Be Who You Are

Never forget, there’s nothing wrong with you.
You’re not separate from Source.
 
There’s nothing wrong with being “out of alignment”.
Even being “out of alignment” is just part of our experience as a human being.
Even in this state though, we continually are a part of Source consciousness.
 
You haven’t gone off course.
 
The old paradigm was all about expansion and growth.
The idea was that there’s something wrong with being human, and we need to transcend the ego and reach a more enlightened state in order to become whole.
You see this in religions that condemn the human nature, or un-consciousness, in favor of a more divine nature.
 
This is where many people learned to become healers, light workers, star seeds, etc, in order to transform the planet into something “better” than it already is.
 
What if, though, there’s nothing wrong here?
What if you actually didn’t “mess up”, and there’s nothing in your life that needs fixing?
 
Perhaps the experiences we have, which seem to be disharmonious, or “out of alignment” from our Higher Truth, are actually just part of our human experience.
It’s not something we need to get rid of. It’s just an experience that we’re moving through.
It’s beautiful in its own light, and ultimately still a part of the whole.
You are divine, right where you are, even in the middle of your mess.
 
As we transition from the old paradigm into the new, what I’m seeing here is the concept of “healers” being replaced by people who “hold space”.
It’s not that we’re holding space in order to heal, but rather we’re holding space in order to BE.
 
I don’t need to change who I am, I need to BE who I am.
Life is only painful when you resist it. The moment you release resistance, and allow yourself to be fully present in the experience, the pain will dissolve, and all you’re left with is conscious awareness.
I can be aware of what I’m experiencing, without identifying with the pain of it.
 
This is where you find freedom, bliss, peace and love, but it isn’t found by running FROM something, in favor of something else.
It’s only found by being present with what you’re ALREADY experiencing.
 
Be present, and you will find perfection in who you already are.
There’s nothing wrong with you.

Remote Viewing as a form of Astral Travel

I’m realizing, “remote viewing” may actually be a more refined version of astral travel, and it allows you to explore the higher realms much more easily.
Recently when I’ve been going out-of-body, my spirit guides have been telling me not to worry so much about focusing on my Merkaba, which is known to some as the “light body” or spirit vehicle. (It’s even mentioned in the bible as the chariot of fire, which Elijah used to ascend into Heaven).
Instead, I’m learning that it’s easier to “go” places by simply using my consciousness alone.
When you use your “astral body” to travel, you’re doing just that, using a BODY to travel. There is always a process of having to pull that body separate from your physical self, in order to move freely in the spirit realm.
The separation stage is often the most difficult part for some people because they identify with their physical body to such a degree that they think it’s the totality of who they are. This makes it feel like you’re stuck here, because if you can’t perceive anything other than physical, how would you be able to GO anywhere, other than physically.
Using pure consciousness to travel, however, there is no actual separation stage because everything in the universe is connected.
You don’t have to “leave” your body in order to visit another galaxy or higher dimension. You simply FEEL the universe as an extension of yourself, and you’re able to go anywhere.
To separate from your body, would be like cutting off your own arm in order to look at it. It’s much easier to simply shift your awareness to feel your arm instead of actually detaching it from your body in order to see it.
In practical terms that could mean just using an x-ray or microscope to view your arm. This is much like remote viewing. You’re simply using a different modality to change perspectives on what’s already there. This is what you’re doing when you raise your consciousness in order to view other parts of the universe, or even entirely other universes. Instead of actually “going” there with your astral body, you simply tune-in with your consciousness, because it’s literally an extension of your self.
When you do this it may feel like intuition, or that you’re receiving images in your mind, but this is actually a more refined way to astral travel because all you have to do is allow your consciousness to tune-in to what’s there, instead of literally going there.
As a side note, this also makes it easier to view alternate timelines, without being confused about which one is “real”.
One problem most people have when they’re learning to go out-of-body, is that they can’t if their energetic vibration isn’t high enough. It’s much like how when you’re out of shape, there are certain things that you are physically unable to do. Likewise, if you’re not in-tune with your spirit, you can’t perceive anything spiritual.
For example if you’ve never meditated, or detached from your thoughts, it may seem like you’re stuck in your physical body, and that you ARE your physical body. It seems absurd to think that there even IS anything other than what you see physically, if you’ve never experienced anything else.
There is in fact MUCH more to this reality than what you perceive physically.
In the same way that the rainbow spectrum of visible light is only a small fraction of the electromagnetic spectrum, so also is the physical realm only a small portion of the collective universe.
If you’ve ever experienced “deja vu”, or coincidentally “imagined” something happening before it actually happened, you may have actually tapped into Universal Mind without realizing it.
From this perspective, time is not linear, so you are able to experience past present and future, as if they were simply different channels on a TV.
The future is not absolutely set though, and is usually seen in terms of potential timelines, which is why psychics can often be wrong about predicting future events.
Anyways, here is a meditation that can help you raise your consciousness:
-Sit comfortably, or lie on your back with your eyes closed
-Focus on your breathing. You don’t have to breathe any particular way, but just pay attention to every inhale and exhale.
-Using your imagination, visualize seeing your body from a birds-eye-view. See it as if you’re floating along the ceiling, looking at your physical body.
-After focusing here for a few minutes, “zoom out” and visualize overlooking your house.
-Continue doing this, zooming out to overlook the entire city, the entire state, and eventually the entire planet.
-Once you’re in space, focus on BEING the planet itself. In the same way that one blood cell is just a small part of your body, so also is one human just a small part of the Earth.
-With every inhale, focus on taking in the Sun’s energy.
-Feel every breath, as if you are the entire planet itself being alive.
After doing this for 20 minutes or so, you’ll almost sort of forget about your physical body, and you’ll feel more in-tune with the Earth.
Even though it’s “just your imagination”, what you’re doing here is using your mind as a tool to help you step out of your temporal perspective, and tune-in to a higher state of consciousness.
Once you tune-in deeply enough, you’ll start having a greater sense of connection to the planet itself, and you may even receive “downloads” in your intuition about how the Universe works, which is how you’re able to see “beyond the veil”.

