    Masterclass How Consciousness is Born. 6 Steps from the Quantum Supra-Conscious to the Conscious: Part 1

    Masterclass How Consciousness is Born. 6 Steps from the Quantum Supra-Conscious to the Conscious: Part 1

    Do you ever wonder where consciousness comes from? When an idea suddenly falls into your head, where did it originate? That aha moment... what brought it on?

    As conscious beings we are aware of our thoughts, our experiences and phenomena around us. But what lies behind the curtain of our perception? If consciousness is the outer tip of the iceberg, what does the iceberg look like? Can we access it?

    Understanding the supra-conscious and how it impacts our lives is not simply an academic, psychological or even philosophical discussion. It affects all our activities and encounters, which are the surface expression of these subliminal forces within.

    Our memories and experiences -- our traumas and joys, from the youngest age -- whether we are aware of them or not, are all embedded into our psyche. These forces, even if deeply buried and concealed, impact your external life experiences - your fears, your joys, your attractions, your repulsions. Every past experience will inform your future experiences. Especially ones that engage your vulnerabilities and emotions. Thus, peering behind the scenes into your inner workings, can help you gain some understanding and mastery of your outer reactions.

    The bridge between the supra-conscious and the conscious can also help expand the flow of your creative juices. Discovering how creativity is born - ideas, innovations - is critical to living your most successful life and actualizing your potential.

    So understanding how consciousness is born and its earliest roots, can help us revisit the source -- the engine room of supra-consciousness -- to perhaps charge and rewire our underlying neurons, to fire on new cylinders.

    Please join Rabbi Jacobson in this revolutionary talk as he deciphers a 16th century kabbalistic text in the Pardes of the great mystic, R' Moshe Kordevoro, describing the metamorphosis from the quantum supra-conscious to the conscious. Take a journey through the six steps of this fascinating process -- from the very conception of consciousness in their undefined, nebulous states, traveling along as these states take form and become more crystallized, ultimately evolving into the defined state of consciousness that we are aware of. Discover how to unlock your psyche, spread your wings, your channels and horizons, experience higher states of consciousness -- and how to integrate that into your conscious life and relationships.

    What You See Is Not Always What You Get

    What You See Is Not Always What You Get

    Vision is one of our most powerful senses. It impacts every aspect of our lives. It has the power to stimulate, captivate, mesmerize and seduce us -- for good or for not -- in overwhelming ways. And yet, how much of reality do we actually see? What percentage of the bigger picture do our eyes of flesh perceive?

    Indeed, considering all the different existing forms of manipulation and deception, our eyes can be led to believe all types of distortions and falsities. Behind a smile may lie an enemy. A sugarcoated candy can conceal poison within. Life is fraught with dark secrets lurking beneath the surface. What you see is not always what you get. Don't judge a book by its cover may be one of the most fallacious cliches.

    Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson on a journey plumbing the depths of reality, traveling into dimensions beneath and beyond our sensory tools. Learn how to recognize the limits and parameters of your instruments of perception, explore how to opens these doors and peer into the inner workings of your psyche and existence. Discover how to experience higher states of consciousness, and most amazing of all: How to use your senses to access the suprasensory, express the inexpressible, see the invisible, and transform your defined structures into springboards of transcendence.

    Is Social Media Making Us Less Social

    Is Social Media Making Us Less Social

    Are social media and technology improving your personal life? Are they enhancing your relationships?

    With all of technology's breathtaking advancements, connecting us in unprecedented ways, why do we feel more disconnected than ever? Despite the thousands of "friends" we may have on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tiktok, why have we not become closer and more intimate? People today, perhaps more than ever, feel disoriented and are experiencing deep alienation; a crisis in relationships and intimacy. How do we explain this paradox: A world both connected and disconnected like never before?

    Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson for this important conversation and learn how the true challenge is not how to look at technology but how to look at yourself. Discover how to reclaim your life and take control of technology, instead of letting it control you. Explore what social media is doing to us and what we can do to use its benefits and gifts to advance and grow our personal lives and relationships.

