A Quest To Understand My Truth

It has occurred to me that there are some subjects that are difficult to write about. I’m interested in energy and the unconscious mind. I respect their power and am on a quest to believe, trust and understand.

How can one explain something so elusive though? My truth will be experienced differently to another’s. I ‘see’ energy. Many others ‘feel’ it as a tingling or some other sensation. The majority has never thought about it much at all.

Science acknowledges ‘energy’ and throws around terms such as protons, particles, atoms and electrons while simultaneously delving deeper into cells and atoms to find there’s nothing there. Any educated person who uses the term ‘quantum’ with confidence will know I don’t have a clue about this side of things!

How can I explain that the unconscious mind is so much more than a voice in one’s head that can be listened to? People can be committed for less!

It seems to me that by openly expounding these things I will be either burned at the stake or labeled a fruitcake. Perhaps both. My only consolation is that fruitcake, while occasionally nutty, is also interesting with it’s various components and it’s also incredibly sweet.

I guess my question should be “Does this matter if I am following what I’m drawn to experience (if not understand)?” Some of us stand on the cusp of the greatest final frontier. The human mind… or is it the soul?

My biggest critic is myself and so I project this out onto the world as well. Imagining that my opinion of myself is another’s opinion also.

The paradox is that I know the only way to grow more and to have the co-operation of Unconscious Mind is to trust, believe and refrain from second-guessing.

Does it matter if I’m off with the fairies if I have wings that make me fly?

In enlightened moments I have visions that are too real to be denied. Going with the flow of these things means more rewards in the future. I have watched a ripple of energy clearing a pathway of safety before my car as I hurtle down the freeway. I can ‘see’ an illness in a body. I can observe the energy wrap it’s healing hands around the problem.

How can I ask for this gift and then deny it with derogatory and negating self-chatter and doubts?

There are many things that I, and millions of other people, don’t understand. Perhaps we never will. It is another subject where we’re just looking at the tip of the iceberg.

I used to have opinions. I knew what was hokey and what was just plain stupid.

Nowadays I’m not so sure. Slow to judge and wise to listen. I’m also eager to observe. I’m thirsty to learn, especially about myself.

Journeys of self-discovery can be lonely but they are definitely worthwhile. I consider myself to have barely raised my head to peek beyond the wall of my comfort zone.

There is, however, no going back. Having seen what’s potentially beyond my current understanding and, with the hope of learning even more, I am dragged forward.

I am on a quest for my truth.

Heather, I've found that observing teaches me a lot, too. We are each on our own journey. Yet observing the journeys of others is helpful! In comfort zones or beyond:-) blessings, Cynthia PS thanks!

I think this is the precious thing about sharing our experiences... the other people that connect back to us and say "Hey, I understand, I'm in a similar place too". Thanks Cynthia.

That's a good way of putting it. I think I'll quote you on that!

Lemuel  

Hi Heather. Energy and unconscious mind are two powerful things. I admit I only read once about the human mind and nothing about energy before until your article. Is it true that in our lifetime an ordinary person can only use a fraction of the power of human mind? I read it before somewhere i couldn't remember anymore. I'm glad you are in a quest for your truth.

I have heard a similar thing Lemuel. I wonder at the concept of 'using' your mind though. Perhaps with everything the unconscious mind accomplishes on our behalf we use more than we are able to quantify. I really don't know in regard to this. Definitely the last great frontier of discovery!

Heather, I've been a great believer in the power of the unconscious mind for a long time now. You're fortunate to have been given such a gift, never take part in self criticism.

Thank you Penny for your encouragement. I don't believe I have a gift greater than anyone else's... my 'gift' is awareness, interest, being constant, studying modalities that foster these things. We are just at different stages in similar journeys and some of us with higher values for one thing or another. When people have no time, interest or belief for these things it cannot be revealed to them. My thoughts... don't know if they're all valid! ;-)

Heather, I've often wondered if I were to have a non-traditional experience, how open would I be--and how willing would I be to talk to others about it. Part of my reason for being an atheist is that nothing in my life has given me any evidence of something outside of the commonplace and outside of science. But in the case of your type of experience, I'm very conscious of the power of the mind over the body, even to the point of curing a disease--and I think that we, as a species, probably have plenty of traits that are rare enough that most of us consider it fantasy, perhaps even the ability to 'see' more than, say, a camera would. As far as not having scientific degrees or even the right words to understand or explain your experiences, you may have to live with the mystery. After all, I can see visible light--but I couldn't really explain it--how it works or what it means. If your life includes something wonderful, it doesn't mean that you have to intellectually dissect it. From the other comments, I gather that just speaking up about it means more to people than any explanation. There is often a great distance between the truths one knows and the truths one shares.

The other dimensions are opening up to the human race now Heather. It's an exciting time to be alive. If you can see energy fields, you have a beautiful gift. Can you see auras? I feel things going on around me all the time, and can often predict events. Probably just being intuitive. Had an experience years ago, similar to Rob's wife's experience when she was reassured she was going to be okay. I was told, in a way that I got the message loud and clear, that I too was going to be okay after a traumatic diagnosis. Without that reassurance from somewhere, I would have been a total basket case in that I hadn't previously ever been ill with more than a head cold. I am deeply interested in the other realms that interweave with us. Quantum physics is fascinating. Have been dipping into it, but as a layman. I'm not a scientist. Nonetheless, I'm getting it. Truly believe in the power of our minds. I look forward to more from you on this subject and your own spiritual revelations. Thank you Heather, for such an insightful article.

Joan, it sounds like we're at a similar space. I would love to talk with you and bounce ideas around. I don't see aura (I'll add 'yet') and only recently have become aware of colours more regularly. I have a lot to learn and while it's good to learn from others and read books I'm also learning that my experience is different from other's and I have to trust my own self and the way these things present to me. When the experience is there it is unmistakable. My reiki master, a wise old man, tells me that I mustn't listen to the self chatter that negates what I'm experiencing. I hope that by writing about this 'stuff' it will encourage others to do the same.

Bravo Heather You have taken that first step which is the important one. You talk about a subject that is fascinating to me. I believe we would all be better people if we knew our true self first.

Thank you Queenie. I don't think I'm a leader (rather trying to catch up!!) but my niche is I think about stuff I don't understand and share it anyway! ;-) It does help me grow more and get my thoughts consolidated. I hope it's helpful for both me and others who are in a similar place. Your comment was kind and so appreciated.
