Lucid Dreaming – How to Wake Up From Them

I understand how it can be a little (or very) scary when one is unable to awaken from a lucid dream that is uncomfortable for whatever reason. This usually happens to me if I am sleeping in an unfamiliar setting (like while traveling), or if I’ve eaten something heavy before going to sleep. It can also be anything that causes inner discomfort, such as unresolved personal problems.

Dreams seem to be a way for our unconscious minds to communicate to our waking, conscious minds. For example, respiratory problems might show up in our dreams as bugs that crawl around our throat or chest areas. While struggling with bronchitis in the past, I once had a lucid dream in which I was belching and spitting fire that took on the form of bugs and all types of creepy crawling things. It certainly got my attention!

There seems to usually be a message in our dreams, something that is symbolically getting through from the unconscious mind. I believe it is important to pay attention. We may also be short-changing ourselves by trying to “wake up” from dreams that are scary or uncomfortable. Of course, we would also not want to continue helplessly down a dream path that is morbid and painful. Rather, by changing our focus and resonant frequency during an unpleasant lucid dream, we enable ourselves to change the quality and direction that it takes. There have been times, however, that have been so uncomfortable (as in nightmares), that the remembrance and wherewithal to chant or pray had somehow eluded me during the dream. The theme that comes to mind is the “old hag,” and “demon” archetypes that threaten to take over or “possess” us. In these types of dreams, the experience of primal fear is terrifying and paralyzing. We wake up shaking and afraid of the dark.

I have received many inquiries from individuals wanting to know how to wake up from these scary dreams and even how to prevent them from happening. My answer can only be from personal experience: I have always awakened from them, not so much from anything that I remembered to do during the dream, but rather because they seem to run a certain course, and then they are over. It is interesting that in the preponderance of lucid dreams that I’ve had, the memory and habit of relaxing and doing all of the necessary things before and during scary lucid dreams have served me well. There have been, however, the occasional dream in which my memory and “practice” of calling in the spirit guides and asking for help during a difficult dream is totally forgotten/obliterated, as though I’ve been plopped down in a nightmare with no known comfort or possibility of extrication. Even the sense of Spirit and Love seem to have been wiped clean from my memory banks! Thankfully these types of dream experiences have been few and far between. It is like being thrown into a black hole or pit wherein the sense of God/Higher Self and its memories of Love and Beauty do not exist. It is a very strange and fearful dimension! Afterwards, I ask myself, “What was that all about?” “Why was I shown such a place?” What came up for me are the words “Humility” and “Gratitude.” Humility in the sense of understanding how little I truly know of myself… and Gratitude for the blessings of having had the experience of Love and Beauty, something not to be taken lightly or for granted.

As far as waking up from the usual lucid dream, what has been helpful for me is the directing of the attention to the spiritual eye center and repeating a prayer over and over. I do this not so much as a way to awaken physically, but to rather shift the tone and direction of the dream to one that flows more easily. In most of the lucid dreams that I find myself in, if I’m feeling uncomfortable in any way, it is usually because of an energetic blockage that has formed somewhere in the “Field.” It then becomes a simple matter of moving the energy along by prayer and breath.

Surrendering to the Cosmic Stream – The Great Awakening

The day-to-day challenges of your life are the very  patterns that the Universe is asking you to face in order to proceed to the next steps in your evolution. The quick and easy fix of just settling for worldly solutions will not work for you. Your test lies in surrendering to the Cosmic Stream that is asking for a total letting go of self into its ego-shattering current.

What does that mean? I still need to live and survive in the world with all of its financial and physical demands.

The kind of surrender we ask is for a releasing of all that you hold on to regarding who you think you are in relation to the constraints and limitations imposed upon you by the cultural and religious conditioning of a world that continues to keep most souls in places of “stuckness.” We are asking you to expand the “knowing” of yourself as an energetic being; not just thinking and mentally understanding this, but truly feeling this.

You are light! All is light! A great influx of Cosmic Vibration is moving through your planet now. Feel this! Experience this! It is all vibration, a distillation of energy and as such you can instantly change the circumstances of your world by changing its energetic patterns.

The dream you believe to be so real is but energy solidified into the hardboiled existence of pain and separation. Awaken now! Experience now the waves of feelings that flow into the oceanic knowing of Self as the Cosmic Dreamer. You are the Infinite Spirit that allowed itself to be stuck for just a little while upon the island of forgetfulness! The Great Awakening is happening though, and soon enough the sleep of ages will fall from your eyes and you will marvel at the wondrous journey of Love that Spirit intended all Creation to partake in through the Cosmic Dream! Wake up now!

The Great Awakening is Happening Now!

Those who grasp and hang onto old and outdated systems of thinking and doing will find much difficulty as the ways of expansion and openness unfold in the days and weeks ahead. The Great Awakening is happening now in the dimension of the Earthly dream. Please understand that although humanity has known and experienced much suffering in its individual and collective memory, the healing of all wounds and suffering is lifted in an instant when the dreams of time and separation are released.

