The Five Fold Detox Cleanse: Panchakarma

kwanyinThe 5,000-year old healing science of Ayurveda teaches that good health depends upon our body’s ability to metabolize all aspects of life, assimilating that which nurtures us and eliminating the rest. When we can’t completely digest our food, experiences, and emotions, toxic residue gets stored in our bodily tissue, creating imbalance and – ultimately – disease.

Thousands of years ago, the ancient Ayurvedic physicians developed panchakarma, an elegant cleansing process that releases physical and emotional toxins at the cellular level, restoring the body’s innate healing ability. This powerful treatment takes place over the course of several days or longer, giving the body adequate time to rest and experience the complete healing benefits.

How Does Panchakarma Work?
Panchakarma is a Sanskrit term that means “the five actions,” (pancha = five, and karma = action), referring to the five different cleansing and rejuvenating procedures described in the classic Ayurvedic textbooks.

As panchakarma has been adapted for use in the West, the therapies have evolved and modernized, the number of procedures included is not always five but varies according to an individual’s mind-body type and health concerns. At the MerKaBa panchakarma consists of the following steps:

Step One: Preparatory Procedures

Panchakarma begins with oleation, a process of applying and ingesting pure essential oils in order to loosen and mobilize accumulated toxins. This step includes supplementation with organic seeds, as well as soothing Ayurvedic massage treatments using herbalized oils. You can go a modified version of this step at home by performing a daily “self-abhy” massage (see instructions here).

Another vital aspect of this step is swedana, a Sanskrit word meaning “that which produces heat in the system.” Specific steam and warm oil therapies are used to heat the body. This process helps open the body’s circulation channels (srotas) and allows toxins to flow more easily from the tissues to the GI tract for elimination. Swedana also relaxes the body, releasing tension and allowing impurities to be eliminated through the sweat glands.

Step Two: Elimination and Release

Once the body’s toxins have been mobilized, gentle therapies are used to release them from the body. The treatment includes a sequence of daily bastis – a therapeutic process in which medicated oils and herbal preparations are used to flush toxins from the intestinal tract. Bastis are often referred to as enemas but actually offer many more healing benefits than a simple colon cleanse. During a basti, the herbalized oils enter the deeper tissues and eliminate fat-soluble toxins that can’t be dislodged with standard enemas.

This stage of panchakarma also includes nasya, an Ayurvedic treatment that gently cleanses the upper respiratory tract and sinuses. This soothing process uses pure herbalized oils to improve the flow of life energy and help you breathe freely and easily.

Step Three: Rejuvenation

The final stage of Panchakarma is rasayana,a term that means “that which is nourishing.” According to Ayurveda, once toxins have been cleansed, it is a critical time to begin replenishing the body with natural foods and herbs, revitalizing massage treatments, and healing practices such as meditation and yoga.

When and How Often Should I Do Panchakarma?

Panchakarma is the ultimate mind-body treatment for those who want to detoxify the body and strengthen the immune system. It is recommended on a seasonal basis, as well as when an individual feels out of balance or is experiencing a particular illness.

Experience Panchakarma at the MerKaBa Holistic Healing Sessions

Panchakarma is the cornerstone of the MerKaBa’s 10-day MerKaBa Panchakarma program, which combines foundational teachings in meditation, yoga, and meditation; daily Ayurvedic massage therapies; and an integrative mind-body consultation with a member of the medical staff. Every treatment is customized for an individual’s mind-body type, using specific oils and herbs to purify and nurture the entire physiology. The panchakarma process allows your body to release the physical and emotional toxins stored deep in the cells, tissues, and organs, leaving you feeling renewed and revitalized.

 

How to Perform a Self-Abhy Massage

Give Yourself a Nurturing Self-Abhy Massage

 

When stimulated through therapeutic touch or massage, the skin releases a pharmacy of healing chemicals that have health-promoting effects on the physiology. In addition to feeling good, regular massage and loving touch detoxifies the body’s tissues, increases circulation, calms the mind, and enhances immune function.

Giving yourself a daily self-abhy with aromatherapy massage oils is a deeply healing and deeply enjoyable Ayurvedic practice that activates the body’s inner pharmacy and slows the aging process. Depending upon your unique mind-body type (dosha), your massage technique can be gentle or more vigorous.

