Dual-Plane Beings and the Astral-Physical Chakra Connection

Freedom could be defined as an ability to feel any feeling and accept it's value as valid. Could humanity flourish, or even exist, in this kind of world? Can Life exist in this way?

[This entry is a bit fractured and meandering; it is several parts of a much larger subject. Please consider it as notes and ideas, musings, and not specifically a piece in it's own right. It hits at many core issues of my theory of Life and I'll return to this subject often.]

Our minds freely explore any possible scenario but we learn early-on that some thoughts shouldn't be acted on and some thoughts must be denied before they enter our mind.

We can stop thoughts from ever entering our mind because we have access to the fractal-like flow of thoughts that occur in the astral mind. Thoughts originate in the physical brain, the physical body in some instances, and in the (astral) mind. When something is deemed highly inappropriate, as a means of interacting with another being, we set a rule within the mind that disallows that specific flow to begin.
For example, a young boy drops his pants when he is one and a half, diapers around his feet, and everyone laughs. He gains the idea that being without clothes is rewarding. But, by age 3 or 4 (in America) he knows that showing his penis is not appropriate. Eventually he re-opens that blocked line of thought and establishes the appropriate times and ways to show his penis.

Throughout Life we interact with the astral mind in a way that benefits our mind-body and use the physical in a way that benefits our mind-body; we are dual-plane beings. Wisdom resides in the astral and laws and labels reside in the physical.

The astral-physical relationship occurs in the chakras. It can be understood by observing the chakras and their many structures and blockages. The above paragraph about the boy is concerning the formation, restriction, and ultimate balancing of the Second Chakra.

Imagine a wild bird trapped and caged to be a pet. It's a loss of freedom and it's an increase in labels. The bird gets free food, love, safety, but has to give up flying, foraging, mating, and following it's instincts for survival. It's as though a caged bird is a different species from a wild bird because it's life purpose and expectations have altered too extremely to still be classified as as a wild bird. Both are categorized as Life however.

The creation of a human being is the formation of chakras which enable a flow between the astral mind and an individual physical being.

The purpose of the Elite is to corral the sheep into a perceived boundary of "normal". Change occurs when so many of the sheep migrate to a new idea that the Elite corralers must take action to control the flock. The actions to control the flock are either vicious or guiding, generally through war, red flag terrorism, labels, laws, or on the positive side "new" technology to ease the tension of change, provide media norms, and preoccupy the flock.

Active Gratitude, dynamic gratitude

Do we have a name for the feeling you get when you've, by choice, done something "right" and gotten a physical sense of release; when you sense the feeling of gratitude for your own good deed?
Is that Pride?
none of these fulfill the meaning of the whole situation. I'm not promoting an increase in the number of words in the English language, but this should be an essential part of our vocabulary.

This buoyant gratitude is a release of an old Karmic lesson. At some point in the past any number of people did some negative deed. The negative deed is registered and stored on a specific vibrational wave frequency. It is stored within the Akashic Hall of Records, in an astral realm, and is used to assist us in creating our physical make-up and individual chakra system before entering the physical plane.

Human life is the propagation of ideas from the Astral into the physical, creating life, then sustaining and directing the life, promoting or lessening "self guidance" for the physical being. We always have access to both the Physical Realm and the Astral Realms.

A negative deed, described above, is something that is deemed detrimental to the current model of society, held wholly in the physical. The deed does not perpetrate the same "good vs bad" ideology in the Astral.

The astral portion of a human consists of "the mind", in charge of all thought processes instantaneously, the imagination, the dream plane and more. The physical portion of a human is the brain, which holds memories and a growing definition of self, as well as the body. The body sends messages to the brain, which stores what it must, and sends on the state and setting of the physical self to the astral mind.

When someone clears an old karmic debt they tend to allow the buoyant energetic feelings of lightness, calm, relaxation, a surrender to safety; there is also a feeling of continuous connection to those who came before them. You were once helped by someone, now you help another - the vibration of helping one-another is what keeps going, not the physical action.

The magnitude of the buoyancy (during the clearing of a karmic tie) is a product of chakra clearing; as lessons and memories drop from our chakras we feel a cathartic release creating the lightness.

A super simple synopsis:
When we do something bad we gain a small astral-physical chunk in one of our chakras. It generally appears in the front half of the body. That chunk remains until your lesson is learned. When you do learn your lesson you are instantaneously connected to some others who have felt that same feeling in the past. You experience a lightness when that karma lesson is learned and the astral chakra chunk is dissolved.

