When you are reading information from spiritual leaders, please make sure you recognize the words may only be fitting a moment in time and from an individual’s perspective at that particular moment. This is why many spiritual leaders did not record; they knew people would hang on to their words and not search for the meanings. Meanings will change in different times, places, and with different perspectives.
Each person should look for truth and its meaning within, not from without. If you continue to search books for answers, or question others as to what to believe or know, you will never learn to find the answers from within. The answers are there. They are always there.
Other people can give you support or say, “This is what I did but it may or may not work for you. Your path is different from mine.”
So, look within. Trust what you find.
If you do not learn this, people will continue to be led by others in directions that are not theirs. They will end up always being controlled.
If people believe in themselves, they will be equal because they know they are. They will know themselves, trust themselves, and believe in their choices.
This article is a summary of the "The Nine Needs" by David Gregg from the Michael Teaching Website. There are so many good recommendations which may help someone understand what and why he/she may be driven towards certain behaviors or actions. I thought this information was valuable for those who are trying to understand more about who they are and why their life is the way it is. The information can help someone understand why he/she is different from their friends or family or why their life, as well as their happiness and sense of peace and comfort, may not follow the normal expectations or "rules."
Nine Universal Needs
According to Michael, a mid-causal teacher, there are nine universal needs that act as unconscious motivators through out our lives. These needs can inspire and drive us toward certain directions. They help us to grow, learn, and evolve based on the life lessons we need for this incarnation. These nine universal needs are Security, Adventure, Freedom, Expansion, Power, Expression, Acceptance, Communion, and Exchange.
These needs can wield an enormous impact in our lives, instilling a remarkable sense of inner peace if satisfied, but if unmet, it will feel like a hunger that no amount of food can touch. The result is an inexplicable feeling of sadness if it is not properly nourished.
Being Happy vs Being Discontented
Consequently, when our needs are met we're generally happy with the shape and focus of our lives, but when they're blocked, a cloud of discontentment darkens every corner of our existence. Needs are so influential that if they are consistently unmet we'll find ourselves trapped in a downward spiral of dissatisfaction and extreme frustration; these needs will not be ignored!
We experience all of the needs in certain degrees, but there will be three primary needs that will remain fairly consistent throughout a lifetime. In later years the needs become more important and are used to help us accomplish our life task. At this point the needs may slightly change in priority, thus charting a better course through life as our life task progresses. These needs will then help to steer us away from too many obstacles.
Which Three Needs Resonate with You?
Each of the nine needs has qualities that have more negative qualities as well as having more positive qualities on the Need scale. David Greg recommends determining which three Needs resonate the strongest with you and then examine if they are being satisfied or not. If not, ask yourself how you can change that and move more toward the positive side of the need scale?
The idea is to determine which top three needs you most closely identify with. Those will be the Needs which probably are what motivates you and is how you make decisions. You can then see where you may fit within the scale. Are you more towards the negative or the positive side of that Need? You can then use this information to help guide you towards to get closer to the more positive side of that Need.
After you become proficient in projecting and traveling to the Astral level of the Tao, you may want to consider projecting to other levels of the Tao. As you may know, there are at least seven levels of the Tao and it is possible to project and travel to each of these levels.
The Process of Exploring the Levels of the Tao
The process is the same as in astral travel:
While traveling you program into your mind or soul before hand so as to have a purpose. Usually it is to ask a question or to receive an insight to a problem, or just to experience travel.
You can train yourself to travel and also train yourself to remember. For those who are seeking spiritual learning or spiritual experience, astral travel is the better way of learning. You gain insight and knowledge when you travel, about yourself and as well as life itself.
Seek Out Your Spiritual Guide
I would suggest that when you are ready for these experiences, to first seek out a Spiritual Guide to accompany you on these projections. I have found that by asking to meet someone from a certain level, someone will reach out to you. For me, the easiest connections have been first meeting in a meditation, but you may find another method that works for you.
There are many, many options of exploring and learning. Exploring all the levels of the Tao, and even beyond the Tao, are available options.
There are many expressions of how spirituality and spiritual energy is presented to us. For example, food can be seen as an expression of spirituality. It is an expression by the earth. How food is prepared and served may be a spiritual expression. It is an individual’s expression. The enhancement and use of the senses, taste, smell, texture, color, and its combination, can convey spirituality by triggering and enhancing specific emotions. We also see art, its colors, forms, andy all those combinations as an expression, too. Music is another form of spiritual expression - notes, rhythm, and lyrics. Words and its combinations may lead us to tears or even laughter, serving as a vehicle towards reaching and touching our very soul.
