Trauma, denial, distortion of reality and projection of ones flaws on others and outside world.

We live in a world full of all sorts of #abusive behavior some directed toward others and by lashing out at the outside world(society). Some people indulge in reckless behavior; others in bad eating habits or harmful #drug #addictions. Collectively groups of people will get #angry and irrational and often countries will be propelled by this #anger to lash out at other country militarily without first coolly evaluating how to rationally work out their differences. In a world like this trauma will occur an awful lot with the psychological problems that come with it. The cycle of #abuse will continue as the #trauma even when healed physically will often leave #psychological scars and the #denial that comes with not wanting to face the deep #emotions that come with them. This denial and the distortion of reality that comes with it leads to a continuation of abusive behavior in this world. We all are abusive to some degree,since no one is perfect! But, we have a very high level of abusive behavior on this spiritually backward planet that needs to be addressed in order for us to develop the spiritual maturity to deal with the intense problems that living in a very technological advance world presents to us!

    Our spiritual programming determines how well we are able to face reality at its most challenging! If we have spiritual beliefs that tune of out of or devalue part of the reality we exist in, we will weaken our ability to tune into and cope with this reality. Seeing reality from all sides and angles is not easy to do! People often like to see only the part of reality that they are comfortable with based on where they are at psychologically and the impact of past trauma on them. One can not heal and grow further spiritually if one does not face ones flaws and the spiritual theories one has that tend to be supportive of the view of reality ones currently accepts. When ever one spiritually distorts reality one will suffer self abuse and also will be abusive of others. One can feel really justified in being abusive as a result of the denial that becomes part of ones psychology and spiritual state of being.
     One can not advance further spiritually if one is not willing to see ones spiritual/psychological problems and the #spiritual theories that underpin them. If one is locked into some spiritual beliefs as a result of them being supportive of the state of denial that comes with not facing and healing the spiritual/emotional impact of past trauma, it can be quite difficult to advance to a healthier level spiritually! When someone tries to reach these people with the strong spiritual energy and spiritual theories required to help them to heal they will often lash out at that person no matter how rational their presentation is. Irrationality and the distortion of reality is often part of those who have suffered abuse or trauma and not healed psychologically from it. Arrogance and an inability to face ones spiritual shortcomings is what prevents people from being receptive to the type of spiritual help they need. One can not help someone spiritually until they feel that they could benefit from such help. Often it takes a really challenging situation in their life and the hard lessons that come with it to get people to really see their shortcomings and want to spiritually #heal and improve their understanding of reality in a way that will prevent future hard lessons of the same type from happening again!
     The truth is most often in the complicated middle and requires one is able to see things from many angles and sides. One can through really challenging spiritual #meditation type training gain a stronger spiritual grip on reality and enable one to better handle the pain/struggle that often comes with getting more of a grip on reality and the truth that comes with this. #Pain is part of life and must be faced in order to gain more spiritual maturity and connection with reality. Once one has obtained an ability to handle a heavier dose of reality, then one will develop the #intuition required to sense which people are reliable/serious sources and thus become better at determining what sources are unreliable or not solid enough or have a feel to them that do not gibe with your sense of how #reality actually works.
Here is a link to my blog on the meditative/spiritual type training I do:

Reliable/effective spiritual development

If we are going to advance further in the spiritual area on this planet we are going to have to do the work required to improve in this area. We will not just get “reliable” spiritual information/answers just given to us from some sort of “magical”source. Our inspiration will only be as good as we are able to receive based on our current spiritual development and will always need work by us to improve on it so it will adequately meet our needs. People who are psychic have to translate what they are picking up spiritually and will not do so perfectly making mistakes quite often. But, they should make enough hits that they will be helpful to people who will tend to remember the hits and not the misses. Some psychics will be more advanced spiritually than others and have more accuracy than others. Channelers are just psychics that work from a trance state and will also be limited by their own spiritual development as to how good the information they tune into and translate really is.

We all have to evaluate any spiritual information we obtain from any source including our own inspiration and figure out what is of value to us, and what needs to be further refined by us, or needs to be discarded as not being accurate enough or of much use to us. We all have to be careful what we accept as true spiritually, since what we accept spiritually affects us directly in how well we perform spiritually in the real world. We do well to be open minded to information that serve us really well in this challenging physical reality we exist in, and closed minded to information that is not adequate to meet our needs here. Having high standards as to what we accept spiritually is a good thing. Nothing is perfect spiritually, so spiritual growth is an endless process with new puzzles always be presented for us to figure out to some degree. One stops growing spiritually when one stops searching for better spiritual answers. We need to be constantly working to improve our understanding of the spiritual no matter how advanced we believe we are. We need to be an example for others as to the value of being always open to improving further spiritually.

