Shifting The Location of Consciousness

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.

Postcard from your future self:⠀
I've always been a bit of a germaphobe to begin with, so when covid hit, I really imagined my whole life would change...even once it was gone. I couldn't imagine looking at people normally ever again. It's amazing how quickly that subsides. We are social animals, and we need physical, social interaction. The first time someone touched me after lockdown, I had a moment of panic. I returned to a restaurant I frequented a lot before covid, and I had gotten to know the owner well. When he saw me, he came and took my hand in both of his and gave me the most heartfelt welcome. For a second I thought I would pass out from horror! But I took a breath and met his gaze and stepped back into my normal self. Our Covid Self is just a brittle bit of armour that we need in order to get through this, but it's not organic. It's not part of us...it's only provisional. There will be a right time, when each of us takes that breath, meets the gaze of another human being, and allows that armor to dissolve away.

Have you ever wondered what would it be like to be rid of all mental programs? Is this something we can hope to achieve? I address this in my latest post...linked in my bio.

This is metamorphosis. When fetuses are gestating, they look like fishes and then tadpoles, they have gills and a tail and go through this water world evolution. They emerge something different, but if at any stage they get stuck...well, it's webbed feet for life!  The trick is always -- not getting stuck. ⠀

I wonder how things are with you. This year will certainly be a turning point in your life. I know how engrossing this kind of change is -- you find yourself conducting a symphony of a thousand and one instruments, without sheet music.⠀

So I offer you this picture of a single, amazing cloud. I was absolutely transfixed by this ephemeral structure, how it held its non-self together in a vast sky. Watching this cloud, I felt cloud-like. Effortlessly configuring all my non-stuff to create something beautiful, something graceful and singular, set like a momentary jewel in the atmosphere.
