Emergency Tips To Center And Ground Our Energies

njhby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
in the last post about taking physical and spiritual self care to higher levels, I mentioned that the energy field of the recent Cancer New Moon triggered in many people a need to develop the deepest levels of self care and evaluation of their needs. As one way of increasing our personal energy level, I suggested the rejuvenating process of cleansing our liver and colon system. Such a cleanse helps us transform the lower feelings we carry around over years in our livers energetic memory.
But not only is it an important step of increasing self love and self care to transform our body’s memory and change the impact of our past, we should also have some techniques at hand to center and ground our energies, in case we feel a bit lost in the chaotic energies of the collective out on the street.

Dear Ones, a personal message, New Beginnings will be closed from June 1st till September 4th! In this time I will be posting my articles rather sporadically, expecting to pick up the daily service after that period! If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a Facebook group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!!

One thing that is helpful to practice, is a payer that is designed to transform lower vibrations. You can choose any prayer, from any religion or tradition, important is only, that you feel safe and strong in the energy field that you create with it. Personally I enjoy working with the violet flame of transformation, it allows me to keep the fires burning all day long ;-).
If you train yourself to shift energies in your surrounding in order to navigate your day, you probably will not come to the point of feeling overwhelmed by the outside influences. If it should anyway happen, you find a list of simple helpful emergency steps below, to center and ground your energies again.

Violet Flame Prayer
I AM a being of violet fire
I AM the purity God desires.

imagesHere are more simple techniques how to get your pieces back together, if you feel lost in the energies of the collective:
1.) When ever you find yourself in the middle of a crowd of people, with no feeling for where your body starts or where it ends, if you lack the ability to identify your feelings as separated from the collective emotional body, or you find your mind engaged in conversations that are alien to the ways you are usually thinking – your conscious breathing is what can quickly separate you!!!
Our breath allows us the feeling of being “The One”, within the “Oneness”.  As the veil between us all is crumbling more and more, and we are extending into recognizing ourselves again, it’s our breath that will carry  us home. So put your hands on your body. You can embrace yourself or you put one hand on the belly and one on the chest. Give your arms some pressure, so you can really feel your physical body with every breath you take. Breath with an open mouth – deep into the belly, make sure you feel your feet on the ground, increase the pressure on your body if needed and repeat in your mind: “With every breath I take, I am bringing my full awareness into my physical body”.

2.) Another super effective practical and always available tool to gain control over your energy body, is “humming”. Take some deep breath and start humming one sound over and over again. Try not to make it a melody, just a sound. It is not for the others, only for your recognition of your body – as sound. Try not to think about what the people might think! There is nothing embarrassing about it! It is easily done and nobody will care. You can be as gentle and calm with it as you want, indeed the more internal the humming, the more intense the energy will flow.
If your crowd is a business meeting or you are at a public speech you are giving, try and make it to the next toilet!! Lock yourself in a cubicle and hum! Be patient and kind! Take your time and give yourself the luxury of internal life music:-). For sure it has taken you longer to get yourself into this state, than you are aware of, so talk kindly with yourself (in your mind) while waiting for the irritation to pass.

3.) If your crowd is a friendly one and you feel free to seek the help of a neighbor, ask somebody for a hug! Be very clear in the communication about your current need. Explain that you need to be held very tide and that you need to breath in their arms, until you feel your senses all coming back into your body. Make sure you are well understood and that there is no sexual tension involved (if there is any second agenda in the mind of your helper – this energy can have an even more irritating effect on you, in a moment of vulnerability and need). Choose wisely!!.
When you are in their embrace, make sure your feet are standing strait to each other and fully touch the ground. Make sure your body is standing strait and your breath can flow freely until the feet (don’t allow your bud to stick out like a tail!! the energy can not flow that way!). If necessary, ask your hug partner to put a hand firm against your lower back. If you feel pressure in this part of your body, you will automatically start breathing deeper. Keep breathing deeply – if possible with a sound on the out breath – until you can feel yourself fully arriving in the body.14.) In case you get lost in the middle of an outdoor concert, a big festival or anywhere else in nature, look around and scan your surrounding for hand size stones or bigger rocks. Rocks are a very tense manifestations of mother earth, which gives them the power to ground us. Take some hand size stones and hold them. Make sure your feet are both on the ground and your legs are strait. Breath deeply and concentrate on the weight in your hands. After some minutes you will feel the smoothing, grounding and centering effect they have.
If you can sit down, do so! Take two rocks of the size of your feet and step on them. At the same time put a big rock in your lap and allow yourself to feel its weight. Now concentrate on the rocks under your feet, start moving your feet a very little bit and feel the different parts on the surface of the rock. This brings your awareness to the ground and therefor your energy into the earth. The weight in your lap will work with you on this! To intensify the effect of this exercise, you can also combine your mind with your breath and think on every out-breath: I trust myself, I let go, I am sinking in.

