When I am healing, I HAVE to have an elevated state, to connect. To BE in that place where I don't exist. Where what occurs is divinely guided and where the most exquisite healing experiences take place. This applies to both spiritual discussions/counseling/guidance and also energetic field tapping/healing/clearing. If something happens to where my consciousness is brought down for some reason, I actually have to intentionally "shift" to get back to where I need to be to do these things. I have had moments of "physical world incidents" knock me out of a heightened state and my responses are completely different. It is amazing to watch a transformation as it happens. :)
In this "state" of consciousness, nothing matters. Everything is of peace & love. There is no duality. There is no individualism. There is no conflict. There is no emotional response. These things are of the physical realm and don't exist "there". All that matters is the purest of everything. Ease takes over. What we have access to is so much more than the human mind can even try to understand.
When I am in a physical world state, I can tell a huge difference in even my own responses. I still don't normally react in as an emotional way. I do respond from a lower vibration, even though it is not anger or blame, I am much more responsive than when I am in a heightened state. I do "see" duality, even though it is less than before. I try very hard not to remain in this state .... finding that I have found an in-between state of like half & half. I can function on a physical level without the triggers or emotional responses (usually?), because I "understand" so much more now. But, I am not totally "up there" where I function when I do healing sessions, as that requires such a high state, that I could not function at it 24/7. (although I would absolutely love to!) So, I have been able to find a better balance on most days. I try not to allow others to pull me into their low-vibrational thoughts or responses. I can still usually detach pretty well, although ever second, I have learned to stop, breathe, and shift.
In that highest state of consciousness, awareness of everything is simultaneous. The only purpose is to help, heal, love. There is this purity and inner peace that is unwavering. It is in this state that anything is possible.
