Life Cycles of the Mind

There are events that occur in the mind that are considered cycles. Life events also occur in cycles. Life events are simply reflections of events that have occurred in the mind.

For example, when we conclude a relationship, such as in divorce, we have decided to end a cycle of development within our minds. We perhaps developed trust within a partnership which may preclude us to develop a sense of belonging. This relationship then advanced our mind in a direction of learning the value of taking time to be with others.

Once we’ve learned how to belong and hence now know how to make time for others, we may not need the relationship that created the circumstances for our learning. So we will end the relationship once it has served its purpose.

These are concepts one should know because it is how life cycles work. Many think of life cycles as the physical or numerical age of a person. Spiritually, life cycles are determined by the experiences one has lived through as well as their level of understanding within their mind.

There are always varying degrees of how things change. Just don’t ever expect the change to be to the level of your preference. The level of change will always be equal to the level of one’s consciousness, whatever that might be. We cannot judge how long the cycles last or at what age it should or should not be completed or begun. Cycles of learning can last for many lifetimes. People who have worked with me long enough know to ask if someone in their life will change enough to a degree of compatibility “in this lifetime!”. Yes, cycles of learning often times continue from this lifetime onto the next. For the most part….what you see is what you get as far as people are concerned. Change at the mental and spiritual levels take lifetimes before it can be expressed consistently on a physical level. You can often tell what changes has truly taken place by looking at the life events, that is the reflection of their mental learning and hence spiritual evolvement or de-evolvement- Remember that!

There is no need to judge. The level of consciousness can evolve or de-evolve. Each person decides for themselves which road to take in what they want to create for themselves. Not all souls are interested in evolving as many may assume; therein lies our skill in discerning who to let in or to keep out of our lives. If a person or situation is compatible for you, then great. If it is not compatible for you, then choose differently so the outcome can be better in your life. Drama does not need to necessarily play out negatively in your life. Simply choose differently and consider the events in your life as a reflection of your level of consciousness, good or bad.

Till the next time….

Mind – an advanced aspect of your true being

Many hold the belief that the mind is somewhat part of the brain or connected to another physical part of the human body. This is incorrect as the human brain is very physical and can be realised within the range of the five main senses. It is physical object that the eyes can see and the hand can hold.

The mind on the other hand is not physical. It cannot be seen with the eyes, measured with instruments or repaired in surgery. This entails that the brain is not the mind, but simply a part of the physical body. There is nothing within the body that can be identified as being the mind because your body and mind are different. For example, sometimes, when your body is relaxed and immobile, the mind can be very busy, darting from one thought to another.

If the mind is neither the brain nor any other part of the body, then what is it? It is a formless continuum that functions to perceive and understand objects. Because the mind is formless or non-physical by nature, it is not obstructed by physical objects, -an advanced aspect of your true being.

It is very important to be able to distinguish the disturbed states of mind from peaceful states. Only an unbalanced state of mind can disturb your inner peace. Thoughts based on anger, jealousy and desirous attachment can be labelled ‘delusions’, the principal underlying cause for much of humanity’s suffering.

You may think that your suffering is caused by other people, poor material conditions or society, but in reality, it derives from your own deluded states of mind. The essence of most Soulvana (Spiritual) practices is to reduce and eventually eradicate your delusions and replace them with permanent inner peace. This is a large aspect of human life.

An essential understanding in which you need to align with is that liberation from suffering cannot be found outside of mind and your own heart. Permanent liberation can only be realised by purifying the mind. Therefore, if you want to become free from problems and attain lasting peace and happiness, then you need to increase your knowledge and understanding of how the mind operates.

Scientific research suggests that humans are only using about 8% to 12% of their brain power; the same goes for the capacity of the mind. When we are consciously awake, we are utilising 10% of the mind. The other 90% is the subconscious mind, which is programmable similar to a computer. Many have been programmed by outside sources in ways only the subconscious intelligence can define and store, mainly from symbolic advertisements, radio, TV, society’s expectations and so on. This conditioning can build up layers of an illusory personality, causing somebody to never be themselves from heart, a catalyst for suffering and unhappiness.

You may have heard the term ‘thoughts are things’, as there are many published self-help books available centred on the subject of thought power. Remember, you are a creator being in the creator universe. Anything is possible with the right knowledge, dedication and self-belief.

Namaste!

10th Jan 2016 Connective Session: Emotion Peeling Process

2016 is going to be an important year of healing for our planet. Let’s all step into the role of a healer and start healing ourselves first. When we feel bliss, our mama earth will too be healed in some level, for we are part of this integrated system together.

