Connecting With the Bliss Resonance, Part I

The resonance of the body (its overall physical vibration), holds the mind in patterns that it has grown accustomed to. These familiar, habitual patterns become the day-to-day “reality” that—over time—becomes like an old window that we can no longer see beyond  narrow constraints of the “house” that we’ve lived in for so long.

A body that is filled with toxins will reflect the vibration of illness in body and mind. If you wish to shift to a higher level of power and capacity, to attract the resources, knowledge and wisdom that make for a more fulfilling life, then the prime directive would be to change your frequency range to a finer resonance that is in tune with the wider and more powerful current (Life Force).

As you begin vibrating at a higher frequency, you also begin to shake up and release the “sediment” of heavy/dark energies…and this may feel like a “detox.” The body seems to require extra time to “catch up” with the higher vibrating frequencies of Spirit…and so it is important to keep the body in good condition (healthy, high vibration foods, exercise, etc.).

The body can also be thought of as a kind of battery and/or pump that is able to store and move energy. Another important capability of the body is that it can refine and distill energy…and with refined energy comes the birth of spiritual vision, connection with Divine purpose and the expression of the unique gifts you are meant to share on Planet Earth.

In the beginning it is enough to “capture” the fleeting moments, the “split seconds” of noticing the sensations of the underlying “hum” of the body. Also, because the sensations are so subtle, there can be a tendency to dismiss or discount them. However, by paying attention, by noticing and acknowledging the subtle “feel-good” sensations (if even for a fraction of a second), you might also come to feel its connection with the wider field or current that can be felt as the underlying “hum” of the body.

These fleeting, “flash-in-the-pan” moments of noticing subtle sensations is oftentimes coupled with split second periods of “no-thought”…as deep attention to subtle vibrations creates little gaps in thinking. This is significant insofar as this experience creates the inner acknowledgement that you have the capacity to consciously and intentionally feel into finer and finer vibrations.

Knowing that you have the capacity to tune into subtlety may not necessarily be a “big bang,” transformational experience of Divine Awakening. Paradoxically however, the experience is hugely significant because it represents a transformative shift in your relationship with Life Force and sense of Self. It signifies your entry point into the Divine Subtlety and connection with the Bliss Resonance!

Focusing Mind for Deeper Meditation, Part XV

The approach that I take with meditation is simple and can be summed up in this way: feeling the overall sensation of the body and then tuning into finer and finer vibrations.

Of course this approach sounds like it “goes without saying” in any meditation technique. However, for me it made all the difference when I began to feel and focus upon the subtle and seemingly insignificant vibrations/sensations of the body.

Another important shift in my approach with meditation was in allowing the Life Force to “take the lead,” similar to the idea of losing oneself in dance, surrendering to the Divine Current, the “Music of the Spheres.”

In this approach, I found that the mind is less likely to wander…and if it does, it is fairly easy to bring it back to “center,” as the subtle underlying current of Life Force has an uplifting, blissful-by-nature, magnetic pull on the mind. In other words, it becomes easier to focus the mind because the inner subtle resonance puts the body/mind into a swoon/trance, an energetic contortion of the body.

It is not a difficult process to connect with these subtle spinal energies (experienced as bliss). However, we can miss it for years/lifetimes, as is what happened in my meditation practice. For want of considering and feeling into what was always available in the moment (the subtle vibrations underlying all sensations of the body) my meditations remained disconnected from the blissful Kundalini energies.

I found that once I started to feel into the overall sensation of the body, with the intention to go slightly deeper, an entryway into noticing subtle vibrations was created. Please note that “slightly deeper” means very small steps were required.

For those who like step-by-step explanations, here is the process in a nutshell: feel the overall sensation of the body…feel slightly deeper (one layer deeper will suffice)…notice and acknowledge the subtle shifts in awareness, of mind going slightly into trance. That’s pretty much it.

The rest is refinement, refinement, refinement…which happens relatively quickly once you’ve made initial connection with the subtle resonance of the Life Force.

Focusing Mind for Deeper Meditation, Part XII

When focusing the mind in meditation, there are no insignificant sensations, as they can all be potential entry points in connecting with the underlying resonance of the Divine Subtlety.

Every posture, every nuance of movement can be connected with the underlying “hum” of creation. This vibration/hum is the distilled essence of all that is felt in the body…and what is deeply felt has a way of focusing the mind!

This hum/vibration includes not only the familiar sensations of the inhaling and exhaling breath, the heartbeat, the weight of the body, etc., but it also includes the not-so-familiar sensations of fine vibrations and reverberations that are accessible but normally not considered.

Mind is like a liquid that fills the container of the body. What you feel can then be infinitely distilled to a most subtle essence…and this essence is experienced as a sensation that puts mind and body into a most delicious swoon!

When the body/mind/psyche enter into meditative trance/swoon, the feeling of the inner squeezing, contortion of the body, is like a churning of “cream” (of life force) in the spine until the “butter” of essence is created. The experience is felt as a ravishing pulsation of sweetness that radiates through the energetic field of the body.

The body/mind, when it “touches” the underlying “hum,” will begin to vibrate in resonance with the powerful current. The mind will be as riveted, focused upon the growing inner sensation that seems to naturally “push” energy upwards in the spine to the crown area.

Understand that the above experience can be described in a number of ways. For example: a giant snake spiraling up and around the spine, squeezing the energy to the crown area. Or…like taffy being pulled to infinite thinness up the spine.

There are numerous traditions describing the movement of the Divine Essence, Life Force, Kundalini in the body and spine. The important point to note is that these traditions (along with their meditative techniques) can be helpful when you actually connect with these infinitely subtle currents.

However, I don’t believe that techniques can impart the experience in a linear, step-by-step progression. They can be helpful in the beginning to establish intention, prayer and discipline, but at a certain point, the rigid practice of technique can get in the way. The Life Force, Kundalini, is such a wild, primal, oftentimes chaotic, disassembling force/energy! The pathway to it is not a neat and tidy, linear and logical, step-by-step process!

With this in mind, once you do have the connection, you will recognize how to use technique to deepen your attunement with this primal Life Force.

I do believe that meditation technique can be useful to prepare the body/mind/psyche for when Kundalini begins to tear your life apart, when it disassembles it, for purposes of putting it back together in a better way.
