the only truth I know is my own experience

Russian born, living working and prospering in Austria.

Happily married, work as Executive Search Consultant.

I have been practicing Sahaja Meditaion for over 20 years now, it is the meditation in which I found the fulfillment of my dreams about personal and collective evolution. 

My love for beauty of Spirit manifests through my hobbies – photography and blogging.

  1. Hi Axinia,

    You have a very lovely site here. I share many of your feelings towards life….although not quite in such a beautiful and poetic manner.

    I have two sites, I only just began a few weeks ago, but I’m starting to get the hang of of. I am going to put your link onto both of my blogrolls, if that is o.k. with you. I may even want to borrow a post or two of yours and “re-print” on one of my sites sometime. Giving you full credit of course. Let me know if that is o.k. — and thank you for sharing your site with me.




  2. axinia Says:

    Hi, Catherine,

    Happy you liked it. Sure, you can use my blog for any purpose – in fact, I have never understood the “copy right thing”, as if I create something, I want to share – no matter under which name, what metters is that people can enjoy and use it 😉

    I like your concept of “women4hope” – in that case you might be interested in my another blog


    which is dedicated to womanhood (seems to be even more suitable that 1000petals).

    I will be happy to link to you also, if you dont mind!

  3. Thanks, and if I do use something of yours I will give you full credit on my site, and also let you know what I have used.

    I will check out both of your sites. Thanks.

  4. Hi Axinia,
    Your site is really lovely , you are doing a great job and handling more sites .. Great work girl

  6. John Peirson Says:

    Dear Axinia,

    Here is a petal from Carl Jung:

    “Learn your theories as well as you can,
    but put them aside when you touch
    the miracle of a living soul.”

    Sat Chit Anand to you,

  7. axinia Says:

    Thank you, John, I am fond of Jung as well – such a great soul he was!

  8. Nita Says:

    Axinia, I love this blog. I have been meaning to come here for some time, but with one thing of the other its not happened. I finally did, and good thing I did because I realised that I was missing something. You are on my blogroll now. 🙂

  9. axinia Says:

    Thank you, Nita! It is an honor for me to be on YOUR blogroll!!

  10. di0genes Says:

    Face is the index of a personality, they say. This face sure points towards a nice personality out there.

  11. axinia Says:

    Thank you, Diogenes, for this compliment 🙂
    On my “Shaktipower” blog there is an interesting discussion about facial beauty reflecting the inner nature:

  12. Grazilia Says:

    You have some really lovely pictures out here…Have you clicked them yourself?

  13. axinia Says:

    Thank you, Grazillia,
    I love beautiful pictures 🙂
    Under each picture you can see a link to the photographer, and some of these pictures are really taken by me! – I developed a sort of a passion for that and soon hope to use only my own shots..It is so exiting to capture beautiy in a camera!

  14. sunshineforlife Says:

    Hi Axinia, come across your page thru tagged topics. it’s a wonderful blog am sure by jst reading the first page. so full of inspirational thoughts. i’ve visited your children land blog, too. would love to add you to my blogroll if you don’t mind. am still abit new to blogging and i love the experience of reading other’s ppols thoughts. they teach me something daily. here’s mine to check if you have time:


  15. axinia Says:

    thank you, sunshineforlife! (what a lovely name!)

    I am pleased you l – like it, and hope you can take something useful for your way of blogging, I also learned a lot from some of my blogging friends.

    I want to have a closer look at your blog and leave my comments.
    Good luck on the way! 🙂

  16. sunshineforlife Says:

    you are very much welcome to drop by anytime.
    I pick that name “sunshine for life” because i want to always live that happy disposition inspite how gloomy life could be at times. Talking or writing to reach out is one way to make me smile — it makes me forget my cares. >> have a nice day. 🙂

  17. Sunshine Says:

    hi, i tagged you on “7 things about me”. i find this as a way of having fun with blogging. Hope you will enjoy. thanks.

