As always, I must speak with a disclaimer that the words here are of my own opinion and interpretation on my views in regards to the Law of One. I would encourage everyone to read the books on their own, which you may find here, in an effort to receive the information free of any distortions that I may unintentionally add here.
I recently got into arguments regarding my interests. They have also have been met with concerns. This was bound to happen and difficult to articulate justification for my interests because it is no short narrative. On top of that, we have centuries of ignorance and bias compounded with misconceptions and social stigmas. So even if I am allotted the opportunity to provide a full narrative to explain myself I have to hope that the individual has the open-mindedness to actually hear and comprehend what it is I am saying. This blog was intended, in part, to do just that and a reminder to myself on how I got here in my beliefs. It was for these reasons as well as helping others in finding their own path which I decided to write this blog. Unfortunately in conversation, I can’t just have someone sit and read the blog before we have a discussion – although it would save me a lot of headache haha.
So concerns for my interests range from metaphysics, PSI, to the occult. Concern was raised that I am playing with evil and dangerous things; however this is from media and a long history of negative social stigma on the subject but not at all reflective of their actual nature. Having always had an interest in such things I was always too ‘shy’ to pursue any of them because of this stigma. I could see those dark aspects to them, but by their nature, I did not feel this was so, but still I kept my distance.
One thing we must all understand is that no matter how positive anything may be, it can always be abused and used for evil and vice versa. The Bible is a great example of something positive, but used by some in very negative and even evil ways. By this simple and common sense philosophy, all things have the potential to be misused and must be approached with knowledge and care and always, always, always with good intention.
What Is Good And Evil?
Ra describes in the law of One that good and evil does not exist. There is only what is. Good, evil, and sin are all creations of our own social complex.
So let us look at this in regards to God. God means something different for everyone, but the general consensus is that God created all things and is all powerful and makes no mistakes. Would it then make sense then that God would create evil that would then engage God in a struggle where God would then seek to destroy that which he created? Does it make sense that God would create sin and ask us not to be that which he has created?
Ra describes that there are two paths possible to our ascension back to the consciousness of the Creator. Service to others, which is of a positive polarity, and service to self, which is of a negative polarity. Both are equally acceptable paths to the Creator. Now most religiously oriented people may find this concept unacceptable, but before you close this blog in disgust let us look into this.
The reality of our existence is that we all are one – this IS the Law of One. Every person, every plant, every animal, every planet, every spirit, every angel, every creation in existence in the past, present and future are all individualized extensions of one single consciousness, the consciousness of the Creator. In an effort to experience many-ness, we were created. One of the most fundamental laws of His creation is free will. Freedom of choice. It is by our free will and choice, that the Creator is able to experience all facets and colors of life. The beautiful, the good, the bad, the ugly. As we ascend to higher densities our consciousness is merged together with others to increase our knowledge and understanding of the universe, while maintaining our individualized self. As a result, the understanding that becomes a knowing, is that to be of service to others (positive polarity) also services yourself, and to be of service to yourself (negative polarity) in controlling and harming others, only serves to harm yourself. As we ascend higher and higher from one density to the next, whether in service to self or service to others, the knowledge is finally gained that we all are one, those in service to self immediately flip their polarity from service to self – to service of others, realizing that service to self only hurts themselves and counter productive to their own ascension.
How To Use This Information
So you see, in the end, positivity will always be the final result in reaching the density of the Creator. I find this process very elegant and very logical. Once you understand this, it will change how you view the universe in regards to good and evil. In understanding this you can more easily, with more accuracy and confidence, distinguish between the two. Here is a controversial example described by Ra in the law of One. Although the Bible is a resource for teaching the law of One, there are many negative influences as well, and like any other resource that is out there you must discern what is positive and what is negative. The ten commandments is an example of a negative influence. Why? Specifically these words, “Thou shalt not…”. These words violate free will, commanding that these be followed without question. As a result it prevented choice and created a division of us vs them. (Note: Laws of the state are allowed as they may be challenged and are in harmony with choice).
The rule is simple, if you do anything that infringes on the free will of another self is of negative polarity. Lies are negative because you are controlling the context of information that violates their free will to act on truth. Intention also has a lot to do with it, as in a lie is negative, but if it is with selflessness and the intention of compassion then this would not be seen as negative. You will find a lot of people challenging their notion of what they do is positive rather than negative, but you will know in your heart if you are trying to deceive yourself or others in this notion. Be honest with yourself and your intent and you will know if it is truly of a positive or negative polarity.
This knowledge is greatly liberating and allows us to pursue life with more confidence – regardless of social stigma for our choices. As I have said, I have shy’d away from interests in the past because of history or social stigmas that make me question if something is positive or negative. Now that I have my own reliable gauge for what is right and wrong I can pursue my life with confidence in knowing that what I am doing is positive. It also allows me to learn and research more freely and with confidence in being able to discern whether the information is positive or negative. If the information divides people, creates fear, or suppresses people in any way, this is of a negative influence.
Although it can seem black and white to what is positive and negative the degree of positivity and the degree of negativity must be weighed in your discernment. For example, you may find that a person for the most part is very positive, but has done something or said something in the negative. You need not dismiss the person for the negative but rather accept the person as the positive person they are but reject the words or actions that were negative. Again, the Bible is another example, there is negative information there. It was written and edited by man. You must make your own distinction on what is positive and what is negative. You don’t need to accept it all as one way or the other, you choose what it is you take to heart and what not to. We all will falter, all we can do is strive to better ourselves and try to accept into our hearts only what is positive.
