Apologies if my last post was a bit harsh. I'm in the pacific northwest as well...for the moment. The last 8.1 earthquake has me a bit wiggy. On top of it, these lights I'm seeing have been really intense lately. I don't know if you read any of my other posts about neg attacks, but I'm in high season right now for that sort of stuff.noise said:A question for GreyCat. When you spin are you actuallly exerting force or is it more leasurely? The difference I'm refereing to is a more calm slow spin versus.. "I'm trying to spin!" First one to 33 anyone? :)
I guess I was mostly trying to empahsize that although it might be uncomfortable initially, if you continue through the experiment you might find some interesting results. Much along the lines of astronauts who need a certain ruggedness to undergo g-forces. When I spin...I try to keep my mind as calm and centered as possible. I spin fast with my arms out. There is a sensation of extending from above and below. It didn't take me long to adjust to the nausea afterwards. Although I have gone through periods where I stopped for a while, several months and the first few spinning sessions after that were rather uncomfortable.
The most interesting thing I find is that spinning actually gives you a physical location to go to in your head that aids meditation. If you keep the internal dialog down while spinning...you sort of find this center point. It's one of those things that is difficult to explain. I've dubbed it 'internal navigation' and with it you get a feeling of what the C's have called 'the center of within'.
I'm in favor of spinning counter-clockwise. My rationale is that the current system of time that we are so rigidly connected to was set up by STS forces. If you spin counter-clockwise, you are 'countering the clock', something a STO candidate would hope for no?
