Resonance, Dissonance & Discernment

[This is the second sample chapter I'm offering here. I hope readers enjoy it and find it of help. I sincerely hope that it helps people sort through all the information we are being inundated with and find your way through it all anchored in your own personal truth.

Consider that with our expanded abilities turned off, unacknowledged or not perceivable, we are in many ways equivalent to someone blind, deaf and dumb on our own world.

Not having access to our expanded senses, such as telepathy, tel-empathy, clairvoyance, clairaudience, teleportation, psycho-kinesis, and more, we are very vulnerable. We don’t have the ability to fully sense what is going on around us, to feel the motivations of those interacting with us. We have to adopt an overarching sense of caution about everything. We have been forced to pass things through the rational mind, governed by an ego conditioned by past experiences to look for threats to existence and react with suspicion, or even some degree of paranoia at what crosses our paths. This has been played upon by those in power who know this and wish to keep us blind, deaf and dumb, anchored in an ego-paranoid state. They know that keeping the human ego enslaved by fear will prevent the expansion of awareness necessary to activate the latent, star ancestor parts of our DNA that will give us back our expanded senses and abilities.

I have found through experience that the energy of fear in the body inhibits the expansion of extra-dimensional awareness. The more I moved beyond my fear, the more my consciousness began to light up. In lectures by Gregg Braden, he teaches about scientific findings that the energy of fear causes our very strands of DNA to wind up tightly, restricting any access to the parts of it that could hold the keys to our spiritual evolution. Cultivating the love, compassion and joy inherent in understanding the very essence of who we truly are allows that DNA to unwind and relax. In this relaxed state, the energy waveforms of these positive, expansive emotions move through it, turning more and more of it on for our spiritual unfoldment, giving us access to greater realms of awareness.

Why do you suppose so much fear is dished up each day over televised media outlets about terrorism, war, swine flu and more? They want to keep us energetically blind, deaf and dumb.

We have to work our way back to a consciousness of unity, wholeness, and awareness of the interconnectivity of us all, of the Oneness of the Universe. We have learn to navigate the difficult task of maintaining our open sensitivity in a world whose chaos can feel like we are weathering an energetic hurricane.

What is Resonance? Dissonance?

As far back as the 1960s or earlier, people have talked of picking up good vibes or bad vibes. The hit single “Good Vibrations” by the Beach Boys signaled an entry into popular culture of peoples’ early sense of picking up vibrational energy.

“That really resonates with me,” is an expression we hear quite often in our society today, especially within the growing population of people whose sensitivity to the energetic and vibrational world around them is increasing.

There are many definitions of resonance relating to various disciplinary studies, however this one, from the World English Dictionary online, relates best to the word as it is falling into more common language usage; “sound produced by a body vibrating in sympathy with a neighboring source of sound.”

In the chapter on Consciousness, I used musical metaphor to describe the vibratory properties of various dimensions and their densities as single notes and octaves or families of notes. To vibrate in sympathy with a neighboring source of sound, or energy, is to be in resonance with it in a melodic or harmonious way.

In contrast, dissonance is the opposite of resonance. Dissonance is produced when sounds – or energies – played together or in simultaneous proximity to each other produce disharmony, discord, cacophony. Unpleasant, even intolerable, noise. This can be subtle and experienced in the vibratory energy system of a person as an irritation. Or it can be so pronounced and blatant as to cause people to do all they can to get away from the noise – auditory and/or vibratory.

I know that when I lived in larger urban areas of dense population, I often felt I needed to shut down energetically just to be able to exist there. To open to my sensitivity was to open to a bombardment of psychic noise from thousands of minds in proximity, many of which were vibrating at dissonant frequencies to my own. So, like a hermit crab, I pulled into my shell. I needed to learn how to open to my sensitivity and screen or reflect back the energies I didn’t want to affect me. Moving to Durango, Colorado with a lower population density helped with this. A better place for learning how to be open, yet develop the necessary energy shielding.

I use a visualization of my auric field being encased in an egg-shaped reflective glass shield that allows me to interact with others around me, but reflects any unwanted energies coming in back to the sender. Within this shield I visualize a brillian white light shot through with rays of golden iridescence. When I had my session with Mary Rodwell where I visited my people, it was quite a confirmation that the reason white light with rays of golden iridescence occurred to me was because my people live in such light and energy on their ship.

