  1. Happy Xmas to everyone! I wish happiness, love and wisdom to all the beings in this forum. May grace be with you Today, I want to give you guys a christmas present! It's a gift from my heart that arose after months of applying one of the most profound techniques I have ever learned - Letting Go - applied to the body! 1. Introduction It's a perfect tool for healing and spiritual growth. It's so simple but so easily overlooked. You can do it everywhere, anywhere, all the time. Big news, it will happen by itself spontaneously when you invest some time in it. It's so effective that you'll have no chance but to do it. Everything's going to get better from the moment you start applying. I know, I know, one of more of those... Skepticism is healthy. But don't let the mind prevent you from just trying it. If this guidance is aligned with your destiny, you're in for some good surprise! Read it slowly and let it be understood experientially. Stick to it and watch what happens. I will try to keep it as short as possible. 2. Theory Your Ego is made out of resistance. Resistance to what is. Resistance to Reality. Since you were a toddler, you have been resisting Reality. Because of this, you have developed some deep layered contractions and tensions that are still with you today. These tensions are right there in your body and keep you from enjoying your full potential in life. The Ego is made up of these contractions which create a mediocre sense of self. The more contractions there are, the more the Ego feels real and solid. It's hard for an ordinary person to sit still because there's so much contraction that it's painful. These tensions corrupt your energy system and give rise to all the negative thoughts. These contractions are basically suppressed energies in motion - emotions. Energy in Motion => Resistance (Contraction) => Thoughts As this energy is released, the thoughts that originate from the corresponding emotion disappear altogether, the Ego is dissolved, slowly and gradually. The goal is to dissolve every bit of contraction till full liberation. While applying the technique for months and years, you'll experience higher and higher emotions, higher consciousness and all the benefits from dissolution of the Ego. The benefits are fast and easy. 3. Technique Stop moving for a second. Be aware of the entirety of your body sensations all at once, specially the torso. Do that for 15 seconds. Now, think something from your life that makes you uncomfortable (the most uncomfortable thoughts make best for this example). Notice that there's an immediate response in the physical body. There's some contraction in the chest, abdomen, solar plexus or other place. The uncomfortable feel is that contraction. Now focus on it like a laser without trying to remove it or change it. Just be still and focus on it. Watch it dissolve magically. What's left is a lighter emotion, less thoughts and higher awareness. DON'T LISTEN TO THE THOUGHTS. They are just mind rationalisations for the discomfort, no matter how true and reasonable they might seem. Discomfort => Body awareness => Contraction detected => Focus and release You have been denying and contracting for all your life so it might (just might ) take a bit of time till you 1) are aware of your body contractions 2) can free up the tensions fast. Usually it takes days to dissolve these contractions once you are aware of them. As time goes on, you'll find yourself releasing them in a matter of minutes. There are literally dozens of thousands of these contractions which are stored in a layer of feelings. The more you apply the technique the more you dive deep in this layer. 4. Applications You always have contractions on your body. There's always some tension underlying your current experience, even if you're not aware of it. Spend some time being aware of your body (body awareness is key here) and let go of the contractions that you can perceive. Remember, let go is just to focus and release the energy. Do this all the time, ALL THE FUCKING TIME. Specially when you feel triggered and uncomfortable. You'll see, in a matter of days, that this is (the?) most powerful technique and you'll be doing it all the time. Then there comes a point where there's always great awareness of the body and the technique just works by itself without "you" doing anything. Even if you don't feel triggered, you can always be aware of the contractions present right now. Just turn your attention to the body. Be still. Tip: usually it's on the torso area that these blocks manifest, but not always. Dissolving problems So, this is the most important technique for all of your problems... I see people debating on the forum on many topics: dating problems, self-help problems, insecurity problems, anxiety problems, etc. Know that all of those are just internal blocks which are creating all the thoughts and "problems" on your life. Apply this technique and watch those disappear. Then, you won't need to fix your problems, because they will magically dissolve when the energy is not blocked. See what contraction is causing your current suffering/problem. 5. Key messages Be aware of your body. Be aware of the contractions right now. Don't listen to the thoughts. Be still. And let gooooooooooo. 6. Final bells This technique is amazing, you'll benefit a lot! I'll bet it will become your favourite practice. As time goes on, it will not be seen as a practice but just as surrender. This teaching is heavily discussed in David Hawkins' book Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender. But here, I strongly point that the blocks are in the body, not in an imaginary land. Lots of love and I would love to read your ideas and experiences! I wish you well
  2. Fuck this shit, I'm back to Cheetos & Game of Thrones.
  3. Take that shit. Apart from jokes: it will open you up in incredible ways. But don't see it as a magic pill for anything. If you're that depressed, consider starting a self-inquiry and meditation habit. Those alone will transform your whole life.
  4. Awareness is the "silence", beneath/between/behind thoughts. You can't really know what awareness is if your mind isn't enough still. Just sitting alone for 20 minutes a day for some months should start revealing what awareness is.
  5. @Thinh Not necessarily, stuff goes very deep don't think about it just do it.
  6. There are contractions that are so deep and painful that will take months or years to dissolve. I'm dissolving lots of them on the solar plexus (it seems the most affected area in my body). And I've been dissolving for months now and it's still very painful. I wish you guys courage and focus to keep on it!
  7. @Annetta I'm glad! If you want more insights I recommend checking the course The Sedona Method and/or the book Letting Go by David Hawkins. Know that you don't need though, it's just if you're interested in a conceptual framework to work on.
  8. Fuck yeah, every single day for fucking 400 days straight!
  9. Happy New Year to everyone! Lots of love, joy, peace and tons of 5-MeO to all of you!
  10. After reading a lot of spiritual books I still can't grasp nor understand the correlation of these concepts: God, God head, Supreme being, Consciousness, Pure consciousness, Presence, Awareness, Unmanifest, Manifest, Divinity, Being. How do these interconnect? And what are their real meaning?
  11. Let it go, let it go Can't hold it back anymore Let it go, let it go Turn away and slam the door I don't care what they're going to say Let the storm rage on. The cold never bothered me anyway It's funny how some distance Makes everything seem small And the fears that once controlled me Can't get to me at all It's time to see what I can do To test the limits and break through No right, no wrong, no rules for me, I'm free!
  12. Very nice, thank you so much! I'm very interested in a Skype session. Cheers! This is very similar to The Sedona Method and The Letting Go Technique, where you just allow yourself to feel something as deeply as you can and release the energy trapped.
