Cosmoconsciousness and Projection of the Mental Body

Nelson Abreu
IAC California

Throughout history, individuals have attempted to describe a state of being beyond our normal experience of space and time, accompanied by an expansion of awareness with a sense of omniscience and omniconnection.  This type of experience has been described as "oneness with the universe," "experience of enlightenment," cosmic consciousness, cosmic unity experience, causal body experience, mental body or mentalsoma projection. 

Cosmoconscientiarium at IAC Campus, Portugal

Cosmoconsciousness is "the consciousness’ inner perception of the cosmos, of life and the order of the universe, in an indescribable intellectual and cosmoethical exaltation. In this condition, the consciousness senses the living presence of the universe and becomes one with it, in an indivisible unit. Interconsciential communication occurs in this singular condition" [1].

Here, we do not refer to an experience of "ecstasy" since those who experience it, do not describe an emotive state, but rather a state of indescribable serenity, peace, imperturbability, or tranquility, a complete and utter absense of all gross emotionality.  Sentiments are not so-much "felt" as understood, experienced as a result of expanded lucidity regarding the universe and our relationship with it and all other consciousnesses.  The superposition of the consciousness as an individual and as a part of cosmic whole is experienced simultaneously, beyond causality, beyond form, color, shape, direction, distance, words: in a world of ideas.  It is thought that certain historical figures have attempted to describe this state: Plato and his world of ideas or ideals, Augustine of Hippo and his sophisticated (though colored by his religious lense) description of "Heaven" in his autobiography Confessions.  Siddhattha Gotama may have demonstrated awareness of scientific facts regarding the physical cosmos long before the development of modern science and technology.

One of the most detailed and advanced such experiences among contemporaries comes from Dr. Waldo Vieira in chapter 60 of Projections of the Consciousness, whereby the experienced lucid projector describes meeting others projected with the "mental body" (rather than the psychosoma or "astral body"), beyond the physical, energetic, or astral spectrum. Interestingly, some may have been projected from the physical condition, while others may have projected from the extraphysical condition. That is, whether we are currently with a physical body or whether we are in between lives, we can project into this "dimension." In this gathering, a "free consciousness" presented itself. It is one of the few written accounts of an encounter with a consciousness that has "graduated" from the sequence of physical and extraphysical life times known as "rebirth cycle," "reincarnation," or existential series.

Just as the regular projection of the consciousness is akin to a preview of physical death and the afterlife, the projection of the mentalsoma is a preview of the end of this sequence of physical and extraphysical existences. It is as transformational as any experience could be, however, it serves as a reminder that we do not experience this as our normal state and that evolution consists of making the internal changes and interpersonal contributions required to mature to the point where this life and the bodies we use are no longer useful to us. While this point appears to be far into the future for us, it is encouraging to think we will all eventually reach this condition, and that in a sense may already have, beyond space and time that serve as limitations to our awareness but also a necessary scaffolding for our evolution.

Rather than a subtle part of our existence, the development of the mentalsoma reveals itself as central to our self-awareness and self-mastery and lucidity of our interconnection to all living things and everything. Maxifraternity, a cosmic love for all, is continually expanded not as a mere passion or emotion, but a more lucid understanding of reality and demonstrated in our acts and thoughts in an increasingly coherent and central manner. Can we imagine evolution with it?

Though a projection of the mentalsoma is rather uncommon, even for a more experienced lucid projector, partial expansions of consciousness are more common.  In this experience, the mental body is slightly expanded away from the confines of the extraphysical body. In this state, individuals are able to experience a fragment of that "total expansion," accessing greater intellectual, ethical, and discernment abilities, feeling more connected to their surroundings and fellow beings, grasping ideas with greater depth or understanding connections between ideas and events that would normally evade them.  This kind of expansion is faciliated through projections of the consciousness, intentional or as a result of extensive reflection, meditation, or concentration. Related terms, though not precise synonyms, include satori, samadhi. Some examples of contemporary personalities and their experiences are included under "Additional Resources" below.

This subject is covered in classes 9 and 10 of the Consciousness Development Program (CDP Module 3) and a course by subject-matter expert and experiencer J. Lloyd of IAC New York. There are interesting articles in the Journal of Conscientiology and chapters in projectiological works like Projectiology and Demystifying the Out-of-Body Experience. If you would like to find an optimized environment for this type of experience, the Cosmoconsciousness Laboratory (cosmoconscientiarium), is highly recommended.