The Journey Continues
With this new found knowledge and understanding I have taken seriously my pursuits into metaphysics, PSI, and the occult. Particularly I do not like to use the word occult as it has so much history and stigma attached to the word in association to black magic. Defined as “supernatural, mystical, or magical beliefs, practices, or phenomena” – this is accurate to the point that it is free from bias of positive and negative polarity; however inaccurate in that it is not ‘super’ natural but natural, not mystical or magical but is the true reality of things. These pursuits are not an experiment to see what might work or hold truth, I have already done the leg work, through all my research the past few years, I have come to understand with certainty, through countless validations from mystics and philosophers, to scientists and physicists that these things are the true nature of the things and NOT the exception. These are things that continue to elude most of us as they require faith in hand with raising of our vibration to attain it. In doing so, we not only reach our true potential but are introduced to a vibrant and exciting universe as a reward. While all these arts are certainly capable of negative uses and influences, it is always important to continue to discern the positive and negative. I continue to do this, not only in my path, but in my thoughts and intentions. Understanding of the arts in the pursuit of light, in love and compassion, to raise my vibration and awareness so that I may become a better person and perhaps inspire others – these are my interests…
After my phase of studying and practicing under the teachings of Eric Pepin, I was feeling I was on the right path but I was having my doubts about some of Eric’s beliefs and the information he was putting forth. I discussed that in detail in Part 3. I was on the hunt for something else, I found a reference to a book from someone I follow on Instagram, showing glimpses from what looked like a very interesting book. I was deeply intrigued and bought it on the spot. Fewer books have made an impact on me like Becoming Supernatural by Dr. Joe Dispenza. It is a book that honestly evolved me as a person in mind, body, and spirit. This book complimented all of my previous studies, grounded my beliefs, and refined my practices. This was exciting stuff.
Dr. Dispenza brought New Age concepts to more of the mainstream without the New Age grandeur, which is great for the movement. He not only spoke as a genuinely compassionate and intelligent individual, he brought to the table, science, with data and case studies. This was the grounding validation that I had be looking for. It get’s hard to put your all into something on blind faith, in my opinion, this had the data and the logic to back it up.
Becoming Supernatural is a book with a massive amount of information. I am actually a bit overwhelmed in trying to cover the book in this post because there is just so much here. I could go on and on about all the great information here but whatever I say could never give it proper justice. Please read this book. Especially if you are very skeptical to all this; although quite frankly, if you are here you can’t be all that skeptical because with all the crazy shit I get into I figured you’d have left a long time ago… hahaha. But this book helped to validate and ground many of my core beliefs. Because there is so much here, I will just go over some of the key concepts that resonated with me most.
The Mind and Body Connection
As I had mentioned in Part 3 about the imagination, your imagination directly impacts your perspective of the world which in turn affects your reality. Dr. Dispenza took this a step further showing how it affects the physical body with case studies where for example you would have two groups. Over a period of time, one group did nothing, the others would sit in a meditative state and use their imagination alone to picture themselves working out their biceps. They were instructed to feel it and imagine in detail the muscles straining without actually flexing (purely the mind). At the end of the experiment the group that meditated the work out showed a 25% muscle gain in their biceps. This was demonstrated in other case studies as well. Case studies of healing major conditions using the mind were also discussed.
It is no mystery that the mind affects the body. If you are negative, angry, and or depressed; this puts stress on the body, creating an excess of negative chemicals to run through your system and over an extended period of time, will start to exhibit signs of sickness and disease. The opposite can be found, and has been openly acknowledged in medicine and science because it has to be accounted for in their experiments, is the the placebo effect. Positive thoughts and emotions producing healing chemicals and behaviors throughout the body. So if you train your mind to control your thoughts and to dwell on the life or person or the health that you want, this in turn conditions the body to that state. Dr. Dispenza describes this,
” … thoughts cause biochemical reactions in your brain that release chemical signals, and those chemical signals make the body feel exactly the way you were just thinking. Those feelings then cause you to generate more thoughts that make you feel the same way you were just thinking. So your thoughts drive your feelings, and your feelings drive your thought… “
Now this can be a very powerful and positive thing, or it can be a very powerfully devastating thing. This is based on your consciousness. If you live your life unconsciously it means that you live a reactive life. Things happen to you that will then affect your thoughts which then affect your feelings which then affects your body and with law of attraction at play, you are then feeding that same energy back into the system causing it to repeat itself, this puts you in an endless loop. This loop is an example of how we live in the past. As these events, thoughts and feelings get recorded to our memory and similar events occur or we are reminded consciously or unconsciously of those feelings, thoughts, or events, we repeat the cycle all over again.
So the goal here is to live consciously through intent and to reinforce the life that we want by putting our thoughts in positivity and imitating or becoming the way we want to feel, which causes our body to live in this healthy environmental state that you’ve created for it mentally and emotionally. Doing this consistently causes the mind and body to reset – as in, this is the normal state, and it in fact, becomes easier to maintain because this is the norm. While doing this and feeding that energy into the law of attraction, we are then reinforcing that state of energy into the universe and creating a loop of positivity, because this is what we wish to be, we are preparing our body for our future selves.
Organ and Cell Memory
As I described in Part 3 in regards to red blood cells and white blood cells where the white blood cells are seemingly conscious and have memory – this is how they are able to attack diseases more efficiently the next time they are encountered. There also exists memory and energy in our organs. The most significant and measurable is in the heart. The heart’s electromagnetic field can actually be measured from several feet away and actually generates more electromagnetic energy than the brain. Dr. Dispenza describes a case of organ memory,
“The most dramatic story illustrating this involved an 8-year-old girl who after receiving a heart transplant from a 10-year-old girl, began having nightmares about being murdered. The donor had indeed been murdered, and the perpetrator had not been caught. The patient’s mother took her to a psychiatrist who was convinced that the girl was dreaming about events that had actually occurred. They contacted the police, who opened an investigation using the girl’s detailed account of the murder, including information on the time and place of the crime, the weapon, the physical characteristics of the criminal, and the clothing the murderer was wearing. The killer was identified, arrested, and convicted.”
If this sounds outrageous, there are plenty of stories out there describing similar events of transplanted organ patients adopting traits of their donors.
