How To Experience and Feel Your Consciousness

To have a direct experience of one’s own consciousness seems to be a prerequisite for many spiritual endeavours and endeavours towards higher knowledge. Without knowing what the consciousness is, we are still tapping in the dark and have yet to arrive to one of the first major thresholds of the path. Without this experiential knowledge, we can go up to a certain point, but eventually we have to acquire this experience in order to build up faith in the inner work and in the Being.

Can Spiritual Practice Help us to Have No Thoughts?

Having no thoughts, or having control over thoughts, is probably one of a larger reason why so many people decide to look into spiritual practices. The state of mind in average human is unfortunately very low, which means that it is polluted with thoughts of negativity, spite, anger, hatred, jealousy, envy, malice, violence, fear, depression...Sometimes people start to do some light form of inner work due to exhaustion with the negative thoughts and emotions, nevertheless in such lighter

Signs of the Awakening of Kundalini and its Six Mystical States

The Kundalini energy is one of the essential parts of the spiritual awakening and the process that leads towards the Final Liberation, which is the liberation from the Wheel of Samsara and from the Universe. This energy rises up from the base of the spine in the Muladhara chakra and it goes up through the Sushumna channel in the spine until it reaches the Sahasrara chakra at the top of the head, opening the connection between the human being and their divine origin.

The Dream Types and Dream Guidance in the Gnostic Work

In the Gnostic work, our dreams have enormous importance. The dreams that we have are not just a bunch of messy stuff that came from unprocessed departments of our subconscious mind, but they can also be a very valuable source of information that we can use in our spiritual unfoldment. In the West today it is generally believed that dreams are simply a product of brain activity, a subconscious mind processing information, and that there is not much value to them.

Mental and Emotional Hygiene in Daily Living

In this day and age, a lot of importance is placed on physical hygiene, but very little on mental and emotional ones. In schools and universities there is very little information (or not at all) on how to deal with ones own thoughts and emotions, and even that information is scarce and insufficient. At homes, parents raise their children based on their own values, with very little knowledge of the thought and emotion culture. Unfortunately then, the lack of this information has created the

The Value of Patience on the Gnostic Path

One of the most important virtues that we can cultivate on the Path, is patience. There are many other important virtues that are indispensable, such as honesty, chastity, love, compassion, will etc., but in order to acquire those, we need to have patience. Therefore, with patience we can climb the ladder of the Being, and eventually reach the Human Soul – the first of the parts of our inner Being that we incarnate on the path to liberation.

The Spiral and the Direct Path on the Journey to Final Liberation

When we commence the journey that leads towards the 'final' liberation, which is the liberation from the Creation and the Universe in which we are and where we grow, we find our life is not just something random, but rather that it has a concrete purpose; we begin to notice all the lessons that were taking place in our life before our commencement of the inner work; the things start to move towards their respective places, like the pieces of jigsaw puzzles. We also begin to notice that the

The Necessity of Having Fixed Spiritual Goals

If one is to reach far spiritually, it is important to know what it is that we want to achieve, and then moving towards it by setting spiritual goals. Without such goals in place, it is very easy to drift away into various things related to spirituality; to follow one spiritual direction for one month, and another direction a few months later. Or to stay in Gnosis for prolonged period of time, doing the practices and exploring the conscious way of being, though not necessarily wanting to

Could We Function In This World Without our Egos?

Often  time, people who are interested in spirituality, as well as those who are considering taking the path to liberation, wonder if it is possible to function in this world without the egos, without the defence mechanism and the psychological buffers created by the ego, or without things such as anger; the wondering sparked by the rationale that anger is needed in order to go well through life. It is also reflected upon if life could be lived without other mechanisms, such as lust,

How to Measure Spiritual Progress

Measuring one’s own spiritual progress when doing the inner work is not only something that can be achieved, but it is encouraged to do so. However, because spirituality is seen as an abstract subject, it is often assumed that a spiritual progress cannot be measured in a concrete way, and that the only way to attempt something of that sort is by some vague observations, or perhaps even being content with not measuring it all, when spirituality is approached as a kind of a belief system.

Meditation on the Sun: Intuiting the Essence of Our True Nature

One of the inspiring things that could be focused upon in meditation, is the sun. Besides providing life to all living beings on our planet and keeping the solar system nourished and in its place, it also has a spiritual significance. In ancient cultures, sun was often regarded as god, or a chief ruler, to whom offerings were given. It seems that people in those days were more connected to the sun and to nature; living somewhat more in harmony with its sacred principles. In modern times,

The Benefits of Spiritual Retreats: How Reflection in Nature Helps the Inner Work

Spiritual retreats have been used by people for thousands of years, so for them to get more grounded in their inner work, or to create a strong force that will in the coming weeks or months make them remember of that which is spiritual. Many cultures from around the world have done that, and are still doing that for the exact same reasons – to strengthen the connection with divinity inside of them, as well as outside of them. Often time they would go on a retreat that would be preceded by a

A Dilemma of the Mystical Death: Meditation on an Ego vs. Death in Motion

The teachings that Samael Aun Weor has left us are priceless and extraordinary; one of the reasons for this is the technique for the dissolution of the ego that he elaborated upon extensively in many of his books and public talks. One of his greatest legacy is this length to which he went in order to help people understand what the ego is, what are its intricacies, and how to liberate the trapped essence by eliminating the ego that is conditioning it.

Releasing Karma Through Repentance and Forgiveness

The topic of karma is an important and a frequent one in many spiritual traditions, and with a good reason. As karma has such a major influence on our lives, it is very worth spending time studying it from a practical point of view, within our own day-to-day life. In most spiritual literature, karma is known as the law of action and reaction, or of cause and effect. This means that the actions that we take (or that we don’t take when we should have taken them, such as when not helping those

Gaining Control over Sexual Urge and Lust (Part II)

In the Part One of this article I mentioned some important things that could be considered and worked upon when wanting to deal with overcoming lust and sexual urge. As already mentioned there, lust is a great obstacle to spiritual advancement for many people. The reason for this is because sexual energy as such is the most powerful energy that we have in the body, and lust draws from this energy in order to gain strength and to ultimately feed itself as the result of having us giving in to
