Love’s Vibration – Dissolving the Dream

It is getting clearer and clearer that the work that is my joy to do in the world is in using sound, voice and movement as a way to connect with the heart. My part is in allowing Spirit to show up within the circle of sacred space and allow the Mother to do Her work. Dear Higher Self, please advise.

The Mother lives within you. This is getting more and more evident as you continue working with sound and movement.

Dear Mother, it is all You within!

Yes! Feel me moving through your arms and legs, in every breath you take. You are feeling me on a physical level as never before experienced. With each breath you are now feeling my presence, my bliss moving in your lungs. Isn’t it wonderful to be together in such intimacy? I enjoy being in your body, and it has only been through your invitation and openness that I have been able to enter you. We can now forever dance together. Even others in your group are noticing a difference in you as they allow an opening in their own hearts. Isn’t it all so very delicious?

Yes, at times I cannot contain my joy and gratitude! Sometimes it takes all my strength to not dance and sing whilst in a public place. The body wishes at times to express your love through movement and song!

I understand this delightful dilemma. The energy is moving deeper into your cells, allowing your body to be bathed in Love.

Yes, every breath then becomes blissful!

Bliss energy permeates all things and goes both outwardly and inwardly in infinite directions, through movement as well as through utter stillness. You are learning to navigate both worlds while remaining present to the moment. What you may now consider to be disturbances or distractions to this awareness will soon be absorbed by the all-powerful resonance of your growing bliss. Like an ocean, it receives into its depths all storms of desires and dreams. The vibration of Bliss is Love’s power to embrace and transform all desires. Love then feeds upon all things that you once thought to be distractions. Like kindling, they fuel the fires of Bliss.

In this experience there is no circumstance in life that has the power to pull you away from your rightful place in Love. Feelings of helplessness fall away from your memory as Love’s vibration becomes fully enthroned in consciousness. The dream of separation and limitation has ended. All things are a pulsation of Divine Love!

Love is now experienced as a vibration, a resonance that contains all things and fills all things. It is all Bliss. Nothing is outside of it. Desire, joy, pain, all things are food for its Divine Fire!

Why do I sometimes feel separated from the power of Bliss?

Bliss has created a universe to mask itself behind. It only appears frozen to you through your own acceptance of the dream as being the reality. Receive now, that it is all a vast dream, a condensation of bliss energy. It is all a mirage of separation, a sleep you can awaken from when you allow yourself to feel the heaving ocean of the Infinite Bliss that is just behind the feelings of every breath that you take.

Spirit has filtered itself through the body and senses, allowing the consciousness of ego separation to occur. The “you” of ego consciousness is a play of Spirit allowing itself to dream itself trapped in the body, caught behind the limited dimensions of time and space. However, through the increasing vibration of Bliss that is occurring in the world and in the body, a shift is taking place that is letting you experience and understand yourself as Spirit, playing and dancing in realms of form.

The vibration of Love is dissolving the dream of separation. Receive this! Celebrate this!

2012 Frequency Shift

There is a lot of talk and excitement around the topics of 2012, immanent disclosure of alien (off-world) connections, and the cosmic “frequency shift” that is to totally reconstruct our worldview and the way that we humans do things in the world.

From an astrological point of view, this year (2010) promises to give us a very “wild ride.” According to Laurie Baum, licensed Psychotherapist and Professional Astrologer:

“I write the 2010 forecast with awe and trepidation as there is more planetary activity in the heavens in 2010 than in any year in my 20-plus years as an astrologer, and perhaps more planetary activity than any of us have lived through in our lifetimes. This level of celestial action portends a period of great change here on Planet Earth.

