Kundalini Meditation Techniques

By  | 

Kundalini is a form of yoga based on 1935 treatise by Sivananda Saraswati. It creates awareness through its meditation. It delivers you an experience of high consciousness, it leads you to see into another side of your soul which is spiritual and has no limitations or discriminations, and this also makes it universal. Like all forms of meditation it also helps you to build concentration, awareness and compassion towards life and people around. This meditation is done by activating a star circling the Kundalini energy and then meditating with the Shambhavi Mudra on the light within us. Sitting in the Shambhavi meditation, light flows into us all the more.

Step by Step Instructions to do Kundalini Meditation:

Step 1: You have to visualize a bright star. Imagine that earth in beneath you and there is a circle with a star in the globe. Use the word ‘earth’ as mantra and circle as long with your star is in the earth. There will come a time when you will visualize the entire earth full of light. Rub your feet on the ground.

Step 2: Now look at the beautiful sun in the sky. The rays are falling on your and you are obtaining its energy. Fill your entire body with the light of the rays, this would open your mind and you will feel all the more relaxed. You need to chant the mantra ‘Sun’ and gradually move your feet and toes.

Step 3: Go round with the star and let it go around your entire body. Chant the mantra ‘body’ and this would help you reduce all your worries and anxieties. Cover yourself with light and massage your body to give it a healing touch.

Step 4: Circle with the star in your body and let it clean all the areas of body in a sequence. Let the tensions, anxieties, worries wash away as you chant the mantra of ‘light’. Circle with the star on your head, chest, abdomen, legs and feet and then massage the body parts accordingly.

Step 5: Put on hand on to yourself and bless yourself saying ‘I send light to (name)’. Wish for happiness and joy for everybody, wish for the world to be healthy and happy.

Step 6: Put your hands on your stomach and tense the muscles in the pelvis, abdomen and chest. Keep the tension up for a while and then relax, do it again and then breathe deeply several times from the stomach. While you inhale think of the word OM and while you exhale say ‘Shanti’. This mantra would draw you towards inner peace and your thoughts would calm down.

Step 7: Shambhavi is a mudra of Lord Shiva which is the main posture for meditation. By circling the star your energy has turned inward. Your back is straight, head upright and your stomach is relaxed. Now you can slightly open your eyes and focus on the light or chakra which is the Kundalini channel in the middle of your body. The energy of the eyes flows in you and stabilizes your meditation. It stops your diverted thought and lets you concentrate only on the Kundalini channel. To retrieve back you need to be slow because you are apparently coming back from another world. Meditate quietly and come back to your daily life.
