FAQ: Hi and Welcome!
I'm Katie Darling, founder of iWave Institute (formerly motherwave and soulwave) and I'm going to transcribe a typical conversation that I might have with you, or someone like you, who is trying to figure out what this "iWave stuff" is all about. (You're in blue type, I'm in black + colors):
(You): What's with the "iWAVE?"
(Me): The word "iWAVE" stands for "infinite wave" and also, literally means: I = Wave, or "the wave of I."
This website, and the iWavework described here, is all about a powerful, direct experience that you can have, in which you wake up and realize Who You Really Are, not just in some mental way, but in a fully integrated awakening that includes your body, breath, emotions, mind, soul and more.
And if this realization could be put in words, the answer to "Who am I?" is: "I am a wave!" (and an infinite one, at that!).This is not some woo woo fairy tale. I'm the daughter of 2 physicists (more in my BIO) and I assure you that it is actually, scientifically TRUE that you consist entirely of waves (of energy AND information), and that these waves are really an individual expression of One Infinite Wave or Oceanic Field. A.k.a. God, Goddess, Tao, Beingness etc. (insert your preferred term).
You may say:
"Katie, so what if I'm a wave? Is that going to pay my rent? Or get me a soulmate? Or heal my Lyme's Disease? Or show me what I'm supposed to be doing with my life?
Yes, really! This work is about Oneness, which is another way of saying that it's about becoming directly connected with the ONE POWER in the universe. This is the power that knows where all the money is, knows more single people than you do (like a mystical match.com), knows the exact frequency signature of your healthy body, knows why you came to earth and your highest life purpose, and how to guide you into all of these! You have heard the quotation (loosely translated): "Seek ye first the infinite wave, and all else shall be added unto you?"
This is the practical application of that Truth.
Is this kind of like "The Secret"?
Nope! The "Secret," along with many similar mass-marketed systems teaching Law of Attraction, and various kinds of "manifestation" techniques, all fall into the category of The Metaphysical. Nothing wrong with that, except that it only works for a while. At a certain point, an evolving soul can no longer manipulate his/her reality metaphysically. Just as there was a moment ––probably long ago––when you realized that there was more to life than The Material, and felt an incredible optimism and excitement as you entered The Metaphysical, so you may have now come to another doorway: the doorway to The Mystical! You can read more about this incredibly important distinction in my upcoming "New Mystic Manifesto." (Sign up for newsletter to get the scoop when this comes out).
(You): So is this why none of the metaphysical techniques seems to work any more?
Exactly! The "Reader's Digest version" of the New Mystic Manifesto is that if you are still searching, you have probably graduated from The Metaphysical (which by the way includes all psychological, mythic, and archetypal work). You find yourself in a kind of limbo in which you can't go back to what used to work, but you don't know how to go forward. You may have heard a few vague cliches about "letting go" or "surrender," but you have no skillful means to make this happen, and usually, no reassurance that this won't leave you on the street starving or alone forever. It's confusing and can create feelings of shame, self-attack, hopelessness or failure. Or just plain ole anxiety.
(You): Yes, that sounds like me. I've tried everything to shift my reality, both inside and out. At first, I was SO thrilled to discover that there was a way of changing my experience that went beyond the physical plane, which seems to be the luck of the draw, and lots of work and struggle. A few of my affirmations and visualizations seemed to work, and when I started finding out what "type" I was in various systems, I was sure that I would now be able to "fix myself." But now I find myself stuck again.
Yes, and it's confusing to be at this place. You may find that things are working LESS WELL for you than for your friends who are still managing to Manipulate The Material plane, or control their reality Metaphysically. You may feel like a loser, you may feel lost, and you may deal with this by desperately going back and trying to "force" reality to change physically/materially (perhaps by working yourself into burn-out) or metaphysically, by trying to control your mind in one of many popular ways––even by "witnessing" your thoughts, which may SEEM more enlightened. (See my video on the right: From Witness to Wetness for more about this).
(You): Well, duh! I feel, at times, disappointed, disillusioned, angry at God, angry at myself, hopeless... but I try to bring myself back and stay positive.
Good for you! Staying positive sure beats the alternative, but until you enter your next initiation, you may feel as though you are swimming upstream, or even lost at sea, if you try to control your experience either by outer (material) or inner (metaphysical) means. What I've found at this stage is that my only hope is The Mystical.
(You): That word sounds a lot like "mysterious" and doesn't really sound practical.
Yes, I know, yet the real meaning of "Mystical" describes a real-life experience of Oneness with our Source. And if it's really our Source, whether you think of it as God or Emptiness or the Zero Point Field (and I am calling it the iWAVE), it is quite literally All There Is. It is not simply another dimension of reality. It is the One Dimension that contains all the other dimensions. This mystical Oneness or Infinite Wave or iWAVE contains us, knows us, created us, knows where we came from and where we're going, and knows how to guide us into our most beautiful, satisfying, abundant life experience. Believe it or not, it WANTS to take us there.
(You): But as far as that spiritual stuff goes, I've been praying, begging, beseeching, and it hasn't worked! In fact I'm pretty cynical about a higher power helping me, at this point.
(Me): I know how that feels, but what if you simply haven't had skillful means to PRACTICALLY access that infinite wave? There is so much love, support, and practical, miraculous transformation available to us when we know how to tune in to it. We cannot conceive of this mentally, but we can experience it directly, by becoming more fluid and wave-like (iWavework).
(You): Hmmmph! What is my next step?
(Me): Check out the trainings (currently on hold until late 2013, but check out anyway if you're interested!). They are a direct opening into the practical experience of what I'm talking about. It's a good place to start, although you can also do some private sessions with me, and check out the rest of this website.
