MULTI-LEVEL AWARENESS

multi-level awareness technique - swygard

Hour-long CD for self-exploration of the Multi-Level Awareness Technique

The following technique is not to be taken lightly, because it is the beginning of a mental-spiritual experience that will allow YOU to KNOW YOURSELF. By this, it is meant that YOU, without the aid of a teacher or an assistant of any kind, ( after a few preliminary exercises) can bring into your physical consciousness your entire past – your incarnations on this planet, your experiences before you came to this planet; in fact, you can see for yourself everything you have experienced since your spirit was released from the Creator.

This designation, “Multi- Level Awareness,” is the correct nomenclature – a direct translation of its designation throughout more  solar  systems  and  galaxies than the present awareness of mankind on Earth under stands.

The technique, “Multi- Level Awareness,” is simple. There is nothing you can add to it to make  it  work better or quicker . It works with every one.

  1. Make a person comfortable. Have the person remove h, is shoes and  lie down. Clasp his legs,  one  at a time, just above the knee and manipulate your hands downward, stopping at the knee briefly to make certain the knee is relaxed; then rubbing on, down to the ankle and bend the ankle; then  massage  the foot,  and  then the toes briefly and vigorously. Repeat this manipulation quickly. Next, place the palm of your hand on the person’s forehead, and with little pressure, move  the skin of the forehead up and down and sideways  for  a few seconds. This relaxation process should not be overdone.
  2. Ask the person to close his eyes and after a brief moment, ask him to become a few inches taller  by  al lowing himself to stretch  out  through  the  bottom  of  his feet. Then say to him, “Tell  me  as  soon  as  you  have done this.” When he says that he has  accomplished  this, pause  a  few  seconds  and   say,   “Go   back   to   normal size. Tell me as soon as you have done “

Then, ask him to repeat the exercise, only the second time ask him to become  “a  foot”  taller.  “Tell  me  as soon as you have done this.” When he agrees, pause again and tell him to go  back  to normal  size. “Tell  me as soon as you have done  this.”  Repeat  the  foot tall routine again. Each time ask him to tell you  when he has accomplished the exercise.

Now, go to the other end  of  the  body. “Become a few inches taller by extending yourself out through the top of your head. Tell me when you have  done  this.” Then back to normal size. Then, do a foot taller  three times through the head. Always  ask  him  to  tell  you when he is done.

The next step requires further exercising . “Now, this time extend yourself through the head, face, body, arms, legs and feet. In other words, blow yourself up just like a balloon. Tell me as soon as you have done this.” Then go back to normal size. All of the time, through out these exercises, be jovial and keep your voice firm and convincing, yet be ready to laugh, and keep the person going quickly and smoothly through these preliminaries. Once he has done them well, there is never a need to repeat them.

Next, tell him to blow up like a balloon again, only much larger this time. When he tells you he had done this, ask him to go quickly and stand in front of the building where he lives. “Tell me when you are there.” As soon as he says so, start him talking.  Ask  him  to see this and that, and to describe what he sees. Tell  him to look for, one at a time, the door, door knob, windows, walkways, trees, shrubs, marks  of  any  kind. After he sees and  describes to you, these objects, tell him to, “Go quickly and stand on the roof of the building and look down into the road (or yard) in front Tell me as soon as you are there.” Ask him to see and describe such objects as cars, road, trees, etc. When this is completed, tell him to go about 500 feet up  into the air and look dawn. ( One in a hundred may  object  at this point but remind  him  quickly  that  he is still safe in the room.) Then repeat the request. “Tell me as soon as you are there.” Ask him to see what he can observe and report it to you. Keep him talking.

The person may tell you throughout this phase of outdoor work that he is “imagining things,” but remind him gently that this is an exercise in awareness and continue as if he had said nothing.

  1. After he has described to you things he sees from this advantage of altitude, ask him whether it is daytime or nighttime. When he tells you it is one or the other, ask him to tell you why he thinks    He  will say something like, “It is daytime because everything is light and I can see just  as  if  it  were  daylight, so  it must  be  daytime.”  Or, “It is night because l see street lights and house lights,”  etc.  Or,  “It  is sort  of  twilight, you  know,  just  like  after  the  sun  has  gone  down.”  If it is night time or twilight  in his vision, ask  him  to  make it  daytime  –  bright  as  sunlight.  “Tell  me  as  soon  as you have done this.” Then ask him to tell you why  he thinks  it  is  daytime.  Keep  him  talking,  talking  all  of the time. If it was daytime  to  begin  with,  ask  him  to make it night; and then  ask  him  why  he  thinks  it  is night.  Turn  the  days  into  nights  and  back  again   at least three times,  but  be  certain  that  you  finish  this phase by having it daytime – a very bright sunny day.

Then, quickly ask him, “Who  is  making  it  night and day?” Most will quickly answer, “I am!” If he hesitates more than ten seconds, ask him, “Are YOU making it night and day?” He will agree. It is very important that he understands that he is causing this change.

  1. “Now, are you still high in the air?” The answer will be, “Yes.” “Please keep the scene very bright. Come back to earth i another lifetime that you lived many years ago. Come down quickly as you go back in time; bring your feet down quickly and firmly,  but  gently, and stand on the ground. Tell me as soon as you are there.”

Watch the person’s face. As soon as there is eye movement under the lids,  tell  him, “Please look down at your feet and tell me what you are wearing on your feet.”

