Don Juan said that seeing was the crucial element in both the destruction of the ancient seers’ world and in the reconstruction of the new view. It was through seeing that the new seers discovered certain undeniable facts, which they used to arrive at certain conclusions, revolutionary to them, about the nature of man and the world. These conclusions, which made the new cycle possible, were the truths about awareness he was explaining to me. – The Fire From Within
All full moons are energetically powerful. They remind us that when we become too full with thoughts, ideas, indulgences, etc. it is time to gradually release so that we can move back to a state of newness, of emptiness. When we are empty, we begin to become full again, just like the moon. We are filled with new ideas, visions, intuitions; all of which allow us to become more attuned to ourselves so we can continue to move with fluidity through the monthly cycles of renewal and release.
When two full moons occur in one month they are called blue moons and they only appear on an average of once every three years, rarely seen more than once in a single year though this does happen. The last blue moon that appeared was on August 31, 2012. The next blue moon to appear is scheduled for January 31st, 2018. Tonight’s blue moon is very powerful on an energetic level.
Some people claim that orbs are specs of dust, reflections, or dirt on the camera lens. Others believe that they are energetic manifestations of spirit beings, angels, or even ghosts.
What I can tell you is this. They are real. My friend and I were camping at a place in South Dakota that many consider has been a power place for Native Americans for centuries. It is very dark there and there aren’t any power poles, etc.
One night we were talking and I suggested we call in the spirit beings to our camp. And then I thought that perhaps I could get a picture of some orbs in the event that the spirit beings did decide to join us. The proof is in the following pictures.
The most important thing of all is to be in the breath. When we connect to the creative center within ourselves, we kindle our connection with spirit and then with authenticity and originality we are able to walk that pure consciousness into the world.
Being in the breath allows us to shift our attention and open our ability to perceive in new ways. Being in the breath ushers in the ability to accomplish something new and moves us beyond the habitual fixations that may prevent us from seeing beyond the world as we have come to know it. We are capable of shifting our attention through a number of modalities, each person needing to dedicate some time in discovering which method may work best for him/her. For some it may be dancing, or sitting on the earth in silence, or swimming in the ocean, or meditating, or traveling to a place for the first time. There are a number of things through which we can shift our attention and what works for one may not work for another. The point is to allow yourself to find what works for you in order to do something different, something outside of your comfort zone while holding the intention of exploring all possibility and potential that lies dormant or obstructed within you.
When the assemblage point shifts, it makes possible the perception of an entirely different world – as objective and factual as the one we normally perceive. Sorcerers go into that other world to get energy, power, solutions to general and particular problems, or to face the unimaginable. ~ Tales of Power
Creating and entering into another band of awareness is fun, creative, and let’s face it . . . a form of escapism. I know, I’ve done it for years. With a foot in this world and through the applications of shifting my assemblage point, I have succeeded in being in this world but not of it. But the bottom line is that I am always truly here.
Transcending the man-made matrix is a goal that people have and have had for a very, very long time. Through the practice of transcendental meditation, ingesting psychedelics, mantras, chanting, drumming, vision quests, praying, sweat lodge ceremony, dancing to heart-pounding music and a myriad of other creative endeavors we become free from the monkey mind. I know this too, for I’ve practiced this way for years.
Every man is in touch with everything else, not through his hands, but through a bunch of long fibers that shoot out in all directions from the center of his abdomen. Those fibers join a man to his surroundings; they keep his balance; they give him stability. ~ A Separate Reality
More than stability, our connection with all else has the potential to provide us with stability while existing within multiple realities with fluidity. While we can attain balance when we are connected with the universal life flow of energy moving in, through and around us at all times, it is important to remain in a state of impeccable balance with our energy by ensuring that those around us are unaffected by our actions. This, as Daniel Quinn describes, is Leaver energy – the premise of the Leaver story is ‘man belongs to the world’ – in balance with all beings and situations as they unfold.
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 a person aligns with intent – the universal life force energy that constantly flows through and around everything at all times – they may come to find themselves floating in complete surrender and looking into or feeling into the unknown. Once they get their bearings, something magical begins to occur. The veil lifts so to speak, and the conditioning that may have prevented them from seeing, feeling, sensing, knowing, and intuiting things as they really are is gone. They begin to understand and come to know what it means to experience the oneness with the Universe.
This heartfelt joy of ultimate oneness ushers in such a deep sense of gratitude. Appreciation and gratefulness permeate the heart and soul of one’s being, while simultaneously bursting forth, from you, an immense emanation of gratitude back into the universe. The sacred hoop of eternal oneness has been restored, the connecting link that unites you once again to the profundity of an infinite and eternal universe, never to be separated again.
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
They don’t have eyes or ears but they can find their own food. They lack a brain but some scientists think that they can collaborate, communicate and even wage war. From nurturing their young to eavesdropping on their neighbors, it seems plants are doing and saying quite a bit. We just need to listen. ~ What Plants Talk About – PBS Documentary
This is such an amazing documentary! They discuss how tests have confirmed that tree/plant systems create hubs of awareness and recognize family members. Plants are able to integrate and organize information without a brain or nervous system. They can shape-shift and transform in order to attract different pollinators.
This predator not only feeds off of human awareness; it also manipulates humans. Don Juan said that there are a lot of outside forces controlling people in every moment and that this control is something that exists outside of the domain of language because these experiences lie so far beyond syntax. ~ Don Juan
It’s been a very long time since I’ve had to deal with the predator. In fact, I thought the predatory energies were a thing of the past, could no longer touch me, that I had elevated myself to a state of existence that I had become impeccable and immune to the poison of it. It seemed that no matter what, I was able to dance past the predatorin freedom and when people asked me to write more about it, I refused, deluding myself into believing that it no longer exists in my “separate reality”.
Where do they come from, these horrible bottom feeders, who have not one iota of self-worth or respect for others? It’s infuriating to me that they exist at all but even worse that they appear in my small and simple humble reality. Really? I mean what of all the work I’ve done my entire life to take the higher ground and rise above the petty bullshit?
