The Difference Between Resonating With Something And False Resonance

Bernhard GuentherGuest Writer

Many people (myself included) talk sometimes about “resonating” with something or not when determining the “truth” of a particular writing, teaching or information. It’s that non-verbal intuitive “knowing”. However, there can also be “false resonating” (positively or negatively) when it is mistaken for wishful thinking or based on (unconscious) projections or triggers. Sometimes, the false part within us based on conditioning, programming, and wounding resonates with something which we mistake for our true self, resulting in false resonance, or we reject the truth of something because it challenges deep ingrained belief systems we are identified with and hence “don’t resonate with it” because it brings up uncomfortable feelings… which also ties into cognitive dissonance.

While there is validity to the idea of “resonating” with a certain teaching or source, it can easily be misapplied if the “reading instrument”, the Self, is not “tuned” correctly. For example “feel good” messages are not necessarily proof of truth and can also be very emotional manipulative (especially when ego feeds off of it)… just like information that brings up fear is not necessarily false either nor is it “fear mongering”.

In order to find the true resonance one needs to separate the false self (with its assumptions, conditioning, expectations, wishful thinking, wounding, buffers, bias, emotional hooks and ego desires) from the true self connected to the Divine, that small non-verbal voice inside that can always separate a lie from truth, using intuition and critical thinking alike, even if the truth is not very “pleasant” and challenging to one’s world view and especially to one’s self-image.

In other words, honest sincere self-work is needed in order to detect the lies we tell ourselves and all the rationalizations and denial that come with it so we can get more and more in tune with our soul resonance/knowing. From an esoteric perspective, lies to the self are the most harmful and hardest to detect, way harder than detecting the lies “out there” via an intellectual thought process. Essentially, one’s level of Being (soul embodiment) also determines how much (higher) Knowledge one can access via direct experience (Gnosis) that goes ways beyond a mental approach of “thinking” or just intellectually dissecting/processing information.

False resonance” is the reason why many well-meaning people spread disinformation and corrupted/pop-spiritual (New Age) teachings. I don’t take myself out of the equation for I have done that as well, especially in my New Age days when I was not very discerning but mistook my own wishful thinking and emotional projections for “resonating”. But “critical thinking” (while it is very much needed and has its place) is not enough. If there is no emotional Intelligence and embodiment (soul integration) combined with shadow work to raise one’s level of Being, one will get stuck on an intellectual level and can appear very “smart” without progressing any further… esoterically speaking, from the perspective of soul evolution.

False resonance is also what COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Programs) targets and forms the basics of Matrix Mind Control. Good disinformation is most often lies mixed with truth. Enough truth to use as a bait to get the seeker’s attention/resonance or hook his/her ego and then put him/her on a false lead, because she/she swallow the lie as well, keeping him/her asleep while he/she believes to awaken.

Finding “True Resonance”

Finding “true resonance” is related to the triad of Knowledge – Being – Understanding:

“Knowledge is one thing, understanding is another thing. People often confuse these concepts and do not clearly grasp what is the difference between them. Knowledge by itself does not give understanding. Nor is understanding increased by an increase of knowledge alone. Understanding depends upon the relation of knowledge to being. Understanding is the resultant of knowledge and being. And knowledge and being must not diverge too far, otherwise understanding will prove to be far removed from either.

At the same time the relation of knowledge to being does not change with a mere growth of knowledge. It changes only when being grows simultaneously with knowledge. In other words, understanding grows only with the growth of being. In ordinary thinking, people do not distinguish understanding from knowledge. They think that greater understanding depends on greater knowledge. Therefore they accumulate knowledge, or that which they call knowledge, but they do not know how to accumulate understanding and do not bother about it.” – G.I. Gurdjieff, In Search of the Miraculous

It also relates to the fallacy or “misapplication” of the idea that “truth must be simple”:

“It is generally accepted that nobody can go on to secondary school without having completed an elementary education. Exactly the same is true in the esoteric Tradition.

