Yogic Living: Surround Yourself with Protection

Within the realm of Kundalini Yoga are many meditations and mantras that can be used to build protective energy around and within us. We can choose specific techniques to protect us from negativity, accidents, obstacles, enemies, animosity, and the results of our past karma.

The power of mantra and meditation can cut through all opposing vibrations, thoughts, words and actions, and strengthen our magnetic field to keep negativity away.

As we increase our light and radiance, and live our lives in alignment with truth and love, the compassion of the Universe uplifts and expands us. It provides a Divine protective shield to accompany us through life.

“All the prayers, all the mantras you chant, all the good words you speak, all the good thoughts you have—they build up only one thing around you, and that is your divine protective shield. It is what does not allow any negative force to enter you, and when the negative force does not enter you, you cannot be unhealthy, unhappy, unholy.”
-Yogi Bhajan 9/20/71
