Removal and Defense

Some entities drop off reasonably easily in sitting with them. Others are more challenging and take higher states of meditation. Clearing out the 108 is something to conduct one particular entity at a time, rather than attempting to clear all the entities at once. If forcing it out, in this case go in with conviction and strength in willpower, be willing to challenge and renounce the entity from the vessel, or fully embrace it.

Continuing from the ‘sitting with the devil’ meditation from the previous chapter:

Technique 1: Clearing

Be with the experience and emotion. In sitting with a particular emotional entity, recognize that it is a choice to face it head-on, moving forward confidently in your choice. Bring full attention to the experience, and however the conversation goes, we are going to go back out the door of the room we came in.


We are going to leave all the doors to the room open. Visualize and feel the doors in that room open. Blockages in that area should start to clear. Express to the emotional entity that it is free to go. That it did not belong trapped in that room, and it needs to vacate the vessel entirely.

Visualize a tunnel from the room you have been working with. If you can visualize the two ends of that tunnel on the body, let it clear out from there, or visualize that tunnel to your mouth, then take a deep inhale, opening the corridor tunnel, then exhale the entity out of the room through the tunnel and out of the mouth (or the two ends of the tunnels). Be patient, this may take a few minutes or more.

If it is stubborn and does not want to leave, work on its narcissism and stroke its pride in doing a great job, that you can see how powerful it is, that you look forward to crossing paths again, but until then, time to go, that you are doing a clearing and it is being cleared, and thank it for its service. Use the deep breathing and visualize it leaving with the breath. The breath is a potent tool; therefore, harness its strength.


Feel and envision the breath grabbing hold and encapsulating the entity and visualize it clearing out the room and tunnels. With each exhale, more of the entity is evacuated until it dislodges and is fully expelled from the vessel.

If it is still attaching, remember if you are going to come this far, grasp your internal power, remain in resolve, and do not back down.
Take power back, see the entity in your mind’s eye and expel it with your breath as well as with your words as you verbally cast and breathe it out. For instance, you could say something like:
“I renounce and rebuke you! You no longer have a hold over my vessel; I see you for what you are. This is ‘my vessel’. You (entity) no longer have strength here. I see you and feel your vibration, so I know your name now. I cast you out!”
Repeat over and over, using whatever words or name bring you strength (in the name of...). Then using deep, long lower abdominal breaths. Slightly constrict the throat to make it more powerful and engaged. This allows you to be able to hear the depth of the breath and make a resonance that encapsulates the entity in the breath.

Keep doing long deep breathwork with visualization of it fully exiting you. Like a shadow removed from a body!
When the entity does come out that way, it would not be unusual to have some coughing. Learning breathing exercises assists in these exorcism efforts. Bringing more awareness to the energetic power of the breath. To remove these energetic emotional entities can sometimes be a struggle, and the breath one of the tools.

Technique 2: Self-Illumination

In filling yourself with light and letting your light shine, for situations where you need an energetic tool for defense, this is good to have in the tool kit. Become familiar and comfortable with filling yourself with light before diving into using it to remove energetic blockages. If you become fearful and have not practiced this, it can be challenging to remember, but if this is a tool you have learnedand been practicing, it becomes potent and  easy to draw from.

Imagine a light of any color such as violet, white, silver, gold, green or whatever your personal preference. Envision light emanating from the center of your being, projecting from the Sacral or Heart center. Envision that area glowing brighter and brighter, seeing that light grow and intensify.


Feel and see that light filling up the torso and into the head, arms, and legs to the feet and hands, making your body become a container overflowing with light. So much light it starts pouring out of all the pores on the body, rays of light beaming from your body in all directions as your whole being glows. Grow that light!

Witness that light shining brightly through, all around and beyond yourself. Now illuminated, see how wide and far you can grow that light. Can you grow it to encompass as far as your physical eyes can see? Farther?

Technique 3: Starving the Entities over Time

Learning to align mind, body, and spirit with thoughts, words, and deeds is a process and journey. It does not just happen overnight. It takes repetition in affirmative action over time to get it to stick as a habit. As you develop more awareness, the energetic body strengthens. The stronger the energetic body, the easier it is to remove these entities in getting to a point where they can come and go from your vessel without attachment.

Starving them is to live a Karmatic diet, not seeking the consumption of attachment, allowing emotional or sensational experiences to be as they are without a desire to change them. A state of acceptance; it is, what it is! Allowing freedom of passage.

It is not the goal here to never experience sensations or emotions. We are not trying to keep them hostage in mind and body. We need to rise above them.

This is a form of fasting of defiling ways and building a foundation of a proper Karmatic diet; being that of the right mind, word and action; in other words, virtuous behavior, rather than living in the reactionary state of the opposite spectrum of the 108 defilements. Working virtues such as humility, truth, gratitude, contentment, charity, compassion, love, empathy, kindness, etc. is the way to starve the entities of ego.

A Karmatic diet is a practice to incorporate into mind-bodyblending practices, creating the alignment of the mind, body and spirit with proper thoughts, words and deeds as it is a diet from the earthly defilements in healthy virtuous living, fed by intuition and moral compass. If you are wondering where the technique is, this book is a guide to starve the entities in learning a Karmatic diet of non-attachment and non-identification.

Let this become your key – next time when anger comes, just watch it. Don’t say, ‘I am angry.’ Say, ‘Anger is there and I am watching it.’ And see the difference! The difference is vast. Suddenly you are out of the grip of anger. If you can say, ‘I am just a watcher, I am not anger,’ you are out of the grip. When sadness comes, just sit by the side and look at it and say, ‘I am the watcher, I am not sadness,’ and see the difference. Immediately you have cut the very root of sadness. It is no more nourished. It will die of starvation. We feed these emotions by being identified with them. [64]
~ Osho

Technique 4: Location

There are practices dedicated to identifying and locating an energetic blockage or dark spot through body scanning. One such type of meditation incorporating body scanning is Vipassana, a meditation passed down by Gautama Buddha.


Body scanning meditations assist in learning to tap into the subtleties within the body to find where an energetic emotional entity is. When experiencing a high emotional state, pay attention to the subtleties in the body, be attentive to the feeling of where that emotional entity is located in the body or even feel it move from one location to another. Once found, one method is to use your mind’s eye and envision the blockage in the body.


Now mentally see the blockage shrinking and condensing into a ball, and make it so.


Now move that ball with your mind, see it traveling the path of your choice and see it expelled from the body. Use the channels of the energetic pathways or allow them to expel from the energetic point where they are attached (or out the mouth or nose with the breath). Go over this process repeatedly until you feel the energetic hold broken, and you feel that it is gone.

Using verbal dialogue to assist eviction in this technique can be helpful. Incorporation of the breath through breathing techniques can reinforce this technique, as well as adding in the light technique if desired, to assist in the shrinking or clearing out of any possible remnants of the entity from its attachment to the body’s energetic system.

Remember that each point to which they attach connects to another energy point. It is a tube, like a straw. So, when you are clearing, make sure to clear out both ends and through the tube as one energy node is positive, and the corresponding node negative. The entities connect to both nodes to completely connect the circuit to steer the vessel properly and draw energy. This is how the 108 lock onto the 108 energetic points of the physical body to puppeteer us.

Body scanning with a mindfulness practice allows you to start tuning in and witnessing vibrations across the body and see where there are non-observable areas or dark spots. Then focus on the dark spots, where the vibrations are not felt or witnessed, to bring awareness to those dark areas until they become observable.

This is important because vibrational frequencies are the means to turn and tune in or out the proverbial dimensional channels, becoming aware of the vibrational states. This means learning to bring awareness to the whole being engulfed with the vibrational experience, and then learning to tune the frequency, leading you into new awarenesses.

Technique 5: Breath

Although breathing is a vital function, most people are unaware of its effectiveness and it is underutilized in health, longevity, and consciousness. Breathing practices would be prescribed by doctors and health practitioners if health and preventative maintenance were the true objective. Proper breathing is an awareness of the breath and posture to deliberately develop or keep correct breathing habits.

Conscious breathing techniques are a way to calm the body and mind as well as view from a witnessing state (mindfulness), such as to witness vibrations across and within the body, growing awareness to them and exploring them to connect to the larger whole. The
term conscious breathing is a double entendre in that you are working to become conscious of your breathing in the beginning practices and later finding it is a true connection to consciousness.

A connection to breath and lifespan has been shown through scientific research; animals that breathe slower with longer breaths have longer lifespans. This is clearly visible in rats with an average of eighty-five breaths per minute with the average lifespan of 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 years.

Comparing that to the tortoise or turtle which has an average breath rate of three to four breaths per minute with the average lifespan of around 400 years.

The average human takes between 16,000 and 23,000 breaths per day at a breath rate or respiratory rate of twelve to twenty breaths per minute with the average current lifespan of around eighty years.

How we breathe plays a major role in our health and how we live and engage with life and its stressors, consciously or unconsciously. The rate and mode of our breath affects the entire system of the body from our immune system, the endocrine system, the nervous system and much more. The proper regimented breathing practice will alkalize the body to prevent or repair sickness or dis-ease.

Our respiratory system is set on autopilot, an automatic involuntary action, though it can be taken off autopilot and consciously controlled. Learning proper breathing as well as conscious breathing techniques and practices such as pranayama can be one of your most valuable tools on this venture, as it is a key in dissolving the senses and connecting to consciousness.

We are born with proper abdominal breathing. If you watch an infant breathe, you will notice their belly expands forward and back rather than the chest area. They breathe from bottom up as though breathing into the belly. This is the human baby’s two-stage breathing with the ‘in’ and the ‘out’ breath. Such a simple natural breathing technique. Without the practice of purposeful breathing, we often forget to breathe properly, so as we grow older, many develop poor breathing and lifestyle habits.

Posture plays a role in how we bring in breath with its life-giving oxygen and life energy as well as engagement of life itself. We see poor posture in people who are sick, depressed, or dying or who have just hurt themselves, as the most common instinct in any of the above states is to roll the shoulders forward to different degrees of what is known as the fetal position, in effect receding from the infliction or life itself.


Many are in poor posture, affecting breathing and engagement to life—not from injury or sickness but rather from being reactionary, trapped in the labyrinth of the mind from mental/emotion or sensational infliction and increasingly, the electric device networks.

The fetal position causes short, restricted breathing often occurring in different emotional or sensational situations. For example, during an experience of pain, anger, fear, breath can become rapid and chaotic. From panic, stress or anxiousness, breath can go to being rapid and shallow with the breath only getting into the upper lungs, creating more stress on the body.


Many people unconsciously adopt this type of breathing habit within their daily lives. They live in a perpetual, painful ignorance of how it feels to truly be alive—to breathe to full capacity, enlivening every cell. They know only a fragment of a life, a rudimentary one, never expanded to the fullest.

When someone is in a forward fetal position, moreover, although this can feel somewhat comforting as humans are conditioned to feel that fetal equals comfort and reassurance, it restricts the lungs and heart, compressing them into the lower organs.

Poor posture of fetal breathing causes short breaths into the upper chest, in effect making it so the lungs can never fill all the way to properly cycle stale air from the lower lungs out of the body. Old stale air can be retained there, pushed down for as long as someone has been breathing that way. In that position, you can only intake a small percentage of the air that you should be breathing, which affects the entire supply of oxygen to the organs and the rest of the body’s systems, leading to an acidic body, toxically corrosive to the internal environment.


Short (fast) breathing in improper posture does not allow the body to run at high capacity. If you are giving your body minimum-grade fuel through restricted fuel lines, how could you be running at highest capacity? How could you dare to expect the best performance under such circumstances?

And then, what do we do when the body feels as though it is working sub-optimally? We go to the doctor so we can fill ourselves with toxic pills. We tell the doctor, I am not feeling right. I
think it’s my lungs. And so on, ad infinitum.

And still we sit hunched, never beginning to address the issue for ourselves, never learning to breathe the God-given air all the way into our lungs, never learning how to send oxygen circulating the way it should.

Now, we shorten our lives even further by ingesting poisons on
top of the issues we already had.
So…be still and…breathe.
That’s all
The deeper the breath, the greater the quantity of oxygen delivered to the blood and vital organs, fueling the body while reducing the acidity level and making the body more alkaline, offering a healthy internal environment. The lungs need to be kept replenished with circular air movement, allowing you to use full lung capacity instead of suppressing it.

Try right now—pull back your shoulders, straighten your spine, and see what a difference even that non-fetal position brings about.

The breath also gives rise to three mindful corrections to implement into daily life: breathing, posture, and intent. Since good posture is vital for proper breath, these each become their own reflected protagonists and observers in self-witnessing, often affected by engagement with the mind instead of in mindful observance of the present moment. This brings the intent of being in and with the present moment. Three corrections are a tool in self-witnessing to stay present and deliberately engaged or immersed.

The well-postured individual stands or sits tall at attention, shoulders pulled back, chin pulled slightly back toward the spine, with the tailbone tucked slightly to the heels to engage the core of the body, removing any kinks that are constricting air flow, blood flow or the flow of life energy supplied to the organs and the system in whole.


For instance, let us say you are dehydrated and in need of water, but you can only get water through a straw. No problem, right? Now what if that straw had a 180-degree kink in it? It would make it exceedingly difficult to drink from and rehydrate fully. The same with a hose pipe. You are watering your garden but the hose doubles back on itself. Same concept.

Let us go through a test to see if you breathe into the proper area to bring in the highest quality fuel for yourself. Take your hands and put one on your chest and the other on your stomach. Now take a deep breath and pay attention to which hand rises.


If the hand on your chest raised first, you breathed incorrectly. If the hand on the stomach rises first, you have a head start, as you are using proper two-stage breathing (baby’s breath). If you are breathing into the abdomen and the breath is rising up from there, there is another test: take your hands and put them around your waist a couple inches above the hips; thumbs should be around where the kidneys are on the back, your index finger and the rest of the fingers wrapping around to the front of the body.

Breathe in. Does the belly expand just forward, or does it expand forward and back as well as maybe up, or is the lower torso expanding equally in all directions? The goal is to get the lower torso to expand equally all around, traveling up. This allows for full use of the lungs’ capacity.

If you are just starting to work on this form of breathing, I suggest sitting or lying down, as if you have been unknowingly limiting your breath when you circulate and get rid of old stale air from the lower lungs and start bringing in more oxygen, you may get dizzy, light-headed and possibly pass out. This is from all the oxygen flooding your system and your system not being used to it, so having your head near the ground makes this safer for beginners. I suggest on your back, knees bent with your feet flat on the floor as this helps with posture. If you do this sitting or standing, be in good posture.

Baby’s Breath or Belly Breathing

Begin with breathing into your nostrils, feeling your lower belly as it fills with air, as though the air you are bringing in is water dropping to the bottom of a vessel as it fills up, bringing your breath into the lower part of the lungs. This extends the stomach all directions, then feel it filling up and expanding into the upper lungs in the chest, allowing the chest cavity to expand and lift the shoulders slightly up. Finally, allow the breath to continue into the top of the head.

Use visualization of this along the process.
Now, exhale (out breath).
Allow the exhale to start from the stomach. The breath should be flowing up and out from the abdominal region to the upper lungs and out of the nostril, while the breath brought into the head falls to the lower lungs (abdominal region) as it then follows the rest of the breath up and out via the nostrils, in effect creating a circular breath.

