Tuning Into the Subtlety of Sensations, Part III

Again, there is no difficulty in connecting with the blissful life force, the subtle underlying Hum of Creation! If there is any difficulty, it is in the mind’s resistance to simply consider sensations and state of being that are not in the realm of the day-to-day, habitual patterns of thinking and feeling.

It is just a matter of feeling and following sensations to their point of subtlety in the body. This automatically draws the mind deeply within. The ego (familiar sense of self) may, in the beginning, wonder “Why am I doing this? What’s the big deal in following sensations to their point of subtlety? I have better things to do!” Or, the mind may object that connecting with the Bliss Resonance is only for the superhuman saints.

Getting past the resistance to “just start” is perhaps the greatest challenge though. The only other important part of connecting with the subtle currents of life force is in the noticing the small, incremental shifts in awareness and consciousness that occur while feeling deeply within. Note, the shifts happen very quickly.

By learning to notice small shifts in awareness, it sets different patterns and habits of mind to go deeper and deeper into the subtlety of sensations…and by tuning into subtlety, the awareness of the wider, underlying life force can be experienced as an expansive reverberation of oceanic Bliss!

Tuning Into the Subtlety of Sensations, Part II

With just a little bit of introspection, we can observe in our lives how easily it is for the mind to be “captured” by distractions of habits, thought patterns, addictions, anger, moodiness, desires, likes/dislikes, etc.

Conversely, habits of mind also makes it easy for us to go through our day-to-day activities…and it can even make difficult tasks easy to do. The power of the mind to create patterns and habits that benefit our lives is a great positive in our lives.

In our day-to-day life, our “normal,” default existence is governed by habit patterns (both helpful and detrimental) formed over a lifetime. As for the detrimental patterns, it is easy to feel helpless in the face of what may seem like uncontrollable forces at work, keeping us enslaved to the very habits/patterns that we ourselves created, allowing the powers of mind to create the very patterns/habits that we now decry.

Is there a way to understand and utilize these powers in ways that are more in alignment with our Higher Selves? Understand that underneath the activity/movement of mind there is an underlying vibration/hum out of which arises the mind. This vibration can be felt as a sensation that draws the mind’s attention deeply within. This sensation, when followed to its point of subtlety in the spine, also connects the awareness with what feels like a vast resonance that surrounds the energetic field of the body, the very life force of creation.

There is no difficulty in experiencing the subtlety of life force. Sometimes it is just a mere lack of considering or acknowledging the sensitivity that we already have. We’ve grown comfortable with the patterns and habits of our default existence and do not consider that there are infinite subtleties and nuances that can be easily felt/experienced…if only we allowed ourselves to do so!

By simply noticing and following the overall sensations of the body to their point of subtlety, we begin to feel an underlying vibration that naturally draws the mind/attention deeply within…and by its very nature is blissful.

It is this “Hum” of Creation, the Bliss Resonance that can hold the mind in the “vice-grip” of rapture, in the energetic contortion that is created in the body.

Tuning into the Subtlety of Sensations, Part I

The mind easily recognizes familiar objects (patterns) in its environment, all the things it has come to “know.” However, it can also easily fall into habitual/addictive patterns of thinking and doing, ones not necessarily beneficial to itself.

Mind can be thought of as a pattern generator and pattern recognizer. Understand that different patterns of behavior and thinking can just as easily be created, ones that are more in alignment with Higher Self.

By observing/noticing the mind (as in meditation), it is fairly easy to “see” or understand that the mind has layers upon layers of “noticing.” There is the superficial noticing of the environment and things in it, including our bodies. There is the noticing of thinking, of desires, feelings, likes/dislikes, etc. There is also the noticing of our sense of self, of our “I-ness,” the one who experiences.

Along with this type of superficial observing/noticing (which is easily taken for granted), there can also be a noticing of circumstances in our lives that seem to be out of our control or understanding, oftentimes in the areas of relationships, health, finances. It could seem like there are forces at work below the radar of our knowing that create havoc in our lives.

For these unseen and “dark” forces, we think of as being part of our “unconscious” or “subconscious.” We are able to observe or notice these forces through the effects that they have in our lives. Is it possible to observe these forces directly, to bring them into the light of the conscious?

Just below the superficial noticing of our environment, body, thoughts/feelings and sense of self, when we direct our attention inwardly to the underlying sensations and feelings, there is a noticing of the overall vibration. And just below this vibration, when one is fairly relaxed and quiet, there can be felt a subtle “feel good” feeling/sensation (akin to light giddiness)…and observed/felt underneath this are sensations that seem to initiate coiling/twisting/squeezing reverberations that express in the spine and body through “micro movements.”

This is a very different kind of relationship that can be experienced with our sense of self, with our life force…an awareness that is quite different from what we’ve grown familiar with.

Feeling into the subtleties of vibrations/sensations, as felt deeply in the body, is a practice we may not have truly understood, even through all the meditation and somatic exercises we’ve engaged in.

There is a simplicity in just feeling deeper and deeper into body sensations…and yet the power and beauty of this way of being with life energy is missed because of some mechanism of mind that has a way of short-circuiting our noticing what is just below the threshold of what we’ve come to consider “normal” and “familiar.”

