Self-driving life???

Part 5 in the MindValley Reunion=Mind Blown series, which continues next week

Remember when a hand-sized computer was a thing of science fiction? Technology is evolving exponentially, and while we have glimpses right now of technologies that could radically alter our lives, our work, and our communities, such as self-driving cars, we have just as many reasons to want things the way they were – simpler.

At the MindValley Reunion last month in San Diego, Jeffrey Allen, a former Department of Energy Engineer turned Energy Healer, pointed out an eye-opening parallel between self-driving cars and self-driving lives. What this means, is that we are shifting from a paradigm of “doing” to “being.”

In other words, right now you have to drive – get in your car, start it up, keep your foot on the gas, break, steer, and stay completely alert to avoid mistakes of other drivers and avoid making mistakes yourself. Otherwise, BOOM – you crash. This is a high-stakes activity, and stress increases when you have to make decisions with minimal information. But if you didn’t have to do that, then you could read, watch a movie, take a guitar lesson, eat and drink, and a myriad of other things.

In a self-driving life, you don’t have to strive. You don’t have to punch a time card, commute, labor, attend meetings, spend hours in front of your computer, clean, or make any other effort unless you want to, unless you are inspired to. You do as you are inspired to do. The rest is just a focus on your being – your mindset, your heartset, and your bodyset – How you are being.

A lot of Americans supported Trump for his promises to revive the coal mining industry and domestic manufacturing, to save jobs, and get depressed economies back to work. If your career has been impacted by the shift to newer technologies, then this seemed like salvation.

If you were raised to believe your value is in what you do, then this shift is probably more than a little unsettling, and it probably seems wrong and against everything you have been taught. Plus, you are justified in feeling very much like your skills have been considered obsolete, and that creates a deep need to defend your skills and your value, and fight the shift any way you know how.

There is an innate resistance to change and that is all thanks to our brain. That doesn’t mean we can’t eventually reach a place of enthusiastic adoption, especially if the changes mean an easier life.

Does the following statement make you feel relieved, angry, or confused?

You do not have to be, do, or have anything in order to be valued or loved as a person.

Your vocation is not your value.

Even if you are against the idea of allowing people to just be rather than having to hustle, I want you to imagine right now what YOUR life would be like if you could do less, strive less, and have all of your needs fulfilled?

BE in that feeling.

Right now your logical brain may find this hard to conceive, let alone believe. How could this be?

Every day new awareness is pulling us toward a collective, undeniable truth, and as we evolve as open-minded, open-hearted, open-spirited receptacles of new awareness and intuition, we gain wisdom as to which actions will be the most meaningful, impactful, and productive. That is what creates greater ease AND time.

But in the meantime, we face conflict. Those who want things to stay as they are and those who are further along in accepting and adopting the change are pulling and pushing. We will all weave in and out of four different stages (below) of living between resistance and allowing, and can even be all of them simultaneously:

A – Survival, material living

B – Still doing for material living, but decisions are more influenced by pulling of the heart and soul

C – More fully heart-driven, but at risk of self-righteousness that leads to inability to accept people in A and B

D – Balanced between spirit and mind.

Eventually Jeffrey Allen sees everyone moving into greater awareness. In fact, he documents evidence as being the simultaneous increasing rate of vibration that both the universe and us humans, and it’s accelerating rapidly. In the 1970s the universe was vibrating at 7.83 Hz. Then in 2014 it was measured at 24 Hz, and in 2017 it was measured at 40 Hz.

The risk of resistance Allen refers to as the X-zone – where the conflict leads to self-annihilation and we destroy the planet and the human race beyond repair. We have to look out for attachments, the need to play small and safe, needing control, which will keep us in the slow lane, and needing to be right and judging others. Judging others, he says, is a sign of progress, as long as we eventually let it go.

Jeffrey Allen depicts a world where if you turn inward first to be aware and present, you can then intuit what action and energy you send outward. This is what creates your self-driving life.

If this sounds crazy to you, I challenge you to disprove it.

If this sounds delightful to you, I challenge you to prove it.

Try letting go for a week. Surrender to doing what brings you joy before you get to your actions. Let go of what happens and expectations of rewards. Try trusting that there are forces conspiring in your favor, and let them do their magic. Whatever goes wrong, if anything, during this time, can be repaired if it’s meant to be.

 

I would love to hear the results of this experiment.

Part 3 in the MindValley Reunion=Mind Blown series, which continues next week

Have you ever been to a live learning event? It could be a conference, or a seminar, or a Ted talk. Have you ever been awe-inspired by what you learned? Did you have an epiphany that changed your life, or did you realize something about who you are that altered your idea of yourself and the world?

If you have, then you know it’s an experience worth doing again, and yet life and obligations can push it down our priority list, as powerful as we know it has the potential to be.

If you have not, you may be initially out of your comfort zone, especially when efforts are made to have you fully integrate and become acquainted with your fellow attendees, but if you are willing and able to open your heart and mind to new possibilities, you WILL take with you insights that are bound to change the trajectory of your life, if you are also then able to apply them, and given you have found the right event.

Last week I shared with you that the MindValley Reunion in San Diego August 19th and 20th was one of those such events.

Over the next several weeks, I intend to relay to you some of the most influential moments and teachings for me. Even though all in all it was just 16+ hours of experience, my challenge will be trying to capture the power of the moments, and I’m still only on things revealed by the host, Mia Lux Koning, in the initial opening of the event.

