I think spiritual bliss has these 3 main causes:
1. Shakti Bliss
Shakti energy in your body causes bliss. It also makes your body sensations feel more and more like bliss.
Ways to increase your baseline shakti:
- (1) by having a high baseline void dimension
In my experience, the higher my void dimension, the higher the shakti bliss.
How to increase your baseline void dimension: Link
- (2) by having an awakened kundalini
How to awaken your kundalini:
high void dimension
advanced invocations, psychedelics, shamanic breathing, whole body orgasms, kriya supreme fire
and least effective; kundalini yoga, kriya yoga, meditation
- (3) by receiving Shaktipat transmissions
in person intensives
online live transmissions
recorded video or audio transmissions during meditation and during as much of your daily activities (including sleep) as possible
Jan Esmann and Gareth have the strongest shaktipat in my opinion.
- (4) by doing Invocations of Ascended Masters
The higher the shakti of an ascended master the better.
The higher your energetic sensitivity, the stronger Invocations and transmissions become. How to: Link
Keep in mind that shakti energy is different from just prana or chi, or the energy of most transmissions and invocations. Prana or chi is not blissful. In case your prana or chi ever turns blissful (for example through kriya yoga) then that's because of shakti, probably due to activating the kundalini.
At least that's my current understanding.
The higher your unconditional acceptance, the higher your spiritual bliss.
I talked about that in the previous post.
How to increase your acceptance skill:
willingness to accept what you don't like
presence, mindfulness and self-awareness
void dimension (a high void dimension makes surrender and acceptance a lot easier. Acceptance is actually a natural effect of a high void dimension)
Being conscious of non-dual nature increases bliss.
The more profound your enlightened state, the higher the bliss.
The level of profoundness depends on:
which facets of awakening you're conscious of
surrender and deconstruction of the ego mind.
So these are the main causes for spiritual bliss:
shakti (energetic state)
acceptance (mind state)
enlightenment (consciousness state)
