The Challenge with Knowledge through Self Help Books, Ted Talks and YouTube Videos

For More than three decades, I have met hundreds of people and new clients whose stories are similar. They are awake and have spent years studying personal development and self-help material. They read all the books, attend all the seminars, all the drop in classes and enroll in all the courses. This was me at one point in my life.

Humans are innately curious and hungry to know more. They believe that if they can just  learn the latest productivity tricks, tips on the psychology of dating and relationships, or get the best business coaching advice, they will be able to lead better, happier lives. They sometimes think that if they change jobs, their lives will improve, relationships will be happier.

In many cases that may be true – temporarily. But only half-true.

There are few things humans hunger for more than knowledge. In short, we all want to know what went down and what is going down.  Of course we also desire to know what will go down but there is no person, thing, nor crystal ball, tarot reader or psychic that can predict the future with accuracy that will improve everything.

Our endless quest for knowledge pings our awareness to different points in time and space to collect data that we consciously and subconsciously process. The knowledge we pick up throughout our lives heavily influences our belief systems and decision-making.

Having an awareness of how things operate is a crucial part of the equation of success in life, however, the key point here is that knowledge is only helpful to the extent that it allows us to experience greater empowerment. By empowerment I mean that which aligns with freedom, self-awareness, joy and peace in our thoughts and actions.

Unfortunately, knowledge is used far and wide towards a disempowered end. We use knowledge to justify all sorts of behaviors that ultimately separate us from what we truly need and desire.

For many people, knowledge is absorbed in great quantities but never translates into empowered action. Anyone can read 20 books on starting a business, but can they get out there in the world and make it happen? If we don’t set one foot in front of another and act on what we know, we are bound to repeat the same cycles of pain and complacency. I know many people, many coaches, healers, teachers and mentors, yoga teachers and practitioners who complete every training available, while collecting completion certificates, but never integrating, embodying and stepping into living, doing and being unified with all of this learned knowledge. 

Knowledge must be practiced, applied and experimented with in real time, with willingness to learn, grown, make mistakes, practice some more. This application is what allows us to become masterful in life. Becoming masterful in life is what it means to evolve. Growing, learning, evolving makes us happier, better humans with more depth. Diving Deep. Mining the gems within. Becoming masterful in whatever you choose IS our life purpose.

So I challenge you to ponder how you may be using knowledge as an excuse to not go after what’s in your heart. You know what needs to be done. There’s nothing left to do but take the first-sometimes scary- but always worthwhile- step in the direction of your desires. Now.

Understanding and Trusting Masculine & Feminine Energy

Do you understand and trust your own masculine and feminine energy? 

Are you willing to have both of these energies (and more…) in your own body, and to help you to run your life, body and business with ease?

What is Masculine and Feminine energies?

First off, let’s give a quick and dirty teaching about what I mean by Masculine and Feminine energies…and the caveat to that is that energy is NOT actually gendered.

When I talk about Masculine and Feminine energies, what I am referring to is how the energy moves and the flavor of it. And it makes it a lot simpler to my mind to say Masculine and Feminine.

Masculine Energy = Directive. Single Focused. Penetrative. Linear. Like an arrow shooting forward. Action. Yang/Shiva/Sun.

Feminine Energy = Expansive. Creative. Multi-dimensional. Supportive. Chaotic. Receptive. It moves out, up, around, growing, flowing. Like a river or ocean. Pure potential. Formless. Provides an inner compass. Directional. Non-action. Yin/Shakti/Moon.

Usually women leaders, even ones who teach feminine arts, are more prone to letting the masculine energy lead. Because it takes a lot of directive actions to create a business (or even to think of starting one!) If you are a leader, you probably didn’t wait around hoping someone would do it for you. You dove in and did it.

Even if you don’t consider yourself a leader, think about all of the times that you were single focused, and checking off boxes to get things done. That is the masculine energy at work.

Feminine energy is creative chaos. It is a desire. It is the formless potential, unknown and the knowing all wrapped up in one. Because the feminine is so expansive, it includes everything. It is the essence of intuition, insight and perceptivity that eventually becomes the inner compass that points the way in the right direction. 

The New Era is calling for a fusion and convergence of the feminine and masculine energies so that we can find new solutions to big problems and issues that cannot be addressed by just the masculine or feminine alone. To have impact in the world as a leader, it is necessary now, more than ever, to develop and balance these energies within yourself. And to be able to access each of these energies with the power of your choice is true mastery in Being Human.

What would the world be like if each of us had access to whatever energy is required right now, with no fear, no hesitation, and no limitations?

Would you like some support for you on this topic?

