Continuing Your Instinctual Training

Imagine a deer in the forest. The forest is dense but it is possible to move through it. There are leaves on the ground - it is towards the time of Fall. The deer is within your view - perhaps 50 yards away. It is quietly eating.

You have not moved nor are you actually physically present - you are only there in your imagination. Suddenly for no apparent reason, the deer runs away. What happened?

This is a instinctual reaction. It is my intention to help you to become safe in a world which is often not safe - how to do that. I've been building on this training for some time. Today I want to support your training by providing a little more.

Now I'd like you to imagine being that deer in the forest. It doesn't have to be any particular deer that you've seen or known or that you have been near. Just any deer you can imagine being.

Feel your legs on the ground. Feel your deer body. Notice the heightened state of alertness you have. You can eat, you can chew, you can be amongst other deer but always there is a feeling around the outside of your body of an awareness. Not exactly a prickly sensation but an awareness.

Suddenly you have the urgent need to move quickly in a specific direction - now here's where human beings and animals differ. A human being might think about it, might rationalize why but you as the deer immediately move off quickly in the direction that physically feels the best.

This is something I'd like you to try as a meditation or as a visualization because it's important to recognize the physical feelings in your body that occur when you feel the need to move off in some other direction.

I know sometimes you won't be able to do it and you'll just have to move through whatever it is that is frightening your body but if you know what the feeling is then you will be able to prepare yourself in some way or be more alert. This is the training I offer you today.

Now there's a part 2:

Suppose you cannot move away rapidly like the deer from something that feels dangerous, then I recommend you do this. First, quickly say to yourself the following Living Prayer, "I am asking to be insulated and protected from harm now in the safest and most benevolent way for me."

After you say that to yourself - try to say it out loud - you can whisper it but if you cannot say anything out loud or even whisper then think it to yourself.

After you do that then request that as much gold light and benevolent energy be with you as you can comfortably assimilate. You may feel a shift.

Some of you might feel a sense of being physically bigger. This is a good feeling because it creates an actual stimulation of a signal to others that whatever or whoever is approaching is big and/or potentially frightening. It doesn't necessarily scare people because human beings, as I say, might rationalize - well what might it be - and wait and see but it could very easily create a field effect that generates a reaction in human beings or possibly even animals and for those that pay attention to their reactions they might move off and you might be safer.

This is something that I feel is important training for you all in the world in which we live.

It cannot be used as some kind of an offensive system - meaning like a weapon because there are checks that I've managed to put into place to keep that from happening.

However it can be used to increase a safety zone around you when moving through a situation that may be dangerous or may be nerve racking in some way.

Remember this is not something you can do very easily when operating machinery, nor do I recommend it for planes in flight and so on - as some instruments might be delicate. Generally speaking it is safe to do if you are say, ten or fifteen feet away from such instruments or more but if you are operating the plane yourself then you may wish to consider some other means of generating safety.

This is what I recommend for you in your homework today. For those of you who may be interested I have also compiled a book called Techniques for Generating Safety which you can obtain at

Goodlife to you all. I will say more about these things in the world of instinct as time goes on.

Animals - They Can Point Us In The Right Direction

Have you ever had an experience with your cat or dog or even a cat or dog that you may know or are passing by - will they ever come up and very delicately touch you - sometimes with their nose, more often with their tail or some other part of their body - it is very delicate and it is not meant to be a more aggressive encounter.

There is something special going on here. Sometimes a animal that is a pet or even one that you are around a great deal will perform such a touch.

There is even the occurrence for those of you who are sensitive to it that this can even be a spirit animal - perhaps one that you have known or one that simply has a sense of affection for you may also make such a touch. It will be very light but it will definitely be physical.

What are these things about? Animals including animal spirits have an awareness of how very influential they are in our lives.

We often need help - I do, you do, we all do - and sometimes help from another human being, no matter how much we appreciate that, is not enough. Sometimes we say to the sky, the walls, our world or God, "Help, I need help" and sometimes it comes in this form.

