Meditation for Increased Energy

Whether you wake up tired, feel your energy dip in the afternoon or drag yourself through most of the day, lethargy makes it really hard to feel inspired and productive. If you need more vitality, I’ve got your solution. Put down the coffee and pick up this Kundalini meditation for increased energy. {tweet it} You can use it the moment you wake up, in the middle of the day or whenever you need a recharge.

  13. Ashley says: March 10, 2014 at 10:29 am

    I have been wanting to get into meditation, but I always think I don’t have time. I felt exhausted this morning and saw this post and thought I so have time so let me try it. I honestly can’t believe the increase of energy I feel! It’s amazing! Thank you for everything that you do – I have been learning a lot since I started following you :)

    Should we be breathing in and out through our nose or mouth?

  18. Donna Barnard says: March 10, 2014 at 11:07 am

    Thank you so much! I can’t wait to try this today. Monday’s are perfect for an extra shot of enery (which doesn’t involve coffee).

    1. Gabby says: March 10, 2014 at 12:32 pm

      perfect place to do it!!1

  23. Kelsey says: March 10, 2014 at 11:52 am

    Question – the in and out strokes is that separate little breaths as I’ve seen in your other work or is it a fluid breath for 4 seconds? Thanks and big hugs!

  24. Diandra Diede says: March 10, 2014 at 12:40 pm

    I woke up this morning thinking “There is no amount of coffee that will wake me up today!”, so seeing this in my inbox was just what I needed! Thanks Gabby xoxo

  25. Fiona says: March 10, 2014 at 12:47 pm

    Love it thank you, it brought me better focus :) and just in time for a kick ass evening! Thanks,x

  26. Leigh says: March 10, 2014 at 12:53 pm

    Just simply sweet! This is what I was looking for this morning and it was just abundant with it’s fulfillment just now. Being a Reiki, I have noticed that negative energies can be very overwhelming for me. This was the case this morning and this little tid bit you shared has aided me in adding some positive energy back into these Chakras!
    Peace and namaste Gabrielle

  27. Jewels says: March 10, 2014 at 1:27 pm

    I just love Kundalini Yoga. I’ve been a Hatha yoga teacher for years but Kundalini supports me in so many ways. It’s been a powerful addition to my spiritual practice. I wrote about my experience in one of my last blogs. Hope it inspires you. http://jewelsbertrand.com/the-power-of-a-daily-spiritual-practice/

    Thanks Gabby for continuing to uplift us.

  29. Aimee says: March 10, 2014 at 4:54 pm

    Thank u so much :) I was just wondering how long should the meditation go for? And also do we exhale through the nose or mouth? :)

    1. Gabby says: March 11, 2014 at 2:39 pm

      nose. and do it for up to 11 minutes. or any time less.

  30. Tien says: March 10, 2014 at 6:42 pm

    I did this together with my students today (ages 10-16). We all loved it and are adding this to our repertoire. We are going to do it each day this week so that it becomes a tool. Thanks SO much!

    1. Gabby says: March 11, 2014 at 11:05 am

  32. Tamara says: March 10, 2014 at 9:26 pm

    Hi Gabby! I’m excited to try this meditation tomorrow during my afternoon energy slump rather than heading to the soda or coffee machine. Thanks so much for this wonderful alternative.

    1. Gabby says: March 11, 2014 at 2:37 pm

      I need to do meditation, because we humans always need cosmic energy in order to stay happy :)
      Great article..

  38. Clarisa Mompremier says: March 11, 2014 at 4:50 pm

    Perfect timing..this week is very busy and I didn’t want to rely on any external pick me ups. This meditation is an instant pick me up. I used it in the morning and during my midday dip. I feel energized and ready to keep going. Thank you for sharing!!!!! I will be using this meditation all week long.
    Xoxo

  39. Alyson says: March 11, 2014 at 5:05 pm

    It’s 2pm here in San Diego and I’m sitting at my desk in need of some energy and did this meditation and feel instantly better! Woohoo!!!
    Thanks so much Gabby I will for sure be using this often. xox

  40. NataliA says: March 11, 2014 at 6:39 pm

    Thanks Gabby! I had a long day today, and this truly perked me up, I will be utilizing this in my daily routine.

