Chakra CardsI’ve used a lot of oracle card decks and would rate Chakra Wisdom Oracle Cards by Tori Hartman above average.

Oracles are helpful to reference when considering a question or issue, as they help trigger intuition and insights.

Some work better than others, and this is one of the better ones.

What I like the most is that for each card, there’s quite a bit of material, offering a good chance of hitting on what feels “just right” with regard to considering the issue from a different viewpoint, noticing something you hadn’t before, gaining more clarity, etc.

Individual Cards

For each card, there’s — of course — the card itself. Often something from the image will jump out at me. I like the illustrations by Gretchen Raisch-Baskin, and they have just the right amount of complexity.

Using the Guidebook

Within the guidebook, for each card, there is a title word, a quote, a legend (enjoyable!), an inspiration, a personal inquiry, key ideas, keywords, and a meditation.

That’s quite a lot of raw material to work and play with!

There’s also the card’s general category, or chakra, with interesting write-ups on each of those. Along with that is listed the chakra color and some implications of that.

You can also access what you already know about the colors and/or chakras, which for many of you is quite a bit of extra information since they are already pretty well-established in the main-stream.

The guidebook instructs you on using various spreads or layouts in case you aren’t familiar with them. And even if you are, Tori has put her own spin on them and her variations are fun to play with.

Packaging

The packaging is really nice but with a few tweaks it could be exceptional.

The main box easily pulls out of its jacket with a little ribbon.

Within the box is an indentation which holds the cards, and the guidbook sets nicely on top.

My only complaint is that the indentation is not fastened to the bottom of the box, so the bottom cards slide around and get stuck underneath it. This is remedied by using a rubber band around the deck, but I’m sure that’s not what was intended. ;-)

Summary

All-in-all, this is a fun deck to use, and because of its broad range, you’re likely to find something that rings true for you in any draw/reading, and which offers you just the guidance you need.

I recommend it.

Note: I received these cards for free for review purposes and this review reflects my honest evaluation.

Quantum CreativityFirst, I’ll start off by saying that I’ve read several of Amit Goswami’s books, and would be happy to read all of them! Although he’s an accomplished physicist, consciousness is of primary interest to him, especially its interplay with what he knows of quantum physics.

His books are a perfect combination of both of those topics, and he’s very good at explaining just enough quantum physics and just enough about consciousness to explain how and why they are dependent upon each other.

He’s very good at putting all of this in lay terms and writing in an engaging way that not only keeps you interested, but fascinated.

Think Quantum, Be Creative!

This particular book, Quantum Creativity, includes the fundamentals of those two topics, and then builds upon them to address our creativity specifically.

Much of creativity itself requires paradigm shifts, and — as you might expect if you’re familiar with this author — this book itself offers one!

Goswami begins by explaining the creative process along with how it actually works. Much of this is unique to how he understands it, and during the time period I read the book, I often found myself reflecting on how it applies as I went about my daily life.

I read this book specifically to see if he would address the unique manifestation process I’ve observed in the various forms of Quantum Consciousness (QC) Technology. Although he didn’t touch on that type of creativity/manifestation specifically, much of what he did discuss has enabled me to extrapolate for some additional ways of playing with the process in my own QC practice (Holographic Emergence™).

My favorite section was that on spiritual creativity where he discusses inner and outer creativity, self-realization, and enlightenment. It was wonderful hearing from an expert how all of these connect with each other.

Practical Application

Besides giving you a good understanding of the process (from which you can invent and explore — i.e. create! — your own ways to use it), he goes several steps further by showing you how to make use of it.

First, he gives examples of its application in several life area, for example, in the arts, in business, and in society. You’ll get a good idea of how expansive this process can be.

Then he ends with another of my favorite sections “Bringing Creativity to the Center of Your Life”, where he gives you very specific ways in which to apply the ideas in your own life. He writes about each of 7 suggested practices with a perfect amount of detail so you can begin to practice immediately. Several of these help put you into the “Open State” of which I write and which I consider an integral element of creativity, intuition, and of course, Quantum Consciousness itself.

Although I didn’t think I needed to read “yet another” book about creativity, I’m glad I read this one and that I have it to refer to. I’m sure I’ll refer especially to the steps he so thoughtfully included near the end as I practice what he suggests to enhance my own access to what he calls my “quantum self”.

Highly recommended!

Lotus openingAs you expand your conscious awareness, your intuitive faculties expand right along with it. It can’t be helped.

Everyone is intuitive to some degree.

We have so much information available to us all the time, but we just forget to pay attention.

Today we’ll discuss a few more ideas to help increase your awareness, and thus your intuition.

First, intuition is defined as:

  • Immediate cognition. The ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.
  • The act or faculty of knowing or sensing without the use of rational processes.
  • The power or faculty of attaining to direct knowledge or cognition without evident rational thought and inference.

Notice how the definitions explicitly eliminate rational thought from the equation.

When we can be purely aware, without interference of the rational process either to figure out what something means or to rationalize why it can’t possibly mean what it feels like it means, our intuition flows freely.

And if you combine that with becoming more deliberately aware, your intuition goes through the roof – literally!

3 Tips to Increase Your Intuition

Here are some ways you can deliberately increase your awareness and thus your intuition.

1. Be Aware Both Deeply and Broadly.

a. Focusing provides the depth.

If you want to get an impression of something in particular you would rest your attention easily on that thing (or person or situation) and see what you notice. Stay open to anything. You can ask yourself pointed questions about it.

In other words, probe.

Allow your attention to go more deeply than your normal senses might take you.

b. Opening provides the breadth.

To do this you can intentionally expand your awareness to the peripheries and beyond.

For example, as it relates to sight, let your eyes rest on the wall (or area) in front of you and see what you might notice literally in your peripheral vision. (Remember Eagle Eyes?)

Here again, notice what you are physically seeing but also let yourself see with your mind’s eye. Do some areas seem “dark”? Especially lively? Icky? Attractive? Are any calling for your attention in some way? Notice all these things.

While practicing both of these, have confidence in your experience and above all, don’t judge it. Just notice it for now.

These perceptions are packed with information and making them conscious will help allow them to reveal themselves purely.

2. Open to Surprises

This can be practiced while you’re deliberately doing intuitive work, or even as you go about your day. (It helps to set it as an intention.)

Especially notice those quick little thoughts — and especially non sequiturs — that flit across your mind. They are often a message, and quite an obvious one.

3. Notice What You Notice!

This one can be powerful.

There is usually a good reason for you to notice one thing over another. It’s not always so apparent at the time, but if you make a note of these things, it’s not uncommon to later realize that it was relevant to something going on in your life. If you can catch the relevance at the time, all the better. (Remember my story about the ravens? Like that!)

So these are a few simple ideas for easily expanding your awareness.

They can greatly enhance your intuitive awareness by opening new channels in your habitual modes of experiencing.

If you play around with these ideas and activities enough, you will likely notice some interesting and applicable things right away.

Do any or all of these tips call to you? Then play around with it/them.

And enjoy!

Interconnected OneLife has much more richness and depth to it when you can live it consciously. And a highly  rewarding and straightforward way of being conscious is to recognize the interconnectivity of everything.

At the same time, even  saying “every-thing”  implies that there are separate things — and of course, there are, in this dualistic dimension.

Interconnectivity & Oneness

But a better way to approach this idea is  to recognize that  everything is not just connected, it’s all one.

At that level, there isn’t even a thing and a no-thing, it’s all just one. One whole thing.

So it’s great if you can recognize at least the interconnectivity of everything, and better yet: the oneness.

And this means living in a holistic manner.

Knowing vs. Believing

It also helps to keep in mind that this doesn’t mean just thinking it’s likely so.

It means re-cognizing it, or “knowing it again”.

When you tap into the feeling and/or knowingness of this reality, of oneness, you can’t help but be more consciously aware.

Your antennae are on the lookout for connections.

And then, as you actively look for connections and interrelationships, you’ll notice that you have greater access to your own intuitive wisdom.

It means that those birds up there are not separate from what’s going on with your upcoming party. Hunh?

A Lesson from the Ravens

A few years ago, I had invited a group of people for a dinner party.

I was providing all the food and had been preparing for days. 7 people had RSVP’d, and I had planned accordingly.

But that morning, I was sitting in our outdoor jacuzzi, and suddenly there was a ruckus overhead. As I looked up, I saw 4 ravens flying right overhead.

Something about them seemed significant. Suddenly, I just “knew” what it was.

