Straing points



The technique I want to put forward to you can be used both in a more active way – a means towards more self-aware interactions with others or in a more “passive” way (not sure exactly it this term fits here as, although it may be lacking the interaction bit, it definitely helps you to either gain or re-gain some self-aware strength to help you coping with all sorts of situations). To make it fully working way of dealing with straining, challenging occurrences I thought I would put it into a few phases that will help you in a cognitive, energetical and mental/emotional way to deal with what comes along.
1.       Preparation which you may later use to guide you through situations that you KNOW that possibly might be too challenging or uneasy
a)       Sit in a quiet space. Try to breath slowly and not to deeply. If it helps – try to count your breath – every 5 and then again.
b)      Speak to yourself – saying – “I enter my private space where only I can create what I need and what feeds me. I am safe here. No one enters this space and no energy that is not mine is present here. All what is good unfolds now”
c)       Breathe the same way for as long as you can.
2.       Still breathing – imagine a situation which comes across as a challenging or difficult for you. Ponder on it in any way you feel like. Stop if you feel some sort of a tension. Give yourself some time to acknowledge it. Focus on it.
a)       As you are focusing on it – breathe shallow breaths – inhale 5 times building up the air and focus on central part of your body – heart or your chest. After 1 minute still focusing on the problem – release the tension and exhale. Repeat the same process 10 times.
b)      You may do it in one session – just focusing on one problem or tense point. Or try two – introducing yourself to that in the same way. Start with making sure you feel relatively relaxed and aware. It will enhance the whole process and makes it easier for you to relax and process.
c)       After you finish – please cut yourself off. Do it your own way – it may be visualizing anything that is related e.g. a cut piece of rope, the big sign THE END (like in old western movies) or anything that takes your fancy.
3.       Applying the method in social interactions.
a)       If you know you will be experiencing tension, fit of self-doubt or uneasiness in situations that might come soon. Prepare yourself – after some exercise you will develop the special “taste” of energy that you feel during this practice. Keep it in your mind, on your tongue or through any other sensations – I will leave it to you – the more intimate link you have the better. It goes deeper this way.
b)      To help you applying it – I will give you an example:
-          There is a woman that is quite aggressive and talkative that makes you feel uneasy. It’s very difficult to talk to her on rational and sensible terms as she is offish and dismissive. You may feel a bit angry to while dealing with her. Imagine yourself in a circle of friends having a nice drink with her in your proximity asking you questions or just being there and making you feel uncomfortable. What to do? Introduce yourself to the state you developed through breathing practice. You may do it quickly just by snapping your fingers, starting to remember the “taste” while still breathing the same way.
-          Try to initiate the link with your feelings. Be frank with yourself. Let yourself feel uneasy, and vulnerable – being strong doesn’t necessarily comes first. If you identify the feeling – dwell on it – build up the energy by taking 5 inhales, shallow ones and then release it. Listen to this person while still doing it. If you do it in an aware way – you may observe how the whole tension slowly disappears, you may experience something else e.g. certain thoughts, feelings – record them.
-          You don’t necessarily have to seek for challenging situations. Try to re-enact them in your imagination. Dwell on the meaning. It will come
-          Repeat again.

grounding yourself







Before you meditate, or do other spiritual work such as energy healings, divination or magick, you should prepare and protect yourself. You do this by grounding yourself, centering your energies, and shielding yourself from unwanted influences.

Centering:Centering is simply returning all of your scattered energies to home base. Usually throughout the day, you have little energy tendrils out doing things while you are attending to business. Perhaps you are writing a report, but one 'eye' is on the clock, because you have a meeting coming up, and a fragment of your attention is thinking about your children, since one was sniffling this morning, and you also have a fraction of your mind drafting a letter of resignation you know you'll never send.To center yourself, call in all your scattered bits of attention and focus, and bring them into your body's space. You are mentally compacting yourself around your mental or 'spiritual center of gravity'. People have different concepts of where their spiritual center physically is - one woman told me hers was behind her bellybutton. Some people locate it at their heart chakra or their solar plexus chakra. Pull your energies into a tight ball at the location where they seem to want to be at rest - if you aren't centered, you might feel 'psychically top-heavy', as if you were prone to topple over.Pay attention to your breathing while you call in all your forces; imagine yourself inhaling white cleansing energy and exhaling dark, dusty 'busy-ness' and futile wheel-spinning. This process can take 10-15 minutes while you're first learning it, but once you learn the 'centered' feeling, you can center yourself with a few breaths at any time, even while driving your car or walking into that important meeting. 



