Our wolrdview, and the Wisdom of the Subconscious

It is not something you normally think of, but Science has came about because of human’s wonder and awe of nature. You can almost imagine one of our ancestors on a sea shore (or mountain ridge) watching transfixed the sun setting over the horizon and thinking ‘I want to know, to understand, to become a creator in this magnificent spectacle’.
Of course there will be those who say that it came out of the need to survive. Nothing could be further from truth. The scientists of even not so long ago, in the 18th and 19th century were calling themselves ‘natural philosophers’ and usually they were affluent enough not to have to work for a living. This gave them plenty of time to study nature and do what we now call ‘science’. The term scientist was used to designate a working class person and it was for those doing the lab assistant job.

Fast forward to the modern day… and the scientists are still here. But the natural philosophers (or “men and women of science” as they also called themselves)  seem to have become an endangered species. This may be because the financial and industrial interests who later started dictating what will be researched or not, have not been interested in the bigger picture and the good of all, but just their own. As such they only needed executors. Intelligence, but not wisdom.

A similar process has happened with the value system of our society, our education, and ultimately with ourselves. We became smarter, but not wiser. Wisdom, imagination, true creativity (as opposed to ‘commercial creativity’) has been relegated to the subconscious, taking a far second place to using our wit for the pursue of material wealth.
And where has this led us to? A world in crisis, a social system in agony, continuously trying to fix what can’t be fixed anymore.

The solution is simple. Let go of the old. Try to see the truth, the bigger picture.
The wisdom is there, in everyone of us, even though we forgot how to get in touch with it.

Going into the subconscious to reclaim our truth and our solutions for the future – can be difficult, but it is possible. All that is needed is honest intention, and being open to receive.

There are also many tools that can facilitate this process. Traditional tools like Mindfulness Meditation and Yoga, martial arts like Tai-Chi and Aikido, and others.
The tools we create at Technosophics use computer/mobile technology for this purpose, and do not require any difficult practice or special environment. They are for everyday people leading everyday lives.

  • DREAM-e works by supporting you to expand your awareness using the messages you receive in your dreams from your subconscious.
  • JOURN-e creates scenarios that facilitate a dialogue with your subconscious while awake.
  • SOUL-e works with everything that happens to you in your everyday life, like a wise mentor or guide, by tapping into the wisdom of your subconscious.

Listening to your body and small voices

I was on my way home from a late night dinner with my friends while I was in Japan back in March. The train hit someone at a platform, and we were trapped in the train for about 40min until they sorted out the accident, the police arrived, etc.
It was hot and muggy inside the train and I was getting thirsty. I was also really regretting that I hadn’t hear ‘the little voice’ in me earlier that day. Before I left my work place to go to the dinner, I was pouring some water into my small water bottle. I only filled it half way, not wanting to carry a heavy bottle, thinking ‘I’ll be able to get some water at the restaurant, then I’ll be well on my way home .’

At that moment, a rather clear voice came into my ear, or so it felt like; ‘you might have an unexpected situation. Fill up the bottle!.’

The voice I heard was what is called ‘intuition’. These voices are trying to reach us all the time, but it gets muffled by the voice of the mind / reason (like it happened to me), or negative emotions such as fear. I knew about the importance of listening to such voices, but this little incident was a sign that I should be more serious about it.

Your body also holds wisdom and information that your mind cannot capture. For example, if you are not sure about a project, a place, or a person, try closing your eyes, make your mind blank for a moment, and pretend that your body is a pendulum. Notice the slightest tendency of your body. If it moves forward, it’s a Go. If it moves backwards as if retreating, it’s a No. You might also feel expansive or warm in your body if something is good for you, and when your body contracts or you feel a bit sick, you will know that it’s not good for you. Of course it’s up to you to also value your mind’s opinion and negotiate between the two.

Listening to the body in the end allowed me to come home safely after they finally let us out of the train — I had to make a couple of more choices rather quickly, as I missed the last train on my normal route.

What I experienced is not such a big thing compared to difficult situations people are experiencing nowadays. It’s as if we are constantly in the unknown and we cannot rely on the knowledge from the past so much anymore. In a way, the urban life has become like a life in a jungle. I’d say it’s worth it to start bringing awareness to our intuition and reviving and sharpening our ‘animal instinct’

Entering a new phase

It is said that a big astrological event happened on Feb 4th this year, i.e. Neptune entered into Pisces.  I don’t know much about astrology unfortunately, but my understanding is that for the next 14 years, themes such as spirituality, dreams, healing of soul, art, religious feeling, etc. will be coming more and more to the foreground in our awareness.
Many of you may have already noticed this tendency in the past few years. My feeling is that we will see an increasing number of business organizations, individuals and groups that feature all kinds of ‘spiritual stuff’ of both good and poor qualities so that each of us need much discernment in order to sift through them.

One of my teachers, whom I regard as practicing ‘well-grounded spirituality’ said the other day something that left me with an impression. According to him, we are in a phase where we have to wrestle with all the seemingly negative things in ourselves, tasks we haven’t completed, emotions, our shadow parts, etc.; that going through such process may feel heavy and make us feel as though we’ve gone backwards on our spiritual paths. However, actually, working on such things as well as dealing with everyday tasks such as cleaning and cooking, ARE in fact spiritual. The last part actually reminded me of zen teaching that includes everyday chores as integral parts of its spiritual practice.

