Overcoming Blockages with Relaxation and Guided Imagery

If you are experiencing blockages of any kind, the easiest way to overcome them is through a process of relaxation or through guided imagery. The cause of the majority of ailments that beset humankind lies in an energy circumstance of which the emotional mental condition is but a result. This is because all of our health problems are related to a separation from our Higher Self, and some form of stress or stressful situation usually causes this separation. In turn, this separation causes blockages in the energy flow and sets up negative imprints and patterns that show themselves through our behaviour and interaction with others. If we are not able to heal ourselves at the emotional and mental level, eventually disease will prevail in the body. Relaxation Therapy works very intuitively and assists in bringing the four-fold body system back into balance.

Relaxation Therapy can help with very definite techniques for relaxing the physical body rapidly. One form of relaxation that can be accomplished very easily by anyone is guided imagery. Guided imagery can also be used to reduce stress. By imagery I mean not only pictorial imagery, but auditory, olfactory, tactile and kinaesthetic images as well. Don’t get hung up on the fact that you don’t “see” well. We all know how certain smells can provoke certain images. Anyone can overcome a resistance to imagery by informing the right brain that it’s okay to use your imagination like you did when you were a child, like when you imagined the dot on the wall was a big hairy spider. If the inner eye part of you is relatively unknown to you, do not be deterred. There is a very good chance, that with the practice of certain guided imagery, it will rapidly emerge. Guided imagery can also be used very successfully as a relaxation technique. Relaxation has healing benefits and can easily be learned through the guided imagery technique.

For those who are interested in exploring Inner Child work, the nature of guided imagery is extremely beneficial. We do not grow out of childhood; we grow up around it. Therefore a part of us is, and ever shall be, the little child that we were; and even in this category, there are a number of variations associated with the Inner Child that need exploration and explanation; and if we are willing to observe ourselves, we can see this Inner Child in action many times a day. When you have a disagreement with someone, it is usually your 5 or 6 year old Inner Child that is doing the disagreeing, not the adult you.

The Inner Child then, is a very real verifiable and valuable part of us. It is involved more with the feeling side, than the thinking side, because it originated during that period of development when we were capable of feeling more than thinking. It is the subconscious storehouse of our most joyful moments and sometimes our most unbearable anguish or pain.

Guided Imagery can assist in releasing and healing inner hurt and pain. It involves an inner journey that takes you through experiences from the physical plane which involves looking at acceptance of the current personality and then the changes that need to be accomplished and the states of consciousness that need to be changed in order to allow a descension of higher energies. The journey progresses and the next steps relate to the release of impediments at the emotional/mental level and the connection with the sub-personality or sub-personalities.

Further steps involve meeting and activating your masculine and feminine sides, and activating the pranic tube. The final steps involve preparation for meeting the deeper aspects of the inner you, commonly termed the Higher Self, the Inner Self, the Master Within, the Inner Teacher or the Energy Parent, and the responsibility that entails.

We live in a time when stress is running rampant on our planet. No one escapes, but it just depends on how you handle it as to whether it will affect you adversely or not. Most people who meditate and use a specific guided imagery technique learn to handle their stress adequately, but sometimes extra support is needed at the deeper levels. This is when meditation can be of tremendous benefit. It helps to clear aspects from all levels of the four-fold body structure, and bring back balance and harmony to daily living. So you can overcome blockages with relaxation and guided imagery to assist the body back into balance mentally, emotionally and physically.

An easy way to experience guided imagery is through fairy tales. You simply pick a favourite fairy tale such as Beauty and the Beast, Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow White, and so on. Read through the fairy tale, and then imagine you are the main character in the tale, and go ahead and let your imagination take you on a guided imagery quest. You may be surprised at what will be revealed to you, and how your tension and stress melt away.






