Lemurian Quartz Crystal Image

Lemurian quartz is the perfect repository for information about our planet and the Universe. Moreover, each crystal contains sacred messages and symbols that are represented in unique horizontal lines and grooves and abstract patterns that resembles the hieroglyphics of the ancient Egyptians.

In this article, I’ll share with you what Lemurian quartz really is, what are its benefits, and how to receive guidance from this magical crystal.

The Legend About Lemurian Crystals

It is believed that in fact, Lemurian crystals originated much earlier than the existence of the Lemurian civilization, although it left its light prints on them. These crystals grew in conditions when the bowels of the Earth were still clean – when there was no oil and poisonous ores inside them. These crystals served as repositories of Memory. People could fill these crystals with the memories of the most beautiful events, just as we fill albums with photographs. It was believed that there was a seed of the Creator in each of these crystals. Therefore every human had such a crystal that helped him to be connected with the Divine and brought inspiration and bliss.

Some people believe that these crystals sing because music lives in their Chiaroscuro. Many people who have psychic abilities claim that when working with these crystals, they can hear a wonderful baritone, performing an Aria, which later gives way to the magical music of distant stars and planets.

Properties

Working with such a crystal, you can touch the ancient memory of those times when people lived in love and harmony, acceptance and care for each other. These crystals activate the heart chakra, the third eye chakra, and the crown chakra, balancing the energy of all other energy centers and meridians.

Lemurian crystals affect all the subtle bodies of a man.

Lemurian quartz is a true energy healer! It solves a health problem on several levels simultaneously, using the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. This powerful crystal, like a laser, cuts off unhealthy and toxic energy, opening new channels of energy in the subtle and physical bodies.

Lemurian quartz is a stone of spiritual development, which reminds a person of his/her mission on the planet, activates ancient wisdom, memories of past lives, and healing abilities.

Lemurian crystals are suitable for:

Lemurian quartz can benefit almost everyone since most of us need the heart chakra opening and energy healing. And even if you feel like you don’t need healing, the feeling these crystals offer is just amazing. Some healers like to use these crystals to bring such experience to their clients.

How To Receive Information From Lemurian Quartz?

Lemurian crystals are always transparent, cone-shaped, with a fine top and with a large number of parallel horizontal hatches and signs on the faces. They may contain various inclusions of chlorite, hematite, etc.

In order to activate the information, you want to receive from the crystals perform the following simple actions.

Sit quietly in a meditation pose. Take the crystal in your right hand, tune in with the breath. Rub the thumb of your right hand up and down the grooves of the keyholes. Listen to your inner voice, your intuition.

Then point the top of the crystal at Anahata (Heart chakra). After a while point the top of the crystal to Ajna (Third Eye Chakra). Information may come in short bursts. You can ask questions. If you feel a strong pressure in the head, which is difficult to bear, stop the meditation.

Lemurian Quartz and Feng Shui

In Feng Shui, we use Lemurian quartz for supercharging a room with vibrations of hope and light. Therefore, many healers like to place this powerful crystal in their meditation rooms. However, if you don’t have a meditation room, you can place it in any other room. Every time you gaze at Lemurian crystal’s glittery luster, let its dreamy vibes encourage you to place your bets on uniting humanity and living in peace.

The Bottom Line

If you find yourself attracted to a Lemurian quartz crystal, it is probably a sign you need to recharge your energy and do an aura cleansing. Use the healing power of this crystal to clear blockages in your chakras and detox yourself of negative vibes. Very soon you will feel your spirit being flooded with the sweet afterglow that comes from aligning with the Divine cosmic energy.

38 Osho Quotes On Women

#1

“If you cannot respect women, you cannot respect anybody else — because it is from women you come. The woman mothered you for nine months, then she took every care, she loved you for years. And then again… you can’t live without a woman. She is your solace, your warmth. Life is very cold; the woman becomes your warmth. Life is very uninspiring; the woman becomes your inspiration. Life is very very arithmetical; the woman becomes your poetry. She gives grace to your life. She takes care of you. She loves you, she goes on loving you, tremendously, totally.”

Osho

#2

“Man has ruled over women for millennia. He has been given every opportunity and chance and woman has been repressed continuously, has been crippled. She has not been allowed to compete with man shoulder to shoulder in life. That’s why we don’t know how many Gautam Buddhas on the women’s side did not get the opportunity to blossom. We don’t know how many Albert Einsteins have simply been denied any possibility for growth. It is a very strange thing that even dimensions like poetry, music, dance are dominated by men. The greatest dancers in the world have been men, not women. In fact, women should have been ahead of any male dancer. But one needs opportunity. One needs education, one needs training. If you bar the whole of womankind from education, training, discipline, you are making the whole society and the whole world poor, unnecessarily poor.”

