Yogis initiated at Herculane share their experiences
by Monica Dascalu
At the beginning of May 2008, during the International Yoga Symposium in Herculane, Romania, it was given an exceptional initiation, which implies a method of induction of beneficial states of trance and this is a genuine world premiere.
Everyone practicing this method is granted free access to the parallel astral worlds and to a large array of surnatural phenomena. The large majority of the yogis have attended the special initiating program into the states of beneficial trance. Inner focus, attention, spiritual effervescence and enthusiasm brimming over in packed house – this is what has made the frame of this exceptional spiritual event. The success of the initiation into the beneficial states of romantic trance is backed by the countless evidence of the participants. We are attempting here a fascinating journey through the mysteries of the beneficial trance, based on the reference of the yogis who had attended the initiation at Herculane.
A highly efficient initiating method
The initiating method of beneficial trance induction is complex, but entirely natural; the gradual unfolding naturally makes it uncomplicated. Given the original feature of the initiation which secures access to new dimensions of the existence and reality, the theoretic understanding is highly important. Therefore the entire audience who wanted the initiation had to previously listen to the detailed theoretic introduction, which explains the phenomena that may occur together with the technique steps.
But for this theoretic training, it would be difficult to take good advantage of all opportunities granted by beneficial states of trance. “When I got this initiation I had quite a different understanding of the theoretic aspects, which I had the feeling I had understood quite well. The feeling that goes with the direct access to all these things is highly different than the mental understanding. Shouldn’t there be the thorough theoretic presentation, I couldn’t have fully beneficiated this initiation and but for the initiation, I would have hardly understood the theoretic presentation.”
“When I first realized this secret method during the initiation at Herculane, I had the feeling that it was quite complex and it would be utterly difficult for me to repeat it at home, on my own. To my own surprise, when I repeated it, I could joyfully see that the stages would naturally follow up in sequence and they would gradually prepare the state, so that I didn’t meet the slightest problem to do it on my own. Since the initiation at Heculane I have practiced this technique six times and I may say I already got fond of it.” (M.P)
Initiation, a key to success
In order to successfully practice such a technique, it is not enough to access information, but also to get effective initiation from a spiritual guide who he himself successfully practices this spiritual method. The initiation in the beneficial states of trance has been provided in the Symposium at Herculane by YOGA teacher Gregorian Bivolaru. But just like any other esoteric initiation, this is going to become fruitful and efficient only for those who will deepen it by means of the ounce of practice.
“A real spiritual guide is he who by the divine power that floods from God upon him gives us an impulse due to his own example. Therefore he opens to us the door to Paradise and helps us take the first steps beyond the ineffable door of spiritual knowledge. Each genuine initiation that a spiritual guide grants for us means a miraculous beginning that can urge us to a new and flat superiour level of spiritual evolution, which may incredibly transform our general perspective upon reality. It is always up to the aspirant who becomes initiated to evince perseverance and tenacity to keep the superiour level he had been urged to through the huge subtle beneficial energy and through the mysterious power of the example set by his own spiritual master. If the aspirant stays at the new stage he had been propelled to, this always shows that the initiation has been successful.”– Gregorian Bivolaru, Wise advice for those who embraced the way of the divine good
The secret doors of the astral heavens are open to thousands of people
“Since the very first stages of the technique I felt quite an easy access to the astral parallel realms. It seemed to be a whole miraculous kaleidoscope of realms and beauties spinning in front of me and all I had to do was open my inner being in order to meet them. It was some sort of fascinating gradual sliding to new spaces, realms, dimensions. These realities would seem utterly profuse to me, full of unutterable beauty.” (E.D.)
