The Black Iron Prison and Wetiko

There is something terribly wrong in our world. The Native American people have a term – wetiko – that can really help us to contextualize and get more of a handle on the ever-unfolding catastrophe playing out all over our planet.

As my research deepens, I am continually amazed that so many different spiritual wisdom traditions, as well as creative artists, are each in their own unique ways, pointing out wetiko.

Wetiko – which can be likened to a virus of the mind – works through our unconscious blind spots, which is to say that it depends upon our unawareness of its covert operations within our own minds to keep itself in business.

There is no one definitive model that fully delineates the elusive workings of wetiko disease, but when all of these unique articulations are seen together, a deeper picture begins to get in focus that can help us to see it.

Seeing how wetiko works – both out in the world and within our own minds – is its worst nightmare, for once we see how it is playing us, its gig is up.

Recently, I have been delighted to learn that the science fiction author Philip K. Dick (henceforth PKD) was, in his own completely unique and “Philip K. Dickian” way describing wetiko – the psycho-spiritual disease that afflicts our species – to a T.

Considered to be one of the pre-eminent sci-fi writers of his – or any – time, PKD had one of the most unique, creative, unusual and original minds I have ever come across.

Way ahead of his time, he was a true visionary and seer, possibly even a prophet. To say that PKD had an unfettered imagination is an understatement of epic proportions – it is hard to imagine an imagination more unrestrained.

Continually questioning everything, he was actually a very subtle thinker whose prime concern was the question “What is reality?

Though mainly a writer of fiction, PKD didn’t consider himself a novelist, but rather, a “fictionalizing philosopher,” by which he meant that his stories – what have been called “his wacky cauldron of science fiction and metaphysics” (1) – were employed as the medium for him to formulate his perceptions.

In other words, his fiction was the way he was trying to figure out what was going on in this crazy world of ours, as well as within his own mind.

As the boundary dissolved between what was real and what wasn’t, he even wondered whether he had become a character in one of his own novels (in his own words, “I’m a protagonist from one of PKD’s books”).

Through his writing, PKD tapped into the shamanic powers of language to shape, bend and alter consciousness, thereby changing our view and experience of reality itself.
From all accounts, it is clear that PKD’s life involved deep suffering. 
His process included bungled suicide attempts, self-described psychotic episodes, psychiatric hospitalizations and abuse of drugs (he was a “speed writer,” in that most of his writing was fueled by speed – amphetamines).

We shouldn’t throw the baby out with the bathwater, however, and use these facts to invalidate his insights or dismiss the profundity of his work.

Though much of what he wrote came out of whatever extreme state he was in at the moment, he was definitely (in my opinion) plugged into something profound.

PKD was a true creative artist who, in wrestling with his demons, left us a testament that can help us illumine our own struggles.
In 1974 Dick had – at least from his point of view – an overwhelming mystical experience, which he spent the rest of his life trying to understand and integrate. He was thrown into a “crisis of revelation,” feeling an inner demand to understand what had been revealed to him.

I love that he didn’t have a fixed point of view in his inquiry, but, depending on the day, wondered whether he had become, in his words, a saint or schizophrenic.

He continually came up with new theories and viewpoints, depending upon who knows what. There is no psychiatric category yet devised that could do justice to the combination of genius and high weirdness that characterized PKD’s process.

It is clear from his philosophical writings, letters and personal journal (his “Exegesis“) that whatever it was he experienced in 1974 radically changed his whole perception of the universe and his – and our – place in it.
PKD confesses in his letters that the world has always seemed “dreamlike” to him.

To quote PKD,

“The universe could turn into a dream because in point of fact our universe is a dream.” (2)

We are asleep – in a dream state – and mistakenly think we are awake.

PKD writes in his journal,

“We are forgetful cosmocrators (i.e., rulers), trapped in a universe of our own making without our knowing it.” (3)

It is as if we are living inside of a dreamlike universe, but in our state of amnesia we have forgotten that we are the dream’s creators – the dreamers of the dream – and hence, have become trapped inside of a world that is our own creation.

As PKD points out,

“one of the fundamental aspects of the ontological category of ignorance is ignorance of this very ignorance; he not only does not know, he does not know that he does not know.” (4)

We ignore – and remain ignorant of – what PKD is pointing at to our own peril.
I imagine that if PKD were here today he would be most pleased to learn that his mind-blowing revelations were helping us to wrap our minds around the over-the-top craziness that is getting acted out in every corner of our world.

Not only precisely mapping the covert operations of the destructive aspects of wetiko, PKD offers psycho-activating insights into how to deal with its insidious workings that are novel beyond belief, insights that can therefore add to the ever-growing corpus of studies on wetiko.

Like a modern-day shaman, PKD descended into the darkness of the underworld of the unconscious and took on – and into himself – the existential madness that afflicts humanity, and in his creative articulations of his experience, is offering gifts for all the rest of us.

For this we should be most grateful.


THE BLACK IRON PRISON

We are trapped in a dream of our own making.

PKD writes,

“We are in a kind of prison but do not know it.” (5)

Becoming aware of our imprisonment, however, is the first, crucial step in becoming free of it. One of the main terms PKD coined to describe wetiko is the “Black Iron Prison” (henceforth BIP).

PKD writes,

“The BIP is a vast complex life form (organism) which protects itself by inducing a negative hallucination of it.” (6)

By negative hallucination, PKD means that instead of seeing what is not there, we cannot see what is there.

In PKD’s words,

“The criminal virus controls by occluding (putting us in a sort of half sleep)… The occlusion is self-perpetuating; it makes us unaware of it.” (7)

Being self-perpetuating, this occlusion in our consciousness will not go away of its own accord; it acts as a feedback loop (in PKD’s words, “a positive feedback on itself”) that perpetually self-generates until we manage to break its spell.

PKD writes,

“the very occlusion itself prevents us from assessing, overcoming or ever being aware of the occlusion.” (8)

An intrinsic challenge to our investigation of wetiko/BIP is that it is incarnating in and through the very psyche which itself is the means of our inquiry.

Speaking about the difficulty of seeing wetiko/BIP, PKD writes,

“we alter it by perceiving it, since we are not outside it. As our views shift, it shifts. In a sense it is not there at all.” (9)

Similar to how an image in a dream doesn’t exist separate from the mind of the dreamer, wetiko/BIP does not objectively exist, independent from the mind that is perceiving it.

In our encounter with wetiko, we find ourselves in a situation where we are confronted – practically face-to-face – with the unconscious, both its light and darker halves.
There is another problem with seeing wetiko/BIP. Because it is invisible to most people, seeing it can be an isolating experience.

When we see wetiko/BIP, we are, in PKD’s words,

“seeing what is there – but no one else does, hence no semantic sign exists to depict the entity and therefore the organism cannot continue an empathic relationship with the members of his society.

And this breakdown of empathy is double; they can’t empathize his ‘world,’ and he can’t theirs.” (10)

This points to the important role language plays in human life – it is the cardinal instrument through which individual worldviews are linked so that a shared, agreed-upon, and for all intents and purposes common reality is constructed.

Hence, creating language and finding the name – be it wetiko, the Black Iron Prison or whatever we call it – is crucial for getting a handle on this elusive mind-virus.
It is as if our species is suffering from a thought-disorder.

PKD writes,

“There is some kind of ubiquitous thinking dysfunction which goes unnoticed especially by the persons themselves, and this is the horrifying part of it: somehow the self-monitoring circuit in the person is fooled by the very dysfunction it is supposed to monitor.” (11)

When we have fallen under the spell of the wetiko virus, we aren’t aware of our affliction; from our point of view we are normal, oftentimes never feeling more ourselves (while the exact opposite is actually true; i.e., we have been taken over by something alien to ourselves).

Working through the projective tendencies of the mind, wetiko distracts us by exploiting our unconscious habitual tendency to see the source of our problems outside of ourselves.

Speaking of the BIP, PKD writes,

“We are supposed to combat it phagocyte-wise, but the very valence of the (BIP) stasis warps us into micro-extensions of itself; this is precisely why it is so dangerous.

This is the dread thing it does: extending its android thinking (uniformity) more and more extensively. It exerts a dreadful and subtle power, and more and more people fall into its field (power), by means of which it grows.” (12)

“Android thinking,” i.e., robotic, machine-like group-thinking (with no creativity programmed in), is one of the qualities of a mind taken over by wetiko/BIP.

Just as someone bit by a vampire becomes a vampire themselves, if we don’t see how wetiko/BIP works through our unconscious blind spots, it “warps us into micro-extensions of itself” such that we unwittingly become its purveyors, which is how it propagates itself in the field.

Masses are breeding grounds for this nefarious mind virus to flourish.

Wetiko/BIP is not just something that afflicts individuals – it is a collective psychosis that can only work the full power of its black magic through groups of people.

In his book The Divine Invasion, PKD has one of his characters say,

“Sometimes I think this planet is under a spell…. We are asleep or in a trance.”

Along similar lines, in his Exegesis, PKD writes,

“We got entangled in enchantment, a gingerbread cottage that beguiled us into enslavement and ruin…we are not merely enslaved, we are trapped.” (13)

As if living within a mythic or fairy tale-like reality, our species is under a bewitchment – a seeming curse – of massive proportions.

Contemplating “the basic condition of life,” PKD writes that each one of us will,

“be required to violate your own identity…this is the curse at work, the curse that feeds on all life.” (14)

This curse that feeds on life is another name for wetiko/BIP. Thankfully, in his writings PKD gives us clues regarding how to break out of this curse.

We can’t break out of the curse, however, without first shedding light on the nature of the darkness we have fallen into that is informing the curse.

Giving a precise description of how wetiko/BIP works, PKD writes,

“This is a sinister life form indeed.

First it takes power over us, reducing us to slaves, and then it causes us to forget our former state, and be unable to see or to think straight, and not to know we can’t see or think straight, and finally it becomes invisible to us by reason of what it has done to us.

We cannot even monitor our own deformity, our own impairment.” (15)

A complex and seemingly malevolent life form, wetiko/BIP works through the cover of the unconscious, rendering itself invisible to our conscious awareness. It feeds off of and into our unawareness of it.

Further elaborating the BIP, PKD writes,

“It can not only affect our percept systems directly but can alter our memories.” (16)

We become convinced that our – i.e., “its” – memories are objectively real, therefore feeding into the self-limiting and self-defeating narrative the virus wants us to believe about ourselves.

We then tell stories – both to others as well as ourselves – about who we are and what happened to us in the past to make us this way in a manner that reifies us into a solidified identity.

In The Divine Invasion, PKD has a character say,

“something causes us to see what it wants us to see and remember and think what it wants us to remember and think.”

Are these the ravings of a paranoid madman, or insights of someone who is seeing through the illusion, snapping out of the spell and waking up?

PKD writes,

“It is as if the immune system has failed to detect an invader, a pathogen (shades of William Burroughs: a criminal virus!).

Yes, the human brain has been invaded, and once invaded, is occluded to the invasion and the damage resulting from the invasion.

It has now become an instrument for the pathogen: it winds up serving as its slave, and thus the ‘heavy metal speck’ (i.e., the BIP) is replicated (spread through linear and lateral time, and through space).” (17)

The mind invaded becomes an unwitting channel for the pathogen to further propagate and spread itself in and through the field.

To quote PKD,

“We may not be what we seem even to ourselves.” (18)

Wetiko/BIP is a shape-shifting bug; it cloaks itself in and assumes our form, impersonating us such that we then identify with its limited and impoverished version of who we are while we simultaneously dissociate from – and forget – who we actually are.

Wetiko/BIP is in competition with us for a share of our own mind; it literally does everything it can to think in our place, sit in our seat and occupy – and possess – our very selves.

