Gravity as a function of thought; and the expansion of consciousness.

I want to put into words some ideas that I have been playing with lately. In order to begin though I want to put out a few premises.

1. Thoughts are things. Thought waves can be measured.

2. Gravity has an effect on time and space.

“Einstein’s Relativity Affects Aging on Earth (Slightly)” (Atomic Clocks Show Gravity Slowing Time)

So we have heard that space and time are curved and bend around things like stars. The quote comes from the above article:

“Specifically, Einstein’s special theory of relativity predicts that time does not flow at a steady rate, and it can be affected by acceleration…(and) The equations of general relativity also predict that gravity similarly slows down, or dilates, time.”

I am going to take this in a whole new direction of course, but it’s me and that’s my job 🙂

I grew up reading about the speed of light, and that if we wanted to have space travel we would need to find faster than light travel. Lately it has occurred to me that the speed of thought is faster than the speed of light therefore I could see us finding some way (in the future) to use the influence of concentrated thought as a means of moving faster than light.

We do this now but we don’t think about it because we don’t perceive that we are moving our bodies, therefore it doesn’t feel like motion; but then if you had instantaneous travel there wouldn’t be a feeling of motion either.

Ever been on a motorcycle and it felt like you weren’t the one that was moving, but that you were stationary and everything else was moving past you? I have had that experience and it was surreal. It felt like being in the eye of a hurricane, it was so still where I was; even amidst the noise of the engine with everything whizzing past us. It was so much like meditation. I was completely surprised.

Well what if that was what was happening all the time?

What if we are actually moving all the time along other pathways in such a way as it only looks like the continuous flow of time and space, our lives etc? It’s an interesting thing to think about, the idea that there are multiple possible futures all happening concurrently and that by our decisions, our thoughts if you will, that we are actually traveling between them; it looks and feels like linear motion but in reality it is actually like pulling frames from dozens of simultaneous movies in front of us one frame at a time based on where we are energetically pointed. So that seen from “above” we are actually “moving” through experiences that we pull from this vast ever expanding array of potentiality.

This gets back to that idea of electrons i.e. “matter” being really made of probability clouds and that they collapse into position when we observe them. So we are actually collapsing our reality into a chain of experiences not because they are already set before us exactly, but because we pull the frames into being at the speed of thought.

We create space and time around us as we focus.

So back to the thoughts as things and gravity ideas.

Thoughts are things and these things actually have mass however tiny and as such thoughts create their own solar system. The gravity of a thought is the thing which creates what people call the law of attraction; and if enough thoughts come together and gather enough other thoughts together then it will eventually create enough mass and gravity to create physical matter that is dense enough to perceive with our physical senses. The more intensely focused and collected the thought energy the more pulling power this gravity has, and as the new thoughts join it then it has even more pulling power. This is consistent with how some teachers explain LOA.

So I think then that thoughts do have gravity, and if thoughts have gravity no matter how slight then they are able to effect time and space, just like something as large as the Sun does, although on a different scale.

So why do we care?

There is evidence that gravity (which should be a much greater force than it is given the mathematics behind it) is theorized to possibly cut across multiple dimensions, and that is why it has a relatively weak force in this dimension. Thoughts also cut across many dimensions, they are free to exist within and outside of regular time and space in the same way.

Let’s play with the idea of something like the Sun being made of highly focused and concentrated thought energy; which gives it its mass and its gravity and its ability to bend space. Then it would coincide with many different spiritual traditions which say that the manifest universe is the out picturing of the idea in the Mind of the Divine. Taking that a step further; if we are made (as some say) in the image and likeness of God then wouldn’t it make sense that that means less about the specifically physical shape of us but more of the thought shape of us?

And that as we are an individualization of that Source then we too are constantly creating our own solar systems and galaxies all the time, but the suns are our focused intentionality or decision; and the orbiting bodies are the experiences and gathering of energy around these same ideas.

Consciousness is indeed Cause.

OK so the Sun’s gravity holds the planets in orbit and the solar system together, the gravity of the spinning earth holds us onto the surface and the atmosphere around the earth and maintains life on this lovely green home of ours.

