Life is your playground!This really is the most important thing I could possibly say.

But bear with me, as it’s a whole different paradigm than most people live by.

When you know who and what you truly are, in your essence, you will realize that you are not at stake here in this life.

That frees you to simply enjoy it, challenges and all.

I know. I’ve been through some major challenges, the most recent being a major financial loss. It could have been devastating but for this new way of BEing that I picked up along the way.

Presence, or the Open State

It’s about living in Presence, one experience of what I call the Open State.

If you’ve followed Eckhart Tolle, you may have an idea what Presence is.

But I also think that many of us (because I did it in the beginning, too) have a shallow understanding of what Presence actually is.

It’s NOT simply being in the moment in the sense of experiencing what’s in front of you right then, although that’s a helpful way to finally get to it.

It’s not even just about practicing mindfulness – that’s more a way to enjoy and “play” (which I’ll talk more about below).

It’s about going a level deeper than that.

It’s about BEing in that moment fully and to such a degree that you are aware of your immortal nature.

You become aware of the space or silence or stillness that Eckhart refers to.

You become aware of the still field that is omnipresent, existing throughout all things.

The field that you ARE.

The awareness that you ARE.

Once you’ve experienced this, you just know that you are not threatened by anything happening “out there” (more on “out there” later ;-) ). You are not helped by it, nor are you harmed by it.

And then, as you experience it more and more, this knowing becomes a part of who you are as a personality, and you begin to live much more in peace.

In joy, ease, and lightness.

Fear begins to melt away.

The love that you are in essence begins to express, naturally, as compassion for everything and everyone, for you know that it is all YOU.

And you don’t just know or believe it intellectually. You know it through and through.

Then you’ll begin to see that this you, this essence that exists prior to manifestation, is what unfolds or emerges AS as your life, including you as a thinking, acting human being. (This is the level at which we work and play during a Holographic Emergence™ session. This you, and these subtle layers that are the blueprint for what manifests.)

But still, YOU are not affected by it in any way. Not really.

And you know this.

Which frees you to play with it, no matter how your mind might judge it.

You get to fully experience lila, or Divine play. (For you are Divine! :-) )

And you experience your life as one giant playground, full of all kinds of new experiences!

Help Along the Way: Amazing Resources

I’ve come to this over time primarily with the remarkable guidance of 2 enlightened beings.

1) Eckhart Tolle. I can’t recommend his work enough. I’ve read his books several times, each time getting something deeper and richer. I listen to his audios over and over, again hearing or absorbing exactly what’s needed to keep me moving each day toward this state of BEing.

2) John Sherman. His work at River Ganga is extraordinary. Without him, I don’t think I’d have really gotten even what Eckhart offers. His teaching is one-pointed, i.e. Look at Yourself. It’s through this extremely simple practice that I have really grokked who/what I am. I mean really, really got it, to the core. I no longer simply experienced the stillness. It became clear that that is what I AM, and that stillness is ultra-aware. It’s pure consciousness. It’s awareness. It’s me.

Both Eckhart and John illuminate in a new and accessible way what the Eastern Masters have been saying for millennia. I spent quite a long time immersed in Eastern philosophy. The world they so beautifully describe is nothing short of heaven on earth. (Have you ever read the Upanishads? They’re breathtakingly beautiful!) I’ve meditated for decades and meditation is, of course, helpful.

But it wasn’t until I became aware of these two and dove deeply into their teachings that I was able to actually access it; to benefit in a meaningful and profound way, and to really begin to become more consciously this Light that we all are.

A Path, not a Destination

I’m still growing. I don’t consider myself an enlightened master – yet. ;-)

The good news is you don’t have to be at the summit to experience extraordinary benefits.

Little by little we become more and more conscious of who and what we are.

And little by little, we emerge as our true, authentic, essence. And this unfolding is rich and satisfying.

No matter what.

Namasté,

Patti

When I took my first Matrix Energetics seminar back in 2007, it became really clear that the foundation for being able to facilitate transformation was being able to enter what they called “the state”, our subjective experience of accessing the Zero-Point Field.

There was a lot of confusion around that, and at the time, they didn’t go into much detail about it.

The good thing was that just being in such a large group (about 300), with Richard Bartlett as the lead, you somehow got into it by osmosis.

So we actually got there, even with very little specific instruction.

First Experiences

I knew I was in the state mainly because I was able to facilitate change for practice partners during our experiential segments.

