Are We or Aren’t We Doomed? Becoming a Quantum Pioneer

Quantum pioneer homeostasis movementHave you checked-in with your beliefs lately? As you experienced life, many beliefs you had once-upon-a-time have evolved, mostly in response to cultural conditioning and major life events. And, if you were to observe all of your recent thoughts and behaviors, you would discover that old subconscious programming wired by old beliefs that no longer serve you is auto-running the show, sabotaging new intentions no matter how honorable.

Even among those who embrace the concepts of quantum theory, spiritual concepts of interconnectedness and infinity, and the newest findings in neuroscience: the habit of ruminating what is or could go wrong, while dismissing prevalent evidence of what is going well and positive potential is strongly wired. “I believe in this, BUT”…

Wishing or knowing isn’t enough.  As someone who has partially “crossed the river of change”— still experiencing shreds of her old self pridefully protesting with all her might, yet truly enjoying increased wellbeing and understanding within— I would like to share some things I am learning.

From the most progressive scientific, philosophical, and spiritual beliefs about reality (which are rapidly merging) it is suggested that where we place our attention is what we create or perpetuate. For better or worse, our energy is spent through our intention and attention, energizing the recipient of that attention. Observers collapse waves into particles, creating incarnate reality. Whether something already incarnated is being reincarnated every moment with continued observation, or a new potential resonating in the infinite field of possibility is being attracted and collapsed: we are, consciously and unconsciously, creating our current life experience… and therefore, our future.

If quantum theory is valid, then endless possibility exists. And from that possibility we get to consciously choose to experience a positive future, even a positive now. This requires mustering the courage to become a quantum pioneer and spelunk into the unknown, starting with our own neurobiology and therefore personal experience. Breaking the habit of allowing negative stimulus to be what motivates us, and instead inviting positive evidence and potential to inspire us, takes that pioneering spirit. At this time in history, I feel this the most powerful way to serve the greater good.

Would you rather be coerced, or inspired?

Many of us punish ourselves directly by conjuring and feeding worse-case-scenarios in our imagination, reliving misfortunes long past, and consuming media which endorses this behavior. The resulting emotions bathe our biology in stress hormones over and over again. Even when there is evidence abound that there is so much good transpiring, that doesn’t stop the habit since we are now chemically primed to find fault. The good is blocked from perception in this state of being. Life becomes a burdensome experience when our nervous system is fried and our body’s resources are depleted, leaving us less able to handle even small challenges. And yet, our amazing bodyminds can still survive this for days, weeks, even years. Imagine what we could do otherwise!

And if you haven’t noticed, trying to scare people into making different choices is less and less effective. From the old cause-and-effect mentality, we try to stamp-out what is deemed negative. Like movies/television/literature obsessively portray: from a disempowered state of being, we calculate the wrongness of other’s choices and rehearse infallible arguments which will magically induce the adoption of our viewpoint. When that doesn’t work, some become more determined to figure out how to expose, and eventually punish others. Yet the more resistance is applied (which is attention and energy) the more empowered the subject of that resistance becomes. Instead, we can direct our attention toward what will replace past ways of thinking, feeling and doing… empowering better choices and experiences. Having a quantum-based perspective takes us from cause-and-effect (victim) to causing an effect (creator).

In the big picture, it’s projected that major shifts in collective consciousness take only a relative handful of souls. Not everyone, not even a majority: less than 10% of the population. We don’t have to worry about convincing everybody to believe or behave a certain way. As we practice inner transformation and positive outlook, we attract others teetering on the threshold, and more inspired co-creators become available. I’m inspired to write this and send it out into the world, not to convince skeptics, but to share with those who are already resonating in the vicinity and could use some positive reinforcement.

A significant enough population has answered the call to take individual responsibility, wholeheartedly exploring these concepts, and are now collaborating with more “imaginal cells”. Even as resistive activism continues in other circles, the energetic scale has already been recalibrated. Gratitude for those who have done the heavy lifting up to this moment.

