Meditation Practices


A Collection of Gnostic Practices for Meditation 


Relaxation-The Heartbeat (Meditation)

Comfortably seated, relax your physical body completely, from the toes up to the crown of your head.

With the eyes of your imagination, try to see one by one, all your bones, muscles, nerves, arteries, cells, atoms, etc.

Then concentrate on your heartbeat. Now move these heartbeats to the tip of your nose, you should feel them there; then to your right ear, right hand, right foot, left foot, left hand, left ear, once again to your nose and heart. Thus you will realize that you can master your heartbeat at will. Do this practice daily for at least forty five minutes.

-Mayan Misteries, Samael Aun Weor


Control of Respiration (Meditation)

The disciple will take a comfortable position, either sitting down or in a supine position (laying down on his back on a bed or the floor). The student will focus on his breathing, becoming aware of his physical body. He will exhale, retain his breath and inhale in a consistent rate of breathing. First, the student will inhale counting from one to twelve. Then he will perform the exhalation, again counting from one to twelve, while relaxing his physical body, letting go, and releasing any tensions.  This exercise will be repeated as many times as needed, until the body becomes totally relaxed.



Exercise to Relax (Meditation)

Without mental force it is impossible to achieve the crystallization of a project (commercial, etc.). It is necessary for our students to learn how to handle mental force; but first it is necessary for the student to learn how to relax his physical body. It is indispensable to know how to relax the body to achieve the perfect concentration of thought. 

We can relax the body seated in a comfortable chair or lying down in the corpse posture (in decubito dorsal, that is to say on our back, mouth up, with our heels touching each other and our arms at our sides).The second of the two positions is better. Imagine that your feet are subtle, that a group of dwarves escape from them.  Imagine that your calves are full of small playful dwarves that leave one by one and that, as they leave, the muscles become flexible and elastic. Continue with your knees, performing the same exercise. Continue with the thighs, sexual organs, abdomen, heart, throat, face and head muscles, successively, imagining that those small dwarves flee from each of those parts of the body leaving the muscles completely relaxed.

-Introduction to Gnosis, Samael Aun Weor


Mental Force Exercise (Meditation)

Hang a silk thread from the ceiling of your room with a needle at the end of the thread.

Concentrate on that needle and try to move it with the power of thought. Mental waves,

when developed, can move this needle. Work ten minutes daily on this exercise. In the

beginning, the needle at the end of the silk thread will not move but, with time, you will

see that the needle oscillates and moves vigorously. This exercise is to develop mental

power.Remember that mental waves travel through space and pass from one brain to the next.

-Introduction to Gnosis, Samael Aun Weor


Practice to Observe (Psychology and Self-Knowledge-Meditation)

First of all, relax. Relax as deeply as you can. There should be no muscle in tension. Become more aware of yourself. Deeply, fully, actively aware. To be aware means to be actively looking. 

“To know and to observe are different. Many confuse the observation of oneself with knowing. For example, even though we know that we are seated in a living room, this does not signify that we are observing the chair.” 

Try to see yourself as separate from yourself, as if this body is merely an actor.

The thoughts and feelings are a critic next to the stage, a critic who will not shut up. Do not try to make him be quiet. Just stop giving him your attention. Separate from him.

The sense of separation, the sense of active awareness, is the foundation of every mystical practice that exists on the face of the earth and in every other dimension.

- Samael Aun Weor, Revolutionary Psychology


Diet for Meditation (Meditation-Health)

The devotee must not meditate with a full stomach. it is necessary for the devotee to abandon the sin of gluttony. We must eat only three meals per day. 

Esoteric Diet:

Breakfast: basted bread with pure honey, hot milk and fruit.

Lunch: Must consist of vegetables, fruits and any type of grain.

Dinner: Bread with pure honey and hot milk. Nothing more.

Meditation should he performed at 10:00 p.m. nightly. Meditation should also be

performed at dawn. If the student meditates during these hours, he will progress rapidly.

-Yellow Book, Samael Aun Weor


Meditation Weekly Practice (Meditation)

Make a place for yourself to meditate. It should be clean, quiet, free of distractions, well-ventilated (but not drafty), and provide you with a means to sit in complete and total relaxation, with a straight back.

Sit in a very relaxed posture. Take a few moments to make sure you are relaxed in every way. Take note of your psychological mood.

Determine that you will not reflect on any problems in your life, or unresolved situations, or plans, or memories. Take this time as a break from everything.

For the next few minutes, vocalize the vowel “O” and imagine a warm light glowing in your heart. Relax deeper and deeper. Allow the sound to penetrate throughout your entire being, and imagine the light growing and illuminating everything within. Relax deeper and deeper. Let go of everything but that light and warmth. Focus completely on imagining the light in your heart and the sound “O” filling everything.

