Since we are now in the Age of Aquarius, it has never been more important than ever to slow down and recharge. To help us along the way, Yogi Bhajan previously introduced the idea of the Self-Sensory System and how we can connect to it. Naturally, one of the most powerful ways to start to enter this system is to meditate on a regular basis.
The modern-day world is extremely fast-paced, which means that many of us respond automatically to it. You may not even notice that you’re doing this but it happens to all of us. Should you have many things to do, for example, you may not have the chance to stop and consider how you are feeling. It’s time to get back in touch with your senses.
Fortunately, the following Kundalini Yoga meditation will help you do just that. When you have some time to yourself, engaging in this practice will enable you to unlock your inner calm and find your strength. Put simply, it’s worth your time and effort.

How to do This Meditation
“Sensory man is a positive man. Wherever he lives, he has everything positive around him.”
– Yogi Bhajan
Ready to get started and connect with the Self Sensory System? This quick meditation is simple to learn and will help you along the way. The whole thing takes 31 minutes to complete. That means you should have no problem fitting it in your busy schedule.
Begin by sitting in Easy Pose, or whatever position feels comfortable for you. If possible, you should keep your spine straight throughout the meditation.
With your arms parallel to the floor and palms facing down, make a triangle by crossing your right hand over the left. Keep your hands at heart level.
Move your eyes to be looking at the tip of your nose. They should be in this position throughout the quick meditation session.
Start by making an ‘O’ shape with your mouth. Bring the air in deeply through this shape as you inhale. You should feel your chest fill up completely.
Next, exhale through your nostrils. Your breath should be slow and steady when breathing out. Continue. Actively pay attention to your breathing as you inhale and exhale.
When you are engaging in this quick meditation to connect with the sensory self system, your focus is important. Take a moment to consider your courage, achievements, and strength. You will begin to feel bolder as you do this.
Keep engaging in this meditation for 31 minutes.
When it is time to finish, breathe in deeply, and hold your breath. Next, breathe out. Do this twice more.
When you finally exhale, tighten every part of your body. Release and relax.
