Full Moon Meditation for Clearing [Reiki Infused]

PLEASE NOTE, WHILE IT IS GREAT TO DO THIS WITH THE FULL MOON, YOU CAN REALLY DO JUST THE MEDITATION OR THE ENTIRE EXERCISE ANYTIME...

The energy of the Full Moon is often thought of as shining a light on what is hidden within us. The stuff that is not on the surface. The light of the moon shines on all the things that we often don’t want to look at. During different phases of the Moon, different parts of our sub conscious beliefs are more present. We have more access to these “unseen” parts. We can use these times to work on clearing and unblocking the old limiting beliefs that are no longer serving us. A Lunar Eclipse, is an extra special and powerful Full Moon. It is a perfect time to look within ourselves, see what is there and then put an end to the pattern.

As I always say, I am not an astrologer, but I deeply feel the energy of the moon cycles. I look to get quiet during different phases and feel what is coming up for me during that times. So around phases like the New Moon, Full Moon or Eclipses, I do rituls and meditations that use the extra energy of the sky during these powerful times. And, lets be honest, you have most likely already started to feel the intensity of our planetary party going on.

With all of this powerful energy in the sky, let’s use it to help let go of what ever it is that is no longer serving us. Take some time to do the following meditation, so that you can fully release what you no longer need.

When you are finished,  pull out your journal and acknowledge the things that came up for you.  Writing out and saying out loud that you are ready to release each thing that came up. Take your time, feeling and releasing what you are tired of carrying around with you. Get clear. This is also a good time to clear your crystals, if you feel called to. You can do with Palo Santo, Sage, Sound, Dirt, Water etc... To get more information check out THIS VIDEO where we talk about crystals, moons and clearing....When you are finished put your crystals either outside or near a window for 24 hours...You can rip up the paper after, burn it, throw it down the toilet…whatever feels best for you…

Meditation for Clarity [Audio File]

As many of you you know, I am a big fan of rituals. Taking these moments to get intentional with my life help me to create a life filled with the things I want, instead of repeating old things I don’t. The following meditation is great for the begining of the month, new moons, and birthdays…Basically, it is a great intention setting meditation…

During these times of creation, I make sure to take extra time to get quiet and set some goals for myself. I find that I can get a lot of answers to what I want and what I need to do when I get curious during meditation. The answers i receive during these mediations, lead me to aligned actions. They help me take steps that feel in flow, rather than forced.

I recorded a guided mediation, that I listen to often, (I know it is a little weird that I listen to myself), but I find that it helps put me in the direction I want to go. This particular meditation is working with your future self, the version of you that you want for yourself. We are often trying to manifest a certain life, but our old patterns keep us trapped and repeating our old frustrations and we can feel as if we are never getting anywhere.. You can change that!

We are often acting from our old patterning, and from our habits. When we actively use our imagination to change the pattern, after time, a new habit can be formed. I have found that consistently going into meditation with the version of myself that I know I can be, is one of the quickest ways to create the new pattern and experience the changed me.

I wanted to share it with you and I hope it gives you the clarity and inspiration it gives me. Enjoy!

Clarity is the most important thing. I can compare clarity to pruning in gardening. You know, you need to be clear. If you are not clear, nothing is going to happen. You have to be clear. Then you have to be confident about your vision. And after that, you just have to put a lot of work in.

Emotions Running Deep [Audio + Playlist]

Jamie-graber-meditate.jpg

 

Please note, while it is great to do this with the New Moon, you can really start ANYTIME, so don't make excuses why you can't start TODAY!

I almost didn’t post anything today. To be honest, I have been in a funk. For the last few days I have felt a heaviness inside of myself, a questioning of things, old thoughts peaking their head. It’s been uncomfortable to say the very least. While I am not one to dwell in my feelings (anymore), I know I have to honor them and allow myself to actually feel it. .

If you have been reading any of the astrology reports, then you know that a New Moon in Pisces is a time of deep healing and of feeling emotional. For someone who rarely cries, I have shed more in the past few days then I have in months. And as I sit is that strong discomfort, I can feel the heaviness slowlly lifting.

I have found for me, that when I get curious as to why I am feeling a certain way I am able to unwrap it and learn from it. When the feelings of sadness, doubt or fear come in, I sit with them and lean in to hear what my body and emotions are trying to tell me.