5.) All of the above mentioned techniques are much more effective, if you take your shoes of. The rougher the underground, the better! If you have the choice between soft grass and little, spiky rocks – choose the rocks! The very minimal pain will remind your brain that you have a physical body, and set your energy in motion to call all your senses back into body awareness. To make the impact more powerful, remind yourself that it is you challenging yourself! The feeling of “loosing yourself” very often triggers the idea of being a victim of the situation. By reminding yourself of your co-creator role, you delete immediately again the energetic impact of your thoughts, feelings and expressions of victim-hood,  from your karmic records!!

Dear Ones, be kind to yourself and top up on self-love and self care when ever needed these days! The collective has gone into a big wave of chaotic shock right now and is in need of many safe anchors, people who hold space for the calm and safe transition of all of us into the Golden Age of Aquarius!! Be one of them!!
Love and Blessings ;-)!

Chaotic Collective Shifts – 5 Ways That Quickly Ground Us In Body Awareness

oby Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
in this amazing moment in human evolution, we can clearly feel the beginning of the gathering of the new tribes on the planet. In daily more place in the world the collective awakening process is recognized by the masses, and events like the recent Super New Moon are celebrated in many ways. There are parties, ceremonies, rituals, moon dances, women’s circles, men’s groups, collective meditations and much more. Activities that can lead to the unfolding of beautiful relationships, intense energetic connections, and for some to emotional entanglements and a lack of clarity about their personal energy field.

A personal message to all my facebook friends!! FB is limiting the distribution of my posts daily more. If you resonate with my articles and are used to find my work  shared in a group, rather sign up on my newsletter here to make sure you get the information!!! Over time I might not be able to put in the FB time, if it does not lead to what it is about – SPREADING THE WORD ;-)!

On a daily base, I have the chance to meet incredibly talented and unbelievably magical beautiful people from all over the world, many of them Indigo and Crystal Children, who often report a feeling of getting “lost in the crowd”, when interacting in groups of people. Many seam unable to hold space for their own energy field when the collective energies get to strong and pushing. A feeling that is triggered by a disconnection of the emotional body and the physical body or the energetic body and the physical body. At the same time there are daily more people re-connect with the higher frequencies of the universe these days, and as result become more sensitive to collective energy impacts in general.

Also the bigger issue for Crystal Children is that they are born with an increased inner clarity of our collective oneness, on the energetic level. And Indigo Children are emotionally highly sensitive to the collective feelings, as they are the keeper of the emotional energy field for the Golden Age of Humanity. That makes it harder to navigate their own energy in big groups of people! Crystal Children have a special relationship to space and to respecting equality. This creates the challenge, no to get to irritated when confronted with bully behavior or peoples ignorance for the collectives needs. When weekend in their spirit, it takes them out of their center and make them loose their power to others.
aHere are some simple techniques how to get your pieces back together, when lost in the energies of the collective:

Getting your “Pieces Back Together” when Lost in Challenging Energies

a1by Edith Boyer-Telmer

Dear Friends,
for this amazing moment of human evolution, spirit guided me to live in a small, touristic country side town called San Marcos La Laguna at Lago Atitlan in Guatemala. In this beautiful little space in the highlands of Guatemala, the most amazing mix of traveler, runaways and spiritual seeker are passing by for a little dose of the special magic, life is providing here. Travelers and seeker that are often coming from the newly arising tribal and festival movements – appearing in big groups, engaged in intense interaction with each other. There are parties, ceremonies, rituals, full moon dances, collective meditation, consumerism, sex, drug and rock ‘n roll. Activities that often lead to emotional entanglements and intensively mixing energies – if people are aware or unaware of it.
On a daily base, I have the chance to meet incredible talented, unbelievable magical, beautiful people from all over the world, many of them Indigo and Crystal Children, who get “lost in the crowd” – unable to hold space for their own energy field. A feeling, triggered by the disconnection of the emotional body and the physical body or the energetic body and the physical body. Now the issue is, that Crystal Children are born with a total inner clarity of our collective Oneness on the energetic level. And Indigo Children are emotionally highly sensitive to the collective, as they are the keeper of the emotional energy field for the Golden Age of Humanity. That makes it harder to navigate their own energy in big groups of people! Crystal Children have a special relationship to space and to respect between each other. This creates the challenge, no to get to irritated when confronted with bully behavior or peoples ignorance to the collectives needs. When weekend in their spirit, this can takes them out of their center and make them loose their power to others.
At the same time are more people re-connect with the deep frequency translation of the universe these days. Thousands of people, tap into the emotional body of this Oneness feeling and experience amazing physical translations. Sometimes translations are experienced as “getting lost”.hipHere are some simple techniques how to get your pieces back together, when lost in the energies of the collective:

