The Infant Knows

Prologue: As you know, this year (2024) we’re diving into the great transformation that’s occurring in the very design of human consciousness. We’ll start from the beginning, from childhood, and work our way up using information and tools that can help propel us into our new selves, our authentic identities. This intimate connection with Source is our birthright. This is an amazing journey, which we will take one step at a time. Before we dive into the potential for our new transitional self, let’s take a step back in time and look at what has unconsciously shaped our reality from the beginning.

Quantum physics shows us that we are part of the universal whole, that love is our very nature. We all want and need love. So, why do we learn to separate from love?

We humans have the conviction that we are separate individuals, that we stand alone in the world separate from other people. This belief begins in childhood because we absorb our identity from the environment in which we find ourselves. Over time this deep belief shapes and defines our sense of self and how we experience life as an adult.

However good our parents were, we have experienced the absence of holding, a certain kind of emptiness when our needs were not specifically met. We began to not trust our surroundings. We drop our gentle, delicate, finely tuned nature, grow out of our softness, and harden into life.

What is love: An infant knows when it is not loved. It experiences the Impact of not feeling loved. Hameed says in Love Unveiled: Discovering the Essence of the Awakened Heart:

Most often the arrival of a child is just a fulfillment of someone’s needs and expectations…A child may have been longed for, but not welcomed for who that child really is, or the parents see the child as an extension of themselves. So, when they say, ‘I love you,’ it’s more about them than the child. Maybe the child was not what the parents expected, but then it’s their duty to love, but it’s not because of who you actually are.

So, what happens if our parents are unable to love us for who we really are? There is a wound that comes from not being truly loved. (To explore how this wound has developed in you, ask yourself some repeating questions, a technique I learned when I was in the Diamond approach.) As you answer the same question again and again, draw from anytime in your life because your present life carries early imprints from your early life.

Exercise: Ask yourself the following question again and again and again. In what way have I ever felt unloved? Write down all your answers. How is this early programming affecting you today?

Many of us don’t allow ourselves to feel love in certain situations, or with certain people, because we would feel the pain, hurt, or disappointment from the past. These feelings trigger the deprivation around not getting love in general.

If you’d really like to learn even more about yourself, go ahead and ask yourself this second repeating question: What prevents me from feeling love? (I’d love it if you would take a moment and write me a note to tell me what you discovered through these repeating questions.) Much love to you and your journey to love.

Have you heard? A Great Transformation is underway

The great transformation is about the actual evolution of consciousness. This is a BIG deal. It’s revolutionary. It involves the evolution of consciousness Itself. This evolution overhauls everything that we’ve learned as humans—how we think, how we behave, and what we understand our world to be. This cosmic reset turns the knowledge of our planet, and ourselves, upside down and inside out.

Many leading voices are talking about the leap in consciousness that is going on right now on planet Earth. This includes astrologers like Pam Gregory, geologists like Greg Braden, scientists like Nassim Haramein, researchers like Bruce Lipton and Dawson Church, spiritual teachers like Dr. Sue Morter , Dr. Joe Dispenza, and even beings from higher frequency dimensions such as the Circle of Light channeled by Georgia Jean. Everything is changing from our physiology to our cosmic potential. Let’s take a closer look.

We’ll see what’s going on with our biology, our actual DNA, and acknowledge the amazing built-in potential that we human beings already possess. We’ll also move ahead and up a level to the new ways we humans are invited to participate as an integrated part of the quantum field.

Let’s begin with Richard Rudd. After an incredible spiritual awakening, he was shown the past, present, and future dynamics of our DNA. In The Gene Keys: Embracing Your Higher Purpose, he explains:

“Our planet is in the midst of a vast transition in which humanity is playing the central role….The great quantum leap is in the air. The Gene Keys show us a world where human beings are governed by higher principles such as love, forgiveness, and freedom. Such a world is not a dream; it is the next stage of natural evolution, and it depends upon each of us unlocking the higher purpose that lies hidden in our DNA.”

Moving on, the original blueprint for humanity is being upgraded. As Michael Beckwith explains:

“The old paradigm (of human consciousness) is being disrupted. The old way of thinking—of lack, limitation, scarcity, is not enough…this old energetic blueprint is what most of us are still living in…a new, truly expansive blueprint is coming in; this is the emergence of a different paradigm of abundance, a paradigm of love, a paradigm of connectedness…both of these paradigms (old and new) are existing at the same time and in the same space.”

The old Newtonian model says that two things cannot exist in the same space and time. But now we see in the latest scientific discoveries in quantum reality, two things can exist in the same space and time; they are just manifesting from different dimensions. This would be like when we can step back and observe ourselves from a distance, and still, at the same time, see how we are thinking, or feeling, or behaving.

Nassim Haramein, a brilliant physicist, knows all about different frequencies and dimensions. He proves that things actually do exist simultaneously in his groundbreaking discovery of a Unified Physics formula. He tells us:

“2024 will be known as the year when we’ve formally resolved the disparity between cosmological and quantum [physical] physics, the conundrum the global science community has spent billions of dollars trying to resolve over the past 100 years… our new understanding will lead to [groundbreaking technologies] like the extraction of energy from the vacuum, gravity control, new life extension technologies, and a truly thriving world.”

