Live with Intention to Fulfill Your Soul’s Purpose

Living with intention creates the conscious foundation for a life of ‘Balanced Action’. If you think about your activity, all the doings of your life, on a scale ranging from no activity to hyperactivity. There is going to be a sweet spot somewhere in the middle where the optimal degree of activity is achieved. This is what I call ‘Balanced Action’. It is when the activity level of your expression is neither underactive in ‘Passivity’ nor overactive in ‘Reactivity’.

Intentional living is a powerful way to secure your optimal placement on your life path. It positions you to automatically proceed with ‘Balanced Action’. I find that clients often struggle as they try to figure out what this is supposed to look like. They wonder what exactly they are supposed to do as if there is a user manual with instructions and a roadmap. While this does not exist in a book that you can check out of the library, it is programmed within your ‘Self’, specifically within your Soul. Your Life Matrix, within your Soul, lays out the specific potentialities and particulars of your Soul. It is a part of your basic nature which means that it is backed with the almighty force of nature itself. 

It is natural for you to grow, to evolve and to learn the lessons programmed within your Soul. It is natural for you to actualize who you are and fulfill your Soul’s purpose. It is so naturally intended that you do not even need to know what your Soul’s purpose is in order to proceed. Nor do you need to have a view of what the final ‘Form’ will be in order to manifest it. Within the inner realm your ‘Form’ mirrors the tangible reality of your outer realm. Your optimal path of evolution will automatically occur if you sustain ‘Balanced Action’ and show up each day to authentically express who you are.  

Most people do not grow up being educated about the workings of the inner ‘Self’ or even what constitutes the inner ‘Self’. Many people get hung up on the magnitude of this idea or the intangible quality of consciousness. The result is often ‘Reactivity’ as they spin off frantically trying to figure it out or ‘Passivity’ leaving the questions about human consciousness to others. I will provide you with a basic mapping of ‘Self’, from the perspective of time, thus I see you as an evolving being. 

There are four parts making up the constitution of your ‘Self’. Two parts reside within the inner realm and two parts exist in the outer realm. Your Essence and Soul are your inner parts and your Gifts(Natural Abilities) and Personality are your outer parts. Getting to know one’s ‘Self’ is a fundamental part of everyone’s life path.   

Connect with Your Inner ‘Self’:

If you are sensitive to energetics and tuned into this view of human consciousness then…Open to connection with your Essence, your light within the deepest part of who you are. Open to perception of what your light is shining through before it reaches the surface. This is where your Life Matrix is clearly viewed within your Soul. 

If you are more tangibly oriented…Open to connection with the things in life that spark you, enliven you, make you lean in, bring curiosity or excitement. Open to the things in life that affect you profoundly, that you care deeply about or that bring you pause to step back and seriously contemplate. 

Connect with Your Outer ‘Self’:

If you are sensitive to energetics and tuned into this view of human consciousness then…Open to the energetic structure of your Gifts(Natural Abilities)…observe how this part of you is an inverted projection of your Soul matrix. Open to the energy of your personality…what is your temperament, tempo, the energetic impression you leave on others and the environment? 

If you are more tangibly oriented…Open to the things that come natural to you, things you are drawn to, things you learn proficiency with ease. Open to awareness of how you impact others and the world around you…what are your character traits, what is the feedback you receive about yourself?     

Following is an activity chart that lays out some of the benefits which naturally emerge from intentional living. It also lays out what happens to these benefits when you drift away from your intentional center to become overactive or underactive in your expression. I then go on to discuss these five benefits along with their corresponding pitfalls of ‘Passivity’ and ‘Reactivity’.  

Living PassivelyLiving with IntentionLiving Reactively 
Conditioning & Collective Consciousness Dictate Life ExperiencesCore Values & Principles Dictate Life ExperiencesFears & Wounds Dictate Life Experiences
Denies EmpowermentGenerates Empowerment Negates Empowerment
Impedes Soul’s Purpose Realizes Soul’s PurposeDistracts from Soul’s Purpose
Creates DisappointmentCreates Fulfillment Creates the Opposite of Desires 
Produces Separation from Self Produces Connection with Self, Others, AllProduces Separation from Others 

Living with Intention; Core Values and Principles Dictate Life Experiences. When you bring consciousness to your core values and behave in accordance with your principles, your life becomes ‘Form’ed in the likeness of what is important to you. This is because your conscious intentions become a part of your inner landscape. This inner ‘Form’ solidifies and exudes the power of the observer effect on your current environment. Aligning your intentions, your inner ‘Form’, with your core values creates the most authentic expression of ‘Self’ possible in your current environment. 

In contrast to the balanced life expression that will emerge with intentional living, when your expression is overactive in ‘Reactivity’ or underactive in ‘Passivity’ your life experience becomes dictated by very different things. Living Reactively; Fears and Wounds Dictate Life Experiences. A reaction is rooted in fears about what could occur in the future or wounding that has occurred in the past. When you react due to a past hurt you end up recreating the past wounding which is what we call ‘repetition compulsion’. When you react out of fear it becomes a ‘self fulfilling prophecy’ which makes the manifestation of your fears more likely. Living Passively; Conditioning and Collective Consciousness Dictates Life Experiences. This is where the consequences of ‘herd mentality’ come into your life. When you refuse to take a stand your energy defaults to your conditioning (hard constructs in your individual field) combined with the collective consciousness (group level constructs) where the majority rules . A failure to vote, to intend your choices in life, is synonymous with defaulting to your past conditioning and the current majority vote. 

Living with Intention Generates Empowerment. Intentional living is the best preventative medicine you can employ. It naturally lowers stress and provides mental health benefits. The greatest expression of power from your ‘Self’ comes when you utilize your natural abilities or Gifts to express your core values. This is what we call authentic living, which is the most natural and the least stressful state of action, in which you may exist. 

Deviating from the balanced activity of intentional living, in contrast, is disempowering. Living Reactively Negates Your Empowerment. Even when your reaction is forceful, it is not an expression of your power which only comes from authentic expression. A reaction is generated by fear, which creates a twisted outcome, a weakened ‘Form’ of your original motive. In comparison to an intentioned response which is rooted in love. An expression of love holds the greatest power, it is like shooting an arrow straight at your objectives. Living Passively Denies Your Empowerment.Passivity’ is a failure to recognize reality which means you automatically forgo your power to effect change. You must actively own reality in order to engage a viable start point for transformation. 

Living with Intention Realizes Your Soul’s Purpose. Intentional living brings consciousness to who you are, your ‘Self’. Your Soul resides within your inner ‘Self’, thus you must look within to know your purpose. If your references for ‘Self’ are all outside of you then you will only see other’s projections, not who you really are. Living with intention naturally generates the action for you to play your part within the collective. It brings focus to your life and makes it easier to make decisions as you realize your Soul’s purpose.

Overactivity and underactivity both distort your view of your life path and alter the course of your life, preventing the actualization of your purpose. Living Reactively Distracts from Your Soul’s Purpose. Your purpose in life can only be viewed from within the core of who you are, your ‘Self’. When you hold a centered and grounded position on your path your Soul’s purpose naturally unfolds as you perpetually perform the next right act. A reaction though is generated from a small view or point outside your ‘Self’ and this pulls your energy away from your intended path. Living Passively Impedes Your Soul’s Purpose. The fulfillment of your soul’s purpose is an expression of ‘Self’ that requires energy and action. Living passively fails to bring enough energy to source your forward movement. The light of your essence must shine through your Soul, emitting electrical impulses in the ‘Form’ of your purpose. Then as the outer reflects the inner you embody this ‘Form’ within your personality. This most superficial part of ‘Self’ effects change and leaves an impression within the group level energy and consciousness. 

Living with Intention Creates Fulfillment. To experience fullness at the depths of your being you must appeal to your true nature and connect with your deepest desires. Living authentically and intentionally from your inner ‘Self’ creates an impression, on your life path, in the ‘Form’ of your needs and desires. This impression produces a vacuum that attracts or magnetizes what you desire from your current environment. 

Living Reactively Creates the Opposite of Your Desires. Reactions are typically high energy expressions focused on the prevention of what you fear. But given that they are rooted in fear, all that energy is backing your fear and you are unintentionally manifesting the opposite of your desires. Ultimately what occurs is the creation rather than prevention of what you fear. Living Passively Creates Disappointment. Every human being is intended to ‘Self’ actualize, it is programmed within the fiber of one’s being. Your journey of ‘Self’ actualization naturally and automatically fills the ‘Form’ of your ‘Self’ and you will experience this as fulfillment. It is what naturally occurs when you fulfill your Soul’s purpose. But when you fail to express who you are then you fail to have this experience. Instead you are left with loss and disappointment.  

Living with Intention Produces Connection with Self, Others, All. Intentional living emerges from the depths of your being where you must be present. Presence is a gift of love and love is the glue of connection. Thus, living with intention is an act of love producing connection first with your ‘Self’. The state of ‘Self’ love then makes you available for loving connection with others. You are only capable of loving another to the depths at which you love your ‘Self’. And, it is through connection with ‘Self’ at the core of your being that you are able to connect with the ‘All’. Source energies reside within you just beyond your Essence. 

Living Reactively Produces Separation from Others. No one is drawn to someone who is in a state of reactivity. When you are reactive, in overactivity generated by fear, you can either draw another into your struggle or repel them away from you. Either way it produces separation from the other person. Fear always produces separation which is the purpose of your survival based rational fear response, but here I am referring to the irrational fears that human beings cling to. Living Passively Produces Separation from Self. The experience of your ‘Self’ lies in the enactment of your expression in the group flow. Passivity prevents this natural expression and you are unable to experience your ‘Self’ fully. It requires energy to hold back the powerful flow being generated by the force of nature and the resultant state of being is one of separation from your ‘Self’.

Expand Your Container to Hold Greater Abundance

We are all familiar with different kinds of containers to hold and transport things. Humans readily use them on a daily basis. There is even a store that sells only containers; totes, bins, baskets, jars etc. These are physical containers. If we take a step away from this level of density we can consider computers. Here containers are packages of software that include the necessary elements to run in any environment. In a computer, containers serve to virtualize the operating system. 

The human energy field has containers as well that are even less dense than the computers. Your human containers are spatially encapsulating your expressive flow of energy. As distinguished from boundaries which filter your receptive flow of energy. In their optimal state your containers are soft constructs that hold you without limiting you the way hard constructs do. Your containers shape and define who you are, while encompassing the parameters of your life. They contain all the elements you need to animate your specific lifepath. 

Following, I will provide guidance about how you can expand your field in four simple steps. These steps apply to each of your containers. I will talk briefly about the six different containers that hold your energy within the six layers of your field of consciousness. The following information is essentially a set of energetic instructions for you to expand your containers creating the space to allow greater abundance to come into your life. 

Read through the energetic instructions and work with the information as you are able to understand it. If you do not have the ability to perceive your own energy field and follow the instructions, no worries. Recite the quote at the end of each step in How To Expand, to stimulate the desired energy shifts. Recite the quote at the end of each container description in The Containers Within The Layers Of Existence, to activate the restoration of balance and expansion of your containers. These quotes can be utilized as affirmations or mantras. The more you bring this messaging into your field, the greater the shifts you will experience within yourself and in your life. 

