As my clients and I have healed and grown over the years, we’ve evolved through the levels of consciousness. I thought I’d share this with you, so you’d know what you have to look forward to. I can tell you from personal experience that life keeps getting better both internally and externally.
The lowest level of consciousness is that of HOSTILITY. People at this level have been raised in a family or environment where they were subjected to physical (and sometimes sexual) and emotional violence. Sometimes they experienced abuse at the hands of healing professionals. In this state, people perceive the world as populated with perpetrators. In order to protect themselves, they approach others with open hostility. They live in a state of hyper vigilance, a very uncomfortable way to live. Fortunately, we can heal the trauma with HBLU™ and people move to the next level of consciousness, that of GUARDED.
At the level of GUARDED, people perceive the world as potentially but not necessarily dangerous and they protect themselves from people and circumstances by not letting anyone in. By that I mean, they don’t share their inner thoughts, opinions, and most of all their feelings. At this level, people are a lot more comfortable than at the previous level and function well professionally and socially. The problem is it is difficult to really connect with others and have close personal and intimate relationships. People at this stage often do not feel supported by others, the world, or God. Fortunately, we can heal the family system patterns, personality structures, and other life experiences that keep people stuck at this stage, so they can move to the next level of consciousness, that of PRESENT.
The next level of consciousness is the level of PRESENCE. At this level, people are comfortable with themselves and others. They feel really alive in the moment, experiencing life while they’re living it. This is in contrast to dwelling on the past or obsessing about what the need to do next in the future. When I finally arrived at this level, I felt that I had missed large chunks of my life. I was grateful that I could now have my life while I was living it. I developed the following procedure for being present:
THE HBLU™ PRESENCE PROCESS
Notice when your mind is someplace else
Take a deep breath all the way to your bottom to feel present in your body
Look around you to connect with your present surroundings
Tell yourself “here I am now, in this situation, doing X”
Enjoy the experience
Here I am now, in Florida, swimming in the ocean, feeling myself jump up and down in the warm waves, looking at the blue sky with a few white clouds and at the minnows when I put my face in the water with my goggles.
Here I am now, in my office, sitting in my swivel chair, looking at my client, listening to his/her story, while feeling my reactions and making associations with the patterns that might be causing the problem.
Here I am now, sitting in the choir loft, between the tenor and another soprano, during the High Holiday services, looking at my music and watching the choir director, so I can make my entrance on time.
Here I am now, in traffic, with my hands on the wheel, my foot on the pedal, my back in the seat, my eyes on the road. (this one is particularly helpful for those tough commutes)
When I reached the level of PRESENCE, I thought I had it made. I was really enjoying the experience of being alive so much that I no longer felt like escaping by reading science fiction. Then a funny thing happened on the way to enlightenment. A client (who is truly a friend) introduced me to the level of RECEPTIVE.
I had just given a healing seminar at her home with spectacular results. As I was leaving she expressed her gratitude and love for me. I replied, “You’re welcome” while internally waving away the sentiment. Her voice got louder as she said, “No, you’re not getting it. I love you.” Suddenly I realized she was right. I wasn’t getting it. I wasn’t letting it in. I was used to expressing my love for people by healing them and caring about them, but was uncomfortable letting in people’s love and caring for me. (I’m sure you are all familiar with this.)
Using HBLU™, I cleared the interference to letting love in fully. Suddenly I was surrounded in a golden bubble of light and felt a remarkable sensation of calm and well being. The next time we met, we joined energetically with a feeling of mutual love, appreciation, and respect, and truly experienced the sensation that “we are love.” Since that time, I can feel it in my heart when someone says “I love you.” It’s a warm nurturing vibration that I like very much. I’m now recommending it to everyone.
One sunny Monday in June, 4 clients in a row blessed me. It wasn’t that they were just expressing their appreciation; they actually said, “I bless you Judith.” As if 3 blessings weren’t enough for me to get the point, the fourth woman actually turned to me, put her hands on my shoulders, looked me in the eyes and gave me the blessings of the grandmothers www.grandmothersspeak.com!
Already familiar with the uncomfortable feeling of receiving, I treated myself with HBLU™ to “receive all blessings fully.” After clearing myself, I realized that when someone blesses me it is God blessing me through that person. I felt an even deeper sense of inner peace, stability, and groundedness than I had been enjoying at the level of RECEPTIVE.
Two weeks later I hugged the groom at my cousin’s wedding. Instead of congratulating him, I spontaneously blessed him. It wasn’t just words. An energy emanated from me that flowed through him and (I felt) purified him of all his past relationship trauma while wishing him well for the future. July 24th on a News for the Soul live radio broadcast http://www.newsforthesoul.com/hblu.htm I blessed a woman with cancer (after treating her for a blocked energy field caused by diagnosis shock https://www.hblu.org/DiagnosisShock.php). Along with the sincere desire for her well-being through all time, levels, and dimensions I sent a purifying energy through her body to cleanse her of all cancer and reconstitute the perfection of her body according to the cosmic blueprint of her DNA. Perhaps it’s this energy that generates the healing power of prayer. I’ll update you as I get more experience at this level.
HAPPINESS FROM THE INSIDE
Is there a level of consciousness beyond BLESSED? I think so, and I’ve named it “HAPPINESS FROM THE INSIDE.” As usual, it was one of my insightful clients who led me to this. ‘Jane’ developed a chronic skin rash shortly after her best friend ‘Samantha’ died of cancer 11 years ago. ‘Jane’ wept every time she thought about her. In order to clear the rash, we treated Jane for the loss trauma, and we balanced Jane to move into the future (instead of remaining stuck in the past). Still, Jane wept every time she thought about Samantha.
Muscle testing revealed that weeping was Jane’s way of honoring the memory of her friend. Jane’s deepest wisdom didn’t think that weeping was how her friend would like to honored, but “I was in such denial when she was dying that I never asked how she would like to be remembered.” So we summoned Samantha ‘in spirit’ into our session. Samantha, beaming light and smiling, told us that what she had learned from spending 11 years in the beyond was the importance of being a happy person from the inside. Samantha wished that Jane would learn how to be a happy person from the inside before she died. Gratefully, we thanked Samantha and promised to pursue that goal to the best of our abilities.
Since that time, I have been having ongoing discussions with people about what is happiness? Is it a state of calm or contentment, a feeling of satisfaction? Is it a euphoric state? How do you achieve it as a constant internal state rather than seeking momentary happiness from external events?
Fortunately, others have been asking the same question. The theme of The Art of Happiness by the Dalai Lama and Howard Cutler is that “the purpose of our existence is to seek happiness… But isn’t a life based on seeking personal happiness self-centered, even self-indulgent?” The authors cite studies that show that unhappy people are the most self- focused, and happy people are more sociable, flexible, creative, loving and forgiving. This book gives suggestions about how to achieve internal happiness.
Some of my clients have put up the goal to “Be a happy person from the inside”, and we’re seeing what we can do with HBLU. This fascinating study is in progress, and Rising Through the Levels of Consciousness is a process to be continued…
