Unity Consciousness

Unity consciousness comes after understanding the nature of oneness.

It comes after making the small (or huge!) and necessary adjustments to our inner perspective, in order to begin to witness our unconscious beliefs in duality, and rise above them.

It comes after doing this consistently, recognizing the illusion in waking and sleeping life.

Unity consciousness expands this knowing into feeling, and experiences of oneness, in ways that would currently be deemed unbelievable! It is when our single, localized point of perspective ceases to exist and we can experience life from the perspective of another, as limitations of time and place are no longer there.

But unity consciousness does mean continuing to exist here, on Earth. I think some people envisage ‘ascending’ into Unity Consciousness as us somehow leaving this planet, but I believe we will all bring this level of existence here.

So it has to begin here, within each one of us

In order to explain further, here is one of the best illustrations that I have come across, from the ‘A Speaks’ series:

Everything that you think is real, right from the stars in the sky to your very own body, is all made up of atoms.  This you probably know. You probably also know that these atoms are made up of subatomic particles.  But what you might not have known is that sub-atomic particles are not really particles.  Not in the way you might imagine a particles to be. They are not very small little balls or building blocks.  No, they are, actually nothing more than patterns in the background energy.  You can imagine, if you like that there is a sea of infinite energy and in that sea, a little eddy forms.  The pattern of that eddy becomes stable and does not simply fade away when it interacts with another eddy that has a complementary pattern.  And so the two patterns dance together for a while.  And there you are with your finest scientific equipment, and you look at this dance and instead of seeing a romance between two patterns of energy, you think you are looking at a particle – perhaps a proton – inside an atom.  But I hope you have noticed the important part of this tale.  This was the fact that those particles – in fact all particles in the whole universe – are all composed of patterns in the same one infinite, universal energy field.  You see: ONE energy field makes up everything in your whole universe.  This means that EVERYTHING that you think is real is actually just patterns and variations in the same one energy”.
It is at the macro and the micro levels – at the infinitely large, and the infinitely small places that this truth of oneness is starting to become visible, as this is where the illusion of duality and separation is breaking down.  Incredibly, we are living through the moments on Earth, when this is now being realized by science, through the study of Birkeland currents (at the macro scale), and through quantum theory (at the micro scale).

In the ordinary scale and activity of everyday life, our state of oneness with infinite consciousness seems largely invisible, instead replaced by separation.  But still, we are each made up of a few ripples in that singular blanket of energy, so our feelings, thoughts and actions continue to create patterns, which affect the whole, whether or not we are aware.

Beginning to get a grasp of the concept of  infinite consciousness, and the origin of creation is one thing, and it does take time and adjustment.  But unity consciousness exists a few steps further on.

Namaste.

What is Higher Consciousness and How we can access it?

Compassion is the signature of Higher Consciousness. Non-violence is the tool to evolve into the Higher Consciousness.
Amit Ray

When we speak of higher consciousness, what we are referring to is the activation of the part of our brain which we typically do not access, at least not for lengthy periods of time. As human beings, we spend most of our lives functioning in states of lower consciousness, where what we are principally concerned with is ourselves, our survival and our own success, narrowly defined.

When you operate from your higher consciousness you are working from outside of lower consciousness, also referred to as the ‘ego’. When we function from the ego, we tend to be more self involved and self focused as individuals. When we are working out of higher consciousness, we access the parts of our brain that make us more self aware, less selfish, and we display more empathy, compassion and kindness. We act from love rather than from fear.

Higher consciousness is a huge triumph over the primitive mind which cannot envisage any such possibilities. Ideally, we would be a little more alive to the advantages of this higher mind and strive to make our oceanic experiences somewhat less random and less clothed in unnecessary mystery.

In a fast paced world which can appear to be driven by ego and fueled by technology, fame, material possessions and status; moments accessing the higher consciousness within us is necessary for balance both individually and collectively.

It is within this type of introspection that we gain insights into ourselves and indeed others that would perhaps have gone long unnoticed. When we actively seek to understand ourselves in this way, we are open to see the thoughts and belief systems that we have running in the background of our minds, which are allowing decisions and choices to be made unconsciously that perhaps don’t serve us.

How can we access Higher Consciousness?

There are two very clear ways to access your higher consciousness- intention and stillness (Meditation).

By setting the intention to access your this part of your brain, you are immediately creating the space for it to happen. Once you have the space and the intention, next you need stillness (Meditation). In the beginning stages of this practice you do not need to sit for hours in meditation, you could try for 5 minutes at a time. Simply sit, breathe deeply and hold that intention of opening up a dialogue with your higher consciousness. Pay attention to what you see in your minds eye. Do not attempt to label anything, just be.

If you practice every day, you will start to notice that your access to your higher consciousness will sharpen more and more. Your instincts will become sharper, you may start to feel happier and more clear in your mind, you may even start to notice that your intuition around certain things is stronger than it was.

All of these things point to an open awareness and a genuine connection to your higher consciousness. A pretty great skill to have don’t you think?

So, Try it today!

Namaste!

Samadhi

What is Samadhi? Samadhi is derived from the Sanskrit, meaning “together,” and dhi, meaning “mind.” Its most basic definition implies a complete state of concentration. Simply stated, samadhi is the mind’s ultimate state of being; it is enlightenment and the preliminary state to nirvana. A perfect union of the individualized soul with infinite spirit. A state of oneness; complete absorption.

