WHAT IS CONSCIOUSNESS?

We are each a spark of the creator, 
Spiritual Awareness made Manifest 
We are all connected to each other and
to the souls of animals and Mother Earth

We are designed to live in our hearts with our minds as observer

Input from our body adds to our field of experience

Our shared reality creates our surroundings

We are limitless with no boundaries or separation from each other

We are born in flesh to enrich our sense awareness; energy made corporeal

We are here to enjoy, use and express through a body in order to aid in expansion of our individual and collective consciousness

Vision of Human Existence

I Am the Great ‘I AM’

Spirit creates so that it may know itself. The body, a virtual suit for experiencing spirit, is aware of future occurrences and creates and sends feedback to spirit through electro   vibrations. Spirit can’t taste chocolate, see a sunset or feel the thrill of  emotions or adrenaline when you fall in love or go skydiving without this three dimensional perception of reality.

We may have life contracts at birth, choosing to experience certain things and always we are creating and recreating our reality.  It may be that we, all various selves, are living many simultaneous lifetimes at once since ‘time’ is a function of our 5 senses and a 3-D reality. We can draw on all of these experiences right now in the present.

Other levels of psychic activity and knowledge are available only when you disconnect your experiences from neuronal structure allowing you to discover other probable selves and realities.

Nerve pattern activity causes an illusion of a present, which is our point of power where  we can change past and future neuronally.

Future events are your selection of probable events from your potential ones causing them  to be perceived at present.

All future events exist simultaneously but many occurrences speed by too quickly for neuronal structure, jumping nerve endings too quickly to experience. Again, perception of a future event is chosen based on law of attraction of our beliefs.

Our ‘beliefs’ cause us to attract and permit entry of certain events through our physical perception or neuronal wiring and synapses- it then seems to become the past. These future events remain as a part of your potentiality, and do not become a part of your present perception. The past is still occurring as the ‘drag’ leaps synapses but is not physically recorded.

You only experience portions with your corporeal structure, yet the structure records them. The cells retain their memory though you do not perceive it. Thoughts and emotions are energy. In the moment, impressions pass by the senses and are recorded in the consciousness experientially. The energy then passes and the next event enters.

When an impression triggers a belief or stored energy pattern, however, it causes a change in energy flow through the mind/heart. This focus causes the energy to become constricted, circling around itself. Holding the energy requires additional energy, all of which becomes a big energy blockage.

The mind tries to release an energy blockage by focusing and thinking about the event. If that doesn’t work, the heart tries to release the energy emotionally. Any blockage that remains unreleased in the present becomes stored in incredible detail in the heart. A future trigger will surface at some point in the future, and there will be another opportunity for release. These blockages are very unhealthy emotionally, mentally and physically.

 .

Our Spirit, our Over-Soul or Accumulative Soul, a spark of the Great ‘I AM’ Has incarnated many lifetimes and is comprised of our Subconscious Mind and our Conscious Mind.     

Subconscious or Involuntary Mind

Our subconscious mind takes care of our internal body functions by monitoring the division and replication of cells and the few millions of things each cell does per second to function. This would include: respiration, adjusting body temperatures, processing nutrients, eliminating wastes and knowing what every other cell is doing  simultaneously. Note: extracted cells in a Petri dish react and identify with those in body, i.e., reacting to a cut to your finger or emotions and stress.  In today’s society, we don’t connect with this physical reality as well as we could.

We treat our body as separate from us. Our mind, we think of it as belonging to ‘us’. Our body has its own intelligence and is always seeking balance and healing.

The subconscious or involuntary mind is connected to the Limbic System, which cues us with an emotional tag to deeply buried beliefs, experiential  as well as underlying beliefs and concepts from childhood  that have become hardwired into our brains.  Emotion, our first language before we developed thought, is the key that can unlock our subconscious and help us to shift beliefs that are sabotaging our visions.  If we can check in with our emotions, they will cue us as to the vibrational level of our subconscious thoughts at that particular moment.

An average person has sixty to seventy thousand thoughts each day, 80% of which we had the day before.  Most of us are being subconsciously guided approximately 95% of the time by thoughts we are not even aware are playing in our minds (old tapes).   Consciously, we are only focusing on  5% of the thoughts that cross our neurons through synapses.

The Conscious Mind
is inner Spiritual awareness focused or turned outward toward world events.

It’s job is to perceive

The Conscious mind is the Observer for Spirit. It observes what we have created individually and collectively. The Conscious Mind does not die with the body as do the ego and physical brain.  The Ego and brain are a part of the Conscious Mind and are used by the mind as its tools for processing and vision. Spirit relies on the Brain and Rational mind (Ego) to provide a 3 dimensional focus through our 5 senses, translating channeled sensual information into physical reality.

