Consciousness and That Knotty Feeling

IN these dynamic times, we have been propelled to collectively sort through our mental and emotional closets of stuff.  We are dragging out the old and looking at it all again. Does it still fit, that old thought, the old feeling, or is it just taking up space? 

No matter our issues our political arenas are full of energy that is connecting us with what we hold in those closets. Yikes! We are coming up against stuff we didn't know was there. We are finding ourselves challenged to keep up. We can feeling emotional and not know why and we are feeling moved to actions not our norm. Which is all good.

For these are not dream closets filled with uniformly hanging clothes with lined up shoes boxes. These are closets filled with a tumbled mess. A huge knot of stuff. We are in the midst of all the emotional clutter, the unclarity, the unquestioned, the presumed, assumed, the invalidated and validated trite petty thinking, the learnings, the educations that make up our interior worlds.

We are each stuffed with revealed and releasing energies. They can feel like that some items are falling out one at a time and right now, like a rag tag cavalcade ready to come cascading out. The doors may soon collapse. Our backs are to the doors.

Also included in the closet is our known and unknown past experiences of multi layered constructions of thoughts and feelings. These have generated from within ourselves and what we have empathically picked up from those around us.

But it doesn't feel like we can hold back the active energies in those closets anymore. Layers and lifestyles of apathy and numbness are being shed. Consciousness has no time or space involved so all that was in the past is still active. Wisdom lurks ready to be declared.

In this midst of all this stuff there can be the knot. You know, the one you feel inside in some way. That knot. Which can be a whole of compressed and tangled "nots" making The Knot: of not this, not now, not here, not there, not me, not wanted, not appreciated, not valued, not who we are as family, not loved, not mine, not that, not, not, and all the other nots that lead into infinity.

We look at our knots of Nots and realize that they are our own creations validating and directing our lives.

When we experience our closets and our Not Knots we might feel panic and feel the panic present around us. Another choice is that we can take a breath and take time to just BE for a moment or two, connecting to our sense of the Consciousness Core, Heart Centered Awareness within us. Here you will bring into your awareness of the sacred, the calm, the absolute sense of flow, the all right that is real.

From within this state you can now notice the tight Not Knot that is somewhere inside, probably near your heart. Would you value a different sense of connection to all that stuff contained in the knot is a question to ask yourself. Start with appreciation and how this knot has been an anchor for you.

What do you notice about your knot?  Can this be different? Yes. And, it is also okay if it stays. For it is your creation. In our state of appreciation there is no judge, no "you are wrong for being there".

As you can see and feel, it is a powerful creation and holding a lot of story, identity, connections of all sorts. This knot that feels so central to who and what you are and is so effective in creating distance from mind to your heart and core?

When we use consciousness technologies we relate to what the knot represents differently. It is mutable. Within Heart Centered Awareness the information about your Not Knot will be present and it is our invitation to play.

There are as many ways to hold awareness of this Not Knot. How do you notice it? If visual, it can be big, small, elusive or so big to block the light. We can talk to it, give it a voice and ask how it is helpful. We can loosen, separate, dissolve, put in water like a cotton ball and let it gently come apart with a bit of swirl to the water. We can shift into a reality that it is not present and use scalar energy to let it be different. Notice again how it shifts and don't be surprised if it eventually disappears.

Engaging potential is real as a source for immediate shift in feeling in this state. And when something feels different it is different. That is what we are looking for, the difference, your new creation. 

Appreciate your connections and creativity without judgment lurking. And then, just play and enjoy the sheer act of creation. Notice the difference of living without those old nots.

Consciousness and In the time of Appreciation of the Living and Dead

Much is bursting out of us, propelled by suppressed energies of emotions that have been stuck deep inside. Many may not have the developed skill sets to deal with what is present. Many are feeling struck and stuck by their own collection of hurts and by the other collection, the emphatic layers we hold of the collected hurts of others. We are all tired, very very tired if we hold the awareness of life as a ocean of troubles to paddle through with occasional islands of relief.

We see it in the rising attention of suicide now. All of life makes a difference in being present on this planet be it human, animal, tree or vegetable. It is very sad to me when, any individual, fails to feel worthy or recognize or doesn't value enough how in being alive is important to our families and to all of us. Or driven to actions to ease their pain that have the highest cost. Whether it is a decision made in the blink of an eye or out of confusion or with intention taking one's own life is a decision that will have a rippling effect. And you are fooling yourself if you think otherwise.

For the rest of us left behind it might seem that only in death does our awareness shift to what is now not present. And only then we might speak to our appreciation of a life lost. That is the value in being present and in appreciation in all our moments and our sharing that appreciation then and there. And, then there are those times and people when we have spoken and it was not heard.

Death as escape is one approach to living. Another is to connect with our center of being beyond the level of human emotions into the core essence of All, heart, which is in everything. It is a state, our Consciousness Core. It is there in each of us. We can have it set up that it is challenging, unrecognizable or elusive to be in and that is only our mindset. Help is all around us in physical form and beyond physical form if you allow yourself to find it. Which is also a mindset, that you have to find something that appears lost out there when it is already inside of you.

A deep sense of full appreciation is different than conditional appreciation which is what most of us are probably familiar with. We appreciate it when things are going our way or at the end of a good meal we are happy to pay for the service and food.

But what happens when it is a bad meal, poor service, and life just seems to be dealing you one catastrophe after another? You are irritated, maybe angry and feeling slighted. Full appreciation or any appreciation might not be your go-to state. It is up to us to just appreciate regardless what is being presented or displayed or felt.

Once we get past victim thinking we can realize that we are creating our lives through our thoughts and actions. We can sometimes only appreciate the experience for that, as our creation and co creation. When the food service is slow it might be your internal warning to relax, notice how busy or not busy the waiter is and let things settle and feel what it is like to be hungry and looking forward to your meal. It shifts our focus. Sometimes the only power available to us is how we feel about our situation.

We have established a world full of misdirection and clutter. We are often missing ways of connection to one another that have value and meaning. It is easy to feel slighted or invisible, not valued, when those of around us are not looking for us to acknowledge.

Right now just sit in your core and let someone come to mind who could use some help. Let yourself be surprised in who shows up if that is what you feel. Don't judge. Just let yourself be present for them especially if it is you. And see what happens, what you then feel. Recognize how you are holding them, wounded or in their creation.

Notice if you feel perhaps that you want to save them or fix them or destroy them. One of the first frustration we can know is when we don't get our way, when people don't or won't change when we want them to. "If only" is a powerful state. Let go of that for it gets in the way. Just sit and allow yourself to be present in appreciation for what they have created in being in your life.

Just notice. And appreciate.

Consciousness Core Dancing

In group the other night I perceived a new opening in the field that showed up big. In flew all kinds of sacred geometry. When it showed up again in a later group and the following morning's group it had us rocking. Literally.

