  1. A New sense ?

    Hi all, hope you are having a great day ! So basically recently I have been feel in tune with a certain inner sense/intuition/feeling, i m not sure how to define it exactly, but i will try to describe it. This sense feels like a sense of inner knowing that this is what is going to happen and this is what should happen. this sense feels like confidence combine with heart, connected with life. I m struggling with understanding it mentally, and it is overwhelming me as it feels like it has a big scope and requires a big expansion of consciousness to realize it. Recently many weird things happening suddenly out of nowhere and such, that never happened before. did anyone go through such experience, if yes, can you please explain more this sense to me? and how did you cope with it? Thanks.
  2. Been reading about people who shift reality or jump dimension. and what you people think about it and its possibility? Some may jump into different reality than here with slight changes, some with big changes, some to past and others to totally different realm. I know it can be understood from a perspective of escapism and avoidance of what is to a different reality where the problem is not there.... but again they end up having to face it in the other reality maybe. but why not do it maybe for fun rather than fear ? and how does it fit in the energy, tao and all that puzzle of the universe ?
  3. May peace find those of you who, this message may reach. I would like to open a discussion regarding sufi cultivation here on this page. I welcome all fellow cultivators from all different paths *bow*
  4. Hi there, I had the realisation of having aphantasia about 2 years ago, ever since then my mind became fixated on curing myself and redeveloping the skill possesed by 99% of the population. Through my fixation i learned obsessively about everything i could relate to it: digestion, diet, nutrition, leaky gut, chakras, energy, reiki, ibogaine, ayahuasca, god In part i am very grateful to it, because only through the realisation of having aphantasia did i become spiritual, reiki level 2, meditation initiated and fundementally a happier human being through my reconnection with the devine. Every free moment that i have i like to read about ayurveda, yoga, hinduism, energies etc and super interested in alternative medicines considering that i have tried most of them and on my way to study them on my new life path of becoming a natural healer So happy for my new life path, but still there is the aphantasia hanging around almost like a curse. I have considered many causes including stuff like carmic debts and i am almost out of ideas... I am begging anyone that might have tools to help me understand and overcome the affliction known as aphantasia. Thank you in advance, Human
  5. The Dragon Revealed -

    Thank you for making this opportunity available for others to share their experience in the Chinese Internal arts. My name is Eric Wilson . . . I trained and taught Chinese Kung-fu, Tai-chi, and Qigong for more than 24 years. And while I did realize a great manifestation of "internal" power, I also experienced some very strong negative effects. I am sharing my story and these experiences at the links below, and it is my prayer that these will be of help to those who also have had questions about the spiritual source of Chi and "internal" power. Thank you, Eric Wilson and family
  6. Hello, As I have been practicing and working on attachments and identity. I have reached a state where i have dis-identified myself with my inner self, thoughts, past and such inner stories of me. but now i m stuck with deriving a sense of self and identity from other people, as how people perceive me. I used to be more of an introverted person, but now i m more of an extroverted person, as the need to have an identity is itching and needed from outside Because i need a kind of purpose or a reason to move and live life. I m not taking the choice to release the identity yet, because in process of doing that, i started being sad, and feeling purposeless. Less motivate to live and no passion to life. I have nothing to live for or something to exist for which makes me feel useless and why i exist? Any help or suggestion is appreciated.
  7. mandlebrot energy map

    Zooming out on a quadratic mandlebrot yeilds an interesting image. The red channel is the real value of the complex number. The green channel is the imaginary value of the complex number. the blue channel is the phase of the complex number. it seems to me that right portion of the above image is anthroporphic in a recursive style. Could this mandlebrot set be a map of a human's energy fields? I've heard somewhere that enlightened folk have ten energy centers, and there are three other dots above the crown, in the labeled image.
  8. Hello, i was wondering what came first, a belief or an experience. some people say that we experience first and according to what we experience we form a belief. and other people say, that the belief creates our reality and thus our experience. Some may argue as kids we experience and then we start building beliefs according to what we feel. but other do argue that we come to the world with beliefs, that can be considered Karma inherited from our past life. What do you think, what came first? Can we experience something that we have opposite belief of ? What are the determinants of our reality ? what determines what we experience or situations that arises in our reality?
  9. Hey, i was wondering if other people went through similar experience especially those who practice vipassana, scan the body and such. Sometimes i feel a deeply annoying sensation on 3rd eye, heart and stomach, that arises and feels like deep thing, not pain but makes feel like wanting to hit that part of the body or thought of trying to push something in just feel to exist or whatever. And sometimes almost makes me go crazy when it happens at different parts simultaneously. Any idea what is that related, energy or what ? Thanks
  10. what is your opinion regarding releasing attachments to what makes you happy and/or from which you derive an identity, a purpose from. Ending up purposeless and not having a reason to exist... no identity to preserve and no thing or person to get happiness from. Then the question is, why to exist in such reality if you have nothing to get happiness from or a reason/purpose to live for? on the other side of the equation are pains that we resist and we are averse to. how are you going to handle living with them if you have even have no purpose or something to live for. Ending up with pains and nothing to live for.
  11. Hey everyone hope all is well. I hope I'm posting this in the right thread but I was have came across a few different sources of information about practitioners that develop this rock like sphere of energy in their lower dantian after years of practice. From my knowledge this is when the actual yin and yang of the bodies energies connect and you are then able to cultivate this energy in a sphere that you can manipulate. It stays in the stomach region but can be moved up and down and side to side. Would anyone happen to have any information or maybe has experienced anything like this? That is was I think is our battery pack, we just have to learn how to connect every wire to that battery for it become the whole sphere and rock hard.
  12. Geographic Location

