Basics of High Vibrational Living - Part 3: Developing an Inner Lexicon of Sensations
By jona bryndis, Jul 4 2016 06:00AM
Although Energy Work is still regarded as “woo woo practice" somewhere in between non-scientific and non-spiritual, there is not a single person who doesn't have unexplainable inner sensations at times, be it physically, hearing messages, getting sudden promptings or even seeing things. You may degrade them as 'just' being your imagination, but a deeper look into the purpose of these inner perceptions can reveal that there resides a different level of intelligence within us. We all know what a 'gut feeling' is. Inner signals can give us information beyond what our intellectual mind can perceive or process. Energetic Sensations are not new - but what is changing is that more and more of us experiencing them on a daily basis.
So, we're dealing with an empirical phenomenon, another level of unseen foreces, and like with so many new sciences, we are looking at the dawn of a new human consciousness discipline yet to be fully explored by mainstream science, but familiar and well documented by the early navigators of the healing and precognition arts that have exitsted in all civilizations throughout the history of humanity.
Reading and working with inner and outer energies can be learned by anyone! Sadly, we have been programmed to disregard or even shut down our inner energetic sensitivity and thus never learned how to develop our inner perception as child. If we did we all would be familiar with our inner energetic compass and knew how to listen and follow our energetic perception.
We all have the ability to sense when things are off or in line. In Energy Work we call these sensations Dissonances and Resonances - energies that are in line with our inner energetic frequency or in opposition. For most of us it’s the easiest to make out dissonances. Something doesn’t feel right and an inner subtle voice tells us to refrain from it. It is a very basic but also very important sense and integral part of our innate survival system. If we are not already familiar with our inner lexicon of energetic signals, we typically disregard this inner prompting only to find out later, that we already ‘knew’ it wasn’t the right decision for us.
The application of energy work is not limited to advanced energy healing. One of the most common uses of energy work is in daily decision-making, relationship issues, inner/outer communication and general well-being through improved personal energy management. After all, our body is not just a computer-like physical organism. It consists of several different bodies and immune systems of which our physical body is just one. To address and improve the entirety of our being we also need to consider our mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic (often called etheric) body.
For the intermediate energy worker knowing his/her inner lexicon of signals and learning about the mechanics and terminology of our energy body can be very life enhancing. With the developing awareness of inner energies it can help to guide us in manifestation, spiritual and overall consciousness work. Advanced energy workers can use their inner knowing and ability to sense inner and outer energies before they manifest. They can learn how to use their perception for healing, protection and even extra-sensory applications.
Building a lexicon of inner signals takes a bit of practice and cannot easily be compared or assessed. It addresses our subjectivity, something that we have been conditioned to neglect. We have been trained to only trust in objectivity, which if you think about it for a moment, is quite backwards…
“Knowledge doesn’t mean anything until we internalize the meaning for us. Therefore, in total contrast to our popular belief system that only objectivity would allow for truth, true understanding has to be connected with our subjective experience! Doing better is the process of understanding better what you are experiencing.” (Jona Bryndis, 'If we knew better...")
The reason why energy work or the discipline of energy reading and balancing is not yet part of our daily tool-set is because there are not enough teachers who understand the qualitative paradigm of inner alignment. Subjectivity cannot be taught through objectivity. It requires the student to trust in his or her inner connection, which is something that we have been conditioned NOT to do since early childhood!
Energy does not feel same for everyone and thus needs to be experienced to be learned! There is no right or wrong. All that matters is our ability to detach from our ego and rely on our inner alignment to our heart's intelligence. Therefore, what is right for you may not be right for me!
Each and every one of us has a different way of perceiving and processing inner signals in the beginning; for some it’s easier to connect with their physical energies, others are more visually inclined and for most of us it’s just a feeling. This is why I recommend working with our physical energy centers – our Chakras at first.
Learning the Alphabet of Your Energy
Chakra Work is the foundation for learning how to scan, read and direct inner energies. It’s like learning the alphabet of your own energy. From here on every energy work or meditation session you do will deliver you additional information about the current state of your energy. This information will enable you to spontaneously understand what you need to balance yourself. The more you work with your inner energies the more detailed the information you will receive.