Would you like to know your shadow side? Would you like to know how to integrate and cherish unwanted aspects of yourself? Would you like to follow your bliss?

In our gathering, we dived deep into our psyche, find our shadow side and Katherine gave practical advise on how to integrate it and heal ourselves to feel whole again. We used the tarot cards to find our blockages and Katherine advise us to follow our bliss in life.

We have experienced shifts of frequencies thereby shifting our thoughts and energy patterns through our session. Katherine worked to remove deep core emotional blockages in everyone through the support from our Universe. Kath is humbled and honoured of this gift.

Emotional healing is never linear but is likened to peeling an onion.

In the healing process, Katherine guided on what the tarot card is showing us. From the most basic level, we worked deep into our psyche to find our shadow side and what are our blockages and then worked on each consciousness level. This is a process Katherine termed as “Emotion Peeling” Process. Every layers of peeling is similar to “emotion surgery and applying of medication on your emotional wounds”. Kath guarantees that everyone can be healed and will recover back with Love , Joy and Peace. The only catch is We Must Allow the healing to take place.

We started the session with “THE DISSOLVING SHADOWS MEDITATION”

“Why would you want to do this”
Because the Shadow Feminine represents all those parts of ourselves that we hide away because we don’t feel good enough, shameful, ugly etc. But she is persistent and she doesn’t like being suppressed, so she will show up in your life as the Saboteur, the Crazy Maker or the Drama Queen.
When we meet with the Shadow Feminine she provides us with an opportunity to dig beneath the surface, find our beauty, our strengths and our gifts; and in doing so we set ourselves free from being afraid of our shadow.
Meeting and embracing the Shadow Feminine is one gorgeous stepping in reclaiming and owning our Personal Power!

The shadow’s only purpose is to define who and what you are by being what you are not. That is its only purpose. Once that purpose has been fulfilled and you feel your soul again then the shadow can and must dissolve.

You must now live your True Self. The perfect Soul.

Shadows are not you. They are not who you are.
You are Light, You are Peace , Love, Joy, Goodness and this Soul. You are true and honest Light of God, This is what you are in your everyday life. You must honestly be true to yourSelf. Never sublimate, hide from or deny these shadows again always. Look at them honestly and dissolve them immediately.

Trust that all of you have a meaningful and nourishing time together with Kath again.

Namaste! Om !

With Love & Hugs.

19th Dec 2015 Connective Session: Shadow Attributes

Its great to catch up with all of you again after 3.5months break.

We had the chance to discuss on the subject ” Shadow Attributes” or what the common folks called “Inner Darkness”.

Facing and embracing your inner darkness has nothing to do with becoming evil. It is also not an impossible task that will overwhelm and destroy you. It’s looking at all you, and only you can embrace all of you. One of the biggest problems many of us face come from running from our inner darkness. Some people go to great lengths to do all kinds of good deeds to try to erase, counterbalance, or avoid their darkness, but wherever you go, there it is. When unconfronted, the darkness thrives. It exists precisely because we don’t look at it. That is the nature of the dark. It is the absence of the light. Just start to turn and look at it, and already it is evaporating.

In psychology, the dark side of human nature is often described as the alter ego, the id, or the lower self. The great Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung called it the “shadow.” By shadow, he meant the negative side of the personality, the sum total of all those unpleasant qualities that we would prefer to hide.

Kath leveraged on Ghetto Tarot (a photographic interpretation deck) to guide us to interpreting our shadows. We then went on to understanding our shadows and how to dissolve these shadows through the guidance of the tarot.

By knowing our shadows, we created awareness of it. Then we should acknowledged and faced it courageously.

5 Tips For Facing Your Shadows

  1. Get an outside perspective. Many people are so mired in their beliefs that they have no perspective about themselves or how they influence other people. This is good time to ask for outside perspectives from friends and family. You will also have to learn how to listen to criticism, which is always a worthwhile spiritual practice.
  2. Journal. Now, that you have some more perspective, it’s time to sit down and consider what people are telling you about how you act and how you treat others. Why do you act that way? Why do you treat others the way you do? These are some starter questions to get you going.
  3. Be vulnerable. There’s no comfortable way to be uncomfortable, and a lot of those painful feelings are going to make you feel intensely vulnerable. Lean into this discomfort and see what you find.
  4. Keep breathing. Especially when some old pain and trauma starts surfacing, it’s easy to let the ego-self convince us that we’re being overwhelmed and can’t handle it. Keep breathing. Focus even more on your breathing the more intense the emotion coming up. Emotions are always in motion, so they will pass, possibly making space for a new self discovery.
  5. Find help. If you really are struggling, this is why spiritual healers, therapists, psychologist, psychiatrists, and spiritual teachers exist. Asking for help can be a really important step in facing things that feel too frightening to look at on your own.

