The Art of Understanding Energy

The Breath of the Universe

The breath of universe is a consciousness that links the physical breath to the breath and pulse of the Divine. It can be experienced in its totality when projecting the astral body into it and merging as one, but for those who are not versed in astral projection it can also be used in simple meditation and is a powerful tool for unifying the mind, body and spirit with the universe.

The experience of the breath is all about perception and the senses, so it is through these senses that you observe your breath. Feel it, see it, hear it, taste it and smell it. Allow your mind to touch all these senses, yet do not become involved, simply observe objectively and watch. Look for the subtle areas of these senses. Find the outer limits of your senses, where perception almost disappears. Hold your mind here. By holding your mind here, you stretch and expand your mind.

Observe the nature of your breath. Observe where it feels strong, observe where it feels subtle and released. Notice how far it travels as it leaves your body. Notice how far it travels as it enters your body. Follow it completely to the end of its journey – then send your mind out in this direction. Continue to walk the journey that your breath has begun. How far can you go? Where does your mind stop? Allow this expansion to continue. Notice the walls and barriers of your perception and be at one with them. Do not struggle – if there is resistance, be that resistance, if there is non-resistance, be that non-resistance.

Look for the spaces in between the resistance and allow your mind to melt through these spaces. Melt and expand. Allow the breath to dissolve you. Feel the pulse of the breath expanding ever outward, melting into the universe, becoming one with the universe. Be embraced, supported and empowered by this breath. Understand the power that comes from allowing the breath of the universe to nourish you. Breath as one.



Breatharians are those that have mastered the art of absorbing breath as nutrients and energy for the body. It is an exceptionally high level of mind and body manipulation that requires a deep connection at the cellular level of consciousness. Most serious mystics attain a certain level of this ability – that is that they are able to absorb life force directly from the environment or mummify fruits and vegetables.

It is important to understand that the practice of the Breatharian does not ever need to begin with not eating food. Starvation is not the aim of the Breatharian – the aim is to draw in the purest forms of energy for the body and mind as possible. Many simply choose the middle path and consume only the foods with the highest possible vibrations while at the same time practicing the art of drawing pure prana directly into the cells of the body.

The results of channeling pure prana will always be an increase in energy, vitality, clarity, peace and focus. This is a sure indicator that the body and mind is cultivating the art of the Breatharian.


The Nature of Energy Blocks

Energy is pretty much everything, so in this light an energy block can be pretty much anything from patterns of thought, emotions or physical knots. Blocks are simply weaves of energy. Deep blocks are weaves that have worked into each others spaces, formed subtler supporting weaves and interlocked throughout forming a multi-level matrix. The first step to unlocking a block is to follow the weave. There are several ways to do this, but first it must also be remembered that not all blocks are bad. All blocks have a reason for existing, it is important to understand this reason because sometimes a block is simply supporting our consciousness in its present direction.

The first question that should be asked is: ‘Why does this block exist?’

The second question should be to ask: ‘How would I benefit from removing this block?’

The answers to these questions can be gleaned from moving the mind into the blocks by simply observing objectively – no pushing or prodding of any sort. Dependant on the level of sensitivity, communication will occur in any number of ways. You may observe written contracts spelling out the reason for these blocks; you may view visions of a past or present life illustrating why the block exists, you may hear voices from guides; the knowledge may simply be felt. It is important to observe these responses and only act to remove a block once you understand why it was put there in the first place.

In many ways energy blocks can act like the walls of a hose. By creating obstacles and resistance these blocks can divert energies, emotions and thought forms to moving in specific directions or patterns. Some of these patterns may be necessary in order to fulfill certain intentions. It needs to be understood however that energy blocks will in the end cause the stagnation of energy at specific points of the body and mind. This will lead to dis-ease.

In choosing to remove an energy block it is important to understand that the essential ingredient is simply a connection to the block. Through this connection a communication is formed. By following the weaves until we find the first weave we can communicate a dissolution. Subtlety and focus of the mind must be developed to a very high level in order to reach this first weave. If the mind is not able to remain sharp at these very subtle levels, it will keep missing the spaces through which to follow the path of the weave.

