Kundalini Yoga – Meditation – Wellness
If you can hack the nervous system, then you can hack the body.
What I celebrate each time I come to my cushion is the chance to be with my breath. Through conscious, controlled breathing we can activate the parts of our nervous system that help us repair, heal, and grow. If you body is over taxed due to regularly being on high alert then we might find difficulties along the journey. Having a regular practice that aids in bringing our system back to ease has many mental, physical and spiritual benefits. This week we look toward our infinite power within.
This meditation has a few parts that aren’t too complex. This practice involves an “O” mouth breath, like you’re drinking through a straw and we will have one hand on our heart, the other cupped out in front of us. The hand on the heart invites us back home to the body, becoming deeply aware of the rise and fall of our chest and beat of our heart. The other hand cupped out in front of us receiving that flow of life energy graciously. With each breath feel yourself drinking in and receiving energy all around you merging with your own internal battery of infinite energy.
