This may be a bit of a deviance from my normal Qabalistic blogs, however, many people want to know how to stimulate clairvoyance (clear seeing), clairaudience (clear hearing) and clairsentience (clear feeling).
These are all extended sensory perceptions, gained by visualizing meditations, Prana Yama meditations (Breath count meditations), skrying the Tarot, mentally "walking" the paths of the Tree of Life and various other means of diligent initiatory work. However, there is a caveat to this, as all the Divya Sidhis (Sanskrit for "Magic Abilities") are easily thwarted by prejudice. Yep, the brain prejudges everything it realizes.
Here is the rub, within three seconds of observation, your brain automatically has judged whether a person or thing is "worthy" or "unworthy" of your acquaintance if not outright friendship. Judging them worthy, the energetic chakric centers of your body and thus some intuition stays open and therefore, we stay "open minded" but when we judge them unworthy, every thing closes down as if we become a fortress shuttered tightly for battle.
In the Qabalah, metaphysical/spiritual practices, energy healing or merely "channeling" the practitioner, must stay judgment free and thus open at all times or the clock wise motion of the Vital energy that they are transmitting, becomes "blocked" or even worse, begins spinning counter clockwise. This backward spin of Life force becomes disease, hate, insanity and various other "back ward" motions of conscious energy that are named as "evil"; evil being live spelled backwards.
Obviously, the brain judges instantly, and that can't be easily stopped. Yet I use a simple technique based on the Principle of Oneness. This principle is shown in the first law of Thermodynamics, which states, "There is only One energy that cannot be created nor destroyed, only transformed or transmitted". We transform our own energy patterns by thought,or prejudgment and transmit that frequency of our life force accordingly.
To make a long story short, the diseased programing in our brain is a virus of a self-destructive nature supplied to us by our cultural indoctrination. Thus we are always enslaved by our imagination, rather than masters of it. This is prejudicial thought. Rather ridiculous really, as this is not a court room, but a planet of proven desirability by its Creator. If it exists, it is supposed to! Thus the Qabalistic axiom of "Above all things, Know thyself" is all important here.
As a medium, psychic, Qabalistic practitioner and all around lover of being, I know that the brain is full of "thoughts that bedevil me"; thoughts that were brainwashed into me by Pleasure-Pain training. These enslaving thoughts were not of my own making, but yet in my youthful ignorance, I accepted them rather than go through the pain of punishment. So I grew up with the "Devil within", which are thoughts that reverse evolution, and stop mental and emotional growth. Yes folks, we are all raised as bigots. Knowingly or unknowingly, there resides in all of us a Bigoted prejudice of one kind or another. This bigotry stops the flow of intuition that is so necessary for proper love, enlightenment and healing work, or divination of any kind. The only way to fix this is becoming unconditional love, which is not a reality in most of our lifetimes. We have conditions.
So the easiest solution I have found to this dilemma of conditioning, is what I call the Hime Principle. No this is not a name of a person, place or thing. Rather it is the name I place on everything I observe.
For instance, when a person sits down in front of me, just visiting or for a divination of Tarot or Aura reading, my brain, as does yours, goes into immediate prejudgment. So I stop this automatic response by saying in my head, " Hi Me!"
You see, i know that everything I see is another way of being me. After all, everything is a Transformation of the One Energy, or One God, if you prefer. So by saying "Hi Me!', the "I Am" energy stays open and vital throughout the body and my intuition is up an running full throttle. Therefore, I don't have to fake a reading, or channeling, in order to keep credibility in the eyes of the public....there is no "public", there is only "Me" and my intuition is from the Higher Self (Greater Self-the,i.e. The Really Big Head), as is yours, so no fake is present.
Buddhist, Sufi and Qabalist alike know that Self is all we'll ever know. What many of us don't know, is that Self is Big! It's called the Universal Collective Unconscious by the parapsychologist Carl Jung, The Higher Self and the Universe by others. It may "all be in your head", but baby, that is One Big Head! And that One Big Head, is the one we wish to channel when we are divining for ourselves, or another of ourselves.
So practice this Hime Principle on everything you see, be it bug, plant, or person and your powerful magic abilities will not be interfered with by the brains natural prejudicial observations. Thus the Inner Self, sees freely and great magic moments become realized. So with out much ado , :Hi Me! And may you live long and prosper.
