Listening to the Intuitive Voice, Part I

With just a little bit of self reflection, tuning into how we are feeling in the moment, we can easily know when things are not quite “right,” when we’re feeling a bit “off.” If we ignore the subtle inner whispers, over a certain period of time the residue of what we ignore can build up to toxic proportions, physically/emotionally/spiritually…and then we wonder how and why our lives get turned upside down when we are hit by challenges of health, relationships, finances, etc.

When we are feeling “off our game,” a bit down and perhaps outright sad/depressed, we oftentimes may not consider the energetic “webs” of what keeps us “stewing in our juices.” These webs are the thought and feeling patterns that we have mindlessly allowed to play out over and over in our lives.

These webs are vibratory in nature and can be dissolved and expelled from our lives…when we learn to tune into and feel their sticky/yucky nature. Now, we know when something is off in our lives. Tuning into and releasing the residue of toxic energy just takes a bit of time, using whatever practice makes most sense to you: chi kung, taichi, meditation, smudging, dance, etc.

The important point in any practice is to get to the point of feeling the shift of energies/frequencies/consciousness when the webs/toxic energies are released. It is a wonderful experience to actually feel the transformation that takes place when this happens. It is like an opening up of an energetic spigot in the body, allowing breath and energy to flow more freely!

Kundalini Divine Nectar, Part II

Feeling into subtle sensations is simple enough for anyone to do…and it is a concept that is simple enough to understand. That we can feel any sensation at all offers us a doorway, an opening into realms of breathtaking beauty that we miss only for lack of considering what lies just beneath familiar sensations.

Once this initial resistance (to feeling subtle sensations) is released, it is just a matter of feeling deeper and deeper into what seems to naturally open up. In other words, one release opens up to another, to another, to another…

At a certain point, the experience of the subtle Life Force might be felt as a kind of liquid (nectar) moving through the spine, through the “field” of the body. I think of it as “nectar” because there is a kind of visceral sweetness in its movements through the body.

The buildup of this nectar in the body can create feelings of giddiness that, if ignored, can build up to uncomfortable and even painful areas of stuck energy. Now, the body has different ways of working with this “overflow”: shaking, twitching, flailing, etc. Ultimately, as one learns to relax into this energy, the flow of this nectar becomes like a beautiful dance through the body.

The Alchemy of Feelings – Tuning Into Bliss Consciousness

Dear Higher Self, in the dimension of this 3D world, along with all of its physical laws, transformation seems to take a lot of time and effort. It doesn’t happen “overnight.” I’d like to transform my consciousness and circumstances, if not overnight, then very quickly. How can I do this? 

When you go to sleep each night, your consciousness transforms instantly and your 3D existence “disappears” “overnight,” only to continue on upon awakening.

“Yes, I want to change my circumstances and thought/life patterns of lack and limitation. I want freedom to move, create and thrive in the world.”

This is the predicament of so many souls such as yourself who feel/believe they are “stuck” in a certain pattern of existence, unable to move forward. Everyday they awaken into the same predicament they lived through on the previous day. Stagnation sets in and then they feel trapped and unable to even imagine a better existence, unable to move towards the innumerable possibilities that invite them to consider.

In this type of existence, “stuck” feels like depression, overwhelm, sadness and frustration. It also makes the world look and feel insipid, boring. The mind that is stuck in the rut of stagnation degrades to the helpless desire, “I want/need money!” which can lead to a subsistence level existence and feelings of panic.

Understand that the ongoing drama of the world is no less a dream than the dreams you have during sleep. By changing the energetic signature of your consciousness/life you can transform very quickly the circumstances you find yourself stuck in. If you cannot see how this is possible in the present state of your existence, please consider that all of your “reality” is held together by the “resonant frequency” of the dimension that the totality of your consciousness has “tuned” into.

If you feel lost or incapable of switching the channel, trapped in circumstances and ongoing “situations,” the emotional response to them can be changed in an instant by tuning into the higher or wider energetic spectrum of consciousness that is always available to you.

Can you feel what is offered here? The emotional response to situations need not follow the age-old familiar patterns that resort to fear and anxiety, sadness and despair. There is an “alchemy of feelings” that can be used to “graft” the feelings of Bliss to any other feeling, be it anger, sadness, depression, etc., transforming it alchemically into a feeling/consciousness that expresses the light of the Soul’s true existence as Spirit.

How to do this?

This is done by allowing the Bliss energy, that is readily available within and all around the bodily field to merge with the emotions. This then changes the “texture” of feelings, the usual emotional response to difficult situations. By opening up to the wider field of energy, the feelings/emotions are absorbed into the vast ocean of consciousness that, when identified with, transforms the emotional response along with the underlying identity of the little self (the ego) to Higher Self (the soul).