The shielding works well with one caveat; if we have a marked adversarial relationship with someone who has dissonant energy from our own, then there is an energy cord between that person and ourselves that will bypass our shielding and still directly affect us. In such cases, we need to do all we can to heal, forgive and let go of the adversarial relationship.

For those of us with a higher inherent sensitivity that is expressing itself in us, I think staying in our “shells” is a protective strategy that many of us employ to survive in an overwhelmingly high intensity environment of increasing extremes. The question to wonder about is, “How can I remain open in my sensitivity and still protect my energy system?”

How does Discernment Differ from Judgment?

Dictionary definitions of discernment are often related back to judgment, but I choose to opt for a new definition here, one that is shared in the communities of higher consciousness individuals. We need a term that applies to how we use the information we gather from our experiences of resonance and dissonance.

So, discernment to me has come to mean developing the ability to feel and sense in an ever-deeper way the energies around us emanating from people, places, things and situations. We may experience these as resonant, dissonant or neutral. Such sensory information, run through our feeling filters, can inform us in a way that helps us to assess the benefits or risks of a particular course of action. Rather than proceeding from sets of structured beliefs or ideologies drilled into us by rote, we become receptive and responsive to the dance of energies swirling about us in our world. By their feel to us, we move closer to what we harmonize with, and away from that which jangles in our energy system as discord.

Judgment, from where I stand today, is an extract, often emotionally charged, that comes from indoctrination to rigid sets of belief systems when people encounter something that runs contrary to their particular ideologies. If the belief systems are not open, fluid and responsive to change and new information, creating an evolving process of reformulation as new data comes to light, then we have judgment – rigid, unyielding, resolute. A “Don’t try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is made up,” kind of adversarial stance that refuses to even try to think outside of its paradigm-box. In a black and white kind of way, we could say that “bad judgment” is the product of a closed mind, while “good judgment” flows from a more open mind, a willingness to hear and to see, though the outcome may still be influenced by indoctrinated belief systems. The term “cognitive dissonance” has been coined to describe the internal conflict that arises within individuals who encounter information that challenges their cherished beliefs. The energy and vibration of truth is incompatible (dissonant) with ideologies based in indoctrination through institutional structures with agendas of control.

As we continue to consciously choose harmony and create harmony in our lives and environments, our bodies and therefore our consciousness can begin to unwind and expand. This is one more reason why, when I look at the gross corporate exploitation of the environment for financial gain and power, I have to conclude that the most hidden and covert reason for it is to slow the expansion of human consciousness. Understanding this is the key to overcoming it and choosing to take whatever steps we can to expand our consciousness and multi-dimensional awareness regardless of what “they” are doing. To not understand what’s going on carries the risk of being caught up in a whirlwind of negative emotional states about widespread destruction going on all around us, on multiple levels. This is why balancing every angering or depressing thing going on in the world with five positive, joy-inspiring personal actions is so important. I don’t believe in sticking our heads in the sand and ignoring what problems are going on in the world. I feel if we do this, we do it at our own peril. But in observing it all, then mindfully and positively dealing with it, finding a way to rise above it, the chaotic situations of the world truly lose their power over us. When they lose their power over us, they stop restricting our spiritual evolution.

And our spiritual evolution may be the only way to truly correct the problems we see around us.

Mustering up local militias and creating civil wars to try and wrest power from the elite groups of this world is not the answer. If we have not learned by now that war and terror only perpetuates more of the same, then there is little hope left for us as a species. It’s time for a new strategy. One based in spiritual evolution and understanding of the power of our own consciousness, especially as a unified collective. Love is the unifying energy that can bring us together. It must also be a conscious choice made day by day, and as time moves on and accelerates, it may even need to be made moment by moment.

I’m not talking about cloying, sentimental love. I’m talking about looking at the situations around us and assessing the simple difference between those things we can do nothing about and moving quickly to seeing what we can make better in some way for all concerned by our own actions. When we ask ourselves, or a person or group who needs help, “How can I help?” we are exercising the power of unifying love. Relief, appreciation and gratitude of such actions leads to moments of quiet joy and peace, even celebration. Bonding. Unity. There is nothing so moving in movies – movies being the storytelling vehicles of our age – as when two adversaries suddenly discover a common ground between them that inspires them to lay down their arms and join together in common cause. This creates fertile ground for the expansion of human awareness.

