Lesson 194 - More Flashing Lights  (Audio)

From: Yogani
Date: Wed May 19, 2004 10:08am

New Visitors: It is recommended you read from the beginning of the archive, as previous lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "Why This Discussion?"


Q: OK... I've been doing the advanced yoga practices from the beginning. Tonight I just read this Q&A (
#179, "The star revisited").

In this Q&A, the writer said they see flashes of white light during their day. I was wondering if this is in fact related to doing the advanced yoga practices. I started noticing the flashes about 5 weeks ago. I didn't think too much of it and thought maybe it was the beginning of some eye problem. I had lasic surgery about 2 years ago. I kinda just ignored it and decided if it got worse I'd go see the doctor. 

Well it pretty much has stopped and then tonight when I read this Q&A, I read that person had the same experience. So now it's got me wondering if maybe it is related to the advanced yoga practices. Is it some flushing out of blockages that just happens to occur during the regular day? My natural instinct was to not worry about it. Just curious now, I guess. It's the human in me... : )

A: Yes, those kinds of symptoms of purification in (inner) vision can come with yoga practices. On the other hand, if something like that becomes a chronic difficulty for you, then it is good to get it checked out medically, especially if you have some history there. 

Keep in mind that your view of the world will naturally change over time to become more luminous, and there will be these sort of energy jerks of purification going on from time to time along the way. In the end, the flashing lights will give way to steady vision, and a luminous world will then seem to be perfectly normal. 

It sounds like you are moving right along with your practices. Bravo!

The guru is in you.