If not me, who? Commitment and Adventure

Is there undesirable stuff happening? Yep. Is there amazing, wonderful stuff happening? Yep. And if you are reading this, you are the recipient of the good that has evolved— what we have collectively brought into focus by our focus. How do I know? Because you are breathing and using some kind of computer, and therefore have effortless access to more knowledge and opportunity than anyone in manifest history. In this context, a vast array of resources to help initiate and support self-transformation is available, from free downloads, books, teleseminars, practice groups, to private mentoring and live workshops. What’s compelling me currently is the books, meditations and workshops offered by Dr. Joe Dispenza.

There will never be a better time to begin. Fearing the unknown, our old self will say you must wait for certain circumstances outside yourself to transpire. There will always be a condition you or someone else can justify to postpone. This is the first challenge: to choose now, and re-choose now again and again until you find you are really walking a new path.

Being a quantum pioneer is an inside job, so you can start this very moment. We can intentionally rewire our neurology, and people are doing it. Empirical scientific evidence is being amassed as more brave souls commit. Yet since this is a relatively new idea to the public, and the fact that each of us is wired uniquely, there isn’t a clear-cut, easy-peasy, “right” way to do this: hence, the term pioneer. Some challenges: confusion while the old and new personalities sporadically emerge, reactions from others, having to let go of everything you thought defined you even if it was once a good thing, and wishing your loved ones were taking this journey at the same time when you see them looping in emotional habits you are leaving in your past.

After all, neurologically speaking, you are literally losing your old mind and creating a new one.

Rewiring our neurobiology to tip the scales from negative to positive bias takes full commitment, no matter what practice you choose as a starting vehicle. However, the era of giving one’s power away to blindly follow a religion’s or guru’s teachings has passed. Full commitment means you are all-in: body, mind, spirit, and heart; and that you remain awake in the driver’s seat:

  • Taking full responsibility for your life experience, remembering no one else’s choices are responsible for your wellbeing/happiness/success.
  • Accessing your direct connection to Source and Divine guidance.
  • Being compassionate with yourself with the process as old programming is breaking down.
  • Change how you perceive life that allows the best version of you to emerge.

Technically, you already possess all the inner resources, and have access to higher consciousness as much as anyone else. Tapping into the part of your True Self that knows you are Divine and able, you could open your heart and ignite your own transformation without following any existing practice if you got out of your own way. And yet, although the decision to commit is a personal one, those who depend solely on willpower discover that isn’t enough long-term. At some point, with over 7 billion people on the planet, we aren’t here to go it alone. We’re here to collaborate and co-create, learning how Unconditional Love works.

Be aware that any practice should evolve as you do. You won’t be doing the same process with the same intention over and over for years to master a concept like days of yore— our ability to initiate and experience change has evolved!  As you are transforming, negativity becomes less familiar, and ease and joy becomes more automatic and natural. The contrast of life becomes adventure instead of struggle. Eventually, every moment of the adventure called Life is the practice.

Are We Ready for Healing?

Ready for healing Homeostasis Movement

Possibility is everything. As a Self actualization coach, I follow the latest findings in neurology, physiology, and biology about the adaptability of the human bodymind. With each discovery— such as how habits are pruned and wired with measurable neurophysiological changes— naturally there is excitement about learning something new. Yet this can quickly lead to tunnel vision, isolating a subject in a way that dismisses peripheral factors. We forget that each mechanism studied in detail is an interconnected sub-system of a larger holon orchestrating multiple processes.

The human bodymind, like all of life, is constantly evolving. Scientific study of a living organism designed to adapt with every bit of information processed can only review bits of a moment in time that has already past and moved on to the next potential. Then there’s the observer effect that illustrates whatever is being observed (studied, analyzed, etc…) is being influenced by the observer. Science will always be playing catch-up to what is actually true and possible.

For example, earlier pioneers of DNA studies discarded the role of regulatory proteins. It turns out these proteins govern which section of DNA is selected, copied, modified, and expressed. It’s only been recently, and reluctantly, that researchers are embracing epigenetic theory that includes regulatory proteins, and so much more.

