  1. I don’t know if any of you have tried Sadhguru’s yoga namaskar practice but I find some parts of it quite difficult because I’m not flexible enough. Are there any specific excercises I can do to become more flexible or will the daily practice of it eventually lead to me being able to do the postures properly?
  2. Some I use... I am courageous i explore life courageously i am happy I have amazing friendships i radiate warmth and affection I make people laugh and feel joy I am consciousness I am bold life is beautiful I see the beauty of life I travel whenever I want i travel wherever I want I am wealthy I am free
  3. Two topics one thread 😏 I watched a video on Sadhguru speaking about marijuana use and he says that marijuana, along with other psychedelics dull the system and over a period of time make one incapable of handling life. He said, it gives a feeling of meditativeness but you’re not actually meditative. It makes me wonder if psychedelics are a trick. I watched a seperate video where he spoke about the harm you can do by learning yoga out of a book or in the wrong environment. It made me wonder about going to an ashram and learning directly from a guru.
  4. I feel my spine a lot more and sometimes I can actually feel energy moving up my spine and putting pressure on my third eye area. I feel better in my body in general after doing it for 4ish months now. I haven’t had any samadhi states yet but sometimes when I really put effort into the practice and it goes well I feel a deep sense of peace afterward and a slight dissolution of my boundaries. I think the biggest thing I’ve gained from doing it is that it’s really opened up my curiousity about yoga and now I want to study it a lot more and practice.
  5. Is it not kind of serious that such a realized teacher is telling us these things?
  6. Kriya yoga is a powerful practice but it will take time for you to feel results. psychedelics seem like a promising and fast acting tool. Yoga is probably the best long term thing you can do for your health.
  7. @Thetruthseeker check out sv3rige on YouTube...
  8. My brother is pretty stuck in life and I think a lot of it has to do with his autism. It holds him back a lot and he seems pretty depressed and lonely. I want to help him and I feel like psychedelics can be a powerful tool, but I don’t want to damage him even further. Do you think a 5-Meo-dmt trip with Octavio Rettig would be too much for someone with autism? Are there other psychedelics that could help him better? I think kriya could help him as well but getting someone at his level to do yoga would be quite difficult. I think the potency of psychedelics might be more effective at getting him off the ground quicker.
  9. I drink two cups of raw milk kefir everyday. I ferment it for two days before I make it and it’s pretty yummy. You'll need; raw milk, kefir grains(can buy on amazon), and two jars. You put one tablespoon of grains in one cup of milk, put the lid on the jar lightly and let it sit for one day. Strain the milk into another jar and ferment for one more day then drink. You can reuse the grains to make a batch everyday.
  10. @pluto that’s fascinating. Do they have any follow up videos of him to see how’s he doing months and years after the experience? Ultimately, if I’m going to help my brother with this I want it to help in grow and not just be a cool experience.
  11. I’ve been doing kriya for about 4 months now and the other night I had a dream that my 1st chakra opened and it almost felt like my water broke or something, I’m a guy but I imagined that’s what it feels like to have your water break. Lol And then the other night I was sitting on my bed in the same way when I do yoga and I could feel pressure at my perineum and it felt really good. Do chakras feel really pleasurable when then open or what? If so that would be dope to have all your chakras opened. I get a sense of what Sadhguru is talking about when he says his whole body is in ecstasy.
  12. Following your heart should come first, regardless of fear
  13. On a recent cannabis trip I had the idea that maybe psychedelics can help people with autism. I did some quick research and found that lsd may be helpful for people with autism to overcome there social boundaries and such. Do you guys have any other good information on psychedelics with autism specifically or mental disorders in general? I’m gonna do more research but I figured I’d milk the forum to see if anyone has found some gems before I go looking. Thanks!
  14. Good man keep at it. It takes time but as Napoleon Hill said... “hold and image of yourself in your minds eye for long and steady enough and you will be drawn towards it”
  15. @electroBeam the reason you backslide like that is because subconsciously you still don’t value eating healthy. Consciously you know you should but your subconscious pulls you back. Program your subconscious mind to see the value of eating healthy. Affirmations and mind movies are a great way to do this.
  16. @Max_V storytelling can be your DoM and writing, illustration, and drawing can be your mediums
  17. @Soulbass Maybe if you were completely unconscious you could end up repeating it over, but you have the choice to change it so I don’t think so.
  18. The quality of your relationships. Good relationships keep us happy and healthy. The harvard study of adult Development is a study that’s been going on for over 75 years and the clearest message it has shown for what gives us the most satisfaction in life is close warm relationships. Even enlightened people can get lonely. Humans are a social animal. There’s a ted talk on YouTube about this, check it out.
  19. I haven’t completely found mine but taking Leo’s life purpose course was a great start. I’ve really pushed my boundaries because of it. For example, i probably never would’ve done stand up comedy if I hadn’t taken Leo’s course. The fear would’ve been too much. But after learning what I have I started to explore and ended up facing that fear head on just a few weeks ago. Not 100% sure but stand up comedy might be my passion. I highly recommend Leo’s life purpose course.
  20. Your Life Path Number is 2 Your Life Path Number represents the path you should take through life and the talents and skills you have to make your journey a rewarding one. Those with a Life Path Number of 2 will always seek out balance in all they do. Often you will take the role as peacemaker, which comes natural to you since you are patient, cooperative and not above compromise. Those around you will also benefit from your ability to see all sides of an issue. top Your Life Destiny Number is 6 Your Destiny Number sheds light on those things you must accomplish in your life to be fulfilled. Your purpose in life is to serve by nurturing family and loved ones. Your sense of beauty and community will make you a harmonizing force for those around you. You will bring to our world two qualities it is all too often missing: love and balance. top Your Soul Number is 5 Your Soul Number describes your deepest desires and dreams and the person you truly want to be. Your passion is to be free of limitations. You have a lust for change and the variety of experience which comes with it. You are rebellious and sensual by nature. Routine bores you and you loath having any limitations put on you. top Your Personality Number is 1 Your Personality Number reveals the "external you"--the personality traits others will know you by. As is fitting with the number 1's prime directive to lead, those with a 1 personality number have the qualities of a natural born leader. They are the alphas of the pack and stand out in any group. They are confident, self-reliant and courageous. They are also blessed with a mind capable of formulating innovative solutions to old and new problems alike. As long as the 1 personality does not become overbearing and dogmatic, they should always find themselves in the position for which they were born: the head of the pack. top Mine is pretty accurate I suppose. Do you guys know of anyone with similar numbers that I can google or something?
  21. There’s a balance of course, as with anything.
  22. My horoscope was accurate as fuck this month...
  23. @D13g0 the best way to handle fear is to stare it right in the face and just do it. You’ll be surprised to see that on the other side of fear is bliss. Tell yourself “fuck it” and just do it! 😄
  24. I feel like my life is definitely different from most people’s lives because of the personal development I do. I eat a different diet, have different habits, think about different things, have different goals, etc... but idk that my life is actually better yet. Other than, I know I’m healthier and more mindful than I used to be and have more knowledge. I don’t drink or party every weekend so I feel like other kids my age probably have a lot more fun than me in that regard. I wonder at what point I’ll start to derive a deep fulfillment from my life. I feel like once I implement my life purpose and I’m having my impact in the world I’ll be a lot more satisfied with daily life.
