I have spent much time of late exploring and employing practices for concentration and full-bodied awareness and intention to live in a state of lucidity. I recently wrote about living lucidly rather than becoming enlightened, which has fewer expectations attached to it of what that should look like.
Manifestation of specific scenarios is a part of the practice, as I hone my skills for influencing the outcomes in the dream. There are many similarities between manifestation processes, all of them emphasizing the importance of clearly stating what you want, feeling it as if it is already so, and visualizing the details of what that looks like.
Not all people start out being good at all three components of this. I know I was not particularly strong at being able to see myself doing something, at least not in an embodied way. I was typically more in an observer role of a me that I was not integrated with, if that makes sense. In other words, I was not really in my body, but more of a spectator of my life. Additionally, I didn’t always have a strong sense of what something would feel like that I didn’t have much experience with. It became more of a general, “it would feel good.”
Recently, I have been introduced to Neville Goddard (1905 -1972), who was one of the most influential “New Thought” leaders of the past century. In one of his re-released, recorded lectures he describes a process for building the energy of what you are visualizing through deepening the breath and then finally, “exploding” the scene and releasing it to the universe to be made manifest (on the timeline it is meant to be received).
A memory of a process I had heard described years ago integrated itself with this exercise, taking it to another level. That process was to create the context for what you wanted to manifest and to birth it with an orgasm. The concept had always intrigued me, however, I never really put it into practice.
At this juncture, the combination of the two approaches makes perfect sense because of the heightened sense of concentration, focus and felt-body sense with an orgasm and also the ensuing melting of self, at least momentarily, into a larger pool of vibrating gratitude. To use this cosmic gift of creative force consciously makes all the sense in the world.
Today in my visualization meditation I imagined the spark of life igniting in my womb to form the me that was being reborn. Below is the affirmation:
I am Love
I am Light
I am Abundant Creative Flow
Born of the ecstatic union of Grace and Pure Consciousness.
I emerge from the womb of life, born again as innocent perception.
And So It Is!
All is Well!
