Right now we’re in a powerful position, because the world is having a spiritual awakening. Cynics are filling the yoga studios and the spiritual choir is growing larger. There is a massive call for more lightworkers, and now is our time to rise up and bring more positivity to the world.
Your energy has far more power than you can even imagine. There is energy in your spoken words, in your emails and in your physical presence. When we function from a fearful, low-level energetic state, our thoughts and energy can literally pollute the world. But when we function from a place of positive energy, the world around us becomes more positive. The truth is that fear cannot coexist with love — so we must learn how to dissolve all boundaries with love by taking responsibility for our own energy. You have the power to raise your energy and serve the world.
As a student and a teacher of Kundalini yoga and meditation I have the honor of sharing the transformational technology with you. When I made the commitment to teach Kundalini I signed a sacred contract that said that I would carry its messages, tools and life-changing meditations. Given the chaotic circumstances of our times we need these practices more than ever. It’s a privilege to share them with you. If you’ve read my book Miracles Now you’ve come across several Kundalini meditations. But whether it’s on your bookshelf or not, I want to share these amazing exercises with everyone! That’s why I’m dedicating this post to some of my favorite Kundalini meditations and kriyas for clearing blocks, expanding your auric field and bringing more peace to the world.
As Yogi Bhajan said, “Show some respect for your hidden power. Awaken it!”
Let’s begin your Kundalini meditation journey today and awaken your hidden power!
A meditation for a fresh start
Ever feel like you want to press the restart button on your life? Getting a jump start doesn’t always come easy. We get comfortable in our patterns and behavior even when we know they don’t serve us. But there is a way out. If you want a fresh start, try the Liberation Kriya. A kriya is something you do to bring about a specific outcome. Practicing a kriya puts physical and mental changes in motion to simultaneously stimulate the body, mind and spirit. I’m sharing this one because it brings renewal and longevity, and it’s said to change the molecular structure of your body and mind.
In the video below I teach you how to practice the Liberation Kriya. I encourage you to test-drive this nine-minute practice. You will experience a renewal in many ways and feel a new sense of freedom and lightness. Give yourself a fresh start with this video:
A Meditation to Prevent Freaking Out
Are you the type of person who needs to break down before you break through? For many years that was the case for me. Before I had Kundalini meditations and a greater connection to my energy, I had some epic freak- outs. Though I had many tools for managing my thoughts, I didn’t have great guidance on how to bust through the really tough times and save myself from a meltdown.
One of the best ways to prevent a freak-out is to change your energy through your breath. Every 90 to 120 breaths the dominance changes from one nostril to another. A powerful way to shift your state of mind is to actively change the dominant nostril using the Meditation to Prevent Freaking Out. I’ll guide you to notice which nostril is dominant when you’re freaking out and then switch to the other nostril. When you switch the dominance from one nostril to the other you switch the dominance from one hemisphere of the brain to the other, which will let you look at things from a different perspective.
If you’re irritated, angry or in a funky state, practice this Kundalini meditation featured in Miracles Now. In just a few minutes you will be a different person.
If you’re reading Miracles Now and want further guidance on the meditations, great news: I created a video series where I break down each Kundalini meditation for you so you can do each one with confidence — even if you’re totally new to Kundalini! Check out the meditation videos here.

A Kundalini Meditation for Beginners
Throughout the day we experience all kinds of different stress triggers, including certain circumstances, people, noises, even the weather. Yogi Bhajan said that 85 percent of our behavior is automatic and determined by our environment. If we let our environment dictate our mood, then our life will feel like an emotional roller coaster. The only way off is through our breath.
Every moment offers us an opportunity to redirect our energy out of stress and into peace. Reconnecting to our breath uncoils us from the dramas of the world and reconnects us to peace, health and vitality.
The proper way to breathe is the yogic breath that expands the lungs and works the diaphragm. This method is simple: Breathe in and your diaphragm expands; breathe out and it contracts. Check in with yourself and see if this is how you’ve been breathing. If it’s not, that’s okay! You can change the pattern today and come back to peace.
I like to call this the Backpack Meditation. You can store this meditation in your backpack (or back pocket, or envelope clutch!) and use it whenever stress arises. This simple meditation can be practiced anywhere and you can always rely on it to save you from stress.
Here’s how it works:
The posture: Sit cross-legged in easy pose (as seen in the image of me).
The hands: Place your hands in Giyan mudra, with your thumb pressing against your index finger, otherwise known as Jupiter. When you press your thumb against this finger you ignite your knowledge (as seen in the image of me).
The breath: This Kundalini meditation suggests that you breathe in 8 strokes through your nose and out for 1 stroke through your nose. If yogic breathing is new to you and it’s hard to breathe in that much air then breathe in for 4 strokes instead of 8. Breathe in 4 strokes through the nose and 1 breath out.
Time: You can do this meditation for 1 minute and experience miraculous results. Put this meditation in your back pocket and use it whenever stress arises. If you want to experience maximum results, the Kundalini yogis suggest that you do it for 11 minutes a day for 40 days.
Pay close attention to how your environment triggers your stress patterns. Whenever possible, turn to this meditation to release you from stress and restore your vitality.
