Why learn to split consciousness?

Relatively few human beings have mastered the ability of being physically in more than one place at once. This is the ability to create and maintain energy vibrations in two separate physical bodies. You might imagine this requires deep focus and much energy. This something to work toward if you choose.

At the same time, every being is capable of learning to split consciousness, that is, to have that part of self in more than one place at once. Why choose to develop such an ability?

1) Recall how your body is an integrated energy dynamic.

2) Awaken the hard drive of untapped abilities in the soul.

3) Check what is goes on where you physical body is not.

4) Explore synchrony as precursor to heightening sensitivity.

5) Use thought and vision to awaken telepathic ability.

6) Discover a range of existences beyond physical reality.

My question would be not why but how?
Why is kind of self evident, isn't it?
April 15, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBuddha of Hollywood
Buddha, an understanding of why always comes before the how. In truth, everything already exists. Everything is also self-evident. What is less obvious for many human beings is the process of dissolving misunderstandings about what is truly possible. If you are not doing something, then part of you disbelieves its possible or, lacks faith in your innate abilities. It is a process to discern your mind stumbling blocks and to remove your own veils. A good exercise is brainstorming what you believe is possible and why and what you believe in not and why. Reflect on the power of your reasoning. Why are you so convinced?

The first proof of success in astral travel, came when I was relaxing on my bed in a hotel room. I felt myself drift and I looked down at the top of the wardrobe. I could see a green marker pen.

The next day, I took a chair and looked on the top of the wardrobe. The green marker pen was there.

I hadn't looked at the top of the wardrobe before.

Liara, can you share the examples of such persons that mastered such rare skill? [yes, I am skeptical ;) ]
Hi dear Liara,

What an exciting topic.

For me, rather than a deep focus and intense energy, I have found that it takes a complete letting go of ego or what we humans often think of as "self". But, as you say, may in fact not be self at all but rather viels and misunderstanding.

Letting go of all thought and moving into our awareness or essence is a powerful experience. We become effortless beings. We are so much more than mere thought or the mind. We are a presence or "begingness" that is timeless and all expansive. But the ego likes to be in control, in charge. I have found that my true essence or awareness has little use for ego. Lol! When we can let go of all we might have thought was us, or still believe is us, and just "be", anything is possible. We become everything, ARE everything and can experience Life fully. There is a sweetness to letting go, the struggle is over, we are returning home, and above all such infinite peace. Love, Robin

PS I so enjoyed your about page when I clicked on your book cover. It was fun to see a picture of you. Although teeny tiney, I realized that you did not look like the woman on your website wearing the orange dress, sitting at the table. Lol!! Equally as beautiful, but a more modern version.

Hi Liara-

In my work I facilitate a group on energy, and how we are each sources of energy. Thanks for this post - and if I may impose - can you elaborate on your understanding of #2 - "awaken the hard drive of untapped abilities of the soul" thanks SO much.

Henry, the experience you describe may have seemed to occur out of nowhere. However, you initiated it and drew your attention to the truth of the matter by satisfying your awakened curiousity. Part of you has unwavering faith in rarely used, innate abilities. This part of you reveals glimpses of untapped potential. Other parts of you are not yet aligned enough to detach from fear, scepticism and dense thought. All the same, every part of the mind is orienting you to one cosmic truth.

Alik, not everyone who experiences astral dreaming writes about their experiences. Wisdom is often shared in oral and practical traditions from teacher to apprentice. The advancement of consciousness grows from self-directed learning, gradual or sudden mystical enlightenment, and different steps taken to uncover a path of inner knowing. This said, a variety of human beings write about astral experiences. You may choose to research astral, lucid and out-of-body experiences (OBEs) by various authors. Consult for introductory on-line courses and info on astral dreaming. In order to work with unseen sources and energies, it is helpful to develop insight through meditation. To attain a heightened sense of meaning, purpose and awareness in physical life provides foundation to externalize inner experiences.

Robin, just when a human being begins to recognize and explore the energy being within or Soul self, the universe creates situations to challenge, stretch and strengthen that inner energy. Just when a person begins to believe he lets go of attachments, he finds himself in a situation that evokes negative energy to humble him. As you say, timelessness and spacelessness are what exist, but ego refuses to accept this. Ego chooses to create alternative realities. As one learns to treat everything equally, this nurtures capacity for transparency and builds inner love and light. It also furthers self-understanding and a grasp of the imperceptible. A person has choices to believe in something or not. If one resists possibilities, then one is not ready for an evolutionary leap into consciousness or a shift into expanding paradigms of reality.

Thank you for the response and the resources you shared
Mama Zen, the learning curve is only ever limited by the ego mind. Each human being lives in a realm of apparent chaos and paradox. You adjust as you choose to everything. It is one's evolving or expanding view of reality that teaches when it is appropriate to bend apparent rules. You align with a higher sense of purpose or internal standards and rules conditioned from outside yourself. The idea of developing split-consciousness purely for ego-directed self -interest is not the point. Skills develop when a person is truly ready. You know this.

Gail, if you view the soul as a pre-programmed hard drive, like a computer, then physical existence invites one to align conscious levels with the untapped information that lies dormant within the self. To awaken is to gradually realize many energy levels exist in a grid. All grids interconnect. This explains how every thought and feeling affects every other thought and feeling. Individuals affect collective energy. Concentrated grid points have been identified at different physical location on this planet, yet concentrated energy points also exist in each physical body. Energy medicine outlines this in more detail.

Alik, every energy being is a student and a teacher. A spiritual teacher is not meant to transmit knowledge but to somehow trigger revelation in someone of his own pre-existing nature and inner knowing. That is not to say a spiritual mentor never offers insight or understanding. Yet, direct sharing of recipes for enlightenment is not the goal. Energy beings gain insight into spiritual ideas, but do not always sense the principles as part of inner being. You ingest what you need at a given moment to bring you closer to experiencing new facets of your own true nature.

Hi Liara,

This reminds me of lucid dreaming. The sensation of being in two places at once is marvelous. It is only the beginning of Soul travel. Even the vibration of a thought across town or in a far away land is possible when we are tuned into the source of all being.

I am not familiar with this skill. Is it some sort of deep meditation?
Alexys, lucid dreaming is being aware of dreaming when doing it. Being lucid does not mean you exert control over what is happening in a dream. Levels of awareness vary. Your level of awareness affects how much control you exert and what you change. Being conscious during dreams is often triggered by a cue, like something noticably missing in a familiar place or, discovering an extra limb or elastic digits. Lucidity teaches you dream worlds are not governed by laws of the physical world. One's freedoms are expansive and abilities limitless.

Astral projection is often assumed to occur through the solar plexus chakra (located around the belly button area). It is described visually from an outsider perspective, as if a clone of light rises out of your body. Its an energy being perceived as present next to your physical one. Advanced astral practitioners project consciousness for different purposes in dream realms and during life transitions.

Stacy, meditation raises self-awareness. One perspective is that whatever the mind does with awareness is a kind of meditation. Human beings have capacities to develop levels of consciousness. As you develop innate ability to strengthen more detailed dream recall, you are empowered to gain insight into different kinds of dreaming. As you nurture dream interest, you can learn techniques to progressively remember dreams on a regular basis. It is useful to cultivate diligence and patience. In doing so, you will evolve to naturally and consistently induce lucid dreaming and know what you do as you do it rather than only recall after awkaening. Its a meaningful process.

"Thank you" for taking the time to add light so I can more fully understand your words.

April 16, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterGail
I am interested in learning more of the how aspect. I fully believe in this ability to be conscious of multiple places, and I would like to practice this. Any place in particular you suggest I look so that I may learn?
