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. …”

What’s In a Name?

This post by Alberto Villoldo sums up my personalshakespearwhatisname654.jpg philosophy about ‘names’ in general or in assigning ‘the doings of our life’ descriptions to ourselves for the benefit of others who are busy trying to classify us in their own minds in some way, i.e.:  I’m a teacher….I’m a writer…I’m a helpful/not-so-helpful person…besides evidently being impatient and rude to friends, etc.  (It’s a wonder that I have any friends. 🙂 )

Yesterday sitting around the table at a group gathering, a friend was doing a lengthy explanation to the rest of us about a sudden personal revelation that she had had. It pertained to how she now ‘defined’ herself in some way—meaning, she said it defined WHO she is now, as opposed to WHO she was in the past (or at least how she saw herself from then to now).

Not being a (name) socially polite or (name) patient person myself, through all the elaborate bobbing and weaving in her lengthy story, I rudely cut in and asked, “But WHO are you?”   I mean wasn’t that the entire point of the whoamiquote234.jpgstory? Who are you now, that you weren’t two weeks ago?  Wasn’t that the most important thing for her to know that she had suddenly discovered on her life journey?

She looked a bit miffed at (name) old-rude-me, and then smilingly said that if I’d just let her finish, she would have told us who she was.  With me now properly but politely chastised, she started the story again, winding here and there, here and there, and guess what?  She never did tell us WHO she now was; instead she simply told us what she planned to do or to pursue in the near future.

Eh, ….that’s not the same thing is it? Who you are and what you do? Not to me anyway.

So this morning Alberto puts out this post about using names and identifying yourself in certain ways that tend to become self-fulfilling prophecies.  And not surprisingly, he makes my point below far better than I just did above, so I listed it here in its entirety.

 Alberto Villoldo  (on Facebook)

I am.

These are two of the most powerful words in our language. Whatever words we place after these two words shapes our reality for the entire day, and sometimes for the rest of our lives.

The first time you experience your “I am” is when you learn your name.

For a long time, I introduced myself as “I am Alberto,” instead of saying “My name is Alberto.” I believed I was my name, which was also my grandfather’s name; it was the extension of the story of my family. What I knew about our family history revealed that we were pirates and highwaymen, with an occasional slave owner and merchant on our family tree─not much to look up to, really.

When you say, “I am <your name here>,” you rouse the spells of your ancestors. Some of these spells are about your health and how you will live and how you will die. When you go to your doctor, she asks what your parents died from. Breast cancer, heart disease, dementia─she tells you that your destiny has been cast, that it is written in your family genetics. When you go to the therapist, she shows you that the stories that run in your family leap from one generation to the next, until you become just like the mother or father you vowed you would never become.

If you live long enough, you will get to ask the question Who am I?

It is a terrible question, because it launches you on a journey into places and experiences that are unknown. You realize that you are not your name, that you are not your family, that you are not your job or any of your myriad roles in your life. That you hate Brussels sprouts and love the opera is not, I repeat not, who you are. Until you begin to transform the dream of security, you do not have the foggiest idea of who you really are.

But ask the question; this is a step in the right direction.

When my father was in his seventies he called early one morning and said to me, “Alberto, I have been living someone else’s life. I have tried to be a good husband, a good provider, a good person. But I have no idea whose life I have been living.” And for the next few years after he asked himself that question, he lived his own life until he died. I like to think that my father died at the age of five, but it was a well-lived five years.

After you spend a long time discovering that you can’t be defined by your name or by your nationality or by your gender ─ that all of these are real but not intrinsically true ─ you begin to understand that what you thought was your life and your identity was only a daydream.

You let go of the need to place something after “I am ____,” because you now recognize it is a complete statement (without filling in the blank).”

