Spiritual Exercise of the Week

Bypassing the Mind

This spiritual exercise can help you bypass the mind, which tends to get stuck in a routine. If you have done a spiritual exercise enough times that it becomes a routine, the mind says, "I know this path"—and immediately runs ahead and puts up blocks.

So you trick the mind by coming at the spiritual exercise from different angles. The mind is reactive, but Soul is active and without limits. You can come up with more creative exercises than the mind can find blocks for.

For a month, alternate the following spiritual exercise with your regular one. You can do this exercise one night, use your regular spiritual exercise the second night, then try this one again the third night.

Imagine walking with the Master on the inner planes. Begin chanting a word which is similar to HU: HUUUACH (HU-ach). It begins with a rough H, as is used in the German or Greek languages, then forms into a soft, drawn-out HUU-ach.

All ECK words, or names for God on the different planes, are derivatives of HU. The word given during an ECK initiation is a name for God from a specific plane, tailored to your particular vibration. These names are given for your spiritual upliftment and can be used for your Soul Travel adventures and journeys.
