Chanting is a way of getting in touch with yourself. It’s an opening of the heart and letting go of the mind and thoughts. It deepens the channel of grace, and it’s a way of being present in the moment. ~ Krishna Das
Chanting is highly sensory and causes our energetic vibration to rise to a higher frequency. Every cell, organ, and tissue in our bodies has its own vibration and since the beginning of time, sound has been used to create harmony and balance within ourselves and our environment. Everything in the universe has a vibration and a frequency. Everything that we think and feel causes our brain to emit waves of vibrations that create a sound. The frequency of this sound cannot be heard by humans but emits a frequency that makes the resonant energy of the universe align with us. These frequencies are the very things that create our reality.
As you descend into the heart and substance of the Earth, you will find Spirit alive and shining, waiting to assist you in your conscious upliftment. The gift of a connection with nature is the ability to communicate with and benefit from the great wisdom that awaits you there and to awaken yourself through that communion to a new level of being. ~ Brooke Medicine Eagle, The Last Ghost Dance
The power of the earth is unparalleled. For the past twenty years of my life I have been integrating the awareness of the Toltec path with the beauty of the sweat lodge space or temazcal as it is known in Latin American countries. The essential components of the sweat lodge are the four elements; earth, water, air, and fire. The essential components of the Toltec path are shifting the assemblage point from its fixated position in order to connect with intent and perceive in a new and more authentic manner. The joining of these two beautiful paths creates a bridge and the ability to connect with emptiness, silent knowledge, intent, the infinite mystery and the awesome awareness of the earth.
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.
