I would never be so arrogant as to assume your level of understanding, and there it is in a nutshell (box)! I am inclined to wonder if you read my post at all? I'm pretty sure the number of chakra's hasn't come up and to assume that they are limited to any number would be misleading. So in answer and in jest I see your consciousness and raise you mine
Call it what you will the essence remains the same. It is a connection to the universe, a gateway to other realms of existence. It's all labels to me. Take them away and you see as your authentic self/true nature.
This is where claircognisance came into play. It is the realisation of having access to the collective unconscious/akashic records, other planes of existence. In the wondering why you have knowledge without experience you seek out the experience to gain a greater understanding. It is all part of the journey - the journey of discernment. For me, looking into different philosophies (keys) to your true purpose, even in finding what doesn't resonate with you is also a key in your discernment. It is not blindly following another's path (the reason I don't read channelings (Dr Seus for grown ups *yawn*) but it is not for me to say that others won't find a piece of truth in it for themselves.
The key for me was exploring other avenues of energy exchange if only to realise that they all play a part in expanding our consciousness', finding out what was instinctual in me had a reality in others.
It's just a step on the path to becoming! In discerning the true nature you are discerning past the distortion and I discern what is right for me.
It matters not what planet or consciousness you resonate with because in seeking you become aware that they are all states of being/planes of existence/dimensions that we all have access to if we seek to explore. In exploring we realise we have visited these realms many, many times through our own karmic path. The point for me is that there is no spiritual hierachy other than our own.
Blessings and Love
Yes I read your post.
and I read this one too. I like the Dr Seuss comment and share your lack of reading channelings. I don't disagree with anything that you've said here and I'm sure you know that it wouldn't matter if I did. We are all grown ups here (kinda
) and your comment on discernment I think is a key understanding,especially at this point in the journey.
I don't see a need to pick apart your comments in this post,, because I have nothing to add or subtract. I don't see "you" talking, I see the creator talking and I listen.
"The point for me is that there is no spiritual hierachy other than our own".
This says mouthfuls IMO and if more people understood this than what appears to be arcane would translate itself to be common sense.
That being said, I light fires and sometimes that fire lights a fire under someones ass, sometimes it ignites a flame, sometimes it turns a watery mass into "mist" and sometimes it just annoys the fuck out of people. Either way I light fires.
as far as chakras go, I would have to say, that my personal experience would be a textbook example of how not to go about kundalini awakening. I blew a hole out of the top of my head in complete ignorance of what and how I was doing it. However,I did have an intuitive connection with why.
The reason behind my comments originally was this, After I had blown out the crown chakra with enough force to shoot snakes across the cosmos, I did a merkaba meditation of sorts without having any idea what that even was. It was all natural, completely intuitive, and I had the distinct understanding that I had done it before while it was happening.
consciousness was not focussed in my physical body except for a loose connection through the nervous system. I was experiencing through a pole in the center of my body and could literally see the chakras spinning. I could travel up and down the pole at will and nest my consciousness in each chakra. after nesting and having experiences in the lower chakras I had some kind of intuitive understanding of their spin and their rate of spin, etc. (i can't even begin to explain the experience of that type of consciousness) but at a certain chakra, possibly the heart, I intuited a gateway and had an experience likened to using the understanding I had learned in the nesting process to literally turn a key (although it was a completely psychic happening) to unlock a mechanism. After unlocking this mechanism, I traveled back down to the lower chakras and played them like a roulette wheel. I watched the spin and would consciously choose to stop at a specific place as if I was the ball on the roulette wheel. It was like a combination lock. After unlocking the lower chakras, they grw and expanded outside of my body itself and became a wheel. I could send my consciousness down the pole and stand at the center of this wheel and as the wheel spun, I could see a spinning diarama of all of my past selves and jump into "their" consciousness. I continued the process of nesting all the way to the top of my chakras and in the process of repeating this the chakras merged into three large wheels spinning. By the time all three were spinning I had a separate yet united consciousness at each point and was actually "living" or at least experiencing all of these lives simultaneously. (can't even describe that state of consciousness either)
I could chage spin directions of the wheels and all sorts of other things, but after intuitively spinning them in a certain combination. I began to disintegrate and its opposite simultaneosly and this was beyond frightening, yet I had a complete sense of trust that was wavering by the millisecond. Not only myself, but the room I was in, the people that were there and the rest of the "reality" broke down into molecular or atomic form (don't really know) and from there just became particles of light. At this point, a duality started to sweep over me, because I could no longer make anything out. There was no more room or objects or me, there was just particles and my consciousness was mine and not mine at the same time and I was fluxuating back and forth with subject object consciousness. Even though I was now thinking about not being able to "come back", I decided to trust and go for it. After this decision, the particles started to self arrange themselves and went from some sort of molecular level to spiraling into some sort of cosmos or galaxy. There was no more room that I was formerly in, no more people, just space and I now had a vector based bi locating consciousness that could focus on one singular particle and instantly zoom in and know its distance from the center and other such information. This went on for what seemed like forever, but in retrospect was about an hour. After taking in a certain amount of information, I just couldn't handle it anymore. I could tell that if I went any further that subject and object consciousness would be gone through identification with "the other side", so I quickly started loosing my trust and eventually faded back through the molecular realm and back to the room and such.
As a side note, the force that was with me guiding me the entire time was feminine.
That experience was the reason for my comments on this thread. I don't know how many people have experienced anything like that and it doesn't appear to be common knowledge -yet
Namaste to you and as far as lotus petals go, sometimes even if experienced by intuition numbers can be the key to unlocking certain combinations of "flowers" in a garden