Here are dates to remember for the “Cardinal Climax 2010”:

· January 17, 2010 – Jupiter enters Pisces
· January 31, 2010 – Saturn in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn
· April 26, 2010 – Saturn in Virgo opposes Uranus in Pisces
· May 22, 2010 – Jupiter in Pisces opposes Saturn in Virgo
· May 27, 2010 – Uranus enters Aries for the first time since 1935; Uranus was last in Aries from 1927 to 1935.
· June 5, 2010 – Jupiter enters Aries for the first time since 2000; Jupiter was last in Aries from early 1999 to early 2000.
· June 8, 2010 – Jupiter in Aries conjoins Uranus in Aries
· June 26, 2010 – Lunar Eclipse * Sun in Cancer – Moon in Capricorn
· July 11, 2010 – Solar Eclipse * Sun and Moon in Cancer
· July 24, 2010 – Jupiter in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn
· July 26, 2010 – Saturn in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries
· July 30, 2010 – Mars in Libra opposes Uranus in Aries

· March 28, 2011 – Jupiter in Aries opposes Saturn in Libra

(see http://lauriebaum.com/predictions.php for her thorough analysis)

It’s pretty obvious that there’s a lot going on, both internally and externally. When I consulted Higher Self, this is the response I received:

The veils between dimensions are getting thinner and thinner. Old and stagnant ways of thinking and doing are falling away while new systems are put into place. The dark mentalities can no longer keep the old world in place, although it seems the outdated and decrepit powers will not go without a fight (alas, their ways of control and subjugation will no longer work!).

Consult the Heart! Its voice speaks quite clearly and the connection is strong. Ride the waves of Love emanating from the ocean of your Infinite Being. It is a portal to the timeless dimensions.

The vibration felt there is like a doorway that can be passed through as you allow yourself to resonate with its song. It will move you to the deepest dimensions of Being. You are not limited! You are a field of Infinite Consciousness! Release yourself to the Divine Current! You are Love and Beauty unlimited by any constraint of time and dimension. Receive now!

The Divine is calling you to swim in the depths of full wakefulness, wherein you can experience the land of the Dreamtime, the in-between world of wakefulness and sleep. You are here to serve witness to the miracle of Love, the vibration that permeates all things and calls you to receive the gift of Infinite Bliss!

The connection to Higher Self, to the Mother-Father Unconditional Love is through the Child within. Your service in the world is to be the “invitation” for others to “come out and play.” Your role is to step fully into the consciousness of the Child Archetype where Love is fully manifest.

Feel the subtle vibrations of the heart. Listen to the song that plays within. It is joyful and moves like nectar through the body. It is lost in the busy-ness of the mind, when the attention gets caught up in the distracting fears of the worldly dream. However, you can learn to draw the attention back to the heart through the simple awareness of breath and sound.

Certain sounds vibrate the heart and can return the awareness back to its natural state of Love. All dimensions are open to you! Choose the ones that call to your sense of Beauty and Love. You are finding the way through your sensitivity to vibration and their infinite harmonics of Love. Move into the depths of bliss and the heights of Love through your attunement with these vibratory realms.

I understand there are still many lessons for me to learn involving life in the 3D world and “making a living.” The dissonance that I feel with old paradigms and with “corporate” life is getting wider. The irony is that the hypnosis of the world is such that it still requires money to survive here. Or does it?

As I get more and more clear about the gifts that I bring to the world, I can feel in my bones that my offerings have a place in the world and as such there can be an exchange of energy that occurs regarding success in life.

What shift in thinking is being asked of me at this time?

It is not so much a shift in thinking as it is a shift in Being. Step fully into your Being! You are powerful beyond imagination. When you realize and experience your powers, the question of mere survival drops from the radar screen of your consciousness. When you understand this, all life, all powers will support you in your highest dreams of freedom and success.

You still wake up each morning identifying with the self that has to take care of bills and business. The little self of the 3d world has commandeered your consciousness, causing you to believe in the illusions of limitation and lack. The Infinite Consciousness that you are knows no lack!

When you wake up to your inheritance of Infinite Consciousness, you will see your 3d existence as an interesting dream, a sidelight that you are waking up from. When this happens, the vibrations of the Infinite Dimensions will begin to “bleed through” into your 3d existence, affecting your circumstances there. All things will then improve for you.

The new awareness is happening now! Release any and all resistance. The dream of limitation and lack are ending. The story of that life is coming to an end, as if the ink from that life’s pen has dried up. Throw the pen away and receive the infinite song that sings of the One Life and One Consciousness of the Blissful Spirit that you are!

That Consciousness now moves freely through your body and mind. Enjoy the unfolding story of Self from the vantage point of omnipresent Love!

Your old story had much drama, adventure and heartache. Allow them to be released. Send them on their way with compassion, knowing that they served a purpose in helping you to learn the lessons of Love.

