When LIFE Gives You Lemons…

You know some folks like lemons, so for them I would assume receiving a sack of lemons lemonsbadquote.jpgwould be a ‘happy’ thing. Think of all those lemonade vendors at the fair.  Surely they’d like a big sack of lemons because FREE lemons would only increase their day’s profit.

So the ‘turn that sack of lemons into lemonade’ cliché is actually a good way to view the gift.

But for the rest of us, we might have to get a bit more creative and work on better appreciating them.

LIFE gives us similar “gifts” all the time—the ones that might seem a bit hard to comprehend their value. (Even if we had actually called those lemony experiences to us to grow our personal resilience and consciousness by working through them.)

I know that I’ve certainly had a few acidic “gifts” myself over the years that were quite a challenge at the time to endure.

However, in a shamanic context, those extremely challenging ‘gifts’ are called “initiations.” It means that Spirit has chosen you for whatever reason, to ‘test’ your inner resilience, to ‘test’ your physical stamina, and to ‘test’ your sheer determination to survive the ongoing shaman initiation by the strength of your WILL alone.

During one of the worst times of my life, to maintain my sanity, I read all sorts of educational material along with inspirational books that helped me to refocus my mind on where I wanted it to be—which was ‘done with that experience.’  I wanted to be in that future time AFTER  I had ‘run the Spirit-test gauntlet’ and had made it successfully to the other end of that particular life challenge.

Back then I even created Spirit-animal art portraits to show my appreciation for my Power-Animal’s help during that grueling life journey.  Today while sorting through some objects on my bookshelf, I ran across one little plaque that had helped me at the time to reframe the context of my awful experience. It was a little decoupaged quote from a Lynn Andrews’ book that I’ll simply share here with you:

“But if you live through the initiations you have become the ultimate alchemist. Your own soul has burned through the agonizing fires of transformation and you become the goddess on earth. 

You can heal the mind and heart of the suffering brothers and sisters because you have also suffered. croppedeaglegoldenskyfly.jpg

You can change the sand into gold…

Understand why you were born. Not to hurt, but to heal and to teach.”

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

 

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.

Every Single Person Makes a Difference in the World

nassimpicforquote78.jpg

“It’s up to you and me and the guy beside us…How willing are we, to make those steps, to take the risk, to transform our life, to stop doing things that are not in line with this higher knowledge, with this transition. Every single person has to make those choices, and if people make those choices every single person that makes that transition, is a huge impact on the whole morphogenetic field of the planet. So every single person counts.”

“Ultimate Manifestation”

What on earth is Ultimate Manifestation?

I’m alluding to a blurb in the book jacket of Paul Selig’s newest book soon to be released, called: Beyond the Known: Realization. seligbookcovrealization.jpg

Here’s the description:

“Expanding on and transcending his previous work, Realization, the first volume in the Beyond the Known trilogy, is composed of the pure, unedited words of the Guides as they share their wisdom and knowledge through Selig. It serves as a psychological-spiritual guide to take readers beyond the perceived limitations of accepted reality and open their minds to ultimate manifestation.

 

Maybe the erroneous words in my previous question were “What on earth…” because the book jacket interior mentions hypnotically ascending into what shamans would term “Upper World”—the higher dimension from earthly life where our energy bodies (spirits) go when the physical body dies.

Christians call it Heaven or the Kingdom.  Shamans simply call it Upper World.  I often upperworldshaman.jpgrefer to it as Spirit-world to avoid any religious associations.

So my next question would then be, if this blurb is referring to something called: the “Ultimate Manifestation,” does that mean that we are manifesting the Upper World dimension into this present earthly dimension, or are we somewhat “materializing/manifesting” some aspects of ourselves into Upper World?  Or is it a hybrid of both possibilities that is created when we actually shift our collective dimension into a somewhat higher-frequency plane than earth is, but not actually reaching the Upper World dimension?  Like a newer version of our reality, such as “Earth Reality 2.1.”  Maybe we are being upgraded?

I really don’t know.  Hard to say what it means especially since the book isn’t yet available to read—and I’m sure to some it’s hard to even imagine the possibilities of any of those options occurring.

Had I not visited Upper World myself a few times during my own shamanic journeys, I would have no idea to what he was referring.  But I have seen some aspects of Upper World—although my visits allowed into it were limited.

I’ve even guided hypnosis clients into that higher SPIRIT WORLD dimension where they met with their personal guides and discussed the “life lessons” that they had received prior to that particular past-life death that we had just explored from the vantage of a recliner in my hypnosis office on earth. etheralshamanicworld.jpg

One aspect of what I do in hypnosis is to guide a client into a Past-life Exploration or do a more in-depth Spirit-World Exploration.  From my various experiences (both personal and in helping others), I can say that when we all die, we go into Spirit-World (Upper World) where we assess the life just lived for lessons learned and for realizations made through living that previous earthly life.

