One of the very valuable tools the Robert Monroe Institute teaches participants when embarking on the exploration of their consciousness, is to state their intent for every Hemi-Sync exercise. At the beginning of any of the courses the participant is asked to memorize the Gateway Affirmation.
Setting up the Intent
Stating your intent is important for any endeavour in life. When starting exploring new realms of the Human Mind, it is a very important tool for getting in the necessary frame of mind.
When you participate at a Monroe Institute course or workshop, you are introduced to this affirmation in the very first Hemi-Sync exercise, the verbal introduction spoken by Robert Monroe himself. After the first exercise, you are encouraged to memorize it. You can listen to a three minutes Hemi-Sync trial here.
The Gateway Affirmation
If you are heading to a Robert Monroe Institute or TMI course you have a chance now to learn the affirmation beforehand. When I participated at the Gateway Voyage for the first time I had no time to memorize it and came up with my own version.
I am more than my physical body. Because I am more than physical matter, I can perceive that which is greater than the physical world.
Therefore, I deeply desire to: to expand, to experience, to know, to understand, to control, and to use such greater energies and energy systems as may be beneficial and constructive to me and to those who follow me.
Also, I deeply desire the help and cooperation, the assistance, the understanding of those individuals whose wisdom, development and experience are equal or greater than my own.
I ask for their guidance and protection from any influence or any source that might provide me with less than my stated desires.
Why the Affirmation matters
After a lot of trial and error, Robert Monroe figured out on his own out-of-body journeys how important it was to state an intent. A firm intent stabilized his OBEs and provided him with more indepth experiences. His vision, perception and quality of encounters with other energies increased dramatically. The affirmation turned out to be a bridge, a passage code or simply a gateway to other dimensions.
Guidelines for Your Own Affirmation
You can of course compose your own affirmation. Just follow these FOUR important guidelines:
- Consider the posibility that you are more than your physical body.
- State your firm intent, how and what you want to experience.
- Ask for help, guidance or assistance of light beings or higher energies
- Ask for protection from energies which are lower than your own.
- Additionally, expressing your gratitude is a powerful way to acknowledge to yourself that assistance will truly be granted. Gratitude will also put you into a state of peace and trust, which will help you on your journey into other realms.
Now you are ready to submerge into the Hemi-Sync process. Remember to have fun and enjoy the ride.