In our future sessions, we will continue to listen deeply to our souls so that we start setting goals in total alignment with what our SOUL is craving for.

We will continue to discuss topics that will nourished our limited time on earth. Am sure all of you will emerged everyday as more innovative and successful CREATOR of your life.

Namaste.

With Love & Hugs.

06th Sept 2015 Connective Session: Self-Awakening

Thanks for your time with Kath on the 06th Sept 2015 . I am humbled. Thanks Universe and all angels for supporting our learning.

Kath shared so many stuffs. However, the highlights are:

1) Awakening Series – Auto Correction Mechanism 1: “You can have anything you want as long as you don’t need it.”

Need is a fear based energy and anything that comes from need is actually rooted in a sense of lack within you. You cannot—with true satisfaction—manifest what you love when you are in need, or therefore, in the lack of the very thing you desire. When you remember that, you’ll allow things to come to you rather than chase things.

Important minor detail: when you are in need of something, or driving a desire out of fear, it’s not that it won’t manifest because it will, but you will still feel a sense of lack or need, or insecurity of now losing what’s been manifested. You would have experienced this somewhat like when you set out on a goal and you complete it and think to yourself, “is that it?”
The problem: Needing something that you would otherwise love out of fear or lack.

The solution: Rather than focusing on what you desire when you feel a need for something, focus on all the things you do have in your life right now, feel abundant in that, and give space to your desire until the need drops away.

Sometimes you have to be patient, but when the need melts away by focusing on what you already have, you will realize you’re more abundant than you thought, and you can re-connect with what you originally desired out of a pure love rather than need.

2) Awakening Series – Auto Correction Mechanism 2: “You want something in life, ask for it — but from within your heart first.”

It’s not as important to ask another for what you desire as it is to connect with the feeling of love that you have for something. If you are in your heart, then you’re in an open energy, which is the energy of receiving. It’s when you’re open that you attract more possibilities in your life.

And actually, you don’t really “attract” more possibilities! You merely realize that those possibilities have always and will always be there, when you’re open because openness is love and love is infinite.

The problem: Asking for something that you may, or may not, deserve will get you results ONLY sometimes.

The solution: “Don’t look for why you don’t have, look for why you deserve to have.”
If you can focus on the feeling of why you love something with your whole heart, you will feel as though you already have it. When you are one with something, it’s yours. First feel it in your heart, then be patient as you realize you deserve it the more you connect with the feeling of love for it.
NOTE: You don’t need to believe in yourself, or become a deserving person; the way you deserve something is by loving it completely.

The truth is that it’s impossible for you not to have what you truly love. Love is an infinite energy; and it’s your natural state of being.

The next part of our gathering, Kath also shared her thoughts on some questions on spirituality and the so many “Whys.” queried from the participants.

Pondering Questions:

  • What is the purpose of spiritual enlightnment?
  • What is the purpose of leaving the Source and going back to the Source?
  • What happens after we attain enlightenment?

Well, Katherine does not have any “right” answers or a matter of fact, there isn’t any right answers but more of what’s connected to individual souls, nonetheless, she shared her thoughts and ideas.

For Katherine, she choose to live life SIMPLY. Just Breath and that’s IT. Life as IT IS. I am IT. IT is IT. IT is I AM. I AM is I AM. PERIOD.
 
Unknown
Orange Squeeze Experience

Finally, we ended with our ORANGE SQUEEZE and Juice FEAST.
When you squeeze an orange, you get orange juice because that’s what inside. When someone puts the pressure on you and out of you comes anything other than love, it’s because that’s what you’ve allowed to be inside. Once you take away all those negative things you don’t want in your life and replace then with love, you’ll find yourself living a highly functioning life.

For the next 3 months, Katherine will be out for explorative travels.

We shall meet again on December 2015.

Namaste!

May 13th 2014 Connective Session: Searching for Twin flame

Your soul is consciousness or thought frequency – a light or a soul spark of light. Physical reality is made of electromagnetic energy which has poles (north/south), polarity, duality, opposites, male/female, yin/yang.

When your soul enters the physical, it divides in half – male and female – above and below – experiencing together simultaneously. Encoded in every soul’s DNA is the need to reunite with that twin aspect, or to seek that energy out through a physical soulmate. The need to reconnect keeps us linked to the other side and a knowing that Oneness awaits. Reunion comes through balance.

This session, we dedicated our time to discuss the search of our twin flame. We have completed the “candle-blue flame” ritual. In this ritual, we have got a clearer idea of twin flame energy and more learning is required for this important life lesson.