Let’s look at the higher frequencies. The Circle of Light is a group of 12 Light Beings who are dedicated to helping humans transcend the old blueprint of human consciousness. In The Circle of Light and the Philosopher, channeled by Georgia Jean, the Circle of Light gives us some examples of what can be. I’m going to quote them in their own language, so you get the flavor of how they speak:

“Some fundamental precepts in the original creation of the human experience are now up for revision. We want you to understand that you are moving to your integrative, galactic light bodies. Some of the original human concepts are not necessary [for example] the template of toxicity, where you were physically susceptible to forms of toxic degeneration like illness, disease, plague, un-well-being have been collective experiences throughout the human experience. [They explain that the concept of disease and struggle was necessary to urge humans to experiment, learn, survive, and move on.] No longer is it desired that you struggle with this particular form of resistance. It’s now time to purify this from the humanity template. We want you to understand all history will now shape around a different creative choice….Yes, it’s hard to imagine the possibility of a world without disease. That’s all right, just love and accept the part of you that struggles with the belief of the possibility of transcending such a global illusion. But in a certain frequency you know this to be true.”

Marci Shimoff, a renowned transformational teacher and expert on happiness, success, and unconditional love says:

“History shows that in chaotic times like this are always followed by a renaissance. If you are reading this right now, you chose to be incarnated to help the world move into the rebirth, into the new world….We are here for a world of unity, for healing our planet, for consciousness, for love. We need to move into our imagination, like Einstein did, move into our vision of what the world can be. We want to move into our higher vision to create the higher world we are looking for.”

So, we’ve looked at what several well-known writers in the spiritual world are saying about the Great Transformation in Consciousness. This is heady stuff. But as Neale Donald Walsch explains in his book Conversations with God, Book 4, Awaken the Species, it’s all about us living our day to day lives:

“This is not just about saving the world. 
This is about your personal spiritual journey; 
it’s about your individual evolution.
It can be the most exciting, enthralling time 
you’ve experienced since your birth.”

–Neale Donald Walsch

In upcoming blog posts, we will dive into what this tremendous change in consciousness means for us on an individual level because we are the recipients of this gift. This transformative level of consciousness is not just for seers, sages, or avatars. It is meant for regular people, like you and me. And it is available for us right now if we choose to do the work and participate.

Note: Check out one of my previous posts about collective consciousness for more background information on what is going on within us as human beings.

The Gift: Dance with your own light

“Installation: Cosmic Kisses Illuminated” by Lance Shields | CC BY 2.0

Become the dancing lightness that you are

Hu translates as deep

Man translates as manifestation

To be Human means deep manifestation

This is who you are
The light
The true you
The ever-emerging new you

Stop right now. Become an unattached observer. Create some distance from your usual self. Discover yourself moment by moment. Use your imagination, your higher creative self, to picture yourself high above the Earth. As you look down, you find yourself to be in unfamiliar terrain, observing the “you” that is yet to emerge.

See yourself dancing with yourself, as in the image above. Dance. Dream. Play for a bit.

Now, go ahead and engage with your higher self; feel into this deeper, more light-hearted, version of you. Take your time, while you dance from your limited Shadow-self into the newer, expanded “you.” This is your birthright, your Gift.

No holding back; just let yourself go.

Feel the wonder.

Feel the joy.

What visions float through your head? What feelings arise? What experiences dance in your soul? What is it about this dancing self that seems unfamiliar? Is there something that is still unknown? Be curious. Let your heart do the exploration. Have fun.

Now, sense into your “vibrational key.” This is uniquely you. Bring your cosmic energy down to the Earth through the top of your head. Allow this energy to land in your body. What happens? Let it feel good. Anchor this energy in your heart. This experience can be yours in any moment. This embodied frequency broadcasts an entirely different world view, and it’s all yours.

Remember to nurture the things that you love about yourself. Dance with the real you—the new, fresh, twirling, the delighted you—the human that you are meant to be. Memorize these feelings—love, joy, gratitude, and abundance—because this is who you are—dancing with the Light.

Happy New Year!

Choice: An essential key

“Thinking about thinking, the brain, mind, and consciousness” by sbpoet | CC BY-NC 2.0

Choice with awareness changes everything

Once upon a time, I asked a spiritual teacher, “Is there choice or isn’t there choice?” He answered, “There is and there isn’t.” Well, that was not a very satisfying answer, so I continued to wonder, observe, and question. My guides are now directing me to answer this question simply:

  1. Humans make hundreds of choices every day; most are made unknowingly by the subconscious mind.
  2. Humans are equipped to make wonderfully conscious choices by directing their energy.
  3. Sometimes, answers just come unbidden. This happens when humans break through their usual level of awareness. (This happened for me, decades ago when I experienced that I had no choice at all! For weeks, everything just happened by itself. There was no “me” involved! This was truly strange; I made it a point to pay attention.)

So, let’s explore more closely the dynamics of choice.