“Only 4 will be coming for dinner!” I gasped. Intellectually, I found it hard to believe — but I trusted that intuitive message.

And sure enough. 3 of the 7 people were no-shows. Didn’t even call!

So yes, those birds, and me, and the party, and the future, were all connected. Were all one.

Of course, holistic applies in other areas as well, or rather — framing that in a holistic way, where there are no “other areas”.

It applies everywhere to everything.

So, the whole supports being whole!

Holistic Health and Well-Being

We especially see this idea applied to health. And no accident, since both words, health and holistic (which has a related form, “wholistic”) come from the same root: whole.

It behooves us, when encountering any kind of health puzzle, to expand our vision from the part(s) to the whole. Open to what is going on in the entire system (i.e. body, emotions, environment, etc.) and often, just this opening reveals all kinds of ideas about how to make corrections and adjustments.

(I’ve got a great example I’ve been applying recently with what could have been a very serious health condition — but one story is enough for one post. I’ll just say that to my delight, I’ve confirmed that working with it holistically has turned it around 180°!)

Today:

Recognize, i.e. know again, the wholeness that is inherent in all … or rather, in the one. Allow (or even request) that knowing to reflect back to you whenever it’s helpful; whenever seeing the “whole” picture will benefit you.

You might even look for ways to apply this idea, for example: health conditions, situations that are occurring in your life, etc.

NOTE: I wasn’t even looking, but I just went for a short walk and couldn’t help but notice the ravens are super active today! I think they’re trying to say hello, and/or it’s the universe reconfirming today’s idea of its holistic nature. Anyway, so that you can be a part of it, I did a quick little one-minute video of some of their activity around here today. It will also give you a little taste of New Mexico. Enjoy!

So please take a look at how wholeness and/or oneness shows up in your life – and notice how that idea can be useful to you. :-)

Until next time!

Namasté.

Eagle EyesYears ago, I was introduced to the “eye-opening” concept of seeing with Eagle Eyes to expand your perception.

You see differently, and you see more.

This leads to enhanced creativity and intuition, among other benefits.

And although this concept is related to sight, it can really encompass all your senses, including your 6th sense.

Here’s the idea.

Latent Inhibition

In his book Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality, Dean Radin discusses the idea of latent inhibition. It’s an unconscious brain process that degrades our ability to pay attention to stimuli that have had no consequences in the past.

In other words, we automatically ignore things that are not critical to the task at hand. It’s what enables us to focus without becoming distracted and overwhelmed with all the millions of pieces of information in our perceptual field at any given time.

Healthy people tend to have high latent inhibition, since the more our sensory awareness is suppressed by what the brain considers irrelevant, the more we remain stable and focused.

Openness & Creativity

However, low latent inhibition is associated with the personality trait “openness to experience”, which in turn is associated with divergent thinking and creativity.

Tests done on Harvard graduate students showed that those with high creativity had significantly lower latent inhibition scores than those who were categorized as low creativity.

This underscores the idea that highly creative people have greater access to more of what the world presents.

Expanded Perception

So creativity requires “perceiving outside the box”. This is different than “thinking outside the box”, unless you experience thinking as perceiving a new thought. In my experience, thinking is often directed and active whereas perceiving is receptive. But in a creative state I notice that my thinking goes back and forth between being active and actually receiving ideas.

Creative ideas often come in a flash, and long ago I realize that they are much akin to intuition. In fact they’re so similar that being in a creative or intuitive state is almost — if not exactly — the same thing.

From this perspective, we can better understand why creative people report more psychic experiences. … Most people who believe in psychic phenomena are not ignorant or mentally deficient. They just see farther into the depths of the world than other people do.

~ Dean Radin, Entangled Minds

How to Enhance Your Creativity

Can you choose to lower your latent inhibition and thus expand your levels of perception and creativity?

My experience is definitely yes.

The more I do it, the more information I have conscious access to. My intuition is constantly getting more active and reliable, and I get so many creative ideas I can’t hardly keep up with them.

And all it takes is intention and practice.

And this is where the idea of Eagle Eyes comes in.

Eagle Eyes

Eagles fly high above ground. They have a bird’s eye view. And even though they may be looking at one particular area, they’re ever alert to anything at all that might move or otherwise catch their attention.

A super easy and fun way to practice expanding your perception is this:

1. Choose an object in your vicinity.

2. Look at it. Now soften your vision so you’re gently gazing at it.

3. Notice, while leaving your eyes there, all the other phenomena in your peripheral vision.

4. Allow your attention to focus on them even as your eyes remain gently focused on the initial object.

You can do this with all your senses. While holding mainly on one particular item (sound, sensation, etc.) allow your attention to roam, noticing even more with that same sense.

Another way to practice expanding your perception is this:

When you have a free moment, simply ask yourself

“What am I not noticing?”

If you want more direction than that, then use all your senses, inner and outer, to

a. first check your environment

b. then your body

c. then emotions

d. then thoughts

e. then vibrations.

You’ll be amazed at how many things suddenly come into your awareness!

Some will be things that could be obvious to anyone but some will be very subtle things that you may wonder if you’re really even perceiving as opposed to just imagining.

Trust that you are.

And if you practice these exercises regularly, you’ll start to do this naturally, and you’ll notice that you’ve become more creative and intuitive, sometimes startlingly so.

Here’s to your expansion!

A little friend in our yard last fall …

Certainly you’re aware that lots of people have bumper stickers stating what they brake for, such as:

“I brake for wildlife”

or (here in the Southwest)

“I brake for tarantulas”.

Just think. The way we all race around, going from here to there, if people didn’t brake for these things, their existence would be drastically reduced, right?

So it’s wonderful that people brake for those things!

In a similar way, our willingness to brake break for creativity will help it thrive, too!

The Creative State

Do you ever notice how, when you wake up in the morning, you’re in a super intuitive and creative space? That’s when a lot of exciting ideas come flooding in. You’re inspired.

This also happens when you’re relaxed and not in “thinking mode”, e.g. taking a walk, relaxing in a warm bath, driving long deserted stretches, etc.

In those cases, you’re not actively thinking … You’re more or less receiving. Your antennae are out there tuning into ideas that weren’t within your scope until then.

You’re connecting with that field of all possibilities … with your Source.

Touching in periodically with that space of no-mind puts you in that same state.

And that’s where your power, creativity, and intuitive wisdom reside.

Today we’re going to open to that space intentionally. And as you practice this one simple activity, both your creativity and intuition will get stronger and will grow day by day.

Today: Break for Creativity

Whenever you think of it, take a moment to break from what you are doing and simply be here now.

When you do this, let go of actively thinking and use all your senses. Look around and see what’s going on in your environment. Hear the birds singing? Feel the breeze on your arm? Notice any scents? Do you have any tastes in your mouth?

Do a quick scan from head to toe: What does your body feel like physically? How are you feeling emotionally?

And now, without focusing on any particular thing, just allow your attention to wander.

Is there any thought that pops into this empty space you are creating? Or anything you seem to just know? Note all of these things.

Taking these mini-breaks gives your creativity a little space to breathe.

More often than not, this will in turn lead to great ideas, inspiration, and yes, even intuition about what you were doing that you wouldn’t have had otherwise.

As you do this periodically, you’ll benefit from these brief “re-groupings” and you’ll notice that a wonderful clarity remains with you go about your day.

There will be space between your thoughts for ideas and inspiration to enter your awareness.

Those ideas are coming from your essence, and opening to them keeps you on track to fulfill your deepest dreams.

Awareness + IntuitionOne of the main elements of being conscious is that of awareness. And it’s not any special or tricky kind of awareness. It’s simply awareness.

And here’s the best part: We obviously all have an ability to be aware, at least those of us who are conscious beings (and I assume you consider yourself a part of that group)!

In fact, we cannot help but be aware — of something!

By refining and expanding upon this one simple quality, your consciousness — and intuition, too — will grow exponentially. Yet if it goes unnoticed, you’ll manage, but without the benefit of an integral part of your inborn guidance system.

We can even go so far as to say that operating without a broadened awareness is a handicap that most people are living with.

If you begin to play with being aware, it will become blatantly obvious that there is a lot of information available to you all the time that normally you simply just don’t notice. Or if you notice it, you don’t pay it any mind.

We are often so focused on the task at hand — which usually involves thinking about something rather than participating in the moment — that there is not even a little crack for awareness of anything else to enter.