Effective spiritual/meditative training techniques can make a big difference in helping us develop the physical spiritual health required to handle the really intense spiritual/emotional states required in order to handle a lot more of what is true spiritually. One has to be able to handle more of the truth and the intense spiritual/emotional energy that comes with it. Emotions power the spiritual, and as one grows spiritually one becomes more passionate about making a positive difference on this planet by spreading positive spiritual energy and information to others who are able to see the value in it.

Strong, but positive emotions are often thought of as negative by those who are not receptive to the amount of truth that comes with it. People who are really advanced spiritually are able to handle emotions no mater how powerfully they are expressed. People often will listen to music that is so loud that it hurts their ears because they like it. But, will often complain about someone being too loud when they passionately represent something of spiritual value that they do not want to hear. It is not like their ears are actually being hurt. The people who are really open to new spiritual information will not be hurt by someone who speaks with the intensity and passion that a spiritual message requires in order to be delivered with the required deep impact on them. It is when one actively fight to not hear something spiritually that it will hurt your ears and make one uncomfortable. People who are really advanced spiritually need to find those who are receptive to their passion and avoid those in which the passion hurts their ears and respond in a way that is hostile and insensitive to the value of what they have to offer and the way they passionately and intensely deliver it verbally.

Why have I had so much time in my life to focus extremely hard creatively on the spiritual?

I tried hard to find a way to fit into the job market, but was unable to due to my visual memory and finer motor skills limitations. I did manage to survive due to family help, but felt I had to be extremely frugal and purposeful, and work harder in the area(the spiritual) that I have a lot of ability in. I always saw(I believe for very real reasons) my life as one continuous crisis and still do. I felt like I had to work harder than anyone else, so that I would have the spiritual strength to do things others would not be capable of doing. I wanted to be in a position that I had the strength of spiritual character(and intense enough connection with reality) to over power the energy of those who would question how much effort I put in to being successful in life.

I have had to push myself extremely hard all of my life, since I felt I had no other choice in order to survive in a world that is extremely rough on very unique “differently abled” individuals like me. What a lot of people find not very difficult to do in this modern world, I find really difficult. But, I found that I could handle better what other found really hard to deal with in the spiritual/emotional area, and saw this as a very useful advantage I had. So, I decided to apply as hard a level of difficulty to developing myself and my spiritual theories and techniques as I could possibly do.

The type of spiritual training I developed and do is more advanced and difficult than anything available out there is this world right now. Why do I believe this is true? Because I put an extreme amount of effort in developing and testing these training techniques(especially in the past 3 decades of my life) along with developing spiritual theories using the development of a new astrology system based on them to force me to develop them further. My astrology system was needed to tune me in spiritually so that I would have the self awareness and spiritual awareness to handle the most extreme and difficult of spiritual/emotional states in a way that could enable to direct even the roughest spiritual/emotional energy in a positive/constructive direction toward bringing more positive spiritual/physical results to a world that has so many serious problems rooted in the spiritual that need people motivated by really strong spiritual purpose to tackle and find adequate remedies for.

Here is my very useful blog post on meditative walking which is an extremely effective spiritual training technique: https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/……

Passion powers the spiritual and needs to be effectively directed

Where your passion is directed tell a lot about where you are at spiritually. Emotions/passion powers the spiritual. People often are not that willing to blame the predominating and inadequate spiritual beliefs/theories of the times for the messed up state this world is in. They often would rather put their valuable spiritual passion into polarizing politics or wild conspiracy theories. There are many ways to avoid dealing directly with the spiritual roots of the problem in a world in which delusional spiritual energy and beliefs/theories dominates. Of course a lot of passion can be eaten up or dulled by indulging in various excesses in creature comforts and desires or going into some insulating escapist spiritual state.. Obtaining more of the truth can be extremely hard to handle especially by those who are weak due to overindulging themselves.

My really stoic spiritual training approach helps me to be able to get a stronger grip on what is true spiritually. It takes really hard work to transform the state this world is in with all of its serious problems and it all starts on the extremely important spiritual level which underlies and thus greatly impacts all of the reality we exist in. It is about time we develop the spiritual/emotional maturity to direct our passions and desires in a way that counts. We can only do this if we have really good spiritual theories programmed inside us and do the type of spiritual training that enables us to effectively utilize this programming.