    I see many discussions hinting at location making people weaker or stronger physically, concerning how power flows, for spiritual activity, where non-human entities live, etc. Question: Aside from physical health, how do you know which areas are draining vs. uplifiting your energy? Location on the planet? I read and see that many "masters" claim the mountains are better than the ocean, or water in general. Describe what a perfect setting would be and why?
  13. I was reading someplace that during a levitation practice, the height was reduced due to the carpet having fibers that insulate from the source of energy used for the levitation. I have heard that certain substances increase and decrease the flow of energy, chi and other things. is there a list of these?
  14. Real Feng Shui? Water dowsers recognize that sheep, like most mammals (except cats) instinctively know how to avoid geopathic zones. So why are cats different? http://www.geopathology.com/geopathology-articles/Ulrike-Banis.pdf http://www.geopathology.com/geopathic-stress.html Types of Geopathic Stress The basic three types of naturally occurring Geopathic Stress are underground watercourses, earth grid systems and geologic anomalies or earth fractures. Underground water courses (or water veins) emit an energy that is draining our body's bioenergetic field and can be harmful if a person is spending long periods of time above those areas. It makes no difference how deep the water is down in the earth or how many floors a person lives above ground. Even on the 20th floor of an apartment building the effect can be clearly felt, sometimes even stronger due to the enhancement of iron in reinforced concrete in the ceilings. Earth grid systems consist of straight lines or paths of Geopathic energy. In fact they are more like energetic walls, go deep into the earth, but also reach miles above the surface. They are referred to as "cubic" because they are three-dimensional. Geologic fractures are naturally occurring earth faultlines, but can also be caused by blasting or quarrying. Vortexes, an irregular type of geologic energy, are considered in this category, too.
  15. "At this point, you can't yet comprehend the import of all this, not only because you don't have sufficient energy but because you're not intending anything. If you were, your energy body would comprehend immediately that the only way to intend is by focusing your intent on whatever you want to intend. This time I focused it for you on reaching your energy body." "Is the goal of dreaming to intend the energy body?" I asked, suddenly empowered by some strange reasoning. "One can certainly put it that way," he said. "In this particular instance, since we're talking about the first gate of dreaming, the goal of dreaming is to intend that your energy body becomes aware that you are falling asleep. Don't try to force yourself to be aware of falling asleep. Let your energy body do it. To intend is to wish without wishing, to do without doing. "Accept the challenge of intending," he went on. "Put your silent determination, without a single thought, into convincing yourself that you have reached your energy body and that you are a dreamer. Doing this will automatically put you in the position to be aware that you are falling asleep." "How can I convince myself that I am a dreamer when I am not?" "When you hear that you have to convince yourself, you automatically become more rational. How can you convince yourself you are a dreamer when you know you are not? Intending is both: the act of convincing yourself you are indeed a dreamer, although you have never dreamt before, and the act of being convinced." "Do you mean I have to tell myself I am a dreamer and try my best to believe it? Is that it?" "No, it isn't. Intending is much simpler and, at the same time, infinitely more complex than that. It requires imagination, discipline, and purpose. In this case, to intend means that you get an unquestionable bodily knowledge that you are a dreamer. You feel you are a dreamer with all the cells of your body." http://www.federaljack.com/ebooks/Castenada/books/9. The Art Of Dreaming.pdf Pages 15-16
  16. Harvesting Energy