HOW TO EXPAND 

Following are four simple steps 1. Come present, 2. Clear your energy flow, 3. Reinforce the energetic integrity of your edges, and 4. Surrender to your inherent evolutionary stream. This innate progression naturally creates expansion in your energy field. For each step I have included a few key points to remember and a quote to be utilized for stimulating the enactment of the step.

  1. Come fully present. 
  • You must be present in the here and now to expand your container. Observe your energy to see if it is flowing in the moment with your body at the center.
  • If you are expanding from anyplace other than here or now you are accentuating your absence and diminishing, rather than expanding who you are. Observe where your energy is in the past, the future or any place other than here.
  • Only the present is real. All other ‘perceptions’ of reality are actually distortions. Challenge your perceptions to be certain you are perceiving reality. 
  • “I am right here, right now, clearly perceiving my current position, my present state of being and the realities of my life.”
  1. Fill the space you presently occupy and clear the flow.  
  • Own and accept the full scope of who you are from your most exemplary qualities and acts to your most destructive.    
  • Clear all density to allow your light to emanate. Density appears dark and feels heavy. Where density exists in your field, bring in light to raise your vibrational frequency. This will lighten the density. 
  • Clear all conscious limitations to the full scope of your knowing. Sense for hard constructs which you will intuit as rigid or harsh. Again, raise your vibrational frequency to transform these into the malleable structures of soft constructs that support rather than limit.  
  • “I embrace all of me both positive and negative. I clear my energy and consciousness of all limitations as I experience freedom.”   
  1. Feel your edges and reinforce your energetic integrity 
  • Come into the acceptance of your vulnerabilities and limitations.  Denial of them only makes them stronger and compromises your energetic integrity. 
  • Come into the acceptance of your strengths and advancement. Rejection of them inverts the energy and you are left with only vulnerability and limitation. 
  • Reinforce your energy containment within the different layers of existence; I, Element, Sound, Light, Consciousness, Reflection 
  • “I accept my vulnerabilities and my strengths alike as I fortify the parameters and integrity of my being. I strengthen the containers that define the space of me.”
  1. Tap into your evolutionary stream of energy and awakening track of consciousness.
  • Surrender into the flow of change within your core, the one that promotes a smooth and steady progression of forward and upward movement. 
  • Allow your consciousness to be activated as you open to life with childlike wonder. Perpetually perceive life anew.  
  • Settle into your life track. Honor the life experiences that are yours to have. 
  • “I open with curious wonder to discover the potential percolating within me to evolve and awaken.”

THE CONTAINERS WITHIN THE LAYERS OF EXISTENCE

As One-Self is differentiated within the layers of existence the quadratic operatives at play are the container, the instrument, the creation and the figuration. There are six layers of existence; I, Element, Sound, Light, Consciousness and Reflection. Each of these layers has its own containment field. Your containers are a part of your basic operating system in life. They serve to hold you and transport you throughout your life. You exist within the different layers of existence and you have differentiated containers for each layer. Integrated into wholeness these containers shape you.

Your Chakra Container Unifies The I Of You. 

The Chakra Container resides within the I layer of existence. As you ascend the density of the world and come into your presence as a light being, your chakras turn to form a beam of light. Individual chakras synchronize their spin to cycle in unison. You become your divinity and everything is below as it is above. 

“I Am Now Here Creating Life”

Your Touch Container Configures The Elements Of You.

The Touch Container resides within the Element layer of existence. As you evolve developing mastery over the matter of life, your fundamental elements become an extension of your will to create. This container follows the contours of your human body. With proficiency your will acts like tentacles reaching from the void to supply the elemental elixir of your life.  

“I Sense, I Choose, I Build therefore I Expand” 

Your Capsule Container Allows You To Experience The Sounds Of You 

The Capsule Container resides within the Sound layer of existence. As you harmonize with life’s messages being absorbed and assimilated you attune to higher frequencies. This container pulses in the darkness, transmitting communications for all who have ears to hear. Your high frequency balanced experiences reverberate the sounds of your divinity as you become a part of the universal song within the symphony of the spheres. 

“I Listen as Divine Truth Nurtures Me”   

Your Vehicle Container Transports Your Essence, The Light Of You 

The Vehicle Container resides within the Light layer of existence.I travel through life, carried by the sacred chariot of divine light. As you illuminate the cycles of your life, you become enlightened. This container is the “Merkaba”, two sparks of light fusing your humanity with your natural divinity, uniting heaven and earth. It is within this layer of existence that  you will find the Akashic Records. 

“I Ignite My Light, Enlightening All”  

Your Ray Container Conveys Your Spirit, The Consciousness Of You 

The Ray Container resides within the Consciousness layer of existence. Each conscious ray awakens universal truths within your spirit. As you develop mastery of universal wisdom you raise your consciousness. It is through this process of awakening that the quintessence of your spirit is realized. This container pockets within.

“I intuit the full array of life.”

Your Mirror Container Provides The Energetic Reflection Of You 

The Mirror Container resides within the Reflection layer of existence. Your life is a perfect reflection of this container making it impossible to discern unless the veil is lifted. As you lift the veil, dissolving the illusion of separation, life makes perfect sense and the divine order is revealed.  

“Life reflects the truth, no more, no less.”

Discover the Power of the Universals to Build a Sustainable Life

Sustainable living is a hot topic and subject of much debate these days as we are seeing the effects of global warming. Climate events that threaten the sustainability of human life are increasing more rapidly than anticipated. First let’s consider what sustainability actually means. From a global perspective we can look to the United Nations Brundtland Commission who in 1987 defined sustainability as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” So here we are now, a generation later, more compromised than was feared and our need for sustainable living is of even greater urgency.

Sustainable living is referencing a lifestyle in which you reduce your ecological footprint, moving towards an ideal of “net zero living”. This is when there is a basic equality; the amount going out is the same as the amount coming in. You know how important equality is to me and how it is a requisite tenant of the universals. Net zero living enables you to live in a symbiotic relationship with your natural environment. This all sounds good, right? And yet, humanity is not living in this manner. 

On a physical level, moving toward sustainability requires consideration of environmental issues in partnership with economic ones. Human beings’ inhibit progress toward ecological balance. They are not readily cognizant of the world around them, particularly with the technological progression. But even where there is awareness and concern for the environment, peoples’ relationship to money gets in the way. Greed is the motive for some, but for many others it is their economic fears that prevent an appropriate response to the climate crisis.

I think the biggest hurdle though, is getting people on board to consider the bigger picture to the degree that they are willing to make changes in their lives now. People in general hold a very small, narrow view. They are overwhelmed with the challenges of their individual lives so much so that the ability to sort it all out and know how to help humanity as a whole can feel out of reach. I encourage you not to give up but rather consider your individual life. For the individual, a sustainable life is one where you are able to meet your present needs without compromising your resources or access to them in the future. This is the place to begin with balance and then expand out from there. Expand in time to include the future generations, expand in space to your fellow man in the here and now, and keep expanding in all possible directions.  

One approach to sustainable living is based on principles of simple living and self sufficiency. This is a place where you can easily begin with the denser energies of your outer world. Simplify your life physically, emotionally and mentally as you move towards greater self sufficiency. However, if we are to truly turn things around, I believe we need to approach this imbalance from both directions; outside working in and inside working out. We need to work with the whole vibrational array, bringing higher and higher frequencies into the manifest world. We need to address human consciousness and work with restoring universal balance. The universals are inherently sustainable and ecological. Any energy materialization or conscious construct that holds universal form is thus inherently ecological and sustainable. 

In my twenties I participated in a healing group of practitioners. It was a high level group but the powerful changes being enacted were not always safe as the energy being strewn about was going out of bounds resulting in car accidents and the like. As we dove into the energetic realm, shifting energy to effect change, we began to pose the question “is it ecological?” We then only engaged the shifts that presented as being ecological, to avoid such mishaps. When I subsequently conducted my own research in human consciousness and clinical trials utilizing different energetic protocols I went to great lengths to establish safeties with the work. 

I found that the best way to ensure safety is to engage all energy work within a universal framework, which is inherently ecological. The universals establish the parameters of reality and they govern the structure and flow of life. I found that the sustainability of a life is in direct correlation with the degree to which that life holds universal form and balance within that form. 

Following is a list of some of the ways that working with the Universals empowers you to build a sustainable life for yourself and why it works this way. Things always happen on an energetic level before they are physically manifest. Thus taking charge and effecting change on this level will in time bring change to the denser physical level, it is inevitable.  

  1. Center to Connect with Your Resources 

Centering within yourself supports a sustainable life because it is through your center that you connect with the source energies that fuel your life force. This connection supports your natural regenerative and healing processes and prevents depletion. Centering within the Universal Models, aligns you with the purity of the universal elements from which your life is built and sustained. It brings balance to the elements throughout your life allowing for optimal efficiency. Everything in your life emerges from these basic building blocks or foundational elements. The energy elements; earth, air, water, fire, ether and fixative. The elements of human consciousness; time, space, consciousness, creation, love and the spark. 

Thus, centering within these universal models balances the elements within your life. This is the closest you will come to the experience of the “fountain of youth”. If you then open to the source energies within your center and allow them to fill your energy field, they will in turn fill your life and flow beyond. You always want to give from the overflow, not your personal life sustaining energies, as not to deplete your own resources. Here is where we have all we need to overcome the imbalances in the world. 

  1. Deepen and Expand to Increase Access and Utilize Your Resources

When you deepen within your core it provides you with a bigger view of life and the perspective you need to locate the resources necessary to sustain your life. Deepening has the same effect as if you were standing next to an elephant, only able to see the leg, and then you stepped back enough to see the whole elephant and then further to see the whole herd and so on. The deeper you are, the greater the scope of your potential, as well as your view.

When you expand to fill this bigger space that you are able to perceive, you become more fully present. This permits you access to the life sustaining resources within your view. It positions you and empowers you to utilize your freewill and choose in life. The more you expand, the greater the scope from which you may choose. 

  1. Awaken Your Quantum Consciousness 

When you are awakened your consciousness is enlightened to the quantum probability matrix. This is the ideal perspective to have when exercising your freewill to choose in life as your freewill is limited by your field of consciousness. If you cannot perceive it then it will be difficult to choose it. You need to have conscious awareness of the imbalances in the world around you if you are to effect positive change shifting life towards greater universal balance. 

Quantum consciousness taps into the infinite potential. If you combine this awareness with an awareness of the universal framework, it will become clear what resides within the sustainable range. Energy resources are squandered when life is imbalanced with the universals. Whereas a perfect net zero environment is one of perfect universal balance. 

  1. Establish Viable Parameters 

When you synchronize the parameters of your being with the universal forms, you optimize your sustainability. Doing this establishes the optimal size, shape and focus for your life and it prevents you from being distracted out of the viable range. If you allow your energy to flow outside these parameters it is like throwing precious resources in the trash. And if you allow other energy to flow within these parameters you are compressing and constricting your own energies and freedoms.  

