Me on Quora on Synchronicity

(Original post here)

Q: Is there a better explanation for extraordinary synchronicities, and prophetic dreams, than Carl Jung’s collective unconscious?

A: While not omniscient or having read all there is to read on the subject, here is my favorite explaination.

The short simple answer – It’s all vibration, baby. Understand that, and you understand prophetic dreams and synchronicity. It’s all very simple.

Here’s what I mean. (Hang in there, this explanation goes from mainstream to advanced very quickly, one step at a time. Wait for it!)

Science, as we know it, often looks at ‘reality’ by dissecting the whole, reducing the variables, using microscopes, and separating the parts. It’s very left-brained. In this myopic way, science (i.e.: the mainstream) finds consciousness (and phenomena like prophetic dreams or synchronicity) elusive and difficult to understand, although quantum mechanics finds interesting phenomena.

All that we actually know we know, is that vibration happens. “I Think, therefore I Am.” Thoughts are vibrational phenomena. Light is vibration in radiant friction. Sound, waves, all vibrational phenomena.

We accept descriptions of ‘reality’ at our scale of observation, but nothing we conventionally think of as ‘reality’ is actually ‘real’.

Atoms are not solid, they are merely coherent patterns of vibration and spin dynamics. Electrons don’t “exist” as permanent phenomena, they blink in and out of existence continually. The electromagnetic phenomena that move our muscles are merely vibrational phenomena.

Cymatics is a newer science that investigates the emergent property of vibrational dynamics interacting on clumps of activity that we call “matter”. Put the right material in a cymatic field, and it looks like Nature. Extraordinary patterns emerge in response to specific frequencies. Movement happens, as if the material “comes to life”.

Rogue waves are another example of emergent phenomena that are only explainable by looking at the interaction of the system experiencing vibratory dynamics.

Developmentally, mainstream western science has yet to master system-thinking.

Those who do seem to understand the nature of Nature best, also look at the larger context of phenomena. They explore “knowledge” beyond the limits of the 5 senses – Gnosis. This is the realm of the right-brain, the spiritually-minded. Jung, I believed, did so well because he rationalized and formalized gnosis that he was exposed to as he experienced Hermeticism, Gnosticism, Kabbalah and other right-brained schools that looked at the whole, rather than only looking at the individual parts like a microscope would.

The Buddhist “Indra’s Net” is one example of humans attempting to describe the larger systemic context in action. The Taoists call it “The Way”. I call it the Fabric of Great Order.

Walter Russell, a scientist credited with ‘discovering’ several elements on the periodic table before mainstream science knew what to look for, was a master of understanding vibrational dynamics. He called it “Mind” (as in, the mind of All). Ian Anderson in the Jethro Tull song, “Skating Away (On The Thin Ice of a New Day)” calls it the Universal Mind.

When we experience Universal Mind, time is simultaneous, not linear. All information is expressed (and available for access) in each and every quantum location. These are also conversations shared among physicists.

If time is simultaneous, all exists Now, past, present, future are all “knowable” in the Now. Tesla said he learned what he learned by tapping into this field. (So have many other ‘scientists’.) Some call this “the Akashic Records”.

If time is simultaneous, we can access a ‘memory’ of ‘future’ events, thus predictive dreams have an obvious place in Nature.

In the trans-egoic state of sleep, in the DMT surge at 4am in the Theta and Delta frequency, we can “tune in” to and access states of awareness not available to the daytime Beta-wave brain.

Who is the observer of the Memory? When you say You are observing your thoughts – who is the You that owns your thoughts? Are you experienced in the Self that you Are beyond the egoic, personal self? Another science that discusses this “woo woo” stuff is called Transpersonal Psychology, and it substantiates and proves (in empirical ways) transpersonal phenomena. See also, the Heart Math Institute.

If we step back and perceive, experientially, the nature of Nature, there is a rich tapestry of vibrational dynamics intersecting, dancing, weaving coherent structures, like rogue waves, and re-dividing all structures back into the Universal Mind of All.

If we learn to listen beyond our ears and see beyond our eyes, we can ‘tune in’ to an entire experience (and intelligences) beyond the 5 senses, get in “Flow” with Nature, and see (as the Taoists teach) that our spiritual development can transcend the first 6 levels of Monkey Ego and Sage Ego.

