you do not need to please the doorkeeper,
the door in front of you is yours,
intended for you,
and the doorkeeper obeys
when spoken to."
Well, you are the key, and whether or not you choose to enter through the doors is a choice that, although invisible, is life changing. You are the vehicle for the trip, consider this but a mere travel summary.
And for a detailed itinerary?
Well, that can only be fetched by you - not the part of you reading this, but the altered dream state part of your consciousness that will travel beyond the doors of perception to the wildness of the world where there is a livingness to all things - as it can only be found in a place with exclusive access.
A place where you can travel, but no one may follow - not even the conscious, waking state version of yourself scanning these very words. If you have experimented with psychedelics, you most likely know what it is like to sense the type of "livingness" to all things of which I speak.
Even if you haven't used psychedelics, though, you almost certainly have still experienced this same livingness to all things in the world around you to a noticeable degree at least once, but probably various times as a child - a moment where,
...and most notably, you could FEEL the world around you.
You were present, your perceptions altered, your senses heightened. In short, your sensory gating channels opened to some degree, a process more commonly referred to as opening your doors of perception.
This process, known as "sensory gating," enables us to decipher the difference between "me" and "not me."
Through sensory gating, we are able to manage and
comprehend the constant stream of sensory data from the external
environment. Without it, we would be unable to filter out what
matters and what doesn't, and all sensory data would touch us deeply
and ultimately, we would become overstimulated and overwhelmed and
go "crazy" - according to modern 'medicine', that is...
In indigenous cultures, these people would have instead been called SHAMANS, and would have been taught how to control their doors of perception and open and close them as need be.
There are ways to begin opening the
doors of perception, or sensory gating channels, without using
psychedelics. Of course, the experience will not be as intense or
immediate, but nor will it be short lived.
In essence, playing with the
doors of perception in this manner, rather than through the use of
mind altering substances, allows you to do more than have a life
changing experience in which you see the deeper meanings to life for
a brief period of time (i.e. a "trip"), but to change your life
where every moment is an experience in a continuous journey into
further, unexplored depths of life.
Hypnosis and Meditation
Practicing hypnotherapy and/or meditation on a regular basis is an excellent way to begin dabbling into the metaphysical backgrounds of yourself and of the world by tapping into your subconscious, into otherwise ignored parts of your mind.
These practices help open doors in the mind where things such as past traumas that are holding you back have remained imprisoned for years, desperately waiting for you to free them and thus yourself.
Meditation and hypnotherapy are also great tools for getting in touch with your intuition, helping you to see the bigger picture of current problems, allowing you to focus on the deeper truths and lessons they withhold rather than getting trapped in the mundane surface details of your problems.
In fact, when observed in this light, they eventually cease to be problems and are instead rendered avenues of inner exploration and growth.
Here below are some guided hypnosis and meditation sessions that may be of benefit:
It refers to the invisible type of feeling, as opposed to the feeling sense of physical touch embodying the ingredients of the five senses of human beings. One is invisible and subjective, the other solely portrays the mostly objective experience of physical touching, of feeling the texture of a person or object.
The feeling sense referring to the ability to feel the invisibles describes the feelings that stir within as we encounter various experiences in our day to day life, sometimes called a sixth sense, or the sixth sensory channel.
To better understand the sixth sensory channel, consider the following example: you come home from work and ask your partner what's wrong.
But, by the tone of their voice, you know nothing means everything, and that you better respond with something along the lines of, "please tell me what's wrong," unless you want to endure a silent dinner - one that also evokes a feeling sense, as the silence speaks volumes and is filled with tension, making you uneasy - and sleep on the couch that night.
Simply put, awakening to the feeling sense
that is not often spoken of as it is not included in the five senses
that we are taught we have, cultivates your feeling capacity, your
ability to feel the invisible, unspoken and unseen meanings of
situations, and of things both yourself and others do and say.
For a deeper understanding of the sixth sensory channel and how you can begin to reclaim your feeling sense, consider listening to this in this interview with Stephen Buhner:
