Consciousness and the Vibrations and Resonances in Life


Time and space have been filled with lots of challenges for humans lately. In the last month or so we have had hurricanes, shootings and fires within US boundaries. Along with all the other unrest happening politically here and around the world. Lots of turmoil, unrest, tragedy. Followed by help and support from others and lack of care from some.

In any society, where one individual has the power to annihilate those around him I feel we must question how easy we allow it to be for that to happen. Is there a difference between a president with an attitude and bombs and a shooter armed with an automatic weapon and agenda?

I think most individuals do the best they can. They are just coming from an unaware space or from their wounded self and a different mindset. Their sense of biases directs their actions. But those are important to all of us as we may come face to face with them up close or from a distance. Every person has the ability to affect all of us directly or indirectly.

I look to see how I can be helpful. How is being one in the many of One make a difference? I can send money and supplies on one level. I can vote and march and sign petitions. I let myself be counted.

As Consciousness and part of the whole and spectrum that Consciousness is I can help in other ways. By being me in that awareness. And it is the same for you.

Our emotions can anchor us into certain patterns of feelings and people in stress release particular vibrational tones. We have been feeling this. Even the Earth has been reflecting this.

With the hurricanes and Las Vegas shooting, inside and outside of group I have been noticing the strong emotional imprint of energies around us as vibrations and resonances in particular.

What do we do in the face of actions that take lives? There are times when you can say nothing. When we just have to stop and acknowledge loss, the seemingly senselessness of an action.

We have to get from behind our podiums of justification and the sway of agenda. the seductiveness of connection and belonging to any group that says they are the only group worth being, and being in service to some particular god or deity or family.  That is all a matter of interpretation. Every serial killer has a reason of righteousness, Every government may have a reason of righteousness behind acts of terror and war committed. We have to pay attention to the biases active.

Again, how do I help in all of this and not add to the emotions running high in every direction? In group we noticed all those energies showed up as a vibrational medium filled with tones.

You know how you hear certain tones and they are like dirges, deep and so loud? That was Las Vegas. I could see waves of vibrations holding in the space. Our awareness was that panic, pandemonium and shock needed release. I witnessed them as present and having the ability to transform themselves into twinkle dust and to be swept away on the wind.

How to help those hurting? How to help the rage of the shooter anchored in the violence? We found ourselves spontaneously offering counter balancing tones. Like when a group will sing out notes, someone starting and then the rest add their input and soon there is this amazing melodic sound resonating and moving through and taking you places in wonder of syncopation. I have witnessed this phenomena with drumming circles, with singers and with musicians warming up. Tones that may start in discordance that becomes a song filled with lyrical rhythms and a precious harmony playing off one another.

Quickly we could feel the dirge start to shift into only part of the whole and adding to the spectrum in expression and no longer the dominant tone. It was not about trying to change things by force and push as one might want to do but in allowing ourselves to be part of the whole and enriched by our being.

California is burning physically in places right now. Maybe in your area of the world there is a fire of some sort burning that is not useful. Access into Heart Centered Awareness and offer your vibration to what is resonating. Don't force and make something happen. Just offer your vibration. Allow it to get as big as it becomes. Feel the difference and let it be real long past your attention span. Notice what happens and how you feel.

We have to remember that each of us, is powerful and part of the whole and in resonance with Life.

What is your vibration?

Consciousness and the Unknown Hand

When the helicopter or boat come to help you out of the rising water and someone literally reach out their hand to pull you aboard, bias is not important. When someone shoots into a crowd and a somebody covers you in protection, bias is not too important.

When resources don't get to people in need because someone doesn't value them as much as someone else, bias does matter. When people are denied coverage or being recognized as a community worth merit bias does matter. It can be life threatening. It is dehumanizing. There is nothing warm and friendly about intentional neglect or extermination

Bias: prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.
"there was evidence of bias against foreign applicants"

Bias, prejudice mean a strong inclination of the mind or a preconceived opinion about something or someone. A bias may be favorable or unfavorable: bias in favor of or against an idea. www.dictionary.com/browse/bias

We all hold biases and we may not recognize them in ourselves. They are perceptual in nature. They are what form us as each individual unique in our stories of Life. Neither right, wrong, good, bad they are a place that we develop out of. We hold judgments about them. They shape our own identity and shape our world and us in it.

They can generate friendly rivalry, they can generate deadly rivalry. They can create isolation. Groups, places of worship, families, clans, sports fans, even friends will hold biases as that is what holds the group together. You may start with one and come to find you don't really fit. Or you fit really well. 

We have a tendency to maybe think that they are foundations and never questioned or to be questioned and not to be touched by evolution. But biases are evolutionary in nature if we allow them to be that way. With a little encouragement we understand that they are often only starting points.

