BLOG FOR THE SOUL
Welcome new Basic students who graduated on January 19th! It’s great to have you as part of the Theta world as we all expand into unknown (and sometimes known) possibilities.
In just entering February, we passed through a Black moon (second new ‘dark’ moon January), the start of the Year of the Wood Horse or Magical horse, unicorn (moving full speed ahead after shedding all our snake skin… the Chinese or Tibetan calendar say March 2nd though) and the end of the Venus retrograde, which all happened yesterday, the 31st. So now we move into a Mercury retrograde on the 6th to the 28th (we are in the shadow of it now). We can handle this wisely if we approach it with a patient and flexible attitude rather than apprehension. Just remember not to sign contracts, be mindful of your expressions as there are many miscommunications, and have your mechanical/technological projects and computer in good shape. Possible breakdowns are such a great time for re-thinking about our life and re-organizing aspects of it so that we see the overview in restructuring when the retrograde is complete. The day after Mercury goes direct, Mars goes retrograde between March 1 and May 20. But I’ll talk about that more next month.
February is also seen as the month of love since it’s Valentine’s day. It’s interesting that the history of this day was actually around a death and sacrifice. A priest, Valentine, who served Roman ruler, Claudius II, flouted the ban to not marry young men and performed marriages in secret. The ban was set in place so men were available to fight a war that the king wanted. As the story goes, Valentine was discovered in his disobedience and defiance, and while in jail, he was befriended by the jailer’s daughter whom he left a farewell note and signed it, "From Your Valentine". Valentine was executed in February 14th, 269 AD.
Seems that love and death have often run themes together…like the many tragic and legendary stories that are acted in theaters and movies all through the ages and all over the world--Romeo and Juliette, Tristan and Isolde, Dido and Aeneas, Antony and Cleopatra, Sir Lancelot and Queen Guinevere, Odysseus and Penelope. The themes of unrequited love often make the heart sad but motivating us to endure, with beliefs that love is worth sacrificing or waiting for. These linger strongly in the unconscious/subconscious collective mind.
So what is love to you? I was at a relationship course where the speaker said that he doesn’t believe that unconditional love exists on this realm in relationships. Hmmm. Ok, I get that in relationships, for them to be healthy, there needs to be boundaries with others, and boundaries seem limiting. Unconditional love isn’t limiting by any means.
We know that there are many versions of what we were told Love was as children. Most of these definitions were in relation to others in how they identified and demonstrated their perceptions of love as an action towards us. So our basis for Love was built on something outside of our self that may or may not have been fully available. Again, it was viewed as a verb, someone was ‘doing’ it and that’s how we learned about Love.
There is also the 'feeling' of Love...something that stirs in the heart, envelopes us and then moves outward. In the study of HeartMath, their philosophy is that the heart, both physically and metaphorically, is the key to tapping into an intelligence that can provide us with fulfillment. They have proved that the heart communicates with the body and brain on different levels. The heart sends energy in the form of blood pressure waves, changing biochemical levels and electromagnetical energy.
In ThetaHealing, we learn that Electrical energy of brain waves has a direct connection to Psychic Senses and Chakras where our consciousness moves through them in our meditation to remember our connection with All that IS. Yet, we forget that we are already connected to this energy. I’ve mentioned many times during classes that beliefs around our so-called separation from Creator make up 98% of the patterns we are digging on. Keep in mind that Creator is not separate from Unconditional Love. IT IS Unconditional Love, totally pure. The 7th Plane IS Unconditional Love, and IT runs through all Planes of Existence (for the Basic students, this becomes more clear in the Advanced course). It is not just in our heart, but in all our cells.
During this present lifetime, our parents might have been viewed as authority figures when we were children, which corresponded to God as some judgmental figure in our little minds … so we have separation beliefs if our parents didn’t treat us well. Then we have our ancestors dumping their beliefs on us around their perceptions, hardships, struggles, or feelings of lack of connection to the Energy that Runs Through Everything. Geesh, can the gap get bigger?
