Generating an Essence: A Practice

Aviv Shahar

February 7, 2023

Portals practices are a wide array of activities and processes that can enhance well-being, inner balance and harmony. Practices help us integrate our inner lives and awareness and connect to our natural creative potential. We’re also tuning our lives to the greater intelligence, strength and support that is always available to us.

With the practice of essence generation, we begin to rediscover and reconnect to the natural creative potential that is the birthright of every person. New perceptions and practical steps demonstrate how we can use our innate higher capacities to generate care, patience, healing, love — any of the finer qualities, virtues and essences that enhance our life. The practice begins with an overview of the line of natural human development, and an example of how practitioners might generate the essence of care and healing.

Please feel free to share with us the feelings and benefits you registered with this or other Portals practices. This practice is part of the continuing Portals discovery into what is emerging on the frontiers of human experience in this time of profound change.

  • 1: Clear a mental and physical space for a time of contemplation
  • 2: Consider the natural development and creative potential the practice outlines
  • 3: Choose the quality or virtue you want to generate
  • 4: Spend a few moments registering and appreciating what the essence brings
  • 5: Write and/or speak out loud the appreciative sentiment you are generating about the essence. Ideally gather with a circle of friends to cultivate together your essence generation in conversation.

The human is never meant to be separated from the blessing realms of natural presence and essence that offer vitality, well-being and buoyancy. We are naturally afforded the capacity, the power, the design, the faculty, to generate and connect to the full range of universal essence.
