Opening to Self Love and Remembrance
All Kundalini Yoga practises begin with the opening mantra:
Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo - which we chant three times (I call upon Divine Wisdom)
And ends with Sat Nam (Truth is My Identity) chanted three times.
1. Sit in easy pose with a straight spine and hold your right palm six to nine inches above the top of your head. The right palm faces down, blessing you. This self blessing corrects the aura. The left elbow is bent with the upper arm near the rib cage. The forearm and hand point upward. The left palm faces forward and blesses the world. The eyes are closed and focus at the lunar center in the middle of the chin. Breath long, slow and deep with a feeling of self affection. Try to breath only one breath per minute- Inhale 20 seconds- Hold 20 seconds- Exhale 20 seconds. Continue for 11 minutes. Inhale deeply and move slowly and directly into position for exercise two.
2. Extend your arms straight out in front, parallel to the ground, palms facing down. Stretch out to your maximum. The eyes are focused at the lunar center in the middle of the chin and the breath is long, slow, and deep. 3 Minutes. Inhale deeply and move slowly and directly into position for exercise three.
3. Stretch your arms straight up with the palms facing forward. There is no bend in the elbows. The eyes are focused at the lunar center and the breath continues to be long, slow and deep. 3 Minutes. To finish; Inhale,hold your breath for 10 seconds while you stretch your arms upward (try to stretch so much that your buttocks are lifted) and tighten all the muscles of your body. Exhale. Repeat this breath two more times.
Exercise one is called Reverse Adi Shakti Kriya. Here you are mentally and hypnotically blessing yourself. This self-blessing affects and corrects the magnetic field. Doing this exercise will hurt if you are an angry person. Self help is very difficult for those who are angry. After doing this exercise for half an hour your muscles will start hurting if your diet is improper. The taste in your mouth will change if you are breathing correctly.
Exercise two will benefit everything between the neck and the navel. It will give strength to the heart and open up the heart center.