Unconscious choice

We’ve been taught to make a choice with our ego-minds, according to our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings, and through analysis and determination. In the beginning, this is how we view choice. This seems like a lot of work. (We were never taught to go with the flow and come from the dimension of love.)

During my Getting the World off Your Back series, we’ve learned that most of our choices have been coming from our unconscious self, our Shadow, or 3D self (see The Hidden Trap and Let’s face it, we’re on automatic.)

But the thing is, if we don’t consciously choose, we lose. We choose by default. We don’t get to blossom into our full human potential. We fail to latch on to our true selves. We miss signs of opportunity and guidance. We unconsciously allow “outside” events, and our wounded subconscious to choose for us; this takes us away from our authentic self.

Conscious choice

We’ve also learned that we can choose to direct our intention to a higher level, to our Gift self. We want to remember that we are the creators of ourselves. We all have the power to create the reality in which we choose to live. No one else can do this for us.

We are always at a choice point. In each moment, we have an opportunity to make a choice. Many of us don’t notice this choice point. We don’t notice how often we are coming from our old selves, from fear and/or negativity. We worry that something is not going to work out, that it might rain, we’ll run out of money, be sick, or alone, etc. But, we can learn to pay attention to all these inner goings on. With dedicated practice, we can have control over our energy, our thoughts, and our feelings (even though our ego still wants to stay in control). We can learn to up-level our choice making. We can learn to select a view that is filled with the possibility of a new life, a new perspective. Here’s how…

How to do it

1. Observe. Pay close attention.

Watch what’s going on in your inner world. Be the observer of yourself; this is what brings in new, fundamental, information. You step beyond your usual self. You begin to unseat your old, limited perspective. When you just observe, you allow all thoughts, feelings, and attitudes to pass by without judgment; it’s like watching a movie, or cars passing on the street. With this more objective perspective, you are on your way to inner freedom. Simply being where you are, and watching, means a great deal because this allows your higher self (your source) to connect and work with you.

Here’s a practice to try: Notice the things that you don’t like. These “judgments” can serve as clues that guide you to where you have resistance to total life. They alert you to where you could obtain a broader perspective and expand your awareness. Judgements reveal when you are not in frequencies that are headed toward the vibration of love and your most authentic self.

2. Choose what you want

Go ahead, right now, pick something that you want to create. Choose from deep human values and qualities like health, wealth, wellness, integrity, abundance, success, relationship, etc. For example, you might say, “I want health”, or “I want joy, or wealth, success, or abundance.”

Now, change your words to the present tense: I am health, I am wealth, success, joy, or abundance. Do this because, as contemporary science shows, the brain does not know the difference between now and a month from now (see Joe Dispenza). At first, your automatic mind will probably buck, doubt, or say no, “That’s not going to happen.” But it doesn’t matter because you are actually creating this desire in the immediate moment. Once you have your choice in mind…

3. Shift your energy with a feeling of love

This could be anything that makes you feel gratitude, kindness, tenderness, compassion. Remember that love is the most powerful creation tool that we humans have available to us. Review the heart power method and the smile method in the previous post. When we learn to live in the state of love, we continually draw things to us that match our higher frequency. This is because we are directing our choice toward the flow of the universe. When this happens, we are in relation with divine love, the medium of which we are made. This method of decision making will help us learn to master our life rather than allow the world to take us over. We want to learn how to go with the flow, release what’s not needed, and move forward in our unique path of becoming.

4. Let go

Don’t be attached. Let go of patterns that no longer serve you. Let go of trying to control the how of your manifestation. If you have preconceived ideas about the outcome you desire, give them up, otherwise you may miss the signs that it’s already happening in a different way or in a shorter period of time. Plus, the outcome may even be better than you could have imagined.
Let go of anything that is not like Love. Give all your attention to the highest values or qualities of life that you want. This will change your universe; it will also change others around you because you’ll be vibrating in a higher frequency, and love always wins. And remember…

Sometimes the answers come unbidden

It’s just how life energy works, like the time I was out walking in the city, noticing the sights, sounds, smells, movements, when, poof, it happened; instantly; I was the chooser of all my perception! The workers, whom I usually observed with my 3D perspective, were transformed into shining essential beings just doing their thing! The entire landscape was amazing. I was actually free to choose any world view that I desired. I was astounded. I realized that, simply by being born human, choice is something all we have at our beckon call. What freedom! I came to understood, unequivocally, that we humans do have the power to choose—a new belief, a new way of seeing, a new reality! That free energy is here, available, flowing; it’s just waiting to respond to our direction. This is a difficult truth for many of us humans to grok. But we can do it.

So, let us choose deeply human values, or qualities, pair them with feelings of love, and direct our energy to the highest possibilities. In the end, our job is to observe, choose, and ask. The universe’s job is to do all the work and provide the “how’s.” When we consciously choose, direct our energy with love, and commit to the natural process, we co-create with the universe. And life becomes a co-creative dance!

Be creative: Match the energy you want

“Data mapped into fresh permutations of fun…” by TORLEY | CC BY-SA 2.0

What energy zone are you in: creative or re-active?