    Hello All, I am interested in sharing a few quick methods for harvesting some extra energy when you need it. Please feel free to add your own! Here's a starter: Rolling on the ground. Simply stretch out your arms and legs and roll yourself parallel to the ground, outside, open ground, mountain is best, better than water or sea. There are also laying down Tai Chi practices of course. Scientific testing proved that just Qigong breathing alone increases and changes things. I have the link someplace... https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9051169 Breathing is primarily involuntary and generated for metabolic and homeostatic purposes in the brainstem. However, changes in breathing can be voluntary or altered by various environmental stimuli. Therefore, breathing is categorized as either metabolic or behavioral. Breathing that changes during various emotions is a subcategory of behavioral breathing due to the strong connection it has with emotion and behavior. The limbic system, located in the medio-temporal lobe of the brain, is the center that governs emotion.
  17. Hello all, Some of you may have seen some of the energy descriptions in many different forms, in other cultures, and as described by people who are under the influence. I am a fan of the energy sphere, with the fibers of energy inside matching up with fibers outside, the ball or spot, glow of awareness factor. Probably most akin to the Carlos Castaneda descriptions. I could go into very minute detail on that if anyone is not familiar with it. I see in Irish folklore and most of Christianity, there is the halo glow that becomes visible to even those who don't "see" energy plainly. I see Kirlian photography has captured an essence around things that extends beyond the physical form and actually remains intact even if you sever a portion of the physical, for quite some time, fading if you will. I see that in the energy sphere version, there are tentacles of energy emanating from the belly, like an apron, from the hands, and from the eyes. There are roots emanating from the feet. In this energy sphere version, it is like an onion, with layers, and that fibers of energy match from the inside of this sphere to the outside and connect. This connecting giving awareness of that energy, and supplying the perception and interaction with this world. Beyond these basic connections, and by increasing power, people become capable of connecting to more fibers, and thus connecting with more items that previously did not exist, and were not available in this time and space. Complete bundles of these fibers create complete and different worlds, with different laws (physics and string theory if you will). Energy centers, chakras, from my understanding, are simply movement of the point of awareness to "grab" and "bundle" another possible "group" of related energy fibers that exist externally, and internally, thus equalizing the pressure between the two and giving a mode for perception of. Please add your own energy body versions, how they compare, match or don't match... Thank you
  18. The Bonghan System

    In the early 1960's Bong Han Kim discovered a biological system that lined up exactly with the meridians and acupuncture points of the human body. Shortly afterwards Kim and much of his published research disappeared Prior to that, his research indicated, this system had energy carrying capacities, far beyond any other of the human circulatory systems. The next 50 years saw an active suppression of this research. But, the Bonghan system is now being resurrected as the "Primo Vascular System" by some pretty big names in biology, chemistry and cancer research. It seems that this new research is corroborating much of Bong Han Kim's earlier research. I am interested in how many Dao Bums know of this and what their understanding is of its' spiritual/meditative/health value?