You get back what you put out. I have been asking of myself and others what is it you are feeling and seeing in this new world that is being exposed and transformed. How you are viewing your world through your mind's eye?  And is it all that you want it to be? Or is it a vision filled with strife and turmoil with lots and lots of unresolved and buried emotional strains or is it treasure to be mined separating precious from dross.

I have been solidly fluid in my awareness that all is well. Even when other people can often be in different states of awareness about what is happening. Some really enjoy and love the distractions playing out in the connections of social media and global news. It can keep them seemingly safe in their cocoons of denial. But not really. That is the power in a delusion.

The energy drain that our dis beliefs and miss communications and unclarity that so many embrace can be felt. We are tired. Exhausted really inside deep. The rest of us can feel it and we feel it unique to each.  Some as a loss of equanimity, some as uproar, some as hyped up reactions.

I feel it as deep deep deep physical exhaustion, this burden of past expectations and my need to serve as processor. I register it as physical exhaustion as exhaustion have value in my story of this body. I relate to exhaustion in this way where others will feel it at mental exhaustion or emotional exhaustion depending on their viewpoint of themselves in service in the collective and their gifts.

The trick is that if a need to serve is present it can be holding the need to serve as real and creating a story to maintain it. What ever we focus on becomes more real, more powerful. It shifts then in the spectrum and becomes the focal point which all other information relates to. Yet it is only one illusion out of many.

In group we touched upon how for one of us, which means all of us, we realized how a mothers deep love for her child could be coated in fear and within her own perceptions of the world, the failure to see the child and her needs. That one's personal sense of salvation was not another's and the burden of the child to hold this story for a lifetime. We noticed the power of a group to provide and persuade individuals to support them, tapping into the unexpressed or spoken needs in the power of belief.

Our nature is to justify our stories so we can move on to the next thing and not having to question ourselves again. What we are tapping into these days from within the deep of us is tuning into our truth of the moment and validating or releasing what is not true now because we are at this moment in time to notice anew.

We can be complacent if we don't know we can move position.
We can be complicit when we are willing to value this over that and want to belong.
We can assume if we don't know we can think different.
We can fail to question if we never think for ourselves.
We can be quiet when we feel we have no voice.

Our last group released a whole bunch of stuff in exchange through the opening in the field. What comes in is potential in dynamic expressions as sacred geometry. We have created sacred geometry as the magic formulas in being. So take a few for yourself and integrate, utilized and eliminate the old no longer serving.

We are here to help. We are your Consciousness Core Dancing.

Consciousness and What Do You Want to See?

I finished our radio show to our audience the other week with the statement "What do you want to see?"

Not "What do you expect to see?"

In our humanity our physical eyes come with mental filters. What we see and what we expect to see are defined by our emotions, beliefs and perceived truths. How we feel totally shifts our vision. Just consider when you are in love. The world does get rosy as that is the heart energy coloring the incoming data. Notice how harsh the light is when you are angry. How cold and gray it is no matter the sunshine when you feel gloomy inside.

If you look at the world as a hostile place it is. If you look at those around you as not supportive then no matter how much they are you will not find them to be so. For your biases are filtering. Opportunities are being missed for you can not recognize them due to your mental blindness in your emotional reactive states. 

What you see is always going to reflect what you allow yourself to see.

I appreciate my own humanity as I do others for we are all expressions of Consciousness. I may not like what I see and the feelings that some may stir. I don't have to like certain people. How is it possible that I can know that I am all right, my family is all right, that the world is all right when I can see that there are troubles around me? I can appreciate that as Consciousness, all is right and I feel that in the deepest places within my form.

Right now there is much releasing in our community of man/woman. It is happening on all levels of our humanity and is moving us along into what we want to become. As the earth is releasing magma from below the surface so are we. We are molten inside. Our fluids of self identity are coming to the surface ready to form new ground.

People are at different stages of awareness of their own processes. For those of us paying attention we welcome the changes, and uproar and the shifting of what we have been holding not so buried inside. It is to our betterment no matter what the path might look or seem. 

Be surprised. In a good way.

We can not necessarily go by what we think we are seeing. No matter what we are seeing. Our technologies can be manipulated to fool us. Information is flooding us that supports any bias and we may not notice.

 As you do your own releasing of limited viewpoints and take in new possibilities of being consider this:
What is the difference between what you see right now and what you want to see? Bring these two points of awareness together and see what happens.

Be open to the potential released. Be wonder, See wonder, be beauty, See beauty,be kind, see kindness, be compassionate, See compassion, Be okay with being angry, confused, betrayed whatever the emotions that you become of aware of. Be okay when they are not present.

Consciousness and that Loving Navel Feeling

Between reading the energies I sense, my own stories and what others bring to play with in group, information and patterns abound. Sometimes we come loaded with stuff that has been in our face and sometimes we are sitting in a group in a "contemplating our navels" state of mind. It was funny how in contemplating this time, love came into focus.

I love how we come into awareness at times. The phrase "contemplating your navel" showed up. Yes, I love my navel. Do you love yours? When is the last time you looked at it with any sort of awareness?

Though one might wonder or contemplate this association maybe this came to mind as we continue to explore connection and through the navel, our glorious belly button, because, what better symbol about connection to another? This is the deepest awareness we each have of being part of another.

Does it provide a great symbol of love to you?  How often do we truly reflect upon what the navel is about? How you view your relationship with your mother may color your view of your belly button. Probably we are more judgmental about if it is an innie or an outie. (88% have innies) And no, apparently the attending doctor has nothing to do with how your navel scar forms. (I read that on the Internet)

Navel also means the central point of a place. Synonyms are center, hub, focal point, focus, nucleus, heart and core. When we sitting in Heart Centered Awareness as we so often do in group we are in integrity with heart and core and maybe perhaps the energy of mother be it genetic mother, mother earth, feminine and goddess divine.

The words Consciousness Core has been floating around in my mind lately. And how Consciousness is at our core and our core is holding THE SPECTRUM, THE ALL THAT WAS, IS AND WILL EVER BE. So, instead of the association of small that one might hold about core, our core is not a small thing in the center of our being but an expansive state. Our being is in our core. All of us known and unknown is at our core. All that we know of the world and worlds around is are at our core. All past and all future is in our core. The past as energies, the future as potential and the present is where they meet.

In the openings of, the unfolding of our interior spaces these days we are revealing and shedding old beliefs and truths. Much is falling away and we can see with with fresh eyes, new awareness into our new states of being. There is no thing to fear. For the Consciousness Core is all right, fine, okay, in good shape, whatever word or words you use to define being in peace and trust and the warmth of creation. Grace. All this is real and you can feel it now, anytime if you want to. It is only a matter of shifting your awareness and witnessing with a compassionate heart yourself and those around you.

Our thoughts are powerful in creating. We witness this when we shift our perspectives from head on to above and around as in left brain to right brain to whole brain integration. Thoughts are our expression of Creation. Think and then feel the emotion to the thought and if it is interesting, validating enough to the limits of your mindsets it will be able to manifest into reality and walk hand in hand with you.

