To really appreciate the spiritual world, you need to be able to sense it with your own spiritual sense. This sense needs to be awake and developed to recognize the existence of these realms, a process that goes through stages. Let us examine how you can recognize these stages.

We will start with people that have not yet developed this sense. Many of them are living with a deep conviction that there is nothing but the material world that exists. Their fate in the physical aspects of nature and the rational mind can be so strong that they think any different approach has to be wrong. This kind of fundamentalism is called knowledge fundamentalism or scientism and hides behind claims of facts and evidence, disregarding any possibility of a human soul. Without a soul, there is nothing but anatomy and physiology and little left for the subtle aspects of reality. This attitude is like hiding the head in the sand and saying there is nothing in the world but sand and any claim of fresh air here in the world (sand) is impossible.

Holonity: The World of Magic and The Magic Circle – by Andreas N. Bjørndal


How can we understand the World of the Magician and use it for our self-development today? Let us take a step back in history first.
.
If you go back a few hundred years many people did not know how to read, they did not spend much of their life within the field of knowledge. Reading, reflecting, thinking, learning facts etc. was a rare activity for the few.
People could not conduct their own life as we can today. They were born with limited possibilities of education with no hope of change of social position or class. Today people in the modern world can learn and achieve almost anything. We have entered into a state of increased autonomy or ability to conduct and create our own life.

The Magnetic Sense – by Andreas N. Bjørndal


Science has, over the last decades, discussed and tried to prove a human magnetic sense or magnetoreception. All the way from bacteria through many different animals in the chain of evolution all the way to mammals have proof of magnetic orientation abilities as well as the presence of magnetite in different body parts that could explain the phenomenon.

Experiments with blindfolded humans turned around and even placed far into the woods not knowing where they were and asked to point towards “home” indicated they had an unknown sense of direction.

The Secret of Your Feet – by Andreas N. Bjørndal


The feet are perhaps the most neglected part of your body. Many people use their feet so little that they degenerate quicker than any other part of the human economy. Grown ups with athletes feet, dry skin, corns, cracks in the soles, fungi on the nails of the feet or deformed toes are very common. On the other side, we have people without arms that have learned to use the feet as hands and are able to do amazing things with them.

External physical nature is easy to observe and relate to. The internal world is so subtle that many people doubt its existence.
.
The outer nature is easy to perceive because it is material, consisting of different components or parts and it has a strong deterministic or causal element. We can touch nature, we can discern stones, plants and animals and we can predict outcomes from experience and knowledge. In short you can say we are on top of it. We observe it as from the peak of the mountain and our intelligence can understand it.

Holonity – The sense of thought – by Andreas N. Bjørndal


You can listen to an audio version of this article, look further down.
.
Yes, you can sense your own thinking as well as the thinking of another. Last month, we explored the sense of words but even deeper than words is the perception of concepts. We did not discriminate it much last time. Now, we are ready to look into this more subtle level. For some people the level of words is what they relate to. To perceive the other person’s way of thinking is to get beyond the words, to get even closer to the core of their identity.
When Descartes formulated “cogito ergo sum” he understood the close connection between the thinking and the awareness of an individual’s identity.
