PsychoNoetics, Karma and Enlightenment

With enlightenment, we take back our spirituality from religion, our sanity from the mental health professions and our own vision from those who would educate us to their beliefs.

With enlightenment we take responsibility for ourselves and end our submission to an unenlightened society. In doing so drop our confusion, our helplessness, our resentment, our aggression, and our separateness and replace it with serenity, clarity, power, and the compassion that comes from kinship with all beings.

PsychoNoetics is enlightenment practice and enlightenment therapy!

What is PsychoNoetics?

PsychoNoetics is a radical technique which has parallels in Vedic, Buddhist and most of all Taoist practices but is also is thoroughly modern, rooted in the psychology of perception, as well as understanding the way the ego and "enoe" (soul body or karmic self) is formed or karma is accumulated.

In Western terms, psychonoetic clearing releases memories and the conclusions that come from them, as wel as their associated emotions and the survival strategies, defenses, attachments and belief systems which make up the ego and the enoe. The enoe comes between the pure awareness of universal consciousness and the world we are aware of. In that sense it is a perceptual filter. In Eastern terms, psychonoetic clearing dissolves the negative Karma which we have built up, both in this lifetime and in previous ones. Understanding the interrelationship between perception and karma is a major contribution of PsychoNoetics.

PsychoNoetics also bridges East and West technically. It uses the therapeutic dialoging techniques of modern psychotherapy in order to focus in on the problems, but the actual clearing process utilizes meditative techniques as well as the psychic dimension.

What is Karma?

Karma is the influence of our past on our present. It is a body of unconscious conclusions which remembered, shapes our thinking, guide our actions and color our perceptions. Therefore karma invisibly shapes our destiny.

All of your past is karma. Yesterday is as much Karma as three lifetimes ago. You're continually accumulating karma and it is always influencing present perceptions and future events.

What karma is not?

Karma is not a principle of supernatural cause and effect, whereby deeds done in past lives create rewards or punishments in this life. This idea is used by some religions to intimidate people into obeying the moral directives of the church; however like all half-truths it is ultimately misleading and even destructive.

What is bad or negative Karma?

Karma is simply what we have become. It is the sum of what we have come to believe or conclude on an unconscious level. These conclusions shape our perceptions and guide our actions. However, to the extent that these conclusions are mistaken, they distort our perceptions and misguide our actions. This perpetrates the dysfunctional patterns we experience as bad or negative Karma.

Where is karma held?

Karma is held in the enoe, (also called the soul body or the Karmic Self). This is an organization of consciousness midway between our physical self and universal consciousness. The enoe is immaterial. It resembles the Judeo Christian concept of the Soul. However the concept of the enoe is more precise and more complex than the concept of the soul, since it perceives, learns and evolves. The enoe is that which reincarnates.  The of

As the enoe learns, it can also unlearn; as it can evolve, it can also devolve; as it can be constructed, it can also be deconstructed. However, almost like the write-only data on a computer, learning, both on the egoic and enoic levels, is meant to be permanent. Nature has put safeguards in the way of accidentally erasing it. Therefore you have to learn the necessary procedures to circumvent the safeguards and at the same time, put your own safeguards in place so that you don't destroy useful data, only data that is mistaken and misleading.

What is the principal benefit of psychonoetic clearing?

The primary problem facing all of us who are on the path to greater consciousness is staying present in the face of adversary. Our individual histories, over both this lifetime and past lifetimes, present us with innumerable triggers that elicit unconscious and inappropriate defensive reactions. Most psychotherapeutic strategies for dealing with this problem overlay the negative reaction with a positive one. But this strategy creates internal conflict and is a recipe not for higher consciousness but rather for self-consciousness. Most eastern ways of dealing with this problem are not much better. They utilize a twofold strategy of avoidance. The first tier of this avoidance strategy tries to solve the problem by staying centered in meditative consciousness. The second-tier is the adoption of an ascetic or monastic lifestyle. (In fact, it is this problem and not moral concerns which has prompted the invention of asceticism and monasticism).

The strategy of PsychoNoetics on the other hand, is not to avoid these egoic and enoic triggers but to dissolve them. This is not only a path to awakening but to staying awake; it gets us there and keeps us there! (It also reduces the necessity for meditation and frees us to get out into the world).

In summary then, PsychoNoetics is both a therapy, a means of unlearning and a path to enlightenment. How does it work?

PsychoNoetics is both a psychological process and a psychic one. These are the steps Dr. Eisen both takes and recommends.

  1. Focusing in on the negative or dysfunctional pattern by talking about it, either with a therapist or a loving, nonjudgmental friend.
  2. Identifying the remembered memories, conclusions, beliefs, attachments and other obstacles which constitute the dysfunctional pattern.
  3. Finding out whether these dysfunctional patterns originated in a past life of the present one.
  4. Testing whether the person is ready to release the dysfunctional pattern in question. (Often there exists an underlying problem which has to be cleared first.)
  5. Facilitating the release of the dysfunctional pattern. This has a psychic component. (Astonishingly, when the negative pattern is released, not only are the behaviors changed, but often the person literally becomes unable to access the negative feelings that minutes before threatened to consume him.)
  6. Reinforcing the emerging, positive pattern.

Can I learn to clear myself?

Yes, after doing a certain amount of psychonoetic clearing with Dr. Eisen or another trained guide, either privately or in a workshop, you learn the fundamentals. You also receive a psychic transmission which will empower you to use the techniques in your everyday life. [People differ in the ease with which they assimilate the intrapsychic components of PsychoNoetics. However, with perseverance, anyone can master them.

How do I start?

Dr. Eisen leads Karmic clearing workshops. He also does Karmic therapy with individuals, both in person and on the telephone, and with couples and groups in his office. In the near future you'll also be able to learn Karmic clearing from tapes and CDs and an online course is in the planning stages.