Spirituality may be an expression of one or many combination of these spiritual development and energy creation tools available to us. They all can create and cause a lifting and moving within us. They all can help expand our consciousness.
You probably realize you are in charge of your life and the one calling the shots. This is true even if you made a plan of what you wanted to accomplish before even coming to earth. Part of your life experience is finding your path and learning how to recognize this path once you are here on the earth. Many people find their path by following their feelings and intuitions. It is a growth process that is often part of their original plan.
Look at the discovery of your own path so far, and the choices you have already made. How many of those choices were based on your feelings? Probably many. And because of this, you knew which path was the one you were going to take.
The same is such with other choices, too. As you learn to recognize your feelings, this will help guide you all along the way and throughout your life journey.
Feelings are one method to help guide you to know what to do and which choice to make. But also, mediations can be a method to help lead you to your goals as well as help clarify what actions are needed.
You will find the help you need, within you. You have strength within. You have this strength, even now. Going within, tuning into your feelings, and trusting your thoughts, is a positive step. This is one of the best navigating tools available. And, you came equipped with it when you were born.
I used to think the only type of message that could be part of telepathy were thoughts that came into a person's mind. I have since learned that with energy, there are many types of communication beyond just thoughts and messages. I have personally experienced smells, tastes, sounds, and images coming from other sources into my mind.
Smells and Tastes
Years ago my spouse and I were meditating together and at the end of the meditation we kissed and he tasted like chocolate. I asked him what happened in his meditation and he reported how he was in a house and saw some chocolates on a table so stopped and ate one. He had that chocolate flavor and smell on his lips and tongue.
When I was taking an acupuncture class, the teacher reported how you can feel the Qi at an acupuncture point. We then were each instructed to locate an acupuncture point on a fellow student and see if we could feel the Qi. What I noticed was I could HEAR a swooshing sound whenever I was at an acupuncture point. I could hear the sound of the energy flowing at a point.
When I started doing energy work to help people heal, I noticed it was as if their bodies were sending me images about what was going on in their body. I could see the image of the joint, the blood vessel, the organ with the problem and/or the solution which was needed.
All of these types of non-physical messages are a type of telepathy.
Many of us are familiar with the great artist Michelangelo (6 March 1475 – 18 February 1564) who sculpted the beautiful statue David, painted the Sistine chapel ceiling, and created countless other works of art. For many, Michelangelo is considered the greatest sculptor of all time. He seemed to be filled with an over abundance of creative energy and passion throughout his entire life.
In a subsequent life, this soul reincarnated and carried with him some of that same creative energy. In his next physical life, this soul was known as William Shakespeare (26 April 1564 – 23 April 1616), and is still widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and also the world's pre-eminent dramatist.
In his next incarnation, this soul was Nathaniel Hawthorne (July 4, 1804 – May 19, 1864) and was known as the “First Great American Author”, the creator of "The Scarlet Letter."
The Creative Energy Thread read that Connects These Life Experiences
These three soul experiences demonstrates how there can be a common thread of energy to bind different life experiences together. The common theme in each of these three lives was creative expression. Creativity and the ability to express it was the focal point and purpose of each of these three lives.
Before Michelangelo incarnated, he was part of a group of many souls who volunteered to participate in the birthing of the renaissance. The renaissance was an energy change in humanity's development and it was going to influenced literature, philosophy, art, music, politics, science, religion, and other aspects of intellectual inquiry. To pull this off, there were many souls who needed to participate and each of them would need to incarnate around the same time period, location, and produce a life with more specific outcomes than had ever been done before. After all, humanity was being awakened and to do this, many things would need to change.
Preparing for the Physical Experience
To help assure these changes would occur, all of these souls would need to prepare for their physical life experience. They would need to prepare by creating certain desires so they could be drawn to certain type of life experiences. They would need certain inquisitive personalities and over-leaves to assist them in their quest. But the greatest factor in all of their preparations would be to identify what subtle energy would be needed to help them accomplish their quest. In other words, what type of spiritual energy associated with which chakras would need to be charged and energized to help them complete their life task?