The person is now experiencing a good vision of a previous life.

Remind him frequently to, “Look out through your eyes and listen through your ears.” Ask, “What are you  wearing  on the lower  part  of  your body?” Wait for descriptions, but keep the person talking. The more talk the better he will see in the beginning. Insist that the person do only what you tell him to do and answer your  questions;  remembering  to  keep  the questions in some semblance of chronological order. Move the person onward in time – skip a day, a week, month or year in his lifetime, but keep him  moving and talking.

At the end of the  lifetime,  ask  the person  to  go  to  an earlier lifetime by requesting, “Come down in an earlier lifetime – look down at your feet and tell me what you are wearing on them.”

At the end of the second or third lifetime you have run through, ask him to “die” and follow through the “death,” asking, “What happens next?” (when you do not have specific questions). No matter what he reports, do not question the validity. This is new material for people to understand. After you have been a few people through several lifetimes, you will understand that this material is valid. When he has  run  incidents between his lives, ask him to go back and find his present parents, from the first time he saw them until after he was born.

Ask questions, questions, questions.

When you discontinue the running process at any time, ask the person, “Do you see any need to continue at this time?” Let him decide when to stop.

When you continue with this person at a later time, make him comfortable (but no need to rub), tell him to turn the lights on inside, and go quickly back to where he left off last time.

After three to  five hours  of “coaching” or assisting  a person, he should be quite ready to run himself. It takes a person a little time to learn to ask himself questions. As soon as  he  can  ask  himself  questions, he is ready to go alone. If he reports back  to you  that he is “stuck,” run him a little more, but make him ask the questions.

Practice is of the essence. Soon an entire lifetime can be seen in a few minutes with all senses in force.

There are no wasted words in the above. Failure to succeed is failure to follow the  instructions.  It is fun to run and to be run. Change off. The more you run, the better coach you become. Do a lot of both.

As this technique of “Multi-Level Awareness” is mastered, write to the address below and receive at no charge, the technique, “Multi-Plane Awareness.” Upon completion of  this, request “Perfecting the Spirit.” (Stamped addressed envelope appreciated in each case.) Mastery of these three easy techniques will prove that mankind, his beliefs, ideals, goals and perform­ances on this planet are obsolete.

Multi-Plane Awareness Technique – Swygard

MULTI-PLANE AWARENESS

multi-plane awareness technique on youtube

Audio version with binaural beats and Solfeggio frequencies for individual exploration.

As with the starting technique, “Multi-Level Aware­ness,” a helper may be needed to assist you  the first time through this exercise.

Always be ready to accept what you see and hear while using these instructions. This type of material is ENTIRELY NEW on this planet. You are here to learn, not to argue. When your higher consciousnesses teach, it is well to respond.

Sit in a comfortable chair, relax and close your eyes.

Integrate by letting your head become full of light. Have someone direct you, or you may direct yourself, exactly as follows:

( If you are going to direct yourself, speak out loud.)

“Go to the Fourth Plane and find your Fourth Plane Consciousness. Go quickly now and tell me when you are  standing before your  Fourth  Plane Consciousness.”

Then you have done this and tell your  helper so, he will say,

” Look at the Fourth Plane Consciousness and determine whether it is male or female. When you are familiar with its appearance ask the Fourth Plane Consciousness what its name ls. If you cannot understand immediately what the name is, ask the Fourth Plane Consciousness to spell it.”

Tell your helper the apparent sex and name of your Fourth·  Plane Consciousness. The name is not the same as yours. It will come clearly to you. It should be one name only. No need to strive for more. The helper will write down the name and sex for you.

When this is accomplished the helper will tell you,

” Now, go inside your Fourth Plane Consciousness. Just jump right inside your Fourth Plane Body. Become as one with it. Look out through its eyes. Tell me as soon as you have done this.”

When you and your Fourth Plane Consciousness are integrated or merged as one, tell your helper so. You must be looking out through the Fourth Plane Consciousness’ eyes. Do not proceed to the next step until your are able to do this.

The helper will continue.

“Look around on the Fourth Plane. Do not be surprised if each succeeding consciousness is larger and taller than the preceding one. Do not be surprised if sometimes your other consciousnesses  may  appear  to be of the opposite sex.”

“Your Integrated Consciousnesses will now go quickly to the Fifth Plane. Tell me as soon as you are standing before your Fifth Plane  Consciousness. Tell me which sex it is. Tell me what its name is. Now, go inside your Fifth Plane Consciousness and tell me as soon as you are integrated. Look out through the Fifth Plane eyes. Look around the Fifth Plane a short while.”

By this time you have the idea and you can proceed quickly. If any difficulty arises in completing any part of the exercise quickly it is most likely that you need to turn on more light. Your helper continues, pausing after each sentence until you are finished.

“All of you go to the Sixth Plane and stand before your Sixth Plane Consciousness. Note its sex and learn its name. Integrate with it and loo k out through the Sixth Plane eyes.”

“All of you go to the Seventh Plane and stand before your Seventh Plane Consciousness. Note  its  sex  and learn its name. Integrate with it and look out through the Seventh Plane eyes.”

“All of you go to the Eighth Plane and stand before your Eighth Plane Consciousness. Note its sex and learn its name. Integrate with it and look out through the Eighth Plane eyes.”

