As the Quantum Soup Begins to Boil
Lisa Gawlas gives a thought-provoking energetic description of current events from her perspective.
The French word for “heart” is coeur. The word “courage” comes from the Old French for heart cuer. It is also derived from the Latin cor or heart. Your heart is the seat of your courage, focus, intention. It is the voice of your personal Akashic Field or soul record. It knows you better than your ego personality’s mind knows itself. It is not a puppy, unicorn, rainbow or sparkles.
Following your heart means you listen to the true voice that you recognize as information outside of the mass consensus. Rarely, if ever, does the voice of your heart tell you something that feels like aligning with another. Isn’t that a strange thought? There is so much talk about “being of like-mind” and “finding your tribe” you would believe the opposite is true. It is not. Following your heart requests you to stop attempting to align, belong or become one of the tribe. It asks you to lead, even if there is no one following you.
The first time I heard/read the French word for heart–I loved it immediately, intuiting its relationship with courage. Like much in the (English) mainstream media, it may be that the idea of the heart has been infantilised as the call for one to be impulsive, whimsical, emotional, romantic, in the moment–and sure, it could be those things, but it can also be the thing that helps you stand calm, steady, and clear against external pressures (including the apparent promise of romantic love!).
Tuning In: Spirit Channelers in America (Video)
Reading and watching channeled material is an off-and-on thing for me. I know people who watch and/or read it obsessively, quoting one or two channelers often. I like sampling :) and this was a great sampling. The director and I seem sympatico–the documentary lifts, from each channeler, my absolute favorite take-home excerpts, some of which have been confirmed with astral experiences and dreams, and it was nice to be reminded again, and to hear some new stuff.
Back to the Future and 9/11 (Video)
When a non-conspiracy acquaintance shares a conspiracy video instead of the other Oct 21, 2015 nostalgic stuff about Back to the Future, I take note. This one is short, somewhat repetitive in its video editing, but a riveting watch. Watch the video but ignore the commentary on the page it’s on–that author was obviously not a regular conspiracy reader either ;) and unfamiliar with the concept of the future already existing, and how Hollywood works within the larger machinery. I struggled with how to share this, because conspiracy sites and the huge overarching theories can scare, and I don’t like the fear and sensationalism that a lot of the material can be presented with. Whenever I feel someone is ready and open for a bit of empowering TMI , I recommend shiftfrequency.com and David Wilcock‘s books.
We don’t have to believe everything we read, but we don’t have to avoid information that goes against the mainstream programming, either. There are two extremes I see: One can believe everything from the news (Nuclear power and fracking are OK, all the products sold in your ubersupermarkets are safe) or one can become pessimistic and suspicious of everything via conspiracy theories (everything is out to get you). It may be that the best we can do is to navigate a personal balance between the two, taking responsibility for our own education and the choices that result. It requires a recognition of our right to information, and how we need to actively use both analysis and intuition on what we learn. And it is a learning journey.
I’m still learning here.
This should be a read for anyone male, as well as anyone paying attention to the “subtle” (hardly) games around social and gender standing in nerd/geekdom. My own interest stems from being an early science-fiction and fantasy fan (and wannabe writer and artist), a female Dungeons & Dragons player, and a physics and astronomy enthusiast. I did not have a lot of like females around me, and my passions in these subjects, which were real, turned me into a misogynist. This took me a long time to unpack. Teenagerhood was even more fraught with angst for me because I thought my male-ish pursuits should have made me more attractive to guys who shared my interests–eh. Two decades later, after struggling with the condescension and misogyny and disappointments and dating both geeks and non-geeks, I can’t say one group was much better or worse than the other. In fact what became crystal clear is that the completist consumer-collector type of geek clashed directly with my deepest values of material dettachment, and consequently my home decor style.
I wish I was joking. ;) But it’s also funny. In the end, objects (and books and films) hold energy like everything else, and I cannot abide collecting for collecting’s sake. I like living nimbly, and I want to be around people who can understand this. Objects can be beloved, but I don’t like when they become crutches for ego and identity…even self-worth. That cannot be bought. :)