Parameters exist at many different levels. You can think of an energetic containment field like an electric fence establishing a being’s autonomy. Proper containment will encompass your resources and protect your energy reserves. Your personal boundaries are subset parameters that protect you from leaking energy and resources. They also protect you from receiving unwanted energies within your personal space. At a group level you have collective parameters that are set by differing group configurations. Here you hold the power to influence the viability of the group by always contributing universal balance to the mix. 

  1. Subtle Shifts are Sustainable Ones.

When you work with universal models you are working within a holistic framework. This means the energy of your whole life, from conception to crossing over, all the places you will be and lives you effect including any ripple effect. Working holistically, change is broadscale, it is distributed in a large range. This has the effect for the individual in the moment to be experienced subtly. These subtle holistic shifts reach your edges and ripple into the group energy around you. 

Working holistically with the universals means the energy and consciousness is pervasive throughout time, space, consciousness, creation, love and spark in your life. These subtle holistic shifts are different from peak experiences which can be profound and albeit life changing events. But these are emerging from a particular, not universal, origin. Peak experiences will have a ripple effect yet still not be as pervasive and longstanding as a universal shift.    

Meditation for Earth Healing and Sustainability on Planet Earth

I encourage you to practice the following meditation to be a part of restoring universal balance on the earth. As an earth inhabitant you will personally feel a shift in your own life as well. 

Envision the earth perfectly centered within each of the platonic solids and the sphere. Begin with one, hold the image within your inner intuitive eye until you sense it to be balanced and then move on to the next one. Practice this meditation often.

Experience True Independence – Actualize Your Authentic Self  

In the United States we celebrate Independence Day, on the fourth of July, in observance of America’s independence. It pays tribute to the origin of our country and declares our sovereignty as a nation. The fourth of July though, has become more about individual liberties and a symbol of human equality than a celebration of our country. There is a natural progression from the freedom of a nation to the individuation of the citizens within that autonomous collective. The same principles and desires do apply. But, the origin of independence and the group as a whole must not be forgotten or compromised. The free expression of the individual ought never impede another’s freedom within the collective or the collective as a whole. It puts the whole group at risk and it is not sustainable. This is the imbalance happening currently in our country. 

As we approach the topic of true independence and the authentic expression of one’s Self, I will be talking about the characteristics of a Self Actualized person. Specifically ten characteristics that were first noted by Maslow and confirmed in current times. I will be talking about the stages one goes through on the journey of Self Actualization. And finally, I will talk about the energetic components of the Self at play in the realization of one’s potential. Diving into this topic, it is important to remember that true independence occurs while in the right relationship with others and with the larger collective. I think you will see how developing these characteristics, engaging the different stages of actualization that nowhere is it necessary to compromise others. 

The Characteristics of an Actualized Person 

In his article “What Does It Mean to Be Self-Actualized in the 21st Century”, Scott Barry Kaufman talks about how he has taken Maslow’s notes on the characteristics of an actualized person and puts them through “rigorous testing” to find that ten hold up. I have taken the list of characteristics and provided some pointers for you to foster these qualities within yourself. 

Continued Freshness of Appreciation 

  • Approach all tasks with reverence to engage an active appreciation for the details of your life in the moment. 
  • Maintain a childlike state of wonder and awe throughout your life, you are not intended to abandon this posturing as you grow. 
  • Foster a gratitude practice to help you elicit this type of appreciation. It can help to reconnect you, particularly if you have lost touch with this natural state of being. 

Acceptance 

  • Consent to receive life, as it is, without the need for diminishment or exaggeration. 
  • Come to the perception and satisfaction of life’s sufficiency. 
  • Release all judgment, it has the effect of repelling what is being received.   

Authenticity 

  • Strengthen your energetic integrity; the unity, coherence and wholeness of your being. Hold this no matter what is occurring around you. 
  • Maintain your source connection, the energies from which you originate. When something is authentic it is of undisputed origin. 
  • Fuel all of your endeavors with source energies to ensure authenticity in all your actions.

Equanimity 

  • Maintain your composure as life constantly changes and unfolds. 
  • Sustain a centered state of balance as not to be too high, low, left, right, up or down.  
  • Take life in stride, respond rather than react. 

Purpose 

  • Be clear about your motives and why you are doing everything that you do. 
  • Show up for your overarching mission in life, it is your responsibility alone; no one else can be you. 
  • Consider the ripple effect of your actions. What is the ultimate impression you are contributing to the whole.  

Efficient Perception of Reality 

  • Perceive life as it is, objectively, without personal projections or distortions. 
  • Always seek to find the truth and keep your conscious focus here, despite any fear or pain that the truth evokes within you.
  • Keep it simple and real, resist over complications. 

Humanitarianism

  • Embrace your own humanity and cherish the value of this moment within your finite human life.
  • Appreciate the merit in each human life no matter how small or large the scope of that life appears to be. 
  • Foster your desire to help others. Always look for the opportunities to support, enhance or expand another person’s life. 

Peak Experiences 

  • Pause to feel the potentiality in life being realized as the new comes in to provoke opening and expansion. 
  • Make note of the times when you become aware of your evolution or a shift to a new plateau in life. 
  • Pay attention to moments of elation, connection with your spirit or a perception of something greater than what you sense with your basic senses. 

Good Moral Intuition 

  • Be conscientious in discerning when an action is creative versus destructive (right rather than wrong).
  • Consider the full scope and impact of your decisions to act or failure to act when it is called for.   
  • Look, listen and feel within for guidance regarding right action, do not rely blindly on societal norms. 

Creative Spirit 

  • You are creating your life in each moment, do so with consciousness. Never posture as if life is happening to you. 
  • Regularly try new things and learn new skills, it will keep you actively engaged in the creative nature of life. 
  • Live with intention. Intend something, live as if it is so and discover the possibilities as they are realized.

The Seven Stages of Self Actualization

The list of stages is a reprint from 2001 when I was only a few years into running training groups. Self Actualization is a natural process that all are intended to realize. It is a part of the journey of authentic living in universal balance that naturally occurs as you awaken. It is an essential stepping stone towards transcendence of the Self. You must first become who you are and experience who you are before you can transcend who you are.    

The FIRST STAGE of Self-Actualization is the CRAVING. This type of craving is one that comes from within. It pierces through logic, conditioning and the systems you find yourself within. This type of craving is inherent in every living being. It is often layered over and suppressed, but it cannot be destroyed. The initial stage of Self-Actualization occurs when you connect with this craving, you accept it, and you give yourself permission to become who you are.

The manner in which you reach this deep place of self is very individualized. For some of you it will be a dramatic, or even tragic, life event that opens you to the depths of yourself. For others you may feel a small spark within and a knowing. In our culture, if one has made it into adult life without Self-Actualizing, connection with this craving is often called a mid-life crisis. For many of you, career dissatisfaction or the arrival of your children into adulthood will initiate the process. You will begin to look internally rather than externally for a reflection of yourself. This will prompt you to make a decision to change your Self and live more truthfully. 

The SECOND STAGE of Self-Actualization is the DISCOVERING. This stage begins once you have connected with your craving, accepted it and given yourself permission to be your Self. You will then dive into your Self to discover what is there. During this stage you will make distinctions about what is, and is not, a part of your Self, in a sorting process. The impressions taken from your experiences will inform you as they hold key elements about who you are. You will then begin to ascend the experience and gain knowledge about the impetus behind it, bringing the awareness full circle.

During this stage, you will often try new things or return to activities left behind earlier in your life. You will also let go of formerly important activities. Some of these activities will never be reintegrated into your life because you have ascended the experience. Others, if they are a true expression of who you are, will be reengaged at a later time. You will begin to discover and know, with unshakable certainty, aspects of who you are. This knowing can come in many forms. It can be as simple as a feeling, or as complex as a visible picture formed by a series of events which cross the lives of many people.   

The THIRD STAGE of Self-Actualization is the UNFOLDING. This stage is when you will feel excitement. The journey of sorting who you are, ascending your previous experiences and connection with the impetus of the discovery phase has propelled you forward. Now your perspective shifts from external learning to internal observations. You will explore the layers of your Self, in their depth. An understanding of the principles of your Self will begin to emerge. This becomes the foundation upon which all else is built.

The third stage is often filled with many “trial” experiences, which provide you with different perspectives on the various parts of who you are. You will move through the many layers of your Self. This may take the form of opening to different areas of life. The key here is your inner experience, the feelings and observations that you make regarding your outer experiences. You may try certain things that you find hold just a small piece of a much more complex picture, these are the ones to explore further. Imagine you have a key that opens a doorway leading to a world you never knew existed and the only entrance in is the key, in this analogy you can begin to understand the principles of the Self.    

The FOURTH STAGE of Self-Actualization is to GENERATE. With a strong foundation in place, the strength of which is determined by the previous stage, your perspective and understanding of the layers and principles of the Self will begin to develop. This stage, in which you may generate your Self, starts with an initiation. Expression from your Self begins, and you develop skills for bringing out what is deep within you. Production of energy is essential for moving through this stage. It is a working stage.

This stage is when you have the feeling, “this is what I am supposed to do with my life” and you begin to manifest it. You are clearing the path and doing the groundwork for what will come. You may spend significant time focused on different skills that you will need in order to move forward. You may also spend time strengthening and clearing many levels to allow the necessary energy to move through. There is an infinite source of energy that you can tap into and you determine the amount that you allow in.  

The FIFTH STAGE of Self-Actualization is to ARRANGE. This stage is when order begins to come into your expression, skills, and the energy of the previous stage. There is an organization of who you are. The main components of your Self begin to be defined. Awareness of the complexity of the interaction between your components and the joining points come in.

This stage is always marked by a significant change within your Self and is often marked by a significant change in your life. A move, a job change, a relationship shift, or a graduation from school, are some examples. You begin to understand the components that make up who you are. With the changes that come there is a shuffling of components into a more appropriate organization. Key points join to form the nature of your life.  

The SIXTH STAGE of Self-Actualization is the PROCREATION. This stage occurs when the beginning meets the end and the circle of who you are, becomes complete. The organization, components and points of the previous stage synthesize into a wholeness of Self. The creation process is received and drawn into the Self. Through this process the imprint is made but it lays latent until the next stage happens. 

This stage is a passageway, and it can happen in a moment or last for lifetimes.  It is when everything comes into a sphere. It all suddenly makes sense and fits together perfectly. All is possible in the reception to creation, and it is determined in this place of mystery what your imprint will be. It is a completion of what was and a beginning of what is to come. Time stands still and the depth of imprint will determine the depth of your experience.

The SEVENTH STAGE of Self-Actualization is the ACTUALIZATION. This stage happens when your imprint made in the previous stage is activated. Your Self begins to take form and shape. A reflection in which you may perceive the actualization is present. The evolution of your Self begins and continues until you transcend the Self.

