About Gates of Power®

Gates of Power® is a revolutionary method for self healing and self actualization.

It guides and empowers you through a unique combination of processes, concepts, and excercises to go beyond self limiting patterns and discover your power, your expression, and fullfillment.


Mindful Meditation: 

Open Yourself to Receive 

An excerpt by Shri Brahmananda Sarasvati 
from "Automatic & Spontaneous Meditation" 



"The word meditation is used in two different senses, as the end and the means. You have to open your door to receive your guest. You have to open your window to receive air from the atmosphere and sunlight from the sun. Here, in the above examples, you have to do something in order to receive something, that is to say, to receive the guest, air or sunlight.  If you do not open your door, you cannot receive your guest, and if you do not open your window, you cannot receive fresh air and sunlight. 


In the same way, when the thinking mind, the talking mind, outgoing mind, is active, then your inner more conscious, awakened mind is locked and is active, then your inner, more conscious, awakened mind is locked and energy cannot come in. The cosmic consciousness is always present, waiting like a guest, but it cannot manifest because the thinking mind, which is like the host to receive the guest, is not available. 


You cannot have two opposite movements at the same time. You cannot go East and West simultaneously. You cannot sleep and go jogging at the same time. It is impossible to puff out your cheeks and laugh at the same time. 


That is to say, the mind cannot do two opposite movements, outgoing and ingoing, at the same time. 


Only this inner opening you should do. Then meditation happens automatically and spontaneously, just as the air and the sunlight come in automatically when the windows are open."