Step by Step

  1. Begin by running some hot water over the bottle to gently warm the oil.
  2. Pour a tablespoon of warm oil onto your scalp and vigorously work in the oil.
  3. Using your fingertips, vigorously massage your head and scalp with small circular strokes, as if you are shampooing.
  4. Move to your face and ears, massaging more gently.
  5. Using an open hand to create friction, massage both the front and back of the neck.
  6. Vigorously massage your arms, using a circular motion at the shoulders and elbows, and back-and-forth motions on the upper arms and forearms.
  7. When massaging your chest and stomach, use a gentle circular motion and a straight up-and-down motion over the breastbone.
  8. After applying a bit of oil to both hands, gently reach around to the back and spine and massage them as well as you can without straining.
  9. Vigorously massage your legs as you did your arms, using circular motions at the ankles and knees, back-and-forth motions on the long parts.
  10. After massaging your legs, spend extra time on your feet. Using the open part of your hand, massage vigorously back and forth over the soles of the feet.
  11. Keeping a thin, almost imperceptible film of oil on the body is considered very beneficial for toning the skin and warming the muscles throughout the day.

 

Kriya Yoga is an ancient system, the origin of which goes back to the age of Mahabharat. It is a well known fact that Lord Krishna himself refers to the science of Kriya Yoga in Bhagavat Gita. The ancient practice of Kriya Yoga which was lost in due course of time was revived once again in the modern world, by Lahiri Mahasaya (Yogiraj Shyama Charan Lahiri) who is a direct disciple of Sri Sri Mahavatar Babaji. Kriya Yoga as taught by Lahiri Mahasaya is strictly learnt through Guru-Disciple tradition with the secrecy of the process being well maintained. Lahiri Mahayasaya (Yogiraj Shyama Charan Lahiri) initiated Sri Tinkori Lahiri, Sri Yukteshwar Giri, Sri Panchanon Bhattacharya, Swami Pranabananda, Swami Kebalananda, Swami Keshabananda, Bhupendranath Sanyal into Kriya Yoga and many other people, who were truly interested in spiritual upliftment. It is through the instrumentality of Lahiri Mahasaya that ancient Kriya Yoga was revived once again in 19th century. In olden days, there were only very few people who knew about Kriya Yoga. The Kriyavans(one who practices Kriya) even when they lived among common men, maintained the secrecy of the sacred process and the practices so well that even their close friends/relatives would not know that they are kriyavans. Infact, as given by Swami Yoganandha in his “Autobiography of a Yogi”, he himself was not aware that his Guru Sri Yukteshwar Giri was a Kriya Yogi when he met him first. He came to know about it when he saw Lahiri Mahasaya’s picture in Sri Yukteshwar Giri’s room. This ancient practice was brought to limelight throughout the world by Paramahansa Yogananda through his book “Autobiography of a Yogi”. Kriya Yoga is the science of breath control through which the kriyavan can control the life force energy (prana) and stay in the “BEING” (detached completely from mind) state all the time. In such a state, he lives as per the universal command and is not attached with any karma. Surely, Kriya Yoga is a shortcut path to the ultimate goal. And as mentioned by Swami Yoganandha, it works like mathematics. So, it cannot fail. Click here to read more about the Science of Kriya Yoga to know how it works! The path of Maha Siddha Yoga! There are 3 kinds of spiritual path: 1. Path of Knowledge (Gyan Yog) – The one who follows this path has no desire. He believes that every action is a source of sadness and hence drops all action and knows only god. 2. Path of Action (Karm Yog) – This path is for those who cannot drop action and want to live a life of fulfillment and want to attain self-realization also. 3. Path of Devotion (Bhakti Yog) – This path is for those who are neutral. They are neither attached to the world nor can they practice renunciation of the world. This path emphasizes on devotion to god. The world is ephemeral. Mentally renounce the fruit of your action. It will lead you to the longing for god which is the nature of Bhakti Yoga. It will lead to self-realization. You cannot renounce action so continue to do the action till such time you attain total detachment from worldly affairs (Vairagya – Dispassion). Do Karm Yog till you get detached and it converts to Gyan Yog. Do not renounce Activity (Karma). Nothing is permanent. Virtuous act leads you to higher worlds. Even if you do good deeds which takes you to higher realms. Higher realms are meant only for enjoying the fruit of your good deeds on earth. Even if you attain the heavenly realms you have to come back to earthly realms to get the human