Throughout the Mastery Ring One series, we cover techniques and practices for feeling our energy bodies, and applying that awareness to different movements, meditations, and actions. In this course, we’re going to take those practices a bit further, and focus on visual development of our energy perception.
Practice 1: Finger Streams
Practice 2: Social Games
Grab a friend, and have them complete this practice with you. After trying it out for a couple minutes, ask them to hold out one of their arms (and pull back their sleeve if they have one, so their forearm is visible).
Connect your fingertips, and expand them to create the threads, but make enough space to fit your friend’s arm in the space between your fingers, with an extra few centimeters on either side.
Ask your friend if they are ready, and then begin to move your fingertips along either side of their arm (without touching them), asking them to describe the sensations as you do so. Focus your attention on watching the space between your fingers and their arm.
Also try imagining what the energy looks like inside of their arm as you do this. Notice if it is easy or difficult to visualize this.
Afterwards, have a conversation with your friend about their experience. If they are not familiar with the human energy field, ask them what they think happened during the experience.
Practice 3: The Field
During either the twilight before dawn, or the twilight just after sunset, go outside and find a comfortable place where you can see trees against the sky (or large bushes). Relax, and begin to focus on the trees.
Look at the tips of the trees, then relax the focus of your vision and look at the space around the trees. Breathe deeply, and let your eyes rest in one location. Let your peripheral vision begin to take one whole tree, and focus your attention on the area around the tree.
Notice any changes that may occur in the tree itself, or in the space around the tree. Let your eyes soak in the field around the tree, and breathe with it. Give your gratitude and love to the tree, and notice if the field changes. Also notice any changes in the sensations inside your body as you do this.
Continue until it grows dark, or until the Sunrise.
Through these very simple, and replicable practices, we have learned to put the most simple principles of the human energy field into practice, and test them for ourselves, both subjectively and objectively with others. With such simple means of experimentation, we may wonder why information about these types of phenomena is not readily available in physics, biology, or even modern psychology.
One reason may be that our current scientific instrumentation has a difficult time detecting the types of energy streams you may have easily witnessed or felt flowing between your fingertips. While we can pick up electromagnetic charge, and layers of electromagnetic fields around all types of objects, this is not thought to be a significant phenomena. While there has been a large amount of research proving that consciousness affects electromagnetic fields, this is not widely known or accepted.
However, most energetic phenomena seem to be taking place at a finer frequency level than our current scientific instruments can detect.
If these vibrations are in fact happening at the Planck scale (10-35 meters), nearly 20 orders of magnitude smaller than the proton (~10-15 meters), this may explain why they have not been accurately measured, and also why the principles behind subtle energies seem to match up with some of the “quantum phenomena” described in the physics of quantum mechanics. This scale is known as the “baseline” where all the information, energy, mass, and forces of the Universe are theorized to intersect. It is theorized in Loop Quantum Gravity, String Theory, M-Theory, and Holographic Mass Theory that energy configurations at this scale create everything in the Universe. Understanding what is happening at this scale would give us a complete Unified Theory of Everything, and is the basis for all Unified Field Theories.
Notably, such a Unified Field Theory would clearly intersect with all field theories involving the principles of subtle energies as well, so we may be closer than ever to reuniting science and spirituality through deeper insights about our reality that are inclusive of all phenomena.
Through developing sensitivity to subtle energies, and a solid framework of understanding about their principles and functions, we gain the capacity to explore the many spiritual dimensions of our consciousness in an integral way. Also, understanding why there is such resistance or ignorance of these ideas in the scientific world will help you communicate about your experiences more easily as you begin to travel the Realms.
If we allow ourselves to release the fear of judgement, and the need for egotistical validation from peers or society, we can begin to focus on what is really important: self-exploration, self-realization, and love.
To do things so that others see us in a better light is Selfishness.
To do things so that others see themselves in a better light is Selflessness.
To do things so that we see ourselves and all beings in a unified light is Selfness.
While selfishness is transformed by selflessness, it is only a greater expansion of our ego’s desire to fulfill its own gratification. Yet selflessness applied through goodness, service, and love eventually reveals our interconnection with all beings, all things, and we awaken to the true Selfness.
Continue exploring this course with a single seed of inquiry:
How can I apply this knowledge and wisdom to know and love myself and others more fully and completely?
Take some time, reflecting on this question, and listen to this epic and timeless track by AZEDIA.
