I often speak with my clients about horizontal, vertical, and circular (sacred) time.I am beginning this post within a fortnight of horizontal time from my previous birthday. On that day I moved on from the end of my 58th year to enter into another year of experience, practice, and evolution of being me; spirit grounding in body while using the tools of mind and emotions to enable the journey forward. Such will be the process of my 59th trip around our Sun.
The vertical aspect of time, first described by quantum physicist Hugh Everitt III, in 1957, contains “choice points” of infinite possibilities of manifestation from the future. We attract and manifest from this field of infinite potential. I call this process the attraction and manifestation of a future memory.
We are accustomed to having our Now being informed by past memory, but the Now is also informed by future memory. Circular, or sacred time, as it is called by the shamans and mystics, is the consideration of the quantum hologram of time, the fractal infinity of Now…all time is happening at once.
You might also keep in mind an alternative, and etymologically accurate, meaning for the word “present.” We are used to considering the word “present” in terms of its relationship to Now, or, present time. We may also consider the word “present” by dividing and conquering its inner meaning. The word actually means “pre sent.” All of the Now has been pre sent and informed by our past memory and future memory. The present is also a gift…a present.
As Einstein once said, “The purpose of time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” He was referring to horizontal time, even as he was aware of vertical time. His humorous, brain teasing comment was offered to help reduce mass consciousness confusion about the new concepts in quantum theory called vertical time and circular time.
The first fortnight of time after my birthday is my time to get my sight alignment, and sight picture, and trigger control. Trigger control mostly involves how one is managing their inner world of breath control. If you desire a “good shot;” i.e., a good manifestation, you will learn about the alignment of your vibrational offering (sight alignment) with your vibrational attraction (sight picture), and how the Universe has to manifest that desire for you. An important secret is in the inner world of your breath, and where it merges, around your Heart.
The breath enters the body bringing in with it more than just the oxygen that we need for cellular metabolism; the breath brings the subtle elements of our sustenance, entering the core of our being, and merges around the Heart. The Heart is the seat of the mind. I sometimes call this sacred place Heart Mind. We create the future memory of what we manifest from the vibrational energetic of the Heart Mind. This topic will recur in these writings well into the future.
In the wording of the previous paragraph we moved from the Zen of Skill at Arms to the mystery and mastery of Breath, to Heart Mind, to manifestation of a future memory. Seeming incongruities, or implausibilities, are often an invitation for us to stretch out of our familiar comfort zone of conditioned thinking and feeling. We must attempt to move our mind and consciousness beyond the seeming paradoxes which life brings to us. All of the great spiritual teachers have encouraged us to embrace paradox and incongruity in order to expand the reach of our consciousness.
These days, the word “fortnight” is rarely used. That is to say, I am the only one in my circle of friends and contacts that I hear using the word fortnight. I used it recently and my friend asked me, “What’s a fortnight?” It is a wonderful word from the Old English “feowertyne niht,” which is fourteen nights. It is half of a lunar cycle, which is another way of thinking about it.
I also think of a fortnight as a regular old 2 week period of time in which I can exercise some passion. Of course every moment is evolving into the next 14 days, and I attempt to hold this fractally nested concept of the evolving Now, with just the number 14.
People numerologically associated with”two sevens” seem to be inherently and intrinsically lucky people. The number 14 is also associated with the descriptive of Enthusiasm.
I went a little further, and looked up Enthusiasm in the dictionary so as to get my sights straight on the etymology. This word is from Greek “enthousiasmous,” and means “to be inspired.” And we are back to the breath. What are we doing in our breath?
There is a pause between every in-breath and every out-breath that most of us pay no attention to. There should be more focus on the Pause. The Pause is also known by others as the Gap. What is happening in the Pause?
I think of a symphony, and we are sitting in the concert hall listening to the sound of the symphony. It is a string of notes from a great number of coordinated instruments and players. The arms attached to the stringed instruments are in their vigor, and others muster their breath, exhaling into the fluted tubes. Somebody is waving a magic wand. Cymbals and drums and ongoing melodic vibration are filling the hall and penetrates the flesh of all who listen.
It’s a good thing they have pauses in between those coordinated notes and when to take these pauses! Otherwise, the flesh would be subject to nothing more than discordant cacophony. Such chaos of sound creates vibrational disturbance in the electromagnetic process of the heart, so the new science shows.