Becoming unGrounded

I’ve decided to shift my approach as to how I go about using crystals in my spiritual practice.

As part of my standard routine, I usually dedicate one chakra to each day of the week, as well as one particular crystal to use, which resonates with each chakra. For example, Wednesday I focus on my Heart chakra, so I normally use Rose Quartz.

This has been my normal layout for the past few years, ever since I first started using crystals as a part of my meditation. I experienced something this week though, which has prompted me to rethink which crystals I’m choosing to use.

As I’ve decided to use one particular crystal to resonate with each chakra, the one I’ve been using for my Root chakra is Hematite, and the one I use for my Throat chakra is Kyanite. Both of these stones are known for their ability to “clear” energy. Hematite, I personally have experienced, is VERY powerful at literally “grounding” your energy, much like an electric current is grounded. The excess charge is completely removed.

The first time I experienced this effect on my energy field using Hematite, I had just finished doing a very powerful two hour meditation, after which I decided to go out-of-body and explore the astral realm.
In doing so, the moment I stepped out, and got a chance to look at my energetic body, I immediately noticed how powerfully my energy was being grounded. I had a LOT of energy radiating from me because of how much energy work I’d just done, which attracted several entities in the astral realm. I was completely glowing with energy, and this looks like a beacon of light in the astral realm.
What really got my attention though, is that I could see how much energy I had, but I could also see all the excess being removed from my auric field, which allowed these entities to feast on it. They were literally feasting off of the excess energy my body was giving off, because Hematite grounds you in a way that removes this excess from your energy body.

This isn’t necessarily “bad”, but it did come as a shock for me to see what this stone is literally doing energetically when it “grounds” me.

Although grounding is usually considered to be a good thing that you’re supposed to do regularly, I’m starting to learn that the term “grounding” could actually have more than one meaning.
One definition people use in the spiritual field when they talk about grounding, is to allow yourself to fully phase with the physical dimension. It’s simply, to be fully present, in your physical body, right now.
The reason this is so important is because if you spend too much time day-dreaming in lala land, you’ll always be in lala land, and you’ll never live your life. Be here, now. Experience physical life just as much as you experience your spiritual life.

I’ve actually had an experience before, where I was starting to become TOO ungrounded, and I literally felt my spirit separating itself from my physical body. I had just finished meditating, and within a few minutes after I was done, while I was just casually browsing facebook, I suddenly got the sensation that my body was floating, and I started to realize that my spirit isn’t fully anchored in my body in the physical dimension. I was having a spontaneous out-of-body experience.
Nothing really happened, and I was able to come back pretty easily just by focusing on my body, but it was a pretty eye-opening experience as to how important it is to be grounded, and really anchor yourself into the physical dimension, so you can allow your consciousness to be fully present in your body.