When a new piece of the puzzle is observed, we want to exclaim “this is it!”, wishing now that we know this part, we can create a drug or therapy that will fix people by manipulating this piece. And sometimes, in a relative handful of cases, it seems to work. For others, marginal improvement is experienced, increasing some ability and dignity. Then there’s the folks who don’t respond, get worse, or just trade one issue for another due to side effects or discover something else lurking underneath what they thought they were treating.

Scientific study is obviously valuable as one of many mechanisms for understanding life, as long as we remember there will always be infinite possibilities that has yet to be created, discovered, and experienced.

The Potential in Possibility

It’s becoming more apparent that a person’s state of holistic being, especially their attitudes about possibility, tips the scale of health expression. Regardless of the pathology and all the fascinating biological mechanisms involved, or the treatment chosen to address it: if an individual is open to positive possibility more than statistics or pessimistic opinion, they seem to have a greater chance of experiencing improvement. And for some, they make such a powerful decision that they are going to embody a new state of being, that they do, treatment or not. New studies in neuroscience show the real, hardwired changes in the brain when this occurs.

Possibility (artist unknown)As quantum physics is suggesting, moment by moment, the observer collapses possibility into reality. Therefore, it is theorized that the difference between those who seem to suffer from chronic problems or not heal as well as others, and those who seem to maintain wellbeing with little effort or experience spontaneous recoveries, is subconscious beliefs deciding what is possible (or not) within an individual or a group of people. Perceptions and intentions govern how we are recreating ourselves at every moment.

Focusing Our Attention

I prefer to focus upon the mechanisms of thriving and adapting than what makes people sick. This annoys some who want to discuss health and wellbeing with me, as we have been lead to believe that studying what makes people sick is how we learn to stop sickness. In my view, that is just discussing and perpetuating sickness, not wellness. I believe if we spend our energy practicing what inspires our bodymind to express health and joy with the least amount of tinkering, there would be exponentially less disease to heal. Luckily, there’a a wave of renegade scientists and medical professionals who are shifting their attention likewise.

With easy accessibility to infinite information, a healer, guide, or someone desiring to improve can get trapped in the details about the mechanisms of both illness and wellness. We risk the over-intellectualizing that blocks the flow of possibility. A new “box” of thought without embodied experience is created. At the end of the day, the most important thing is the experience of empowered wellbeing no matter how that happened.

If anyone decides to take a look beyond their normal scope of awareness with the intention of seeking exceptions to the rules, they will find them. There’s over 7 billion people after all, and medical studies are taken from a tiny fraction of the population with a predetermined intention. Examples are everywhere of people that seem to operate from another reality since they are not following recommended health practices, yet still thrive. And, many have fully healed from “incurable” diseases. The realization that all these humans are born with the same basic biological hardware as you and me, is proof that nothing is inevitable. Unless, due to the placebo and nocebo effect, we believe something is inevitable. The worst epidemic today is allowing limiting beliefs to run our biology.

Although each human body is equipped with the same systems, the brilliance of this organic machine is that it is designed to be customized with every experience. No two people’s experiences are identical, which means each of us are uniquely wired. Therefore, what equates to ultimate wellbeing for one person will not be exactly the same as the other.

Embracing the Quantum Era

Scientific discoveries can lead to helpful insights and treatments. And, there are also well documented non-medical practices and therapies that millions of people wholeheartedly credit for their healing or wellbeing, scientifically studied or not. I have learned to accept any process employed within someone’s journey which opens a path of empowered living.

This leads to something all of us: practitioners, patients, clients, students… need to embrace: we are creating the possibility of wellness from the unknown, including drawing upon the wisdom distilled from what has already helped others. We tap into this by opening ourselves to new and infinite potential. Our intuition must be employed to guide us through the endless sea of information to hone-in on what is relevant to the unique being standing before us in the moment; whether that being is one’s self, or someone else asking for help.

