There is an older discussion of the anointing here: https://signposts02.wordpress.com/2009/08/13/what-is-the-anointing/
I’ll add this information that are in the comment section.
The definition for anoint/anointing is ‘to smear’.
dictionary.com has the following definitions:
tr.v. a·noint·ed, a·noint·ing, a·noints
1. To apply oil, ointment, or a similar substance to.
2. To put oil on during a religious ceremony as a sign of sanctification or consecration.
3. To choose by or as if by divine intervention.
I am aware of the doctrines of being ‘slain in the spirit’. Are they the same thing? There is also a concept of the ‘anointing’ being in the flow, on the go and moving now…
Now I am aware of psychic punches being related to ‘being slain in the spirit’,
and I am aware of the kundalini teachings and spirit in relation to moving under the ‘anointing’.
These are real things and I think they are important to compare against these recent concepts of ‘anointing’ and ‘slain in the spirit’.
A quick excerpt from a this fanstic article found here:
The Distributors of the Power
“Anyone on fire” can give shaktipat, i.e. anyone who’s kundalini is already awakened. The more relevant question is: “Who should give shaktipat?”…
Who can give Shakti-pat?: anyone who has received the ability from the guru or one of his disciples.
Who can administer the “anointing”: anyone who has received it from a person already “anointed”
How one receives Kundalini Awakening: Through the laying-on-of-hands during “Shakti-pat” initiation
How one receives this “”anointing””: Through the laying-on-of hands called an impartation by someone.
