OCTAVES OF TRUTH
EXPLORING THE GREAT MYSTERIES
EVERYTHING STAYS THE SAME...
DESPITE CAREFUL EFFORTS TO MAINTAIN INDIVIDUAL CREDIBILITY AMONG MAINSTREAM ACADEMIA, THE SCIENTIFIC CONSENSUS IS NO LONGER IN FAVOR OF MATERIALISM NOR OF THE NEWTONIAN PARADIGM. THEIR MOST FUNDAMENTAL ASSUMPTIONS HAVE BEEN PROVEN FALSE. MATERIALISM POSITS THAT MATTER GIVES RISE TO CONSCIOUSNESS AND THAT CONSCIOUSNESS IS LIKELY A MERE FLUKE OF INTERCHANGING CHEMICALS, NOT SERVING ANYTHING WITH A HIGHER PURPOSE. NOTHING SACRED, NOTHING MYSTERIOUS, JUST PURE MATHEMATICAL CHANCE. OUR VERY EXISTENCE, ACCORDING TO THIS NOW ANTIQUATED COSMOLOGICAL MODALITY, IS MERELY A RANDOM AND IRRELEVANT SIDE-EFFECT OF CHEMICAL INTERACTION.
FORTUNATELY FOR ALL OF US, A NEW UNDERSTANDING IS BEING CULTIVATED BEFORE OUR VERY EYES. THE ONCE PARALLEL LINES OF SCIENCE & SPIRIT, REGARDLESS OF HOW ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER FEELS ABOUT IT, ARE BEGINNING TO INTERSECT WITH UNDENIABLE MOMENTUM AND UNAVOIDABLE CONSEQUENCE. SUCH COLD ASSUMPTIONS OF OUR VERY NATURE BEING A MERE FLUKE, ARE OVERSHADOWED BY THE CASCADE OF SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERIES MADE SINCE.
CONCEPTS LIKE STRING THEORY, QUANTUM MECHANICS, BIOPHYSICS, AND ELECTRIC UNIVERSE THEORY RECONCILE UNDERSTANDINGS OF BOTH MATTER AND SPIRIT IN WAYS RARELY RECOGNIZED, AS THE INDIVIDUAL MIND REQUIRED TO DRAW SUCH PARALLELS MUST BE WELL-VERSED IN BOTH THE MATERIAL & SPIRITUAL SCIENCES, A TRUE RARITY INDEED, IN ORDER TO EXTRAPOLATE MUCH OF ANYTHING WORTHWHILE FROM THE MOUNTAINS OF EVIDENCE ALL AROUND US. THE MULTITUDE OF PARADOXES AND OTHER THEORETICAL DEAD-ENDS RESULTING FROM THE LIMITATIONS INHERENT IN SUCH ANTIQUATED PARADIGMS, ARE NOW EASILY RECONCILED BY THE RE-AWAKENING OF PERENNIAL WISDOM, A UNIVERSAL UNDERSTANDING ONCE KNOWN INTUITIVELY BY ALL CULTURES ACROSS THE GLOBE, WHICH WAS LIKELY THE RESULT OF EITHER A GLOBALLY SHARED PARENT CULTURE, OR INTENTIONAL SEEDING AND GERMINATION OF GNOSIS, BY HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS fIN OUR ANCIENT PAST.
IN SHORT, NEWTON'S ONCE USEFUL WORLDVIEW IS TODAY MERELY AN ANTIQUATED HINDERANCE TO TRUE UNDERSTANDING. LIKE GEOCENTRISM, THESE ONCE USEFUL PARADIGMS OF SUCH A MATERIALISTIC & POLARIZED WORLDVIEW, ARE TODAY, SURPASSED BY A NEW (ACTUALLY REEMERGENT) UNDERSTANDING OF THE GREAT MYSTERY WE FIND OURSELVES IMMERSED IN.
