Meditation on Subtle Body


wild-flowers-flowers-plant-macro-40797.jpegLet us bring the attention into the present moment. The goal is to come into awareness of our subtle Self, our energy being that lies within the gross body, and to really wake up to that identity that we have of subtle being.

“Focus on the breath,”  observing how in the breath there is body identity, the breather, breathing in the air and breathing out. Observe that human breathing. Open up your awareness to really observe how the body breathes. Hold the possibility of an energy identity in us, driving that breath, prana and apana.

Stay in breath awareness. Be conscious of the entire out breath, from the moment you begin to push the breath out with your intention, until the out breath is complete. Then pause for a moment and bring the in breath in. Follow that movement of breathing in and breathing out, but in an expanded view.

Stay completely aware of the spinal column and the brain, because you are observing now to wake up in the subtle body, that you can be constantly aware of the Kundalini energy, that evolutionary energy that is working within you. No expectations, no belief system is required because it is already existing within you. It is just that intention to see what we are not seeing.

Keep the focus on bindu awareness

Stay with the breath awareness and focus on that bindu centre between the eyebrows. Each time you breathe out, take your attention down the spinal column, right down to the root of the spine, and as you breathe in, up the spinal column, right up to the back of the neck and centre of the eyebrows. Keep the focus on that bindu awareness because by doing that, you will come into that silent space beyond thoughts.

Stay in the rhythm of the breath. Stay in the energy of the breath as you open up the belly, as you open up the chest, as you breathe with bindu awareness, and observe the experience of total being.

We are following an awakening process. “I want to wake up in this Maya. I want to experience more of who I am.” Hold this intention. Just work the breath intuitively until you begin to feel that the breath has a life of its own. It is energy. Observe what it is doing to the mind, what it is doing to the bindu, what it is doing to the emotional being, the heart, and what it is doing to the vital energy of the body.

Stay with a graceful breath, a gentle breath, a conscious breath, with the longing of the heart to wake up to more of what we are.  Sri Vasudeva Day 14 Forty days 2017. For full talk and meditation go to  www. blue-star.org

 

Seek the Eyes of Wisdom

Observe what the pause in the breath does; the pause at the end of the in-breath, the pause at the end of the out-breath.  It can hold you in a place of no beginning, no end. It can hold you in a place of timelessness. Your true Self is boundless and free.

O Creator of Maya, I seek the eyes of wisdom that I may understand your play. I seek the vision of the third eye.”

As you breathe into the centre of the eyebrows, as you focus on the brain, let your prayer be to see with the eyes of the wise.

“Let me see the play of your Maya.

Let me see the sport of your Maya, O Creator of Maya. I seek liberation in this play.” 

Asato Mā Sad Gamaya

Tamaso Mā Jyotir Gamaya

Mrityor Mā Amritam Gamaya

Show me the real; take away the unreal from my eyes. Remove the darkness that enshrouds me; let me see the Light. Lead me to immortal consciousness, and take away the consciousness of death.

Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti. 

Peace, Peace, Peace.

Using the Breath to Fill up with Prana


For the next little while I’d like to share some simple practices that I am doing to deepen my spiritual practice.

Today I want to expand my awareness of prana which is subtle energy and it’s effects on my physical and subtle energy body. I want to observe the impact on my mental and emotional being as I consciously take in more prana.

I am starting by doing conscious breathing; becoming more aware of the inhale and exhaled breath. Breathing in, pausing to observe what is happening in me, breathing out, pausing again to observe. I want more. I want to expand how much I inhale and how much I exhale so as I breathe in, when I feel full, I’m breathing in some more and as I breathe out when I feel empty I am seeking to empty some more.

I am visualizing the breath coming into my system flowing into all the energy channels of my body, a wonderfully cool and revitalizing breath. As the breath leaves I see it washing away all the toxins, all that has challenged me.

Now I am noticing the rhythm of the breath. Aah the rhythm gets smoother and more graceful the more I observe it. I stand back and let the breath happen on it’s own.

With this breath I connect with my Universe. As I breathe out I am sending thoughts of gratitude for all my blessings. I send a wish that all who are seeking may be supported in their journey, all who are challenged may feel comforted, supported. I breath in taking in the nourishment, feeling supported by that infinite Source of goodness and wisdom.

As I focus on the breath that moves through my system I am noticing that my mind is becoming more peaceful. I feel more mentally alert. My emotional energies seem to be naturally rejuvenating. My physical body seems more vital. Marvelous.

Did you try it with me? How was the exercise for you? I intend to do it at different locations today so I will see the impact near running water, in the garden, as I go for a walk, at my desk before I start work. I may do it for different lengths of time to suit the time I have available for it. Have a wonderful prana filled day :). Let me know how it goes.
