Do you feel stuck? Does it feel like you are missing something important? Maybe you are just awakening and realizing there’s more to life. It’s a sign you are awakening…
Stuck in Your Own Head
Do you have a lot of nagging questions running through your head? Do you feel like you are missing something important, but you just can’t see it? Does your vision seem obscured? Is it like seeing life through a dark veil? This is a sign.
Do you find yourself caught up in memories? Are you constantly rerunning the past looking for clues? Do you feel more lonely in a crowd of people than when you are alone? Are you drawn to the unknown? Are you terrified by the implications of being alone in the Universe?
These questions are all good signs. They are common questions for someone in the awakening process. You realize you are stuck in your own head and need to find the backdoor. Some people never realize this important aspect of life. Yes, these are messages that you are awakening.
Seeing Life Through a Dark Veil
Most people are born with access to only the default modes of consciousness, waking, dreaming, and sleeping. Those who we call gifted are our natural Shaman, Seers, and Witches. They help us to move beyond the confines of the default mode.
The dream state is proof that non-ordinary reality exists, but most people ignore this important clue. It’s almost like someone doesn’t want us to explore or investigate our awareness.
We are born with the limited default mode of consciousness. It gives us time to grow and prepare, but it is like seeing life through a dark veil. The limits of human design limit us until we are ready for other realms of non-ordinary reality. Our true capability is much greater. ― Guru Tua
Many spiritual teachers refer to the above feelings as the call of the inner quest. It means you are ready to awaken. You won’t find the answers to these questions in religion. However, the answers are within your grasp. They within your awareness, and your consciousness.
We do not exist between our ears. You don’t have to stay stuck in your own head. Our consciousness is unlimited by space or time. We can develop our awareness and access to higher states of consciousness.
Everyone has their way of awakening. We have unique spiritual gifts and we are on different timetables. Awakening is a process. We of accessing the spiritual gifts are sleeping in our DNA. When we open them, it sets our spiritual walk into motion. It opens our minds to new potentials.
Accessing these gifts was the central goal of many ancient cultures. We enjoy the benefits of generations of research. The results are a set of powerful tools anyone can use. We call these tools spiritual technologies. These are sound methods for expanding awareness and exploring consciousness.
These tools stand up to the test of science. They are repeatable experiential phenomena. And, higher states of awareness also have unique measurable physiological signatures. They differ from waking, sleeping, and dreaming.
You do not need to follow a religion to use these tools. All you need to do is follow the process. For the most part, these tools come from Eastern traditions. Their focus is on exploring consciousness and developing human potential.
You will find this eclectic in other systems. For example, Gurdjieff’s approach was to adopt what is already proven to be effective. After all, human physiology hasn’t changed in thousands of years. So, the work of the ancient pioneers stands the test of time.
Spiritual technologies are tools for exploring consciousness. They result from generations of research by cultures around the world. These processes stand up to the test of science. They are repeatable and measurable. Everyone who can follow a process can use these tools. We call the practice of these processes spiritual exploration
You can list these tools in several ways. Some fall into more than one group. We like this simple method of grouping.
Next, a research tool we call Comparative analysis
. This is a process to help us explore and compare belief systems. This process is a scientific process form of comparative religious studies. Together these analytical tools give a solid foundation of common sense thinking. They sharpen your ability to discern facts from fiction
Seated meditation is the heart of most spiritual practices. This includes a wide range of meditation techniques. It starts with Beginning Meditation
and Mindfulness Meditation.
It progresses to more advanced forms like Japa Meditation the Siddhis of Patanjali.
This is another foundational element that strengthens the mind-body connection. Moving meditation
is also to our health and wellness. This progression includes several methods of energy collection. Here we teach Forest Bathing
, Qigong, and Tai Chi.
Healing practices are the last group. This branch includes Pe Jet, Reiki, and Shiatsu. Self-care
is an important element of this group. It is vital for normalizing our inner work and maintaining our health and wellness.
As we awaken, we see how our experience of life has been blurred or obscured. We have been missing a lot. We have been seeing life through a filter like a dark veil. Now, it is time to remove the veil and awaken to a more full experience of reality. You don’t have to stay stuck in your own head, living in the default mode.