When learning a new skill, it’s useful to receive the new information broken down into individual steps first. Just like driving a car. If you divide ‘how to start your car’ into individual steps you can come up with 10 different actions to just getting your car to move – but do you think about these steps when you do it? No! You rely on your conditioned muscle memory and your understanding about the mechanics of driving. The same applies to working with your inner energies. Once you’ve developed this basic understanding and your first-hand details of scanning and balancing energy work techniques can be learned by anyone!
Energy Work, like every new skill, needs time to develop. The more conscious attention you pay to your inner energies, the more you will begin to understand intuitively! Eventually, you will develop so much confidence that you can break through all barriers of your inner perception (ego, emotions, beliefs, expectations, programs, etc.) and get all this information by simply asking your inner guidance to show you what you need to see!
Therefore, the first step when entering this larger perspective of working with inner and outer energies is to realize that things may be entirely different from how we thought they were. This is one of the most needed shifts in consciousness no matter where we are at in understanding our inner energies. One of the easiest ways to learn inner energies is in meditation, self-observation and self-study. However, if we are left all on our own the journey of learning about ones energies can be dreading and many get stuck in their mental evaluation. With a good trainer or guide, this can be overcome fairly quickly.
Understanding Energetic Dynamics
Apart from gaining knowledge and becoming aware of these realms of our energy body, the main purpose of understanding our energy is that the lower densities and the symptoms we perceive with our body/immediate senses are just the tip of the iceberg. In reality, all physical, mental and emotional perceptions are ultimately linked to our much larger subtle fields.
When it comes to the detail work of energetic perception, you will find that your inner energetic guidance system is much more refined than you thought. No matter whether you heard about your subtle fields for the first time or are a trained energy worker, the depth of your perception has no limits – that is, if you can manage to bypass your mind and emotion.
In order to fully understand how our inner energy works we need to understand the basics of energetic dynamics: The way energy flows through us, how it’s transferred between people, how it can get stuck, how energies can attach and what can make our energy centers (where our energy is processed) imbalanced. Guided workshops with an experienced energy worker can help you to get the needed feedback so that you can begin to feel energetic dynamics within you on your own.
The foundation of energy work is the understanding that everything, every sensation, emotion or thought is caused by an underlying vibration of energy. If we get stuck in a vibratory state that causes negativity we can learn to shift our vibration so that we can change our emotions, for example. For most of us this is contrary to how we were taught causality works. We believe that our state of energy is fixed and that it’s the result of how we feel – in reality it’s the other way around.
Our feelings, sensations, physical conditions and thoughts are the result of our energetic state.
To change, heal and resolve energetic dissonances it is important to understand that a low energy can be most easily balanced and compensated for with focusing on a energy! There we need to learn the alphabet of low and high energies, and how they show within us, first. I have called this the inner lexicon of energetic perceptions. Without this discernment, we are barely able to work with our energies without getting caught in our mind or emotion.
This can best be done by consciously entering the part in us that can observe while experiencing sensations. Meditation and other introspective modalities can help us to enter this state. This is not to be confused with a higher state of consciousness, albeit can lead to it.
What is meant is a state of oneness with your consciousness in which we can bypass thinkingness and emotional reactivity tied to our thoughts and perceptions!
This is the reason why it's important to seek your heart-connection first. Apart from regulating excess mental and emotional energies, your heart-center also functions as a very powerful energetic gateway for higher vibratory frequencies. Through your heart you can activate your higher perception and ability to work your energies. Compared to these higher vibratory frequencies maintained through your heart vortex, Physical, mental or emotional sensations are relatively low frequencies. So, by aligning your energy to our (Sacred) Heart you can facilitate an instant and often spontaneous balancing/healing of pain, ailments or lower emotional states.
However, when it comes to deeper and often hidden aspects, such as spiritual, karmic or etheric issues, the balancing needs to take place in even higher energetic frequencies. This can be learned, too. By focusing our attention to our – what we call - Consciousness Chakras we are training our energy system to enter these high frequency states and activate self-healing without us actually ‘having to do anything’. This is the secret of energy work. The difficulty for the untrained person is to maintain those higher states, which is why we need to practice going beyond our initial limitations of perception, even if we cannot imagine ever becoming able to heal ourselves!
