Love Without Rules

Love Without Rules

HD-Couple-Hugging-e1337603052118

What if the love the we share with that special person really has nothing to do with them?
What if we are just looking for the right setup, love rules, trust and circumstances to express the love that is already inside our hearts?
What if we threw caution to the wind, let go of the rules and just loved that way all the time? No reason, no fear and just let it all hang out…

I’ve thought about and asked these questions a few times in my life.
I’ve realized that it doesn’t matter who I choose and whether I think the circumstance are “right” to be vulnerable and share my love.  It takes courage and a longing for something deeper to love beyond our own rules, control and expectations.

When we put our expectations on others to act and react the way we would, we take away the possibility of ever experiencing true and authentic love.  Loving isn’t about trying to mould another to fit our image of who and how we think they should be. Love is about coming from that place that is never unwavering by another. A place that is and has always been inside of us. A place we can access anytime, anywhere and whenever we choose to connect with it.
There’s no ego, no rules, no expectations, just vulnerability and authentic love, compassion, kindness and nurturing for ourselves and others.

Find, remind yourself, come back to or let go of whatever you have to so that your beautiful heart is felt by anyone who crosses your path. That love is not meant to be shared with only one or a few, it’s meant to be shared with the whole world.

At the end of the day it’s really about who you CHOOSE to share your love with and that it’s not something that is only reserved for that one man or woman that meet all your rules of love. You can love anyone that deeply no matter who they are.

Don’t wait for the perfect person or circumstances to share your love. Choose to love because that is your true nature and what has always been inside of you.

Getting To The Heart Of Manifesting

Getting To The Heart Of Manifesting

heart1

Manifestation – it’s on the minds and lips of most everyone today who studies, practices, and has committed to what we call “New Age Thought.”  The SecretThe Power of Now, and even classics such as Peale’s The Power of Positive Thinkingand Hill’s Think and Grow Rich have u-turned many back to the origins of the “you create your own reality” edict, all proclaiming that our thoughts indeed have power to create. Be in the moment, visualize your dream reality and you can make it so.  All of these mantras do have validity, but there is one key ingredient; perhaps the single most influential conduit to consciously creating our reality – the heart.  But how and why is the heart of the human being – the magical rain maker, the instrument that has apparent non-local ability to pull “stuff” out of the ethers and into the 3D world?

First, it behooves us here to have a brief think about the law of attraction (LOA), whereby the proclamation of like attracts like is a fundamental tenet of the universe.  Another idiom – Energy goes where attention flows, and so on.  As Lisa Nichols explains in The Secret that if you open an envelope expecting to get a bill, chances are that is exactly what you’ll find.  Conversely, if you have an expectation (the thought) of receiving a check in the mail – voila, your thought will manifest that long awaited tax refund that was 3 months late.


The Real Secret is:  There is more to the story…

The Secret no doubt served as an important primer, indoctrinating millions into a new (or re-newed) way of contemplating their every thought and moved those toward a proactive routine of abundance creation using picture scrapbooking and visualizing images that can stir up the energy to attract that very object or scenario.

Thoughts are a powerful precursor to creating one’s reality, but if you look at instances in which thoughts, especially those which were redundant, created an outcome that seemed to correspond perfectly to the thought, what was behind it?  The feeling!

Let’s look at that.  Have you ever taken notice of the feeling that comes every time you think of something that you may be anticipating?  Something you are worrying about will bring a feeling of anxiety.  Something that you are looking forward to like a vacation will bring a feeling of excitement.  It’s a physical sensation that corresponds with the thought.  If it’s an authentic thought, you can’t escape the feeling.  Have you ever taken notice of how you feel when you receive news that may be shocking or unexpected?  Your heart will emit a physical vibration, whether it’s a pounding of fear or surprise or a fluttering when you’re around someone that you are attracted to.  How do you feel when you are in absolute gratitude about something that has been given to you that you’ve always wanted or when you are absorbed in sadness from a tear jerker on TV or the grief over a departed loved one?  The heart has a physical sensation that is associated with every emotion that we carry – and that may be the key to how and why realities manifest via the heart.


The Heart Has Intelligence

Most are familiar with the perennial wisdom of James Allen’s “As a Man Thinketh” which was borrowed from the biblical text that says “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”  The intimation with this brief passage is that the heart apparently has some ability tothink and have consciousness.   From this passage we can deduce that “he” will become that which he thinks (feels, emotes) from the heart – his reality, circumstances, lot in life et al.