Osho

#3

Osho Quote About Women Image

“Every man should be respectful to women: they are your mothers, they are your beloveds. Every woman should be respectful towards men: they are your children, they are your lovers. There is no question of any conflict between man and woman: they are two sides of the same coin.”

Osho

#4

“If all over the world the woman is allowed freedom to grow to her potential, there will be many, many women enlightened; many, many women mystics, poets, painters. And they will enhance not only the woman’s part of the world – because the world is one – they will enhance the whole world. They will give man also new dimensions because their ways of seeing things are different. Man looks at things in one way; the woman looks from a different perspective. Life will become richer.

It is for the betterment of both man and woman that the woman should be given every freedom and equal opportunity for her individuality. Then there will be a sense of humor. And the woman can laugh more gracefully than man, she has every potential for it – but it is repressed, condemned, criticized. She has lived a life of such misery that you cannot hope that she will show some sense of humor.

But the day is not far away…then the whole earth will be full of laughter. Instead of talks about war, instead of politicians giving speeches all around the world, instead of the sermons of stupid priests who know nothing, it will be far better that every man and every woman is able to see the hilarious side of life and to enjoy it.”

Osho

#5

“Women have been loved, but not respected. And without respect the love is nothing but lust; you label it with a beautiful word, but deep down inside you it is always sex, always sex. Man has reduced woman and her spirituality to such a state that she has become only an object of sex. And if the American trend has to be followed — where everything has to be used once and thrown away — the ultimate consequence is coming closer: use the woman once and throw away. They are already doing it in a way.”

Osho

#6

“In 3000 years, 5000 wars have been fought — this is what the male mind has done. I am in support of a matriarchal system. I would like the power to go to women because basically they are non-aggressive; they are loving, they are compassionate. But it has nothing to do with biology really; even the male mind can become feminine. And the whole process of transforming the male mind is the art of meditation.”

Osho

#7

“Christianity destroyed thousands of wise women, burned them alive. Even the name “witch” – which means “a wise woman” and nothing else – became so condemnatory…and the same happened in the East. All the religions prohibited women, and I can see that the reason is a great fear that if women are allowed the same opportunity as is given to men, they will be far ahead in the experience of God. And that is against the ego of man.”

Osho

#8

“Millions of women hate their husbands for the simple reason that they feel used as if they are just machines for your sexual lust to be relieved so that you can have a good night’s sleep. No woman can ever respect you if she feels she is being used. Each being is an end unto himself. Never use a woman, never use a man, never use anybody. Nobody is a means for your purposes. Respect — love is a sharing, it is not using the other, it is not trying to snatch something from the other. On the contrary, it is giving wholeheartedly for no reason at all, just for the sheer joy of giving.”

Osho

#9

“Man has been beating women, repressing women, condemning women. And not knowing that condemning women, repressing women is making them inferior, half of humanity is deprived of raising its consciousness. And you are deprived because you could also have learned the art of moving upwards from half of the universe. You could also have moved on the same way, on the same path; hence I always say, the liberation of women is also the liberation of man. It is more the liberation of man than the liberation of women.”

Osho

#10

“I have accepted women for the first time on an equal basis to men. I am in favor of women’s liberation because I know that unless women are liberated, men will never be liberated. Their liberation is together because they are two sides of the same coin. Naturally many more women have come because for centuries they were denied, they were insulted, they were never accepted as equal to men. Naturally, more and more women will be coming – and only those men will be here who are ready to accept women as their equal. No male chauvinists can remain around me. It is a family of equal people, with equal dignity.”

Osho

#11

“Nobody bothers about the woman, what is her situation. In fact, women are very non-aggressive as far as sexuality is concerned. NO woman can rape a man, only a man can rape a woman. Man’s sexuality is aggressive, woman’s sexuality is receptive. Woman can live without sex far more easily than man, hence nuns are far more true than the monks — the monks are hypocrites. But the poor woman is condemned continuously. I would like to change this whole ugly tradition. The woman will be respected only when sex is also respected, remember it. The woman will be accepted only when sex is also accepted as natural. These popes, these shankaracharyas, these IMAMS, these so-called saints have created a very ugly situation. It has to be completely destroyed and a new beginning has to be made in which man and woman are no more separate, are no more thought separately, in which man and woman are considered equal because they are two aspects of the same sex, two sides of the same coin.”

Osho

#12

Quote About Respect Image

“If women had been respected in the past, humanity would not have been in such a mess as it is today – because women are half of humanity. Half of humanity has remained undignified, uneducated, deprived of all freedom, all movement. We have hampered, handicapped ourselves. We have destroyed half of ourselves, and if we are in misery then who is to be blamed?”