Speaking of this very situation, PKD writes,

“A usurper is on the throne.” (19)

Having no creativity on its own, once wetiko “puts us on,” i.e., fools us into buying into its version of who we are, it can then piggyback onto and plug into our intrinsic creativity, co-opting our creative imagination to serve its malevolent agenda.

PKD writes,

“Being without psyche of its own it slays the authentic psyches of those creatures locked into it, and replaces them with a spurious microform of its own dead psyche.” (20)

Sometimes using the phrase the “Black Iron Prison Police State” (which is mirrored externally in the ever-increasing “police state” of the world), PKD also describes this state as one where the person so afflicted becomes “frozen” (as in trauma), in a “corpse-state” (i.e., spiritually dead).

Wetiko/BIP can be conceived of as a cancer of the psyche that slowly metastasizes, gradually subsuming all of the healthy parts of the psyche into itself to serve its sinister agenda.

Speaking of the part of the psyche that has been captured by the BIP, PKD comments,

“This section died. It became fossilized, and merely repeats itself. This is scary; it is like mental illness:

‘one day nothing new ever entered his mind – and the last thought just recirculated endlessly.’

Thus death rules here…

The BIP is the form of this death, its embodiment – of what is wrong, here.” (21)

Like a vampire, wetiko/BIP is – and turns us into – one of the undead; it is death taking on living human form so as to take life.

Wetiko/BIP, like a virus, is “dead” matter, it is only in a living creature that viruses acquire a “quasi-life.” When we fall under wetiko’s spell, our life-force and God-given creativity become vampirically drained, as we are bled dry of what really counts.

Commenting on the BIP, PKD continues,

“To see it is to see the ailment, the complex which warps all other thoughts to it.” (22)

To see the BIP is to begin to heal it; there is no healing it without first seeing it.

Once wetiko/BIP entrenches itself within a psyche, however, the personality then becomes one-sided, self-organizing an outer display of coherence around this pathogenic core, which masks the inner dysfunction, making it hard to recognize.

In a psychic coup d’état, the wetiko bug can usurp and displace a person – or a group of people – who become its puppet and marionette.

To quote PKD,

“We’re a fucking goddam ‘Biosphere’ ruled by an entity who – like a hypnotist – can make us not only quack like a duck on cue, but imagine, to boot, that we wanted (decided) to quack.” (23)

PKD comments that when,

“we begin to see what formerly was concealed to us, or from us, and the shock is great, since we have, all our lives, been trading (doing business) with evil.” (24)

This is one of the reasons it is so hard to see wetiko/BIP – there is a counterincentive built into seeing it, as we have to be strong enough to bear the trauma of seeing our own collusion with darkness.

If we choose to look away from how the BIP occludes us and become resistant to bringing awareness to the nature of our situation, we are then being unconsciously complicit in our own imprisonment.

To quote PKD,

“So there was a base collusion between us and the BIP: it was a kind of pact!” (25)

He conjectures,

“we’re sources of psychic/psychological energy to it: we help power it.” (26)

As if we are in a double-bind with no exit, PKD points out that,

“the enslaved people cannot be rescued by departing the Empire (the BIP) because the Empire is worldwide.” (27)

Existing within the collective unconscious itself, wetiko/BIP/Empire is ubiquitous; being nonlocal it can’t be located within the third-dimensional space-time matrix, and yet, there is no place where it is not.

Its very root – as well as the medium through which it operates – is the psyche, which is somehow able to inform, extend itself and give shape to events in our world.

To think that the ultimate source of the horrors that are playing out in our world is to be found somewhere other than within the human psyche is to be truly dis-oriented, i.e., looking in the wrong direction.
PKD writes,

“The very doctrine of combating the ‘hostile world and its power’ has to a large extent been ossified by and put at the service of the Empire.” (28)

In fighting the seeming demonic power of wetiko/BIP/Empire, we are playing its game and have already lost, as it feeds off of polarization.

PKD warns that,

“the BIP warps every new effort at freedom into the mold of further tyranny.” (29)

Even our thoughts regarding how to solve the BIP only “fuel” the seeming reality of the BIP.

The Empire/BIP/wetiko will subvert every attempt at shedding light on its darkness in such a way as to feed the very darkness we are trying to illumine. And yet, if we don’t fight it, then we have no chance.

What are we to do?

PKD opines,

“The idea is to break the BIP’s power by revealing more and more about it.” (30)

Just as a vampire loses its power in the light of day, wetiko/BIP has no power in the light of conscious awareness.

To quote PKD,

“The Empire is only a phantasm, lingering because we have gone to sleep.” (31)

It is as if the Empire/BIP/wetiko is an after-image that we have mistaken for being real; PKD refers to it as a “deceitful corpse” that apes life.

The idea is to shed light on darkness – what good is seeing the light if our vision doesn’t illumine the darkness?

The Gnostic text The Gospel of Philip says,

“So long as the root of wickedness is hidden, it is strong. But when it is recognized, it is dissolved. When it is revealed, it perishes… It is powerful because we have not recognized it.”

(II, 3, 83.5-30.)


FAKE FAKES

Wetiko/BIP can be likened to an “anti-information” virus – not only does it block the reception of information, but it substitutes false information for the real thing.

PKD writes,

“the bombardment of pseudo-realities begins to produce inauthentic humans very quickly (in his words ‘spurious humans’).” (32)

PKD writes of the BIP,

“it has grown vine-like into our information media; it is an information life form.” (33)

It is an info life form (composed of and creating living dis-information) that lies to us – PKD compares this to the figure of Satan, who is “the liar.”

Wetiko/BIP has co-opted the mainstream, corporatized media to be its propaganda organ, which becomes its instrument for creating – and delivering into our minds – fictitious realities.

These institutions have, to quote PKD,

“an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind. I ought to know. I do the same thing. It is my job to create universes.” (34)

PKD was intensely interested in what makes an authentic human being.

He continues,

“Fake realities will produce fake humans. Or, fake humans will produce fake realities and then sell them to other humans, turning them, eventually, into forgeries of themselves.” (35)

An authentic human being, on the other hand, to quote PKD,

“cannot be compelled to be what they are not.” (36)

He elaborates,

“The power of spurious realities battering at us today – these deliberately manufactured fakes never penetrate to the heart of true human beings.” (37)

Wetiko/BIP has no creativity on its own, but is a master of imitation – it apes, mimes and impersonates both our world and ourselves, such that, if we identify with its version of the way things are, we have then given ourselves away.

Succinctly stating the problem, PKD writes,

“The problem is that a mock creation has filtered in, which must be transubstantiated into the real.” (38)

Our universe is a collectively shared dream or hallucination that appears real.

In PKD’s words,

“our reality is a cunning counterfeit, mutually shared.” (39)

To imbue our world with an intrinsic, objective reality that exists separate from the mind that is observing it would be, in PKD’s words,

“a dreadful intellectual error.”

Pointing directly at wetiko/BIP, PKD writes that,

“there is a vast life form here, that has invaded this world and is camouflaged.” (40)

He marvels at how it camouflages itself; in PKD’s words, it,

“simulated normal objects and their processes so as to copy them and in such an artful way as to make himself (the BIP) invisible within them.” (41)

Through its mimicry of real phenomenal objects, the BIP, in PKD’s words,

“steadily, stealthily replaces them and mimics – assumes their form.” (42)

Though PKD’s writings appear “out there,” and can easily sound crazy, paranoid and conspiratorial, it should be pointed out that what he is pointing at is exactly what an apocryphal text of the Bible is referring to when it speaks of a “counterfeiting spirit.” (43)

PKD has articulated wetiko’s/BIP’s counterfeiting ability – and how the universe responds – in a way that only he can.

He has realized that the very ground of being itself – PKD refers to it by various names – Christ, God, the Savior, the Urgrund (a German term used by both Meister Eckhart and Jacob Boehme to describe ultimate reality) – is responding to wetiko/BIP in a very unique and revelatory way.

As the BIP mimes reality so as to create a counterfeit of the real thing, the ground of reality, in PKD’s words, “counterfeits the counterfeit.”

In PKD’s words,

“So originally the bogus info mimicked the actual successfully enough to fool us, and now we have a situation in which the actual has returned in a form mimicking the bogus.” (44)

Wetiko/BIP has created an illusory, fake world, and the ground of being itself, in a radically new ontological category that PKD calls a “fake fake,” has imitated the imitation.

Delighted by this new idea, PKD asks the question,

“Is a fake fake more fake than just a fake, or null-fake?” (45)

In other words, if a fake fake is not more fake than a fake, is it the real thing?

PDK’s idea of a fake fake is cognate to the indeterminacy between originals and simulacra that is the hallmark of the world of virtual reality.

To quote PKD,

“A fake fake = something real.

The demiurge (the false God in Gnosticism) unsuccessfully counterfeited the pleroma, and now God/the Savior is mimicking this counterfeit cosmos with a stealthily growing real one.” (46)

In other words, God/the ground of being is assimilating our seemingly counterfeit universe into and as itself.

Writing about the Savior, PKD writes that,

“it doesn’t want its adversary to know it’s here, so it must disguise (randomize) its presence, including by giving out self discrediting information; as if mimicking a hoax.” (47)

Just like the BIP tricks us into identifying with its world, the true ground of being tricks the BIP by surreptitiously imitating and becoming it; i.e., taking it on (and into itself).

It doesn’t want to let the BIP know it is doing this, which would defeat the purpose of its counter-ploy; the Savior does its mimicry on the sly. PKD comments,

“The Urgrund does not advertise to the artifact (i.e., wetiko/BIP) that it is here.” (48)

Just as the BIP works through our blind spots, the ground of being works through the BIP’s blind spots. PKD comments,

“the artifact is as occluded as to the nature and existence of the Urgrund as we are to the artifact.” (49)

Like an underground resistance movement, the Urgrund’s activities, in PKD’s words,

“resemble the covert advance of a secret, determined revolution against a powerful tyranny.” (50)

Speaking of Christ as another reference for the ground of being, Dick writes,

“Through him the properly functioning (living and growing) total brain replicated itself here in microform (seed-like) thereafter branching out farther and farther like a vine, a viable life form taking up residence within a dead, deranged and rigid one (BIP).

It is the nature of the rigid region to seek to detect and ensnare him, but his discorporate plasmatic nature ensures his escape from the intended imprisonment.” (51)

In other words, the spirit can’t be pinned down.

In PKD’s words,

“He is everywhere and nowhere.” (52)

Describing this deeper process of how the ground of being potentially saves us – and itself – from wetiko/BIP, PKD comments,

“a criminal entity (BIP) has been invaded by life giving cells (Christ, God, the Urgrund) which it can’t detect, and so it accepts them into itself, replacing the ‘iron’ ones.” (53)

PKD is describing transubstantiation in the flesh. Speaking of the savior, PKD writes,

“like a gas (plasma) he begins invisibly to expand and fill up the whole of BIP.” (54)

What I so appreciate about PKD’s vision is that he’s not just describing the life-destroying workings of wetiko/BIP, but he’s also articulating the other half of this process, which is the response from the living intelligence of the universe as a whole.

To quote PKD,

“The key to everything lies in understanding this mimicking living stuff.” (55)

PKD equates this “form-mimicker” with the Deus Absconditus, the dark and hidden God.

The idea is that God reveals Itself through its darker half.

This makes me think how the unconscious responds to a one-sided situation in our psychic lives by sending compensatory forms – like symbols in a dream – so as to bring us back into balance.

To quote PKD,

“If the universe is a brain the BIP is a rigid ossified complex, and Zebra (another of PKD’s names for the savior) is metabolic toxin (living info) designed to melt it out of existence by restoring elasticity to it, which means to cause it to cease recirculating the same thought over and over again.” (56)

Seen psychologically, the BIP is a rigidified complex which has developed an autonomy and has gone rogue, seemingly having an independent life and a will of its own that is antithetical to and at odds with our own.

