From time to time we stop to admire people who are strong personalities and seem to live with absolute clarity. They are clear about what they want, experts in their field, have great self-discipline and, above all, seem to be a magnet for many followers. And some of them seem extremely spiritual too.
There is a path to this kind of self-control in our lives and it is achievable.
In our spiritual subtle energy system made up of chakras and energy channels, a circular region in the abdominal cavity is known as the void region. Usually everyone knows and speaks about the seven chakras, but the void region is an integral part of the subtle energy system and is just as important as any chakra.
The name "void" represents the ocean of illusion or unenlightened consciousness (void) within us. In reality, our attention is still not enlightened until we receive our Kundalini energy awakening, realizing our inner spiritual selves in the process. This means that although we have access to our physical, cognitive and emotional abilities, our spiritual system is not yet active and we cannot experience it either.
In your first session, during the self-realization process of Sahaja, the emptiness is traversed by the ascending Kundalini energy, which is a great leap or transition to spiritual awakening and enlightened awareness. It's almost like we've turned a corner and taken a significant next step in our evolution by crossing that void or void region. The void region is also seen as a bridge between the unenlightened and the enlightened state that must be crossed in order to get into the latter.
After that, the void region, together with the chakras of Nabhi and Swadisthan, form an integrated spiritual energy group that determines the course of our evolution – from our creation to our last spiritual journey.
Advantages of a strong void region
Out of the void we receive the power to become self-masters and ultimately develop into gurus or teachers who can give guidance and enlightenment to others. We become self-regulating, independent, self-disciplined and self-sufficient. The void region enables us to take control of our thoughts, feelings and behaviors and to ascend to ever greater heights of spiritual evolution. We become self-regulating, independent, disciplined and self-sufficient. Knowledge of the ultimate – spirituality, the divine and our place in the universe – becomes intuitively accessible to us. Over time, we develop a kind of gravitas that forces others to seek our advice.
The void allows us to develop an unshakable sense of ourselves or the spirit, even when the people and events around us are in flux. Our character and temperament become more internal instead of being dominated by cultural or social pressures or the opinions or interventions of others. We are not clinging to the collective fears, beliefs and laws of the masses. We live by our own standards and self-expectations rather than obsessing over other people's approval of our actions. We learn to trust our judgment, experiences, and personal standards, and we are not afraid to stand up for our principles. And we take responsibility for our continuous growth and further development.
Since we now have an internal control point, we become self-regulating and thus ultimately self-determined. Self-determined people know how to capitalize on their self-awareness. Emotional self-regulation includes self-monitoring (awareness of our actions) and accurate self-assessment (assessing the acceptance of our actions). Self-regulation includes the key characteristic of discipline. We have the ability to rule in destructive impulses, visualize the consequences, and delay instant gratification in order to achieve our more important long-term spiritual goals.
By feeding the void area, we improve our perspective finding skills. We can develop a persistent ability to assimilate and examine all possible viewpoints, which will help us develop more sophisticated perspectives, make smarter decisions, and pass that expert knowledge on to others. By taking a perspective, we can answer important questions about the meaning and purpose of life. Good perspective-taking skills are a sign of emotional maturity and self-regulatory skills. We can develop proportionate, accurate perspectives of people and situations because we can use objective arguments to weigh evidence fairly, rather than jumping to conclusions or just accepting the popular view.
Despite our guru skills, we maintain our humility. We are not trying to improve our own image in the eyes of others. We let our services speak for themselves and do not see ourselves as “special” than us.
How to identify and correct problems with your void region
If you lack confidence, self-discipline, and self-control, it is a sign that your emptiness needs some attention. More serious problems can include relying on alcohol or becoming a victim or having the urge to follow the teachings of almost any guru who claims to give spiritual knowledge. If you are a strong guru in your own right, you can see through the fake gurus who have half-baked and insufficient knowledge or are just there to take your money.
The people with weak void regions, on the other hand, continue to crave almost anyone who offers seemingly great advice that is spiritually or emotionally engaging, or that promises a cure for all of their problems. They will keep looking for support and looking for something to lean on without realizing that this power of self-reliance and right action resides in them and in this void region.
Indeed, those with the strongest void region are the leaders and true gurus; those without are those who almost always follow or are overly submissive.
The practice of Sahaja meditation not only helps you to take this crucial step to cross this bridge of the void region, but also strengthens this region and gives you responsibility for yourself and your spiritual self-improvement. Regular meditation, especially collective meditation (no, collective meditation is not a dependency that will cause you to lose your confidence!), Is critical to building the essence of self-control and becoming a guru.
