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?

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!

16 Powerful Ways to Build Good Karma

Published

on

good karma image

The positive karmic experience accumulated during all earthly incarnations tends to be spent aimlessly or changed for the worse, which leads to negative consequences in real life. To reverse this process, it is necessary to constantly improve karma. In this article, I will share with you 16 powerful ways to attract good karma.

But first, let’s find out what good karma actually is.

What Is Good Karma?

Karma is based on cause-and-effect relationships. In other words, we always get back what we give to the world. The more good deeds accumulated on the invisible “account” of each soul, the more bonuses it receives in its future life and next incarnations. If karmic “savings” are spent selfishly, without bringing benefit to others and the planet, then in future reincarnations such a soul will have “to reap the fruits” of his irresponsibility, because karma will change from good to bad.

Therefore, to build good karma is the main goal of every soul.

How Do I Know If My Karma Is Good Or Bad?

What Is Karma Image

If we try to create a simplified model of testing karma, it will be based on four components:

  • relationships with others;
  • health (both physical and mental);
  • prosperity;
  • life purpose.

If each of these components is present in your life, then we can probably say that your karma, in this case, tends to be good. Thus, the good karma manifests itself in the harmony achieved in all spheres of our lives.

However, most people have problems at least in one of these spheres.

Have you seen babies being born with disabilities? This is an example of negative karma brought to this incarnation from past lives. But sometimes healthy people get into car accidents and get disabilities. This would be an example of negative karma that was created during this life.

Why Should We Build Good Karma?

Karma Yoga Image

Bad karma involves problems in all or some areas of life. If a person is haunted by constant failures, negativity, then his karmic debts exceeded the profit from good deeds.

The karmic debts accumulated in all incarnations will result in diseases, poverty, alcohol or drugs addiction, unsuccessful marriages, and other negative consequences.

Do you experience any health problems? Do you have relationship problems? Do you suffer from money loss or poverty? Do you feel like your life has no purpose? If you answered ‘yes’ to at least one of these questions then you should consider taking actions for improving your karma.

How to Build Good Karma?

#1 Keep It Clean

Try to make sure that everything in your life is clean: your body, home, workplace, etc. But especially important to keep your thoughts and actions clean! Keep in mind that negative thoughts, emotions, and actions create negative karma. And positive thoughts and actions create good karma. Be mindful of what you thinking and doing!

Louise Hay Quote On Positive Thinking Image

#2 Get Involved in Charity

This would be especially helpful for those of you who have financial problems. You may say: “How can I do charity if I have no money?” Well, there are different ways to do it. We can help people even if we don’t have money to offer. A kind word, a smile, good advice – this is also a kind of charity that can change someone’s life for the better.

#3 Help Others Selflessly

Maya Angelou Quote On Helping Image

You can offer help to those who are currently suffering. The main thing is not to try to radically correct someone else’s karma. But helping them find their way is quite acceptable.

#4 Self-Development

Inertia is bad for your soul. Instead of dwelling on your past, you should be constantly moving forward. Every day you try to learn something new. Every event that life presents to you should be considered as a life lesson. Every night before you go to bed ask yourself: “What have I learned today? What did I realize today?“. If you find it difficult to answer these questions, then you probably have lost your awareness and mindfulness. Tomorrow will be a new day, try not to waste it!

#5 Spiritual Development

spiritual retreat image

Constant training of the body is well reflected in its appearance and health. But we should also remember to give equal attention to our spirit. The purer your soul is, the higher your moral foundations, moral values, and the easier it is to learn the life lessons on the way to good karma. Make sure to train your mental essence with the help of prayers and meditations.

#6 Love

Radhanath Swami Quote On Love Image

Open your heart to every creature of existence. Make your love available for everyone: people, animals, nature, planet, your work, every action you take, every word you speak, every thought you think. Unconditional love will help you achieve harmony and approach good karma.

#7 Take Responsibility For Your Life

dalai lama quotes joy image

You and only you are responsible for your actions, words, and thoughts. Thus, you and only you are responsible for every event and situation in your life. There’s no point in blaming other people, Government, President, parents, etc. for everything you’re not happy about in your life.

