Meditation to create Self-Love - Yogi Bhajan 4 April, 1994

"Love doesn't rule you. What rules you is fear. Through this kriya, love can be invoked and fear can be reduced."

1. Reverse Adi Shakti Kriya: Sit in easy pose with a straight spine and hold your right palm 6-9 inches above the top center of your head, palm down, blessing you. This self-blessing corrects your aura. The left elbow is bent with the upper arm near the rib cage. The forearm and hand point upward. Your left palm faces forward and blesses the world. Close your eyes and focus at your lunar center in the middle of your chin. Breath long, slow and deep with a feeling of self-affection. Try to breathe only 1 breath per minute! 11 minutes. To finish: Inhale deeply and slowly and directly move into posture 2. Comments: After 5 minutes, your muscles will start hurting if your diet is improper. If you are breathing correctly, it will change the taste in your mouth. Mentally and hypnotically blessing yourself affects the magnetic field. Doing this exercise will hurt if you are an angry person. "If you cannot bless yourself, no one can bless you."

2. Extend your arms straight out in front, parallel to the ground, palms facing down. Stretch out to your maximum. Focus at the lunar center and breathe long, slow and deep for 3 minutes. Inhale deeply and move slowly and directly into position for posture 3. Comments: This exercise will benefit everything between the neck and navel. It will give strenght to the heart and open your heart center.

3. Stretch your arms straight up with the palms facing forward. There is no bend in the elbows. The eyes are focused at the lunar center. Breathe long, slow and deep for 3 minutes.

To finish: Inhale and hold your breath for 10 seconds while you stretch your arms upward and tighten every muscle of your body. Exhale. Repeat this sequence two more times.

Ishnaan, the Science of Hydrotherapy


I’d like to share the technology and science of a type of massage with you. It is called hydrotherapy massage. As I’m sitting before you, my first qualification and field of expertise is in hydrotherapy. You may not have known that, and there is no one else with this qualification in the whole world. I carry the lineage of those who now are very unknown, but who once were worshipped. They worked on the bones, adjusted the body and did massage to recreate healthy organs.

Since ancient times, people have prayed for the blessing of Ishnaan. What is Ishnaan? Ishnaan is the total sum of hydrotherapy. The word is Ishnaan. We don’t say we’ll take a bath; we never say “bath.” Ishnaan is when the body by its own virtue creates the temperature that it can beat off the coldness of the water. Ishnaan is not just wetting your body. There is a whole respect to it. There is whole grace to it.

The power of water is sixty percent of the power of the human. In hydrotherapy we believe that the sixty percent water in the body can be totally exchanged in sixty minutes with outside water. We do ice cold water massage and not only do we open up the capillaries, but then when they close down again, that is, return to normal, that blood goes back to the organs. The heart, kidneys, and lungs, liver-each organ has its own blood supply. In this way the organs get their flushing. When the organs get a flushing, then immediately the glands have to change their secretion. It is a low. And when the glands change, the guardians of the health and life change, youth returns. What is youth? Young glands. Young glands are called youth. If your glandular system secretes correctly the blood chemistry is a young chemistry, and the glands can be made to do it. All this neurosis and angriness will all be over…

This science of hydrotherapy is very precise and sophisticated, and very simple. If you take a cold shower and let it fall just below the lower lip for ten or fifteen minutes, you will be bright and your mind will be very clear. If you put the water between the eyebrows and the upper lip you will be very energetic. And if you put the water on the forehead, you will be so sleepy that you can’t match it. If you massage the upper arm under very cold shower from your elbow to just below your shoulder on your upper arm, you are totally curing your stomach. From your elbow to about two inches above your wrist corresponds to your digestive tract. Two inches above the wrist to start of the wrist corresponds to your heart. The wrist corresponds to your liver and the finger tips correspond to your brain.