IAC featured on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory

Last wednesday, Coast to Coast AM's George Noory interviewed author Sandie Gustus on the nature of consciousness.  Gustus described "who we are beyond the physical body, and how the essence of our being is not always connected with a body. Gustus reviewed the work of Brazilian consciousness researcher Dr. Waldo Viera, who proposed the theories of projectiology and conscientiology that suggest that human consciousness exists independently of the body. Projectiology studies the projection of consciousness outside the body, such as out-of-body experiences (OBEs), and bio-energy; and conscientiology looks at consciousness as a series of reincarnated lives, she explained."

Interview with Sandie Gustus begins around 1h17s

"One particularly interesting category of consciousness is called intermissiology, which examines the period in-between lives, or the intermission between lives, she continued. This relates to OBEs, which offer a unique research tool to examine consciousness outside of the body, Gustus noted. Dreams are connected to the physical brain and typically lack a beginning and an end, while OBEs offer more control, clarity, and understanding, she said. The problem with OBEs is not that it's hard to return to the body, but that one is too quickly jolted back to the body, because of environmental and other factors, Gustus added."

Personal Account of OBE: Paratechnology, Remote Reviewing

This article was originally published in Journal of Conscientiology in Volume 10, 2007-2008 of Issue 37, July under An Experience in the Immobilitarium

Personal Account of a Projective Attempt

- by Tatyana Ovcharova

Place and date: IAC Campus Lab, in Portugal, during August 2007
Lab used: Immobilitarium, or lab for Waking Physical Immobility (WPI) technique
Session Number: 2
Temperature: 20oC at start - a/c off during session
Body position: reclined in an armchair with pillow support for knees, elbows
Light: dimmed
Medicine: eye drops 5 minutes before the session
Lab duration: 3 hours

This was my WPI session number 2 of a total of 3 scheduled for the VIP Training course. The first session had been quite difficult for me: I had fought to keep my eyes open, I had swallowed many times, my mind had jumped to different themes, my back was aching towards the end, and I had blinked compulsively.

I made myself comfortable in the armchair. My strategy for this session was different from the first one - I decided to count during the entire 3 hours. I had gotten this idea during a recent projection during which I had used counting together with the carbon-dioxide breathing technique to maintain lucidity during the hypnagogic state. My objective for this current session was two-fold: to maintain awareness of the exact passing of time, and to keep maximum lucidity.

I divided the time as follows:
- 3 hours of the sessios - 3hrs x 60min x 60 sec
- 60min x 60sec = 3600 which I divided into 10 counts of 360 (100 + 100 + 100 + 60)
1st hour - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
2nd hour - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
3rd hour - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
Although at first this technique might look quite complicated, I would visualize this sequence one hour at a time floating in front of me against the white wall of the lab. I was surprised at just how easy it was for me to keep track of all these numbers - the highest number I had to remember was 100, and the rest was just visual in front of me - 1 through 10.

Aside from a very small number of short breaks, I counted non-stop. First I did the full sequence of the 1st hour (once a number from 1 - 10 had been counted with 360 per number, I would visually cross it off or make it drop/disappear). The 1st half of the 2nd hour was a bit more difficult for me, and so I decided to follow with the full sequence of the 3rd hour, counting down from 10 to 1 rather than from 1 to 10 as I had done previously. This seemed to trick my mind: counting down versus counting up made it easier mentally. I finally finished with 2nd half of the 2nd hour, counting down from 5 to 1.

Very often, when my mind would start drifting away, I would start skipping numbers e.g. from 20 to 30 to 40 instead of 20, 21, 22. I would also miss some individual numbers like 20, 21, 24 but my mind, being set on the timer, would focus straight away on the error, which would bring right back my lucidity and resulting mathematical order and sharpness to mentally correct the mistake.

In the beginning of the lab, I was feeling very hypnagogic with my eyes closing and my awareness drifting away. Often I had strong sensations of floating, but I kept to the instructions that my eyes were supposed to be open during the lab. I felt I could have left my body any time I wished, but I fought back to keep my eyes open. There were a few times when I would stop counting, just to let my mind rest, but I had a very keen sense of earth time and knew the interval of the count that I had missed, and would pick up the counting right at the next number. Also many times I would check: "Am I dreaming or am I awake?"

