Meditation for Mental Balance

Balance brings presence. And presence brings infinity. - Luz Emma

No matter how hard we try, or how zen we appear to be, there are times when we have hue-man moments and feel worried, overwhelmed, stressed, consumed. Sometimes, we don't even realize that our minds are burdened but subconsciously it effects us and makes it challeging to be present for ourselves...let alone others. Meditation helps ease our minds so that we can flow and be open to the opportunities and beauty that surround us. This meditation is for mental balance and is one of five meditations given to specifically "to prepare for the gray period of the planet and to bring mental balance." - Yogi Bhajan. From the state of the world today, it is my guess that we are currently in the gray period of the planet. And be-ing the celestial be-ings that we are, how could we not be effected by the cosmos? As above...so below, right?! So lets use this practice to bring mental balance as we create and burn karma and navigate through life.

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. 

MUDRA: Interlace the fingers with the palms facing up. Hold the inverted Venus Lock at the solar plexus.

EYES: Are one-tenth open.

MANTRA: Gobinday, Mukanday, Udaaray, Apaaray, Hareeang, Kareeang, Nirnaamay, Akaamay

TRANSLATION: These are the eight aspects of God in the Sikh tradition: Sustainer, Liberator, Enlightener, Infinite, Destroyer, Creator, Nameless, Desireless.

TIME: Start with 11 min. and work your way up to 31 min.

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 get our balance on!

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

Salaam, Shalom, Sat Nam, 
Mama Luz
