My Dream

My Dream

If you knew your wildest dreams WERE coming true, what would you WANT to dream? What would you dedicate your focus to if you knew you were destined for success?

For me, it’s a wildly expansive, yet collective view of the world we live in. I dream of a world, and a community of mankind, United. To see all living the lives of their dreams and being able to freely experience the world without the obligation to limitation of fears, or merely where, or what situation you were born into.

The only way I know how to make this dream come true is to BE IT.
So I am…

I have attempted twice now, and the third time will be a charm; I will be heading around the world via motorcycle to adapt to all world cultures, languages and practices, sharing of myself and receiving of others to make partnerships in between borders and connect an around the world circuit, personally. My blueprint rout is south through Central America, a loop around South America, from Brazil to South Africa, north through Africa into Egypt and Israel, loop around Europe counter clockwise, come south through Russia/Ukraine into the Middle East, into India, China, Southeast Asia and Pacific Island hop home, manifesting the means to keep healthy my body and my motorcycle through countless services.

Upon my return to Oregon, where I was born and raised and in time will raise my own children, I will erect a three story black glass pyramid that I received in a vision just a couple years ago (“The Academy of the Heart” - https://www.facebook.com/academyoftheheart/), which is a free school that will teach and philosophize everything under the sun, and beyond.

There have already been a number of synchronicities to move my journey towards this outcome along its grand and daunting path, including coaching the great granddaughter of the man whom the land the pyramid will be on, was named after, and even more recently becoming a member of my first church, The Unity Church of Grants Pass (renamed the Open Heart Unity Center of Grants Pass - ) where I now teach and lecture, just as I will in the pyramid.

First thing’s first, I need to grow my numbers and create have a sizable nest egg to embark with (I’ve already taken two leaps of faith with next to nothing, and though it all worked out, I’d like a bit more ease to making this grand journey as comfortable as possible). I’m looking for people willing to donate to my cause, and in turn will provide you with one or multiple things in return (yoga/meditation lessons, Reiki healing, fire spinning lesson/performance, wellness consulting and coaching, and even a dance lesson if you prefer). All of the proceeds will go into feeding and sheltering myself and my Kawasaki KLR “Dark Horse”, and contributing to my worldly education.

Would you please help me into creating the character I dream to be, and the world I sense we’d all like to create?

I will not let you down, even if you cannot help me with finances, just please keep me in your prayers, and visuals and see us both as plentiful; our thoughts are things and we do consciously create on a moment to moment basis, believe it or not (an important part of our day to day meditation and yoga journey, whether we commit to it or not).

I am thankful for the challenges I will and do face, thank God/Source/Spirit for enabling me and blessing me with this incredible life, and thank you for giving me your attention and an opportunity to give and to receive.

Blessings abound to us both.

Energy Union - A Workout for the Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual.

I noticed early on in my spiritual life journey that much of my culture separated its spiritual/religious time from the rest of work and leisure time, whereas other cultures around the world practice their religion, well, religiously. I'm not saying one is more right than the other, but I have found that a life infused with gratitude and overall awareness is truly rewarding. During my travels and studies, I have gleamed and preened from all that I have experienced and looked to the future of getting the absolute most out of workout within a classroom environment.

Here in the United States, typically we have our physical workout in a gym, our mental workout in a school, our emotional workout in a counselors office and our spiritual workout in a church or temple. I thought, why not combine all of those things into one practice? Thus "Energy Union" came into being.

This workout is for anyone and everyone who has a belief that life can get easier and better with a little help from yourself and others. Energy Union is held in small class sizes; between 4-8 people. During the first 15-20 minutes of the practice, we gather in a circle, introduce ourselves and state to one another what it is we are desiring in our lives. Any goal or dream will do; the important part is having the courage to speak your inner truth to a small audience of your peers - this can be quite a workout of the senses all by itself. We do this for a couple reasons: One, so that everyone is in the same boat; speaking honestly about ourselves creates trust. Embracing the number one fear of public speaking is a big step into a greater liberation. Two, now that your goal/dream has been spoken to an external audience, there are now multiple people looking out for you and helping you to create the connections necessary for progress. It's like having multiple spotters whom not just giving you words of encouragement but assistance whenever possible as well.

