In the Four Levels of Perception we focused on perceiving from the level of the physical senses and or emotions and feelings. This in the Q’ero lineage is from the levels of the Serpent and Jaguar.
When you shift your perception to a higher level, you can transform the myriad challenges you’re facing in your emotional and physical world. You can understand that what you perceive as a problem in one sphere is actually an opportunity at the level above it.
Our work together will support you to find simple ways to bring more peace into your life. One of the ways to find peace is by understanding how to identify and then transport yourself to a platform of clearer vision.
Today we will focus on how we enter the level of the Soul or the level of Hummingbird.
The language of this level is image, music, poetry, and dreams – it’s the realm of myth, where the soul can experience itself on a sacred journey.
From the level of Hummingbird, we perceive all of our experiences as part of an epic journey.
This level of perception comes from the most recent addition to the human brain, the neocortex.
“At this level, we sense that we’re all in a journey of growth and healing, making a trek back to where we were born to be, in a condition of divine well-being,” says Alberto Villoldo (the author of Shaman, Healer, Sage).
At the soul level, solutions to problems that we can’t solve with the Mind suddenly become evident and clear.
As we step to the side and go around the mind, we can see the symbols that represent the mythic clearly. This gives us a glimpse of the Hummingbird level and is brought to light through the journey work.
