Connecting to Universal Consciousness
In this blog series, we are highlighting the practices that our IONS staff members use to connect to information and energy beyond space and time. The various ways that we individually connect with this type of information make up our unique Noetic Signature™.
This month, Dr. Helané Wahbeh, IONS Director of Research, follows up on her first blog about a meditation technique that brings awareness to the energetic body. This month’s blog includes the first three steps that she explained in Part 1 of this three-part blog — getting present, clearing energy, and getting grounded — and builds on them by incorporating how Dr. Wahbeh often invites in noetic energy from her “trusted sources” for information and guidance by asking a question or setting an intention.
As a reminder, the first three steps of the meditation are detailed below…
Step 1) Getting Present: This first step is about getting very present in the moment, in our mind and our physical and energetic bodies.
Step 2) Clearing Energy: The second step is about clearing and letting go of any energy that doesn’t belong to you and calling in what does.
Step 3) Grounding: The grounding practice is about connecting our energy body to the energy of the earth.
And then, Dr. Wahbeh incorporates…
Step 4) Connecting to Universal Energy: This part of the practice is connecting with noetic energy while continuing to feel grounded and connected to the earth.
Step 5) Asking Your Trusted Sources for Guidance: The fifth step is asking for guidance – noetic information.
With those concepts in mind, to experience these parts of Helané’s energy body meditation, find a comfortable position, take a moment to think about a question you’d like some guidance on. It could be about a decision you are trying to make or something you’d like more information about. As much as possible, keep the question simple or, you can allow the question to come to you during the meditation.
And, before you get started with the meditation, you may want to have some paper and something to write or draw with to integrate the experience after the experience.
Now… when you are ready, press play… [15 min]
Contemplation and Integration
Let’s take a moment to contemplate and integrate your experience… You can write or draw, whatever feels best to you to put on paper in the physical world, the insights that felt most powerful for you in this experience. You might want to create a mental symbol of this journey or recall any images that you received during the meditation, something you can focus on in the coming days, allowing it to work on subconscious levels, and to act as a conduit to further discovery. We’ll take about 1 minute to write or draw what comes up for you now… or you can sit quietly and simply contemplate the experience. And… if you didn’t receive any specific information or energy, that’s totally ok! Remember that this noetic information may come later and allow yourself to be open to it showing up at another time or in another way.
Thank you for joining us for Part 2 of Dr. Wahbeh’s blog series about this energy meditation technique. In Part 3 of Dr. Wahbeh’s blog series, she will explain using muscle testing (or kinesiology) and other practices to help discern whether the information she receives is from her conscious mind or ego or from the larger noetic field of consciousness. If you’d like to explore her work on connecting to noetic information and energy further, you may be interested in her newly released, groundbreaking book The Science of Channeling: Why You Should Trust Your Intuition and Embrace the Force That Connects Us All.
