Higher Self Meditation – Original Form & Original Formless United

Open yourself to a timeless state of oneness as your consciousness is guided into a samadhi state – the unity of form and formless awareness.

At the most fundamental level, at the beginning of everything, there is formless awareness and the forms that occupy it. Break down the Universe any way you wish, use any philosophical or scientific system, and the destination is the same. Everything and every no-thing is a combination of form and formless awareness.

The truth is that form and formless awareness are constantly existing in a state of unity, however that is not most people’s experience. Only the enlightened have experienced this state of unity.

Until we experience this unity state within our own consciousness, we will continue to suffer and desire happiness.

How do we have a genuine experience of this unity state?

Follow this Higher Self channeled guided meditation and enter deeper states of your eternal Self.

Blessings and Love.

    Hi Lincoln,

    again a great video which comes to the heart of the matter. Please I would be interested in your view on these two topics:

    1) There is physical, astral and mental space, but Awareness as such is beyond space;(and time); it is spacious, but would you agree that, strictly speaking, the term “space of awareness” is misleading?

    2) Realizing the purusa/soul/individual root of consciousness in the hridayam is an important step, but it still is not God-realization as the same must be found everywhere, not only in oneself. In this context Kashmir Shaivims speaks about the five “kanchukas” which operate as additional sheaths, shielding individual awareness from Absolute Awareness.

    Namaste!

    Hello Andreas. Thank you for your comment. I appreciate your interest in my video teachings. Here are my answers.

    1) The Higher Self guides people to focus on the qualities of emptiness, space, silence and stillness to bring them into a deeper experience of awareness. Our awareness exists in every dimension of form. If a person is instructed to “notice their awareness” they will often perceive their awareness focused in the face/head area. This is the location of the waking consciousness – the awareness associated with the physical dimension. While feeling the awareness focused in the face/head will help to silence the thoughts and still the emotions, it will also keep the person feeling the human personality and staying in the physical reality.

    To help a person experience their awareness of the other dimensions (astral, causal and spiritual/soul/pure consciousness) it is helpful and effective to direct their awareness to focus upon the formless qualities of the present moment – emptiness, space, silence and stillness. This helps the consciousness free itself from form-based identification and thus be able to come closer to perceiving awareness alone.

    It is the movement of forms that attracts the awareness to focus on the various dimensions. Stronger sounds attract our awareness to focus upon them, for example. If we direct our awareness to the formless qualities, we support an expansion of perception and the freedom from form-based identification. My experience is that focusing on the qualities of emptiness, space, silence and stillness is one of the most effective ways to expand our consciousness and remove our identification with the personal self.

    2) There are degrees to which a person experiences the Spiritual Heart (hridayam). When the awareness is fully absorbed into the Spiritual Heart then the Light of Consciousness shines alone. The experience of the Spiritual Heart when still awakening will be felt as a small location in the center of the chest. The more the Spiritual Heart experience awakens, the larger the energy felt will expand, eventually filling one’s entire field of awareness and replacing all other forms in perception.

    The five sheaths are also spoken of in some teaching of yoga. They call them koshas. I reference the koshas often in my videos. One of my most recent interviews may interest you. He asked me about the sheaths and I shared my experiential understanding. Lincoln’s 2nd Buddha at the Gas Pump Interview

    Thank you for your comment Andreas. I hope that my answers help to clarify these aspects of my teachings. I wish you peace, happiness, love and success on your soul’s journey. Namaste.

    Hi Lincoln,

    thank you! Yes, meditation on space, space between sounds, sights, sensations of the body, thoughts, emotions, etc. is the most effective way to transcend them.

    The 5 kanchukas are NOT the 5 sheaths of the yoga sutras which must havebeen already penetrated to reach the soul in the heart! They are additional coveerings which separate the individual soul from the Absolute.

    Namaste!

    Hello Andreas,

    Please tell me if these are the 5 kanchukas that you are referring to. I have copied this text from another website.

    “Kanchuka is a Sanskrit word which literally translates to “sheath” or “envelope”. They are five in number, and together they act as a shell which veils the consciousness and separates the observing individual from its pure and absolute form. Each kanchuka limits the dynamic and creative power of the individual in a certain aspect:

    Kalaa – that which limits the power to do all;
    Avidya vidya – that which limits the power to know all;
    Raga – that which creates desire and attachment, thus giving rise to unceasing discontentment;
    Kaala – that which limits perpetual existence by creating the notion of time, related to the changes in life, namely: birth, growth, ripening, waning, and perishing;
    Niyati – that which limits free will by creating the notion of fate and destiny, thus binding the individual to the endless cycle of birth and death.”

    If these are the correct descriptions, then I can respond by saying that I understand these to be characteristic of the “lower self” that separate the personal self from a greater experience of the Higher Self state. In my experience the Higher Self possesses all of the qualities that are described when the kanchukas are removed.

    Hi Lincoln,

    yes this is the definition – it comes from Kashmir Shaivism, in my opinion the superior system of Indian spirituality.According to this teaching, the purusa in the hridayam, the soul, is beyond the personal self but attached to the five koshas. When one pierces them (the koshas), one is self-realized, but still not God-realized. Penetrating the kanchukas, too, one achieves God-realization. Obviously you place the Higher Self there, beyond also time and space and so on.

    Thank you!

    Namaste!

    My soul rejoice in meditative State, often before I entered into pure light, I first smell a flower like fragrances which is not of this world, then endowed with peace I visited different realm of reality. This happened usually when I sit in full lotus position in silence, but once in a while, it happens when I am at work while driving school bus with 40+ energetic kids on a busy traffic road, focused and activly interacting with surroundings. If I could be bias, I would say heaven on Earth is the most delicious taste of life. “The whole path of mindfulness is this: Whatever you are doing, be aware of it.” ~ Dipa Ma

    “A Buddha is not a man of concentration, he is a man of awareness. He has not been trying to narrow down his consciousness; on the contrary, he has been trying to drop all barriers so that he becomes totally available to existence. Watch… existence is simultaneous. I am speaking here and the traffic noise is simultaneous. The train, the birds the wind blowing through the trees – in this moment the whole of existence converges. You listening to me, I speaking to you, and millions of things going on – it is tremendously rich.” ~ Rajneesh