Rest silently.  Observe yourself with a sense of detachment or distance. Watch every impression that enters into you or that emerges from within.  Watch carefully, but without tension.  Rest, and watch.

Afterward, when you get up from this practice, look around you as if you have never been in this place before. See everything as if it were new.

Do this practice everyday without fail. Continue with this practice for at least one week before moving on to the next practice.

Preliminary Concentration Experiment 1: The Candle Practice 1  (Meditation)

Find a place where you can sit in complete comfort. Place a candle so you can see the flame. Keep your eyes open and have a very relaxed posture.

Steadily and progressively become aware of the muscles of the body. Start at the top of your head and move downward, relaxing all the muscles. Imagine the tension evaporating, rising up like smoke or steam. Be thorough. You will find tension in surprising places.

After relaxing all the muscles of the body, place your attention on the candle flame. Then you simply keep your attention on the candle flame. Do not allow your mind to pull your attention into thoughts or dreams or memories or plans. Your goal is to maintain complete concentration on the candle flame.

Maintain this control over attention for ten to fifteen minutes. Every time you lose your attention into a distraction, simply return to concentrating on the candle. Do not judge yourself or congratulate yourself. Simply observe.

Time yourself by setting an alarm. Do not watch the clock or trust your sense of time. These are distractions of attention. You need to develop the capacity to be 100% focused on one thing. Even a little 5% awareness of time is not acceptable.

In the beginning, do not meditate for too long. You will burn yourself out. Short sessions are better, maybe 10 or 15 minutes. If you want more than that, do 10 minutes, take a break, then do another ten minutes. You are more likely to develop deeper concentration if you work in small sessions. Sitting longer means there is a higher risk of losing concentration or becoming distracted. Only gradually should you increase your Meditation time. Of course, in later stages you should have developed enough conscious awareness that the length of the session is irrelevant, because you never lose your attention into anything. At this stage, one meditates for as long as it takes to accomplish whatever goals we have for that session. Monks in the Tibetan tradition begin learning to meditate by performing short sessions of ten to fifteen minutes. They will do this twenty or thirty times a day, and only gradually will they increase the length of the session.

Do this practice every day. It is best to do it at a time when you are naturally at rest: in the early morning or in the evening. Some people become drowsy in the midafternoon (4 or 5 o'clock); take advantage of the body's natural pauses. What is important is to develop consistency. If you skip days, you are crippling your own ability to progress. BE CONSISTENT. 


Preliminary Concentration Experiment 1: The Candle Variation 2  (Meditation)

Follow the instructions for the first practice. Now as you observe the flame, pay attention to the fluctuations and changes of the flame. Notice how subtle changes are; changes in color, transparency, vibration, motion, rhythm, etc. The flame never stays the same; it is constantly changing. This is not an exercise in thought: it is an exercise in observational powers. Pay attention to the changes: do not think about them, or compare them, or wonder about them: just watch them happen as they happen. Do not lose a moment of its activity!


Preliminary Concentration Experiment 1: The Candle Variation 3  (Meditation)

Now, as an experiment, observe the candle flame, but pay attention to your hands. Observe how you can be looking at one thing, but paying attention to another. Attention is not dependent on sight. Neither is it dependent on any other physical sense. This is a very important phenomena to understand.

Notice that you can be looking at the candle and have your attention on your body or on a sound or on a daydream. Can you see how you can look at one thing and yet pay attention to another?

For example, you can watch the candle with your eyes, but you can be paying attention to a sensation on your body. This is called Division of Attention, and it is an important skill, but at this stage of practice it is an obstacle. In the beginning, you cannot have that separation if you want to develop strong concentration. You cannot be divided in that way. One hundred percent of your attention has to be focused on the object of attention. So when you are working to develop concentration, DO NOT divide your attention. Focus all of your attention on your object.

The reality is, though, that we all find our minds to be a see of chaos; how can we concentrate with such noise in our heads?

This is the beginning obstacle. Here is your candle, here is your attention, you are looking at it, you are watching it, but what happens inevitably? Thoughts, emotions, sensations, all kinds of information in the three brains is there to distract us; memories, worries, etc. Past and future. There is a pendulum. Bad and good, past and future etc. This is how the mind functions: the pendulum, duality, back and forth. 

Every distraction, every sensation, every thought, every feeling, has the potential to absorb some percentage of your attention. Your job is to learn how to focus 100% of your attention on the candle flame. The fastest way to do that is actually very simple: notice what in you is not paying attention to the candle flame. 

