Thought I’d share this with you guys.
A few years ago, I got a bunch of foam earplugs (off Amazon) for like 12$. I still have 5 pairs, so it’s cost effective. The brand and model happened to be “Hearos 33”. The 33 is significant, because that’s 33 decibels of noise reduction. I chose these on purpose. They aren’t perfect, but they will remove all typical household noises from your hearing.
Follow the instructions, and after a few minutes once the foam has expanded in your ear canal, you are good to go! Close your eyes and sit comfortably. Blank yourself as much as possible. Let go. Peer into the visual noise your eyes are still pumping into your brain. Follow it like a zooming in on a picture. Pay attention to the sounds you hear. Don’t control it! This is goal-less, unguided meditation. (Until you ‘get it’, then do what you want.)
For me, after 20 minutes of hearing my internal noises I started hearing faint voices, conversations, music and all sorts of fun stuff. Part of it must be hallucinations brought on by sudden sensory deprivation. I started seeing things too.
Thing is, some pretty vivid experiences occurred as well, and I still practice this once per week. It’s an excellent way to quiet the mind and truly listen to what’s going on inside yourself. (Well for those of us who don’t have room for a sensory deprivation tank.)
… and then of course, there are the divination and soul travel aspects of it all, but that’s for YOU to explore.
