MEDITATION — TO ELIMINATE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

(Yoga for Prosperity, Siri Kirpal Kaur Khalsa,pp. 48-49.)

Posture: Sit in easy pose or in a chair with a straight spine with a light neck lock (Jalandhar Bandh). 

Focus: The eyes are looking into the cup that you’ve made with your hands.

Breath: Inhale deeply through the nose. Exhale completely in a long, dry, spitting motion through puckered lips. Spit that awful thought out!

Mantra: Think of a persistent negative thought that prevents you from prospering or that is disrupting your life in some way.

Mudra: Make a cup of the hands with the right hand on top of the left and the fingers crossing each other. Relax the upper arms by the sides and place this mudra at the level of your heart.

Time: Continue for 11 minutes.

End: Inhale, hold briefly, exhale and maintain the mudra. Close the eyes, breathe through the nose and focus on the spine. Slowly draw the energy down the spine from the top to the bottom. Feel all 26 vertebrae. The more you feel the entire spine, the more relief you will feel.

Comments: This particular meditation is best practiced only when you have thoughts that bother you; it isn’t recommended to do long term.