When I first got into meditation, chakras were always a hot topic, but I didn’t get it. I looked at that like other New Age foo foo as something made up to give definition and purpose in handling or balancing your energies, but is all just made up. Eric Pepin described it as electrical centers for the locations associated with them, and that simply acknowledging them by focusing on them activates that energy… okay, that makes a lot more sense. Dr. Dispenza describes it in more biological terms, here is his description of the first, or root chakra,
“.. when your first center (the seat of your reproductive glands) is activated, with energy, its mind has a very specific agenda and intention. When you as a conscious being have a thought or fantasy – that’s consciousness, by the way, acting on neurological tissue – the next thing you know, your body is physiologically changing and therefore so is your energy. Your body secretes chemicals and hormones from those corresponding glands to emotionally prepare you for intercourse. You have more energy in that center now, and it’s releasing its own specific frequency carrying an intentional message. “
This was made a lot of sense me. Describing that each chakra represents a system of the body with their own chemicals, intention, and frequency. So meditating on those locations acknowledges those centers, supplying them with energy from this quantum field or ’empty space’. Feeding them feelings of love and appreciation, that attention activates them to function more cohesively with the rest of body, which inspires healing chemicals and behaviors from within that system. Brilliant, now I understand.
Elevated Emotions and Manifestation (Law of Attraction)
Eric Pepin also describes the importance of elevated emotions because it reinforces intention. Dr. Dispenza put an exclamation point on that which really drilled into me how important it really is. He states that manifestation is the process of broadcasting to the universe, along this universal consciousness wave, a unique frequency or electromagnetic signal of your intent, where complimenting signals would become attracted to and be pulled back to you in the form of opportunities and synchronicities . Your intention from the mind provides the electrical charge. Your emotion creates a magnetic field, together, they form the electromagnetic field. You then compliment that with what I described in The Mind and Body Connection section, where you live, think, feel, and become in your thoughts, emotions and body that which you wish to manifest. I associate it with the concept of fake it till you make it. That is exactly what we are describing. If you do a manifestation meditation to broadcast that signal and in your daily life “fake it till you make it”, similar or complimenting frequencies or signals are going to be attracted to you. If you don’t believe this, think of what you and other people have attracted to your life. For a more contrast example – If you look like a criminal, act like a criminal, talk like a criminal – guess what kind of friends you are going to have? You attract what you put out.
Check out here how Dr. Dispenza describes intention and how it works.
So elevated emotion, I can’t emphasize enough about how important this is. In my development, surrendering to elevated emotion has had the greatest tangible impact. Eric Pepin discussed it so I put it into practice, but after reading Becoming Supernatural, he states it with passion about how necessary it is, so I took that to heart and stepped it up and the results were exponential. As I’ve been developing I’ve been creating my own meditation audio to accompany it. I ended up combining my chakra meditations with manifestation meditations. Because from my practices in the teachings with Eric Pepin, he suggested when focusing on the heart chakra, to play some instrumental music that uplifts you with feeling emotions of gratitude. Dr. Dispenza spoke the same thing and also described it in doing manifestation meditations to evoke the feelings of already having been gifted or achieved that which you wish to manifest. He also stated that the emotion of gratitude is one that should always be evoked because gratitude already projects that the gift has already been received so it puts you in the proper mindset (see the video above). So I thought, well during the chakra meditation, when activating the heart chakra, since I’m already evoking this feeling of love and gratitude, then why not do the manifestation there as well. Kill two birds with one stone (sorry birds) haha. – no birds were harmed in the telling of the joke. ahem…
Anyway, the results were powerful. So much so, that I extended the meditation on the heart chakra for another song. The first song, I use to express my thanks for the blessings in my life. I picture all those close to me that have passed and I picture myself hugging and laughing with each of them. I think about hugging my daughter and just feeling as much love and gratitude as I can. I completely surrender into it. The next song I continue that emotion by picturing what I want to manifest. I picture my dream home in a beautiful jungle lagoon surrounded by green mountains. I picture myself walking out of my bungalow out onto the beach, sand between my toes, and paddle boarding through the lagoon, and as the music climaxes, I picture me and my daughter holding hands and flying over the lagoon just laughing and smiling. Every time, every single time I do the meditation I tear up with tears of joy and gratitude. Its such a powerful feeling… Then I continue to the third-eye and crown chakras. Any sadness, fear, negativity, or depression I had before the meditation is gone 100%, and that is no joke.
Meditation And The After Effects
How It Feels
Let me start by saying that during a meditation, my personal experience is this.. My body feels like a giant sandbag, sometimes it tingles and my body goes numb, but not in a lack of blood sort of way, that feels different, so there’s no danger there. In my belly, I can feel a very distinct welling of an emotion of some kind. If I try to describe it, it’s like this euphoric ball that is growing in your belly and it seems to intensify or increase in size the deeper into the meditation I go. Before it would take a few minutes for the feeling to develop, now I can get it in about 3 seconds. It also sticks around afterward but I’ll get into that in a bit. My breathing goes super shallow, I actually sometimes seem to forget to breath, not in a scary way or anything you just inhale. I end up in a very deep trance, I feel as if it is the same thing as being in a self hypnosis. I actually don’t think there is a difference. My head feels like a balloon, light, airy and expanded.
In meditations you can use your breath, mantras, tones or whatever to help you get into the state, I prefer tones. For me, following the breath in and out and focusing on it going down and up, is too much going on… for me the tone is singular and steady. I try to become the tone, like humming it in my head and becoming the vibration. I balance on it like on a balance beam. You lose focus and fall off, and I refocus and get back on. But this is just me, do whatever works for you.
