Please read this! Why?
Because you are waking up and I want to try to help you go through this process with as little struggle as possible. We are stepping into a truly different mode of being. When you transition into this, you will find in your experience enormous abundance, joy, health, energy, love, and power.
To walk from the mode in which most people live into this new mode of consciousness, I believe, is the next stage of the evolution of human consciousness.
The problem is that it is so hard to describe this modality with words. It is NOT a new understanding, it is a new perspective. And when you enter into a new perspective, everything changes. So unless you are reading these words from that new perspective, they may seem empty or abstract.
Stick with it and just keep practicing, you will eventually fall into it. And one day you will email me and tell me “Noam, it makes sense...I get it.” I await that day. It is my commitment to you to give you as many resources as I can to aid in your awakening, until you no longer need me. Then it will be your turn to help others wake up.
There Are Two “Modes” Of Being
Before you read this, I want you to take three conscious breaths and just bring your awareness into your body. Notice the energy in your body. Do not think about it. Just feel it. When you feel a little bit of calmness return to you, keep reading.
There are primarily two different ways of experiencing reality. There are many different ways to describe this, but I have chosen these two phrases:
- There is living through Mind Energy
- There is living through Heart Energy
Firstly, please realize that Heart Energy does not equal “emotions” and Mind Energy does not equal “thought.” It is deeper than that, because you still have emotions in Mind Energy and you still have thought in Heart Energy. But, as you will come to understand, they are two entirely different modalities of being.
I believe that the capacity to maintain Heart Energy in our lives is the stage of “enlightenment” many wisdoms reference. The Universe is trying to wake us up into this new mode of being. The problem is that we often resist. Hard.
Why do we resist?
Because we have a parasite inside of us. We can call this parasite our mind or our ego. This parasite (our mind) only cares about its own survival and not about its host (yours and my body/soul). The mind’s entire way of being is one of negativity, problems, lack, judgement, stress, and disconnect. If left unchecked, the mind kills its host…or rather, it forces the host to kill itself. Even if we don’t kill ourselves, the mind can make it so bad that we will poison ourselves with cigarettes, alcohol, toxic relationships, and self-destructive habits simply to numb the pain.
Yeah…it gets dark in there when the mind is in control.
When an organism is under the control of the mind/ego, I call that Mind Energy.
Why is it so painful to be trapped in Mind Energy?
Because the mind is entirely disconnected from the Now (I.e. God, Source, the Universe). The mind exists as a delusion, in the future and in the past. But what we actually NEED is connection to life. In the mind, there is no connection to life. It lacks connection to the fundamental energy of the universe. The longer the mind is in charge, the more desperate the organism becomes. It exists in perpetual lack.
The mind can only see problems. It can only see not-enough. It can only see lack. It struggles day in and day out in order to try to find satisfaction, but it remains impossible for the mind to actually find what it is looking for. Because the mind is the problem. It is like putting on red-tinted glasses and then spending your whole life trying to find green.
This is called suffering. The longer we stay trapped in this delusion, the more painful it becomes.
- The energy of existence that wants to flow through us simply cannot, because our minds keep stopping it.
- The Universe, which is trying to wake us up, cannot, because we do not allow it.
What is the alternative?
Living through heart energy is when we are connected to the Now. The energy literally unlocks and begins to flow through you. This happens because you are no longer “thinking” about it or “judging it” which is how the mind blocks it. You are letting it happen. When the energy has been allowed to move uninhibited for long enough, you open and you begin to feel unbelievable. You feel satisfied. You feel alive. You feel inspired. You feel connected. You live in love with life. The energy sings in your body as you allow it to move through you.
When the heart is in control, there is no more resistance within us. There is profound and deep surrender. The energy moving inside of us is so pleasurable and so alive that all of existence outside pales in comparison to the internal experience. Disease and sickness slow or halt entirely. Drama ends. Struggle and suffering end. A great love fills us and a profound freedom enlightens us. Pain can still be there, but we are no longer fighting it. Suffering only exists in the mind.
It does not mean that through heart energy we do not act or create. We simply stop creating from a place of lack. We realize that what we ACTUALLY like about the process of creation is the FEELING of the energy moving into us and through us. It is intoxicating. So we create, not because we have to get somewhere, but because it is so AMAZING AND ENJOYABLE to create. If you have read any of my content on manifestation, then you will understand that this is what we call surrendered action and because it no longer has resistance as part of its vibration, it is so much more effective in its capacity to create. It simply is the power of manifestation.
But Noam…don’t I need my mind?
The answer is yes. But what many people misunderstand is that the mind does not go away when we live in heart-energy, it is transformed. You see, when you are living controlled by your mind, you still have heart, but everything is poisoned by the modality of judgement and lack. Everything the mind/ego does is about itself. You can even be a very great meditator but it can still be done through the mind. You are meditating because you want to be seen as a good meditator, you are meditating because you don’t like what you are experiencing now, you are meditating because you want to be someone someday. The only true reason to meditate is because you enjoy doing it. If you aren’t right there, let the motivation to meditate to practice letting go entirely of your mind.
So too in heart energy, the mind is still there. You can still think. But it is not done with any resistance to what is. You can even notice lack in your physical form – hunger, lack of a relationship, lack of money – but you aren’t experiencing the lack at the core of your being (because that would mean that you had fallen back into mind-energy). So you can take action to remedy the lack, but there is no more fear over what the outcome will be. Because you are in an intense state of connection.
So what do we do?
The answer is simple but not easy. Only with practice will you begin to understand this modality. This process of waking up is not something we “do,” because as long as we are trying to get there, we are in mind-energy (do you understand?). It is something we ALLOW. We allow it by surrendering deeply to whatever is (inside or outside). Practice surrendering. Practice surrendering.
- Meditate for 15 minutes in the morning and simply practice stopping thought. You can use a mantra like: “No thought, no thought, no thought.” You will begin to experience gaps in your mind. Then you will begin to observe the tricky forms your mind can take. To wake up, you must feel the content of your mind instead of thinking about your thoughts. You will feel whether the thought is tinged with negativity and judgement (mind energy) or tinged with love and acceptance (heart energy). If it’s the former, relax and release. Relax and release.
- Awareness is the only way forward. You will begin to understand how to notice when the parasite begins to take over again. You will feel struggle or negativity or stress. In that moment, you must relax and release immediately. Sit in meditation. Shake your head back and forth. Do whatever you must do to stop that momentum shift.
- If you find yourself in darkness, the only thing to do is to let go in that moment. “You” have to be ok with what is happening. Even if there is tremendous pain in your body, you must accept it. To do anything to try to make it go away is to be trapped again in mind energy (because the mind is the thing that has a problem with what is happening). When you find the surrender in that pain, the suffering will go away and the pain will be transformed.
There is so much more to talk about. I wish I could reach into you and flip this switch of experiential understanding. I promise you, that if you want it, it will come. It will come. It will come. In the meantime, I am over here practicing taking back control of myself from this parasite. I am here to help.