  18. Shahrzad Says:

    You do very good job honey. Your fotos and blogs are beautiful. Why you dont mix all of them in one blog? It works more.. 🙂
    Thank you..
    Stay hopeful, faithful and beautiful..

  19. live7n Says:

    I love this blog. Women are power. this power join people in love, respect and enhence the moral of living.
    this a beautiful presentation of art of an indan living.

  20. axinia Says:

    Live7n, thanks for your high appreciation! I love indian style and philosophy (though i believe every culture has its own beauty), I hope only Indians will keep it up and do not loose under the western inflence…

  21. Live7n Says:

    I am very pleased as you reply. and inspired also. 1000petals inspired Live7n for a indian living with a bright reflection of the western inflence without forgetting the origin

  22. Shirley Says:

    Beautiful blog. I’ve enjoyed being here this evening.

    Be blessed always.

    Shirley Buxton

  23. axinia Says:

    Thank you, Shirley, it is just the love, nothing else 🙂 The love creates that beauty…

  24. Live7n Says:

    Not only flowers but also wild life are also “wonderful, colorful “.

  25. axinia Says:

    You are right! Unfortunately I do not have much possibility to take fotos of wild life in perfectly styled Austria 🙂

  26. hi, axinia

    nice to know you and happy to see your blog…

    best wishes
    sakib al mahmud

  27. Axinia, I couldnt help but notice your “vedanta philosophy”. And in answer to your “I hope only Indians will keep it up and do not loose under the western inflence…”, I as an Indian feel that it is already so..

    At the moment there are a few good people out there, but the rest of us are buried in corporate greed.. Progress is not bad, but cloned progress without an individual stamp is a little sad.

    Thats how mighty nations (cultural not physical) collapse I guess.. As an expatriate, i finally know how many things I took for granted while I was in India.

    I love your blog, and am adding you to my blogroll..

  28. axinia Says:

    hallo, Lakshmi and welcome! I am glad you apreeciate my site – you have a lovely and very well done one two.
    It is great to see that you know what I mean and I hope we will become good friends 🙂

  29. Dear Axinia
    Beautiful Blog. I just stated with you, so I dont have much comments. Let me get back to you later. wish you and all a very HEALTHY & GOOD NEWYEAR


  30. bibomedia Says:

    Have a nice day !

  31. Nita Says:

    Axinia, I have tagged you for a meme but the pingback hasn’t appeared here. When you come back from Italy you can have a look at it.

  32. […] alphabetical order, I am tagging Aikaterine, Amit, Axinia, Brian, Gabriel, Jo, Laksh, Paul, Prerna, Purnima and […]

  33. SanityFound Says:

    Wow a woman after my own heart! Thanks for your comment on my blog, I get the feeling I am going to enjoy exploring your blog! 😀

  34. […] aber was ich nicht gewusst habe war, dass Russland seine eigenen sieben Wunder hat! Meine Freundin Axinia hat einen sehr schönen Artikel zu diesem Thema auf ihrem Blog […]

  35. Sonny Says:

    This is an interesting site. I’ve spent a while reading. Thanks for the food for thought.


  36. NirakAtak Says:

    A great blogg here, ; )
    so I’ have to come once more,
    to see more about the “Cosmic Work of Virgin and Leon”

  37. Mavin Says:


    Have been reading your comments on Nita’a blog for some time.

    Came across to 1000 petals only today (entirely my loss – should have doneit earlier).

    A wonderful blog. Please keep creating those lovely blogs and accept my compliments
    fellow traveller on this planet.

    God bless..

  38. axinia Says:

    Dear Mavin,

    thank you so much for your kind appreciation!
    I am glad to be aboe to share the beauty and delight about the exsitence on this Earth…keep visiting!

