CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “When Divine Source Knocks On Your Door — Pay Attention To Synchronicity”

Sometimes, it is not unusual to live or feel stuck at the time when we are not sure which opinion we should take, or which direction we should go, and which offer will be for our highest good. This can happen to every one of us — including you who are reading now.

Every one of us can get caught or stuck in a trap which will make us feel that we need to do, do and do. Well, we believe that this is entirely okay — pausing or reflecting for some time — in order to realize what is working and what is not working.

There is another saying or metaphor usually used for this: Sometimes, you will take the appropriate decision if you grab the oars and steer yourself to specific desires or goals. While in other times, it will also be appropriate to put those oars down in order to see at what place the river or current of life is taking you. This means “Living into the answer.”

So, when you go through periods of feeling caught up or stuck a little bit, you should take your time to meditate, pray or ask synchronicity for help.

Synchronicities, which are also known as coincidences, are the clear signs which indicate that our Divine source knocks on our door. There are times that it can be a nice and soft tap, but sometimes, where we do not pay enough attention, it may be quite a noisy or loud bang. But, a source which works through such synchronicities may manifest itself authentically.

Do you hear the same saying or phrase from more people during the day? Do you notice repeating numbers showing around you? Has your friend mentioned the person you have been thinking of right when he or she mentioned them? Have you ever met a person that seemed to have the answer to your question which you never asked yourself?

All of these are signs which indicate that you have to stop, be open, pay more attention, or more importantly, acknowledge that your Divine tries to send messages to you. With the help of synchronicities, there may also be people in your life who stepped into it unexpectedly. The influence of those people may lead you somewhere new, provide you with alternative understanding and change your entire life.

Here are a few tips about working with synchronicities:

When we pay more attention to or notice meaningful synchronicities or coincidences, it will be easier for them when it comes to increasing of their number in our life.

We should notice when we run into other people, or listen to their conversation because there may be some hidden messages for us.

If we have some problem in life, we should try to turn it over to synchronicity. Or, what we are supposed to say to our Divine Source would be to ask it to show us and let us be aware of or act when any guidance or answer is presented in front of us.

We are working with our journal or intuition in order to become more conscious when our source knocks on the door.

We have to believe that everything is possible, and even this is. Having our attitude positive is going to enhance our experience, while a negative one is going to shut the experience down.

Synchronicities usually act as mile markers or signposts that guide and direct us. They can also help us to align ourselves with our personal growth. We should be careful and notice when we are sent such signals, signs, patterns, articles, people, books, and so on.

Synchronicities are like small gifts. They are unique gifts which help direct us on our path towards our goals, so they may also help us follow the guidance of our soul.

JAMES HALLAHAN: “Dream Manipulation”

As the first consideration, it should be made clear that the traditional notion of the dream as “fantasy” is now, most assuredly, open to question. In light of what has been revealed with reality and the nature of multi-dimensional experience, it seems probable now that the dreamworld is in fact an aspect of our universe—a type of “non-physical” plane which our consciousness seems to have access to while in lower brainwave states.

Presumably, this is something analogous to the astral, perhaps contained within it, but with certain notable distinctions: There seems to be some kind of mechanism or energetic structuring which partitions it from that of the outlying regions, forming somewhat of an inter-realm between frequencies, which is in some measure exclusive to the individual. The reason for this feature is up for speculation. What seems most feasible is that this is something natural that functions almost as a kind of “safeguard”—containing the erratic manifestations of the subconscious and perhaps insulating us, to some degree, from the activity of the astral. The point here is that this is not just a matter of chemical activity within the brain; this is truly an area of reality which we are exposed to on a regular basis—and in which, I would argue, we are still without a very complete understanding. Considering that they likely play a fundamental role in our being, it would probably be wise to thoroughly investigate their nature and to perhaps re-examine the conventional wisdom to which we largely refer.

One of the central issues is of course the capacity that dreams have as a source of spiritual guidance. As mentioned, the dream-state allows conscious access to a non-physical plane, which, contrary to the physical plane, has a kind of fluid nature in which thought can manifest instantaneously into various forms of perceivable phenomena (imagery, sounds etc.). This essentially makes possible the conveyance of information. The reason the information is conveyed by way of symbolic imagery—rather than, for instance, English lettering—is presumably in part due to the extreme fluidity of the environment and its tendency to fluctuate from our emerging thoughts, which can distort words and actually change them into what we mistakenly perceive them as. Larger (pictorial) images, which we’re able to quickly recognize, are less susceptible to be altered in this way. So essentially what we’re looking at here with dream content, in large part anyway, is information that has been deliberately encoded into a format that is more suitable for the dream medium. The major question, which I think garners far too little concern, is where the information is coming from. Is it exclusively derived from the divine, via the higher-self? Or is it perhaps of more diverse origin?

The answer to the preceding question, however disagreeable it may be, seems far more likely to be the latter. As mentioned, the dream plane is likely intrinsic to the astral (or fourth dimension) and as is exceptionally known within alternative communities—it is inhabited. The spatial realms of the fourth dimension are replete with a diverse array of conscious (non-physical) entities—and their nature we must concede is, at best, dubious. We should bear in mind here that anything operating below fifth-dimensional status is likely not in complete accordance with Universal law. We know with certainty as well that deception is extraordinarily common and, owing to the current evolutionary phase, we’re certainly more liable to be interfered with. It therefore stands to reason that our approach to dreams should be that of maximum discernment. Further than that, we should perhaps explore the possibility that the dream plane is not exclusively under our own private control, but is perhaps subject to the same regulations as the astral or even the physical plane—entailing that it is still a collective environment and therefore able to be influenced (or manipulated) by outside intelligences, without constituting as any kind of transgression or infringement of sovereignty.

