Whole Brain Thinking

I came across this writer while researching information about the Divine Feminine. She explains in this video how important it is for us to have the two sides of our brains in balance in order to use our mental and creative abilities to their full potential.

The first video is an introduction and the second demonstrates a practical exercise for obtaining whole-brain thinking.

I've done it twice and feel better already! I'll post another update after doing it for a week.

I've just been dancing around the garden to my own internal music like I used to when I was a child! I think I've found Joy again!

Wednesday update:  don't know if it's this brain-balancing technique but I've been feeling really great! Happy and chilled and loving!

'I am nature, the Universal Mother, 
Mistress of all the elements, primordial child of time,
Sovereign of all things spiritual,
queen of the dead, queen of the immortals,
The single manifestation of all gods and goddesses that are.
My nod governs the shining heights of Heaven, the wholesome sea-breezes,the lamentable silences of the world below. Though I am worshipped in many aspects, known by countless names, and propitiated in all manner of different rites, yet the whole round Earth venerates me.'

The Golden Ass, Apuleius (translated by Robert Graves).

Bridging the Gap (Unification of Polarity): Beltane to Summer Solstice 2018

In this video Magenta is talking about the apparent split between groups working for the liberation and evolution of humanity. In reality, there are many different groups of individuals with diverse views but with one common goal, which is to liberate humanity from the control structure that for millennia has denied us the realisation of our full potential. For the sake of simplicity, she talks about one group she calls the Indigos and the other she labels the Starseeds. Both groups see themselves as being in service to humanity but each carries out this work in different ways. Magenta says that despite their common goal, their different beliefs about the way to achieve it can cause division between them.

The first group she calls the Indigos and this term originally came from the perception of a woman, Nancy Ann Tappe, who had synesthesia, and saw the colour indigo when she looked at certain people. The Indigos are said to have characteristics that set them apart from others, such as a strong sense of personal sovereignty, meaning that they have a natural understanding of their innate rights as a human being, along with an ability to see through lies and a passion for truth and justice. They do not defer to authority without question. Any individual or organisation that claims authority must continually demonstrate their worthiness to occupy that position through their actions in order to maintain an Indigo's respect and compliance. These days, many established structures of authority are being exposed as corrupt and self-serving and it is those who carry the Indigo energy that are doing the exposing. Consequently, Indigos have been called "system busters". They are determined to tear down the system they see as rotten at its core in order to allow something better to take its place, and so that their grandchildren and great-grandchildren will have a better world to live in. Nancy Ann Tappe said of the Indigos in 2009, "The Indigos are just now beginning to get a new awareness of themselves. All Indigos will do this. Half of them have come to tear down a system. The other half has come to build one. Which one are you? Sometimes you have to tear down in order to build. Hopefully your intention is to build." The Indigos see themselves as warriors of light, fighting in a battle between light and dark. This is their life purpose, what they came here to do.

The other group Magenta calls Starseeds or Lightworkers. She says that they hold the Krystal energy and are gentle, peaceful and compassionate. Magenta says they have come here to be, to feel and to project energy and allow energy to flow through them. Many of them are healers, clairvoyants, channelers and spiritual teachers. Their life purpose is to teach and transmit the vibrations of love, compassion and forgiveness. Magenta says that they have a "beautiful humility which is not lack of ego, and it's not being a victim but being humble and being in surrender and not thinking of themselves as being above anyone else."

Although both groups talk about the Illuminati and the Cabal and both want to see humanity freed from the control system, they do not agree on the way to do it. The Indigos see the Lightworkers as ineffectual and impractical, living in a bubble of love and light, with no real understanding of the issues at hand and what needs to be done to effect change. On the other hand, the Lightworker community see the Indigo Truthers as too focused on the darkness of the corruption in politics, the sex trafficking and paedophilia. They would warn against giving energy to those unwanted things in the form of anger or disgust which they believe feeds those dark forces and allows them to continue to exist. As Magenta explains it, the Indigos would say that the Illuminati are bad and evil and must be stopped, "Why should we forgive them? They've destroyed us." But the Lightworkers would say, "Yes, but we need to forgive them because if we don't forgive them we're not going to be able to move into unity and oneness because they are us."

Magenta says that these opposing views divide the very people who are aware - what she calls the activated individuals. She says that in fact they are all Starseeds, both the Truthers and the Lightworkers, and that they are all here for the same reason. So the separation that exists between the two groups serves no one but the service-to-self negative forces whose objective has always been to create division in human society with the divide and conquer strategy.

So, Magenta asks what would happen if there was a unification between the two groups? If the Truther community, which includes the UFO researchers and other researchers of grounded 3D "real" world issues, was to begin to open its mind to the existence of higher dimensions and the Ascension. And what if the Lightworkers began to realise the importance of not running away from the evil deeds of the Cabal being uncovered by the Indigos, and instead realised the opportunity for growth it presents for them to integrate their own shadow aspect?

During the recent period of the pink full moon and Beltane is when Magenta says there was a stargate, a bridge, which contained the seed points for the unification. When this unification happens, she says, it will bring about the downfall of the Cabal/Illuminati control system because the merge between the two polarities of grounded 3D Indigos representing the male energy and 5D lightworkers representing the female energy will be too strong. She says that, "every single one of these Starseeds is so focused within the pineal gland visuals that they are creating together and that creates a reality, and so the focus, the trajectory, which has always been the same anyway, but just from a different perspective, the trajectory unifies."