“All of you go to the Ninth Plane and stand before your Ninth Plane Consciousness. Note its sex and learn its name. Integrate with it and look out through  the Ninth Plane eyes.”

“All of you go to the Tenth Plane and stand before your Tenth Plane Consciousness. Note its sex and learn its name. Integrate with it·and look out through the Tenth Plane eyes.”

“All of you go to the Eleventh Plane and stand before your Eleventh Plane Consciousness. Note its sex and learn its name. Integrate with it and look  out through the Eleventh Plane eyes.”

“All of you go to the Twelfth Plane and stand before your Twelfth Plane Consciousness. Note its sex and learn its name. Integrate with it  and  look out through the Twelfth Plane eyes.”

You are now completely integrated with all of your Plane Consciousnesses. The name of your Twelfth Plane Consciousness is your “constant” or ” spiritual” name.

Your helper continues.

” Look around on the Twelfth Plane and describe what you see. All consciousness should practice looking at objects or people in unison.

“Are other people there? ( If not,”Go find someone.” )

When someone is near to you, call him (or her) over to you and tell him that you are integrated with all of the Plane consciousnesses. Ask him to help you by coming closer and looking into your eyes. Open your physical eyes  and  look at me. ( Or  around  the room if doing this alone.) Now, you can see on the Twelfth Plane, and this, the Third Plane, at the same time. Your helper friend can look into your Twelfth Plane Consciousness eyes and see into the Third Plane. Th is is proof that you are totally integrated on all planes. “Now, tell your Twelfth Plane helper friend that you  are going to bring all of your Consciousnesses to the Third Plane. Thank him for helping. Acknowledge each request on the way down.

“All of the Consciousnesses come down to the Eleventh Plane. Now, all come to the Tenth Plane. All come down to the Ninth Plane. All come down to the Eighth Plane. All come down to the Seventh Plane. To the Sixth Plane. To the Fifth Plane. To the Fourth Plane. Now, right on down to the Third Plane.”

You may notice a quite full feeling.

“Open your eyes and allow the integrated consciousnesses to view the room and other people (if possible) through your physical eyes. They may ask questions. Answer the questions out loud. When they are satisfied for the time being, close your eyes and ask to see out through the back of your head, out through the  walls into the area around the building you are  occupying. Ask to see further if you desire.  This ability signifies that you have the integrated consciousnesses with you on the Third Plane.”

Ask all of the consciousnesses to visit you often just as you will visit them. They must also visit each other often. When all are satisfied that they have been well rewarded for their important efforts, your helper will continue.

“Now, all of you go to the Fourth Plane. The Fourth Plane Consciousness will please step out”

“All of the rest go to the Fifth Plane. The Fifth Plane Consciousness will pleas e step out”

“All of the rest go to the Sixth Plane.  The  Sixth Plane Consciousness will please step out”

“All of the rest go to the Seventh Plane. The Seventh Plane Consciousness will please step out”

“All of the rest go to the Eighth Plane. The Eighth Plane Consciousness will please step out”

“All of the rest go to the Ninth Plane. The Ninth Plane Consciousness will please step out”

“All of the rest go to the Tenth Plane. The Tenth Plane Consciousness will please step out”

“All of the rest go to the Eleventh Plane. The Elev­enth Plane Consciousness will please step out”

“All of the rest go to the Twelfth Plane. The Twelfth Plane Consciousness will please step out”

“The Third Plane Consciousness will now descend rapidly down through the planes and come to the Third Plane body. Open your eyes. Welcome home.”

You have been introduced to “Multi-Plane Awareness.” You can do  this easily now without outside help. Practice as often as you can. Spend more time on each plan e. Become close “friends” with your higher consciousnesses. You may go directly to any one plane without bothering the others.

Then, invite them down between times to visit you. Sta rt doing this when you are integrated (furnish light inside your head ). Ask for a Plane Consciousness to write down by name or plane number. They will thoroughly enjoy this. Soon they will come of the r own volition. They a re most anxious to learn about Third Plane activities through integrated awareness. Remember, when you are integrated with one or more other consciousnesses, you can readily understand their thoughts and desires.

At this stage, you are among the most integrated persons ever to walk this planet. Plan to practice as often as possible, while resting, working or playing. It will soon become second nature to do this. Notice your new mental and physical abilities, When you have a mental or physical problem, integrate (light in your head) and call on your consciousnesses to help supply an answer to your problem. They never miss. This is the way the Creator made you. Be whole, be perfect, be your true self.

You know your  constant  name.  Think of  yourself as that name. You are  now  able to  ask  and  see into the future. There are no secrets in the physical creation withheld from you. Ask and you shall receive and know. You are free.

Below is a more recent explanation of the Multi-plane Awareness Technique after years of use.

On Hearing Voices – New Thinking Allowed

On Hearing Voices, a conversation with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove

Across the decades of experiencing high strangeness and other worlds there has been a consistency of communication for me. I’ve caught a lot of grief over the notion of hearing things many don’t, but it hasn’t impeded the acknowledgement within that I do. After some conversation about the direction of our interviews, based on the pseudo-autobiography Stubbing My TOE on Purpose, Jeffrey felt a discussion on hearing voices would be something that could assist and even support others in similar conundrums and enigmas in their lives.

