How to Expand Awareness


What does it mean in a practical sense to expand our awareness? We can observe how we use our energies during our day; the way we treat people, people’s responses to us, how we impact on our environment and how the environment impacts upon us.

It might also be interesting to look at how we are using our energy. Are we looking for all the ways that we are sharing energies and trying to express them most powerfully from the deepest place within? Does our look have love? What kind of energy do our words carry? Have we ever thought about the kind of energy our hands carry? What about the energy of our thoughts?

When we become more aware of our soul’s identity, we begin to realise that we are beings of light, beings of energy, and there is more in terms of communication – that we do not communicate with words only,  we communicate with the power of intentions.  Just to intend or to think about something, energy is already in motion.  Just the intention to love channels love.  We may start to feel the energies of people,  to pick up the energies of ideas  around us and we relate to our world differently – this is energy awareness.


Meditation on Subtle Body

wild-flowers-flowers-plant-macro-40797.jpegLet us bring the attention into the present moment. The goal is to come into awareness of our subtle Self, our energy being that lies within the gross body, and to really wake up to that identity that we have of subtle being.

“Focus on the breath,”  observing how in the breath there is body identity, the breather, breathing in the air and breathing out. Observe that human breathing. Open up your awareness to really observe how the body breathes. Hold the possibility of an energy identity in us, driving that breath, prana and apana.

Stay in breath awareness. Be conscious of the entire out breath, from the moment you begin to push the breath out with your intention, until the out breath is complete. Then pause for a moment and bring the in breath in. Follow that movement of breathing in and breathing out, but in an expanded view.

Stay completely aware of the spinal column and the brain, because you are observing now to wake up in the subtle body, that you can be constantly aware of the Kundalini energy, that evolutionary energy that is working within you. No expectations, no belief system is required because it is already existing within you. It is just that intention to see what we are not seeing.

Keep the focus on bindu awareness

Stay with the breath awareness and focus on that bindu centre between the eyebrows. Each time you breathe out, take your attention down the spinal column, right down to the root of the spine, and as you breathe in, up the spinal column, right up to the back of the neck and centre of the eyebrows. Keep the focus on that bindu awareness because by doing that, you will come into that silent space beyond thoughts.

Stay in the rhythm of the breath. Stay in the energy of the breath as you open up the belly, as you open up the chest, as you breathe with bindu awareness, and observe the experience of total being.

We are following an awakening process. “I want to wake up in this Maya. I want to experience more of who I am.” Hold this intention. Just work the breath intuitively until you begin to feel that the breath has a life of its own. It is energy. Observe what it is doing to the mind, what it is doing to the bindu, what it is doing to the emotional being, the heart, and what it is doing to the vital energy of the body.

Stay with a graceful breath, a gentle breath, a conscious breath, with the longing of the heart to wake up to more of what we are.  Sri Vasudeva Day 14 Forty days 2017. For full talk and meditation go to  www.


Uncovering The Veil of Maya

Our physical senses bring the experience of the gross body and the gross field. Just observe what grossness is; the heaviness of the body, the connection to the earth, the fire in the body, the water in the body the air…the gross elements.

Then observe the field behind the gross; the subtle field. Observe the senses at work. You have the sense of smell,  of taste,  of sight,  of touch, and of hearing. They are related to the elements, so smell and the earth; taste and water; seeing and fire; touching and air; hearing and space.

Then you have that subtle aspect of the senses, where you are hearing not only the physical world, but you are hearing in the subtle world as well; you can hear your thoughts in a subtle sense. You can see inner lights in a subtle sense. You can get divine aromas in a subtle sense. You can taste in a subtle sense.

Observe the mind’s activity

Observe  how the mind is associated with all of these; the subtle experience of the elements and the gross experience of the elements. If we were to create a thought, it would be in the manas nature of the mind. Observe how the reasoning aspect of the mind is being used in a very subtle way to understand what I am saying  and to use the guidance. You are using the intellect; that intelligence function.

Become aware of the Shiva Shakti relationship

Then observe the background consciousness of being. There is a consciousness aspect that is related to all the energies that you are experiencing, and that consciousness energy relationship that you are observing is the Shiva Shakti relationship. It is the field that is conscious of change and involved in change.

Then there is another aspect; a totally independent witness.  Here we are observing the play of Māyā.  When we feel that there is something guiding our actions and our thoughts – and we can feel that something is moving the body, moving the mind, moving the breath; that is Kuṇḍalinī. That is the evolutionary energy that is supporting the created experience, or world, whilst driving the evolutionary process. That is Kuṇḍalinī within you. Sri Vasudeva Day 9 Forty days 2017. For full talk and meditation go to  www.