Your Self is becoming your Self. A life lived as an expression of this stage of being is beautiful and flawless, the perfection within all imperfection is known. Life is the creation process unfolding before your eyes. You begin to know your Creator as you know your Self.  And all is within love. 

To actualize is to become a light in the darkness.

The Energetics of Self Actualization 

Actualizing one’s authentic Self is what I refer to as “THE WORK”. It involves learning life lessons, experiencing the full sensory pallet of life, relationships, creation and co creation. To accomplish this you must overcome your challenges, personal limitations and resistance. You must release attachments and expand beyond your conditioning to evolve into the full potential of who you are. 

The journey of Self Actualization is a shift from potential Self (point A) to actual Self (point B). There is a change in your Self that occurs over time. The energetics of the Self within the unfolding of time contains four of the 24 Life Components; your Essence, Soul, Gifts and Personality. In this section, I will be touching upon the changes that occur within each part of your Self as you actualize your potential.   

Essence 

Your Essence is your unique light array that contains the potential of you. It exists within the deepest part of you, largely unseen by others. As you Self Actualize your light becomes more and more brilliant. There is an expansion that occurs in the expression of your light. It shifts from the infinite density of a black hole with zero dimensionality and pure potentiality to a brilliant sun shining through the form of your Self and out into the world. 

Soul

Your Soul provides a home for your light, it is like your own personal lighthouse. When you Self Actualize your Soul crystalizes. This happens as you learn your Soul lessons. Soul lessons are pre-set within your Soul structure. They are like doorways to your Essence. Once activated a Soul lesson will magnetize life events designed to teach you what you came to learn. Once a lesson is learned that part of your Soul crystalizes, holding a unique shape and form while opening the door to allow the light of your Essence to shine through. 

Gifts

Your Gifts are essentially your natural abilities or qualities. Your Gifts are an outer world mirror reflection of your inner world Soul structure. If your Soul took the form of a movie reel, your gifts would be the shapes projected onto the screen. As you Self Actualize the picture of you expands and your scope increases. Your Gifts come into view with a steady sharpening of focus. The shape of who you are becomes more defined and the distinction of your natural abilities more pronounced.

Personality 

As you Self Actualize your Personality becomes a pure emanation of your light. Your Self as a whole becomes a vehicle for the expression of your Essence and your nature as a light being. The density and constriction of your conditioning, as well as fear and resistance all clear out to reveal the deeper parts of you. In my blog post, Attract The Life You Want With Your Magnetic Personality, I talk about the electromagnetic nature of your Self. I encourage you to check it out. It further discusses the energetics of the Self and it explains how you attract or magnetize the experiences that you need to evolve. 

Walking through Walls – Transforming Obstacles into Opportunities 

If you were to attempt to take your physical body and walk through a physical wall you would find yourself halted in your path and maybe a little bruised, but why? Because two identical particles, two fermions – the particles that matter is made of, cannot occupy the same point in space. 

The Pauli’s Exclusion Principle explains this phenomenon that applies to the realm of reality which includes the ‘matter’ of life. Matter has mass and it occupies space. This principle only applies to particles of matter which exist within the space-time continuum which are moving slower than the speed of light. 

The relationship between energy and matter is such that energy equals mass times the speed of light squared, Einstein’s famous E=MC2 equation which applies to particles within the space-time continuum. It is here where you connect with your humanity, in the part of reality where the fermions in your body cannot occupy the same space as the fermions in the wall because they are too slow. Here we find the worlds of differentiation where you can experience yourself in relationship to others through your sensory awareness. This would not be possible if you were to occupy the exact same point in space.   

I am going to talk a bit about the different states of matter, kinetic energy levels and how this all applies to the life components. You may not be able to ‘walk through’ a solid object like a wall of ice with your physical body but if the ice undergoes a phase shift from a solid to a liquid state the resultant water is child’s play to walk through. The point being that not all walls are solid and undergoing a phase shift by reappropriating the energy through the proper channel is one way to transcend life’s obstacles.

Subsequently, we will quicken our pace to faster than the speed of light and I will take you deeper into the subatomic level. Mass is made of energy but not all energy has mass. Moving faster than the speed of light we enter the quantum realm where we find the massless particles called bosons. The rules governing these particles are very different from the one’s governing the fermion-filled realm of matter. It is here where you connect with your higher consciousness and your divinity. 

STATES OF MATTER AND THE 24 LIFE COMPONENTS 

Matter can exist in four different natural states; solid, liquid, gas and plasma. As matter shifts from a solid to a liquid and then a liquid to a gas and finally a gas to plasma it increases kinetic energy. This means the particles are moving faster, increasing vibration, rotation and translation. The 24 Life Components, a Cube Model energetics template, is working with your life quadratics. This template provides us with six different holistic views of life and a roadmap to transcend the matter of life. As you perceive below the surface lens you will find that each view contains four life components that correspond with the four states of matter.   

Below I have included a chart of the Life Components with the corresponding states of matter that each represents. Each set of life quadratics follows this same progression with increasing kinetic energy as you move from the most superficial outer component of the set to the deepest innermost one. For example, looking at the Grid Lens which provides a view of the oneness of expression in life. The progression moves from your solid Physical body to your fluid Emotional body, then to your gaseous Thought (mental) body and finally to your plasmic Energetic body. This same progression applies to each of the six holistic views of life’s working components and their corresponding quadratic functioning. 

ENERGY FLOWS WITHIN THE CUBE AS FERMIONS AND BOSONS SPIN

With the 24 Life Components mapping the energetic expression of matter is only part of the contents within the Cube parameters. There is the fermion world and there is the boson world and they both coexist within the Cube. The difference between fermions and bosons lies within the particle’s spin. Fermions, the particles of matter, have a half integer spin while boson’s, the particles of the quantum realm, have a whole integer spin. Spin is a particle’s intrinsic angular momentum which determines the energy disbursement of the particle. In our dualistic world a spin can be clockwise or counterclockwise moving energy in one direction or the opposite. 

In the fermion world with half integer spins, the resultant wave function is antisymmetric whereas in the boson world, with whole integer spins, the resultant wave function is symmetric. This brings us to the framework of the universal models, taking the form of the platonic solids and encompassing sphere, they are symmetric and they reside within the massless boson world. The models provide the parameters, the limits within which you are able to create your life. 

The 24 Life Components template is a Cube model mapping. The Cube is the model of time which governs the force of nurture and the earth element. I spoke about this in my blog post: “Life’s Mysteries Disclosed”. “So it is not that each rock forms a perfect cube, but all the rock fragments put together, average out to be a cube. Thus, one must view the whole to be able to see, the unseen parameters, the universal framework that governs the physical matter of earth. Each rock fragment can deviate from the form to the degree that another rock fragment deviates in an equal and opposite manner, thus they average out to the perfect universal form of the cube.” In other words, each extension beyond the symmetric unity of all requires an equal and opposite extension to hold it in place within our fermion manifest reality. 

THREE CROSS FLOW STREAMS OF ENERGY 

I want to make a point about the crossflow energy within the Cube. The crossflows are up-down, left-right and front-back if you are to imagine the energy moving from the side of the Cube going inward, in all six directions. Each crossflow is an example of an equal and opposite balancing.

  • UNION LENS (the Receptive Oneness stream of energy flowing upward) crossflow with: LOCATION LENS (the Individual Expressive stream of energy flowing downward). This crossflow energy stream follows an ∞ “Infinity” flow of perpetual motion.
  • DISCLOSURE LENS (the Receptive Group stream of energy flowing left to right) crossflow with: SELF LENS (the Expressive Group stream of energy flowing right to left). This crossflow energy stream follows an ∞ “Circular” flow of perpetual motion.
  • SYSTEMS LENS (the Receptive Individual stream of energy flowing backwards) crossflow with: GRID LENS (the Expressive Oneness stream of energy flowing forwards). This crossflow energy stream follows an ∞ “Infinity” flow of perpetual motion.

CLEAR THE ILLUSION THAT YOUR OBSTACLE IS SOLID 

Most obstacles in life are not solid even though they can feel as tangibly blocking your objectives as if you came upon a brick wall that extended in all directions. But, the reality is that most walls exist on higher vibrational levels than the physical and there is nothing blocking your passage through except the illusion that the barriers are solid.  

REAPPROPRIATE THE ENERGY THROUGH THE PROPER CHANNEL/RECEPTOR/SYSTEM

I am going to speak about this as it applies to the Forwards-Backwards crossflow of energy, but I want to note that it applies in the same way to the other two sets of energy streams. Your Individual Receptive Systems (Body, Heart, Mind and Spirit) are built to process the Physical, Emotional, Thought and Energetic streams of energy respectively. These streams comprise the Oneness of Expression on planet earth. An important point here is that trying to process energy through the wrong system wreaks havoc. One common example of this is the failure to process Emotional energy in the fluidity of the moment, in which case it can settle into the Body and solidify activating disease processes in the Body Systems. 

The crossflow track for each component set has its own set of mechanisms governing the processing and integration of the energies. The obstacles within the different tracks respond best to different forms of interventions. If it’s a PHYSICAL WALL then it is solid and what you need to clear it is also solid, so get your sledgehammer. I watched my parents actually do this, make their way through a concrete wall with a sledgehammer when I was a child. It was quite impressive to witness. The physical is the densest and slowest to move but rest assured a sledgehammer is not always the means. When you incorporate universal balance it has a way of influencing the physical particulate.  

If it is an EMOTIONAL WALL then passage through is simply a matter of feeling the emotions. Emotional energy is fluid and emotions need to be    felt, allowed to flow through you and released. Americans are not particularly skilled at this. Ideally one is fully present and feeling emotions in the moment, but reality is such that is often not the case. Clearing these walls requires emotional fluidity. This can be evoked through therapeutic writing or talking about your life. It can also be stimulated through things like watching a live performance or heartfelt movie, playing a game or engaging in a creative endeavor. And my favorite, laughing, is great for clearing the emotional cobwebs.  

If it is a MENTAL WALL then utilize a mental exercise.  Mental walls are the makings of conditioning. They are conditioned thought patterns and beliefs that have become rigid and what I refer to as “Hard Constructs”. A friend refers to this energy web as your “domestication”. The most direct mental exercise is to use your Mind to imagine the wall disintegrating into thin air. But utilizing other mental exercises like working with an affirmation or reframing exercise will blow energy through a mental wall breaking up the density. 

If it is an ENERGETIC WALL then find a way to sense the wall and bring light in to dissolve it. Energetic walls are plasmic. Plasma makes up 99% of the visible universe. It glows and can be seen in the stars, nebula and our sun for a few examples. When clearing a wall on the energetic level a shift will be felt, this is often experienced as a sense of lightening or relaxation. You might feel relief, calm, peace or acceptance settling over you. Here we reach the highest kinetic energy level of matter. It is the final frontier as we approach the speed of light and the crossover point to enlightenment. Enlightenment comes when you spin your consciousness faster than the speed of light. This is the frequency at which your divinity resides. 