What she seems to be saying is that the unification between the two polarities of the male Indigos and the female Lightworkers is the outward manifestation of the unification that is taking place within each of us of the inner marriage of the Twin Flames, the Divine Feminine and the Sacred Masculine, the matter and the anti-matter, the alchemical transformation of carbon-based to silicon/crystal-based DNA. The merge and integration of the polarities within us is what creates unity on the inner plane of reality which then must be reflected on the outward manifestation in the physical world.

The Cabal cannot survive unity as the only way they can control us is by causing division and separation. The unified power of our collective focus on first exposing them to the masses and then on a world where they do not exist will bring about their demise.

In cases of domestic abuse or bullying it is an important step when a person decides to cease being a victim and to take charge of their life and their destiny. It's time now for humanity to do the same.

Return to Religion

One of my students lent me a book, Return to Religion by Henry C. Link. He explained that it had been originally published in 1936, but just been reprinted this year in India. He lent it to me because of a conversation we were having about the importance of faith and he spoke about his Catholic faith and that he goes to church every Friday and Sunday. He said that going to church for him was important to do, even if he didn't feel like it. He was reminded then of this book whose author wrote that he goes to church because, although he hates to go, he knows it will do him good.

Henry Link says he wrote the book after working for many years as psychologist and discovering that his clients suffered from many typical problems and that after some time he realised that the advice he was giving them sounded like the Bible teachings he had learned when he was growing up. Despite his extensive education and experience in psychology, he found that the scientific language of his profession was inadequate. He states that it was neither clear nor practical enough to be applied to their real life situations. He found during the course of his work that he was reducing a set of scientific facts to a few simple precepts and that those precepts resembled the religious teachings he had abandoned as a young undergraduate student.

He explains that he had given up his religious beliefs and become an agnostic due to what he had learned in his university classes. In his classes of philosophy, he learned about the gradual replacement of religious faith for scientific facts, and in his classes about the history of the development of the Bible he learned about the way it had been rewritten by various individuals causing him to question its veracity. Finally, in his anthropology classes he learned that only provable scientific facts could be relied upon and that the existence of God was not a provable fact. He says that his student life led him to conclude that, "The more analytical a student, the more penetrating his search for truth, the higher his I.Q., the more likely he was to be stripped of his religious beliefs."

These kinds of Intelligence Quotient tests were being developed during the period of the writing of the book and as a psychologist he took part in much of the research, being responsible for their planning and supervision and with access to the results. Of these, he says that one of the findings was that the individuals who believed in religion or attended church had significantly better personalities than those who did not. He doesn't explain in what sense they had better personalities but we might conclude from the rest of the book what qualities he thinks make a good personality as discussed below.

A little disappointingly, the rest of the book is less about religion and his reasons for rekindling his faith and more about his clients' problems and the advice he gave them. But on occasions he does refer to the Bible passage that he believes informed his decision. He writes mainly about his view that his clients' problems stem mainly from introversion and a tendency towards solitary pursuits and his advice to them is that they should dedicate themselves to social activities such as playing sports, dancing, joining clubs and going to church. His intention is to encourage his clients to solve their problems by developing less selfish habits by dedicating themselves to spending more time with others and by learning how to make others happy become more selfless.

He says that, "By nature, the individual is selfish, and inclined to follow his immediate impulses. The personality tests and the clinical experience of psychologists prove conclusively that this road leads to introversion, to emotional instability and neuroticism, to intellectual futility, to maladjustment, to unhappiness. It requires religion, or something higher than the individual or even a society of individuals, to overcome the selfish impulses of the natural man and to lead him to a more successful and a fuller life." 

He advocates becoming an extrovert and claims that Jesus himself was one because he would make social contacts easily, talk to everyone he met regardless of who they were and was naturally altruistic. He says that Jesus preached, "meekness in spirit but boldness in action."

His overall message seems to be that what his clients lacked were the morals, values and sense of right and wrong held by those who receive a religious education while growing up. It appears that even his years of study and training as a psychologist were of less help to him than his own religious education when attempting to set his clients onto a better path in life. 

Although this book was first published 82 years ago it seems just as true today. In the western world, the overemphasis on the importance of scientific reasoning in education and the lack of any religious or moral education in many schools or homes has led to a decline in morality. Immoral behaviour such as lying, stealing, cheating, infidelity and promiscuity all seem to be more prevalent, more acceptable in some quarters and less shocking than in the past. Fashion and popular culture seem to positively encourage promiscuity as a right and freedom that should be indulged in regularly. The advances in technology have made it easier for people to be lazy and introverted if they are so inclined and the percentage of the population with depression and mental health problems is almost certainly higher than it was in 1936.

So what do these people who do not have a faith believe in? How do they find happiness and meaning in their lives? Do they never stop to ask what is this world we live in? Do they ever ask what is space, why are there so many stars and where does the universe end?

These are questions that I have no answers to. But I believe that the return to a spiritual life would help many who are suffering.