body which is a vehicle for sadhna for attaining final release. Everyone who lives in higher realms desires human body because self-realization is attained only through this body by following the three spiritual paths. Even if you have the body of divine/celestial beings one cannot be liberated. Desire for liberation is ok but only thru Yoga, Bhakti or Gyan. Human body is a fit instrument for spiritual effort and to get release. Put human body in the proper practice of sadhna. Don’t miss this rare opportunity of human body. Human body is like a boat to cross the ocean of delusion. The boat will only move with favorable wind and that favorable wind and boat is rowed by the Guru. Sadhna is the favorable wind that the Guru gives you to sail. So people for their benefits should follow the path of either Ashtang Yog which includes the below: Yama/moral codes Niyama/self-purification and spiritual study Asana/posture Pranayama/breath control Pratyahara/sense control Dharana/intention Dhyana/meditation Samadhi/Contemplation leading to withdrawal of life force from the body. OR of Gyan Yog which is the path of intellectual discrimination. You know that the world is false and GOD is the only truth OR follow Bhakti Yog in which you can assume God in a form and pray with great devotion. It is difficult to control the mind. However mind can be controlled without fighting of the mind. Do not make the wavering of the mind a problem. By doing pranayama mind can come easily under control. This is the way to deal with the wavering mind. Never fight with it. You can choose the path that appeals to you and follow it. Path of Bhakti yog by having devotion and belief in god. Even though attracted by the world, goes through the experience by being detached knowing that it is temporary and the real enjoyment is self-realization. In this path although one is unable to give up their actions but have faith in god. Or by following the path of Gyan Yog in which one sees god in everything. They have love in their heart and love everything because they see god in it. Or by following the path of Karm yog and continue to do the actions (Karm) without expectation. Drop expectation!! Do your duty without desiring the fruit thereof. There are four types of human 1. Above Average – They know the world is illusionary and renounce desire and reject the world. They follow yoga and become yogis. 2. Average– They neither accept nor can they reject the world. They follow the path of devotion and worship devotedly and attain god. They are prayful. 3. Regular– They want to enjoy the world and are compassionate by serving god in others. 4. Below Average – They don’t believe in right or wrong. They only care about themselves regardless of the action. The people in this category come back again and again and don’t get released from the cycle of life and death. When their actions (karma) are exhausted they die and then depending on their good or bad deeds they come back again. All these paths will happen automatically in your sadhana when you follow the path of MahaYoga (physical discipline of Shaktipath meditation) after being initiated into Shaktipath meditation. Science of Kriya Yoga Kriya Yoga is an ancient yogic practice based on body, mind and prana involving pranayamam and subtle visualization. The word Kriya came from its Sanskrit root “Kri” which means “doing” or “action”. Yoga means “union”. Kriya Yoga is a yoga through which the union with the Infinite by performing or doing some specific action or rite. It was discovered by the ancient yogis that through breath control, the life force energy (prana) can be controlled and through this, the spiritual evolutionary process can be shortened by considerable amount of time. A Kriya Yogi can remain in a breathless state for hours together. In contradiction to forceful holding of breath, a Kriya yogi can hold his breath without any effort. It is his natural state of being and through this breath mastery, he is able to detach himself completely with mind and be in union with Infinite all the time. Such a Kriyaban (also known as Kriyavan) acts solely based on universal command and hence, is detached with any karmic burden associated with his actions. His spiritual evolution sky rockets in a very little time. The Kriya yogi lives in union with Atman all the time and is freed from egocentric living. He lives in higher spiritual plane and experiences bliss all the time. The process of Kriya Yoga initiation from Guru and the practice are respected with spiritual sacredness and are maintained secret. The initiation given by the Guru is the essence of Kriya Yoga without which the practice is not complete. Kriya Yoga as taught by Lahiri Mahasaya (Yogiraj Shyama Charan Lahiri) followed a strict Guru-Disciple relationship. Click here to read about the importance