really never heard of this cult before.
I don't really have a name for it. It's sort of a self-learned style. To describe how I learned it would take a novel (*lots* of background
The process however, is reasonably simple. Get yourself comfortable, lay back with your eyes closed (sometimes light, non-vocal music helps as well -
when I used music, it was always something along the lines of Enya, Enigma, or Dead Can Dance). Pick a point in the dark, and focus on it. Breathe
steadilly, and imagine that with every breath you draw in, you're drawing in serenity and total relaxation. With every breath you exhale, you're
letting go of your thoughts and stresses. Eventually, this will lead to a clear mind, focusing on nothing more than a single point in the void.
Now that your mind is clear and your body is relaxed, focus on that point. Draw it closer to you, and it'll start to get larger. It is the doorway
you're searching for.
(can you tell I've led people through meditations before?)
Once the point has grown large enough to fit through, let yourself slide through the doorway. Don't force it. I'll come naturally. What is on the
other side is not something I can predict for you. It's a very personal thing for everyone. It's a private perception of the otherworld (or astral
realm, depending on who you talk to). Even though this otherworld is the same plane of existence for everyone who can reach it, one's perception of
it varies greatly for each of us. It is in here that you can find other spirits, or spirits will contact you.
Just a warning though, for the apparent serenity of the otherworld, it can be a very dangerous place. If you have any sort of psychic shielding or
other protection that you can use, now would be the time to have it up. Also, be very wary of other spirits that approach you. They're not always
as they seem. It's a very "rabbit hole" sort of enviornment. Much like dealing with people, it's always better to be wary, yet
non-confrontational with anyone who approaches you, rather than just accepting everything with open arms. Things can follow you back from here. Just
be aware of that, and make sure your path is clear for the way home. Be careful not to bring anything through unless you specifically want to bring
it through. I've made that mistake....
