The Drift is something that should be used with caution, as it can drive some people to insanity. It has been used over the centuries, mainly in pagan circles. Like the brainwashing techniques I spoke of in an earlier post, it is always important to know it is self imposed, you can stop at any point, though sometimes that may seem hard to do. This is not something you should play with lightly.
The Drift can be simple or complex, but always a journey. It is up to the user. It is best not to go looking for a point or have a goal in mind, that is why is it called The Drift. You are simply drifting, as if lost at sea in a raft. You have no idea where you are going, but you are traveling some place, where you don't know.
The Drift is used to bring yourself closer to universal knowledge or at least let the universe guide you in a direction, so it can whisper a secret to you. Usually the secret is something you always suspected deep down as a child or if not a secret it will guide you to a person or place. Usually a place you need to be or a person you need to meet.
The complex example of The Drift would be the following:
You are walking down the street and you see a pair of old shoes next to the trash that someone has thrown away. They happen to be your size. You then take off your shoes and put on that pair (A gift from the Universe to you), leaving your shoes in their place. You then walk down the street and see a News clipping blowing on the ground and in bold print you spot the word "Boston". You take yourself to the bus station, airport, train station, or your car, whatever, and travel to Boston. When you step out in the city you see a sign on a store that says "50% of all books.". You enter the store and walk around waiting for a sign and you notice a small child misbehaving, placing some books on the floor. You go over to the books, pick one up and buy it. You can keep going at that point or stop. Had you not seen that random News clipping that was only litter blowing around, you would not have seen the word "Boston", you would not be in that city, in that book store, now in possession of that book you just bought.
Example of the simple Drift: (Which for most is more favorable)
You go to YouTube and watch a video, when it ends it suggests the next video to watch. Pick the first choice offered and keep doing so video after video. When a choice comes up that you have already seen, choose the second choice. Go on and on. Each video is linked to the next. Anything learned is all a result of the first video you watched. Each video with its own unique message and teaching. Some bore you, some don't, on and on you go. You would be surprised how much you can learn in one day or how weeks or months later a topic will arise that you are only informed about because you Drifted.
The caution again is to remember you are in control. You can stop whenever you want. People with major OCD should not take part in The Drift. The Drift has features to it which are almost like schizophrenia. In some people who are schizophrenic, seemingly ordinary objects or information can hold deep meaning to them. To them it can be a sign meant only for them. This is why The Drift should be entered cautiously.
In my last post I said I would continue to post a list of what I have watched since my last blog update. I have continued the self brainwashing with horror films and added in The Drift. Each movie leading to the next. I am using the IMDB site. After I watch each film I go to the site's listing for that film and from that page it lists four other movies I might like. I then watch one of those suggestions and do the same after that movie... following the next suggestion.