In psychological-speak, until this “autonomous complex” (what indigenous people refer to as a “demon”) is dissolved and rejoins the wholeness of the psyche, “the organism,” to quote PKD,

“is stuck in its cycle, in cybernetic terms; it won’t kick over – which fits with my idea that we are memory coils which won’t kick over and discharge their contents.” (57)

We are like malfunctioning memory coils in a quasi-dream state.

In PKD’s words,

“we are an impaired section of the megamind.” (58)

These contemplations helped PKD to contextualize, and hopefully integrate his overwhelming spiritual experience of 1974.

He writes that his experience is,

“an achievement by the Urgrund in reaching its objective of reflecting itself back to itself, using me as a point of reflection.” (59)

In other words, PKD realized that we are all potentially reflecting mirrors for the divine ground of being to wake up to itself.

This is to say that we play a crucial role in the deeper archetypal process of the Incarnation of the deity.

PKD writes in his journal,

“Perhaps the transformation of and in me in 3-74 (i.e., March, 1974) was when this mimicking ‘plasma’ reached me and replaced me – although I appeared outwardly the same (i.e., my essence changed – a new self replaced the old)… my ‘me’ was covertly replaced by a greater other ‘me’ I’d never seen or known before.” (60)

This greater self that replaced PKD’s ego goes by many names: the greater personality, the Self, our true nature, Buddha nature and Christ, to name but a few.

PKD writes,

“A human can evolve into Christ if Christ ignites his own self in the human and takes the human over (61)… it is at the moment of when the ultimate blow (of pain, murderous injury, humiliation and death) is struck, it is Christ who is there, replacing the victim and taking the blow himself.

This is what happened to me in 3-74.” (62)

He continues,

“So flight from suffering inexorably involves a flight from life (reality)…

But the secret, mysterious opposite from this is a full facing of suffering – a non-flinching – that can lead to a magic alchemy: suddenly it is you/suddenly it is Christ/so you must equal (be) Christ.” (63)

In psychological speak, the “genuine suffering” (to use Jung’s words) that PKD went through enabled him to withdraw his unconscious projections from an outward historical or metaphysical figure and wake up the Christ within himself.

In other words, he was able to introject this sacred figure, i.e., realize that Christ (i.e., the Self) lived in him and was not an external figure separate and different from himself. (64)

DREAMLIKE COSMOLOGY

According to PKD’s cosmology, it is as if God the creator has allowed himself to become captured, enslaved by and hostage to his own creation.

PKD writes,

“He, the living, is at the mercy of the mechanical. The servant has become the master, and the master the servant.” (65)

PKD’s words have a particular ring of truth in this technological age of ours, where many people think that one of the greatest dangers that faces humanity is that AI (artificial intelligence) can potentially enslave its human creators.

PKD continues,

“But the artifact is teaching him, painfully, by degrees, over thousands of years, to remember – who he is and what he is. The servant-become-master is attempting to restore the master’s lost memories and hence his true identity.” (66)

PKD’s contemplations shed light on what might be the hidden purpose of the emergence of wetiko/BIP in our world. PKD comments,

“The artifact enslaves us, but on the other hand it is attempting to teach us to throw off its enslavement.” (67)

Wetiko/BIP tests us so as to make sure that we will make optimal use of our divine endowment. As PKD points out, the fundamental dialectic at work is liberation vs. enslavement.

Here’s what I wrote in Dispelling Wetiko,

“Wetiko literally demands that we step into our power and become resistant to its oppression such that we discover how to step out of bondage and become free, or else!” (68)

In a sense wetiko/BIP is the guardian of the threshold of our evolution…

PKD has created a parable in which a fallen and amnesiac God has fallen prey to Its own creation and is in need of redemption. Lest we think that PKD’s cosmological imaginings are the ravings of a madman, it should be pointed out that his theories are fully resonant with those found in the profound wisdom traditions of,

  • Alchemy

  • Gnosticism

  • Kabbalah

  • Christianity

Evoking “Christ as the salvator salvandus,” PKD writes of,

“the savior who must be saved and who is in a certain real sense identical with those he saves.” (69)

In PKD’s words,

“The creator can afford to descend into his own creation. He can afford to shed his memories (of his identity) and his supernatural powers…

The creator deliberately plants clues in his irreal creation – clues which he cunningly knows in time (eventually) will restore his memory (anamnesis) of who he is…

So he has a fail-safe system built in. No chance he won’t eventually remember.

Makes himself subject to spurious space, time and world (and death, pain, loss, decay, etc.), but has these disinhibiting clues or stimuli distributed deliberately strategically in time and space.

So it is he himself who sends himself the letter which restores his memory (Legend of the Pearl).

No fool he!” (70)

It is as if we, or more accurately, our true identity as the Self (which is whole and connected with the whole) plants alarm clocks in the waking dream – what PKD calls “a perturbation in the reality field” – that are set to go off at just the right time, acting as a catalyst to wake us up.

In PKD’s words,

“The megamind is attempting to stimulate us back to being in touch with itself.” (71)

Once these clues – which can be conceived of as a higher dimension of our being signaling to us – are deciphered, we can discover, as PKD suggests, that we’ve composed them ourselves.

What PKD calls “disinhibiting clues” (what he also calls “Logos triggering agents,” and what I call “lucidity stimulators”) are like keys that open up the lock encasing our minds so that we can remember who we are and our life’s mission, i.e., what we are here to do.

PKD writes,

Zebra is trying to find – reach – us and make us aware of it – more primarily, it seeks to free us from the BIP, to break the BIP’s power over us.” (72)

Our classical, materialist mechanistic worldview is, as PKD rightfully points out,

“shabby and cracking apart and fading away.” (73)

PKD writes that there is a,

“universe lying behind ours, concealed within – yes, actually concealed within ours!” (74)

The universe we see simultaneously conceals and reveals the universe lying behind ours.

It is PKD’s opinion that in order to construct a new worldview to replace the one that is cracking apart, we need to see – to re-cognize – the universe concealed within ours.

“The world is not merely counterfeit,” PKD writes, “there is more: it is counterfeit, but under it lies another world, and it is this other world, this Logos world, which filters or breaks through.” (75)

He continues,

“But in truth, in very truth, this is a shadow universe we see, a reflection in the mirror of another universe behind it, and that other universe can be reached by an individual directly, without the help of any priest.” (76)

This other universe – a universe that we are not separate from and is not separate from our consciousness – doesn’t need an external mediator to be accessed, but can be reached through direct experience.

I call this other, higher-dimensional world that underlies and is concealed within ours (borrowing a term from physics) the “nonlocal field,” which is a field that contains, pervades and expresses itself through our third-dimensional world (while at the same time not being constrained by the third-dimensional laws of space and time).

The nonlocal field connects us with everything.

When the nonlocal field, or in PKD’s words, the “Logos world” breaks through consensus reality and reveals itself are when we experience synchronicities – what physicist F. David Peat calls “‘flaws’ in the fabric of reality.”

Synchronistic phenomena are, in Peat’s words,

“momentary fissures that allow us a brief glimpse of the immense and unitary order underlying all of nature.”

Just like the BIP/artifact/Empire/wetiko will co-opt and subvert any of our attempts at illumining it to feed into and serve its nefarious agenda, God/Christ/Zebra/Urgrund/Savior will use the BIP/artifact/Empire/wetiko’s attempts at imprisonment to ultimately serve our freedom.

Speaking of the artifact’s agenda of,

“enslavement, deception and spiritual death” PKD writes, “even this is utilized by the Urgrund, which utilizes everything, (this) is a sacred secret.” (77)

PKD points out that one way of expressing the fundamental dialectic is information vs. anti-information (remember: wetiko is an anti-information virus).

To quote PKD,

“The Empire, which by suppressing information is therefore in a sense the anti-Christ, is put to work as half of the dialectic; Christ uses everything (as was revealed to me): in its very act of suppressing information, the Empire aids in the building of the soma of the Cosmic Christ (which the Empire does not realize).” (78)

This is to say that the Cosmic Christ is, in essence, generated by its antithesis (the anti-Christ).

This brings to mind Goethe’s masterpiece Faust, in which Faust asks Mephistopheles (who represents the devil) who he is, and Mephistopheles replies that he is the,

“part of that force which would do evil, yet forever works the good.”

It is a Kabbalistic idea that, though at cross purposes to the good at its core, evil is the very condition and foundation of the highest good’s very realization.


BODHISATTVIC MADNESS

A collective psychosis, wetiko is a psycho-spiritual disease of the soul that pervades the collective unconscious of humanity.

To quote PKD,

“The only question is, which kind of madness will we choose?… We are, then, all mad, but I, uniquely, choose to go mad while facing pain, not mad while denying pain.” (79)

PKD is delineating two different ways of facing the pain of reality; in his writings he makes it clear that his (“non-flinching”) way of facing pain isn’t necessarily better, it just “hurts more.”

PKD writes,

“In a very real sense the pain we feel as living creatures is the pain of waking up… the pressure of this pain motivates us to seek an answer; which is to say, motivates us toward greater and greater consciousness.” (80)

PKD is professing a point of view that can help us to recontextualize what seems to be meaningless suffering; one of the things that’s hardest for human beings to bear are experiences bereft of meaning.

“The artifact,” PKD explains, speaking of and from his own experience, “by inflicting too much pain on me it had, in a certain real sense, awakened me.” (81)

In his novel Valis, PKD writes,

“It is sometimes an appropriate response to reality to go insane.”

PKD writes,

“My insanity, facing an insane world, is, paradoxically, a facing of reality, and this is sane; I refuse to close my eyes and ears.” (82)

Paradoxically, PKD’s form of insanity is the most sane response of all. PKD wonders,

“Perhaps if you know you are insane you are not insane.” (83)

He elaborates,

“The distinction between sanity and insanity is narrower than a razor’s edge, sharper than a hound’s tooth, more agile than a mule deer. It is more elusive than the merest phantom. Perhaps it does not even exist; perhaps it is a phantom.” (84)

Never one to shy away from the tough questions, PKD asks,

“So, then, in what sense am I insane? I am insane in that I continue to face the truth without the ability to come up with a workable answer…

I really do not know anything in terms of the solution; I can only state the problem. No other thinker has ever stated a problem and so miserably failed to solve it in human histories; human thought is, basically, problem-solving, not problem stating.” (85)

I personally don’t think PKD is giving himself enough credit.

For in fact, it is clear in his writings that he did come up with a “workable answer,” one that is universal and is common to all wisdom traditions. PKD likened our existential situation to being in a maze, what he refers to as,

“one colossal and absolute Chinese finger trap.”

The harder we try to get out, the more trapped we become; this is to say that we are not able to find our way out through ordinary means.

Seemingly alive and sentient, the maze has a peculiar nature of shifting as we become aware of it. It is as if it is aware of – and responds to – our awareness of it.

One only escapes from the maze, to quote PKD,

“when he decides voluntarily to return (to resubject himself to the power of the maze) for the sake of these others, still in it.

That is, you can never leave alone, to leave you must elect to take the others out… the ultimate paradox of the maze, its quintessential ingenuity of construction, is that the only real way out is a voluntary way back in (into it and its power), which is the path of the bodhisattva.” (86)

We would only voluntarily return to help others if we recognized that they are not separate from ourselves, which is to realize that we are all interdependent and interconnected – which is the very realization that simultaneously enlivens compassion and dissolves wetiko.

PKD writes,

“when you think you are out of the maze – i.e., saved – you are in fact still in it.” (87)

This brings to mind the insight that if we think we are free of wetiko and it is only “others” that are afflicted with it, this very perspective is, paradoxically, a symptom of having fallen under the spell of wetiko.

