In my last post I talked about what Consciousness Technology is and what I see as its main element, along with some of the things it can be used for.
But just like with other subtle things, its concepts are so impossible to really put into words that sometimes you get a better idea of it if you know what it is not.
The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.
~ Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching
So let’s go ahead and flip it around for a more complete picture.
What Consciousness Technology Is Not
Of course, it’s not a lot of things, but here’s a list of some of the things you might wonder about.
It’s not energy work.
By the time something is “energy”, it’s already becoming something. It’s further along on that continuum toward material than pure consciousness is.
consciousness -> energy -> manifestation
Even though energy is very subtle, it’s more dense than that extremely subtle field of nothing — and everything … that field of pure potential that we’re concerned with.
It’s not “running energy”.
Moving or “running” energy is part of some holistic energy work modalities such as Reiki or Pranic Healing. Techniques that direct energy to different aspects of the “energy anatomy” such as meridians, chakras, your aura, your emotional body, your physical body, etc. are not what this is about.
It’s not doing something … or doing anything.
There are lots of modalities out there that are very subtle but require some type of activity, steps, or techniques. Again, not Consciousness Technology.
With Consciousness Technology, you truly are a door, not a doer.
It’s not mental or emotional processes such as visualization, Law of Attraction, etc.
Once you start visualizing and intending, you’re unavoidably limiting it, for it has no bounds nor defined form to take.
It’s not anything that takes time.
In fact, even before I do a session, I often recognize that it is already “done”. Often, clients report changes beginning to occur as soon as we’ve scheduled one.
So why schedule time for a session? I used to wonder that too. But for one thing, my Holographic Emergence™ sessions include a little more than just Consciousness Technology. And a lot of people who practice Consciousness Technologies often combine them with other modalities.
The point here is that Consciousness Technologies can have instantaneous results.
It’s not a technique.
No elaborate (or even simple) set of steps is required.
It’s something that’s always available to you and everyone.
Even though I can present ideas and offer steps, in the end they are only pointers to help guide you to discover the “technology” of consciousness for yourself.
Once you’ve discovered it, you interact with it however you see fit.
I could go on and on here so just know this:
It’s not anything that isn’t simply about just holding that space of pure potential where anything is possible. That space of magic and miracles.
It’s not excluding, either.
Now that I’ve told you what it’s not, in a way you can’t exclude those things because Consciousness Technology is inseparable from consciousness which is all-inclusive.
It includes all of life because everything is consciousness.
In this world before words, there is only the real — undivided, ungraspable, already present. ~ Byron Katie, A Thousand Names for Joy
What I’m saying sounds a little like a paradox but it’s not, really.
It’s just that conceptually, the essence of Consciousness Technology is predominantly about accessing pure consciousness, unmanifest.
And it’s important to approach it purely like that, for that is the foundation of how and why it works.
But we are also living in the world of manifestation, where there is duality. There is this, not that.
So it helps to get an idea of what it’s not.
But in practice, we exclude nothing. If something that I listed above “presents itself” as useful, we use it, it’s that simple.
So for example, if you’re doing a Consciousness Technology session and are guided to do Reiki, you just do it! My Holographic Emergence™ sessions often include intuitive impressions that I get due to my being in such an open, receptive state. And although people find them interesting and even helpful, they aren’t a necessary part of Consciousness Technology either.
The way I think of it and the reason it can be helpful for you to allow those things is that it is the potential beginning to manifest through you — of its own accord.
So … I hope I’ve helped clarify a bit more what this crazy new thing called Consciousness Technology is.
If it’s outside the box and a little — or a lot — unbelievable, then chances are, that’s it!
See you next time, when you’ll hear how to access “The Field“.