His synopsis of this interview: Here he [Zen] describes his life history, as an individual who has heard voices since childhood. Looking back over the decades, he concludes that this has largely been a positive experience — and has enabled him to explore many interior realms. However, at one time he was warned by a friendly psychiatrist that he should be very careful regarding those with whom he shares these inner experiences.

Hearing voices, like seeing craft in the sky, is as subjective as personal experience goes. FREE’s Beyond UFOs presents a variety of papers and statistics on experiencer responses, nearly 4,000, to a series of surveys. There is a speculative notion that non-human intelligence (ETs) has a way of creating illusions to keep us happy with results of what we hope to see, at least in regard to the non-physical sightings. Those remnants on the ground, whether burnt grass or crop circles is a different story.

For now, though, I’d like to go a little deeper into what we know about the ‘senses’ we have and their potential for revealing more than we anticipate at times.

Sensory Perception on Steriods?

Our external sight is limited by our ability to see, just the same as hearing and on hearing voices. It’s been said that if we have no internal reference from some past ‘visual’ that some things we simply cannot see. Peering into a ‘next level’ of bandwidth, so to speak, is something a few are able to do and yet most dismiss their accounts. I like to use an example, rather loosely comparing 10% of brain use with 5 senses. If we agree loosely, it could be possible that we have 45 more senses with the other 90% or our cranial capacity or brain power. It’s a simple ratio extrapolated.

In recent years the focus on consciousness has increased, not just in ufology, and offers some consideration for expanded awareness. In the past, the ‘clair-alls’ have gotten some attention – clairaudience (hearing), clairsentience (physical feeling), clairvoyance (seeing), claircognizance (knowing), clairgustance (tasting), clairempathy (emotions), clairtangency (touch) and clairsalience (smelling). So with those 8, let’s redo the ratio: 10:8 = 90:72. That’s an extraordinary number of possibilities if the logic stands. It certainly gives pause for consideration.

Then there is waking consciousness, altered consciousness, dream consciousness and no doubt more variations on those themes. Then there are the various brain waves – Delta (.5 – 4 Hz – deep sleep), Theta (4 – 7.5 Hz – light sleep or meditation), Alpha (7.5 – 14 Hz – deep relaxation), Beta (14 – 40 Hz – waking/reasoning) and finally Gamma (above 40 Hz – insight/peak performance). The Solfeggio frequencies also seem to have an effect on perception.

Where are we in those ranges when ‘contact’ happens? Do we know? Is that something we can study or just become more aware of the relative frequencies we perceive during such events? Is this exploration still something humanity is grappling with and unable to be vulnerable enough to talk about openly?

I find it interesting that hearing frequencies are associated with various levels of contact and interdimensional travel, as it were, either as a precursor or during the event. The most obvious for me during initial experiences being the lower ranges (perhaps Theta) and the low slow ‘pulse’ that has often accompanied such events for me… like a heartbeat that permeates everything in those moments. Over time and with continued communication development, the high pitched (upper Solfeggio) seem to be ever-present in the stillness, akin to the Shabda of Hindu persuasion… the ‘sound current’ of all life on Earth.

What I ponder more than wonder is the natural order and New World Order that rising awareness and consciousness seem to reveal. That experience is replete with representation across the electromagnetic spectrum as a system of infinite complexity and order that, once comprehended becomes a simple notion of Natural Order we are just beginning to explore, the congruence of things in space, time and consciousness tethered and tantalizing to the senses within our Being.

New Thinking Allowed – The New World Order

The New World Order – A Poignant View

I had a dream come true this last weekend, a conversation with Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove. How it came about was as synchronistic as it could be and the added bonus of actually being interviewed by him for New Thinking Allowed (three episodes) was certainly icing on the cake. I’m so grateful for the opportunity.

Most of you I’m sure are aware that my life is ‘themed’ with the idea of harmony among people and planet – a true ‘new world order.’ Well, we explored that very topic…

Would love your comments and sharing with friends and networks. Jeffrey thought this is a timely conversation. Thanks in advance for your likes, shares and comments.

It was really a pleasure, full of excitement and trepidation. To feel vulnerable enough to share this kind of stuff, and to be invited by the premiere host of our time, is a most humbling experience. I neglected to explore ‘facilitate’ to make it clear I do not feel like I am ‘The One’ which is often a mistaken perspective people take.

A New World Order isn’t about dominance and submission in any traditional sense, nothing to fear in other words. What is of primary importance is that each individual discovery their true form, fit and function in this world; a true new world order naturally emerges from that process. It is not without chaos or conflict. In fact, the transformation of it is how the new order emerges.

Those areas of chaos and conflict hold the key and asking the right questions, beginning with “Why?” and followed by “How?” lead us to discoveries beyond our imagination in most cases. I wrote a piece about the event that resides on MothershipCafe.com if you are interested in my considerations.

Jeffrey did a follow-up supportive video about a gentleman we both admire, Donald Fraser Keys. Jeff knew him well. I have modeled PlanetaryCitizens.net based on his initial work, along with a mentor of mine, Khigh Alex Dheigh. He was involved with the promotion of world citizenship. Khigh is featured in a video there reading a world citizen credo. It’s worthy of attention. Some of you might recognize him from the Manchurian Candidate or Wo Fat on Hawaii Five-0.

