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!

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. Contact me here if you’d like to: Connect With the Bliss Resonance

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

Entrainment With the Cosmic Dance

When we feel the pulse beat of the Mother flowing through our bodies, the river of surrender calls us to flow with all that is: pain, pleasure and everything in-between. I’ve been dealing with some intense sciatica pains over the last few weeks in my right leg, a result of too much chopping wood. Night after night, unable to sleep, having to get up and hobble around just to manage the pain! Something very interesting though: although I “felt” most severely the pain in my right leg, as I followed it internally to its source, it seemed to pulsate from the deepest center of my Being; and from there a strange question arose,  “What do you want?” Of course my immediate answer was “To be free of this blasted pain!” This was followed by another question, “Can you be ok with this?” With this request the body stood up and began to move in an awkward dance accompanied by my muffled sarcastic reply, “Do I have a choice?”

At three a.m. I was in no mood to ponder the infinite complexities of the cosmos nor the words that I just heard. I just wanted to go to sleep and be rid of pain! However, dancing across the floor of my yurt seemed somewhat bizarre and a bit alarming to my wife, who by this time wanted to take me to the hospital. I considered this option but did not want to interrupt the grotesque ballet being enacted. It occurred to me as I continued to witness this unusual tableau that the energetic wave moving through my body was some kind of Cosmic Dance of pain and pleasure. It seemed that the bliss energies in the spine that I had grown accustomed to were moving side-by-side with the intense physical pains as a way to release and balance out the energies in the affected areas. Perhaps writhing on the floor would have been a more “normal” reaction to the pain that I was feeling, but for some inexplicable reason, the dance had taken over, along with a number of mysterious vocalizations that made this episode all the more eerie.

I finally fell asleep at around 4:30am, not because the pain had subsided, but because I was exhausted. The body had to go through its dance of pain and no matter how much I desired a release from its grip, I was allowed only meager moments of respite. At some point during my cherished sleep, the question, “Can you be ok with this?” changed into “I’m ok with this.”  It went on automatically like a song sung feverishly with no thinking involved, just the sound vibrations moving through the body like little snakes darting in and around my hips and legs.

As I sit here now, a few weeks after having experienced the above story, the pain has subsided substantially and the leg is on the road to complete recovery; and yet the question, “Can you be ok with this?” continues to surface daily as a reminder of the pain and its call for me to dance with what may be most uncomfortable. I am reminded that certain repetitive movements of breath and body helps to move energy. It is not so much a matter of “practicing” techniques, but rather an allowing of the energy to “dance” in ways that it wishes to move.

It is all a play of energy, an allowing of the dance to move through and within the bodily field. The beautiful resonance of Love and Bliss are already in the field and it is just a matter of letting what is already within us entrain with the Cosmic Dance.