I’m realizing though, this type of “grounding” is actually different than the literal grounding that Hematite does, whereby it releases your excess energy like that of an electrical circuit.

Learning to be grounded, in terms of fully embracing the physical dimension is obviously very important, but I’m starting to think that the type of grounding the Hematite stone does, may not be as necessary as some people claim it is.
I realized this just a couple days ago, as I had been using Hematite for my meditation on Sunday. What I realized is that when Hematite “grounds” your energy, it actually stops you from bringing the energy you acquired during meditation, out of the meditation. What I mean by that is, you may only experience the high-vibrational energy of those transcendental meditative states while you are in those meditative states. The moment you come out of it and go about your day, that energy does not get to come with you because what Hematite does when it “grounds” you, is to literally remove this excess energy.

The way I see it, it’s like Hematite forces you to live paycheck to paycheck, instead of allowing you to save up anything extra you accumulate.
Imagine these two scenarios – 1) You’re working at a good job, and with every pay period, after you’ve paid all your bills, you have a bit of money left over, which you decide to save. Scenario 2) You’re working at the same job, making and spending the same amount of money, but in this scenario, at the end of every pay period your boss comes and takes away the excess money you didn’t spend. You don’t get to save it. If you didn’t spend it, you have to give it back. This makes it impossible to save anything, which means if you ever miss work, you’re screwed.

This is the same way Hematite operates if you use it to ground your energy on a regular basis. Normally when I meditate, the high frequency energy I experience during the meditation, as well as the afterglow that comes as a result, will continue to stay with me for at least the rest of the day, if not the next several days following.
I think of it like having a heavenly fragrance that radiates from my body, which slowly dissipates over time.
With Hematite however, there is no afterglow like this. As soon as the meditation is over, the high vibes are also over. Any excess energy you have will immediately be “grounded”, which basically means you won’t have the amazing afterglow, and the only time you’ll be able to experience these higher energy states is during the meditation itself.

This made me realize, what if these types of stones aren’t meant to be used on a regular basis like other crystals are? What if “grounding” stones, or any type of crystal that “clears” your energy, is actually meant to be used in the same way that you would do a dietary fast, or detox?
Could you imagine doing a juice-fast every single day for the rest of your life, with a liver detox at the end of every week? NOT fun!
You were never meant to live that way, and that’s not how you’re supposed to take energy in, in the first place.
In the same way that detoxing is normally used as annual/semi-annual maintenance for the body, so also could grounding stones be considered something that you use every so often, and not something you use on a daily basis.
You’ve got to let the tree grow a little before you start pruning the branches.

Any stone that grounds your energy, may actually be impeding your growth. It’s okay to let your energy flourish. Don’t be so worried about getting rid of the negative, and instead learn to transform the darkness into light. Embrace every experience and allow yourself to flow with whatever energy you receive.

I’ve decided that for the time being, I’m putting my “grounding stones” on halt. Hematite is one of these, but Kyanite is also a very powerful stone I use, which is spectacular at clearing all the chakras, as well as the entire aura field.
I understand now that these are probably best used once in a blue moon, or whenever I have something specific in my energy field that needs to be dealt with.
Until then, I prefer to let my energy flow from one meditation to the next. Accumulating energy in this way is not the same as stagnancy. Far from it actually, because as I’m continually bringing in more energy, I’m naturally releasing the overflow. You don’t have to cut yourself off from your excess in order to stay fresh.

In regard to the reason why you would want to put a limit on your excess though, it’s understandable that in some cases, having too much high vibrational energy could cause a few problems.
Imagine being in such a high vibrational state during meditation that you can’t stop laughing. You literally can’t stop, and even after the meditation is “over” you’re in such a good mood that you continually laugh at everything, even when you’re not “supposed” to. This could obviously become a problem if you’re ever in a serious situation.
In that type of scenario , it would be completely understandable that you need to tone down that high frequency quite a bit, so using a grounding stone to release the excess energy would be a great way to go about doing that.
Under normal circumstances however, it’s actually this overflow of high vibe energy which allows you to take your spiritual practice into the mundane. It’s one thing to communicate with your spirit guides during meditation, but it’s completely different when it happens while you’re going about the minutia of life. This is when washing the dishes becomes a meditation in itself.
This is where you learn to become truly “grounded” because you are no longer putting a separation between the “spiritual” and the physical. Everyday life becomes the spiritual experience, because spirituality is no longer something you “shut off” in order to plug back in to physical life.