My being in the state would also explain why the ceiling in my hotel room kept moving around like a wave that night (and I am not kidding).

I also noticed (although it’s hard to describe) my analytical mind having to clamber its way to the surface when someone asked me a practical question on day 3 of my first seminar. It was a little bit like how you sense your reality solidifying as you wake up from a dream.

But once we all returned to our respective homes and wanted to be able to do it on our own, it became more imperative that we have a clear sense of it.

So what the heck was this state, actually? And how could we get into it on our own?

First Lone Attempts

After returning home, my confidence evaporated. Not completely, but significantly.

To keep the momentum going, I participated in a lot of Matrix Energetics tele-seminars, a few in-person classes, and frequent practice get-togethers, some of them about the state.

We were taught more about how to intensify the state, with a few more suggestions about how to get into the state, but still the instructions were vague and not very clear about what, exactly, we were doing.

And like in the seminars, there was little if anything about what the state actually was, or even how to know if we were “in” it. At home, the sense of it didn’t (always) knock me over the head like it did during the seminar.

So I wasn’t quite as sure I was really there.

And I wasn’t the only one. There continued to be a lot of confusion on the part of just about everyone I knew who was practicing it.

I’ve noticed that nowadays, Richard and his new partner Melissa talk about entering the state as accessing the “field of the heart”. (And even when I learned Matrix Energetics, there was a lot of talk about “dropping down” into the heart.)

But that means different things to different people. And although that may be one way to access a version of it, that still doesn’t fully illuminate what it is or how to consistently “get there”.

Discovery!

Well, as I said, that was 6 years ago, and since then I’ve done a lot of my own investigation, experimentation, and discovery.

The good news is there are a lot of ways to get into the state that work — although some better than others.

There are also a lot of versions of being in the state — again, some more effective than others.

But in retrospect, I can’t help thinking that maybe the reason it wasn’t clarified more is because just sorta-kinda being in it is often good enough.

Really!

So what I’ve found to be true for me is that rather than try to pin it down, it’s best to just play at it.

A lot.

The Open State via an Open Mind

Because there are so many versions of this state, I’ve decided to refer to it here as the Open State, which seems to fit all of its expressions (that I know of, so far ;-) ).

It’s very experiential, with some common threads between people, yet some experiences that are unique. And not just unique to each individual, but often from one occasion to another.

I actually think that it’s beneficial to not go into it with expectations of how to best get there … and what it will be like when you do.

It may be that what works for you today will not work very well tomorrow.

It may be that what works best for you is just okay or ineffective for me, or vice versa.

I’ve noticed that feeling your way into it in the moment, and allowing a communion with it is all you need to do! With practice it becomes more and more easily accessible.

Allow the state of consciousness of doing nothing to become available to you and make it your trusted friend. Consciously spend some time and energy constructing this state in advance, knowing that often nothing happens at just the right time and that everything happens when nothing is being consciously done.

The less you do, the more power you can gain access to. When you are trying to do something or make something happen, you are “doing” with your limited awareness of what can be done. When you are in the tide and flow of events, you are no longer resisting their quantum potential benefits. Now anything is possible and many miraculous things become more likely.

~ Richard Bartlett, The Physics of Miracles

In upcoming articles I’ll be elaborating on these various “versions” of how I’ve come to understand and experience what I now call the Open State.

I’ll do my best to explain it in a way that you can either understand or actually do.

It is a little challenging to talk about because we’re referring to a state of consciousness, and often our language just doesn’t have the words. But that’s okay, because it’s not an explaining or understanding kind of thing.

It’s purely experiential, but I’ll offer a little guidance to light your way.

I’ll also explain how the Open State is beneficial — actually, critical — for facilitating transformation (in the form of Holographic Emergence™, my transformative service based mainly on my Matrix Energetics skills).

And I’ll show how I use it in my everyday life as well as how you can use it for your own “Emergence” into the person and life of your dreams — unencumbered and magnificently expressed!

Until then … Namasté,

Patti

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?
Let Magic Be Your New Normal

This is about the dance between and open mind and the Open State, and how they both enhance each other.
Dance Your Way to an Expanded Reality

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.

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

The Open State is the answer to everything, IMHO.

I think it’s what my life here is all about.

I’m about to launch a series of posts on the Open State, starting next week.

Let me give you an idea of what it’s about so you’ll know if you want to check back in.

The Open State

First, what is the Open State?

