A Meditation for Healing Addiction

Let’s face it: in some form or another we all suffer from addiction. These days we often turn to drugs, alcohol, food, sex, work, the Internet and many other addictive obsessions in efforts to avoid feeling our discomfort. If we’re not addicted to the drugs, cigarettes or the typical vices then we are subconsciously addicted to fear, rejection, victim-hood etc. In some way we’re all addicted to negative patterns.

When we’re addicted there is an imbalance in the pineal gland also called the the third eye. The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. When the pineal gland is imbalanced bad habits turn into addictions. The imbalance in the pineal gland affects the pituitary gland which regulates the rest of the glandular system. When the pituitary gland is affected the entire body and mind go out of balance.

Use this Kundalini meditation for any type of addiction from alcoholism to addiction to fear based thoughts.

Breakdown as taught by Yogi Bhajan
Sit in an Easy Pose, with a light jalandhar bandh. Straighten the spine and make sure the first six lower vertebrae are locked forward.

Eyes: Keep the eyes closed and focus at the Brow Point.

Mantra: SAA-TAA-NAA-MAA {in your mind as you press down on your molars}

Mudra: Make fists of both hands and extend the thumbs straight. Place the thumbs on the temples and find the niche where the thumbs just fit. This is the lower anterior portion of the frontal bone above the temporal-sphenoidal suture. Lock the back molars together and keep the lips closed. Keeping the teeth pressed together throughout,
alternately squeeze the molars tightly and then release the pressure. A muscle will move in rhythm under the thumbs. Feel it massage the thumbs and apply a firm pressure with the hands. Silently vibrate the five primal sounds—the Panj Shabd—SAA-TAA-NAA-MAA, at the brow.

Time: Continue for 5-7 minutes. With practice the time can be increased to 20 minutes and ultimately to 31 minutes.

Meditations to calm down

April is National stress awareness month. Last week I visited Good Day New York to share ways to reduce stress. In this video I offer a stress-free way to start your day and two Kundalini meditations that will calm you down.

How to Reduce Stress

For months I’d been praying for a book that would keep me up at night. You know what I mean: the kind of book you just can’t bear to put down. One afternoon I opened my mailbox to find a package—it was an advance copy of my dear friend Nick Ortner’s new book, The Tapping Solution. For several years Nick has led a tapping revolution. Tapping, otherwise known as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), is a psychological acupressure technique that supports your emotional health. By tapping on specific energy meridians on your body, you can unblock ancient fears, limiting beliefs and negative patterns. When stimulated, your body’s energy meridians can trigger the amygdala (a.k.a. the “fight or flight” part of brain) and signal it to calm down. When the amygdala gets the memo that it’s safe to relax, stress is immediately reduced. I’ve found tapping to be one of the best ways to bust through blocks in an instant.

Now I’m taking my tapping to the next level! In reading Nick’s new book, The Tapping Solution, I’ve taught myself how to lead a tapping session. In this vlog I will lead you through a tapping session that will lessen your stress and help you feel physically and mentally calmer. As you tap on the specific meridians I will guide you to address certain emotions that come up around your stress. Simply follow my lead and let the tapping begin!

A Meditation for Manifesting

In this video I teach a Kundalini meditation called Purify the Subtle Body. The subtle body, is the part of us which calls in opportunities, brings us good news and attracts positivity towards us. This meditation strengthens your energy field so that you become a magnet for miracles. Practicing this meditation will make you shine bright and deepen your connection to the Universe.

In the video I breakdown the meditation and guide you along with the music. For further clarification please see the instructions below. If you have a shoulder issue and cannot lift your arms overhead simply envision yourself doing the exercise and you’ll receive the same benefit from the meditation.

If you enjoy this meditation you can check out the full May Cause Miracles digital course here.

Mudra: Sitting in easy pose (cross legged) with a straight spine, place the arms down by the sides, backs of the palms on the ground next to the sides of the body.

Movement: As you inhale, raise the arms over the head, until the two palms overlap a few inches above the your head (known as the tenth gate). The right hand will be a few inches above the head. The left palm will lie flat on top of the back of the right hand. The thumbs do NOT touch. (Note: Yogi Bhajan very specifically keeps the thumbs separated when the hands overlap over the top of the head.)

Breath: Make your mouth into an “O.” Inhale through the “O” as you raise the arms over the head, and exhale through the “O” as you lower the hands back down to the ground.

Chant: The “Tantric Har” music which is played in the video. On the first “Har” raise your arms up. On the second “Har” your arms go down. Continue in this rhythmic movement. Pull in on the navel and the diaphragm as you do the movement.

Time: If you’re new to Kundalini meditation begin with 3 minutes. If you want to go big then practice this meditation for 11 minutes a day.

End: Inhale deeply. Immediately interlace the hands over the head, elbows straight, and begin to deeply stretch the body right to left, and left to right, without letting go of the hands.

Continue as you hold the breath for 15 seconds. Exhale. Repeat 3 times total. Relax.

Money and Miracles

Financial fear and insecurity is at an all-time high. While on the road for the May Cause Miracles book tour, I talked to so many people who felt strangled by their lack mentality and fear of not having enough. This week’s video is focused on Week Five: Raise Your Self-Worth, Raise Your Net Worth. In this video I offer guidance on how to shift your fear around your finances.

Throughout Week Five of May Cause Miracles, I teach that abundance begins with your mindset. If you think lacking thoughts, that lack will be reflected in your bank account. The goal this week is to start cleaning up your thoughts and energy around money.

You’ll begin to understand that energy is currency. When your energy has an essence of abundance, you greatly increase your capacity to receive more abundance. Yogi Bhajan said it best: “You run after wealth and glory and glamour. But it will run after you, providing you are an open channel.” Let’s work together this week to bust through the lack mentality and rev up your creative capacity to exchange and receive financial abundance.

Each subtle shift this week will help you open up to your miracle mindset around your finances to raise your self-worth and your net worth.

Want to take these principles even further? Check out my friend Marie Forleo’s free video on how to build an online business. Marie’s mission is to help people release their financial fears and open up to creative possibilities for abundance. Watch here.
