Lucid Dreaming

The past two months have featured particularly active mornings of lucid dreaming. David’s alarm goes off before 5 a.m. and we snuggle a bit before he gets up for work. Then I drift in and out of a light trance and test, tinker, retest “solutions” to whatever challenges I assign my subconscious mind. On any given day, such challenges range anywhere from “How do we clean up Fukushima?” to “How do we unhinge Monsanto’s stranglehold on seeds?” to “How do I get the bindweed in my garden to go away and where does it go anyway?” to “How do I guarantee permanent passage to the Faery Realm if all hell breaks loose in this dimension?” to “How do I turn last night’s leftovers into something extra yummy for dinner?” to “What’s the nature of reality?”

For years, I’ve used Dreamtime to solve my most pressing personal riddles, but for the past two months, I’ve passed the bulk of those hours on more global questions. [UPDATE: This article link pretty much sums up what I’m attempting to resolve in Dreamtime.]

In no particular order, the following quotes and chants have starring roles in both my Dreamtime and waking hours. They play in background loops of varying speed, as though my brain’s attempting to code crack them in a Rubik’s Cube meets LOST meets Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, like a soundtrack to whatever “plot” I’m dreaming or daydreaming.

As the Hopi say, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” One of these mornings that combination lock is bound to bust free and sooner or later, all heaven will break loose. In the event that one of you, dear readers, happens to be humming the missing frequency and wondering why you have this silly melody stuck in your head, I’ll list some the most frequent phrases and chants I hear all day, every day:

“Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo.” (I hear it in a very specific Snatam Kaur chant: Ong, namo guru dev namo, guru dev namo, guru dev … namo.) This Adi Mantra is chanted at the beginning of each kundalini yoga session and translates to “I bow to the Creative Wisdom; I bow to that Divine Teacher inside myself.” This chant plays in the background of most of my recent lucid dreams.

“Hon Sha Ze Sho Nen” This is the transliteration of the Reiki Distant Healing Symbol learned in Reiki Level 2. I usually see it or feel my arms motioning this symbol throughout my dreams. I’ve taught an entire day-long class just on this one symbol, so its meaning extends beyond what I share here. People most often translate it as “The Buddha in me reaches out to the Buddha in you to promote enlightenment and peace,” and/or “No past, no present, no future.” The Reiki Distant Healing Symbols collapses everything into a single point, thus doing away with all perceived separation, whether through time or space.

Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Svaha (“Gone, gone, gone beyond, gone beyond the beyond — blessings on the journey and the journeyer,” or, alternatively, “GONE, GONE, GONE BEYOND, COMPLETELY GONE BEYOND, ENLIGHTENMENT, HAIL.”) I hear it as sung by Abigail Spinner McBride on “Fire of Creation,” although many people, including Deva Premal have presented their own versions of this chant.

From Dr. Joseph Murphy:

“The first thing to remember is the dual nature of your mind. The subconscious mind is constantly amenable to the power of suggestion; furthermore the subconscious mind has complete control of the functions, conditions, and sensations of your body. Trust the subconscious mind to heal you. It made your body, and it knows all of its processes and functions. It knows much more than your conscious mind about healing and restoring you to perfect balance.”

[“You do not always get the answer overnight.] Keep on turning your request over to your subconcious until the day breaks and the shadows flee away.

From Walt Whitman:

“Every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.”

From the Faery Realm:

“A person’s word is bond.
Respect, Not Control.
No Rudeness!”

“Behold, the silver branch.”

“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.” (This phrase is accompanied by an awareness of the star shape inside the apple, the silver branch as traditionally an apple branch giving passage to the Faery Realm, Avalon as “The Isle of Apples,” and a quite physical craving for apples!)

“Awen is available.” (Awen is a Welsh word for “poetic inspiration,” somewhat associated with the esoteric meaning on the OS Rune, which I sometimes also see and feel.)

From Dr. Larry Dossey:

(The concept rather than this actual quote from “Space, Time and Healing”):

“Interestingly, the perceptions of passing time that we observe from our external clocks cause our internal clocks to run faster. (Anything that demonstrates periodicity can be viewed as a clock, such as many of our physiological functions.)”

From Lewis Carroll:

“It’s a poor sort of memory that only works backwards.”

“Alice laughed. ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said. ‘One can’t believe impossible things.’

“‘I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. ‘When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.’”

And then I wake up.

Paige Bartholomew ~ Healing Trauma in the 4 Levels of the Heart

Today, I’m posting a valuable video from Paige Bartholomew addressing neurological and body trauma. As individuals (and as a culture) we have so much trauma embedded in our bodies, hearts and nervous systems that it often feels difficult to remain in body due to the pain. So many addictions, distractions and the ability to detach from instead of help to heal our world, stem from this desire to avoid re-triggered trauma.

In this video, Paige gives some simple techniques to help release the original trauma from the body so that we don’t immediately go back into that trauma every time we experience a trigger. She shares techniques for individuals, but “As Within, So Without.” The more we as individuals address our own, individual wounds, the more we heal our world.