Really, it’s BEing who or what we are, in essence. In the series, I’ll talk more about what I mean by this and how you can get there yourself.

Second, what’s the value in it?

In a nutshell, I think the answer is two-fold.

One, it’s a powerful foundation for manifesting. It’s the state that is fundamental to my Holographic Emergence™ practice which is about tweaking how things manifest. In a broader sense, it’s a way to live, or rather to BE, so that life on this plane manifests beautifully as you go.

I mention this first because so many of you are focused on how to manifest consciously. And so am I. But I see this as something we are here to “play” with. And having that attitude of play rather than need comes naturally right along with it.

Secondly, and most importantly, it allows you to enjoy life, no matter what. It’s somewhat akin to moksha, or the spiritual liberation that many of the Eastern masters speak of. So even when our life situation is not to our liking, we have a sense of the bigger picture and do not feel threatened in any way.

I’m an avid “student”** of Eckhart Tolle, and one of his quotes from The Power of Now that recently “appeared” in my life again is this:

The Joy Of Being

To alert you that you have allowed yourself to be taken over by psychological time, you can use a simple criterion. Ask yourself: Is there joy, ease, and lightness in what I am doing? If there isn’t, then time is covering up the present moment, and life is perceived as a burden or a struggle.

He goes on to explain:

If there is no joy, ease, or lightness in what you are doing, it does not necessarily mean that you need to change what you are doing. It may be sufficient to change the how. “How” is always more important than “what.

In other words, are you living in the Open State?

I made the image at the top of this post to use as one of my desktop backgrounds, for when I want a reminder to check in. Feel free to download it (right-click on it and save image as …) and use it if you’d like.

So that’s a quick over-view and if you find it intriguing at all, I hope you’ll come back – and please let your friends know about the series, too!

More Joy, Ease, and Lightness

And speaking of joy, ease, and lightness: It’s spring here in New Mexico and the hummingbirds usually return around now. I just love their spirit and to me they represent such joy and lightness (even though they fight like the dickens sometimes) — the same way I would describe my own sense of BEing when I’m living in the Open State. I like to let them be harbingers of that for me.

So on that light note, I want to share this one-minute video with you. It makes me smile. :-) (And notice how one of them is sitting on my finger. I was thrilled!)

I hope you have a *wonder-ful* Easter.

May it be

a new beginning

where you emerge

as the joy, ease, and lightness

that you are!

** I put “student” in quotes because Tolle also says (again, in The Power of Now):

I am not teaching you. You are consciousness, and you are listening to yourself.

Yes!

Aren’t we amazing?!

Until next time … Lots of blessings,

Patti

emerge into springHappy Spring!

Last year around this time, I did a Spring Activation (a group Holographic Emergence™ session) to help jumpstart our new growth.

Before we did the session, I talked about how I envision Emergence as it relates to our Divine template or to us as a seed of sorts.

To welcome spring, I want to share these ideas with you in this short, live audio which is the introduction to that Activation.

Enjoy!

Magic is the New NormalWOW, I sure enjoyed our recent January Activation!

It went well, and it was enlightening for me to interact with those of you who participated (thank you)!

I got a great question during the Q & A that made something I’d been considering even more apparent.

It’s the importance of developing an open mind.

It’s the very first step, even before learning about the Open State and how to be in it.

We need to get out of our own way so that we can take advantage of what the Open State offers.

(If you were on the call, you heard me announce a February blog series about the Open State, but this made me realize I first want/need to write awhile about an open mind. So here we go!)

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

An Open Mind

I’ve been developing my magical thinking all my life, really. I didn’t think about it that way at the time, but that’s what I was doing. It’s perfectly natural to me.

It’s so natural, that I’m coming to the conclusion that magic is the new normal: Many of my friends live that way, as do many of you.

If the idea of an open mind sounds or feels foreign to you, know that you can develop one deliberately.

Learning – Not!

And it’s not so much about learning something new. It’s more about UN-learning what you think you know.

UN-learning all your limiting beliefs.

Believing – Not!

And it’s not about believing in magic and miracles.

It’s not about believing in anything!

It’s about letting go of beliefs and being willing to open to the possibilities!

Then you’ll be not only more able, but also more motivated to embrace the Open State which is an expanded way of perceiving and experiencing (and the state from which you can easily facilitate magic and miracles).

A Foundation for Emergence

In many ways, an open mind is the primary foundation of Emergence. But to be more accurate, it’s more of a non-foundation, since unlike most foundations, it’s an undefined element.

