How to do this Meditation
Ready to try the self-authority meditation now? If you’re looking for a confidence boost, this quick meditation session is the solution you need. Here’s what you need to know:
Start by sitting in Easy Pose, or choose any position that feels comfortable to you. Apply a light jalandhara bandha.
While you are meditating, you should aim to keep your back and torso straight. You may find that your body naturally leans forward or backward. If that happens, simply adjust.
Before you get started, bring your hands together at the front of your body. Ensure that they are level with the Heart Center. Your fingers should cover your thumbs while you make fists. Try to bring the tips of your thumbs to the base of your little fingers.
Next up, place the fits together and the knuckles. The base of your palms need to be close together when you are adopting this position while the back of your palms face away.
Your eye focus should be on the tip of your nose. When you are practicing this meditation, ensure that you are looking directly at this area.
You don’t need a mantra for this Kundalini Yoga meditation. Instead, you should focus your energy on getting the breathwork right.
Follow this pattern: Breathe in deeply through your nose. Breathe out completely through your mouth. (Your lips should be pursed at this point.) Next, breathe in through the mouth and then breathe out through the nose. Continue following this pattern as you meditate.
This meditation should last between 22 and 31 minutes. The choice is yours. You may want to start with a short session the first time you do it and work your way up.
When you’re ready to finish the meditation session, breathe in and hold your breath. Draw your hands up over your head and stretch. Breathe out and hold the stretch for two more breaths. Finally, relax your muscles completely.
Whenever you’re looking for a boost, it’s worth trying the self-authority meditation. Now that you understand how this session works, you can use it at any time, in any place.
