Developing Your Awareness and Intuition
In a world that is increasingly chaotic, unpredictable and just a little bit dangerous, the need is greater than ever for caring individuals who wish to devote their lives to helping humankind. The Douglas James Cottrell Institute of Quantum Meditation™ is a facility for teaching qualified students the skills they need to enter the Quantum Meditation™ state. From this state, the High Mind or Akashic Records may be approached, and information may be gathered on virtually any topic or concern. It begins with a determination to develop the ability, combined with a humble desire to help, and a serious commitment to continue to practice.
During this program, Douglas gives students the tools they need to enter the Quantum Meditation™ state. In this deep state of meditation, seekers may approach the Akashic Records to gather information from beyond the limits of physical perception.
“As you develop your own intuition, you will come to learn that the intellect is the real obstacle. Students will always have doubt, questioning whether what they are seeing or perceiving is real or just a creation of their imagination. All you need is someone to validate that your perceptions are genuine, and then the tenacity to keep practicing. One of the lessons I give my students is to tell me what you see, and not what you think. Thinking is a process of using our reasoning faculties to come to a conclusion. It is a process tempered by our own experiences and prejudices. This is not the same as observing. A true practitioner of the intuitive arts does not think, but merely observes and reports back the observations.” – Douglas James Cottrell, Ph.D.
Belief is Based on Evidence
During the course, Douglas will give you real subjects to "read" or "remotely view" and provide you evidence that what you are perceiving is real and helpful. With this reinforcement, your confidence will grow and your abilities will blossom. It can help you to let go of those thoughts that you are inventing or imagining the information. In the beginning, students are plagued with questions of whether they are making it up, or whether they are seeing something they want or expect. Douglas calls this the chattering mind. The course teaches techniques to distract the rational mind with conscious breathing, and to quiet the chattering mind so that the message of the intuitive mind can be perceived with as little colouring as possible.
Can You Meditate?
Many people believe they cannot meditate, but what they do not understand is that meditation is a natural state of mind. Chances are they have been meditating without trying to. If you have ever had the experience of losing time - perhaps while driving a long distance, or while walking along the beach - then your mind is already shifting to that state on its own.
Can you be a Ross Peterson, an Edgar Cayce, or a Douglas Cottrell? I tell my students that only I can be me, and only you can be you. But if you feel the urge to develop your intuition and the many abilities associated with it - from clairvoyance and clairsentience to spiritual healing, prediction, or prophecy—I encourage you to do so, to the best that you possibly can. Take your steps. Find a mentor who can guide you. Small successes along the way will inspire you to keep going. Learn to relax and temper the rational mind that likes to think it is in control. Your intuition can put you in touch with knowledge beyond your conscious understanding…but not by thinking!