I’m In The Zone – Time To Play
Inside my airy and inflated head haha, when you are finally in the zone, this is when its play time. Any sort of psychic practice (healing, manifestation, remote viewing, astral traveling, spirit interaction, whatever) will pretty much be applicable here. Not that I’m good or competent at any of those, but you definitely get the feeling of – holy shit this feels freaking powerful, there’s gotta be something to this. This is a very real feeling so you can be skeptical about what all you might be able to do, but for sure you will feel that you should be able to do something pretty powerful in this state. Personally, I want to try it all because who knows what might stick or what I might have a knack for. It’s like getting a new sports car – you gotta try this puppy out and see what it can do! One of the many things I try to do is to expand my consciousness beyond the bounds of my head to make my awareness omnipresent. This is a prerequisite to remote viewing and astral traveling. I am still working on this. I can only get it for brief moments, but its amazing when you get it, because you feel endless. But its a work in progress.
Interaction In The Spirit Realm
I like how Eric Pepin describes in working with things like that. If you focus on it, it will disappear. So if something happens you can’t react or focus on it, you have to sort of soft gaze it with your peripherals and appreciate it but don’t focus on it or you will lose it. He is exactly right. This always happens to me whenever something cool happens then you suddenly focus on it cause its …well… cool… then it disappears and you have to start all over again. You have to train yourself not to react.
My meditations typically last from 40-60 mins. I like longer meditations because otherwise I feel rushed. I also typically resist spoken guided meditations – they are good to start with just to get the flow of a meditation. But what happens to me all the time is that I will be following a guided meditation and then you zone out for a second – then you snap back and you resume following the guided meditation but I lost my place. I was walking in a field now suddenly I’m in space, what did I miss?
Coming Out Of It
After I come out of it, in all honesty, I feel high on cannabis. My head is still floating, my body feels fluffy (not like fat or bloated) haha, sometimes I stumble a bit. The euphoric feeling in the belly is still there. I feel well rested, like I just woke up from a kick ass power nap. Now you can snap out of it and ground yourself by moving around, getting a snack or something. Dr. Dispenza recommends that you lay down for about 30-45 mins and let the healing power of the chakra meditation soak into your autonomic nervous system. I like to sit in a quite place or sit outside somewhere quiet and let it soak in, so I think that’s pretty much the same as what Dr. Dispenza suggests. I like to look around and try to see things in a more conscious way, maybe look for energy cues. Its very relaxing and peaceful, and most of all happy, contented, and blissful.
So depending on how deep your meditations are and how often you’ve been keeping up with your meditation practices, this will dictate how long the effects will last and how intensive it will feel. I’ve been meditating for about 1-2 hrs every 2-3 days for about 1 year now. I meditated the year before that quite a bit, but about 1 year now since I got into doing it very religiously (i hate – dislike that word). What you will notice is that because of the mediation practice of constantly letting go of thoughts and keeping your mind quite, your mind gets used to that and while you are awake, those nagging thoughts are further away and come less often, so you get a much clearer head. Then also, if you start to get negative feelings, sadness, fear, depression – then you treat it like you do when a thought intrudes your meditation, you let it pass. Of course there may be things you need to address and you address them… but you let the feeling pass away. If it is something significant like a death in the family, let those emotions play out first, just don’t dwell on those feelings for too long. What we are talking about is not suppression, it is letting go of things that don’t serve you. Pushing away the worries without addressing the problem is not the way. Push away the worry cause it does not serve you, but address the problem.
So because I do my meditations regularly, if I start to get those feelings creeping up on me more in frequency or I notice that they tend to linger, then I know I need to do another meditation to re-balance myself. Also if I notice my mind is starting to get more distracted with thoughts, I know I need to meditate. If notice I start craving more distractions like games, movies, drinking or whatever, I know I need to meditate – it’s okay here and there but if you find yourself in more of a craving, then that is a sign you need to balance. Although I have had the opposite too, where focusing too much on spirituality, I feel like I need to do those grounding things like have some beer, go out, or whatever, but its not so much a craving of my mind to distract from my reality but rather my soul needs it. I think its my spirit’s way to tell me that I need a balance of all things, so indulge it! But through all that, after the meditation for even days after, I still feel that bliss, contentment and I can even still consciously feel that euphoric ball in my belly. If its a tumor you can be sure as shit I’m going to post a follow up post hahaha – I’m terrible.
My point is here that these are very real and tangible results. If you up keep that balance, you can keep away all those negative feelings and depression. I am currently going on 4 months into my divorce so it’s not like I am in a place where everything is all gravy in my life. I had attempted the divorce years ago before I had done meditation and it was very different. I was losing it. I fell apart emotionally and had a hard time moving forward because I couldn’t think straight. This time it has been hard being away from my daughter – she and I are very close, but as a result of my meditation practice, I can say that I’m about as happy as I have ever been in my life, despite going through the hardest thing I have ever had to face in my life. So to me, that says something about the power of meditation. I’m happy because in my meditations when projecting the emotions of my future self – I am joyously grateful because my ex, my daughter, and I are all happy and are all better for it and that’s worth looking forward to.
My Chakra Meditation Practice
My latest for chakra meditation, manifestation and spirit guide connection can be found here…
I strongly recommend it. It may be for the more advanced that are familiar with and comfortable with maintaining long meditative states (1 hr) and it also incorporates multiple uses but beginners can take it slowly by using say about 15 minutes of it to practice getting into the state, then slowly work into doing the chakra meditations, then elevated emotions, manifestations, then finally incorporating spirit guide connection. Enjoy!
After reading all I could about Dr. Steven Greer I began my search to find out what I could about God Consciousness. There were many other names for this state, the most common was universal consciousness. This in turn led me to Eric Pepin of the Higher Balance Institute. Eric had been a psychic at a young age and came from a family of psychics. It wasn’t until later in life that he got into meditation and discovered the direct link between his psychic abilities and meditation. THIS is what I had been looking for. His approach resonated with me because he focused on the logic of what he was doing and why.
