How to do this Meditation
Ready to give this meditation a whirl? Before you get started, find a space in your home where you will not be disturbed. When you are ready, follow these simple steps:
Exercise 1: O Breath
Start by sitting in Easy Pose — or any position that suits you — and keep your back straight. Bring your right hand up to the base of your neck.
Bring the pads of your thumbs and fingers to the collarbone and gently press there. This area is known as the reflex point for the thymus gland.
Drop your left hand down to your knee. Put your fingers in the bend of the knee so that your hand is touching your thigh.
Turn your mouth into an “O” shape and start breathing using the full force of your cheeks. You should inhale and exhale two times per second. Imagine you are blowing bubbles.
Continue with the above exercise for 5 minutes in total.
Exercise 2: Normal Breath
Continue with your meditation and allow your eyes to close naturally. When they do so, you can start to imagine the bubbles that you are making with your breath.
Allow your head, neck, and shoulder area to relax — release any tension that you have. As you do this, you should keep your hands in the same position. There should be zero tension in any of your body above the diaphragm.
Allow your breath to be normal and continue breathing for 2 minutes.
Exercise 3: Head and shoulder drop
Keep your hands in the same place as they were during the first exercise but allow your head and shoulders to drop.
Ensure that your eyes are still completely closed and then continue to imagine the bubbles moving while you breathe normally. Continue for 2 minutes.
Breathe in deeply and then breathe out. Hold your breath out for 30 seconds and then relax your body completely. Let go of your tension once and for all.
The managed energy meditation is available to anyone on the Kundalini Yoga journey. No matter where you are in your pathway, you can tap into this technology and start using it for yourself. Now that you know how it’s done, why not add it to your everyday routine?
