ZEN TEMPLE WALK – MUSE MONITOR EXPERIENCE OF SUBTLE ENERGIES
This is my experience of the 1400-year-old Zen temple just 5 minutes walk from our house in Japan. My 4-year-old daughter has played there since a baby so it is like another home for us.
My brain shows it too (graph as pictured). 6:30-6:32 is increased gamma-beta (elevated energy with focus) as I enter the temple and reach out for my favorite Ginkgo tree, planted at the same time as the temple was founded. The temple’s name is Kechienji which in Japanese means ‘unity’ or the ‘connector for all connections’ to translate it literally. 6:32-6:33 just a few meters from the tree are shrines to Amaterasu, Japanese sun goddess and Benzaiten/Saraswati, Japanese goddess of wisdom and music, and when I am there I strongly visualize myself as them, hence the rise in Theta and Delta (deep intuition/imagery eyes closed) as I concentrate very deeply and have done so for years. Next is an emptying from 6:33-6:34 as I walk into the sacred temple (pictured in the daytime) housing the Buddha Amitabha (Buddha of Light) and Kannon-sama (Guan Yin, Goddess of Compassion) and Fudoo-myo (Wisdom Protector) and sit around 6:35 on a seat I have sat for years and uplift my energies to the night sky and the stars, hence the higher gamma-beta lift.
I remember in these moments what it was like as a five-year-old when I went with my parents into the countryside to see the stars and feel the fresh open air. I have never lost that fresh childlike feeling for living here on this planet and am forever grateful for this precious human lifetime and the opportunity to practice living in the light, love, and presence of the divine within us all.
I would love to hear about some of your special places and the shifts they enhance in your consciousness (and if possible get some recordings of your brain patterns like this if you have access to a Muse or similar) in your many ‘homes’ on this planet.
