The World Is Our Mind’s Reflection

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

The “AGE OF THE FOOL”

Heyoka234.jpg

During my studies of Andean Shamanism and Native American cultures, I ran across the legend of the HEYOKA—the Fool—the Clown—the Contrarian, that I’ll briefly share here.

The Heyoka of a tribe was the person who often acted opposite to tribe rules and to socially acceptable norms; and he especially enjoyed performing the opposite of whatever might be expected from him, because he stood out better that way—he received far more attention from others, even if it was undignified comments at best.

Here’s a Wikipedia description:

“Social role

The Heyókȟa is thought of as being backwards-forwards, upside-down, or contrary in nature. This manifests by their doing things backwards or heyobackwwardhorse.jpgunconventionally—riding a horse backwards, wearing clothes inside-out, or speaking in a backwards language. For example, if food is scarce, a heyókȟa may sit around and complain about how full he is; during a baking hot heat wave, a heyókȟa might shiver with cold and put on gloves and cover himself with a thick blanket. …

Principally, the heyókȟa functions both as a mirror and a teacher, using extreme behaviors to mirror others, and forcing them to examine their own doubts, fears, hatreds, and weaknesses. Heyókȟa have the power to heal emotional pain; such power comes from the experience of shame—they sing of shameful events in their lives, beg for food, and live as clowns. They provoke laughter in distressing situations of despair, and provoke fear and chaos when people feel complacent and overly secure, to keep them from taking themselves too seriously or believing they are more powerful than they are.[3]

In addition, sacred clowns serve an important role in shaping tribal codes. Unbound by societal constraints, heyókȟa are able to violate cultural taboos freely and thus critique established customs.[4] Paradoxically, however, by violating these norms and taboos, they help to define the accepted boundaries, rules, and societal guidelines for ethical and moral behavior. …”

heyokah467

The Sacred Fool kept everyone alert to tribe anomalies by accentuating them so that all could more readily see the problem developing within the tribe’s governing structure or within growing member discontent and divisiveness.

But never did the tribe make a Heyoka the Tribal Chief—the leader of the tribe—because to do so would lead the tribe right off a cliff, or at minimal, lead them right into frictional group chaos, because that’s what Heyokas were best at doing—creating chaos wherever they went.

I personally think that’s what we are presently undergoing in our nation—we’re being lead by the tribe’s Heyoka.

The best behavioral example a Heyoka can ever demonstrate is to show you what NOT to do.

And he’s doing that really well.

 

Live-stream Option for Dr. Joe Event

Again, just passing along the live-stream opportunity here.  Too bad it isn’t free. ($50)

As an energy worker myself, I am encouraged to see how well he explains the energy body and how our total system functions because we tend to think only of our physical body as the instigator of all our illnesses and maladies; but the energy body is the animator of our being and when those main chakra energy centers are blocked or damaged in some way, it throws our physical/mental/emotional systems into complete disarray.

I’ll list the promotion info for the event and then comment again afterwards:

Dr Joe Dispenza – OFFICIAL NEWS & FAN PAGE

“An intentional thought needs an energizer, a catalyst— that energy is an elevated emotion. Heart and mind working together. Feelings and thoughts unified into a state of being. The quantum field doesn’t respond simply to our wishes—our emotional request. It doesn’t just respond to our aims— our thoughts. It only responds when those two are aligned or coherent— that is, when they are broadcasting the same signal. When we combined an elevated emotion with an open heart and conscious intention with clear thought, we signal the field to respond in amazing ways. The quantum field responds not to what we want; it responds to who we are being.

The quantum is the realm of infinite possibility. The only way you can experience this realm is with your awareness, and when you do, your consciousness is connecting to greater levels of frequencies and information.   Dr. Joe is giving you the opportunity of a lifetime to enter the quantum field as the collective consciousness of our community to create a new experience or new possibilities in your life.⁣⁣

You can join our upcoming live stream where Dr. Joe will be breaking down The Formula to change your life radically the live stream is taking place on July 27th at 10am pst (unlimited viewing for 30 days)  ($50 cost)  The main reason we are taking portions of our advanced retreats and turning them into a live stream format is that you, the community, have requested it.⁣⁣

I found this particular testimonial from his workshops was excellent in terms of how a woman worked through the energy release of healing her childhood sexual abuse.   It offers excellent explanations of the chakra energy centers releasing shame/guilt/terror energy blockages and then reopening and realigning the energy centers, and how that physically and emotionally affects us.  Joe explained it more thoroughly as she spoke including physical ramifications of blockages and reopenings.

