Using Koan Meditation for Silencing the Mind

One of the good ways to silence the mind (and subsequently activate your consciousness) is through a technique known as the koans. This old Zen Buddhist method for meditation involves pondering on enigmatic phrases, questions or sentences that are without an answer, or that the mind has a difficult finding an answer to. However, “pondering” in this case does not refer to thinking about it, but rather shining the light of consciousness on it in the state of inner stillness. Continue reading

Preparing for Meditation

Before starting a meditation, regardless if just starting out with this practice or if already practicing it for some time, it is important to prepare for it. When novice in meditation starts practicing it, they don’t take enough time to do what is necessary to prepare for it. It is often thought that meditation is like any other hobby or activity in which you jump straight into from whatever else you were doing before. But meditation differs from that, in that it requires a proper atmosphere, and also a proper mental and emotional state. Continue reading

More About the Spiritual Ascension Course

Image by Gilbert William

The Spiritual Ascension course is the main activity offered here because it entails presenting the path to complete awakening in a direct and step-by-step way. The goal of this course is to help people to ascend spiritually in a very deep way. I have composed it based on many years of studying and practicing the Gnostic and Esoteric teachings. One of the main reasons why I composed it is to present the path to awakening in a way that is very straightforward and clear, so to help others to not get lost in too much theory and wonderings about whether they should do this or that.

Spiritual Courses and Workshops on Highest Quest Starting Soon

For the past few months I have been arranging a start of online spiritual activities in the format of courses and workshops, and am glad to announce now that they will start at the end of this month. I wanted to create an activity through which I would be able to explain about the way to spiritual development that I learned practicing the teachings of Samael Aun Weor and Belsebuub, which in their essence are of Gnostic origin. So with this goal in mind I composed the main format of passing down this instruction, which is through a course called “Spiritual Ascension”. As the name imply, it is about ascension, but of such kind that brings an incredible inner change and can lead a person towards spiritual mastery. Continue reading

A Practice Connecting to Beings of Light

The practice that I will describe here is a simple one, though quite powerful and profound. It is using principles of prayer, but it enhances it because it also involves invocation, visualization, pure intention, and sharp focus, in order to connect to beings of light. Such beings have through history been known by many names, such as angels, divine beings, seraphims, archangels, devas, higher beings, etc. People from many different religions petition to them when they are praying, though mostly wanting their help when they have problems in life. But we can also reach out to them in a more profound way, and that is through a meditative practice. Continue reading

Using Meditation as Aid for Clairvoyance and Astral Projection

Exercise of meditation is not a prerequisite for clairvoyance and astral projection, but can help achieving those abilities. When I was starting out with astral projection, I heard many talk about meditation as a help to astral travel and how it is necessary to practice meditation first for some time. I can understand why – when we work on silencing the mind, and if we go deeper with meditation and start to observe our thoughts and emotions (more on this technique in another post), we will see how this will carry on to other exercises that require concentration, such as astral projection. Then when the thoughts will come and go, it will be easier to stay detached from them and focus on a technique that leads to the precise point of the conscious astral split (which is when the body falls asleep and the mind stays awake).

The Purpose and Importance of Meditation

In today’s day and age, in the pace of life that tries to keep up with the modern system of living, where almost everything revolves around making money and survival, many have started questioning if this is the true way to be, if this is our true nature, and are turning towards silence. This can then eventually lead them to meditation.

There are also those, however, that the prompting guide for meditation is not only to ‘slow down’, but also to search for answers within themselves, for the mysteries of their Being.

Whatever the case may be, meditation comes to be almost as something that saves from falling into a dark pit. Many have said that without this tool they would still be stuck in the repetitive mechanical ways of life that mercilessly squeeze out the energy out of them. Continue reading