You experience a whole new level of awakening when you let the overflow of spiritual hyper-awareness, become a blended aspect of your life in the physical realm. This is when “supernatural” healing becomes a part of your mundane routine, and not something that only happens when you’re in the “atmosphere” of spirituality. You are now able to bring spirituality with you, to change the atmosphere around you.

This is what it means to be fully grounded.

Last night was REALLY good!
I was led intuitively to spend the night of the full moon reflecting on memories of my past, and it turned into a very peaceful meditation.
I have about 10 or so crystals right now, so I laid them all out in front of me, and held each of them one at a time, asking them to bring up any memories they want to show me.
As I relaxed into meditation, tons of old memories just started popping up, and it was sort of felt like I was watching a movie of my childhood.
What’s interesting though, is that for several of us, “childhood memories” is a bit of a touchy subject because we have so many shadows, and have experienced so much trauma it’s not something we’d think of as a fun thing to process. It’s usually pushed into the category of “shadow work”, as if it’s something painful we need to heal and get rid of.
Even though I do feel that way sometimes, during this moment all the memories that came up didn’t have that bitter feeling attached to it. Even some of the “bad” memories, can now be seen just like watching a movie, where it’s just an experience that doesn’t hold any attachment of good or bad, and I can actually laugh at some of the things that were really painful while I was going through it.
There were even certain moments throughout this process where I was enjoying the memory so much I wanted to keep watching it forever, but the crystals kept telling me to move on to the next one, haha.
I’ve heard this is something many indigenous culture do during a full moon. They spend this time reflecting on memories they’ve had throughout this cycle, and they turn it into a ceremony of honoring the past, and letting go of what no longer serves them.
This was such an enjoyable process for me that now I’m REALLY eager to do this every time there’s a full moon! It’s really powerful to spend some time just processing your old memories. This doesn’t even have to be done like “shadow work” though. All you literally have to do is think about, and watch your memories, like a movie playing in your mind.
After doing this process I feel like now I have a greater sense of honoring the past, and reflecting on where I’ve been.
It seems like all throughout my life, and especially during the past few years as I’ve been progressing more in spirituality, I’ve become much more deeply focused on progressing, and always moving forward. I spend so much time trying to achieve something, or unlock the new upgrade, or integrate more shadows, that I never stop and appreciate who I am because of where I’m been. Taking a moment to honor the past could be considered in itself an important step in moving forward.
One thing I learned during this process, that actually took me by surprise, is that there actually isn’t a “present moment”.
Haha, this pretty much goes against everything that every spiritual teacher has ever taught, because most people will say there is NOTHING except for the present moment, but what I learned intuitively here is exactly the opposite.
In that case, I’ll go ahead and say this is one of those “contradictory compliments”, similar to the concept that “expansion” and “stillness” are two sides of the same coin.
The reason there is no present moment is because when you think about it, all you have is the past (what you’ve done) and the future (what you’re going to do). We spend every moment of our life doing something because of these two. The “present moment” is a state of void.
It’s where you are now, but it’s always based on where you’ve been, and where you’re going.
So as I was feeling this, I was led intuitively to say:
Thank you for what I’ve done
Thank you for what I’m going to do
Thank you for who I AM.
What you’ve done, and what you’re going to do, pretty much define your unique identity, but coming into the present moment where there is no longer attachment to either, is actually a space of complete void.

It’s always difficult to enjoy a movie when you have an overactive mind, haha

I went to the movies tonight, and I’ve noticed this happens a lot – it feels like I’m watching myself, watch the movie. It seems like I dis-identify from my emotions so much that every time a thought comes to mind, I analyze myself judging the thought.

I don’t know if this means I’m super “conscious” in a good way or a bad way, but after a while I started to get really annoyed and wondered what is it like to be “normal” and not process your thoughts.
Eventually I told my mind to STFU, and then I realized several of the thoughts I’m feeling are actually other people’s emotions that I’m processing FOR THEM! AHHHH the struggle is real when you’re an empath!