However, in our modern world, we encounter a curious phenomenon. For example: we would not seek to discuss Newton’s binomial theorem without having studied algebra, for without this, every opinion we expressed on the subject would be worthless.

Yet, in the esoteric field, we find a host of “experts” who declare their opinions on esotericism without having ever learned even the rudiments of this knowledge.

At the same time, some of them demand “simplicity” from esoteric teachings on the generally accepted principle that Truth itself must be simple. They conclude from this that access to Truth ought to likewise be simple. Then they assert that the methods to access Truth must be easily assimilable.

This argument would be perfectly correct if human beings and the problems they face were simple and just. However, that is not the case. There is a long road to travel from our state of distorted inner disorder to any “original simplicity.”

In practice, the doctrine of “simplicity” – if regarded as an axiom – turns the student aside from the strait gate and the narrow way that leads to Life. Impelled by this counter-truth, he believes he stands before this door, when he is in reality – although undoubtedly in perfectly good faith – walking the wide path that leads to perdition, ad majorem Diaboli gloriam, of course.

The Doctrine of Simplicity, correct in itself, but wrongly interpreted, becomes a snare for hearts and minds that are already too corrupt; a danger which should be recognized and avoided.

Some people complain that the subject of the fundamentals of esotericism is not simple. Others have said that it leads to great clarity. This apparent contradiction is explained by the fact that esotericism is addressed to readers who are predisposed to esoteric culture by their nature, formation or personal experience.

It is difficult, if not impossible, for an esoterically uninvolved person to discern false prophets spontaneously. He will recognize them more easily by their “fruits,” by the observable results of their works, which serve as signs.” – Boris Mouravieff, Gnosis

How To Discern Between True And False Synchronicities

How To Discern Between True And False Synchronicities

Paul LendaGuest Writer

A synchronicity is something that has gained lots of attention ever since Carl Jung coined the term to refer to meaningful coincidences. Two seemingly-unrelated situations have somehow entangled to have a greater meaning or message. Michael Talbot, in his book The Holographic Universe, found evidence of the dynamics of synchronicities having something to do with the nature of this universe being a hologram. Synchronicities occur more often the more you have experience an expansion of your awareness. Synchronicities can be exciting, yet some of them can also lead you astray. Not all synchronicities are ones that are authentic.

Types of Synchronicities

Let’s go over the main types of synchronicities.

  • Prophetic Synchronicities – These occur before something big happens in your life and when you are at a point where whatever decision you make will affect you for a long time to come, for better or for worse.
  • Wildcard Synchronicities – These happen when you do something that is completely different from your everyday routine, resulting in your future becoming more indeterminable.
  • Insight Synchronicities – These will occur as symbolic metaphors when you experience something that profoundly shifts your consciousness, where you gain deeper insights about yourself or the nature of reality.
  • Sign Synchronicities – These also occur as symbols, such as a repeating number, animal, or word that holds a message similar to how symbols in dreams offer helpful messages. Positive signs indicate you are on a good path, whereas ominous ones show you are heading down a dangerous path.
  • Artificial Synchronicities – These are artificially-orchestrated synchronicities that are designed to trick you into believing they are authentic guiding signs, yet are actually traps to get you to agree to take some action that will negatively affect you. It is external manipulation by unseen forces.
How Do You Tell the Difference?

The next time you experience a synchronicity, you can ask yourself a few questions.

  • Is there something you did outside of your usual routine that may have made it occur?
  • Were you focusing on something related to the synchronicity earlier?
  • Is the synchronicity looking like it is guiding you to do something that could harm you?
  • Do you feel your energy expand and relax or contract and get uneasy?
  • Are you making life decisions that are altering your life away from the mundane and repetitious every task you normally have your mind occupied on?

A synchronicity is usually your higher Self sending you a message in a way you can receive it more easily when you are pre-occupied with the 3D reality. When you become really in tune with your inner being, you end up not even needing synchronicities at all, because you have a direct communication channel opened up between your physical mind-body avatar and your non-physical soul. However, most of us have to go to work, take care of children or loved ones, or be involved in a variety of 3D-level things that take us out of that state where we can be in constant direct communication with the higher Self.

