Seek Vibrational Energy — the strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity.  Synonyms: vitality, vigor, life, liveliness, animation, vivacity, spiritedness, verve, enthusiasm, zest, vibrancy, spark, sparkle, effervescence, ebullience, exuberance, buoyancy, sprightliness.

 Practice Curiosity — the urge to know more about something. The state of being curious includes inquisitive interest in others’ concerns, wondering, ready to poke around and figure something out. In mathematics, a square is the result of multiplying a number by itself, e.g., two times two. In Curiosity, among individuals or groups, squaring is the acceleration of the experience of mutual wonder such that “I” becomes “Us.” Accelerating Curiosity is an energetic phenomenon. Its nature is neither linear nor conceptual.

A woman who counseled me was Zoe Morai, a genius who worked at Harvard in science research. Zoe had a near-death experience and after that, started trusting only her ‘present’ experience. What she was experiencing in the present moment is all that she would trust. She became the most amazing counselor and scientist in the area of personal growth, energy expansion, and making betterment happen. Zoe described herself as a scientist who brings vibrational magic and said that “Vibration is a consciousness that goes to our core.  You and I have it. It goes to your core and to my core. I feel it.  It’s a higher order, based in a vibrational spirit, which completes our old experience of being separate, of being different, and moves beyond that resistance and control, to vibrational flow.”

Put Experience Before Intention

The more experience and knowledge one has before creating intention, the less fear when making adjustments in relation to that intention. And more balance between the intention and flow. A clear and calm mind is able to move with the flow of the evolving path.  In the context of glassblowing, there’s a fundamental baseline of muscle memory. You have to spend enough time building up the ability to properly talk to the material. Like with a martial art, it takes a certain amount of time and experience training your body to move and react well. You have to build up enough experience so that, when letting go and flowing in the environment, your body will react. If you let go without those fundamentals you can hurt yourself or the thing being created.  Being unable to let the intention go and then feeling like taking charge with forcing more intention can result. Moving with the flow can work around the tension that’s still there.
