Have you ever tried to contact your brain and kind of feel it or really become aware what it’s doing? Various other organs seem to be quite happy to communicate one way or another and they respond to loving attention. Especially with our great bodywork of Tibetan Pulsing, we can achieve conscious connection with our organs and body parts and through that experience communication and communion.
My experience with the brain could be called either “multi-response overwhelm”, not able to interpret, too much going on at a time or – the moment meditation comes into the game – it becomes a very interesting observation between science and logic and perception and feeling.
We’ve probably all heard about the two halves, one doing the thinking and being more scientific, the other performing more of feeling and perception. One representing conditioning and convention, the other inviting integration into the oneness experiences of consciousness.
In order for us to experience a harmonious balance and develop a sense of personal self, both halves of the brain need to operate together like the wings of a bird. Thinking and mind have to do with air. Air can be compressed, imprinted. That is what happens with our thoughts, our ideas. They appear, are received by the brain and noticed, then compressed and imprinted into our systems, sitting in the middle between a wing of scientific understanding and another wing of feeling and perception. With both wings operating we learn to experience a healthy sense of self. Why is that necessary, whilst spiritual schools teach absence of self or overcoming it. Well, in order to operate the human body machine properly and play as a player on the stage of social life in the divine play called life, we need to do both: become and define a “story of me” as an individual incarnation and overcome and lose the identification with that same story as a limitation of our true limitless being. So, while growing up, we need to develop a healthy sense of identity. In order to learn from our experience we also need to encounter identification with ideas, so these can be explored and found right or wrong, valid or nonsense.
In meditation we give all possibilities a break and, like all the parts which are running – whether that’s in a car or in our bodies – breaks are a great fine tuning tool, which invites energy to flow and find it’s own way to integrate. You don’t need to do a thing, but may notice surprising changes simply happening.
On the whole the brain can be compared to a computer. The brain itself being the hardware, the mind being the operating program and the conditioning, beliefs, stories, memories being the software.
As it is with computers, there’s stuff “inbuilt” that comes with the operating program and then we upload a lot of apps! When we are little the apps, the software is uploaded for us by others, we take the stuff in through hearing it. Later we begin to choose our own apps. At least that’s the illusion, because after all everything we apparently choose has also been made by the same mind that is offering or choosing it.
The “story of me” blows up and becomes something big that seems to need protection. One of the mind’s best features is to pretend that its content would need a lot of hard and solid wall protection – like the brain sitting in a skull. Thus the mind loves to create fear around any kind of change to the story.
It is exactly that protective fear mechanism that causes a lot of stress and unnecessary tension in us by putting fear above feeling, by keeping us from meeting directly in vulnerable and honest ways; simply being our unpredictable self in a multitude of possibilities, we try to produce some sort of defined, controllable person performance. Yes, it is great that we can remember our own name every morning and identify the daily life objects we deal with in an appropriate way. Yet, apart from those practical functions, we don’t need a story or definition of self. Simply being oneself is an endlessly surprising, exposing, humbling and unpredictable adventure. In discovering this to be a true possibility, we begin to appreciate ourselves as we are! In loving oneself, we also see those other human creatures just like us, being on the same journey. That journey doesn’t need rules and weapons. It needs the guts to explore, the willingness to act intelligently between science and perception and the ability to laugh with God about ourselves. What a joyful celebration is possible among humans on this planet – can you see!
WHAT TO WATCH in this cycle
the cycle starts with a “double shock point”.
PART 1 repeats the frequency input of 9 July: Being loved for who you are, not for what you do. The energy vibrates an invitation to look at workaholism and denial of any easy or good time. It’s usually a very future oriented attitude, looking at either material success or hoping for emotional gratification by proving one’s worthiness through being the best and hardest worker. O Dear! Do we know this one? Well, if like me you do, let’s sit back, relax, breath out, have a cuppa (that’s Aussie for a cup of tea or coffee) … dare to put your legs up, too?! Aaah! and let it be known to every one of our cells in the brain and the body: You are loved for who you are, not for what you do!
Even when that love seems absent at this time and the lover doesn’t have a face right now, you are loved for who you are. There’s one little place INSIDE YOU that always knows that. That’s a space within your own heart. Trust that. Try it. You’ll find it! The moment you stop believing you have to work extra hard to justify your existence. And if all that feels too easy or too difficult, take a friend’s hand, or your dog’s paw or your cat on your lap and listen to the love song that vibrates inside you. Welcome love, let’s give it a chance!