Ultimately, all you really need to remember is:
If an inner aspect is recurring or your overall energy is consistently low, chances are the actual imbalance is located in your higher Chakra Fields. Anything you address in the higher vibratory fields of your energy body will replicate into your lower systems! Trauma, Karmic Ties, Etheric Attacks, Manifestation Blocks and Energetic Masculine & Feminine issues (see keyword search) are located in the higher vibratory Consciousness Chakras of our energy body. However, without proper consciousness work and allowing these aspects to integrate energy work can only get us so far. The most efficient way to work our energy and dissonant inner aspects is to routinely clear our energy and then to work on individual aspects as they arise.
As you develop more awareness of your own energy you will begin to see/feel the interaction between different energy system, such as people, places, plants, animals etc. which will then become another level of energy work. At this level you will need to learn how to unify and consolidate your energy for Etheric Protection (see article series "ETHERIC PROTECTION".)
The 9 Stages of Learning How to Feel, Read & Work Inner Energies
Self-Healing through energy work is a complex process of addressing many different levels of our inner energy, such as vibratory rate, emotional state, inner connection, level consciousness and energetic perception. The main objective of learning how to read and work energies is to increase your awareness of your inner energy flow and blockages as well as empowering you to identify, shift, correct and improve your energetic states through personal energy management.
With the growing body of scientific evidence that our inner self-healing abilities are not just existent, but also quite powerful, the benefits of consciously feeling, reading and working our inner energies is not a secret anymore. It can be learned by anyone. Energy Work can enhance our overall well-being, increase our self-reliance and even lead to the development of undiscovered self-healing powers.
Learning how to read and work our inner energies proceeds in several stages. The activation of our energetic self-healing is achieved through our natural ability to consciously connect within. The deeper our inner connection the stronger our ability to perceive energies develops: physically, emotionally, visually, through our mind’s eye as well as through spiritual and mystical experiences.
STAGE 1: PAYING ATTENTION & CONNECTING WITHIN
The main prerequisite to developing conscious self-healing abilities is the active development of (subjective) energetic sensitivity or perception so that we can begin to feel all our own energy systems. The most common obstacle blocking our spontaneous self-healing ability to unfold is our mental and emotional overlay along with an overall lack of inner connection. This can make the access to our inner energetic signals difficult, which is why we typically need to deal with removing those in the beginning. Falling asleep or drifting off are common signs of inner resistance but can be overcome through practice.
Being actively involved through paying attention to our own energetic states marks the first and most important stage of self-healing. It teaches us self-guided, independent and intuitive directing of inner heart based energies and supports spontaneous self-correction and healing in areas of need.
STAGE 2: NOTICING OUR OVERALL STATE OF ENERGY
In the beginning we notice the overall state/frequency of our system as either low or high (we call this slow and fast). Subjectively we can experience this as feeling centered, in harmony, flow or at ease when our energy (flow) is high; or as contracted, heavy, down, dark, fatigued, anxious or caved in when our energy (flow) is low. Later we will receive more detailed information, such as colors, trajectories, directions, flow and frequency.
STAGE 3: INCREASING INTENSITY & BEGINNING DEVELOPMENT OF INNER SIGNALS
Very soon after consciously connecting with our inner energies we will notice that our attentive observation already seems to influence our experience. The more we focus on our energy the more input/sensations we will get.
With the developing ability to connect directly with our heart, we learn to bypass our mind’s resistances and the intensity of our energetic sensations will become stronger.
Beginning energetic sensations are often characterized by physical experiences: sudden heat, pulse, or tingling in certain body parts or areas; but also twitching, itching, pressure and stings (and more). They typically show where we have physical imbalances, attached, stored or blocked energies there that need to be examined. This doesn’t necessarily mean that we have anything ‘wrong’ there (though it can), it just means that our inner guidance is prompting us to have a deeper look/feel into this area to find out what these sensations are linked to.
While these sensations can feel a bit uncomfortable sometimes, they often serve an important regulatory and healing purpose and trigger for our deeper emotional, mental or spiritual aspects to come forward. The best way to go about this is to first just take note of it and then later go back for deeper reflection if they persist or come back to our attention. Journaling can make up a very important part of our energy work, as many of our sensations are subtle at first and often don’t reveal their deeper meaning until we unlock other important puzzle pieces.