of Guru in Kriya Yoga. The practice has to be learnt through an authorized Kriya Yoga Gurus only. A person can become a Guru and initiate other people into Kriya Yoga only after getting consent from his Guru. With regular and ardent practice of Kriya and Guru’s blessings, a Kriya yogi can reach the ultimate goal even in a single life time or even within few decades or even lesser. Science of Kundalini Kundalini when awakened puts you in touch with five principles of the universe which are: 1- Kundalini 2- Mind 3- Life Force 4- Internal Divine Sound (Paradiol sound) 5- Point leading to God. It is very very necessary to know these because it leads you to what you think you are to what you really are (Manhood to Godhood). Whatever can be said about Kundalini is very less. Like Narayan (Residual Power) is sitting on the serpent god and his head has earth which contains forest, mountain, sea, and river, Kundalini is the Serpent God. The serpent is the foundation of the whole world. The same way Kundalini is the foundation of the yogic practices. Kundalini is regarded as feminine power and should be focused as very dear to you. The location is the coccyx. You have to focus on Kundalini Power located at the base of the spine in Mooladhar chakra. Serpent Power is like a coiled serpent. The coiled serpent is encircling the shivlinga. The coiled serpent is shinning and if you awaken this power and rise to the crown chakra you get free from birth and death. You get the ULTIMATE FREEDOM. It is self-effulgent and restless for reaching the crown. It shines like god if awakened by the power of the guru given mantra and enters the Sushumna power which is the center of the spine. Consider this as the power of Lord Vishnu. This is also the root cause of all modes. This generates three modes 1- Tamo – inert 2- Rajo – active 3- Satv – divine/meditative active qualities of nature. It is the cause and life-force in the body. You can experience this power by the power of Pranayama when the breath goes still. Yogis experience this when breath is held for long duration’s involuntarily. Kundalini is all in all in spirituality. It is the Summum Bonum of life. There are many forms of this power. This also has sound vibration and many other forms. It is almost impossible to describe all forms. This indescribable divine form can only be experience by self and cannot be explained. It is residing at the lotus (The Spinal Chakra) at Mooladhar. It has four petals and has four pranas (pranas- can be defined as specific duty of the body). It is the power that fulfills the fulfillment of all pure motives. The text on yoga describes the power of Kundalini in exciting ways. Normally this serpent power (soul power) is dormant (sleeping) at the base of the spine (Mooladhar Chakra). One who knows this power is free and one who doesn’t is bonded. So as long as you don’t experience this power you are in bondage. Yogis are well aware of this power t about through experience and therefore attain freedom. This energy is freedom conferring energy. The energy is described as though it is coiled serpent and is coiled 3.5 times and is sleeping. The 3.5 times represents the four states of awareness- waking, sleeping, dreaming and transcendental. When the Kundalini awakens it straightens to enter the Sushumna. When it enters it goes beyond the fourth state then it is in the Sushumna. All the three worlds sleep when the Kundalini is sleeping and all three worlds are awakened when Kundalini is awakened. Unless the Kundalini is awakened any effort to attain Knowledge of freedom is futile. The Mooladhar chakra located at the base of the spine is in the form of a triangle. When Kundalini is not awakened you are a Being but when it is awakened you are Shiva. Kundalini generates the prana and also the procreative fluids. Bindu is the primordial point and the power. The primordial point gives rise to the primordial sound (OM). Mind starts when the ingoing and outgoing of breath starts. The creation has happened. In the body Mooladhar is called the energy vortex. It fulfills all pure motives. This is the primary power which gives birth to the universe. It is the cause of creation of the universe. To know these intricate matters you have to depend on the grace of the guru. Those who perfectly know the power at the base of the spine is beyond ignorance, he knows the effulgent self. He has fulfilled the purpose of existence. One is released from all bondage by knowing and experiencing this power. If the guru is pleased why doubt liberation. There are different names given in the scriptures such as: Sushumna, Kundalini, Saraswati, Primary power. This is also known as Mahamaya (the great illusion), Mahalakshmi (Because it fulfills all of your desires), Mahadevi (Divine feminine power), Saraswati (Gives you knowledge