just a minor post. I do love comments so if your thinking about saying something go ahead.
We all have one dream. Its formed in the deepest part of our hearts.
Its something dear to us. Something that is the making of us. We yearn for it. It is finding yourself. For many many years I have hidden deep within myself, not finding those who I would choose to surround myself with I’ve found life more tolerable to not be entirely me. However as with all truth it seeps out.
And slowly the thing inside is far more wonderful than the mask that was showing and you see masks all around, like some hideous doctor who horror story. Many masks upon masks. There are some who at the mention of them scorn them, others pretend innocence, but its all there if you look. Our defences are destructive in the long term. The alternative is to have an open heart, to destroy yourself over and over. It is who we all are. In destroying ourselves we become more human.
Thinking that you are not important in the grand scheme of things is flawed thought. For that is something you will never be able to definitely confirm.
There is music that calms my heart, there are places that will me with wonder and fear. There are conversations that electrify my being and focus to a point that which I am hearing where as the mundane meaningless banter of life sends me off into my minds dreaming, far from the reaches of the non dreamers.
I’ve always been a dreamer, I scorn those who do not. To dream is to think. There are those who now say that there is no God, nothing: The Atheists. But they have not seen ghosts, they have not ventured outside their bodies and they have not Healed or found the aura visible and writeable. Dreams? No. You may not ever find these things, you may not seek to find them but dismissing anothers experiences is folly. Dreams are thought – to see beyond what we are taught.
The Dream is where you fly. And you fly with your will. You can fly beyond time and place – that is you can fly into your ancestors memories and dream them as they saw them.
In this way I have seen things my parents saw but I did not. I have flew across the streets and sat on beaches where my grandparents were. And I have seen battles long before I had life here. The secret is to open your heart to pain.
But here I talk about a dream rather than realising your dream, changing your life from a false one to one in which you truly live.
I’ve talked to many different people, those trying to make magic, those meditating, those preforming healing. The skills needed to calm the mind are the first stepping stone. Each stepping stone is a skill that needs and will get deeper with practice. Quieting the mind has a large effect not just on your ability to perform magic but also in your self, your peace of mind and your mind health. Your mind is like a computer. Turning it off and on again (as any techie will tell you) is always a good idea.
The next stepping stone is the beginning of meditation beyond the quietness of the mind. To bring yourself into another awareness, to drop all awareness of what you are. Like a child seeking something new.
The steps might seem convoluted here but the next one is seeing and hearing – immersion into the imagination. At this point meditation becomes a great deal more addictive – guided meditations are a great way to start. Dreams become more vivid easier to remember and more targeted.
The next step (or leap) is the living meditation. “To live to dream”. You start to conjure in real life.I myself found this troubling to my mind because – well wasn’t this a trip to madness? If I couldn’t distinguish between dream and real world, how could I continue to function? These are questions from a mind still not at peace. The world is. You cannot change it from this state into another world. However You may become much more aware that the world you thought you new has greater depths. Like a watch that you previously marvelled at its precise timekeeping without realising it had a stopwatch, calendar and a host of other functions.
As I said, with practice….
I’d like to relate something that occurred in 2009:
Here’s some background. I had been camping with friends in oxfordshire near the white horse. Very pleasant couple of days – sunny and very warm (it was in August time I think) and I was returning home on the ‘A34’ southbound. Its a dual carriageway so rough speed in the car was 70mph ergo reasonably fast. No radio in the car and windows were up.
I started to hear a kind of male orchestral choir type sound. Quite pleasant. It got louder and louder – to the point where I thought I’d turn it down…. except as I looked down there was a twinge of shock – my radio wasn’t on, in fact I’d removed it before the trip. My next thought was some bloke was playing music so ridiculously loud..so with anger rising I looked around – only to realise how stupid that thought was – I was passing cars at speed… There was absolutely no way I’d hear it this loud from someone else’s car.
As I looked around I saw several ancient burrows. And as I past them the sound receded.
What did I hear?
I believe it was what one might call “the song of the earth” It cannot have been coming from outside so the only plausible answer is that the song was coming directly into my head.
Only a few decades ago saying I have a wand would have got you ridiculed or worse targeted by certain types through perhaps fear or anger. Now it seems through the advent of television and film these things have become the thing of childhood dreams and therefore have a great deal of acceptance although for the most part acceptance that you’re talking about some plastic toy with a “Harry Potter” type engraving.
No. Wands are not made from inorganic material. Many create wands from crystals, which produces a kind of energy though in my experience, its like holding a adult tiger wrapped in iron on a leash. Crystals are quite potent torches and are more suitable as swords than wands. A wand is an extension and a focus of your own energy. A crystal is never that. It won’t focus your energy because it’s creating its own.
Buying a wand is troublesome. The wand is an extension a focus. knowing the wood used, where the wood came from the energy put into making and constructing the wand are all part of ensuring your energy field when using the wand is wholesome.
So imagine for a moment that everything has a vibration and you perceive everything in this way. So a rock has a very slow vibration whereas air has a very very fast vibration.
For rain to fall its vibration has to slow so much that it becomes heavy and drops. An increase in vibration decreases your weight.
Vibration of one thing effects the vibration of another. So If water is in a pan which is getting hotter the vibration of the pan increases, the water then also increases.
More subtly though if a falling drop of cold water hits the head of a bird, the bird being warmer increases the drop of water’s vibration and at the same time decreases the birds.
In a human we would feel this drop in energy and might feel a tiny bit depressed. All things control their vibration to some extent. In what we perceive as death the energy drops to a standard lower level for the type of being. As the vibration lowers the parts of the being and parts crumble to dust which is close to vibrationless.
