Contortions of the Bliss Resonance, Part IV

IMG_0043

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!

Contortions of the Bliss Resonance, Part I

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.

Kundalini Hum of Creation, Part V

Do you get the meaning of what is meant in the sentiment of listening to music “so beautiful that it hurts?” That puts you into a swoon? Entranced, dissolved in tears?

There is an invitation that is offered in this kind of music to the deepest places of inspiration. All that is required is an openness to listen to and feel for the subtleties of the music that has “captured” your heart.

As you feel and dissolve into the music, you may find wave after wave of delicious sensations rolling through the body…and especially the spine! There is then a natural, primal movement of the energy (life force) that creates a kind of “contortion” of the body that is an overflowing of bliss. The experience can be on the spectrum of gentle to orgasmic.

The play of this energy is very much like dance…an ecstatic dance and play with the atoms/molecules of finest waves of the underlying Bliss Resonance, the Source of what entrances and puts you in the swoon through the music you listen to.

It’s just a matter of following the sensations of inspiration that are created by the music to its deepest Source, the “Hum of Creation!”

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.

We Are Meant to Dance, Part 6

IMG_0184.jpg

We are meant to dance! Whether on the dance floor, while sitting in a coffee shop, while standing in line at the bank, while shopping at the market…with or without music! The body is meant to move, groove and luxuriate in the undercurrents of subtle vibrations that can be felt beneath the overall resonance of what we feel from moment to moment.

This doesn’t mean you would ever see me dancing at the coffee shop or while I’m standing in line at the market. For me, dancing includes a most pleasurable practice of “micro-movements,” following subtle bliss sensations that can be “embraced” and danced with on the “dance floor” of the spine.

What does this look like? It may not be noticeable to anyone who does not know what to look for. What is happening in the body through “micro-movements?” It can be likened to isotonic movements, except slower. These movements are not driven by mental intent or preconceived forms or exercise. They are informed by the inner experience of the bliss sensation as it moves wave-like and pulse-like through the body.

We’ve grown accustomed to experiencing a certain spectrum of feelings/sensations… and they’ve become familiar, normal, no big shakes. And we recognize this state of being as our day-to-day life, perhaps fairly stable, balanced, maybe even happy…interspersed with periods of sadness, grief, etc.

And then something happens. Some event, a beautiful sunset, a song, or walk in the forest…switches on the awareness of extremely fine vibrations… and most importantly that they are attuned to a bliss response in the body.

It was quite surprising to experience the bliss resonance in my body! More surprising was how close it always was, in the sense that I can remember the “echoes” of its presence throughout my life. It is like smoothly flowing oil moving through the body.

We Are Meant to Dance, Part 5

AwakeIntheDream

On the dance floor, the most intricate and delicate nuances of movements and postures can be explored to infinite depths. In the context of connecting with the Bliss Resonance in the spine, “micromovements” are ways to magnify and hold these ecstatic sensations. And these sensations have corresponding states of mind/consciousness that can also be explored/experienced.

What does this all mean? Very simply, while “grooving” with music you love dancing to, by allowing yourself to deeply feel and follow the activating sensations that make you want to move/dance, the sensations begin to increase in their intensity.

The very act of allowing and feeling these fine sensations magnifies the bliss response in the body. The experience of the increasing bliss resonance then has a way of “grabbing” the mind, holding it in the “geometry” of the sensation itself. I use the word “geometry” in the meaning that the body takes up (on its own) a posture or form…geometry! The energy moving through the body can “feel” circular, triangular, spiral-ish, etc.

The feel and play of “micromovements” are like dancing with silken threads of sensations that can be spun outwards to infinity. Imagine your arms, hands and fingers connected with these filaments of rainbow lights that are connected with the bliss resonance in the spine. It is in the feeling connection with bliss that gives meaning to this visualization. Imagination or visualization by itself (at least for me) is not strong enough to create the somatic experience of bliss. First comes the experience and then the visualization or imagination is created and given meaning.

I seek to connect with those who, like me, feel they have been “charged” to hold and ground the Bliss Resonance for Mother Earth.

Danced by Kundalini

The resonance of the body shifts as you allow yourself to “just be” in your meditation “practice.” The idea of “practicing” meditation falls away as you tune deeper and deeper into the experience of the energetic field, allowing the awareness of its magnetic current to expand naturally and easily. In this way, meditation becomes a doorway or portal to the Divine Current, a great releasing of self to the dance and radiation of Spirit! It may outwardly look like quietly sitting, or it may look like a whirling dance of ecstatic movement. In utter stillness or ecstatic dance, the inner experience is a total abandonment to the Blissful Current!

It is interesting to note that in my serious “practice” of meditation (Kriya technique), my seriousness and adherence to the strict discipline of meditation would ironically and ultimately be the “wall” beyond which I could not, for the life of me, seem to be able to go beyond. I derived a lot of satisfaction and sense of peace from meditation, but after years of “practice,” it became a static routine.

Looking back at those years, it is very easy now to see that I was needing to lighten up… a lot… a whole lot! Now there are many positives that can be derived from being strict and disciplined… It’s just that my narrow focus on technique became a rigid barrier to the openness and fluidity required in order to “feel” the delicate and subtle Bliss currents. I was so intent on “finding God” and “getting into the spine” that I missed Her gentle touch during the many times that She tried to get my attention. I was so busy doing my “108 kriyas” and six hour meditations that I did not know how to recognize her voice, nor did I know how to respond whenever She invited me to “come out and play.” I learned well to hide behind my meditations and discipline.

Connecting with the Kundalini Bliss currents in the spine is in some ways like learning to ride a bicycle… once you learn, you never forget. The point is in getting to that place wherein you viscerally “know” and can “feel” the connection, the sensations that seem to arise from the deepest primordial feelings connected with pleasure, survival, fear, love, etc. We already are familiar with these sensations. It’s just that we humans, for the most part, have forgotten how to “dance” with Kundalini… we have also forgotten how to “be” danced by Her.

This is where “lightening up” comes in… releasing rigidity around the many layers of beliefs and assumptions that we may have about God, Guru, spirituality, techniques, etc. These beliefs may be perfectly beautiful and fine, but the idea is to allow a wider space, a beginner’s mindset in order for expansion to happen. Kundalini seems to require a very large field of play wherever She shows up!

When She does show up, perhaps as a gentle sensation in the spine, it is helpful to relax and “pay attention,” to feel deeply. This may all sound quite obvious, but the idea is to “follow subtlety,” to follow the finest nuances of vibration and sensations as they move in the bodily field. As you learn to apprehend finer and finer sensations, you also learn that the entire body can be thought of as a “Bliss Generating Machine.” You then have learned to dance with Kundalini and to be danced by Her!
