Be Metaphysical: Lessons of Lapis Lazuli

I felt the need to go into some meditation and search for a few answers to questions I have been pondering on. I grabbed 3 of my Lapis Lazuli and 1 quartz pointer.

Being in a relaxed state of mind and body helps you withdraw from the 5 senses. Once you are able to withdraw from your 5 senses you can begin becoming aware of metaphysical senses and sensations.

3 Tumbled Lapis Lazuli and a Quartz Pointer aimed at my root chakra

I Sat down in comfortable pose and put two of the lapis in my hip/lap area. I placed  the quartz pointer in between my legs  with a lapis piece in front of it  (picture below)

Yoga is a great way to prepare your body for relaxation. Being comfortable is key to withdrawing from your physical senses and retaining a conscious state of mind

I began Ujjayi method of breathing as a normally begin most of my meditations.  I took time to cycle through each Chakra using the planetary system. After going through about 5 cycles  I focused on breathe and the darkness of having my eyes closed.            There are a few things I had on my mind the main thing that I will focus on here is visions/3rd eye activity. Randomly more memories of  The Journey I went on came back to me. I totally forgot about the big white house/temple/structure that was at the end of the labyrinth. I feel like there was information inside of the structure.  I also began to fly above the labyrinth because I did not want to be lost… moving on. For those who can relate and have similar experiences feel free to express your knowledge on what you have concluded. For those who are not familiar then just enjoy the read and one day you may be able to relate. Im sharing what I experience and learn in effort to help you on your path to inner-lightnment.

Lesson one: The Basics

So if you concentrate on the darkness (eyes closed) while rhythmic breathing, you may begin to see a light forming . To get an example of what this internal light looks like, look at a light bulb for 5 seconds then close your eyes. You will see a imprint of the bulb when you close your eyes. This is what the light looks like at first. Now continuing with the light bulb effect example in mind imagine if the light you see when you close your eyes begins to collect more light. This will appear as waves in a ocean coming onto the sand. The internal circle of light being the sand and the new waves being more light. The internal light is a circle so the waves appear to be forming into the circle of light.   Its like drawing a circle in the sand and then using your hands to push the surrounding sand  into the circle making it larger then continuing to do this over and over. This is the basic behavior or characteristics of what I believe to be pineal gland activity.  I think identifying  and becoming familiar with these sensations/signs will help people get a full easy understanding of the abilities dormant within.

L1: Yoga,  Breathe awareness, Chakra cycles , Pineal Focus.

Lesson Two: Seeing is Believing 

Ok so I wanted to understand how exactly I was able to perceive and experience places that I have not been to physically leading to wisdom that seems more cosmic than terrestrial. The answer came to me in a simple clear explanation that I will try to translate here. Ok imagine having a sphere able to go anywhere in the world. This sphere can feel/absorb light. The sphere has the ability to see light but does not have  the missing piece to translate the light into mental images similar to the human eye balls.

Mudras are also a great way to draw lines in the sand of attention. While meditating from time to time try to feel the way your hands are situated. It may not be as easy as you think

Now lets add the pieces of the puzzle together. The sphere is your astral/energy body. The missing piece that can translate light into tangible mental images creating vision… is your pineal gland/third eye.

Have you heard of Astral projection?

L2: Vision Awareness, Experience, Understanding

I just broke down how to leave Earth and experience other planets/beings, now open your eye and go feel/see for yourself.

Lesson Three: Only observe, If you feel uncertain about what you see then do not go forward. The choice to interact and explore ultimately is yours. You may find there are protected places you will not be able to go to as I have learned.

“These places are only a thought away.”

Notes: I used Lapis Lazuli in assistance of Quartz because this combination  brings me  to a state of mind where clear, sharp, efficient, honest  smart thinking happens.

Focusing or looking for the inner light helps the process of it revealing itself. The first time I experienced this  my eyes were closed and it felt as if suddenly I had opened my eyes but my physical eyes were still closed. The feeling was very interesting and I understood what happened because I could feel it which led me to know.  Through practice and meditation the familiarity of these sensations becomes a stepping stone to going deeper within. For a more detailed instructional or advice contact me i’m more than willing to help!

Speed Reading 101

Whether you’re hitting the textbooks in philosophy class, reading long-winded emails from co-workers, or just reading the morning newspaper, chances are at one time or another you’ve wished you could read a little faster. Here are a few tips to help quicken your read! 

Time your current reading speed. Not only will timing help you to tell if you’re improving, but it will also keep you motivated.

Get rid of distractions. Even if you think you read better when you have music playing or when you’re in a crowded coffee house, you can probably increase your speed if you reduce distractions to a bare minimum. 

Adjust reading speed depending on the material. Often, we must trade off comprehension for speed, so an important part of increasing reading speed is deciding how thoroughly you need to comprehend a particular piece of writing. So before you even start reading, decide how fast you intend to go.

Learn to separate the wheat from the chaff with pre-reading. No matter what you are reading, there is frequently a lot of “filler” that you can read quickly through or even skim over. With practice, you will be able to identify the most important parts of a book as you skim through it. When you get to such a passage, slow down.

Train yourself not to reread. Most people frequently stop and skip back to words or sentences they just read to try to make sure they understood the meaning. This is usually unnecessary, but it can easily become a habit, and many times you will not even notice you’re doing it.