THIS REEMERGENCE OF THE SPIRITUAL SCIENCE SATISFIES MANY OF THE PARADOXES & DEAD ENDS ENCOUNTERED BY MAINSTREAM ACADEMIC SCIENCE (ACROSS NUMEROUS DISCIPLINES). WHILE IT IS BOTH MORE LOGICAL AND MORE COMPATIBLE WITH NOTIONS OF A CREATED UNIVERSE, ITS INTANGIBILITY REKINDLES THE SPARK THAT IS OUR RESPECT FOR THE GREAT MYSTERY OF BEING.
ANATOMY OF THE
HUMAN ENERGY MATRIX
HOW MANKIND SERVES AS THE ASCENSION MECHANISM,
BRIDGING MATTER & SPIRIT
Both the brain and the heart emit electromagnetic fields generated by the firing of neurons. Different neural signals generate different wave patterns, which carry different types of electromagnetic information. This generates a field of EM information reaching about 4-6 feet in diameter around the human body. Biologically oriented electromagnetic fields were first proven to exist in living organisms, including humans by Fritz Alpert Pop and his discovery of the biophoton. Modern physics posits that any object which contains electrical charge, must therefor contain an electromagnetic field. For humans, its simple, this is the aura spoken of thousands of years ago, at least I believe it to be. Modern science is merely validating what was already known to the ancient ancestors across various global cultures, spanning continents and thousands of years, perhaps more.
This field is generated by various parts of the human being including by neurons in the heart, the brain, and even certain brain regions. The cycles per second exhibited by the oscillation of the frequency, or how many times that frequency peaks & troughs within a certain period of time (this is what is meant by density in spiritual circles), correlates to specific forms of information and specific measurable states of being. The measurement of brainwaves consists of five primary classifications or ranges, determined by the number of cycles per second that the field exhibits (the wavelength, measured in Hertz/hz), including Beta (high awareness, fight or flight, engaged cognition, survival state), Alpha (the flow state, relaxed focus as when captured by a good movie, wu-wei (doing not doing)) Theta (hypnagogia, trance, mind awake-body asleep) Delta (deep sleep, repair, restoration, cellular/genetic repair, processing) and Gamma, of which little is known but is said to be associated with transcendental states of expanded awareness. As shown, each of these ranges correlates to a specific emotional and physical state of being. In the average person here in today's west, due to a variety of factors, each part of the brain, each hemisphere, as well as the heart (which has been shown to signal up to 40x more information to the brain than the brain signals to the heart) each operates in an independent and isolated state, therefor, each emitting an isolated field, creating a scattered and incoherent biofield, as can be measured via EEG. This leads to depression, physical deterioration, anxiety, fear states, inability to process new information or learn, and lacking desire for social connection, especially because we are naturally in high-beta when this occurs.
To better illustrate the consequences of this energetic incoherence, imagine a team of five employees assigned to a project. Each team member represents a different part of the bodily system that emits an electromagnetic field. In a state of incoherence, each team member is working towards completing the project but doing so thinking that they are the only one on the job. During the few times when these systems do manage to communicate (even a broken clock is right twice a day) two of the team members for example, might find that they each completed the same task, or that one team member did something counterproductive to the agendas of the others. Some team members don't even recognize that they are being paid or that they are a part of a team at all. In this example, at best, each has a different priority and doesn't communicate with the others to accomplish the task at hand. Because the project requires five people, they would be lucky if even one of them ever achieved the shared goal. In fact if one member does happen to achieve the goal, the others wouldn't know because they are totally out of sync.
In a state of energetic coherence however, where all parts of the system are communicating in sync and marching to the beat of the same drum, sharing energy and information to contribute to the greater system as a whole (ideally in low beta or mid range alpha) each team member sits down every morning and every evening for a team meeting, to sync up and share information, evenly dividing tasks to more efficiently work towards the same end by knowing what the others are doing. Much more effective right?
