As background, I actually believe much of what is in my books and blogs is channeled. I can always tell something is coming via channel because I get a feeling of pressure in my ears and a persistent thought starts pushing in my brain until I sit down and write it. A few times, sitting down and writing it took several days with only sleeping, eating, and basic personal care until I had written a whole book. I'm sure my family and dogs love it when that happens.
Anyway - that occurred this afternoon, and when I was done, I had a meditation. I sent it to my student, but I also want to share it with you because it may help others as well.
*Begin channeled information*
You dread the density that is part of being embodied. That’s why you’re feeling resistant to grounding. It’s because Earth energy is dense, sticky, and slow moving, and the body is dense and vibrates slowly as well, and you desire only high vibrations and lightness. You feel the density holds you down and keeps you from realizing your true potential.
To understand that even in a body, and even grounded, and even on Earth, you are not as dense as you believe, you are to listen to the space between the breaths as a meditation. When you focus on breath, notice the space that is neither breathing in nor breathing out. Focus on those spaces and see how vast they really are. Notice that even in those spaces which are neither inhale nor exhale, you are there, and it’s vast and wide open. Home is in those spaces. Your essence is in those spaces. So while you feel “confined” in a body, you carry Home inside of you in those spaces that are neither inhale nor exhale. You are in a body but not of the body, but the breaths can’t exist without the spaces and the spaces can’t exist without the breaths as long as you are embodied.
From there, you can start to notice other spaces. For example, start with your heart. Notice the space that is your heart, but notice the space that is not your heart: the space inside of it, the space outside of it, the space in the muscle and outside of the muscle, the space in the blood and outside of the blood, the space in the vessels and outside of the vessels, and then the space all around it. Shift your focus back and forth – the space that is physical you, and the space that isn’t physical you but is still part of you. Notice how much space there truly is and how little matter there truly is. You can do this with any part of your physical body. With a hand, a foot, an ear, your nose, your liver…it goes on.
You can do it with pain. Pain, no pain. Notice where the pain is. Notice the spaces and gaps in the pain. Notice where the pain isn’t. Notice the pain’s edges: where it begins and ends. Where it intensifies and fades. Notice the pain is mostly empty space with vast distances between points of pain. Notice where the pain dissolves into NO SPACE until it is no longer there at all.
You can even do it with a thought or belief. Notice the edges of the belief or thought. Notice the vast open spaces it contains. Notice how the thought doesn’t have a sharp edge, but rather fades away particle by particle until there is a lingering of tiny bits of that belief. Notice how the thought dissolves into NO SPACE until it’s no longer there.
As you do this--notice the spaces and shift from the space of matter to the space of NO SPACE--you’ll realize that while part of you dwells in the dense and physical, you aren’t trapped here. The dense and physical is your partner and your vehicle, much like your car. It helps you to accomplish what you came here to do so you need to care for it and maintain it, but you can always, even embodied, return to the spaces between to experience the NO SPACE that is home. Ground after each such meditation and carry the knowledge you gained with you as you go about your day. You still need to partner with your body so you can do what you came here to do.
