I shall be offering this evening an exercise, for it is difficult to be recognizing of alternate channels, and understanding the transmission which is occurring upon alternate channels, when you do not tune completely to the one channel that holds your attention. Your focus is blurred. You believe that your attention is directed and clear within the channel that you view; your objective attention; but you shall perceive soon just how blurred your attention truly is!
We have incorporated discussion of your outer senses, as you view them; their function and how you create them. Within this exercise, we shall be focusing upon these senses; for until you learn to tune your attention clearly, you will not understand the interaction that you may view within alternate channels. You may tune to these other channels, but they will appear even less clear and confusing to you than the channel that you are attentive to within your waking consciousness. Therefore, I shall direct you within an exercise.
I shall briefly first explain to you that just as we have spoken previously of the connections within consciousness of many individuals en masse, and how they are affecting of each other continuously, your alternate focuses are continuously affecting of your private personal expression. Within your individual pools of probabilities and alternate selves, you are continuously interacting and affecting of each other; just as the analogy was presented to you of the flower, and the color, and the greeting card. Within different areas of location and different individuals seeming to be not connected to each other, they connect within consciousness and are affecting of each other.
In this same manner, very directly and continuously, your alternate channels are continuously affecting of you. You do not recognize this affectingness, but you do, at times, recognize elements which you would view to be out of the ordinary; small activities or noticings; small; that you ignore. These are each direct affectingness of alternate probabilities and selves; your other channels. They are translated differently.
You may incorporate one channel as a housewife, and within a daily scenario, you may be engaged in a very mundane activity of dusting. Within this activity, you merrily dust your house, and approach a stand upon which sits your family bible. Within one moment, you lift this bible to dust underneath the object, replacing it and continuing with your activity. Upon another alternate channel, a religious focus program is running. The religious program has directly affected the action of lifting the book. This may seem not to be a profound affectingness, but it is a small example of the many, many, many activities and ways that each channel intersects with each other continuously, within every moment.
As I have stated, it is important that you view the one channel that holds your directed attention clearly. In this, I shall instruct you within our exercise. Within the beginning elements of this exercise, I shall be asking you to be holding your field of vision; not closing eyes; for you are tuning to this attention, this station, this channel. You are noticing and allowing clarity of this channel. Therefore, the purpose is not to be altering your state.
Allow your vision to be as clear as it may possibly be.In this, I will ask you to sit comfortably. Focus upon any given object within your room, but do not concentrate intensely upon this object. Allow for your vision to normally encompass the entirety of the room, with one main focal point. Do not strain, and do not force yourselves to be concentrating very hard upon any given object. In this, now tune your consciousness to your senses. Notice your vision. Allow your vision to be as clear as it may possibly be. Tune to your hearing. Notice all of the sounds that occur. Many sounds are occurring that you automatically tune out and pay little attention to. Notice your body; your physical feelings; your body temperature. Notice your sense of touch. The air touches your skin continuously. Your clothing touches your skin. These are all elements that are a part of the clarity of your focus, to which you pay little attention to. Notice smells. You pay little attention to your sense of smell throughout your individual, mundane day. Notice your sense of taste. You view that if you are not consuming something, you are not tasting anything. Your senses are highly tuned, and respond regardless. They incorporate continuous stimulation. You only choose to not be clear upon these senses.
Take a moment to concentrate, unstrained, upon the activity of all of these senses that you incorporate throughout every moment of your physical focus. (Here, there is a ninety second pause)
Now, I will be instructing each of you to be closing your eyes and allowing your attention to drift. Do not be focusing upon your outer senses, so to speak. Allow yourself to feel comfortable, and calm, and quiet. (Here, there is a thirty second pause) Enough drifting!
I shall be instructing you to be practicing this exercise three times within each of your daysYou will notice that with your eyes closed, you will drift. You have experienced, within your attempts at meditation at times, difficulty in holding your focus. You experience, much of your time within your dream state, an inability to hold your focus and manipulate within that focus. This exercise of tuning your directed attention, your consciousness which is tuned to this channel, will be very helpful to you in instructional areas of developing your ability to be manipulating within alternate channels. Altered states, as you term these, are all alternate channels. If you hold the ability to consciously manipulate within the consciousness that holds your attention, you will more easily learn to manipulate and understand within alternate channels of consciousness. Therefore, throughout this week, until our next meeting, I shall offer you the opportunity for what you would term to be homework! I shall be instructing you to be practicing this exercise three times within each of your days. You may incorporate this exercise at any given moment, for your eyes are open, and you are attentive to all those individuals around you and also any activity that you may be engaging, for you are tuning your consciousness more clearly. You are not drifting. You are not placing yourself into an altered state. Therefore, this exercise will not be interrupting of your normal activity.
Also, within your exercise of clarity, add to this exercise … as you are all accomplishing so very well! Within your energy centers, engage two energy centers. Mingle these energy centers as they radiate and envision these, within your clarity, moving around your body, up and down, as hoops. In this, notice your sense of touch. Notice your feeling of your skin as your energy centers radiate and move up and down your body.
In this, I shall be waiting for your descriptions of what you notice, for your noticing shall not only be a sensation of movement against your skin, up and down your body. You shall experience, if you are noticing and clear, different sensations dependent upon which energy centers you choose to be engaging, for they shall be affecting of different elements of your physical expression. These exercises are offered to you not as time consumers. They are offered to you to allow you the opportunity to be clear within your manifestation within physical focus, and be appreciating of your creative power.
