The Seven Shamanic Levels of Consciousness

Preface Although formerly only known by shamans, I present this knowledge now to spiritual seekers and for the benefit of mankind.In 1989 I met a Hungarian Shaman, Joska Soos, in Antwerp, Belgium, who helped people with his private "shamanizations" and classes. Over the years I learned a lot, with new information about shamanism I had never read about in any literature. Among it was the system of seven levels of consciousness. Although he did not talk that much about it, it seemed such a useful system to me that I went further into it myself. I began to understand that some of my spiritual experiences in my past corresponded with those levels of consciousness. Table of Contents Introduction 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

The Eight Circuits of Consciousness The four evolving future 'brains' are:V. THE NEUROSOMATIC CIRCUIT When this fifth "body-brain" is activated, flat Euclidean figure-ground configurations explode multi-dimensionally. Gestalts shift, in McLuhan's terms, from linear VISUAL SPACE to all-encompassing SENSORY SPACE. A hedonic turn-on occurs, a rapturous amusement, a detachment from the previously compulsive mechanism of the first four circuits. I turned this circuit on with pot and Tantra. This fifth brain began to appear about 4,000 years ago in the first leisure-class civilizations and has been increasing statistically in recent centuries (even before the Drug Revolution), a fact demonstrated by the hedonic art of India, China, Rome and other affluent societies.

5 Minute Introduction • What is Buddhism? Buddhism is a religion to about 300 million people around the world. The word comes from 'budhi', 'to awaken'. It has its origins about 2,500 years ago when Siddhartha Gotama, known as the Buddha, was himself awakened (enlightened) at the age of 35. • Is Buddhism a Religion? To many, Buddhism goes beyond religion and is more of a philosophy or 'way of life'. Contemporary Shamanism Shamanism is a dance across the unknown, a journey to test the limits of the human heart. Shamanism devolves you, rebuilding you on a different model of what a human can be. Whether good or bad, it is certainly different.

Three Modes of Consciousness Instinct, intellect and intuition are three different aspects of the mind, or three different modes of consciousness at different levels. The mind is the most important vehicle of the self-conscious thinker or the reincarnating Ego, who functions through it. The mind in man is dual, the higher and the lower. The higher mind is the repository of noble ideas and aspirations which lead the soul to its Divine Parent, Atma-Buddhi. The lower mind is entangled in the lower kamic principle, and both together play havoc on the material plane of life.

Theory of Knowledge » Theories of Perception On a straightforward view, we directly perceive the world as it is. The way that things look, feel, smell, taste, and sound is the way that they are. We see colours, for example, because the world is coloured. This view of perception is called, somewhat dismissively, naive realism. Shamanism Shamanism is the root of all world religions and spiritual practices. It is Humanity's shamanic consciousness that fundamentally separates him from animal consciousness. This practice of union with the Divine in order to answer spiritual questions, and gain advice for survival on the material plane is the connection of all moments of inspiration. Ancient tribal cultures relied upon their shamans for healing, the answering of fundamental questions such as where to search for food, which roots and berries were harmful or medicinal, and at a deeper level to answer questions about creation and meaning. It was the shamans who developed stories of Gods and Goddesses and creation myths that still inform our modern cultures.

Are the Deep Programs of Your Conditioned Mind Living Your Life? December 6th, 2016 By Frank M. Wanderer Ph.D. Guest writer for Wake Up World The Ego-dominated mind plays its games in daily life, and creates the characters and scenarios necessary for the games. Theory and History of the Noosphere The Noosphere - literally, “mind-sphere” or Earth’s mental sheathe - is a word and concept jointly coined by Édouard Le Roy, French philosopher and student of Henri Bergson, Jesuit paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, and Russian geochemist, Vladimir Vernadsky, in Paris, 1926. At the root of the primary definition of noosphere is a dual perception: that life on Earth is a unity constituting a whole system known as the biosphere; and that the mind or consciousness of life - the Earth’s thinking layer - constitutes a unity that is discontinuous but coextensive with the entire system of life on Earth, inclusive of its inorganic support systems. A third critical premise arising from the first two is that the noosphere defines the inevitable next stage of terrestrial evolution, which will subsume and transform the biosphere. How this evolutionary shift might occur is at the crux of the experiment, Noosphere II. 1.

CT Shamanic Healing Journeys: Shamanism, Ritual, Ceremony One of the things that sets shamanism apart from other forms of spiritual practice is the shamanic journey. Think of a journey as a kind of active meditation, a means of traveling deep within to garner the counseling, insights and perspectives of a world without judgment or negativity. Typically, journeys are accompanied by a drum or rattle-- said to represent the heartbeat of mother earth--which shifts the brain waves from alpha to theta and produces a mild trance state. Shamans (or those who journey) are said to send their souls into the spirit world (also called the Otherworld and non-ordinary reality). They do so with the intention of bringing back healing or insight from the spirits.
