Nature, Is it Nice?

DSCF0563

Nature in its sheer, raw, primal power doesn’t seem “nice” (at least from our “human” standpoint) and will chew us up and spit us out…if we were to not take care of ourselves and each other…and it could do so anyway, regardless of all the care and planning we might take to survive and be in balance here on Earth.

It seems that in the frequency range of our human consciousness, I know that I like to (and perhaps most of us like to) anthropomorphize Nature, to relate to and give this powerful force human attributes. Thus, Mother Earth, Divine Mother, Heavenly Father, etc..etc.

And Nature/Spirit/God seems to show up for us in the forms that best suits our temperament. At least that is how it has been for me.

Otherwise, it can get too overwhelming when faced with such suffering, of our own or of the collective. To me it sometimes seems that Nature can be painfully impersonal, especially when dealing with intense physical or emotional pain.

In the realm of my own humanity, where I can feel love, bliss, sadness, pain, etc., It gives me great comfort to be able to relate to Nature from my own humanness, regardless of how much suffering can occur in Nature and how “inhuman” and even “cruel” Nature might seem to be.

However, I don’t think Nature is outside the bandwidth of our humanness. We love, hate, feel sadness, bliss…because it is in our “Nature” to do so…and from this perspective Nature can seem to be incredibly personal…and also very much like a great story that gives meaning to our world.

Does our story of Nature help us grow spiritually, or is it cause for contraction?

I seek to connect with those who, like me, feel they have been “charged” to hold and ground the Bliss Resonance for Mother Earth. Please contact me if you’d like to experience the ecstatic current in the spine. It is a free session that will be of great benefit for you whether we decide to work together or not. Contact me here if you’d like to: Connect With the Bliss Resonance

I will get back to you but please be sure to check your filtered mail as my email may get placed in your junk mailbox.

Entrainment With the Cosmic Dance

When we feel the pulse beat of the Mother flowing through our bodies, the river of surrender calls us to flow with all that is: pain, pleasure and everything in-between. I’ve been dealing with some intense sciatica pains over the last few weeks in my right leg, a result of too much chopping wood. Night after night, unable to sleep, having to get up and hobble around just to manage the pain! Something very interesting though: although I “felt” most severely the pain in my right leg, as I followed it internally to its source, it seemed to pulsate from the deepest center of my Being; and from there a strange question arose,  “What do you want?” Of course my immediate answer was “To be free of this blasted pain!” This was followed by another question, “Can you be ok with this?” With this request the body stood up and began to move in an awkward dance accompanied by my muffled sarcastic reply, “Do I have a choice?”

At three a.m. I was in no mood to ponder the infinite complexities of the cosmos nor the words that I just heard. I just wanted to go to sleep and be rid of pain! However, dancing across the floor of my yurt seemed somewhat bizarre and a bit alarming to my wife, who by this time wanted to take me to the hospital. I considered this option but did not want to interrupt the grotesque ballet being enacted. It occurred to me as I continued to witness this unusual tableau that the energetic wave moving through my body was some kind of Cosmic Dance of pain and pleasure. It seemed that the bliss energies in the spine that I had grown accustomed to were moving side-by-side with the intense physical pains as a way to release and balance out the energies in the affected areas. Perhaps writhing on the floor would have been a more “normal” reaction to the pain that I was feeling, but for some inexplicable reason, the dance had taken over, along with a number of mysterious vocalizations that made this episode all the more eerie.

I finally fell asleep at around 4:30am, not because the pain had subsided, but because I was exhausted. The body had to go through its dance of pain and no matter how much I desired a release from its grip, I was allowed only meager moments of respite. At some point during my cherished sleep, the question, “Can you be ok with this?” changed into “I’m ok with this.”  It went on automatically like a song sung feverishly with no thinking involved, just the sound vibrations moving through the body like little snakes darting in and around my hips and legs.

As I sit here now, a few weeks after having experienced the above story, the pain has subsided substantially and the leg is on the road to complete recovery; and yet the question, “Can you be ok with this?” continues to surface daily as a reminder of the pain and its call for me to dance with what may be most uncomfortable. I am reminded that certain repetitive movements of breath and body helps to move energy. It is not so much a matter of “practicing” techniques, but rather an allowing of the energy to “dance” in ways that it wishes to move.

