Excerpt # 2 from Leap of Perception by Penney Peirce
How Transformation Works
Transformation Can Feel Negative and ScaryAs the energy-and-consciousness stream surges through you, it initially disturbs your comfort level as fears and emotional wounds are rousted from their hiding places. You might feel buzzy and electrical, overheated, or manic. Your heart might pound erratically and you might be unable to sleep. Your emotions might spike and dip, making you irritated, high-strung, or despondent. Your mind can be overactive, even delusional. The process brings fear and pain to the surface, causing anxiety, hyperactivity, and aggression-avoidance behaviors.
Most of us are used to living with suppressed fear, in denial, as a sort of make-do comfort level. We use strong fixed beliefs, opinions, and habits as cover-ups so we never have to feel our core rage, panic, and pain; we can just live in our head, on autopilot. But this is not possible anymore. As deep fears and pains rise from the subconscious, memories flood into your conscious mind in present time. That means you re-experience them as brand new fearful or painful real-life situations that closely parallel the original ones — which were never completely experienced, integrated, and released. Drama and trauma abound!
If you haven’t embraced the clearing process, you’ll tend to re-suppress and re-deny what’s uncomfortable. You may try to push it all back down into the substrata with your favorite fight or flight behaviors, the ones that have worked so well before. If you’re a fighter, you might use some form of control, domination, confrontation, intimidation, misdirection and trickery, or stoicism. You might puff up your feathers to appear big and strong. You may take a counter-phobic, aggressive, even violent, stance in life, or develop hair-trigger defensiveness.
If you’re more comfortable with flight, you might ignore the issues and avoid reality by becoming spacey, unconscious, apathetic, or noncommittal. You might feign ignorance, distract yourself and monopolize your mind with addictive substances and behaviors, or fragment your awareness by trying to do the million things in front of you. That way you won’t have time to notice much and your attention span will be microscopic. You might give your power away to outside authority figures, or act helpless, complaining about feeling unloved, deprived, or overwhelmed. Depression often follows.
When the heightened energy scares you and you clench and resist it, it builds up force like water behind a dam, and pushes harder. If you continue to choose and validate resistance, rather than Flow, life becomes intense and difficult, fills with negative experiences, then explodes, creating dramatic breakthroughs and breakups of old patterns.

Seeing through Shocking Situations
Part of the problem in dealing with shock is that it's, well, so shocking! It stops us in our tracks, our mind freezes up, and we may revert to behaviors we relied on when we were four or five years old. This book helps you take a refreshing breath, diffuse the reactionary paralysis, gather your adult wits about you, and gently move forward, not only to a solution, but toward a new, more creative way of living.
We live in a time when shock and trauma seem to be everywhere. Stories of personal shock, as well as reports of shock at a national and international level, fill the airwaves. Life is shifting from an old reality construct—call it the Industrial/Information Age—where solidity, control, competition, and logic have been the rule, to a whole new kind of reality. This new "Intuition Age" will be rooted in a fundamental experience of energy, awareness, unity, cooperation, and flow, and as we grow accustomed to the new way, life will become much more magical and effortless.
For now, though, the "rules" of how life works are in a process of transformation, and I'm sure this is why we're seeing an increase in dramatic, sudden change across the board. Many of our old systems just don't work anymore, and old ways of thinking need to be revised. This is a profound shift, and if we don't understand what's happening, how the overall process works, and what's coming, we're likely to fear and resist the change. Sudden shock can be the result of that subtle resistance, as the accelerating life waves break through logjams to free the Flow.
The important thing about addressing sudden times of difficulty is that we be realistic without wallowing in the drama of negativity, that we don't gloss over things with a superficial Pollyanna positivism, but understand the true nature of the soul's compassionate, sane, positive, forward evolution of our awareness. Our souls use everything to evolve us, even if it's painful. If you have recently experienced a sudden shock, rest assured that your own highest, wisest self is repositioning you, showing you how to find a new view, a new soul-filled experience of yourself and life.

Intuition, Transformation, and Politics: Seeing Through the Smokescreen of Spin
I am not a particularly political person, as I’ve never understood why, when discussing politics, friends and loved ones can become so hotly divided against each other by identifying with ideologies. And then, I’ve never seen much real improvement in society by either party, since resisting and one-upping each other seems to be their main business. I’m not too patriotic either, in the old way where we boast egotistically of our greatness at the expense of other nations. And yet, I have always felt proud of the experiment in consciousness that is the United States. The work of our Founding Fathers, and of the matriarchal Iroquois Nation before them, moves my soul.