Enjoy now the Self of unlimited dimension, the Self of Infinite Beauty and Love! You are now Child of the Great Spirit!

The You that is experienced in the world of 3d is now part of the much wider existence and spectrum of the Divine. Observe and enjoy it for the dream that it is.

Music and chant have been doorways for you to the dimensions of Love and Beauty. We ask that you all share your gifts with one another. Through resonance with Beauty and Love you will then help others to vibrate and attune to their own unique gifts. Do you see how it works?

I would like to share with my readers a recording that was done at a vortex in 29 Palms, California. The recording is of myself and my good friend Rick Skalsky along with various crystal singing bowls, Tibetan metal singing bowls, etc. I hope you enjoy it!

Listening to the Voice of the Heart

Listening to the voice of the heart is about attuning ourselves to subtle vibrations and feelings, learning to listen not only with the ears but with our whole Being; with our bones, organs and every fiber. In this kind of listening lies the answer to prayers and the fulfillment of all of our intentions.

Answers and resources can appear from seemingly nowhere. The Universe doesn’t need to work in linear, logical ways. When you connect with intentions on an energetic level, then answers to prayers can appear from “out of the blue.” You must still do your part, but there really is no challenge that is insurmountable.

Your part is to remain in the openness and receptivity of the inner flow of energy and consciousness that is always connected with the Creative Source. This may mean sometimes having to take little steps without the assurance of knowing the details of the larger picture. Sometimes it may seem that you are only given pieces of a jigsaw puzzle without the benefit of knowing what the finished piece looks like. Trust in the wisdom of your heart that will let you know if you are on course or off-course when you learn to feel and listen to the vibration of its voice.

As you listen and feel on the inside, the consciousness becomes aware of the physical vibrations within and around you. As the mind and feelings grow calm, the awareness begins to apprehend more and more subtle vibrations of thoughts, feeling and movements of energy within the body. The inner sounds become more predominant and external noises may seem to meld with the internal ones. A sense of expansion occurs in which the feeling of bodily location is widened, as though the limbs have become very large, or have dissolved all together into the vastness of space.

In the Sacred Space wherein the mind and body are deeply relaxed, intrusive thoughts and the process of thinking have less opportunity to be entertained. There is no small place in the mind to let them revolve around in. They just come; and then they go. They are observed as though from a great distance, without attachment, without the usual emotional strings that keep us bouncing around like puppets on a marionettes’ stage.

In the vibration of your Heart’s Voice, the incessant chattering of mind falls away, allowing for the magnetic energy of Love to manifest and fulfill your intentions and prayers. In this sublime state, you can be in any company or crowd and send out the attracting vibration to embrace all people as beautiful souls. Those whose hearts are ready to receive will begin to resonate with and gravitate to you. When you become the frequency of Love, that vibration will change the hearts of those stuck in self-created darkness. In this way individuals learn to be a blessing to those around them without expectation of return or acknowledgment.

2009 and Messages from an Injured Shoulder

2009 seems to be building up to be a humdinger of a year! If one were to look only outwardly at the trainwreck of events as reported by the media, from the world economic crisis to the ongoing escalation of wars and violence, it would seem that 2009 augers a buildup of fear and thoughts of “how to survive the coming cataclysms.”

However, when looking upon all the chaos as the Universe’s way of destroying old and corrupt systems so as to make room for evolution to happen, then it becomes a matter of making choices as to how we want to live our lives: reacting to fear by “hunkering down,” or using the energy or excitement of fear to build momentum and awareness of the New Dimension of Consciousness that seems to be arising through the ashes of what is being torn down.

I don’t have a special “window” to the future, and I do know that pain and challenges are part of living on planet earth, and so my wife and I do our “due diligence” by keeping emergency supplies and some extra food and water…but we also know “in our bones” that our very purpose of existence is the simple awareness and act of “Being Love,” no matter how well or badly we may do from moment to moment. And there are times of course… when we get off course. It’s part of the drama that we’re learning to live with and not get so caught up in.

2009, for me, is not so much about “doing” as it is in “Being.” Both are important, but a little physical challenge that has shown up in my life in the last couple of months has won my attention and deep consideration. My left shoulder went out. Can’t use it. It happened right after an intense workshop that I participated in. Everything I do now has to be done slowly and with great awareness.

