How To Awaken Kundalini: 10 Powerful Methods

Published

on

how to awaken kundalini image

The term “Kundalini” used by yogis means the Sacred Fire located in the area of the base of the spine. The Kundalini has seven layers; each of these layers has seven sub-layers. Therefore, there are forty-nine degrees of its awakening. In other words, the question is not so much whether the Kundalini has awakened or not, but how much or to what degree it has awakened. In this article, I want to share with you some of my research on how to awaken kundalini.

Why Is Kundalini Energy So Important For Spiritual Practice?

Kundalini energy allows the brain cells to register spiritual experiences and urges. The capabilities of the physical body, especially the brain and nervous system, increase. After a while, a person whose Kundalini has awakened to a high degree can become a genius, a great charismatic leader or a great spiritual teacher.

When Kundalini awakens, the positive and negative traits of a person’s character are much more intense. Kundalini energy is similar to fertilizer: just as fertilizer stimulates the growth of any seeds in the soil, Kundalini brings to life all the ancient seeds present in man – both good and bad. Therefore, a person entering the spiritual path experiences the strongest internal struggle. Therefore it is very important to practice inner purification.

One of the side effects of an improper, premature Kundalini awakening is excessive, uncontrolled sexual desire. A man can become a violent sex maniac. In some cases, a person may develop an excessive sense of pride or even megalomania.

Kundalini Energy In Different Traditions

Egypt

Pharaoh image

In Egypt, the awakened Kundalini energy, rising to the center of the head, was symbolically depicted as a snake on the headdress of the Pharaoh. During ancient times, the Pharaoh was presented as being enlightened, an advanced personality on the path of the spirit, and a wise and benevolent ruler.

China

In China, the sage who managed to fully awaken Kundalini energy and took control of it was depicted as a man riding a dragon. This is how Bodhisattva Quan Yin is depicted in some paintings.

India

OM NAMAH SHIVAYA image

In India, the degree of awakening of Kundalini energy is symbolized by the number of cobras rising above the head of yogi. The number of cobras indicates the number of already awakened Kundalini layers. Sometimes you can see a statue of a meditating yogi with one, three or even five cobras above his head. However, it is rare to see an image of seven cobras. Seven cobras symbolize a soul that has reached a very high level of development, for example, a great spiritual teacher.

In the Indian tradition,  Shiva represents spiritual energy and Shakti, symbolizing female power, which represents kundalini.

Christianity

In the esoteric Christian tradition, “the condescension of the Holy Spirit” represents spiritual energy and “sacred fire” represents Kundalini. This is what John the Baptist says in the Bible, “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” (Matthew 3:11) In other words, it means that someone will come to give spiritual initiation or to give spiritual power.

The Holy Spirit is the spiritual energy, while the Holy fire is the Kundalini energy located at the base of the spine. When Shiva and Shakti, or the Holy Spirit and the Holy fire, unite, the spiritual energy awakens the Kundalini energy and raises it to the crown chakra, which leads to spiritual enlightenment, or expansion of consciousness. This sexual union of the Holy Spirit and the Holy fire is also what is meant by being born again. Just like a child is born of sexual union to become enlightened or reunited with God in Heaven one must be reborn and baptized through the sexual union of Holy Fire and the Holy Spirit.

Europe

In the European tradition, this spiritual energy is called “Prince charming“, and the Kundalini energy is called “Sleeping beauty”. When “the Prince” kisses the “sleeping” Kundalini energy it awakens and these two energies rise together to the center of the crown. After that, the Prince and the Princess got married and “lived happily to the end of their days”. Sometimes fairy tales are created by great spiritual teachers to convey inner teachings and practices to spiritually Mature disciples.

A comparative study of different traditions will help you understand spiritual truths from a universal point of view, not just from the point of view of one culture. These examples show that the truth is universal. And spiritual truths do not belong to any culture or religion.

Kundalini Awakening Preparation

Usually, people ask how to awaken Kundalini but they don’t even know that they need to pass the preparation process first.