to tear the veil) and un-manifested primary power. This is the root cause of your existence. The universe is founded on the basis of this power. MahaYoga in Vedas There is no proof needed of these utterances. They are the Ultimate Truth. They are 1- Dharm- Right Living 2- Arth- Right means of livelihood 3- Kaam- Right kind of desires and fulfillment 4- Moksha- Release of all bondages Veda reveals the divine knowledge of these areas. They are words of God and beyond all doubts. They are self-proven. It is the treasury of knowledge of the art of living. The knowledge of self-realization is derived from Vedas. The path of self-realization (Shaktipath, Mahayoga) is based on Vedic principles. Kundalini Shakti is based on Mahayoga. The mind is based on Kundalini. The ephemeral world is based on mind. The mastery of mind is the mastery of life force. If you can command the power you can command the three worlds. Without awakening the Kundalini there is no way to be an adept in Bhakti, Yoga or Gyan. You should expand the power of soul. Without Deeksha There is no realized knowledge To awaken this subtle power of Kundalini there is the need of Guru. Therefore all scriptures indicate the need of Guru (Master). The self effort does not give result as fast as the effort after having the Guru. The development in all areas of life is only possible when you have the grace of the Guru. One has to have implicit faith in the guru and remain joyful. This state leads to fearlessness and a state of beyond all doubts. Just as a medical doctor for a person who is ill. When he has a doctor he is free from the fear of death. Similarly with Guru on the path of self-realization one achieves liberation. Without having initiation from a guru one cannot have any success in activities like – repetition of mantra, austerities, self-knowledge, meditation, practice of yoga, devotion, activities of world, selfless activities. Without Deeksha right way of living is not possible. Therefore, the necessity of Deeksha in any success spiritually or worldly. One has to go to a Guru for purpose of initiation. Without Deeksha neither activities are fulfilled nor liberation possible. Make the best possible efforts to meet the guru and get initiation. The necessity of Deeksha for awakening the Kundalini Since the serpent power is not awake from time immemorial the Guru is needed to awaken the Kundalini. The real joy is not at all possible without a spiritual initiation. The best of spiritual effort such as repetition of mantra, austerities, self-knowledge, meditation, practice of yoga, devotion, activities of world, selfless activities are fruitless without awakening the Kundalini. The real joy has nothing to do with the imagined or initiated joy by any conscious activity. The energy which is responsible for real freedom and joy is asleep. To awaken it Deeksha is the only way. There will be a balance in life in all activities as a result of Deeksha. There will be a self-soul satisfaction as a result of the impressions of good deeds of past life. It will be quite evident after Deeksha. The same very world will appear joyful after Deeksha. You think that the world is a bed of thorns and emit negativity. You say that the world is a jail and is full of misery and are fearful. The world is not a bed of thorns but a bed of roses for the awakened person. It is the effect of the awakening of the energy. In the world we are suppose to experience pleasure and pain. For the uninitiated and unwise the world is nest of trouble and full of misery but for the awakened it is the play of the lord. For the man of self-realization the world reveals itself as divine. For the blind everything is full of darkness and for the one blessed everything is full of light. If there were no world there can be no human birth possible. If there is no world there is no question of self-knowledge as well. It is this very world that makes you experience the divine knowledge. As long as Kundalini is asleep it is impossible to even get a minute success in any effort such as repetition of mantra, austerities, self-knowledge, meditation, practice of yoga, devotion, activities of world, selfless activities. Due of good deeds of previous life resulting in grace of Guru everything you do bears fruits. Therefore Guru’s grace is essential. This very world that appears as a prison becomes a free field of joy. The awakening of Kundalini is the panacea of all ills. This is the master medicine. Healthy person has a healthy mind and body. The illusion of pleasure and pain will be unveiled because of the ancient disease. This ancient disease is nothing but the sleeping Kundalini. There the need to awaken it and go beyond the veils of Maya or illusion. There will be perpetual joy.   Spiritual Sadhana Having doubts or questions on Kriya Yoga ?

