Spiritual Exercise of the Week

A Gateway to Soul Travel

If you are interested in Soul Travel, you can try this technique tonight in the dream state. Before sleep, close your eyes and place your attention very gently on the Spiritual Eye. Then sing HU, and fill yourself with love.

This feeling of love is needed to give you the confidence to go forward into an unknown, unexplored area. One way to fill yourself with love is by calling up the warm memory of a past occasion that filled you with pure love.

Then look inwardly for the individual who is your ideal at this time—whether it is Christ or one of the ECK Masters. In a very gentle way, say, "I give you permission to take me to the place that I have earned for my greatest spiritual unfoldment." And then silently or out loud, continue to chant HU, God, or another holy word.

Try to visualize yourself walking into the inner worlds, and know that the individual who comes to meet you is a dear friend.

If it doesn't work the first time, do it again and again. The spiritual exercises are like physical exercises: before your muscles grow strong, you have to exercise them a number of times; it doesn't always happen in one try. It's quite likely that if you take up an exercise routine for thirty days, you're going to be stronger than you were at the beginning.

It's the same way with the spiritual exercises. The purpose of the Spiritual Exercises of ECK is simply to open a conduit or a channel between yourself and the Holy Spirit, which we know as the Audible Life Stream—the wave that comes from the heart of God. From the moment you begin singing HU and looking for truth in this particular way, whether you are conscious of it or not, changes are being made in you.