Beauty, balance and harmony are natural states of being, both energizing and relaxing. To be attracted to them and to create them not only makes us feel good, it also attracts like energies to us – including the more spiritually evolved and benevolent extraterrestrial races. Most such beings likely have far more finely developed extra-sensory abilities that operate at far greater ranges than we are currently aware of in ourselves. As humanity’s spiritual evolution expands, they are aware of it, and they are attracted to it. They are likely even helping it along and crop circles appear to be one manifestation of this help.

Multi-dimensional awareness is part of us. It’s interwoven into the very fabric of who we are as whole human beings. We’ve just been well conditioned down through the ages to shut it out of our conscious awareness. Our emotions, our minds and our spirits are the parts of us that extend into dimensions beyond this 3D one that we have allowed to take up most of our attention. They are meant to work holistically, together in concert. Yet we have split ourselves into pieces. We exalt the mind and mental abilities in this world. We love our emotions when they bring us pleasure, revile them and learn not to trust them when they bring us pain, grief and suffering. We don’t understand them and for many of us they are states that seem to happen to us willy-nilly, out of our control. We treat them like second-class parts of ourselves while we strive to be mentally smart and sharp in a world where the person with the most clever mind appears to win. The spirit part of us, our soul, we have made so conceptually intangible that many people even doubt its existence at all. Most traditional, structured religions have exploited people’s need to reach “beyond” into the realm of spirit. They have managed and manipulated this spiritual need with sets of beliefs that keep real knowledge of the spiritual realms out of reach. People fear death out of a complete lack of experiential understanding of who and what they really are. And people who fear death are far easier to control.

Yet if we undertake a study of what the pioneers of consciousness are discovering, we learn that death is an illusion. And if we just spend some time practicing with the requisite desire and intent to learn for ourselves, we can experience the truth of this for ourselves. Many people are turning today to psychoactive plants for a more swift opening to extra-dimensional knowing. I feel this is in itself a sign of the process of awakening accelerating on Earth. To spend twenty years meditating in a cave in the Himalayas is a luxury of time most of us can no longer afford to find the answers we are all seeking to the mystery of our existence. The “Shift of the Ages” is upon us.

A Human Being is a Community of Many Voices

There are many voices that speak in our minds, telling us to do this and avoid that. How do we pick out “the still, small voice” of our intuitive expanded awareness from this inner chorus?

In the previous chapter, I discussed spirit, mind and emotions. Spirit is the super-conscious, our realm expanded awareness, the part of us that knows our interconnectedness with All-That-Is. From it flows those flashes of insight and inspiration that we perceive directly and spontaneously without analysis or logic. Mind is the computer processing unit that interfaces with our biological hardware, the brain. It is constantly applying analysis, logic and solutions to our lives through the conscious mind. Then we have our emotions, the tip of a huge iceberg which we see and acknowledge, with so much more that remains hidden and out of sight in our subconscious.

The first step in picking out the still, small voice of our expanded intuitive sense within is to learn to, at any given time, identify what emotions we are feeling. Emotions are a wonderful gift. Essentially they are part of us that helps us survive and thrive as human beings. But when they are artificially stimulated by whatever means to extremes, again and again, confusing us mentally and exhausting our adrenals, they jam our intuitive radar. If you can begin to identify what emotions you are experiencing at a given time and what stimulated them, then you can take steps to shift your emotional energy to a quieter, calmer state that gives insight and inspiration a chance to surface, including the insight you need at that particular moment to navigate the next steps you need to take, especially in that present moment.

Incoming stimulus immediately generates thoughts in the mind and at the speed of those thoughts, emotions are generated in the body through the release of neuropeptides. We experience this instantaneously. The mind could yell “THREAT!” from something it sees, and our body is immediately poised for fight or flight. Yet if it was something we saw on TV, then there is no immediate threat. The living room is still as it was before we turned on the TV. But our ancient biological mechanisms are activated anyway. You might feel tension in your solar plexus, your breathing may have gotten shallow. You might feel a tightening along your spine, maybe in the neck and shoulders. Your throat might feel tight. This is just one example.

The sensations your body feels are the keys to identifying the emotion, or the layers of emotions you are feeling. If you can’t quite identify and name an emotion, don’t concern yourself about it. Just notice what sensations you feel in your body and notice the quality of your breathing. Observe your immediate environment and assess it. If there is no call to immediate action, then sit gently straight in a kitchen chair and begin to breathe, gently and deeply taking in as much air as possible all the way into your lungs. Let your chest and belly expand, let your spine gently undulate with each breath. Keep it up until you feel calm begin to come in again.

