How to do this Kriya
This transformative kriya is broken up into five parts, with two minute periods of rest between sections. When you are ready to begin, let’s get started.
Laya Yoga for Foolishness: 5 minutes
Start in a seated position such as Easy Pose with your eyes closed. Repeat the words “please, speak to me” and meditate on them. Fill the words with meaning from deep within, allowing yourself to be honest and powerful.
The purpose of this exercise is to banish foolishness and open up the heart to the wisdom and positivity of the next exercises.
Laya Yoga to Become Effective: 2 minutes
Speak the words “I love you but…”. On the “but” press the lips out hard. Repeat this for the full time, listening to yourself as you speak, hearing your words, and feeling their power. Allow questions and answers to flow through your words.
Offering Through Words: 1 and a half minutes
Still seated, hold the middle finger of the left hand in the fist of the right hand, and pull, keeping the hands close to the chest and the elbows out to the side.
Repeat the words “have me” with the power and emphasis on the word “have”, opening the mouth wide to put pressure onto the lower jaw.
Give yourself out into the world with these words. Make the universe an offering, and listen for its response. Give yourself freely and without reservation.
Laya Yoga for God: 31 and a half minutes
Bring the hands flat together in front of the body, crossing the thumbs over into the Prayer Mudra, and close the eyes. Turn the wrists so the fingers point away from the chest, and the heel of the hand sits at the heart. Say the words “thou is my light, thou is my life” for two minutes.
Listening to The Narayan continue the chant in time to the music for a further 15 minutes, allowing the word to become more powerful, directly to God.
After the time has elapsed, bring the hands to the Gyan Mudra and raise the arms to 60 degrees, whispering the words “make it as loud as the cobra’s kiss”. Stay strong and firm in this position for six minutes.
Now you will meditate down through the chakras, placing focus on each chakra starting at the crown of the head. Place the hands there for 30 seconds and inhale deeply, then exhale and move on to the next chakra point.
Once you reach the base chakra, start to meditate up the spine. Very slowly curl and uncurl the spine, feeling the movement travel up its length.
Free Dance – 9 minutes
Round off this kriya by playing Walking Up The Mountain, while moving freely and creatively.
Our personality requires tending loving care sometimes, just in the same way that our body does. Try this kriya to redefine your personality through your spiritual connection.