On the exhale, allow about eighty-five percent of the breath to just feel as if it falls right out. Bringing the air back into the lower areaof the lungs and filling up is what brings up and circulates out the fifteen percent of air remaining in the lungs from the previous out breath. The timing of this breath can start at a three-count on the ‘in’ breath and a four-count on the ‘out’ breath, becoming progressively longer or shorter with breath times while experimenting with this two-stage breath.

At first, when working this ‘in’ and ‘out’ belly breathing, just focus on the breath and the sensational experience of it throughout the body, paying attention closely to form, working to reprogram your breathing habits. Eventually, with practice, you will start breathing this way without thinking about it, making it so you can use the breath as a marker to see when there is a disturbance. Disturbances are most often accompanied by a change in breath.

You can also use this as a time to train yourself to clear your mind.

As you breathe ‘IN’, keep your mind focused on the task at hand, thinking as well as feeling the ‘IN’. As you breathe ‘OUT’, think and feel ‘OUT’. Repeat over and over. As soon as you recognize that you are distracted, tune back in to the in and out of the breath. The mind stays with the breath in this fashion. Eventually, this becomes a form of blending the mind and body to enter a state of absorption/immersion.

If you find the mind wandering, it is good you see it rather than continually losing yourself in it, a development of the watcher perspective. Now bring yourself back to the task. Distractions will enter; move past them, witness them, but keep mindful of the in and out of the breath in the moment of it.

Do not allow yourself to get frustrated when you find your mind or body wandering. It is what it is, so be grateful of your awareness that you can observe it is happening so you can bring yourself back to the task in being mindful of the breath. The faster you keep catching yourself and bringing yourself back, the faster you learn to control your mind and breath rather allowing them to control you, and harmonizing.

What we call ’I’ is just a swinging door, which moves when we inhale and when we exhale.[65]
~ Shunryu Suzuki

You can also do this two-stage belly breathing by adding a visualization, even using colors to assist in also illuminating yourself; pick a color and visualize it coming into your nostrils on your inhale, cycling in an oval through the body, the breath circulating up into the nostrils and up to the top of the head, then down the spine. The breath and the color are one as the breath flows down the spine, spilling into the bottom of the belly. Here, it fills to a few inches below the belly button/navel and starts expanding the belly through the back, sides and up.

See the color you brought in and visualize it mixing and changing into another color from the point a few inches below the navel. Visualize that new color dropping down from the belly, down the legs into the feet, filling all the way up as that in breath, then lifting into the torso and up into the top of the head. The breath and the color being as one, see that color bringing nutrients into and throughout the body. Visualize that color going into your veins, arteries, nerves, and meridians, bringing the light to the organs and other innermost
aspects of yourself.

See it moving out, allowing the color to flood out of the pores all over your body to the top of your head. See the color/light pouring out of yourself as your breath is exiting on the exhale, allowing the belly to be what drops first rather than the chest. And repeat... This becomes a daily, all-day-everyday practice.

The real gems are in turning this two-stage breathing into a fourstage breathing practice by adding a hold on the end of each in- and exhalation.

Inhale, hold, exhale, hold.

Each of the four stages of inhale, hold, exhale, hold should be held progressively longer with more time and attention to the hold stages. This is about a progression in awareness, so learn proper twostage breathing then move to learning the four-stage, or practices that blend the two in compliment of each other.

Inhale, and God approaches you. Hold the inhalation, and God
remains with you. Exhale, and you approach God. Hold the
exhalation and surrender to God. [66]
~ Krishnamacharya

Pranayama is one of the forms of breathing arts. It teaches new internal awarenesses, an advanced goal being to reach 108 breaths in a day. I go in-depth on breathing and breathing techniques in Dissolving the Material World through Dissolving the Senses of this book series.

Here is an additional simple but profoundly effective practice to help reduce tension in the body. Try this now. Take a deep inhalation, feel it filling your lungs from your abdomen and expanding up. Hold that inhalation for a few seconds, then let it out, verbalizing the word relax as you exhale. Repeat a few times. How do you feel?

Now, we are going to add a constriction of the muscles in one tight muscle group area at a time. This is going to be passive and aggressive. Passive on the inhale and exhale, aggressive on the inhalation hold, like the cosmic breath, yin and yang. Inhale, hold the inhalation and constrict the chosen set of muscles. Hold that. Exhale, releasing the constriction and verbalizing relax as you relax into the out-breath.


Repeat as many times as desired. You can—and should—do this with all muscle and tendon groups from head to toes.

Now how do you feel? Differently than before? More relaxed?

Did you feel the tensions and weight falling away with the exhalations? Do you have more energy? Most of us do not use anywhere near the capacity of air the lungs are meant to supply, meaning that we miss out on the energy that more oxygen would give to us, as well as the healing effects of releasing toxic waste products. Why is this? Our brains were not designed to process the amount of information that we currently receive.

Rather than taking in information slowly, processing it through the higher-ordered thinking parts of the brain, the information comes through so rapidly that it goes to the more primitive parts of the brain. The primitive part of our brain is designed for our survival. When hit with this much information, it goes into a bit of a crisis mode, putting us into the fight-flight-or-freeze response.

Since we often cannot fight or flee, we end up freezing, holding our muscles tense and breathing shallowly. Many people have become so accustomed to living this way that they no longer notice. That is why it is important to remind ourselves to take long deep conscious breaths, releasing tensions and keeping one in a mindful state.

Technique 6: Mindfulness

Mindfulness is about being present and aware of what you are doing as well as the experience of it in a witnessing state. Mindfulness isthe most basic skill in meditation practice, and is something you can develop through self-observation. For development of mindfulness, it is vital to do daily work on concentration practices until you develop the ability to not forget what you are doing during daily activities as well as during meditations.

In a mindful state, you remain aware of what you are doing. It is important to develop the ability to be aware of what you are doing at all times if you wish to tame the monkey mind and further develop your meditation practice to reach a true state of immersion. If you are forgetting what you are meditating on, getting distracted or drifting away, this shows the need to develop more concentration.

Any concentration practice should be at minimum one twenty-minute sitting a day, though two are better, while working up in time.
I suggest not using timers; they become a distraction.

A simple mindfulness practice is to focus on the area of the nostrils as you breathe in and out of the nose. This is not a focus on the breath; just allow the breath to be as it is. Stay present and mindful of the triangle of the nostrils, using the feeling of air going in and out with the breath as a means of staying present. How does it feel in that area? Cool, warm, itchy, tingly? Stay with the experience in that area since it is in a constant change.

Another mindfulness practice is to chant a mantra internally, remaining unwaveringly focused on the chant. Or unwaveringly focused on a visualization, such as visualizing a candle flame or a pendulum swinging in the mind’s eye.

An addition is to place attention on something you want to understand
and visualize it, holding it in the screen of the imagination—the mind’s eye. If there are thoughts emerging, remember you are working to suspend them from your mind, allowing everything below visualization and imagination of the focus to be suspended.

Through the body, thoughts and emotions will work to attract attention. They will dance around in front of you like an irritating fly over a picnic, saying I am here, look at me!
If or when something happens there—which it will—do not pay attention to it, just ignore it and simply continue observing where your mindful attention is focused. You may be aware of it, but the goal here is to not engage with it, putting those aspects to rest, stabilizing mind and body, disengaged from emotion or sensation. This will allow you to come into true mindful focus on whatever you are holding in the mind.


When becoming immersed—whatever that new thing is that you become immersed in—just observe it in the same way that I am expressing about observing everything else: with equanimity, without excitement, clinging or rejecting to remain in that conscious state.

For example, when engaging a mindfulness meditation focusing on something like part of the body or inner world, a mantra, memory, experience, thought, emotion, a teaching or event you seek to gain insight on or bring awareness to, if you do immerse in it, something new penetrates the focus. Then you become emotional, such as excited, grasping or rejecting, and instantly, the focus becomes disturbed, where the mind will start up with the intellect and emotions, taking you out of a conscious meditative state interrupting the experience, again limiting perception.


Keep in mind if in an actual immersed state, you will not be limited to moving with the physical body. Instead, move with the will of the mind, moving around where you WILL.

There are no barriers to where you can travel with localized consciousness, yet so many of us spend our lives being ‘entertained’ by movies, computer games and suchlike, greatly underestimating the power of the mind to transport us to boundless destinations in far more fruitful pursuits.

Technique 7: Grounding

Grounding, in the most simplistic terms, is to connect to earth, a direct physical connection to the earth or bare skin to bare earth.

You as a human and earth are both living beings, each with their own electromagnetic energy fields. By connecting your body to the earth, you allow the transfer of energy between the two energetic organisms as nature intended by design.

Grounding supports the multiple energetic systems in your body alone, the entire body being one big electrical system composed of multiple secondary electrical systems all affecting the individual areas that run the human machine.

Grounding is a vital practice to allow the body’s energetic system to run correctly and at high efficiency, allowing high energy fluctuations to ground out in the same way as you would ground electrical systems to redirect electrical surges to the earth. Electrical surges that build up in the body create ailments (dis-ease), two of which are inflammation and irritation. Being disconnected from the Earth’s energy that should be moving in the natural ebb and flow
of life, causes one’s personal energy to become stagnant rampant chaotic energy.


Nature intended for the Earth to absorb specific energies while providing our bodies with other energies they need, connecting to the Earth and completing a circuit. An incomplete
circuit depresses the vessel.

Energy is meant to flow, not to be trapped, just like emotions.


Various types of energies flow through us, and the Earth assists in keeping many in proper flow. Two of these energies are viewed primitively as physical and emotional.


Humans and the earth each exchange positive and negative ions, the earth being negatively charged, and the human body positively charged. The earth being negatively charged, makes it so when we connect to the earth, it pulls negatively charged energy ions from our body through that energetic connection. There is an exchange in return, as we draw positively charged energy ions into our bodies.

This connection in grounding allows excess energy from surges to have an alternate route to dissipation, rather than damaging the circuitry within the machine (body), according to its design.

Energetic surges put the body in overload to repair damages throughout, causing irritations, frustrations, foggy headedness, inflammation and more. This affects the cells throughout the whole structure of the body.

Walking around all the time with shoes on concrete, tile, wood or asphalt allows a lot of negative ions to build up within the body. This keeps building until it discharges, as we need the positive ions that we exchange with the earth for negative ions. This natural process is hindered by a lack of grounding. One way the body shows a symptom of this is through having the bottoms of your feet become itchy, feeling little pricks and pins or even the feeling of electricity moving on the bottom of your feet.

The way to ground to the earth is to place your bare feet on the natural earth and just allow that energy to dump into the earth. You can add a visualization of your feet and hands growing into roots and digging into the earth, connecting to all the things the earth is connected to. Using your mind’s eye or mental imagery, see and allow yourself to feel the energy drop into the ground. Feel and see the energy you are exchanging with the earth, allowing your breath to become in sync.

Grounding happens on its own, though intention and focus assist as ‘Where attention goes, energy flows’.

Positive and negative ions are floating around in our bodies, and fluctuating ions can get trapped. Rubber, wood, concrete, asphalt, etc. interrupt proper grounding to the earth for the proper exchange.

Grounding in the Shower

We can do this with emotional energy as well as our electromagnetic energy, as we are both emotional and electromagnetic beings.
Allow emotions to come to the surface. Let your mind do as it wishes and just be a witness to it all. You are engaging in a conscious breathing technique while fully remaining with your surface emotions and feelings.

Take nice long smooth breaths. Witness the ‘stuff’ you have been holding on to, those burdens weighing you down and feel your breaths to be like the water washing down your body from the top of your head, down your face and neck.

Connect to your breath, feeling the weight that has been on the cheeks of your face and the back of your neck start to just melt away into your shoulders as you take a long exhale.


Feel the weighted energy drop progressively with each exhalation to the heels and bottoms of your feet, feeling your toes and feet rooting through the floor into the earth and out into the water, then feeling the water washing away that energy down through your torso and down the legs as you continue taking long deep breaths.

Feel the weight of the remaining energy drop from your body as each exhale falls from you, carrying the energy away with the water. Visualize all your burdens flowing away down the drain.
To draw extra energy in at the end of the grounding exercise, take a big breath in and hold on that inhalation as long as you can. Then exhale, holding the exhalation for as long as you can, sink into it.
Repeat this technique several times.

Tapping into emotions, you may also complete the above shower grounding by bringing in a specific emotion. Bring it in into hyper attention, allowing it to wash over you like the water flowing from the top of your head down the body. As soon as you are ready to allow the water to wash the emotion away, let the cleansing water carry it down the body, legs and feet into the earth through the drainpipe. Visualize the energy dropping out of you with each new

You can modify this type of grounding technique for any water source connected directly to the earth, such as rivers, lakes, streams, seas, oceans, ponds, puddles. Swimming or spending time submerged in any of these is an excellent form of grounding.

Technique 8: Stillness Meditation

Stillness meditations are also referred to as stabilization meditations, as they train the mind to remain focused, keeping the body still in a withdrawal of the senses (such as to move from body aches or itches) while consciously focusing attention on a particular object, such as the breath, chant or a point on or in the body.

Training the mind to stay focused and the body to remain still is all about taming the monkey mind to a single point of focus for an extended period. It is about taking complete control of your vehicle and not letting the mind and body drive you. It is a learning of how to fully harness and control the vehicle.


Like breaking a wild horse, we can tame mind and body. Willpower and breath are the main key components of this process. The desired effect is to achieve an equanimous mind, unwavering and unable to be knocked off balance either by positive or negative causation.

Life is full of cause and effect; an example is if you have an itch, and then scratch it. Here, the itch was the cause and scratching the effect. However, if you have an itch and are outside of being reactionary and are actionary, making the decision to not scratch the itch will change the effect.

Learning to sit through such things as itches and muscle pains will show you the true nature of ‘this too shall pass’, the true transient nature of material existence.

Let us dive into a technique. The focal point of which we will remain mindful and use in this exercise is the area of the nostrils, the triangle of the tip of the nose to the lower outside edges of the nostrils.

Breathe normally, as this is not a breathing exercise, and bring yourself into a pose of choice. You can do this practice sitting, kneeling or standing. In any case, good posture is essential. When you find your pose, settle in and set an intention not to react to any disturbance instigating a desire to move. Remain in fortitude.

In the desired pose, bring focus to the nostrils as the breath enters and exits on each inhalation and exhalation. While inhaling and exhaling, allow the breath to be however it comes naturally. Keep focus on the nostrils themselves, not on the journey of the breath.
Focus only on the experience as it passes the triangled area around the nostrils.

Does it feel cool, warm, hot or cold on the skin of the area of the nostrils as the air passes in and out with each breath? Is the air humid or dry? Is the air of the breath going in one nostril or both?

Be assured that especially at first, the mind will want to wander. See that when the mind does wander, you bring it back and stay on track to the feeling of only the breath going in and out of the nostrils or the experience in between breaths when the breath is not present. The faster you can start catching yourself, then bring yourself back, the easier it will progressively become to do so. The opposite is also true.

Therefore, the more you let yourself wander, the more you will tend to do so.