Also, something else really caught my attention.
I kept getting a sense that there are entities in the astral realm, which are sort of like energetic mosquitoes, and these entities will FEED off of your energy when you experience a strong emotion. Your emotions are like nourishment that they feast off of, much like a mosquito who wants to drink your blood, so these entities THRIVE in movie theaters where people are experiencing a wide range of emotions.

I thought it was a little funny though, because every time a thought came into my mind that would normally cause an emotional reaction, I was already experiencing being the “observer self” and detaching from the emotion, so it seemed like the mosquito entities weren’t able to feed off of my energy.
Every time a thought would arise, I would instantly detach my consciousness from it, and I kept feeling these entities back off right when they were about to feast on my emotional energy.
Haha, I just thought it was funny because I could feel that they knew they wouldn’t be able to get any of my energy, and they even knew that I was aware of them.

If you’ve been trying to astral travel and need a bit of help getting out of body, you HAVE to get Azurite!
I usually focus on one particular chakra depending on the day of the week, and I also use a particular crystal that resonates with each chakra.
Yesterday I used Azurite, so I went to sleep with it under my pillow, and when I woke up this morning I had the most amazing experience ever!
The moment I woke up, I felt my Azurite stone tell me telepathically to go into meditation, because there is a portal open for me right now.
I took the stone from out of my pillow case, and went into meditation with it resting on my third eye.
For some reason, even though I occasionally see glimpses of higher realities, and other universes during meditation, I haven’t felt drawn very strongly to go there.
I keep telling myself that I’d like to spend more time exploring the higher dimensions, and sort of “map out” the other universes and realities, but doing so has always been this fleeting idea of something that I plan to do, but never actually make time for.
In some ways, I even feel like my energetic vibration isn’t high enough for my consciousness to stay focused in the higher dimensions very long, so usually when I have those experiences they come as flashes of insight that only last for a brief moment.
I even feel like when you’re not a vibrational match to experience something, you simply won’t have the desire to pursue it, so for the past several months even when I intentionally try to astral travel to explore the other universes and higher dimensions, I’ve only been able to go so far because my energetic vibration isn’t high enough to sustain those levels for very long.
Using Azurite to enhance my out of body experiences though, seems to give a MASSIVE boost on my ability to go even further out of body!
As I was traveling, I was led to go to other realities, other universes, and even explore other timeline possibilities within this universe.
While doing so, I saw what looked like spider web, or some sort of energetic trail, leaving a connection between every “realm” I’d been to. During astral travel, you’ll notice an energetic chord, which some call the silver chord, connecting your crown chakra back to your physical body. As I saw this chord forming these energetic connections in the higher realms, I felt like I was also forming physical connections with the neurological pathways in my brain. I even felt like once this connection is made, it’s there forever. You may have a brief glimpse of something in a higher realm, but because of the energetic chord that is formed leading back to everything you’ve experienced, you can always retrace your steps and go back there again whenever you like.
What’s even more profound about all of this, is that once you become aware of any particular realm, that realm can become as real to you as this one, which means you can experiences multiple lifetimes simultaneously! 😂
I’ve actually already experienced this on a few brief occasions, but it only lasted a short moment. I would just get a glimpse of myself in a parallel timeline, and I’d see how my life there is different compared to here.
Now though, I feel like I’m able to go MUCH deeper into this, and it lasts much longer than just a brief second.
Anyways, I just wanted to share this experience with you all and let you know that Azurite is THE stone to use if you’re looking to get more into astral travel. It stimulates the third eye very strongly, and it will take your out of body experiences to a whole new level ^_^

I’m starting to get back into my weight lifting routine, and today while doing sets of squats, my Kundalini energy actually spoke to me, and helped me process the energy that was flowing through my body.
It happened while I was breathing heavy after one of the sets.
In my mind I could see my energy swirling around in my body, and I very distinctly sensed my Kundalini, like a flaming presence of consciousness at the base of my spine.
I was led to focus on the energy swirling through my body, and bring it directly to my legs.
After doing so, I just let it do its work, and it seemed to make me more aware of FEELING my body.
This also helped me realize that Kundalini is more than just one type of energy. It’s ALL of life force energy in everything that exists.
It is conscious presence.