As we are discovering, our ability to leverage our Essential Human Power is predicated on our ability to stay out of our learned, reactive, Shadow-self while we learn to stay in our original creative, higher frequency, Gift-self.

Don’t forget, our Shadow-self is driven by an underlying, pervasive sense of lack; we feel we are missing something. Because of this, we go to our minds, or to something outside of ourselves to find it. Our Shadow-self is essentially re-active. It is not original or spontaneous. We want to slip out of this old automatic mind frequency. We want to move into our heart frequency—into our higher, more creative, expansive self.

Our energy frequency determines the shape and focus of our life because it’s the underlying frequency of Life that constantly influences us, whether the energy is coming from our head-self or our heart-self. As Henk J. M. Schram at Crack Your Egg explains:

“These two (frequencies) are completely different Orientations. The Reactive (head) mode is focused on getting rid of or changing something that already exists. The Creative (heart) mode is focused on bringing something new into being… the only way to escape (your) programming is to rise above it at an energetic level…If you anchor yourself into a higher frequency, the same life can be experienced as through you were living in an entirely different world.”

The truth is we are all yearning for something deeper than our surface-level goals. We want to switch from the usual effort of the head to the effortless creative power of the heart. We are yearning to self-actualize and become our true selves. And we can do this.

The body has over 60 trillion cells. Every single cell is listening, and it is responding to the environmental signals that we create. So, we want to make sure we are sending the correct signals (see The missing link: Direct your energy). We want to re-wire and fire the cells which can lead to our most authentic selves. We want to gain the ability to remain in our creative frequency and shift back to our creative energy as soon as we realize that we’ve slipped back into our old, conditioned self. So, let’s be honest with ourselves; are we coming from our old, learned, reactive self or from a new, expanded, perspective of our highest self?

The Circle of Light, dedicated to helping humanity wake up, gives us inspiration to use our inborn creative ability. They explain:

“While you remain alive in physical form in this Earth game, you are going to keep the usual flavors of your identity. But if you continue to expand, open, and allow more of the power of your personal source, of your soul’s energy, you allow that pure creative consciousness to flow through you. This is when you really get to dance…without the usual painful resistance.”

So, let’s get creative here and learn how to direct our energy to where we want it to go. I’m going to use myself as an example and explain what I’ve learned about directing energy from Dee Wallace in her Awesome Magical Creation Course:

I was having an issue with my health. My digestive system was out of whack. What follows is the process I used to help me direct my energy to where I wanted it to go:

  1. I stated my desire at the deepest level: I am divine health.
  2. I found the place inside me that made me smile and feel love. (Innocent things, like babies, puppies, and kittens.)
  3. I inhaled, smiled, and then on a slow exhale said, “I am divine health, and it feels like love.”

That’s it; that’s the process—easy peasy.

The steps in more detail

Now, let me explain in more detail.

First, you clearly identify what it is that you’d like to manifest. Your statement should be short, clear, and direct. Start with “I am.” You might say, “I am divine wealth, or divine relationship, or divine success, wellness, abundance, or whatever. Keep your statement as plain and simple as possible. (Dee Wallace says whatever is said after the “I am” is unnecessary and could cause conflict.)

For example, if I say, “I am divine health and I want my digestive system to work better”, I am actually sending a mixed signal. On the one hand, I would be saying that I want divine health, but on the other hand, I would be declaring that my health was not working well. So, how would the universe find a match? In which direction would it look—to divine health or to continued sickness?

Or I might get too specific and say, “I want my stomach to work in this way and my bowels to work in that way.” This doesn’t allow the energy complete freedom to find a solution. It might be in ways that I could never have imagined.

Second, Dee asks us to find our “love place,” which means anything that makes you smile and feel love. It could be your pet, the picture of a friend or grandchild, a place in nature, etc. It’s all up to you. If you don’t think you have a love place, (which was me in the beginning) just focus on your heart, then “fake it till you make it” come true.

Dee adds that smiling is the scientific part of the process because it opens the vagus nerve, which sends the conscious intent that we have chosen out into the electromagnetic universe, rather than all the unconscious beliefs that we usually have running around in our heads. And smiling as you say, “and it feels like love” gives the universe a clear direction in which to go.

Note: As you are going through this process, be alert when any doubt or worry that comes in (Am I really going to get this? Is the universe really going to deliver? This is not going to work.) When this happens recognize that it is the old, small, voice that you’ve been carrying around for decades. Say, “Stop!” Then choose to shift back to the clear smile method, stating your divine desire statement.

Third, inhale, smile, and slowly exhale and you say, “I am divine ______.” Fill in the blank with whatever you desire in the highest—divine health, wellness, money, relationship, success, etc. (Divine abundance is my favorite.)

Eventually, with practice, we can adopt a conscious mastery—directing our energy, having our mind serve our higher self, and aligning our thoughts, attitudes, feelings, and beliefs with our innate, essential power. At some point, we will awake our natural, creative process, and this feels divine.

