Meditation and The New Age FEAR of Ayahuasca

Meditation vs Ayahuasca is a constant comparison that comes up on our channel. Although my thoughts on the subject have never changed, my replies to these comparisons have since I have been able to fully understand the disservice and dangers to human consciousness. When we put out our video, How To Make Ayahuasca and gave people the Geohuasca guide we not only pissed off the New Age Community but also the Shamanic community as well.

Why is Meditation and Ayahuasca already compared by Meditation Gurus but Ayahuasca is never compared to meditation by people who work with Ayahuasca? Why do they feel the need to attack Ayahuasca anywhere they can?

It’s very simple. Control!

Transcending Fear : Becoming Limitless!

“Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh

Fear grips us in strange ways and keeps us locked in a dense, lower vibrational state … like everything else, this also changes when we begin to realize that our fears stem from our own created illusions of the egoic mind. When we stop reacting to the contents of our own rational thinking mind which keeps us in a perpetual thinking state, we break free from the illusions of our own creation, and start being more accepting of what comes forth in the here and now, without trying to change anything about it. Accepting the lessons life has to offer brings a great deal of freedom and we realize our life purpose on Earth school which has to do with furthering our own spiritual growth while being a guiding beacon of light allowing others to be the best version of themselves. Judging another path is the way of the ego which always seeks to be right.

Labels such as Lightworker, Empath, Indigo, Starseed may help us identify ourselves in some way with respect to our origins and past lives, but should not create a false sense of superiority over others who are yet to see the light and awaken to their true spiritual nature and use the gifts they were born with. Allowing each others journeys to unfold as they have to is the best we can do at times … without the need to control others choices and deciding whats best for them. By accepting the darkness for what it is and letting it go we heal it … by fighting it, we create more of it.

The lessons will be repeated until they have been mastered and transcended …. All we have to do is be the light …. follow our path … love all unconditionally foregoing the need to judge anyone or anything. Recognize that love is what has the power to transform … and our own inner transformation is what brings about a positive change into the world. We are way more powerful when we are awake and united as one consciousness as opposed to being divided by our false thoughts and belief systems. The world is changing and it is changing with each of us making better choices and being mindful of what allow into our sacred space.

….

Here is a brilliant article from Tiffany Stiles on being limitless by becoming fearless in our lives:

Once you become FEARLESS, you become LIMITLESS!

The only limits that hold you from progressing forward are the ones you have placed upon yourself, from childhood programming of parents, school, and society as a whole. You have been programmed how to behave, what you can and cannot say, how you should dress, look, speak. You have been programmed that if you step outside of that box, you will be “labeled” different, freakish, not normal, crazy! It is all just that, A PROGRAM to keep you locked into a BOX! The very minute you decide step outside of that box you are free! You no longer care what anyone thinks and you no longer need the approval of anyone else. You have begun to step into the authentic self you are and you will present that self to the world fearlessly and unapologetically. You did not come here to experience this life with limitations, you came here to experience all of it in its glory, its messiness, its ugliness and its most beautiful and happiest, peacefulness. You are a human having a soul experience. You chose to come here to experience emotions, ALL of them. In higher realms in the Light body there is but only one emotion to experience and that is of unconditional love. In order for your soul to evolve and progress to higher levels, this could only occur through karmic lessons, patterns, painful life lessons and challenges. Through these experiences is where you grow, and your soul evolves. Only in and through the most painful experiences does a soul learn compassion, self love and unconditional love. Through this comes a yearning and a calling of how to show to others this way and to help others out of their own pain and move through the other side of it with a renewed sense of self perseverance and strength you never knew possible. We are all here walking each other home. We are one! There is no division, that is also a program. We are all mirrors to one another for the purpose of lessons. You have learned what you do to another, you do the same to yourself. This is karma.