Oh yes - it is wonderful to have a dog or a cat or other pet to be affectionate with, to have them be affectionate and loyal with you - oh yes. That can be very wonderful but I'm referring to these very special occasions when they touch you very lightly.

Very often what that means is that point of contact on your body would be good for you to touch. Take note of the next time it happens but only when they touch you very lightly and then back off or go on about their life.

Touch yourself in that same spot if you can. Perhaps it is a very small spot and a single finger will work - or two fingers but if it is a large spot then use your hand. I would recommend using your right hand but if you can't reach then try using your left hand.

Of course sometimes you won't be able to reach, so you will just have to wait for them to touch you again - but try putting your hand or finger on that spot and just see what happens. Sometimes it can be very calming, other times even more so - genuinely relaxing and even other times some feeling of discomfort you have might lessen to a degree or more.

This is another wonderful thing that animals, especially our pets, do for us and I wanted to share it with you.

Animals Do Teach Us

Do you know that there are some animals on this planet that are able to teach by more than example. They are able to provide sounds that are meaningful to us.

We as human beings get used to the idea that there are other beings on the planet - we have all gotten used to that. We see the animals that we know and love and we also see other animals that we just have to get accustomed to whether we like them or not - and of course there are the birds and the fish and all others that we live amongst.

I have said here for some time and in print as well that the animals are not here to learn anything - this is what I've been taught and this is what I believe after years of experience. They are here to teach - yes by example but there is more. Some animals can actually make sounds that are not for them.

Today I will give you such an example that is a sound meant exclusively for the use of human beings. This is the sound,"eeeeeeeeeyaaaoooooo." [Pronunciation: e as in seed, y as in yes, a as in ah, o as in zoo.]

This sound is provided by a being - you understand a type of being - that is very popular on Earth and that is the cat. The house cat, as we call them, make this sound to us.

It is largely misinterpreted as being meow but in fact there is no m. If you listen to it when a cat says this to you, this is an actual suggestion that the cat is giving. It is not simply because they cannot make the m sound - there is no m sound.

Do you know - they do not make this sound to each other. For those of you who have lived around cats and have noticed them interacting with each other - they do not make this sound to each other. They might glance up, look at a human being and make that sound.

Now why are they giving us that message. Those who live around cats know that cats will often take on energies, especially for a beloved human being that they live with, that can only be described as some suffering or aspect of disease or discomfort that the human being is either going through or could go through with some harm to the human being.

To a degree the cat can transform that energy into something more comfortable but there is also the fact that sometimes they will take on something and it will cause the cat to get ill. This is not always the case, of course, why cats get ill but it is sometimes the case - and I might add that dogs and other creatures that live with us do this as well.

Cats however, are able to give this message. Some of you have actually had the experience where a cat will stop and stare right at you and make this sound. Of course, many times it's like talking to a young child isn't it - that's our reaction - we don't know what that means.

"What is it dear. Are you hungry? Do you need to go out?" In short, we go through the guessing game - what does it mean - and while it might be simply that the cat would also like something to eat and would also like to go out that's fine but it's not that exclusively. There's more to it than that.

Eeeeeeeeeyaaaoooooo is a sound that is meant for us to make out loud and it will reduce our level of stress in our physical world.

It can actually be used before a stressful situation if you know one is coming up. If you say the sound out loud about 4 or 5 times or more if it feels comfortable or reassuring then it will help to head off a degree of the impact of the stress upon you. Sometimes you can be doing other things and say the sound and it will be calming.

I'm not sure if it could be used safely when driving a car or operating machinery but I feel it can be used in the middle of the day - say on a coffee break. You can say it quietly but my feeling is that it is important to say it out loud in some way even if it is almost a whisper. The physical sound seems to help. I have tried it and it does work.

So - I'm not saying it's a cure-all but I am saying that when we begin to make the sound ourselves and use it in our lives and memorize it for ourselves - I think you'll find that most cats do not say, "eeeeeeeeeyaaaoooooo" to you anymore unless they feel that you have forgotten to say the sound, you're in a stressful situation and if you just say the sound now - you'll feel better.