Many a times, samadhis or exotic experiences of consciousness are equated with Self realization. Self realization for sure is not some samadhi as we typically understand it, nor some super exotic state of consciousness. Self realisation is simply being aware of awareness or abiding as awareness on effortless basis. This awareness is not created at the time of awakening but gets acknowledged concurrent with destruction of ego. The ‘oh‘ or ‘wow‘ after Self realization is wondering for missing this simple awareness, which while always present, never gets acknowledged during life with ego.

Self realization is often thought of as exalted state of samadhi, needing intense practise of meditations.
Constant discipline and daily meditation practice help each of us to rise up and break the old patterns and habits. While we might not attain samadhi in this lifetime, we are certainly better off and more evolved as humans when we practice meditation.

Finally, as you grow, remember to treat yourself with compassion, love, understanding, and forgiveness. You will fail, fall back into your old patterns, and forget what you’ve learned—that is inevitable. Always remember your own divinity. Remember that you are filled with absolute love and nothing less. And most of all, remember that’s it’s a journey and not a destination.

Namaste Om.

Rebirthing Meditation

The subconscious is the “storehouse of misery”. The reason we suffer and we cannot get out of old habits of negativity is that the subconscious is overloaded. Rebirthing meditations help unclog the subconscious so that your “home within yourself” will shine and be purified. “A stinking subconscious blocks every happiness in life. If your subconscious is totally cleared and clean you’ll be a lot happier and more effective than you are today”. One of the meditation that helps to clear our negativity in our subconscious is the Mountain Meditation. By picturing in your mind’s eye as best you can the most beautiful mountain that you know or have seen or can imagine. Just holding the image and feeling of this mountain in your mind’s eye, letting it gradually come into greater focus. 

By becoming the mountain in our meditation practice, we can link up with its strength and stability and adopt it for our own. We can use its energies to support our energy to encounter each moment with mindfulness and equanimity and clarity. It may help us to see that our thoughts and feelings, our preoccupations, our emotional storms and crises, even the things that happen to us, are very much like the weather on the mountain. We tend to take it all personally but its strongest characteristic is impersonal. The weather of our own lives is not to be ignored or denied. It is to be encountered, honoured, felt, known for what it is and held in awareness. And in holding it in this way, we come to know a deeper silence, and stillness, and wisdom. Mountains have this to teach us and much more if we can come to listen.

Incorporating lovingkindness meditation as part of the rebirthing meditation supports our awareness practices too. Lovingkindness meditation also helps to align and heal us mentally, physically and emotionally.  

So the next time you do rebirthing meditation which is mainly breath works, try incorporating Mountain and Lovingkindness meditation into it and notice how the effects are benefiting you.

Till the next time.

The Fool’s Journey

If you are familiar to using Tarot Cards, you will notice most of the tarot deck has the Fool as the beginning card, the starting of the journey through life. The Fool’s Journey is a metaphor for the journey through our life.

We begin with the Fool (0), a card of beginnings. The Fool stands for each of us as we begin our journey of life. We are a fool because only a simple soul has the innocent faith to undertake such a journey with all its hazards and pain.
At the start of our trip, the Fool is a newborn – fresh, open and spontaneous.

You will see that in the Fool Card, the man has his arms flung wide, and his head held high. He is ready to embrace whatever comes his way, but he is also oblivious to the cliff edge he is about to cross. The Fool is unaware of the hardships he will face as he ventures out to learn the lessons of the world. Isn’t this familiar in our life?

The Fool stands somewhat outside the rest of the major arcana. Zero is an unusual number. It rests in the exact middle of the number system – poised between the positive and negative. At birth, the Fool is set in the middle of his own individual universe. He is strangely empty (as is zero), but imbued with a desire to go forth and learn. This undertaking would seem to be folly, but is it?

It is important that we realize that we are the Fool and the Journey of the Fool is our own adventure through the magical realm of archetypal energies. The Fool an everyman character,is how we begin and how we end, from our childish wobbles and gibberish to our drooling dotage.

“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.” – Touchstone in ‘As You Like It’

Namaste!

Rebirth is a journey of awakening

Our memory is not only the home of our life story. It holds a key to the essence of who we are.

The wholeness of our souls continually beckons us through disturbing feelings and events to awaken to the unmet potentials within us – as maturing individuals, as a rapidly changing culture and as an evolving human species.

As we search for meaning in our lives and for the means to allay suffering, these core questions – Who am i ? Why am i here? usually come up. The heart of all rebirth work is to awaken consciousness so that you can experience the answers to these questions by remembering how you were created.

Our living on Earth can therefore be described as a training camp to regain personality traits like unconditional love, self honesty, happiness, modesty and humbleness. Family, friends, acquaintances and “coincidental” encounters are our training partners for the souls on their way back to the divine origin.

The essence of our discussion on Rebirth is to recognize the motivation of our souls for reincarnation (rebirth) and to hopefully draw conclusions for the personal life (being the current incarnation).

 

Channelling: Voices from Within

Channeling is a powerful means of spiritual unfoldment and conscious transformation. As you channel you build a bridge to the higher realms — a loving, caring, purposeful collective higher consciousness, the All-that-Is, or the Universal Mind…. Channeling involves consciously shifting your mind and mental space in order to achieve an expanded state of consciousness.

To achieve this expanded state of consciousness, channelers usually meditate, trying to break free of worldly influences and tune in to a higher consciousness. They may imagine themselves seeking out specific spirits of the dead, or they may be contacted, apparently unbidden, by some unknown force that wishes to communicate.

With these myriad spiritual energies surrounding us all the time, it is of greatest benefit to hear the lessons they are offering us which will aid and ease our human experience.