Some of the signs of a Twin Flame includes but not limited to the following:

  •  Instant Bond

If you have met your Twin Soul, the bond is immediate.This meeting is often marked by the feeling of finding the one you’ve been looking for, before a word has been exchanged. You instantly find yourself comfortable with this person, as if you already know them.

  • Unpredictable Separation

You can say or do no wrong when you are in the loving phase, but approaching the separation phase, the smallest thing can blow everything up and separate you for years. A little spat may end up causing a massive rift between you, and it maybe something you’d never fight over with anyone else. You’ll be forgiven for anything (given time) and no normal relationship rules apply.

  • All emotions are heightened and exaggerated

Both negative and positive emotions towards your Twin Soul are exaggerated compared to a normal relationship. When it stings, it stings good – and when it’s good it is amazing. Twin Soul relationships may be very turbulent, your only chance of harmony is to clear as much emotional baggage as possible.

  • Meeting young – separating – reuniting

Usually Twin Soul pairs meet quite young, in twenties or younger, and meet up again after living and learning a bit. Perhaps even happily ever after? Maybe.

  • Recurring numbers

You may be ‘haunted’ by certain numbers, they could be anything that mean something to you, but usually a repeated pair of numbers, most often 11:11 but may not be that. Usually they appear on a clock, but can appear anywhere. There may also be number triplets, in this case most often 111. Also pay attention to repeated dates.

See all of you in our next session. 

With Love & Light,

May 1st 2014 Connective Session: Looking For Space Within

Looking for space in our life, fills up the space in our life. It exhausts us and makes us feel more and more frantic, and takes us further from help. Let the spaciousness of life find us. It is always here, which is precisely where we are.  

~~~From The Shimmering World by Steven Harrison

These words give me pause for reflection each time I read them. They are an inspiring guide to living life. When we are confused or feel lost, then sit down and relax. Find your Middle Ground. Knowing that help is here in the space we are already in…..

Today session, we are working on a mental exercise – Looking For Space Within

This mental exercise is to helps train the mind to become aware of the space we are already in rather than the object that fill it or making us look outside of us.

When you look in any direction, try to make yourself aware of the spaces between the objects, rather than the objects themselves, as though what you were seeing was a picture on paper and you were able to use scissors to cut out the objects themselves, leaving only spaces between them. This exercise can expand the perceptions and help you to escape from preoccupations with the material world.

As you slowly open your eyes, imagine the sunrise coming out of your eyes and shining light on to a new day.

See all of you in our next session. 

With Love & Light,

Katherine Goh

April 18 2014 Connective Session: Values

Our Connective Question: Write down ten people you admire and why you admire them, the qualities that give them value in your eyes. Try to recognize that quality in yourself

Last connective session, we invest our time to connect with what are the qualities we admire. Do we have the qualities? Many of the qualities we admire are literally free. Some of the common ones by the group are …

  • Wisdom
  • Functionality
  • Strategic
  • Smartness
  • Creativity
  • Frankness
  • Decisiveness
  • Loving-Kindness
  • Strong connectivity with others…

I am fascinated by values. Values we all hold dear to us. Make a list of the twenty things you value most in life. How many of these are free? Did your list include yourself? 

I see that most people forgot to value themselves. If you do not value yourself, then how do you even value other things? Think !

If we were to prioritize our top three values what would yours be? Do you hold these values but not live them? Try to sit down with pen and paper. Write down your top three values in your life. Do your values show up in your real life? 

How long will it take you? For some of us, we can jot it down quickly, but some of us are very frustrated by this exercise. Ask yourself why it was easy or hard. That is where I want your heart right now.

Why is it important to look at our values?

Let me give an example here of values and what we think of others or how we judge.

Lets say you are in line at a up-end supermarket. You see in front of you a woman with a child, a young child. This woman is dressed in very fine clothes. The child is dressed very nice. The woman puts her food down on the grocery counter. You notice she has nice steaks, lobster, fruits, vegetables, and candy and donuts. She looks up at the cashier and pays him with aided support vouchers.

How do we judge or put value judgements on this woman at the grocery counter? Maybe you thought it was good that she had some quality food such as steak and lobster, or you felt pangs of envy that she could afford them, or you judged her for buying such food.

What did you think or value on the she and the child wore as you noticed they were on welfare? This is where I want your mind to go. What do you really think of this scenario.

I hope this post can help you look at yourself and the people who you deal with in your life and ask yourself if you are judging a book by its cover. “To err is human” But to look within is Wise”

See all of you in our next session. 

With Love & Light,

Katherine Goh