Note : In retrospect, some of my thoughts on him and his teachings have changed. I will get into that later in a retrospective post, but that evolution in my views does not change what I believed here so the information here is still very much valid.
When I first discovered Eric (which is the silliest name for guru haha), I checked out his podcast. His first one, Energy, Part 1: How to See Energy and Auras blew me away and I was immediately hooked.
It was explained in a way that I could truly relate to. I went out and bought all of his books and read them one after the other.
The reason I chose to believe him, is because I first got validation from reading about Dr. Greer and the connection between psychic abilities, universal conscious universe, and meditation. Because of my trust in Dr. Greer, I chose to believe these things were real, or at least there was something to it. Also, Dr. Greer’s books mainly focused on all things extra-terrestrial, which was absolutely and ironically invaluable in my spiritual journey. Eric’s teachings describe the same types of things both spiritually and in meditation but Eric’s primary focus was on meditation, spirituality, and the psychic connection so this was a natural evolution in my education. Because of this overlap I felt that Eric truly had something real to offer. What I also found intriguing is that his teachings were coming from a psychic, who I believed, would have a unique and possibly enlightened view of the spirit world and our connection to it. What made him such a great teacher for someone like me was the way he explained the concepts and how they were practical and useful in a language I could understand (plain english and not New Age mumbo-jumbo, “Harness your chi and merge your awareness with the light.” haha.)
He explained that the quantum energy around us, connects all of us as a universal consciousness. Not just here on Earth, but the universe and the spirit world. All things in the universe exist in their own vibration or frequency. You can interact or communicate with these things if you match your frequency or vibration with theirs. This is where meditation comes in. When you meditate you draw in, or attract, the energy, or prana as it’s called, from this quantum field around you. As you absorb this prana, it enables you to raise your vibration, mostly temporarily; however, doing this regularly can cause a more permanent raise in your vibration, then when you meditate you are able to momentarily reach even higher vibrations. Doing this consistently and eventually opening up the doors to achieving more psychic abilities and enhancing any existing ones. Like any skill or muscle this requires a lot of practice, training, and maintenance. One new thing that was important to know here is that everyone is capable of all of psychic abilities, they can be developed; although of course, some are born naturally with stronger abilities than others, but anyone can develop them.
It’s important to understand the basics of energy. We see energy absorption all the time. When you set a rock out in the sun, the rock absorbs the heat. Bring the rock out of the sun and the rock retains the heat. The density or type of rock determines the amount of absorption and how long that energy is retained. Just like foam is used to absorb water and also sound. There also exists a life energy. We feel this all the time. You feel like someone is staring at you, you get a vibe when a certain person walks in the room. When there is tension “so thick you can cut it with a knife”.
If someone were to enter a room in a rage and take it out on a pillow, beating and screaming at the pillow, then leave the room. Someone else enters the room and picks up the pillow, that person is likely to feel uncomfortable and not know why. If you take some else’s shirt and put it on, do you feel, just for a second, like that person? At least, until your own energy gets absorbed into the shirt quickly replacing the old energy. Objects and people can absorb energy from whatever energy is around us. Some people give us energy others take from us. We use meditation to help balance that. So do crystals work? Yes, because they absorb energy. Some crystals absorb certain energies better. I was finally starting to understand.
In order to achieve anything in meditation, it begins with establishing extended periods of time in non-thought. Your body consists of millions of living organisms. Some are conscious some are not. Take for example your blood-cells. There are red blood cells and white blood cells. Red blood cells mindlessly follow their path carrying oxygen around the body. White blood cells can identify and attack an offending bacteria, communicate for the help of other white blood cells, and learn how to do it better the next time.
Given that the mind is merely a sense. It is just interpreting electrical responses to it. It is NOT who we are. The problem is with millions of organisms each with their own electrical signals flooding our brains along with these external energies we are not able to hear our true selves. Our true intuition. So we must learn to quiet the mind so that we can hear the subtle voice of our intuition. The universe does not speak in words. It speaks through images and emotion. This language is very subtle.
Non-thought is quieting the voices. Close your eyes focus on your breath, tone, mantra, whatever works, and stick to it until you forget that you are concentrating on your breath, tone and mantra. Loosen every muscle, slow your breathing (should happen naturally-at least for me). Thoughts will come and you will want to speak to them. Do not speak to them and let them pass. If you catch yourself speaking which includes “Hey, I’m doing it!” you need to stop and refocus. Sometimes you will be talking to and engage a thought for minutes at a time and not even realize it, once you do, don’t get frustrated, just let it go and refocus…. do this over and over again until for 3+ minutes you can go without engaging the thoughts in your head – then you can get mystical. I personally prefer using tones… I try to become the tone and balance on that tone. It is very effective for me in achieving non-thought. Ultimately though, you want to be able to do it by focusing on the breath because that is always readily available to you. You don’t want to have to rely on anything external., BUT when learning, do what works for you and keeps you interested.
Lastly, don’t be afraid. You may achieve sensations and emotions that are intense that you have never felt before, surrender to it. Once you have achieved non-thought, you are ready to take it to the next level.
Chakras, or power centers in the body, represent major electrical and chemical intersections of the body. Concentrating on filling these centers with energy, drawing energy from the quantum field or ’empty space’, results in balancing those centers. Balancing your chakras results in a balanced well-being of mind body and soul. This ABSOLUTELY works so no smoke up your butt there hahaha… This is often associated with yoga because adding yoga before or after a chakra meditation will go that much further in balancing the body and freeing up obstructions in the flow of energy. Chakra meditations are also required for more advanced meditation techniques and psychic activities because it charges you with energy. Later in part 4, I would learn much more about the chakras, their roles, and their importance, but at this time, this is what I knew of them.
