Nature, Is it Nice?

DSCF0563

Nature in its sheer, raw, primal power doesn’t seem “nice” (at least from our “human” standpoint) and will chew us up and spit us out…if we were to not take care of ourselves and each other…and it could do so anyway, regardless of all the care and planning we might take to survive and be in balance here on Earth.

It seems that in the frequency range of our human consciousness, I know that I like to (and perhaps most of us like to) anthropomorphize Nature, to relate to and give this powerful force human attributes. Thus, Mother Earth, Divine Mother, Heavenly Father, etc..etc.

And Nature/Spirit/God seems to show up for us in the forms that best suits our temperament. At least that is how it has been for me.

Otherwise, it can get too overwhelming when faced with such suffering, of our own or of the collective. To me it sometimes seems that Nature can be painfully impersonal, especially when dealing with intense physical or emotional pain.

In the realm of my own humanity, where I can feel love, bliss, sadness, pain, etc., It gives me great comfort to be able to relate to Nature from my own humanness, regardless of how much suffering can occur in Nature and how “inhuman” and even “cruel” Nature might seem to be.

However, I don’t think Nature is outside the bandwidth of our humanness. We love, hate, feel sadness, bliss…because it is in our “Nature” to do so…and from this perspective Nature can seem to be incredibly personal…and also very much like a great story that gives meaning to our world.

Does our story of Nature help us grow spiritually, or is it cause for contraction?

The Law of Attraction – the Main Ingredient

DSCF0579

Someone asked me what I thought of the “Law of Attraction.”

It’s a funny thing… my wife playfully calls me “The Attractor.” I call her “The Activator.” Together we’ve created a beautiful life for ourselves.

As the “Attractor” it seems I’ve been able to bring into our lives certain opportunities,  people and circumstances that would change our lives forever! However, without my wife’s activating, moving forward energy, of myself there would have been a higher possibility of losing opportunities through not acting fast enough.

So…I believe the Law of Attraction requires a lot of action…moving forward on opportunities…BEFORE WE FEEL READY!

Acting before we feel ready is huge! However, with this mindset, we learn very quickly as we move forward.

In a nutshell: implement, adjust, implement, adjust, implement….It’s the mindset of, “The bridge over the chasm of uncertainty gets created as we step out in faith.”

In another way: “on course, off course… By moving/acting we get a sense of when we’re on course or off course…and we make adjustments.

Also, it requires getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. This is also a big one! Learning to attract is not so difficult. It’s the follow-through and manifesting part that can be challenging.

In most Law of Attraction systems that I’ve read about, I believe it covers the action part, but I believe there is a part that is not covered so well…

How to instill new habits of thinking/feeling/acting. In learning to attract and create what we want, it is important to be aware of the habits that hold us back, that sabotage our best intentions. This is where habitual mindsets/beliefs, etc. are required to be deeply explored and, if necessary, released…and then new habits installed.

Also…I believe the “attracting” piece has many layers. For me there is the part of just being very clear on what we want, financially, emotionally, etc., etc.

There is then the layer of “holding” it energetically in our bodies, not just in our minds. For me this means connecting with the Bliss Resonance in the body/spine and connecting that energy/sensation with what is wanted.

And then a deeper layer is in looking/observing what is calling our attention in our environment. In other words, being open to signs, synchronicities, etc.

For example, right before a huge spiritual transition happened in my life, I came across crow feathers everyday for about 15 days in a row. This got my attention and I just had to pay attention to some of the very subtle cues that would ultimately lead my wife and I to a life-changing opportunity.

This is still ongoing learning for myself and so these words are for me too!

Third Eye Opening Symptoms

img_0501

When entering the visionary state (third eye opening), a very wide range of dimensions/realms become available to our awareness, some that are beatific beyond imagination, along with demonically horrid ones as well.

