Descended from a lineage of Orthodox priests, and deeply connected to the spiritual realms from a young age, Daniel Mitel’s path was always going to lead him to helping people understand their intimate connection to Creation.  His service to humanity as a light worker sees him travel around the world, but here, in a moment of stillness he shares with us the importance of creating from the Heart and how the Awakening the Illuminated Heart and Heart Imagery workshops he teaches can help us do just that.

Hi Daniel, Can you explain who you are, and what it is that you do as an Awakening the Illuminated Heart teacher of the School of Remembering?

Hi and blessings to all readers and light workers everywhere. I am a light worker in service for humanity. As an Awakening the Illuminated Heart (ATIH) teacher of the School of Remembering, I teach people to move their spirit into the Heart and stay there as long as possible.

What path led you to discover Drunvalo Melchizedek and the School of Remembering?

When I was just 3 years old, I would stay for hours in the lotus flower posture.My mum didn’t know what to say to people visiting us; she just smiled and told them it was a good posture for the spine (which is true) and I wanted a healthy spine (that’s true too).  In 1981 I started teaching Zen Meditation and practicing Tai Chi. In the mid 90’s I spent four years in Tibet working with two Lama Masters. I went back to the Western part of the world teaching Tibetan Meditations and Heart Imagery. Through this, I met and worked with Masters such as Osho and the Dalai Lama, from different schools of meditation who train their students to be in the Heart. I discovered that worldwide all Masters teach that we have to work our soul; we have to be in the Sacred Space of our Heart in order to consciously create something in our lives.

After reading ‘The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life’, by Drunvalo, I understood that he was connected to Melchizedek Consciousness and I felt that his teachings are very important for humanity, so I went to all of his Earth and Sky workshops. Then when Drunvalo founded School of Remembering and invited me to join it, I felt it was time for me to teach ATIH. Drunvalo appointed me in the First Council of School of Remembering together with four other teachers: Conchita and Gaby from Mexico, Ron from Canada and Vicki from Australia.

What are the main goals of the ATIH workshop? What is it that attendees are hoping to achieve and how do they benefit from attending?

The main goals of the ATIH workshop is to help you remember who you really are, and to understand the Creation process and your role in it. The benefits of the workshop are:

  • Learning to create from the Heart (not from the brain where there is always a negative effect)
  • Activating the Human Light Body (or Mer-Ka-Ba) and programming the Mer-Ka-Ba to protect the human body against negative energies
  • Opening the third eye in a meditation given by Ascended Masters
  • Learning to move your spirit into your Heart and create a NEW SELF: healthy, happy, unlimited, and free of any preconceived ideas and belief patterns.
  • Making the first steps in the Ascension process
  • Getting rid of your FEARS, and keeping your spirit in the Sacred Space of Your Heart
  • Connecting with Mother Earth and being grounded with Her Energy inside of You

You mention the Mer-Ka-Ba, how is this light body activated, and what does its activation mean for the person who has undertaking the process?

The word Mer-Ka-Ba, or the human body light body comes from the ancient Egyptian times. It is actually three words; ‘Mer’ meaning a counter-rotating field of light, ‘Ka’ meaning spirit, and ‘Ba’ meaning body. If a spirit doesn’t have a body, they still have a Mer-Ka-Ba. It is their body of knowledge and wisdom, and contains their memories.

Most people on Earth have lost their Mer-Ka-Bas, but it is still around them in the form of a seed which just needs to be activated. Activation of Mer-Ka-Ba is done during a short 20 minute meditation on the last day of the ATIH workshop, after the students learn to connect the heart with the brain.

The human light body protects you from various energies that might affect your mental, emotional and physical bodies: solar flares, radiation, pollution, geomagnetic lines and magnetic fields of the earth. Drunvalo is the first person in the modern world to mathematically and geometrically define the human light body.

You say that the workshop can be the first steps in the Ascension process. Can you explain exactly what you mean when you talk about ascension?

