How to Shift Your Reality by Shifting Yourself

HJ: We do not see life as it is — we see life as we are.  And yet most people assume we see the world objectively.  And therein lies a great source of pain and suffering because we are projecting our thoughts and beliefs onto the world around us, believing that this is how the world is, when it is just us playing a game with ourselves.  And so we constantly fool ourselves into believing what we already believe is true, is true.  And we create our reality and then let it control us.  But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can shift your reality  once you start seeing life as a reflection of your own heart and mind — when you understand that you read whatever meaning into situations you choose to believe, you can then use ‘reality’ as a tool for self-reflection and growth.  This is one of the most powerful shifts you can make because it switches you from a victim into a powerful creator. It is how you shift your reality by shifting yourself.

Balancing Pleasure and Pain in Living a Conscious Life

Do you love living a conscious life?

A willing question maybe, but many fake their way through the answer to this question.

Religions, philosophies, and doctrines have all challenged us to embrace conscious life as energetic and engaged spirits in the hopes that we may live a happier life. Conscious life, however, is full of unhappiness, discomfort and suffering. Therefore, if we seek to fully embrace a conscious life, the embracing of negativity is mandatory for complete engagement. This reminds me of the Zen quote about fight the opposing Samurai enemy; “One must hug the enemy so that he can’t draw his sword.” Read more of this post

How to Tune Into Messages From Your Higher Self

The Higher Self is morally perfect, wise, and is guiding you through this journey as you pretend to be a human being for a little while. It is constantly sending us signs that will point us in the direct of evolution, love, and truth. These are signs that are from you beneath the conscious level, to you at the conscious level.

Here are 3 signs that your Higher Self has been giving you: Read more of this post

The 4 Keys to Effortless Manifestation

HJ: If manifestation is not effortless for you, you are doing it the hard way.  You see, when we remove whatever is blocking us from realizing and effortlessly manifesting our needs and desires, it begins to happen at the mere whim of a thought.  Many people do experience this, but the truth is, most do not.  So what is the difference between these two groups?  One has removed their attachments and subconscious emotional blockages to the degree necessary to experience this reality and the other has not yet reached that level.  It’s that simple.

You see, when people first learn about the principle of manifestation or the law of attraction, they naturally begin employing the techniques wherever they are at on a spiritual, emotional and mental level at that moment, which, for most people is not the level where effortless manifestation occurs.  In almost every case, inner work must be done to release the power of manifestation — essentially, to remove whatever is blocking it from becoming actualized in your current belief, thought and mental and emotional structures.  Without doing this, you are destined to fail because you will continually sabotage yourself unwittingly.  Sure, you might have some limited success, but the kind of life-changing creation of abundance, happiness, love, health and actualization most are seeking remains elusive and just out of reach.

Now, tapping into your true manifestation abilities is as simple as following the four steps below, however, if you have strong subconscious blockages, you will need to work on those concurrently or you will only get a fraction of the results you are intending. Read more of this post

Never Mind Consciousness, Mind the Subconscious

There is strong neurological research evidence to show that humans are controlled by their subconscious mind, and not their conscious minds. The subconscious mind is that which lies directly below the conscious mind and which is important for all major functions and activities of human body. Indeed it would not be untrue to state that every living micro organism in one’s physical body, every fiber in the nerves and every minute cell in one’s brain is nourished, stimulated and controlled by the subconscious. It is the subconscious that is responsible for the state of one’s wellness: physical, emotional, spiritual and psychological health. Read more of this post

How to Upgrade Your Genetic Code

HJ: Your genetic code is not set in stone at birth.  Researchers are now discovering that it responds dynamically to your thoughts and beliefs.  Therefore, it is absolutely possible to upgrade your genetic code by getting a handle on these aspects of yourself.

In every sense, we are now entering the age of the mind, sparked in part by the rapidly expanding and revolutionary field of neuroscience, which is proving many of the new age concept long-held suspect by many in the mainstream scientific community.  By studying the mind-body interaction more closely and with the incredible technologies now at our disposal, it is quickly becoming clear that the mind and body are very closely interrelated and have a massive influence on each other.

But what’s more is that by understanding this relationship, we can effectively manipulate it to accomplish incredible things, like healing ourselves physical and actually changing, or rather upgrading, our genetic code. Read more of this post

How the Universe Responds to Your Energetic Vibration

HJ: The universe is not static — it is dynamically responding to your every thought and emotion, the combination of which is known as your energetic vibration.  Despite what mainstream science might have you believe, we actually live in an intelligent, aware universe that is literally programmed to be a mirror of our the content of our mind and the vibration of our emotional state.

Many of you are likely familiar with the Law of Attraction, which is but one of many universal laws (like gravity and the laws of phsyics in a certain sense) that govern our existence.  The Law of Attraction is in large part responsive directly to your personal vibration.  If it is not clear to you how this is so, then you are in for a treat, because the article below outlines the mechanism of how this operates.  And, for that matter, how other aspects of our lives and the universe also respond to our unique energetic vibration.

Understanding the larger framework of how this occurs is extremely important for getting a handle on your own vibration so that you can adjust it to begin creating and attracting that which you wish to be your life experience.

This entire article touches on one of the main points that all people on the conscious path must eventually understand: that life is not happening to us, but being co-created by us.  The idea of energetic vibration helps us to understand how this operates and begin our path to mastery.

