Bliss Consciousness: the Transmission

Certain positions of the body, combined with the internal “squeezing” of particular muscle groups generates unbelievable degrees of bliss sensations in the bodily field for those who are familiar with Kundalini energies. The awareness then naturally follows the vibration to deeper and deeper nuances of its expression. Like waves that come and go, yet the consciousness is ever aware of its connection with the Infinite Ocean!

It is so simple and yet understandable why this awareness eluded me for most of my life. Rather, I eluded it. I unconsciously shielded myself from the vast “feelings” implied, too outwardly preoccupied to look into the deep abyss of Self. It was easier to lose myself in the challenges of “surface” living, focusing on the day-to-day struggles and responsibilities, endeavoring to do my duty and dharma as any good citizen of the world would do. It was the default “nine-to-five” daily grind existence handed down to all of us by the predominant culture of a world mindset  that did not know how to connect with the deepest layers of the human psyche – let alone Bliss Consciousness.

There is no “technique” that needs to be “practiced.” The energy will do what it needs to do in order to clear out any impediment or blockage to bliss energy. The body then assumes certain positions of itself to intensify and magnetize the field of the spine and body. Our conscious part is to allow the energy to move as it wants to in the body in order to build up the  field of Kundalini. A gentle twisting or stretching of the spine may suffice, along with a deep listening and feeling for the subtle vibrations that accompanies every posture and movement. This blissful, cosmic vibration is the very river and ocean of Love, in all its power and subtlety! It is the dance of Creation moving through all bodies, singing through all Nature, in the stars and galaxies!

We miss its presence because we distract ourselves with the countless mental stories of our little daily dramas. We short-circuit our direct access to bliss through the culturally created belief that the connection with Spirit/Bliss is only for the saints and supermen/women. And so it is for lifetimes that we pass this belief down through the generations.

There is no difficulty in connecting with this great power. Any perceived difficulty lies only in our resistance to the depths of our feelings. We fear the ocean of Bliss, forgetful of our divine connection with its infinite waters. We are the Ocean! What seems so immense and vast and overwhelming within Nature is a reflection of the infinite depths of our Selves. We hide and lose ourselves in the drunkenness of forgetfulness, choosing to stay little because it is too scary to feel the vastness of our Cosmic Selves. It feels safer to be wrapped in the cocoon of smallness, more comfortable to remain in the “safety” of limitation. We equate “familiarity” with safety and security and then lose our way, haunted by the call of the Eternal Vastness, drowning its voice by magnifying our littleness, building edifices of beliefs that protect our narrow existence in a world that depends on the security of fight and struggle. And yet the transmission of light is available to all who would simply allow themselves to feel deeply and to embrace even that which may seem at first uncomfortable and unpleasant.

Feel! And then follow the sensations as they go deeper and deeper within, along the trail of subtlety. Understand that the heart is a most powerful instrument that can plumb the depths of the deepest realms of any dimension. We then follow the vibration to its most subtle and sublime realm.

This is the transmission: allowing ourselves to feel and follow the pathways of subtlety wherein lie the primal forces of Cosmic Energy. Our deep listening and feeling then becomes the teacher, the guru. This elemental force is conscious and creative and knows how to magnify itself in the bodily field. Again, there is no sense of “practicing” a technique, or following and believing in a particular religious path. Teacher, student, path, it all dissolves into the field of the divine play of Bliss that dances and expresses through the unique creation of our lives!

Creativity – Holding the Vision of What You Want

Hold the vision of what you want and feel the energy of its creation. Understand that what is felt with powerful focus will be created. This is the Law. Breathe in Beauty! Bask and luxuriate in the blissful resonance of the energetic field being created within and all around. With intention and focus, vibrate your vision into the realm of creation. Draw, write, sing and dance all beautiful dreams into manifestation! You are so close! Understand that what you have sought for lifetimes is already with you. It is just a matter of opening up to the gifts that have been yours since the beginning.

The energy is strong and creativity flows easily and smoothly whilst relaxing into the blissful field. Love is calling you to plumb the depths. Observe, relax and release! The “You” of name and human form will be experienced dispassionately as a wave of Spirit, connected with the Cosmic Ocean. Each breath will then be a constant reminder, an eternal pulsation of the Infinite Connection. Breathe deeply and feel! It will be as though you have awakened from a deep sleep and all things will seem different and yet familiar.

Spirit is awakening and expressing through the body. It is spreading its wings of light through every nerve and cell. That energy is blissful, overwhelmingly powerful as it moves wave after wave through the body. Allow it to dance and express. Bask in the delectable moment that is Infinite Beauty and Joy! And then go deeper still. This is your work! Take care of your responsibilities, but understand that your main focus and work is with Spirit. Expansion of the heart will then happen naturally as you relax and allow the powerful Spirit to move within.

Beauty is unfolding and spreading its wings of light. Receive that you have the power and understanding to manage the ebb and flow of its Divine Song!