  39. Peter Says:

    Glad to see this beautiful, rounded, flexible width theme. 🙂

  40. axinia Says:

    thanks, Peter –
    this one is softer but still not what would totally suit the concept of my blog…

    I came back to it, untill WordPress wll suggest something really suitable for me- may be have to give a bandan 🙂

  41. Peter Says:

    Register for free here and enjoy thousand of templates.

    Is little bit advanced but has a lot of things.

  42. axinia Says:

    thank you Peter, I am aware of that.
    But that requres some skills which i dont have…lets see, many be later.

  43. Peter Says:

    It is not difficult.
    Just register and install the platform that you like.
    Here are my first steps with JOOMLA.

    I just need a little time to create our Bulgarian “piece of art” Sahaja yoga magazine.

  44. axinia Says:

    intresting…the only thing which is always my concern – i would not like to loose the great WordPress community!

  45. Peter Says:

    If you would like beauty and some flash you can try with Blogger.
    These are some of my experiments with Blogger.

    At Blogger you can upload various themes from internet.

  46. vivek mittal Says:


    i reached here through link from nita’s blog
    It’s very beautiful title for your blog, and i liked the part Indian connection behind it

  47. axinia Says:

    many thanks, vivek mittal! I know you from your comments on Nita`s blog 🙂 You appreciation is very pleasing…

  48. wortman Says:

  49. axinia Says:

    danke, mein Lieber 🙂

  50. wortman Says:

    wunderbares bild, wundervolle frau. muss ja auch mal gesagt werden.
    so, und nu hör ich wieder auf mit der süssholzraspelei 🙂 sonst denkt nachher noch jemand, der olle wortman baggert *lach*

  51. NiRAk Says:

    @ Wortman
    Wer könnte bloß auf solche Gedanken kommen … tz, tz, tz 😉

    .. und natürlich auch liebe Grüße an axinia – ja, auch mir fällt auf das Deine pic’s sich immer wieder ändern. Ich finde es GUT

  52. wortman Says:

    @Nirak: Wer weiß das schon… außerdem möchte ich nicht in die Schwierigkeit kommen, meinen Blog in “Raspelman” umzubenennen 🙂

  53. axinia Says:

    das ist echt süß von euch beiden :)))

  54. Erwin Says:

    Hi Axinia ,
    It’s been a while now that I have been visiting your blogs , and just wanted to thank you for all these joyous reads and super photos . You are like a bright sun, on the internet , sister , ( solnechnaya sestra ) ,and today is a very grey day here in Spain ,it’s like english weather !! , and I just wanted you to know that you have been one of my main inspirations to start…,lets say ,attempting to write blogs : ) Normally most of my time and creative energy goes into my work ( you can see this at http://www.teflbarcelona.net , the little company I created for people to learn how to teach english : ) , and then I marvel at the way you guys just write in such a nice straightforward way , clear and bright ,simple ,honest …beautiful .
    Any way here are my attempts so far :


    Like Catherine , I wanted to ask you if I may put a link to your blogs and perhaps copy some photos or texts ,like that quote from Gandhi ?

  55. axinia Says:

    Hi, Erwin, thanks for sharing your kind words – I never knew you have been reading my blogs 🙂
    It is the highest sward for me to know that my humble blogging makes someone`s day brighter…thank you, dear!

    Sure, feel free to copy whatever you like from here, for nothing belongs to me and you probably know what I think of copyrighting 🙂
    I will visit your blogs and leave comments!

  56. Rashmi Says:

    HI Axinia,

    It was a delight going through your website, such interesting thoughts !

    Seeing such blogs – it definitely becomes an inspiration for alot of us to continue blogging and to know there are thousands of people out there who share similar views and aspirations.

    Keep up the good work and feel free to visit my blog and drop in any comments.

    peace always

  57. axinia Says:

    Thank you, Rashmi, It is my pleasure to share my joy with the readers!
    I will visit your blog and comment, sure. Welcome again and keep visiting 🙂

  58. seshdotcom Says:

    Hi axinia your weblog looks Superb.Write a Lot of this Kind..