Whenever I would get a headache from counting I would exteriorize energy through the coronochakra. At times, I had a feeling of chest heaviness and would exteriorize through the cardiochakra, which would alleviate this pressure. I also had perceptions of energy flows through the frontochakra as well as the nuchalchakra.

During short periods of mental rest I experienced remote viewing of the construction site for the cosmoconsciousness lab. I saw the energy field around it in the round shape of the future physical roof (unlike the projectarium extraphysical structure, which I have seen in previous remote-viewing experiences and which was considerably bigger than the roof of the physical structure).

The energy field in its visual image reminded me of the fluid-like force-field in the Stargate, although the perceived composition was very different. This gate to the mentalsomatic dimension was a paratechnological vibratory filter. If the person managed to exit through the mentalsoma, his or her mentalsomatic vehicle of manifestation would go straight through it to the mentalsomatic dimension. If the person separated first through the psychosoma, the force-field would act as a magnet that would reject the psychosoma and pull in the mentalsoma: it was a type of extraphysical paratechnology that facilitated the separation of the two vehicles.

Besides the cosmoconsciousness lab, I also saw several extraphysical dome-like structures in the places of future construction sites for labs where no physical structures have yet been built. I had an understanding that instructors will get intuitions as to which labs should be built in the specific places where the extraphysical work has already begun.

In terms of energy sensations, at times I felt a very strong reception of energies through my palm chakras. I also felt the presence of helpers assisting me in this exercise, and I also perceived moving blue lights through my half-closed eyelids.

Conclusions: in the end, my count was 60 seconds behind the timing of the alarm clock. Using the counting technique was a tough but useful exercise for keeping lucidity at a maximum throughout the lab's long duration without moving. This intense focus helped me to avoid compulsive behaviors such as incessant eyelid movements and swallowing, with my body remaining immobile the entire time. In my opinion, the counting technique is a good tool for keeping lucidity during deep hypnagogic states - especially when falling asleep at the beginning of the night, as well as in the middle of the night when attempting projections at 3am to 4am).

Special Courses in L.A.: Chakras & Life Purpose with Wagner Alegretti and Nanci Trivellato

Identifying Your Existential Program
by Wagner Alegretti

More than likely, you have given thought to the purpose of life, or have had the feeling that there has to life than just being born, living and dying. This may stem from an innate sense of responsibility that compels you to be better. 

Take advantage of this 1-day workshop designed to help you find out more about your existential program or life mission. Several techniques will be applied in class so that we are able to recall what we planned for this life before we were born, furthering our understanding of what we intented to accomplish this physical life and why. 

• Learn how to identify your personal talents and put them to work bringing balance and accomplishment to your daily life. 

• We will learn how to discover or expand our knowledge of the multidimensional nature of our existence and be more lucid using every single tool available to us to evolve, help others, and complete our individual and collective mission in life. 

• Study how to prioritize tasks, so that we can take care of our physical life's needs and still be able to dedicate time towards our evolutionary goals (which sometimes are related to our more daily, physical tasks). 

• We will identify the best reasons and criteria to use, to make wiser choices when taking the big decisions in life. For example: is your life mission necessarily tied to to your main money-making activity or profession?

Beyond the physical commitments of life (work, bills, etc.), this lifetime can count as a significant evolutionary step for you as a consciousness (soul); and these accomplishments and realizations are the ones we carry from one life to next, and which, in turn, make us an increasingly complete individual.

Wagner Alegretti is the President of IAC, and has been a consciousness researcher and an instructor since 1986. Alegretti has presented at conferences and has given multiple courses around the world. He was also featured in major media such as Discovery en Español. He is one of the leading authorities on out-of-body experiences and psychic development and has developed many courses on the subject. He is also the author of "Retrocognitions" on past life recall, a best seller in Portuguese translated to English, Spanish and Japanese.

Chakras: Tools for Self-Awareness
by Nanci Trivellato

This course addresses very important aspects related to our bioenergy and the effects of others' energy on us. It explores chakras from a new angle, based on the study of one's manifestation, sensations, ideas and unconscious behaviors. 

Chakras: Tool for Self-Awareness explains the mechanism of energetic coupling (temporary merging or intensified connection) with other consciousnesses, and the possible development of awareness to identify the chakra responsible for that energetic interaction, which could be positive or negative.

