Sat Nam Kaur – our teacher of Kundalini Yoga for Healing and children’s programs at the yoga center has done a free meditation video for emotional balance suitable for families and all ages. Enjoy this wonderful uplifting meditation you can do anytime when you feel worried, upset, angry, or just do not know what to do. It a meditation especially good for cranky kids, and teaches us we all need to hydrate more. 75% of people are chronically dehydrated which causes emotional imbalance and many illnesses if left unchecked.
Before Meditating: Drink a glass of water.
Tune in: We tune in. We strengthen the navel point, which is 2-3 fingers below the belly button. We breathe in deeply, first filling our belly, and then our chest. We breathe out in reverse, as we empty our chest first, and then our belly. When we have no more breath left to breathe out, we fill up our belly with breath as we inhale again through our nose.
While sitting straight in a chair or crisscross, our hands come together at our hearts. We press our palms together. We close our eyes, and look between our eyebrows, to activate the part of our brain that helps our whole body. We feel our heart grow as we breathe in and out through our nose. We say, three-five times:
Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo (Oong Nah Moe Guh Ru Dave Nah Moe)
This means, “I connect with the part of me that is wise.” or “I call upon the divine wisdom and self knowledge that is within us.”
Meditation : While sitting straight in a chair or crisscross, we lock our palms against our opposite armpits to activate the lymphatic system.
We raise our shoulders as close to the earlobes as possible, without cramping the neck muscles.
We strengthen the navel point, which is 2-3 fingers below the belly button, and strengthen the muscles around the rib cage, to bring the body up and out of the pelvic floor, and the chest forward, as the chin goes in toward the back of the neck, just enough, so that the head rests above the heart.
We close our eyes, and notice how our breath slows down to four times per minute. Within three minutes, we will have gained indirect control of our minds, and we will be calm, regardless of the state of affairs.