An interesting study conducted by the Institute of Heartmath (www.heartmath.org) revealed that from an electromagnetic perspective, the heart carries at least 50 times more energy electrically and 5,000 times more magnetically than that of the brain, making it the single most powerful energy generator in our bodies.  Simply put – this means it has juice!

When you look at the field of possibilities; that which exists in the invisible realm that many have simply called “The Field,” or “The Zero Point Field,” you can reason that somehow our consciousness, that which was born out of this field, is still connected to it, but there must be some sort of conduit or energy string that allows for that connection.  There are numerous accounts throughout history that have anecdotally yielded a curious phenomenon that point to the fact that many of our greatest inventions, artistic creations and even prophecies were gleaned from some connection to this invisible albeit authentic realm.  In nearly every case of these magnanimous manifestations, the experiencer will speak of their being in a state or feeling of focus, bliss and emotional abandon which precipitated a synchronization with the Universe.  Subsequently, the answer to a perplexing mathematical problem would be realized, or a flow of musical inspiration would dance its way onto a sheet of paper, culminating in a grand and complex symphony.  Have you ever noticed how you feel while listening to a powerful symphonic piece, all instruments in perfect symmetry and synchronization?  It’s as if the original emotion that was used to put the pieces of the musical construct in order affected our own electromagnetic field which of course is received chiefly by the heart!

It seems that the heart acts as a transmission antenna of sorts, broadcasting via intense feelings, which strengthens the electromagnetic field and thus broadcasts the thought, intention and visualization into The Field.  The Law of attraction then kicks in whereby the Universe acknowledges this broadcast and boomerangs it back into the physical realm in the form of the manifestation.  This you might call the law of reciprocity. 


The Harmonic Spectrum

In David Sereda’s documentary Quantum Communication, it talks about the importance of coherent or harmonic sequence as it relates to the electromagnetic frequencies that the heart emits.  If you are in a state of fear, anger or sadness the heart will produce an incoherent electromagnetic pattern and thus weaken the transmission of thoughts and feelings into the field, usurping our ability to manifest our positive desires.  However, if one is centered within feelings of unconditional compassion, gratitude and love, the opposite will be true, thus creating a strong and harmonic resonance with this field.  A cooperation then ensues and manifestation is primed to take place within one’s physical reality.

Penney Peirce, author of the book Frequency – The Power of Personal Vibration, talks about the impact that the raising of the earth’s frequency is having on the quickening of manifestations, either consciously or unconsciously.  She said, I think (instant manifestation) is absolutely happening and I think in order to really get it to happen, we have to let go of thinking that things occur through cause and effect.  Time used to be linear and it’s not anymore.  Now it’s spherical; it’s all in the moment.  If you get an idea, it’s in there with you and all you have to do is put attention on it and keep attention on it.  You don’t even have to usein-tention because that’s willpower and willpower doesn’t work.  Soft attention is what brings things in – love brings things in, not force.  When you think of imagination like a little movie that you want to picture yourself in, you get in it and you feel it.”

“Feel it.”  That seems to be the secret key to manifestation of all kinds.  Now there is science that appears to be backing this process.  There is a physics to manifestation and its equation lies within the heart.

So next time you set aside a few precious moments to practice manifesting, get to the heart of the matter – the force of materialization literally lies within!

10 Scientific Studies That Prove Consciousness Can Alter Our Physical Material World

10 Scientific Studies That Prove Consciousness Can Alter Our Physical Material World

Image

Nikola Tesla said it best, “the day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. To understand the true nature of the universe, one must think it terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Swami Vivekananda influenced Tesla’s work, an Indian Hindu monk and chief disciple of the 19th century saint Ramakrishna. Tesla was also influenced by other Vedic philosophies.

Science works best when in harmony with nature. If we put these two together, we can discover great technologies that can only come about when the consciousness of the planet is ready to embrace them, like free energy.

I want to make it clear that my intention of presenting this information is to demonstrate that thoughts, intentions, prayer and other units of consciousness can directly influence our physical material world. Consciousness can be a big factor in creating change on the planet. Sending thoughts of love, healing intent, prayer, good intention, and more can have a powerful influence on what you are directing those feelings towards. Fukushima for example, if a mass amount of people send their thoughts and good intention to our waters, we can help mitigate the situation. These concepts can be used on a mass scale as one human race with one intent in their hearts, for multiple problems, as well as individual situations in our own lives. When our consciousness starts to merge into one as a collective, and we all start to see through the same eyes, we will begin to transform the world around us. I believe we are currently in this process.

