Focus on the positive, on the dream you are dreaming forward now, taking it on as your most profound undertaking. When the dream calls you, take it on with the intent of a warrior, knowing that this is it, this is the call you have been waiting for. Give it your all that it may give you all it has to offer in return. When you dream like a warrior you make new life happen.
Is it a particle or is it a wave? Physicists have come to the conclusion that it is both. Sometimes it, (that is, our self) appears in solid form, sometimes in pure energy form.
Don Juan, Carlos Castaneda’s teacher added that we are always energy first. What we call physical is a specific configuration of energy that has materialized into a solid form. Nonetheless, our solid physical form regularly shifts into its energetic essence.
This happens to us automatically every night in dreaming. A part of our solid energy form dissolves into its energy body state where it is free to travel the universe in an instant with such lightness of being.
Dreaming allows the energy body to be bathed in pools of energy that release the stress accumulated in the physical body during its daytime encounters in the dense physical world. If we are denied our REM sleep, our energy body dreaming state, we lose our physical and mental ability to function coherently.
Our ultimate Self, what we might call our Soul, resides in our energy body. The basis for this conclusion is the fact that the energy body does not die when the physical body dies. Our energy body consolidates all of our energy at the time of physical death and then flies off into infinity.
Our nightly energy body dreams are the gateway to explorations in infinity while we are still securely attached to our physical body that lies in deep, frozen, space-time rest while we journey. This attachment remains firm until the cord is cut when we undertake our definitive journey into infinity at the time of our death.
Consciousness is retained beyond the physical world of space-time. We experience this while in physical form in our nightly dreams with our energy body. We are fully capable of thinking and reasoning in our dreams, however, our physical capacities are actually thought imagery projections in dreaming as our physical body is held in a state of transitory paralysis while in REM sleep. Sleep walking is actually a failure of this suppression of the physical body in dreaming, which results in active physical accompaniment to a dream.
In ordinary dreaming the energy body releases the physical and emotional energies and entanglements from a day of waking life. Lucid, shamanic, and out-of-body explorations are more advanced forms of dreaming where consciousness is aware it is in a dreaming state and great control is exerted over staying present to the expanded opportunities for exploration in this altered energetic state.
The great energy of now is offering all of us a terrific boost of energy to discover and cultivate our latent potential to expanded awareness and exploration in our energy body’s nightly adventures. What was once the province of shamans and advanced yogis and monks is now available to all seekers who embrace the intent to retain awareness in dreaming.
All roads lead to the energy body, the carrier of our infinite soul. Enjoy it, explore with it, find the answers to the mystery of your soul’s intent with it. Dream on!
Get grounded. Send your energy through your feet and into the earth even as you bring it inward and work on your heart’s intent. With gratitude accept the healing power of your own body, mind, and spirit and remain firmly on your path of heart.
Let bygones be bygones as you turn away from that which is no longer nurturing, sustaining, or healthy. Let float away, without regret, the old ways as you turn in a new direction and welcome new ways that offer more than the old ways of the past. Embrace new life every day in the decisions and choices you make, in the thoughts you think, and in each breath you take. As the seasons turn and change so too has the human being the opportunity to turn and change too, with intent. New life awaits in each moment, for each moment is indeed turning time. Turn and walk in a new direction today, within and without.
Life is calling to you. What are you waiting for? If not now, when? It’s not about entitlement, it’s about owning your fullest potential. It’s just a matter of taking that first step and setting the whole thing in motion. Let go of fear and guilt; embrace loving kindness. Get your priorities straight and with your heart’s intent uppermost in your mind take your life’s journey in that new direction you have been yearning for. That first step is yours alone to take. Once you do that the entire universe will sit up and take notice, and then who knows what might happen! Everything really is possible. Any day is a good day for a new journey to begin. Why not today?
