Our Own Version of Reality

I’ve previously mentioned that I’ve had training in many energy-work modalities: Usui and Karuna REIKI, Hypnotism, Multi-dimensional work, and Shamanic apprenticing from teachers of the Peruvian lineage.wesselmanquote6.png

I’m a big fan of Alberto Villoldo, an early reader of Carlos Castaneda’s entire collection, and the shamanic influence list goes on to include Sandra Ingerman, Michael Harner, Jose Luis Stevens, Jose Ruiz, Betsy Bergstrom, and many others including Hank Wessleman mentioned in the image quote.

When I say that reality is not what we often think that it is—solid, unchanging, finite, and dependable—I mean I’ve personally seen for myself that it isn’t.  Been there—done that—NOT fun!

When I talk about shifting dimensions of existence and personally witnessing the visual environment around me change, including the energy-frequency level changes, I do so NOT with “authority,” but with complete humility.  If you could see what the possibilities are out there beyond your own little myopic bubble of reality, it could shock you into cataleptic silence.   And to some, I believe that is exactly what has happened. Touring these other dimensions can be a fantasy-land for exploration or it can be a never-ending nightmare blocking your return to consensus reality.

Give it a few more decades, and I think mental health professionals will have a completely different perspective on what their clients are experiencing from a much shamnismglobalsumm64.jpgbroader consideration of what “reality” entails and encompasses.

I also believe that shamanic work is not for the faint of heart; and to those folks whose natural-born receptors were tuned to accessing the energy frequencies of those other multi-realms (mediums, psychics, schizophrenics, …to name a few), it can be hard to decipher what is REAL and commonly shared by others, and what is more unique to your own perspective and abilities.  Determining where your personal boundaries end and something else’s begins, is often not as easy as it might seem.

During shamanic therapy sessions, you the practitioner, often work with “helper” beings (Angels/Arch Angels, Spirit Animals, Spirit Helpers) to safely journey through other realms, or gather Akashic records information, or retrieve lost soul parts for a client; so deciphering whose voice you are hearing when you close your eyes and determining the intention behind spiritanimalshamanism4.jpgthe “advice” that voice offers to you, can be a learning process in itself.  Visuals aren’t always trustworthy. One thing you learn early in shamanic work is that “Things are seldom what they seem to be” and TRUST with your Spirit Helpers, is earned in time.

I view the Wesselman quote above as mild in the “What’s out there?” considerations, and it can be easily applicable to most psychological assessments of how people live their lives: We see what we want to see. We believe what we want to believe. When we decide that reality operates one particular way and exclude other possibilities, we limit ourselves to constantly substantiating our set beliefs—we thought-loop how we view life in general to expect more of the same for us from one minute to the next.

Many times we create and substantiate our reality bubble around us to shield us or protect us from other possible “realities” that do not match our own view.  We are physiologically/energetically designed to hold our own version of reality unless our energy fields are damaged allowing “other things” to access us and affect us. This can include the physical body’s problem with invading viruses or bacteria, or it can include the energy body’s leakage points or chakra/auric field damage.

I could go on and on here, but overall for this posting I simply want to emphasize that what we call REALITY is a consensus view—a mutually beneficial agreement by masses of people pertaining to the playing field on which we all operate.  For that mutual, consensus agreement, we as a unified group in this plane of existence, conclude that reality is substantial and unchanging. realitycacethought.jpg

Except it isn’t.  It is very changeable.

It is changeable because we can create our own realities. But you have to believe that you can do so, to actually DO it.

It’s all a matter of belief.  Ask any theologian the historical importance of that statement.

Archetypes and Metaphors

Referring to my Aug. 5 post: “We Do Not Yet Understand,” I had that avatars theme looping through my noggin yesterday.

The concepts of archetypal symbology coupled with the words “LIFE as Metaphor” kept archetypesslipping into the avatar scenario playing in my head. To me, archetype theory is a very important subject.  I’ve been fascinated by C.G. Jung’s theories on archetypes for decades.

