About two months ago, the Entities have opened a new space for us to do current work (meditation): the overlook out in the garden of the Casa de Dom Inacio. Visitors who come to be treated at the Casa Dom Inacio and receive a spiritual intervention are not able to go back to the inside current to do the meditation and therefore, the space at the overlook was opened. Now people can go to current after their 24-hour rest.
It was a wonderful surprise and honour to me to receive the Entity's blessings to be the medium to hold the space for the participants. My role is to lead the current work by reading prayers and care for the participants in case they need something. Every day I learn something else. I had no idea I would be able to feel when participants open their eyes during the work but I experience it now. The deep (energetic) silence is interrupted as soon as one person opens their eyes and looks around. When everyone has their eyes closed, their focus is on the inside and they enter in a deep state of meditation and inner silence. As soon as the eyes are open, the energy's flow is cut and interrupted and the work of the good spirits is stopped for the one opening their eyes. Through reading the prayers during the work, the energy of the prayers read is magnified and showered over the meditators. When people enter the current and disrupt the harmony for a little, I read a prayer to balance the energy. Also when people are finding it difficult to keep their eyes closed or are restless, I read a prayer and guide them into meditation and silence. It is beautiful work and I am grateful to do it.
As explanation of the word current: The word used in Portuguese is 'corrente' which translates into English as 'current'. In Portuguese, it has two meanings: chain and current/stream. During the energy work, we sit with our eyes closed, legs and arms uncrossed on benches, one person next to the other and do our prayers. We are connected like the links of a chain and at the same time, the energy that is moved and manipulated by the spirit entities is running through us like a stream. Therefore, it is called 'current'. Personally, I do not like using the word meditation to describe the work in the current rooms because when defining meditation, we think more of focusing the mind on a particular object or thought to enter a state of calmness and tranquility. In the current rooms, much more is happening. The entities are present and are manipulating our energy field to do healing work on us. The good spirits are working on us, cleansing us, inspiring us through thoughts, visions and feelings. At the same time, our presence is used to work on the other people who are in line, passing in front of the meditators to go see the entity. Those who are sitting in current, are therefore receiving and giving at the same time. The length of the time that they sit in current, depends on how many people are passing in front of the entity and which entity is attending the visitors that day. Some entities work faster, some entities like to converse more. Current opens at 07:00 for the current in the inside rooms of the Casa, where the line passes to go in front of the entity. For the outside current at the overlook, people can arrive at 07:30. The work outside at the overlook is opened the same time as inside: 07:45. The length of the time is equal for inside and outside current rooms: until the last person has passed in front of the entity.
The overlook is situated in the Casa gardens, a beautiful space. The view is breathtaking and we have toucans visiting us at the starting time of the current. Black birds and canaries come during the work and sing for us.
When we started with the work out at the overlook, we had the cement mixer going (two at some point!) and lots of noise from the construction of the new Casa Book Shop. The Book Shop is almost finished now so the cement mixer is thankfully no longer needed.
Inside the current rooms as well as at the outside current room, we have various sources of noise that challenge us during our focus on our inside. Osho, the Indian guru, once said you need to be able to meditate on the market place. He meant that whatever noises are outside of us, around us, should not matter. Our focus has to remain on the inside. The more focus we have, the less outside noises are disturbing us. The more we get balanced inside, the less outside movement and noises are interrupting our work. On the contrary, a cement mixer can sound soothing! Whatever your background and experience in meditation, the spirit entities will help you to find silence inside and guide you into trance to be able to sit hours on end and receive this wonderful work.
