Perceiving the World as REAL

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

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

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

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

“…The Light Body

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

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

… The Neuroscience of Enlightenment

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

2018 Jan 30 —THE NEUROSCIENCE OF ENLIGHTENMENT

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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.

“Ultimate Manifestation”

What on earth is Ultimate Manifestation?

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

Here’s the description:

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

 

The Higher Vibrational Match

“When there’s a vibrational match between your energy and that potential that exists in drjoehighervibrational matchthe quantum field, like tuning a radio dial, when you lock into that frequency, and if you keep revisiting that energetic signature every single day, then you don’t have to go anywhere and get it, the new job, house, or relationship finds you, because you are the vortex that’s drawing the experience to you. The universe only gives us what we think we are willing to receive.”  Dr. Joe Dispenza

 

Okay, let’s talk vibrations: Resonance, harmony, sympathetic vibrations, ….even though these concepts are related to SOUND and hearing, we also know these things at a kinesthetic level because we can FEEL them. Likewise with dissonance, disharmony, and cacophony.

Example?  Ever sit at a stoplight and a tricked-out set of wheels with radio blaring pulls alongside you with the bass vibes pounding so loud out of that car and penetrating into yours, that it makes your teeth hurt?  Yeah, it’s like that. That’s an extreme kinesthetic level of sound vibration.

With those vibrational sound waves that you’re experiencing from the overly loud music beside you, the bass vibe is so pronounced that it literally moves the air molecules in the vicinity and resonates with the metals near it. Were the tones instead in the opposite direction and focused with the same intensity on high treble notes, it might shatter crystal.soundenergyvibrat.jpg

So in terms of vibration, sound waves are something we can easily relate to—we all have numerous examples for how sound waves affect us.  Lightwaves are frequency vibrations and are similar in some respects and yet quite different in others.

Awhile back I gave a lengthy explanation of the Electromagnetic Lightwave Spectrum and how our basic human seeing abilities are limited to the visual lightwave frequency range (which we comprehend as colors from red to ultra-violet/white light … March 9, 2019—“The TRUTH of Perception”).

hawkins levels of consciousness scaleWell, this is hard to explain in a sense, but the world around us including ourselves existing in that world, are simply variable forms of frequency vibration: We are combos of sound and lightwaves with the upper extremes of those lightwaves being states of consciousness, with SOURCE (God) itself considered as the highest knowable lightwave frequency and from which all else is created.

So when Dr. Joe is talking about your “vibrational energy match” he is saying in a sense that to create the life you desire or to people your environment with loving friends, etc., you have to hold the energies of what you truly want in your life to ATTRACT those other energies to you.vibefreqcoloredhuman.jpg

You want loving friends, then hold that “I AM LOVE energy” at all waking hours because the energy that you hold is what is attracted back to you like a magnet pulls metal shavings to it.

The quantum field or SOURCE, is the ocean of all possibilities (all frequencies) from which individual waves flows. Each of the waves could be considered slightly different dimensions of frequency, so each wave is slightly different than the others in numerous immeasurable and presently inconceivable qualities.

We, as tiny human components, are more like individual droplets of water in that vast ocean with our personal energetic borders determined by the surface tension of the surrounding energy container that encapsulates us. That containment capsule holds our specific energy frequency, and we ride the wave of frequency that most matches our capsule of energy containment.

That encapsulating energy of containment that we know as our individual “energy field,” is what Dr. Joe is referring to when he says to raise your personal frequency (vibration) to match the higher frequencies to attract what you want to you.  If you want more love frequencies in your life, then you have to BE IT (hold love frequency) to GET IT.

In music it would be called matching tonal resonance or creatingviolinharmonyvibe a sympathetic vibration from the bowed strings of one stringed instrument to another. Sympathetic vibrations are when the strings of two different stringed instruments vibrate together at the same time when only one is played.

My above explanation more thoroughly explains most of his quote, except for the last statement which is repeated cryptically in the graphic.

“When there’s a vibrational match between your energy and that potential that exists in the quantum field, like tuning a radio dial, when you lock into that frequency, and if you keep revisiting that energetic signature every single day, then you don’t have to go anywhere and get it, the new job, house, or relationship finds you, because you are the vortex that’s drawing the experience to you. The universe only gives us what we think we are willing to receive.”  Dr. Joe Dispenza

I want to comment further on those two statements separate from his main paragraph:  “The universe only gives us what we think we are willing to receive.”

Or as the graphic states: “The universe only gives us what we think we’re worthy of receiving.”