Rather than being “solid”, it’s malleable and always changeable.

That’s the beauty, the magic, and the fun of it.

In the world where magic is the new normal, you get to make it up as you go. (Stick with me and you’ll “get” what this means. ;-) )

A New Mindset

So a truly open mind allows for a new mindset where your perspective remains fluid.

It enables you to open to the possibilities:

• Of the process

No rules!

• Of the results

No limits!

• Of reality

It may not be what you think it is — in fact, it’s probably not!

Your open mind will be much more open to possibilities than is the (old ;-) ) norm.

So, are you open to becoming more open?

If so, keep an eye on this space.

In upcoming posts I’ll be presenting some new models to play with that will help you open your mind even more than it already is.

Hello, magical creatures!

Here’s a short, easy-to-listen-to audio that sets the stage for several of my upcoming articles.

It’s an excerpt from our most recent live Activation (a group Holographic Emergence™ session).

In essence, it’s about opening to the possibilities of your reality:

If you can’t believe in *magical* possibilities, you’re not as likely to see or manifest them

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

If you look
with innocent perception,
with unconditioned consciousness,
you can see beauty
everywhere.

It’s a natural expression of consciousness.

You
are pure consciousness,
manifesting.

Everything is you, in your various forms.

Emerging.

That is your purpose.
It’s for the consciousness to emerge fully through this form.

~ Eckhart Tolle, The Realization of Being

May you continue to emerge beautifully in 2013.
As the human being that is “you”, and
as all the phenomena that appear in your life.

May you experience the peace and joy intrinsic in the full allowing of that.


The freedom, the power, and yes, the playfulness!

Can you sense what a beautiful gift you are to the world?
I hope so!

All my best to you.
With love,

Patti


 

P.S. These photos represent just a *little* of the beauty I woke up to on New Year’s day, here in the high desert. I wanted to share some of it with you along with a few of my thoughts as I welcomed this beautiful new year. Here’s to a happy & sparkly New Year 2013!

Nov 302012
 

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.

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. But rest assured that no matter what, any reviews on this site reflect my honest evaluation.

Until next time, thanks for reading!

patternEmergence is very much about shifting patterns.

It takes advantage of the fact that whatever you experience in your life originates at much subtler levels of consciousness, in what you can think of as your Divine template.

Your Divine template is a beautiful pattern of light and information; it’s Divine intelligence, which is what you are in essence. It’s from here that the patterns you see manifesting in your life originally spring.

These patterns move from consciousness, to energy, to manifestation.

Non-Optimal Patterns

Ideally, we won’t get in the way of them unfolding exactly as they’re designed, the way a rose blossoms in its full glory, naturally and without effort.

But typically we think or act in ways that cause that perfect unfolding to change course somewhere along the way.

What Emergence does is hold that Divine template in a state of grace, to reactivate it in a sense, so that the template or pattern that is *you* can more easily emerge into what you know as your life.

It’s a beautiful and powerful process.

Tweak Your Pattern with Ease

If you’re currently struggling with trying to change some patterns that are manifesting, and you’re doing it at the level of energy or manifestation, then here’s a way you can go deeper. (And because this is a holistic process, continuing with anything else you’re doing to make effective change is perfectly fine.)

It’s easy and effective, and you’ve got nothing to lose if you give it a try!

It’s quick and painless, but don’t let its simplicity deceive you into thinking that it isn’t worth your time.

Chances are good that you will notice some improvements, and you can use it over and over for various adjustments you want to make.

Pattern-Shifting Process

Do this when you have at least 10 min. of uninterrupted time.

And enjoy the process! Don’t get all serious. Relax! :-)

1. Consider your intention.

This is a big subject but for now we’ll just set the intention that:

Your already-perfect Divine template is easily unfolding in your life.

I say “just” but this is perhaps the most powerful intention of all.

2. Get into “the state” (the Emergence state of consciousness) by accessing the field.

Be easy about it. Often this is effective even when you don’t realize you’re in the state. Allow that possibility.

3. Remind yourself of your intention, softly and gently.

My already-perfect Divine template is easily unfolding in my life.

4. Observe

Do this with all your senses, including your inner or more subtle senses. You can do this with your eyes open or closed, but in the beginning it’s easier to stay in the state when your eyes are closed.

Just notice whatever you notice.

You don’t have to “try”, just allow and note whatever comes to your attention.