Whether or not our perception of ‘scheduled events’ is a coping strategy for high strangeness or indeed an attempt to become more visible, it is obvious there is a massive infrastructure of communication networks buried in our consciousness. Some tap into it for greater or lesser periods. Its nature of being ‘out of time’ as a non-linear and even non-local series of events give us cause to explore the phenomena further, but how?

Perhaps the idea of discovering our true form, fit and function leads us in the right direction. We already know the universe has impeccable math contained within it. Why wouldn’t we as well? I think I might have a way to at least begin to discern the process, if one is asking the questions, of course.

Oftentimes one would notice an increase in what I like to call ‘tangential’ thinking; darting about the mind’s field of available information and having fleeting thoughts that lead to others in a seemingly disjointed fashion. These same events in consciousness also happen in conversations where the subject matter seems to change on a dime and tracking the points might be challenging to observers as well as the participants at times. The latter promotes deep friendships from my experience.

Recognizing this processing system, a pattern of thinking if you will, often contains the hints to accessing one’s form, fit and function. If we are observant enough, patterns of opportunity to engage the present present themselves in a variety of ways. Being aware of the tangential, we look for congruent or repetitive aspects that show up in our lives in practical and pragmatic ways; a prudent path or multiple sequential ones are often revealed. Simply, what shows up in front of us that we can see needs to be done is often the direction our discovery takes.

As patterns connect and evolve we begin to see how our specific skill set, or at least a gut feeling we recognize, leads to noticing specific and synchronistic events unfolding around us. What do we do then? This is where our choices affect the flow. In the event of ascertaining ‘flow,’ we get a sense of ‘yes’ without the slightest hesitation. All others are suspect and may need further analysis.

The nature of universal flow includes the multidimensional mathematical models of Neppe & Close, Hawkings and others, it would seem. The manifestation of events congruent with such laws of the universe produce a sense of harmony or even bliss in the individual experience, sometimes even group experiences. Humans haven’t been in touch with that in their climb to dominance in the world. Stewardship has been lacking.

The need for stewardship is the essence of the ‘message’ from those ‘with’ the Galactic Federation as well. The mathematical models turn into experiential events internally, sometimes even externally, as recognition of certain patterns that produce serendipitous moments. Speculative as it may be, we have the opportunity to explore it as an aspect of consciousness manifesting in form, fit and function on scales currently incomprehensible.

The Old Word Order, a paradigm of command and control, even though it has been masqueraded as a New World Order, cannot compare to the scope and sequence of what is to come. Planetary or World Citizens by nature, still defined by so many names and titles in the world now, can sense a change coming and feel the need to support it. Many just aren’t sure how, yet.

Perhaps this natural evolution is what frightened the ruling families who’ve managed the mayhem throughout history by instilling a fear of a unified world through whatever means available. They think it means they will lose power, and maybe how they’ve viewed their power and its influence will cease. What emerges will be far more powerful in the sharing of resources, environmentally-friendly industrial processes, alternative energy distribution, even reassignment of military functionality as guaranteed supply chains and support systems for the shift.

These notions are worth consideration and perhaps they will find favor in reading. I hope so.

Do We Really Know How to Love and Be Loved?

Perhaps this post will be misunderstood and I’ll get some blow-back from the usual uneducated and/or misinformed folks. I’m okay with that. This is how we learn. I’ve known some Imams (definition: any of various rulers that claim descent from Muhammad and exercise spiritual and temporal leadership over a Muslim region) who are some of the most caring and kind people I know. There is no need for fear, period.

I participated in an Interfaith gathering a couple of years ago that included exemplary leaders – Imam, Rabbi, Hindu, Christian and Indian. It was obvious we all had the same goal of honoring each other and everyone in the spirit of unity.

There is a need to learn how to get along if we are ever going to experience a peaceful world that supports life for everyone. Perhaps when we can get beyond the perceived religions separation, we can learn to behave like real human beings as one people on one planet, sharing resources like grown-ups.

As is mentioned in the video, it isn’t the ‘law’ but the people who misinterpret or even try to ‘make’ laws based on their own bias. There is no ‘God-given’ rights to doing harm to anyone or anything. That is all man’s doing through their false and misguided belief systems.

All books written by man to justify their choices. It has absolutely nothing to do with LOVE. We all, by our most basic nature, want to love and be loved. We choose not to behave that way.

That is why we must choose to honor the essence of all teachings… to love and be loved. To stand in that truth is tantamount to changing how we behave toward each other. How we example that is what inspires others to do the same.

Perhaps I’m an outlier in that way, I literally gave up my life to know truth and the result was a gift of an experience of that feeling, to know what real unconditional love was like, and to bring that back into this world and live accordingly.

Independent Party of Arizona

Commerce, Education & Community for the 21st Century

Bridging Boundaries for Beneficial Results

“Independent thinking has been the foundation of growth for America and will restore our country’s leadership – not from power, technology or wealth – but from making sense common in doing the right things toward a better future for all in the 21st Century. We think the Independent Party of Arizona can do just that for our future.” Bruce ‘Zen’ Benefiel, MA, MBA

Challenge to Change

Removing Liabilities, Limitations and Excuses in the service to Arizonans through the Independent Party of Arizona. Several years ago the Arizona Chapter of the American Society for Training and Development held its annual conference with the theme – Challenge to Change: Removing Liabilities, Limitations and Excuses in the Workplace. It was the touted as the best leadership conference in over a decade. We want to apply that philosophy appropriately toward the State of Arizona.