In the blog post “Plasma and Ascension – Becoming a Light Being” by Lisa Renee, she speaks about this evolutionary process. For clarity of terms you can think of ascension as referencing the energy flow and enlightenment as referencing the conscious experience, two parts of the same event. “During the Ascension cycle, the human body potentially goes through an alchemical process that generates the internal Plasma light. This is what builds the etheric Lightbody structure for the higher consciousness body to function.”  

THE QUANTUM REALM 

Once you have increased your speed to faster than the speed of light you cross over into the quantum realm. But only your consciousness can travel this fast, the physical matter of your body cannot. People who have died briefly and been brought back to life often report “seeing the light” as the veil is pierced and they are thrust into awareness of this realm. I am happy to say that you do not need to die or even leave your body to perceive beyond the veil into the quantum realm, or to become enlightened. It is all right here, right now within every point in the time continuum and space continuum alike. 

Time and Space are universal constructs that enable you to have differentiated sentient experiences, in the fermion world. While enlightening your higher consciousness, in the boson world, allows you to have sapient experiences. These two worlds are not really separate but rather like a speed boat on a slow moving body of water, they are simply moving at two different speeds. Consciousness though, is not limited to the confines of time nor space. In the quantum realm, the boson world, the rules are very different. I am going to talk about three of the properties of the quantum state (superposition, interference and entanglement)  and how these apply to your human (homo sapiens) consciousness. 

SUPERPOSITION – YOU HAVE MANY OPTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM        

Superposition is the capacity of a quantum system to be in multiple positions, shapes, states, arrangements… at the same time. That is until it is measured; one option is chosen and the matter is enlightened with this choice. The quantum realm is like a vast sea of potentiality that shimmers and glistens, each possibility awaiting recognition to be drawn into the mass filled world of sentient experience. When you approach a situation in life with consciousness working at the quantum level the full potential of the moment opens up to you. The vast array of new opportunities within the potentiality of your life are within reach. They simply need your conscious choice to come into being.

I suggest… you approach each moment in life open to the potential without limitation. Always consider the possibilities you can perceive and figure there are tenfold more that you cannot perceive. This simple adjustment in how you frame the world around you will align you with the quantum realm and the reality of your life. It will keep you open to your potential and positioned to seize it. 

INTERFERENCE – YOU ARE EMPOWERED WITH FREEWILL   

In the quantum realm particles can alter the direction of their own path, ‘at will’ it seems. They can cross their own track and become a force redirecting themselves in a new direction. This property is called interference. I understand the word choice to describe this, but the negative associations with the word make it somewhat deceiving when you begin to examine human consciousness. You too have this ability within your conscious being to act upon your own accord and change the course of your life, it is called your freewill. Freewill is humanity’s most underused source of power, in my opinion. The mechanism enabling this human gift is quantum interference.  

I suggest… you bring light into your being, your cells, your matter. It is the simplest act of interference with guaranteed positive results. Photons are light particles. They reside in the quantum realm with a spin of 1. When you increase your kinetic energy and raise your vibrational frequency by drawing light from within, it has the effect of en’light’ening the matter in your life. The half integer spins of your particles with mass unfolding in antisymmetric energy disbursements become held within the holistic framework of the balanced and symmetric universals when light is brought into the darkness.     

ENTANGLEMENT – WE ARE ALL CONNECTED 

In the quantum realm, two particles in an entanglement need not be near each other, yet their relationship is one of interdependence. Each has an indeterminate quantum state until it is measured and the mere act of measuring one particle determines the measurements of the other particle. In an article at the The National Library of Medicine, at pubmed.gov, it is stated that: Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon in which entangled systems exhibit correlations that cannot be explained by classical physics. It has recently been suggested that a similar process occurs between people and explains anomalous phenomena such as healing.” Personally, I have been utilizing this function of quantum entanglement for healing for over two decades. 

I suggest… you perceive humanity as a single organism. See yourself and others as individual cells within that organism. Utilize our interconnection to express your unique gifts within humanity in a manner that is for the greater good of all.

Employing the Infinite Flow to Fuel the Potency of Your Life

Abundance is a choice. Authentic expression is a choice. Seizing the potential within your life is a choice. Are you actively choosing these things? If so, then you are granting yourself access to employ the infinite flow in an ecological way. But what exactly is the infinite flow and how are you supposed to put it to work for you? The infinite flow is where the spark of your life force originates. It is the numberless stream of energy that vibrates at zero and contains all potential. 

You experience the infinite flow as the potential of your life unfolds over time into the actualization of your life. You exist within this stream of constant change and how you navigate it determines the experiences that you will have next. Ideally you will take charge of your life and fuel the potency of your conscious intentions. But this requires you to draw from a bigger energy source than yourself, the source from which you originate. To open the door to this bigger energy you simply need to express your truth, choose abundance and open yourself to the mystery within your life. This posturing naturally invites the infinite flow. 

Now as you stand on the threshold, the door open facing the mystery, you can begin to engage. The idea here is to form a relationship with the stream of constant change and energy sourcing your life. You must be in relationship with the infinite flow to utilize it to fuel the potency of your life. In other words, by opening to this energy stream you are empowering yourself to be able to make an impression and have more influence within your life. I am going to talk about three essential steps in this relationship dynamic if you are to seize the potential available to you at this moment. First you must FEEL the energy. Second, you must DIRECT the energy. And third, you must CONTAIN the energy. 

1. FEEL THE ENERGY

There is energy and there is consciousness. Everything in life, everything you can perceive is made of energy. Your consciousness is the part of you that is perceiving the energy. In some way you must perceive/sense/feel the energy of the infinite flow to be able to ‘grab a hold of it’ and utilize it. As you feel the energy and connect this feeling with your conscious intention, then you are able to exert an influence and effect change. One place to start feeling the energy is with your sensory awareness. Human beings have a vast range of sensory capacity along the whole vibrational range. From the dense relativity of the influence of gravity to the highest vibrations of the quantum realm. Next, is a list of sensory abilities, these are potential ways to sense the energy, followed by an exercise to practice feeling the energy. 

Ways to feel the infinite flow with your sensory awareness. 

  • See the infinite flow’s dense vibrations with your eyes. ‘See’ the higher vibrations with your clairvoyance.
  • Hear the infinite flow’s dense vibrations with your ears. ‘Hear’ the higher vibrations with your clairaudience. 
  • Smell the infinite flow’s dense vibrations with your nose. ‘Smell’ the higher vibrations with your clairalience.   
  • Taste the infinite flow’s dense vibrations with your taste buds. ‘Taste’ the higher vibrations with your clairgustance.
  • Touch the infinite flow’s dense vibrations with your skin. ‘Touch’ the higher vibrations with your clairsentience. 
  • Balance and orient within the density of the infinite flow with the vestibular system in your inner ear. Balance and orient within the higher vibrations with your telepathy. 
  • Position and perceive relativity within the density of the infinite flow with the proprioceptive system in your muscles and joints.  Position and perceive relativity within the higher vibrations with your clairempathy.
  • Regulate and sense internal drives within the density of the infinite flow with the interoceptive system in your gut and other organs. Regulate and sense internal drives within the higher vibrations with your claircognizance. 

Energy Exercise – Part A: Feel the Energy

Hold your hands up, in front of your chest, with palms facing about an inch apart. Feel the energy in your hands, feel the heat between your palms. Slowly move your hands further apart, like there is a rubber band holding them together providing resistance. Keep your palms facing as you bring them to about a foot apart. Feel yourself drawing energy from the infinite flow, filling the space between your palms as you draw them back. Then slowly move your hands back together, to within an inch of each other. Feel the energy compressing into an energy ball between your palms. Repeat this half a dozen times or more. Feel the energy growing with each repetition. 

2. DIRECT THE ENERGY

It is your consciousness that directs the energy. This may be a different muscle than you are used to using. But just like other muscles, using it makes it stronger and more defined. Some of the ways people direct the infinite flow are through creativity; artists, writers, musicians and performers will often tell you that a bigger energy is present, engaged and being directed through them as they undertake the creative process. It is also why live performances are more transformative than watching a video of the same show; the energy of the audience fuels the performance and becomes a part of the creative process. 

Healers direct energy to restore health and channels direct it to bring through information that will transform. Inventors and innovators draw from infinite potential and direct the energy into the creation of something new. But, utilizing the energy doesn’t mean that you need to create a whole new formation, as all of life is being generated anew each day. When you consciously choose where to direct the energy that you are able to sense/feel/perceive you are equipping your intent with the power of the infinite flow. It is the syncing of energy and consciousness that unlocks the potential. 

If none of the previously mentioned outlets are areas of expression for you, there are still many simple ways that you can draw from the infinite flow and begin to direct the energy. You can do this by setting intentions, saying affirmations, mantras or prayers as you have a feeling connection with the energy.  Working to clarify your motives, objectives and goals all work to direct the energy that you are feeling. I find it is best to dream big without attaching to the outcome. This way your true limits and the true limits in your environment will be revealed. And you will have avoided unnecessarily selling yourself short with self imposed limitations. 

Energy Exercise – Part B: Direct the Energy

Directing the energy to self: Take that energy ball that you have formed and move your hands to any part of your body needing some healing. Put your open palms on that part of your body, transferring the energy from your hands to where it is needed. If your body is in good shape then take the energy and place it into your diaphragm to enliven the essence of who you are or into your heart to fill yourself with love. 

Directing the energy to others or situations within your life: Take the energy ball and direct it towards another person, fully releasing the energy. The energy can be directed towards a person who is physically with you or one who is in another location. Simply open your hands and hold the other person in your consciousness. It is important to have only good intentions and not attempt to override another’s free will, when you do this. You can also send the energy towards a relationship or situation in your life that is in need of healing or balancing. 

3. CONTAIN THE ENERGY 

Consciousness is what shapes energy, it contains it and holds it into form. The universal forms encapsulate universal consciousness which shapes the foundation of our existence. These forms provide the greatest sustainability in creation. I spoke about how this works in my blog post: “Life’s Mysteries Disclosed”. The unique qualities of our particular lives as individuals in turn, are shaped by our human consciousness. It is important to note though, the more a creation adheres to universal principles and aligns with universal forms, the greater the potency of the formation. 

I often speak about an individual’s ‘Energetic Integrity’. This is referencing the strength of one’s constitution, their viability and sustainability. Containment of your life force plays a big role in your energetic integrity and your resiliency. It is one thing to draw from the infinite flow but the energy must also be contained for the full potential to be seized. In the infinite flow things occur very quickly on an energetic level compared to the rate of change on a physical level which can stretch over a much longer time period. By containing the full energy cycle within your consciousness you are ensuring the full actualization of the energy cycle in your life, as it unfolds over time. This prevents the energy from leaking or becoming dissipated. When this happens the energy enters the realm of unfulfilled potential, which becomes a part of your whole vibrational array and the landscape of your life. 

Energy Exercise – Part C: Contain the Energy

Expand your consciousness beyond the whole of this exercise. How did the energy feel that you gathered in your hands? How did you feel as you absorbed the energy or directed it towards another person or situation. You want to sense the whole cycle of movement that has been enacted and the ripple effect it has set in motion. Hold your conscious focus on the whole and the transformation/change/movement that has occurred within the whole. Hold this focus until stillness returns. Then, release your focus on the exercise.  Simply make a conscious note to yourself as you observe the energy unfold in your life over time. 

