Guys!! Meditation is the real chocolate, the real diamond of human knowledge. It's not just sitting quietly in your bedroom , it's much, much more. I have been doing somatic practices for about a year now and I'm trying to do celibacy as well and I noticed very peculiar things happening inside of my nervous system that I wanted to share. So - against the advice of my teacher - I decided to charge full steam ahead and do some serious energy packing into my lower dan tien. Of course my psychic powers grew very rapidly but after 6 days, I felt like my LDT was leaking energy up and not able to really contain any more. This also produced a very hot flare like a fireball in my belly region. I ignored this and continued to pump on, despite every nerve in my body telling me I was gonna blow a fuse. Well, I fucked up majorly and somehow, my heart chakra got affected badly. The pain was so severe that I actually could not walk at all - every slight movement, even turning my head shot searing white hot pain throughout my chest region. I actually thought I was having a heart attack and was terrified that my techniques had somehow physically damaged me and I was going to die. I knew I had a lot of crap to work through in that chakra but I didn't really know I'd have to face it directly like that. I thought I was an open hearted person who could forgive, but I guess I was wrong. Anyway, I was started listening to some older videos from a tantric master and was half asleep and I had one of the most profound experiences I've ever felt in my entire life. He said something about releasing the tension/blockage in the heart, letting the energy depersonalize and merge with the greater cosmic consciousness. I did this instinctively and oh my God - I felt a piece being released from the pain in my heart center and go up my spine into the back of my neck and right at the back of my head. The second it hit was... Guys, listen to me, that shit was like an electric storm of absolute, total, complete bliss. I really can't put this into words but it was so intense my consciousness was shifting back and forth between the astral plane and the physical body and I was laughing like a complete madman in my energetic body while my physical body was as stiff as a corpse. Oh my goodness!!! It traveled up and down my spine before finally disappearing and leaving me feeling a LOT better. So then again today I was napping and then my third eye opened up way wider than usual. This alone is a pleasant but surprising feeling - like a cool wind just brushing over the spot between your eyebrows then it feels as clear as a hole in your brain. It scared me a bit but then I felt those heavenly sensations again. Those....sweet vibrations. They seemed to be concentrated in my forehead but then I noticed they were coming from deep in the middle of my brain (pineal gland??). To be honest man it felt so good that my muscles got stiff for a bit and I was actually left speechless for a good while after. Damn I love that shit, I rate it 10/10 - the best of feelings. one of my teachers told me he feels bliss basically for hrs and hrs per day and that it the feelings keep growing and begin to physically alter the body - but he's been celibate now for close to 5 years. Guys, please do yourself a big favor and start meditating. You have NO idea what you're missing out on.