There are many methods of Kundalini awakening. Proper preparation is necessary!

  1. First of all, you need to purify your physical and energetic bodies so that the awakened Kundalini energy can move easily and unhindered without harming your physical body.
  2. It’s important to practice inner purification by means of character progression. You can achieve this through the development of virtues and the eradication of vices and bad habits.
  3. You need to activate your higher chakras (particularly the Heart and the Crown chakra) BEFORE you start practicing the methods of Kundalini awakening.

Activation of the Heart chakra is necessary for increasing intellectual abilities and willpower.

Activation of the Crown chakra allows the spiritual energy to descend in order to:

  1. safely awaken the Kundalini energy;
  2. awaken it to a higher degree;
  3. regulate the Kundalini energy.

Kundalini Awakening Symptoms

Kundalini awakening symptoms image

The descriptions of the Kundalini awakening in yogic traditions and in modern western spiritual traditions are very different. The most typical, so-called “classical way” describes Kundalini awakening starting from the base of the spine up to the head along the Central energy channel, Sushumna. As a rule, the awakening begins, with the heating of the base of the spine. Then the heat rises along the spine and spreads throughout the body. When the Kundalini reaches the level of the heart, it begins to pulse rapidly. If the Kundalini reaches the head, there may be a feeling of light coming from the third eye or from the top of the head.

Sometimes the awakening of the Kundalini begins with the twitching of the toes. Then the tremor rises up the legs and covers the whole body. Sometimes Kundalini is crawling along the spine slowly and gently. Sometimes it can instantly move from one energy center to another. There are cases when Kundalini instantly reaches the center of the head.

For some people, Kundalini awakening is accompanied by sexual pleasure. Sometimes Kundalini rises with piercing pain in the spine or in energy centers. The rise of Kundalini can be accompanied by involuntary, spontaneous movements of the body, fixation of unusual poses or yoga poses. Often the breath rhythm changes. A person can see the light and hear different sounds. Some people see the visions of images or fragments of a real physical body. Sensitivity to odors may increase.

How To Awaken Kundalini?

kundalini mantra image

Now that we have covered the preparation needed,  I can finally share with you how to awaken Kundalini.

The Bihar school of Yoga describes how to awaken Kundalini and gives 10 main methods.

1. Awakening by birth

If parents have a high level of spiritual development, it contributes to Kundalini awakening of their child.

2. Regular mantra practice

This method takes a lot of time and patience. You should have a guru who will give you the necessary mantra. Such a guru himself should have his Kundalini awakened, know Tantra and Yoga.

3. Tapasya

This is the purification of the mind and emotions from inferiority complexes. Tapasya is a psychoemotional process that eradicates bad habits and strengthens the will. This is the path for ascetics who are strong in spirit.

The term “tapasya” basically means a practical spiritual discipline that involves deep meditation, self-discipline, and efforts to reach self-realization. By practicing tapasya you can reach spiritual liberation.

4. Awakening with the help of power plants

In the ancient Vedic texts of India, there is mention of the soma plant. It’s a creeping plant that’s picked on the special Moon days. By taking Soma juice people reach the state of clairvoyance, divination, and revelation. The method of preparation of this drink is secret. The use of drugs or psychedelics has nothing to do with it.

5. Raja yoga

reiki master meditation image

This is a very powerful method of perfecting the mind by concentrating, meditating, and merging with the Divine. But I have to say that Raja Yoga practice without prior Hatha Yoga practice sometimes may lead to depression. It requires a lot of patience, time, discipline and perseverance. For most modern people it is very difficult.

Raja yoga is aimed at establishing control over one’s mind. In Raja yoga practitioner mainly focuses on how to control his mind, although certain minimum practices of asanas and pranayamas also take place as part of the preparatory process for meditation and concentration.

