How to Create Order from Disorder—Feeling the ELEPHANT

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It’s just a very large ELEPHANT.

August Energies: Dancing Between the Old and the New

Of the ‘energy assessors’ that I follow, I thought Lee Harris had the better analysis for August 2019 energies, and felt that it needed to be shared.  So my suggestion is to simply visit the website mentioned below where the video and transcript of his August energy assessment is available for you. (But I did break out a few key points below for emphasis.)

Energy Update August 2019

“If you are feeling like you have been through the wringer the last month or so, you are right on track. August will in some ways be a lot calmer and smoother in terms of the waters of life. But that’s in preparation for September when the speed will kick off again, so this is a month where we enter a new phase for the rest of the year. So, many of you will feel like you’re coming to the end of a period of reviewing and clearing in August, and ready to move into a period from September onwards where more birth and foundational energy will be available. August itself will have a very different energy signature to the last 2 or 3 months; a period which brought with it many surprises, twists and turns, and unexpected events.

The main themes to focus on for August for this NEW PHASE WE ARE ENTERING are:

  • A NEW LEVEL OF PRESENCE
  • VISIONS, DREAMS AND EPIPHANIES
  • SELF-CARE BEING NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER

What I was shown for August is that we’re about to enter a very new phase which makes sense of the last month or two – the intensity, the push-pull, the high emotions, the moving from one state to another quite fast. There has been a lot of vibrational upshift happening, in an awkward, uncomfortable or sometimes messy way. But this has been in relation to (and preparation for) the new phase we enter now in August. So, for those of you who are looking for a reprieve from the intensity, and surfing the extremes of the past few months, it’s going to take some time for that ‘clearing’ phase to calm down somewhat. So, self-care and your self-care needs are going to continue to be of high importance….”

***

“…So is it a new awareness you are opening or a new nudge to actually ‘create’ that you are having? Important to discern the difference right now as it can be tricky to know which.

I bring this up because in August especially, these dreams, visions, epiphanies and ideas are going to continue to be strong as part of you reviewing your life, this world, and reviewing what’s next. We’re in a planetary wide review of life and consciousness itself, and it’s an experience that’s going on for everybody….

***

“…There are more people in emotional, physical or circumstantial need right now on the planet than ever before. You’ll notice this and you’ll notice that these struggles are often the catalyst to awaken people into their hearts, their consciousness. It’s a shame it has to happen that way. It’s far nicer when it happens without a pressured circumstance, but that pressure is a part of how consciousness is opening and spreading across the planet….

***

“…And remember that for all of us it can be quite challenging, as we dance between old parts of ourself and new parts of ourself. So remember that today is new – and everything that we’re about to move through is quite new. But most of us in this dance of the extremes that I was talking about, especially in the month of July, we’re going between old patterns, old ideas, old beliefs and then straight into new ideas, new beliefs, new experiences….”         —Lee  Harris

 

 

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.

 

Pure Consciousness

The concept of pure consciousness is a hard one to fathom because we are beings of limited consciousness trying to make sense of something that exists far beyond our normal operating capabilities.rainbowgeometryvessel.jpg

When Joe is saying that if you take your mind off everything that you think you know or think that you are, and simply stop thinking in general and simply BE in the moment—NOT thinking, NOT doing, just sitting quietly and breathing in and breathing out—allowing your senses to cease inputting the nuances of your environment to the ‘awake mind’ that interprets sensory data; then in that momentary silence and stillness you can actually tap (or merge) into the realm of pure consciousness that you really are—an energy molecule connected to and riding the frequency waves of the quantum field.

He explains a bit below on the Facebook link shown; and I know that what he is offering here is not free, but at least I can share the info and opportunity with anyone further interested in what he might be offering.

I do believe that the more we consider the possibilities of our true nature (pure energy), the faster we comprehend how “changeable” our lives and our world really are.  Of anything that he teaches, he does stress that changability aspect—that the world we create is of our own making, so we have to change our way of viewing ourselves interacting with our world and with each other, to make this a better life for everyone, including for ourselves.

