Ok 3 weeks since I last posted, so much for planing to post each week!
Well the book turned up!
It was interesting to swap notes with Eric on his use of some the hallucinogenics. Edgar Kervals contribution is like most grimoires, some practical work - some not and some stuff you’d like to do and some you don’t. To be filed under “catch up and try at a later date”…
Most of my effort recently has been trying to improve the quality of my meditations. There’s been mixed results, a slight improvement when sitting on on the floor but the most improvement has been when I’ve been in my chair. I have a sun lounger chair (!) which is long enough to take the whole length (i.e. my legs rest on the end of the chair so I don’t have to pull up my legs). Add on a memory foam head pillow, back side pillow and back rest an you have a very, very comfortable chair.
I’ve also anchored to my left thumb and forefinger the “quiet mind” hypnosis tape and on my right I have the theta state. Combine these all together and you have a very powerful deep state trance experience. I’m literally drifting between the liminal worlds of deep sleep and the delta state of unconciousness. It can be a bit exhausting and tiring (natch because I nearly did sleep) but it did produce on the odd occasion a feeling of deep and profound inner quietness. It felt that I actually got passed the superficial me of this world constant distractions and stimulation and found a part of my true inner self. It was fleeting but very powerful. Something to investigate much further!
