Meditating in the other direction

in occult •  9 months ago

I often meditate towards a state of inner peace. Where I can hear the comfort throb of my heart as blood is pushed by my ears. Where my breath is the most powerful force my mind takes note of. Over the years I've adapted to focus on using a "whiteboard" to appear in this quiet place so that my subconscious (and maybe universal unconsciousness?) can speak to me without my ego freaking out.

While this is a fantastic practice that will become sacred and beautiful to you specifically once you discover it (assuming you haven't yet), I'm now inspired to go the other direction.

What if I could excite my brain? As in turn it as tumultuous as I can conceive? What state of consciousness are in this hyped-up state that I've yet to have even considered?

Also, reaching the quiet place is like an asymptotic curve to me. Getting quiet is like the negative curve shown on the below graft. As I move towards zero I can go deeper and deeper into my mind, but it will become increasingly difficult at an exponential rate.

Is this how exciting my brain will be? Will I be able to excite my mind to a grand state but it becomes exponentially difficult to progress?

So my plan is this... I'm going to listen to some "system of a down" that moves me. I'm going to assume a half lotus. From there I will begin "bringing fire into my belly" by using the most powerful pranayama technique that I've ever tried. Once I've achieved this state, I plan to "grasp the tail of a dragon" meaning lock onto a feeling of ecstasy produced by my emotional response to the music... and not let go or stop myself.

Have you ever had a similar experience? If so please share in the comments what your goal (if any was), how you obtained it (to whatever degree), and what it was like. I look forward to reading them!

I will try this technique several times over the weekend and create another post on how it went soon.

Try it while listening to Led Zepplin's "Your Time Is Gonna Come" while visualizing the faces of Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, all Bushes, the Klintons and Oboingo... Throw in George Soros, Henry Kissinger and the Rockefellers for good measure. Open up your Pineal Gland, simultaneously as it up loud in your headphones. Let us know what happens.

Regularly. Where do I even begin?

Well, I did a post on the short and long term side effects of doing what you described doing:

And then that inspired @in2itiveart to write an interesting post on how her heart chakra got activated.

Wow. I never heard of this...

As much as I want to feel like I'm pioneering this, the law of large numbers states that someone has already. :D Maybe I'll find a good book on this. Does anyone have a good book recommendation?

Reminds me maybe a bit of ''osho - active meditation'' where participants go crazy for 15min to sit later on silent... will keep following you. Thank you for the article

A good book on... meditation techniques? Or?

a good book on... i guess... ecstatic meditation? I'm not sure what the word for it would be. I guess if I figure that out, it will be easy to find a good book :)

Look up Kundalini yoga books; I cannot recommend books on this topic since it all came intuitively to me.

If you are ever in Los Angeles and would like to do some meditations'n chill, hit me up.
