Reading Time: 12 minutes
Do you ever feel as though you are holding so much in your mind that any new information received will push some vital information out the other side?
This is not uncommon, especially in this Aquarian Age. There are many reasons that people can reach this mental state, but commonly it is due to a lack of “down time,” and trying to juggle too many things.
When we take down time we actually allow the brain time to start its filing process. This allows it to start allocating recollections to different “memory banks,” rearranging short-term memories that we need quick access to into medium and long-term memories.
When we fail to find this time to rest, our brain becomes full of information that has been allocated to the short term, and when that reaches capacity we struggle to concentrate, and often find that we have a “brain fog”, and our productivity and creativity hits rock bottom.
In this guide we will explore a meditation routine that allows our brain to process these memories and brings mental purity.

How to do this Meditation
This meditation is simple and effective but, even better, it can take as much or as little time as you desire. Its adaptability is perfect for those of us who are always on the move, but it stands to reason that the longer you spend on it, the more effective it becomes.
Begin in a comfortable position, either on the floor, a mat, or in a chair. Men should rest their right hand in their left hand, with both palms facing upwards. Women should do the opposite.
The sides of the hands should be placed at the bottom of the ribcage, thumbs pointing away from the body, with the arms resting down the sides of the body.
Eyes should be almost completely closed, around 9/10th.
Begin to chant Gobinda Gobinda Hari Hari. Chant this continuously, allowing the breath to find its own consistent rhythm. Notice if you start to speed up or slow down, and bring it back to the natural rhythm.
The chant should be in monotone, without any changes in inflection. The syllable Go should be made by puckering the lips, and the binda should be projected outward, with the tongue following the hit the front teeth. As you chant Hari the mouth should curl up into a smile.
This meditation can take as much or as little time as you like or can fit into your day. Make sure as you come to finish to spend a few minutes breathing deeply, becoming aware of the mental purity that has come about through your efforts.
This meditation is perfect for fitting in around a busy schedule, and it has a profound impact. If you are feeling a bit frazzled, run down, or struggle to find the mental space to focus and be productive, slip this meditation into your day and feel the rewards.
