The Basics of Expanding Consciousness


There is always more than one route to the outcome you are seeking. However, to keep it simple, we will only explore a couple of starting points here. To allow your mind access to "other worlds," you might find it useful to have your left brain agree that experiencing unseen worlds is a possibility, a possibility that even you can have access to.

Start from the premise that there is evidence -- scientific evidence even -- that energies are present that you cannot see or feel or smell. We cannot see microwaves or infrared waves, but we know they exist because we have devices that can measure them. Much of the universe exists in this unseen form. Scientists estimate that 90% of the universe is "dark matter" -- something that is beyond our abilities to see or even measure. The human senses can only calibrate information from a very small range of frequencies. Furthermore, of the impulses that our senses can calibrate, only a small fraction of these make it into our brain for interpretation. Much of what we are accessing right now with our senses is being filtered. Are you aware, in this moment, of your little toe on your left foot? Were you aware of it before I mentioned it? We are filtering multitudes of sensory input every second and ignoring much of what is there.

Magnitudes of information exist in frequency ranges that are beyond our ability to sense with the sensory organs of the physical body. And yet, people regularly report having access to this information. We've all come into contact with someone who has what we term as "extra-sensory" perception. Whether it is a mother's intuition that her child needs her even though they are miles apart or grandma's premonitions that always came true, most of us know someone who has the strange ability to access information beyond their five senses. If you can accept that there are frequencies that our regular senses can't pick up, and you see that others have access to some of this, then clearly the possibility exists that even you can tap into these other worlds!

Another angle you may want to consider as a way to appease your left brain is to delve into the leading quantum theories of prominent physicists. When these physicists examined very, very small subatomic particles, they realized that there is a certain point where matter coheres. Before this point, it does not exist in physical form. Indeed, much speculation has been made of this pre-matter phase being composed of simply a field of probabilities. This means that the information exists prior to becoming matter as not just pure potential, but as multiple pure potentials. The information is out there even if it is not in a physical form.

Now consider who you are as consciousness. Are you limited to your physical body? Most people who are familiar with the power of their thoughts or their dreams would likely agree that they are more than their physical body. The Monroe Institute is a great resource for people who would like to explore themselves beyond their physical bodies. In terms of awareness, I would suggest that human consciousness can become aware of itself on many levels outside of our physical 3-D experience. All that is required is tuning our awareness to the place just beyond the point where information and potential cohere into matter. This type of tuning explains why there are people who have premonitions that come true. Perhaps you think of a friend who calls you minutes later. You may already be picking up the thoughts and feelings of those around you, which are simply information that has not cohered into matter or experience yet

If your left brain can concede one or more of these points -- that energies exist that cannot be measured by our physical senses; that beyond matter, potentials of possibility exist as patterns of light and information; that some people can pick up on these energies and patterns -- then you have enough flexibility in your consciousness right now to start experiencing these phenomena yourself.
