My Adventures with
Personal Stories of Working with Subtle Energies
By Beth Quist
Early in the morning, around 2 AM, I was awakened with the sound of a bird singing outside my window. This was rather strange at this time of day, and I then turned over and fell back to sleep. About 30 minutes later, the bird again started and this time assumed the bird song was being used as a messenger to awaken me for some purpose. I got up, got dressed, and went downstairs to meditate.
In this meditation I already felt it was different than anything I had ever experienced. I had an awareness I was NOT just moving to the astral plane to connect with other Beings. In THIS meditation, I was moving through what felt like water, and moving upward. I then poked my head above the water as if I was in the middle of a vast Sea. I was then able to climb out of the water and stand on it. I then started to walk on the water, in this meditation. I walked on the water toward a shore.
Then, on the shoreline, instead of walking on the solid ground, I started to move through the air above the ground. I was then lifted and guided toward a door, which then opened into another type of experience. I had an awareness I was moving through and to another level of the Tao. It was layers of different mediums, and I was being guided through one medium to the next.
I then lifted a door hatch, and climbed up into another level, and then once again moved through this dimension, being guided to where the next doorway would be located. I kept moving upward to the next level but now felt I was getting lost, or was not reading the signs of where to go and how to move. I felt I needed a Guide. But I then thought, "I don't know where I am going, so do I really need a Guide? So I just continued to openly roam. But then I felt the presence of a Guide - someone I knew, and we sat and chatted as I tried to comprehend where I was. I wanted to get lay of this land or space.
Because this was happening during a meditation, I then thought about going "within" and could feel and see my inner CORE - the chakras and kundalini within my energetic self. I could see strands of lit threads of colors, all in a clear soft rainbow of hues. I then looked outward and could see the Milky Way. I saw how my strands of colored lights within my energetic self resembled the Milky Way - which seemed to reinforce this concept that we really are a microcosm of the universe itself.
I then could sense the journey of life on earth began at first with a THOUGHT, and then was the thought was expressed in FORM. The additional FORMS came together to create different and new thoughts, which then triggered new and more complex forms and desires. The seeds of generation, I thought. The start. The beginning. I could see some of these forms coming together in groups based on common and coordinated thoughts, which then created forms of PURPOSE. Then thoughts of movement and direction, and action, with more complexity. Eventually the forms created complexities of life, and then onward through time, to create animals, and then humans. Humans then created communities, and societies, and clusters of ideas and actions. These societies increased more complex social structures and provided even more complex choices and options and journeys. We are now seeing the communities coming together and being ready to EXCHANGE different thoughts and actions, which will then create NEW AND DIFFERENT societies and communities. We are in the phase of changing and remaking the societal and community structure in humanity, which will change how we think, act, and interact with all of life on the planet. This is the change - the awakening - a point of maximizing the complexity of thought, ideas, interactions and changing who, what, where, how humans live, think, work, create, be, are…
I could see that we as humans are following the script of the universe - the “big bang” began as a thought and grew, and created ALL THESE places and conglomerations of various forms, structures, life forms, non-life forms, etc. And humans have a similar, if not the same script written within them - like a code - a history, a roadmap, our story. It is within each and everyone of us. Perhaps this is what DNA is? I then ended the meditation and returned to bed. I slept deeply.
I’m not sure what this all means, except the ideas shared with me about life, and the magnitude of the journey, was fascinating. It felt like I just received a huge lesson from the Tao.