In the beginning, when entering those realms, we do not necessarily know how to navigate those worlds. Dark, negative entities can be quite intrusive and “in your face” so-to-speak. Our “toolbox” of spiritual techniques that we’ve gathered in our daily, 3d lives, help us to a certain degree when entering the visionary state, but cannot prepare us fully for the actual entry into those realms.

There have been times when I’ve been totally freaked out by the hideous places and beings that intruded into my consciousness. It seems to me that in order to ascend to the higher states of Being/Awareness, one must also pass through a kind of “Dark night of the Soul” realm of utter darkness, horror, etc.

As much as I’ve made intention to go straight to the light/love/higher vibration, it seems that I still had to go through the darker realms…as though it was a kind of “rite of passage.”

Note: Most of the demons/entities do not have so much power. All it takes is to keep the attention at the spiritual eye/light. However, there are certain very powerful demons/entities that seem to have the power to extract our memory of calling for the help of our Higher Self, Angelic Guides, Spirit, etc. This is where Grace comes in.

Our Spirit protectors come to our aid when we have lost ourselves to these very powerful entities. Having the experience of this level of Grace gives us a depth of gratitude for the gifts of love that we have been given in our lives. To experience the dimension of utter darkness and horror…and then to realize the gift and light of love that are embedded in our Beings brings such a depth of gratitude that I don’t think I could have realized/felt in any other way!

Meditation is not the problem! Opening the Spiritual Eye/third eye is not the problem! I do understand though, how one might construe the practice of meditation and the opening of the third eye as the cause of such horrific experiences and visions.

To me, it would be such a sad loss of spiritual opportunity to shut down the spiritual eye out of fear of the darker realms. But again, I do understand why one would want to do so. There is a kind of security in the “bandwidth” of our familiar human dimension. The realms that open up through the spiritual eye are unfamiliar and in the beginning we just do not know of to navigate through the darker realms.

Just a little bit of experience in these unfamiliar dimensions is all that is necessary to move past these unwanted intrusions. Learning seems to happen quickly, to not dally or focus upon the dark.

Again, in the higher realms, the intrusions cease. Spiders, demons, scenes of torture, getting jumped on and tortured, etc….these seem to be last gasp efforts of the satanic forces to keep us from entering the higher realms, which is SOOO close when the spiritual eye is opened.

In the higher realms, the actual Divine Christ Light/Consciousness, the Divine Mother/Father is infinitely and sublimely beyond what we can ever imagine when in the density of our rational, human, egoic consciousness!

Spirit Guides, Animal Totems – Are They Real?

img_0025

Spirit guides, Animal Totems, I think they’re all imaginary, but that’s not to say that the objects of the imagination are not “real.” They’re just vibrating at different frequencies, perhaps not within the “bandwidth” that our bodies reside in nor within the range of our normal waking state.

In this way of thinking, all thoughts and objects of our imagination can be thought of as “real” from an energetic perspective. I guess the important consideration is whether or not they have the power and consciousness to uplift and help us…I certainly know from my own experience that certain thoughts have the power to hurt/harm.

For example, if I relive a memory of a past hurt, be it physical or emotional, I can feel the unpleasantness and hurt in my body and emotions as long as I hold onto the memories. It makes sense to not hold onto such memories. However, it’s not so easy to tell myself, “Stop the memories! Stop thinking about what happened years ago!”

Also, perhaps you know how trauma can get so embedded in the body and psyche they seem to assume a life of their own in the body/mind…long after the initial traumatizing event!

Back to the question, “Are Spirit Guides and Animal Totems real?” To me the question is a little “off-mark” because it can get as messy and convoluted as the question, “What is Truth?” …which to me is not as interesting as, “What is true to me…and what is true to you?”Or, in another way, “What is real to me…and what is real to you?

We can bring in the words of science and/or the words of scripture to support or even be the gatekeepers for what we believe to be true and real for us…but I think, for me, it comes down to the question, “Is it real for me?” In the sense of “Does it uplift/help, or hurt/harm?”

