  1. Bija Mantras Practice

    Ok, Sketch, thank you very much for your input. While I'm unfamiliar with Alexander technique and Emilie Conrad's Continuum practices, I have tried Daoist six healing sounds and I found the bijas more powerful/effective. Now, two things in your reply resonate with my practice: 1. There's definitely focus/circulation of energy in body areas, tissues, bones for each bija. Like each one would activate a specific circuit, a particular modality. 2. Interior sound !? That's a deep one... Sometimes the bija is not so much sounded as thought/invoked before and beyond mere uttering. Secondly...I think I can talk to my body (the physical one) in a "language" that's before words...I can't put into words the feeling. Now, my practice as I have navigated through it: 1. I do it for 30-90 min at a time, 2-3 times a day. Possibly because of my health problems....I need a stronger dose. 2. First Stage: clarity in uttering the bija (inner sound, I do not use chanting). By clarity I mean the uttering has some crisp clear quality like outrightly speaking....and the bija vibrates all body. 3. Second Stage: bija starts repeating itself....I have reached this...from time to time. 4. Third Stage: mind (as in buddhist mind, that's all being) gets fully focused...eventually absorbed/immersed in the bija....I had only a glimpse of this. Basically....that's my experience...I must admit that sometimes I feel like there is a threshold I can't pass through...maybe the health interfering ?! I don't get Second Stage on a regularly basis....Third Stage remains only a dream for me. Any input on the above ?
  2. Bija Mantras Practice

    So, this is my first post, I'm trying to be brief yet clear. Anyone in this forum has experience (as in in practicing) in bija mantras meditation ? By bija mantras I mean Lam, Vam, Ram, Yam, Ham, Om. They are traditionally associated with chakras, but that's a secondary aspect, actually they work on the Tattvas: Earth, Water, Fire, Air, Ether, Mind. What I'm interested are these: 1. How long/intensive was/is your practice ? 2. How would you describe/prescribe the practice ? 3. What results have you achieved ? With no intent to be rude...please understand that I have no interest in replies from the books, but only in your experience.
