Vibration is movement, and movement is one of the main signs of life. Life and growth are interwoven, and one of the first signs of massive personal growth or change is shaking or vibration in the body or pelvis.
The push to grow is often thought to come from ambition or ones urge to succeed in life, but that growth is usually from our personality, but the major source of physical and psychological growth is from the process of life. People tend to think of life as an automatic and senseless process. But human experience in personal growth points in another direction. The next example is from a man who had repressed hid sexual feelings for years because of a personal problem. The example shows what happened when he began to emerge from the repression.
Example: But very shortly the urge arose strongly again, this time for O. to handle my genitals, and to suckle her breast. As this happened, the most tremendous sexual feelings arose, and I began to shake and vibrate at the pelvis with pleasure.
The vibration is often a sign of what is often called spiritual growth, but is better named the emergence of a person innate immense potential. Here is a man describing what, because I know his history, was the first sign of great personal growth. See Life
Example: There was a peculiar conscious and semiconscious experience without dream images. My hips and pubic area vibrated. Moved is not the right word, as the movement was too quick. I have seen the movement on a buck rabbit during mating. Not really a backward or forward movement, but very rapid vibration. This occurred with me quite spontaneously, and I relaxed and let it happen. There was no direction as far as I know. It happened about four or five times, then as I became more conscious, disappeared.
Now a description as the person is learning to work with the Life process.
Example: Somehow I felt Life was working on me in this stillness, healing the memory of this traumatic event in me. Then, gradually, a new movement started. I began to shake in the genital movement, my whole body vibrating at fantastic speed. This, I knew, was the full movement, and it had only now been able to break through properly due at last, to the clearing of the enormous fear.
Because such vibrations emerge from the Life process which move us spontaneously – as when we carry on breathing, a spontaneous movement, even while in deep sleep – it can be seen to not be something the person consciously produces, as in the next example.
Example: The vibration was not nearly as fast as it was this time. It is like a very rapid tremor involving the whole body, emanating from the base of the trunk. My wife told me that over the last few weeks she has seen me vibrate like this in sleep several times. She saw me because she had to get up to see to the baby.
Here is someone exploration of their dream which describes how the power of Life works in one.
Example: Great power was being brought to the present life from the past. The present personality will be used to express to many the great power that lives deep within. When your body vibrates during sleep, work is being done on the lower parts of your body. They are being prepared to act as channels for more and more power.
The bent gun represents down-bent sexuality or power. Being bent by Les means that through loving with attachment the power has been directed down instead of up the spine.
The path of the snake through the earth is the path of the energy through the body. The brush is the cleansing of these channels. Like power being expressed in your life, the lower powers must cleanse their pathways.
Example: What I am given to understand is that once those organs start to function it begins to transform the body. New energy or different levels of energy flow through the body. Sometimes the person feels themselves vibrating either as they meditate or sleep, and this is a sign of that new energy. It also shows that in some way, as suggested in the analogy of the seed, when the seed produces a stem and pushes above the soil, it can take in the energy of the sun. So as these organs unfold in a person they become almost like leaves that taking this new energy in.
Here is a full experience, a sort of enlightenment that says it all.
Example: I am in a landscape and notice that everything is brown; the whole world is brown and lifeless. There is also a feeling of solemnity or dullness. I have enough lucidity to wonder why the world of my dream is so brown and dull. As I ask this I become more aware of what feeling the brownness expresses. It is seriousness – with no room for humour or fun. The feeling deepens, real enough and clear enough to look at and understand. I see it is my father’s attitude to life that I have unconsciously inherited. I realise how anxious he always felt about life, and how I took this in. That is how I became a ‘brown’ person. I see too that I do not need to be either brown or serious anymore.
Then the landscape changes. There are trees, plants and animals in brilliant colour. I wonder what this means, and the landscape begins to spin until the colours blend and shimmer. Suddenly my body seems to open to them, as if they are spinning inside of me, and with a most glorious feeling, a sensation of vibrating energy pours up my trunk to my head. With this comes realisation. I see how stupid I have been in my brown, anxious existence, how much life I have held back. The animals and plants are the different forces in my being that blend into energy and awareness. I feel I am capable of doing almost anything, like loving, writing a song, painting, telepathy, or speaking with the dead. This sparkling vibrating energy is life itself and can, if I learn to work with it, I can grow into any ability or direction I choose. I wake with a wonderful sense of my possibilities.
