Spiritual Guide

This information is copied directly from the last few pages of my own book ‘The Ultimate Purpose’.

The Ultimate Purpose

Before we start, I wish to clarify that I am offering myself to you as a guide or mentor to support you ‘should you choose to pursue a pathway for self-enlightenment’. I further offer my support as a guide / mentor after you have become enlightened – you will need it – and I will support you in living as an enlightened being. I will do this from a practical perspective – it has nothing to do with meditation or chanting etc – it is support in the real practical and physical world.

Here we go –

DO YOU HAVE PURPOSE WITH YOUR LIFE?
Goals and targets are superficial conscious states of perspective – there is nothing wrong with them, in fact they are often an indicator that someone is becoming more focused and thinking about what is important in their life. If you are someone who has set any goals or targets then you may be nearer to starting the journey of enlightenment than someone who has no focus. However, some people are happy just to ‘be pure to themselves’, and simply ‘being’ is most definitely a clear indicator that you are receptive to enlightenment.
However, if you are someone that is simply ‘being on auto-pilot’ and going with the flow of conventionality, then you may need to undertake more changes before you are ready for the journey of enlightenment.
Do not feel confused or disheartened by this message – most people live conventional lives and are a long way from the journey of enlightenment.
A clear and simple recognition is now required, and that is –
“Only enlightenment provides purpose – consciousness provides goals!”
Anyone can start on the journey towards THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE.
Age is not a barrier to understanding enlightenment and The Ultimate Purpose.
However, enlightenment needs support because it is very difficult to keep focused and to take action.
Providing support for someone on a practical basis requires the right perspective, and because most people do not possess this, it makes the journey of enlightenment more lonely and difficult.
Success on the journey of enlightenment may be achieved on your own however, for most people support from a ‘professional support mentor’ is preferable.
The journey for enlightenment requires willingness on the part of the person seeking enlightenment to want to ‘receive awareness’, and it requires willingness on the part of the guide / mentor to ‘provide support’. (N.B. It is very important that you recognise that the giving of ‘professional support’ is crucial, moreover, this support must be such, that it reminds the ‘receiver’ that they must try not to be influenced by the conscious perspective of the supporter, or others or even themselves – this is very difficult for anyone to do, but almost impossible if the ‘supporter’ has not gained enlightenment themselves).
One of the biggest problems with ‘conventional support mentors’ is that although their ability to support us at a conscious (and even a sub-conscious level) may be very good – it is of no use to you in supporting your enlightened journey. One of the typical problems you encounter is that the support mentor often relates solutions to ‘financial gain’ or ‘working smarter rather than harder’ – these are all conscious goals, and have nothing to do with enlightenment and the journey for an enlightened person.
An enlightened support mentor would not focus on these factors they would focus instead on enlightenment itself . . .
In a nutshell, you have either received enlightenment or you haven’t.
If you have, then an enlightened support mentor would remind you to focus your efforts on that journey and on what ‘you know to be true to yourself’ – and this may be unique to each person.
If you haven’t received enlightenment, then an enlightened support mentor would encourage you to create as much time in your life in which to seek and gain enlightenment – it is simple.
ARE YOU READY?
If someone is ready for enlightenment then they need to allocate time for discussion with a ‘professional support mentor’.
The ‘professional support mentor’ may be someone who provides an opportunity for relaxation and meditation.
The ‘professional support mentor’ may be someone who provides clarity on what enlightenment is and what it is not.
If someone wanted to start living in an enlightened way, with or without having gained enlightenment, then the ‘professional support mentor’ should be someone who provides guidance with this.
Living in an enlightened way without being enlightened:
Professional Support Mentors:
When you start your journey for enlightenment then a professional support mentor may be of benefit to you.
There are very few people that provide such a professional service, however, there may be many who provide a service that they or you may consider to be of benefit – but this will not be supportive for enlightenment. This is a VERY SERIOUS consideration as such a journey in your life will impact on everything, so it is ESSENTIAL you chose the correct person to support your journey.
Considerations:
• Anyone can gain enlightenment, however, only someone that has gained it AND is on a journey to live as their enlightenment indicates, has the perspective to support you.
• Someone on an enlightened journey will not be focused on themselves – they will have created time in their life to provide focus for you. As such they will have limited time available for others – unless they have changed their whole lifestyle to dedicate to this kind of support.
• Empathy from someone is always good, however, someone who is living in an enlightened way will be as they talk – they will “talk the talk and walk the walk”. If someone is supporting you with information about nutrition, health and fitness (as part of your journey to be THE GREATEST VERSION OF YOURSELF), then you should be able to see that they themselves are fit and healthy and they do as they say – are they walking with you?!
• Similarly, whilst wealth and financial freedom is not an important requirement from a ‘professional support mentor’, if they are supporting your need to free up more time and ‘work smarter rather than harder’ then this should be something they have experience of themselves. They should be as they talk, or at least provide you with the opportunity to fulfil what may work for you.
• If filling your time with something worthwhile is important for you, then a ‘professional support mentor’ would be able to clarify and remind you of THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE. Anyone that has time on their hands is in a favourable position to journey down the path of enlightenment. The opportunity that this time brings “for you to be true to yourself” is less of a barrier than others may face that have to live within the ‘auto-pilot existence of the conventional working community.’ If you have time in your life to ponder on ‘how to fill your time’ – imagine how rewarding it would feel and how energised you would be if you had gained enlightenment.
• Can you imagine how it must feel not to have any doubt or not need to question why you do anything. Imagine how it must feel to understand why others are still conforming to false dreams and goals. Imagine being able to support family, friends and colleagues gain true purpose and happiness. To have that calmness and strength of clarity about almost anything. Gaining enlightenment and then pursuing to live in an enlightened way is to journey towards THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE. Imagine travelling this journey with your partner and family and friends – imagine making the effort to make this dream a reality.
This can be you – this can be your life.