Then if you put the water on your neck in the front and let the water runs down your entire body and hands, you will totally change all your cells. And if you let the water hit your chest and go all the way down to your genitals and you stay under it for a while, you are totally changing the chemistry of the blood from unhealthy to healthy. If you let the water hit your feet and massage the right foot with the left foot, and the left foot with the right foot, you are actually massaging your entire body. Stand before a cold shower and massage your feet and your calves by yourself. Use your feet to massage don’t use your hands. Then stand away from the water and using both hands, massage your entire body and let the body get hot. Then take a cold shower again and massage your body again. Do that for about twelve to fifteen minutes. You should have a friend handy to pull you out. You will be in a totally different space.
Your body will be totally rebuilt. Each organ will be rebuilt. How? When you take a cold shower, your blood rushes out to meet the challenge. This means all the capillaries open up and all the capillaries open up and all deposits have to go. Everything is cleaned; it is a very cleansing process. During hydrotherapy, the body is challenged by the cold water and by massaging the body, it can meet this challenge and not feel cold.

Do you understand this? When you are under the cold shower, your body will feel the cold, right? But when the blood and the capillaries are totally opened up to the maximum, the body will not feel cold. I repeat it will not feel cold. And if you bring your body to that temperature where it can meet the cold by its own circulatory power, then all you have to do is come out and totally towel yourself, put on warm clothes, and put a blanket around you. Or if it is hot weather like it is here, use a big bath towel.

Bath towels are for the hydro therapists, not for you. It’s not a fashion. You don’t eve know how to use them. They are like blankets. Roll yourself up in one. Then your body will become wild hot. All the blood that is in the capillaries and in circulation will go back to the organs: the kidneys, the liver, the spleen, the lungs-because each part of your body lives on its own blood supply which is regulated by the beat of the heart. So the organs will get a rich supply of blood like a crop getting a beautiful rain, and then the crop grows up. In exactly the same way, this is how you can balance your health.

They didn’t know how to make a shower when they first did hydrotherapy. You are very lucky you have modern showers. In ancient times there was nothing. They had to fill a tub that was about thirty to forty feet above the ground. It was huge and men had to fill it with water. It required about five hundred men to create enough water pressure for the hydrotherapy. When the machine age came they used booster pump to create that effect . Have you ever taken a bath under a booster shower it’s fun. They take a pump that has a booster which comes through the shower head. It is so powerful, so wonderful; it’s marvelous. We used to have handle and a pipe and the pipe was flexible. For somebody who lay down under it, it had a tremendously soothing effect.

Now we have showers in every house, but the art of hydrotherapy is lost. Now a little pill can help you, and you can be on your own again. That is fine, but the difference between people today and people then is that today people want to be healthy, but they are not afraid of being sick. In those days, people were afraid of being sick; they never wanted to be unhealthy. That is how times have changed for us; that’s what we are. Allopathic medicine is very effective. The chemical goes right in, right to the spot and it takes care of you. But the unfortunate part of it is that it has its side effects.

Body cells recuperate themselves in seventy-two hours. Sometimes they get delayed. Recuperation becomes slower as you become older; it’s the time phase. But in hydrotherapy we believe youth is permanent, and youth is permanent not because it’s God’s gift. Youth is permanent because we know how to be young. It’s a challenge but people who have done hydrotherapy have seen that they have remained young by their own virtue. I myself have seen my teacher, Sant Hazara Singh, remain ageless, so long as he did it.

By doing any exercise for hours, you cannot stimulate your cell psyche to the extent that you can with cold water. And the procedure is very simple. Take your hands, let the cold water fall, and rub them to the extent that they become hot under the ice cold water. And so with every part of the body; let it go, let it be, and stimulate yourself. And this stimulation may look to you like a fanatic, painful attitude, but that’s what it is all about. Some people do deep muscle massage, some people go to spas, and others do this or that. There are one million methods and nothing even comes close to this one. There’s nothing like standing under ice cold water and making your body become hot. The word is “hot.” Normally, in this therapy, we say to “heat yourself,”-heat your neck, heat your shoulders, heat your elbows. Can you believe a guy standing under a shower doing this for two hours? But that’s how they do it. And everywhere that the cold water hits, the blood will come. Everywhere you massage, rebuilding will occur and the psyche of each cell of the body will be reconstructed.