Creativity – a Frequency of Love

Immerse yourself in the waters of Creativity that flows smoothly and powerfully. There is no stopping the river! It flows eternally and effortlessly. Once you step into the realms of deep mystery, the energy and resonance of its song will carry you along on its currents. Just write quickly, without stopping to question whether or not what is expressed is good or bad. Do not hold back in your creativity. The idea is to get the momentum going and then step aside to allow the Higher Self to express freely. In this way, Beauty is unleashed to reveal its secrets through your writings and drawings. It is a way to bypass the mind that wishes to evaluate and judge everything before giving voice or expression.

Allow, relax and then open up to deeper and deeper levels of Spirit. There is then no stopping the flow of this beautiful river, no boundary to your creative endeavors. Go deep quickly and express freely without fear or limitation. The field of Love then expands in all directions.

The heart speaks and communicates through the language of intuition. As you gaze across the landscape of your feelings, you receive impulses regarding any question or desire you may have. Listen to and feel deeply for the answers that well up in the energetic field that you are immersed in. Feel the finest vibrations of the subtle voice. You are a Creator, a vast field of Consciousness that is connected to Source Energy.

Understand that the vibratory field of the body is infinite and connected seamlessly with all Creation. The belief of the body as limited and separate is a play of Spirit enjoying itself through the countless creations that it has given life and individuality to. We have forgotten our eternal connection with the Divine and dream that we are limited beings stuck upon a world that requires struggle and fight for survival.

Spirit is asking for a release of the tight grasp that you have upon the narrow vibratory realm of the three dimensional world. The heart is calling for the letting go of the rigid bundle of beliefs that you hold onto regarding what is possible. Step now into the wider home of omnipresence and offer into the fires of wisdom all stories of limitation!

What amazing dimensions can be explored and enjoyed! Feel, relax, breathe in deeply the energies of Spirit. You have access to all dimensions and can learn from the Masters of all realms. As you tap into the resonance of Being, you can dive into any ocean of the Infinite. What sacred mystery do you wish to explore? What frequency of Love do you wish to experience?

Creativity, Enchantment and Sacred Space

Everything that I do revolves around my play with “Creativity, Enchantment and Sacred Space;” and it is through the relationship that I have with the Child within that I learn to flow with Creativity, live in the dimension of Enchantment and foster Sacred Space. Very simply, “I am the invitation for the Child to come out and play.”

When I speak of “Child” I mean the inner archetype or energy of creativity that flows within. The inner child can also be our connection to the Mother/Father Divine. When we allow ourselves to merge energetically with the Child, the energy then wishes to express creatively through the unique channel of our lives. I use sound, voice (overtone singing), rhythm, dance, movement, art (writing and drawing), and playing music as a way for the creative energy to express. The more I allow (without mental editing or self-criticism), the more it begins to flow easily and effortlessly. The energy flow also becomes joyful, ecstatic, moving like nectar through the body.

Learn to listen to your heart and body…without judgment, without story. Feel! Feel! Feel! Ask any body part what message it wishes to convey to you. Listen and feel.

This vision has gotten very clear in the last year or so and it’s how I conduct my sound healing events. I have the participants sing and dance their prayers and intentions. It is just a matter of getting out of our own way.

I did not take any special training to learn overtone singing. I taught myself by listening and feeling (on the inside). There are, however, recordings that can be found on Youtube (do a search for “overtone singing,” “throat singing,” and “Harmonic singing”). You can find lots of help with technique online… Have fun with singing (without pushing yourself). Learn to listen for subtlety…that is where the true power lies in overtone singing. Follow and listen for the subtle vibrations that dance within…they will awaken and help you move energy in the body.

Most of all, have fun! If it’s not fun you’re trying too hard! It’s all a dance and play of energy. It’s like the human equivalent of a cat’s purr. The whole body begins to vibrate. I sing now (as much as I can) only with people that are open hearted and willing to play. When I do events, I take lots of time to bless the area of play and the individuals present. This is the blessing of “Sacred Space.” In this way, the Child feels safe to come out and play. When the Child comes out, many wonderful things can happen. The consciousness goes into deep trance and the vibration of love and bliss begins to be experienced. It is a thing of great Beauty and Enchantment!

There are infinite dimensions of creativity that can be explored. Just get the energy moving without stopping to consider why you may be feeling a lack of inspiration. Start something…listen and feel deeply while expressing through your writings, drawings or music. There is no “stuckness” save in your own choice to not start the process. Once you allow and begin something creative, no matter how small or large, the momentum of creativity will begin to move of itself, allowing for tremendous bursts of expression. Step out of the way! Do not judge or question whether or not you are “good enough.” Create! Create everyday. Your life and Being is inherently creative. Allow the Divine to sing and dance through you. If you ever feel uninspired, that is a trick of the mind. Just start the process of moving energy and then inspiration will always be with you. It is as natural as breathing in and out. Feel and listen to the Spirit that lives within. You are Creativity. Live and breathe its Spirit. Receive and be filled with what is already yours and then give thanks that your consciousness can now understand and receive this!

Accessing the River of Creativity – Calm Awareness

Creativity as spoken about in the following dialog with Higher Self is about allowing a space within ourselves to let energy flow unimpeded. Creating everyday may be a matter of just getting up and going for a walk around the block or around the park, feeling the energy in our bodies move and connect harmoniously with the environment; feeling ourselves as part of the Creative Ocean expressing through our walk.

