Huna Principle #4

No, I didn’t miss #3. That’s actually “Energy Flows Where Attention Goes” and I did it out of order. 🙂

Principle #4 is hugely important from a psychological and spiritual perspective. It’s “Now Is the Moment of Power”.

Like most of the seven principles, it’s deceptively simple, yet profound. From a spiritual perspective, anything you try to will into existence, manifest, pray for, etc… MUST be visualized in the now. The past is gone, you can’t manifest anything there. The future doesn’t exist as anything other than an abstract hypothetical or series of possibilities. Right now is the only thing you have power over, and the only moment that truly exists. “Some day, I’d like to be rich…” Well, if the universe ever gets to “some day” maybe it’ll happen, lol. Even if in your mind something will take time to make happen, visualize it’s seeds being planted NOW.

You can have the greatest ability to manipulate spiritual energy in the world but it all means nothing if you miss the target of the here and now.

From a psychological perspective… Humans spend far too much time dwelling on the past and wishing for the future. Yes, past events can be extremely painful. I’ve been through some really bad ones myself. The hard truth is they only have as much impact on our present as we choose to give them. The happiest day of my life was when I *finally* truly grasped this and Let It Go. 🙂

The future… Misdirected energy also since it doesn’t exist. Don’t focus on wanting to be rich or happy some day. Focus on the step you can take today to make your dream come true.

By the way… My hang up always was the idea that we should learn from the past. If you don’t, you repeat your mistakes. There’s a big difference between learning from the past and being controlled or outright consumed by it though. Learn from it, make reasonable amends if you can (and are the party in the wrong), then let it go while remembering the lesson.

Huna Principle #2

One more post. I’m doing my best to be more attentive to this blog. 🙂

Our second principle is the boldest statement of the bunch:

There Are No Limits

Let me start an explanation by quoting Serge Kahili King again:

“There are no real boundaries between you and your body, you and other people, you and the world, or you and God. Any divisions used for discussion are terms of function and convenience. In other words, Separation is only a useful Illusion. An additional meaning of this principle is that there are unlimited potentials for creativity. You can create, in some form or another, anything you can conceive.”

This explanation gets into some of the other Huna principles, such as the ideas that everything is connected and part of a greater whole. Because everything is connected and part of a greater whole, you have vast reserves of spiritual power flowing through you.

So does this mean you can jump off a building and fly? The best answer to that, in my opinion would be found in an old episode of Star Trek: The Original Series. The bridge officers were trapped on yet another alien world and they were facing off against re-creations of the Clanton gang at the OK corral. Spock realized that everything was all some sort of illusion, but real enough that believing in it even in the slightest would mean it could kill you. When he used the Vulcan Mind Meld to completely remove any doubts that the experience was an illusion, the crew was immune to the gunfire.

What I meant by that anecdote is that it may very well be possible to fly IF we could go through and put all those factors mentioned in the last post into absolutely flawless alignment and eliminate even the slightest doubt that we could. That’s a herculean task. Even the best hypnotist or worst drug trip is going to leave some part of your mind with rational doubt. It would take achieving a Buddha’s level of mental development.

Now if even that possibility sounds at all far fetched… Consider that until 1954, the four minute mile was considered an unbreakable barrier. It was common medical belief that a person’s heart couldn’t even take the strain of running that fast that far. After that barrier was finally broken, it quickly became routine. The current world record is down to 3 minutes and 43 seconds (and change). So much of what we do is limited by self doubt and societal scoffing. We may eventually get there (unaided flight) as a species, but it will likely be the far future.

Continuing that analogy, it’s far better in my opinion to use that principle of energy taking the path of least resistance and seeing what invention you can come up with to get the job done. Jet packs were thought to be impossible 10 years ago. We have prototypes making the news now. 😉 That’s the “some form or another” aspect of the quote above.

I guess what my sleep deprived mind is saying is to believe you’re capable of far more than you think, and don’t be afraid to reach for more, or manifest big dreams. Just also remember the last principle of Huna: Effectiveness is the Measure of Truth. More there later, but for the sake of this discussion it means take anything a step at a time, prove to yourself you can do that much and then proceed a bit further.

That’s the manifestation and spiritual end of things. From a living and psychology point, no limits means accepting that life can be as good as you want it. Faith and a positive attitude (supported by the other Huna principles) will help make it so.

