This question is marked "community wiki".

Following was inspired by True or false: "Thinking is the only activity which the spirit possesses" - Charles F Haanel? it shall serve, both, as a reply and a topic to collaborate on. I should start with saying that I disagree with the statement above, that thinking is the only activity which spirit possesses, and here is why...

Mind and heart synchronicity

I think, therefore I am not. Only when the mind is silent, I am. - BTS.

It has been proven that heart has its own consciousness.

Far more than a simple pump, as was once believed, the heart is now recognized by scientists as a highly complex system with its own functional “brain.”

And not only that,

Compared to the electromagnetic field produced by the brain, the electrical component of the heart’s field is about 60 times greater in amplitude, and permeates every cell in the body. The magnetic component is approximately 5000 times stronger than the brain’s magnetic field and can be detected several feet away from the body with sensitive magnetometers. ~

Now just think,.. could that be the missing piece in attempts of many failing manifestations? People learn about power of mind and power of thought. But without mixing that thought with an emotion, it is just an empty thought.

And could it be that the subconsciousness as we know it, is in fact consciousness of Heart? Since heart is so much more powerful than brain, thoughts alone are not able to reach it. A thought is merely an application for a job, but Heart chooses only the one that's special (mixed with emotion) to it.

Quoting the text above once more

the electrical component of the heart’s field is about 60 times greater in amplitude, and permeates every cell in the body.

When you mix a thought with emotion of fear or love or other, you can get instant shivers or goose bumps as it gets to your heart, which then resonates this throughout your entire body outward piercing through every cell of your body.

Electromagnetic fields are always vibrating; they always spread out into space indefinitely.

So to control your vibrational level cannot be done solely with your thoughts. Because brain alone doesn't have the ability to create such strong vibrations. You perhaps heard at least once in your life, and if not here it is...

If your heart ain't in it, take yourself out of it

When one meditates (the mind takes conscious effort to shut itself down) you silent your mind and you can feel the universe with your heart. We think with mind, we feel with heart. Mind and heart work together in synchronicity.

So when you think a positive thought, brain creates a small electromagnetic vibration of positive nature. Upon mixing with emotion of love (in this case), it gets picked up by heart, which then magnify this vibration proportionally. And since it permeates your whole body and your cells are "charged" with this electromagnetic vibration, you then take what we call "Inspire action". That, as we know, is almost effortless.

A little bit on accessing Higher self

As long as you're using your mind, you will create vibrations of duality. Either negative or positive. When you silent your mind, you'll become neutral.

Also, I think when people say they go to their higher self for guidance, they miss the whole point of going there. They use judgmental request for help or assistance in life which only mind can create, and use their heart to magnify this request. So in response to that the universe will always answer whatever question you ask.

In other words, if you ask for help with a wrongly formulated request, the universe (neutrally, without any intentions to make your situation improve or worsen) will answer it. But the answer is appropriate to the question asked. However this never really 'help' to resolve one's troubles.

And as long as people are going to be asking for direction, help, assistance, they will **STAY ATTACHED TO THE VIBRATIONS OF THE SITUATION THEY ARE ASKING HELP FOR, because the answer will be of the vibrations appropriate to the question asked.

The point I believe people miss when accessing their higher self, is not to ask for help. It is to get in touch with it in neutral state. And from the state of neutrality see their life, the world, the universe. They will learn a powerful lesson of being unaffected, non-attached. And as they see things from this point of view, the "problems", "struggles" or "addictions" both positive or negative will lose their grasp on people's soul. One's soul will no longer be prisoner, it will be free. And whatever endeavor one decides to take on from that moment on, he will have a truly free choice. Not a choice conditioned by strings and attachments which are NOT KNOWN, and thus cannot be avoided or stopped from influencing one's decision.

What this neutral point of view does is you are then able make a choice and not get attached to it. You can walk away from it any moment and never look back. It will be impossible for any FEAR to hold you prisoner to it. Because in state of neutrality, there's no fear neither is there love. Choose to love someone and they give you bad vibe? No problem, because you are free soul now. Just walk away, find someone who vibrates with you equally or as you'd like them to vibrate. No heart broken, nor rivers of tears, no feelings hurt.

When you learn to see life neutrally, you stop being dependent on attachments. You will free yourself and can be happy, if you choose to, forever without anything ever influencing you in the less than positive way.

Edit Additionally, I'd like to add this to the universe answering your requests. The universe is like a mirror, standing in front of it is like asking a question. And the universe (mirror) will reflect back the answer. This would also confirm saying that the answer to any question is within the question asked just seen from a different perspective.

"Look at your question and you will see the answer"

When I said the universe does not have any intentions, it is exactly like a mirror. It has no intentions either, it just reflects back. Intentions of help are embodied in your questions. Those are your intentions of help, and the universe just mirrors back you an answer. You may see the intentions within the answer. But it would be misleading to think, that mirror put that intentions in it. That the mirror is not biased. It doesn't want, nor desire.

This may further lead to understanding why creation, or all there is, or the source...take so many forms. Because it cannot create various wants and desires that we create through our perceptions of all there is on its own. But creation has no ability to judge its own creations, so it can only reflect back neutrally. Further experiencing endless number of situations.

Because oneness cannot see itself through duality. And although it may see its dual parts, it will still perceive them as one.

I'll stop here, because I can see the snow ball is rolling and getting bigger than I initially intended.

