Our New Journey
Jun 01, 2016
When I had my life-changing event in 1999 I moved immediately from a primary identification with fear, deprivation, inadequacy and powerlessness into a space of peace and deep trust. I also began to experience a tremendous sense of harmony with life where shifts that I made on the inner plane showed up unmistakably in my outer world.
It was during that time that I was inspired to explain my understanding of what became possible for me as "cultivating prosperity from the inside-out."
When the whole "law of attraction" craze happened, I thought that that explanation (LoA) was an accurate indicator of how I was operating in the world.
However, it quickly became clear that the LoA did not capture the depth and subtleties of what I'd experienced, and I spent years in search of ways to translate my experience into clear steps for others, while watching the many distortions reaching frenzied proportions.
I am clear now that the explanation - which still holds in light of the tremendous cosmic shifts that have taken place since that time - would be "living inner and outer as one."
Another way to say this would be "living the paradox" or "becoming the paradox" which refers to the felt-sense of separation dissolving along with the recognition that one's inner and outer world are intricately linked such that inner shifts become tangible expressions in your environment.
It was this felt experience that I was desperately trying to activate for participants in the classes that I led - for I knew with certainty that this is the truth of our being.
Yet, although most people had series of deeply fulfilling experiences, the core experience of "inner and outer are one" simply did not "land" for most people despite my earnest intentions.
I became convinced that this was due to a flaw in the way I was presenting things and I became compelled to find the keys that would truly make this available for people. I explored every cutting-edge tool I could find and found myself unwilling to "lead" any type of program until I trusted that whatever I was sharing made it possible to bring the experience of "inner and outer are one" online in a true embodied sense.
As Anita Lucia Briggs and I chatted about this yesterday she explained why the tools that we have been exploring together now make "becoming the paradox" accessible as never before,
As she explained, "Separation isn’t there any more. It never was but we did not have the inner faculties to realize integrated oneness. We must now move to this way of operating as our true higher expression. Inner is outer. Your environment is you."
For both Anita and I, the realization that the embodiment of this truth is now available to everyone through the activation of higher faculties is akin to discovering the "holy grail."
As we have played with the combination of elements that invoke these higher faculties - activation of 3 centers, harmonizing of sub-personalities, cultivation of brainwave states and eye movement to release stuck energy all incorporated within the EHS (now known as the "Embodied Harmonics Symbol") - the most astonishing things have come to pass.
It is clear to both of us that we now have the keys to soothe the nervous system and awaken the higher faculties in ways that are paradoxically:
~ simple to utilize and complex in the unfolding
~ easily accessible by all without having to dumb-down the profound nature of what is taking place
~ the practical, on-the-ground application of Almine's most profound esoteric teachings in a way that is now accessible by all
These relatively simple processes lead to embodied recognition of powers within, which are the keys to merging inner and outer and supporting awakening to Infinite power. They capture the simplicity within the complexity.
In other words, as we cultivate our own luminous cocoons we begin to operate outside of the split particles (the previous building blocks of reality) into "tonal luminosity" (the building blocks of the new reality.)
I am sharing this in this space today so that we may all celebrate together. And to offer the first un-official invitation.
In our conversation yesterday Anita said, "I am not at all sure how to start it...but it has to be started."
So we have decided to offer a "dress rehearsal" exploration of this cocoon-cultivation program specifically for those in the Engaging Hope community. It feels important that we dive in without a strategic plan or "polished" web site and training materials.
This will get the program going, which we envision as a series of monthly explorations of different powers to be uncovered within, creating a spiral of evolution to deeper and deeper levels of embodied 'realness'.
In addition, this feels like something that must be a "we" experience from the start for, paradoxically, as the experience of the processes are completely individualized (those who have experienced the processes have had very unique/individual responses to the amalgamation of the tools) it is also true that sharing these experiences within a field will add to the alchemical power for the highest unfoldment.
As we have noted by witnessing what has been taking place here in Engaging Hope, as we inhabit our own individual "cocoons" while simultaneously sharing we spark/ignite one another into higher levels of potency and awareness.
So we do not yet have a start date, sign up page or introductory description of how we will proceed on our journey.
But it feels important that we commit to starting...and see what happens next.
So it is with enthusiasm (and an enlivening sense of angel bumps) that I publicly place this commitment to begin this adventure in this alchemical container today.
Any and all comments, questions, sparks of insights and recognition are most welcome.
