Namaste my friends, what I often notice is that a lot if people, especially people that are new in spiritual work, start practicing but get really demotivated or even stop practicing spiritual work, because they seem not to be making progress. Me for myself had the same situation in the beginning. I just got into spiritual work and wanted to learn channeling and astral projection before I even knew the basics.
The basics you should learn before you start doing anything else are:
- Feeling energies
- Raising energies
- Chakra activation
These are the six I think most important steps. Before I start talking about feeling energies, I want to say that these is my view on spiritual work and the best way how I experienced it. I there are also a lot of different ways to reach your goals, so use this to collect ideas but don´t base your entire path on this. So now I´ll start.
The most fundamental thing in spiritual work is to be able to feel the energies around you and later to tap into the flow of energy. But to tap into the flow of energy you should know how to feel or see it. Seeing energies is a very awesome skill, but it´s not that important that it should be a basic. What I highly recommend is learning how to feel energy. To be able to feel energies instantly I used 3 steps.
1.Feeling energies in other lifeforms, it could be the family dog/cat, an plant or an other person. What I did was I sat down with my best friend and held my hand over his.
In the beginning I wasn´t sure how its going to feel like, I often read about a lot of people that say energy feels like warmth to them, but actually how I experience energy is a tingling sensation on my skin. I am not saying energy doesen´t feel like heat, I am telling you how it feels like to me. So sit down with the person, animal or plant you have chosen close your eyes while holding your hand close the him/her/it or you can also touch him/her/it.
Focus on that hand and focus on how that hand feels like, if you start feeling a tingling sensation, congrats you just felt energy.
- Feeling energy in your self. Why didn´t I take this as the first step? The answer is actually pretty simple. First I had to know how energies feel like, because when you feel into your body you can get all sorts of biological signals. This way you know what energies feel like before your own body signals can confuse you.
So what I like to do when I am feeling my energies is, I focus my whole conciseness on one body part usually my right hand. I concentrate on how my hand feels like and focus all my energy on my right hand. Normally the more energy I focus on my handthe more tingly my hand feels. Kinda how it feels when your hand is tingling when it fell asleep and your blood is pumping in your hand again.
- Feeling energies in crystals. Crystals are like an energy hard-drive you can save energies in them or gain energies out of them. For me feeling energies in a crystal was the hardest part. Take the crystal in your hand and do the same thing you did when you wanted to feel energy in step one.
When you have learned to do that, you just achieved part one of six.
Remember you have the energies of the whole universe. You just have to learn to tap into flow of energy. If you imagine the energies as a river, then imagine your self as a diver, you dive into the river of energy and how good you can swim is up to you. Practice practice practice.
In the second I will talk about visualization, and share some of my experiences, and give you some good and effective ways to master visualization.
With the best intentions, light and love.