Remote Viewing and Astral Traveling
This universal field is also what allows for remote viewing. Meditation allows your consciousness to vibrate and shift into other dimensions, from here you can achieve remote viewing and astral traveling as Dr. Greer had described. Another reference for this is Paul H. Smith, PhD, who is a founder and past-president of the International Remote Viewing Association. A former Army intelligence officer, he served for seven years as part of the military’s top-secret remote viewing program. Here is a part one of a two part series where he describes how it works. Very interesting.
Connecting To The Spirit World
Because of the universal field, this enables a psychic to connect to someone or something in the spirit world. For example, when a psychic holds something precious from someone who has passed, the psychic will then try to tune into the vibration of that individual. They will try to tune into the energy that was absorbed into the object. They then try to match that vibration to connect with that individual that matches that energy. You then use your senses to try to interpret the messages. The quality of the message depends on how well the psychic can connect with the entity as well as their ability to interpret what is being received. They are not given words to speak; although this can be done through a different medium called channeling, but that’s a whole different post.
What I found fascinating is that this process requires the psychic to have to have confidence in what they are receiving. For example if someone asked the psychic that they wish to connect with their grandmother who died in the holocaust and the psychic immediately sees in their mind an image of a unicorn with a clown on its back, you have to be confident that this is the message and interpret that. So especially, for many years, while you are developing, you could just be spitting nonsense and people would think you are crazy. Its such a hard thing to master and you only have your gut to validate it in that you know that it is not coming from you, but from somewhere else. So its hard to convince people.. hey, trust me, its a gut feeling. But that does not mean its not real.
This is a common theme in meditation and also what I have gathered from Dr. Greer, faith in what it is you are seeing or experiencing is important because otherwise you may dismiss something that was real. Remember the messages are subtle so they are easy to dismiss. The method is to never question or dismiss your experiences in meditation or psychic practice until after the practice is over and you can analyze it; however, in the moment you have to go with it and assume it is a meaningful piece of information or experience. This is sometimes a hard thing to swallow, but it does make sense. Think of when anybody is trying to do something they don’t think they can do, like in sports for example. You always say, you have to believe in yourself, because if you don’t believe in yourself you won’t have the proper mindset and give it your all. It’s the same idea here, you have to believe in it and put your heart into it, or else, like in sports, you may get lucky and still achieve it, but chances are you are not. You have to stack all the cards in your favor. You have to believe and put in the work. It takes courage to believe, it’s an easy out to just disbelieve. There is no risk there. At least give it a shot and put to the test so you can make your own informed decision.
It takes time for you to learn to identify and distinguish what is from your mind and what is from some other source. These are very subtle cues that you feel that you must learn to expose by quieting the mind and learning to identify them. It takes practice with a lot of trial and error, but it does develop.
One very important element in all of this is imagination. This is where the confusion comes in I think, that turns people away from all this (including myself before) because they don’t quite understand this, or don’t believe it. Imagination is what fuels our reality and allows us to expand our outer world as well as our inner world. Now I sound like one of those New Age mumbo-jumbos hahaha.
Here’s an example we see all the time, if you are sad and you dwell on that sadness, everything around you reminds you of how sad things are, from pictures you see, the music on the radio, people’s attitude, everything. It can even influence your health and make you sick. If you are happy and in love, the world is lovely, everything reflects this idea of love. So what’s the difference? The state of mind. Your perspective. Your perspective is influenced by your imagination whether grounded or ungrounded. If you are sad and pretend to be happy and believe you are happy… you will see that shift. Just like positive attitude is a healing placebo for health. The opposite can be said if you are happy in love then force yourself to be angry and hateful, things will deteriorate around you.
Your imagination even controls your memories. How many times have you remembered something different than what really happened? But what you THINK happened is what drives how you feel about that event, that event could effect the rest of you life if that had a strong impact on you. If you were not responsible for a car wreck, but you believed you were, think of the impact your imagination would have on you.
Imagination is used in meditation to bring life and context to something, it can also be a language specific to the individual. For example, if the thing you loved most was this world was a stuffed bear you’ve had since you were a baby and you wanted to express your love for someone who has passed you may imagine handing them that bear because to you, that bear means all the love in the world. That person would know what it meant because its not the bear that matters but the emotion that was behind it. Or the other way around. You fall asleep and imagine this person walking up to you, handing you this stuffed bear. Because this is how you see love, this is a language that is purely your own. This is how your imagination is used as a personal language.
There is an meditation exercise by Eric in cord-cutting where in the meditation you cut emotional ties. So you pretend there is a sword in your hand and you physically move it around your body imagining the cords breaking away and freeing you. You can do the cord-cutting any way you want. What’s important is the intention and the emotion behind it. The imagination just helps as like a shortcut for us to easily make that connection to the intention and emotion we trying to evoke.
If you wanted to throw a ball of energy you would imagine and physically mold this ball of light in your hands and cast it out like Airbender haha. It looks ridiculous, but you are tying intention and emotion together to achieve the result that you want.
Understanding this allowed me to let go of a lot of skepticism and open up to why things can get so weird. haha… For example if you miss your dead grandmother but you are scared to death to see her in a dream, she might choose to come to you as a bunny because it makes you more comfortable. Everyone’s experience in meditation and in spirituality is so varied and so different because all of our imaginations are different. Understanding this also helped me make sense of all the guided meditations out there. I never understood why I have to imagine a field or whatever. There is a feeling and intention they are trying to evoke by having you imagine these things. Understanding this can also empower you to use your imagination more effectively… if you are told to imagine this but its more powerful for you to imagine that… then imagine that instead.
Things were starting to make sense… and oh, it gets way deeper.
Where We Disagree
I can’t thank Eric Pepin enough for the knowledge I gained from him through his podcasts and books. His teachings have helped me tremendously on my journey. That being said, I do have some criticism. I think it is important that you separate the man, from the teaching. You can learn a lot from their teaching and not agree with the man. He tends to play to the guru complex where he will state things that reduce or belittle his students (reader) by saying things to the effect, ‘I have to simplify my descriptions because you wouldn’t understand it at my level.’ or ‘you will understand when you’ve become enlightened like me.’ These are not direct quotes but rather the tone of similar expressions. He puts himself higher than others even though he repeatedly says he does not. It is arrogance. His books are transcripts and not written works, as a result, there is a lot of repeating the same concepts and often times it seems as though he is just making it up as he goes on a particular topic. I feel he needs to always know the answers and therefore always provides one instead of stating, I don’t know.