All programs, blocks and mental patterns, can be structured through the workings of these principles. Energy can be set up to support specific patterns, or taken away to dissolve others. By implementing these at specific levels of consciousness, we build a kind of scaffolding in which to support the direction of our purpose and intention. In time the inner structures must be made self-sufficient, strong and flexible, as to not become reliant on the blocks and thus grow stagnant. As long as these phases and cycles of growth are regulated, energy structures can be used to create powerful mediums of intention.


Chakra Balancing

The chakras are portal or structures which help to channel and integrate subtle energies into the physical body. The body has 7 primary chakras but over 2000 secondary ones which help to direct and hold the integrity of our 3 main elements – mind, body and spirit. Since the flow of this triad is always shifting, directed by our intent and consciousness, so too must the chakra system recalibrate and find new points of balance which each shift. In other words, just as our thinking, communication, perspectives and intentions change, so do the requirements of our chakra systems.

The chakra system deals mainly with subtle energy and so for the most part this energy is able to move through subtle shifts of tension within the physical body. With enough subtle tension however, the flow of energy will slow and even stop. The result is that the body, mind and emotions will begin receiving less and less information. Information will result in less understanding and less understanding will lead to less ability. Usually this does not happen in a dramatic way, it may take years, the same way that plumbing can take years to clog up and eventually block the flow of water.

Depending on which chakras are blocked or limited, the physical and mental consciousness will exhibit various manifestations. Blockages in the solar plexus for instance can result in a lack of will or strong intent to take action. This will be experienced in the body as a lessening of the bio-chemicals that create the sensation or emotion of will and purpose. Emotionally and mentally this will be experienced in corresponding mind states such as apathy or boredom. Blockages in the crown chakra will result in a disconnection from the Higher Self, as well as a difficulty connecting to the bigger picture in ones life. Just as with the solar plexus chakra, specific bio-chemicals will correspond to this particular blockage.

The link between the energy of the chakra and the bio-chemistry of the body is simply about information. There is nothing mysterious about it at all. Our whole being exists and survives because of information. There is information between the heart and the brain, information between organs and enzymes, hormones and blood, oxygen and lungs, as well as information from the outside world such as people, books, trees, the sun, the moon, gravity and electricity. Information is influence and expression, through connecting with this information a communication happens. This is the same communication that occurs between the energy of the chakras and the physical body.

The foundation ‘foot in the door’ principles to any type of chakra balancing should begin with simply spending time at the chakra location. Forget about what is written in books, references or even here for that matter. Nothing will compare to actual ‘sit down’ time with your own chakras. Its like spending time with a loved one, kids, friends and so on – we can go out and seek advanced knowledge and professional advice, but sometimes what is really needed is simply to spend time with them. It’s the same deal with the chakras. An amazing amount of communication will open up when we just listen and observe – and in this listening a great deal of balancing and integration will just happen. The results will be seen in the way the physical body feels, the mind thinks, the emotions move and the spirit flows through us.


The Zero Point – The Ultimate Manifestation Power

The zero point is a state of consciousness where no distance exists. This means that the beginning exists within the end, awareness exists with ignorance and power exists with impotence. The reason that this state is so powerful is due to the fact that healing, manifestation and empowerment can occur instantly. There is no pause between here and there, because here and there exist in the same point.

For all things to exist in the same point is to mean that all things are one. It is this unity that allows mind, body and spirit to be one. It is this unity that allows the Shaman to become the wolf. It is this unity that allowed Nicola Tesla to be the mind of technology.

Embracing destruction is important in order to experience the zero point because without destruction we will not conquer our limiting beliefs and emotions. Destruction provides room for movement or creation. Creation creates experience which then opens the way for reflection and observation, which then paves the way for further destruction and refinement.

The zero point consciousness is found through destroying all that is separate. The more that unity is created, the more that separation is destroyed. The creative phase appears as a result of this. Although energy is not actually destroyed, the form, essence and the meaning that it represents can be.

Zero point consciousness has the potential to completely destroy the form, essence and meaning of energies.