@Calon Lan This is actually getting a bit spooky because for the past couple of days I've been running through a question about heart centredness and how to get there - everywhere I turn I see references to being heart rather than mind centred. I think my higher self or whatever is definitely trying to tell me something. Thanks for your insights - they always have me thinking.

(28 Aug '12, 04:49) Catherine

@Catherine, if you think of it. Body is just a tool through which soul (higher self) is able to gain experience in physical world. Body, a harvester of experience. Any experience. And our egos, created by our perception of reality, keep us always going, always desiring and wanting. Through ego, we're searching the balance between them. The oneness of higher self. That keeps us evolving and experiencing ups and downs. And the moment we understand the oneness, constant ups or downs, depending on..

(28 Aug '12, 05:23) CalonLan

...our choice is available for experience. But whatever we choose, our body will keep on serving its purpose. "Harvesting" experience of this physical world.

I have to say, I'm feeling overwhelming sensation of peace typing this. It's impossible to understand struggles and problems of others from this place. Because any struggle is created in duality, in one side of it. But once you see the whole picture, the oneness, problems disappear. There are no issues, fears or worries here. I wish...

(28 Aug '12, 05:27) CalonLan

...everyone comes here chill with me and feel that sensation of peace for themselves. ;-)

Because here, you are just left looking around at the world and smiling at everything. This is heavy. It is like spiritual orgasm. lol

your higher self is you with out the dark prison of the flesh,that darkness is the poison to the soul(mind and heart),and to the spirit (higher self). if you are born of water and spirit then yes your higher self share the same point of view,because it is you with out the prison of darkness.

Jesus replied, "My light will shine for you just a little longer. Walk in the light while you can, so the darkness will not overtake you.

"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

split that pieces of wood and lift that stone and you will find me there.

for jesus it was 40 days meditating in the desert how long will it be for you?

Some very clear and good points in here Calon, good stuff!

I'd just like to add to, whoever may be reading this, about our universe and the metaphor given of a mirror.

Spot on...But, you'll be surprised to know that the Universe is actually slightly more positive than negative. The polarity is not 50/50, but more like 49/51. It does not seem like such a difference, but it goes to show that everything in creation is pure and designed to experience love/ positivity (paraphrasing from Bashar).

Also, when you attempt to manifest something, the universe is actually doing everything it absolutly can to give you what you want. In fact, one may even say it's cheating the mainstream law of attraction style format but pushing the boundaries into doing anything you allow to experience, to experience.

Believe it or not, we allow what we choose to. Sometimes, however, it's just very sneakily designed beliefs which we believe are serving us alot better than we think, at a deeper level.

The universe wants you to feel good. It wants you to get what you (think you) want. Truthfully :)

@Nikulas, yes I remember Bashar saying that universe is slighting tilted towards positivity. You couldn't see it from my post, because it's not there, but I wanted to write also about desire of the universe, but decided to omit that part for reason not to make it much more complicated.

The thing is, I believe, the universe has at least one desire, either to create or experience or evolve. I don't know which, or if it has them all, because they all fit into "what's going on" with all there is..

(28 Aug '12, 06:35) CalonLan

...and because I couldn't see that part of the "story" I decided not to talk about it, because it is hazy and not clear to me. What I have written is what I saw clearly enough to state it with confidence. The thing is, even if the mirror is 51/49... it's the want/desire of the mirror. It can only influence you IF you can get in touch with the mirror. And actually the peace I feel when being in neutral point of view is nice feeling. So that might confirm 51/49 ratio. Where neutrality is slight...

(28 Aug '12, 06:38) CalonLan

...positivity. Actually that "peace" I'm talking about, the feeling is more like being lighter, as if you were carrying heavy stones in your backpack and when you go to state of neutrality, you drop the backpack and become light as air.

And from this state of being, it sure can reach to and influence your perception of the world of duality (or perception of physical reality in other words) so that even your "judgmental" perception is tilted a little bit towards positivity. Perhaps it's 51/49...

(28 Aug '12, 06:42) CalonLan

...because the first desire of neutral state of being, the void was positive. So everything that ever happens in the universe has in fact positive intentions of the universe underlying it.

The fact that we see some things in negative way, just our own screwed perceptions.

And perhaps, the image in the mirror is really slightly better looking than we THINK it is. :)

(28 Aug '12, 06:45) CalonLan

So in the end we may find it is our own mind that is so often standing in our way. And I think it is. Since fears and worries and doubts are just thoughts. Assumptions we operate with, if we were living from the heart, we would live from the source point of view. That is 51/49, slightly positive.

Our minds, are our own demise.Now I can see it much clearer,perhaps I should edit my original post to include this, or leave it here, for others to have a glimp of evolution that just happened.

(28 Aug '12, 07:00) CalonLan

@Nikulas, one more thing I just realized, we do run away from pain towards the pleasure. It is our motivator for anything, embodied in us from birth. So then we must have inherited this 51/49 positivity ratio from the source. It then seems to be fundamental nature of the source, thus everything. Like a compass guiding our way through physical world experience, leading us home.

So this 51/49, or in other words the Kingdom of God as biblical folks say, is within us. All of us. Wow. lol ;)

(28 Aug '12, 07:57) CalonLan

@Calon- Hi-five, I totalled agree with you. You've evolved a ton within the last 2 months dude :) Sure you're not having a Higher Mind moment here tonight :P