How to Create Order from Disorder—Feeling the ELEPHANT

This morning I saw a Facebook post of a video clip of Dr. Joe and his LondonReal interview on how to change yourself and the world for the better. It’s called joeunlockmindpiuc.jpg“UNLOCKING THE HUMAN MIND: How to Rewrite Your Story “  ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Krrd3AwwLqU )  It’s worth a listen.  (Just click thru the ads to get to it.)

Also this morning Alberto Villoldo villaldobloghealingfisrt45.jpgput out his blog post of a personal healing story that was his primary initiatory healing experience in Peruvian shamanism, called:  “TASTING PEACE: MY FIRST EXPERIENCE WITH ENERGY HEALING”

(https://thefourwinds.com/blog/shamanism/tasting-peace-first-experience-energy-healing/?fbclid=IwAR1SiuvaWscOtP0EiY0k12ejFmlmLZU1dXqaWOUn1pgqQip-EEmOOOZiHVo )

While both are quite different in content, they both allude to the ability to change our situations and ourselves by shifting our focus from the material world’s limitations and set patterns of belief into Source’s quantum energy field that both initially creates and then sustains us, because everything that we experience in this life is all about ENERGY and how we exist in our purest state—which is simply as ENERGY itself.

Both viewing options offer interesting perspectives, and both shed light on a subject that for some might be a little hard to fathom, yet it is the basis for life as ‘we know it,’ and as we have ‘yet to know it’.

Whether alive or dead to this physical world, we are still energy units and will always remain as energy units. That energy part of us continues on into infinity because energy never ceases to exist, it simply transforms into other uses for it.

quantumenergyfield.jpg

During this life experience our conscious awareness expands and transforms as we ‘grow it’; and upon our passing from the earth that grown consciousness then uploads to the Greater Source Consciousness.  We are all continually expanding the Greater Source Consciousness—which some would say is simply Source (GOD) exploring itself.

From my personal perspective, I’ve spent the last twenty years as an energy worker of some sort, whether in REIKI or Shamanism or even in hypnosis (because to better understand the subconscious mind is to delve into the ocean of energies where it exists in a myriad of forms).

With each discipline learned, I gained a different perspective on energy healing that allowed me to, as the old parable stated, “describe the ELEPHANT by a committee of 6543blindmenandelephantblind-men”.  If you are unfamiliar with that parable, here is a brief summary: To one blind-person standing at the rear of the beast, the elephant was like a rope because he held the tail. To another blind-person at the front, the elephant was like a coiling snake because he held the moving trunk. To yet another it was a huge boulder (the side), or a large tree trunk (the leg).

In effect, to each blind-person the elephant was something limited in scope and understanding—each part relatable only to that in which they were touch-familiar.  Because they were all blind, no one person by themselves could see the total picture of ELEPHANT because each one was limited to what part they could actually feel before them.

Source energy—the quantum field as it is often called, has presented itself to me over the years like I was one of those blind-people describing that enormous, unfathomable elephant.  REIKI described it one way. Shamanism described it another way, and hypnosis yet a different way.  All healing modalities were effective in how they explored the subject, but none had the total picture of how all those differing techniques actually functioned within the quantum field itself and transformed the unharmonious situations with a client.

Because I’m an ‘I want to know the BIG PICTURE’ type of person, I think this ‘blind-persons’ committee’ is still out on how Greater Source Energy (GOD) or the Quantum Energy Field actually works.

But I did conclude that after twenty years in energy work I now better understand the amazing energy healing powers of REIKI by learning a different perspective on energy jamesorschmanquoteenergy43.jpgwork from shamanic healing. Just as I better understand now how shamanic healing can be so effective in some instances after learning the theories and techniques of hypnosis.  In fact to me, it seemed easier and more client-empowered to do things like soul-retrieval and past-life healing using hypnosis, rather than shamanism where I went from being the “healer” in those shamanic-client situations, to simply creating the healing environment for the client to heal themselves using hypnosis.

