Your Cool Calm Centered Intention Can Help Shape Our Collective Reality
Consciousness, Coherence, Morphic Resonance: How Our Individual & Collective Calm, Centered Intention Can Physically Influence Reality
These are fascinating and profound subjects and I’m still exploring them, but I wanted to share and collect here some links and information and resources as I go along.
The ideas that most fascinate me here are those that concern conscious intention. Can my or your individual conscious intention change the world for the better? Can your and my conscious intention together change the world? What would it take for us–as conscious, aware thinkers focused on peace and eco-harmony–to effect real change–and do we have to be deep meditators or supremely spiritual/psychic/telepathic or otherwise specially endowed in order for our own thoughts and consciousness to make a difference?
Could we work together in some way–from just where we are, physically–to stop wars & militarism, stop invasive surveillance and unethical science, stop all the human rights and planetary abuse we are witnessing and living through today?
Many scientists working newly in various areas of consciousness seem to concur with long-time meditators on many of these ideas: particularly about moving into a state of focus and coherence through meditation or silence, and then being able to transmit that peaceful intention outward in ways that will ripple energy out from one’s own energetic centers into the world, and actually make a tangible difference in the world we live in today.
We Are All Vibrational Beings
This film, a documentary by Martin Sereda and James Law, currently on Yutube, Mind Science: We Are All Vibrational Beings, is quite wide-ranging and offers an intriguing collection of new ideas, experiments, and discoveries from many fields, including quantum physics, biology, cardiology, electrophotonics.
It brings together as well discoveries from the worlds of yoga and holistic healing, presents the views of many quantum physicists, biologists, psychologists exploring consciousness, energy, and intention, and discusses all sorts of interesting tidbits such as 528Hz, the newfound natural frequency of botanical harmony, and NASA’s audio-enhanced tapes of the sounds that the earth, other planets, and sun in our Solar system make.
Some of the ideas offered here include some of the hidden discoveries of quantum physics, that we live in an essentially non-deterministic world, that consciousness collapses the wave function–or, in other words, the nature of our perception defines the nature of our reality.
Mind Science: We Are All Vibrational Beings
(There are many other interesting films on Vibration and Sound on Youtube, including the compelling documentary, Resonance: Beings of Frequency, which discusses how we are all electrical beings, and how we constantly emit electromagnetic radiation as well as swim in a sea or smog of dangerous EMFs today. This film is also highly educational in regards to the earth’s frequency–the Schumann resonance–and how all living things are attuned to the earth’s frequency, which is today being tampered with and manipulated by unethical military scientists–more on this subject in a separate post, probably under Earth/Environment.)
The Whole Universe is Sound and Vibration
Musicians know this already, and scientists are making discoveries in this area. Cymatics, the science of sound waves & shape and form created by sound, like the mathematics of the intriguing Fibonacci spiral, offers visions of pre-existing symmetries in the universe through experiments showing how clusters of tiny particles respond to different frequencies of vibration pulsed through them by assuming different symmetries and patterns.
Cymatics: Bringing Matter to Life with Sound
Sound is used for healing today by both traditional shamanistic practitioners worldwide and newer holistic healers exploring its effects. Radio DNA healing is effected in laboratories today using a specific radio frequency, according to Dr. Len Horowitz, and discussed more fully in terms of the science behind it, here at the Sound-focused website Attuned Vibrations.