I’ve been seeing doctors but the healing may take awhile. My shoulder seems to be saying:

“Back off for awhile! Can you receive this and experience the opportunity that comes even with the pain? Listen and receive without grasping or fretting, without worrying about the future!”

The mind naturally thinks, “I need my shoulder to do my work and to be of service.” But of course the Higher Self is saying, “Just do your best and then relax in each moment, even if the moment is painful. Know that you are supported and guided even when it seems most dark and confusing.”

Unleashing the Beast of Creativity – Our Deepest Fear

When we allow the “Beast”– or energy of Creativity– to flow unimpeded through our bodies and mind, without mentally editing or judging what gets expressed, that energy seems to expand and gain momentum and power, revealing a Consciousness that is infinitely wider and more inclusive than the ego identity that we have become so familiar with.

I want to thank Jessica from “Living on Purpose” who made a comment in one of my posts regarding how we fear most our own power. This thought is also beautifully reflected in Marianne Williamson’s quote,

” Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us….”

Thanks Jessica, for your kind thoughts and encouragement. Yes, I too believe we fear most our own power. Is it, perhaps, that we are afraid of losing our sense of self if we were to unleash the subterranean “beast” of creativity, that we would not be able to put the “genie” back into the bottle once we uncorked the giant within?

I think it’s quite amazing how tenaciously the ego fights to maintain the illusion of separation and smallness, that it would actually struggle to keep itself locked in the nightmare! The ego is like the prisoner that prefers the dank air of narrow captivity over the inspiration of Freedom. And in its own self-imposed exile, it desperately grasps for life and security by fighting for the ephemeral dreams of happiness that everyone else struggles for. We enter and go through the motions of life in hypnotic stupor, identified with the glittering baubles of desires that remain ever beyond our reach, and that distracts us from the experience of our Higher Selves, the very Source of all dreams and desires!

My hat’s off to the Divine Trickster that’s been able to pull that huge “wooly” over the eyes of humanity for so long! But I also believe that the power of our hearts’ awakening is no less strong than the hypnotic grip of dark struggle.

As we awaken from the dream nightmare of limitation and fear, we connect with the River of Consciousness that manifests the unique gifts that we were meant to give birth to through the instrument of our lives. When we tune in to the Divine Song that is already playing within, when we allow that vibration to express in our lives, we are awakened from the slumber of ages!

The veils of separation are falling as we individually acknowledge and take responsibility for the gifts of Spirit that are wanting to be born. There are unimaginable realms of Beauty and Love that were meant to be expressed in our lives, and all that is required for that to happen is an understanding that the Creative River flows of itself the more we step aside and allow it Sacred Space within!

Surviving the Meltdown – Conspiracy of Time

Global catastrophes, economic meltdowns, health pandemics, World War III, etc., etc. are ominous threats that seem to loom just on the horizon, all adding to the dreaded fear that many people feel so very closely at this time. Surviving the meltdown is part of the zeitgeist of this particular era as we move closer to 2012 (as can be witnessed by the many websites and books that address this topic of survival). And yet there is also a feeling held by a growing number of individuals throughout the world that much of the upheaval is part of the birthing process of a New Consciousness, a frequency shift in our evolution as Co-Creators moving towards higher dimensions of Being.

The following post with Higher Self addresses the “Zeitgeist,” or spirit of the times. It also speaks of the dream nature of time itself.

Changes are happening quickly on the macro as well as the micro levels. Old belief systems that no longer serve you, both spiritual and secular, are crumbling–as they must–in order for the souls living during this time to progress beyond the hypnotic spell cast upon humanity asleep in the illusions of time and caught in the narrow dimensions of ego identity.

As fearful egos lost in the maelstrom of time, there seems to be no end to the ongoing nightmare of suffering, and yet a Great Awakening is upon the world as individuals begin to shake in resonance with the Divine Song that calls all souls to awaken to and remember their unique gifts of Love. Souls are casting aside as never before the shackles and straightjackets of narrow bigotry fostered through the generations by hearts corrupted by greed and soulless attachments to power and money.

Those who choose to remain asleep, who will not release attachments to the nightmare will remain in that realm of dark struggle until they are ready to move forward.