So to ‘still-inquiring’ me with various forms of energy healing under my belt, the Quantum Energy Field is the same ELEPHANT that you’re feeling around on no matter where you stand, it’s just from one location I’m holding the ELEPHANT’S tail, and the other location I’m holding the trunk.

But no matter what I’m doing in energy work, I still want to see the BIGGER PICTURE—I want to see THE ENTIRE ELEPHANT itself and understand WHY it is standing there so prominently in front of me.  And most importantly, I want to know how best I can utilize ITS presence, because that subject pertains to my inquiries into the nature of reality and the nature of consciousness.  What the heck IS that ELEPHANT? What makes that ELEPHANT what it is?

But back to the video/post shown above, both Dr. Joe and Alberto here are talking about using the quantum field for healing—in effect they are both feeling around on that ELEPHANT—focused in different ways, using different techniques for doing so.

It’s just a very large ELEPHANT.

Perceiving the World as REAL

Checking my email this morning, Alberto Villoldo’s “Weekly Wisdom” newsletter came through with a quote that caught my eye because I’d been just reading and thinking truenatureofreality.jpgabout it: “…to interact with the vast information fields of the biosphere, you must enter a state of clear perception. Your mind must be at peace in order to perceive the true nature of the world…”

The other info source that I’d been slowly working my way through was Paul Selig’s third book in the Mastery Trilogy, The Book of Freedom.  Selig’s entire focus of this channeled trilogy has been to clarify our erroneous perception of the world and of ourselves in creating this presently chaotic existence—helping us to realize who we really are, what we really are, and how we really serve the greater collective consciousness, free of self-imposed limitations.

seligbk3freedomThe FREEDOM that the book declares for us is the freedom from fear—stating that FEAR creates our present reality—how we perceive the world around us, with us interacting in/creating that world, is the flawed nature of the reality that we mistakenly perceive as REAL.

So when I saw the Four Winds email this morning with the “…Your mind must be at peace in order to perceive the true nature of the world…” I knew I had to at least mention it here along with additional supporting explanations from Alberto Villoldo.

***

“…The Light Body

Shamans believe that the world seems real only because we perceive it as such and that everything we perceive is a reflection of an internal map that we ourselves, along with our culture, have constructed about the nature of reality. These maps are stored in what shamans know as the light body, and what scientists call neural networks in our brain. Shamans know that if they wish lightbodyrainbow34.jpgto change the outer world, they must begin by changing the inner maps, by healing the imprints of disease and trauma from the light body. They believe that the light body is the blueprint that creates health or disease.

When we heal our light body, we can access knowledge that is available to all human beings. In doing so, we could interface with the biosphere in ways we’ve never imagined, to upgrade the quality of natural information available to us, and install it in the hardware that’s been in our brains all along. …

… The Neuroscience of Enlightenment

Shamans believe that, to interact with the vast information fields of the biosphere, you must enter a state of clear perception. Your mind must be at peace in order to perceive the true nature of the world and not merely the reflection of your own below-the-surface drama created by your destructive emotions.

…  Power Up Your Brain: The Neuroscience of Enlightenment by David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, and Alberto Villoldo, PhD (Hay House, 2011).”

 

2018 Jan 30 —THE NEUROSCIENCE OF ENLIGHTENMENT

https://thefourwinds.com/blog/shamanism/the-neuroscience-of-enlightenment/

BLOG-30-01-18-3.jpg “…The Bible, Koran, Buddhist and Hindu scriptures all teach that we can be delivered into a paradisiacal state, whether after death, at the end of time, following many reincarnations, or as a result of personal effort and merit. This state of liberation is called grace or heaven by Christian religions, paradise by Muslims, and awakening or enlightenment by Eastern traditions (using various terms such as samadhi, mukti, bodhi, satori, and nirvana).