In these latter 6 stages of spiritual development (ex: in stage 9), we see clearly the Way the vibrational Mind of Nature rises to meet us (the “synchronicity” that we could glimpse, but not understand, in stages 1-8). Some call this Alchemy.

When Nature – like a Holographic Mirror reflecting just the right bit of Universal Mind back to us in the shape that our personal development is ready to see – when Nature rises to meet us, we experience “synchronicity”.

For more about the stages of spiritual development and the nature of Nature as described by the Taoists, you can read “Dragon’s Play”, by Charles Belyea and Steven Tainer.

Recap:

It’s all vibration.

Take the red pill, Neo, and your consciousness will experience much that lies beyond the myopic mainstream western experience. (That’s a Matrix reference, for those not in the know.)

Time is simultaneous. Only at our spiritually young, egoic scale of observation does it look linear. Of course the Greater Spark of Mind within a human can experience “predictive dreams”. It’s all Now. And it’s all available to our consciousness Now, if we tune in properly.

Synchronicity is The Way of Nature. Mind resonates. The system of our unique frequency interacts with the frequency of the greater Whole, and reflects back to us in equal measure to our personal shape and level of development. When we understand it, we call it The Tao or Indra’s Net or Great Order. When we don’t, we say, “Woah, that was quite a synchronicity.”

Hope this helps ūüėČ Cheers!

Oh Rocky!

I’ve just seen Tim Curry in Rocky Horror for the first time, and spent days basking in the companionship of the Gnostic, Kabbalistic, Hermetic esoteric¬†message. I too remember doing the time warp into this rocky horror science fiction show for the thrills! And just recently, after years of wanting to return to the Trans-sexual, I saw blue skies through my tears, and decided I might actually like to stay. If you experienced this transmission from the movie too, let’s talk!

Big Changes – an Update

Hi ūüôā ¬†How are you?

Well, I’ve not posted in a long time, and there was a gap between my last post and the ones prior.

In short, there are big changes afoot, and nothing has seemed post-worthy to me in a long time.

What changed?  Why, thank you for asking!

In short (again?), I spent 20 years of my life trying to contribute to the evolution of consciousness. ¬†“Let’s change the world for the better!” said my eternally optimistic idealist.

Then something shifted in me.

I realized that Great Order revels in Experience, and in that, All colors of the rainbow are going to manifest and express themselves.  Trying to change the world is like trying to force the whole rainbow to get yellow instead of being what it is.

Suddenly, there’s nowhere to go. ¬†Nothing needs to be ‘fixed’ or ‘changed’. ¬†Evolution Is. ¬†Great Order, Is.

“What about dying babies and mass murderers,” you ask, aghast? ¬†Sure. ¬†What about Corporate abuses of power, Political corruption, human corruption for that matter? ¬†What about Nibiru and the coming Ice Age and devastating freak weather threatening our crops, our food production and our very survival? ¬†What about that awful Rap music?!!

*sigh* ¬†Do what you need to do, until you can’t do it anymore. ¬†If you need to resist gays, or Republicans, or Liberals, or fear of death or whatever, then you¬†haven’t yet learned that what you resist persists. ¬†That’s ok. ¬†Keep doing what you need to do until you can’t do it anymore.

Me, I’ve realized that the Face of Love (God, Source, Emergence) has universal core values under every Creation, and I’m more interested in seeing how Emergence chooses to Express Herself/Myself and to grok the underlying core value (and support That, which obsoletes distorted expressions) than to push against things in the ever re-cycling “revolution” attitude where the oppressed become the new oppressors.

Yes, it’s true that not all of Creation is Life Serving. ¬†Yes, it’s true that I still tend toward Life Serving choices for the most part.

But I also see that nothing is universally “right” or “wrong” – even water can kill you in certain contexts. ¬†I do what I can to interrupt¬†“should-ing on” myself or others, and¬†look instead to support the Core Values. ¬†In those Expressions of Self I see only Love. ¬†Sometimes, Life makes Love¬†As War. ¬†It just Is.

So instead of should-ing or pushing against it, I now see all of Great Order in terms of Her vibrationally opposing sine waves, antinodes and nodal points.  Nothing is fixed, everything is in motion, evolving, being magnitized toward its resolution (nodal point) or into more vivid Autonomy and Experiencing and Self-Expression and Uniqueness (anti-nodes).

We don’t have to push the river to get it to bend a certain way – the river will find her own resolution.

