Waking Up, Your Identity And How It Is Expanding, Part 3

Now last time we started walking in a different way. Some of you have walked this way before and if you have and have noticed things then you can help your friends who are trying these things out. The reason I'm suggesting to walking in that fashion is because you are waking up eh. Now after you have tried what I recommended in part 2 then I want you to try something else.

When you find yourself at home again or wherever - alright - and you have that experience where you get up and go someplace or where you suddenly walk someplace and then you forget why you went there, and you will have that experience, then go back to where you were if you can and take your shoes and socks off and sit down or stand where you were.

Socially speaking this may not work in all situations but it may work at times - and standing there barefoot where you were try to get as close to where you actually were as possible or sitting where you were barefoot see, then you may remember because you will be perhaps in that bubble of identity. And if you do not remember then get up.

Try to get up the way you did before or move somewhat the way you did before and walk that path again to the space where you noted before that you didn't remember why you had moved into that area.

So walk that route again in the way I recommended in part 2 where you put your toes down and the ball of your foot down first. Walk along like that, feeling the floor or the ground under your feet. You may be aware that is perfectly safe and you don't have to pay attention to where you're going - perhaps there's carpet there or perhaps it's ground that you walk all the time and it's safe - but this time walk it that way feeling the ground or the carpet under your feet - paying attention in that fashion.

You can look at it but it's just as important to feel it with your toes, the ball of your foot and the heel of your foot when that comes down and walk it again like that. You might remember why you got up or why you moved suddenly into that space in case you had a moment of forgetting.

This is a very good way to consciously move towards waking up because it's something you can use that is physical. During the waking up process where you are moving from your identity on Earth, who you are, your name, what you do, your activities, all of that - when you move into being who you really are in your expanded state beyond Earth as an old and wizened soul - which you may very well be - you need to have more than your mind because your mind will remember who you are on Earth but it'll only have fleeting moments of awareness of who you are beyond Earth when your mind begins to function in your Earth conscious way moving from dream world to wakeful world - you see.

So your mind needs help and help is right there in the form of your physical feeling because when you are dreaming - when you're at the deep levels of dreaming you are with your teachers, you are in your soul form because your body is resting but your body does need to rest - your soul does not need to sleep.

The soul is your immortal personality. It travels, staying tethered by a cord to your physical body so your physical body does not get frightened and can rest and sleep but your soul travels and is with your teachers and your guides and looks around the universe touching base with old friends and becomes its wizened self but it lives in a world that is so far beyond our physical Earth lives that our minds cannot cope with this and that's why we need those moments of waking up and that slight confusion that comes with - who are we.

You will be able to use now with this touching with these other fingers, with these other hands - yes with your feet - you will be able to use something beyond your mind. Yes your mind but also your physical feeling as a means to move from who you have been taught to be on Earth and you will be able to do more through feeling.

More next time. Goodlife.

Waking Up, Your Identity And How It Is Expanding, Part 2

Now last time I spoke about waking up. This is what to do when you begin to have that phenomena I spoke about last time - alright?

First it's very important to begin to use your other hands and your other fingers. I'm sure you don't know what I'm talking about but the fingers* on your feet have the great capacity to connect you to the Earth in a moment to moment basis.

So, for everyone who can walk about safely and comfortably and even for those of you who must use canes or crutches to walk about it is of great value to walk about on the Earth barefoot. Not just because you can, as a child might run out in the grass and enjoy the feeling of the grass on their feet which is very good, but also because you can shift your sense of touch - or expand it is another way you might look at it - so that your body is very sensitive.

How to do that? Begin in a simple way. Many of you will have tender feet because you're not used to walking around on the earth or having your bare feet touch the grass or the sand or the dirt or the ground. First find a place where it's safe to do that - someplace in the shade or someplace cool so you won't get injured - preferably not on stone or concrete but if that's all there is available then make sure that it is cool. How? Reach down and touch it - alright - or ask someone else that is with you and doing this with you if you cannot bend over easily and have them check. As a last resort wash it down but I think it's better to just find it in the shade.

Then if you're walking on the ground or the sand that's where you'll be. Bring an object with you however - something with contour. Something that has form and shape and it isn't something that is breakable or something that you couldn't live without - alright? It could be anything - perhaps a plastic bottle with the cap attached - alright? Something like that. Something you can afford to lose - meaning if you forget about it and it's left there for a time it wouldn't be a problem.