The you of worldly dimension lives in the realm where time is so powerful that it induces ways of thinking and acting in the world that is limiting and constraining. As you begin to live more and more naturally in the consciousness of Now, you will come to experience the world of time as just one dimension of your existence within the infinitely wider sphere of the Higher Self, beyond time and physical constraints.

Move and dance, write and draw; going from word to word, movement to movement, feeling to feeling without stopping the flow of awareness. As you lessen your desire to tightly control and mentally edit, the awareness will expand and merge into the vast backdrop of your True Nature. In this dimension of Being, there is no grappling or fighting with Self. It is all part of the larger “Dance of Creation.” It is all part of the Divine Song of the Cosmic River that flows effortlessly towards the Ocean of Freedom!

Enjoy and allow yourselves to remain in this state for as long as you wish. There is then no stopping the flow of what wishes to express. Stay in this place of deep wonderment and mystery, expanding and allowing the awareness to merge with the creative energy that swirls within and all around you.

No matter what you do in the world, the call of your Soul will ever beckon you to walk in alignment with your Authentic Self, which is a unique expression of the gifts you were born to express in Life.

The world of time exists in a consciousness that is fragmented and narrow. It supposes limitation and linear movement of energy and constraints of cause and effect. The body and consciousness appear to be confined solely to this plane of existence only when the awareness has bought completely into its illusion and attaches to it as being the only “reality.” When the Soul begins to awaken even a little, the consciousness begins to understand its Self within a wider spectrum of “realities” that include and yet is not limited by narrow constraints of time and space. It is then able to act and respond to certain “crises” in the worldly arena without succumbing to the fears and very “real” events that take place with regularity on the earthly plane.

There are so many levels to the worldly dream…the narrow identity to body and place in time is but a dream dimension that is ongoing and repetitive. Caught in the energy loop of the recurring nightmare of suffering, this is the entanglement that the billions of souls struggle with on this particular planet. And yet the entanglement is not a web made from steel. They are, rather, made from the gossamer strands of belief forms humankind has clung to through countless generations: “fight or be killed; win at all costs; amass a fortune to be happy; only the strong survive…” And the structures of fear built around these beliefs continue to condemn humanity to ones of violence and wars.

And yet, is there true safety in the world? The body will pass on sooner or later, as it must, in order for the soul to learn the many lessons offered in the dimensions of time and space. However, the observable world of disease, suffering, wars and death also contains the experiences of Love, joy, happiness and peace. The world may be shaking with violence and wars, and yet the choice to live in the dimension of Love is the true shelter. Its power is not less strong than the barbs of anger and bigotry; of missiles and bombs. It is just that humanity as a whole has not learned to harness its powers as an answer to the recurring nightmare of wars.

Enter the Great Stillness, the Great Love, and feel the vibrations within. The Cosmic Music plays on and on, in ever-changing beauty and grace. From moment to moment, the energy moves to express and create. If you allow yourselves to calmly observe and to deeply feel, the energy gathers momentum and power as there will be no constriction or tightness around it. It will be like waking up from a deep sleep, sloughing off the dusty veils that have kept the mind in one place and in one way of thinking. The environment then takes on a clarity and brightness, as though lit from within by a gentle light of protection.

Power of the Human Voice – Using the Voice to Manifest Dreams

This post describes the power of the human voice when used as a way to alter mental frequencies for accessing the deepest dream states and to also change for the better any difficult circumstance of our lives. We can use the human voice as “Divine Frequency Modulator” to help us gain conscious entrance to dream states and to also shift the awareness to higher planes or dimensions.

The mind is habituated to certain frequencies or vibrations that it has become accustomed to. The whole experience of life lies within a certain range of resonances, and these make up the spectrum of what you relate to in life. As you learn to slow thoughts down, your frequency changes, allowing for experiences beyond the normal range of perceptions.

Nightly dreams are generated from these slower frequencies. The dream states can be accessed consciously during sleep when you maintain awareness during the transition period between states. The usual habit is to fall asleep as you approach the subconscious realms. With practice, you can learn to maintain awareness as you drift into the land of dreams. It is a matter of tuning into and feeling the frequencies of sleep with awareness.

