FOREWORDFollowing my course in energy manipulation ("You and yourbody"), I have received some requests for an advanced coursein that field. However, I have been reluctant to write one forvarious reasons, of which the foremost now is the risk that theinterest in energy manipulation will divert your attention fromthe bigger picture, as is the case with any engagements.Energy manipulation is indeed a good eye-opener and tool, butyou shouldn't get stuck in it; there is more to learn, which I willattempt to show you. The course in energy manipulation that Ihave written deals only with the body, and now it's time to addanother dimension to that. And our chosen method will bemeditation. Thus, here is my basic course in meditation.STRUCTUREThere will be a bit more theory than in my previous course, butfeel free to skip to the exercises if that's not your cup of tea.The overall goal of the meditations in this course is to startopening up the crown chakra, ultimately in order to accesswhat I call the spiritual realm. The expected time frame for thiscourse is about 6-12 months. I recommend that you practice atleast once every three days, and if it becomes too monotonousworking on just one exercise you can take a break from thatand experiment with what you've already learned for a whileand then eventually get back to doing the exercise again.PREREQUISITES & CONSIDERATIONSIt will likely help a lot if you have mastered my course inenergy manipulation, as you will need the acquiredconcentration and understanding of energy. It's also my duty toissue a fair warning for the inexperienced: The exercises in thiscourse will bring about a sizeable and difficult-to-reversechange in your world view as well as your body, so proceedwith that in mind. Take this warning seriously and proceed onlyif you're willing to have radically new experiences and insights.