3 Steps to Expanded Awareness

Here are 3 simple steps you can do immediately that will help you expand your awareness.

1. Intend

Intention goes a long way. This is such a simple and easy action that it’s easy to overlook the power of it. But taking a moment to set an intention can make all the difference.

So, intend to be aware and intend to notice. This will help whatever’s relevant come to your attention even when your attention is on other things.

Hint: It sometimes helps to set your intention to notice something that serves a purpose. So, for example, you might say “I intend to notice anything that might be helpful to me today”, or “I intend to notice something that will delight me today”, etc.

You can repeat this periodically but even once is better than not at all.

2. Notice deliberately

Short practices expand your consciousness and strengthen your intuitive muscles, too.

Take time periodically to:

a. Notice that you are aware, and

b. Notice what you are aware of

This will be interesting in itself, but you’ll also find that you will now be more consciously aware even when you’re not doing this noticing intentionally.

This brings what you are already aware of at a subtle level into the foreground. When we don’t do this, the awareness remains at a subconscious level, where it can do things like make you feel uncomfortable but you don’t know why.

Some of these new awarenesses will be practical observations that you would otherwise miss but which you can now tend to. If your body is cramped, get up and move around or take a good stretch! Thirsty? Get a drink of water! Slightly upset? What’s going on?

3. Remain open to surprises.

The more aware you are, the more you begin to notice things that you’re not expecting at all.

Staying open to surprises will help you not simply see only what you would expect to, but also those new things that your mind would automatically dismiss.

Expect the unexpected! It helps you notice it, which is half the fun.

So these are but a few of the many exercises you can do to increase your awareness.

They’re intended to open some new channels in your habitual modes of experiencing.

You may not get any big a-ha‘s at first, but if you practice them enough, you’ll find your awareness and intuition opening up in exciting, new ways.

Here’s to your expansion!

Today, I have an exciting announcement.

At least, it’s exciting to me –  and I think to you, too!

OM Times online magazine and website is hosting a 30 Day Conscious Living Challenge: Renew Your Soul, throughout June.

And I am very excited to be their Quantum Consciousness expert!

I’ll be providing OM Times with one of the many tracks you can follow if you want to challenge yourself to live more consciously.

The track I’ve created is The ABC’s of Actively Being Conscious — and notice that it even fits in with the “Open State” series I’ve been posting here recently. (Because actively being conscious, the way I practice it, does include entering the Open State.)

For each track, there will be a new article each day for all 30 days. (And boy oh boy, I have been super busy preparing all of them!)

I’ll post access information as we get closer to the challenge so you can follow my track if you’d like. And there will be lots of other fascinating tracks for you as well.

For now, you can go to the OM Times 30 Day Challenge page for more information.

It’s going to be great so please help spread the word (buttons below). Thank you!

Frozen Shoulder - Healed!Welcome to the 2nd article in my new series about the Open State.

(Click here for the first article which introduces the series and covers why the heck you should even care about the Open State.)

★   ★   ★

I want to start with something kind of fun and amazing!

I’m going to show with an example why you want to care about this.

It involves a complete healing of my frozen shoulder.

I’m also including the audio from a private session I did on myself.

So you’ll not only see the usefulness of the Open State, but also open your mind to what’s possible, a super-helpful frame of mind to be in to really make use of the Open State.

If you haven’t been reading along up until now, you might enjoy perusing my last set of articles about the value and importance of an open mind.

It really is a prerequisite for making use of the Open State — at least when it comes to facilitating magic and miracles! (And who wouldn’t want to do that?)

If you can’t believe in *magical* possibilities, you’re not as likely to manifest them.
Open to the Possibilities and Emerge!

Can you let go of what you think you know and open your mind wide to all the possibilities?

This is about the dance between and open mind and the Open State, and how they both enhance each other.

And here are some of my favorite books that can help immensely.
10 Books to Blow Your Mind Wide Open

Wow, You Really Healed Your Frozen Shoulder?

Actually … no.

Note I don’t say that “I” healed my shoulder. I simply accessed “The Field” (by entering the Open State) and let it do the rest.

Here’s the background.

Awhile back, I’d developed what’s known as a “frozen shoulder”, although I didn’t think about it that way. (Richard Bartlett says when we hook into a diagnosis, it’s like a curse. Think about it. You sort of set it in stone as your reality.)

I could barely lift it to be parallel to the ground, and for awhile, not even that. This was as good as it got, even after numerous intensive treatments by professionals. They had essentially given up on any significant improvement without expensive, ongoing physical therapy or surgery.

So that sets the stage, in a nutshell.

How the Healing Unfolded

Since I’ve already written about my healing process as it occurred, I’m listing the articles that contain the details.

Together these articles reveal the key to how it finally healed 100% using the Open State. (Search each one for “shoulder” to see what was going on at the time.)

They also have useful information and exercises you can apply right now.

This first might be outside your comfort zone about what our bodies even are, but it’s one of my very favorite posts. Even I still refer to it from time to time. ;-) Open your mind to the idea that our bodies may not be a “solid” thing. It has lots of great quotes by Deepak Chopra.
Your Magical Mind, Magical Body

Here’s a holistic view of what was going on with my shoulder. I took advantage of some amazing signs, synchronicities, and even a channeled message. They all played a part in some powerful guidance that helped get me on a healing track.
Does Your Guidance Have to Scream to Get Your Attention?

In this post I only mention it along with other things I’ve used Emergence for. I’m including it because you can see where the Open State fits into the entire Emergence process which is nicely summarized. (Pay attention to the section ”The Field” which is where I talk about “the state” which is what I now call the Open State. Toward the end is a link to a popular post that guides you into the Open State.
Activate Magic and Miracles With Me!

Here’s one where I use the “Magic Mirror” tool (suggested by my channeling guide) with much success — in fact my shoulder completed its healing as a result of this work, I’m sure of it. This post also tells exactly how you can do this too.
Heal Your Paired Body Part :: The Magic Mirror Tool

A Private Healing Session

And now … I’m sharing an audio with you of one of my private sessions with myself so you can get a feel for what transpires.

It was one of just a few sessions with my shoulder.

At that point, I could only lift my left arm about 45-90 degrees (so at best just parallel to the floor).

I was guided to stand in front of the mirror and do a session on “that person in the mirror” (oui, c’est moi!) as if for someone else.

You’ll hear me mention a two-point which is a Matrix Energetics technique.

I also have what I call “healing burps”. These started when I learned to channel and are indications that things are being processed and are shifting/healing.

Also, at one point (maybe two) you’ll hear me get suddenly emotional. That’s not uncommon and again, just shows that things are moving.

Patti does an Emergence session on her shoulder (Audio – 16 min.)
Listen below, or click here if you’re reading this in email.

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

In the audio, I refer to two books. Just FYI,

• When I talk about giving to the universe vs. taking — and using the mirror as part of an exercise for that — I’m referring to something I learned from The Presence Process by Michael Brown. It’s an excellent book that walks you through a powerful process.

• And then, I mention a book that my eyes fall upon during the session. It’s Byron Katie’s A Thousand Names for Joy, and one of my all-time favorites.

So … I hope the combination of reviewing the story of my healed – yes, healed! – shoulder along with listening to the session itself has opened your eyes to:

1. What’s possible, and

2. How the Open State (which is the foundation for Holographic Emergence™) is super useful!

Until next time … Namasté,

Patti

Do you want to blast your mind wide open but still remain practical? Are you finally ready to get out of your rut?

Then E-Squared: Nine Do-It-Yourself Energy Experiments That Prove Your Thoughts Create Your Reality by Pam Grout is the book for you.

You’ll even come away with some useful “tricks” to use in your everyday life for manifesting what you want.

“Seeing with your own two eyes that you can change reality simply by observing it will rewire your brain and divest you from old conditioning. Learning, through scientific experimentation, how deeply you are connected to the field of potentiality will literally set you free.”

~ All quotes by Pam Grout, E-Squared

First, I’m already on-board with the concepts presented in this book. I’ve been practicing and living them for quite some time now.

They really are valid and they really do work.

But I was still attracted to this book because I was curious to see if there was something new here, and above all, I thought it would be fun to do some experiments.

E-Squared did not disappoint.

Fresh Writing Style

I loved Pam’s writing style, it’s so fun and easy to read. She’s down-to-earth and quite funny. Besides being informative and revealing, E-Squared is entertaining and enjoyable.

