There are seven magic words in the Self Realization Mantra (three of them are repeated four times). These seven words spoken as sixteen constitute the entirety of the Self Realization Mantra.
*** Please pronounce ‘thee’ correctly, with a long e sound. Do not pronounce thee as ‘thuh.’***
The first 2 lines of this mantra were revealed to David Dreamwalker Diamondheart by spirit at 5AM Arizona Time on Monday February 26th, 2018. Prior to this divine revelation, he was in deep meditation focusing on the question “Who am I?” which was given to him by Ananta, a self realized being who lives in Tucson, Arizona. Ananta is a disciple of Baba Muktananda, Gurumayi and Ramesh Balsekar. David met Ananta shortly after moving to Tucson in April of 2016.
During one of Ananta’s Satsangs (a spiritual discourse involving a short presentation or speech followed by Q&A), David shared that he was having difficulty meditating and asked Ananta to recommend a mantra or a focus for his meditation. Ananta suggested that David contemplate the nature of his true self and focus on who he really is during meditation. “Who are you?” he asked.
David followed this suggestion by using the question “Who am I?” as a mantra, saying it over and over for 4 1/2 straight hours and then he stopped and waited in silence for an answer. Spirit gave him the answer in the form of the first 2 lines of the Self Realization Mantra. Spirit moved on David and he spoke those 8 words and as he said them, he heard the words “Iself” and “Allself” for the first time. David began chanting these first 2 lines of the Self Realization Mantra over and over and had his Allself awakening at around 2PM on February 26th, 2018.
The answer to the question “Who am I?” only makes sense in relationship to the question “What am I?” The answer to the question “What am I?” is consciousness.
Consciousness has 4 distinct aspects and these four aspects are the answer to the question “Who am I?” You are the Iself (unknown known), the Allself (known known), the Godself (known unknown) and the Noself (unknown unknown).
What is the Self?
The Self is an individual person as the object of his or her own reflective consciousness. This reference is necessarily subjective, thus self is a reference by a subject to the same subject. The self as discussed on this site speaks to both a personal 1st person self and a much broader and more expansive universal self.
What is the Iself? In the context of this mantra, the Iself is the individual self. It is your personal subjective experience of being you (aka your egoic self). The Iself is your sense of individuation and is based upon your body, your relationships, your possessions, your worldview, your life story, your preferences and all of the things that differentiate you from other people and form your sense of personal identity.
What is individuation? From Wikipedia "Individuation is a process of transformation whereby the personal and collective unconscious are brought into consciousness (e.g., by means of dreams, active imagination, or free association) to be assimilated into the whole personality. It is a completely natural process necessary for the integration of the psyche. - Carl Jung"
Many spiritual traditions and “new age” thinking state that this Iself is only an illusion. In an absolute sense, it is, but while you are incarnated on this planet, it is very real, although fleeting and changing from moment to moment. The Iself is a fluid act of improvisation. The Iself is the unknown known aspect of consciousness also known as the Somethingness.
What is the Allself? In the context of this mantra, the “Allself” is the universal self or cosmic consciousness. The Allself is the everywhere, the everywhen, the everything and the everybody. The Allself is the cosmic consciousness that is busy being everybody doing everything including being “you.” We are not separate from the universe within which we find ourselves. We are all connected to each other and we are all connected to the singular field of consciousness that permeates all of creation. The Allself is eternal and unchanging. The Allself is the known known aspect of consciousness also known as the Everythingness.
Another way to visualize the Allself
The Upanishads of Hinduism hold that the individual has the same essence and reality as the objective universe, and this essence is the finest essence; the individual soul is the universal soul, and Atman is the same reality and the same aesthetics as the Brahman.
For 460 days these first 2 lines were all that were revealed to David. The first 2 lines of the Self Realization Mantra constitute version 1 and all 4 lines together are the full Self Realization Mantra.
The last 2 lines of this mantra were revealed to David Dreamwalker Diamondheart at 9 PM on Friday May 31st, 2019.
What is the Godself?
The Godself is the energy of the eternal or the divine. The Godself is the power of creation. The Godself is beyond comprehension and transcendent. The Godself is the spark of creation that I am/we are. The Godself is the powers of manifestation and the flow of creativity. It is the divine warm light that makes anything possible. The Godself is unconditional love in its most natural state. The Godself is the known unknown aspect of consciousness also known as the Beyondness.
There is a separate Godself Realization Mantra.
What is the Noself?
The Noself is akin to the void. It has no sense of self at all and exists as pure potential. It is the “canvas” upon which all of physicality is manifested. All of us have experienced embodiment of the Noself. Small children are born without a separate sense of self. During early childhood, children start to develop a “self-concept,” the attributes, abilities, attitudes and values that they believe define them. By age 3, (between 18 and 30 months), children have developed their Categorical Self, which is a concrete way of viewing themselves in terms of “this or that” and “me and mine” labels. Before the development of a separate sense of self, small children lack subject/object orientation in relation to themselves and this is why most people do not have any significant memories of themselves as a small child. The Noself is the unknown unknown aspect of consciousness also known as the “great” Nothingness.