When we use consciousness technologies, like Matrix Energetics, Yuen Method, Access Consciousness or Psych K and others we appreciate how we have set those perceptual frameworks and that they can change. 

Unless you live in a small town where everyone knows everyone,we may live in communities filled with strangers. And strangers are just people who you have not yet met. 

We are also neighbors on this lovely little blue dot as the scientist Carl Sagan would say.  Do you know your neighbor across the street or hallway?

We can all embrace and participate in the community that Houston, Puerto Rico, Las Vegas and disasters of human and nature foster for all of us. Perhaps they are how we relax the personal biases for the moment and just demonstrate care. Putting yourself into someone else's shoes will broaden and humble us.   

Make the time to access Heart Centered Awareness and look into your biases and note if they are truly your guiding principles or just stuff you don't question that you picked up along the way to fit in. Misfortune opens us up to compassion. It has a way of cutting through our biases and reducing us to what is important. It can rid us of our fears of different. 

Total strangers may provide. Someone may look different, dress different, believe different and may be lending you a hand. Don't be like the fella on the roof now at the Pearly Gates because he was waiting for his idea of God showing up to save him and missing opportunity after opportunity of rescue in God's many different forms. 

Grab on and treasure them as they must treasure you.

Consciousness and My Dad

Gil, age 18 high school graduation 1942

My dad's birthday was this past Friday.  He passed away a couple of years ago at age 92 and I have thought much about his world, my world and what might be the same and different.
   
He was born in 1923, a Jew from Brooklyn, New York. That was how he defined himself, though like all of us he was much more. He was one of 6 brothers and a sister who very much grew up in his ethnic heritage of Russian and Romanian immigrant parents who had come here around 1902. Life was tough for many reasons and family got you through it. 

During WW2, a few months after his high school graduation, he joined the Navy and found himself the only Jew and Yankee on a ship's crew of 257. He fought for his life most every day in real ways on that ship. Only because he was trained as a boxer, scrappy and smart did he survive his own countrymen and what he felt the Navy was on that ship. 

He found most of the others to be young men from the South. In his memories they were all bigots/racists except for a few who helped him stay alive. They all had their biases. Dad had his. He was a radarman isolated in a small room listening all the time to his equipment in front of him and also over his shoulder outside of that room. He literally didn't sleep much. 

He always loved this country and what it stood for but understood that principles are only thoughts, ideals, constructs and not actions. He clearly felt how men define themselves. Didn't endear him to the Navy, officers, and with rare exception, men from the South for the rest of his life. 

He was never free of the spiritual, emotional and mental wounds those three years on the ship fostered. For the rest of his life he was always polite, gracious and if you were from the South or a Navy man you had to prove yourself. Commanding respect for the man was not guaranteed because of any title. 

It always filled me with sadness to think that what was happening overseas at that time he was dealing with some of the same dynamics on ship, bigotry and racism. Much which are still present in this country.

And my sadness for all the young men who participated on all the sides of engagement who were like my dad, no matter their biases and their positions, to be forever changed by their service.  

The ideal of the melting pot assimilation the USA treasures is often only that, an ideal. The thought that it didn't matter what you believed you would be accepted was manna from heaven for so many. Land of the Free, Home of the Brave.  

Yet we are creatures of habit, of judgment, whatever that might encompass for each of us. Family, clan, community is always about bias. The biases formed in our original homelands have been brought here. Those biases color our life experiences. 

Life is a mishmash of dynamics, time, space, experiences melding into this incredible expression of being. We are fortunate to enjoy life. No matter our sides of engagement and position we are all Consciousness in action. 

In the current energies present around us it is the right time to question your self and others in what you assume about life. How important your biases of indentity are to you and for others to have them. Utilizing Heart Centered Awareness we loosen them enough to enjoy a more inclusive sense of being. 

My dad was a man of honor. He was loving in his actions and challenging in his thinking. Hard headed, not inclined to change his opinion once formed. And I didn't often share his viewpoints about what Life had to be. As a child of first generation citizens and the Great Depression, his life experiences were very different from mine and he came to different conclusions about his life. I respected them and him as a man of his times. 

He helped to bring out the best in me through that challenge of differences, and the support of his love. He helped me to appreciate the bigger picture that we are as Consciousness. And to take nothing for granted as we are inclined to do. 

One reason to love him was that my dad would also be the first to lend a helping hand when others were reluctant to, even if he didnt like you. Sometimes I am sure that was confusing to him. It is not to me as I embrace duality as polarity.

Dad, I celebrate and honor you by being the best I can be.  

Happy Birthday!
