Osho Kundalini Meditation: 4 Steps To Cure Emotional Blocks

Published

Osho Kundalini meditation image

Kundalini meditation is the process of cleansing the subconscious mind of impurities. It acts as an energy shower that washes away negativity, stress, anxiety, and tiredness accumulated during the day. And it charges you with fresh positive energy, lightness, and peace. The Kundalini meditation that I’m going to talk about in this article, is one of the most powerful and effective techniques developed by Osho.

Kundalini Meditation Benefits

If you’re wondering what’s so special in Kundalini meditation and if you should practice it, check out its benefits:

  1. It helps to get rid of toxic thoughts. Kundalini meditation helps to let go of anger, resentment and accept yourself as you are.
  2. This meditation creates positive habits. As you may know, our brains are made up of 80 billion nerve cells. They’re connected to each other. If you are overtaken today on the road, and you are upset, then tomorrow in the same situation you will be upset again. This creates stable connections between groups of neurons. Through these channels, neurons trigger neurotransmitters. When you are overtaken again, the lazy brain commands the neurotransmitters to “get upset.” And you’re upset. That’s how habits get stronger. But when you practice meditation regularly your brain receives only positive information and you have only positive thoughts. And as you remember, our positive thoughts create our positive reality!
  3. At the end of the stressful day, Kundalini meditation helps to remove tension and fatigue. Instead of blocking emotions you harmoniously reveal them and let them go.

Side Effects

According to Osho himself, the Kundalini meditation is a dynamic meditation which may lead you to a deep catharsis (translated from Greek – purification, through the experience of a strong emotional shock).

Catharsis, in turn, can cause various reactions in the body: pain, numbness, nausea, the desire to scratch, sneeze, or all of this together. Dynamic meditation changes the whole body, creates chaos, and increases energy movement. This meditation opens up all the emotions that you were blocking without expression. These emotions can be expressed through tears or laughter.

It is important to remain in observation, not to itch and not to sneeze. Allow the pain to be and disappear, the tears to flow, the laughter to get released, but do not allow all this to capture your consciousness. Be neutral and observe all the processes at “the here and now” moment.

What Is Kundalini?

Kundalini awakening symptoms image

Before you start practicing this powerful meditation you should clearly understand what Kundalini is.

Kundalini is a form of biological energy dormant in the human body. The Kundalini energy is present in the whole body but is concentrated mainly in the lower part of the spine, that is, in the genital area, transmitting vital energy to the offspring. This “snake energy” can be woken up, and through the spine and chakras transferred to the brain.

Kundalini meditation awakens this powerful energy. When Kundalini awakens, the energy rises up the spine, reaches the top of your head and, figuratively speaking, connects you with the cosmos. It is often compared to a snake that crawls along the spinal column, skirting it along the entire length. In the dormant state, it nourishes the body with energy and in the awakened state, it fills the body with it.

The Basis Of Kundalini Meditation

Osho called Kundalini meditation “the shaking meditation.”

Since ancient times, life has become more complicated. People have learned to create cities, grow food, live longer. We made life easier with technology, but there was a new problem. We, modern humans, don’t know how to relax without alcohol, drugs, pills, and smoking. Kundalini meditation solves this problem. Full of shaking and chaotic movements, it helps to literally relieve tension and accumulated problems.

Osho advises to just allow the shaking to be, not to focus on it or trying to control it. It is enough to help the body to relax hands and feet and not to strain.

Osho said that shaking is so important because when you’re shaking your shaking off the inner hardness, problems, tension, anxiety, and any negative emotions you’ve been blocking.

Instruction

kundalini mantra image

Kundalini Meditation consists of four stages. The duration of meditation is 60 minutes, each part lasts 15 minutes. The best time to practice is in the evening.

The interval of 15 minutes is not chosen by chance. Studying the works of Western psychologists and psychotherapists, Osho noticed that a person focuses on 15 minutes of activity. Further attention is scattered. Then Osho decided to take the interval of 15 minutes as a unit. It makes the practice easier, especially for beginners.

For doing this, you can set an automatic timer before meditation with 4 intervals of 15 minutes.

