The yogic goal
Every Kundalini yoga session offers, through the combination of body postures and movements as well as breathing exercises and meditation, enormous possibilities to become aware of yourself and to get closer to the yogic goal: to live healthy, happy, real and truly live.
Kundalini yoga exercises change the appearance of a person in a positive way. The exercises stimulate the metabolism, melt fat cushions, make the body tighter and stimulate the soul. Those who engage in yoga often automatically eat healthier food and reduce the excessive consumption of stimulants.Kundalini yoga supplements other sports perfectly, especially endurance sports -they can really benefit from each other. When running, for example, you move in nature and you can live out yourself - in yoga you focus your attention and you become more balanced.
Targeted physical exercises (asanas) strengthen the muscles of legs, hips, stomach and back and make you aware of wrong postures. Wear in joints is slowed because you learn to keep the body upright.Muscle groups that are extremely stressed during exercising are best stretched and regenerated by Kundalini yoga. Through the endurance training, the functioning of the heart and blood circulation more effective and that has apositive effect on the practice of the asanas of Kundalini yoga. And the most important thing is that even a healthy body has a positive effect on the mind!
Because Kundalini yoga lacks extreme stretch or postures, everyone can practice this form of yoga. The simple movements and postures can be learned very quickly, both by active athletes and by less trained people. The emphasis of kundalini yoga is on active exercises that are combined into practice sequences. Every kriya has an effect on physical, psychological, emotional, mental and spiritual areas.
In yoga it is absolutely necessary to pay attention to the breathing. Breathing is one of the most important tools when climbing the ladder to lighting: during kundalini exercises, attention is always paid to it.Pranayama is a deep breathing that stimulates the awakening and climbing of kundalini. With yoga you balance certain body movements and breathing techniques. Because of the concentration on the different breaths you focus your attention inside and develop your self-confidence in your body and abilities.Man breathes automatically, so unconsciously. That is vitally important because he could only stay alive for a few minutes without breathing. Unfortunately, that does not mean that people also breathe in the right way. A person often uses only a third of his lung capacity and his vital systems only work on the pilot flame.If you become aware of the breathing process, it becomes clear how important it is to fully exhale, for example. Breathing out deeply cleanses the body and can absorb as much oxygen as it needs to keep the cells healthy.
In order to get your breathing going properly, you first have to consciously think about it. Empty your lungs completely. Then slowly transfer the oxygen through the nose to the lower abdomen. The lungs fill, the stomach swells. Follow the path of the breathing air in your thoughts. In the long run, this way of breathing becomes an automatism - let it disappear in your subconscious mind. Breathing well and completely stimulates physical and psychological health and improves the quality of your life.
Meditation is one of the most important ways to cultivate your Kundalini. Only meditation is not enough to awaken the Kundalini, and there is no risk of promoting the Kundalini process, so you do not have to worry about a 'Kundalini attack'. There are various forms of meditation, using postures, bhandas, breathing techniques, visualization, mantra's silence, or even movement.Despite this diversity, meditation can simply be described as 'a way of becoming aware'. Many people do not find meditation easy.
It is difficult to apply the concentration that is the most important aspect of meditation, and it is also difficult to find enough time and a quiet place. Therefore stop trying. Just do it. Pay attention to your breathing in daily life. That helps you live in the present and brings you closer to yourself and others.While other techniques and processes can be added, every form of meditation begins with breathing - and you did that anyway. Breathe in your consciousness of the moment, the words you speak, a project you're performing or the smell of fresh bread. In many religions the same word is used for the terms 'breath' and 'spirit'. Breathing is therefore a spiritual experience. Be aware of your body: You live in your body. Concentrate on it and let your breath penetrate at all corners of it.Let your mind wander: The best way to prevent your thoughts from straying is to let this happen. Let them run free for a while before you empty your head.Breath consciously: If you can not stop your thoughts, concentrate on your breathing. Use a breathing technique that you like, or breathe normally.
Also meditating means to anchor the mind in the moment. This makes it possible to clean the mind. The goal is to bring the thoughts to a standstill. That opens the senses and the mind for a connection with the total cosmos. Learning to meditate perfectly can become a life task.However, the road is the goal. The practice of meditation trains the physical consciousness, refines the senses, calms, the nerves and lets the life energy flow harmoniously.'Just as the sun's rays that are concentrated at a point on a point are magnifying their effect many times, so is the person whose thoughts are concentrated a storehouse of energy, peace and psychic power.'Meditate with every physical exercise. To use the brain halves in a harmonious way and to be able to process the energy of the exercises, you can complete all exercises, close each practice series with a meditation. The exercises themselves usually stimulate the action-oriented, analytical left brain, while the meditation activates the right hemisphere, which stands for relaxation and insight into the larger whole.
Thousands years ago, yogis found that parts of the hand are connected to certain parts of the brain or body. The hands therefore reflect our emotions and our behavior. A mudra is a hand position that activates the energy in a part of the hand and sends a message to the corresponding part of our energy system. Kundalini yoga often uses mudras to open the chakras and nadis and to stimulate Kundalini. Here are some examples of mudras that are often used as part of Kundalini yoga.
Mantras are, sayings that have a soothing influence on both the soul and Kundalini. They can unlock the nadis and chakras and bring us into contact with the Divine.
Mantras are chants or afframes that are often used during meditation to activate spiritual powers and gain access to higher energy. They are often called 'sound symbols', but they can also be displayed visually.Mantras are used in almost all religions and spiritual traditions. Every expression that supports the spiritual experience is a mantra. It can be a song, a fragment ofa sacred text, a poem, a prayer or even a magical spell. It can be the name of a god, or one of the names of the Almighty. A mantra helps you become one with the Divine and embody the characteristics.You can use your own name as a mantra, or change a positive thought into a mantra by focusing on it. Some people take a picture that represents the idea behind a mantra as a target. Everything that promotes a spiritual attitude - also a course of action, a feeling, a thought or a formulated objective - can be a mantra.We will concentrate here on verbal mantras, because the energetic effectiveness of a mantra is determined by the 84 meridian points on the tongue and in the mouth. Meridians are energy channels in the body that spread chi, much like the nadis do with prana. (Some people think that it is the same system).All important Merdians are connected with energy points on the tongue. The sounds that we produce therefore function as codes that give access to the higher spiritual centers. In most yoga traditions simple sounds are used, such as Aum (or Ohm), So, Ah and Hum. These sounds are from Sanskrit and possess an incredible power. In Sanskrit all letters and letter combinations have a meaning.That's why, even the smallest word possesses a sacred energy that can generate great spiritual power.
A good diet
The most important way to ensure a healthy Kundalini experience is a healthy diet. A healthy diet is composed of pure and nutritious ingredients that contain a large amount of prana life energy. The fist rule is that the closer a food is to its own origin, the healthier it is for you. For example, harvested carrots will contain more prana than canned carrots.When buying dairy or meat, think of the hormones, antibiotics and other foreign substances that might be there, and the conditions under which the animal was raised, milked and slaughtered. Stress allows the cortisol and adrenaline levels of animals to rise, and those hormones become part of your energy when you eat animal products.Whatever you eat and drink, products without preservatives and other added substances are always the best choice. An effective way to stimulate the climb of Kundalini and promote your recovery is to follow a chakra diet.In the description of each chakra, you will see nutrition for each chakra.
