How to Raise Your Conscious Awareness in Spirituality

Have you ever wondered how you can effectively raise your conscious awareness? There has been so much talk about the shift in our planet, but has anybody given a clear and decisive way on how to do so now? One of many persons has uncovered the truth on how humans can now shift their level of conscious awareness. That person is Eckhart Tolle. In his book the Power of Now, he demonstrates that the unconscious mind is what humans are mostly using in their day to day lives. Not even realizing that we need to utilize our inner consciousness instead and observe the egoistic unconscious mind rather that be a part of it.

The ego mind in a human being can be so destructive that many people are so enveloped in it that they think that it is all there is to themselves. Not ever looking deeper within themselves to determine that there is indeed an inner awareness that lies beneath it all. An awareness that is so divine and miraculous that points to who we truly are as one consciousness throughout the whole planet. Although, it may seem that we are all disconnected in this world, the fact of the matter is that we are not. Our different perspectives on how we see the world gives the appearance of differences and individualistic view points. This is in place by design to help us all better understand on how our differences can help shape us and give us a better understanding of life on this physical reality.

Following your excitement will lead you towards the path of what you want to do in life. It is your natural resonant frequency and when you follow your excitement, an increase in vibration can be reached.

Understanding the stillness and looking within ourselves

Most people minds are filled with such daily chatter that most people cannot ever seem to escape the madness of it all. When the mind is quiet, that is when you can understand your awareness better. If ever a thought or emotion arises, be the observer instead of the participant in that thought or emotion. Being the observer of your emotions and thoughts automatically increases your conscious awareness by understanding that you are not your ego mind at all. But the observer of such reaction of life that causes thoughts and emotions to enter your mind. When you become aware of all of your thoughts that enter in your mind and observe them, you can then also observe them disappear the same way they arrived. You are not your thoughts or emotions.

What we truly are is the stillness in between the gaps of words that you are reading here. The quiet stillness that is observed when meditating, walking though nature or just breathing in and out can allow you to experience this increase in consciousness within yourself. When faced with natural life situations that expect an egoic reaction out of you, next time be the observer of your reactionary thought patterns and emotions that are created when you experience these things. The observer within yourself is the true self that is pure consciousness. The more you practice this method each and every day the longer the gaps are from the daily mind chatter in your head. This will allow you to escape from a world that is dominated by egoic actions and concepts that really do not matter in your lives.

Being the observer allows you to monitor your thoughts and emotions instead of being a part of them as you hurt yourself and others around you with the ego mind that thinks it is always in charge. Remember that the ego self within all of us is not who we truly are. The years of conditioning have instituted an egoic self identity that we thinl is us, but is not. Escaping the egoic mind and observing it within our internal conscious self is what will allow us to break the barriers of decades of conditioning. This will allow us to break the barriers and release ourselves form the prison of our minds and finally be free to understand that NOW is all there ever is. When we understand that there truly is no past or future, then we can understand that NOW is all we have and all we ever will ever have. The knowingness of NOW also helps us enter into the inner consciousness that has always been within us since the beginning. All we need to do is be aware of it and accept this as our true selves.

The Difference Between Religion and Spirituality

Religion has always been a hot topic but lately the old views of religion are going away because more and more people are embracing their spirituality that is within themselves. Religion teaches people the aspects of fear and judgement. There is no such thing in spirituality. When it comes to religion people are taught to give their problems to God or Jesus, hence not taking their own responsibility for themselves and learning from that. If people continue to stay in the vibration of fear all of their lives they will not be able to evolve as a soul in this universe. Instead of waiting for Christ to return, people need to realize and awaken to the Christ consciousness within themselves instead and remember who they truly are. The truth is that we are all one and there is nothing else.

We live through SOURCE, as I would like to call it, through experiences and embracing the ever changing opportunities to evolve as a soul in this vast universe filled with unlimited opportunities. So, instead of instilling fear and hating each other, let's each of us try to raise our vibratory level through meditation, helping others and giving a more positive and happier expression to each and every person that we meet in our lives. If you see someone that needs help, help them. Be more loving to each other and embrace the fact that we are all connected as one consciousness and one consciousness alone. Yes, we are literally talking to each other, for there is no one else but us. The minute we embrace this truth, the more different the world becomes and you can understand things as you expand your consciousness in this reality.