A lot of people think that ascension is a personal decision but it is not. Mother Earth decides if we are ready for ascension. Ascension comes when the energy of the Father Sun transmuted by the Mother Earth triggers substantial changes in our human DNA that modifies our cells’ vibration helping us to move from the third dimension (where we are now) to the fourth dimension.

The concept of different dimensions and travelling between them is one that many people have difficulty getting their heads around. What is the proof of this concept, and how would you explain it to someone who didn’t understand or believe in it?

Well there is plenty of scientific proof of parallel or different dimensions. Let’s just remember Brian Greene’s famous movie ‘The Elegant Universe’ where Nobel Prize winning physicists discuss and demonstrate the theory. All the Great Masters and ancient civilizations talk about it: the Mayans, the Tibetans, The Yogi Great Masters, the Egyptians, the Sumerians, the Vedic and so on.

But the real proof of this concept is INSIDE of us. Anybody who meditates can see, sense, feel and know that there is something there. That there is more there than just going to work each morning, making money to buy a house or a car, shopping, sleeping and eating. If we think that this is our purpose on this Universe, we are making a mistake. Sooner or later, our Higher Selves will give us lessons that will lead us back to unconditional love and harmony.

So an integral part of the ATIH workshop is teaching people to be in the heart. Is it possible for everyone to go into the heart or do you ever witness people who are unable to achieve this goal and if so why is that?

Any human being can go into the heart. All of us have a Sacred Space of The Heart and a Tiny Space of The Heart, the place where the Universe was created, the place where we can approach Divinity. There are people unable to achieve this goal because of emotional trauma or mental belief patterns. But this is temporary. Anybody can clean the mental and emotional body and move into the heart.

Why does emotional trauma stop us from going into our heart and how does the workshop help us to clear this emotional trauma?

Indeed, emotional traumas are the biggest problem. If we have trauma such as a divorce or the death of a loved one, when we try to enter the heart we feel pain, and this stops us.  The only answer is to release this pain, which is what we do on the Healing Day of the workshop.

What ways can people heal their own emotional trauma by themselves?

Through meditation and forgiveness. But it is not easy. Sometimes we spend years and years clinging onto things that happened long ago. If we don’t release it, it is very difficult to enter into the Heart. We must forgive ourselves and forgive others.

I also help people to release their emotional traumas through the Heart Imagery workshop. The first and second seminars Cleaning the Past and Self-Renewal, and Healing and Emotional Clarity really help people to heal and clean their traumas.

What are the disadvantages of living in or creating from the brain as opposed to from the Heart?

The brain is polarized; it has two parts – the left side and the right side.  Because of this, anything that you create from the brain will also be polarized. What this means is that if you create something that will manifest into the outer Reality, this brain method will give you what you want, but it will also give you exactly what you don’t want. The Heart is a unified field with no polarization. When we are dreaming from the Heart, the dreams are always good, filled with love and harmony, peace and beauty.

How can we teach our brains and our hearts to connect and work together for our highest good?

As part of the ATIH workshop, I teach students how to activate the third eye, then to connect the heart with an awakening brain. An awakening brain means that the third eye is activated. Other methods to connect the heart and the brain include Heart Imagery workshops, Kriya Yoga, Tibetan Meditations, Tai Chi and QI Gong.

Despite being taught the importance of being in the heart, it can be hard to consciously stay there, especially in times of conflict when we quickly become defensive, and act from our ego or our mind rather than our heart. How can we learn to control this and stay in our hearts?

Indeed living in a world of polarities makes it hard for us to stay into the heart. I do teach some techniques in Meditation Day and Heart Imagery workshops regarding the moving the spirit and consciousness back into the heart. The most important step is to be able to realize when you are in the Brain versus being into the Heart. The Brain has a specific vibration. After being in the heart and feeling the heart’s vibration it is difficult to go back, and live into the brain. The brain is so male, so logical and the heart is so female, so intuitive.

IMG_5778

Being a teacher of the ATIH workshop must have personal benefits for you as well. How do you feel you are benefitting on your own journey through teaching this workshop?

