Whirling meditation is an technique that will liberate you from the mundane world, it is an active form of meditation that centers the mind and body within minutes.
This form of meditation allows you to break free from the chains of the material world and reconnect to our heart center. Your heart center is where divine love, music, faith, and poetry reside. Open communication between the self and the heart center creates unification between the divine influences and self. Whirling can instantly change your outlook on life. While whirling you may experience emotional release such as laughter, tears, joy, peace, and love from the connection you feel with the divine.
Everything around us whirls. As natural as the slow spin of the earth, when we whirl we connect to the energy that makes up all that we are. As you turn you become the center even though your entire body is in motion. Creating a storm of energy with you as the core, silent and still. You don’t leave your body in this meditation to become a witness to what is happening. Instead, you put all that you are into the motion of whirling. You become the whirling.
Whirling creates the natural feeling of being intoxicated allowing your heart center to open. With communication moving freely from your center to the divine and back again you will experience feelings of spiritual ecstasy, connection, and awakening. Your body will decide when the whirling will end. You don’t need to consciously decide to let your body fall. The softness of your body will simply dissolve and you will land softly on the ground.
Your navel represents the connection you once had to your mother inside her womb and that connection is needed once again when you connect with the earth. On your stomach, grow imaginary roots that shift and meld you to the grounding affect of the earth. As the earth absorbs and dissolves the excess energy the whirling created let your arms extend as if you were hugging her. The feeling of being in the loving arms of your mother will surround you.
Osho whirling meditation has many benefits. It enables you to temporarily severe the hold the mundane world has on you. It allows you to build energy that focus in on your heart center and opens communication with the divine. When you’re no longer whirling you make a true connection with the earth as you disperse the energy that built up inside of you back into the soil. The low impact exercise of Whirling will keep you slim and full of energy when done on a regular basis.
“There is a method, a Sufi method know as dervish dancing. Sufis dance. You might have observed small children whirling, dancing round and round and then getting in a whirl… And small children like whirling. Why? — because when they whirl, they get a deep kick, and in that kick they again feel themselves beyond the body. And that’s a beautiful experience — that’s why they like it. Studying this whirling of children, Sufis have developed a method, a meditation method — they turn, whirl. … they will tell you to dance, and go on in a mad whirl, and remain a witness — as if a wheel is moving, and the axis is there and on the axis, the wheel is moving…The axis remains constantly in one position, centered, and the wheel moves on it. Whirl like a wheel, and remember your witness inside as a center. Suddenly you will feel you are the center and the body is just a wheel.” – Osho
