A Doorway to the Infinite

An excerpt from A Doorway to the Infinite, by Mary Montgomery:

It was an email from the Chicago chapter of the Institute of Noetic Sciences that alerted me to the Sacred Sound Meditation workshop at the Theosophical Society in Wheaton on June 11, 2016.

Two things kindled in me a desire to go: the presenters, Eben Alexander, MD and Karen Newell, and the fact that I already regularly incorporate binaural beat-type sounds into my meditation practice.

Ah! Here was my chance. I attended the workshop, or playshop as Eben likes to call it, with at least 100 other spiritual sound seekers. We were not disappointed. The day-long playshop was chock full of pertinent information, and in-depth practice. 

Let me touch upon the Sacred Acoustics meditations and our reactions to them. Here are the insights from the Heart Center, Ground and Expand meditation:

I feel like an instrument that was strummed so hard that the vibration is still shaking me. It was phenomenal… I almost want to cry…”

Karen’s comments: “The crying thing is not unusual. We’re focusing on the heart. We’re activating the heart…Crying is an excellent way to release those traumas…Any time the sensation of crying comes up, my recommendation is CRY! When you resist it you’re putting it back in.”

“…At times I was the vibration, then I was the observer and would observe these other thoughts like the chattering mind that was way far away and I didn’t feel the emotion of it…” (sic)

Karen: “It is the observer that notices the thoughts. That’s your consciousness… And when you can notice yourself noticing—that’s the key…The observer is very neutral. What you’re observing is not neutral…”

The first few times (guess I was resisting) nothing much happened, but results can be subtle – felt more at peace and quiet….and do not want to be afraid to explore. Thanks.