5. Express gratitude that it is done.

6. See what’s different.

Do this now, and over the course of the next few hours, days, and even weeks (if you remember).

Open to and acknowledge any differences, not just the ones you might expect, anticipate or want.

If you have questions about how to do this as you’re doing it, then wing it! That’s the beauty of this process. However you see fit to do it is just perfect.

You can repeat this as often as you like. Sometimes, you’ll see such changes you won’t feel a need to. Or sometimes you’ll get the urge to do it again. Either way is fine.

So how did it go? Did you enjoy it? What happened? Do you notice anything different? Please do let me know! (Or if you have any questions, of course!)

Here’s to allowing our most beautiful emergence!

Life as a Doorway to the Field“Death is not the opposite of life. Life has no opposite. The opposite of death is birth. Life is eternal.”

~ Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks

I LOVE this quote. It’s crossed my mind often since first reading it.

And it’s come to mind most recently after losing our sweet lab, Ollie, especially because I had a lot of synchronicities that made me aware — at a deep level — of the same thing.

Life Abounds

It started just a few days after his death.

I was in the back yard and as I looked up I saw 2 mourning doves walking around the bush from his grave. Now, I never see mourning doves back there, even rarely see them at all around here. And that they should come right from his grave while I was there … Well, let’s just say I noticed.

Shortly after that, I was walking over to visit his grave and out hopped a bunny from behind it. It came right over to me, within about 3′, and stopped right at the grave. Again, I took notice.

Even funnier, the next morning I got up and there was the bunny lying in the backyard, all stretched out, right where Ollie used to lay all stretched out!

This was odd enough but this happened several days in a row.

This was getting a little strange, even for me!

Over the next week or two, the quote just kept coming back to mind.

And it seemed that everywhere I went, there was Life.

There were lizards, snakes, birds (ravens, baby flycatchers that hatched and flew the coop, and another mourning dove that flew right in front of me), a big moth that sat right on the post near me on the front porch while I worked, and of course, bunnies galore — to name a few.

Life Goes On

All of this made me sooo aware that Life goes on.

And I don’t mean “life goes on” like your life situation has to continue.

I mean Life just goes on! There is no end to it.

And I did revel in the fact that Ollie was still around. I felt him, not only as his presence, but as Life itself!

I recently did a book review of Dying To Be Me by Anita Moorjani about her near-death experience (NDE). But did you know I had my own NDE? I did … Not as involved as Anita’s, but enough for me to get a taste of what happens when we die. And I can tell you, Life goes on! It’s amazing.

Life = The Field of Magic & Miracles

So you may wonder what this has to do with Emergence.

Well, experiencing the Life that you are — even your life force (which is a little bit of an abstraction of it but still a good stepping stone) — is a doorway to the state of consciousness you enter when you “do” Emergence.

It’s your conscious connection to a powerful field of magic and miracles.

In some ways, the state is impossible to speak of, but there are a lot of pointers that can help lead you to it.

This is one of them. (Note: For some instruction on experiencing your life force and using it to strengthen your immune system or even heal, see remedy #16 in Kiss Your Cold Goodbye Fast With These 20 Natural and Vibrational Remedies.)

And once you’re adept at entering the state … at being … and being life consciously, with awareness — the rest is a piece of cake. ;-)

The truth is: you don’t have a life, you are life, the One Life, the one consciousness that pervades the entire universe and takes temporary form to experience itself as a stone or a blade of grass, as an animal, a person, a star or a galaxy.

Can you sense deep within that you already know that? Can you sense that you already are That?

~ Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks

Thanks for reading, and here’s to you — as Life emerging!

A Way of Being, with Fun on Top!Did you know that the most powerful way to practice Emergence requires no overhead at all?

Granted, the sessions themselves are short and fun, but there’s another even more basic aspect of Emergence I want to be really clear about:

Emergence is not so much an activity.
It’s a way of Being.

And then, on top of that way of Being, there are some ways you can apply quantum principles to help encourage your essence to emerge in a certain way. These are what comprise a session.

Spirited Play

But you can’t facilitate sessions with a sense of desperation or even need. It just doesn’t work that way.

It’s got to be in the spirit of fun, and play. Because that’s what this world of form is. It’s a playground!

I know, I know.

I, too, have had some big challenges that sure don’t feel like fun.

But that’s the trick – to get to that place where even difficult things can be appreciated at least as adventures!

In the memorable words of John Sherman,

“You are not at stake here!”