This frequency, which apparently is the central frequency of the sun’s vibration, as well as the base resonance of grass (for some information on bio-electric frequencies, see this interesting article by P. Simard on Natural News, Lavender and its High Vibrational Frequency), along with other harmonic frequencies of healing and harmony, are discussed by Dr. Len Horowitz in his book The Book of 528: Prosperity Key of Love, and in this rather interesting radio conversation on Coast to Coast,
528 Hz is a frequency that occurs in the ancient Gregorian chants, along with others in its harmonic range, known as the Solfeggio frequencies, which are thought to affect distinct other emotions. These frequencies were apparently known to be vibrationally healing, awakening, and powerful, which led to their being excised from later Gregorian chants in the 11th century by the Roman Catholic Church, to be rediscovered somewhat miraculously in the 1970s by Dr. Joseph Puleo, a naturopath and herbalist, whose prologue, A Gathering of Eagles, posted online at natural healer Iris DeMauro‘s website, to his co-written book with Dr. Len Horowitz, Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse, makes for fascinating reading. The story of 528’s history and meaning is discussed widely online, including in these blog posts by musicians and music-lovers touching on awakening, consciousness, being in resonance with Nature, and combating the EMF smog we are currently living in:
Nancy Bregin’s Solfeggio Frequencies, Gregorian Chants, and the Most Inspiring Hymn Ever Written
Transmission’s to the Awakened’s The Ancient Solfeggios (A musician’s site with great sound information and resources)
This article from sound healer Renee Cruz at her website Sol Awakening, another sound-focused website with interesting information, offers an intriguing connecting of the Solfeggio frequencies with the 7 yogic chakras: Solfeggio Frequencies
Susan Alexzander, a musician and composer who works with nature and natural sounds and frequencies from various sources “the Planck Constant, the Great Year of Astrological Precession, a vibrating protein, whale songs, or spinning black holes,” seeking music of resonance, healing, and transformation, makes magical music. Zuvuya: Reconnecting to Our Ocean Home, a short film with underwater footage of dolphins and whales by photographer Lisa Denning and soundscape of marine life by Susan Alexzander, and shown via a fluid museum installation seems otherworldly:
Our Thoughts, Our Dreams, Our States of Mind Are All Vibrations
From neuroscience, we know today that brain states and emotions have their own frequencies (in terms of the specific range of electromagnetic radiation/waveforms we give out during each), and that the frequency of relaxed states and meditation, the Theta state, is very low, between 4 to 7.5 Hz or cycles per second or, in deep meditation or deep, dreamless sleep, in the Delta state, even lower, from 0.5 to 4 Hz. This article from The Mind Unleashed covers the basics: Brain Waves and the Deeper States of Consciousness.
Mary Rivas, who teaches shamanic sound techniques to expand mind power, discusses in this article at Waking Times, how sound waves can affect brain states: The Power of Sound Frequencies to Change Your Brain Waves and Achieve Positive Results
Your Heart Has Its Own Intelligence, Its Own Nervous System, Its Own EMF Field, And Its Own Field of Vibration
Discussed in the film Mind Science: We Are All Vibrational Beings (linked above) and in their book are Doc Childre‘s and Howard Martin‘s Heartmath intelligence concept: their discoveries from their work with cardiologists and from recent discoveries, notably by the neurocardiologist Dr. J. Andrew Armour of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada, that the human heart has its own nervous system and neurons, its “heart-brain,” a center for its own mind, its own intelligence, and seems to communicate and shape the brain’s thinking in a two-way process even as it processes information from the brain. The EMF field of the heart is also immense and stretches outside the body. Emotions of heart–care, compassion, forgiveness, sympathy–have a positive effect on one’s own health and on the health of the field of relationships around one. There is a more detailed and exciting discussion in their book: The HeartMath Solution: The Institute of HeartMath’s Revolutionary Program for Engaging the Power of Your Heart Intelligence
Hearts Can Communicate Via Transfer of Subtle Heart Energy
Also in the film: Using electronphoton imaging through a camera using a methodology called Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) –similar to the kind of imaging that creates Kirlian photographs of the subtle energies surrounding all living things–Russian physicist Konstantin Koratkov images the layers of energy/aura surrounding the human body, and speaks of how conscious intention can be telepathically communicated from one person to another, something that can be taught to anyone, he says, if both are first attuned vibrationally–empathetically connected–to each other, possibly naturally through relationship. But perhaps also through connection in some common, empathetically-linking cause..?