Another pranayama breathing technique is alternate nostril breathing. Closing or covering one nostril, breathe deeply into the open one. At the top of the inhale, close the open nostril and exhale through the other. Then inhale through that nostril as well, close it, and exhale through the opposite one. The rhythm is; one nostril closed, inhale through the other, close that one, exhale, inhale, close the opposite, exhale, inhale, and so forth. Continue for at least ten cycles or until you feel more peaceful again.

Being able to identify what you’re feeling in your body can also help you to identify what voice you may be hearing in your mind. Each emotion has a voice of aversion or desire. We are pain-avoiding, pleasure and comfort-seeking beings. Fear, anger, grief will be voices of aversion. Our pleasure and comfort-seeking natures will whisper in our ear with voices of desire. These often combine to our detriment or real threat if the incoming information has been designed to produce a particular outcome in us. We have to be careful that those voices are not activated and our actions taken as a knee-jerk reaction by data that was contrived to push us in a “planned” direction.

Example: Fear of swine flu virus, H1N1, spurred many people to get vaccinations – they were listening to the voice of fear in themselves, generated by the voices of authorities they trusted. The vaccinations turned out to be worse than the flu, causing deaths in some children and crippling health complications in other young people and adults. There was a huge increase in miscarriages for pregnant women who received the vaccine. This yet another example of betrayal of peoples’ trust by authorities that are supposed to be in charge of the public welfare. This betrayal has led to even more people getting wise to the fact that the very officials positioned in such agencies are failing in their mandates. Following the money reveals that there is far less concern about public safety than safeguarding the profits corporations wished to gain from the sales of their vaccine, that cost them plenty to develop.

Where did the H1N1 virus come from? Was it a randomly mutated flu virus or something else? What was the true agenda of the H1N1 vaccine? There is a great deal of reliable and researched information that flooded the internet about it’s flaws and consequences, as well as possible agendas. People need to look at and assess such data for themselves through both educating themselves and paying attention to the energetic feel of such information.

Through a combination of education and intuition, I’ve come to feel that viruses are not the problem. Stress from living in a chaotic society, environmental toxins and additives in food, water and air that undermine our immune system are the problems. Make a commitment to consuming clean foods and water and you will learn that these choices are also under pressure to be taken away from us. Follow the money, look at what corporations and individuals stand to profit from taking away our freedom to live as we choose for ourselves. Keep peeling away the layers and looking deeper. Stopping or slowing the expansion of human awareness seems to be at the deepest core of it all.

The purpose of this chapter is to help you learn to expand your ability through your intuitional radar to assess and find your way through these times. It will not be foolproof in the beginning. It still is not completely foolproof for me, though it is improving greatly. No human being can claim absolute infallibility. The final assessment of resonance, dissonance and discernment, as well as the final choice, is always up to the individual. No other person can choose for us. We learn through trial and error, as with any new skill and ability we are learning to use. All we can do is learn to watch those flashes of insight and then choose to act on them or not. Start your practice with easy choices, like asking yourself which will be the fastest, smoothest route to drive to the grocery store. As the flash of spontaneous insight appears at the forefront of your mind, act on it. You’ll come to discern when you are picking up correctly on intuition and when you second guess yourself with analysis and logic by the results you get.

If you are in an emotional state when you are trying to make a choice, bouncing back and forth between your emotions and your analytical mind, you are generally caught in the pain-avoiding, pleasure or comfort-seeking tug-of-war. In the absence of intuition, calming yourself and educating yourself is the next best thing.

Perceiving & Recognizing Resonance and Dissonance & Using them for Discernment

There are ways we can tangibly see and feel the effects of vibrations. Then we take the known facts and understandings of our bodies and move forward from there.

If you set a clear glass of water on the table and drum next to it with your fingers, you’ll see the vibrations of your drumming picked up by the sensitive medium of the water. If you sing a few notes over the water, also watching it carefully, you will also see the water’s response to the vibration of your voice. Know that the water is picking up vibrations from the entire environment around you, though the effects may be so subtle, you eyes don’t pick up any disturbance of the water.