Preparing with Sensitivities to Different Types of Energy Frequencies
For the soul we know as Michelangelo, he was given a VERY unusual amount of second chakra energy. This chakra is associated with creativity and sexuality. This energy was going to ensure he would be driven to create a life of creative expression in many different aspects of his life.
Michelangelo became a master artist very quickly in drawing, painting, and sculpting. In fact, he had so much creative energy within him, it seemed to fuel other outlets of expression, too, such as anger, angst, sexual frustration, and even some emotional turbulence. This was a very expressive life, indeed, in part due to the very much charged second chakra. But, he completed what was needed to fulfill his portion of the awakening of expressive art.
In a subsequent life, this same soul very quickly reincarnated back on the physical plane and became known as William Shakespeare. In this life, he still had an abundance of creative energy within him and with this quick turnaround incarnation, he was able to continue with his release of this creative energy.
In this Shakespeare life, he chose the creative outlet of writing and drama as his selected form of expression. This life experience was much less turbulent and troubling than his former physical life experience because he had a more balanced amount of this second chakra energy. He was still was able to produced some of the greatest creative works we have ever known, even with his more balanced incarnation.
In his next subsequent life, this soul reincarnated as the person we know of as Nathaniel Hawthorne. By the time of this incarnation, he had consumed almost all of his additional creative energy (of the second chakra) and he struggled producing what he felt was worthwhile. In this life experience, according to his own words, “it was a life that was rather depressing, unproductive, and not very satisfying.“
Subtle Spiritual Energy Makes a Different in The Life You Experience
The point I am making is that spiritual or subtle energy makes a difference in how a person lives and the outcomes he/she makes. For those who left us with great works of art, like Michelangelo and Shakespeare, they were filled with an abundance of creative spiritual energy.
Spiritual energy and the energy of the chakras do play a role in what we accomplish in our life, whether we know it or not. We can tune in and assess what spiritual energy reserves we have. We can even tune in and improve the quality of energy within those different chakras.
When we enrich the energies in our chakras, we can start to more clearly see our life path and also can create the means to fulfill these life desires and life tasks.
Let's discuss the chakras. As energy flows between the chakras, the fourth chakra point is the neutral point between the higher and the lower chakras. The higher points are considered more spiritual and the lower chakra points are more physical. Perhaps the word physical is not the best choice, but the idea is that the higher points are presenting higher spiritual values and the lower chakra points are more earthly values.
You may recall, you ground through the first chakra and the other two chakras are close to the earth point and deal with bodily function, but also spiritual functions. The second chakra point is a good example. It has two aspects; one is sex and the other is creative. Sex also has two aspects; that of the spirit and the other of the earth. Creativity also has two aspects as well; one is spirit creative and the other is worldly creative.
The ability to know and recognize truth is the spiritual gift associated with the 2nd chakra. Truth is considered a sensing gift and as such is related to the lower chakra points. In order to develop the ability to sense truth, the lower chakra points, especially the 2nd chakra, need to be activated and exercises in all its forms.
These are the main tools that impact, create, as well as expand the energy associated with the second chakra:
In addition, you also have the option of combining any of the tools together in a spiritual exercise. This may even create a deeper spiritual experience.
In the past, I used to always begin my meditation the same way; I would visualize my first chakra in my lower pelvis becoming activated and then send a red grounding cord from this chakra down to the earth. It was as if I was sending a root from a tree into the earth and once that was secure, I could begin the meditation.
Lately I have been starting to just send the grounding to the cord directly to the earth, bypassing the first chakra. The cord was no longer red. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised to have the earth send me back different colors, textures, and even sounds through this connecting and grounding cord.
I have also, at times, instead of grounding first with the earth, I have sent a connecting cord towards the heavens to first connect with that source of energy. This has also produced some surprises in what is returned through that connecting cord. The meditation experience often turns out to be different than first grounding with the earth.
If I am on a boat, or flying in a plane, I have at times taken the opportunity to experience a meditation in that medium. I will do a meditation and "ground" to the water when I am on a boat, or I will ground with the "air" when I am flying in a plane. These different grounding experiences can provide a rather unique meditation outcome.
Sometimes it is nice to stay with the meditation patterns you are used to, but sometimes there are benefits to trying something new and seeing where that new path will take you.
Each of us has the opportunity to identify what type of life we desire before we are born, how is it that we can make sure we get that life and have those types of experiences we need or planned to have before coming to the earth?