Keep yourself steadfast within your focus of the inhalation and exhalation of breath on the nostrils. Whether they tingle or itch, just let the experience be as it is without wanting to change it. Work to bring your mind’s eye to the place around the nostrils; without opening your eyes, tilt your eyes down toward your nostrils as though you can see through that material aspect of your body to view that area.


Using your eyes in this way assists in keeping the mind occupied on the meditation at hand as well as working an additional aspect of blending mind-body. While working on feeling and seeing the area of the nostrils in detail, so much detail even though you have your eyes closed, you push to see where your focus lies with the mind’s eye (singular eye).

While continuing to focus on the breath passing through the nostrils, keep yourself in that place, resisting all temptation to move.

Do this until you forget all about your body and any discomfort; thus, bringing the mind and body under complete control, eventually in a relaxed and focused state.

This assists in dislodging energetic blocks, as the attachments can detach when you can move past the reactionary state into the actionary state. When you can move past an itch or the desire to move or adjust, to be able to move through any pain or agitation, you may experience just accepting whatever comes, and move through it—as it will pass.

These agitations—such as body aches or an itch—work to incite a reaction when sitting in a stillness meditation. When you move through it in nonreaction, it triggers a function allowing entities to dislodge and start moving through the body so they may exit, if you choose to let go!

In this case, when you go to sleep after this type of stillness meditation, often a memory of an emotional experience that has attached from however long ago will come into your dream. When it does, you will have the option and opportunity to either:

1. Continue to hold on to it, allowing it to reattach.
2. Make peace with it and let it go in the dream, and it will release from the physical and energetic bodies. When you release in this fashion, it is a form of releasing ‘karma’.

Develop a regimented discipline of practice in unflinching fortitude to non-reaction, a witness without judgment, expectation, or need to analyze; this assists in immersion into an experience.

When you work stillness meditations regularly, you start changing the resting state of your brain, stilling the mind to move past reaction to thoughts, desires, emotions and sensations. This carries forward with you throughout the day, over time reprogramming and programming the mind and body, as well as blending the two from doing a practice to becoming the practice, existing in a walking meditation unaffected by outside influences.

The ability to observe without evaluating is the highest form of intelligence.[67]
~ J. Krishnamurti

Technique 9: Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient modality devised to clear clogged energy points within the body to balance the flow of life-force energy, also popularly known as prana, chi, or qi.


We have many organs in the body, the largest of which is the epidermis, the outer layer of the
body or skin. The skin has nerves and other points accessible by applied pressure, referred to as pressure points. When pressure builds or lacks proper energetic flow, it causes disharmony or imbalance within the body, causing agitation, pain, illness, or dis-ease, whether physical, mental, spiritual or all three.

Acupuncture techniques open clogged ports of the energy channels on the physical body by inserting thin metal needles into specific corresponding points through the pores on the skin, stimulating activity in the corresponding energy pathways. Different points correlate to the body’s areas such as the nadis, marmas, main organs, nerves, muscles, connective tissue, tendons, bones, etc. When energy moves in a circular cycle and one of the energy ports becomes clogged, the cycle dwindles or ceases, creating stagnation of energy
within those ports.

Technique 10: Dissolving the Senses – Pratyahara

Pratyahara is the withdrawal of the mind and senses from disturbances generated internally or externally, including emotional attachments such as the defilements and states of ego.

This book is a form of pratyahara. There are many aspects to pratyahara, including dissolving the six primary senses.

Some such practices are rooted in cold exposure, starting as simple as ice baths or cold showers. Monks in the Himalayas take wet towels up a mountainside, drying the towels by sitting in the snow with the towels resting on their naked skin. They manage to use simple
mind power and meditation to heat their bodies, thus drying the soaked and freezing towels.
The ‘Ice Man’ Wim Hof has become popular with his cold exposure practice of teaching mindfulness, breathing techniques, withdrawal/dissolving of the sense of tactility, visualization and absorption/immersion, all leading to accessing control over the higher body functions.

As stated on the Wim Hof website:
‘The Wim Hof Method is essentially about inner power and being able to control your body’s immune system and temperature by doing certain breathing techniques, mixed with physical and cold exercises. The Wim Hof Method has been scientifically proven to influence the Autonomic Nervous System and the innate immune response.’

Native Americans and other tribes around the world also use heat exposure through sweat lodges to withdraw from the tactile sense. Fasting of solid and liquid foods for extended amounts of time is also practiced, referred to as breatharianism, which in the advanced practice consists of even the fasting of air—in Latin, inedia. These are ancient traditions.

Sense withdrawal provides the foundation for the higher practices of yoga, forming the basis for meditation. It works in conjunction with the control of breath and life energy, pranayama (control of prana) by linking prana (breath and life energy) with the mind. The tool is also used to remove anything unwholesome from a person, such as the defilements.

Pratyahara is multifaceted control or withdrawal of the senses, a form of absorption extending into hypersense, to move in or through that sense including breath withdrawal. Mastery over breath is necessary to control the senses and rise above emotions, hence why pranayama is a vital learning before engaging pratyahara practices.

The two blend with a mindfulness meditation to create a full meditation based on concentration and visualization. If you remain singularly focused on an element, at some point, something will emerge. This may happen by directing it inwards in many cases, and in other cases the outside, such as from the sense of optic vision, by bringing vision into a hypersense or accessing spectrums of light not normally seen unless viewed with the singular or third eye.

This allows access and vision to the inner or outer worlds, also known as physical matter planes, whether inside or outside of yourself or beyond.
One example can be achieved with the optic sense by mindfully observing the empty space just in front of yourself as depicted in this illustration by René Descartes.

Here, you are engaging concentration along with visualization of the imaginative process in observation, to localizing consciousness.
Sounds confusing? Simplified, concentrate on the empty air directly in front of you as is depicted in the illustration, using the concentration to visualize what is in the empty space.

I can assure you it is not so empty though it appears that way to your current perception. Eventually, with this very simple openeyed practice you will immerse into it, in effect localizing your consciousness.

This is a complete version of a real meditation, as many of the others are individual pieces ending up combining into this form of blended mindfulness meditation. It should be applied to
every moment, not just in times of meditation.

Meditations, such as dissolving or withdrawal of the senses, create an in-depth topic, so I put multiple other meditations and pratyahara practices together for you in Dissolving the Material World Through Dissolving the Senses of this series.

Pratyahara itself is termed as yoga, as it is the most important limb in yoga sadhana.[69]
~Swami Sivananda

Six supernatural powers the Buddha possessed: Entering into the realm of forms without being deluded by forms, entering into the realm of hearing without being deluded by sounds; of smelling without being deluded by smells; of tastes without being deluded by tastes; of touch without being deluded by touch; and of mental configurations without being deluded by mental configurations. Therefore, the six fields of form, sound, smell, taste, touch and mental configurations are all formless; they cannot bind the man of true independence. Though the Five Skandhas are leaky by nature yet by mastering them, they become your supernatural powers here on earth. [70]
~ Schloegl trans. Rinzai 1975 (pp18-19.)

Many of us find that even after years of meditation practice we have not achieved all that we expected. Trying to practice meditation without some degree of pratyahara is like trying to
gather water in a leaky vessel. No matter how much water we bring in, it flows out again. The senses are like holes in the vessel of the mind. Unless they are sealed the mind cannot hold the nectar of truth. Anyone whose periods of meditation alternate with periods of sensory indulgence is in need of pratyahara.
Pratyahara offers many methods of preparing the mind for meditation.
It also helps us avoid environmental disturbances that are the source of psychological pain. Pratyahara is a marvelous tool for taking control of our lives and opening up to our inner
being. It is no wonder some great yogis have called it ‘the most
important limb of yoga.’ We should all remember to include it
in our practice.[61]
~ Dr. David Frawley (Pandit Vamadeva Shastri)

Technique 11: A Tool to Combat Night Terrors

Do you become sleep paralyzed, feeling a weight on you from night terrors or even from the intuition that something negative is invading your space?
If so, then instead of fighting to move in that terror of a frozen state, remember that fear is the mind-killer, and fear will give it power.


Regain control by refusing to react to fear and participating in the struggle.
Do not struggle! Breathe and relax yourself!

Playing the entities’ game feeds them, but not participating steals their power and regains yours. With deep breaths, start filling yourself with light.


Emanate that light throughout your body until it fills your entire body and starts pouring out of your pores, from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet, and out in all directions. Let that light shine and repeat in your head, “You are not welcome here if you are here to cause mischief or terror. I banish you from this house/temple of Source (You can use whatever higher power or God’s name or Deity that you connect with). Be gone (in its name), through (its power, or your power)”.

Get creative.
Find comfort in the fact that you know you have tools of defense.

Another thing you can add to the light and verbal casting is to emanate emotion of strength. Work to emotionally well love, compassion and gratitude. Feel the powerful energy of those emotions and that of your connection to Source; feel the energy warming your heart and emanating out. Feel the strength radiating far past your physical body, filling the room, and even further if you wish. Feel the lightening of the weight of burden/entity as you let out a deep breath, as whatever was holding you is released.


Move whenever you desire.
Practicing these things during waking hours makes it easier to recall and apply during hours of slumber.

This technique also works to clear spaces. 

Technique 12: Mala beads

A Japamala or mala is designed to bring about a single-pointed focus with a string of prayer beads commonly used in Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, and other traditions for the spiritual practice known in Sanskrit as japa. These are similar to other forms of prayer beads used in various world religions and often referred to in English as a ‘rosary’.

The main body of a Japamala is usually 108 beads, though other numbers are also used. In addition, there is often a 109th bead, often of a distinctive size or color. Sometimes, additional beads may be used for counting rounds. Japamalas are used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity.


These mantras are typically repeated hundreds or even thousands of times. The mala helps you focus on the meaning or sound of the mantra rather than counting its repetitions.

The 109th bead on a mala is the sumeru, bindu, stupa, guru bead, or mother bead. Counting begins with a bead next to the mother bead. If more than one mala of repetitions is intended, the direction changes when reaching the mother bead rather than crossing it.

A space in the bead string allows them to shift one by one, crafted as a tool to achieve a single-pointed focus. A repeated mantra is spoken in the mind or voice and hands, in a single-pointed activity for aligning the mind and body with repeated practice of twenty minutes or more, two or more times daily to achieve the desired effect.

It may take months of practice or more to get to an effortless state of remaining focused, while repeating a mantra so you are able to not be distracted by the counting but instead become or remain immersed in the mantra.

You will still be keeping track through a physical focus, thus instigating a trance state to develop blending and alignment of mind and body; this keeps you from becoming lost or distracted from focus in the trance state of the lower levels of the mind.

Technique 13: Hemi-Sync and Other Audio Techniques

Hemi-sync, developed by Robert Monroe of the Monroe Institute, is a system of audio binaural beats creating what he calls, ‘the Gateway Experience, Hemi-Sync’. The program is designed to sync the two hemispheres of the brain to reach higher perceptual awareness. It has been found through his research that acoustical vibrations in the range of 4-7 Hertz (cycles per second) for protracted periods may achieve the same effect as an individual working meditation involving intense concentration and practice for five years or more, as many meditation practitioners with twenty-plus years of training can consistently establish hemi-sync at will.
The gateway system is a guided meditation system with audio binaural beats to assist in reaching higher states of awareness.
A list of tools and courses goes along with a hemi-sync binaural beats practice in the programs offered by the Monroe Institute.

Technique 14: Primal Roar

When you have a build -up of emotion, a primal roar or scream coming from a state of action rather than reaction, is a good beginner’s way to direct emotional energy. This energy in advanced stages can be used internally, but here we are going to release it.

To start, find somewhere comfortable to let out a primal roar and for courtesy’s sake, where it will not disturb others. Take a moment to really engage the feelings, allowing them to course through you. Take a deep abdominal breath and let out a primal roar or scream that comes from the deep recess of your gut, feeling all that energy release with the roar. Repeat as necessary.

Learning breathwork assists with enhancing this technique.

Technique 15: Movement

Practices such as Qi Gong, Thai Chi, Chi Gung, Bagua, Yoga, Tantra as well as many other available energy practices work to blend the mind and body. Through breath and physical motion practices, you may become more aware of the subtleties, such as the moving energy throughout and around the body. From that point, you will move into learning how to use those energies or in the advanced stage, to witness without analysis into absorption (immersion) into the practice. With diligence, these types of practices teach how to
align the mind and body into one.

Flexibility of the body is as important as flexibility of the mind, making tendon lengthening, strengthening, and spinal flexion a vital practice for vitality as well as flexibility of the mind. A purposeful constriction and separate contraction of the tendons for several minutes at a time strengthens the tendons, as well as giving rise to a release of tightened tendons and ligaments.

This demonstrates a gentler ride to flexibility in using polarities to work together, rather than fighting one direction with a constriction in another. A balance in the constriction and contraction in opposite directions leads to a responsive neutral that you can train then strengthen in the flexible state.


Working the tendons leads to finding disharmonies within the physical body, in turn leading to disharmonies of the spiritual, releasing them to have harmony from a release of tensions in the tendons; these are the main musical chords of the physical body. I will be diving deeper into this topic in later books of this series.

You can achieve flow or an aligned mind-body state in a single-pointed focus, often in the form of drawing, painting, calligraphy, playing a musical instrument, dancing, archery, poi, rope dart, knife throwing, ax throwing, Qi Gong, Thai Chi, Chi Gung, Bagua, Yoga, etc. You can achieve a mind-body flow connection with almost any hobby or art form.

Engage in four-stage breathing while practicing a preferred art with pinpoint focus. Align that focus with the four-stage breathing practices such as pranayama.

When you can use pinpoint mindful focus with the art and engage in conscious effortless breathing, you can enter a trance to unlock new levels of awareness. This is the state of flow or absorption. 

Technique 16: Virtue

In working the virtues, you are working the defilements.
In a threefold approach:
1. Do not submit to desires, then the lies will cease and the delusion will be broken.
2. Rid yourself of lies and start living in truth with yourself and with everyone and everything around you, then the delusions start diminishing, and desires start fading away.
3. Meditate on delusions, then the lies and desires start to fall away, as with this threefold approach:
1. When I meditate, I study then contemplate.
2. When I study, I meditate then contemplate.
3. When I contemplate, I study then meditate.


Here are a few virtues to start with.


Learning to live in truth will dissolve the lies told to others and yourself, leaving you with the foundation of truth to be your support. Here is a story exemplifying foundational truth.

There were two men, and each needed to build a house. The first man was foolish, and chose to build on sandy soil where it was easy to access and easy to dig the foundations. In a few short weeks, he was almost finished. The second man was wise, and chose to build his house on a rocky hill, where it was very hard to access and to dig the foundation. He spent many months building his house. As time passed, a huge storm broke upon the houses of these men. After much rain, a flood swept through the valley and the man’s house that was built on the sand was swept away. But the second man who had built on the rocky hill was safe. No matter how hard it rained or how fierce the floods were his house remained solid and immovable. [72]
~ Jesus, Matthew 7:24-27

Truth is a foundation. If you use the stones of truth to build on, then you will have a stable foundation. A foundation built on lies will eventually crumble.

