What is Altered States Meditation?
Altered State is a state similar to a dream. It is a natural state of mind, but it is not explored consciously very often, as our society is focused more on material values obtained using Ego and logical mind. ASM allows your consciousness to expand, communicate with different aspects of who you are, to discover the world existing at different vibrational levels. You exist at multiple vibrational frequencies at the same time and by changing your focus to a higher frequency you could safely explore it.
Through the human evolution Altered States were accessed using meditation techniques, fasting, sleep deprivation, drugs and even ritual suffocating and reviving the person. In modern history some new techniques emerged like binaural sound beats, sensory deprivation chambers, bio-feedback, modern meditation techniques and hypnosis. I studied deeply TMI binaural beats – The Monroe Institute scientific meditation method. It is interesting to know that Tibetan bells have binaural beats encoded in them. There always is some connection from the ancient time to the future of human evolution.
I personalty do not support use of drugs for spiritual awakening, but I am not criticising other people life choices. Everybody has to decide what works for them. My simple reasoning is that use of drugs makes you dependent on external factors, usually requires increasing doses to reach a similar level of experience, which potentially leads to significant health problems. It also does not support conscious, focused exploration of Altered States and just allows you from time to time to randomly touch the surface of this experience in uncontrollable way. You can reach much higher level of vibrations through Altered States Meditation, that will support your health, increase your awareness and can transform your life in positive way. As one participant said - "Altered States Meditation is like ayahuasca without the nausea".
When I mention control, I do not mean that you would control the results of ASM journey. I mean that you would consciously focus on exploring different aspects of ASM state accessible to you, without trying to limit the experience to fit your expectations.
Through this personal experience you could transform your understanding of who you are and where are you going on your life path. You could use it for healing, personal transformation and development, receive important guidance, release energy blocks and limiting belief systems. As you could safely and legally explore those states through ASM meditation, use of chemical substances is in my opinion not needed.
ASM allows you to enter a very deep relaxation state to connect to your spiritual centre. The Universe is much bigger than this physical world and it also has intelligent, non-physical energy, that is ready to assist you on your path. However as you have free will, you need to ask for assistance, otherwise it cannot be provided. You also should choose wisely to work with the highest intelligent energy accessible to you, by obvious reasons.
For many years I worked in IT services, becoming a top specialist in database technology working for Oracle Inc. Global Consulting in USA. However I always was interested in working on expansion of consciousness through energy healing and meditation. During weekends I would conduct meditation and healing workshops. During my events I noticed that many people were entering advanced Altered States. I asked my spiritual guides what was causing it and they explained that I increase energy frequency, helping other people to explore the Altered States. This is how my own ASM meditation system was born, discovering all details step by step.
I use hypnotic and meditative techniques to assist you in deep relaxation, aiming to remain fully conscious during your ASM journey. Each of you may have a different experience. Sometimes very deep and life altering, sometimes very simple, like relaxation, feeling energy flow, seeing colourful lights, etc. Each of us is on a different path. Therefore the results will be different. However if you keep practising with ASM weekly for at least a few moths, you will notice positive changes coming into your life, increase of enjoyment of life, relaxation, release of trauma and unhappiness, opening to unconditional love and friendship supporting you on your path.
The love energy is the energy that created the whole world. If there is no specific person in my life that would embody the physical representation of love, I just love the Universe. I love flowers, bees, trees, dogs, cats, birds, horses, kids, nature, sun, wind, water, food... I consciously focus to remain in a state of love, knowing that a specific person to embody it will materialize one day. When I am love, I allow more love and self-love to flow to me and I exercise my love muscles. It is only a matter of time, until the physical repesentation of love energy will manifest in my life.
I know, that when I will return to my spiritual home, there will only be love. That everybody I connected to in my life is just love and this will be what will bind us. There will be no conflict, separation, negativity, just pure love energy flowing between us. I must say that this purity of love is sometimes what I really miss here, but without the contrast provided by earth life, I would not be expanding so rapidly.
As I worked with ASM I found out that I could conduct remote sessions by phone, Internet or even just directing my intention and the person would experience the healing and the expanded state of consciousness. My goal is to share my discoveries with others, to assist them in reclaiming their own power to consciously create their life.
ASM does not require any indoctrination or belief system giving your power away. It is quite the opposite, it empowers you. You still need to accept assistance from the infinite non-physical Intelligence to help you on your path as you have a free will, but it is not designed to impose anything on you. It is designed to help you with releasing energy blocks, limiting belief systems, opening to your own power that you suppressed. For many people it is difficult to accept that they have to decide what they really want and focus on creating it. Our human logical mind would like to receive precise instructions - like take the bus 111 to a specific point at a specific time and you will become instantly enlightened.