Choose the Life You Want and Dare to Live It

FIRST YOU MUST CHOOSE…

Do you know what you want out of life? If you get to choose and, in my opinion, we all get to choose much more than people typically realize, do you have clarity about what you want? What if you “want” things that are not good for you? Sometimes this can even be difficult to discern. The second serving of dessert might be an obvious bad choice, but not everything in life is that transparent. And what about other people, how do they figure into the equation in the choices that you make? Life is complicated but don’t be dismayed, decision making can be simplified. If you hold rigidly to simple principles and intentions based in universal balance while maintaining flexibility with everything else you can’t go wrong. So choose wisely!

To choose wisely means to choose that which is in your highest good, the highest good of humanity and the highest good of life on earth. This may sound like a lofty goal and you can’t possibly know what is in the best interest of everyone on the planet. But, if you adhere to basic universal principles you can be assured that your choices will be in the highest good of all. Nature is on your side with this one. If you stay on your evolutionary path, you will be set to overcome all the challenges that life throws at you and provokes within you. You will have the full force of nature backing you. Simply exercise conscious choice to stay balanced on your own path and take ownership of all your choices. 

CHOOSE TO ACTUALIZE – NATURE HAS YOUR BACK 

Human beings are naturally on a trajectory of self actualization. From the point of conception, when the physical manifestation begins, your human nature is a powerful force propelling you to actualize, as readily as a flower’s nature is propelling it to blossom. In the perfect stillness of the moment and “all time”, it has all already occurred at the point of conception. It simply needs the unfolding of time to be experienced. 

There was a belief circulating some years ago that only a small percentage of people were set to self actualize. This was a disservice to humanity as truly everyone is born to actualize their potential. Another disservice was perpetuated by a number of charlatans pushing the promise of self actualization as a money making scheme that provided quite the opposite of self actualization for its participants. 

Self actualization will occur as a matter of course unless there are forces to inhibit it. Forces can come from your external environment or from within you. As you confront different forces, each encounter will have a different impact. The impact can either support your natural evolution to self actualize or it can inhibit it. The focus here is on the inhibitory forces. An inhibitory force can be destructive or it can block access to your needs.  

An inhibitory force that is destructive, reverses your energy from its naturally creative flow to one that is damaging. For an external environment example, have you ever been in a good mood and on a productive track when you encountered someone who was not, only to find yourself pulled into an agitated state engaging in unproductive discord with the person? An inhibiting force that blocks will create a barrier on your path. It will compromise access to the resources that you need to survive and thrive in life. To give another external environment example, have you ever been full speed ahead when someone said something that stopped you dead in your tracks and made you feel punched in the gut, cut off at the knees or that it was impossible to proceed? Abusive relationships are full of these encounters. 

While you may not be able to override all of the inhibitory forces, outside of you within your environment, the universe is endlessly creative and where there is a will, there is usually a way. There are enough resources for you to actualize within your environment, trust this and be open to discovering where the available resources are. Consciously engage the universe in partnership. It is the true nature of the connection and there is no better co creator to have a relationship with than the universe . 

Then there are the inhibitory forces that come from within you impeding your self actualization. There is the internalized conditioning that creates a destructive flow. Note, there is also conditioning that supports one’s evolution but that is not the focus here. And there are the self imposed limitations that block your access to the abundance of inner resources available to you. These barriers are completely within your ability to overcome, but you must consciously choose to do so. Once again you can see how important free will choice is to your evolution and the realization of your personal potential. If you keep your focus on actualizing who you are within the tenets of intending highest good for all then you will stay in the creative flow and forward movement of your evolutionary path. 

AND THEN YOU MUST DARE TO LIVE…

Life necessitates courage as it occurs within the constantly changing arrangement of the time-space continuum. Living authentically in universal balance may be simple in principle and it is backed with powerful forces but it is not at all easy at times to stay the course with consciousness and vulnerability. As a starting point for this I am providing a list of traits of a self actualized person for you to emulate. This is followed by a discussion of how to overcome fear and transform your fear mechanism to make it work for you rather than against you. Irrational fear is the biggest inhibitor to your life that you have 100% ability to overcome. Fear is core to most self imposed limitations in life. Overcoming your fears is like granting yourself freedom to fully live.  

LIVE BY THESE FIVE OBJECTIVES THAT SELF ACTUALIZED PEOPLE LIVE BY

Following is a list of five objectives to live by. I will dive into these objectives  in more depth in a few months but I felt the importance of bringing this overview into the discussion. The realization of these objectives are evidenced in self actualized people. They are objectives to live by. Utilize the list to keep this focus. Live within this framework or set of parameters and it will support your own actualization. 

  • Face reality head on and accept it all. 
  • Live authentically with equanimity. 
  • Be creative as you fulfill your life’s purpose. 
  • Open with wonder & curiosity to life’s possibilities. 
  • Live by high moral standards and be of service.

SHIFT FROM SURVIVING TO THRIVING – TRANSFORM YOUR FEAR 

Fear is an authentic part of your human nature. It is a biochemical and emotional response to something that is perceived to be a  threat. When there is a real threat to your physical survival or psychological well being then the fear response is rational and protective. But when there is no real threat, then the fear motivated reaction is irrational and it leaves you vulnerable.  

Thus, when the threat is real the subsequent action is considered a “response”. This will protect you and propel you on your evolutionary path. And when the threat is not real the subsequent action is considered  a “reaction”.  This will inhibit your progress. One technique for overcoming your fear is to embrace the mechanism of your fear response and raise your vibration to transform this survival mechanism into one that helps you to thrive.

BEING IN “RIGHT RELATIONSHIP” WITH OTHERS 

When others trigger fear in you, do you respond aggressively ready to fight  or do you fawn trying to please in order to avoid conflict? People’s fear response to others will fall on the range between the polar opposites of FIGHT — FAWN. Both mechanisms serve to help you to survive in the face of real danger. As with many things in life these mechanisms have the capacity to direct your energy flow in a positive or negative direction. To keep these mechanisms functioning in a balanced way, always generating a positive flow to survive and thrive in life, be proactive about engaging them. 

The fight mechanism is important to be able to advocate for oneself and others, to maintain boundaries and express your spunk in life. Whereas the fawn mechanism is what allows you to be of service to others, to compromise and make peace. Engage the positive expressions of these mechanisms on a regular basis. And when you find yourself in the negative reaction to an irrational fear then use these guidelines (in bold text) as an intervention. Simply fill in your own specifics. 

STOP FIGHTING WITH … (people, places and things)

START FIGHTING FOR … (highest and greatest good for all)

A turnaround example would be: “I am going to stop fighting with Charlie and start fighting for a cooperative sharing of resources”.   

STOP FAWNING TO PREVENT … (what you fear) 

START FAWNING TO PROPEL … (highest and greatest good for all

A turnaround example would be: I am going to stop fawning to prevent Charlie from leaving and I am going to start fawning to propel an increase in my own support system. 

BEING IN “RIGHT RELATIONSHIP” TO LIFE  

When life triggers fear in you, do you respond by fleeing and running away from the danger or do you freeze, unable to move or act? People’s fear response to life will fall on the range between the polar opposites of FLIGHT — FREEZE. Both mechanisms serve to help you to survive in the face of real danger. And just as the fight and fawn mechanisms have the capacity to direct your energy flow in a positive or negative direction so do these. To keep these mechanisms functioning in a balanced way, always generating a positive flow to survive and thrive in life, be proactive about engaging them. 

The flight mechanism is important for perseverance, healthy disengagement and industriousness. Whereas the freeze mechanism is what allows you to be mindful, present and aware. Engage the positive expressions of these mechanisms on a regular basis. And when you find yourself in the negative reaction to an irrational fear then, once again, use these guidelines (in bold text) as an intervention. Simply fill in your own specifics. 

STOP FLYING AWAY … (from the challenges in your life

START FLYING TOWARDS … (the solutions for highest and greatest good for all)                                                                                  

A turnaround example would be: I am going to stop flying away from dealing with my finances by obsessively worrying about money and I am going to start flying towards the steps I need to take for financial security.  

STOP FREEZING OUT … (parts of yourself or others to isolate)

START FREEZING IN … (conscious connection with highest and greatest good for all) 

A turnaround example would be: I am going to stop freezing out parts of myself by distracting and dissociating and I am going to start freezing in a mindful, steady presence and focus on the task at hand.

Maneuvering the Space of Your Life – How Do You Slice Your Pi?

Pi is the constant we can reference when discussing space within our universe, which is expanding according to Pi. This is a dappling into the energetics of space. I will begin this exploration with some universal basics before diving into particular patterns and dynamics that I find regularly in balancing people’s energy fields. I will then close with commentary on the mapping and management of the energy of space as it relates to the 24 Life Components Time Map utilized during the 24 HR Attunements. 

HOW THE UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLE GOVERNING SPACE RELATES TO PI

Here I would like to introduce some fundamental universal factors that come into play when working with the energetics of space. 

Inversion Principle: The universal principle governing the spatial nexus is the inversion principle. This principle states that “The inversion establishes the existence of the impression”. The key to this principle is that the Part is equal to the Counterpart. As we approach the subject of space and how you maneuver through the space of your life we can look at this principle as it relates to the mathematical constant n or pi. 

Pi: If you are not a math buff this may be taking you back to grammar school math class. Pi is the ratio of the circumference of any circle to the diameter of that circle. Regardless of the circle’s size, this ratio will always equal pi. Pi is an irrational number and a transcendental one. In decimal form, the value of pi is approximately 3.14 but it’s true decimal representation goes on infinitely. Pi has great popularity and is celebrated around the world on March 14 or 3/14 as 3.14 are the first three digits of pi. Fun facts, this was Albert Einstein’s birthday and it is mine as well.

Inner-Outer Space: Now, as you consider the space of your life, what is space? Space is a three-dimensional (height, width, depth) extent in which objects and events occur and have relative position and direction. One of the spatial dualities: Inner Space and Outer Space establishes the extent and location. I am speaking about the human being in this context, thus, inner space is referencing the realm of the inner parts of a person. This realm lies within, just beyond the outwardly animated and manifest human form. The inner and outer realms are an example of a part and a counterpart within the spatial nexus. Each is an inverted expression of the other working together interdependently. This is why inner work on oneself is reflected within one’s outer life and vice versa. 

Positive-Negative Curvature in Space: Now we get to Pi within space. Pi is the circumference/diameter ratio when there is zero curvature in space. It holds the stillness and it can be utilized as a reference point for navigating space. In our real world space is curved. When the circumference/diameter ratio is less than π, you are in a positively curved space, such as a sphere; if it is greater than π, you are in a negatively curved space, such as a saddle. The positive and negative curvature of space are another example of the part/counterpart key of the inversion principle. The significance of this to you is that it determines whether you will be attracting other mass/energy to you as you will in a positive curvature or repulsing it away from you as you will in a negative curvature. 