Now, don't take this as a reason to not to check to see if the cat needs to go outside or needs something to eat. It's just something I felt I'd pass on to you at this time because it's a beautiful example of how animals teach.

Addendum To More On Instinctual Training, Part 2

Some of you may have noticed this comment and my answer in the comments section of More On Instinctual Training, Part 2.

I was unable to make actual links in the comment section so I thought I would reproduce it here and perhaps you will be able to actually use the links which are in order if you care to study more about long touch and long vision which are actually posts that are background material for the instinctual training.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "More On Instinctual Training, Part 2":

I came across your blog for the first time today, and am drawn to share with you a 'game' I sometimes play. In order to sharpen my intuition, I will throw my awareness around a blind corner I'm approaching to detect if anyone is there. Needless to say, I'm walking when I do this, not driving! Usually it comes to mind to do this when I'm in a hurry and don't want to run into someone. I seem to have a high level of 'success'.

Greetings Anonymous Writer. Thank you for your comment. It does allow me to add some correlation. I appreciate you speaking of your experience. I do have some experience that is similar.

One of them comes under the loose application of a form of long touch and here are some titles of posts where you can find material of interest along the lines of long touch and long vision as well.

Capacity To See Beyond
Long Touch - A Beginning Of Much More To Come
Long Touch Homework - Part 2, 3 And More
Long Vision
Long Touch - Benevolence And Application
Feeling Beyond
Feeling Beyond, Part 2
Long Touch: Feeling Beyond, Part 3

And also it is simply possible to expand our contact awareness - so I know what you're talking about.

As you probably know, it is important to not be too open when you do this given that if you feel something uncomfortable it is best to pull back and as is the purpose, that I gather of your remote extension, if you'd felt that you would perhaps take a different route.

More On Instinctual Training, Part 2

I began this talk last time on Benevolent Magic . Today I want to talk a little something about instinct and your instinctual body. I have spoken about these matters before but I will speak again.

Your instinctual body is made up of your physical self, your feeling self and your spiritual self. It is not really a portion of your mind though you will use your mind to understand it and that's why I'm writing about it.

For now I would like to say that homework is useful. Here's some homework. Utilizing what you've built on before, now I'm going to recommend that you try something very gentle as a refresher course.

Stand in a room where you are familiar with the surroundings. Ideally, it is to be a room without furniture or at least with as little as possible but if you cannot change the way the room is then move very slowly when you are doing the work - and by very slowly I mean just barely.

Close your eyes and ask yourself first, "Am I ready to do this?" If you feel, not just think, if you feel a sense of - yes - then with your eyes closed move - if you like - in any direction. As practice be aware of what is in front of you, and by the way make sure there's no one else in the room. It's alright if there is the beloved pet in the room but not one that might get underfoot. It is best to do it without another human being in the room.

Move very slowly forward, perhaps there's a chair there in your way or a table. You will know with your eyes closed just about how far you will go before you touch it. Move very slowly because you will probably contact that piece of furniture soon.

Then what you do once you contact it with your legs or body, then open your eyes, turn to your left and go back to the center of the room or where you started.

Turn around a few times. You may or may not realize where you are. Again, move very slowly - if you feel a sensation that something is in front of you - stop - this is with your eyes closed you understand - don't proceed any further - it might be a wall or a chair or a table or something else.

If you feel the sensation fading, then wait and move forward again very slowly - make sure this is a room without any hazards - alright. If you feel that sensation again, stop and wait. If the sensation does not go away or only slightly lessens - open your eyes and see where you are.

You can do this practice for a time. I will say more about the instinctual body as time goes on. This is a refresher course and I want you to become aware that I will speak on this kind of thing much more in the future especially as it correlates to our relations with animals and what we can learn from them.

We all are human beings and we have a great deal in common with the animals. The animals know all about instincts - we are made up of the same stuff they are. The reason they do not have difficulties - like we do - with their lives is that they are not here to learn anything. We are here to learn but they are here to teach.

