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.
