During meditation, adjustments of states of consciousness can be observed and experienced. With physical relaxation and internalization of attention, as mental transformations become refined, so our states of consciousness become refined. We can notice this by observing changes as they occur. Once we know what subtle and refined levels of consciousness feel like, and what our awareness is at these levels, we can choose to shift awareness to preferred levels at will without having to use physical or mental actions to facilitate change.
When meditation practice removes our awareness from physical and mental involvements, and we remain alert, superconsciousness can emerge. Preliminary superconsciousness may be experienced while emotions and thought processes are somewhat influential. When emotions and thought processes are stilled, superconscious states can unfold. Preliminary, thought-free superconsciousness may result in tranquil states which are enjoyable. As soul potential unfolds spontaneously, or because of intentional contemplation of transcendental realities, superconsciousness can result in episodes of expanded awareness or cosmic consciousness attended by apprehension of realities impossible to perceive or experience through the senses. Self-knowledge or Self-realization occurs. Then God-knowledge unfolds. From here, further unfoldments are due to the actions of grace.
Speak this positive affirmation:
Removing awareness from physical and mental involvements, I remain alert, allowing superconsciousness to emerge.
Have a good day . . . and a great life!
