How They Started
I started playing with portals a few years ago. Or at least I remember that a couple of years back I was sitting at a friend’s Lake home in Northern Wisconsin. I was on the deck looking out at the forest in front of me. The trees were so thick that they almost obscured the lake. When I looked up into the trees, I saw wheels of energy. The wheels were like concentric circles. They didn’t last long. At first, I thought that it was the energy of the tree that I was seeing. And in a way it was. But it was also something else. Since then I have seen them many times and most recently, I have begun playing with them.
I believe the wheels to be portals. So why not go inside? I ask myself. But how do I do this? They seem to disappear so quickly. They sit in your awareness and then you notice them. If you try to hold them. They disappear. So, interacting is about allowance and just allowing them to show up. I couldn’t decide if I should say “interacting” or “inneracting”. That is so funny because both are true.
Allow and Notice
I practice allow and notice. Allow notice. Allow notice. Take a deep breath and exhale. Just look around. Forget about it all. When you look around eventually, the portals will show up. And then say, “Oh there you are”. Say thank you and let it be. When it disappears, don’t try to hang on to it. It will return sooner if you aren’t contracted by trying to hang on to it.
This morning the wheels showed up in the two trees in front of my deck during my morning meditation. I simply noticed them and allowed them. Today they started to change. They spiraled and combined. So, I thought why not join them. Then I thought that if they were portals then they would act like the gates on the science fiction series, Startgate. And that there would be a portal on this side and also one on the other side. Since there are an infinite number of portals and they are everywhere, one would have to choose the portal here and also choose the portal on the other side. One could simply join the two portals in a kind of spiral Like a yin and yang.
You could join them forward or backward in time or in different locations. This would be a way to jump from one location to another.
I had previously played with noticing the portals behind me. After all you don’t really see them with your eyes. You see them with your Mind’s eye or your “inner eye” as my friend Christine Laria likes to call it. So, I am capable of noticing the portals behind me as well. I previously thought that rather than stepping forward through the portals. I would step backwards through one or perhaps I would just turn around and look at myself as I sat in one that was behind me.
The portals are all around us infinitely. So where is the portal that I am currently residing in?
I can’t see myself as a tunnel or as flat wheel with a tunnel emanating from it. So, I see myself as a ball. I think that I have to join my ball with what I am perceiving as a tunnel behind a flat gate. But that doesn’t seem right. Instead I can perceive my self as large chakra. First, I see the 7 chakras as gates. Then I see one big chakra. I don’t know if I have combined them or if my heart or crown chakra has taken over. Maybe my third eye has taken over because after all this practice is about perception.
“Taken over” feels little unsafe so I remind my root chakra that it gets to come along also.
At some point I will join my very large chakra gate to the one I perceive and jump. Opps I already have. The chakra gates have combined.
A Cosmic Coincidence and Later On
I was sitting in my living room talking to my husband John later this morning. I was telling him about my morning meditation and the wheels. He said funny you should say that. This morning I dreamt that I was in Kentucky. And there was this wheel in front of me and I could see Minneapolis on the other side like it was on a screen. So I floated up and became a jet plane and flew to Minneapolis. I snapped back a few times. I could see people and places on the tunnel walls. But they were all fuzzy. And I could hear the control tower talking. They said, “but you can’t possibly be here now because you only left Kentucky 4 minutes ago”. I laughed.
John was having this dream at the same time that I was having and writing about my experience from this morning’s meditation. This was one of the many cosmic coincidence type of experiences that we have shared.
Techniques for Activating our Perception of the Portals
- Practice allow and notice. Take a deep breath and exhale. Just look around. Forget about it all. When you look around, eventually, the portals will show up. And then say, “Oh there you are”. Say thank you and let it be. When it disappears, don’t try to hang on to it. It will return sooner if you aren’t contracted by trying to hang on to it. Notice it and allow it to appear and disappear. Allow it to show up. Notice when you notice that it shows up. Breathe and relax and let it all go. Then notice. Don’t look for it. Just Notice.
- Practice fuzzy awareness and focus. Doing this will help with the above practice. Awareness is fuzzy. Let all focus go from your awareness and watch the world from your peripheral vision. Then focus your eyes intently on an object. Like a chair or a rock in front of you. Go back and forth between awareness and focus. Increase this more and more rapidly until they seem to combine. When they combine, then you will be able to do both at the same time. The advantage of this is that you can move forward when you focus. This is where you place your attention. And this is your intention. Awareness is the place where you discover infinite possibilities. And from this place you can select where you want to place your focus. You need both possibility and choice. Possibility offers you the choice and making the choice moves you forward. Awareness and focus experienced together at the same time gives you increased energy and power.
Now you have a choice.
- You can comment.
- You can share.
- You can implement.
I would prefer it if you implemented. But I will be happiest if you do all three. Please join the Joy Project Community by leaving your email address below.
