In Mysticism?

  1. In Western occultism and esotericism, the hexagram symbolizes the planetary/archonic sphere of influence (whereas the pentragram symbolizes the elemental and terrestial sphere of influence). It is used in certain rituals in Thelemic and post-modern ceremonial magick to connect with energies related to the planets. In Hermetic alchemy, the septagram also is related to the planetary/archonic spheres).
    It also is a symbol of balance and the union of complementary forces–namely feminine and masculine cosmic or archetypal energies. In Eastern mysticism it represents the heart chakra and the union of consciousness (Shiva) and energy (Shakti).

  2. It can signifiy the Star of David, or Shield of David (the Mogen David). …
    Or the Amish hex signs or “barn star”.
    And, if you are a Trekkie, it means there are some Vulcans around here, somewhere. 😉 Or maybe some Jewish/Amish Trekkies searching for common ground. ( No – not kidding. ) who have converted to one of the Indic religions. (The downward triangle symbolizes Shakti, the sacred embodiment of femininity, and the upward triangle symbolizes Shiva, or Agni Tattva, representing the focused aspects of masculinity.)

How to perform Yoga Nidra : Art of Yogi Sleep

Yoga nidra or yogi sleep has been used for thousands of years by yogis. In the Upanishads, there are three states of consciousness: waking, dreaming and deep sleep. Yoga nidra allows an individual to leave the waking state, move past the dreaming state and into deep sleep while remaining awake or conscious during the whole process. In yoga nidra, there are no dreams to explore. Instead, it is a process of emptying. It purifies the deeper aspect of the human mind by exploring deep impressions or samskaras. This is essential as samskaras drive our karma.