Truth is a way of transmuting ‘karma’, the cause and effect of your actions through developing mindfulness via intention and awareness of thoughts, words and actions. Living in truth with others as well as yourself will allow you to be observant of your thoughts, words, actions and recurring patterns, thereby bringing awareness to being the witness of the mind. Then, bring intent into action to execute each thought (self-talk), word, or action in the virtue of truth.

Many people have become compulsive liars, and even lie to themselves habitually. Many have become far removed from truth. Work the practice of living in truth with yourself and others, and you will see how often you live in truth as well as how much effort it will take
to reprogram that particular self-defiling behavior.

This reprogramming is a refinement process of your behavior patterns.
Becoming the witness allows you to move from the reactionary states to a state of intention to become actionary with resolve, in effect dissolving negative patterns through the use of willpower. This also leads you to start the journey of self-love, a key to loving yourself
as well as others.

Without truth there is no respect, whereas with truth you may develop self-respect and a respect for others. The more we dig into truth, the more we dig into learning about ourselves. In doing so, the more we will see that a lot of what keeps us in our mind (the mental plane) disconnects us from what is transpiring all around us, thereby creating a separation from the Source.

We are working to dissolve separation to see the singular union of the totality; a me, me, me, thought process invoked by the 108 aspects of ego, co-inspired in its false belief structure, is a state of separateness from the whole. As ‘individuals’, we constantly bring ourselves out in the moment shared with those around us, closed off into ourselves.

Through self-reflection, you will see how your thoughts, words and actions—in how they are in action or inaction from an unaware state—can affect those around you and could easily be misinterpreted.

This understanding may help you from getting lost in the mind with a question, ‘Why did this happen?’ Instead replace it with questions such as, ‘What am I going to do? What am I going to say? What actions am I going to move forward with in intent-filled motion of truth?’
Do this to be of service to all life.

If you seek to be honest with yourself and are working on seeing all as one and no separation, then everyone is you. To be in truth with others, first be in truth with your self. Until you develop truth of self, you will never be able to be truthful with others. Once you learn to see through and dissolve the lies you have told yourself while being steadfast in virtue of truth, new doorways will open, while others built on the lies and untruths close.

This truth leads to fewer things that end up dividing you and others, as there are no untruths to keep track of, thus keeping you at a higher level of energy in all relating exchanges.
However, truth can divide on its own accord, as many people are offended when inadequacies are pointed out to them; hence, practicing virtues such as humility, compassion, understanding, non-judgment and acceptance is necessary. We all have our own stuff to work on.


When you start being truthful after a life of deceit, it may flip your life upside down as it did to me because the truth will not be easy to face and share. Rebuild the foundation from truth rather than attempt to rebuild on an eroded foundation of lies and deceit.

Two keys are charity and truth, both attached energetically to chakras. Truth is connected to the throat chakra, directly affecting the chakras on either side of it, those being the heart chakra (Charity) and the third-eye chakra ‘Singular Eye’ (Sight).

If you are unable to learn how to accept hidden truths of self, then you could not be of an equanimous mind in accepting the thoughts or actions of others. This could cause you to reject them for unpleasurable emotional triggers! Many do not see this, for they do not have an unbiased eye, this mentality creating blocks from seeing the truths all around.

We must seek truth, self-reflection, and charity, to learn ‘all is all’ and that there is no separation, that by doing to others you are doing to yourself, as the whole is a singularity.
This is a fantastic place to begin self-reflection on the mental as well as physical planes, for here is where we may unveil lies and untruths we even hide and tell ourselves. It is in this where you really get to know yourself.


I live in this perception, so I use the term ‘one’
in referring to you, me, us, every-one! The Mayans used the term ‘In Lak’ech Ala K’in’ which in a modern-day interpretation is I am another yourself.
It also means I am you, and you are me.

Several indigenous North American tribes use ‘Mitakuye Oyasin’ which translates to we are all related or we are all one, also accompanied with ‘Aho’ which in Cherokee translates to the same as amen, or Aum.

Now is a perfect time and place to start figuring out who it is that you want to be, as we are always creating ourselves in each moment through every one of our actions. You may be living reactionarily through life. You get to choose either the light or the dark, love or fear. You do not have to say this is me, and I’m stuck with it. You do not have to make excuses for yourself in telling others, this is just who I am and I can’t change.
At any stage of physical life, you can undergo a character change.
You can even have several throughout a lifespan.

Many people wear many masks. We are working on removing the masks and developing character, to learn to dissolve the idea of self.
To develop your character, you need to be observant of it. This is what allows you to see the deeper depths of yourself as well as distinguish the 108 aspects of ego. Self-reflection and witnessing of yourself set the stage for the refinement of self. 

People often lie for multiple reasons, but most often due to fear or in an avoidance of being uncomfortable. This is an area that must be dissolved. In doing so, we are learning to just be. You will be unable to just be while residing outside of truth, whether within yourself or to others.

Deception has become so acceptable in today’s morally corrupt society that lies are expected. Each of us, one by one, can change that. Think about it like, ‘This little light of mine, I am going to let you shine!’ Your soul is light as you are currently hue-man. Every time you are not in truth with your words and actions, you are hiding an aspect of yourself, dimming your light.

Be careful of who or what you pretend to be since you may just become it!
Imitation is a means to reprograming oneself in the image desired, and this goes both ways. Removing barriers to live in truth with oneself and others sets the stage for freedom, as you are living a life of truth, unashamed, unapologetic, and equanimous to the experience.
The truth shall set you free, and for those who live in truth, know thyself. Those who know thyself, know God.


To be selflessly in the service of others with the sole intention of enriching life for all is the key to developing a magnetic marker that attracts abundance. Charity dissolves emotional frames of selfishness over time. The best way to help yourself is to help others, though if done from a position of selfishness, it will have the opposite magnetic effect.

For example, if you make a large charitable donation because you know your name will be put up in lights and you will receive VIP treatment, that will not be truly charitable. Your ego is the motivator.

On the other hand, if you make the donation and ask to remain anonymous—or you transfer funds to the organization anonymously with no prior discussion—then you are showing your sincere motives in giving.

The preprogramming of your magnetic marker and dissolving emotional attachments may be removed by refraining from thinking, ‘What can I get out of people?’, ‘How can I use them!’ and reframing to, ‘How can I be of service?’ Charity should be accomplished with no thought or expectation of a return of any sort, just carried out under the motivation of goodwill or from the point of doing it for the betterment of all.

During this process, regularly examine that you remain in the proper alignment for the action to be true, in that you are in a charitable state of being. Charity with a selfish means to seek material or personal gain is not charity and becomes a defilement.

Realizing that we are all connected and then working to grow the connection allows you to unveil the art of becoming selfless, and in selflessness, dissolving the separation. Charity is a key to unveiling the interconnectedness by removing ego to see all as self, eventually
becoming selfless in a state with no separation from the greater whole.

The most precious gift we can offer anyone is our attention. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.[73]
~ Thich Nhat Han


Make a Difference

Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walkingon the beach before he began his work. One day, he was walking along the shore. As he looked down the beach, he saw a human figure moving like a dancer.
He smiled to himself to think of someone who would dance to the day. So he began to walk faster to catch up. As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man and the young man wasn’t dancing, but instead he was reaching down to the shore, picking up something and very gently throwing it into the ocean. As he got closer, he called out, “Good morning! What are you doing?” The young man paused, looked up and replied, “Throwing starfish in the ocean.”
“I guess I should have asked, why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?”
“The sun is up and the tide is going out. And if I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.” “But, young man, don’t you realize that there are miles and miles of beach and starfish all along it. You can’t possibly make a difference!” The young man listened politely.
Then he bent down, picked another starfish and threw it into the sea, past the breaking waves and said, “It made a difference for that one.”[74]

Gratitude is the state of being thankful, an appreciation of someone or something. Gratitude is a powerful energy to harness, a great tool to enhance abundance in your life by attracting it to your electromagnetic state. Change your thought process from what you believe is lacking to what you are grateful for, expressing gratitude for the abundance of what you appreciate in life.

If you desire more, rather than focusing on what you wish for or feel you may be lacking, give gratitude for what you have. Focusing on appreciation and gratitude will prime the emotional magnetic state of being to the abundant state of appreciation, rather than the magnetic emotional state of wanting or longing—a state of lacking.

You get what you emotionally magnetically attract.

This emotional thought process to influence your emotional electromagnetic marker is the main missing element from the book ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne. The knowledge that your emotional electromagnetic marker is the key to manifesting what you sincerely desire has been a secret of manifestation kept closely coveted by many in the know.

It takes time to go from a low resonating electromagnetic marker to a high-level magnetic marker. It is how we truly feel inside that reflects outwards, so an emotional facade will be seen right through by the Verse. To flip your magnetic marker, redirect your mind and
body into thinking and feeling positive and abundant, rather than allowing negative and ‘lacking’ thoughts. Optimism or pessimism makes a difference, as your body reacts electromagnetically to the mind’s emotional state.

The Source returns to you as a magnetic being from your thoughts and emotional state. The electromagnetic state of being, along with released thought, acts as the driving force of what we magnetically attract. To change what you attract, start exercising appreciation and
gratitude and feel it (emotional welling). Feigning it will not have the beneficial effect; you have to invest the feeling.


The other factor is releasing in your mind that which you wish to attract; if you hold the thought hostage, it will not be sent out for you to receive. It is not a difficult concept since by and large, the same applies in human romantic relationships. If you give someone the freedom to be with you or not, they are more likely to become attracted. Conversely, how many of us are attracted toward an over-ardent stalker? Trying too hard to grasp that which we desire most often has the effect of driving it away.

Welling feelings such as appreciation, gratitude and joy can be used as tools to overpower the negative feelings such as lacking, sorrow, helplessness or frustration.
We each get a choice to well in an emotion, wallow in it or move through it. Resolve, the drive to break old patterns, is vital in the desire to reprogram.
It needs to become habitual to break old habits.

Live your life so that the fear of death can never enter your heart. When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light. Give thanks for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. And if perchance you see no reason for giving thanks, rest assured the fault is in yourself. [75]
~ Chief Tecumseh, Shawnee Indian Chief


Technique 17: Chanting

We chant either verbally or internally through mental repetition of a sound, word or phrase (s), often known as a mantra or sutra. This can be extremely helpful as chanting is a stabilization meditation technique that helps unclutter the mind, to easily allow it to unwind from the constant bombardment of thought, emotions and sensations.


Chanting is not about staying focused as some mistakenly believe. It is about remaining present with the sound, allowing you to dive into the deeper recesses of the mind layer by layer, as you sink deeper and deeper with the goal of eventually becoming immersed in a state of absorption.

When chanting aloud, certain mantras share a resonance correlating to an area in the body, as well as creation. There are many mantras and chants, with a multitude of things to offer and teach. A seed mantra is a good one to start with, consisting of a single-syllable sound or word. Seed mantras contain an entire essence of a teaching, like a gift to be unwrapped through remaining present to the sound and or vibration.

Seed Mantras for the Seven Primary Chakras:

AUM is the basic root sound in existence. Aaa, ooo, and mmm are the three basic sounds, that move through everything. There is a whole form of yoga directly geared toward the mantra AUM, dedicated to expressing it properly; this form is named Aumkar yoga.

The AUM mantra starts below the navel and ends at the tip of the nose. It is important to move your awareness around with the reverberation of the sound as you make it, starting from the navel and coming all the way to the nose tip, then circulating out and back
down to the belly, creating an oval. Three sounds make up AUM, which are aaa, ooo, and mmm, each one able to be used as a mantra.
When doing a proper AUM, it is important to make the aaa, ooo and mmm equal in length, as it should be evenly balanced.

AUM practice lesson:

Start with seven aaa, then seven ooo, then seven mmm. Then twenty-one times, put them all together for AUM. Pay close attention to the reverberations while moving your awareness with them as you utter the sounds aaa, ooo, and mmm. Notice that uttering the sound aaa reverberates, starting from the navel area. When you utter ooo, the reverberations start center chest, and mmm reverberates from the throat and moves up to the tip of the nose.

There’s a significance to the number of times one utters AUM, the notable counts being: 21, 33, 42, 54, 64, 68, 72, 84, 95, 108. Ang may connect to the end of any of the seed mantras finishing with an ‘M’ to bring the reverberation higher into the head. As you will find when practicing carrying the M in a verbal chant, it reverberates from the lower part of the head, the throat, to the tip of the nose.


If you go from humming mmm and add ‘ang’—as in mmmnnnggg—the back of the tongue lightly presses to the upper back palate of the mouth, bringing the mmmnnnggg reverberations into the upper head.


It is helpful to hear the sounds pronounced properly to be able to access proper vibrations in your own chanting practice. To assist in grasping where and how to get the back of the tongue to press against the back upper part of the roof of the mouth when chanting with Ang, simply swallow; at the end of the swallow, the tongue will naturally press into the correct placement.

A seed mantra can be part of a longer chant or chanted by itself.
A few other commonly used mantras: Ah, Aim/Ayeim, Shrim, Klim, Glaum, Hrim, Gam, Krim, Ka, Ra, Sh, Ab, Ren, Ting, Ding Dahung, and Chokmah (pronounced HOK-mah with the H pronounced like -ch in the name Bach) to name a few.

In ancient times, the seven vowels of Nature I E O U A M S resounded within the human organism.[76]
~ Samael Aun Weor

Mantra Pronunciation

Chanting or repetition of sacred sound is universal in all religions. In Sanskrit, these sounds are called mantras, and their repetition is called japa. Generally speaking, the sounds in the mantras are pronounced using the ancient roots
(Latin, Sanskrit, etc): I: as the ee in “tree” E: as the eh in “they” O: as in the oh in “holy” U: as in u in “true” A: as the ah in “father” M: extended as if humming, “mmmmm” S: extended like a hiss, “sssss” CH: if the word is Latin, pronounced ask. If the word is Hebrew, pronounced as a scrape in the back or the throat, as in “Bach” G: in most mantras, G is pronounced as in “give” J: if the word is Sanskrit, pronounced as in “joy.”[77]
~ Samael Aun Weor

‘I E O U A M S’, put together in whole, is the infamos or AUM (AH) in its proper pronunciation and is the resonate vibration permeating and humming throughout all living things.

The English word Amen shares its root with the Sanskrit Aum, and is common in many languages. In written language, it is rooted in Afroasiatic, comprising 300 or so different African languages in cluding Arabic, old Aramaic and Ancient Egyptian. From Judaism, it was then adopted by the Greek into Latin, then into Western languages such as English where it then lost its root.

Often, in these times, amen would be pronounced ah-men, aymen or ah-meen. The ay-men pronunciation is from the great vowel shift/switch of 1500’s, in which the shift in vowel usage was purposefully crafted by dark druid priests seeking control over the lower realms of the Dark Kingdoms, to detach common words of connection from the physical to the spiritual bodies; these words—in proper pronunciation—as well as their full originating context, carry vibrational frequencies that activate spiritual centers of the energetic system, as well as cleansing the physical body through higher vibrational frequencies.

This is the case being words of connection—to the current use in disconnection, except via intention—as words are magick and English words are devised for users to cast negative magick upon self and each other as well as to disconnect from the sacred sounds.

In old Egyptian, Amen-Ra begins with Yohd, as in Yohd Amen- Ra. Yodh also spelled yud, yod, jod, or jodh, which in Hebrew translates to iodine, but when two Yuds are in a row, it designates the name of God. It is used in all languages except English, its sound value being that of [ i ] which serves as a long vowel, pronounced ee as in the English word meet.