  59. seshdotcom Says:

    Do you have any Objection.I need to discuss about some of the Posts you wrote.So how can we do that??–>Like say for example the Guru post you wrote and All those things when you find time just scroll through the other posts in my weblog on different mythologies..This weblog is superb

  60. axinia Says:

    sechdotcom, thank for your encouragement!

    I will surely check your blog, however i do not know what kind of things you are willing to discuss?

    My point is whatever i right here is personal experience based – any post, even if it is a guote, I have lived it otherwise I would not post it… Thus discussing experiences is not clear to me, because I think experiences can only be shared… OR what kind of discussion do you mean?

  61. Michael Tim Says:

    I love your site! 🙂

    Experiencing a slow PC recently? Fix it now!

  62. kaushal Says:

    Hi Axinia,

    Oh my lord!!!!!!!!
    i have not experienced such enthusiasm for a very long time. i think people like you make the world a better place to live and love.
    i m very new to the concept of blogs. its been only few days and by my very healthy luck i came across 1000 petals. such extraordinary thinking in such simpler form!!!!!!! amazing!!!
    i am definetly going to be one of the many regular visitors of your blog.
    i wish that you always keep energizing people like me…

    • axinia Says:

      Hi, Kaushal, somehow your commend landed in spam..
      Thanks a lot for your appraisal, I am more than happy to hear that my blogging inspires people and make them feel better.

      “such extraordinary thinking in such simpler form” – you say: it is may be because I see life as a simple thing. I may have a bit primitive view, but it makes me and my surroundings happy 🙂

  63. Hello Anixia,

    Your thoughts are neat and you seem to write with a lot of conviction. kudos!

    I have put you on my blogroll.

    Vaibhav (vaibhavtiwari.wordpress.com)

  64. axinia Says:

    thanks a lot, vaibhav! – I am glad you like my blog. Your notice is correct – every sentence I wirte is not only out of conviction but also out of my shere experience. So it is very authentic and that is important to me.

  65. Lotus Love Says:

    Awesome! More POWer to you Sister! ; ) I am new to blogging world and still learning the kinks or how to fully use it.
    I am intrigued and will check out your other blogs as well!
    Thank you for sharing, writing and posting with the world.

    Really enjoy your tagline: Open a New Petal Every Day!

    Keep It Delicious,

  66. Solveig Says:

    Мне нравится новый аватар больше старого! Оставь его, плиз! 🙂

  67. purple Says:

    Greetings. I stumbled onto your blog from a comment you left on another one and found much to explore, so I will revisit from time to time.

  68. Jayadev Says:

    Hello Axinia,

    You have a simple and direct style. It’s unaffected. I am sure that comes from inner peace and lack of any need to impress anyone.

    I have a regular blog too – which is angry, wicked and sometimes (at least I think so) funny too!


    Your blog makes me think.. maybe I will try writing in other styles too.

    Wishing you the best.

  69. Elena Solemo Says:

    Hi Axinia,

    What a nice photos have you made from Rome!

    I am a professional photographer but work now as a translator, tourleader and teacher.

    I am practicing Sahaja yoga since 1991 and think it was the best thing that happen to me together with the birth of my son Mario.

    Wishing you all the best from the bottom of my heart!

    Hello and thank you for info on Lithuanian language.
    Love your blog and everything about you
    Love, peace and blessings


  71. Hello!

    I’ve spent half an hour just digging through your blog. AMAZING work–You have such a gift in self-expression, I don’t even know where to begin. I wish you the best with your writing. Keep making your fans proud 🙂

    Rania Abuisnaineh

    • axinia Says:

      Thank you Rania, you are very much welcome!

      I never tought of self-expression here, really 🙂 My desire is to give, to show the beauty of life which I see every day…

  72. Samir Says:

    Hi Axinia,
    Spent quite a bit of time reading through your blog. Interesting thoughts. Actually i stumbled here while searching for Lithuania. Would like to learn more about Sahaja Yoga.


