“The person who practices the high Tantric learning becomes capable of perceiving all subtle vibrations, of directing them and make them ascend through the central channel, the Great Axe of the Subtle Body. When the four signs will appear (a strong light in front of the eyes, smoke, trembling, and cold, radiant light, like that of a lamp) then that person is free.”

After the simplest meditation on Subtle Centres, the practitioner has to perform techniques leading to the awakening of the fundamental energy, Kundalini (contraction of anal sphincters, mental repetition of the seed-sound “hum”, retaining of breath and erotic visualisations).
Further on, visualize the image of Brahma appearing from the lotus of the navel, resplendent and radiant, surrounded by Kundalini’s radiation. Visualize Brahma’s appearance spreading light all around and identify yourself with it.
Then, focus Kundalini in the area of the heart centre. Imagine her erotic energy penetrating this lotus and creating Vishnu (the Master of the seas, emotions, and blood flow in the body). Once more identify yourself with the appearance of Vishnu, the keeper.
Further more direct the Kundalini up to the crown lotus, reaching the pure domain of Shiva, the Transcendent. Hold your breath. If you practice this type of meditation while making love, you avoid ejaculation discharge. Try to become one with the blissful union between Kundalini Shakti and the male principle Shiva.
Some late Tantras give complex descriptions of the chakras by using sounds, colours, gods, seed-sounds, numbers of petals, psychological elements and qualities that from a synthesis of the connection between the inner and outer aspects of a human being.
The system of the Subtle Body and chakras are steps to the ultimate state of Freedom, it is best to follow them and take into account the basic structure.
Esoteric learning state that the true desire for spiritual evolution will necessarily meet with conscious action in order to develop the Subtle Body. Though the basic structure and energies exist in each and every one of us, they must be awakened, focused and directed in a conscious manner.
Body, mind, and emotions will be directed in a conscious flow of energy evoking the Subtle Body, which serves as a source of power, intelligence and overcoming the limits of the physical universe. This is one of the most important secrets of the Tantric tradition.
The famous secret treatise the Shiva Samhita introduces us to an impressive meditation technique on the awakening of Kundalini and of the Subtle Body.
Practice: “Focus your mind on the chakra of the sacral area and contract the anus while holding the breath. Meditate on the God of Love (Kama), who dwells in this chakra. Visualize Kundalini waking up as a shining, subtle flame, whose nature is the divine intelligence itself. Picture in your mind the sexual union between the God of Love and Kundalini in the form of a flame, which makes the sexual energy enter the central nadi (Sushumna), successively penetrating the Chakras on its way up. Also picture the subtle red and white channels, on the right and on the left sides of Sushumna, emitting a enchanting light pink in colour, which feeds and harmonizes the entire being.”
Tantric texts also refer to a chakra situated on top of the head. It is poetically described as the Lotus with a Thousand Petals, which Shiva Samhita describes as being “beyond the microcosm of the body”.
All great spiritual masters are perceived as having total control over the huge energy of this chakra. Different traditions have come up with various types of meditation techniques on this supreme chakra, yet all agree with the fact that, the practitioner who focuses on this chakra comes in contact with the source and the cause of Creation.
By awakening the natural inner powers, through different Tantric techniques, you realize in fact the harmony between the psychic and the cosmos. People practice certain Tantric meditation techniques for thousands of years.
Nowadays, more and more people become familiar to these and prove their extraordinary efficiency. Understanding the subtle body is an extremely important aspect for those who want to explore their psychic.
Particularly Tantric couples should explore the psychic more than the physical aspects during intercourse. Lovemaking offers numerous possibilities in discovering new things about another person. It is practically the only act that can give life.
Consequently, sexual love has profound mystical valences. If a couple can learn how to use sexual power in a creative manner, other than procrastinating, they will gradually discover, intuitively, the mysteries beyond this world.
The Subtle Body is the vehicle helping the practitioner to go freely through this life to the future one and to enjoy the delights of the spirit.