The second part of the workout is a fusion of Yoga, Meditation and QiGong; the most fundamentally important and overall rewarding practices I have discovered in my life. The title, "Energy Union", derives from the Mandarin word "Qi", perhaps the best English translation is "Energy", and the word "Yoga" in Sanskrit means "Union". Since science has shown that all things are vibrating energy, I believe it is vital for us to be able to focus and unionize our energy, both as individuals and collectively (or, see that it already is, but perhaps could be organized in a way that serves ourselves more so). I simultaneously guide and demonstrate a manageable, yet challenging workout that keeps ones focus on the bones, tendons, muscles, organs and Qi to create a closer relationship with oneself and gain more influence over the breath, body, emotions, mind and the bio-electricity that connects everything together.

Students who have an open, humble heart and are willing to give it their best will prosper most from this practice; but still will those who are desiring to discover a little bit greater overall health and well being. If you would be interested in changing certain aspects of your life through this newly created practice, please let me know. Till then and always, blessings be.
 

Are you certified?

I ask, by whom? This organization? That administration? And who gave them the credentials to label others as worthy and unworthy?

I'm sorry to say world, but too many out there are, what I call, "hoop jumpers". We do tricks to show others we're worthy of one thing or another and if we try hard enough, we get a little piece of paper or a ribbon that usually gets tucked away and collects dust; no one even asks to see it. I ponder; Why? If these articles are so important then why aren't we holding them on our person because of the many who want or need to see them?

Let me take you all the way to the biggest certifications I have acquired; my college degree and my certificate of marriage. Now, before I go further, let me first point out that I do not regret either of these experiences, but they taught me predominantly one thing: the very act of getting these certifications contradicts the very thing they mean to support (knowledge and love). Let me explain.

In 2008 I received a BS (no pun intended) in Digital Art and Business Administration. I left the University of Oregon with a beginners education of the field and NO EXPERIENCE. It cost me somewhere around $50,000 for something I could have paid Lynda.com $25 a month, for a few months to catch up to speed (which I later did). All I would have needed was a little passion and discipline; college taught me neither. Who were these fine collegiate educators? Two groups mostly: 1. A group of professors who received their Masters or PhD decades prior, some decrepit and aged from years of cut backs and a student population whose restless minds he/she could rarely satisfy, and some pompous enough to believe that their certification allowed them to do whatever they wanted and gave them permission to not have to be enthusiastic about their practice any longer. And 2. Students themselves, being paid by waiving tuition costs, some enthusiastic and truly promising, most didn't know what they were doing. Overall, apparently, I was there to be entertained, not necessarily educated.

On New Years Eve 2011-12 I was married to the first person in my life whom I can truly regard as an authentic soul mate. We married for many reasons; some right, some wrong. Once we were married, it was like the contract was there to say we must love each other and we must stick together. She fell out of love and I struggled to the point of massive suffering to try and make it work. In the end, it was folly, I had made a mistake by listening to the guidance of what I thought was right, rather than what I felt was right. We had to hire a de-certifier to get a legal separation (practically whistling while he worked on my shattered heart, represented in paper files) and then again to get the dissolution when it was clear that there was no getting back together.

All that trouble for one lesson: contracts, documentations, judgements and certifications mean absolutely nothing, except to those who fear. I fear no more. I read energies now, not papers.
 

I LOVE how only "OREGON" wasn't burnt. Completely unintentional.

I LOVE how only "OREGON" wasn't burnt. Completely unintentional.

After my marriage was over and the love for my college education was completely gone, I turned to something that served me greater then any wife or college professor ever could, myself. I studied my own consciousness through motivational speakers, yoga, and meditation which later branched out to qigong, dancing, singing, farming, and fire spinning, to name just a few. In contrast I realized something incredible: People value your energy over your documentations. Crazy enough but people tend to go on what they think and feel way more than what they know to be true. And they all come to that because, my guess, they followed similar steps and have had to helplessly watch it crumble apart.