As people are born, the chromosomes of the male and the chromosomes of the female join creating a separate and distinct individual. This individual has certain predisposed abilities and features. The fragment (an individual soul) who desires to enter the physical body may choose a body that has predisposed physical traits and certain social or societal features that will help that fragment to obtain the life experience it desires. But physical abilities, for a large part, are determined by the gene pool of its parents and social and economic ability are determined by the society. Therefore, if a person has a talent of physical ability to perform, or learn, or do something on the physical level, this comes from the physical body. The obvious example of this is physical strength, but other talents are also developed through this manner, too.
For example, Mozart, as a fragment, desired to experience musical ability for whatever reason, and therefore as a fragment chose a life or physical body that would help him obtain this ability.
But how would a fragment who desires to obtain insight, or to be able to communicate with other fragments, or to develop spiritual gifts be programmed into the personality that inhabits the physical body? These traits and gifts are not physical, so how can these nonphysical traits and experiences be obtained?
Nonphysical abilities and experiences are directed and guided through a person's feelings. It is the process where the fragment's Higher Self will instill a desire within. This desire is something that can not be brushed aside. It isn't a whim, it is almost like an ache that won't go away until you get on this path and complete the task you had planned to have in this life. The ache will even grow if you continue to ignore or suppress it.
It is through these feelings that will help guide, then pull, and then drive a person towards their nonphysical life purpose desires.
Being Sensitive to Your Feelings
Being sensitive to your feelings and then acting on those feelings will help lead you toward your intended life purpose. For whatever reason, it is those experiences your pre-physical spiritual self desired to have in this lifetime that are part of your life purpose charter. You will be pulled in that direction until you have fulfilled or completed that task, or become fully satisfied with the experience. You will then probably start to feel a new gentle pull towards another new life purpose experience. And so the cycle continues.
Energy and matter are interchangeable. Matter is a form of energy. Matter is constantly vibrating in the form of tangible solids and tangible gases.
All matter is infused with the vibrations of life force energy. This is why we can draw on the life force energy and use this energy. When you are using spiritual gifts, you are using this natural, life force energy and transferring it to be used with a spiritual gift.
For example, when you are using this energy for healing, you are guiding this natural energy (or Qi) to do a specific task. You give it an assignment and this energy is then changed to be used in the healing process. This is the spiritual gift of Command Projection, which takes the energy of the fourth chakra vibration and converts it to the projected and directed energy of healing you are guiding it to do.
In nature, there is a balance between male and female energy forces. Most things in life have a split objective or concept or duality; that of male and female. Even the chakras of our spiritual body have a balance of male and sexual energy.
The chakra points in the energy body are divided into lower and higher attributes. Some call these attributes male or female. The male chakra points are considered to be the chakra points one, two, and three and the female chakra points are considered the chakra points five, six, and seven. The fourth chakra point is the balance of both male and female attributes.
By balancing the chakras, one may tie the energy of the chakras into the energy of nature. In other words, there is living energy all around and by balancing the chakra points you may think of yourself as turning into this natural energy.
As you turn into this natural energy, this is when things can start to become magical. You start to recognize, feel, and become this natural energy. This is when you go beyond the singular and personal experience of a kundalini shower. This is when you also go beyond the ability to feel that oneness with your sexual partner when you blend and merge two energy forces into becoming one. This is when you become connected to absolutely everything. This is when the phrase "I am one with the universe" is no longer just words. It is the recognition, awareness, and sense you have transformed and have actually become this natural energy. It is when you become "I am."
Spiritual Guides can help you in in this life, but a Spiritual Guide generally does not interfere with your life. The Higher Self, who controls or directs your life experience, can cause the soul to feel urgent, or restless, or instill a desire for something that is not understood. It is a method your Higher Self wishes to communicate directly with you.
Spiritual Guides do not have direct access to Higher Selves. They are on the astral plane together, but the Higher Self does not direct what the activities the Spiritual guides do or what they are.
You may have assumed that any stirrings or inclinations came from your Spiritual Guides but more than likely it came from your Higher Self.
Being able to sense the energy of the earth is related to the first chakra and the spiritual gift of personality sensing. You could say you are sensing the “personality” of the earth, which is its life force energy.
