The term “centering" means here to focus the attention on your own being and to experience the present moment (meaning not to digress or project the mental in the reminiscences of past events or in the imagining of future events). This "centering" or balancing of our own being also means to deeply harmonize all our energies (mental, spiritual or physical), and also to calm down, as deeply as possible, the usual psycho-mental agitation (parasitic thoughts, auxiliary emotions, etc.). In this state of inner centering we will much more easily focus our attention on any subject of meditation, because inside, we are at the same time present, lucid, relaxed and receptive to the high energies.

For this very simple procedure it is preferable to sit on a chair, with our spine perfectly straight and with both soles fully on the ground, with the palms on the thighs and eyes closed.

 

First we will realize an awareness of our consciousness on the entire body, from bottom to top, very slowly, from the soles of the feet to the top of the head.  At the same time, we relax as deeply as possible the muscle segments on which we focus our attention; we breathe naturally and without any interference.
After we finished this relaxing "exploration" of our whole physical body, we will then orient our attention to the respiratory process which goes on normally and naturally. At the same time we visualize around us a sphere of bright white light. When we inhale, we acknowledge that this bright white light flows into our being more and more, until it fills it completely, and when exhale, we are aware that we eliminate from our being all the states of tension, stress, anxiety, etc. (in other words, of any evil influences or energies, of any perverse aspects). We continue to breathe consciously in this way until we feel a state of deep relaxation, doubled by peace, serenity and inner joy. If we observe that the mind has a tendency to divagate again, we gently but firmly bring the attention back to the respiratory process described above.

 

Further on (after the previous stage has been successfully completed) we will visualize small subtle energy channels (NADI) coming out through the soles of the feet and through the bottom of the spine and that extend more and more until they get to be like some sui generis roots that link us to the benefic subtle energies of the Earth. We continue this process of creative visualization combined with aware breathing until we feel how these subtle bio energetic "roots" connect us to the center of the Earth, this resulting in a deep sense of safety and tranquility.
Now (after we successfully completed this stage described above) we acknowledge the fact that we can "breathe" through these subtle "roots"; we will create thus the beneficial telluric subtle energies, captured from the subtle center of the Earth, ascend further, as if aspired with a suction pump, and this aspiration of the benefic subtle energy of the Earth in our being will continue until we feel "full" inside with this vital energy.

Next, we will focus attention on the top of the head (above the head), an area in close connection with the subtle secret opening to God, BRAHMARANDRA. We will also visualize here how, from this level, the subtle energy channels (NADI) start and extend higher and higher, until eventually they extend up to the sky, thus putting us in connection with the Sun, with the planets, stars and galaxies. At the same time, during inhaling we take in our being, through these subtle energy channels (NADI), the subtle cosmic energy, which comes into our being through the top of the head until we feel that this cosmic energy fills our whole being. Further on, during inhaling, we will visualize that we simultaneously breathe in the two subtle benefic  energy currents, both the telluric and the cosmic one, both ineffably  fusing at the level of the heart (ANAHATA CHAKRA), where they will radiate forth within our whole being.
After this stage, we will resume the awareness of our consciousness on the body and we will gently open our eyes. We become aware of this state of deep and integrating harmony and of the perfect balance throughout our whole being.

Health is a state of mind

 

messeNatha participated in Sund Livsstil messe – 27-29 September 2013

 by Arthur Lederer

Once a year, for the last 28 years, Sund Livsstil gathers around 200 exhibitors and 20,000 visitors who come together for a weekend fair dedicated to a healthy life style.

Of course, everybody wants to be healthy. But what are we doing about it? Is it enough to just eat whatever, live however, and when the body gets sick to just go to a doctor to fix whatever is broken?

A story from the life of Krishna

kishnachildSages quote a historical story about the conversation between the powerful king Yadava and an AVADHUTA

One day, Yadu Maharaj noticed an AVADHUTA brahman, that seemed to be very young and learnt, walking freely and self-confident. Being himself very well learnt and a good knower of the spiritual science, the king took the opportunity and addressed him: Brahman, I see you do not practice any religious activity and yet you have gained a deep knowledge upon all things and people in this world. Please tell me how did you gain this extraordinary wisdom and why do you travel freely in the world, manifesting like a child?

Krishna – the great avatar and divine teacher

 krishnaA long time ago, the world was oversaturated by useless fights between various kings, which were in fact demons pretending to have royal blood. The entire world was troubled. Then, Bhumi, the goddess of this earth, went to Brahma to tell him about the sufferance she endured due to the demoniac kings.

Brahma told her: “The great Vishnu will come on the Earth soon, endowed will all his supreme powers and he will stay here until he will fulfil his mission of destroying the demons and re-establishing faith.”

What is Yoga?

yoga postureby Gregorian Bivolaru

Yoga is an extremely complex spiritual tradition, having a history older than five thousand years.
It possesses a very rich and extensive literature.

 

Yoga and sexuality

cupluby Gregorian Bivolaru
The genuine yoga tradition unveils a completely different approach in love and sexuality, highly more positive and plenary, unlike the confused and grotesque vision proper to most of the western people, either intoxicated or improperly educated.

 

The Tantric approach of the couple relationship

sun coupleThe Tantric system is one of the best systems for the modern times, in which spiritual values are forcefully being replaced by materialism and ignorance is happening almost everywhere. Tantra is the spiritual system which, having a scientific side, manages to integrate perfection and the absolute in a practical and tangible way, staying always at the level of immediate reality, instead of sterile philosophical dissertations.

 

Learning sexual continence

cupluLearning sexual continence is a kind of leitmotif in a couple relationship. It comes over and over again.

Quotes

''You shouldn't ever wish to achieve paranormal powers (Sidhhis). All that you need to ceaselessly wish for is to reach the Supreme Truth.'' - Gregorian Bivolaru

''Almost always listen to the mysterious voice of your Immortal Self (Atman). Especially before acting, stop and then wait. Only after that can you act with wisdom.'' - Gregorian Bivolaru