But what if grace, samadhi, and enlightenment are really based in biological science? What if they are states of higher order and complexity created by programmable circuits in the brain? Can neuroscience deliver on the promises presented by religion: freedom from suffering, violence, scarcity, and disease? Can neuroscience deliver us into a life where health, peace, and abundance reign? …

…shamans’ claim that they accessed information from the natural world―from the biosphere itself―by tapping into the invisible bioeco523wisdom of a field that permeates all of life. This web of life, which they refer to as the Divine Mother, is a living energy system that supports and informs all creatures. It is, in essence, a matrix of energy that connects all living entities.

This concept is making its way back into the minds of the science community. Scientists are also beginning to reconsider the notion of space as one huge void. A growing number of physicists postulate that space is not empty but full of energy―cosmic radiation from the Big Bang, pulsating electromagnetic fields, and gravity. Could this energy be a vast storehouse of information as well?

The pendulum has begun to swing back to the ancient belief in an interconnected universe and the importance of the divine feminine. Contemporary scientists, including the Noble Prize-winner Erwin Schrodinger, the neuroscientist Humberto Maturana, and the physicist Francisco Varela, have suggested the interrelatedness of all particles in the universe. …”  Alberto Villoldo, PhD

 

Space-Time and Personal Awakening

Despite how it might initially appear, much of what I write about is interrelated.  The subject matter mentioned here is tightly interwoven in ways we are only beginning to comprehend.  All those really deep questions: What is consciousness, sentience, awareness?  What is the nature of reality?

spacetimevillaldo.jpg

Why are we designed the way that we are—born as blank slates to write anew with each interaction and exploration?

Why do we not retain previous-life memories or at least be provided with blueprint guidelines to each new experience?  Wouldn’t we make fewer mistakes if we knew the game plan before we started accruing more mistakes?

Clearly as a fellow human being, I’m still searching for all those question’s answers, as are many folks in this explosive and expanding period of human history.

But seriously, whoever is making these decisions for us to be here, Why are we doing this? Aren’t there better ways of expanding consciousness than to pit each of us against our own ignorance and against each other in this gladiator’s open arena called LIFE?

Why do we keep being reborn into one after another situation where we have to relearn about ourselves/our abilities and how we relate to others?

And as usual, I have far too many questions and too few ‘ABSOLUTE TRUTH’ answers.

But despite that, here are a few short quotes from Alberto’s latest blog post on Space-Time that I found interesting because it’s basically what I do in Past-Life Exploration hypnosis.  The entire article is shown on THE Four Winds website hosting the blog.

Alberto Villoldo explores the Andean concept of Space/Time in this fascinating new blog post:
https://thefourwinds.com/blog/shamanism/pacha-space-time/

2019 Jun 11 —Pacha (Space-Time)

albertospacetimeblog.jpg

Posted in Shamanism by Dr. Alberto Villoldo

For the Laika, time is intertwined with space, very much like the concept in physics known as space-time. The shamans call it pacha. It is the basis of the word Pachamama, or Mother Earth, our home in time and space. Since space and time are deeply connected in Andean cosmology, it is not out of the question to imagine that one could traverse time just as one can travel through the landscape. …”

“…For the Indio, the river is a good metaphor for many things, including time. They speak about mysterious currents beneath the surface that can take you back to your birth and beyond, before the moment of your conception and to earlier lifetimes, and to the beginning of time itself. The currents of the river of time do not flow from the past toward the future only. And you do not have to fight the current to swim upstream like the salmon do. You simply must find the right undercurrent that can take you as far back into the past as you wish. …”

“ …He continued: ‘Your personal power is the product of your communion with the Ti (like the Chinese ‘CHI’ or the Japanese ‘KI’). If the Ti is strong within you, and you are unencumbered by your past, you cannot be seduced by the daydream of a different future. Then the past opens up to you.’