We are instructed/assisted there (in Spirit World) by a master teacher or guide on better understanding why we just experienced what we did in that earth life; and we assess how those experiences best (or worst) affected us.  In most cases, we are then taken to a healing location in that Spirit World dimension where we are cleansed and purified and revitalized to cleanse our previous-life-lived, energy-body of traumas and emotional wounds (which is basically repairing any residual energy damage to our overall energy field) and to set the stage for what will happen next for us to explore/learn in subsequent incarnations into the earth plane classroom.

The explanation I’m providing on this subject matter may seem more simplified than it actually is in Spirit World; and some aspects spiritworldwebofspirit.jpgof that higher-frequency dimension are truly unrelatable to this earth dimension, so these descriptions often don’t translate well for our present comprehension levels, but… overall, I can readily say that I am personally aware that such a place as Upper World (or Spirit World) does exist, as are a few of my clients who also have experienced their own visits there.

And knowing that a place actually exists is half the battle to aspiring to reach it.

So when Selig says: “…It (the book) serves as a psychological-spiritual guide to take readers beyond the perceived limitations of accepted reality and open their minds to ultimate manifestation.”  …I’m guessing he’s referring to helping readers experience that nearly-incomprehensible, higher-frequency dimension for themselves so they can aspire to create it in their own minds and then make it their own reality.

If that is the case, when the book does come available just sit back and enjoy the journey as you read it.

 

 

The Quantum Field

“Based on my knowledge and experience, I believe there’s a self-organizing intelligence that is energy, and it is observing all the universes joequantum field quotr.jpg and galaxies into order. Sometimes people say to me that this idea seems a bit unscientific. I always answer with the same question: What happens after an explosion-order or disorder? Their answer is always that that disorder results. Then I ask: so why after the Big Bang, which was the biggest explosion ever, has so much order been created? Some intelligence must be organizing its energy and matter into form and unifying all the forces of nature to create such a masterpiece. The intelligence, the energy, is the quantum or unified field.”  Dr. Joe Dispenza

“Transformation of Consciousness”

Excerpt from the Worldview Dimension of Gaia Education’s online course in Design for Sustainability
(https://blog.usejournal.com/transformation-of-consciousness-6a911712da62?fbclid=IwAR0hcR0RHCpngi9uFt1o3sgWGsN_8o1W4HESxWTGKFStNtyIlFFI7UJW65I)

“The materialistic consciousness of our culture is the root cause of the global crisis.. Our whole civilization is unsustainable. And the reason that it is unsustainable is that our value system, the consciousness with which we approach the world, is an unsustainable mode of consciousness.” —Peter Russell

ionsconsciousnesstransformationmodel

“Both individuals and the western ‘financial success driven’ society as a whole seem to find themselves in a situation described by Joseph Campbell as “getting to the top of the ladder and finding that it stands against the wrong wall…” Our very nature is far more caring, loving, and empathic than we have been educated to believe.” —Daniel Christian Wahl

“Csikszentmihalyi believes that the next big evolutionary change in human consciousness may simultaneously acknowledge the self as separate from and fundamentally interconnected with the complexity from which it emerges. The individual, its culture, and the natural environment are simultaneously differentiated from each other and united into a larger complexity.”

“We are at the cusp, I believe, of an epic shift into a climax global economy and a fundamental repositioning of human life on the planet. The ‘Age of Reason’ is being eclipsed by the ‘Age of Empathy’. The most important question facing humanity is this: Can we reach global empathy in time to avoid the collapse of civilization and save the Earth?

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes … but in having new eyes” – Marcel Proust

Nassimseyeproustquote.jpg

Join Nassim Haramein and an international team of Resonance Science researchers on this voyage of discovery. The Resonance Science Foundation team invites you to explore and engage with us as a whole new phase of our growth and service in the world begins with a new website at a new domain:

resonancescience.org

“The name of the Foundation comes from our fundamental concept of resonance, a physics term in which energy (in the form of waves or vibrations) both reflects from and causes other objects to take on the same energy. For example, if you hit a large gong, other similarly resonant objects will also pick up that energy and start to ring. Similarly, if we resonate in our beliefs together, we will each share and grow that energy. And taking the concept even deeper, unified science shows that the concept of resonance is intertwined throughout our entire universe, and that these interconnections can be harnessed to uplift humanity, our planet and our universe.”