Making Sense Common… what does that mean? When all the biased, personal and corporate profit-driven agendas fall away, what truly needs to be done emerges… and the truth shall become self-evident. This self-evident agenda, one that creates harmony among people and planet, is our mission to discover. Let’s restore the Faith, Love and Trust we have in our humanity and ability to work together – a new millennial mindset.

Establishing an Independent Party Convention early in 2018 with the same theme is perhaps one of the greatest opportunities facing Arizona’s Independent constituency. Independents may not all align with our intention, yet independent thinking is our foundation. Join the Independent Party Meetup and let’s follow Socrates admonition…

The secret to change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.

Independent Party of Arizona

az independent party, independent party of arizonaThe Independent Party of Arizona bridges parties as well as cultural communities and is what America was set up to do. Arizona has the golden opportunity to set the standard for coalescing multiple concerns and factions toward a cohesive and collaborative administration. The result of such would change the course of current deficits and inability to serve our population in so many ways. It would also catapult the use of alternative energy production through the combined efforts of communities and commercial development.

Our state is ripe for developing carbon sequestration efforts using horticulture solutions such as hemp or kenaf, proven carbon sponges with low water requirements and cash crops that have high commercial value. Bridging proven alternative and/or holistic health care programs and insurance providers will ultimately bring health care costs down and reduce costs for the State and YOU. A serious look at the fiscal policies and organizational waste of the State is imperative, with savings that could easily be in the tens of millions of dollars. All it takes is making sense common.

It is time for the Independent Party in Arizona to create seminal views of administering resources and demonstrate what collaboration and partnering can really accomplish! Arizona can lead the way, rising from the ashes because we know what is possible – people, places and things aligning for the good of all people and our environment.

We can demonstrate that our production of food and textiles is not hindered by our climate and can even be part of the carbon sequestration solution. We can demonstrate that Arizona’s alternative energy production equals and/or exceeds traditional methods.

School funding and teacher retention is a critical issue. We can find answers and implement solutions. Wind and solar farms are a big deal today, creating a cleaner future. Arizona is ripe for high-level solar power production. We can demonstrate that our health care system can and does meet the needs of every citizen, including our veterans, without a burden. We can mobilize a public already receiving benefits.

We can be the leaders, but we have to make the effort and learn how to work as one. That is our greatest challenge – to work in harmony for people and planet. We’re different. The Independent Party of Arizona will drive the future of politics, serving Arizonans and leading us toward a brighter 21st Century.

It is painfully obvious that our country is in need of leadership that can move the public concerns to the top of the priority list and actually serve the people. Those concerns include healthy food (GMOs have been banned by many countries already), renewable sustainable energy (research shows that fracking and old carbon-based energy sources are destroying our environment), new millennial education (children need a holistic approach to education, not a test-driven performance outcome) and appropriate health care for all (cost isn’t an issue, people are the issue). There are ways to adjust and thrive in the new millennium, but the current system isn’t providing those ways.

In just 6 (six) years the House and Senate can be completely overhauled – gutted, remodeled or renovated. It will probably take much longer – but it is possible with your help… each of US. No one is left out and everyone has a voice and a vote. It’s time we exercised that right and made use of the power of the people. It is not an easy task by any stretch of the imagination. We don’t need a civil war again to take action and make things better.

What other choice do we have? We are a peaceful, purpose-driven society that abhors inhumane treatment of others. Corporations have taken over and people have become inhumane towards each other. It’s time to stand up and live the dream – independence for all with a sense of harmony among people and planet. In this way independence becomes interdependence and we all benefit, together as a United States of America. Then we can truly lead the world.

Relating to the Independent Party of Arizona, of course we think lofty goals are unreachable at first. How many times have we seen people of vision, even just a few, achieve the impossible? Disruptors and innovators are taking the planet by storm, changing business models and interactive behaviors for the better, developing global teams to address systemic challenges. We can do the same for creating a working government that is truly by and for the people.

To an outsider, America seems pitiful in the way money and power rule. At least in the way it is happening now. Everyone seems to be aware of the fiasco and scared to do anything about it. Fear rules and the population becomes diminished in capacity. We need courageous, ethical and moral leadership that commands respect by their actions, not by their money or power. Just begin thinking what that might be like.

Now this is going to seem a little bit of a stretch for most of you. Most everyone is familiar with the ‘Law of Attraction,’ right? The eyeballs are rolling now. Okay, so there is a lot of hype around it, too, but the principles are sound – what you think and feel strongly you will attract. Consider applying that to the situation at hand. Intend that the right people doing the right things come forth and find support from the masses.

Quantum entanglement, spooky action at a distance as Einstein called it, is a real thing. Science has proven that electrons can be excited in the same way at a distance. Protons, neutrons and electrons are the building blocks of the material world. We have a mind, consciousness in embryo if you will, that science is proving is more powerful than we can imagine, yet it is our imagination that lacks power.

Mindfulness and meditation has been proven to cause a beneficial effect on populations, for some time. With just a little stretch of the imagination, these profound effects can be engaged with a larger population, like America. We often think we need to ‘do’ something and yet ‘focused thinking’ is actually doing something. This country is still a huge experiment.