I learned with Don Manuel that one can enter the river of time to discover treasures hidden by ancient masters inside the currents and eddies of the past and in the turbulent whitewaters of the future. You could journey to explore the currents of tomorrow to find opportunities for yourself and your village. Once you did so, you could stop searching and get on with the job of creating it with the power of Ti, the Primordial Light.  …”

“ …The Q’ero Nation that Don Manuel belonged to is in some of the most barren and inhospitable land in the Andes. Like the Hopi in North America, the Q’ero chose desolate peaks from which they could observe the machinations of the world and wait for the moment when they would deliver their prophecy of peace. The Laika want to dream the world into being with the power of the Primordial Light—to create beauty and peace where there is conflict and strife.

They are luminous warriors dedicated to creating heaven on earth. They know that scouting the currents in the river of time in order to find beauty is their task in the sacred dream. …”

The Sacred Dream

There are times when simply sharing the inspiring words of others is important.  And yes, I have my favorites—Alberto Villoldo being one of them. I believe his blog is worth reading for its substance and higher truth. (You can access it from the link below; then simply click “BLOG” in the menu to read all of his previous posts.)

“2019 May 21 —WHAT IS THE SACRED DREAM?

https://thefourwinds.com/blog/shamanism/what-is-the-sacred-dream/  by Dr. Alberto Villoldo

BLOG-21-05-19.jpg

 

The shamans of the Andes know and serve a sacred dream, one that guides planets across the heavens and our human destiny here on Earth. The sacred dream is a map to the future, but has no paths you can follow and no trails other than the ones you blaze yourself. It is ephemeral, changing every instant, surprising you at every turn, as in a dream.

Men and women who serve and protect this sacred dream are known as luminous warriors. They have no enemies in this world or the next. Their resources are vast.

The sacred dream reveals the implicate order of the universe. It is evident in the seasons, in how the bees pollinate the flowers, and in how all living beings are connected and related to each other. With this wisdom, the ancient shamans of Peru bred and crossbred their corn to produce more than 400 varieties of maize; they gazed at the night sky and forecast eclipses decades into the future. Meaning and purpose arose naturally in their hearts because they understood they were part of a plan much greater than they.

When we become aware of the sacred dream, we recognize that the universe is not made of dead rocks hurling through space, of lifeless energy, or of the dark matter of science. Instead, we understand that the cosmos is pulsing and conscious, longing to create beauty, birthing blue-green planets, spiral galaxies, and more than 20,000 species of butterfly on our earth.

Each one of us is given a fragment of the sacred dream to hold and express in our own way. When we forget that we carry an essential and necessary part of the sacred dream, our lives begin to spiral into disarray, our personal dreams become nightmares, and our lives descend into chaos.

Many people have replaced the sacred dream with a dream of fame and fortune, power, and Facebook likes. Meanwhile we are facing global crises—from climate change to species extinction to war, famine, and disease—all of which are calling us to dream a new dream for ourselves and the world.

The sacred dream is calling us, inviting us to awaken from the slumber we are living in and dream with our eyes open so that all the possibilities of the future are available to us.

A sacred dream encourages you to explore the mysteries of life and of love, to glimpse a reality beyond death and discover a timeless truth for yourself. It demands that you act boldly and courageously, and not collude with the consensual—that which everyone agrees on and no one questions—even though it is a popular story that traps us in daydreams that become nightmares.

How do you know when you have found a sacred dream? Because it is much larger than you, and it feels impossible to accomplish all that you hope to achieve. A sacred dream launches you on a mission, as it did with Martin Luther King Jr., and Mahatma Gandhi. “But I am not Gandhi,” you might say. True, you do not have to set a goal to lead a billion people to freedom. But what if your destiny is to do something far greater than you have imagined until this moment?

When you find your sacred dream, the creative power of the universe—known by the shamans as Ti (Primordial Light)—becomes available to you to create beauty in the world, and to heal yourself and others. Like the shamans of the Andes—the Laika—you become a luminous warrior. You live fearlessly, know the answer to “Who am I?” and know the ways beyond death into infinity. You dare to speak the inconvenient truths, uphold universal values that honor all life, and perform daily acts of courage.

