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.”

Kundalini Dance of Subtlety Part II

Part I of “Kundalini Dance of Subtlety” can be accessed here

Mother Kundalini

Mother Kundalini

I think that it’s kind of ironic that, for me, Kundalini did not activate for me until having dropped my strong attachments to meditation techniques, as well as leaving an ashram that I lived as a monk for 19 years.

For me, releasing the strong “matrix” of spiritual community and “group think” created an inner feeling of “free-fall,” having nothing to stand on, or hold onto…which then offered me intimations of primal and chaotic sensations/energies moving through my body and psyche.

A few years after having left the ashram, I began singing, vocalizing in very unusual ways: throat singing (similar to Mongolian and Tibetan styles). Singing in this way came very quickly and easily for me. The subtleties of vocal overtones helped me to disconnect my thinking and any stories that would normally go round and round in my head (sadness, grief, etc.)

So many layers of density, of sadness and grief have had to be released/purged in the intervening years (since 2001). Kundalini, in the form of the Mother came to me in 2009. I felt/thought that she was extremely shy. She turned to me three times, without saying anything, beckoning me to follow her into my spine. I intuited immediately and felt her as Kundalini.

I’m glad that there is a mental concept/philosophy such as Kundalini. Otherwise, I might think that I was going a little (or maybe a lot) crazy. It gives my mind something to “chew” on in the sense that my mind seems to go ‘round and ‘round if it cannot make sense of something.

Kundalini, to me, is so far out there, wild, crazy, primal, maddening, blissful, that the mind seems to be right on the borderline of sanity and insanity! I now feel quite safe with Her in the sense of having learned to navigate very strange mental/physical/emotional/spiritual landscapes of Being. It still feels though like being in a world where veils are getting thinner and thinner.

With the onset of Kundalini there has also been times of simply ENDURING…during certain times when no amount of meditation, positive thinking, calling for help seems to ease physical/mental/spiritual suffering. Perhaps it does, but my meaning here is that there seems to be times when we get so “ground to dust” that we don’t have the wherewithal or even the memory to call for help, or shore ourselves up.

This is where Grace seems to come through. And this is my belief: that Kundalini comes with Grace. As blissful and ecstatic as Kundalini can be, it seems to also have a way of grounding us to dust, taking away all props, forcing us to our knees so-to-speak. At least that’s been my experience.

When it had been so, so dark, when I had forgotten myself and how to call for help, this is where Grace had stepped in, like the tiniest sliver of light (my lifeline) in a universe of darkness.

Kundalini, it all seems to be one large Cosmic Dance. Beautiful at times, grotesque at times…but a dance all the same, where we are being asked to let Her lead!

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.

The Law of Attraction – the Main Ingredient

DSCF0579

Someone asked me what I thought of the “Law of Attraction.”

It’s a funny thing… my wife playfully calls me “The Attractor.” I call her “The Activator.” Together we’ve created a beautiful life for ourselves.

As the “Attractor” it seems I’ve been able to bring into our lives certain opportunities,  people and circumstances that would change our lives forever! However, without my wife’s activating, moving forward energy, of myself there would have been a higher possibility of losing opportunities through not acting fast enough.

So…I believe the Law of Attraction requires a lot of action…moving forward on opportunities…BEFORE WE FEEL READY!

Acting before we feel ready is huge! However, with this mindset, we learn very quickly as we move forward.

In a nutshell: implement, adjust, implement, adjust, implement….It’s the mindset of, “The bridge over the chasm of uncertainty gets created as we step out in faith.”

In another way: “on course, off course… By moving/acting we get a sense of when we’re on course or off course…and we make adjustments.

Also, it requires getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. This is also a big one! Learning to attract is not so difficult. It’s the follow-through and manifesting part that can be challenging.