All your failures and successes are the results of your own actions and thoughts. You have the power to change your life, but it will require a change in your thinking. Stop hiding behind the mask of a victim of circumstances. You are the Creator of your own life, so start creating it! The more you take responsibility for your life, the more power you have!

#8 Be Honest

no profanity image

One lie inevitably begets another like a virus. Remember that lost trust is very difficult to regain. After catching you multiple times on lying people will eventually stop believing you. So in relations with others it will pursue misunderstanding and resentment. And sooner or later this will turn into another karmic debt.

#9 Listen to Your Inner Voice

Always remember that your subconscious has the answers to all your questions. You just need to be able to listen. Listen to your inner voice in every situation – this is the Universe talking to you. The more you’re connected to the Universe the more you follow the path that leads you to good karma.

#10 Be In a Present Moment

Eckhart Tolle Quote Image

The past is gone. The future hasn’t come yet. Don’t distract yourself with thinking about your past or daydreaming about the future. Focus on the present moment and live it to the fullest. Put 100% energy and awareness in everything you’re doing in the present moment. The practice of being in the present moment will teach you to live your life consciously.

#11 Pray

Peace mantra Om Shanti Image

When we pray we cleanse our karma. Especially powerful when you pray for other people, animals or planet. But such practice should be consistent and you should put all your attention to focus on the intention of the prayer. You can also use special mantras for purifying karma and chant them daily.

#12 Volunteering

By doing volunteering work you greatly improve your karma!

#13 Be Grateful

Michael Bernard Beckwith Quote About Gratitude Image

Never blame anybody (including God and Universe) for not receiving exactly what you’ve been asking for. If you believe in karma, then you have to accept the fact that we always receive exactly what we deserve.

Therefore if you’re not getting what you want you have to ask yourself: “Why am I not getting this?” Maybe it’s not time yet, or maybe the receiving of what you’re asking wouldn’t serve your Higher purpose and the Universe is trying to show you that you will receive something much better if you’ll be patient and grateful. Be grateful for every little thing you have in your life and very soon you will see that you attract more and more happiness and joy into your life.

#14 Forgive

forgiveness image

Life doesn’t give us lessons that we are not capable of learning. And one of the most important lessons we come to this life for is the lesson of forgiveness. Most people choose not to learn this lesson which leads to repeating it again and again during many incarnations. But if you believe in karma and want to evolve you have to learn to forgive.

Every time we forgive someone we remove a giant block of negative karma and heal our heart. And the thing is, the more hurtful our resentment is, the more cleansing and healing the forgiveness brings to our souls. If you want to build good karma, sometimes the best way to do so is to forgive people for some of the bad vibes they’ve sent your way.

#15 Donate Blood

It is believed that when you donate your blood the ones who need it you improve your karma tremendously. The whole intention behind blood donation is saving someone’s life. And since the law of karma states that we receive what we give, then when you save somebody’s life the Universe will make sure that you will stay safe. Yes, it can even save your life if you experience any danger or health issues in the future!

#16 Inspire

Jay Shetty Quote About Smile Image

Let every person that meets you become happier and inspired. Spread positive vibes and don’t let your negative emotions affect other people. Be mindful of what you’re saying and how you’re saying it.

Listen to other people who need to be heard. Sometimes inspiration is better expressed when we stay quiet to give other people room to speak their truth. Be a patient listener, care for other people, and provide them the type of inspiration they need at the moment.

The Intuitive Empath Self-Assessment Guide: 11 Incredible Traits

Published

on

Intuitive Empath Image

Do you often experience or relate to other people’s feelings? Then, you could be an intuitive empath. Intuitive empaths can tell what other persons are going through emotionally without talking to them. They tend to be creative. By having a raised hunch, they can channel positive energy towards themselves.

Besides, such persons can tell the truth from a lie only by observing the way a person behaves. These traits enable one to live a fulfilling life. In addition, intuitive empaths can be themselves and quickly adjust to a sudden change of circumstances.

However, not all intuitive persons are empaths and vice versa. So, how do you know that you are an intuitive empath? Below are the common character traits.

11 Signs of Intuitive Empath

#1 You Can Differentiate Your Feelings from Those of Others

Narcissist or Empath Quiz Image

Now, whereas an empath is prone to absorbing both negative and positive energies around them and take them up as their own, intuitive empaths react a bit differently. Yes. They have a unique sense to distinguish their feelings from those of others.

