5 Steps to Transform Your Consciousness

To solve a problem we must access a higher state of consciousness or awareness than the state we are in right now or wherein when the problem was created.

Our current consciousness is our thoughts + energy + beliefs + experiences, which provides the illusion that “this is the way it is and the way it has to be.” This is false. Our current reality doesn’t have to be our permanent reality if we don’t want it to be. To transform into a new state of consciousness we must come to accept that the old one is not working anymore. Once we accept that we desire a new experience we must identify the qualities we wish to embody, feel, see and call our new experience for life. The simpler, more direct and clear we are when making this claim, the better and easier it is to embody it.

Breathe those qualities of being into yourself again and again until the feeling becomes natural. The reason the breath is so important in transforming your consciousness is because breath = presence and presence = power. We must powerfully claim this new state of being, evicting the old ways of being out of our mind and habits. If you want to change, then you can no longer accept those old thoughts, actions and beliefs that might surface as the truth. Kick their asses to the curb, come back to your breath and embody your new state of being.

To live it is to breathe it, to be it and only to accept it as the way, just like you may have accepted lack, scarcity, struggle or depression as “the way” up until this point. Embodiment is a practice that you can come back to every moment of everyday with the question, who am I being right now?

Oh ya! One more important thing I need to mention: Have some fricken’ fun with this. Be like a child and transform yourself into the joyful, exuberant, curious, loving, accepting wonder being that you are!

Here is a Practice to Support you in 5 Steps:

1. Admit your current state of consciousness isn’t working. Write down the proof of why and how it’s not working. Short Example: Living in lack is no longer working because it’s keeping me small, stuck and unable to fulfill my highest potential.

2. Claim the new state of being you’re choosing to embody. Describe all the details of how it makes you feel and what your new experience of life is from the state of embodiment. Short Example: I embody true wealth and abundance and through sharing my creative brilliance people love to give me money and bless my life back.

**3. **Breathe the new state{ment} of being into existence. Practice the embodiment meditation below everyday.

**4. **Accept nothing less than what you want for your life.

**5. **Keep coming back to your breath.



Animals and Universal Consciousness

More often than I like to admit, I’m forced to realize that some people are simply a lot smarter than I am – doggone it. At other times, I catch myself in one of those moments of spontaneous prideful arrogance, thinking how much smarter I am than somebody else.

It’s easy for me to see that there are lots of people smarter than I am, and maybe a few who aren’t. I think, therefore I think I know what intelligence is – but that intelligence has let me down many times in the past, as it has for even “the greatest minds of their times” – former members of The Flat Earth Society and all.

For much of my life I thought that, at least, I was smarter than an animal – an assumption taken for granted in our modern, technological culture. Now, I think that assumption was wrong. I think animals are smarter than all of us, and it all has to do with the arrogant, typically human way I think about what intelligence is.

My intelligence seems to be a function of how well my senses and capabilities work, especially in terms of feeling “successful” about my life; but what if I could hear, see, or smell, thousands of times better than I can? What kind of world would I perceive, and how much more would I know about it? What if I didn’t have to worry about wearing clothes (believe me, I do), or whether I had a roof over my head? What if the supermarket were closed, or I was dropped in the middle of the ocean or the woods – could I feed myself, or would I end up becoming somebody’s dinner? Suddenly, I don’t sound much like ‘the top of the food chain.’

Profound Consciousness in Animals

One of the most difficult barriers for people to break is the one that prevents us from perceiving the profound levels of consciousness alive in our animal relatives. This kind of prison of the human ego that demands we place ourselves above all other creatures is possibly the most soul-depleting (and destructive) obstacle to human spiritual evolution there is, forcing us to live life through the limited filter of human sensory experience, generally misinterpreted by our collective and personal ego, and the delusions of “intellect.” As a result, we tend to destroy our home and hurt those from whom we could learn the most.