You should be wary of believing everything you think. This is because the mind has an easy time creating its own illusions, linking thoughts together that share no connection. Not every apparent synchronicity has some sort of high significance or is a divine revelation. That’s not to say that they are not true synchronicities, they simply are more mundane. Perhaps it’s a synchronicity to remind you that you need to take time to be present and breathe deeply. Be mindful of the self-delusion that we have a habit of creating sometimes. Everything has meaning, but not everything is as grandiose as the ego likes to make it seem.

There are no coincidences in a non-linear and holographic reality. Creative intention can lead to active synchronicity. The next time you experience a synchronicity, before you blindly accept it as true, put it through a quick discernment test to make sure. When you filter out all the false synchronicities, you will find that your personal evolution will get on an accelerated path, avoiding wasting time on decisions that will just postpone your growth.

How Fear Will Justify Anything

How Fear Will Justify Anything
Photo Credit: Pexels

Paul LendaGuest Writer

On the world stage, we see fears playing out constantly. The violence we see is motivated by fear. The oppression we see being done by individuals and institutions are motivated by fear. Fear will literally justify anything.

Given recent events around the world that you are probably well aware of, fear is being used as a tool to further goals and agendas that will hurt many (and already are). This, in turn, generates fear and anger in others, which adds more fuel to the fire. Even on a smaller-scale, people find things to be afraid of and become oppressors of others. It can happen on the level of a parent towards a child or a nation towards its inhabitants.

Fear is an incredibly powerful motivator to do something foolish. Think back in time to all of the moments in history when people were acting regressively against one another, justifying their actions because of some fear-based belief. Jiddu Krishnamurti once said that, “the constant assertion of belief is an indication of fear.” When someone feels the need to constantly defend their beliefs, along with what actions they take because of those beliefs, they are in a fear-based mindset.

You Have a Choice

As Nelson Mandela said, “May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears.” If you feel fear within you, there is something you can do about it. It’s important to become aware of when fear wraps its tentacles around us, before it makes us justify doing something that violates the well-being of someone or something else. Transform fear through emotional alchemy.

We are collectively making a choice whether we will live in a fear-based or love-based world. At the end of the day, remember that fear disempowers and reflects disconnection whereas love empowers and reflects connection.

If there was ever a time for embodying love rather than being ruled by fear, it’s right now. Are you strong enough to love in the face of adversity?

The true mark of a conscious and evolved person is them being able to stay within the consciousness of love when there is fear all around them. Love is only possible when you are without fear. The two cannot exist harmoniously within you. As long as you are afraid of someone or something, you will be incapable of loving. You will be able to justify the most violating thoughts, words, and actions against other people and aspects of the interconnected The whole we are all a part of.

There is always a better way to address an issue than succumbing to a fear-based mentality or belief. Fear makes the mind restless, thinking it will find peace and ease once it addresses what it perceives as being a problem. However, there will be no peace, as long as fear is held within you. Fear will find something new to focus its divisive and destructive force towards…it will never end.

One of the most renowned philosophers of the French Renaissance, Michel de Montaigne, once said that, “A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.” You see, suffering will not only be endured by whatever is on the tail end of a fear-based action, but it will result in a self-inflicted wound as well.

Fear is being used today to justify horrifying and devastating things. It doesn’t have to be this way. Yes, it takes courage, strength, and love to transcend the fear mind virus, but it can be done. The rewards of going through the inner emotional alchemical process will benefit us on an individual and collective level, as well as the environment we call home.

6 Shifts In Consciousness We Are All Experiencing Right Now

Published

on

Michael ForresterGuest Writer

Absolutely everything is a wave of energy and there are many new energies taking place on Earth. We’ve shifted consciousness, but we’re still using old reflections to create our reality. Abundance in all aspects of life is now much easier to achieve in the new vibration and a confidence in our abilities will soon magnify to great levels in the coming years. There will be some obstacles and challenges ahead, but know that the following shifts in our being are happening right now as all humans are born into spiritual wealth without practice.