Lux means light, and I can attest to how she illuminated some very interesting observations that started off my experience in such a thought provoking way, setting the tone for a bombardment of illuminations. One I covered last week, how some people perceive personal transformation to be selfish. [http://epiccareering.com/personal-development-selfish/]

This week, I want to focus on her observation that personal development has not yet been adopted widely by people on the East coast (of the US). She has traveled all over the world with MindValley, and lives on the East coast, as do I. I have noticed that many of the personal development coaches that I have learned from live on the West coast.

That always left me wondering, as I do sometimes when it comes to my clients’ decisions to relocate to an industry hub, as well as my own questions in my youth when I considered pursuing a career in music if I should go to New York or Los Angeles or make a name for my home metropolis, Philly, like Boyz II Men or The Roots. If what you want to change the world or make a name for yourself, do aim to be a big fish in a little pond, and then upgrade, or dive into a pond full of sharks as a little fish? And, does where you live even matter in this connected world where people collaborate remotely with ease?

If what I want is for more people to realize the integral role that personal development has in achieving goals in any realm of life, do I go to where people are already in alignment with that concept and capture that audience, or do I meet the rest of the people where they are at, earn their trust, build rapport and leverage that to influence them to experiment with various techniques and tools?

So many other questions were spurred by this one observation. I attempted to speak with Mia about them, but you can imagine how busy she was; we only had a total of 3 minutes or so to speak, total.

Some of these questions were spurred by things I had learned previously from MindValley teachers, such as Christie Marie Sheldon, and authors, such as Lynne McTaggart [The Field, The Intention Experiment.] Follow this like a theorem, if you can remember learning those. If all of the following are true, then… (read the bullets below and then see my assertion.)

  • Jeffrey Allen, a Saturday speaker at the MindValley Reunion, pointed out that the Earth, as scientifically measured, is vibrating at an exponentially higher rate than in the past, and that vibration continues to increase exponentially. In the 1970s, the earth’s vibration was 7.83 Hz. In 2014, it was ~ 24 Hz. Today it is 40 Hz. This increase is true of the human species as well. Our vibration is increasing at the same ratio. (More on Jeffrey Allen’s presentation in later weeks.)
  • Christie Marie Sheldon revealed that there are various parts of the earth where the vibration is very low, and others vibrating much higher. War torn areas, for instance, are vibrating very low. The scale that she uses is from 0-1000 and is based on researchers using kinesiology and muscle testing.
    • Muscle testing was demonstrated definitively by Donna Eden on Sunday at the event. Even the medical doctors that were in attendance could not refute the veracity of muscle testing. (More on Donna’s demonstration in later weeks.)
  • In her book The Field, Lynne McTaggart chronicled historical clinical and government tests that support the science behind quantum physics, the law of attraction, the mind-body connection, and our inherent intuitive and psychic abilities, and then in her book The Intention Experiment (The Field is a prerequisite for reading The Intention Experiment,) she went on to use science to demonstrate how we can tap into the Universal forces within all of us to influence reality.
  • In 1993, 4,000 practitioners of Transcendental Meditation focused their practices on reducing crime in Washington D.C. between June 7th and July 30th. Their goal was to reduce homicide, assault and theft by 20%. They achieved a 23.3% drop, and the results seemed to correspond with the number of participants, and there was a lasting effect on lower violent crime.
  • Back to Lynne McTaggart, who shared that remote psychokinesis, or the ability to use the power of the mind to affect physical reality from afar, had proven to be such a credible practice with substantial results that the US government had a program to use such capabilities to gain intelligence from afar, as well as to impact enemies’ environments, bodies, and weapons. This is the same program the book and movie Men Who Stare At Goats starring George Clooney is based on.

If all of this science is true, then…

We are capable of influencing peace and positive progress, AND by collaborating in real time from remote places, focusing on the same results, we may be able to

  • Disarm North Korea
  • Accelerate rebuilding and recovery of Texas and Louisiana
  • Reverse global warming, so that these regions and everyone else impacted can stay in their homes
  • End the war in Afghanistan
  • Ease tensions in Syria, South Sudan, and the Ukraine
  • Alleviate hunger in Nigeria
  • Deliver rain to Somalia
  • Of course, reduce violent crime in your own neighborhood or city

And on and on…

I think you are seeing now how the 10K hours+ I have invested in personal development is anything but selfish, if that was even a perception you had, but more so, I hope you realize the significance and potential impacts of these findings.

Now questions that remain are:

  • How and where do I start to lead such an effort, or is an effort already ongoing that simply needs more awareness, and I can contribute in that way?
  • Do I focus on gathering people from areas already aware of practicing disciplines that have proven effective (which include prayer,) or…
  • Do I bide my time, increase my influence as it relates to careers and purpose and then leverage a greater platform to influence such an initiative?
  • Can this even wait? Vishen Lakhiani presented on The Human Reset and shared an alarming insight from Tom Chi that if we fail to raise the consciousness of the people on the planet, and technology continues to evolve at a faster pace, then technology is sure to be used for lower-consciousness intentions – war, and we may not be able to save our planet!

You may be in a place where you have immediate issues in your own life that require your focus and attention before you can expand concern to others in the world, and I hope that you turn to personal development, which can look like spiritual development, or psychological development, or physical development, or mindfulness development. Science has proven its effectiveness.

I suggest you start with MindValley – they have teachers and courses that cover almost all realms of your life, and if you have an issue causing you immediate pain and requiring all your focus, they most likely have a teacher, coach and/or course to help you, except for careers – you can still come to me for that.
