Meditation to Listen without Fear

Taught by Yogi Bhajan on 12/8/90

This meditation works on the heart center and the head, and the interlock of fear that blocks your ability to actually listen to another person. It stimulates the stem of the brain and the old emotions to release. You can then combine your reality with the actions of the medulla and hypothalamus circuits to express yourself truly and listen to another person clearly.

You need an inner status of reality and security in order to listen, to act on what you know. Otherwise, arguments and suggestions may be rational and positive, but they are hard to hear and to act on. This will help to create that balance inside. It will get you past the fears.

Imagine as you sit for this meditation that you self-hypnotize yourself to feel a million people sitting before you. You have come before them to elevate their consciousness and their lives. They depend on you. You listen to every heartbeat and frequency; you are confidently radiant, and take each thought to Infinity.
