Enchancing Spiritual Energy

Postby Opelia Rendon » Thu Jul 04, 2019 10:45 pm

Hello! Not sure if this is the right topic or not.

But what are the ways that you can enhance your spiritual energy to greater levels? I mean besides purchasing. Like more...natural methods.

Thanks in advance!

Maybe it depends on your general path?

My answer is very personalised. It's a bit of splurge. Not sure if that is what you wanted but thanks for asking as it is a timely reminder for me of these things.

I would do spiritual type inner meditations, as well as meditating on the chi field around me, getting into the flow of chi or spiritual energies in me, my different levels of auras or energy fields, connection with the spiritual nature of the natural Universe around me, the Universe of this or that energy...oneness with the Universal chi field, oneness with the Universe, oneness with (for me) a gnostic/ semi-kabbalistic God force (which is both outside of and inside me/us); oneness with the Tao. Feeling Big in terms of energy, aware of my Big nature (a bit like God consciousness, or enlightenment or Shunyata).

Altruistic emotions and compassion, being aware of my natural human warmth and kind heartedness. Tuning in to Peace.

I've been doing these kind of things for nearly 50 years. For me that's easy as long as external circumstances are not oppressive - it's the human side of things I've struggled with. You know, the Hell is Other People kind of thing.


Don’t be scared. This island is full of noises, strange sounds and sweet melodies that make you feel good and don’t hurt anyone. Sometimes I hear a thousand twanging instruments hum at my ears, and sometimes voices that send me back to sleep even if I had just woken up—and then I dreamed of clouds opening up and dropping such riches on me that when I woke up, I cried because I wanted to dream again.

There is something I have been meaning to try. It is based on the idea that when you look with your eyes you are projecting energy out. So get a mirror so you can see your eyes. Imagine that you are in the mirror looking out into your eyes, and receive your energy flowing back into you. It has to become real, but a lot of techniques are based on starting with imagination and letting it take over on its own.

You may have spotted in what I said that something vaguely like that is one of the spiritual things I've picked up along the way. I've encountered it in at least 3 things:

- the concept of Adam Kadmon (which is like our Big Self out there in the Universe, a kind of mirror image of us watching us as we watch it);
- self observation techniques where we stand outside of ourselves and see ourselves as if for the first time;
- a Gnostic immortality mind 'secret' that uses self observation, as well as a gnostic power affirmation: 'I and the Father are one. I am the Father and the Father is in me.' This is a Gnostic/Christian occult or mystic/ Kabbalistic mish-mash that equates to the Taoist idea that we are all the Tao. And that we have a big self as well as a little self.

(This is also like the idea of our potential God nature. And along those lines there's also that thing where you imagine yourself as a God and direct your prayers at yourself then become that God and grant your own wishes)

Sometimes it all reminds a me a bit of those old Batman comics where he stepped into a mirror universe, where everything was distorted out of whack and reversed, even Batman. But in the spiritual version of that mirror realm, everything is perfected - a bit more like in Plato's concept of perfect forms in the Realm of Forms.

No. I picked it up from Osho.

I probably should have said: did you notice that that was what I was talking about in the post before the one you made? It's all similar kind of techniques I guess.

Jed McKenna wrote that we are a bottomless pit of nothing and that our existence is a defense against falling in. He said that becoming Enlightened is a matter of jumping in. I have had a good look down that pit, more than once, and I'm close to the edge - but it isn't permanent, not yet. You aren't there, either.

Osho said it is like boiling water, although he uses Celsius. We are like heating water. You can go on heating and cooling, but it doesn't count unless you turn to steam. You can reach 99% of the way there or even 99.9% and it still doesn't count. You can waste your entire life. Most people do.

Jed was talking to a guy who had studied and practiced for decades. I don't remember how long it was. Jed asked him what he would do if someone said that first, he had to forget everything he had ever learned and start over. What would you do?

When I read this I think of Enlightment as being a different topic to increasing one's spiritual energy. I think on the OP question, you can do that without being enlightened. (As with most things people can mean different things when they talk of enlightenment anyway.)

I'd like to say you don't (in my opinion) have to reach any stage of enlightenment to increase your spiritual energy. Maybe my favourite method is just to ease into all of those energies and feelings that I've connected to via meditation or whatever.

Also the White Arts energy gathering exercise in the Creepy Hollows White Arts book is a good one too, I find.

On the other points...

The first one sounds a bit like a void / shunyata / catching the train of the self thing....going beyond Me / the Ego.

The Osho comment you mention sounds like a concept of sublimation. Refinement of a gross substance to a higher level. You can encounter that in Taoism's internal alchemy and in Science Fiction too.

The next bit sounds like a beyond mind and concepts approach.

I've worked with all of these things in various ways over the decades. Maybe they are all aspects of spirituality, although the problem with each (I think) is they can become some kind of Holy Grail - a seemingly impossible goal always just out of reach that we can stress ourselves about on how we aren't There yet.

Constant effort is required to avoid Enlightenment. That is why techniques are indirect. They keep you so occupied with something harmless that before you notice it, you are sliding into your basic reality. You become accident prone in a good way because Enlightenment is the greatest accident that can ever happen to you. And then you lose interest in systems of thought, disciplines, religions, techniques, and so on. Awakenings where you have a quick look are common. The hard part is getting it back after you have seen. Eventual success comes when it has become your normal state of being, and it is so ordinary that there is nothing left to say about it. Once you have seen even once, nothing less is enough. Until then you can go on heating and cooling your water. It helps if you have met someone who has already turned to steam, but people like that tend to be bad teachers. To them, it is so obvious that you can also be steam that it is hard to see how you might have to struggle and work to get there. The more natural the process they followed the harder it is for them to relate. But knowing that it has happened can help when it is your time because turning to steam is a big leap. You lose control.

A more direct energy way would be the act of pushing your energy out and re-absorbing it because you’re cycling your energy and each time you extend your input and output. A purchase can temporarily push it or not at all (purchases never worked for me) or general practice of energy work because it’s developing your system causing it to grow.
