Chapter 7 has some real gems. The title is “Lifting the Veil.” Here, Eric gives a lot of specific data on “how to” work with spiritual energy. For example, he discusses energy points:
“When you focus on a particular nervous system in your body by touching the corresponding chakra, that energy is converted into a fuel you can use for spiritual or psychic purposes.”

This chapter brings up energy that is seen as a static or mist. He describes it later on as like pixels. I’ve seen it for most of my life, so I shared some reality here with Eric.
“When you watch the news on TV, it is usually negative so it creates anxiety in you. This is the type of thing that grounds you to a low level of survival.

I completely agree with that. In my life, I’ve found I pick up on the emotional states of others and sometimes it really gets to me… anxiety in traffic, fear at a job, anger with others… Eric offers some real advice on dealing with that (cutting the webbing of people’s thoughts around us.)
This chapter also comes with diagrams and text about energy exercises. Very useful. In the 2nd to last paragraph of Chapter 7 he offers some advice that I find powerful, “When you watch the news on TV, it is usually negative so it creates anxiety in you. This is the type of thing that grounds you to a low level of survival.” Eric Pepin. Handbook of the Navigator (Kindle Locations 1433-1434). Higher Balance Institute. Kindle Edition.
Chapter 8 (Simulated Reality) is again a great gem. Eric brings up the ideas that the reality we see isn’t “real.” This is agreement with Hinduism which calls our mundane consciousness an illusion.
This chapter is filled with so much. It could be 3 more chapters. One of the big things discussed here is the “tones.” This is very big in the Higher Balance system and is called “The Higher Balance Method.” While reading this book, I also got some links from their marketing team on the tones. I watched the videos and indeed, there is truth here.
Recommend you view his videos for more info (google “higher balance method.”) I found one on Youtube, embedded below:
Chapter 10 (Multidimensional Meditation) opens with quieting the mind. This is nothing new, but a good review from Mindfulness practices you could find in Buddhism.
The actual process of his Meditation System is discussed in detail in chapter 12 (“Finding Inner Balance.”) It’s also mentioned in the meditation systems sold on his site (with a pamphlet describing the hand positions and the audios giving the guided meditation.)
When I bought Eric’s book, I also got access to some free meditations of his. One, in particular, was the Phoenix Meditation. I really liked it. It comes with different audio backdrops and the pamphlet describes where to touch each chakra he deals with. He guides through a meditation that I found helpful and useful. It seemed powerful to me and I would write more about it, except it exceeds beyond the scope of this book review.
I will however share a meditation from Eric and Higher Balance. Personally I found this meditation to be quite amazing:
I also appreciate his ideas on dealing with “glitches.” There’s a video of one of his supporters, who claimed to have witnessed such a reality glitch. It’s interesting and worth checking out.
Glitches are cool to discuss… click Next to get more info on his context of the idea of glitches in reality…
