severe mental strain that were dragging their attitudes ever downward because REIKI has this amazing ability to simply lift their energy fields to higher frequencies, and to help them hold that wonderful sense of being at peace and feeling a greater sense of well-being. It also eased the pain that they were experiencing and often countered the extremely nasty effects of chemo or radiation.

While I worked on them, I played the most beautiful, ethereal music that I had in my collection and told them to simply relax into the music as we would soon be rising together to the highest level of healing and angelic assistance.  I even made free CD copies for them of that same music to play whenever they needed to bask in that wonderful higher ambiance—to help get them through the days until the next time we could be together to ride the higher energies again.

After only a treatment or two, no matter what process was going on with their body, jumpintospacefear54.jpgthey realized that a deep sense of peace still existed within them. And I lovingly stood by those who requested my continued presence, providing pure, higher frequency energy for them during our REIKI sessions.  While they still breathed life on earth, they could feel the eternal love and the most beautiful higher light that they knew awaited them in the next venue—and in knowing the genuine feel of deep inner peace, they did heal what could be healed within themselves and throughout their relationships while they still had the time on earth left to do so.

That is what Alberto refers to here in this article. Curing and healing are two different things—and sometimes facing our death with a calm grace and feeling deeply at peace inside is a far deeper soul healing than an illness cure can provide.

“2019 Oct 22 —ENDINGS, TRANSITIONS, AND BEGINNINGS: OVERCOMING FEAR OF DEATH  —  Alberto Villoldo, PhD

 https://thefourwinds.com/blog/shamanism/endings-transitions-beginnings-overcoming-fear-death/  

albertoblogondeath2019.jpg“Fear of death—whether death of the body, a way of thinking, a relationship, a situation, or a dream—must be experienced fully and consciously, and then overcome for new, healthy growth to take place. We master our fear of death when we understand that our nature is transtemporal (outside of time) and undying, continuing for all eternity. …

… At just 12 years old, Annie was the youngest cancer patient I had ever worked with. Her parents had brought her to see me in the hope that One Spirit Medicine would reverse her brain cancer. They had tried every conceivable medical intervention to no avail and were looking to me for the cure they had failed to find anywhere else. Annie had lost all her hair from chemotherapy and looked like a young, smiling Buddha as she sat in a big leather chair in my office.

I explained to Annie’s parents the difference between healing and curing. While curing is the elimination of symptoms, healing works at a much deeper level, treating the causes of the imbalance that lead to disease. And while a cure is the ideal outcome of a medical intervention, healing is the product of a journey in which all aspects of your life are transformed—even if you end up dying. You carry your healed self into your next life.

…I asked Annie’s parents to sit outside in the waiting area so I could be alone with her. After a few moments of small talk, she told me bluntly, “I’m not afraid.” She went on to say that angels came to her every night in her dreams—and even during the day at times. But her parents were deathly afraid for her. “I can’t tell them about the angels,” Annie said. But she thought I would understand. And I did. I sensed that the veils between the worlds were parting for Annie and that her spirit was preparing for the great journey home. But her parents were understandably determined to do everything possible to help Annie live, and this meant trying to get rid of her cancer by taking her to a string of specialists and finally, as a last resort, to me.

I’ve been a practicing shaman long enough to understand that death is part of life. And I have seen that some of my most successful healings consisted of helping my clients die peacefully and consciously. So I performed an Illumination on Annie, to help bring balance to her energy field and thus to her body. The Illumination is the core healing practice of shamanic energy medicine, in which the luminous energy field is cleared of the imprints of disease to help mobilize the body’s own healing systems. …”

When Things Go Wrong

Yes, we all have them—those times in our life when the normal doings of daily living go suddenly awry: the lawnmower blows a gasket mid yard, the water softener decides to whenthingsgowrongquote67.jpgregurgitate all over the basement floor, a beloved tree blows over in the wind, you are late for work and start to get in the car then notice you have a flat tire, …you get the picture.  It feels like the world is suddenly conspiring against you—and your bank account. 

You could get paranoid about it and start looking over your shoulder like someone or something has it in for you, or you can shrug it off as just some of life’s challenges that suddenly aligned together—all during the same strange week.

Well it does happen that way occasionally, but the other possibility is that there is something you may need to pay more attention to that you’ve been previously ignoring.  What might that be?

