The High Priestess

The High Priestess | Depth psychology, interfaith chaplaincy | Scoop.it
The High Priestess, whether in her dark or light expression, teaches that life is not about winning the war within oneself, but learning to use the qualities of contrariety wisely, so as to create a dynamic union within one's inner life, creativity, and self expression. It must also be remembered that the moon only shows half of its orb. The dark side of the moon is always hidden and remains a mystery. The moon is known traditionally as the mystery of mysteries. In the darkness of the hidden side of the moon is the gateway for consciousness to move beyond its own emotional barriers into the deeper, more universal currents of awareness and desire.

"Life is not about winning the war within oneself, but learning to use the qualities of contrariety wisely, so as to create a dynamic union within one's inner life, creativity, and self expression" 

This is wisdom, this is life the way it expresses itself throughout the universe, this is the paradox of opposites, remembering that Heaven and Earth unite in the Heart.

AN INVITATION TO SIT IN OUR HEART CENTER MEDITATION CIRCLE

HEART CENTER MEDITATION 

“We are really not human beings on a spiritual journey…rather spiritual beings on a human journey”…Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, French philosopher-priest.

Welcome to our Heart Center Meditation, "Private Group" on facebook. We have created this Heart Center Meditation [HCM] group specifically to enter, explore and deepen into the transpersonal Heart Center through meditation in a non-local distance format to discover what wants to be revealed. 

Attuning together we enter the collective presence in our non-local meditation...enter the Heart Center, fourth chakra, the Anahata. The heart center cannot be mastered, it masters us. This is a lifetime adventure. It has been said at different times, by different people, in various ways that the Heart Center is the Acme of Human Spiritual Development.

From time to time we will focus on one of these 5 primary emanations of the Heart Center; Supernal Compassion, Innate Harmony, The Healing Presence, Unconditioned/Unconditional Love and the Beloved in Service.

You are welcome to include your friends as we attune and commune around the globe in Heart Center Meditation. Don’t worry if you cannot make the exact time on any specific day, drop in as you can in the lowering of an eyelid, place your hands on the heart center and enter. We have a wonderful induction into the heart center with the hand mudra demonstrated by Dr. Anne Marie Chaisson;http://sco.lt/8mYEID.

We offer a 30 minute Heart Center Meditation in a virtual format on Sunday mornings at 7am  - 7:30 am PDT/PST and on Wednesday evening from 7:00 pm -7:30 pm PDT/PST.

 

Link for corresponding time where you are;http://www.timeanddate.com/

It is an essential part of each member’s participation to familiarize themselves with our HCM “About” description and  please read our file titled Housekeeping Guidelines and Group Review.

We only accept membership in this Group from those who are requesting from their personal page. All posts within this group must be made in English.

To enter the heart center is a surrendering process, letting go, dissolving into a larger vehicle and realization...that one can no longer possess the heart center as personal. This is an inclusive path, it is not goal oriented. 

There is no defined or specific end point...all that is required here is to open to the mystery of manifestation. As we move into the awareness of the heart center, we catch the suchness of life and things, no longer viewing them through biases and preferences. Heaven and Earth, Mind and Body, Logos and Eros, unite in the transpersonal Heart Center. 

Namaste ~ Aloha ~ Aho

Laura M. Smith's curator insight, August 23, 2015 4:39 PM

This 12 minute video is well worth the watch to experience the incredible journey of Ms. Katie Sanford, Jungian Analyst. In her words:

 

"The paintings and commentaries I share here are pictorial interactions through which I attempted to relate my fragile ego to the archetypal forces that flooded in on me.  The paintings, with their related dialogues, helped contain the chaotic incursions from the unconscious and provided symbolic images that I could meditate upon and, over time, integrate."

 

My own archetypal painting exploration has been very similar to hers.

Michael Goodman's curator insight, September 3, 2015 10:39 AM

Thank You Eva and Laura for bringing this to my attention.

Let Life Teach You What Spirit Is | Depth psychology, interfaith chaplaincy | Scoop.it

"Let life teach you what spirit is... By conforming to spiritual ideals imposed from the outside through the force of tradition, people often channel themselves into models of behaviour that violate their inner essence. We are all guaranteed realization when we strip away our pre-conceived notions about spiritual perfection, give up striving for some idealized end-point called 'enlightenment,' and discover the magnificence of what we already are and live that fully."

THE SACRED ART Of ALCHEMY

THE SACRED ART Of ALCHEMY | Depth psychology, interfaith chaplaincy | Scoop.it
Much to his astonishment, C. G. Jung discovered that the ancient art of alchemy was describing, in symbolic language, the journey that all of us must take towards embodying our own intrinsic wholeness, what he called the process of “individuation.” As Jung wrote, “I had very soon seen that analytical psychology [the psychology Jung developed] coincided in a most curious way with alchemy. The experiences of the alchemists, were, in a sense, my experiences, and their world was my world. This was, of course, a momentous discovery. I had stumbled upon the historical counterpart of my psychology of the unconscious.” The alchemists, over the course of centuries, had generated a wide range of symbolic images which directly corresponded to the anatomy of the unconscious which Jung had been mapping through his painstaking work with...

