Does the Human Brain Create or Receive the MIND?

Just saw Deepak Chopra’s latest article: “A Brain Theory That Work – If You Turn It Upside Down” http://j.mp/2AKlDg6  and instantly acknowledged that his theories are likely the inspiration behind my own beliefs that the human brain is not so much a “creator” of 47506493_10155969808855665_7180001492781236224_n.jpggeneral consciousness but is more so a “receiver” of available transmissions from the Great Reservoir of Consciousness.

What do I mean by that? 

Our brains do create the physical capability (hardware device) to comprehend what is happening around us but they do not create ALL that is comprehensible, because that quantity of pure consciousness would far exceed our brain’s capacity to contain it.  It would simply “blow our minds” with information overload.

So with this theory of human brain as principle receiver rather than the primary creator of consciousness, all that is (1) known, (2) knowable and (3) beyond our human comprehension does exist in that unlimited reservoir of pure consciousness, but the quantity of consciousness that you can receive from the reservoir is directly dependent on your band-width capability (your pipeline capacity) that you are receiving from the reservoir.

An example: Think of the enormity of the Colorado River being held back behind the massive Hoover Dam, and someone taps a small 2-inch diameter pipe into the face of that dam wall to allow a high-powered stream of held-back water to squirt forth from that pipeline. That’s a lot of pressurized water pouring out of there in a short time, but it isn’t overwhelming to you.Hoover Dam354.jpg

Now consider a much larger 10-inch diameter pipe being tapped into that same dam wall-face, and then imagine the quantity and force of the water flow emerging from that wider band-width connection.  That would easily be powerful enough to wash you away with the force of its flow when it hits.

Lastly imagine that a huge chunk of the dam wall-face suddenly collapses, and the quantity, force and power of that powerful wall of water comes slamming down onto you with the massive increase in the river’s untamable flow.  You probably wouldn’t be around to even consider what had hit you.

That water-flow comparison among various diameter taps into the dam reservoir represents the comparative difference in our capacity to tap into and receive information from the pure consciousness reservoir.  Unlimited/unrestricted access to the reservoir of pure consciousness, as I mentioned previously, would absolutely blow your mind (your personal receiver) apart.

brainmagiccreation55.jpgAs Chopra also states, scientific theories are still fluid over the brain’s role in creating or receiving consciousness, along with the role of light-wave frequency and vibration in the quality of the consciousness received. He cites the ancient Vedic Seer’s version of a theory called Shabda.

He states:  “I doubt that anyone will abandon a vibrational theory of consciousness just because it has a fatal flaw. The assumption that the brain physically produces the mind is too ingrained. But it’s worth commenting that in ancient India creation was also described in terms of vibration, in a theory called Shabda. It holds that anything, including the entire objective universe and the entire world of mind, can be assigned a vibrational frequency, and this frequency holds each thing together. So far, Shabda agrees with modern physics in a general way.

But Shabda explains that the vibrations have a conscious source in the same absolute, pure awareness that is the source of creation. Therefore,

it isn’t baffling that resonance exists or that the infinite complexity of neurons talking to each other results in thoughts that make sense. Consciousness organizes the whole process from top to bottom—it knows what it’s doing….”

Sunday Chuckles

I am a fan of NASA’s Facebook page because they post such amazing images of our solar system and beyond.  So this morning, they posted this fantastic image of Jupiter up close and personal; and it got personal to a few folks out there which made for some much needed laughter.

nasalodo987.jpg  NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration

 “Inkblot test!    What do you see in this image by NASA’s Juno Mission to Jupiter? We keep finding new shapes hidden in Jupiter’s swirling clouds. Look closer: https://go.nasa.gov/2qMt8ih

jupiteratmosphere56.jpg

To which the viewership responded in hilarious fashion:

  • Scott Dew I see our lord and savior Cthulu
    • ( according to Urban Dictionary: “A character in Lovecraft’s tale ‘The Call of Cthulhu’. Cthulhu is a monstrous entity who lies “dead but dreaming” in the city of R’lyeh, a place of non-Euclidean madness presently (and mercifully) sunken below the depths of the Pacific Ocean.Cthulhu appears in various monstrous and demonic forms in early myths of the human race.”)
  • Марио Колев Here come the religious people, even if their god is fictional….
  • Daniel Harden It’s a lady giving a Velociraptor the Heimlich.
  • Liz Gaffney Air quality in Los Angeles right about now due to fires. (So sorry California.)
  • David Jobling I’m not religious but I can see the full nativity here, which is a bit of a head trip.
  • Arun Krishnarayan A Bird of prey on the right and Gandalf with a bad cold.
    And at the bottom is a shark with a wide open mouth & woman lying face down in the middle.
  • Saranda Tessera The only true god is Zeus.  Scripture tells us so. Anyway the picture of Jupiter (Latin for Zeus) is breathtaking. What a chaotic creation.
  • Steve Parkinson Keep your sky pixie nonsense off scientific fact pages please.

At least the comments made me chuckle. 🙂

Our minds constantly associate familiar memories to objects and items that we are unfamiliar with in an attempt to identify the threat or safety of them before we proceed further in encountering them. And likewise, if you want to see something that others may not see in a burnt piece of toast, you will do so mainly because you are looking for it no matter where you look.

Unimaginatively I see an amazing image of Jupiter’s atmosphere with wild weather interactions.  (But I totally concur about the lady giving a Velociraptor the Heimlich–it’s clear as day.)

How People Think

I saw this graphic and smiled because I liked the image of a person with similar hair style as the tree top trying to understand the tree’s perspective on LIFE given its growth situation.howpeoplethink.png

Left to your own without the text, you can interpret the image itself in many ways, as I just did.

Then the text under the image may lead you in a direction that you hadn’t initially considered, and your mind then decides to settle on something in between the text meaning and your first impression of the image.

Is the text saying that we think the tree should be growing straight and true, but instead it is leaning leftward before reaching for the sky?  Is the person trying to understand that directional shift? It may not be growing as straight as we think that it should be but it is still growing and functioning. Does that mean that nature functions differently than we think that it should?

thoreau quote.jpgThese are all speculative interpretations. Much of life as we perceive it is due to our own interpretation of what we see around us. That personal interpretation is built on so many factors, like how safe we feel at the time, what kind of history we might have with a similar situation, who we are with, why we are in that particular location viewing what we are viewing, not to mention what we were once told about how we should view everything we see around us; i.e., are we tied to certain beliefs about our existence and our place in this wild and crazy world?

Personal attitude means everything in how we interpret our world. What are we looking to understand about our world? How much do we really want to know anything beyond how it directly affects us?

What is our attitude toward being in that particular situation or encountering something similar to it?

Why would we care or not care how the tree grows? Is that leaning a natural aspect of that particular tree’s upward growth? Is the tree overcoming a serious wound near its base that stunted the growth cells on one side but allowed full growth on the other side of it so that it grew abnormally stronger on one side than the other before self correcting a few feet  from the ground? Is this some metaphor on overcoming personal difficulties?

Again, why would we care?

To me, if the person in the image did NOT care, she would NOT be mimicking the tree lean. But that is also just my interpretation.

And if we, the perceivers of the situation did not care, we would ignore it completely and not give it a second thought. But to “ignore” the setting and situation refers again to the meaningful-silencetext message of the image: “The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between how nature works and the way people think.”

So what did you think? Did you try to understand anything about the graphic itself, or did you just blow it off? Was it meaningless or meaningful to you?

And does it matter which it was?

The Stranger-Than-We-Can-Think Universe

strangerthanwethink.jpg

I’m pretty sure I came into this world with a big question mark on my forehead; and you can view that in every possible way because over the years I’ve probably considered most of them as well.