It does not have to be much different from what it is now – it just has clarity of purpose, furthermore, THE ULTIMATE PURPOSE may lead to an awareness and perspective that allows your LEGS to transcend from the ‘conscious perspective’ to the ’empty perspective’ we currently know exists but have no awareness.
• CARPE DIEM- Seize this moment to embark on this journey.
Become – THE GREATEST VERSION OF YOURSELF.
What Now . . .?
May I suggest, you think about things and consider reading the book again, perhaps next week – maybe with your partner or friend.
I hope this book inspires you to take up the journey.

Some of the negative effects of Covid-19 include:

  • Struggling to deal with loss and / or feeling isolated or lonely..
  • Joint pain, loss of energy and weakness.
  • Feeling unsafe and not knowing why.
  • Confusion and frustration with not understanding what is going on.
  • A lack of trust with people, situations and places.
  • The lack of stucture and order and not knowing what to do with your time.
  • Brain fog - not being able to concentrate or think clearly.
  • Struggling to have longer conversations and discussions about positive and creative opportunities - and too much negative talk.
  • Couples and families stuggle interacting together due to a lack of personal and joint purpose in life.

The severe isolation measures imposed by governments have been traumatic to the psyche of people; to the extent, many have the fear of getting tests done and or divulging the results to authorities for fear of loss of income or further isolation. Others live every moment on the edge of media releases and feel totally reliant on vaccinations and guidance and rules on how to live.

THE BIGGER PERSPECTIVE - FURTHER CAUSES OF NEGATIVITY . . .

Society has created a situation where many people have an overdependence on other people for guidance and regulations on how they live. This can be clearly seen with those people who have retired or are suddenly not working and do not know what to do with their time. For many people walking the dog, watching some form of day time TV and cooking, represent the limits of their activity. Their social interaction and discussions are based around such activity or in discussing the limitaions imposed on them and everyone else -

"very few people do something that is both creative and of benefit for themsleves and others; furthermore, they do not discuss the creative process for making this happen - they have lost (or never developed) this self-relience and love of life - they are lost within an 'auto-pilot' existence" -

THIS IS THE BIGGER PERSPETIVE THAT COVID-19 HIGHLIGHTS!

When individals within a relationship or within a family, educational, work or team environment, lack any purpose in life or don't have any creative ideas to stimulate their emotions or thoughts, then they are more dependent on external forces to influence their behaviour. The majority of outside forces are negative, therfore most of the time people will be negative. Covid-19 is not the cause of this negativity - it highlights the hidden problems faced by most people and society.

This post provides a short practical instruction on how to conduct a quick coherence / QUICK CALMING/POSITIVITY PRACTICE:

The optimal times for doing this practice are:

  • first thing in the morning whilst still in bed (before getting up)
  • First thing when you get to work or school etc.
  • every 90 mins once you are active and the day has begun
  • when you get back in bed to settle for a sleep.

