So, everyone in the “spiritual community” has been talking about this symbolic alignment within numerology. November 11, 2011 (this FRIDAY) is truly an energetic gateway that is the strongest call for humanity to awaken to their divinity to date.

I want to inform people of this energetic portal, to lead you to your own opinion, to see if you resonate with this information, to see if you feel the change that is slowly building and will open in just 4 more days!

Of course, this portal won’t be the end or the beginning of this mass awakening. It is just another stepping stone, an influx of light hitting our planet to help us ascend, to help us see and feel the oneness we have with all creation. To help us get even closer to our divine selves, our true selves: the light beings that we are.

I hope all of you who read this will take the time to prepare for this day, to at least be aware of the energies, even if it is just sitting still for 11 minutes when the clock strikes 11:00AM on Friday.

Trust in yourself, trust in your feelings, trust in what your inner self tells you. You are divine light, you are the savior of our planet. You are the reflection of the Creator in every way, and you will turn our world into Heaven.

Check out these readings, as they have helped me to better understand what this day is all about:

I though this would be the appropriate time to post my favorite What is…? It was difficult to articulate exactly how I understand God to be, and some of the most simple phrases I used actually came from my Father. He has a true gift of storytelling and teaching and can make the most complicated idea become the easiest thing to understand. This isn’t to say that this is exactly what he thinks, or that everything in this post came from him, but he did help me put some of my beliefs into words.

What is God?

Our faith in God is constantly tested throughout each lifetime. This doubt is a product of free will – the ability to think for ourselves and explore all the possibilities of the universe. I was only tested once in my short twenty-two years. This test came in the form of a written idea from a man named Robert Monroe. His first book Journeys Out of the Body is about his personal out-of-body experiences, written in a scientifically inclined way (although there is little science that connects to this phenomenon.) Monroe found a way to approach it by using the scientific method, conducting surveys, and even testing physical responses in a lab. His skepticism, awe, and uncertainty really made this mystical phenomenon seem logical and above all, believable. His second book Far Journeys, which was written fifty years after he discovered his new ‘talent’, has a very different approach.

No longer a skeptic, Monroe’s experiences border science fiction and even I had trouble discerning whether his experiences were true or made up. Yet with the solid foundation he built in his first book I had to believe he wasn’t crazy, which is where my test of faith came in. The basic event that he documents in his book was the interaction with a being that was outside of our planet, an “alien” who happened to have visited Earth on a certain “field trip,” and that outsider perspective brought the knowledge that life on Earth was created by some super being who needed to somehow come up with a way to cultivate more love to sustain the universe. It degraded the human existence to an experiment in which some greater puppeteer created people to be unsuspecting ants, naïve of our true purpose and how little we really meant on our insignificant planet. It was such a simple and ordinary way to describe our existence that it made me question whether our God, my God, was actually a “god” at all.

From the human, “internal” perspective we have of course retained the ethnocentric view that we are these special being that God took billions of years to create. In Christianity, we view His relationship with Adam and Even as that of a father and his children. We believe that God is this supreme, pure being that took great care to place us in a paradise on Earth, although our two main ancestors destroyed that pretty quickly. Yet all those religious texts still talk about God speaking to ordinary humans, commanding them to obey his wishes, easing their pain and suffering, teaching them about love. So is God really just some humanoid that can be measured and seen by other energy forms in the spirit world beyond our solar system?

I struggled with this new concept for months before I realized how this personified “God” fit into the universe. We are born to understand certain hierarchies to help us put things and beings in place. The head of the table, the chief executive in a company, the president of a country, the Pope in the Catholic Church are all within our grasp of understanding who is in charge of what. This “God” that wasn’t a God, but a sort of scientist who needed a place to create a substance (love) was in fact portrayed as the guy above us who was “in charge.”

The realization that has been brought to my attention, albeit Monroe’s encounter with this information was real and true or not, is that despite my every attempt to not bring God down to our human level, I still could not fully grasp what or who he is. It is possible that we weren’t directly created by the omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent God who is the true Source and Creator, but the main point is that God, the True God, is all those things.

God is outside of the reasonable and logical creationism that is often assigned to Him. People need to measure things to fully understand them yet God’s purpose is not to be understood. He is outside of the realms of our universe, mainly because he is the one who created it. Just like there may be some “scientist” or spiritual entity or Angel that created human beings, there is someone who created that Angel and then someone or something that created that creator. The logical inference then is that there is some all-powerful being that has created everything. God is the ultimate Creator – the Source of all that is, but he is not confined to that hierarchical system that we seem to assign everything to. He is outside and within everything. He simply is. He did not come from anything or anywhere yet He stretches across everywhere, every-when, and everything. He is not actually a “he” or “she” or “it.” We use those terms due to language constraints only.