When I teach, I am also a student of Higher Consciousness Masters. This is the best personal benefit. I teach and I learn. Each workshop is a new learning point, a new spiritual experience and a new journey into the Infinite Spirit. I am blessed to connect with my Higher Self and Ascended Masters. I am blessed to travel all over the world and teach people to stay in the heart. I am blessed to understand that life is beautiful; life is just a dream, a beautiful dream. We are all here to experience this beautiful dream!

A Spiritual Perspective On Smoking Cannabis: An Important Viewpoint To Consider

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In the video below, Sadhguru shares his perspective on smoking marijuana and why it's not truly needed to achieve the feeling one may receive to do it.

  • Reflect On:

    I'm not saying there isn't medicinal value and that we should outlaw this plant, I'm saying we have a very large societal challenge, just like with alcohol, where we are not facing our inner challenges and are using substances to cover them up.

I was having a conversation yesterday about something that has always been a reflection point for me. Since I was a kid, I was never drawn to substances, even alcohol. I always felt great, high even, when just being.

As I got older and I finally tried cannabis for the first time, and then a few more times after that as years went on, I started to realize it actually brought my state of being and clarity down. The tough part was trying to explain that to others when having conversations about how these substances don’t produce a true experience of higher consciousness, but more so give you a glimpse in a sense.

Before we go on, I want to bring something up. The challenge with this topic is that we tend to get very emotional and rigid about it. Not only that, but we aggressively try to lump people into FOR or AGAINST cannabis. I’m not here to do that. I’m simply creating a reflection point as my desire is to help shift consciousness and empower us within to create a world where we can truly thrive. So for a moment, set aside your own hard coded beliefs and just be open to what this article is shining light on.

Societal Cannabis Culture

For the most part society either breaks down into people who judge cannabis as a drug that is for ‘stoners’ and are very against it. These people tend to believe there are no positives to cannabis. On the flip side are the people who feel cannabis is an amazing wonder plant that can do no wrong, and that the “highs” it provides expand the mind and we experience peace.

The truth is, cannabis has good aspects and not so good aspects to it. And while the positives can be really helpful for a very small subset of people on this planet, smoking it is one of the worst ways to use cannabis health wise. Not only that, society is using its medical benefits to turn attention away from the addiction many users have to it. This is a tough pill to swallow and makes many people aggressive and angry when I bring it up, but it’s true. In a big way, but not all the time, we are using cannabis as a society to help cope with feelings deep down that we want to shut off or hide from. As a note, we are also using food, TV and other things in the same way, but right now I want to focus on this reflection.

Cannabis can assist people with autism, people who have seizures, and in some cases it may have helped people cure cancer. There are benefits that can come from this plant being used in a proper medicinal way, but we must remember to look at the downsides that come from regular cannabis use that many simply don’t want to acknowledge.

A Note On Legalization

First off, I do not believe the plant ever needed to be illegal to begin with. In fact I’ve done much research on how it became illegal and it really had more to do with protecting an industry more than anything else.

That said, there is something to consider here that many of us aren’t looking at too clearly when it comes to what legalization really means. It means that powerful people are going to be the ones who profit most from it, that’s why it’s becoming legal. Not only that, but the reason it is taking so long is so they can get in place the many aspects required to make sure they achieve what they want: stripping medicinal aspects out of the plant profiles, controlling the seeds, and ultimately feeding society cannabis focused solely on creating a THC based ‘high’. This is no different than controlling alcohol and feeding it to society in the ways we currently do.

The cannabis industry is worth over $40 billion, making it the second-most-valuable crop in the U.S. after corn. As stated in a powerful article by GQ, “And even though weed is still federally forbidden, it sounded like whoever was behind BioTech Institute had spent the past several years surreptitiously maneuvering to grab every marijuana farmer, vendor, and scientist in the country by the balls, so that once the drug became legal, all they’d have to do to collect payment is squeeze.”

Humans should be able to make choices as to what they want to do to themselves and their bodies i.e. smoke cannabis or consume alcohol, but I believe greater education needs to be placed behind both and ultimately: we must start looking at the real reasons as to why we use both of these substances so often.