The missing link: Direct your energy

“Strong emotion” by claudiadea131 | CC BY 2.0

Today, we will be looking at, not only moving our energy, but directing it. This is the most important skill of all, and it is predicated upon knowing our actual intent, our underlying motivation, and directing this energy from our head to our heart. (See my post “A critical Move: From head to heart“.)

Directing energy is the missing link to living our most enhanced life. The biggest key is to align ourselves with the indirect, built-in, power of the heart. This alignment is what makes us feel alive, creative, comfortable, and safe. When we move away from our core, our true self, we feel un-easy because we are off our center. We are out of alignment.

We want to learn to be in our heart’s energy zone, balanced. We want to be who we are at our core, on a continual basis. We humans do have the power to re-connect with the fundamental person we are meant to be, and to embody the values, attitudes, and behaviors that express this, our essential identity, out into the world. But here’s the rub…

“Unknown misalignment between implicit and explicit intent is most likely the biggest pitfall in our attempts to apply our natural-born creative powers.”

— Henk J. M. Schram @ Crack Your Egg

When we activate our old, ingrained patterns, we get stuck in the past. But when we actively practice moving our energy from our fear-based head set to our love-based heart set, we migrate into our new, higher self. This is where freedom and relaxation are found. Remember…

Everything is energy. Our life-force energy is magnificent and powerful. It runs through us, creating all things—bumblebees, buildings, and beings. It flows effortlessly from the quantum field. It gives us what we want according to the signals that we send into the field. (See my post “Energy is Us“.)

Energy is neutral and must be directed. Energy itself is not positive or negative. It is only that we humans have learned to analyze, judge, and interpret things as good or bad. This is why it’s so important to know our underlying motivation. (See my post “Know your true intent“.) We can tap into our energy and create the things we love, and/or, we can tap into energy and manifest things that we don’t want. This is why we need to clearly state what we want because our body/heart/mind systems work in an indirect way, So, it’s important to learn what we are actually doing with our energy; after all, we are the only ones who can take responsibility for directing it. Now, don’t get discouraged.

Directing energy is what Dr. Joe Dispenza, teacher, researcher, and author of Becoming Supernatural: How common People Are Doing the Uncommon is teaching thousands of regular people around the world to do; to go into higher dimensions by learning how the mind works and engaging in a breathing practice that transfers life energy from the perineum up to the pituitary gland, the effectiveness of which is continually being validated by researchers. Here is the secret code…

Our energies need to match up. The key is that we must learn to match the energy frequency of our heart with the energy frequency of our head in order to get the reality that we actually want to manifest. It can be no other way because this is how the higher, more intelligent, more powerful, frequency of Reality works. (See “Know Your True Intent“.) As Henk at Crack Your Egg says, “It’s paramount that our true, underlying, intent is consistently aligned with the nature of the reality we want to create.”

The good news is…

Energy can be directed by choice. We can learn to choose our thoughts, feelings, perspectives, and beliefs. Thankfully, there is a deeper urge within us that wants us to express who we really are. This natural force is always present, and it works in our favor. The tricky part comes in learning to discriminate what we really want beyond our learned preferences so that we can direct that energy to what we actually desire.

This is where Dee Wallace comes in. Wallace is a teacher, healer, and author of, Conscious Creation: Directing Energy to Get the Life You Want. Wallace learned the lesson of “energy direction” through trial and error as she worked with her dedicated students over many years. Now, she teaches thousands around the world, explaining, “You have a choice. You direct energy by choosing which thoughts, feelings, perspectives, and beliefs you hold to be true. You create minute by minute, directing energy in this way. If you don’t do this consciously, you’ll still create your life–but without any control over your results.” (Find out how in the next blog post, November 17.)

Know your true Intent: hidden dynamics count

“The two dimensions of the same Light!!! / Les deux dimensions de la même Lumière!!!” by Denis Collette | CC BY-NC-ND 2.0

Knowing your actual intention is a key element of waking up. There are two kinds of intention, one comes from the head (like the dark shadow areas pictured above) and the other intention comes from the heart (the golden truth of who we are). The difference between these two intentions is critical. This is why we want to learn how to distinguish between an intent from our head and an intent from our heart. This knowledge will give us a way to move with grace towards our true authentic selves.

Intention from the head

Most of us are living according to intentions that come from the head, from the motivations that we’ve learned so far. These intentions come out of our 3D personality. They come from our Shadow-selves. We project these head intentions out into our physical reality. The thing is, when we are coming from this fight/flight, survival mode, we try to protect ourselves by manipulating what’s going on. We attempt to change people, thoughts, feelings, and situations into what pleases us. This continual rearranging of life takes conscious effort, and in truth, it never fully works to our satisfaction.

The intentions, the motivations, that originate from this ego realm appear to us to be direct, straightforward, and understandable, but actually they can be sneaky and lead us in the wrong direction.

“People, confused by ego, think they are doers of all kinds of work while it is being done by the energy of nature.”

— Bhagavad Gita

Don’t forget, we are here to discover what our body/mind systems are actually longing for—the ability to function from our higher selves, from our 5D (Gift) dimension. (See my 3D to 5D blog series.)

