The Trigger of Orgasms
By Kevin Williams, 2014
Many people are surprised to learn that NDEs and out-of-body states can be triggered by orgasms. Scientists know that the largest sex organ of the human body is the brain. Human brain wave patterns show distinct changes during orgasm which indicate the importance of the brain’s limbic system in the orgasms. Male and female brains demonstrate similar changes during orgasm, with brain activity scans showing a temporary decrease in brain activity of large parts of the cerebral cortex with normal or increased activity in the limbic areas of the brain.
Research has shown that the emotional centers of men’s and women’s brains also deactivate during orgasm, but to a lesser extent than in women. Brain scans on both sexes have shown that the pleasure centers of a man’s brain show more intense activity than in women during orgasm according to Judith Horstman in her book, The Scientific American Book of Love, Sex and the Brain. Traditional Eastern sexual rites, called Tantra Yoga, may have emerged from early Hindu Tantra as a means of triggering biochemical transformations in the body to create a heightened states of awareness in both partners achieved by “kundalini energy.” Continue reading
The Seven Chakras: Natural Development and Sustaining Consciousness
1. Root Chakra (Muladhara): The memory center, muladhara, located at the base of the spine, creates a consciousness of time through the powers of memory. A person lives predominantly in this chakra during the first seven years of life, acquiring language skills, relationships and cultural ways.
2. Sacral Chakra (Svadishthana): Once the ability to remember has been established, the natural consequence is reason, and from reason evolves the intellect. Reason is the manipulation of memorized information. We categorize it, edit it, rearrange it and store the results. We open naturally into this chakra between ages 8 and 14. This center controls the muladhara, as does each progressively higher chakra control those that lie below it. Continue reading
Early doctrines regarding the chakras
The idea of the subtle vital force (prana) and the channels along which it flows (nadis) appear in the earliest Upanishads (7th-8th century b.c.e.).
The heart was said to be the centre of the 72,000 nadis or subtle channels, and the place into which the senses are withdrawn during sleep. As with many ancient civilisations (e.g. Egypt, Homeric Greece), the heart was also considered the seat of waking consciousness.
But it was only in the later Upanishads – the earlier of which were composed somewhere between the 2nd century b.c.e. and the 2nd century c.e. – reference is first made to basic Tantric concepts such as chakras, mantras, and so on.
The Brahma-Upanishad mentions the four “places” occupied by the purusha (soul): the navel, heart, throat, and head. Following common tradition, each place is characterised by a particular state of consciousness: the navel (or the eye) waking consciousness, the heart dreamless sleep, the throat dreaming, and the head the “fourth” or transcendent state.

It has often been said that if you take one step towards God, then God will take a hundred steps towards you. We have so many ways to take a step towards the divine: prayer, meditation, chanting — in fact every kind of spiritual practice in every tradition. The Oneness Blessing is one way that the divine can reach out to mankind; it is a gift, a benediction of grace.
The Oneness Blessing results in a growth in consciousness. It is the phenomenon behind the work of Oneness. It is an act of energy transfer by touch or by the power of intent. Continue reading
Chakras are small vortexes that rest on the surface of the etheric double. Their two functions are to absorb and distribute prana to the etheric and physical bodies and to unite the fourth dimensional astral world with physical consciousness. Prana rushes into the center of the chakra from a right angle.
Chakras are like wheels with varying numbers of spokes. When the prana enters the center of the chakra it sets up a secondary force. This secondary force sweeps around the chakra with its characteristic wavelength creating an undulation, which catches the spokes and causes the chakra to spin. The more the chakra can assimilate prana, the faster it can spin, and the more the Continue reading
Preparation For Initiation
Swami Niranjanananda Saraswati
Many people ask for initiation into jigyasu sannyasa without knowing what it is. You have to be sincere in answering this question. If you went to a Christian monastery would you want to adopt their robes without knowing about the tradition or the discipline? Many people who ask for initiation have never been to an ashram before. They do not know about the sannyasa tradition or discipline. Just because something is freely available, they want it. I am not willing to give any form of sannyasa to such people. You may be prepared but the decision to give is mine, not yours. You have to be sure because there is also a negative aspect. If you do not adhere to the disciplines of this tradition of sannyasa, then you will suffer a lot psychically. I will not be responsible for your suffering. Continue reading
The first chakra is the root chakra. This chakra is located at the base of the spine.
The root chakra rules the lowest vibration of our body and has the slowest wavelength. There are four spokes, or petals. Four is the number of the square and foundations. The square is related to being honest, or giving a “square deal, the four energies of earth–earth, air, fire, and water, and the four directions. Four walls, four legs, or four wheels represent a strong foundation.
NOTE & MANTRA: The note for this chakra is C and the mantra is “lam” or “e” as in red. Chanting these mantras in the key of D while focusing our attention on this area of our body can enable us to more consciously access the first chakra. Continue reading