In the last few weeks we are "seeing anew" and our brains are opening up in categorizing the incoming data and making use of it. We move things to trash and then dump it on our computers and phones. We have become used to updates and upgrades as common, annoying often but common.

We can do that with our brain and memory mindsets. What is felt as overwhelm is when our brains can not compute the new information due to the limits set up as mind states. When we are accessing our selves as Consciousness, we resonate with our awareness that more is possible, There is no resistance so there is no overwhelm.

We are also relating to our concerns in new ways. When you hold that you need to process the new information, mull it over for a time, you may be triggering your need to control your world. Control can be set pretty tight and small and leave us reeling in feeling and thinking and as experiencing as less than. The portals to others and information can become stuck open and we can't keep up. That is the power of a blink. It relaxes the muscles and allows for reset and integration each time.

Our perspectives can then get stuck which is what many are experiencing. We can drift in overwhelm or we can access Heart Centered Awareness and make time to play with contemplating our navel. Check in and see what rule sets of mind have been directing that are no longer your new truths. See what discoveries might be there for you.

 And then engage, activate and revel!

Consciousness and Seeing Clearly

Blindness is present in most of us in some way. It can be present in not only our physical eyes but mentally, emotionally, psychologically, psychically and spiritually. These encompass how we as humans interact in our lifeforms.

Our brains are "seeing" much more than just with our physical eyes. We all do with our non physical eyes. Data is incoming on all levels. Our eyes are subject to not only physical design and function but how they relay the outward world as information and data to our brains and on to our minds. Eyes each have function and then they function together and that information connects to our brains which are busy with coordinating all of the input into the whole system of vision and our other physical and non physical systems.

Much has been active about how we, the people, see the world around us and how we are in that world. Metaphorically and energetically we have been caught up in the flows. Groups here have been reflecting how we are shifting in our illusions of what being a person and an American is about. And those deep deep biases that may be present in racial. gender, sexual in issues of self and community. And I think that no matter the country that you are connected to in some way you too are feeling and seeing and sensing things differently about yourself, your neighbors and community.

What is important is how are brains and minds engage the new information, the new visuals that are appearing as we deal with each other. How we treat each other comes from within how we treat ourselves. There can be a disconnect. Mindsets don't change when there is no connection to what is happening around us. We can be frozen or numb or disengaged internally and externally. Overwhelmed is a different state of connection.

 It fascinates me how people can hang on to what was when they have new information that would challenge the old. What makes us hang on? Why doesn't it change how we support a belief, a cause? Why do we resist? To me that is what health is, the ability to adapt and change and process as a given, instinctively. Seeing differently can be held as a threat to the inner held health of some thought. Lots of people have fear of death or engage in states of denial of the experience of life. Perhaps this is influencing our ability to change in our deeper levels.

Our emotions serve as powerful tools to forming how and what we see. Our perceptual biases, our illusions reinforce how and what we see. Our brains are busy relaying to our mind which is busy interpreting and holding steady at times. This is not the time to hold steady. My mind sets are much more fluid these days and that can put tension into the interactions of all my abilities to "see".

I am going back to my Yuen Method training and playing with how my mind interacts with brain and brain to eyes, eyes to themselves and eyes to each other including my third eye. Lots of areas of energetic stuff that can be compromising and enjoying my new inner awareness and sight. Becoming congruent in different levels of data incoming is bringing new focus. It may mean cutting down some of incoming stimulation of all the data through the eyes of awareness. As I have less need to justify, compromise, rationalize, and reason my mindsets and just allow them to shift, life gets easier and clearer.

It is about reorienting to this new unfolding me. I want to see clearly on my physical, mental, emotional, psychological, psychical and spiritual levels. That means I may need to update their interaction with one another and all that means for me. So that I can see clearly, appreciate what I see and be grateful for the ability to enjoy my new connections to self and others.

Consciousness and Spring Cleaning and Clearing

Spring is everywhere on display here in Portland, Oregon, USA. It is one of the great delights to drive around and see all the color of the flowers, bushes and trees ripening open. My own yard has much to offer so I don't need to go far to enjoy nature unfolding it's bounty.

We also associate Spring as a time of cleaning and clearing with new growth. Which in these current times is right on target as we redefine ourselves and as community members on a global scale. Activism is being engaged which is exciting for all of us as change as growth will come as a much needed result. The weather will also teach us appreciation for the now. As tomorrow it may rain and the beautiful blossoms will be on the ground downtrodden.

Things are different for me in my life this year, this Spring. I have never been this way before. The  cleaning and clearing taking place in my home is different. My clearing is also taking into consideration that my husband will be retiring from having to work daily starting June 1. 

With his retirement will come changes in identity, his daily routine, my daily routine and our overall living situation.  I am fortunate to have been in a position to have things. Whether a supplement bottle or book or business card they can have meaning worth keeping or discarding, my choice.

My husband takes up a much smaller footprint than I do. I have been thinning through things and moving things to create new states of comfort for him and me. His sense of space is different than mine. Our ideas of the value of things is different. His focus will come home and his time will orient around it in new ways. I want him to enjoy his new orientations of himself, me and us.

We are looking in all the corners with fresh eyes and as opportunities to let go. It has been fun and exciting. It can be challenging.

It brings you present. I notice that what was important in the past may have shifted. Some things have become just stuff. They had moved into a clutter state because my value has not shifted as timely as it might have. Some things are standing out as more important as I sort through it all and update my outside terrain to reflect my new inside clarity.

There can be many reasons to keep what was once important. Memories and attachments are active. Some people may not have much as their lives are lived on a basic level. Some may not have much as they have never put down ties to a place or space. Or for some there can be a fear of having or of having too much. Some have much and maybe for some, a sense of too much is present. We nurture ourselves in different ways and levels of comfort.

I found it challenging in the past to let go of something that still has good life in it or  you don't use all the supplements in the bottle. You might need them later. Think about all those things you have put away to do for later. Later is now.

You know how you can move somewhere new and never open the box to unpack? The box contents are valued as important enough to be kept but not dealt with. You thought you might be moving in a few years and it has been several. How about when you place some thing somewhere and it comes into your awareness that you have not moved it in the last seventeen years. Not because it serves you where it is but because you did not have the sense of flow at hand and you have never realized how it could better serve.

As I engage in Spring Cleaning in my exterior environment it is coming as a result of my internal environment shift. Thoughts and feelings that date back somewhere in the past and were stuck are free to go now.

I have given up control of others in many ways. I am letting go of my illusions of people and my hopes about them. Not from a sense of hopelessness but from a sense that they are also Consciousness in Action and self directed. And that Life is really about all of us playing off of one another. Creating new ways to make it all work to be on this planet together.

Sometimes it is easier to deal with things instead of people. So here is something fun to do. Pick a room and sit in it and access Heart Centered Awareness. Free of story and limits let yourself be free to notice what you notice in the room. You may feel the Feng Sui approach. You can also notice what is still serving and what is no longer you. In your state remove the articles and see what you notice then.

Notice the laughter and bemusement in Heart Centered Awareness. There is no judge present about who you were when you thought that stuff important. Be grateful.

