Beyond Duality

Lisa-Raphael - Soul-PortraitHumanity is on the brink of an important paradigm shift. We are gradually shifting from old dualistic ways of thinking to a new paradigm, which transmutes the separation between light and darkness, between, good and evil, between us and them. In duality consciousness it is me OR you, us OR them. In beyond duality consciousness it is me AND you, us AND them. When we accept all aspects of life without judgment, we transform the separations that lead to personal, social and international conflict.

Beyond duality consciousness is not the same as Non Duality consciousness, although they may be experienced similarly. In Non Duality, we release our attachment to physical form, go into an altered or out of body consciousness, and experience our physical and energetic bodies as separate from one another. Although out of body consciousness is not dualistic, unless we see our energetic and physical bodies as part of a greater whole, the perceived separation between them becomes another duality. In Beyond Duality consciousness, there is no Higher Self or Lower Self. There is just ONE Self that includes all aspects of life.

The challenges of Beyond Duality consciousness with regard to the dualities of Spirituality and Religion, Intuition and Channeling, Love and Fear, Authority and Morality, Life and Money are addressed on Lisa’s call-in shows archived at


Experience Beyond Duality consciousness through this guided meditation



I recently dreamed that I found myself in totally unfamiliar territory with all my documents, keys and cards gone. There was no earthly way to identify myself. Yet rather than feeling fearful, I felt strangely free.

Our ID, our Id-entity is a grand illusion. A lifeless thing composed of conscious and unconscious conditioning  through fear of not being loved or accepted if we do not comply with familial, social, cultural or religious rules and beliefs.

Who we are is beyond definition.

I first experienced my Beingness  beyond identity- the void – twenty five years ago at the Grand Canyon. Sitting quietly off the path, absorbed in the changing shadows over the canyon, time stopped. It was not until I began to feel chilled that I realized I had been there for several hours. When I got up I felt I had been truly seen for the first time in my life. Somehow, in the silence, in the absence of thought, feeling, motion or human contact, I had made contact with my Self.

My path since then has taken me many unfamiliar places where I have been unknown. The challenge is to be my authentic SELF without getting trapped in the illusion that these FORMS of identification – including this website- define who I am.

I am not alone in this dilemma. More and more of us are awakening to a larger reality while needing to function within the matrix of cultural norms. Living off the grid physically is technologically possible. Living free of the matrix of conscious and unconscious attachment to our socially defined identity is an ongoing challenge.
