Blueprints of our Physical Bodies

"We are all perfect at that split-second moment before conception. Of course, like a building before the foundation is laid, at that moment our beings are only blueprints. These blueprints — the numinous plans laid out for our embodiment — are perfect. At the moment of conception — the moment the egg is fertilized by the sperm — the embryo body begins to take shape. It’s the moment when, were we able to stand over our perfect blueprints, we might wonder if they can be executed as designed. From the moment we’re born, any one of thousands of stimuli — within or out of our control — can alter our growth, assuring degrees of deviation from the blueprint for our unique embodiment.
"After activating the Kundalini-Life Force, I was able to see the blueprint of my perfect body and compare it to my altered state. Amazingly, the Life Force recognized my deformity and immediately began to correct it. I witnessed it slowly reshape my body to the exact proportions in the blueprint. So — and this requires a leap of logic — if I could see the original design for my body and it was perfect in every way, there must be some sentient agency that created this design. And even though my growth took a detour on account of my deformity, the blueprint continued to exist in some ethereal computer-memory-like storage, waiting for the day that I might learn of its existence and find a way back to it.
"Happily, GFM, the method of meditation I practiced, restored my deformed body to its original state, and, in so doing, proved both the existence of the blueprint and the restorative power of the Kundalini-Life Force. This sounds an awful lot like Intelligent Design, doesn’t it? A permanent blueprint of our beings and a mechanism within the body capable of restoring it to its intended state."
~ Deciphering the Golden Flower One Secret at a Time - JJ Semple

I suppose many readers pass over the above without a second thought. One reader, however, challenged me to explain these words when he posted this inquiry on the Forum,"Dear JJ: How does a person access their blueprint? It's not clear from your book."

I got to thinking, and I had to agree: It isn't entirely clear, but not because my description is poor — it's the best I can do — but because you can't see the mountaintop until you're on top of the mountain. 

So what's the real issue? For one, the only way to describe a phenomenon like this is by liberal use of imagery: "perfect body," "template shroud,"  "sentient agency," "bodily substantiation," "controlling field," "permanent blueprint?" What do these terms mean? Two, we have to determine what this blueprint is before we can talk of accessing it.

I don't know any way of doing this without using more imagery. No words suffice or exist for those who have never experienced the energy continuum. But I won't compound the difficulty by adding more imagery.

I was able to see two separate bodies, one, my actual physical form; the other, my intended form which lay over my physical body like a template shroud. Now I didn't actually see it so much as sense its surrounding me like an aura. I knew it was there; I knew it was perfect. I knew the physical body could be "stretched" to fit this causal body, using it as a blueprint to restore my physical body to its intended form. So how did I know it?

Simply that once the Kundalini rose, my nervous system found another level of activity, as if it morphed from a chugging Model-T Ford to the Warp Drive propulsion that characterizes fictional Star Trek spacecraft. My mind's eye perceived my aura shimmering around my body. See my aura? I had never been able to beforehand.

Whole lifetimes without seeing one's aura is par for the course of life, in most cases. It could have easily been mine. Yet when it happened, it was a feeling greater than enchantment; it signaled a complete breakdown of the duality paradigm. I realized I was a part of a greater whole, that I extended beyond the limits of my physical body into an infinite horizon.

I wasn't able to get to the state that allowed me to perceive the blueprint until I had successfully mastered all steps of the method. Yes, there are many other types of awakening experiences, many induced by other sorts of stimuli or triggers, but I only know mine.

I can tell you about it, I do in my books, but you shouldn't rely on me. In fact, the more you rely on me, the less likely you are to actually experience any of this as anything but an intellectual exercise. A big part of the method — of any method — is the challenge of validating everything you see, hear, and feel as your practice progresses. An even bigger part is practicing the method until you become a trained observer of the inner landscape. Complete the method — all parts, all steps — as per the instructions. When you do, you won't be asking questions: you will have answered them the only way possible — by hard work and practice. Only then can you expect to reach states attainable by completing the work.

What's more, there are no guarantees in this work, you shouldn't expect them. Success (whatever that is*) depends on your Karma, your efforts, your conditioning, and the method you use. Is GFM is the only method that induces permanent Kundalini? No, there are other methods and I encourage you to explore them. I can vouch for GFM; I can't vouch for any other method. Sensing the blueprint and seeing the inner workings of my being only occurred after I was deeply into the process, i.e., months and months of working at it. It's not a question of fairness, that I can see it but you can't. It's a question of practice and training.

If you play around with a lot of methods, you may have some Kundalini experiences, even a Kundalini awakening, perhaps. The question is: will they be complete enough for you to witness the inner workings of your being?
* You should have a goal and a roadmap; many individuals don't; they dabble and flail about, then wonder why they're not successful. Success is dependent on many factors. If there was a magic Kundalini elixir, that would be great, but as of now, there isn't. Nevertheless, a good way to find out about the design for your Being is to practice Kundalini meditation.

  1. Thank you for revisiting your blueprint experience particularly the aspect of just knowing without knowing how you know. That is familiar. I once saw how embodiment was hugely different from being disembodied and it had that quality of knowing such that I would be a fool to dismiss it. The best description of that kind of functioning I have ever read is in Eben Alexander;s recent book "Proof of Heaven" where he describes his NDE. He talks about being in a state where the moment be engages a topic his knowledge of it just grows like a plant - very different from our usual consciousness and learning process.

    That said I have been living with the Kundilini awakening I had several years ago as a result of practicing GFM. I continue the practice and I keep changing.Everyone's experience, as you say, is different. It happened at a later age for me and my bent back has been very resistant to change - although I recognize it as a physical manifestation of the discrepancy between my potential - my blueprint - and what I actually am. It is a bit late in life to expect to reshape such a deformity, but I don't give up. Recently my back has begun to change and is hurting in new places and ways. I believe this is because the energy is making its way further up the spine but of course it may just be further degeneration. ;-) In either case I accept the change and am glad of it. What I do notice for sure is greater clarity of mind. I had a good enough intellect to get through a good university and become a middling college professor, but always knew I was operating way below my potential. Since Kundilini something peculiar happened. When I read obscure works like Jung's Psychology and Alchemy or more generally the writings of mystics they are now much more transparent and no longer obscure and difficult. This experience is explained in part because I now actually have some spiritual experience, not just intellect, to bring to the material, but it is more - it is an improvement in mental functioning. More recently I notice that when I try to express myself on these sorts of topics and even everyday practical ones I find myself better able to push through to a coherent conclusion - something I have had difficulty with all my life. Again thank you for your persistence in stating and restating your experience so that those of us on that not so private road can increase our understanding.