Caroline Myss also provided a great exposition on the subject in her own book, Sacred Contracts: Awakening Your Divine Potential. I recommend those reads to anyone wishing to explore the subject further.

sacred contracts.jpgI’ve always felt that there was far greater importance to the archetypes theory than most folks acknowledge, so when all my afore-mentioned thought tangents converged—the archetypes symbolism merged with the avatar imagery while LIFE as metaphor phrase kept bouncing between my ears, I recognized the significance of the union.

Let’s consider that WE are avatar archetypes (set players with a game plan) per Jung and Myss; and as archetypes we are here exploring certain life themes (If you are not familiar with archetypes Myss explains over 70 archetypes on this page:  https://www.myss.com/free-resources/sacred-contracts-and-your-archetypes/appendix-a-gallery-of-archtypes/ ).

Those life themes are the “tasks” we are assigned for this life experience—tasks that create learning situations where we explore our reactions, emotions and thought processes pertaining to how the symbolic archetype that we represent (i.e., victim, warrior, savior, …etc.) views and responds to the potential situation.wheel.jpg

The primary, personal archetype that WE represent would naturally perceive the situation a certain way (i.e., victim/perceives a possible threat, warrior/ perceives a hearty challenge, savior/ perceives the sacrifice necessary to intervene,…etc.).

So how that archetypal avatar (meaning YOU or ME) would react to the situation would be dependent on the clarity and strength of our self-concept besides our own interpretation/perceptual filter of what was happening to us.

But then how does the LIFE as metaphor come into play?

Per www.dictionary.com, “A metaphor is a figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable in order to suggest a resemblance,…” .

metaphors.jpg

Okay, …but to me, a metaphor goes beyond a “suggestion of resemblance,” it creates a word image packed with emotional residue/personal memories used in the sentence to convey a deeper association to the subject matter than the literal statement can carry on its own. It touches a deeper part of us than the cerebral description can muster.

So when I repeat the phrase LIFE as metaphor, I mean LIFE is far deeper than surface appearance “doings” and is only the superficial representative of a greater implication; or what we do in our daily living is only representative of something we may not be able to comprehend any other way.

LIFE as living metaphor means that our daily doings are symbolic representations of the greater reason that we are here exploring these scenarios as specific archetypal avatars.

We aren’t just players in the Grand Play of LIFE, we are also the directors of the actions and playwrights of the endings.

Our main problem is that we don’t comprehend our multi-functioning capacities in the larger picture.

I asked in the previous posting on avatars what our 7-D SELF gets out of watching our 3-D self struggle around with these challenging situations. I’ll ask it again a different way using a metaphor:

theatre.jpg

What does the playwright get out of writing, casting, directing, and watching his/her play being performed?

“…We Do Not Yet Understand…”

Naissim.jpgI’d been thinking for quite some time about this very subject when I ran across this image and quote on Facebook from Nassim Haramein, The Resonance Project: of how the metaphysical and spiritual realms are likely explainable to the general population consciousness; but that we aren’t presently capable of, or in some instances, desiring to explain it.

The reason for the inability to explain metaphysical and spiritual realms lies not in the actual existence of them, but in the willingness of the intended audience to hear the true explanations if those physics laws that govern their existence could actually be defined.

Why we presently CAN’T explain them is because they don’t adhere to 3-dimensional laws of physics. They aren’t meant to be defined by 3-D laws, and that’s why we have such a hard time wrapping our minds around them.

It’s far easier to shrug off the “higher-power”  WHY? questions as being the actions and intentions of a great, omnipotent force—a God whose quirks and preferences are conveniently defined within each religion’s doctrines.