To quote PKD,

“If there is to be happiness it must come in a voluntary relinquishing of self in exchange for aware participation in the destiny of the total one.” (88)

In a very real sense, PKD did find the solution to humanity’s existential dilemma.

He writes,

“compassion’s highest power is the only power capable of solving the maze.” (89)

As PKD points out,

“The true measure of a man is not his intelligence or how high he rises in this freak establishment. No, the true measure of a man is this: how quickly can he respond to the needs of others and how much of himself he can give.” (90)

In other words, the true measure of who we are is how much we are able to love.

PKD concludes,

“If the final paradox of the maze is that the only way you can escape it is voluntarily to go back in (into it), then maybe we are here voluntarily; we came back in.” (91)

In other words, perhaps we have chosen to incarnate at this very moment in time, i.e., our voluntary return to the maze has already happened (evidenced by the simple fact of our incarnation), which is to say that we have already solved the maze and simply have to recognize this fact.

This is true anamnesis – a loss of forgetfulness – which is a remembering, a recollection of our dissociated members, as we re-member our rightful place as part of a greater whole, connected with all that is.

“Anamnesis,” to quote PKD from a 1976 interview, “was the loss of amnesia. You remembered your origins, and they were from beyond the stars.” (92)

Some Benefits of Living Outside your Comfort Zone

What we refer to as our ‘comfort zone’ is the space in which we feel comfortable, and in control.
You might also call it the ‘control zone’. When we move outside of it, or push its borders, we can feel anxious, uneasy and unsafe, without the familiarity of knowing we have our knowledge, skills and experience to back us up.
Stepping outside can feel like there is no safety net anymore, and that anything can happen.

The challenge is this:
It feels unsafe to lose control, to be on rocky ground. But on the outside of this zone, magic happens. So long as we want to grow and learn, we will want a piece of it.
Let’s call this the ‘learning zone’.
Being a little anxious keeps us alert and awake, and therefore sharpens all our senses.
If you speak to any successful performer, athlete or speaker, they will tell you how they have pushed this anxiety limit all the way to the top.

How you feel about your entire life will tell you a great deal about how comfortable you are.
It might not be what you would expect, but when you are unsatisfied, you are most likely also comfortable. But living a life filled with routines that keep you doing the same thing every day, waiting for Friday to show up, is not a fulfilling one.
You might feel comfortable at best, but not fulfilled.
To a thriving enthusiast, however, Friday is just another day of the week, and no week looks the same. But inside the comfort zone, there’s order and continuity, repetitions and structure.
The safety net is clearly visible…

Nevertheless, structure can be a powerful tool. Healthy habits can create some great groundwork from which we may operate in safety and comfort.
For example, I would not want to step outside my perfectly planned environment for writing any of my books, nor would I spend the time I set aside for silence and gratitude to be anything but calm and safe.
But, when I am looking for growth and learning, I always challenge myself.
It makes perfect sense that a new perspective, a new skill and a new mindset has to come from stretching outside of familiarity and certainty – that anything new must come from a new perspective.
And in the same way, new learning is easier to accomplish where you are more alert and on point. The comfort zone might sound pleasant enough, and at times it will be, but even though we feel comfortable we might be hurting ourselves. As with false beliefs and the resistance to change, we can easily be held back from growth opportunities by our own pain and suffering.
How sweet it is to wallow in our own sorrow, and to be comfortably able to say ‘no’ to anything that will take our focus from our truth.

The more and longer we stay within our zone, the smaller it tends to get, and the harder it is to step outside. We get even more comfortable, lazy and cluttered with false beliefs.
As it shrinks, the further away the magic learning and growing zone will feel.
The wall gets higher, and harder to climb. This invisible wall that we have built, with the help from some friends and the good old programming. A lifelong project in the making, from shying away from uncertainty, and believing the crap about not being good enough, smart enough or boss enough.

What a hoax…!

We are all expansion and flowering material. If we choose to stay strapped to our comfort, we will never find our true potentials, and never experience what we’re capable of achieving.
Any learning happens outside that zone. Whenever you start anything new, like a hobby, learn a new language, take up a new sport, or start a new job, you are operating outside your safety zone…

Becoming more of who you really, truthfully are, requires stretching and bending. Limits must be pushed. Comfortable has to step aside for uncomfortable. Uneasy has to do for a while, and the safety net will have to go.

This is not about jumping off a cliff, or doing something far from your interest or calling, on the contrary, it is about moving closer to your passions and your purpose.
Although stepping somewhat out of character now and then will build some muscle, this is about stretching to grow more into who you already are. Like polishing that diamond, and learning your most hidden potentials.
Stretching is most often not extreme, it is more like a widening of the horizon.

The comfort zone will grow in the process.

Here are 8 Side Effects of Zone-Free Living

You will realize that fear is overrated.

The most common statement that follows having done something scary and seemingly risky, is,
“Had I known it was going to be this easy or go so well, I would have done it years ago.”
The fear itself is often what we are most afraid of.

The false belief that fear is something we should run from will also change, as you realize that the world did not come to an end, and nobody died.
You will grow beyond belief.
Nothing is more empowering than conquering some longs standing obstacles.
Be it the resistance to take the leap towards starting a health regime, moving house or starting your own business. Maybe you want to sell everything you own, to start a life journey of travelling the world, or you simply want to ask someone that you really like, out on a date.
It does not matter, you will grow, and your horizon will broaden. The first step is always the hardest one, but it will promote the hunger for more. As your comfort zone grows, or as you let go of the zone all together, growth becomes constant.

A seed has been panted.

Now, all you’ve got to do is water and nourish it.
You will become your own boss.
The position was always ours, although we so easily give it away, or try to give it away. We talk about taking back our power, as if it was ever gone.
I don’t believe it ever was. It sure does feel like it is taken back, but it was always there, although hidden or suppressed. It becomes easy to hide behind someone else’s flaws and shortcomings, when we feel small and inferior in our own lives.

Ultimately, you have always been the one that you have been waiting for.

You have always been what you have been searching for, but now it will become even clearer to you, and feel more How empowering and inspiring!
You will get more enthusiastic and lose the regrets.

There are several sayings in this direction of thought.
“It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all”, or “It is better to have tried and failed, than to regret not trying.”
I strongly believe in this to be very true.
The enthusiasm that arises from stepping onto new ground, while realizing that your life is better for it, is contagious. It will easily encourage you to stretch more, and to get to know yourself even better.
We will never regret having tried, once we see the benefits that it will give us.
Discomfort becomes a path to success.
The whole concept of comfort changes. Why is it that for some, comfort is the absolute hiding place, yet for others, it is the plague they fear more than anything?

There are base jumpers and extreme sport enthusiasts that put their lives on the line every single day.

They shy away from what feels like confinement and lack of true feelings. They chase the high from living on the edge. Like a drug, they crave the adrenaline rush that they experience from stretching to their limit. They literally get high.

This is the other side of the pendulum, the extreme hunger for more, never seeming to get satisfied.
It can become an addiction. While the term discomfort has different meanings for different people, in the light of comfort zones, we know going outside can feel painful.
Therefore, the training and practicing of stretching, will condition us to recognize even discomfort as something valuable.
You will feel less anxiety and stress.
How can doing something that might push you into anxiety and stress, help you? I was almost paralyzed by anxiety for several years. From being physically debilitated, I suffered greatly on every level.

Physical, mental and emotional are all one, connected through our energetics, organs and glands. By walking through your fire, you will break free from the hold that any anxiety has on you.
By stepping outside your zone, you will feel empowered to take care of your health on every level. It will benefit the rest of your life.
No stressful live is ever a healthy one.
You will inspire others.

People are always looking for guidance and direction. By living your truth and growing as a person, you will become a powerful inspiration to those around you.

We tend to look towards those who have done what we seek to achieve. Your life will be fulfilled with a new joy from influencing others to also take a leap of faith. To be able to be a way-shower and a mentor.

One of the greatest blessings of my life is to be able to inspire others.
You will need no one’s approval ever again.

You will be done searching for validation. What a relief! You have experienced firsthand that it is all up to you. Not to do alone, but to take charge of You know that you are enough, that you can try anything without being afraid of failure.

You know that success and magic happens outside the comfort zone. Your zone just took a hike, as you stepped up and claimed your seat.

You are limitless and your everyday life will reflect on that.

“If you ever want to experience
and achieve anything out of the ordinary,
that will reflect your true potentials,
step outside the zone.”
Hilde Larsen

Incorporate a zone-free life where stretching is a part of your growth and bullshit-free living.

Play in all areas of your possibilities, and let no anxiety, or perceived zone of the masses, hold you back from your amazingness and extraordinaire.

Once the illusion that you have anything to fear by feeling a bit uncomfortable or anxious at times is gone, you are truly free to live.

Our lives are not confined by any rules that hold back our creative and passionate exploration. They are all illusionary and false. Take back your boldness and step onto your stage.

To expand through your everyday living, start by changing some of your routines. Break a habit, and look for other, and maybe even better ways to do things. If you are usually sedentary, move more.

Get away from the computer or the TV, and find some activities to get you moving. If you are very active, always in motion running around, unwind, take a load of.

Relax and be more still. Take some “me” time. If you are shy, get out more, and if you don’t like to be alone, practice. Read more books. Reading what others are saying and have experienced can be uplifting and inspiring.

Knowledge is power, and by knowing better we can do better.

Go out dancing and shake it up. Be more childish, and tell more jokes. The next time you go to a restaurant, try something you have never had before. Help someone in need, or volunteer at a shelter or a soup kitchen.

Count your blessings and serve at the same time.

Sing a little louder, walk longer, aim higher and dance more often. Smile wider, laugh louder, invest more truthfully and love unconditionally.

Step out of any false belief that you are less than magnificent, and stay humble for the opportunities that unfold in front of you.

We often care too much, about outcomes, about others, and about our own lack of ability. Care a little less about the things that matter the least.

Nothing is standing between you and your ability to just not give a damn…

CIA Docs Reveal Black Budget “Project Star Gate”

The CIA has published online nearly 13 million pages of declassified records, including papers on the US role in overthrowing foreign governments, but some of the most mind blowing information is in reference to the secret ‘Star Gate’ telepathy project. The details of CIA’s “Project Star Gate” are riveting, and expose uncharted waters to be researched as far as there is virtually no mainstream science or pop culture awareness of the phenomena exposed in the project – and is often ridiculed as the stuff of science fiction. The revelations come as part of a massive almost 13 million file dump of declassified reports – that are now available on the internet for the first time.
 Project Star Gate, was the code name for a CIA project that attempted to harness what until now has been thought of as “supernatural” or psychic abilities for military and intelligence use – noting in some of the documents that the method was “passive,” “inexpensive,” and that there was “no known defense.” The papers show how the CIA was attempting to harness these abilities in individuals to spy on people and alter important objects, amongst other abilities. One of the processes described, called “Psychoenergetics,” described a “mental process” where a person can “view,” “communicate,” or alter objects that are located in different space or time away from the subject. It also describes things such as remote viewing, where people can see objects that are located in another place, as well as telekenisis, which is the ability for someone to move objects they are not physically in contact with.
 The declassified files suggest that CIA officials in charge of Project Stargate believed that they had some success utilizing and harnessing these amazing extrasensory abilities, but noted perceived limitations. Reports reveal that remote viewing was to only be used to collect information in conjunction with other methods, and that intelligence gained through remote viewing “should not stand alone.”
Project Stargate was officially concluded in in 1995, when the existence of the program was declassified, with the CIA reporting that it hadn’t proven useful enough and that previous results that seemed to show the veracity of telepathic powers had been doctored.
 The length of time the project was acknowledged to be in existence, nearly 20 year, suggests that it the results of the project were promising enough to keep funding it to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars over two decades. The idea that the program simply became public in 1995, and was ended after 20 years, is a naïve proposition. There is great likelihood that the program was simply rolled over into another Special Access Black Budget Program (SAPs) – meaning that all of the information and findings within these programs remains secret and unknown to the mainstream world. From these (SAPS) we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are commonly referred to as ‘deep black programs.’
A 1997 U.S. Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.” For the CIA to receive million of dollars in funding, to study these phenomena, suggests there was a level of initial and continued success that precipitated the continued money flow and nearly two decades of research — something you wouldn’t do for a tech without serious potential and promise. The explanation that they studied these abilities for almost 20 years then decided they didn’t work and cancelled the program, while possible, doesn’t really sound very credible.
Note that the military industrial complex has keenly studied this technology, while mainstream science and academia steadfastly refuse to fund research into this area of study — going so far as to shun and ridicule any legitimate academic that would dare attempt research into this discipline as a pseudoscientist. The fact that these numerous telepathic abilities have been so intimately studied by our own government, in secret, while the public has been allowed to believe these types of abilities are akin to the realm of fantasy raises a very interesting question. If these powers exist, as evidenced by the research, then why has their existence been withheld from the general public?
 As modern research has explored the mind/matter relationship, we have come to understand that consciousness, or factors associated with consciousness, actually have an observable effects on what we call the material world. These effects can be so small they are not even distinguishable by the human eye, but do exist on a quantum level.