There are eight stages or levels in the practice of Raja yoga:

  1. YAMA
    Yama is a set of ethical norms that teach us to communicate with others in the right way. To be brief, it means one thing: treat people the way you want them to treat you.
  2. NIYAMA
    The step of forming the self-discipline and uplifting spirituality. This step involves regular visits to temples, meditative practices, a study of nature, thinking and walks.
  3. ASANA
    Body care is one of the most important stages on the path to spiritual growth and enlightenment. Performing certain asanas, we learn concentration and self-discipline.
  4. PRANAYAMA
    It is the ability to control your breath. Pranayama is a set and a system of special techniques that make it possible to establish a relationship between breath, mind, and emotions. Pranayama practice allows us to rejuvenate the entire body and prolong your lifespan.
  5. PRATYAHARA
    It is the ability to concentrate and not be distracted by various external stimuli. This step gives us the vision of the internal systems, understanding what can stop our personal and inner growth.
  6. DHARANA
    Dharana means ‘concentration’ or ‘single focus’. This is how we can calm down our mind, which distracts us from knowing more than we are able to understand. It helps us to see the limitless of our possibilities.
  7. DHYANA
    Dhyana means ‘contemplation, reflection’ and ‘profound, abstract meditation’. This is the stage of the full development of the properties of meditation and concentration.
  8. SAMADHI
    This is a state of intense concentration that can be achieved through meditation. Samadhi is a state of bliss and understanding. Samadhi is the highest stage of meditation, in which we experience oneness with the universe. In samadhi, the mind becomes still. We become totally aware of the present moment.

6. Pranayama

Meditation for beginners tips image

If the disciple is sufficiently prepared, practices intense pranayama in a quiet and peaceful environment, eats only to sustain life, one day his Kundalini will explode like lightning and rapidly rise to Sahasrara. However, for those who are not prepared in advance physically, emotionally, mentally and intellectually, the explosion of energy can be tragic. Pranayama is an elitist method. It is very complex and not everyone can cope with it. However, I want to share with you one of the pranayama techniques that can help to awaken Kundalini.

The Pranayama Technique:

  1. When performing this exercise, it is necessary to concentrate on the basis of the spinal column – the first chakra (Muladhara). The first chakra is the location of the Kundalini energy.
  2. Close your right nostril with the thumb of your right hand. Inhale through the left nostril, while slowly pronounce the mantra “Om” 3 times. Imagine that together with the air you draw prana out of space.
  3. Then close your left nostril with your pinky finger and the ring finger of your right hand and hold your breath, pronouncing the mantra “Om” 12 times. Send a flow of Prana down the spine right into the base of the first chakra. Imagine that energy strikes the base of the spine (the first chakra) and awakens Kundalini.
  4. Then slowly exhale through the right nostril, pronouncing the mantra “Om” 6 times.
  5. Continuing to cover the left nostril with the pinky finger and ring finger, inhale through the right nostril, at the same time slowly pronounce the mantra “Om” 3 times. Imagine that together with the air you draw prana out of space.
  6. Then close your right nostril with your thumb and hold your breath, pronouncing the mantra “Om” 12 times. Send a flow of Prana down the spine right into the base of the first chakra. Imagine that energy strikes the base of the spine (the first chakra) and awakens Kundalini.
  7. Then slowly exhale through the left nostril, pronouncing the mantra “Om” 6 times.

Start with performing this exercise up to 3 times before meditation. With time and practice, it is possible to increase the duration and frequency of pranayama. Do this gradually and carefully, according to your abilities and capabilities.

7. Kriya Yoga

meditating woman image

This is the easiest, softest and most accessible method for a modern person. Kriya yoga is an ancient meditative technique for controlling energy and breathing. It is also a comprehensive spiritual path that includes meditation practices and proper living. The correct practice of Kriya Yoga allows the heart, lungs and nervous system to slow down naturally, creating a deep inner silence of the body and mind, thus freeing attention from the constant cycle of thoughts, emotions and sensory perceptions. In the state of this clarity and inner silence, there is a feeling of deep inner peace and harmony with your soul and with the Supreme.

8. Tantric initiation

This initiation is a very powerful experience for those who seek to control their feelings, passion and understand the nature of the Shiva-Shakti principles. In this case, a Guru helps to awaken Kundalini. The student may not even notice how he spontaneously crossed the path of ascension to superconsciousness.

