Meditation

My experience in the course of meditation.

Everything mentioned below are my true experiences. I had worked in corporate sector at managerial position for quite some time . Later course of my career was working for US IT recruitment working in odd hours. That really put me in lot of pressure for a stress free environment and career option , that can help me to be in touch with my true essence.
So I decided to look in massage therapy and started my journey. I traveled across India and abroad to get the knowledge and expertise. I had extensive training in Thai Yoga Massage and Clinical Massage.

While working in metropolitan city life I was addicted to smoking. I really wanted to leave it. Although I had irregular sleep patterns due to working in shifts. I never had slept more than 4 hours. That lead towards heavy dizzy feeling all the time.

I had used practices like Inner Smile- from Mantak Chia, Qi-Gong, 8 Extraordinary meridian activation, Sun-Gazing (after reading instructions from HRM- Hiram Ratan Manik, Jal Netti, Nasagra Dristi- Meditating on the tip of the Nose, Pranayams like Bhrastika , KapalBhati and Anulom Vilom (Nadi Shodhan)


Jal Neti

It should be the first step , if anyone is seriously working on their yogic or spiritual journey. Jal Netti helps to cleanse sinus cavity , helps to keep the head cool, gives you that refreshing feeling all day in your head. Usually for smokers its like cessation of urge to smoke. You carry this refreshment all day and your tendency to smoke will decrease day by day. Even people working in night shifts can you this to feel fresh all day even with less than 3 hours of sleep.

It’s a wonderful practice for decalcification or purification, activation of your pineal gland. With almost an year of sun-gazing 3 months of Jalneti helped me start feeling the sensation of activating third eye. I have started getting a feeling of slight pressure or numbness between my eyebrows.

The ideal way to do it , use lukewarm water with a pinch of salt (so it taste like your tears). If you use cold water , the water might gush in your head and there might be chances of getting cold next day or might be fever later. I tried to do JalNeti for 12 years with cold water and I kept failing by getting cold and fever all the times. Anyways, now we have to use lukewarm water.
You take water from left nostrils and helps it to fall from right nostril , after following through nasal cavity. And again do it through right nostril and let it fall from left nostril following trough internal nasal cavity.

Now the most important step. Now blow out all water from your nose and deepest parts of your head. First slowy and later you might do it harder , like you are doing KapalBhati. You might get even internal nose secretions those are never cleaned all your life. Wipe your nose and woohaa, feel the results from second day onwards. J



After reading HRM posts on sun gazing , I did started sun gazing in progressive manner from Oct 2013. Its been really a hard work to get up every morning , with alarm on my mobile for sunrise every morning. But, its worthwhile to bath every morning in red  shining sun and feeling that warmth growing all across your body. On emotional level, I felt more centered and detached

Now , referring to the present moment , I can remember every single bit that contributed towards the sweet feeling I feel these days between my eye brows. From last few months I felt too much tension and vibrations in my head. While researching in this topic I decided to use Jal-Neti every other day. Its been used as ancient practice in yoga for cleansing sinus cavity. I realised after doing it you feel more oxygen gushing to your lungs with less frequent attacks of Cough and Cold. But remember to use lukewarm water for doing Jal-Neti. I tried to do it from last 12-15 years but everytime I did it, I used cold water and get caught with cold and fever. But after guidance from one of my associate I used hot water this time and woooohhhhh. I felt normal . So as per my experience only hot lukewarm water with salt .

From last 2 months I feel a slight pressure between my eye brows. I had never been regular with my Yoga or Pranayam , but yes I had been on and off doing sun gazing. I felt  about this feeling as headache and realized later its something else. After reading many articles , I came to know this feeling is due to growth in size of pineal gland, that is even associated activation of Agya Chakra.

When pineal starts activating, the felt feeling can be explained as something like these:


1. One of the first experiences is a headache or pressure in the center of the forehead. This sensation may also feel like it is originating from within, usually an inch or more beneath the surface of the forehead. This is a positive indication the pineal gland is awakening and beginning to function in a healthy manner. *Some people can experience a migraine lasting several hours. The severity of the side effects will depend on how atrophied your pineal gland is to begin with.

2. After the occurrence of headache or pressure in the forehead, you may wake up one morning with a throbbing or tingling sensation in your forehead; it may feel like a goosebump. The feeling may be very intense like something is there. The sensation of pulsing or throbbing will continue throughout the day. This is the final physiological event you will experience after opening up your 3rd eye. It indicates your pineal gland is awakened, functioning and alive. 


Kechari Mudra



In ancient texts Kechari Mudra had ben the essence of every meditation practices. You refer to Chinese Dao, Yogic Asanas each and every one gave prime importance to use your tongue as tool to connect your earthly essence with heavenly energy.

In Gorakhnath scriptures it even called as Nectar of Immortality .


copyright Hans Neukomm © 1997

Kechari Mudra is practiced by placing the tongue in the nasal cavity.  There is an energy line going through the center of  the tongue to stimulate the Ajna center and the 3rd ventricle of the brain.

"The Kechari Mudra is the "king of all yogic mudras." This is done thusly---Take the tongue and move it up to the roof of the mouth and back until it slips behind the soft palate. Push it further as it slips behind the nasopharynx. If you can accomplish this feat you can close off either nostril with the tongue from the inside!! As you push on up with the tip of the tongue, you will reach a bone protrusion that is just under the pituitary gland. The force which is rising upward flows off the end of the tongue, like flames under a pot on the stove. It is here that the final connection is made.  By exciting the pituitary gland, the pineal
gland begins to vibrate, and the two forces are magnetically drawn to unite in the region of the Spiritual eye.  This exercise requires some practice as it is not easy, but lights are experienced and a one-ness is felt

Stimulated pituitary gland has vast implications for the rejuvenation of the body. One of the secrets of the Gorakhnath yogi's, who emphasized the importance of the practice of kechari mudra, was kaya siddhi, extreme physical longevity.  The pituitary gland is called the "master gland" of the body because it controls the secretion of hormones.  These substances have a dramatic and broad range of effects on metabolism, growth and maturation, sexuality and reproduction and other important bodily functions.  As we age, we secrete less hormones. In the elderly, human growth human is reduced to trace amounts. Perhaps the Gorakhnath yogi's ability to rejuvenate the body and extend longevity lies in their ability to stimulate the pituitary gland through the practice of kechari mudra. Today, many older people are attempting to rejuvenate the body by taking supplements to stimulate the secretion of human growth hormone or are using human growth hormone replacement therapy.
There is also another aspect to kechari mudra. We have been taught as above, so below. If dramatic changes can occur in the physical body as a result of the stimulation of the pituitary gland through kechari mudra, then you can be sure that equally dramatic changes are also occurring in the pranamaya kosha (subtle body) and the circulation of the pranas because the physical body only reflects changes in the subtle body.  In fact, one the benefits of practicing kechari mudra is that the mind is quieted and it is easier to concentrate. In short, kechari mudra causes changes in the flow of prana, your consciousness, and your physical body. Through its practice, one may experience the elixir of life, amrita.
