Sukhraj's Weekly Inspiration - Week of May 20th

Week of May 20th

Moon Phases + Fasting


Sat Nam All,

The phases of the moon have an affect on us phyically, mentally and emotionally. The moon has a powerful effect on water. This is studied intensively by scientists who track how the moon impacts the ocean and the tides. Our bodies are made up of 85% water, which might explain why we are also impacted by the cycles of the moon. Take a listen here for some guidelines to align and balance yourselves with the waxing and waning of the moon.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK

"Your power is in your mind. Your body is just a vehicle. You are not eating food, you are eating for your health, your vitality, your energy, your prosperity, your strength, your “fateh”—your power to conquer. When you eat food, it is God’s own self."

-8/13/92  Yogi Bhajan

MEDITATION OF THE WEEK

Meditation for the Full Moon: 

Meditation: Antar Naad Meditation for the Full Moon—the mantra used for this meditation is called Sa Re Sa Sa.  I have 2 different versions of this on your kundalini playlist this week.

  • Mantra: Sa Re Sa Sa 

  • Posture:

  • Begin with the hands in Prayer Pose at the Navel Point.

  • As the mantra starts with 'Sa Re Sa Sa' start to move the hands up the center line of the body, about 4 to 6 inches in front of the body.

  • As you pass the Heart Center, begin to open the hand mudra to make an open lotus by the time it reaches the level of the Brow Point. The open lotus has the base of the palms together, the little fingertips touch, the thumb tips touch, and the rest of the fingers are spread open.

  • As the mantra begins 'Har Re Har Har' turn the fingers to point down, with the back of the hands touching; it is a reverse Prayer Pose. Slowly bring this mudra down the chakras in rhythm with the music until the fingertips reach the Navel Point on the sounds Har Rang.

     

    Then turn them around and begin again.

  • Time: 11 to 31 minutes 

  • Eyes: Eyes are closed. 

  • Teacher's Notes & More Information:
    “This cycle of the music and mudra is a key to opening the flow of Kundalini. The new awareness will give you the authority to make the right choices to conquer the ugliness of life. You will be peaceful and secure.”