Osho

#13

“A woman always wants to belong. That has nothing to do with any particular individual; it is something to do with the very nature of womanhood. It is part of the feminine mind to lean to somebody, to possess and to be possessed. So it is not a question of somebody being like that. All women, more or less, are like that. That is their intrinsic quality. And when a woman loses that quality, she loses something of her womanhood. Then she is not worth much. She is almost like a man; she has a male mind. You will not feel that softness, that fragileness that gives grace and beauty to a woman.”

Osho

#14

“I am all in favor of women’s liberation – but not the way the women’s liberation movement is going. It is taking a reactionary attitude, it is not a real revolution. It is trying to imitate man. And remember, imitation never makes you equal; imitation at the most will make you a carbon copy – but the original is original.”

Osho

#15

“All religions of the world are male-oriented and are somehow afraid of women. The greatest fear is that the women can distract their attention from God. And in fact, there is no God, just their idea that any beautiful woman will be able to distract… They are right!”

Osho

#16

“Almost all the religions have denied women the possibility of entering into paradise from the body of a woman. She can be virtuous. Her husband is her god. She should serve the husband with total commitment and devotion. This is the only religion as far as the woman is concerned. This will bring her into the body of a man in her next life, and then the doors open. Then she can strive for spiritual heights. Then she can become an enlightened master.

There are religions which don’t allow women to read the religious scriptures. There are religions which don’t allow the women to enter their temples. The woman has been enslaved. She has been reduced into producing children, taking care of them her whole life. She has not to be respected as a human being. She is just a reproductive mechanism.”

Osho

#17

“Women live longer than men, almost five years more; that’s why you see so many widows in the world. And women are more resistant to illness, disease. Women are more tolerant, more accepting. From where comes this strength? — it comes from their receptivity.”

Osho

#18

“Most of the differences between men and women are because of thousands of years of conditioning. They are not fundamental to nature, but there are a few differences which give them unique beauty, individuality. Those differences can be counted very easily.

One is that the woman is capable of producing life; man is not. In that way he is inferior, and that inferiority has played a great role in the domination of women by men. The inferiority complex works in this way: it pretends to be superior – to deceive oneself and to deceive the whole world. So man down the ages has been destroying the woman’s genius, talents, capacities, so that he can prove himself superior – to himself and to the world.

Because the woman gives birth, for nine months or more she remains absolutely vulnerable, dependent on man. Men have exploited this in a very ugly way. And that is a physiological difference; it makes no difference at all.

The psychology of the woman is corrupted by man telling her things which are not true, making her a slave to man, reducing her to a secondary citizen of the world. And the reason for that was that he is muscularly more powerful. But the muscular power is part of animality. If that is going to decide the superiority, then any animal is more muscular than a man.”

Osho

#19

“Women are more patient, more tolerant than men. Men are very impatient and very intolerant. Women are less violent than men. Women don’t commit murders; it is the man who commits murders, who wages crusades, who is always getting ready for war, who invents all kinds of deadly weapons — atomic bombs, nuclear weapons. The woman is completely out of this whole game of death.”

Osho

#20

“A woman is more capable of love than a man is. A man’s love is more or less a physical necessity; a woman’s love is not. It is something greater and higher; it is a spiritual experience. That’s why the woman is monogamous and man is polygamous. The man would like to have all the world’s women, and still he would not be satisfied. His discontent is infinite.

The woman can be satisfied with one love, utterly fulfilled, because she does not look at the body of the man, she looks at his innermost qualities. She does not fall in love with a man who has a beautiful muscular body, she falls in love with a man who has charisma – something indefinable, but immensely attractive – who has a mystery to be explored. She wants her man not to be just a man, but an adventure in discovering consciousness.”

Osho

#21

“Women cannot be competitive: they cannot fight, they cannot struggle. And if you find a woman somewhere who struggles and fights, who is competitive, then something of womanhood is missing in her. Physically she may be a woman, psychologically she is a man.”

Osho

#22

“The man is very weak as far as sexuality is concerned; he can have only one orgasm. The woman is infinitely superior; she can have multiple orgasms. And this has been one of the most troublesome matters. The man’s orgasm is local, confined to his genitals. The woman’s orgasm is total, not confined to the genitals. Her whole body is sexual, and she can have a beautiful orgasmic experience a thousandfold bigger, deeper, more enriching, more nourishing than a man can have.

But the tragedy is that her whole body has to be aroused, and the man is not interested in it, he has never been interested in it. He has used the woman as a sex machine just to relieve his own sexual tensions. Within seconds he is finished. And by the time he is finished, the woman has not even begun.”

Osho

#23

Quote About Love And Freedom Image

“Men and women should not be in a contract, like marriage. They should be in love — but they should retain their freedom. They don’t owe anything to each other.”