But honestly I must say that the testimonial prior to that one did make me cringe (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IuvELXutkf0 )  with his hands-y approach to the young woman, and watching her facial discomfort with his wrapping around her from behind and his hand on her chest area (heart chakra location—heart, lungs, bronchial areas because she previously suffered from debilitating asthma).  I do think that was inappropriate and I will call him out on that.  I know what he was saying and doing energy-wise about using his own energetic heart opening behind her to encourage her heart to burst open, but still….the manner in which he demonstrated the heart-opening effect on her was highly inappropriate. And yes, that did adversely taint my opinion of his teaching techniques so we’ll see where it goes from here.

So form your own opinions on the content and benefits of what he is describing.

 

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.

 

Roller Coaster Energies

rollercoasterride33.jpg

I can’t speak for others or what you might personally be feeling, but as an energy-empath I can feel the current turbulence in the energy ocean surrounding us.  After listening to a couple people online who also regularly follow the energies of this time period (Kaypache and Lee Harris), they also are mentioning the energy extremes occurring for us at present.

Harris said it was like riding a roller coaster up, down, over, around, and then repeating it over and over. So take your Dramamine.  ( https://www.leeharrisenergy.com/july-2019-energy-update )

julyleeharrispic345.jpg

Here’s how he phrased it:

“We are definitely in a period of EXTREMES – with extreme speed, extreme transformation and extreme and unexpected happenings in our lives waking us up and shaking us up. As we go through July and August, that unexpected and extreme energy is going to come into sharp focus – both for individuals and for all of us as a collective.

The main themes for July focus on how we can SURF THE EXTREME ENERGY:

  • ALIGNMENT AND REJECTION
  • ELEVATION AND DEPLETION
  • REALIZATION AND REFLECTION …”

***

You can check out his page and video for details, but what I want to mention is this: Energy turbulence all around us creates anxiety within us—an unsettled feeling—an uncertainty—we feel unsure of what is happening and how to react to it—we don’t feel as grounded as we might normally feel—we don’t feel as sure of ourselves and of our ability to deal with whatever we might face.

And in one sense all of those affects can have nothing to do with us personally and yet EVERYTHING to do with us collectively.

kapacheport452.jpgKaypache (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbXHGJg9WRo&feature=share ) described it as a time of deep diving into our repressed emotional wounds to allow the pain to surface, to be reexamined, and then to be willingly released. These turbulent energies are shaking us up and creating the instability within us to allow those repressed feelings and pains from childhood onwards to be released from us completely.  But you have to be willing to reflect on the effect that those experiences have previously had on you, and then to simply let them go. It’s not easily done, but it is VERY necessary to do it, and this is the perfect energy time for it to happen.

“I need to really love myself, In order to go back and heal the wounds of my personal past, to keep my life on track. …

…It’s not easy to go into what we consider our vulnerable weaknesses, and yet, it is where we find our greatest gold! The “outside” may be demanding a lot of our attention, but I’m feeling that it is a test, only a test, of how much we love ourselves. Will we neglect our own personal processes and growth to meet the demands of “the Man,” or will we be strong enough to realize when we have given enough and refuse to be intimidated into giving more. The rewards are great for the inner work which is not so valued in this high paced, expensive, world. It takes guts! Let’s do it!”

***

coasterkids2 (1).jpgBasically all I want to do is to mention to any one reading my blog that IF you are feeling this inner anxiety or a sense of turbulence in your life, and you see no real reason for it, then don’t despair—you aren’t slipping off the deep end.  These are the effects of the energies we are swimming in at present.  They do have a purpose in all their disruption, though it might not seem like a pleasant one.

And if the personal disruption gets too strong and you feel unstable and unable to handle it, then get some help.  Counselors may not understand the “energy turbulence” part, but they are well-versed in allowing you to “talk out” the repressed issues that might be arising for you now because of that energy disruption.

Just saying, …if you have no idea what is actually happening to you, then it can feel pretty mentally destabilizing when all your old STUFF starts swirling around in your head or coming up in your face.

I’m not a certified counselor or a psychologist, but I do know how disruptive these energies can be to your ‘sense of self’—to that concept of who you believe yourself to be, which includes how you’ve always considered yourself.

And the entire point of the current energy disruption is to allow you to release the “old sense of you’ and to encourage the NEW and IMPROVED YOU (the higher-frequency you) to emerge and blossom.

It’s that old ‘water glass scenario’ again—you can’t refill your glass with that pure, clear, nourishing water until you first pour out the old spoiled milk from it, and then thoroughly scrub the glass before refilling.cleanwaterglass44

While it’s totally necessary to do it, it’s often not a pleasant housekeeping task.

Hang in there!  We’ll get through it.

