Matching Awareness to
Sensory Channel

In this segment...

When I first teach the process, I guide people in accessing Awareness in a general way, including all sensory channels simultaneously, (the awareness through the body, sound all around, space all around), or perhaps even something prior to any sensory channel.

Sometimes it can be useful to match the sensory channel of the experience you're working with, and Awareness that is specific to that sensory channel.

A short demo of how to integrate an inner voice with Awareness that is primarily auditory — i.e. the listening capacity that is all around and throughout. The woman is working with a resourceful voice — “the voice of intuition” or “the voice of truth." Connirae discusses the value of integrating when working with a positive experience.

Connirae shares what happened when working someone who had a very positive ‘I’ located in her heart. This woman experienced the ‘I’ as very loving. There is an advantage to integrating these resourceful experiences, so that they become experienced as "everywhere" rather than as localized or contained.

    I love the discussion on integrating positive resources and the potential benefits of that vs. keeping it as a separate thing requiring identification with. There is so much in this I will need to listen multiple times to get the fullness of what was said here. Thank you!

    I found this very helpful personally. I have spent decades hitting growing pains, so to speak, when I have attached or formed an identity to a resource or gift that has been a part of my service to others. I really appreciate what came out of this for me and for Connirae’s wonderful way of opening this awareness through her grace and style of teaching.

  • Q.

  • I’m a big fan of your work, Connirae. I have an observation and question about the ego and its relation to perceptual position alignment. It seem like the ego is very similar, if not the same ‘thing’ as having a piece of our sensory awareness out of place (e.g. having my visual perception more towards the back of my head instead of exactly at my eyes).

    A) In your opinion, are the ‘ego’ and the ‘part of sensory awareness out of place’ essentially the same thing? Are they just two different ways of describing, accessing and experiencing the same thing? I’m not trying to use one model of experience to describe another but instead trying to enhance my understanding of this ‘thing’ we call ego.

    B) From your experience, have you noticed or tested if a person becomes more ‘perceptually aligned’ as a result of going through the wholeness process? If so, from what you can tell, does one process outperform the other in terms of ecology and integration

    Thanks again for continuing to produce great trainings and thank you for taking the time to read this comment 🙂

    Hi Branden, You raise some interesting questions. Yes, I think we could say that when part of the sensory awareness is “out of place” that we could call this “ego.” “Ego” is of course a mental construct, and it has never had a precise definition in terms of experience. “Ego” has also been used in some quite different ways. “Ego” in Eastern Spirituality is usually referring to the “small self” or the “false self” or the “sense of separate self”. Any time we have an aspect of our experience that separates itself from the rest of our consciousness, we could describe this as creating a bit of “separate sense of self.” So in this sense we can consider it part of the ego.
    Now to “Part B” of your question. Yes, in my experience when someone uses the Aligning Perceptual Positions process, and becomes more aligned, this works in the same direction as Wholeness Work, yet in a somewhat different way. So it is good preparation for getting good results with Wholeness Work (as is doing the Core Transformation process). My experience is that the Wholeness Work goes farther and is more complete transformation. So on one hand we could say that Wholeness Work has more complete integration and ecology. However I think there is unique value to each of these methods. There are times/people for whom using the Aligning Perceptual Positions method will be the most useful in allowing/inviting the next step of evolution.
