How to do this meditation
Start by sitting in Easy Pose or any position that feels comfortable to you. Your back should be as straight as possible. When you are ready, apply a light Neck Lock.
Next up, you should raise your hands so that they are in front of your face. Your hands should be between six and eight inches from you.
Keep your palms flat and turn them to face each other while your fingers point straight upward. You also should have between six and eight inches between your hands.
Ensure that your elbows are relaxed downward. You need to release any tension you are holding on to within your arms and back.
In one fast and strong movement, bring your hands apart. Your palms should be roughly 36 inches away from each other. Move them fast and then stop suddenly.
Next, move your hands back to the original position. Once again, you want to use as much force as possible. When your palms are between six and eight inches apart, stop immediately. Repeat this with a high level of power so that your head and chest move too.
When you are engaging in this meditation, you should use the Tantric Har recording. Naturally follow the rhythm of the soundtrack as you move each of your hands. You don’t need to chant along with the rhythm, Simply tune in and allow it to guide you.
Whenever you hear the Har sound, stretch your arms and allow the force to take control. You may find that this movement reverberates through your chest and entire body.
Continue for between three and 11 minutes. If you are new to the realms of meditation, you may choose to start with a short session. You will be able to work your way upward.
Once you are ready to bring the session to a close, breathe in and hold your breath. For the following 15 seconds, you should continue with the meditation movement.
Next, breathe out. Then breathe in as deeply as possible and continue for 10 seconds. Breathe out and then breathe in one more time. Hold your breath for around five seconds. Finally, you should relax and release all of the tension from your body.
This movement meditation is easy to learn. No matter where you are in your Kundalini Yoga journey, you should be able to use it in your practice. Now that you know about it, you can use it to effortlessly unblock your heart chakra today.