It is all a play of energy, an allowing of the dance to move through and within the bodily field. The beautiful resonance of Love and Bliss are already in the field and it is just a matter of letting what is already within us entrain with the Cosmic Dance.

Bliss Consciousness: the Transmission

Certain positions of the body, combined with the internal “squeezing” of particular muscle groups generates unbelievable degrees of bliss sensations in the bodily field for those who are familiar with Kundalini energies. The awareness then naturally follows the vibration to deeper and deeper nuances of its expression. Like waves that come and go, yet the consciousness is ever aware of its connection with the Infinite Ocean!

It is so simple and yet understandable why this awareness eluded me for most of my life. Rather, I eluded it. I unconsciously shielded myself from the vast “feelings” implied, too outwardly preoccupied to look into the deep abyss of Self. It was easier to lose myself in the challenges of “surface” living, focusing on the day-to-day struggles and responsibilities, endeavoring to do my duty and dharma as any good citizen of the world would do. It was the default “nine-to-five” daily grind existence handed down to all of us by the predominant culture of a world mindset  that did not know how to connect with the deepest layers of the human psyche – let alone Bliss Consciousness.

There is no “technique” that needs to be “practiced.” The energy will do what it needs to do in order to clear out any impediment or blockage to bliss energy. The body then assumes certain positions of itself to intensify and magnetize the field of the spine and body. Our conscious part is to allow the energy to move as it wants to in the body in order to build up the  field of Kundalini. A gentle twisting or stretching of the spine may suffice, along with a deep listening and feeling for the subtle vibrations that accompanies every posture and movement. This blissful, cosmic vibration is the very river and ocean of Love, in all its power and subtlety! It is the dance of Creation moving through all bodies, singing through all Nature, in the stars and galaxies!

We miss its presence because we distract ourselves with the countless mental stories of our little daily dramas. We short-circuit our direct access to bliss through the culturally created belief that the connection with Spirit/Bliss is only for the saints and supermen/women. And so it is for lifetimes that we pass this belief down through the generations.

There is no difficulty in connecting with this great power. Any perceived difficulty lies only in our resistance to the depths of our feelings. We fear the ocean of Bliss, forgetful of our divine connection with its infinite waters. We are the Ocean! What seems so immense and vast and overwhelming within Nature is a reflection of the infinite depths of our Selves. We hide and lose ourselves in the drunkenness of forgetfulness, choosing to stay little because it is too scary to feel the vastness of our Cosmic Selves. It feels safer to be wrapped in the cocoon of smallness, more comfortable to remain in the “safety” of limitation. We equate “familiarity” with safety and security and then lose our way, haunted by the call of the Eternal Vastness, drowning its voice by magnifying our littleness, building edifices of beliefs that protect our narrow existence in a world that depends on the security of fight and struggle. And yet the transmission of light is available to all who would simply allow themselves to feel deeply and to embrace even that which may seem at first uncomfortable and unpleasant.

Feel! And then follow the sensations as they go deeper and deeper within, along the trail of subtlety. Understand that the heart is a most powerful instrument that can plumb the depths of the deepest realms of any dimension. We then follow the vibration to its most subtle and sublime realm.

This is the transmission: allowing ourselves to feel and follow the pathways of subtlety wherein lie the primal forces of Cosmic Energy. Our deep listening and feeling then becomes the teacher, the guru. This elemental force is conscious and creative and knows how to magnify itself in the bodily field. Again, there is no sense of “practicing” a technique, or following and believing in a particular religious path. Teacher, student, path, it all dissolves into the field of the divine play of Bliss that dances and expresses through the unique creation of our lives!

Kundalini Activation – What are the Dangers?

There seems to be quite a bit of concern regarding Kundalini activation in the body. Individuals ask if it can be dangerous if awakened abruptly or before the body and mind are prepared. I can only speak from my own experience. For me, the sensations in the spine came on very gently for me…so gently that I was not able to associate anything with it. It seemed strangely familiar, and quite pleasureable, but I did not know how to maintain it. I felt like I was walking on air for a couple of weeks or so…until it went away…for years.

Fast-forward many years later, never forgetting the experience and wistfully thinking that a door that had once opened itself to me was now impossibly shut. However, to my great joy and for reasons I will not get into quite yet, the sensations returned. This time around, I was able to follow and feel the intensity of the vibrations back to the spine. Oh…my…God! Again, the feelings began very gently, but then built up into a crescendo of convulsive contortions of the body accompanied by hissing breaths…and yet with unimaginable sensations of pleasure and bliss!

