Release The Past - Especially Childhood Anger

(Meditation as Medicine, p. 182)

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with a light neck lock (Jalandhar Bandh).  

Focus: Close the eyelids and focus the eyes at the third-eye point.

Breath: Inhale deeply by sucking air through your closed teeth and exhale through your nose. Keep your jaw relaxed.

Mantra: There is no mantra.

Mudra: Use your thumbs to lock down the pinkie and ring fingers and extend the index and middle fingers. The palms face forward and the fingers point out to the sides.

Time: 3-11 minutes.

End: Inhale deeply, hold the breath for 10-20 seconds, exhale. Repeat two more times then relax.

Comments: This meditation will help dispel all of the old wounds, fears and anger from the past--especially your childhood--which you may still harbor in your first chakra. It will change you inside and out and help you to live in the present, magical moment.