9. Shaktipat

Many people believe that this is the safest method to awaken Kundalini. The Teacher personally should perform this method for his disciple. The initiated disciple can instantly enter the altered state of consciousness. He may, without prior training, to perform the asanas, understand mantras and Sacred Scriptures.

The right to shaktipat (initiation) does not depend on social status or behavior of a person. One can live 50 years as an ascetic, austere practices, and penance and still not receive shaktipat. And someone can live a normal life and receive the blessing from the Teacher at the very first meeting. It depends on the development of consciousness, which gives the Teacher the right to give someone Shaktipat. This is what only the Teacher can see. It is not an indicator of intellectual, emotional or religious development and is not related to lifestyle, nutrition or thinking.

10. Abnegation

This is a paradoxical method of Kundalini awakening without any desire to its awakening. By following this path you’re living according to this principle: “I’m not going anywhere. The Universe takes care of everything. I accept everything that comes to me.” And if you really believe that, Kundalini will eventually wake up.

Abnegation automatically affects the heart of a person, and this impact is not understood by many, because only a few reach the level of development at which abnegation becomes possible. This action ignites a spark of spirituality in the soul. And when a person reaches this stage, he/she takes the first step on the path to spirituality. The spark produced by this action in the depths of the heart turns into a flame, into a torch illuminating life. It changes the whole Outlook of life. The whole world seems different.

The Magic Of Kundalini And Its Mystery

kundalini yoga image

The Kundalini experience is a universal phenomenon and it does not belong exclusively to the tradition of Yoga. It was common for most cultures and traditions to keep knowledge about Kundalini in a great secret. Back in the days, only Masters had the right to pass this knowledge to their disciples.

The greatest mysteries of ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome were connected to Kundalini awakening. Kundalini is also known in the tradition of Christian Gnostics and Neoplatonists, in Kabbalah and Christian ascetics.

Although Kundalini awakening has always been a mystery, there are many cases when energy manifests itself unexpectedly, in completely unprepared people. Quite often it happens with teenagers during puberty. Some people connect it with hormone increase. For a similar reason, there are many cases when women spontaneously experienced Kundalini awakening during the change of hormones.

Sometimes people who are not familiar with Yoga and the concept of Kundalini may experience its awakening without the understanding of what is going on with them. They may complain that they can not sleep at night, feel the heat, the flow of energy, vibrations, etc. Also, they may feel the waves of pleasure in their bodies that they have never experienced before. Instead of using this situation for cognition and spiritual growth, usually, these people go to the doctor. The doctor does not know what it is, but treats it anyways, saying that it is hormonal change.

To learn more about symptoms of Kundalini awakening read the article “Kundalini Awakening Symptoms Everyone Should Know“.

Conclusion

Due to the fact that Kundalini awakening is quite a serious and multi-layered process, there is no room for haste. It is necessary to take your time for consciousness to keep up with the ongoing energy changes. It is important to go through all the necessary stages on this very deep, delicate, transformational path. Sometimes this does not happen as quickly as we would like, and it is certainly important to continue the practice. At some point, it may seem that nothing is happening, or that you are not moving forward. But the thing is – it is just an illusion that your inpatient mind creates. Keep practicing, and at the end of the process, you will certainly see the result.

I hope in this article you found some answers on how to awaken Kundalini. I’m wishing you good luck in your spiritual practices and self-realization path. Namaste!

Feng Shui Wealth Corner: Super Effective Activation Tips

Published

on

Feng Shui Wealth Corner Activation Image

For a long time, Feng Shui was considered a divine gift, so only members of the Imperial family had access to this sacred knowledge. The practice of Feng Shui at that time was equated to matters of national importance. Therefore, for a very long time, Feng Shui was considered a secret doctrine, which was forbidden to spread outside the Imperial Palace.

Nowadays, the popularity of Feng Shui is gaining momentum, not only in the East but throughout the world. Thus, many people are convinced of the effectiveness of Feng Shui techniques.

