More on the Current Erratic Energies (Paul Selig on BTO Show July 9th, 2019)

Season19_Paul.pngJust listened to Paul Selig’s audio from Tuesday’s “Beyond the Ordinary Show” (John Burgos) and amazingly, he hits exactly the same points that I mentioned in my last post on these erratic energies that are affecting us; and it also expands on my previous posting (May 10th, 2019) pertaining to Selig’s latest book on the Upper World frequency which he (as channel) refers to as “the Upper Room”.

Basically again I’m just sharing the info I run across and providing access to the various sources of higher-frequency connections that are shifting us collectively and/or personally higher as we allow it.

You can form your own opinions of the sources and materials provided.  I’m not hard-selling anything—just making it available. If something mentioned here resonates with you then it provides a starting point for your own further pursuit.

That being said, here is my take on this particular Paul Selig BTO talk:

  • How you serve is how you are most fully expressed as your True Self.
  • Our main problem as a collective consciousness is that we feel disconnected from our true Divinity, and we fail to recognize that same Divinity exists in ALL things.
  • As we live our lives in FEAR we stay in pure survival mode, fearfully separating ourselves from others and from the world around us.
  • What we are experiencing at present is the cleaning out of our old energies (memories) so we can shift higher in frequency and become our TRUE DIVINE SELF.
  • To release those stagnant and repressed energies, we must allow our old wounds to surface for re-examination from a more mature (less reactive) perspective so we then gain greater understanding of the learning opportunities each one provided to better understanding our own abilities, capabilities, and expanded awareness.
  • “Your experience will now be formed by your higher level of consciousness and likewise, you will project that higher consciousness (energies and perspective) into your world. You lift higher whatever you encounter.”
  • “Humanity is having a reckoning—and it’s a reckoning of the facing of oneself and one’s creations, and that everything that is known or created in fear must be re-known or recreated now in a higher way.”
  • Now is a time of great opportunity—the opportunity for change—BIG change. But we have to seize the opportunity to change or we will simply be left further behind because of our inclinations to default to previously set behavior patterns and to set ways of perceiving ourselves interacting with our world and with each other.
  • In essence we are re-birthing ourselves to a higher-frequency existence; and it is not pleasant to go through those labor pains of birthing ourselves anew.
  • We all are presently going through this unpleasant process that forces us to re-examine everything we once believed about ourselves—believed about who we were as loving human beings and about why we exist—even believed about how others were either important to us or not important to us.
  • The masquerade ball is now over, and we are being forced to DROP OUR MASKS; and when that happens we will simply be exposed for who we really are—standing there in all our nakedness—all our flaws—all our prejudices—all our imperfections—standing there not only in front of all others who might judge us—but mainly standing there in front of that reflective mirror to truly see ourselves for who we are pretending to be in our own judgments, and then to let it all go—let it go so that we can be our True Divine Selves without the ego attachment to superficial values and the need for social conformity. It’s not easy to stand naked in front of the mirror and really like what you see, but if all that you see in that mirror is Divine and ALL is simply another form of Divinity expressed in a more unique manner, then it is much easier to like it—and to love ourselves.
  • We are undergoing a process of personal destabilization to re-set our balance and comfort levels to a new higher frequency.turboceanwaves43
  • Do your best. Release your fear.
  • Release old wound energies. And allow this turbulent ocean of energy to wash over you, toss you about, and swirl you to wherever you next need to be.
  • The only thing we know for certain is that we won’t be the same being that we were prior to embarking on these churning seas.

I guess the only real solace I can personally offer is that you are not alone in feeling this inner turmoil—we all are going through this re-creation process in our own ways. Even Selig and Burgos both said that they were not having a ‘fun time’ during all this tumultuousness.  And I’m certainly not either. So again, if you are feeling destabilized (and Selig just said that he was feeling destabilized himself) know that you aren’t alone in this. It’s just something we all have to endure until the storm has passed. You simply have to ride it out.

My suggestion is that pen and paper may help to get your inner thoughts out for more thorough examination. You might try journaling to get better connected to what you are feeling and thinking day by day; or even to help release those unpleasant memories that might arise or to curb your too-active mind that won’t allow you some inner peace.

Put it on the page under your hand, and get it out of your head.  It helps.  Does for me.

 

What Do You Want In Life?

It’s one of those days when Ionestrangerock234.jpg simply let the Universe present me with whatever I feel needs to be mentioned at this moment.  I was originally just going to highlight an outstanding National Geographic documentary on Netflix called One Strange Rock.

(See the trailer here: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=one+strange+rock+netflix&view=detail&mid=B8CF815A849FCE482960B8CF815A849FCE482960&FORM=VIRE ).

It is narrated by Will Smith along with numerous astronauts whose perspectives on our beautiful, blue planet were drastically shifted once they were in space. Their insights are truly mind-blowing.

