Truth & the Path & My RETURN!

I took some time off to do some massive healing myself and work on parts of myself that had become emotionally dense, angry, sour and lost of hope. I have finally come through this stronger than ever, solid and ready to do the work that sets me apart, maybe even what I was born and trained to do.

I am going to start back up my online energy healing work, quantum connective medicine. I will be doing these sessions by zoom, these sessions can help where other things have not, they can charge up, bring information unknown in the mix, plug into new spaces, unplug the old reruns that keep us making the same choices, and having the same health responses and more.

I was born into the bloodlines of people genetically altered to do this kind of work and also studied with native medicine and shaman people along the journey of my life in the energy medicine arts. I had to back way off from doing these kinds of sessions since 2003. I hope I have finally moved through the darkest section of my life. I do not have all the answers but in this work, we find them together.

I went through a period starting in 2007 when I was doing energy healing sessions and the only thing that was coming through in people were these future lives and I had no idea what to do with this information and I was horrified by what I was seeing, it made it harder to help people. The truth is not always good, the truth is sometimes hard to swallow, the truth sometimes brings you to your knees into the gutter where you cannot pull yourself out. You have to just be there.

Energy Medicine work requires dealing with the darkness, the light, and all the shades of grey in between, and in order for me to get it right, do it in a good way I have to travel to places that kill me, kill my beliefs, kill my mind, kill my heart, kill my soul in order to adapt to see the truth without the set of beliefs I learned here in this world to dictate, filter and change the truth into an acceptable pill to swallow every day.

A few nights ago the good spirits gave me what I am calling an otherworldly atomic blast. This blast happened in this dream and woke me up as it continued while awake. As the days after I can feel that everything in me, in this life, cleared in one big blow. Lifting me back up on my own two feet it is time to move forward and bring in the consciousness needed to maneuver out of the dark ages on this planet for one and for all, for all living things.

Blessings, Peace, and Truth, Bridgette

In order to keep us obedient and meek and weak, the predators engaged themselves in a stupendous maneuver – stupendous, of course, from the point of view of a fighting strategist. A horrendous maneuver from the point of view of those who suffer it. They gave us their mind!Through the mind, which, after all, is their mind, the predators inject into the lives of human beings whatever is convenient for them.” Don Juan Matus

 

We have to understand here that the true Negative Realm agenda is to “eat consciousness.” So, this actually prevents an overt “take-over” in literal, physical terms. If an “invasion” was detected, this would mean that the veil would be lifted and all would see the “man behind the curtain” and would be disgusted and turn away. Just as in the “Wizard of Oz,” those Ruby Slippers have to be obtained VERY CAREFULLY!

Gathering the essence is an art of great subtlety! The “negative alien plan” is, in its purest sense, STALKING. The aim of Stalking is to create a completely controlled artificial environment composed of thoroughly predictable human behaviors – made predictable because they have been programmed to respond to cues of conditioning.

For centuries these programming signals have been being set up – either because of time travel capabilities or because of actual historical presence. Various prophets or religious leaders have been influenced to preach or teach or prophesy philosophies designed to lay a foundation for later take-over – possibly in our present time.

A lot of people think that the “alien invasion scenario” is a ruse concocted by the government to create the impression that there is a forming “threat,” thereby enabling the institution of a New World Order. But, this idea is based on a misrepresentation of the process just described.

The important thing to remember is this: there is NOT a “unified conspiratorial activity” going on here in the hierarchy of government. The “divide and conquer” effect is also manifest at this level and suits the alien purposes to a “T.Such activity at ALL levels is consistent with their program of STALKING, in which confusion and cross-purpose prevents a clear perception on the part of the Stalkees. Yet, at some deep level, there may be a direct conspiratorial interaction between the “secret government” and the negative aliens… but it is unlikely that any name of those involved would be recognized by anyone, no matter how “in the know” regarding the subject. These “secret superiors” are just that: SECRET. Any organization you can name, or about which you are AWARE, are merely “outer circles.

What is the designed objective of this STALKING?
The effect of Stalking is sort of like stampeding a herd of cattle. Bit by bit, they are consolidated into a “negative mode” which consists of the idea of “us vs them.” Even though, on the surface, it may seem that this “mode” is positive or STO (Service to Others), (i.e. save the world because it is “wrong” or flawed, or blighted with original sin or whatever) the very fact that it is formed in the “dominator” mode of perceiving salvation “outside,” means that it can more easily be “taken over” body, mind, and soul at a level that is “unseen and unseeable.” In other words: Satan CAN and most often DOES appear as an Angel of Light!