Osho

#24

“While you are making love with the man on top of the woman…it is known as the missionary posture. The East became aware of this ugliness that the man was heavier, taller and more muscular; he was crushing a delicate being. In the East, the way has always been just the opposite: the woman on top. Crushed under the weight of the man, the woman has no mobility. Only the man moves, so he comes to orgasm within seconds and the woman is simply in tears. She has been a partner, but she was not involved in it. She has been used.

When the woman is on top she has more mobility, the man has less mobility, and that will bring their orgasms closer to each other. And when both go into orgasmic experience, it is something of the other world. It is the first glimpse of samadhi; it is the first glimpse that man is not the body. He forgets the body, he forgets the world. Both the man and the woman move into a new dimension they have never explored.

The woman has the capacity for multiple orgasms, so the man has to be as slow as possible. But the reality is, he is in such a hurry in everything that he destroys the whole relationship. He should be very relaxed so that the woman can have multiple orgasms. His orgasm should come at the end when the woman’s orgasm has reached to the peak. It is a simple question of understanding.”

Osho

#25

“Women have a totally different kind of being. Her whole body needs love. It is not sexuality. Her whole body is orgasmic. That’s why there is tremendous trouble. Man comes to orgasm quickly — within two minutes — and the woman has not even started. The woman takes a little time. Her whole body has to become ready, ecstatic. Her whole body has to join the dance. Only then can she feel orgasmic joy. So she is not actually interested in the prick. She is more interested in hugging, in being close to you, in the warmth of your body. She wants to be surrounded by your love, she wants to surround you with her love.”

Osho

#26

“A woman is more centered than a man… She is more serene, more silent, more patient is capable of waiting. Perhaps because of these qualities, she has more resistance to diseases and she lives longer than a man. Because of her serenity, her, she can fulfill a man’s life immensely. She can surround man’s life in a very soothing, cozy atmosphere.

But the man is afraid – he does not want to be surrounded by the woman, he does not want to let her create a cozy warmth around him. He is afraid because that way he will become dependent. So for centuries, he has been keeping her at a distance. And he is afraid because he knows deep down that the woman is more than he is. She can give birth to life. Nature has chosen her to reproduce, not man.”

Osho

#27

Love should be the only way for men and women to live together. No other ritual is needed.”

Osho

#28

“Man has dominated women for centuries and forced the idea on them that they are the weaker sex, that they cannot do anything that man can do. They can do small homely things – that is their world. I want to destroy that idea completely…

And this is a strange way: to keep half of humanity in a downtrodden state. How much is the loss? Half of humanity means that women if they were accepted as equal, would have produced a Dostoevsky, a Turgenev, a Chekhov, a Gorky, a van Gogh, a Picasso, a Nijinsky. They may have proved a Buddha, a Jesus. Half of humanity! It is a vast ocean to whom you have denied all possibilities of creation, expression. And you have behaved with women as if they are cattle, not human beings.”

Osho

#29

Osho Quote About Women Liberation Image

“Women’s liberation is automatically men’s liberation. Women’s slavery is automatically men’s slavery. They go together.”

Osho

#30

“We say: ‘Boys will be boys.’ Men have created this saying because they think that a man will not be satisfied with one woman, that a man wants many women, but that a woman will be satisfied with only one man. These are just male tricks. A woman should be satisfied with one man – and that one is you! But you? – how can you be satisfied with one? You are a man! You think there should be more freedom for a man…

Your wife has as much right to her freedom as you demand for yourself. And if you find that, no, it is not right that your wife becomes interested in other men, then you’re being interested in other women is also not right. What you expect of your wife you should become, you should act in the same way. Only then do you have any right.”

Osho

#31

“Women all over the world are trying in every possible way to behave like men. They are wearing men’s clothes, smoking cigarettes like men, and whatsoever they can do. They use language like men have always used it, becoming arrogant, aggressive, losing the feminine quality. See the women of the liberation movement: they have lost something — something soft, feminine, receptive, passive, is no more there.”

Osho

#32

“Man has been taught to be just a man: never to show any feminine traits, never to show any softness of the heart, never to show any receptivity, always be aggressive. Man has been taught never to cry, never weep – because tears are feminine.

Women have been taught never to be in any way like the male: never to show aggression, never show expression, to always remain passive, receptive. This is against reality, and this has crippled both.

In a better world, with better understanding, a man will be both, a woman will be both – because sometimes a man needs to be a woman. There are moments when he needs to be soft – tender moments, love-moments. And there are moments when a woman needs to be expressive and aggressive – in anger, in defense, in rebellion. If a woman is simply passive, then she will turn into a slave automatically. A passive woman is bound to become a slave – that’s what happened down the ages. And an aggressive man, emphatically aggressive and never tender, is bound to create wars, neurosis in the world, violence.”