 

Life’s BIG Surprise

surpriseblast89 (1)

What is that BIG surprise? We all want to know this.

Will it be a pleasant surprise or a not-so-much one?

How will we feel when we receive it? 

Happy?  Excited?  Shocked?  Horrified?

 

Well that’s why it’s a surprise because you have no idea what sudden “awakener” will drop on you from out of the blue.  It could even be a bit of space-junk that managed to clear combustion in the atmosphere and crashed through your new, just-paid-for roof and into your livingroom.

You were simply sitting at the kitchen table munching on your second spoonful of Cap’n Crunch, and “BOOM!” –the next room explodes with crashing furniture and plaster dust; and stunned you walks into the disastrous aftermath to see a steaming chunk of rocket debris where your coffee table once stood.  SURPRISE!emojisurpriseface

Yes, you’ll definitely have an unusual conversation piece for your next social gathering, but you might need to rearrange a few things to accommodate it—although the new natural skylight in the ceiling is an added bonus you hadn’t previously considered.

I think most of us try not to think about LIFE’s next BIG surprise because like the mock scenario above, some of our previous ones weren’t necessarily pleasant; and you can insert your own example here. I know that I certainly have mine.

But through that underlying anxiety of whatever LIFE suddenly “bestows” upon us without our knowledge or permission, we know that surprises are simply another aspect of LIFE. We learn through surprises.

We learn mainly about ourselves and our resourcefulness/resilience by having to work through their unanticipated debris-field afterwards.

Surprises either make us happy, or they make us stronger.  But we never let surprises break us.

So I vote for happy future surprises.happybabysurprised.jpg

But hopefully I’m well-prepared mentally and physically for whatever might occur instead because after all, that’s simply LIFE.

And if you haven’t seriously considered the possibility of a sudden “surprise” occurring for any of us, then perhaps you should consider it, because, you know,  …SURPRISE!

 

 

Where Are We?

wherearewequote55.jpg

The “WE” here refers to ALL of us as humans; and we are a diverse group.

We are gender-determined for species propagation purposes, but not limited by gender for all other purposes.

We are perpetual social studies in dichotomies: We are darkness and light, cruel and kind, selfish and selfless.

And right now at this moment in time, we are here—wherever that actually is in our human consciousness evolution.wherearewestopsign45.jpg

But WHERE exactly is that here?  Where on this evolutional consciousness-progression are we?

With all the vocalized hatred spewing throughout the airwaves, I’m finding it hard to determine the exact location of that group consciousness “WHERE” we might be.

I mean it should be pretty simple to determine, shouldn’t it, just by answering a few key question, like:

  • How do we want our world to be…for ourselves, for our families, for our neighbors, and for our brothers and sisters throughout the world?
  • How do we personally want to live—in loving acceptance of others or in constant fear of them?
  • How do we really want to consider others—as friends and comrades in this large group endeavor or as enemies competing for every earthly resource and every inch of ground?
  • And how do we ourselves wish to be viewed—as reliable, good people and trustworthy associates to others, or as unscrupulous, conniving predators eyeing any opportunity to advance our own agenda?

I could easily rant and rage here about our present state of world chaos but it’s senseless to do so, because unless each of us determines for ourselves the best possible solution to those “HOW” questions above, nothing in our lives will change for the better.

camefromwombquote.jpg

Are we simply WHERE we are meant to be both individually and as a group collective as determined by fate alone?

Or are we merely hiding our heads behind multiple daily distractions allowing others to make those necessary world changes for us—allowing others to make the key life choices for us?

Are we really that apathetic or deluded to believe “others”—particularly power-hungry, political others with their own personal agendas—really have our best interests at heart, so we will let them determine our lives for us?

We, as a species and a world culture, have such potential for greater overall heightened awareness and better understanding of each other’s unique attributes, gifts, and educational value to the larger human group.

And at the same time we have such innate tendencies toward shallowness, self-interest, and pettiness.

The chaotic world we know at present is the result of choices we have previously made; and the world of tomorrow will be the result of choices we have yet to make.

betterpersonquote67.png

 

Be present.  Be here NOW.

Be aware that the choice you make today to BE the better person in your own life and in the lives of those around you makes the difference tomorrow in our every earthly endeavor.

When you allow darkness to perpetuate through hate language or fear mongering, and you say nothing against it—when you say nothing to STOP IT—you are allowing it to spread like cancer throughout your own life and the lives of those you most love.

At some point where we are will no longer be an unanswered question due to the present inclination for so many of us to avoid those hard decisions to prevent hatred from consuming us.

It will likely remain unanswered because we as a species will no longer exist to ask it.