It is this power that makes it so valuable to healers and adepts of all kinds. This power is also the reason why complete zero point consciousness can usually only be accessed by those that have spent the time and done the work stretching and conditioning their mind. The conditioning of the mind ensures that along with power, the adept also has control and perception.

Certain technologies and psychedelic drugs are able to connect the mind and body to a relatively strong zero point consciousness and many realizations can be had in this state. There is however no real control, since the very tools that determine control are the faculties that are used to develop a firm and measured grasp on zero point consciousness from scratch.

The massive difference is whether it is the zero point that directs us or us that directs the zero point.

Having the power to manifest and make powerful connections instantly may sound great, but the ramifications are huge if we are not in control. A mind that is unable to focus or manage its many emotional states can and will create more pain and suffering for itself when it has the power to do so. Just as a healer can transpose a diseased state, zero point consciousness can also bring on a diseased state.

The experience is completely different when all the supporting muscles of the mind and consciousness have been developed, and it is the very development that takes place when training with control to connect to zero point that develops these muscles. This provides the ability to create, sustain and manage the profound amounts of energy involved.

This planet has been littered with the corpses of minds eager for spiritual quick fixes and answers, but not willing or knowing enough to do the work required to get these. The answers have always been the same. Lack of control leads to power out of control.

Zero point consciousness is a destination of profound value. This value is only truly open to us when we develop it through the use of our own faculties and senses. It is only then, that we have the control and perception to direct it.


Use Your Illusions ~ Part 2 ~ The Secret of Enlightenment and Meditation

Recognizing that our journey occurs in cycles and understanding the limits and potential of these cycles will allow us to know when to choose illusion and when to choose truth. The journey to truth can bring us through many dimensions, many of these dimensions will bring with them a sense of confusion and overwhelm, simply for the fact that they reflect massive amounts of knowledge, energy and expansion.

Wisdom comes from understanding how to best meet each experience for our highest potential and good. Internally we must recognize how we are responding to the journey and the choices we make. There will be times when revealing truth will be pure joy, at other times it will be draining and perhaps confusing. Recognizing how all the aspects of our mind and body are reacting to the experiences is extremely important for ensuring our success.

It is necessary to understand that while the higher aspects of consciousness may not need as much energy to function, shift and move through dimensions, the denser and physical levels require a lot of energy to transform. Often releases of energy and emotion will accompany these transformations and will require that we rest, revive and give these aspects time to adapt. Full integration at all levels will always require that we respect and honor the limits of all aspects of the self. In particular those aspects that work and transform the slowest.

The adaptation process is nurtured and supported when we understand how to use our higher consciousness to lead and guide the lower and denser levels. Whether we are guiding toward pure truth or working with the specific aim of supporting our physical body and mind, the understanding and use of illusion is important. The more practiced we are with illusion the greater the effect on our body and mind and therefore the greater the effect on our overall journey and destination. Just as important is our sensitivity to understanding what type of illusion is needed.

Through observing and scanning our consciousness we must recognize whether to continue through a specific path or create and practice an illusion of inner strength and clarity in order to find this place first. The order of exploration will make a big difference in how and if the knowledge can be integrated. If we reach a place that is wealthy with knowledge but too intense for our consciousness, then we will most likely miss the opportunity for knowledge and certainly for integration. If on the other hand we recognize that our consciousness is likely not ready to enter this place, then we can work on building inner strength, clarity and openness. Then when we recognize that we are ready we can enter and make full use of the knowledge within.

Illusion will work on all sides of consciousness, it can be used to see what is needed, it can be used to create what is needed, but at all times it is but a guide to reaching and manifesting the real thing. The mind and body will use it like a template with which to match up and find the places, dimensions and feelings it is looking for, and when consciousness meets these places the reality is drawn and merged into us. For this reason it is important that the illusory template that we use is perfectly accurate. The more accurate the illusionary map, the more accurate the reality will be.


Esoteric Alchemy

Esoteric Alchemy is the study and understanding of cause and effect. By learning how to move our mind and consciousness in and out of reality, mind, body and spirit we gain the ability to shift and transform energy and therefore reality.

