Definition Insight Meditation
By definition only meditation practice which induces the increased flow of energy. From the oversoul coming down into our being on the earth plane; will lead to complete transformation.
Finer details of meditation Insight meditation is a process of self energy healing. It is best to do one hourly sit down sessions. Only meditate longer if it is comfortable to do so. Certainly it is very beneficial to adopt any physical exercise program. That is designed to square up your frame and straighten the alignment of your spine.
This is in combination with serious meditation. Yoga, isometric exercises and even Thai traditional massage are particularly beneficial. In improving meditation quality due to increased soul energy flow strength.
Insight meditation will correct body conformation
In some cases strategic chiropractic sessions are also worth serious consideration. Meditation practice will soften your body and correct exercise will stretch your body. Which in turn will improve the alignment or conformation of your physical form. Effectively with insight meditation practice you are progressively building up energy within the body.
Meditate between sit down sessions
Try to maintain the meditating awareness even after your sit down session is over. While you are at the Anapana stage maintain the Anapana exercise. Do your best to maintain the Anapana exercise continuously all day as best you can. When you are at the Insight meditation [body scan with your awareness] stage. Maintain this meditation technique after the sit down session is over.
Certainly the more successful you are at maintaining awareness between meditations. Then the more rapid your progress will be. If you have lost meditating awareness then the only solution is another sit down meditation session. Over time your loss of awareness will be less and less as energy follows thought. Obviously this is how you evolve into continuous meditation ability. If I had understood this correctly when I was first meditating. Certainly then I could have achieved continuous meditation ability much earlier than what was the case.
Interestingly it took four 10 day meditation courses over a 6 months period. Before I gained continuous meditation ability. Meditating between meditations is the big secret to achieving rapid progress in meditation maturity. Clearly the most important aspect is how well you maintain your awareness! Every time you meditate you clear out some resistance; which results in a stronger soul energy flow rate.
Failure to maintain meditation intensity after course
Common mistake that many meditators make is not to maintain their practice. At a level after the course that will maintain or improve their meditation ability. In conclusion this naturally results in the soul energy flow rate progressively winding down again; to the before meditation course level. Consequently in this case when you go to the meditation center again for another 10 day course. It is like starting for the first time from scratch.
You need to do at least two one hour meditation sessions every day; just to maintain your current level of meditation ability. As a result this is the whole reason why I say. It is best to do a ten-day course every month until continuous meditation ability has been achieved. When this point is reached you no longer need the meditation center for anything further. In the beginning when you first practice meditation. Posture with suitable environment is very important.
Early restrictions not important after meditation maturity
These early restrictions are not important at all. Once you have gained maturity in meditation practice. This is defined to be when you have the ability to pick up the awareness of the soul energy flow easily. At this stage you may meditate under any conditions. As continuous meditation is self energy healing continuously. Surprisingly in fact you may listen to the Rolling stones dancing the Irish jig. All the while practicing deep meditation because your soul energy flow is so strong. It is all so very easy after you have achieved maturity in meditation practice.
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. Accordingly it will lead to inevitable consequences.
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.
Early stages can be painful but this is more than made up by the joy of deeper meditation ability. Whenever you experience a side effect you should be really happy with true inner joy. Because you know that you are definitely meditating correctly.
Final goal or result of Insight Meditation is the achievement of enlightenment. Appropriately it is not the gaining of psychic abilities, which is a secondary consequence. Our focus needs to be on process and not results. 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. Which is from high resistance rock to low resistance butterfly.
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.