For anxious, addicted, and depressed people, incoherence is the default state. Some of us don't even know that anything but this state of survival exists. They walk around feeling like prisoners in their own bodies, faking smiles and a pleasant attitude. However, this state of incoherence is only the result of living in incoherence and/or sustained high beta, which means living in sustained fight or flight, a state of stress. Beta brain waves correlate to being aware, alert, survival, hypervigilance, taking immediate action to avoid immediate threat. It is not suited for sustained application, which is both caused by and further contributes to tendencies for immediate gratification and avoidance behavior. Fight or flight is meant to mitigate acute threats and for finding means of escaping, fighting, or otherwise neutralizing threats in short bursts, not day after day, year after year.
The field emitted in high beta tells the body to channel resources away from anything that doesn't contribute to immediate survival, fight or flight. The beta signal indicates to the body that now isn’t the time for human connection, rest, activation of cellular or genetic repair, digestion, emotional processing, or learning. The body believes that it is a time to run away, to fight, or to hide. Blood carrying oxygen and other resources are taken away from the frontal lobe, which is the executive center of the brain, responsible for reason, logic, planning, and prioritization, before they are channeled towards the amygdala or "reptilian" mind, responsible for fight or flight and animal instinct, as well as to the limbs, which allows us to run or fight more effectively. With this understanding, the rise in anxiety, ADHD, & tribalization in our modern age might make more sense. It is a terrible feedback loop where a desire for escape and relief, while temporarily effective, only leads to a greater desire for escape and relief.
The scattered nature of the modern human's electromagnetic signature is the primary reason for so many of us (likely the majority of people under 30), not having the ability to do the things they know they should, over and over, despite telling themselves (and meaning it) that they will. This is because each state is like a different version of you, reflecting specific aspects of your nature in greater magnitude. In brainwave dominant state, you are experiencing the pain of failing to meet the expectations you had for yourself yesterday while in Alpha, yet the version of you who fails to meet this expectation is actually another aspect of the self, expressed in another state,
Incoherence resulting from high beta is shown to negatively impact one’s ability to set and meet goals, connect to others in a deep or meaningful way, learn, form new memories, integrate experiences, or recall any experience that occured in another state. So even if you don’t think you are living in a survival state consciously, the body and the unconscious mind (also known as the body-mind), in sustained high Beta, will operate as if being stalked by a predator or running out of food before winter. The result is constant exhaustion, tension, and anxiety. Over time, it only gets worse and can even lead to physical disease.
This, in our view, is by far the number one cause of the massive spike in suicide, stress, depression, anxiety, and possibly, the rise in cancer, as gene expression becomes corrupted after sustained periods in Beta, due to the fact that resources are never provided to repair mitochondria. Furthermore, gene expression is impacted by emotional states (as shown by epigenetics). The science of epigenetics shows that stress prevents the activation of the the parasympathetic nervous system, leading to genetic corruption resulting from an inability to restore and repair bodily systems. Rather than being set in stone, genes are activated via biological "switches." The key to these switches lies in our internal perception of our external environment. When the body electromagnetically tells itself not to channel resources towards genetic or cellular repair, Cancer results, as well as a sort of psychosomatic cancer, which results in rumination and thought loops that do not serve us in any way. We are stuck inside emotional undercurrents, which we dig ourselves into deeper each time we activate it's neural circuitry.
In essence, we have evolved for a world that no longer exists. In the natural world, there are very few sustained threats that require these long term, survival-based states of being. You can see how living this way for weeks, months, or years on end can lead to disease and disorder in both mind and body. Even if you consciously don't feel the urge to run or fight, the body (or the body-mind/the unconscious) does. It is expressed as avoidance behavior, pleasure seeking, addiction, compulsion, and isolation. This is why so many people just can’t seem to get out of their own way, as the state reinforces the expression of compatible emotion, which informs behavior, and in turn, reinforces the state. This is literally a downward spiral, a feedback loop of mental, physical, and emotional deterioration.