Your Essence is Immortal and Untouchable

We (as consciousness, awareness, essence) are never affected in any way by what’s occurring in our lives. And that means not only “outward” seeming events and situations, but even what most consider “inner” movements such as thoughts and feelings.

They are not you!

Well, okay … in a way they are because they are your essence emerging and not apart from you, but they are not you as your divine, immortal Being.

It’s helpful to “get” that. Understanding it is a start but ultimately you want to live it.

So once you are actually operating consistently from that state of Being, you’ll find that your life unfolds much more harmoniously than if you’re not.

And even when it doesn’t, you are able to appreciate it for what it is.

It’s a movement of your own consciousness
that you, as your divine self,
are getting to experience.

How amazing and cool is that?!

Fun with Form

And then, just for fun, you can learn to do Emergence “sessions” to intentionally play in the quantum field — that same field of consciousness or awareness that is your essence — to help shift how you are emerging. In other words, to affect the world of form that you experience.

And this blog discusses all of the above. If you read my posts, and apply the periodic exercises or suggestions, you ought to be able to learn a lot just from that.

Thank you!

Patti

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

Art and Science of Transformation

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. ;-)

Comments? Questions? I’d love to hear what you’re  thinking right now!

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

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!

Want to expand your world? Your mind?

Ready to experience life like you’ve never even imagined it?

This is the place. And this is the time.

I’m about to blow your socks off, and you’ll love the freedom of living without them!

And though your feet will be firmly on the ground, your mind will open and expand.

A Tighter Focus

Yet I have to contract so you can expand.

So we can all expand!

If you’ve been following this blog, you know that I write about quite a lot of things, most of them related to energy and consciousness, and mainly because that’s what my interests are, and consequently what my services offer too.

From now on, this blog is going to be more focused – on just one of my interests – gasp!

I’ve been resisting having to choose, but it’s been trying to happen for a long time. Then a wise blogger friend pointed out to me recently (thanks, Angela ♥) that as a reader you probably want to know what the hell my topic is from day to day, right? Like, pick one already!

And so I have. It was a no-brainer. It’s the one that turns me on the most, and which is working its way into all of my services anyway (funny how that happens).

The Field of All Possibilities

Ok, so the field of all possibilities probably doesn’t sound like I’m paring down, does it? LOL! But I am, I promise. ;-)

I’m going to limit myself to writing about what happens in one of my Holographic Emergence™ sessions — and how you can do it too! (Holographic Emergence found its beginnings in my Matrix Energetics training.)

You will learn:

  • Just what a “Consciousness Technology” is
  • How and why it’s so cutting edge
  • What makes it a whole new paradigm
  • 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
  • How it transforms, shifts — and rocks ;-)
  • 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’ll learn:

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

You’ll transform your life, inside and out, and no areas are off-limits. ~ Click to Tweet

And it’s easy!

But the best news of all, is that:

  • Nothing new has to be added to your to-do list!
  • It’s really just an expanded way of being. You’ll see!

It’s about BEing, not doing. ~ Click to Tweet

So BE Lightspirited with me! ~ Click to Tweet

Let’s Get Started!

So you’re going to see my entire blog transform … slowly but surely … to reflect these changes. (And because that’s what naturally happens in a hologram.)

Of course, I’m still offering all of my services (Holographic Emergence, Vedic Astrology or Jyotish, Intuitive Channeling, and Animal Communication) because I love doing them and because you find value in them.

But my blog topic? Contracted … so we can expand.

Are you ready?

What to Do Next

First, make a decision to come back and share in the adventure!

Did you catch a glimpse of your elusive spirit this week? The one that sometimes hides out when you’re looking the other way?

This is the end of Week 1 of the 10 week online course “The Answer is Simple”. And week 1 was precisely about how to recognize that spirit of yours!

(The entire course is offered free by Sonia Choquette, and some of us are working it together here with a discussion at the end of each week. Join us!)

This Week’s Concept

Here are a few notes I jotted down as I watched the first Week 1 video:

• Who you are is not your story, ego, history, accomplishments, family, personality, community, etc.

• You are a spirit. You are unlimited! All those other things have limits, but you don’t. So change your identity. Say I am a divine, glorious, unlimited spirit!

• Spirit has personality. There are different kinds of spirits, e.g. Sonia says she is fiery. Some are calm, soothing, grounded. What kind are you?

• The key is to know that you are divine.