For quite some time now, physicists have been exploring the relationship between  human consciousness and its relationship to the structure of matter. Previously it was believed that a Newtonian material universe was the foundation of our physical material reality. This all changed when scientists began to recognize that everything in the universe is made out of energy. Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vorticies of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating. Matter, at it’s tiniest observable level, is energy, and human consciousness is connected to it, human consciousness can influence it’s behavior and even re-structure it.

“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real” – Niels Bohr

“The hypothesis of modern science starts from matter as the basic reality, considering space to be an extension of the void. The phenomenon of creation of stable cosmic matter, therefore, goes beyond the scope of present science. The theory also neither pinpoints the source of cosmic energy that resides in the structure of matter, nor can it explain the cause of material properties that are experienced with the behavior of matter.  These are, in brief, the limitations of modern scientific theories at the most basic level of the physical phenomena of nature. When a scientific theory cannot cope with the question of the very origin of the universal matter and energy, how could it ever grasp and explain the phenomenon of consciousness which is evident in living beings?” – Paramahamsa Tewari (0)

The revelation that the universe is not an assembly of physical parts, but instead comes from an entanglement of immaterial energy waves stems from the work of Albert Einstein, Max Planck and Werner Heisenberg, amongst others.

 

1. The Quantum Double Slit Experiment

Image

The quantum double slit experiment is a great example of how consciousness and our physical material world are intertwined. One potential revelation of this experience is that “the observer creates the reality.” A paper published in the peer-reviewed journal Physics Essays explains how this experiment has been used multiple times to explore the role of consciousness in shaping the nature of physical reality. (2)

In this experiment, a double-slit optical system was used to test the possible role of consciousness  in the collapse of the quantum wave-function. The ratio of the interference pattern’s double slit spectral power to its single slit spectral power was predicted to decrease when attention was focused toward the double slit as compared to away from it. The study found that factors associated with consciousness significantly correlated in predicted ways with perturbations in the double slit interference pattern.(2) For visual demonstration of this experiment, click here.

“Observation not only disturbs what has to be measured, they produce it. We compel the electron to assume a definite position. We ourselves produce the results of the measurement.” (2)

“A fundamental conclusion of the new physics also acknowledges that the observer creates the reality. As observers, we are personally involved with the creation of our own reality. Physicists are being forced to admit that the universe is a “mental” construction. Pioneering physicist Sir James Jeans wrote: “The stream of knowledge is heading toward a non-mechanical reality; the universe begins to look more like a great thought than like a great machine. Mind no longer appears to be an accidental intruder into the realm of matter, we ought rather hail it as the creator and governor of the realm of matter. Get over it, and accept the inarguable conclusion. The universe is immaterial-mental and spiritual.” (R.C. Henry, “The Mental Universe” ; Nature 436:29,2005) (1)

 

2. Government Sponsored Psychokinesis Experiments

Psychokinesis, also known as PK, encompasses the possible influence of human consciousness on the behavior of physical or biological systems or processes, and comprises several loosely related classes of effect characterized by different scales of energy, forms of manifestation, replicability and statistical behavior. (3)

In 2004, a United States Air Force research project declassified a paper titled Teleportation Physics Study, authored by Eric Davis, Ph. D., showing that psychokinesis and other parapsychological phenomenon have been subject to rigorous research and documentation by several researchers and institutions. (4)

One particular example was the work of professional aerospace engineer Jack Houck, along with Army Colonel J.B. Alexander. They were responsible for holding a number of PK sessions, where attendees were taught the PK induction process and how to initiate their own PK events using various metal specimens like forks and spoons. Individuals were able to completely bend or contort their metal specimens with no physical force being applied whatsoever. (5)

These events were held for government science advisors and senior military officials. They took place at the Pentagon, at officers’ and scientists’ homes, and at U.S Army Intelligence & Security Command locations all over the world. Commanding generals, colonels and more were always in attendance. What was witnessed by all was spontaneous deformation of mental  specimens, which caused “a great deal of excitement” amongst those present. (4)

“We will need a physics theory of consciousness and psychotronics, along with more experimental data, and discover the physical mechanisms that lay behind the psychotronic manipulation of matter.” (4)

 

3. The Global Consciousness Experiment/Random Number Generators

Image

The global consciousness experiment is an international, multidisciplinary project between multiple scientists and engineers.(7)(8) It originates from Princeton University, in conjunction with the Institute of Noetic Sciences. It collects data constantly from a worldwide network of physical random number generators located all over the planet. The data is transmitted to a home base, which now has more than 15 years of data stored in it.