Vibrating frequencies build a virtual construct that makes you think you are in a physical world, but you are not. You are living in a holographic universe which is an illusion – so well designed, that only the highest beings of light can see it for what it is. This is your destiny, but now you will continue to play this game called Earth at a level never played before. You are still playing with three dimensional rules in a fifth dimensional world, but you’re quickly learning how to make the transition by shifting energy.

Think about all the areas of wellness, whether they be physical, mental, social, lifestyle, morals, the spiritual aspects of life (e.g. new age, Western religion, Eastern spirituality)…  they are all enveloped and affected by energy. How you think, feel and act is all energetic. Right or wrong, black and white, good and bad don’t really exist, but we still need the perception of duality to continue the energetic game in its current form. We are discovering that everything is actually a shade of grey.

The most important thing you can do right now is listening to what is whispering to your heart. It won’t shout to get your attention so you must listen very closely to the messages you are receiving.

Shifts in Consciousness Right Now
1. The Realization of the Eternal Nature of Your Being

You are immortal in a physical vessel which you decide is mortal. Your physical vessel does not need to die, but you have come to accept that it will, so it does. There is a balance of well-being that is certain for all of us. You all have a shared pain and part of the process of integration is the understanding of why it exists. Illness is not always a sign that there is something wrong. To acclimate to new energy, many of you have chosen to push through these physical barriers first. You have been conditioned that you must all naturally contract diseases and take drugs to fix them. This is not so.

You WILL know the eternal nature of your being and you will enjoy putting down your burdens and stop struggling to defend and guard against things you feel have gone wrong and must be made right. This is where most of your pain resides. You will learn to love knowing that you don’t have to fix your planet or anybody else and that everything is just as it should be. You will come to know that your governments are exactly where they should be as are all your diverse beliefs and desires.

Things do not have to change for you to be who and what you came here to be. It is then and only then that all the “fixing” required by your egos will actually occur, but you will also know that in reality, nothing ever needed to be fixed. You will let go of any resistance and hold yourself in steady alignment. Will it not be a magnificent moment when humanity can just be without having to be something else? This is where you are headed because you are divine beings of light and you have become masters at this game you call Earth. You no longer need to allow fear and resistance to subject your life to pain. You are moving away from this and transitioning more to love.

2. Shift in Vital and Spiritual Energy

Vital energy makes up about 70% of total subtle energy and sustains the physical body, mind, intellect and ego. It is distributed through subtle channels which connect at special points of intensity most popularly known as chakras. This constructs the physical (voluntary and involuntary actions) and the subtle body (conscious/subconscious mind, intellect and ego). It is prevalent throughout the body and supplies energy to the cells, nerves, arteries, lymph etc. Some concepts relating to the subtle body are partially understood by scientists, but the level of understanding has always been rudimentary. That is now changing.

Spiritual or Kundalini energy lies dormant in a person until activated. These concepts cannot be measured with current technology. Those who have practiced meditation and spiritual principles at the qualitative and quantitative level have assisted in the continual grace of principles that leads these Kundalini forces on the right path. However, the shift in global frequencies and fifth dimensional concepts is allowing all of humanity to earn spiritual wealth simultaneously and without the efforts that were once necessary. In the past, people had to work hard to amass spiritual wealth. Now, it will be as if all humans are born into spiritual wealth without practice. You have received a magnificent upgrade that is allowing this energy to be activated by simply embracing the being that you are. It is leading to spiritual growth at an accelerated rate.

3. Energetic Harmony

Imagine creating a unified harmony through 800 trillion cells and vibrating them into health and wellbeing. Humming itself produces overtones which can heal your mind, body and spirit. You will begin loving your voice and humming or singing from day to day to assist in accelerating your spiritual growth. It will come natural to you. You will begin feeling mystic silent overtones vibrating through your cells and body. This will also awaken your deepest desires to be unified with overtones of love and help breakdown stiffness and pain and facilitate your spirit body to flow.