I have many blog posts on this site dealing with what I have come up with spiritually as a result of a lifetime with an extremely serious focus in this area. People often dismiss those who are willing to go up against the spiritual status quo on a planet that tends to be attracted to autocratic type spiritual beliefs that are not open to being really seriously questioned and tested as to their effectiveness in transforming the spiritual state this world is in. The spiritual underlies all of the reality we exist in, and any changes we make to this underlying spiritual level in ourselves or in the collective consciousness of this planet will directly impact what is happening on the physical level. We can not tackle the serious problems that exist on this planet unless we develop the spiritual strength(will) and awareness required to do it.  Here s my very valuable blog post on meditative walking:    https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2016/10/04/meditative-walking-developing-a-stronger-spiritual-connection-with-the-physical/

The importance of being grounded in this “insane” world

So many spiritual beliefs(theories)that dominate on this planet tend to tune people out quite a bit spiritually from the very challenging physical reality all that are reading this are a vital part of.  We are incarnated in a physical reality that can really test how well our spiritual beliefs/theories really work.  So many spiritual beliefs/theories tend to sort of slander this physical reality or discredit its value and prefer fantasy type beliefs that envision a better type reality that is easier to handle as an afterlife/existence.  People often have spiritual beliefs or theories that distract or remove their focus away from the important challenges that this world offers us as a means to help us grow further spiritually and give us a serious purpose to help us get the most out of what positive value we can develop and contribute to making this world a better place to exist in.

Delusional spiritual beliefs  can be intoxicating like an addictive drug that puts one into a “feel good” state that has not been earned by doing the hard work in order to make one really healthy spiritually and physically and capable of contributing something of real value to a world full of so many serious problems that are not being properly addressed.  Permissiveness, over indulgence, and the desire for  instant gratification tends to weaken people spiritually and make them less responsible and disciplined and unable to carry a reasonable amount of the burden of transforming this world into a place we can really  be proud to be part of.  So many people desire to escape from this world spiritually rather than directly face their responsibilities to do their part to address the really messed up conditions that exist here that are rooted in the spiritual.

We can not adequately address the serious problems that exist on this planet if we can not handle the emotions and pain connected with them.  The truth is often quite painful, but the pain is worth the price of gaining the spiritual strength that enables one to handle more of the truth and thus enable one to be able to be a lot more constructive at finding and implementing solutions to serious problems existing here on this Earth.  The stronger and more aware one is spiritually the more one can handle the painful/challenging side of life.  Pain can really test how grounded one is spiritually.  The spiritual is powered by emotions, and the people who are the most effective are the ones who can not only handle really intense and difficult emotions, but channel these emotions to make really positive things happen in this world.  When one can really feel the emotions related to a extremely difficult situation or serious problem, one can do a lot spiritually to transform the situation.  Meditating on difficult emotions enables one to not only transform these emotions in a positive way, but impact the source of these emotions in a positive way.  Prayer/meditation can be used to help people in trouble provided one has a good spiritual connection with them and what their challenges are.  But, one can only help people who desire that help and are open to improving on the inadequate spiritual beliefs/theories that contributed to their problems.

One can train oneself to become able to handle really intense spiritual-spiritual states.  Challenging spiritual/emotional states always have an impact on oneself physically due to the stress involved.  Intense physical exercise when combined with intense meditative breathing techniques can condition oneself spiritually and physically to be able to handle extremely difficult(torturous)spiritual states.  People who exercise hard often refer to their exercise sessions as torture.  I have blog posts on the dumbbell swing exercise I do for 6 nonstop minutes that I developed in order to help me handle the most intense and difficult emotional/spiritual states possible without adversely affecting my health!  When one becomes really strong and grounded spiritually it becomes a lot easier to resist harmful temptations and to do what is healthy in ones life when it comes to diet and exercise.  One can develop the ability/intuition to find the diet and nutritional supplements that help you to handle pushing yourself extremely hard physically and spiritually.   One can develop the spiritual theories and mindset that can help one to handle extreme spiritual and physical states and still be able to sense intuitively what one can safely get away with.  One has to be able to become very vigilant(aware) and careful when one is pushing the edge an awful lot spiritually and physically.

