MY 100th POST!!! Meditation for Healing

Greetings of peace...

If you are breathing on this planet then you more than likely know of the carnage that is taking place in Gaza. It is hard to remain neutral, not form an opinion and choose a side if you are a critical thinking hue-man Being. Like you, I have read up on the history in the region, read countless articles, I have see graphic photos, all of which have left me with feelings of hopelessness and despair. Especially when it becomes common knowledge that non combative civilians are being massacred with our tax dollars after so many cutbacks and lay-offs.

I used to pride my Self on being the poster child of Mid East peace: my sister converted to Orthodox Judaism and I became a Sufi Muslim. Although we have brushed up against each other at different junctures love has always carried us through but on this matter we remain divided. At least we have begun to dialogue with her asking questions about my faith. We are more similar than dissimilar. I am also making a greater effort in forgiving. I find that the more peace I find within my Self, the more peace I transmit therefore effecting change in my environment/life. I believe if we did this collectively, we can heal Gaza and other parts of the world that are in need of healing. Lets vibrate peace!

BEGIN: Sit in EASY POSE, with a light JALANDAR BANDH (elogated spine, lifting behind the head and slightly tucking in the chin). Rub your hands together and bring them to PRAYER POSE with your thumbs pressed against your sternum and your shoulders rolled back and down. Your eyes rolled in and up towards your THIRD EYE. Inhale through the nose and chant ONG NA MO GURU DEV NAMO (I bow to the Divine Teacher within) on two breaths. Listen here for the correct pronunciation and cadence of the ADI MANTRA which is found on my CD URBAN MANTRA: VOL I. (Please purchase if you have not already. All proceeds from the album go to Rhythm & Breath's continued effort to bring affordable and accessible mystical tools to urban folk).

MUDRA:
 FIRST POSITION: Your left hand is on your tummy, while the right hand begins with the elbow bent and palm flat, facing forward as if you are making a pledge. Chant: RA MA

SECOND POSTION: Extend your arm 4 inches. Chant: DA SA.

 THIRD POSITION: EXTEND your arm 4 more inches. Chant SA SAY.

 
FOURTH POSITION: Extend your arm all the way. Chant: SO HUNG.

MANTRA: This mantra consists of 8 basic sounds: RA MA DA SA, SA SAY SO HUNG

TRANSLATION:
RA - Sun
MA- Moon
DAA - Earth
SAA - Impersonal Infinity
SAA SAY - Totality of Infinity
SO - Personal sense of merger and identity
HUNG - The infinite, vibrating and real.

NOTES: This mantra taps into the energies of the sun, moon, earth, and the Infinite Spirit to bring deep healing. It is important to pull the navel point powerfully on the words So and Hung. Note that the word Hung is not long and drawn out. Rather, it is clipped off forcefully as you pull in the navel. Chant one complete cycle of the entire mantra with each breath. Then deeply inhale and repeat. Remember to move the mouth precisely with each sound. Try to feel the resonance in the mouth and in the sinus area.

FOCUS: Eyes are closed. 

VISUALIZATION: In your mind's eye envision peace within and without. Send peace to the Palestinian people of Gaza and all those that are suffering in the conflict and other wars around the world. 

TIME: You can do the meditation for 11 to 31 min. Decide before you begin and make the commitment to follow your time through til the very end. Leave at least 3 minutes before you conclude to switch the MANTRA to: PEACE (in your language of origin), SHALOM (peace in Hebrew), SALAAM (peace in Arabic). We will be doing this meditation collectively between the Ambrosial Hours of 5-7pm EST.

TO FINISH: Recite the Warrior Healers Affirmations in Gyan Mudra, your index finger pressed against your thumbs.

TO CLOSE: Rub your hands together, bring them to prayer pose and chant SAT NAM (Truth is my Identity) on one breath 3 times. Bring your hands up to your forehead and bow bringing your hands and head to the floor. This seals the work in your frontal lobe.

For any questions and further exploration...seek me in the circle. 

In Love and Light ,

PROSPERITY MEDITATION

"Don't let society, your culture, or family define what is success and abundance. 
Let your heart decide, then live accordingly." 
-Luz Emma

Greetings Beloveds! Once again we gather in our healing circle to explore prosperity: How it is defined by society, our families and communities? What it means to us and what have been the themes in our lives that facilitate or obstruct the flow of love, creativity, and abundance to us? We have learned in past prosperity meditations, that prosperity entails far more than transmitting the appropriate mantras associated with abundance to receive all that is our birth right. Yes, unexpected monetary gifts will flow to you if you are disciplined with your practice. Isn't part of the reason why we do prosperity meditations? But also know that "the weeds" of doubt and fear in our subconscious mind that choke our growth and expansion will also come to light. Prosperity and our ability to live an abundant life goes back to our deep feelings of worthiness and our sense of Self. These are molded by our past life karma, in this life-time by our parents, and reinforced by our communities but also our significant relationships. Rubbing up, at times, against our already sensitive and painful wounds. The themes recur in each stage of our ascension until we embody the appropriate lessons and they become a part of our Being/essence carrying us into infinity. Are you ready to heal your karma in order to give/receive infinity and live an abundant life? 
I am...Lets go!
 
BEGIN: Sit in EASY POSE, with a light JALANDAR BANDH (elogated spine, lifting behind the head and slightly tucking in the chin). Rub your hands together and bring them to PRAYER POSE with your thumbs against your sternum and your shoulders rolled back and down. Your eyes rolled in and up towards your THIRD EYE. Inhale through the nose and chant ONG NA MO GURU DEV NAMO (I bow to the Divine Teacher within) on two breaths. Listen here for the correct pronunciation and cadence of the ADI MANTRA which is found on my CD URBAN MANTRA: VOL I. Please purchase if you have not already. All proceeds from the album go to Rhythm & Breath's continued effort to bring affordable and accessible mystical tools to urban folk.

FOCUS: Eyes are closed, turned up and in, focusing at the Third Eye. Or you may have the eyes open, looking down at the tip of the nose. The choice is yours.
MUDRA: Hold your hands in GYAN MUDRA by touching the thumbs to the tips of the index fingers. Put your elbows by your sides, with the forearms parallel to the ground in front of you with the palms facing up, and wrists are straight.

MANTRA: HAR HA-RAY HA-REE WHA-HAY GU-ROO (Translation: All aspects of The Creator are bliss) Chant the mantra in a steady cadence. Remember chanting is not singing. This mantra uses the three qualities of HAR—seed, flow, and completion—unto the ecstatic Infinity of God.

TIME: Continue for 11-31 minutes.

NOTES: This meditation provides guidance, and the way through any block. The future is clear, without anxiety. Every cause has an impact and an orbit of effect. This meditation allows you to use the Neutral Mind to intuit all the expected and unexpected impacts of the mental thoughts you feel now, or that were a part of you in the past. If this part of you is unbalanced, people will distance themselves socially out of subconscious fear of your perception, bluntness, and truth. When balanced, you gain wisdom and self-guidance to hold in trust all that comes to you. You are never swayed by abundance and hold closely to the path.
TO FINISH: Recite the Warrior Healers Affirmations in Gyan Mudra, your index finger pressed against your thumbs.
TO CLOSE: Rub your hands together, bring them to prayer pose and chant SAT NAM (Truth is my Identity) on one breath 3 times. Bring your hands up to your forehead and bow bringing your hands and head to the floor. This seals the work in your frontal lobe.
So there it is R & B Yogis! Lets cultivate abundance individually and collectively. For any questions and further exploration...seek me in the circle. 

In Love and Light , 
Mama Luz