Embodying your highest potential

We all made up of a constellation of thoughts, ideas, memories and perceptions that are overlaid on top of our essential self which also could be called our core nature. When we were born into this world our essential self was very present and radiating outward, free and clear of what this world and it’s influences will impose upon us – shape, contort and force us to conform to. We also come into these lives with other influences that will effect how we are able to function and move.

So, by the time you reach adulthood there are a multitude of overlays on top of our essential self. Some of the very potent overlays are how we have adapted to our parentage, schooling and societal influences. We adapt in certain ways that allow us to survive and ideally prosper in our home, growing up and in society at large. We learn and take on various behaviors and ideals, as well as helpful or less helpful ideas from our parents, schooling and work environments and those people who we interact with and interact with us.

We often assume through our genetic lineage and cultural inculcation habits, ideas and beliefs specific to the culture and society we grow up in and they remained mostly unseen and unquestioned. We are submerged like fish in a fish tank in that are mostly oblivious to the water all around us. The water, in this case, is everything we have taken on – like various pieces of clothing – since we have been born, wearing and living within it unquestioningly.

We are force-fed ideas and beliefs that are held as “true” and “real” and enforced through the mass or group energetic fields of beliefs all around us. They influence and effect us all the time like the weather – the rain, snow and wind – that we encounter all the time. Thankfully there is sunshine as well! Of course there are are optimal combinations of culture, weather, parenting, schooling and societal influences. A good question to ask is how healthy is our society and the culture we have grown up in?

If we look at the world around us it is abundantly clear that things must change and become very different and this must take place sooner than later.

You might ask yourself what can you as an individual do, considering everything I have mentioned above? Is it even possible to become an agent of positive change for yourself, your family, your loved ones, your society and the world around you?

My answer is an unequivocal YES!

I know that all of you reading this, if you’ve gotten this far, are becoming and being the solution by your personal evolution. You do this by waking up! You do this by educating yourself and becoming ever more discerning in your choices. You make choices that affirm your beliefs, choices that are life affirming. Choices that support living in an environment that’s clean and nurturing. Choices that affirm love and connection rather than separation and alienation. Choices that show you love yourself and are committed to caring for and nurturing yourself.

Changing and evolving your own consciousness is the only way that you can be of help and assistance to those you love and the world around you. When you’re sinking in quicksand you cannot offer a hand to help anybody else out. So your dedication to self-care assures you will be standing on firmer ground and able to help those you love.

We are all in different stages of moving from asleep to waking up. Having compassion and understanding for others and their current stage of development is essential. We do not expect a kindergartner to have the maturity, cognitive abilities, discernment and choice-making abilities of a high-schooler or a college graduate. Your dedication to doing what is necessary to free yourself of the conditioning you have taken on, your commitment to waking up, freeing yourself from those things that are weighing you down, numbing you and blinding and binding you is what will ensure and create a changed world.

Embodying your true abilities and potentials to be all of what you came here to Earth to be is the solution to the crisis we are currently living in.

We are all in this world together and together is how we are going to assist and change it to be the place that it really can be! Let us create through our personal evolution a world that we are desiring to live in and that our children will thrive in. The more you embody, in every day and every moment, the type of world do you want to live in and pass on to your children the sooner it will become manifested.

In Light, Love and Service,
Adama

Activating the Lightbody

Your Lightbody is a gridwork of light and sacred geometry that brings together your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual being. This body radiates light energy and electromagnetically links your multidimensional self with the infinite universe. It connects you to your encoded data through high electrical currents that assist you in translating and manifesting your hidden talents and soul purpose. As you activate, build and integrate your Lightbody, you reorganize your molecular structure, allowing your body to be less dense and more free to express itself with the source of the universe.

The sacred geometry of the Lightbody is also called the “Merkaba.” This is both an Egyptian and Hebrew word for the spinning field of light energy and information that radiates from the human body as the star tetrahedron, also known as the Star of David. The Merkaba is a geometrically precise field that is formed from the pattern of the first eight cells of the fertilized ovum or zygote. The location of these eight cells is in the geometrical center of the human body in the base or root chakra. The eight cells also provide the center point for all of the energy fields and grids that surround the body. Thus, the Merkaba field is the matrix of creation. Stated another way, it is the blueprint from which your physical and subtle bodies are formed and from which your life’s journey and soul purpose is made manifest.

The Lightbody or Merkaba is sacred geometry that transcends space, time and dimensions. It is an aspect of the body that activates each cell to a specific resonance and reestablishes a higher connection with the creative Light of God. Sacred geometry concerns the balancing and integration of the feminine and the masculine aspects of your being. The right brain or feminine side intuits unity consciousness and trusts feelings over the intellect. The left brain or the male side sees duality everywhere, wants proof that only one spirit exists in everything and perceives that feelings are not enough. As the polarities integrate, you begin to move into wholeness.

With this law of One, you bring an increased dimensional light and wisdom into your life, moving you closer toward ascension. The ascension process is the merging of the physical body and the spiritual body into a perfected being of light. This merging with your higher self is created by a series of descensions of spirit. Descension means that a vaster part of who you are in the upper dimensions comes to reside in your physical body. As your cells gradually metabolize light energy, every cell of your being becomes spirit in action. Each descension increases the amount of light you are holding in your molecular structure and physical cells and is equivalent to one level of your Lightbody.

As discussed in What is Lightbody? by Tashira Tachi-Ren, activation of your Lightbody consists of twelve levels. As each level is completed, the energy must be integrated physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. For example, as spirit brings higher light vibrations and information in contact with your mental body, the mental body may say, “That’s not real.” The emotional body picks up the same impulses from spirit and can close down rather than expressing itself. Eventually, the physical body could become imbalanced which may result in some form of disease. This creates an ongoing cycle of limitation that is based on the illusion of separation from spirit. However, as you progress through each level, you will embody greater wisdom and clarity about your connection with spirit through the process of clearing and releasing the deepest layers of your core human issues.

At the end of each level of Lightbody Activation, there is a void space that can be likened to an ego death that is characterized by a form of depression or a sense of nothingness. In this energetic void, you are asked to rest and vision a new picture of yourself and your life before moving to the next Lightbody level. You may notice flashing colors of light across your third eye, visualize geometric shapes or hear humming sounds. This transformative process will allow you to turn the light codes in your physical body into cognitive clarity and wisdom. During this time, if you focus on filling the void with joy and shifting the old forms of your life in a gentle, loving and timely way, you will create a life of balance and harmony.

The Lightbody Activation process is non-linear yet it has an overall structure or pattern. It is not a measurement of your personal spiritual achievement. The levels are parallel transmutational stages that can take years or a few minutes to move through depending on the will of spirit. Each person has a unique tonal sound signature, the tone that you are. The Lightbody process activates different cords and resonates sound in accordance with the particular level or levels that an individual is consciously and unconsciously processing in their present life experience. Your soul and divine blueprint determines where you are in any given moment of your evolution and what is needed to best serve the Christ Consciousness. A brief summary of each level as discussed by Tashira Tachi-Ren follows:

First Level Lightbody: It is as though a light bulb goes off in your DNA saying, “It’s time to go home.” There is a sense of wonderment and elation that comes up from inside the body. At the same time, the body says, “Time to drop density”. Most people have the flu and release old traumas, toxins and stored emotions from the physical body.

Second Level Lightbody: You may feel a little disoriented, be tired and continue to experience flu symptoms. You begin to have an inkling there is something called spirit in your life and that you are connected to your soul.

Third Level Lightbody: Your physical senses become strong. Each cell has increased light focused directly into it by spirit that promotes understanding of higher dimensions. A two-way conversation between your physical body and spirit has begun.

Fourth Level Lightbody: The chemistry and electromagnetic energy in your brain changes. You may experience headaches, blurry vision or difficulty hearing. The hemispheres of your brain begin firing electrically across both hemispheres at the same time. You may feel this electrical energy running across your scalp or down your spine. There are flashes of clairvoyance and a sense of being connected to all things.

Fifth Level Lightbody: You begin to remember more of your dreams and are more cognizant of non-linear thinking. Old thought patterning begins to shift and is released out of the body. You begin to ask yourself, “Who am I?”

Sixth Level Lightbody: Spirit brings you in contact with information and people who are working with the Light to assist you in having a vaster understanding of your own reality and how you operate within that reality. You have flashes of multidimensionality, the feeling that nothing is real and the experience of objects not being solid. You experience compassion within yourself and others to do whatever is necessary to assist them or yourself in going to the next higher step of evolution in service to all life.

Seventh Level Lightbody: You enter the emotional stages of Lightbody Activation and focus on deeper levels of opening the heart center. There is a childlike playfulness from which you operate. You begin to experience the now, the energies of synchronization and of being fully present with spirit.

Eighth Level Lightbody: Your pituitary and pineal glands start to grow and change shape. When your pineal gland is growing, it can feel as though someone has their finger between your eyebrows and is pushing against it. You may feel pressure at the back of your head as the pituitary gland is expanding and experience cranial expansion. You start to think in terms of geometries and tones. Your decisions begin to be guided by spirit.

Ninth Level Lightbody: You are opened more fully to understanding the geometries of tonal languages. You are beginning to embody divinity. You may experience body shifts such as growing taller or shorter. Your weight may go up or down. This is a powerful shift into your multidimensional self and is the final passage to understanding and embodying that you are the source.

Tenth Level Lightbody: You begin to manifest the abilities of an avatar or spiritual master. You are fully conscious of being one with the source. You begin to build your Merkaba, a crystalline geometric light structure that allows you to pass through time, space and dimensions.

Eleventh Level Lightbody: Your structure is made up of many lines of light intersecting in beautiful geometries. A new circulatory system has been built. You are operating fully from your God-self and there is no separation. Everyone at this level is manifesting their vision of heaven on earth.

Twelfth Level Lightbody: This is the final activation of the Merkaba field. You are the divine plan for the planet Earth. You will be affiliated with new and different group structures of councils, governments and families that have come into being for Earth’s final ascension. There will also be different types of community living and new rituals awakening the sovereignty of spirit. In the new world that is emerging, we will each live in our spirit, delighting in our present. As we are fully present, we are in the world, not of the world.

You must manifest clarity at the micro personal level to be able to have the same experience at the macro collective level. This is divine law, as above so below. Each of us must first create in our own lives what we desire in our families, communities, societies and countries to be able to shift the entire global collective around the issues of social structure, politics, economics, government and law. You will be living a new life without the need for violence, polarity and disease in a world filled with peace, joy, security and equality. Your new reality perceptions will be ones of clarity, humility, forgiveness and love.