The Pause between the in-breath and the out-breath helps bring the restful, peaceful Heart Mind. The Heart Mind informs the Brain Mind, and if the Brain Mind is not overriding this valuable and timely energetic, then we are more willing and able to follow our hearts.
Brain Mind typically overrides Heart Mind if a variety of traumas are held in the flesh, and upon being triggered at the subconscious and conscious levels, we get to relive a reflexive trauma memory, and lapse back into yet another repetition of Brain Mind running the autonomic nervous system around the block again, grinding another imprint of memoried trauma into the flesh, the body, the field of the subconsciousness, and into the surrounding and interpenetrating Light Body, and beyond.
Forgiveness is the only way we heal. In various forms of martial training and preparedness practices the saying goes, “Train like you fight! Fight like you train!” It’s true, one will fight like they have trained…poorly, or well.
Train well. Entrain forgiveness. Non judgement and Self Love will follow. Your spiritual warrior will emerge. Traumatic imprinted memory vibrates in our field from the Heart Mind, attracting another manifestation of the trauma imprint. We must forgive these traumas out of our flesh and Light Body, and even beyond into near distant fields.
The Creek Indians were the indigenous tribe of native Americans in Alabama and part of Georgia before they were made to go to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears. The Creeks used to describe the Divine Creator with a special term.
They used a terminology which I shall attempt to spell here, “Esaugetu Emissee.” You can pronounce this phonetically, as you please. Esaugetu Emissee means Master of the Breath, or Breath Holder. Esaugetu Emissee is a nice descriptive of a primordial Creator of the Universe. Universe is a word which means “One Song.”
We are breathed by the Universe, we are breathed by One Song. When the Universe stops breathing these bodies we live in, then we drop the body, cross over into life after life, and then we are breathed yet again via a more subtle breath. Earth plane is just a classroom extension of Heaven, or Paradise. Nothing is separate in the quantum singularity, though dimensions seem to separate the finer and denser frequencies of the manifestation of this Singularity.
In the late 1970’s I was in surgical residency training in New Orleans and then Baltimore, and I began to study from the teachings of Kashmir Shaivism some esoteric and vital information. There is a certain sound which the breath makes on the way into the field of the quantum Infinity of the heart, and there is a certain sound that the breath makes on its way out from the heart into the quantum Infinity of the field around us.
When you are quiet and gentle and when you focus on the sound of the breath, you can hear these sounds on the in and out on either side of the Pause. The Pause is located at the end of inhalation, and also at the end of exhalation. As you listen intently, the Pause begins to widen in meditation. The in breath sounds like the Sanskrit syllable “Ham,” which means “I Am.” The out breath sounds like the Sanskrit syllable “Sa,” which means “That.”
The ancients who gave us the oldest languaging on earth, Sanskrit, devised seed syllables of sounds which resonated meaning inside of our flesh, the body, the field of the subconsciousness. These syllabic sounds also require some Pause to punctuate them into our evolution.
The breath is informing us to step out of the illusion of separation, the greatest illusion of all. We feel and believe at the level of Brain Mind that we are separate from everything else, but this is not the case in the quantum hologram, or Mind of God. The breath informs us by its very sound, HamSa. “I am That. That I am.”
This sound and meaning revolve on and on with each breath. Listen inside and outside with a certitude of quietness which is known in the Pause.
The modern day Indian teacher Bhagavan Nityananda, said , “The Heart is the hub of all sacred places. Go there, and roam in It.”
While these words were once an abstract concept in my past, I could always feel the statement resonating in my heart. As time passed, I began to feel and know.
Nityananda’s words have continued to inform how I attract and manifest my evolving understanding of an important spiritual truth. I designed a model to guide my future understanding. The model keeps me on track, and therefore offers me a tool to offer to others to keep them on track.
I call this model Haelan LifeStream, and it is founded on Heart based consciousness. Haelan LifeStream is a learning process about body, mind, emotion, and spirit; all centered on Heart Mind and Heart Mind’s inseparable holographic quantum entanglement with the One Mind of All…the one song of I am That.
I use a simple prayer to help me stay focused on these concepts of circular time…
Bless my past life, bless my present life, bless my future life.
In using this prayer I know that it includes all people and events and circumstances which were in my life in the past, in the present, and in the future. Of course I know that this is all happening in the Now. This is one simple Heart centered way to pray for every one and every thing.