Creativity may also be about moving through the workplace with calm awareness, noticing the feelings and thoughts as they arise, not losing ourselves in any drama that may play out during the day. It is about staying in that place of clarity or Presence wherein the Consciousness enjoys itself in the fullness of the moment.

You are never far from the Source of Inspiration that can radically change your circumstances for the better. Allow it to do its work. Create everyday! The momentum of energy and mind can propel you towards dimensions of discovery and learning that will take your breath away!

Relax and breathe deeply into the vision
you hold within. It’s not enough to just stay in shallow waters. Go deep, plumb the depths of what is there for you in the most subtle regions of consciousness. If you find yourself out of the flow of awareness, it’s just a matter of dropping back into the movement of the energetic river. Listen on the inside, relax and then once again observe quietly, without grasping or forcing. Do not fight or force! Relax and observe. Feel the resonance of all that plays within and around you.

Move gracefully, as the vibratory Being
that you are. Enter into the flow of what is already moving and that is connected with the Creative Source. Listen, be aware and allow. You will then slip gently into sublime levels of awareness.

Awaken from moment to moment. As you melt into the Cosmic Stream, the awareness of Self expands to include all things. Feel now what wishes to express from the deepest Source. The Breath of Creativity is an Ocean of wonder that has no limitation. Its waves expand in all directions, forever moving and creating. Your true home is in this Ocean. Make use of the gifts you were meant to express and manifest. There is no aspect of Creation you cannot explore. As the Ocean meets Sky upon the horizon, so will your Heart meet Omnipresence upon the horizon line of calm awareness!

Turtle Medicine – Ancient Memories

Turtle Medicine - Live in Peace

Turtle Medicine transports us between dimensions, from waking to dreamtime awareness and back. It helps us to slow down our thoughts and the very frequency that keeps the earth drama in play. As you close your eyes and visualize Turtle Medicine, it is so easy to see the form of Turtle as the Earth Mother, swimming effortlessly through the vastness of space. Touch and feel the hard shell beneath your feet. Listen and feel on the inside as breath slows down and thoughts fall away. Your connection with the Earth can be felt as an ancient memory, a distant playing of song that can be heard in the farthest periphery of awareness. You ride upon the back of Turtle Medicine, through skies and ocean…through all dimensions!

As your breath slows down, gently and in the most natural way, you feel yourself expanding through all realms, until you know your Self as part of all things, including the dance of littleness and limitation that is so much a part of the earth drama. And yet, as you breathe with the breath of Turtle Medicine, and allow its song to wash over you like the warm rays of the Sun, you also know that the dream of littleness is for a short while, and that the Earth Mother is calling you to release the tight hold you have upon the nightmare.

Listen and feel! The breath relaxes and as you watch inhalation meeting exhalation, and exhalation meeting inhalation, the awareness deepens of itself as mind and body slow down, as the frequency of little self melts into the resonance of the Earth Mother. Upon the back of Turtle Medicine you ride, floating so easily, so quietly. Can you feel the hard shell, smooth and worn. When you touch the shell of Turtle you are connecting with the ancient memories of the Great Mystery!

Look into the shell that is beneath your feet. Something is reflecting back from the farthest galaxies of memory. Observe and receive…listen and feel. Turtle Medicine calls you to ride upon its back, to travel through places of light and shadow, pain and joy, enjoying the great dance of creation that unfolds within the openness of your heart! Enjoy and receive!

Turtle Energy – Ancient Origins

Had dreams about turtles. Dear Higher Self, what is the significance of these dream? They were trying to bite me!

Turtle energy is deeply connected with ancient Earth energies and is “biting” to get your attention. Consider what Turtle energy represents: ancient and long-lived, Turtle represents wisdom of ancient origin. The hard shell of Turtle houses the Earth energies, the powers that are timeless and steady. Turtle is expert in stillness and breathlessness. It goes at its own pace.

Turtle wants you to know that it is ok to slow down, to take time to meditate, to set aside for awhile the work you do in the world. Like Turtle, you go at your own pace. Turtle asks you to be patient. It “bites” you so that you might awaken to your own nature. Slow down and listen to the breath of Turtle. It is gentle and deep. Follow Turtle to its home in Mother Earth.

When Turtle energy comes to you in dreams, it does so to remind you to seek the depths of the creative ocean. You are not meant to remain on the surface, getting battered by waves of worry and grappling endlessly with the drama of survival. You have gifts beneath the hard shell of protection that encases your heart. Release your heart by listening to the ocean that Turtle swims in. Listen and receive…

You have been like Turtle that has been on its back, unable to free yourself from a self-created prison of limiting beliefs and narrow assumptions about unfortunate “circumstances.” And you even feared the tidal waves fast approaching that you believed would dash you on the hard rocks of a world that seems so harsh…and yet the waves come as a way to free you from the stranglehold of thoughts, to awaken you to the depths of the Creative Ocean where you belong…

The Ocean is rising not to destroy, but to remind…