All the angelic assistance you need is available but you must ask for it and learn to trust the process. Each person is responsible for their own life. As you clear away the fears from your inner life, magically you will experience a corresponding shift in your outer life. This, too, is divine law. Ascension is a very simple process. The shift in Light Bodies can occur in an instant. The difference in your life will be your ability to feel and live in joy. The greatest way to serve God, serve all mankind, serve the planet and serve ourselves is to create our lives as a masterpiece of joy. If you focus on the entire process of Lightbody Activation, you will become the adept or spiritual master you desire to be.

During a Lightbody Activation session, you will receive tonal sound, color and geometric patterns through the practitioner’s hands that are placed on or above the physical body. The practitioner is a conduit of the I AM Presence, receiving it and transferring it to you on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels while activating the Merkaba that is both within and outside the body. Lightbody Activation works in partnership with your conscious intent, higher self, angelic guides and the Universal Mind. The amount of energy received and integrated will be exactly that which will best serve the recipient’s highest soul intent at that particular moment in time.

Out of Body Travel

What is Astral Travel/Astral Projection?
Reality is created by thought projection (consciousness) into the physical grid. There are 5 subtle bodies In astral projection the conscious mind leaves the physical body and moves into the astral body to experience. In astral projection you remain attached to your physical body by a ‘silver umbilical type cord’. Some people are able to see the cord when astral projecting. To astral project, as with all out-of-body experiences, one must feel totally relaxed, clothing fitting comfortable, reclining is best. Often a comforter is best over the body as the physical body sometimes gets cold when you travel out.

When you astral project you are consciously aware of things you encounter while out of your physical body. Some people can astral project naturally. Others are afraid to remove their consciousness from the physical body and never learn to astral project.

Astral projection (or astral travel) is an out-of-body experience achieved either awake or via lucid dreaming or deep meditation. People who say they experience astral projection often say that their spirit or astral body has left their physical body and moves in another dimension known as the spirit world or astral plane. The concept of astral projection has been around and practiced for thousands of years, dating back to ancient China. It is currently often associated with the New Age movement.

Psychics often say that the subconscious (or dreaming) mind contains the spirit or astral body, resulting in falling dreams or waking up with a falling sensation or sudden jerk. Most dreams are not remembered by the conscious mind, making the experience of astral projection a subject of subjectivity. Believers in astral projection point out, though, that most ghost sightings often define the ghost as a lucid or transparent apparition walking the earth.

It is unclear whether every physical object has an ‘astral’ counterpart, or if a spirit literally uses incarnation into a physical body and this is what results in astral projections, or if the phenomena is something else entirely. Astral projection also touches on life itself and what happens after physical death.

There are two general schools of thought on the nature of astral projection. These can broadly be defined as the mystical model and the phasing model.

The Phasing Model, which was defined by Robert Monroe, holds the belief that it is impossible to actually leave your body in the truest sense of the word, and that the astral planes and the physical world are merely points on the long spectrum of consciousness. When a person projects, they actually “phase” into another area of consciousness and the locales it contains. This can be likened to tuning a radio to another station. One of the initial signposts representing a phase shift away from physical reality has been labeled the state of focus 10 (mind awake/body asleep). This viewpoint can be seen as a logical progression of the philosophy that external reality is actually an internally created state

The Mystical Model includes a large variety of belief systems and astral maps, but they are tied together by their belief that astral projection takes place outside of the actual physical body. In this model, a more subtle energy body is believed to carry the consciousness outside of the physical body. Some believe that consciousness is transferred into a secondary “energy” body (the etheric body) to allow travel into the astral planes, stating that higher planes of existence are reached through the progressive projection of subtler energy bodies from previous projected bodies. The subtle body is attached to the physical body by means of an energetic connection which usually takes the appearance of a silver cord ‘plugging’ into the chakra system like an umbilical cord.

Types of Astral  Projection

The traveler finds him- or herself in an apparently real domain, analogous to the “other worlds” experienced by traditional peoples, which have no parallel to any physical setting or to consensus reality, described by New Agers and occultists as the astral plane or “the astral”. Environments here may range from populated to unpopulated, artificial to natural to completely abstract environments and from beautific to horrific. Here, normal physical laws often do not apply and humans can often, for example, float or fly. Quality of physical detail ranges from crude, non-detailed and depressing to bright, vivid and fascinating.

Travelers may travel from one realm to the other. Projectors may find access to visions of the past or future and to the Akashic Records accessible from here. It has been said that space and time do not exist on the astral plane nor the higher planes, but no explanation is given as to how forms and entire environments can exist without spatial dimensions, nor why there can be a sequence of events and yet no such thing as time. Many travelers have theorized that people having dreams actually travel to the astral realms, unaware, and, again as reported in Astral Dynamics, travelers have reported seeing dreamers enact dream scenarios on the astral plane, unaware of the more extensive and varied non-physical environment surrounding them. Some also claim common movements in dreams, such as falling or feeling like you are walking through quicksand, is the astral body in action.

Etheric Projection

In contrast to “astral” projection, the traditional understanding of out-of-body experiences involves the projector (or traveler) moving about in usually invisible or ghost-like form in a mundane physical reality that can transmute into the etheric body. This world may, however, have minor differences between the physical reality world we know if strict mind control is not maintained. Proponents of the writings of Robert Bruce sometimes refer to this practice as “Real Time Projection” (RTP) and the mundane world as the “Real Time Zone” (RTZ). From the Real Time Zone, travelers can access “the astral” or remain in the RTZ and witness real time happenings.

In Western theosophy, each subtle body is functionally distinct. Since the etheric body and astral body are not the same they cannot possibly represent the same kind of psychic activity.

There is the belief that the etheric body is actually the same as the physical; however, it “rests” at a slightly different frequency than regular matter.

Some state that the etheric body is a functionally separate body from the physical, and yet they share a mutual relationship, all of which seem to be consistent with how ether and etheric projection is believed to operate.

There have been encounters where the etheric body (during etheric projection), once projected, was “sufficiently physical enough” to be mutually observed by on-lookers.

As well there is an explanation that the “etheric double” can be separated from the physical body: This etheric double is the exact double or counterpart of the physical body to which it belongs, and is separable from it… When separated from the physical body it is visible to the clairvoyant as an exact replica thereof, united to it by a slender thread…

One researcher said that the etheric body (not astral) is the “true” individual, and that its function is to allow psychic abilities to actually surface. The researcher stated that astral projection is not at all part of the etheric body’s actions, and that it is more a “mental state of mind projection out into the world. It was further said that the etheric body is actually the vehicle used in an OBE (Out of Body Experience), and that calling it astral projection can be misleading.

Mental Projection

Mental projection is projection of the astral body to the mental plane via utilization of mental energy while within the astral or etheric to phase into the Mental, or a different process used to project directly into the Mental Plane. The active subtle body of the mental plane is the mental body, which constitutes the intellectual consciousness of the projector in general. The environment is generally highly colorful and kaleidoscopic in nature, like the astral, and shifting consciously. The difference is that even mathematical functions and thoughts will manifest seemingly physically. The buffer zone between the astral and mental planes is known as the Akashic Records, and appears as a library of knowledge of past, present, and future possibility. There are many theories as to why the perceptions of these records and the mental plane in general differ from projector to projector, but the general consensus is that the Akashic records will appear differently, like a computer or library to different people at different times, and that the future is always sketchy and can often change mid-viewing to the projector.

My Experiences with Astral Travel

“When I have been doing astral traveling I have seen things like 57 black vault black ops facilities underground in America where plasma riffles were being tested, remote viewing disc shaped spy drones being built to monitor activities from aerial space, and hover craft being built for off world flights.  There were computer stations in each facility with maps of the world where this technology would be sent to and where all the other vaults are located.  These facilities house advanced technologies that are stored in these vaults and heavily protected, there are many different types of super computers located at each of these facilities with maps of the world showing what is going on around the world every second.  There is technology being suppressed from being used by the general public like zero point free energy source generators that could eliminate paying for the use of electricity and other power usages like paying for water.

All of these astral travel experiences were specific events that I wanted to see of what was going on the planet in terms of top secret things that no one wants humanity to know about, in a way it was partially remote viewing to see clear details of what was happening in real time sequence during the end of 2014.

Originally I had learned astral travel so that I could be able to use my third eye to open wormholes to go back into space as tthe star traveler to see what is going on in the universe, but astral travel has helped me to see events happening in real time on planet Earth.  This ability helps me to track what I need to know about information concerning Earth, her evolutionary process, star nation beings operating in space or on the planet, etc.

I also saw a star gate testing facility on Earth located in the U.S. where refractory mirror technology was being used to create portable wormhole gates that instantly open as jump gates in the facility and crews can enter these portals safely and can go anywhere on the planet and off world for missions.  This technology already works and could be implemented to be available to the general public as a method of transportation to replace using planes for long distance travel, instead the new portal technology could be used to teleport people and things quickly from one point on the planet to the next in a matter of minutes instead of taking hours to arrive somewhere by plane or car, using fossil fuels which pollute the planet.

On another astral travel experience I encountered seeing a group of the Illuminati having a meeting somewhere in England and Washington DC, United States to discuss the progress of their power levels and psychic abilities.  There was about fourteen individuals sitting on throne like chairs wearing black robes with hoods in a chamber that looked like a house of commons meeting location.  These individuals were demonstrating how strong their psychic abilities had advanced, and were discussing their agendas for various mission plans around the world.  The Illuminati like having power, and they control half of the world’s financial banking systems, government institutions, and prevent humanity from having advanced technological progress where there is rapid evolution in having clean water,  clean air, having no natural disasters, wars, diseases, and enough food to feed the whole world, etc.  This type of progress for improvements is deliberately held back so there is no free will for life choices to be made by the people of Earth, so instead the Illuminati cabals get to keep their control over humanity with their domination of power and greed systems.”

Astral Projection: from Crystalinks

Veil of Forgetfulness

What is the veil of forgetfulness and what is its purpose?  Why are so many people seemingly separated from their higher selves?  How can I dissolve the veil of forgetfulness?

Many people live their entire lives never knowing about the existence of the veil of forgetfulness.  The veil of forgetfulness serves several purposes:

1.     It allows us to forget any trauma from previous lives, such as traumatic memories.
2.     It allows us to find ourselves without initially realizing our connection to Source.
3.     It allows us to learn from the ego, as well as to dissolve the ego.

Some people have the ability to remember their past lives while others learn about them through past life regression hypnotherapy.  Both of these methods help to confirm the existence of the veil of forgetfulness.
Others may have Near Death Experiences (NDE’s) in which they temporarily reconnect with Prime Creator, only to come back to this 3rd dimensional reality with a glimpse of what we can expect when we cross over to the other side.
But you may ask, “Why am I not able to remember my connection to Source?”.  The clues are all around you through nature, animals, friends, family, etc…  The divine love and appreciation we feel for these things are a microcosm of the love we feel when we return back to the Source.  In a 3D world of duality, where fear is constantly imposed on us, it is sometimes difficult to remember the divine spark of light that we all have within us.

We sometimes get reminders through synchronicities, such as experiencing 11:11 or other repetitive synchronistic numbers.

Part of your challenge in this incarnation is re-remembering who you are along with your intimate relationship with Prime Creator.  While at times it might seem that you are on this journey alone, the truth is, you are not alone!  You have spirit guides and guardian angels that love you so very much and are always by your side!  Ask them for help or assistance because that is their job and they are eager to work with you!  Of course, they are not going to manifest a Porsche for you, but they will help guide you in non-materialistic ways that help to facilitate your spiritual journey.  Your higher self serves as a guide and is not allowed to interfere with your free will, so it is your choice to ask your higher self for help, or to choose otherwise.