Are they the same thing? What we think we are willing to receive, and what we think we are worthy of receiving?

quoteworthinessbrenb.jpg

Maybe or maybe not.   And actually I’m not sure what he said is exactly what he meant to say, because in one sense, he’s right about either statement, but in another, willingness and worthiness are not easily determined even by the most self-aware individual without considerable time and reflection, and likely some intense therapy.

So don’t get hung up on either of those two statements.

Are we all deserving of love and happiness?     You bet we are—all of us!

Are we all worthy of being loved and being happy?  Of course we are.  Only deeply-buried childhood issues might tell us otherwise, but those simply need to be addressed and released.

Are we all willing to receive the best that life has to offer?

Well, now that one is truly up to you, but if you have a chance to live a loving and happy life, why not take that chance?

I believe it’s worth it.

Watching History Burn

Like many others, I was transfixed watching flames consume Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.notredamefire45.jpg

Unlike many others, I was sitting there not so much in tearful grief at the enormous loss, but simply pondering a greater significance—wondering if this was some transformative metaphor for the masses, of an iconic religious structure whose ancient dry timbers were igniting to signify the destruction of the old ways of viewing cultural religious icons to make room for newer spiritual/cultural beliefs.

For certain I do not wish to condemn any faith or belittle the beliefs of others, but back when that cathedral was first designed and construction had begun in 1160 then largely completed by 1260, the intention behind the religious structure was far more than simply worshipping a deity and set of beliefs in a particular way. There was a lot of engineering genius and human grandiosity designed into that structure, especially for that time period in history. And I’m sure it will be rebuilt to closely match the original designs. I have no doubt that it will rise again as the Parisian icon that it truly is. There should be no worries to the contrary.

beforefireapr2019notredame78.JPGBut I want to reconsider WHY that iconic cathedral was created in the first place.

Back in 1160, the 1st set of Holy Crusades had ended and the 2nd set of Holy Crusades were underway (and I use the term HOLY only in the recognition that this warfare was sanctioned by the European Kings of the land and the Popes of that time period who governed the common people using their papal religious authority as reasoning for killing all who were not Christian, and reacquiring land that had previously fallen to those who were not Christian.) Lots of unholy deeds were done under the jurisdiction of and sanctioned by the Roman Catholic Church through the ages.

So back in 1160, this massive French cathedral was built to honor God, Jesus and The Virgin Mary in one sense, but also to honor the hubris of men of power during that time, who believed that one religion was superior to others and this cathedral should signify it northrosewindowndc56.jpgby its sheer structural magnificence—the grander, the taller, the more beautiful and amazing, the better.

This religious structure was so significant that the French King and Pope of the time were even in attendance at the foundation setting.

“The chronicler Jean de Saint-Victor [fr] recorded in the Memoriale Historiarum that the construction of Notre-Dame began between 24 March and 25 April 1163 with the laying of the cornerstone in the presence of King Louis VII and Pope Alexander III.[17][18] Four phases of construction took place under bishops Maurice de Sully and Eudes de Sully”  (Wikipedia)

So there are a lot of reasons why Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is historically and spiritually significant.

But in terms of true religiosity, here is another quote from Wikipedia:

“French census data does not contain information about religious affiliation.[168] According to a 2011 survey by IFOP, a French public opinion research organization, 61 percent of residents of the Paris Region (Île-de-France) identified themselves as Roman Catholic, though just 15 percent said they were practicing Catholics, while 46 percent were non-practicing. In the same survey, 7 percent of residents identified themselves as Muslims, 4 percent as Protestants, 2 percent as Jewish, and 25 percent as without religion. [169]

insidenotredamecath345.jpgSo the current significance of the Notre Dame Cathedral is now more cultural and iconic (rather than religious), especially as a well-known Parisian landmark with amazing architectural consequence.  It represents many things to many people, and it should be and WILL BE rebuilt.

But please recognize it for what it truly is in its historical significance as French Gothic architecture rather than the symbol of present day Catholicism.

A lot of folks had deep feelings of loss over the structure fire. In fact while watching it, even to me it felt like a part of our western history was burning to the ground before our eyes. But more than that, to some it felt like the symbolic heart of the Roman Catholic Church was being Divinely purified from within.

And to those who felt this was an amazing Divine Cleansing of original corrupt patriarchal/papal intentions and deceitful practices in the name of religious belief, it was truly quite the sight.

 

 

The VERB

seemtobeaverb45

“I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process – an integral function of the universe.” – R. Buckminster Fuller – I Seem to Be a Verb

 

I’ve been a R. Buckminster Fuller fan since college. One of my art professors was a huge “Bucky” fan and brought the entire spectrum of Fuller’s genius to our budding awareness.

