Kundalini Meditation that creates great feeling of bliss

If you are familiar with Kundalini, you will no doubt be familiar with the use of the Serpent to describe this energy and power. Kundalini is often equated to a coiled serpent lying asleep at the base of spine, which, then with the practice of Kundalini Yoga, is awakened and made to rise up to the crown of the head.


There are many Kundalini Yoga Meditations that focus on using the serpent to help awaken Kundalini.  Below I would like to detail one such potent meditation, for which I have to thank Swami Satyananda Saraswati for sharing it with the world.

Serpent Meditation To Awaken Kundalini

To practice this meditation follow the step by step instructions below.

1. Sit comfortably with your legs crossed. If you cannot sit with your legs crossed, then you may sit on a chair. If you are new to such meditations, give yourself some time in mastering it.

2. Have your spine straight, relax your stomach and then close your eyes.



3. Bring your attention to your breath and allow it naturally slow down. This may take a few minutes to happen.
4. Now bring your awareness to the base of your spine and visualize yourself breathing from there. As you inhale and exhale, visualize the breath coming into and leaving this area. Continue for a few minutes to establish your awareness there.
5. Once you feel concentrated enough, visualize a small black cylinder (lingam with the top cut off) at the base of spine.  And visualize a small baby red snake (not a cobra) coiled around this lingam looking up with the mouth open.
6. Once this picture is clear, visualize the serpent struggling to rise up the spine and straining in it's effort to do so. As it struggles to rise, it makes an intense hissing sound.


7. When the serpent rises, visualize its mouth to be as wide as your body and as it rises, it's body stretches up, but tail remains at the base of the spine coiled around the lingam.
8. This serpent's body will often rise and then fall back during the meditation, but the lingam coiled by the tail will stay fixed. Continue the meditation in this way.
9. Success with this meditation is indicated by the eruption or great feeling of bliss, with the rising of the serpent.  It can also happen that the lingam and serpent will move to various chakras along the spine, and if that was to happen continue the visualization using this new location as the base.

Serpent Meditation Summary:
The meditation above incorporates many important aspects of Kundalini Tantra and Kriya Yoga and it's practice can help in developing many of the important skills needed to practice such meditations. The meditation helps you develop the power of concentration, the power of visualization, chakra awareness, channel (nadi) awareness and refines your awareness.
In addition, it helps you develop the ability to bring your breath and prana into various parts of the body, allowing you to cleanses your chakra and nadi system. And finally, it gives you a taste of the power of Kundalini Shakti.One final note. Often when you do such meditations, you may not feel the effects right away, but as the meditation clears blockages in your chakras and opens up your energy pathways, at quiet times you may suddenly feel the effects of this kind of practice as energy is suddenly released and your mind opens up to new levels of consciousness.

  2. I don't think so. It is really hard to quantify something like happiness, but a number of recent scientific papers point to the fact that we are not getting any happier with rising incomes and better communications and technologies.

The Key to Longevity

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidneys are considered the “Root of Life” and when Chinese Medicine refers to an organ, it’s not just the physical organs themselves, but the entire Kidney meridian or energy channel. Think of your Kidney channel as the mega-bank for your life savings.  In this case, your life savings are your life force or Chi (Qi).

When you’re born, your parents make a deposit into your energy savings accountbased on how much energy they have to give.  If your parents are healthy and full of life, you’ll get a bigger deposit than someone whose parents are sickly or lacking in spirit.

Acupressure Points on your Feet for Headaches and Migraines

Let’s face it, headaches suck! While I often write eloquently (or so I think!), there’s no other way to describe the stabbing pain that shoots up through your eye, the vise-like grip that radiates from your head to your shoulders or the incessant throbbing that leaves you feeling cranky, crabby and foggy.



If it sounds like I've experienced some killer headaches, your assumption is 100% correct. I've had stabbing migraines, headaches that follow you to sleep and greet you on waking, dull achy head pain, and ocular migraines too.  Fortunately, I learned how to bring my body into balance so that I now can’t even remember when I last had a headache.

Home Remedies For Warts

Warts are small benign growths on the skin, caused by a variety of related, slow-acting viruses HPV (human papilloma virus). There are at least sixty known types of HPV. Warts may appear singly or in clusters. We will talk about three types of warts: Common warts, Plantar warts, and genital warts.
Common warts can be found anywhere on the body, but are most common on the hands, fingers elbows, forearms, knees, face, and the skin around the nails. Most often, they occur on skin that is expose to constant friction, trauma, or abrasion.

They can also occur on the larynx (the voice box) and cause hoarseness.


Common warts may be flat or raised, dry or moist, and have a rough and pitted surface that is either the same color as or slightly darker than the surrounding skin. They can be as small as a pinhead or as large as small bean. Highly contagious, the virus that causes common warts is acquired through breaks in the skin.
Common warts can spread if they picked, trimmed, bitten or touch…
