NEW TO MEDITATION

Watching the Senses Meditation

 Focus the attention to your breath and sensory experiences:

  • Whenever you notice something, mentally note: “feeling,” “hearing,” “tasting,” “smelling,” “touching.”
  • Observe the senses but refrain from engaging with yourself. Note the experience and return to the breath.

Watching the Emotions Meditation

Focus the attention mainly to the breath and sensory experiences while also noting your emotional experiences.

  • Whenever a particular feeling comes up, mentally note it as “liking,” “disliking,” “anger,” “sadness,” “fear,” “resentment,” “anxiety,” “guilt,” etc. and let it go.
  • Instead of becoming involved with the emotions, observe them so that you may release them and then return to the breath.

5-Minute Gratitude Meditation

Minute One

Take this first minute to focus your breath. Inhale for five counts (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and exhale for five counts (5, 4, 3, 2, 1). As you walk your internal gaze through your body, use the breath to release any places where you are holding tension.

Minute Two

Focus your gratitude inward. Think of the aspects about yourself for which you are grateful – the parts of your character that allow you to spread positivity and light to those around you. Instead of “wishing” you were a certain way, remember that even the little things are worth acknowledgement.

Minute Three

Expand your gratitude outward. Think of the people for whom you are grateful for having presence in your life. Flip through the mental photo album of everyone who loves, supports, and encourages you to be better. Know that these relationships will be enriched by even a moment of energy and acknowledgement.

Minute Four

Send your gratitude into the universe with your own thank you prayer. Here is the thank you prayer that I used today – Thank you. I am grateful. I am thankful for my family, the roof over my head, my boyfriend, and my friends. I am thankful for my process and what I have accomplished in my life so far.

Minute Five

Repeat the mantra: My life is full and abundant.

KUNDALINI

Intro to Kundalini Meditation

Set Your Intention
Have a clear picture of what the result of this meditation will be for you. Why have you chosen to do it? The clearer your focus and intention, the more power behind the meditation. You get what you project, so project the result.

Meditation Minutes
Yogic science says that there are specific lengths of time needed for certain desired effects in meditation. Thus, meditations (and exercises in a kriya) are held for a specified period of time.

3 minutes: Affects circulation (blood) and electromagnetic field.

11 minutes: Changes glandular system and nerves.

22 minutes: Balances and coordinates the three minds.

31 minutes: Affects all the cells and rhythms of the body and all layers of the mind’s projection.

62 minutes: Changes the gray matter of the brain. Integrates the subconscious “shadow mind” and the outer projection.

2 ½ hours: Holds the new pattern in the subconscious mind by the surrounding universal mind.

Meditation Cycles of Transformation
Committing to a personal practice makes the meditation process of transformation and self-discovery your own. To master the effects of a meditation, practice it as a sadhana, as a daily discipline. This will develop a life-promoting habit. Habit controls us so much that it is said that we can actually change our destiny by changing our habits. We can use various cycles of the human mind to help replace unwanted patterns of behavior with new, more positive ones. Choose a meditation that suits your goals and/or inspires you, and commit to practicing it over 40, 90, 120, or 1,000 days.

40 days: Change a habit.
90 days: Confirm the habit.
120 days: You are the new habit.
1,000 days: Mastery of the new habit.

Aura Cleansing Kundalini Yoga with Silvia Mordinit

Isn't it about time to clean out all the ick you’ve been packing around your heart. How? With the Kundalini Aura Sweep! Let's clean up all the energetic debris, soot, and plain ol’ negative energy that accumulates around us. This kriya will fully clean, cleanse, prepare you for everything you need and want to do in life.

Benefits of Kundalini Criss Cross Aura Sweep:
-Clarity
-Helps you “set” your protective aura for the day
-Strengthens your energetic force field, Magnetic Field
-Cleansing, physically + mentally + spiritually
-Powers your Aura.
-Bestows charisma and magnetism.
-Tones your arms, shoulders and chest muscles.
-Improves your respiratory system.
-Builds willpower and character.

HOW TO DO IT:
1. Sit in easy pose (legs crossed).
2. Extend both arms in front of you, slightly raised such that your palms are at hairline level (top of the forehead).
3. You can either have all your finger extended as I have or do the more advanced mudra, where your thumb is at the base of your pinkie with the other fingers extended.
4. Close you eyes and tune into your energy. As you do this exercise you can visualize your Aura glowing brighter and brighter.
5. Begin to rapidly criss-cross the arms in front of you, bringing one on top and then the other .

