The state of meditation and the « oceanic feeling »

The state of meditation is inherent to human nature : we belong to the Universe and the whole Universe is within us : we are all made of star dust.

Our inner self is covered with many layers  hiding this deep reality.

I suggest you to plunge into your deep consciousness by turning your senses inward (Pratyahara) in order to access and appreciate your singular self (as in the « oceanic feeling » evoked by Romain Rolland).

 

5 vital breaths (Vayu) flow in the body, each one is related to one of the 5 elements :

1)     Apana Vayu (Earth): Inhale and fill the space around your navel , then exhale sending the air into your  legs

2)     Prana Vayu (Air): Inhale and fill the space around your navel, then exhale  sending the air to the middle of your forehead (Ajna chakra)

3)     Vyana Vayu (water): Inhale and fill the space in your  forehead,  then exhale  sending the air into your arms

4)     Samana Vayu (Fire): Inhale and  fill the space into your  shoulders,  then exhale sending the air to your navel

5)     Uddana Vayu (Ether): Inhale and fill the space around your navel , then exhale sending the air to the top of your head

Repeat 5, 7, 11 times and then focus on your higher state of consciousness : you will experience the perfect harmony with the universe and the strong unity with your true inner self. A natural state of meditation will arise.

I wish you to stay in tune with all the wonders that are in you.
