Do you need a good laugh? I know I do. Just ask my personal oracle cards. These days my head is spinning, not to mention all my subatomic particles—and the galaxies and universes entangled therewith, according to the winners of the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics. In a very ironic twist of fate, or perhaps a cosmic joke, lately my spiritual pursuits have led me back to the classroom. As described in my previous blog, it started with studying synchronicity (now a topic of academic interest) in a 12-week course offered by the Centre for Applied Jungian Studies. Intrigued by what I had learned from the lecturers, I next attempted a deep dive into the emerging world of possibilities provided by quantum physics—a snag that started with Carl Jung, father of analytical psychology (and closet alchemist) working with quantum physicist Wolfgang Pauli, winner of the Nobel Prize in 1945. The irony of this side trip on my spiritual path is that I only passed Physics in first year university by having a lab partner who was a genius at doing the experiments but had terrible penmanship. I transcribed his brilliant lab notes verbatim in my neat, legible handwriting and got an A in the lab. (He didn’t!)
In a heartbeat, things that spiritually attuned people have been saying since antiquity, such as, “we are all one” have gone from being “woo-woo” to mainstream science. Which is wonderful validation for the brave souls who have dared to follow their intuition and share their experiences with the paranormal, or whatever you wish to call it. Those who pray, the meditators, the mediums, the clairvoyants, the psychics, the dreamers, the survivors of near-death experiences (NDEs), the Jungian analysts, and open-minded scientists, to name a few. The implications of the new science and new biology are mind-blowing, calling for a sea change in our perception of reality, and what is possible. Fortunately, if we are open to learning, we can begin to educate ourselves with programming on streaming platforms such as Humanity Stream + and Gaia, among others. But a word to the wise… if you are in the habit of binge-watching, this may not be the best approach to this radically new subject matter. It takes time and patience just to begin to absorb the new information, let alone make practical use of it in your own life.
The new science tells us that as humans, we each create our own perception of reality with our every thought, and can regulate our own biology. And that by engaging the “brains in our hearts” and using our Active Imagination (the right kind of AI) we can create any reality that we desire. Isn’t that interesting! As much as I am excited about the possibility of harnessing unlimited free energy from the quantum field and traveling through wormholes to visit distant relatives in faraway galaxies, most days I could be quite content in the type of magical reality pictured in Thomas Kinkade images. Where the weather is always perfect, trees and flowers are always in bloom and self-pruning, quaint cottages with thatched roofs maintain themselves, the lights are always on, talking horses graze peacefully on grounds that self-landscape, and so on.
What I have learned so far is that the delivery system in the entangled field of infinite possibilities cannot be rushed. And that striving too hard to manifest one’s perfect reality will likely backfire and leave you disappointed. Baby steps are required. Lately I have been following the work of acronym-loving retired US Navy commander and now gifted medium Suzanne Giesemann, who is teaching others her “Bless me” 7-step method of making contact in meditation with those on the other side, from passed loved ones to great masters such as Jesus, to mythical Norse gods like Odin. All of whom will provide convincing “no other explanation (NOE)” evidence of their existence in your material world! And, being beyond space and time, will offer amazing advice and answers to your questions. How I would love to have that kind of connection with other beings in the All That Is, at the shift of a switch! I would be talking to them all day!
When I have not been glued to the tube, trying to take in all this new information, I have been reading two books by Robert Moss, about creating the life of our dreams through active dreaming, a form of waking meditation, as I understand it. I have made some progress there, because of some amazing synchronicities in my waking life with stories in his book. But for the most part I remain in a “dream drought” while I sleep. I have started keeping a dream journal and so far, all that has come through is an image of a thatched-roof cottage. What I find discouraging in practicing the approaches of both these fine teachers is that during meditation, my third eye, my mind’s eye, seems to be blank. I can still my mind and have no thoughts for fifteen or twenty minutes and follow the steps to invite in whoever wants to connect with me, but nothing happens. And then I just go to sleep. And get up the next day and watch more TV or read more books, and try again.
Time to go back to the basics. Each morning since 2009 I have done an Archangel (AA) oracle card reading. Not surprisingly, my second favourite deck of oracle cards is Magical Unicorns. Recently I have also started reading the Bible for daily guidance. Yesterday I received the Patience card from AA Jophiel. Duly noted. Today I received the Clairvoyance card from AA Raziel, the angelic alchemist, telling me that they are working on my spiritual sight. And reminding me that there are many forms of clairvoyance, some of which I already experience. Just not the stunning visions I would love to see, and the clairaudient conversations I would love to have. Again, duly noted. I know, I need to be patient. Let go and let God.
Last night I knew I needed to walk away from the books and the meditation for a while and just do something light and enjoyable. I felt the urge to do a jigsaw puzzle, which is typically a relaxing activity that keeps me sharply focused in the present moment and gives me an odd sense of accomplishment. Given my recent brush with quantum physics, I probably should have steered clear of this one, but I decided to tackle a 759-piece “Escape Puzzle” with a mystical observatory theme. I separated all the edge pieces from the rest and started to construct the frame. This puzzle contains a mystery to be solved, after assembling all the pieces. How intriguing! Great, let’s get started! As I began fitting the framework together, I noted with interest that some of the edge pieces had numbers written on them. Numerical clues, duly noted.
Unfortunately, almost all the edge pieces seemed to fit together nicely in any order, and they are rendered in such dark colours that I could barely distinguish one from the next, even under the laser beam of my IKEA desk lamp. On top of that, the instructions advised that the image on the box was not the same as the image made by the puzzle. What? This was not fun, so I decided to leave it, and try again with better light in the morning.
During the night, I had a dream. Not really a dream, just two words that I heard clearly. “Plymouth Rock.” Being a student of Suzanne Giesemann’s masterclass, I knew to immediately do my online research about this rock and discovered that it is located in Plymouth, Mass, the historical landing site of the Pilgrims in the Mayflower. This rock has been preserved, and is inscribed with the date, 1620. Bingo! I was convinced that I would find this number on my puzzle pieces and that it would provide insight into solving the mystery. I rushed over to the puzzle, expecting to find it. Nope. No 1620. At that point, I chucked all the separated edge pieces in a bag and put the puzzle away, for now.
Fortunately, the Unicorns had been following along, and came to my rescue. From their deck I drew the Laughter card. They advised me that lately I have been much too serious and that I need to laugh more. I have been laughing as I write this, and I hope you find it amusing. When I am next in the mood to do a puzzle, the one I have lined up is a light-hearted one called Midnight at the Library. Oh and by the way, have a close look at the white "cobblestone" that the characters on the Laughter card created by artist John Philip Wagner are prancing upon by clicking on the image. Synchronistically, it looks exactly like the new format of the special wax I use for making my Alchemy colour-changing candles. The Laughter card in the Magical Unicorns deck dates back to 2005. The wax format was changed from flakes to beads in 2023. Explain that mystery!