You sit to meditate, you observe the candle, and you feel pain in your knee, you have this thought about money, you have a latent anxiety. These are all happening simultaneously. That means, let's say 10% of your attention is on your knee, 50% is thinking about money, 20% is anxious, and 10% is counting time (waiting for the Meditation to be over) and that leaves only 10% left there all alone trying to focus on the candle flame. What are you to do?


Mindfulness (Meditation)

If you observe the candle and you realize thoughts of money keep coming, then you simply look at those thoughts for a moment and then you withdraw attention from them. You pay attention to them momentarily, then you stop paying attention to them. You must recognize the distraction first. If you ignore it, it will take longer. If you look at it for a moment then let it go, you will be able to develop concentration much faster. With each distraction that we notice and let go, we increase the strength of our attention on our primary object. That means you will be more and more focused on the object of Meditation.

This is the basis of mindfulness: to remain consciously aware of what we are doing. Notice what is trying to keep your attention, then marshal your willpower to focus on the object of Meditation. So gradually, by noticing what is distracting you, you focus more and more attention on the object. Gradually your concentration will become more robust. With continued practice, you will be able to focus your attention easily and the mind will naturally calm down. Take your Consciousness away from the distracting elements and they will naturally subside. It is natural, you do not have to force anything. It happens on its own.

You measure the success of this level of practice by how long you can remain focused on the object of Meditation. Actually in the beginning, you measure by whether or not you can remember you are there to meditate! That is the first gate. Many people sit to meditate and in a few seconds forget, then the whole 10 or 15 minutes goes by and they realize, "Wait a minute, I am supposed to be meditating!" That has to be changed, because if you forget that you are doing it, you are not doing it.

What if you notice a pain? In this stage of practice you can move if you have pain. Sitting in pain is pointless. The point is to develop relaxation and concentration. Develop a good posture but do not keep moving the whole time, because that will become a serious obstacle. If you have real willpower, if you really want to push, do not move at all. At certain stage of the practice you have to develop that skill. At some point, to move further, you must stop moving completely. We will talk about that later. So at this stage, make an adjustment if you have pain. The pain is just a distraction; move a little bit, let it go and keep concentrating. Eventually, pain will not be an obstacle. 


Weekly Practice (Meditation)

Spend ten to fifteen minutes relaxing and vocalizing the sound "O." While vocalizing, visualize a strong, warm light in your heart.

Spend ten to fifteen minutes concentrating your attention on the flame of the candle. Do not allow your mind to wander at all. You can measure your ability to concentrate by length of time you maintain continuity of attention. If the mind becomes distracted, return to concentrating.

Throughout, one should continue relaxing deeper and deeper.

Do this practice everyday without exception. It is necessary to develop strong discipline in order to advance in the Gnostic Work.


Weekly Practice (Meditation)

Continue the previous practice of relaxing, vocalizing the vowel O and then concentrating on the candle flame. After about ten minutes of observing the candle with your eyes open, close your eyes and visualize the candle flame. If you lose your attention into thinking, simply return to the visualization. Apply the techniques from this lecture. Do not become tense. If you find that you are unable to maintain your mindfulness when you close your eyes, then simply continue to concentrate on the candle with your eyes open. Try again another day to close your eyes and visualize. Little by little we develop these skills. Regardless, do this practice every day!

Relax the Three Brains (Psychology and Self-Knowledge-Meditation)

To relax the body, use your attention. Begin at the top of your head, and slowly and methodically become aware of every muscle and joint and tendon; move your attention over your body as if you are looking for something very small and subtle, and the only way you can find it is by relaxing. Each area that you examine needs to relax. You may find tension everywhere, even in places you would never expect to find it. Let it go.

It can be helpful to visualize the tension evaporating off of you like a black smoke.

Relax all of your muscles so that they become soft like a baby.

Next, relax your emotional center. Become aware of your mood. Notice any anxiety, fear, excitement, discouragement, resentment, anger, loneliness, irritation, self-loathing, self-love, etc. Become aware of them, and let them dissolve just as you let the tension go in the muscles.

Finally, become aware of the tension in your intellect. The chaotic flow of thoughts is actually a result of tension. Become aware of the variety of thoughts that are arising, and separate yourself from them. You are the observer, not the thoughts. The meditator must establish a permanent separation between the observer (the Consciousness, the attention) and the observed (any phenomena: thoughts, feelings, sensations.)

In summary, true relaxation is in all three brains. We must release the tension in all three brains, and separate from all the sensations that arise in them. Only then can we as a Consciousness, as an essence, enter into real Meditation.