  73. Doll Says:

    You are a lovely woman: -)

  74. Pangea Says:

    Many blessings to you for your joyful photos, and for the poetry & sincerity of your thoughts. I “accidentally”” stumbled across this blog while looking for some inspiration. How strange it is to look for one’s highest self & find it mirrored in another’s poetry! May divine love be with you always…and much gratitude for the inspiration!

  75. simplyrohit21 Says:

    Hi Axinia,

    This is the first time I am subscribing to a wordpress blog and in fact it is your blog that has made me even register on wordpress. I was immediately struck by the content posted at your blog and decided to follow it.

    Your blog echos of the same truth, the same knowledge which I seek and have read in multiple text of Swami Vivekananda, Adi Shankaracharya and many other Spiritual Gurus.

    Though I am yet to go through a lot and lot of stuff posted here. You seem to be a prolific blogger.

    Further, I am really happy to know that someone from far away country is also practicing such ancient meditative techniques and is benefiting from them. It gives me great satisfaction to observe this.

    Love & Light,

    • axinia Says:

      thank you Rohit, I am very pleased to ge such a comment. Welcome to my blog and to the world of wordpress!!

      keep visiting and shre your ideas 🙂

  76. Henk Lutgerink Says:

    Hi Axinia

    I came onto your blog by chance

    Just want to comment on the 5 myths of Russian Women

    I absolutely agree with you!!
    1st: I met a Russian woman (from SPB) and I adore her tremendously.
    For me Russian women are soooo feminine and proud to be Russian, something, I think, European women forgot or lost (in Holland anyway)
    I respect and love her for her humor, intelligence and practicality.
    She is not a supermodel (her words), but such a sweet, caring and considerate person. I love her eyes and smile and we are very open to each other.
    We have a very good friendship and she took it upon herself to visit me in Holland.
    We talk a lot about authors, art, poems, but also about our personal life.
    About Russia?
    Yes, you have more freedom then we in Europe, but thats my personal opinion.
    If European/American men would listen they will find out that Russian women love old fashion values like…opening a door, helping with her coat, be a gentlemen all the time and above all HONESTY!!!

    I could write for hours in superlatives to describe a Russian woman, but I just wanted to let you know my encounter with a Russian woman

    I bookmarked your page and will pass it on to her as well

    Thank You

    Henk Lutgerink

  77. Niki Says:

    Hi Axinia,

    I am from Indonesia, also came onto your blog by chance (isn’t internet a great thing/human’s invention?).
    I have just read several of your article writings, and I’m really interested in subscribing to your blog, through my Gmail (email) inbox, but I’m kinda confused as how to do it..if you would be kind to show me on how to do it, I’d be really glad.

    Also, I have some several important questions (as well as a bit of my personal lifestory’s sharings), so I hope you wouldn’t mind if I ask for your email address so that I can email to you 🙂

    Hope to hear back from you

    keep writing & sharing your lights to the world!
    Warm regards from Indonesia,

  78. Dear Axiana,

    I recognize my own thoughts in many of what you write and find your blog very open hearted and inclusive.
    I hope my “strong mind” posts are a not an ” overly robust” contribution,
    but I guess each who experienced enlightenment is a natural paradigm shaker out of compassion.
    Bon courage!

  79. Sorry AXINIA, my dyslexia played up!

  80. Louisa Says:

    Hi Axinia,
    I love your blog! I would love to meet you one day..

  83. I have scanned through many of your posts, I find the wisdom and thoughts you have put into it to be really calming. Thank you very much for taking the time to share your knowledge, wisdom and experiences, scriptures can say a lot but nothing beats personal human experiences. Please shower us with more of your wisdom.