The Conscious Mind is a conduit of intuition from Spirit, receiving insights and intuition from the Subconscious mind and from Spirit.  The mind also projects thoughts and reoccurring thoughts (beliefs) outward, creating the living picture of you. Conscious as well as unconscious thoughts alter your physical reality. Your focus changes throughout life.

Difficulties arise when the Conscious Mind becomes rigid. In order to create joyous expressions in flesh, you must clear your Conscious  Mind to receive  deeper spiritual awareness and knowledge of the great ‘I AM’. The Conscious Mind examines underlying beliefs from childhood and outside beliefs in order to provide an opening  to its true creativeness.          

The Conscious Mind is Home to the Rational Mind or Ego-

The Body is Home to the Physical Brain

  Ego provides a 3-D focus, defining ‘time’ and a physical reality.  It channels information from the Conscious Mind in order to view its reality in the physical world

Spirit looks outward into the world through the Conscious Mind or inner psyche much as your eye looks outward from the body.  While they are both a tool of vision, just as the eye cannot see itself, neither can the Conscious Mind. While a surgeon can locate the brain, nowhere is he able to find the exact location of the ‘mind’.  The brain is the physical counter part of the mind.  It connects the Soul and intellect to the body, making the nonphysical a physical reality.  The nerve pattern activity causes illusions of a present.

The mind depends on the brain. A healthy brain has some 200 billion neurons. The brain requires up to 20% of the body’s energy despite being only 2% of the human body by weight.  Consequently, any imbalances or drugs that affect the brain, including prescribed as well as illegal, will most certainly create problems for the mind and deaden the creativity and freedom of our spirit selves.

Because your brain is exposed to thousands of stimuli, including but not limited to auditory, visual, and neuro-sensory, it can’t possibly process all of this information as it comes in.  A lot of the tagging and archiving of memories occur at night while you’re sleeping since the brain never sleeps.  Memory tests show that only four or five hours of sleep will affect this process and ultimately your memory recall.

The brain has two complete separate hemispheres, the left and right.  In fact, within scientific circles, there is a new map of the brain incorporating the top and bottom of the brain in the “theory of cognitive modes”.  These hemispheres do not work one part at a time; they are interactive and together in concert are capable of communicating with each other through the Corpus Callosum and its three hundred million axonal fibers.  Within our mind we have a potential for higher mathematics, complex physics, art and amazing richness of thoughts, feelings and sensations.

Our traditional educational methods, curriculum and exam focus ensures that we emphasize development of the linear left brain.    If you look closely, you will see that oftentimes  the children that exhibit spectrums of ADD, Bipolar, Dyslexia and Autism; each highly intelligent in their own way; have trouble filtering out all of the extraneous information that is not required to strictly identify them with a  3-D existence.  These individuals are more of the universe than the world and struggle to fit in to either.

Below is the popular left brain right brain model.  In general, the left brain thinks and cares about different things and processes information totally differently from the right brain.

Left Brain

  • Private
  • Yang
  • Male Energy
  • Positive pole
  • Analytical Linear

Right Brain

  • Holistic, unity & idealistic
  • Ying
  • Feminine Energy
  • Negative Pole
  • Feelings & emotions
  • See beyond temporal life

Yang

The left brain takes the sensory input of the right brain and processes that information in a linear fashion into past and future perceptions.  It picks out details, and details about those details, categorizes them and associates them to what we’ve learned in our past and projects them into our future.  The left brain thinks in language.  It is the constant chatter that connects us from our internal world to our external world.  It is the intelligence that organizes things we need to do now or tomorrow.  It perceives a different reality, that of “I am” as separate from each other and being in a physically dense body.

Yang/Ying

Ying

The right brain is all about the present moment, here and now.  It thinks in pictures and learns through kinesthetic awareness through the movement of our bodies. It receives information in the form of energy which streams in through all of our various sensory systems, exploding into an enormous collage of what this present moment looks, sounds, tastes, smells and feels like.  It senses energy and being a part of the larger whole or connected to Spirit.

Mammals have always relied on inbred instinct.  It became necessary for man, in order to survive, to develop rational thinking.  This rational thinking in partnership with the brain defines our lives through our senses and keeps us in physical reality.  Free will became a function of Ego and guilt became a measure of control for it, creating beliefs.

Beliefs are the ‘filters’ through which the Conscious Mind looks outward through Ego.  Oftentimes, Ego can block awareness, interpret, ignore or stuff input that it receives from the Conscious Mind.  For the most part, the Conscious Mind, Spirit, has taken a back seat to Ego in today’s Society.  It was meant for us to be in a three dimensional physicality with a remembrance of our true identity but our egos developed stronger than our intuition over time.