In class we made mock-up, walk-in domes and read many of his books.  I Seem to Be a Verb was even required reading for our Art Aesthetics class. It was my first realization of Fuller’s intellectual scope and cultural affectation at the height of his career fame.fulleranddome55

After all these years, and long after his death in 1983, I’m still a fan.  He is one of my all-time heroes for many reasons.

 

Another great quote, was the “trim-tab” comment:

Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Mary — the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there’s a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trimtab. boat

It’s a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trimtab. Society thinks it’s going right by you, that it’s left you altogether. But if you’re doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go.

So I said, call me Trimtab.”

In fact, there are so many excellent Bucky Fuller quotes, I’ll just list a few for this post.

“You cannot change how someone thinks, but you can give them a tool to use which will lead them to think differently.”   Buckminster Fullerdont changebyfighting it34.png

 

“You do not belong to you. You belong to the universe. The significance of you will remain forever obscure to you, but you may assume you are fulfilling your significance if you apply yourself to converting all you experience to highest advantage to others. Make the world work, for 100% of humanity, in the shortest possible time, through spontaneous cooperation, without ecological offense or the disadvantage of anyone.”   Buckminster Fuller

fullerbanner554

“We are not going to be able to operate our Spaceship Earth successfully nor for much longer unless we see it as a whole spaceship and our fate as common. It has to be everybody or nobody.   Buckminster Fuller

“Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren’t any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn’t be here in the first place. buckytombstone trimtab.jpgAnd never forget, no matter how overwhelming life’s challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person.”   Buckminster Fuller

 

“Quite clearly, our task is predominantly metaphysical, for it is how to get all of humanity to educate itself swiftly enough to generate spontaneous social behaviors that will avoid extinction.”  Buckminster Fuller

“We are now synergetically forcedcomprehensive-design-science-55-728.jpg to conclude that all phenomena are metaphysical; wherefore, as many have long suspected — like it or not — “life is but a dream.”    Buckminster Fuller

 

And if you are really into a challenge, read Fuller’s two tomes on Synergetics: Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking (Vol. 1 & 2).

His overall theory is that LIFE is proven to be well-designed. but by whom and for whom, he doesn’t say.

 

The Act of Living

Living is a process:  Every day a new creation—every moment a choice.

I once thought I could help guide others to find their true purpose in life.  Not that I whatlifepurpose67.jpgwould tell them what that purpose was, only that I could help them to determine that purpose for themselves.

I no longer think that way.

Life, in all its eccentricities and peculiarities, is to be unfettered to some degree— solely sampled by the one living it.

True, there have been others, particularly the words of others found in legacy-holders called “books” that have helped me better understand my sensings on LIFE—my perception of LIFE as it affects me and I in turn, affect it.

But it is only the accumulation of years and personal experiences that have truly helped me understand LIFE not as the interactive environment that I occupy for my brief moment in time, but that LIFE is this enormous vat of fermenting fruit we all add to and drink from.

elenorrooseveltpurposelife.jpgLIFE is our intoxicant. It is our hallucinogen. It is our sustenance that sustains, inspires, and fulfills us during our stay in this plane of existence.

We don’t just imbibe LIFE—we are immersed in it.  We absorb it through every pore, and spew it from us in every way and in every direction.

LIFE oozes from our very essence here. We even generate LIFE.

LIFE is US, and WE are LIFE.  But we are merely a fractional part of the process called “LIFE”.

So when others tell me that they “are tired of living,” I look at them not with sadness or judgment of any kind.

I simply ask them “Tired of living WHAT?—What is it you are living?—What role are you playing that makes you so tired?”  Because LIFE is a process—and it will continue long after we are dust because it started long before any of us arrived.

For those who do tire, I comprehend that we sometimes feel weariness with the process called LIFE.

I can easily understand the exhaustion of continual pain.

As I can also understand severe disappointment or dashed hopes or the momentary inability to perceive a better future lying ahead, because these are feelings that we all have had at some point during our own process of living.

But LIFE itself is not the problem. The problem is in how we sample LIFE.

twain everyday beautiful33.jpg

So were I to give any advice to “the tired of living” it would be minimal, and it would include a suggestion for sampling LIFE in a different way—making a personal change—shifting a perspective—seeing what you haven’t before seen so that you realize you are not the holder of LIFE.

You only share in LIFE for the time that you are here, because LIFE is a continuing process.

Just as you are.