    It will take some time to read through all of your posts, but if I can discover many new things about the world and myself and contribute to the greater good, I will be glad to read through, slowly and surely. Please carry on you great and kind hearted work! 🙂

    • axinia Says:

      dear letthecolorsrumble, many thanks for your beauitiful comment! I don’t know about wisdom, but the impact of personal expeince may be relly strong,as you very well noticed.
      I wish you good luck in the blogging world (I gues you’ve just started a blog) and please feel free to comment on my other posts we well.

  84. Nishant Says:

    Hi Axinia,

    We criss-crossed through facebook. Then started arriving your blog posts in my mailbox to which I had mixed response meaning, even though I participated in some, more or less I thoght of them a timewaster. But just now I realised that your blog sites provide my mind the much needed outlet, to bare all, unabashedly.


  85. Nishant Says:

    then where did I go? :((

    It’s funny this time it shows me from Bangalore.

    Anyway, doesn’t matter or, may be nishant is omnipresent :))


  86. Nishant AGRAWAL Says:

    Hi Axinia,

    Could you please lead me to the post where they speak about immigrants in India being ill-treated?


  87. Nishant AGRAWAL Says:

    this is the post where an Indian contributor refers to Bangladeshis in India, followed by your short comment.

    If you still can’t find, leave it. Not so important.

    Hi, Axinia! I came across your blog a few weeks ago and couldn’t forget it. And here I am again. I love your sincere posts and homelike atmosphere. I included you address on my blogroll in order to return here for I’m interested in the same things as you. Thank you!

    Jai Shri Mataji…
    I think I had posted a comment here earlier but it doesn’t seem to show up…strange…
    Anyways…I have an article which is an inspiration I had in one of the Sahaj seminars. Please let me know if I could mail it to you and if appropriate you can post it on your site as I want as many Sahajis to read it…

    Please let me know…

  92. Larry Glover Says:

    Anaxia, I discovered your blog today through the post, I Am Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, and Atheist — All at Once. And then I stayed to follow a trail of beauty running throughout you blog. Your love of life is strong… as is the light coming through you. Thank you.

  93. Natalie Says:

    Hello Axinia, I’ve been looking for ideas to start my own blog, and for a long time I couldn’t decide what I should blog about — I am interested in so many things. Today my colleague suggested I blog about dogs. I thought, of course! I love dogs, I own dogs, I enjoy reading about dogs and can talk about them day and night. But what do I call my blog? How about whiskers, paws and tails (privet Matrosskin!)? That wasn’t the most original idea, but it doesn’t matter, because this is how I came upon this gem of a blog. I love your photography and the spirit of free thinking emanating from your posts. Not surprisingly, now I have a better idea of what I want to blog about. (Not to worry, I don’t mean to steal your ideas or content or infringe copyright!) I am simply inspired. Thank you.

    • axinia Says:

      I will be very pleased if you will “steal” my idea of a blog, finally it is not unique. Please get started and share the link to your blog with us. BLOGGING rocks! 🙂

  94. Rebecca Says:

    Hi, Axinia.

    I wonder if you can email me directly. I have a question to ask you.

    Many thanks,


  95. Axinia, my boyfriend Valentin (Romanian) and I (Polish/English background) love your writings. Thank you for sharing them with all of us! I would love to know if you ever accept guest writers on your blog. I have a few things I’d be interested in contributing as I continue on my own journey of discovering life. Is that at all a possibility?

    Thanks for your consideration!



  96. L.Mae Says:

    Hi Axinia,

    I came across your blog early last year and I have almost read every single post 😉
    You have a wonderful way of writing and expressing yourself which I believe helps others gain insight in their own life and helps in their own meditation (which can be something as simple as taking time to write thoughts down on paper). I particularly enjoy the posts in which there are survey questions as I always enjoy reading what others write (everyone will answer these questions differently) and I can use these questions in my personal life when I do my own sort of meditation. My other favorites are your posts that have to do with philosophy.