It is impossible to explain God. He is immaterial while we are material. It is impossible for the material to understand the immaterial. He is the ultimate Creator, outside the framework and structure of existence and although we feel His presence and see His traits throughout our system, we cannot explain Him. It is important to note that being outside the “system,” God is also outside of space and time. The constraints that are put upon human kind and even the rest of the universes do not apply to God. Time is only a characteristic of matter – it is the speed of one piece of matter relative to another and without time there is no Space, because there is no measurable distinction between one place and another. So if God is outside of this sphere of reality, how do we know He exists or what He is?

God created us in his likeness meaning that along with free will he gave us the power to create. This creativity is a trait that we can attribute to God that helps us grasp a small inference about who and what He is. Yet just as we create a painting, the characters that we paint on the canvas cannot understand us (presuming they have thoughts.) We are not within the painting yet we are its creators. The interesting part about this painting though, is that our essence, characteristics, and traits can still be shown: our use of color, brush strokes, placement of details all reflect who we are – our identity. God is reflected in our life through his traits and characteristics too. He shows himself in love, forgiveness, empathy. He shows himself through our jealousies and our conscience. We can see hints of him only through reflections like glimpses of light in a house of mirrors.

Our souls are the material counterparts that help us to communicate with Him. The soul is not physical, but it is still matter. We cannot touch the codes within a computer system, but we know they’re there whizzing through cyberspace. Like a computer code our soul is a piece of our solar system’s information field. The Akashi Records are considered to be the spiritual library where every soul’s actions, words, thoughts, feelings, ideas, etc. are stored (before, during, and after what we might consider the human experience or maybe even the periods before birth and death.) Our soul obviously carries our identity within itself and is our connection to the Holy Spirit and to the Almighty God. God is all-knowing and all-powerful and infinite and because of those traits he can and does communicate with us on a personal level. Each of us have our own personal “God” who is personified to suite our needs. In those ways he is our true Father and to some, the religious figure that they rely on.

Another example of this personification is Jesus Christ. How can the immaterial ever truly connect with the material as to be understood and grasped, like a flat, two-dimensional square can understand a three-dimensional sphere without leaving its two-dimensional world? God took the human likeness of Christ so that he could show people how to live in his likeness. Although free will is something that lets us have our own opinions (even towards or against our own Father), it is still within His world that we have this. It brings up a question of whether free will is truly free, if it was always within God’s plan for us to have it. Yet in his likeness in Christ he gave us a chance to understand more of his traits and characteristics. Christ, like any human being could not explain God or show us the true nature of God, but he did show that reflection of how we can better live in our Creator’s likeness. It does not mean that our “bad” choices are actually bad and that Adam and Eve’s original sin was evil or wrong, but the path of love that Jesus showed humanity is one worth pursuing.

In the end, God is love and love is God. Monroe’s encounter with information that came from outside of our solar system may have undermined the magnificent story of planet Earth and we really are just producers of “love” like bees producing honey. But to bees, isn’t honey the most amazing thing? And it’s hard to argue that for humanity, love is anything but the most amazing thing. The way love makes us feel, how it binds us together and brings joy to all those around us is truly a magical phenomenon. Its existence and lack of existence within our lives drives and motivates us towards our actions. When we are in love, it makes us want to do more great things, to give back, to forgive more easily. When we’re missing love it makes us sad, angry, jealous, and it can lead us to things that are inhumane and evil. All we need to take away from our meager recognition of God is that love is the most powerful and intense state of mind that humanity can experience. Despite our belief or non-belief in God we all know that love does exist because every person feels it in some way or form. Love is the part of God that is fully embedded within our system, while everything else about Him is outside of it.

One of my favorite topics ever! I discovered in my class that most people believe that “reality” must be experienced through the 5 senses and must be shared between at least 2 people. That’s the only way an experience can actually be “real.” I wonder what they think of shared dreams…

Reality can be understood in many ways.  The Oxford Dictionary defines it as “the state or quality of having existence or substance.”  The Merriam-Webster Dictionary says it is “something that is neither derivative nor dependent but exists necessarily.” In short, reality is the simple state of existence – if it exists, it is real.

This brings up the question of what it really means to exist. Existence can only be measured by someone or something who/that has the ability to measure and by that I of course mean a human being. In my opinion, anything that we are aware of exists and therefore is real. This includes material things, thoughts, ideas, dreams, wishes, illusions, hallucinations, etc. Everything that anyone has ever thought of is in some sense real.  Creation, even if it is nonphysical, still brings something into existence and so brings it into reality. Reality is present in the past, present, and future so to correct my previous statement: everything that anyone has ever thought of, is thinking of, and will think of is real. Creation breeds existence and existence creates reality.