And for aspiring writers (oui, c’est moi), it’s a superb example of using voice and analogy to get your point across. Very refreshing!

It’s also a great example of making concepts that could be merely theoretical into exercises you can apply in a useful way.

Energy and Consciousness

A lot of the experiments (all simple, easy, and fun) work with energy and the Law of Attraction.

But you also work with some underlying principles that are even more subtle, related to the Zero Point Field (of quantum physics) and consciousness itself.

It’s a nice mixture.

In fact, reality is nothing but waves of possibility that we have “observed” into form.

Logic and Openness

It’s also a perfect balance of left-brained logic and right-brained openness.

For each experiment, Pam offers a premise and the background facts are presented. You’ll enjoy some great quotes and references, along with ideas for further reading.

This is typically followed by some fascinating stories that are offered as anecdotal evidence, and to which you will definitely relate.

She then lays out the experiment for you to perform complete with a lab sheet that summarizes it nicely and which you use to keep yourself on track and note your results.

So fun!

Effectiveness and Validity

I can’t say that every experiment “worked” for me. And some I haven’t taken the time to do fully yet.

But a lot of them worked like a charm and it was fun watching them unfold into my life.

I did notice, though, that even when I didn’t get the results I wanted or expected, doing the experiment was revealing in some way and still worth my time. Usually, it was because I was not focused or consistent enough with it, or because my own energy was muddled in some way. Without the experiments, I wouldn’t have understood that so clearly.

It’s imperative to practice conscious, moment-by-moment awareness. Otherwise, you’re operating out of old encrusted beliefs, beliefs you downloaded before you were five years old. Do you really want a five-year-old running your life?

So in every case I learned some good lessons to apply as I move forward.

E-Squared: Recommended!

I definitely recommend this spirited book. Pam’s natural sparkle uplifts throughout and makes the whole experience a positive one.

I also think it would make a great gift for friends you might have who are “on the fence”. ;-)

If you play with these ideas and exercises like the author suggests, it will open your eyes to some new possibilities — especially if you’re new to this, but even if you’re not.

Hello all you powerful creators!

What fantastic creations are emerging through YOU this year?

I’ve spent part of each day this past week asking myself that same question.

And I want to share a process I’ve been using that will help you access your own power to create what your soul wants to bring into the world.

Dreams and Practicalities

I’ve been so enjoying making my way through Leonie Dawson’s Create Your Incredible Year Workbook, Planner & Calendar. Just a dent so far, but a powerful one!

And the more I get into it, the more I love it.

She stimulates your dreaming muscles, yet has an enlivening way of lifting your spirits even while she leads you through the practical steps of planning. It’s a perfect combination. (And as a hugely successful and creative woman, she knows of what she speaks!)

Unlike a lot of planning tools, one of the things she does that I’ve already gotten so much out of is she guides you through a review of your past year before you jump into the next.

I can’t believe I hadn’t thought of it before, but it’s extremely wise to evaluate the things that didn’t work, and why. (Of course, you also get to appreciate the gifts and successes.)

I’ve gotten so much valuable insight already, I can’t begin to tell you.

It’s so invigorating!

Get and Stay Connected With Yourself

Another thing I’ve been doing on my own, just to make sure I’m clearly connected with my essence as I dream and plan, is I take regular, short (3-minutes or less) connection times with my own be-ing.

I started out using a timer but as I’ve gotten into the swing of it, am no longer needing that.

The advantage is that it opens you to the space where your inspirations reside.

Or rather, it keeps you open to it.

It also helps you get down to what’s really going on. And easily.

Do you ever notice how, when you wake up in the morning, you’re in a super intuitive & creative space?

If you’re like me, that’s when a lot of exciting ideas come flooding in.

This also happens when you’re relaxed and not in “thinking mode”, e.g. taking a walk, relaxing in the jacuzzi, driving long deserted stretches, etc.

Touching in periodically with that space of no-mind reconnects you with that same state.

It’s where our power and intuitive wisdom reside.

It’s so simple it’s almost silly to even outline it here, but I will anyway.

A 3-Step Connection Exercise

As you sit down to work, set a timer for once every 1/2 hour or so. When it goes off (and also once as you begin) take a moment to touch in like so:

1. Take a deep breath in and as you do so, place your attention at your 3rd-eye area (between your eyebrows).

2. Exhale slowly and as you do so, relax your whole body. You’ll notice your shoulders drop.

3. Now as you finish exhaling, immediately drop one more level by moving your attention from your 3rd-eye down to your heart area. You can envision a little elevator taking you from your head to your heart.

Do you feel the difference? How still and quiet it is? Then you’re connected.

Gently hold your attention there awhile.

There’s no need to try to get a sense of anything. In fact, it’s best to simply notice the stillness for awhile.

That’s it! As you do this periodically, you’ll benefit from these brief “re-groupings” and you’ll notice that a wonderful clarity remains with you as you work.

There will be space between your thoughts for ideas and inspiration to enter your awareness.

Those ideas are coming from your essence, and opening to them keeps you on track to fulfill your deepest dreams.

A Match Made in Heaven

A glimpse of the spirit within the pages.

What’s becoming more and more clear to me as I practice this, is that Leonie’s workbook is a tight match to my own spirit.

The further you progress, the closer you feel to your own heart and soul.

And it keeps you in such an optimistic and enthused space. No drudgery in this process, I promise!

If you want to get your own, you can! I highly recommend it. (Treat yourself!)

Just go to her Workbook page and check it out.

It’s a teeny-tiny investment for a BIG payoff.

The enjoyment you’ll get from using it is itself a huge gift you can give yourself.

And I just know that the world, too, will much appreciate the creations you will offer as a result. :-)

With encouragement and joy,
Patti

Eufeeling!Dr. Frank J. Kinslow has written a magnificent book called Eufeeling! The Art of Creating Inner Peace and Outer Prosperity. It’s about how you can use what he calls “Eufeeling” to enhance your life and your experience of life, no matter what your life situation.

As the subtitle states, it’s a way to create both inner peace and outer prosperity.

What You’ll Learn

The process hinges around being able to experience Eufeeling, a calm state of presence, and much of the focus is on teaching you how to do that. It’s a simple process, explained very well, and all you need to do is try it out and — most likely — to practice it.

If you will commit to practicing Eufeeling in your daily life, then this, in itself, will help you love your life, no matter what that consists of.

Life is not about trying to see things in a positive light. Life is the positive light.

~ Eufeeling!

But you also learn how to apply Eufeeling to particular applications or intentions. There’s a lot of excellent instruction about intention and what that means in this context. If you already practice some form of intention work, you may be surprised at Dr. Kinslow’s suggestions. Exactly how you place intention is an important aspect of the process and this was one of my favorite sections.

… We tenderly open our awareness to our [intention] and then watch as it gently kisses the surface of Pure Eufeeling. This is the magical moment, the flawless conception, when all of creation awakens to your desire.

~ Eufeeling!

Is that a breath-takingly beautiful quote, or what?!

The book then goes on to show you how to use it for specific applications, and not only for yourself, but for others. In particular, it covers emotional states, chronic illness, material wealth, and general problem solving.

He closes by beautifully elaborating on how and why our practicing such an art helps humanity in general. I agree with him that it’s important, meaningful work and also that time is of the essence.

Enjoyable and Rewarding

I was happy to see that this book is very well written. As a former engineer (software), I very much appreciate this type of top-down approach, first giving us context, and then getting into detail.

The book is also well-ordered, starting with the basic concepts (which he makes it a point to clearly define — very helpful), methodically building on them, and culminating with how to apply all that you’ve learned. There are exercises throughout so you are adept at each foundational step before you move on to applications that rely on them.

Dr. Kinslow is a master of analogy and metaphor. He has an impressive ability to make esoteric concepts easily accessible. I also appreciated his down-to-earth sense of humor that ran through the text like a luminous thread.

All-in-all, his engaging style makes for enjoyable and satisfying reading.

Yes, It Works!

As to the usefulness of what he teaches here: My experience is that it works!

I see this as a form of “consciousness technology” with similarities to Matrix Energetics as well as my own adapted process called Holographic Emergence™. The “philosophy” (i.e. understanding, art, and science) behind it is very similar to what I’ve been doing since 2007, so of course I personally took to it like a duck to water.

Also included, in an appendix, is concise instruction on using his “Quantum Entrainment Triangulation Technique”, the essence of one of his other books (so a great bonus). It’s quick and easy and very similar to the Two-Point as taught in Matrix Energetics, and I’ve especially been enjoying playing with this.