Osho

#33

“A man is not necessarily masculine, a woman is not necessarily feminine. A woman can be masculine, for example, Joan of Are or, in India, Laxmibhai. These women were warriors, great soldiers; they were not feminine at all. Biologically, of course, they were feminine, their bodies were those of women, but their very souls were those of men. They have to be counted as masculine. And there have been men — poets, dancers, musicians, singers, painters — who were very feminine. So soft, so round was their being that psychologically they were women. They may have been able to reproduce children, they may have been able to become fathers and husbands, but deep down they were not masculine; their psychology can only be called feminine.”

Osho

#34

“The first thing to be understood: men and women are different; not only different, but opposites. But they are not unequal, they are equal. There is difference, there is oppositeness, there is a polarity, but they are not unequal, they are equal. Two opposites are always equal, otherwise, they cannot oppose each other.

The second thing to be understood: The female body exists for a totally different purpose – biologically, physiologically, chemically. It has a different function to fulfill than the male body. And it is so different from the male body that unless you penetrate into the deeper layers of biology you will not be able to understand the difference. They exist as if in two worlds apart. The woman carries a womb.

The very word ‘woman’ comes from ‘man with a womb’. And the womb is so important – nothing is more important than the womb, because a new life has to come through it. The whole moving phenomenon of life passes through it; it is the very gate into this world. And because of the womb, the woman has to be receptive, she cannot be aggressive. The womb cannot be aggressive; it has to receive, it has to be an opening, it has to invite the unknown. The womb has to be a host; the man will be the guest.

Because of the womb being a central phenomenon in the feminine body, the whole psychology of woman differs. She is non-aggressive, non-inquiring, non-questioning, non-doubting, because all those things are part of aggression. The man doubts, he inquires, he goes in search; she waits. The man will come in search of her. She will not take the initiative, she simply waits – and she can wait infinitely.“

Osho

#35

“Women have to learn karate, aikido, judo — they have to learn all sorts of subtle techniques — which are feminine techniques but which can make women tremendously strong. Women are not as tall as men, they are not as hard as men, but there is no need — there are softer and tremendously powerful ways.”

Osho

#36

“The feminine mind cannot have a sense of time. It is the male, aggressive mind who is time-worried, time-conscious. The feminine is not in any hurry. Really, there is nowhere to reach. That’s why women cannot become great leaders, great scientists, great warriors. Joan of Arc or Laxmi Bai: they are only feminine in body; the mind is not feminine at all. It is masculine. For the feminine mind there is no goal, and our world is man-oriented. So women cannot be really great in a man-oriented world, because greatness is related to the goal. Some goal has to be achieved; then you become great — and the feminine mind is not after any goal. Here and now she is happy. Here and now she is unhappy. That’s why the feminine curiosity is never for the far-away; it is always about the neighborhood. She is not interested in what is happening in Vietnam. She is interested in what is happening in the other house — the intimate, the here. Time doesn’t exist. There is no hurry.”

Osho

#37

“A woman has perfect qualities to become a disciple. Surrender is easy for her. It is natural, part of the feminine being. Surrender is easy; surrender comes easily. A woman becomes a good disciple. And you will always find: wherever you will find four disciples, three will be women. This will be the proportion all over the world. Mahavir had forty thousand sannyasins — thirty thousand were women. The same proportion with Buddha. You go in any church, any temple and just count — you will always find the proportion three to one. In fact, all the religions are supported, fed, by women; but they are disciples.”

Osho

#38

“I would like the woman to become as feminine as possible, only then can she flower. And the man needs to be as masculine as possible, only then can he flower. When they are polar opposites, a great attraction, a great magnetism, arises between them. And when they come close, when they meet in intimacy, they bring two different worlds, two different dimensions, two different richnesses, and the meeting is a tremendous blessing, a benediction. We can make a better world together. Men and women should be really half-and-half of a whole. There are qualities which men have and women do not have; there are qualities which women have and men do not have. Both together, the human being will be richer in every possible way.”

Walking Meditation: How To Perform It Properly And Why?

Published

on

Walking meditation image

In this article, I want to share the practical aspects of walking meditation. I will share with you how, where and when the practice of walking meditation is the most effective. In this article, you will find practical recommendations of walking meditation, as well as tips on how to form a quality mind that will lead to concentration, insight, and wisdom through physical activity in walking meditation.

Walking Meditation And Buddha

Buddha emphasized that mindfulness can be developed in four basic meditation postures: standing, sitting, lying, and walking. He encouraged us to be aware of these postures in order to form a clear awareness and remembrance of what we were doing while in one position or another.