The cinematography is absolutely astounding in this series–you could watch it for that alone; and the astronaut’s explanations on the Earth’s interconnected ecosystems and biosphere may radically affect how you view the Earth as well.  Life is a question of balancecarefully controlled balance of all interacting ecosystems—from the long-traveling sands of the Sahara to the Amazon rain forest’s biodiversity to the living ocean’s diatoms to icy glaciers breaking off and falling back into the sea. Pretty amazing how this planet’s life sequence unfolds.

Then of course I open Facebook to today’s installation on philosophical thought from a few of my favorites and I had to mention their posts:

Decide on the emotions you’ll feel when you’ll begin to create that future. Teach your body emotionally what that future’s going to feel like. Don’t get up until you begin to feel those emotions. You have to decide what emotions no longer belong in your future. That means if you want to be wealthy, you can’t take lack. If you want to be healthy, you can’t take insecurity or fear. You got to begin to condition your body to a new mind.

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.

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.

The Four Winds Society

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. …”

When Is a Problem Really a Problem?

probdeinit453.jpgIn today’s world, the possible answer to that title question would be a “problem” for you is when you perceive the situation as a problem, otherwise the perplexing situation simply IS—it exists in front of you dependent on your personal interaction with it.  But that situation’s existence and your interaction with it may lie in some currently unknown context and you can’t presently make proper sense of it, so you may mistakenly perceive the immediate situation as A PROBLEM.

That is the danger of fragmented thinking. When we fail to consider the wholeness of the setting and situation’s context, and of ourselves interacting physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually within that environment, we limit ourselves to seeing only parts of the total scenario—fragments of the whole—and sometimes we see only the parts that we want to see or have trained ourselves to notice, while ignoring other pertinent information about the situation.

So perhaps our presently confusing life situation isn’t so much a genuine problem, as WE are labeling it a problem by not properly understanding the situation’s true context—we don’t understand our ROLE in this broader life drama.

challengeproblem587.jpg

Confused yet?  Aren’t we all—that’s our biggest conundrum of this shared life experience.  We can’t seem to grasp the overall CONTEXT of why we are here interacting with each other in this crazy, erratic game of LIFE.

While that simplified explanation of a perceived problem and the context that it may ultimately exist in might sound like nonsense, it is actually describing a baby-step toward a more expansive way of viewing the world and reconsidering everything existing within it.

Here’s a video sample of a David Bohm’s explanation on What is the nature of reality?  taken from a 1990 physics and spirituality conference in Amsterdam.  (Notice the Dalai Lama sitting beside him.) [**“David Bohm (1917-1992) an American theoretical bohmanddalailamaconfphysicist who contributed innovative and unorthodox ideas to quantum theory, philosophy of mind, and neuropsychology, …”]

David Bohm speaks about Wholeness and (the dangers of) Fragmentation (fragmented thinking):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mDKB7GcHNac&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR0g1ZwJ8VvppoHq2_CCE8vhLrTPVwKs3v9AU9Jv2Um6xJGZ3hTVPN0-0R0

 “I think the difficulty is this fragmentation..  All thought is broken up into bits. Like this nation, this country, this industry, this profession and so on… And they can’t meet. That comes about because thought has developed traditionally in a way such that it claims not to be affecting anything but just telling you the way things are. Therefore, people cannot see that they are creating a problem and then apparently trying to solve itWholeness is an attitude or approach to the whole of life. If we can have a coherent approach to reality then reality will respond coherently to us..”      ~David Bohm,  Amsterdam, 1990

bohm quote on thinkling

**“…(Bohm) is widely considered to be one of the most significant theoretical physicists of the 20th century. In physics, Bohm advanced the view that the old Cartesian model of reality was limited, in the light of developments in quantum physics. He developed in detail a mathematical and physical theory of implicate and explicate order to complement it. Bohm warned of the dangers of rampant reason and technology, advocating instead the need for genuine supportive dialogue which he claimed could broaden and unify conflicting and troublesome divisions in the social world. In this, his epistemology mirrored his ontological viewpoint. He believed that the working of the brain, at the cellular level, obeyed the mathematics of some quantum effects. Therefore he postulated that thought was distributed and non-localised in the way that quantum entities do not readily fit into our conventional model of space and time (Wikipedia).”

Memory Storage Via Akashic Records

I was watching an Alicia Power interview by Christy Warnick on Facebook, where Alicia was explaining the Akashic Records and why they are so significant. alicia342.jpg

Of course with my doing Past-Life and Spirit World Exploration hypnosis, I already had a basic idea of the Akashic Record concept.  But Alicia’s explanation was even more specific on this immense higher-memory storage system, and provided further explanation to what the Akashic Records really are—a huge electromagnetic database of stored memories tainted with emotional energy, housed in the Absolute Consciousness “cloud” of memory storage.

