An interesting hypothesis. I'm curious as to the reason of unwillfully created thought which creates fear, worry, anxiety, or resentment to the
I believe that all unwilfully created thought, and emotional responses to situations, is the work of the ego(s). These thoughts are used to draw your
attention away from stillness, from the now, from the present moment, and into a mind-made past or future which the ego thinks will fulfill you. A
moment that offers you MORE than this moment.
The ego cannot live in the now. It feeds on the vibrational frequency of certain situations which it projects into the future or relives in the past,
these situations give it energy, and strenghten its false sense of self.
I agree that those thoughs are not created by YOU, by your consciousness, however the origination of those thoughts and feelings I feel is
So don't beat yourself up when you have a lot of chatter while trying to meditate. Instead, affirm within that you are just being receptive to the
energies that are being channeled into you. Once you do that, you slowly learn to discriminate between your own thoughts and feelings and telepathic
influences and messages from those in the discarnate dimensions.
I agree the MOST important part is not to beat yourself up. Do not
identify with those thoughts, they are not your own. Observe them without
judgement, they will dissolve along with the ego. When we start to become more present during the day the ego is fed less and less, and our
consciousness starts to grow.
If an unwilfully created thought pops into your head observe it. There is now an observer
and an observed
. YOU are the observer, the ego
is the observed. Once the ego is being observed, you are present. The ego cannot live in stillness, in precense and it will dissolve, freeing
consciousness as it does so. This is what is known as alchemy, it is the path to liberation.
Sigmund Freud taught that when we go to sleep at night a portion of our brain sleeps while another portion of our brain is active creating dreams for
us. Not true in my estimation and experience. What really happens when we sleep at night is we become more receptive to telepathic messages from
Spirit that are usually clothed in symbolic meaning.
The dream world is not in this dimension. It is in the astral, the 5th dimension. Our subconcious creates dream imagery, clouding the objectiveness of
the dimension. We certainly become more receptive to messages, as we can be contacted by other beings in the astral. This will happen as you become
more aware, and the dream world is replaced by the objective astral plane. It can be conveyed symbolically in a dream, or given to you literally when
you are talking 1-to-1.
Now as far as meditation goes I like to slowly shift into stillness. Once you become present in your day to day life every moment becomes a
A technique I find particularily useful is the following one:
Get into your preferred meditation pose and become aware of your breathing. Fill all of your lungs. If your shoulders move up and down while breathing
you are doing shallow breathing, and only filling 1/3 of your lungs. If this is the case do not worry, it is not too important now.
Relax your entire body by flooding consciousness into each body part, until each one feels relaxed. Then do a "wave" of consciousness that goes all
the way up, and then down.
Once you are completely relaxed, and aware of your breathing slowly start to become aware of your thought processes. Observe them, do not judge or get
irritated by them. You will notice as you observe them and do not identify with them they will slowly dissolve. Continue doing this and you will
notice there will start to be a noticeable gap
between each thought. This gap will become larger as you continue to practice. The gap is
complete stillness in the present, it is complete acceptance of the now.
This is a very simple meditation that if done correctly can greatly help you to achieve a state of no-thought, a state in which you are not identified
with your ego - true peace.
