Travel in the Spiritual Worlds
Visualizing Fast Movements Involving Strong Gravitational Forces
Much of the problem with meditation based on Eastern techniques is that it does not appeal to Westerners who tend to have active minds. Methods which focus on, for instance, counting the breath tend to produce sleep and boredom in such people.
Visualizing movement is one active method of visualization which may help avoid the problem of boredom. Try the following method to improve visualization skills:
Visualize a bobsled like the ones in the Olympics at the gate at the top of a bobsled run. Note its color, the steering wheel, and the view from the cockpit as you look down the steep slide of snow that leads down the mountain. Now feel yourself being pushed and the bobsled starts careening down the track. Feel the vibration as it picks up speed and steer into the turns as they present themselves. The feeling of gravity rivets you as the turns appear in front of you, and the sled alternately goes sideways on the left and right walls of the track. To vary the ride, you can see the track as a wormhole and ride the sled upside-down for a time and make 360 degree rotations on the track. Try doing this for ten or fifteen minutes feeling the power and dynamic movement of the sled as it barrels down the track to the bottom of the mountain.
As an alternative, you can also visualize a roller-coaster or a sliding board that goes for miles with twists, turns, loops, and dramatic rises and falls which you ride at great speed.
The goal is involve the meditator fully using the powerful sensations of movement and gravitational forces to avoid boredom and disinterest. As always with visualization exercises, the meditator wants to take himself out of the physical world and activate the inner senses in order to induce an experience of spiritual travel. Though such exercises may not produce an experience at the time, they also prepare the individual for controlling his or her movements should a spiritual travel experience occur at a future time.