I came to see this more clearly as I evolved past my Eric Pepin stage to other teachers. I’ve seen a lot of overlap between his beliefs and others so I’m confident in his core teachings but I think when it comes to the details he makes it up. He has a lot of spiritual meditation exercises that I think are fantastic. These do work, which you can tell when you understand about working with elements in meditation like imagination, intent, motion, chakras, and energy. These are great for all sorts of spiritual uses from practicing non-thought, spiritual movement, cord-cutting, spiritual defense, chakra balancing, and more. He is also great on describing what you are looking for, how you know its working, what the purpose is, and how it works. These have all been the strengths that have worked for me and, in fact, shown results in my spiritual development. So just be aware of these things when following Mr. Pepin’s teachings. Take what works but be weary of his philosophies.
There is one belief presented by Mr. Pepin that I firmly disagree about. Mr Pepin states that there are no spirit guides, that they have better things to do than hang around us waiting for us to call. Later on in my development I’ve come to believe this to be absolutely false. This knowing also made me question Mr. Pepin’s connection to the spirit world because this seems to be something quite easily felt even early on in your spiritual development. He spoke of many other entities in the spirit realm but none to be mistaken for guides. This was disappointing but I still stand by what I learned from Mr. Pepin and would still recommend his work because it is great to get a broad overview and foundation for a lot of different topics as it relates to meditation, spirituality, the metaphysical, and psychic abilities but take it with caution. However, as I have expanded my knowledge on the subject I will look elsewhere to further my path.
I created my own custom meditation audio that suited the sounds, flow, pacing, and ambiance that were most powerful and effective for how I wanted to use it. It began with the intent of a meditation for chakra balancing, it then evolved into a very powerful, multi-purpose meditation (without being forced) that could be used for one or all uses at the same time. Including chakra balancing, spiritual energy accumulation, raising your vibration, manifestations, and contact with spirit guides.
The audio had to be powerful and entertaining so you don’t get bored, but at the same time allow for extended focus on tones to enhance the trance state. The audio comes from MANY great sources of sound effects, music, mantras, tones, and other various sounds that I did not create. I simply combined them.
I used wind, rain, thunder, birds, crickets as the natural ambiance throughout. In the places I have lived, I’ve never found storms and thunder to be frightening (unless they are hehe), but rather very relaxing, deeply beautiful, and allowing me to feel very connected to Gaia.
I chose only to focus on 5 key chakras: root, naval, heart, third eye, and the crown. It’s just my personal choice. I think its reasonable to think that the energy from one chakra spills into the near chakras. The five I have chosen, to me, feel like the most important. The chakra tones used throughout use Solfeggio Frequencies and mantras. During the meditation, I do not verbally speak the mantras but rather let them guide me into the trance and set the tone for that chakra.
Preparing for the Meditation
Choose a time when you will not be sleepy so that you may sit absolutely undisturbed for one hour. Turn off your phone.
Make sure your area is clean and free from clutter. Shower and feel refreshed. Its important to have the energy around you and your body and mind cleansed and free from clutter.
Try not to eat about an hour before the meditation as the energy used to digest your food will interfere with raising your vibration.
Avoid any medication including alcohol and drugs. Although this may be fun to smoke cannabis to and can be used to enhance some aspects such as visualizations, it is far more effective and its effects FAR more lasting if is done with a clear mind and body.
Drink lots of water. Water helps to resonate your vibration. Personally I feel as though the water in my body is being drawn into or consolidated somewhere because I get really thirsty and get dry mouth – so lots of water.
Try to keep your electronics away from you. The electromagnetic field will interfere with your own.
Sit comfortably in a chair or on the floor where you can sit for 1 hour without becoming uncomfortable.
This is a meditation of purpose. Make it a ritual. I light sage and smoke the area before I begin. During the session I light a candle and some jasmine incense.
Blindfold. I use a blind fold because I want full immersion. Often you will get visions from the vague and formless, to the unmistakable detail with purpose. I turn off all the lights and use the blindfold so any light around me is not mistaken for what is being seen through my mind’s eye.
Good headphones. This is not just a meditation but a full blown epic experience of the senses, use the tools to best enhance the experience. You will want this loud but comfortable and not distracting. If the volume is distracting, turn it down. On my phone I keep the volume all the way up minus 1 seems to be optimum for me.
Do not anticipate or expect anything. Come into this with no expectations for the results. Let the experience unfold naturally and the the result be its own result.
During the Meditation
Do not be scared. It is important that you not hold back. Let the emotions build as far as you can take them. Feel as much as you can feel. Dismiss the ego and do not be self-conscious. Nobody is watching, let go. A very real feeling will build in the pit of your belly and will continue to grow throughout the meditation. This is normal. Your body may tingle and go numb, but not from a lack of blood so there is no danger here. If you feel a negative energy or presence, firmly command it to leave. You are in charge and have more power living in this dimension than any entity trying to infiltrate it. There is nothing to fear so surrender completely to the experience and dismiss negativity.
Be mindful of any muscles you might unconsciously be tensing… throughout the meditation, every once in a while, do a body scan to see if you are doing this, and relax them. Let them go.
Avoid falling asleep. This is a conscious trance meditation. It is often fun to sleep to, but to use it to its full potential it is most effective being awake throughout.