It is in this understanding that we find our way out of the trap. It isn’t easy, but it is away. The primary object of Negative stalking is to persuade through strongly influenced, but not robotic, behavior patterns, the Free Choice of the targeted CONSCIOUSNESS to align with negative higher-density existence. Because, in the Long Run, the object is the “eating” of functioning units of consciousness by the negative hierarchy, with Free Will intact! It is not good food otherwise!” Michael Topper

The more important someone attaches to a determination of her identity, the more she divides herself from the unbounded reality of wholeness. A narrowing attachment to identity creates strife not just within an individual, but in society at large. In his book ‘Identity and Violence’, Amartya Sen argues that the more narrowly people ‘identify’ themselves by race, gender, status, religion, heritage or nationality, the more prone they will be to committing violence.
That makes sense when we understand ‘objective’ identifications as top-down phenomena: ideas about how one should be are imposed onto the self. This is already a form of violence in which idea dominates and silences being. When someone adopts a categorical standard for how a human should be, it becomes all too easy to turn that violence against others – even friends, neighbors or family members. I believe that the most dangerous people are those who feel their ideas about the Present more keenly than they feel the Present itself.” Philip Shepherd

Insecurity and anxiety also motivate us to form and join groups. Being a part of a group relieves us of anxiety because it makes us feel like we are not the only ones who feel insecure about a particular thing. We often form groups with individuals who have similar insecurities. Having similar [unconscious] insecurities cause us to have similar desires from the perspective of the internal conflict model…Thus, the more insecure and anxious we are, the more motivated we are to form and maintain our own groups.” Toru Sato, 

When someone openly regards their own systems of thought as monumentally important, they are divulging a deep crack in their own core. An inner struggle is being played out publicly. Still, they insist that they are altruistically devoted to just getting the information out, serving as a conduit for sacred knowledge, helping the global awakening, serving the planetary spirit. Or some shit like that.
Many people put an artificial sealing over their work and research, getting stuck in a tunnel vision of topics they keep focusing on, trying to explain everything through it instead of being truly open-minded and looking at the many other angles of our multifaceted reality. Don’t attach yourself to anything you can’t honorably walk away from. Keep free and flexible. Have the courage to discriminate. Learn to know when you are hearing dogma. Know when you are hearing the shriek of the ego.

The power in you is your uniqueness and individuality. How you see and move in the world is a precious bequest to the divine source from where you came and where you go back to. If you walk around any city, you will see people choosing not to control themselves and therefore they become followers, not independent, not individuals, not pioneers, not explorers. It’s an anti-human way to follow. The biggest threat the establishment has is individuality, people who think for themselves, people who say: no more of this group mentality. I don’t care what they are following. It could be the best yoga, the best spiritual guru, it could be beautiful ancient Hindu, german or french texts, whatever. I don’t care. If you are following, you are doing it wrong. The only path is the path of the Individual. That’s what it is all about and what you are here for.

There is an esoteric axiom, all untrue things eventually destroy themselves. Empire, as long as “I” get out of the way, is burning itself out and it’s a natural power of the evolutionary process. In mystical studies, you’ll find that this has happened before. It has happened periodically over millions of years, not thousands, but millions of years.
And the message is always, look humans, you are super powerful. It’s the divine will, a metaphysical spark of creation within you, call it what you wish. To be here is to grow and explore as an Individual. If we are not doing that, we give that power away, we surrender it, and there are other beings in this world who will gladly take that and do something else with that. And that’s how empire rises.” Neil Kramer

The higher one rises, the farther one is pulled down. Evolution does not move higher and higher, into an ever more heavenly heaven, but deeper and deeper. Each evolutionary cycle closes a little lower, a little nearer to the Center where the supreme High and Low, heaven and earth, will finally meet….The more Light [the seeker] possesses, the more darkness he/she uncovers.” Satprem


“No tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell.” Carl Jung


“None can reach heaven who has not passed through hell.” Sri Aurobindo

It is clear that Mind has not been able to change human nature radically. You can go on changing human institutions infinitely and yet the imperfection will break through all your institutions. It must be another power that can not only resist but overcome that downward pull. Even if our ideas reached life in their pure form, they would still be incapable of creating anything other than a military order—or perhaps a holy, comfortable, religious order, but an order all the same, because the Mind can only devise systems and seek to confine everything in them. The reason of man struggling with life becomes either an empiric or a doctrinaire. It seizes upon a bit of truth, one drop of divine illumination, and makes it a universal law; it constantly confuses unity with uniformity.

