A Sleeping Mystic Awakens Part I

WHAT IS A MYSTIC?

Mystics are sci­en­tists of their own inherent divinity. Those who consciously experience the subtleties of the world within, before it is pro­jected outward and lived through in this physical realm, without. Since a mystic realizes that there is much more to real­ity than what is captured by the phys­i­cal eyes and through the intel­lect alone, it allows one to be open to long buried ideas such as the Universal Laws and Principles. The entirety of life and of the uni­verse at large is regarded as a mys­tery to be unrav­eled, from the micro to the macro, its inherent value is at the root of the mystical experience. The mystic seeks Truth through contemplation and self surrender in order to attain unity within, and so with all things, while remaining aligned with one’s own unique integrity or inner code. To be a mystic is to walk the line, and to live a paradoxical life.

“Are You A Mystic?”

A mystic tends to look at ordinary things as manifestations of a miraculous and infinite source of wisdom. How can this be true? When you become more consciously aware of Universal Laws and Principles, you will naturally become multidimensional. This means that you will experience every single thing from many vantages at once. How else can we speed up our evolution without outrageously over-extending our life expectancy? The more you focus your intention, attention and therefore your energy in this direction, the more wisdom you will reap. Do yourself a favor and Discover More! If you spend as little as 30 days authentically focusing yourself on this root knowledge, your life will freely reorganize itself. As you surrender to this path and allow your life to inevitably fall apart, you can empower yourself to see through real-eyes, and realize that this too has only been a frozen and illusory perspective. In fact, you can choose to have the exalting experience of: your life falling together! Witness the world from your higher self’s perspective! Imagine now that you are able to actually lift yourself up by seeing through the single eye of your higher self in the peak of your subjective experience.

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I will meet you there.”

Rumi

When you live in your authentic Truth, plugged into and in flow with the Universe, you have a certain Omni access to the BIG PICTURE. You become the eye of the storm. From this vantage, what is it that you really want to focus on?

UNVEILING THE SLEEPING MYSTIC

I realize only now at the tender age of 35, that I was indeed born a mystic. And to some degree or another, right now we have an entire planet of sleeping mystics. The only way another can ever tell you that you are a mystic is if they bring you through a series of awakenings or initiations designed to tune you into ‘non-local’ realms of existence. Otherwise, I don’t feel that anyone can truly know this to be true but you, yourself. And consequently no one can give you this title, but you. On some level you must recognize this for yourself first and set yourself outside the norm of the collective that you are immersed within, for another to be able to do the same to you, and for you. Silently within, the wheels are set into motion when you give another permission to come into your reality to bring you an opportunity for a co-creative experience together. According to Universal Law, As Within, So Without. When you are truly ready to consciously and intentionally live through this supernatural reality, someone from the outside world will come upon you through the Law of Attraction to honor your vibrational request for the experience that you have lined up with.

teacher“Teachers open the door but you must walk through it yourself.”

YET, WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT TO WAIT FOR PERMISSION

As they say, when you are ready, the teacher will appear – for those with the eyes to see and the ears to hear. It is always up to you to walk through this door, or to walk away. This is the double edged sword of free will, with our ego squarely in the driver’s seat. And it seems that home to the ego is actually focused in the opposite direction to the home of the higher self! Now that was a novel idea for a collective experience of limitation! So depending on whether you are in your ego mind, or in your divine mind, dictates how you perceive each idea and experience of life in any given moment, giving way to the paradigm of good and bad that so many people are stuck in. There is no right or wrong answer, there is only the Right answer – for you. This exhibits an example of the funny little paradoxes that befall us as we make our way through the structures and systems that were set up to foster and support our collective development. Those safe and familiar paradigms that we have clung to actually house the belief systems that we feel stagnated and limited by, as we ready ourselves for the individuation of our authentic self in physical form.

As a young child, empathic and pretty awake amid a sleeping world, I sensed this differentiation between my true desires and what the world deemed acceptable, and I hid the things that did not meet other people’s standards. I always associated this with shame, which may have been true to me at the time. Yet, this is merely a child’s perspective. I now see a deeper reality where it was out of self perseverance that I felt any shame at all. From this perspective I have now, a God send really. If I was in an unaccepting reality, instinctively and quite naturally I would recoil myself from a psychically toxic and polluted world. I would naturally hide this ever so delicate and most real aspect of myself safely beneath the empty mask of acceptable societal virtue, while simultaneously shielding myself using a false veneer to become that which was not natural at all. I was caught in a vicious cycle, lacking any conscious reference for how to get out of it. I will refer to this experience as being caught in a downward spiral. Living my life this way left me not only perpetually tired and spiritually numb, but it also created the eventual manifestation of a personal deadness towards life, leading into yet greater expressions of emotional and bodily dis-ease. Surely, I believed that it would never be safe enough to be me as I gingerly spiraled down to my new home called rock bottom.

The Journey To Your Authentic Self

ARE YOU LIVING IN YOUR TRUTH?