The ancient Bodhi tree grows in the Indian village of Bodh Gaya. According to legend, it was under that tree that the Buddha attained enlightenment. Nearby you can see a path length of 17 steps. The Buddha used that path for his walking meditations.

In his teachings, the Buddha has repeatedly said that it is important to develop clarity of consciousness constantly, no matter what position your body is in: you sit or stand, lie or even walk – for the practice of meditation, you can and should use any moment. The lives of monks and nuns of the Buddha’s time show that many of them reached different levels of spiritual realization through meditation while walking.

Find Your Own Way

Some people find that they are particularly drawn to walking meditation because they find it easier and more natural than sitting meditation. When they sit down, they feel too lethargic or tense or easily get distracted. Their minds do not calm down. If the same thing happens in your case – do not persist. Try something else, like changing your posture. Do something different. Experiment with standing meditation or try walking meditation. This new posture during meditation can give you other skillful means of applying the mind. All four postures of meditation are simple techniques that you can use for the development and training of your consciousness.

Try and develop meditation while walking and you will be able to see its benefits.

In the forest meditation tradition of northeastern Thailand, monks put a special emphasis on walking meditations. Monks spend many hours walking to develop concentration. Sometimes ten or fifteen hours a day!

Ajahn Singtong spent so much time meditating while walking that he trampled a furrow in the meditation path. There was a hollow in the sandy path, for he walked many hours a day – sometimes fifteen or more!

The Five Benefits Of Walking Meditation

Walking meditation benefits image

Buddha spoke of the five benefits of walking meditation. If you take them in the order in which they are considered in the suttas, it turns out that walking meditation:

  • develops endurance when taking long walks;
  • is good for diligence;
  • good for health;
  • it is good for digestion;
  • promotes concentration that lasts for a long time.

Now let’s take a closer look at walking meditation benefits!

#1 Development of endurance

The first benefit of walking meditation is that it promotes endurance over long walking distances. This was especially important in Buddha’s time when most people traveled on foot. Buddha himself often traveled, moving from place to place. He, therefore, advised walking meditation as a method of developing physical fitness and endurance over long walking distances.

The forest monks still roam. They take the Cup, the robes, and wander in search of secluded places to meditate. As a preparation for the journey, they are constantly increasing the amount of meditation when walking, to develop, among other things, physical fitness and endurance. They increase the amount of such meditation to five or six hours a day.

#2 Development of diligence

During sitting meditation, many meditators are faced with the fact that every time they drown in calm states, they may become too “calm” and unconscious, which leads to sleep or even snoring. Time passes quickly in such a meditation, but they do not have any clarity or vigilance, although it feels peaceful. Without mindfulness and alertness, meditation can become dull.

If you are one of those who can fall asleep during meditation then you should consider practicing walking meditation. Walking back and forth, meditating, will help you to overcome drowsiness. You will not be able to fall asleep while you are walking!

#3 It’s Good for your health

Buddha said that walking meditation promotes good health. This is the third benefit.

We all know that walking is considered a good form of physical exercise. When we practice meditation while walking we are actually performing a physical and mental exercise. So walking can be good exercise and a way to develop the mind. But in order to get such benefits, it is necessary to bring awareness into the walking process, instead of just walking and letting the mind wander in thoughts and emotions.

#4 It’s good for digestion

The fourth benefit of walking meditation is that it is good for digestion. This is especially important for monks who eat just once a day. After eating, the blood rushes to the stomach and its outflow from the brain occurs. Therefore, you feel drowsy.

The forest monks emphasize that walking meditation should be practiced for several hours after eating, as walking back and forth promotes digestion.

When you have had a hearty lunch, instead of going to sleep, it is better to meditate for an hour while walking. This will help physical health and give a chance to develop the mind.

#5 Promotes prolonged concentration

The fifth advantage of walking meditation is that the concentration resulting from such meditation lasts for a long time.

When we practice sitting meditation, it is very easy to maintain the posture. All we need to do is just close our eyes and reject the stimuli that come through sight. We don’t bother with any bodily movements. Therefore, in comparison to walking meditation, sitting meditation is a much more refined posture in terms of the involved activity.

When we walk, we get a lot of sensory information. We look where we are going, so we get visual information, and we also get information because of body movement. Therefore, if we can focus the mind while walking and receiving all this sensory information, then when we change this posture to a more refined one, the concentration will be easier to hold.

In other words, when we sit down, the power of the mind and the power of this concentration easily flow into this refined posture. So, if you develop concentration only in a sitting position, when you get up and begin to perform bodily movements, such as walking, it is more difficult to maintain this state of concentration. This is because you go from the subtle to more physical. Therefore, walking meditation can help to develop strength and clarity of mind and concentration, which can make other, less active, meditation poses even better.

