Opening to Energy with Entheogens
The basic truth that each individual human being is God in a body, yet most are largely unaware of this fact and even if "believed," is still not practically understood, necessitates a methodology for discovering, accepting, and embodying this fundamental truth of our existence.
Given that God is an energy being, to be able to fully experience oneself as God means that one must learn to process, perceive, experience, and learn to work with the true energy of ones being. Religious and spiritual traditions have developed various methods for deepening ones perception and awareness of oneself, and have even developed energetic methodologies and teachings. The problem is that these teachings almost inevitably involve concepts of "subtle" energy, "subtle bodies," and unseen, mystical forces. These teachings are also wrapped in complex symbolism, mythology, and esoteric systems of personal "liberation," often pointing to the "true reality" as being anywhere but the actual reality that we all collectively inhabit on planet Earth.
For example, in Eastern traditions such as Buddhism and Hinduism, there is the teaching of the "chakra" system: a series of "invisible" energy centers both within and outside of our physical bodies. Practitioners are taught how to "visualize" and "access" these energy centers. While producing energetic experiences, this is ultimately an imaginary system. No scientist or doctor will ever be able to find or detect your chakras because they don't exist. Furthermore, these energetic teachings are based in a belief system of reincarnation and the need for ultimate "liberation" from this process of death and rebirth. This is an entirely erroneous concept as each living being is already God. There is only one being, so concepts of personal reincarnation are baseless and illusory.
Shamanic energy work does not fare any better. While many shamans work directly with energy, they also work with dis-incarnate entities, spirits, and "other worlds." Though effective, to some extent, working with spirits is ultimately working with illusions and projections in the Divine Imagination (explained below). Remember: the Entheological Paradigm teaches that all biological, living beings are God - they do not have "spirits" and there are no other "realms" with "living" beings in non-biological forms.
So how can one encounter ones energy and learn to work with it unburdened by imaginary belief systems and illusions?
The answer is simple: entheogens.
Entheogens are "substances that generate the experience of God within." Many religions and shamanic traditions have made use of entheogens, but the methodology of the Entheological Paradigm is unique from these previous entheogenic practices and therefore presents a new system of direct, immediate experience to humanity.
Direct and Immediate Clarity
5-MeO-DMT, a natural neurotransmitter that is found in every mammal and every human, has played an important role in both mammalian evolution and human consciousness. Present in the human nervous system, this neurotransmitter regulates the human ability to perceive and experience extremely fine levels of energetic vibrations. When small amounts (10-20 mg) of this crystalline compound is consumed from an outside source, it produces an almost instantaneous shift in ability to perceive and experience energy. The experience of energy is so profound, in fact, that it almost demands a full surrender of the ego, releasing the individual into a fully expanded energetic state, if the individual can choose to completely let go. It is highly significant to recognize that "letting go" completely into ones energy is always a matter of free choice. It is always possible for resistant individuals to attempt to "keep a grip" on their illusions and structured sense of self, unwilling to release the death grip of the ego on ones personal perspective.
The radical and immediate perceptual shift afforded by ingestion of 5-MeO-DMT is incomparable to any other method or tool available to humanity. For those who are ready to accept what they experience, it is the greatest possible clarity into the true nature of ones being. It is direct, immediate, and obviously the fundamental nature of reality and ones being. it is the fullest energetic experience of being God in a body that humans are capable of achieving.
Traditional meditation and energetic practices as taught by religions and spiritual traditions are of a far lower order of magnitude than the 5-MeO-DMT experience. While "mystical" experiences of "union" with God have been known throughout history, the full energetic opening occasioned by ingestion of 5-MeO-DMT is a direct and immediate immersion in full energetic reality that is incomparable in nature and perfect clarity.
Given that 5-MeO-DMT is a compound that anyone could potentially consume for their own personal exploration and self-transcendence, it renders religious and spiritual traditions obsolete. Every human being already is God: they just need a crystal key to unlock their ability to perceive and experience themselves as such. Spiritual paths and religious dogmas are simply no longer relevant.
Working With the Medicines
There are a variety other entheogenic compounds that allow for direct openings to ones genuine energy. 5-MeO-DMT provides the fullest, most expanded experience, but DMT follows a close second. For the most rewarding and productive entheogenic work, these are the two compounds that are most useful for human development. Both are natural human neurotransmitters and therefore, while occasioning deeply expanded experiences of great complexity and beauty, are very natural for human use as there is nothing "foreign" about their chemistry. In fact, they are among the few compounds that are so readily accepted by our brains that they almost instantly cross the blood/brain barrier when consumed.
Working with entheogens is a unique methodology that, if used properly, can achieve the following results for dedicated individuals:
Removal of energetic blocks and patterns of resistance
Transcend the ego and habitual patterns of behavior and thought
Purge energy stored from fear, judgment, illusion
Release attachment to illusory beliefs and self-created delusions
Expand fully into ones true energetic state
Perceive and experience the fundamental energetic unity of all things
Perceive and experience the fundamental unity of all life and consciousness
Heal traumatic experiences and release energetic residue
Achieve personal clarity into ones true nature
Take responsibility for all of ones choices
Understand the nature of free will and conscious choice
Discover ones true energetic core
Learn authentic expression and speaking in absolute truth
Harmonize ones inner relationship with oneself and thereby all beings
Liberation from all personal imaginary limitations
The above benefits are achieved when individuals relax completely into their experience. It is best for individuals to keep their postures energetically open in order to experience the most relaxed state. This means lying back with legs slightly open and knees slightly bent. Arms should be kept at the sides with palms up and hands open. This posture communicates "I am open and willing to receive whatever comes during my experience."
