Each of us wears a mask—the face that we project to the rest of the world. This starts as early as childhood. We quickly learn that, so that we can protect ourselves, we must have a guard that shields our true self.
However, to live in dharma and be truly happy, we have to shatter the mask and be our authentic selves. It’s not an easy step to take, but when you do it, it will feel like a huge weight has been lifted.
While there are many ways that you can break down this barrier, one piece of technology can help. The true identity meditation allows you to unleash your inner self and become at one with it.
Benefits of this Meditation
- Break the mask you show to the outer world
- Unleash your inner self and true identity
- Open up the heart center and let energy flow
- Rid yourself of pain and fear of the future
- Invoke the presence of your higher transcendental self
How to do this Meditation
When you are ready to get started with the true identity meditation, find a place that is quiet and comfortable. Next, follow these steps to enter a self-hypnotic state of meditation.
Start by sitting in Easy Pose, or any position that feels comfortable to you. Keep your spine as straight as possible throughout this true identity meditation.
Place the bottom part of your palms together directly in front of your heart center. Adopt the open lotus position.
Bring the sides of your thumb tips together along with all the sides of your fingers. Allow all of your fingers to be open—away from one another—but keep them as relaxed as you can.
Your fingers should point upward during this Kundalini Yoga meditation, as though they were petals on a flower.
While you are meditating, adopt a 1/10th open eye position. (Of course, if you find this comfortable, you can close your eyes completely or do whatever feels right to you.)
First of all, use the segmented breathwork to prepare yourself. Breathe in one-third of the way, hold for 15 seconds and then breathe in another third. Hold this for a further 15 seconds.
Next, breathe all the way in and then hold for a final 15 seconds, before breathing out. You should continue with this breathwork for 15 minutes before moving on to the next part.
When you have completed your breathwork, the next stage is to chant the mantra for 11 minutes. The mantra is ‘Har Jee Har Har Har Har Har Jee’ and you should say it aloud in a rhythmic manner.
The aim is to keep a beat as you chant. Keep going at a pace that feels right for you.
When you have completed the mantra section of this Kundalini Yoga meditation. Return to the breathwork segmentation. Follow the same steps again but only continue for five minutes this time.
This meditation takes a total of 31 minutes. When you are finished, take a moment to relax and come around.
