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!

Current Puppetry

For what it’s worth, and with great vulnerability, here’s a node of¬†my current bodymind puppetry. ¬†I’m posting this as a fishing expedition, because I’m feeling quite truly at my wits’ end. ¬†What do you think? ¬†Email me privately please. ¬†Mayagayam at gmail.

Once upon a time, the strategy was to land myself within a “co-created community of gnostic / priesty peers” – and if I couldn’t find it I tried to create it around me. But travelling the world I didn’t find it; my current¬†energy levels limit¬†most travel. Then I learned that to make community is too slow and too much wrestling – far more work than I want to manage, and takes far more directing / driving than I enjoy.

What was that strategy attempting to feed, anyway? This question¬†brings me to this –

I am still dealing with this existential crisis – what do I do with the body to:
– care for my needs for belonging
– care for my needs for purpose (which would give me clarity and direction)
– provide for my needs for care, comfort and security for the body
– care for my needs for touch, sexual expression, and companionship
– care for my needs for community where I feel seen and wanted, met and appreciated, loved and desired
– care for my need to exercise the feminine and the capacities and the mystic and the I Am of me, in tandem with the body
– care for my needs for engagement and joy in my gnostic-heartful-sexy-playful-intelligent-tipheret ways and beyond
– all within a context of fluidity, ease, restfulness, balance and in integrity with myself
?

The answer to this would answer other questions like, “what do I choose¬†relative to¬†the other puppets I meet along the way?”

?

And, I’m aware that this is all fundamentally nothing more than puppet talk. I remember the conversation asking me to come here. ¬†Who sent me here to begin with and why?

— update, end of March —

Well in the absence of human response to this post, nonetheless the Guardians Guide. ¬†I find the answer is in the question itself. ¬†I read “Dragon’s Play” section 9, and I feel mySelf again. ¬†Thank you all for reading.

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!

Ouroboros Wheeeeeeee!

Me, two days ago, when I suddenly realized my en”light”enment practices and meditations and yogic practices (calling divine light into the body’s center channel) — were all toward me returning to residing as the state of consciousness (Ain) that existed before Creation (Ain Soph Aur and the The tree of life) – The state before creation was the Unity Plenum, the Darkness! (and God said let there be light). Which means that the light of life strives to return again to its origin of unity consciousness which was darkness‚Ķ and the darkness seeks the companionship of other and duality and love and attraction and creation and life‚Ķ From here – The Darkness is the ultimate beauty and wholeness, not evil, and the Light is the seductive temptress Aphrodite luring us into the flawed incomplete illusion (the naughty wench). ¬†Kether and Source as The Light Bringer (Lucifer). Suddenly the previous bad is the new good, and the old good is the new bad, until they spin in on each other and it’s all good and beautiful, and it’s all heartbreaking…The snake eating its tail‚Ķ and suddenly I’m not in such a rush to escape “the prison” – What’s the rush? Wheeeeeeeeee!!

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.

Love vs/ Fear? Mis-transmission

During a meditation something came clear that I want to share, so I’m writing this post. ¬†Here’s the “punchline”, but after sharing it I will share the context with you as well.

Blessings and Happy New Year,
Maya

We’re always doing Love/Loss/Transition. ¬†Inhale/Exhale. ¬†Fear is simply the withholding from participation in this trinity. ¬†The “Love/Fear” duality is simply a tragic mis-transmission that only perpetuates more fear.

Having once been an avid student of David Deida’s, and a devoted colleague previously intimately connected with Ken Wilber, I have experience with the concept that we are either always “doing Love or doing Fear”.

Certainly this is a compelling idea. ¬†Either we’re opening our heart to Life or we are shutting down in resistance, avoidance and contraction. This concept helped me to analyze my life, my intentions and my actions in a new light, as my spiritual perfectionist was determined to “do more love”.

However, I now realize that in the Great Order of Nature and Vibrational Dynamics, the Love/Fear duality simply isn’t true. ¬†It’s not that we’re doing either Love or Fear. ¬†In the Nature of Nature, in the vibrational dynamics and spiral pendulum of polarity play, we can only be Breathing. ¬†In / Out. ¬†That means that – we aren’t always doing Love/Fear. Rather, we are always doing either Love, Loss or Transition.

Love is like the inhale of breath.  Loss is like the exhale of breath.  The transitions happen at the top and bottom of each inhale or exhale.  Inhale (Love), transition, Exhale (Loss), transition.

So then what is fear?  Fear is like when we hold our breath Рa kind of rigidity Рa kind of temporary non-participation with Nature.  Fear is a temporary withholding from participation in the Love/Loss/Transition trinity.

Feel into it for yourself.  When I feel into this concept Рthe trinity of Love/Loss/Transition Рmy body softens.  When I feel into the duality of Love/Fear, my body stiffens.

Why?

As I reflect on life as the duality of Doing Love or Doing Fear Рthis itself perpetuates the fear of fear.  It sides with Love and pushes against Fear.  This in itself is a rigidity, a dis-integration.

In me, the Love/Fear duality mis-transmission, disconnected from Nature, perpetuates more fear (“Uh oh am I doing fear?!”), perpetuates more “should” thinking (“You should be doing Love, not doing Fear.”), perpetuates more judgment (“I’m doing fear, oh no I’m bad.”) and more separation from the Truth of Nature. No wonder the body stiffens.

More importantly, in an alchemical world embedded in a holographic universe, where thoughts are things, where science recognizes “spooky action at a distance” and where belief serves to generate reality, the belief in a Love/Fear duality only echoes and creates more separation from the power of Nature’s Breath.

Worse, the consideration of Love/Fear took me into my Manager Mind, and out of my core-listening to my own heart and body.

For me, when I feel into the trinity of Nature that is Love/Loss/Transition, suddenly my body relaxes.  Why?

From the trinity of Love/Loss/Transition, Loss is a temporary swing of the pendulum.  The inner child suddenly relaxes, seeing where loss is a natural part of Nature.  Suddenly many topics become less worthy of panic or avoidance.  Lost love, change, and even death reveal themselves as natural parts of a cycle of Life.  My breath deepens, lengthens, and again I feel participation with the current of Nature.

This trinity is also a guide. ¬†When I feel myself holding my breath (feeling fear), there’s nothing to do but Breathe. ¬†Love, Loss, Transition. ¬†Afraid of the unknown? I guarantee it’ll be made up of only 3 things: Love, Loss and Transition. ¬†Easy.

So here again is the note I wrote in my journal – I hope it serves you as much as it is serving me:

We’re always doing Love/Loss/Transition. ¬†Inhale/Exhale. ¬†Fear is simply the withholding from participation in this trinity. ¬†The “Love/Fear” duality is simply a tragic mis-transmission that only perpetuates more fear.