The art of Esoteric Alchemy begins by learning to trace the paths of reality as they are. Through experiencing these paths and being guided through the doorways that lie within each path, we learn how to discover reality as it is not. Once again we learn to trace these paths. We experience and then are guided through the doorways that allow us to understand how reality as it is not can exist. We learn the rules and how they relate to the rules of our own reality. We experience the opposing “tensions” that allow contradiction to exist.

As the body and mind is guided to experience multiple, contradictory and tangential realities and experiences, the consciousness is directed and made to expand. Training in Esoteric Alchemy is facilitated by pulsing or directing frequencies through specific “gates.” These gates are the waypoints of the personality as it exists at both the conscious and sub-conscious levels. In some ways it is similar to having a good rapport. There is a reciprocal communication happening and we understand how to feed into the conversation. Esoteric Alchemy takes this to an energetic level. The results are that clients can be taken on guided tours with their Higher Self, group astral projection journeys, shown directly how to heal and remove emotional blocks and turn on and off psychic senses.

The main advantages to developing Esoteric Alchemy with a partner or teacher is that the teacher’s role is to watch the inter-changing energies and direct the energies that are needed to facilitate shifts. The client or other partner’s intellectual mind need not be involved to a great extent and for the most part they are able to simply experience the trip. The benefits are much like being a passenger in a car. We are able to see how to get back there as well as take in the little details. The other advantage with a teacher of course is that they will have been there to a far greater depth and will be able to know exactly what is needed to move further, to return and to facilitate intellectual, emotional and physical comprehension of what has occurred.

It is important that the partner or client who is developing their consciousness in this way is given the appropriate support. Awareness, knowledge and experience is one thing, being able to accept and reconcile the experiences is another. Both are necessary in order to sustain inner peace, happiness and a sense of empowerment. Grounding meditation and stretching are two of the easiest methods to facilitate harmonious integration, but those of us interested in serious development would benefit from working with acupressure and meridian therapy, transpersonal psycho-therapists and experienced healers and meditation therapists. This being said if you are keen to explore the basics of Alchemical Healing find a willing partner and begin to play with some of the various energetic techniques that have been outlined in this site in previous articles. Here are some tips for practice:

Only practice with a willing partner.

Bring yourself to a centered and grounded state of mind. Experiment with the difference in practice when you do not center yourself first.

Take your time scanning and observing the inner energy of your partner.

When ever you “remove” an energy make sure to “replace” it with a new energy or the old pattern will return. You may prefer to think of the whole process as transforming the energy.

At the end of the session bring yourself back to a centered state. Clean and clear your energy body and mind. Experiment with how it feels if you do not clear your consciousness. Observe the differences in energy and overall body feel.

These are basic guidelines for Esoteric Alchemy. The practices themselves are developed in a similar way as any relationship of communication is developed – time and practice. Smooth, articulate speech and rapid understanding, the ability to communicate in other “languages” through learning other techniques and being guided through journeys – all of this comes through experience and immersing ourselves in deeper wells of understanding.


Sharing Wisdom – Creating Positive Karma and Awakening the Inner Master

We are as a planet, and group consciousness moving together toward a goal. Sure there is diversity, fluctuation, deviance and tangent – but as a whole there is a certain frequency that we are all maintaining and moving within together. The destination will be decided by the overall intensity. It has been said that it will only take 1000 people becoming enlightened to pull everyone else into the slip stream. Whether you agree or not the concept is worth reflecting on. Any type of development becomes exponentially more powerful as more people take it on themselves to realize empowerment.

The more people who are living a life of empowerment, purpose and meaning the easier it is for others to join the stream of consciousness. The flow of inspired, resonant energy becomes easier to tap into. New heights are always easier to reach when the base that we stand on is stable. This is achieved by creating strong consciousness.

These exact same principles apply to group consciousness as they do to individual consciousness. Any skills that we would develop become more powerful and easier to develop when we have a strong base conscious to reach from.

Sharing our wisdom by actually living it, talking the talk and walking the walk changes the world. We throw a stone of our essence into the river of life and the ripples spread out, affect others who affect yet others.

