“Narcissism: the Evolution of Consciousness” per Caroline Myss

One of the nice things about Facebook (at least for those of us who do still use it) is the ability to receive info offers from sources that might appeal to you.  One of those info sources for me is “Sounds True” (founder is Tami Simon) who often provides FREE (with limited-time availability) psychology-related summits that I find both interesting and informative.  And if I think these summits are interesting enough for sharing, I usually provide a link here so that others can view the materials for themselves if they wish.understandingnarcissismst.jpg

Lately I’ve been listening daily to the latest Sounds True summit on “Understanding Narcissism” (Day 5 yesterday) within the 24-hour FREE time periods for each day: “Understanding Narcissism Summit with 20 leading experts in psychology and spirituality.”

The gist of this summit’s importance is “that as Americans, we are living in an era of narcissism: social media addiction, overall lack of presence and empathy, and increased societal division”; that and the current resident of the Oval Office demonstrates daily what being a Malignant Narcissist entails, so if you wanted to better understand him, here is the chance with this summit.  Overall I think it’s a timely and interesting presentation of 20 leading authorities on the subject matter of narcissism in general.  (And yes, some folks are more interesting than others to me.)

Overall for the Sounds True folks, the focus is on first understanding what is really happening to us personally as well as culturally in this current narcissistic group dynamic, and then determining how best to shift the current narcissistic focus from ME to WE to mend the deep social divisions in our country.

Yesterday I was hearing Day 5’s presentations beginning with Caroline Myss, who is considered more so a spiritual teacher than the other psychologists and therapists carolmyss456.jpgwho had been presenting prior to her, and one I’ve been listening to over the last two decades.  Initially to me she seemed a strange choice for this particular summit, but then she began talking about overviews and the BIG PICTURE of why this era of narcissism is happening to us as a group consciousness, so I naturally perked up to hear her unique thoughts on the subject matter of “narcissism as being a stage of consciousness” that we are meant to go through in our own soul’s evolution.

A few sentences in, she shifted the entire summit for me from “how to treat narcissism and those affected by the malignant narcissist that they may work or live with daily” to WHY we as a society and culture are “exploring” the archetype of Narcissist right now; and then everything shifted in my head to better see the reasoning for those socially chaotic decades of my own life during the time period from late 60’s to the present.

According to Caroline during the turmoil of the late 60’s, youth felt “the need to break away to discover our individuality—our individual self—to launch on the journey of our INNER SELF—to find out what am I capable or—what am I made of?  The 60’s was a decade of REVOLUTION.  That sense of ‘I’m not going to take this anymore—you can’t tell me what to do—you can’t send me to war I don’t understand… Revolution was the first phase of breaking out of a Tribal thought-form—this is archetypal.  In the 60’s this template began, and it was collective. It exploded—it downloaded into our global soul and the REVOLUTION began (to separate ME from WE)….the sense of INNER SELF and PERSONAL was born. ..Now when we are in the revolutionary stage—the BIRTH of the SELF—you may know what you ‘won’t take anymore’, but you may not know what you WILL take—or what you DO want.  You don’t know what you DO want—all you know is that when you are revolting, ‘you know what you do NOT want’ and ‘what you will NOT accept’. …’I won’t take this anymore’…you are revolting against the control of a system or a person or a structure to control how you perceive reality.  That’s important for you to understand that. …What’s controlling your perceptions—what’s controlling your capacity to respond—to make choices. And another way for you to understand this is to reduce it—condense it—to something that makes sense to you—YOU DON’T WANT YOUR POWER CONTROLLED so you are revolting against those who try to control your ‘power to decide for yourself’.” 

Wow! Bingo! That’s it completely. It took this personal revolt from the accepted norm to get us to this point in awareness, but now we must evolve further to survive our own self-focus. She continued:

“Out of that revolution of the 60’s came the ‘collective permission’ to pursue something that never existed before , called the Inner Self. So we collectively gave birth to a hybrid EGO that we never had before. …We had a survival Ego but we never had this collective ‘Inner-Self’ focus. carolinemyssportrait678.jpg