It is perfect when combined with other people (especially smaller groups) just before a meeting/lesson/meal.  It may even be used by a family group or a group of friends or work/school/college friends - perhaps in conjunction with an agreed 'positive statement/affirmation'.

Whilst it helps to reduce stress; with the 'the more advanced breathing progression' it is most beneficial in promoting a feeling of wellbeing and positivity; and in activating your parasympathetic nervous system (your feel good system). Once activated this may lead to positive stimulation that facilitates exceptional mental and physical performance, or, if you are relaxing, it will lower your heart rate, lower your brain frequency and promote better rest and natural sleep patterns. When a calm and positive state is maintained for longer and longer periods (with monitoring and practice) then it leads to 'flow' and extends the 'optimal arousal zone'.

Quick Coherence only takes 1 - 2 minutes (it is best done with your eyes closed):

Welcome - By following this short process you will feel calm, positive and energised. The process will work even better when you smile during the process and continue smiling after it has finished - let us begin - you may keep your eyes open or close them - do whatever helps you focus . . .

  • Focus your attention on your heart just to the left of centre in your chest. If it helps, place the fingers of your right hand over the heart so you can physically feel your heart beat - then relax.
  • As you breathe in, visualise the air going into your heart. As you visualise breathing in, count to between 4 and 7 and with each count visualise your heart expanding your belly. Continue doing this until you find your own natural timing. Once you have established your natural breathing in cycle move to step 3.
  • As you breath out and feel your belly go down, visualise either:
    • a special place that makes you feel good; or
    • visualise what you are doing that makes you feel so good;
    • and /or visualise a person or group of people that makes your love come out.
    • as you become more familiar with this, and as it becomes easier to do - focus on giving appreciation or gratitude to someone and allow your love to come out.
  • More advanced breathing progression - once you have become familiar with all of the above - then as you continue with the heart felt focus - PROLONG the breathing out stage, so it is between 3 and 5 seconds longer than your breathing in stage. Then continue this staggered breathing cycle for between 1 and 3 mins. This will physiologically activate your parasympathetic nervous system and stimulate creative and happy hormones.

Adopt quick coherence as a pattern of positive performance:

The quick coherence practice, including the more advanced breathing progression, may also be used in the build up to a high performance related activity - especially as a precursor for being in the flow zone. This is perfect for activities such as climbing or skill related performance or even high intense muscular activities such as arm wrestling, powerlifting, strongman event and surprisingly combat sports - because the more you can perceive stress as a positive opportunity, the greater you will maximise your optimal flow zone perform to your maximum potential. When stress is perceived as being negative, it increases anxiety, increases muscle tension, reduces reaction times and speed and reduces power. Negative stress leads to a quicker loss of energy and reduces mental clarity and sharpness.

Smile and be positive.

Group / team coherence:

Imagine the benefits to a team if you all acknowledged gratitude for one another prior to starting a more physical warm up or at the end of a warm just before you went out to compete. This would minimise stress and allow you to perform at even higher levels of intensity for much longer.  

When Phil Jackson began coaching the Chicago Bulls - and later the Los Angeles Lakers - he says he used the Zen philosophy of mindfulness to help build both teams.

Coherence practice is used by the NHS in Derbyshire:

Quick coherence may be used to overcome feelings of anxiety, stress and help calm you or someone else down when they are feeling their behaviour is becoming more challenging to others.

More scientific research on this is available at - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4179616/

Monitoring and measuring coherence can be done using new technology and with the correct insights.

Elimination is the lowest level of consciousness and calibrates <20:

The strategy for getting yourself or someone else out of this stage is provided below:

The VFP strategy for achieving higher/more positive 'natural patterns / cycles of being' is to re-tune your mental and emotional energy fields, so they do the 'right things' on an automatic basis (using your autonomic nervous system), rather than a cognitive basis (having to think and feel if what you are doing is working).

This approach is more significant when dealing with those at the lowest levels of consciousness. Such individuals 

  • You must have natural cycles of imbalance in your life. These should be positive in maximising you as a physical being. Look at every situation as an opportunity!
  • You should maximise the functioning and capabilities of your physical body/mind.
  • You should maximise your individual creativity and find purpose in all that you do.
  • You should be your best and give yourself for the benefit of all.