The idea of dream manipulation, though I’m introducing it as hypothetical, is certainly more than just speculation. I think that with just a cursory examination its legitimacy is quickly uncovered. To begin with, there are surely countless numbers of individuals who can attest to dreams that clearly exhibited an overt malignancy—not simply a foreshadowing of misfortune—but rather a definite pernicious display which tends often to incite emotional distress and worry. Of course, what immediately comes to mind when suggesting this is the “nightmare”—and along with it the notion of its commonality and our perception of them as being altogether natural. This seems on the surface to be common-sense, however, the foundation of this belief is of course stemming from the orthodox conception, which we all now know to be without basis. From an informed perspective, bearing in mind what we’ve just covered, it is entirely conceivable that nightmares, for as back as we’ve known them, may very well be, at least in part, the result of deliberate psychic manipulation. I’m certainly not suggesting that this is uniformly the case or that a negative mindset, carried into the dream, could not manifest frightful imagery—but I do feel confident to suggest here that a substantial percentage of them are in fact being externally generated. Add to this, incidentally, the fact that “nightmare” derives from the Middle English word “mare”—denoting “female evil spirit”—and likewise that ancient cultures, almost unanimously, thought of bad dreams as being the result of negative spiritual influences, attributed directly to negative (or demonic) spirits.
This premise, for some anyway, will likely give rise to a certain degree of doubt. Not only does it entail an enormously widespread effort to generate fear and distress, but clearly suggests as well a kind of coordinated strategy at work—which, very significantly to my point, strongly indicates that there is significant organization. These features, it should be pointed out, very much contradict the common portrayal of entities being propagated by mainstream paranormal enthusiasts. The negative entity, as conveyed by these enthusiasts, is essentially that of a mindless, roving beast who attacks seemingly at random for no purpose other than to self-satisfy. In response to this, I would suggest that this is perhaps far off the mark. In truth, when we closely analyze the various components of what we can observe of their actions, there’s clearly a level of sophistication here that hints at something much more than bestiality. What we’re really dealing with here, I would think unquestionably, are advanced intelligences—possessing, in most cases, a more proficient understanding of reality than that of humans. From this, I feel that the following can be speculated:

  1. The underlying reason for dream manipulation is probably relatively obscure and more complex than we would initially suppose.
  2. The deceptive techniques which are incorporated into the dream are likely highly developed and very skillfully concealed.
  3. The overall agenda is of perhaps a much broader design of which dream manipulation is only one small aspect.

Now as for the purpose behind dream manipulation, I would say it’s clear that there are at least several different underlying reasons. Perhaps one of the most apparent would be the potential it has to influence our manifestation capacity. To illustrate what I mean, I will draw the reader’s attention to the following subject: It is fairly well recognized that a substantial number of the spiritually-minded hold the view that dreams carry a kind of prognostic significance. This notion is of course justified as we do possess a multi-dimensional constitution which enables a capacity to transcend time and space boundaries—which does in fact happen during the course of sleep. However, we should maybe question whether this is exclusively the cause behind prophetic dreams. I would point out first that such dreams are more often than not a kind of simulated (or symbolic) representation of the portended event—and not the actual event. How do we then account for this disparity? To speculate: perhaps it is the higher-self who is actually witness to the event and that it is then reconstructed as a dream—which, with this interpretation, suggests that precognitive experiences are not accidental and are divinely intended. If we’re to premise this, we should ask the question of why these prognostications are necessary. What function or purpose do they serve?

With respect to this, we can perhaps query the notion of prophetic dreams as being a kind of “advance notice”—given so that we may circumvent certain outcomes. This is a questionable supposition because of course it is common understanding that the vast majority of our dreams do not come true and, apart from that, are never known to be prognostic until the moment of fruition. Because of this, it is unlikely that a pre-emptive action would ever be taken on account of a dream. In addition, this “opportunity of circumvention” seems perhaps slightly at odds with what is normally understood of divine intention. If every experience, positive or negative, is divinely intended and has been calculated to be precisely what is needed for our advancement—then giving any kind of notice, or ability to circumvent, seems maybe inconsistent with this. In addition, there’s also the fact that a certain percentage of them foretell what seem to be very trifling occurrences, leading some to believe that the dreams are inadvertent—and due simply to our multidimensionality.

Due to these uncertainties—and the potentiality of extensive dream manipulation—we should maybe entertain some alternative possibilities: As most are aware by now, entities, from their perspective in the fourth dimension, have the notable advantage of being able to see potential future timelines and are thus bestowed with the means to predict future events. Given this fact, there is little doubt that this is something they would attempt to profit from. In regard to the idea of influencing manifestation—which requires the inducement of beliefs and anticipation of outcomes—the widespread notion of dreams having a predictive quality would certainly constitute as a favorable condition towards this aim. If we believe that our dreams may have some bearing on future events, then naturally this will, in some cases, give rise to a degree of expectancy (even if slight)—and thus have a latent impact on what we manifest. Because of this, we can perhaps speculate that such entities (who engage in these endeavors) would have within their interests the object of reinforcing this belief and perhaps dispersing more evenly. Could it perhaps be a possibility that organic prophetic dreams are less common than we have thought? Could the prevalence of prophetic dreams potentially be attributed to a manipulative design—intended to facilitate an avenue of influence over our creative capacity? There may be enough basis here to at least consider this as a possibility.