Just as your mind cannot be located within your brain, neither can thoughts.  Thoughts, moving at the speed of light, are energy and reside in the virtual domain of true potentiality.  Action potential, Neurotransmitters and contraction are all a result of thought.

Beliefs are Ego’s clouds on your Conscious Mind.  Beliefs are thoughts that you just keep thinking until they become a hardwired path in your brain. This is essentially what we refer to as emotional baggage that we drag along with us into every relationship, job and situation.  These beliefs form your self image and define your concepts of what is and isn’t possible for you.  You only choose what you feel in accordance with and utilize psychological characteristics that you believe you possess chosen from a variety of selves.

Ego dies with the body and fights to maintain a world in which it believes it has control.  Originally it was intended that we follow our heart and the Ego would be a servant to our heart for the purpose of survival.  Ego records occurrences, imaginary and real, and warns us with an emotion of fear or contraction as to any perceived danger physically and/or psychologically. This perceived danger real or imagined, includes things that the Ego has not yet experienced as well as real danger which it came to know through experience or even through our DNA evolutionally.  While it is  our reptilian ally, Ego also keeps us stuck in ways that may not serve us.  Ego tends to stick with what it “knows”, even if what it knows is painful psychologically, rather than risking the unknown.

Unlike Spirit, Ego promotes beliefs in separateness and aloneness versus connection and oneness. It perceives your thoughts as your reality.  Beliefs are intellectual and have emotional tags that tie good and bad circumstances together.  Beliefs are screening and directing agents which define your concepts of what is or isn’t possible for you.  Most often you will unconsciously follow your subconscious expectations without any realization that you are doing so.  In order to discover what your underlying beliefs are,  follow your emotions and they will lead you there.

If you are experiencing feelings of fear, worry, anxiety, jealousy or pride, these lower vibrational emotions- contraction- are telling you that you are out of sync with your true self or higher self -expansion.  This is your opportunity, in the moment, to choose.  Do you wish to continue feeling resistance and out of resonance or will you change your thoughts to be more in accordance with your higher self?

It requires a regular practice to change your resistance by changing your thoughts.  To accomplish this, you first have to be conscious enough to check in with yourself regularly to observe what you are feeling.  If you are feeling discord, most likely the originating emotion fed into your thought process, your thoughts ran with it, which in turn fed your feelings, creating a vicious thought and emotional loop.  Once you become conscious of this feedback loop, you have a choice.  You can continue your emotional-thought feedback loop or you can stop that train, become centered and redirect your thoughts and emotions to a higher vibration.

Sometimes, remembering joyous memories, better times or simply focusing on feelings of gratefulness can take you to a high vibrational reality.  The only access you really have to these thought-emotional loops is through your mind and being able to control your thoughts.  Emotions are just a biological cocktail that your body whips up serving you with feelings of peace and joy or alternatively, fear and adrenaline in preparation to a reptilian response to fight or flight.

An emotion that is unfed by reoccurring negative thoughts will only last ninety seconds and then it passes.  Again, it takes practice but being able to stop the train and think clearly can not only save your life and preserve your health but it can save you years of wear and tear emotionally in situations of depression and grief.  Once you are able to redirect your thought to a more positive believable thought, with practice you can begin to unwire from your old beliefs to create more positive ones.  This will help you to heal the egoic thoughts that distress you and help you create positively with the law of attraction.

Ego arranges like-kind information into schemas (like a file drawer or folder) which are tied together with an emotional tag for retrieval.  All beliefs and memories that are connected  to a person or circumstance, may be in that same folder and emotion is the glue that keeps those thoughts stuck together.

As in most relationships, there may be thoughts and feelings of love and hate connected to the same person or event.  For example, you may remember someone you loved and with that memory comes a later memory of betrayal, hurt and sadness.  When you begin a new relationship without examining your story, a new person may trigger a past memory.   Your Ego registers pain and contraction causing you to want to react in a certain pattern, a pattern which can ultimately push that new person away.  Many times betrayal and abandonment patterns begin early as children, oftentimes originating with divorcing parents.  Unexamined stories can become your reality again and again.

In order to change a belief that no longer serves you, since you can’t lie to yourself or fake out your conscious mind, it is easier to look back in your past for a time that more relates to the new belief you wish to create.  Don’t focus on what is wrong or lack, search for moments that were right and focus intently on those, making them your new reality.  Your brain, your mind’s servant and partner, doesn’t know the difference between real and imaginary causing the same areas to light up (fire) in either circumstance.  Force a desirable opposite emotional response to go with your new visualization and a negative one to attach to your underlying negative belief.