For thousands of years this planet has been kept in a prison of a very low vibration and a very dense 3D reality for many different reasons, but the main one was to keep humans from releasing karmic patterns and stay on the wheel of reincarnation for the purpose of control and fear to provide a service. Through manipulation of DNA and evolution we have now progressed to this level. The level of truth and knowing. Only 3% of our DNA was activated at that time, just enough to survive, but on an extremely limited basis. The other 97% spliced to remain dormant. This is how control has been maintained for 26,000 years, UNTIL NOW! Now with the realigning of the photon belt, the milky way, the planets, the extreme solar flare activity and the lunar events that have taken place starting in 2011, our total DNA is being reactivated at 100% capacity. When this happens it begins firing up each chakra energy center in the body one by one until all are firing in a wide spinning circle in unison with one another. You then reach a higher connection to your higher consciousness and experience the “Dark Night of the Soul.” Your ego falls away through this process, and your kundalini energy that has been coiled at the base of your spine begins to rise through each one of your chakra centers completing your 12 strands of DNA. At this time you are fully activated! You are FEARLESS and you are limitless energy flowing from Divine Source to the core of mother earth. You become a crystalline light body and the embodiment of that Light frequency of unconditional love. The more you allow this energy to move through you, the easier it is for you to integrate with it. As you do, your Light shines so brightly that you will show others out of the Darkness.

This is why you came here now, in this lifetime. The number sequences, the symbols, the downloads of information, the increase in vibrational frequency, your gifts expanding is all happening right on course. You trained and prepared yourself for this many lifetimes over. You are not ill equipped. Everything you need to know lies within attached to your higher consciousness and Divine Source. Jesus was an example of this to show us the way and he did, and the returning of Jesus IS the embodiment of Christ Consciousness within YOURSELF! This is the returning of Jesus through each and everyone one of us who completes this process. As each one does the Divine template of Earth returns lifted from the 3D density of control and fear and raises to 5D and higher realms of consciousness UNIFIED AT THE COLLECTIVE LEVEL. WHEN YOU BECOME FEARLESS, YOU BECOME LIMITLESS.

Awakening from the Cult of Ignorance

by Christopher Chase

“We were born to be free… to build things and grow our own food, develop our skills and be creative, not to lose ourselves in shopping, technology and mindless consumption. We are here to love and practice forgiveness, not to make war, seek revenge and take the lives of others. Here to share our wealth, to be noble and generous, not to hide behind high walls and hoard possessions…”

We live in an age where the delusions and ignorance of modern civilizations have become the global norm.  Most of the problems in our world stem from how “civilized” humans have compartmentalized life in such a way as to hide reality from ourselves and other people. A fantasy view of reality, what Buddhists call samsara, has been packaged, marketed and sold to the masses by those in positions of influence and power.

This has been done on purpose, has been the “operating code” of  hierarchical human civilizations for thousands of years. Our leaders don’t want us to know what is really going on, with anything. This was as true of pharaohs and kings in the past as it is of large corporations, governments, billionaires, military leaders and media elites now.

The compartmentalization of knowledge and intentional hiding of facts is how those in power maintain control. They hide how food is produced, how wars create future terrorists (and civilian casualties), how education is being intentionally dumbed down, how the earth’s ecosystems are being destroyed, how politicians are corrupt, how democracy has been rigged, how debt enslaves people and wealth is accumulated unfairly.

Most importantly, they try to keep us in the dark about how all this is harming us now and will harm generations far into the future. Instead of the truth, we are fed a fantasy view of reality, constructed by slick policy makers, speech writers and marketing wizards. These deceptions and illusions are spread through newspapers, advertising, TV dramas, magazines and even the way children are taught in schools.

This is the challenge of mind control and tyranny that our ancestors battled for centuries, that we of the 21st century are still struggling with. It’s way bigger than the economy, the debt, the stress, the political unrest and social dysfunction we see all around us.

If current generations don’t throw off the delusions of ignorance and open our eyes to what is REALLY going on, our children and grandchildren will continue to be enslaved, not only by the lies, but also by the very real and harmful consequences that our ignorance of reality has been producing.

Without a clear vision and understanding of the unity and interdependence of the world, we are unable to make wise judgements and choices. Wisdom requires creative and critical thinking, the ability to understand causal relationships and connections, so as to judge which actions will have positive consequences, and which actions will most likely create harm.

The cult of ignorance twists and compartmentalizes our thoughts so that it’s harder for us to make wise choices and judgments. We choose what we are told to choose, what tastes good, looks good, feels good in the moment and benefits those in power, but is in truth harmful for the rest of us, for the earth, and our future descendants.

Are you ready to wake up from this, to embrace our true potential, interdependence and wholeness? We need to wake up, each of us, and then wake up others, wake up our family, friends and children. It’s the only way the cult’s power can be overthrown and diminished.

