What Is Khechari Mudra? – A Strange Old Yogic Practice

In this post we will discuss this very unique ancient yogic method called Khechari Mudra which makes you to apply pressure on a point in the the upper inside area of your mouth by stretching your tongue.

There are many things that we can learn from animals, even-though we are much developed and superior, still there are countless qualities that we can adopt from them to get better in life, this is why ancient yogis often used to formulate their spiritual practices based on what they learned from other species.

Can We Understand the Language of Animals?

Have you ever thought, what is the difference between the ways we humans communicate with each other from animals?

Apart from the common answer that we can talk but they can’t, if we can give a little more thought to it, we will come to realize that in an inner level all beings are communicating in the same manner.

Feelings! – We express our feelings when we communicate. Any response is always vibrational in nature because feelings are vibrations.

A vibration based thought (energy) comes in our mind and our brain converts it to a corresponding image and then further we make sound vibrations though our mouth which is received by the other person who’s brain can decode that information(through the knowledge of language) and his brain flashes an equivalent image in his mind! (All this happens within fraction of seconds) Continue reading

Law of Orderly Thinking-Effects of Random Thoughts

The universal law of thinking is a very fundamental law which decides the direction of our lives based on the dominant thoughts present in our minds.

While talking about the mind power, people put so much emphasis on the subconscious mind’s workings, however, what we fail to understand is that it is the ideas that we hold in our conscious mind that’s going to reach the inner mind.

Thoughts are powerful just by reminding yourself that over and over again you will be more cautious before next time you let your mind drift.

Organizing the thoughts by understanding the bad effects of random negative thinking is very important for a man who is interested in progress and development.

Mental blindness is the cause of failures and disappointments.Physical vision is an illusion; the actual act of seeing is done by the mind..Yes, we see what we believe so a person who believes “this world as an evil place” by the law of thinking that’s what will be shown to him by the universe.

This is why disciplining your thoughts is so important,as your life depends on it. Continue reading

Is It Good to Share Spiritual Experiences?

Every person who goes deeper into spiritual practices and soul searching comes across mystical experiences. We all have a logic based mind which keeps on interpreting everything on the basis of the old beliefs and pre-existing ideas.

So, whenever a person experiences something that is not in the alignment with his belief system, he starts to find logical reasons for what he has experienced and the next question arises in his mind that “is it good to share spiritual experiences?”. Well, I have an answer here for that…

Ineffable Spiritual Experiences

Like the way you cannot explain anyone how you feel about them in the most appropriate manner or in other words you cannot make them to feel the same way, likewise spiritual experiences are often hard to describe.

“Ineffable” means something that words cannot define and spiritual experiences fall into that category.

The problem in describing the mystical experiences is that you are not only unable to explain it but you yourself start to doubt it because you felt it(it was an emotional experience) and now you are logically trying to interpret it.

No matter how much experience or knowledge you have gained in your journey of spiritual growth, you will never be able to describe the strange incidents that you might have came across. Continue reading

We must know that everything in this world is changing continuously, and whatever good or bad results we are getting now are temporary. So, holding on to past is not a very good idea. Continue reading

You underestimate the power of laughter, don’t you? We all have heard about the mental benefits of laughter like it can heal people, reduce stress, clear mind, etc but actually it is much more than that what we think.

When we laugh we actually use suppressed negative energy in a positive way, this saves us from many mental as well as physical issues (suppressed energy can express itself as a disease or physical discomfort).

HOW CAN HUMOR CHANGE YOUR LIFE?

Whenever we meet or have a conversation with people, we are also dealing with them on a spiritual level.

People with positive vibrations bring others into the same vibration level and the opposite happens as well.