“If you took your attention off of your body, your life, your identity, the thing things you own, the people you know, the places you go, and the concept of time, the only thing you’d be left with is pure consciousness. That means you’d be disinvesting your attention and energy out of this 3D reality and placing it on this immaterial realm called the quantum field—a place in which only energy, light, and information exists as frequency. And if where you place your attention is where you place your energy, and if you place all of your attention on this invisible field of energy that can’t be experienced with your senses—only with your awareness (or consciousness)—then you would be investing your attention and energy into the field. This is the realm that gives birth to matter. But how does matter take form?⁣⁣

joequantumfieldquote789

“If you stripped an atom down to its raw essentials, all that exists is energy and information, but the atom is not without design. Even at that quantum level, there within exists a structure and orderliness, so there must be some intelligence or force that is unifying and ordering them. The question then is—if you could get beyond your body, beyond the people in your life, the things you own, the places you visit, and time itself—if you took your attention off of everything material, could you connect to this energy? And if you could connect with this more organized, more coherent energy, would it not bring more organized and coherent energy into your body and life, both internally and externally?”   Dr. Joe Dispenza⁣

Perceiving the World as REAL

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

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

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

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

***

“…The Light Body

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

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

… The Neuroscience of Enlightenment

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

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

 

2018 Jan 30 —THE NEUROSCIENCE OF ENLIGHTENMENT

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

The Heart as Tuning Dial

What I’ve noticed lately is that whether or not I am in a good mood or a less-than-good mood depends solely on where I hold my thoughts.  As an energy practitioner, I know a number of ways to raise my frequency (my vibration) so that when life around me seems a little too distracting or even disheartening, I know that I have a choice in how I react to that initial feeling, and I have a choice in what I actually do about it.  First and foremost—every moment is a choice for us.

I want to stress this again: Every moment is a choice in how we respond to it.

nassimquotetuningdialheart6.jpg

We can choose to simply accept whatever is negatively affecting us and drop into some grumpy funk, or we can choose to shift our own mood higher because we control our thoughts and our emotions.

While we tend to think of ourselves as passive receivers of life’s blessings and curses, what we don’t seem to understand is that much of what we are experiencing is because we are actively calling those like-resonating frequencies to us to address them in some way—whether to heal a long-buried, still-simmering, childhood resentment or to possibly heal a recurring and unpleasant interaction with another person that we keep trying to avoid—like family members or once-close friends.

Until we harmoniously address those still unresolved energy-dissonance issues, they will keep returning to us for yet another chance to do so.  (Remember, you don’t forgive the mistakes of others so that THEY can move on—you forgive them so YOU can move on with your life—otherwise those recurring disruptive energies are still taking up too much brain-space in your head.)

Sometimes these festering unpleasant thoughts that invade our minds and cloud our better intentions are externally triggered by forces we can’t foresee.  Right now for whatever reason, be it excess gamma radiation from the sun, or ancestral karma rising to the surface for proper release, or just everyone’s current state of undeniable craziness due to constant chaos in our world, all of us are experiencing  deep psychological tremors shaking within us that can make us question our mental stability. There’s lots of unpleasant “STUFF” rising to the surface now for re-examination and release.

And if you know exactly what I’m referring to, don’t despair. We’re all feeling it.

But what I most want you to know is that you do have a choice in the matter of how you allow those inner disruptions to affect you.

whatwethinkwebecomebuddha.png

As Nassim Haramein and Dr. Joe Dispenza both remind us here, you can change your personal vibration simply by focusing your thoughts and emotions to where you want them to be. And the more you hold the higher frequencies of love and compassion in your heart, the more likely you are to attract those very frequencies from others around you.  This isn’t woo-woo talking—it’s physics.  The frequency you hold in your energy field is what you attract—it’s called the Law of Attraction.

If your present thoughts are heavy with sadness or grief, then yes, please do examine the possible reason for those powerful, lower-frequency feelings, but then shift your thoughts to where you want them to be—to a happier time, to a loving moment, to a better tomorrow where your life feels good and you are supremely happy with lots of love and full support from your environment.

As odd as this sounds, lifting your thoughts to a higher place and bringing your emotions (heart-felt) to that same level of higher resonance (love frequency), naturally shifts your personal energy-field vibration higher and you attract more loving, like-vibration people and situations to you.

Try it for yourself.