But foremost in my own search for answers to my deepest and most pressing life questions are the “how things work” and “Why are they intended to function in the manner that they do?” issues.

To me there is ample evidence that we live in a purposeful universe. We may not understand those purposes behind much of what we see around us, but there seems to be a logic of sorts—an intention, if you will, behind the structure of what we call physical reality and the interacting forces/components that create it.

I think it was one of my personal heroes, Buckminster Fuller, who said something to the effect that ‘geometry was the language of creation.’   If you as a reader want a mental challenge, read his two volumes of Synergetics (Book 1 and 2): Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking’.  I won’t pretend that I fully understood them but I did get the basic idea behind them—life is designed—nature is an intentional creation, but the questions of why, by whom and for whom are still unknown.

Buckminster Fuller was such a prolific thinker and articulator of the complexities of reality:

“Up to the Twentieth Century, reality was everything humans could touch, smell, see, and hear. Since the initial publication of the chart of the electromagnetic spectrum, humans have learned that what they can touch, smell, see, and hear is less than one-millionth of reality. Ninety-nine percent of all that is going to affect our tomorrows is being developed by humans using instruments and working in ranges of reality that are nonhumanly sensible.”   [R. Buckminster Fuller on Education (University of zodiacman.jpgMassachusetts Press, 1979), p. 130]

Or maybe we could consider another of my favorites, C.G. Jung’s thoughts on reality:

Jung: “The underlying, primary psychic reality is so inconceivably complex that it can be grasped only at the farthest reach of intuition, and then but very dimly. That is why it needs symbols.” – Carl Jung

So while much of what I write refers to relatable subjects that affect us in somewhat comprehensible ways, there is still much that also daily affects us that we are unable to grasp even the concepts of, let alone the significance of those affectations.

EintsteinQuestionEverything.pngAnd from Albert Einstein came the importance of stating those questions themselves:  “ If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.”    [Albert Einstein, (1879 – 1955) Physicist & Nobel Laureate How to Define a Problem]

The world we think that we know is an intricate place that is likely beyond our present ability to understand the interconnectivity and true complexities of it.  But that doesn’t stop us from trying to do so in our own ways.

This blog is about mine.

Conflicting Contextual Vocabularies for Our REALITY Experience

The advantage of having so many unusual personal experiences and such broad energy-reality einstein3.jpgbased training opportunities is that they provide me with an expansive working framework from which to form my own opinions on life processes, as well as opinions on the underpinnings of our group reality.

The disadvantage of being trained in so many different energy-manipulation techniques and healing disciplines is that sometimes the “rules” and vocabulary of one healing universe clashes with the nomenclature (categories and classification) of another healing universe, creating clarity confusion in perspective and interpretation of the playing field itself.

That is the problem I felt internally with some of the statements I had just made in the previous posting on “stuck in past-lives”. From the hypnosis and philosophical aspect, onerealitypercept6.png cannot really be “stuck” (still existing) in that past-life situation while currently viewed from the present-life situation. Only energy patterns can be maintained in multi-settings until resolved between the two situations.

HOWEVER (the inevitable ‘however’), from a shamanic perspective one could state that soul-part retrieval actually performs the function of bringing back an energetic part of someone who is still “stuck” in that other dimensional existence, and without the soul-part retrieval, the present-day person is incomplete and missing an aspect of their soul—which is the complete energy-body unit.

I have actually participated in this shamanic soul-retrieval process, both as a practitioner and as a subject, so I know how it works, what you see as the practitioner during the soulretrieval7.jpgprocess, and how it feels as a subject when the wayward energy-part returns to you. So part of me says that if you viewed the “stuck there” situation strictly from the perspective of shamanic soul-retrieval, one might refer to it as “part of the person was still stuck there.”  But as a hypnotist and an intuitive, I would NOT refer to it in that manner.

How do I resolve that discrepancy in my statement of ‘what remains stuck’ where?