In this article, I want to share with you very effective tips on how to activate a Feng Shui wealth corner to attract financial success.

Magical Power Of Feng Shui

Basic Feng Shui Activation image

I always say that in order to start practicing Feng Shui in your house, you need to perceive your home as a living organism that acts as a mediator between you and the Universe.

The house can tell a lot about its inhabitants. If the energy circulates freely in your house, then it is easy for you to attract money, prosperity, and happiness. However, if the energy space of your house isn’t organized properly, then it begins to stagnate energy, the energy flow is disrupted, and you start to attract all kinds of troubles. It may seem unbelievable but sometimes it is enough just to throw away old things and rearrange the furniture and your life begins to change for the better.

When we begin to use Feng Shui, we turn our house into an oasis amidst the hustle and chaos of everyday life. With a proper Feng Shui, our house becomes “an island of light, harmony, and beauty” that charges us with positive and healing energy. And through the harmonization of energy in the house, we ourselves start radiating light and harmony.

Feng Shui Wealth Corner

Money Image

According to the Bagua map, the Feng Shui wealth corner is located in the Southeast part of your house. This sector is responsible for wealth, prosperity and financial success.

If you’ve never heard about Feng Shui Bagua, read my previous articles:

Feng Shui Bagua: 8 Aspirations

The Feng Shui Bagua Map: How to Use It?

When we turn our attention to the Southeast corner of our house and adjust it according to Feng Shui rules, we are able to attract unexpected financial assistance, in addition to the salary, as well as growth in material terms.

For example, if you need money for an expensive purchase, the energy of the Southeast sector will quickly attract the necessary amount of money. If you are mired in debt, the activation of Feng Shui wealth corner will not only help solve financial difficulties but also double your finances.

5 Feng Shui Taboos For Your Wealth Corner

Before I start sharing Feng Shui tips for your wealth sector activation I want to warn you about 5 Feng Shui taboos for this sector. Check these taboos to make sure your Southeast isn’t damaged.

#1 Bathroom

white bathroom image

If you have a bathroom in your wealth sector then you probably noticed that it’s not easy for you to achieve your goals or express yourself in your profession. A southeast bathroom can also be a reason for the lack of creativity or problems with the lower back. And what’s most important, a southeast bathroom damages your money flow.

How to Heal?

Even if you have Southeast bathroom you don’t have to move. Don’t worry! I have some healing tools for your Wealth sector:

  • First of all, place a small mirror on the floor of your bathroom behind the toilet with a reflecting surface upwards.
  • To hold the Qi energy, tie all the pipes in the bathroom with red strings.
  • Keep the toilet lid always closed.

#2 Fireplace

fire place feng shui image

If you have a fireplace in your Southeast sector it creates a thread to the element of this sector which is Wood. As you know, fire burns wood. And since Wood is the element of money then it also destroys your finances.

How to Heal?

You can heal your Southeast by placing Water element. As you know, Water extinguishes Fire. A wall mirror symbolizes Water element. So you can just place a wall mirror above the fireplace and your Wealth sector will be healed just like that!

#3 Trash Can

Of course, it’s best to move your trash can somewhere else. But if you can’t do that then at least get a trash can with a lid and always keep it closed.

#4 Dangerous Plants

Cactus pot in Feng Shui Image

Cacti are very dangerous plants for your Wealth sector, as their thorns spread negative energy around and damage your money luck.

In addition, you should never keep dry and withering plants in your Southeast corner, since your finances will fade along with the withering plant.

Keep healthy, green, strong and blooming plants in your wealth sector instead, and then your finances will also be “blooming”.

#5 Broken Items

Check if you keep any broken items in your Southeast sector. If so you have to fix them or through them away. Keep in mind, that everything you keep in your Southeast sector represents your financial situation. If you don’t want your finances to be “broken” you have to get rid of all broken items in your Wealth sector!

What If My Southeast Sector Is Missing?