Current translation means ‘so be it’ or ‘truth’. Or together, ‘truth so be it’, though its root from Ancient Egyptian Ahmen-Ra (Ammon, Ammun, Amun-Ra or Amun-Re), comes from the first letter in their alphabet as the alpha, also the Sun or Light God, which is said the Ancient Egyptians saw and worshiped as the supreme being!

Ahmun Ra, when chanted properly, vibrates from the root chakra and follows in an upward pattern through the center column to the crown chakra, then out the top of the head. Then with the ‘Ra’, it wraps that energy from the crown of the head ankhs (arches) outside the body and down, channeling the energy to the solar plexus chakra in the front and back of the body. Hence the infamous Egyptian symbol of the ankh, the symbol for life itself as representation of its power to sustain life and revive human souls.

This spoken mantra provides blessings for those who speak it, as well as to those who hear it spoken properly, due to the vibrational frequencies of the sounds.
This chant, like many other chants, uses a glottal plosive or stop, a type of consonantal sound produced by obstructing airflow in the vocal tract, more precisely the glottis, where the glottal vibration either stops or is irregular with a low rate and sudden drop in intensity.

Said something like this:

These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God .[78]
~ Revelation 3:14

The word for ‘spirit’ in Hebrew and Greek has a three-fold meaning: spirit, wind, and breath. With that information, I am going to now share and break down another of the highest mantras I know. (That is after the spiritual centers are aligned, often through amen-ra mantra, and activated). The mantra is the name of God’s first creation, followed by GOD the source’s name but to get to its true essence, it is helpful to learn the double- and single-syllable mantras as well as that of amen-ra mantra, to learn those lessons and align yourself, to learn and understand the deeper wisdoms of it.

Silence in non-breath is GOD or the Source of creation’s name, as it has no beginning, and no end. The syllable-less sound YHWH is the first sound spoken in creation, which is to us a god unto itself, for this is still an aspect of creation we stem from even though it is not the root of creation, but the first stage.

This is God’s name, the first thing that came into existence, what the Pythagoreans and Gnostics referred to as Monad the Divinity or the first being that bore the totality of beings within this system—that from which everything else in here arose, the 0 or O Guru from
which we emanate and to which we return. It is an unspeakable name but may be engaged on the ‘in’ or ‘out’ ‘holds’ of the breath, in the silence and stillness of non-breath.

If stillness, emptiness, or even void is 0, then the next layer would be one on the scale in either direction of the action of inhalation or exhalation. YHWH is the first layer away from the Supreme Source, for it is the first phase and cycles that step out of complete stillness
and emptiness. And it is in stillness in non-breath in which we return.

It is emptiness when we let all the air out on an out-breath and hold it as we have emptied the breath in that action for that ‘out’ hold.

When you can reach 108 breaths in one day, each breath becomes a mantra, and that mantra is God’s first creation followed by GOD the source of creation’s true name. If you can repeat this 108 times in a row, you will be granted access to the Heavens.

Each time the Source’s first creation (YHWH) followed by the Source name (silence,
emptiness and stillness) is expressed and non-expressed, it cleanses an aspect of ego with 108, to obtain liberation. If you don’t understand what the mantra is by that explanation, breathe in very slowly, holding the inhale, then let out that breath starting from the lower abdomen while slightly constricting your throat slowly and extended at a whisper. That sound the breath made, that is the beginning of God’s first creation’s name (YHWH).

This name is the originating vibrational sound, the source vibration underlining everything.
God’s first creation’s name can only be spoken properly at a whisper, and to say the whole name is long in the average breath perspective as there are 1,440 minutes in a day. Dividing that by 108, we come to one full breath cycle in a 13.33-minute time frame. If you divide that by four, for the in, hold, out, hold, it comes to 3.33 minutes for each of the four stages of one full breath cycle if you were to equally divide the time between the four. (Though this can be done by extending the ‘out’ breath and the hold on the ‘out’ breath longer than the ‘in’ breath and ‘in’ breath hold.)

Think about it. God is the breath of life. God from silence spoke existence into being. To me, it makes sense that God’s name is the state of non-breath held in stillness. As you have seen in this book, I have shared the true names of the 108 as they too are named by their vibration, as not all names are words as we typically have learned to know them.

If you look at the foundation of YHWH, the root is the breath; just breathe in and out slowly, and you will see that is the sound made. No effort is required to say the name; it just is, just comes into being with a breath. The breath at the second-lowest resonance is AUM.


Once this is investigated, you will find that the normal breath is formless in the manner that it has no syllables. Every mantra word or sound outside of this carries syllables. When we move from the simple breath to AUM, you will find the AUM as a syllable, also one of the softer syllables.

Some mantras have more syllables. You are working from the larger syllabled—sometimes two-syllable or single-syllable words or sounds—down to the primordial sound with no syllables. If you take YHWH and split it into YH on the out breath and WH on the ‘in’ breath effortlessly—without trying to pronounce the YH or WH with the slightest constriction in the sacral area of the abdomen, following the breath up into the throat with a glottal plosive or stop—it will come out as the primordial sound of the breath out, and the breath in.
If chanting verbally, feel the sensations caused by the movements of the breath in the body as is practiced in return, incorporating a mindfulness meditation.

Breath has power, especially when you learn to harness it. Chanting will help with breath extension when a mantra is carried for long periods in practice. This will assist you in coming to understand the basic process of getting the mind ready to enter a proper meditation, as chanting may be used as a tool to tame and train the mind to withdraw from the emotional and sensational bonds, as well as align the spiritual energetic centers. Here, you can see the levels of the mind that you may dive through in chanting:

Stacked circles large circles at top with progressively smaller circles under

Think of the stacked circles as layers of the mind. Think of the larger circle on top as where your mind is in your daily life, with the waves of roaming thoughts from the mind triggering responses from the emotional and sensational thoughts/triggers to which many attach.

As you dive deeper into the mind layer by layer, this allows you to get out of the turbulent upper layers into the deeper, calmer layers.

Think of the mind like an ocean or sea, turbulent at the surface, calm and still at the deeper depths.

In this, you are viewing from the watcher’s perspective, such as I am not this body, nor am I this mind but I can witness them! And then witness from that state while being affectionately unattached to the body, thoughts, or emotions as they come and go, like breezes.
Wind cannot be held onto, only experienced.


Do not stay with the thoughts of the monkey mind as they come in; just let them come and go like the wind, staying present with the chant which will allow you to dive deeper into the proverbial still waters. If you find you have wandered off into an empty space in the mind and that you stopped chanting, often that is a deeper level of the mind you have reached.

Continue the chant, staying present with it to keep diving deeper through the levels.

Water will seek its own level.
It is the nature of water to do so.
Unrestricted by the opinions of rocks in the stream,
it goes where it will and is patient to do so. [79]
~ Lao Tzu


Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.[80]
~ Bruce Lee

Here is an additional technique that may be helpful if you have trouble chanting one of the above mantras or getting a child/teen to chant (which helps with focus and concentration).
If you or your child is disturbed by a mind clouded by thoughts or emotion, pick any word or set of words to chant.

This does not need to be any of the above mantras, just one or two words to hold focus on; for instance, my granddaughter can be stubborn in her willingness to chant to clear the mind or sometimes even to remain focused, but when presented with something she is interested in, such as the band name ‘One Direction’, which she is infatuated with, she is willing to chant that for extended periods.

She even applies mental imagery of traveling one direction with her eyes closed. She uses this now to clear the mind for studying and reading, releasing emotional outbursts, etc. The chant, along with a corresponding mental image, helps clear the mind of distractions as well as training the mind in a twofold approach of the verbal chant and mental imagery, which strengthens metal focus as well as imagination.

This means working a combination technique, preparing you or the child for the practice of a full meditation.

Technique 18: Tree Meditation

The first book in this series The Universal Playing Field gives a basic understanding of what you are a part of and how it is all connected.
If you have not read that, I suggest you do as it will assist in this meditation by opening some perceptions that are helpful. I believe this technique of tree meditation will assist you with building deliberate connection. Once perceived and understood, it will allow for continuously new perceptions to open from the basis of the unification of everything which resides in a duality and everything that is; everything is a form of life, and every form of life is part of a singular ‘thing’.
In other words, all is all is all… This being the case, we can connect to all aspects of this singularity because we are already connected.
You just need to tune out to tune in, tune out to the individual I, and tune in to the larger whole!

There are a lot of frequencies out there! Each human being has their own unique frequency just as each has their own unique fingerprint and DNA markers. Imagine that you can tune into every single human frequency and see through each pair of human eyes.

Now, let us continue that thought and add all the eyes of all living beings, animals, etc. whether on land, sea, or air from subatomic particles to planets and universes. All the eyes, I’s, coming together, each a frequency of their own, all making up the whole song. In this, we are with full intent connecting to the whole song, tuning in. 

This tree meditation is a form of standing meditation, though it may be done sitting. It is beneficial to ground to the earth with bare feet, standing with proper posture. We will be using two types of breathing in this tree meditation, starting with the two-stage baby’s breath then moving to a four-stage breathing. We are a conduit, a string in the woven fabric of the Verse micro to macro and beyond. When connecting, we connect seven directions just as a tree branching down, up, front, back, left, right, and in.

Tree Meditation

Let us begin by using the baby’s breath that we went over earlier in technique five. Bringing the breath in from your nose, allow the breath to fill the lower diaphragm, breathing slowly and deeply, with the inhale and exhale approximately the same length, slowing down and controlling your breath. As you let the breath out, let it out from the mouth, slightly constricting the throat (glottal plosive), allowing the breath to make a tangible sound as the breath escapes.

Bring your attention to the experience of the breath escaping. Take your time as you repeat that breath a few times.
Then tilt the head slightly back, and with a slight pull back of the chin toward the spine, feel the warmth and energy from all around you connect, embracing this as the anointing of Source and existence all around and in you. Bathe in the glory of Source, reveling as it washes over you in all its grandeur.

Shrug and roll your shoulders, relaxing all the major muscles. With each new exhale, feel any tensions you may have drop further and further down into the body. Now, lift your arms outward away from your body, to open energy flow in the area of your armpits, with arms and hands extended out slightly, palms up in acknowledgment of receipt and exchange in being a conduit, a link in the source of creation, extending from the macro and micro of both the internal and external.

Take a few long deep even breaths with attention on the hands that are extended palms up, bringing awareness to the energies coursing through the forearms to the palms of your hands. Witness the energy build as your awareness grows in those areas, feeling more and more energy coursing through and building in those areas with each new breath as it moves up and down the arms into the shoulders and head.

As this energy fills your head, feel the pressure of the flow of energies pouring in and out of the very top of the head. Visualize the energy and a vibrant gold light filling the rest of your being, from the physical and etheric toes all the way up the body, relaxing into the breath inhale. Inhale, hold, exhale, exhale hold. Hold each breath stage as long as comfortable; breath should float rather than press.

Continue with the four-stage breathing as long as needed to fill the vessel with the energy and vibrant gold light. Once the energies and light have filled the vessel and are pouring forth, from good posture on a chosen exhalation, allow the chin to drop into the
upper chest in a head bow of respect, gratitude, and connection to Mother Earth.

The chin and breath move together on the exhalation, exhaling all the air for at least a five-count. Done properly, you should feel a slight vacuumed pressure from the mid-abdomen. Hands, like filled chalices, turn over, fingertips reaching toward the earth. Hold the
exhalation as long as comfortable. Forget that the breath is being held, simply being with the experience.

When ready to inhale, continuing with the four-stage breathing, bring to mind and drop to the earth all the stresses, emotional lows and highs, the positive as well as negative experiences, things you are holding onto and that which no longer serves you.

As you feel all that energy dumping from the head down into the torso, arms and legs into the feet and into the earth, envision your torso and legs as a nice strong and sturdy tree trunk, with the physical and etheric feet stretching out, the heels and toes growing roots, digging their way into the earth. With each in and out-breath, the roots of your feet grow farther and farther into the earth, connecting to everything they touch. 

Now, the fingers, like branches of a tree, start stretching out and growing, reaching down to the earth and up to the sky, reaching for the Heavens while other branches reach to the earth, rooting in. Visualize your etheric roots digging in as they stretch out deeper into the soil, reaching farther across the plane(t).

Envision those roots going deeper through dirt rocks and gravel, into and through underground rivers and aquifers as you root deeper, reaching to the center of the earth and beyond, with your roots spreading out across and wrapping around and through the earth, like the nerves spread across the body. Feel your root system connecting to all the elementals: air, crystals, metals, fire, connecting all over the earth, to the plants, animals, trees, insects, fungi, roots and water, all the systems connecting you to everything and everyone on the planet.

Continue the long in-and-out four-stage breathing, allowing yourself to tune in and feel the energy from the top of your head, then feel as it drops down through the neck, shoulders, and torso, and into the arms, hands, into the rooted fingers. Feel the energy coming down the legs and out of the bottom of the rooted feet, toes, and heels, visualizing the warmth draining down like warm water pouring from the top of your head, down the body, coating the mind and body(ies), physical and spiritual.

Take a long exhale, feeling the warmth coating you, passing through you into your heels, to the roots of your feet. With the breath, continue to feel whatever is left of all that which does not serve you, letting it drain away through your roots into the earth.

This intensive connection brings attention to the roots and absorbs the vital nutrients the mother has to offer. The earth drawing negative ions from you, and you drawing positive ions in a symbiotic exchange, is like roots of a tree drawing the vital water from the earth and nourishing and strengthening the trunk up into the branches and leaves. You can add in visualizing the roots drawing in cool water, while also urinating/excreting out the warm going in and out of the lower root system. 

Continuing the four-stage breath work, feeling your upper body growing etheric branches reaching out in all directions from the front, back, and sides of your trunk, making it start to be difficult to distinguish your etheric branches from your physical limbs.

The hairs on your head will have a life of their own as they grow into branches, your etheric tubes reaching up for the sky, the branches filling out with leaves shimmering with the golden light emanating from your being from a micro (hue-man aspect) meeting with the macro light of the sun from the physical solar system. See the two aspects of light coming together, feeding each other as one, in connection with the leaves of your tree symbiotically absorbing the nutrients of the sun’s white and violet light as it absorbs into you. Then those combined lights illuminating out, connecting to the main star (sun) in the center of your universe, like a nerve connecting to the whole.

Be with this in your imaginative process as you go through a full four-stage breath. Inhale, bringing attention to the experience of the breath coming into your nose, with the breath dropping all the way down the body into the heels, then rising from the heels into the lower abdomen, expanding and contracting in the seven directions, into the mid and upper lungs. (Like a vessel filling with water, in then expanding out all directions, filling). Hold the inhale, the hold hovering, floating with no pressure. Feel the life-giving oxygen entering the lungs and traveling to the veins and arteries distributed all throughout the physical body. Hold this
breath for as long as comfortable.

Exhale, allowing the breath to fall out of the mouth or nose, bringing the exhalation down the legs into the heels, pressing the last of the air out of the lower abdomen in a seven-directional expulsion of the air where it creates a vacuum feeling. (This should not feel or
be strenuous).