…Another thought-form that made its way into the Collective at this time, which was a gargantuan and mystical truth but it came in kind of a ‘pop-camp’ package, was that WE CREATE OUR OWN REALITY. …Now while at a mystical level we participate in the creation of our own reality, ..that profound mystical teaching got translated into kind of a pop-culture way which says ‘I can choose whatever I want, I’m free to do whatever I want, and I create my reality, and there it is! …It’s not unlike the way the Churches took the profound teachings of Jesus and reduced them to the politics of the CHURCH so that you don’t even see those profound , mystical teachings that later had to come through Saint Francis of Assisi or Theresa of Avila. ..This mystical sense of spirituality that exploded within us in the 60’s—that produced this longing in us to find our own path—the Spirit that lit up our nuclear power base—it compelled people in the 60’s to seek what was named ‘this Spiritual Path.’  And that caused people to break away from the Tribe. …and the slightest Tribal shift is going to get a repercussive reaction from members of the Tribe.  So we formed our own Tribe—of Spiritual seekers—so we went from one traditional tribe to another Tribe of outrageous individuals who called themselves Hippies, … they had to strike out at the beginning of this movement of finding the Inner Self.  ..This movement eventually laid the groundwork for what we call Narcissism…the Narcissist—the you can’t tell me what to do—I need to find myself.  This is how the momentum began that literally launched this tremendous appetite and permission to go our own way. 

60’s blended into 70’s, Hippies grew up and had children of their own and gradually moved into the 2nd stage of revolution is INVOLUTION. … Once you say I don’t want this—you will always retreat inside—to look within to see what you Do want. …now you listen for the voice of the INNER SELF to know what you Do want. ..Now you’re in a different field of power—now it’s clear you have to make a choice. ..You are shifting from having been controlled to feeling a different voice.  The 70’s was an involution decade.  But what came out of that was exactly what came out of you…you start piecing together a path.  You start asking yourself ‘What do I need?’ and it always begins with the discovery and existence of your inner self. ..Now you realize that nothing begins without SELF-ESTEEM.  Self-esteem will become a part of this journey of you putting yourself together.  Of you developing a voice. ..Of you becoming a whole person. …Enter the 1980’s—The DECADE OF THE NARCISSIST.  And now we move into the stage of you becoming a Narcissist—the essential stage and the risky stage.  This was the decade that gave rise to Narcissism—the decade in many ways, in which we are psychically stuck.

This is why we need the Narcissistic Phase:  We need it because breaking away from the Tribal Journey requires a great deal of inner-self stamina, lest you get reeled back in. …

What’s going on here at a very different level is that we are all of us on a track of discovering the power of our own soul to participate in acts of creation—that in fact every word we say sets in motion an act of creation… that every thought results into setting energy into motion…that every feeling sets sparks of energy into creation…that every choice we make is this moment in time where we need to ascend to a level of inner knowledge where we truly understand that we are vessels of creative power and that is the nature of God within us and around us.  The nature of God is expressed through the creative laws of the Universe—that we are governed by these laws….

…That we are a species participating in a constant flow of all that is created. …We are becoming hyper-sensitive—hyper-aware of our own selves—we are becoming Narcissistic –but in fact it is a hyper-awareness of our own creative ability. …to impact our biology and impact the biology of others.  In this journey of becoming aware of the power within us, but it has brought us to the illusion of our own significance—but it is the power that is significant—not ourselves wielding it. …We need to become mindful enough to manage ourselves. Like a spiritual art-form to move through the dark side of Narcissism…where we embrace our shadow-side self—sense of self-importance—and move beyond it—the words we say are important in their power—but not that WE are important in saying them.  When we believe that WE are the center of the universe, is the dark side of narcissism.  When we feel entitled—‘blame, deserve, entitlement’ are the sources of your greatest suffering on earth.  We need to humble up. … We need to recognize and reclaim our true power, but not focus on our personal ability to do so. It’s not about us—it’s about the ability we all have to create with intention….

narcissism2.jpgThe task of the Narcissist is to ‘Get Over Yourself’. ..we need to mature into a level of self-awareness—self-management—self-accountability. You become a high-functioning individual …who returns to the human tribe with a sense of community, as you affect all others in what you do.  ‘What I do affects the whole.’  That is the new Theology. …My personal spiritual ecology is part of the ecological system of the Earth itself.  …That is the NEW Theology.  …What I do is then done to the whole.  Narcissism is the state of awakening to your own power, or NOT.  …See through the illusion of personal importance…. Healing occurs when you see beyond taking things personally.  The Universe is not personal.  It is archetypal.  I can choose to be detached from the personal and work instead with mystical truths. …

“Narcissists delude themselves into thinking that they can control the entirety around them.  They try to do that very thing.” …

“You’ve been given a life and a task and one of those tasks is to become fully you… and you have to trust ‘that journey of becoming fully you’ is what you were meant to do. But at the same time, that does NOT make you ‘special’—you are simply one of many journeying in their own ways—but we are always journeying together. You aren’t here by yourself. ..The spiritual path is about Truth—about you discovering what is REAL—and you are able to manage yourself and your power without compromising it by your shadow and your EGO-focus.  …The Spiritual path is about courage.  It’s not about your personal accomplishment—it is about finding your inner truth and then recognizing it as such. …”   ~Caroline Myss.