The Unique MerKaBa Method

“Truth is simple. If it was complicated everyone would understand it.” – Anonymous The MerKaBa Method is simple to use. In our highly complex world, you will find it is a huge relief to work with a technique that is elegantly simple. It often takes a few days for your mind to accept that true relief from even your most difficult problems can be this simple to achieve. It works in the moment. Most emotionally based techniques require you to discover why you feel the way you do before allowing yourself to let go. With The MerKaBa Method, you go right to the point of letting go each time and if insights are required they occur naturally after you are free from the pain. This allows you to let go moment to moment through your day when you need the relief the most. There is no need to dwell on the past. With The MerKaBa Method, there is no need to go back into your past and re-experience painful experiences, journal about them, discuss them, often at length, and generally spend a lot of time wanting to figure the problem out. You simple let go and feel better now. The results are lasting and accumulate over time. Most self-improvement techniques and seminars produce decreasing results over time. The scientifically proven MerKaBa Method has the opposite effect. It is universally applicable. Most self-improvement techniques only focus on a single problem, whereas The MerKaBa Method shows participants how to let go of any problem that has been in any way influenced by how they feel. Works equally well for both men and women. Most self-improvement techniques are too touchy-feely for the majority of men. Seventy percent of self-improvement book buyers and seminar participants are women. Because the approach of The MerKaBa Method balances both the left and right hemispheres of the brain—as well as the heart and head—it appeals equally to men and women. What You Get: You will find that as you work with The MerKaBa Method, it will give you much more than you bargained for or even dreamed possible. All the tremendous progress you’ll make, and all the benefits you’ll receive will come—and come rapidly—when you apply what you learn in The MerKaBa Method. What happens may surprise you: Be aware, however, that sometimes there can be surprises: pleasant ones, to be sure, but nonetheless unexpected. For instance, the specific area of your life that you would like to change with The MerKaBa Method, may not change as quickly as you would like. Or, if you are like most people, it may happen surprisingly fast. So fast in fact that you will have trouble at first accepting it is even possible. To explain this another way, let’s say an individual turns to The MerKaBa Method specifically to open themselves to greater financial success. They listen to the audio program attentively, dutifully use the workbook, and yet find no immediate financial gain. Instead, they may initially find themselves gaining greater health along with a feeling of greater well-being, and then perhaps discover their personal relationships get dramatically better and more healthy and satisfying. After that, they might experience heightened abilities and comfort in the workplace. And only then, they may finally allow themselves to achieve the financial success they were looking for. The MerKaBa Method will definitely bring about important changes in your life. It’s just that occasionally those changes may not arrive in exactly the order you hoped for. And your friends might notice the changes in you before you do. Release even long-standing problems. Over time, as you use the MerKaBa Method, you’ll find that even long-standing problems will clear up. However, you may also find yourself going back occasionally to old patterns—to what seems comfortable. This is completely natural. You will find that as you use the MerKaBa Method, when you do catch yourself having done something you know you shouldn’t have, you can always release afterwards. Then, over time, as you keep releasing, you’ll catch yourself right in the middle of doing that thing that you know you shouldn’t be doing. As you release, you’ll be able to stop the behaviour right in the middle of doing it. Soon you’ll find that you will be about to do that thing again, and you will release instead, not needing to go further with the old pattern. And then, as you keep releasing, you will reach a point where the old pattern no longer even arises. All you need to do is do your best at applying the Method in your life, and the rest will take care of itself. Become more aware and more successful: You will also notice that as you use this process, you will become more aware of your feelings, even if you have difficulty identifying your feelings now. This is a sign of progress, and it means that you are ready to release many emotions that you were either suppressing or avoiding. The good news is that you will find it easier and easier to let go the more you use this process, which is what creates the safety for you to experience your feelings more deeply. You will also feel the good feelings more fully, and will gain even more enjoyment and aliveness in everything you do. As you continue to use The MerKaBa Method, you will become more adept at using it, and the results will greatly accelerate over time. You will quickly reach a point where releasing becomes completely second nature. As natural, in fact, as breathing is to you now. How It Works – A Sample Releasing