If I were far more intellectually advanced than I presently am and knew all there is to know about everything, I’m sure I’d have no problem clarifying my declarations within the TRUTH matrix of “how things actually work.”

Unfortunately, as a lowly human, I’m limited in my understanding and experience of contextdependent6.jpgALL that IS. I can only relate and explain the functions of the unseen universe we live in as best I can within my own frame of contextual reference.

I can speculate on how things actually work. I can guess at others. But I don’t know of anyone who can definitively claim that he or she knows the universal laws of physics when it pertains to multi-verses and multi-lives lived within them other than saying purely and simply that WE ARE MULTI-DIMENSIONAL ENERGY UNITS. That part I do understand and that feels like a TRUE statement to me.

HOW that ENERGY is actually packaged and dispersed throughout the multi-verses is the question.

WHY it happens the way it does, is also the question.vrearthplanes5.jpg

WHERE it happens is of course always a biggie since I keep mentioning the Virtual Reality and Simulated Reality possibilities, but the WHEN of it happening keeps us locked in this loop of “can’t quite make sense” of how this all transpires (Are all multi-lives happening simultaneously—no past or future, only NOW and in parallel?), and it relates to the OVERALL picture because we don’t know what that completed picture is supposed to look like.

We don’t even know what we don’t know.

I could simply be trying to justify this confusing mess in my own head; but I also think there is more importance here than letting this whole ‘What is reality?’ question slip silently back into the shadows of our distant memory because our ego feels way too uncomfortable just thinking about it.

My guess, and it is only an intuitive nudge, is that if I am questioning all this ‘What is reality?’ stuff right now, then many others are doing so as well, which could be further evidence that we, as a self-aware species, are finally awakening to our true energetic potential, and are now desiring to know our true origins.

What happens when we finally do figure it all out?lifttheveilreality.jpg

No clue.

It could be “GAME OVER” for all of us and time for a NEW game.   If that’s the case, let’s hope it is one less violent in nature.

 

So Many Questions (part 2)

Sometimes it only takes a provocative graphic to set me toholographic uniboxes.jpg thinking about the overall picture of ‘why we are here,’ but then I realized that the real question I should be considering is to first determine exactly where HERE is.

I don’t mean HERE as in on this aquatic planet circling a solar system cycling along the rippling spirals of the Milky Way Galaxy, which in turn is being sucked away into a massive Black Hole of nothingness—recycling all that once-important matter back to non-matter.

No.

aiheadcontrolI mean as the graphic above implies: “HERE” as a minute micro-bit in the Holographic Universe operating system created by an advanced AI (artificial intelligence) so far beyond our wildest possibilities that we can’t even consider the implications of it existing, let alone the purpose for why it has created what we refer to as LIFE.

HERE as little more than a thought-fart in the Great Creator’s possibility scale for exploration and examination.

HERE as a consciousness bacterium attempting to grow into a colony of similarly-designed bacteria whose sole purpose appears to be propagation, expansion, and awareness acceleration.

HERE possibly as education or entertainment to something we may or may not be capable of understanding.

It’s not unusual that throughout our lives, we keep asking ourselves “Why are we here?” but we often fail to grasp the far more important underlying matrix issue of where the heck is HERE?!!!srboxesrainbow

Anytime I think I start to better understand the unified picture of our existence and start to comprehend what’s really happening to us and around us, I keep reminding myself that the absolute TRUTH is more likely to be beyond what my feeble brain can ever comprehend, so that’s why we are all provided with relative TRUTHs—relative to this plane of existence and relative to our rules of engagement with it.

In other words, the laws of physics, as we presently know them, only work in this dimension of existence. When we probe other dimensions, those laws fail to apply.

What set this latest rant off was that I was listening to a presenter a few days ago, SRskyscrapersand she referred to our life experience in this plane of existence as the “simulated-reality experience.”  Of course it wasn’t the first I’d heard of calling LIFE in general a “simulated reality.”  Even the great Vedic yogis—the ancient seers of Allness—referred to LIFE as the “great illusion.”