The Beginner’s Guide To Astral Projection

The Beginner’s Guide To Astral Projection (Part 1)

We have previously discussed astral projection and the silver cord in previous blog posts, but there are still many things that need to be tackled to even begin trying to fully comprehend the concepts of astral projection. And here is a very quick beginner’s guide to astral projection that anyone can read and learn from.

What is astral projection?

To put it simply, as the name implies, it is the process of projecting your astral self out of your body, to explore the world or the astral plane, and be free of any physical bonds. Once outside the physical body, the astral body can experience and perform many different things, like flight, visions of worlds unknown, and meeting spiritual and astral beings.

When you astral project, your astral body will be tethered to your physical body by the silver cord, a lifeline of sorts that allows you to come back when it is time. Learn more about the astral plane and the silver cord in our previous post here.

What are the basics of astral projection?

There are a number of critical components for astral projection that need to be dealt with in order to experience it, and anyone who wants to try astral projection for the first time must be fully aware of them.

  1. Belief and desire – before even attempting the process itself, one must have the proper desire to astral project, and a certain level of belief that it can be done. This is where it gets tricky with skeptics and believers, with skeptics claiming that astral projection is hogwash, despite numerous accounts of believers and practitioners having experienced it already. If you believe that it is all crockery, even with the desire to have your skepticism broken, it will be very difficult to astral project. On some degree, there has to be a level of “faith” that astral projection is possible, as it requires a fundamental belief in the presence of an astral body, an astral plane, and the metaphysical world which is not normally seen. This is the first hurdle.
  2. Concentration and relaxation – these two elements go hand in hand despite being somewhat different from one another. Relaxation is clearing one’s mind of any negative emotions and thoughts, while concentration is making sure you are able to focus on certain things without giving in to distractions. Both are key elements in astral projection, and being strong in both aids in pulling the astral body out of the physical much easier. There are many ways to be able to relax and concentrate, as we have detailed in previous blog posts regarding meditation and lucid dreaming, but some of the basics include using a binaural beats track, having the right environment and surroundings, performing a proper mantra, and visualizing.
  3. Separation – this is the final element in astral projection, as this is when the astral body breaks free of the physical body and is able to travel beyond physical boundaries. This final step is the most critical, and the most difficult, as it heavily relies on the first 2 elements. Any doubt, any fear, any loss of relaxation or concentration and the separation procedure may be interrupted, or even outright become unreachable for that session. We will discuss the details of separation in the next part of the beginner’s guide to astral projection, but what you need to remember is the precursor of separation: a buzzing or vibrating feeling where you can feel like you’re breaking free off your skin. If you have felt this while sleeping without even knowing what astral projection is, you might have unknowingly started the process naturally! Once the vibrations begin and takes hold of you, this is when you can “peel off” or “roll over” or “pull away” (terms we will go into detail in the follow up post) and begin your astral projection journey!

Study these three basic components, and use our blog to be able to fully understand them. Once you’re ready, go to part 2 of our beginner’s guide to astral projection and let’s break down the step by step process needed. Also, don’t forget to prepare a binaural beats track for astral projection, like this one, to get yourself ready!

The Beginner’s Guide To Astral Projection (Part 2)

Last time, we discussed the general info about astral projection, from belief to the desire to the relaxation and to the separation. Here in Part 2, we’re going to discuss the step by step process of astral projection, leading up to the separation phase. There are many various methods to do this, but the list below is a basic set of movements that anyone can try. Let’s get right to it!

The set-up

Just like lucid dreaming, it is important to have the right set-up for astral projection. This starts with your room. Our guide to setting up the room for lucid dreaming is virtually the same as setting up the room for astral projection, so you can read more about the details there.  (insert in-link here)
One thing that can truly help in this part is playing a binaural beats track for astral projection. This is an element that can make the separation phase much easier to perform, so make sure a track is ready to be played once you’re ready to begin.

Preparing the body

Once your room is ready, it is time to prepare your body. Here are the steps:
1.)    Lie down on your bed, make sure you’re on your back. Close your eyes, empty the mind, and concentrate on being aware of your body and the sensations it feels. If you are using a binaural beats track for astral projection, play it at this point.
2.)    Take long deep breaths, and exhale all the way. No need to hold your breath, just breathe naturally and have a good flow. Relax. Focus on your breathing and nothing else.
3.)    Gently stimulate your body’s sensations by flexing your muscles and then relaxing, until physical relaxation is reached. What this does is help loosen the body and not have any tension that can cause you to be distracted.
Stay at this stage until you feel the queues for the next steps below.