  41. Barb Culkin says: March 11, 2014 at 6:57 pm

    My little guy is in the process of teething and doesn’t always sleep well thru the night lately. Some mornings, my hubby and I are exhausted!! We’ll try this as a booster. It will come in handy;)!!
    Thanks, Gabby!

  42. Silje-kathrin hagen says: March 12, 2014 at 7:28 am

    For how long shall you do it? 3 min?

  43. Lizzy Goddard says: March 13, 2014 at 9:15 am

    Sadly this didn’t have any affect on me… but maybe that’s because I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome!

    1. Gabby says: March 13, 2014 at 5:43 pm

      try it for forty days.

  44. Ariel says: March 13, 2014 at 11:13 am

    When we exhale, is it through the nose or the mouth? And how long should we do this exercise? Thanks! :)

    1. Ariel says: March 13, 2014 at 11:15 am

      Opps I just noticed that my questions have already been answered! Thanks :)

  45. Jess says: March 13, 2014 at 1:09 pm

    Couldn’t have come at a better time, I needed this!
    It works =D
    Thank you Gabby!

  46. hila says: March 19, 2014 at 6:56 am

    Did this before a big presentation that I wasn’t really up for – totally changed my mood and attitude. Feeling like an ~ing girl! Thanks, G!

  47. bella says: March 21, 2014 at 8:11 pm

    Hi Gabby! Thank you so much for sharing this simple exercise! I have a question about a previous technique you shared. It was a breathing exercise to use to expand your energy during an argument. Was it just inharing through the mouth and exhaling through the nose? Thanks again and keep up the great job! :)

  48. Ruth says: March 25, 2014 at 8:59 am

    Dear Gabby,

    Thank you as always for your awesome posts. Speaking of energy, could you do a post on how to overcome depression? I bet I’m not the only one struggling with it at the end of this winter we’ve had here in NYC. I would LOVE to hear your thoughts! Thank you!

    Ruth

  49. catherine says: April 1, 2014 at 2:37 am

    Dear Gabby,

    Thank you for your ever inspiring, lifechanging videos and posts!
    I tried this exercise and I did feel a lot of energy and power, but the quick, short in and out breathing made me light in my head, as if I was going to faint. What am I doing wrong? :-)

    PS: just finished Spirit junkie, it changed my life!!! thank you thank you thank you! On my way to a better, more peaceful life, all thanks to you.

    Much LOVE from Belgium! <3

    1. Gabby says: April 1, 2014 at 10:26 am

      make sure you’re stomach is extending on the inhale and contracting on the exhale. then you won’t feel dizzy

  50. Kerri says: April 7, 2014 at 9:38 pm

    Dear Gabby,
    Over the last year ( a bit less) I’ve been meditating to Snatnam Kaur’s Ra Ma Da Sa love meditation and I’ve met the most wonderful man and I’m in the best relationship of my life. Meditation is so powerful!
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9OCEfi4Lv0&feature=kp
    Thanks for showing me the way. Although I knew meditation was a good thing to practice, I didn’t really commit to it until reading Spirit Junkie.
    Lots of love,

  51. Jaclyn says: April 10, 2014 at 2:31 pm

    HOLY INSTANT CALM! Loved this!
    Thank you, Sister! xo

  52. Clare says: June 19, 2014 at 6:38 pm

    Hey,

    this works! :D thank you. i’m a mom to a sick baby right now and i so needed and felt that!

  53. Edward says: October 29, 2014 at 3:19 pm

    Thank you for this. I have narcolepsy and anything that helps with increasing alertness and energy is appreciated. I hope someday I’ll find something effective enough to make me feel like there is a reason to go on living.