If our essence has meaning and purpose then others will feel this resonate deep within them. It will inspire and motivate others who seek this same path. As they grow they will support our own continued growth. As others begin to strengthen, stabilize and support the vibration, then it takes less energy for all of us to support the vibration. We can then use it as a foundation to raise consciousness once again.

All of us have most probably felt the effect of a room full of people resonating to certain energies of purpose. Inspired energy literally fills the room with vital life.

Healers of all sorts are on the planet right now. Their gift comes in many packages and in a variety of shapes. Water to revive and sustain life. Compassion to refresh the spirit. Hands to protect and nurture. Words can break the stone covering a heart with the same intent that a smile can bring remembrance to the soul.

The greatest healing has and always will be self-understanding.

Self-understanding follows the parable of “give a man a fish and feed him for a day, teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime.”

Understanding heals because it is the realization of our own true power. Once we see it we realize the truth. That there is nothing to heal, but without realization then we will continue to live in struggle with ourselves.

When wisdom is shared the foundation from which we grow becomes powerful. From this power we gain the opportunity to move higher and broader.

Wisdom is giving of what will benefit and nurture our journey. It is knowledge, it is gratitude, it is words whether hard of soft, it is thoughts, it is interaction – and like all journeys the giving of wisdom must start with where we are and the wisdom we have.

In what way can we now share of what we are abundant? How can we contribute to the journey?

The size and strength of our wisdom is not important, the form of our wisdom is transient. What is essential is that we give of who we are. A child’s laughter can raise the spirits of a household, the knowledge of a student can inspire a teacher – the power of who we are will shine for as long as we continue to be honorable to what is meaningful.

In sharing we affirm our abundance. We affirm our worth and we realize our abilities in supporting a goal that is precious to us. The two become congruent and the path becomes stronger, the way more illuminated. When we do not share then we affirm a lack of abundance. We affirm that we do not have enough knowledge, energy or power – and so we block our own power. We also affirm that the goal is not important enough to us, and so the relationship does not reciprocate.

If you want knowledge then put knowledge out there – let it interact. If you want money then put money out there – let it reciprocate. If you want power then put power out there – let it communicate. If you want enlightenment – then put enlightenment out there – let it be realized. If you want love – then put love out there – let it be felt.

Broadcast your truth in whatever your essence commands. Words, feelings, a smile, a song, thoughts, wealth, creation – expose what is genuine meaning within you and allow it to be seen and heard.

The nature of the relationship formed will be specific to the essence in which we communicate.
Listen for the genuine feeling of that gratitude. Gratitude is the essence of abundance. Come from here. All expression born of pure and true gratitude integrates the realization of abundance into the deepest levels of body and mind.

Abundance goes beyond what we believe we have.

Give one extra smile a day to a stranger – then add a kind word. There will be an instant reciprocation of energy, the ripples of which give the opportunity to understand the essence and levels of kindness. Break a five dollar bill into ones and give five people a dollar each. Observe what you have given and observe what you have received. Are the feelings as you would wish? If not then listen for the genuine frequencies that you desire to give and receive. Wisdom exists here.


Imagination – The Way to Empowerment

The power of the imagination is in it’s ability to change the direction of how we perceive the world. This perception becomes our reality and is the difference between being powerless and being empowered.

Inspiration, purpose, meaning, reason and passion all start from imagination. This is the mind state that allows these aspects to begin, grow and evolve. This is the seed of manifestation into the external world.

Imagination exists in the mind at both the physical and mental level. Through projecting our imagination and visualizing it through our bodies and minds we create.

Whether we believe in the power of imagination or not – it’s power to shape and direct our lives still has a very real effect. If we choose to be conscious of this then we gain the opportunity to change our reactions, direct our perceptions and transform our beliefs.

Left to the devices of an unconscious and habitual mind, imagination will simply continue to play out the same patterns, reactions and perceptions. A directed, observant and conscious mind is the key to using imagination effectively.

The difference between a focused mind and unfocused mind is imagination.

The difference between objectivity and subjectivity is imagination.