Hence, they can create a block and protect themselves from negative forces around them.

For example, in the presence of angry people, intuitive empaths will quickly sense and control how much of this negative energy they will soak up.

#2 You Know Why Others Are Feeling the Way They Do

Empaths know what others feel and take up the feelings as their own. However, intuitive empaths will tell you the reason why this other person is feeling the way they do, even without talking to them.

Their unique ability to link the cause and effects of events around them helps them see what others don’t. Hence, the intuitive empath doesn’t go through the confusion that other empaths go through as they try to figure out why they are feeling the way they do.

#3 You Experience Other People’s Emotions despite Being Miles Apart

Dating an Empath Image

Often, intuitive empaths form a firm bond with others to the extent of feeling the same emotion even if the other person is miles away from them. For example, you may find yourself feeling sad all of a sudden. Upon reaching out to your twin soul, you may find he/she also undergoing sadness.

Other odds include making the same choices, sharing likes and dislikes and dodging similar places.

#4 You Enjoy Assisting Others through Their Healing Processes

Intuitive empaths are excellent listeners. They’d rather listen to other people as they pour out their worries, fears, and challenges. Due to their creativity in solving life riddles, they get joy in helping others. Admittedly, they can put in words what others find hard to express.

Therefore, since they can relate cause and effect, they can easily help others through their healing process. Besides, their welcoming nature, coupled with excellent listening and problem-solving skills makes them shine as counselors, teachers, or coaches.

#5 Your Sixth Sense Is Always On Point

third eye opening symptoms image

Intuitive empaths have a well-developed hunch. In turn, they may find themselves feeling different from others. For example, they know of facts only a few know. Hence, they struggle explaining to their peers about the origin of this information. Besides, most of this information proves true within a short period.

#6 You Are Prone To Premonitions

Do you often have vivid visions of things yet to happen? Do these signs manifest later as reality? Intuitive empaths get can forewarnings about what is to happen in their lives or those of others. These signs may reveal in dreams or even when you are fully awake.

For example, they can tell whether someone is about to get pregnant, make a significant career breakthrough, or about to fall sick. Hence, they often find themselves with a great urge to warn others of impending danger.

However, since these warnings are mere probabilities, an intuitive empath opts to share only those details that are helpful to the other person.

#7 You Can’t Stand Seeing Other People’s Suffering

headache image

Do you find it hard watching violent prank shows? Or, maybe a horror film gets you all up on your chair? You could be an intuitive empath. Indeed, intuitive empaths especially bear the suffering of others around them. They seem too emotional, have extreme mood swings, and struggle to cope with evils around them.

Sometimes, such persons may develop physical symptoms like headaches and fatigue, or resort to overeating and substance abuse as they try to cope.  Eventually, they may try to reduce other people’s pain even if it harms them.

#8 Excellent Mediators

Are you often called upon to mediate between friends who don’t see eye to eye? As they deal with suffering around them, intuitive empaths tend to be true peacemakers. Somewhat, they pull people together (especially persons who quarrel with one another).

#9 You Are a Lone Wolf

Bali meditation image

Intuitive empaths abhor big mobs. They’d rather spend most of their time by themselves or in the company of family members only. Hence, when faced by such sudden groups, they will make up excuses so that they can leave as fast as possible.

#10 You Have a Broader Perspective of Things

Thanks to their unusual insights, intuitive empaths can see the bigger picture in most situations. Admittedly, they follow the way events interconnect, hence know what to expect in every state. This way, they can focus better when tackling tough tasks.

#11 You Easily Connect With Others on a Spiritual Level

intuitive empath spiritual level image

Intuitive empaths easily connect with the spiritual field. Usually, they show divine skills including, palm reading, foretelling with crystal balls, and tarot cards. In addition, they can pick up energy patterns in these sacred tools and understand their essential meaning. This way, they can take part in fruitful meditation sittings.

Conclusion

Intuitive empaths have a more profound grasp of other people’s emotions. Due to this rare trait, they feel the thrill of their surroundings more intensely than others do. In turn, it is almost impossible for them to ignore these senses. Luckily, unlike other empaths, intuitive empaths can control what and how this energy affects them. They can direct this distinct talent towards helping others. Hence, if you suspect that you are an intuitive empath, own your abilities and use them to assist others near you.