You can influence these states by introducing specific frequencies in resonance with the desired state. While there are numerous ways of doing so, including body-mind practices such as yoga, playing an instrument, reflexology, acupressure, and many others, sound is my preferred tool for influencing our frequency. By playing two slightly different tones in each ear (isochronic tones), wherein the difference between them matches the desired brainwave state, a sort audible illusion is created, one which works to our advantage. Instead of hearing a mix of the tones, or their sum, the brain (for unknown reasons) creates and hears the difference between them as an illusion, and for the illusion to be perceptible, the left and right hemispheres are required to act in coherent unison, something very rare in the modern westerner naturally. So if you wanted to drop from the stress of high beta into the flow state (alpha) or a deep meditative state (theta), there are a number of ways to do that, however it is much more effective for people who don’t have the ability to emotionally regulate with intention, or people who just don’t know anything other than high beta, to take advantage of isochronic tones and binaural beats, and the positive effect they can have, which is known as FFR or "Frequency Following Response."
Another concept to consider is that of entrainment. Entrainment is the natural tendency for seemingly isolated systems to coherently organize with the rhythm of the other. In biology, the same is true. When you understand this principal, you will begin to see it in your everyday life. You'll even see it expressed in social interactions. To illustrate entrainment, see the following video illustrating two metronomes, which theoretically should never change in duration between oscillations, align in rythm with one another over time.
A rave is a perfect example of entrainment occuring at the biological & social levels, as each individual moves and dances to an external beat until all individuals are coherently organized through dance. Because of this incredible feature, we can actually modify internal states by exposing the senses to the according sound, light pattern, vibration, or beat. Another example is when a friend or spouse says something to hurt you out of spite. This is an effort to literally entrain your emotional energy to their current state. This is why we desire shared experience in general.
Essentially mind/body practices promotes alpha states. These practices yield the results that we hope they will when we approach them from within the state compatible with the outcome we desire. Basically nothing can get past the analytical incoherence of high beta. Being stuck in high beta and trying to do anything from within the confines of that state will not lead you anywhere outside of the state. You must be willing to accept that you feel one way, while acknowledging intellectually that a greater state has been experienced in the past, and will be again. You just have to be willing to break the feedback loop, by disregarding the cries of the unbridled body-mind. There are a variety of nuances to this practice that I have identified and overcome in my own personal practice, which I share with clients during sessions.
THE LUMINOUS MIND
BRINGING THE DARKNESS INTO LIGHT
Theta is the ideal state for reprogramming limiting beliefs and exploring consciousness due to the fact that it signals to the frontal lobe that it is safe for the body to power down and recharge, that it is safe to utilize resources that otherwise could be used to fight an active threat, for restorative processes such as digestion & cellular repair. This portion of the brain is correlated with analytical thought, reason, organization, and planning. For example, an affirmation such as "I am a wealthy creator of my own reality," for a person raised in poverty and living in high beta is nothing more than words you won't believe, a waste of mental energy, as these words would naturally have little effect when affirmed from within the Beta state. This is because the analytical mind rejects the statement, as it knows that the past has not shown the affirmation to be true or even likely or possible. Having been rejected by the conscious analytical mind, the affirmation or suggestion never reaches the unconscious, where it can be integrated with the body as a new truth. It might be taken in by the mind intellectually, but this has no effect on one's state of being. In Theta however, the frontal lobe begins to shut down in preparation for sleep, we can slip suggestions past the gatekeeper of analytical thought, and interact with the unconscious directly via visualization, breathwork, affirmations, and basically any mind-body or spiritual practice. The unconscious is not interested in past experience, and takes suggestions or visualizations as currently taking place, or actually being true. In theta, you can quite literally reshape the very nature of who you are with intentional focus. What a miracle if you ask me.
This knowledge is only new in appearance. It is merely reawakening, or perhaps we are re-awakening to it. This is powerful information that every modern human should be aware of, particularly those of us here in the west. We are seeing ADD, anxiety and depression rise on an eerily similar trajectory to the rise of technology. I am a computer science professional (or I was) and don’t see technology as inherently bad or damaging, but like any tool, it can lead to problems depending on it's application. The application of technology, particularly since the rise of TV marketing after World War II, compounded exponentially by the internet, creates the perfect conditions for distraction and pulling our attention a million different directions, especially when combined with modern capitalism. I believe it to be the primary cause of our societal mental breakdown. We need to be aware of the tools available to us to keep us in balance as our attention is being pulled every which way by entertainment, novelty, and marketing (hehe sorry about that). In themselves these are not problematic, but because we have exchanged social connection for perpetual novelty and comfort, we no longer recognize the importance of giving ourselves the time and space to process new information. We are never bored, which isn't inconsequential.
