Lesson 20: The Toroidal Field of the Heart
The torus is a three dimensional figure created by rotating a circle 360 degrees along a line formed by another circle. This is also known as a donut or bagel shape. The hole is one ‘inside’ and the interior of the donut (like the inside of a tire tube) is another ‘inside’. These are solid, static structures that we also know as life savers or floatation rings.
We can also imagine a toroidal shaped electromagnetic field generating a torus like this heart-centered one from
Asianhealthsecrets.com. They go on to say: “The Hearts’ torus electromagnetic field is not the only source that emits this type of electromagnetic field. Every atom emits the same torus field. The Earth is also at the center of a torus, so is the solar system and even our galaxy…and all are holographic. Scientists believe there is a good possibility that there is only one universal torus encompassing an infinite number of interacting, holographic tori within its spectrum.” We will come back to the heart soon, but here are some interesting macrophase and microphase expressions of the toroidal fields of the cosmos.
” Io’s volcanoes continually expel an enormous amount of particles into space, and these are swept up by Jupiter’s magnetic field at a rate of 1,000 kg/sec. This material becomes ionized in the magnetic field and forms a doughnut-shaped track around Io’s orbit called the “Io Plasma Torus.” (planetaryexploration.net)
Here is one with a vesica pisces! Very cool! The original, by artist and planetary healer Pamela Leigh Richards is quite dynamic. (http://flywithmeproductions.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/torus1.gif.
Another cosmic one appears in the current edition of National Geographic (July 2013) in an article on the origins of the solar system. This side oriented torus represents the Oort Cloud’ a collection of trillions of comets and mini planets toroidally spinning around the solar system, seen here in red.
This reminded me of Itzak Bentov’s torus describing his model of the whole cosmos This can be found in both “Stalking the Wild Pendulum” and “A Cosmic Book, for those who want to look a bit more deeply into this.
And, for the piece de resistance, I offer the first cell division, where a single cell becomes two cells. Use your imagination to feel the dynamic energy flow between the two cells as they divide. Use any two chakras to fill in for the cells
Notice the energy flow and the opening of the toroidal field as the poles (centrioles) separate. Find the balance of stability (sthira) and flow (sukham) as the torus links your cells and chakras to the cosmos and vice versa.
Then explore the energetic shift from one cell to two and then the reverse, from two to one. Develop some flexibility in both directions. Find the torus and the vesica pisces. We will build upon this in upcoming embryology sections.
And most importantly, Smile. Enjoy the show. And, to quote the poet Mary Oliver, ‘Pay attention!, Be astounded! Tell about it!
Now we will begin to explore variations on a meditation centered on the toroidal field of energy emanating from and pouring into the human heart, and the ever present stillness that underlies all movement.
This will help begin the awakening of the light body, which we will then integrate with the sound (energy) body in the form of vibration, and the physical or structural body in the form of flesh, bones, water, organs and cells, so the three bodies can function as a whole, in stillness. Stabilizing the light body energy is the next and crucial step in the process of transforming human consciousness.
Step 1: Find a comfortable position for the meditation. Any sitting posture will do. Feel tall, wide and soft. Relax and drop everything into the breath. Release the breath and let it flow as effortlessly as possible.
Step 2: Bring your attention to your heart. The physical heart will do, although you can also use the heart chakra or the space just behind the physical heart to rest your awareness. Getting in the ballpark is good enough. Feel the energy here. It may be warm, vibrant, expansive, fluid. If the heart feels dark, heavy or unconsciousness, imagine a place in nature, or an experience in your life when your heart felt naturally soft and open. Nurture this feeling. Invite gratitude and loving kindness to arise. Feel that the heart is your center, your true home.
3. Now invite your heart energy to feel that is sits at the center of a torus with openings up to the heavens and down into the earth. Imagine your heart energy in the form of love, travels down through the bottom opening, through your root chakra, (the muladhara,) into the earth, dropping and spreading as it unites with all the layers and levels of Mother Earth. Allow your love to embrace all. Feel rooted, grounded and stable. find the stillness of Mother Earth and rest here.
4. Now allow the energies of Mother Earth, in the form of love and nurturing, to rise up into the center of the torus, through your root chakra, to the heart. feel the heart as a lens focusing the earths energies and send these throughout the body circulating around the toroidal field.
5. Now allow your heart to open to Father Sky, the heavens, sending love and well-being up to the moon, sun, stars, galaxies and onward, embracing the whole cosmos. Feel open, spacious and light. Find the heavenly stillness and rest there. Then receive the return of love from the heavenly realms pouring into your heart. Feel your heart full of love and send this on to your organs, cells, fluids and structures. Return to your heart and rest in the stillness there. Feel light, grounded, stable, centered, ready for the day.[/two_third]