“Our purpose is to examine subtle correlations that may reflect the presence and activity of consciousness in the world. We hypothesize that there will be structure in what should be random data, associated with major global events that engage our minds and hearts.”(7)

RNGs are systems created by Princeton researchers that are sensitive to and respond to the intentions of individuals, in other words, the influence of consciousness. They also respond to marked shifts in attention occurring in their environment. Peaks of order are commonly recorded during moments of shared attention and emotions. RNGs also responded, and had the largest effects ever recorded by the Global Consciousness Project during major world events, like 9/11. (6)Other large recordings have occurred on presidential inaugurations, tsunamis and the deaths of public figures. These findings stirred deep questions about the nature of consciousness and it’s connection to our physical material reality.

4. NSA/CIA Remote Viewing Experiments In Conjunction With Stanford University

Remote viewing is the ability of individuals to describe remote geographical locations up to several hundred thousand kilometers (even more) away. This concept has been proven, demonstrated and documented a number of times.

In 1995, the CIA declassified and approved the release of documents revealing its involvement in the program that lasted for more than 25 years. (10) (9)

Ingo Swann, one participant in this experiment was able to view specific rings around Jupiter before NASA was about to take pictures of it with their pioneer 10 craft. This was documented in the research. Individuals were also able to view objects and people in separate rooms that were completely blocked off from their present physical location. The fact that some have/ had the capability to project their consciousness elsewhere from their present physical location is quite amazing.

These projects occurred for decades, while some of the mainstream world continued to view them as “pseudoscience,” the Department of Defense takes them extremely seriously, and keeps them extremely secret. This program was part of a program called “STARGATE” and was unexpectantly shut down. (11)

5. Thoughts and Intentions Alter The Physical Structure of Water

Image

Experiments over the past four decades have investigated whether human intention alone affects the properties of water. (12)

This question has been around for a while in the alternative medicine realms, because the human body is made up of approximately 70% water. According to the Institute of Noetic Sciences, researchers have suggested that intentionally influenced water can be detected by examining ice crystals formed from samples of that water. Consistent results commonly point to the idea that positive intentions tend to produce symmetric, well-formed, aesthetically pleasing crystals, and negative intentions tend to produce asymmetric, poorly formed and unattractive crystals. (12)

If thoughts and emotions can do this to water, just imagine what they can do to us.

Many people point out that this experiment was a fraud, but it’s been conducted multiple times and replicated by some highly respectable individuals in the field of science. The paper I am citing here is from Dean Radin, who has published multiple research papers in peer-reviewed journals. The experiment was conducted at the Institute for Noetic Sciences and Adjunct Faculty in the Department of Psychology at Sonoma State University. (12)

This also correlates with a study that examined the role of intention and belief on mood while drinking tea. It explored whether drinking tea “treated” with good intentions by monks would have an effect on mood more so than drinking ordinary tea. The study was done under double-blind, randomized conditions, and results proved positive. (13)

 

6. The Placebo Effect

It’s been well documented that we can change our biology simply by what we believe to be true. The placebo effect is defined as the measurable, observable, or felt improvement in health or behavior not attributable to a medication or invasive treatment that has been administered. It suggests that one can treat various ailments by using the mind to heal. Many studies have shown that the placebo effect (the power of consciousness) is real and highly effective.

A Baylor School of Medicine study, published in 2002 in the New England Journal of Medicine, (1) looked at surgery for patients with severe and debilitating knee pain. Many surgeons know there is no placebo effect in surgery, or so most of them believe. The patients were divided into three groups. The surgeons shaved the damaged cartilage in the knee of one group. For the second group they flushed out the knee joint, removing all of the material believed to be causing inflammation. Both of these processes are the standard surgeries people go through who have severe arthritic knees. The third group received a “fake” surgery, the patients were only sedated and tricked that they actually had the knee surgery. For the patients not really receiving the surgery, the doctors made the incisions and splashed salt water on the knee as they would in normal surgery. They then sewed up the incisions like the real thing and the process was complete. All three groups went through the same rehab process, and the results were astonishing. The placebo group improved just as much as the other two groups who had surgery.

The placebo group improved just as much as the other two groups who had had surgery.

Another great example of the placebo effect came from the United States Department of Health and Human Services in 1999. The report discovered that half of severely depressed patients taking drugs improve compared to the thirty-two percent taking a placebo. Don’t forget about all of the side effects and dangers that have been associated with antidepressants every year. Don’t forget that the ‘depression industry’ alone is a multi-billion dollar one.

