MEDITATION TO RELEASE COLD DEPRESSION
Cold depression, which includes apathy, low energy, situations and people blocking our path and development, our old destructive habits, and so on are in our face right now as we move closer and closer to embodying the energies of the Aquarian Age. Here is a wonderful meditation from Yogi Bhajan to clear that!
First listen to Hari Bhajan Khalsa, our Kundalini Yoga teacher clearly explain it all. Then you can print out the instructions and do it for yourself. And you can read more information about this Cold Depression in a fine article by Shanti Shanti Kaur, our esteemed yogi psychologist at http://www.grdcenter.org/articles/cold-depression.php
Don't feel as though you are alone. We are all together in this transformation, but each of us needs to do our own work! Do it and you will discover your greatness!!
Meditation for Release of Cold Depression
Posture: Sit in easy pose with a straight spine. Interlace your fingers so that the finger tips press into the cavities between the fingers on the back of each hand. The index fingers are straight up, pressed together along their length. Thumbs cross each other comfortably. Hands are held at chest level.
Focus: Eyes are open, focused at the tip of the nose.
Mantra: Chant Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Jio* from your navel point, creating a mental focus in this way. At the sound of Wha focus at the navel point; Hey focus at the chest; Gu (as in "good") - roo (as in "true") focus at the lips. Follow the same sequence and rhythm for Wahe Jio ("ji" as in "gee;" "o" as in "go").
Time: Continue for 3 minutes building up to 31 minutes.
End: Inhale and hold. Listen to the sound of the mantra. Exhale. Inhale, hold and give back all the cold depression to God. Exhale. Inhale, hold, and feel the preciousness of life. Let it go through your exhalation. Relax.