Where have you been focusing your energy? That would be the first thing I’d ask myself and I did ask myself that very thing since I’ve just had a week like that.  I’m still trying to make some sense of it.

Personal challenges for us are breaks in status quo—they are often wake-up calls to our consciousness to stay alert and pay more attention to what is transpiring around us because we might be missing something important happening to us or to our current situation.  And what have I determined?

For one thing, these collective energies at present are truly awful. I spend much of the day refocusing myself to be more simply observant and less reactive to people, situations and particularly to the news.  And it doesn’t surprise me that older appliances and machines are revolting now from years of excessive use because stuff doesn’t last forever. But when the overall energies are this chaotically bad—and lower frequency—you can usually expect more things to go wrong around you because conditions are so ripe for them to occur.

My advice for others, as well as for myself: Try not to take it personally—instead just take it in stride as examples of ‘stuff that happens,’ and move through the difficulties one by one until the ‘gone wrongs’ have been rectified.  Don’t fuss, don’t fret, just deal with them one by one until those problems no longer exist.

And know that you are not alone if you’re feeling the tenseness of the collective or the potential for explosive emotions in public settings.  It is simply a part of the energies of this moment in time.

Another suggestion: When you are in social settings, be prepared to be more patient and be more of a listener than a reactive respondent.  Hold your own energies as high as possible for you, and know that ‘THIS TOO SHALL PASS’ though not nearly fast enough for most of us.

Sometimes all you can say to yourself is, “Hang in there. You’ll get through it.”

And then really believe that it’s true.

Reality Is A Reflection of Beliefs

Upon seeing this, I loved the image first, but the subject matter “What is reality?” naturally caught my attention.  One of the key thoughts in this article by Anatasia Netri is this one: Reality is nothing more than a way of looking at things. Instead of focusing on creating circumstances which don’t change your reality, focus on shifting your perceptions, and watch your reality change.”

“Why Reality Is A Reflection Of Your Beliefs – By Anastasia Netri

https://blog.sivanaspirit.com/sp-gn-what-is-reality-for-you/?fbclid=IwAR2VQ2mhB5wgWfYpOEkEzJA9ZZbT_rzUsGSFO_Vi9ypCSBXRag1n2VgmBlk

There are two people sitting on each end of a bench. Both people are hungry. At the exact same moment, a person walks up to each of them and hands them an apple.

This is the reality:

One person says “Wow, I was hungry and an apple appeared! Ah, the bounty of the universe. Geez, life really has my back. Thank you!”

The other person says, “All I get is this freakin’ apple? What happens in 10 minutes when I’m hungry again? I’m sick of being hungry. Life sucks.”

Reality isn’t your circumstances. Reality is how life feels to you. Circumstances don’t change that.

Often we hear things like, “Change your thoughts, change your life” or “Change from the inside out.” All these things are true.

We’ve confused reality with circumstances. However, reality is caused by our deep core beliefs about life. If we feel constantly that there’s never enough, and that’s way down in the subconscious, then no circumstance will ever make a dent in that. You can have money, food in the fridge, even some good relationships, but what you’ll feel most of the time is either that there’s still not enough, you’ll constantly worry about losing it, or you’ll even begin to sabotage these things without even realizing it to actually create circumstances that match your belief.

When you believe not-enoughness, what you want is to feel that enoughness and the peace that comes with it. So, you unknowingly look to create that from the outside in but it never satiates that desire for peace, no matter what you do. Reality changes when those limiting core beliefs are identified and examined because anything that’s not true will fall apart under examination.

Reality is a reflection of your beliefs.

Does your reality match what you say you believe?

If you want to change your reality, look at the current one. How does life feel to you? What tends to be your first reaction or response?

Are you trying to create outer circumstances that you think will change your reality?

For instance, If you feel unlovable, does someone else loving you change that on a deep level? If you feel unworthy, does hitting a goal or an accomplishment change that? Or do you feel like you’re just overcompensating? Worried? Stressed?

Begin with the truth. Begin right now, by taking a look at the current reality. Then, ask yourself what this current reality is showing you what you believe. To release false beliefs, they need to be identified.

There’s a wonderful quote by Carl Jung that says:

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”

You’ll not only call it fate, but you’ll call it a reality.