The practices of the luminous warrior are essential in a time when dreaming happens only when we sleep, where cowardice is honorable, where hindsight seems wise, and where spirituality is spineless. They help us craft a destiny infused with courage, and driven by vision, to bring light and peace to our world, and to find our part in the greater sacred dream of humanity.

In future blogs, we’ll discuss the practices of the luminous warrior—and the importance of awakening from the misguided dreams of security, permanence, and love that is unconditional.

Dr. Alberto Villoldo”

 

The Satellite Connections

Related, but long story:  Long, long ago, I visited my friend in the IT department of the agency where we both worked. She was madly typing into a satellite, data-entry station that was direct-connected into an enormous mainframe computer in an adjacent, sealed, climate-controlled room. mainframebiggy.jpg

From her satellite station she could access all the information the mainframe contained, and even connect to other similarly-connected satellite stations both within the building and throughout the school systems that were likewise connected into the mainframe computer at our agency.

It was like being an active link to a vast neurological network throughout the district’s school systems with the core ‘brain’ centered at our agency. For the schools and our agency, it was a cost-effective, mutually shared system for providing payrolls and all education-related data among a large group of serious users.

apple-macintosh-1984-history.jpgAt that same time in the agency, I was the Graphic Artist and I had my own Mac computer independent of that huge mainframe. My early Mac certainly had its limitations, but it also had its own system and didn’t require an interconnected network like the data-entry satellite stations did.  Back then it was my first understanding of the difference in computer abilities, data storage parameters, and the true difference between a satellite connection and a stand-alone computing system.

Finally, the point:  While we tend to think of ourselves as that stand-alone Mac, I think we are more likely a satellite station to the GOD-mainframe called “absolute consciousness.” Our limited receivers can access the parameters of general consciousness that apply to humans and to their present state of collective consciousness. And codeitrightfirstwhile our individual satellite stations are self-contained in functioning ability, they are limited by their personal receiver’s frequency translators and internal processing units. (I wrote about frequency translators a few posts ago, and a processing unit would be how fast you can make sense of the data that you receive.)

So this morning I was reading a blog entry from Alberto V. called “The Invisible World: Ever Present and Accessible”  (https://thefourwinds.com/blog/shamanism/invisible-world-ever-present-accessible/?fbclid=IwAR2MPOqBWrcxidvssnMY_FFD0ujFWk-Ba005rGnOqhBHN_1_UDt0uiBLAng ) and suddenly recognized my early education on satellite systems connected into mainframes.

“…The sages say the reason we are born into a body in the physical world is to evolve and grow, to acquire maturity and wisdom. To use a metaphor from physics, when we’re embodied, we’re like a photon in a particle state; while in the invisible world, we’re like a photon in a field state. The particle state is our “local” nature—flesh and blood, sitting on a couch reading. The field state is our “nonlocal” nature, in which we extend to the farthest reaches of the universe and are at one with all things. When we die and leave this body behind, we return to our nonlocal nature, to our field state, to invisible Oneness….Our field state, the one we inhabit in between births, encompasses all of creation. The field is insubstantial—we don’t have enough substance to contain our awareness…..

The invisible world exists alongside the visible one, ever present and accessible. We can bring its wisdom into our world at any time to provide healing and balance. The way we do this is by activating the circuitry in the brain that allows us to experience our interconnectedness to all things and all beings in the cosmos. These higher-order neural networks, like all neural networks, are made up of brain cells connected to each other, of neurons that fire together and wire together….

Today the interface between our senses and our machines is moving us ever closer to being able to access all the knowledge in the world instantaneously. But this is not the kind of omniscient awareness I’m referring to. The awareness I speak of is the mind’s ability, in the field state, to experience the cosmos firsthand, across the farthest reaches of space and beyond time….”

Just a thought here: This blog post by Alberto may not be the answer to all our questions, but it may be the correct question framing to consider for acquiring more accurate answers to our deepest questions.