Osho created special music for Kundalini meditation, which many practitioners still like to use. Try meditating with or without music. Beginners are advised to start with music, it helps to concentrate on the practice.

Now let’s take a closer look at each stage.

Stage 1

Shaking in the first stage helps to remove the inner blocks.

Turn on the music, make sure no one bothers you. In a standing position start shaking. Let your body shake: arms, legs, neck, head, whole body. Your whole body should feel the movement and energy. Don’t think about how you look, it doesn’t matter. There are only you and your body movements. There are no right and wrong movements. The way the body moves is the right state. Eyes can be open or closed. It’s completely up to you.


Let the shaking be, don’t try to force it or control it. Stand still, feel the approach, and when Your body begins to tremble, help it, but don’t force it. Enjoy the freedom and strength of your body.

Stage 2

Dance as you wish. Smooth or sharp, fast or slow, it doesn’t matter. Let your body do whatever it wants. The main thing is that you feel good. Relax and let the dance be.

Stage 3

Stop. Close your eyes and don’t move. You can sit or stand as you like. Keep your back straight, so as not to create obstacles for the Kundalini energy. Even if you don’t feel like it is running down your spine, it’s ok. Everything comes with practice. Give yourself time.

Tighten the abdominal muscles, feel the elastic force of your body. Because you are not moving, the mind will start a conversation. Don’t worry, it’s ok. Watch your thoughts, but don’t dive into emotions. You are an observer, a witness. Your only task at this stage is to watch what is happening, but not to think about it.

At that moment the mind does not understand what is happening. Usually, you obediently play the mind’s games, getting involved in every thought that the mind has planted. Now you are not taking the proposed “toy” (thought) that your mind gives you, you are not playing with it but just looking at it.

Stage 4

Lie down on the floor, do not open your eyes and do not move. Keep watching your thoughts.

Over the past hour, you have tuned in to a deep practice. As musicians tune instruments before playing, so you have tuned your body. You dropped the voltage, then calmed down, came into the position of the observer.

Stand up with your eyes closed and stand for 10-15 minutes. Feel the silence. Feel your power.

The Bottom Line

If the energy of Kundalini has not passed through the spine, it’s okay. Practice this meditation for 3-4 weeks every day to bring the release of energy closer. We cannot know when the Kundalini energy will wake up. If you want the Kundalini awakening so badly that you even get upset after the meditation that nothing has happened, then nothing will happen. Don’t be attached to the result. Just focus on the process and enjoy it!

Crystal Meditation For Filling Yourself With Abundance Energy

Published

on

Crystal meditation image

This Crystal meditation is a very powerful tool that I received from my spiritual teacher a long time ago. First of all, this meditation helps to purify your aura from the negative information accumulated during your life. And secondary, it fills up your aura with pure abundance energy. The key is to make your aura radiate abundance energy so that it can attract abundance and prosperity from the material world. The inner abundance attracts outer abundance but it never happens in reverse! So let’s focus on our inner light and inner abundance and practice this wonderful crystal meditation at least once a month and watch what miracles the Universe has already prepared for us!

Instructions For Your Crystal Meditation

1. Buy a beautiful crystal.

This crystal will symbolize the embodiment of your dreams.

For example:

  • green and yellow crystals symbolize money;
  • blue crystal symbolizes the fulfillment of your dreams and desires;
  • purple crystal symbolizes spiritual growth;
  • white crystal can symbolize all of the above.

Crystals should be cleansed in sea salt water and fumigated with incense. Only after that, it can be your assistant on your beautiful journey.

2. Put the crystal in front of your eyes.

Use the ray of light so that the crystal glows. It can be sunlight or electric light. Let your crystal become a symbol of the embodiment of all your desires and dreams for you.

3. Take three deep breaths.

Direct your unfocused view into the center of the crystal. Watch yourself, watch the life of the crystal. Feel how calm and pure the vibrations of your crystal are.

4. Try to mentally get inside the crystal.

Imagine that you have become small and are in the center of the crystal. Mentally ask the crystal energy to surround you, protect you, cleanse your aura and create a powerful shield of good luck, happiness and wealth around you. Feel how happy, lucky and wealthy you are. Feel confident that you will always be well.

