Fields of Consciousness by Owen Waters

When Easter and Christmas come around, I often wonder – in
order for Jesus to achieve what he does on these occasions –
just how huge his field of consciousness must be.

Consider this. He promised that he would be present in spirit
whenever two or more people are gathered in his name. Even
today, after two thousand years, he still delivers on that
promise. Now, in order for him to be present in spirit in
thousands upon thousands of groups and congregations, all at
the same time, he has to be in thousands of places at once.

He has to be able to split his consciousness into many
thousands of parts, with each individual part being capable of
attending to one group. When someone in that group asks for
healing or spiritual support, the part of him attending to that
group senses the request and provides them with personal

When you consider how huge this avatar-sized field of
consciousness must be, it becomes easier to see how Jesus
performed amazing miracles. By comparison, yogis who practice
for many years have been known to develop the ability to walk
on water. Jesus just went ahead and did it.

Some yogis are advanced enough to materialize small amounts of
physical matter right out of the ethers. Jesus not only
manifested loaves and fishes, but he produced enough to feed
five thousand people!

Some people – ones who can’t see how miracles are achieved –
question whether Jesus’ miracles actually did happen.
Personally, I don’t doubt the miracles. To me, the biggest
mystery is how such a huge and powerful spirit managed to fit
his enormous field of consciousness into one small human body.

Because we are taught to think of our minds as being inside
our brains, we rarely think in terms of fields of
consciousness. In reality, the brain is inside the mind. The
mind is a field of consciousness. The brain is the hardware and
the mind is the software that enters it and makes it work. Even
though your brain started its existence in this life with no
physical memories, your mind existed long before it inhabited
your physical body.

Your brain uses just ten percent of its capacity for conscious
awareness. In addition to your conscious mind, your complete
consciousness includes the subconscious and superconscious
aspects of your mind.

Your subconscious mind holds the memories of all of your
experiences and incarnations since the beginning of time. It
also runs your body’s autonomic biological systems. In doing
so, it displays a knowledge of biochemistry which goes far
beyond the reach of current science.

The largest part of your complete consciousness is your
superconscious mind. Also called the higher self or the soul,
this is the source of intuitive information. Your
superconscious mind is connected to Infinite Being, which is
the spiritual source of all things, and also to the entire

Your complete consciousness – the conscious, subconscious and
superconscious aspects of your mind – can also be referred to
as your inner being. Your conscious mind focuses its attention
towards what is perceived as the outside world, so it acts like
an outer being, although it’s really one aspect of your
complete consciousness, your inner being.

There is ten times more to the brain than the one-tenth that
people are aware of each day. That means that people have at
least ten times the potential that they thought they had and,
thanks to the inner being’s connection to Infinite Being, that
potential can go all the way up to infinity. You just have to
decide how much of your field of consciousness you intend to

You can choose to pay attention to the still, small voice
within. You can choose to ask it for information to encourage
the flow of inner wisdom into your outer awareness. You can
also choose to follow your inner joy as it leads you towards
greater fulfillment in the adventure of life.