As you tune in with the Bliss vibration and merge it with any emotion/feeling, the power of Bliss allows a wider field for emotions to flow. Feelings of stuckness, sadness, depression, frustration, etc. can then be channeled into the wider ocean of consciousness that is connected intimately with Spirit. The emotional response then need not continue on in old and worn pathways of constriction, fear and anxiety.

How to tune into Bliss?

There are so many avenues to this vibration and one of them is through the very emotions that are felt in the bodily field. Feelings are vast and connected with the underlying Bliss that permeates all things. It can be felt in all things, especially in the bodily field.

Feel and breathe into any emotion or sensation as they arise in the body. As you relax into the feeling, observe the finest movement of energy. It may feel like a pulsation, a radiation, a tickling in the spine (or any part of the body). Relax deeper into the field and allow the energy to build up in power and intensity. The magnetism of this vibration will then absorb any emotion, transforming the texture or feel of its impact in the body/mind/heart.

The baseline experience of how you “feel” in the world shifts to accommodate the higher frequencies of Bliss that flows through the body. Physical circumstances oftentimes do and will change with the shift to a wider resonant frequency, but even if circumstances remain apparently the same, the energetic feel shifts so that they are no longer the “problem” they once were.

The body is a vast field that is wide open for infinite exploration. It can be used as a “launching pad” for any intention or prayer. There is no upper limit to the degree of Bliss that can be experienced. The body, as a Bliss generating machine can be used as a connection with the highest manifestation of Love/Spirit.

This does not make you less effective in daily life, but rather opens you up to the greater potential and possibilities that are all around, waiting to be tuned into.

If it is freedom you want, or money to do the things that support freedom, look at the gifts you already have! Follow the trail of Bliss and Love through the doors of synchronicities that begin showing up. If you feel drawn to explore a certain avenue of creative action, follow that trail with openness and awareness. Go deeper and deeper into the magnetic river of the spine that attracts all that you want and desire. And then take note of what shows up in your environment, in your thoughts and feelings. If circumstances are painful and difficult to navigate, tune into the spine and the energies there. It is not about “controlling” the emotions but rather allowing them space to be absorbed into the wider field of Bliss.

What is strongly calling out to you? Take note of the ideas/thoughts/feelings that arise. Do not judge what comes through. They may be practical or seemingly frivolous. Do not judge but feel the directional pull of energy. Solutions to any problem are very close at hand. All that is required is your openness to explore and then to act upon the impressions that come up. Inspiration requires follow-up and action!

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!

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!

Discovering Your Life Purpose – Create Everyday!

This post is for those who feel stuck in life, not knowing how to move forward. It is also for those who wish to discover how to connect with their life purpose. Creating something everyday is a way to get energy moving within, which then helps us to connect with our life’s purpose.

Create everyday! Anthing! In whatever field you are attracted to, create something, no matter how small or insignificant you might think it to be. The idea is to get to the point of having fun, but in the beginning, just get energy moving even if you feel silly about it.

Move energy within and allow yourself to fly upon creative currents with wings of breath and voice. Get out of your own way and give life to what wishes to be born. Please do not worry about or judge how the world may view your creation or how it may weigh or label it. Just open up and allow the energy to move and dance within. And as you do so, you will find that energy to be conscious and powerfully creative, prompting you to connect with the unique gifts that it wishes to express through the channel of your consciousness.

If there is any blockage or feeling of stuckness, just get up and walk. Or do some doodling on a piece of paper. It doesn’t have to be “beautiful,” or “correct.” Whatever activity you enjoy in the slightest can be used as a way to get the creative river moving within. Listen to the hum of the refrigerator and create a simple tune that is of your making. Write a simple poem that captures what you are experiencing in the moment. None of it need be for human viewing or consumption. The idea is to kick-start the energy, to melt the ice that has grown around the mind and heart so that they are once again allowed to express freely and effortlessly.

Listen within! You have the power to free yourself from moment to moment. The heart is the most sensitive instrument that lets you know when you are moving forward or when you are stuck. It feels on the deepest levels and will guide you each step of the way. However, the mind and its habits of inertia and fear tries to keep the body and heart shut down and in holding patterns of what is believed to be safe and familiar. But again, the heart is powerful. In a sense, it can be used as a “binary diagnostic tool” that can show when you are “on course,” or when you are “off course.” Listen quietly to its voice.

As you learn to create everyday, to give space for energy to move within, the energy begins to connect with the unique purpose of your existence on earth. You begin to discover the gifts that you were born to share and express. There is then no more fighting with Life, with struggling to “fit in” with the expectations that the world has of you.