It also informs participants about balanced or unbalanced patterns of energy, individually examining 10 of our chakras, considering points such as:

  • Factors that facilitate energetic development 

  • Causes that provoke blockage of individual chakras
  • Sensations of and reactions to blocked or activated chakras
  • How a healing process is accomplished
  • Tips on how to improve the condition of our chakras
  • Diseases and their relation to the functioning of each chakra
  • Influences from previous lives to our energy system 
  • Energetic strength and personal self-defense 

Nanci Trivellato is one of the most experienced researchers in conscientiology, specializing in non-physical perception, synchronicity, and human energetic fields. She has experienced parapsychic phenomena since she was 7 years old. Trivellato has offered conferences in the Americas, Europe and Asia, and she has been featured in numerous media programs. She is the founder and editor of the Journal of Conscientiology and recipient of the Global Prize on Conscientiological Research.

Children's Recall of Past Lives and the Period Between Lives

by Nelson Abreu
IAC California

Either he [Dr. Stevenson] is making a colossal mistake. Or he will be known as the Galileo of the 20th century.  - Dr Harold Lief in the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
Sujith tells his mother that he was a railroad worker and then a seller of bootleg arrack in the village of Gorakana, about eight miles from where they now live in Sri Lanka.  He has quite a taste for cigarettes and arrack.  Did I mention he is barely two year old?  His mother is not shocked by the past-life account of her son, who tells her he was struck and killed by a passing truck along the highway in front of their house, after getting drunk and quarrelling with his wife – he remembers how he would affectionally call her Maggie. 

As a Buddhist, she naturally accepts the concept of reincarnation, or the idea that the self lives several, successive physical existences and transcends the physical body, therefore surviving its death each time.  In IAC's Consciousness Development Program, students are introduced to the neologism existential seriality, that includes the period between lives. That is, we see a sequence of physical and extraphysical periods, alternating between periods of having and not having a physical body.

A monk selected sixteen items about Sujith’s statements that could be checked for accuracy and visited Gorakana, where he verified virtually all of them.   Six months before Sujith’s birth, a Sammy Fernando that fit the profile indeed lived there.

IAC Radio: Return to Life: Reincarnation Research with Dr Jim Tucker 00:00/ 28:11

Formerly a professor of psychiatry at the School of Medicine and director of personality studies at the University of Virginia, the late Ian Stevenson had been among the world’s leading reincarnation researchers.  Funded by Chester Carlson, the inventor of the photocopy machine, Stevenson was able to find behavior parallels and corroboration for fifty-nine of Sujith’s statements about his earlier life as a Sammy. 

These included a taste for spicy food and wearing a type of shirt and sarong not commonly found among young children, inclination to free use of profanity, singing, physical violence, notable generosity, wariness around policemen, and great fear of trucks.  When he brought the Fernandos and the child together, he seemed to instantly recognize several of them, including Maggilin – Sammy’s widow.  He called her several pet names Sammy used, proclaimed his love for her, and blamed her for his death.

Cryptomnenia, or the mind’s creation of ‘memories’ from books, films, and other data sources based on present-life traumas can explain many purported cases of reincarnation, but cases like Sujith’s reveal it does not necessarily rule out reincarnation.  We all know that because some pathological cases exist, it does not logically follow that all cases are such.  Genetic or inherited memory is an unsatisfactory hypothesis since many cases cross family, cultural, geographical and ethnic borders.

Dr Stevenson and colleagues documented cases around the world, including some that included biological evidence: for instance, birth marks or defects that a highly correlated to mode of death or other events in the purported past existence.  The evidence is so compelling it has been published in major international journals and is among the studies that renowned popular astronomer and skeptic Carl Sagan admitted warranted further investigation and should not be readily dismissed.

Wagner Alegretti, president of IAC, is an internationally-seasoned consciousness researcher, and also defends that existential series can be scientifically and personally verified.  Besides dedicating over a decade to recall moments of his own past lives and studying the existing literature, his major contribution in the field has been elucidating the link between recall of past lives and the out-of-body experience or projection of the consciousness.

If we entertain the possibility that the self is non-physical, we can use scientific reason and method, but venture beyond the physical body and dimension, taking seriously the possibility of the self as being different and more than energy. 

