Tuning Into the Subtlety of Sensations, Part VII

IMG_0044

What is this feeling of “falling into a swoon” especially in relation to connecting with the subtlety of life force? An example of what happens when listening to and feeling  into music that touches us deeply can be useful here. I think most can relate to the experience of “losing” or “surrendering” oneself completely to music or dance. There can be a release of emotions and physical tensions, as well as a release of “thinking.”

If you “get” on a visceral level this feeling of “falling into a swoon” there is an opening here that can be explored. When listening and feeling into music that touches you deeply, notice how the body naturally “wants” to move and sway to its rhythm. However, it is during this period that, instead of getting up to dance or to move in larger ways, to gently hold back and to move in “micromovements” as a way to focus upon and build up the energies in the central core of the body.

Focus upon and feel into the very fine sensations that are activating the body to move and sway. Tune into the most subtle vibrations and experience the mind/body go into trance as it begins to feel the delicate waves and pulsations of Bliss.

The consciousness that apprehends these fine vibrations understands it to be the “Pearl of Great Price!” It is the essence of all sensations felt as One Resonance…and that essence is felt as a fine thread of vibrations connected with a most delicious and delicate sensation of sweetness, deep in the central core of what seems to be the spine.

This sweetness creates an energetic uplift of energy in the body, especially in the spine, holding the body/mind/psyche as though electrified…and the mind and thought processes are as though locked in place by the energetic current, which allows the “Observer” aspect of consciousness to experience little gaps of “no-thought,” the Divine Moment!

Power of the Human Voice – Using the Voice to Manifest Dreams

This post describes the power of the human voice when used as a way to alter mental frequencies for accessing the deepest dream states and to also change for the better any difficult circumstance of our lives. We can use the human voice as “Divine Frequency Modulator” to help us gain conscious entrance to dream states and to also shift the awareness to higher planes or dimensions.

The mind is habituated to certain frequencies or vibrations that it has become accustomed to. The whole experience of life lies within a certain range of resonances, and these make up the spectrum of what you relate to in life. As you learn to slow thoughts down, your frequency changes, allowing for experiences beyond the normal range of perceptions.

Nightly dreams are generated from these slower frequencies. The dream states can be accessed consciously during sleep when you maintain awareness during the transition period between states. The usual habit is to fall asleep as you approach the subconscious realms. With practice, you can learn to maintain awareness as you drift into the land of dreams. It is a matter of tuning into and feeling the frequencies of sleep with awareness.

When you begin to understand the dreamlike nature of the waking state, you will begin to understand yourself connected with a vastly wide consciousness that is dreaming a dream of life through you. Feel and listen now on the inside. Watch and observe; drop into the field of the wider consciousness that is all around you–everywhere.

As you relax and release attachments to thoughts, you will find the energy moving of itself, expressing in ways that does not require any type of thought process that you are familiar with. Immerse now into the flow of the Creative River. It is strong and moves easily and effortlessly. Observe dispassionately. As you do so, the creative voice that wishes to express will find easy manifestation through a heart that is open to the ebb and flow of the cosmic dream.

Step out of the way! As you relax and go into the deeper states of trance, you will find the energy of your Higher Self stepping into your field of consciousness. Allow this to naturally unfold as you observe within. Take note of the different states of consciousness, from wakefulness to the deepest levels of sleep and unconsciousness.

When you fall asleep at night you are in effect entering a different realm of consciousness, a different frequency of awareness. When you awaken you return again to the dimension and frequency of awareness that includes body consciousness and a certain type of mindset and belief system regarding personal identity and spacial location.

The body and world has a resonant frequency that you vibrate along with; and it can sometimes be difficult to change the patterns (your circumstances) even if you wish and pray to do so! The world of vibration has a way of tuning everything around it to its own rate of frequency: a noisy, discordant office with artificial light and little air circulation has very well-known negative effects on body and mind… and yet the mind does have power to change the frequency of the environment through the use of things that are also in the environment. Certain types of music can energize or relax; the sounds of nature such as waterfalls, waves, bird sounds, etc. can have the same effects. The use of drums and rattles can induce deeply hypnogogic states that can open the mind to conscious dreaming.