What may be consistent with this is the fact that prophetic dreams seem predominantly to be negative. What they most commonly prognosticate are adverse circumstances, frequently involving death or terrible accidents—very much akin to “nightmares”. If we’re looking at this from the angle that they’re intended and not accidental—why then would this be the case? We know there is small probability for avoidance; we know that apprehension can bring us more vibrationally in line with negative outcomes; we also know, with certainty, that negative emotions (stimulated by such dreams) can adversely affect our energy field. This is not to say that there could be no legitimate reason for them, but only that there are valid questions needed to be asked, so that we can better ascertain the source of this phenomenon.

Touching back on our collective attitude towards dreams, we must admit that we do in fact have a latent sensitivity regarding their content. We are affected by them and, when unfavorable, they do at times cause varying degrees of concernment. It must be noted that this sensitivity is not limited to the spiritually-minded but is present, to some degree, in perhaps the majority of the human population. Accentuating this, I’ll briefly highlight a conversation I had with my sister (who is not spiritual) just a few weeks back: She remarked that she had a dream the previous night where she was in a car accident and had overturned her car. I asked her, before anything else, how it made her feel. Widening her eyes slightly, she responded “Like I might be in some kind of car accident!” … I think we should reflect on this and bear in mind that this kind of reasoning is not uncommon—and maybe not accidental. Lastly on this, I will just point out that I am not suggesting that prophetic dreams, in and of themselves, are necessarily a bad thing—but rather that an artificially induced inflation of their numbers (if they are in fact naturally infrequent) may precipitate an undue sensitivity regarding their significance—which, as I say, could be seen as favorable to the agendas of dream manipulation. Please note that, at present, this is only speculation. I am simply presenting, for the sake of open inquiry, an alternative hypothesis from which we can draw our own conclusions.

As another motive for dream manipulation, which could perhaps be the overarching reason, we should consider the principal source of sustenance required by dark entities. Peculiar as though it may be, it seems that the nourishment needed by such entities takes the form of negative (low-vibrational) emotional energy. The reason for this is presumably that, through some dubious feat, they have somehow managed to actually disconnect themselves from source-creator and thus have effectively rendered themselves cut-off from life-force energy. I suspect this wasn’t actually due to their being “banished”, but rather that their energy fields, through their own actions, had reached a virtually incompatible wavelength with the background cosmic energy. And now, in order for the continuation of their existence, unsuspecting host systems have to be found and clandestinely converted into production facilities—which is essentially a process of downgrading energy to a frequency that is in sympathy with their own vibration. Obviously, once a source has been secured, the procedure would likely be to optimize its output, using any and all means to increase fear-based emotion and—most fundamentally—the negative manifestations which give rise to it.

As to the role that manipulated dreams play in this, I would say it’s self-explanatory that the nightmare not only generates fear, but perhaps a relatively potent form of it. Excluding people who live in, for instance, war-torn or dangerous parts of the world, it is probably nightmares that give rise to fear the most often. I have to say, for myself anyway, that nightmares are really the only time that I experience fear. And I should remark here, considering my own dreams at least, that there are definitely indications that some of them are purposefully designed to do just that.

I cite here my persistently recurring dreams of being stranded in inescapable darkness—one of which, the most noteworthy of them all, occurred conspicuously the night of my last birthday: As usual, I suddenly find myself in my house in complete darkness—although this time there’s an unusually foreboding atmosphere and, to my perplexity, I find that all my appliances are amiss; my fridge is wide open; my oven has been pulled away from the wall; there’s an overly large trash bag in the middle of the floor (which I was uneager to open); and, most portentously, my television has been turned on. Immediately persuaded that this was paranormal activity, I rush in an attempt to turn on the lights, but as usual I’m foiled in this as the power has been cut-off. As regularly unfolds, I bewilderedly struggle to find a source of light, discovering every contrivance to be mysteriously dysfunctional (even candles)—except this time, quite unprecedentedly, I find when I awaken that my real television has surprisingly been turned on, moderately loudly, to an irregular music station which, I further noted, was playing an exceptionally disagreeable tune.

The preceding dream, for the record, exemplifies what I think are some of the classic hallmarks of an “overt” manipulated dream, which I would characterize as a sort of mischievous trickery; however, as far as a fear producing dream, this of course in no way typifies their standard form. Some of them, which surely many can bear witness to, are to a far degree much more malicious. For the record, I have evaluated the dream in the sense of it being natural and symbolic, however, due to its association with the subsequent paranormal event, there seems a strong likelihood that this was attributable to manipulation.

Returning to the idea of their generation of fear, I would also draw attention to the fact that most dreams go unaccounted for—perhaps as much as 95% of them. So the impression we have that only a small amount of dreams incite fear is perhaps not substantiated. We could really only speculate as to how many dreams are actually fear producing and, as should be pointed out, even the most acute and severe nightmares, as I have discovered myself, can go entirely under the radar and all memories of them rendered completely irretrievable. In addition, we should bear in mind that fear is only one particular variety of negative, low-vibrational emotion. We should contemplate all off the other dream scenarios which evoke negative emotions other than fear—of which there are undoubtedly plenty. Furthermore, it should be made clear that I am not at all suggesting that manipulated dreams are the primary stimulus of negative energy, but rather, as I alluded earlier, are probably more intended as a supplementary derivation, used with the aim of elevating it to more optimal levels.

The last practicable reason for dream manipulation, which is likely to be the most incontrovertible, would be as a means to corrupt one’s spiritual guidance. In regard to this, it should be taken for granted, given the methods of the opposition, that virtually every source of multidimensional information will be seized upon and compromised using advanced methods. It follows from this that the procedure used in evaluation of dream material would necessarily have to be up to par with such refined techniques. I would think it should be somewhat comprehensive and, of course, gauged according to what we understand of higher dimensional principles—Is its guidance in complete accord with oneness? With this being said, I would further suggest that it needs to be somewhat analytical and not entirely based on intuition. My estimation is that they have taken intuition into account—and have likely devised ways to circumnavigate its perusal. One such method—which is universal and could certainly be applied to dream content—is to immerse the deceptive portion of information into an overall context containing distinguishable truths. This would mask the disinformation and through sensing the validity of the surrounding information may potentially cause your intuitive faculty to misfire and resonate as genuine truth. In view of this, I would consider some minor analysis advisable—not to exclude intuition—but to supplement it so as to fail-safe against such techniques.

So with dream-based guidance, depending on the wariness of the individual, the foremost role of the corruptive entity I should think would be to maintain the belief that the source of information behind the dream is secure. This would naturally be a very delicate task of implanting dream content which always, on the surface, seemed to be benevolent and never going too far with the corruptive elements so as to not arouse suspicion. As I’ve touched on in the preceding, it would be to package the deception into a very wholesome, auspicious-looking dream, however, the intendment of the message (if correctly deciphered) would divert the individual away from his true interests. One of the most common tactics to corrupt guidance in this way is to introduce “distractive” elements.

To illustrate what I mean, say for instance a novice spiritual initiate goes to see a medium for a reading. Completely unbeknownst to the initiate (and the medium as well), the entities which are channeling the information are clever imposters who, through a sleight of hand, reveal to him that he is none other than the long-awaited reincarnation of King Tut. Intrigued, but in no way convinced of this, the initiate leaves and during his sleep that night (unaware that dreams can be manipulated), is bestowed with imagery of pyramids, obelisks and hieroglyphics—and upon awakening is seen as glorious confirmation that after all he was indeed the long-awaited King Tut. And thus, instead of focusing on genuine spiritual attainment, he embarks on a long drawn-out journey to rediscover his past as Tutankhamen—much to the satisfaction of the entities.

Where dream deception gets a lot more complex is in situations where the dreamer is aware of the reality of manipulated dreams. In such situations, what seems to unfold is that the entities will attempt to shape your impression of what “the manipulated dream” looks like. Depending on the individual, they will first hold fast to the hope that you retain the impression of manipulated dreams being exclusively negative in appearance. They’ll likely very early on deliberately stage a few “transparent” manipulated dreams, which will be negative and which you will latch onto and form a conception as to the tell-tale features of a manipulated dream. And thereafter, you will evaluate the authenticity of dreams based on these learned clues. Unbeknownst to you, however, the entities had all along possessed the means to replicate the exact characteristics of any quality of dream, even the most benevolent in nature. So, by and large, it seems as though their procedure is to gradually condition our perception of dreams with the overall aim of camouflaging their deception. In addition to this, once the dreamer has been primed in this way and is consciously looking for the “false” clues of a manipulated dream, the entities may then attempt to undermine your legitimate dream guidance by using a process which can be referred to as “earmarking”. How it is achieved is through duplicating whatever your genuine advisements would be and then attaching to them certain details which will cause you to suspect its origin. Such details could encompass a variety of things, but are usually slightly ignoble elements, based in materiality and unreflective of higher principles. Ultimately what this results in is a disregard for your legitimate objectives—or at the very least confusion.

In return to the overall subject of dream manipulation, an important question that we should feel compelled to answer is—to what extent are our dreams being manipulated? If we know they have the capability; if we know they’re already engaged in it; if we know they have rather strong motivations for doing so—then what safeguard is there to prevent their dominance over the dream landscape? Moreover, what reason would they have to refrain from it? I’m not presupposing this is our situation, but in such a scenario, deeper questions would need to be explored. In particular, it seems fairly demonstrative that there is an inverse permeation that occurs with our conscious experience in the dream plane. To explain: It is fairly well recognized that our conscious experience in the real-world filters into the dreamworld via our subconscious. However, I feel confident in asserting that there’s clearly an observable transference which occurs in the other direction. Quite simply, our experience in the dreamworld has an influence on our consciousness in the real world. This is exhibited clearly when we notice how different we feel in the morning after having a pleasant dream compared with that of a nightmare. This may seem obvious, and perhaps pointless to some, however, in light of dream manipulation, it has all new meaning and relevance.

The implications of this became clearly recognizable to me on the following occasion: I was in the midst of an important spiritual practice where one willfully abstains from sensory pleasure with the aim of vibrational enhancement. I intended to go for at least a month with this and near to the halfway point, unsurprisingly, there came a climax of discomfort. I started to rationalize throwing in the towel, although, for the most part, was successfully maintaining. However, very conspicuously at this low-point, I was besieged with a series of exhilarant dreams, full of excitement and people, and very markedly centered around material indulgence. Upon waking from these, I was completely saturated with this desire to go out and luxuriate in material pleasures. It was however no doubt spiritually inadvisable and of course irrational, because I had already embarked on this practice and would have rendered it null not going through with it the whole way. Nevertheless, my mindset was so significantly altered from this, and the urge so strong, that I deviated anyway—and in so doing careened way of my spiritual path, as I didn’t recommence with the practice for at least another month. So ultimately what this seemingly benign dream ended up facilitating was the complete derailment of my primary spiritual endeavor—at which I would have been naïve not to realize as having been calculated.

So essentially what I’m hypothesizing here is that there may be a hidden subversive element to dreams that has so far gone largely unaccounted for. If it was in fact the dream which drove me off course, then what we have here, more or less, is a subtle form of mind-control. The dream engendered a particular frame of mind which was clearly used in deliberation of swaying my decision making. Additionally, the fact that it was premeditated suggests that such methods have already been in use. In consideration of this, it may be worthwhile to think carefully about the extent of how this could be utilized and its overall implications. If, as I’ve suggested as a possibility, our dream scenarios are often being tampered with by interdimensionals, and we’re submersed in these scenarios eight hours of every day, then perhaps there exists, to some degree, the possibility of conditioning (or subconscious programming). Reflecting on this, I would remind the reader that virtually the totality of dream experience is lost to conscious memory, however, still exists alive and well within the subconscious and, as would certainly be agreed, has a latent impact on our psychological condition. I’m certainly not prepared to draw any far-reaching conclusions, but as I think I’ve pointed out, there are reasonable grounds here which suggest this is something perhaps worthy of our attention and further investigation.

In conjunction with this topic, I would like to focus attention on the particular characteristics of the dream state of consciousness, which I feel sheds an important light on the nature of dream manipulation and perhaps the mechanism by which it is enabled. When we actually take stock of our awareness while in the dream, there are many peculiarities which should be given some consideration. Overall, what’s particularly noteworthy is the nebulous and shifting nature of our focus and attention span. It’s rather as if our awareness is perpetually fading in and out—acutely aware of something in one instant, yet, in the next, has shifted entirely to something else, leaving all recollection of the previous moment by the wayside. What seems to be driving our sporadic attention is this incessant and irregular stream of thoughts, which on some level appear to be fairly random, however, when broadly examined, clearly show a definite design and planning behind them. Ultimately, and rather interestingly, these emerging thoughts always appear to be generating the outline of a theme or story; a story which very often is curiously unreminiscent of our ordinary knowledge and experience. When seriously scrutinizing these stories, I’m not very inclined to agree that it’s only a matter of subconscious defragmenting. There’s too much that’s extraneous; too much that’s of a recondite nature and inconsistent with the human mind. As for the higher-self, I’m not discounting this source, but for it to be solely derived from there seems questionable, as there are just too many aspects of dreams that are unreflective of higher-dimensional attributes. In consideration of this, I would say it’s hardly implausible to suggest that, in some cases, this stream of thought which is shaping the stories is actually being telepathically projected from an outside source.

As is widely known now, the human mind possesses a natural telepathic capability, which essentially entails the faculty of more or less that of a radio receiver. As a consequence of this, we’re openly subjectable to externally originated thought-forms. For the most part, this isn’t easily perceptible because of the high activity of our normal brainwave state, which, because of its quick oscillation, congests our mind to the point of being non-receptive. However, as we descend into sleep our brainwave frequency slows down and we become increasingly receptive to outside thought-forms. Considering this reality and our obvious vulnerability in not being aware of it, it’s likely this avenue of influence would be exploited. In vindication of this, I’ll briefly highlight a particular moment in a dream where I had apparently been asked about my broad views of society: It was by a girl named Lauren, and I have little recollection of the context, but, as my response, I proceeded to give her a quite detailed philosophy but which, astoundingly, was in no shape or form resemblant of my own views. I suspect there must have been calculation with this, as these views were not only objectionable to me, but were the very views of which I disapprove the most. It was essentially that of the “cut-and-dry” logic, typical of authoritarianism. I remember saying something along the lines of: “The biggest problem with society is the overburden of lazy and unproductive people”—to which I was absolutely stunned in recollection of. Even more curious, and which should not be passed off, was the fact that at no point during this discourse did I ever recognize my extremely uncharacteristic behavior. In review of this—underscoring the distinctive and tell-tale sentiment of the above—it seems more than probable that this was originating from a lower-vibrational intelligence. Moreover, it’s conceivable to me that this may very well be one of the central mechanisms by which dreams are being manipulated. Very craftily, it is being done from the inside out. Thoughts are being projected inward and, through our own agencies, are then manifested outward into the dream.

In closing, we can perhaps conclude here that the conventional model of dream philosophy is, to some degree, incomplete. The reality of dream manipulation is a crucial factor and is most certainly a game changer. Many of us not only take dreams seriously but are consciously deriving information from them, which is then at times implemented into a course of action. It is therefore perhaps important that we are taking into account the possibility of deception. The notion of setting an intention, which could work to some benefit, may not negate entirely the potential of outside influence. It may turn out that there are clever loopholes with this, and as I’ve mentioned the dream plane may still technically qualify as a collective environment, entailing that we may not be capacitated to disallow communal manifestation—just as in third dimensional reality. Furthermore, I think we should acknowledge the fact that dreams are undoubtedly a means of influence over our manifestation capacity, and that our limited awareness of dream manipulation is primarily what enables this. By becoming streetwise to manipulation, we are in a better position to discern their validity and less likely to be swayed by dreams that seem to denote negative portent—which, with many, are a frequent occurrence. On a final note, I would suggest that we remain opened-minded with dreams and continue to explore alternative ideas. Let us not go the way of the mainstream and become rigid in our thinking, dismissive of possibilities which we have not yet endeavored to rule out.

MATEO SOL: “7 Gut Instincts You Should NEVER Ignore”

In order to fulfill your spiritual purpose in this life, you’ve got to walk the path less traveled.

And to walk the path less traveled, you have to embrace your inner wolf.

It is your inner wolf that will guard, guide, and protect you with courage, integrity, and intelligence.

But here’s the thing: in order to embrace your inner wolf, you’ve got to listen to your gut instinct.

The problem is that our gut instincts are often polluted by fears, prejudice, and mental clutter.

In this article, I want to share with you the seven gut instincts you should never ignore. You’ll also learn how to differentiate the voice of fear from the voice of primal wisdom.

What is the Gut Instinct? 

Your gut instinct is the physical reaction you have to the world around and inside of you.