I believe America has an underlying spiritual purpose: to serve as a kind of laboratory for new consciousness and enlightenment. With that comes a global role to play as a catalytic, encouraging evolutionary force, not as the know-it-all boss of everyone. I am fascinated watching the process of our national spiritual growth unfold, wondering if we will be strong enough morally, with lessening ego, good enough hearts, and a broad enough vision, to play our part in the world community. I know that what we’re living through now — this exaggerated domination-victimization reality — is a phase in a global transformation process, something necessary to break through to reach a more enlightened way of living. And I know we cannot do it alone, cut off from other peoples by arrogance and ignorance. It’s going to require balanced cross-cultural, international giving and receiving.
The Inner Blueprint and Outer Reality
Like anyone on a spiritual path, I seek to live increasingly without fear and separatist thinking, and more from an awareness of unity and respect for life (of course, it’s a grand work in progress!). To do this, I practice measuring what I experience in my outer reality against what I know of how the internal universal laws function, to see what has natural harmony and actually works, and what doesn’t. With politics, this is a challenging task. The physical mechanics and goings-on of government and leaders are so obscured by emotional opposition, smokescreens of media spin, corruption, and outright lies, that I’ve had a tendency to tune it out rather than make the effort to use my intuition to sort through the heaps of grain and chaff. I know I’m not alone in these feelings of overwhelm, confusion, and helplessness. But if we are to contribute to healing ourselves collectively, and healing the damage we’ve already done to our planet, we must look deeper, underneath the external physical dynamics.
In my work as an intuitive counselor and trainer, I have found that trying to solve problems and create change by working only in the world of form takes an unreasonable amount of energy, time, will power, effort, and cleverness. This way of doing things is too slow and ineffective these days — especially in arenas that are extremely polarized, as in politics. Today it’s more efficient to use intuition to feel into the underlying “inner blueprint” patterns in the thought and energy worlds, and shift things there first via imagination and focused attention. When we do that, the external world of form changes rapidly to match the internal template — and we get great timing without snags. If we try to change the external without changing the internal first, the changes will fade, revert, and the old pattern will repeat.
Today, we’re experiencing a profound change in the inner energy-and-consciousness realm — a totally new inner blueprint for reality is being patterned — while the external world still tries to maintain and align with the old inner blueprint. This causes tremendous stress, since universal law says: the world of form coalesces out of the higher frequency inner energy-and-consciousness pattern and effortlessly takes the appropriate, just-right physical shape — if nothing is in the way. If there are blocks — contractions and fixations in thought and emotion, resulting from fear — the physical form will include those blocks and snags. With the amount of resistance to change today, the just-right shape of the new reality is struggling to break through rather than to simply drop in.
I am interested in looking below the surface of the way politics functions to find trends and see what might be shifting as the energy in the world shifts. What’s really true? Where are the false notes? How can we dissolve impasses and blind spots? And what shape might politics eventually take?
The World Is Accelerating and Perception is Changing Drastically
We, our collective reality, and the planet, are evolving — whether we like it or not. We’re moving from an old paradigm to a new paradigm. In a nutshell, the frequency of the physical world is increasing, which is causing us to undergo a transformation process, or a leap in perception that shoots us into a different organizing model for the way reality, perception, and energy function; we’re gradually entering a new world as a new kind of human being.
A big part of this process requires a dramatic clearing of fear and old thinking — the “impurities” that block the flow of heightened energy and cause distorted physical results. The acceleration itself is prying these things loose because the energy today is stronger than our resistance. It’s as though Pandora’s Box is being opened societally, as well as personally. This means old deeply ingrained habits and fears that were previously stored in the subconscious mind, and invisible, are now rising to the surface and acting out in our lives and in the news.
We see it everywhere — the many scandals, taboos, hatreds, denials, excuses, abuses, secrets, and lies that have already been exposed. Societal structures that rely on ego (identity associated with left brain perception and separation), hoarding, will power, and control are beginning to crumble. Our systems are in a rapid evolutionary mode, trying to shift to a way of functioning that is more efficient for the new levels of energy and consciousness we’re embodying. What’s worked in the past, what’s traditional, is certainly not “bad,” it’s just that much of it won’t function for long in the accelerated energy climate that is becoming the new normal — unless we re-view and re-invent it from the new paradigm point of view. The new outer form must match the new inner energy blueprint.
Two things happen when the acceleration of energy and consciousness opens subterranean vaults of fear and exposes outdated thinking. First, what was already fear-based — for example, behaviors developed to fight and avoid fear, and behaviors that heighten fear — become more intense, exaggerated, and prevalent. We move around in an atmosphere constantly tainted by anxiety and it is always foremost on our mind, even when we sleep. The result is that life is fragmented, ultra-fast, unpredictable, and chaotic. We are always on edge.