“One who loves God sees everything in relation to God. Therefore, their love flows spontaneously toward everyone, at all times, everywhere. They even love those who wish them harm. If you love God, you can’t hate anything or anyone. If the love one offers is met with hate, it doesn’t die; rather, it manifests in the form.”
– Radhanath Swami

#4

Contentment lives only in the hearts of those who are grateful.
– Radhanath Swami

#5

A dog will recognize his master in whatever way he dresses. The master may dress in robes, suit and tie, or stand naked, but the dog will always recognize his master. If we cannot recognize God, our beloved master, when he comes in a different dress from another religion, then we are less than that dog.”
– Radhanath Swami

#6

“Where there is no inner freedom, there is no life.”
– Radhanath Swami

#7

Caring for each other with patience, tolerance and humility is part of what it means to walk a spiritual path.
– Radhanath Swami

#8

“Man cannot be enlightened through any organization, creed, dogma, priest or ritual, nor through any philosophical knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through understanding the contents of his own mind, through observation, not through intellectual analysis or introspective dissection.”
– Radhanath Swami

#9

“You have too many gurus in this country. They have told you what to do, what to think, what to practice. They are the dictators.”
– Radhanath Swami

#10

“To the degree we have Love & Harmony in our heart, to that degree we can give it to others.”
– Radhanath Swami

#11

“Real self-confidence is not based on our achievements or our successes in this world but it is based on the fulfillment of who we are, what our purpose is, and what we represent to ourselves, to our families, and to the world around us. If a person has such self-confidence, then he can generate faith and confidence in others.”
– Radhanath Swami

#12

Quote about animal rights image

“Humanity evolves when we realise that animals have the same rights to the Earth as we do.”
– Radhanath Swami

#13

Sex could be a gift of God, but when it becomes an obsession, it plunders all intelligence and people are driven to abominable acts to satisfy their lust. When passion is frustrated, people lose all good sense.”
– Radhanath Swami

#14

“Suffering is sent to remind us to turn our thoughts towards God, who will give us solace.”
– Radhanath Swami

#15

“Religious and spiritual leaders should be held accountable for environmental activism, not only because they have access to large communities and can influence votes, but because service is integral to religious and spiritual life.”
– Radhanath Swami

#16

“When we forgive someone, we liberate ourselves from the poison of negativity that is within our own hearts.”
– Radhanath Swami

#17

Love is Everlasting Forgiveness.”
– Radhanath Swami

#18

“When one does not have wisdom, one behaves like a leaf of a ‘touch-me-not’ plant, which shrinks its leaves at the slightest touch of a drop of water. The drop of water is compared to calamities that come into our life. When one becomes like a ‘touch-me-not’ plant, one becomes sensitive to even small provocations. One starts whining at small things, shrinks when calamities come and blasts those who touch him.”
– Radhanath Swami

#19

Krishna tells Arjuna in Gita whether you win or lose that is not important, what is important is that you perform your duty with right attitude.”
– Radhanath Swami

#20

“The more you expect in return for what you’re doing, the more you feel loneliness and emptiness.”
– Radhanath Swami

#21

People Love Quote Image

“People don’t really love us for what we accomplish. People actually love us for our character and goodness.”
– Radhanath Swami

#22

“I just didn’t know where I fit in – I didn’t seem to fit in my parent’s generation. I didn’t seem to fit in my own generation. Little by little, this took me into a spiritual search for understanding; a search for meaning and fulfillment.”
– Radhanath Swami

#23

“Forgiveness is actually a beautiful and holistic experience for the heart.”
– Radhanath Swami

#24

“He who tries to understand God simply by logical arguments will not succeed. If one develops love for God by following his instructions, one can know the supreme absolute truth.”
– Radhanath Swami

#25

“The goal of life is to love God, and in order for us to love God, we have to love each other.”
– Radhanath Swami

#26

“When you learn to control your mind and your senses, then your mind and senses become peaceful. And in this peaceful state the true love of the soul can manifest.”
– Radhanath Swami