Our bodies are 70% water, always registering incoming vibrations of all kinds, and sending out others to the world around us. Most of it takes place on an unconscious level. But through the body, tuning in more and more attentively to every sensation it feels, at subtler and subtler levels, we can train ourselves to pick up on the vibrational energy interaction that is always going on. The sensations we feel in our bodies are the movements of energy and vibration through it. There is usually so much various sensation going on that we tune most of it out. We use the faculty of our conscious minds and their focus on the abstractions of thoughts to screen out the background hum of body sensations and feelings. It’s when something more profound – resonant or dissonant – enters the energy system of our body that it commands our attention. Yet we can train ourselves to pay attention to the finer sensations in the body, to notice the movement of vibratory energy as sensation, like the sound of a soft voice.

It’s also worth noting here that our bodies also have a crystalline aspect to them in the very matrices of how our molecules are arranged, including our DNA. Crystalline structures are also very sensitive to frequencies and vibratory energy. When subjected to the movement of energy, such as emotion, they emit very subtle biological piezoelectric energy. I feel there is a high likelihood that our DNA as a crystalline structure is a transmitter – receiver between our dimensional realities and Source Consciousness – Source Consciousness actively learning about Itself through our experience and the life-sustaining energy of Source being transmitted back to us through this energy network. How much more vital it becomes with such knowledge to keep moving beyond constrictions that fear has over our lives, on our very vibrational and biological systems! When our DNA is constricted, how well can it function as the transmitter – receiver it is designed to be?

We can learn to tune into and discern a great deal about the resonance or dissonance of vibrational energy by just paying attention to the nature and quality of the incoming vibrations of various types of data by how they feel in our bodies and register on our psyches.

How does it feel to be in resonance with something? What does dissonance feel like?

The best way is again to return to musical metaphor. If you have or can find a piano or keyboard, you can find out how resonance and dissonance feels through sound and hearing. A single note has a “true” quality to it. It simply is. A harmonious chord played on the same keyboard is composed of two or more true notes in vibrational resonance, generally a full note apart from each other. Notice how it feels in your body, how your body responds to single true notes and harmonious chords.

Now take a single key and play it together with the key immediately preceding or after your chosen note. The two played together have a sour, discordant quality. Notice your body’s reaction to these dissonant sounds.

Now you know how it feels in your body to play a resonant, harmonious chord of music, and in contrast how it feels to strike two or more notes that are discordant… a “true” note, and one just close enough but “off” enough to create a third, bad feeling tone that is dissonant. Playing around with harmony and discord on a keyboard can teach us a lot about information that we see or hear that has a particular feel to it in our bodies.

One you learn to recognize this process at a deeper level for yourself, you might be surprised to realize just how much the energy of resonance and dissonance may have been affecting how you’ve been responding to the world around you from an unconscious level. It functions in us at the unconscious levels all the time, and we respond to it at unconscious levels. We can learn, through using our bodies as the wonderful sensory instruments they are, how to bring that awareness to the conscious level.

Accessing Our Intuition

Just as I was told by my guides that I had to learn this process on my own, so must you. As they said, we have too many outer voices of authority on this world. We listen to them at the possible risk of losing touch with our own inner ability to assess the world around us. This process of awakening will be personal to each of you and perhaps slightly differently perceived and understood according to your individual life experience. It is my hope that you will develop the capacity to add your intuitive gifts to your set of assessment tools for navigating life on Earth. Working in balance with each other, understanding each of these facets of ourselves, our intuition, our minds and our emotions, each can be assets rather than liabilities.

And intuition may be a doorway we open to a whole new human adventure. A rediscovery of abilities locked away in our consciousness that we think are only possible through exterior mechanisms and technology now.

I am sharing with you my process and discoveries as a map of direction. This map is for your own personal empowerment. Because in this world, without our expanded abilities to perceive and discern, we are walking targets for every kind of information or disinformation out there – increasingly huge volumes of it – with various agendas to exact upon us. Trying to process it all with logic and analysis through the mind, our emotions reacting to it as well, is becoming overwhelming.

We need to find a better way. We need to tune our personal intuitional radar.

In order to access intuition, we need to be in a calm and centered state. Emotions are quieted, and the mind’s continual spin of thoughts is also calmed, or running under the surface of the conscious mind rather than cluttering it.

In the chapter “Reclaiming Freedom” I discussed meditation as a strategy for opening to a new identity of who we really are by developing an awareness of, and relationship with the essence of ourselves that is the inner witness – consciousness observing our lives happening around us. The process of bringing ourselves into a centered stillpoint, where emotions and the mind are at peace, or where our awareness can move beyond them, is key to developing the ability to sift through the various voices of the inner chorus inside us. To get in touch with that still, small voice connected to our super-consciousness that can bring those flashes of insight and intuition that can help us to navigate our lives.