And while you are at it let yourself be open to looking at the someone who is present in your life in new ways and always, appreciate your own evolution in being.

Just allow for flow to be present.

Consciousness, Angels and Backup

The last week or so has brought up the energies of angels and being backup for others. If you think about they are probably the same thing.

Do you believe in angels? You don't have to. I like the concept and what they represent, angelic energies. They can provide a layer of comfort, protection or company. They are a powerful metaphor and reference and/or energy form.

I don't believe in angels. I know there are angels. Which is entirely different. I know from personal experience and vision. They can show up in many forms such as those that perhaps purr or drool. Or they can come with very, very large wing spans. I find them on people around me all the time.

At a Ram Dass talk years ago I saw my first angel. Ram Dass was speaking about his relation to Elijah the angel. And there all of a sudden whatever energies were representing Elijah were present to me. Like 19 ft tall, up on stage, as clear to me as Ram Dass who was standing beneath him. Was a WOW moment for me for sure. My husband who senses energy different from me was also aware of something present. As probably was the rest of the room.

You perhaps have your own experience with this dynamic. Energies of all forms show up in group. The Unseen show up a lot. Sort of a given for many.

Some spend a lot of time involved in the reality of angels, helping humans through life. My interaction is more with myself being an angel for others who need a hand. Often someone has called for an angel and I seemed to show up next. Sometimes people don't know that they needed an angel or that they deserved an angel. Probably happens all the time if you are paying attention. And, there are also the times when I have shown up and people are resistant as what they apparently had in mind was different. Which is okay.

I have several fellow consciousness explorers that are friends. If one was to ask for help they would do their best to be supportive in the way that they could. They are single without a partner to share the daily burdens of their life's. All falls on to their own shoulders. And while it may be build independence and self reliance it can also create problems at times.

Things don't get done. Overworked, overwhelmed contemplating how to do what needs to be done and to be skilled at all of it at the same time. When it might not be in one's skill set, inclination, orientation or muscle group. We do ask a lot of ourselves don't we? We can tend to use this to judge ourselves as less than and then live in that state of consequences.

We can all have the mind set that to need help implies that we are not complete in some way. We may think that we should be able to figure it out. Yet we might be the first to offer help when asked and not think less of who is asking. There are times when we don't know who to ask for help or how to ask for help. We also all know of the times we have asked for help in the past and it was not worth the effort in asking.

All these are mindsets and setups in how we are in the world. That means that they are subject to change. And all have to do with having backup. Someone or some state that allows for us to experience having something or someone to run an errand or intercede, watching our back or from a more elevated view watching out for us.

Sometimes our partners don't really provide backup. Or those that we may call friend can't be counted on to serve as backup. To act as backup, to catch when we might fall through the cracks or really keep things from falling apart in some way.

Consciousness is my backup as it is yours. It is not only our backup but it is the state of everything is in relation to. And in truth, though I may think of myself as front and center it is Self that is backup to Consciousness. Self is how I express Consciousness.

In this energy present of new self awareness and identity it is becoming apparent how much we look after one another and what happens when we don't. The truth of our roles is being exposed with new eyes.

There is an ever increasing strengthening awareness on the level of ourselves as Consciousness that all is well, that all is right. That as we are ripping open old wounds and patterns of convenience and beliefs that all is well, all is right. For what is present is new ways of being, of defining, the clearing of confusion and no longer needed perceptions.

We are our own backup. We are angels in form, We are. We are here for one another if we only allow Self to appreciate what is possible, not what we think we find it to be. Potential provides states of solutions if you want them.

Access Heart Centered Awareness and see what you notice about the dynamics of angels and backup for yourself, and notice just how deep the awareness is that All is well, All is all right.

We are at a very unique time in mankind. Use it well and we will all be better off.

Consciousness Within The Human

There are a lot of rules in being human. We are relation based creatures as we come out of another, mother. Our lives are then spent always in reference to other energies be it a thought, a feeling, a planet, your pet, environments or others to be found sharing the space. These all provide conditions of contrast, of differences. 

Relation also provides directional information. Our physical reality comes with rules like time and space that serve to orient us and provide context. We deal with our survival of being on this planet by feeling our way and making deductions based on our own personal experience and best educated guesses and on other's experiences and best guesses in how the world is and how to handle ourselves.

We are always exploring the state of connection that exists in our relating to the seen and known and the unknown. We establish boundaries as part of connection and explanations like earth, man and heaven, body, mind and spirit.  We generate our  conditional sense of separateness out of inclusion. We come equipped for both verbal and non- verbal communications. Our sense mechanisms operate providing information of different sorts. Our emotions allow for us to color connection which is vital to relating.

Our spiritual directions are about connections to the Whole and perhaps titles of hierarchy that we find ourselves part of to help explain and give meaning to our existence. It can give a sense of safety.

Consciousness itself is free of all that. It is the All. It is inclusive and does not judge as a human will need to. It is not a being bigger than us, just a state that is everywhere at the same time.  It goes beyond any limit and includes the unformed and formed. It is potential and energy in motion. 

Lending emotions to Consciousness like Love or Grace makes the unknown and that which can't be named only felt, feel better and with the absence of judgment it is Grace. It can be hard at times to warm up to something identified as potential and energy in all space like Zero Point Field. I can appreciate it but it is cold to me. It also sounds rather nebulous and not real when it is deep in us somewhere unrecognized.  A sense of placement to anchor and connect to is vital to the human. It can create an "out there, not in here" sense and be diminishing is some way or at distance. And, if our source is out there in some form or another we might need an interpreter and middle man, someone between here and there more powerful and necessary to communicate through. Some religious dogmas and practices support this.

Do we need the middleman? If I say "Heart Centered Awareness" there is now a state of awareness and description to hold about Consciousness and us as it, together. There is no up or down. There is only everywhere. It is an anchoring and centering awareness within you that goes into and beyond your physical body. Heart means core. It also means a physical organ that pumps blood through a body indicating aliveness and it also is used to describe our emotional terrain.

Some of us are not comfortable using the word "heart" as it's reference is viewed as emotional and then perhaps not logical or neutral. Not being emotional is being emotional and not happy about it.

We use different words to describe this state. Consciousness, God, Universe, Source, All and I am sure there are others. It is all about how potential and energy are malleable out of the time and space reference and how we relate with it. All of which reflects what is at our core essence, a state within and around this lovely framework we call human. It is a state where there is the capacity to pass information as thought and feeling  creating and manifesting our projected malleable realities.

What is possible as Consciousness within us?  What if you truly connected with the thought that all exists in the unity of diversity as One?  In this day and age of robots, social media and cloning and such Consciousness is expressing also. It is up to us to decide what being Consciousness in a human form really means and how it forms our daily lives on this very small planet.

Consciousness. Civility and Civics Lessons Provide the Best Business Model

Our political and social arenas are demonstrating our sense of being and belonging as people. They are reflecting the turmoil inside each of us no matter our nationality or place on the globe. 