1.) When ever you find yourself in the middle of a crowd of people, with no feeling for where your body starts or where it ends, if you lack the ability to identify your feelings as separated from the collective emotional body, or you find your mind engaged in conversations that are alien to the ways you are usually thinking – your breath is what identifies you as separately existing!!!
Our breath allows us the feeling of being “The One”, within the “Oneness”.  As the veil between us all is crumbling more and more, and we are extending into recognizing ourselves again, it’s our breath that will carry  us home. So put your hands on your body. You can embrace yourself or you put one hand on the belly and one on the chest. Give your arms some pressure, so you can really feel your physical body with every breath you take. Breath with an open mouth – deep into the belly, make sure you feel your feet on the ground, increase the pressure on your body if needed and repeat in you mind: “With every breath I take, I am bringing my full awareness into my physical body”

2.) A super effective, practical and always available tool to gain control over your energy body, is “humming”. Take some deep breath and start humming one sound over and over again. Try not to make it a melody, just a sound. It is not for the others, only for your recognition of your body – as sound. Try not to think about what the people might think! There is nothing embarrassing about it! It is easily done and  nobody will care. You can be as gentle and calm with it as you want, indeed the more internal the humming, the more intense the energy will flow.

9 Animal Species That Use Psychoactive Substances In The Wild

1524815_185511901649386_324707819_nDear Friends,
from day to day now, we are tapping deeper into the awareness of our shared reality with the Animal Kingdom. More and more people receive messages by the other world, transported by animal spirits. Reading this article I can’t help but ask myself if this facts might not be helpful for the human race, when we harmonize our energy field with the Animal Kingdom.
Many of the below mentioned animals are well known helper for us, in indigenous traditions identified as Power animals. I like to think, that the Dolphin in it’s  “trance-like state” is able to tap into the energetic field of humanity to charge us with the amazing qualities their lives represent to us. Same for the Jaguars – who are royal animals to many cultures, the Horse – part of Native American inheritance, the Reindeer the same 
for the Nordic countries and Pics  , part of cultural believes worldwide.
So couldn’t it be possible that animals in altered states of awareness also use the same highways of information than humans do and therefor are channeling their characteristics, love and support to us, when consuming psychoactive substances!?? What Do you think? Anybody who can share such an experience?

Wishing you loving and nurturing connections with the animal world!!
Edith

2401829514by Gonzo Nieto
For millennia, our ancestors have enjoyed, and even regarded as sacred, a variety of mind-altering substances. Cultural artifacts, visionary artwork and rituals in many indigenous cultures and past civilizations point to this fact. As Ethan Nadelmann remarked in a recent TED talk, “Our desire to alter our consciousness may be as fundamental as our desires for food, companionship, and sex.”

While Homo sapien consumption for consciousness-expanding purposes is well-documented throughout anthropology and history, ample evidence suggests we are not the only creatures who seek mind-altering plants and substances in their environment.
Indeed, plenty of our animal friends enjoy mind-altering substances: Some eat fermented fruits, psychoactive mushrooms, and opium poppies. Others rub themselves with crushed ants or angry millipedes.
The initial attraction to these substances might not be just to get high, but for nutritional or protective purposes. For example, fermenting fruits might be attractive to certain species because the process signifies the fruit is at its highest caloric value, and is also going to rot soon. In other cases, naturally occurring intoxicants might serve some curative function or contain nutrients that are otherwise scarce in the environment.
But, there’s compelling evidence to suggest that altering one’s state of mind for the simple purposes of experiencing that altered state is a natural drive common to many inhabitants of the animal kingdom. See for yourself.

1. Lemurs and capuchin monkeys get high off of millipedes.

The idea that some animals get high off other animals is an intriguing one, and lemurs and capuchin monkeys seem to be doing just this with poisonous millipedes. The millipedes store toxic chemicals, including cyanide, which they release in defense when provoked. The primates pick up and agitate millipedes and then rub them all over their bodies, coating themselves in the defensive secretions — here’s a BBC documentary clip on this. As mentioned in the video, the primary reason for this seem to be protection against a variety of parasites, but the monkeys and lemurs also seem to enjoy a thoroughly blissful intoxication as a result. The monkeys, being more social animals, have been seen passing a millipede around, reminiscent of a group of people passing around a joint.

images (1)2. Dolphins enjoy the psychoactive effects of poisonous pufferfish.