It will be my intention to incorporate the animal capabilities in the most benevolent way in our instinctual training in the future. More on that soon.

Communion, Part 2

Now let us continue from last time. Last time we stood off at a distance yes - and felt the tree without touching it. Today we will do more.

This time I would like you to approach the tree - don't touch it just yet - just approach it but get within a capacity to touch it - meaning just be - say a foot or two away or be able to approach it and touch it.

Try to do this at a time when other human beings are not touching the tree - that's really important. So if you need to bring a friend who will ask other human beings to keep from touching the tree while you are there, explaining that you are involved in a spiritual growth function or some other polite reason, that would be best.

Now, if you do have a friend there though it would be best that they be a little distance away - ten feet would be good at least and not in your line of sight.

Now this is what to do - when you are standing near the tree move your shoulders a bit, alright, move them around. And by the way for those of you who may not be able to stand - might be in a wheelchair for example, that's perfectly alright. You don't have to stand to do this but if you can, move your shoulders around.

Then the arm that you use to touch things, alright, be it your right or left - move that arm around especially near the shoulder. After that flex your arm at the elbow. Then after that move your hand back and forth and around flexing it at the wrist. This is all to bring your attention within your physical body. Again as I said last time I don't want you to go out of your physical body - you must stay in contact with your physical body to do this.

Then this is what to do - when you feel a distinct sense of being in your physical body - meaning you're moving your hand around, you're moving your arm around - then you can relax that motion. Reach out and touch the trunk of the tree.

This is what you do - extend your sense of touch - don't go out of your body just extend your sense of touch so that the tree becomes as if a portion of your own body. By allowing the tree to be an extension of your own body this is a much greater intimacy between you and this other form of life.

Some of you will have a pronounced feeling of a change of density as your sense of awareness of your own physical body down through your arm and into your hand and thence into the tree takes place.

Make sure if it is comfortable that you keep your hand, or fingertips if that's more comfortable, on the tree. Then allow your feelings to move throughout the tree - don't push your feelings you understand - your physical feelings - don't push it anywhere.

It may not go much farther than where you're touching the tree but for some of you it might go down into roots. For others it might go up into the tree - into branches or leaves or needles. Just let what happens happen.

Don't at that point try to get a message - don't ask for a message and simply be as receptive as possible.

If it doesn't feel comfortable to do this with the tree then break contact immediately. Step back - say, "Goodlife" and go on to another tree but since you will possibly have been working with this tree - for those of you who could approach a tree - then it is alright. The tree will have some familiarity with you but for those of you who were at a distance and could not get closer to the tree, as mentioned last time, then you will have to go to a different tree that you can approach.

After you have completed this and hold your hand on the tree for as long as you like, up to two or three minutes is fine, then break contact with the tree - pull your hand back you understand - and only put one hand on the tree - not both - pull your hand back and wait a moment. Don't step back immediately - wait a moment and then see if you get a picture, an image, a word, any inspiration.

If you don't, don't worry about it. You have already had a spiritual experience by extending into another form of life that is safe for you to touch. Some of you might have an experience later in a dream but for this moment after breaking contact with the tree, move back slowly.

After you get about six to eight feet away from the tree - face the tree and say, "Goodlife" and "Thank you."

This training may allow some of you to receive some wisdom or a vision from the tree. If the wisdom or the vision is uncomfortable you do not have to take it on - simply let it go.

Don't be concerned that you will be leaving some portion of yourself in the tree, that will migrate out of the tree shortly after you break contact - that's why you stand near the tree for a moment - because there is more going on here than may meet the eye.

For you see - when you touch the tree and move into the tree - extending, you understand, yourself into the tree - the tree also moves into you. That's why you can feel the change of density because it's an exchange. So not only will you be receiving the portions of you you extended into the tree when you stepped back from it that short distance but the tree will also retrieve the portions of its being that it has extended into you.

This is a technique we will use many times in the future for some of you do have the capacity and if you've been reading Benevolent Magic blog and Mystical Man blog you may have had some of this training already either in the comments area or in the posts themselves. Regardless, it is something you can do to contact other forms of life and perhaps receive messages from them.