A 2002 article published in the American Psychological Association’s prevention & treatment, by University of Connecticut psychology professor Irving Kirsch titled, “The Emperor’s New Drugs,” made some more shocking discoveries(15)(16). He found that 80 percent of the effect of antidepressants, as measured in clinical trials, could be attributed to the placebo effect. This professor even had to file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to get information on the clinical trials of the top antidepressants.

7. Teleportation

“It became known to myself, along with several colleagues both inside and outside of government, that anomalous teleportation has been scientifically investigated and separately documented by the Department of Defense.”

A paper published in the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) in September 1981, in the journal Ziran Zazhi (Nature Journal)tilted “Some Experiments on the Transfer of Objects Performed by Unusual Abilities of the Human Body” (Shuhuang et al., 1981) reported that ‘gifted children,’ were able to cause the teleportation of small, physical objects from one place to another.(4) Objects included watches, horseflies, other insects, radio micro-transmitters, photosensitive paper and more. The participants never touched the objects beforehand. The experiments were done under both blind and double-blind conditions, and the researches involved came from various colleges and sectors of the Department of Defense. This is an exceptional case, because it was deemed necessary that an unclassified Intelligence Information Report be prepared for public viewing.

More research was done by the Aerospace Medicine Engineering Institute in Beijing, in July of 1990. It was published in the Chinese Journal of Somatic Science (Kongzhi et al., 1990: Jinggen et al., 1990; Banghui; 1990). This study reported several experiments involving high speed photography video taping, which was able to capture the transfer of test specimens like nuts, matches, nails, pills and more through the walls of sealed paper envelopes, sealed glass bottles and tubes, sealed plastic film canisters and more without the walls of any of these containers being breached.  All of these experiments reported using gifted children and adults to cause the teleportation of various materials.  (4) You can read more on teleportation here

 

8. The Science of The Heart

 

Image

The heart generates the largest electromagnetic field produced in the body. Researchers have analyzed the spectrum analysis of the magnetic field that’s produced  by the heart, and results have shown that emotional information is encoded into this electromagnetic field. So, by shifting our emotions, we are changing the information that is encoded into these electromagnetic field that are radiated by the heart. This can impact those around us. When we are feeling emotions of compassion, love, gratitude and understanding, the heart beats out a very different message.

For more, please visit the Institute of Heartmath. 

9/10 And Beyond

There are numerous studies documenting how consciousness and our physical material reality are intertwined, in so many different ways, with many different examples like the ones listed above. I am going to leave you with a long list of selected peer-reviewed journal publications on Psi research. This involves anomalous processes of information or energy transfer, telepathy and other forms of unexplained phenomenon that have observable, repeatable outcomes in the lab.

Click HERE to continue your research on how consciousness and our physical material world are interconnected.

Consciousness plays a very important role in changing our planet. Just having these thoughts alone would contribute to the massive shift in consciousness that’s occurring. Find your inner peace, be peace, be love, acting and living your life from such a place plays a very important role in changing the world.

What Is Love?

What is love? 
Image
When all the games and dramas and stories are done… when one reaches a level of awareness and awakening where one sees in a truthful manner… all that can be left is love. You can love only when you do not possess…. when you are not envious or not greedy … when you can be honouring and respectful no matter what the situation… when you can have compassion that comes from a loving heart…. and not from the mind. When you have consideration for all those in your presence… you are touching true love.Love is not something we can do. It is not something that we can cultivate or practice. True love is a happening…. it is becoming a part of the river that is flowing.. full of a force and energy that overwhelms us. When it happens it happens. It is something that is so real and true and all encompassing that it literally takes over…. it moves us into a very high state of consciousness where there is only it. We drop the stories… and all the illusions.


Image

When everything else stops… and we move into this state… then we will experience true love. We move from a unique and separate individual…. to one who is a part of the magnificent whole… where there is no separation … but rather a knowing and feeling and understanding that this whole is life… we move from loving in the mind to experiencing love in the heart.
Loving as a concept is often the source of many of our actions or motivations. Can love that is driven from the mind be the source of truthful living? We are often driven by the needs, the insecurities, the ramifications of the mental process…. we like to think that this is life lived authentically… but is it? A decision based out of the illusions of the mind can only lead to more doing… more distraction… helping to spin the ongoing story of seperation that we believe is our life. It is awareness that reveals the motives… the agendas ….. the paradoxes… and all we need to do is that… be aware…. and soon all of these ploys of the ego begin to naturally fall away… they do not hold their strength or power over us. So begins the process of not wanting or needing to change your mind… but allowing it to be without any resistance or effort to change. We can look at it and see that we have a freedom with the mind. It is still there, but has none of it’s power that it once held.