Similar to the lemurs and monkeys above, dolphins have been observed hanging out in groups of four to seven, passing around an angry pufferfish. The pufferfish releases an extremely potent poison called tetrodotoxin which is more deadly than nerve gas or the venom of the black widow spider, and thus is one of the most toxic compounds known to man. Evolutionary biologist Dr. Christie Wilcox is skeptical of the theory that dolphins are intentionally doing this for the purpose of intoxication and pleasure, but there is some compelling evidence to the contrary. For example, the BBC documentary Spy in the Pod showed dolphins passing around a pufferfish and then floating near the surface of the water, apparently in a “trance-like state.”

3. Many species of birds do what is called “anting.”

A seemingly odd behavior, ravens, myna birds, jays, magpies, and other birds sometimes either rub themselves with ants or get intimate with anthills to coat themselves in ants (see a jay do it here). This is called anting, and its purpose remains unclear.
An article published in the journal of the American Ornithologist’s Union in 1974 reviewed the possible explanations for anting. One theory is that the birds are coating themselves with the ant’s defensive chemical secretions, thus applying a protective coating much like when we apply insect repellent.
Another possibility is that the secretions serve to soothe the bird’s body during molting season. Others point to the curious movement sometimes observed during anting (described by one ecologist as “a curious dance that involved flopping around on the grass with its wings outstretched and its beak open”) as proof of an intoxicated state, suggesting that anting is pleasurable for the birds.
Perhaps the answer is a combination of these theories. Similar to how humans use cannabis, anting may at times serve a protective or curative purpose, while at other times be done mainly for the enjoyment of the altered state it brings about.

4. Many animals seek out fermented fruits in the wild.

It has been widely reported that elephants get themselves drunk from the marula tree’s fermented fruit. Anecdotal reports of these stumbling elephants go back over a century, and the phenomenon was portrayed in the film Animals are Beautiful People by James Uys (Uys also made The Gods Must Be Crazy). The idea is that the fallen fruit ferments either on the ground before being eaten, or in the elephant’s digestive system, yielding one drunk pachyderm.
As fun as it is to think about inebriated elephants, this theory has been debunked by an article published in the Physiological and Biochemical Zoology journal in 2006, and it’s been suggested that the clips shown in the above video were staged by artificially sedating the elephants. For starters, elephants don’t eat the rotten fruit from the ground, instead preferring to ram the tree trunk to shake loose the ripe fruit, even when there’s fruit on the ground available. Another hypothesis, which suggests that the fruit ferments in the digestive system, is also out of the question; the fruits are not in the digestive system long enough for that to happen, and the sugars needed for fermentation are metabolized by the elephant before they can be converted to alcohol by yeast. And, in order to get drunk an elephant would need to eat 1,400 fully fermented marula fruits — an unlikely feat. Despite its improbability, the myth, and convincing videos of seemingly drunk elephants, persist.

images (2)However, there have been confirmed reports of other animals that regularly consume fermented fruit. The pen-tailed treeshrew, native to Thailand and Malaysia, is known to regularly snack on the nectar of the bertam palm tree, sharing this indulgence with the slow loris and several other mammals native to that area, according to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science in 2008. The palm’s flower bud houses a species of yeast that ferments the nectar, bringing it to a beer-like alcohol content of up to 3.8%. It is estimated that, in one night, the treeshrew can consume the equivalent of nine alcoholic beverages. However, they show no overt signs of intoxication because their bodies use more efficient ways of breaking down alcohol than we do, preventing the accumulation of alcohol necessary for getting drunk. Similarly, bats regularly encounter and consume fermented fruits in the wild. Like the treeshrew, they show no signs of intoxication. When scientists gave bats an alcohol solution and made them fly an obstacle course, they performed no worse than their sober counterparts.

Monkeys also have a taste for alcohol — not only do they seek out fermented fruits, but they also like to steal alcoholic drinks from tourists. And their taste for alcohol has allowed for some pretty interesting research on their drinking habits. Vervet monkeys that were given access to alcohol in a social setting show some striking parallels to the drinking patterns of humans.
The monkeys could be grouped into social drinkers, which prefer sweetened drinks and only drink in the company of others; regular drinkers, which prefer their drinks straight, make good leaders, and are socially dominant; binge drinkers, which are aggressive and can drink themselves to death within months if given unrestricted access to alcohol; and abstainers. What’s more, not only the types of drinkers similar to humans, but the proportions of each of these behavior patterns in the monkeys studied reflects those found in human populations. These findings raise the possibility that our patterns of drug consumption are more fundamental aspects of our animal nature than we might think.

wacky-horse-570x3675. Horses seek out locoweed for its intoxicating effects.