Passionflower for Stress, Anxiety and Insomnia

by Meghan Telpner

I first discovered the beauty and magic of passionflower the first time I visited St. Lucia in 2004. I had known for awhile that passionflower had wonderfully calming effects, but I’d never witnessed how stunning and unique it was in person.

Passionflower, or Passiflora incarnata, is one of my favourite herbs because of its incredible ability to calm the nerves, reduce anxiety, help with insomnia, soothe nervous tension and depress the central nervous system. The flowers, leaves and stems are used to produce the plant-powered medicine.

Incorporating passionflower into your life can help with:

Anxiety/Panic

Passionflower is amazingly useful for anxiety, panic, nervousness and restlessness. Its anti-spasmodic properties means it can help with muscle tension and headaches, too – both of which can happen when we feel stressed and harried. There is some solid evidence to back this up, such as:

  • A systematic review of 24 studies of herbal supplements – including those that used passionflower alone and those which used it in combination with other herbal therapies – concluded it is an effective method for addressing anxiety without serious side effects.
  • In this controlled trial, participants with generalized anxiety randomly took either passionflower or oxazepam (a benzodiazepine) every day for four weeks. At the end of the trial period, researchers noted that while both treatments were equally effective, the oxazepam had more side effects and impaired job performance. Advantage passionflower!
  • Having surgery? Passionflower might help. This study randomly gave passionflower or a placebo to patients getting ready for surgery. The people who took passionflower reported feeling far less anxious.
  • No one loves going to the dentist, but this study showed that taking drops of passionflower extract significantly reduced dental anxiety (yes, that’s a thing).

Insomnia

You can imagine that when you’re cool and calm, you’re more likely to fall asleep. While there have been more animal studies that point to passionflower’s effectiveness, there are a couple of human studies that show that it works.

  • In this trial, people drank passionflower tea for a week and then a placebo tea for a week. At the end of each week, researchers performed polysomnography (a sleep study that tests brain waves, heart rates, breathing, movement, etc.) and surveyed participants about their anxiety levels. The sleep quality with passionflower was much better than the placebo.
  • In another clinical trial, patients took either a herbal supplement with passionflower and Valerian root or zolpidem, a sedative used to treat insomnia. After two weeks, researchers discovered that both treatments successfully helped people fall asleep more quickly, sleep longer and reduced their waking in the night. Yet – similar to the anxiety study I mentioned above, the passionflower had far fewer side effects than the zolpidem.

Neuralgia

Because of its calming and analgesic properties, passionflower can be immensely helpful in reducing nerve pain.

  • In this study of menopausal women, the women taking passionflower reported experiencing fewer symptoms like headaches, hot flashes, anger, insomnia and depression.

Consciousness – Where Does it Come From? And How Does It Affect Our Physical Material World? (Podcast)

by Arjun Walia

Consciousness. What is it? Where does it comes from? And what type of connection does it have to physical-material reality? These questions, and more, are what we explored in our most recent Podcast, hosted by CE founder Joe Martino, when we sat down with neuroscientist Dr. Mario Beauregard

We dived into non-material science, the importance and validity behind it, and how we’re currently living in a second scientific revolution.

Many studies in the fields of quantum physics as well as neuroscience have shown what’s now, scientifically speaking, undeniable – that consciousness has a direct effect on our physical material world. Whether it be meditators trying to influence quantum systems at a distance, examples of telepathy, remote viewing, or the fact that various individuals within several different countries governments (under the watch of their Department of Defence) have had ‘special’ abilities.

You can read more about that and see some actual examples in the article linked below, as well as similar topics that are discussed in the podcast.

On a side note, did you know that  as far back as 1999, statistics professor Jessica Utts at UC Irvine, published a paper showing that parapsychological experiments have produced much stronger results than those showing a daily dose of aspirin helping to prevent heart attacks. Utts also showed that these results are much stronger than the research behind various drugs like antiplatelets, for example.

Existentialism: A Universe of One

Existentialism is a word used to define and explain something that we can commonly call living in the now. Furthermore it is about consciously living in the moment and being responsible for developing this existence through free-will.