If not, chances are you are feeling lost and alone right now. As individuals we are hardly able to find ourselves, much less anyone else. The vast majority of our planet is caught in this rut. How old were you when you first stopped speaking your Truth? Were you 7? 13? 20? There appears to be a gap in consciousness. We have forgotten how to get from here (the made up self) ———> to there (the Authentic Self), naturally. Energetically, we have forgotten how to grow up! Your Truth is symbolically your h(OM)e. When you are out of alignment with your Truth, you are out of alignment with that which you truly are, perceive, do, think, etc. in any given moment. As long as you are out of alignment, you will never create the seemingly illusive bridge that allows you to feel at h(OM)e on this planet. I would encourage you to study and make a practice of the Law of Self in your daily life since we are here to live through the experience of the reflection of that which we hold within. As long as we remain unconscious to this aspect of reality, we will remain split as we continue promoting and living out our duality paradigms such as good/bad, right/wrong, black/white. These are all judgments merely representing the layers that actually hold your Truth camouflaged from you.

Once you make this practice of Self a new habit in your world, you may begin using The Law of Reflection as a tool to decode your own reality. You will notice that there will be less room for judgment in your world as you see the correspondences that exist. On occasion, I have looked into my reality, already aware of this powerful information, and quite truly I had a very hard time accepting that I somehow had a hand in creating the circumstance of that experience. Once centered in my Being, I again allow myself to be in a space where I am observing the bigger picture, conscious and aware; then I am able to make new decisions and take new actions that lead me into the direction of Love and Joy. How can this be done? By releasing resistance to the world around you so you can see things as they truly are, and from there respond accordingly. Allow the mental game of duality and judgment to fall away. Drop your awareness into the center of your heart, where your Authentic Self resides. This is where you will recover the voice of Knowing. Choose to place your energy into new directions that feel better to your body, mind and soul, while remaining aware of that which is reflecting to you. It sounds complicated and it is an acquired artform in its own right. To begin your own journey to your Authentic Self, it merely takes your intention to do so and a willingness to respond to the answers you receive. If your choices involve your heart, I have no doubt you are on the right track already!

Be sure to re-direct potential pitfalls by remaining aware that old habits and patterns die hard. Generally, we are creatures of comfort and habit, by knowing our own ‘demons’ we can be more conscious as we enter into experiences that are reminiscent of our old, well worn in stories. We must be rigorous on this journey into Self. It is a process of living that we have not entirely experienced before now, yet it is entirely beneficial to develop it in your life. As you do, you will quite literally change your brain and heal any inconsistencies where fear and stagnation have taken a hold of your life. Utilizing reflection as a tool you will recalibrate the hemispheres of your brain and re-program new perspectives and patterns into already existent cycles in your blueprint. The framework is still useful, and the new information you generate with this exercise will naturally fire through the pathways in your brain as you discover the synchronicities of ‘within’ to that which is ‘without’. This is where the stage is set for healing and transformation to take place – where we allow the lines of reality become blurred.

As you consciously create this new pattern – you will begin to change your mind – a lot! Allow these new truths and new ways of being to flow freely through your expression without judgement or pre-conceived notion for how you believe things should be. *Noting: the idea you have about how you believe things ‘should be’ is created from your beliefs and/or Mind Matrix* These are the very beliefs that you are attempting to move beyond in order to nestle into a space of Inner Knowing. Once you understand that your beliefs are based on dualities that are merely holding your illusions and your pain firmly in place – you will naturally seek Truth in the world around you; and have no doubt that your Truth is also seeking you.

seeking

Your limiting beliefs will quite naturally fall away if you allow yourself to fully surrender to this Universal process. Yes, this is precisely what we have all been running from for most of our lives, and I am telling you to turn to face it and embrace it. You will begin to forget things, sometimes quite rapidly, as you allow the old to fall away. Each time you allow that shift to take place, you recalibrate to an entirely new reality where the surface looks identical, but the subtleties are not the same. Innately we all transfer our old memories along with us to be re-interpreted by our body with each shift in perspective. This is how we process, detox and dis-identify from the sole view of our ego self. As we progress, we will begin to expand into a more multidimensional perspective of ourselves, and of our reality. This means seeing and processing the world through many truths at once. In view of the bigger picture, all of these little shifts will create a larger paradigm shift which will ultimately align you with your Truth at the core of who you really are.

Your burden is of false self-identifications—abandon them all!