Intention from the heart

When we actually come from the heart, we come from the unmanifest realm, from the metaphysical part of us. This non-physical energy compresses itself down until it manifests as us on the physical plane. This frequency is multidimensional and goes way beyond our bodies and brains. This kind of energy comes from our natural state of Being and is essentially effortless. It manifests from Source, flowing freely though us from the quantum field. This kind of intent emanates a powerful electromagnetic field, just waiting for us to engage with it and blossom. This virtual, non-physical, vibrational energy is our true self, our true Home. This powerful, invisible, field of intention is what actually runs our life.

While both dimensions of intention, physical and non-physical, are real, the intention in our head is of relatively minor importance. The invisible, non-physical intention of our heart plays a much more profound role in our life. This is because our everyday life experience is actually lived as a reflection of the underlying intent of our heart.

Here’s why: We don’t manifest what we think we want in our heads. We manifest what we actually believe in our hearts. We may be able to fool ourselves at the ego level, but we can’t fool ourselves at the heart level. Our true self, our higher, non-physical self, knows the truth.

Inner conflict happens when what we believe in our head does not match the underlying intention we have in our heart. It’s important to understand this difference. For example, if we have an intention, an aim, of having more money, abundance, love, or whatever, the heart knows what we really believe underneath. It sees that we don’t really believe our intention is possible because we are coming from a sense of lack, not from the higher frequency of who we truly are.

We receive what we believe.

— Barbara Bennett

When there is a mismatch, it means our body/mind system is out of alignment with its higher self. (This mismatch is often the reason we don’t get what we want.)The mismatch causes stress which cancels out our head’s desires—leading to confusion, worry, anxiety, and heartache which throws our life off-kilter. As we become astute observers, we discover that holding a conviction in our mind does not guarantee that we will hold the corresponding truth in our heart.

The non-physical, vibrational, intention is actually what we want our minds and hearts to discover. We want our minds to stop working like mad to control our lives. We want our hearts to gently crack open and come out of their protective covering. When our minds and our hearts find out that this is indeed possible, they are delighted! They can then become true partners, working to serve our authentic selves.

The higher intention of the heart is also the dimension that we humans are seeking spiritually. We are biologically wired to find this dimension. It’s the frequency that wakes us up. The good news is that our non-physical dimension trumps all other dimensions, and it manifests our desires faster than anything else. This is because our higher dimension doesn’t judge; it merely gives us what we actually believe. (This is why it’s so important to pay attention to our underlying intention.)

Because our greater-Self functions in this neutral manner, we can’t live our larger self if we continue to hold onto our smaller self. When we hold onto our small 3D self, our invisible energy manifests in ways that keep us stuck because of our underlying, learned, beliefs. This feels horrible and causes all kinds of problems.

But when we experience the energy of our larger 5D self, this same non-physical energy manifests in ways that are remarkable, awe-inspiring, and majestic. (This took me a l-o-n-g time to discover.) Make no mistake: this energy-vibration belongs to each one of us. With dedication and practice, we can learn to experience this higher frequency in a palpable way.

This is why we are going to keep learning about the underlying dynamics that keep us small, the unconscious things that sabotage us. We want to be able to flow with life’s energy. We want to be able to flourish. We want to shift our perspective to 5D, to the Gift of love. Shifting from head to heart is well worth the effort, because as Bruce Lipton (the noted cell biologist and researcher) tells us that we humans have the ability to create from this amazing place of love—95% of the day!

A Critical Move: From head to heart

A Critical Move: From head to heart

As we’ve seen in previous blog posts, most of the time we humans are living from our heads. (see Mind Games). This is not what we want. We want to be our most authentic selves. We want to allow our hearts to lead us through life because the heart is the most powerful tool on the planet.

So, now we will take a look at what contemporary science, and deep human experience, knows about the heart. We are not going to talk about heart in the usual colloquial way, although we humans do use phrases like, “it would break your heart”, “take it to heart”, “my heart’s not in it”, “he is heartbroken”, “I just ‘love’ this or that”, or “get to the heart of the matter”. No, we’re going to take a look at the actual power of heart frequency, which is much greater than any of our usual heart-based understandings. Let’s begin with some contemporary heart facts.

The heart has its own intelligence. It turns out that the heart contains thousands of its own brain cells. It has an electro-magnetic field that is the most powerful, and the most extensive, field in the human body. The heart’s potent field is about 5,000 times stronger than the electro-magnetic field of the brain. The energy frequency that the heart broadcasts can be detected several feet away from the body, between people, and throughout the Earth’s atmosphere. (Make sure to watch the video below.)

Research shows that our heart directs what happens. The heart sends its messages to the brain and the brain responds to that message, even before we actually act on the physical plane. An example of this is how our non-physical, invisible, heart-intent trumps the intent of our mind.

The heart does it all. It powers all levels of existence—from the most compact, physical, 3D Shadow level, through the lightest, non-physical, 5D Gift level, and far beyond.