    I am fully Russian (I am not from Russia though) and from my research Russians/East Europeans seem to have more intuition than individuals from other countries. They are more in tuned with their surroundings, make more conscious decisions etc. (I see this in your blog and other Russian’s blogs) Based from what I read, I conclude that this is because of the lack of materialism and Hollywood in these locations but there is more, I am sure. My great-grandmother was a psychic and my mother and I both get premonitions, I do have a very spiritual/religious background from my ancestors in my family tree. I am very curious though because when I read things on “Russian character,” I read very deep writings on this. When I look up other countries’ characters, the writing seems to only reach the surface.

    If I could make a blog request 🙂 🙂 I would love to hear your intake on this topic! Why do Russians seem to have more intuition? Why do they seem to have deeper insight? It almost seems to me that Russians naturally have this “gift” but I do believe all people can have something similar if they desire this but it will take some work and dedication! I think some who are naturally intuitive can struggle with looking deeper, below the surface level.

    If you’d like, we can talk more about this through email 🙂

    Many thanks,

    I love Lord Budhah too. But a mistake, which he too realisd was there. There was no need for leaving his wife and son.
    The only question the great soul didnt have an answer for , was askd by Yashodhara , his wife. When budhah had gone to ask for ‘biksha’.
    She askd “Would i or Rahula, be a obstacle in your path? Couldnt you hav done the same with us, which you are possible to do sitting under bodhi tree ?”
    he had no answer.

    I am Dr, Jagadish Joshi from India, now retired from Government job. I do blogging in Gujarati on wordpress.com ( http://bestbonding.wordpress.com ). I have tried to understand soul, body, cosmic energy etc. since I was studying in college. Recently I read an experience of one blogger on Muladhar bhedan. He has written that he feel coldness in pelvic area then feels something scrawling upward. He saw Ganapati (Hindu God), bright light, also feel cold drops falling in pelvic area. I always expect, someone who has practiced Yoga, share his/her views with me with open mind.
    I believe that our body is dense form of energy, (like Ice, in vapour – water – ice system.).
    During Vipasana training, Shri Goenkaji, teaches that body at micro (sukshm sharira) level body is only ‘waves’. During Vipasana we have to concentrate our brain at such level that we can feel this ‘waves’ and feel that the ‘body’ changing every seconds.
    I also believe that our thoughts stay in Aura body. (Aura body is nothing but the dense vapour like energy and thoughts are still more in dense form) Shri Goenkaji teaches that we should train our brain in the manner that it can travel forcefully through the Aura body, so that thoughts are diffuse – relevant to our ‘Karm’ and we can free our self from all that old stuff and get Moksha (Nirvan). In Reiki training similar things come across, in that, during Reiki, we are getting energy from Universal energy, which cleans our Aura body.
    Our ‘Chakra’ system is like energy enhancing system. When emerging passes through ‘chakra’ it gets more activated. (Similar to energy particles passes through ‘accelerators’, well known example is the research on God particle – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Particle_accelerator and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Large_Hadron_Collider )
    When energy releases from Muladhar chakra, it passes through ‘Ida Nadi’ i.e. one of the three energy channel, then it passes through ‘Swdhisthan Chakra’ gets more energy, similarly it travel upto ‘Agna chakra’, then it returns through ‘Pigla Nadi’ passing through again all lower chakras and again it enters in ‘Susumna Nadi’ and passing again through all charkra, gets very high energy and ultimately crosses the break between ‘Agna chakra’ and ‘Sahastrar Chakra’ and emerge in universe through ‘Sahstrar Chakra’ (‘Sahstrar Chakra has 1000 petals so it give highest thrust, similar to we have to give high thrust to rockets to break earth’s gravitational barrier to go to ‘space’)
    According to this logic, body should feel heat, but some people say there is ‘cold’ feelings are also there.
    Whatever, but I would like to know that – do you feel the above logic is true ?
    How explain Chakra and Nadis ?
    I am following your blog through RSS Feed.