Getting back to the question regarding whether or not Kundalini activations can be dangerous… Well, I believe there can be a danger if the body is not physically healthy and pliable, because the amount of energy going through it is quite high. It would be like having a body that is fit for 100 watts, but 1000 watts of power is trying to surge through. I also believe it important to have emotional baggage cleared out, because stagnant or stuck energy in the body can be quite painful when the energy surge finds any type of blockage.

The energy has its own wisdom, and especially when Kundalini moves through the body, it knows what to do, taking up certain postures and breathing patterns without our having to direct its flow. It is very much like a serpent spirit in the body, moving and undulating, twisting and squeezing…

Oh, and something else to consider… I believe I missed Her (Kundalini) for years because of her subtle, in-the-background presence, like white noise that I paid little attention too. Something that might help: pay attention to the finest sensation that you can feel in the spine and allow the breath to build up the sensation. Allow the body to assume whatever position it needs to, to magnify the feelings in the spine. The breath and body posture is not something that you think about, it just happens.

Hope this helps. Also, the visual for me regarding what is happening in the spine is that of a microscopic thread of pleasurable vibration that is being pulled through the spinal cord while the body naturally assumes certain “locks” or positions. This is a way of literally “following your bliss.”

Kundalini Awakening – Connecting With Bliss Consciousness

Hold to the thread that leads within. The pathway is quite wide and it doesn’t take much to merge with the energetic stream of the bodily field that would take you to wondrous lands of mystery. Some may refer to this experience as “Kundalini Awakening,” while others may refer to it simply as “Bliss Consciousness.” Breathe in, relax and then exhale into the very ground of your Being. It is all there for you.

Relax the grip you have upon the narrow dimension of time that you find yourself in. There is so much that is dancing within. It is all a play of energy! Use this understanding to receive the next installment of your life’s lessons. What you may now consider to be worrisome or distracting is all fuel for your creativity. And this we ask: create everyday, whether in realms of writing, music, art or dance. Your path is about creating and manifesting energetic signatures of the heart.

What does this mean? 

When we speak of “signatures of the heart,” we speak of those vibrations that you know of already that seem to arise mysteriously from the realms of the heart and spine, the kundalini energy. While feeling deeply, the vibration goes out to your entire body and then into the “field of energy” surrounding the physical form.

Yes, it can be so delectable, pleasureable beyond imagination! Words that come to mind are: emanation, radiation, pulsation, serpent energy. And the feelings seem to originate in the areas nearest the spinal column. Thoughts drop away and the energy moves through the body, moving it (the body) in ways that allow for an even greater depth of feelings. Sometimes the body twists and contorts, as though squeezing the energy through every nook and cranny of the bodily cells. The physical movements of the body then become very serpent-like, undulating rhythmically. The sense I have of this is that the body and energetic field around it are adjusting to receive higher voltages of the blissful, creative energy. 

Yes, the physical body is being prepared and all of the shaking and rhythmic movements help to release toxins while upgrading your energetic frequency signal. As your resonant frequency shifts, so does your consciousness. This is why you are finding so many changes happening in your waking and sleeping states. The everyday “reality” can no longer be “business as usual.” The world that once seemed so real and solid is crumbling bit by bit. This no doubt has been pushing many of the fear buttons related to survival and sense of self.

The Earth is changing. The influx of higher energies have placed all creatures and things at the tipping point, like sands upon a cymatics plate, on the verge of shifting instantaneously into beautiful geometric patterns when frequencies reach certain levels. Likewise, your “reality” is at that point of radical change as your body, mind and heart continues to vibrate in resonance with higher and higher dimensions of the Cosmic Sound. Do not fight or resist what is wanting to be birthed during this time.

We are literally asking you to follow the stream of bliss that moves in the field of your body, sometimes delicately and sometimes in torrential streams of almost unbearable force. Know that it is all preparation for the next step in your unfoldment.

The sensations seem to originate in the spinal column, especially near the heart area between the shoulder blades. It takes just a little bit of sensitivity to connect with that subtle vibration.

