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!

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 IV

When listening to your favorite music, especially the kind that makes you want to dance, take notice of what is activating you to move…to dance. Tune in, follow that vibration to its deepest place within and observe how the energy (life force) itself will adjust the body to “hold” the sensation in a kind of “energetic lock.”

This might look like any number of body postures with their infinite iterations: spinal and neck twists, leg/arm/finger positions, etc. There is no incorrect posture, as the important part of this process is in the deep listening/feeling aspect that guides the body to take the “shape” or energetic geometry of what flows through. Think very slow dance of micro-movements!

In this process, which is exquisitely blissful, the energy (life force) in the “energetic lock” builds up to such a degree that it overflows the container (posture) that holds the vibration. This creates what I think of as a “contortion” as the life force moves the body into another shape or container of the life force.

Take notice of the finest subtlety of the sensation that holds the body/mind/psyche in the contortion/contraction/expansion. Follow the extremely fine sensations deeper and deeper into your core, into the spine, until you are dissolved into the experience, where all is “Primal Contortion!”

This primal current moves smoothly, constantly and the mind can connect with the creative flow. You will then create easily and effortlessly, as this Divine Electricity flows in all directions.

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.”

Kundalini Dance of Subtlety, Part III

The following is in response to a number of individuals who have shared with me their terrifying (and yet positively transformative) experiences with Kundalini awakening. Although I use the term “Kundalini awakening,” I do not ascribe any particular religious philosophy or practice to the term. It’s just a way for me to label an experience that is deeply mystifying, wild, crazy, primal, terrifying, mind-shattering, ego-dissolving…and yet ultimately sacred and blissful!

Kundalini Awakening

When we get “cracked” wide open through Kundalini awakening, our sensitivities to subtle realms become heightened to not only angelically beautiful dimensions, but sometimes also to demonically horrid ones as well.

I see it as a kind of “rite-of-passage,” a teaching device that helps us learn to navigate all realms, the heavenly as well as hellish ones. In my experience, I believe no amount of preparation, spiritual practices, calling on angelic protectors, etc., was able to adequately prepare me for entry into those realms. Of course prayers and preparation can be of great help, but I now believe that the bulk of learning happens only while moving through those dimensions…a “sink-or-swim” proposition!

My learning: GRACE! For me, three days prior to my crown opening experience, it was a period of extreme terror, the very last night being the most scary! Everything that I had “thought” I knew previously about protecting myself spiritually and psychically …and that worked fairly well for me in the past, seemed to be “taken away.” In other words, it was as if I could not access (or even remember) my protectors, guides, prayers, etc.

What got me through the nights came unbidden by me: my animal protector, the lion. I remember growling, snapping, roaring for a very long time! Ultimately, my Guides came through, again all unbidden by me, as at that point I did not have the wherewithal to call for help!

When the crown opened up, the entity attacks ceased. They could not bother me. I stayed there for the next 24 hours or so. I’m still integrating the experience and will continue doing so for perhaps the rest of my life!

Going through suffering, dark night of the soul, etc., seems to be all part of the experience…part of our “initiation.” At least that was what was communicated to me. And I’m not sure there was any guarantee of physical survival…

At some point in the process (as I was being put back together), the “I” in me asked, “Where were you (Mother)? Why did you leave me in such a bad place/state?” The answer came as a torrent/download of Love/Bliss (as well as with these words): “We were all there with you during your suffering, but would not interrupt your initiation. When your tears flowed freely not only for yourself but for the condition of the world, did your suffering stop. Your initiation was complete!”

For those who are going through this “mind-shattering/ego-dissolving” process, Perhaps it might be helpful to think of it as a kind of initiation, one that will ultimately transform/recreate you into the powerful and loving Being that you are in essence!

Dreaming of Turtles

A reader, whom I will refer to as Tiffany, shared a “turtle” dream that she recently had. I’d like to share it here, with some of my own thoughts. Considering how many responses I’ve gotten from my post, “Turtle Energy – Ancient Origins” it would seem that many people are having turtle dreams.

Turtle Medicine

“I dreamt I was on a station bike in the back of a yard that presumes to be mine and a few feet ahead is like a vast water like the sea but it was of no waves.. as when I looked over I saw straight through to the bottom. It’s very clear and everything looked beautiful the colors it was like watching a magazine under water reef… but what stood out was a large turtle in a still motion with huge eyes beaming right at me that gave me creeps.. so while I was on this station bike, my 4year old old that I love so much was playing near the edge.. and I was telling him move away before he falls in as he cannot swim and he was provoking me as he did it even more putting his feet near the edge and grinning… so then I stay on the bike and started shouting for his dad who was somewhere but not seen to tell him come get Asher before he falls but he didn’t and I woke up..”

Thanks for sharing your dream Tiffany. Here’s the sense I get from it…and please understand that this is just my interpretation from what I get from the symbols and archetypes as they showed up in your dream.

To me the “backyard” represents the parts of yourself not seen by others…and it would make sense that the “vast water like the sea” is your inner life (emotions, feelings, fears, etc.).

You were able to see “straight through to the bottom” of the “vast water” which was “very clear and everything looked beautiful…” which seems to represent your infinite potential (for love, beauty, wisdom, etc.).

Your being on the “station bike” (stationary bike?) seems to represent that part of you that perhaps feels is doing a lot of work but not going anywhere (stationary). Your “child” that you “love so much” was “playing near the edge” represents the child within you that you want to protect from the depths of your infinite potential, as it is scary, too wide, too big, as represented by the “large turtle” with “huge eyes.”

Now your feelings are key here. You wrote “gave me creeps…” Was the feeling dark/forboding, menacing?

I know from my own dreams that when something gives me the “creeps,” there is usually an entity or menacing spirit-type of intrusion. However, when I have vast water dreams, to me it can oftentimes be scary in the sense of too big, wide, vast…never creepy.

If your feelings were “creepy” then it would be helpful to “clear” yourself of dirty or unclean energies, using whatever prayers/rituals that make sense to you, Call in your animal protectors, angelic guides, etc. Smudge yourself with sage, command any unclean, heavy or dark energies to be released to the light.

Anyway, hope this helps!
