Medicine Song – Dance of Life Force in the Body, Part III

The sensing of fine and subtle vibrations moving through the the body (and especially the spine) imparts an experience of immense sweetness…like a kind of delicious nectar moving through every cell of the body!

Again, as mentioned previously, there is no difficulty in connecting/feeling into this blissful vibration. In my experience, when first connecting deeply with the subtle vibration, I was amazed at the infinitely thin layer of separation I created through my own resistance to feeling deeply…in not considering the simple invitation to follow the trail of feelings to deeper and finer levels of subtlety.

I was also amazed at how many years (and perhaps lifetimes) I struggled in meditation to connect with what was, ironically, so very close! The “problem” was not in meditation technique or in any lack of trying, but in not truly “getting,” understanding the import of feeling into subtle sensations…which is so very accessible to anyone!

Another important aspect of feeling into subtle sensations is in noticing/acknowledging of the buildup of the energy in the areas where the sensations are tuned into. It seems that wherever the sensations are focused upon, there is an expansion of the energy…creating energetic currents moving through the body/spine.

You might then notice how the body may adjust in “micromovements.” Twisting, coiling, contorting, etc., as a way to manage the higher voltage of life force in the body.

Medicine Song – Dance of Life Force in the Body, Part II

Medicine Song is the inner vibration of Being, an ecstatic wave of energy felt as the underlying “hum” of the body, the sum total of all sensations felt in the moment as one resonance. ONE RESONANCE!

There is no difficulty in feeling this, but an important component of this experience is in noticing and acknowledging the period of “no-thought,” if even for a fraction of a second…the “moment” when there is only the sensation of Being. This need not be a big “Wow!” experience.

The simple “noticing and acknowledging” of the moment creates a gentle “Ah, there it is!” experience of the subtle vibrations and sensations that we finally “get” were always so very close and within easy reach of our awareness.

So what? Of what benefit is this? Well, this initial “get” creates a kind of opening that leads the awareness to deeper and deeper levels of subtlety, the primal energies as felt in the spine and throughout the body. It allows us to experience a vastly wider range of vibrations, connecting us to the underlying “hum,” the overall resonance of Being.

This fine vibration of Being is delicate, subtle, sweet…ecstatically blissful!

Dance of Micromovements, Elixir of Bliss Part IV

When feeling into the subtle waves of sensations, going deeper into the overall resonance of feelings, the natural reaction of the body is to adjust to the buildup of energy. By the simple focusing upon sensations in the body, the energy seems to grow/expand, which then requires the body to accommodate the expansion of energies.

The adjustment that happens can be a stretching out of the spine, a shift in posture, yawning, shaking, etc. If there is an intention to keep the body still (as in meditation), the buildup of energy will adjust the body through “micromovements,” very slow adjustments that allows for relaxed posture.

If the attention is not so focused, it can be easy to miss the movement of life force in the body…and either fall asleep or lose oneself in distractions. It really isn’t difficult to focus on the subtlety of sensations…it just requires a willingness and intention to feel into the nuances of vibration, to replace old habits of how we relate to our sense of Being, how we relate to our Life Force.

The important point to get to in this exploration of “Life Force” is when you begin to notice the subtle buildup of energy, when it gets to a certain level. it creates a particular feeling/sensation that, in the beginning might feel like “giddiness.”

Just beneath this “giddiness,” if you allow yourselves to tune into (and follow) what is underneath this feeling, you might find an undercurrent of what I describe as “sweetness,” that has a most delicious and enchanting affect. It puts the body/mind/psyche into what feels like a “swoon.”

Dance of Micromovements, Elixir of Bliss Part III

When feeling into subtlety, there are no insignificant sensations. Whatever feeling you focus upon can be used as an entryway to deeper and deeper levels of nuanced awareness. Choose any sensation…tingling in the hands or feet, giddiness in the pit of the stomach, pain in the shoulders, sensations of the incoming and outgoing breath, etc.

The idea here is to focus inwardly on the overall sensation of whatever you tune into. This can also be done with emotions: anger, sadness, loneliness, etc. With any emotion there is a corresponding sensation/vibration that can be tracked in the body.

As you focus on sensations, at some point you may find an expansion of awareness that includes an underlying vibration (like a hum or buzzing) that, in the beginning, is relaxing and somewhat hypnotic.

It is at this stage that the mind and thought processes are settling down and you may experience short periods of detached noticing, as well as periods of “no-thought.” When done with deep focus, this is by no means a “ho-hum” or boring experience, but rather one that imparts a sense of enchantment and even exaltation.

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!

Tuning Into the Subtlety of Sensations, Part II

With just a little bit of introspection, we can observe in our lives how easily it is for the mind to be “captured” by distractions of habits, thought patterns, addictions, anger, moodiness, desires, likes/dislikes, etc.

Conversely, habits of mind also makes it easy for us to go through our day-to-day activities…and it can even make difficult tasks easy to do. The power of the mind to create patterns and habits that benefit our lives is a great positive in our lives.

In our day-to-day life, our “normal,” default existence is governed by habit patterns (both helpful and detrimental) formed over a lifetime. As for the detrimental patterns, it is easy to feel helpless in the face of what may seem like uncontrollable forces at work, keeping us enslaved to the very habits/patterns that we ourselves created, allowing the powers of mind to create the very patterns/habits that we now decry.

Is there a way to understand and utilize these powers in ways that are more in alignment with our Higher Selves? Understand that underneath the activity/movement of mind there is an underlying vibration/hum out of which arises the mind. This vibration can be felt as a sensation that draws the mind’s attention deeply within. This sensation, when followed to its point of subtlety in the spine, also connects the awareness with what feels like a vast resonance that surrounds the energetic field of the body, the very life force of creation.

There is no difficulty in experiencing the subtlety of life force. Sometimes it is just a mere lack of considering or acknowledging the sensitivity that we already have. We’ve grown comfortable with the patterns and habits of our default existence and do not consider that there are infinite subtleties and nuances that can be easily felt/experienced…if only we allowed ourselves to do so!

By simply noticing and following the overall sensations of the body to their point of subtlety, we begin to feel an underlying vibration that naturally draws the mind/attention deeply within…and by its very nature is blissful.

It is this “Hum” of Creation, the Bliss Resonance that can hold the mind in the “vice-grip” of rapture, in the energetic contortion that is created in the body.

Cosmic Dance!

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!