[In truth I did not intend to type so much of what she said during her presentation, but I soon realized that with only an hour left of FREE viewing, no one would be able to catch her talk without paying to hear it.  So I transcribed most of it here because it is extremely pertinent and powerful.  At least in this way you could actually catch it.]

 

Lee Harris on the November Energies

leeharrisportraitheadshot.jpg

After listening to this video I feel practically prescient with my article October 21st on “When Things Go Wrong,” talking about the collective energies that we are currently experiencing.  🙂

From how awful the current energies are, to our need to stay alert and pay better attention to what is happening to and around us; even to the necessity to simply be a better listener and be less prone to automatically “react” to everything that we see and hear.

Anyway, I nodded my way through most of his video and I think it’s worth a listen.

[ And what works for me as a re-focuser is during stressful situations, or when I’m feeling extremely agitated or have those uncomfortable, naturally-reactive emotions, is to simply sit down, take a few very deep breaths, close my eyes and say aloud, “I release the energies of __________ (fear, anxiety, sadness, anger, jealousy, pain, etc.—whatever you might be feeling at the time).  I release them completely now.  They do not serve me.”  And then forcefully blow those nasty thoughts and emotional energies out of your mouth at least 3 times.  Then just sit quietly for a few minutes with your eyes closed and see if your attitude has shifted higher. (Meaning: Do you now feel more relaxed and at peace?)   If it didn’t help shift your attitude or your energies, then do it all again—1st the release statements, then 3 breaths blowing out forcefully, and then taking a calm full breath again to relax your body and sitting quietly for a few minutes to see if you notice a change. ]

 Lee’s November video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkfRTrX_IDo&feature=youtu.be

“The main themes for November are: leeharrisnovemberenergy.jpg

  • CRAZY GETTING CRAZIER
  • IDENTITY SHIFT
  • THE POWER OF LISTENING

 

–CRAZY GETTING CRAZIER. When I was tuning in a couple of days ago about November and beyond, this was one of the messages that I got. The ‘crazy’ in the outside world is getting ‘crazier’ – so if you’re able to constantly reconcile your own feelings and thoughts and separate what’s yours from the crowds – you will be able to stay more balanced, more centered and more able to be part of what is needed during these times.

— IDENTITY SHIFT. Apparently, a lot of us are going through that Identity Shift right now. It’s going to get stronger and louder than ever in November and continue for a good three to six month period. Some of you will be entering into this big Identity Shift now and it relates to your personal power (as I mentioned in the October Energy Update). Those of you that own your power or are taking on your power are about to go through an Identity Shift. That might just look like changes but it can also look like huge upgrades.

–Last but not least on the POWER OF LISTENING. When we’re able to really listen to others in a deep way, we may notice that someone’s words might be saying one thing but their tone and their energy might be saying something completely different. All of us can reach that place where we are feeling a little off or a little off center. The power of listening to others and the power of listening to ourselves is very important. So, do regular check-ins and deeply listen to your answers.

Have a beautiful month everyone!  Big love X  – Lee Harris

Deepak on the META HUMAN

metahumanbkchopra.jpg

This interview came through this morning on Deepak’s Facebook site pertaining to his latest book called META HUMAN.  I listened to it and wished there were a transcript to put on my blog (so I typed as I listened) because it’s about my favorite subjects—the nature of reality and the nature of consciousness. Amazingly he was fairly clear here in his descriptions but didn’t go into details on how you become that META HUMAN, which I would assume he covers in his book and is likely the result of direct-connecting into Source Consciousness (through meditation, etc.) and keeping that cleared channel open to create your new ‘reality’ experience.