Remember this:  If you ever doubted the presence of your higher self, spirit guides or guardian angels, think about the times you used your intuition.  Your intuition is usually one of these entities reminding you of something important.
The veil of forgetfulness helps to lock in place duality, from which you will learn many, many lessons.  After all, that is one of the reasons why you decided to incarnate here at this particular time, so, in essence, it provides you with opportunities for spiritual growth.
This is also why some people take longer to awaken than others.  The veil of forgetfulness varies from person to person and as you raise your vibrations, the veil starts to lift.  Those people who are muddled in fear and lower vibrations have a more dense type of veil of forgetfulness, which presents them ample opportunities to overcome obstacles for spiritual growth.  It is within their own free will to decide to stay locked in fear or to begin their spiritual journeys.
An easy way to lift the veil of forgetfulness is through meditation and the clearing of your chakras. Meditation helps to free your mind from stress and fear.  Clearing your chakras, along with meditation, helps to facilitate your connection to your higher self and helps to begin the re-remembering process.
We are starting to witness a new breed of humanity called indigo children, crystal children, and star seeds who are born with little or no veils of forgetfulness.  Their connection to Source is direct and they have concrete memories of their past lives.  This is symbolic of the growth that we, as the collective, have achieved in our spiritual journeys.  In other words, many of us are at the end of the reincarnation process that involves entering into a 3rd dimensional reality and are ready for the next stage of our journeys into the higher dimensional realms of reality.  The indigos that are currently incarnating will help to usher in the Golden Age and they bring an infused energy that will help to transform the current system of politics, education and livelihood.  The Earth is currently going through her own transformational evolutionary process where the core of the planet is shifting into something that is crystalline matter.  All the earthquake and volcanic activity is starting to show that these are signs of the evolution changes.  The shift is to transition from 3D into 5D and human body’s will also evolve into having a crystalline essence for bodies, so there will be a choice to have a physical body and also a light energy body that is made of pure universal energetic vibrations, having the capabilities to manifest things in the blink of the eye.

As your veil begins to lift, you will begin to notice a disdain for how things are done and will crave a new beginning… one that involves a collective compassion for humanity and our well-being.  You will find that fear is easily dissolved and replaced with love as you are no longer buying into the old system of paradigm matrix that promotes economic slavery.  You eagerly sense real change in the air and no longer buy into the political rhetoric that keeps us divided as people.  Your views on religion may swing to the realization that YOU are your own God or Goddess and we are all equally divine, and have our own free sovereignty as living beings!

The Law of One- The Veil is present only in the 3D density

Ra (a highly evolved social memory complex – see: ra-and-quo-the-law-of-one):
“This is the only plane of forgetting.  It is necessary for the 3rd density entity to forget so that the mechanisms of confusion or free will may operate upon the newly individuated consciousness complex. The same conditions existed in time/space (the metaphysical realms) both before and after the veiling (or veil of forgetfulness); that is, the veiling process is a space/time phenomenon.  Without the veil the mind was not caught in your illusory time.”

A Few Things to Remember

  • Ask your higher self for help in re-remembering who you are and your purpose for being here.

  • Meditate and clear your chakras.

  • Dissolve the ego.

  • Eliminate all fear.

  • Work on resolving any residual karmic lessons or soul contracts, this helps to remove emotional blocks and lift the veil.

  • Stop watching TV and reading anything published by the main stream media.

  • Help others in this transition.

Why the need for the Veil of Forgetfulness

With the rare exception of very advanced souls, the events of one’s prenatal existence are rarely recalled. The physical plane is the only plane of forgetfulness, and this has over time been imposed upon third-density consciousness by those conditions inherent within the Fall from Grace. Reincarnating mankind, therefore, is required to mature and grow by making fresh choices in each new incarnation without recourse to the actual experiences of previous lifetimes. Prudent decisions made in the new incarnation, however, will lead eventually to complete freedom from the need for further third-density experience. Such emancipation from the difficult but necessary and rewarding life-experience of the physical plane has in past been termed by some spiritual schools as ‘Liberation’, and denotes a non-compulsory promotion from the dense material world and an auspicious movement forward in the eternal stream of spiritual unfoldment.

Now, all Servers who have chosen to incarnate physically upon Earth (even those who are here for the very first time) must adhere to the laws and conditions of the physical plane, and so during the earlier stages of their corporeal embodiment they are also subject to forgetfulness. This is another of the many burdens that Servers dutifully accept as an inherent factor in their voluntary descent into the vibratory fields of third-density existence. The veil of forgetfulness is designed to mask the memory of their origins, purpose on Earth, higher consciousness, etc., to the degree necessary for them to experience fully the typical human condition. It also affords them needed camouflage until it is time for their public recognition. However, the veil does not inhibit all of their sensibilities, and this is why most Servers will feel alienated within society to some degree, for they sense that there is so much more to life than that of which humanity is aware, and they often suffer painful lessons in order to arrive at the definite acknowledgement that Truth and divine Love are generally quite unknown and unpopular strangers here upon Earth.

The personal veil imposes certain restrictions upon the soul that frequently serve to evoke a common pattern throughout the lives of Servers. This pattern often includes trials and challenges that may produce considerable friction and distress for Servers up until their circumstances become better understood by penetrating the veil to some degree. Generally, difficulties will repeat themselves until Servers have learned necessary lessons by way of their physical incarnation and so become qualified to empathically assist humanity. One of the most significant distinctions of the dense material world in comparison to the more subtle spheres is that it offers repeated opportunities to learn how to love unconditionally despite its abundant dualities and illusions, and Servers are generally inhibited from remembering who they are until they choose to use their free will wisely by loving and helping others. This last point is of vital importance and is most worthy of serious consideration by anyone who is beginning to suspect their nature and, therefore, their purpose upon Earth.

As necessary as the veil of forgetfulness is to the overall success of each Server’s mission, the masked condition is designed to be but temporary. Servers invariably possess certain inner senses which, when heeded, will always impel them to serve the directives of the group-soul rather than those of the personality, and in order to penetrate the veil of forgetfulness and so consciously remember their duty, Servers must listen carefully within; they must trust their Greater Self, and then act upon their insights and true spiritual impulses. It is the duty of all Servers to ultimately negate the mandatory imposition made upon them by the veil, and they may hasten this important process of awakening by applying in their lives two rudimentary measures: i) sincere and intelligent seeking of Truth, and ii) active service. By law, both these activities, if done in earnest, will ensure assistance from the invisible worlds, and so help lead Servers into a progressive emergence from the veiled condition.

It should be remembered that Servers have already reached a higher level of spiritual attainment than the average Earth-bound soul. Therefore, the physical, emotional and mental components of the individual that together comprise the personality of the Server are to be regarded solely as the lower vehicles of expression, communication and service. However, in accord with the Law of Forgetfulness, once new vehicles are taken on in physical incarnation the veil must be pierced anew, self-knowledge reattained and divine contact re-established as a personality before real spiritual service may be rendered. Therefore, the art of spiritual discrimination must be recultivated by incarnated Servers in order to help effect purification of the lower vehicles which, without exception, will have become tainted by the polluted ethers and countless other detrimental influences upon Earth. Purification is a process that must be furthered every day in order that the veil of forgetfulness may be progressively attenuated as higher spiritual contact is fostered. Negative purification, i.e., the release of harmful patterns from the emotional body, and positive purification, i.e., the education of the mental body, will bring about the balanced preparation of the Server’s personality, rapport with the group-soul and so also with the Divine Plan. This process of alignment and purification is essential both to the thinning of the veil and the fortification of the Server’s vehicles so that they may be prepared for contact with Divinity, and the way of purification exemplified by Servers is a road upon which humanity must also embark if it is to enter the New World. In helping to liberate humanity from the prison of self, such alignment of the personality with the purposes of the divine Will is the goal of all Servers today, and shall enable the Law of Service to be progressively and spontaneously demonstrated upon Earth.

There exist certain personal benefits to the veil of forgetfulness also. Firstly, it restricts the amount of inflowing force or home-vibration until the personality is ready to receive it, able to take responsibility for the consequences of such power, and thus to wield it safely in the world for the good of others. Secondly, the potent effects created prematurely by a high-frequency aura upon Earth would undoubtedly result in excessive persecution from those who do not possess spiritual understanding. An unveiled personality in the public arena would thus suffer inordinately at the hands of many human beings who would become quite dazzled by an awakened Server’s innate radiance. Mankind is still not ready today to behold the full light of the New World Consciousness, the precipitation of which shall be introduced to Earth via the lower vehicles of Servers. Therefore, the veil is left intact to some degree until the right moment, and this also provides opportunity for further preparation by the personalities of Servers, as sufficient strength, confidence and wisdom is regained from their experience in physical incarnation.

However, the more diligent and advanced among Servers are today successfully penetrating their veil of forgetfulness to a significant degree, and are consequently attaining at least a fragmentary recollection of their mission. However, should these awakened ones choose to ignore their newly-recalled spiritual duty to humanity, and instead fall prey, even to a small extent, to selfishness under the surreptitious influence of those materialistic forces that still hold sway over the Earth, they will subsequently suffer hefty penalties that will be imposed upon their personality by their own group-soul in order to encourage them back along the right road. Such consequences are often quite disturbing for Servers who may find that they have plunged to an all-time low of depression, confusion or worse, whereby no light may be found by them anywhere. Such a quandary will last for as long as they continue to live for self and not for others. These measures may appear to be somewhat severe when regarded casually, yet they are actually a part of the Servers’ basic training, implemented by no other factor save the directives of their group-soul in order that their future service may be carried out according to plan. Such measures may be rightfully recognized, therefore, as being most appropriate when considering the important task of Servers which, in being a part of the Divine Plan for mankind on Earth at this critical time, must be given every opportunity to succeed. Servers who may have become lost in a cloud of personal problems may profit by contemplating their attitudes and reactions to all phenomena related to their malaise until they uncover what life has been whispering to them by way of their disquietude.

The planetary deadline is so very close today that recent arrivals among Servers necessarily carry a thinner veil of forgetfulness, and will consequently witness far less limitation imposed upon them. The awakening and positive engagement of these more youthful Servers will also be better facilitated than their predecessors because their innate spiritual faculties and teaching skills will be better recognized, appreciated, more enthusiastically evoked and consciously required by a more awakened and readied humanity whose attentiveness to the laws of life will have been galvanized by crisis during the rapidly changing and climactic times ahead.

The Veil Unveiled

“Greetings, dear ones, from the Brotherhood of Light. We are the Order of Melchizedek, spiritual guardians of the earth and humanity. We prefer that you think of us as your doting Brothers! Our mission, our dedication to the Divine Plan is helping you to gracefully evolve. To that end, we would like to share with you an aspect of your energetic “wiring” that has been, up until now, beyond your framework of reference. This has to do with the Veil of Forgetfulness, where it is and how it functions.

We will begin by asking you, dear reader, a question. Have you ever wondered where the Veil of Forgetfulness actually is? For most people, this is one of many metaphysical concepts that sounds good, makes sense, but they do not “see” any logical or physical proof that it exists. Of course, since the Veil is what keeps your duality firmly in place and keeps you separate from conscious connection to Spirit, one could argue that you aren’t supposed to see it! Yes, all well and good, but it puts the Veil back into the conceptual-theoretical arena and removes it from your actual day-to-day existence.

The Veil of Forgetfulness is not an amorphous concept, nor is it a puffy wall beyond the horizon that you will encounter if you walk far enough. If the Veil is supposed to keep 3D duality fixed and keep your sensory level limited, did you ever wonder why each person attains a heightened vibration in their own time, in their own way? If the Veil were the same for everyone (i.e. affected each person the same way), wouldn’t everyone be making the same progress at the same time? Yes, if the Veil were fixed in your dimension outside of your bodies, you would all respond the same way.