And it is very difficult to experience that because the thinker is habitually there, evaluating, judging, condemning, comparing, identifying. Can we slow down our experience enough to be able to witness our habitual processes? To evaluate the patterns …. to realize that some of our decisions are coming from a mindset that was established long ago… and to realize that we have succumb to this way for most of our life?

221913-stock-photo-love-dark-bright-heart-glittering-open

This is the process of awakening.Decisions that are heart based are not really decisions as we believe them to be. A great spiritual teacher once said, “this is life happening automatically”. This is when we naturally flow with life… where we cease to resist what is happening …… when we open to the truthfulness and fullness of being.

Love is where there is neither one nor many…. where there is only love.

It is here that we can experience unconditional peace, bliss and happiness.

And as we are all learning…. love is not something we can get or do…. love is the benediction of the Divine…

 

Ayahuasca and Iboga – Messengers of Truth from Mother Earth

Ayahuasca and Iboga – Messengers of Truth from Mother Earth

“The history of Western culture in the last two thousand years could be seen as the “Empire of the Mind conquering the exterior world and extinguishing the interior one, with the result that we have atrophied our spiritual connection.” –Rak Razam

The world is deeply out of balance in these pre-apocalyptic times, and a serious correction, long overdue, is underway. The benevolent forces of the earth are reaching out into our culture and touching the consciousness of many people, invoking within them the necessity and the courage to transform and evolve beyond the self-destructive narratives that govern human life today.

SITUATION NORMAL: ALL FRACKED UP

When we look up into the sky we see a once blue oblivion painted in chemtrails, and when we look down into the soil we see poisons and genetically modified seed infecting the purity of nature. Radiation spills like blood from industrial accidents and the earth is being stripped bare by unfettered resource extraction. Our minds are held captive by programming that keeps us locked into materialistic and competitive paradigms, the ego is glorified as if it were God, and too many of us are unable to see beyond immediate personal desires. The mindlessness of it all is maddening.

The problems we face run deep, yet the consciousness of human kind seems firmly centered at base level. For many there seems to be little promise that a significant enough transformation can occur in time to avoid ecocide, which is suicide, because along with the industrial revolution we’ve reconfigured our knowledge base to exclude sustainable co-existence with the natural world.

“For it is said that humans are never satisfied, that you give them one thing and they want something more.” –John Steinbeck

So, then, what is available to us, as creatures of this earth, to remedy these crises? What catalysts, if any, are strong enough to cause the needed infectious tidal wave of personal and communal transformation? One strong enough to cause people to re-think their patterned lives and to restructure them? What in our world can help us to break through the fear of letting go of what we have now, in order to risk discovering what else may be possible?

How are we to fully understand the gravity of our mistake of viewing the earth as something separate from ourselves, as a consumable resource that can be totally exhausted for our comfort and our entertainment?

ENTER: ANCIENT WISDOM

Ayahuasca and Iboga… kindred medicine spirits that are pushing themselves into the collective consciousness of the modern world. Their ancient secrets have been guarded for thousands of years by the indigenous tribes that have since time immemorial structured their cultures and cosmologies around the wisdom gleaned from communing with these plant teachers. Yet for some important reason there is widespread and growing interest in these sacraments as a means to alleviate the cultural malaises that so many in the ‘advanced’ world suffer from.

“Grandmother Medicine is wise and powerful. Perhaps the plants themselves are catalyzing new opportunities for survival of their wisdom as well as their rainforest home, and maybe us too!” –Jonathon Miller-Weisberger

Used in shamanic and bona fide religious practices, Ayahuasca, native to South America, is a hallucinogenic brew concocted of the ‘vine of the souls,’ banisteriopsis caapi, and other DMT containing plants such as chacruna, or psychotria viridis. Iboga, native to the rainforest of Gabon, Africa, is an entheogenic root bark of the tree, tabernanthe iboga and an ancient sacrament of the Bwiti, a spiritual discipline whose African members number in the millions.

Both of these plant medicines are taken ceremonially as medicinal rites to facilitate physical and psychological healing, to teach virtuous living, to develop spirituality, to strengthen family and communal ties, and to deepen one’s connection to the natural world. They are the center pieces of shamanic traditions that have for ages been full-spectrum healing arts that address the total human needs of individuals and communities alike, while addressing imbalances between humans and nature. They bring a human-being into direct contact with the unseen spirit realms of the earth and the cosmos, allowing one to de-intellectualize the mystical nature of life and consciousness.

