Journey into the Self
As you are reading this, take a few seconds to look at yourself and reflect. Just become aware of the five senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch.
See the connection with your immediate surroundings through each sense in turn. Feel the connection to the planet Earth beneath your feet.
Feel the life force come into your body with each inbreath, sense the beat of your heart, the passage of time from day to night to day again and the flow of the seasons.
You are alive whether you think you are or not. Some people may say that life has passed me by, but life is in every part of you from the beat of your heart to the flow of air in your lungs at each level of your physical body.
Take a second to consider the basic layers that a good general knowledge will tell you exist within you. Become aware of your whole body. Allow your mind and imagination to visualise what it would look like if you could see the organs of the body. The cells that make up the organs and the molecules that make up the cells.
See the atoms that make up the molecules and see the fine particles that make up an atom. See these small particles going into and coming out of the silence of pure nothing, like an empty void or a vacuum that also feels full of all possibilities.
At the same time just allow your mind to become aware of the field of energy that surrounds your physical body. And again use your imagination to see the field of energy that surrounds each organ, each cell, each molecule, each atom and each particle. With your feelings feel the silence that exists in the void, feel the potential and feel the love.
Just allow your imagination to look at one atom in your body to see all the electrons spinning around the nucleus. Change your vision and imagine 'what it would look like to stand on one electron. Looking out into the darkness at all the other positive nuclei radiating energy!
Would it look like a person standing on planet Earth looking out into the sky on a dark night at all the other stars of the universe around them? That person may say, I wish I knew if there were any other life in the universe on any of these other electrons, not realising that they are all apart of themselves. But they had just narrowed down their vision to such a small part of themselves that they had lost sight of the whole.
Life is constantly flowing from deep within your heart outwards. You are a spiritual person looking out at the world around you through all these five senses.
Your body is the vehicle that allows you to experience life as a human through your thoughts, words and deeds. Your feelings are what connect you back to yourself.
These layers of energy that surround each layer of your physical existence form your consciousness. Note the depth of consciousness as you drop down the layers of your physical existence.
Then watch your consciousness expand as you drop down into the void, that field of silence like a vacuum that connects the entire universe together. Just know that all the layers of matter come out of this silence. It is the meeting point between each human, animal, plant and physical matter.
This is the field where consciousness flows when we have the experience of telepathy, a premonition. It is the field you travel through when you have out of body experiences.
But in reality you never leave your body; you just move your awareness from one part to another. Just like moving your awareness from your head to your foot. When you feel at one with the whole universe then your body is the universe and you can move your awareness to any part.
What is the universe around you that you experience through your senses? Well your ears hear the sounds waves, your eyes see the frequency of the different colours of light, when you touch a cold piece of steel it feels cold, when you touch a warm piece it feels warm, but what is the difference? 'the level of excitation in the molecules or the frequency and power of their vibration.
When you smell something you feel the vibration of the molecules of that substance floating in the air. When you taste something it is a vibration that you feel. In other words all the senses just tap into a different level of vibration.
You live in a universe of light which is vibration and all matter is just the layers of this light getting grosser and grosser the farther you come away from the silence within your heart.
But you may say, it is not just light 'I feel love in my heart? What is this love, which I feel?
When people fall in love they often talk of the magnetic attraction they feel for their partner.
This light, when it forms into electrons and nuclei, creates polarity of negative and positive. These pairs of opposites then grow into the diversity in the universe as we know it. Up/down, left/right, hot/cold, good/bad, yesterday/tomorrow and male/female.
Electric charge produces electromagnetic fields which we can feel around our body. If we put an EEG (electroencephalograph) machine on our heads we can measure the electrical charge of our brain waves. You could say that the field of energy or magnetic part makes up our consciousness, and the flow of energy makes up our thought waves.
But understand too that these are on many levels, as I have mentioned earlier, as well as the energy field around our whole body. There is an energy field around each organ, cell, molecule, atom, which forms an individual level of consciousness, as well as the connection to the universal mind within the silence of your core energy.
There are also layers of energy/consciousness going the other way. Each family has a layer of consciousness, each housing estate, each town, each country 'until you get to the whole of planet Earth.
But astrology teaches us that all the planets of our solar system have an influence on us and our consciousness. These layers keep expanding out to include all the planets and stars in the Milky Way until you expand out to the Universe or the Omniverse.