There is also the human voice which has the range and power to deeply affect the environment and circumstances when used with the twin stallions of emotion and conviction. What gives words power? Vibration! And especially vibrations backed by calm feelings that are connected with the cosmic energy of Divine Love!

If the world weighs heavily upon you, it is because the combined frequencies of fear and hate have created a vibratory quicksand that keeps you trapped and unable to move, caught in hypnotic spell of confusion and inertia. And yet the human voice has the power to shatter any spell or fetter of mind, and can change the environment when used in its role as “Divine Frequency Modulator.” Through its connection with the Divine Source the voice can move mountains of difficulties and change the course of lives!

Explore the power of the voice by first intoning words of Truth with deepest feeling and conviction. Elongate the words, especially the vowel sounds and then listen and feel as the mind enters the deepest states of calm attention. Go deeper still and connect feeling, vibration and words with the Cosmic Source.

Expanding Consciousness – Using Rhythm and Sound to Entrain the Mind (Part III)

The use of listening as it relates to rhythm and sound are ways to induce deep states of trance and for expanding consciousness. Take a moment to listen on the inside. Listen not only with the ears but with the deepest awareness of the most subtle vibrations of thought and feeling. You may hear external noises and perhaps the beating of your heart. You may hear the sounds of breath as it goes in and out. As you listen, the body and mind naturally begins to withdraw energy from external noises, and as you focus within, the inner sounds become more and more noticeable. Listen and focus upon what you hear. Just listen without mental judgment. Allow consciousness to be immersed in the vibration of the inner sound, however it may manifest.

Keep the eyes quiet and unmoving and you may find that the thoughts come to a point of stillness. With closed eyes there is the chance of drifting into sleep, which is not the purpose of this exercise. The idea is to get into a conscious state of deep trance wherein the mind is quiet and yet you are still aware in an expanded way. It helps to keep the eyes closed and slightly uplifted (without straining) to stay awake. With the practice of keeping the eyes still, you will find that thoughts quickly drop away. From the vantage point of deep relaxation, you may find awareness flitting between total lucidity and sleep. By keeping the body totally still (in sitting posture), the feeling of expansion will increase beyond the body. Just observe, without fighting thoughts. The mind then becomes a screen upon which you, the Observer, watches the panorama of thoughts and memories as they pass through. Again, just observe.

The whole purpose of this practice is to allow a glimpse into the wider consciousness beyond the attachments and fickleness of the normally agitated mind. It allows a look into dimensions outside of time. The use of certain chants or mantras can help if you understand the use of vocal harmonics. Vocal harmonics are a way of singing 2, 3 or more notes at the same time. You all produce harmonics naturally through your voice. That is what gives the voice its unique sound. Without harmonics your voices would all sound the same. The conscious use of vocal harmonics magnifies the power of prayers and mantras. It also quickly entrains the mind to enter deep states of trance where much creative work can be accomplished.

When the low note of C on a piano is struck, the other C notes begin to vibrate (creating sound) because they harmonically resonate with the struck key. With the human voice, certain notes can be sung to not only vibrate other notes in the vocal apparatus but to also vibrate different areas of the body, including the organs and the spiritual centers known as chakras.

The practice of toning or chanting can be as simple as singing any of the vowel sounds: a, e, i, o, u. Or it can be a chanting of certain mantras such as “OM”, “HUM”, or “AH” or any combination such as “Om-Ah-Hum.” The idea is to listen on the inside and feel. This combination of rhythm and sound will take the consciousness into deep states of relaxation and trance.

With this practice, the ability to separate the notes (vocal harmonics) will come naturally as your awareness will be able to tune into subtle sounds within and then be able to project them at the same time.

For an example of what vocal harmonics sounds like, click the link to go to “Manaka Studios.”  Allow about a minute for the file to download. It’s an aif file and requires Quicktime Player. A free player can be uploaded here.
