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.
Lifting the veil and coming back empty handed. There used to be an infamous pizza joint in Phnom Penh called Happy Pizza. Who knows how the Gemini Husband knew of it, but he and my then thirteen year old daughter walked there one evening to pick up a pizza. Among the… READ >>
Would you rather be spiritual or awake? Becoming spiritual is something separate from waking up. Becoming spiritual definitely has methods, teachings, progress. It has its own rewards. It has its own pitfalls. It can be a lifelong endeavor. Waking up is instant. It’s complete. READ >>
From which point are you asking questions? Are your questions living or dead? Questions that come from the mind are dead questions. It doesn’t mean they have no value, or interest or should not be pursued. But I am personally unable to answer them. There are questions that are alive… READ >>
So far I’ve spoken pretty much exclusively about having, surviving and integrating radical spiritual experiences and not so much about enlightenment. Let’s talk a little about the difference between the two. Enlightenment is not an experience. It is a state of being. It is a radical state of clarity.… READ >>

Are you serious about transforming your life? I was asked if I have a morning ritual or if I set an intention for the day. I don’t set my intention for the day. I don’t even know what that means. I wake up before dawn. It’s not a ritual, it… READ >>