Hold the exhale, staying with the hold as long as comfortable.
Though a goal is to get lost in the exhale hold, learn to move past the reaction of the need to breathe in distracting the mind through focus on awareness.

Visualize your etheric umbilical cords reaching farther to the Heavens, traveling beyond the planets in the solar system, and out of the galaxy. Then extending outside of this universe, to the sea of the multiverse, where you can see the GOD pattern, the Tree of Life with a sea of universes before you.


Be with the knowing that it all is spanning macro to micro, connecting every aspect of Source. They span the inner, middle and outer worlds and beyond, like the woven threads they are, within a vacuum of void, resting upon emptiness of the blank canvas; the light and sound all are harmonizing into one primordial sound and emanating light Source, networking together.
With this connection to all, bring attention back to witnessing your etheric umbilical cords exchanging the vital energies from the earth.


Here, you act as a conduit of that which is pouring in, out and up to the seas of the multiverses, the Heavens, the codes of life, (DNA) from micro to macro and all-dimensional kingdoms in between, all forming the singular eye, Source. Be with this, continuing with the inhale, inhale hold, exhale, exhale hold.

Source, ‘the universe’ gives us lessons throughout our life. These can take many forms such as the obstacles of the states of ego, absorption into emotional states, mental labyrinths, the many gifts, and lessons.


Acknowledge that, giving gratitude for the lessons and experiences in all their stages, in being able to be a conduit, and in so allowing freedom of passage to flow of all the energies in, out to Mother and Father Source and connecting this to the breath.

Inhale, dropping the breath all the way down the body into the heels, then rising from the heels up into the lower abdomen, then expanding and contracting into the mid and upper lungs.

Hold the inhale, with the hold hovering and floating with no pressure. Hold this breath for as long as comfortable.

Exhale, the exhalation pressing the last of the air out of the lower abdomen in a seven-directional expulsion of the air where it creates a vacuum feeling.

Hold the exhale, be with the hold for as long as comfortable, working to extend this exhale hold.

And repeat, inhale, hold, exhale, hold; on an out hold, find a stillness in the mind to let go of body and thought, and just be with a chosen focus of the mind’s eye of that which you seek, holding it unwaveringly steady in the mind’s eye, leaving anything outside of visualization and imagination to be suspended. Continue four-stage breathing. Remain with this for as long as you choose.

Bring yourself to this connected awareness state throughout the day as you may use this as a walking meditation. With repeated practice, harness this perception and experience without analysis of thought, just witnessing in mindful awareness.
You can enact this meditation in seconds or keep it going nonstop as we are truly always connected even though many appear so disconnected.
It is the level of our awareness that determines to what expanse that we perceive to be connected, as where attention goes energy flows and grows, so too grows our connection to those areas.
If you feel disconnected, you are aware of the disconnection. Bring yourself into the mind of being connected to reconnect.
So, when this information sinks in, it becomes less thought and more feeling and experiencing (being). Wrapping your mind around the totality of the Verse to connect to all of it is ever-unfolding, though the more you do it, the less your mind will go about how you are connecting and walking the steps in your mind of the given meditation. It will move to being in the experience of purposeful intention of connection and being in the moment with it, to experience it as it is, rather than how you wish it to be.

What I mean by how you wish it to be is, in one case, we can move energy around the body’s energy system and influence and affect its natural flow by intention. In certain stages, you are just a witness to the experience, observing the senses and moving past them into the
waves and currents and frequencies, seeing the way they flow with out interference.


The other stage is to intentionally direct energy in our expression of how we connect.
I have set a platform for you to build from, not to plateau at, as this perceptual awareness is only a starting point. Move with the energies and let intuition guide you, remembering intuition comes from feeling, not thinking.


When we are working on purposeful connection in the form of a tree meditation, we are connecting at multiple dimensions. We are a conduit connecting to all aspects of the singularity of which we are a part. What the singularity is in its grandeur is unveiled more and more with meditation, study, and contemplation. In short, what we are connecting to is only limited to what you are consciously connecting to, as well as awareness of what is available.


An advanced version of this meditation is to engage the frame of the body from a standing position through static engagement of the tendons in seven directions, for 5–30-minute practices. Learning frame and proper posture through engagement of the tendons is a book/art unto itself and one of the very few arts that do not dissolve with time. I will be diving deeper into this and other more advanced tree techniques in the other books in this series, The Body and the Martial Way, and Dissolving the Material World through Dissolving the Senses.

Technique 19: Intention Shield

An intention shield or bubble is exactly that, a shield or bubble of intention, formed from a psychic energetic intention set forth. These shields or bubbles are for self-protection or to hold protective space in an area. Shields are not something I personally suggest using all the time.

I use these when I feel I may become under attack by a force and feel the need for a shield, such as when I am going to open myself up for exploratory purposes, or the holding space for a person or area in which a group of people are going to open up to energies for exploratory purposes; I wish to create a space bound from spiritual mischief makers and those energies that seek to harm or mislead to enter within the boundary of the shield or bubble.

Being concerned with other people’s emotional (emoting) states, their thoughts (perceptions) is to me awareness, not something to avoid although you may want to have a boundary. An intention protection practice filters out unnecessary negativity and uncomfortable spiritual encounters. It is protective but will not isolate you or shut you down from experiences.

Don’t have a shield or filter that absorbs the negative. Just filter what out what is not edifying and keep a boundary. You do not need to filter negative energies, nor should you. On the same note, do not forget to take down your shields or bubbles, or you may end up with a lot of invisible protective layers that will not serve you over time.


Working off the tree meditation, make your connection with full intent to the grid of the totality. Create a boundary within a section of it, an energetic grid of your own that blocks out whatever intention is set forth.

Planting your seed of intention, set the declaration of intention for the shield or bubble, such as: My intention is to serve Source!

We are One, and in One, I am a humble servant! In love and unity, I connect with the singularity to bring in only higher vibrational energies to assist in shielding out any lower density energies not meant for me at this time, filtering that which does not serve. Allow in only that which serves or is meant for me at this time within the boundary of the shield.

Visualize the spark of life birthing the seed of your intention, growing from your light being and inside each and every one of your atoms out and around them, forming into an energetic grid that expands out with your etheric roots energetically weaving the tree of life pattern.

Planting a seed of intention flowers to life within the tree of life,
from the seed cracking open, blooming forth. 

Well and water the planted intention to feed and build the growing boundary with love, light and the higher resonating energetic frequencies that are plentiful and all encompassing. Visualize the intention growing and weaving throughout you. You can get creative, even creating with the Elements such as Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Metal, Crystal or use one or a blend of the following samples. Keep in mind the creation from your intention is only limited to your imagination.

Crystal boundary - Visualize watching the grid form from the seed of intention, organically growing, encasing you or the boundary set forth.
Light shield - Connect to the whole via the tree meditation, filling yourself with light, setting your intention for the shield, visualizing the shield of light forming.
Mirror shield - Connect to the whole and visualize a mirror organically growing from underneath you, up and around you, encasing you, shielding you by reflecting whatever is cast into the mirror.
Visualize and feel yourself, or that of your boundary fully encased in the energetic, elemental, light, crystal, mirror, etc. shield. Remain mindful of your intent, continuing to water regularly by full intent connection and watering this bloomed seed of intent.

*Remember to take the shield down.

Technique 20: Yantras

Yantra in Sanskrit, where the word first originated in written text, means in literal terms contraption or machine, a mechanism in aiding meditation and unlocking truths. They are a form of vehicle in a mystical diagram, images that emanate from the central point, the Bindu, represented by a dot or small circle—or may remain invisible.

Yantra represents the point from which all of creation emanates. The Bindu may be presented in the form of a linga, a universal symbol for Ultimate Reality, a visible expression of the invisible.

The linga is not simply a visible symbol of invisible Truth; it is quite literally a manifestation of that Truth.
Yantras typically have several geometric shapes radiating concentrically from the center, including triangles, circles, hexagons, octagons, and symbolic lotus petals.

Yantras are most often used along with mantra as aid, as mantras are essentially thought-forms representing divinities or cosmic powers, exerting their influence by means of sound vibrations, which correlate with a particular yantra. Sound is considered as important as form in yantra, if not more important, since form in its essence is sound condensed as matter.

Imagination of the mind is a key in unlocking the mysteries of the Verse. These assist in unlocking the mind of imagination in a purposefully crafted way of making the unseen seen.

Using any of these as a yantra, envision the image in 3D or beyond, as this may give you a better view of the structure we are a part of, as well as understanding some of the symbolism used throughout the world. It is formed from a language unto itself, the true universal

If you have read The Universal Playing Field of this book series you may notice after viewing these yantras that I have broken these down for you, as these are keys to unlocking this information for yourself through wisdom of experience rather than knowledge from another perspective. These are gifts waiting to be unwrapped.

As an example, two-dimensional images called autostereograms hide an underlying three-dimensional image provided the correct vergence is achieved.
These are similar in that they are optic puzzles.

As you are viewing these, start by focusing on the centermost point, then working to view them three-dimensionally. Then four-dimensionally, five, six, and so on. Use the knowledge of the planes described in an earlier chapter along with the expansion from micro to macro as it expands from zero nothingness to something continuing to divide and expand on its plane.

Then it is creating a new larger plane, growing larger plane by plane, following the same pattern, only in expansion.


Viewing these yantras this way allows one to develop the given ability to conceive and then be able to view multidimensionally. Opening veils of perception.

Here I present a few yantras - The Philosopher’s Stone, The Unalome, The Hall of Gods, Flower of Life yantra, and Sri yantra. There are many others such as Baglamukhi yantra, Bhuvaneshwari yantra, Durga yantra, Tara yantra, Seed of Life yantra; these are but a few of them that I have found helpful on my journey to unlocking the mysteries of the Verse.

Note:* A reason this is important is that once you see how the structure is, and as your perception grows to wrap your mind somewhat around it, from expanding the perception of imagination to see or think in more than just a three-dimensional construct, it becomes easier to perceive it.

The Philosopher’s Stone

The philosopher's stone

The Philosopher’s Stone is a key which displays the micro to macro, inner and outer. Interestingly, it looks like an old-fashioned keyhole and has been in use as such, because understanding it unlocks doors. Use this as a yantra. You may seek all over the world and never find the fountain of life (youth) in which the rivers flow. Though, seek inwards and you shall find. One of the things to do with this yantra is to repeat the pattern inward, as well as outward.

Great Hall of the Gods

Hall of Lugh

Great Hall of the Gods or Sigil of the Cosmos: the wheel is the sign of the wheel of life/dharma, a representation of the tree of life, in which the turning of the wheel is the turning of the eternal order of the Heavens, of the Sun, Moon, and Stars, a map for the Heavens as what is up is also down, what is out is also in.


The eight spokes on the wheel also depict the primary seven sounds in which their highs and lows = eight, and the primary seven spectrums of light with their shadows and highlights = eight. Light and sound are harnessed by the trident wrapped around the wheel, drawing the energy of light and sound into the triple realm, the inner, middle, and outer worlds.

The spiral depicts the river of life and death in the positive and negative streams, as the two are one and the same, the cosmic breath of consciousness, the river of life as well as the unshaped potential of all beings. The trident wrapped around the spiral of life/death energy is harnessing and drawing energy into the triple realm, the inner, middle, and outer worlds.

The triple square pattern is a depiction of the many phases, the Verse macro to micro, the outer, middle, and inner worlds. The symbol of the X quartering the worlds displays the interconnectedness of the inner-middle-outer lower worlds/kingdoms which may be viewed as the cross of suffering. The X or cross signifies light, sound and consciousness, and life energy/prana. In the 3,6,9 terms = 3 light, 6 sound, 9, consciousness and life energy.

It is the Wheel of Becoming (Bhavachakra), a representation of one’s tree of life, the turning of the wheel being the motion of our own actions from moment to moment. That motion is what determines what we will become, as what we are now was made by and is reliant on what we did before. At the center axis of the wheel are the factors around which all conditioned material existence spins: craving, aversion, and ignorance of reality. This square ‘wheel’ is one you mold yourself, unbeknownst to those unable to see.

Together, these signs affirm the structure of the Order of the Worlds. This motif is referred to by many as the Hall of Lugh, which represents the pattern of the Great Hall of the Gods.

Sri Yantras

Sri yantra

The Sri Yantra consists of nine interlocking triangles surrounding a central point (bindu). These triangles represent the cosmos and the human body. Unlock this two-dimensional Shri Yantra by working to see it three dimensional, four dimensional and so on, breaking boundaries of what was thought could be perceived.

The Unalome

Unilome yantra

The Unalome represents the winding path a person takes during their existence, the path we take to enlightenment. This is a symbol signifying an individual’s transcendence on Earth. This symbol is about analyzing what we do on a day-to-day basis and learning from it, so we can learn to be more benevolent in this life.

Technique 21: No Enemy, No Self Technique

This advanced technique is told in the form of a story.

ONCE UPON A TIME there was a Master of combat called Shoken. His house was plagued by a big rat. It ran about even in broad daylight. One day Shoken shut the room door and gave the household cat an opportunity to catch the rat. But the rat flew at the cat’s face and gave it such a sharp bite that it ran off screeching. Evidently the creature couldn’t be got rid of so easily. So the master of the house collected together a number of cats that had won a fair reputation in the neighborhood and let them into the room. The rat hunched itself up in a corner.

As soon as a cat approached it, it bit the cat and scared it off. The rat looked so nasty that none of the cats dared to take it on a second time. That put Shoken into a perfect rage. He went after the rat himself, determined to kill it. But the wily beast escaped every blow and feint from the experienced Master; he just couldn’t wear it down. In his attempts to do so, he split doors, shojis, karakamis, and so forth. But the rat flashed through the air like lightning, jumped up at his face, and bit the Master. At last, running with sweat, he called out to his servants: “They say that six to seven cho from here there is the toughest and cleverest cat in the world. Bring it here!

The servant brought the cat. It didn’t look so very different from the other cats. It didn’t look particularly sharp or bright. So Shoken didn’t expect anything special from it. But he thought
he would try it all the same, so he opened the door and let it into the room. The cat entered very softly and slowly as if it was expecting nothing out of the ordinary. But the rat recoiled and stayed motionless. So the cat approached it slowly and deliberately and carried it out in its mouth.

That evening the defeated cats met in Shoken’s house, respectfully accorded the old cat the place of honor, paid it homage and said humbly: “We are all supposed to be highly efficient. We have all practiced and sharpened our claws in order to defeat all kinds of rats, and even weasels and otters. We had never suspected that there could be a rat as strong as that one. But tell us, what art did you use to vanquish it so easily? Do not keep your art a secret. Let us into the mystery.” The old cat laughed and said: “You young cats are indeed efficient. But you don’t know the right way to go about things. And so when something unexpected happens, you’re unsuccessful. But first tell me how you have practiced.”

A black cat came out to the front and said: “I come from a line of celebrated rat catchers. I too decided to become one. I can jump over screens two meters high; I can force myself through a tiny hole that only rats can negotiate. From the time I was a kitten I have practiced all the acrobatic arts. Even when I wake up and I still haven’t quite come to, and I see a rat scampering across the balcony, I get it straightway. But that rat today was stronger and I suffered the most frightful defeat that I have ever experienced in my whole life. I have been put to shame.”

