Welcome OG, new, returning and crash n burning R & B Yogis! I don't know about you, but love and relationships haven't been my focus over the past few years. Even before the pandemic, I turned my focus inward to concentrate on my own healing and reflect on the energy that I attract and I am attracted to and why. It was much needed work but after years of isolation from the pandemonium, my heart is open to the possibility of love. At the very least, my personal relationships could use some improvement. The kriya that we will be doing over the next 40 days helps to attract love, build positive relationships, and enhance sleep.
TO BEGIN: Sit in easy pose with your legs, rub your hands together. Press your thumbs against your sternum holding your hands in prayer pose. Roll your eyes in and up towards your third-eye. If you are unable to sit in "easy pose," you may sit on a sturdy chair and cross your feet underneath your chair.
On two breaths, chant the opening mantra ONG NA MA GURU DEV NAMO which means I bow to the infinite wisdom within. Do this 3 times. For the proper cadence and pronunciation, listen here. If you like what you hear, you can purchase my mantra music on Bandcamp.
MUDRA: Place your hands on your lap in Buddha Mudra with the right hand sitting in your left with your thumbs touching.
FOCUS: Eyes are slightly open and the focus is on the tip of the nose.
BREATH: Inhaling in four equal parts while mentally project Sa-Ta-Na-Ma. Hold the breath and mentally project Sa-Ta-Na-Ma four more times. Then exhale in two parts, mentally projecting WAHE on the first wave and GURU on the second.
MANTRA: Sa-Ta-Na-Ma Wahe Guru
Sa Ta Na Ma mantra is used to increase intuition, balance the hemispheres of the brain, and create a destiny for someone when there is none.
Wahe Guru is a mantra of the infinity of ecstasy and dwelling in the Divine. It is the Infinite teacher of the soul.
These mantras together
SA=Infinity, cosmos, beginning.TA=Life, existence.NA=Death.MA=Rebirth. WAHE=the indescribable joy of…GURU=going from darkness to light.
TIME: 15 Minutes.
NOTES ON THIS KRIYA:
The best time to practice this kriya is every night before bed. If it is practiced regularly, sleep will be deep and relaxed and the nerves will regenerate. After a few months, the rhythm of your breath as you sleep will be subconsciously regulated in the same rhythm! You will think better, work better, share better, love better and fight better. This rhythmic mantra will eventually progress so that even in daily activities you will automatically hear the mantra and take on the breath rhythm.
Mystically, the effect is understood in numerology. The number 11 is the number of Infinity in the world of material and the conqueror of the physical realm. The number 22 is the Infinite number of longing and mastery over the mental realm. The breath is regulated in 22 beats and gives the mind the power to stretch to the Infinite.
There cannot be enough praise of this meditation and its growth promoting effect on the personality. It gives radiance and the radiance gives patience which is the first condition of real Love. In Love you give without attention to all the mistakes of another as the sun gives light and warmth to all people. The incorporation of this practical universality in the personality comes with the disciplined practice of Shabd Kriya.
TO FINISH: Repeat the Warrior Healer's Affirmations
TO CLOSE: Rub your hands together and bring them to prayer pose, palms touching thumbs pressed against your sternum. Chant Long Sat Nam on one breath. Repeat this for a total of three times. Bring your hands to your forehead and bow. This seals the work in your frontal lobe.
So there it is! May we radiate Divinity and attract the same vibration: a pure, worthy, sincere and sustainable Love that only god/good will emerge from. Amin.