As much as imagination can be daydreams and idle fantasy when directed it can also be conscious growth, expansion and vision. Imagination will be the difference between feeling trapped in old patterns, going in circles or connecting with purpose, inspiration and vision.
Vision is imagination and without vision we will never continuously sustain a life with purpose and meaning.

It must be remembered that imagination is mind and so it is the flexibility and strength of mind that will enable us to effectively utilize all aspects of imagination.

One factor that seems to discourage people from developing imagination, is that on initial trial of the skill it sometimes seems weak – we sometimes perceive this weakness as meaning that it is not working. It is working it is simply that our former patterns are stronger at this time.

What is actually occurring is that our imagination is very strong in regards to maintaining our current patterns, but it is new and yet unfocused at creating the new. This is why it is important to develop flexibility as well as strength. The imagination and mind is already very strong. Flexibility allows us to direct this strength appropriate to our vision and desires.

Imagination is perspective. It is the same imagination that embodies the energy of despair. It is the same imagination that chooses a feeling of happiness. The difference is which path has been patterned and chosen the longest. This is the path that will be felt and perceived as reality.

Our bodies and minds must follow the same universal laws. An object once in motion will remain on course until acted upon by an outside force. Even the smallest most subtle of forces will enact a change. Sustain that small force and eventually even the largest of objects will have made a dramatic deviation from it’s original course.

Even the largest mountain can be reduced to rubble by continued action.

When we choose to motivate ourselves, this is imagination. We are building our energy, emotions and feelings to perform. When we choose to push ourselves into apathy this too is imagination – we are gathering feelings, thoughts and energy to increase the apathy.

It’s all imagination.

Imagination is the gear stick that shifts our mind from a perception of unfocused to focused and vice versa. Similarly it will shift us from undisciplined to disciplined, subjectivity to objectivity and delusion to enlightenment.

Mind directs the interaction between trained patterns of bio-chemical release and new actions. By imagining mind and body states, we release bio-chemicals which will inter-react in certain ways. By creating the reaction that we desire we are able to transform old patterns into new ones. This is the process of creating a life of empowerment.


Principles of Dimensional Shape-Shifting

The mind is the portal through which we can experience all dimensions. This is achieved by training the mind to become the key which is needed to open the doors. Quite literally by shaping our minds in a certain way a shift or realization occurs where we are able to perceive and connect with these dimensions. The value of this is understood when we realize that all mind and body states from emotions to expanded spiritual consciousness are dimensional realities.

An excellent foundation for developing our minds to access dimensions is through the chakras. The chakras are gateways of dimensional energy that the body and mind can easily learn to sense. From this sensory base we learn to move through the illusion that the chakras exists only in a certain location*. By learning to work with the mind in specific exploratory ways we allow it to realize that the chakra can in fact exist anywhere on the body, then extending from this – anywhere at all.

*For locations of chakras please refer to the glossary in the sidebar menu.

We need to understand that a chakra’s location is perceived as existing in specific places simply because the mind and body play into this blueprint. Anywhere on the body and as we will learn later, anywhere at all is a potential chakra or energy gate.

We can for instance feel the energy of the third eye chakra through the middle of our calf or for that matter the dining room table.

Location is an illusion which is dispelled when we teach the mind and body to bridge the gap between what we perceive as separate. In and of itself the experience of oneness is a profound and healing experience. Further advantages of learning how to bridge the gap is that we can connect to any dimension we wish anywhere. This goes for emotional, spiritual, physical, or any energetic dimension. We can use this skill to access knowledge, communicate, dissipate negative emotions, create empowering emotions and enhancing healing faculties.

The initial training of shape-shifting teaches us to bridge the gap between objects. It allows us to experience the unity between things and shatters the illusion of separateness. The practice described here of listening to chakra consciousness then moves us into the realm of communication and inter-dimensional awareness.

Begin with this exercise:

Closing your eyes allow yourself to become aware of the area between your eye brows.

Feel for an energy that exists here in this location.

If you cannot feel it then imagine what it might feel like.

Send your imagination out to listen for anything which might be there.