Spiritual Awakening as a Transformative Experience

The mission of Being Human Life is to support, coach and guide individuals who are experiencing what is commonly referred to as a spiritual awakening. The mission of the Entelechy Institute is to train coaches, therapists, spiritual guides and ministers to support individuals who have experienced realities beyond our 3D reality, and who need assistance to integrate these experiences into their lives.

What are Spiritually Transformative Experiences?

As we shift into the New Era of what is called the Aquarian age, amidst vast societal and cultural change, breakdown of old paradigms and belief systems, millions of people are experiencing spiritually transformative “awakening” experiences. You may have a different name for the experience,  such as: out of body experiences, mystical experiences, or near death experiences. Maybe you’ve had an experience of talking with angels to God, to Jesus, or to people you know who have passed away. Maybe you’ve seen apparitions, been in a profound altered state of consciousness. Maybe you’ve had visions, energy experiences sometimes called Kundalini awakenings, or something else that was outside normal 3D reality. Maybe, you have shifted into a place of doldrums about life and the world you see around you. This disillusionment is leading you into a more reflective space within that has you asking “WHO AM I?, WHY AM I HERE? WHAT IS REAL? WHAT IS MY PURPOSE FOR BEING ALIVE?  The experience of synchronicities, of wonder, of awe, of beauty, of oneness and deeply existential questions all can be spiritually transformative experiences

These experiences can happen at anytime to anyone: in the dentist’s chair, during sleep, walking in nature, during an illness, pre-death, near-death, making love, reading a book, and just about any moment, mostly when least expected.

Most spiritually transformative “awakening” experiences  are naturally occurring and spontaneous.  Individuals who practice meditation can induce these states as well.  I have experienced several of these spontaneous experiences while backpacking in the natural world. As children, some of us experienced the presence of an invisible friend that we could see but other people couldn’t. Children often have non-ordinary experiences, and have learned that it isn’t always safe to talk about such things.

There is a continuum of experiences from low impact on our psychies, our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realities, to high impact, which may require a whole new orientation to the way we perceive the world. The integration and reorganization of one’s reality may take just a small readjustment. For others, it may take a lifetime to assimilate, integrate and to find compassionate presence with themselves and others, as reality continually reveals its vast potential for expression.

Spiritual Awakening Experiences (SAE) are Mostly Positive and Transformative with Support

Often, people who have SAE’s do not experience comfort or support from family and friends. They feel isolated from their partners, their community and even their children. Getting labeled and ostracized leads to the dismantling of relationships. SAE’s are normal phenomena within our reality as human beings. Because most of us do not reveal our experiences for fear of being invalidated and rejected, we keep them to ourselves, sometimes denying that they ever happened in the first place.

Transformational Life Coaches are uniquely trained and skilled to provide the deep listening, intuitive ability to interpret and understand what the client has experienced. The role of the Transformational Coach is to listen and hear them without judgment and without fear of retribution, rejection, and without shame and guilt.  Life, Leadership and transactional coaches and practitioners need to educate themselves on the fundamental challenges that an awakening experience produces. Beyond that, the coach is privileged and blessed with the honor of witnessing and guiding their client through a most intimate, personal and life-giving process of BECOMING at one and integrated with themselves. Professional Coaches, therapists and practitioners must have the sensitivity, capacity, heart-mind-skillset to effectively work with their clients and have to assess their own ability to work with the Amazing Souls who are experiencing the vastly profound Awakening experiences that are opening a doorway to deeply personal growth and transformation.

Simple Practices in Intuition

So often my clients ask me, “How can I really tune into my intuition?” There are so many ways we can integrate our intuition into our daily life and discover the magic in even the most simplest of tasks.  Ultimately you are aiming to live a life with Spirit as your trusted advisor in all areas.

Oh no I hear you say! Another set of tips I have to try and remember! It’s not like that I promise! It will not take extra time out of your day to practise these tips as you are already doing these intuitive things nearly every single day.

All we are going to do is take an extra breath or two, before we focus on what we are already doing, and make a conscious note of any feeling, name or message that comes to mind.

Increase Your Intuition With These 7 Tips

  1. How often do you forget your carefully written shopping list? No problem. Instead of trying to remember what is on your list, use it as an opportunity to follow your intuition with what was on your list. See in your third eye your list as if it is in your hand. Over time you will get better and better.
  2. Before you arrive at your destination, see yourself getting the perfect park. Do not see anyone leaving it only that it is free for you.
  3. Before opening a text or answering a phone call, allow yourself to intuitively ‘see’ who it is. Confirm out loud “I had a feeling it was you”.
  4. Repeat Tip 3 but in reverse before you call or text someone. Think about them for a moment. They will likely say “I was just thinking of you and you called.”
  5. Try to intuitively predict the outcome of T.V. shows and movies you are watching, or books you are reading.
  6. Before leaving home, imagine your journey being clear, you get all green lights and arrive safely and on time at your destination. Remember when you arrive to give thanks.
  7. Play code cracking games or guessing games such as battleships with someone, and practise tuning in before each turn. You can progress to blocking your opponent and tuning in depending on whose turn it is.