Then the old cat said: “What you have practiced is only technique (shosa), sheer physical skill. But your spirit is preoccupied with the question: ’How am I going to win?’ And that problem is still consuming you when you reach the target. When the ancient Masters taught ’technique’, they did so in order to show their pupils a ’means of the way’ (michisuyi). Their technique was simple yet contained the highest truth. But posterity has been preoccupied with technique and technique alone. In that way much has been discovered according to the rule: if you do this or that, then this will happen. But what does happen? No more than dexterity-skill pure and simple. The traditional way has been abandoned; much ingenuity has been applied to an exhaustive pitting of technique against technique, until we have indeed reached the point of exhaustion.

We can go no further. That always happens when people think of technique and success and put no more than ingenuity into play. Ingenuity-cleverness is however a function of the spirit, if it is not based on the Way and aims at perfect skill, then it falls victim to error and what has been achieved is lost. Think about this and practice from now on in the right spirit.”
At that a big tabby-cat came forward and said: “In the art of fighting it is a matter of the spirit, and it must always be so.

Therefore I have always practiced strength of spirit (ki wo neru).
As far as I am concerned, my spirit always seems as hard as steel and free and charged with the presence of the Spirit that fills heaven and earth (Mencius). As soon as I can see an enemy, he is already vanquished; no sooner do I see him than he is thrall to that mighty Spirit and I have already won the battle in advance! I do so quite instinctively, as the situation demands. I move according the feel of my opponent; I take the rat from the
right or the left as I wish and I anticipate my adversary’s every move. I never worry about technique as such. It happens of its own accord. If a rat runs across the balcony, I have only to stare at it for it to fall into my clutches.

But the rat of which we are speaking comes without shape or form and goes without leaving any trace. What does that mean? I cannot say.”

Then the old cat remarked: “What you have been concerned with is, of course, the effect of that great Power that fills heaven and earth. But what you have actually achieved is only a
mental power and not that good power which serves the name of Good. The very fact that you are conscious of the power with which you intend to conquer prevents your victory. Your ego is in question. But what if your adversary’s ego is stronger than your own? When you try to overcome the enemy with the superior force of your own power, he pits his own power against yours.
Do you imagine that you alone can be as strong and that all others must be weak? The real question is how to behave when there is something that in spite of all one’s willing one cannot defeat with the superior weight of one’s own power. What you experience as ’free and tempered’ and ’filling heaven and earth’ within you is not the great Power itself (ki no sho) but only its reflection in you. It is your own spirit, and therefore but a shadow of the great Spirit. It appears to be the great power, but in reality it something quite different. The spirit of which Mencius speaks is strong because it is permanently illumined by great understanding. But your spirit obtains its power only under certain conditions. Your power and that of which Mencius speaks have different origins. They are as different from one another as the eternal flow of a river, for instance the Yangtse Kiang is from a sudden downpour one night.

But what is the spirit that one should rely on when face with an enemy who cannot be conquered with any mere restricted mental power (kisei)? That is the real question! There is a proverb that says: ’A rat in the trap will even bite the cat.’ The enemy is in the jaws of death he has no resources to depend on. He forgets his life: he forgets all need; he forgets himself; he is beyond victory and defeat. And thus his will tempered like steel. How could one conquer him with a spiritual power which one scribes to oneself alone?”

Then an aging gray cat came slowly forward and said: “Yes, it is indeed as you say. Mental power whatever its strength has a form (katachi) in itself. But whatever has form, however small it may be, can be grasped. Therefore I have for a long time trained my soul (kokoro, the power of the heart). I do not practice the power which overcomes others spiritually (sei), like the second cat. And I do not hit out around me (like the first cat). I reconcile myself with my opponent, get on to equal terms with him, and do not oppose him in any way. If the other is stronger than I am, then I will simply acknowledge that, and so to speak give into his will. My art is rather to gather the flying pebbles in a loose cloth. A rat tries to attack me may be as strong as you like, but it will find nothing to fly against, nothing to get to grips with. But today’s rat simply didn’t respond to my trick. It came and went as mysteriously as God Himself. I have never encountered one like it”.

Then the old cat said: “What you call propitiation does not arise from being, from the Greatness of Nature. It is an artificial, botched-up reconciliation - a mere artifice. Your conscious intention is to elude the adversary’s spirit of attack. But because you are thinking about it, however fleetingly, he realizes what your plan is. If you try to conciliate him, with a spirit thus composed, then your spirit (in so far as it concentrates on the attack)
will be confused, mixed up, and your sharpness of perception and action will be considerably reduced. Whatever you do with fully conscious intent restricts the original pulsation of the Greatness of Nature as it takes effect from the depths of Mystery: it upsets the flow of your spontaneous movement.

How then are you to put a miraculous power into practice? Only when you think of nothing, and do nothing, and in your movement surrender
yourself to the pulsation of Being (shizen no ka), will you have lost all tangible form, and be so that nothing on earth can act as a counter-form; then there is no enemy left to resist you.”
“I do not believe that everything that you have practiced is pointless. Everything can be a means of the Way. Technique and Tao can be one and the same, and then the great Spirit, the “governing Spirit”, is already incorporated in you and is revealed in the action of your body.

The power of the great Spirit (ki) serves the human person (ishi). He who has free access to (ki) can encounter everything within infinite freedom and in
the right way. If his spirit is reconciled, it will not shatter ever on gold or rock, and need exert no special power in battle. Only one thing is necessary: that no trace of egotism of I-consciousness comes into play, lest everything should be lost. If you think about
all that, however fleetingly, then all will be artificial. It will not arise from Being, from the original pulsation the body of the Way (do-tai). Then the adversary will not submit to you but resist in his own behalf. What sort of a way or art is to be used?

Only when you are in that disposition which is free of all conscious of self, when you act without acting, without intention and stratagem, in unison with the Greatness of Nature, are you on the right Way. Abandon all intent, practice purposelessness and let it happen simply out of Being. This way is unending, inexhaustible.” And the old cat added something astounding: “You must not believe that what I have told you today is the highest of things. Not long ago a certain tom-cat was living in the next village to me. He slept the whole day long. No trace of anything resembling spiritual power was to be observed in him. He just lay there like a lump of wood. No one had ever seen him catch a rat . But wherever he was, there wasn’t a rat to be seen! And wherever he popped up or laid himself down, no rat ever appeared. 

One day I looked up and asked what that meant. He did not answer me. I asked him another three times. He was silent. But that doesn’t mean that he didn’t want to reply. Instead he clearly didn’t know what he should say. But that is how it is: “He who knows says nothing, and he who says it knows it not”. The cat had forgotten about himself and everything roundabout him. He had become “nothing”. He had reached the highest level of purposelessness. We can say that he had found the way of divine knighthood, which is to vanquish without killing. I am still a long way behind him”.

Shoken heard all this as if in a dream, came by, greeted the old cat and said: “For a long time now I have been practicing the art of fighting, but I have not yet reached the end. I have absorbed your insights and I think that I have understood the true meaning of my way, but I ask you earnestly to tell me something more about your craft”.
The old cat replied; “How is that possible? I am only an animal and the rat is my food. How should I know about human affairs. All I know is this: the meaning of the art of combat is not merely a matter of vanquishing one’s opponent. It is rather an art by which at a given time one enters into the great clarity of the primal light of death and life (seishi wo akiraki ni suru).


In the midst of all his technical practice a true Samurai should always practice the spiritual acquisition of that clarity of mind. For that purpose however he must plumb before all else the teaching of the ground of being of life and death (shi no ri). But only he acquires great clarity of mind who is free from everything which could lead him off that way (hen kyoku). When Being and encounter with Being (shin ki) are left undisturbed, to themselves, free from the ego and from all things, then whenever it is appropriate it can declare it’s presence complete freedom. But if your heart even fleetingly attaches itself to something, then Being itself is attached and is turned into something arrested in itself . But if it becomes something
arrested in itself, then there is something there that resists the I that is in itself . Then two entities face one another and fight one another for dominance.”


“If that happens then the miraculous functions of being, even though used to all change, are restricted, the jaws of death gape close, and that clarity of perception proper to Being is lost. How then is it possible to meet the adversary in the right frame and peacefully contemplate “victory and defeat”? Even if you win, you win no more than blind victory that has nothing to do with the spirit of the true art of combat.”

“Being free from all things does not of course mean an empty void. Being as such has no nature in itself. In and for myself it is beyond all form. It stores up nothing in itself. But if one grasps and remembers even fleetingly what it is and how fragile it is, the great Power will cling to it and it will contain the equilibrium of forces that flows from the Source. But if Being is even slightly subject to or imprisoned by something, it is no longer able to move freely and cannot pour forth in all its fullness.

If the equilibrium that emanates from Being is disturbed, if its power is at all apparent it quickly overflows; but without power its balance is inadequate. Where it overflows, too much
power breaks out and there is no holding it back. Where it is inadequate, the active spirit is weakened and wanting is never sufficient for the situation it is called on.
What I call freedom of things means only that if one does not lay up stores, one has nothing to rely on. Without secure provision there is no position to take up and nothing objective to have recourse to. There is neither an I nor an anti-I. When something comes along, one meets it as it were unawares, without any impact. In the I-Ching (the Book of Changes), it is written “Without thinking, without action, without movement; quite still. Only thus can one proclaim the nature and law of things from within, quite unconsciously, and at last become one with heaven and earth. Whoever practices and understands the art of combat in that sense is close to the truth of the Way”.

When Shoken heard this, he asked: “What does that mean, that neither a subject nor an object, neither an nor an anti-I is there”?

The cat answered: “If and because an I is there, there is an enemy there. If we do not present ourselves as an I, then there is no opponent there. What we call opponent, adversary, enemy, is merely another name for what means opposition or counterpart. In so far as things maintain a form, they also presuppose a counter-form. But wherever something is present as a something, it has a specific form. If my being is not constituted as a specific form, then there is no counter-form there.”

“When there is no counterpart, no opposition, there is nothing which can come forth to oppose me. But that means that neither an I nor an anti-I is there. If one wholly abandons self and thus becomes free, from the foundations upwards and from everything, then one will be in harmony with the world and one with all things in the great universal oneness. Even when the enemy’s form is extinguished one remains unconscious of it . That does not mean that one is wholly oblivious of it, but that one does not dwell on it, and the spirit continues free from all attachment and even in its actions responds simply and freely from the center of being. If the spirit is no longer by possessed by anything and is free from all obsession, then the world, just as it is wholly our world and one with us. That means that henceforth one apprehends it beyond good and evil, beyond sympathy or antipathy. One is no longer caught up in anything in the world. All oppositions which present themselves to us, profit and loss, good and evil, joy and suffering, have their origin us. Therefore in the whole spread of heaven and earth nothing is so worthy of discernment as our own being. “

“An ancient poet said: “A speck dust in one’s eye and even the three worlds are still too narrow”. If nothing matters to us any longer and is no longer of consequence to us, then the smallest bed is too wide for us. “ In other words, if a speck of dust enters our eye, the eye will not open; for we can see clearly only if there is nothing within, but now the dust has penetrated to obstruct the vision within. Similarly with being that shines forth as light and illumination, and is essentially free of everything that is “something”. When however something does present itself, the very presentation destroys its essence. Another writer put it this way: “If one is surrounded by foes, by a hundred thousand enemies, one’s form is so to speak pulverized. But my being, my nature, is mine and remains my own, however strong my enemy may be . No adversary can penetrate my being my self ”. Confucius said: “You cannot steal the being of even a simple man”.

But if the spirit is confused, then being will turn against us.”
“That is all that I can tell. Now return to yourselves and know yourselves. A master can only teach his pupil the lesson and try to justify it. But “I myself ” have to realize the truth and take it as my own. That is called self-appropriation (jitoku). It is transferred from heart to heart (ishin denshin). It is a bestowal byextraordinary means, beyond instruction and erudition  (kyogai betsuden) that does not mean that the Master’s teaching is to be contradicted. All it means is that even a Master cannot pass on the truth itself. That is not only true of Zen.”
“From the spiritual exercises of the ancients on the art of forming the soul right up to the arts proper, self appropriation is always the essence of the matter, and it is always transmitted from heart to heart, apart from tradition, from all teachings which are handed down.


The meaning of all “teaching” is only to show what everyone possesses in himself without already knowing it, and then to make him aware of it. There is no secret that the master can “hand over” to the pupil. Teaching is easy. Listening is easy. But it is difficult to become aware of what one has in one’s self, to mark it out and really to take possession of it. That is known as looking into one’s own being. It is self perception, the self perception of being (ken-sei, kensho). If that happens to us then we have Satori. It is the great awakening out of the
dream of errors. Awakening, looking into one’s own being, perception of the self one really is - they are all one and the same thing”. [81]

- External witnessing - Sitting back and observing, remembering not everything needs a reaction.
- Observing without interpretation or analysis.
- Recognizing that you are dealing with these entities.
- Having compassion through understanding.
- Learning to become affectionately detached with non-engagement.
- Seeing the burden of other people’s responsibilities as not your own.
- Mastering the mind to remain focused.
- Counting to ten, simple but remarkably effective. When you find yourself starting to be overwhelmed by emotions and can catch yourself before reacting, count to ten with long deep breaths.
- Self-reflecting and realizing.
- Filling yourself with love.
- Learning neutrality to the entities.
- Renouncing earthly ways (the defiling states of ego/entities).

- Learning the ephemeral nature of things.
- Learning to be actionary rather than reactionary.
- Being silent, listening to understand rather than respond. Witnessing
without response.
- Knowing neutrality, developing an equanimous mind.
- Separating the idea of you and the emotions as self.
- Treating your emotional energy as you would money. Investing wisely! Learning to be frugal with spiritual currency.
- Sitting with the emotional entities. Another perspective on these emotional entities is that they are not demons when you get to the root; they are triggers instilled in the program to perpetuate physical and spiritual evolution. Perceptions may change depending on what angle you are viewing from.
- Receiving hypnosis to remove mental blocks.
- Exorcising an entity – self-removal or with assistance. Each entity needs to be unattached and evicted/dissolved individually. Some may only be removed through work in a full meditation in absorption.
- Writing - We can transfer energy, so if you have something taking up a lot of energy (weighing on your mind), write what you are feeling down on paper through calligraphy, with a pen or pencil onto paper or canvas (this does not apply to writing/typing with a keyboard or a computing device).
- Repeating - creating healthy habits.
- Reprograming the self-limiting beliefs.
- Remaining in the present moment.
- Making affirmations - For example, when working on stopping a habit such as smoking. When you have an urge to smoke, rather than saying or thinking, ‘I quit! I can’t or won’t smoke!’ make an affirmation, ‘I am a nonsmoker!’, ‘Smoking is a past character trait being reprogramed.’ Place yourself in the state of mind that it already is. You are using affirmations through planting the seed of thought and word out into the universe. Plant into the mind the thought seed as though it already happened, feeling the emotional state as though it has passed. When you add in emotions and excitement, it magnifies in the body and mind, lining your electromagnetic field to the frequency of the affirmation that is emoting. Where attention goes, energy flows.
- Reprograming the mind through reverse psychology. If detoxing and experiencing a craving state, learn to accept the crawling underneath the skin, while detoxing from things like alcohol. cigarettes or other drugs. Make it something you see it for what it is, an emotional entity crawling underneath the skin in the energetic system, merely looking for its fix.
- Desire to no longer be imprisoned by whichever emotion is feeding the addiction. Flip perception, convince yourself that you enjoy the feeling or the craving. Explore the experience as it is, rather than shying from it. Get to know the feeling and entity being expressed and let it course through the body, eventually in non-judgment from neutrality.
- Emotional welling of states such of love, compassion, etc.
- Developing emotional intelligence.
- Fasting and dry fasting assist in cleansing and repairing the physical body and in immersive meditations to name a few of the benefits.
- Fasting with a Karmatic diet for spiritual health.
- Engaging in chastity or retention, no spilling of seed (release of orgasm) for man or woman. This leads to retention of often lost vital energies. Some benefits of this practice are increased energy, increased mental and physical focus, increased imagination and creativity.
- Harnessing and directing energy internally.
- Developing the state of No Mind.
-Engaging in bio-feedback techniques.
- Undertaking neuro training/neurofeedback techniques.

