Chanting is a way of getting in touch with yourself. It’s an opening of the heart and letting go of the mind and thoughts. It deepens the channel of grace, and it’s a way of being present in the moment. ~ Krishna Das
Chanting is highly sensory and causes our energetic vibration to rise to a higher frequency. Every cell, organ, and tissue in our bodies has its own vibration and since the beginning of time, sound has been used to create harmony and balance within ourselves and our environment. Everything in the universe has a vibration and a frequency. Everything that we think and feel causes our brain to emit waves of vibrations that create a sound. The frequency of this sound cannot be heard by humans but emits a frequency that makes the resonant energy of the universe align with us. These frequencies are the very things that create our reality.
Thought is not, as is many times supposed, a mere indefinite abstraction or something of a like nature. It is, on the contrary, a vital, living force, the most vital, subtle and irresistible force there is in the universe. ~ Ralph Waldo Trine, In Tune With the Infinite
Thoughts have the power to create and we must be mindful of the thoughts we put out into the world. My thoughts are most associated with the power and beauty of this sacred earth.
I love the wilderness, the plants and creatures that inhabit this planet. In Robin William’s movie, What Dreams May Come, the characters created their reality through their thoughts. William’s reality was of creating beauty and since I first saw that movie I have held the intention to create even more beauty in my life in the manner through which he did in the movie, by making my thoughts my reality. To imagine flowers at my feet and seeing them become manifest at the next footfall. While living in Oregon, I manifested a Japanese maple tree. I wanted one so much but never purchased it. One day, while picking blackberries on the perimeter of my yard, lo and behold, a Japanese maple that was about 18” tall was growing under the berry patch. I transplanted it and it grew very big in a short period of time.
…a profound recapitulation is the most expedient means to lose the human form. Thus it is easier for stalkers, after recapitulating their lives, to make use of all the not-doings of the self, such as erasing personal history, losing self-importance, breaking routines and so forth. ~ Carlos Castaneda, The Eagle’s Gift
The Nagual told me that when the second attention has to be called upon to assemble itself, all that is needed is the motion of opening that door. That’s the secret of the Toltec dreamers once they are formless. ~ Carlos Castaneda, The Second Ring of Power
Throughout his books, Castaneda discusses sweeping the island of the tonal or liberating oneself from the mundane details of first attention. This basically has to do with recognizing the mold of man for what it is and freeing ourselves from the mold. Doing so allows us to view the world from a new state of perception; choosing to go beyond states of conscious awareness of the first attention and entering into the realm of dream, second attention, or the unconscious. When we connect with second attention we are able to bring ourselves into a state of natural balance. When we integrate the first and second attentions, the second attention accesses new energetic frequencies, and the first attention then organizes the new information. This integration provides heightened awareness and acute perception.
Don’t blindly follow a path. Forge into the unknown gathering knowledge and awareness along the way. Immerse yourself into the depths of all things so that you may come to know the world through your own passion and not through the vision of another. ~ Alejandro, Becoming Awareness
We are beings who are fully capable of liberating ourselves from the repetitive patterns of humanity. By connecting with silent knowledge and aligning with universal life force energy we have access to unlimited potential for creating ourselves and our reality. How we choose to create it is entirely up to us.
The wisdom elders of our society are those who, in their youth, were just like us. They were warriors of freedom seeking vision and guidance from an unnatural existence rooted in greed and power. They danced, and drummed, and chanted, and sweat, and quested, and journeyed, and explored. They questioned the answers, tested everything, rejected certain things and followed their own vision of truth and beauty.
Like many other people, as a young woman I sought out elders and wisdom teachers who could help me to understand the mysteries of life so I could find the answers to the questions I had. Some of the teachers I met were charlatans, nothing more than self-important imposters claiming to hold the keys to the kingdom. As an intuitive I quickly walked away from these self-proclaimed gurus. I have been blessed to find a few real teachers, elders who have been committed to spirit from an early age, just as I had been. Continue reading →
You’re thinking that the double is what the word says; a double, or another you. I chose those words in order to describe it. The double is oneself and cannot be faced in any other way. – Don Juan, Tales of Power
When we exist in a state of balance, life-force energy moves through our bodies easily and unobstructed but when we are in states of imbalance, the energy within our chakras, the wheels of energy that reside within our bodies, become blocked which prevents us from vibrating in alignment with the universal life-force around us.