Neuro-physicists have discovered that the heart is able to facilitate or inhibit the brain’s electrical activity. This aptitude is why I think the following quotation from Jack Kornfield is of particular importance,

“The Heart is like a garden. It can grow compassion or fear, resentment, or love. What seeds will you plant?”

— Jack Kornfield

This is a great question. We’ve seen how our mind is often in an over-active mode, functioning on automatic pilot (see my post Let’s face it, we’re on automatic). This behavior is based on fear because our mind has learned to protect us. But we want to learn how to come from love, from the heart.

The problem is that many of us have not yet learned to engage the sensitive guidance of our heart’s intuitive intelligence. Magic happens when the mind finally realizes there is something much more significant that it can be doing to help us in our life experience. As Dr. Sue Morter (see her Fear Into Fire course) says:

“The human heart has the capacity to transmute anything. You can pour love on any situation, and it will change.”

— Dr. Sue Morter

The heart has a GPS

The heart has an Intuitive Guidance System which uses non-local, or non-physical, energy. This intelligence comes from another dimension. It comes from the higher, creative, intuitive part of us. It comes from our Gift dimension—from the quantum field.

This heart intelligence brings with it a gentle, direct, instantaneous kind of inner knowing. We may sense that someone is staring at us or know who is on the phone when it rings. We may be able to detect the mood of another person across the room or feel their energy. This heart-knowledge responds to difficult life situations with less tension and more expertise. The good news is that we can anticipate and learn to follow the prompts of the heart before we say or do something that we may later regret.

Intuitive heart-energy is based on love rather than on fear, and it is filled with possibility. This kind of love is not syrupy. It manifests as needed—soft, gentle, sweet, courageous, or ferocious. This kind of love simply uses the power of our heart to enhance our intelligence. When this occurs, something magical can happen. This is when we get that “aha” experience. Knowing comes to you. You just know.

When we work in partnership with our mind, the heart pulls in intuitive information which selects the best option for the situation at hand. With practice, our heart can help us get to the underlying understanding of our thoughts, feelings, circumstances, and problems faster than anything else.

For example, I had been struggling with a difficult emotion for days. I didn’t like it and I didn’t understand it. Then, as I was stepping into the shower—flash—the answer appeared with a zap: This is the exact feeling I had as a child every morning! I was not loved. I wasn’t allowed to give love to my parents. There was to be none of that mushy stuff. My love was not noticed or accepted. It was tossed aside. I was alone.

The next zap came when I realized, as a child, I had built an emotional prison for myself, locked my heart down. I had dreams of a bright red lobster. Oh my, this represented my safe place! I hid inside the shell; the lobster was keeping me safe.

Another zap, I was creating the same shell in my current family environment! (Wow, I never would have figured this out with my usual mind.) The lesson is, when we allow the heart’s information to surface, the heart sends wisdom to the mind.

The heart can change our lives

Current research shows that we can take charge of how we respond moment-to moment. That means we humans need to understand how to make this shift so that we can use the most powerful tool on the planet!

Watch this 7-minute video from HeartMath to see the extent of the power of the heart—from an individual’s perspective right up to adding value to the collective frequency of humankind.

Train your Heart to take you Home

I’ve been chomping at the bit to tell you about this life transforming practice; but my guides kept saying, “Not yet…not yet.” Now they say “yes.” (That means we must be ready as a group to understand, accept, and follow through with this life-enhancing practice.) What I am about to share with you is deceptive. It is simple and yet profound. When practiced with intent, it is amazingly powerful. So, let’s get to it…

Heart Centering

Step 1: Focus your attention on your chest and keep it anchored there as long as possible.

Step 2: Release any thoughts or feelings that arise which cause you to move away from your heart focus. Every time you wander away from the center of your chest (your heart center), say the following sentence to yourself: I love and accept the part of me that (fill in the blank). This could be a feeling, a thought, a sensation whether it’s positive or negative. For example, you might say to yourself, “I love and accept the part of me that moves me away from my center.” You may not like to say this, but it is a human part of you and each part needs to be accepted so that it can be seen and released.

That’s it! It’s that simple. And yet, when practiced with intent, it has the power to change your life. Why? Because…

In essence, this practice is almost like a fast-track practice for waking up.

It just depends on the amount of time you put your focus on your heart and the amount of time you practice. You can practice anytime—in the morning upon waking, at night when going to sleep, during the middle of the night if you find yourself awake, or any time throughout the day.

The thing is that switching your focus from your head to heart changes everything. It’s the difference between living life through the lens of the separate, automatic, body/mind system or experiencing life through your higher Self, the quantum field of which you are an integral part. In reality you, are not separate. You are actually made of the raw magical substance of love. You are always connected to this invisible energy Source.

To live in this way is our fondest desire—to integrate our higher self into everyday life, to live our most authentic self, to participate in the flow, and to co-create with Source.

What you may experience in this practice

As you engage this Heart Centering Practice, there are some things you may experience:

This practice is simple, yet it may seem impossible at first. (That’s what happened to me.) After some practice, you will begin to be more nuanced in your observation. You will notice that you are continually being drawn away from the center of your chest. You will very easily lose your heart-focus and migrate into your usual mind-focused habit of conjuring up tidbits of information that are seeking attention. When you do this, it means that you are not totally coming from your heart. So, when this happens, just say, “No thank you; I’ve been going off center all my life, now I want to experience my heart’s information.” But each time you notice you’ve wandered off you will be reminded to return to your own Heart-Center.