So with thoughts having gravity, and enough thoughts or more laser-like thoughts having stronger gravity, then concepts like condensing or bending time is not as far fetched as we might have imagined; and in fact I think we are doing constantly. I know in Theta healing the time frame that the healing is done in is not the same one as regular life happens in; much more can be accomplished when you are operating at a different wave length. It makes me think of how time is relative based on perspective; within a computer time, there are eons between my typing one word and the next, or even one letter and the next. It is shown again with the example of the Atomic clock used in that experiment…

“Atomic clocks work based on the number of vibrations an electrically charged atom experiences as it moves between two energy levels. For the clocks used in the experiments, one second is equal to more than a million billion vibrations”

which is why something like this time differential can even be measured. So time is completely relative based on perception. Change your perception and you change your experience of time, and as it seems to indication in the experiments, change your relationship to a source of gravity and it will also change (measurably) your visceral experience of time.

This is exciting! So what happens when we start to really tap into our awareness; refine it, concentrate it, get more intentional with it? We can see evidence of this all over the world, with “miraculous” healing taking place, and things like remote viewing happening, and clairvoyant reading and prayer, the call of intuition and the gathering of so many people across so many different cultures feeling the internal changes. All of these things are part of us waking up as a race; as consciousness becoming self-aware at a deeper level.

I believe that as we learn to do this that there is a coalescing of energy and information; which is the same thing as saying we increase our “pulling power” our “gravity” so to speak. That as we shift this and energize this internally and then collectively; each with our own uniquely specialized vibration operating within the larger structure, that we then shift the fabric of time and space. Perhaps that is another description of the awakening that is happening spiritually on a global level.

What if the Sun started out as an idea? What if the Sun was a collection of very densely packed and energized ideas? What if it was a representation in this reality of some amazing amount of gathered agreement of light energy/thought energy and this is how it shows up in this specific dimension. What if that which is at the core of a star or a planet which gives it its spin or its gravity, had more to do with some kind of consciousness; thought then being the creator of gravity, being synonymous with gravity. Whoa yes that is a very interesting direction. Gravity is a function of thought.

Harness that and you can find faster than light travel, ways to bend space and time, and so much more. Develop that as a global consciousness and the sky is no longer the limit.

What is really interesting though, is that we may already be doing just that; only difference is…we may be finally becoming conscious of it. That changes everything.

Aloha and Blessings,



Venus Retrograde October 8th 2010; By the Light of an old Flame.

"The Birth of Venus" by Botticelli 1485Here is yet another in my series of posts about astrology; and while this isn’t just an astrological blog, there have been so many interesting and powerful transits recently, I am just compelled to write about them; especially when people keep asking “what the heck is up??”.

So there are a few more things happening in the skies that are effecting us; Venus, Mars and then eventually Mercury once again. This will bring us to the end of the year.

I am not sure if I will talk much about the next Mercury retrograde period in this post since it’s a ways off, but just know that not too long after Venus goes back direct, Mercury will be set to go into retrograde in December so it’s been a “whole lotta retrogrades going on” this last few months.

So back to what I intended to write about!! Venus…

Venus is going…well I should say gone (by the time you read this) retrograde.

A little about retrograde.

All the planets show apparent retrograde motion at one time or another. I say apparent because they really don’t physically go backwards, it’s about how it looks to us.

They orbit the Sun as we do, and so when we observe them in the skies and chart their patterns during a year or two, we will see that they look like they are going forward for a time and then backwards for a time. Retrograde is when they move backwards from the point of view of the Earth (where we view them); therefore they go backwards through the astrological signs since we use the earth as the focal point of astrology. These movements are significant and have effects that can be felt and observed in our lives.

You might ask why in the world this would have any effect at all, since it is all an illusion. Good question! However there are as many answers to that  question as  there are people to answer it  🙂

My take on it is that “this” (meaning all of this loveliness we call the physical plane) is all actually an illusion in one manner or another (that screen you are viewing is really a whole lot of  points of light given instructions by a bunch of zeros and ones; and that chair you are sitting in is actually a bunch of  atoms and molecules made up of primarily empty space; at the outer edge of which are electron clouds whose position can only truly be called a “probability”) so I figure it’s all good and we can find usable truth in a lot of places. I personally find a lot in astrology, it’s a great language to talk about our collective consciousness and our larger energetic nature; it gives some good sign posts to watch pointing to tendencies and movement of energy so I am very happy working with it.

Ok back to planets…

Each planet has different aspects and qualities associated with them. Mercury retrograde gets a lot of air play because we are such a communications based society and so when Mercury (which is associated with communication among other things) goes into retrograde we can really feel it; plus it goes retrograde several times a year since it moves so fast in general (the winged messenger doncha know!).  Venus however moves much more slowly than our winged friend and so she only goes retrograde every 18 months or so, but when Venus is retrograde it lasts longer (about 6 weeks).

