Meditations of Contemplation and Understanding
Right Understanding Will Immeasurably Improve Your LifeKundalini meditation is the process of cleansing the subconscious mind of impurities. It acts as an energy shower that washes away negativity, stress, anxiety, and tiredness accumulated during the day. And it charges you with fresh positive energy, lightness, and peace. The Kundalini meditation that I’m going to talk about in this article, is one of the most powerful and effective techniques developed by Osho.Kundalini Meditation BenefitsIf you’re wondering what’s so special in Kundalini meditation and if you should practice it, check out its benefits:It helps to get rid of toxic thoughts. Kundalini meditation helps to let go of anger, resentment and accept yourself as you are.This meditation creates positive habits. As you may know, our brains are made up of 80 billion nerve cells. They’re connected to each other. If you are overtaken today on the road, and you are upset, then tomorrow in the same situation you will be upset again. This creates stable connections between groups of neurons. Through these channels, neurons trigger neurotransmitters. When you are overtaken again, the lazy brain commands the neurotransmitters to “get upset.” And you’re upset. That’s how habits get stronger. But when you practice meditation regularly your brain receives only positive information and you have only positive thoughts. And as you remember, our positive thoughts create our positive reality!At the end of the stressful day, Kundalini meditation helps to remove tension and fatigue. Instead of blocking emotions you harmoniously reveal them and let them go.What Is Kundalini?Kundalini awakening symptoms imageBefore you start practicing this powerful meditation you should clearly understand what Kundalini is.Kundalini is a form of biological energy dormant in the human body. The Kundalini energy is present in the whole body but is concentrated mainly in the lower part of the spine, that is, in the genital area, transmitting vital energy to the offspring. This “snake energy” can be woken up, and through the spine and chakras transferred to the brain.Kundalini meditation awakens this powerful energy. When Kundalini awakens, the energy rises up the spine, reaches the top of your head and, figuratively speaking, connects you with the cosmos. It is often compared to a snake that crawls along the spinal column, skirting it along the entire length. In the dormant state, it nourishes the body with energy and in the awakened state, it fills the body with it.The Basis Of Kundalini MeditationOsho called Kundalini meditation “the shaking meditation.”Since ancient times, life has become more complicated. People have learned to create cities, grow food, live longer. We made life easier with technology, but there was a new problem. We, modern humans, don’t know how to relax without alcohol, drugs, pills, and smoking. Kundalini meditation solves this problem. Full of shaking and chaotic movements, it helps to literally relieve tension and accumulated problems.Osho advises to just allow the shaking to be, not to focus on it or trying to control it. It is enough to help the body to relax hands and feet and not to strain.Osho said that shaking is so important because when you’re shaking your shaking off the inner hardness, problems, tension, anxiety, and any negative emotions you’ve been blocking.Instructionkundalini mantra imageKundalini Meditation consists of four stages. The duration of meditation is 60 minutes, each part lasts 15 minutes. The best time to practice is in the evening.The interval of 15 minutes is not chosen by chance. Studying the works of Western psychologists and psychotherapists, Osho noticed that a person focuses on 15 minutes of activity. Further attention is scattered. Then Osho decided to take the interval of 15 minutes as a unit. It makes the practice easier, especially for beginners.For doing this, you can set an automatic timer before meditation with 4 intervals of 15 minutes.Osho created special music for Kundalini meditation, which many practitioners still like to use. Try meditating with or without music. Beginners are advised to start with music, it helps to concentrate on the practice.Now let’s take a closer look at each stage.Stage 1Shaking in the first stage helps to remove the inner blocks.Turn on the music, make sure no one bothers you. In a standing position start shaking. Let your body shake: arms, legs, neck, head, whole body. Your whole body should feel the movement and energy. Don’t think about how you look, it doesn’t matter. There are only you and your body movements. There are no right and wrong movements. The way the body moves is the right state. Eyes can be open or closed. It’s completely up to you.The Bottom LineIf the energy of Kundalini has not passed through the spine, it’s okay. Practice this meditation for 3-4 weeks every day to bring the release of energy closer. We cannot know when the Kundalini energy will wake up. If you want the Kundalini awakening so badly that you even get upset after the meditation that nothing has happened, then nothing will happen. Don’t be attached to the result. Just focus on the process and enjoy it!
Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go at the end of the day. Kundalini meditation lasts for one hour and has four stages; three with music, and the last with Kundalini acts like an energetic shower, softly shaking you free of your day and leaving you refreshed and mellow.
When you have mastered the conditions necessary to be in the state of meditation, you reach more expansive levels of meditation and gain the ability to integrate that experience into your daily activities.

Improved health through cleansing of our subtle system. Like our physical body needs good balanced food and adequate exercise for cleansing

Dance and celebrate life.
A great opportunity to celebrate life and your inner silence trough different techniques of meditation, a meeting between the east tradition of silent witnessing and the joy of dance and celebration of life with dynamic and conscious movements, more compatible with the western life style which needs to move before sitting in silence. The mind then becomes quiet more easily.
You can enjoy the beauty of your silence, and share with us the bliss of your love, and all your emotions. You will be free to express yourself in all possible ways and be accepted and loved as you are, in a friendly and protected atmosphere.
Meditation will bring you more and more intelligence, infinite intelligence, a radial intelligence. Meditation will make you more alive and sensitive; your life will become richer. Ordinarily you are violent towards others but the mind is very cunning – it can learn non-violence, it can preach non violence, then it becomes violent towards itself. And the violence that you do on your own self is respected by people because they have an idea that to be an ascetic is to be religious. That is sheer nonsense. God is not an ascetic, otherwise there would be no flowers, there would be no green trees, only desserts. God is not an ascetic, otherwise there would be no song in life, no dance in life – only cemeteries and cemeteries. God is not an ascetic: God enjoys life. God is more Epicurean than you can imagine. If you think about God, think in terms of Epicurus. God is a constant search for more and more happiness, joy, ecstasy. Remember that.
Always remember that if you are moving in the right direction, you will go on flowering
Kundalini Meditation is a gentle yet effective way to release all the accumulated stress.
Meditation accepts us just as we are-in both our tantrums and our bad habits, in our love and commitments and happiness. It allows us to have a more flexible identity because we learn to accept ourselves and all of our human experience with more tenderness and openness. We learn to accept the present moment with an open heart. Every moment is incredibly unique and fresh, and when we drop into the moment, as meditation allows us to do, we learn how to truly taste this tender and mysterious life that we share together.