As you begin to break down the veil, you will realize you have a shared pain on this planet and it is not your own. It is connected to everyone and everything. There is beauty in that shared pain and you will learn to see it for what it is through energetic harmony. You will move past specific body pain you thought was your own when it was actually part of the collective. Once embraced, this pain will cease to exist. You will let this pain go because you will understand its origin. Many of you will heal from pain and disease in ways you will think are miracles, but it will be simply the miracle of who you are and nothing more.

4. Energetic Causation

What scientific studies have failed to address on our  planet is causation. They have tried through many different methods to obtain conclusive results in their scientific research through a countless number of double blind, placebo controlled and random studies which are considered the highest standards for scientific experiment. We can tell you that there has never been one published scientific study based on this standard that has identified causation beyond sub-atomic levels. Yet it is precisely those levels that cause everything to manifest in the physical body as it does.

Contrary to what they tell you… you are not a limited material being” ~ Amit Goswami PhD, Theorhetical Quantum Physicist

Scientific studies can only derive correlations because they do not address energetic causation which is the underlying mechanism behind every single experience and event whether physical or non-physical. 100% of your diseases are based on energetic components within your field. There is NO other cause of disease. Diseases are primarily third dimensional experiences and will cease to exist when you learn to remain at higher vibration  –  and you will.

This will be a big one for scientists as many will learn in the coming decade to factor energetic principles as causation before initiating any study. You will all begin to have a better understanding of the effect of energetic resonance and the effects on all physical things. This will revolutionize science and remove many obstacles that have hindered scientific inquiry from progressing on the planet. The physics and the metaphysics will soon combine.

5. Energetic Transfer and Reflection

You can only attract what is within your vibrational field. There are no experiences that you can obtain in physical form without attracting them from a vibrational perspective. That includes the most horrific experiences and the most beautiful ones.

What you will learn to do is accept relationships and experiences for what they are. People and experiences serve as a reflection to teach you something about yourself. If somebody says something that offends you, it is because your vibrational field contained an element that needed to be addressed. You will see these people differently. You will thank them for being that reflection and the transfer of energy that was necessary for you to recognize your own vibration. You will honour these people for coming into your life and teaching you what would otherwise be quite difficult to learn without their assistance.

You will come to enjoy the effect that all people have on you, even those you now consider to be obnoxious, rude, insensitive, careless, ignorant, etc. These are qualities you have always judged in yourself and the reflection is only there because you attract it. So start thanking your overbearing boss, nosy neighbour or rude co-worker for what they bring to your energy field, because you’ve attracted them into your life for a reason and they’re only doing their job… to be the light you want them to be, and most of the time, it was a mutual effort and request.

6. Polarity Consciousness and Neutrality

Perhaps one of the biggest victories awaiting humanity is the shift from polarity or duality consciousness and the dichotomous right vs. wrong which has resulted in much of the conflict and suffering that exists between men and women, people of various races, the wealthy and poor, the strong and weak. Hierarchies have also been formed creating further degrees of separation, (good, better, best) where particular persons or events were rigorously judged within this context. This will end.

All of humanity will begin to understand that all experiences and perceptions are neutral in nature and it is only the ego which places an emphasis on good vs. bad, or right vs. wrong. This shift will be part of the grand awakening which is currently well on its way.  You will begin uniting and accepting each other as equals, and this will be passed to your children liberating successive generations from the shackles of duality. Humanity has already begun transcending this pattern.

Life’s experiences which are now viewed in extreme polarity and prejudice will be viewed as the natural order of one’s life. Being present in that observation by loving, allowing and accepting the world will lead to joy, happiness and enlightenment.

What Next?

The hard part is over. The only thing left to do now is alter your expectations and enjoy the ride. You are a divine being of light and your true nature will soon be all you know. The pace is now accelerating and the coming changes will also be met by shifts in monetary systems, the political landscape and well as modifications in social and economic infrastructures. This will happen sooner than later, but likely before the end of this year. Many of these events will happen simultaneously and when the greater cycles begins, you will know. It will be difficult, but that is the time to be cantered and focus on seeing all the good that will come in the age of empowerment. You are a truly empowered human… own your mastery.

