Our consciousness, our spirit and our soul, as three components of the multidimensional structure that we possess, are not part of our physical body, but they direct and conduct it, using it as an evolutionary vehicle for this incarnation. When we die, the body dies, but we return to a world in which we really feel at home, because it is our true home. The human body is like a coat, we put it on when we need it, and we take it off when we no longer need it, or when it has fulfilled the mission and function for which we chose it. There is nothing painful or terrible in this, seen from the point of view of the soul and other levels that we have, although we can not often understand it from the point of view of our analytical mind and the world of the senses.
Different spiritual writings and ancient traditions locate the place of the projection of our reality in the pineal gland, connected to our seventh chakra, in the upper part of the head. Our consciousness, on the other hand, is located in the so-called sphere of consciousness, in the mental body, but we can “move” that consciousness towards any other part of our body and we will have the sensation of perceiving the world from that other part. Let’s explain an exercise to do that.
Let’s play a little with the imagination and see what comes out. First we will notice the difference between having our consciousness concentrated in one part of our body, and moving that consciousness to that same part of the body. For that, simply put all your attention in your right hand. Feel it, try to perceive your hand as much as you can. You may notice all the details of it, the tension, the body temperature, the bones and tendons, but realize that it is your mind that is receiving those sensations when your attention is focused on the hand. You are not yet “in the hand”.
Think now of your consciousness as if it were a ball of light inside your head, do not give too much importance to what comes, the idea is to imagine now how this ball of light goes down to your throat, to the fifth chakra.
Visualize it, imagine it. You can imagine as if you were sending that ball down a slide or through a conduit from the head to the throat, so that you, being that ball, see how your perspective changes, you slide down that ball and your mind stays there above. Try to perceive how your head is really moving away while you reach the throat at the end of the canal.
When you have reached the throat chakra (keep imagining) you will notice that your perspective has changed. Now it is as if you saw the world from your neck, and around you, there are other sensations that do not exist when you are in the center of your head. Try to perceive how your throat feels, and the softness of the tissues that surrounds it.
If this does not work out the first few times, just keep imagining, enjoy this game and you’ll already notice the sensations that go with it. Once you’re in your throat, go back to your head. Imagine that ball that is your consciousness rising up from that conduit until it reaches its place in the pineal gland. Do you notice any difference now with the environment that surrounds you? Now you are no longer in your throat but in the center of your head, the environment is different, the tissues, the bones, the sensation is different, can you perceive it?
A little practice
Take this tour as many times as you want, until you can really feel how your awareness and your inner vision change from head to throat. And if you feel comfortable, try to go further. Send your consciousness to your hand, to that hand that you have felt before, and now try to be and perceive the world from within your hand. Make the ball go down your throat from your shoulder, your arms to your hand, and try to see if you can tell the difference. Back towards the head, stand again in the throat as a point of reference, and go back into your pineal gland.
This exercise is fantastic to learn to move our inner consciousness, throughout the body, not only to focus our attention on a part of it, but to be inside that part of it.
