“I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.”
These words belong to Max Planck, the theoretical physicist who originated quantum theory and won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1918. Put bluntly they say, “As consciousness, matter is derived from you.”
I know, I know. It’s probably not the way your momma described you.
This program is designed to help you absorb this concept, however, and to test it out by learning to use consciousness (yourself) to create matter (physical experience) intentionally.
In the next Shift, #15, I’m going to guide you to experience yourself as that pure consciousness. To be honest, I’m not sure why this didn’t occur to me before. When we experience ourselves beyond the labels and limits of everyday thinking, we grasp (and gasp at) what we are behind everything else. We get an inkling of our potential and our power.
Our right brains always experience ourselves as this pure awareness, which is why tuning in to’ your right brain’ is so emphasized and practiced in this program. This part of us has a direct link to who we really are and, as a result, a clear view and understanding of all the limitations that hold us back. Our right brains, once we get on board with them, can rejig any limitation to suit our evolution.
As we’ve discussed, (for example, in our last post), limitations exist within our human perception as the energy fields and emotional charges we feel. Once we grasp that all limitations exist within us, we can harness the laws of physics to alter them. Physics-wise, our limiting fields are formed by walls of electrons that seem to separate us from other things. We feel these negatively charged ‘walls’ as what they are, resistance. Notice how our usual language regarding negative emotions describe the physics perfectly.
When we consciously bring a positive intention (and therefore positive charge) to an area of negatively-charged electrons and maintain our focus there, by the simple laws of physics, the negative charge meets our intentionally positive charge and the resistance neutralizes. We begin to feel neutral…an absence of charge where a negative sensation was only moments earlier.
Often, doing this just one time with a given emotional habit initiates a permanent change within us that we can feel, measure and observe. Making a practice of this, doing it often with increasing skill and expectation leads to ever-increasing neutrality or inner peace. We gain a broader, wiser view of ourselves and our lives. We become clearer in our thinking, more intuitive and willing to act from a sense of knowing. We feel more sure and more safe in the world. As our inner limitations decrease, our goals and intentions often becoming broader and more lofty. Paradoxically, we may simultaneously become more at peace with where we are right now.
And we haven’t even touched on the benefits this deep relaxation and integration has on our physical bodies!
I offer you a video, below, to explain two concepts related to this. In the first part, I paint a picture of how we’d experience our daily moments if, rather than becoming left-brain dominant, we’d collectively leaned towards right-brain perception as our dominant perception.
The two perceptions are just so radically different.
In this program, we’re aiming to get our brain working in an integrated way. When this happens, the right brain will read situations clearly, initiate action intuitively and with deep well-being and lightness. Simultaneously, the left brain will clearly describe what’s happening and give information to help us continually tweak and course-correct.
In the second part, I explain why I describe the In Deeper Process in 5 steps. Basically, the In Deeper Process is a way to guide yourself from the awareness of a limitation you are perceiving through your left brain to freeing yourself from it – permanently- by shifting to right brain focus.
The In Deeper Process is, by no means, the only way to change your inner limitations or energy. But it is the most direct approach, one that makes sense to me based on the typical challenges experienced by many people I’ve worked with and by the sequential way my own brain works.
My intention in describing why it exists as it does in the video is so that, by understanding, you will either be able to use it more easily and effectively or, joy of joys, find a way that works better for you. (That’s actually why Play is an inherent part of the process.
Here you go. Enjoy!
See ya’ back here on Friday, Feb 7 with Shift #15.
