In Western society, the rational mind rules.

We’re encouraged to develop and honor it above all else, even to the exclusion of all else.

It’s too bad.

Being purely rational — even predominantly rational — limits us more than we know.

Open Mind & Open State

In my last post, I talked about the importance of having an open mind. And what I mean by this is not just being open to new, rational ideas.

It’s about opening your whole self, your larger “mind”, to the idea that you may not know it all; you may never know it all!

And it’s helpful to open to the possibility that there is more than we can ever know or understand.

What happens then is you allow some other parts of you to operate along with (or sometimes instead of) your rational mind.

It’s a more holistic, aware, intuitive, and in short, expanded way of being. (And so fun!)

This is an especially important foundation to build on if you want to be able to take advantage of the Open State that is critical to Emergence, allowing the magic that is you to unfold into your life.

As I’ve said before, if you believe there’s no such thing as magic, you’re not as likely to experience it.

Entering the Open State is easiest if you can expand your mind, or let go of your thoughts altogether (especially your thoughts of disbelief).

But in the meantime, you don’t have to be perfect.

Just make a start.

Open the door just a little.

An Enlivening Dance

The Open State and an open mind work together (or play together).

It’s like a dance, where each interacts with and enlivens the other.

Expanding and strengthening each is an iterative process.

I know this to be true as I am doing the dance, and have been for a long time!

If you’re willing to do this, you’ll find that rather than build new beliefs, your mind will be fluid and open to whatever shows up in the moment.

Your perceptions will be spontaneous and dynamic. (Much more about what this means and how you can do it too in the upcoming Open State series.)

Beyond Thoughts and Beliefs

During our last Activation, we did a quick and easy process together.

Afterward, I got a question that made the idea of this dance quite apparent.

It was about the questioner’s thoughts, and her beliefs — that rational mind, again! — and how they help or hurt the process.

Audio Q & A (& A & A … ;-) )

I wanted to share the question and answer with you.

After the call, a few more ideas came to me and I’ve added those also. (So those of you on the call and with the recording have not heard all of this yet.)

(For some context it might help you to first listen to the Opening + Emergence audio found in my post Open to the Possibilities and Emerge!)

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!

Ah, the field.

A huge subject but here’s a simple introduction that will give you a sense of what it is.

You’ll also get to experience it.

But why do I care?, you may ask.

Because that’s the place from which you will manifest all kinds of wonderful changes in your life!

In fact, it’s the place from which you know that all is well.

It’s a place of perfect and total well-being.

It’s always there and we’re always connected but the goal is to experience it more consciously because that’s what helps us earth its gifts.

That’s what helps us bring them into manifestation.

What Is The Field?

The field can be described scientifically to some degree. Lynne McTaggart wrote a whole, fascinating book about it called The Field (emphasis mine) :

Human beings and all living things are a coalescence of energy in a field of energy connected to every other thing in the world. This pulsating energy field is the central engine of our being and our consciousness, the alpha and the omega of our existence. … We are attached and engaged, indivisible from our world, and our only fundamental truth is our relationship with it. ‘The field,’ as Einstein once succinctly put it, ‘is the only reality’!!

We’ll get more into it in future articles, but for now your subjective experience of its essence is what we want to focus on.

How to “Get There”

In my experience there are many different ways of consciously accessing the field. They all involve subtleties, and they all result in a subtly different experience of it.

Here’s one of my favorites*:

(It helps in the beginning to do this with your eyes closed.)

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

2. Exhale slowly and as you do so, drop your shoulders.

3. Now as you finish exhaling, immediately drop one more level by moving your attention from your 3rd-eye down to your heart area.

Do you feel the difference? Feel how still and quiet it is? Then you’re “there”. Hold your attention there awhile.

If you can’t tell a difference from your normal state of awareness, then repeat the steps again very slowly. Pay close attention to the subtle goings on “inside”.

Notice that even though you took certain steps, when you’re accessing this state, you’re not actually doing anything.

You’re being.

It’s that simple state of being that we’re after.

Soon we’ll learn a few exercises to do while you’re there to strengthen your ability to hold the state.

But for now, I’m curious to know what you think of all of this, whether you have any questions, and how you did with the exercise. Please do let me know in the comments!

* Credit for this simple but powerful set of steps goes to William, a Matrix Energetics Master Practitioner.

IMHO, practicing a Consciousness Technology –  such as this site is about — is the *ultimate* exercise in self-care. However, a talented writer and friend of mine just started a hot new blog, and has her 3rd post in a series today with potent pointers from wise women about their favorite self-care rituals. You can find the first one here (where I’m one of the featured ladies :-) ), and be sure to read them all because there are some great giveaways!