Unfortunately, there are lots of houses/apartments where the Southeast sector is missing. If this sector is missing then people who live in such a house usually experience difficulties in finding their purpose in life, it’s hard for them to professionally express themselves, they have a lack of creativity, they may even have problems with their lower back. Such a damaged layout usually affects women over 14 years old and people with Kua 4 the most

If your house is missing a Wealth sector you can simply activate the Southeast corner in your living room. For doing this, simply use the recommendations below.

9 Ways to Activate Your Wealth Corner

Never activate wealth energy in your bedroom (even if it’s located in the Southeast)! This is due to the fact that the bedroom is dominated by the Yin energy, which is necessary for a good rest and recharging. And the wealth energy, on the contrary, is Yang. If the bedroom keeps too much Yang energy, it can lead to stress and bad rest. You can become nervous and irritable.

If your bedroom is located in the Southeast then you can activate the Southeast corner of your living room instead.

#1 Color

Feng Shui Money Plants Image

Southeast corner of your house is ruled by the Wood element. Its colors are green and purple. Accordingly, to activate this sector, it is good to use green and purple colors for its decoration.

It would be perfect to place a large amethyst crystal in your wealth sector. Amethyst crystal is a great wealth activator, especially for this sector. Or, for example, put a viola plant in a pot in this sector.

#2 Wood

Wooden Dining Table Image

Since the element of the Southeast sector is wood, your wooden furniture placed in this sector can be a great wealth activator. You can also add some wooden decorative items into your interior design.

#3 Water

According to the Five Elements Theory of Cycles, Water produces Wood. Therefore, we need to bring the Water element into our Southeast corner to “feed” our Wood.

Water objects activate and attract wealth energy. However, you should never use a rapid and strong flow of water in this sector, but to use the accumulation of water (such as a pond, pool, or aquarium) instead.

#4 Light

The Southeast sector should be well lit! If your wealth sector is in the shade, be sure to hang a lamp here, and keep it on most of the time.

#4 Number 4

Yes, you read it right! 4 is the number of wealth sector. Therefore, to activate wealth energy you can place anything in the amount of 4. For example, you can hang 4 pictures on the wall. Or it can be 4 plants.

#5 Shape

The shape that activates money energy in the wealth corner is a rectangle stretched upwards. This shape resembles the tree trunk. And as you already know, the element of the wealth corner is the Wood. So this shape symbolizes this element and thus activates wealth energy. Be sure to find some decorative items of this shape and place them in your Southeast corner.

#6 Xun Trigram

Xun Trigram Image

To activate the wealth corner of your house you can use Xun Trigram. This trigram symbolizes a stable and gradual accumulation of wealth. Just print the picture of this trigram and hang it in a frame in the Southeast sector of your house.

#7 Plants

money tree image

Place the plant with round leaves in your Southeast corner. This will increase the flow of Yang energy and attract favorable Qi to your house. Moreover, the plant is a symbol of Wood element which rules Southeast. Therefore, it activates the wealth energy of your money sector.

#8 Abundance Activators

It’s very favorable to place abundance activators in your Southeast sector:

  • Piggy bank filled with coins (symbol of money luck and abundance);
  • Jewelry box with expensive jewels (symbol of wealth and prosperity);
  • Chic bowl with fresh fruit (symbol of abundance);
  • Chocolate in golden wrappers (symbol of luxurious and sweet life);
  • Vision board.

#9 Chinese Abundance Activators

To activate your Wealth sector, you can place powerful Chinese abundance activators in your Southeast corner.

Chinese Coins

Carlos Castaneda Quotes Image

In this article, we want to share with you Carlos Castaneda quotes. If you’ve read his books, these quotes will help you remember the basic ideas of don Juan’s teachings. And if you have never read his books, then Carlos Castaneda quotes described in this article will help you to get acquainted with this mysterious author and may even inspire you to read his books.

Who is Carlos Castaneda?

Carlos Castaneda is one of the greatest mysteries of the XX century. All we know for sure about this person is that he is the author of ten unique books, each of which became a bestseller, as well as the founder of the publishing company “Cleargreen Inc.“, which currently owns the rights to all his creative heritage. Any other information represents only conjectures, riddles, and assumptions.