Process The following explanation and process will give you a small taste of what The MerKaBa Method can do for you. Remember, this is just a sample. For you to get maximum benefit and sustained results, we highly recommend that you work with our audio program and/or attend one of our seminars. There are three ways to approach the process of releasing, and they all lead to the same result: liberating your natural ability to let go of any unwanted emotion on the spot, and allowing some of the suppressed energy in your subconscious to dissipate. The first way is by choosing to let go of the unwanted feeling. The second way is to welcome the feeling, to allow the emotion just to be. The third way is to dive into the very core of the emotion. A simple exercise Let me explain by asking you to participate in a simple exercise. Pick up a pen, a pencil, or some small object that you would be willing to drop without giving it a second thought. Now, hold it in front of you and really grip it tightly. Pretend this is one of your limiting feelings and that your hand represents your gut or your consciousness. If you held the object long enough, this would start to feel uncomfortable yet familiar. Now, open your hand and roll the object around in it. Notice that you are the one holding on to it; it is not attached to your hand. The same is true with your feelings, too. Your feelings are as attached to you as this object is attached to your hand. We hold on to our feelings and forget that we are holding on to them. It’s even in our language. When we feel angry or sad, we don’t usually say, “I feel angry,” or, “I feel sad.” We say, “I am angry,” or, “I am sad.” Without realizing it, we are misidentifying that we are the feeling. Often, we believe a feeling is holding on to us. This is not true…we are always in control and just don’t know it. Now, let the object go. What happened? You let go of the object, and it dropped to the floor. Was that hard? Of course not. That’s what we mean when we say “let go.” You can do the same thing with any emotion: choose to let it go. Sticking with this same analogy: If you walked around with your hand open, wouldn’t it be very difficult to hold on to the pen or other object you’re holding? Likewise, when you allow or welcome a feeling, you are opening your consciousness, and this enables the feeling to drop away all by itself—like the clouds passing in the sky or smoke passing up a chimney with the flue open. It is as though you are removing the lid from a pressure cooker. Now, if you took the same object—a pencil, pen, or pebble—and magnified it large enough, it would appear more and more like empty space. You would be looking into the gaps between the molecules and atoms. When you dive into the very core of a feeling, you will observe a comparable phenomenon: nothing is really there. As you master the process of releasing, you will discover that even your deepest feelings are just on the surface. At the core you are empty, silent, and at peace—not in the pain and darkness that most of us would assume. In fact, even our most extreme feelings have only as much substance as a soap bubble. And you know what happens when you poke your finger into a soap bubble: it pops. That’s exactly what happens when you dive into the core of a feeling. Please keep these three analogies in mind as we go through the releasing process together. Releasing will help you to free yourself from all of your unwanted patterns of behavior, thought, and feeling. All that is required from you is being as open as you can be to the process. Releasing will free you to access clearer thinking, yet it is not a thinking process. Although it will help you to access heightened creativity, you don’t need to be particularly creative to be effective at doing it. You will get the most out of the process of releasing the more you allow yourself to see, hear, and feel it working, rather than by thinking about how and why it works. Lead, as best you can, with your heart, not your head. If you find yourself getting a little stuck in trying to figure it out, you can use the identical process to let go of “wanting to figure it out.” Guaranteed, as you work with this process, you will understand it more fully by having the direct experience of doing it. So here we go. Choosing to Let Go Make yourself comfortable and focus inwardly. Your eyes may be open or closed. Step 1: Focus on an issue that you would like to feel better about, and then allow yourself to feel whatever you are feeling in this moment. This doesn’t have to be a strong feeling. In fact, you can even check on how you feel about this exercise and what you want to get from it. Just welcome the feeling and allow it to be as fully or as best you can. This instruction may seem simplistic, but it needs to be. Most of us live in our thoughts, pictures, and stories about the past and the future, rather than being aware of how we actually feel in this moment. The only time that we can actually do anything about the way we feel (and, for that matter, about our businesses or our lives) is NOW. You don’t need to wait for a feeling to be strong before you let it go. In fact, if you are feeling numb, flat, blank, cut off, or empty inside, those are feelings that can be let go of just as easily as the more recognizable ones. Simply do the best you can. The more you work with this process, the easier it will be for you to identify what you are feeling. Step 