Looking At Cannabis Differently

I see that in many ways the use of cannabis is making the average user numb, in the same way alcohol does. I’ve used cannabis before, in a number of ways -smoking, edibles etc. I’m not saying the feeling is the same for every single user, but I’ve also been around thousands of cannabis users in my lifetime while they were high and you notice the same ‘vibe’ virtually every time. Perhaps there are varying degrees, but for the most part it numbs us out and sometimes quiets the thoughts to create a calmness. Is this like meditation? No, but it can be confused as that. I know, I’ve been there too.

Below is a video of a perspective on cannabis I feel is very important for us to consider. Let me be clear, I’m not saying there isn’t medicinal value and that we should outlaw this plant, I’m saying we have a very large societal challenge, just like with alcohol, where we are not facing our inner challenges and are using substances to cover them up. I am inspired to help create a world where we can truly empower ourselves form within, move beyond our mind and egoic challenges that help us grow and do just that – grow. But if we continually bury our challenges in substance, we won’t.

I believe it’s time we come to the uncomfortable truth and face the fact that as a society we have not done the greatest job in encouraging one another to truly explore, express and move beyond many of the emotional challenges life’s experiences have provided us, that are there for our growth. Think about it, do we want to just cope through life? Or do we want to truly move beyond our stuff? There is SO much suffering we can prevent by making it a societal norm to work through our challenges on a deep level. This is where I believe we must go.

Note: You can try meditation to help calm the mind and move more clearly through challenges. Here are more tools as well.

Lost relationships, divorces, losing jobs, feeling unloved, lack of confidence, depression etc. All of these things are not here so that we can use bandaids everyday to cover them up and get through them, they are here for us to learn more about ourselves, grow and evolve as people and as a society. To create a world where we can truly thrive. To get there, we must begin to face our challenges.

I made this choice 10 years ago when I started to discover meditation and inner reflection, and although I wasn’t a user of substances like alcohol or cannabis, I would use food to cover up my emotions or I would distract myself with TV, whatever worked. But I can share from experience, the incredible changes that come from shifting those stories within and gaining true empowerment will change everything in your life, and everyone can do it.

New Moon In Virgo: Efficiency & Practicality

Published

on

We are having a New Moon in Virgo on September 17th. This is initiating a 29.5 day lunar cycle and new wave of energy for the coming month; however, the astrological configurations mentioned in this article will be more prominent over the following two weeks. This cycle will include a Full Moon in Aries on October 1st/2nd.

Virgo season began on August 22nd/23rd, nearly a month prior to this Lunation, and will end on September 22nd/23rd when Libra season begins. However, his New Moon will still carry some of its Virgo themes into the first eight days of Libra season prior to the Full Moon.

This is a good period of working with and co-creating with the energies of this sign. Virgo is associated with productivity, duties, service, health, cleanliness, and purity. It is organized, adaptable, conscientious, skillful, orderly, punctual, diligent, efficient, analytical, detailed, discerning, precise, and practical.

Virgo is about problem solving, adjusting to changing conditions, and coming up with solutions. Negatively, this energy can be cynical, fussy, high strung, and perfectionistic. It can also be exorbitantly mentally oriented as well as overly critical and discriminating.

Mars began its retrograde a week prior to this New Moon which will last until mid-November. This energy is a significant part of the current astrological backdrop. Generally it is a time that can ultimately help to facilitate a change in how we apply ourselves in certain areas of life, however, the retrograde period itself can bring frustrations and challenges that help with that process. You can read more about this Mars Retrograde here.

New Moon Trine Saturn & Quincunx Mars Retrograde

This New Moon is in a tight trine with Saturn in Capricorn which is transitioning out of its retrograde at the end of the month. This can be a good period for operating in a responsible, cautious, orderly, productive, realistic and practical way. However, considering that Saturn is finishing up its backwards motion, these next couple of weeks are generally better for getting things sorted out and prepared as well as perhaps focusing on tasks that you have already been working on.

It is possible that in late September and in early October, we can experience some sort of shift, or change in gears, that can take things into a different direction. Saturn will be in a square with Mars Retrograde at that time, and we may have to contend with limitations and obstacles that can affect how certain things move forward.