Almost throughout his life, Carlos Castaneda hid his personal history, forbade himself to photograph (although a few photos of Castaneda’s still there), and for all life has given only a few interviews.

Carlos Castaneda was a master of hoaxes. Every time he spoke about himself, he came up with a different place of birth, different information about who his parents were, a new “legend” about himself.

His desire to escape from the human eye and avoid any certainty stems from the basic requirement that applies to the magicians of the line of Don Juan – always remain flexible, elusive, not limited to any framework, stereotypes and opinions of people, as well as to avoid any behavioral patterns and reactions. In the terminology of Toltec magicians, this is called “erasing personal history.” Based on this basic premise, we can say for sure that humanity will never know the truth about Carlos Castaneda’s life and whether Don Juan actually existed.

Carlos Castaneda Quotes

#1

“We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.” – Carlos Castaneda

#2

“To seek freedom is the only driving force I know. Freedom to fly off into that infinity out there. Freedom to dissolve; to lift off; to be like the flame of a candle, which, in spite of being up against the light of a billion stars, remains intact, because it never pretended to be more than what it is: a mere candle.” – Carlos Castaneda

#3

Carlos Castaneda Quotes About Anger Image

“I’m never angry at anybody! No human being can do anything important enough for that. You get angry at people when you feel that their acts are important. I don’t feel that way any longer.” – Carlos Castaneda

#4

“Self-pity is the real enemy and the source of man’s misery. Without a degree of pity for himself, man could not afford to be as self-important as he is. However, once the force of self-importance is engaged, it develops its own momentum. And it is this seemingly independent nature of self-importance which gives it its fake sense of worth.” – Carlos Castaneda

#5

“A man of knowledge lives by acting, not by thinking about acting. ” – Carlos Castaneda

#6

“A warrior considers himself already dead, so there is nothing to lose. The worst has already happened to him, therefore he’s clear and calm; judging him by his acts or by his words, one would never suspect that he has witnessed everything.” – Carlos Castaneda

#7

“An average man doesn’t do this, though. The world is never a mystery for him, and when he arrives at old age he is convinced he has nothing more to live for. An old man has not exhausted the world. He has exhausted only what people do. But in his stupid confusion, he believes that the world has no more mysteries for him. What a wretched price to pay for our shields!” – Carlos Castaneda

#8

“A path is only a path, and there is no affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you… Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself alone, one question… Does this path have a heart? If it does, the path is good; if it doesn’t it is of no use.” – Carlos Castaneda

#9

“You have everything needed for the extravagant journey that is your life.” – Carlos Castaneda

#10

“For me, the world is weird because it is stupendous, awesome, mysterious, unfathomable; my interest has been to convince you that you must assume responsibility for being here, in this marvelous world, in this marvelous desert, in this marvelous time. I want to convince you that you must learn to make every act count, since you are going to be here for only a short while, in fact, too short for witnessing all the marvels of it.” – Carlos Castaneda

#11

Carlos Castaneda Quote About Fear Image

“Forget the self and you will fear nothing, in whatever level of awareness you find yourself to be.” – Carlos Castaneda

#12

“I have no routines or personal history. One day I found out that they were no longer necessary for me and, like drinking, I dropped them. One must have the desire to drop them and then one must proceed harmoniously to chop them off, little by little. If you have no personal history, no explanations are needed; nobody is angry or disillusioned with your acts. And above all, no one pins you down with their thoughts. It is best to erase all personal history because that makes us free from the encumbering thoughts of other people. I have, little by little, created a fog around me and my life. And now nobody knows for sure who I am or what I do. Not even I. How can I know who I am, when I am all this?” – Carlos Castaneda

#13

“The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity.” – Carlos Castaneda

#14

“The internal dialogue is what grounds people in the daily world. The world is such and such or so and so, only because we talk to ourselves about its being such and such and so and so. The passageway into the world of shamans opens up after the warrior has learned to shut off his internal dialogue.” – Carlos Castaneda

