A SHOT OF ADRENALINE IN THE HEART: THE DEAFENING ROAR OF TECTONIC PLATES
In the movie Pulp Fiction, a syringe is plunged into the character Jacko's chest, giving him an injection of adrenaline. When a patient's heart stops they are often injected with a shot of adrenaline to revive them. In those moments, it is as if the dead come alive. On January 17, 1994, I was in a state of semi-consciousness, as I vaguely heard what I thought was my wife arranging boxes in the garage in the dark. A second later, it was if someone injected me in the heart with a shot of adrenaline and I awoke to the loudest deafening roar I have ever heard in my life, the roar of massive tectonic plates moving beneath the earth during the Northridge earthquake.
It was 4:31 AM PST and my thoughts, which were confused and dream-like, went into a primal rush of super clarity as what sounded like a nuclear bomb going off triggered a massive rush of adrenaline. We live on top of one of the dual epicenters of that massive 6.7 earthquake. The house was shaking so violently that I thought it was in the process of collapsing. Although there was no apparent warning, my wife subconsciously sensed the danger, as she decided to get up for no apparent reason...at the time we had three tiny kids in diapers. However, I want to get back to the warnings in my wife's subconscious and the fact that our cat and other animals were aware of something before it hit.
By God's grace there was minimal property damage and no one was hurt, although I had neighbors a couple of houses down whose floors ripped in two, through the foundations.
Although we had lived through many California earthquakes I had never experienced the deafening roar that sounded like a freight train had smashed through our living room or a nuke had gone off. That was something no one we talked to had experienced before. However, the point I want to bring up is the inner warning system we all have built inside of us that is far deeper than our physical senses. It is a spiritual knowledge that connects us to a kind of network, an early warning system of the soul.
Right now we have in America what I call "white noise." I use "white noise" to help me go to sleep and mute other kinds of noises that may be keeping me awake. There is a danger in "white noise" because it hides noise we should hear, like a smoke detector or some other sound of warning like a dog barking. For the most part the media in America, with few exceptions, functions as "white noise," for it gives no real information; it simply provides a barrage of sound and images designed to keep you distracted, or entertained. Its primary function is to lull people to sleep and sell products through the constant emission of alpha waves.
In a nation where people's minds are awake through real education, thinking, reasoning, analysis, and historical review, there is what could be called an intellectual sensory field which allows us to anticipate all kinds of things through rational thought and minds which are awake and in a state of awareness. In America today most minds are in a kind of sleep state...even though they appear to be awake, they are not. Education (as opposed to indoctrination) along with a knowledge of history allows the awake mind to constantly process information.
Then there are the intuitive and spiritual levels of human consciousness where people can subconsciously receive information. These sources of information are often dismissed as being illusory or based on fantasy by those who have developed the rational side of their brains, or the left brains, to the neglect of the right brains where the intuitive and creative functions are found. The mind and soul are always analyzing and processing information. The right brain is able to analyze patterns, trends, visual information, voice patterns, and the entire massive spectrum of sensory information far more quickly than the left brain. It produces a deep inner sense of knowing that is not based on mysticism, but millions of neurological pathways processing vast amounts of data very quickly. It can see things that are hidden from the so-called rational mind.
Finally, there is what is called "the spirit of your mind," which is something most people do not understand. On one level this involves your human spirit, the consciousness or energy field that drives our biological computers we mistakenly call our minds. But at a higher level this is plugged into a kind of cosmic matrix of information. This is a concept which is difficult for some people to grasp because it brings us into the theological or spiritual level of existence. For example, Jesus Christ talked about the "Father" giving what was called the "Helper," "Counselor," "Holy Spirit" and "Comforter." When you bring this up in many churches many times people have no idea about what you are talking about and they assume you are speaking about some kind of deep emotional experience.
But that is not what this is about at all.
Many people rely on emotions and especially deep emotions to give them what they believe is a more transcendent form of information. The problem is that emotions are produced by the human soul, which is the part of the human biological computer where memories, experiences, thoughts and feelings are stored. If those sources of information are out of balance for whatever reason, such as an intense desire for something to be something it is not, this deep emotional system provides flawed feedback. This is the area where successful con men operate because they know how to manipulate those deep pools of emotion.
This is not the same thing as the "Counselor" or the "Holy Spirit." What Jesus Christ is talking about is the Third Person of the Trinity, and that is something many people reject, often because they don't understand it. In a nutshell, if God is the Triune Being He claims to be, then by being plugged into or receiving the "Helper" or "Counselor," you are plugged into the matrix of the Godhead. As such, you are receiving a continual download from what is called "the spirit of truth," which is distinct from "the spirit of your mind." You are receiving all kinds of information that people who have not downloaded this "app" cannot receive.
So if you train yourself or renew your mind you can develop the capacity to receive accurate information about future events and other information, to a limited degree. The problem here is that most people who claim to have downloaded this "app" and say they know how to use it are often allowing an intense download of incorrect information to move through them because they have not developed the ability to discern the difference between their own emotions, fantasies, ideas, personal belief system and truth. Personal bias and personal emotional confusion corrupts the information flow. But the point is you don't have to be injected in the heart with a shot of adrenaline to be awake. If you are willing to admit that you are vulnerable to false data and willing to discipline your mind, you can get a far deeper understanding of the truth and even see a little bit into the future.
