Normally, the spiritual experience belongs to the first. The journey itself, in the energy realms of symbols, colors, feelings and intensities touch upon the sensible features of energy containers. We cannot explain these states of consciousness, we can only describe them.
Initially, people depict dragons, flowers, forests, oceans, animals and faces. The innerdance touches upon meaning-filled symbols, as the mind watches, in awe of what these signs represent archetypically. Whilst this happens, the body moves as it does.
Eventually, descriptions shift into explanations. Dragons become symbolic representations of cultural or personal mythologies, relevant to the deeper meanings that systemically structure our beliefs.
The actual Dance takes place between the inexplicable and the explanations of it. We find ourselves becoming what we perceive, and when we talk about it, our many perceptions fold and unfold, the way language holds meanings within the infinite folders stored in a vast Time-Space Library called Collective Consciousness.
The States and Stages in the ProceSS
The many frameworks in the innerdance process describe in Death, explain through Birth. All the techniques, functions and intentions in the spiritual process grants this to those undergoing the States and Stages of Consciousness.
SURRENDERING to State - Humans find fresh beginnings. Exhausted from the burden of their story’s heavy expectations, the mind is stripped of the layers of illusions and judgment, of emotional conditioning. In the state of surrender, the Life Review takes place through description. When we read or listen, messages undergo decomposition. Through the act of witnessing our lives without resistance, transformation happens automatically, deconstructing stagnant formations to shift into new ones.
GROWTH into Stages - As persons surrender into empty states, an accelerated evolution takes place. Evolutions takes place when pieces of a large totality are dreamed into Being. Creation happens from Deconstructions, just as Births take place subsequent to Deaths.
When participants and facilitators find it difficult to speak after the innerdance process, it is because Of the decomposition at work within States of Consciousness. Prior to accelerated growth, multiple deaths occur in what is called the Life Review.