Fae and Elven Spell Boxes

These delightful boxes have been created especially for those who wish to interact with fairies, elves, mermaids, unirorns and so on. Occasionally the word fae describes any magical being, including hobgoblins or gnomes: at other times, the word only depicts a particular sort of more supernal being or sprite. Folklore traditions refer to them by such names names as the wee folk, good folk, people of peace, fair folk, and so forth. While in modern society they’re frequently depicted as young, some of the times winged, humanlike, initially, the were described really differently: tall, beaming, angelic beings or short stubby gnomes. Fairies are broadly described as human in appearance, and are about 6″ tall. They do have magical ability, but their roots are less clear in folklore.

Each one of these spell boxes is unique and has been especially handcrafted and acts as a portal to attract those beings who wish to connect with humanity.These beings exist in the astral realms and have much to teach us about magic and other forms of meditation. The boxes contain, crystals and semi precious stones, black rose oil, and a powerful spell of protection.



The Answer to Stress is Meditation

Some people tend to consider meditation like a magic wand thinking that they can wave it in the air and all tension and stress will disappear from their lives. So they wave it a few times and when they consider that it doesn’t work—they give up. Such a pity! Because the answer to stress is meditation. Humankind simply hasn’t learnt to use the magic wand correctly. Like any stage magician using a magic wand—which is really only another technique—it takes a reasonable amount of time and practice to become proficient. For meditation to be truly effective the best time is either early in the morning just before the sun rises so that you tap into the energies of the planet as they rise to make a new day or just at sunset or sometime after, or before retiring. Any time during the day is really fine and you will soon learn to be in a meditative state even when going about your daily business, as the effects tend to be cumulative.

You will find that if you approach meditation positively and with a loving attitude it will be something to look forward to and not merely a chore to bring about relief. Then you will find that you will begin to look forward to your meditation periods and you will develop the necessary patience and persistence for success. t is not necessary to meditate for lengthy periods of time. For the average person, ten minutes, two to three times a day will give you beneficial results. Of course, if you would like to spend more time, you may get greater benefits.

There are many techniques available to bring about a state of relaxation, so choose one that suits your time and one that appeals to you. If you force yourself to do something that you do not like to do, it will only produce more tension, and you may end up with frustration added to your stress. The more you meditate, the more you will achieve inner balance and harmony which will eventually lead to a beautiful feeling of peace throughout your day. Yes, the answer to stress is meditation. After some time of practice, your physical stress levels will diminish considerably, your emotional body will feel more in balance with everyday living and your mental body will begin to look at life with a more positive outlook.

Once the tensions and stresses affecting your life begin to melt away, you will find that both your nervous system and your digestive system begin to improve, toxins will be able to escape from your body more readily, and your energy levels will rise, allowing a more healthy and vital outlook on life. Meditation can be considered the panacea for all minor ills, tensions, worries, fears and distress in your life. As you become accustomed to the regular routine of daily meditation, you will begin to seek to understand further the mysteries of life.

The ancients gave the dictum, “Man Know Thyself.” How does one get to know the self? Pathways to Self Mastery Meditation Programs contain many excellent meditation exercises to assist with stress relief as well as allowing one to walk a metaphysical path. The Programs embrace a teaching that provides the techniques for accomplishing this inward focus and experience. All techniques are practical and demonstrable in daily living, and the travel upon this path opens doorways and portals to new dimensions within the self. eBooks to assist can be found here. 




Being Centered in the heart

Most Westerners are centered in the head, they think and analyze everything. Those who have a lot of watery element in their make-up tend to be more heart centered. In actual fact there needs to be a balance between the head and the heart, but before that can happen, the heart, the feeling nature, needs to be more consciously developed. An easy way to do this is to ask yourself how you feel about everything. If you touch someone and the touch feels cold or you don’t get a response don’t analyze why this is so, ask yourself how it feels. Did you feel a closing off, a deadness, a wall between you?

If, on the other hand, you touch someone and you feel a soft warmth, a melding, a sharing of the energy, you will know that the person is very resonant with your energies and probably comes from the heart. Another way to develop this sense is to listen to music and get into the feeling of it. How does it make you feel? Does it lift you up? Does it make you feel depressed? Does it jangle on your nerves? Does it make you feel peaceful? Does it bring feelings of joy and happiness?