#27

“Do everything you have to do, but not with greed, not with ego, not with lust, not with envy; but with love, compassion, humility, and devotion.”
– Radhanath Swami

#28

“Love everyone, serve everyone, and feed everyone. Serve like Hanuman without selfishness and greed. This is the key to realizing God.”
– Radhanath Swami

#29

“Our inner depth should be as much as the ocean, so we are not fazed by the external praise or criticism. For that, we must truly do work that is meaningful to us, have love in our heart for others and help people. That is when we achieve inner depth.”
– Radhanath Swami

#30

Quote on Harmony Image

“When things are unified, they are beautiful. What makes music beautiful? Harmony. And What is harmony? Unity.”
– Radhanath Swami

#31

“Everyone is a child of God. God loves all of his children. If I wish to love God, I must learn to love those whom he loves.”
– Radhanath Swami

#32

“If we become overly attached to externals, we may forget their very purpose: to purify the heart”
– Radhanath Swami

#33

“What really impresses the hearts of people is not miraculous feats but genuine humility, integrity and a true sense of love achieved through service.”
– Radhanath Swami

#34

“Everything that takes place in our life is God revealing His miraculous, incredible mercy upon us.”
– Radhanath Swami

#35

“If you love God, you can’t hate anything or anyone. If the love one offers is met with hate, it doesn’t die, rather it manifests in the form of compassion. That is universal love. It is not just a sentiment. It cannot be manifested merely by a shift in mental disposition. It can only come from inner cleaning, an inner awakening.”
– Radhanath Swami

#36

“We cannot always change the circumstances; but we can always adjust our consciousness.”
– Radhanath Swami

#37

“Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer. Leopards, cobras, monkeys, rivers and trees; they all served as my teachers when I lived as a wanderer in the Himalayan foothills.”
– Radhanath Swami

#38

“If someone takes responsibility without force that is love.”
– Radhanath Swami

#39

“Religion is meant to teach us true spiritual human character. It is meant for self-transformation. It is meant to transform anxiety into peace, arrogance into humility, envy into compassion, to awaken the pure soul in man and his love for the Source, which is God.”
– Radhanath Swami

#40

Radhanath Swami Quote About God Image

“Pure love of God is our nature, but we are so much diverted, so much distracted by the externals that we’ve forgotten that it’s our essence.”
– Radhanath Swami

#41

“What I found particularly fascinating and satisfying about the Hindu tradition was its spirit of inclusiveness. In Sanatan Dharma, or what is commonly called Hinduism, I discovered the basic truths of all religions in a way that the oneness of God and religion is comprehensively understood.”
– Radhanath Swami

#42

“If we have love of God in our life, it really does not matter whether we don’t have anything or whether we have everything; we will be satisfied because of that love.”
– Radhanath Swami

#43

Real knowledge and education is not about storing masses of data in our brain; it means to have the wisdom to see every human being with equal vision.
– Radhanath Swami

#44

The essence of spiritual life is simply to use our free will properly.
– Radhanath Swami

#45

If our mind is in conflict, not balanced with our body and with the needs of the soul, then there is a fundamental disunity in our life. Only if we have unity within ourselves, we can create unity in the world around us. You can’t give something you don’t have, even if you have all good intentions.
– Radhanath Swami

#46

If we do the right thing with right intent, that is our success.
– Radhanath Swami

#47

In my path, three things are really important. One is associating with people who inspire us with their positive influence. The company we keep is very important. Number two is our spiritual practice. Putting aside sacred time every day to make that journey within, to tune into the frequency of our true nature and the love and the grace that is within us. Number three is to try living with ethical, moral and spiritual values, which culminates in unselfish service.
– Radhanath Swami

#48

Things can give pleasure to the mind and senses, but only love can give pleasure to the heart. And ultimately, that is what we are looking for.
– Radhanath Swami

#49

It is not the light that is needed in this world but the warmth because we will die out of cold but not out of darkness.
– Radhanath Swami

#50

Moon is like Soul. Clouds are like all the situations in our life, relationships, youth, etc. Wind is like the Time. Just like the wind moves the clouds, Time moves all the situations in our life. But the soul is always the same and not on the temporary situations. One who focuses on soul is a moon-like person.
– Radhanath Swami