Does that mean I sit on the couch all day and eat BonBons? ¬†No, I knit. ¬†Ha just kidding. ¬†No, I’m not advocating non-action. ¬†Chop Wood / Carry Water still applies. ¬†My 3D aspect still earns income to direct 3rd Dimensional energy as I wish. ¬†I still actively engage¬†my 4th Dimensional and Long Body growth / evolution. ¬†I still act, when needed, in protective use of force if that is called for. ¬†If I’m cornered I still pull out Kali to Kick Ass. ¬†I still create when I am moved to create.

However, I¬†also¬†don’t add to the ambient noise of human activity just because my immature shadow-aspects have a knee-jerk reaction to spit forth. ¬†I’m more aware of the ambient field, the scattered noise, the distortions, and the reality¬†that all Expressions are inherently full of Distortion (points away from the nodal point, looking for resolution).

So now my choices are coming out of a different Being.

Thank goodness. ¬†It’s way less stressful here.

And if this doesn’t make sense to you, that’s ok.

So yeah. That’s where I’m at.

Bits and Mini-Rants

– The body is made up of communities upon communities of intelligences. ¬†A man, having had heart surgery, suffers a (very well-documented) 2-week depression. ¬†He’s convinced it’s not “his depression” emotionally, but that it’s his body’s depression, his body’s emotional response to the damage. ¬†Another example: we’re now learning that one of the most useful acids in the intestine, butyric acid, is a by-product of certain intestinal flora. ¬†Feed that community properly and you lose weight and lose inflammation. ¬†Treat that community badly and you gain weight and suffer a host of intestine-related diseases and byproducts, including heart disease. ¬†If you suppress cravings for food or an activity, you damage your relationship with the host of communities that are your bodily system, and you will pay a price for that unkindness. ¬†Matt (Eat For Heat) encourages honoring cravings and avoiding the stress-response that comes from ignoring cravings. ¬†When I think about the perspective that the body has a host of communities attempting to communicate with us, I think it’s criminal¬†how mechanized we make the body, perceiving it as an object to be ignored and driven like an obedient slave while ignoring its natural (and subtle) forms of communication.

– Many in the integral community prefer the ascended path over anything descending. ¬†Rob McNamara says “authentic relating betrays us” because it takes us away from the ascension path. ¬†I think that’s crap. ¬†It’s a beautiful singular permutation of perspective, which I value, but I also think it’s crap if it’s pretending to be Integral Wisdom. ¬†Great Order is made up of both paths, and there’s nothing to resist. ¬†In fact, I experience very vividly how the descending path is a direct path to God, as much as ascending into meditation, witnessing and observation are a path to God. ¬†When we become masters of relating to our own feelings and needs, we begin to discover the expression of the Face of God that is the unique manifestation that is the self. ¬†We find the cell in the body of Creation that we are. ¬†But if you can’t identify your own feelings and needs and attend to them, how can you ever learn to discern which sets of feelings/needs are actually a face of the Divine, and which ones are actually residue pleading for resolution and release? ¬†More, what you can’t do yourself you can’t do with others – anyone who can’t relate masterfully to their own feelings/needs and inner community can’t possibly relate with compassion to someone else’s feelings and needs. ¬†Anyone who can’t navigate attending to a plurality of needs on the table can’t possibly negotiate living with the plurality of simultaneous needs that is natural in a relationship, and more so in an intimate relationship. ¬†As a woman, I have experienced God many times in profound intimate Communion with Lover, which isn’t possible with someone who is hungrily escaping into ascension or devoid of the presence that comes with personal intimacy with¬†the emotional (subtle and physical) aspects of inner community. ¬†Descending is as valuable as Ascending – they are both parts of Great Order and Both are paths to God‚Ķand both are part of the infinite cycle of One Voice that is Involution and Evolution.

Your Unique Face of Spirit

Distortions and Faces of Love

(pre-requisites – needs consciousness, griefwork and releasework, aptitude to discern resolution vs residue, aptitude to discern strategies and core values)

Love – Needs

Attending to underlying needs is a path to reveal the true Face of Spirit.

(Not “meeting” the needs – Attending to them. Paying attention. Being with them.)

God is in the asshole; the needs are the face of One’s Divinity.

The needs are the path to the Face of Spirit.
Not the needs that are rooted in unresolved residue Рthose are distortions. Attend to them long enough, without diversion, and the residue will release and resolve.