Getting clear yet? Each person has their very own Veil of Forgetfulness, built into their chakra system. When we say, “The way up is within” and “The kingdom of God is inside you” we are speaking literally! Your Higher Self connection is the eighth chakra link between the Eternal You and the temporarily physical you. Up until now, this connection has been like a one-way mirror, keeping you unaware that you are linked to levels of yourself beyond your physical core.

We ask you to see the eighth chakra as the “outer skin” of your dense etheric body, like a big balloon of energy encompassing you in all directions. Picture this membrane to be twelve inches above your head and the same twelve inches below your feet. Now, we stated earlier that Crown and Root are your two vertical chakras pointing up and down, while the horizontal chakras two through six each has an energy vortex front and back, linked by a thin tube through the body. Well, the two vertical chakras, Root and Crown, each have a second vortex, too! Picture the top aspect of the eighth chakra pointing down towards your head – it provides the incoming energy for your Crown chakra! Now picture the downward-pointing Root chakra, and place the bottom of the eighth chakra below it facing up – that is the energetic vortex mate to Root, which feeds you back clean, and green earth energy to keep you grounded! There is your full “as above, so below” connection to the cosmos!

In some holistic teachings, the eighth chakra has been named your Soul Star/Earth Star connection. Within the neck of the eighth chakra, within each flower pointing down to crown from above and also pointing up to feet from below, is a little golden filter. The filter above your crown controls how much universal energy, and what frequency, the body can handle incoming at any given time. Since your meridian system is built with a “circuit-breaker” around the head to protect the crown chakra from internal pressure backing up, the crown also needs a way to release pressure. The golden filter above the crown, in addition to feeding universal energy into your energetic system, also reverses to release excess pressure from the crown chakra.

The golden filter below your feet (in the bottom part of the eighth chakra pointing up to root) acts as a drain for all the excess pressure released from your body, and also determines how much earth energy incoming your body can handle. Yes, each filter has a dual purpose in different directions, acting as pressure release valves for the seven-chakra system held within the energetic circle of the eighth chakra.

Now, how do these interactions take place? How does the eighth chakra know the “light-density quotient” of each of the lower chakras? Ah, the beauty of your design leaves us in awe. Look to the mate of the eighth chakra. In earlier text, we stated that the sixth chakra, your Third Eye, has a “physical monitoring connection” to each of the other six chakras. What does that mean? The sixth chakra is constantly reading (its own and) the energy levels of the other chakras, and relaying that information to its mate, the eighth. Based on those energy readings, the eighth chakra adjusts its internal filters accordingly. Is it not amazingly simple?

Yes, where the Veil is and what it does are both simple enough to explain, but how the Veil filters actually work is beyond the purview of this text. We will add, however, that your eighth chakra intimately knows how the rest of you is doing at the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Thus Higher Self constantly knows the specifics of where you are blocked, and what still needs to be learned. Even if a person is physically healthy, they still need to clear their emotional, mental and spiritual “etheric baggage” (i.e. 3D low-density pressure pockets) from their auras. The lessons they draw to themselves in life keep recurring because they are magnetizing that specific vibratory level of lesson to them. That frequency level is controlled by the eighth chakra, based upon the vibratory health of the internal seven chakras. People in victim mode, for example, keep attracting victim lessons until they heighten their vibration beyond that band and no longer need to attract that level of lesson.

So, how are these vibrations emitted and received?  The Higher-Self will patiently guide you through your lessons, over and over, until your spiritual homework has been accomplished. All of those “lesson vibrations” that bounce back and forth between people (to cause drama and stimulate learning) occur because you are unconscious transmitters. You don’t realize how much you are energetically broadcasting, all the time! Whether it be emotions from the emotional layer or repeating loops in the mental layer, most people are stuck in one or both modes. That is one reason that our teachings include gaining control of your thoughts and emotions. Not only is unconscious broadcasting a huge energy drain, it constantly reinforces the very things you are trying to release, due to the Universal Law of Attraction.

Dear ones, once you learn how to clear the pockets of 3D density you all carry in your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual layers, your vibratory rise will be guaranteed. Once you learn how to stop “feeding” those pockets and start clearing them instead, you will feel better, accomplish more, and improve the quality of your lives. The Veil of Forgetfulness lies within you, each person carries their own. That is why ascension is such an individual process. That is also how your new generations are coming in enhanced, they have thinner Veil filters than you were born with. In order to resonate with and blend with the higher energies, we have been teaching you how to clear your aura and physical core of excess internal pressure that holds you back in the density of the third dimension.

Do you see now, dear one, why you need a daily practice? Do you see why reading and learning metaphysical concepts only takes you part way to your goal? The clearer your meridian system, the more “light” you can hold. The higher your light-density quotient, the thinner your Veil filters become – at the physical level. That is where you’re etheric layers, your senses, systems and body parts are all “wired together.” In order to be able to manifest anything at the material 3D level, you must do it from a higher level: the 5D level, the level of union between all chakras.

Once you clear and balance your seven internal chakras enough to blend fully into the vibratory resonance of the eighth chakra, you achieve a unity, or unified chakra field, that becomes All One Chakra. Yes, once you are fully integrated at this level, you will have full conscious charge of your “light-density” quotient. You will know exactly when you need to clear, what and where from; you will know when you need to recharge yourself. You will understand and practice Care and Maintenance of the Aura.

To those of you worried about your “light-density quotient,” what the specific numbers are and what they mean, we say, “Stop worrying about it! Stop wasting energy in that direction!” You would have to have a strong working knowledge of sacred geometry to fully understand how this process works and what each gradient means. Ultimately, that knowledge will not serve you unless you know how to apply it. The Veil is one of many systems you have built into your body that are autonomous. Would you want to be in full conscious charge of your digestion? Of your hormonal levels? Of your bone-marrow production? That level of body awareness would only interfere with your current life. If you just focus on diligently clearing your nervous system of pressure and re-energizing when you feel the need, your PEMS body layers will rebalance themselves!

Once you have cleared enough internal pressure to lift your dense etheric body into a higher energetic band-width, what happens then? You merge with your Soul Purpose chakra, dear one. Higher Self blends with you by adjusting your golden filters so that all eight energy centers become One vibration. You expand beyond the Veil of Forgetfulness, which you no longer need to keep you blindly focused on the 3D game of earthly life. Yes, you become a truly interdimensional being. Once your chakra system expands into full integration at the eighth level, you won’t be reading our channeled words any more, dear precious human, you will be conversing with us directly!

 Help each other, work on each other, support each other, and please remember the 3 R’s: Rest, release, and recharge!”

What If You Could See Behind The Veil?

What if you could lift the veil and had the ability to see a soul? Would you accept that you are part of a limitless and infinite collective consciousness? What would it be like to overcome fear by rejecting superficial ideologies and dogmas? Could you connect to a higher frequency of love, identifying with others, not only as individuals, but as souls integrally connected?

There is a oneness that is beautiful and pure. Lift the veil, what would you see? Imagine a group of souls communicating with each other regarding how they wish to evolve with the aspiration to be more like God. What if before you were born you had several conversations with other souls that went something like this: “Hey Brent, in my next life, I need to learn selflessness and compassion. Could you meet up with me in 10 years and teach me that? Karen, it was wonderful being your sister last time around, but would you help me with tolerance and acceptance? Sally, I really need to work on being humble. Could you meet me when I’m 35?”

Perhaps, it’s an addiction you’d like to experience to become more compassionate towards others with addictions. You may desire to live with a disease with aspirations of becoming a compassionate healer or may choose to live in poverty or extreme wealth.

All lessons would be predetermined. You’d essentially know what your journey would look like with some unexpected twists and turns along the way. How you decide to respond once you have incarnated is up to you as you still have free will.

Here you are born into a story with some foundational aspects revealed at birth, like where you live, nationality, and parents. Your religion is most often dictated to you along with the language you learn to communicate. Your socialization and domestication are also predetermined. You will be expected to accept belief systems that are not your own. Once you have matured, you could boldly and courageously replace the belief systems you’ve inherited with your own. In some societies, there will be consequences, but that would also be part of your evolution and transcendence should you decide to challenge what you’ve been taught.

What if you accepted the idea that everyone, including yourself, has chosen a spiritual assignment before incarnation, and whatever you or they are experiencing is the result of those choices? Would you be more compassionate even with yourself? Could you intuitively, empathically and automatically understand?

What if, for one day, everyone in the world could lift the veil and see the soul of every other human being? What would they see? More importantly, what wouldn’t they see behind the veil? Would the experience of seeing a soul change everything? Could anyone ever go back to living behind the veil?

Think about it. Labels would vanish. There would be no distinction between straight, lesbian, homosexual, transgender, single, married, divorced or widowed. There would be no gender or skin color. Nationality wouldn’t matter. No distinction would exist between Catholic, Christian, Islamic, Buddhist, Muslim or Atheist. Drug addict, alcoholic, gambler, cheat or thief would be nonexistent. It wouldn’t matter if you were a president, ambassador, doctor, attorney, teacher or farm worker. It wouldn’t matter if you were called selfish, jealous, rude, weak, strong, kind, gentle, rich, poor or homeless. There would be no disease or any manifestation of a body that is sick. Dwarf, midget, giant, little person, tall, short, freak, pretty, beautiful, ugly, handsome, good looking or any other label would totally disappear.

The only thing that you would see is a soul, which is an illumination of pure, radiant color and light – a beautiful embodiment of love and translucent energy. A sense of peace and joy would flood through every cell of your body. As you inhale and exhale deeply, you would release all that is not real, and in that moment, experience nirvana as the veil is lifted.

The soul before you is grounded beautifully in love with an authentic journey. The identifying, segregating, limiting shell has vanished. Agreements that have been unknowingly made disappear as you experience an immediate shift in understanding and accepting that everything is aligned with a single phase in evolution for one life time, somewhere between the moment of conception and death that could span over 100 years. You recognize the soul as that soul is also a part of you, and you accept the idea of birth, death and transition. You feel at home.

What if the person is evil, would we still see a soul behind the veil? Personally, some people believe that once the veil has been lifted, seeing purely through the eyes of love, evil hiding under any disguise or manifestation would disappear, returning to its native nothingness.

You would see an unfolding and a regeneration with the purpose of evolving higher in every area to one day reach a God Consciousness, so profound that there would be no separation from God. You would think, act and respond like God. You would see only through the eyes of love, blind to anything or anyone that could cause separation, blind to injustice, war, hate, and most importantly fear.

Only when the veil is lifted, it would not seem so odd when people come out from behind the walls they’ve built for protection. Stories that trend on social media would not cause you to shake your head in bewilderment.

By separating yourself from superficial perceptions and ideologies, you’d accept that everyone has a soul journey with lessons to learn are merely passing through. You would understand without judgment or criticism, empathizing with whatever anyone was dealing with because you would know it was crafted, more times than not, by their own hand.

If we, collectively could do that, lift and see a soul beyond the veil, life would make much more sense. Everything that may have once seemed insignificant or nonsensical would hold deeper meaning. You would not be so inclined to analyze, judge or scrutinize the life and choices of anyone. You would know that this life experience was designed for their highest good. Just as yours has been designed for you. You would constantly seek knowledge and truth, while taking responsibility for the change you’d like to see in the world and in yourself, doing so compassionately and with kindness. You would know that what you resist will follow you again and again until you get it right.

If we all had soul vision, everyone around the world would know that they are intricately united. One nation under God, under Spirit. One planet under God, under Spirit. The same God that created the Universe, the heavens and the earth. The same God that resides within you.

If you aspire to be closer to God and to adopt a God-like consciousness, the first step in that evolution is learning to see through the veil…the facade. Lift the veil and choose to see a soul through the eyes of love. Accept that everyone has divine purpose and are part of a much greater plan, and you are here to transcend illusion.