Some channelers have been proven frauds who pretend to contact the dead for fame or fortune, though most people who channel sincerely believe that some unseen spirit uses their bodies as a vessel to dispense truth and wisdom. In the end, there is nothing pathological about channeling, but nor is it an unexplained conduit to another dimension.

Till the next time

Contracts

When you incarnate into your human life experience your SOUL has made the decision to choose a life where certain contracts are played out, these show up in your life experience as relationships and situations. There are various roles that the SOUL plays, you play a role for all who are in your life experience at the moment, whether that be a role of brother, sister, wife, mother etc, it is but a role. These roles were agreed upon at SOUL level and then “forgotten” on incarnation. The usual life experience for a human is to work through the contracts and karma during their time here on planet earth.

When a soul leaves one embodiments, one incarnation, and is in the spirit world, it goes through a period of rest and then before coming into a new incarnation, will decide what experiences and souls to meet in the coming incarnation. This very much depends on their performances during their previous incarnations. Because what happens is that every thought, word and action that they put forward is an energy which goes outwards to the universe and in a circular form it eventually returns back to them. 

Now, if its a strong charge this energy has a long term implications and it might take a long time to return. If it doesn’t have so much strength, then the experience brings a more immediate response. So whatever we are sending out eventually will come back to us. 

In simple terms, if we’re sending out a balanced energy then this increases the reservoirs of our Light. In addition, this energy will return back to us and in a form of – what we could call – a good luck, or a good fortune. But if the energy we are sending out is imbalanced, that eventually will also come back to us and it comes with the experience of suffering, of pain or misfortune. How the soul/ the individual will receive the return of good karma and the return of negative karma is based on the Law of Cause and Effect – The Law of Circle.

So, we decide and we get into agreement with other souls / individuals, as to what their role would be in their connection with us, for us to be able to fulfil that obligation. However, we also create contracts that we sign with our own self.

Now when we come in embodiment, we have lessons to learn. Through that embodiment, there is a conscious but most of the time a subconscious choice of the lessons we wish to learn which are included in the original pre-birth (Sacred) contract. If at some point in our life we become aware of this “contract” we have the permission to consciously decide that we do not want this contract anymore. As per the law of free choices and free will, we can cancel it and we can rewrite a new one.  Now, in my understanding, what happens in this situation, we either postpone what needs to be learned because at the moment we feel you can’t handle it, or we don’t want to handle it. Alternatively we have gained clarity as to what we have learned through the lesson of this specific contract we have signed and we are still in it because mainly of habit ( a training hologram).

Will leave the training hologram in my future blog.

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!

Drop into the heart

Drop from your head to your heart. Immediately distractions will diminish and you’ll sense the spaciousness and peace of your Buddha nature. Just drop your awareness, your center of gravity. Don’t think about it. We can do all our meditations from this vantage point and it makes them a lot better.

The field of the heart provides us with direct access to our inner voice, inner wisdom and inner chamber of limitless potential along with creating a connection with universal consciousness. There are no limitations when accessing the field of the heart and similarly, there are no limitations to the infinite methods of noticing, listening, and speaking from the field of the heart.

When your attention takes you to a particular space or place within an individual’s field, you are not just interacting with that space or place. You are interacting with information. Everything in the universe is light, information, and resonance. When you observe a particular space or place, you create resonance with that information. It is the very act of observing information that provides the vehicle for transformation to occur.

The field of the heart is a torsion field. It looks like a doughnut comprised of two counter-rotating fields, with the inner torsion spinning in one direction and the outer torsion spinning in the opposite direction. Within these torsion fields, there is a vortex. Within the vortex, information couples with the torsion fields. This creates a certain amount of both inertia and momentum simultaneously, which helps the information pop through the vacuum as form, action and experience. In-form-ation as possibility creates experience directly from the field of the heart. Your thoughts creates your reality.

The torsion field (energetic grids)  of the heart is the very first thing that forms, even before the physical heart comes into manifestation, and everything emanates from that state of pure torsion. When you access the field of the heart, you access pure potentiality before that potentiality separates out from itself as experience.

The reason we drop down into the field of the heart is that it allows us to access that state of pure potentiality or neutrality. From the field of the heart we can access pure, undifferentiated states of information and energy potential before the information separates out as form, action or experience. The heart field is the gateway to the all that is and the all that is yet to be experienced.

When you drop down into the field of the heart, you don’t really feel, notice, or think anything related to that experience because it’s not experience yet. It’s just pure potentiality. Everything that we do in Matrix Energetics / energetic grids, we do from this pure potentiality and neutrality that is the field of the heart. From the field of the heart we have the access that allows transformation to occur because we are actually going back to before the collapse of the wave function.

Here is a 5:37′ guided meditation i found in youtube which i find it useful to kickstart a “Heart Drop Meditation” for beginners. Try it.

Namaste!

09th April 2016 Connective Session: Imprinting into your consciousness and unconsciounesss

Change Your Frequency To Change Your Reality!
Re-imprint / Re-program your limiting beliefs and habits To Change Your Reality 
We change our limited beliefs and our habits, we will change our lives.
An imprint is a significant experience or period of life from the past in which a person formed a belief or cluster of beliefs, often in relationship to one’s identity. An imprint experience also often involves the unconscious role-modeling of significant others. The purpose of reimprinting is to find the resources necessary to change the beliefs and update the role-models that were formed (not simply to resolve the emotional issues associated with a particular event, as in the NLP technique of change personal history).
In order to be a new person, you must first think like the new person you want to be.

