Initiation and Namaste
The last week involved opening more to the Divine. According to our guides, the Divine responds to us exactly as we imagine it. Is the Divine a loving friend? An authoritarian or dictator? It’s up to us to decide. What was most fascinating to me was that after we learned how to give the Oneness Blessing to others, I could perceive exactly what relationship each person had with the Divine. It came through so clearly in the quality of their touch. My relationship to the Divine was shown to me in a visual. Connecting personally with the Divine was exactly like racing bareback with my favorite horse, Pecos, across a beautiful green meadow. There was power, thrill, joy and oneness all in an instant.
Our initiation to give the Oneness Blessing was a deeply spiritual event followed by celebration as only the Oneness University could do. During the initiation, the energy was so palpable I went into a deep meditative state. Suddenly there was a flash of illumination. Was this enlightenment, I briefly wondered? Nope. It was all these people taking photos. Although cameras were prohibited, many people took pictures throughout the event to capture the energetic phenomena that occurs on the University when the Divine energy is very present—golden orbs of light throughout the room. At first it was annoying, then I just asked to go into a deeper state of altered consciousness, knowing I wouldn’t be bothered by it anymore.
Afterward we put on some great tunes and danced around the room. What an event! How could anything top this day, we all wondered? Yet we had five more days to our process.
The rest of the time we learned how to give the Oneness Blessing, what to expect when we got home, and other details involving using the Oneness Blessing. We had the opportunity to visit the Golden Temple that is under construction. It is being built to honor all of the ways of devotion to the Divine. In the Golden Temple, we meditated and chanted under the main stuppa (like a square dome). It had the most amazing acoustics. We sounded like virtuoso monks.
One of the most compelling experiences of the last week (and there were many!) was when we hugged a Cosmic Being. Initially, I was not that excited about this process. I imagined one more event that would involve everyone fighting for “front row” seats. I was already filled up and overflowing with energy. Why keep adding more water to the cup? I decided to go and meditate but, at the point of hugging, I was going to slip out the back. I went to the meditation hall late (why hurry to get there when I was planning on leaving?) I couldn’t find my backjack anywhere. Finally I located it. Someone had moved my things right in front!
I realized I wouldn’t be able to slip away without drawing huge attention to myself. So I surrendered and hugged a Cosmic Being. Bliss swept through me. As she looked into my eyes, I totally felt what Namaste (the traditional greeting in India) truly means. The Divine in me recognized and connected with the Divine within her. I remember thinking—this is how every relationship should be! Then my Cosmic Being and I were laughing and hugging and laughing again, all thought gone for a while.
Time to Return
Before I left the campus I took a last look around. When I arrived there was a lot of construction going on. Piles of dirt, trenches, and dug up boulders laid everywhere. At the end of 21 days there were even more piles of dirt and boulders, but they weren’t the same ones as at the beginning. It seemed a fitting metaphor for the Oneness Process that I had just gone through. Certain things had become more ordered within me and yet new areas were excavated and waiting to become orderly as well.
My last days in India were spent down at a beach resort, giving myself a few more days to assimilate before reentry. And, of course, do some shopping.
It’s now been close to two months since I returned. I can feel many new levels of awareness within myself along with new abilities. I’ve become much more of a medical intuitive, able to see certain things in minute detail. Watching how the Oneness Blessing helps evolve the brain with those who have received it, has been a lesson in itself.
My creative abilities have increased as I move deeper into becoming a writer. My own work with Crystalline Consciousness Technique has also deepened as the Oneness Blessing and CCT find ways to support and enhance each other. I am committed to living fully in each day’s experience with joy and stillness. Some days I easily achieve that. Other days…well, let’s just say they’ll make for good posts on my blog!
P.S. For an excellent book that explains more about the Oneness Blessing please order “Awakening Into Oneness” by Arjuna Ardagh.
P.P.S. The Oneness Process is continuing to evolve as planetary consciousness evolves. The 21 day process is now a 9 day process. When it first started it was a 45 day process. At this rate it’ll be down to 60 minutes in a few years!