When you experience an overwhelming “gut feeling,” your body is carrying out a primal response to subconscious information. The ultimate purpose of your gut instinct is to protect you. As your gut instinct is the most ancient and primal “sixth sense” you have, it is the one you can rely upon the most.

One example of your gut instinct in action would be deciding to spontaneously avoid walking down a road at night because something “feels off.” That feeling is your gut instinct warning you that danger is afoot. You may then glimpse an intimidating gang of men down the street as you hurry by — your gut instinct has just saved you from potentially being robbed, beaten up, raped, or worse.

How Does Gut Instinct Work? (and Why You’re an Animal)

Put simply, your body is like the television screen on which your subconscious (the radio waves) transmits its information. When you can learn to read your body, you can learn to accurately tune in to your gut instinct.

We human beings like to believe ourselves to be separate from animals. Yes, we might be more sophisticated. But at our core, we are still animals — human animals. Our primal impulses and evolutionary origins don’t just disappear because we sit and read the newspaper each morning or wipe our asses with lavender-scented toilet paper.

As noted by anthropologist Clifford Geertz:

… man is an animal suspended in webs of significance he himself has spun.

Rather than get hoity-toity about the fact that we’re only really advanced animals, why not embrace it? By honoring the wisdom of the subconscious mind and its impact on the body to produce ‘gut instinct’ we can save ourselves from a lot of suffering. (This has been proven by the way.)

What’s the Difference Between Gut Instinct and Intuition?

Gut instinct and intuition are often used synonymously. And, yes, they are interconnected. But they aren’t quite the same.

So what’s the difference?

Put simply, gut instinct is your primal wisdom. Intuition is your spiritual wisdom. We need both if we are to walk our spiritual paths with courage and intelligence.

Intuition is very cerebral — it is a calm and clear sense of “knowing.” On the other hand, gut instinct is very visceral and physical — you feel it in your body.

Intuition can be expressed through the body, and the gut instinct can be expressed through intuitive knowing. But generally, both are clearly discernable and strikingly different in their experience.

Also, gut instinct is much more emotional and reactive (as it is wired in the primal brain), whereas intuition is more neutral and calm.

Examples of Gut Instinct

Some call it a “hunch,” others an “inkling,” but in this article, we’ll refer to it as the gut instinct. Here are some examples that are taken from the animal kingdom and human (animal) behavior of gut instinct:

  • A herd of zebra sense danger while grazing. They cannot see the lions lurking in the surrounding savannah, but something is distinctly “off.” One zebra whinnies and the herd begins galloping away vigorously.
  • A herd of elephants meander through the deserts in search of water. Instinctively they know what direction to move in to find their sustenance.
  • A cat sits on the edge of a three-story house and wants to find a way down. She slinks over to the edge and stares at the ground apparently about to jump — but then changes her mind. She climbs down to the first story roof and then makes the jump, apparently aware on an instinctual level that jumping from any higher distance would injure her.
  • A person approaches you at a bar wanting to flirt with you. You start reciprocating, but something feels wrong. You sense a predatory quality about this person. You don’t trust them. You excuse yourself and leave.
  • Two hikers get lost on a trail within the mountains. Without a compass or any way to determine a direction back to camp, they sit silently and tune into the surrounding trees. Suddenly one of them points to the west, “I have a feeling that is the way back!” An hour later they have made it back to home base.
  • You’re driving down a highway at night. Suddenly, the impulse overtakes you to change lanes immediately. You obey the impulse, and a couple of seconds later miss a large spike of glass that could have punctured your tire and rendered you stranded on the side of the road.
  • A young woman is sitting in class at college. Out of the blue, she feels the strange impulse to return home. She ditches the class and catches a taxi, a pit of dread looming in her stomach. When she arrives home, she finds her mother on the floor having a heart attack. If she had ignored her gut instinct, her mother would have most likely died alone.
  • A man has two job offers. One of them pays less, and the other pays more. Logically he would choose the job that pays more, but he can’t shake the knot of dread that forms in his stomach every time he considers accepting the higher paying offer. He decides to choose the job that pays less. Two months later, he is relieved that he chose the right offer as the higher paying company went out of business due to a high profile lawsuit.

I hope you now have a good idea of how the gut instinct operates!

Signs You’ve Experienced a Gut Instinct

Pay attention to these signs:

  • A sudden feeling of dread or fear (that is out of context)
  • A strong urge to do something (feels like an inner nudge or pull)
  • Full-body chills, goosebumps or “tingles” up the spine
  • Nausea or physical uneasiness
  • Sudden hypervigilance (or being on “high alert”)
  • A clear and firm voice within you instructing you to do/not do something

You might experience all of these signs at once or only one or two of them.

Is it Fear? Or is it Your Gut Instinct?

Don’t get them confused!

But also, don’t worry if you have already. Chances are you were never taught about the difference between superficial mental fears and true gut instinct.

The mind can easily fool us, particularly when it comes to gut instinct. After all, we feel our emotions within our body. When you’re scared, you most likely get clammy hands, butterflies, and an increase in heart rate, right?

In a similar fashion, when we experience a gut instinct, we also receive physical sensations.

So how on earth can we distinguish between the two?

My response is to pay attention to your mind. What is the quality of your thoughts? Is your mind racing, frantic, or chaotic? If so, you are experiencing fear.

On the other hand, if your mind is relatively neutral, but your body is experiencing strong reactions (like a sense of impending doom for instance), you are experiencing a gut instinct.

In other words, when you need to distinguish between the voice of fear and your gut instincts, always turn your attention to your mind.

Why?

Gut instincts are spontaneous — they arise out of the blue. They don’t have time to build-up in the brain, therefore, the brain is relatively still and neutral. There is no “hmm, should I? Shouldn’t I?” going on. There is just an immediate DO THIS/DON’T DO THIS.

