Serotonin Facilitates Deep States of Spirituality

Serotonin Molecule

Serotonin a chemical present in your brain, that can be released through high states of meditation or through the use of psychedelic drugs, has been proved to make you susceptible to spiritual experiences.

A team of Swedish researchers had found that the presence of a receptor that regulates general serotonin activity in the brain correlates with people’s capacity for transcendence, the ability to apprehend phenomena that cannot be explained objectively.

Because of the mystical experiences users of psychedelic drugs like LSD have had scientists have long suspected that serotonin influences spirituality. Although now they have proof from brain scans linking the capacity for spirituality with a major biological element.

 

Reporting in the American Journal of Psychiatry, the researchers see the evidence as contradicting the common belief that religious behavior is determined strictly by environmental and cultural factors. What it means is those with a higher concentration of serotonin receptors will therefore most likely show a stronger inclination towards experiences where they see God or they experience higher connections with themselves and the universe.

Those whose brain scans showed the most receptor activity proved on personality tests to have the strongest proclivity to spiritual acceptance. Apart from the elevate consciousness experiences, Serotonin is in charge of moderating mood, metabolism, and sexuality.

Question Reality Like Never Before Tags: Alternative Knowledge Esoterica spirituality the matrix the shift

 

Has our existence been hijacked eons ago by higher dimensional entities and we are now prisoners within a matrix of deceit?If so, then this prison of minds has the door wide open and we can choose to exit it, whenever we desire. All that is required is for us to wake up from the dream, so that we can see the door… and to actually want to go out and “disconnect.”The unbreakable Free Will

 

Free Will is, allegedly, one of the unbreakable laws of our multiverse. Those who know the rules of the game can bend them in their favor by using various tricks and smoke screens, but they can never braak them.

 

This means that our consent was required and we are dreaming this collective dream because we – somehow - agreed to partake.

Remember what Morpheus told Neo in The Matrix film?

 

Morpheus: “The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.

Neo: What truth?

Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.”

Unfortunately, most of the people love it here! This reality of pain and sufferance suits them perfectly and they would never brake the spell, if given the opportunity. This reality is a drug and too many people are addicted to it.

 

“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, and carpenters; the very minds of the people we are trying to save. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent upon the system, they will fight to protect it.” – Morpheus (Reference)

You’ve felt it your entire life…

 

Dreams should make us question reality

 

When we dream at night, we don’t realize that it is all happening in our minds. No matter how absurd and impossible a dream is, we never question it while asleep. In fact, the dream is so real to us, that when we wake up to this existence, we are emotionally affected by it. To us, it was real.

The movie Inception will help you process everything better (Inception – Explaining the dream world):

So what makes that a dream, and this a reality?

 

Dreams within the dream

After studying the life work of so many scientists (e.g. Dr. Ian Stevenson, Dr. Helen Wambach, Dr. Michael Newton) who were able to bring such conclusive evidence proving reincarnation, I am now a strong believer myself.

Holding this knowledge makes one decode this experience that we call “life on Earth,” as being similar to “going to college” and partially explains the reason why we are here: to learn and evolve, one lesson at a time.

And as soon as we master all of the given lessons, we conclude the incarnation cycle and we proceed with new challenges, in a vastly superior dimension.

But this also means that we are now, in fact, still dreaming and everything around us is virtual, non-existing. The software that we are now part of, is designed to trick us into believing that all of this is real, when in fact, it is not.

According to the thousands of people who have been regressed into the life between lives by the Newton Institute professionals, everything that we experience here is designed to teach us important lessons. As soon as we die in this “reality,” we instantly wake up as non-physical entities, with vastly superior capabilities as compared to those of a human vehicle.

This is also confirmed by those who have had a near-death experience or those who are able to consciously move out of the human vehicle through what is known as “astral projection.”

This means that when we die, we are basically waking up from a collective dream. A very profound and intense one, but still a dream.

Let’s do a quick recap:

When we dream, we don’t question that “reality,” no matter how absurd it becomes. For us, those things are real and we do our best to cope with everything. We only decode the experience as a dream, after we wake up. More or less, the same goes for life and death: after we die, we wake up in another “reality” and decode the previous one as yet another dream.

It’s very similar to Inception‘s concept of dreams within the dream…

Yup, and it may very well be just the tip of the iceberg!

The Holographic Illusion of Reality

Pondering about dreams for a while will inevitably lead you to the conclusion that dreams are various states of holographic realities.

When we wake up from a dream, we can no longer interact with the dream world, because we have already moved out of it. Dreams are holographic realities created by our minds, and there are people who trained themselves to become aware while dreaming and consciously interact with the dream world around them.

(This technique is called lucid dreaming and there are various ways for everyone to learn it).