The second thing is that life temporarily becomes more polarized. Consciousness is moving toward an experience of oneness, awakening to a unified field of energy, and our attachment to our old way of seeing the world — as mainly dualistic and linear, with great amounts of separation — strengthens in its resistance. The compartmentalized, analytical left brain doesn’t understand how things can function in unity, so it causes us to lock down into what we already know. This has the effect of increasing warlike behaviors, and opposition thinking becomes so intense that the two sides of any polarity seem even farther apart and less able to understand each other and how they are versions of a larger, more comprehensive reality.

2nd Circuit Court Leaves Authors High and Dry
More news from the Authors Guild for those of you interested in what's happening with author's rights. . .
Today, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals released its decision in Authors Guild v. Google. “The Authors Guild is disappointed that the Court has failed to reverse the District Court’s flawed interpretation of the fair use doctrine,” said Mary Rasenberger, Executive Director of the Authors Guild in New York. “America owes its thriving literary culture to copyright protection. It is because of that success that today we take copyright incentives for granted, and that courts as respected as the Second Circuit are unable to see the damaging effect that uses such as Google’s will have on authors’ potential income.
"Most full-time authors live on the edge of being able to keep writing as a profession, as our recent income survey showed; a loss of licensing revenue can tip the balance, particularly in this era when advances and royalties for most authors are down. We are very disheartened that the court was unable to understand the grave impact that this decision, if left standing, could have on copyright incentives and, ultimately, our literary heritage. We trust that the Supreme Court will see fit to correct the Second Circuit’s reduction of fair use to a one-factor test—whether the use is, in the court’s eye, ‘transformative.’”

Melting Through the Buzz to Rest in the Divine, Not the Mind
Having experienced the accelerating energy for many years, I know at times it can be fairly excruciating. I don’t know how you’ve been experiencing it, but people are cracking: school shootings, sex scandals, brutal cases of road rage, fear about money, relationships exploding as hidden agendas come roaring to the surface with dramatic repercussions. Personally I have had periods where I felt as though I were encased in a deep-sea diving suit with water filling it to the top, then subsiding so I could breathe a little, then filling up and subsiding, again and again, as waves of emotion overwhelmed me; and it wasn’t all MY emotion! It’s getting harder to discriminate who owns the emotions in the soup we’re swimming in.
I’ve heard varying explanations about why the energy inside our bodies and in the physical world is oscillating so fast: astrological transits and eclipses, sunspots, esoteric alignments. I don’t know what it is, but it’s real. One day my energy is screwed up to a high pitch and if I’m not super-centered, my mind races ahead, I get frustrated, irritated, and panic can take over. Then, it calms and I come back to an experience of being and all that “being” brings: peace, simple pleasures, creative desires, willingness to love anything. Then, vroom, vroom, vroom! Off we go again! It’s as though there is a contest going on between the ego-mind and the being or divine-mind part of myself. If I tune in to the nuances of either of those states, I know which one I like. It’s just remembering to choose the one I prefer and staying in it as the new reality. During one of the intense waves, I wrote this:
Every few days I feel semi-flattened by something. . .it’s not the world, but an internal energy, a strange state of consciousness. It’s like I’m walking through an energy wall of electrified particles and my own particles are trying to quickly adapt to a radioactive state but the pressure is too great. My particles no longer oscillate; they scream. I take my mind in there, and with its accustomed neat order, it is electrocuted. It wants to leap away. It spreads out without focus and turns grayish mauve. There are no defenses. Then the chaos in the world affects me deeply, the noises are louder, the people abrasive, the harmony so distant. And, oddly, in this flatness of feeling there is no rest. Welling up around every particle is a sad, too-tender syrup of exhaustion.
Am I resting in the Mind, or in the Divine? Is the Mind my environment, my room, my air? But stop! I can’t use Mind to escape Mind. Is surrender a technique I must learn? I can’t take another “how” right now. Will puts me to sleep. Linear thinking makes me want to go unconscious.
Instead, I imagine I’m receiving an injection of a sparkly radioactive serum of higher Love spreading out and medicating me back into the Divine. I need to let it work its way through, not interfering with human doubt and aggravation. Just tune to the vibration of the serum; stay in that, see it, feel it, everywhere inside.
It takes over my Mind and there is profound relief, and after that is the vision of perfection everywhere, and after that there is meeting my real self, then meeting myself in each one, then there is radiating ease about problems, laughing at separation and difficulty. I know the new me is here, waiting, so patient.
