  1. @John Lula you can search for people with whom you can share the truth about what you think and feel. I think it is important for you to take time for crying or expressing whatever goes through you. Yoga, going for a walk in nature , listening to good music and getting good sleep are other tips that come through my mind. I am suffering too most days and I know how hard it is. You are not alone.
  2. @KenDo Pay attention to the sensations in your body and begins observing your thoughts. Tell the truth about your emotions , what you fear , what you are angry and sad about. The reason you have social anxiety is because you are lying, you are trying to be somebody else that you are not, you are trying to fulfill the expectations you imagine other people have from you. Begin doing physical practices such as yoga, bioenergetics and others to release repressed emotions. If you want to do the work fast go on a yoga or vipassana meditation retreat. I had severe social anxiety too and have overcome it. Good luck.
  3. @ajasatya I like the style of your answers ajasatya. You have an impact on me when I read what you write. I saw your blog and that your name is Arthur Paulino. I also read a bit of the algorithms you explain , that I understand quite well even if they are in Portuguese since I speak Italian and Spanish and I studied physics in University.
  4. @wakeel55 what techniques have you used to let go of negative emotions ?
  5. I have scoliosis too in the lower back because my left leg is structurally a little bit shorter than the right one. I am healing my body now and maybe i will discover a deeper energetic cause for it. As of right now , I don't know .
  6. @youngshinzen It has opened a much more closer connection to others . More than I could imagine. Entire new ranges of positive emotions are present in relationships with others. I recommend you don't explain anything prior to expressing yourself and just let your emotions come out . Maybe you can explain after. Explaining and rationalizing emotions is just an ego defense mechanism . Most of the times emotions don't have anything to do with your conscious rational perspective of events in the present moment. I also recommend attending a radical honesty workshop. For me it changed my life. And as shin said shadow work is very important. I am doing the work right now.
  7. @youngshinzen tell the truth about your anger and your judgments toward your brother. The important thing is that you stay in contact with the sensations in your body when you do so . Anger could also cover up grief or some other emotions but you can know that only if you experience it. Don't force any restraint , be as loud as you want. Be radically honest. I learnt to do this in radical honesty workshops. I have done the same thing with several people in my life and I will do it with several others.
  8. Yeah , that’s why suffering is great
  9. Thank you . When I was 13 I had no knowledge about psychology or enlightenment, I didn’t even know I could do something to change myself. I found out later and I remember I was very impressed about the fact that a little piece of knowledge can change so much a person’s life and that this important knowledge is so little spread.
  10. What brought you to spirituality so young ? I am 21 now and began meditating seriously when I turned 20 after a lot of suffering.
  11. At what age did you begin doing spiritual work ?
  12. I did not self induce my awakening, infact I didn’t even know what kundalini was when I awakened it. It awakened after a period of intense suffering that led me to do a lot of spiritual work all in once. Kundalini is speeding up my development tremendously but the quantity of emotional labour I’m going through is huge. And I still have a lot of work to do and still a lot of my Self to discover. Kundalini is really forcing me to live the most true, honest, and clean life possible, because if I don’t then it makes me experience suffering. Thanks i read in books about shaktipat but I never met anyone who experienced it. I spoke a lot with one enlightened man but I did not ask him about this.
  13. @WildeChilde kundalini is highly concentrated life energy located in the abdomen. Once it is awakened , all the stuck energy (repressed emotions, traumas, etc ) in all of your body will push to come out . This can produce very strong symptoms and be extremely debilitating. Awakening kundalini is a highway towards enlightenment. You have to be prepared to face your inner demons. Your repressed emotions (= the shadow that makes ego live = your neuroses = what distorts your perception of reality = demons ) cannot remain in you when kundalini is awakened. If kundalini is awakened once you have already done a lot of purification work (= your energetic body is already to a good extent clean ) , you will have weaker symptoms and you will obtain faster the positive effects it brings . There are also a lot of positive affects when kundalini is stabilized and flows well in you but I still haven’t experienced them. Usually kundalini is awakened once the navel or crown chakra are fully opened . I am in the kundalini process right now and I am having a very hard time.
  14. @CuteCornDog i think things are going to get better, I really hope so . gradually surrender to what is , feel every sensation in your body from when it arises to when it passes.