#15

“In a world where death is the hunter, my friend, there is no time for regrets or doubts. There is only time for decisions.” – Carlos Castaneda

#16

“The world is incomprehensible. We won’t ever understand it; we won’t ever unravel its secrets. Thus we must treat the world as it is: a sheer mystery.” – Carlos Castaneda

#17

“To worry is to become accessible, unwittingly accessible. And once you worry you cling to anything out of desperation; and once you cling you are bound to get exhausted or to exhaust whoever or whatever you are clinging to.” – Carlos Castaneda

#18

“In the universe, there is an un-measurable, indescribable force which sorcerers call intent, and absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link. Sorcerers, or warriors, were concerned with discussing, understanding, and employing that connecting link…Sorcerers, therefore, divide their instruction into two categories; one is for everyday-life state of awareness, the other is for the states of heightened awareness, in which sorcerers obtained knowledge directly from intent, without the distracting intervention of spoken language.” – Carlos Castaneda

#19

Castaneda Quote Image

“The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.” – Carlos Castaneda

#20

“The most effective way to live is as a warrior. A warrior may worry and think before making any decision, but once he makes it, he goes his way, free from worries or thoughts; there will be a million other decisions still awaiting him. That’s the warrior’s way.” – Carlos Castaneda

#21

“Upon learning to see a man becomes everything by becoming nothing. He, so to speak, vanishes and yet he’s there. I would say that this is the time when a man can be or can get anything he desires. But he desires nothing, and instead of playing with his fellow men like they were toys, he meets them in the midst of their folly. The only difference between them is that a man who sees controls his folly, while his fellow men can’t. A man who sees has no longer an active interest in his fellow men. Seeing has already detached him from absolutely everything he knew before.” – Carlos Castaneda

#22

“The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything as a blessing or a curse.” – Carlos Castaneda

#23

“My benefactor told me that my father and mother had lived and died just to have me and that their own parents had done the same for them. He said that warriors were different in that they shift their assemblage points enough to realize the tremendous price that has been paid for their lives. This shift gives them the respect and awe that their parents never felt for life in general, or for being alive in particular.” – Carlos Castaneda

#24

“There is no beginning, the beginning is only in your thought.” – Carlos Castaneda

#25

“What makes us unhappy is to want. Yet if we would learn to cut our wants to nothing, the smallest thing we’d get would be a true gift.” – Carlos Castaneda

#26

“A man of knowledge has no honor, no dignity, no family, no name, no country, but only life to be lived, and under these circumstances, his only tie to his fellow men is his controlled folly.” – Carlos Castaneda

#27

Castaneda Ego Quote Image

Self-importance is our greatest enemy. Think about it – what weakens us is feeling offended by the deeds and misdeeds of our fellowmen. Our self-importance requires that we spend most of our lives offended by someone.” – Carlos Castaneda

#28

“You take yourself too seriously, ” he said slowly. “You are too damn important in your own mind. That must be changed! You are so goddamn important that you feel justified to be annoyed with everything. You’re so damn important that you can afford to leave if things don’t go your way. I suppose you think that shows you have character. That’s nonsense! You’re weak and conceited!” – Dom Juan” – Carlos Castaneda

#29

“Nobody is born a warrior in exactly the same way that no one is born an average man”. – Carlos Castaneda

#30

“He said that I was a man. And like any man I deserved everything that was a man’s lot – joy, pain, sadness, and struggle – and that the nature of one’s acts was unimportant as long as one acted as a warrior. Lowering his voice to almost a whisper, he said that if I really felt that my spirit was distorted I should simply fix it – purge it, make it perfect – because there was no other task in our entire lives which was more worthwhile. Not to fix the spirit was to seek death, and that was the same as to seek nothing since death was going to overtake us regardless of anything. He paused for a long time and then he said with a tone of profound conviction, “To seek the perfection of the warrior’s spirit is the only task worthy of our manhood.” – Carlos Castaneda