The Origins Of The Spirit Animal, Totem And Power Animal

The Origins Of The Spirit Animal, Totem And Power Animal
Image Credit: https://www.whats-your-sign.com/

Aletheia LunaGuest Writer

“Animals share with us the privilege of having a soul.” – Pythagoras

It was bizarre and unexplainable: I kept having recurring dreams for about a month, where I would walk into an eerie, foreboding forest at night with a leopard peering at me through the shrubs. Its stare seemed kind, almost motherly, but very intense … somehow I knew that it was trying to tell me something about the depths of the forest ahead.

It was only recently that I discovered the existence of Spirit Animals, and that mine was the Leopard. It is said that we, as human beings, possess at least one Spirit Animal, or totem, in our lifetimes that serve as our personal protectors, guides, helpers and companions. But usually, it is common for us to have many Spirit Animal helpers throughout different periods of our lives.

In this article, I will explore the mysterious origins of the Spirit Animal.

Primitive Origins

The concept of ‘Spirit Animals’ draws its origins from ancient Animistic and Totemistic beliefs about the world and our connection to it.

Totemism, a system of belief practised by the Native American Indian people, and the Australian Aboriginal people for example, incorporates the notion that each human being has a spiritual connection to another physical being (e.g. a plant or animal).

The Kpelle people of Liberia for instance, possess animal, plant and natural phenomena (wind, rain etc.) totems that are thought to guide and protect their people. Their totems are also thought to be a form of alter ego, or second self.

Animism, on the other hand, is more in line with the world view held by many Buddhist, Shinto, Pagan and Neopagan groups of people, that all plants, animals and objects have spirits.

However, not everyone is convinced of the validity of Animism. 19th century anthropologist Sir Edward Tylor for instance, was not only one of the greatest sceptics of Animism, but was also responsible for forming the currently accepted definition of ‘Animism’. Tylor believed that Animistic beliefs were characteristic of “primitive” and “childish” peoples, who typically possess “cognitive underdevelopment”, thus discrediting the whole Animistic world view in one fell swoop.

However, it’s not necessarily intelligent to subscribe to Tylor’s opinion. When we look at Animistic belief, we see that it treats all humans, animals and plants as being equal and interdependent of each other. In other words: to the Animist it is morally imperative to treat all forms of life with respect. Not only that, but to the Animist we are part of nature, rather than being superior to nature, or separate from nature.

This belief is on the opposite end of the spectrum of the modern day “refined” and “cognitively developed” man who believes that he is the master of the world, and everything is subject to his rule. No wonder the earth’s forests, streams, oceans, park-lands and wildlife are polluted, pillaged and dying every day. “Mature” developed man has such a sickly and unintelligent mindset towards nature that he creates nothing but destruction and death wherever he treads.

So, who truly has the primitive mindset here?

Those who believe in the presence of Spirit Animals not only respect the flora and fauna of the earth as equals, but they often perceive the world around them as consisting of one and the same universal energy. This is similar to pantheistic thought which believes that man, nature and animal-kind are all the manifestations of God.

Not all new age kooks vouch for the validity of Spirit Animals either. Philosopher Baruch Spinoza concluded similar thoughts about the world:

The mind of God is all the mentality that is scattered over space and time, the diffused consciousness that animates the world.

Even famous physicist Albert Einstein was considered to be a pantheist after writing one letter to a friend in 1954:

We followers of Spinoza see our God in the wonderful order and lawfulness of all that exists in its soul as it reveals itself in man and animal.

So, does this further add to the validity of Spirit Animals existing in our lives? In the end, it’s up to you to decide whether Spirit Animals are merely primitive social constructs, or whether their long history throughout many peoples and cultures points to a higher, deeper truth.

Read our article on Spirit Animals.

Note: The phrase “Power Animal” refers to the shamanic idea that certain animals (or tutelary spirits) can physically and psychologically empower us. The Power Animal, just like the Spirit Animal, is thought to lend its wisdom, attributes, and instincts to us in times of need.
