Meditation for Word Power & Prosperity

Mercury retrograde is upon us, along with four other planets. UGH! This might be a good time to recommit to our spiritual practice so that we can ride the cosmic waves as gracefully as possible. Mercury retrograde is always a good time to slow ones' self down, quiet the mind and choose ones' words wisely to avoid miscommunication as much as hue-manly possible. For this reason, we are doing a 40 day meditation for "word power" with a bonus prosperity mantra...because we can always use abundance! The meditation is a pretty easy one, it is perfect for yogis new to the practice. It entails a simple mudra (hand position) and mantra (incantation). You will find the pranayam (breathing) that works best for you as you chant along.

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. Repeat two more times. Three times total. 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: The mudra, Buddha Mudra, the left hand is resting inside the right hand thumbs touching while resting on your lap.

MANTRA: The mantra is Har. Roll your "r" as you would when speaking Spanish. 
Har means the "creative infinity" another name for God. 

TIME: Chant in a monotone voice for 3 minutes minimum and 11 minutes is the ideal.

TO FINISH: Recite the Warrior Healers Affirmations in GYAN MUDRA, your index finger pressed against your thumbs. Or in BUDDHA MUDRA one hand resting in the other with the thumbs touching.

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.

There it is! Let's ride the waves!

Sat Nam!
