One of the purposes of “Accessing Your Higher Self” blog site is to share helpful ways to shift the relationship we have with “life force/energy” (our sense of self) to a much deeper and more expansive one that connects us with the subtleties of our Divine gifts…gifts we are meant to express and share with the world.
What does it mean to “connect with the subtleties of our Divine gifts?” It is a process of feeling deeper and deeper into the overall sensation/resonance of Being, allowing the mind to be absorbed into what feels like an underlying hum/vibration.
The intention to feel deeper and deeper into the “underlying hum” is a distilling of sensation to the finest, most subtle essence of Being.
As the awareness attunes itself deeper and deeper with this subtle “Hum,” the body/mind/psyche inevitably goes into a kind of swoon/contortion of overflowing energies, ecstatically blissful by nature.
This “overflowing” of energy happens as a result of mind that, as it “touches” or experiences subtle vibration, an expansion of mind and energy happens simultaneously, creating a “contortion” of the physical body.
In exploring the vibrations of vocal sounds/tones, the important part is to feel the sensations that are created in the body, especially the most subtle ones. This draws the mind deeply within and engages the awareness in ways vastly different from our habitual patterns that we’ve grown familiar with.
In other words, by feeling into and attuning ourselves to the very fine and subtle vibrations (as initiated by our vocal cords), we come to realize that the human body and consciousness has infinitely fine sensitivity to vibrations and feelings that we may not have previously experienced…due in part to no inability on our parts to do so, but in the simple reason that it may not have occurred to us to even explore/attempt such an endeavor!
The process is simple: to feel and follow sensations to their point of subtlety. There is no difficulty in doing this. Any perceived difficulty may be that we’re not convinced or intrigued enough to even try this approach. It may not even occur to us to feel beyond and underneath what has become habitual and familiar in our realms of feelings. And yet…
To those who are curious enough to explore the subtle sounds and overtones of their voice, to feel and follow the fine sensations that are created, they will quickly discover very fine vibrations that draws the mind/consciousness deeply within. They will tap into gossamer threads of the finest, tinkling sensations in the spine…and the body goes into and assumes a most delicately balanced “contortion” that holds the mind as though in a silken “vice grip” of most subtle Bliss Resonance!
The body comes to feel like quicksilver, coiling, twisting, contorting…engaged in a kind of Cosmic Dance! It is all infinitely subtle and divinely ravishing!
By focusing upon the subtle sensations of the body, upon the overall “Hum” that can be felt deeply within, you may notice a gentle twisting sensation that subtly “nudges” the body to move in tandem with the sensation. It feels like an activation of the body to go into a contortion…a delicate dance that is activated by the Bliss Resonance.
This contortion of the body is the current of Life Force and is like a magnet that draws the attention of the mind…and there is a delicate dance of holding certain postures (contortions) while not exhausting the body. It is a dance of holding and releasing energy.
The mind then goes deeply within, focusing upon the fine balance point of contraction, stillness and micro movement. It is important to also notice and allow the body to naturally and automatically assume the various postures and movements. For example, you may notice the sensation of the eyes and how they naturally and automatically lift upwards in the eye sockets and skull.
This all becomes an exquisitely slow dance, an engagement with wave upon wave of delicate and subtle-beyond-words sensations. It can only be felt/intuited with the deepest allowing/surrender, like enjoying the fragrance of the rose brought in by a gentle breeze!
Remember that it takes a build up of the resonance/energy (in the body), felt as a bubbling up of vibrations in the spine, abdomen and heart areas. Take the time necessary to feel deeply, to listen deeply…until you feel the shift of mind to the “still point.” Understand that this “shift” need only be slight/small. The important part is to notice/feel the slight shifts and to recognize that the mind can track extremely subtle sensations and shifts of awareness.
While tracking and feeling into subtle sensations, you may become aware of how the mind can come to a still point…where there is no thinking. This can happen in a fraction of a second…allowing you an experience of the moment, unimpeded by thoughts of the past or future.
In tuning into the subtlety of vibration/sensation, you are also “touched” by the underlying “Hum” or “Om” vibration that is like a background rumbling or reverberation that can be felt in the overall vibratory field of awareness.
By feeling deeper and deeper into this underlying vibration, the mind is easily drawn into the experience of the still point…which brings on an overflowing of energy (life force), felt as pulsations of sweet, nectar-like substance moving through spine and body.
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.
When feeling into the overall vibrations of the body, undulations and reverberations of most delicious sensations can be felt moving through the spine…with each breath, with each micro movement…an ecstatic dance of intoxicating subtlety!
The body naturally and automatically contorts, squeezing sensations that feel sweet and nectar-like through the spine…holding the mind and body in deep rapture, an infinitely slow dance of coiling, squeezing, swooning Bliss!
There is no difficulty in experiencing the Bliss Resonance (the Hum of Creation) save in the unwillingness to feel and follow what is already in the range of our feeling experience.
The mind and body are exquisitely set up to experience the finest nuances of vibration. However, the fine instruments of our sensitivity gets waylaid/distracted by a world/cultural mindset that does not support (or has forgotten) how to encourage the simple mindfulness/attentiveness to the underlying “Hum/Om” that is accessible to all.
The Bliss Resonance is so very close! It is foundational and background to our very existence! We lose connection to it because of the strong overlay/resonance of a world mindset that places high value and attention on coarse and superficial vibrations/feelings…and low or no value on fine/subtle vibrations/feelings.
Take up, surrender to the contortion of Life Force as it moves through the body, as it holds the mind and body in blissful swoon…the squeezing contortion of the body pushes the life force up the spine to the crown area. The body/mind/psyche is then “held,” focused one-pointedly in the contortion.
Notice all that is in the moment, into the overall resonance of the body, all sensations combined that creates the underlying vibration of your Being.
Take a deep breath, exhale, relax and melt/surrender. Observe the mind, how it, like a butterfly, flits here and there.
Tune into the underlying subtle, giddy feeling that is like a delicate squeezing sensation that can be felt deeply within the spine, the central core of your experience of Being.
Following these subtle sensations is just a matter of listening and feeling deeply to the subtle vibrations, the underlying hum/reverberations that are easily felt when we allow ourselves to feel and to track the echoes/reverberations of what we feel.
As you give yourself to feel into what flows within, you may inevitably find the body moving delicately in resonance with how the flow of life force…taking up certain postures and adjusting in micro movements…like in an exquisitely slow dance.
Wave upon wave, delicate/subtle beyond words…it can only be felt/intuited with a most delicate apprehension, like enjoying the fragrance of the rose brought in by a gentle breeze!
