Axes of Consciousness: Points of Reference for Navigating the Ocean of Consciousness
Energy healing is about focusing attention intelligently. Fortunately, focusing attention is a skill we all possess. The art of this skill is in deciding where to focus. Below you’ll find four points of reference which are quite helpful in understanding the axes of consciousness and the process.
But first we must understand that consciousness is an infinite ocean of awareness. Therefore, our perception and expression, our points of reference must naturally accommodate its infinite nature. Rather than using a single point as a reference, a more useful navigation tool for the ocean of consciousness is an axis.
There are many axes, and all of them interface with each other. Sometimes I see them as intersecting planes of existence.
Four Points of Reference to Understand Axes of Consciousness More Clearly:
1. Larger than the largest to smaller than the smallest – The first axis is one with which almost everyone is familiar. This is the continuum of smaller than the smallest to larger than the largest. This axis represents the field explored by modern science. Quantum physicists examine the smallest levels of creation and cosmologists explore the furthest reaches of the universe.
2. Dense to Subtle – This axis ranges from the density in the heart of a black hole to the subtle range of the causal realms of creation, and ultimately the field of Divine Being. This axis was the first that I explored in my journey of healing. We are so much more than fleshy machines. You can review the dense to subtle levels of the self here.
3. Chaos to Order – The third axis holds all of the realms of creation and all parallel universes in its range. At one extreme end of this axis, life can be wonderful beyond description, and at the other extreme, horrible beyond compare.
As humans we have the privilege of traversing this axis and ultimately finding our way to its finest point of balance. At the point of perfect balance between chaos and order, we are aligned with the Source of Creation (which is a field of perfect symmetry), and spontaneously integrated with the opposing forces of chaos and order.
Balanced together, chaos and order interact dynamically to create the energy which fuels the manifestation of the whole creation.
4. Non-Conscious to Super-Conscious – This is the axis which we as humans (and other life forms as well) are traversing in our journey to God realization and Divine Embodiment.
From a human perspective, the first axis and the second axis are supplied to us by Divine grace. Our bodies are naturally positioned in the point of balance between large and small. As consciousness awakens, our status from dense to subtle is revealed.
Through choice, practice and technology, we evolve the ability to find our way intentionally along the third axis to remain at a point of balance between chaos and order. Movement along the fourth axis, the evolution of consciousness from inertia and sleep to fully awake, develops from refinement of all aspects of self over the course of time.
The more refined the physical nervous system, heart, mind, speech and action become, the more full value of consciousness our vehicles are capable of embodying.
This is the journey of awakening.
