The emerging new consciousness, the enneagram and The return to soul

To become conscious is the first step to inner peace… and its collective benefit, peace among people. But just what is that of which we are to become conscious? The short answer is that we are to be consciousness of our true nature, the soul, and the true reality of being. Becoming conscious is not a new thing. Jesus christ’s message is replete with the invitation to consciousness. Christ not only asks us to love our neighbor but to love our neighbor as we would love ourselves. This simple yet profound instruction is a divine summary of consciousness. In one complete thought it demonstrates that indeed all of us are of one common source, and in loving others we are loving ourselves. It is impossible however, to love one another or ourselves if we are preoccupied with the ego, its fears and desires which cause separation and suffering. This is where christ’s invitation to consciousness comes in: “turn and become as a little child” he said, which can mean to live out of our soul instead of our ego. This is the key to peace. The way of the soul is the way to peace.

As humanity is plagued with rising conflict and with planetary demise, the soul can be easily discarded or it can be radically called forth. We, the inhabitants of earth are going to destroy ourselves or as an alternative, become aware of our spiritual connectedness to one another and thereby avoid the insanity of self-extinction. The awareness of our mutual dependence and our common spiritual source will enable the human species to survive. To this end, the consciousness movement seeks to call forth the soul. In this endeavor, many can benefit from the wisdom of the enneagram in that this ancient and powerful study provides a unique gateway to the life of soul and to consciousness itself.

The enneagram is simply a map of the flow of divine energy. It is a tremendous tool for understanding personality and for spiritual development. Yet astonishingly, within this map is also a far more valuable treasure. There is wise guidance as to how to return to our truest and purest nature. This return to soul is what stops the suffering. Essentially, the enneagram is a map to soul return. The problem with the concept of soul in modern culture is that for the most part, it is an unknown quantity and therefore remains illusive. To those of ancient wisdom however, the soul is a well-known and essential fact of life.

It is for the above reasons that dr raymond moody has joined “the institute of conscious being” as a faculty member. Dr. moody’s acclaimed research, his expert knowledge of ancient wisdom, and his writings have unlocked the way for modern culture to grasp and to integrate into consciousness, the all important idea of soul. And with the emerging new consciousness all over the planet, there is a hunger to re-member the soul.

The essential nature of soul was underscored by jesus when he said, ” what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world but loses his soul?” indeed, even american popular culture concedes that if anything of us survives death, it is the consciousness of the soul. Dr. moody has devoted a lifetime to the study of soul and the survival of human consciousness after physical death. His studies flesh out for the student, the ultimate nature and qualities of soul. Teachers of the enneagram have called our soul our essence because it is the essential part of our identity. The individual may ask? ” if we are to find peace by returning to our essence, our soul, just what is the soul anyway, what does my own unique soul look like, and how can I begin to know it and live out of it instead of my ego?” these are the vast questions taken on by dr. moody.

Internationally best selling author of such classics as “life after life”, dr. raymond moody and dr. joseph howell,enneagram and consciousness writer, lecturer and founder of the institute for conscious being, have been friends and colleagues for nearly forty years. Combining their fields of psychiatry, and philosophy, Clinical psychology and religious studies, they present a comprehensive teaching of consciousness never before presented.

THE AFTERLIFE: DR. RAYMOND MOODY-Web Radio Interview, article, visualizations

Dr. Sasha and Janet Lessin interview Moody on his studies of people who died but were revived.

People who barely escape death mature and feel more connected to life. Survivors of falls, near-drowning, combat, cardiac arrest and attempted suicide wind-up more spiritual, joyous and relaxed than before.

Golden Gate suicide survivors–miserable when they leaped–transformed as they fell. In the seconds before they hit water, they reviewed their lives. Rescued, they started solving their problems; they savored life, helped others and valued the divine more.

The Lessins share suggestions for listeners to take a preview journey to the afterlife.

TRANSCEND DEATH* by Sasha Lessin, Ph.D.

Grace grows in death’s jaws. Almost dying or considering your death can be enlightening.