Speaking of shadow parts, for the past week, so many people around me have been telling me about nightmares and nightmarish experiences they’d had (actually almost on the same day) and wanted to know what they might mean. For almost all of them, one of the background messages of such dreams and experiences seemed to be ‘to get in touch with the power behind what they regard as something negative and scary, and to use it wisely.’ As we enter this new phase, you may find the messages and information that we need for our personal and spiritual growth are knocking on our doors louder than ever before through dreams, synchronicities and daily encounters. We are often afraid of what may be standing behind the door, but you may be in for a pleasant surprise when you actually open it.

There’s more to you than your personality

In my opinion, who you are is not your personality, or what you think about yourself.
In order to know who you are you have to expand your current identity to integrate your subconscious or unconscious potential, those parts of you that you may not be very aware of.
At Technosophics we focus on this ‘digging’ into the subconscious in creative ways, to bring up and integrate these disowned parts of ourselves. Then, by giving them  a voice and a role in our lives, we can achieve a more authentic, more rich existence.

Bringing in some new energy for the new year

The year 2012 is finally here! The year that has been talked about so much because of the significance the ancient Mayan calendar
places on this period. Whatever the truth, personally it does feel like we are at the end of a cycle and it’s a chaotic phase before the new era takes a clear shape. Rather than feeling doomed about it, I feel it’s an exciting time when people and the world are becoming more and more open to new ways and visions.

In my last post, I wrote about the end-of-the-year cleaning inside and out, about letting go of the unwanted from our body, mind and our environment. This I’m sure is a process, rather than a one-time thing.

In the health-conscious circles, cleansing and detoxing seem to be in fashion. Although I think it’s important to fast and detox once in a while when we are too clogged up, it would be also senseless to be attached to cleansing or to not to participate in the not-so-clean world for fear of tainting your purity. I think the important thing is the ‘cycle’ of bringing in new energy, letting go of the old, and taking a good rest. For example, some people are addicted to colon irrigation, thinking they are cleansing. Instead, some of them are losing vital energy. In other words, they actually need adding instead of subtracting.

I say new energy, but it has always been with you, just hasn’t been accessible to your waking consciousness. One of the ways to access it is through the nighttime dreams. The new year’s dreams – dreams that you have around the new year and leaves you with impressions, are said to indicate your basic direction or energy for the whole year. If you remember your new year’s dream, here is one way to receive its message;

1) Close your eyes and remember the dream again, then pick one element of your dream that stands out, that feels rather mysterious, impressive, scary, or attractive.
It can be a character, action, incident, colour or atmosphere.

2) What is the ‘essence / basic energy’ of the element? If it’s a character, action or incident, express its energy with your hand, if it’s an image or a colour, try drawing a picture, to get to know the energy better.

Keep on extracting its essential quality until it doesn’t have negative judgment. (example; a monster chasing you –> power;
moving into a new house –> moving to a new phase in life; colour orange –> (for example) joy; a trip to Hawaii –> relaxation)

3) That’s the new energy that is available for you for the year 2012. Think how you would like to manifest or use it? As a reminder, try using the picture that’s similar to the dream image on the wall paper of your mobile (cell phone), or wear something with the same colour as the dream element.

May your year 2012 be full of joy and fulfillment!

End of the year cleaning, inside and out

The end of the year is a season for a big house cleaning in Japan. Here, many people are starting to move toward the minimalist lifestyle. Things accumulate before we know it. Whether it’s physical objects, thoughts, life styles or behavioural patterns, it seems very important to consciously and constantly let go of what do not work for us in order to bring in new energy.

* Cleansing of our body;
Many of you may already know that cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough and fever are not necessarily bad in themselves but are the signs that your body is detoxing. I myself had a cold until 2 weeks ago and after I let it complete it with plenty of rest, liquid, and vegetable/fruit rich diet, my skin felt smoother and my body felt lighter.
It’s also the season of holiday feast. If you feel heavy and without appetite after the feast, try a half-day to a full day of apple cleanse, and you’ll be good to go

* Cleaning of our environment
Your living space is a part of you, like your skin. Are there anything that’s starting to feel heavy or old in your house? Maybe it’s time to throw away or change some things you have in your environment. 10 years ago, I was only wearing dark coloured clothes like black and brown. It was starting to feel heavy at one point, but I was too lazy to change it. You know what happened? On the way back from the U.S. to Japan one time, they lost my suitcase with most of my dark-coloured clothes in it, never to be found again, forcing me to change my entire wardrobe!  Of course I switched to more colourful clothes but this experience taught me to change things more consciously so that I don’t have to go through it in the hard way.

* Cleaning of our mind
I learned recently that fluid in our body carries emotional flow and memories, and we are letting them go when we sweat and cry, for example. It makes sense as we all know we feel better after we shed tears or exercise. I also learned that even good memories, if we hang on to it, makes our body and heart heavy and will lead us to depression. I suppose it means that we are not living in the here and now when we are nostalgic. My husband tells me that when he had a temporary amnesia after a concussion, his heart was feeling so light and free that he was cracking jokes for two days    Not hanging on to memories is a very powerful thing, I guess.
I was given a homework from my homeopathy teacher to let go of all the memories of the day and ‘die’ each night before I go to sleep. You can do this as emptying your head gradually as you breathe out.

… Thanks for reading the blog posts by Technosophics this year. I wish you all a wonderful year 2012!!
