The pneuma of anything is the thing as it is while numina are the processes that play out and involve many possible things. Pneuma is individual, while numina tends to be sort of synergistic.
Numina as processes are all characterized by a co-arising. They are a manifestation of reality as a body politic. It’s sort of like reality is a democracy. You interact with it every time you take intentional actions, and every time you don’t choose to act intentionally and instead react in a knee jerk sort of way. Numina is ripples in a pond, but everything is listening to you. Your car, your clothes, your computer, your plumbing and house plants, and each time they have their own way of making a subtle statement providing some feedback about your personal state of being.
“Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself.” Robert F. Bennett
“Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.” Anais Nin (French born American Author, 1903-1977)
The topic names are a bit tricky because there aren’t a lot of words for these topics. We did a class on Pneuma earlier, but that is not the same as numina. Whereas pneuma is the field of awareness we… Seek More
A personal example of numina… Gaia controls ecological balance, and is rather moderate and tolerant of erratic behavior from the organisms in any specific section of it’s being, but it does exert subtle influences for what would seem to human… Seek More
Anyone want to give me a seemingly random event as an example to start from? A first date. Ok. A first date. That’s a collection of events, but as soon as you have the intention to go on the first… Seek More
Shall I map the numina for you, if only loosely? For our purposes, that planetary process of Gaia consciousness is the baseline part of the numina. Each environment takes on its own character, and thus things like a forest and… Seek More
What is this hyperconsciousness? It relates to the geography of space time in the universe. The hyperconsciousness manifests as our reality flows into other realities and they flow into ours. Events in our reality are not occurring in a closed… Seek More
So practical uses of numina? Get lucid control of your dreams and you can navigate our realities “gravity well” and influence events from there. Tune into the data stream behind your sensory perceptions, the conscious code that it triggers in… Seek More
