The world can be said to be composed of 2 things – flow of attention and vibration of the medium (which gets progressively more dense).
In our energy physiology that flow of attention curving back on itself shows up as the energy channels (nadis) and plexuses (chakras) that underlies our physical form. The flow of energy is given vibratory signals and signatures that add qualities and specifics. I spoke about the call and response process in a prior article. I’ve also spoken of chakra databanks.
These signals can be read various ways. For example: as light, as movement, as structure. Not to mention with the senses, intuition, bodily, and so forth.
Some of those signals are also broadcast to those around us and read, mostly subconsciously. Unskilled, we may be buffeted by what we’re sensing – however we’re digesting it. We sense food, information, other people, and the environment in general. We then add to that signal by how we respond. Most of this happens automatically, outside our awareness.
All of that adds to the energy signature we’re carrying and broadcasting. Rose Rosetree has recently written on energetic presence and auric modeling.
This points to one of the values of meditation. With an effortless mantra meditation, an appropriate mantra (sound) will soothe agitation and allow the release of resistance. Our flow of attention is on a harmonious vibration.
In other words, not only is it a vehicle for transcendence, it also helps clear the path on the way.
This is why your practice should be chosen well and taught properly. While the differences in practices may seem small, the distinctions and benefits amplify over time. The mantra in particular.
You can also supplement that with more targeted healing to more directly resolve larger issues.
Key here is not to develop an attitude that certain foods are bad or types of people should be avoided, and so forth. That just develops aversion. Rather, we want to make ourselves strong so we’re not buffeted by random things around us. This means good techniques and skills.
Ironically, the cleaner our signal is, the more power it gains because the noise stops dissipating it and it ceases to be a barrier for presence itself to shine through.
