Magick / Where did Crowley get his asanas?
« on: October 18, 2015, 11:22:46 AM »
So I finally got around to reading some of Crowley's material, and the guy seems to use some odd asanas. For instance in the picture below, I am familiar with the Dragon and the God, but the Ibis and the Thunderbolt I have never seen before. So far, Crowley is the only person I've ever seen using the Thunderbolt (which he is using for pranayama in the 2nd image) and the Ibis. I am wondering if anyone knows why he chose these postures and where they might have come from.

Spirituality / Good books on Buddha and Buddhism?
« on: December 05, 2014, 09:17:33 PM »
Can anyone recommend any good books on Buddhism? I'm mostly interested in books on the life of Buddha, but any good books on Buddhism will do. Anything inspirational is also good. There are just so many books on the subject out there that I don't always know what is credible and what is not. Thanks

Dreams / Third eye stimulation
« on: April 03, 2012, 08:48:51 AM »
Had this dream a few weeks ago, but I wrote down the details I could remember. It was a lucid dream, and in my dream I was lying down on a bed or a table. Knowing I was dreaming, I concentrated both my eyes on the point between my eyebrows. Instantly I felt a rush of energy growing stronger and magnetizing towards my brow. As I looked in, it was like looking down a cylinder. In the center was a purple spinning vortex, and on the sides there were what looked like glyphs displayed. The energy quickly became very intense and I ceased concentration as I became worried I would harm myself. I woke up with my brow area stimulated. Any interpretations of what could have been going on?

Magick / Anxiety after meditation
« on: March 29, 2012, 02:30:53 PM »
I don't meditate as often as I should, but sometimes when I do mindfulness meditation I get moderate to severe anxiety afterwards. I am fine during my meditation; it only happens after. Any reason why this could be happening? Subconscious fears surfacing maybe?

Magick / Waking at 4 AM
« on: June 28, 2011, 05:41:28 PM »
I have heard from multiple sources that 4 am is the best time to wake and begin spiritual practices. I was just wondering if I am in an area with daylights savings time then should I wake at 4 am daylights savings time or 4 am standard time (which would be 5 am daylight savings time)?

Spirituality / Prayer
« on: December 03, 2010, 08:33:51 AM »
I tend to find myself praying for extra help when I need it, but at the same time, I don't really know what I'm praying to besides just a higher power in general. Quite often my prayers are very successful (I don't ask for anything impossible) and I'll receive an answer in some form or another in the following few days. I was just wondering who you all pray to, or if you pray at all.

Body Energy Arts / Constant brow pressure
« on: August 28, 2010, 11:23:42 PM »
I had an inquiry about my brow chakra that I was hoping someone here could answer. About a year and a half ago I started feeling a light pressure between my brows after a bike ride, and after that I've been feeling it on and off ever since. It usually happens daily multiple times a day, and the pressure gets stronger the more I focus on it (Although sometimes it will get stronger on it's own depending on what I'm doing). I'm going to say it's safe to assume this is my brow chakra, but my question is about why this happens and what exactly is it doing? Does it mean anything when it does this or am I just stimulating it somehow? I've done some mild energy work based off Robert Bruce's Energy Work, but the sensations started long before that. If anyone could share some information about this with me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