Our electromagnetic energy field is known as the aura. A strong and balanced aura will help protect you from negative energy and keep you healthy.

"Those people who are humble, affectionate, serving, and who breathe the divine force within themselves and make their mind concentrate on one breath, and pray to the universal spirit by tuning themselves in, their electromagnetic field gets charged because of the life force, and their circumvent force becomes so strong that it can keep away all the negative forces. Those people who have a very strong circumvent force do not have any chance to let any type of negative forces enter into their body field. In other words, in their aura, they remain happy, healthy and holy."
Yogi Bhajan 1/1/70

#Ego Eradicator has been one of the most transformative exercises I practice from #Kundalini #Yoga. It reminds me to meet my ego over and over. It serves me to see that I am the one doing the action but I am co-creating as a vehicle of the action as well as not getting attached to the outcome.

“When you waste your energy, the fact of it is, you become smaller and smaller in your thinking and ultimately you become so small, you cannot think of the Universe. And when you do not think of the Universe, you do not think of the Creator of the Universe. This Universe into which you were born is like a university of life from which you have to graduate. You have to grow to become something. Just as when you are born, you grow. You have to start today and get going. Live, live well. Live with a smile. All will come to you because God cannot abandon what He has created just as you cannot abandon what you have created. You cannot let your ego go. God cannot let you go—though you do not recognize and are not factual about it.
When you think too much, you become full of thoughts, then you worry. And when you worry, you squeeze, you contract. Your joy is gone. Your happiness is over. Your money is of no worth. Your home is of no use. Your children do not even look at you. All this you create and then you blame others. Let your ego go.”

Sat Kriya Kundalini Yoga with Silvia Mordini

Use Sat Nam mantra which means “Truth is my whole identity. I agree to the truth within.”

How To Do It:
1. Sitting on the heels in rock pose, interlace the fingers with the Jupiter (Index) fingers pointing straight up.
2. Cross the thumbs: Females cross left over right and Males cross right over left.
3. Raise the arms straight up and rotate the upper arms inward so that the arms are hugging the ears.
4. In this position you will chant the mantra “Sat Naam” in the following way:
5. Pull the navel point in* as you chant “Sat!” (Sounds like ‘Sutt.’)
6. Release the lock as you chant “Naam.” (Almost like a sigh with the sound “Naam”)

Finishing:
1. At the end, inhale completely and hold, squeezing the root lock and the muscles of the back and shoulders for as long as you can. Imagine that you are sending the energy up through the top of the head. Exhale.
2. Inhale and repeat above step one more time.
3. Then inhale completely and exhale completely then hold the breath out long as you can, while pulling the root lock and squeezing the muscles of the back all the way up again.
4. Inhale, and relax.

Time: 3 minutes up to 62 minutes.

A Few of The Benefits of The Sat Kriya:
1. Rock pose (sitting on the heels) is the basis of Sat Kriya and it aids digestion… it is said that sitting on the heels one can digest rocks, hence the name. This pose combined with the tension of the Mulbandh (root lock) further stimulates the stomach, intestines and the overall digestive tract.
2. Stimulates the glandular (endocrine) system, particularly the lymph glands which remove toxins from the body.
3. Strengthens the heart through the rhythmic increase in blood pressure which results from the pumping movement of the navel point.
4. Increases and strengthens the nervous system for overall well-being and radiance.

RELEASING ANXIETY & WORRY

Smoke Out, Light In Meditation

  • While breathing out, imagine that all of your negative energies, mistakes, misunderstanding, and emotions leave your body with the breath. Visualize this energy as black smoke, which goes out into space and completely disappears.
  • While breathing in, imagine that all the positive energy of the universe enters your body with the breath. Visualize this positive energy as pure white light, which enters all the parts of your body, pervading every cell and atom. Enjoy this clear white light.
  • As your comfort level increases, use every breath to inhale white light and to exhale black smoke.
  • When you feel distracted by other thoughts, observe them but refrain from becoming involved or attached. Transform these thoughts into black smoke and breathe them out.

Relaxing by Stressing Meditation

Relax the body by systematically tensing all of the muscles, holding the tension for 5-10 seconds, and then releasing into an enjoyable neutral, relaxed position.