You can be standing or sitting whatever you wish to do - if you're in a back yard that's fine and make sure that it's safe for you to walk around that yard first of course - scan about.

Pick up the bottle and close your eyes and move it around in your hands touching it, you see. Getting used to the sense of touch. Of course you know how to do that but this is to remind your body that this is what you're doing. You're not just thinking and moving, you're feeling and moving. There's a little difference there. Then you can open your eyes and put the bottle down on a table or what ever you have.

Then get up, you're barefoot you understand, and step out onto the lawn or onto the dirt or onto the sand or wherever you're stepping onto and touch what ever you're stepping on. Now naturally if you were walking barefoot without having done so very much you'd be very conscious of what's under you but you'd be nervous because your feet are tender. So it's alright to pay attention to what you're stepping on and you will notice a heightened sense of your physical awareness.

So move your feet in such a way as your forefoot and your toes are coming down first and then you can bring your heel down. This is just exactly the way you touched the bottle or whatever object. You picked it up and you felt it with your fingers.

So you're going to do the same thing feeling the ground with your foot fingers - or your toes eh? Reach the ground and touch with your toes and move slowly. You can pay attention to where you're putting your feet. Move around on the lawn or move around on the dirt or on the sand - wherever you're walking paying attention to putting your toes down first and the ball of your foot down first.

Your foot is actually meant to do that. It seems like it's meant to put your heel down first but that's not true. It's meant to put your toes and the ball of your foot down first. That's why you have those muscles there.

Your physical body has been built - created alright - provided to you by Creator in its form and also created by Mother Earth with her contribution to mother and father and your time of growing in mother - the form of your physical body is not an accident, not a happenstance of nature or science. It is all intended to be exactly the way it is.

So put your foot down that way and feel what you are walking on before you put your heel down - alright?

More next time. Goodlife.

*Quoted from Shamanic Secrets for Material Mastery, Chapter 22: How to Walk, How to Eat
by Speaks Of Many Truths through Robert Shapiro

"I'd like to suggest that you walk barefoot outside (that's the best way, but if you must be inside, then alright) on the front part of your foot with the back part raised up. First put down the front part, then the back part. When you do this I want you to imagine that you are walking on a platform, something being held in place for your benefit. I cannot tell you how helpful this is to give you a working physical feeling of balance."

Waking Up, Your Identity And How It Is Expanding, Part 1

Do you know that there is a awakening going on in people around you. It's not always obvious is it because you do not see them, most of them, when they are just waking up.

Have you noticed how sometimes when you wake up that there is a disorientation because you've been dreaming and the world of dream which is another world altogether and then you're waking up and there is a moment when you don't know who you are or where you are. It is very much like that around you now.

If you live with others you sometimes have the opportunity to see them in those moments and while you may be amused and being able to identify with those moments in yourself, and perhaps you all laugh about it, there are vast many others - the people in your neighborhood, the people you meet and many people all over the Earth whom you don't meet.

This waking up situation in the moments of confusion is happening now all over the planet. This is why many people that you will meet will momentarily seem to be so distracted. Not just because they are thinking or doing something but at other moments.

For those of you who live in cities this might be something that happens in an elevator or it might be something that happens at a bus stop. For those that live in the country it might be a situation where you come upon a person who appears to be thinking about something but who may be momentarily having a situation where they have forgotten why they are going somewhere, what they are going to do and the purpose for their being where they are in that moment.

It doesn't mean that they are crazy, alright? Many of you can identify with this right now. It's almost like a secret isn't it? You get up to go into another room to get something and you promptly forget why you went in there. This isn't something that happens only to the old, it's happening to people all over the planet.

This is because identity is in a bubble right now and very often your personal identity - who you are, what you want, where you're going, why you're there is in a bubble that you get up and leave when you go from where you are just a short distance away. It's as if the bubble suddenly remembers, "Oh, I must go with my being" and rushes to meet you and you may remember why you're in that other place or you may not. This is actually part of the waking up phenomena.

Waking up is not about sleep and the waking world. Waking up in this sense means you are beginning to remember who you really are and where you are really from and what you are really doing on Earth and how long you will stay on Earth and what you will do on Earth.

You will find that within the next 20 years this phenomena happens so much to so many people it becomes a regular subject of discussion. Doctors and scientists will move past the point of identifying it as forgetfulness into simply saying it's a phenomena, we don't know what it means - alright?

So I feel duty bound to reveal to you that what it means is simply you are waking up and it is a passageway. So what to do about that? More next time.
