The Self and the Sleeping Self

The Dream Portal by Sheilan

Our Self, as a being, is made up of three parts: our physical self who hosts our ethereal self (higher self) and soul self.  The higher self is the host for the soul and who we are when we are not in this physical body.  The higher self is like a bridge for our consciousness; it is the go between to our soul and physical self.  The soul is the part of us which has no beginning and no end and knows no limits.  Only higher self and physical self has limits and has a beginning and end.

At the beginning of a Universal Cycle, the soul comes out of the One and is given a higher self to function and play in creation.  The soul stays in the higher self until the end of the Universal Cycle and then it either merges back into the One or the higher self enlists in the angelic kingdom to serve other Universal Cycles. The soul and higher self explores the spectrum of light via training grounds like earth or other planetary schools located thru out the universe.

When entering a school, physical bodies are given to the soul and higher self as vehicles. Bodies could be anything in the physical realm that a soul wants to experience and not limited to the human experience.  Often the soul will split it self into 4-6 parts in what is called life lines to have a more varied experience and to get the maximum out of school. When an expression of self is no longer needed or we have completed our lessons and schooling on a training ground, our life lines merge back into us.  Life lines have their own soul and higher self, which is connected to the original soul and higher self.  Most of the beings on the planet in this 3-D game are life lines of their original soul.  In such cases, the original soul and higher self stays on the other side of the veil guiding its players or life lines.

Sleep is necessary for regenerating all parts of Self. Though meditation is a useful tool, sleep is the paramount way for connecting to our higher self and soul.  If we are a life line player, sleep is essential for us to connect to our original, greater self.  When we are asleep and dreaming our higher self is awake and taking care of the business of Self on the other side of the veil.  When we are awake here our higher self is asleep there.  When we are asleep information is downloaded to us and when we are awake we upload information to our sleeping higher self.

If you have paid any attention to your dreams you know there are many kinds of dreams to experience.  Sometimes we dream about the lives of the other parts of us or life line players. Sometimes we are being instructed or informed and guided by our soul and higher self on a topic or issue in our life. There is so much more to dreaming than people who study dreams realize.   This 3-D reality is also a kind of dream, which can be changed without the physical self realizing a change has happened.

If you study and pay attention to your dreams you will realize that the dream reality of our sleep is as valid as our waking reality dream.  Are you awake now or are you dreaming? Are you sure? Yes this is a trick question, but worth pondering.  Because of the dream quality of reality, it is possible for a pole shift and shift in consciousness (a theme change) to take place for this earth school and most of us would not know it.  It would be as simple as going to sleep and waking up in a new peaceful, harmonious reality.

This is how planetary schools change their themes.  The shift is not happening because of evolution etc. This is a dream… the notion of evolution is part of the dream.  We grow lighter so we can see the dream!  After the theme changes, it will all seem very normal… like it has always been this way.  We simply wake up from being asleep and dreaming and while asleep we were conditioned for the change of theme. Perhaps, after the theme change occurs, it might seem as if the nightmare of this life is only a distant, fading memory of a past dream.

Row row row your boat gently down the stream… merely merrily merely merrily life is just a dream!

Happy 2014,

Sheilan

Having An Opinion

Higher Self by Sheilan

Higher Self by Sheilan

In the advaita and non-duality community, I have seen people thinking that to have an opinion is unenlightened and undesirable!!!!  My perception and opinion 😉 is this: concerning enlightenment, it matters not if we have opinions or not. What matters is our attachment and identification to the opinion that we make. This shows a subtle and important distinction and understanding of Self.

The ego is not the issue or problem.  It is our attachment to what the ego does and says, which keeps us from enlightenment.  It is our beliefs we are the ego/body foremost and deny soul it’s due reign over all parts of Self.  Sometimes in the process of giving soul it’s due we go to the other extreme and deny our opinions and then we appear cardboard like.  This reveals we our identifying our Self, on some, level as the ego/body. The ego/body self is our vehicle.  We do not exist without the container of ego/body and higher self.  The ego is not the part of Self, which identifies.  So then what deeper part of us is doing the identifying?  It is the part of us, which is in the process of waking up to Self and why we chose to come to earth school.

We become handicapped when we deny or don’t recognize all parts of Self.  To be balanced and whole is to embrace having an opinion and an ego, while knowing we are soul/consciousness foremost and so live our lives surrendered to Consciousness and soul.  Our higher self, which many do not realizes exists, is the part of us which is the bridge between the other two parts of Self and that ,which is awakening to Self.  While on earth we are all three parts of Self.  Jesus Christ called these three parts of Self the Father (soul/Consciousness), Son (human body) and Holy Ghost (higher self). When not on an earth like school, we are soul and higher self.  Higher self can be known and directly connected and communicated with via our meditations.

Enjoy your opinion!

Soul’s Passage Into Birth

Heart Song by Sheilan

Abortion rights have been at the forefront of our politics for a long time. One side says it is murder to abort a fetus and there needs to be rights for the unborn child. The other side says it should be a women’s and her doctor’s right to choose and are fighting for women’s rights and choices. Let me briefly share what I know in regards to the soul’s journey into birth and my perspective on abortions.

