From that point on, pay close attention to what you may feel, sounds or words that may come into your mind, and so on. The more you do it, the easier it should be to instigate and then develop.… a tingle, a sense of magic in the air, a fleeting moment of something strange, haunting and attractive. Everything may shimmer into another reality. You may think you see sparkling lights in the air, or hear a tune floating in the ether. The trees or plants may seem to change color.
Your attention is attracted to this new reality, but there is no blatantly obvious signal from the spirit world – no deva dressed up in uniform to greet you. You want a more obvious signal but you do not get it. So you let the experience pass. But your nervous system was indeed registering some deva presence and activity.
If you want to explore what’s really happening you need to pause, relax and monitor what else you are feeling. This is not difficult. Be still and receptive, and wait to see what you feel and sense. The challenge is to monitor these magical moments and stretch them for longer than a few seconds. But don’t expect any more flashing lights and tinkling sounds. Open the door to your inner perceptions. Go quiet and monitor the subtle impressions that you perceive.
First, place yourself in a situation where there are devas you want to meet, and where you feel comfortable. ….. Here is a short list of possibilities you might like to explore:
• In your home – a spirit of the household.
• Next to a favourite plant – deva of the plant.
• In a church, temple, synagogue or other place of worship – angel of worship.
• Outside in beautiful landscape – landscape deva/angel.
• If there is a park or church, river or mountain, where you have always felt a presence, those are also good places to start.
Then, when you are ready, use a technique to get quiet and centered…… Remember that an attitude of patient acceptance is the key.
Remember that an excited body or personality will prevent you sensing the subtle presence. Equally, do not be too serious or earnest. Just be relaxed and philosophical. Sit there waiting with no expectations.
When you feel ready, but without changing your quiet mood, let your attention drift to scan and feel the air around you. Give very quiet attention to what you are sensing. Your mind may want to protest or question. Gently accept whatever your mind does.
Then, in a style that suits your personality, with or without words, acknowledge the presence of the deva. I know you are here. I acknowledge and recognize your presence.
Ps 71 – 74
The following from the book is worth passing on also. He goes on to talk about the different types of devas – their planes and vibrations – although many of you will be aware of this already. Here’s an early part of that.
Naturally it’s also relevant to point out that the reverse is also true. You can block out any energy from other realms that you don’t wish to deal with by deliberately getting busy, focusing your mind strongly on something else, exercising, watching TV, listening to music, and so on. In other words, do all the things most people do each day that prevents them from enjoying working with the Elementals.Some devas are like us, simultaneously focused at different levels, but others have specific energy fields in which they work. Nature spirits, for example, are bound to have much of their focus in the dimension of physical vitality or prana, the field of energy which vitalises all living creatures. A cherub of devotional religious ceremony may be principally focused in the realm of emotion. An inspiring muse of architecture may be focused only in the energy field of thought. Similarly, a gnome is predominantly focused in earth, a salamander in fire, a sylph in air, and an undine in water.
Focusing elsewhere works no matter how aggressive that being in other densities may be in trying to get your attention. I learned first-hand that this works when I wanted to block out that ‘boyfriend’ when he became too difficult to handle. Persevering to the point where he just gaveup was the key.