Sometimes in your own life, you do not value your life. And then you cannot value it, because you are old. So play no such games with yourself; death will come, don’t bother. Richness will come, don’t bother. Poverty will come, no bother. Disease will come, no bother. Bother for nothing. But, if you have a strong-built mind, body and soul, everything will come. All adversity will come, but it won’t touch you, because nobody wants to pick a fight with a powerful man. Therefore, the saying in hydrotherapy is, “shield yourself.” In hydrotherapy, they think that water is fatherly shield, paanee pitaa, and that anybody who can produce this shield that conquers the coldness of the water can conquer death. That’s what hydrotherapy is based on. It’s a very simple thing. If I with my body can conquer the chilliness of the water, I can take away the chilliness of my life

Mudra


Sat Nam
We have about 4000 nerve endings at the tips of our fingers. That is what makes mudras (yoga for the fingers) so effective, because the nerve endings are connected with organs and can influence them, relax, stimulate or balance them, depending on the individual need.There are more than 100 mudras; we want to introduce you to some of them.Anywhere you go, while on a break, sitting at a red light while in your car, waiting at the checkout, at your office or home, you can recharge your battery. The mudras are easily learned and with a little practice you can do them at any time and place:

Gyan Mudra
This mudra is the one that you will use most often, since it encourages receptivity and calm, helpful attributes in any practice. To form it, press the tip of the thumb together with the tip of the index finger. This stimulates your knowledge and ability. Jupiter, the planet representing expansion, symbolises the energy of the index finger. The thumb represents the individual ego, which is often stuck and resistant. When you apply the energy of expansion to the ego it opens more readily to new knowledge and experience.

If the breathwork or exercise you are doing is particularly powerful or dynamic, you may want to use the active form of the mudra. In this case, curl the index finger and press the pad of the thumb on the fingernail and the area just below it.

Shuni Mudra
This mudra is said to give patience and discernment. The planet associated with the middle finger is Saturn which represents the taskmaster, or the law of karma, and thus, the taking of responsibility and the courage to hold to your duty. To form shuni mudra press the tip of your middle finger on the tip of your thumb.

Surya Mudra
This mudra may also be called "ravi mudra". To form it place the tip of the ring finger on the tip of the thumb. This practice helps to revitalize your energy, increase the strength of your nerves and encourage good health generally. The ring finger has the quality of both the Sun (energy, health, sexuality) and Uranus (nervous strength, intuition and the ability to adapt to change).

Buddhi Mudra
In buddhi mudra the tip of the little finger is pressed to the tip of the thumb. This helps open the capacity to communicate clearly and intuitively. It may also stimulate psychic development. Mercury is the planet associated with the little finger, symbolising quickness and the power of the mind to communicate.

Venus Lock
This is another frequently used mudra. The venus mound is the fleshy area at the base of the thumb. It is associated with the planet Venus, a symbol of sensuality and sexual energy. This mudra channels your sexual energy and promotes glandular balance. It is often used with the hands resting in the lap during meditation to make it easier to focus. To form venus lock hold your hands in front of you with the palms facing each other and interlace the fingers. The left little finger is on the bottom if you are a man. If you are a woman the right little finger is on the bottom. The left (right for women) thumb tip rests on the webbing at the base of the opposite thumb. The right (left for women) thumb tip presses the outer edge of the venus mound on the opposite hand.

Prayer Pose
This mudra is always used to center yourself before beginning a kriya. It is the familiar pose in which the palms are held flat together in the middle of the chest, neutralising the positive (right or male) and the negative (left or female) sides of the body. It is universally used for prayer.

