Seeking advice, spiritual journey

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

i would like to ask for advices about my spiritual journey (18 years old currently).

 

In past i've been living crazy life - smoking cigarettes/weed, drinking alcohols, masturbating daily -> my life was slowly getting out of balance and i began feeling low and unconfident, i was stressing a lot so i was hit by several diseases - stomach, skin, hair loss.

 

At one point in my life i did not know what to do, i knew i could not continue the way, i was stressing too much about my hair and i just could not enjoy life anymore.

 

Then i started researching internet for advices about hair loss, i've found lot of information about healthy diet, excessive masturbation and so on. (that pointed me to the right direction, so i stopped smoking as i wanted to heal my body)

 

My journey has began, i've started eating healthy, i was trying to not masturbate daily and it got to one point where i was meditating 20 minutes a day, feeling great, eating healthy, exercising and i was just feeling good.

 

I've also realized, that my hair loss was actually good, because it has pointed me into the right direction and i do not want to know where would i end without it.

 

For past 7 months, i did not masturbate and ejaculate at all, but i've had at least 2 nocturnal emissions (wet dreams) a month, usually each 14 days.

You have been working the extremes. There is a much better middle road.  Relax more, worry less.  At eighteen years old, losing semen as much as once a week makes no difference in your development at all.  Maybe after five or ten years of consistent/productive awareness and energy work it might be something to look into. Getting rid of the alcohol,cigarettes, pot was a major good move though.

If a teacher is advocating sexual practices or restraints, early on in their particular discipline, you should probably view them with an open but cautious mind.  I would recommend finding a local very reputable Tai Chi teacher.  If you can learn a system well, under the personal direction of a good teacher, it will change your life, for the good, forever.  The key to everything is focused, RELAXED, attention.