There were many philosophers during the 19th and 20th century that shared a mutual understanding of our involvement in co-creating how life unfolds and what it means. These individuals basically suggested that being aware of and actively participating with this moment will result in everything becoming authentic. Wikipedia shares the following information about two of these philosophers.

Søren Kierkegaard was a Danish philosopher. He is generally considered to have been the first existentialist philosopher, though he did not use the term existentialism. He proposed that each individual—not society or religion—is solely responsible for giving meaning to life and living it passionately and sincerely, or “authentically”.

Jean-Paul Charles Aymard Sartre (1905 – 1980) was a French philosopher. He wrote:
At first man is nothing. Only afterward will he be something, and he himself will have made what he will be.

Existentialism and You

However we should not concern ourselves with the written details of these scholars. It is spiritually more beneficial to become aware of how this signpost to conscious living can help us. Existentialism could be considered a key stepping stone to experiencing balance and spiritual fulfillment.

Let’s do away with the philosophical words and jargon relating to Existentialism. We can simplify this by acknowledging that it involves a clear awareness of now, being responsible for now and deciding in the now.

The Altered States of Sensory Deprivation

by Derek Beres

Chatting with dolphins in order to communicate with extraterrestrials might seem a red flag when considering a researcher. Indeed, John C Lilly was a polarizing figure in the sixties and beyond. One infamous project included his assistant living with a dolphin in a floating living room where dialogue became rather intimate. For all his radical ideas, however, the man was onto something.

Lilly developed a fascination with psychedelics after reading Brave New World, devoting his career to neurophysiology, among other pursuits. He had a passion for the origins and expansion of consciousness. After volunteering as a guinea pig for a protein-free diet in hopes of learning more about bodily production of glycocyamine, he pushed his physical and mental boundaries whenever possible. In his mind the medical and the mystical collided.

While today his dolphin experiment has become legendary in a ‘can you believe that happened’ sort of Internet meme way, Lilly contributed much to biophysics, computer science, and nueroanatomy. Arguably his greatest invention is the sensory deprivation tank, today more commonly known as a float tank.

Emboldened by self-research with LSD, Lilly strove to isolate the human brain from external stimulation. His first tank was clunky—it involved wearing a wet suit and breathing apparatus as you were submerged underwater. A few tweaks led to the creation of an enclosed pool filled with Epsom salt in which you carelessly float naked in total darkness and silence.

Last Friday I ventured to Just Float in Pasadena to see how care-less I could become. One of floating’s researched benefits is anxiety reduction, as well as helping with chronic stress-related diseases. Having listened to Joe Rogan’s anecdotal experiences with float tanks and psychedelics for years, I weighed the benefit of five milligrams of cannabis, something Lilly would have condoned. I decided on sobriety, focusing instead on my meditation and breathing practices.

The space itself is beautiful. I’ve read horror stories about tank smell and size. While I’m not personally claustrophobic, Just Float’s tanks are enormous; total darkness might be an issue, however. Given that I’ve lived in cities for twenty-two years, I crave the dark as much as silence. From the first minute the tank felt like home.

We have an odd relationships with relaxation in our culture. Alcohol, scrolling social media feeds, and channel surfing on the couch might appear calming, but in the long run our nervous systems take the brunt of such habits. The first five minutes of my float simply involved letting my body soften into the water. My neck took at least that long to unwind, my spine offering a series of thoracic pops along the way.

Once my body surrendered I turned to my breath. Arms outstretched, legs heavy, the only other time I’ve ever floated was out of an airplane—also a much different experience. This was not creating adrenaline and cortisol, but reducing them. As the music faded a deep silence kicked in, my breathing as large as the tank, as large I could imagine my body stretching into all directions to be.

While there’s no way to keep actual time, I’d guess the first half was spent in meditation: breath in, breath out, nothing more, nothing more necessary. It’s a luxury to not have to be anywhere with nothing to do. Odd as it sounds, this mindset requires diligence and patience—tuning in and dropping out—which is why float tanks are quickly increasing in popularity.

Consciousness Mechanics: 3D Shadow Principle

The 3D shadow principle is that the 3D physical world is likened to a shadow of a higher dimensional (HD) structure, no different than how the 2D surface of a shadow is but a translated portion of a 3D structure. A glimpse of this HD structure is perceived physically from the human perspective as a 3D world that appears to constantly change linearly in a momentary volume of time.
