I tried this today and was all smiles for hours. My mind ramped up and I had to stop at work to grab some scrap paper and pencil in order to write down the thoughts which were racing through. Utterly fascinating stuff. And then I was at peace for a very long time after that, though my work continued its usual physical and mental stresses.
So this is very much recommended. The phrasing for this could be changed to make it so a "regular Joe" could do it. I recommended it to a farm hand as a way of understanding how animals communicated (since only humankind and a few other species have both eyes on one side of their head).
But the data you can access is very deep. Try this while you are doing some mundane chores at the computer like cleaning your email of spam. If you have an instructional MP3 on in the background, you'll find that your retention of this data is much greater. Try this as you go to sleep and you'll find your dreams are more lucid and interesting - at least for me. And I didn't need as much sleep, waking more refreshed than usual.
The application of this is really worth the trial, since this apparently gets you immediately into contact with the Universal and you will have immediate feedback on your ideal scene or vision you are trying to create. Ask a question in this mode and be ready for a flood of answers coming back at you.
Let me know what you find...
Hawaiian Huna Practitioners Use Meditation to Connect with Spirit: "THE ACTIVE MEDITATION OF THE KAHUNA
One meaning of Hakalau is, 'To stare at as in meditation and to allow to spread out.' If you've never tried it before, right now, this technique can be a real eye opener. Try it.
1. Ho'ohaka: Just pick a spot on the wall to look at, preferably above eye level, so that your field of vision seems to bump up against your eyebrows, but the eyes are not so high so as to cut off the field of vision.
2. Kuu: 'To let go.' As you stare at this spot, just let your mind go loose, and focus all of your attention on the spot.
3. Lau: 'To spread out.' Notice that within a matter of moments, your vision begins to spread out, and you see more in the peripheral than you do in the central part of your vision.
4. Hakalau: Now, pay attention to the peripheral. In fact, pay more attention to the peripheral than to the central part of your vision.
5. Ho'okohi: Stay in this state for as long as you can. Notice how it feels. Notice the ecstatic feelings that begin to come to you as you continue the state."