In a sense these “energy memories” are filed away in that Absolute Consciousness data-storage base with our personal Oversoul as the holding file for ALL of our individual oversoul.jpglives that we’ve lived during the eons of human existence; but in another more amazing sense, the Oversoul cross-references these “electromagnetic energy memories” by the similar, heightened emotional, electromagnetic charge of each experience.

For instance: I ask the client’s High Self to show us hidden reasons for a hypnosis client’s intense fear of heights or to show us reasons for a client’s overwhelming sense of grief when there is no reason for it to exist in the present life.  These “energy-based, extreme-emotion memories” can be sampled from one life to the next, simply by asking the High Self to show us first one life, then another life, then yet another life where this same situation or emotional extreme occurred, and then help us to understand why it is still so significant in the client’s present life so we can hopefully heal it and release the trapped energies from so many lifetimes ago.

What is so amazing to me is that if during a Past-Life hypnosis session I simply ask the client’s High Self for yet another example of this particular emotion-packed situation to explore and possibly heal, we can jump right to the next prominent example in some alexgrayoversoul2.jpgother completely different life/gender/social setting to examine those previous-life experiences.  (It blows my mind how easily this occurs–it’s like closing this particular LIFE-file and just opening a different one.  The client takes a moment or so to re-orient to where they are and to what they are experiencing as this different Avatar, and then immediately starts describing the new setting and new cast of characters and how they all interrelate.)

So in a broader sense from my hypnosis practice experiences, I do understand how each electromagnetic ‘memory package’ stored in the Akashic Records can signify a specific learning experience of interacting consciousness both for each individual soul’s lifetime of experiences, as well as for the greater expansion of the collective consciousness.

But Alicia explains it more clearly here than I can—see the interview with Christy Warnick here: https://www.facebook.com/theakashicacademy/videos/1096241884097456/

alicia784.jpg   christy warnick3.jpg

Also and most important to me, during this interview Alicia described the manner in which this experiential memory creation all occurs—where ALL life experiences are programmed and processed for everyone.  I’ve heard her talk before about this particular higher-plane, actual “staging scenario” for our earthly lives, and I have begun to believe that her description here is the genuine gameoflifechairTRUTH of our experience in the Earthplane dimension: You are sitting in this large game chair playing the “LIFE Interactive Game” on the screen in front of you, while your Spirit Guides stand beside you offering advice for key moves if you are willing to accept the advice. Each time you play the game you are experiencing ‘ONE life lived on this Earth plane’ at a chosen time period and during a particular level of group consciousness which could be partially determined by the life-experience location.

Each LIFE game that you choose can have a particular focus or a particular theme to explore along with the accompanying characters that best help you explore that theme.

You can choose your gender Avatar, some basic characteristics, and the general situation (family and setting) that your Avatar-self is birthed into; then once you are old enough in the game and self-aware of your actions and repercussions for those actions, the game is yours to command within the game’s rules and restrictions. When that occurs, then the game choices are all yours to make.  But you have to ‘live’ with the ramification of those self-made choices while you are still playing that LIFE game until you expire (die) from that game and leave that particular life. You even have to live with those choices AFTER you die to that life. This is where KARMA comes in.

gameoflife boardThese “LIFE-game” memories are stored not as flat, dry data on a static page of paper, but are instead stored as emotionally-tainted “experiences” that you can relive as though it were happening live to you while you are re-experiencing it.

Just like a Virtual Reality game playing in front of your goggled eyes with the control apparatus in your now-sweating hands. You feel it as REALyou relive it as REAL—you cannot tell the difference between what is REAL and what is not—just like a dream experience. You are there and whatever you are experiencing is as REAL as it gets, with accompanying pain and emotional distress simply an added extra for learning emphasis.

There should be no doubt about it—the Game of LIFE is serious stuff.   And because it is conducted in such a “feel the results of your actions” consequences, a lot of the emotional high and low points in the game of LIFE create powerful electromagnetic energy packages.

When these powerful electromagnetic energy packages are stored in your Oversoul memory base, the exceptionally difficult memories that are filled with fear or anger, shame or disgust, hatred and/or intense griefthese most power-packed emotional experiences create unacceptable repercussions in your Oversoul’s membrane Florenceshinquotekarma.jpglayers of electromagnetic storage, so that in each subsequent game of LIFE that you play, you must clear those nastier energy residues during the next playing (or try to do so).

Clearing those nasty electromagnetic residues from our energy fields are what we call ‘working out our Karma.’  That ‘what you give is what you get’ is a powerful lesson in learning to give only love and learning to play nice with others, which is likely the point of the entire LIFE game.

 

So…. in my opinion, I think the interview listed above is well worth your time, and it might help to open your mind a bit for a peek behind the Wizard’s curtain of what is really happening here in this Virtual Reality game of LIFE.

 

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.
