May the Force Be With You
Maybe we're just coming "out of the closet" about such experiences.
I have had many such experiences over the years, including a spontaneous collapse onto a cement floor, a brief trip out into the universe, and a return to what I still feel is an entirely different level of so-called reality.
To backtrack a bit, I am both a metaphysician, a mind-brain researcher and doctor of psychology.
So I want both my intuition and my logic to agree on the answer.
Whew! However something new is now peering out of the mysterious closet of the world of modern science, and it has profoundly clarified my personal understanding of the "higher self.
" Scientists exploring the nature of sub-atomic reality have found that what mystics claimed for thousands of years is absolutely true - we definitely ARE connected to a higher source of energy that goes beyond our individual normal selves.
We are now being told that ALL of life definitely exists as a single unified conscious field - an interwoven consciousness in which each part affects the whole at every moment.
In more "popular" terms - we are each like a knot on a "fisherman's net" extending out through endless dimensions of time and space.
This understanding developed as the scientists explored smaller and smaller portions of the atom.
They found that at the most extremely small and immeasurable level of reality, there's still some unknown force.
And this force is present even at the temperature of absolute zero, where all other known forms of energy vanish into an unknown invisible force field.
Did you just hear Yoda from StarWars say, "May the force be with you?" I think all seekers of higher consciousness know this to be true on an intuitive level, but scientific confirmation can boost intuition to a new level of "belief.
" Interestingly, this mysterious force field is not exactly "energy," nor is it a field of empty space.
The physicists describe it as a field of information - a "Zero-Point Field.
" This undifferentiated space from which life arises is now seen as a sea of pure consciousness, with matter and energy just two of the forms it can take.
Physicist Ervin Laszlo calls this field the "A-field.
" He seems to be referring to the ancient Vedic concept of the "Akashic record," the nonphysical repository of all knowledge in the universe long been proposed by metaphysicians.
Laszlo says, "The ancients knew that space is not empty; it is the origin and memory of all things that exist and have ever existed.
This insight is now being rediscovered at the cutting edge of the sciences [and is emerging] as a main pillar of the scientific world's picture of the twenty-first century.
This will profoundly change our concept of ourselves and of the world.
" The scientific evidence is IN! Our higher self is already totally directly connected to the One Great Source of consciousness, whatever we choose to call it.
You've heard of people who channel spirit guides, angels, extraterrestrials and ascended masters.
Since this channelled information must also originate in the Zero-Point Field, we must all be potentially capable of channelling.
In fact, perhaps our individual brains are sending and receiving stations connected to the one source of consciousness.
A conscious experience of feeling connected to this source is transformative.
It taps into the same power the geniuses, mystics, gurus, prophets, holy men and women, and great teachers throughout history have accessed.
Research proves that meditation lets dedicated meditators achieve remarkable higher levels of consciousness.
Then there's yoga, fire walking and brainwave training.
What do YOU feel is the best way to grow your higher self? Can these tools expand your ability to transcend the limits of your "physical" being and directly experience the Zero-Point Field? Many feel the answer is YES.
What do you think?