When souls awaken—as they ultimately will—the whole structure of the world and its limitations falls away. When Spirit wakes up from its sleep of earthly dreams, it will know that it has been enjoying its own dance of separation through the billions of souls that move through form. Spirit, in human form, has allowed itself to lose its connection to the Infinite Source for a span of time that seems interminable to the human consciousness.

As Spirit within form, humans have chosen to disconnect from the awareness of the Infinite within themselves. They lost their Selves through preoccupations with the limited senses, identifying so completely with the narrow band of existence that they call “reality,” that  they have forgotten how to reconnect with the Oceanic Love within which all things emanate.

The Great Awakening is happening though, as Spirit refuses to remain asleep forever. With great celebration and joy the Spirit song grows louder and calls all beings to awaken. The call can also be felt as sadness or great longing as individuals begin to remember where they came from and the unimaginable earthly sojourn they have taken upon themselves. Joy or sadness? Release it all to the River of Spirit. It flows inexorably to the Ocean of of Love, the repository of Infinite Bliss which heaves ecstatically through the awakened heart.

Listen now! The call is being sounded and can be felt within. It calls you to release all things, your sadness and joys to the Divine River. It also beckons you to understand this: you are the River; you are the Ocean! The dream of separation is dissolving and you are awakening into the dimensionless realms of unspeakable Bliss!

Creativity – a Frequency of Love

Immerse yourself in the waters of Creativity that flows smoothly and powerfully. There is no stopping the river! It flows eternally and effortlessly. Once you step into the realms of deep mystery, the energy and resonance of its song will carry you along on its currents. Just write quickly, without stopping to question whether or not what is expressed is good or bad. Do not hold back in your creativity. The idea is to get the momentum going and then step aside to allow the Higher Self to express freely. In this way, Beauty is unleashed to reveal its secrets through your writings and drawings. It is a way to bypass the mind that wishes to evaluate and judge everything before giving voice or expression.

Artwork by Bruce Manaka

Allow, relax and then open up to deeper and deeper levels of Spirit. There is then no stopping the flow of this beautiful river, no boundary to your creative endeavors. Go deep quickly and express freely without fear or limitation. The field of Love then expands in all directions.

The heart speaks and communicates through the language of intuition. As you gaze across the landscape of your feelings, you receive impulses regarding any question or desire you may have. Listen to and feel deeply for the answers that well up in the energetic field that you are immersed in. Feel the finest vibrations of the subtle voice. You are a Creator, a vast field of Consciousness that is connected to Source Energy.

Understand that the vibratory field of the body is infinite and connected seamlessly with all Creation. The belief of the body as limited and separate is a play of Spirit enjoying itself through the countless creations that it has given life and individuality to. We have forgotten our eternal connection with the Divine and dream that we are limited beings stuck upon a world that requires struggle and fight for survival.

Spirit is asking for a release of the tight grasp that you have upon the narrow vibratory realm of the three dimensional world. The heart is calling for the letting go of the rigid bundle of beliefs that you hold onto regarding what is possible. Step now into the wider home of omnipresence and offer into the fires of wisdom all stories of limitation!

What amazing dimensions can be explored and enjoyed! Feel, relax, breathe in deeply the energies of Spirit. You have access to all dimensions and can learn from the Masters of all realms. As you tap into the resonance of Being, you can dive into any ocean of the Infinite. What sacred mystery do you wish to explore? What frequency of Love do you wish to experience?

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

· August 3/4, 2010 – Mars in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn
· August 16, 2010 – Jupiter in Aries opposes Saturn in Libra
· August 21, 2010 – Saturn in Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn

(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!

Singing in the Vortex

Awakening to the Medicine Wheel of Your Own Power

You are awakening to the medicine wheel of your own power and no longer need the lessons of stagnation and feeling stuck to get you to move forward. Move ahead with confidence towards the dreams you have and shake the world with your knowing! The heart is opening up to reveal the gifts you have been born with; and there is a growing sense of clarity and direction as you walk the path you are meant to travel.

The World is in need of individuals stepping more and more into their own light. Do your part to help. The unfoldment happens as a manifestation of intentions and not from a position of fear. Isn’t it interesting that you cannot now see the details of all the changes that are ahead of you in the months ahead, but all will unfold in its own time as you tune yourself to the voice of wisdom and as you learn to harness the resonant fields of sound and vibration to manifest your dreams. As you increase the power and frequency of your own vibration, you can help the relative vibration of any environment you choose to be in. Send your intentions out on energetic waves of intention, on waves of harmonics!

You are ready to understand the mysteries of both darkness and light. The path is opening up. Drop all stubborn attachments to what is considered “real” and “unreal.” When veils are lifted, the life you live and move in will seem no more than a dream.

The connections you have with the present existence is mostly through mind and senses. As you drop the veils and attachments to mind and mind fluff, worlds upon worlds open up to you; and as you peer into the inner landscape, you will find patterns in the “external” waking consciousness reflecting more and more the patterns that swirl within. The spiral and circle of the great Medicine Wheel then comes to awaken and release the long-restricted “Beast” of freedom and creativity!

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.