Yes, it can. We have the history level in what we pick up from group consciousness, the land, the deep genetics and our multi-dimensional/simultaneous/past life experiences, searching for that Source that seems to need a ladder to be reached, hidden in the heavens, unavailable or alludes us when IT’s most needed. And though our Soul remembers LOVE, it still has beliefs in this 3rd Plane of Existence that covers over its full awareness of Love.
Then there comes a point where how we define Love, from an outer perspective, has an opportunity to shift back to us. The definition has to let go for what IT really IS to be experienced. And here’s the clincher…We are or were so often busy searching to discover LOVE outside ourselves that we forget that WE ARE LOVE. Whoops! That might not read well as a novel..."Love From The Start and No Ending." I wonder if our minds would get bored. I wonder if our human ego minds needed something that had more pizaaz. Drama will do that….discovering all the angles of experiences to give it ‘aliveness.’ My thoughts wonder if we might have added Love with struggle, Love with betrayal, Love with sacrifice, Love with martyrdom, Love with control to kind of give the full color spectrum and vibrancy to something that didn’t feel fulfilling just by itself. Why wear all white when you can wear a black sparkley, lamee gown with triangles and a peacock headress?
Hmmm. Then I remember that Unconditional Love has all the colors, IT’s everything…Wow…wherever the imagination goes and beyond, IT still is, was and will be!
Our minds at the ego level ‘experiences’ this word, feeling and state of being-Love-with so many complications.…moreso as a verb of action or feeling instead of a place of just being.
Yes, there is a somatic experience in our body at the heart as mentioned. But again everyone of our cells is composed of the sub-atomic proton and neutrons that are All That IS, which is pure Unconditional Love. What if we fully felt this 24/7 and lived in that Truth? This is a similar question as wondering about a story of just Love from start to no ending. This is what I believe Vianna would call 7th Plane reality or 7th Plane healing witnesses...a state of consciousness in form. We just haven’t evolved there to know what our experience would be as a group consciousness. At this point I don't even know this as an individual, but I sense it is eventually possible. The ancients seers and Yogi’s say this ‘state’ exists. But aside from them, inside myself, I just know that as I love myself more and more, the merging of my ego self with who I really am will happen, because I have had different inklings of awareness of this, small experiences that let me know this is Truth of All-That-IS.
I realize there are many forms of stepped-down levels of this vibration of Unconditional Love like familial, spousal, romantic, and friendships types of love. But the Truth is that all still contain Unconditional Love, because THAT IS CREATION. THAT IS GOD, THAT IS ALL-THAT-IS, EVER WAS and ALWAYS WILL BE….and exist in everything, you and me, light and dark, solid and formless. And what if we came to the awareness that Love as ourselves looks at Love in seeing each other on a daily basis? Wow! Not there yet, but another possibility.
So as we gallop with the magical, Wooden Horse into our next adventures, remember that LOVE is always there for us, never left us, nor rejected nor abandoned us, and that Love will see us through.
Wishing you the recognition of Love that is YOU.
Are we all PSYCHIC? Scientists believe that animals - including humans - have a collective consciousness- a term used by certain scientists to describe the practice of humans, and animals, sharing behaviours and ideas with each other telepathically. A science journal in 2010 published claims made by Professor Daryl Bem, a physicist from Cornell University, set out to investigate 'psi', or parapsychology, through a series of nine experiments. Elsewhere, scientist Rubert Sheldrake has created experiments that test this collective consciousness and telepathy theory online and over the phone. He believes it can’t be coincidence that hundreds, if not thousands of people, around the world experience similar feelings of being watched, for example. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2509971/Are-PSYCHIC-Scientists-believe-animals--including-humans--collective-consciousness.html
'Afterlife' feels 'even more real than real,' researcher says
If your hospital is in Belgium, Dr. Steven Laureys may pay you a visit, interested to hear what you remember from your NDE, or near-death experience. Laureys heads the Coma Science Group at the university hospital in the city of Liege. NDEs feel "even more real than real," Laureys said. "If you use this questionnaire ... if the memory is real, it's richer, and if the memory is recent, it's richer," he said. "To our surprise, NDEs were much richer than any imagined event or any real event of these coma survivors," Laureys reported. The memories of these experiences beat all other memories, hands down, for their vivid sense of reality. "The difference was so vast," he said with a sense of astonishment. Even if the patient had the experience a long time ago, its memory was as rich "as though it was yesterday."
