LEFT & RIGHT
There are times when others see me cross myself which they interpret as of Catholic upbringing, but is in fact all to do with the crossing of dimensions from physical to the next and not of a self blessing.
With many years of practice in the art of Shiatsu I am familiar with the meridian nature of the bodies energy channels and also the Chakra Centres which have more to do with the movement of my hand from Crown to Base and from Left to Right.
Bringing the potential of the positive Crown into balance with the negative of the Base and then the Left balanced with the Right. It is in the expectation of these balancing mechanisms that I foresee and propose to effect through my own spiritual practice to bring to pass.
It is a fact that we hold within our consciousness the many opposites which our minds bounce between on a regular basis as we go about our daily habits, routines and ceremonies. It is important, I believe, to have a personal meaning to those ceremonies which you enjoy without wondering why you do stuff invented by others.
Which was why when I was presenting a weekend course on ceremony on the Orkney island of Sandy many moons ago when the course was coming to the end of my teaching the participants were encouraged to create their own ceremony with distinct personal meaning, which I am reliably informed one at least still uses to this day.
We have within us the opposites of Left and Right from the very basis of our bodies to the Right and Wrong as we see it to the less obvious perhaps of Sun and Moon to Yin and Yang to Light and Dark and of course Positive and Negative etc., etc.
It is also important to understand the crossover nature of the spirit to the physical in terms of the scientific nature of chemistry and physics to their origins in spiritual science. In this respect we can use the old example of the pendulum which many use in their divining: imagine that the Crown at the top of your head is the pivot point of a supernatural pendulum that swings in perpetual motion from left to right as you change your mind between the opposites which exist within your daily deliberations.
Just imagine if you could come to such a peaceful state of mind that there would be no need for the pendulum to swing anymore that there was harmony between those opposites if fact you had gained internal balance putting you on the first step to enlightenment!
What would happen then?
Physics tells us that when the pendulum comes to rest the energy that was in the motion travels up the pendulum to the pivot point at the top of your head!
This is in fact the much sought after raising of the Kundalini energy, not by false practice, unnatural exercise or breathing techniques, but by the natural bringing together of the forces within you represented by the opposites that have plagued your mental deliberations throughout your life.
This Enlightenment brings you onto the first step of the ladder to Ascension.
It has to be said that the unnatural practices just to raise the Kundalini without the necessary understanding of the levels in between as each pair of opposites are brought to cancellation is not to be undertaken since this can result in mental disturbance to the point of madness.
It should also be said that Enlightenment or the Ascension are an ongoing process of learning and ever raising of the consciousness for as each level is reached another presents itself.
Who would have thought that the rather mundane examination of something as basic as Left and Right could have such far reaching consequences?
This, however, is the very nature of the spiritual path which we are on whether we like it or not. Well, that’s not entirely true because if we don’t like it we can say no to all of this and go our own way at the risk of being left behind!
Better I believe that if you feel you are not ready just yet then rather than to dismiss the possibility out of hand to say, put it on the back burner until you feel ready for it! Certainly for those new to this business it is a much better bet. Just like the young lad who came to the church encouraged by his Gran because he was at the start of mediumship and needed a bit more encouragement and safe guidance, was told by the medium to take it very slowly reserving special time to work in this way and only to talk to those of like mind if at all, and after all who else needs to know?
Newcomers to the spiritual way need careful help and guidance since too many have had their burgeoning gift knocked out of them by unsympathetic elders calling their gift plain nonsense, from which a valuable gift to help others can be killed outright!
If Left and Right means more to you than just the difference between your hands or which way to turn on a map, please don’t dismiss it out of hand seek help from those who can offer guidance in a place of spiritual healing and mediumship and from your own guides and helpers in spirit who will become obvious to you in time. Take it slowly at your own pace.