“I started to feel the first manifestations of the state of trance since the preliminaries, when I experienced some enhanced states that propelled me into some astral parallel worlds. I could perceive some images that featured the states I could feel deeper and deeper. That was quite a vivid and plain state, peculiar to my way of being. Then during the next stages, as Grieg was describing what was going on during such stages, I could even recognize his sheer description the way I started to see the emergence of some realms. For instance, there first appeared a view with a mountain lake and high mountains, and I was being led there by a state of particular peace, a need of depth, of purity. First there would emerge the state and then the astral projection in the subtle world corresponding to the state I lived. Then there also appeared other images, I was urged into other worlds relied to the emotions I could feel, such as love and which I could somehow retrieve in those worlds, enlivened in vivid extraordinary colours. All the shapes and moves in those realms exceeded the ordinary imagination, the way we normally try to figure out, not to say the way we live things in this physical world. Everything was amazing, in terms of movement, shape, way of unfolding. At a moment there was some sort of dance in a field where movements were greatly unexpected. I didn’t imagine those moves, they would unfold in those plans accordingly to what I was experiencing.” (D. F.)
Access to parallel worlds can take different ways
What is basically specific to the beneficial state of trance is the possibility to experience simultaneously the common state of consciousness and the existence into the astral universe. Gradually this astral experience becomes prevalent and the physical perception goes into subsidiary. The gradual translation into the astral universe is the essential mysterious aspect proper to the induction of a beneficial state of trance. In practicing the special method of induction of the beneficial states of trance, there always occur resonances to the elevated astral realms.
„I felt a strong activation of BRAHMARANDRA, AJNA CHAKRA and ANAHATA CHAKRA simultaneously and then I could feel a projection at the level of the subtle centre of power ANAHATA CHAKRA. This projection was a perception of my being extended into tactile, affective contact, as if I was gradually touching the subtle dimension. Together with this touching, I could feel a huge space opening; it felt as if I could feel it with my heart and I could see at the beginning a growing white, light then I noticed quite a complex structure, sort of net made up of enormous coloured hexagons and then lots of images started to unfold on this background. I don’t know exactly their meaning, but I could see they were quite old symbols; I had the feeling I was looking back into the humankind history. Then this projection into the subtle field remained like a frame of mind, which I became aware of as if looking with my eyes I couldn’t see anything but I had the feeling that I was anchored, extended in another dimension, which is more than the physical space.“ (F. C.)
„What I liked most about this technique was that when I came back to my senses I could see not with my physical eyes, but in subtle dimension that each of us was accompanied by his guardian angel and all these angels were so happy for us! Also I could feel the presence of so many angels and I could feel Grieg projected in this hall. In this subtle dimension where angels were manifesting, there was great joy. All those subtle beings were happy for what we got there. For a few bits of seconds I could hear their voices which were quite mild and beautiful.” (I. D.)
Miraculous transfiguration of perceptions
During the states of trance physical perceptions become subsidiary, but the consciousness contact to the physical dimension must not vanish for good. The fairy reality of the astral realms that is experienced by the subtle astral body also changes the physical perception. To a being experiencing beneficial states of trance who takes a walk in the nature, for instance, everything appears completely transformed as if by magic. The landscapes, things, beings, everything appears as imbued with some mysterious fascinating spell, casting a mysterious charming light. Everything seems original, amazing, mysterious and delicious.
“I went alone by the river of Cerna, on a special spot. I could feel there a state of quiet, of inner silence, of deep inner peace which made me feel myself again. I had previously experienced these states of silence, inner peace, but this time it was exceptional. Being in the open air I felt at a moment that I was fusing to nature, and my being was expanded to the extent that I couldn’t say the emergence of my being and nature. I laid down on my blanket, on the stones on the banks of he river, looking up to the sky. When I looked back to the forest, I could feel my own extension to the nature, and nature as part of me. That was quite an exceptional feeling… at a moment I could feel this dissolution of myself into the nature was absorbed in SAHASRARA and I became the witness of this feeling, quite a lucid witness. I was living a state of deep happiness, at the same time quiet and extraordinary delicious state.” (C. B.)
“During the fructification stage, I experienced extraordinary profuse emotions, which was quite unexpected. First of all when I went out of the hall I was nicely surprised at everything shining around in a special glow. Generally I felt that beyond what I could see in the physical world there existed plenty of worlds. Looking at each leave, each flower, I could feel that beyond it there laid huge richness and nature is highly alive. By such perspective upon nature I felt that I got richer myself by means of the beauty it shed. I even felt a wonderful state of enhancement of the state of SHAKTI through communion to nature; I felt that all this feminine beauty of nature also exists inside of me and all my feminine features are mirrored in nature.” (A. G.)
