"For any person, a certain organ can be the source of nightmares. Each person, of course is unique. A person might mention they've experienced a nightmare. The nightmare may be trying to inform the person a certain organ needs particular nutrients, elements. As we've discussed the chakras also need particular nutrients, elements. Certain emotions also live in the chakras. Limiting emotions can block off certain areas of the body. An individual, then, can utilize this approach (hypnosis and dream analysis) as a possible preventive medicine warding off illness in certain prone areas of the body." "Once this instrument [the lute Kuan Yin was playing] is correctly tuned and kept tuned any amount of chaos won't matter, won't effect it," remarks Kuan Yin. ("Of course," explains Lena, "this is Kuan Yin's metaphor for keeping the body chakras well-tuned. She's telling me this is a continuation of her message concerning the effects of sound and vibrations upon physicality. She is also saying that the power of sound (and pulse) is why music is so calming and comforting.") "I wish someone would do sound tuning of the chakras. Sound comes first in the universe. We're all made of sound. Kuan Yin then described a computerized devise that could measure and adjust the sound vibration for each chakra: "It would be like having one's hearing checked. Only one would be working with the energy centers-the chakras. Individuals could get more in touch with their own pulses and their relationship with sound. It would feel really good and could possibly be used for pain management. There will be in the coming years a proportionally larger group of the elderly in your society. People will live longer. However, they will have many misalignments in the chakras. Sound therapy could be very soothing as well as help an individual to adjust, to be ready to move on to the next life."
Lena explains what Kuan Yin is telling her about the EEG periodicities: "These protective elements (the brainwaves) help our human bodies function and survive on this earth plane. However, this discussion involves the soul. Gravity holds our physical bodies in place. Our skin holds the spirit in place. Heavy layers of energy, karma (around the earth and the body), weigh us down. Every layer is different. The brain waves represent the different layers of consciousness. Each brainwave is a sort of gelatinous substance; layer upon layer; much like the onionskin metaphor. Accessing a certain layer accesses certain abilities [i.e. trance skills in the alpha range, dream abilities in the theta range, etc.]. They all work together perfectly. When an individual "hits" a certain layer, he can work (heal) certain issues.
Youth is a beautiful dream, on whose brightness books shed a blinding dust. Will ever the day come when the wise link the joy of knowledge to youth's dream? Will ever the day come when Nature becomes the teacher of man, humanity his book and life his school? Youth's joyous purpose cannot be fulfilled until that day comes. Too slow is our march toward spiritual elevation, because we make so little use of youth's ardor.
“Continue in the direction of the Pyramids”, said the alchemist. “And continue to pay heed to the omens. Your heart is still capable of showing you where the treasure is.”
“Is that the one thing I still need to know?”
“No”, the alchemist answered. “What you still need to know is this: before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we’ve learned as we’ve moved toward that dream. That’s the point at which, as we say in the language of the desert, one ‘dies of thirst just when the palm trees have appeared on the horizon.’
“Every search begins with beginner’s luck. And every search ends with the victor’s being severely tested.”