By encouraging and training individuals and researchers alike to have their own experiences, encouraging mastery of the perception and control of chi or vital energy, parapsychism, and conscious projections beyond the body, the concensus grows among these experiencers that they are each multidimensional and multiexistential consciousness.  Scientific conclusions can then be derived through consensus of experiences as well as formal experimentation.  Direct, personal experience as a source of knowledge and self-improvement reveals itself as irreplaceable.

Though several movies and books report cases of people having such experiences, few explain why the phenomenon happens and how to generate it.  As a notable exception, Alegretti’s Retrocognitions, the English version of the best-selling Brazilian edition, is a sophisticated, mature, comprehensive and integral study of the mechanism of the phenomenon through Alegretti’s own experiences and research.
It discusses factors that predispose or hinder retrocognition; types of past life recall (spontaneous, forced / induced, and generated at will), benefits and precautions regarding retrocognition, and its purpose as an evolutionary tool.  It highlights that the out-of-body experience may allow one to temporarily escape the restriction of acuity caused by the physical condition, giving us more access to our integral memory: including recall of the period between lives, which few other researchers have studied. Among the exceptions, we find Michael Newton and, in fact, Jim Tucker, one of Dr. Ian Stevenson's successors.  

Not only does the projection of the consciousness facilitate such recall, it is a way to observe existential series "live, on the scene, as it happens."  In other words, we can observe the process of biological death and confirm that a person continues to exist with their subtle body in the extraphysical period. We can observe that those who are more lucid in this extraphysical period are reviewing their previous existences and preparing for the upcoming physical period. This could be a window in the our own recent past, when we may have been doing the same.

We can also witness different stages of the process of rebirth, how an extraphysical consciousness prepares for energetic connection with a new fetus leading to its ultimate physical birth, returning nightly to the extraphysical, with or without awareness, through the out-of-body experience, and eventually through biological death, once again, a sort of "final projection" -- final from that specific body, but far from the first, and far from the last, in the multi-millenary cycle we are calling existential series.

Although there are interesting applications for historians, judges, geologists and other professionals, the most profound implications for this study deal with understanding daily life: remembering past experiences can help us avoid repeating mistakes.  Perhaps the most provocative idea is that of recall of the intermissive period between two physical lives, which could allow us to remember a life mission we may have planned to execute in this life.  Alegretti suggests we could identify former family members, friends and "foes" who may be in their physical or extraphysical periods presently, clarifying the roots of the dynamics of our relationships; hints about our inclinations and traits, phobias, shortcomings and prodigious skills, why we were born into a particular family, and concepts on ethics and karma at a personal, group, and humanity level.

Note: In issue 35 of the Journal of Conscientiology, you may read a tribute in memory of author and researcher of past-life experiences, Ian Stevenson. This tribute was written by Jim Tucker, a child psychiatrist who became one of Stevenson's successors in his work. Jim Tucker makes the work accessible to the lay audience in Life Before Life, which includes a chapter on children's recall of the Intermission. Dr. Tucker has also published a paper co-relating recall of the intermission with descriptions of out-of-body experiences, especially of the near-death experience variety.

Please Support IAC's Tree Planting Campaign

Would you like to help mending the ozone layer?
Would you like to leave an ecological mark?
Don’t worry! We will plant and take care of them for you!

This campaign is part of the tree planting program by the Environmental Oasis Project working in partnership with the IAC Campus Development Department. The objective of the program is to increase the amount of trees throughout the IAC Campus. Some of the main areas include the parking lot, the tree walkway and parts around the lake.  

The goal of the campaign is to obtain 100 samples of varied local species of trees and select those that fit the official forestry requirements.

The tree planting will be done with saplings ranging from 1m to 1.5m high, using mechanical perforation, special fertilization soil placement and rooting.

When will the planting take place?
If the campaign is successful, we are hoping to plant the trees in March and April. We are counting on your help!

To learn more and to donate, please visit the IAC Campus Oasis Project site.

Altered States of Consciousness

Class 5 of IAC's Consciousness Development Program discusses phenomena and altered states of consciousness.

Altered States of Consciousness (Altered States of Awareness, xenophrenia) refer to internal, subjective states of being whereby there are changes in one's mental state, almost always temporary.  Changes can include changes in attention, concentration, awareness of surroundings, accuity of senses, suggestibility, rationality, creativity, and sense of time, for instance.