Jupiter Mudra
With the two index fingers together, the power of Jupiter, or good luck and expansion is activated. Together they focus your energy to break through barriers.

Bear Grip
This mudra stimulates the heart and intensifies concentration. Place the left hand in front of the chest with the palm facing out and the thumb down. Bring the right hand in front of the chest with the palm facing the chest and the thumb up. Hook the fingers of both hands together and pull with a moderate pressure.

Buddha Mudra
Another common mudra for meditation is simply resting the hands in the lap, one over the other, with the palms up. Right hand rests on left for men, left on right for women, palms up, thumbs tips touching each other in a receptive gesture.


The hands are both input and output devices for the body/mind. Mudras are techniques for using the hand's input function to deliver a clear, specific message to your mind/body energy system. The hand is not just a convenient pair of pliers. The motions that we make and the postures that we form with our hands resonate deeply throughout our bodies and minds and form patterns that persist in our brains. Our developing nervous systems are imprinted by the vectors and sensations of these first forays into physical space. Our instinct to mould and create our worlds is directly attached to the feeling and energy of our hands. We manipulate our surroundings. I only have to read the words "mould" and "create" for my hands to start heating up. I feel as if I am about to physically shape something with them even if the form I intend is not physical. I shape my ideas, at least in part, with my hands. As evidence of this, notice how our ongoing flow of feeling, moods and ideas is accompanied by a continuous subtle dance of hand gestures in which the hands show forth, play with, and shape the energy we are expressing as eloquently as our words or our facial expressions do. Left to their own devices the hands will move according to their habit and no new patterns will be formed, rather the old ones will be reinforced. When you use a mudra you apply a new pattern from outside your current mindset, and this opens a door for your mind. Each area of the hand reflexes to a different area of the body or the brain. Each area also represents different emotions or behaviours. The intricate web of lines on the palm is an energy map of our consciousness and health. In short, the hands are intimately connected with the nervous system and brain and the way that we hold them and move them sends waves through our bodies and our energy fields. By curling, crossing, stretching, and touching fingers to other fingers and areas we can effectively talk to the body and mind.

(MANTRA FOR THE AQUARIAN AGE) This is a shabd of protection against all negative forces which move against one's walk on the path of destiny, both inner and outer. It cuts like a sword through every opposing vibration, thought, word and action.


SA-TA-NA-MA
(PANJ SHABD)
Saa Taa Naa Maa
Saa = Infinity, totality of the Cosmos
Taa = Life (birth of form from the Infinity)
Naa = death (or transformation)
Maa = Rebirth
Panj means five, and expresses the five primal sounds of the Universe. (SSS. MMM. TTT. NNN and AAA.) It is the atomic or Naad form of the mantra Sat Naam. It is used to increase intuition, balance the hemispheres of the brain and to create a destiny for someone when there was none. This mantra describes the continuous cycle of life and creation.

SAT NAM : is the Seed Mantra or Bij Mantra and it is the most widely used in the practice of Kundalini Yoga. Sat means the Truth; Nam means to call upon, name or identify with. Sat Nam means Truth is my identity and I call upon the eternal Truth that resides in all of us. Chanting this mantra awakens the Soul, and more simply means "really". It is pronounced to rhyme with "But Mom!"

SAT NARAYAN, WHA HE GURU, HARI NARAYAN, SAT NAM : Narayan is the aspect of Infinity that relates to water, and Hari Narayan is Creative sustenance, which makes the one who chants it intuitively clear or healing. Sat Narayan is True Sustainer, Wahe Guru, indescribable Wisdom and Sat Nam, True Identity. This is the ancient Chotay Pad Mantra.