Locoweed refers to any plant that produces the chemical swainsonine. It is thought that horses are initially attracted to these plants because they remain green longer than other plants once winter comes around. However, they begin to seek it out for its intoxicating effects, increasing their use over time. Farmers do their best to eliminate locoweed from their properties, as its frequent consumption is damaging to the animal’s health. A study published in the Journal of Animal Science in 2003 found that horses that ate the weed for two weeks developed significant weight loss and signs of depression. Swainsonine interferes with a metabolic enzyme, resulting in the buildup of the simple sugar mannose in neural cells. If severe, this buildup can lead to heart problems, reproductive difficulties, and neurological damage to the horses.

6. Jaguars eat the ayahuasca vine.

According to this Discovery article, humans aren’t the only ones that use Banisteriopsis caapi (one of the two plants used to make ayahuasca) as a psychoactive. This Amazonian jungle vine contains several compounds called beta-carbolines that potentiate the DMT in the ayahuasca brew by inhibiting bodily enzymes that would otherwise be responsible for breaking down the DMT. It turns out that jaguars also seek out the leaves of this jungle vine.
Higher doses of harmala alkaloids often result in vomiting and diarrhea characteristic of ayahuasca, so one possibility is that they consume the vine to purge the intestinal tract of possible parasites; a study of the Amazonian Piaroa tribe published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs suggests that eating the leaves grants the jaguar heightened sensory perception, helping them hunt. However, the jaguars are also known to roll around in ecstasy after consuming the vine, suggesting to some that its use is primarily for pleasure. See it for yourself here.

images7. Reindeer eat the psychoactive Amanita muscaria mushrooms.

These red-and-white psychedelic mushrooms, native to temperate and boreal regions in the Northern Hemisphere and thought to be the sacrament referred to as Soma in one of Hinduism’s foundational texts, are also a favorite snack of reindeer. As Gordon Wasson relates in his book Soma: Divine Mushroom of Immortality, reindeer are reported to prance about after eating the fungi — which are commonly referred to as “fly agaric” — apparently reveling in their intoxicated state. Reindeer are also an integral part of the history of Amanita use by indigenous peoples of Northern Europe and Siberia. As Reset.me recently reported, a 2009 BBC video explains how the Sami people indigenous to the Arctic Circle have long used fly agaric mushrooms in their visionary rituals. It is theorized that the connection between reindeer, Sami and fly agaric mushrooms is the basis for the legend of Santa’s flying reindeer.

Not only did these people herd reindeer, the animal being their main source of food and clothing, but they also got high with a little help from their reindeer friends. The effects of Amanita muscaria are characterized by a certain unpredictability, as their ingestion can bring about a range of thoroughly unpleasant side-effects and physical symptoms. In time, it was discovered that muscimol, the active compound of the mushrooms, is not processed by the body but is instead flushed out through urination while the more toxic compounds responsible for the body load are broken down. This led to the practice in some places of drinking the psychoactive urine of the shaman who had eaten, and thus purified, the mushroom. Some shamans even drank the urine of reindeer that had eaten the mushrooms. It turns out that the reindeer, intelligent in their own right, also realized that they could get high from the urine of a human that had consumed the mushroom, leading to what Cracked humorously referred to as “The Circle of Piss.”

8. Wallabies ravage opium poppy fields.

Tasmania is a leading producer of opium poppies for the pharmaceutical industry, supplying the morphine necessary for the production of painkillers. There’s only one problem: wallabies love the poppies. They’ll raid a field, gorge themselves on poppies, and crush the plantations in the process. As reported by BBC in 2009, the issue of stoned wallabies was even discussed at a parliamentary hearing on the security of opium crops in Tasmania, with the country’s attorney general stating that wallabies were “entering poppy fields, getting high as a kite, and going around in circles.”

download9. Pigs dig up truffles containing cannabinoids.

Black truffles, a gourmet delicacy for us humans, are also a sought-after snack for pigs. These mushrooms grow exclusively below ground and are identified by pigs by their aroma, said to be reminiscent of wet earth, dried fruit, and cacao.  A recent article in the journal Phytochemistry revealed that the black truffle (Tuber melanosporum) contains the cannabinoid anandamide, a compound structurally related to THC that is also found endogenously in the human body and is a key component of the body’s endocannabinoid system. Anandamide derives its name from the Sanskrit word ananda, meaning “bliss.” Researchers suggest that the anandamide in black truffles might be “an ancient attractant to truffle eaters that are well-equipped with with endocannabinoid receptors,” indirectly suggesting that humans might be drawn to truffles for the same reason.