The conscious mind is where thoughts are generated. It is the one you use to think, make decisions and give orders to the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind implements what the conscious mind says without questioning. Here is where you hold all your beliefs (including limited beliefs) and habits (what you do every day). Our beliefs and habits control our everyday life.  The good news is if we change our limited beliefs and our habits, we will change our lives, so that means we need to change or reprogram our subconscious mind. 

The subconscious mind learns through repetition and affirmations. By repetition we have formed our beliefs and habits and we can implant new ones the same way. If we want to change our life by implanting new beliefs and habits, the first step we need to do is to know exactly what we really have, do and be. When we know that we will realize what beliefs and habits we need to change or replace and attract what we REALLY want and always desired. 
It is important to know that the brain is formed by four phases: Beta and Alpha in the conscious mind and Theta and Delta in the subconscious mind. When we are fully awake, we are in the Beta. When we start to fall asleep we are in the Alpha. When we are sleeping we are in the Theta phase and when we are deeply asleep we reach the Delta state. According to Sigmund Fred, we can access the subconscious mind when the brain is in Theta state, so we can easily imprint new beliefs or habits when we are in the Theta state. 

Namaste!

31st Jan 2016 Connective Session: Stillness

Am grateful for your time with Katherine in our last gathering. We gathered together “peeking” into our consciousness and had realisation of certain thoughts that we wouldn’t even aware before though these thoughts may be with us all along.

Even at the tiniest level, Quantum Mechanics has discovered that atoms and sub-atoms are in fact composed of packets of energy. Now, leading research on human consciousness is showing that this energy vibrates on a Scale of Consciousness.

The Scale of Consciousness was first illustrated by Dr. David Hawkins in his book “Power vs. Force”. He showed that consciousness, and therefore each human emotion has a vibration in the exact same way that matter does. 

Heavy emotions like Fear, Anger or Shame vibrate at low frequencies. But feelings like Love, Joy and Peace vibrate at high, uplifting frequencies

Before we “tuned” into the frequency our consciousness vibration, Katherine asked a question.

Katherine: Questions to Ponder – If you are allocated a frequency number for yourself, what do you feel your number will be? Say choose from 0-9? And Why ?

Katherine then integrate your connective answers with the Words/ Quote from Universe shared in the session:

“When you are still, you are who you were before you temporarily assumed this physical and mental form called a person.”

Each of you was then asked to share about your feelings and connection with the sentence. Then Katherine integrate connectively into your consciousness by aligning your number frequency with your connectivity to the words from the Universe’s quote. After which, Kath shared about “thoughts” you may or may not be be aware of.

In our discussion, Kath shared about Stillness several times.

Stillnss acts as a gateway to the spiritual, a gateway of three successive forms of stillness.

The first, stillness of the body-heart-mind, develops in meditation when we sit quietly long enough.

The second is the stillness of awareness, stillness of consciousness which differs from stillness of the body-heart-mind.

Finally, the third is the stillness of the stillness of will, means letting go of our attachments and intentions, desires of all kinds, even the desire to be in a state of stillness.

Towards the last part of our gathering, we had done the “Frequency Cone Tarot readings”using our tarot deck to confirm what is the current most important “work” we have to do so that we can be closer or more aligned with our Stillness or High Consciousness , Or Source or God….all descriptions to Katherine means the same.

Kath also shared that the higher your frequency number, the higher the vibrations, which of course is good.

With Love & Blessings

02nd Nov 2014 Connective Session: Twin Flames Love

Waking Times

If we are thinking, dreaming or hoping to find our True Love, ‘Soul Mate’ or TwinSoul, or if we believe that we found our ‘perfect’ relationship, we may be in for an ego surprise…. Relationships can be based on True Love or on Ego, on higher or lower consciousness level; on Freedom or on Karma; on purpose or on pragmatism, but perfect relationships don’t exist.

You could meet him or her, your Other Half, your Divine Counterpart, your ultimate mirror. Only your heart can tell. And the heart is ecstatic, just like True Love. Twin Flame love is the highest possible form of love and it provides you with all the tools for your personal development. It is a kind of love that is both unsettling and all-embracing at the same time. Conflicting isn’t it?

After meeting your Twin you can feel hopelessly lonely and not being understood at all. Everything regarding ‘normal’ love you believed in is suddenly overthrown. Love as you knew it from romantic movies and books needs new insights. You cannot associate yourself with that love any longer, and you are no longer able to move on as an individual. You and your Twin are One: a unity, two flames of the fire of life. You are so close, you are One. Forever the perfect ‘double strength’ of life. You have been ‘renewed’, for every single minute to come, forever. And this is hard, to say the least.

You are expected to learn to love unconditionally. Unconditional love is the kind of love you experience when you have children. The secret to loving unconditionally is to ignore the ‘if’: you say ‘I love you.’, instead of ‘I love you, if.. you do this or that’. Twin Flame love goes beyond that, because pure love gives without expecting anything in return.

We are right in the middle of the Age of Aquarius. In every NOW new meetings and recognitions emerge from the Light and Love. To create love, to expand love. When you experience the truth of your heart, it is beyond doubt that you are half of a Twin Flame couple or that you may meet him or her, that another person exists with you, every single heartbeat. It is written in your heart, and it exists deeply within your being, far away from any words or concepts.

Twin Flames are the light workers in the rhythm at the High Heart level. They are united to make the cosmic energy dance once again, and they burn within the hearts of mankind. Know that reunion will occur. 

