Pulling In and Spiraling SensaBH.PicPullingIntion

“a swirling energy pulling me in” 

“I feel an intense pressure inside of my head; like a weight that is pulling me down.” 

The sensation of pulling or drawing inward is general for the state.  Local sensations are drawing, contracting or pulling inward.  The chest is constricted, difficult to breathe.  Pains are drawing, contracting.  The head is compressed.  The general sensation involves pulling inward so that things are compressed into a weighted and dense mass.  Sometimes the pulling is felt as a weighted sensation.  Things are both being pulled as well as compressed.  

When gas encounters a black hole, it increases its temperature while spiraling into the center. Likewise in the proving, sensations of spinning, as if in a vortex, were found. Several provers experienced vertigo, another felt spinning in his feet and genitals. Whirlwinds, tornados, funnel clouds, and spirals appeared in dreams and mental symptoms.  Undulation, or wave-like sensations were also found in vertigo and mental symptoms. 

Mental symptoms abound with the idea of being drawn to something, to being pulled in and pulled down.  People pull them into energy they don’t want like “a little child pulling on your shirt”.  The pressure of life pulls them down, keeps them from being free.  At other times they are drawn to events, activities, and thoughts as if a force unseen is drawing them.  They may resist the force at times, but often the pull is accepted.

Bird energy (Also see Theme: Bursting and Theme: Swimming, Flying)

It’s also interesting to note the analogy to bird energy.  In the Black Hole the main sensation is that of being pulled in and drawn down.  This is contrasted to the opposite which is open and free as you might experience in outer space.  It’s no coincidence that many of the provers use birds as an analogy to the state.  The provers see birds and talk of birds and flying.  Birds carry this same basic sensation of held down, weighted vs. open and free.  This remedy was also made from the black hole, Cygnus X-1 located in the Cygnus (Swan)
