- My sense is that the most important thing for developing
"higher sensory perception" is self-honesty
and self-perception. I
think all of us expect others to be reasonably honest about their
own limitations, so we must also do this. By current
cultural standards you might want to call this brutal self-honesty. In order to see things in others you must be able to see things in
- One of my favorite, not entirely smart ass, sayings is "May
your life be filled with people in many ways like yourself."
- I think that this is also very important because perception of
others is so reliant on projection
and reception of what returns. In order to be better at
sorting out the source of the signals and what they mean, one
definitely needs to know one's self. THOROUGHLY!
- Projection actually shows on the astral. A few people have
gotten to see themselves doing it rather excessively around
me. It can be quite astounding how much some people ignore
that what they actually see in others comes almost completely from
within them for one reason or another.
- This self honesty is a two edged sword...it also serves to protect
others and give one more of a sense of proportion when seeing things
- Another major blinding influence is
selfish neediness. Looking outside to get things you wouldn't
have others get from you.
- At a more simple level,
false causalities can create blind spots.
A New Jersey example: many people perceive posturing on and off an
athletic court/field as a real predictor of ability, and therefore
- There are many senses in the subtle bodies. At least touch, smell,
sight, hearing and taste.
- Touch becomes very broad. You can touch/see someone that is behind
you or even in another room that you cannot see with your physical
eyes and know many things about them, particularly if they are
experiencing strong emotions such as hostility.
- All development needs to be as penetrating, unfragmented,
unlayered and strong as possible. It is not enough to memorize words
or exert self control, in fact these things can be quite a barrier
especially if someone overuses them. It is all about quality of flow
and quality of actions and reactions.
- Techniques such as Yoga and Chi Kung are very helpful. They are
tried and true. But my experience is that you are very likely to
find authorities somewhat fixated on their particular techniques. My
sense is that since we live in times that try to put everything in
mechanical terms therefore mechanical techniques have attained
primacy. While I consider them to be very helpful, I think that
developing strong, connected and penetrating character is far more
- While I know it is currently "unacceptable" in academia
to explicitly bring God/Holy Spirit into the discussion, you are a
fool if you don't. There is no better teacher, mirror, guide,
advocate, wrestling opponent/partner, challenger, healer...
- When dealing with the Great/ Holy Spirit as with anyone, trust is a
two way street. You will be able to trust the Spirit more as the
Spirit can trust you more.
- It is very important to be able to listen. My sense is that we
hear the Great/ Holy Spirit
as well as we hear anyone who disagrees
- Now that I've had some say about these issues I'd like to get you to
consider investigating the following links for
some exercises and for
internal sensing. These are
intended to give a different type of background and relate some of my
own experiences and things that work for me.
