Connection Practice

From The SpiritWiki


A Connection Practice (a.k.a. Connection Technique) is any technique, such as meditation, mantras, relaxation, mindfulness, drumming, fasting, hypoventilation (Dole & Kiven, 1997), etc., that can a) open and enhance your connection to Consciousness/Highest Self and b) enable better control of the Flow that ensues.

Notes

Connection Practices combined with Connection Appliances like the TOSAS.

The careful and guided use of Connection Supplements can facilitate connection practice.

The Lightning Path provides several neurolinguistic tools (i.e. meditations, visualization, and mantras) [1] that can be used at various stages in the process to facilitate greater connection.

Emanuel Swedenborg cites "hypoventilation" as a technique used to facilitate a low level Connection (Dole & Kiven, 1997).

Grof uses the term "Technologies of the Sacred" to refer to Connection Practices (drumming, fasting, sleep deprivation, etc.), Connection Appliances (drums, rattles), and Connection Supplements (Lazslo, Groff, Russell, 1999: 16).