Listen only to music that provokes positive uplifting feelings and as you immerse yourself in the music, you will find that you become the music—it starts to live through you; you will find that you can ride on the melody—it will put you into an altered state and you will begin to perceive the notes as geometrical shapes that move in and out of you. You can, if you wish use this as a form of moving meditation; it is not meditation—it is merely a technique. Many are deceived into believing that they are heart-oriented people, but believing and actually acting out of compassion and love are two different things. The prayer of St. Francis of Assisi brings this point home quite dramatically:

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; Where there is sadness, joy; O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; 
to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; 
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

So you may well ask, how do I do this? I don’t live in a monastery; I am caught up in the stress of modern day living. The heart is not just a physical organ. It is a powerful centre, an instrument of transformation and has powers that humankind has barely begun to understand. With the head centre, it is connected directly to the Logos of this planet. The Master understood this two thousand years ago, when he took the sufferings of the world into His own heart. But you can do this too; in a state of peaceful meditation, breathe in all the sufferings of the world into your own heart, the heart will immediately transform this into the opposite polarity so that when you breathe out, you will breathe out joy, gratitude, happiness. Once you have learned that your heart is a powerful organ of transformation, and you do this every day, we will be one step closer to bringing peace and happiness back to our beautiful planet.



Whisperings from the Command

How is something caused into existence where it did not exist before? The subject of creation has proven to be greatly vulnerable to distortion. The teaching of this College shows clearly the commanded emergence of energy into matter and its required evolvement into form, ultimately involving consciousness, awareness, intellect and understanding. It is shown clearly how this planet came into existence and the reason for its functioning. The requirement to project a physical manifestation causes a Logos to gather together energy or primal matter, and in this gathering together is inherent the required degree of intelligence needed to carry out the projection. The gathering together causes a depressed intensity in the surrounding areas in the universal sense. This then gives rise to an automatic projection: this projection from the planetary Logos is part of the planetary trinity principle.

The pattern follows; that force, which emanates from that which is the Logos, centres itself and then attracts primal energy, and so, becomes a force centre with the ability to project of itself. The principle applies then to the next projection, and the next projection and also, to the next projection. As the projections go forward, or project outwardly, each projection is less in intensity. In other words, that which is the projecting force may not project something that is greater than itself. If you understand that, then, of course, you will understand that it must diminish, diminish, diminish as each projection goes forward.

Remember the command which, as the Logos formed and became a planet, was, “Go thou forth and proliferate – you will project, you will proliferate.”

So, from the Logos is a spawning; a projection, then a series of projections. Remember that the solar body, (the planets forming the solar body in all its complexity – and it is not simple) is a oneness. Therefore that which ultimately becomes humankind is only one projection of many, many, many from the Logos. It spawns, and you must remember that each spawning has its direct application to the purpose of its being spawned. In other words, the word function enters very sharply into this matter, and each projection has a function. This Logos as an energy projection, in itself, influences all other parts, including its parental Source, the Logos of this overall solar system.

Among these many spawnings from the Logos is one which is required to become material – it projects from the Logos; that projection or child then begins to project, and energy then begins to step down and become matter. There was no planet Earth with an incoming Logos; there was pure space. This planet Earth is the Logos. Therefore, many eons back, in what you term time, came the force centre and it spawned, allegorically, a child amongst others, and that child began to project and step the energy down until it was dense enough to manifest as matter. So, then you had the beginning of a physically observable planet Earth.

Humankind is, of course, the ultimate physical projection from the planetary Logos. The ultimate requirement has been fulfilled that was embodied in the force that was and is the command – “Go thou forth and proliferate.”

Further information on such interesting subjects is only available through the Sirian Mystery School, a division of the College of Esoteric Education. Because universal concepts are difficult to understand, much of the teaching is explained through analogy and allegory.




Supernatural Men and Women

While most of the world is in upheaval, there are a few who looking forward to the dawn of the new cycle. The Ancient Ones have said peace would reign throughout the world and economic conditions will improve with a fresh start. Metaphysicians who have been watching the trend of circumstances in the world and who know the periods of human evolution are looking forward to the dawn of this new cycle when the coming supernatural men and women will pass from childhood to adulthood. Some of them are on the planet now.