Mohammad’s Awakening – an inspiration for all truth seeker!!

Image21Dear Freinds,
another beautiful article has found its way to me and I feel especially glad, that it is from an Islamic writer. Please open your mind and follow his steps of explanation – especially as the writer has written so purely from the heart and without any religious context. In the past few month – Mohamed the Ascended Master has often found his way to me – as his power is of ‘Guidance through belief’!! Trust in the voice from within and let it guide you into a new phase of human evolution !!
Love and Faith

This is an article from the website ServantoftheLight
39:42 It is Allah Who takes their consciousness upon death, and of the living during their sleep. Allah withholds it for those upon whom Allah has passed the decree of death, and restores the others until an appointed time. Herein, behold, are Signs for people who think.

A verse of clarity for those who think, as the messenger Muhammad used reason and deep thought, so as a Muslim you must emulate this action. Muhammad meditated for many years in the evenings, to caves in Jabal-an-Nur (mountain of light), he had a favourite cave called `Ghar-i-Hira’ or the cave of research.
Muhammad, like Isa, and Buddha, practiced meditation, slowing his mind and clearing his thoughts, over time his ability to slow his mind grow more controlled until one night he achieved 4 to 5 cycles per second, a key cycle of consciousness, triggering something that shattered the very fabric of his reality, this is no small achievement, as in a natural circumstance you will enter REM sleep in such a mental state, so it is the ability to overcome the mechanism of the mind and remain conscious while your mind is at rest. A state of consciousness Buddha called enlightenment, the state of consciousness this essay is about.

Deeply affected, he returned home and related to his wife what had happened, believing he may have gone mad, he expressed his fears; a basic desert existence was all he knew until that night, an experience so profound and in direct contrast to any experience he had even conceived of, it transformed his outlook, his understanding and his connection with reality. The human mind is a physical organ connecting your consciousness to the many senses (we possess 21 sense in all it has been calculated), you use to experience this universe, you are in truth an electromagnetic plasma being, held within a physical body within this reality, this is the first thing to understand.

