Detailed Procedure Of The Quantum Meditation Technique


In part one of this series the Quantum Meditation technique was  defined as: "a method of meditation reaching our deepest central awareness following certain conditions of careful yogic stretching and stillness, bringing the intellect and feelings together to commune with the core of our life energy (creative primordial energy) expressed along the spine at the subtle quantum interface of emerging matter and mind. This holistic practice ensures prompt and blissful mind-body perception for dynamic health and the abundant vitality so necessary to live a fulfilling life."


Here in part three the technique is described.


Each 90-minute session is divided into two parts:


    A) The hands-on experience of 60 minutes of Yoga stretching
    B) A 30 minutes session on meditation


Consistent with the view of ancient yoga philosophy, the modern scientific Gaia theory considers Earth as a living organism with her network of living creatures existing as a holistic entity. Mother Earth is the ultimate source of our material body. An assured way to experience our own inner bliss is to master the art of communing with the selfless love of our Mother Earth through increased holistic awareness and deep perception during meditation. This state of bliss is similar to that of a restful dreamless sleep, even though the subject is fully self-aware at every moment during the meditation. The students will eventually experience this state of uninterrupted bliss once they master this art, and could revisit this state any time and place, at will.


The hands on procedure involves:


1) the generation of a comprehensive mind-body unity through conscious abdominal breathing with intentional diaphragm movement


2) focused whole-body sensation and increased awareness using specific mind-body postures


3) mental imaging through acute feeling of the spinal energy, the core universal life force, called the Kundalini energy (or primordial life-force), during a comfortable static meditative posture


The yogic stretching exercises, mentioned above also help to clear up any blockage in the flow of metabolic energy that we produce in vivo from the air and food intake from our environment, and due to our careless wrong postures and habitual negative emotions.  In addition, such exercises will allow an uninterrupted flow of our innate Kundalini energy along the core of our spine, helping to generate the beneficial awareness of ease and efficiency in our continual energy flow. During meditation using a static Yoga asana, the students are asked to feel and differentiate between the energy states of the body, as well as the spinal center, with coincident mental imagery, and experience the accompanying state of bliss.


Following the stretching yoga exercises, the students will learn how to assume the appropriate sitting posture for effective meditation, where they will feel at ease without any physical movement during the subsequent period. Following the assumption of such a posture, the flow of Kundalini energy along the spine can be perceived.


The actual meditation then commences. The students are asked to stay focused on a fixed location (heart center) on their spine while visualizing the energy flow in the form of a steady streak of light. Eventually, they would feel that they have become the light themselves. The steadily radiating light of innate happiness may then appear as a radiant smile, and the person can feel this smile pervading the entire personal being. The initial experience of this smile has a positive feedback effect on the neuromuscular network, which, in turn, may respond by further spreading of the sensation of bliss through every part in the body. Thus, the meditator would sit still in a comfortable meditation posture and be absorbed in the flood of inner bliss. The person would later be able to recall and repeat this experience more intensely each day and begin to investigate various aspects of mind/body organization during subsequent meditation sessions. In this way, one spontaneously gains different aspects of self knowledge.



The Stretching And Relaxation Yogic Exercises For Mind-Body Unity Prior To Static Meditation Practice


The relaxation principle behind the Yoga exercises is based on the alternate stretching and relaxation under focused concentration during the sessions, as perceived from the spinal axis of the individual. Several yoga postures are performed in a given order to achieve several objectives, such as proper oxygenation of the body by deep abdominal breathing, toning of the abdominal muscles, lateral, rear, and forward spinal stretching for spinal suppleness, opening up of the chest cavity, opening up of the hip joints, and stretching of the sciatic nerves and leg muscles. These postures are well-know and practiced widely in the yoga community. However, the specific ways they are guided during the practice with purposeful attention make the difference. In quantum meditation protocol this aspect is made very clear to all our students in order to ensure their progress during the subsequent still meditation practice since the outcome in the latter depends on the former.

The hatha yoga postures that are routinely used in a quantum meditation sessions have been refined from popular Yoga series in order to prepare our students for meditation. These are, Standing Deep Breathing (Pranayama), Ardhachandrasana with Pada Hastasana, Garurasana, Utkatasana, Dandayamana-Bibhaktapada-Paschimottanasana, Tadasana, Savasana, Pavanamuktasana, Suptavajrasana, Sarbangasana, Ustrasana, Ardhakurmasana, Gomukhasana, and Padmasana or Sukhasana for the still Meditation. The students are asked to pay careful attention to the following points during the session:


1) To go real slow while going into or coming out of the posture so that they do not miss the feeling of any part of the stretching movement



2) Try to stay absolutely motionless during the static phase of each posture to make the impression uniquely pleasurable on the mind.
Static Meditation Phase


There are two principal postures that are widely used for meditation: Padmasana (Lotus Pose), and Sukhasana (Effortless Pose). Sitting in the lotus position conquers a great deal of the ida current. The practices of concentration and observation conquer a great deal of the pingala current. Where the individual will be required to assume a static position for a reasonable length of time without feeling discomfort, the Effortless Pose is suggested. This position is attainable for most people, and is also relatively comfortable. Sukhasana is described below.


Sit on a cushion on the floor, with the legs crossed and folded so that the heels comfortably rest under the thighs. Keep the spine straight while holding the stomach in, and the chest out, noting that the upper body weight is fully on the buttocks. Now relax the lower spine and abdomen and gradually bend it slightly until the entire ribcage is felt. Maintain the posture. At this stage, the upper body is supported by the ribcage. The neck, spine, and buttocks are in a straight line. Bring the hands over the respective thighs with the palms facing up and the thumbs and forefingers touching each other. One could also join the palms together in a prayer mode. Bring the mind and body into focus along the spinal center while experiencing the body. Breathe abdominally in a relaxed mode and feel the gentle sensation in the abdominal muscles with each breath. A pleasant sensation in the back along the lower spine will soon be perceived. Keep the mind and body firmly fixed on the spinal sensation and enjoy it. Now think about Mother Earth's immense grace, her loving energy flowing along the spine from the bottom up. Try to see the radiant light of that energy. Feel the emergence of a state of bliss and light, pervading the entire being. As this state of bliss develops, a smile may be experienced. This will have a positive feedback effect on the entire neuromuscular network, intensifying and spreading the blissful sensation through every cell in the body. Remain in the meditation posture, and enjoy the flood of inner bliss.