  20. The Japanese books written by Tadashi Kanzawa have been translated into English. Kanzawa was featured on the History Channel as a "Stan Lee's Superhuman" for his abilities to put various animals to sleep using "ki". The books were mostly translated by a Neurology/Physiology graduate Nimish Pratha and are currently being sent to people for free for a promotion. http://www.wheelofknowledge.org The Promotion has Ended Books are now available here: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=tadashi+kanzawa The books are mostly centered around healing. His abilities to put animals to sleep seem to be connected with healing the animals through Kiryo or "nerve transmission exchange" and causing them to relax and feel un-threatened.
  21. Hello Everybody! A bit about me: I have always been "spiritual" lets say. Never bought into my catholic upbringing and the such. After a few experiences with psychedelic drugs I became interested in meditation, yoga and generally eastern religions and their mentalities and views on life and existence (mostly buddhism and jainism). I now have a daily yoga and meditation practice. Nothing huge, just 2 sets of sun salutations followed by 20 minutes or so of isha kriya meditation. I am posting today because I have been practicing the material from mantak chia's book on sexuality. My motivations for this in the beginning were very ego driven: i simply was jealous of the orgasms my girlfriends were having, and wanted more from my 3-5 second burst of an ejaculation. Now after 2 months or so of (not to successful) practice, I realize it is not solely about the pleasure of an orgasm, but the deeper understanding of ones of sexuality, and a more healthy control over it (eg, not ogling every nice girl that walks by). I have been doing the cool draw daily, but not too sure if I am getting anywhere. I don't really feel a tingling or energy like described, only like, a "fullness" or presence, imagine molasses travelling around the body. It seems i can kinda tell where the energy is, but its not a real sensation so I am not really sure if it is what I feel, or placebo. Im not sure what I am supposed to feel, or if what I am feeling is correct, but that's just my bodies own expression of sexual energy (were all different!). Although, on occasion I feel a distinct tingling sensation in my testicles, but I have not yet been successful on pulling it up into the perineum and rest of the body. I have also been doing the big draw, and seem to be making a little progress there. I definitely feel more when self cultivating, but when thing start feeling nice they do not really travel up the spine at all, and it crest over into ejaculation. Albeit the ejaculation is a little more pleasurable, it is just as short and underwhelming. I keep reading in many places of these incredible, energetic whole body orgasms, and would like to get there, but I seem to need a little more guidance than mantak chia's books are offering. Also I am unsure when I should put my tongue to the roof of my mouth, throughout a sexual experience (with my self or otherwise) or only afterwards to bring the energy back down from my head? I have heard some criticism on Mr. Chia;s teachings, and would be totally open to a new practice if any of you have any suggestions on how I could get this working! Have any of you achieved this? Any tips or experiences you would like to share? Anything at all is well appreciated Thanks, keep the good vibes rolling!
  22. Hey everybody, I was just wondering if anyone tried the rasa transmission from Ausar (www.ausar.org) because it's among the most powerful transmission I ever received that did something permanent to me and not just healed my body or removed blockages. I was searching for methods to quiet my mind and open me up to the Divine light, one's soul Consciousness. I tried a lot, from Flying Phoenix Qi Gong to Kriya Yoga. Nothing worked as efficiently as the Rasa transmission I received from Ausar. I was genuinely surprised. I felt the top of head opening instantly and saw many lights inside my brain. I was put in the deepest bliss I never could imagine. I tried this on my own with my Qi Gong technique but Ausar explained to me that since his crown chakra is already lit up, it was easy for him to light my crown chakra, like turning on a candle with a hot flame. After the transmission, I always felt the top of my head open and I knew myself as Divine light rather than the physical body. I am so impressed that I wonder if anyone has got a transmission from Ausar. I would love to connect with you and hear your experience. Cheers, Syl
  23. I've done some research but I've started to understand how this energy works. It has came to me mostly thru qigong, sexual kung fu and sexual yoga practices, the latter of which I've done with my current partner. I also should mention that I practice retention and cultivation and I have my own observations thru this, namely, when you don't emit semen often all of the energies seem reflected back into your body and everything gets more intense. I ejaculate once in awhile, i'm still young and my partner sometimes enjoys it, but when I'm older I plan to limit it even more; I've discussed this with her and she understands how we will ultimately move toward Karezza. Basically i believe that puberty / time naturally make a male more Yang and a woman more Yin, but because balance is quintessential in all things it's important to keep in touch with the other side. For some reason when I think of yang I think "upper" and yin I think "lower." Losing jing often seems to make the body more yang, and vice versa seems to help balance and dissipate. That's another thing, yin seems to disperse and yang to gather. Yin would be going for a walk or run, yang would be lifting weights. My experience has also been that one extreme causes a tendency toward the other in myself, I seem to have an internal sense when I am out of balance for my own health which is really what this is all about. Shooting in the dark a bit here, but any thoughts? Thanks
  24. I have had this problem for so many years. I have been to monks, I have been to teachers, I have seen my guru many times, nothing ever, ever, permanently fixes this problem. When I meditate, energy moves into my head, it builds into a giant ball of pressure, and then anger, delusion, confusion, and insanity start to arise as a result. For years I have tried to fix it, I have been taught so many techniques to fix it, nothing fixes this problem. When the pressure builds up in my head, it starts to hurt my heart and lungs below. I have felt like I was going to have a heart attack before. Every morning I wake up, there it is, the big ball of pressure stuck in my head, i meditate, it gets worse and worse. Everyday is another day of suffering and misery. Horrible horrible emotions constantly arising day after day due to this energy being stuck in my head. Is there anyone in this world that knows how to fix this problem? I haven't met one yet :\
  25. Please post your opinion on the topic. Debate conditions: 1. You are familiar with the energy cultivation and you understand that yes, it is possible to drain someone of their energy without their consent. 2. You understand this is not about "unconscious" vampiring, but rather direct "feeding" of yourself or your entities/egregors. /************/ Personal background: I get vampired by males all the time and it leads me to hone my defensive skills. Yet at the same time on a mental level it sends me into rage that someone can violate me in "public"*, and think it is appropriate. Because to me it feels like an acid being poured on me, it is painful like hell and its burning - thus, my reaction to outside people looks rather weird. Yet to the "vampire" I think it adds extra "fun". I am doing the defense by simply energetically chopping their dick off ( I know it's extreme, but when that much of a turbid Qi is attacking you, you have limited time to think about "love and light", about how they are in "internal pain" and all other new age BS). Their vampiring drains me significantly and I have certain symptoms later to know how bad "vampiring" was. Note, I do distinguish between a practitioner ( their weiqi field is a number one indicator if he is a practitioner or not) and some random sex strapped guy who just happen to see a girl. It is the first ones who make me wonder about their path. I.e. where in the book does it say random vampiring leads to enlightenment? If you are so skilled in energy stuff, why don't you get a good girl and practice with her? Why do this random escapades? *I am still sitting with this one. Should I be in rage that someone is hurting me, or should I train myself to "accept it" and thus eliminate rage? Looking forward to hear your experiences.
