Stages of Experiencing in Meditation

 

By George A. Boyd © 2002

When you first meditate, you may not see anything inside yourself. Usually, the first sensing to arise is that of kinesthesia, or feeling. When it is very quiet, you may begin to hear the vibrations within your inner vehicles. Next, your visual sense will begin to operate. At first, you will see colored lights, patterns swirling. This will give rise to clearer vision of the inner worlds of consciousness. Ultimately, you will be able to see into the essence of another person.

The seven stages of experiencing in meditation are shown below:

Level

Phenomena

Kinesthesia/Feeling

Feeling movement, bliss, and waves of energy

Audition/Hearing

Hearing inner sounds within vehicles, resonance of the inner stream of the Nada, and Nadamic tones in space

Sight

Witnessing colors, white light, and patterns of light

Forms

Observing the visual forms of your own vehicles

Panorama

Observing the content and environment of the Inner Planes

Entity

Observing the inhabitants of the Inner Planes, ability to carry on dialogue with them; visual, auditory and kinesthetic communion with the Inner Guide

Essence

Ability to "see" the attentional principle, the spirit, the ensouling entity in yourself and others

The faculties of clairvoyance, clairaudience and clairsentience – the ability to see, hear, smell, taste and touch on the Inner Planes – arise only after sustained practice of meditation. At first, your experiences are vague, fuzzy and dreamlike. Later, they become sharp, focused and palpable.

If you practiced meditation in one or more past lives, you may find that you may begin to have the more advanced visual experience in mediation right away. If you do not have them, do not become discouraged. Regular practice of meditation, particularly mastery of inner transformation techniques and Raja Yoga methods, will rehabilitate your faculty of metavisional seeing, and will activate each of your subtle senses.

Each new breakthrough into a new dimension of inner sensing will bring you excitement, and will whet your appetite for new spiritual adventures. The adventure of consciousness exploration is the Great Frontier within, and will yield ever-new vistas of discovery and insight to your inner travels. Persist in meditation and, in time, all of the stages of meditation experiencing will be awakened inside of you.