Feel the resonance of what plays within and around you. It is all there! Never think that you are far from the Source that can change your circumstances in an instant. Listen on the inside, relax and then observe quietly without grasping or forcing the thoughts to work for you. Merge into the flow of what is already moving deeply within and that is connected with the deepest layers of the Creative Source.

Allow energy the space within to play! As it gains momentum, it begins to vibrate and grow stronger of itself, dissolving all hesitancy and timidity. Begin now by creating something, even the smallest thing, everyday! In due time, you will be as intimately connected with your life purpose as you are with breath and heartbeat!

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.

Ancient Alchemy – Transforming Sadness into Joy

In times and cultures long gone, the art of Ancient Alchemy sought to discover–among many other things–a way to turn base metals into gold, and to create a “Panacea,” or “Elixer of Life” that would purportedly cure any illness and prolong life indefinitely. However, may there have been a spiritual and life transforming practice of Ancient Alchemy known to the wise ones? Perhaps one that is at once sublime and yet so practical, like transforming sadness into joy?

Isn’t it interesting that when feeling sad or stuck in one of Life’s unsolvable predicaments, some of the images and language that the mind uses are quite descriptive of what is felt: stuck in the mud; stuck in a rut; spinning our tires; backed into a corner; back against the wall; trying to swim in quicksand; caught in a straightjacket; swimming upstream, etc., etc. ..and the metaphors go on and on.

Feeling the frustrations of stuckness I know all too well. The mind gets to a place where certain thoughts of limitation revolve round and round until the energy level gets trapped beneath a dark veil that — like a Black Hole –- sucks all energy and hope into a seemingly bottomless pit that threatens no escape. When the mind gets caught in this repeating loop of pernicious thinking, moods can strike with amazing swiftness. It is like an oppressive door that opens to let in all manner of negativity and fear…

And yet I also know that these moods and feelings do not last forever; they do not even last very long. It’s just “yucky” when going through the experience. However, having the presence of mind to watch and observe while going through these moods serves greatly to help me move through those dark moments.

The point is to short-circuit the barrage of worry thoughts by observing and listening deeply on the inside. When the feelings are thus observed (without the sirens of thoughts barking within), the perspective of Self as observer comes to the fore and the feelings are seen in their raw nakedness, as energy or vibration that is neutral, a kind of inner beacon that is simply broadcasting vibratory patterns that appear to emit from certain parts of the body –- perhaps from the heart and solar plexus areas.

As we continue observing, the feelings become non-local, as though our bodies have expanded beyond the form we are accustomed to. At that point, the feelings that we may have previously labeled as “bad” or “horrible” may revert back to its neutral state, just “feelings” without the mental stories attached to them. It also may just so happen that as we release the verbiage behind our “bad” feelings, the energy is allowed to flow and the awareness is given insight into the fine line between sadness and joy and the energy component behind both.

As you watch the vibration of sadness in the body (without thinking about it), you may find that its energy begins to move, and then you also see its connection with the movement of bubbling joy that is part of the same Universal Electricity. Observing the feelings of sadness then becomes a steppingstone to the awareness of our connectedness to the One Energy Source. This is the secret alchemy that the ancient wise ones practiced, more valuable than turning base metals into gold!

Creative Inspiration – What to do When Feeling Stuck

Dear Higher Self, sometimes I get to a point where I feel stuck in my writings, devoid of inspiration, not knowing what direction to pursue.

If you ever feel stuck in your writings or any creative endeavor, take a pen and just start drawing quickly and calmly without mentally editing what you draw. The idea is to move energy, to let the pen in hand flow across the paper. Draw what you like to draw, or just scribble without judging the form. This is about getting outside of the linear, logical mind and allowing for the possibility that we are connected with an energy source that is boundless and tireless.

Look at what you draw (or scribble). They open up certain realms and dimensions for you to explore. What you put on paper is an expression of your energy and it can help trigger thoughts and feelings to help give power and manifestation to your dreams.

Gaze calmly and deeply into your drawings. Allow the shapes and forms to coalesce into visions of what you pray for. Do not ignore the impressions that may arise.

You wish to expand your sound healing practice to larger groups. See yourself meeting with groups of individuals in a setting that is what you want to experience. Hold the vision of how you want to feel and then gaze into the drawings you have created. You can also do this while gazing into a fire or the ocean, waterfall or fountain. The idea is to merge yourself into the vision of what you want. Create within what you wish to manifest outwardly.

Move energy with intention and then release with the knowing that what you form with powerful intention will manifest. Believe and know that this is happening now. Every breath you take, every wave of the hand has power to project tremendous amounts of energy. Use this knowledge to create, to manifest your dreams. As you build cloud castles in the sky with your imagination, so you congeal energy into manifestation as you focus powerfully upon your vision