THE TRUTH ABOUT SPACE

Following are five key points for balancing the energetics of space that regularly come into play when practicing energy therapy. 

  1. Where there is an imbalance there is always an equal and opposite imbalance.

In this situation, both the imbalanced part and the equal and opposite imbalanced counterpart need to be restored to balance for an energetic shift to be sustained. An example of this; if you are experiencing anxiety in one area of life you will simultaneously be experiencing a depressed state in a different area. By working holistically, with both the source of the anxiety and the depressed state, at the same time, you will increase your probability of success and the sustainability of the restored balance. 

Similarly, this point is fundamental with cancer treatment. Gene mutations cause cells to behave differently, dividing and thus growing out of control. It is a creative flow of energy that is misappropriated. There will be another area within the individual where growth is inhibited. I find my clients who engage a new creative flow of energy while suppressing the growth of cancer cells are more successful in moving beyond the cancer experience with less likelihood of relapse. 

A wonderful example of this at work; I acted in a play about breast cancer written by a breast cancer survivor. This was a very direct reappropriation of the creative flow from growing cancer cells to writing a play addressing the cancer topic. I love the synergy of this turnaround. One important point here is that the creative flow does not need to be in the arena of the creative arts, it simply needs to be creative in life and often it is expressed in the individual’s relationships. 

  1. An expanse in one direction automatically extends in the opposite direction to an extent of equal measure.  

During the first ten year research project and clinical trials, my subject base was filled with individual’s living in extreme states of imbalance. The research became a study of these extreme states and an exploration into how to restore these individuals to a state of holistic balance. In this study it became clear that when an individual was stretched into an extreme that the whole framework of the individual’s life needed to stretch to encompass a range that included the extreme as well as the opposite extreme. 

One example of this is a part of my story along with many other energy workers, channels and healers. The experience of trauma is an extreme experience in a destructive direction that can push one into a low vibrational/dimensional state of suffering. This trajectory of energy will have an opposite ray traveling in a creative direction to a high vibrational/dimensional state simultaneously. This opposite view, equally extreme, is the counterpart to the trauma and it can sometimes look like access to healing abilities. The work here is to encompass and embody both simultaneously. This will transmute the trauma experience into wisdom, as the individual expands and awakens.  

  1. The deeper you reside within your core the greater is your view of the space of your life. 

This is similar to the time element and how the greater your presence in the moment the more time consciousness is available to you. As such, if you are perfectly present in the moment it opens access to the perspective of all time. In the same way that presence relates to time, being in the depth of your core provides you with full conscious access to the space of your life. This occurs within your core, right at that point of origin where you touch upon the creative energies sourcing your life.

Working with the energetics of space will empower you to consciously maneuver through this universal element. The expanse of your scope is an equal counterpart to the depth at which you center yourself. This is important to remember when you are struggling to get perspective on a situation or some aspect of your life. If you find yourself spinning out trying to make sense of it all, the best solution might be to let it all go and deepen into your own core. Then approach the situation with your expanded consciousness. This new perspective often provides a clear view of the solutions.  

  1. Space is as unendingly paradoxical as pi is long.

Space is paradoxical in nature. A paradox is something that seems contradictory at first glance but in reality is true. This is another example of where the part equaling the counterpart can be seen from the group. The understanding of the truth of a paradox is perceived in the place of knowing. This place exists beyond your thoughts and the cognitive reasoning of your mind in the realm of energy that is perceived by your spirit. Space exists on the group level which functions differently than the individual and oneness. These exemplify a micro/macro type of likeness to each other. The group level on the other hand functions in a circular and cyclical way with its dualistic parts dancing in paradoxical rendering.  

Examples of this at play come into my work with clients on a regular basis. “You must surrender to become empowered and seize control over your life”. When you surrender, it opens you and allows access to more of your inner resources and the support of the universe. These are essential for success in life. “It is through facing your fears that your courage is activated”. This is true where fears are irrational barriers to what you know is in your highest good. And, “it is within your vulnerabilities that you will find your greatest strengths”. This exemplifies my second point that when our natural qualities and abilities are engaged in space that these will extend in both directions simultaneously.  

  1. The only way out is through.  

The only way to get out of a challenging experience, state of being or dynamic in life is to move through it. At least to get out permanently and not fall into the trap of repetition compulsion or another negatively cyclical energy flow. But, human beings are prone to resist, push aside, suppress, and avoid the full experiential scope of life’s events, particularly the onerous ones. Who wants to feel pain or grief… face rejection, judgment or the consequences of their own mistakes? These are not going to be the first choice if one were to make a list. But it is essential to experience the full range and scope of all of life’s events, to transform them into the wisdom learned from experience.

If we are to bring consciousness into the dance. You must bring full conscious awareness to where you are in this moment if you are to consciously choose where you are going. The journey from the first to the latter is created by the expansion that occurs when you learn the life lessons your soul is here to learn. So as you scan the space of your life both inner and outer and you recognize the need to clear out the old, heal the wounds, understand yourself and others then simply go to the learnings. Ask yourself, “what is the lesson in this life experience?” 

MAPPING THE ENERGETICS OF SPACE * SPACE MANAGEMENT

One of the well known practices of working with the energy of space is feng shui. Feng shui is an ancient Chinese art that involves the arrangement of things in an environment. Everything is made of energy and influences the flow of energy, thus the balanced organization of things in a space will balance the yin and yang energy flows which optimizes the chi (energy) in the space. Feng shui works with the correct presence and placement of five elements; wood, fire, earth, metal, and water to increase Chi and encourage wellbeing. The optimal placement of the five elements is determined by the energy map of space, called a bagua.

Inner and Outer Space relative to the 24 LIfe Components

The 24 Life Components chart, which can be found on the website, is an energy map of time. This cube model time map is followed during the attunement. But, there is a key spatial element within this chart that I want to point out. Each of the six energy streams viewed through the lenses include 4 components; two that reside within Inner Space and two reside in Outer Space. The Life Components in the chart below can be read from left to right, beginning with the innermost component and ending with the outermost component.

Neuroplasticity: How to Utilize Your Malleable Nature to Adapt to Your Current Environment 

WHAT DOES NEUROPLASTICITY HAVE TO DO WITH YOU?

Neuroplasticity is your physical brain’s ability to change over time in response to the complex array of varied influences you will encounter in the course of your life. Your brain is only one example of how your malleable nature works; one that is the focus of many current researchers. If you consider the plasticity of your brain, then expand your scope to also consider how these same principles apply to all the different parts of your being and you will begin to get a view of your capacity to change. 

The neuroplasticity of your brain is maintained throughout your lifetime. While the rate and scope of change appears greater during the maturation period, this is by no means the end of your neurological story of change as was previously thought. The malleability of your adult brain, your ability to chemically, structurally and functionally change your brain cells to respond differently to life is a natural part of your physiology, one that you will maintain for your entire lifetime. 

So why do we see so many adults stuck in the same groove, thinking the same thoughts and taking the same actions with little change or evolution occurring? It is usually rooted in fear and the human tendency to seek the familiar even when better options exist. How proactively engaged are you in your growth and evolution? I encourage you to be open to the full range of change available to you as you explore your malleable nature and consider how you wish to reshape your life. This will allow you to optimally adapt to your current environment. 

THE ABC’s of BRAIN HEALTH – TAKING CARE OF THE MATTER 

Your neurological well being is reflective of the energetic balance or imbalance of your brain functioning. Energy exists in a range that spans from the densest solids of matter to the highest vibrational frequencies. Your brain health begins with the physical matter of the brain and continues through all the vibrational frequencies influencing the brain. Exercising your brain is essential to continue to evolve, it really is a matter of using it or losing it.

How do you keep your brain healthy? 

  1. Proper hydration and nutrition.

Your brain matter is made primarily, about three quarters, out of water. This makes hydration primary to brain health. Proper nutrition is also essential. Malnutrition in children can cause permanent damage to growth and development. In adults both undernutrition and overnutrition negatively impact mood, energy and vulnerability to disease. Never underestimate the importance of these basics to health.

  1. Practice mindfulness and find your flow

Regular meditation has been shown to preserve the gray matter in your brain. I suspect this is the case with any mindfulness practice or activity that places you in a state of flow. The gray matter in your brain controls movement, memory and emotions. It is where you process information and sensory input. Presence in the moment keeps you physically present with brain integrity and capacity.  

  1. Keep learning and growing. 

Here is where the use it or lose it comes into play. Learning something new stimulates neurons in the brain which form new neural pathways and improve cognitive functioning. So never stop learning or engaging activities that spark you to step outside of your familiar zone. Don’t know where to start? Simply, do something, anything, different. This can be engaging a different thought, doing routine tasks in a different order or responding in a way you never have before. This will form new neural pathways in your brain and bring you one step closer to finding the changes that will benefit you. 

SHAPING CONSCIOUSNESS TO REFORM YOUR LIFE 

The form your life takes is determined by the interplay between your energy and your consciousness; it is a cross product of these two trajectories. The state of your consciousness in any given moment meets the range of your energy which then determines the path of your evolution. Consciousness has a range that is similar to energy, it begins with an unconscious state and extends to a fully enlightened state of being. Raising your consciousness to meet the energy of your life with greater dimensionality will change the form that your life will take and it will propel your path of evolution.                                                                                                                               

What is your best consciousness stance for malleability?

  1. Posture “as if…” the state you desire already exists.

This is where you want to “fake it till you make it”, as they say. Forming your consciousness to a particular shape, such as “I am happy” or “I am grateful” creates a mold for the energy of your life to fill. Think of your consciousness like a child’s sand mold and your energy like the sand. A note on posturing; it utilizes the holistic consciousness of your body, heart, mind and spirit, it is not just a thought. To give an example of this; I have a friend, who is also a channel, and she likes to ask groups to laugh out loud. The “fake” laughter inevitably provokes genuine laughter which has a transformative effect on the consciousness of the individuals and group alike. 

  1. Develop the “objective observer” part of yourself.

It takes courage to look reality straight in it’s proverbial face. But observing the truth of any situation allows you to make contact with the energy of it and this conscious contact with the energy of reality positions you to be able to reform and change it. When you can consciously perceive something’s true form you can then consciously perceive the shift to a new formation. Exerting your free will choice on this quantum level engages the influence of the observer effect. (Read more about the observer effect) Energy and consciousness have that yin yang, pushing of hands kind of relationship. Think of your observer part as if it is a potter’s hands molding the clay, which is the energy of your life, to be the shape that you desire. 

  1. Expect the unexpected; approach each day as if anything could happen. 

When you hold the mindset that anything could happen it keeps you alert to perceive much more of what is right in front of you. It also creates a conscious space for actualizing untapped potential. Let me explain this. Expecting the unexpected is like creating a vacuum chamber within you, a space that is supercharged with the void, the infinite potential energy of source. It is a blank space with all the resources you need to fill it in with your heart’s desire.

