Consciousness and Your Day to Day

Do you enjoy your day to day life? What is it filled with? Does it leave you excited for the next day?

What would it be like to look forward to your unique day, and the day after and the day after? 

Sometimes in the humdrum that we might enjoy at times we might lose a sense of excitement about our day and the days that follow. 

Opening ourselves up to the unexpected and variety of all kinds happening in user friendly ways might seem a threat to our finely set sense of control.  

It doesn't have to be. Enjoying expanding rule sets are helpful. 

You know your rule sets. Such as "Oh, I am not the artist, my sister is the artist", " You will never amount to much.The men in our family are always achievers". "Public service will never pay. Greed is good". You can live your day to day life following these rules and fighting with them. All of them come with a hook that rips. None of them are true. 

Rule sets are what we define them to be, the states of awareness that Life is. We are powerful and dynamic in projecting what we think Life is and how it will show up. We base much of our world view and Life on assumptions and acceptance without question. 

Our self identity is filled with stuff that really is not true but we think is. Self image and identity could offer a sense of enrichment or it can be a downward slide, events piling up validating your viewpoints in support. That is how dynamic we are. We manifest our emotions that color our thinking. We create our reality.We share in those realities. 

How to enjoy something different, a different pattern of belief and behavior means one must question the status quo. How to do it is to realize that you are more than what you think and feel you are and our surrounding myths. Start there.

Heart Centered Awareness, the Field of Unified Consciousness is available within. Accessing it, free of your self identity and image loosens the patterns of belief and assumptions that you have made up about being who you are. 

You are a unique self created idea of reality in a body form. Do you realize that? Even conjoined twins are unique to one another. 

But we are One shared state of Heart. We are individually part of the whole. 

Make time and access Heart Centered Awareness. It is right there inside you. Allow yourself to see what your self imposed ideas of Life are. Question what you experience Life as and notice what it would be like if that could be different. Question what seems real and solid and what you never question. 

Let Consciousness interact with your day to day in a more noticeable way. Let your new awareness influence and color your Life. We will all be better for it.

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet

Ep 23 blog   New Rules in the Games People Play

How do you enjoy relating to the men or women in your life?

We would like to feel that we enjoy both men and women. And, for many there may be conditions. 

Are there patterns in the way we deal with the sexes that really are not enriching and keep the negative compounding daily? Are they filled with agendas, grudge match interactions, confusion, missed opportunities, much not said or acknowledged, frustration that you are not being heard? Perhaps fear of safety, lack of respect, impertinence.

You name it you can feel all kinds of things in your sense of connection with the other sex or another individual.

Whatever your dominant state of interaction is with others is, it reflects your inner sense of relation with your male/female directives inside.

We tend to maintain bias in our language. Here, we refer to each as the opposite sex and that might be part of the problem. What if they are not referred to as in distanced from each other but side by side? We need a different word. The abreast sex or the alongside sex doesn’t have the same ring does it? And, maybe we could use the term female/male instead of male/female? It registers energetically different.

Men and women are not the same, but they go together as part of the human design. They are complementary dynamics that can sometime seem contrary. One is not better than the other. Like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that are different and they fit together interlocking. 
They go together. Their differences work together to create and complete connection and unity. 

Our powers are equal and complementary though we think them not, when we think in terms of strong, weak, etc. Yes, one may be physically stronger with testosterone, but can you really say a woman in childbirth is not as strong with her estrogen pumping? There are just differences in demonstration of what is possible. We are talking apples and oranges. Both fruit. One not better than the other.  

We need some new rules in appreciating the differences between men and women that shifts our game of life and play. We need to appreciate strength and wisdom of all kinds that our sexual identities, ruled by our hormones provide us. 

We need to get out of the Blame Game and start playing the NO Blame Game. 

Compassion, Appreciation, Respect. These are the rules we want to align ourselves in.

We need to let go of the past and start, in this moment, to change how we relate. Maybe we need “Men are from Mars and Women love them” or “Women are from Venus and Men love them” as a better alignment of what is possible and the natural order. Unity, Oneness is the natural state of Being. There is only the One in Being for each of us and collectively.