When you begin to understand the dreamlike nature of the waking state, you will begin to understand yourself connected with a vastly wide consciousness that is dreaming a dream of life through you. Feel and listen now on the inside. Watch and observe; drop into the field of the wider consciousness that is all around you–everywhere.

As you relax and release attachments to thoughts, you will find the energy moving of itself, expressing in ways that does not require any type of thought process that you are familiar with. Immerse now into the flow of the Creative River. It is strong and moves easily and effortlessly. Observe dispassionately. As you do so, the creative voice that wishes to express will find easy manifestation through a heart that is open to the ebb and flow of the cosmic dream.

Step out of the way! As you relax and go into the deeper states of trance, you will find the energy of your Higher Self stepping into your field of consciousness. Allow this to naturally unfold as you observe within. Take note of the different states of consciousness, from wakefulness to the deepest levels of sleep and unconsciousness.

When you fall asleep at night you are in effect entering a different realm of consciousness, a different frequency of awareness. When you awaken you return again to the dimension and frequency of awareness that includes body consciousness and a certain type of mindset and belief system regarding personal identity and spacial location.

The body and world has a resonant frequency that you vibrate along with; and it can sometimes be difficult to change the patterns (your circumstances) even if you wish and pray to do so! The world of vibration has a way of tuning everything around it to its own rate of frequency: a noisy, discordant office with artificial light and little air circulation has very well-known negative effects on body and mind… and yet the mind does have power to change the frequency of the environment through the use of things that are also in the environment. Certain types of music can energize or relax; the sounds of nature such as waterfalls, waves, bird sounds, etc. can have the same effects. The use of drums and rattles can induce deeply hypnogogic states that can open the mind to conscious dreaming.

There is also the human voice which has the range and power to deeply affect the environment and circumstances when used with the twin stallions of emotion and conviction. What gives words power? Vibration! And especially vibrations backed by calm feelings that are connected with the cosmic energy of Divine Love!

If the world weighs heavily upon you, it is because the combined frequencies of fear and hate have created a vibratory quicksand that keeps you trapped and unable to move, caught in hypnotic spell of confusion and inertia. And yet the human voice has the power to shatter any spell or fetter of mind, and can change the environment when used in its role as “Divine Frequency Modulator.” Through its connection with the Divine Source the voice can move mountains of difficulties and change the course of lives!

Explore the power of the voice by first intoning words of Truth with deepest feeling and conviction. Elongate the words, especially the vowel sounds and then listen and feel as the mind enters the deepest states of calm attention. Go deeper still and connect feeling, vibration and words with the Cosmic Source.

Exercise in Mindfulness – Dimensions in Stillness and Subtlety

For those of you who have gotten your arses kicked and dragged up and down Life’s thoroughfares (probably all of you, to one degree or another), the following post is Higher Self’s response to questions about learning how to deal with the mind that gets so caught up in distractions and habits of fears and doubts. This post speaks to issues of mindfulness along with some exercises that help to develop sensitivity to and awareness of subtlety and stillness.

Our shaking you up is never meant to frighten or harm you. On the contrary, we only wish to awaken you to your own power and light. The deeper your slumber, the harder we sometimes need to shake. The energy patterns of your consciousness have ossified into certain ways of thinking and believing that have become narrow and limiting. We are here to help change the patterns of thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve you. Please understand that there are other dimensions of consciousness that are far more in line with the gifts and talents you are meant to express in life. We want to awaken you once and for all time!

The momentum of your thoughts have been going down certain pathways for so long that it is difficult for you to switch tracks, or to rather do away with the limitations of tracks altogether. Learn to release the patterns of thinking that push you down alleys of narrowness. Break out of the straight jacket of small thinking! Awaken now and breathe in your own power. Believe in and receive the gifts of Freedom! If you continue seeking in narrow avenues of what you believe is required for survival in the world, then you cut yourself off from the infinite resources and powers that are available. Stop force-fitting yourself into work that does not make use of your gifts and that only perpetuates the nightmare of separation and delusion.

Ok, Ok, I know I’m to make use of my strengths and talents, to create from the depths of my soul! The challenge is in not getting stuck, in moving forward while being receptive to the voice of Spirit. But once again, I seem to fall back into patterns of doing work that serves only the task of helping to pay the bills but which do not serve the wider purpose of expanding beyond the small shell of limited thinking…I want to express the gifts of the heart that wish to be given birth in the world! What is going on with this? I’m listening and creating, but somehow I’m not getting the message clearly about manifesting.

