Just before we go over about kundalini awakening… we want to recognize the meaning of kundalini! The kundalini Shakti is the fact that concealed constructive energy saved in every human being by awakening which each human being can achieve the degree of Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammed.
Every true seeker of spirituality understands that unless of course the kundalini awakening occurs… one shall not be able to reach the amount of Nirvikalpa samadhi along with the stage of self realization. Kundalini awakening is actually a hundred % should before 1 can gain enlightenment on this daily life.
Kundalini power saved within our backbone slowly recoils alone. It is as if God is straight lifting us straight up for us to realize God with a short period of time. It’s a quite noble experience for every single accurate seeker of spirituality.
For your kundalini awakening to happen… we need to preserve the regular monthly quota of power provided to every man and lady. We just can not let this power uncover pure bodily channels of satisfaction.
The path of kundalini awakening shall grow to be distinct in the subsequent example-
In the normal routine if we’re required to take 11 million actions up the ladder of spirituality… then it really is also feasible that we get the elevator straight up and cut short the route.
This elevator… the shortcut is the path with the kundalini which could be awakened by preserving the cosmic energy supplied to each human being each month. As the stored power will increase… so does the journey expedite?
Every accurate seeker of spirituality needs to one-day switchover towards the recourse of kundalini awakening for the regular route might consider hundreds of thousands of manifestations… a lengthy journey indeed!
Because the kundalini Shakti raises in the base with the backbone in the direction of the centre of the forehead… one shall encounter quite fearful flashes. It can be really terrifying occasionally for that kundalini awakening is accompanied by the shadow of the mammoth king cobra with a lot of heads glaring at you from a short distance.
The coiled Serpentine kundalini Shakti has been compared to the energy which 1 experiences although viewing a coiled snake coming from slumber. It’s as well terrifying an encounter and numerous seekers of spirituality depart their journey midway.
The coiled Serpentine power referred to as kundalini Shakti isn’t to be feared of. We need to below all circumstances look at the deal with from the cobra having a sensation that we need to triumph over the fear imbibed inside us. Fearing the coiled kundalini Shakti shall be of no aid.
The practice of absolute celibacy brings about a radical change inside the personality of a significant seeker of spirituality. As we conqueror the coiled kundalini Shakti… we shall discover an huge glow on our forehead visible to the mankind.
The glow about the forehead of any human becoming straight represents the internal pondering method of any human becoming. More the glow… the greater the human being is supposed to be around the spiritual pedestal.
We may possibly indulge in kundalini awakening proper now or in subsequent manifestations… there is absolutely no escape. We have to indulge in kundalini awakening in among the manifestations so that our soul (atman within our body) regains its pristine pure from in the earliest and liberates forever through the cycle of birth and demise.
Within the last one hundred fifty decades two individuals have quite efficiently awakened their kundalini and recognized God. Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana although proceeding around the route of pure spirituality looking for God had their kundalini awakened totally. It absolutely was only soon after their kundalini had awakened had been they in a position to succeed in the stage of Nirvikalpa samadhi.
Each and every true seeker of spirituality understands the importance of kundalini awakening. If we’re to realize God within our lifetime… we need to awaken our kundalini fully within this quite daily life. Unless of course we consider the raise straight up… we shall not attain the degree of an awakened 1… a residing Buddha!
Kundalini awakening… even so fearful it may possibly appear to be… is representative with the good powers with the Cosmos overtaking the Satanic powers forever. Every God recognized soul reaches the amount of a Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ or Prophet Mohammed only following acquiring conquered the unfavorable forces for actually by awakening with the kundalini.
Kundalini awakening is better feasible inside a Guy… The prime cause why inside the whole background of mankind only two ladies had their kundalini awakened fully… Gargi, the bachelor philosopher and Maitreyi… the renowned spouse of Sage Jnanavalakya!
Gargi was that special lady who having awakened her kundalini indulged herself in the famous dialogues with Pundit Mandan Mishra around the topic of intercourse. Gargi finally defeated Pundit Mandan Mishra for she was a really God recognized soul. Pundit Mandan Mishra had but to awaken his kundalini.
Sage Jnanavalakya was that dominant force in the times of king Janaka that even before the contest among ten,000 pundits and sages gathered on stage had started… Sage Jnanavalakya ordered the prize cash to be taken home. Sage Jnanavalakya was a really God realized soul. His kundalini had awakened fully and he realized that none within the assembly had reached his level of spiritual attainment.
Maitreyi… his dutiful wife was in no way following the mundane affairs of lifestyle… she yearned for attaining self realization within her lifetime. She understood well that her husband could impart her pearls of wisdom attaining which she could get her kundalini awakened and finally achieve the stage of enlightenment.
The Gargi and the Maitreyi colleges in New Delhi, India are reminiscent of those enlightening occasions within the historical past of mankind which remind us that kundalini awakening is also doable for any lady.
Summing up I will need to emphasize the fact that the valuable semen is needed to become stored if we truly need Kundalini awakening in the earliest. It’s only once the saved semen rises by way of the backbone towards the degree of the centre from the forehead… shall we acquire enlightenment inside this life.

Question by Jack B: Having trouble receiving guidance from my subconscious?
I have used “prayer” or “meditation” techniques in the past to get definitive answers to problems that perplexed me for years. Over the past few months I have been meditating for days at a time to receive an answer as to wether or not I should marry my gf. There have been a lot of trust issues and I have given up on resolving them consciously and am turning to the subconscious for answers, Trouble is I usually get an answer in such a way I KNOW it is the subconscious. Right now I am not sure what I am getting if anything at all, and if there might be something blocking the answer. Any advice? Maybe I need to just pray more consistently?
Answer by olive
I think you should not fully rely on the subconcious to make the decision.
Listen to your intuition. What does it say?
A famous philosopher once said: If you have a question, throw a coin up into the air and choose heads or tails to guide you with the answer….. once the coin is up in the air, you will know which side you will want to win.