Nassim Haramein

“A Visualization from Nassim Haramein: Consider your own body being made mostly of space. Close your eyes and experience the space that you’re made of and the space around you vibrating like a crystal. Then imagine that the rate of vibration of your biocrystal structure in the structure of the vacuum is equivalent to the information pouring in and out of you, in the same way that a crystal radio set tuned to a certain frequency allows you to hear a specific radio station. In the body, if the brain is the antennae of the radio set, the tuning dial is the heart, which defines the frequency of information received through the fluid dynamics rhythm of your body, and which can be altered by your emotional state.”

When I Was a Child…

childeyesface.jpg

King James Bible:  1 Corinthians 13:11
“When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a (wo)man, I put away childish things.”

***

My personal beliefs have evolved over the years, from what I was first taught as an impressionable, wanting-to-please-others child to my present state of open consideration for the mystical qualities of everything existing around me.

I have gone from believing what I was first told during my earliest comprehension of the world to now believing what I see, feel, hear, taste, smell, and inherently KNOW for myself about my immediate environment and my seeming relationship to it.

Throughout my life I might have been what a few perplexed others politely termed a “seeker of knowledge”—a “seeker” of how the world really is—a “seeker” of my true place in that world—a 2b65e217d7b64fcefa74b9beefbe607e“seeker” of a tribe to belong to and to share with my newly-found, intuitive truths.

I’ve even been (and still am) a “seeker” of TRUTH itself, because as I grew in years, I was ever more certain that what we all were being daily force-fed by others was NOT truth—it was just someone else’s interpretation of TRUTH.  And those interpretations of truth were often tainted by the life-experiences of the interpreter, or worse, tainted by the interpreter’s personal motivations for trying so hard to convince us that his particular religious decree was TRUTH—or far worse than that—trying to convince us that his was the-one-and-only-TRUTH for everyone.

Even as that constantly-questioning child, I could readily see the hypocrisy between the words and the actions of the parishioners attending church each Sunday—of the Sunday poundingpreacherschool teachers themselves—even of the preacher raising his voice and pounding his fist on the lectern or pointing his finger at the rest of us and calling us “sinners.”

To me that young sponge of budding awareness, being forced to sit there in that pew with those faux-pious people listening to that blunderbuss at the pulpit ranting and railing about our human weaknesses and frailties, just felt wrong, and I hated having to be there and being forced to listen to all of their histrionics and phoniness.

I didn’t realize back then as a child that I was a natural intuitive, besides being an empath—that means I could simply KNOW things and kinesthetically FEEL things about people and situations without knowing how I was doing it. But I did know that those knowings and feelings were usually pretty accurate.

zingerintuitive-empath

What I also didn’t realize back then was that those two slowly developing abilities—my intuition and my kinesthetic sensing of discordant energy vibrations—were my natural “BULLSHIT” detectors, and when those BS warnings were triggered in my body, I became instantly distrusting of who or what might be creating that energy dissonance within me.  That internal ‘BS buzz’ was an unpleasant feeling that I wished to avoid, so I often kept to myself in crowds unless I was near someone who resonated more purely and authentically.  Authentic folks (the gentle person they show to you is who they really are), I felt more comfortable with but they were rare finds in my early life.

Now from my present age and experience base (especially my experience as an energy practitioner), I more readily understand what was occurring back then with the ‘BS buzz,’ and can better appreciate my own early stubbornness at refusing to be brainwashed into the beliefs of others that did not resonate harmoniously with me.

Early in life I was once shy and kept to myself, but I’m no longer shy because I better understand what is really happening when I’m around other people now.  I can better protect my own energy boundaries and prevent myself from picking up the vibrational dissonance in other’s energy fields if I’m near them.

bsdetectormeter

And yes, I can still detect people’s lies and half-truths when I hear them, but I’m less concerned about being personally contaminated by their opinions and beliefs—because I need not continue to be around them or listen to them spewing it. I simply push an internal “MUTE” button for those folks and walk away.

Like the Bible verse above—the Bible I seldom, if ever, quote:  I put away those childish insecurities of needing to be liked and needing to be a part of the accepted group of popular opinion and belief.

I became a self-empowered woman.   

And I stand quite well on my own now.

self-em[poweredwoman.jpg

More importantly, so can you!
