Jedi Training 1 – Inner Navigation




In the original Star Wars film, “A new hope”, The Force is first described by Jedi Master Obi Wan Kenobi – “The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us.  It binds the galaxy together”.

A number of other paranormal Force powers are demonstrated in the film series, including telekinesis, levitation, hypnosis and mind control, as well as extra sensory perception based abilities such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and enhanced empathy.

The development and use of Force abilities requires intense willpower, discipline and concentration.


I would like to note that The Force is basically Chi, Universal energy or the invisible field where thoughts, intensions and information travels freely and can be tapped into, the Akashic records (a term coined in the late 19th century from akasha or ākāśa, the Sanskrit word for “sky”, “space”, “luminous” or “aether”) are a compendium of thoughts, events, and emotions of all past and future believed by theosophists to be encoded in a non-physical plane of existence known as the astral plane) can be tapped into also through this field.


The Force is what a acorn taps into to grow into a mighty Oak tree.

Now take a moment to consider this before reading on ……….


In this modern world we are becoming to accustomed and even reliant on modern technology that if it were to fail we would be to some degree depending on our dependence disoriented.

Giving an example, the G.P.S. (Global position system) is quite a new invention or at least to the general public but most people in the so-called civilised world use this device daily on their mobile phones or in their automobiles to navigate around.


People are sometimes so engrossed in the device that they don’t very well notice where they are walking or driving, we are taking away our focus from our inner knowledge, gut feelings and the logic mind and giving responsibility to this device very trustfully.


In this we loose contact with the skills that we always possessed, that our ancestors and even a couple of generations back used daily and that the bushmen and trackers still use, many describe following a pull in their solar plexus in a particular direction when tracking animals and even at some point when following sensing a silver beam of light on the horizon that was the auric field  of the spirit that was being pursued.  A connection had been established through tapping into the field or energy of the animal through the tracks followed.


I would suggest by being reliant on such devices as G.P.S. we are disconnecting ourselves from these talents that we are all capable of using.


The Force

So how do we tap into this field and connect with “The Force“?


This ability can be developed over time with patience and practice.  I would suggest go into a familiar woods or nieghbourhood and purposely get lost, then take a moment to silence yourself and tune into the energy around you.


Now visualise in your 3rd eye (Ajna Chakra) the seat of Intuition, the place which is your destination and ask to your higher consciousness silently which way.  It may take some practice at first before you become sensitive to the bodies signs, it’s possible to sometimes feel a pull in a particular direction, learn to trust the first feeling and not bring the analytical mind into this feeling.


Another method is to turn your whole body into a pendulum, this can be done by similarly silencing the mind and asking the body to swing in the direction of the place you which to go, almost like Jack Sparrow’s compass in the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean”.

Once you have tuned in the body to swing by practicing on a few things like to swing towards the sun, a tree or a lake for example, test the theory, you can then practice it by visualising again the destination you seek.

In this way you are exercising your intuitive powers, with practice you with become more sensitive and learn to trust that power.


Of course the perfect balance is a marriage between intuition and intellect and this can be achieved by first consulting with your feelings and then checking your environments for signs and confirmations that you are on the right path, nature can give messengers and all landmarks can affirm that we are on the right path, not only when navigating physically to a destination but also throughout life.

Take moments on the way to consult your intuition, continually looking for confirmation that your on the right track.  In time these abilities will prove to be reliable, remember the more disconnected you are from nature and your self or the source, the more challenging this may seem at first, for some these abilities may come very naturally.

If necessary find a peaceful place, relax the body and meditate for 5 minutes, doing 20 calm connected breaths such as I teach in my Rebirthing workshops (Rebirthing) will return you to your calm centre and  bring you to a state of presence where it is easier to tap into “The Force“.
