A lot of people think they cannot meditate. This is not true.
As I said in a previous post, if you can sit in a quiet place and focus on the area of your third eye for fifteen minutes, you can meditate. Heck, five minutes is good enough.
While that sort of meditation is beneficial, there are other types of meditation that are extremely powerful. These meditations enhance psychic receptivity, spiritual connection and facilitate our interactions within the world of Spirit. Basically, the deeper into the interior levels you can go, the more you are able to receive.
A brief note: meditation isn’t solely about receiving. Meditation is prescribed by sages and physicians alike for the calming of the bodily systems and the mind. Meditation is shown to reduce stress, decrease blood pressure and mitigate depression and anxiety. Meditation is just plain good for you. However, for purposes of this article, I am talking about the kind of meditation that leads to transcendent and dynamic interactive experiences.
Dynamic meditation speaks to a mental and spiritual state wherein we are more able to receive promptings from Spirit, be it in the form of visions, downloads, information, inspiration and motivation. Dynamic meditation typically gives birth to something outside of yourself — psychic or paranormal phenomena. Dynamic meditation can and should be used by astral travelers, channelers, precognitives, diviners and spiritual teachers. Dynamic meditation usually results in evidences pertaining specifically to spirit interaction and communication.
In order to have these experiences in my own life, I employ a few techniques that might also be useful to you:
1. Tom Kenyon’s Attunements
Tom Kenyon is a powerful channel. His method of channeling is certainly unique; he tones or sings according to the promptings of his guides, called The Hathors. The Hathors are a group of beings concerned with the advancement and ascension of all mankind.
I encourage all of you to visit Tom’s website and check him out. In particular, go to the sound gift section of his website and look up the instructions and downloadable meditations for the pituitary and pineal glands, respectively. The pituitary and pineal both help facilitate psychic ability and spirit interaction.
These meditations have been extremely effective in my own practice. Follow the instructions to the letter to the best of your ability for optimum results.
2. Essential Oils & Incense
Essential oils can be rubbed just beneath the nose or at the area of the third eye to aid in meditation. Visit your local metaphysical store and see if they have an expert there who can offer you a blend of oils to facilitate your experience. Look for the following oils in particular: frankincense, orange/mandarin, sandalwood, rosewood, patchouli, cedarwood, vetiver and bergamot.
Incense operates in much the same way, though should preferably be burned before meditation to set the space and so as not to be distracting. Many of the essential oil scents translate well into incense form and can be used to prepare for your meditation experience.
3. The Solfeggio Frequencies
The Solgeggio Frequencies were used in ancient Gregorian chanting and imparted blessings when sung in harmony — and in Latin — during masses. The tones and frequencies used were transformative and, many say, miraculous.
The six Solfeggio Frequencies are:
UT – 396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
RE – 417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
MI – 528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
FA – 639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships
SOL – 741 Hz – Awakening Intuition
LA – 852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order
Personally, I have purchased meditation CDs which lay specific Solfeggio frequencies beneath music or sounds or tones. These frequencies have the ability to put me right into an altered state, and it’s in this state that I typically create, channel, receive or impart. These are powerful frequencies that can aid any meditative or spiritual practice.
4. Binaural Beats
Binaural beats come about when two different sound waves or frequencies are placed into each ear. This results in the brain creating an audible “beat” as it receives and incorporates both frequencies. Binaural beats basically harmonize the brain hemispheres and allow for easier access to alpha, beta, delta and theta waves, the latter of which is known to facilitate deep meditation.
The Monroe Institute puts out a series of meditation and altered state media based on binaural beat technology called Hemi-Sync. In my experience these put me directly into a deeper, more profound state of meditation than if I were to meditate on my own. Additionally, The Monroe Institute’s Gateway Experience is probably the most powerful tool I’ve come across to enable out of body experiences and interaction with the other side. Anyone seriously interested in these subjects ought to look long and hard into acquiring these CDs or audio downloads.
5. Light & Sound Machines
Light and sound machines utilize just that — both light and sound, at the same time — to induce various brain states.
When the brain receives the light and sound stimuli it does not initially recognize it. It tries to analyze it for recognition for approximately one minute before ceasing all attempts entirely and essentially shutting down (or really, opening up), or becoming supremely receptive. At the point the brain opens, the light pulsation and sound frequencies penetrate to deliver what sometimes can be astounding episodes — some akin to those experienced on hallucinogenics.
There are many different experiences to be had using a light and sound machine, not simply meditative ones. Light and sound machines can help calm or energize you; they can help you become alert and attentive, and they can also help you fall asleep. These machines can help with a lot of things.
However, as it pertains to meditation, light and sound machines can be extremely powerful. I was part of a group of light-and-sounders for a period of time. We called ourselves “psychonauts”and were for the most part interested in dynamic, transcendent experiences.We employed the machines for longer than a person normally would, given the machine’s instructions. What resulted, at least for me, were supremely transformative experiences that led to visions, epiphanies, downloaded information and much more.
A word of caution, however: be careful when using the light and sound machines on your own. My psychonaut group employed the expertise of a trained light and sound technician and hypnoterapist, and, at least in the beginning, I would recommend this for you, too. If you administer the machine on yourself for too long, or improperly, it can put you in an altered state for longer than anticipated, and some say can change your brain patterns long-term.
Toning is essentially a form of singing. An individual should tone along to specific sounds, frequencies or music to match said frequency and, in effect, bring the frequency into the body. When the body houses and runs the frequency, new heights (or depths) of meditation are achieved, causing them to be dynamic.
Toning with the Solfeggio Frequencies, for example, can greatly amplify the affects of the frequencies and accentuate the meditation experience.