When one enters into a state of dream, or second attention, the double, also known as the astral body is accessed. It is when we enter into stillness and silence that we are able to make this connection, allowing us to see and become aware of the things that prevent us from moving forward with discovering or fully living our life’s purpose. When we become aligned with our double we become open to the energies that are essential for both effective action and manifestation of our goals and dreams because it is here that we are immersed within the entire body of conscious energy to which we are all directly connected. When we are able to focus our attention in this realm of existence we discover that our thoughts begin to take form. We are now aware that the entire creation of the cosmos is an act of creation and that we, ourselves, are creators.
If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration. – Nikola Tesla.
In the beginning the word existed. So what was the word? The word was the sound of Source energy, God, Intent, the primordial and ancient sound through which the entire universe was created. Some believe that this sound is Om and that the sound Om is also known as the embodiment of all sounds together. If one is to produce the vibration of OM with their intention directed at aligning with Source energy, they become one with the all that is. More than a chant, OM is a sacred syllable that represents the vibration of the universe. It is the sound of the infinite, without beginning and without end that embraces all that exists. The word that existed in the beginning was sound, the force of vibration through which all things began to take shape, to come into form. Continue reading →
Trust and surrender. Be in the flow. Raise your vibration. Heighten your awareness. Live authentically. Dream a new dream. Create your reality.
These are all wonderful thoughts, exquisite goals. There are multitudes of books, courses, seminars, and workshops available in the world for you to learn how to do these things. You can listen to tapes and watch videos and read every book that has ever been written in order to learn everything you need to know in preparation for this endeavor. But once you have all of the required knowledge will you actually make the choice to follow through?
Have you stopped to consider how our connection with the Earth facilitates the awakening of our vibrational frequencies, brings us to states of higher consciousness and into realms of deeper awareness. Sitting within silence allows us to become empty vessels through which the Spirit may flow. With our minds empty our thoughts become pure and our awakening reunites us with our connection with the universal life-force energy (intent) where we are able to witness the oneness of creation. When we witness the magical beauty of creation we are able to align with the silent flow of primal energy, thus leading to our own creative evolution.
When the assemblage point assembles a world, that world is total. This is the marvel that the old seers stumbled upon and never realized what it was: the awareness of the earth can give us a boost to align other great bands of emanations, and the force of that new alignment makes the world vanish. ~ Don Juan, The Fire from Within
Humans have the ability to assemble, to create, new bands of awareness by simply aligning with the emanations of the earth. What are these emanations? They are the force of power, the fibrous lines that lie within the reach of our fingertips, the indescribable commands that are awaiting their creation through our intention and our purpose as incarnate awareness in human form. It’s a masterpiece, a manifestation of beauty just as we, ourselves, have become manifest through intention alone.
When our awareness is aligned with other energetic forces of the universe, including the earth, great and amazing things become manifest as a result of what is perceived by the awareness that is doing the perceiving. We are a feeling, an awareness encased here. ~ Don Juan, Tales of Power
A level of practical knowledge was included as part of teaching the mastery of awareness. On that practical level don Juan taught the procedures necessary to move the assemblage point. The two great systems devised by the sorcerer seers of ancient times to accomplish this were: dreaming, the control and utilization of dreams; and stalking, the control of behavior. ~ Carlos Castaneda, The Power of Silence
Warriors know that it is necessary to modify the foundation of our perception from that of reason to that of the abstract; the ultimate foundation of a warrior’s perception rests on the certainty that energy is all there is.
When a warrior makes a commitment to total freedom the only thing that is required is to hone their mastery. Mastery of dreaming and mastery of stalking. Warriors know that they need energy in order to face the unknown and when arriving at the point of facing the pure abstract they must be impeccable. If they are not, they will not dart past the eagle and will, instead, remain caught within the emanations that recycles them back into the karmic loop of reincarnation.
