AWARENESS OF THE SENSES 2

P. 49-53
This section suggests an experiential piece with partner. I believe some of that suggestion is to help us get out of our heads (which are usually filled with thoughts of limitation). I would certainly suggest doing this, and if you cannot, at least use the suggestions from this section and imagine or meditate with them so you can begin to get a sense of going beyond your five senses. In other words, getting more information from the deeper senses of your awareness. 
I love this quote:  “If you understand, frankly, that prayer is concentrated psychic thought with an intention to applicate to the divine, you will see that application in negative ways occurs just as readily when someone sends out a negative consciousnesses to bid energy to change.”
Prayer is the concentrated energy of thought—in  apposite way; one that raises the vibration of all involved, BUT we can also use concentrated (highly focused) thought to create lower vibration/frequency as well.
We kind of played around w…

AWARENESS OF THE SENSES 1

P. 45-48
Our perception, our knowing, primarily comes to us through our senses—sight, sound, taste, smell, touch. 
The guides are suggesting that we have learned a very limited use and awareness of our senses, i.e., we could know much more than we do. Our perception, of ourselves and our world has become limited by our learning, by habitual understanding. 
Just imagine what it would be like to have blinders on, but not knowing you have blinders on, or years ago when those weird 3D drawings were around, and you had to stare and stare, and let your eyes defocus a certain way and then—BAM, all of a sudden the picture became clear. It was there all the time, I just couldn’t see it.
(if you want to try some out, plug in Magic Eye into your web browser.)
The major point is we can know much more than we give ourselves credit for. We can “sense” things beyond the limits that we ordinarily impose on ourselves.
You can walk into a room and know if this is a friendly or hostile environment, no matter h…

AMPLIFYING LOVE 5

P. 40-44 This section was bout practical and deeply spiritual.
It was suggested we use the following prayer/affirmation for the next two weeks:
“I now set the intention to align my frequency up to the highest level and octave available to me in my consciousness at this time. And I set the intention that I will monitor my consciousness through my feelings and through my expressions as the day goes on, so that I may become accountable to my experience as an energy being operating in consciousness and through frequency. I am Word through this intention. Word I am Word.”
Now what we are being asked to do is get into the practice of checking in with ourselves to notice what our frequency/vibration is at a particular moment and to determine if we are in need of a “tune up.” Again it is not just about seeing how I am feeling emotionally, up or down. It is about looking more deeply inside. One of the easiest ways of checking in is to look at the thoughts I am thinking and holding onto. Does the en…

AMPLIFYING LOVE 4

p. 37-40
We opened our session with this quote from the new book by the Masters and Paul, The Book of Mastery: The life that you live, the life that you express through, has taken many forms and the creations you take so seriously, “Oh, look at the mess I made,” “Oh, look at that thing over there, what am I to do, what am I to do?” are actually only as great as you perceive them to be. And the mountains out of molehills, we will say, must be reduced to the level of sand that they come from so that you may walk upon them and claim your true destiny as the master that you are. 

The final thing we wish you to know, and all of you to know, is that you are not alone in this teaching. Each one of you who attends to these words is being ushered through this process by us, the Guides who work with Paul, yes, but those that we have assigned to you to support you in your process, and those who attend to the text will be attending to one another as well on the higher levels of frequency that you no…

AMPLIFYING LOVE 3

P. 31-37 this lesson includes two Sundays 12/27 and 1/3
As I reviewed this text, I was reminded of Marianne Williamson quoting ACIM, “You do not ask for too much; you ask for too little.” 
I also thought of how diminished our language is in its expression of such things as Love. 
The Jungian analyst Robert Johnson expressed it this way:
The first difficulty we meet in discussing anything concerning the feeling function is that we have no adequate vocabulary to use. Where there is no terminology, there is no consciousness. A poverty-stricken vocabulary for any subject is an immediate admission that the subject is inferior or depreciated in that society. Sanskrit has ninety-six words for love; ancient Persian has eighty)", Greek three, and English only one. This is indicative of the poverty of awareness or emphasis that we give to that tremendously important realm of feeling. Eskimos have thirty words for snow, because it is a life-and- death matter for them to have exact information ab…
