More understanding is coming to me. You create a vacuum when you exit Maha Mudra by letting less air in compared to the amount of space that you open up in your breathing passageway by coming out of Uddiyana and Jalahandra. Your lower breathing passageway is trying to suck air in and your tongue is the valve that is letting the air in. The higher the pressure you keep, the quicker it will still the tissues in your lungs and breathing passage.
At any time you want (after kechari stage 2 is achieved), you can seal the lower part of the breathing passage with the tongue and then blow air out the nose and create an even stronger vacuum in the upper nasal pharynx. This will allow you to very intensely stretch out your tongue making it longer and more importantly thinner. You need a thinner tongue because as Jesus said “narrow is the way” to slide your tongue up into your nose and push on the nerves above it. Creating a high pressure atmosphere in your upper nasal cavity causes the tongue to dance a bit and makes licking the G-Spot tissue for Amrit child’s play for the tongue. As I wrote before, this also causes the nasal pharynx’s concavity to contract putting the ear flaps underneath the tongue creating a suction to pull out the Amrit. The stillness in your lungs from compressing the air puts you in a really deep meditative state. I wrote about wanting to do this 8 months ago.
This is what happened when I first had the vision of the archway. Sometimes when I put my tongue into the nasal passageways, there is a flap in each covering the holes, sometimes there is no flap in either nostril, but most of the time there is a flap in one or the other nostril. Meaning one side of the brain is dominate. (one nadi is flowing more than the other – energy imbalance) When I first started doing the Sham-Kech-Moo Kriya 6, something I was doing was making both flaps appear, this created the vacuum in my nasal pharynx that would pull on my tongue. And so my tongue kept gagging me because my frenulum was too long and so my tongue couldn’t go up and was bunching at the back of my throat. That explains the physiological part of the experience, the vision of the archway was the divine telling me to keep doing what your doing, you found the path, Kechari is the key!
I was wrong to say there is some magnetic attraction between Ajna and Vishuddha, it was just a vacuum that I somehow created by having both nostrils covered with the small flap of skin that comes out sometimes and covers the top of them. I did the Kriya just like it is written in the book in Siddhasana, Kechari (obviously), and I would squeeze off 10 to 20 moos on the exhale kumbhaka. That, the grace of the divine or something made both flaps cover my nostrils and this happened multiple times and many different days. Turning your kundalini on is just stilling the air in the lungs long enough so that the Apana mixes with the Prana.
Practicing a lot of Talabyas help because you are constantly sealing off the throat in the first part of the exercise. Maybe the act of doing that 200 times causes both flaps in the nostrils to appear. I have to figure out what makes both flaps appear because that is the key to turning on your kundalini before you reach kechari stage 2. After you reach stage two, you just do what I described above and I think Shazam! You just have to seal off the nasal pharynx with your tongue and keep some pressure in the lower breathing chambers.
I completely understand what Yukteshwar meant by saying you learn a lot more from practice than you will ever learn reading a book. When you truly want to know the truth about who and what you are (practice), the divine will help you and guide you along the way.
I am amazed that I have never read about these flaps in any yoga book especially because I now realize the importance of them. In fact here is a tribute video of Satyananda. The reason he is leaning on that crutch in the pictures at 2:10, 2:34, 2:46, 2:55, and 6:02 always on the left side is he is making the Ida nadi dominate (keeping the flap covering the right nostril so the left nostril is open and the right part of the brain is dominate. I’ve read that meditation is much more effective with the right brain dominate:
Seeking, you’ve been in Kechari for almost a year now. What is your experience with these flaps in the holes of the nasal openings? Have you put your tongue through the holes and felt the tissue up above them?
Here is a diagram of what the nasal pharynx feels like with the tongue:
(Obviously nothing is to perfect scale)
The bottom three quarters of a square line is your tongue. It is impossible to slip it in the nasal passage way without turning it. The small ovals with the black line in the middle are the top of the two nasal passages. The black line in the middle is the top part of the nasal septum. This area conducts a lot of electricity with the top round part conducting the most. The quarter moon shapes are the flaps of the ears with the dots being the tunnel to the ears. These flaps protrude out into the nasal pharynx. I have no idea what role creating a vacuum in this chamber is doing to the ear tunnels. They always seem blocked when I try to equalize (a scuba diving technique where you block your nose with your fingers and blow out your nose sending the air out your ears.
As you can see by this drawing, the ear flaps are in a position to help turn the tongue sideways to slip into the nose holes. When you create a vacuum in the pharynx and raise the tongue, they slide underneath the tongue at the sides which creates a suction pulling out the Amrit from the G-Spot tissue on the back side of the pharynx. The top half of the diagram represents the back side of the nasal pharynx. The small circles at the top are the G-Spot tissue and the round circle in the middle is a bony protrusion sticking out.
In retrospect, I should have made the small ovals (nasal openings) black like the ear tunnels.
This is the type of conversation that I want to have with people. I want to talk about the physiological aspects of Kriya Yoga. The reason I am writing this is because I am so grateful for Ennio, Manoj, AYPsite, Anmol Mehta putting out all the information that they do for free guiding me to the point I’m at right now. Hopefully somebody can benefit from my experience.
I’m still flipping out over Jesus talking about Kechari in his Sermon of the Mount!
I don’t understand Jnana and when other people talk about samadhi – but it doesn’t matter, my path is Kriya… Both the Lahiri linage and Sivananda linage say that Samadhi comes after the kundalini is turned on. I have read that Ramana was jnana. I have read some of his stuff and bought two of his books that I have to get to. He became enlightened in a flash and didn’t eat for months. David Hawkins says that about 50% of people that become enlightened just check out and die. They’ve had enough of the body and don’t want to return.
A guy I converse with at the gym says that Yukteshwar was a Jnana. His guru was Lahiri so that doesn’t make sense to me. He is in SRF and so we can’t talk in much depth. I don’t think I can untie my mind with my mind. I would much rather practice the breathing techniques.
I remember reading about how Yogananda was about to swat a mosquito that was sucking his blood and he looked up and saw his guru looking at him. Yukteshwar said you might as well kill it because you already have the karma for it by thinking about doing it. I love David Hawkins talk about a Tyrannosaurus Rex being a great example of the ego. It’s all about me. It doesn’t care about the feelings of the things that it eats. So of course you want to kill the people that cut you off in traffic. They don’t deserve to live. Of course little Susie wants to drowned her playmate and eat all the cookies. That’s the ego. I would like to watch all of Hawkins DVD’s but it costs several thousand dollars for them.
I’ve been studying The Course of Miracles which Hawkins highly recommends and is Jnana. And I believe it helps you recognize the games the mind plays. Hawkins says you should bless anyone that cuts you off in traffic because they are reminding you that you are too attached to the world. He also says that as you raise your consciousness (through Jnana practices like the book A Course in Miracles) that the chakras will open and the energy will rise to your heart.
I think I now know everything that I need to know to make it to the first stage of samadhi. I have a feeling my guru will be waiting for me when I get there. I don’t know about opening up the rest of the chakras yet and how all that fits in. Also don’t know what is the best way to get the Amrit flowing before I can tip over the holy grail with my tongue. Who knows how long it is going to take to stretch the tongue and then be able to get through the electricity above the nasal holes?
Thank you for the private note and I agree with most of what you said. That said I feel compelled to continue to share. Karma – the more I try to help other people – the more help will be giving to me. I am slowly piecing this together but there are still some gray areas that I need help with.