“META HUMAN – DIRECTED BY Kabinett  

In a conversation with celebrated Yoga Teacher, Eddie Stern, internationally acclaimed spiritual teacher, Deepak Chopra, describes the concept behind the title of his latest book, Meta Human. In this exclusive video, we hear directly from the author on what constitutes biologically informed human behavior — or what he refers to as “a bundle of conditioned reflexes” — and how we can reach ‘beyond’ that. The ‘perceptual band’ of humanity is what informs what we call ‘reality’, so how can expanding consciousness increase our perceptual bandwidth?

https://www.wearekabinett.com/p/kabinett/MTIwMzk2MTUw_MTI4OTcyNjMyNQ==?fbclid=IwAR3N3u3BAwCuz8Q706b5ws2voTl4r2FYPFoZlgzfq8iyeGlHFUjzAYXm6FA

“What is the META HUMAN? …  (Deepak Chopra speaking) choprapicface567.jpg

“So the word META means beyond. That’s all it means. Meta-physics is beyond physics. …It’s a branch of philosophy. And META HUMAN is going beyond what we usually see as human behavior. …

“(:47) But by and large, human behavior is robotic. We are like biological robots. Constantly being triggered by people and circumstances to predictable outcomes. …Like a bundle of conditioned reflexes.  And so not only do we have the same reaction over and over again, sankrit sanskara determine these actions or these are habits that create what we call the conditioned mind.

And the conditioned mind then projects the experience that we call the body and the universe.  So the world that you are experiencing right now, or that anyone is experiencing …is actually a world that is projected by the conditioning of consciousness as THIS, that we call ‘the physical world’.

So META means going beyond that.  Actually META is disruptive. You are no longer that bundle of conditioned responses and nerves. You have access to …DIRECT access to insight, to intuition, to inspiration, to creativity, to the power of intention.  You are not rigidly attached to your point of view.  You start to lose you habitual certainty that prevents you from knowing who you really are. …

rainbowconsciousnesspeople54.jpg

“( 2:48) … What we call everyday reality is the interpretation of a very narrow band of perceptual activity. We call it the WORLD. …We call it REALITY. But what it is, is an interpretation of our perceptual activity which in the human species, or any species, is a very narrow band of a species-specific perceptual activity which is actually an excitation of consciousness. Ok? 

So your experience of the body is the same, …is created in the same way you experience the world. So when you shift to META HUMAN everything changes, because reality is different in different states of consciousness. The physical body is different in different states of consciousness. The mind is different in different states of consciousness.  Perception is different in different states of consciousness. Knowledge is different in different states of consciousness.”

2 Reviews on the book (AMAZON.com)

Metahuman is a wonderful explanation—and exploration—of the very highest and ultimate potentials that human beings possess, known around the world as Enlightenment, Awakening, the Great Liberation. What is not generally known is the secret revealed at the very heart of the great wisdom traditions—namely, that you already possess this ultimate potential; it is fully and totally present in you, right here and right now. All you have to do is recognize this ever‑present reality. If you would like to know exactly how to do this, Metahuman is a terrific place to begin!” —Ken Wilber, The Integral Vision and The Religion of Tomorrow

“We might suppose that the vastness of space-time, with its myriad stars and planets, comprises the preexisting stage for a ceaseless drama of life in which we are bit players. In Metahuman, Deepak Chopra persuasively invites us to turn this supposition on its head. We are the authors of space-time; we can wake up to our impressive stagecraft and embrace our true role.” —Donald Hoffman, Professor of Cognitive Sciences, University of California, Irvine, author of The Case against Reality

The Highest Form of Intelligence

I’ve mentioned previously that I have a deep respect for Jiddu Krishnamurti (of Theosophical Society affiliation).  So when I saw the image below with the quote “The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.” I had the buddhakrishnamurtiquote654.jpgreaction that not judging or evaluating all that is going on around the world at present, means that I certainly don’t have to worry about attaining that ‘higher-intelligence’ level.

Then the more I reviewed online Krishnamurti’s life work, I quickly realized how ludicrous putting an image of Buddha is along with one of his quotes.

He was very anti-religion because blindly following set beliefs often prevents one from finding TRUTH for oneself.

 

I maintain that truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or coerce people along a particular path.

This is no magnificent deed, because I do not want followers, and I mean this. The moment you follow someone you cease to follow Truth. I am not concerned whether you pay attention to what I say or not. I want to do a certain thing in the world and I am going to do it with unwavering concentration. I am concerning myself with only one essential thing: to set man free. I desire to free him from all cages, from all fears, and not to found religions, new sects, nor to establish new theories and new philosophies.[63] “  (J. Krishnamurti – Wikipedia)

krishnamurtiqu325 (2).jpg

He very much believed in self-realization—direct-connecting into the greater consciousness beyond this life and knowing TRUTH first hand from that direct access.

krishnamurtiqu512 (1).jpg

Try TRUTH for yourself.  It’s a refreshing change from our daily environment.

 

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.

https://bto19.s3.amazonaws.com/replay/Paul_Selig_replay.mp3

***

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.

 

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