Before each lifetime on earth, there is a meeting with our Soul/Higher Self and two to four spirit guides to design our next life.  Together a program is created for who we will be and what our life will be in order to learn all the lessons the soul seeks to learn during this lifetime. Each one of us chooses the family we will be born into and the other souls who will be participating in our life.

The soul usually enters the baby’s body inside of the mother about three to five days before it is born.  This begins the mother’s preparation for birth.  Before this time the soul hovers near the mother and family and attunes with them. For some beings, coming into this world can be a very challenging ordeal. Our souls often feel very limited by the small size of these human bodies. Can you imagine what an ordeal it would be if the soul were confined inside the little body inside the mother’s womb for all of the nine months?  If this were the case, I think our psyche would suffer greatly from this experience.  I feel claustrophobic just thinking about it.

I am blessed to be able to receive information regularly from spirit and have studied the journey of the soul for a long time now.  Because of this, I understand that when a thirteen-week fetus is aborted, there is no soul present and should not be considered murder. The fetus is an extension of the mother’s body until which time the soul takes possession of its little baby body shortly before it is born.  When we logically think about pregnancy it makes a lot of sense that this is how and when the soul enters the baby’s body.

After a baby is born it spends a lot of time in the sleep mode, so the soul can continue to adjust to its new body, and new life. The soul is given a window of time to make the adjustment. Sometimes the soul decides it does not want to stay in the life and or perhaps may not be quite ready for the lessons to be learned and so it returns back to the other side.  If this happens before birth it can be a miscarriage or a stillborn.   If it occurs after birth it is known as SIDS or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

When we better understand the soul’s journey it will help us to understand the issues around abortion.  (See comments below for further conversation on the topic).

OH NO! The Sky is falling…

Acceptance is the key to life’s challenges, the “ups and downs’ of life… Having the sky fall is simply a tool for soul growth and cosmic evolution to take place.

Oh no the sky is falling! It was only a matter of time people began to realize the depth to which we are self destructing as a civilization.  For many of us the sky fell a long time ago and it was the beginning of our journey seeking for something Real.  At some point the cosmic rug was bound to get pulled out from everyone else and the fall-out to be fatal.  Because we are at the end of a cosmic cycle we are witnessing extreme duality on every level of life and society.  There is no real security in this world and the security we try to hold onto is illusionary.  We must be willing to look behind the curtain, like in the movie The Wizard Of OZ, to see The Great Oz is an illusion and can’t save us and get us home to where we want to be.  The True comfort and security we seek can only be found inside our own self.

From my perspective, this life is a dream… kind of like a movie.  It is a fantasy held together by smoke and mirrors.  Most of the players are are not aware of the dream and believe the characters and the stage sets are real.   In this country, many are filled with endless ego desires.  They indulge themselves on every level possible. They desperately try to fill up their empty lives with all kinds of stuff, so they can’t see the dream.  This keeps them from asking the essential questions of who am I and what is this life about?  When our lives are filled to the brim with accumulating and consuming and bulling each other, who has time to look deeper and to question what is real?

Sleepwalkers sometimes walk into walls and fall down stairs.  This may wake them up, but it will not keep them from sleepwalking again. It is the same for all of us.  Only awakening one moment is not enough to keep us awake for the rest of our lives.  We need to walk into walls, the sky needs to fall and the rug needs to be pulled out from under us, over and over again, until our egos become small enough for us to even minutely see the Dream.  The more aware and awake we are the more we become grounded in True understanding of what is Real.  Having True understanding that Consciousness is all there is is like having “The Ruby Slippers” to protect us from the The Wicked Witch of ups and downs.

The evolutionary journey out of the One and back to the One is Consciousness Awakening to itself.  Having the sky fall is simply a tool for soul growth and cosmic evolution to happen.  Suffering is never very pretty and can seem very tragic.  My heart goes out to all who are going thru such things.  I have had my share of suffering from cosmic rugs being pulled out from under me in a myriad of ways and as a result, I have awakened to clearly see the Dream.  When I began to accept physical reality to be a Dream, I began to let go of my attachments to it.  Life got easier as I accepted the ups and downs as part of the destined journey of my soul and just part of script of the movie… the dream.

There is a famous old Taoist story I really like called “We’ll See”.   It is a good example of seeing the dream.

There is an old farmer who had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbors came to visit. “Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically.

“We’ll see,” the farmer replied.

The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses.

“How wonderful,” the neighbors exclaimed.

“We’ll see,” replied the old man.

The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbors again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune.

“We’ll see,” answered the farmer.

The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son’s leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbors congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out.

“We’ll see,” said the farmer!

And the story continues on and on…

Yes our world is about change and it can either be a scary story where we get lost in what is happening or it can be a joyful journey because we know what is Real.  So “Get Real”… slow down, keep it simple, let go and let flow!  Live the ‘now’… from moment to moment and there will be no room for mind/ego to attach itself.  Real change comes from within.  Have patience!

Peace be with you,
Sheilan
