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.

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!

On Taking Life Too Seriously

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Much of the time in life, we allow ourselves to take situations VERY seriously. This will sometimes turn pain into suffering, or prolong the challenges we face for growth. It also stops us from truly finding peace in life.

  • Reflect On:

    Do you feel a constant sense of anxiety in your life? Underlying everything? Where do you notice you take life or situations too seriously? What do you do to begin connecting back to self, and taking life less seriously?

Do you go through life with constant angst? A feeling deep down that there is always a little bit of stress or a little bit of worry? I’ve been through this. And in some ways, I thought it would never go away. But I focused on self awareness and living in the heart enough to kiss those days goodbye.

We can sure take life too seriously at times can’t we? I mean it’s fair. We have stresses in life that we get caught up in, we go, go, go, go, and often forget to take a moment to breathe. In Western culture, it’s all about obsessing over goals and getting there and telling ourselves sotries about what life will be like when we do finally get there… but what often happens to us when we live this way? We step into unconsciousness. We stop taking time to FEEL.

I want to help us remember to be STILL with this.

Various experiences and events have taken place in my life that have challenged some of my deepest ideals, belief systems and concepts that I felt were a part of me. This has gone on and occurred in my entire 11 year journey of truly changing myself. Whether it had to do with the work I do, friends, the world, relationships or big decisions in life, many things were challenged. It has truly been an incredible ride.

We sometimes might think “when will all the change and ‘chaos’ end?” A good question indeed, but isn’t this what we are here for at this time? To truly look at ourselves, look at all that we hold onto and all that we define our reality with. Literally everything! If you are feeling like you are the only one out there going through this stuff and feel like everything is backwards -that things are constantly being challenged, know that what you are experiencing is perfect, and we must remember to have fun with it!

Not Just A Human Experience

We are not here at this time to simply have ‘a human experience,’ we are here to evolve the human experience. It’s different! Stop looking at the past to tell us what to do, how we should move forward, and what ‘the greats’ did in our past to figure things out. We are not in that time, and the zeitgeist of our time now is not to simply exist but to be present as we deeply evolve the way of life on this planet.

We hear a lot “but we’re human, just embrace that!” That’s all fine, but what does that mean? What is a human? How should we be? Does being human mean accepting the world as it is? Are we capable of more? Can we redefine what it means to be human and what life should look like? Why do we give up so easily on dreaming big about these things?

I used to accept MANY limitations about myself and what I could do. But eventually, I was faced with the chance to let all that go, and reimagine what was possible. Even when everyone told me I was crazy and I couldn’t do what I was trying to do, I used my connection to self and consciousness to create it. Because I believed I was capable of more, and so is everyone else. This is how Collective Evolution, the site your on, came to be.

Embracing Change

After experiencing the many deep questions and challenges I have thus far, overcoming them and moving forward, I have one very special thing that I have reminded myself about over and over and truly understand to a deep level. We are here to play and evolve! None of what we are experiencing is as serious as we think!!

The mind and ego can make things very real, very dramatic, very frightening. I know! But the highest aspect of who we are is always clear, always neutral, and always sharing with us exactly what we need to hear because IT IS US! We are not the mind or the stories it creates that makes things so serious. They are there because that is our challenge. To go beyond the mind and the stories it creates -so we can experience this sensorial world and remember who we truly are (click to listen to my podcast on this topic.)

So let’s remember, whether it’s life choices, relationships, friends, work, family, sports, or everyday events, know that it’s just an experience! We can spend our whole lives always caught up in the drama and the intensity, saying “oh my gosh things are so tough, the world is so crazy, my life is upside down, and I’m so busy!” but where does this lead us? This is a question we must ask ourselves.

If we remain caught up in these perceptions, repetitive patterns of mind, we will continue to miss out on the entire journey we are on because we are lost and caught up in the mind. We perpetuate our so called “suffering” when we make things serious and make them a big deal. When we can see it for what it is, we allow the emotions to subside, allow back in our full potential and know how to take action forward. This is called finding true peace.

