Magic Wands & Consciousness Itself

 

Now, it would perhaps be correct to say… that a lot of people are looking for a magic wand…

… which is why they are attracted to different Manifestation processes… to the Law of Attraction itself…

They have a problem, they want it to go away, they are looking for a viable solution…

They are looking for a process… a mantra… a special crystal… which they can use to change their circumstances for the better.

And there is nothing wrong with that… it is the essence of the human path we walk…

Stretching back to our early ancestors, who thought to themselves… “Meat tastes much better if I cook it over fire… But I can’t always rely on lightning to create fire… How can I create fire whenever I want…?”

But the thing is… even though external stuff can help (and I use external stuff myself, all the time)… the real magic ingredient for all Manifestation, and the main motor for the Law of Attraction process lies within.

It is Consciousness itself.

There is a belief in the Ancient Taoist tradition… Consciousness expands whatever it touches.

Love… Hate… doesn’t matter…

If you place Love into the Ocean of Consciousness… that’s what it will expand…

If you place Hate into the Ocean of Consciousness… that will also be expanded…

Consciousness expands whatever it touches.

Which ties nicely into the Native American story of the 2 Wolves…

A young man goes to the tribal Shaman and says… “I have two wolves inside me… one Love… the other Hate… which one is going to win and dominate my life?” … and the Shaman replies… “The one you feed.”

In this context, feeding means the one you hold steady in the light of your Consciousness…

Which ties in with a statement by a Tibetan Lama… “Don’t try and love the things you hate… you will only feed them, expand them… rather, in any situation… find the embers of something you love, and breath on those… love those.”

Which ties in with traditional couples therapy… “What are 3 things that first attracted you to John… Mary… Ringo… or Samantha… when you first fell in love?”

And this also ties in with the modern approach of Gratitude… each day finding something to be grateful for… and loving that, being grateful for that… thus expanding the energy field of Gratitude… pulling in more and more things to be Grateful for…

So Consciousness IS the magic wand of creation…

The Consciousness which lies within us… which animates us… which flows through us… is what we can use to change things for the better…

… and so to really become the Co-Creator… the master magician we long to be… requires us to master our own Consciousness… which may not be as difficult as it first sounds…

OK, before we can discuss all that in future posts… in this post we need to lay the foundation… we need to understand the context within which it all works…

 

ONE – Hawkins’ Map of Consciousness

I have written a previous article on David R Hawkins’ Levels of Consciousness, and so you can read it via the link below if you are interested… how he uses the different levels to define a Map of Consciousness to help us navigate our inner (and so outer) world.

However, one of his other teachings is that:

  • The field of Universal Awareness creates the field of Consciousness
  • The field of Consciousness creates the field of the Mind
  • The field of the Mind creates the field of the Emotions
  • The field of the Emotions creates the field of the Physical World

His assertion… which is echoed by so many Spiritual Teachers down through the millennia… is that for something to manifest on the physical it has to come down through the different levels…

Awareness > Consciousness > Mind > Emotions > Physical World

But he also says… and this is the BIG INSIGHT…

If you truly want to change a situation… then you need to go up to the level ABOVE… because only the higher level has the power / energy necessary to permanently change a lower level…

So if you want to really change something… literally transform it:

  • On the physical level, you need to access the right emotions to do so
  • On the emotional level, you need to access the right mental beliefs / thoughts to do so
  • On the mental level, you need to access the right level of consciousness to do so

Ditto awareness / consciousness… but truth is… if you can access those fine levels… you have probably moved beyond 99% of all Earth plane issues…

And the reality is… the majority of us spend most of our time down the other end of the vibrational spectrum.

Now… if you look at that simplified Map of Consciousness above… then you can probably deduce several things:

First, you can’t get behind / above Awareness… it is the bedrock of our reality…

Second, most people have some kind of physical problem… but they are trying to solve it on the same level… with a physical doing… some action or event. But as Hawkins states, playing on the same level lacks the extra energy needed to truly change a situation… and so this is what I call “re-arranging the furniture”… the room may look different, but the furniture is still the same… and this is how a lot of people get stuck… they’re not accessing a higher level.

Third, if you look at many Manifestation processes available… they get people to rise up to the emotional or mental levels, to change stuff there, to access the necessary energy and inner momentum to create change down on the physical… and if for people works, I am not going to knock it.

But there is a problem… can you see it?

To truly change something on the Mental level… where do you need to go?

Yep, you need to access the Level of Consciousness above… you need to be able to stand back from your thoughts and beliefs, you need to understand that you are more then your Mind… you need to start to step into your true State of Being.

Note: From my own experience… and some of it hard-won I might add… for some difficult situations, the only true solution is to venture into the realm of Consciousness… healing and change MUST come from that level for it to be solid and real on all the levels below. If you can’t do that… then you are basically wondering around inside your mind… trying to find the off-switch to your suffering.

 

TWO – Playing with Torches

When you are were a small child, did you ever play with hand-held light torches… shining them against a wall… creating shadow creatures with your hands in the beam… casting shadows on the wall?

Well… let’s play a similar mind-game now…

In a darkened room, an electric torch, and some statements and affirmations written on pieces of card.

Affirmation Card 1: I will never amount to much in this life.

Affirmation Card 2: I am someone of worth, I value myself and my abilities.

Now, take both cards… and place them up against the dark wall… about a metre apart… (3 feet for our friends in the US)…

And shine your torch light against Affirmation Card 1… so that it becomes illuminated…

Well, this is the same as the light of Consciousness activating that thought…

“I will never amount to much in this life.”

Expanding it… energizing it… giving it all the life and force it needs to manifest down the levels… and turn up as physical forms in your life.

So what if you don’t want that any more… what if you don’t want to trapped inside that belief anymore?

Well, you got 2 choices…

Option 1: You reach over, and replace Affirmation Card 1 with Card 2… swap them over, so that the torch light is now shining on “I am someone of worth, I value myself and my abilities”

That approach is akin to many of the Emotional / Mental approaches currently on offer.

Option 2: Or… you can simply change the direction of the torch so that it is no longer pointing at Affirmation Card 1, but at Card 2 located a little along the wall, so the light is now directed at:

“I am someone of worth, I value myself and my abilities”

That approach is akin to what happens if you are working at the Consciousness level.

Both approaches WORK… but sometimes one approach is more appropriate then the other… and sometimes (when working the Law of Affirmation stuff) it’s far easier to shift the torch then re-arrange all the Affirmation Cards in your head.

But hey… whatever works for you… and bottom-line… you have to get the light of Consciousness away from all those low vibe thoughts…

Important: Even when something is assigned to our Unconscious Mind… it is still receiving some attention from the field of Consciousness… OK, you might have hid it behind the proverbial sofa, and turned down the light of Consciousness to the lowest setting possible… but it will still be receiving some light… and so it will still be active to some degree… influencing you… undermining you… from the shadows. It is never possible to banish something to total darkness… to forever forgetfulness… which is a mistake many people make…

AND THE NEXT IMPORTANT POINT…

No… wait… we’ll save that for the next ultra-interesting post in this series.

NOTE: Oh… and for those who want to link to an earlier post… the Cards are the personal barcodes… and Consciousness is the barcode reader…

… But for this whole scenario to make sense, you really do need to believe that Consciousness itself exists beyond and outside of the human brain.

More coming soon.

Namaste 🙂
