  1. Well Beth said it best, ultimately we are just energy, the makers erase everything, past, culture, blood, we are not our past, we are not our culture and we are not our families. Those things can be in our lives but we don't let any of them define us anymore. If you want to move and do the impossible you do away with it all and stand in your own freedom then your heart can speak without all the attachments. In the end we are not special, not chosen by anyone else or anything else, we are makers because we chose to be one and live as one. it is a personal choice and that choice comes with a responsibility to your own intent what you decide to do with your life, where you want to stand at the end of it and you choose that too.

    Seeing the Past

    Hi KAF, I have experienced something similar and usually I observe what is happening in my life at the moment and look for connections between those memories from the past and the present moment. Often it seems there is no logical link between the two but I found out there is always an energetic one which I understood through the recapitulation process. Cyfnos
  3. Hi Colin, Welcome to the cave. I am not really familiar with kundalini practices but I found a list of possible side effects on wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kundalini In the maker tradition it is all about balance, for example you can't be happy and high energy all the time that would be an unbalanced position of your energy since we have three other basic emotions which have something to say too. We teach how to deal with the emotional body in our Quicksilver class but or example if you force the position of joy for too long grief will be showing up pretty soon to counter balance it, you can do that yourself by your own choice or things will happen in your life to create that balance again. Often as human beings we are fighting/resisting this movement toward balance and that's when things don't feel so good, we lack fluidity. Partly this happens because we are brought up judging emotions joy is "good" "grief, anger and fear" are bad while in actuality all four are neither good nor bad they are just emotions and being fluid, switching easily from one to the next is a more natural state of our emotional body. So in the maker view of the energy body the soul does not own joy or is restricted to joy, the soul can express grief, anger and fear and in some ways it needs too to stay healthy and thriving.

  4. It simply helps you find the memories and memories associated with those memories, memories form a web and the compression put them closer to you so you can grab them and recap them. Without the compression especially at first it is much more difficult to create momentum in the recap process, the momentum of going from memory to memory. This momentum does not follow a logical order it is an energetic active process and often memories linked together seem to have not relations on the surface but they do in your energy. If your energy is not compressed your mind is more likely to rule the show and make the connections for you from memory to memory which is the last thing we want because then it becomes a mental process and has no effect whatsoever. I guess you still get to do a good breathing exercise so that must count for something.... C
  5. Hi Nukemm, I think the maker approach to look at energy directly helps avoid common problems. By looking for the direct energy we take away the ability of the mind to misdirect us somewhere else. For example when I dream or see things and it is visually crowded with people, animals or even places I shift away from what I "see" and connect more with the emotions present so that's one layer down, then things change often the imagery disappears and I start to understand better. When your emotional body is speaking you can see where inside you it strikes (what emotion) and heal it if need be. You can also learn how to detach emotionally from it until that layer drops down and then you will see just energy moving, intent, will. The trick as usual is that you have to allow change for it to occur and the change is internal, to experience the universe as moving energy you have to learn to experience yourself as moving energy. So my take on it and this is just my opinion and not a judgment on my part, I am dealing with the same thing everyday, is that how we see reflects how we see ourselves. If you experience yourself as bone and flesh then stuff will be bony and fleshy out there. If you think you are all rainbow and light then bring some sunglasses... those in the end are just attempt from the mind to create a box. So the Makers in the end decided that the truth is much more useful and we constantly strip things to just experience the energy behind everything. Welcome to the cave. C
  6. Like any energy movement it is best to learn it with your own energy first before attempting it onto other energies. Actually I found out it is much more powerful that way, you spend less energy and achieve results more easily. Of course the trick is to accept the changes in yourself by that process, in some way you have to become someone who is not attacked anymore so in other word a different person. This means that what you have to do is to ground your own energy not the energy that come at you, by doing that you change yourself, heal yourself and understand why all of that happened in the first place. In the end it is by moving your own energy that you become most effective. As long as you are OK with change it should work well. Now if you find yourself in a fight and cannot avoid it give it your best shot, a do or die attitude and mean it. I have found myself in such situation but I had practiced on myself first a do or die intent to heal my energy. Either I heal or I die those are the choices I gave myself. Change is always difficult but once our energy taste a bit of the freedom that comes with it tends to never let go like Pit Bull and a bone. Now if your own energy is more like a Pit Bull I doubt you will get attacked a lot... C
  7. Yes I understand, that's why I suggested grounding, it is a powerful tool to bring clarity, to find out the why of any situation, your place in it, your real responsibility and then how to change it if you choose to. In our tradition we put a big emphasis on self-healing, the recapitulation is something we do all our lives once we committed to it, every day until we die. It is a commitment to our energy to keep it whole and healthy, to cherish it really, we are born with it so it is our responsibility and no one else will get a piece of it. In business terms: I worked so hard to get it back that now I know the real price of letting it go for nothing... and furthermore if someone attacks me I will have plenty of energy to defend myself or move out of the way. We are charging a small fee for classes but the distance healing are free of charge. Cyfnos
  8. Hey Vasily, Sorry to hear about your troubles. We work as healers too here at the cave, if you want we could do a distance healing session to see what the problem is. Let me know if you are interested. In any case healing your energy is probably the best course of action to eliminate the hooks other energies can use to connect with you but also your own sense of detachment can be raised in order for you see those things as they are and not anymore as they contribute to your own fear. As usual recap is the first step. We have a sessions starting up soon and the recap class is offered. Since you seem to be naturally fluid, grounding yourself actively would be a good option too. Here are a couple of articles: http://www.shamanscave.com/self-healing/what-is-grounding http://www.shamanscave.com/practices/grounding cyfnos

