Where do you experience the seat of your consciousness? If you are undergoing changes brought on by a sudden spiritual awakening, this may shift to somewhere outside your body.
For me it shifted about a hand’s length in front, and an inch above, the space between my eyebrows.
If something similar has happened to you, you know exactly what I mean.
Along with this shift came an expanded ability to see. I could see the energy fields of other people. I could see them thinking. I could see that their attention was entrained to a space above their eyes, outside their heads and off to one side. They were entrained to the imaginary future on one side or the imaginary past on another, but not in the middle, which is the present. I could see other things as well, the breadth of which would be entirely too much to attempt to describe here.
It was a bit too much seeing. Not so much for me, but for others. Some people showed up and basked in it. It was somehow a great pleasure for them to be seen so deeply without being judged. Others shrank from it, and became somewhat hostile. Some projected parental patterns on me, as though I represented the all seeing, all knowing parent, the way a very small child would see things. And some people moved between some or all of these perspectives on any given day.
The most notable pattern of projection was the one in which people close to me would do things they knew they should not be doing and then avoid me because they were projecting the witness function onto me. They projected witnessing and judgement of their activities onto me, instead of owning the fact that they were witnessing themselves choosing to do things they knew to be self destructive.
Seeing very deeply need not trouble you too much, but it may cause some turbulence for the people around you. Just remain centered and realize that you can choose to remain silent, and even then people will continue to press their mental patterns onto you and see what they want or need to see. It may have nothing to do with you at all.
You can just be still as people react to you reflexively. They may not be aware of what they are doing and it may or may not make a difference if you explain it to them. It may not be your concern.
How to connect with spirituality directly. Something I’ve noticed over the years of communicating with spiritual people is how crowded their minds become with the symbols, language and cosmologies of whatever spiritual path they are following, or perhaps a jumble from a hodgepodge of different paths.

One tends to chase after experiences such as bliss and oneness with what we will, for convenience, call God. But these experiences come and go, they are not the prize, and are often just a big distraction. They can even be a trap, because one gets overly fascinated and focused on having these experiences, when really they are just things that happen along the way…you are supposed to keep moving forward and expanding.

It’s totally normal for you to try to accredit the awakened status of various people who claim to be awakened. From my perspective, this is just a quirky thing that Sleepwalkers do. It’s like a Tinder thing….yes, no, left, right, swipe, swipe, swipe. And in the end, what? Will you collect a database of authentic awakened people? To what end? READ >>

When a secular person goes through an intense enlightenment process, it is natural to look around and try to find others who have gone through this, to look for context. And what you often find is one of two things: a religious context or a new age ascension context READ >>
Is there any point to telling dreamers that they are dreaming? I get the call around 2am and rush to put some clothes on, trying to bring myself to a sufficient wakefulness to drive through the unlit forest roads to the hospital. Car accident. Ambulance. We’re not sure. Hurry. The… READ >>
