We try to meditate together at 9PM Pacific Time on Thursday nights for 15 minutes, but you can use the meditation at any time.

Theme for March 15--April 14, 2014

Last month, we returned to the basic of meditation: sensing oneself physically. Now we build on that foundation, extending sensation from the density of blood and flesh into less dense aspects of the body.

It is sometimes difficult to find the foundation of this higher level of search. Is it meditation, contemplation, prayer, reading? Actually, the journey begins in compassion, and it starts with the search to find compassion for oneself. We have addressed compassion before, saying that it isn’t a matter of simply being kind, but that it has another, deeper, dimension. Compassion is about understanding and giving what is needed the most. So, how do we start?

There is inside each one of us a built-in master who stands willing to assist us in our journey. This part of being lies at the borderland between oneself and the conscious energy all around us. To gain access, engage in the sensing exercise, quiet your mind, then ask, ‘tell me what I need the most?’ Sooner or later, an answer will come, most often in a dream. Once that happens, you have begun a wonderful, lifelong journey of discovery with your inner master. This master is, in part, what we call ‘conscience.’ It is deeply moral, truthful and honest. It is joyous, innocent and wise. It is you, and also all of consciousness reflected within you.

To follow the audio meditations designed by Whitley Strieber, Unknowncountry subscribers should go to Whitley's Room and click on subjects in the subject cloud to the right that include the word 'Meditation.' These meditations reflect his own work with the visitors, and are the result of 40 years of personal meditation, and 11 years of meditation with them.

“When we meditate this Thursday, let's experiment with visualizing that room and the entities in it. In my years of doing this, I have gained a lot of contact in just this way. It has never been hostile or negative in any way, and I think that's because negative energy just isn't strong enough to sustain something like this.”

As I tried to enter this room there were a few images that came to mind.

This first image was of a long knotted rope. I looked online and this is fairly close to what I saw; the image I saw was not wrapped around anything.

Then, lots of tan colored mushrooms that smelled like a damp basement. The texture was spongy and skin like.

Where to begin? I started the meditation as suggested, getting a good sense of my third eye and letting sensation fill my body. Soon, I was seeing small flashes every so often. I kept patient and thought of the earth and our conscious planet. I began to get more flashes and soon was seeing glimpses of many different worlds. Some at night, others during the day and one with a deep red sky, presumably at sunset or sunrise. At that point, I asked for whoever could help us the most to help us now and the energy of the meditation increased immensely. I thought again of the earth, of our group and our effort.

At once, I became aware of the universe that we live in and how it is filled with a network of consciousness. I felt immense compassion for the universe and that we are simply conscious beings ready to explore. I got the words "be free now" and as my vision expanded across the vastness of the universe, I realized that the great expanse of the universe was filled with consciousness. It was a humbling feeling to be a part of this. I got the impression that consciousness from other worlds connected with us and sent their energy back to earth. I am looking forward to this next phase.

Font, I sensed this other presence, the one that always watches, a little while in the meditation. It was watching me in the last few minutes of my meditation and showed me the universe as I decribed seeing it above.

So glad I could join in last night - though I was almost 10 minutes late, I stayed in meditation up to 12:30 EST. I had a little trouble with my breathing, but once I settled into the meditative state, my breath calmed and I became aware that something (a new presence - perhaps a distant sentient being?) was observing the action of my lungs. My impression was that this was a learning experience for the observer - that they had never connected with a being that breathes air through lungs. After about 5 minutes of this - just me breathing and the remote observer observing, the usual benevolent being (he always joins in on the meditation) was there. Not sure who/what this being is that always shows up, but he sort of stepped aside and allowed the other distant observer to learn about the breathing.

Wonderful tonight. Yes I would like to see meditation continue.The Earth needs healing...we need healing

I actually experienced this during a meditation this morning but felt it related to the group meditation tonight. What came to mind is, SOPHIA, SOPHIA!!!!! It had the feel of a supplication.

Who is Sophia in Greek mythology?

Sophia was the goddess of Wisdom.

I also wish to add my voice to those asking that the meditations continue. I consistently feel an effect and an energy in the present moment when doing these. And although that effect or energy may not necessarily be something that I understand or find comfortable at that moment, it does seem that something real happens when we do these.