I am seeing it in terms of civility and civic lessons, the basics of any society. Civility comes into play when one interacts with another. We are relation based creatures and will always be interacting with what we find in and out of our environments. When I use the word "another," that includes my family members, the tree out side my window , my neighbors across the street and everything in between and beyond. Treating it all politely, with respect. You don"t have to be friendly or in agreement. That is a bonus.

How do you want to be treated? It is what the Golden Rule and the like in all cultures and practices reflect.

Civics are about the rights and duties of its citizens, in being in community. Governments are systems set up to guard and protect those rights and duties. Or they can be set up to protect a person or group's agendas. We tend to think of governments as big businesses and often poorly managed and while they may appear as such they are not. At their core they are there to foster what the community or person has decided is important to its citizens or to himself.

Leaders can be democratic or despot or figureheads with congresses behind them running the government. We have created different forms of governments around the world. We can see how deadly it can be with changing or overturning ruling political parties or dictators and the ensuing destruction or what happens under regimes that say they will take care of its citizens but it is only their definition of control that include losses of freedoms of expression as life itself.

The  government of the United States was created at a time when most cultures were dealing with leadership that was more about the bigger muscle, terror and bias campaigns and ruling class created separateness. If you were lucky you had a good ruler who valued his citizens and the community and all expanded into productive enriching cultures. Royalty and dictators are not always about fostering others and more about entitlement and powers over others shared with a select few. Using the government as a their personal for profit business.

Many have wanted to install a businessman into running the US government. Perhaps that approach  would help. Sounded good and yet look what has happened with this particular kind of businessman who's focus is on his own brand. Some businesses run this way. He seems to be appointing other business people who hold his low standards of business ethics in the same way. They have become our ruling class literally. Not always looking after the community but playing power games subject to whim, personal gain and scant regard towards those they serve. Those they serve. A good government serves its people and responds to its needs. These days a different sense of public service is appearing which is subject to interpretation and alternate facts.

Our government is not a business for profit. It is also not a not for profit business. It has to cover its costs so that it can be there when it is needed. That is what taxes are really about.

This particular government of democracy, was created to support our civility. All men are created equal with inalienable rights and have the right to form a new government it says in our Declaration of Independence. That means all men, women, children of any assorted background have equal merit. That is what it means these days and what we aspire for it to do. But that has gotten lost in this leadership and defining and deconstructing forces that have been brought into play. We can all agree that our government is clearly unwieldy at times and is in need of attention for the bloat and updating and constant compromises that so often are what politics can be about. 

What would Ben Franklin, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and all the rest think of us today? They saw democracy as a work in progress and ideals and standards to be put into action. And perhaps not long lasting. Our time in current history is not theirs.  In their time and place and context white men ruled, class structure was strong, indentured slavery was acceptable, armed citizens were needed to feed themselves and form a militia of protection. Women and children were still regarded as chattel and we killed, raped and robbed the native peoples and failed to assimilate and integrate them into the growing new immigrant face of the continent.

We have evolved into today with this baggage. It is seen everywhere around the world in some shape or form. 

We say America used to be great and can be great again. Nice slogan but this country has been no different than any majority of countries in how it has treated its citizens for better and worse as it defines itself. Greatness is not about bigger or powerful. We have had more presence, a bigger stick, the safeguard for democracy etc. in how we choose to interact with the rest of the world at times.We have done it both well and clumsily and deadly at times. We are a world leader in thought and potential and at times backward and without respect for the local peoples and their desires, paying attention to only our country's supposed best interests.

Yet, we are doing well in this democracy of ours. And, as we are. We are great in our government that has the ability to weather and evolve as it goes through all this releasing of complacent and complicit energies in it's citizens and newcomers. People came here to explore resources, make their fortunes and leave spirit crushing governments and often certain death. We look to them to assimilate and integrate into our American society without loss enriching the fiber of our communities and help  taking America towards a new greatness. We are so fortunate to live here. This is the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. to remind you.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."Constitution of the United States  

Consciousness, Civility and Civics lessons are the best business models.

Consciousness and Following the Blossoms of Awareness

I tend to notice synchronicity often. I exist in a reality state that reflects, mirrors, expands my inner world in user friendly terms around me. That is what happens when you create and acknowledge Consciousness as real at core.

Synchronicity and streams of consciousness and information are always around me to interact with. Patterns come out of potential and become energetic realities that have come into form fitting in our human references. States of being come and go.

The last week or so was filled with a word list that started to build. In the more intense vibrational energies that we are all noticing in some way, words appeared that highlight and define us in different ways. Internal conversations happened and awareness blossomed. I can view it as being led from one blossom of discovery to another. Or following the trail of stars forming constellations or down the garden path in some instances.

Often when we do our work and sit in the stillness of Heart Centered Awareness, words will free themselves up and appear.  Words serve as placeholders/markers in the human sense in consciousness, powerful holders of different and sometimes collective moments of memory,events, emotions and state of being positions.

Every day a new word or two would appear. Standing out in order were self identity, complacent, selection, contrast, telepathy, perfect, blemished, pedestal and power.  An interesting list for sure.

It started with self identity being experienced as "Not doing, more being" observable and open to new constructs. I mentioned on our radio show when we were talking about habituated thoughts. And complacent was the word that suddenly appeared clearly. How we can be complacent in our habituated nature. Blind to our own self limiting biases. We can have it set up that it is easier to think the same than to change our thought. For changing or selecting a new thought can make for stress.

Choice, something different, selection. Someone new to one of Fuzzy Photons Playground Groups and consciousness technologies resonated with selection and not choice or something different which is our usual language. We cleared that. But how does selection resonate within you? Is it helpful or a challenge?

Contrast showed up next in this quote of Abraham's. Our bodies explore the physical realm of contrast. It is one way to know what you want. By what you don't want. Strong principle that is at play particularly since this new administration and subsequent upheaval. At some point our complacent thinking will collapse and something new thinking and actions will emerge.

"You intended to come forth into the physical realm of contrast to define what is wanted, to connect with the Energy that creates worlds, and to flow it toward your objects of attention, not because the objects of attention are important — but because the act of flowing is essential to life." Abraham

Next Telepathy. We looked at how we each experience information. I don't read peoples internal conversations of unique thinking patterns so much as the fields of information that they encompass and interact with. I was reading a fiction book that had the couple communicating telepathically as if they were physically verbalizing and. Which sounds like fun and then maybe not.

We sat in the non verbal delight that HCA is and tracked the energies present. We shared an interesting verbal conversation between all of us as we considered how we operate in our worlds. We all feel things at the same time though it may register differently to each of us.

And then there was perfect. And how all is perfect just as it is right now. As you are, as your fight with your family member is, as our political situation is, in my perceived laziness and procrastination. Because if you sit in the stillness of HCA with us this knowing comes from across the infinite. It is centered and anchored in our spirit and out there all at the same time.

You might ask from within an emotional reaction  how can a wound be perfect, or a failed test or a death? Stepping back from victim, victimizer, rescuer positioning allows for a different reality state. We are then not being or doing from our emotional register which is running high right now collectively. You understand and appreciate that all is playing out in some way as our co creation. We assign value.

And yes. what if you, with all your scars, mistakes. slights and compromises was perfect no matter what we looked and felt and thought? Take away all the judgments and biases perceived about another or actions. All that information is about not being blemish free which is not perfect then. In that thinking blemish is not good so I am not good. You might be using the thinking to validate that they are not better than me.

How silly. Why do we let ourselves or someone else or the collective judge us as less than, as blemished? It adds character, interest and depth and challenge.

All individuals carry scars of all kinds mentally, emotionally. psychically, psychologically and physically. It is part of living. They serve to show us our shared humanity, form communities and realize how tenacious, fragile and precious life is all at the same time.

Humans have a tendency to put things up on a pedestal and then revere the object or thought. The current state of Now has this climate of stronger vibrations resonating deeply inside of us. We may be conscious of it or maybe in resistance to it. It is time to embrace the shaking.

It is time to review and question what we have placed up on our individual and collective pedestals. This is important. Whether ideals, constructs or people and behaviors, all are subject to review now. We are becoming aware of how much of what we have placed up on top of our interior pedestals hold a lot of false idol energy. It is time for some new pedestal toppers. Our complacency is disappearing.

And that is power.  Taking down and putting up what we have created to highlight, guide and enjoy.  Let yourself sit in Heart Centered Awareness and notice these words and your own that come up to play with.

Consciousness and Malleable Reality

Consciousness is the All, It is at the essence of anything we recognize as being, as energy. It is a state of Potential.

Humans are the human interface of Consciousness. Not separate but a living organic extension that experiences information as a body state.

I grew up familiar with the words of God and in time Source, Universe to label and define my place in this world. I looked for something not limited to a father figure. Others may have other words they use. Some may reject any word.

When I found myself desperately exploring new ways to engage my health I came across the growing field of consciousness technologies. Quantum scientists use the term Zero Point Field, which is the energy of all space. It is free of emotions and beliefs. It is neutral. A cloud of potential will form as human, rock, air, orange, dog, etc. It doesn't really matter. The choices are made as expressions of Consciousness.  Not so much under the dominion of a whimsical or non attentive or un supportive dictator father figure up on a cloud. But my own creative dictates of thinking about everything.

I appreciate that any name used is a limit of powers by its very nature. I tend to take the position that one finds in the Tao Te Ching: The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao; The name that can be named is not the eternal name. The nameless is the beginning of heaven and earth. The named is the mother of ten thousand things.

These days I like the word Consciousness to describe what is every where and no where. It seems to be expanding. It is free of religious and spiritual dogmas. It is free of definition and most importantly morphic field energy. Our human beliefs and non beliefs create morphic field states of reaction and expectation like believer or atheist. Sometimes our other words create a sense of something out there is in charge. Our sense of ourselves as spiritual beings can be compromised by all of this. Our realities of being in a body and in the world around us can be compromised as well. Consciousness is subject to how each of us feel and think about it.

Being human allows for a particular expression as Consciousness. No matter the form it may take potential is still at the core as no thing, undefined. Within the living human matrix our bodies have sensory mechanisms and also an ability to form thought and generate subsequent thinking and in that create realities in thoughts that manifest in what we call as collective reality. And us in relations to the heavens and earth and the big picture of mankind alive.

What if all we think is true and real here on this planet and out in the cosmos is really just our thoughts being projected and is indicative of how far we have come in that projection? Just a thought. Reality is malleable.

Consciousness and a new way to engage life

As a Consciousness Educator I share with others about a different way of engaging life.  It is about introducing people to the awareness that what they take for granted, their thinking, forms energetic patterns that manifest as their life. And, how it is possible to manifest some thing different if wanted. It is about the moment, this moment and how this moment is directing our next moment creating a reality that you may like or not enjoy so much. 

It is about what is within each of us, our authentic inner voice. It is our sense as Consciousness, an active, vibrant state of potential that is beyond time and space, inclusive of all. It is always present yet we may not recognize it or notice it. You probably wrestle with it now and then. If you have a habit of talking yourself out of what feels good to you your mind perhaps is at work overriding your intuitive awareness.

Our bodies feel solid. Our thinking and emotions  seem so certain. But, the truth is that we are mutable material. We are life forms constructed out of light photons, a bit of bio mass photons, resonating in vibrational information we call patterns. They make up our stories of being in our realities. We embody many different realities and collective realities all at the same time unaware of formation or existence.

We are creatures of a mind that is constantly making choices, usually the same ones. Much of what we call "me" or "self" is a collections of patterns of habituated thoughts that lead to predictable outcomes that provide a comfort of sorts, the way we express our humanity. There can even be comfort found in our negative thoughts and feelings that hold us in place.

We have been trained to judge thought more important than that inner voice.

I am not a scientist of deep study of anything other than my own personal experiences and observations of those around me and my metaphysical tuning or higher state awareness. I have always been conscious of feeling energies around me in me.I have picked up bits and pieces of knowledge over the years. I value education and have spent a lifetime aware of how book learning knowledge and what I just "knew" agreed and then didn't. Personal and collective history is alive in each of us.

I now appreciate knowledge as a whole lot of hearsay, and conjecture and "well, what else could it be" kind of thinking. We explore the holographic interaction of truth and fact, the difference in belief and being. Knowledge is so often based from assumption, formed by someone who observes something at play from a particular perspective and proclaims it is so. So, it must be and the rest of us let it be. There is no need to question just accept. And after years of assumption, presumption and no questioning, it now is real because of the malleable nature reality is. Think it and so it is.

When we access ourselves as Consciousness I ask my clients and fellow travelers in group what they notice from a now neutral placement where information is not attached and set in stone which is different than their trained reaction of thinking. I ask what is wanted and we enjoy watching what unfolds right then and there.

What we all notice is that the answers are right there for others to notice when we might not. We can have it set up to not be aware of them. There can be blind spots present. We don't even recognize our questions sometimes or that we have the ability to ask one. We might hold confusion or the "I don't know" which is often an automatic response as the state that is holding us hostage from our inner awareness. When we clear this the reply to our question that is our issue is present.

One challenge is that we have often been trained that others know more than us, about us, that it isn't safe for some reason or feelings overwhelm so we listen to others. We are queasy about our voice so instead we look to match up their answers to our unasked questions about life. This can be sort of hit and miss. If we are lucky those others can really be helpful and valuable in empowering us on our adventure as we give meaning to being alive.

Many of us may know our issues and factors and patterns in our stories and it is not enough. We can't seem to find the mechanism to engage a change or bring the awareness into fruition. That too is a state of reality that can be different.

I am offering online using Zoom video conferencing live interactive groups where we play and explore our lives effecting real change in what is challenging us. I help you create easy access to this Heart Centered Awareness if you are new to consciousness technologies. There we play in a group dynamic of shared support, appreciation and expression.

