Vibrate Vibrating Shake Shaking

Vibration and shaking 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 pelvic movement or even electricity running through your body. That was why the Quakers used that name, because they shook or quaked as they were moved by the Life Force or as many people call it – God; also the Shakers had the same experience.

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. See Potential

 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’s 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.

The dreamer felt sure it was a process of loosening up his body and allowing the Life process to do it work of personal growth.

An excellent and full example:

It was with much interest that I read the article by Tony Crisp in the May issue of YOGA & HEALTH concerning the Chakras. 

Many years ago, over a period of about two years, I had constant experiences of the shaking and trembling which Mr. Crisp described in his article. I was very young at the time, happily married with a baby daughter, and although considered to be highly strung, was neither repressed nor mentally disturbed. 

These ‘attacks’ would come upon me almost every night. I would be quite relaxed … and then the quivering would start, very gently at first. It would begin in my toes and then gradually work upwards throughout the whole of my body until it increased in intensity until I seemed to be one great overwhelming vibration. At this point I would feel that some thing or some power was trying to take over, and I would sweat with the effort of holding onto myself. There seemed also to be a great void full of brown light opening beneath me into which I could feel myself sinking. 

I saw several doctors and specialists (my family were very worried about me) but they could find nothing wrong; the symptoms were something they could not account for at all, and they eventually decided that my strange condition was due to ‘nerves’. 

Eventually the experiences ceased, but very soon afterwards, I began to be very interested in Yoga with which I have now been actively associated for nearly twenty years. 

Deep within my heart, I knew that what I had experienced all those years ago was not due to ‘nerves’, and am now convinced that, had I not been overcome with fear, I would have been fortunate enough to undergo some enlightening spiritual experience. 

Because of this knowledge, although practising Hatha Yoga for physical and mental fitness, the real area of my interest lies in the study of Yoga as a whole … as a way of life and as a path towards enlightenment and liberation. And I know too that the experience I had thought to be meaningless and frightening had after all a meaning far beyond my comprehension. Thank you Tony Crisp for confirming and deepening my belief.

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. See The Dowflowing and Upflowing Life Energy

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 in 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. See Dimensions of Human Experience

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.
