Kundalini yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual discipline for developing personal energy and sensory awareness. Practitioners call Kundalini yoga, the yoga of awareness because they claim it directly affects human consciousness and connects one to the Infinite energy of God consciousness. Kundalini Yoga will bring you to a state of Union with the Divine, merging the body, mind, and spirit to the Universal Oneness.
The Freedom of Breath
Prana is the creative force that dwells within you every time you take a breath. It is the third dimension to existence: time, space, and breath. Pranayam is the literal practice of breath. Learning to breathe properly will reduce tension throughout the body as well as engage the relaxation response directly affecting the central nervous system. In Kundalini Yoga, there are various techniques to control the breath to create various effects and breathing typically takes place in and out of the nose. By pumping the navel with the diaphragm which activates the lower one third portion of the lungs through rapid, short, powerful intermittent bursts known as Breath of Fire, one may release toxins in the body, balance the hemispheres of the brain, as well as increase blood flow to the upper body. Inhale Sat and exhale Nam, Sat is “truth” and Nam means I “my identity” to allow truth to guide your way, as essentially, you are stating that "God's name is truth."
The Power of Chanting & Mantra
The Shabd Guru is a quantum technology of sound directly affecting consciousness through the power of the Naad, the sound current. There are 84 meridien points in the hard palate of the mouth. The tongue strikes these points as it chants mantra which resonates into the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland to change the chemistry of the brain while it regulates the endocrine system, and strengthen the immune system. The sacred sounds of mantra vibrate up through the Crown Chakra, the thousand petal lotus, to create the aura and magnetic field. The human body is a Divine instrument with strings and chanting vibrates the thirty trillion cells in the body to achieve a state of Anahat, the state of silence where the nervous system vibrates the mantra in perfect unison with the Infinite. Mantra is used to help break negative patterns and thoughts that no longer serve them. Humee Hum Brahm Hum “we are we, we are God.”
The Five Sutras of the Aquarian Age as taught by Yogi Bhajan
1. Understand through compassion, otherwise, you will misunderstand the times.
2. Recognize the other person is you.
3. When the time is on you, start and the pressure will be off.
4. There is a way through every block.
5. Vibrate the cosmos and the cosmos shall clear the path.
Leveraging of Kundalini Yoga
Kundalini Yoga is said to be the fastest way to establish an aligned relationship with the mind, body, and soul. It provides an extra dimension that allows one to confront and overcome physical limitations by tapping into the pranic body of the mind, body, and breath as well as the Z-energy that crosses time and space into the zone of timelessness. What would normally take 20 years, with good concentration, could be done in a year with Kundalini Yoga. Most classes end with the deep relaxation and the playing of the gong. The gong helps clear out subconscious patterns stored in the brain that perpetuate Karma. The mind’s curiosity has 30-90 seconds before it recedes into a state of surrender into known as yogic sleep. The gong penetrates the body and guides the mind as it reorganizes emotional energy and feelings associated with blocks and tensions contained in the structure of the body. Har, Har, Har “one aspect of God- the Creative Infinity.”
