Four Levels of Reality

  • Scientific/Physical: Everything is objective and factual. We are bound by physical, scientific laws.
  • Subjective/Psychic: All things are connected, the world is defined not only by facts but by psychic and/or telepathic experiences
  • Symbolic/Shamanic/Dream: All of our experiences can be viewed and interpreted as symbolic, as a dream.
  • Holistic/Mystical: Everything in the universe is one. Everything is made up of energy, and all energy is connected.

Three Selves

  • Ku: The subconscious
  • Lono: The conscious mind
  • Kane (or Aumakua): The superconscious or “higher self.”