Krishna Madappa, a holistic healer and scientist of consciousness, also uses electronphoton imaging in a study of communication to demonstrate in the film (Mind Science: We Are Vibrational Beings) how, during the process of silent, conscious communication, energy actually can be seen in the process of being transferred from one person’s heart-center to another, across measurable distances. This imaging, like the Kirlian photography, and the cymatic shapes of sound, or the lovely Emoto crystals in water, is absolutely astonishing to see.
In his writings and teachings, yogi Paramahamsa Yogananda (who wrote The Autobiography of a Yogi and brought yoga to the US in the ’20s) speaks of the “heart-radio”: “We are all human radios; you receive the thought messages of others through your heart (the occult seat, in Man, of chittha, intuitive feeling), the center of feeling, and broadcast your own thought messages through the spiritual eye, the center of concentration and will. Your antenna is in the medulla, the center of superconsciousness….When you become capable of great concentration, your feeling can penetrate everywhere; your perception becomes charged with energy, with electricity.” (Developing Dynamic Will/Eliminating the Static of Fear from the Mind Radio, Self-Realization Fellowship, 1980)
Your Energy Centers Are in Coherence in Meditation or Quiet or in Heart-Centering States
Deep meditators often speak of the need to first meditate and enter that deep quiet state of calm centering before prayer for any specific outcome, or before any kind of personal decision-making. Now scientists who map energy states offer insights into what happens during these quiet calm states.
In their book, the HeartMath founders speak about the calming down and gaining in coherence of all systems–hormonal, nervous, physiological, mental–as the heart’s rhythms settle. Interestingly, this settling can occur in a state of heart-centering, if you make the switch during any kind of stressful moment to heart-emotions like care, compassion, love, harmony, joy–essentially, centering yourself in some way. Taking a moment to do what you love can center you and bring you to a state of internal energetic coherence–it can de-stress, calm, and simultaneously energize and strengthen your total energy potential.
The HeartMath Institute also hosts great resources online, including a free e-book, The Energetic Heart, which explores “how living and acting from a coherent heart state can affect those around us.”
William Tiller, a materials scientist, physicist, and founder of The Institute of PsychoEnergetics, which experiments with materials, human intention, and consciousness, talks about the speed of consciousness and all subtle energies in the film (Mind Science: We are Vibrational Beings), as being found to be exponentially faster than light. Consciousness is seen as a super-tiny high-information wave traveling at super-high frequencies, able to penetrate lead/any dense material as it travels almost instantaneously across billions of miles.
Also noted is the understanding that holding conscious intention and sending it out via heart energy/emotion while in a coherent energy state arrived at through calming practices or meditation creates visible and measurable effect. One experiment he reports involves changing the pH of water. He reports that he and his researchers were able to change the pH in a container of water by intention alone, after arriving at a meditative state, and further were able to “store” that intention in a way that other containers of water kept beside the first one came to be changed in pH later. From these and other experiments, he theorizes that we are surrounded/immersed/exist in an interpenetrative second kind of reality–apart from the physical one of atoms and molecules we’re familiar with–which exists in the vacuum between the electrical particles within our normal reality, is invisible, is of a magnetic, information-wave nature, and is what can be influenced by our intention!
To see more, please read his white paper on Intention-Host Device Research, or watch videos on his website where he talks more about these experiments. His interviews with Lilou Mace and others can be found on Youtube.
Dr. Gary Schwartz, a psychologist and researcher of energy healing, also featured in the film (Mind Science: We Are All Vibrational Beings), mentions Lynne McTaggart, a science journalist and writer known for her books The Intention Experiments and The Field, where she interviews several quantum physicists, physicians, and others, and presents evidence for the Zero Point Field connecting all aspects of our reality, the invisible field of consciousness and information within which they say we all live. He speaks about intention experiments where groups of assembled people send intention and energy to plants, and cause plants and leaves to glow brilliantly, as recorded with Kirlian imaging.