We navigate in these bodies within the space and time created through the third dimension. The super-consciousness operates outside of this in a realm of no-time and no-space. The quantum principle of super-positioning, where all possibilities exist at once until consciousness selects one to focus upon and actualizes it, could be the model for how this works. Our super-consciousness may have the ability to instantly access the possibilities and bring us the intuitive flash that indicates what direction to move in. It can guide us from a holistic perspective not available to us when we are operating in a linear, 3D manner.

Emotions will be generated from these flashes of insight and intuition just as they are from the thoughts and input to the conscious mind. They are often moving and profound. It is through our own inner inquiry process that we learn to distinguish between our emotional responses to spontaneous insight and intuition and the emotional knee-jerk reactions to outer world stimulus and thoughts.

Frequencies of Truth & Disinformation

From what I’ve come to understand about the energetic nature of everything in the universe, truth stands in direct melodic or harmonic vibration to its causative vibratory source.

Let’s examine truth and lies for a moment. What exactly are they?

Like a single “true” note from a musical instrument, truth has a resonant clear, clean vibration. Truth simply is.

If a truth, any truths about any act or occurrence would bring consequences down on someone’s head if they were known, and this person or group fears those consequences, then out of that fear, they lie. There are various ways to lie. There are direct lies and denial. There are half-lies and lies of withholding. All these varieties of lying are kith and kin to each other.

All seek to hide or obfuscate the truth. But it’s like trying to hide a light under a blanket – the least little wrinkle, minute hole, or the folds of the blanket bunching up in a particular way, little rays of the light shine forth, calling attention to the hidden light of the truth.

Direct lies seldom hold up because the truth of a thing simply is. When such a lie is invented, the person fabricating it has to remember it precisely. Because it is a fabrication to hide a truth, often something can be missed in fabricating a complete lie. Someone can point out an inconsistency in the “story”. At that point the lying person can either opt to tell the truth or tell yet another lie to cover the hole they left in their original lie. If they are afraid enough of consequences, they will tell another lie. Sir Walter Scott’s words, “Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” end up being spot on.

Withholds simply hold back the truth of what exists or what has been brought into being behind barriers of secrecy. These can be very dangerous. If technology that has been discussed in conspiracy circles on the web has even a shred of truth to it, then things like Project Bluebeam, scalar weather control or earthquake-volcano control technologies, HAARP and chemtrails are a real threat to unsuspecting populations around the world. Because most of humanity cannot conceive of the kind of inhumanity that some are capable of in their quest for power and control, they will not comprehend or accept such inhumanity. They also will shun the thought that such exotic technologies could exist or be used against them.

Denial when one knows the truth is another kind of direct lie. It can only be perpetuated successfully by authority figures who engender a general public trust. There is a counter-attack of ridicule on those people that the purveyors of denial fear might expose the truth. “People who see UFOs or claim abductions are crazy or drunk” is an example of this. Since people generally trust the source of such denial they fall in line with the denial, make it part of their belief system. The real tragedy here is for those who have experienced an undeniable sighting or some kind of contact experience; they know the denial is a lie. But out of the fear of ridicule placed on them or direct threats to their lives, they keep quiet about it. Denial only works as long as people are convinced to fall in line with it by trust in authority or fear of consequences to themselves if they tell their truth. Denial by trust in authority, over many years, makes such denial a solid thought structure within a society. It is one of those things that people come to accept by rote as “just the way it is” with little to no questioning. It is the breakdown in trust of authority figures, especially in the Bush-Cheney years, that has caused more and more people to question. And more people are risking to come forward with their experiences, and finding strength in numbers.

Half-lies can be some of the most insidious. Liars have learned that direct lies are often flawed from their inception, especially from an energetic and vibrational sense. What’s more, I suspect those with access to secret knowledge and research on what truly constitutes a human being – or a spiritual being having a human experience – know that humanity has a latent sixth sense. Sayings like, “I have a hunch” or “I have a gut feeling about this” illustrate this. Unfortunately when people are so conditioned and indoctrinated to a bubble world reality, they can mistake hunches or gut feelings for emotionally-based cognitive dissonance – their conditioned and indoctrinated paradigm coming into conflict with a very real truth that they may not want to accept. Mental and emotional chaos can result. It is resolved in a couple of ways. One is by resolutely returning to denial of the truth they’ve uncovered, no matter how stark and obvious its veracity is. The other is to become passably comfortable with the discomfort of the cognitive dissonance. To begin to examine where the particular truth you stumbled upon takes you and having the courage to follow its various threads and paths and stay open to where they lead. Finally, cognitive dissonance fades away and a new appreciation of truth and pursuing truth emerges.

