Insight meditation is self energy healing
Finer details of meditation
Meditate between sit down sessions
Failure to maintain meditation intensity after course
Every time you meditate soul energy flow speeds up. While every time you stop meditating then progress is in regression as the soul energy flow slows down. Appropriately this explains why meditation practice needs to be very intensive in the beginning; so as to get the soul energy flow up to speed. Where it will be above the threshold level and you can do it all the time. It is only when you gain the ability to meditate continuously that your progress in personal transformation really takes off.
With continuous meditation you just hold your awareness continuously within the soul energy flow, at the level of the brow chakra or third eye location. The flow is stronger every day while the resistance is being progressively dissolved every day. Even with continuous meditating ability you will still be affected by life issues, in direct inverse proportion with how much resistance you have dissolved.
The more resistance you have dissolved then the less you will demonstrate reactive behavior. You will only be completely free of life issue emotional impact after you have achieved enlightenment. To be enlightened is defined as the physics energy state of maximum current flow without resistance.
Final goal or result of Insight Meditation is the achievement of enlightenment and not the gaining of psychic abilities, which is a secondary consequence. Our focus needs to be on process and not result. Once the process is correct then the result is 100% guaranteed.
Older you are then the harder it is to sit still correctly in the early stages. In addition you will run out of incarnation before you complete the full sequence; from high resistance rock to low resistance butterfly is achieved. Meditation teaches you as you go with the gaining of the wisdom of direct experience. How much sacrifice are you prepared to make in order to gain maturity in meditation practice? No one can give to another what you do not have yourself.
How to Meditate
By following the free serious how to meditate guide you will gain a firm foundation in understanding the overall process of insight meditation. This will make your practice easier as well as enable you to remain disciplined and tenacious. When you can see the purpose clearly then the practice requires far less effort. Insight meditation is a dissolving meditation.
Firstly we will begin with an explanation of how to meditate. In the early stages a strict protocol needs to be maintained in order to achieve the best results. This process begins with Anapana, which is to sit still with spine erect and unsupported with the focus of your awareness, on your breathing in the area of the triangle of your nose with the upper lip. This practice will sharpen, discipline and increase the sensitivity of the mind.
A standard meditating period has one hour duration. Make no mistake soul energy flow is increasing with this exercise. After a certain point is reached in Anapana practice. You will be ready to practice Insight meditation, which is a body scan of the whole body with your awareness. Requirement for readiness to commence Insight meditation is to be able to hold your concentration for at least two minutes without any distracting thoughts; combined with being able to feel the subtle or auric sensations over the triangle area.
Meditation is defined as the disciplined focus of thought to enable the increased flow of energy from the over soul to dissolve the resistance of ego.
Side effects of purification caused by meditation increasing energy
Practice meditation as often as your circumstances allow but do not be in a hurry with your stage of progression. It is a long journey, which needs to be taken one firm foundation step at a time. Always keep in mind that meditation is a process of increasing energy in the body, which will lead to inevitable consequences. The process of purification causes impurities or poisons to be released and eliminated, which often have unpleasant or uncomfortable side effects. This is particularly so in the beginning stages.
Single most common form of side effect would be headache or migraine. This occurs due to the increased energy flow through channels, which are not yet wide enough to facilitate that flow. A wide range of symptoms can be expressed and in any combination. Various common symptoms would be skin rashes, burping, coughing, sneezing, crying, nasal discharge, nausea, spinal pains and even diarrhea. This is not an exclusive list as the symptoms of aggravation or healing crisis are indeed very extensive.
Do not be deterred in any way from your practice of meditation by the mirage of any side effect or combination of side effects. Just see it as an elementary stage to be passed through, which it is. Once passed through you will experience stronger more pleasant meditating ability. The early stages can be painful but this is more than made up by the joy of deeper meditation. Whenever you experience a side effect you should be really happy with true inner joy. Because you know that you are definitely meditating correctly.
Meditation improves posture by straightening the spinal alignment
Every serious student of meditation would be wise to have a correct concept for the purpose and function of meditation practice. There are only two paths in life. The first path or ego approach is to run around chasing the illusion enjoying the glamour of sensation. This naturally leads to the energy state of reduced soul energy flow with a contracted twisted spinal alignment of the body with reduced function. The second path or soul approach is to sit still in order to escape the illusion.
In meditation you practice detached observation of sensation with no particular attachment. Naturally leads to the energy state of increased soul energy flow with an expanded straightened spinal alignment of the body. With improved posture this results in improved metabolic function or health. Increased soul energy flow progressively removes the sediments of crystallization or resistance. Meditation is a progression from rigidity into flexibility on all levels of your being mental, emotional and physical.
Whenever you meditate your soul energy flow increases or speeds up and whenever you stop meditating your soul energy flow slows down. Understanding this aspect explains why any progress you have successfully made during meditation practice is easily reversible, during those periods of meditation abstinence.
Ten day meditation Course
One ten-day meditation course correctly practiced will enable you to make a significant improvement in your stage of progression or ability. After your course you practice one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening every day. Certainly this will enable you to maintain your stage of meditation progression but it will result in very little overall improvement or progression. Accordingly this explains why it is better to do a ten-day course every month for four months; rather than to do a ten-day course every year for four years!
Your focus for meditation ability needs to be on doing continuous courses until the stage of continuous meditation ability has been achieved. To become aware of the soul energy flow and hold your awareness within it results in being able to meditate continuously with continuous dissolving of crystallization. Only at night when you sleep does your body rest to remove the stirred up impurities and further soften the linings of the energy channels in order for meditation the next day to expand the channels even further.
Only continuous meditation enables possibility of enlightenment
While you are practicing continuous meditation you will achieve only progression in meditating ability. With no reversal of results due to soul energy flow slowing down! When this point is reached you no longer need the initial strict protocol any longer. Because you now have the ability to meditate in all conditions. You have now begun the dual life of the outer everyday life and the inner meditative life all at the same time. No one practicing meditation at the level of a one ten-day course every year with two hours each day only will ever achieve enlightenment.
Only meditators with the ability to meditate continuously will ever have any chance to achieve enlightenment. During meditation at times you will experience what is called a mini enlightenment experience or Bungarelli; which is a larger than usual influx of soul energy flow coming down from your Over-soul. This experience is identical to the enlightenment experience with one small difference. This difference is the degree of resistance in your body. With the mini enlightenment experience the resistance pulls up the influx of energy short.
While with enlightenment it is a complete experience due to the resistance having been previously removed. Enlightenment is the final dissolution and removal of the last remaining specks of resistance in your being. Once enlightenment has been achieved then reversal of meditation progress is no longer applicable. You are now truly free.