Fears, on the other hand, build-up. They are typically more vague, nagging, unclear, and tumultuous. If your mind is spinning, if your thoughts are everywhere, you are experiencing fear, not gut instinct.

7 Gut Instincts You Should NEVER Ignore

Obviously, you must be the judge. But there are some situations in life where your gut instincts shine the most.

While it’s easy to brush off most nagging sensations, please never ignore the following ones:

1. “I’m in danger”

Remember that your gut instincts reflect what your subconscious mind already knows. Although you may not be able to pinpoint what exactly the danger is, please listen to this inner warning. It could be the difference between life and death.

2. “They’re in danger”

Yes, you might sound like a lunatic. Yes, you might feel embarrassed or perplexed. But if you genuinely feel that someone is in danger, tell them. You have nothing to lose. You might just prevent the person from making a big mistake or endangering themselves.

3. “This isn’t the right choice”

If you get a strong and clear feeling that what you’re doing isn’t right, pay attention. Even if there is no moral or logical reason why you should be feeling that way, take heed.

4. “I need help”

Your gut instinct doesn’t only warn you of danger, it also helps to preserve your emotional wellbeing. If you receive a strong sensation that you need help (whether physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually), seek it out. Don’t linger.

5. “I need to help them”

At some point in our lives, the overwhelming desire to help someone will arise. There may not be any rational reason why. The other person may appear to be perfectly fine on the surface. But don’t let appearances deceive you. Have a conversation with the person. Ask them how they are. This might make you feel vulnerable or uncomfortable, but you will at the very least make the person feel special, and at the most potentially save their lives.

6. “Something feels off in my body”

Unless you’re a hypochondriac (which is unlikely), your gut instincts rarely lie about the state of your health. If a sudden strong and clear desire arises to see a medical professional, do it. Get a full health assessment, and even if nothing comes up, feel proud of yourself for practicing self-care.

7. “This is it!”

Often when the perfect life calling, spiritual path, job, house, decision, option, etc. comes along, your gut instinct will immediately notify you. If you receive a strong and clear feeling that practically screams “YES” don’t ignore it! This is one of the most important reasons why it’s essential to listen to your gut instinct. It could be the difference between making a life-fulfilling choice and a soul-starving decision.

Trust Your Gut

So long as you’re able to distinguish between the voice of fear and the spontaneous feelings of your gut instinct, it is safe to trust your gut.

Trusting your instincts is an invaluable life skill and one that will tremendously benefit you on the spiritual path. After all, this instinct is built into our very DNA, so why not make the most use out of it?

As a final recommendation, I suggest practicing mindfulness meditation if you struggle to trust your gut. Mindfulness meditation will help you to become aware of your thoughts and body sensations. The more awareness you can develop, the easier it will be to make the distinction — it will become second-nature to you.

GAIA: “7 Things That Are Blocking Your Spirit Guides”

Your angels, spirit animals and spirit guides in general are supposed to be connecting and communicating with you, offering guidance for your life and acting as a source of light and encouragement. If you aren’t experiencing this, what’s the problem? As it turns out, it’s probably largely you yourself that stands in your own way, as well as the way of your spirit guides! Everything from your attitude to even the things that you eat can affect the connection with your spirit guides.

Never fear, however, there are a lot of things you can do in order to open the channels again. You are the problem, and you are also the solution.

Here are seven common problems that almost everyone faces. Of course, there are many more that you may discover in your own journey, so take these as a beginning point of examination and take a good look at your own heart and lifestyle:

INEXPERIENCE

So you’re new to the spiritual work game. That is no big deal! However, it can trip you up a little if you don’t know what you’re doing.

The best practice is to not do much at all! Keep an open heart and mind, of course, but learn to relax your mind, perhaps through a daily meditation, hold onto your patience and keep your expectations realistic.

You can also practice heightening all of your senses and increasing your awareness. Again, don’t constantly be on the lookout, but instead open the channels of your receptiveness.

DISORGANIZATION

You attract what’s around you. Is your home a big pile of clutter with random objects lost in the fray? Is your desk even visible under those stacks of who-knows-what? The state of your affairs can reflect your heart. This is why space clearing is so important in Feng Shui. Clean space, clean spirit!

That’s the kind of spirit and environment that your guides are attracted to. Make things as easy as possible on them and create the most appealing, welcoming atmosphere to them, and let them get to work.

EXPECTATIONS

Waiting for a gigantic sign with life directions to fall out of the sky and hit you on the head… literally? It’s time to move on and instead focus on your bond with your guides.

You never know how your guides will contact you, and by setting your expectations even really high, you’re putting them in a box and limiting yourself more than anything. Sometimes the gestures will be big and grand; other times, they will be just mere feelings, gentle whispers in your heart or your ears, or a fleeting visual. Sometimes, these signs are even more powerful than a huge clap of thunder!

Find the small signs, and the big ones may or may not come. It doesn’t matter! Once you connect with your guides, you’ll realize that the sign and the journey with the spirits itself is what matters.

IMPATIENCE

If you’re constantly wondering and anxiously waiting for messages from your spirit guides, the internal turmoil and anxiety you’re building up could cause you to miss it all together! Plus, when you’re in this state, you aren’t having faith in your guides, you’re demanding to have your way and your results. Where’s the beauty in that?

Building up your patience also builds your trust in your guides, thus strengthening your bond all the more. When you’re facing challenges, you can still know that your guides have your best interests at heart, and that they will be there for you at just the right time.