Please understand that your path is created as you walk on it. There are some aspects of it that you pre-planned even before being born. However you could change everything, if you really wanted to. In my opinion it is better to focus on enhancing what you planned, as it may be already quite ambitious, than on rewriting the whole life script. But there is nothing that would prevent you from doing it, if you desire to do so.
One of common misconceptions is that your whole life path is pre-planned and some God like figure grants you or denies personal happiness based on your goodness level, creating conditions you encounter on your path. When you accept that you fully create your own life, it might initially be quite upsetting. Why would I create that? Why would I be stuck in this way? It does not matter why, it only matters that whatever is your limitation, you can transform it.
Many people would say it is not that easy to do it. Nothing is easy until you have done it. The first time you ride a bike, you simply fall. I don't think you can avoid it. I know a beautiful lady who after her first fall decided that she will never be able to ride a bike again. It became her belief, therefore also became the reality of her life. Do you believe that it is possible for anybody not physically challenged to ride a bike? If yes, you can also ride your bike, as you believe it is possible. The same situation is with what you believe to be your own limitation. If you change your thoughts, you will transform your emotions and your believes and it will change your life.
What I do in my workshops is not to touch you with a magic wand and deliver to you whatever conditions are missing from your life to make you happy. I use the ASM wand to help you to enter a state in which you can create your own life the way you want it and release what does not serve you any longer.
Is there a guarantee that you will succeed? There is only one guarantee I know, that if you will not work on transforming your life, on reaching your highest potential, you will never be able to be truly happy for any prolonged period of time. Through hard work you may control some aspects of the external world to create temporary circumstances, that could make you happy at that specific moment. You could buy a new car, house, start relationship, which might make you happy. Those external conditions could deliver a feeling of love, friendship, security, happiness. However sooner or later the external conditions will change, as you really cannot control the world. You only can go with the flow of the river of life, doing the best you can to enjoy it. True happiness comes from the fact that you recognize your own power to create your life, but also understand that nothing ever can be perfect and last forever. That life is like a balancing act standing on top of a greasy ball. Like a helicopter pilot you might be successfully hovering over changing life conditions and just enjoy your journey. Or you may be dropping to the bottom of despair trying to control yet another condition. Those are your life choices and in both cases you contribute to expansion of Universal consciousness through your life experience.
Some people worry that they are enough, that what they do in this life is not enough? By the simple fact that you decided to incarnate here, you presented you gift to the world. Your life experience and struggles contribute to expansion of the Universal consciousness. But you contribute even more, when you are simply happy with your life, not trying to control the circumstances and just enjoying your life.
You will say again, it is hard to do it, but it is only hard until you do it. One day you will clearly see that there simply is no other valid choice and your life will become more than you ever dreamed to be possible...
You have the power to create your life the way you want it, but you also have an Ego. The Ego does not like changes and is mainly concerned with your survival. If you survived 30 years the way you are, it bets you can double it, if you wouldn't change. Ego will find many ways to prevent any change and will blame others for difficulties you create. It will point to you why you should not attend transformative workshops, will help you to select 20 different directions scattering your efforts, or just will state that you are too busy, or even that you already have changed, so it is not needed. To efficiently progress in your personal development you need to make the Ego your assistant – helping you with your logical life tasks. You also need to use your intuition to know the direction in life you want to take.
Based on my experience, significant life transformation could happen over a few months when attending ASM workshops and practising this meditation technique. Sometimes it might happen after a single retreat or after just a few private sessions. Most people are not fully aware of it and attend one or two workshops expecting that it will magically transform their life. You need a little bit of consistency and effort on this path, or you can just follow the Ego trap jumping into every possible workshop and without consistency you are continuously just searching for elusive solution. You created your current life situation over many years and it may take a few months to change your energy.
The first step to transform your life is to decide what you want, the second is to focus on implementing it and the third one is to allow it to come to you. When you have energy blocks, at subconscious level you prevent your amazing manifesting power to materialize what you want in the physical world, so it is important to release it. It is also impossible to be happy at the Ego level. The only option in my opinion is to live at the heart level, using the Ego as you helper, not as your master. This will transcend your Ego. Those changes will open opportunities in your life to experience deep love, friendship, enjoyment of life, which will fuel your energy manifesting your desires.
Enjoy your life, as there is simply no better choice, be well, safe. happy, love and be loved...