Preparation For Walking Meditation

Suitable Place

walking path image

Remember that walking is a stimulating posture, and initially, the mind will often wander. Beginners are best to start with shorter tracks. Fifteen steps would be enough. If you are going to do it outside, then find a secluded place where you will not be distracted and disturbed.

It would be great to find a track that is a little hidden. If you walk in an open space where there is a beautiful view, it can distract you – since your mind would be thinking about the view. The hidden territory is especially preferable for those who think too much. This will help you to calm your mind. If the path is hidden, it will help to direct the mind inward and calm down. Oppositely, if the path is open and provides a view then your mind will be directed outward which doesn’t match to meditation purposes.

Mind And Body Preparation

Once you have found a suitable place, stand at the beginning of the track. Straighten up. Place your right hand on your left palm in front of you. Do not walk with your hands folded behind your back because this posture represents a simple walk but not meditation!

The main purpose of walking meditation is to develop Samadhi which requires diligence. The Pali word “Samadhi” means focusing the mind, bringing it into a state of unidirectionality through the gradual development of the stages of awareness and concentration. To focus the mind, one must be diligent and determined.

First of all, it requires a certain degree of physical and mental concentration. You start by folding your hands in front of you. The concentration of the body promotes the concentration of the mind.

Thus, to establish a concentration of the body, one should stand up, establish awareness and mindfulness in relation to the body. Then you have to raise your hands together in Ajali (a gesture of respect). Close your eyes and focus your mind on the qualities of Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha.

After that, put your hands in front of you and establish a determination in your mind in terms of how much you are going to walk: half an hour, an hour or more. Go strictly as much as you decide. So you will train your mind in this initial stage of meditation with zeal, inspiration, and faith.

It is important to remember to look down (about 5 feet ahead of you) while performing walking meditation. Don’t look around. Maintain awareness on the sensation of your feet touching the ground. In this way, you will develop a more refined awareness, a clear knowledge of walking while performing walking meditation.

Mindfulness To Walking Posture

walking posture image

In this technique, while walking, you direct all your attention to your feet, to the sensations and feelings as they arise and disappear. Be aware of this feeling with your whole foot. As the foot rises again, note this new sensation in your mind. When you lift each foot and step forward, concentrate on the sensations that occur. With each new step, new sensations will be experienced, and the old ones will cease. All this should be realized. With each step a new sensation is experienced – this sensation arises and disappears; arises and disappears again.

In this method we direct attention to the sensation of walking itself as each step is taken. We should notice what type of sensations and feelings arises on your feet.

When we stand, we experience a sensation, a feeling, a contact with the ground. This contact can produce pain, heat, or other sensations. We direct our conscious attention to these sensations, fully cognizing them. When we lift the foot to take a step, the sensation changes as soon as the foot lifts off the ground. As you walk the feeling is constantly changing, new ones appear. We consciously note this emergence and disappearance of sensations as the foot lifts off the ground and touches it again. Thus, we keep full attention simply on the sensations arising when walking.

Have you ever paid attention to the sensations in the foot while walking?

They happen every time we walk, but usually, in life, we don’t notice these subtle things. When we walk, our mind wanders somewhere. Walking meditation is a way to simplify what we do when we do it. We affirm the mind in the here and now. We simplify everything, we calm the mind by simply knowing the emergence and disappearance of sensations.

How fast are you walking?

It is advised walking naturally, not too fast, not too slow. If you walk fast, you may find it very difficult to focus on the feelings that arise and fade. Maybe you need to slow down a bit. On the other hand, some people might be better off speeding up. Everyone is different. You need to find your own pace that would suit you. At first, you can walk slowly, and gradually move to a natural pace of walking.

If your awareness is weak (that is, your mind often wanders), walk very slowly until you can stay in the present moment with each step. Start by establishing awareness at the beginning of the track. When you get to the middle, ask yourself, ” Where is my mind? Does it know the sensation in my feet? Do I feel a touch here and now, in the present moment?”. If the mind has run away, bring it back to the sensation in the foot and continue walking.

When you reach the end, slowly turn around, re-establish awareness. Where is the mind? Does it know the sensation in your feet? As a rule, the mind rushes in search of thoughts of vanity, fear, happiness, sadness, anxiety, doubt, pleasure, disappointment, and so on. It wanders in a multitude of all the thoughts that can arise.

Awareness

awareness image

If awareness of the object of meditation is absent, then first set it again, and then start walking back. Establish the mind again on the simple knowledge of the act of walking, and then begin to walk back to the other end of the path. When you reach the middle, note: “I am in the middle of the path”. Then, when you reach the end of the track, note: “Where is the mind?”. This is how you go back and forth, being aware of the arising and disappearing sensations. As you walk, constantly reset your awareness, bringing the mind back, directing it inward, becoming aware, seeing sensations at every moment of their occurrence and disappearance.