I would guess that the present inability to explain metaphysical and spiritual realms represents such a Pandora’s Box of explosive repercussions that it is avoided by those most capable of opening it.  dominoe.jpg

It metaphorically presents an infinitely-long, winding string of end-standing dominoes just waiting for a gentle nudge on the first one to send them all careening forward into total collapse.

And that is NOT an overstatement when you consider how many of the world’s organized religions would face instant annihilation of their carefully-crafted beliefs; and the explanations for human/world’s existence would be tossed aside like yesterday’s trash by a few complex equations and theorems.

I say this because once the actual physics explanation is achieved that explains how all dimensions of existence coincide with each other—explains how we as energy beings can exist on multiple dimensions simultaneously—explains how TIME is a relative construct for comprehending energy expenditures within a 3-dimensional framework—explains how perception and attention can shift through those multidimensional levels of existence as easily as tuning an analog radio dial—explains how REALITY is only as REAL as you believe it to be—then how do you ever go back to believing what you have been repeatedly told from your birth onwards?

multiverseThat would mean that everything you once believed to be true, would be in fact a lie.

When we hear or read something that truly explains how we, on this level of existence as we struggle through our daily challenges, are somehow on another level of awareness—watching ourselves in the process of living—where we at some higher level of energy existence are like spectators at a sporting event watching ourselves play on the field of life; or where we are like a captivated audience enthralled by the mock-television drama of our very lives playing out on the screen in front of us; how do we in the here and now, reconcile this split-consciousness to ourselves without losing our grip on sanity?

Standing here with our bare feet on the cold, hard floor of the here and now, it’s hard to even consider this as a possibility.

How can this be? We ask. How can this happen? WHY does it happen? What reasoning makes sense to all this insanity that why.jpgwe live daily?

Is there a reason why someone you love dies? Is there a reason for all the hardship and pain everywhere in the world? What could those reasons ever be?  You ask.

If there is a GOD, how could that GOD be so cruel? So callous? So uncaring?

***

There are days when I feel SO CLOSE to understanding all those existential questions I listed above. I sometimes feel that if my arms were just a little longer I could reach out and grab those answers that are presently lying just beyond my grasp—teasing me with their proximity and gravity of meaning.

My guess is that the real multi-dimensional scenario is more like what I’m about to describe:

spiritWhat if the GOD making those questionable decisions was actually YOU on some other dimensional level—what if it was some higher aspect of YOU pitting yourself in this 3-D level of existence against challenges that test your limits of endurance and resourcefulness to verify your 7-D theories by creating 3-D experiential evidence?

What if on THAT level of higher existence, you felt nothing—no pain—no extremes of emotions?

What if on that level you were simply watching an interactive show on some mind-boggling 3-D game-scape—with no more emotional involvement than as an interested spectator testing out a theory with you as a role-playing avatar in a simulated setting?

The problem with that consideration is that on THIS level of existence—YOU ARE THE AVATAR! You feel the knocks—the blows—the pain. You see the direct result of bad decisions, wrong choices, and dreams dashed. This isn’t some simulation to you—this is LIFE as YOU know it!

But think about this further—what would our present existence mean from that 7-D vantage point? What are you learning there about what is happening here?

Hard to even imagine, isn’t it?

***

Well, as I earlier said, I think I’m close to understanding more than this surface wizard.jpgcomprehension of our existence, but I, like just about everyone else, can merely speculate on the behind-the-scene string pulling, and I can only guess at who actually sits in the Wizard’s chair.

Who knows, maybe it’s you. Or …maybe it’s me.

Trippin’ on Tom Kenyan

Thanks to the recommendation of a good friend, I purchased and listened to TK’s “The SPHERE.gifSphere of All Possibilities”—which is a ten-disk set of a 2012 workshop with that title.

It wasn’t my first experience of Tom Kenyan’s amazing vocal range and vibratory tones having heard him many years ago, but this set is particularly “trippy.”   It took me 3 days to hear all ten disks because I needed grounding time between them. Do NOT listen to these while driving!

