I read through the "Proof Positive..." thread and feel like giving the
brain technique a try.
I would suggest that anyone interested in this should sit down a few times and give it a try. I will admit that this is potentially a very dangerous
endeavor that could open one to unknown hazards - but what the hell?!
Actually, I liken it somewhat to using a ouija board, except you're using more of a meditation without any sort of device, or physical tool.
Given that, I would suggest embarking on something like that with an open mind and heart, a clear determination or idea of what you want to acheive,
some cajones, and a request - every time - for protection from whatever source you are familiar with (i.e., God, white light of the creator,
friends/guides/angels, anything you're comfortable with).
AlienAgenda started that thread, and suggests this technique establishes some sort of higher vibrational experience, and eventually, contact with what
he calls the "grays" - but only if you ask and really intend for that to happen.
Otherwise it sounds like you can enjoy some very enlightening and profound experiences. Some long time ATS posters, who claim to be skeptics, tried
the techniques and had some very bizarre experiences. The proof of these can only be confirmed through personal experience. It seems that you decide
how far you want to go with these experiences. The big question is, Is there a door opened that can't be closed once you hit a certain point?
AlienAgenda suggests that if you discontinue and stop the meditation technique, that eventually these things will subside. But I wonder...
Buddhist monks meditate on symbols and sounds, etc., and achieve gradually higher and deeper levels of meditation this way, and are able to affect
physiological changes. Monks are told about, and experience, seeing various, what they call, divas, or beings, including the Buddha.
These entities, they're told and learn, appear very real, but the monks are told to go past these to the deeper states of meditation where satori or
egolessness can be attained. There are also abilities that the meditator develops as they go through these initial meditative stages, which can
include experiencing past lives, mind reading, telekenesis, etc. (I'm sure you can read about this in magazines at Fresh Fields/Whole Foods lol).
However, the monks are advised not to be distracted or remain in these states, because they are parlor tricks and do not show them the "true way".
If you're distracted by these things you lose out on the true beautitude and real goal of meditation, according to the Buddhists. It's a terrific
thing, but I do remember the Buddha saying that there is no one path to truth. Go your own way...
I do know that, ideally, anyone going deeper into meditative techniques should have an experienced teacher/guide, because the experiences can be
profound and need to be explained and understood. It is also known that continued meditation brings one to deeper and deeper states, and that
discontinuation of this meditation will make the experiences and residuals subside after time. This is why there are intense meditation schedules for
those who wish to go very far. Understanding what you're doing and being open are paramount.
There is a case of the XIV Dalai Lama describing an old Tibetan woman who he met in a small village who was able to produce water from thin air (I'm
not talking about condensation either). She held her hands together and was able to create a flow of water using her hands. Others describe seeing
Tibetan monks and lamas deep in the Himalayas who are able to levitate and fly.
So, there may be something to this for the diligent meditator. I don't mean to demean what AlienAgenda has provided by calling it the
brain technique, but it immediately reminded me of the game. Red,
Blue, Green, Yellow...
I shall endeavor to try it, and will keep a log of my experiences. I will post any significant experiences, natch.
