Being Alone, Bodies , and Complex: YOUR BODY IS YOUR BRAIN TOO IG: @CONSCIOUSVIBRANCY Your body is collecting inputs from all over and feeding them to your brain to reprogram it. By becoming aware of the intricacies of your nervous system, you can learn to control it. And because the nervous system serves as a sort of unifying field between the physical, emotional, and mental bodies, learning to direct it consciously can provide a path to psycho spiritual mastery. via @consciousvibrancy ・・・ Spiritual advancement is about being in right relation, not developing “powers.” It’s about striving after personal mastery and transpersonal awareness, gaining gnosis through experience, and dedicating oneself to serving and inspiring humanity. Energetic sensitivity can be a positive motivating force along the Path, but only if you guard against seeking it as an end in itself. When endeavoring to awaken the higher senses, it’s important to focus the awareness on the subtleties of your own body-mind system. The esoteric science of nervous system control is vast and complex, and has informed the lives and actions of countless spiritual visionaries down through the ages. It’s estimated by some Theosophists that in the Vedic tradition alone, over 80,000 tracts have been composed on the subject. Body-mind system mastery is regarded as they key to silencing the mind in some Buddhist sects, and it is central to the practice of shamanism, as well as many forms of indigenous medicine and ritual. The concept even appears in early Gnostic Christianity. The physical body is an emergent outgrowth of the etheric body. It is condensed vibration slowed to the frequency of physical matter and ordered according to a universal template. The physiological template is ordered around energetic centers of focus (often called chakras). These chakras are magnetic light vortices that serve as hubs for all of the body’s energetic channels. The body contains innumerable energetic channels (called nadis in yogic philosophy) that emanate from each chakra center. All of these channels are also ordered according to the Principles of sacred geometry. The body’s etheric channels may be controlled and directed through proper combination of physical alignment (such as asana or shamanic ritual posturing), breathwork (pranayama), and intentionality.