Visit and Feel
One way to test your ability to sense life force energy is to visit different locations and tune in to how you feel at these different locations. Obvious contrasting energy locations are a good place to begin because these are the places that are most obvious to produce certain feelings with the energies that are at these locations. For example, if you visit a place that has a history of cruelty, such as Alcatraz Island, or a history of death, such as Gettysburg and then visit a place known for having remarkable beauty, such as a national park, you can contrast the different feelings you had at these different locations. When you visit these different locations, tune into your feelings, what you see, what you hear, your thoughts. Allow all of your senses to become engaged.
Some people will even feel sexually aroused at an earth energy site. This is because of the connection between spirit, sex, and love, so if this happens, you are connecting and sensing that spiritual energy of the earth we call the life force.
Contrast Different Sensations
This ability to contrast the extremes provides you a beginning spot of how to tune in and evaluate the earth energy at different locations; places with pain, hurt, or sadness Vs those with vibrancy and life. Be mindful that the earth energy changes in different seasons and even during different times of the day, so take this into account when you are training yourself to tune into the earth’s life force energy.
With practice and awareness, you can improve your ability to recognize earth energy locations. You will also be able to locate energy heart locations which are the areas that are easier to connect to the astral plane, connect to your Higher Self, to have visitations and possibly an apparition.
The lower chakras have spiritual gifts very much associated with the gift of sensing. The first chakra spiritual gift is personality sensing. The second chakra spiritual gift is truth sensing. The third chakra spiritual gift is future sensing (and past regression).
These sensing gifts all require the ability to tune in, sense different types of energy, and interpret the energy and message being projected. So how does a person develop their ability to sense energy and then interpret the message and the energy being projected?
There are different methods to help a person cultivate and develop these sensing skills, but one of the easiest methods is to practice sensing the energy of color. Color, as you may know, uses different energy waves. As a result, a person can tune in and sense the different types of energy waves being projected to them and they interpret the message and energy wave as a different color.
Here is a method you can use to help you learn how to tune in, sense, and and recognize different colors being projected. This exercise is a quick and easy method to help you evaluate your current ability to sense color as well as help you train yourself to become more sensitive to receiving color messages.
The objectives of these sensing exercises are to help you
Now switch roles and have the other person become the sender of a color and see if the other person can receive and interpret the color being sent.
Rotate and Try Exercise with Someone New
Now change partners and have one of the other people become your new partner. Try the exercise again and see how many were successful in sensing and identifying the correct color being sent.
After you feel successful projecting and sensing different colors, try other types of energy. For example, send out a smell, or a taste, or a sound, or a texture, or a feeling, and have the receiver sense, smell, taste or feel the energy you are sending. You may send the smell of roses, for example, or the smell of a baked apple pie, or the taste of chocolate, or the touch of a gentle kiss. See if this energy can be sent and then if it can be sensed/received.
Improving with Practice
With practice, your ability to sense different energy waves and frequencies will improve. With time and practice, you can also become more confident in your sensing skills
These sensing skills, and the confidence you develop in these simple exercises, can serve as a foundation to help you tune into other energies that are related with other types of sensing gifts, including personality sensing, truth sensing, and future sensing.
If you are starting to meditate with another person,meditate side by side rather than face each other. The reason for this is that your energies may become more intertwined if you are facing each other. You will have better results from your meditations if you do not face each other.
You may decide to change this process later on, but in the beginning, having you each face the same direction during your joint meditation will allow your energies to be unencumbered.
How can you distinguish between thoughts that are inspired vs thoughts that are hunches?
A thought of inspiration, where all at once things seem clear, this is an intuitive thought or feeling. Thoughts which clarify and seem to provide answers that are clear are intuitive thoughts. These are the strongest type, but perhaps the least frequent. The most common thoughts, but perhaps the most difficult to understand, are hunches or feelings; they are impressions.
How do you validate correct hunches?
You try them out. By doing so your experience will further your receptive nature to these thoughts will increase in the future.
Between intuitive thoughts and hunches are a whole spectrums of thoughts. Intuitive thoughts are where you allow your thoughts to come freely to your mind from outside spiritual sources. Who are these spiritual sources? They can be from your Higher Self or from your Spiritual Guide. Your Higher Self will obviously know what you want and therefore can assist your Spiritual Guide.
How do you know if a true intuitive thought has been obtained?
There will be more intuitive thoughts to clarify the subject. Simply allow them to come. The thoughts will build and create a mental picture, which is called insight. Once this is complete, you may wish to record the thought.
Do not be upset or discouraged if you can not capture the thought eloquently as presented, for you should only try to capture the essence or the core insight. If you try to capture the total thought process, your mind will become activated and then block the transmission of the intuitive feeling.