One word of advice here which is absolutely critical - never do this with a human being - there's a reason. The reason is that it could confuse your own body as to what is you and what is the other person.

Of course you often contact other people physically but you do not make an effort to extend into their bodies in this way.

This kind of thing is possible but only in the closest possible relationships - it's not something you do to get closer in a relationship but it is something that can be done in the closest possible relationships. I may say something about that here someday but it is unlikely for now - that training is very advanced indeed and requires significant safeguards which I have already put into place for some of you who may accidentally do this.

Now, if you get a message or a vision remember that it is to be considered something that is from the tree. It may not be specifically for you, it might simply be for human beings at large. If however - it feels personal then it is worth thinking about or considering and checking with other sources you may have, to confirm whether it is in fact personally true for you or meant as a general message for all.

Give it a try, see how you like it. We'll do more along these lines before too long.

For sometime now, beings on Earth - not humans, have been attempting to teach Earth humans the wisdom that they have been saving. This is not wisdom that they need for themselves but rather wisdom retained exclusively for us.

There is only one way to receive it though - short of a benevolent contact - meaning perhaps in the form of a vision or an inspiration. The nice thing about this, that I'm going to share with you though, is that it might get some of you out into the woods in some benevolent place or perhaps simply outside to contact nature a bit more closely.

For today I'm going to suggest a tree. It is not too complicated for most of you. This is what I recommend - go out somewhere outdoors. See if you can find a tree that is not overwhelmed by human contact - so ideally it might be in the forrest someplace or it might simply be in a place that's not very accessible by most human beings - perhaps on the side of a hill.

You can grasp by my suggestion that it does not require that you touch the tree - as a matter of fact that may not even be desirable. As long as you can see it however - and while you can look at it through a telescope or binoculars or some other magnifying instrument it is important when you are attempting to contact the tree that you are looking at it just with your eyes and if you wear glasses or contact lenses you can have those on as well. So even though you might look at it through a magnifying instrument, if it is far away, when you are looking at it to make contact set aside the magnifying instrument.

Now this is what to do - if you can get close to the tree get no closer then six feet from the lowest bough. If the boughs are not that low to the ground then get no closer then ten feet to the trunk of the tree.

Then this is what I recommend, it might take a moment but it will be worth doing, first I want you to look at the tree and say, "Goodlife." If there are people nearby but not too close alright you can say in a whisper, "Goodlife" but make sure you say it with your eyes open directed towards the tree.

After that imagine yourself being inside the trunk of the tree and imagine flowing up into the tree, into the boughs, into the needles or the leaves that the tree has.

It is alright to do this no matter what the weather even if it is a dormant time for the tree it is alright.

Then if you can, feel the sunlight - or perhaps it's at night then feel the moonlight on the boughs of the tree - the branches that is you understand - or on the leaves or needles.

See if you can feel it - stay in your body because you'll need your feelings and see if you can feel a sense of contact. Some of you might get a message, some of you might see a picture, some of you might have a sense of physical feeling - we'll say more about that next time but for now make contact in this fashion.

It would be best to do this with an older tree - one that has been on the planet, growing on the surface you understand, for a long time so that it may have some wealth of experience in interacting with human beings - perhaps even at a distance but there will also be interaction with other forms of life including spirit.

Oh yes, trees are well aware of spirits - their own and others and it is within the core of their spiritual being that they retain these messages for us all. I'll say more about this next time.

Our Feeling Guides Are All Around Us

You've noticed haven't you, our love affair with cows. Of course cheese um-hmm - yes and milk and ice cream - all these wonderful things that we sometimes take for granted but you know - cows are more than that.

In recent years they've become a popular symbol and over time have developed an image like an icon but have you ever looked at a cows eyes - they are feelings itself. Do you know, as I've been taught, cows directly reflect the feelings of Mother Earth and cows are here, aside from the great benefit they provide for us - yes, cows are here to show Mother Earth how much she is respected and loved and to show us how much we respect and love Mother Earth.