In most Law of Attraction systems that I’ve read about, I believe it covers the action part, but I believe there is a part that is not covered so well…

How to instill new habits of thinking/feeling/acting. In learning to attract and create what we want, it is important to be aware of the habits that hold us back, that sabotage our best intentions. This is where habitual mindsets/beliefs, etc. are required to be deeply explored and, if necessary, released…and then new habits installed.

Also…I believe the “attracting” piece has many layers. For me there is the part of just being very clear on what we want, financially, emotionally, etc., etc.

There is then the layer of “holding” it energetically in our bodies, not just in our minds. For me this means connecting with the Bliss Resonance in the body/spine and connecting that energy/sensation with what is wanted.

And then a deeper layer is in looking/observing what is calling our attention in our environment. In other words, being open to signs, synchronicities, etc.

For example, right before a huge spiritual transition happened in my life, I came across crow feathers everyday for about 15 days in a row. This got my attention and I just had to pay attention to some of the very subtle cues that would ultimately lead my wife and I to a life-changing opportunity.

This is still ongoing learning for myself and so these words are for me too!

Third Eye Opening Symptoms

img_0501

When entering the visionary state (third eye opening), a very wide range of dimensions/realms become available to our awareness, some that are beatific beyond imagination, along with demonically horrid ones as well.

In the beginning, when entering those realms, we do not necessarily know how to navigate those worlds. Dark, negative entities can be quite intrusive and “in your face” so-to-speak. Our “toolbox” of spiritual techniques that we’ve gathered in our daily, 3d lives, help us to a certain degree when entering the visionary state, but cannot prepare us fully for the actual entry into those realms.

There have been times when I’ve been totally freaked out by the hideous places and beings that intruded into my consciousness. It seems to me that in order to ascend to the higher states of Being/Awareness, one must also pass through a kind of “Dark night of the Soul” realm of utter darkness, horror, etc.

As much as I’ve made intention to go straight to the light/love/higher vibration, it seems that I still had to go through the darker realms…as though it was a kind of “rite of passage.”

Note: Most of the demons/entities do not have so much power. All it takes is to keep the attention at the spiritual eye/light. However, there are certain very powerful demons/entities that seem to have the power to extract our memory of calling for the help of our Higher Self, Angelic Guides, Spirit, etc. This is where Grace comes in.

Our Spirit protectors come to our aid when we have lost ourselves to these very powerful entities. Having the experience of this level of Grace gives us a depth of gratitude for the gifts of love that we have been given in our lives. To experience the dimension of utter darkness and horror…and then to realize the gift and light of love that are embedded in our Beings brings such a depth of gratitude that I don’t think I could have realized/felt in any other way!

Meditation is not the problem! Opening the Spiritual Eye/third eye is not the problem! I do understand though, how one might construe the practice of meditation and the opening of the third eye as the cause of such horrific experiences and visions.

To me, it would be such a sad loss of spiritual opportunity to shut down the spiritual eye out of fear of the darker realms. But again, I do understand why one would want to do so. There is a kind of security in the “bandwidth” of our familiar human dimension. The realms that open up through the spiritual eye are unfamiliar and in the beginning we just do not know of to navigate through the darker realms.

Just a little bit of experience in these unfamiliar dimensions is all that is necessary to move past these unwanted intrusions. Learning seems to happen quickly, to not dally or focus upon the dark.

Again, in the higher realms, the intrusions cease. Spiders, demons, scenes of torture, getting jumped on and tortured, etc….these seem to be last gasp efforts of the satanic forces to keep us from entering the higher realms, which is SOOO close when the spiritual eye is opened.

In the higher realms, the actual Divine Christ Light/Consciousness, the Divine Mother/Father is infinitely and sublimely beyond what we can ever imagine when in the density of our rational, human, egoic consciousness!

Spirit Guides, Animal Totems – Are They Real?

img_0025

Spirit guides, Animal Totems, I think they’re all imaginary, but that’s not to say that the objects of the imagination are not “real.” They’re just vibrating at different frequencies, perhaps not within the “bandwidth” that our bodies reside in nor within the range of our normal waking state.