Meditation and astral travel are different. As you meditate, you may feel an expansion of consciousness, which also uses the 6th chakra energy. This expansion is sometimes called an out-of-body-experience (OOBE). This is not astral travel because the mind is still in control. If the conscious or the subconscious mind is still in control, it means you can control the meditation.
Once you feel the expansion, you may direct your attention. If the subconscious is in charge, it will lead to where you may have programed your thoughts before the expansion occurred.
In an expansion, or OOBE, the mind actually expands inward into itself, so an expansion is used to examine ones self or aspects of ones mind, thoughts, or feelings. So as you focus the bounds, focus on an aspect you wish to examine.
How to Direct the Mind During an Expansion
How do you direct the mind during an expansion? After you become aware that you have gone beyond the bodily limits, note several things as points of interest. The feeling of energy or excitement will be somewhat similar to a sexual experience except that you are not sexually excited. In other words, the energy flows are very similar. This is due to the connection of spirit love, and sex, so as the amount of spiritual energy increases, which does in an expansion, so too will be an increase in sexual feelings as well as feelings of love.
Take Note of the Sensation
Next, note that you do not see your physical world if you have your eyes closed, you will feel or experience your bounds by the feelings of freedom and have no constraints. This will probably feel new, yet to your mind, it may react by setting constraints.
With experience, as you relax in this state of expansion, you will become accustomed to the sensations and this will allow your mind to look beyond the limits. You will eventually find that there are no limits to the expansion, only those you choose. So the concept is to focus the limits to the direction you wish to examine.

You can think of an earth energy center’s heart as a living being. A living being is affected by different conditions. Heart points feed off the elements surrounding them; the sun, the moon, water, earth, wind, and the other elements that combine to produce the heart points. Plants, of course take on different appearances through the seasons, but also during specific times of the day as well depending upon the amount of life giving light there is available. Plants of course produce life forces which are focused in these energy centers and heart points and so affect their strength.
Living beings can also change and many living beings can travel. So, too, can earth heart centers. Through the years, heart centers can travel, sometimes even great distances (by foot travel, such as three, five, or even 10 miles distance.
Changes with the Seasons
The heart centers can even change with the seasons. As vegetation goes into dormancy for the winter, its energy patterns change. The heart location will also change.
Different Energy Centers Have Different Vibrations
Different energy centers also have different vibrations. The closer the match to your vibration, the greater you are able to sense the heart of an energy center.
Once you have been able to match the vibrations of a heart center, you can discover what is best suited or available to you personally at this center. Some people may feel great emotions about the ocean, for example, but others feel very little. This type of connection to certain places is related to the vibration you are aligned with.
Different heart points have different frequencies and because of this, you may find there are different heart points that are better suited for different spiritual gifts. Some earth energy sites may be better suited for regression. Some sites may be better suited for astral travel. Some may be better suited for one gift than another, but do not feel that only one gift is possible to practice at a heart point for all are influenced and enhanced through the power and forces surrounding them.
Love, sex, and spirit are very much interrelated. You can think of them as a triad with each one impacting the other. As a person increases love for someone special, so too does their spiritual energy increase and also their desire for sex. Likewise, as you engage in more sex with that person you love, the love you feel increases and you spiritual energy also increases.
Through love, the souls of your bodies can share and intermingle in energy and insight. As one gives a sexual gift or pleasure to another, even if the one giving does not become sexually excited, the energy created by the activity is shared by both. But only if the gift or activity is done with pure love and the gift or activity is accepted with the same pure love. Love allows the energy to intermingle, therefore, as you feel love and closeness, the energies can and do share with each other.
By engaging in sexual activities, you can become even become closer to the astral plane. Because you are closer to the astral plane, this makes traveling to the astral plane easier. In addition, communication with the astral plane and those on the astral plane, such as your Higher Self or Spiritual Guides, can also be possible after having sex.
Sex can provide energy to the kundalini and that can energize and spiritually excite the whole body, mind, and the spirit. It is tied to creativity, both in reproductive sense but probably more important in a general life sense as well.
In reality, as couples engage in sex, the whole kundalini becomes spiritually activated and excited due to the influence of the 2nd chakra point. This produces spiritual energy for the soul. As sex is culminated in climax, the physical energy or excitement of sex diminishes but the spiritual energies do not have a climatic release and therefore remain with the soul and feeds the soul and mind and physical aspects of the body. This energy does not come from the other partner or is robbed from another source, but comes freely from the TAO and is therefore of an unlimited supply. The importance of this is that eventually sexual spiritual energy decreases with time and is lost back to the Tao.