What ultimately drives my vocational intention: once emerging through the threshold of feeling better or embracing possibility, regardless of how, THEN WHAT? Do we seize the opportunity to discover and express our True Being now that we are healthier? Or do we continue to shrink away from our greatness and avoid engaging a new phase of our lives, since this would require significant change in every aspect of our living reality. If the latter, we cling to the familiar: some staying preoccupied with further manipulating their physical bodies; others chronically seeking more data. Or, we return to old habits until another reason to heal from something emerges.

We experience healing beyond expectation when we fully plunge into next part of our life journey. The fun of welcoming new experiences becomes more compelling than the familiarity of what has transpired. And for more people, realizing the challenge in the form of an issue, big or small; whether physical, social, financial, or any other… was the signal to welcome a new state of being which integrates and amplifies body, mind, heart, and Soul.

Because I Can: Choosing a New Perspective

It’s no secret many of us are addicted to bad news under the spell of “staying informed”: a learned cultural duty, and often mistaken for education. Dramatized stories and images of those who are suffering or deemed underprivileged maintain the illusion of separateness and hopelessness. However, when the data is calculated, it is argued that collectively humans are actually subject to less poverty and violence per capita than historically recorded. There are also millions of people doing whatever it takes to move humanity forward and upward for the greater good of the entire planet. But these people and stories are not mainstream newsworthy. We must make a sincere effort to take conscious control of our attention, and search elsewhere for empowering information to create a new perspective.

Regardless, a reason we experience intense urgency, outrage, or despair when exposed to tragedy is that we are growing less tolerant of such suffering— and should be as humanity evolves. Yet in response, if we do not update where we focus our attention, ongoing emotional reactions like these trigger physiological processes in the body that eventually fatigue it. Our cells are bathed in chemical signals that hinder rational and creative thought, heart rhythms, digestion, repair and renewal of tissues. We become increasingly susceptible to illness, and less able to effectively participate in our daily activities— let alone do something to help humanity. Then we feel more hopeless, and the spiral continues. This stress response was originally meant to be triggered on rare occasion to escape mortal threat, then quickly cease. Now, many of us are living from trigger to trigger, barely recovering before the next. This means we are not returning to homeostasis, where our body and attention can fully return to processes of health and opportunity.

Privilege Guilt

A recurring theme in my relationship circles is the holistic paralysis caused by what I will call “privilege guilt”. This can happen if you perceive yourself as privileged, or feel bad when you imagine being healthier, wealthier or successful in the future. Behavioral characteristics can include: turning down wonderful opportunities, a habit of judgement of others and self (kept to oneself or shared), preoccupation with menial or familiar tasks with increased scrutiny, discomfort when others express praise or gratitude (verbal or physical gift), lack of rest and recharging, always prioritizing others’ wellbeing over one’s own, and not asking for help. Some experience bouts of depression or anger.

According to holistically-minded doctors and scientists, physical symptoms can include: digestive, blood pressure and heart issues, chronic pain, tension or fatigue. And almost any medical professional will agree that chronic stress, no matter how it is triggered, is a significant contributor of every disease. Treating these symptoms often become another preoccupation, seeking physical intervention for a physiological process triggered by emotional habit. Just remember there is a difference between symptom and cause, and our culture is experiencing an epidemic of ignoring cause.

Some privilege guilt attitudes:

  • Who am I to have opportunity/prosperity/community when others do not?
  • How can I or anyone enjoy abundance when others are suffering?
  • Until there is “equality” for all, I cannot celebrate or enjoy what I have, have experienced, or can access.
  • I am not “above” doing certain tasks myself. To prove I am not “better” than others, I will do these tasks even if I don’t really enjoy them.
  • I will not take or create a new opportunity to apply and hone my expertise or talent, because that would take away an opportunity for someone else who needs it more than me.

