A few days ago I was doing a Holographic Emergence session with a client. She commented that she was feeling dizzy.
Believe it or not, this happens often, and is a good thing!
It’s one of the indications that a shift is occurring.
During Matrix Energetics seminars, it’s common for people to get wobbly or actually collapse while we’re doing practices with each other.
Which is why I have my clients sit or lie down when I’m not there with them in person (i.e. a phone session). That way a wobble or collapse becomes merely a sense of dizziness or some similarly innocuous sense of disorientation.
Let’s Look with Quantum Eyes
I can’t pretend to know for sure what’s going on but this quote from Deepak Chopra’s fascinating book The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire is a good starting point (my emphasis via bolding):
So it is only in our consciousness that our limited senses create a solid world out of pure energy and information.
But what if we could see into the quantum domain — if we had “quantum eyes”?
In the quantum domain, we would see that everything we think of as solid in the physical world is actually flickering in and out of an infinite void at the speed of light.
Just like the frame-and-gap sequence of a motion picture, the universe is an on-off phenomenon.
The continuity and solidity of the world exists only in the imagination, fed by senses that cannot discern the waves of energy and information that make up the quantum level of existence.
In reality, we are all flickering in and out of existence all the time. If we could fine-tune our senses, we could actually see the gaps in our existence. We are here, and then not here, and then here again. The sense of continuity is held only by our memories.
~ Deepak Chopra: The Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire
Don’t you love that?! Isn’t it wild?!
The cool thing about Emergence is that we are working from that “void” between the flickers. We take advantage of these quantum principles.
So as things shift, when you blink back into existence, you’re enough different than you were before that you can experience it as an odd sense of disorientation.
The reason you blink back slightly differently than you would otherwise is because with Emergence we adjust the patterns of light and information which inform you as a particular manifestation.
At least this explanation makes a lot of sense to me.
The Power of Now
So think about that for a minute.
That means that your existence in any given moment is separated (in an important sense) from your existence in the “next moment” (as you perceive it).
It’s very related to BEing just in this one moment. (Which is essentially the “state of magic and miracles” which I enter when I do a session.)
That also means that right now, you can experience yourself independent of any past or future if you want to. As if there is no past nor future, just now. (I have to laugh when I say “just” now, because there’s no “just” about it! The now is eternal, everlasting, with no beginning or end. Have you ever found an end to now?)
Here and Now Exercise
Here’s something I like to do now and then and it’s really rather freeing.
It can also help you begin to be aware of (and then break out of) some of your unconscious assumptions.
Now, let’s see if I can describe it well enough for you to do it …
- Close your eyes. (Okay okay, you can read the next steps first, tee hee.)
- Experience yourself right here, right now, and that’s it. You are not involved in an activity, experiencing a certain mood, in a certain place or anything. You’re just here, right now, and only this instant exists. Can you get that sense?
- Realize that no particular “next moment” is inevitable. There is nothing else attached to here and now.
Notice, too, how conditions or even situations can not exist in this moment because by definition they both require continuity.
Feel the freedom and possibility in that!
So tell me: Did that exercise take you to an unusual sense of this moment’s context and/or a different understanding of your place in a “timeline”? (If not, then maybe I didn’t explain it well enough. Let me know in the comments, please!)
The Pure Potential of Now
So without even getting into how Emergence actually plays in that void between flickers to influence what will emerge in that “next” moment, at least appreciate that what does emerge isn’t a given.
There is an infinite number of possibilities. There really is!
We are so used to just expecting the next moment to be like the last that it usually is.
Thanks for being here and now with me!
Did you experience a sense of possibility with the exercise? Can you imagine any other applications of this? I bet you can — I’d love to hear it!