Also required in order to handle this challenging physical world we are such a vital part of is the ability to function spiritually in a very low energy state.  In a low energy state the spirit becomes a lot more sensitive and aware spiritually.  In order to have a great deal of spiritual control over oneself, one needs to be able to adjust ones energy to the requirements of the situation you find yourself in.  Also when you push yourself very hard doing things that require a lot of energy one needs to be able to rest and recover which is best done spiritually in a love energy state.  Healing from an illness often requires that one not eat much and lower ones blood sugar quite a bit. In times of crisis one often needs to go from high energy state to low energy state quickly based on the situation.  Sometimes it is best to sort of disappear from the scene and let others take over while you recover and evaluate what you need to do next while in a very aware/sensitive low energy spiritual state .  I use slow intense meditative walking with short quick steps, shoulder movement and rapid breathing to enhance my ability to function in a low energy state spiritually.  I find meditative walking help my stationary type meditation work so much better.  I have blog posts on this site dealing with all forms of meditation.  Here is a link to one of them:   https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2016/10/04/meditative-walking-developing-a-stronger-spiritual-connection-with-the-physical/

I have developed spiritual theories and techniques through a really intense spiritual focus over a lifetime especially over the last 30 years.  I am almost 65 years old, so it has taken me a lot of time to get where I am at now.  My spiritual theories and techniques have helped me develop an astrology system that has a great deal of spiritual understanding represented in its formulation!

Humor is no replacement for effective meditative techniques in helping one to better cope spiritually/emotionally

I should point out at the beginning of this post that I developed my own very intense meditative techniques to help me spiritually handle life at its roughest. So, I am very familiar with this subject personally.  I depend on my type of meditative walking and a meditative type 2 handed 20lb modified (barbarian)dumbbell swing to help me handle what life deals my way.  I have not taken any pain killers of any kind in over 30 years.

There are various forms of escapism(including humor) available to distract one from the tension and challenges of life and the pain that often comes with them.  But these forms of escapism may have some health benefits over the short term provided they are not in the form of some destructive type of addiction.    People often use humor as a means to help them cope emotionally/spiritually from the pain and stress this world provides plenty of.  Humor can tend to lighten ones mood, and give one temporary relief.  But, humor or any form of escapism will not work when one is facing really intense pain.  The more pain one feels the more sober one needs to be in order to cope with it spiritually.  A lot of people have never felt the most intense forms of pain or dealt with the harshest conditions this world has to offer.  A lot of people actively tune out spiritually from the really harsh/painful conditions that exist in this world and the problems that come with them.  We live in a world in which painkilling medications are used frequently and that a lot of people are addicted to them.

The difference between methods that use escapism to avoid pain and using effective meditative techniques, is that effective meditative techniques increase ones ability to cope with even more pain by increasing ones spiritual/emotional strength and awareness.  Also as one tunes in better to the pain one is feeling one becomes better at reading ones body and at figuring out what diet and exercise program will best work for you.  Facing the pain and conditioning oneself to handle it better helps one tune into reality better and the serious often extremely painful problems that exist in this world.  We can not effectively deal with the serious problems that exist in this world without being able to cope with the pain that is associated with them.  A lot of the problems in this world are the result of people not being able to direct their emotions and desires in a positive direction.  Sexual and other forms of abuse happen way too much in this world.  Violence is also very prevalent in this world on both the personal and collective level.   Humor and other forms of escapism do not help us to get better at handle these painful situations that exist in this world, but effective meditative techniques can.  Often people who depend of escapism of different forms to help them cope with emotional pain within themselves will face circumstances where this form of escapism does not work as in a crisis requiring immediate response.  In times of crisis ones spiritual/emotional weakness tend to be exposed and can result in destructive behavior or health problems due to the stress involved.   Effective meditative techniques help one to gain the spiritual/physical strength and awareness required to handle really intense emotions well along with the stress and pain that so often are part of life.