For someone already familiar with consciousness technologies, it will expand and enhance your practice. At the same time, he explains it all so beautifully that even a novice could pick it up immediately and see some remarkable results.

I did a lot of his exercises, applying them to real issues in my life, and I did see results. I’m still experimenting with it for all kinds of things, and it’s more than satisfying … it’s fun!

Eufeeling! is Highly Recommended

I loved this book, and I highly recommend it. I honestly think everyone in the world could benefit from it and should read and practice it now! ;-)

If you play with these ideas and exercises like he suggests, I know you’ll be amazed. (And if you do, I’d love for you to leave a comment and let me know how it was for you!)

Stay Tuned for More

Unfortunately, I can’t say as much as I’d like in one short review. Stay tuned for more posts about this process with a lot more detail, beginning with how it compares with my process of Holographic Emergence™ (and perhaps with Matrix Energetics).

I’ll also share more about my experience with it, including how I applied it and what results I noticed.

Until next time, thanks for reading!

Dying To Be Me: My Journey from Cancer, to Near Death, to True HealingDying To Be Me by Anita Moorjani is one of my favorite books of all time, and believe me, I’ve read a lot of books.

There is so much more value here than you might expect from a book about a near-death experience (NDE). You will find it not only comforting with regard to death (your own or those you love) but it’s an affirmation of life, and inspiring in general.

Just as important, you’ll find it helpful in many practical ways.

Is This Book for You?

You can benefit from this book if:

  • You or someone you know is facing death
  • You’re grieving the death of a loved one, including a pet
  • You’re facing illness of any kind, serious or otherwise
  • You’re experiencing challenging emotions such as depression or lack of interest in life
  • You want to feel more whole, healthy, and vibrant
  • You simply want to feel better in general … happier, more at peace, more purposeful, etc.
  • You would like an enlightened way to understand or experience life and your place in it

As you can see, I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. And it’s a book that I envision myself reviewing periodically for my own benefit.

How It Unfolds

Anita begins by setting the stage with a brief biography of relevant parts of her life. She describes the experience of becoming incapacitated with terminal cancer, and I love that she describes its unfolding not only on the outside but from “the inside” as well.

But fairly quickly, she jumps right into the NDE. This is the part I want everyone to read who has ever lost anyone to death, or is facing it themselves. The way she describes it is breath-taking and eye-opening. It’s beautiful, actually, and you’ll never forget it.

And just as extraordinary is the explanation of how she then “came back” and proceeded to completely heal. Yes, completely! And how she learned to allow for this “unfolding of miracles” as she puts it.

Life Even Through Death

So it’s not just a book about death and what happens at that moment.

It’s even more a book about life; about who and what you are; about healing and wholeness … and about allowing your whole world to transform.

It’s fascinating to read how you — as your essence — live even through death. And much more freely than you probably are now!

So what does that mean?

How can you live with that same freedom even as you live your life?

Insights and Practices

In her quest to help others through her experience, she shares her thoughts about how you can apply what she’s come to know.

From her expanded understanding of reality, she shares in a way that you can apply in everyday life:

  • Why she got sick and how she healed
  • How to connect with the soul of your magnificence
  • Experiencing profound freedom in your life
  • Trusting the wisdom of the infinite self
  • What it means to Be (allow) vs. Do — and thus experience vast inner peace and a beautiful flow in your life

You’ve really got to read it yourself since there’s so much more to it than I could even put words to; pretty apropos given its expansive nature.

And I’m sure you’ll find your own gems within it, probably new and different insights and practices each time you read it, depending on your perspectives at that time.

It’s got a richness and depth to it that I enjoy applying and know I will for years to come.

Also Recommended …

Soon after reading the book, I came upon her audio Deep Meditation for Healing. Just like the book, I love it. Anita does a beautiful job of taking you into a relaxed, receptive state and reminding you of your magnificence, freedom, and power. You’ll actually feel it and come away more whole and with a new perspective.

It doesn’t replace the book, but it’s an awesome adjunct to it, or it could even stand on its own.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes, and true to form, they encourage complete honesty in our reviews. Still — no matter what — you can always rest assured that any reviews on this site reflect my honest evaluation.

Until next time, thanks for reading!

The art and science of consciousness technology.Whether you approach life with the right or left brain, as an intuitive or rationalist, this art and science of Emergence (a Consciousness Technology) can be both fascinating and helpful!

Art and Science

I remember making a choice in high school: Art or Science? Which direction to pursue?

I was very creative and a good artist, but I loved and excelled at math and science. Granted there are vocations that blend the two, but from where I sat at a tiny parochial school in a small town in the Midwest, I didn’t know that. I felt compelled to choose.

I ended up choosing a career as a software engineer, where I used logic all the time and got to work with some really smart people. It was a good choice for me since it was lucrative and I was able to raise my son (as a single mother) in the expensive San Francisco Bay Area quite comfortably. Of course there was a lot of creativity involved but my work was still primarily left-brained and logical.

Altered States of Consciousness

At the same time, I was interested in what’s often called “spiritual growth” as well. I learned my first meditation technique when I was 18 and studied many different disciplines, philosophies, gurus, teachers, methods, practices, etc. I continued to delve into all sorts of consciousness studies.

Admittedly, I also loved drugs, especially hallucinogens. I didn’t do LSD often like some people I knew, but I did it enough to find out that there are “worlds out there” that we can’t even imagine. Not necessarily the same as reaching altered states without the aid of substances, but not necessarily different in some important respects, either.

I also had a near death experience where I got a glimpse into yet another awesome world.

To this day I’m convinced that anyone who pooh-poohs the idea that there is much more to us and our world than meets the eye, then they are simply closed-minded and although they think we are foolish, they are only limiting themselves.

A Conscious Pragmatist

As a single mom (now grandma) and an engineer (now retired), I’ve always been inclined to deal with things sensibly and realistically. Not wholly but primarily left-brained.

I was always very pragmatic. I had to be.

But that didn’t mean that accessing and taking advantage of whatever these “other worlds” offered me contradicted that. In fact, doing so would be smart. So why not?

Why not a marriage of art and science?

Why not appreciate what our right-brain — and indeed, anything else we have access to — has to offer as well as the left?!

So although I’ve found that for me, drugs are not the answer (for various reasons), I am still wholly involved in raising and expanding my consciousness in natural ways. The difference is that now I approach it more experientially rather than theoretically, and suddenly it’s becoming clear in a way it never has before. Simple and powerful, it’s one of the most satisfying and meaningful areas of my life.

I’m also more than happy to take advantage of the naturally resulting expanded awareness and heightened intuition in order to access practical information and guidance that helps in everyday life. This delights me as I’ve always known intuition exists, and seeing how easy it is to access now is icing on the cake.

A Powerful Combination

When I first learned Matrix Energetics 6 years ago, I had no idea it was related to consciousness per se. And even after taking several seminars, it was only my own putting pieces together and adapting it to my life and my understandings that I began to see that consciousness is, indeed, an integral part of the technology. (At least the way I practice it through what I call Emergence.)

That’s why I like using the term Consciousness Technology (CT) rather than some of the other terms I’ve heard used. (This technology is popping up in various forms but is in such a new stage of life that it doesn’t have a well-known name yet.)

Sometimes it’s referred to in quantum physics or quantum mechanics terms, such as quantum or holographic, or it incorporates terms such as the Zero Point Field (or Matrix, or Energetics ;-) ) or related concepts. This is how it was presented to me, and I’ve done my share of research and reading from that perspective too. This is great when you come at it from the scientific angle.

But I continue to verify for myself that in a simpler and more experiential approach, it’s essentially based on consciousness.

And yet, the outcome is ultimately practical and useful.

The whole point of Emergence is to enhance our lives in meaningful ways, including — but not limited to — those primarily related to consciousness itself (such as attaining inner peace).

But what’s my point?

Emergence for Everyone

You, too, can come at this practice from any or all directions, such as consciousness, science, or even pure pragmatism.

So you may already be interested in developing an expanded or higher consciousness. You may have been interested in consciousness for some time and have an understanding of and experience with various modes of consciousness.

Or like me, maybe you’re a product of the (in)famous 60′s and have had expansive experiences a la Timothy Leary with LSD and other hallucinogens. Maybe you simply like playing around with altered states.

Or you’ve studied various “New Age” means of manifesting … or are familiar with the power of manipulating energy … or  already appreciate the “healing arts“.

