A Pondering Poet~

Echoing Resolve


Easy river run
down vast beauty light
in morning dawn
crest before my eyes

For autumn rain has gone
sparking light of silver grace
now lay peaceful strokes
on hillside of new day

Each thought still remain
in splashed hues of poetic verse
a quenching bath of love
upon soft sky of birth








I See -

Blog Posted:5/7/2012 4:45:00 PM

Now, don't think I'm nuts


Have you ever layed silent

resting in bliss

and, with eyes closed

looked through your lids

There's A Realm Out there

If you have a hard time doing it........Then close your eyes and look at a bright object / The Sun / a light Bulb / etc.........until you learn to SEE / your eyes might try to open...It's an art to keep them closed and see

When you lie down at night give it a try

let your eyes focus on the energy realm

it's out there.

(Through your eye lids)

I, myself, can see my energy shell with my eyes closed....my arms, my stomach, my legs

I'm not kinding.......


I see Purple clouds


white dots of light

and images

You can laugh and disregard...or truly look out and beyond

God bless

rick, i feel with you.. when i meditate or simply close my eyes in silence, a kind of light forms on the forehead and up the crown... or when i do focus on a bulb a similar image flashes when i slit my eyes... the chakras align and the energy field vibrates as one; it is a spiritual experience for me... such bliss!... thanks too for appreciating my " fire" piece... huggs to you!:)

Ignore wot I typed below. It is all fiction. People who see a supposed "energy realm" should filter their tap water ha ha!

"Do you see wot I see?" Hehe - yeah, I am not sure if this is the same thing, but after doing copious amounts of magic mushrooms, I "see" auras around everything, including trees. Magic mushrooms tear open your pineal gland(third eye - size of a pea, located in the centre of the two hemispheres in your brain). Once the pineal gland has dilated, changing shape, so that the wings open up(one wing per hemisphere), your sixth sense picks up all of the energy around. Obviously every living organism has a current flowing through and from it. Higher order mammals emit brain waves from their skulls at quite a distance, depending on the type of wave/frequency. Our brains can receive waves just as strongly as transmitting them. Even something quirky like a duckbilled platypus strictly hunts and evades other animals by feeling out the wave frequencies emitted - they don't use sight, touch, hearing or smell to "read" the surrounding environment, but instead, pick up magnetic/energy fields(although the platypus' sense of sight and smell is far more heightened than a human's). They are simply amazing receivers, with an electro-magnetic receiver built into their bill. The human brain has all of the hardware required to properly receive and categorize wave frequencies. To begin reading these energy fields as colours, is just a baby step towards harnessing the pure potential of our brains.

Ladies, Make sure you look out into that energy.....FOCUS....through closed eyes. And yes it is the "Third Eye" Catie. I believe it to be the spirit realm/energy realm/ it is just amazing. Don't worry Mandy, I "BELIEVE" you

Paula, I also have difficulty sleeping, and go in 2-3 hour naps. Rick, I see colors with my eyes closed, but then still see them with my eyes open. It is a genetic disorder that eventually will cause me to go blind. These are bright colors, like light, and they often flash off and on. Then i know I must lay down, but I still see them for hours. This is probably not what you meant.

Yes!! I have done exactly that, and first will see the "negative" of whatever I had been looking at, then....I can see a the (as you called it) energy realm. No you are not "nuts"! If you are...then I too am Nuttier than a fruitcake!

You may not believe it but i have always been able to see with my eyes closed, I can lie their as you say just looking and it is amazing what colours are in your head the fantastic burts of light, take it a step further, hold you hand up and look at it with closed eyes, move it, you will be able to see it, I thinks its because the mind is so clever it knows what to form even down to the wiggling fingers. I am an insomniac as well so get plenty of time to practise xx