When you do this you will find love will allowed to flow from you and you will attract it!

You can’t tune into Love when you have negative forces influencing you - 'love is felt through tuning in to the truth'.

Love is not felt when someone is holding you back and not caring for you as best they can.

You cannot hold other people responsible for their imperfections in respect of your relationship. You need to break negative cycles with people - this does not mean you have to stop being with them, or loving or caring for them; but it does mean you must take responsibility yourself for following more positive natural cycles. If you are not capable of allowing love to come out of yourself for your TRUE SPIRITUAL BEING then your imperfect physical being will dominate your life. You must learn to let love come out by turning negative thoughts and emotions into opportunities to help yourself and others.

You must stop feeling sorry for yourself and you must stop using others as an excuse.

You are not an 'imprisoned physical being' - you may feel like one, and may be treated like one - but you have the opportunity to change this.

When your mind thinks with moving pictures rather than thinks with words (self-talk), then the results/benefits are significantly better.

Mental imagery is a more intuitive process than an intellectual one. It allows you to influence and take control of your unconscious and subconscious; whereas self-talk and worded affirmations focus your influence within your conscious mind.

For most people the language of imagery is commonly experienced during REM sleep at night or whilst daydreaming. However, becoming aware of images whilst waking simply requires us to give it more focus than we currently do. Most people self-talk rather than self image!

Scientific research confirms the benefits of imagery for improving health:

Doctors prescribe pharmaceuticals that control the mind through the body; eg. tranquilizers, antidepressants and anaesthetics. In much the same way, we can use the mind to control the body - and imagery is far more effective at doing this than self talk. There are at least two major scientific journals devoted to imagery research; one from Marquette University (The Journal of Mental Imagery) and one from Yale University (Imagination, Cognition and Personality).

Mental imagery may be used as a process for reacting to experiences (negative or positive), however, it is more powerful when used as a way of 'creating new experiences'. After successive repetitions/cycles (21 days being a natural cycle time that changes behaviour) then the physical body attunes with the mind to make the mental imagery reality - THIS IS A PROVEN BENEFIT!

Within the VFP Digital Tuning Chart we have created audio links that explains how to use imagery to help create your own good health (this is an ongoing development).

 

HRV (Heart Rate Variability):

In terms of 'measuring SPIRITUAL BEING REALISATION' or 'SPIRITUAL COHERENCE' - it may be measured on a physical basis by HRV (Heart Rate Variability). However, what you have to realise is that SPIRITUAL COHERENCE extends beyond your physical being and HRV is therefore limited in its potential to measure the higher levels of consciousness. It would be reasonable to estimate that below the level of 200 HRV is low and not smooth. Peak HRV will start and continue at a level of approx 250. Above this level HRV will peak but it will not indicate your level of consciousness - this can be better estimated using the VFP Digital Tuning Chart.

The similarity between SPIRITUAL COHERENCE and HRV, is that HRV maintains 'high activity, smooth sine wave cycles' regardless of the heart rate or brain wave frequency (excitatory or inhibitory) - and SPIRITUAL COHERENCE maintains 'natural/balanced cycles of smooth waves - that can be excitatory or inhibitory' - so they are very similar to measure!

When SPIRITUAL COHERENCE occurs, on a physical basis, the heart and brain waves become more synchronised / tuned in to one another on an autonomic basis. The important aspect to measure is not whether the heart or brain frequencies are high or low - but that the 'HRV is high and smooth', thus showing a willingness and readiness for either positive/excitatory or negative/inhibitory states. Good coherence indicates a wide range of optimal flow zone frequencies (an ability to perceive stress as a positive challenge, rather than something negative to overcome).

Coherence and a good HRV are indicators of:

  • Positive relationships.
  • Creative initiatives between positive people.
  • Problem solving and group decision making.
  • Bonding and mutual support.

Quick coherence practice is only part of the VFP Tuning Protocol; By following the VFP retuning protocol you will reduce and prevent the negative effects of stress, fatigue and exhaustion, sleep disruption, anxiety and burnout - you will feel calm, positive and energised.

VFP uses the Inner Balance App in conjunction with the Bluetooth sensor from Heart Math to measure HRV. By recording your HRV before any interventions/therapy sessions, during the sessions and after the sessions we can better evaluate the impact of our VFP Protocol.