Even when it is capable of understanding the need for diversity, it is practically incapable of implementing it, because it only knows how to deal with what is invariable and finite, while the world is teeming with an infinite variety. Ideas themselves are partial and insufficient: not only have they a very partial triumph, but if their success were complete, it would still disappoint, because they are not the whole truth of life and therefore cannot securely govern and perfect life. Life escapes from the formulas and systems which our reason labors to impose on it; it proclaims itself too complex, too full of infinite potentialities to be tyrannized over by the arbitrary intellect of man.
The root of the difficulty is this that at the very basis of all our life and existence, internal and external, there is something on which the intellect can never lay a controlling hand, the Absolute, the Infinite.

Behind everything in life, there is an Absolute, which that thing is seeking after in its own way; everything finite is striving to express an infinite which it feels to be its real truth. Moreover, it is not only each class, each type, each tendency in Nature that is thus impelled to strive after its own variation. Thus there is not only an Absolute, an Infinite in itself which governs its own expression in many forms and tendencies but there is also a principle of infinite potentiality and variation quite baffling to the reasoning intelligence; for the reason deals successfully only with the settled and the finite. In man, this difficulty reaches its acme.

For not only is mankind unlimited in potentiality, not only is each of its powers and tendencies seeking after its own absolute in its own way and therefore naturally restless under any rigid control by the reason; but in each man their degrees, methods, combinations vary, each man belongs not only to the common humanity but to the Infinite in himself and is therefore uniqueIt is because this is the reality of our existence that the intellectual reason and the intelligent will cannot deal with life as its sovereign.” Sri Aurobindo

Yogis and the Energy Body

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prana is the life force-the stuff of those zillion stars circling and exploding. Human beings receive it directly into the body through the air. We take it in in other ways as well, through live foods, freshwater, through living, breathing trees, and vegetation. Yogis discovered the beneath the physical structures of the body and interpenetrating and underlying subtle sphere of reality, which they called the energy body or the pranamayakosha (sheath of vital airs). The very nature of this subtle structure is movement, flow, change.

Yogis found that pranamayakosha to be replete with thousands of invisible channels, or nadis, through which prana flows, energized and sustaining all parts of the physical and energy structure. Nadi system looks much like our circulatory system, or nervous system, but much more dense. The prana body contains seventy-two thousand, detailed descriptions of the nadis was apparently mapped out in deep states of meditation in some ancient text that nadis reach over 300 thousand.

There are fourteen major nadis and just three with which we need to be concerned. All three major nadis originate at the base of the spine and move upward through the body. Two of them, the ida and the pingala, crisscross back and forth as they ascend along the areas of the spinal column find their endpoints in the left nostril (ida) and the right nostril (pingala). The third, the shushumna nadi moves up the spine and splits off into the larynx and the cavity of brahman or the ventricle cavity in the physical body.

Yogis beleieve that this energy body is deeply intelligent, possessing what Chogyan Trungpa Rinpoche called “basic intelligence”.

The major receptor sites for prana in human beings are in the nostrils.  More than anything else it is breathing that builds and regulates the flow of prana. The breath has an immediate impact on the flow of prana through the Nadis. The rate, depth, balance, and regularity of the breath directly determine the quality of energy flow into the prana body, which directly shapes the pattern of energy flow that underlies and sustains the physical body.

If we disassociate, become ridged and the breath becomes slow and weak we may start to have panic attacks which are an alarm system that tells us there is a lack of vital energy entering our energy bodies/fields and nothing to run the energy framework of the physical body. We may believe that we die from the disease which is the illusion it is the energy body that becomes deflated and energetically suffocates us in the end.

 

That Which Remains Unconscious will Come to us as Fate

Those aspects of our physical, visceral lives will relegate to the dark basement of our consciousness will inexorably un-determine the conscious and well-intended projects on the surface of our lives. When Freud said, Anatomy is Destiny” he was, of course, referring to gender. But we now understand that anatomy is destiny in many more ways than that. Paraphrasing Freud, we might rightfully say, too, that “Posture is Destiny”.

There is often a split between thinking and feeling, which shows up as chronic tension in the neck and at the base of the skull. The eyes will be disconnected and unresponsive, as attempts not to see. Joints are frozen, and there is often a deep twisting away from the visceral experience of life. 

