The Dawn Light
|A friend of ours, Sylvie, decided to attend a workshop on "dance-meditation." Soon after starting one of the movements, she began to feel unwell and stopped dancing. The teacher advised her that she needed to continue in order to "break through the barrier of her resistance"(?).
After the class, Sylvie became worse. When we saw her, she'd been experiencing nausea and a headache – in spite of medication – for several days. Sylvie showed us the "moves" she'd been taught in the class. One of them caused a dark lesion to appear in the energy over her upper abdomen and the right side of her head.
Since she liked dancing, I taught Sylvie a simple movement or "weave" that sealed the energy over her head and abdomen. She recovered before she went to sleep that night.
If Sylvie's teacher had developed her energy awareness, she would have seen that the movement was inappropriate for Sylvie. If Sylvie had developed sufficient energy awareness, she would have immediately seen that the movement was no good for her – or for many other people.
Imagine your awareness as a television that, potentially, can receive 30 channels.
Channel 1 is called, "Awareness of this Physical World" (aka APW). You have a lot of attention dedicated to this channel so you are well-"tuned-in" to the physical world. Consequently, you are good at avoiding vehicles when crossing the street, eating food rather than breaking your teeth on rocks and generally dealing with the reality that you perceive.
However, your body and mind are also being affected by energies that can only be perceived by tuning into other channels. Since almost all your attention is dedicated to channel 1 (APW), you are largely unaware of other, energetic "streets" or "vehicles," "foods" or "rocks" or anything else that is affecting you and your life, but is outside the range of APW.
Many popular personal development techniques are intended to "wake up" one or more channels in you. Unfortunately, while method X is diverting more of your energy to channel 2 or 23, it may also be messing up your energetic "circuitry" – the circuitry that keeps your body and life functioning correctly. In other words, personal development techniques often act rather like drugs – with the usual host of possible side-effects that the doctor forgets to mention.
When an area of your internal circuitry is affected in this way, you may develop some awareness of another "channel," but become less capable, over a long period of time, in one or more areas of your life and/or health as a direct consequence of using a particular, energy-stealing technique.
Energy awareness is an invaluable asset that can dramatically increase the quality of anyone's life. However, the best way to develop your awareness of your and others' energies is to employ techniques that steadily develop your whole body's energy awareness – which prevents your being weakened or damaged in the process.
The following method is taken from our personal mentoring service, Vision*Empowerment. It helps you start developing a whole body energy awareness without misallocating any of your essential energies. It works by causing a descent of mana or "sky energy" (see Under a Positive Sky: Living in a High Energy Place) into your crown. This is then distributed throughout your body to increase the forms of awareness that you, personally, currently most need in order to deal more effectively with the conditions of your life. In other words, different people experience different benefits, each according to her needs.
Cultivating the energy awareness of your whole body isn't an easy ride. Contrary to some organizations' or individuals' claims, there is no machine, medicine, music, mantra or master that's going to catapult you into a stable state of higher awareness without considerable effort on your part. Developing a genuine higher awareness is not a lot different from developing your muscles – it takes plenty of "sweat" and, possibly, some "blood" or "tears" as well. However, as for muscle-building, there are all kinds of ways to facilitate and encourage the process. Making use of your living environment – where a multitude of energies are already affecting you day and night – is one way of going about it.
The following method – the Dawn Light – is a basic Kitai, or "Awareness Feng Shui" seal that can be practised by anyone, without having already developed any energy awareness. So it's an ideal way to start entering your own path to higher awareness.
|The Dawn Light uses some of the techniques or energetic "seals" described in our book, Hidden Secrets of Real Health. These are:
While going to sleep:
The force of your concentration on your breath is key to the success of this practice
The bedroom environment acts as a container for a form of mana (see Hidden Secrets of Real Health) that increases the flow of vitality (sexual energy) up to your crown (chakra). This flow is cultivated by the breath meditation, which you should also try to resume if you wake up during the night.
- Awareness of other peoples' energies
- Awareness of environmental energies that affect your happiness (for better or for worse), success and other fortunes
- Awareness of how your energies are affected by your actions – what you say, think, eat, do for a living, do for fun, etc.
The more you develop these forms of awareness, the more effectively you can resolve current problems, avoid future problems and create a happier and more fulfilling future
This "seal", or empowerment process, is called the "Dawn Light" because, when practised diligently, it generates a growing experience of seeing the world in a new light – as if everything you've seen before you've only half-seen . . . and everything you've believed or "known" must be reconsidered. Real energy awareness profoundly changes your view of life, the world around you and your own capabilities.
If you wish to practice the Dawn Light empowerment, but you have a problem with one or other of the requirements (eg. there's only one door between your bedroom and the toilet), we may be able to help you remedy it.