The universe is held within a manifold, this manifold is a virtual ocean of energy so dense it boggles the mind, each cubic centimeter holding more energy than all the visible universe combined, of a truly infinite reality, this is the second thing to be understood.
The human brain holds your consciousness within this reality, but has the power to set it free; that freedom is possible under certain conditions.
So how is the conscious mind released from this reality; how is the veil of this material reality, our physical universe removed?
The brain has a small solitary gland (the only unpaired gland in the brain) called the pineal gland, it sits well-protected in the deep recesses of the brain, bathed in cerebrospinal fluid by the ventricles (the fluid filled cavities of the brain that feed the pineal and remove the waste), it produces a few things but two main things, melatonin and 5-methoxytryptamine (Dimethyltryptamine (DMT)), it produces DMT (an endogenous (produced inside the organism) psychedelic) naturally every night when your mind hits 4 to 5 cycles per second and you enter REM sleep; it produces DMT when you die; and it produces DMT when through meditation your mind slows to 4 to 5 cycles, being vibrations of energy. The vibration of your mind through meditation, harmonize both hemispheres of your brain with your electromagnetic energy.
DMT releases your consciousness, Allah (the single consciousness, held within the overarching dichotomy) through this mechanism takes your emotional energy from this reality and then returns it each night.
four-trypamine-compounds1It may seem a strange idea, your consciousness being take into the manifold each night and then returned, but when people have been injected with DMT they cannot retain the memory of the experience within their electromagnetic plasma field, it cannot be remembered. DMT is classed as an hallucinogenic drug, as it takes your consciousness from this physical reality, the body is rendered immobile, the memory is shut down, at least in the conscious bringing to mind, it interacts with the subconscious mind, the dormant, yet far, far, more powerful aspect of your sentience.
If DMT is smoked, it is possible to retain some of the memory, they all describe the same reality, without connection or previous knowledge of any other persons experience having been reported, it is always the same reality they describe, this is not the method you should use for this experience, as you would be in the wrong emotional state and hence cannot delve deeply into this reality, being under the influence of a drug and not through the conscious control of your own mind.
The perfect method (I would call it the most natural method)to experience DMT reality is through meditation, which evokes pineal DMT release (trigger or key to unlocking the conscious mind) through electromagnetic vibrations; achieved by training your mind to vibrate at a low frequency, which can be helped through outside stimulation, such as pulsed sounds or light, which allows your mind to remove the veil of this reality, so you can experience consciously the information transfer of the manifold, with total recall. The practices of the past through tribal rituals that accessed the power of the pineal, utilised rhythmic sounds and actions to lower their frequencies, the Sufi dhikr practice could generate a similar effect. The problem with external drug DMT experience is the noise of the mind, they enter, their mind excited and alive with chatter, the high frequency mind is not ideal, so contaminates the information interaction with random and disconnected thought.
indexThe pineal gland is referred by some as the third eye, by others as the spirit gland; this gland is light sensitive and actually within reptiles has a lens, cornea, and retina, the pineal gland allows you to communicate with the manifold, this information transfer is through the photon, as it is in a basic form within the physical universe, it is to an extreme form within manifold accessed through the pineal gland, so intense is the photon exchange your very being emanates photons, so you glow very slightly.
All the physical reality is a form of energy, whether time, light, mass or space, another way to think of energy would be ordered knowledge, each aspect of energy is ordered, and works in an ordered way, all energy is in continuous exchange with its active time environment and the active manifold (also reference as the energetic vacuum, the ‘A‘ field, Etc.). The photon is also a form of energy and has both spatial and time energy components, whenever a mass absorbs an observable photon, the mass it extended in three dimensional space and forced to continue through time, during the transition virtual photons are absorbed and emitted generating an internal restructuring resulting from the observable photon interaction.
hqdefaultThis understanding can be expressed another way, there is out folded light and infolded light, the infolded light is an extraordinary vacuum engine that generates and drives the apparently physical, which is invisibly hidden below the surface, while the out folded light transmits the information of the physical.
It being communication at superluminal (faster than the speed of light) speed, using electromagnetic waves inside this infolded, ‘inner’, electrodynamics. Mass is mostly empty space interacting with electromagnetic potentials, fields and waves; so mass is in fact a superhighway for direct superluminal communication using longitudinal electromagnetic waves. The entire universe is a matrix of information, unified, conscious and constantly being reinvented. The pineal gland sees the infolded light, it observes the vision of the manifold and receives the information these virtual photons transmit.
You may think why does matter that could never absorb a photon, say buried deep within the Earth have existence if the above understanding is correct, well all atomic electrons at any energy level continually receive and emit virtual photons with the manifold, meaning they are permanently connected and interacting with the manifold.
No matter how precise the technological and scientific developments, energy must materialize from the manifold before it can be observed, and so be physical; until Allah (the universe, the higher self, the divine presence in action) materializes it, it does not for all intents and purposes exist, yet we have the power within us to witness beyond this physical realm.
01bMohammad took a journey, deep into the underlying reality, a virtual reality of infinite knowledge, on an object called Burraque, the meaning coming from the Arabic root Barque which translates as lightening, so Burraque means intense energy, or energy light, the journey Mohammad took within the information exchange of the manifold was a level of understanding beyond which no human knowledge, residing in this world, has ever delved, or could ever explore deeper, he traveled to the limits of our emotional energy.
Upon his return from this virtual underlying reality of his conscious being, Mohammad found that the door chain of his house was still moving, and the water from which he had made his ablution was still dripping, as if he had been gone only a very short time. The effects of linear time are a manifestation of the manifold as reality is reinvented instant by instant around once every 9 billionths of a second, but within the manifold the illusion of linear time does not exist, so time can be perceived shorter or, longer than time within our physical universe.
Mohammad was asked if he had seen Allah, to which he replied, ‘No’. What is clear is he attained the deepest and utmost knowledge of the true nature of existence, ever conceived or comprehended, and vouchsafed to any man.
Now the preceding explanation has given you a little insight into the functions within yourself, and how every human being has the innate ability to connect as Muhammad, and as Muhammad, once you have consciously connected with this reality, it becomes easier and easier to reconnect, explore deeper and experience fuller the wonder of this arcane reality.
And that’s just what Muhammad did, he continued to explore and experience this wondrous and fascinating deeper reality, underpinning this superficial physical reality; a physical reality we believe to be real, which is in fact a dream in comparison to the manifold that gives this reality it birth, we know little of the manifold, but one thing is for sure, the adventure is just beginning.
If you consider it this way, if the manifold holds all the energy of our visible universe within each and every single cubic centimetre of its truly infinite proportions, and you then consider the scale of our universe in comparison to that superior reality, our physical universe becomes insignificant.
To give you a perspective of just how vast this physical universe is, if you portioned out all the stars man has observed and extrapolated so far, it would mean each person on Earth would hold roughly, Thirty eight trillion, four hundred and sixty one billion, five hundred and thirty eight million, four hundred and sixty one thousand, stars each.
To give you a perspective of the scale of that number, if a grain of sand 1mm³ represented each of the stars allotted to each person, each person would have over 84,000 tonnes of sand. To give you a perspective of this number that’s enough sand to cover an acre of ground nine and a half metres high. Now in comparison to the scale of the manifold this physical universe is insignificant, but consider this, the manifold in comparison to the scale of Allah’s creations is comparably insignificant.