Or maybe you are simply interested in being able to get useful results in the material world. Perhaps you’re an  engineer or white-collar/blue-collar worker who puts a lot of weight on what you perceive through your senses. You’re a cut-and-dried pragmatist who merely appreciates the power of intention and hard work.

Or you value science and like my physicist friend, you are fascinated and intrigued by this practical application of  quantum principles.

No matter.

Whichever direction you approach Emergence from, you’ll find value in what it offers.

No beliefs or talents are necessary in order to benefit from it. (In fact, strong beliefs can be a disadvantage.)

And if you want to actually practice it, there are no parts of it that are hard to learn, no matter what your background. And even though consciousness is an essential part of this technology, you don’t have to be a guru or master in order to begin to see results right away.

So if you are even wondering if Emergence is for you, then the answer is a resounding yes.

Yes!

You can benefit. And if you want to do it, that’s possible too.

The fact that you are intrigued is a good sign that you ought to stick around. (Get my posts via RSS feedreader or RSS email or sign up for my newsletter!) If you want to join the growing number of fans of this fascinating

Super-Charge Your Power to ManifestWhen I do

Holographic Emergence™,

I use a cutting-edge

Consciousness Technology

to super-charge our

power to manifest.

A few days ago, someone emailed and said “Can I ask you please – what is Consciousness Technology and can I read about it on your site? I don’t recall seeing that.”

Doesn’t recall seeing that?

Gasp!

Apparently, I’ve done a terrible job making it clear what this blog is about. Jeez!

This blog is primarily about what happens in one of my Holographic Emergence sessions (based on Consciousness Technology) and how you can do it too!

Here you learn:

  • Just what a “Consciousness Technology” is
  • How and why it’s so cutting edge
  • What makes it a whole new paradigm
  • How it transforms, shifts — and rocks ;-)
  • How it’s integrated with the zero point field (ZPF)
  • How it relates to words like quantum, holograph, and fractal
  • What it has to do with presence, awareness, and being
  • Why it’s not about doing, adding, or fixing
  • Why it’s not even about healing as it’s traditionally thought of

But most importantly, you learn:

  • How to apply it to manifest in a whole new powerful way
  • How to watch your world transform before your very eyes

It’s just the most powerful healing I’ve ever been through, Patti.  I’ve never experienced anything like this, it’s like a floodgate.

Manifest with Consciousness Technology

I’m struggling a little with how to present my main topic because most people don’t know this new paradigm of manifesting even exists!

What we do here is so new that it doesn’t even have a recognizable name. That’s because one hasn’t exactly been agreed upon by the various people playing and working in this field, but some have taken to calling it “Consciousness Technology”.

So it may take me some time to get it right, but to begin to make it more obvious what this blog offers, I’ve created a permanent area in my sidebar which I will update periodically.

Right now, it’s a subset of this:

5.  See what’s different!

So far I present the details of this idea mainly to clients via a Tipsheet they get to optimize the benefits of their session. (I see I need to do some posts about this!)

For now, here’s a recent comment from a client as she noticed what was different.

You can’t put a value on something like this. There’s just nothing that compares to the peace and the tranquility that I’m feeling right now. It’s not drug induced, it’s not alcohol, or anything. It’s pure God and energy that you’re able to plug into and … oh, it’s amazing. I can see endless potential for my life now that I didn’t feel before. It’s just amazing.

Believing that something can heal, or even that it might be possible, is often one of the first steps to healing it.

But sometimes, try as we might, really believing it can heal is hard, if not impossible.

Here’s a really fun way around that.

It’s a new way to apply my Emergence process that I stumbled upon a few months ago, and the best part is that it works like a charm — and even for serious issues.

A Desperate Need to Heal

I’d been having serious problems with my left shoulder for about 5 months.

It had gotten progressively more rigid, to the point where it was almost unusable. Simple but important tasks like getting dressed and fixing my hair were actually challenging. Worse, there were a lot of other activities I wanted or even needed to do that were simply impossible.

I’d gone to myofacial release therapy for awhile, but after several months of regular (and painful) treatments, I still could only get my arm about parallel with the ground, maybe slightly higher. The therapists were certain I needed a lot more visits.

I’d also been going to my “magic” chiropractor (plus plus). He’s an amazing holistic healer but even he was certain I’d developed calcium deposits and would never get my shoulder moving again without surgery.

So I was at a point where nothing was improving it anymore.

I decided to regroup and tune-in to my own intuition.

I got a strong sense that it was time I use my own proven “tools” on myself. Duh.

So I discontinued the expensive myofacial release, and decided my next chiropractic treatment would be my last.

Because my Holographic Emergence™ sessions are a combination of most of my skills (and certainly of the ones I most enjoy using), I decided to start there.

The Magic Mirror Tool Revealed

So I did an Emergence session which ended up including some channeling, and during it I got the message to do some mirror work.

I wasn’t sure what that meant exactly but once I was in front of the mirror I realized: If I lift my right arm (which I could do perfectly), the mirror image makes it look as though I’m lifting my left arm.

So in other words, I was able to see my “left” arm working perfectly!

It was an odd little mind-shift but I was able to momentarily “trick” myself into perceiving it that way, and even believe it to some extent.

This was pretty cool! It was super easy and it made me feel better somehow, so I repeated that simple little mind trick a few times over a few week period.

In addition, I did a few regular Emergence sessions at the mirror, using my reflection as a surrogate for me, as if I were doing them on that person in the mirror. (Surrogates are something you’ll learn more about in future articles.)

Long story short, it all worked!!

I am absolutely thrilled to say that I have recovered use of my left arm 100%. Yay!

You Can Heal Yourself

So I firmly believe that this is something you can apply when you’re having an issue with any of your “paired structures”, i.e. those symmetrical pairs of matching body parts like shoulders, hips, arms, eyes, etc.

All you have to do is this:

  1. Decide to open to the possibility that pretending can be useful, effective, and powerful.
  2. Get in front of a mirror where you can see both matching body parts.
  3. Get into “the state.
  4. Take a moment to do that little mind-shift that I described and operate your matching body part so you “see” your compromised body part work perfectly.
  5. Repeat this every now and then. Don’t stress out about it, just do it when you’re called to.

And that’s it!

Don’t dismiss the possibility that you will notice an improvement immediately.

I noticed increased range of motion that very first day.

And as time goes on, you want to watch for anything different. Anything at all.

As I tell people after a Holographic Emergence™ session, consciously acknowledge whatever new developments you notice. It may be that something that seems unrelated comes up, such as a friend recommending a new treatment, or you see something on T.V. that might be helpful, or you get a new idea about it.

None of this actually is unrelated of course. It’s all part of the holistic way that Emergence works.

And by the way, since everything’s interrelated, trying this out doesn’t mean you don’t do other things that common sense (or your doctor) suggests. Do continue with whatever you’re already doing, or if you feel you need more, do that! I continued doing my shoulder exercises (though honestly, not as regularly), treating my trigger points, taking certain supplements, being diligent about my posture, etc.

It all works together, naturally. That’s the beauty of it.

The “Creation Activation” last Thursday was extraordinary. The activation and all it entailed was truly uplifting, but I was especially impressed that we were given so many tools for manifesting our creations.

(For those unfamiliar, an “activation” is a group Holographic Emergence™ session.)

Sometimes during a Holographic Emergence™ session, you’re given some kind of tool to take away and use as you see fit.

Well, this time, there were 4 — count ‘em, 4! — tools for manifesting that were offered.

I’m guessing The Field felt everyone was adequately curious and adventurous enough that they could and would make use of them.

We did have a group of extraordinary individuals gathered, I will say that. ;-) Thanks to all of you who participated! We had some great energy going there, didn’t we?

Four Powerful Tools for Manifesting

Here are the tools that “showed up” during our activation.

These are examples of the type of supportive “consciousness technology” tools that you learn to use here.

1. Spigot for Creative Flow

The first was a spigot, like a water spigot. Because participants’ creative energy was turned on full blast, it was so that we could turn it down if it got too intense, and turn it back up whenever we want too.

2. A Helper Self

Next came a “helper self”. This is another version of ourselves that we can send off to do tasks for us. In reality we all are much more far-reaching than we know, with abilities to access and interact with everything.

A “helper self” is a useful way to more deliberately interact with expanded realities and abilities. (I’ve gotten remarkable results with this in the past. More about this some day!)