Instead, consider:

  • How does it serve others to limit participation, reject self-nurturing, or suffer guilt after enjoyment: denying humanity or the planet the creative expression of our unique abilities, wisdom and love?
  • How can others learn to shine and participate at their highest potential, if those who can do not? Sometimes it takes just one example to plant an inspirational seed. Can I be the source of inspiration?
  • How can humanity possibly evolve for the better of all, if those who supposedly have a higher consciousness won’t allow themselves to live the life they have now to their fullest potential?
  • If there is any positive potential for the future, including creative solutions to what we perceive as problems, how can this potential manifest if those who have the resources, ability, knowledge and heart do not participate at their full capacity?
  • Life is a co-creative experience. When we insist on doing everything ourselves, we miss creating opportunity for others who would love the chance to contribute and learn. Then we become overwhelmed and bitter that we don’t have the time or energy to fully express our personal greatness. Like the individual cells in our bodies, we are healthy when serving each other and the whole for a greater purpose, while expressing individual potential.

Am I clear about the difference between:

  • Narcissism vs. constructive confidence and gratitude?
  • Consuming vs. receiving, self-care, and creating opportunity for joy and prosperity for others through inspired participation and celebration?
  • Overcare vs. compassion?
  • Controlling vs. participating?
  • Sacrifice vs. inspired service
  • Failure vs. necessary creative process?
  • Taking blame vs. responsibility?

Another contributor to privilege guilt is the kind of environmentalism which advocates playing and existing as small as possible to leave the smallest “footprint”. Yet the natural process of life itself is destruction and creation, and like it or not, we humans are part of that process no matter how much we try to tread lightly. This has created a stigma for those who want to or are participating wholeheartedly in life, which includes experimentation that inherently includes failures.

If a failure is considered a waste— charged with a negative energy, we punish ourselves or others when it happens, and subsequently limit our authentic participation in co-creating the future. Trust as your actions are inspired from a place of Heart and Spirit (hence, in-Spired), you will become more efficient with your energy and resources while attracting more to create more, enabling you to contribute your unique gift to ensure a thriving future. This document used natural resources to be created and for you to read. The finished document is not the first draft, and took a different path and more time than initially intended. And it’s all good.

Kriste Brushaber Because I Can Choosing a New PerspectiveWhere to start: Change Your Information Diet

Learn what good is being done in the world right now, weaning yourself off the stream of media negativity that actually represents only a small fraction of reality. You must change your perspective if you want to change anything you are experiencing.

My personal experience after choosing a new perspective and changing my diet of information: there is so much good manifesting in the world right now, such amazing creativity, and solutions ready to be implemented addressing every problem we can imagine. More people each day are doing good deeds without expectation of reward or recognition, seeing differences as strengths, collaborating instead of competing, and finding likeminded co-creators determined to create a positive future. If you have access to the internet, you have the power to find and learn about these realities. You can also set out in your community with the intention to spot Goodness in Action, from the smallest gesture to big projects. Seek (with an open heart and mind), and you shall find. As far as I am concerned, it’s imperative to not only discover what is already blooming, but also allow this to fill your heart and inspire your personal path.

Your existence is not an accident. The question is, why am I here, right now, at this time in history, in the circumstances I am experiencing? If I have any: money, time, education, connections, talent, arms and legs, hugs and smiles… can this be utilized for the greatest good possible and to experience my own wellbeing? The truth is: if you aren’t allowing your wellbeing, you will eventually have nothing to give.  When you are resonating with your wellbeing, you have abundant energy, ability, and inspiration to participate in life however you choose.

Assume you can discern the difference between greed or gluttony, and enjoying life in the authentic spirit of raising humanity’s heart resonance and overall positive potential. This means contributing your unique gifts not because you “should”, but because you can.

Science is confirming the power and effects of heart resonance. It is clear that our invisible intentions and emotions profoundly effect other people along with our personal health, not just our words and actions. An action resulting from unconditional Love, charged by joy and awe for Life, is exponentially more powerful than the same action initiated from guilt or sense of duty.

Recognizing this tendency in myself, I am choosing to experience an inspired life because I can, serving both my soul and the good of all.

Be the change that you wish to see in the world” – Mahatma Gandhi