SAT SIRI SIRI AKAL
(MANTRA FOR THE AQUARIAN AGE)
Sat siree, siree akaal, siree akaal, maahaa akaal,
maahaa akaal, sat naam, akaal moorat, wha-hay guroo
Great Truth. Great beyond Death. Great beyond Death.
Geat beyond Death.
Truth is His Name. Deathless Image of God.
Great Beyond Words is this Wisdom.
This mantra captures the frequency of the Aquarian Age as we cross the threshold into it. The mantra helps us to establish ourselves outside the change of time as deathless beings. We are timeless.
Everything we do is from the timeless space of the soul.

Waah yantee kar yantee, jag dut patee
Aadak it whaa-haa, brahmaaday trayshaa guroo
It wha-hay guroo (MANTRA FOR THE AQUARIAN AGE)
Great Macroself. Creative Self.
All that is creative through time, all that is the Great One.
Three aspects of God: Brahma. Vishnu. Mahesh.
That is Wahe Guru.
This mantra is from the teachings of Patanjali. The practice of this mantra is the culmination of hundreds of years of prayer.

WAHE GURU : is the Guru Mantra, the mantra of ecstasy. It is not translatable but chanting it elevates the spirit.

WAHE GURU, WAHE GURU, WAHE GURU, WAHE JEEO : (MANTRA FOR THE AQUARIAN AGE) "The ecstasy of consciousness is my beloved."
Great beyond description is His Infinite Wisdom.
This is the mantra of ecstasy. This mantra means “indescribably great is God’s infinite, ultimate wisdom.” Jio is an affectionate, but still respectful, variation of the word Ji, which means soul. The word Jio sends the message directly to the soul. “O my soul. God is!” This mantra causes a very subtle rub against the center of the upper palate and stimulates the meridian known in the West as the Christ Meridian Point, and in the East as Sattvica Buddha Bindu. The tougue and lips correspond to the Sun and Moon in their movement. Soothe the wounds of life with the infinite bliss this mantra induces.

Wake Up...

Kundalini Yoga Kriyas & Meditations for survival


Sat Nam Ji

I recommend you before to do any kriya and meditation to consult your teacher, or you call me :
0208 800 5145 Siri Atma S. G. Anselmi

Kirtan Kriya


This is an excellent daily practice for couples to remove emotional blocks and balance their energies. It is also done individually when you are working on your own issues. It is the meditation for women to clear out the psychic effects of past relationships.

Sit back to back with your partner, spine straight and aligned with each other, and meditate at Brow Point, chanting the 5 primal sounds of Panj Shabad:

SA TA NA MA
SA: infinity, cosmos, beginning
TA: life, existence
NA: death
MA: rebirth

On SA touch the Jupiter finger to the thumb.
On TA the Saturn finger and thumb
On NA the Sun finger and thumb
On MA the Mercury finger and thumb of each hand, chanting in the “Three Languages of Consciousness” as follows:

For 5 minute, chant in a normal voice (the language o humans) and for the next 5 minutes, whisper (the language of lovers), and for the next 10 minutes, chant silently (the divine language). For the next 5 minutes whispers again, and for the last 5 minutes return to the normal voice.
Meditate on these primal sounds in an L shape: let each SATANAMA enter through the Crow Chakra and project it out to Infinity through the 3rd Eye.
It is important to do this meditation properly, using the L form so that the sound follow the Golden Cord entering at the 10th Gate (top of the head), and projects out trough the 3rd Eye to Infinity. As always, the spine must be straight and the Chin Lock must be applied.

Each time the mudra is closed by joining the thumb with a finger, the ego "seals" the effect of that mudra in the consciousness.
The effects are as follows:
1st finger: Gyan Mudra Knowledge
2nd finger: Shuni Mudra Wisdom, intelligence, patience
3rd finger: Surya Mudra Vitality, energy of life
4th finger: Buddhi Mudra Ability to communicate
This meditation brings a total mental balance to the individual psyche. Vibrating on each fingertip alternates the electrical polarities.
The index and ring fingers are electrically negative, relative to the other fingers. This causes a balance in the electromagnetic projection of the aura.
