I’m learning to follow inner impulses more and more. So when I woke this morning, eager to do a blog on shapeshifting, that’s what I did. This post is the result of that impulse.
My last post on shapeshifting gave a great overview. It detailed what’s needed, in a general sense, to accomplish the feat. That post described current beliefs most people possess. Beliefs which make even thinking about shapeshifting as a practical reality pretty much impossible. However, nearly everything we want IS possible. Including becoming a shapeshifter. We’ll talk more about the possibility in a bit.
The previous post also covered identity. We humans believe we are these bodies. That belief prompts other limiting beliefs. Beliefs also making shapeshifting impossible.
For example, a belief in medical science gets in the way. That’s because it implies the impossibility of certain things. It implies, for example, that the body can’t spontaneously regrow limbs. Or that germs and viruses are what makes us sick.
Germs and viruses are cooperative components to illness. But there’s a lot more to how bodies manifest dis-ease that medical science doesn’t account for. Let alone believe in. That’s another blog post, however. So instead of going there, let’s get back to the topic at hand.
The last post looked generally at beliefs. Let’s look more at beliefs as we consider what’s required to become a shapeshifter.
Fear, it is the mind killer
Frank Herbert, creator of the Dune franchise, was spot on. Our emotions point to what’s possible. A Positively Focused practice examines emotions in great detail. That’s because they’re crucial for being able to expand beyond human confines.
Humans enjoy great potential. We can experience freedom like no other being. We can experience freedom with no limits at all. But our beliefs limit that freedom. This morning, for example, I woke with a clear understanding of this. I realized, for me, the very act of working a job limits my freedom. I’ll write a blog about that another day. But this realization showed me something important. It showed me how our daily lives reveal how deeply we disbelieve how free we are. How we live as a society constantly reinforces our self-imposed limits.
Emotions like fear help us understand those limits. But if we don’t know what they tell us, we don’t get the understanding. Fear tells us something really important. Essentially, it’s saying, the “mind” (intelligence, your infinite potential, our Broader Perspective) is being limited by whatever belief currently is active in us and triggering fear. Fear literally tells us we’re limiting mind-potential.
Fear, therefore, doesn’t kill the mind. It tells us WE’RE “killing” it. Making it dead. Putting it in a box. Putting it in bondage. Bondage created by whatever thought(s) we have active in the moment we feel fear. This is a crucial thing. Understanding emotions and using them for their intended purpose makes being free a lot easier.
Our freedom has no limits. Anything is possible. Even shapeshifting.
Anything happening in dreams is possible in the physical
When we understand we enjoy unlimited freedom, we forget about being free. Instead, we focus on adventure inherent in freedom.
Imagine freedom as a newly-discovered planet. A planet with no boundaries. The more we explore it, the more there is to discover. That’s how freedom is.
And so when we accept that is freedom’s nature, a boundless playground, then it’s easier enjoying the adventure freedom inherently possesses. When we arrive at that orientation, where we focus near-exclusively on the adventure of life, then we’re ready to consider a wider scope of what’s possible.
This is why the Positively Focused Way focuses so much on emotions and, later, in advanced levels, on dream work. Dreams aren’t what people think they are. What they really are are journeys we take each night. The experience we call dreams are experiences our unbounded Broader Perspective constantly enjoys. Yes, even as we in our earthly bodies have whatever limited experience we have.
In dreams we’re unlimited. We can do nearly everything.
In a Positively Focused practice we reconnect with what’s happening in dreams to bring that awareness and possibility to consciousness. Dreams are the unlimited adventure I described above. Everyone enjoys them. Even those thinking they don’t dream.
The real fun starts when we bring that unlimited adventure to our waking lives.
Conscious awareness of freedom and adventure
Becoming aware of what’s happening in dreams, then bringing that awareness forward into waking reality is key to shapeshifting. Can you see how?
That awareness, the feeling of unboundedness, is key. It’s what’s needed to even begin believing in shapeshifting as a possibility. If we don’t believe it is possible, it can’t happen. So belief is key too.
Both freedom and adventure are hallmarks of worlds we experience while “dreaming”. Only we’re not “dreaming”. That word cheapens what we’re really doing while the body sleeps. While the body sleeps, what we’re really doing is living the full potential of all we are.
Making that conscious in our awareness while awake, we can then realize anything we experience in the dream state is possible in “reality”. After all, what is “reality” other than a really vivid dream?
That’s another key element to allowing shapeshifting into our experience. Freedom and adventure are hallmarks of life and the dream world. We are completely free. The adventure comes in when we accept our freedom as a given. Then focus on boldly exploring how free we are.
When we settle in that consciously and aware, only then can we allow into our experience what the majority believes impossible. And when we do, we become the example, which sets others free. You see how that happens, right?
That’s the purpose of the Positively Focused Way. We become examples others can follow. And in doing so, we become deliberate agents of expansion. There’s nothing better to live one’s life for.