Once we are properly relaxed, we can begin to concentrate on our object. But inevitably, we must overcome the many obstacles that arise in us.

-Gnostic Teachings


Weekly Practice (Meditation)

Prepare yourself to meditate by relaxing your three brains in the manner previously described.

Vocalize the vowel O for five to ten minutes, while visualizing a warm flame in your heart. Make the images real; enjoy the visualization, but stay focused on your heart and the sound.

Now vocalize the vowel I ("e" as in tree) while imagining a gathering of energy in your forehead, between your eyebrows. Do this for five to ten minutes.

Now imagine an apple. Fix your concentration upon your image and stay focused. Do not wander. Imagine all of the details of the apple: the color, the texture, the grain, the shape, turn it around, move it if you want, but do not allow yourself to wander to anything else. Stay focused on this visualization for about ten minutes. Notice that your mind will want to interfere, to change the apple, to make it better, or the mind will bring other elements to distract you.

Be consistent. Do this practice every day for at least one week.


Weekly Practice (Meditation)

For this practice, you will need a plant or tree that you can easily observe from your place of Meditation.

Prepare yourself to meditate by relaxing your three brains in the manner previously described.

Vocalize the vowel O for five to ten minutes, while visualizing a warm flame in your heart. Make the images real; enjoy the visualization, but stay focused on your heart and the sound.

Now vocalize the vowel I ("e" as in tree) while imagining a gathering of energy in your forehead, between your eyebrows. Do this for five to ten minutes.

Now pray in whatever way you are comfortable. Pray for help, for assistance, for guidance, for strength.

Begin by observing the plant with complete attention. Concentrate yourself 100% upon the many details of the plant. Study it so that you can recall everything about it in your imagination. When you feel that you have arrived at a strong degree of concentration and relaxation, and have well-examined the plant, close your eyes. Now visualize the plant in your imagination. Do not allow the mind to rearrange the image, or interfere in any way. This requires subtlety of attention: the mind will try many ways to distract or divert your conscious efforts. Maintain the visualization of the plant for ten to fifteen minutes.

It can happen that with a proper balance of concentration and relaxation that you will begin to receive images of a new type: images that are not produced by the mind. This is what we need to learn: how to distinguish between images that are produced by the mind, and images that are received by the Consciousness.

Be consistent. Do this practice everyday for at least one week.

-Gnostic Teachings


Weekly Practice (Meditation)

  1. Relax the Three Brains.
  2. Vocalize the vowels I and O.
  3. Retrospect the day with conscious visualization. Review the events of your day as if you are watching a movie. When any distraction arises, concentrate on it. Follow the chain of distractions with conscious attention.


Abandoning conceptual thought: Intellectualizing the teachings will distract us and impede our practice.  Fantasy must cease in order for intuition to function.  Thus, daydreaming, conceptualizing, and any form of mechanical imagination must be stopped.

The prerequisites are critical for effective development of our practice.  Each one requires continual effort to observe ourselves.  Thus in synthesis, we can see that self-observation is the very foundation of developing concentration:


  1. Self-observation is how we discover the activities, thoughts and feelings that impede our concentration practice.
  2. Self-observation is an activity of directed attention, thus it is the very same activity that we are trying to develop in our concentration practice; the more we self-observe, the stronger our concentration becomes.

BLUE TIME OR REST THERAPEUTICS (Psychology and Self-Knowledge-Meditation)

On the mysterious threshold of the Temple of Delphi, there was a Greek maxim inscribed on living stone which read Nosce Te Ipsum, “Man, know thyself and thou shalt know the Universe and the Gods.” It is obvious that in the last instant, the study of oneself, serene reflection, concludes in the stillness and silence of the mind. When the mind is still and in silence, not only on a superficial, intellectual level, but also in each and all of the 49 subconscious departments, then comes the novel, the essence, the consciousness becomes unbottled and the awakening of the soul, ecstasy, and Samadhi come. The daily practice of meditation radically transforms us. People who do not work on the annihilation of the ‘I’ live like butterflies going from school to school and do not find their permanent center of gravity, they die as failures without having attained the inner Self- Realization of the Being. The awakening of consciousness is only possible through liberation and emancipation from mental dualism, from the battle of the antitheses, from intellectual waves. Any subconscious, infraconscious or unconscious struggle becomes an impediment to the liberation of the essence. Every antithetical battle, no matter how insignificant or unconscious it might be, indicates unknown obscure points in the atomic infernos of man. In order to achieve the absolute stillness and silence of the mind, it is indispensable to observe and to know those infrahuman aspects of oneself. It is only in the absence of the ‘I’ that it is possible to experience and live the Integral Revolution and the Revolution of the Dialectic. Blue Time or Rest Therapeutics has basic rules without which it would be impossible to emancipate ourselves from the mortifying shackles of the mind. These rules are:


  1. RELAXATION: It is indispensable to learn to relax the body for meditation; no muscle should remain in tension. It is urgent to provoke and graduate sleepiness at will. It is evident that the wise combination of sleepiness and meditation results in that which is called Illumination.
  1. RETROSPECTION: What are we looking for in retrospection? Due to the mechanical life that he lives in, the intellectual animal forgets himself and falls into fascination; he goes around with an asleep consciousness without remembering what he did at the moment of rising, without knowing the first thoughts of the day, his actions and the places he has been to. Retrospection has as objective the acquisition of awareness of one’s behavior or actions of the past. On carrying out the retrospection, we will not put any objections to the mind; we will recall memories of past actions, from the moment of beginning the retrospection to the moment of our lives that we desire. We should study each memory without becoming identified with it.
  1. SERENE REFLECTION: First we need to become fully aware of the mood that we are in, before any thought surges. Serenely observe our mind, pay full attention to any mental form which appears on the screen of the intellect. It is necessary to become sentries of our own mind during any agitated activity and to stop for an instant to observe it.
  1. PSYCHOANALYSIS: Investigate, inquire, find out the origin of each thought, memory, affection, emotion, sentiment, resentment, etc. as they surge in the mind. During psychoanalysis, one should examine, evaluate and inquire about the origin, cause, reason or fundamental motive of each thought, memory, image and association, as they surge from the bottom of the subconscious.
  1. MANTRALIZATION OR KOAN: The objectives of this phase are: a.) To mix the magical forces of mantrams or koans in our inner universe. b.) To awaken the consciousness.  c.) To accumulate Christie atoms of high voltage within. In this psychological work, the intellect should take upon itself a receptive, integral, unitotal, full, tranquil and profound state. One achieves the unitotal receptive state with the koans or phrases that decontrol the mind.
  1. SUPERLATIVE ANALYSIS: Consists of an introspective knowledge of oneself. During deep meditation, introversion is indispensable. In that state, one will work in the process of the comprehension of the ‘I’ or defect that one wants to disintegrate. The Gnostic student will concentrate himself on the psychological aggregate and will maintain it on the screen of the mind. Above all, it is indispensable to be sincere with oneself. Superlative analysis consists of two phases which are: a.) Self-explora1ion. To investigate, in the depth of our consciousness and in the 49 levels of the subconscious when it was that the defect first manifested itself in our lives, when it last manifested itself and in what moments it is that it has more strength to manifest itself. b.) Self-discovery: To investigate what the foods of the ‘I’ are. To fraction and divide the defect in various parts and to study each part to get to know the kind of ‘I’ it originates from and the kind of ‘I’ that originate from it.
  1. SELF-JUDGMENT: To seat the defect being studied on the defendant’s bench. To bring to judgment the damages it causes the consciousness and the benefits that the annihilation of the defect being judged, would bring into our life.
  1. PRAYER: One will ask the Divine Mother Kundalini, our inner and individual Mother, with much fervor. One will talk to her with frankness and introverting all the defects and faults we have so that She, who is the only one capable of disintegrating the I’s will disintegrate them from their very root. It is pleasant and interesting to attend the meditation Halls - Gnostic Sanctuaries, every time one is able to do so. It is essential to always practice meditation with closed eyes so as to avoid external sensory perceptions.

-The Revolution of the Dialectic, Samael Aun Weor


Practice to Develop the Imagination /Clairvoyance (Meditation/Astral)

First: The syllables Ma Ma, Pa Pa, Ba Ba are the first syllables which we articulate in childhood. You can start the Initiation with these syllables. You must sing these syllables while assuming an innocent and infantile attitude. You can learn the intonation of these sacred syllables when listening to The Magic Flute of Mozart. Mozart placed these syllables in his marvelous opera. The disciple must fall asleep assuming an infantile attitude while remembering the first years of his childhood and then mentally singing the sacred syllables. The word Pa Pa should be vocalized intoning the first syllable Pa in a high voice, then the second syllable Pa will be uttered in a lower voice. These two syllables should be pronounced many times. You must do the same thing with the syllable Ma. Fall asleep while meditating on your childhood. Review with your imagination your whole childhood and mentally articulate the sacred syllables.

-Manual of Practical Magic, Samael Aun Weor


Practice for the Development of Intuition (Mediatation)

This faculty resides in the coronary Chakra; this chakra shines upon the Pineal Gland, which is the seat of the soul, the third eye. The Pineal gland is the center of the Intuitive Polyvoyance. Intuition manifests within the heart as hunches; yet, in the Pineal Gland those hunches become Intuitive Images.