So, the agony has passed. You’ve nurtured the herbs in your home herb garden and now you are seeing results. But what do you do now? Don’t despair, using herbs from a home herb garden is the good part. This is the ecstasy.
Always remember that the harvesting of any basket herbs 1produce is a two step process: gathering and storing. Storage needs planning, whilst gathering is usually arbitrary and depends on when you feel your plants to be ready.
One of the great benefits of herbs has always been their excellent storage capability without any great loss of their primary virtue. Using herbs from a home herb garden depends both on the type of herb and your intended usage; you need to prepare for one of several storage methods. For aeons past herbs have been dried or pickled in salt or vinegar. Today we can add freezing to our storage arsenal, for instance, you can freeze culinary herbs in ice blocks for later use in stews and soups.
Using herbs from a home herb garden – rules of engagement – gathering.
There are some simple rules to follow when gathering or storing. The process is really not complicated. To gather effectively whilst preserving their virtues follow these rules:
1. In the week before gathering is to take place, avoid spraying any insecticide near plants.
2. A dry, balmy, moderate spell in June is your best option in Northern climes. (For Southern hemisphere gardeners this means December)
3. Harvest in mid-morning to avoid excessive heat whilst harvesting.
4. Ensure target plants are insect-free.
5. Don’t be greedy. Remove 25% or less of any bushy plant to enable strong regrowth for later use. Discard damaged leaves or stems.
6. If possible, shelter the target plants with shadecloth the night before harvesting takes place. This should be placed on a frame to avoid contact with your plants.
Using herbs from a home herb garden – rules of engagement – storage and preservation.
basket herbs 2We have already covered the choices here. (Drying, pickling or freezing) Let’s cover the how in broad terms. The most important thing when using herbs from a home herb garden is common sense; think about what you are about to do. If all went well with the harvesting, we now have a healthy batch of produce.
Storage method 1 – drying.
Preparation: obtain a packet of rubber bands, a ball of string and some “s” shaped wire hooks.
Method: Take lengths of string and make ‘clotheslines’ in a shaded dry spot. Separate herbs to be dried into bunches comprising 5 to 10 stems. (Depending on type of herb – you will soon get a feel for quantities) Secure these together by twisting the rubber band around the base of the stems. Use the “s” wire hooks to hang the bunches on the ‘clotheslines’.
Storage method 2 – preserving.
Definitely my favourite way of using herbs from a home herb garden.
Preparation 1: obtain several types of bottles with corks capable of a reasonably tight seal. (The following paragraphs will indicate what containers you will need) Steep clean fresh herbs in oil or vinegar. Rosemary, thyme, tarragon, mint, basil and sage all work well. Serve as a herbed vinegar or use as a flavoured oil for cooking or salads.
Preparation 2: Obtain several types of containers with lids capable of a reasonably tight fit and a bag of coarse salt. Place herbs and salt in alternating layers in a container. (Old ice cream containers work for me) When all moisture is leeched out, remove herbs and use aromatic salt in table grinders.
Storage method 3 – freezing.
Preparation: obtain a roll of wax paper and a wide flat container capable of use in a freezer.
Method: Tear or slice herbs into convenient sizes and place on layers of waxed paper in the wide, flat container. Place in freezer overnight. Remove container, discard wax paper and repack frozen herbs into more convenient freezer storage containers.
There are many variations to the above methods of using herbs from a home herb garden, but the first two have been used successfully for centuries (sans rubber bands) and the freezing method is a simple one. Try these before you buy dehydrators or ruin your oven or microwave.

Question by Seeker: I need help from any Wiccan/ Pagan who is “out”!?
I recently came “out of the broom closet” with my parents. My dad doesn’t care, but I think it bothers my (catholic) mom and she won’t tell me. I she always talks about Wicca in a disgusted voice and ordered me not to bring any Wiccan “stuff” out into public. Is there any way I can show her that Wicca (and witchcraft) isn’t that bad? I told her the basics of being a Wiccan, but I don’t think that was enough.
PLEASE DO NOT ANSWER IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN TRYING TO “SAVE” ME!!!
Also how do I get her to let me bring wicca books and other things (pentacle necklace, etc.) out in public?
my mom isn’t VERY catholic she stop going to church every week and now only goes every now and then.
also i love my mom very much (more than any one i know ) im not mad at her i just want her to see it my way
when i said “out” i meant as a wiccan not homosexually (i notticed some people got the phrases mixed up)
Answer by christians_are_terrorists666
you can tell her that Hitler was a good catholic in a sarcastic voice, catholics have done a lot of bad things in history, its best that you do some research about christian history, i have a book called the dark side of christian history by helen ellerbe and ten things I learned wrong from a conservative church by john killinger, knowledge is power and its best to arm yourself to the teeth, tell her that Opus Dei is the mafia of christianity and protestants are just as crooked, they steal money form gullible people so they can have jets and mansions

Averill Park, NY (PRWEB) December 1, 2009 ??
A new retrospective, interview-based, case study found that meditation and yoga practices learned by students who attended The American Meditation Institute?s Heart and Science of Yoga course led to the following reproducible, long-term, health-promoting benefits: lowered blood pressure, lowered heart rate, reduced cholesterol levels, decreased chest pain, diminished or extinguished acute and chronic pain, weight loss, increased breathing capacity, increased exercise capacity, improved quality and quantity of sleep, improved energy levels, increased creative capacity, diminishment of migraines, significant reductions in stress and fear, elimination of irritable bowel syndrome and a general sense of happiness and optimism in all facets of life for every participant.