As we maintain awareness of the sensations and feelings in our feet, we will notice that the mind has become less distracted. The mind will be less and less inclined to external things happening around us. We will become calmer. The mind will calm down as it is established.

When your mind calms down, you will want the movements to stop. Stop, stand still, let the mind experience this state of peace and quiet. If the mind has become very refined while walking, you may find that it is simply impossible to continue walking. Walking implies a willful decision to walk, and your mind is too focused on the object of meditation. Stop on the path and continue your meditation in a standing position. Meditation involves working with the mind, not with posture. A physical posture is simply a convenient tool that serves for perfecting the mind work.

Concentration And Calm

Concentration and calm go hand in hand with mindfulness. When the mind is calm in meditation, there will be a feeling of joy, delight, and bliss due to this calmness. The Buddha said that the bliss of peace is the greatest happiness and the concentrated mind experiences this peace.

This peace can be experienced in this very life. By developing the walking meditation practice we can integrate it into everyday life. For example, when we go to the store, from room to room, etc. we can use this active movement as meditation. We can be conscious of just the fact that we are going somewhere and the process of walking can be our walking meditation. When we are practicing walking meditation in our everyday life our minds become silent and calm. This is the way to develop concentration and peace in everyday life.

From Sitting Meditation To Walking Meditation

Bali meditation image

If during sitting meditation the mind becomes peaceful with the help of some object of meditation, then use the same object for your walking meditation.

However, in the case of some subtle objects of meditation, such as breathing, the mind must first acquire some degree of stability and calmness. If it is not calm yet, but you start walking, focusing on the breath, then it will be very difficult for you to perform a walking meditation, because the breath is a very subtle object. Therefore, it is better, to begin with, a coarser object – for example, with sensations and feelings arising in the feet.

There are many different objects of meditation that will help to move well from sitting to walking. For example, kindness, compassion, equanimity, etc. As you walk back and forth, develop the broadest thoughts based on kindness: “May all beings be happy. May all beings be at peace. May all beings be free from suffering.” You can use walking in addition to sitting meditation, developing the practice on the same object, but in a different position.

Mantras

If during walking meditation you notice that you are falling into drowsiness, then you need to cheer up the mind, not calm it down. Use the mantra to make it more focused and alert. Quietly repeat the mantra to yourself. If the mind is still wandering, start saying the mantra very quickly, and start walking more quickly. As you walk, repeat the mantra. Thus, the mind will be able to focus quickly.

The Bottom Line

When you decide to perform walking meditation you need to remember that what matters is not how many hours we spent on meditation, but how good it was. If your mind wandered while walking back and forth, you were not meditating. It is the quality of the mind that matters, not the amount of meditation we do.

Every aspect of our lives is an opportunity for meditation. Meditation is not just sitting on a pillow. All the processes of life are opportunities for us to explore reality. We make an effort to know things as they really are, that is, to know that they arise and disappear.

In the forest tradition, when a meditation teacher comes to a monastery, almost the first place he goes is to check the monastic meditation paths to see how many footprints there are. If the paths are well-trodden, it is considered a sign of a good monastery. Let your spiritual path always be well-trodden!

How To Practice the Prosperity Mantra?

Here are the instructions you need to follow if you want this mantra to work.

1.Write down on a piece of paper the money code: “7753191 x 77”.

2. Say the prosperity mantra daily (“seven seven five three one nine one”) 77 times for 77 days.

3. After 77 days of daily practice bury the piece of paper in a pot of soil, saying three times:

“The power of the earth, help the fulfillment of my desires” (3 times).

4. Plant in this pot the seeds of some plant (for example, wheat grains). During watering for 3 days, say:

“Water and earth, revive the seeds” (3 times).

5. Then within 3 days, take out the pot (you can take it to your backyard or simply open the window) with the words:

“Air and light, bring blooming to my wealth” (3 times).

6. When the sprout appears, light a candle and say 3 times:

“Fire burn the candle and destroy my poverty.
Let the sprout grow and reveal my wealth.
Let me prosper, grow my wealth and attract money.”

Don’t extinguish the candle. It should burn out completely.

Thus, you connect the piece of paper with the Prosperity code with the four elements: EARTH, WATER, AIR, and FIRE.

As the plant grows and the mantra is repeated, material wealth will increase.

Important Guidelines:

  • Start the prosperity mantra practice on the New Moon.
  • The pronunciation of numbers should be accurate and clear.

  • During the practice, abstract from the outside world and think about what you need (for example, how much money you need and for what).
  • Believe that everything will work out!

If you find it difficult to fulfill all of the above conditions, but urgently need money, then try the following:

  1. Write down the prosperity mantra “7753191” on a piece of paper and carry it in your wallet.