I’m not talking about simply accepting things and saying “well get over it” or “that’s how it is, so deal with it.” No. I’m talking about truly seeing things for what they are. Seeing why we color something in a particular way. Seeing the belief system behind why something is good or bad or right or wrong or even why it’s serious!

I promise you, behind every strong emotion, every serious situation, there is a belief system that makes it that way. One that is held in the mind and made real by the mind. But the mind is not YOU! See the story! Let it go and just play! You will find much peace and joy in flowing through your experience in this way.

Have You Realized The Profundity Of Our True Nature?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In life, we typically move about, seeing all material for what we define it as. This makes things convenient in a way, but there is a profoundness to not only seeing beyond these definitions, but also tapping back into full potential.

  • Reflect On:

    Have you ever tried practicing the awareness that you are not your mind nor your body? Why do we identify so strongly with just our physical body, and is it time to begin to remember we are much more than that?

Who we really are has been staring us in the face the whole time.

Take a look at your body, but look at it from a completely impersonal perspective; free of any thought about it at all. Without labels like arms and legs; without any sense of ownership, just as it is. Look in the mirror at your face, your eyes, but look without the thinking mind. This body that you get to use and throw around the joint, is a product of the universe. Conditions were apparently perfect here on Earth for Humans to exist. A magnificent sculpture, carved from stardust, gases, cells, minerals, heat – one of the most complex arrangements of cells and energy you have ever laid your eyes upon.

There is no boundary to the human body; there is no “in here” and “out there.” The body is a constant flow of energy, never a stationary or permanent thing we could pin down. There is a constant flow of air coming in and out, molecules by our skin, bacteria breaking down food in our stomach, there is no boundary between the body and the environment. It’s like a river, never the same body of water in any two moments.

Then, how about all the stuff the body perceives. All the sounds, tastes, smells, visual images and so on. The human body makes the whole world we’re privy to. The brain selects a very narrow band of frequencies and constructs reality according to the bandwidth of what our senses relay for us. The visual spectrum is only a very narrow band, while other sentient beings select out different bands for their viewing pleasure. So reality as we know it, never exists objectively, only subjectively through the being that is observing it. Without an observer what does it exist as? Just a soup of frequencies I suppose.

I find this phenomenal! There are little reality bubbles existing wherever a sentient being is alive. Energy has coalesced into the form of a human being, a giraffe, an ant, a butterfly, a chameleon, an amoeba, and through these configurations, the universe is observing itself. It is having experiences with itself.

1619136_420984308034739_245289130_nSo essentially, the whole world that you exist in – the reality bubble that you spend your entire life in – is entirely made by the human body. Your human body. Everything, all of it. Look at the image your eyes are creating. Look at how immaculate, perfect and impeccably high the resolution is! Check out how infinite the colour palette is. Take another look in the mirror at the wonder of your eyes. Those things stuck in that head, those things that we call eyes are absolutely wondrous biological organs, composed of trillions of living cells; living in harmony, being fed by the fuel you place in your mouth. Those things are taking frequencies of energy, sending it at light speed to your brain, where trillions more cells convert it into a picture. WOW!

And while I’m on that subject: have you ever wondered how electrical signals in the brain – how realistically an infinite amount of neurons in our brain – can create the conscious experience of sound out of electrical impulses? How does something biological turn electricity into the conscious experience of smell? Into the emotion of love, of anger?

So look around you. Look what you’re part of. You’re on a planet zooming through space at hundreds of kilometres per second, circling around in a gigantic galaxy. You’re amongst animals, forests, bodies of water, lightning, rain, drought, plants and soil. You’re amongst life! You’re seeing it unfold right before your eyes, seeing life in all its animation. I don’t see why it should seem like there’s anything else to do, other than admire what we’re amongst, and create.