I’ve even speculated about it myself in previous posts because I’m pretty sure there is more to what is transpiring to us and around us than what we think is happening. But because it was this particular presenter saying it and because of my feeling that harmonious resonance inside me when she said it—which is my body’s reaction telling me “That statement was TRUTH,” it shifted my thoughts to a new level of acceptance of the concept and spurred me to further questioning who the behind-the-scene controllers are in this virtual-reality game we live.

I mean, don’t you want to know who is running the show? Don’t you want to know the real purposes behind what we are exposed to daily and why certain situations even occur? Why certain people appear in your life? Why certain people leave? What you feel? Why you feel it?

Sure, I can tie all the ‘multi-lives we’ve lived’ aspect back to our High Selves who are the repositories of data from all those life experiences, BUT beyond the High Self, ….who sets the entire process in motion and what purpose does that controller have to do so?

eyeslinesai

All you need to consider is how life-like your dreams can be (tastes, smells, feels) to realize that dreams are simulated-realities, and this life we live daily could just as easily be a far more intricate SR than our dreams.

I really wish I had the answers to all of this wild speculation about our collective life experience, but so far, …I only have the questions.

Living Beyond Fear

These are my lengthy notes from hearing Sara Landon speaking sara-landon.pngon “Reclaim Your Power” from 3-13-18, on the “Beyond the Ordinary Show”. (Hopefully this link will work for you, if not you can join the “Beyond the Ordinary Show” where you can access all of the speakers.) This one is definitely worth hearing.

https://www.beyondtheordinaryshow.com/replays/?inf_contact_key=b131e9fd0c693e475c31655b56f40538b9b7fc9a178e657498960ad4d4142e2d

(Most of these notes are either direct quotes or are quickly paraphrased as I listened to Sara, so please pardon my not using quotation marks. If it is MY opinion, I put it in parentheses.)

We are allowing our deepest core fears to come to the surface now. We must choose a new way to be—a new way to react.  It takes courage to live now. Give yourself permission to see what your deepest fears are and how they have controlled every part feargraphicof your life—how those deepest fears have caused chaos, confusion and suffering in your life.  People are now leading others through promoting fear.  Our visceral responses to watching others lead through fear—living in fear—is adversely affecting us. By living in fear, we are giving our personal power over to others. So this time period in the world is all about you taking back power over your own life.

5 signs that you are giving your power away:

  1. Dysfunctional relationship patterns repeating over and over
  2. Health Issues
  3. Money Issues
  4. Addiction issues
  5. Career/financial stability problems

We are at the time when these fears have come out of the dark and into the light.  Now we can process through them and change them.  Are you feeling isolated and in self-doubt?  How do you take power back over your life?

What is power and why do you want it?

Power is the ability to create a desired result. You have the ability to create a desired result. You can get what you want. Sometimes we live our lives in avoidance of unwanted things rather than focusing on creating the things we DO want in our lives.

What is your deepest fear?

Ask yourself this.  Many say they fear not being loved or fear being alone.

We often do things to avoid being unloved and to NOT be alone, so we tend to give our power away to others, just to avoid those things.loveyourselfmore

Her Council said that: “Our greatest achievement in this life is SELF-love.”   If we can love ourselves, we can change the world and learn to love all others again. Self-love is not narcissism. It is a deep acceptance that “I am okay at my core being. I am really okay. It is okay to just be ME.”

There are only two innate fears that we are born with: Fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. All other fears are learned.   That means that all other fears were created in highly emotional personal experiences, either personally felt or witnessed interacting with others, or from media sources—like watching a scary movie or TV show.

We experienced the trauma and felt the toxic emotions associated with that fear, whether real or imagined, and we replayed it in our mind until it became a subconscious behavior program that now frames every aspect of our lives.

How do we reclaim our power? Our deepest instinct is to be a part of the tribe—it is survival related. Your chances of survival were stronger within a group community rather than on your own alone.