Again but far more in-depth:
When we promote and/or cause victimhood a karmic chunk appears astrally in the frontal chakra related to the type of energy involved. For example, the solar plexus chakra, the Third Chakra, is the home of will. When we make willful effort to change karma our third chakra energy flows outward from the frontal third chakra. How much outward flow we can handle depends on our genetic predispositions, our experiences, upbringing, cultural trends, the number of reoccurrences, appropriate practice, and our pre-life choice for how we deal with Karma.

Chakra chunks distort our interpretation of Reality, through bias, judgment, experiences, learned behaviors, and thus influence our thoughts and actions.

As we do a specific behavior it can be tied to other people who are experiencing the opposing feeling. When these two meet, by one's own willful choice, the positive action is dissolving the past negative action. The result is a "closing of a loop" or dissolution of karma.
A good deed strengthens a good deed.
A good deed dissolves an opposite bad deed.
A bad deed strengthens a bad deed.
A bad deed dissolves an opposite good deed.
It's all about the balancing of Karma.

A simple example:
In one lifetime you are a jailor and you revel in breaking inmates' noses and raucously keeping them awake when they're trying to sleep.
In a different life you may pay for those "bad" deeds by constantly being woken up, in any number of ways appropriate to your current life, by getting your nose broken due to fighting, accidents, etc.
When the awareness occurs that your suffering is working off a past deed, and it is dissolved, a great sense of accomplishment, a joy sets in because you literally made the world a better place by your actions.

The loss of astral connectivity as children age

Upon birth, children are mostly little astrally-connected beings. They experience most of their awareness in the astral and in-so-doing retain a natural sense of interconnectedness and loving acceptance.

The main purpose of the human body is to experience a sense of individuality. We begin entirely connected to the astral, and by age 4 or so we've lost most of that connection. By age 7 it's gone almost entirely - unless in either case the child is around people who are psychic or are functional in the astral realms.

We see two main groups evolve in humanity: those who are intensely individual and those who are naturally inclined toward interconnection. Interestingly these two groups, in America for example, exhibit themselves as Conservatives and Liberals, respectively. Conservatives, as a general trend, focus on strong individuality and maintain a strong sense of ownership and personal responsibility to advance. Liberals, as a general trend, tend to want peace and interconnection, recognizing that we can help each other attain things without a serious need for competition and strong self focus. These are big generalities but the point can be made and without much stretch of the imagination it can be seen as valid, when focusing on behaviors and despite any specific political party connections.

Is there a right answer on raising your child?
One choice to be strongly individual (related to monetary and current power model "success") or raising your child to be aware of the similarities within humanity and less focused on individualistic success, maintaining that which benefits the whole. This is an enormous subject and I'll likely address it in portions now and then or in a book. Feel free to run with it and see where your contemplations bring you. I urge you to ACCEPT your child and guide them, not to follow your example necessarily, but to find their own purpose, their own value, and their own path in life. A child empowered to make their own decisions early will find more success in life than one who is severely restricted and only following orders, in my opinion; although both types of people exist in this world and may continue on until humanity evolves into two separate groups focused on the two generalities mentioned above.

Making such grandiose claims without peer reviewed research studies or physical proof would make this simply an Enlightened Musing, but certain facts can be explained by the idea of an astral-physical early childhood, then physical (and some astral) in later life.
On REM sleep: small children dream very frequently, and enter into REM sleep when first falling asleep. Adults tend to need hours of sleep and a deep sleep in order to enter REM sleep. Why would this difference happen?

Young children are still connected to the astral imagination realm. Their mind operates freely in the astral, with more imagination, dreaming, freeness of thought without labels, lack of guidelines for appropriate behavior, and without a solid sense of self. Children access the astral easier because they haven't yet learned the rules of a purely physical world.

Adults have learned that only specific behaviors are entertained as accepted and normal and thus instill those guidelines and societal expectations on themselves. This is reinforced by a very long trend of needing to belong to survive.

In conclusion, children access the astral frequently and dream easily and quickly, allowing a beautiful freeness of imagination, easy acceptance of others, a freeness in sharing, a natural tendency to help others in need, and a mind like a sponge as they very rapidly assign neural connections to their experiences, as modeled around them by adults.
Adults learn the physical restrictions and guidelines necessary in their respective societies and cultures and adhere to those guidelines. Governments, Religions, Mass Media, Bankers, etc make sure we are corralled into pigeon holes of humanity, labeled, and separated in order that we can be controlled and assure continuity of the physical human realm.