Altered states of consciousness, like the period between wakefulness and sleep, known as hypnagogia, can be associated with artistic creativity. Many historic writers, painters, and inventors have been aware of this.  Altered states like hightened concentration can facilitate feats that would be nearly impossible during our average state of mind: outstanding artistic and sports performances are one example of this.

An interesting article of mathematical discovery nearly a century ago with important ramifications in multiple fields that came in "dreams" near death was recently in the news, as it was only now confirmed. Austrian percussionist extraordinare Martin Gruginger describes being in an altered state during performances that allow him to play thousands of notes for hours at a time without reference.  The out-of-body experience, of course, also considered an altered state of consciousness. Some examples include:
  • Coma
  • Convulsion
  • Daydream
  • Delirium
  • Ecstasy
  • Euphoria
  • Extrasensory perception
  • Fear
  • Flow
  • Higher consciousness
  • Hypnagogia
  • Hypnopompia
  • Hypnosis
  • Hysteria
  • Meditation
  • Music therapy
  • Out-of-body experience
  • Panic
  • Psychosis
  • Religious experience
  • Sexual pleasure
  • Sleep
  • Sleep paralysis
  • Syncope
  • Wakefulness

Glossary of Conscientiological Terms

IAC main website has a comprehensive glossary of Conscientiological terms used in publications, research and courses. Here are some of the commonly used terms that you may find in the blog:

Animism (Latin: animus, soul) – The set of intracorporeal and extracorporeal phenomena produced by the intraphysical consciousness without external interference. For example, the phenomenon of lucid projection induced by one’s own will.

Assistantial – Related to or denoting assistance. An assistantial task is universalistic, cosmoethical, fraternal and should ideally be clarifying (clarification task) instead of consoling (consolation task). Nonstandard expression: assistential.

Assisted lucid projection – The projection wherein the intraphysical consciousness finds him/herself to be directly assisted, during the experiment, by a helper which is almost always an expert in lucid projectability.

Auric coupling – Interfusion of the holochakral energies between two or more consciousnesses; interfusion of energosomas. Synonym: energetic coupling.

Blind guide – The amoral or inexperienced consciousness which helps another consciousness – in an anticosmoethical manner, according to its momentary egotistic interests – to the detriment of others. Analogy: amaurotic guide; pseudo guide; wrong guide; immature guide.

Cardiochakra (cardio + chakra) – The fourth basic chakra, the influential agent in the emotionality of the intraphysical consciousness which vitalizes the heart and lungs. Also known as the heart chakra.

Chakra – A vortex or defined field of consciential energy, the totality of which basically constitutes the holochakra or the energosoma (energetic parabody inside the body). Note: the word chakra is one of our critical neologistic limits. We have not encountered another single international word that is more adequate, or apt, to put in its place and eliminate the philosophical preconception that exists with respect to this term (as well as its derivations and cognates). What is above all important, in this context, is conceptual content and not linguistic form.

Clarification task – The advanced assistantial task of elucidation or clarification which can be performed individually or in group. Plural: clarification tasks.

Coincidence – The state of alignment of the vehicles (holosoma) of manifestation of the consciousness.

Consciential energy – The immanent energy that the consciousness employs in its general manifestations; the ene of thosene. Abbreviation: CE.

Consciential epicenter – The key intraphysical consciousness of operational epicentrism who becomes a fulcrum of interdimensional lucidity, assistantiality and constructiveness through the extraphysical clinic. Directly related to penta or the personal energetic task.

Consciential laboratory – Building with harmonious planning of its intraphysical, bioenergetic and extraphysical characteristics, designed to optimize comfort and conditions that may facilitate parapsychic experiences. Besides the physical aspects planned, in the non-physical dimension, an energetic-informational field (holothosene) specific to the theme of each laboratory is installed. Thus, the more the building is used, the stronger its holothosene and effects. This specialized arrangement creates a multidimensional chamber, providing opportunity for deep self-research.

Consciential paradigm – Leading-theory of conscientiology, based upon the consciousness itself.

Conscientiology – The science that studies the consciousness in an integral, holosomatic, multidimensional, multimillenary, multiexistential manner and, above all, according to its reactions in regard to immanent energy (IE), consciential energy (CE) and its multiple states.

