You carry the now around with you.Â I know that may seem like a strange way to understand your relationship with the mystical now.Â If you get really quiet, you might be able to feel the now breathing through the vertical energy of your spine.Â I like to call that your energetic spine.Â And I like to call the vertical axis that runs through your upright spine the Y-axis.Â Â And so the Y-axis meditation (which is how we align with the vertical) offers a direct route to awakening to the now within our awareness.[mc id="414" type="audio"]Untitled Media[/mc]
Meditation for Spiritual Awareness
If you come to the YOFA system of Inner Alignment seeking spiritual awareness and upliftment, the Y-axis meditation is all that is needed. Its orientation gives you access to the spiritual awakening that you seek.
Meditation for All Other Reasons
If you come to this system seeking healing, loving relationships, prosperity and all other forms of joyful manifestation, the Y-axis meditation is the starting point.Â It's always the starting point.Â And no other axis can replace it.Â At least not as long as you are living here on earth!
(You can find out the inner meaning of the 3 dimensions and the 3 axes and their relationship to the earth in Rooted in the Infinite.)
So you can see that your alignment with the vertical is a fundamental aspect of the YOFA system.Â As you work with the meditations in the book, I'd like you to give special attention to the Y-axis.Â Like the trunk of a tree, it is the basis from which everything else that we do in this system branches.
Sit upright.Â Feel the vertical "up force" as it lifts you from within. Allow all your muscles to relax so that you become a vertically balanced system.Â Energy within you moves up and your relaxed muscles cooperate with gravity.Â Feel the peace and stability that result from this awareness.Â This is a wonderful structure for the now to live in as you.
