This is a technique that is in the lessons and in the SRF Magazine from Yogananda. i thought it interesting in the sense that it is one that has been presented to the public:

Center the attention in the spiritual spine start by saying and visualizing:

Om Coccyx

then moving up to the next chakra:

Om Sacral

Om Lumbar

Om Dorsal

Om Cervical

Om Medulla

Om Christ

Then reverse the process going back down to the Coccyx

Thanks for sharing this, Jitendraji.

As somebody who is a relative neophyte to meditative practises, would it be better for me to practise Hong Sau for a while before trying this?

Thanks,

i have been blessed lately to be at many of the SRF services. Brahamachiri Alexander told everyone this technique at the morning meditation (some of these people might have known nothing about any SRF techniques). i hope not to have to wait till some one leaves my life to be inspired to make a further effort. But it is true that it has been some of those kind of 'heavy lessons' that moved me. Although in this case i would say that this is one more interesting stimulus that may enhance a well worn routine.

After so many of the heavy lessons we begin to take the blessings more often and do something with them even in the best of times.  Life is for the learning~ Live to Learn~ and so i hope always to be receptive to you as well. That is when you have a suggestion you may think will help.

If we truly believe that the Guru can guide us in our path then we are cognizant of the fact that he is never giving us more than we can handle at our present state of development. This i often find hard to accept in my wavering faith. But still i do recognize the problem i am combating.....

My story is very similar to yours, Into Blue, in that a friend introduced me to his writings. Unfortunately, she passed on before I really started to take a great interest, as I was still at that time trying to get to grips with Krishna Consciousness, as described by Prabhupada, which was her pure path. My friend was in many ways the person who led me to a spiritual path at all. It was only through her battle with cancer that I learned that if you call, He (God) will help. I attended a C of E primary school, but had found that my faith, though strong, was beginning to waver in a God who, as far as I could tell, would not directly intercede...it took a long time before I realised that whenever you see a small change in a situation where you have prayed, that is His work. Paramhansaji's teachings have shaped my life since Chris' death, really. They've helped me walk the process more than any other guru, so much so that I donated the Prabhupada books to a charity shop after a fashion. I pray that the one who led me to Paramhansaji's teachings is now at peace.

The best way to find God is through technique. There is a method to everything we study and religion is just as much a scientific discipline as are medicine and mathematics. So also is a science of spiritual techniques~Paramahansa Yogananda

This is a technique that is in the lessons and in the SRF Magazine from Yogananda. i thought it interesting in the sense that it is one that has been presented to the public. i thought i would go thru this one more time since this added info might help:

Center the attention in the spiritual spine start by saying (to yourself) and visualizing:

Om Coccyx at the base of the spine

then moving up to the next chakra about two inches up:

Om Sacral

Om Lumbar; opposite the navel

Om Dorsal; opposite the heart

Om Cervical at the shoulder blades

Om Medulla; back of neck

Om Christ; point between and slightly up from the eyebrows

Then reverse the process going back down to the Coccyx

This can be done over and over as the consciousness interiorizes and loosens from roudy sense distractions.

hey Jitendra !  Cool

if meditation techniques are the best way to find God, so much searching, can take lifetimes it seems

does one ever find God ? does this happen only to spiritual devotees close to Gurus ? or those living in Holy Lands ?
we always hear of people ' searching ' for God - yet never hear of people ' finding God ' - or if so, very few

why ?

People never find God because they don't know what they are looking for. They are expecting a certain thing to be their end result. If one were seeking enlightenment would you know when you were there? or would you realize it was there all along you had just misplaced it?

Technique does help you to "reach God" for a better way of understanding. It allows you to focus your mind on such an outcome. Instead of your mind being all over the place.

To truly find God you have to strip away everything in your life, mind, body, spirit, to find what is always there. People have a head time finding God because they are looking for something that is separate. Most see God as a separate person directing traffic sitting in the clouds.

Thanks for the response and thoughts Amor and Secret Squirrel. i just wanted to add this: Yes i think all of us find God in our lives. It is to what extent that we realize we are finding God that often concerns us. We all have certain experiences with God that let us know we are finding him/her. We at times have the good fortune of seeing someone who has found out much more about God. Even to the extent that there does not appear to be a separation between the object of our seeking and ourselves. Yes we hear of people finding God but we do not choose to investigate. So who do we have to blame for lack of results in seeking? It is as simple as going to Chicago this summer and seeing Amma. You will find a person who has found God. Or you can take the SRF lessons and you will start to have small glimpses of your own divinity. You have to take the first step. No one can do it for you.