The sum of two people’s energy is much greater than the sum of their separate energy. In other words, as people bond, the energy grows exponentially.
How Much Sex?
You may have engaged in frequent sexual encounters and then noticed the desire for sex decreases. What is happening is that the spiritual soul is becoming satiated with sexual energy and the soul’s need for more energy.
How often should one engage in sex?
You should not force the activity for you will then lose the spiritual benefits of sex.
Does a person need to engage in intercourse to obtain spiritual benefits?
No. Even simple touching, holding, or activities that cause sexual excitement are of benefit because they cause the second chakra point to become energized. That is why meditation on sex can also create and cause spiritual growth.
Other Ways to Increase Spiritual Energy?
Is sex the only way to obtain spiritual energy?
No, of course not. It can be one of the most pleasant, however. Meditation is another way to increase spiritual energies without sex. An expansion and state of rest allows the spiritual energies to slowly recharge. But when engaged in mind training, the energy levels are drawn down. Therefore, a meditation whose sole purpose is to obtain expansion and rest can recharge spiritual energies slowly.
Another method to increase spiritual energies is by dwelling or concentrating on different chakra points. The chakra points can be excited and energy benefits can be achieved through this type of concentration. But because the second chakra point is tied to creative energy and has such a strong physical desire associated with it, the spiritual energies derived from the concentration on the second chakra are of a greater amount and force than concentration on the other chakras. Therefore it is generally easier to obtain energies through the second chakra point than by any others.
Does Sexual Position Matter?
Does it matter what sexual position is used if a person desires to increase spiritual energy or have a kundalini experience?
Each chakra position is sensitive to a different sexual position or sexual act. This means that different sexual positions affect the chakra's differently. The best practice is to engage in sex as you feel a desire or inclination. Do not force it. Do what you feel is right and don’t feel pressured or forced for this does not allow the spiritual energies to increase but causes sexual frustration which decreases the spiritual energies available.
Love, sex, and spirit are interrelated. The energy from any, sex, love, or spirit, will have an impact on the others.
Here is the process that can help guide you to interpret dreams.
Interpretation is what the dream images represent. Interpretation is taking the images and translating them into a message. Sometimes the process can feel like the game of charades - taking images and clues and then piecing them together.
Insight is the lesson or the teaching to be learned. The insight can come from the mind or the Higher Self. Generally it is the subconscious trying to inform the conscious. The dreams that seem to standout vividly and have a tremendous impact are generally from your Higher Self.
Keep an Open Mind
In the interpretation process, maintain an open mind. Once you have thought about an interpretation and have decided that it is not complete, you must be willing to disregard that interpretation. As you explore interpretations to dreams, permit your mind to wander and explore other completely unrelated possibilities.
There are different types of dreams.
Real dreams, however, are dreams that have a significant meaning or message. You may think of these types of dreams as internal dreams. These types of dreams may show you the future.
Real Dreams Have a Message
Dreams, if they are not just dreams, will have an interpretation of an insight which can help you with your life. These types of dreams are often directed by your Spiritual Guide or through your Higher Self. Real dreams are the ones we want to receive and also want to understand. Real dreams can have an important message. Real dreams are the dreams we want to pay attention to because it is a communication and message directed specifically to us.
Does the Dream Feel Significant?
If the dream feels significant to you, the dream will linger with you not only after you wake up, but through the day and perhaps even years. The more significant the dream, the more impact it will have on your memory. These types of dreams will have an interpretation and insight, and as such, can help you.
The dreams with the strongest impression usually have a purpose. Those are the dreams that are real and significant.
The procedure to recall an astral travel would be to sit comfortably and let your thoughts wander. Don’t try to decide a direction or focus, but sense what comes to your mind.
As you experience this, notice that feelings and thoughts arrive without effort and that a period of openness can also be established. In other words, let your mind wander and then the feelings or thoughts may enter. A mind engaged in exercise is not free to receive.
As you meditate, choose one or two points or thoughts to consider. For example, the thought of improved memory and the related thought of travel remembrance. Don’t try to put too much into it. Keep it simple so that the mind can broaden and grow and so that the mind is clear of trying to remember what comes next.
