Egyptian Healing Rods The method used in Ancient Egypt for strengthening energy flows within a human body is shown on the figures demonstrating the second Master-Arkan (see diagram below). Two rods are clutched in the hands of this standing figure.They are clutched with strength, creating an electrical conduit. The hands, holding the rods tightly, free this energy within the body to gather it in unipolar knots and in spinal fluid. The renewal of energetic potential is one 100% and continues for 24 hours. Vajroli Mudra (The Thunderbolt Attitude) Even anyone living a free lifestyle without the formal rules of yoga, if he practises vajroli well, that yogi becomes a recipient of siddhis (perfections). Vajra is 'thunderbolt' or 'lightning'. It is also the weapon of Lord Indra and means 'mighty one'. Vajra in this context refers to the vajra nadi which governs the uro-genital system. It is the second innermost layer of sushumna nadi. Vajra nadi is the energy flow within the spine which governs the sexual systems of the body.
Introduction to the chakras Written by © Ewald Berkers What chakras are and their psychological properties Chakras are centers of energy, located on the midline of the body.

Natural Fertility, Pregnancy Health How to add small practices to keep you connected, deepen your awareness and lighten your load By Helen Zee A question asked often by yoga students is how can you get the connection and depth outside a yoga class.

Japanese Zen Buddhist Philosophy 1. The Meaning of the Term Zen The designation of this school of the Buddha-Way as Zen, which means sitting meditation, is derived from a transliteration of the Chinese word Chán. Because the Chinese term is in turn a transliteration of the Sanskrit term dhyāna, however, Zen owes its historical origin to early Indian Buddhism, where a deepened state of meditation, called samādhi, was singled out as one of the three components of study a Buddhist was required to master, the other two being an observation of ethical precepts (sīla) and an embodiment of nondiscriminatory wisdom (prajñā). The reason that meditation was singled out for the designation of this school is based on the fact that the historical Buddha achieved enlightenment (nirvāna) through the practice of meditation.

Scriptorium - The Wheel of Changes At first glance there seems to be little to connect the major festivals of the pagan calendar with the ancient Chinese "Book of Changes" or I Ching. Both systems are ancient and venerable, but there seems no reason for any fundamental connection between their underlying philosophies. Yet think for a moment of the bases of these two apparently disparate systems. The yearly circle of major festival days (be it expressed as the major and minor sabbats of wicca, the fire and solar festivals of the druids or however else) is an eight-fold expression of the continuous cycle of the seasons, of the interplay between darkness and light, yin and yang - a fitting description of the eight trigrams that underpin the I Ching. By considering together the "Book of Changes" and the "Wheel of the Year" composed by the festivals, valuable new insights into each are obtained through knowledge of the other.

Wei-wu-wei: Nondual action Wei-wu-wei: Nondual action By David Loy Philosophy East and West Vol. 35, No. 1 (January 1985) pp. 73-87 ... at the still point, there the dance is, But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity, Where past and future are gathered. Experience It Now - Self Realization (Kundalini Awakening) through Sahaja Yoga Now, after the end of the meditation, see if you are feeling relaxed and if your thoughts have slowed down or gradually disappeared. This is the first stage of meditation - thoughtless awareness - where you are fully alert but without any thoughts, in a state of pure and peaceful consciousness. Now see if you can feel a sensation of a gentle cool breeze in your palms and above your head. It might be warm in the beginning which is a sign that your Kundalini energy is purifying your chakras, but it will eventually cool down.
