Meditation seemed like such a boring
thing to me. I didn't understand what it was, how
to do it, or what the goal of meditation was. I
just "skipped" this part of my spirituality. It
just seemed kind of lame and too mysterious.
Then a friend bought me
some "Reiki". To receive this Reiki, I was
told to lie down and relax and just let it
happen. So everyday for 1 week I would lay
on the couch for 1 hour while I received the
Reiki. I actually felt my awareness
traveling like a pin point to the different
parts of my body; the Reiki Master reported to
me later that he had worked on these same
places. I was really amazed.
During this time also I clearly saw a purple dot
which began to go into a circle. I
searched the internet and found out this was a
Shiva Yoni (a yin yang in motion; chakra.)
This really excited me and hooked me on
Meditation and Contemplation are the keys that
open the door to higher knowledge. To
begin to have higher experiences - including
psychic experiences - you must climb the ladder
toward Divinity and away from the senses.
You don't use eyes, ears, nose, sense of touch;
you go in blind, deaf, and dumb. By doing
this, you "turn on" your spiritual senses, your
spiritual organs, and your psychic senses.
You become your own teacher
and you learn directly from interaction between
your spirit, soul, mind and your new sense organs.
The more you use these new senses and organs -
by meditating and entering altered states of
consciousness - the stronger they will grow.
I prefer to go to bed early and
meditate there. The house is quiet and I
am undisturbed then. When I began, I did
not read any how to books or ask anyone
questions. I learned by simply by doing and you can
learn this way to.
I started with 30 minutes
and worked up to 1 hour. If you fall
asleep, that is ok! You probably needed
sleep. If you have trouble nose breathing, you
can buy a neti pot and learn to use it.
When you meditate,
don't worry about what your mind is thinking and
don't try to stop it from thinking either.
The mind will naturally cycle down, let it
happen. The more you meditate, the more in
tune with this cycling down you will become. If
at any time you become scared, feel weird, or
altered states carry you away, focus on your
breathing or pray silently.
bed early. Lay down on your back in a
comfortable position and breath through your
nose. The trick is to not fall asleep, but to
almost fall asleep. You may find yourself
surfing between states of consciousness; that is
where you want to be. If you feel a
"startle" response here and there - that is
normal. That is how it began for me and
that means you are entering different states.
That is all there is
to it! Practice this as much as you
possibly can; the more you practice, the
'faster' you become accustomed to these states
and the more you will begin to enter them
and have experiences.
This is a picture
from the internet I found. This is the basic position I use
in bed. I put a pillow under my knees.
Sometimes I do not use one under my
head. I cross or hold my hands a lot. If you feel a part of your body tensing, relax it. This tensing happened a lot to me in the
During Meditations: I have experienced the
wind outside as blowing inside my legs.
One night, I became the grasshoppers I heard
outside my window. I have melded with
storms. I saw elemental beings. I
felt energy in my body, mostly feet and hands.
I have felt energy vortexes. I have met
spirits. I have been thrust from my body
at enormous speeds and flung into other realms.
I have had kundalini activate all my chakras and
shoot through my head. I have clearly seen
and felt chakras turning. I have given
distance reiki and healed others of common
ailments. I have
melded my energies with others. I became
the lungs of someone sleeping in the next room,
and I began to inflate like a large bag with
each breath they took. I have gone outside
my body just a few feet - quite a few times
(while attempting to see my own body).
but not during Meditation: I have
"seen" thought forms and walked through them.
I have felt sounds in my heart chakra
(hyper-acusis) and I often resonate with them.
At times, I have felt every breath and every
movement, and every good and bad thought of my
family (and the people in adjoining living
spaces - which seemed like a curse at the time) I
have felt and seen thoughts in the form of
arrows being shot at me. I
understand esoteric doctrines and books written
in veiled metaphors by occult writers who refuse
to give away "secrets" to the profane (things I
would not have understood a year ago, before I
began to meditate.) I've been directly
taught about Stones and Crystals by Elementals