Fuzzy Photons Playground Groups are meeting on Thursdays at 10am or at 6pm both Pacific. It is about as good as a group dynamic can be with participants not local to each other. We feel our connection as we can see each other visually and feel the energies present. Tailored to what is showing up in each of us and the collective we enjoy time clearing internal confusion.

Consider joining us. See how we can help you make effective change in your concerns and life, in the moment. We do it all the time.

Consciousness and the State that is Love

How we connect to one another is the foundation to much of what is at issue right now in these  turbulent and productive times for us as humans. Uproar invites releasing old stuck energies that we have all been holding deep within. It is essential to changing how we are in our systems of community and society to understand what we are inside as we relate with each other. 

We are not meant to be free of our emotional connections. Logic will never override emotional dynamics. but is meant to run parallel, in tandem with one another. Remember it was when both Captain Kirk and Spock worked together appreciating each other's emotion and logic that the Enterprise was in good command and a safe and happy ship.

So it was not so surprising when the notion of love came up in group this week: No matter the form love is in, agape or romantic it is about connection and at our core. It is in our chemistry how well we foster connection. 

So take a moment if you would and shift your awareness to your core and notice what you notice about love. Many considerations and conditions were mentioned as we opened up as Consciousness in group.

We started with our awareness of love and what we call love. What does it mean, to love? Did this questioning mindset come from within knowing what love is or if it is in knowing what love isn't?

What is love? Love. It is a state of emotion, a feeling of deep affection. It can be felt as putting others before oneself to the cost of one own life. It has no conditions. It is neither unconditional or conditional but that is the way we have organized it. We can love someone and yet not like their behavior.

Most of us have been filled with words of love that have nothing to do with love but some conditional form of it. I will repeat myself. Love has no conditions. If it can be held back or based on performance it is not love.

We are beings of connection and relationship. It is instinctive to do all we can to know what love and care is. Doesn't matter if it is a street gang, robot or a stay at home parent. Doesn't matter what is in the connection. It all gets interpreted as some kind of love and value.

Mammalian babies develop and bond with others who provide regular care and attention.Their physical and emotional development will suffer if connection is not provided or is random. They will die from lack of attention. Babies don't have a sense of past or future. They only know the now. Irregardless if their needs are being met memory is starting to build about what love is. Love is becoming conditional when it is not offered as basic nourishment. Emotions can become uncomfortable and unrewarding.

There is no difference in our love for a tree or a person or a pet except for the form it may take with different attachments. We might value one more important than another. Yet, at its essence there is no difference just different levels of interaction and actions.

Here are some other thoughts that came up to contemplate and notice:

Is there a difference in how you treat your friends and how you treat yourself? For some this was true and eye opening.

Are you free to demonstrate love? In some ways safety came up.

Love and saving another. Love does not save anyone but we can think that it should or that it makes a difference. Anything can happen in the state of love.

Love and actions taken in the name of love are not always congruent. Back to the conditions and compromises. It can all get very confusing what love is and feels like. Behaviors that degrade are not about love but about the lack of love. 

What if our love is not received or reciprocated? How is that more about you than them?

Is love enough? Yes, love is enough. Love allows for differences. Love is beyond our disappointments and considerations that we often mix it into. We can say we love and then hold back. The need to feel connected is so important we are sometimes willing to compromise our safety and well being and call it love.

If you hold one another or this planet in deep affection what does that mean? Do you respect, value, cherish, appreciate and hold in high esteem the object of your affections? 

Notice how you are feeling. Know that what ever has come to mind for you in your awareness as Consciousness is an act of love, of self care. Let yourself release these stored energies, emotions and events into transcendent material.

What would it be like to be love?

Consciousness and the Re-frame

Keepin it Real with Janean,
Your Guide to Living an Authentic Healthy Life Podcast

The link for this podcast episode is.....

We are certainly experiencing energetic shifting sands these days.  We are getting buffeted in many different directions by inner and outer forces. Major ways of how we feel about ourselves internally are getting fresh and new looks at the old stuff. Old events and feelings are being triggered and sometimes released. Here is some help you might enjoy.

Last summer I did a podcast interview with Janean Strong Harris. She offers a lively blog and podcast about living well. She is a delight and someone I am happy to call friend.

Janean and I talk about the art of the re-frame.

We are the human interface of how Consciousness knows itself. Our emotions in our experiences provide frameworks of thinking, our boxes of identity and being, our patterns, our reality states. Our emotions help create and shape our experiences and perceptual biases.

The emotion or emotions can make any event a powerful picture of who we are in that moment. Depending on the emotions and the nature of the event those emotional frames can also lock us in and leave us feeling trapped within the picture or pattern.

Re-framing is about taking the human emotional content and connection to your story out and just working with the energy patterns present. It is then possible to then let them unfold into something new or different. Consciousness is free to play and evolve as human.

It is an invitation to be honest with ourselves.  People can really play around with this. We can rationalize and reason in our thinking and that will serve to excuse and justify our reactions and behaviors.

How many times did we know something yet fail to make a change when we know why we are behaving or thinking in certain ways? We are not in a state of change. Going into Heart Centered Awareness makes the difference as it is the state of potential.

Consciousness has no attachment to outcome. So in this reality state there are no human emotions directing. It is easier to hold awareness of the forces at play. 

In case you don't have time to listen to the podcast I have outlined some steps to re-framing what might be holding you in positions or patterns that no longer serve.

 Recognize that you have an issue, a pattern, something not enjoyed or wanted. Denial is a powerful state and not helpful. It helps keep the pattern in place. Or we can be very aware of the pattern and associate it with it never changing. Which is then the state of no change.

Access Heart Centered Awareness, Field of Unified Consciousness. This is neutral territory. This is the field of Grace and potential.  

If the emotional frame is not there what do you notice about your issue? Sometimes there is information or wisdom to be connected to or you might just be in awareness that you don't need the patterns any longer and it can change. Just let the information be present.
If it could be different what would that be like?  Let the open ended question come to mind. Notice what comes to mind and what is feels like when the state of reality has shifted. Feel the difference.

Allow for it to be different. It is important to realize that change and difference can happen that quickly. We can also recreate anything. 

Register the change. You will feel something different or notice something that was not there before. Might be relaxation or your own unique way of knowing change is happening. Don't think something is different, feel it different. You may be able to articulate it or not. Notice that you are not relating to the issue in the same way. 

That is the re-frame.

Consciousness & Fuzzy Photons Playground Groups starting Thursday

How are you doing these days? You are on my mind when I write weekly about what we explore in our Portland based Consciousness groups. I think of you as I send out each and every Consciousness message to those who want to feel connected to something not definable and at basis to all that is.  

 For the last 13 years I have facilitated groups for consciousness exploring. Students of different consciousness technologies, meditation practices, metaphysical disciplines all have gathered here in community. We explore what happens when we hold potential as real and active as it truly is within each of us. We access this as a reality state where change is possible and can be engaged and felt in the moment and we are different, the pattern changed, the issue transformed, our story embodies a new direction. We change our future by being present and allowing our pasts to be only that, the past, not our present, not our future. 