• Recognize and enjoy spirit. It’s beautiful and perfect. It is so powerful it gives you life.

• We’re here to grow. Life is school.

• Understanding your spirit makes life and lessons easier to navigate. It makes ups and downs more pleasurable to engage in. You’re immune.

• Notice Spirit frequency vs. Ego frequency

• Ego is insecure, etc. When you’re in ego frequency, you feel separate and pull away. You’re fearful, judgemental, etc.

• Spirit frequency is always peace, love, etc. You want to connect and participate.

• Practice and concentrate on recognizing your spirit.

• What do you love? What do you enjoy? What leaves you feeling inspired? Notice how your energy opens up.

My Comments

OK, yes, I’m going to do it. I’m going to disagree with Sonia on a few nuances. :-)

1. I think our spirits are a part of us (a more subtle version of our physical bodies), but I don’t think we are our spirits.

I think that our essential nature is even more basic than our spirits.

She says our spirits are all different (i.e. hers is fiery, some are calm, etc.) and as I understand it, she is speaking of something that is manifesting at some level. If it weren’t it wouldn’t have characteristics, even subtle ones. (Then during the practice video, she says that our spirits are all the same spirit, which sounds a little like a contradiction to me. I do agree we are all one, but our spirits exist as subtle energy bodies and are not the same spirit any more than our left thumbs are the same thumb.)

I think that at our core, we are pure consciousness. That might not even be the right word for it, but it’s a beingness that doesn’t have any “qualities” that we can perceive. It doesn’t change at all that I can tell. It’s always the same.

And I said I “think” that, but I’ve come to that idea through experience. It’s not just something I read or heard.

The best I can do to describe what I’m talking about is to refer you to John Sherman’s conversations so you can see for yourself.

2. I’ve been playing with getting the word “unbound” (or something similar) into my tagline. I take all her talk about us being unlimited as an encouraging nudge.

3. Another slight disagreement. I used to agree that life is a school, but now I’m not so sure.

I think we’re here to simply participate and enjoy (I like the Sanskrit word “lila” for this, the divine play) even more than we are here to learn and grow. We automatically grow and evolve just by being.

4. I agree that at our core, we’re immune. I don’t know that I believe our “spirits” are totally immune. Our spirits are still energy patterns (albeit subtle ones) and still subject to impermanence. Our basic selves are not; they are — or it is — immortal.

So, all that said, sometimes I “look at me”, or sometimes to my spirit. It depends on the application.

What do you think about the concepts she talked about?

This Week’s Practice

Here are a few more notes I jotted down when I watched the second Week 1 video:

Breathing brings you into spirit frequency. When in ego, you hold your breath.

  1. Breathe
  2. Share a breath with several different people (or pets). There’s only one spirit. (Here’s where I saw that contradiction I mentioned above.)
  3. Notice how doing this lifts your vibration and opens your heart.
  4. Energize yourself with breath when you’re in ego.

My Experiences this Week

First, I did pay more attention than I would have if I were just doing this on my own, so thanks to all of you who jumped in to do this with me! :-D I do think I got more from it as a result.

I made it a point to revisit the idea that I am not this personality; I am much more essential and basic than that. And more than just revisiting an idea, I actually did more of the “Looking” this week.

Monday I found myself in a total funk. Total. Funk. (On Weds. before Thanksgiving I impulsively decided to take Monday off. Now I know why! I knew at a deeper level than my conscious mind did that I was going to need it!)

I felt really pissy but at some level was still compelled to examine what was going on. I also did some Emergence which included some Channeling about it, and the results of that session were marvelous. Within the next few hours I just kept feeling better and better.

I took some time to do the breathing like Sonia suggested. I did notice that when I was upset in some way, my breathing was shallow … and I was in ego frequency like she said. When I focused on my breathing, and on breathing deeply, I was able to easily get in touch with my spirit as she described it. It felt good.

Your Turn

What do you have to say about the concept? What were your experiences? Can you make any suggestions or have some ideas for others?

Anything goes!

Please feel free to reply to each other, and maybe we can get a discussion going. (If it’s especially substantial, I’ll make a post out of it.)

If you’re not working the course, you can still jump in with your thoughts. And next week you might want to join us!

Also, since this is the first week, I’m playing around with the format of this weekly discussion/report post. Fellow-ettes: Let me know if you want to see something different. ;-)

Thanks for joining in! :-D

And now: On to week 2! See you next Friday!