Keep up the good work.

Se debe continuar...

Using my imagination while trying to become one with earth, I found myself moving down into the spine/backbone or center of our planet. There was a pleasant sound/vibration followed by a shrieking (unpleasant sound). The iron itself was transmuting into a more crystal like structure. Moaning and birthing. The process looked as though it was just beginning. I stayed there for a while making sure this is what I was feeling/seeing in my imagination.

I see no reason to give up on the effort.

May the meditations continue.

Press on with the meditations...

I would like the meditations to continue. (I did not submit my email, I didn't see why that was necessary. If it is then I will do so.)

From Whitley's .....Finding Ourselves in Laughter....."A dog lives for love, wanting nothing but his food, his work and the affection of his master. Similarly, God will go anywhere for love."


You'll love this one. (From a friend).

Melting our Assumptions:

This meditation was very strange. I evoked thoughts of my wife’s cousin who died just over 2 years ago in late 2010. I had memories of good times. Then began talking about how much I loved her, we loved her, and how we all miss her and how I see so much of her in her girls every time that I see them. I felt a brief connection with something that I saw and felt at the same time with my eyes closed. I felt a strange tug literally go down the right side of my body through my head then out my right hip bone as if a string of being connected with me. All I saw was a white string like force rush through my body. It felt very natural which was odd. Then at one point my body began to spin on itself in a circular motion in a counterclockwise motion. I then felt as in a previous meditation a string like almost electric charged wormlike hair just seem to grow out of my forehead in the center just below my hairline. It felt as though I was connected somehow to something. But that something I couldn’t sense. It felt as if the energy was growing out of my forehead. I then spun forward awake. I saw it was 10:12 on my phone and went back into meditation. I began talking to my wife’s cousin again. I loved her; we all love her and miss her. Then I explained even though she left us unexpectedly that I prayed that she was happy and should be happy because her girls love her and miss her. I said I missed her and wished she was still here with us but then it clicked that we are all here together (after reading The Key) we just need to learn to make that connection and be at one with everything and not be afraid of what we discover in the unknowncountry!

Whitley and everyone.....I wanted to see my mom in this meditation, so when I closed my eyes she was there. I LOVED HER VERY MUCH. When she appeared, it came to me that I could ask a question. I asked her to share something new.....My brain/mind heard, "The eye will soon be able perceive a new color in the spectrum of colors." (All humankind will be able to do this).

As hard as I try not too, words just slip in sometimes when I am meditating, even when I am NOT asking a question.

As I was coming out of this meditation another thought entered my mind. HOWEVER, there is a real possibility that the following was stuck in my thoughts because of the interview that William Henry had with Anthony Peake. I did listen to it today BUT wanted to include the following anyway. (I know this is sort of silly but then again it feels important to include all thoughts when they enter in).

"Luke Skywalker, get out of the control room."

May have to sit this one out.

Edit: I've decided to try for someone who I may have known, oh say in another life maybe, and work with that.

"we choose someone we loved in life, who is now departed..."

What if we have no one like that, someone who has died?

I think that meditation outside of group time is starting to become effective as well. Or it might be that doing a meditation on a good strong vibe according to your day is just as helpful, I dunno. In any case, its been good.

Laid out my Marsellies Tarot deck that is mentioned in the back of The Path. I stared and contemplated the JUSTICE card. Started my meditation warm up at 11:45 EST and ultimately went to 12:45 am , but I was clearly missing some time. Everytime I get into the zone to meditate at the beginning of the 'session' my large Maine coon cat will jump up on my chest. No matter where he is in the house, he comes when I get like 15 minutes into the session. At first I thought this to be a lark, but this is the third occurance & frankly he creates more chatter in my mind. The dog doesn't budge. Anyone else have astral cat issues? Is he tuned in to whats going on? I wonder.

I've had both my Maine Coon cat and my Lab /Australian Shepard mix howl or jump on me to prevent the OOB states or higher states of consciousness and wondered if it was related to "contact" experiences. Once I awoke in a paralyzed state aware that there were "others" walking around the bedroom and they made the mistake of trying to pick up the cat. She cleaned something's clock in a hurry. Furniture got knocked over and I heard a lot of movement and a clicking chirping sounds and squeaks of excited activity, it sounded something like a dolphin. It lasted less than a minute, but from that time on all the pets were out cold for 5 minutes or more after I regained the ability to move after a "visit".