5. Mentally exit from the crystal.

Imagine, that you place the crystal in three basic energy centers: Lower, Middle and Upper Dantian. These energy centers are located just below the navel area, at the level of the heart and at the level of the third eye.

Trust the crystal to saturate your energy field with radiance, beauty, and abundance. Imagine that you are gradually turning into a real jewel, that you illuminate the world with light and glow of shimmering glare.

6. Stay in this state for one to three minutes.

Try during the day to remember the feeling of unity with the crystal. Go back to this feeling again and again until you start feeling this abundance radiance all the time!

Tantric Meditation: An Effortless Guide to Your Best Self

Published

Tantric meditation image

What is Tantric Meditation?

Tantra is an assortment of spiritual practices that enable the performers to channel energies from the universe into themselves. It has its origin in two words: tanoti, which means to “extend” or “lengthen” and trayati, which means “setting free” or “deliverance.”

With a presence in a variety of religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism, tantra has been used globally to achieve individual spiritual goals.

Tantric meditation is one of the various tantric practices that an individual can use to achieve purity of the body and soul.

Meditation for beginners tips image

This high-powered meditation technique stirs up consciousness with the sole aim of releasing Shakti energy. As a fast and efficient way, it lifts the lid to a bottomless pit of potential. This could explain why it’s gradually becoming a part of people’s lifestyles.

Being energy based, tantric meditation is a practice that can be used to produce effects using forms of energy such as the power of kundalini, sound, images, colors, yantras, and mantras. Varying results are achieved this way but all point to the ultimate goal of forging ahead spiritually or personal development.

Simply said, it’s having different routes leading to a familiar place.

Getting More Practical

Are you excited already? Let’s get to the action part.

Tantric meditation can take various forms, and it doesn’t hurt to give each a try. The goal in each one of them is to carry you farther on your spiritual journey or personal development.

The Third Eye Meditation

This type of spine meditation allows the free circulation of energy along the spine by increasing heaven awareness without losing connection with the earth. The main aim is to enable sanctified power into the body by the opening the Crown Chakra (ceiling of the head) and Third Eye Chakra (middle of the forehead).

Third eye chakra activation image

The Steps

  • While seated comfortably as you feel your sit bones at the pelvic base, lengthen your spine as you inhale.
  • Picture your head being pulled towards the sky in a straight line.
  • Without changing your spine position, exhale while pushing your tailbone downwards, towards Earth.
  • Maintain your regular breathing pattern and make your chin parallel to the floor.
  • Proceed, move your tongue to the roof of your mouth, and visualize a bright ball sitting at the middle of your forehead (on your third eye).
  • Using your nose to inhale, spin the ball to the top of your head all the way to the tailbone via the spine. All along, recite the word “hung” in your mind.
  • Breathing out through your nose, let the ball barrel up the spine, over your head to your forehead (third eye). Now recite the word “Sau” in the process while inhaling.

“Sau” means “I am” which affirms your oneness with the earth and spiritual realm.

Practicing daily for as few as five minutes, you can build the momentum to over 15 minutes.

The Light Meditation

On the other side, this technique focuses on light and borrows heavily from an ancient tantric custom called Nyasa. Imagination is your best tool here to ensure maximum benefits.

Throughout the process, you can physically touch a specific body part you are imagining or feel it using mental imagery.

The Steps

  • Sitting upright, immerse yourself fully in the present by focusing on your breathing motions and bodily sensations.
  • Visualize your left foot forged from a warm, golden light. Move to the right and perceive it filling with the brightness all the way from the sole to the toes.
  • Coupled with a matching breath, sense the left ankle then the right ankle.
  • In that order, imagine the light filling the left calf right to the bone then switch to the right calf.
  • Allowing the light to rise, let it brighten up the midriff in perfect harmony with your breath at this point chant, “My gut is made of light.”
  • Feel it rise from your lower spine brightening up the heart, lungs and rib cage. Harmonize it with your breath while whispering to your brain, “my chest is full of golden light.”
  • Slowly and smoothly, let it creep into your left arm all the way down to the fingertips, then the right arm.
  • With a matching breath, feel the golden light illuminate your face, get into your mouth and ear passages, then lighting up your brain.
  • Chant, “I am light”.
  • You can then inhale the bliss of light specks and let the light out by exhaling.

