So I wanted to conduct a cool little experiment based off guided meditation.
First, For this experiment you will need a dark and cool room. Cool enough to feel slightly chilled when you begin but not cold where you are
Second, You will need or not need the following. Either music of your choice meant for mediation, like gregorian chant or other soothing music with no
discernable vocals. If not complete silence is best. If you have background noise you cant avoid try the music at a low tone...just enough to drown
out the rest.
Third, You will either need very loose fitting clothing or none at all. Nude with no jewelry is best.
Fourth, a comfortable pillow or rug to sit on.
So the purpose of this guided meditation is to enhance our perception of our bodies and loosen our grip on our senses by regulating body temperature
and disassociating with nerve endings. If you suffer from chronic pain, this could help.
I am not an expert but an enthusiast. This has no medical concerns besides the obvious you should know about yourself already. If you cant sit indian
style, sit how ever you like. If you have a cold, or are sick, dont use the chilled room. Whatever.
Ok, so with the setting in place, sit down indian style or how ever you are most comfortable. If you want to lay down that is also fine. I started
doing this sitting down and now lay down since I have learned not to fall asleep. That is more dependant on being more or less physically fit.
So, the first thing we do is just sit close your eyes, and let the thoughts we have bottled up come up naturally. While letting your mind decompress
don't hang onto any particular thought. As they come and demand more attention, a counter thought or follow up thought on your end, just let go and
know that you are not here to think about that. Like being at the car wash and ignoring the low gas light on your car. You did not come to gas up the
car, and even though running out of gas would be a concern, you came to the car wash to wash you car.
Know the purpose of your time. Repeat to yourself that there is nothing for you here. You are here alone and that nothing you brought with you is
really there. You came alone, and you are there only with yourself. The outside world exists outside the bubble you have created. You are sitting in a
Feel your nudity. Feel the connection to the state you came into this world in. With your eyes closed imagine yourself sitting there. See your body
and do not judge it pleasant or flawed. Just see it as you would if you just died and were leaving the flesh. What would how your body looks even
matter? You will now be spending eternity as energy or whatever. Stay there for as long as possible until you start to notice small details about
yourself as you look on in your mind at yourself.
So in that thought of yourself sitting, begin to sit down next to your body that you have been watching. In your mind see yourself sitting next to
yourself. Whichever side is fine. Just sit next to you sitting there as you pictured in your mind.
Stay like this for as long as necessary until you start to wander in mind....the two of you. Stay until the room, the void you are in begins to travel
with both of you staying still. Do not focus on where the room goes. No matter where it is still a void and apart from everything. The world, heaven
or hell you imagine. This is the void in between all that only YOU exist in.
As the two travel, notice the sensations of your body. Know that they belong to the one sitting next to you. The physical you is feeling. Know then
that all else that you feel belongs to you. The you sitting next to the physical you.
When the distinction is clear in your mind, imagine both of you stand. As you stand see your hand outstretch next to you and take hold of the other
hand of you. Outstretch your physical hand and feel the spiritual hand you have also outstretched in it. Remember the proprietary nature of feeling.
The flesh feels one, the spirit feels the other.
Staying in that distinction and feeling your hand in your hand.....open your spiritual eyes, and open your physical mouth. Breath in a long breath to
your satisfaction. Exhale through both your nose and mouth. Imagine your spiritual eyes BLINK, and repeat another breath.....
Do this several times until you feel as though you no longer want to.....imagine that this satisfaction will also mean that your spiritual eyes need
not ever blink. They can remain open as long as you breath to your satisfaction.
Close your mouth and breathe normally through your nose.
Now, with the two you standing, imagine that the spiritual you is slowly turning to cold water from the ground up. That as the water seeps up, his
spiritual body is becoming fluid. At the same time imagine that your physical body is turning into molten steel. See the hot metal creep up through
your feet and transform them into fluid hot metal.
When this image is clear enough, imagine that the water and metal are now seeping into your veins, becoming them. In both of you the water and steel
are now flowing all throughout your bodies.
Feel the cold in your veins of your spiritual self, feel the hot metal in your physical veins.
sit with this as long as you like.
Now I want you to remember that each body feels its own emotions. Sit contemplating the sensations you feel and remember to whom they belong.
In this imagine that the transformation is complete and there are now the two yous standing next to eachother.
One flowing clear and COLD water, the other hot and fluid molten steel.
Now imagine that the floor these two things crept up from is them. There is the cold water you standing on water, and the molten metal you standing on
Now see that you have not let go of each other's hands. No matter the visuals you have seen before, know that you have not let go of each other. See
the steam rise from your hands still touching. Now, take the leg closest to the other you and imagine that the other you does the same, step into your
other yous place....the water foot stepping into metal, and the metal foot into the water.
As you do this see the two bodies merging. Know that you are now becoming one....that you never let go of each other, and now are willfully stepping
into each one.
See now a body you occupy with half molten metal and the other half flowing cold water. See the steam shoot from jets all along your center between
these two halfs where they meet. In your head, upper torso, belly, genitals.....all shooting streams of steam between these two opposing halfs. Feel
the steam leaving your spine and the back of your skull in these areas as well.
Now see that you have an arm of each. One hot metal the other frozen water. Then see you have legs of each...then see that each leg is standing on its
corresponding form. Metal on metal, water on water. See that you are standing as two halfs made one, each in his element.
Then see that you are looking through the eyes of this new form...looking out. Turn and as you place each foot on the other element see the steam
rise. Your cold water foot on molten metal floor. Your molten metal foot on cold ice floor.
As the steam rises see it dissipate....see as the metal half of your new singular form cools and solidifies into clean and sleek solid metal. See as
the water side of you feazes and solidifies into ice