Your sense of gravity may seem to deepen. Through the heart lens, you become an objective observer. There is no judgment, no expectation, no tension. It’s just “right-on” present experience which is guided from the field of infinite wisdom. This is the lens which yields the most delicious love and joy.

Some days this practice will be easier than others. Try not to look ahead at what you still want to achieve. Instead, give yourself credit for each time you return to center. If you find yourself spontaneously going to your chest at any time of the night or day, congratulate yourself even more on the success you’ve already achieved. (After a lot of practice, your mind will be very happy to let the heart do its work.)

“It’s much easier to act your way to a new way of thinking than it is to think your way to a new way of acting.”

— Henk J. M. Schram

When you find yourself getting down on yourself (as we all do) just say, “I love and accept the part of me that gets down on myself”, or “I love and accept the part of me that can’t do this today”, or “I love and accept the part of me that feels hate, or grief, or shame”, or “I love and accept the part of me that is burdened with the world”. Remember, these are all just parts that have been crammed into your subconscious, and they are coming up to be made transparent and cleared.

The good news is these troubled parts are chock full of life-giving energy which is now consciously coming up to be cleared. This is exactly what we want—old energy transforming into new energy that can be used in a positive way in the world.

So, go ahead, start practicing today, right now. In the end, you have nothing to lose, and so much to gain by engaging with this mind-blowing, heart-opening practice.

Coming out of the Box: Do I dare?

“Outside the Box” by Adam Swank | CC BY-SA 2.0

Am I brave enough to come out of my box?

Last time, we talked about all the hidden things that have prevented us from being our authentic selves. We also gave contemporary evidence that we can learn to overcome our Shadow limitations and move into our Gifts. But now we face a decision.

  1. Are we going to keep trying to ignore the hurtful things that come up inside? Are we going to continue to store them in our basement and try to deny them? Yes, we can stay in our old, familiar, subconscious perspective (even if it continues to make us feel lousy) simply because it’s what we’ve been used to doing all our lives. Or…
  2. Can we decide to come out of our comfort zones and do something different? Do we have the courage to dive in and resolve our recurring aggravations? (You know, the usual ones that keep coming up to hold us in place.) This is the tough choice. Change takes effort, dedication, and courage.

But here’s the thing. The effect of this choice determines the course of the rest of our lives. Think about it. If we decide to keep things the way they are, our Shadow-selves will continue to haunt us.

Fear and distress will become themes in our daily lives. Denying the underlying disturbances that keep us in status quo will prevent us from experiencing our Gift-selves. We will be unable to come out of the box and fulfill our Source-given potential.

To help you discover what the right choice is for you, I offer you this personal inquiry. Please read each section slowly. After each section, close your eyes and take the time to contemplate what the words bring up for you.

Personal inquiry: Am I brave enough to come out of my box?

Stop for a moment. Pause. Feel the space inside your hands. Feel the space within your feet. Feel inside your head. What’s there? Space! Oh my, who am I?

What have I done? Have I accidentally learned to live inside a familiar, confining box! It’s no one’s fault. My parents and teachers didn’t know how life really works. I didn’t mean to create this close-fitting garment, this capsule, but here I am, same old feelings and concerns, coming up again and again.

If I’m honest with myself, I can feel some fear inside, some sadness. Underneath, there are very subtle feelings of which I’m not usually aware. How did I get here?

Since I came into this world, my energy has splintered. A lot of my energy goes into my head. I can feel some energy in my body. But somehow, I sense there is a great deal of energy that’s still hung up, waiting to see if I’m ever going to feel safe enough to come out of my box.

I know I have my own patterns, beliefs, thoughts, and feelings, but are they really who I am? It’s not like I actually choose them. They just come up unbidden. Automatic.

Wait a minute, let me contemplate this for a moment. When I close my eyes and really feel into the space inside me, I don’t think that I’ve actually discovered the whole truth of who I am, or who I could be.

There is more. There is a deep part of me that knows I’ve been living from within a confined place. It’s stuffed with beliefs and patterns, like a default mode that runs on auto pilot.

Yet, if I allow it, there is another part of me that feels more expansive, spacious, and empty. If I permit myself to go to this place, I can sense emptiness in my hands, my feet, my head. This emptiness is also a part of me. And it doesn’t feel scary, even though I don’t know what it’s about. Curious.

I think I may have actually lived myself into a box. Do I dare come out? Do I dare to look, feel, and explore more deeply? Who knows, I just might be one of those “energy beings” that I’ve been learning about. Really, what’s the worst thing that can happen? This could be an adventure, a branching out. Do I dare?

Note: Now is a good time to write down, or say out loud to yourself, what you’ve discovered during this personal exploration. Who knows, there may even be more that wants to come up. Go ahead, allow, be surprised—for better or worse. Take the chance.
