When you think about it, alchemy is a lot of things, but transmuting the mind and the world around you is something everyone has to do on this path.
Yberion taught me tummo breath, or something like that. Burning. I see that my power to do this has gotten stronger since I last tried it. But why?
My only theories are that I’m breaking the illusion of my thoughts or I know how to change the world around me more accurately, as one would a dream.
How do I make this stronger? Change the illusion. Which reminds me of a certain exercise.
Sitting within the black sun, we trick our minds into thinking we’re invincible because we survive in such a hostile environment. I think that Koetting saying this was a trick. See, this wouldn’t work unless he said this. He tricked our minds into making us think we can trick our minds like this. Once you realize this, you can trick your own mind.
I will be making my arms as ice. The more cold they get, the more my mind is “tricked” into thinking it can make it colder, which makes it colder, making a feedback loop of growth.
This has worked to far, the cold vapors touching my lips. An exercise that only grows in effectiveness across the minutes. This is one of my first experiments in practicing moving my life as a dream. The more results I get, the more I “trick” my mind into thinking I can do it even better.
This is going to be a thread where I post similar experiements. Feel free to follow along with me and post your results.