As with all meditation, if you are talking in your head, you are not in the zone. Sometimes you will feel you are fully centered then suddenly realize that you were talking to yourself in your head for the past few minutes. Don’t get discouraged, simply let it go and return to center. Focus on the steady tone or frequency to hone in your attention. Its like walking on a balance beam… you want to balance on that frequency. Become the frequency. Think singularity. Focus your consciousness, to a single point.
Your First Time
If this is your first time, and you have your eyes close, when you hear a new audio cue (tone, music) you may want to check the sequence to see what it is you are suppose to do during that sequence. Doing this enough times, you will eventually know without thinking and fluidly what you need to do from one cue to the other.
Your goal first and foremost is to reach that trance state and maintain it for 3 minutes or longer. You should not try anything else except for learning how to achieve that. Once you are able to reach that state then the possibilities of the universe open up to you, opening gateways from balancing chakras, raising intuition, healing, astral projection, past life visions, spirit guide contact, and other psychic phenomena and abilities. This is because you become sensitive to subtle frequencies – things that you would not be able to notice with the chatter and thoughts that run through your mind on a daily basis. Magic is in the subtle. Then once you recognize that subtle energy, you can then learn to work with it and create your own magic. It is real. It is tangible.
In the beginning of the meditation, avoid indulging in anything else other than establishing non-thought (not talking in your head). If you hear yourself in your head say, “This is so cool”, you are not there yet. Refocus and start over, but don’t be frustrated. As you do this the distractions will get further and further away and will also become less and less frequent. As you occasionally get distracted and engage those thoughts, stop talking to it and simply let it go and let it drift away. You find that the further in the meditation you are, as those distracts come, and as you dismiss them, you are able to get back into the zone much faster and for longer time before the next distraction. Just keep at.
You will also discover that after doing meditations like this for a while, that in your daily life, the distracting voices and thoughts in your head will start to quiet down more and more allowing you to be able to hear the quiet and subtle voice of your intuition. Develop this.
Elevated Emotions, Intention, and Manifestation
The moments of elevated emotions is a very powerful and important practice. This part of the meditation alone will balance the heart chakra of emotional well being, raise your vibration, and actively use it to manifest your desired state of reality. This is a special part of the meditation because you are digging to elicit a very deep and positive emotional reaction. Let us say you want to manifest healing. You want to feel as if you have already become and are feeling what it is in your life you want to manifest. Make your body and emotions believe you have already achieved it. Feel that immense sense of gratitude for the universe for that gift. Feel how happy it has made you and how it has effected you. Gratitude is the number one emotion to elicit because it suggests appreciation for something that has already occurred and therefore giving you the correct emotion for feeling that you have already received it. Indulge in this.
Every single time I tear up with the immense sense of gratitude and love. To help myself achieve the deepest emotional state I often picture loved ones that have passed and picture myself greeting and hugging each one of them. Thankful for the part they played in my life and asking them to help me in my journey. Ask them and your spirit guides to please unite in raising your vibration to help with this manifestation and prepare you for spirit guide communication later in the meditation. I also picture my daughter and I hugging, laughing, holding hands and literally fly over my dream home, flying over the beautiful landscape I am wanting to manifest for my future. Use whatever works for you that can elicit the most powerful, positive, emotional experience of love and gratitude. Don’t forget to thank your spirit guides and Gaia for their help in what they have done and continue to do for you.
Here is a resource to learn more about how to define your intention and how it works by Dr. Joe Dispenza.
Spirit Guide Contact
Once you have established you are in a trance for an extended period of time (3 mins or longer) you may now play. This is the time you may use visualization and asking questions to your spirit guides or higher self, because you are now able to hear those subtle languages and cues.
Even if you can’t hear them, ask your guides to assist you in raising your vibration so that they may more easily match your frequency to communicate. This is key. As you raise your vibration in time and through practice, the avenues and focus of communication will open up to you.
Ask a question and listen, feel for a response. Ask again to repeat it. It is important to test the guides, they expect it, and it is necessary to determine how best to communicate with one another. You need to establish a relationship. A good start, is when you are in a state of silence, a perfect trance and in the zone. Ask for your higher self or the highest guide receiving you to pass through my aura on my count. 1 – 2 – 3 then ask that they pass through your aura…. Now note any changes at all. Did you see a color? a sound? an image? or feel a tingle or pressure? These can all be significant. Pay attention to them… Then ask to do it again on your count… did it repeat? Use this time to experiment. Be creative in trying to communicate, you never know what might work.
If you have channeled a guide in the form of a conversation in your mind, although the voice will sound like yours, you will know that the content of the message is not coming from you. This is how you distinguish between a channel and the thoughts of your own mind. However, spirit guides will most often communicate through the heart, listen there for your response.
Here is a resource to learn more about connecting with spirit guides by Gigi Young.
Intuitively Solving Problems
Just like with the spirit guides, once you have established you are in a trance for an extended period of time (3 mins or longer), use this time to ask questions of yourself to things you are struggling with internally. Because you are in a centered state, reflecting on issues and problems in your life will be met with a more rational mind and dealt with through your intuition rather than being clouded by your mind and ego. Use this time to confirm your path and help solve a problem or struggle. Let your intuition guide you.
After the Meditation
Immediately after the meditation, keep a journal of the sensations, visions, emotions experienced. Like a dream, shortly after you quickly lose memory of the dream. So its important you write down your experience. Also, like a dream, when you document it you find you will start to remember more as you write.
Eat a light snack to help ground yourself.
What you will find after about 2-3 weeks of regular meditation you will be more in control of your thoughts and emotions (no more roller coasters). When something comes up to upset you it is much easier to move it aside emotionally just like you do when you talk in your mind during meditation – you just let it pass by. You will be more intuitive, because since you are training your mind to be more mindful, you are now more in touch with your subtle intuition. You will see manifestations through synchronicity. You will notice too, that if you stop meditating, after about 3 days you will start to feel edgy, maybe moody, hard time controlling your thoughts – this is how you know that you really need to meditate because you are becoming unbalanced.