It is urgent that our devotees practice the Powerful Mantra of Intuition; this mantra is the


prolong the Sound of the vowel “I” and of the consonant “N,” it sounds like a Bell. The student, submerged within a perfect meditation with his/her mind ‘in blank’, shall inundate him/herself in a great silence and then mentally vocalize the sacred mantram. One can chant this sacred mantram as many times as one wishes, after about ten minutes of vocalization the student must cease vocalizing the mantram and continue with the mind ‘in blank’ for an indefinite period of time. When the Great

Silence inundates us, then the Experience of the Great Reality comes to us.

- Esoteric Course of Kabbalah, Samael Aun Weor


Mantra Omnis Aom (Meditation)

There is a great mantra that we can use in Meditation, in order to assist us in that development, to help us to reach that experience. This mantra is OMNIS AUM. This mantra can be used at any time that we rest, we relax, we close our eyes, we forget all the vanities of the world, we turn our Consciousness inwardly, to look at our inner Consciousness, to dive within the Soul and we chant this sacred mantra over and over, diving into that as a doorway to our own Innermost. It is pronounced: “Ooommmmniiiissss Aaaaoooommmm.” Extend the vowels.

For this to be effective, you cannot be thinking, you cannot be worried about life, or fantasizing or daydreaming. You have to be conscious. You have to be consciously controlling your attention and relaxing.

Through that mantra, you can have the experience of facing the One who is within, your own inner Buddha, who is waiting for you, waiting to guide you, waiting to take you along that path to liberation.

-Gnostic Teachings


Mantra S-M-HON to Cure the Sicknesses of the Mental Body  (Psychology and Self-Knowledge-Meditation-Health)

The mental body is a material organism which has its anatomy and its occult ultra-physiology. The mantra in order to cure the sicknesses of the mental body is: S M HON.

The ‘S’ is pronounced as a piercing hissing sound, similar to the sound which the brakes of compressed air produce, like this: Ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss…

The ‘M’ is pronounced as when one imitates the bellow of the oxen: Mmmmmmmmmm

The “H’ is like a deep sigh. The syllable ‘ON’ is pronounced by elongating the sound of the ‘O’ and the ‘N’, like this: OoooooooooooooooNnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.

This mantra must be vocalized daily for one hour. The disciple must invoke daily the Archangel Raphael and Hermes Trismegistus, supplicating them to heal his mental body. When the sicknesses of the mental body crystallize in the physical brain, then madness is the outcome.

Meditation on the Universal Spirit of Life (Meditation)

Imagine the Universal Spirit of Life as an ocean without beaches, without shores. Think for a moment in a wave which emerges in order to get lost anew within its liquid element. Then, this diamantine wave would be ISHVARA.

BRAHMA the ocean of the Spirit, manifests itself as ISHVARA, who is the Master of Masters, the Governor of the universe. Within Him, that Omniscience (which in others only exists as a germ) becomes infinite.

He is the Master, even of the ancient Masters, since he is not ever limited by time. The word which manifests him is AUM.

-Esoteric Treatise of the Magic Runes, Samael Aun Weor


Meditation for the Expansion of Consciousness (Meditation)

Relax your whole body, for a couple of minutes watch your thoughts as they pass through your mind and calm yourself.

Once this is achieved, expand your Consciousness from the inside out. See how it expands upwards, downwards, sideways, always around your body. See the color of your shirt, your tie, your clothing and your shoes. Make sure that your body is relaxed and in a static position. Observe the orientation of your room, the furniture, paintings; identify all of them and then include the streets of the entire city where you live, identify them, feel the passing of the cars, and keep expanding your Consciousness more and more until it encompasses the entire earth. Afterwards, cover the limitless space where the suns and sidereal worlds move.

This exercise should last for an hour and be practiced for thirty consecutive days with Sundays as an exception.

-Aztec Christic Magic, Samael Aun Weor


Mantra OM MANI PADME HUM (Meditation)

Every man has his “Inner Being”, and every “Inner Being” has its father who engendered it; that is, our father who is in heaven.

Aun mani padme jum; this mantram is esoterically pronounced like this:

“Om masi padme yom”, (prolonging the sound of each letter, and syllabicating).

The meaning of this mantram is: “Oh my God in me!”

This mantram should be vocalized with the heart in profound meditation, adoring the “Inner Being”, rendering cult to the “Inner Being”, because the Inner Being is essentially the soul of our father incarnated in us, our divine individuality in which we need to absorb ourselves to enter that infinite and indescribable happiness of Nirvana, where neither suffering, tears, nor pain exist.