In death our body dies and our mind retains it's connection to the astral, where it decides if it must return to earth, or another physical realm, or if it can go on to attain Enlightenment, godhood, act as a bodhisattva, or enter other realms to work off karma as needed, etc, etc.

Edited to add:
The phenomenon I describe above also accounts for children not remembering their early childhood. Once we reach a certain age and our memories are stored in the brain we learn to only feel those memories and define ourselves by them. We call the free astral part of our mind our imagination, our brainstorming, etc.

It Was A Dark and Stormy Night, explained with the Fractal Expansion Wave Model

"It was a dark and stormy night", the famous quote from Edward Bulwer-Lytton's, 1830 novel Paul Clifford is one of the most emotionally influential opening lines in written history. That may or may not be accurate, given it's diverse use in the media, but the line certainly offers a sense of foreboding and an ominousness that prepares the reader or listener for feeling rather than a mere intake of words.

How did this happen? Why did those two specific words have a symbiotic relationship, an empathy-provoking spark of interest?

When a thought is initially pondered-on a sphere of energy is created in the astral and a synapse occurs in our brain. This is the moment of communication between our astral level imagination and the physical synaptic spark that creates our unique perception of the physical world. The speed of our creativity, our internal discourse, our emotions, our neurophysical response all depend on the number of neuronal connections and the amount of neurochemical reaction sites or receptors are on the neurons themselves.

Astrally this process is a fractal-like expanding series of spheres. They vary in size, color, density, energy level, and karmic value. Each successive astral ball is an option for any possible future; most connections are discounted immediately (and either stored as a failed option, or no longer of value). As the fractal narrows it's options to relatively few paths (indicating the highest probability for success) the energy increase creates a sphere of astral energy strong enough to have an associated synapse in the brain. These synapses are thought options that enter into the mental workspace to be decided on in real-time.

To answer the initial question:
How do those two particular words, dark and stormy, bring out an exceptional feeling?
Memory is accessed in the fractal-esque pattern also - the connections between astral and physical occur in memory as well (not just future memory). As we narrow our search in the physical realm, the associate astral connections fire into being. In the case of dark and stormy both pathways energize each other because "dark" is only one degree of separation from stormy. Dark has a particular path that engenders ominous memories. Stormy has "dark" as a subset and can also invoke terrifying memories. The combination of energies from the memory of fear, dark, storms, death - could all be energized simultaneously because they are so near each other on those particular pathways.

The pattern of energies is an increasingly strong pathway of sphere after sphere, spheres could go in any direction but only the successful paths remain energized. If a path crosses another path it immediately adds much more energy to the astral memory sphere resulting in the activation of a synaptic spark in the physical.

Creating a phrase like "a jubilant celebration" or when you add "delicious" to the name of your favorite food, it adds emotional value to the communication. Other than word choice, we've learned to use our facial patterns, eye direction/eye contact, voice intonation, body language, cadence, etc to communicate meaning. Because the creation process happens in the astral all thoughts blossom out on all sides of the initial wondering. This explains the ability to instantaneously interconnect all sources at our disposal.

It was a dark and stormy night; the only light sparking in neurons.

It was a dark and stormy night, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.

Oh what fun we'll have!

NeuroScience and Psychology of a Pizza Craving - personal account

Some thoughts on perception of foods, our physical reactions, reactions to memories, our self-created veils, and the anatomy of willpower.

I'm a vegetarian at the moment, and for the last nine months, but haven't always been. I enjoy good pizza now n then and I just saw a TV commercial for Mountain Mike's Pizza (in California, US). It's some really good pizza and I've had quite a few over the years.

I became vegetarian, this time around, when I had an exceptionally expansive spiritual awakening following a Near Death Experience (January 25th, 2014). I felt every soul and looked at our entire interaction of life on Earth. The following day I gave up meat because I truly felt as though I could sense each individual animal (and their thoughts and feelings if I wished to). I recognize this sounds a little "out there" but I will definitely not be eating meat again.

On occasion certain smells, of cooking bacon for example, smell good despite my not wishing to eat meat. I still have the triggers and memories from years of loving bacon.

As I watched the Mountain Mike's Pizza commercial they showed a great looking piece of pepperoni pizza with melted cheese oozing, and my mouth watered! I was surprised so I delved into my feelings, perceptions and memories on the matter.

I saw the pizza with all that oozing cheese and slightly crispy pepperoni and it triggered a memory of eating pizza at the local Mountain Mike's when I was a kid. I remembered the feel then the taste of the cheese, then noticed the pepperoni and remembered the slight crunchiness to it, the smell of the pizza, and then the taste of the pepperoni. I remembered the type of seating and where I sat, followed by the whole scene: wooden benches, friends laughing, music and TV, I felt the emotional state and physical structures of the scene. Once I mentally remembered the taste of the pepperoni it triggered my salivary glands to react and my mouth watered.