- Exploring plant and fungi medicine.
- Develop understanding of emptiness.
- Development of clear focused mental imagery.
- Absorption/immersion into imagination.
- Implementing deep will and fortitude to expand new awareness, remove veils, and access higher kingdoms. If you are standing at the doorway of another realm, say Heaven as you may view it, what would you say if you were greeted with, “Why do you want in?” and/or “Why should you be granted access? Something to think about and prepare for if there is a form of intention to enter other realms.
- The very first words spoken after arising from slumber are some the most powerful, so when you first arise each morning, set your intention for the day in the mind, then speak it out loud before any other words. Use this wisely as you are spelling (casting your intentions
for the day). Remain in virtue with your intentions!
- The first hour of the day is the most effective and vital for development of focus. Sharpening the focus first thing upon waking is when you are most relaxed and nearest to a trance-like state, having just come out of the dream state. This is a time and state where it is easier to program yourself, to carry out daily goals without distraction. This is better than starting with multiple tasks or electronics (social media, video games, tv), that yield a distracted, unproductive day.
- Learn to express the state you are experiencing without identifying with it. This is vital in reprogramming yourself from the identifying self-talk. The I am angry, I’m… insert any of the 108! Remember you are not ‘it’ and ‘it’ is not you. Though it is in you and when provoked,
you can feel it course through you. It is separate from you, so, ‘I am experiencing anger,’ would be a proper way to convey the experience without a verbal attachment.
We must first identify the attack, being aware and conscious of what is happening, to start engaging them correctly which is starving them of the energy they feed off by engaging the proper use of thoughts, words and actions. What to starve and what to feed can be well described in this short story.

An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life… “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego. “The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. “This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too.” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?” The old chief simply replied, “The one you feed.”[82]
~ Cherokee Story

Another basic beginner tool is if you find yourself regretting later what you have said or done, start with accountability and begin to be more purposeful in your actions.
If you recognize you have spoken an untruth, correct it by telling the truth. If you often speak words you later regret, a step is learning to bite your tongue of reaction, giving yourself some time to think on a subject before you engage, to prepare for healthy communication not based in reaction. What is your intention in your communication?
Will an emotional state achieve your intention better than a loving, kind, generous, compassionate state?

Develop patience to wait minutes, days or even for just a ten-second count. This delayed response can give you time to process through emotional or sensational triggers to work from an actionary state based in intention rather than a reactionary state. The actions of non-reaction starve the entities over time, and slowly you will reprogram yourself of old behavior patterns as well as developing more fortitude in rising above the 108.

Be attentive when victorious and when you succumb. Even if you catch yourself and find you have at that moment succumbed, you saw it, when before you would not have noticed. Be grateful that awareness is growing. Then exercise that willpower and develop the
power of resolve.

Self-validation is a valid factor for positive energetic reinforcement in beginning stages. Later stages are working to move past the perception of independent self. Self-love is learning to love yourself and creating boundaries for yourself and others, sticking to those boundaries and when crossed, loving yourself enough to walk away from unhealthy situations.

Life is too short to be anything but happy. So kiss slowly, love
deeply, forgive quickly. Take chances and never have regrets.
Forget the past but remember what it taught you.[83]
~ Abhishek Shukla,

Though these demon entities may seem scary and powerful, they are only as powerful as you allow them to be. You feed them and give them power. When you find the real power of will with resolve, you will find the power within and let go of any fear of these demons.

Start an internal dialogue and ask the entities to show themselves.
The best way to develop a better understanding is to sit with them.
Some people try to shield themselves from the emotional entities and other people’s emotions. This really is nonbeneficial, as you are attaching to the fact that you do not want to attach to those emotions.
With development of emotional intelligence, you may develop a better relationship with many of the emotional and sensational entities, becoming harmonious in that sense, thus, making it easier to have a friendly conversation with them and become affectionately

Whether we like it or not, we are all connected, some feeling this connection more than others.

In being connected, we can take on other people’s emotions and not even realize it. Some do realize it but have difficulty dealing with these emotions. As if we don’t already have enough to deal with as it is, and now we are taking on and feeling others’ emotional states. It can be confusing, draining, chaotic! Know that each time you rise above one of the emotional demons, you will no longer unconsciously take on the lower vibration of that emotion from another person. There will be no place in you that will attract that emotion from another.

For instance, as you sit with an entity of ego such as hate and get to know it, you may recognize it in others, but will not experience it inward as you would have had you never sat with it, harmonizing with that aspect of ego.
This is much like having an itch and learning how temporary it really is, not scratching it, and then it goes away. This too shall pass as they say. It is the same with emotions. Do not scratch the itch and eventually, it goes away. If you scratch it, it keeps coming back and may progress to a self-inflicted wound. We each create our own suffering by the way we choose to view each experience.

The how is in seeing it in neither a positive nor negative light, or that as everything is a gift. You can start with working on seeing the positive of the experience, flipping the mindset. Then working, it just is. This is what I am currently experiencing... Viewing it with an equanimous mind, just experience it. Let it flood over you, and you may even feel it in a centralized location. Watch the feeling, examine the feeling, until the feeling passes, changes or is gone.

Use your mind to examine the feelings rather than letting the mind’s wheels turn. Each time you do this, your mind gets stronger. I have found this to be one of the ways to strengthen the mind-body-spirit connection and fortitude of willpower.

A not-so-easy pill to swallow, is the fact that much of the time, you are fighting monsters that you yourself have fashioned. Yes, there are toxic relationships, toxic individuals, but there also exists the monsters that you have fashioned with your own mind. You think you are being chased, captured, wounded, by these monsters when in fact you alone are composed of the entire capability to dismantle them piece-by-piece, because in reality they exist in your mind and you have fashioned them as the creator of your inner world, as the author of your own epic tale. In this sense, you may reassemble your world and you may remake the plot of your own story. The key is realizing how much of the darkness is actually your own doing, digging for their roots, and figuring out how to begin dismantling.[84]

Defining a Full Meditation

A way to view the process of entering the proper state for a true meditation is to look at the mathematical construction of the grid we are a part of from the positive and negative standpoints, neutral being the innermost aspect of the mind and existence.
The minus is referencing the negative emotional and sensational triggers at varying degrees, while the positive references the positive triggers. The goal here is to neither attach to the negative nor positive in any way, but to return to center zero, the neutral, the return
to 0 = return to Source, as well (the) source of focus, as conscious talk often is spoken in multiple entendre.

987654321 - 0 + 123456789

We can look at the numbers outside of zero as a disruption to our energetic grid from disturbances of the body and mind. When we remove those positive and negative disruptions, we return to the natural neutral state. In this case, the underlining Source from
which we emanated and to which we will return, which can and should be done purposely.

So, to start a real meditation, you need to withdraw from the physical body, from thoughts, emotions, and intellect, for you to engage a true concentrated single-pointed focus with engaged imagination. Imagination being the object of information or destination brought clearly into the mind’s eye that you seek.

This is because thoughts may play a role in being a disturbance when not allowed to move freely; in this case, it is wise to remember these words.

Stopping Thoughts
Your thoughts have no roots, they have no home; they wander just like clouds. So you need not fight them, you need not be against them, you need not even try to stop thoughts. This should become a deep understanding in you, because whenever a person becomes interested in meditation he starts trying to stop thinking. And if you try to stop thoughts they will never be stopped, because the very effort to stop is a thought, the very effort to meditate is a thought, the very effort to attain Buddhahood is a thought. And how can you stop a thought by another thought? How can you stop mind by creating another mind? Then you will be clinging to the other. And this will go on and on, ad nauseam; then there is no end to it. Don´t fight – because who will fight? Who are you? Just a thought, so don´t make yourself a battleground of one thought fighting another. Rather, be a witness, you just watch thoughts floating. They stop, but not by your stopping. They stop by your becoming more aware, not by any effort on your part to stop them.[85]
~ Osho


Working and understanding the practice of all the eight limbs of yoga is important in this process in its stages, as it is perfectly laid out.

The stages of practice of this system in its eight limbs:

1. Restraints or ethics of behavior - Yama
2. Observances - Niyama
3. Physical postures - Āsana
4. Control of the prana (breath) - Pranayama

5. Withdrawal of the senses - Pratyahara
6. Concentration - Dhāraṇa
7. Awareness without judgement or attachment - Dhyāna
8. Absorption, a transcendence in a mind-body integration into a coupling with the larger whole - Samādhi

There really is no such thing as the present as the way we perceive things is an observation of the past. Every time you are experiencing something, your mind is witnessing it after the fact. Therefore, what is considered the present moment of the mind is something already passed. You are constantly viewing the past and inputting the present, which by the time you process the present information, it’s information of the past, making it so there is no presence of present moment. Instead, there is an interpretation of past experiences.

Everything is happening within you and nothing outside of you, so everything is an interpretation from the senses and emotions. Everything is interpreted by the mind and body happening solely within.
The way to become present in the actual now is to move past the mind itself, via absorption.
Absorption is as I’ve gone over in the first book of this series, The Universal Playing Field.

It’s one of the most indispensable things to do if one wants to succeed in having self-control and even a limited self-knowledge: to be able to localise one’s consciousness and move it about in the different parts of one’s being, in such a way as to distinguish between
one’s consciousness and one’s thoughts, feelings, impulses, become aware of what the consciousness is in itself. And in this way one can learn how to shift it: one can put one’s consciousness in the body, put it in the vital, put it in the psychic (that’s the best place to put it in); one can put one’s consciousness in the mind, can raise it above the mind, and with one’s consciousness one can go into all the regions of the universe. But first of all one must know what one’s consciousness is, that is, become conscious of one’s consciousness, localise it.[86]
~ Sri Aurobindo

What is localizing consciousness?

To start, it is bringing consciousness to a focal point, where the two hemispheres of the brain sync, activating the middle brain and engaging the third eye (singular eye) to open where consciousness becomes a vehicle of sight, or that of extreme hyper sense of one or more of the senses. A sovereign citizen pass to travel the omniverse. Then it progresses from there.

Localizing Consciousness

Some very direct common practices for localizing consciousness are focusing on the end of one’s nose, between the eyes, with eyes closed. Or with eyes open, staring at a single candle flame, or at the empty space right in front of you for extended periods.
I have shared others in these pages. With daily or twice daily practice, it could take months or years and usually does not happen during one of these focused meditations; it often happens when one is not even trying to do it, by just sliding into it, though it was the practice that led to the aligned state.

Understanding and applying the eight-limb system is to be able to understand the steps to enter a full meditation, applying the multiple different practices/limbs into one, to see and experience truth for yourself.

All of the seven schools of yoga are within Gnosis, yet they are in a synthesized and absolutely practical way. There is tantric Hatha Yoga in the practices of the Maithuna (Sexual Magic). There is practical Raja Yoga in the work with the chakras. There is Gnana / Jnana Yoga in our practices and mental disciplines which we have cultivated in secrecy for millions of years. We have Bhakti Yoga in our prayers and Rituals. We have Layain our meditation and respiratory exercises. Samadhi exists in our practices with Maithuna and during our deep meditations.

We live in the path of karma Yoga in our upright actions, in our upright thoughts, in our upright feelings, etc.[87]

Samuel Aun Weor

An interesting note on the eight limbs of Yoga and the Hindu Goddess Kali having eight limbs: each are eight limbs in one body of work. A lot of wisdom is within these bodies of work and should be studied, contemplated, and meditated on. The image of Kali may be used as a yantra, a mystical diagram to visualize in, so being a vehicle (machine, mechanism or contraption) to connect to the mind’s eye. In this way, we absorb the sound and or image, and unravel its puzzle box, so to speak—the information that you retain as new awareness in wisdom and knowledge of higher understanding.

Some other yantras are the Flower of Life and the Sri Yantra. Yantras are usually accompanied by a corresponding chant (mantra).
To be used holding the yantra of Kali in mind is Krim (Kreem) or Kirim (KeeReem), the mantra for the Sri Yantra is AUM.

Here is a basic breakdown:
Clearing the mind of distractions, being mindful of the feeling of the vibration of the body (first learning to feel and get to the full body and hum/vibration with no missing areas) often achieved through breathwork.

Setting an appropriate magnetic marker is important. We may do this by emotionally welling from the states of being such as of love, adoration, compassion, gratitude, etc.
Then through chanting or whatever other means of getting to the mind’s place free of distractions (many paths here), bringing in a mental image to clear focus and being with it, allowing yourself to become immersed into it (allowing your vibrational hum to resonate with the mental image as the mental image may then also begin to vibrate/hum).

When the destination, person, place or thing that is the image of focus comes clear into vision, bring that feeling of the vibration/hum you are mindful of and of which you have the image vibrating.

Allow the two vibrations to match, immersing into it/each other as it becomes you and you it, feeling the pull of the tides as it pulls you in like a moving stream. Its just like drifting into a daydream.

The process of an advanced full meditation would just add a couple of things as this also includes lifestyle practices. This also applies the remaining aspects of the full eight limbs of yoga, which can include but is not dependent on sexual restraint in holding back from orgasm (releasing seed) whether man or woman. This is a powerful internal energy for focus, concentration, and immersion, though releasing seed is not an actual inhibitor unless attachment is involved.

Lifestyle choices also come into play, such as proper ethical behavior as an unethical mind leads to a busy mind wasted on trivial business. This becomes a clouded mind focused on that of the emotional and sensational as well as personal desire and gain—or what has been done or needs to be done, is longed for or rejected, therefore distractions.
If you are in the hustle and bustle of life and are rushing, distracted by time, these become a distraction that will slow progress. Learn to relax and be with your practice, while doing your practice. So eventually, it is just your state of being.

Let me present a question.
What would you do to have a seat with the Source of creation?
In the next chapter, we will dive in and break down sorcery, greatly misunderstood in recent times due to purposeful misdirection, though anyone who has taken the time to break down the word sorcery can see the meaning in the word itself!

Key takeaways:

- In this chapter, I have given direction for twenty-one techniques. If you are left searching for more, remember this book gives a starting direction, lighting a path. I dive much deeper into these techniques and more in the other books of this series.
- I have defined a full meditation.
- I have given tools to start you on a path to understanding.