Consciousness, the – The individual essence or intelligent principle in constant evolution. In conscientiology the word consciousness (as in “the consciousness”) is considered to be synonymous with mind, ego, intelligent principle, and others, and is not being used to refer to a state of consciousness. Outworn synonyms: soul, spirit.

Consolation task – Elementary, personal or group, assistantial task of consolation.

Coronochakra (corono + chakra) – The chakra in the area of the sinciput, crowning the holochakra; crown chakra.

Cosmoconsciousness – The consciousness’ inner perception of the cosmos, of life and the order of the universe, in an indescribable intellectual and cosmoethical exaltation. In this condition, the consciousness senses the living presence of the universe and becomes one with it, in an indivisible unit. Interconsciential communication occurs in this singular condition.

Cosmoethics (cosmo + ethics) – The ethics or reflection upon cosmic, multidimensional morality, or the cosmic moral code, which defines holomaturity.  Cosmoethics surpasses social, intraphysical morals or those morals presented within any human classification. It is a subdiscipline of conscientiology.

Desoma (de + soma)Somatic deactivation, impending and inevitable for all intraphysical consciousnesses; final projection; first death; biological death; monothanatosis. First desoma, or simply desoma, is the deactivation of the human body or soma. Second desoma is the deactivation of the holochakra. Third desoma is the deactivation of the psychosoma.

Discoincidence – The state of non-alignment of the vehicles of manifestation of the consciousness (holosoma).

Egokarma (ego + karma)The principle of cause and effect active in the evolution of the consciousness, when centered exclusively on the ego itself. The state wherein free will is restricted by infantile egocentrism.

Energosoma - The energetic parabody of the human consciousness. The energosoma forms a junction between the soma and the psychosoma, acting as a point of connection through which consciential energy flows from one consciential vehicle to the other. Also referred to as holochakra.

Existential program – The plan of actions for the current intraphysical life that an individual devises, prior to birth, supported by his/her evolutiologist, aimed to achieve the greatest holokarmic and evolutionay outcome possible within his/her lifetime.

Extraphysical consciousness – The paracitizen of an extraphysical society; a consciousness which no longer has a soma. Outworn synonym: discarnate.

Groupkarma (group + karma)The principle of cause and effect active in the evolution of the consciousness, when centered in the evolutionary group. The state of individual free will, when connected to the evolutionary group.

Helper – The extraphysical consciousness which is auxiliary to one or more intraphysical consciousnesses; extraphysical benefactor; consciousness who lucidly exercise advanced multidimensional interconsciential assistance. Archaic equivalent expressions that have been outworn through continued use: guardian angel; angel of light; guide; mentor; spirit guide.

Holochakra (holo + chakra) – See energosoma

Holokarma (holo + karma)The grouping of the three types of consciential actions and reactions – egokarma, groupkarma and polykarma – within the principles of cause and effect, that are active in the evolution of the consciousness.

Immanent energy – Energy that is primary, vibratory, essential, multiform, impersonal, diffuse and dispersed in all objects or realities of the universe, in an omnipotent fashion. Immanent energy has still not been tamed by the human consciousness. It is too subtle to be discovered and detected by existing technological equipment. Abbreviation: IE.

Karma – Set of natural universal laws of cause and effect that guide the evolution of the consciousness, operating as a basic evolutionary self-regulating mechanism of energetic and cosmoethical balance. Note: The word karma is another of our critical neologistic limits. We have not encountered another single, international, word that is more adequate, or appropriate, to put in its place and combat the philosophical preconception that exists with respect to this term (as well as its derivations and cognates). What is above all important, in this context, is conceptual content and not linguistic form.

Lucid projection – Projection of the intraphysical consciousness beyond the soma; extracorporeal experience; out-of-body experience (OBE).  Abbreviation: LP.

Mentalsoma (mental + soma)Mental body; parabody of discernment of the consciousness.

Near-death experience (NDE) – Projective occurrences that are involuntary or forced due to critical human circumstances of the human consciousness, common in cases of patients with terminal illnesses and survivors of clinical death.

Polykarma (poly + karma)The principle of cause and effect, active in the evolution of the consciousness, when centered in the sense of and the experience of cosmic maxifraternity, beyond egokarma and groupkarma.

Projectiology (Latin: projectio, projection; Greek: logos, treatise) – The science that studies projections of the consciousness and their effects, including projections of consciential energies outward from the holosoma. It is a subdiscipline of conscientiology.  