STAGE 4: DIFFERENTIATING OUR ENERGETIC GUIDANCE SYSTEMS
With the deeper level of our observation we can begin to divide our inner signals into five groups of energetic guidance systems: physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and etheric. With a little practice, each of these different types of signals can be perceived and their patterns recognized.
The more often we connect with our energy centers the more detailed these signals become. Depending on our initial personal aptitude for signal processing our perceptions can range from visual, auditory, tactile, feeling-based or mind’s eye sensations.
STAGE 5: ACTIVELY WORKING ON BUILDING AN INNER LEXICON OF OUR SENSATIONS
The goal of regular exercise is to build an overall lexicon of inner signals so that we can translate our perceptions into practical energy work techniques to correct or heal these imbalances.
The resonance of the provided guided energy processes (CHAKRA INTENSIVES) is attuned to showing imbalances and guiding our attention into areas of need so that they can be actively addressed. This can be very physical for some, but also very emotional or spiritual, depending on where the majority of self-healing needs to take place at a moment. However, since all energetic bodies are intrinsically connected with another, one aspect often triggers another and vice versa.
STAGE 6: ALLOWING THE DEEPER ASPECTS TO BE SHOWN
When the frequency of a particular transMISSION field is very high, a session can go very deep into the spiritual aspect of our energy systems. Spiritual perceptions can show in deep spiritual insights but also as mystical beings working with us as well as deep visionary experiences during or after a transMISSION session. These deeper energetic experiences are not to be underestimated; they can show us underlying causes for physical, emotional or mental aspects, which is why I often point participants to feel out initial sensations by re-connecting with them after session.
STAGE 7: RECOGNIZING SPIRITUAL ASPECTS
Purpose of the overall development of our energetic perception is the deeper healing and letting of the ‘burden’ of inner wounds and violations to our inner and outer integrity. While this will free up some of our locked up energies it can also lead to a deep spiritual-emotional desire for ‘absolution’. Seeking forgiveness and absolution is a natural part of our healing process and can be perceived as very relieving especially in regards to having been wounded by others or having inflicted pain to others. Both forms of pain energy are stored in our energetic systems.
If this need for forgiveness remains unresolved it can severely lower our overall energetic vibration and therefore lead to energetic contractions promoting secondary ailments, disorders or imbalances in other areas of life (e.g. trauma syndromes, addictions, etc.) Therefore, for many of us these deeper aspects turn out to be the true causes for having difficulties expressing or manifesting self-love and allowing love/connection/intimacy with others.
STAGE 8: RECOGNIZING BEHAVIORAL ASPECTS
With developing accuracy we will notice how behavioral aspects are also reflected in our energy system. As we continue with our deeper consciousness work we will discover conditioned programs and learned defense patterns, such as judgments, projection of blame, guilt or disdain, resentment and anger. It can also clearly show if we have been externalizing our inner healing powers. Therefore, seeking absolution can also lead to the misconception that something outside of us is needed to finally let go of our old wounds, which is not the case.
STAGE 9: SELF-RESPONSIBILITY AND ACTIVE SELF-HEALING
True self-healing occurs through acceptance, self-love and letting go. The only kind of absolution we need is the kind that we learn to give ourselves. All violations against our inner integrity can be instantly forgiven through our unconditional expression of self-love. This increases the vibratory rate of our entire energy field to a point where slow energies cannot sustain any longer and transmute into faster frequencies.
The connection between our spirituality, developing self-reflection disciplines and our ability to self-heal is nothing to be afraid of, on the contrary! This growing energetic sensitivity will empower us for more self-responsibility and thus less judgment. Your energetic perception will have become so intuitive to us, that every discovered pattern only further increases our willingness and ability to locate and correct our energy. However, our ability to know and work our energy will also lead to us becoming able to contextualize our journey, our energy and our purpose in life. It leads us to accepting our personal propensities and tendencies and ultimately stills the urge to look for more. We learn to let go and how staying in our heart is the only practice that can carry us through …even of the things we can’t know!
There is so much more than our ego can see… stay curious but remember that whatever your ‘psychic detective work’ presents to you is only a stepping stone to surrendering to your inner higher power!