3. Message from Our Future Self

The third tool that popped up was a means of interacting with a version of ourselves that is yet to be, or rather existing but in a different “time”. We were given a message by this wiser and more evolved self which we could either receive right then and there or take with us to hear some other time.

4. A Customized and Customizable Module

And last but not least, we each received a module made especially for us.

A module is a specialized set of various kinds of energies (more on these as time goes on; they’re a Matrix Energetics concept).

Sometimes one will show up that’s customized for that person and situation, and that’s what happened this time. But there was something even more special about this one. It was not only customized already but it also allowed customization by the recipient. This is the first time I’ve seen this happen.

I know some of these sound silly, but that’s the fun of it, after all, and being in a playful state actually helps facilitate results.

Also, I’ve learned to trust whatever shows up during a session as being useful.

Sometimes the silliest things have the most profound effect.

Enhanced Creativity as a Result

I’ve already gotten some great feedback from participants (thank you!), and some of it fairly detailed about meaningful effects of each of these tools.

Plus, as I’ve mentioned before, sometimes (often!) the session begins to enhance your life even before we get together and “do” it. One participant said he’s been noticing improvements in his creative flow ever since I announced the activation. (It’s feedback like this that makes me feel soooo good that what I have to offer can make such a difference!)

As for me, I get an activation right along with everyone else, and I do feel some changes, I’m sure of it. I could hardly wait the few minutes for my netbook to boot to start writing this post. That’s a big change since often my ideas goe onto a list and become yet another to-do in my huge bag of to-do’s that I schlep around with me.

This really is different.

I also got an email in my inbox the very next morning about a creativity e-course that’s starting soon! I’m going to take part in it since I don’t think that was a coincidence, do you? Besides … I want to! It will be fun and you can join us too! Click here or on the image for more info. (I’m an affiliate of Leonie’s offerings — they are wonderful!)

It’s a part of my own emergence, after all. ;-)

In preparing for this week’s (free!) group Holographic Emergence Session™ where we will activate our creative process, I’ve been considering what the creative process means to me.

I keep coming back to this one simple idea that seems to form a foundation of how it works.

Because it will form the basis of our activation this week, and because it’s a useful concept in any case, I want to share it with you now.

Magnetic and Dynamic

Think of something you’ve produced from start to finish. Something you’ve conceived of, taken action on, and released out into the world.

No doubt it originated in an idea. This is the “magnetic” part.

And then it moved along a channel on its way to manifestation, which is the “dynamic” part.

I like the terms magnetic and dynamic to represent these concepts but a few other related words and concepts are:

Magnetic Dynamic
receive project
female male
feminine masculine
mother father
goddess god
moon sun
venus mars
right brain left brain
intuitive rational
holistic analytical

 

So in the context of creating, the magnetic can be thought of as getting in touch with our light, and the dynamic as actually expressing it.

If you look at the creative process as a timeline with the beginning being the initial conception (magnetic), and the endpoint being the final form, it’s as if there were a channel of energy moving the creation from its beginning all the way to its completion and release (dynamic).

Both parts of the process need to be operating well for creation to take place seamlessly.

There are many ways for us to enhance our ablities in both areas. I’ve already written about quite a few of them on this blog and I’ll continue to do so since the process of Emergence uses both of them, especially the magnetic.

Being conscious and aware of how you operate magnetically and dynamically can go a long way toward streamlining your own process. You can look objectively at where you may have weaknesses to strengthen, or strengths to optimize.

Integration or the Dance of Creation

Also important is how you integrate the two.

To really move something along the channel requires being in constant touch with both the inspiration or imaginal (magnetic) and the practical considerations and actions (dynamic).

It doesn’t just happen once. There are really a number of mini-cycles that take place within the over-arching conception-to-release cycle.

I like to think of it as a dance between our magnetic and dynamic. It’s an art, not a science, as one needs to constantly respond to the other. And in my experience, that’s what creation is about!

Creating requires that you keep your idea dancing along the channel as you help it manifest into form.

And that’s where the fun is, and the life!

That’s how and when you feel that life force coursing through you and you feel fully alive!

Dancing in the Light

A lot of the stumbling blocks I’ve run into are related to the dance.

If you’ve had difficulty manifesting your creations, you can shine some light on your dance steps.

Ask yourself if there’s anywhere in this channel where you regularly get hung up.

Some possible stumbling blocks are:

  • fears
  • distractions
  • boredom
  • “shoulds” that squeeze the joy out of your process
  • lack of information (without enough drive to push through)
  • any kind of “clog” (within you or “out there”)
  • things just stop
  • your focus dwindles off
  • any deterrent that you don’t have the motivation to examine or get past
  • you lose interest along the way
  • you just move on (and you may not even notice)
  • you make it so “big” that you get overwhelmed
  • you never even start it
  • lack of trust in what your intuitive/creative conception
  • too much “editing”
  • discouragement
  • depression
  • apathy

Ah, the list could go on and on.

But here’s something worth doing.

Simply bring the stumbling block into the light. Make it conscious to yourself. Become aware of it.

It’s an important first step in moving past it and is sometimes all that’s needed!

Join Us For the Creation Activation!

Another way to keep (or get) your creative process flowing is to participate in a Holographic Emergence™ session.

And you can try one free this week by joining us in our group session — our Creation Activation!

Let’s clear the way so we can create spectacularly!

We’ll enhance the magnetic and dynamic, and get the two dancing together to our own music.

That’s the focus of this week’s activation. (An “activation” is my name for a group Holographic Emergence session. If you want to know more about what an activation is, you can see my “Spring Activation” announcement.)

Join us! It’s FREE and it’s taking place this Thursday at 10:30a MT.

At that time, the Sun and Moon will be “dancing” together in Cancer (the Moon’s sign) in Pushyami, a very auspicious nakshatra. Next month they’ll both be in Leo (the Sun’s sign), a very creative part of the zodiac. Let’s get ready so we can take advantage of that time that is so supportive of creating!


This free activation is for newsletter subscribers only.

If you’re already a subscriber, you’ll find the registration link in the latest newsletter (from last Thursday — check your inbox).

If you’re not yet a subscriber, you can subscribe here, and you’ll be emailed a link to the newsletter that has the registration link.

Finally, if you’re a regular reader but really really don’t want to subscribe to my newsletter, just send me an email and ask me to register you. That works too.


And now: Do you have any tips about ways to enhance or streamline our creative process? As always, I’d love to hear ‘em! Thank you!

Do you ever wish you were just a little bit more creative? Or even a lot more?

How about more intuitive?

Well, I’ve noticed over the last years that as I practice this one simple activity, both my creativity and intuition have gotten stronger to the point where I’m often astonished. And both continue to grow day by day.

Let me tell you about this easy practice and why it works so well.

Latent Inhibition

In his book Entangled Minds: Extrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality, Dean Radin discusses the idea of latent inhibition. It’s an unconscious brain process that degrades our ability to pay attention to stimuli that have had no consequences in the past.

In other words, we automatically ignore things that are not critical to the task at hand. It’s what enables us to focus without becoming distracted and overwhelmed with all the millions of pieces of information in our perceptual field at any given time.

Healthy people tend to have high latent inhibition, since the more our sensory awareness is suppressed by what the brain considers irrelevant, the more we remain stable and focused.

Creativity

However, low latent inhibition is associated with the personality trait “openness to experience”, which in turn is associated with divergent thinking and creativity.

Tests done on Harvard graduate students showed that those with high creativity had significantly lower latent inhibition scores than those who were categorized as low creativity.

This underscores the idea that highly creative people have greater access to more of what the world presents.

Expanded Perception

So creativity requires “perceiving outside the box”. This is different than “thinking outside the box”, unless you experience thinking as perceiving a new thought. In my experience, thinking is often directed and active whereas perceiving is receptive. But in a creative state I notice that my thinking goes back and forth between being active and actually receiving ideas.

Creative ideas often come in a flash, and long ago I realize that they are much akin to intuition. In fact they’re so similar that being in a creative or intuitive state is almost — if not exactly — the same thing.

From this perspective, we can better understand why creative people report more psychic experiences. … Most people who believe in psychic phenomena are not ignorant or mentally deficient. They just see farther into the depths of the world than other people do.

~ Dean Radin, Entangled Minds

How to Enhance Your Creativity

Can you choose to lower your latent inhibition and thus expand your levels of perception and creativity?

My experience is definitely yes.