Psychosoma (Greek: psyche, soul; soma, body)Vehicle of manifestation of the consciousness in the extraphysical dimensions. The emotional parabody of the consciousness; the extraphysical objective body of the intraphysical consciousness. Outworn expression: astral body.

Retrocognition (Latin: retro, back; cognoscere, to know) – The perceptive faculty through which the intraphysical consciousness becomes aware of facts, scenes, forms, objects, successes and experiences that pertain to a time in the distant past. These issues are commonly related to one’s holomemory.

Silver cord – The energetic connection between the soma and the psychosoma which is present in a projection of the consciousness, resulting from the energosomatic energies.

Sleep – The natural state of rest in humans and superior animals that is especially characterized by the normal and periodic suppression of perceptive activity, voluntary motor activity and daily interpersonal exchanges, through the relaxation of the senses and muscles, a reduction in the heart and respiratory rates, as well as by oneiric activity, during which the organism recuperates from fatigue.

Soma – Human body; physical body. The body of the individual of the Animal kingdom, Chordata phylum, Mammiferous class, Primate order, Hominidae family, Homo genus, and Homo sapiens species, being the most elevated level of animal on this planet; nonetheless, this is the most rudimentary vehicle of the holosoma of the human consciousness.

Strong trait – The strong trait of the personality of the intraphysical consciousness; the positive component of the structure of the consciential micro-universe that impels the evolution of the consciousness.

Thosene (tho + sen + e)The practical unit of manifestation of the consciousness, according to conscientiology, that considers thought or idea (concept), sentiment or emotion, and CE (consciential energy), as being three inseparable elements.

Universalism – The set of ideas derived from the universality of the basic laws of nature and the universe which, through the natural evolution of the consciousness, inevitably becomes its dominant philosophy; cosmism.

Vehicle of the consciousness – The instrument or body through which the consciousness manifests in intraphysicality (intraphysical consciousness) and in the extraphysical dimensions (projected intraphysical consciousness and extraphysical consciousness). Also: Vehicle of manifestation of the consciousness.

Vibrational state – The technical condition of the maximal dynamization of the energies of the energosoma, through the impulsion of the will. Abbreviation: VS.

Weak trait – The weak trait of the personality of the intraphysical consciousness; the negative component of the structure of the consciential micro-universe that the consciousness has still not been able to discard or rid itself of.

The most generous deed one could perform is helping someone else.  All kinds of works are worthy, but those efforts made to help someone else are more permanent than the work to achieve purely material profits.  For example if an individual spends ten years investing time and energies to create a work of art if this object is damaged nothing is left of the efforts invested in this enterprise.  When this individual goes through the physical death the art object is left behind.  If this person invests part of its time and energies to help others it will make friends.  These friendships continue even after death since we’re all immortal.  This can be easily verified by going out of the body.

Clarification task is the most important type of assistance that can be performed.  Clarification helps others become more lucid, helps them grow and improve themselves.  Assistance can be given while out of the body.  A person can collaborate to assist as well as receive assistance while outside of its physical body.   Those that have had lucid projections know this and recognize the importance of projections as a tool to help.

We know individuals who have been helped with their sickness while they were supposed to be dreaming.  We imagine that you too know cases like this.    If the person does not know about projections it concludes that it had a dream in which she/he was being treated.  What really happened was a non-physical treatment during a projection.  Nevertheless if one is lucid while out of the body one knows that it is possible to be helped and to help cure someone else.  What we want to emphasize is that it is possible to use a lucid projection to assist others.  Physical beings who are asleep as well as those that already went through biological death can be helped.  

The individual who has control of its projections and who maintains emotional balance joins extra physical teams and could frequently decide who to help.  One could be aware as to leaving the body, going far away from the bedroom until arriving  in a different place or dimension where the person to be assisted is waiting.  In this meeting the energies that the projector voluntarily sends will interact with the energies of the extra physical patient.  Through the transmission of energies one can positively affect others by performing therapy in the recipients energetic and astral body.  When the patient wakes up it brings to its physical body all the positive energies that were received in the extra physical dimension.  Little by little this more harmonious energetic pattern influences physical life until the improvement in the physical body becomes noticeable.

The IAC – International Academy of Consciousness regularly teaches subjects like how to go out of body, assistance and  consciential development to name a few.
