Eliminating Thoughts You Dislike
Yogi Bhajan 5/19/75


Tune in.

Sit straight in easy pose (comfortable cross legged position, or shoeless feet flat on the floor if you are sitting in a chair.  Sit with your back straight, with your chin tucked in a little so that your spine is fully straight.)

Make a cup with the hands by putting the right hand over the left.  The fingers will cross each other.  Put this open cup at the level of the heart center.  The eyes look only into the cup.

Begin the pranayam (yogi breathing pattern) by inhaling deeply through the nose.  Exhale through the puckered mouth.  The exhale is as if you spit the air into the palms, but it is a dry. Long spitting motion of the air.

Meditate on the particular thought that you have and which you do not like.  Spit out the thought with the breath.  Inhale the thought you don’t like and exhale it in the breath.

This will activate the 1/3, 2/3 area of the brain.  Please see the green box below for more of an explanation of that.

Continue for 11 minutes, then inhale deeply, exhale, and with the eyes closed, begin to concentrate on the spine.

Slowly draw your concentration down the spine all the way to the bottom.  Feel all your vertebrae, down to the 26th vertebra (S1, at the sacrum—the flat boney area at the bottom of your spine).  Feel you have a spine.  Feel the spine as if you are feeling a stick in your hand.  The more you can feel the entire spine to the base, the more the energy flow and relief will occur.

Man in his essence is with the infinite, unlimited creative power that some people call God.  If man goes within himself and consciously experiences his own beauty, he becomes God.  Destiny is nothing but the outer impression of the inner image a person carries of him/herself.  If s/he knows himself as God, s/he can reunite his/her destiny to his/her highest potential.  When s/he looks to the surface life, s/he sees only the reflection of the inside.

This Kriya alters the destiny with the technology to rid the inside image of negative thoughts that are persistent.  Once these thoughts are eliminated, the positive thought can manifest without interference.


1/3, 2/3 Area of the Brain

From: Kundalini Meditation Manual for Intermediate Students, page 28 (currently out of print).

The “1/3, 2/3 point of the brain” is 1/3 of the way up from the base of the skull and 2/3 of the way back from the hairline (along the midline—front to back).

Yogi Bhajan said that there are blocks of desire in the personality which are “itchy” and persistent and “they sit in the heart of the person.  But if you put the hand in the heart, you will never find them. They are in the 1/3, 2/3 area of the brain.”
