How do you achieve oneness with the universe? Do you believe oneness is even possible, or even exists? If you are like most people, you might be asking why we even need to remotely contemplate why to bother seeking oneness, or even spiritual enlightenment. After all, if you are like most people, all you'll care about is getting stressed out at work, coming home to feed your family and paying the crappy bills at the beginning of every month.
This is how many people operate. Fairly routine, bog standard way of living. As regular as 9 to 5. I don't mean to judge here (and I have my fair share of bills to pay, don't worry;-) but you do have my sympathies. At the risk of proselytizing, but you are majorly missing out in your life. In fact, not only are you missing out in your life, you are in fact making life tough for yourself.
Because you have failed to understand or grasp the concept of what consciousness is, and how it affects you directly. And, when I say directly, I mean everything that word implies. Because if you did even have a remote understanding of consciousness, like most spiritual seekers,you would be involved in meditational practices, trying to achieve oneness with the universe, and achieving your dream goals (well at least most of them, anyway).
But you could ask the question, what has consciousness got to do with oneness with the multi-verse, and you would have every right to ask that question. And here is my answer…consciousness controls the multi-verse. You control consciousness, and you are controlling your version of the multi-verse (or as a certain great teacher says, ‘Bubble Of Reality'). And this is why. Consciousness manipulates the ether (or the etheric plane as some seekers call it) which is the very fabric that every dimension, including the plane of 3D physicality, is built on. So by controlling, or rather manipulating consciousness, you are manipulating the etheric plane, which ultimately means that you will be manipulating your physical environment.
And you do this, routinely everyday (just to make you aware!). You may not know that you are doing it, but you are. Most of you are doing this on an unconscious level. That is, without full conscious awareness of what you are doing.
So you could be asking, what is it that I'm doing everyday unconsciously, which is creating big enough vibes to manipulate my physical reality? And the answer is simple…your feelings.
Feelings are the language of the soul. You may have already heard of that, and some of you might even be curious about what it actually means. But lets back up here, because we're getting slightly ahead of ourselves. First things first, you do have a soul. I know that seems hard to believe, but trust me, you have a soul. All of you do, including the worse among you. And secondly, that soul is pure vibratory particles of light, which created the multi-verse to begin with (i.e. big bang). Light creates. Simple (I believe that is what the bible meant in Genesis, when it said, ‘let there be light' but I could be wrong, and I don't really fancy adding anything religious to this article, for socially acceptable reasons, but you get the idea).
This all means that your soul is your multi-verse, and your EGO is the, ‘little you' in a physical human body (EGO being your identification with your thoughts, which is a projection of your consciousness). And you manipulate your soul by your feelings, which allows the consciousness to manipulate the ether allowing you to create (or-recreate) your bubble of reality.
Now, if you are still with me, and haven’t been put of by now by this article, good! And you know why? Because there is evidence to support this. Even most scientists agree that there is consciousness that is behind everything, and there is also an ether as well (some scientists call it the, ‘zero-point field'. Some of you may argue that, which is fine).
But what some of you may not know, is that your very own feelings actually manipulate the electromagnetic field of physicality, hence why certain things happen when you have feelings for them.
So, hopefully you can now see, that by seeking oneness or spiritual enlightenment, you are essentially seeking more control over your life. This helps life go by more easier, reduces stress and anxiety, and allows you to self-heal many things, as well as attract your goals and dreams towards you quicker than ever before.
I must confess, before I started this spiritual game, I was very cynical myself. I had every reason to be. I was brought up with cynical parents…I had a cynical atmosphere in my job, I had a mildly cynical friend. It got so bad that at one point in my mid-twenties, I was asking what the point of it all was. I mean, was it really to indulge in other peoples power games, just to get a monthly sum of money, pay your bills, get old and die? Was that really what life was about?
It wasn't until one spiritual moment in 2006 did my life started to slowly make sense. But I was still cynical, and didn't believe easily. So I began to find out bits of evidence here, and experience there. Little by little, like a jigsaw, the next 7 years would start to slowly unravel the mysteries of the multi-verse to me. I began to see a common pattern by philosophers…that we are all one, and that love is the underlying engine of it all (and when I say love, I mean the proper version, unconditional love).
I also began to notice how my feelings were creating my reality. I noted that the fantasy’s I had when I just woke up, (when your brainwaves are mostly showing the theta brainwave state) began to manifest very slowly into the physical world. It seemed to me, that you really had to control your feelings and images in your imagination. Quite simple to do during your normal waking day-to-day running of your life, but not so easy first thing in the morning. When I had a negative fantasy (i.e one wrapped in fear, or something I was scared of happening) it would manifest very slowly, usually within 6-9 months. Yet, when my feelings were wrapped in love, and it was a deep, genuine desire (i.e. something I really wanted to have happen, or do) it would manifest within 5 minutes, to up to 3 weeks.
A significant improvement, I thought! So it seemed unconditional love, mixed with the theta brainwave state, would not only de-stress me, and make me a more happier person, but would also manifest my desires almost effortlessly.