The needs are the path to the Face of Spirit.
Not the needs that are unconsciously a means for other needs. I learned to contribute and be accomplishing and effective; unbeknownst to me that was a means FOR my needs for belonging and security. The “sin” (off center, off Truth) of expressing the accomplishing and effectiveness nearly killed me. The authentic expression of the yearning for belonging and security is, in this case, universal and Holy.

Attending to needs is the decendant path to freedom.

Decendant path to freedom

Residing with the need – attending to the need
sitting on the curb with it
that is Love’s expression

With Love’s expression, the need evaporates
there’s a fractional ego-death
and we become a more accurate expression of the Face of Love
we become No One (without ego)

Attending to the needs is a fractional form of re-membering

(We are not human beings having a spiritual awakening.  We are spiritual beings having a human awakening.)

And with a daily practice of fractional remembering,
the ego purifies;
This is spiritual hygiene.

When all is said and done, you will walk on water too.

Rules For Relating

My 20s and 30s were all about ruling people in or out of my life. I had very overt, and very subtle, ways I would do that. ¬†Now, I’m learning I want different – I want to live in practicing, “How do we find each other (again)”?

Alternative to “Bad Shadow Government Illuminati” Narrative

I have lots of friends campaigning against “shadow government” or against “the Illuminati” or against “the reptilians” or “the bankers” or “the powers that be”.

I am very educated to these narratives. I get it. And –

I would like to propose a more generative perspective.

After human beings were created, a point came where we were provided the space to be “self-governing” (self, meaning, “the local human population governing itself”).

Of course, at that time not all individuals were prepared – or psychologically equipped – for this task. Some people have longer cognitive lines than others. Some people have more agentic inclinations than others. So, necessarily, a small number of the “locals” took control, and started a not-so-complex chess game of politics, governing behind the scenes, currency and currency manipulations, etc… The masses, for centuries, have been the pieces on this chess board, moved by debt obligations, moved by fear and threats, moved by political maneuvering and moved by spin.

However, necessarily, we are now reaching a time in human history and human development where more and more of the chess pieces (the humans on the planet) are waking up, seeing the larger context of the chess board, and saying, “Wait a minute Chess Players – You’re not the boss of me!” More and more of us are growing up and emotionally maturing enough to learn that we (the masses) can govern ourselves.

As a human race, true “self governance” is not about a small group controlling the rest. True “self governance” is about each one of us, each individual, waking up to be able to govern ourselves.

Part of that is learning how to do “power with” instead of “power over”. The chess players did “power over” the rest. The people collaborating in open-source projects, collaborating on the Internet, and collaborating on crowd-sourcing, community resiliency, restorative justice and permaculture are all people embodying their learning how to do “power with”.

People doing “power with” realize that we are interconnected, and only going to thrive when we work together with each other and with the system as a whole. People who do “power over” think of themselves as separate, and everyone else and everything else as Enemy to be conquered and controlled.

History is teaching us that Power Over is a tragic strategy that falls apart in the long run. Power With allows us to adaptively generate solution on-the-fly – dynamic steering.

While we embody “us/them” villanization – when we push against a government figure, or a batch of “Illuminati”, or against a batch of “reptilians”, we continue to perpetuate the pawn mentality by playing into the victim triangle. The oppressed rise to become the new oppressors.

Only when we stand in our own sovereignty – and educate ourselves – can we evolve to our fullest capacity and our birth right – fully actualizing our capacities.

Standing in our sovereignty, for me, isn’t about pushing against the old structures. For me, the sovereign is visibile in us when we come together to create new systems that render the old systems obsolete – effortlessly and naturally.

So while I appreciate the attempt to “educate” that innocently moves people to villanize our government or our history or our shadow government or our ancient ancestors, I don’t subscribe to the villanizing, us/them behaviors.

I want to live more emotionally mature, more grown-up, and more productive than that.

Rather, I recognize that we are capable of waking each other up to our true capacities by moving forward into new structures.

That is who I am. I am a culture creator. I am a stand for the new structures. I am a creative being interested in contributing to the new systems (which will naturally and effortlessly obsolete the old).

So I propose that we put our energies into the Now and the Future and create the self-governing, system-awake, wholistic structures and environments that we want. This is a far, far more productive use of our energies than rehearsing the hatred of the old systems we are pushing against.

In hopes of inspiring your generative action to create forward,
Maya