I choose the vibration in the energy wall and fall in wholeheartedly, entering the sparkly light. It supports me! It communicates to my particles effortlessly; particles know other particles, adapt their resonances so easily. As my particles adjust, I feel the one unified field of high vibration filled with gazillions of resonating particles. My particle orbits become smaller. As I stay in that frequency, the orbits of the subatomic particles become smaller and smaller and finally disappear altogether. I am left simply BEING in a totally continuous, transparent energy of Love. No more particles, no more vibration, no more duality. All is complete and incredibly peaceful. I wonder if I have just made a quantum leap, gone with the particles out of form into another dimension where they aren’t energy anymore, but pure awareness.If you’re being challenged by the same sort of energy-emotion-mind intensifications, know that you are probably facing some of the core fears and oldest limiting behavior habits you have. These are simply low-frequency interferences that you, the soul, are trying to clear. Yet perhaps even more frightening than that is the prospect of becoming your true self, the soul in the body, the embodied personality. Your ego-mind does not want to relinquish control so it can make it seem that “becoming radioactive” is highly dangerous. We have to remember that everything is evolutionary and the heightening energy is conscious, and it does know what it’s doing.
Here are some things to keep in mind:
• Be on alert for fatalistic, limiting declarations in your conversations or inner self-talk that feed limitation or victim consciousness; stop them midstream when you hear yourself uttering them. Be spacious instead for a moment until a healthier thought arises from your core. Break the old habit of indulging in feeling that you’re flawed, may be rejected, or that you can feel hurt because others don’t feel loved. Watch the underlying anxiety: that you must take away their pain or reject them first to avoid feeling pain yourself.
• Practice observing others indulging in pain. Let them do it; without the pressure to change them, you may discover a simple way to help them through the stuckness instead of taking it from them — if you want to. You can offer assistance to others on a case-by-case basis, because you truly love doing it. First, though, look to clear the same issue (perhaps in a different area of life) from yourself.
• Recognize moments when you flip into accusing, judging, or blaming yourself or others. Suspend immediately and go soft and blank for a moment until the pause lets you think more responsibly about what’s best to do. What really needs to be communicated? Form some words that speak truth without projection.
• When you visit past memories: Breath into them, then exhale back into the present moment immediately, letting your mind go soft, as though you don’t really know what any of it means. Let all the experiences just BE. Do these experiences belong only to you? Or do they belong to a polarized field of consciousness and energy that many people dip into and personalize in their own way?
Recognize the repeating stories. What do you get out of repeating them?
Let meaning come when (or if) it wants to. Don’t overlay a meaning just because your mind is nervous and wants closure or definition.
• Be honest, no justifications, excuses, or side-stepping.
• Contemplate what it really means to forgive, to repent, to receive grace, to give grace, to let things be the way they are, knowing everything is evolving in its own way.
• When you remember, soften your heart, chest, and back; bring oxygen into your cells; stretch out where your body physically contracts; work the tight spots.
• Know that other people can see your excellence and true nature. You don’t have to apologize or over-represent your good traits to compensate for things you think are bad. When you’re quiet and peaceful, your true self radiates widely.
• Your "boundaries" will form naturally when you are truthful about what works for you to be your fullest self. By telling people what works for you, you are not being egotistical or hurting them, but helping them feel comfortable, because they then know how to act around you and that relieves tension for them. Do what it takes to not confuse people about your desires.
• Cultivate a cheerful, progressively enthusiastic attitude toward what’s possible — how problems can be solved magically in a win-win way even though you can’t think of the solution in the moment. Everything you’ve ever wanted or been interested in (that you gave up or put on the back burner) can be included in your present reality, if you allow it. All sorts of combinations are possible, and it’s possible to change it all and start again.
• Commit to the discovery of the present moment, the fresh awareness that is empowered to emerge through this opening that is your consciousness in your body in the here, in the now. Simply notice what your soul is observing. What are you bringing into your consciousness? Then engage fully with it. Learn from it, create with it.
• Let yourself enjoy feeling loved, the way a child does. You don’t owe the person loving you anything, you’re like a dog that enjoys being petted. Your pleasure and feeling of safety, the light in your eyes, your smile, is reward enough for the person doing the loving.
Remember that we are all helping each other, that at a deep level — as souls— we do know what we’re doing, we do have the guidance to return to our naturally enlightened state and wake up from the dreams we’re all so busily embroiled in. We can’t jump out of the frying pan, or out of the fire, since there is nothing now BUT the purifying fire, which is the diamond light of the soul. We’re burning away what’s blinding us to our true state. Our particles know how to adapt their frequency almost instantly when we get our dominating left brain out of the way. And what seems so threatening and unfamiliar is really the most familiar, comfortable, natural state to the soul. This is the state we rest in, and out of which all our creations arise and fall back into, like the tide, like the waves on the beach.