This New Moon is also in a quincunx with Mars retrograde which can reflect annoyances, tension, or conflicts that may require adjustments and adaptability. Issues that come up may be at odds with our needs or the way we want to express ourselves. This energy is the strongest on the 19th/20th but can also be more noticeable on the day of the New Moon.

New Moon Square Lunar Nodes, Mercury Square Jupiter

This New Moon is also in a close square to the North Node in Gemini opposing the South Node in Sagittarius. We may be at odds between the past (South Node) and the future (North Node), beliefs (Sagittarius) and facts (Gemini), our immediate aspects of life (Gemini) and the world at large (Sagittarius).

However, the focal point should be the North Node in Gemini and expressions of the South Node in Sagittarius energy should be serving that focal point and not be the emphasis. The rulers of the Nodes, Mercury (Gemini) and Jupiter (Sagittarius) are also in a tight square with each other at the time of this New Moon. This can reflect tension between these two sides and potentially conflicts between ideas, viewpoints, and opinions.

Jupiter is in the limiting Saturnian sign of Capricorn while Mercury is better placed in Libra, the sign of diplomacy, seeking common ground, considering different needs/perspectives, and fairness. Mercury square Jupiter can be good for learning but it can also be excessive when it comes to information and we can more easily be mentally scattered.

Mercury Quincunx Neptune, Then Square Pluto, Saturn & Opposing Mars

Mercury is in a quincunx with Neptune which is strongest on the 18th/19th. This energy makes it harder to integrate or juggle our intuitive, creative, imaginative, compassionate or spiritual expression with our mind, communication, tasks, and thought process. Issues pertaining to lack of boundaries, flakiness, delusion, escapism, intoxication, may come up.

Mercury moves towards a square with Pluto which is strongest on the 20th/21st. Our thoughts and communications can be deep, powerful, penetrating, investigative, raw, real, and potentially intense. This can also reflect obsessive or compulsive behavior, suspicion, fears, anxiety, or conflicts pertaining to power or authority.

Mercury then moves to a square with Saturn (22nd/23rd) followed by an opposition to Mars retrograde (23rd/24th), creating a t-square formation in that time period with the separating Pluto energy (20th/21st, mentioned above) tied into it a bit. This can be a time of obstacles, delays, communication issues, pessimism, and conflicts while we can get more easily irritated or angered. Circumstances may come up that can be pushing us to be more cautious, realistic, or responsible.

This period is the beginning of Mercury’s pre-shadow period in which it will be returning to another square with Saturn. Some of the issues or developments that occur at this time may be connected to things that will play out during the retrograde (October 13th/14th until November 3rd/4th) and weeks surrounding that period. It will also be the Equinox and therefore this energy is imprinted into the following three months in which it can manifest in other ways/areas separate from this initial period.

Making Intentions & Things To Consider

What can you do to be more practical, productive, and efficient? Is there anything you can or should implement to improve your health and functionality? What have the circumstances, developments, or challenges over the last week (leading up to this New Moon) shown you in how you should be applying yourself? Do you need to implement stronger boundaries? Do you need to be more adaptable? Are you clinging to the past or are you willing to take steps to help you grow? What aspects or details of your immediate life, surroundings, or relationships do you need to focus on more and what excesses or broad aspects of your life are getting in the way of that?

These are just some examples of what to consider or focus your intentions on at this time. However, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you. It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. The exact moment it will occur is 11:00am Universal Time on September 17th. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Why We Get Into Fights When Sharing Information

Published

on

We’re in a time when mainstream media and traditional conversations are failing to address a number of important topics within society, anything from current events to politics and so on, and this is birthing a great deal of ‘alternative conversation’ that often stems from alternative media.

But with this, comes to the common ‘fight’ between various ideas and ideologies that is much more avoidable than we often realize. I wanted to share a quick tid bit from a recent episode discussing how we can reflect to develop better communication and connection faculties that can make a big difference in how we communicate important ideas that are emerging without creating such huge divides ad tension.
