Let not the vicissitudes of life get in the way of your spiritual growth. The inner path, the path of direct heart centered growth, is the path of the spirit, the part of you that does not judge or condemn but only focuses on going where it knows to go, onward and upward. Know that your spirit does not grow sad, does not falter, does not grow weary. It is patient as it waits for you to remember its existence, as it waits for you to catch up to its urgings, and as it waits for you to follow its path. The path of spirit is the evolutionary path of true growth in any life. Find that path and you have found your purpose.

Sending you love,

Remain as attentive to what is going on inside your body as you do to what is going on outside your body, for the body itself is a barometer of the spirit. If you ignore the warnings of the body, both your physical self and your spiritual self will eventually suffer from neglect. There are many subtle things being communicated through your body from spirit constantly. If you begin to pay attention you will begin to notice them. Your body speaks to you all the time, sometimes subtly and sometimes loudly. It would do you good to start paying attention and taking the signs seriously. How your body speaks to you is unique so learn its language in order to know its messages.

Sending you love,

Track your spirit’s yearnings throughout the day. Pay attention to what triggers it to activate, to want to live more fully. Seek out what it wants more often. Perhaps it only wants some quiet time alone with you so that the two of you can commune and grow to understand each other more fully. Perhaps it wants to tell you something but you haven’t taken the time to listen. Perhaps it just needs you to know of its existence and its urgent desire for your attention. However you commune, do so more often. It’s something you won’t regret.

Sending you love,

Chuck’s Place: Tracking The Magic

Everything is alive and communicating…

First a string of vignettes:

In my dream, I have rewired the lighting; it’s not fully operational. A silent, hostile female figure is rifling through my jewelry. I confront her. In Jan’s dream, she opens the passenger door of a dump truck as it’s unloading. Stan Grof is driving. He greets her with a big smile and eyes filled with gentle kindness.

Next I pull the tarot card for Lust (XI). Having tamed the beasts, this Anima Mundi is in complete alignment with the energy of the sun. Jan pulls the 6 of Disks: success that comes from deep within and manifests without.

I check an email from Cleargreen. I read in it a quote from don Juan that I am very familiar with: “I am saying that this is first a world of energy; then it is a world of objects.” As I read this quote aloud all the lights in the house go out. A brief glitch, then electricity is restored.

I open to Cherokee Woman’s wisdom for February 12th: Picking herbs with her grandmother when she is a little girl, she hopes she won’t have to eat them in her salad greens. She shifts focus to other dimensions of energy: the warmth of the sun and her love of being in nature with her grandmother.

Next I open the astrological Time Passages app. Moon is in Scorpio, with emphasis on energy at the level of the personality. I check my daily horoscope aspects. I feel resonance with the directive, “don’t be overly critical of others.”

I read aloud the next letter in Last Letters From The Living Dead Man, the chapter entitled, The Watchers. We learn that most souls are only partly incarnated into physical reality. The High Self is the Silent Watcher who waits in infinity as it watches and allows the personality to learn its lessons, sending occasional messages of guidance, support, or challenge. The suggestion is made to see the Silent Watcher in everyone, regardless of the current state of their personality. The Judge, himself a Watcher who dictates the letter, points out his own influence upon the souls in this world through his concentrated thought that is picked up here telepathically.

End of vignettes.

These vignettes depict a typical morning flow. I share them to demonstrate how to track the magic, the magic of the flow of energy from and through our multidimensional selves.

This blog is written on the morning described above. A previous version had been written two days earlier, as I pushed to complete it to make room for other upcoming activities. That ego push proved disappointing; though the ideas were stirring they truly weren’t ready to be gelled by the guiding hand of Spirit.

Dreams are the royal road to communication and interaction with the subtler dimensions of life. Dreaming occurs in brain frequencies that, like trance, allow for communication and education between energetic dimensions.

My dream pointed out that the wiring I had redone was inadequate for an enlightened space. The Silent Watcher antagonist pointed to the jewelry, the persona/ego/personality dimension that emphasizes the will and emotion.

Jan’s dream pointed to the clearing of the deeper transpersonal dimension of the self via Mr. Transpersonal himself, Stan Grof. To arrive at this level, one must first tame the beasts of the personality as the Tarot card of Lust depicts. Jan’s card emphasizes that success requires a balance, as within so without.

The shaman’s world chimes in with the affirmation that yes, the self is both pure energy and solid object, but start with the knowledge that all is energy first. The Silent Watcher trickster totally enjoyed this teaching moment, cutting the power, the energy, at a synchronistic moment. Synchronicity with nature is an ever-present meeting place between dimensions of self.

The emphasis on energy first is picked up by Judge Hatch, in his missives from the afterlife, as he suggests that we try to observe the High Self in everyone. Though it may not be currently emphasized within the behavior of the personality, we are all energy first, Spirit beings. This focus helps one break the negativity of critical judgement suggested by my astrological reading, which also pointed to the need for emotional work at the subconscious personality level of Moon in Scorpio.

Astrology, Tarot and the I Ching are comprehensive meeting places for the Silent Watcher’s reflection of the overall state of the Self. Books of wisdom, or simply any books randomly opened, are also meeting places for Spirit’s messages, portrayed through written words.

Cherokee Woman also prescribes a method to step beyond the dominance of the wanting personality and into deeper energetic truth. She suggests taking advantage of awakening from mental ruminations that generate dullness in the moment to discover the luster of love and a private meeting with Self.

Finally, the Judge alerts us to the powerful impact of concentrated thought that issues from the Spirit dimension of being and is telepathically received at the solid body dimension of the human brain. Synchronous communications frequently come to me in the form of thoughts—great ideas!—that for years my ego assumed were its own!

Thought energy operates on a shared frequency between dimensions that makes possible the transmission of thought from the more subtle planes of reality to this dimension, as well as among beings currently in human form. Don’t let the solid boundary of the physical body fool you. Thoughts are energetic and permeable, completely transparent at an energetic level. Remember, as don Juan emphasizes, energy first!

Be mindful to not inflate the ego with thought ownership and instead employ its reasoning capabilities to discern the validity of thoughts from beyond. If the shoe doesn’t fit, don’t wear it!

Every one of us tracks the magic of our multidimensional selves daily. The more we awaken to the fullness of ourselves, the more fully informed and participatory we become to the magic of all that is possible.

Tracking the Magic,

Look upon the world with your spirit eyes today and see how the energy of everyone interacts with the energy all around, how one person’s energy meets another’s, how time flows through everything and everyone, and how all energies mingle throughout the Earth’s sphere. In this manner discover that judgment has no place, for all are one substance, that of vibratory energy and thus there is little difference except in personality, for your personality stays with you no matter your form, but even that is highly refined in your energetic state. Remember this as you go about your day. Use your spirit eyes today and see what a difference it makes.