How to get rid of the State of Victim/Abuser, which is the Blame Game?

One dominant rule in the Blame Game is the State of Forgiveness. 

Forgiveness is the quality that someone else has done us wrong, they have hurt us. There is an imbalance that creates a need for justice, fairness. It is a deliberate choice to release feeling of resentment or vengeance towards others regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness. Forgiveness does not mean forgetting, nor does it mean condoning or excusing offenses.

There are many considerations that are mentioned in that definition. All from our sense of Self which is usually invested in right and wrong.

From within Consciousness and Oneness, our position about Forgiveness is different. Any reaction to stimuli is mine. I can feel physical hurt, mental hurt, emotional hurt. I can acknowledge pain and it can move me to the next place, the next moment. We are each responsible for creating the experience. We are each responsible for what comes next.

If we are in a pattern or patterns of being hurt without resolution the hurts pile up and we get into the game of blame /forgiveness. Someone else has done me wrong. Victim thinking manifests. And some will say they forgive but they don’t forget. And that keeps it all in play. Only with forgetting does one cease the need to forgive.
What would it be like to let go of the need and energy of Forgiveness?

Access heart Centered Awareness and let your awareness of how you deal with the men and women in your life reflect how you feel inside about your inner world. Then pick someone who comes to mind and use the Hawaiian Ho’oponopono prayer towards them.

I am sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you. (for being in my life to help me to know wholeness).

I love you.

Take it in as you recite the words. Let them sink in. Recite it as many times until you feel different.

Then notice what it would be like if the other says it to you! Allow yourself to feel different. Allow yourself to let go what felt stuck emotionally. And Breathe. Breathe through your heart. Feel the shared heart.

Consciiousness and the State of Your Heart

How is your heart doing these days?

The Field of the Heart is made up of three distinctions. We have our physical heart, our emotional heart and our core essence when we talk Heart. They work together in harmony, keeping balance, always.

When issues appear in one distinction it is reflecting in the other two.Since the heart is the first organ to develop in the embryo the circulation and communication it provides is everywhere. It is the physical manifestation of Being. So if you have a pain, whether it is physical, or emotional or at our essence level as our connection to Consciousness, you will be relaying the information to the whole body and mind field. The same goes for Joy. And any emotion.

On the electrical and magnetic level of awareness you are also accessing and affecting those around you and across the world if you tune in. Also the time and space is malleable so you are resonating in both past and future realities. There is a lot out there that is an extension of Essence affecting your current physical form.

I am, among other things, a clearing house energy. Perhaps you are too.  You may feel in some sensory data input those "others".

I heard, years ago when I was first time in a Matrix Energetics seminar, the Voice. You know the one I mean, the internal one who has been in there for years. It said, as I was being present, "What is it like to be a toxic waste dump? And down the rabbit hole I went. I knew I was in for a bumpy sliding ride.

I would later come to realize that being a toxic waste dump is a very dynamic place to be. It did not have to be the horrible thing death sentence I had been projecting it to be. Where does humanity release their toxic thoughts and emotional states? How do we get rid of the garbage? We certainly are happy to share with others.

Certainly Western societies can generate massive amounts of physical waste. Most of which they dump someplace and expect it to be all okay. Blindly. For it can take thousands of years before decomposition starts to take place. What about the energy of emotions and thinking? It can leave an energetic impression on the generations that follow, on their objects and the ground they walk.

Now, nobody likes to think that this is their relation with others on this planet. But facts are facts! This is the reality I have created. So how to make it work, how to enjoy life, how to find the value in life with such a gift has been my Journey of Enlightenment. It was not a surrender. It was a coming into alignment with my unique gifts and a win/win.

You upgrade the machinery you provide service with and give back what others need in order to become who they can become. I don't judge the shit. I don't judge the creator of such. You are a Bridge of Transcendence. It is a capability we all have and most don't hold in awareness.

