A Deeper Meaning Behind “Expansion of Consciousness”

An image of the Buddha sitting in meditation, with large consciousness permanently expanded from his head.

In the last few decades there has been a lot of talk in various spiritual circles about expansion of consciousness; that in order to be spiritual, the person needs to expand their consciousness. Many people say that by using meditation or some other spiritual practices, that they have expanded their consciousness. If you would to inquire more about what they mean by this, often time you would get an answer that they have become more aware in daily life and more conscious of the things that previously they were not.

Deep States of Relaxation: Their Spiritual and Physical Benefits

On the path of self-discovery, many people take up meditative mystical practices in order to reach deeper information about reality of themselves and the Universe, so to discover things that go beyond what their physical senses can perceive. Often time such practices involve relaxing the physical body so that there is no tension, and therefore no distraction. In this process of learning a new practice, many do not go deep enough into that stage of relaxation, and they miss out on enormous benefits that such practice can give them. Continue reading

Samael Aun Weor’s Mirror Practice to Strengthen Your Soul

Some time ago I encountered this interesting practice/petition from a book called Introduction to Gnosis by Samael Aun Weor. In it he describes how to get in closer contact with ones own soul, and how to try strengthening it with a petition that is done in front of a mirror. This can be very useful if we struggle in our inner work, when our will is succumbing to that of the egos, when it seems to us that we are not ascending in a proper way, or that we are stagnant, unable to lift up from the ground. It seems that often time our work needs an extra boost, beyond the Three Keys for liberation. An aid can then be found in petitons, working with energies as explained by awakened masters, different sorts of prayers, and overall being open to receive a lot of help. The petition from the book goes like this: Continue reading

Experience of Clairvoyance during “Om Namah Shivaya” mantra

It is said that spiritual perceptions and experiences of such kind are gifts from divine beings, as well as our own Being. These type of experiences can come when we least expect them, giving us a flavour of our latent potential and helping us peak “beyond the veil”. This is what happened to me during my time in Canada. I spent about a week in a retreat center, somewhere in the forests of Ontario. The area was gorgeous with many lakes, beautiful lush forests, and a rich animal life. During one of the mornings we gathered in the practice room (which was actually a tent) to chant the mantra Om Namah Shivaya. Continue reading

Transformative Effects of Out of Body Experiences

It is not unknown that those who have had out of body experiences (OBE), regardless of how they occurred, have had an experience that changed them in some way. It is also not uncommon that these types of experiences can change the course of people’s lives. One of a famous case of such occurrence was Robert Monroe, one of the pioneers in the research on out of body experiences. He was a regular citizen, not really standing out from the rest, until he started experiencing spontaneous OBEs in his 50’s. This changed the course of his life, and he had these experiences frequently until the end of his life. He said both in his books and in interviews that out of body experiences completely changed his life, enhancing it for the better. Continue reading

Using Winter To Deepen Practices and Ground in Consciousness

Since early on I felt that winter is a great time to go deeper with practices, and to apply more efforts into making them work. Traditionally in civilization, winter time was used to rest and to prepare for the new season. This was especially so in agriculture line of work, but also in other areas that people worked in. People were preparing for winter during autumn, and then during winter they did very little work and spent most of their time resting. Everything slowed down in winter – people, animals, and nature itself. In such way, nature shows us that, as winter is a time when everything stays still and is at the point of ‘death’, that we too should slow down. 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.