Scientists at Los Alamos found out decades ago, a half-century actually, that their thoughts affect the results of their experiments.  We usually don’t think about thinking, our thoughts run rampant throughout the day. Most of us aren’t disciplined enough to pay attention to how we think, let alone what we think. What if we were?

We’re asking that you just have a moment of clarity occasionally, intending for the future to be better and the right people coming forward to help the process. This one small effort can and will have profound effects on the future. In the next few years, we will see marked changes in how people interact, what they accomplish and the ease of which it will happen because we are all anticipating it.

If you really want to be helpful, take action on the part of the party, then we need signatures to get the Independent Party on the ballot. Here’s how you can help.

Join Us Now… Thanks in advance.

Harvest Moon Effect

Perhaps the Harvest Full Moon effect…

Transformational Life Coaching is a lifestyle that continually causes me to go deep, especially in the mornings when I have my first cup of coffee. It is a time for reflection, considering the implications of my Zen Calendar quotes for the day and sharing tasty tidbits that flow from my fingertips with little effort.

So the stream of consciousness this morning has led to an interesting response I made to a post elsewhere. As I finished it became apparent (at least in my own mind) that it would be good to share here. Some questions were asked, but they seemed cursory still and I offered some food for thought. Good points were made, but I felt critical questions were still not being asked, so I offered some.

What is the depth of our evolving experience the leads us to our next evo-leap? How do we explore our own consciousness with respect to the awareness that it is such a small sliver of a much greater reality? Subjective views are many and demonstrate the effects of long-term exposure to limiting belief systems, mostly based in polarizing conditions that have been presented through the various systems throughout history.

We have little understanding of universal laws and order, yet we also acknowledge that they exist. How do we transcend our limited and limiting thinking about this greater reality of which we are only beginning to explore, let alone understand? Many attempt to offer answers yet, imho, there are questions about our nature, our design and our capabilities that go unasked.

So many experiences are nonlinear and non-local, which we have no solid foundations to understand yet. The process of time, which the intelligence we seek to understand seems to have a greater command, gives us the opportunity to distill and observe from salient moments. Some of those moments, in my experience, have led to profound engagements in realms of consciousness rarely available and to-date remain inarticulable for the most part.

No fear is elicited, yet the frequency of said moments requires the release of all attachments to the physical form. That is nearly impossible for most experiencers. I suppose once one has an NDE (for lack of a better), it becomes a little easier, but by no means without some resistance. Opportunities are offered and doors open based on a couple of things; questions (after certain specifics of purpose are conveyed) and a willingness to ascend (a sensation that occurs during the process).

Regardless of how we think about the connection, imho, it is about our relation-ships no matter the material. How we relate to our being, our knowing and our particular personal and collective growth in understanding our consciousness. How have we been able to condense into these forms that cart us around from place to place? What drives us inward for answers? What drives us to explore our outer reality in an effort to find reflections and resonance from and with those inner discoveries? Hmmm….. 😉

Happy Times – A Love Story

Luba and Zen are Getting Married!

After a 20+ years apart and coming from different sides of the earth, Luba and I finally found each other last year. We think our story is rather inspiring, even magical. Perhaps you will, too. Maybe it will give you hope that your ‘one’ is on her or his way. The joy is indescribably delicious.

A few weeks before we met I had a dream of hugging a woman and feeling like we merged into one being. There was no visual, just the sensation. I’d never experienced that before and my dreams and/or visions of folks about to enter my life have been consistent throughout my life. The sensation was so present and powerful that I returned to visit it for almost a week, until it subsided.

I asked Luba to marry me within weeks of our first meeting after spending hours and hours together with magical overtones and virtually no hiccups. Without hesitation she said YES. We deliberated for months on setting a date. I was concerned that she didn’t think I was serious, so I surprised her, on the Spring Equinox, and took her to the City Clerk’s office to get our marriage license.

The Clerk got giddy at our love story, too, as we got our marriage license.

I don’t know if you found ‘the one’ for you in this life, but the preparation and wait is so worth it. Luba (which means ‘love’ in Russian) and I met through some circuitous and magically delicious circumstances. Both of us had been working on ourselves for years, going deep within our own psyches to find balance and centeredness in our personal lives. I think that is what has to happen before ‘the one’ can show up. We have to be personally happy with life as it is, period.

Our love story, in part…

I’d met a guy at an outdoor music festival through another friend. Brent told me about this Kundalini Yoga teacher training program he was in that was kickin’ his butt, and that he was graduating in two weeks. He invited me to his graduation a week later. It was on October 28th (2016) and I felt it important to be there. I thought it might be a perfect place to meet someone, if my dream had any significance.

When I first arrived I was surprised to hear someone yell out my name with excitement. It was woman who had been part of my discussion groups whom I hadn’t seen for a while, two days older and fellow Cancer. After reviewing time apart, she felt there was someone I needed to meet and urged me to join the group that was assembling.

Little did I know that Luba was graduating from the Kundalini Yoga teacher training program, too. Sometimes people are invisible until you are supposed to see them. I hadn’t even noticed her until she walked in front of me in the back of the studio as the ceremony was about to begin. There was no eye contact and yet my heart literally did a flip inside my chest when she walked past. I knew something was up.

I didn’t linger on the event as the ceremony began and eventually the graduates were called up, one at a time, to receive a certificate, a small plaque and then given the floor to share their ‘I Am’ statements. When it was her turn, I heard her name… “Ah, Russian,” I thought, “Cool!” I watched intently as she received her certificate and gave her statements. Her accent was indeed Russian, although she spoke perfect English.