The answers are with you now in the very environment. You are getting in your own way! The logical mind wants to continue making sense of the world. This is fine and necessary to a certain degree, but you can also allow it to rest as you become aware of the more subtle layers of consciousness that can bring forth the very atoms of creation to manifest for you! You won’t lose your mind or balance!

Listen and feel for what is behind the thoughts. There is so much that is there, but it gets lost in the busy-ness of mental thought forms and “chatter” that dictate how you are to act, think and survive in the world. Don’t get sidetracked or distracted while partaking in the dance of “making a living.” So much more is available in the realms of Consciousness. There is unimaginable power in calm awareness! Allow yourself access to this energy and just watch how quickly circumstances change!

As your body and thoughts slow down, and as you continue to just observe the rise and fall of the breath, a wider experience of your Self comes into the awareness, a Self that is unencumbered by the restraints of time and bodily limitations. In the consciousness of Self, the wider perspective allows for a broader sense of the energy field that you are. The energy does not get stuck or stagnant and can be used to propel your intentions and dreams forward.

Allow yourself to experience the fullness of breath and the vastness of a consciousness that is not limited or attached to one place or object of thought. Wherever you are, just observe the thoughts with eyes closed or open; it does not matter. Calmly allow them to be released without attaching yourself or creating further “stories” around them. Feel the vastness of a consciousness that is calm and at peace.

Calm awareness is not a state of mindlessness; and neither is it a state of boredom. It is, rather, a state of absorption in the field of mindfulness that is connected intimately with the consciousness of the Great Spirit, beyond the narrow perceptions and distractions of bodily attachments.

Sit quietly and observe. Feel the vibrations of thoughts and feelings as they play across the screen of awareness. Take note of how thoughts come and go and allow them to do so without struggling or fighting to keep them at bay. Feel the backdrop of consciousness wherein thoughts seem to rise and fall. In apprehending subtlety, intimations of the Eternal Observer can be felt!

The above exercise in mindfulness is a play of stillness, a dance of the most subtle awareness, wherein you, the observer, begin to apprehend the Grand Observer behind the curtain of consciousness. It is a wide embrace of the cosmic identity that holds the entire Universe in its folds of Divine Love!

War! What is it Good For? – Absolutely Nothing!

Isn’t it time for another ’60s-like Peace and Love movement? I’m reminded of the popular song from 1970: Edwin Starr’s “War,” that helped galvanize a nation reeling from the Vietnam War:

“War, what is it good for–absolutely nothing!”

The grass roots movement from those days seemed to stem from the daily “body count” and graphic pictures of maimed bodies, not only of our nations’ young but also the innocent children of those we fought against, the “collateral victims” that gave faces to an “enemy” we knew little about and understood even less.

A generation later, once again embroiled in a war that harkens to what is most brutal and degrading and that serves only to awaken primordial blood-lust, this time the TV Networks and dispensers of national news mysteriously omit the daily body count and graphic depictions of wars’ insanity. “Out of view, out of mind.” Like frogs slowly being boiled alive, we have forgotten that the heat is on, that in defaulting to violence as “last measure” we relegate Love to powerlessness, to “no measure.” We light the match that is used to boil the water that we sit in.

It is time (and time long overdue) to change the direction of hatred and anger, to allow Love’s frequency and power to change the course of humanity’s incessant river of blood. Love is not a weak response! It can stop anger in its tracks and can even shoot down missiles of hatred from the skies! We just haven’t given it a place in our global hearts.

A wise man once said, “To give God second place is to give Him/Her no place at all…” I believe this to be true regarding Love. That nations must resort to war even as a last measure may seem at times logical and even moral, but it also shows a national consciousness that has not connected truly with Love, with its own heartbeat. It shows a nation unwilling to explore beyond its own fears and loathing, to apprehend a resource far beyond the powers of bombs and missiles.

Love is not a weak sentiment, nor does it mean an absence of anger or hatred in human consciousness. It is, rather, a transmutation of those qualities by the shear act of observing their energies within the body and mind without creating mental stories and pictures that add fuel and fire to their power. Allowing no place to “catch fire” within, the conflagration of anger and hatred ceases to burn.