“As I was outdoors, lying down on the grass, looking up to the sky I noticed a great enhancement of the ability to see those phenomena proper to the etheric dimension. Those floating sparkles peculiar to the etheric dimension became quite clear to me.” (F. C.)
“There is something that fascinates me about the states of beneficial romantic trance that I experience, which is the magic of the moment lived in plenty. By simply looking at the dance of the leaves in the wind blowing, I can live states of ecstasy, feel that that moment has everything inside of it and the whole Universe is mirrored in that tree. By simply looking in the eyes of my lover I can feel his soul and recognize the archetypal energy which supports everything. The state of beneficial romantic trance urges me to deeply and intensely feel the presence of God in everything and my existence there becomes our lovemaking.”(C. C.)
For all those who have been initiated at Herculane, their experiences certainly mean a prospective beginning. Many of them are now determined to continue and explore the fantastic potential of this initiation. “From now on I am going to deliver myself more bravely in this whirl of love that gives sublime shadows to my life!” (F.F)
The most valuable gift granted by the secret initiation in the induction of the beneficial states of trance for the yogis is the possibility of deliberate self-induction of superior, extraordinary states of consciousness.
This enables us to discover in full delight both the miraculous richness of the soul and the beneficial infinite potentialities of our being. In this wide and mysterious universe where we deepen in ecstasy we rediscover the spell of love and the overwhelming beauty of romanticism. Besides, we may explore quite easily different hues, sides and aspects of love and lovemaking. Then we may have the intuition of the fact that the romanticism is going to become very “trendy” in the future and we will relish it without restraint.
The intoxicating charm of love
When we are in the state of romantic state, all our emotions, sensations, perceptions are much more intense and touching. Love will impress us much more thanks to our refined superior receptivity which is highly enhanced in the beneficial states of trance. Our open-heartedness makes us more responsive to the divine love and this will help us surrender without limitations to its embrace. Then the undivided connection between love and romanticism, between the state of infatuation and the elevated states of consciousness turns natural and goes without saying.
“Right after the initiation in the induction of the state of romantic trance I went uphill on the plateau for the yang spiral scheduled in the camp program at Herculane. Everything around me appeared now quite enlivened, new and magic. The most fascinating thing was, however, the way I could feel myself. I felt like a new born, all conditionings, prejudices, fears, had simply vanished away. I was feeling released. I was discovering a new endless space inside where I was expanding ceaselessly. I was focused in my heart and my heart was alive. Everything was simplified, going in a natural harmonious way. I was surprised at the purity I could discover inside and the happiness that was drifting me slightly above the earth.
That was such a full day! But the moments that stay most alive in my mind is the meditation after the spiral. The meditation topic was “The superior state of ecstatic trance that reveals the existence of the Divine Void of Blissfulness”. I was together with the one who was going to become my lover; he had been next to me in the spiral. I had a quite intense state of aspiration towards God, which I could feel was triggered by our encounter. I had the meditation in his arms. I felt embraced by the blissful void. I emerged completely in that state that revealed another dimension of existence. Then it started to rain. It rained like crazy, as if the heavens had broken. It was raining and each raindrop touching my body got me aware that I was living and I was not living in this world at the same time. In a few minutes I was soaked but this didn’t disturb not even for a second the profound state of meditation I was emerged in. That intense and great moment is something that I could hardly put into words. God was mysteriously revealing to me then and this great mystery of His presence can only be lived.”
Thanks to the beneficial state of trance we can live like gods
Naturally, the continence lovemaking with transfiguration acquires new exceptional features when both lovers are in romantic trance. We may say that sexual continence becomes three times more efficient, which means that both the states we experience and the transmutation and sublimation phenomena are three times more intense. Also, the effects that result from continence lovemaking are three times stronger. To make sure of these you must have courage and experience for yourselves. Here are the statements of people who had the courage to do it.
