Whilst it is perfectly feasible that a religious person is able to display certain spiritual characteristics, and would also undertake some kind of spiritual practice, one who is spiritually awake has no need for a fear-based belief system. Hence, for the one who has awakened no religion is necessary.
Today we are looking at “Snake Breath”; the second of four breathing techniques we will be learning in this series.
Today we are doing the Pranayama Breath. Watch out for Part Three next week.
Here is the first of six videos that will comprise my latest project; “Just Breathe”. Do check out the video for all the information, and stay tuned! Wishing you all a great week!!
Well! It seems like ages since I’ve communicated with you. My PC problems have been sorted and here I am with my first blog post of 2015. It’s been quite a crazy time for me really; I feel like I’m going through a weird kind of transition period and I’ve just not been in the mood to write. For those who have been following my work for some time, you will know that I tend to write a lot about my actual experiences; and as I stated before Christmas, spectacular experiences, especially of the out-of-body type, have been at an all time low. So, it was with great relief that something of note; albeit something completely new, happened to me on the morning of January 21; something that I could actually blog about. Now before I get into the main theme of this post, I will just recap slightly because I’ve noticed that I have a number of new followers and I don’t want to leave them confused.
Since 1999 I’ve had so many out-of-body experiences that it would be impossible to recount them all. They became so common-place that these days I only write about the truly amazing ones. I’ve also had many, many other experiences of a (sorry for using this word) “supernatural” nature; the likes of which most people only dream about. I say supernatural because it is a word people understand; unfortunately, it is a word that’s quite often used to describe all the stuff that gives someone like me a bad name. So, there I was, minding my own business…
It was the very early morning of January 21 and I started to dream. I was in a theatre, it was very dark and I was laying on my back on the stage. There was other people with me but I could not see them; I simply had a knowing sense that they were there. As we lay there, there was beams of what I understood to be harmful microwaves shooting out at us. My understanding of these was that they were being projected towards the Earth by aliens (yes, I know it sounds crazy, but I’ll get to the point soon). The microwaves missed us because we were laying on our backs. All of a sudden, I experienced a state of being that was completely new to me; and I shall explain.
Our dreams may be crazy most of the time, however, the emotions that we experience are very real; indeed, the only real difference between dream state and waking state is that in dream state we tend to experience rather intense emotions and are unable to physicalise. Also, some of you reading this will be familiar with being able to experience yourself as pure consciousness (our natural state) during meditation. When we achieve this state of awareness, it is as though the physical form has simply dissolved away and we become all expansive; we become “all that is” and at the same time, nothing. The key words in that last sentence are “all expansive”. Why? Because, in my dream I experienced the opposite of being “all expansive” whilst at the same time being just that.
Even though I was dreaming I was aware of what was going on. The story may have been nonsense (yes, yes, I know, it probably contained some kind of profound message) but the feeling was very real indeed. I felt myself entering a state of awareness that I had never experienced before; I actually felt quite apprehensive at the onset. Then I found myself in this incredible state; I was “all that is”, but I was within “all that is” as a mere atom. So, in simple terms, I experienced myself as an atom within the infinity that is creation, whilst at the same time experiencing being all expansive. Then the dream just got more and more ridiculous and less and less profound until I woke up.
I’m hoping this is the start of something new and exciting that will give me subject matter for another book! Thanks for following me and supporting my work. Please do leave a comment!!