I saw the string of attached memories in a fractal-like pattern, with the pizza memories remaining and following a larger, more colorful fractal pattern, and the smaller fractal pattern encompassing the seating, the table, laughing, etc with the physical scene gradually dying out and ceasing to be in active memory.

When I questioned my perceptions I saw a series of four specific, emphasized fractal modules, in order: the cheese (feel, taste, warmth on my tongue, fulfillment), the crunchy pepperoni and my mouth watering (recognition of a memory, feel of crunchiness, taste, warmth), then the veil-like idea that I am a vegetarian as a sheet of color in the path of the fractal thought process, finally, the fractal expansion ceasing after all options were inefficacious. After the thought process passed the self-imposed veil the fractal forms lost color and spherical shape and dissolved into a no-longer-needed thought process; until I asked the question of myself concerning why my mouth watered.

When we can learn to sense our thought patterns and processes we are able to differentiate and assess the various mental happenings individually. A craving is no longer a craving if your willed veil is strong enough to shut the thoughts down before they turn into a desired or undesired action. Our mind will naturally try all options (in the Astral) and deliver the most likely choices to our brain to make the final decision.

You're looking in a donut case and your mind and brain are flooding you with past memories, happiness, sugar high, inexpensive, etc, etc. Some part of you really wants a donut or you wouldn't be standing there in the first place. But maybe you also "don't want" the donut.

To stop your reactive eating due to a craving, you must be able to track your mental behaviors, take notes, think of the reasons you don't want the donut. When your logic and your will decide you don't want donuts anymore you'll find that your will is plenty strong enough to say no.

As a side note: If you're thinking "I don't want a donut because my spouse won't love me as much.". Your brain does not compute - why? because logic and emotions aren't in the same arena.

If you want to stop some behavior track the various possibilities and emotions involved. Recognize that logic and emotions are at opposite places, with the mind being a relay between the two, taking in information from both before sending out a decision. If you put the onus for not eating a donut on your spouse instead of yourself, for example, the most likely result is that you'll feel resentment - resentment for something that didn't even occur. Not eating a donut is your responsibility. Other people may offer support and clarity but the CHOICE and understanding of that choice is yours.

This is an exploration into creating a willful boundary or veil in order to put your choices over your reactions. Act, don't Re-Act. It takes practice and good self understanding.

Human Memory Storage in The Fractal Expansion Model

Memories are stored in several ways - we currently refer to these as sensory, short term, and long term. I believe the standard model needs to include further genres on emotion and somatic paraphysical indications and their role in creating and retrieving memories.

[Reminder that this is a musing and possibly not scientifically accurate. I'm exploring new theories of the mind, individuality, memory, etc and these posts are an exploration of my current understandings and speculations.]

Memories are created in our brain when various triggers occur in our "now state" perception of reality. Everything we experience has an opportunity to be remembered or ignored, after initial sensory input is assessed. The Fractal Expansion Model shows we can put our consciousness on whatever we choose and the evolution of our focus gains power in a fractal pattern, with each thought group developing as a strong fractal spine, with side-thoughts as the smaller fractal arms. In ultra-simple terms: practice makes better.

Our previously-stored memories remind us who we are and what we know. When a new memory is to be stored it is assessed and categorized, it is then compared to our previous memories to find out if this is something new or something reminiscent of another memory. Currently our belief is that we link new memories in a state-dependant fashion with several internal previously-created labels. Our theory is missing emotion however.

We perceive life around us in full emotion, sound, vision, but we have a limited system for categorizing the emotional state in memories. Memories with emotional content are categorized and labeled in ways that typical physical-reality based memories are not. Emotions are sensed by recognizing not only physical cues but also by an associated colorful aura. As sensed by myself, Jerald Bland, M.A., the colorful or golden-white aura is associated with each chakra (front and back) and around the entire person with various concentric levels of aura (alternating static/structural aura and fluid/water-color aura). Each chakra deals with a specific range of emotional frequencies.
[Most humans are imbalanced and blocked and tend to take in or expel energy through neighboring chakras. Much more later on this concerning healthy and appropriate energy flow and balance.]