In this way of thinking, all thoughts and objects of our imagination can be thought of as “real” from an energetic perspective. I guess the important consideration is whether or not they have the power and consciousness to uplift and help us…I certainly know from my own experience that certain thoughts have the power to hurt/harm.

For example, if I relive a memory of a past hurt, be it physical or emotional, I can feel the unpleasantness and hurt in my body and emotions as long as I hold onto the memories. It makes sense to not hold onto such memories. However, it’s not so easy to tell myself, “Stop the memories! Stop thinking about what happened years ago!”

Also, perhaps you know how trauma can get so embedded in the body and psyche they seem to assume a life of their own in the body/mind…long after the initial traumatizing event!

Back to the question, “Are Spirit Guides and Animal Totems real?” To me the question is a little “off-mark” because it can get as messy and convoluted as the question, “What is Truth?” …which to me is not as interesting as, “What is true to me…and what is true to you?”Or, in another way, “What is real to me…and what is real to you?

We can bring in the words of science and/or the words of scripture to support or even be the gatekeepers for what we believe to be true and real for us…but I think, for me, it comes down to the question, “Is it real for me?” In the sense of “Does it uplift/help, or hurt/harm?”

Are Spirit Guides and Animal Totems/Spirits real to me? Have they helped me? Yes and yes! But I suppose their “realness” may not be as important so long as I feel guided and protected by their presence in my life.

If there ever comes a time when I no longer feel their help and presence in my life, then I can imagine that their “realness” to me will also fade away.

Dance of Well Being, Part 2

IMG_0023

Focusing the mind upon subtle body sensations can be a way of quieting the mind, an easy way of focusing the attention. When placing the mind upon the overall resonance of sensations, the feelings can be resolved into a kind of “ball of vibration” that can be squeezed, pushed and pulled through the body, that effortlessly attracts the attention and focuses the mind.

This is experienced as a delicate dance of exquisite sensations balanced upon the pinpoint of the mind’s attention.

What holds the attention? Bliss…

What is meant by the “ball of vibration?” It is the sum total, the overall resonance of all that is felt in the moment. Sensations include all vibrations coming in through the physical senses and may include smells, tastes, sounds, sights, etc.

The main ingredient here is in connecting with the underlying sensation that has a “feel good” aspect and that imparts a feeling of well being. This particular vibratory “ingredient” is the secret sauce without which the above is just another technique that cannot take you very deep.

The very feeling/sensation of well being, of bliss, is the prompt that can take you to deepest levels of the awareness of Being!

Music to Activate the Bliss Centers in the Spine

IMG_0186

Do you ever listen to certain songs that you cannot get enough of, playing them over and over again? It is like the body, mind, spirit, emotions, etc. seem to receive a kind of sustenance from them.

I’m remembering a particularly intense time in my life when I played Sarah Brightman’s “Time to Say Goodbye” over and over on my cd player. It was one of those CDs that I just could not get enough of. And it just so happened that, during that time, I was saying goodbye, leaving the monastic community that I had belonged to for 19 years.

One day, months later, it seemed that I had had my fill. I put the CD down and have not played it since. It was as though my body, mind and psyche craved the particular melodies, lyrics and overall resonance of the songs…until I had my fill.

Lately, I’ve been attracted to non-English speaking songs and artists, because the sounds of different languages seem to “tickle” or “activate” different cravings/desires/inspiration/pleasure centers of my mind and brain.

For the last couple of months, I’ve been listening to Sara Tavares, especially her “Ess Amor” and “muna Xeia.” Those songs, for me fall into the category of “so beautiful that they hurt.” I do not understand the meaning of the lyrics, but I like/crave certain sounds and overtones of what she sings.

When I listen to music, I feel for the sounds and resonances that vibrate/activate the pleasurable “feel good” centers in the spine. In this way, certain music has been hugely beneficial in maintaining well-being and for deepening sensitivity to inspiration and the bliss resonance.