Just as the bus motors down the street, so too does the galaxy arms revolve around its core. A child eats breakfast, while an asteroid erupts as it passes through an atmosphere. We are as much an expression of this universe as the plants and galaxies. This universe has arranged itself in such complex ways, in such exquisite patterns, so that it may know itself through our eyes. We have become an aperture for energy to know what it inherently is.

When we look deeper into our own nature, we find that things are even more extraordinary than what exists in the physical realm of bodies, animals, plants and stars.

There is this notion of separation in our society, where we exist separately from the outside world of other stuff. We are separate from the table, our house, other people and the whole cosmos. We feel this too, because we feel that we are the human body, or the thinker somewhere in the head. But this notion is learnt, cultivated, but not all cultures prescribe to this way of being at all.

The whole world is consciousness; it all exists within, not out there somewhere. This is the worldview slowly being ushered in by quantum mechanics and eastern traditions. They’ve arrived now at the same point, but there is obvious resistance because the old system composed of survival-of-the-fittest, authority, institutions and competition rely on our illusory separateness for vitality.

Consciousness is the way in which biological functions of firing neurons in the brain are turned into a conscious experience. Consciousness is something transcendent of the physical world, and is therefore never affected by the  realm of form. It is so perfect and complete already, not needing fulfillment or healing in any way.

The thing is, most of us don’t feel this way though. We still feel separate, small, incomplete and not an integrated part of the whole. We still feel like we are locked up inside a head looking out at separate stuff. But there are ways in which consciousness can shift and identify with something much deeper. The first step is usually quieting the mind through meditation. Our thoughts have run rampant, and we’ve taken this incessant internal monologue to be who we are. But if you do one session of meditation, you’ll see that the mind comes in all by itself, starts up fantasies, conversations, judgments and memories all by itself, while you are trying to focus on your breath. While you’re trying to be silent, the mind has other ideas. Meditation shows us we aren’t the thinker at all; it shows us that we are the witnessing presence OF thought.

A thought is as much a sensation as the taste of ice cream is; we’ve just placed too much emphasis and belief in thought. So rather than identifying consciousness with something superimposed upon it (the mind, the “small self”, the ego) we can shine the light back in on itself via techniques like meditation, and identify as pure consciousness itself. We become not only the witnesser of all sensation, but we merge with it, just as we did with the mind. The feeling of self shifts from the mind with all its thoughts and ideas about the world, to sensation. And sensation is essentially the universe! You become the whole universe.

When Is The Last Time You Were GENUINELY Yourself? If You’re Still Thinking About It, Read This.

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Some of us go our entire lives without truly being ourselves. There may be many reasons for it, but we often find ourselves living via others' expectations or approval.

  • Reflect On:

    When was the last time you noticed yourself hold back or be different than YOU because you were worried about what someone may think or do? Worried about challenging someone? Perhaps just appeasing people's egos?

Being 100% authentic to who you are, and at peace with it. Living from the Heart. Feeling comfortable within yourself. At all times. With everyone. No matter what “people dynamics” you are exposed to.

Now that’s a tough one for an ego who needs the approval, love and acceptance of others. Inner-peace sure is conditional when we are afraid to have our mind and its beliefs challenged in one way or another. But instead of basing our actions and state of being according to the fears, worries and desires of our ego, what we should ask our heart instead is:

Is it really worth it to compromise our natural state for the sake of appeasing the ego of others? Is it worth it to step away from our natural state and rather buy into our own egoic beliefs and fears?

The truth is, when others are truly comfortable and at peace with themselves, they won’t need you to change who you are. And when you are truly comfortable and at peace within yourself, you don’t need others to change who they are. Only the ego does.

When you have reached a state of utmost clarity and inner-peace, the only thing that can really make sense… is to BE who you truly are!

So the bottom line is, when you are authentic and at peace within yourself, YES, there will always be egos challenged by you, yet there will always be souls INSPIRED by you. In both cases, it is as perfect as it can get 😉