Because of humanity’s latent sixth sense or intuition, liars and obfuscators of truth in our society have learned that a lie needs to be linked to a truth in some way. The crux of obfuscation is to confuse, to evade, to be unclear… to “darken”. The truth they try to link to their lie, denial or withhold has a clear, clean vibration. It becomes like a sugar coating for the dissonant energy of the lie to make it more palatable, more acceptable to those hearing it. Such obfuscators also can use the standard, bubble reality rhetoric that people have learned to not even question over time to seduce them into believing their half-truths.

The blanket of secrecy over the light of truth is getting old and threadbare. It’s unraveling. Some of the people that once held it together are now pulling it apart. More and more light is escaping its folds.

Back to Us, Ourselves

We also need, as individuals, to tune our personal intuitional radar by looking at our own belief sets that we have developed over time and exposure to so much information about the institutional structures that are failing humanity at this time. For those who have been into “conspiracy theories” for a long time, the danger is in falling into having your personal radar scope only select those things that appear on your screen that confirm and justify your beliefs about shadow governments and Illuminati elites. Just be careful that all that is good and beautiful does not escape your notice as well, all the ways in which people are doing amazing acts of kindness and compassion. Remember the formula of looking at five uplifting positives for every fearful negative. If the sun is still shining outside on various days, if the birds are still singing, if your dog still wants to go for a walk and chase a stick you toss into the river, then get out and revel in that as well. Looking at the dark too long and too intently can become a habit, one that feeds all that is dark in the world with your vital life force energy. Back off to keeping a weather eye on it and expand the sweep of your personal radar to include all of what is going on in the world, the beauty and inspiration as well as the things going wrong. Otherwise you may find yourself indeed living exclusively in a world of “Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here”.

The other end of the extreme is not productive either. Like it or not we all live on a world that is made up of positive and negative elements. By shunning the negative completely, you may be hiding your fears in your subconscious where they still sit and pull your strings. To open to them is the first step in freeing yourself from them.

If we distill everything down to love or fear, we have two different vibrations. One, love, is resonant, self-creative, self-sustaining and ever-expansive. Through kindness, joy, sharing, bonding and unity which inspires more of the same, love has the capacity to build upon itself continually and exponentially.

The other, fear, is dissonant, parasitic, entropic. It takes the love vibration and twists it into fear of loss, fear of destruction, fear of, fear of, fear of – fill in the blank. It is love perverted. It has to keep taking love and continuing to apply the off-note “fear of” to the original true vibration of love to keep itself alive. So even again in this way, we have the true vibrational beauty of love, and the dissonance of what fear would twist love into for it’s own ends, out of it’s own fear of ceasing to exist.

Years ago, when I worked with people helping them to clear fear, anger and grief through dance and drumming, I discovered that, once these emotions were drummed or danced to completion and release, an energy and rhythm of joy would flood into them, energizing them. The rhythms and energy of fear, anger and grief would spend themselves in about three to seven minutes of moving expression. The rhythms, movements and energy of joy outlasted the negative emotional states by up to four times that three to seven minutes’ length of time, sometimes even longer. This was yet one more way in which I learned the power of love and all its associated states over those of fear.

This puts into words what I do my best to distinguish for myself on a vibrational level. I know I’m not foolproof. But in learning this and paying attention to my intuitive feelings, I’m doing much better than I used to, trying to navigate only on mind and emotions.

Some people tell me that the shadow government, the Illuminati, or whatever you want to call them are so good they can fake and fool even this kind of discernment.

Everything I’ve learned my whole life in the hard won realm of experience and opening to my expanded awareness, including the quantum models for it that now also inform us, tells me is is another lie trying to trap me in a net of fear. I’m willing to bet my life on the truths I’ve discovered. I know I am more than my body. I know that the more I develop the ability to listen to my intuition, the better I navigate through life. I continue to encounter random synchronicities that amazingly confirm my insights and intuitions.

I can only do the best I know how… simply feel the vibes and take appropriate action on what I sense. It’s working for me.