My focus is very much into transforming this world into a much better  place to exist in.  For this to happen individuals have to first work on transforming themselves.  Advanced spiritual theories and meditative techniques geared toward helping people to better cope spiritually with the often painful reality we exist in are required if we are to more effectively handle the serious problems that exist in this world.  Science does not have all the answers, since the spiritual plays a really important role in the challenging physical reality we exist in.  I have blog posts that explain the type of meditative techniques I use which can be found by clicking on”meditation” below this post.  Here is a link to my very effective meditative walking blog post:   https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2016/10/04/meditative-walking-developing-a-stronger-spiritual-connection-with-the-physical/

PAIN

Here I focus on the positive side of pain. Pain exists for a reason and handling it well can be used to help one grow stronger both physically and spiritually. Physical pain can help one read ones body, so one can better push ones limits in a demanding physical exercise program, and learning to handle(cope with)emotional/spiritual pain can help one to become better at handling in a positive way the whole spectrum of emotions with all their intensity that are part of life.
The more pain one can handle the more truth one can handle. It is painful to have ones delusions/fantasies shattered! It is painful to face a stronger dose of reality. Life’s lessons are often painful. Pain can tend to wake people up spiritually. Growing stronger spiritually requires one learn to handle the painful emotions of life really well. I train in a way that puts me in very difficult and uncomfortable spiritual/emotional states for a reason. It is hard to bring more spiritual truth to a world that tends to be addicted to autocratic type spiritual beliefs and not that open to more rational/practical spiritual beliefs that are designed to connect one more strongly to this reality we exist in here, and enable us to make a positive difference spiritually here as a result. Our world is really messed up spiritually because the predominating spiritual beliefs that exist here are inadequate!

Meditation is important to keeping positive emotionally

Meditation requires one focus on on ones breathing, and feelings. One tries to slow down the body so that it will move to a more stable spiritual state more comfortable and grounded in reality. One becomes more connected and one with the physical world one exists in. One needs to calm all the crazy energy that one absorbs from the world around you and become more one with that which is solid and reliable in this reality we exist in. This reality is challenging and will overpower us at times. We can not allow that to happen. We need to fight to remain calm and strong. Connecting more with the hard/solid part of our reality helps us do that. But to do this we need to slow down and connect with this solid stillness. It is not easy to do this
I focus on my breathing and do certain body movements that relieve the tension that prevents one from relaxing and connecting more strongly with the solid reality that provides us with spiritual strength. It takes a lot of work to meditate, just like it does for a physical exercise program. I combine meditation with the physical exercises I do, and get in a very low energy state as a result afterwards that really connects me with reality in a really solid way. Strong people develop the ability to perform in the low energy states that others can not handle! It is all in conditioning oneself to handle a lot and to be able to handle low energy states really well.
Emotional strength is developed when one can handle the challenging emotions that one must face and get use to when one is in a lower energy state than one is comfortable with. One trains oneself through meditative techniques to get use to lower energy states and the challenging emotions and the reality that comes with them. I confront challenging emotions while meditating and overcome their power over me, so I can use them to my benefit!!
1/25/16: Now doing my intense meditative walk in a way I tire out sooner and move from doing one breathing in and out with each step to one breathing in with 2 steps and out with 2 steps when the first one fatigues me. I move my shoulders up and down in a way to massage my neck so as to get more blood flow to the brain when I do both of these. I raise my head a little to make massaging my neck with my shoulders easier to do.
I have other more detailed blog posts I have done in the past that can be reached by clicking on meditation  under this blog post.  Here is a link to my very valuable meditative walking blog post:   https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2016/10/04/meditative-walking-developing-a-stronger-spiritual-connection-with-the-physical/

We need more spiritual expertise on this planet, and need the media to be more of a factor in helping this happen!!!

I am in #Houston trying to get my very unique and valuable spiritual beliefs and techniques to the public. I have always been unfairly discriminated against for being “differently or uniquely abled” in this world. The media tends to be locked into a certain mind-set that screens out people like me and deems me as not worthy of accessing the real freedom of speech that only being on the public airways can provide. The media is controlled by certain interests(often interested in maintaining the “status quo” that help finance them). The religious/spiritual status quo is also hard to go up against with authoritarian religions that think they are connected perfectly with perfect divine/spiritual sources also are interested in not allowing an innovative/creative spiritual type person like me get in a position to “rock the boat”.

 

I have spiritual beliefs that are geared to help those with the most challenging of spiritual/psychological/emotional problems and to help deal with the serious problems in this world that are so emotional/spiritually charged! The spiritual is powered by the emotions and a person with true spiritual expertise is able to handle the whole spectrum of emotions in a positive way. People sometimes glorify certain emotions and give them and overly positive spin, while demonizing others. But, all emotions exist for a purpose and can be of great value when directed in a constructive positive way.