It is the finest of barriers, because the body is rife with sensations, both obvious and subtle. By the mere tuning into subtle sensations and following deeper and deeper into the body and spine, an opening is created in our understanding and knowingness that…FINALLY… allows us to explore vibrations outside the range of what we’ve been accustomed to.

This simple allowing of ourselves to just feel deeply (below the obvious superficial sensations) is monumental as it represents a vastly different relationship with our life force, one that is not fenced in by the narrow spectrum of experience that had become our default pattern of existence.

Contortions of the Bliss Resonance, Part II

If you’re not feeling the depths of meditation (and of Kundalini) that you would like access to, latch onto the inner, subtle sensations that can easily be felt in the area just between the shoulder blades. Feel into and focus there on the overall sensation, even if it is the mildest of vibrations….as small as a “mustard seed.”

As you tune into that area, notice how the simple act of listening and feeling draws the mind/attention inwards, creating a relaxed inner focus. With this inner focus comes a widening of awareness, which may include the underlying overall vibration, the “Hum of Creation.”

It is important to acknowledge this inner shift of mind, acknowledging your ability to track and follow very fine subtleties of inner sensations. It is the very gentle and fine “feel good” feeling that is just beneath the overall sensation that is what you want to latch onto. This “feel good” feeling can be the subtlest of feelings, but by the very act of focusing on it, it expands…and this is when you will experience the blissful nectar-like quality of this vibration.

Kundalini Hum of Creation, Part V

Do you get the meaning of what is meant in the sentiment of listening to music “so beautiful that it hurts?” That puts you into a swoon? Entranced, dissolved in tears?

There is an invitation that is offered in this kind of music to the deepest places of inspiration. All that is required is an openness to listen to and feel for the subtleties of the music that has “captured” your heart.

As you feel and dissolve into the music, you may find wave after wave of delicious sensations rolling through the body…and especially the spine! There is then a natural, primal movement of the energy (life force) that creates a kind of “contortion” of the body that is an overflowing of bliss. The experience can be on the spectrum of gentle to orgasmic.

The play of this energy is very much like dance…an ecstatic dance and play with the atoms/molecules of finest waves of the underlying Bliss Resonance, the Source of what entrances and puts you in the swoon through the music you listen to.

It’s just a matter of following the sensations of inspiration that are created by the music to its deepest Source, the “Hum of Creation!”

Kundalini Hum of Creation, Part III

Notice the workings of the mind, how it seeks engagement with “objects” of attention, how it moves from point to point, thought to thought, feeling to feeling, etc. By the sheer act of noticing and observing, we get a glimpse of thoughts, feelings, etc. as they arise in the moment…and the whole purpose and benefit of this is to have an experience of the underlying “Hum,” the background resonance of the overall vibration of all that is experienced in the moment.

Notice how the mind, when not intentionally and actively engaged on anything in particular will float haplessly from thought to thought, feeling to feeling, etc. and is easily caught in the thralldom of restlessness, agitation, boredom, desires.

Mind/body/psyche is easily affected and influenced by the vibratory environment it finds itself in, whether by choice or happenstance. It is important to notice and acknowledge the subtle shifts of mind…especially between mind that consciously observes and mind that floats haplessly. In this way, it is easier have the clarity and resolve to choose the mindful state (which grants deep calmness, focus, sense of wholeness).

Tune in quickly with the underlying sensations that are easily felt as an overall resonance of feelings…like listening for the background noise or hum deep within the body. There is no difficulty in doing this! It is just a matter of allowing ourselves to feel deeply!

You may then notice that when the mind is deeply in listening and feeling mode, the thoughts slow down or may even come to a still point (even if for an instant). In that moment, you may have an experience with very fine micro-movements of sensations…with the Bliss Resonance!

In that moment your relationship with life force, with your way of Being, is shifted forever!

To be continued.

Kundalini Hum of Creation, Part II

IMG_0039

What is meant by the “Hum of Creation?”

As you continue your approach of tuning into finer and more subtle sensations within, you will begin to experience vibrations/sensations that are vastly different from those that you have been familiar with and “taken for granted.” In other words, because we have not allowed ourselves to feel deeply and to follow the trail of sensations to their very Source, we’ve cut ourselves off from subtle vibratory realms that have always been available to us.

The approach and idea is simple: focus upon and follow sensations to their point of subtlety. And what sensation do we follow? The overall resonance of all that we feel in the moment. You might notice that with this approach the “overall resonance” of feelings resolves to an awareness of its center point…a very subtle bubbling up sensation in the spine, or central core of the body.

There may also be an extremely fine awareness of a background/underground vibration/sensation/rumbling/resonance/radiance that seems to serve as a kind of support strata or “screen” upon which our experience of subtlety bubbles up from.

This background screen can be apprehended by the ego (our sense of self), but there is also a sense (intuited) of the wider “Observer” that is impersonal.

The little self seems to play on the surface of the wider, more expansive, unlimited “Self.”

The background resonance, when tuned into begins to “bleed” through into our familiar day-to-day awareness, and its subtle (but powerful) vibration affects the body/mind/psyche by an intense infusion of energy.

The body/mind/psyche goes into a swoon/contortion…along with an awareness of the “Impersonal Observer.”