Now this wasn't supposed to be an article about the law of attraction, but I just wanted to show you the power of oneness and what it can do. So often, we talk about doing things with your hands and feet, like they are the only ways of creating stuff. We get taught this stuff at such an early age, and this is reinforced throughout going to school and going to work. Yet if I were to tell you that your own imagery in your mind (which is connected, incidentally, to the sea of infinite quantum possibilities) also helps create, how would you then begin to use your imagination more carefully?
So, it does beg the question, that if oneness allows us to do all this magical stuff, and theta allows it to happen fairly quickly, how do we get to theta to begin with?
And the answer is simple…be in the present moment.
Now most of you reading this will understand the benefits of present moment living, or to put it another way, living mindfully. Mindfulness meditation is still one of the most popular ways of meditating (not the only way, of course, but one of the ways). It is said that being mindful helps your brain stabilize itself, helps you emotionally be in control, as well as allowing you to be at, ‘one' with everything (if you do it long enough).
What you may not know, is that being present is a great easy way of getting your brainwave state to the theta waves . Interestingly, people who have out-of-body experiences (where you get to go within the inner dimensions of the multi-verse, and experience first hand a desire manifesting without having to, ‘wait' due to time) also show there brainwave state being in theta as well. I know this because the feeling of being in the, ‘now', and the feeling when you have an out-of-body experience is exactly the same. You mindless inner chit-chatter is reduced and you have to be really careful what you think about, due to the restriction of time being taken away.
Of course, any scientist, philosopher or spiritual seeker will already know this, that there is no such thing as time. That all we have are, ‘now' moments strung together. And this is true. The past and future exist only in your imagination. There is no moment, but, ‘now'. We are right here, right now, in the space-time continuum that some people call the multi-verse.
So, being in the, ‘now' helps creation a lot faster and helps connect you with the, ‘all that is'. Feeling unconditional love helps open up your Heart Chakra (please see this article on, ‘The Chakras' for more info) and allows you to connect to the all that is. Both can do it. And of course, there are ways you can activate both, so you start to live your life with both chakras opened.
To open both chakras is pretty simple enough, and in fact if you open one, the other (sometimes) will open by itself (it's as if the two are linked in some way).
To open your Heart Chakra
The most easiest way of doing this, is to act like everybody and everything else is an extension of you. Just walk around and see other people as parts of you. I know this sounds strange, but believe it or not, this does work. You will find your Heart chakra will open, and feel love pouring into your body. Why? because in truth, they are parts of you. We are all the same consciousness, just different, ‘fingers' of the same hand. And when you experience that, your whole outlook on life begins to change, your, ‘presence' increases (because your Sacral chakra opens in some cases) and you'll eliminate the illusion of separatism. This also has a great knock-on effect of reducing your stress levels, allowing you to be more compassionate and forgiving, and also allows you to manifest a bit more easily (don't forget that thought, mixed with love, immediately creates in the non-physical world. Constant focus will eventually allow that to gain a, ‘3D' shape and manifest into the physical. This is how the law of attraction works;-).
You'll also find that you'll be more emotionally calmer over bad events, and as you can dissolve fear based scenarios by showing love to them, you'll find that bad events, although won't necessarily go away, won't be as bad as you thought they would be.
To open up you Sacral Chakra (be in the, ‘Now')
There are many ways of being in the present moment, and feeling oneness with the multi-verse as a result. The easiest way I have found (thanks to Eckhart Tolle) is by feeling my inner energy body, which helps divert my attention away from my idle EGO created thoughts and allows me to be more, ‘present'. Alternatively, you can watch the gap between your thoughts, or the gaps between the words in your thoughts, to bring you into the present moment of, ‘now'. You'll know when you are close to being present, when a huge flood of peaceful energy floods into your Sacral Chakra (close to your belly button). This helps increase your inner personal power, and also helps you not judge situations, and see them as merely outcomes (which is what they are anyway). This brings more peace to your life, and will automatically re-condition your subconscious. If you practice enough, and close your eyes, you may even be able to remote view, and see distant places/people using just your imagination. (If you are unable to do that, this ARVARI CD package is a great substitute). Being in the, ‘now' is said to be where you meet with your soul halfway, due to there being no such thing as time (I also believe that this is what is mean't by the saying, ‘Be still (now) and know god (unconditional love)').
When I first tried to do this, I already got quite good at being in the present moment, and found that by seeing people as extensions as myself, I felt my Heart Chakra open up, with my Sacral Chakra not too far behind. Life had more richness and energy towards it, and I could feel nature more effectively. Also, my intuition had increased, allowing me to sense things and people differently. Bearing in mind that when you are, ‘present', you are in the theta brainwave state, so your subconscious is also being automatically re-programmed. So if you find yourself in a job or doing a task that you don't like, try to be, ‘present', and you'll re-programme yourself to begin to enjoy it (or at least tolerate it a bit more).
Feeling oneness with the multi-verse, when done long enough, will help your life in numerous ways as well as manifesting your desires a bit quicker as well as promoting self-healing. Acting like you are separate from everybody else is really like living life the hard way. See yourself as one with everything, and you'll find that you'll start to enjoy life more and more. Give it a go. You'll be pleasantly surprised;-)
