Yogic Living: Serving Mother Earth

We are one with the One and all creation. As we celebrate UN International Mother Earth Day, let's take conscious action to help sustain and nurture our Mother Earth and all her creatures.

"The Universe is asking you to confirm with yourself whether you would like to serve the Earth, to save the Earth, be a sage of the Earth. Earth—the sustainer, the Mother of you, which nurtures you—can you nurture it back? That which serves you, can you serve it back?" 
-Yogi Bhajan, 7/23/96

Quotes on Mother Earth

 

Kundalini Yoga Technology

Isht Sodhana Mantra Kriya
The Isht Sodhana Mantra is a perfect mantra for the Earth energy. It connects the Earth and the vastness of the ether and projects it from the heart.

Calling on the Spirit of Mother Earth
Invoke the spirit of Mother Earth with your own body.

Ra Ma Da Sa Healing Meditation
This mantra taps into the energies of the sun, moon, earth, and the Infinite Spirit to bring deep healing.

Alternate Nostril Breathing
This pranayam creates a deep sense of well-being and harmony on the physical, mental, and emotional levels. It is integrating and grounding.

Earthquake Meditation
This meditation resets our brain after a shock—especially those that rapidly shift our magnetic field, and that quells our emotional reactions to change. 

Foundation for Infinity
To reach the subtle realm of ether where we are by nature boundless, we must first set a firm foundation on the Earth. 

The Divine Shield Meditation for Protection and Positivity 
When this shield is strong, it is easy to sense the tide of the Universe, the Tao. You become spontaneous and vital as you move in rhythm with the greater reality, of which you are a part.

Sat Kriya
Sat Kriya works primarily on the lower triangle—the first (Earth), second (Water), and third (Fire) chakras. The first chakra relates to birth, infancy, and the issues of fundamental security, being-ness, and belonging. 

Tattva Balance Beyond Stress & Duality
The five elements, or tattvas, are Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether. If the tattvas are strong, in balance, and located in their proper areas of the body, then you can resist stress, trauma, and illness.

Kriya for Balancing the Aura
A strong and balanced aura will help protect you from negative energy and keep you healthy.