 

My beliefs are designed to help people handle the roughest physical/spiritual states a person can face in this very challenging physical reality we exist in. They are not beliefs that devalue the importance of this physical reality we exist in and the challenges it poses to us spiritually. A spirit can not be strong or function really well without being in a challenging environment. Tough spiritual training techniques(like the ones I have developed and train myself with)help one to become able to handle extremely tough physical/spiritual states, so that one will be able to better perform spiritually in the field(real life). Good training is suppose to prepare one to have the professional skills to be able to better contribute in ones field of expertise to others who can benefit from it, and to making the world a better place by so doing.

 

Science does not have all the answers, and often intrudes to much in areas that are spiritual in nature and not that easily dealt with with their scientific methods/techniques. The field of psychology is dominated by the spiritual, and the field of medicine is greatly affected by the spiritual. We need really badly to advance further in the spiritual area, so that we can keep science from dominating areas that should be the territory of those who have really advanced spiritual training. We need to advanced spiritually to the point that we all become “spiritually independent” and able to search for the best spiritual beliefs and techniques and not be controlled by authoritarian spiritual ideology dominated by “bigger than life” historical/mythological figures/individuals from the past. Being divided by differing spiritual ideologies/mythologies, has harmed our spiritual advancement on this planet, science does not have all these differing ideologies to deal with and is able to be a united field searching for the truth about our physical universe. The spiritual need to advance so it can take a similar approach as science while using effective spiritual methods to discover what works the best to effectively improve the spiritual conditions that exist on this planet and solve the serious problems that exist here to quite a degree that have their roots in the spiritual. So many problems could be better address in this world if people developed further spiritually so that their emotions and desires could better be harnessed to bring positive constructive results rather than tending to sabotage our attempted to improve the state this world is in.

The type of dumbbell swings I do, how they train the body, and their physical-spiritual purpose

This note was in response to questions a person posed to me on a spiritual site.

This exercise does not create large muscles which is why I weigh only 135 lbs at 5′ 10″ tall.  It is mainly a cardiovascular exercise helping my heart and circulation to be really in top form.  When I take the dumbbell behind my head/neck, and then lift it back over, I do use my triceps.  I started doing this when I had been doing a pushup challenge, and decided it was better just to extend my dumbbell swing to behind my head instead.  It is complicated, but this change in my dumbbell swings made them even better at putting me in extremely intense and difficult physical/spiritual states which is why I do them.

The type of modified dumbbell swing exercise that I do is mainly an endurance exercise.  It does keep a lot of muscles well toned!  It does use the neck muscles above the shoulders a lot, which I believe is very valuable since these muscles are so close to the brain.  I use these neck muscles as a focal point when doing my meditative runs and walks, and even use them a lot with my stretching exercises. I do believe the development of the spiritual parts of the brain related to emotion and sleep are essential to one spiritual strength and awareness.  I do tend to focus on these parts of my brain when meditating and exercising.  My lower back has hurt at times, but I just have to regularly stretch my back(especially when doing my meditative walks) in order to prevent muscle tightness there which I believe causes the problem.

A lot of people my age and even younger tend to have a lot of aches and pains.  I am doing very well keeping myself extremely healthy physically and spiritually and avoiding any injuries that could harm my progress in this area.  I am good at this because I have had an extreme spiritual focus on health and fitness my whole life and have become really tuned into my body and can read it really well as a result.  I will not go into the reasons for my extreme motivations in this area and why I feel I do things that others would be unwilling or unable to do because they would see no reason to do it based on their beliefs, and the fact that they can survive well enough to meet their spiritual/physical needs without having to deal with the extreme emotional/spiritual duress involves in developing and performing such exercises!

1/25/17 I deepened the squat to these modified(bent elbows and behind head) 2 handed dumbbell swings so that they would take a little longer so that I could breath in and 15 times during the whole 6 minutes.  I need a huge amount of spiritual intensity to reach a world that is so backward spiritually and so stuck in its ways!

  • 5/19/17  Now doing the squat a lot deeper bringing the 20 lb dumbbell close to my knees with my head also brought down at the lower part of the swing to be very close to the dumbbell also with my elbows very bent while at this lowest position.  My head does follow the dumbbell up as it rises and then is lifted over the head and behind it.  I may seem like quite a convoluted form of dumbbell swing, but it works well to put me into the most intense of spiritual states possible!  I now do 17 in ad out breaths per dumbbell swing.  Extremely hard exercise to do which I can only do as a result of all my previous exercise training, my spiritual theories(astrology system) that help me tune my body in really well  spiritually, my other meditative training techniques, and my diet!