Strangely enough, both of these shamanic medicines are swiftly working their way into the consciousness of the modern, ‘civilized’ world at a time when the planet is under severe ecological assault and the individual is bombarded with fear, polluted with toxic foods and a toxic environment, and suffering from dreadful mental and emotional health. We have largely lost our connection to the divine, to the source of life and consciousness and to the very earth that sustains us. Whereas ancient cultures communicated directly with nature to gain the necessary wisdom to live by, we have convinced ourselves that nature is here for our exploitation.

WHAT LANGUAGE DOES MOTHER EARTH SPEAK?

How does our planet, which gives life to all earthly creatures, tell us when we’ve gone too far, when we’ve cut down too many forests or over-polluted the soil and sea? In what ways does she make appeals to the human race for compassionate reciprocity for breathing life into the stardust that animates us?

We know she is capable of doom and destruction, and that when she speaks up the earth shakes and trembles and entire cities fall. When she cries out her tears create centennial floods and blizzards that shock, surprise and humble us. When she moans in pain of being tortured, her anguish is felt in droughts, famine and pestilence, and thousands of her children die and fade to dust. When she smiles, we reap abundance in harvest and we thrive in good health of mind and spirit.

She speaks to us in these familiar tongues, using the language of blessing and destruction, yet our human minds have gone so far down the road of disconnection that we know longer hear her or heed her voice. We’ve advanced so far in the direction of materialism that we no longer acknowledge her communication as an intelligence, and we’ve grown so arrogant and pompous in our endeavors that we discredit her say, instead always moving to subjugate her interests or insulate ourselves from her wrath. Foolishness of the highest order.

“We are not talking about passive agents of transformation, we are talking about an intelligence, a consciousness, an alive and other mind, a spirit. Nature is alive and is talking to us. This is not a metaphor.” –Terence McKenna

Mother earth, the shining blue pearl of life in a vast sea of dark, uninhabitable space is at once held captive by the human race, and simultaneously the source of all life for human beings. The propagation of truly organic wisdom via these medicines into the human rat-race is her conscious effort to redress the wholesale damage being done to the planet, whose communication is limited to the forces of nature and the ability to inspire.

The timing of the appearance of these plant medicines in Western culture is of vast significance because it reveals a direct attempt by our sentient planet to communicate directly with the human race in order to impress upon us her suffering and her commitment to love us through it all.

TOUCHING CONSCIOUSNESS, TRANSFORMING LIVES

Transformation is the key to navigating these insane times, and these medicines strike at the root of global transformation, the individual. It takes tremendous courage to ‘step into the fire’ with these medicines, but for those who do, it feels distinctly like a calling or destiny, and very little like a desire or ambition.

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” –Mother Teresa

Initiates are called to muster absolute courage and humility, and are returned renewed and cleansed with heightened energy and abundant inspiration. Often gaining clear signals about choosing and navigating life’s paths, initiates receive visionary insight into the value of life and the connection to the natural world.

The message is similar for many: Wake up, let go of the past, balance the ego, refine yourself, refine your personal energy, and move your life in the direction of service, with gratitude for each breath that you take.

Fear is understood and overcome, and the infinite nature of human consciousness is revealed. Emotional healing happens instantly, and self-judgements and criticisms are re-apportioned into task lists for personal development. Impulsivity and addiction are understood as destructive forces that require domestication, and the impetus to do so is received abundantly. One reassess their connection to nature and sees, senses and directly feels the sentience in all things, thereby tempering their sense of seniority in the cosmic web of life. A new life path unfolds, deep, enduring questions are answered, and forgiveness is granted. A life purpose lost is re-discovered and the seeker becomes new, refreshed, and reborn into a new perspective that lasts a lifetime.

“My own view, for what it’s worth, is that human society is presently in a very bad place and these messengers from the plant kingdom, notably DMT… are reaching out to help us. Many in the modern world are so deeply conditioned into mental slavery towards the materialist model (i.e. the notion that there is nothing more to life than our material, physical existence presently promulgated by many scientists, by all corporations, by politicians and by the media) that a huge kick up the ass is needed to break free. The plant allies provide this kick up the ass, remove the scales from our eyes, cleanse the doors of perception and offer the opportunity to see things as they really are — infinite, to paraphrase Blake. – Graham Hancock in a recent Facebook Post

These medicines heal the cultural malaises of apathy and distractedness by re-introducing mystery and magic into life, and by liberating one’s consciousness from the confining prisons of the war on consciousness. They completely destroy the matrix of cultural programming, clearing space within the psyche for something new and positive to emerge.