I’m also featured in the current edition of Truly Alive, an impressive local holistic magazine which is recently getting its online footing. Read my article Confused? Stuck? Vedic Astrology to the Rescue! — and there’s a special freebie there, too!

Did you know that you — yes, YOU — can actually bring magic and miracles into your life?

You can.

And I’m here to show you how.

So let’s get going!

The Basic Principle

First, everything physical is consciousness manifest.

We can think of it as a continuum with the field of pure potential at one end, and the time/space of physical manifestation at the other.

You can work effectively using that continuum:

consciousness -> energy -> manifestation

A small change at the subtle levels of consciousness and/or energy can create profound shifts in our lives.

(If you’ve ever read my “About” page, you’ll recognize those statements.)

Consciousness Technologies

The most powerful way to make these changes deliberately is so new and cutting-edge that it doesn’t even have a well-known name yet, but it’s slowly becoming known as Consciousness Technology.

Consciousness Technologies are frameworks or concepts that give us the ability to deliberately work (or play) at the most subtle levels of consciousness to effect positive changes for ourselves or others.

Some include techniques that can be helpful, but keep in mind that techniques are not required.

The Field

The main element of a Consciousness Technology is — you guessed it — consciousness.

Of course, consciousness is everywhere all the time, but the aspect of it we are concerned with is being in a particular state of consciousness.

You can also think about this as accessing a field of consciousness, or what we’ll call “the field”.

Ultimately, Consciousness Technology is all about that field and your interacting with it. Engaging and even playing with it.

The biggest trick of it and the most critical element — maybe even the only element — is that you be in that state.

Because from there is where you facilitate change.

From Subtle to Solid

Now, that all sounds very ethereal but it’s amazingly practical.

I may be an intuitive but I’m an engineer at heart and wouldn’t even mess with it if I couldn’t apply it.

It can prompt changes at any level (physical, mental, emotional, spiritual); in your past, present, or future; in other peoples’ lives; or just about anything else you can think of. No kidding.

I’ve used it to find lost jewelry (my most amazing story of all — you’ll hear it some day), to fix a DVD player, to heal my shoulder, to get my dog(s) through physical challenges (one issue miraculously disappeared overnight), etc.

There’s really no end to it and I use it all the time.

Beneficial Side-Effects

I also find that because it’s so much about accessing certain states of consciousness, playing regularly with Consciousness Technology actually raises your consciousness as a side effect. Nice! And this can only help the world at large, as a side-effect of the side-effect. ;-)

It also prompts new and expansive views of what life and reality is all about. This aspect of it is pretty damn wonderful — and in way too many ways to go into right now. Let’s just say it’s invigorating and freeing and can rock your world from the inside out. :-D

Multiple Systems

There are a few different types of Consciousness Technologies out there.

Over time I’ll introduce you to all the various forms I’ve found and played with.

The ones I use the most are Matrix Energetics (which I trained extensively in) and Holographic Emergence™, which I’ve since developed (or which has been “emerging” through me).

Holographic Emergence™ incorporates ideas from several of the Consciousness Technologies and come to think of it, from everything I’ve learned and know about consciousness and all of life. As a result, it continues to evolve and improve, which is kind of exciting!

Coming Soon: How to Access The Field

In an upcoming post, you’ll learn the most essential skill you’ll need to begin to do a form of Consciousness Technology yourself almost immediately: accessing “the field”.
Update: Here it is! What “The Field” Is – and Why You Care

If you want to make sure not to miss upcoming posts, you can always subscribe to posts here. (It’s free and you can choose to get them via email or RSS feed).

So, did I give you a decent idea of what a Consciousness Technology is? Or do you have more questions now than you started with? I’d love to hear in the comments.

Thank you, and namasté.

Don’t you just love it when a chronic physical issue just goes away?

Me too.

So today I want to share a little *magic* with you that can increase the chances of that happening in your life. Auto-magically.

I hurt my shoulder a few months ago. My chiropractor says it’s my rotator cuff, and that I need to baby it so it can heal. So I’ve been doing that … But I don’t see much improvement. If anything, I keep re-injuring it.

The other day, I decided it’s time I work a little magic with it. That can mean a lot of things to me (as you may know), but in this case I mean that I’m going to practice some Holographic Emergence with it. (And I just finished an astonishing session. Very fun.)

A Little Magic Does the Job

I have every confidence doing this will make a big difference.