This is a fantastic article by Ken and we sincerely hope it helps you, where ever you are at on the path. Read more of this post

9 Fascinating Neuroscience Studies that Reveal the Inner Workings of Your Mind

1. Human Brains Are Hardwired for Empathy, Friendship

Perhaps one of the most defining features of humanity is our capacity for empathy — the ability to put ourselves in others’ shoes. A new University of Virginia study strongly suggests that we are hardwired to empathize because we closely associate people who are close to us — friends, spouses, lovers — with our very selves.”With familiarity, other people become part of ourselves,” said James Coan, a psychology professor in U.Va.’s College of Arts & Sciences who used functional magnetic resonance imaging brain scans to find that people closely correlate people to whom they are attached to themselves. The study appears in the August issue of the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience. Read more of this post

Stunning Visual Map of How Emotions Are Experienced in The Body

HJ:  Have you ever noticed that you feel specific emotions in different parts of your body? A team of Finnish researchers has created an innovative visual map that shows how different ares of our body are stimulated by different emotions, adding further proof to the growing realization that there is a very real, direct link between the body and the mind.  So much so that scientists are now able to measure the level of impact that provoked emotional responses have on specific areas of the body.  These findings could have major implications for understanding and diagnosing disease states and also creating therapies and treatments to heal them.  Furthermore, for individuals interested in exploring the connection between the mind and body, this incredibly detailed visualization will likely provide many insights into the complex relationship between the two.

How to Use Your Subconscious Mind Power to Create Permanent Health

HJ: Your subconscious mind is incredibly powerful and you can leverage its strength to create permanent health if you simply take the time to understand how it works. This knowledge will empower you with the tools you need to direct its incredible power in any direction you desire, not just towards health, although this is certainly a worthy use.

Most people believe that health is a purely physical process — simply exercise, eat right and take care of your body and you will live a long life free of disease or illness. While feeding the body properly is important, true health comes from the mind. The mind controls the body and holds ultimate power over all of its processes and functions and if ones mind is working against oneself through limiting beliefs or self-defeating, negative or contradictory thought processes, these will eventually manifest as physical symptoms in the body that no amount of nutrition, diet or exercise can correct. Until the root cause in the mind is dealt with, the problem will persist.

And herein lies the key to lifelong well being… By understanding that this is where true health originates, you can then begin to focus your efforts on healing those parts of it that may be keeping you from experiencing it in some way. This article will help you to understand exactly what parts need to be healed to create health and how the subconscious mind works so that you can know exactly what needs to be done in any situation to solve whatever problem it is you are facing.

You will also learn how true health is created and maintained so that you can begin to apply those principles to your own life immediately. This is powerful knowledge that when embraced and integrated into your being will produce results like clockwork. Read more of this post

How Your Thoughts and Beliefs Change Your Genes

HJ: The ability of thoughts and beliefs to change your genes has recently gained credibility in the eyes of science as researchers begin to more deeply understand the relationship between the mind and body. Despite the fact that the idea had largely been written off by many in the halls of academia as ‘spiritualist nonsense’, the concept stuck and now groundbreaking research is beginning to confirm what many already knew through direct experience. Our thoughts and beliefs have a very real, measurable influence on our genes.

The understanding of this relationship is still in its infancy in scientific communities and is perhaps too complex to ever be fully understood. However, the fact of the matter is that a direct cause and effect relationship has been established, proving once and for all that the old adage ‘mind over matter’ is not just philosophical theory, but actually very tangibly true and the key to unlocking great personal power.

Healing Your Chakra System: A Complete Guide to the Emotional, Physical, and Spiritual Aspects of The Chakras

HJ: The development of your Chakra System directly relates to your level of consciousness and is not necessarily linear, meaning you can have partially developed/opened/blocked chakras. If, for example, you are generally operating at a high level of consciousness but have self expression issues, your throat chakra can be partially blocked while the third eye and crown may be much more fully open/active. The chakras are also dynamic, meaning that they can change over time moving from blocked to open and blocked again as one has various experiences that effect the self emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.

A common mistake people make is focusing only on the physical aspects of healing the chakras.  While this is certainly important, it is really only one layer of 4 main layers (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual) that affect each chakra.  Always remember that energy moves downward from the spiritual realms into the mental, emotional, and ultimately physical experience, so dealing with spiritual issues has powerful effects that echo throughout the other aspects of the self.  From this context one can see the fallacy of focusing solely on the physical aspects of the self and chakra system.  However, as we primarily identify with the physical, this is usually seen to be the cause of and solution to many problems that are actually spiritual, mental or emotional in nature.  So it is with the chakras.  They are the interface between the higher etheric, spiritual realms and the physical body.

As always, do the internal spiritual, mental and emotional work and everything will naturally sort itself out.  In this sense, working with the chakras offers an amazing innate bio-feedback mechanism to help one identify what areas of their own consciousness need the most attention and work.  Understanding the chakra system will give you a roadmap for how various mental, emotional, physical and spiritual issues and imbalances (as well as those things that are in balance) manifest in the body, allowing you to better understand how to approach the healing of your mind body spirit triad.

Auras, Chakras & Energy Fields: Cleansing and Activating Your Energy Systems

By Mary Kurus

Why Look After Our Energy Systems?

Our energy systems are alive and intelligent.

They know exactly what they need for perfect health and vibrant energy. When our energy systems are disrupted, blocked, slowed down, or damaged, messages are sent to the conscious level that something is wrong and that we need to address imbalances, blockages and damage.

We are trained to look at the physical body and address its needs rather than look at our energetic systems to provide them what they need for perfect health. Our energy systems are conscious energy and this energy is connected with all energies in the Universe.

Our energy systems act as a connection between the physical world and the metaphysical or spiritual world. When we look after our energy systems we look after our deepest and most profound needs, including the physical, emotional intellectual and spiritual. Read more of this post
