Life is filled with sudden shocks, starting with birth itself. We all encounter unanticipated changes in our lives. How do we stay calm and steady, and connected to our sense of self when life shakes us up?
Kundalini Yoga offers many kriyas and meditations that help to manage stress and strengthen nerves. What makes Kundalini Yoga more effective for stress reduction than, say, 20 minutes on the elliptical machine at your gym? While most forms of exercise reduce stress, Kundalini Yoga is uniquely suited because of its positive effects on the glands and nerves. The practice of Kundalini Yoga releases tension from the inner organs, nerves, and glands, and creates an internal biochemistry of calm, inner balance, and depth of self.
This week we shall work on the Kriya for “Relieving Your Elementary Stress”.
Then we will do the meditation “Tattva Balance Beyond Stress and Duality”.
This meditation balances the brain and relieves stress. It takes only three minutes but can have a profound effect. 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.
Yogis have long recognized that the best decision-making takes place when the left and right hemispheres of the brain are balanced and synchronized. Since the left brain questions and the right brain accepts, an individual's analytical and creative thought processes are most effective when a state of balance in neutrality is achieved.
Yoga and meditation are effective technologies for clearing the clutter of the mind's incessant chatter to reach a state of inner quietude where intuition flows and the solutions to even the toughest problems can be discovered.