2: Ask yourself one of the following three questions: Could I let this feeling go? Could I allow this feeling to be here? Could I welcome this feeling? These questions are merely asking you if it is possible to take this action. “Yes” or “no” are both acceptable answers. You will often let go even if you say “no.” As best you can, answer the question that you choose with a minimum of thought, staying away from second-guessing yourself or getting into an internal debate about the merits of that action or its consequences. All the questions used in this process are deliberately simple. They are not important in and of themselves but are designed to point you to the experience of letting go, to the experience of stopping holding on. Go on to Step 3 no matter how you answered the first question. Step 3: No matter which question you started with, ask yourself this simple question: Would I? In other words: Am I willing to let go? Again, stay away from debate as best you can. Also remember that you are always doing this process for yourself—for the purpose of gaining your own freedom and clarity. It doesn’t matter whether the feeling is justified, long-standing, or right. If the answer is “no,” or if you are not sure, ask yourself: “Would I rather have this feeling, or would I rather be free?” Even if the answer is still “no,” go on to Step 4. Step 4: Ask yourself this simpler question: When? This is an invitation to just let it go NOW. You may find yourself easily letting go. Remember that letting go is a decision you can make any time you choose. Step 5: Repeat the preceding four steps as often as needed until you feel free of that particular feeling. You will probably find yourself letting go a little more on each step of the process. The results at first may be quite subtle. Very quickly, if you are persistent, the results will get more and more noticeable. You may find that you have layers of feelings about a particular topic. However, what you let go of is gone for good. How can The MerKaBa Method help Me? One of the ways that The MerKaBa Method is unique is in its universal applicability. The list that follows represents just some of the areas that can receive benefit from this one simple, yet powerful, tool. A question that comes up for almost everyone when they learn about how many areas The MerKaBa Method can dramatically improve in their life is: How could one tool do all this? Frankly, it’s very simple. We are all either our own worst enemy or our own best friend. We are constantly sabotaging our health, happiness and success unintentionally due to our unresolved thinking, beliefs and attitudes. Yet even when we know a thought, belief or attitude is not serving us, most of us find it very difficult to change it or let it go. The reason for this problem is very simple: our emotions color, create, and lock these limitations in place, making the limitations supposedly “real.” It is our emotions that either put us into action or prevent us from acting. The MerKaBa Method will show you how to master your emotions, thereby mastering how you think and act. That is the short explanation of why this one technique can influence all of the following diverse areas: Bad Habit Addiction: Are you having trouble giving up cigarettes, gambling, over-spending, sweets, or any other bad habit? Caretaker: Who takes care of the caretaker? Drugs and Alcohol: Are drugs or alcohol standing in your way to optimal well-being? Eating Disorder: Do you suffer from anorexia, bulimia, laxative abuse or any other eating disorder? Emotional Trauma: Are memories of trauma or abuse wreaking havoc in your life? Financial Abundance: Do you have trouble with money or other financial issues? Freedom from Depression: Are you having trouble coping with your life? Do you often feel sad or burdened? Grief: Do you feel as if you will never find relief from the deep sense of loss of a loved one? Or any other loss such as the loss of a job or a significant relationship in your life? Gambling: Is your urge to gamble getting stronger? Low Self-Esteem: Do you feel like you’re not good enough, like you don’t deserve to be happy? Obsessive Compulsive Disorder: OCD does not have to run your life. People Pleaser: Are you so focused on making other people happy that you neglect your own happiness? Relationships: Could the relationships in your life use some improvement? Shame/Guilt: Are you burdened with a sense of responsibility for mistakes you can’t correct? Sleep and Energy: Do you have trouble sleeping at night? Do you experience lethargy and low energy during the day? Weight Loss and Overeating: Do you have trouble sticking to a diet or exercise program and just can’t seem to lose weight? Do you have trouble saying no to your favourite foods?   MerKaBa___Gateway

Spiritual Energy Exchange And Money Matters

Sexual energy is life force energy. It creates new life. If you aren’t creating babies, you need to be directing that energy somewhere. If you don’t, it will invert back on you in all sorts of destructive ways, creating everything from depression to weight gain to health problems to zero cash flow.

You have the creative power of the universe at your genitals. Use it.

Here’s how:

1) Have regular sex. If not with a partner, then with yourself. Set up weekly sex dates, or several times a week. Hey, even try a 30-day sex challenge to kick things off. This energy needs to be kept moving, or it will get stuck and implode.
