Kundalini Hum of Creation, Part IV

IMG_0040

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.

Dance of Well Being

IMG_0020

Repetitive movement, such as while walking, dancing, or running, creates an ongoing flow of sensations that can be felt even when the movement has been stopped. The vibrations continue on, reverberating, echoing through the body and can be tracked or sensed to extremely subtle depths.

Similarly, the sensations of laughter, giggles and smiles can be felt to finer and finer levels of subtlety.

What can you do with this sensitivity? Well, explore for yourself. The waves of sensations that play upon the sheerest fabric of your awareness is a most luxurious, ecstatic experience!

But do not take my word for it. Again, explore for yourself. Follow sensations to the finest balance point of awareness. Follow the prompts of the sensations as they move wave-like and pulse-like through the body in finer and finer vibrations.

As you continue to listen and to feel deeper and deeper into sensation, surrender happens when you allow the body to move/dance, first in micro-movements…and then in contortions that result from the buildup of subtle ecstatic energies that flow in the cavernous depths just below all vibrations.

For example, when listening to music that activates within you the desire to dance, as you feel into the sensations moving through the body, the feelings can be a kind of twisting, spiraling, contorting of the body that seems to squeeze the feel good juices as though through every cell of the body.

The feeling this imparts is one of extreme well being, pleasure, of being in love, of being inspired to play, dance, draw, sing…to just enjoy being, to enjoy the simple act of breathing!

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: bruce@manakastudios.com

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

We Are Meant to Dance! Part 2

IMG_0375

Went to last night’s Ecstatic Dance, something I’ve not been able to do regularly of late. I realized how much I miss it, how important dance has been in helping me to connect with the very fine Bliss Resonance that I speak so often of in my blog posts.

In dance, it is easy to connect with the waves of “feel good” juices in the body. Now, something interesting: I notice that certain types of sounds and their overtones can be tracked to very deep places in the body, especially in the areas of the spine. Physical vibration that can be felt in finer and finer subtlety. For me (and it might be different for others), certain sounds of the voice, flute, didgeridoo, violin and sitar especially have a way of vibrating the innermost areas of the spine.

This morning, as I listen to the bamboo flute as played by Steve Gorn in his piece “At Ease,” it is easy to follow the vibration of the sounds into the spine, where the build-up of the Bliss Resonance then happens of itself. The natural movement of the body is a kind of contortion of the spine, a squeezing sensation that moves bliss through the body.

It just requires an initial recognition of what is activating, nudging us to move in resonance with the music. Have you ever wondered why most young people (perhaps not all), loves to dance? Of course there might be the obvious wanting to meet potential mates. Music, sex, dance…it all gets mixed into the cauldron of our primal urges/desires.

By tuning into that very fine, activating nudge/desire that moves us to dance or have sex, therein lies the conscious connection with the Bliss Resonance. When you make that visceral, conscious connection, everything changes…

Lessons from the Flu

IMG_0363

I noticed something when I had the flu last week. My enjoyment of things I normally love doing seems to get turned off, like a dimmer switch being turned down. Listening to my favorite music, drawing, dancing, etc. gets switched off…and the body/mind just wants to sleep, rest. It is like my connection with beauty, with inspiration gets turned off.

The “feel good” feeling, the Bliss Response in the body can still be tuned into I noticed, but the “gravitational pull” of the body’s need for sleep and rest just seemed too strong. This may sound obvious, but it seems that a certain baseline of health or energy level must exist in order to be in tune with the Bliss Response in the body.

When engaged in any kind of creative work (painting, drawing, writing, playing music, listening to music, dancing, etc.), if you pay attention to the sensations of your body, you may find a kind of pleasant or even pleasurable vibration moving through the body. The subtlety of sensations becomes then a playground for creative inspiration.

When well, the body has an amazing capacity for creative inspiration, for tuning into exquisitely fine sensations, delighting on the balance point of the body’s resonance with Bliss.

After having gone through a bout with the flu, the body, having been purged of accumulated toxins, along with getting plenty of rest, the rising energy level seems to be accompanied by a return of the “feel good” juice, the Bliss Response… the natural state of well being…a clearness of body and mind that supports the state of wonderment and enjoyment of the world!

The body is an amazing, infinitely creative, Bliss generating machine! It was not meant to be an instrument of torture! In my “Ecstatic YOU!” mentorship program, I share some of the ways in which I’ve connected with the conscious and creative currents (Kundalini) that surrounds and permeates the body.

My primary approach is through the use of sound and their overtones. All that is required is an open heart and deep feeling. If you are interested in connecting with, switching on these subtle currents in your body, please contact me for a free consultation to see if we would be a good fit to work together!

Mindfulness as Dance/Play/Romance

BruceManakaArt4

Mindfulness is a way to tune the awareness immediately to the overall resonance of the moment, to the awareness of “how I feel in this moment.” From this information we are then able to make choices that are more in alignment with how we wish to feel. We humans, if even slightly introspective, will usually want to feel expansive, happy, loving, etc.

Mindfulness accepts whatever feelings comes up, tuning into the overall sensations that arise in the body, along with any corresponding thoughts.

Now here is the great value of mindfulness: when the attention is placed fully on the sensations of the body, following to finer and finer subtlety of vibration, the mind releases its tight hold on thoughts and the thinking process that oftentimes goes ’round and ’round, holding the mind in stories of  “why I feel so ____ (fill in the blank).”

Something interesting happens, besides helping us to “chill out.” It seems that just by placing our attention on any part of the body, the energy and feeling grows/magnifies in that area of the body. The natural movement of mind is then to expand into the “opening” created.

The sensation of this expansion, I believe is the birthplace of creativity. When followed to deeper and deeper subtlety, the feeling moves the body to dance, to sing, to create music, art, etc.

It is easy to miss the benefits of mindfulness (as well as meditation) when “practiced” as  disciplines or techniques. The mindset and approach of one who “practices” discipline and techniques oftentimes does not include the knowing and wisdom of when to release discipline and technique.

When the deeply subtle connection is made with the blissful life force in the spine, the “practice” of mindfulness or meditation no longer has meaning as it becomes more of a dance/play/romance with the creative force moving through the body.

Connecting With the Bliss Resonance

IMG_0218

I write and draw everyday, usually as a way to connect with the creative river, with Higher Self, with the ecstatic vibration that can be tuned into with just a little adjustment in inward listening and feeling.

I also realize that I haven’t posted in a long time! This is going to change as some of my readers have requested that I elaborate on the “how” of connecting with the Bliss Resonance that I speak of.

Do you know what it means to connect with the Bliss Resonance? There is a certain frequency range in and around the body that, when tuned into, generates waves and pulsations of ecstatic bliss that is not unlike sexual orgasm…only higher up the spine.

Bliss is a visceral experience that can be felt through the sexual experience, but it is not dependent on it. Sex is but one (albeit powerful) embodied expression of the Infinite Resonance that surrounds and permeates the body.

Most likely you have all experienced an aspect of Bliss, to varying degrees. Learning to consciously access its power is another thing altogether, as the body and mind will of necessity need to be in a wider, expanded place in order to accommodate the higher voltage of the ecstatic pulsations!

 

The simple approach that I take is in using certain sounds as a way of “vibrating” the body until it is in harmonic resonance with Bliss. Another part is in knowing what to feel for.

In future posts I will elaborate further. Until then!
