"Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things." - Philippians 4:8
The meditation of the Secret or Inner smile is an age old practice that has powerful effects on the experiences had during the process. The way it is taught through Tantric circles is a little different than the way it is taught via other sources (Mantak Chia for example). What we should consider is that if A=B then B=A. What I mean by this is that emotional/psychological states are influenced by the levels of essence and vitality in the body, with certain states tied to specific organs and glands. If this is true then the practice of adopting powerfully positive emotional/psychological states will also have an effect on the levels of essence and vitality in the body. This pervades throughout the entire body due to the ability to rewrite information coded within the DNA strains found within cells and results in a much greater sense of well-being and inner harmony.
The practice begins, like most other meditative practices, with the feeling of deep relaxation. Here the practice of "relaxation response", used by many hypnotherapists can be very useful. It is important to understand that eventually, we need to be able to enter a state of sleep paralysis if we are to approach the inner sanctum. This makes the body itself the temple (and Alchemical Laboratory) in which we work. In this temple, we have the outer temple/lower cauldron, the inner temple/middle cauldron and the Holy of Holies/upper hidden cauldron (original cavity).
Now that we have entered the Temple/Laboratory, we begin to fill it with positive intent. The key here is not to think about the feelings, but to actually feel them. After-all, knowing about happiness is nowhere near the same as actually being happy ;) I'm sure we all understand this.
throughout your body and into your head. Fill your entire body with this feeling. Walk through and light every corner of your inner temple with this energy as you breathe deeply. Once your entire body is full of this feeling, allow it to fill with the pool of saliva in your mouth, swirl it around and swallow it down. Follow the energy to the lower cauldron where it mixes with the previous feeling of confidence, making a new sensation that is a combination of confidence and ecstasy. Breathe this new ball of light/energy through your orbit. Inhaling the powerful feeling up the spine, and exhaling it down the front.
down where it mixes with the previous feelings. This merges the 4 intents into one. Take this new intent and breathe it through the orbit for a few cycles.
This method will help to rewrite the information within your cells, and within your psyche to carry powerfully positive states. In time this will become a sort of "white noise" that exists behind all other meditations, and even your daily interactions will have to take place on the psychological/energetic landscape of your Inner/Secret Smile.
This practice gets more powerful over time. Enjoy it, Love it, Share it with EVERYONE!