That is why I am creating Full Circle Phenomenal; not for the title, the status nor the awards, but for giving the gift that gives back: Raw, unfiltered love and guidance towards a truer, Phenomenal reality - Full Circle. I don't need someone else's permission, I dedicate myself to my practice for my whole life long because I know it to be an education that must be invested in constantly. It is creating a creative and exciting life; for myself and others. If I don't dedicate myself and my enthusiasm to the practice, then any certification I would have received would become a mute point; just as it did with all those grandfathered professors. We have the all world's ever expanding knowledge in our pockets now (which seems to be mostly used for unfulfilling drama and focusing on problems rather than solutions).

I understand my true identity; the One behind the clothes and the skin, even the thoughts, and the feelings and he does not need anything but another One open to making something great together and getting healthier in the process.

I extend this invitation to you; another One, just like I am. It could be any One but only some One who is also ready to start listening within and allowing it to teach them what is actually happening and how to take hold of this experience we've labeled 'life', and make it extraordinary.

It's so much easier then going up against so much resistance. To let go of the need to please your external audience and to please your internal one is magic; it makes the world fall perfectly into place. That is what I do; I guide myself and others to enhancing their experience. And I am open to sharing my abundance if you are interested in having some. Fall, and I will help you back up. Fail, and I will show you how to succeed. (Refer to the sentence prior.)

All the Love,
-Jesse Hart

I saw this *sign* shortly after the last person asked about my being certified. I saw a beautifully written, "he". I love that "she" is just a little prettier, "he".

Joy

Why? Why are we here? Why would someone spend their life experience practicing yoga, messing about with others through acrobatic yoga, move energy around with QiGong, move without shame in ecstatic dance, or risk injury by spinning and breathing fire?

In a word; Joy.

When I was moving through the initial start of what could be labeled as my "spiritual awakening", I had a vision where my best friends were angels. I asked them, "What is the purpose of life?" One answered back, "To walk about space." At that point I believed I was going to die. For some reason I thought that once you knew what the game was about, it was over. But no, it was truly just beginning. I expressed my insecurity to my best friends and they responded that I was not going to die, but what would I do with my life, walking about space. It took some time to calm the stirring and many a synchronicity that led me to decide that I would make a living, living. And how to best do that? Firstly by discovering the depths of ability of the mind, body and breath in unison - hence, yoga. But that wasn't enough, I needed more. I needed to teach it and do other things. There were a few who shook their finger at me and called me unprofessional, though they never followed through and affirmed their judgement. After about a year of learning yoga, I began to teach un-certified. I made many great connections this way, and learned a lot about myself and others. I continued the momentum and was requested to teach acro yoga. I knew a little and within a few days I had a plethora of information, studied and then scheduled my first class. It was a hit. I continued my education and studied QiGong (translated from Mandarin as "Energy Work", or even more broken down, "Nothing-Fire Study"), Flow Art and different styles of dance.

It's a challenge to grow my gravity and gain attendance numbers, but growth is steady, my health is phenomenal, and my enthusiasm multiplies. I won't be giving up on this one, only continuing to expand. It's a thrill to bring joy into my life, as well as others; I love being of service to those who maybe don't believe in themselves. I'm excited to perform for you, I'm excited to be your guide back to the true you and the joyous life you may have never thought possible. This thing we call "reality" is just another dream moving at a different pace then our sleeping dreams. Learning to tap into one's consciousness and reconfigure patterns of thought that do not serve yourself nor others is the key to discovering a path full of excitement and fulfillment. I know and feel that you can do it because it is actually, believe it or not, the easier way. Commit to this life; commit to walking about space; and why not with a little flavor; a little style?

The time is always NOW. Your power is in the NOW. So do it, start living the life you've been dreaming about and take the next step; NOW.

Nothing says happiness like a smile full of corn starch.