PART 2 (will repeat again on 4 August) hangs right in there with a similar theme of “never enough”. The idea that whatever I do and invest and give, the outcome never seems to be enough … Well, when you find yourself in that state, ask yourself “for whom” is it never enough?! Is that really your idea? How did this get into your identification app?!
A simple thing to understand is that we can only do and give what we can. More is simply not possible. The mind, society and other people plant these strange ideas into our heads about sizes, amounts and expectations of outcomes. We get so used to them, they become a solid belief. Yet, it is a pretend solidity. It’s just a look-like brick wall, made of paper, easy to tear down. Poke a hole in it and truth looks at you saying something like: thanks for doing what you did. You gave it all, well done! That’s it for now as it is. Here the good old saying goes: life is a divine play to be experienced, not a problem to be solved.
23 July (will repeat on 5 August)
This day sheds a light onto the dilemma of creativity knocking clearly on our doors and some mysterious foot on a brake, preventing creativity from happening. Many of us have experienced that one way or another. It’s really having the right idea and the skills and means to express it, knowing how to do it and that it’s great, useful, beautiful. But then you find yourself somewhow not moving, just thinking about it, unable to explain to yourself or anyone why your great creative potential isn’t really expressing.
Under certain circumstances, when we feel insecure, creativity may not easily flow. For creativity to really use you and take over as a flow of expression through you, you need to feel safe and sound in your life circumstances. When you don’t, that can be a reason for a blockage in the flow. Another and more common stopper is too much thinking, too much identification with our great ideas, rather than staying calm and curiously open to the flow that wants to happen on its own. The mind can get very impressed by its own ideas, so much so that it kills the aliveness of expression, which needs a certain amount of openness and reset to the origin of chaos for it to work.
The shock point energy today will illustrate whether or not and how much we are problem lovers or even creators! There’s that part in the mind that loves problems so much that it creates one, just to show how to overcome it and find solutions. For certain purposes, like software programming, such abilities are just great. For living your life, they get in the way of being a loving, flowing consciousness, in openness. By being too engaged on a mission of problem solving, we become rigid and stiff, we can hardly move at all and begin to behave as if we have to own whichever place we’re in right now. Originally we have just come here to explore, to grow, to play. Suddenly, everything in the vicinity has become an object of difficulties for solution finding.
That’s when we need to take a deep a breath, shake a bit, dance a bit, sing a song, get out of whatever armour it is we’ve put on and enjoy some simple living life again.
There’s that saying “he can’t see the forest because of all the trees”. That’s about someone who is so identified with all the stuff they are doing that they cannot relate with themselves or others any more.
It’s a pretty good description for the state in the nervous system, which might get triggered today.
It develops out of an identification that “only I can do this, make it right, I am needed, no one else can do the job” etc … When that sounds familiar, let it be known to every cell in your body and brain, that that’s not true. It never is. Yes you are unique and individually wonderful, but it isn’t true that you and you alone have to do it all and can not delegate. This is simply a bit much glue with self importance rather than with simple sense of self. At a time when you believed you had to prove your value by outgoing acts you may have slowly lost contact with feeling. By dropping some of the load you carry, by delegating a few jobs, the space around you will clear and you may experience a warm streak of self loving intention flowing through the body again.

This is in fact an “overlap shock point” from the next, upcoming, cycle: “Authentic Expression”. It may already play today. It all has to do with self doubt and how we compensate for it. A common way of compensating is to try and be on top of the situation or to beat others. Being better than the supposed enemy. It is a painful belief that fighting would keep us safe and afloat, while we actually lose connection with life and others. Usually we have so many “right” arguments on our mind that we convince ourselves of our superior position of righteousness and thus do not have to encounter the fragility and delicacy of not knowing, of being unsure, of sometimes just not having an orientation about what’s real and what’s not. We seek to be authentic, and when we cannot find sufficient role models to learn that from, a part inside freaks out about it and tries to replace the natural flow of life with what’s normal or knowledgable. Thus your original face and your authentic self distorts behind a mask, with a winner’s smile in having the last word. With some luck, you begin to notice that life repeats its invitation to you and offers you a hand in exploring together with others being the vulnerable, unknowable, real you.