A Course in Miracles defines a miracle as a shift in perception, so imagine this for a moment: imagine how different life would feel if you knew like you knew, like you KNEW that life was working out for you. It wasn’t an affirmation or something you needed to remind yourself of, it was just something you knew, like how you know gravity is real. You don’t have to remind yourself that you aren’t going to fly off into space, you just know it. You can relax about it.

When the core beliefs change, perceptions change, and then, you will live in a reality that feels much more peaceful.

Reality is nothing more than a way of looking at things. Instead of focusing on creating circumstances which don’t change your reality, focus on shifting your perceptions, and watch your reality change. “

 

Yet Another Deepak Interview

Since he’s on my Facebook list, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that these interview excerpts keep appearing in front of me.  At first I assumed it might be similar to the others, but only a few seconds into hearing it he mentions my favorite subjects:  ‘What is the nature of reality?’  ‘What is the nature of perception?’   ‘What is consciousness?’ which captured my attention immediately, so here goes with yet discussionswdeepakinterview.jpganother personal transcription of his short interview:

https://www.facebook.com/DeepakChopra/videos/530070384462290/

 

Unknown-to-me interviewer: “Deepak, what is Metahuman?”

Deepak:  “Metahuman is waking up to what is reality.  If I asked ‘What is reality?’ What is everyday reality? It is THIS (gesturing around him, lists a few things and people). ….. On the one hand this is true. On the other hand it is not true at all, because what we call everyday reality is a human interpretation of perceptual experiences.  So who am I?  I AM this being. This person.  And who is the other? (Pointing around) That, that, that…is the other.  This is a learned perception—it is a human perception too and an interpretation of perception.   Before we can call an object ‘THAT’ or ‘THAT’ (chair, crystal, vase, etc.) it is an experience.

This… (he lifts a red phone from the table) is color, form, and shape.  Color is an attribute of the physical world but there is NO color in the physical world.  Color is electromagnetic radiation ….  And if you trace that perceptual activity back to its Source, you will end up with Awareness or Consciousness (which are ‘attributes’ of Source).

When you take (all sensations—sight, hearing, taste, smell) back to their roots, to its Source, you end up with Consciousness knowing itself as THIS (the phone in his hand).  …. So the only thing Conscious does is know itself through its self-excitations.  We take a bundle of these excitations (sensings) and make them concrete as the objects, including our own bodies.

 Metahuman is waking up from this delusion, which is basically a dreamscape in which that which we call your body-mind (the interviewer) and that which we call this body-mind (himself)…and that which we call the universe, etc., …so metahuman is waking up from that dreamscape to where the dream is conceived, constructed, governed and comes into me.

For simplicity we can say I AM (Source), before we can say I am me.  I am Deepak.”

 

The World Is Our Mind’s Reflection

Just listened to a short excerpt of Hota Kotb hodadeepaktoday.jpgon Today Show doing an interview with Deepak Chopra pertaining to his new book: METAHUMAN, and thought I’d share a few quotes that caught my ear.

( https://www.facebook.com/today/videos/796183174171239/ )

Deepak:  “The best advice I can give…is don’t take yourself seriously.  You’re here today and gone tomorrow.”

“If you are taking yourself seriously you will be offended by others for the rest of your life.”

“The whole purpose of our existence is to find our own joy, to experience and maximize the experience of love, and to then find some meaning and purpose to our existence, and to be healthy.  And that is all.”

“Everyone is doing the best that they can from their present state of awareness.  Everybody is doing the best that they can from their own (behavioral) conditioning, which goes back to their childhood—what they heard from their parents.”

“Anytime you look at the world, you are actually looking at a reflection of yourself.  So when people criticize you, they are actually reflecting what they think of themselves.”

(She asks him: ‘In this moment where are you?’)

Deepak:  “I am at peace…I am totally at peace.  It’s easy.”

She responds with, ‘You’re right though—that’s all there is. What are we sweating?’

“Yes, take it easy. (Don’t automatically react to negativity or criticism around you)….We become biological robots constantly being triggered by people and circumstances, into predictable outcomes.  That’s a terrible way to live. You’re at the mercy of every stranger on the street.   They say something nice; you are flattered for the rest of your life.  They say something nasty; and you’re offended for the rest of your life.  What a way to live.”

To which she repeats: ‘What a way to live.  You’re right.’
