What is the Key to Moving into Collective Heart coherence?
This is quite the question and I believe it requires a lifetime to answer and has many different facets that can be explored. We are each unique beings and our Destinies are interwoven together and yet, each of us will find the Path to Heart Coherence on our own terms.
A quote below, by Master Zhuang, who was a Chinese philosopher, has always made an impression with me from the first moment I read it in book.
“Once upon a time, I, Chuang Chou, dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, a veritable butterfly, enjoying itself to the full of its bent, and not knowing it was Chuang Chou. Suddenly I awoke, and came to myself, the veritable Chuang Chou. Now I do not know whether it was then I dreamt I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly dreaming I am a man. Between me and the butterfly there must be a difference. This is an instance of transformation.”
We learn at some point on the Path of awakening that all Life on Earth is inter-connected Web of Life called The Dream.
An engaging, and highly seductive reality that is experienced, perceived, and felt in an unending number of permutations by each of us.
Our personal Karma, genetic ancestral lines, soul learnings, and collective morphogenetic fields, make up this dreaming that is unique to each one of us, and HOW we relationally move through it.
The Key to dancing with Life as we know it is to learn to come into Heart Coherence. This is discussed by the Heartmath Institute as:
“Coherence is the state when the heart, mind and emotions are in energetic alignment and cooperation,” HeartMath Institute Research Director Dr. Rollin McCraty says. “It is a state that builds resiliency – personal energy is accumulated, not wasted – leaving more energy to manifest intentions and harmonious outcomes.”
Each of us brings to the table our own ways in which we personally achieve Coherence. I have chosen to champion and focus on building compassion and Love through the use of ceremonial Sound meditations that regenerate the nervous system and create DEEP CALM and Alpha/Theta brain wave States. I call my business Original Frequency and I practice Conscious Sleep or Dream Yoga.
The cousin to this, practiced by many, is known as Yoga Nidra. Wikipedia describes it as such:
“Yoga Nidra is a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, like the “going-to-sleep” stage. It is a state in which the body is completely relaxed, and the practitioner becomes systematically and increasingly aware of the inner world by following a set of verbal instructions. The practice of yoga relaxation has been found to reduce tension and anxiety. The autonomic symptoms of high anxiety such as headache, giddiness, chest pain, palpitations, sweating and abdominal pain respond well. It has been used to help soldiers from war cope with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)”
Using the power of the Conscious Sleep Journey, also known as Ceremonial Dream Yoga I weave a variety of instruments together into an Ocean or Tapestry of Sound Frequencies that penetrate your body giving you a “sonic massage” and enlivening your energy pathways known in TCM (traditional Chinese Medicine) and acupuncture studies as Meridians.
One of the key features to this sound journey is the phenomenon that people have the opportunity to explore called Lucid Dreaming. After about 20 minutes or so, most of us fall into the Theta Brain wave state and begin to deeply relax and our Inner Worlds begin to come alive. We see colours, have flash insights of creativity, images come and go, and we “day-dream” very readily in this stage.
What exactly is Sleep or Dreaming? What occurs during this time when supposedly we aren’t aware of being in either space? Can one awaken inside the Dream of Life and can one awaken while in deep sleep?
In these Conscious Sleep Sound Journeys, we have the chance to awaken within the Dreaming and become conscious to the landscape within. Being able to self direct in your dreams is known as Lucid Dreaming. I also like to add that any “teaching” dream, a dream where you learn a profound insight into yourself or others, or a dream that causes you to change your waking world, is also within the realms of Lucid Dreaming.
Heart coherence occurs when we synch our hearts and minds together and Dream or Breathe as ONE. The power of the many multiplies into a Wave that pulses through our group and Lifts us into a vibratory state. In this state I like to say that we become frequency and forget for a moment that we are solid bodies. In THAT state, we can do the impossible!
As we move into the New energies of 208, I invite you into the Mystery of Coherent Conscious Sleep, Yoga Nidra, Lucid Dreaming, Dream Yoga, and Sonic Meridian Massage. I invite you to find your Original Frequency and radiate it!