Huna Principles, Pt 1

Or number 2, since I already did “Energy Flows Where Attention Goes”

Either way, I promised (sort of) to cover the other six core principles of Hawaiian Huna. The first one is:

The World Is What You Think It Is

Right away, I’m going to eliminate the elephant in the room; those of you familiar with the Law of Attraction are going to notice these seven principles sound alot like LOA teachings. I prefer to think of it as similar but more clearly explained. It’s more than mind tricks for manifesting material goodies though. Read and reasoned through carefully, it’s a philosophy for living life happily and in harmony with the universe.

OK, so let’s get back to “The World Is What You Think It Is”. To quote Serge Kahili King; “This is the cornerstone principle of Huna, and it means that you create your own personal experience of reality through your beliefs, expectations, attitudes, desires, fears, judgements, feelings, and consistent or persistent thoughts and actions. This principle also contains the idea that by changing your thinking you can change your world.”

This has been said in many different ways among many cultures. It’s EASY to gloss over and ignore. There are powerful truths here however. First, let’s look at all the things that can impact your reality:

Beliefs, expectations, attitudes, desires, fears, judgments, feelings and consistent or persistent thoughts

To put it concisely, there are several ways to trip yourself up. To truly get the life and manifestations you want, ALL those things need to be in alignment. As an easy example, it doesn’t matter how much you want and wish for a million dollars. If your beliefs are that life is stacked against you and that you’re actually unworthy of the money, or that money is evil, or rich people are evil, you’ll never get it.

Manifestation and just living a happy life is all about aligning your thoughts.

Something else that needs to be addressed here is the word “experience” that was used. Spiritual energy shares a few traits with physical energy. One of them is that energy takes the path of least resistance. Hence the world “experience” instead of “reality”. So if you spend all your time wanting the world to be the best place possible and truly think the best of people, that is what you’re going to see and notice out in the world. A pessimist, or somebody that believes in a specific cause, etc… is going to notice things that support their world view also. The world is what you think it is. This little tidbit is true enough to make the vast majority of people also tune out things contrary to their views.

SO, you really do create your own reality. The universe simply works smart and instead of using vast amounts of energy to rewrite reality to everyone’s individual whim, it simply helps them focus on the aspects of our shared reality that they want or expect to see.

That pretty much covers the last line also; “This principle also contains the idea that by changing your thinking you can change your world.” Like everything in Huna, this sentence has multiple levels of meaning. Changing your attitude will change your world view and emotional state. On a higher level, manipulation of spiritual energy requires a changing and unification or focus of thought patterns and beliefs.

The Biggest Trick to Survival as an Empath

A post here is LONG overdue.  That said, let me just get straight to things so I avoid rambling.

This is one of those things that’s soooo simple I’m afraid it will get overlooked and discounted, much like God telling the Isrealites to look at Moses’ staff to be healed in the wilderness.  I see empaths making this mistake over and over again though, even when they should know better.

So what is the “trick”?  Do NOT be a slave to your feelings.  I know this runs contrary to popular culture, and much teaching (or talk at least) about empathic ability.  Feelings are sacred!  Feelings are power to shape the universe!  I understand getting caught up in that mess too.  I’ve had friends literally half a world away that I could sense everything going on in their lives.

Feelings are irrational and can lead you down dangerous paths sometimes.  The classic, hell stereotypical example of falling in love with a physically and emotionally abusive bad boy (or girl), for example.  Your heart can lead you astray when dealing with con artists and “players” also.  Then there’s just getting sucked into other peoples’ hate also.  Those kind of people feed on the negative energy you send them.

If you learn to pay attention to feelings without worshiping them…  Use your intellect to explore if they’re yours, somebody else’s or even rational, you can do ALOT to take back control of your emotional well being as well as your mental and physical health.

The alternative is becoming a person who is always consumed by sadness and drama, and attracting even more of it to you.  Remember, Energy Flows Where Attention Goes.  Optionally, you could get angry, bitter and withdraw from much of life.  That’s an even bigger hell for an empath.  No matter how much we think we’re introverts, we need other people around us.

Sadly, most empaths are so dependent upon their empathy as a radar and interpersonal communication guide, they don’t even realize that you can shield yourself from emotional energy just like any other form of spiritual energy.  You may have to cut spiritual attachment “cords” though to be truly effective.

One trick here that I’ve only recently figured out (there’s ALWAYS room to learn and grow) is to use a bubble shield and then “feel” the emotions hitting the shield without letting them through.  It’s been a godsend technique for me.

A Lesson From Hawaiian Huna

I had another article that I was going to do first, BUT I think this is important for laying the groundwork for the other post.  Heck, maybe I’ll cover more about Huna after this, as I’ve been fascinated by it for ages.  For those NOT in the know, Huna is a Hawaiian spiritual philosophy (not a religion).  There’s not a ton written about it.  That’s largely because it’s made up of 7 simple precepts.  However, the more you practice and think about them, the more you’ll realize how they connect and the deeper meanings and possibilities.