There is a time now - happening right now that allows us to experience much more in the way of instant knowing. Instant knowing is only occasionally a thought, yes, a couple of words - an inspiration perhaps and under that inspiration that is poking up like a plant in the spring - under it is a vast reservoir of knowledge and wisdom.

We are all learning now what our feelings mean, how they can be interpreted and how they can best benefit us.

If you wish to have a lesson, next time you have an opportunity to look a cow - not a bull but a cow in the eyes it might be something worth doing.

Glance at the cow and notice the expression, for they are very revealing in their feelings, in their eyes. Then relax for a moment and feel as much as you can - love and kindness in general. When you feel it open your eyes again and see if you can glance at either another cow or the same one and look at the expression in their eyes while you are feeling those feelings. You will get a nice feedback there.

This is not a talk today designed to fire you up to save Mother Earth or to save cows though that is something I believe is at least in the back of our minds and perhaps at the forefront of our hearts. It is rather a gentle reminder how very often the creatures that are around us reflect so very much the true nature of Mother Earth's personality.

How We Can Serve Earth And Her Peoples

As I have been saying for some time - now that Earth needs to look after herself now - to move her body, to move certain things of her own for herself, to check on her condition - so it is up to us with our good works applied benevolently through the use either of Benevolent Magic or Living Prayer or other prayers and other methods to look after the surface dwellers - the visitors if you like - on Mother Earth.

I know we like to think that Creator does all of this for us but I believe and have been taught that Creator wants us to learn how to look after all beings for ourselves. That's why we're here - to learn Creator's ways in the most benevolent way, I believe.

So my feeling is this - it would be good for us to get into the habit every day of doing some benevolent gesture or perhaps a Living Prayer - whatever is your style of service to support life here.

Consider the animals - so many different species. Consider the plants also - so very many species. It might be something to consider saying a prayer or a Living Prayer always requesting that the most benevolent energies be available for you during that prayer and when you feel them to pause with whatever you are saying because the energies come in and support what you are saying and when they are there they do not speak but you feel it as energy you see - to let you know that they are there - that they are working to support what you are requesting.

So while the unspoken energy is there, pause until it begins to fade a bit which means that it is taking the action - alright - that you have requested in the best and most benevolent way possible and then continue with the words and if you feel the energy present again - pause again.

If when you say it you do not feel the energy at all then just say the Living Prayer or your own prayer slowly so as to allow the energies to resonate with it when they are able.

I'd recommend that you pick a species of animal or plant and say a prayer for each one once a day - by this I do not mean over and over again. I mean pick say, a dandelion one day - just for example or say - a cat or a dog - any kind another day or pick say - horses or pick butterflies or pick cedar trees - something like that and every day say something for one species. Try to just make it one species per day.

Of course if you wish to say something overall you could just say for example, "I am asking that all species of all beings on the Earth be insulated and protected from harm and that all those attempting to harm any species also be insulated and protected from harm."

There's a reason we say it like this. The purpose is not to cast blame here for sometimes the reason that beings do harm is not purposeful, not intentional. It is just something that happens in the course of doing something else and other times there is no intent to attack specifically - it has to do with a drive or need of a being or a type of being. Casting blame only creates more problems.

I find that it is much better to say, in my case, a Living Prayer that addresses a situation of all beings who are alive and allows all future living beings to be beneficially welcomed as well.

This is my process, you may have another. Whatever you choose keep in mind that Mother Earth needs us I believe - to look after all life on Earth now.

So lets do the best we can and if you happen to see a creature or have many reminders of certain plants around - pick those first to say your prayers and if you don't wish to see that creature or you don't wish to see that plant then you can say this Living Prayer as well, "I am asking that all those (then fill in the name for that creature or that plant or that type of person if you like) be insulated and protected from harm and that all those attempting to harm them also be insulated and protected and that each does not see each other nor hear of each other and that this lack of contact further insulate and protect and allow benevolence for all beings."

That's what I recommend. Goodlife to you all and goodnight.