Do you believe in a multi-verse? We indeed are multi dimensional beings that can experience life in the most unlimited ways to better understand ourselves. The multi-dimensional aspect of ourselves is really quite amazing because we are free to experience anything that is possible for us to achieve. That is if we wish to experience it. The idea of going forward and backward into time sounds really interesting, does it not? In fact, there is not time in the spiritual realm as we experience it in this physical reality. Therefore, all past and future lives that we ever experience is happening simultaneously. This may be hard to believe, but remember that we are all light energy beings having a human experience. Not the other way around. Religion ties people down in groups and restricts others from entering if their beliefs are not met. In spirituality, all is welcome and not seen as indifferent. All you have to do is re-member who you are that is inside of you. The material world is here for you to experience life in a way that you could never do in the spiritual realm. So make it your best yet!

The whole idea of spirituality is to expand your consciousness and awareness of all that is within yourselves and to evolve in a never ending realization and growth of ourselves.

My views on reality and the universe

My views on reality and the universe may be quite different from most disconnected people out there. The reason that I say this is that the concepts and ideas that I see in my mind may be much different to those that actually maintain the status quo of living, never pushing their minds to explore newer realities that exist outside of their box of common or conventional thinking.

Although, we are quite limited in our bodies in what we can do at any given moment, we must come to realize that we are all energy. Yes, this is what I meant. In reality and in discovering who we truly are is this notion alone. We are all indeed energy learning from each other experiences and wonder. Two energies coming together to appeal to each other is the cause and form of many relationships coming together. Imagine two different forms of energy alien to another yet the same. Both have experienced many things in previous lives with the mixture of feelings and emotion. Now they meet each other and want to learn and grow more while their energy is together. This experimentation with each other lets the two energies merge as one and leave whenever it wants to. In most cases you can see these energies appeal to each other because these differences strike a curiosity that is different from one another. This is how life is. We learn and grow from each other in order to constantly evolve and grow. For when we stop growing and evolving, it is almost like being dead in a sense. Curiosity is one of the most intriguing aspects of life when it comes to energy and how it relates with the world around us.

The energy that I am referring to can be called the soul, for example. Within our own spirit we can create new realities and universes while also experiencing that of others. Sometimes people get together as a group to learn more from each other. Spirits come back each and every time in many incarnations in different roles to better understand each other and life itself. There is no doubt that there is much to experience in life and all that it has to offer us. The physical realm is one particular idea. In this realm, the disconnection from who we truly are is quite amazing to comprehend. This reality allows us to experience a certain way of life that we are not at first accustomed to. Because remember, as a soul or energy, we can do and go where ever we please. There is no time as we really no it because there is nothing else but us. Time is yet again a creative idea that we formed in this 3d realm to give us a different perspective of life as we know it. I do understand that we are all one consciousness.

The energy within us is ever constant and always moving because it wants too. Imagine a cigarette smoke in the air. As the smoke flows through the air it is moving, turning and twisting. In fact we are very similar to the moving patterns of this type of energy. The transfer of physical abilities and information from one person to another works in this way as well. It is an exchange of universal energy within us that allows a psychic to download data from another individual by this transfer of energy. If we are here to better understand life, each other and this existence within ourselves, we must never stop in the pursuit to grow and evolve as a consciousness, ever. The universe is in fact all of our energies combined. If you view the internal aspects of the brain structure, you will see how it is very similar to that of the layout of our universe. The same goes with the retina of our eyes. Similarities are very close when viewing a nebula and perceiving it as that of a human eye. When energy speeds up, it is literally raising it frequency or vibration higher than what it used to be. This is also a form of evolution when we as energy, placed ourselves at such a low frequency to enable the comprehension of lifting ourselves from lower density vibration to higher ones. This allows the soul energy to grow and better understand itself when it is most disconnected to all that is, what we really are and have felt originally. Originally, we are at one and at peace with all that is. Giving our energies a bit of disconnection in this reality that we live in allows us to understand life much differently than if we were an ever constant presence, never changing and being the same. Therefore this is one way of determining our existence in this way of disconnection from source. That is my take on things. Feel free to add on with positive comments below. Thanks.

Good hub. However, He is not the only one to have discovered this as you stated in your first paragraph. I admire Eckhart Tolle's work and have several of his books.

I have been part of a school of meditation for over 13 years and consciousness is what we deal with - mapping it, awareness of it etc. You may be interested in some of my hubs on the subject. Regardless, his teachings are very good.

G’day

Utterly true in all sense, the neg or pos ego isn’t who we truly are but we have come here to experience such emotions otherwise we wouldn’t be here as there are many more realities that are far less egotistical than this one so why choose such a neg egotistical existence if our spirit didn’t choose too? Our inner being chose to experience such knowing but what we haven’t experienced yet, to any degree, is the pos egotistical aspects of humanistic emotions & I believe this is the next evolutional step for mankind, well hopefully anyway!!

