breath

“When the breath of life becomes short, you become short tempered. When the breath of life becomes long and deep, you understand who you are."

The slogan of Age of Aquarius. “I know, let me help take you there.”
Yogi Bhajan

Meditation

What is Meditation? Meditation is house cleaning for your mind. Everything that you think or do is recorded by your mind. If you don't clean your "house" it will become a mess. When you meditate, the garbage of the subconscious releases. Meditation is a process to clean out the mental distortions, memories, fears, stress, confusion, emotional scars and neuroses that keep us from being who we really want to be. The benefits of meditation are vast but one has to experience it and practice to realize them.Many people are discouraged from meditating because of a misconception that one can simply sit down and instantly quiet the mind for meditation. The mind generates one thousand thoughts per wink of the eye and when we sit to meditate, we become acutely aware of these thoughts. That is why some meditations utilize mantras and specific breathing patterns to focus the mind. You might daydream or get distracted. Just keep going back to the mantra, the breath and the meditation. You may feel a bit uncomfortable during meditation but you will feel much better after. If "issues" come up, it means that the process is working. Don't expect to sit in bliss every time! When thoughts come up, don't reflect or act on them. Just allow them, giving them space to release... You may even become negative or emotional.
The three languages of consciousness are:
· human - things, the world; normal or loud voice
· lovers - longing to belong; strong whisper
· divine - infinity; mentally or silently
Hypothalamus and Meridian Points
The whole tongue stimulates the meridian points. The naad meridian points are connected with the hypothalamus above them, and with both sides of the brain. The meridian points, which come in pairs along the teeth and the inner upper palate, relate to one side or the other of the hypothalamus.
The rotation of the tongue on the points stimulates certain parts of the hypothalamus, which in turn stimulates the pituitary and pineal glands. The secretion of the pituitary gland and the subsequent radiation of the pineal gland causes a change in the chemical composition of the brain, resulting in a more balance state of mind. Pineal and pituitary glands, the hypothalamus has several other important functions, including the following:
Body temperature regulation, Regulation of body fluid,
Blood sugar metabolism, Fat metabolism and storage,
Gastrointestinal control, Emotional expression.
Meditation: times and effects
3 minutes, you can affect your circulation and blood stability
11 min. the pituitary and nerves start to learn and change
22 min. your three minds start to work together so your mental integration changes
31 min. affects your whole mind, your aura and your body’s internal elements
62 min. your subconscious and your positive projection are integrated.
There are also specific periods of time to break old habits and develop new ones. Often a student of Kundalini Yoga chooses a specific kriya/meditation to affect a desired change and then practices the kriya/meditation for a specific number of days.

40 Days To change/break a habit.
90 Days To confirm the habit.
120 Days The new habit is who you are.
1000 Days You have mastered the new habit.