Are Spirit Guides and Animal Totems/Spirits real to me? Have they helped me? Yes and yes! But I suppose their “realness” may not be as important so long as I feel guided and protected by their presence in my life.

If there ever comes a time when I no longer feel their help and presence in my life, then I can imagine that their “realness” to me will also fade away.

How to Make “Oversensitivity” Work for You

img_0024

Someone asked recently, “How do you make your sensitivity work for you? When I think/feel into my own sensitivity, the first thing that comes to mind is “oversensitivity,” to my trigger points, to when things catch me “off-guard” so-to-speak.

Like most everyone else (I’m presuming), it is very difficult for me to not react to my emotional triggers. So…how to make my sensitivity work for me when I get triggered becomes an important question.

My initial reaction to emotional triggers in the past would put me into a shell, into moods for hours, if not days. I would feel angry, hurt, get moody/broody, etc.

Here’s what I do now: I do not discount what I feel, or try to push it away, or get philosophical about it…in fact I allow myself an initial inner reaction, like, “#$#L$ M_F!!…for a few minutes…but then I also include “Thank You, thank you, thank you!” even though I don’t feel genuine gratitude at the moment…but I know the gratitude does and will come.

Here’s what I do: I always keep a blank sheet journal with me with a supply of pens and color pencils. I also have my music.

I CREATE, CREATE, CREATE! DANCE, DANCE, DANCE! If need be, CRY, CRY, CRY!
I know that very delicate thoughts, sensations, insights come to me after I purge out the energy of what triggered me! Exquisitely sublime feelings!

That is where Gratitude comes in…and after a large purge, the sensation of Gratitude feels like…LOVE!

Dance of Well Being, Part 2

IMG_0023

Focusing the mind upon subtle body sensations can be a way of quieting the mind, an easy way of focusing the attention. When placing the mind upon the overall resonance of sensations, the feelings can be resolved into a kind of “ball of vibration” that can be squeezed, pushed and pulled through the body, that effortlessly attracts the attention and focuses the mind.

This is experienced as a delicate dance of exquisite sensations balanced upon the pinpoint of the mind’s attention.

What holds the attention? Bliss…

What is meant by the “ball of vibration?” It is the sum total, the overall resonance of all that is felt in the moment. Sensations include all vibrations coming in through the physical senses and may include smells, tastes, sounds, sights, etc.

The main ingredient here is in connecting with the underlying sensation that has a “feel good” aspect and that imparts a feeling of well being. This particular vibratory “ingredient” is the secret sauce without which the above is just another technique that cannot take you very deep.

The very feeling/sensation of well being, of bliss, is the prompt that can take you to deepest levels of the awareness of Being!

Dance of Well Being

IMG_0020

Repetitive movement, such as while walking, dancing, or running, creates an ongoing flow of sensations that can be felt even when the movement has been stopped. The vibrations continue on, reverberating, echoing through the body and can be tracked or sensed to extremely subtle depths.

Similarly, the sensations of laughter, giggles and smiles can be felt to finer and finer levels of subtlety.

What can you do with this sensitivity? Well, explore for yourself. The waves of sensations that play upon the sheerest fabric of your awareness is a most luxurious, ecstatic experience!

But do not take my word for it. Again, explore for yourself. Follow sensations to the finest balance point of awareness. Follow the prompts of the sensations as they move wave-like and pulse-like through the body in finer and finer vibrations.

As you continue to listen and to feel deeper and deeper into sensation, surrender happens when you allow the body to move/dance, first in micro-movements…and then in contortions that result from the buildup of subtle ecstatic energies that flow in the cavernous depths just below all vibrations.

For example, when listening to music that activates within you the desire to dance, as you feel into the sensations moving through the body, the feelings can be a kind of twisting, spiraling, contorting of the body that seems to squeeze the feel good juices as though through every cell of the body.

The feeling this imparts is one of extreme well being, pleasure, of being in love, of being inspired to play, dance, draw, sing…to just enjoy being, to enjoy the simple act of breathing!
