Think about the chiropractor analogy:
Some people are naturally relaxed around chiropractors, and have full belief in the chiropractic science, and the operator of that science. So they can say hello, lie down and get a very comprehensive spinal alignment that can be heard across the room. Walking out with what they came for in less than 5 minutes.
The larger percentage of clients, for a myriad of natural reasons, need to go through an elaborate series of relaxation techniques for sometimes over an hour (massage, reiki and various other modalities) to prepare for that 5 minutes on the table. Otherwise their would be internal resistance to the adjustments.
How this relates:
Much like EAs directives to engage in extensive energy body work prior to attempting soul travel, in the course of the same name. Sometimes you may need to stack the deck to get fully prepared for your ritual. There are many ways.
I personally do a combination of very hot shower, washing and rinsing full body 3x. With aura cleaning intent.
I prepare my space.
I then I use some energy healing techniques and qigong to get my energy body primed, clearing any blockages correcting chakra flow.
I then turn on some of the some of the music as reccomended above.
I use mantra as I listen to get my self just absolutely in the proper mental state…
(It will require practice to stay in or stay close to it as you transition, it is vital you are not disturbed during this time)
This takes an hour give or take. Then its go time…
I should also add that while this is unnecessary for me to get into state these days, i still do it ritually as I prefer the intensity of it. (After the state is repeatedly found, the next goal should be to anchor this “zone state” to a word/musta)
