Going Under The Cloak

There are many processes that lead to spiritual work or just relaxation of the mind. This one is such a process, and I would like to share it with you, for it is very simple, but requires a lot of mind control. It is easier if you already know the basic steps of meditation.

As the title suggests, this is literally going under the cloak or a blanket, basically any piece of cloth that you can use to cover you whole. This process of relaxation can be done in short periods of time or long ones, depending on how further you want your mind to go, to delve into a different state of mind.
Do this exercise, get yourself a blanket, lie underneath it and you may or may not use an heavy object such as a rock, to help you in the process of freeing your mind. I’m speaking of rocks because the Druids used to do such things, placing a rock on the chest in order to depress the breathing to alter the state of mind. The heavy object can’t be too heavy, or it will end up hurting you, o you will be very uncomfortable, but nether can it be too soft, or you will end up sleeping.

Pay attention, this process must not be performed by people inexperienced, even those used to alter their state of mind with such processes, must be accompanied by a crew able to monitor the pulse and breathing of the person.

The objective of being under a cloak, is to experience a different type of being all by yourself, as if in a cocoon or the “return” to the womb. Peaceful and quiet. Even if you choose to be by yourself in a room, with windows closed, in total darkness, there is always light in the room, light always finds a way to get in, so if you do this process, but under a cloak, you will experience a new kind of darkness, after a while, you will not even realize where you are.

One response to “Going Under The Cloak

  1. Dear Arith, I wanted to say thank you for all that you share; your knowledge of European culture and traditions, I especially appreciate that you share your opinions, respectfully and honestly – and without apology for the view of the imbalances in the world as well; – and then back up what you’ve said with a intelligent debate of heart and philosophical process. I am a passionate person who (also) grew up in the views of extreme religion, fear and secrets and lies. I was the outcast in my family; me and my maternal grandmother. From the time that i was small – i would seek the near by swamp to spend my entire day in to escape the violence in my life and town i lived in. I still live in that same place – and only after separation from my mother; and the death of my father – last year – have the truth of the family stories come out which fills in and supports the things i always felt inside . Nordic and german jew on one side of the family; and Irish and Cree on the other side . . My parents spoke of the healers in the family- but also said they were crazy and bad. In these times, and i’m now 58 – it’s hard to find out about Nordic history without hitting those walls of re-born fear and suspicion – and then I stumbled upon your videos – I look forward to each and every one-i’ve been watching for a year now. all the best to you – Eriana Marcus