Nisargadatta Maharaj

Only in speaking your Truth will you ever be free. Your Truth, like you, is ever changing and evolving ~ if you are growing. Without speaking our Truth in the moments that make up the journey of our lives, we become lost in our alignment with our True Self. As we begin to peal back the layers of who we thought we were, we reveal everything hidden in between and our ego goes into panic feeling threatened by change and of the unknown. The roadblock becomes obvious since we have identified with our masks and forgotten the part of us that makes any of this real in the first place. The Authentic Self resides untarnished beneath the masks we have adopted as the real “I”. The ego employs the archaically programmed mind to make you second guess yourself, leaving you few options but to  enter into a frequency of fear. These are your invisible barriers that keep you locked within a world of lack. Your ego wants you to believe that it is somehow better not to change. But this is a trap since without Soul alignment you will never truly Know yourself, and no one else will ever know you either. And to this I say, “If that is true – what would be the point?”. The most brilliant part of oneself is kept hidden beneath the veils shrouded in collective taboos, and our minds use this net to hold us ‘safely’ within the collective delusion. It almost seems to be an epidemic – over time, I wonder what these thought patterns will express themselves as in our bodies, and in our physical reality? I do believe this is one of the many reasons that so many people feel so separated from our world as we know it. Too many people live their lives based on what they don’t want to experience, rather than living their lives from a place of choosing what they do want to experience. Consequently much of humanity does not feel responsible for their circumstances and continue to remain in a state of dis-empowerment. Fear was choosing for them and so apathy has taken hold. How has this affected our children? How likely is it that they have created new ways of behaving ‘badly’ to get our attention? When we continually drug them and silence their voices, what dis-eases will actually begin to physically manifest to make us aware of this pink elephant in the room?

Somewhere along the lines of times, confusion took hold, and we all began following the pack. We became ghosts unto our own Selves living within realities that we forgot how to question. This created an underlying perpetual state of loneliness; a pit of darkness that must be navigated and moved through. We search for the Divine spark that is buried deeply within our persona, also known as: The Compromised Victim. How can you feel anything but alone when you are living a story of victimization? How well do you think you would be able to Know others? Living this way, how are we able to accurately perceive or Know anything at all?

Q: How do you know when you have found your Truth?

A: When is the last time you changed your mind? Truth, as with anything, is a process of unfolding. Each time you consciously choose Soul alignment taking yourself beyond absently living within the previous consensus of your reality, you have found more of your True Self. The Soul Retrieval in action.

HOW DO WE EVER GET BACK TO A PLACE OF KNOWING WITHIN THE AUTHENTIC SELF?

What is your dominant intention? What actions do you choose to support this intention? Remember: Your mind will begin to co-operate with the greater consensus of that which you are. Intend wisely, align Divinely and respond authentically.

The mind is an incredible and malleable ally once we teach the ego to let go of the beliefs that create the holding patterns we dare not move beyond. We are stagnating between worlds ~ between that of the head, and that of the heart. And not aligning fully with either world leaves us in a consensus limbo. Our beliefs are programmed into the Mind Matrix, and our Authentic Self manifests as that inner longing that pulls us into our Soul Matrix. They are the constants that hold our reality firmly in place. Whenever we are triggered and therefore tested, the subconscious takes over, lowering veils around the heart so that we do not compromise the Authentic Self. It is a protection mechanism that comes from living in ‘survival mode’ which is the result of an out of balance root chakra. When we teach the ego how to see the world from different perspectives, we are releasing the resistance that keeps us in a stronghold of fear that ultimately directs the experience of our reality. So, what happens when we collapse our limiting beliefs, the actual barriers that are keeping our reality from being more fluid and liquid? What happens when we neutralize the invisible blocks that we hold within our minds? And how does our reality compensate?

Here in the physical sphere of experience, we are given the opportunity to make a quantum leap out of our pre-programmed collective fate. Once we have re-experienced contact with that Divine spark within – we have our skeleton key to true Freedom – anytime, anywhere. This is the one shining moment in the quest of life that becomes the proverbial point of no return – the moment of “The Knowing”. You only need to feel this Knowing one time. Once we experience this re-alignment with our Source, it is then a simple choice to follow that feeling, or not to. It is only by making the choice to jump when you first feel that inner fire ignite, or to talk yourself out of it based on what you have previously believed, been taught, or experienced – that will make all of the difference in what you manifest.

The rules of the game are changing and you are the one changing them for you! Our rebirth experiences do not need to be at all traumatic, although they can be. If we learn to embrace the little deaths we are creating conscious and benevolent change. When we avoid and run from them, eventually we run out of places to hide. We are here to evolve. If we delay our evolution, there comes a point where we have no other choice but to self destruct, taking ourselves out of bounds for this present experience of life. If we are stuck, the most self loving thing we can do is enlist those who have already taken these steps themselves to guide us safely through the unchartered waters of our mental and emotional confines. This is the position that the Universe has created for me, and many others. I was initiated into a place of my own authenticity through the duality of life and death. This brought me to a point of no return where I was on path and pointed into the direction of my own Authentic Self. In other words, the Universe played Big Brother with me and had it’s way.

I am here to support you as a guide, and to bring you to that one moment of Self alignment and true Knowing. You are always the pilot. I am merely the co-pilot in this moment of your life. It is through embracing this very journey myself, that I am also able to guide you through your own story, acting as a bridge for the new you to finally emerge.

Authentically Yours,