Are you having doubts of your own? Ask your heart, and listen. Silence your mind, and feel your heart presenting you with the answer. When you are making up answers, thinking them, you are not in the right place. When you feel the answers, you are.

During your journey towards your Twin Flame/kindred soul, you may get lost in doubt. However, your ‘spirit guides’ always present to confirm again and again that you are on the right track, that you are not crazy. You may experience situations that cannot simply be coincidental.  

Twin Flames are rising, whirling and pulsating symbolisms of life.

In the beginning, we had a perfect connection and were perfectly attuned to each other. And slowly yet steadily we are returning to this wonderful state of unity.

Till our next session,

Katherine Goh

June 28th 2014 Connective Session: Half Yearly Review

By doing half yearly review, I find that it helps me take stock of what went well and why, and what I need to work on.

I like to think that if I’m 6 months into the year, then technically I should be a half of the way through my goals.

Well, I know it’s not that simple or straightforward but it helps to have something to aim towards. 

We are nearly half-way through the year and my question to you is this – are you on track with your goals?

Over the last six months we have dropped a goal, missed some and just reached others. I enjoy the half yearly goals check up. I see it as a time to review, refocus and restart. Sometimes we have dwelled too much on what we haven’t achieved and not recognised appropriately or celebrated our successes. This is a chance to reward ourselves if our goals are accomplished. 

Reviews my 2014 goals are: 

  1. Me – I am less rushed and more peaceful. Investing time to increase my knowledge on dharma.
  2. Family  –  I spend more time chatting with mum to know her thoughts and emotions. Quality conversations.
  3. Relationship – We have more time together on our own and support each others interests. We spend more QUALITY time doing things together, such as DIY crafts and leave our car at home and do the walks to the supermarket or the evening walks in the park.
  4. Work –Need to improved on this area!
  5. House – Middle of the renovation and should be ready for new house warming by November this year.
  6. Family Planning – Need to improved on this area!
  7. Financial Planning/Investment – On track and need to find new resources and networks. 

Why It’s So Important to Have Time to Think about our status of our yearly goals (and How to Find It)?

Take the time each and every day to recharge and think.

You can’t think of big pictures without actually having the time and the space to step back. You need to do this without clients calling you every three seconds, without the to-do lists that weigh heavy on your shoulders, and if you can afford it, a retreat might actually be the best way to do it.

I couldn’t afford a retreat this year in time, but I found a few other ways to disconnect from everything and take the time to think about the overall scope of my business and my career. Here are a few:

  1. Go for a daily run.
  2. Take an hour before bed to think about your goals
  3. Travel
  4. Meditate & Tarot Guidance

How are you going with your goals for 2014?

Till our next class.

 

May 31st 2014 Connective Session: Searching for a Meaning

Life is not primarily a quest for pleasure or a quest for power but a quest for meaning.

The greatest task for any person is to find meaning in his or her life.  Some saw three possible sources for meaning:
a] in work (doing something significant)
b] in love (caring for another person)
c] and in courage during difficult times.

This class we uses tarot spread to guide us or the least to give us some tips about our leaming to life. Through tarot readings, we can dig deeper into our subconscious and investigate what give us meaning in this lifetime.

What is Money meant to me?

Katherine requested the participants to answer the following question:

If someone gave you a million dollars right now, what you would do with it?

Using a Yes/No spread to confirm what you written is genuine.

Tarot Reading Definition

Major Arcana Yes
Minor Arcana No

Even Numbers Yes
Odd Numbers No

Court Cards

King No
Queen Yes
Knight No
Page Yes

What you have written is truly what you you want to do on earth. Your purpose of living. How far are you off tracked?

Who do you feel you are ? What is the meaning in your life?

Till the next class,

Passionately Sharing,

Katherine Goh

July 28th 2014 Connective Session: Pendulum Divination

Using pendulums for divination is a technique that is over two hundred years old. It is used to better understand your intuition, and to speak with your subconscious mind. In this class, you will learn how you yourself can create and use pendulums for divination.

Choosing and using a pendulum

The most popular form of pendulum is cylindrical clear crystal quartz rounded or pointed at one end. Amethyst is good for earth energies work and rose quartz for health related questions or for protection. Whatever is the case, choosing and using a pendulum is a very important criteria in pendulum divination.

Charge Your Pendulum is also an important step in the process of creating your pendulum divination. 

Calibrate Your Pendulum

To calibrate your pendulum simply means you’re checking it to see how it’s working. To do this, hold it by the free end of the chain so that the weighted end is loose. Make sure you keep it perfectly still. Ask a simple Yes/No question to which you already know the answer is Yes, such as “Am I female?” or “Do I live in Singapore?”

Keep your eye on the pendulum, and when it starts moving, note whether it goes side to side, forwards to backwards, or some other direction. This indicates your “Yes” direction.

Now, repeat the process, asking a question to which you know the answer is No. This will give you your “No” direction. It’s a good idea to do this a few times with different questions, so you can get a feel for how your pendulum responds to you. Some will swing horizontally or vertically, others swing in small or large circles, others don’t do a whole lot unless the answer is really important. Once you’ve calibrated your pendulum and gotten to know it a bit, you can use it for some basic divination.

We had a fun evening creating and “playing” with our pendulum divination boards we have created.

Till the next class…

Stay Creative and Fun,

Guided Past Life Stepping Stones Regression Meditation

Each person who is on their Spiritual pathway will understand that as time passes by our pathways tend to take different turnings and we are led in all different kinds of directions.  When this happens our eyes tend to be opened to all different kinds of things or we look at things differently to how we had done.  In a sense it is like seeing the world for the first time, when you begin you may take faltering steps but with some support and understanding you become sure footed and begin to find your way.