THE MALLEABILITY OF THE TRINITY OF YOUR LIFE 

I have spoken of the singularity of the brain as our beginning focal point. Then I have stretched out to discuss the energy and consciousness of that focal point. This is where freewill comes into play and can have an impact as you consciously utilize your malleable nature to effect desired change. Lets stretch out now to see how your malleable nature shows up within the trinity of your life.  

Individual

On an individual level we see all the biological ways that people are malleable in response to the environment, neuroplasticity is just one. There are genetic changes that alter the blueprint of your life. A genetic change is when there is a gene mutation, a change in the DNA sequencing, in one or more genes. These  are long term changes occurring within the generational flow. And non genetic changes that occur include longer-term permanent developmental adaptations and rapid temporary acclimatization. A developmental adaptation is when an organism modifies its phenotype, it’s observable traits, in response to the environment. This type of change becomes hard wired whereas acclimatization is a short term adjustment to the changing environment. Acclimatization enables humans to live in a vast range of environmental conditions. Human evolution is a fascinating story of human malleability. 

Group:  

On a group level we see all the cultural ways that people are malleable in response to life. The earth is covered with different societies containing quite an assortment of cultural expressions. Think about all the different languages, customs and traditions, religions, arts, forms of government and economic systems. Think about the media and social media influences to shape people’s lives. During our current times living in a global pandemic the coronavirus has presented an extreme, life threatening stressor. One that has exposed many cultural vulnerabilities and imbalances. Our need to respond to this threat has created a disruption to all of these cultural influences and demanded a change. It is very culturally revealing to view how different countries have been impacted dissimilarly and how cultural differences have influenced their responses. The most shameful of which in my opinion is how American culture has done so poorly despite having greater access to the tools and resources needed to respond. But the politically fueled divisive culture favored power and inequality over life itself. Now that the culture has been thrown into upheaval I am curious to see how it will reshape and reform going forward.   

Oneness:

Finally, on the level of oneness we see all the existential ways that people are malleable in response to life. Stepping back to view the whole of humanity as a single entity we can see the changing form. Think about all of the interactive systems integrating and differentiating transforming its shape. Then there is the whole ecosystem of the earth’s environment with its changing climate. The collective consciousness ultimately determines the path of change with each vote counting equally, on this level anyway it is so. Ideally the path carved out is one that transcends the inevitability and limitation of unconscious repetition. On the level of ‘the oneness of humanity’ this looks like the rise and fall of civilizations, progress and development

So how do you change in a way that you know is helping humanity to stay in the flow of evolution and out of repeating old mistakes? We shift from this macroview of the malleability of humanity and bring it back to the microview and malleability of individual people. Your individual human brain with its capacity for free will choice. You are choosing to fire neurons in the same old groove or making a different choice to create new neural pathways. But how can you know if that new neural pathway is going in the direction of evolution for humanity as a whole and not just a new experience for you while you repeat a familiar old human foible? The way to do this is to work with the universals and maintain universal balance as you engage your conscious evolution towards greater enlightenment. Just as the malleability principle carries through all of nature, not just human, the universals are the framework of balance for all things within humanity, earth’s ecosystem, our solar system and this galaxy. Thus, the framework of universal balance will provide a framework that ensures an optimized and sustainable path of progression for you that supports the evolution of humanity as a whole.

How to Love with Complete Abandon and Never Get Hurt

“I expect nothing as I open to experience the infinite potential of the moment and fearlessly connect with all.” – Rebecca

Have you ever had your heart broken? How did you respond? Did you shut down and ward off love or did you grieve and grow into your next loving bond? Has heartbreak left you jaded or cynical only partially showing up for your relationships? Love is the glue holding humanity together and the ultimate experience you can have in your embodied form. This includes all of your relationships, not just a primary love interest. But, if your capacity for love is limited then you are missing out on the best that life has to offer. 

So how do you give and receive love on all levels and not be hurt? Loving requires you to keep your heart open, allow your vulnerabilities to show and be sensitive to another’s vulnerabilities. This seems like a tall order in the emotionally risky world we live within. I assure you it is possible. The answer is to eliminate expectations and release attachments. Then posture yourself in a curious state of being and embrace all with a loving connection.

This is an ideal state of being and a goal to seek in each moment. You will not do this perfectly so please don’t judge the results, rather keep your focus on the goal in the next moment. It is not something you can pay lip service to either, you must truly be in this state to understand and experience the benefits. It is simple, yet not at all easy. 

One important note, before I dive into further explanation. You will still experience grief, the full emotional and sensory range of experiences. These are all a natural part of your human experience. They are not harmful when you simply allow them to be felt, experienced in the moment and released. Love, loss, sensing and feeling are the things that bring depth, richness and meaning to your life.

ELIMINATE EXPECTATIONS AS YOU POSTURE WITH CURIOSITY 

An expectation is a strong belief that something will happen or be the case in the future. It is when you rigidly hold onto an idea about what will happen and it becomes a measure against which reality is judged. This comes with many pitfalls and limitations. Whereas embracing a state of curiosity in which one maintains a strong desire to know or learn something, the possibilities are limitless. Curiosity postures you in an open state to receive more of the energy coming your way and the conscious focus to be able to recognize it. This is especially true of things that fall outside the realm of what your mind typically expects. Posturing this way creates a profound state of presence. 

Give freely of yourself and expect nothing in return. 

I am speaking here in terms of relationships and connection with other people. Not, the negotiated contract and exchange of work for money in the marketplace. But think about this for a minute; you show up for work, do the job you agreed to do and then you expect to be paid according to the terms of your contract. This typically goes according to the plan and if not there are the courts and laws to address the issue. 

Personal relationships though, are not so black and white. Think about your personal relationships, do you have unwritten terms and expectations of what you will receive in response to your investment in the connection? Most people do. Have these terms that you expect been discussed and agreed upon? Oftentimes, they are not. If you bring assumptions to your relationships the unspoken expectations are silently in your consciousness or subconsciousness until there is a violation. At which point you must face the discord between your expectations and what is occurring. But if you have no expectations you eliminate the inner discord and you are able to be more present with what is actually happening. 

When you are giving with expectations of reciprocity you are setting yourself up for negative feelings. Disappointment, hurt and anger are the most common. You are also at risk of missing a true appreciation for what you do receive because it falls into the mundane stream of what is expected. The alternative to this dire path is to open with curiosity to see how the offering of your time and energy is being received and the response that it evokes. Allow this to inform you about yourself and the other person and how you choose to subsequently interact. 

With no expectations at play, anything you do receive can be experienced as a gift, a lovely surprise. This means letting go of any score keeping, holding a “you owe me” in your mind or resentment towards the other person. Simply adjust your time and energy input in the relationship to a comfortable level of giving that is free of any strings. In working with individuals and couples I find that expectations are a primary source of disharmony in their relationships. 

Stay inquisitive about the human condition.

Everyone has their own history, patterns and willingness to exercise their freewill. Humans are complex and often unpredictable creatures. Another person will not respond or act the same way you would in any given situation. Release all expectations that they will. Personally this lesson has been one that took time, quite a bit of confusion and struggle before it really settled in. This experience prompted a deep desire within me to understand others and this motivation generated my research in applied energetics. The work has brought more love into my life than I could ever have imagined. 

To encourage love in your life, you want to posture yourself in a state of curiosity. Then inquisitively observe how others respond to you and life in general. Clear your mind of all preconceived notions and assumptions. Notice how their response is as expected and where it is not, this will inform you as much about yourself as the person you are perceiving. Stay curious about it all. Engage each moment with the sentiment: “I wonder what will happen next… Anything could happen… I don’t know what will happen but I am going to stay present and actively observe to find out”. This keeps you open to perceive the unexpected.  Keep the observer part of yourself also noticing how you respond to the process of this reposturing, to others and to life as it unfolds. 

ATTACHMENT VERSUS CONNECTION – CHECK YOUR MOTIVE

Always connect with love, never fear, to all in your life. Identify and eliminate all of your attachments. In this context, attachment is referencing a FEAR based bond while connection is referencing a LOVE based bond. Fear can be a great motivator. But, when action is taken with fear being the motivation, the outcome is inherently laden with constriction and a negative spin. There is an unnecessary loss of energy and stressful consequences will manifest. In contrast, when love is the underlying motive the outcome is creative and regenerative. This is not to say that what one intends will always occur. But with a loving motive, provided it is maintained, the optimal path and connections will be revealed and the right action will be found. Fear Not, Sense Only Love and Proceed!

Fear separates you from yourself, others and any loving connection. 

Fear inherently produces separation and human suffering. The energy of fear creates a negative spin which brings constriction and density to the energy field. Attaching with a fear based bond to anything; a person, place, thing, idea, activity… will always put the desired outcome at risk. And regardless of whether the action taken with this motive is “successful” or not, there will always be a price to pay. 

A common example of this in our society occurs around work and money. If fear of lack is what motivates you to get up and work hard, you may indeed make lots of money but the stress of being in this state will compromise your health and shorten your life. The alternative is to embrace all aspects of work with love. This is easiest and best if you are doing work that you naturally love. But if this is not the case, then it is even more important to find love based motives. This could be working to take care of loved ones or oneself. Or, it could be a matter of connecting in love with your coworkers and other people you encounter during work.  

In relationships, engagement with others from fear creates a barrier to intimacy and it blocks love. Do you ever do things because you are afraid of losing your bond with someone? Do you behave inauthentically or withhold because you are afraid of how someone will respond or what someone will think of you? Anytime fear is the reason behind your choices and actions it constricts the possibility of the exchange. Have you heard the quote, “If you love somebody, then let them go, if they return they were always yours. And if they don’t, they never were”. This is the sentiment in which you ideally want to hold all facets of all of your relationships, especially those closest to you. Love deeply as you hold them ever so gently in the moment.  

Love is a courageous endeavor; not for the faint of heart. 

Love is always the better choice. Love is real, intimate, creative and the only way to truly bond with other humans. So why don’t people choose it? Because it requires courage to override fears and stay in the vulnerabilities of love. It means you need to assume ownership and responsibility for your thoughts, feelings and grief. And you need to stay current with processing these energies to be present in the reality of the moment. 

If you attach responsibility outside of yourself, you will become entangled in a fear laden struggle which will disempower you and block your potential for connection. Likewise, unresolved grief forms an attachment to the past that also presents a barrier to love. Loss is an inevitable part of life. This makes grief an essential skill. There is the quote “Sometimes when a heart breaks, it breaks open”. I began to explore the meaning of this after a particularly difficult breakup. I found that when I fully allowed my grief to be felt and released there was an expansion that occured. The energy of my heart space becomes bigger and my capacity to love greater.

In speaking of the capacity to love, it is important to note that fearless love must begin with you. You are only able to love others to the degree that you are able to love yourself. This places self love at the core of loving with complete abandon. Do you allow fear to inhibit your experiences in life or stop you from doing things that would be beneficial to your growth or general well being? Do you do things that are not good for you because of fear of what will occur if you don’t? The way to posture here is; “I fear not as I am fully present and open. I first love myself unconditionally, experiencing all that is occurring in this moment. Then, I love others with complete abandon.”