    Intent is very interesting and sometimes ruthless. The deathwalker intent will keep moving in search of new experiences. It sounds like you have lived something new, something that will change you, change moves you into unfamiliar territory, a place where we have to reinvent ourself, that process grows us, brings us knowledge. In the shamanic we have the big one the shamanic death, your own death can help you move to a different perspective. It is not an easy transformation, it kind of stretches you, your energy and emotions will run high but the intent is ruthless it will move no matter what because in the end it is who you are and what you do, the rest is irrelevant. Here is a good article to start learning how to work with your own death: http://www.shamanscave.com/practices/death-as-our-own-ally Cyfnos

    It is a difficult gift, I use the word gift because to me helping someone take the last step in life is a healing act. I think the advice you got is a good one, having friends around you is a great way to find balance. Life and death is a dance and to create that balance, for the waltz to move smoothly across the floor of your own energy you can develop a counter weight so to speak. A lively one. The other aspect is detachment, if you are too attached to people who are going to die the losses add up over time and pain ensue. You can move yourself to a more detached position still be of help but when they leave you will be able to let them go better, because in the end it is their death, it has nothing to do with you. As always this kind of shift of your own energy is done through your own self-healing, especially the recapitulation. Best of luck, Cyfnos
  11. Music speaks to our emotional body. As such it needs to be able to represent an incredible variety of emotions. The Greeks were very much aware of this and used what we call the modes to express that variety. The Greeks had seven modes. Throughout the centuries and the rise of the church the uses of those modes changed to reflect only two of the them Lydian and Hypodorian (Greek names). Today we call them Major and Minor modes and the minor modes was modified even further to resemble the Major mode in its upper register especially the melodic minor. So all of that variety was simplified to “happy and sad” and the sad was so difficult to handle than we had to make it happier by modifying it... The modes did not disappear completely, Debussy revisited them, the Beatles used them too but as a general rule they have become the exception. If we look at it from the point of view of our emotional body this is deep conditioning into believing that only the happy position is worth something, all the other ones being irrelevant, bad, our mind took the route of defining them as “out of taste” and if we could taste music… oh wait we actually can , there is a lot we could do to reclaim our full potential. What I like to do is to play those modes everyday or sing them and see what they stir inside me what they show me, the Greeks had specific emotions attached to them but I prefer to see what I attach to them and work with that instead. If you have access to a piano it is made simple by playing just the white keys up and down. B-B' Mixolydian, C-C' Lydian, D-D' Phrygian, E-E' Dorian, F-F' Hypolydian, G-G' Hypophrygian, A-A' Hypodorian. To simplify I call them B, C, D, E, F, G and A modes, but you know we have to be careful of where simplification leads us to…. . We are complex emotional beings there is no way around it. Emotional conditioning is a big one in self healing, it affects our perceptions, this is something that is looked at and worked with in our Quicksilver class, if you are interested we start this Sunday March 20 at 10pm EDT and sign up is still available. Thank you for reading. Cyfnos
  12. It's like music, first there is rhythm, the rhythm is how things move, faster sound waves produces higher pitch, slower lower pitch, there is the sound humanity makes, the sound the earth makes, the rocks, the plants, the sound the galaxies are making. Some of it we label as music but that is just a human perception, a choice. Some of it is used to create happiness, or help the grieving process, some will help you express your anger or fears all of that variety comes from the basic rhythm of a sound wave. It is not bad or good it just is what is done with it is up to you. But everything in this world can be heard. Now is sound the basic fabric of the universe? Some would say yes some no but it certainly connects us with everything on a very basic level. You can go behind that veil and look at the intent what is the intent of sound itself, why does it exist, what is its purpose? This is not an intellectual exercise it is an active process of transforming your energy to experience the world differently. I found out music and sound are not human attributes, they exist in other realms, in other species. To really understand your place and what you would like to contribute to this world you can choose to be in a position of experiencing what is around you without the filters of humanity. Direct experience. The more I work with sound the more I become silent because I am realizing there is so much to listen to... that silence is a space growing in my heart where all the sounds that exist, existed or will exist have a home, by that I mean they can and will be heard without judgment. I am providing unity, I have to be balanced and detached. Cyfnos
  13. Yes that's correct, alcohol is the most common for example. C
  14. We all have free will so it really depends of you, is it your intend to learn something? Hey, and the graduation party is at the cemetery lol, sorry a little maker humor. Cyfnos
