FAQ’s is a list of frequently asked questions that our clients have asked to learn more about the College of Esoteric Education and its courses.
WHAT IS MEDITATION?
Meditation is an adventure into the unknown; basic meditation is not doing anything except going beyond the chatter of the conscious mind and initially delighting in the freedom from thought and emotion. When you achieve this, you actually tap into the glue of the universe which we term love. It is the love that holds the universe together. When you get to this point, you tap into just being. Once you become aware of this state of being, you can remain undisturbed while resting for a period of time or you can remain in this state even while being engaged in other things. This form of meditation teaches you a new way of living; a way of being totally undisturbed even in the centre of chaos. This form of meditation is called being centered. You can be doing other things without losing your feeling of centeredness.
This form of meditation is usually used to allow you to feel calm and relaxed. It also gives you the opportunity to release physical and mental stress. You can also learn to watch your thoughts and the emotions they provoke objectively. When you learn to remain in this state, you will begin to enjoy a different state of awareness. This is the most basic form of meditation.
WHAT IS THE SILENCE EXPERIENCED IN MEDITATION?
A lot of people consider silence to be a frightening experience, an absence of sound; and so they will fill their ears with music, the tv, video games, the radio, MP3s etc. This unfortunate misconception comes about because most people have never experienced the silence – but silence is not emptiness – it is the silence of the outer material world, yes, it is not something artificial, but a different reality that is present in everyone, but most never tune into it because they never look inside themselves. The eternal silence at the heart of your being is the soundless music of the spheres, permeated with the fragrance of angels. If you can sit in the silence of your own being, you will experience truth, beauty, love and goodness as your inner senses are realigned to a different reality.
WHAT TYPE OF MEDITATION DO YOU TEACH?
The channelled meditation program is being taught as a return path back to the Creative Source or the Creator God. It is not a passive form of meditation as mentioned above, but includes it as a state required to travel the meditative path which is quite dynamic in its application. The journey back has the capacity to lead you to self-mastery as faculties are gently awakened as a result of traversing the various inner realms.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THIS TYPE OF MEDITATION?
As the meditation is followed as instructed, the quality of life is enhanced through the depth and intensity of the newly awakened senses. Physical health, emotional stability, mental clarity, self-confidence and spiritual awareness are some of the many benefits attested to by students of the path. It will also help you improve your relationships with others, make you more tolerant, and allow you to lead a less stressful life.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS TYPE OF MEDITATION?
The purpose of this type of meditation as taught by the College, is to assist you in balancing the different functions of your existence, namely, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. This then equips you to experience the soul-merge and to begin to express certain abilities in your daily life. Levels beyond the soul-merge expand those capabilities exponentially.
WHAT TYPE OF PEOPLE ATTEND THE PRIVATE MEDITATION?
Seekers come from all walks of life and from diverse backgrounds and occupations including students, office workers, business owners, artists, nurses, dancers, singers, tradesmen, and other professionals.
DO I HAVE TO SIT CROSSED LEGGED ON THE FLOOR?
No. Meditation is taught in a comfortable reclining position so that the energies can channel correctly through the full length of the body.
DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING TO THE PRIVATE SESSIONS?
It is not necessary to bring anything to the private sessions, but it is advisable to wear loose, comfortable clothing.
HOW IS THE PRIVATE MEDITATION TAUGHT?
The meditation is passed by the attunement process and is taught individually in a relaxed atmosphere as you are guided along a structured path by one who has travelled that path back through the creative energies before and who can therefore help you to overcome any difficulties should they arise.
ARE SPECIAL ABILITIES NEEDED TO LEARN THE MEDITATION?
No. It needs the ability for a gentle concentration only, following structured and instructed guidelines. No prior experience or special techniques are required.
IS ANY CHAKRA WORK DONE?
Yes. The force centres or chakras are cleansed and cleared which allows a gentle activation to the level required. As the meditation progresses, so too do the charkas continue to gently open. This is both felt and seen. More than the normal seven chakras are cleansed, cleared and opened to the required level, providing a feeling of balance and well-being physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
IS ANY CONNECTION MADE WITH THE HIGHER SELF?
Most definitely! This form of meditation teaches a beautiful way back to that lost communication with what is commonly termed the Higher Self; and the aim of that communication or communion is to ultimately merge with the highest aspect of inner being, allowing latent abilities to flower that can be used in everyday living.
HOW LONG DOES THE MEDITATION TAKE?
The individual supervision allows you to progress at your own rate, there is no set time for the completion of the meditative path and as there is no competition between students, a relaxed, peaceful and healthy atmosphere is able to be maintained at all times.
DO ANY CHANGES OCCUR IN CONSCIOUSNESS?
The goal is to awaken yourself spiritually through increased awareness of yourself and the energies you carry. All change occurs within the self firstly, then in your outer circumstances. Abilities that have lain dormant begin to awaken causing changes in consciousness and awareness and this does have an effect, naturally, through your outer circumstances. However, all changes are usually gentle and gradual as transformation occurs.
WHAT IS THE ANCIENT WISDOM?
These teachings include many branches of wisdom that have previously been taught on the planet in the Ancient Mystery Schools. When the planet was originally formed, all available knowledge necessary for the fulfillment of the plan of our planet was formed with it and held in the ethers until such times as was needed. This knowledge was taught aforetimes, and is therefore considered ancient. However, it comes anew with each new cycle to assist humanity take its next evolutionary step. At present, there are a limited number of teachers with vast teaching experience who are able to teach and guide others through the many diverse levels of this particular form of meditation.
WHAT TYPE OF PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN THE HOME STUDY COURSE?