When comparing how we remember things it seems obvious that emotion is involved; we do the "Remember when" game and swoon over past loves, we compare newly introduced people to ones we have already known. We remember a frequency of emotion and other things in that genre are remembered along with it. The following example, as evidenced by my 6 year old daughter's behavior, shows how we link emotional state to memories. If she gets sad or lonely about something, on occasion she'll give the reason she's sad as that she misses grandpa (who passed on when she was 3). Suddenly a missed playdate, that triggered her loneliness vibration, reminds her of other things that also triggered that same loneliness vibration.

When we remember some past event how does it usually come to mind? through text of the event? no, through a picture or a movie-like event in our mind's eye. If the mind's eye is not developed (as in most people) we might just pick up on a phrase, a laugh, a scent, an emotion, but somehow our mind is capable of linking to an entire scene from the past. If we try we can keep gaining more and more information about that event.

The Fractal Expansion Model exhibits the idea that our soul, or actual dynamic aspect of self, resides in a different vibration of reality: in the Astral realms. The thoughts we have, and all the split-off thoughts from those, reside in the astral realm and the final fractal-point-thought is delivered to the material world where it becomes our reality.
The Astral realms, for this purpose, would be all that happens concerning the 8th Chakra.

Our memory cues are stored in the brain and chakras, but when we put our intention on remembering the memory, the full astral montage comes into our mental workbench. Memory cues are vibrational and emotional in nature, which is why we access them so quickly and hold a specific sense of self. we don't need to remember memories to know who we are, we know who we are by the vibrational input and output of our chakras. Our thoughts and imaginings reside in the astral but the emotional vibrations of the events are stored in the physical, allowing us to feel Individual without remembering every event of our lives.

As a relevant coordinate thought:
Enlightenment is the planned dissolution of all chakra vibrational memories, a balance of perfectly clear in-flow and expulsion of energies. As this happens our lower chakras cease to act unless called upon, and our higher chakras 6 through 10 become the functioning self - utterly compassionate with an ability to find oneself anywhere they look.

The 11th Chakra and those below it

The Eleventh Chakra

(Please forgive the lack of grammar - this felt almost channeled so I just went with it)

Our chakras are the communication from the astral to the physical and vice-versa. Each chakra brings in and expels energy. Each chakra is the mediator for a specific range of emotions, urges, Love, communication, etc. Humans are typically aware of 7 chakras, Root or First Chakra up to the Crown or 7th chakra. The Chakra system goes from Root up to 11th but there are numerous side channels and ways to intermingle with reality other than just chakra flow and balance. The 8th Chakra is Astral, the 9th is, to me, a dismal deep blue featureless realm with connections to other places. I'm not Catholic but this reminds me of what purgatory would be. From there you can traverse to an alternate 9th in charge of the physical make-up of our planet, with adjacent structural chakras progressing downward. The 10th is a blissful realm of green lawns and soul wisp spirit beings in plentiful numbers. I would refer to this as Heaven I suppose; it is also where the Akkashic Hall of Records is and a loved-animal heaven. There is an alternate 10th and 11th that seem to be access to "God" (a large room with open ceiling filled with radiant whitish-gold warm light from above, 10th), and a powerful blissful cloud-like home of a sentient god. I imagine there are many alternate 10ths and 11ths as indicated by our religions. The actual 11th, or what i feel is the actual 11th, is Blissful Perfection of Love and Connection - all beings are subtly aware of individual brighter spots, among the continuous radiance of light, we refer to these as other buddhas. It is a realm of perfect acceptance, perfect love, perfect knowledge. It is pure and exquisite as each Buddha freely flows into all others as a radiant sphere of light that encompasses this planet.

Do nerve signals travel in reverse?

I think I heard once, scientists believed a strange anomaly was happening because no matter how they measured the nerve signals it seemed they originated in the body, not the brain as expected by their current medical belief system.

Here's how I explain that phenomena metaphysically.

The world of imagination works exceptionally quicker than our physical brain and body do. The thought-world works out myriad best-guess scenarios following a fractal design, growing evermore complex but with only a single current-moment-of-reality actually coming to fruition. In other words, our mind lives in the "astral" realm, thinking of millions of possible futures, and one single thought-group creates and controls a physical body here in this world. Our body is created by our thoughts.

The nerve impulse traveling backward is communication from the physical model of our self to the cranial command center, where the current version of "physical now" is recorded, categorized, labeled, and sent back to the astral realm where millions of scenarios are instantly played out, creating the next immediate human action.

I think I may call this the The Fractal Expansion Model. If it's not already taken I reserve the name "The Fractal Expansion Model" and "The Fractal Expansion Model of Metaphysical Reality" as a possible name for the concise theory above. It also explains the concepts of Creativity and Imagination.