  • Find a comfortable position, either sitting or lying down.
  • As you inhale deeply, tense all of the muscles on your face, squeezing and straining as hard as you can. Hold this position for 5-10 seconds. As you exhale, imagine breathing out the stress that your face holds as you release the tension of the facial muscles.
  • As you inhale deeply again, tense the muscles of the neck and shoulders. Hold the tension, then release and allow the stress to dissipate with your exhalation.
  • Repeat this process as you move throughout your body:
    • Inhale deeply and tense the muscles of the arms and make fists with your fingers. Hold, then release with the exhalation.
    • Inhale deeply and tense the muscles of your chest, abdomen, and back. Hold, then release with the exhalation.
    • Inhale deeply and tense the muscles of your buttocks, legs, and feet. Hold, then release with the exhalation.
  • After moving throughout the body, maintain a steady breath and enjoy your state of relaxation. If you still feel tension somewhere, send your steady breath to that area. Imagine the stress and tension melting away as you exhale.

Eliminating Past and Future Meditation

Find a comfortable seat and rest the hands on the legs, palms facing down. Initiate a calm, steady breath.

  • When the mind wanders off to thoughts from the past, gently tap your left leg.
  • When your mind wanders off to thoughts of the future, gently tap your right leg.
  • Whenever a thought arises, mentally note “memory” or “fantasy” and then return to the breath.

Cocoon of Light Meditation

  • Find a comfortable position – standing, seated, or lying down.
  • As you inhale, bring your hands with palms facing forward to either side of your ears. As you exhale, close your palms together to meet in front of your face. Imagine this motion closing out all distraction and drawing your focus inward.
  • Take a new breath. As you exhale, lift your hands above the crown of your head, right palm on top of the left. As you inhale, imagine white light pushing out through the crown of your head into your hands as they lift higher up. This light represents love, kindness, and everything you know to be true about yourself.
  • As you exhale, open your arms into a circle around your body, down to your feet. Imagine a cocoon of light surrounding your entire body, protecting your true intentions and shining them outward.

RELAXING & CALMING

Butter on the Head Meditation

  • Imagine a piece of gold-colored butter resting on the crown of your head. As the butter slowly melts down your body, all stress and tension disappear.
  • As the butter slowly flows over your forehead, the creases in your forehead soften and your brow un-furrows.
  • As the butter runs down over your eyes and cheeks, the muscles of the face relax.
  • As the butter melts along the back of your head, your neck, and your shoulders, the tension releases.
  • As the butter melts along the arms, the hands, and down across the chest and belly, the warmth soothes the muscles, dissolving strain and tightness.
  • As the butter runs down your back, your legs, and feet, each muscle is bathed and released from holding patterns.
  • Now the entire body is covered in golden butter. Your body is relaxed and light. You radiate health.
  • Scan the entire body again and exhale any remaining stress or tension.

9-Round Breathing Meditation

This meditation is a pre-tantric purification practice in which you visualize the three main energy channels in the body. It is used in the beginning of a meditation session to calm and clear the mind in only a minute or so.

The Central Channel:

  • Visualize the body as being completely empty and transparent, then inside it appears the Central Channel.
  • The Central Channel starts between the eyebrows, continues back just under the skull, and from the crown of the head it goes straight down to four finger-widths underneath the navel, staying slightly in front of the spine.
  • The Central Channel is a transparent blue tube, with the thickness of a large-bore drinking straw.

The Lateral Channels:

  • The two lateral channels are on the left and right sides of the body.
  • Both of these channels are transparent, with the thickness of a standard drinking straw.
  • The right channel is red and the left channel is white.

The three channels are flexible and connect with each other just below the navel.

As you practice this meditation, make your breath longer and deeper, but keep it quiet. If possible, one should not hear the breathing. If you have a cold and one or both nostrils are clogged, just imagine breathing through the different nostrils. Complete no more than 2-3 cycles of each round.

Round One: During the first round of breathing, inhale through the left nostril, keeping the right nostril closed with one finger. Imagine the air traveling from the left nostril into the left channel, up to the crown, and all the way down underneath the navel. At this point, the left channel connects to the right channel. Exhale through the right channel by closing the left nostril with the same finger.

As you inhale through the left channel, imagine breathing in pure white light. As you exhale through the right channel, imagine you are exhaling black smoke that disappears beyond the universe. The black smoke represents desire and attachment, which pollutes the left channel and collects at the navel center. Its exit route is through the right channel. Repeat three times.

Round Two: During the second round of breathing, inhale through the right nostril, keeping the left nostril closed with one finger. The air travels the same route as above, however in the opposite direction.

As you inhale through the right channel, imagine breathing in pure white light. As you exhale through the left channel, imagine you are exhaling black smoke that disappears beyond the universe. This time, the black smoke represents anger and hatred, which pollutes the right channel and collects below the navel. Its exit route is through the left channel. Repeat three times.