Past life meditation can be profoundly life changing both positive and sometimes negative. Memories of past lives are believed to be buried deep in the mind requiring trained focus to open these insight channels of the brain. Once unlocking this door you will be presented with a gallery of images depicting people, scenery, events, pictures of yourself either male or female, sometimes sounds will occur and often an emotion will arise. You may see and hear people talking, a particular region of the world you are in may be apparent and you may also become aware of the year.

Past life meditation is an advanced form of meditation. To believe you will be rewarded with results immediately is futile. Practicing daily will lead slowly to a rewarding progression of insights into your past lives. Keeping a diary to record all the information and sensations you experienced during the meditation will help you to identify themes and patterns. The meditation experience will also reward you with an overwhelming sense of peace, relaxation and comfort.

I would suggest that after each past life meditation, do a tarot reading on Past Life to give more insights.

Below is a video clip, that i thought might be useful for anyone who are not available with a Past Life Meditation CD.

Namaste Om.

What’s the one thing you’re never gonna give up?

I sat down. I was Meditating. A question came to my presence. “What’s the one thing you’re never gonna give up?”. I feel within myself, in search for an answer ; I meditate on this question. I have an answer. That is LOVE.

Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about. For me, that is LOVE.

I am In Love everyday. From the moment i open my eyes in the mornings, i will anticipate my day with love. The Love for my Work, my husband, my family and friends…practically EVERYTHING. I gave my love to them and i felt the Love they have for me. I am bless. We are bless. 

I’m not gonna give up Love. How about you? Ponder on this question and do share with me your thoughts.

With Love & Light,

5 Ways to create Good Karma

In its most basic sense, the Law of Karma in the moral sphere teaches that similar actions will lead to similar results. Let us take an example. If we plant a mango seed, the plant that springs up will be a mango tree, and eventually it will bear a mango fruit. Alternatively, if we plant a Pong Pong seed, the tree that will spring up will be a Pong Pong tree and the fruit a Pong Pong. As one sows, so shall one reap. According to one’s action, so shall be the fruit. Similarly, in the Law of Karma, if we do a wholesome action, eventually we will get a wholesome fruit, and if we do an unwholesome action eventually we will get an unwholesome, painful result. This is what we mean when we say that causes bring about effects that are similar to the causes. 

The law of Karma teaches that responsibility for harmful actions lies with the person who commits them. Karma thus has to do with cause and effect. Every action you take creates the cause for events to happen to you. This means that, every single thing that happens to you – good and bad – is in truth caused by you, yourself, your own actions and your own thoughts. There is no escape from one’s karma. There are many ways to create good karma.

  • ACTIONS REPEATEDLY DONE CREATE POWERFUL KARMA

When the same action is repeated many times, be it good or bad, powerful karma gets created. Actions directed at powerful objects such as one’s parents, one’s spiritual teachers or at monks, nuns or temple priests also create powerful karma. This is true of even the smallest disrespectful act or the smallest virtuous action.

The karmic results of actions done to powerful objects can usually be experienced in this life. Suffering results come from negative actions while favorable results arise from virtuous actions. It thus follows that we should really be very mindful of our actions and the thoughts that accompany our actions, because it is from mindfulness that we can develop habits that lead to actions that create good karma. This is especially important in the present era, a time Hindu masters refer to as the period of the kali yoga when karmic results tend to ripen much faster, usually within this same lifetime.

  • CHANT A MANTRA

Chanting mantras is the easiest way of getting started on the road towards opening new horizons for the mind. To start with, it is a very powerful way to purify the negative karmic imprints we all bring into the world with us. Negative imprints linger on in every one’s consciousness, the mind-stream that we carry from one lifetime to the next. Start with the most famous mantra in the world, the mantra of the Compassionate Buddha:  Om Mani Padme Hum

This is a very popular mantra. It is wonderfully uplifting as it is the mantra of the Buddha of Compassion whom the Chinese know as the Goddess Kuan Yin. Reciting one mala of this mantra 108 times a day will awaken hidden yogic abilities within you. This mantra will calm your fears, soothe your concerns, heal your broken heart and answer all your prayers. Chant this mantra aloud, as you eat, as you bathe, as you make up your face or when you are waiting for someone or for something. You can chant it anytime anywhere. Chant it aloud or silently, inside your head, inside your mind. Asleep. Awake. Let this mantra permeate your being. Do not worry about the pronunciation. What is important is your motivation.

While reciting the mantra try to concentrate on its sound and allow it to penetrate deep within, into your inner consciousness and eventually, into your subconscious mind. Always chant it with the thought of benefiting others. It will not take you long to sense wonderful benefits permeating through your consciousness. In no time at all, you will feel yourself become kinder, more tolerant, and less prone to getting upset.

Many high lamas say that just reciting Om Mani Padme Hum can bring us all to Enlightenment, simple and easy though it is. This mantra is one of the ten most powerful mantras of all time.

  •  MAKE KINDNESS YOUR RELIGION – My religion is kindness

Creating good karma is not about being religious. One need not even be a Buddhist or belong to any religious faith to create good karma. What you do need is to develop a kind attitude towards others. So creating good karma is simply about being kind. Not just for a moment but always, throughout one’s life, in every aspect of our living, in every relationship – in the way we conduct our business, in all our interactions – when you approach everything you do motivated by an attitude of kindness, you are creating a great deal of good karma, the kind that creates the cause for others to be kind to you. It is the surest way of developing a life where aggravations simply dissipate.