“The state of beneficial trance enabled the access to some extraordinary and unusual emotions which I had never imagined. It is enough for me to focus in a certain direction or on a certain aspect and I can already get access to some realms, emotions and even beings proper to those resonances. For instance, as I was making love to my lover in a pose that activates MANIPURA CHAKRA I started to see similar Tibetan representations. I saw myself surrounded by purple flames and I could literally feel that this caused some sublimation and alchemy processes, highly refined and intense, which not only implied sexual energies but also the psychic substratum. That was not only a vision in itself, but an effective, touchable emotion, where I could feel the blaze of fire by all senses, even with my ears. I was so deeply identified to some archetypal, female personifications that I was feeling like another being, exceptional, I even had another countenance and a different way to live lovemaking. I felt that I had almost completely translated in an astral paradise, proper to the Tibetan resonances. Long after, there prevailed a certain mystical resonance, particularly Tibetan, together with a state of nostalgia, of longing.” (C. D.)
Even when only one of the two lovers is in a state of romantic trance, the differences are obvious to both of them. “I was making love to my girl-friend as she was in a state of romantic trance, I noticed she had a completely different way to manifest and her states were completely different then the way she had been making love before. She was so fascinating then, so spontaneous, loving, and mysterious that I was completely fascinated and I felt that I was falling again in love for her, with that intensity of feeling that existed in the beginning of our relationship.” (I. U.)
The state of trance helps overcoming the blockages
For people who still face issues and blockages, the secret technique of gradual induction of the beneficial states of trance will prove to be a miraculous and valuable tool in this respect. All conditionings, limitations, frustrations, stresses, are so attenuated during the beneficial states of trance that it is very easy to go beyond and experience a natural, free and uninhibited condition. Moreover, during the states of trance we can induce ourselves new beneficial habits and the positive effects can be very easily preserved when we come out of the state of trance. It all depends on our options and intentions.
“The state of beneficial romantic trance helped me to remove in a miraculous way a series of inhibitions and hindrances in affective and erotic levels. I discovered unimagined resources and resorts inside, which make me manifest in a spontaneous, consonant way, as I always wanted to be. The most important thing was that I felt the enthusiasm and openness to plenary manifest without limitations my love and sexual attraction.” (E. D.)
“Since the preparing stages of the secret initiating technique in the induction of the states of beneficial trance, I experienced a profound state which granted a conspicuous state of harmony that delighted and fascinated me. Against the background of this state of harmony I had the feeling that I discovered all the fantastic potentialities of my body in a new, amazing way. For instance, the fact that my body enabled in a certain way my access to states of ecstasy through lovemaking appeared as a wonderful, mysterious and amazing thing to me. The certitude of this possibility and the wonderful promise of such ecstasy made me remain all along the state of trance in a delicious state with a deeply erotic feature. Thanks to its conspicuous affective aspect, this state was extremely elevated and delicious. The amazing thing to me was the intuition of the fact that this extraordinary state was mainly possible through removal of some tensions and inner blocks which partially occurred through profound relaxation but also through resonance to certain energies proper to the astral realms.” (A. R.)
“It was highly significant for me that after performing this extraordinary technique, I started to admit openly to myself that I am in great need of love. This may seem ordinary to some people, but to me this was quite an important opening. Not only am I in need of love but I also want to be loved and appreciated, things that I couldn’t even think of, before.” (S. P.)
The fascination of romantic love in another dimension
In love, nobody can ever have enough. Lovers never get bored with the one they love, with love or with their love emotions. But even when we are deeply in love, it is worth to dare for new feelings, sensations and perspectives. In this respect the state of romantic trance will bring richer love relationships, even if they are already happy and satisfying. For those who meet problems or are going through a time of dullness in their love relationships, the states of romantic trance can restore the charm and the fascination of love and can help the two lovers rediscover each other in a new and magic light.
