The Shamanic View of Mental Illness

One major difficulty someone in the West has when seeking his or her way through a journey with awakened kundalini is the knowing that any Western “health” agency or agent would diagnose it as a state of illness instead of an organic, psycho-spiritual correction/expansion/healing endeavoring to process out to completion.  It is my prayer that wisdom along these lines will be available to all in the very near future.

And, totally unrelated to this post, I’m sharing this photo of an “anomaly” near the sun captured by satellite cameras yesterday. Like looking in the mirror – haha!ufo+angle+sun+anomalies

What Shamans See in a Mental Hospital

In the shamanic view, mental illness signals “the birth of a healer,” explains Malidoma Patrice Somé. Thus, mental disorders are spiritual emergencies, spiritual crises, and need to be regarded as such to aid the healer in being born.

What those in the West view as mental illness, the Dagara people regard as “good news from the other world.” The person going through the crisis has been chosen as a medium for a message to the community that needs to be communicated from the spirit realm. “Mental disorder, behavioral disorder of all kinds, signal the fact that two obviously incompatible energies have merged into the same field,” says Dr. Somé. These disturbances result when the person does not get assistance in dealing with the presence of the energy from the spirit realm.

“Grid Consciousness” Speaks

This is a gargantuan post, friends. I’m obliged to post it in its entirety due to the Creative Commons license attached; I had originally planned to post just a segment with a link to more. It involves one person, Laron, conducting a QHHT session (the Dolores Cannon method of regression hypnosis) with a subject (Lai) who transitions from one level of awareness into “Grid Consciousness” along the way. Such shifts often occur in sessions like this.  Enjoy the ride (and discern for yourself, as always, its worth to you).

Much love… W

On Tuesday the 5th of August, 2014, I caught up with Lai in Sydney to conduct two more QHHT sessions. The information within this particular article is from the second session of the day, but only about sixty percent of that session. I have titled it the fourth ‘part’, based on the order of the previous articles which I have posted so far on transients. We had covered a lot of topics and information within the morning session, which was also a longer session, but one of the topics we did not get a chance to get into within the morning session, was the shift in consciousness. (aka the new earth / the event / the global coastal event / the ascension / the gathering, etc)

For those unaware of what QHHT is, it’s a past life / in-between life hypnosis based regression method, taught by Dolores Cannon. I am a level 1 & 2 practitioner, trained by Dolores Cannon. This is the method she used to obtain all the information for her many published books. While there are multiple forms of past life regression, this method is unique because it calls in the higher self / over-soul aspect of the spirit, once they have been through a number of past or in-between experiences. Another unique part of this process is that the client goes into a trance based state where the higher self / over-soul speaks through them, using their vocabulary to communicate with.

This session explains very well, in my opinion, a number of different aspects that I have focused on in the past, in relation to the shift, and brings them together to explain the fuller picture, on top of so much more in addition to just that. The information that came through around the different levels of spiritual development in relation to the consciousness of the individual, seems to stand out as very important for people to understand and to learn about. Of course, each person is where they are meant to be, but sometimes some guidance can make a difference in an individuals life. In this case, I think this information will definitely make a difference for some. But not only that, it will provide some insight and understanding, and possibly some comfort, while we continue on with our day to day lives here as the World changes around us, and is likely to change in some larger ways over the next six months, based not only on this information, but other sources out there saying a similar thing.

To find Lai’s past sessions, here are the links, The Cosmic Journey of Lai Part 3The Cosmic Journey of Lai Part 2The Cosmic Journey of Lai Part 1.