  • PRACTICE SPIRITUAL MEDITATION

When you sit down on a cushion with your legs crossed, your spine straight and your eyes slightly closed looking three feet in front of you, the first thing to do is to set your motivation. Tune into your mind and focus on why you are doing the meditation – to develop your mind to benefit all beings. Setting this altruistic motivation establishes the basis of meditation practices. And from then on you can meditate on any subject related to the development of your understanding of life. When you meditate this way lightly reflecting on how precious your life is, how lucky you are to have been born at all, to be alive and to be well … in time you will come to realize just how lucky you really are in just having a human life, having the ability to think, to analyze, to understand and yes, to philosophize. This is how meditation can lead to wisdom realizations and good karma.

I have blogged some time back that meditation is therapeutic. Check out the post here.

  • CONNECT WITH A SPIRITUAL TEACHER

Start by meditating on your path to ultimate happiness, the kind that is permanent rather than transient. Think through all the things that make you happy and slowly come to the realization that nothing makes us happy forever. All of life is in the nature of impermanence. The pathway to ultimate happiness is elusive and permanent happiness seems so impossible to attain, since in the end we all grow old and die … so unless we are able to grasp new attitudes and perspectives; new ways of rationalizing our existence, how can we find permanent happiness?

To see the light, we need to connect with a spiritual teacher who has affinity with us and who can open our eyes to a greater awareness of our own Buddha nature, our own spirituality, our own continuing consciousness which lives on from life to life. By generating the desire to meet a special teacher who can show us the way to think and meditate correctly, we are creating the cause for just such a sage to manifest in our life. The genuine and heartfelt inner expectation of wanting to connect with a higher spiritual being generates the karma for it to manifest. And then when you are ready, the right teacher for you, will come along. As i have always said: “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear”

Science Vs Meditation – Is there a Connection?

As more and more research emerges on the importance of meditation for healing, I encourage everyone interested in natural health and wellness to engage in this simple yet meaningful practice of relaxation and regeneration. My own personal meditation sabbatical has been profound for me, and as this process winds down, it is my deepest desire to share what I have learned during this time with anyone seeking deep healing and rejuvenation.

Regardless of your age, health, or belief system, simple regular meditation practice can benefit you on all levels. As more and more doctors and health practitioners are recommending this ancient, time-tested practice, meditation is on its way to holding a well-deserved reputation as a simple, yet powerful and safe modality for supporting health and preventing illness. 

After listening to Kelly McGonigal’s talk, I have no doubt that meditation is therapeutic. I am CERTAIN. In my years of healing career, i have shared this techniques with my patients, many of whom are cancer-related and or stress, depression-sufferings individuals. 

It seemed that we are able to go into an alternate default mode which does not engage our evaluation system, (in other words our experiential system is decoupled from our evaluation system) which helps us to function more effectively. We become more mindful, and suffer less.

The Talk describe  that the neuroscience of meditation can help us understand how practice shapes the mind, and offers fresh insight into concepts like mindfulness and suffering.

God’s Milk – Instead of being a cup, become a straw

God’s nature is to constantly bestow its love upon us. As the sages say, “more than the calf wants to suckle, the cow wants to provide it with milk.”

However having the capacity to accept it and being fulfilled by it is very difficult to do. Just look around at people in the world who receive a great deal of energy — talent, adoration, money, power. It takes a level of maturity to handle such light. How many young celebrities come out ahead and how many fall apart.

According to Kabbalah the way that we can be a constant receiver of such energy is to become a channel rather than a vessel. Instead of being a cup, become a straw. In this way, energy flows through us, rather than stopping with us.

How do we shift from a cup to a straw. Becoming more of a sharer, less of a receiver. Please note: I use the word “becoming” instead of “become.” Achieving this state is hard, it’s an ongoing process, and it’s played out throughout the course of our lives.

(from Kabbalah’s teachings)

Challenging Moments, Resilience Moments and Supportive Moments

My first Rock Climbing…FUN & CHALLENGING. I love it. And, most importantly, it taught me things that I apply to my everyday life.

Don’t let go. – If a climb seemed out of my reach, I let go and gave up instantly. I’ve learned that in order to succeed, letting go is not an option; fear and feelings of inadequacy are totally normal in anything new or challenging. And while I may fall in my attempt to get better, I never let go. I will remember this.

Trust my partner. My climbing partner can be the difference between life and death — literally. Just like real life relationships, no?

If you don’t succeed at first, try a new approach. In climbing, there’s usually more than one way to make it to the top. It teaches me to look at the problem in a new way.

Don’t let fear get the best of me. Height can be a challenge for me. Trust me, it can feel scary when you are up there loh.

It’s not always about making it to the top. OK, so in rock climbing, making it to the top is important, but how you get there counts for a lot. And that’s the point. Climbing, like life, is a small series of goals and individual problems that enable you to get to your final destination.

Stay Healthy Passionately,

What makes you happy?

What makes you happy? Well, some of my friends like running, some enjoy a good book, while others prefer unicorns, glitter, and rainbows.

