Prosperity, Fulfillment & Success Circling your Psyche

This meditation is fairly easy. It entails an easy mudra and mantra. The pranayam you will discover for yourself as you go deeper into the practice of this meditation.

We begin in easy pose as we begin every meditation. Take a couple deep breaths and set your intention for this meditation. Visualize how you see yourself...prosperous, fulfilled and successful. When you have a clear vision in your mind's eye...rub your hands together and bring them to prayer pose. Cross left thumb over right if you are female, right over left of you are male. With your eyes closed and rolled up towards your third eye brow point, repeat the Adi Mantra ONG NA MO GURU DEV NAMO 3x's. You may chant it on one, or two breaths.

Sitting tall on your sitz bones with your spine straight, bend your elbows with your arms close to your sides and your hands pointing upward. Your Jupiter finger is straight and the rest of the fingers are bent and locked down with the thumb.

Move your hands in small, rapid circles. The fingers are moving towards your face but the circle is going outward. Maintain your elbows close to your torso. Simultaneously, you are going to chant the mantra, "HAR HARAY, HAREE." This means three aspects of the Creator...Power, Creative Action, and Completion.

Move quickly and chant the mantra accordingly. As far as coordinating the breathing, I like to sip in air when I run out of breath while I am saying the mantra. You can kind of observe my technique in the video for this meditation. Continue coordinating the rhythm and the breath for 11 minutes.

To finish continue circling your Jupiter fingers as fast as you can but change the mantra to "Har" which means God, or the Power of God...for 15 seconds.

Then relax for a minute with your hands in Gyan Mudra resting on your knees.

Recite the Warrior Healers Daily Affirmations

To close, rub your hands together and bring them to Prayer Pose.

Chant 3 Long SAT NAMS on one breath. Bring your hands to your forehead and bring your head and hands to the floor bowing. This seals the work of the mantra, mudra and pranayam in the frontal lobe of the brain.

So, there it is! Let Prosperity, Fulfillment & Success surround! not forget to make your donation for this cycle of meditation.