This post is not a call to rally “against” the war, or to fight “against” perceived atrocities and injustices within and outside our borders, but to rather embrace the “Silent Observer,” to melt into the “One Song” that flows through and sustains all beings and creatures and is known by the name of Love.

Love is the “Great Filtering” presence within that—like the proverbial alchemist— changes the iron of dark thoughts into the gold of Loves’ wide embrace.

What would a ’60s-like Love and Peace Movement look like today? I believe that more and more individuals and groups are coming together to help one another through the use of sound and frequencies to ground the energies of anger and hatred, to transmute those energies that can then be used for powerful creative and healing work.

By learning to listen to Love’s vibration within, they transmute and attune first their own heart’s ability to receive, and then by connecting with groups throughout the world, the power of their unified Love rises like the tide to inundate and transform hearts now consumed by fires of war.

Isn’t it time? To try Love on for size?

Love, the Unified Field Theory Underlying All Creation

This post started out as thoughts regarding the power of manifestation and the meaning and use of money in our world culture. It took a major turn towards thoughts of love as the generative power behind all creation….

It requires more than good intentions to manifest dreams, especially ones that are worthy of our creative energies. Noble ambitions and lofty ideals seem to require a combination of indomitable will to succeed, a passion for the work we do and a “never-give-up” attitude.

Dear Higher Self, how does one get over the hump of “feeling stuck” as we move towards our dreams?

You believe yourself trapped in a desert land of “not-knowing,” of feeling stuck. Energy is always moving. It cannot get stuck! What feels like confusion and inertia is but a thought, a repeating mental construct that feels like a kind of inner paralysis, not knowing how to move forward in life. Do you see freedom as having a greater ability to attract what you need and want, of having more money?

Money is a certain type of energy with massive belief structures tied to it. In your world, money is life, is work, is necessary for your very existence. Money then, has become –- in a sense — god. And yet, you also know intellectually that it is just a concept, a creation of the mind that societies have placed a great deal of value upon. The abuse and lust for money is the ancient and modern day “Slave Master” of which all are subject to so long as they remain bound to its siren voice, mesmerized by glittery promises of happiness and freedom. History amply shows the carcasses of untold millions that have died unfulfilled while in pursuit of the all-powerful coin.

Listen to the drone of desires that have sung epic choruses through the centuries. How often have they devolved in final measure to the coarse strains of “money, sex, power?” Is this too simplistic a depiction of life on planet Earth as expressed through the ages by the magnificent and complex creatures known as Human Beings?

That Mother Earth has born witness to mass slaughter, warfare, and genocide of her children is undeniably evident — even as this degradation continues on today. Of course the Human Being is more than just the volatile mix of money, sex and power. The Human Being as manifested through the Soul sings with transcendant voices of Love and Wisdom, the powerful twins that are the older sister and brother of the triplets, Money, Sex, and Power. In the family of Soul, there are no quarrels between siblings. All have respect for each other, and each has a place in the family.

So long as humans remain trapped in inordinate cravings for any desire, debased or noble, without the stabilizing effects of Love and Wisdom, they shall remain an agitated mass of human longing rather than the divine creation of Human Being.

Love is the one constant, the unified field theory underlying all creation. It is the Soul’s backbone and background, the ground upon which it eternally expresses and creates. Love is the heart of Wisdom, the combined power of which brings forth noble ambitions and dreams. That humans lose their way in the labyrinth of desires is not the intent or way of Love. It is, rather, a result of forgetfulness induced by the drunken grasping after the hypnotic lights of Love’s reflection in the countless Earthly forms that intimate only imperfectly the One Source that would end all blind grasping and longing.

Love’s reflection in the millions of forms around and outside of us is not meant to taunt or torture, but to rather call all souls to seek the One Love behind all desires, the One Light behind all reflections. As you learn and move through Life, growing towards and embracing the Light that brightly glows within, all restless yearnings and sighing after unfulfilled dreams fall away, replaced by the knowing that the nightmare of smallness, of feeling lost and afraid is coming to a close. Asleep no more, you remember your Self and the connection that is unbreakable with the One Consciousness that upholds universes.