The courage and strength to make the effort without fear:
And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make.

Meditated on Engaging The Tarot Teacher last night. I would think these next two weeks should be powerful. I am still feeling it from last night....

Whitley, and everyone.....This meditation, at least for me, was one of the best, I was able to go deeper tonight. However, the following was not expected. As much as I was trying to stay in the silence, this song (music and all came to mind). I looked up the lyrics after the meditation and these are the words that spoke to me.

Come, oh, come, come, come.]

He roller-coaster, he got early warning
He got muddy water, he one mojo filter
He say "One and one and one is three"
Got to be good-looking cos he's so hard to see
Come together right now over me

Come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah come together
Yeah oh
Come together
Yeah come together

The meditations, especially during the weekly Thursday evenings, have been very powerful. There is a warmth that accompanies the effort while directing my attention. It is like a harmony, like when a three part harmony sounds so well blended. These group efforts are very worthwhile. I am so glad Whitley suggested this idea.

During this past week's meditation, I brought my sensation to the silence around me. I surprisingly found a calm, still silence. Surrenduring myself to this silence, I began to obtain glimpses of this deep vastness from which all seems possible. I felt that my analytic brain, trying to analyze the experience prevented me from immersing deeper in this meditation. However, I gained a new sense of joy in the experiences that fill my life. From the silence, from this potential, all being exists and it is truly wonderful, all of it. There is really only love there, here and everywhere.

For me the meditation was very powerful. I don't sense the presence of others directly, but doing the mediation during the group time is far more energetic for me, so I am sure that our collective effort is working. I experienced the silence itself as something alive, conscious, everywhere and absolutely still, an observer to the universe of motion in which we live. The question 'why am I here?' gained new life for me, new mystery and new meaning. So to everybody who was out there struggling along with me, THANK YOU!

Before I started the meditation I just thought the phrase: Why am I here? Once I started, it was just mostly dark silence then would hear the word “Love” unexpectedly at different times. Saw visuals of liquid type color forms swirling and moving around in fascinating 3d type designs that were geometric but morphed around into liquid form as unfamiliar faces morphing in and out of liquid form, body chills throughout. Visuals were very alive and wormlike. Just mostly dark this time and quiet in the beginning and middle portion other than the visuals described and the one word that was heard. Then towards the end kept hearing “I want to hear the Universe, speak to me, I’m listening." Before opening my eyes I heard "Remember who you are" in soft soothing tone. I was extremely relaxed afterwards but very awake.

Ray, I had nearly the same experience as you on Jan 3. I am in Wisconsin. When asking the question, why am I here?, it was at first just random flashes back and forth and long silence. Then very clearly: "You are here to love." It rang in my head like a bell over and over, and I smiled in the dark. I now understand that we are here to create the only NEW energy in the universe: love. All else was there at the beginning, our souls, our carbon, our motion forward. But all of us in this meditation group are creators of the only element that is created new and never diminishes or dies. Love.

Melanie, That is so great to hear. Even though distance is between us and this group, it's good to know that we are all experiencing something unique together and that is truly amazing. When I read your post I got goosebumps because it confirms to me even more that what we are experiencing is real!

Well, I feel reasonably sure this dream experience is related to the meditation…..

I did the meditation, and then went to bed. I prayed for a dream, showing me wisdom and truth. Here is a synopsis of what I dreamed during the night.

I am in a shopping mall with many store fronts and many choices. None were bad choices, simply a quantum choice that would take me down a specific road.

Now with a male co-worker that I used to work with (both of us now retired) and we are putting multi colored food nuggets into bags to be distributed to the needy/hungry; there are other people working with us as well.

I am observing a gray alien, procreating with a human female, seemingly all consensual/no fear.

In a different house now where my good friend grew up and we have wonderful childhood memories here. I (HEAR) a piano and two teen voices coming from the kitchen. THE VOICES WERE SOOO SWEET. I have been in the bathroom putting on makeup but then walk out to see who is singing. The voices are coming from my two great nephews (not aware they have any exceptional musical talents). This is what they are singing, over and over. The melody is beautiful.
