Blog-Buddies, I’m so glad to be explaining this last chunk of great importance to those of us who limit our Technique Time to 20 Daily Minutes, Tops. As described in yesterday’s article.
What is Technique Time? It’s all about voluntary positioning of consciousness.
During Technique Time a person positions awareness away from objective reality or surface thoughts and feelings… in order to improve himself or herself.
It’s a movement away from human vibrational frequencies towards Divine vibrational frequencies or — most commonly — the person winds up with awareness positioned squarely at astral vibrational frequencies.
Here are 11 things that could happen during a 24-hour period. None of them would count as your official Technique Time.
Notice the reasons given, however. Each of these exceptions is being named in a context, or a manner of doing a particular activity.
Technique Time Exception #1: Let’s Hear It for Insomnia
All that happens between going to bed for the night and getting out of bed to begin your new day….
If you have insomnia, that could be your lucky opportunity. Because you can pray or visualize or do whatever spiritual activity you like to your heart’s content.
In terms of states of consciousness, you’re moving in and out of waking/sleeping/dreaming. Enjoy that potentially glorious time!
Technique Time Exception #2: A Quick Prayer Before You Eat
Saying grace. That’s just a formality, right.
You don’t have to vibe out the food or read the aura of every single green bean.
Although if you do, oopsie, that DOES count as Technique Time.
Technique Time Exception #3: When You Bow Down to Mecca, etc.
Ritual prayers, as in Islam or Orthodox Judaism, do not have to be bare-your-soul and offer up everything before Allah, G-D, etc.
Or maybe you’re attending a Meeting of Friends. That’s an hour, mostly in silence. And according to Quaker custom, mostly with eyes closed.
If clairaudience is one of your gifts for reading auras, right on the surface of sound you will hear the glorious Divine chorus right there with you, most undramatically, right in the room. Still, that doesn’t mean it is necessary to position your consciousness away from human vibrational frequencies.
It’s up to you, how much of that time you will choose to use as your Technique Time.
Otherwise, go through the motions. Literally say and do what is required. You do not have to feel a special otherworldy something.
None of these practices was developed after the Age of Aquarius. Five minutes of Technique Time now is worth so much more energetically, compared with back in the day. If other people are closing their eyes, you still don’t have to. Maybe open your eyes a crack, to remind yourself not to go tripping around in consciousness.
Technique Time Exception #4: “Let us pray”
Public prayers, as in a church service — does that mean you are obligated to move around in your consciousness? I think not.
“Let us pray” goes the minister. Inwardly, you may go, “Oboy, now I’m in for a long speech.” 😉
Even if you love the words being spoken, don’t confuse that with Technique Time. Or a personal prayer to God, which is NOT done in public. Real prayer, sure, do some of that during Technique Time, if you like.
By contrast, what is happening during a service of worship. Or a “Prayer Breakfast”?
You ARE, with all respect, listening to somebody’s beautiful speech or reading. Again, to make the distinction clear, you might keep your eyes open just a sliver.
Technique Time Exception #5: Workaround for Energy-Based Exercise
Yoga or tai chi or Qigong — they’re so great! Sure, use some of your Technique Time for that if you like.
Otherwise, during your class or daily practice at home, you can shallow up.
Just get into the posture and take it as a form of sacred exercise.
In this Age of Aquarius, you will receive some of the benefit. As a bigger benefit, you won’t slip-slide into Spiritual Addiction.
So you will stay in better balance energetically. Plus you will move forward faster on your personal path to Enlightenment.
And wasn’t that kind of thing the point, actually?
Technique Time Exception #6: Workaround While Healing with Energy
Doing an energy medicine routine, or keeping your hands on a client while doing Reiki. Well, so what?
In the old days, you had to keep paying attention in order for these healing techniques to work. Now they work just fine while you go through the motions.
Because, Lucky You, you’re living in the Age of Aquarius.
What if you’re doing Reiki Level II and you’re supposed to be having a conversation with that person’s subconscious mind? You Reiki experts can find a workaround, similar to what I described yesterday. Maybe one minute for assessment and one minute for chatting with your client’s subconscious mind.
Enough already! Your efficacy as a healer depends most on your own balance.
Healers who live in Spiritual Addiction are way less effective than well-balanced healers with skills, folks who happen to live in human-based spirituality.
Technique Time Exception #7: Right After an Away Moment
Away moments. We have discussed here: How you come back from away moments.
That matters, even thought the Away Moment itself doesn’t count as Technique Time while you’re daydreaming.
Yes, Technique Time only begins after you have a choice. Like if you decide you would rather keep replaying that aggravating mishap with your ex. Or whatever.
(BTW, some sessions of aura healing and transformation can help anybody to live more in the present. Many away moments are really caused by STUFF. And, as you may know, STUFF can always, always, always be healed.)
Technique Time Exception #8: Enjoy This Easy Way to Avoid Tripping Around in Your Subconscious Mind
You can avoid Technique Time by physically making a list. Or by speaking out loud. Pull out your moblie phone and use it for stealth! Whether you are talking to yourself or to God, as soon as you move your physical body to write or speak aloud, you automatically position consciousness in human frequencies. Buh-bye excessive Technique Time….
Technique Time Exception #9. Playing Peek a Boo with God
Spontaneously noticing the presence of God? Well, of course, tht can happen.
God plays peek-a-boo with us constantly.
- In the silence.
- In the air.
- In anyone who isn’t you.
- In yourself.
That ain’t Technique Time, folks. Because you’re not trying to make it happen. No positioning of consciousness away from the surface of life.
Just like you might notice your knee. Well, “Hello God.”
That is an experience of unfolding consciousness, perfectly normal. By keeping your life in human-based spirituality, this sort of thing will occur sooner rather than later.
Enlightenment is a version of the waking state of consciousness, right? It is different from becoming so obsessed with improving yourself that you’re constantly muttering, whirling, etc. (See examples of the latter towards the end of my novel for empaths, “The Roar of the Huntids.”)
Technique Time Exception #10. Your Sense of Self in Enlightenment
Shifts to your personal identity, with the Divine peeking through — that’s not trying to cram in extra working on yourself.
That’s called “Enlightenment,” not Technique Time.
Technique Time Exception #11: The Occasional Request to Your Favorite Form of the Divine
Thinking or saying an occasional request to God during your day? Don’t count that as Technique Time.
Just avoid getting into the habit of making God into the loveable sidekick in your daily inner TV show, constantly being consulted.
It’s common sense, right? Save this special chit-chat for something important, not incessant whining and begging, for heaven’s sake.
Incidentally, discussing this distinction is one of my favorite chapters in my daybook for spiritual development, Enlightenment Coaching as it were, “Let Today Be a Holiday,” a.k.a. “365 Ways to a Stronger You.”
Of course you can live this consciousness lifestyle, Blog-Buddies.
Dare to be counter-culture.
Dare to live in a Post-New Age manner.
Dare to be human, and position your consciousness accordingly. Being human is no disability, you know. It’s an immense opportunity, especially for those of us with the privilege who are pioneers of this new Age of Aquarius.