Try as we might to “transcend” the voice of the body through intellect, sheer will power, spirituality, the subterranean power of our unconscious postures will always hold sway. The deep patterning of the body will undermine our most elaborate rationalizations, ideas, hopes, and fantasies. The entire superstructure of our adult lives is underlain by the primal language of our postures. The primary genius of yoga lies precisely in its recognition of the critical role of the body in the development and transformation of character. Most spiritual paths begin with what yogis call “mental bodies”, thoughts and feelings moving us directly to meditation, contemplation, scriptural study, or prayer. Yogis took a radical step in moving the entry point of spiritual practice right to the body. the yogic traditions, therefore, bring our attention directly to the annamayakosha (the physical body) understanding it to be the doorway to the more subtle interior worlds.

 

A Human Being is a part of the whole called by us Universe

A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
― Albert Einstein

Special Visitor

I woke up today and this was looking right at me. I feel so blessed to have a special visit, special attention from this grand being.

I am calling this being the Crystalline Octopus Light Being. Whenever beings visit me like this I know I am loved, being watched over, cared for.

In the last few days, I have been asking for energy, the power to get through some changes. My message seems to have been heard and that energy is being sent directly to me.

This being was on the wall, it was so unique and gorgeous.

Enjoy the Light….

Breaking the Chains of Conditioning

Putting choiceless awareness into practice requires that we not tune out our experience of attraction and aversion but tune them in even more deeply. Yogis discovered that if we can learn to train our awareness enough to acknowledge sensations as they arise, to experience them fully, and to bear them, then we can no longer be bound to the wheel of opposites. We are no longer whipped around by our conditioned responses to pleasure and pain. We can no longer be compelled to act unconsciously on the sensations.

Desire is not the problem. Attraction is not the problem. Aversion is not the problem. The problem is learning to live with the bare reality of the phenomenal world. The skillful means used in the yogic practice to explore this bare reality is called afflictions in the yogic view, witness consciousness is the primary skillful means for freeing us from our bondage to them. These are the six primary characteristics of the witness.

  • The witness does not choose for or against any aspect of reality. The witness does not split life into good or bad, right or wrong, high and low, or spiritual and not spiritual. The witness does not take the sides but experiences a kind of choiceless awareness.
  • The witness does not censor life. The witness allows all thoughts, feelings, and sensations to receive the light of awareness, without discriminating. There is absolutely nothing that the witness cannot see, feel, and experience. There is no shadow, no shame, no repression that is not capable of being penetrated by witnessing. The witness is not judgemental in any way, but practical self-observation without judgment.
  • Witnessing is a whole-body experience. Witnessing is not an intellectual exercise. Quite to the contrary. We actually witness our experience with the whole body, allowing ourselves to feel the reverberations of the sensations throughout the whole physical emotional organism. Indeed, when the witness is finely honed, we can sometimes feel the reverberation of experience throughout all of the five sheaths.
  • Witness consciousness is always present at least in its potential form in every human being at every moment. The witness is the essence of the divine, awake, already enlightened nature. We don’t have to create the witness. This quality of consciousness needs only to be recognized, evoked, claimes, and cultivated.
  • The witness is the part of the already awake mind that is capable of standing completely still, even in the center of the whirlwind of sensations, thoughts, feelings, fantasies- even in serious mental and physical illness. From the witness, we can stand back and objectively observe our experience even as we’re having that experience. Even as the witness stands as the still point at the center of the storm, though, this part of our consciousness can fully dance with life, directly experiencing all sensation, even as it remains completely still, anchored and grounded.
  • The witness goes everywhere. The witness is connected to the whole quantum field of mind and matter. Witness consciousness stands outside time and space, living in the eternal now of the unmanifest realms, while also penetrating time and space. Witness consciousness is the quality of the self-aware universe. It is the intelligence, the “sight without a seer”, that saturates the whole quantum field of mind and matter.

The Five Koshas

As we begin to explore the koshas below, you’ll notice that they map out an inward journey, from the periphery of the body and arriving at the very essence of who you are.

1. Physical Body

We begin at the outermost layer, the physical body (organs, bones, muscle tissue, and skin), known as the annamaya kosha in yoga. Anna means “food” or “physical matter” and maya means “made of.” We are the most familiar with our annamaya kosha—the experience of our physical body in yoga.

