Give yours the slip dear mortal
from beta to theta unwind....
He said good night and lay down in the little room, door ajar. Was it 30 seconds later that we heard the deep sweet breath of sleep?
Astonished, this 17 year old says, "Wow! I wish I could do that!!" And goes on to describe his inner terrain: I have the hardest time falling asleep; I do my darnedest to settle myself. I have tried everything prior to when I 'should' be getting my sleep, even (mature enough to try!) switching off all electronic media way before bed opting instead to read.
Nothing helps! Thought triggers thought... throughts tag together.., no matter my best efforts. Before you know it, it's thought-to-thought-to-thought. Arrrgh STOP. Temporary halt. And then it's off again; like train carriages, hooked one to another and seeming no end.
That was the conversation. Period.
The following evening was his first Theragem Crystal Light Therapy session. This young man, in perfectly good health, strong, vital, engaged and intelligent, is dreaming his dreams, forging his path as one might expect at his life-stage, given his constellation of circumstances, options and opportunities. The little he has heard about Theragem has piqued his curiosity. Hence we are here.
Sapphire to brain hemispheres; double wands 'Elation' therapy, 20 minutes..
Now may words weave the song of his experience, bearing in mind that Sapphire 'Elation' is trained to both brain hemispheres at theta frequency, and therefore to speak at all during this first 20 minutes does not come readily to most. He did not speak, for some 7 minutes, and then formed his words from the depths; "Totally unique... web of light... but lightly.. not pressing, not pressure.. really nice.. bathing.. wow.. amazing...never felt anything like it."
We had set the intensity at 75%. Ten minutes in, he asked if we could set it at 100%, just for him to make the distinction between those two settings relative to him. We go on to Diamond-Carnelian at 100% for the Spleen. We finish with Emerald to his inner right arm ("slept on it funny").... And, truth be told, sometimes Emerald wants to be in the mix "just because"!
Two days later we are back, for a second round (the right arm now a non-issue and therefore does not feature in the line-up). Having had a chance to compare, he is settled on 75% intensity for Sapphire to brain hemispheres. The following morning it is my great good fortune to be within earshot at his emergence from sleep - Wow! I was dreaming; really different...; usually my dreams are full of tussle and hard. Actually, I talk in my sleep a lot I've been told, like fighting something... That's what's different! (blessed epiphany); I was dreaming of what I want and feeling it coming... Wow!!
Wow wonder Wow.
So we go on, ever awake to more than before; life and the human psyche inviting infinite deep dive discovery. And we, encouraged and re-reminded that consciousness is a living terrain, open to truly being explored and indeed, when set and setting are perfectly aligned, may be tweaked with beneficial efficacy!