Then the whole of that reality may be just a grain of sand on the beach in another dimension. ~
Become aware of the subtle energy centres in the body and your connection to Mother Earth beneath your feet.
Reach up to the stars with your feelings and feel the whole universe as a part of yourself.
Using your imagination, visualise each of your energy centres or chakras opening and starting to radiate healing energy from each centre.
Focus on your connection to the planet. Visualise roots of energy growing out of your feet and spiralling down deep into the centre of the Earth.
As this connection gets established, visualise all the negative, stale energy being drawn down these roots. And, as the stale energy leaves your system, feel an exchange of energy taking place.
Feel fresh, revitalised energy coming up these roots into your body. Feel refreshed, revitalized, full of health, happiness, joy and vitality. Feel at one with the Earth.
Allow your attention to rise up your body to the base of the spine. Visualize your Base Chakra opening its four petals. See a vortex of lovely red energy radiating out. Feel it expanding and swirling all around and permeating through the physical body.
Go through this opening process with each Chakra in turn:
- The six petals of the Sacral Chakra radiating beautiful Orange light.
- The ten petals of the Solar Plexus Chakra radiating a lovely Yellow light, all the colours blending together, bringing balance and healing as each extra chakra is added.
- The twelve petals of the Heart Chakra radiating a soothing Green light. Feel the difference as we move from the lower chakras to the more spiritual ones.
- Allow your attention to rest on your Throat Chakra. See the 16 petals opening and a soft Blue light flowing out, mingling and blending.
- You can already feel your Brow Chakra bursting with energy as your attention reaches up to it. See the 96 petals of the Brow Chakra opening, bathing you in Purple light.
- The Crown Chakra and the 1,000-petalled Lotus is your connection to all the planets and stars in the universe. Just feel the universal White light entering through the crown of the head and bathing the whole of your body in the holistic energy. Feel the auras around your body being healed and repaired by this White light. Allow your awareness to expand and feel at one with the whole universe.
As you bring your awareness back to the silence, notice the change in tone. Even though we are talking of silence, note that it has a tone, or a ring, or a grain within it. Note that with the Chakras open your whole energy frequency seems to have been raised.
Use your imagination to visualise some of your heart's aspirations for yourself and your life. Use all your senses to experience these dreams. You can even run them like a movie over your awareness.
Thinking in the silence is very powerful, as it moves the whole universe to bring you what you desire. Therefore, dream your dream about positive, life-supporting things, which benefit not only yourself but also those around you. Then just let your dream melt into the silence again.
As we start to reconnect with our physical body again, become aware of your Crown Chakra and, as we draw in the petals of the Crown Chakra, feel the energy being left in perfect balance.
Take the awareness to the Brow Chakra. As we draw in the petals of the Brow Chakra, just know that this chakra is responsible for the higher mind functions and sixth senses like Telepathy, Deja Vu, Premonitions, and all the 'Clair's': Clairvoyance, Clairaudience, Clairsentience, etc.
As we take our attention down to the Throat Chakra and draw in the petals, just know that this chakra is responsible for our powers of communication. Not just our voice, but also all the senses of hearing, sight, touch, taste and smell: they all communicate through this chakra.
Passing down to our Heart Chakra, draw in the petals and know that this chakra is responsible for our feelings. This is the connection to finer layers of our self, through all the organs of the body into the cells. Down into the molecules and atoms, right down into the silence of the Void itself.
Now as we come to the Solar Plexus Chakra and draw in the petals, know that this chakra is our emotional centre. Our emotions are stored in the fluids within the body. See the Yellow light of the emotional chakra flowing clearly.
Let's use the process of forgiveness to claim our energy back. For if we project our emotions to another we give away our power. Take responsibility for yourself through forgiving, both yourself and the other person.
As we take our attention down to our Sacral Chakra, just know this chakra connects us through personal relationships with our family and friends. Know that this web of connections to those we love has been cleansed by the Orange light radiating from the Sacral Chakra.
Finally we come to the Base Chakra. As we draw in the petals of the Base Chakra, know that this chakra helps to maintain our physical body and our connection to the Earth. See this beautiful Red light in perfect balance.
As we draw up the roots from the Earth, feel our batteries fully recharged by the energy we have drawn into our body. Feel in perfect balance, full of health, happiness, joy and vitality, as we return to our normal everyday level of awareness.
