No better way to enter into Spring than with a full moon and a 40 day meditation. All is emerging and full! Lets harness that energy for prosperity, courage and to remove obstacles. For the O.G.s, we have done this meditation before but in a different mudra. I remember the challenge was learning the mantra and discipline, discipline, discipline! I suggest you do the meditation first thing in the morning. That way you won't get caught up in your day and forget to do it. Remember, Kundalini Yoga is a science. Numbers and times serve a purpose. If you mess up on day 39, you have to start over to day one.
A few things to keep in mind as we begin our practice: everything you need is already here. You lack nothing. You are whole. You are complete! The obstacles are usually within us and are karmic. It is a matter of having the courage and the discipline to discover what our obstacles are and removing them. Ok?! Now that we are pumped. Lets get it!
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.
Press your thumb against your forefinger in Gyan Mudra. Elbows straight with wrists resting on your knees. Palms facing up.
MANTRA: Pump your navel on each "HAR." To help you with the pronunciation of the mantras, listen to the HAR and GOBINDAY tracks also from my CD.
Har Har Har Har Gobinday
Har Har Har Har Mukunday
Har Har Har Har Udaaray
Har Har Har Har Apaaray
Har Har Har Har Hareeung
Har Har Har Har Kareeung
Har Har Har Har Nirnaamay
Har Har Har Har Akaamay
Gobinday – Sustaining,
Mukunday – Liberating,
Udaaray – Enlightening,
Apaaray – Infinite,
Hareeung – Destroying,
Kareeung – Creating,
Nirnaamay – Nameless,
Akaamay - Desireless
FOCUS: Eyes closed turn inward and upward.
TIME: 11 minutes.
This mantra fixes the mind to prosperity and power. It contains the eight facets of the Self. Har is the original force of Creativity. The four repetitions of Har give power to all aspects and provide the power to break down the barriers of the past. It converts fear into the domination to use and expand the reserve energy of the Navel Point. It invokes guidance and sustenance; all powers come to serve your true purpose.
TO CLOSE: Sit in silence and become thoughtless for 40 seconds. Then inhale, place the palms flat against the heart, pressure as hard as you can against the heart and squeeze the entire body, getting rid of all the sickness, disease, potential. Hold 17 seconds. Exhale. Repeat 3 times.
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.
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.
So there it is R & B Yogis! It feels good to be back. We will convene and discuss on the group chat on Instagram @rhythmandbreath. I will meet you in the ethers!