This isn’t the first precept, but it’s the one I’m going to talk about today.  Maybe I’ll do the others in future posts.  This one is a key concept for Empaths and anybody with spiritual gifts to grasp though:

Energy Flows Where Attention Goes

Odd but true story; I was reciting this one on my own (the exact wording) since I was 7 or 8 years old.  That was long before I’d heard of spirituality in any form beyond organized Christian religion.  Then again, I’ve been told I’m reincarnated from Mu (Lemuria); the mythical Polynesian ancestral home also.

If you think about it, nearly every school of spiritual teaching has SOME variation on this idea.  It’s a key principle in the Law of Attraction.  It’s a basic psychology concept too.  I think Huna puts it most concisely however.

So why is the concept important?  Because like energies attract.  That means you get more of what you focus on.  This is doubly dangerous for an empath.  Get caught up in negative emotions (usually not even your own), focus on them, and what you’re doing is drawing even more negative energy towards you (and into your system).  This is a common trap for emapths.  Its why so many of us stay miserable until some big event that’s charged with positive emotional energy shocks the empath out of their pattern.

The drivel nowadays that feelings are sacred and we should wallow in them endlessly only helps to deepen the trap.  Feelings are many things, but first and foremost they’re tools and meant to be balanced by the tool of intellect.

From any spiritual standpoint, never focus on the problem.  All you’ll do is feed it and make it bigger.  Acknowledge the problem, but put your focus on all the possible solutions.  You’ll draw positive energy to you and open the doors to a solution instead of perpetuating the problem.

As I mentioned earlier, this idea even carries over to psychology.  So whether you believe it’s a matter of spiritual energy or simple mindset, it holds true.

If you’re curious about the Law of Attraction aspect of this and why the LOA never seems to work for most poeople…  There’s a trick there also.  You don’t get what you want; you get what you believe you deserve.  That’s why egomaniacs and sociopaths always seem to to so well in life until karma catches up with them.  What you believe you deserve is always where the majority of your energy will go though.

If you REALLY want to change your life; learn to think positive, believe in your self worth (without becoming a narcissist) and remember that Energy Flows Where Attention Goes.

A Few Tricks

It’s been about a week since I posted anything here.  Mainly because I’ve been feeling a bit lost for lack of a better term.  It feels like a dark night of the soul is trying to take hold but ain’t quite making it.  I’ve been too tempted to write complaining posts that wouldn’t be productive.

Keeping in mind that I need to write SOMETHING here though…  Here’s a few theoretical how-tos.  Note the theoretical also.  I’ve never gotten either to really work.

 

First is the easier one: Telekinesis.  I’ve had only the barest hint of success here, making a towel on a rack move just slightly, etc…  The trick here is not to move the object.  The idea is the sense the object’s energy or aura and to move that.  The object HAS to stay with it’s aura.  It’s kind of like the old judo maxim of where the head goes the body has to follow.  This is also why Yoda said the size of an object being moved didn’t matter (except as a mental block).  The trickiest part for some will be the sensing of an inanimate object’s energy

 

The second is the holy grail of spiritual gifts for some; Teleportation.  NO luck here, not even the slightest.  The supposed trick is to mentally move part of YOUR energy somewhere else and anchor it there, then let go of the remainder of your energy’s anchor where you’re at.  Theoretically you and your energy poof to the location where you put the other part of your energy.

Again, sounds possible in theory since it’s similar in idea to how quantum entanglement works.  If it is at all, I’d say it takes a solid ability to sense spiritual energy on that quantum level.

 

Anyway, not saying it’ll work for anybody, BUT there yah go.  🙂

False Compassion + An Update

Back among the living after a draining day yesterday with my step-father’s funeral.  He was ultimately a positive anchor for the family (mainly my mom) so I’m not looking forward to where things MAY go from here with him gone.  I get back to my blog and email after a day and a half, and I had 114 email notifications to go through.  Fun times. LOL.  Three hours later I’m done.

One post in particular that I read inspired today’s post here.  It was about how Walls Don’t Work.  Political commentary, but there’s a larger issue here, especially for empaths.

Walls & boundaries DO work.  Not perfectly.  NOTHING created by humans ever will work perfectly.  If there are no boundaries of any sort, people will walk all over you, so YES it’s OK to say NO.

BTW, the book “Boundaries” by Dr Henry Cloud is GREAT reading on how to set reasonable boundaries.

