                                  A Spiritual View Point

                                                             letter from Kyle Bailey to Peter Brown


Dear Peter,

The theme for the 2015 North west Shamans Summit is the Higher Self. With this Higher Self theme in mind. I have decided to write a article entitled The Higher Self.
As a experiential shaman , these are some of my thoughts and experiences with regard to the Higher Self. First of all the Higher Self is the Authentic self. The authentic self or the higher self comes from the HEART , not the mind. The authentic or higher self can not be fully explained on the intellectual level. The roots of the higher self/authentic self , come from a place of spiritual silence and stillness. In order to better understand the higher self or the authentic self I will also talk about the LOWER SELF. In large part the lower self starts with our birth. After birth , family , friends , government , and school socialize and actualize us. We are told who we are , from many outside sources. We are told what are place in life is , from many external sources. Our so called limitations ,  are explained to us time , after time.
In shamanic Toltec terms , the lower self is the Tonal self , or the daily routine thought processes. The Tonal mind , or lower self focuses almost solely on the rational thought  process. The rational thought process has its proper place. How ever most other forms of perception are mostly unknown , or undervalued. Rational , or logical thought are greatly valued in life.
Some of the many other forms of worthy perception are
A.....HEART INTUITION
B.....BODY INTUITION
C....SPIRITUAL INTUITION
D....FEELINGS
E....EMOTIONS
F....GNOSTIC PERCEPTION
G....EXPERIENTIAL PERCEPTION
H....DREAM PERCEPTION
I.....ECSTATIC TRANCE MOVEMENT
J....MEDITATION PERCEPTION
In short , only one tiny area of perception is given great value , the Newtonian mind set of two plus two is always four. And I will only believe it , after I see it. The Tonal or daily mind set leaves out about 98 % of all other forms of perception. The Tonal mind often has the need to name things out of fear , in order to control every thing. 
The HIGHER SELF ,  or the AUTHENTIC SELF , comes from  spiritual silence. In order to come from your Higher self or in Toltec terms your Nagual self . Release all that you know. And lower your awareness into a place of silence in your heart. Meditating , or praying will also strengthen your Higher self , or Nagaul self.
One easy way to find out if you are operating from the lower self or the higher self. Look within , if you feel limitation , or fear. You are operating within the lower self. How ever , if you feel at peace , you may be operating with in the higher or authentic self. Both the lower self and the higher self have value. We all grow at our own rate. It is best if we all love our self's  unconditionally.
The higher self , is very Gnostic , and intuitive. The Higher Self , has few , if any limitations.

Ps , the North west Shamans Summit will have 15 presenters, and be 3 days long.Dear PeterD


I hope that I do not take up too much of ur time. I would like to explain one of the key areas that I am working toward.

Many people feel that the mounting problems of this world will be solved with logic, or science. Or in other words, our well known daily state of mind. Ps, one of the problems I refer to is pollution.  Both logic, and science, can be some what helpfull. How ever the state of our world, comes from who we are. In order to heal our world, in a full and long term way. We must change our perception to a spiritual view point. A spiritual view point, helps us understand that lasting joy comes from within the authentic self. The self may be the CREATOR. Not the very acculturated, conditioned daily self. Objects, and things, do not bring deep lasting joy. The daily self is the very limited often fear full self. When we live from a spiritual view point, only then, will deep long term healing take place. Many blessings,

Kyle Bailey

 

Hi kyle

Do not worry about taking up too much of my time. i might be a bit slow in responding sometimes as you have probably noticed.

There is the old saying - every solution creates 3 more problems, evidenced by our attempts to fix our pollution, our water shortages and other myriad problems of our modern western world.  there does have to be a grounding in just being practical. 

How much can we consume?  How far can i drive or fly? 

I would agree that we have to have a spiritual aspect of our lives and in the best sense that we act with this as our guidepost, but what about all the billions of other people in the world?  we can set examples.  we can live within our means and regional existence, but does this stop the keystone pipeline?  does this take all the pcb out of the salish sea so that we can eat the fish without sickness?

Most people are in the here and now which can often mean that desire for a new car, a happy meal or my next door neighbor's wife.  our culture is so mind based so enlarging of this part of our being that it is out of whack.  the mind is

Mostly about fear in our culture - fear of losing, fear of not having enough. 

Fear separates us from the world, and our educational system has done a wonderful job of giving so much weight to this mind to the point that it is causing us to teeter over.

One the of the modalities of healing that i practice utilizes the Chinese 5 element framework. in this system 5,000 year old system of looking at life, or i should say the human being in life, is that there are 12 officials (westerns call them organs)

That allow us to be in the world.

In this worldview, the heart is the supreme controller.  the brain is not even one of the 12 officials. it is not even recognized as important.  the spleen is more important.

To stop my ramblings, yes i agree that we need to live more from the heart!