Once everyone had their moment, some closing words were said and the ceremony was over. I had to introduce myself somehow, but I felt a bit shy. I released my fear (almost 60 and still shy) and stepped up to her, not realizing that everyone else had moved toward the front of the room. We were completely alone, like the heavens had just parted.

Our first meeting was so comfortable and familiar that it was a spooky cool, even though she asked me right away if I was ‘reading’ her because my gaze was a bit intense. I don’t blink much and apologized if I seemed intense. She wasn’t offended. In fact, she was intrigued. I found out later her heart was doing flip-flops, too.

It seemed only fitting that she would be from Russia as my life has been about creating harmony among people and planet. It was so perfect that she was from a country that supposedly is our arch nemesis. As I found out more, they really are not. Americans can be so short-sighted and unaware. But I digress…

Long story short, after a month seeing each other nearly every day, I invited her to move in (with her mother and son) in December. At nearly 60 (she was 48), I knew we would be in for some intense moments as we got to know each other as only living together would provide. Would our personalities coalesce or collide? I can only say it was magical, even a bit mystical. She teases me when I get teary-eyed still. Hey, a guy can be sensitive.

The spiritual paths we had traveled were apparently parallel. Within a few days of our meeting we’d spent many hours together sharing our stories and observing each other. The similarities were uncanny, down to the postures we had when relaxing and even the near inaudible sounds we made in response to events happening around us. The list she found on characteristics and traits of ‘twin flames’ (a male and female half of a divine relationship that is ONE) and the evidence of them was a little overwhelming and yet undeniable. One can dream, right? It came true for us.

Now this isn’t anything like the ‘you complete me’ kinda thing. We were complete within ourselves. We’ve done a lot of serious internal work. That’s why I thought the Kundalini Yoga graduation might be a good place to meet someone that would vibe with me. Our relationship has allowed us to share intimate secrets of how we think and feel about life, love and creation so tender and vulnerable few ever have the opportunity to experience.

We immediately thought the Autumnal Equinox would be the perfect time, but where? Our first thought was the top of Bell Rock near Sedona, AZ. Shortly afterward an old friend recommended someone and we made the journey up, got some amazing photographs, and realized it wouldn’t work for our witnesses. We were sore for days.

Ascent Accomplished – The View from atop the famous Bell Rock!

After a few other checks into other outdoor spots in the area we returned the idea of Bell Rock, only on a lower level. It would be easier for everyone and we could wear the special clothing of our choice. So September 22 it is… right around 1 pm (time of the actual equinox). We’re so excited!

The point of all this is that we know friends and relatives, near and far, might want to share the excitement with a gift. We talked about this for a while, neither one of us being real comfortable asking for things. That is changing as we empower each other to continue to rise to the occasion in our professional lives. She as an amazing piano teacher and leader in her musical community and me as author, coach, facilitator, radio co-host, web wizard of sorts working with the small business community.

So if you feel like honoring us with your gift, no matter how small it might be (we know folks have more pressing priorities), we’d be so blessed to receive it. We are so grateful for finding each other and beginning the second phase of our lives together as ONE.

 

btw… Rush is our favorite band, so the $2112 seemed appropriate. 🙂

A repeat and opportunity to contribute await…

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Do You Have a Plan?

Interesting question, eh? What kind of plan? A life plan? A personal development plan? A business plan? For the purposes of this article, we’ll be talking about the ultimate combination of passion and purpose – a business plan. This is a bridge between worlds.

A bridge between worlds? What does that mean?

Okay, so where do your brilliant business ideas or insights begin? Someplace other than the physical world, right? Regardless of the source, something has to be done to make them real, to make them tangible in the world. A business plan forces you to write things down, put into black and white the concepts and ideas to make them real.

That is a great piece of awareness, right? How do you do it? How do you write a business plan? Most people have never written a personal life plan, so how are they supposed to write a business plan. Of course they could hire someone. Most consultants changer thousands of dollars to write business plans. Is that an option for most people? Probably not.

Still, there are pages and pages of resources available with a simple Google search. Most of them are information on the components of a plan in outline form with some brief descriptions of what you need to put in the sections. Does that help you write it? Sometimes you can find examples in sample business plans. How do you craft YOURS, though?

Well, there are many classrooms that you can get the information, most of them with a cost involved. Still, you have to take the time to redefine your schedule in most cases. Do you have that kind of time. Some make it. I taught business plan writing classes for women and minority business owners. Some of them became very successful.

Surprisingly, the classes would start with 35-40 people in them and by the 10-week class was over there would be 6-8 left. That is a very high attrition rate. Great ideas don’t often find their way into a workable plan. Sometimes life events happen and the time devotion necessary to complete a plan just isn’t available. Some choose to devote whatever time is necessary.

Now, a decade or so later, I’ve taken the classroom workbook and re-written it so it walks you through the entire process independent of a time frame. You can do it when you have time. I deliver it over 10 weeks so that you are more apt to work on each module when you get it.

There is also a set of excel financials, spreadsheets that are integrated into a fill-in-the-blank workbook. You don’t have to create the formulas that produce the numbers you’ll need for acquiring investors or loans. Everything is already done for you. Pretty cool, huh?