CONCLUSION – COUNTERING CULTURAL PROPAGANDA

It is no accident that these medicines are forcing their way into popular culture at this time. These plant teachers are one of nature’s greatest tools for communicating with human beings, and their message is seeding greater consciousness among us as a defense mechanism for the sentient being we call Earth.

Iboga is the tree of knowledge. Ayahuasca is the vine of souls. Together they comprise an entirely complete, organic language and are reaching out into the world seeking soldiers of truth to translate and seed the message of the Earth, who is unmistakably our Mother. They are calling us, speaking directly to us in spiritual form, asking for our involvement in this life or death struggle to return to equity, respect and balance to our relationship with the natural world.

They are messengers of truth from our mother the earth. Are you listening?

‘Consciously Awake Lovers’ 
A recent incident in my community, my own love life and a friends recent post has inspired a very strong expression I have to take the time to share.

It is essential to have friends and lovers that we can rely on, those that see us and compliment us. We all want partners and relations who will take the time to really be present with us, honor our brilliance, beauty, personalities, and capabilities without tearing us down or not showing up. Those who are hard on themselves or beat themselves up will eventually be hard on you and not available unless it is convenient for them, like if they are horny.
I claim non-violence with my self. Patience, discipline and a look in the mirror when something pushes my buttons or when i mess up.
If you want to be GREAT at something just do it, keep at it, and be patient with your process. If you suck or have a lot of growth ahead of you, just own it and move forward. 

It blows me away how asleep some of our friends still are. That we can deny our own imbalance or go as far as to disrespect, gossip or cut someone that we care about down to turn the table so we don’t have to own the fact that we are in dire need of emotional growth?
Self sabotage by means of our habits and addictions is weak. The only thing it does is make you feel horrible, so if someone is doing this to you or to themselves—BAIL. Don’t wait around for that person to figure themselves out. If you choose to be friends with those who have emotional issues, let them do their thing, but don’t have delusions about ‘their’ growth and what that could mean for you.
We need to practice SOLUTIONS and get to where we want to be and stop wasting time. You don’t have a lot of time on this planet. If you really love someone you have to tell them how you feel and maybe they will begin to wake up.

Our desire to AWAKEN and the tools we have been given can be powerful leverage to confront our demons and do the work to become a more Consciously Awake human being.
Choosing Conscious Awareness can be messy, emotional and may seam like work because it is. The shit we have carried around forever is heavy but as soon as you own it you can drop it with some good spiritual practice.
Real Self Examination requires COURAGE and DISCIPLINE.
You don’t know what courage looks like until you are sinking in piles of your own shit and you have to figure a way out before it suffocates you.
Let’s be real and honest – Consciously Awake Humans don’t just exist—we have evolved through enormous effort and courage to confront the waters of our own emotional landscape and social conditioning. We don’t feel entitled or self righteous, we are confident, humble and love ourselves. Don’t mistake self-love and self-care for selfish. Awake leaders of love are not selfish, we are giving and compassionate, we help others and teach others how to help others but we have boundaries, and we trust our intuition.

‘Consciously Awake Lovers’ are not your average men or women. We will not allow fear to prohibit us from looking into the fires of our own souls and ‘own’ our emotional triggers, past wounds, flaws, mistakes, or pain. We aren’t afraid of going deep and looking into the eyes of our relations. We have consciously chosen to grow and evolve our beings and take pride in our personal development.
We care about our health, attitude, environment, and connections. 

The key is this! – We are reasonable. We can admit when we are wrong. We are always willing to talk things out once the dust has settled, unless we have decided you’re not worth our time or energy.
Consciously Awake Individuals are not flawless, stuff comes up, and we slip up from time to time, but what sets us apart is deep down we are psychologically healthy and sane, even if we like to get crazy at a good party, enjoy a few cocktails or the occasional puff. Awake doesn’t mean boring, it doesn’t mean goodie goodie, it means that we deal with our issues and our problems or challenges are opportunities for growth and evolution.
Step up lovers! Claim your shit! No one else is to blaim for your suffering, not your parents or your partners.

The only battle left in this world to fight is within. Surrender. Love and nourish your self. And all good things and good people will come to you.