When you aren’t looking for it, all kinds of great things can happen unexpectedly. With a stronger bond with your guide, you’ll start to recognize that the coincidences that seem so fortuitously timed are intentional messages and guidance from the spirits who care about you.

DRAMA

The chaos of certain relationships and situations can certainly be the utmost distractions. When you’re constantly squabbling with an acquaintance or trying to make everyone happy, you yourself aren’t happy. You’re agitated, likely closed off, and unfocused. This can make it hard to connect with your spirit guides.

Ask your guides to help you clear your heart. Get rid of the negativity and fear and replace it with the peaceful, loving energy of positivity. Also ask your guides to help point out any relationships that you may have outgrown, ones that are only slowing you down and harming more than helping. It’s okay to trim back relationships that are draining you of valuable emotional and spiritual energy.

While it’s important to still love everyone around you no matter what, it’s your choice who to pour yourself into. The more negative energy you collect around yourself, your friends included, the harder it will be for your spirit guides to connect to you.

FOOD

Humans are clusters of energy waves, moving faster and faster all the time. As a human you have agreed to see yourself as solid forms through consensus reality. Everything you do and think, everything you eat and drink, in fact, everything you put into and around your body effects the overall vibration of your entire being. After all, we are energy, and food is energy for us, thus affecting our energy overall.

Therefore, it is quite essential that you pay attention to the vibrations of the foods you eat. When you eat foods that have a high and rapid vibration, you are more able to hold a strong, healthy, exuberant and joyful state. When, on the other hand, you eat foods of a slower, lower frequency, you lower your vibrations and, wonder why you don’t feel quite so good that day.

Each of us has a signature vibration; each food you ingest contributes to that vibration. Here are some of the foods for lower vibrations that you should avoid, not just for nutrition and toxin’s sakes:

  • Genetically modified (GMO) food, and conventional food that’s been treated with chemicals and pesticides
  • White rice and flours
  • Sugars, sweeteners (artificial etc.)
  • Coffee
  • Sodas
  • Alcohol
  • Meat, fish and poultry
  • Processed, packaged, canned and fast foods
  • Unhealthy oils, like canola, cottonseed, margarine, and vegetable oils
  • Frozen foods
  • Pasteurized cows milk, yogurt and cheese
  • Cooked foods, deep fried foods and microwaving food

OVERANALYZING

Our egos can be one of the biggest trip-ups of all. When it’s chattering away in our ears that it knows best, tell it to be quiet for a bit! When you’re analyzing everything, you can break the connection with your guides. Some of the sweetest moments come when you have sudden clarity and insight that you hadn’t seen before.

Your guides want you to have faith in them, and it also creates the space for all the miracles they want for you. They may not be earth-shattering and crazy every time, but by letting them come to you instead of dissecting every little thing, you can reap their benefits more often and be amazed by their simple beauty.

JOHN HOLLAND: “Synchronicities And You”

Synchronicities and You.png

Is your soul trying to get your attention?

Synchronicities and so-called coincidences are clear signs that the Divine Source is knocking on your door.  Sometimes it could be a soft tap or for those times when you’re not paying attention, it could be a loud bang!

When source works through synchronicities, it can manifest itself in some pretty unique ways.  I have my own definition and refer to them as my divine nudges.  For example, it’s when I hear the same phrase or saying from more than one person in a day?  It’s when the same numbers keep showing up in your life?  Has someone mentioned the same person you were just thinking of?  Have you met someone out of the blue who seemed to answer a question that you were just pondering?

How to tell if it is synchronicities?

These are all just signs for you, and I encourage you to pause, be open, and pay attention but most importantly, acknowledge that the source is sending you a message.

I know this man who was having a hard time switching careers and it was clearly causing him a lot of stress with all the unanswered questions.  He was offered a new job and wasn’t sure if he wanted to leave the security of his existing job where he’d worked for years.  One day as he was driving to work and in a state of indecisiveness, he found himself asking himself all the nagging questions that torment us at such times:

  • “Should I take the new job?”
  • “Will I be happy?”
  • “Am I doing the right thing?”

At that precise moment as he was churning the questions over and over, he looked up and saw a bus drive by and for some reason, he read the billboard on the side of the bus. It was a Nike advertisement with the slogan:

“Just Do It!”

These are not just coincidences!  I don’t believe there are accidents in this intelligent universe.  It’s times like these that you should ask yourself: “What am I supposed to be learning or doing right now?”  I feel when these synchronistic events happen, it’s the inner workings of your soul showing up in your outside physical world.

Tips on tapping into, and working with, synchronicities

This week try to notice if synchronistic events are happening around you and your life.  Here are a few tips to assist you to Begin to notice and act on those divine nudges.

The more you notice and pay attention to meaningful synchronistic events and coincidences, the easier it gets for them to multiply in your life.

  • Notice when you run in to people unexpectedly.  Really listen to what’s being said in the conversation and the hidden message that could be there for you.
  • If there’s a certain problem in your life, try to let it go and turn it over to synchronicity.  What you’re saying to the Divine Source is: “OK, show me! Let me be aware and act when the answer or guidance is being presented to me.”
  • Work with your journal and intuition to become even more aware when source is knocking on your door.
  • Believe that it’s possible.  A positive attitude enhances the experience, just as a negative attitude will shut it down.

This article maybe the first from me you have seen, you may have had this forwarded to you from a friend, or someone might have simply had you read this after you just told them of a so called coincidence that has or keeps showing up in your life.  You were meant to receive this newsletter with this message.  This is another example of synchronicity trying to get your attention.

As I’ve said: “There are no accidents!  I truly believe that life tries to show us miracles every day, if we would simply notice — and act upon them.”

Live a Soul-Filled Life!