At first, Paige keeps us focused on the body, rather than the story. “Whatever it is you feel, is the right thing to feel.” Say to yourself, “Now I’m going to find a place in my body that feels OK.” “If you can’t find a place in your body, then go outside your body … Find any place that’s ‘safe’ for you.” “Feel the sensation in the part of your body that feels good.” I love her gentle approach of asking the good feeling parts of the body to remind the traumatized parts of the body how to feel regulated and healthy. Paige makes an excellent connection between the healing of the heart and regulating the nervous system. Fight, flight, freeze? “Regulation of the nervous system is what you need when you’re dealing with trauma. … The heart wants to remember that it’s loved. It wants to hear that you love it. … It wants to know that ‘the Universe loves me and I matter here.'”

Paige has lovely energy, and from my personal experience as well as my Medical Intuitive experience, she’s right on that if you want to heal trauma embedded in the body, you really do need to go directly to the body itself. She asks, “Have you been working really hard on your spiritual practices, but still feel like you’re not able to fully heal, or become at peace inside? It’s vital that we understand what Trauma looks like on every level of the being – ego, heart, soul and unity – so that we can heal it appropriately for its type.”

As we attempt to shift our physical world — heal our bodies, our finances, political structures, poisoned parts of the planet, all those 3D things that can evoke such intense pain, fear and grief — we need techniques to help us release the pain so that we can release those experiences. Masking symptoms or putting band-aids on social structures won’t bring lasting, tangible change. But healing will.

Paige also gives insights on how to heal on the emotional and soul levels. “By giving Unconditional Love to each other, we can start to learn how to give it to ourselves.” She then addresses the level of unity, at which point we recognize our connection to All That Is, to everyone and everything. “On the level of the unity, there is no ‘wounded.’ … On the level of the unity, our body is calm, because it knows [that we are loved and that we matter.]”

Paige notes, and I 100% agree: “The important thing to remember is that we can’t skip over the levels. We can’t just go straight to the unity level and pray and meditate all day long and expect that we’re gonna be healed, because what happens is that people who meditate a lot will be fantastic when they’re meditating or when they’ve been praying for three hours. But as soon as they go back out into the world, they become activated in their body and they don’t know why. And there’s this subtle message inside of us that says ‘What’s wrong with me? Why am I not getting better? I’m doing all this spiritual stuff.'” It becomes a destructive spiral of self-judgment. As Paige explains, the reason you’re not getting any better is because “you can’t just focus on the unity and then expect the body and the heart to know the truth about themselves. We have to work with the level of the body, the level of the heart, the level of the soul, and we heal on every level.”

I talk a lot about “integration” … healing on all the levels, reclaiming all the levels and layers of our being. Yes, we are “All One,” but we are also Divinity expressing itself as individuals. This world is Divinity expressing itself through form. If we want to heal our world, then learning how to heal all the levels of ourselves will greatly aid us in that process. I highly recommend Paige’s video for anyone who continues to experience physical or emotional pain, despite excellent spiritual hygiene. We have souls, and souls are beautiful beings. We have bodies, and bodies are beautiful beings. We have hearts, and those hearts, though battered and broken, are some of the most beautiful beings in the world. When we reclaim all these parts of ourselves from old traumas, we free not only ourselves, but our entire world. In freeing ourselves — for real — we establish new vibrations that others can emulate. We can heal quickly, but we cannot skip steps.

Thank you to Paige for so compassionately articulating these concepts. Peace!

Off-Loading Karma and Cellular Memory

Just a quick heads up: today’s eclipse and the next three days offer an exceptional window of opportunity to off-load a bunch of old junk — especially past life junk. I’ve noticed this in myself and during some sessions this week: the veils between lifetimes are particularly thin right now. If you’re experiencing major emotional or physical symptoms that have you stopped in your tracks, use that pause to inquire, “Is this even related to my current lifetime?!” Notice your body’s response. If you feel an immediate shift of the energy, a lightening of your load, or prickles of relief and hope, I encourage you to send that baggage off with the Universal Bellhop.

You are a VIP in your own life … this life … and you have arrived! Kick off your shoes, fluff up your pillow, open the curtains, and smile at your good fortune. If the Universal Bellhop loses your luggage, no worries there. You didn’t want that old junk anyway, did you? Go ahead, open the closet in your penthouse suite. Everything there’s a perfect fit for your new, healthy body. Take a deep breath and let your heart feel glad. Savor your new surroundings while you contemplate what “home” means. You’re not quite there yet, but you’ve moved out of the old digs. No need to drag the past — even the lengthy, distant past — around with you anymore.

Use these three days to smile with relief, clean yourself off, expand your horizons and plan a more suitable itinerary for yourself. If you like where you were already headed, you can hop back on that ride; just know that you’ve suddenly been bumped up to First Class. If you prefer your newly imagined itinerary, just know that the baggage you dumped has allowed you access to places you could not have otherwise gone. Physical limitations from past life cellular memory can evaporate when you decide to give away those old costumes. You’re naked now. You decide what to wear, and how you’ll wear it. From now on, you decide. Enjoy your stay and enjoy your going.

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”
― Dr. Seuss
