Meditation for Freeing the Blocks


We need the meditation practice.  It not only prepares the consciousness for a new day but it brings us into a place of balance at every level of being. It’s important to feel that silence and restfulness at every level of being.

Begin by focusing at the centre of the eyebrows.  This connects us to the energy centre of the mind that is in our subtle body.   As you breathe out take your attention down the centre line of the body right down to the perineum area. As you breathe in, keep that pelvic area firm and grounded and breathe up along the spinal column. Your attention should be along the spinal column,  right up to the medulla point at the back of the neck and across the brain to the third eye.  That’s how you connect to every level of being.

Now, if you feel that the prana or the breathing is not settling down then look for the area where you may feel a block in the breathing.  Breathe out from that point and breathe in from that point, keeping attention on the block, but holding the consciousness of freeing the block every time you breathe out and breathe in.  Each time you breathe in tap into your deeper centre of being, tapping into Grace, into a greater flow of energy.  And every time you breathe out, you’re letting go.  So if you feel a knot in the chest area for example focus there, begin to nourish that area.

As you breathe out once again take your attention down the centerline of the body letting the shoulders drop, the chest contract, belly contract and go right down to the root.  It should give the experience of being grounded, making contact with the earth and keeping that grounded feeling on the consciousness of the perineum area.  That’s the energy centre of the base that grounds you to the earth.  Breathe up along the spinal column.  So the spinal column is in your awareness and the brain is in your awareness and this is how you  balance the prana at every level of being.

Meditation for Inner Freedom

Begin to quiet the mind, so that we can observe our Self as being different to the body. Let us move away body-conscious thoughts, observing the body, but not identifying with it as our reality.

There is chakra awareness within you along the spine; there is prāṇa awareness with the breath, and; there is awareness of attention and intention. In the subtle world, your intention can create your reality, your perception. Your mind can create your reality. Begin to observe that space.

Stay with the moving breath. Open the belly and the chest to breathe, and breathe more completely, with attention along the spine. From the base of the spine, perineum area, take your attention along the spine as you breathe right to the back of the neck in the medulla area. And as you go to the medulla area, focus on the third eye. You are coming into subtle body awareness when you do that.

Protect the mind from being caught up in thoughts, beliefs, ideas, expectations, and impatience. Stay completely alert. Do not fall into sleep when you come in this space and try to retire the mind. You can do that by focusing on the third eye.

Whichever area along the spine feels burdened or challenged, take your attention there, still holding that mental power of the third eye. Focus on whichever chakra feels unbalanced.

The goal is not to be caught in the subtle dreams of the mind, nor to fall into the deep sleep, but to try to be fully aware.  This is how you learn to master the subtle world. It needs Rudra ( third eye) power to manage it; Guru power. Kuṇḍalinī brings it to us.