Years back I developed bothersome TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint disorder; quite the mouthful). It was painful and had become chronic. After I’d had it for years it was recommended to me that I have surgery. Yikes. No way. I decided to get to work.

I used a combination of Matrix Energetics and Reiki on myself. Amazingly, I didn’t even have to do too many sessions (I did regular Reiki for awhile, maybe about 10 treatments, and about 3 or 4 Matrix sessions, all over about a 4 month period) before I simply forgot about it and later realized that the TMJ was gone. Completely gone! This was a few years ago and it’s never returned.

And so, it’s foolish of me not to do a similar thing with my shoulder.

Synchronicity as Confirmation

But here’s the cool thing. The morning I decided to do this–and to perhaps blog about the process–I was walking Ollie (our sweet old lab) and decided to listen to some Deepak Chopra on my MP3 player.

OMG! Talk about synchronicity! Everything he said was such an affirmation of what I’ve experienced ever since beginning my practice of Matrix Energetics. And to me it said “Do it!” It also said to share it.

It’s one thing to be familiar with the ideas, but when you live them, that’s when the real magic happens.

Some Magical Ideas from Deepak Chopra

So, without further ado, I want to share some of Deepak’s statements with you. They’re from his 5 CD audio set “Magical Mind, Magical Body“, and I’m only 1/2 hr. into it but I can already recommend it. (And I love that he sounds so excited as he talks about these things. It makes for an involved listening experience.)

• Health is not just the absence of a disease, it’s a joyfulness that should be inside us all the time. It’s a state of positive well-being, which is not only physical but emotional and ultimately even psychological and spiritual.

[Note: You can use that simple idea with great effect. Every time you feel frumpy, repeat the idea to yourself that you are well and express well-being and you'll feel an instant shift.]

The body is not a frozen sculpture, it’s a river of energy and information. … You can not step into the same flesh and bones twice.

• You replace 98% of all the items of your body in less than one year.

• There is a deeper reality to the body and that deeper reality is what we want to see because from that deeper reality comes both the mind and the body. Both come from that deeper level of existence.

• A physicist would say: “Our atoms are particles that are moving at lightening speeds around huge empty spaces, they emerge from something which is just a field of pure potentiality, just a field of pure energy, and from that field these particles emerge. They’re fluctuations of energy and information. They emerge from a void. They rebound, collide, and then disintegrate into the void.”

• We have a thinking body. And you can’t imprison the mind in the brain. That’s an old notion, that the mind is confined to the brain. The mind is in every cell of our body.

You can’t even confine the mind to your physical body because it extends beyond your physical body into the whole universe. We are part of a thinking conscious universe that is basically a non-local field of information. We can call the universe a non-local field of information and energy with which this local expression (which we call the physical body) is exchanging energy and information.

• It’s estimated that the average person thinks about 60,000 thoughts a day … and 95% of the thoughts you have today are the ones that you had yesterday. So you keep creating the same patterns that give rise to the same physical expression of the body. If you go to a deeper level, witness the whole process, become conscious of it, then you’d realize that in fact there are choices here.

What we do is we take that chaos of energy soup, we ingest it through our 5 senses, and then we convert that into a physical reality in our own awareness, in our own consciousness. And we do it unconsciously most of the time that results in certain interpretations that are part of a cultural indoctrination.

There’s one part of you that doesn’t change. If you find that part of you that doesn’t change then you’ll be able to cause transformations in that part of you that does change.

[Note: Deepak uses the word "you" but then goes on to complicate it. You can discover that part of you that doesn't change easily and simply. Just visit  John Sherman's website and take advantage of what he so generously offers.]

• Now if I said the mind is omniscient it would sound sort of mystical. That it knows everything, it’s omnipotent, it’s omnipresent, it would sound almost like I’m talking in mystical terms. But in fact, in scientific terms, that’s an accurate statement.

Now once we recognize that — even to have the insight — is to begin to cause transformations in your body. A person’s body is nothing but an expression of all the ideas they have about it.

• If there’s a fluctuation that changes at deeper levels of energy and information then it causes, spontaneously without having to do anything, you don’t have to brainwash yourself about this. You just have to have the insight. And the insight itself causes the changes.

Patterns of Light and Information

So, these are some of the ideas I use — that have become a part of me — as I work with my shoulder. Or more accurately, this pattern of light and information that I perceive as a shoulder. ;-)

Like Deepak says, recognizing this reality helps create a transformation all by itself. It’s what gives us a lot more power than we think we have otherwise.

And therein lies your magic.

So this is the world I get to play in every day.

Want to join me? Or have you already?