-Zodiacal Course, Samael Aun Weor


Mantra SOLU SIGI SIG to contact the Divine Mother (Meditation)

Hadit is the winged-serpent of Kundalini.

The esoteric name of Kundalini is SOLU-SIGI-SIG.

This is also the name of the central sun.

Each one of these letters should be vocalized in the following order.


Every letter must be vocalized, prolonging the sound of each letter, just as we have indicated.

It is important to prolong the sound of each vowel. The vowel “S” is like a sweet and affable hiss.

-Igneous Rose, Samael Aun Weor


Imagination with the Golden Cross (Meditation)

Let us remember that this plexus is the center of Telepathy. The disciple, seated in a comfortable chair, with his face towards the East, will imagine in that far away distance an immense Cross, radiant, of a beautiful golden color. Imagine that it emits blue and golden rays, which reach the Solar Plexus located in the region of the navel. The disciple will exert himself to feel the vibrations of those rays bathing the Plexus Chakra with light. At the same time, he will vocalize that vowel U (“u” pronounced as in “full”), which will be pronounced for a long time, in a semi-deep tone: UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU…

This exercise will last half an hour daily. Telepathy will be developed. When the Chakra of the Solar Plexus is developed, the Frontal Chakra is flooded with splendor and fire, and the Clairvoyant perceives all the sparkling shades of the person, and all the “thought forms” which float with their lit colors, in the Superior Worlds.

-Logos, Mantram, Theurgy, Samael Aun Weor


Exercise of Imagination with the Goddess Kakini- Powers of the Heart/ Intuition (Meditation)

The student should concentrate on his heart, imagining that is his heart there is thunder and lightning, floating clouds that get lost in the twilight driven by strong hurricanes. The gnostic will imagine many eagles flying between this infinite space inside, deep inside his heart. Imagine the profound forests of Nature, full of sunshine and life; the song of birds and the sweet and gentle sound of forest crickets. The disciple should fall asleep imagining all of this. Now imagine that in the forest there is a golden throne where the Goddess Kakini sits, a very divine woman. The disciple should fall asleep imagining all of this.

Practice for one hour daily, and if you practice for two or three or four hours a day it is even better. The practice can be done sitting in comfortable chair or lying down on the floor, or on the bed, with his legs and his right and left arm open in the form of a five-pointed star.

Sleep should be combined with meditation. Much patience is required. It is with infinite patience that these wonderful powers of the heart can be obtained.

It is better that the impatient, who want everything straight away, who do not know how to persevere their whole life should leave, because they are of no use. Powers are not obtained by playing around; everything costs. Nothing is given to us as a gift.

Mantra JEUSE VAUSE (Meditation)

Clairaudience is the occult hearing and is developed with the following mantras:



The sound should be prolonged in the above repeated sounds.

Submerged in profound meditation, the student will vocalize trying to lull himself to sleep.

Once he has managed to lull himself to sleep, he will exert himself to listen to the voice of his friends   who are far away: this is how the internal hearing awakens.

Mantra TOM DOM (Meditation)

Trying to imitate the sound that the breeze blowing thorough the foliage of trees.

The mantra TOM DOM, should be done as clearly as possible, in order to make the Heart Chakra vibrate.

Vocalize it in this way, imitating the sound of church bells:

Mantra AN (Meditation-Chakras)

Lungs’ Chakras and Remembering Past Lives

The vowel A makes the lung chakras vibrate. It is vocalized like this:AAAAAAAAAA

(“a” is pronounced like the “a” in the word “father”) Do you understand? If you want to add an N, even better, because you give the vowel a bell sound. In this case it will be vocalized like this: AAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNNNNN.

Meditation with Mantra PROWEOA (Meditation-Astral-Physical-Mental)

This exercise enables us to perceive what exists in the Internal Worlds, in any Plane: Physical, Astral, Mental, etc. When the student needs to urgently perceive something clairvoyantly, he will go into profound, internal mediation, while vocalizing this Mantra: PROWEOA

The vocalization will be done by prolonging the sound of each vowel.

Meditation on the Birth and Death of a Plant (Meditation-Astral)

The best exercise in order to attain Imaginative Knowledge is the following: 

While seated in front of a plant, we concentrate on it until we forget everything that is not related with it.

Then, by closing the eyes, we become drowsy and keep in our imagination the form, figure, structure, perfume and color of the plant.

The disciple must provoke drowsiness during these practices.

The disciple, while in drowsiness, will profoundly meditate on the internal constitution of the plant.

