Menstruation- Nature’s guide to meditation 

This is an intricate science. It is based on the principle of the energy body. The energy body is represented by seven chakras. This is where it gets complicated rather than easy as almost everyone feels they know the chakra system. There is a lot of garbage available on the internet about the chakra system.

Therefore, to understand this science, you need to leave behind your knowledge about the chakra system and of course arrogance of being a feminist. 

You need to understand 3 concepts: 

  1. Interconnection of seven chakras  
  2. The flow of energy upwards and downward 
  3. Nature (Prakurti) of women and how it is different from men 

1. 7 chakras are interconnected. Look at it like seven-floor building getting water supply from one water tank through pipelines going to each house. Then there is another pipeline which is carrying wastewater out of the building. A small blockage in one pipe anywhere can affect the flow of energy flowing through the entire chakra system network. Though it never really blocks one pipe so strong that the entire flow is choked. When that happens, it is a severe case of mental disorder. But a tiny obstruction is enough to disturb your energy flow and affect your health and wellbeing, making you struggle for something you are pursuing. Be it money, peace, relationship, happiness, success or just feeling nice about life. Obstruction is caused by the formation of belief. Take love. Your heart chakra is fully open. Your emotions are full of love. You are vibrating so high in love that your entire body feels vibrations. This means all your chakra are now vibrating at one frequencyIt is known as resonance in physics and you may know it as orgasm stateIt is like seven instruments playing their unique frequency in a piece of music. Imagine if they all fuse their own frequencies to create just one sound. You suddenly get a thought- what if your love fails. A doubt. Probably based on previous experience. This doubt if persists, can give fear. You experience this at the root chakra. You continue to have the same intense desire but now you begin to feel guilty about it. This is at Swadhisthan chakra. The energy of fear from Root chakra now affects your desire It further travels up to ManipuraYou begin to feel ashamed of your desire. Now your ego comes in. Your protector. You now first want to ensure if your love will be successful this time or not. This closes the heart chakra. As that valve closes, ego begins to grow, desire begins to dry up and transform into anger and you begin to feel unstable (at Root chakra). You must act now. Either you release through crying or you seek assurance and validation from your man or because the valvat heart chakra is closed nowthe currents which were going downwards, now return upward causing suffocation in Vishuddhi and making your mind active to work out various survival methods to manage both. Love and doubt. Has love gone out of your system? No. It is now contaminated due to a belief which got triggered causing doubt. 

2. Take a thought or a wish. Let us take simple one- You want to have a cup of tea. Technically, you wish to manifest drinking tea. This means the materialization of your thought/need/wish/desire. If this is not materialized, then it remains stuck inside you and you have various emotions around it coming from the lack of fulfilment of a wish or desire as the energy of this wish moves from one chakra to another. 

Internally, at the energy levelthis thought needs to travel in your lower chakras (Root, Swadhisthan, and Manipura) and this is how it builds energy in you to get up and make tea for yourself and enjoy drinking. This means any thought or an insight or a desire you have, needs to pass through Manipura further down till Root chakra for manifestation. Likewise, every thought where you become intimate with yourself will mean feeling distanced from the material world. Such a desire shall travel up in towards the upper chakras (VishuddhiAgneya, and Crown). The heart chakra is a two-way valve that regulates the flow upwards and downwards. 

So, there is a downward current and an upward current. It is circular in nature. You probably know it as grounding emotions. This is what is happening at the energy level through the network of pipelines of the chakra system. Every thought, need, or desire has energy. Energy to detach or energy to attach. Based on which current is prominent- upward or downward. You know some people hold grudges or anger and you ask them to forget and they cannot? They cannot ground the emotion because it is stuck in the chakra due to their belief. This is where the pipeline is choked. But such is not an issue with you. You are a nice human being. 

3. Love it and accept it. Hating or ignoring is very harmful to you. From the time of menstruation till menopause, the nature of a woman is such that she is wired to create and manifest on earth. She is earth-bound. Her chakra and energy system are channelized for the manifestation of any desire. This is the reason women are nurturers at the core. It is their Prakurti. Let us not fight nature. This is the reason you probably hear men talk that his fortune shot up after he got married. His woman is lucky for him. This is because he shared a vision with her and she silently nurtured it and it got manifested. This is how we started to put pressure on women to perform  

During the 4 days, all her energies are moving downwards. Both pipeline systems are operating at the same time. She is cleansing and you may want to call that she is purifying. No, she is not impure in these four days. She is releasing all forms of toxicity in these four days. She bounces back to perfect health and an absolute balanced state of spirit-body-mind through this processA privilege is given to this gender. She has the opportunity to ground every form of toxicity from her deeds, acts, wishes, emotions, and thoughts through a chemical processThis is the reason women were considered the epitome of health and wellbeing. This is the reason when periods are delayed, women are gripped by an unknown fear for their wellbeing. Pain during periods is a symbol that emotions that got suppressed are now being released. In the process, through the second pipeline system, she is nurturing a vision or an insight that is creating an energy field for the manifestation. It is important that she is relaxing and her mind is not active during these days so that there is no interference to manifesting desires or wishes. 