Parallel Universes Exist
Is there another you reading this article at this exact moment in a parallel universe? A growing number of cosmologists agree withDr. Brian Greene that this freakish quirk of nature may exist, that we are but one of many universes and at least one of these other worlds lies close to ours, maybe only a millimeter away. We can’t see this world, because it exists in a type of space different from the four dimensions of our everyday reality
Quantum weirdness: What we call 'reality' is just a state of mind
A lifetime studying quantum mechanics has convinced Bernard d'Espagnat that the world we perceive is merely a shadow of the ultimate reality. “In this quest I first found that whatever way you look at it the quantum mechanical formalism, when taken at face value, compels us to consider that two particles that have once interacted always remain bound in a very strange, hardly understandable way even when they are far apart, the connection being independent of distance.”
Cannabis electric car to be made in Canada
An electric car made of hemp is being developed by a group of Canadian companies in collaboration with [the Alberta provincial government]. The Kestrel will be prototyped and tested later in August by Calgary-based Motive Industries Inc. The compact car, which will hold a driver and up to three passengers, will have a top speed of 90 kilometres per hour and a range of 40 to 160 kilometres before needing to be recharged, depending on the type of battery. The car's body will be made of an impact-resistant composite material produced from mats of hemp, a plant from the cannabis family. Automotive pioneer Henry Ford first built a car made of hemp fibre and resin more than half a century ago. The car will take batteries with a capacity ranging from 4.5 to 17.3 kilowatt hours of energy.
Scientists Suspend Objects in Midair with Soundwaves and move them around like tiny UFO's
Video footage shows four speakers arranged around a square platform. The speakers emit supersonic sound waves, undetectable to human ears. They converge with such a powerful vibrating force at the center of the table, that they can lift drops of water and small beads into the air and guide them around like tiny UFOs. Scientists think the levitation technique could herald a new method of moving objects remotely.
How a book really can change your life: Brain function improves for DAYS after reading a novel
Many people have claimed that reading a special book has transformed their life, but now scientists have discovered that enjoying a novel can make a real, measurable change in the brain too. The study, published in the journal Brain Connectivity used fMRI scanners to identify brain networks associated with reading stories and found that changes in the brain linger for a few days after reading a powerful work of fiction. After completing all nine sections of the novel, the participants were scanned over five more mornings in a resting state. The results showed heightened connectivity in the left temporal cortex - an area of the brain which is associated with receptivity for language - on the mornings following the reading assignments. ‘Even though the participants were not actually reading the novel while they were in the scanner, they retained this heightened connectivity,’ Professor Berns said. ‘We call that a “shadow activity,” almost like a muscle memory,’ he added. Heightened connectivity was also seen in the central sulcus, which is the primary sensory motor region of the brain. ‘We already knew that good stories can put you in someone else’s shoes in a figurative sense. Now we’re seeing that something may also be happening biologically.’
Discovery of a very large underwater pyramid first discovered between the islands of São Miguel and Terceira in the Azores of Portugal
According to claims, the structure is said to be perfectly squared and oriented by the cardinal points. The pyramid was found in an area of the mid-Atlantic that has been underwater for about 20,000 years. Considering this is around the time of the last ice age where glaciation was melting from its peak 2000 years prior, whatever civilization, human or not, that was around before the ice age, could be responsible for building the pyramid.