The main areas discussed within this session:

  • The current status of the shift on many levels and an explanation of the many elements of it
  • Spiritual based levels of consciousness in relation to the shift and those moving on
  • Physical earth changes and an upcoming magnetic pole shift
  • Possible timing around many upcoming events in relation to the consciousness shift, the physical earth changes and the physical shift of a number of humans in the coming years
  • Clarification on what the the pulse / cloud G2 / stellar wave is about and the role its playing in the shift
  • Nibiru and the very positive role its playing
  • Spiritual guidance for those who wish to actively work on themselves and be part of this shift if they may not already be
  • Information showing that the changes that were to bring a loss of life on a large scale are no longer required to the degree that people were expecting

Lion’s Gate  8/8 – 8/25/14

This one is from Soulstice Rising (link at end)… thanks Gwen :)  Let us work with it… ox Whitehawk

Lion's GateWe have been preparing for another Lion’s Gate. Energies have been pretty wild, tossing us to and fro. We have had to be grounded and centered like a tree with roots going deep into the Earth, while our branches sway fluidly in the wind. This Gateway will begin August 8 and culminate August 25. What will accentuate the Power of this is the super Moon of August 10. So what is this Gateway about? It is Alcyone, Source Mother, pouring Her Love through the cosmos to enter us and Gaia. The energies may feel rather intense so if there are deep hidden old energies still within you, they will be revealed. Many may feel tossed about, so be the mighty Oak.

This is another step in our Purification, allowing our crystalline (clear) Truth to emerge more strongly. After the Lion’s Gate, we will continue to evolve and shift, yet the Gateway is most intense between August 8 and 25. Remember that you already have within you what needs to be empowered and lived. This energy is about bringing your grandness out of the closet…to live your life as an ascended master. It takes knowing Who you are and being Who you are step by step. Go slow and if an old inadequate tape comes up, release it and take a step forward in your Power. This is the next phase (of many) where we each move more securely into being ascended masters on Earth. Continue reading

9 Signs You’re An Old Soul

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? ~ Satchel Paige

I really related to much of this ‘profile’ and suspect many readers will as well. (Thanks Tom)  oxo Whitehawk

There is a special kind of person in our world who finds himself alone and isolated, almost since birth.

His solitary existence isn’t from a preference or an antisocial temperament – he is simply old. Old in heart, old in mind and old in soul, this person is an old soul who finds his outlook on life vastly different and more matured than those around him. As a result, the old soul lives his life internally, walking his own solitary path while the rest around him flock to follow another. Perhaps you’ve experienced this in your own life, or have witnessed it in another person? If so, this article is dedicated to you, in hopes that you will come to define yourself, or understand another better.

The “Old Soul”

Robert Frost, Eckhart Tolle and even Nick Jonas have been called them. Perhaps even you have? I did. Like many of them, this self discovery was made upon meeting Sol, who told me about his childhood as a precocious, intelligent boy who would befriend the teachers instead of the students, just because they were too different from him. As he related his inability to find interest in and connection to the people his age, I discovered that I felt the same, and still do.

If you have not yet discovered whether you’re an old soul, read some of the revealing signs below. Continue reading

Digital Food for the Soul

ClickHandlerFriends, I’m finding all sorts of goodies online lately, and in this post I’m sharing a few things that cool cats & kitties like you might enjoy if you care to click over and take a look or give a listen.

Media that Matters

Having no television, while also being very interested in media that engages and inspires my heart/mind (of which there’s precious little on regular TV anyway!), I check around and on occasion follow breadcrumbs that lead to something worth watching/hearing.

As you likely know, there are entire encyclopedic sites packed with free documentaries, for instance. And of course GaiamTV has some great programming if you’re inspired enough (and able) to pay their modest monthly subscription fee and tune in. They’ve got an amazing archive of ‘conscious classics’ as well as new content by people like David Wilcock, Regina Meredith, William Henry, Lilou Mace, Jay Weidner (also the programming director; a perfect role for him) and others. Their studio is in Boulder, where they’re neighbors with Sounds True (ST=mostly spiritual audio).

For this post I’m sharing a few items that just came under my nose yesterday. One is about the emergence of the feminine, and its significance; one is about the afterlife (and its significance – ha!), and one is a deep discussion about the profound shift in progress now (very significant! ;-).

