- Resparks the connection with your partner
How to do this Meditation
Want to try the Naad meditation with your partner? Before you get started, find a space where you can be alone together. You can lay down mats and light some incense.
Exercise 1: Meditate with your Hands
Start by sitting in Easy Pose, or whichever position is comfortable for you.
Either keep your eyes closed at the 1/10th open position or close them completely.
Lift your hands so that they are next to your shoulders. Make sure that the palms are facing forward with your fingers pointing upward.
Adopt the Gyan Mudra so that the thumbs touch the tips of your index fingers. Move both hands forward and backward as though you are throwing some darts.
Move the hands forward between 12 and 18 inches. As you do so, chant the following mantra: “Wa Wa He He Wa Wa He He Wa Wa He He Guru.”
You should have a monotone approach to this mantra. As you utter each syllable, make sure that you are focussing on the sound. It should punch through the air.
Continue with this meditation practice for 31 minutes.
When you are ready to bring this meditation exercise to a close, breathe in deeply and hold your breath. Finally, you may relax.
Exercise 2: Communicate with your Partner
Once you have completed the first exercise, you should turn to your partner. You will both be in a calm and relaxed headspace at this point. Ask them the simple question: “How do I create trust and distrust in my relationships with my communication?”
The two of you can meditate on the answer to this question for three minutes.
Exercise 3: Meditate
Sit with your back straight and bring your hands above your head. Interlock your fingers and make sure that there is a gentle level of pressure here.
When you are ready to do so, twist smoothly to the side. Breathe in as you move to the left, and then breathe out as you move right. Continue for three minutes.
To complete the meditation, breathe in when you are in the central position. Hold your breath and focus your attention on the crown of your head. Then, relax completely.
The naad meditation helps you develop a level of trust between you and your partner. If this has been lacking in recent months, taking the time to do this practice can help you.
