Contortions of the Bliss Resonance, Part II

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.

Kundalini “Pattern Disrupt”

IMG_0041

The mind seems to always seek engagement…seeking to be occupied with desires, distractions, temptations, memories, etc. Over time it creates habits of likes and dislikes that then create the patterns of our lives that become the default day-to-day existence.

In losing ourselves to set patterns of mind that we’ve created over a lifetime, it is easy to get swept along in life guided only by habits of what is familiar. Meanwhile, there is an undercurrent of primal forces hidden deep within that remain, for the most part, dormant.

For those who consciously seek to connect with this subterranean “Hum of Creation,” they may find that their bodies can serve as an exquisitely fine “antennae” for tuning into the infinitely subtle vibrations that move through the energetic “field” of their experience.

The body that is tuned to this sublime resonance is “held” as though electrified (or contorted) by the current that flows through the energetic field.

This contortion of the body/mind/psyche serves as a “pattern disrupt” for the mind normally caught in habitual patterns of thinking. The individual is offered a vastly wider perspective and experience of subtle vibrations.

Kundalini Hum of Creation, Part III

Notice the workings of the mind, how it seeks engagement with “objects” of attention, how it moves from point to point, thought to thought, feeling to feeling, etc. By the sheer act of noticing and observing, we get a glimpse of thoughts, feelings, etc. as they arise in the moment…and the whole purpose and benefit of this is to have an experience of the underlying “Hum,” the background resonance of the overall vibration of all that is experienced in the moment.

Notice how the mind, when not intentionally and actively engaged on anything in particular will float haplessly from thought to thought, feeling to feeling, etc. and is easily caught in the thralldom of restlessness, agitation, boredom, desires.

Mind/body/psyche is easily affected and influenced by the vibratory environment it finds itself in, whether by choice or happenstance. It is important to notice and acknowledge the subtle shifts of mind…especially between mind that consciously observes and mind that floats haplessly. In this way, it is easier have the clarity and resolve to choose the mindful state (which grants deep calmness, focus, sense of wholeness).

Tune in quickly with the underlying sensations that are easily felt as an overall resonance of feelings…like listening for the background noise or hum deep within the body. There is no difficulty in doing this! It is just a matter of allowing ourselves to feel deeply!

You may then notice that when the mind is deeply in listening and feeling mode, the thoughts slow down or may even come to a still point (even if for an instant). In that moment, you may have an experience with very fine micro-movements of sensations…with the Bliss Resonance!

In that moment your relationship with life force, with your way of Being, is shifted forever!

To be continued.

Dance of Mindfulness

BruceManakaArt4

The influence of our favorite songs have such powerful sway over our bodies and minds! Have you noticed how the body naturally, automatically wants to move and groove to our favorite pieces of music?

The next time you listen to your favorite pieces (especially dance music), observe how the body wants to start moving. However, before you get up and dance, just feel into the subtle energy of what is wanting to move you. Focus in on the activating sensation and follow it as far and as deeply as you are able to…before moving.

There is such power in subtlety! The subtle “life force” can be felt as the activating inner prompt that shows up as a desire to move. Usually we lose the delicate connection when we just go about our day, unmindful of the finest sensations of the activating energy.

In dance, we have an opportunity to feel the sublime! It is just a matter of learning to “hold” the initial activating sensation and following it to its deepest source within. This is the clue/doorway to the experience of Bliss!

Mindfulness as Dance/Play/Romance

BruceManakaArt4

Mindfulness is a way to tune the awareness immediately to the overall resonance of the moment, to the awareness of “how I feel in this moment.” From this information we are then able to make choices that are more in alignment with how we wish to feel. We humans, if even slightly introspective, will usually want to feel expansive, happy, loving, etc.

Mindfulness accepts whatever feelings comes up, tuning into the overall sensations that arise in the body, along with any corresponding thoughts.

Now here is the great value of mindfulness: when the attention is placed fully on the sensations of the body, following to finer and finer subtlety of vibration, the mind releases its tight hold on thoughts and the thinking process that oftentimes goes ’round and ’round, holding the mind in stories of  “why I feel so ____ (fill in the blank).”

Something interesting happens, besides helping us to “chill out.” It seems that just by placing our attention on any part of the body, the energy and feeling grows/magnifies in that area of the body. The natural movement of mind is then to expand into the “opening” created.

The sensation of this expansion, I believe is the birthplace of creativity. When followed to deeper and deeper subtlety, the feeling moves the body to dance, to sing, to create music, art, etc.

It is easy to miss the benefits of mindfulness (as well as meditation) when “practiced” as  disciplines or techniques. The mindset and approach of one who “practices” discipline and techniques oftentimes does not include the knowing and wisdom of when to release discipline and technique.

When the deeply subtle connection is made with the blissful life force in the spine, the “practice” of mindfulness or meditation no longer has meaning as it becomes more of a dance/play/romance with the creative force moving through the body.
