This is a powerful transformative meditation which is said to invoke the Kundalini energy to give you the necessary vitality and intuition to combat the negative effects of the subconscious mind, which releases negative thoughts into the conscious mind.
It is a healing meditation that can increase your depth, dimension, caliber, and happiness. It can cut through all darkness and neurotic barriers and give you a new start against all odds. According to the tantra shastras, it can purify your past karma and the subconscious impulses that may block you from fulfilling you.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine, and a light Neck Lock.
Eyes: The eyes are fixed at the tip of the nose. (This meditation is not to be done with the eyes closed.)
Breath and Mantra:
a) Block the right nostril with the right thumb. Inhale slowly and deeply through the left nostril. Suspend the breath.
Mentally chant the mantra Wha-Hay Gu-Roo 16 times.
Pull the navel in 1/3 of the way on Wha, 1/3 farther on Hay, and all the way in on Guroo. Repeat this process, mentally chanting the mantra.
b) After the 16 repetitions, unblock the right nostril. Place the right index finger (pinkie finger can also be used) to block off the left nostril, and exhale slowly and deeply through the right nostril.
Continue repeating a) and b).
Time: Start slowly with 5 minutes. Gradually build the time to 31 or 62 minutes. Master practitioners may extend this practice to 62 minutes, then to 2-1/2 hours a day. The maximum time to practice this meditation is 2-1/2 hours.
Inhale, hold the breath 5-10 seconds, then exhale. Stretch the arms up and shake every part of your body for 1 minute, so the energy can spread.