„With the first exemplification of the state of romantic trance, at Herculane, I experienced such unusual feelings that I certainly know they are inspired by some beings that literally lived in romantic times and it cannot be all my imagination. It was quite unusual that these astral projections I had made me perceive the lifestyle of men that had lived exemplary romantic lives (who lived in those romantic times).
That was quite surprising and delicious to me, as a woman. I was strolling in the open air, contemplating nature in a detached approach and I wasn’t focused on it, but rather on my general state as I started to feel fascinated with the state of feminity and with women generally. I was literally hoping with a lover’s effervescence that somewhere in nature, among trees, in some drops, there laid the beloved woman, that I frantically aspire to contemplate and adore.
That identification to a certain male person living in romantic times was enhanced and became obvious. I was experiencing then a state of fascination and adoration for women and for the ecstatic potential of a relationship of romantic love, even platonic. Wherever I looked around, I had the feeling that there is such a sensual and loving woman who by her simple existence grants the infinite ecstasy to me. Moreover, I realized that my lover was quite romantic, indeed and those feeling must have been inspired by his way of feeling, which I couldn’t really appreciate before as I couldn’t even imagine at all.” (A. N.)
Released from the ordinary daily life
In our daily life, the beneficial states of trance may represent a buoy-life that helps us evade common, daily trifles, the pettiness and the small concerns or even the “important issues” we face. Do not hesitate to call for the states of beneficial trance as for a door out and a way to release from the daily dullness and the manipulating duties that invade your life.
“When I came back from Herculane I was immediately tied up with everyday issues. The idea to practice the special method of induction of the beneficial states of trance came hard to me as I thought that I was so busy and that would upset my entire schedule and I might not catch up with it after that. I put myself together to perform this technique as I became very tired and weary and I felt like evading the ordinary concerns and frames of mind. I was highly impressed at the state of liberty that this state of trance granted. The sudden modification of perspective as I lifted above the daily problems helped me realise that I have much a wider range of options than I had thought. Naturally I realised that both the couple relationship and the spiritual practice are much more important than the other activities and that ordinarily I was living some daily hallucination. The fact that I know now that I dispose of a simple method and every moment I am just two hours away (as it takes for the preliminaries) from the state of freedom and happiness that the beneficial state of trance can grant, this makes much more confident and detached.” (R. B.)
Transfiguration of the beloved one
In the magic light of the astral resonances stirred by the states of trance, the beloved ones appear completely transfigured. The magic of transfiguration will fully operate on our lives and relationships and will enrich them with new, wonderful shades.
”I was making love with my girl-friend, as we both were in a state of romantic trance, I noticed a great richness of lovemaking, but the most of it was the state of mutual transfiguration. My girl-friend is very beautiful, sensual, feminine and delicate but then she seemed thousand times more beautiful and sensual. I could feel that by her agency I could reach all heavens. Then, I could also feel a transfigurating attitude from her also, which made me feel like a god, extremely powerful, able to offer her the entire sexual ecstasy that she fully deserves, for sure. I could feel positively that this wonderful transfiguration for each other was due to the elevated resonances induced by the state of romantic trance. The contribution of the state of trance is unutterable, but all I can say is that all extraordinary tantric achievements (the glorious androgynous state, the experience of the multiple orgasm states, etc.) seemed easily possible then, thanks to the frantic love and to perfect sexual continence.” (D. T.)
“I was contemplating the face of my lover that I know so well as since always and that is so dear to me… then I felt an urge to touch his soul, to move him by a simple glance, which seemed to become all of a sudden the most stirring and erotic way of manifestation. Beyond the familiar features, I could perceive an amazing richness of new, unknown things. There was an extraordinary force, but also a lot of inner warmth. I felt that I learn again to look at him, as I considered him from that state of romantic trance I also learned again how to appreciate him and love him. Each detail on his face appeared full of meaning as an expression of a wonderful feature of his personality or of certain events that marked him and transformed him into the wonderful man he is now. I realized that this way of relating to him in beauty and romanticism transformed my soul and provided vital nourishment for his soul.” (M. M.)
