One way to leave the body via Soul Travel is to lie down after dinner when you are drowsy. Plan to nap for five minutes, and watch the process of falling asleep. If you try the exercise with your spouse, agree to meet outside the body a few minutes later. Then watch carefully as your mate steps free of the physical body and enters the spiritual one in a burst of radiant light.

One always goes out of the body when he falls asleep, but it is an unconscious act. In Soul Travel, the only difference is that we are trying to get out of the body in full awareness.

The moment Soul leaves the body, It finds Itself in a blue-grey zone near the Physical Plane. This zone is an approach to the Astral Plane. The sensation of moving from the Physical to the Astral body is like slipping through a large iris of mild wind currents; this iris is the Spiritual Eye. Soul enters this neutral zone of blue-grey tones in Its Astral form, a sheath which looks like a thousand sparkling stars.

This buffer zone, or corridor, between the Physical and lower Astral Planes resembles the underground silo of an enormous rocket that is perhaps two hundred feet in diameter and more than two thousand feet deep. The ceiling if this circular pocket is open and may display a brilliant canopy of white light, or you may see a night sky sprinkled with specks of twinkling stars. There may even be a pastoral scene by a river, whose waters murmur their pleasure at life.

Whatever scene is displayed in the opening of the vast ceiling, Soul is drawn toward it at a mighty speed. Most people begin to recall their dreams only after their departure from this launching zone between the two worlds, and after their arrival at a faraway destination on the Astral Plane.

Best Sleeping Techniques for Soul Travel ~ Harold Klemp ~ The Spiritual Exercises of ECK

Best Sleeping Techniques for Soul Travel  There are three main steps to prepare yourself for Soul Travel in the dream state:
  1. Arrange your schedule to get as much sleep as needed to be fresh in the morning.
  2. For a few minutes before sleeping, read from one of the ECK books to signal your intent to pursue spiritual activity during sleep. I recommend The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Book One or Two, or Stranger by the River.
  3. At bedtime contemplate upon the image of the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master. In this spiritual exercise, give an invitation to the Master like this: “I welcome you into my heart as my home. Please enter it with joy.”
Then go to sleep as usual, but leave the eye of Soul alert to the coming of the teacher. Look for me, because I am always with you.—Sri Harold Klemp

Reminder ~ Harold Klemp ~ The Spiritual Exercises of ECK

97557b7a-b99c-4ca1-a476-cc4e30dd999cReminder

If you wish to Soul Travel while you are asleep, remind yourself of this several times during the day. For example, say to yourself, “Tonight I will Soul Travel in my dream.”

Your mind will accept ideas that are repeated more readily than ideas that are not repeated.

Visualize the kind of dream you want to have as though it were already happening. After you have pictured the dream, picture its results. Try playing a movie scene in your mind of how you will feel when you have the advice or help you seek from the Dream Master.

Imaginative Techniques ~ Harold Klemp ~ The Spiritual Exercises of ECK

 

Imaginative Techniques

Harold Klemp eckankar.org
Harold Klemp eckankar.org

Soul Travel occurs in two ways. One form is experienced as the apparent movement of the Soul body through the planes of time and space. It is not really movement, because Soul already exists on all planes. What seems to be movement, or travel, is simply Soul coming into agreement with fixed states and conditions that already exist in the lower worlds.

This explains the imaginative technique for Soul Travel. You imagine a scene, and you are there in the Soul body. It may feel as though you are moving along very quickly, and this is why it is perceived as travel. Actually, it is the process of changing the setting around you.

To practice this, you can take a scene from your memories and control the actions in it. For example, imagine the sea beating against a beach. Now try to see the sea as being as still as lake water. Try it on things you know by stilling or stopping actions.

You may experience a rushing sound, like wind in a tunnel, and the sensation of moving incredibly fast.

The other form of Soul Travel is the expansion of consciousness. This is closer to the state of true personal revelation or enlightenment that we are looking for in ECK.

Bypassing Barriers ~ Harold Klemp ~ Spiritual Exercises of ECK

Bypassing Barriers

To get around barriers on the road to God, an individual must find the Sound and Light, the most certain way to spiritual freedom. A simple contemplative exercise to help one do that is this: At bedtime, shut your eyes and look at a blank screen in your mind. This screen is located at the Spiritual Eye, which is slightly above and behind the eyebrows. Breathe deeply several times, then sing God or HU softly for twenty minutes.

To add variety to your contemplations, look at the letters E-C-K, which signify the Holy Spirit. Whatever name you choose, sing it daily.This word may be sung aloud—or silently, if you do not want to disturb another. It is often enough to mentally invite the Mahanta, the Living ECK Master to give you a Soul Travel experience during sleep. No harm will come to you, for a Soul Traveler of the Far Country is always there to watch over you.

Before contemplation, think of some person you love, or of some happy event. This feeling of love or goodwill is necessary for travel in the Far Country. Soul Travel is the first step to God.

What a Friend in the Creator

Snapshot_20120301What a Friend

we have in the Creator.

Just to trust  Him

at his word.

Oh,  how blessed

to walk in service.

Oh, to be of one accord. 

Often, I forget to trust him

Then the pain

it does increase !

When, finally , I remember

to surrender

Oh, Soul,

the pain

it is released.

Feb 24th, 2011 17:00 on bus from Lethbrdige to Calgary for a visit.   I was invited for five days.  I stayed for closer to five weeks.  This poem,  written on the bus.  was my mantra whilst I visited and learned from family.  After almost 40 years I had been invited for Christmas with the family.  Now I would be there to learn and love again.
