You’re thinking that the double is what the word says; a double, or another you. I chose those words in order to describe it. The double is oneself and cannot be faced in any other way. – Don Juan, Tales of Power
When we exist in a state of balance, life-force energy moves through our bodies easily and unobstructed but when we are in states of imbalance, the energy within our chakras, the wheels of energy that reside within our bodies, become blocked which prevents us from vibrating in alignment with the universal life-force around us.
When one enters into a state of dream, or second attention, the double, also known as the astral body is accessed. It is when we enter into stillness and silence that we are able to make this connection, allowing us to see and become aware of the things that prevent us from moving forward with discovering or fully living our life’s purpose. When we become aligned with our double we become open to the energies that are essential for both effective action and manifestation of our goals and dreams because it is here that we are immersed within the entire body of conscious energy to which we are all directly connected. When we are able to focus our attention in this realm of existence we discover that our thoughts begin to take form. We are now aware that the entire creation of the cosmos is an act of creation and that we, ourselves, are creators.
Our double is pure, untainted by the illusory constructs in our physical lives and exists beyond space time. It is the ultimate teacher for each of us, it helps us remember. When we are able to gain enough energy we are able to access it and it will teach us when we are open to receive. When accessing our double, it is important to become a conduit, a hollow bone, or the empty vessel through which life-force energy can move freely. When this occurs the simplest maneuver of being in the breath allows us to maintain a healthy state of being as we are then able to become balanced with that ethereal part of being. Each and every cell in our body relies on pure life-force energy so we can revert to and then sustain our optimal state of health and well-being through our connection with our double.
When we allow ourselves to become still, we are able to gather the necessary energy to know ourselves more fully, specifically as a creative force within an extensive energy field of creative forces. This knowledge should bring about a sense of great joy which in turn releases an abundance of energy within our luminous body, which is our subtle energy body more commonly known as the aura. The double is the awareness of our state as luminous beings and can give us a boost of energy that revitalizes our entire sense of being and ultimately allows us to channel the new energy that has become available to us into beautiful acts of creation that benefits others as well as ourselves.
Over time, as our chakras become cleared and open due to the life-force energy flowing through us, the energy to which we have access is like an inexhaustible well. As we integrate our new and energized state of being that comes to us from the frequencies of the Earth and the Universe we may find that individual will becomes effortless and we function more often with ease and in a state of grace.
Connection with our double has been made. We are suddenly able to perceive in new ways. As our awareness increases, our energy increases and we become more conscious of our ability to move beyond our limited perceptions so that we can explore the vast and diverse realm of creation in order to return to our own unique and beautiful states of conscious creation.