Femme: Women Healing the World is a film produced by actress Sharon Stone. Surprise! Continue reading

Friends of Your Soul

(And are you one to your friends? A delicate balance… ox Whitehawk)

Who Are The Friends Of Your Soul?

who are the friends of your soul?

By Dr. Lissa Rankin MD

I used to think that friends were the people who unconditionally comforted you when you felt wronged, showed up for you when you felt needy and insecure, joined you in righteous indignation when you felt angry, and validated you when life isn’t going your way. I thought friends would be unconditional cheerleaders, and you would always feel better after being with a friend. But lately, I’ve realized that my most valuable friends are the ones who stand for my soul, even when that means saying something my ego doesn’t want to hear.

When a friend stands for your soul, she holds you accountable to your highest potential and expects you to do the same for her. When a friend stands for your soul, she understands how your ego operates- and loves and accepts you in spite of- even because of- what she knows. But she doesn’t sit by complacently when she watches you create your own suffering. She calls you on it lovingly, and pushes you in the direction of your highest self.

Inelia Benz’s “Expiration Date”

This new message from Inelia relates to my own that I’m posting immediately following this, to appear just above it on the blog’s home page.  ~ Whitehawk

Expiration Date: December 31 2017

March and April 2014 were marked by many intuitives, astrologers and seers as being a really powerful energetic junction. And, personally speaking, I’ve felt it in my own life. I’ve been down with a massive headache since the equinox in March.

When these things happen, I have a look at not only why they happen, but how they serve. How am I responding? Am I reacting? How is this debilitating condition serving me? Serving something, or someone, else?

What came to mind, is that my personal work here has an expiration date. The request I received to go public was not permanent, it was until 2017. This is the main reason I accepted it. And therefore, the likelihood that A) I am being taken out or B) this is the end of the world as we know it, is highly remote, if not impossible.

Waves of Love

Have you been feeling the =waves= pouring in recently? My sense of overall well-being and heartfulness seems to have increased in recent days. Let the trend continue for all!

This video is just a little offering that might be appreciated by readers of a ‘certain vintage’ in particular … lots of vignettes from the days way back, when four destined boys from post-war, bombed-out Liverpool came along bursting with something unlike anything the world had experienced before. So love-centric in their message. This is such a sweet, harmonious song (Words of Love) and the video is loaded with unique clips. May it lift you as it did me.

Kundalini and the Emotions

 

Guest post by Chrism; thanks to Tom for forwardingImage

Everything is amplified within the Kundalini awakening none more so than the emotional traumas. Inside of our pain and our sorrow there can be confusion and blame and deep, very deep, hurt and injury to our self worth and our self expectations and our understandings of what love is expected to be. We can ask:

“Why? How? Did this happen?” “Why am I here alone?”

Yes I have authentic experience having been allowed to ask these very same questions earlier in my process. Inside of this Kundalini amplification of emotional isolation and pain the answers I give may not be enough to plug the hole you may be experiencing at this time. And they shouldn’t. They are there for your personal process to discover. These rips into your heart are there for the divine exaltation through the release of toxic programming and information – a conduit of release from mundane concepts that cannot co exist with the enlightenment process that comes with the Kundalini awakening.

But keep reading and the reasons will become clear that you must have this. It is a necessary part of the process of Kundalini awakening.

Gratitude!

Dear friends – THANK YOU for showing me such sweet support in my hour(s) of need, in response to my SOS post two days ago. I haven’t been able to post an update (couldn’t get a cursor in the WordPress text window, weird), and this has to be brief (rushing) but I wanted you to know the kitties are staying with their rightful human! :)))).

Close call, but did inch over my minimum goal to feel trusting enough of the universe to keep the girls. Thanks to all who helped keep my little family intact; this has been such a unique, rather frantic, and ultimately affirming experience! Helped restore my faith, no small thing. Helping to keep me online another month, too! This is living in the acute NOW, in spades!

I’ve sent personal notes of appreciation to every contributor except ONE woman whose email bounced. If you see this and donated today, Wednesday the 22nd, and haven’t heard from me… it’s you!

