Dear Students and Friends,
In life we often have to learn to balance our energies. This helps us to get through daily tasks and to achieve our goals. Today we will talk a little about how to do this.The channels through which Prana (life force) flow are called “nadis”. Your body has 72,000 “nadis”. Kudalini energy lies dormant at the base of the spine-sushumna. Kudalini will not rise unless the two energies prana and apana, positive and negative are balanced at the base of the chakra. Prana travels downward and apana travels upwards meeting at the solar plexus activating the sushumna which stimulates Kundalini.
The 3 main nadis are:
Ida nadi (left of the spinal column)-Lunar energy-eliminates waste
Pingala nadi (right of the spinal column)-Prana energy and heat
Sushumna nadi-(center)-Primary channel for Kundalini
Earlier on we had a lesson in the “Muladhara” chakra -root chakra. In this practice today we learn “Rock Pose” or “Root Rock”
1) Sit on your heels, spine straight, relax your hands in your lap or on your upper thighs
2) Breath long deep inhalations and exhalations through your nostrils
The most powerful way to activate the nadis are through sound-mantra is perfect as we have vibration.
To balance energy flow and raise Kundalini we sit in root lock, practice breath control and mental focus.
Our energies meet at the base chakra and stimulate Kundalini
Please practice this following meditation for the next 11 days and you will begin to experience awakening.