For those who are unfamiliar with Tom Kenyan but interested, I would suggest going to his website and simply listening to some of his FREE sound meditation samples, i.e.: http://tomkenyon.com/listening  click on the “I Agree” highlight, and the page bottom opens to a number of options for your listening experience.  You’ll know in short order whether or not you like what he offers.

In this particular set he goes into depth on the Hathors—beings of a higher Aethosvibration/dimension who are in contact with him; and a level of consciousness called by them as The Aethos, which is “a bandwidth of consciousness anchored in pure non-duality.” (As described in his article on “The Aethos and Non-dual States of Consciousness.”)

Aside from the amazing vibratory resonances induced by the music meditations in this set, his explanations prior to the meditations are excellent as well. It explained some issues that I’ve had about “Oneness” and “Non-dual States of Consciousness” far better than other explanations that I’ve heard.  What he described felt like TRUTH to me, but if you listen to the set you’ll have to decide for yourself whether it resonates as TRUTH with you.

Kenyan in coveAnd please don’t misunderstand my intentions for mentioning this. I am NOT pushing Tom Kenyan’s work, especially because it wasn’t cheap to purchase “The Sphere of All Possibilities” 10-disk set.  I’m merely sharing the information of availability just like I would for a library book or a particular author that I had enjoyed.  Tom Kenyan’s work will likely appeal to some and probably not to others just like any other subject that I mention here.

However, as an energy-worker myself, I understand that the world we believe to be reality is only “real” on the level of vibration that most of us share; and at higher levels of vibration, it ceases to exist. So from that vantage point, reality is pretty malleable, just as I can show you how malleable TIME is when doing hypnosis Past-Life Exploration.

Over the years that I’ve been around, I’ve seen and felt things that had no explanation in this world’s frame of reference. I can even show you a photo personally taken by me with not only “orbs” floating around, but one of them is a distinctly colored-orb beside a cat staring at it. The question I might ask is what makes that purple one different from the others besides the color of it?Lonna baby horse 016.JPG

Here’s a closer view of the purple one. Notice the labyrinth in the sphere. I don’t know if you can see it from this picture but some of the uncolored ones also have similar patterns within them.  That being said and shown, Tom Kenyan described it through the Hathors in this way:purple orb and cat.jpg

From our perspective, you possess a form that is human-like up through the ninth dimension. Each successive dimension of consciousness is subtler (less dense) than the one before it. For those who enter the tenth dimension, form, as you know it, disappears completely, and you become more geometric in nature.

When we (Hathors) enter the tenth dimension we become spheres. We are not the spheres that show up in photographs that some people refer to as orbs. True orbs, as opposed to photographic artifacts or hoaxes, are interdimensional beings that have spherical geometry.

And if you look more closely these spheres will reveal complex labyrinths inside. The spherical nature of interdimensional beings is a commonality, and many different types of beings have this geometric form.”  (From “The Fifth Perspective: Transcending Space and Time”)

So that being said, as evidenced by the pictures above it was pretty crowded that day watching the little filly race around with her mom. (We raised the mom ourselves—that’s why we were there to see the baby.)

Now in my range of strange experiences, these “orb” images aren’t that unusual. The camera I used at the time captured them in other settings as well.  And I am pretty open-minded to believing that we humans are simultaneously existing on other dimensions of being at the same time that we are in this dimension.Inter space

But I am further open-minded to believing that other beings who normally exist on other dimensions of existence do occasionally visit us to see what we are doing, i.e., as in the orb pictures. So Tom Kenyan and his channeling the Hathors’ messages and music/frequencies are within my “believability range.”

And there you have it. I think that Tom Kenyan is always worth a listen, and some sound meditations are FREE if you are interested.

As for “The Sphere of All Possibilites” subject-matter explanations and the overall effectiveness of the 10-disc set, I guess you’d have to decide for yourselves. But they are definitely trippy, which I imagine is their intention.