Tune in to Spirit for Guidance in the Small as well as Big Stuff

We often think Spirit is only there for the big stuff… love, career, finances and so on. We can become locked into only seeing the patterns in the big things and we often miss that Spirit is a part of everything, even the mundane tasks we do every day. Be present, stay open. Breathe. Look up often. Seek new and fresh perspectives. Ask for guidance and be curious and in wonder about the ways in which your requests are answered!

Crawl, Walk, then Run

The phrase…”crawl, then learn to walk before you can run” is important here, because it is when we begin to listen to our intuition each day on the little things i.e. the car park in number 2, or the heads up in number 6 to go a different way, that we find the meaning in “trusting Spirit.”

It’s when we talk to Spirit at the “daily little things” level and give thanks, that we can see the synchronicity and patterns in all that we do. This is what builds trust between you and Spirit. It is this trusting relationship you develop through talking with Spirit daily, that helps you have faith during truly challenging times. An example that I use often involves misplacing my keys or phone. I search and then when I don’t find it, I ask Spirit Guides and Angel Jophiel, please lead me to my keys. If I am open, breathing and patient, I allow guidance. It works – every single time, concluding with a thought that I had no idea how the keys or phone would have been left in the place to which I was “led.”

Communicate with Spirit Daily

No matter how big or small your issue is! To see Spirit’s gentle messages and patterns in the life changing moments, can only happen if you are aware of how to read, communicate and trust Spirit daily. Trust is something that comes from a relationship being built, based upon practicing asking, presence, listening, watching and patience. Take the time and allow yourself to be guided by your intuition in this way. In doing so, you will be led by Spirit to discover other gifts and abilities within yourself that you never thought possible.

The Being of Earth and Humans in the Morphogenic Field

The New Era is coaxing humanity to recognize the parallels between Earth and the human system. Both are interconnected and tap into one common system that is the morphogenic system. Both Earth and humans consist of 4 energetic vibrational systems that we call bodies. Both have physical systems that consist of the physical, etheric and astral bodies: an emotional body; a mental or causal body; and a spiritual body. The function and interaction of these four bodies depend on the level of consciousness and awareness from which one functions. We all share life with the planet Earth. 

Morphogenic or Morphogenetic fields are fields of thought created by everything in existence; it is the input and output of creation.  With every thought and action (or non-action) every individual strengthens one of those fields of thought that exist or with the focus of enough minds, creates a new one.  You’ve heard of mass consciousness?  This is a morphogenic field.  Global fear, judgement, peace and love are also morphogenic fields in existence, waxing and waning with every individual thought.

The morphogenic field is one of the most important and least understood factors of influence within our society and our global culture.  It is a field of energy containing a certain frequency or resonance, created by all living species that are both visible and invisible on planet Earth.  All living species, human beings, animals and plants have a consciousness and therefore an emotional field.  Emotion and the energy connected to it is one of the most powerful forces of creation in existence.  If you had the ability to encourage a large number of people to think and act in similar ways, a morphogenic field could be created.  Have you heard of the ‘Hundredth Monkey” syndrome?  This is the type of effect a morphogenic field can have within a group.  With enough input, the field itself creates a ripple effect that others knowingly or unknowingly, are able to tap into.  If all people thought and acted in the same way, this would create a field of similarity for everyone.  There are several active groups and organizations currently encouraging peace meditations and global awareness and they have the possibility of reaching a critical mass through a morphogenic field, creating a rippling effect and potentially propelling humanity into a peaceful awareness.

I believe having an awareness of those unseen forces (morphogenic fields) surrounding and influencing us can lead to the choice to make conscious decisions outside of those fields.  Dr. Hawkin’s writing is an extension of the work of Rupert Sheldrake, who is famous as one of the world’s most innovative biologists.  Sheldrake revolutionized scientific thinking with his vision of a living, developing universe with its own inherent memory or morphogenic field. 

Individually and collectively we constantly feed the Universe with our thoughts and the emotional content behind them.  Accessing fields of consciousness, or morphogenic fields is as simple as resonance.  For example, if you carry a high level of resonance for peace, the chances are that you will access peace easier and draw to you peaceful experiences.  Likewise, if you have a high level of resonance for fear, the chances are equally good that you will find yourself tapping into more fear from that field and drawing validating and fearful experiences into your life.

If you have conscious awareness, you can keep yourself clear enough to be less influenced by negative morphogenic fields and choose to shift resonance to access fields that support your choices of higher awareness.