People who barely escape death mature and feel more connected to life. Survivors of falls, near-drowning, combat, cardiac arrest and attempted suicide wind-up more spiritual, joyous and relaxed than before.

Golden Gate suicide survivors–miserable when they leaped–transformed as they fell. In the seconds before they hit water, they reviewed their lives. Rescued, they started solving their problems; they savored life, helped others and valued the divine more.

East Indians deployed doom to spur the spiritual. They threw a disturbed man to de-fanged cobras or to an elephant, trained to charge but not crush. Or they staged a trial, sentence, execution and last-minute pardon. American Plains Indians, initiating youths to spiritual adulthood, also staged near-fatal ordeals. Amazon Indians to this day evoke psychedelic death-visions in new shamans. Patients in psychedelic therapy–legal in the U.S. till the ’50s–likewise experienced dying, karmic life-review and spiritual deepening.

People of every age, culture and religion who die then revive report similar experiences. You know you died, feel peace, float out of your body. Loving relatives and friends who already died guide you to a light. A Being of Light reviews your life and shows you its purpose: learning and love.

When you almost die, you appreciate life more, take joyous responsibility, think more clearly and upset yourself less about trivia.

After a near-death, you believe in an afterlife and no longer fear death. You love others more and seek further education. You connect with everyone and everything.

Holotropic breathwork evokes similar out-of-body experiences and images. Breathwork brings back accidents, illnesses, descent through the birth canal and delivery. You experience ego-death and realize you’re much more than just your intellect.

Contemplate death with the rite below and come to peace with the fact that you’ll die. The rite helps you realize you’d better love, get honest, win your goals and fulfill your missions while you still can. It also teaches how–though you body dies–your soul, love, art, knowledge and contributions to human consciousness live on.

 

CONSIDER OTHERS’ DEATHS

Remember someone you knew who died [=X].

Imagine _____ [X] hears you now. Tell him/her what you left unsaid.

Play _____ [X] and reply.

Dialogue–switch back and forth, playing you and _____ [X].

If you’d like _____ [X] to forgive you, ask.

Hear _____ [X] forgive you.

If you held something against _____ [X], make a gesture of forgiveness and forgive him/her aloud.

Visualize your dearest living person [=Y]

Make-believe _____ [Y] has a few hours of life left, hours to spend with you.

Talk to _____ [Y] for the last time this life.

Play _____ [Y]. What, in these circumstances, do you say?

What, as you again, do you want to add?

 

CONTEMPLATE YOUR DEATH

Fantasize a final get-together with the people and animals who mean most to you. Tell all, some or one of them any unfinished feelings you have.

Say what angry feelings you have.

Tell them withholds–secrets, desires you held back.

Say what you appreciate, your loving feelings and physical impulses toward them.

Fantasize you do what you want your last week alive.

Imagine dying.

Say your last words and thoughts. Imagine your heart stops.

Forgive yourself and anyone you resented.

Separate from your body and suffering. Feel relief and peace.

See, from above, the people nearby. Try, but fail to talk to and touch them. Realize you died.

Whoosh down a tunnel toward the spirits of loved ones who already died.

These guiding spirits take you to the Being of Light, the karmic guide or the Life-Review Committee, who show you the main events of your life and their consequences for others. Witness the love you gave. Review the love you got. Notice what you learned from your life, what you contributed to humanity, to the consciousness of the cosmos.

See what you need to complete–your missions and purposes–before you die “for real.” Return to this world. Wiggle your toes. Open and close your hands. Stretch. Swallow twice. Open your eyes; look at three things you enjoy seeing. Listen for three sounds you enjoy.

Holobreathing can make you think of others’ deaths too.
CONJURE A COMING INCARNATION

Imagine you spiral forward through time in a time machine. You pop out in a very special future life, your ideal future.

In the future life you enter, you’ve assimilated all the lessons of your prior incarnations, including the one you just left.

Describe this ideal future. ***

Note parts of this future you could live now. ***

 

CONJURE A COMING INCARNATION

Imagine yourself in a time machine that stops at a future life, one where you’ve completed the lessons you learned from all prior ones. Describe your ideal future.

Note aspects of this future you can live now.
