“As the spinal nerve gradually becomes purified through pranayama and meditation, a new kind of experience becomes possible. We begin to awaken sexual energy in an upward direction near the root, and then we make a connection between the lower and upper ends of the spinal nerve. This connection is real and can be felt clearly by the practitioner as a kind of conductivity through the spinal nerve, an “ecstatic conductivity,” if you will. The spinal nerve becomes a conductor of ecstatic experience. From there it spreads out through all the nerves in the body. This is perceived directly through all five senses operating inside the body. As the experience of ecstatic conductivity goes deeper into every cell in the body, the senses go inward with it. The experience is so pleasurable and captivating that the senses cannot resist following. It is a unique situation where the senses willingly go inward instead of outward. In yoga terminology it is called pratyahara – withdrawal of the senses inward. It is a perfectly natural situation as the experiences of huge inner pleasure lead our senses inward. It is great fun too. Some say more fun than worldly sex. Well, you can be the judge of that. ”

Okay, so I’m reading a book called A Tale For the Time Being, and in there a Japanese teenager is telling the reader about her buddhist nun of a great grandmother and how she practices Zazen Meditation. She describes how to do it basically to find a home in yourself. It’s basically just a posture and a holding of the hands and focusing on your breaths. Counting to ten and starting over if you lose your concentration pretty much. So, I put y book down and get my yoga mat out and just start to practice this. I then feel like my posture needed to be straightened so i did more than before, but then I just felt my body being pulled to lay on my back. I kind of giggled to myself, maybe I was just imagining that. But then I stared at my ceiling, and it first showed me like the Flower of Life, all of the perfect circles coinciding. I didn’t think much about it because it is a white ceiling , squares so maybe it’s just an optical illusion. I play around with it though. I started seeing a dark color and a light color start moving around and taking over all of my vision and then another pattern all over the ceiling. So then I decided to say Hello. and then the white part like focused into the middle of my stare, and kept like zooming into the middle , starting on the outside.. and then disappeared. I said I love you , Lol I know that sounds weird this is all weird , don’t judge me but I know that water molecules act differently when labeled differently I guess is where I got the idea, and it did the white like zooming into the middle. And then I weirdly got aroused.. I know that’s weird , and I wasn’t going to share this until tried searching it on here and couldn’t find it so I googled it…. But it wasn’t really a sexual arousal all though I felt it , and I increased my breathing and it was like intensifying. All the while i’m just laying on my yoga mat. And I stopped it like I didn’t know what was happening so I focused on the ceiling again and it was all like buzzing, and white everywhere when before it was a darker color when I focused, and I tried to focus on my breathing again and I felt like head like buzzing like my front teeth felt like they were buzzing. It was weird as fuck but I let it happen cause I didn’t feel scared and then I just feel like different I guess…
Just wanted to share that, experience I just handled. & ^That’s the article that I found to match what happen to me.
Also sorry if this offends anyone, just wanted to see what you guys think?

<Find a home in yourself>. People are always wandering in the outside world but forget to find whats inside of them. Is sometimes difficult to look inside ourselves and just accept the true that is upon us. Our inner self is our home, we must love it and take care of it, that way we can be one with this world, holding an harmonious form. I think meditation is something we can use to explore ourselves, to understand our human nature and that way be whole with the universe. The mind and body are incredibly powerful, is normal that we experience some effects after a meditation session, buzzing, sharper perception/awareness, hapiness,.. its just incredible. Enjoy! ;)

Yesss! The inside of you will always remain the same so for me it’s like I’m building my own kingdom inside of me in my prime times so I can dwell there when I am older and whenever lol. It is difficult to face yourself and your pain and even face the happy times that have passed but they all make you , you, I even appreciate all of my childhood of a mess because it has made me think way bigger than the minuscule things. & This meditation session was way more powerful than any other one I have gone into. It is very powerful, and like sometimes I go down the thought path that I can’t be special to have control of my life that much but I really do , and I need to explore myself more it’s like every day I explore myself and challenge myself and appreciate myself it’s weird haha. I’m a roller coaster at this point sometimes. & I have never felt my teeth buzzing like that it kinda freaked me out but it was really happening and i just got up and felt like the universe came back inside of me lol. Thank you (;

I read this week that the vital energy can’t be stored too much in the head or heart or you overload yourself, that it should be stored in the navel and distributed as neeeded from there. But it’s all drawn from the ovaries or testicles. I was having a hard time bc my yoga teachers speak mostly of energy starting at the root but the source is really the sexual energy drawn into the root and then circulated energetically from there. I definitely have experiences like you described all the time and my problem is mostly finding a relevant use for it because I’m always sensationing all over the place, I could just sit inside myself like that forever.

Yeah exactly, I read its below the naval and to focus your energy there because that’s like the central part of you. I never ever linked meditation with sexual energy or awareness, I was like whoa where is this coming from but I just allowed it. I’m glad you have experienced this as well lol, it wasn’t like sexual but it had that sensation at the same time it was weird. Something to understand more. (:

@8instinto8, Its amazing that sexual energy during meditation can help you expand your mind and soul, at the same time is hard for me to understand why sexual energy has that power. Is as if sexual energy has the power to DRIVE other types of energy. when that energy/consciousness is exposed upon us, we can use it in different ways..