Grounding:Grounding connects you to the energy of the earth, and is important in healing and magickal works since it prevents you from depleting your own body's energy. Simply put, you connect to the earth by imagining you are connected to the earth. Sounds silly, but it works. Here's how you do it:Imagine you are standing in your bare feet on the ground. (It doesn't matter if you're in your cubicle in a high rise or even flying somewhere on a plane.) Your feet are planted firmly on the bare earth, and by an exercise of your will, you send roots into the earth. As you inhale, you draw energy up through your new 'roots', and as you exhale, you send your roots even further into the earth. Do this for several minutes - you should definitely feel a change in the state of your feeling of 'aliveness'. 



Shielding:Shielding is the process of protecting yourself from the energetic influences around you, and is something you can do independent of grounding, centering, meditating or anything else.Have you ever experienced a day when you were full of vague, directionless anger? or a strange hope inappropriate to your current circumstances? Before you schedule an appointment with a psychiatrist, see if shielding makes these intrusive emotions cease - you may be taking on the energies of people around you, complete with their own imprimature of hope, fear, anger or whatnot.Shielding is a skill that you can use independent of grounding and centering, and when you are going into highly charged situations (a court room, a job review or interview, a family argument), shielding is a vital step in keeping your energies separate from all the swirling energies around you.Shielding, like grounding and centering, is a visualizing process, and everyone evolves their own special shielding ritual. While grounded, draw up energy into your being. Use this energy to form a protective barrier between yourself and the negative vibes of those around you, or random free-floating energies. You can visualize a transparent plexi-glass egg around you - the good intentions and friendly emotions around you are free to pass through your shield, but all bad stuff gets deflected. Some people make shields that reflect negativity back to the source, but this, while perhaps satisfying to one's sense of fair play, still leaves too much negative energy in the atmosphere. Set your shields to 'ground out' any negative energy that impinges on it, and let it flow harmlessly into the earth, where it can be neutralized and recycled into good energy.

Sleep

"Sleep that knits up the raveled sleeve
of care, the death of each day's life, sore labor's bath, balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,
chief nourisher in life's feast. "

relating

...the thing is the diagnosis of your own wishful thinking and how does it relate to the psychological pattern of the person you meet and also on the other hand you need to be careful not to entangle yourself into something that comes out of loneliness that is why many relatioships go int a sphere where none of the lovers would want - they are just the constructs of our loneliness and wish that somebody can fill in that void which is something without any positive perspective, it is part of neurotical process..

the mind map

There is a single Consciousness, the Universal Mind, which pervades the entire Universe. It is all knowing, all powerful, all creative and always present everywhere at the same time. Your consciousness is part of it - it is It. All is One. You are connected to everything and every one. You are already connected what you want. To the degree that you truly comprehend and internalise this Truth, you will be able to become the master of your mind and the director of your life. Each and every one of us is a manifestation of this single Universal Consciousness. There is profound truth in the ancient teaching that we are all One. We are all connected - not only to each other but to all of Nature and to everything in the Universe. This is the Law of One. What you do to others, you do to yourself. The way you treat Nature, you in fact treat yourself. The separateness you "see" is an illusion of the personality ego. The true nature of reality is non-dualistic, meaning that while things may appear distinct, they are not separate. The inscription on the Ancient Greek Temple of Apollo at Delphi left no room for misunderstanding: "Know thyself and thou shalt know all the mysteries of the gods and the universe".
