LESSON SUMMARY

Lesson 3: Doorways to Awakening

At Luminous we teach several different doorways to awakening so that you can get to know which ones are natural and easy and which ones create restriction and resistance that we can open into with whole new ranges of our awakening.  In this lesson we’ll focus on the doorways of water as we explore awakening through union, surrender, devotion, movement, flow, and the relational (self to other) door.

In this video you will explore various doorways to awakening.  We’ll encourage you to explore each doorway and notice if there is any resistance to surrender through that particular doorway as  you may find that that exploration can open a whole new range of awakening for you.

Video 2 - The Devotional Doorway, Laying Oneself Down

In this video we’ll explore laying down our burdens, our struggle, and our resistance.   There is a devotional doorway to awakening where we put our lives down at the feet of God.  It can feel like bathing in divine light illuminated in brightness.  Through this doorway we can go beyond our mistrust, smallness, judgements, and our need for control.  When we enter through the devotional doorway we can let every step be guided by this divine source.  There we will find a divine strength, a divine wisdom, a divine power that gives us everything we need.

LESSON CONTENT

Exploring Your Doorways to Awakening

There are many many doorways to awakening. Some of them are feminine, surrendered, devotional, relational, and dynamic. Some of them are more masculine, grounded, aligned, solitary, and still.  Some doorways are internal and some of them are external and yet All are true.

One of the images we have is the seven facets of a diamond because none of the wisdoms are complete by themselves.

 

"The reason that certain doorways are hard is often because this is where our most defended patterns are and you are hitting the part’s of you that have their biggest fears and negative projections on reality.”

 

Masculine & Feminine Doorways

One of our intentions in this work is to have a unification of masculine and feminine principles.  Each wisdom quality that we explore throughout this program often expresses back and forth as one or the other of these energies qualities.   As we integrate them all we become more balanced, more whole, and more complete expressing all of the many facets of God through all it’s unique doorways..

Notice that there are many doorways to God.  Water is feminine. Tree will be a masculine.   A lot of meditation is taught through the masculine, so a lot of meditation is stillness and on your own by yourself.  The doorways of water are more feminine, connective, relational, devotional and surrendered.   

Someone who has the shadow of water would be afraid to be alone and wouldn't want to do something where they have to be in their own mind.  That might feel too lonely if you have the shadow of water.

 

The Doorway of Vulnerability

Sometimes if we’ve hardened ourselves, that hardening is why we can’t open and we feel mistrust or feel alone.  One of our doorways is to allow ourselves to feel into our vulnerability..  Sometimes we have to cry first and in that place of softening, we can surrender our tears into the universal waters.  

There is a need to cry for all the separateness that we've been living 

The tears are the softening, the tears rain down and soften the earth, so that the earth is now soft and receptive instead of hard and compact.  As soon as we turn towards, our tears are often replaced by bliss and we begin to feel filled.   As you allow the vulnerability and the crying, you open yourself, and then you become filled.

The Doorway of Energy & Flow

In this lesson we talk about the water doorways of movement and the ever changing aspect of our true nature because the feminine has more connection to that energy.  We often experience the masculine doorway as the awareness and the stillness. Notice reality is made of both awareness and energy. Both masculine and feminine energy.

In this module we’ll be looking at the more feminine doorways of water.

 

The Doorway of Devotion

There is a devotional doorway to awakening where we can see ourselves putting our lives down at the feet of God.  It can feel like bathing in the divine light and can feel like we are all illuminated in all this brightness.

This door can be a hard doorway for some as we tighten into our self reliance and control.  There's a wisdom and there's a beauty because when we surrender to God or we're in this doorway of devotion, we might get caught in the duality and not realize that we and God are one.   The reason that certain doorways are hard is often because that's where our most defended pattern is and you are hitting the part’s of you that have their biggest fears there

 

The Internal & External Doorways

For people whose doorway is external. They're holding the most tension in the inside of their body. So they can't go in that way. The people whose doorway is internal, they have walls to the outside world, and that's why the doorways are just where you are undefended from that source.  That's actually what a doorway is. 

The reason, one is easier than another is it's the one that relates to your natural gift or your natural wisdom.  

 

 

The Devotional Water Doorways - Laying Oneself Down

As we explore the devotional doorway and lay down our burdens, our struggle, and our resistance. Through this doorway we can go beyond our mistrust and the smallness of all our judgements, and all our angers,  and our need for control.  

There we will find a divine strength, a divine power, a divine wisdom that gives us everything we need.  When we enter through the devotional doorway we can let every step be guided by this divine source.   Letting our hands be the hands of this divine source. Letting our voices be the voice of this divine source and whenever we turn away in fear, mistrust, or egocentrism, we can turn ourselves back. 

“If we could find the capacity to go beyond the mistrust.  Can you let go even more in your body? Can you lay the small self down, to realize that you don't need to do this alone, that you are connected.   This love does not punish. This love does not judge. There is nothing to hide from. There is nothing wrong with you. There's only your ignorance or your lack of trust that is keeping you from everything you need.”