The planet Venus (Goddess of Love) is all about Love, romance, marriage and partnerships, aesthetics, beauty and fashion, money and wealth, feelings, emotions and relationships, female energy and interaction,  desire,  social attitudes and behavior. Venus symbolizes female relationships and social interactions in general. Where she is in our charts or in the heavens also influences our values, capacity for humor, and the pursuit of pleasure….plus hearts and flowers 🙂 (that last part I just threw in but I stand by it).

When Venus goes retrograde is can feel like everything has gone a little dull, people can feel they are less beautiful; it can be like looking out of a window that needs to be cleaned, everything looks a little grayer than normal.

People tend to get a bit more serious, and wonder where all the “fun” went. Well silly it’s cuz Venus our supreme party girl has left the building!! She isn’t really gone, she is just gone to take a powder for a few weeks, she is relaxing at a spa somewhere and so we are on our own more than normal to really cultivate our inner beauty and remember that our worth isn’t about external things at all… it’s, as they say, an inside job.

Venus retrograde changes our perception of what is valuable or what we desire. This is why people often suggest that it is NOT the time to redo your hair into a new style or color, or redecorate your house. The reason being that things that appear to us as “can’t live without” during this transit, will quickly move into the “re-gifting” pile once Venus is direct again (hmmm just in time for the holidays 🙂 ). It’s fine of course, to continue with things you started before this all came down; meaning you don’t have to wait if you have already picked out your new furniture, it’s just making the new decisions will be better served later.

It can be a great time to go antique buying or garage sale-ing AS LONG as you know the value. You can get great deals, since things may not appear as valuable during the transit, and so they don’t get scooped up. This is not the best time to look for property, unless again you really know the value. You might however get that loan you have been wanting if it’s been hard to do previously, since it’s all about perception; this transit shifts how things look, and how we perceive them.

Venus retrograde can be troublesome in some cases with relationships, and things tend to just go slower so try not to take stuff as personally if you can help it. Often we are forced to deal with deep feelings that have their origins in past events. However it can help resolve relationship issues that have been plaguing you in the past, it’s sometimes easier (with everyone so down to earth) to have those conversations that have been needed and perhaps even reconcile or resolve a troubled relationship, since folks aren’t nearly as distracted by pretty shiny things. This is the time to go back and take care of unfinished business; emotional, financial, relational.

Venus retrograde is notorious for people popping out of the woodwork that you haven’t seen or thought of in a long time. Past friends, and especially past loves figure high on the guest list of things revisited. I know last Venus retrograde I have 5 different people find me from 30 years ago and reconnect. Don’t be surprised if you have a lot of “blasts from the past” show up as friend requests on one or another social networking site!

It isn’t a great time to go get big ticket luxury items, and in fact many of us may feel the sense of not being able to afford those things, since Venus effects the feeling of desire and affluence. I have to remind myself that this is a transit, meaning it is temporary!

Venus will be going retrograde this time in Scorpio, which is a heads up for folks with strong Scorpio in their charts. It will be a time for deep inner reflection for all of us, since Scorpio is so much about depth, and this inner reflection will occur especially around the topics that are ruled by Venus. It is also advised for us to be mindful about potential feelings of jealousy since they might come up until Venus backs up into Libra around November 8th.

One other thing, is that Mars (planet symbolizing the masculine energy, Yang, warrior energy, sex, power) is in Scoprio and oh so close to being conjunct with Venus…ahhhh but no, not quite!! Just before the consummation of this conjunction Venus turns around and says ahhh nope, and goes retrograde. So it’s conjunction interruptus (bad I know couldn’t help it LOL), or maybe more like Tantra!  So this will draw out that energy for quite a while (spring I think) so Mars is adding a lot of power to this particular Venus Retrograde, plus there are a whole lot of amazing overtones due to the placement of these two planets.

I found an excellent article on that specifically and will include the link here. I really like what this astrologer had to say.

For those of you who want the specifics of time and date here is the actual retrograde information.

Friday, October 8, 2010, Venus reaches her retrograde station at 13° Scorpio 14′, in preparation for a period of retrograde motion that will last until November 18, 2010, when she reaches her direct station at 27° Libra 40′.

Knowing about the astrological weather is as useful as knowing about any kind of environmental factor. It doesn’t have to determine your experience, but it can absolutely inform your experience. Now that we know that we are out in the field and see the big system moving in (can you tell I live on an island?) we can either get into the house in time to stay dry, grab a book and enjoy the show or we can set out our blanket and grab a thermos; let it rain stars and flowers on us, let the water soak us, run down our hair, fill our mouths and wash us clean. It’s still all about choice.

Blessings and aloha