Sex And Intimacy

19_sSex And Intimacy

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.
Frank Herbert

Let’s Talk About Sex

Sex and Intimacy are perhaps two of the most difficult subjects to talk about. But why is that? Well our collective fear, guilt and shame which have been running through our societies for centuries have a lot to answer for. If we were raised in Christian countries we have been given the message that sex is somehow dirty and wrong, that we can’t have sex before we get married and that once married we can only have sex with that person for the rest of our lives.

So we learn to suppress our desires..better not tell the wife that the new 25 year old beautiful neighbour with pert breasts is in any way attractive…God forbid that we own this desire for fear of shame and a level of retribution that only wives know how to deliver. So we pretend. We pretend that we are satisfied with our once weekly, if we are lucky, or once monthly, sexual interaction with our wife, that lacks everything that we long for. We want to be cradled in Love, in total acceptance, we want to see the desire in their eyes and feel it in their bodies. We want to join, to become one, to move our energies as one being and to connect with something far greater than ourselves in the union that Love Making is. But we convince ourselves that a few minutes of genital pleasure and a spasm of ejaculatory release is somehow more meaningful than the deepest bliss of being that we can experience when we make Love when we learn to drop away from our programming.

mindful-sex-intimacy-connectionFear

So it seems clear to me that we live in a climate of fear. Fear of being judged, fear of getting it wrong, fear of not being enough, fear of rejection, fear of breaking away from our old patterns of being and relating, fear of loss of attachment, and ultimately fear of not being Loved. This octopus of fear has men well and truly caught up in its tentacles, constricted, heart broken and emotionally castrated men limp through life yearning for it to be radically different.

Some men head off into the field of affairs where the hopes that the grass is greener fuels their secret rendezvous. Others turn to the ladies of the night so they can just once in a while feel the touch of a woman’s body, others sit by the dimmed light of their lap tops watching pneumatically breasted women pretend they are enjoying being f*cked by a series of men. And the result of this??? Yet more fear, guilt and shame around our sexuality.

What is the solution?

It seems clear to me that there needs to be a move towards freedom. A freedom to be heard in our desires, a freedom to be seen as sexual, a freedom to be met with acceptance, a freedom to connect intimately with the people that we love, a freedom to be liberated beyond the shackles of conformity and a freedom to live a life infused with Joy, Love, and Ease.

Yes! This is what I want!

So you’ve made the first step. You’ve decided that something needs to be different. You know you want to be free of guilt, fear and shame around your sexuality…so what next? This is a journey that needs to be travelled, and with all journeys when we have a guide it’s much easier to find our way. This is the role of the Dakini or Sacred Sexual Priestess. She will guide you through your feelings, out of your mind and into your body. She will teach you how to Love beyond any Love you have felt before and she will teach you how to let go of All that doesn’t serve you while holding you within a container of total Love and Acceptance. This is the way of the Dakini…this is the Path of Tantra.

A-WpdlGCAAEapwgA note on male ejaculation

I am asked by many men about ejaculation and so here are my thoughts on it. A man’s weakest link sexually is that he tends to need to want to release stress through sex: actualised by an addiction to ejaculation and rituals of comfort, born from teenage years of masturbation. What results is that a man will treat his woman as a receptacle for his tension, his frustration, his burden and his semen. He wants his woman to take on everything and to leave him empty. How do you think this leaves the woman feeling?

Initially in my Tantra session I will teach you how to not to ejaculate, but instead how to hold onto your energy, to move it skilfully through the body. To use it to open up your heart, to heal, to bring in more consciousness and presence and ultimately to open to the Divine and to create a path of complete freedom for yourself.

Once you have mastered this I will teach you that a woman wants to be filled, but filled by Love, energy and passion, not tension and frustration. She wants to support her man in feeling utter release – sheer bounded consciousness, free of fear and stress which is the quality of a man’s true nature. That with practice a man can learn to empty himself of his entire sense of separateness, consciously. In loving embrace with her he learns to confront his fears, his need for comfort and control, and he lets go and surrenders into Love – her Love. Then with time he realises that the Love he feels in her heart is also the true nature of his heart and so he realises that this Love that he so longs for can actually be attained with or without a woman in his arms. As this Love is an expression of his true nature.