The disciple will imagine the living cells of the plant.

Each cell possesses protoplasm, membrane and nucleus. The protoplasm is a viscose, elastic, and transparent substance, similar to the egg white (album-inoid matter).

The disciple, while in drowsiness, must reflect upon the four fundamental elements in the protoplasm of the cell of the plant. These four elements are carbon, oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen.

The membrane is a marvelous substance without color, a substance within which the water becomes totally insoluble. This substance is the well-known cellulose.

The disciple, while concentrated, will imagine the nucleus of the cell as a small corpuscle where the great universal life palpitates. The nuclear filament is within the nucleus, as well as the nuclear juice and the nucleolus which are all covered by the nuclear membrane. The nucleoli are infinitesimal corpuscles filled with brightness and beauty. These are residual products of the incessant reactions of the plant organism. 

 The disciple, while well-concentrated, must imagine with complete logical precision all of those mineral substances and organic combinations that are harmoniously unfolding within the cellular protoplasm of the plant.

Let us think on the grains of starch and on the portentous chlorophyll, without which it is impossible to reach the perfect organic synthesis. The chlorophyll is presented in granulated form (chloro-leucite) as a very beautiful yellow color (xanthophyll) that becomes that precious green color of the plant while under the solar rays. 

Every plant is a perfect cellular community with incalculable perfections. The student must meditate on the perfection of the plant and on all of its scientific processes. He must be filled with a mystic attitude and enchanted with so much beauty. The mystic is in rapture when remembering all of the phenomena of nutrition, relation, and reproduction of each cell of the plant. 

Let us see the chalice of the flower. Here are its sexual organs; here is the pollen, the masculine reproductive element; here is the pistil or gynoecium, a very precious feminine organ with its ovary, stylus, and stigma.

The ovary is a sack full of marvelous ovums. The stamen can occupy different positions in relation with the pistil, for instance, insertion beneath the ovary, insertion around the ovary, or above it.

Fecundation is verified with the function of the feminine germs and masculine gametes. After exiting the anther, the pollen, the masculine gamete, reaches the ovary of the plant where the ovum, the feminine gamete, is waiting with anxiety. The seed is the precious and enchanted ovum that after being fecundated is transformed and grows. 

Now the student should remember the step on which he is meditating. A sprout will emerge as a delicate bud; imagine it growing slowly, until seeing it with your imagination spreading branches, leaves, and flowers. 

Remember that everything that is born must die. 

Imagine the plant’s process of dying. Its flowers wither; its leaves dry and the wind blows them away. Finally, only a few twigs remain. 

This process of birth and death is marvelous. By meditating on the whole process of the birth and death of a plant, by meditating on its marvelous life, if the concentration is perfect and a profound level of drowsiness is achieved, then the chakras of the Astral Body will spin, develop, and unfold.

Meditation must be done correctly. The mind must be exact. Logical thought and exact concept is needed for the purpose of developing the internal senses absolutely perfectly.

Every incoherence, every lack of logical and moral equilibrium obstructs and damages the evolution and progress of the chakras, disks, or lotus flowers of the Astral Body. The student needs a lot of patience, because any act of impatience takes him into failure. The student needs a lot of patience, willpower, tenacity, and absolutely conscious faith.

On any given day, within dreams or while in Meditation, a distant picture, a landscape of nature, a feature, etc. emerges. This is a sign that the student is progressing.The student elevates himself little by little into Imaginative Knowledge. The student is unveiling the veil of Isis little by little. 

On any given day, the plant on which he was meditating disappears. Then, a beautiful child who replaces the plant is seen. That child is the elemental of the plant, the soul of the plant. 

Later, during a dream, he awakens his consciousness, then he can say, “I am in my Astral Body.” The Consciousness awakens little by little. In this way, the moment in which the disciple will acquire continuous Consciousness arrives. 

When the student enjoys continuous consciousness, he no longer dreams; he can no longer dream, because his Consciousness is awakened. Then, even when the physical body is sleeping, he moves himself consciously in the superior worlds. 

Exact Meditation awakens the internal senses and performs a complete transformation of the internal bodies. Whosoever awakens Consciousness has reached Imaginative Knowledge. This one moves in the world of symbolic images. The symbols that the student saw while he was dreaming he now sees without dreaming, as before he was seeing them with a sleeping consciousness. Now he moves himself among them with an awakened Consciousness even when his physical body is profoundly asleep.

When the student reaches Imaginative Knowledge, he sees the symbols but he does not understand them. He comprehends that all of nature is a living scripture that he does not know. The student needs to elevate himself into Inspired Knowledge in order to interpret the sacred symbols of Great Nature.