KNOWN AS THE RAINBOW BODY TO THE MONKS OF TIBET,
THE CLOAK OF LIGHT TO THE GNOSTIC MYSTICS,
THE BIOFIELD TO THE CHURCH OF MODERN SCIENCE.
Modern science refers to the aura as the "Bio-Field", but this is the same thing as what the more spiritual minded ancients claimed it to be, despite the refusal of mainstream academia to acknowledge it. Put simply, the bio-field is an energetic (electromagnetic) expression of the information that comprises, influences, and connects each of us. The aura for all intents and purposes is bo the invincible, immortal, and divinely connected wholeness that we each fully embody while simultaneously containing all of the mechanisms that keep us from recognizing the already awakened and fully whole part (who you identify as in the physical). Put short, the aura contains everything we are.
The biofield, rather than being a single energetic layer, is more like a matrix or hierarchical system of interwoven tapestries of energetic layers, each being more subtle than that before it. It consists of electromagnetic fields generated by the nervous system, the heart and the brain (and likely much more than we will ever recognize). These energetic fields contain and act as more subtle organs, many of which act on our emotions, and just as many acting as the energetic catalyst to all chemical responses which changes based on mood, belief, and environment. I go out on a limb as to say that the biofield is synonymous with not only the aura, but the unconscious mind as well. I believe it where we store information and emotions that for whatever reason, the unconscious sees as threatening to the conscious mind. Until the body is ready and willing to process and integrate this emotional information, it will sit in the auric field, bogging down the flow of Qi and literally taking mental and physical energetic resources away from the conscious mind, equivalent to the amount of mental energy required to keep them from being felt or processed (repressed).
We are all wearing our wounds on our chests, and even if we don’t consciously recognize it, we do sense the information carried by the aura of others unconsciously. It is the reason for someone just giving you the creeps but you don’t know why. In a meditative state (theta) I and many who use my modality or regularly practice meditation with a similar intention, have reported sensations that I understand as tuning into the energy body by getting sensory input out of the way. These energies are always there for you to tune into, just as your spirit is. We don’t see or feel it simply because of the density (higher frequency, or more cycles per second) of physicality gets in the way of these more subtle but more fundamental layers of reality and ourselves. Its like placing a brick in front of your eyes and thinking that the brick is all there is to reality, when in actuality, the brick is only one infinitesimally small portion of the greater world beyond it.
I have experienced all sorts of strange things going on energetically in theta, and I don't consider myself to be a psychic, rather I know that we all are. I have experienced the sensation of being propelled into a virtual world that responded to my thoughts, like a lucid dream. I was meditating in my bed one minute, and the next I was being sucked out of my body via the soles of the feet as if by an industrial fan at the foot of my bed and propelled into a similar but not identical virtual representation of my bedroom. This is but one of countless experiences I have had doing this work. I have felt the 1000 pedal lotus activate and flow, cycling my auric energy throughout the body and creating a sort of torus field at the crown and soles of the feet. I was this field, which was about 5 feet around my physical body. It is really hard to describe a lot of what I teach which is the hardest part of being in this business. The proof is in the pudding so the old adage goes. Getting people to try just a tiny bit of this pudding is the most challenging aspect of what I do. This work is much harder to describe than it is to experience.
As I have (hopefully) shown, thoughts matter. They have a very real impact on the human body, humanity as a whole, and the terrafirma upon which we create our realities. So the thoughts one has while engaged in this practice are important even more so, as they are being accepted as truth by the unconscious mind and the body. So going forward, it's not that you should think with caution, rather, you should simply be the expression of your highest self, with unconditional love. With practice, you will find it much easier to dismiss thoughts and emotions founded in bias or those that simply do not serve you. This is the true power of the work.