Following a new positive direction with an action of intention will begin hardwiring a new neuronal pathway; a powerful tool of creation and recreation. If you want to demonstrate a new belief of abundance, splurge in a small way or donate money to a worthy cause.  Then forget about it.  Change happens in the present and you do not need to know how something will manifest.

The Human Body generates and sends feedback 
creating spiritual awareness through electro vibrations

Spirit wants to know itself experientially.  The human body is the virtual suit for experiencing spirit in physicality.  If you are interested in learning how to skydive, you could read about it in a book but until you actually experience it by jumping out of a plane, you don’t really know how to skydive.   Our 3-D body is a miraculous instrument of divine proportions. It is completely loving, forgiving, and nonjudgmental; always seeking balance and healing.  It senses and is aware of past as well as future occurrences and has its own intelligence.

We see the world as separate objects, subatomically, a complete illusion.  There are only vibrations of energy and relationships.  All objects in our physical universe are made up of swirling molecules made up of atoms (packets of waves of energy), made up of protons, electrons, neutrons; all particles, none of which are solid. Consciousness is more real then our physical reality yet our physical reality seems more real. Scientists aren’t sure what particles are made of but each one is interconnected.  There must be something that explains why particles have mass, why things hold together, why you and I are able to exist.  That something is the Higgs boson known as the God particle.

Everything, including our thoughts and emotions are energy, vibrating at their own particular level.  Creating thoughts, holding onto thoughts, recalling thoughts, generating emotions, controlling emotions and disciplining powerful inner drives, all require a tremendous expenditure of energy.

If you watch carefully, you’ll see that you have a phenomenal amount of energy available to you that you can feel coursing through you in waves, gushing up from deep inside to restore, replenish and recharge you.  It doesn’t come from food or sleep.  The source is Spirit when you are inspired and vibrating at a higher vibration. Conversely, if you are feeling drained, perhaps you are depressed and you just can’t find the motivation to put one foot in front of the other.  You may want to eat and sleep all the time but it won’t give you sustainable energy.  The only reason you feel this way is because you have blocked your spiritual source of energy by closing your heart and mind to protect yourself.  Ironically, closing your heart doesn’t protect you from anything.  It simply closes off your energy.

There are centers called Chakras that channel your life force or Chi.  This energy never gets old or tired nor does it need food.  The only thing you really need to know is that opening your heart allows energy in and closing it (when you are triggered by Ego) restricts it, becoming a habit.  The way to stay open is simply to never close.

Staying open becomes a choice through meditation, spiritual awareness and willful efforts.  Emotional blockages can affect your health but you can heal by relaxing and opening. Most of the time, we are simply following old programs, oftentimes from childhood, which are based upon past experiences, hurts and underlying beliefs. It takes practice but all you really need to do is check in with yourself several times a day and ask the question, “am I aligned with love or fear?”  If you find yourself in a contracted state, you can then stop that train, center and redirect.

This energy is interpreted by the five human senses of the human brain in partnership with the ego. Each of us vibrates at a different level as does everything in creation.

Different food items that we eat vibrate differently. For example, meat is of a lower vibration than vegetables. Broccoli is the highest vibrating vegetable and orchids are the highest vibrating flower.  The vibration frequency of a rock is denser than that of a tree.  Energy travels at the speed of light and our senses cannot process or perceive at that speed.  Our perception is based on the frequency of vibration.

A movie is nothing but still shots moving faster than our potential perception so we see it as continuous movement.   It takes a snail three seconds to register light.  If you left the room and returned within three seconds, the snail would be unable to perceive your absence.  I believe that Spirit, not only our own higher consciousness, but that of our loved ones who have passed from physical reality, is right here in front of us but we are incapable of perceiving these higher vibrations of Spirit with our five human senses, thus Spiritual awareness is not a tangible part of our reality.  The exception is those who have a more developed psychic ability or sixth sense.

Our body is one hundred thousand billion cells, divided and replicated yet different for each body part.  The cell does a few million things per second in order to function.  It creates proteins, adjusts membrane permeability, processes nutrients and each cells knows what every other cell is doing.

Our Cells resonate with our thoughts.  If we are thinking and feeling creativity, love and peaceful thoughts, we are generating coherent electromagnetic fields that broadcast to the rest of the body.  Dogs and, on some level, most people can pick up on the energy that we broadcast.  Anger, fear and stress are the main interrupters of resonance which disrupts the synchronization of cells causing the rhythms to go awry.  The body behaves in a fragmented manner, the immune system becomes suppressed and dis-ease is caused in the body.

I hope you have found this helpful and insightful.  Please know that I realize that everyone has their own spiritual beliefs; beliefs that resonate with them in their own hearts.  Thanks for allowing me to share mine.  You may have an interest in reading “If I am You, Who is she”,  a deeply personal story of my own life long spiritual growth.
