Let’s face it. We all live super busy and hectic lives. We are going here there and everywhere. Many of us juggle work, home, children, partners, finances, and everything else in between. How do we all get everything done AND keep our sanity? Simple, Kundalini Meditation, we start the day balanced, focused, and energized. Consider that how we start the day is how the day goes. Simply put, if you start the day stressed, disorganized, and short of breath, consider that is how the day will go. Alternately, if we start the day balanced, relaxed, and focused, we can handle anything that life is throwing at us.
Kundalini Meditation is a tool to help us set the tone for the day. It can help you find yourself and connect with the creator before we launch into a day of business. Even if you have 5 mins a day or have to sneak into the bathroom away from kids, you can create a space of meditation.
Also, recognize there is no perfect kundalini meditation practice. Some days, I feel like I am levitating from my spiritual progress, while other days, I feel like I am just getting by. Some days, my mind is always reminding me of my grocery list while other days, I feel as though I leave my body entirely. The point is that meditation is messy. It is not easy, not clean, and it is going to be a struggle, so expect it. There will be a lot of resistance that the ego presents to throw you off track, your tired, you don’t have time, etc. The ego wants to hold on to the old and the known. Meditation clears out the subconscious mind and clears out the aura of any junk collected in it. It also settles the mind and helps you to become more of an observer of your life instead of a reactor, but it takes consistent practice.
Yogi Bhajan, the Founder of American Kundalini Meditation and yoga practice, said that “the greatest art is to sit, and wait, and let it come.” Yogic science states that there are specific times for certain desired effects in meditation.
- 3 minutes affects the blood and electromagnetic field
- 11 minutes changes the glandular system and the nerves
- 22 minutes balances and coordinates the three minds (positive, negative, and neutral)
- 31 minutes affects all the cells and rhythms of the body and all layers of the mind’s projection
- 62 minutes changes the gray matter of the brain, integrating the subconscious into the outer projection.
- 2.5 hours holds a new pattern int he subconscious mind by surrounding the universal mind
Committing to a personal practice of kundalini meditation is a process of transformation, especially when practiced as a daily discipline.
- 40 days change a habit
- 90 days confirms the habit
- 120 days creates YOU as a new habit
- 1,000 days Masters a new habit
I find beginning low and slow until you gain a taste for it is essential. After a while, you will rave the meditation process, but in the beginning, it can be arduous and difficult, especially when you are retraining your mind. I often enjoy Kundalini meditations, partly because I am a Kundalini teacher, but partly because I enjoy adding purpose to my meditations rather than just sitting quietly. I have done meditations on reactivity, anger, vision, prosperity, and more.