As for myself, well I’m quite the opposite to most spiritually aware people, I’m not chasing to be more aware or trying to remember who I am because I know I came here to experience such emotions but I also feel we need to change our neg egotistical world into a more pos dominated world for the main reason of species survival.

Personally, my human ego self dislikes the way the world has evolved & the personal circumstances I live under at times but my inner being knows that I’m here to enjoy the show no matter how horrid it seems. Once we are aware of the difference of our inner & outer environmental selves we can then allow these two reality to pos coexist. By not allowing these two worlds to coexist has produced the world we have today, a neg egotistic existence.

A strange concept I know but that is how I feel it to be!!

Love

Hi Matthew. Well it's the positive aspects of the ego that is part of the transformation process. In the process of awakening and awareness it is the aspiration to use the positive and higher elements of the ego, this is paramount. Unfortunately the term ego has bad press. Probably because the majority of humans are caught in the lower aspects of their ego. In the school of meditation that I am associated with the ego is referred to with a capital E. Ego is essentially the Self. It is the soul forces, character traits that we use to create and communicate as humans. If our landscape is clouded by our perception via the negative traits of our ego, this is where we are caught in the mire, the dross. However, once in the higher aspects the perception of the world changes. Paradoxically, it's only by changing ourselves that the world changes. Having said that, it doesn't pay to be ignorant. The world is not in a good situation. Whether you are an advanced spiritual initiate or not, the world is in a fallen state. Perception via rose colored glasses does no-one any good.

I don't see your standpoint as a strange concept at all.

Jewel, you must be as loony as me then, we need more loony people in the world!!!:)

It's funny that a lot of spiritually aware people think as the ego being just neg but in fact it's both polarities it's just we are used of the neg side of the ego dominating but that is about to change.

I'm a fence sitter I'm afraid but humanly & spiritually I seem to be comfortable with that at the time being but I do know that's about to change unfortunately however it is good to confirm this idealism with others.

Love

Mathew

PS I'm a bit of a joker sometimes so don't take me to heart as I won't of you!!!

I like humor too!

Thing is, if you didn't have an ego you would not be writing hubs. It's the thing required to animate the 'puppet' for better or worse. Our state of consciousness would be entirely different, our perceptions, our physicality - our denseness, absolutely everything. For most, fathoming this phenomena is beyond the realms of understanding. But of course, it's also the ego that is perilous.

Rudolph Steiner speaks of the transformed ego, and essentially uses the higher Ego to separate humans from the animal. Effectively, it's the only element that distinguishes us different from them.

I've joined up to three spiritual forums & at the moment the topic on the ego seems to be on the agenda.....it's funny but I've been telling people on these forums it's the ego that is this reality of ours, without the ego we wouldn't have this reality or our physical selves the way it is, I'm not well excepted on this view!!

This is probably why it's only you & I at the moment but it doesn't matter how many times you discuss this topic something new always comes out of it......thank you for that Jewels.

Well it's clear that many people don't really understand what the Ego is. As you have understood - without it you'd be a muted blob. Perhaps the fallen ego would be a more useful term for what people think is the ego. As it's the fallen ego that gets us into a lot of tumultuous trouble. It is that part that is corrupt and corruptible.

Be aware that when people have squared away their knowledge - 1. they are often closed to variations, 2. they are blind-sighted and will therefore not raise their consciousness. Discussions can become fruitless. After-all it's the task of the mind to put things into a nicely wrapped box in order to keep peace within, which is not actually peace, it's a closed mind which is ignorance.

Tis very unfortunate that for a long time the term ego has been spoken about as that thing that is detrimental to harmony and spiritual growth. Nothing can be further from the truth. Paradoxically, it's very unlikely one can go beyond the ego if one suppresses it, ignores it and treats it as an enemy. You cannot transform what you cannot see, or refuse to see.

So it is by transforming the little ego that one transcends into the Higher Ego. Then you have at your disposal the ability to be in the world but not of it. To be extraordinary instead of ordinary. Awakened instead of asleep.

How Tolle's work is a gem is the continual call towards the now, or the center of oneself. And not buying into any external pulls which are either orientated by other people, or the discursive mind. The discursive mind is the more dangerous of the two!

Another gem of info is that the Ego (capital E) is beyond the discursive mind. You cannot be in the Ego (cap E) and still be in the discursive mind. It's not a state of ordinary mental consciousness, whereas the little ego is all chitta - or discursive mind.

Well thank you Jewels for that informative reply, I do think or more to the point feel that every one will just know of this one day as if by magic for we are coming into some very magical times again in human history.

Keep up the beautiful work Jewel, if there is ever an angel you would have to be one of them!!:)