      Hi Jagadish,
      i can only say that in various scripts, not only Hinduistic but also Christian or Islamic or in other traditions, the rising of Kundalini energy is described as a COOL BREEZE, (named diffferently of course, but the mechanism is the same). And also millions of people all over the world already have been experienceing the same senstaion since the 1970 when Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has discovered this method of en-mass Kundalini awackening. That is all I know – theory and practice.
      I suggest you making your honest experience with the Sahaja method and see for yourself, what you would feel: http://www.freemeditation.com/online-meditation/self-realization-workshop-kundalini-awakening/

        Recently I have tried to understand ‘Dhyan’ (Meditation) with reference to ‘Ashtanga Yoga’. Will be back with some useful stuff. Again thanks for information and reply.

    I am writing this to seek information about whether to practice foot soaking daily along with meditation in sahaja yoga. I have been a sahaja yoga practitioner for the past 6 years and I do foot soaking daily ,but recently i came across a post which says foot soaking should not be practiced for life time,that it should not be made a ritual. Is it fine to practice meditation without foot soaking on daily basis. I did a research on the internet regarding the same and found that only few lectures of Shri Mataji contains information on foot soaking.
    Here is the link of that post that i read.
    I am now in a confused state as no one has clearly said anything on this topic.
    so I kindly request you to clear my confusion and enlighten me on this topic.

    jai shri mataji.

    Hi Axinia,

    zdravstvuite ! I was born and brought up in a town which had lot of Russians as the town has a huge steel plant which came up with Russian collaboration. My father was trained in Russia to work in that plant so he spent a good one year in Russia and could speak Russian very fluently.

    He told us a thousand stories about Russia and how wonderful the people are. Moreover, in out town too we made quite a few Russian friends and they were all very polite and fabulous people. They gave us children Russian toffees everytime they would walk past our playing grounds. Those were moments of great joy for us kids as Russian toffees were very unique and bigger than our Indian ones.

    I am a what you say “puritan” Hindu or Indian and i treasure my great Ancient heritage. However, our government since Independence has systematically tarnished and stigmatized Hindu ethos so this present fourth generation is brazenly anti-Hindu and anti-Hindu culture. I am Appalled at its state but feel helpless all the time. Your blog about Russian- Sanskrit was very touching. That people so far away are exploring true roots of their culture….even if it proves to be in some other culture. And here is a country like India which is hell bent upon dumping its history and culture as it has come to accept the western education and western lifestyle as the “only right way to live” and feels ashamed of its Hindu traditions which are considered “Backward” !!!!

    Will sign off right now. But would love to write more ..if u reply …or if u are interested in knowing more about what i have written.

    Bye Axinia !!

      Dear Yogeet, thank you for your comment, I think I know very well what you mean. This tendency is unfortunately everywhere, although as far as I know they try to combat it in Russia…In fact I want to write a post about the real reason why such great ancient cultures like Indian and Chinese have felled under the Western spell. Coming soon 🙂

  105. Hey Axinia

  109. Hey Axinia!

    How are you? 🙂

    I came across your blog from a comment you left at freemeditation.com. I noticed you have a very kind face.

    I am having trouble getting people to read my newly released personalized novel ‘Twitter Lover’ in which the protagonist falls in love with the reader. I would like to request you to please read it. It is really short. I promise you that you won’t regret reading it. If you wish, I will give it to you for free.

    Please read the synopsis at twitterlover.com and let me know what you think.

    Can you please tell me why are most people keep on staring at me and most of them get really scared and change route when I notice them or make an eye contact… Also I experience a regular pour of something (energy may be) over me.. Tried following spiritual teachers but my ego always messes up and draws me away… All I do is pray..

  111. Dear Axinia,
    Your last comment was in 2014 from Austria. After that no comments are on the site. Is the site still active or the legacy you had created for the generations in 2019 and on.

    Nice share of linkage between Societies which live in different parts of world apart.

    Rare wild flower still breathe could be felt through words of wisdom.

    With Regards