The day of their arrival is close at hand, and already these young, supernatural people in many parts of the world are beginning to express their new power and unique understanding and so can assist the ailing humanity. No longer will greedy governments be tolerated, or unfair advantages be given to the elect. The young ones have an agenda for the prosperity of this beautiful planet and are making preparations for a united usurping of the dominating negative forces of life.

The supernatural beings of the near future will be those who have leadership already within their grasp. They will control not only their own destinies through meditation, but will assist others to do the same. There will be no tyrannical autocracy connected with this worldwide phenomena, and there will be no unreasonable display of superiority. People will find rather, a mighty and powerful, though sympathetic and peaceful, direction and control of the world activities that are now crippling our economy.

The supernatural men and women of each cycle and age have been the result of the progress of civilization as well as the development of the inner selves of those who wish to serve humanity outwardly. In each cycle of the world’s history, these supernatural beings have been qualified to meet the conditions that they were to find and to govern the world as it required governing. These beings appear at the end of every cycle or sub-cycle of humanity because it is necessary to seed the incoming cycle with the fresh ideas it needs to carry forward.

In the earlier cycles of human progress the super-qualities of these specially selected men and women related to the purely intellectual abilities of the objective faculties of humanity. The men and women of those periods were those who could see, hear, or sense better the objective impressions registered upon their consciousness and interpret them regarding adaptability relative to our planet. These beings were inspired by their Higher Selves, angelic beings, Ascended Masters or extra-planetary beings.

Then came the cycle of supernatural individuals who turned their vision inwardly rather than outwardly and saw the weaknesses of the inner self and the need for cultural improvement, and adaptability. These beings often worked tirelessly and behind the scenes. Then followed the development of man’s egoism. As it often happens, this resulted in self-aggrandizement and the desire to surround oneself with every cultural luxury and comfort. People couldn’t help comparing themselves to others or were worried about what the neighbours would think. This led to a lot of unkindness developing in humanity.

The next cycle brought the desire for conquest as a natural result of man’s desire to make his personal name and fame paramount above everything else.

However, in this phase of evolution new lands were discovered, new cities built, new empires established, and this was in accordance with the plan for humanity though the people knew it not.

We have just finished a major sub-cycle where a human’s vision has been turned toward intellectual attainment and technological and scientific knowledge so that he might take from others that which they possessed but didn’t know how to protect. Certain elements of humanity thereby monopolized and controlled solely through objective intellectual power the things that belonged to humanity at large.

The inevitable result of such a cycle was that of self-destruction, since the power of greed that entered into the plans of those who were leaders in this last sub-cycle, destroyed itself and destroyed those who were instruments of its activities. The plan for humanity saw that in all of the greedy things that man accomplished during the past cycle there should be a residue of results that will benefit everyone when properly directed and controlled by the new period of super beings to follow.

And now we are on the threshold of this new cycle when these new supernatural beings are about ready to come into their own, and reconstruct the toppling, quivering structures, and creations of the hordes of greed of the past sub-cycle. The Logos has seen that during the past one hundred years or more the foundation should be laid for the great transfer of human control and human direction. Men and women in all lands and all sections of every state and nation have been gradually prepared and carefully inspired during the past fifty or more years for the new role and new position they or their children will occupy within the next few years.

The unlimited power of wealth and control of business and economic conditions will be taken from the hands of the greedy and selfish and transferred to the hands of those who are altruistic and sympathetic.

The new cycle of beings now reaching maturity have had their vision turned from the narrow, personal viewpoint, to the broad, universal horizon of international humanity. Their education and training have been along the lines of universal comprehension and philosophical understanding with the sympathetic appreciation of the needs of all men, women, and children, and with a desire to see mercy and justice made manifest in every walk of life.

Once again we will see the rise of the supernatural man and woman of the new cycle. The bigotry of religions, the tyranny of nationalism, the selfishness of economic standards have been supplanted by a broader viewpoint and a newer and better attunement with human existence.
