Yogi Tip #15: Wahe Guru Kriya for Nervous Balance
Wahe Guru Kriya for Nervous Balance
POSTURE: Sit with your spine straight in Easy Pose
EYES: The eyes are 9/10th closed
MUDRA & BREATH: Your hands start on your knees in Gyan Mudra, thumb tips and index fingertips touching, palms up and fingers straight. Move the hands in 10 short, sharp movements towards your forehead, hands flat. With each of the 10 movements, you take a small sniff of air in through your nose. After taking 10 sniffs in, your lungs are fully expanded and your palms are touching your forehead, with the fingers pointing up.
Then, with one long, smooth exhale, slowly bring your fingertips together like a teepee, dropping the hands back towards the lap. Separate your hands once they reach the level of your navel, and return them to Gyan Mudra as your hands go back out to your knees to start the breath and movement cycle again.
MANTRA: On every inhale mentally vibrate the mantra WAHE (WahHey) and on every exhale vibrate GURU.
TIME: Begin this practice with only a few minutes, then increase slowly to 11 minutes
COMMENTS: This wahe guru kriya builds the nervous system so that nothing bothers you. It stimulates the pituitary and gives you an expanded intuitive sense; it makes the mind clear and decisive. If your aura and nerves lack strength, it is difficult to act on your ideals. This kriya helps you direct yourself with consciousness and courage.