Much, much love and gratitude,

Whitehawk

In Case of Spiritual Emergency (Don’t Break Glass!)

If there’s anything that qualifies as a spiritual emergency, kundalini in full torrent would be it. Granted, some people experience kundalini (or what they believe to be kundalini… but more likely to be a far gentler prana movement in the spine) as a delightful gift of spirit. But a full-out kundalini activation – with all its highly powerful and mysterious manifestations – can be a very frightening and life-derailing experience that can go on and on and on.

I remember back in the 80’s a network of psychotherapists specializing in spiritual emergence (ie, an “awakening” that disrupts a person’s life routine to the point of seeking guidance to help integrate it) formed. It was known as “SEN” – the Spiritual Emergence Network of therapists, founded by Stan and Christina Grof.

I was encouraged that a growing number of spiritually-aware psychologists was finally taking strides beyond the old (presumably) science-based model of determining a patient’s mental condition, into a more expansive exploration of prognosis and care. Continue reading

Clearing for the Collective

I believe this is the first time I’m reposting a piece by Steve Beckow, but this is good stuff so I wanted spread it around. This matter of clearing challenging matters beyond our own personal baggage is a key point to really get. I have been processing some intense  stuff coming up and moving through me for a number of months – actually going back into last summer, when I look at it – as though some vast reservoir of shadow issues has been flooding up from the dank subconscious to be healed… and I’m finding the sheer enormity of it to be a major derailer. This experience is not conducive to keeping life clicking along as usual. “The usual” is as gone as the victrola.  ~W

New Man 11In my reading with Archangel Michael on March 29, I asked him, on behalf a of a team member, how we’d know we’re clearing for ourselves or for the collective and he replied:

“They go in tandem. You would not be gifted with the opportunity to clear a certain area or belief or vasana [for the collective] if you did not have a trace or a former imprint of that within thee. So it is the level of intensity that comes up, especially now, with the clearing. And you think, ‘Well, wait a minute. I have done this work. And I have done it diligently and deeply and completely. And yet here I am and it feels as I am being swept away by a tidal wave.’ That is how you know it is for the collective.”

The Aethos and Non-dual States of Consciousness

This is a long and info-packed message from our beloved Hathors. It took me a while to settle down long enough to read it, and now that I have, I share it with mention of a world meditation based on this information happening on November 4, 2012, that you may wish to participate in. Two sound files from Tom are included for ‘ramping up’ our consciousness. Also valuable are Tom’s comments after the Hathors’ material.

Love all, Whitehawk

A Hathor Planetary Message through Tom Kenyon

In this message we wish to discuss some of the significant relationships between manifest reality and non-dual states of consciousness.

Mind and Consciousness

Before we proceed, however, we would like to draw a distinction between the terms consciousness and mind as we use the words.

For us consciousness is transcendent to all phenomena and is not bound by neurological activity in your nervous system. Furthermore, consciousness is transcendent to both time and space, as you perceive them. And it is through the vehicle of your consciousness that you can travel through energetic vortices that lead outside the constraints of embodied existence.

Mind, as we use the term, refers to the sensory, mental and emotional experiences you have as a result of distinct changes in your nervous system. Indeed, as you read these words, you are creating their meaning through the agency of your physical brain and nervous system. You are creating the meaning of our words through the window of your mind, but this window is both created and constrained by the limitations of your nervous system.

Our messages are linguistically coded, and at various locations in the syntax (order) of our communications there are vortices—wormholes—through which you can temporarily transcend your mind and enter into the infinite mystery of consciousness.

How We View Higher Dimensions

In our experience of ourselves, we exist within multiple dimensions of consciousness, and depending upon our level of personal evolution we manifest in the fourth through the twelfth dimensions. Through the ninth dimension we can alternate between our anthropomorphic form, which is humanlike in appearance, or our light body.

As we shift into the 10th dimension Continue reading
