Kriya - Becoming Crystal Clear

(Self-Knowledge  –  Kundalini Yoga as Taught by Yogi Bhajan, p. 4)

  1. Easy Pose. Bring your arms straight out to the sides, parallel to the ground, with the palms facing forward. Begin alternately bringing your palms in as if to beat your chest, but do not beat your chest. Breath of Fire will automatically develop from the motion if you do it correctly and powerfully. Imagine that you are pulling the pranic energy in with each motion of your hands. 6 ½ minutes.

  2. Easy Pose. Bring your hands forcefully in as if to clap them in front of your face, but do not touch the hands together. Combine force and control in your movement. 2 ½ minutes.

  3. Easy Pose. Move both hands up and down at the same time as if bouncing a ball with each hand. You are bouncing energy against the ground. Breath of Fire, 30 seconds.

  4. Easy Pose. Lie down flat and put both hands against the navel point and press it hard. Raise the heels up to 6 inches and stay. Think you are divine or sexy, but keep the heels six inches off the ground. 6 ½ minutes.

  5. Corpse Pose. Lie down and go to sleep. Imagine that your body is filled with light. Focus at your navel point. Listen to Naad, the Blessing by Sangeet Kaur. After 8 minutes begin to sing along using the power of the navel for another 7 minutes.

Yogi Bhajan Comments:  “The total rhythm of this life is achieved when a person experiences his own body, his own mind and his own soul. Kundalini Yoga is the science of crystallization, not sublimation and not evaporation.”

Gurucharan Singh Khalsa Comments:  “When you crystallize the unseen of you, you live through the heart center. When the dreams of the heart gather energy and manifest through the navel chakra, you act on those dreams and nurture them into the world. This set adjusts, aligns and strengthens the flow between the fourth and third energy centers of your subtle body.”