2. Energy Body

Sheathed by the physical layer, the energetic body is called the pranamaya kosha and is composed of the body’s subtle life-force energy prana, also known as chi in Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The animating force behind every atom, cell, organ, and body system, prana coordinates every physiological activity, from the pumping of the heart to the elimination of waste.

Imbalances or blocks within this energetic body greatly affect the overall function of the physical body. What’s more, the body’s subtle energy greatly influences the state of the mind, which is the next layer of self. Prana is closely related to the breath—you receive prana upon the air you breathe.

When the breath is shallow and sporadic, your prana is also erratic. Unstable pranic energy causes the mind to become agitated and the body’s various systems irregular. Smooth out the breath, and prana becomes more stable, the mind gets calmer, and all the body’s living systems function more optimally.

If you’re interested in working with your vital energy, yogic breathing practices known as pranayama exercises, increase and regulate prana in the body.

3. Mental Body

The third layer corresponds to your mind, emotions, and nervous system—expressed as streams of thoughts, feelings, and sensations, and is known as the manomaya kosha, from manas, which means “mind” or “thought processes.”

Many of us have an overactive manomaya kosha that wears on our nervous system and plays out through our emotions. Yoga helps calm our minds and soothe our nervous systems, allowing you to recover from the effects of stress and fatigue on your third body.

Your mental body is also where we experience the five senses. It’s the sheath that allows us to receive, absorb, and process input from the world around us, governing our automatic responses and reflexes. When you go on autopilot and zone out, you’re operating from your manomaya kosha.

4. Wisdom Body

You begin working with the first three bodies as soon as you start practicing yoga.

Coordinating your breath with your movement brings you present on your mat—synchronizing your physical, energetic, and mental bodies. However, the next layer, your wisdom body, takes a little more internal awareness that is cultivated over time.

Beneath the constant stream of thoughts, feelings, and sensations (the processing, thinking, and reactive mind), lies an inner knowing and higher intelligence in your wisdom body, which is called the vijnanamaya kosha, from vijnana, or “intellect.”

Your intuition, conscience, and the reflective aspects of your consciousness are all part of your wisdom body. Here, we develop our awareness and deeper insight into the nature of who we are and how we relate to the world around us.

The practice of yoga helps quiet the mental body so that our wisdom body can be heard and begin to guide us. One simple way to start working with your vijnanamaya kosha is to simply pay attention to any sensations or pulsations taking place internally throughout your practice.

For example, after a Bridge Pose or backbend, once you’re back down on your mat, close your eyes, feel the sensations taking place on the inside, and become aware of your heartbeat.

5. Bliss Body

The deepest layer of our being is the core of our existence, known as the anandamaya kosha, from ananda, which means “bliss.” Often referred to as your highest self or spirit, your bliss body is where you experience the unbounded freedom, expanse, and joyousness of your true nature.

Connection with this kosha is like coming home. There’s a sense of peace and connectedness during which time ceases to exist and your consciousness expands beyond the limits of your body.

While most people aren’t even aware of this aspect of their being, chances are you’ve experienced glimpses of your anandamaya kosha throughout your life.

Holding your newborn child or looking into your lover’s eyes, you may have dropped from conscious awareness and into your radiant bliss body. You might have also touched upon it while losing yourself in a painting, poem, film, story, or song, or perhaps while giving a speech or performance.

I dip in and out of my bliss body when I’m teaching yoga. Without having to involve my thinking mind, wisdom, directions, and insights pour out of me and fifteen minutes can go by in the blink of an eye.

 

 

Yogi’s Discovered a Third Way

Yogis discovered a third way, a path that does not split the world into two pain and pleasure, right and wrong, good and bad, sacred and profane. They discovered a path that does not require us to suppress the energy of desire, but allows, us to fully experience it. Patanjali writes of his third way as the development of a kind of “impartially in the spheres of pleasure and pain, virtue and vice.”

The fifteenth-century scripture called Vedantasara The Essence of the Doctrines of Vedanta describes the practice of titiksa, a cultivation of an attitude of impartiality, patients, and endurance towards the pairs of opposites, a practice this scripture honors as one of the six treasures of life.

This impartiality and neutrality towards polarities referred to by some modern yogis, as choiceless awareness. Choiceless awareness is the third way because when we are practicing it, we do not push away any sensation. We do not believe the pairs of opposites can be separated. Rather, we develop our capacity to experience the way things are, to live each moment fully, to receive the whole light and sounds show.

In a sense, we do not choose against any experience, we choose for all of it.