To us, reality has a sort of subjective feature. The human view of reality is in some ways limited compared to the reality that beings who are greater than us see and understand. There is a true, ultimate reality that we, as human beings, can never know or grasp. This reality is objective and cannot be viewed from any perspective: it cannot be explained. So that leaves us to ponder our reality which is still vast as it includes all physical and non-physical things, material and non material. These distinctions create different levels of reality. Each one has a different value to human kind as a whole as well as to every individual consciousness. When I say that anything and everything is real I am maintaining that existence is pure Being; it simply IS. A dream IS as real as the bed that we have it in.

Physical reality is probably the easiest type of reality to explain. Through science, we know that we see and perceive things because of neurological relationships within our physical brain. We can see, feel, smell, and taste physical objects that are around us. We can even hear music, which lets us believe that music is in fact something that is real. The laws of nature create our outer world. Everything outside of our physical bodies has a state – things move, make noise, ARE. Chairs, tables, apples, dogs, trees, and other people: these are all physical things that make up our physical reality.

Yet we can also see dreams and visions. In them, we still feel emotions and the touch of other objects or people. We still hear conversations and other sounds. Sometimes if the dream is really vivid, we can smell the scent of flowers or other aromas. When we wake up though we know that we dreamed all those things and they are not physically part of our outside world.

This level of reality is the non material one. It influences us in ways just like physical experiences do. It has self impact on the inside and also impacts the outside world we live in to some extent.  Just last night I had a dream that I got into a fight with my boyfriend’s ex. Jolted awake at 3AM I was bitter, pissed off, and annoyed. While I’ve never met the girl in person, I saw her vividly as though I have actually seen her before. It was a construct of her image from pictures of her face, descriptions of her body type, and stories of her usual behavior. The fight was real on the level of the dream plane: it happened to me as a consciousness living in this lifetime. My nonphysical experience still influenced my existence. I might have worked out anger on insecurities that I had on the subconscious level, or it might have been a stress reliever in some sense since in the physical reality, I am not a violent person. Either way, I have learned something and grown as a person from this type of reality.

Another degree of reality is fantasy. Over time people have created many thought forms that have become universal. Unicorns, vampires, werewolves, fairies and leprechauns are universally accepted through common description. Everyone knows what a unicorn is and how it looks even though we don’t see them grazing in the fields of rural farmland in Alabama. Stories of vampires have been passed down through generations and though the idea of how it all started is unknown (maybe people over time combined real physical diseases like aversion to sunlight and a body’s need for more iron,) we can all agree that these imaginings are real on the fantastical level. We relate to these objects. When they are personified in novels and movies, we accept them, understand them, and even have feelings towards them as the pre-teen girls around the world have proved through their undying love for vampire Edward from the Twilight Sega. There have also been many sightings of ghosts reported throughout history and while some people say they are “real” others think they are “delusions” or “fantasies.” Ghosts have substance and exist necessarily even if it is just in the minds of humans which in my opinion makes them a reality.

One of the most interesting forms of reality is the one people experience through astral projection. Astral projection is when our consciousness (some say soul, some think perception) separates from the physical body by using an astral, non material, maybe even energetic vehicle to travel around a reality that is quite different from the one we experience physically. Robert Monroe has an amazing account of his own out-of-body experiences in his books Journeys Out of the Body and Far Journeys. Some people may question how real these experiences are, but they happened to him whether we believe it or not. This is why reality can be so subjective at times. Monroe’s perception of the nonphysical experiences he goes through outside of his body creates a different reality than the one he experiences when within the physical world. There are many other accounts that relate to this phenomenon, namely the near-death experience that prompted Monroe’s research. There are accounts of people dying, as measured by medical instruments, and then coming back to life and describing meetings with a white light, a spiritual being, or loved ones who have already passed away. It opens up the question of how far reality reaches. Some people may believe that once we die that is the ultimate end – the physical is the only reality there is. Yet these accounts prompt us to think that beyond our brain shutting down and our heart no longer moving and pumping blood there is a certain other reality that is still just as real as physical life, but very different in its properties.

 

A 5th Dimension Cube

This is a model of what a Cube would look like in the 5th dimension… As in Flatland it is possible, even probable, that another universe exists. Is it not real because we don’t live in it?

 

Finally, since space and time are eternal in the sense that everything has existed, exists, and will exist in some way or another (or maybe even both or neither,) reality does not just include the things that we know and understand in the “now.” It encompasses everything at once, in the same place and at the same time – there is no true distinction between space and time. In a sort of other dimension or even in multiple universes actions that propel Being either forward or backwards are “reality.” Anything that is any form of change – from nothing to something – is real.

 

So what do you guys think? Is reality really limited to our physical senses and shared experiences, or are the endless possibilities we can choose create alternate realities through space and time that are just as real as our own here on Earth in 2010?