Unlike mystical and shamanic traditions that teach that ones consciousness can enter into other planes of existence and communicate with mysterious, mystical spirits and beings, the Entheological Paradigm holds that all such experiences are best understood as manifestations of the Divine Imagination. The Divine Imagination is an energetic state of perception and experience that is ultimately a mirror reflection of the individual's perspective. The Divine Imagination is like an interactive, multi-dimensional virtual reality that is projected from our own energy and there is nothing within it that is not the self, in some form or another. It is a highly sophisticated, interactive mirror.
The clearest experiences of the Divine Imagination occur with high-level entheogenic experiences where the fundamental, underlying energy of reality is perceived and experienced directly as the self. This is the clearest reflection in the mirror of the Divine Imagination. At high levels of DMT, for example, individuals experience themselves as startlingly complex arrays of intricate geometric patterns, grids, and energetic architecture. This is a clear reflection of our fractal/geometric energetic natures as the One Energy Being: God.
However, since it is an imaginative experience, the fundamental energetic geometry can appear to one in any variety of forms from entities to landscapes, complex architecture, scenes and vistas, and encounters with seemingly very real beings. Many of these visionary experiences can be very revealing to individuals, especially when they are appreciated for what they are: reflections of the self.
Part of the process of working with entheogens for the purpose of full energetic awakening is learning to accept all that one experiences as manifestations of the self, no matter how "other" or alien the experiences may seem. The simple truth is that for one who is clear and centered in their energy, not even the strongest entheogen can remove them from being immediately present and focused. Those who know who and what they are are not caught by illusions or flights of thought.
Working in an Ego-Suspended State
When sufficient quantities of entheogens are consumed so that the practitioner can reach a "full release" state, the ego can be transcended. The ultimate goal of practice is to learn to maintain your center in an ego-transcended state and fully present at all times, not just when working with entheogens. But learning what this actually means takes time and practice with the medicines. Because operating from a fully energetically open state is so fundamentally distinct from "normal" human action and interaction, it must first be learned with the assistance of the entheogenic medicines. Once one is sufficiently familiar with the practice and the experiential state of being liberated from the ego, then full integration of the experience with everyday life and consciousness becomes possible. When this is achieved, a person has successfully self-liberated themselves from the confines of their ego and are able to live in the energetic truth of reality.
Entheogenic experiences can be described as an arc of ego transcendence, which takes its most dramatic form when working with powerful tryptamines such as DMT and 5-MeO-DMT. In the first few instants, the ego has the choice to struggle to hold on, or release in surrender and trust. If the ego fails to release, it will use whatever "tricks" have served it best to keep the individual's consciousness locked into self-projection. Some will use fear, others "thinking too much." The ego will grasp at whatever tools it has found useful in the past.
When the ego lets go, however, the individual enters into an open energetic state. At this point individuals generally begin to be moved by their authentic energy. If they need to release deep energy, they may purge, scream, cry, or any other similar, forceful manner of releasing. It is quite common for individuals to find many subsequent layers of energy to release and let go of.
Resisting the flow of energy can create vibrations throughout the body. When this occurs, they can be minimized by consciously relaxing and returning to the open body posture described above. Vibrations can also serve to clear out blocks in the body and open up areas in your being where current might be weak or constricted.
When individuals are truly relaxed and centered, they begin to move spontaneously in mirrored symmetrical movements that coincide with the bilateral symmetry of their bodies. In such states individuals always maintain a center line down the middle of their body such that their two hands might meet together, but hands will not cross to the opposite side of the body.
Many individuals also begin to spontaneously vocalize. The purest forms of vocalizations in such states are generally pure tones, throat and overtone singing, and other vibratory noises. Glossolalia, or "speaking in tongues," is generally a sign that someone is trying too hard and their ego is intervening.
Eventually the ego will begin to reassert itself and an individual might find themselves asking themselves what it is that they are doing or why they are moving about and making the sounds that they are. These are the first glimmers of egoic self-consciousness. If one chooses, one can continue to let go of the ego at this point and continue the experience. This is a learned skill, however, and generally as soon as the ego can reassert itself, it will and the individual will return to "normal" egoic consciousness.
The goal of such practices is to allow the individual to learn to recognize and trust their own innate energy. In the entheogenic state, they will feel "inspired" by their energy. They will learn how it directs their body, their thoughts, their feelings and their very life. They can then learn to recognize how the choices they make, especially how they choose to react to situations and events and in their relationships with others and themselves, bring them either into or out of alignment with their innate flow of energy.
What this fundamentally boils down to is learning how to live in the truth of your genuine energy. One then learns how to be responsible for oneself - the only person anyone can ever truly be responsible for. One learns to how be truthful with themselves and with all aspects of their life, bringing them into greater and greater harmony with their highest express of themselves as an embodiment of the One Being.
