Shakti is a powerful technology, and a few simple rules should
be observed when using it.
Keep to the schedule for doing sessions. Sessions are done every
72 hours or once a week. Do not create your own variations on sessions
designs (switching back and forth between signals over the same
place, moving coils during sessions unless suggested, or using Shakti
signals with electrodes instead of the coils).
Do not combine Shakti with other mind machines in real-time. Light
and sound devices (that use binaural beats or flashing lights),
CES (Cerebral Electircal Stimulation), TENS (transcutaneous [through
the skin] electrical nerve stimulation) devices adapted for neural
use, common magnets held in place with a headband, and crystals
driven by electricity of any kind are only some of the many 'mind
machines'. Negative effects have been reported from the simultaneous
use of Shakti with other mind machines. However, there is also good
news for the users of other mind machines. When they are used about
two hours AFTER a Shakti session, their effects can be amplified.

during Shakti sessions has been reported to be more difficult,
but has also been reported to be more effective when done about
two hours after a Shakti session.
Be careful about doing too many mind techniques. Traditional spiritual
practice can be deepened by adding more practices (such as yoga,
prayer and meditation) to your spiritual life. This is supported
by many spiritual traditions. Some kinds of monastic lineages will
actually fill the entire day with spiritual practices. However,
the same does not apply to mind machines. There is a limit to the
number of mind machines of any kind that can be combined without
ill-effects. Too many, and you can give your mind conflicting instructions.
This applies to all mind machines, not just Shakti. Negative effects
have occurred in this way. The limit seems to be from three to five
devices, depending on the individual. Further study, which may take
some time to appear, are needed.
devices, which rely on creating a flow of electricity through the
body, should be avoided when doing Shakti sessions, either as a
series of sessions, or as individual sessions. One such example
is the "Rods of Ra".
These use copper and zinc rods, filled with several different materials,
and held with wet hands, to create a current much like the ones
produced by common batteries. When used according to insrtructions,
these (and other similar technologies) will feed current into one
side of the body (and with it, the brain). For the "Rods of
Ra", this is the right side, which is the side of the brain
where fear and sadness (as well as trance, meditation, meaningful
inner imagery and a wide range of other spiritual experiences) appear.

The Rods of Ra are
claimed to be a re-discovered ancient Egyptian technology, while
the archeological finds on which the Rods of Ra are based are
made of stone. It's possible the the Rods of Ra have a stronger
output than their ancient precursors.
