The five-parts of the matrix

Body

Our bodies are the bridges between earth and spirit. As spiritual beings, we are having human experiences.

It’s essential that the physical vessels, our homes, stay healthy and vital. Real, holistic healing involves grounding our psychological and spiritual discoveries into the physical reality of our existence.


Mind

The mind helps us to organize, plan, comprehend, create, visualize, discern, and use logic. In contrast, the unruly mind can be illogical, ignorant, prejudiced, hateful and deluded. The mind can be used as either a tool of creation or destruction.

All of our suffering originates in the mind and the unexamined thoughts, beliefs, mindsets, defense mechanisms and wounds that we carry. By accepting and carefully reflecting, we can transform distorted thinking in order to better support healthy living.


Heart

The heart symbolizes a mindful connection with our soul and spirit. It reflects intuition, courage, vulnerability, gratitude, compassion and empathy. In essence, our hearts opens us to the world around us.

Pain, trauma, heartbreak and toxic core beliefs all can cause the heart to become closed or shut off from our true selves, our souls and nurturing others. We need to heal our hearts so we can reach spiritual, mental and physical wholeness and well-being. Wisdom and guidance is essentially sourced through the heart.


Soul

Embrace the idea that the soul is inseparably connected with consciousness, spirit and the mind.

The soul is to the spirit as the feminine yin/Shakti principle of divine energy is to the masculine yang/Shiva energy. Within each us we carry these two energy forms. The state of their connections and balance varies and requires attention to maintain harmony, and in a sense, create gender equality.

Think of your soul as your nascent self or genuine nature. It contains all the wisdom, guidance, and nourishment that you need on this earth.

Your soul responds to life, to rhythm, to joy, to music. The purpose of the shamanic healing practice of soul retrieval is to gather as much of our life force as possible in order to live this life to the greatest degree that we can as human beings.

Soul is an essence closer to our individual selves. We can think of this as our personal consciousness. It connects us to a wider spiritual realm — that which is universal and eternal. We can think of this as our collective consciousness.

Most importantly, an enlightened or ‘illuminated’ person is one who has united with the soul and spirit and is able to transcend the ego mind.


Spirituality

The spirit is the canvas on which the entire expanse of creation dances. This transcends the mind and ego and is the birthplace of all life. Everything arises and returns to this ultimate primal force.

Spirituality is recognizing and celebrating that we are all inextricably connected to one another by a power greater than all of us, and that our connection to that powered to one another is grounded in love and belonging. Practicing spirituality brings a sense of perspective, meaning, and purpose to our lives. — Brené Brown,

The Spirit is at the core of most religious and spiritual movements and traditions. The Light, Love, God, Brahma, Tao, Void, Oneness, and Infinite Consciousness are only some terms used to refer to the spirit.

Yet, spirituality does not come from religion. We are not born with religion. We learn a religion. We are born with a soul and a collective, unifying spiritual sense of a power greater than ourselves.

Our personal stream of consciousness holds it all together. At a deeper level we are connected soulfully and spiritually with a collective consciousness.

The matrix is primarily about functional correlations and balancing connections for homeostasis.