Worshipping, chanting, praying, meditation or any religious or spiritual activity triggers an upward current. Higher energies circulation in the pineal gland (Agneya chakra) interferes with the downwards currents 

Humanity had this wisdom in ancient times. Probably to keep men away from her and allow her to stay with her vision, she was kept out from all kinds of physical and mental work. They probably said she is purifying and someone started to say she is impure. Distortion of science and was used to manipulate women. Due to the absence of a good hygiene system, she was restricted for her movement but that was only relevant to ancient times. Not at all anymore. 

Forget visiting the temple, ideally, women shall capitalize this gift given to them by staying with their desires, love, vision for self and family or humanity- whatever connects them to their spirit and it will get nurtured on its own. Take less work. Stay in body and stay with desire, withdraw and keep social interactions to the minimum. Touch your spirit with art forms. Why would you go out to beg for food when you are producing and feeding many?  

Note: Women who are book readers (Meditation-The Cure) know how to stay with the breath during these days and nurture a desire.

Responses

  1. Each and every word makes sense and is totally relatable. No wonder my husband’s vision got clouded as I failed to be a nurturer and now, as I have worked on myself through chetna-vedna-manthan, his vision is clear once again.

  2. Beautifully written sir. Many temples are built to work on different chakras. Like the controversial Sabarimala temple which does not allow women of reproductive age to go. This temple specifically works of the Agnya chakra while the Bhagavathy temple at the base of Sabarimala works on the Swadhistan. Many Shiva temples have Shakti added much later to balance and neutralize the intense energy shifts to its visitors.

    Personally, I have experienced the shift of energy through my body after Manthan. I had taken a break from all yoga practices while I was going through Chetna, Vedna and Manthan. I wanted to restart doing yoga and tried the first pose and felt intense energy rise up to the Agneya and Crown. I stopped immediately. Took about 30 minutes or so for the energy to return to the lower chakras.

Nothing lives inside us without being fed by our breath.

While drawing our algorithm, we start with identifying our symptoms. Do we look at our symptoms of today or from our childhood? Our tendencies also seem like they are about today and not from our childhood. How should I interpret this?

You can start with identifying your symptoms today and make your Algorithm identifying your Lack, Tendency and Pattern. It may seem like the tendencies are loud and clear today. This is only because as an adult, you are either more aware of it, or the tendency is more pronounced. However, if you go back to that age group of 7-14, you will find that the same tendency existed back then as well.  

For example – your lack is abandonment and so your tendency is need to prove/ excel. As an adult, you try extremely hard to prove yourself at work, but maybe as a ten-year-old you wanted to make sure that you win a colouring competition or feel worthy by collecting the maximum number of berries or fruits. 

 So, you would notice how the nature of tendency existed even back then – sometimes subtly, sometimes pronounced. It is just a matter of developing sensitivity to recognize it in that time and space. However, you can always work with current scenarios. 

Now that I have made my algorithm and have identified my lack, what do I do with this? Do I have to re-visit my childhood?

In every moment of disappointment – current or past, you can experience the lack. There are two ways to attend to the lack, once identified – 

  1.  You may simply keep your Algorithm/Lack in awareness by writing the events of the current time and go into breathing 
  2. You can revisit your childhood and write about moments that you experienced the Lack/Algorithm and once you have written a few events (in detail), you may lay down and begin to observe your breath. 

In either of the processes, your Algorithm/lack is in your complete awareness and observing your breath after this would only bring an expansion in your awareness. 

After finding my LTP and mapping my algorithm, I can see how I have suffered in my childhood and continue to do so. What can I do to remedy this and reverse my suffering?

 Since you are seeking the cure, you must know that state of meditation is the state of cure. The more you are in this state, the more you move towards light, thus curing your suffering.  

All the things which come into your awareness, must now be attended to by Observing your breath. For process of attending to what has surfaced, refer to Ques no 8