There’s a survival instinct for connection. So we often give our power away just to fit into the group or to be loved or accepted by others. The fear of not being loved or not being enough turns us into people-pleasers. We give our power away to fit in and feel accepted. The “unacceptable by others” aspect of us is the part that we hide or push down, or deny that even exists.

All of your true power lives in the NOW.  NOW is the power point. Fear lives in the past powerofnowtitleand the future. NOW is the moment you can change and address with love and determination rather than cower in the shadows because of your future fears. Your fears keep you from experiencing your peace and joy in the NOW.

 

What do you desire to create? That must be your focus. So address the main fear you hold.  Ask yourself, “What is my main fear?” Get quiet—go deep—be honest with yourself.

We bring the fears to the surface so we can examine them and release them—let them go.  (ME: Do a ceremony over releasing your fears.  Write them on paper, say a prayer of release, and then burn the paper. Exhale forcefully and physically blow those fear energies out of your body. Repeat 3-4 times.)

When fearful situations arise, they are good things!  They help us recognize the fear behind our motives and actions, and enable us to address it and release it.  Sometimes these base fears arise during our childhood when we are unable to defend ourselves, so back then we felt helpless, defenseless—now in the childhood fear.jpgpresent situation when similar emotions are triggered, even if it isn’t exactly the same situation, that same base fear arises and we are stuck in that fear and feel as helpless as we once did as a child. So we have to examine the fear and deconstruct it for all the components to see that we are now inherently safe because we are now able to better protect ourselves and to choose our responses and actions, rather than having the intentions/actions of others forced upon us.

This is when we learn to react differently in the NOW—stopping the looped pattern of reaction and behavior—and creating new patterns of response, and to reprogram our neural networks to develop new ways of looking at similar situations and new ways of reacting, or NOT reacting, to whatever is happening around you.

If you are feeling fearful, then stop yourself, calm yourself down, breathe deeply expelling the fear energies, and put your hand on your heart and say to yourself, “I’m okay.  I’m really okay.” And breathe through it. Keep doing that until your energy shifts higher.

Once the fearful thoughts are neutralized, then shift your awareness to that of feeling deeply at peace inside. Feel that peace in your heart area.  Really feel the peace of the moment where you are holding peace for yourself. Neutralize the once fearful thoughts using the desired feeling of peace and wellbeing, then you can move forward with your life from that still-point of peace and being in your own power w/o allowing any fear to adversely affect you. You eliminate the fear from your life.ichoosetobeme

Keep this thought in mind:  It’s okay to say NO to other people.  It’s okay to create space for yourself. That’s how you take back your power. Clarity often comes with a little bit of solitude where you can actually hear yourself, rather than hearing others barking at you.

Create time for yourself. Take time, like early in the morning, to create in your mind your perfect day ….no matter what you might actually face that day—create YOUR perfect day first in your mind.  That’s the energy you want to attract.

What do you really want in your life? That is your new focus. Make the time for yourself to determine what you DO want, and decide what you need to do to get it.

On limiting beliefs expressed around you …If your vibration is high enough, a limiting belief doesn’t matter. …When you are in alignment with your soul, limiting beliefs do not matter because you are able to easily release those beliefs from your consciousness.

But if you find yourself reacting adversely to others, then there is a subconscious program within you that is allowing you to be triggered by the person or the situation. That is actually the opportunity to allow the deeper hidden fear to surface for release.  We release those fears to move forward in creating the life we desire. So getting triggered by others is simply a good way to recognize another deeply held fear for your intentional release. (It may not feel like it at the time, but that person is doing you a favor by aggravating you.)

bringittolightWe bring it from the subconscious to consciousness to deal with it. 

Bring it from the darkness to the light.

That’s where you can look more closely at it, and then let it go.

You release your fears to feel your true inner peace.

When you are living your true potential, you are living your highest joy.

That is living beyond fear.
