Combining Contemplation and Dreams

Combining Contemplation and Dreams

A simple method of moving into the higher states of awareness is to combine contemplation and dreams. Find a quiet place for contemplation.

For a period of fifteen or twenty minutes a day, shut your eyes and put attention upon your Spiritual Eye. This is the spiritual organ of inner vision. It sits between the eyebrows, about an inch and a half in.

Look gently at an imaginary screen between the eyebrows and softly begin to sing JesusGodHU, or MahantaWah Z is also acceptable.

Look for a Blue Light upon the inner screen. This is the Light of God. There may not be this Light, but you may hear a Sound. The Sound is the other manifestation of the ECK, or Holy Spirit. It can be almost any sound of nature or musical instrument that you can imagine. The Light and Sound, when they appear, are assurance of your contact with the Word of God.

The second part of this exercise is for the dream state. Prepare for sleep by singing one of the words given above. This is to set into motion an affinity with the Sound Current, the Holy Spirit. For a few minutes, sing the word you have chosen. When you are ready for sleep, imagine that you are walking in a park or watching a quiet sunset with someone you love. A loved one can open our heart and dispel any fear. Love is necessary if one is to enter the awakened dream state.

Finally, keep a diary of whatever comes to mind in contemplation or during your dream state. A mutual confidence will develop between your inner and outer selves, and the two techniques above will help accomplish that.

This is a good way to start the dream teachings of ECK.