A similar thing happens to us when we die. Our consciousness moves not only out of the human vehicle, but also out of this holographic reality, thus making interaction with this realm almost impossible.

 
The Nature of Mystical Experience Tags: Esoterica Spirituality Consciousness

James C. Wilhelm,Waking Times

Thousands of books have been written about mysticism over thousands of years, and this essay is a mere 1,012 words. Do I really think I can convey the essence, power and bliss of the mystical in a thousand words?

I do.

That is what I set out to do after recently viewing numerous videos and reading many essays that I found on the World Wide Web. After reviewing this mass of content, I realized that after all those hours of viewing and reading content by gurus, masters and experts, I realized I had learned nothing of value. Indeed, much of the content was nothing if not misleading.

Lao Tzu says it well in the Tao Te Ching:

The Tao that can be spoken is not the eternal Tao.
The name that can be named is not the eternal name.
The nameless is the origin of Heaven and Earth…
~ Translation by Derek Lin.

The following one thousand words are descriptors that come directly from my experiences of the mystical beginning in 1961.

We ask three questions:

  1. WHAT IS A MYSTICAL EXPERIENCE?
  2. WHY BOTHER WITH IT?
  3. CAN ANYONE EXPERIENCE MYSTICAL TRUTH?

What is a Mystical Experience?

The mystical experience is the direct experience of your true self, which is the singular essence of being that creates and sustains all that ever has been, all that is now, and all that ever will be.

  • Direct experience is the unfiltered knowing of something with no intermediary
  • Your true self is the God-Self that lives within you always.
  • It is who you are at your essence: eternal, uncreated, infinite love.
  • Singular essence of being: is the unchanging, eternal, enduring reality upon which the tapestry of life is woven. It is your ultimate Self, the energy that underlies what we know as everyday life.

Mystical realization is a non-experiential experience of the true and original singular nature that underlies the manifestation of the phenomenal world; it is the dissolution of the everyday distinctions of time and space, knower and known subject and object.

Why Bother with Awareness of Ultimate Reality?

Before the existence of the material universe there was, and is now, one. Experience is not possible when all of existence is an infinite, unborn singularity. The one had nothing to experience and thus no reference point for its own awareness.

Despite the apparent differences you see in the world of multiplicity in which you live and breathe, everything you see is you. Everywhere you look you see yourself. The original one is always one, perceiving itself in this multiplicity of wonder as many. From this experience of multiplicity, the one learns about its own True and Original Nature. That is, you discover who you really are.

Your life in the world is an opportunity for self-understanding. Self-understanding is enlightenment, and enlightenment is the direct experience of the mystical — the all and the nothing, the ancient of days, the singular creator of this universe of multiplicity — you.

Given the sole purpose of the existence of this infinite space time universe is to provide you with objects of experience that are all you, perhaps this is the real, or true, reason for being here alive in a body in the first place.
The process of self knowledge / self understanding that seems to culminate in the mystical experience actually commences with this experience. Knowing your full potential is an eternal trip that never, ever ends.

Shedding all that is unreal about you leaves you with nothing but the real and what is real is the bliss of knowing your true and original self — your singular nature, one with all that is. Knowing we are all one, you understand that the object of all of your thoughts and actions can only be you.

Your true self is the singular self that never began and never ends. Your true self is the power that creates all that is. Your true self is the power that has created every experience and every detail of your life that you have ever known.

The mystical experience is awareness of the incredible power that you are. You have created all that is and you don’t remember having done it. Now that you are aware of truth, you will consciously create and recreate your world in accordance with your most powerful desires, visions and dreams.

What Can I Do to Have an Experience of Truth?

You are having such an experience right now. There is no way to escape your true nature. Immerse yourself, be fully present in each moment. It is only in this moment that transformation occurs.

There is nothing you need do and nowhere you need go. You are this singular nature of reality right now and you are not consciously aware of it.

Being consciously aware of the ground of all being, what some call God, is to be consciously aware of your own True and Original Self. Awareness of your Self is awareness of all that is.

This mystical, non-experiential experience is who you are right now; your essence is vibrating within you right now, waiting patiently for you.

Consciously intend to be your true and original self right now. Breathe in deeply, breathe out thoroughly. Focus your conscious awareness on the movement of your breath in and out.

Now ride your in-breath to the silence within you and listen —  intently and carefully — to the beautiful sound of the perfect silence that you are.

It is possible for each of us to know and understand the most enduring part of who we are, the part that remains after we have looked at ourselves and released all that we are not. This self understanding is enlightenment, and there are as many ways to enlightenment as there are sentient beings in the universe. Creating a world of peace where our similarities transcend our differences and where we love each other without condition is simple, as simple as being exactly who we are right now.