I have written about what happens in those groups. It has also been my absolute joy. The writing has been my offering of support to you. It is my way to help others maintain a connection, to keep fresh this expansive experiencial state. To help go beyond our tired boundaries and labels that religion and spiritual trainings have provided. To release our habituated behaviors of thinking and creating. To take this back to its essence, potential. To help you keep the state real when maybe you have felt remote, or isolated by physical distance to us here and/or mindsets around you. 

Whatever your current relationship to your training or participation, maintaining the state of Potential, Heart Centered Awareness, Field of Unified Consciousness, Zero Point Field, Source or the other words you may call Consciousness, it is Real.  Within the group we revel and deeply, deeply appreciate ourselves as Consciousness expressing. The stillness of not doing, of only noticing, is present. We are always going beyond our perceived limitations or beliefs. In our shared experience we recognize that we truly are One, individuals sharing.

Fuzzy Photons are what we each are made up of deep within our base elements of life. We are clouds of photons of light that dance as a cloud of possibilities. They are fuzzy as their motion. When we focus on one it becomes the only and the pattern is formed, reality is set as perception and bias making up our stories of being. All of which are subject to change when you engage this awareness state as active and use deliberate intent.   

Starting this Thursday March 1: 
Fuzzy Photons Playground Groups
Live, 2hour, interactive meetings
Via Zoom Video Conferencing
Thursday mornings 10am-noon Pacific
Thursday evenings 6pm-8pm Pacific
Group size is 6-10 members committed to a weekly meeting
Price: You decide $10.00, $15.00 or $20.00 per meeting, paid beginning of month

Pre requisite: Familiar with experiencing Heart Centered Awareness, or a one hour preparatory session with Janet.  Price: $200.00/ Sliding Scale if needed.

Utilizing Zoom Video Conferencing, our live, 2 hour interactive group meeting responds to your input and challenges each week.  Zoom’s tools allow for video streaming images of each participant – including a name listing, public and private chat rooms, and breakout rooms which allow for one-on-one play. These interactive tools connect us in a way a webinar, phone call or even Skype does not.

We will start with clearing the patterns and language that keeps us from continuously enjoying and embodying potential. We will focus on accessing new reality states with the patterns challenging us. Consistent play develops awareness and self-confidence, so we meet weekly. The group’s dynamics will keep you enjoying Fuzzy Photon reality again.

What is possible for you and each of us in the field of Potential? What would it be like to feel the warmth, support, non-judgement and appreciation that is Grace? I extend this to you with the Fuzzy Photons Playground Groups.

Consciousness is opportunity oriented and opportunities abound right now collectively for quantum leaps in awareness and delight. Come join us as we leap beyond our own illusions of self.

Email me at to sign up, indicating which playground group time is preferred, and to receive your Playgroup questionnaire, release and payment directions. Also, email me if you have any questions or thoughts to share and please pass this if you know someone who would enjoy our play.

Looking forward to our adventure together,

Consciousness and Reaching Our Tipping Point

Have we had enough yet? Are we at our tipping point? The one that says that we are done with what we have allowed our society to say is okay? Can we still tell the difference in reality television, reality video games and reality? Or have they become the same? Our eyes with mind will not register the difference.

We are okay with the killing of children. The killing of innocence. The killing for sport. OR WE WOULD NOT MAKE IT EASY TO DO with inappropriate behaviors and weapons.

For those reading this i would guess that these statements are not true for us. Yet we are complicit to the killing by our non focus, denial, unsureness to act, questioning of authority, or thinking it is 'okay in some way because it has always been that way' sort of thinking. There can be many reasons for why we allow for the taking of life. We may not have challenged ourselves to be better in order to do better. In order for change we have to own up to that.

This is about what we each think is allowable and to be expected, what we excuse and pardon. Maybe not wanted but that we are powerless to prevent it.  Or we would.

 Armaments and sport killing are about egos and profits. There is no level playing field here with a gun against a child or animal or man no matter the size.This is about the want to take without giving back.

Some societies live in the jungle. But many live this way in our cities. Just look at the kind of movies and video games we are immersed in we call entertainment and our real daily headlines.

It all comes down to priorities. If we valued our children we would make it more important with funding and skilled manpower for organizations and systems to protect them when the need arises. Sometimes it is protection even from ourselves. Maybe we would appropriate profits from our munitions businesses to support those needing protection from them.

We like to assign blame and fault others. It is easy to do. Just watch our elected representatives in Congress. Do they really represent you or powerful agendas and party lines?

Misdirection is a powerful tool that is present in our society today. In the US, especially in conversations about gun control for instance. The NRA lobby is a distraction and excuse. They have become powerful because we allow them to be powerful.

They are supported by individuals in Congress and others who think weapons have a place in society, a powerful life deciding place in society. Weapons do what they are designed to do with the power to harm life. Why are they out in general society? Who allows for money, gain and power as valid reasons to excuse outcomes and misdirect the conversation? We do.  

In American society our 2nd amendment in the Bill of Rights guarantees our right to bear arms to support a public militia. We now have governmental bodies with budgets to fund militias and police now to protect us. It said nothing about protecting a right to murder.

It is always a question of who has them and how they are being used. Considering outcomes to date, this seems sensible but then I am not too much into conspiracy theories and fear of being controlled by others. I don't see it as a loss of freedom to track something that can take my freedom to life away. I am part of this then. Ask any dead victim of gunfire.

I have no problem with those who use a gun to feed their families. Don't let this distract.

We can be held in collective states of sensations and stresses. Like shock. Like shame. Like fear, like love, like compassion. Because energies don't die. They inhabit in patterns of constructs as our myths and stories of identity. They express as the forces in the Cosmos. They form and then can transform into something else or into nothing else.

It is never to late to Wake Up! To shake off the curse, the numbness, the disbelief and the beliefs of being small means powerless. Large does not mean strong or powerful. Both are only references to size.

Is it up to our children to show us the way, to protect themselves? Children are free of some of the burden we can hold as adults. Our so called matured beliefs of being and our place in society. Children will challenge us and the status quo and that is one reason we value them. This is in part due to their innocence, that ability to question all the smallest details around them, report and comment freely on what they see around them without the blinders of some set appropriateness. They don't have the limits that we as adults are invested in.

In doing so they make us stop and think fresh thoughts about ourselves. Free to repeat what they have heard their elders saying lets us hear ourselves. Or they stand free of agenda and belief and just say out loud what the rest of us are too intimidated to say out loud.

Our children in Florida and elsewhere are right now gathering themselves together to challenge us, our norms, our pardons and allowables, to wake us up to our failures. They bring fresh energies and approaches. They challenge insincere platitudes from Congress and admonish even a president who is more childish than them. They are a reflection of their parents who love and support them into believing, into knowing that they make more of a difference in being alive than dead.

When we, the individuals, focus as the collective on what we want as a society only then will change happen.

Have you reached your tipping point yet?