Any thoughts, sights, sounds, distractions – simply let them be. Let them be as they are.

Allow your focus to be placed only on this location and anything which flows from this location.

Allow all else to be like the water surrounding a gemstone. The water exists but we are focused on the gemstone.

Do not be concerned with whether you are focused properly, whether the exercise is working for you or not. By applying your mind in this way, know that it is finding it’s way.

These descriptions are in fact more than the exercise needs to be. Once you have realized the feeling, all descriptions become extraneous. In the beginning however we need these in order to satisfy our minds that we are doing it right. In truth by simply looking and exploring in this area regularly we will begin to see.

It is important to note that apart from the healing and regulating nature of the chakras, that their energy is also a wisdom of their own. It is one thing to control the energy with our minds – it is another to allow the chakras to express and show their own dimensions to us. It is the difference between telling the chakra what we want and listening to what it is.

This is first allowed to happen by attuning our minds to the energy of the chakra. We can then begin to move into it’s dimension – or rather the two dimensions begin to coordinate together. The mind becomes the focal point where this is able to occur.

There is an important skill that is developed here. By giving permission to others to be all that they can be – we are able to realize their power too. When we believe that we know what is best for others and try to control their path we are unable to be fully open to all that they are. There is a perception that we are right and they are wrong. That we know what is best and they do not. A chakra has an essence as much as a human being has an essence and the same principle applies. In fact the same principle applies for love, happiness, enlightenment, peace, joy and so on.

There is a wisdom and intelligence that can only be realized when we allow the universe to “come as it is.”

Without the filter of our expectation, our control and conditions, we are able to experience what these essences actually mean. As long as we place conditions all we truly hear and feel are our perceptions of truth – a far cry from truth itself.

Through listening and learning to “walk in the shoes” of the chakra’s energy, we are able to understand it’s message – then our coordination with it becomes deeply profound and powerful.

As a race human kind has a tendency to use resources whatever these may be without listening and asking. This goes for the earth, this goes for people, this goes for energy. Even in meditation we try to “control this”, “do that” and “make this happen”. It is part of our evolution that we seek to make ourselves “better” – but sometimes better experiences only come through first listening to the knowledge and wisdom that is already before us.

When we seek happiness and empowerment only in what is to come, we take away the opportunity to find it here and now.

Through listening comes understanding, through understanding comes unity. This is where the gap is bridged.

It is ironic that in our attempts to control others we lose the essence of the very power that we are seeking. In allowing ourselves to connect to them as they are – and learning to open ourselves we realize power.

The level of dimensional mind discussed here is sometimes regarded as more difficult to grasp than the usual chakra or energy work – but in fact it is more simple. It is just that we have created complex barriers in the mind. In truth young children would understand this principle in experience if not in words easier than many of us – but therein lies the method and simplicity.

Observe the areas of the mind that would resist. Observe the areas of the mind that are able to imagine possibilities. The imaginative areas are like flowing water. The resistant areas are like dams. We learn to move the flow into the areas that we wish to explore. Leave the resistance to be as it is.

Work with observing all the chakras. Explore the difference between placing your mind at the chakra and allowing it to come to you. Recognize that it is a communication between you and the energy. Play with it. Spending time with your chakras is like spending time with a child – have fun, observe. Build the trust between yourself and the chakra. Communication can only deepen with trust.

Remember that the imagination is the area of the brain that is able to stretch and this is what we are truly developing here. We are expanding and stretching our minds. In time we will want to begin moving and connecting to energies which are far beyond what we currently imagine. Each step grounds us for the next step and allows us greater insight into what is possible.

Expanded consciousness occurs one step at a time.

Keep finding ways to explore the energy of the chakra’s. Then see if you can find this energy at different areas of your body. Explore how far you can move into the dimension of the chakra. Move in so deeply that you become the chakra looking back at yourself. Work with realizing the energy of chakras existing in external objects.

Some of these may feel like a stretch – and that’s how they are meant to feel.

Remember that we are developing a communication. Communication bridges the gap. It is to listen as well as express. To be sensitive to what the connection would like. Through communication we then gain understanding, and through understanding we realize power.
