To achieve a state of mindfulness, please consider these forms of exercises and intentional practices. Brain exercise is a form of meditation. It’s impact will tune-up that which is within every point of the body. Routinely doing the brain exercises explained in the following, would then exemplify the result of mind control of your own and self governance. To control all that is within will ensure a greater influence and improvement of what is always manifesting.
An example of someone who has not yet mastered this skill; the inconsideration.. the lack of discipline, accountability or commitment. There could be voids or blocks in specific points in the brain (or other energy points like the heart, the core, and the throat). That could lead to a disassociation from themselves and their thoughts… a specific thought about a person, a relationship, or memory.
Always hold the brain and its functions in high regard. Here, I’d like to emphasize how practicing intentional control of your breath, your eyes, your thoughts, and your consciousness will lead to a more sovereign state of mind, and therefor, a sovereign state of living.
Practicing breathwork by specifically directing the airflow to the brain will help make reference to the central points of your brain. Expanding and contracting the pathways will stimulate those central points within. This is a practice of intention and discipline. Air signs (Taurus, Gemini, Libra), may be instinctually good at this practice in a healthy stage in their lives. The art of directing the air will greatly determine their effectiveness of manifestation, communication, and thought patterns.
It is vital to identify consciousness within you. You as consciousness, can then move within any part of your body effortlessly, with purpose. Similar to how stretching and flexing the muscles in your body help to bring your awareness to it’s conditions and discomforts, you are becoming more conscious of your whole being. Your head, should be included in this practice. You would then understand how to bring consciousness to any part of your own body you so choose. This practice alone is important towards gaining the capacity to flow within and without physical and mental boundaries.
I want to introduce a concept to you here; the muscles in and around your brain can correlate to the quality of your perception of your reality. The two complete structures that I would like to bring to your attention in this regard the functions of your face, and your brain.
*Please look out for my presentation focusing solely on the functions of the face, to incorporate into gene context of exercises for self governance. I will touch on the eyes, tongue, cheeks, nose, ears, and lips.*
Today, I really wanted to bring up the importance of the eye posture and the strengthening practices. Eye awareness is another form of meditation to strengthen the connection between eye movement and true awareness. Where your eyesight goes, your consciousness, your attention and your focus typically goes as well.
Identify where your consciousness resides during these practices. Your reference point may be closer to the brow line, between or a bit above the two apparent eyes, maybe you feel your consciousness residing in the back of your brain, at the top of your skull, or near one ear or the other. When your consciousness within your eye structure and/or other structures within your brain is identified, you can then transition into headspace meditation.
*Please look out for my presentation that speaks specifically about eye awareness and how to practice strengthening and controlling these structures.*
Here is where you detach or attach to your personal identity, your thoughts, your conceptions of emotion. Here is where you choose your way of perception and manifestation. I will speak more specifically on all that is headspace in an upcoming presentation. To manage yourself effectively, knowing what and who you are in the context of the actual mind, and the spirit that lives in and throughout this structure will greatly service you.
These exercises can contribute to unfamiliar sensations such as brain ‘zaps‘, and lightheadedness. It can also contribute to extreme mental clarity and enlightenment (relative). To self govern or control your thoughts (controlling your ‘mind’), moving fluidly within and throughout all areas of your brain consciously is what you will want to master.
Meditation where you just ‘watch’ your thoughts float by is another practice of identifying where each type of thought is sourced from and where the most activity or sensation is, when having the thought.
Using the analogy of a tree. There is a top and a bottom. They sort of mimic each other. The roots underground and the top branches. Relating that to the body, there is a central energy connecting us to Earth’s core. There are top branches connecting us to the source above. So, just as tantra can be felt within the lower chakras of the body, it can be contracted and expanded, held within or released, same as within the energy points in and around the functions of your brain.
In the practice of pulling the energy to a centralized place, your consciousness assesses its potency, it’s lightness. It can then be outsourced with more intention, more awareness. Similar to the way your heart controls the blood, it is sourced through and directed to every part of your body. The heart, like the mind consciousness is a central point, it is also what governs. Like the heart, it is what decides to release the energy within and to influence the way in which we attract whatever comprises our reality.