But here’s 5 easy ways that’ll make ANYBODY happy, no matter your personal preference. And why should you get happy right now? ‘Cause it’ll improve your health, stress levels, state of mind and give you a better perspective on your life

  1. Express gratitude! Either do it in a journal, say it to someone, or record it on GratitudeLog.com for everyone to see. Don’t just think it, express it. Just doing so will increase your happiness by 20–25%! So why not take a few minutes each day and say what you’re thankful for. It’s worth the joy you’ll receive.
  2. Unfollow negative people on Facebook and Twitter. Chances are you’ve got one or two people on Twitter of Facebook who seem to always have something negative to say. They might complain about traffic jams or work, but either way, it can be a big drain on your energy and mood. Remember, you are the sum of the 5 people you choose to hang around so choose wisely. If someone on Twitter is overly negative, just unfollow them. And if someone on Facebook is too negative, just click the little Hide button next to their names and you won’t see them in your feed anymore. Instead get fun and uplifting updates from POSITIVE People. And for more laughs and inspiration, here are some of my favorite people on Twitter to follow: P. Diddy, comedians Sarah katherinegoh and katcova, Louise Hay and Deepak Chopra.
  3. Lift your head and smile. Lots of studies have been pouring in that prove your physiology affects your psychology. If you’re slumped over and frowning, you’re going to feel down and mopey. So instead, smile. Smile to everyone you see and smile to yourself. Lift your head up, look up, and smile. Do it right now. It’s a lot harder to be depressed when your body is showing all the signs of joy.
  4. Meditate now. You don’t need a lot of time to do this and you don’t need any fancy candles or incense (for simple basic meditation). Just go into a quiet room, set your alarm or timer for 15 minutes and you’re set. Even if you don’t have your favorite meditation audio, that’s okay. Just take the time to focus on your breath, clear your mind, and welcome clarity and focus. When you take the time to de-stress like this on a regular basis, you’ll be amazed at the positive effects. If you only unwind and relax on the weekend, you’ll find yourself more stressed out and unhealthy in the long run. It’s like starving yourself for a week only to eat after 7 days. Instead just take 10–15 minutes and relax everyday by meditating. You’ll see the difference soon.
  5. Watch some funny videos that inspire! Thanks to the internet and Youtube we’ve been given a delicious buffet of inspirational videos. If you don’t know where to start check out the videos – Pay It Forward in a post i have updated. The video will most definitely make you smile.

If you’ve got any other tips to help get our happy on, drop a comment below Can’t wait to read them.

Stay Happy, Stay Healthy…

Will You Pay It Forward?

We have an unlimited capacity to give. Though, many people don’t recognize this capacity. They fear that they don’t have enough to give. That they’re not important enough to change anyone’s life. They are wrong.

Random Acts Of Kindness
If you don’t practice, and understand, the simple power of a random act of kindness, then you are setting limits on your life. Those limits keep you from living a life filled with the fun and joy that comes from simply being nice.

Let’s everyday be Giving Day !

A reminder of the important things in life

The key to inner peace,well being and a fulfilling life may be simpler than we think…  : )

I came across a beautiful short clip today in Youtube…A two minute forty-three second video “A Reminder Of The Important Things In Life,” captures the core essence of the principles for living life with a full heart and spirit, and feeling fulfilled. So far, this is the best SIMPLE example of how to live life to the fullest. And simple IS best.

I’m often asked “why are you always so full of Joy?” “How is it you are always so happy?” “Where do you get those positive vibes?”

Some people falsely assume it’s because I have created financial freedom for myself and don’t need to worry about money (well, you always have money ‘challenges’ it’s just the number of zeros on the end of the ‘invoice’ that increases along with your wealth! You simple have better quality financial challenges.)

Others assume it’s because of things that are outside of myself.

(Really,nothing outside of us can MAKE us feel happy, sad or other-wise. These may trigger our internal belief systems and previous experiences and the meanings we (unconsciously) give them. (TRUTH is ALL emotion is an internally generated experience based on our beliefs and the meanings we attach to the experiences. We CAN CHOOSE the meanings.)

The truth is, I mostly live in an emotional state of Joy and Happiness by CHOICE, and regular mental and emotional conditioning.

Being open and learning to love ourselves and each other with kindness, compassion and gratitude enables us to feel a sense of inner peace and well being. It also enables us to regain something that many of us have seemingly lost — our sense of “connection”

May this short video be A REMINDER OF THE IMPORTANT THINGS IN LIFE…. and it really is this simple. Enjoy this clip and remember to embrace the important things in life.

Namaste,

Katherine Goh

Thoughts Become Movie – Become Our Life

Some may have long known that our thoughts shape what we perceive as reality every bit as much as reality shapes our thoughts. We are more than mere observers of reality – we are creators. It is we who produce and direct our own movie – the same movie in which we ourselves are the stars. What kind of movie would you like to create today? Love story? Comedy? Drama? You have the CHOICE!

Be Conscious of your thoughts

You may have noticed that when you think positively, you tend to feel more relaxed and energetic. When you are upset, you are more likely to feel tired and lazy. These sensations are not coincidental. The way we think—our attitudes and outlook on life—strongly affects our physical state. Taking an effort to think positively, even if doing so feels like a strain, is vital to keeping your body healthy.

Into our Deeper Self

When you listen to a thought,you are aware not only of the thought but also of yourself as the witness of the thought. A new dimension of consciousness has come in. As you listen to the thought, you feel a conscious presence – your deeper self- behind or underneath the thought, as it were. The thought then loses its power over you and quickly subsides, because you are no longer energizing the mind through identification with it. This is the beginning of the end of involuntary and compulsive thinking.

When a thought subsides, you experience a discontinuity in the mental stream, like a gap of “no-mind”. When these gaps occur, you feel a certain stillness and peace inside you. You will also feel a subtle emanation of joy arising from deep within: the joy of Being.