So how does false compassion tie into both personal boundaries and physical walls?  First we have to define it.  False compassion is an idea or action that FEELS good but does nothing to fix a problem or only makes it worse.  The easiest example is the stereotypical “Give a drunk a drink”.  They may feel better short term, but you’ve only prolonged their suffering.

Let’s go with another example here in my home town.  It’s a good one because it also illustrates how false compassion can negatively impact others as well.  We have a huge homeless population problem here.  Part of that problem is that they go through neighborhoods on trash pickup nights, ransack cans and dump trash all over the place.  There have been some ugly fights about the issue on a certain community based website network that I wont give publicity to also.  The false compassion crowd says people have no right to complain because home owners have more.  They virtue signal about how they give money to these homeless people also and how wonderful they are for doing it.

Point out that you’re doing nothing to change the situation for the homeless, that you’d be better off giving that money to shelters that help them get off the street, and you’re attacked as a selfish nazi.

The point here is that false compassion is a form of manipulation and emotional blackmail.  It guilts people wrongly into doing things, and often with the only benefit being it keeps the guilter from doing anything meaningful about the situation themself.

Let’s look at the border wall example.  First let me say I believe we need immigration reform along with the wall.  I’ve seen first hand that there ARE jobs Americans won’t do (A major sign of a dying civilization BTW), and good people deserve a shot at the American Dream also.

BUT…  If you boil the Wall issue down to a personal level, what you have is your neighbor saying that you have a bigger house and more things than they do.  Because of that, your neighbor’s family is ENTITLED to come in and take what they want, make use of the house any way they see fit, etc…  If you say anything about it, even objecting to ONE member of the family being a felon, then you’re a racist, nationalist, nazi, etc…

If you doubt that’s the mentality, remember the news footage of the caravan members throwing rocks and trying to rush the border to get past the Border Patrol there.

Again, I’m not heartless.  I believe we should help who we can, individually and as a country.  There’s a BIG difference between your neighbor asking for help dealing with a problem and demanding you fix it for them.

So yes, a wall is only a proper boundary.  It’s designed to help us control who comes into our country, just like a front door is designed to let you control who comes into your house.  Neither are a perfect defense.  Again, no such thing.  That front door can be kicked in, BUT it’s a strong start, isn’t it?

The VAST majority of people from Central and South America are honest, very hard working people.  They deserve a chance to come here temporarily to work or to try to become citizens.  We also have a right and a moral obligation to the public to make a real effort to keep the drugs, gang members and human traffickers OUT however.

And again, the lesson spills back over to surviving as an empath also.  You have a right to establish boundaries, not be used by people, and maintain control of YOUR life.  There are people you want to let into your life, and some you want to exclude.  That’s fine, and don’t let anybody guilt trip and manipulate you into believing otherwise.  Often, it’s just an excuse to become an emotional drain on you.

An Important Update

I squeezed in another page today, as so many people seem to be struggling with letting go of drama, or having self-doubt hold them back.  I needed to remind myself about the exercise described in this post also.

So what does this exercise do and who does it benefit?  It’s for people who feel really beat down by an issue.  If you’re the type who watches these Navy SEAL-esque “Just Do It” videos that so many gurus seem to be putting out, and only get annoyed by them and feel you can’t do it, this might be for you.  The trouble with those rah-rah videos and blog posts is that they don’t take into account that you have to see the possibility of success for them to be motivated.

If you’ve been so beat down for years by a problem that you can’t see that possibility…  That defeat is actually ingrained in your system, this can help.  The only other option I’ve seen work is when a person hits rock bottom and gets sick and tired of being sick and tired.  Really though, who wants to go THAT route?

The principle behind the exercise is that issues so big have a dual nature.  There’s the energy or emotional component and the mental processes (memories and thought patterns) as well.  The mental processes are what most self improvement and psychology focus on.  What they miss is that the spiritual and emotional energy can and do act as an anchor to keep those memories and beliefs stuck in your head.

Cut out the energetic component and the thought patterns lose their reinforcement.  THEN, you actually CAN just do it.

Here’s the exercise:

Advanced Clearing Exercise

Triple Goose Egg…

Just a little bit of grumbling here…

Three days with zero views.  That despite the fact I added 11 pages to the blog,split between 2 directory tabs that count as pages.

I guess people aren’t that interested after all…  I’m going to give it a few more days before I decide about shutting this down.

Finally Something Useful

As promised in my last post, I’ve added some general information about spiritual energy to the blog, and a few psychic self defense basics also.

The articles are on pages in the main menu above, and each ‘article’ is meant to be read in order.  As always, this is simply what’s worked for me, and my personal opinion.  If something different has worked for you, great.
