Living At Choice
Written by Cheryl Blossom MA, EdT |
Most traditions agree that the soul is timeless; yet our experience tells us that time is of the essence. The plane of the earth is a four-dimensional reality, and we experience multi-dimensions of our soul.
How do we deal with these apparent discrepancies between time and timelessness, and living in the four dimensional space of earth while knowing and sensing the multi – dimensions of our being?
What does this have to do with living at choice?
When we cut off our perceptions of the timelessness and multi-dimensions of our soul we narrow our ability to see change and transitions from an expanded state – fear and resistance set in. Choosing from this four-dimensional space and limited time perspective. We may deal with this threat by avoiding consciously choosing. If we are not willing to consciously make choices or take the consequences of our choices we stiffen and contract. Soon life becomes difficult, automatic and painful, and we resist change.
Change can be experienced as the need to choose and move; wherever we resist choice we limit our potential and inhibit our creativity. If difficulty is present at any level of consciousness, whether mental, physical, or emotional, it is usually the result of refusing to choose, thus opposing change.
The cosmic joke is that we are always choosing. Every moment of our lives involves choice – yes, no, maybe, later – all of our choices are made in this moment of now. We can’t choose in the future – we choose now for a future.
From our timeless and multidimensional soul’s perspective, choosing is the juice of life; a universal constant, we are always choosing whether we are deliberate or not. So why is there so much suffering around choosing? If making choices is such an integral part of living how do we build self – trust and ease in making our choices?
There is a mathematical parable from the 1930s, which teaches that the ability to perceive any specific number of dimensions requires that the consciousness of the observer be operant from at least one dimension higher.
To perceive a square you must view it from three dimensions. To perceive a cube you must view it from four dimensions. To observe ourselves we need to be in a higher dimension than the forth dimension of “reality.”
To experience the illusion of causality, to have memories, to project into the future all require that our awareness needs to expand into a higher dimension. Looking at your life from an expanded state instead of being inside the drama gives you more choice of what to do next. Choices made from an expanded perspective have more congruency – we see more of what is going on; we have more information. When we expand our consciousness we have more of our Self; we have more of a profound sense of identity, partnership and alliance with our soul.
Our soul or spiritual level of consciousness links us in an instant, like the synapses of nerves to times and places beyond the here and now. This linkage provides us with a profound sense of knowing and our choices are made with clarity and power. All parts of our self come together in the present.
When all parts of our self are in the present we experience unconditional acceptance, and peace. Our consciousness has no part of it somewhere else wishing that it were different than the way it is.
Integrating our awareness of expanded dimensional realities into our personality’s awareness of this life provides for presence. Presence is that state where time and space disappears; peace, acceptance and love are present. All aspects of our self are available to us and we are congruent. This is the place in meditation where we experience the perfection of the universe.
Expanding our perceptual net and perceiving from this expanded dimension is a method used in Integrated Awareness® therapy. The experience of our life is small compared to our whole self, and since we don’t live in meditation we need a way to provide us with this state of expanded presence as we go about our life. Integrated Awareness® is a way to provide this connection.
Integrated Awareness® is a therapy that provides tools to shift your awareness, transform the meanings that you have assigned to your life experiences, heighten your perceptions and allow you to choose and direct your intentions powerfully.
Integrated Awareness® has you harvest from your life experiences in a profound, intentional and sacred way, so that you can shape your future on a present and expanded path. It aligns you – to have the divine you – shine through!