PATTERNS

PATTERNS | Depth psychology, interfaith chaplaincy | Scoop.it
Excerpted quote via Alicia Schmoller.... "We see everything through our patterns. Our experience of life is determined by our patterns – it has nothing to do with what is really going on. Someone with low self-esteem usually has a superiority complex – it protects them from their power drive. They are both inflated – inadequacy is inflation on the negative side, and its opposite is the pumped-up, positive inflation. Be a witness to the fluctuations in self-esteem – validate the pattern, appreciate it, live it. Let the patterns be – they are not the totality and, at the same time, they are an important piece. Let them run their course. To engage the unconscious you need to sacrifice reactivity to discover the energies that are really present. Our task is to apprentice ourselves to the mystery, to have the eyes to see what is. And, if you cannot change a given situation, change your state of consciousness about it, and you’ll discover new possibilities."....Brugh Joy, M.D.

Life's Energy Serves Your Soul

Life's Energy Serves Your Soul | Depth psychology, interfaith chaplaincy | Scoop.it
Excerpted from Conference, via Patricia D "Life’s energy is not devoted to the ego. It’s devoted and serves your soul. It doesn’t matter which pattern you discover you are operating in, you always want to catch a glimpse. It is one tree in the forest of your own interior. And it always has its complement. The abandoner is in love with the abandoned. When it is taken all the way over to an extreme, it is very hard to see the other side. In fact most of us operate in the extremes of one-sidedness and cast out the other part, which is call projection. We cast out the unseen part onto everyone or everything else. It can’t be me. You’re wrong. As you move more and more into the awareness of the heart center, it is way beyond the personal. You really do catch the suchness of things. It’s not being viewed through biases and preferences. It’s being viewed through suchness and this is what gives you the ability to not only see clearly but it gives you the ability to respond clearly"....Brugh Joy, M.D.

Surrendering

Surrendering | Depth psychology, interfaith chaplaincy | Scoop.it
"There was a moment, in the mystery of my ego's spontaneous surrendering to Wide Awake Present Being that "I" was flooded for many minutes with a cascade of images that spanned all that appeared horrific (to my ego) and beatific (to my ego). They contained images of that which I surely deem cruel and images of supreme love and kindness. Images of Nature and images of humanity within Nature. There was a sense of being both an ego-bound person with her reactions AND of Being Wide Awake Subject-less Presence. I knew then, that it all belongs, beyond my ego comprehension and that my tears of grief and tears of joy and my acceptances and my reactions were no different than the wind that blows and the seas that move" via facebook from Voice Dialogue

The Aware Ego Process

The Aware Ego Process | Depth psychology, interfaith chaplaincy | Scoop.it
Via facebook, Voice Dialogue and J'amie ona Pangaia. "The Aware Ego Process may arrive by chance, or contemplation or through the formal Voice Dialogue facilitation process, and it is stabilized more and more through regular practice. This practice is not a solo practice (as mediation can be) simply because the skillful and trained facilitator offers an outside, objective and non-judgmental witness to 'both sides' of who we think we are. They are outside of your system of perception and so can see things in you that you are unconsciously defended against seeing. As my mentors of over 28 years - Hal and Sidra Stone have taught, and were speaking on a practical note, it realistically takes several years of actively working in facilitation with one's primary selves to begin to really develop a more stable Aware Ego Process with them. Those primary selves are still there, but so now are the ones that they oppose. We still can habitually identify with them, but we 'wake up' to them more easily and more frequently. And all the selves begin to gradually evolve a bit as we become more conscious of, and self-caring of the underlying vulnerability they try to manage. It is the same with meditation. We may arrive at clear insights (or 'awakenings') from this or that meditation session. But the one who meditates regularly over time is the one who is better able to stabilize and live those insights and awakenings. There is No Blame for living identified with selves. They are the vehicle for experiencing our psychological life, just as our body is our 'vehicle' for having a physical experience. Still, identifying with our inner ego selves, or identifying with our body is a cause of great suffering. By identifying with, I mean holding, grasping at, trying to make THIS ego-self or THIS body permanent. As the Buddha taught, everything is impermanent, not fixed - and trying to maintain the illusion of permanence (such as I AM THIS self - responsible, caring, spiritual, hard-working, etc.) causes suffering for ourselves and others, even if it appears that these are 'good' selves to be! This is a main reason that I feel that Voice Dialogue is very harmonious with a Buddhist perspective of life. It is NOT Buddhism, but works well together. all my best to you"...J'aime ona Pangaia