The more I do it, the more information I have conscious access to. My intuition is constantly getting more active and reliable, and I get so many creative ideas I can’t hardly keep up with them.

And all it takes is intention and practice.

3 Things You Can Do This Week

1. A super easy and fun way to practice expanding your perception is this:

When you have a free moment, simply ask yourself

“What am I not noticing?”

If you want more direction than that, then use all your senses, inner and outer, to

a. first check your environment

b. then your body

c. then emotions

d. then thoughts

e. then vibrations.

You’ll be amazed at how many things suddenly come into your awareness!

Some will be things that could be obvious to anyone but some will be very subtle things that you may wonder if you’re really even perceiving as opposed to just imagining.

Trust that you are.

2. Repeat #1 as often as you feel called to. :-)

3. Join us for my free “Summer Activation” next week.

An activation is a group Holographic Emergence™ session that’s done with the intention of activating and boosting a particular thing, in this case — ta da — your creativity! (For more about what an activation is, you can see my “Spring Activation” announcement.)

Details about the activation, including the link to register, will be in this week’s newsletter. (Note: The free activation is for newsletter subscribers only. If you’re not a subscriber yet, then you can sign up here!)

Emergence and Expanding Your Perception

Over time I’ll present (as blog posts) a lot more ways for you to practice and exercise your skills of expanded perception. It’s something that comes into play at several levels of the Emergence process, especially:

1) Entering “the state”

2) Engaging with “the field” (aka playing :-) )

3) Noticing what’s different

Right now I’m in the process of developing a free quick-start kit that will guide you through the process of doing an easy Emergence session on your own. It’s going to be great! Stay tuned for an announcement about its availability.

And now: I’d love to hear what happens when you try the exercise(s) above to expand your awareness. Or maybe you have some suggestions of your own? Do let us know!

“Are you ready to jump in and begin the most exciting journey of your life?”

These are the words Angela Artemis uses in the first chapter of her new book The Intuition Principle: How to Attract the Life You Dream Of.

And if your answer is yes, then read on, because I’m going to tell you why I think Angela’s book is a perfect first step on that journey.

Here’s my review of The Intuition Principle.

First, The Intuition Principle is a hugely impressive book.

I’ve grown accustomed to the way Angela writes on her blog, and her book did not disappoint. Some people write fluffy, superficial pieces. Not Angela. Her blog is full of posts that you can sink your teeth into. A few minutes with Angela is like an hour with someone else.

The same goes for her book.

It is substantial.

No wonder she’s so quickly become a best selling author!

(I’ve got so many of Angela’s well-chosen words to choose from — besides an impressive clairvoyant, she’s a talented writer — that I’ll sometimes let her speak for herself. Unless otherwise noted, quotes are from the book.)

The Field of Consciousness

Much of what Angela elaborates on in her book is related to what this blog is about: Connecting with a vast field of information and possibility and learning to apply it toward living a life that’s full of joy.

In Angela’s words:

The source of our intuition is the field of consciousness, or what I refer to as Greater Intelligence. … All that it takes to reconnect to this vast storehouse of knowledge is our intention and desire. It’s always there just waiting for us to invite it to work with us.

This last sentence is much like what I said in my last post about “The Field”: that it’s always there.

It’s up to us to interact with it and to accept its gifts.

This book helps us do that.

The Life You’ve Always Dreamed Of

Here’s why I love this book and why I added it to my list (I’m building a list of favorites for you to refer to): It’s about being integrated with your authentic self.

The Intuition Principle is about getting in touch with who you are authentically by listening to your intuition. It’s not so much a book about developing intuition as it is living an intuitively inspired life. …

It’s about living your best life, feeling joy, and feeling fabulous!

~ Angela chatting with Suzie Cheel about The Intuition Principle

And again, from the book:

The Intuition Principle is the concept that within you exists an innate technology, your intuition, capable of both guiding you to and attracting to you the life and happiness you’ve always dreamed of.

“Guiding you to” and “Attracting to you”.

That means it works both directions.

So this book shows you how to best interact with your life situation and how to draw to you (or create) more satisfying life circumstances.

Intuition as a Means, Not the Main Goal

What I found is that this book actually does guide you into using your intuition but in a different way than I’ve seen in most books on the subject (and I’ve seen/read/used a lot of them)!

I think you’ll find that as you go through it, your intuition will increase easily and naturally as she shows you how to use it to investigate and ultimately discover your authentic self and its ideal relationship with the world.

She takes you on a guided journey toward the meaningful goal of discovering your spirit (and all that implies in practical term), and teaches you to use intuition as your main tool.

It’s a beautiful blend of the two subjects: discovering your authentic self and using your intuition.

So although Angela states that intuition includes psychic ability, this book is primarily about getting to know ourselves more deeply rather than about extending our psychic skills. Even as a professional intuitive, I love it and plan to go back through it more thoroughly as an intensive.

The Importance of Intuition

This is not to under-state the role given to intuition and developing it in this book. (It is, after all, the title!)

I love Angela’s bold statements about it:

You will never live your authenticity until you partner with your intuition.

and further along:

Intuition is the only way to connect to your authentic self and your true calling, your reason for being here at this time.

A Peek Inside the Book

Here are a few notes I jotted down as I read the book. (Note: This isn’t comprehensive nor even necessarily in order. Just some of my favorite things about it that I wanted to mention.)

First, I’ve seen and held the paperback edition. It’s beautiful, and it feels so good! For me, that’s always a good sign and a reliable indicator of a book’s value to me.

But paperback or kindle edition, it’s obviously a gift from the heart.

Angela’s bright spirit shines through right from the beginning as she starts you off with a “pop quiz” about if and how you use your intuition. It’s a fun way to calibrate and compare once you’ve gone through the book so you can see how much progress you’ve made.

And in Angela’s no-nonsense way, she has you making progress from day one.

The bulk of the book is various ways to apply intuition to look within and get to know yourself, or in Angela’s words: “To find your passion, purpose, and authenticity.”

She gets you motivated with a list of the benefits of using your intuition in this way, and talks about how “her life changed dramatically for the better afterward when she started relying on it.”

Exercises are sprinkled throughout the book. By the end of chapter 2 she already has you effectively looking within with questions designed to help you begin to get in touch with your intuition. And these are useful questions — questions I’m sure you want the answers to. (Those are the best kind of questions for prompting intuition.)

She talks about the different ways of receiving information, and how to find out which is your primary mode or vehicle.

She gives you the main tools for developing your intuition. And notice how effective these would all be in getting to know yourself!

1. Meditation

She teaches you here how to do it in a simple and easy way, along with how to integrate it into your life.

2. Guided Meditation

She includes quite a lot of powerful guided meditations, including

  • Meet the “you” that you were meant to be in the life you were meant to live
  • Remember your mission and see your blueprint

If you like guided meditations I highly recommend you purchase her guided meditation system. (I’d do it now — the price is going up any day now.) She’s got the most beautiful voice and the meditations themselves offer so many gifts, e.g. relaxation, insight, expanded awareness, etc. Plus, there are some amazing bonuses!

3. Journaling

This is another major tool, IMHO.

4. Dreams

Easy, practical ways to apply them.

5. Muscle testing and how to do it

Super! I still find this challenging – grrr. I’m going to really use this section. ;-)

6. Meeting and working with your spirit guides

A major topic in itself, and you can even download a recording of one of these exercises.

7. Mind Maps

You draw a map of your purpose and lessons – literally – as she guides you through creating a mind map (& includes related bonus materials that you can download from her site).

Incorporating the Tools

Angela is nothing if not practical. So she then gives you “Twenty-five fun and easy ways to incorporate intuitive exercises into your daily life”.

And then, a super helpful chapter is about how to troubleshoot blocks to intuition. She elaborates on 19 of them (!) and gives you ways to work through them.

If you get this book, you have no excuse not to be benefiting from your intuition on an ongoing basis, and I’m not kidding!

Wrapping Up

At the end she pulls it all together for you.

She discusses this “age of intuition”, and even includes a chapter on how doing this kind of work helps heal the planet.

And she includes a nice glossary of terms, and even an index, gasp! Those are so often missing but an index helps make it a useful reference as the years go by.

As Angela says in closing:

The intuitive personality is an evolved personality.

Do you want to evolve? Then get this book!

Note: Angela is offering you all the free bonus materials whether you get the book or not — and one of them is a free chapter! If you’re still not sure about the book, grab the bonuses and see if they speak to your soul. :-)
