“When a person achieves heightened perceptions, suddenly things that have appeared to be real can seem transparent, and things that appear very transparent and illusory can seem real.”
Alana: I sense that we are going to have a guest speaker today! But before we do, Alana would like to share a bit about the final sacred step before we begin the great adventure with our guest.
The things we examine in the physical world with our five senses become very real to us. In a physical sense, they are real because we can perceive them. But remember that we can go beyond sensing only our external world, and become aware of our internal world. You have all most likely heard your inner voice and felt with your intuition. These heightened perceptions are sometimes called the sixth sense. When a person achieves heightened perceptions, suddenly things that have appeared to be real can seem transparent, and things that appear very transparent and illusory can seem real.
In this step of “All is Illusion, and All is Real” we will shed light on how the senses relate to perception and possibility. With this last step, you can expand your sense of what is possible. The awareness found in this seventh step can open many doors for you. One is the ability to align vaster resources within your being that will assist in manifestation. Another is understanding that what you see or know is often only achieved because of your point of reference. Holding this thought in mind, could it be possible that by changing your vantage point you may then be able to see a whole new world before you? Perhaps you will experience today that all is an illusion, and all is real!
Another thought to ponder before our guest arrives is this: we have learned to infuse our creative force with attention, intention, will, desire, and heart to create an accelerated velocity of energy. What if we could alter physical patterns and recreate what seems real by using non-visible resources that may also be extensions of ourselves? This is a rather large concept to grasp initially, especially without elements of proof yet being present. However, please keep an open mind that all of these things, and more, are possible! Perhaps what is before us this moment is real, but it could also very well be an illusion. This is so because even though what we currently perceive as real is before us, we are capable of creating something else.
Kirk: Are you saying that if we can open our minds to believe that we are greater than what we appear to be, we can expand our reality and realize that perhaps what we think is real is just an illusion?
Alana: Yes. It is real because in the space we are in we can experience its physicality with our five senses. But perhaps if we referenced what we perceive as real in a different way, it would then become illusionary.