As Our Consciousness Ripples Outward, Morphic Resonance–a Subtle Activation of the Collective Un/conscious–Kicks In, and the Effect Builds
The effects of consciousness building and making natural changes (in the field of what we call Reality) on its own comes here from biologist Rupert Sheldrake‘s theories of Morphic Resonance or what he calls Collective Memory or Changes in the Habits of Nature. He explains this in various talks and writings, including here in this rather wide-ranging conversation with Joe Rogan–right at the opening of their conversation–where he talks about the mice/bluetit experiments.
Essentially, biologists have observed that learning seems to be transmitted across generations and across populations of any given species–whether mice, or bluetits (known as chickadees in the US)–in a non-genetic, non-local way. Once the consciousness of something comes into being, it seems to ripple across space and across time without specific agency. This transmission accelerates with repetition, as the morphic field is strengthened. The most important aspect here is the initial nugget of consciousness itself, and how the repeated acquisition of this nugget of consciousness by other members of the species seems to smoothen and make easier the path for succeeding comers.
This article by Rupert Sheldrake in Psychological Perspectives, on how all this may relate to human consciousness–Society, Spirit, and Ritual: Morphic Resonance and the Collective Unconscious–is an interesting read, not least in its focus on fascinating aspects of the natural world, from studies of architectural ants to the maneuver waves of birds.
You Can Decide Your Vibration, & Your Vibration Affects the Field
Doing what you love or focusing on what or who you love is a way it seems of slipping both into Alpha-consciousness–being in the zone, being at one with your work, and of expanding and resting in your heart-intelligence, with its expansive electromagnetic field.
Centering yourself in that way, or by stilling yourself with meditation or just sitting in calm silence, you can then send your conscious intention for peace and eco-harmony out into the world and know that waves are rippling outward, carrying your powerful vibrations, into the invisible, interpenetrative, morphogenetic field that encloses all reality, and builds and unfolds as more of us enter and act from that space of calm center.
That would mean our collective thoughts and hopes for a transition to a peaceful, harmonious co-existence, for an ending to wars and militarism, corporate oppression and global totalitarianism, not to mention absolute destruction of the planet, if rising from a centered, calm, and heart-intense place, can indeed make a difference and start rippling changes outward into our common reality. Deep meditators from old traditions and scientists exploring new frontiers are together giving us immense hope: conscious, centered intention practiced by individuals can and will create real change.
No leap of the imagination then to say that your peaceful thoughts and calm centered intentions can indeed help shape our collective reality, our present, and our future.
Add Your Power to Others’
The Global Consciousness Project out of Princeton has a lot of resources online, including information on quantum computer experiments using randomized number generators proving that moments of focused global interest–whether on Princess Diana’s death or some other major event–create moments of coherence and order. See this Overview.
The HeartMath Institute runs a Global Coherence Initiative online, where they invite everyone to become GCI ambassadors, and tune in together via their Global Care Room at set-up times to focus/meditate and send out peace intentions. Their instructions on how to enter that heart-space of coherence are quite compelling.
More on unified fields, coherence, intention, and consciousness soon!
Thank you very much Peter, what a lovely blog, I look forward to exploring it further–and such an important message at this time. Yes, action steps do help us all. We all need reminders of ways in which we can keep learning, growing, and expanding our consciousness. You remind me to keep exploring and writing in this space….thank you:)
Thank you. This is a great article and chock full of valuable resources. There are many sites that relay important information, but leave one in hopelessness and despair because they offer no action steps. I like that you provide positive action steps so the reader is not left out in the cold (so to speak). The “how to enter that heart-space” technique is very good, and I’d like to add another resource: http://giveyourdreamwings.com/how-to-remain-positive-and-keep-a-vision-for-the-future/
I haven’t set up a newsletter yet, debadatta145. Thank you so much for asking, and maybe that’s something to build toward. Meanwhile, please do follow the blog on Facebook or WordPress, as I continue to explore these subjects. Posts under Consciousness will be added regularly every week.