    How to Warm Your Soul in a Cold World

    How to Warm Your Soul in a Cold World

    Do we live in a beautiful world or an ugly one?

    I will never forget a conversation I had with two individuals. We were talking about life.

    One of the people began sharing, in a very warm and kind way, the beautiful life she grew up in. Her loving home, a supportive family, a welcoming community; her childhood and journey into adulthood was filled with light, warmth, nobility and dignity.

    The other person joined the conversation expressing how he grew up in an entirely different universe! His life was one of trauma and pain. A hostile home, angry family, disconnected community; his childhood and journey into adulthood was filled with darkness, backstabbing, narcissism and selfishness.

    His description brought me to tears.

    I started to think about this contrast, how every person has a different perspective on life based on their different experiences. To some this world is warm, open, inviting. And to others it's cold, hostile and isolating.

    No doubt, over the course of our lives most of us experience both beautiful times and sometimes ugly ones. But how do you perceive the world as a whole? Do you wake up to a loving world, ready to absorb its warmth and fly with the angels? Or do you wake up to a mean world, ready to brace the cold and battle demons?

    Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson in this life-changing talk, and discover that despite the darkness, coldness and hostility often surrounding us, we have the inner resources to warm and illuminate not only ourselves but others as well. We are not products or victims of circumstance. At our core and essence we are bright and soaring souls, sent to a dark and cold universe, with the innate power to transform and create a beautiful world, no matter the challenges.

    Do You fear Change

    Do You fear Change

    Life is replete with change. Processes, transitions, maturation, growth and setbacks -- life is synonymous with movement, and movement is all about change. The journey of life with all its twists and turns, and ups and downs.

    Why then are we afraid of change? And if you fear change it's inevitable that it will play a major role and impact every juncture of your life (whether you know it or not). Every transition from one state to another -- every new unknown -- will trigger fear and impede your progress. It will compromise your choices and commitments (how can I commit when I'm afraid of what will be?). And being that nothing in life ever stays the same, this inertia would be quite often!

    Going even further, all growth by definition is a form of change; it's going out of one state, one paradigm and growing into another paradigm. If one is overwhelmed by change - this is preventing all growth in life.

    We all have to thus ask ourselves the critical question. Do I fear change? And what can I do about it? Because if you don't mitigate it, this fear of change will keep you from making any move in life. Whether you want to grow and climb to greater heights, or whether you're stuck in a bad relationship, a bad job, a bad state of mind, your fear of change will keep you stuck in the status quo. (As they say: the known evil is better than the unknown one.) The fear will paralyze you and not let you move, not let you grow.

    Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson as he dissects the anatomy of fear, and specifically fear of change. Learn how instability, insecurity and lack of trust lies at the heart of the fear of change. By identifying its root causes we discover its antidote -- how to overcome and counter fear and how to embrace change in your life so that you can navigate the vicissitudes of life and be free to spread your wings, grow and be the best you can be.

    How to Make this the BEST Year Yet

    How to Make this the BEST Year Yet

    As the curtain comes down on the year 2022 and we prepare for the new year of 2023, we all wish for each other and for our loved ones a very blessed new year. A year filled with joy, happiness, inner peace and world peace; a year of serenity, success and the fulfillment of all our hearts desires, all in good health and in a very obvious and revealed way.

    The intentions for an amazing, transformative and accomplishing year are there. We all want it, dream it, long for it and aim for it.

    But the big question is how? How do we make our dreams a reality? How do we ensure that we indeed have a great year? We all know that new year comes and goes; previous years have proven that we can make resolutions with great intentions and positive goals but then we see them dissipate... they can often last one day, two days, or even a full week! But slowly the inspiration begins to wane and we find ourselves right back where we started.

    Many new years have come and gone and we haven't necessarily experienced real change.

    Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson and learn how to change that narrative! Discover what you can actually do to make this year the best possible year yet. Learn about the forces that hold us back from growth, and the key tools necessary to counter that inertia, and be the change in your life - for yourself, your family, your friends and the entire world at large.
