What is Keala Rafana Ministry Of Sound And Source?
Keala Rafana is A Metaphysical Ministry of Consciousness. Keala Rafana means “the way of healing now” From Keala in Hawaiian meaning “the way”and Rafana in Hebrew/Aramaic meaning “healing now”. Hawaii and Ancient Hebrew hold special meaning for our founders
Why are we a metaphysical ministry?
Metaphysics is the scientific study of consciousness, existence, and reality, exploring the questions about who we are, where we came from, and how we fit in. It is a way of looking at the seen and unseen realms through present moment awareness and timeless wisdom teachings. These wisdom teachings have been around since the dawn of humanity. Religion, like theoretical Physics and any theoretical study is metaphysical in nature, but metaphysics is more about how we view and seek to understand the Cosmos, rather than simply a religion of god. Our connection to our essence, to our divinity, is uniquely personal and therefore no definition of that divinity can be provided. Our work is to Remember Who We Are, and that is divinity. So the term ministry fits for our purposes. The journey to see the conditioning that holds us back from our divinity can and should be explored in a community. In community we support each other to be our authentic self, and connect to the great mystery.
What Is the root of our suffering?
Underneath everything we see in physical reality is a great mystery that has puzzled humanity for a very long time. Because of this puzzle we have created stories to make sense of the mystery. We have studied it with science to find god in order to prove it does or does not exist. We have fought wars over whose ideology holds the truth. Who is right and who is wrong? The struggles facing humanity today seem insurmountable. Our systems and institutions have conditioned us so far away from our divine essence that we have lost the connection to each other, to life, and ultimately to divinity. We are divided and conquered by these systems and institutions. This is a part of the root of our human suffering.
How did we forget who we are?
Each of us is born whole and complete, awake, conscious, and aware. Over time, the conditioning we receive from generation after generation of unconsciousness imparted through family and culture creates a conflict in us. Since we were not seen, validated, and acknowledged for who we are, we got the message that our true nature was unacceptable. In the light of this we contorted our authentic selves, and created masks, an ego or false self to fit the mold laid out for us and hide our authentic self. We suffer.because we have not been seen, validated, and acknowledged as the divinity we are, and instead pressed to fit into a mold not made for us. Unworthiness manifests in all kinds of self defeating and self limiting behavior. Once completely connected to source and divinity when we arrived, this conditioning pushes us further and further from our divinity by telling us it is outside of us. Our work in the world is to wake up to this conditioning, heal our wounded child, and restore our connection to source energy and divinity.
What is this Great Mystery anyway?
How do we Remember who we are?We remember who we are by relentlessly and doggedly deconstructing our conditioning into belief systems that are not true. By recognizing the impermanent and unpredictable nature of reality, we know that any attachment to how it is, how it looks, or how it goes is ultimately going to cause suffering. Birth in the human world one journeys into a world of varying degrees of unconsciousness. One layer to that unconsciousness is the complete ignore-ance of the reality of our divinity as emanations of pure source energy.
Discovering or remembering our authentic self is a process of deconstructing our conditioning.To begin, we learn to discern what is our conditioning and what is our authentic self. We like to say: If it isn’t love it isn’t me! If my thoughts are not loving or supportive I know they are coming from my wounding. Next we learn how to tap into our inner knowing through present moment awareness. We meditate, ground, and cultivate patience. Next we observe the mind, and practice deep inner listening. We do this so we can hear our authentic self. Then we identify the fears and limiting beliefs our conditioning and wounding dictates. As a result, all forms of negative self-talk, fear and limiting beliefs begin to melt away in the light of truth, presence, and awareness. In this incredibly safe and nurturing container, there is opportunity for transformation. In this space we heal because we address the wounds and release the masks of ego. Through simple practices of breath we take on the personal work of revealing and acknowledging our authentic self. We pull the scabs off of our festering childhood wounds so they may properly heal. We become the parent to our own wounded self allowing us to grow In the beginning, deconstructing and unwinding our conditioning is tricky. The ego, hiding the wounded one within, is clever. It is easy at first to be fooled by our masks of ego. In light of this, this work is well supported by a circle.
Can you relate to these reasons why people like you are here?
- There are repeating patterns throughout my life that hold me back.
- I battle the same negative thoughts and limiting beliefs that I have battled forever.
- I have tried self help books, retreats, psychedelics, and therapy. I still find myself drifting back into old patterns.
- The pain of my past affects my life every day. I worry that my past will be my future and obsess about it.
- I have had some kind of an awakening and I question beliefs and institutions I used to trust. It is shaking me to the core.
- I am waking up, but I come from fundamentalism and need a safe place to land outside of that. Since I am questioning the very things they believe, I can’t speak about this with my family and I doubt my friends would understand . There is no one I feel safe to speak to about it.
- I need help unpacking and integrating a transformational spiritual experience into my life and I don’t know where to go.
- I seek guidance and support to strengthen my inner wisdom and inner voice because I am weary of the feeling that everyone else knows something that I do not.
- I’m lost and I don’t know where to begin to find out who I am, I’m stuck and I’m suffering.