Round Three: During the third round of breathing, inhale pure white light through both the right and left channels. Visualize both channels connected to the central channel below the navel. Exhale black smoke through the central channel, visualizing the exit point as the space between the eyebrows. This time, the black smoke represents ignorance and confusion, which pollutes the central channel. Repeat three times.


Watching Your Breath Meditation

Find a comfortable seat.

Focus soft eyes on the tip of your nose. Feel your breath coming in and going out of the nostrils. To help you concentrate, count each full round of breath (inhale + exhale) from one through ten. When you arrive at ten, simply start at one again. All of your attention is with the feeling of the breath entering and leaving the nose and counting – nothing more, nothing less.

Regularly check in with yourself. Are you still focused on the sensation of the breath and counting? If not, refrain from becoming upset. When you find yourself distracted, simply return to counting from one.

Before you end your meditation session, release the concentration from counting and focusing on the tip of your nose. Simply be aware of how you feel for the next minute or so. As you close, dedicate the positive energy of the way you feel to your personal prayers.

MANIFESTING BEST LIFE

Body of Light Meditation

  • Visualize a white ball of light above the crown of your head. It is pure white energy, somewhat smaller than the size of your head. It has no real form, which allows you to feel its presence instead of focusing on details.
  • The white light embodies all of the pure love of the universe and the accomplishment of the highest potential of living beings.
  • Visualize the ball of light becoming smaller, about the size of your thumb. The white light enters your body through the crown of your head and descends to the level of your heart.
  • Now the white light begins to expand, filling your entire body. The material form of your body dissolves into light. A body of pure white light remains, formless and without shape.
  •  Focus on the feeling of the light-body. All negativities, problems, worries, and fears are gone. Only peace and happiness remain.
  • As distracting thoughts arise, dissolve them into the light.

Accessing Your Optimal Future Self Meditation

  • Take a few moments to settle into a seat of meditation. Follow your next exhalation to the bottom of the breath. Notice the space between the bottom of the exhalation and the next inhalation. Dwell in this space, being with the stillness.
  • Bring forward the intention that brought you to this path – whether it is a goal you wish to manifest or an issue that you wish to heal. Acknowledge your willingness to allow your own deep wisdom to activate your potential in meeting this intention.
  • Imagine that you are walking along a path within your own internal landscape. Allow the landscape to emerge into your awareness. Notice whether the surface underfoot is soft or hard, smooth or textured. Is it flat, uphill, or downhill? Notice the sensations in your feet as you take steps along the path. Pay attention to how each step moves you along the path and notice the experience. Does one step come fluidly after the other, or is there effort?
  • Expand your awareness further to the surrounding landscape and environment. Notice the colors, shapes, and scents that come into your awareness. Allow the impressions to drop in.
  • Say “yes” to your deep wisdom with each step you take along the way. Every step represents and supports your willingness to activate the potential and outcome you seek to achieve.
  • As you continue along the path, you notice a figure coming toward you. As the figure approaches, you see that it is your optimal future self. Allow impressions to rise without preconceptions or demands. Simply notice what kind of person your future self appears to be.
  • Become aware of your responses to your optimal future self. Pay attention to what attracts you and feels good to you, what you want to push away, and any mixed feelings that may arise.
  • Take a moment to step inside your future self and become this part of you. Imagine that your body is the body of the future self. See through the eyes of the future self and listen through the ears of the future self. Notice any differences between how the future self lives in his or her body versus your present-day experience.
  • From inside the future self, ask to experience yourself as you will be when you have met your intention. Here, it is important for your conscious mind to stay out of the way, clearing out expectations and preconceptions, so that you can notice what arises.
  • Standing in front of your future self now, notice what you experience if you open your heart to this part of you. If you allow yourself to say “yes” to a relationship with the potential in your optimal future self, you are saying “yes” to allow it to become your own.
  • If it feels comfortable to you, allow yourself to walk with your future self along the path. Know that this wiser part of you has already made the journey you seek to achieve and will guide and support you.
  • Take a moment to become aware of the breath again. Travel with the next exhalation down to the bottom, to the stillness in the space between breaths. Stay there for a moment or two and review your experience before returning to your everyday state of mind.
  • When you’re ready, return from your journey with the awareness that your future self is always with you and you can access him or her anytime. In fact, you might want to take a moment each morning to reconnect with your optimal future self to reinforce that you are willing to meet the intentions you seek.