There are ebbs and flows in how one might experience being alive and what meaning one's life has. Along the way you will feel and fall into patterns of thinking and behaviors. Some you will enjoy and some you will resist, some you will deny. Those that you resist and deny will stay with you until you quit resisting the information as you think you know it to be and let it reveal itself as your hidden truth and treasured awareness. .

We have been in a collective uproar for a long time in our humanity. We are all learning how to be Spirit in a human form with Love and Grace and a sense of Oneness for as long as there has been an awareness that it is helpful to think and live this way. It has come and gone many times in civilization and still it is there.

How is your heart doing? Take a moment or two and notice. Access Heart Centered Awareness and just listen and feel what is present. Breathe through your heart. Notice your garbage. What do you do with it? Do you judge it? Recycle what you can, go through it looking for missed treasures or let the bacteria and microscopic life forms that are designed to break it down be present? Let nature do it's thing with supplying the means to deal with what you have created. Leave the world a better place, cleaner than you found it. Sweep up your emotional excesses and free the energy into potential again.

Let yourself breathe and feel your heart beat.

JIE Episode 22 Blog/ I N T I M A C Y

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast

What constitutes intimacy? Picture a baby snuggling to its mother’s breast. Picture father holding the baby, inhaling the baby’s scent. We are designed to be intimate. 

We use the word intimate in a sexual context or to describe a moment between two that share a sense of closeness or maybe space in a restaurant. I am sure other situations come to mind. Intimacy is possible anywhere and everywhere one person meets another energy be it human or some other form.   

We have all probably experienced how you can be physically intimate with another but not mentally, emotionally, psychically or spiritually intimate at the same time.  You can feel disconnections clearly that can create separateness.  And it can be uncomfortable when one is inclined to being intimate and the other is not. 

What is it like for someone to know us, our secrets, our dreams, to “get” who we truly are on a personal level? For them to love us warts and all, to put us first?  Sounds nice. How often we offer it and experience it is another thing.

What is it like to be open with another, accepting? The opportunity is there. Especially in heart centered awareness, the field of Unified Consciousness. It happens all the time in the various consciousness technologies groups I have offered the last fifteen years.  

In a state of Oneness there is no difference between each other at heart. We are all sharing the core of Consciousness. It can feel like love and it may be. It is witnessing each other in their truth and bringing out their best with warmth, support and non-judgment. And each person’s truth is simple. Each of us is Wonder in action

Many may shy away, or reject, or joke their discomfort with being seen in their truth, beyond their veils of social barriers and behaviors. Even when it is what is wanted.

What happens when it comes to the inner male/female directives or Divine dynamics?

If it is two dynamics locked up together and having different agendas life is not so much fun. Taking out the adversarial energy of our relating to one another goes a very long way to creating intimacy and what manifests out into our shared realities. The tension is thick out here around us and it is coming from within us. Adversarial energy makes for great theatre and sagas. It is also all illusion and presentation, performance art.  

Essence forms here to explore what happens when one is in form, the body. This is the physical realm of contrast and that contrast can manifest in the male/female directives. Part of our Journey of Enlightenment may be the development of the state of unity that the body can represent and foster.  

We can hold the viewpoint that our male and female are prisoners sharing a cell or. OR, we can shift in our perspective and realize that each is essential to the other and celebrate what is possible in being present with each other. I didn’t say work together. I didn’t say play together. It is about just recognizing the other as the matching expression. We lose our sense of separateness. Then our inner energies merge as a dance of movement sharing Life’s moments.

There is no work. It is not about labor. It is about natural dynamics free of human definitions. Take out all the competition and thinking in terms of differences between the two and you have intimacy.

Realizing that we are intimate with Mother Earth and her inhabitants of flora and fauna every time we go out our front door might be a new thought. It is a given we may take for granted. Hugging a tree, throwing a frisbee with your dog, petting your cat, digging for fossils are all examples of being intimate with our world. We are intimate with the air that we breathe.

We each have our stories of being alive, being human, being spirit. When we embrace the individual over the Collective, we are embracing the individual out of the Collective. There is always the Collective. There is always Consciousness, the sharing of the One. One heart. Not one mind but one heart.

This is intimacy.
