Allowing the Energy to Flow
As the shamanic radio begins to work, you and each part of you, are now an element in a larger
circuit, a circuit which flows from "out there" and returns to "out
there" but which also has an inner flow. The energy flows in spirals through your
shamanic circle and is the raw stuff out of which the invocation will be performed, taking
shape in some form of transmission. But if the energy gets blocked along the way, the
spirals stop and the transmission is aborted. So we must make sure that the flow continues
through the blocks that will inevitable occur.
The basic task here is twofold: to identify the blocks as they occur
and to surpass them somehow, without destroying the invocation in the process. This
requires a lot of sublety and imagination. There can be no firm rules as to how to do
this. Sometimes a sudden catastrophic change will push the energy through the block but
sometimes that sudden change will bring the whole process to a grinding halt! Other times
a subtle alteration in direction will maneuver the energy around the block, but the block
may be too stubborn for such subtlety...
The only way to truly learn this is to be a part of a group, and
ultimately, a group will have to be formed in order for the shamanic radio to come into
existence. But if at this time you have no group and you need to begin this process on
your own, the basic elements of this challenge can still be grasped through solo
experiments that will give you a foothold into the territory that lies ahead. In order to
work in this area on your own, we will explore further a "solo circuit" that we
have already explored in other experiments. Your group will exist in the fourth dimension:
time. There will be seven of you: one for each day of the week. "Monday You",
"Tuesday You", etc. You don't have to use the days of the week for names, in
fact it would be a nice twist to give each "you" a very particular name, but do
make sure that you know which day of the week goes with each you. This four dimensional
group will form the basis for several experiments that will help you to explore you
abilities and enhance them.
Now we will begin to form this four dimensional group in much the
same way that a three dimensional group is formed: by calling roll.
Solo Experiment 1: Calling Roll
- Begin on Monday. Set aside a few minutes in the morning, before your
"day" actually begins, to do this small experiment.
- Stand quietly in front of the mirror. Establish contact with your
image in the mirror. Vision diffused and attention centered.
- Say out loud to the image. "Monday _____ " (your name
replaces the blank or the whole address is replaced by the specific name that you have
selected for "monday you"), are you present?"
- Allow the image to answer: "I am Monday ______ and I am
- Repeat this simple process a total of three times then stop. Take a
few breaths and the experiment is finished.
- Repeat the same process each morning with each "you" that
is going to be invoked. Do this for one to three weeks, then proceed to the next
Solo Experiment 2: Being silent and being
Begin on Monday. Stand in front of the mirror and
breathe quietly as you establish contact with "Monday You". When you ascertain
that you have contact, sing a loud "DO". Make sure to maintain the contact as
On Tuesday follow the same process but sing a medium
On Wednesday follow the same process but sing a soft
"MI". Now, while still maintining contact, use the same energy that you used for
singing and be simply quiet. The silence should be palpitating with the same amount of
energy as the singing.
On Thursday sing a loud "FA". After singing
say quietly to the mirror, "I am Thursday Me and I am reborn out of the ashes of what
was lost on Wednesday."
On Friday sing a medium volume "SOL".
On Saturday sing a soft "LA".
On Sunday sing a barely audible "SI". After
singing say quietly to the mirror, the other "you": "I am now ready to die.
I will leave quietly and silently. Someone else will be here tomorrow." Then manifest
10 solid minutes of silence... intense and pregnant silence.
Repeat the whole cycle for 3 to 7 weeks.
Can you hear the others singing? Can you feel your place in the circle? Can you be quiet
when it's time to be quiet and loud when it's time to be loud?
Stand in a circle, each one with hands down at your
Start music that will last approximately 10 to 20
Everyone closes their eyes and listens to the music
for a space of time.
When one of you feels the time is right, move your
left hand and rhythmically touch the right hand of the person standing to your left.
The one on the left takes the energy, allowing it to
rhythmically flow through and then releases it to the left by touching the person to the
Allow the energy to flow in this way through the
circle, trying to maintain a rhythmic relation to the music as much as possible.
When the music stops everyone takes 3 deep breaths
and keeps their eyes closed for a short space of time.
Allowing the energy to flow Any block stops the whole circuit
Any part of the circuit can stop its flow, when you feel the flow
waning start a new proposal and push it through, being conscious of the precense of the
energy and your relationship to its flow, connecting with others means letting go of
yourself, being ridiculous is good for you!
