“In the World, but not of the World” with Shamanism

Miguel Ruiz, Tolec linage of Daun Juan , Talks of this in a profound way. He refers to the “ of the world” as the mitote, fog or the drama that is unconscious survival and habits of the daily day after day mundane, head down working for egoic or materialistic goals.

A modern example is from the movie the Matrix, where Neo knows there is more than his daily existence, he feels it, he touches it in his daydreams but he can’t grasp it with his mind. As the movie progresses he learns to see beyond the mundane of daily habitual functioning and move in the world without being a part of it. He learns the truth of existence.

Many eastern traditions refer to it as “the veil” and once one pierces the veil and sees the truth there really is no going back.

Through my shamanic training, many years ago I underwent a profound transformation which included the piercing of the veil I had to redefine all my action and interactions with everything and everyone in the world. I chose to redefine myself as I related to the 3D existence.  The ability to hold awareness in 3 foci and dance the dance between Spirit, Inner and External worlds.

What is Mitote? from the Book “The Four Agreements”

What exactly is Mitote? The concept can be confusing and vague.

The outside dream – the world – is full of unpleasantness, drama, violence, fear, war, and injustice. Fear and false beliefs control the outside dream.

Because we’re integrated strongly into this outside dream, our personal dream is also ruled by fear. The agreements and beliefs we store in our heads stop us from seeing the truth – that justice, beauty, joy, and freedom can be our personal dream

This inability to see the truth is a fog of perception the Toltecs called a mitote. The mitote clouds our vision, so we can’t see who we really are. We can’t see that we’re not free. We create an image of who we should be in order to be liked, loved and good enough. But this image isn’t real.

We even harm ourselves to be accepted by others. (Think of the teenager who takes drugs or starves herself to be accepted, or of someone who stays in an abusive relationship.) When we accept self-abuse, we learn to tolerate abuse from others because of an inner belief: “I deserve it.” A false image of perfection makes us reject ourselves and others.

Mitote, the chaos in our minds, leads to misunderstandings and misinterpretations. We simply don’t perceive things the way they truly are.

Mitote is also caused by gossip. Gossip spreads, whether it’s being mindlessly repeated or spread intentionally as a calculated effort to bring someone down. The contagious poison of gossip creates what the Toltecs called the mitote. The mitote is defined as “the chaos of 1,000 voices all trying to talk at once in the mind.”

VISION QUEST

“This moment humanity is going through can now be seen as a portal and as a hole.

The decision to fall into the hole or go through the portal is up to you.

If you repent of the problem and consume the news 24 hours a day, with little energy, nervous all the time, with pessimism, you will fall into the hole. But if you take this opportunity to look at yourself, rethink life and death, take care of yourself and others, you will cross the portal.

Take care of your homes, take care of your body. Connect with your spiritual House.

When you are taking care of yourselves, you are taking care of everything else. Do not lose the spiritual dimension of this crisis, have the eagle aspect, that from above, and see the whole; see more broadly.

There is a social demand in this crisis, but there is also a spiritual demand. The two go hand in hand. Without the social dimension, we fall into fanaticism. But without the spiritual dimension, we fall into pessimism and lack of meaning.

You were prepared to go through this crisis. Take your toolbox and use all the tools available to you.

Learn about resistance of the indigenous and African peoples: we have always been and continue to be exterminated. But we still haven’t stopped singing, dancing, lighting a fire and having fun. Don’t feel guilty about being happy during this difficult time.

You do not help at all being sad and without energy. You help if good things emanate from the Universe now. It is through joy that one resists. Also, when the storm passes, each of you will be very important in the reconstruction of this new world.

You need to be well and strong. And, for that, there is no other way than to maintain a beautiful, happy and bright vibration. This has nothing to do with alienation.

This is a resistance strategy. In shamanism, there is a rite of passage called the quest for vision. You spend a few days alone in the forest, without water, without food, without protection. When you cross this portal, you get a new vision of the world, because you have faced your fears, your difficulties …

This is what is asked of you:

Allow yourself to take advantage of this time to perform your vision seeking rituals. What world do you want to build for you? For now, this is what you can do: serenity in the storm. Calm down, pray every day. Establish a routine to meet the sacred every day.

Good things emanate; what you emanate now is the most important thing. And sing, dance, resist through art, joy, faith and love. ”
Resist – Be reborn

The FIRST ATTENTION

Desire & Obsession are mis-deployment of OUR WILL which is our personal power, this power should be used instead for our vital organs and body health. 

In order for our first attention to be able to focus on the world, we perceive needs to highlight certain fumes/luminous strands.

The selected fumes/luminous strand comes from the narrow band in which man’s consciousness is located.

Discarded fumes/luminous strands are still within one’s reach but remain dormant, unknown to man for his life.

The new seers call the fumes/luminous strands highlighted on the right side of the body (left hemisphere lateralization), the normal consciousness, the tonal, this world, the known, the first attention.

The common man calls it reality, rationality, common sense.

These are a large portion of the man’s band, but they are only a small part of the total spectrum of fumes/ luminous strands present within the cocoon or energy body.

The discarded fumes, even within the man’s gang, are considered to be the preamble of the unknown. The unknown itself consists of the rest of the fumes/luminous strands that are not part of the human band and are never accentuated. ~ Don Juan Matus

The first attention, our normal modus operandi, is the way we operate, perceive and navigate in daily life.   This state of being (or more appropriately – “doing”) is arrived at through the complex development and layering of the mind-ego conglomerate, with its attendant programs, scripts, justifications, excuses, self-adoration, criticisms, flaws, and patterns.  It’s as though our consciousness was on “auto-pilot” and we careen through life, largely unaware of the true nature of self and world.

The first attention is held in place as the “ruler” of our perception, but the anchoring of what Castaneda refers to as the assemblage point – a nexus of energetic fibers of awareness, trained from birth to ‘hold’ perception in an alignment that “agrees” with the perceptions of other beings around us.  The first attention, although powerful and by all appearances, stable… is actually fairly brittle and fragile, because it is held together simply with the corroborated illusion of perceptive ‘agreement’ with those around us.  Put in other words, the first attention is an unspoken agreement of widespread societal collaboration, that “this dream is solid, we have made it solid with our agreements and perceptions, and if you attempt to question or deconstruct it, you will be punished…”

 

The First Attention Keys

The element of Earth, Left Hemisphere Dominate, Biological, Order, Structure, Cause and Effect, Our Attention is Focused in this World, Physical Awareness and Interaction, Solid Matter, Rigidity, Belief, Tension, Material, Daily Life and Material.

Bridgette Lyn was trained and has developed her own Shamanic Blow that does very similar things to Don Juan Matus’s Blow. The hands-on mechanical part is different. Essential for moving out of the first attention and overcoming the stuck point in the energy body. Assemble point shifting to shift focus and get point of focus connecting to other fumes/strands of consciousness. This kind of assemblage point movement, shamanic blow, a reboot can arrest the disease, cure addictions in the First Attention and over time help people to access a higher state of consciousness that connects to where ever they want there focus in their fumes/strands to be. This is done in complete and total sobriety. Bridgette does not recommend using dreaming medicines to shift consciousness for the long term, but proper reboots, moving of the assemblage points, shamanic work, and practices for the long term and assurance of bypassing the First Attention.

So you can be in the world but not of it.

Bridgette Lyn Dolgoff is a lifetime practitioner of shamanic arts and comes from the bloodlines of shamanic people. She works with people by appointment and in person. See fees for price structures and testimonial page.
