I am very thankful for Hemi-Sync Technology. At the outset, I knew I needed instruction to learn to meditate, and as one might think me to be a 'professional student,' "I" took it upon my self to be my own teacher. The scientific approach to exploring the meditative mind was what I was most comfortable with, initially. I needed meditation to live up to all the promises outlined in the books I was reading, but I was blessed with the desire to pursue within meditation what I had perceived as well - the comforting, loving, "awareness-of-another-awareness" within myself.
Transparent-Loving-Kindness Toward Self
Over the duration of the first six months of daily meditation - a daily, conscious act of transparent-loving-kindness toward my 'self' - 'I' released all perceived emotional, psychological, physical, and metaphysical weights to 'the Presence/Other' who 'I' sensed within this state. The grief from the death of a loved one had been the precursur to this defining decision to establish a meditative practice, and live in this new way. If you have ever experienced grief due to the death of a loved one, the kindest recourse for your own mind and heart, I believe, is meditation.
Meditate to Know Higher Awareness Consciously
When the conscious mind 'gives-up, and gives-in' - and observes itself transparently - the identity of the individual is now changed. One has postioned himself to now see beyond all limitations he had previously known through his mortal identity, and the state that reveals what had been there all along (a Higher Awareness), becomes a conscious part of the new Whole Self. Now, through meditation, the mind has realized a source within oneself that provides reprieve from perceived 'life-stress," and a way to manifest through himself the peace and Higher understanding that could not be known otherwise.
The Real Teacher is Within 'You'
And, because this was the case, there was no need for a teacher other than the One who I realize is within me. My mind, my "self," now daily experiences the Spirit of God within meditation, and this has 'overflowed' into a conscious state that perceives Universally. What this means is that conscious perception is now naturally aware of, and informed by Spiritual energies within and beyond any physical perception in the 'now'. Further, it is also a sense all its own. Overall, I began to experience my meditative consciousness within a new location, one other than my physical body.
See Beyond Self-Structures, Now
To most easily understand this changed orientation to reality within oneself, is to understand the meditative expansion of the mind to include sensory input from beyond oneself. We all receive information via the eyes, ears, nose, mouth and skin (at least most of us). Further, we know we have a 'mind' - an awareness - and that we make our identity through the use of it. Overall, through the conscious manifestation of Spiritual events within one's life because of meditative efforts, seemingly anomalous extrasensory experiences that the mind cannot explain with only logic, inform it in what at first seems an 'exotic' way. What I mean is that this meditative state realized is an altering of the consciousness into a highly-focused spiritual force within oneself. What occurs when one has become so relaxed in the body and mind, while simultaneously alert-and-oriented, is a mind-state that sees beyond what 'you' have built with your mind thus far in life - it sees beyond self-structures, into a blissful state-of-mind that is Higher Consciousness realized within one's self, now.