As I sit here writing, the energy is felt as a steady emanation, as though a vibrating thread is being pulled through my spinal chord. The body then naturally moves in delicate, serpent-like undulations. I can think, write and continue the connection with this energy so long as part of my attention is in the spine. The muscles of my back and stomach/abdomen are slightly contracted as this seems to help “squeeze” the bliss energy through the spine. If I consciously relax all muscles and remain in total stillness, I feel the energy as a subtle radiation moving out to the thighs, arms, feet and hands. 

It is interesting that the body will automatically assume certain positions and postures that help the flow of energy. The movements that happen beforehand might be gyrations, twistings, contortions, shaking, etc. It is not painful, but rather incredibly blissful. The expenditure of energy can be quite high though and the breath finds its own pattern, depending on the posture or movement.

The kundalini energy is quite mysterious when it is activated in the body. When that vibration is awakened in an individual, it changes them at a fundamental level: the river of bliss then streams out in all that they do. They may forget their connection at times, but the thread of kundalini that has been turned on in the spine will always serve as a beacon to call him/her back to the blissful awareness of Spirit.

Awakening to the Medicine Wheel of Your Own Power

You are awakening to the medicine wheel of your own power and no longer need the lessons of stagnation and feeling stuck to get you to move forward. Move ahead with confidence towards the dreams you have and shake the world with your knowing! The heart is opening up to reveal the gifts you have been born with; and there is a growing sense of clarity and direction as you walk the path you are meant to travel.

The World is in need of individuals stepping more and more into their own light. Do your part to help. The unfoldment happens as a manifestation of intentions and not from a position of fear. Isn’t it interesting that you cannot now see the details of all the changes that are ahead of you in the months ahead, but all will unfold in its own time as you tune yourself to the voice of wisdom and as you learn to harness the resonant fields of sound and vibration to manifest your dreams. As you increase the power and frequency of your own vibration, you can help the relative vibration of any environment you choose to be in. Send your intentions out on energetic waves of intention, on waves of harmonics!

You are ready to understand the mysteries of both darkness and light. The path is opening up. Drop all stubborn attachments to what is considered “real” and “unreal.” When veils are lifted, the life you live and move in will seem no more than a dream.

The connections you have with the present existence is mostly through mind and senses. As you drop the veils and attachments to mind and mind fluff, worlds upon worlds open up to you; and as you peer into the inner landscape, you will find patterns in the “external” waking consciousness reflecting more and more the patterns that swirl within. The spiral and circle of the great Medicine Wheel then comes to awaken and release the long-restricted “Beast” of freedom and creativity!

Accessing the River of Creativity – Calm Awareness

Creativity as spoken about in the following dialog with Higher Self is about allowing a space within ourselves to let energy flow unimpeded. Creating everyday may be a matter of just getting up and going for a walk around the block or around the park, feeling the energy in our bodies move and connect harmoniously with the environment; feeling ourselves as part of the Creative Ocean expressing through our walk.

Creativity may also be about moving through the workplace with calm awareness, noticing the feelings and thoughts as they arise, not losing ourselves in any drama that may play out during the day. It is about staying in that place of clarity or Presence wherein the Consciousness enjoys itself in the fullness of the moment.

You are never far from the Source of Inspiration that can radically change your circumstances for the better. Allow it to do its work. Create everyday! The momentum of energy and mind can propel you towards dimensions of discovery and learning that will take your breath away!

Relax and breathe deeply into the vision
you hold within. It’s not enough to just stay in shallow waters. Go deep, plumb the depths of what is there for you in the most subtle regions of consciousness. If you find yourself out of the flow of awareness, it’s just a matter of dropping back into the movement of the energetic river. Listen on the inside, relax and then once again observe quietly, without grasping or forcing. Do not fight or force! Relax and observe. Feel the resonance of all that plays within and around you.

Move gracefully, as the vibratory Being
that you are. Enter into the flow of what is already moving and that is connected with the Creative Source. Listen, be aware and allow. You will then slip gently into sublime levels of awareness.

Awaken from moment to moment. As you melt into the Cosmic Stream, the awareness of Self expands to include all things. Feel now what wishes to express from the deepest Source. The Breath of Creativity is an Ocean of wonder that has no limitation. Its waves expand in all directions, forever moving and creating. Your true home is in this Ocean. Make use of the gifts you were meant to express and manifest. There is no aspect of Creation you cannot explore. As the Ocean meets Sky upon the horizon, so will your Heart meet Omnipresence upon the horizon line of calm awareness!