Why Tantric Meditation?

Binaural Beats: Benefits And Harm For Your Health, Meditation And Work

Published

on

binaural beats harm image

If you practice meditation, you have probably heard about binaural beats. This is a modern technology that allows you to enter into a meditative state. Unlike traditional methods, when using binaural stimulation,  immersion is quick and easy. The developers claim there is no need for long-term training of skills development or fightingt against extraneous thoughts and doubts about the correctness of the actions performed. This sounds so incredible! But can binaural beats really give us relaxation and quality rest? Or they can harm our bodies? In this article, you’ll find the answers to these questions.

What Are Binaural Beats?

Binaural beats is a brainwave synchronization technology. They exist only in the brain and are not really “rhythms” in the usual sense. The essence is as follows: each ear at the same time catches a little different sound, and the brain combines the frequencies into one, creating a “rhythm”. For example, the left ear catches 210 Hz, and the right ear — 200 Hz. In this case, the brain creates a “rhythm” frequency of 10 HZ — it is just right for the meditative state. If you need “to recharge your batteries” and focus on your work or sports, you need 16 Hz frequency.

Binaural Beats effects image

You should remember that binaural stimulation does not work without headphones. If you just play 2 different frequencies, they remain separate sounds. But only when they are fed in isolation to different ears, the brain begins to generate a new “sound” with a frequency equal to the difference between the frequencies of the sounds.

How Does It Work?

When the frequency is supplied continuously for 7 minutes, the frequency of the brain is synchronized with it. This is a natural reaction, which was known to ancient civilizations. They immersed the audience in a state of hypnosis with the help of rhythmic drumming. Now the same function is performed by rhythms that you can hear in Nightclubs. The difference is that the dance rhythms create the energetic state, and the binaural rhythms — the meditative state, that is, a person mentally and physically relaxes. Like modern club music, rhythmic drumming and melodies due to its hypnotic effect previously allowed a person to achieve a state close to trance.

Brain activity is determined by the frequency of waves – this is typical for all forms of energy, including sound and light.

Neurons image

In a state of wakefulness and activity, the brain works on the Beta frequency. In meditation, it switches to lower frequencies – Alpha, Theta, DeltaBeta frequency is associated with stress, from which we all want to get rid of. Using binaural stimulation, it is possible to banish extraneous thoughts and to remove yourself from problems.

Theoretically, binaural beats change the brain’s electrochemical environment, which also causes changes in mind and consciousness. When, while maintaining brain awareness, it is simultaneously captured by the low frequencies, a unique state arises. Practitioners call it “the mind is awake, the body is asleep.” The presence of slightly higher frequencies in the brain can provoke an increase in suggestibility. How you perceive depends on the state of your consciousness. Some states narrow perception, others – expand it. Most often the states of consciousness change depending on the influence of constantly changing environment — both internal and external.

When using binaural beats a person can continuously meditate until the end of the recording. There is no need for additional effort to dive into this state.

Types Of Brain Oscillations

Binaural beats fluctuate in the brain with different frequencies.

Each phase of the waves refers to a different state of the body. There are 5 main binaural beats.

Gamma waves

Gamma binaural beats are the fastest fluctuations. They range from 30 to 170 Hz.

Gamma waves are associated with increased activity, emotional perception of the environment, moments of awareness of something, fear.

Beta waves

The frequency of beta waves varies between 14 and 42 Hz. This effect on the brain makes the body stay awake, wake up, focus.

Beta waves image

People use Beta waves to treat depression, poor selective attention, problems with remembering various information.

Alpha waves

The appearance of alpha waves begins when your eyes are closed and you are in a passive and relaxed state.

Bioelectrical oscillations slow down and there are bursts of alpha waves, the frequency of which varies in the range from 8 to 13 Hz.

Alpha waves image

With the continuation of such relaxation, alpha waves begin to dominate the brain and you may experience a state of complete peace.

Theta waves

Theta waves occur during the transition from complete peace and tranquility to drowsiness. The oscillation frequency becomes moderate and more rhythmic, from 4 to 8 Hz.

Binaural beats of theta waves are accompanied by the appearance of visual images that can be taken from memories or fantasies. This is so-called dream-like images.

Theta state allows you to open access to the unconscious part of the mind, so at this moment various creative ideas, unexpected insights, new associations are born.

Delta waves

Delta waves dominate when you are falling asleep. Their frequency is less than 4 Hz.

Some people can be in the Delta state without losing awareness. This equates to a deep trance.

Delta waves image

When exposed to Delta waves, the brain releases a huge amount of growth hormone, and the body’s recovery and healing processes are enhanced.

Indications And Contraindications

People use binaural therapy to treat a variety of psychoemotional disorders.

For adults:

  • various phobias;
  • panic attack;
  • depressions;
  • neuroses;
  • insomnia;
  • neurological pathologies.

For children:

  • low level of learning capability;
  • speech disorder;
  • problems with concentration;
  • hyperactivity;
  • autism;
  • disorders of psychomotor development.

binaural therapy for kids image

But you have to remember that binaural therapy is completely prohibited for people suffering from:

  • epilepsy;
  • psychosis;
  • arrhythmia.

Binaural Beats Benefits

Synchronization of brain waves provides several effects:

  1. Mindfulness meditation is an opportunity to pay attention to your body, thoughts, the surrounding world, abstracting from extraneous thoughts.
  2. Synchronization of the brain hemispheres, so it begins to function fully. It improves intellectual ability and memory. This allows you to effectively solve problems and achieve your best performance during  work.
  3. Getting rid of stress and relaxation. Binaural beats help to stop worrying and clear the mind of negative thoughts. With daily meditation, the activity of areas of the brain associated with stress is reduced.
  4. Self-improvement. The frequencies of alpha and theta are responsible for the development of consciousness. This opens up opportunities to creatively visualize, learn to focus, control thoughts and emotions instead of letting them control you.
  5. Binaural stimulation allows you to normalize sleep, mood, appetite, get rid of headaches, quit bad habits. It also helps to improve sports performance, as it teaches to tune in to the result, to focus and free your head from stressful thoughts.

How To Use Binaural Beats?

All you need is a computer, smartphone or other gadgets, as well as headphones. You need to get comfortable, close your eyes and relax. You should listen to binaural beats for at least 7 minutes — this time is necessary to synchronize your brain with the external frequency. For best results, you should meditate from 15 minutes to half an hour. You can do this with your eyes open, focusing on a specific object — for example, on a burning candle. However, it is easier for beginners to meditate with their eyes closed – so it is easier not to be distracted.

How To Use Binaural Beats image

When listening to audio, you will not hear the rhythms themselves. It will be a soothing melody or the sounds of nature — this music helps to relax and immerse in a state of consciousness suitable for meditation.

DO NOT listen to binaural beats while driving. It slows down reflexes, which can be dangerous on the road.

DO NOT listen to such beats when you’re doing intellectual work. Since the meditative state is incompatible with rapid critical thinking, which is focused on performing a specific action.

Negative aspects

It is believed that binaural beats are absolutely safe. This technology uses the same frequency at which the brain works during meditation. Natural frequencies influence electrochemical processes in the brain, immersing it in a meditative, deeply relaxed state.

But you should understand that all computer programs, technologies, and techniques in this area are aimed at commercial demand. In fact, pure binaural beats are neuroacoustic drugs.

It is also believed that binaural beats can cause harm to your body. They can be dangerous for teenagers because at this age the brain is not able to perceive even a minor pathology without consequences. The fact is that in nature pure binaural beats do not occur. The body is not familiar with them, they are not natural for it. Since “acquaintance” and “interaction” occurs in the brain, the consequences can be serious for the whole body.

The Bottom Line

Many experiments show that treatment with binaural beats can be very effective in eliminating mental and emotional problems. But keep in mind that such therapy has contraindications and should be used carefully. If you’re not sure if binaural beats are good for you or not, then it’s better to be extra cautious and not  use them. In this case, you can use regular meditative music with nature sounds or mantras for your meditations.

Namaste!