 With this New Moon in Pisces, and Mercury in Retrograde, it is a perfect time to slow down, reflect, go inward.   This month with New Moon in Pisces, we can focus on healing. It is time for us to look inside and see what we have been avoiding, bringing it to the surface, and then letting it go.   

Some people think that to be strong is to never feel pain. In reality, the strongest people are the ones who feel it, understand it, accept and learn from it. — Unknown

RITUAL

So, for this new moon, I invite you to take some time and get quiet. Find an area that feels sacred to you. Get out your journal, incense and cleanser of choice, I will be using Palo Santo.  And, for this Ritual, I will be focusing on my Amethyst and Selenite Crystals, as they both have such healing and clearing powers.

As you listen to the recording above, I will take you through some of the prompts below.

Have your journal, crystals and what ever you are using to clear near by.

 Just sit quiet or lie down and breathe. Go in. Just let it out. Write it out, what has been coming up for you, what have you feel trying to bury inside. Give yourself permission to feel the pain, and know that is ok. Those things that have been whispering in your ear, release them on the paper. 

When you're finished, read it out loud telling yourself that it is ok to feel this way.  You are ready to heal it, and you know that means you have to see it and feel it first. Saying it aloud helps to take away the shame of keeping the pain unspoken and hidden. As you are reading your words, try to step outside yourself and see the lessons that that pain has brought you.  Look for the opportunities of learning and growth. 

When you feel ready, take your palo santo or sage, and start swirling the smoke around yourself and then your crystals. Really feeling the clearing that the smoke creates. Really feel yourself releasing the guilt, the shame and the pain. Then, place your crystals outside or by a window for a minimum of 24 hours.  

As far as the entry, I will be keeping it. I am finding the more I look back and reflect, the more I learn. Do what feels intuitive for you, burn it, throw it down the toilet, keep it etc...

PLAYLIST HERE if you want to go in without the prompts.

Please  let me know how it goes! 

If you’re ready to really go after your goals and want a little extra help, I would love to see you in New York City in person, or virtually anywhere Schedule a time here. Looking forward to connecting!

Full Moon in Leo + Lunar Eclipse [Audio Meditation + Journaling Prompts]

Image Astrology

PLEASE NOTE, WHILE IT IS GREAT TO DO THIS WITH THE FULL MOON, YOU CAN REALLY DO JUST THE MEDITATION OR THE ENTIRE EXERCISE ANYTIME...

There sky is so intense right now, I’ve been finding it difficult to even process what is happening and really understanding what this Lunar Eclipse, Full Moon in Leo was all about. For myself, I realized I needed to break it down into smaller parts, as a lot of the reports I was reading were feeling overwhelming. I almost wasn’t going to put out a ritual, as I felt overwhelmed by it all. So I tried to simplify it all, and find what resonated with me. I am not an astrologer, and so it is my take on what I understand and what I am feeling.

What technically is a Supermoon, Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse and what are the effects?

“Lunar eclipses can occur only during a full moon, and this one is extra special because it's also a supermoon. A supermoon occurs when the moon is full and closest to Earth in orbit. The moon will be in perfect alignment with the sun and Earth, with the moon on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun. 

Earth will cast two shadows on the moon during the eclipse. The penumbra is the partial outer shadow, and the umbra is the full, dark shadow.

When the full moon moves into Earth's shadow, it will darken, but it won't disappear. Sunlight passing through Earth's atmosphere will light the moon in a dramatic fashion, turning it red.” Taken from this article at CNN

Why does it matter that Moon is in Leo, and the Sun is entering Aquarius?

Leo, is a sign often associated with creativity, courage, and passion. It is also a sign that wants to fit in and often thinks of themselves and looses sight of the larger collective. Aquarius is a sign associated with being progressive, original, independent and inventive. Very connected to bigger picture and the outside world, wanting everyone to rise.

How are we effected by this Full Moon being so connected to Uranus?

Uranus is the planet of change and transformation. It can be quick and unexpected changes and opportunities.

Ok, so what does all of this mean?

As I have writen before the Full Moon, ( This one being even more intense due to all of the above), brings light on the things we sometimes don’t see, often the things we are trying to keep hidden. Many refer to this as our shadow. While this can be incredibly emotional, it is also a time of great release. When we don’t pay attention to our shadow and don’t become friends with it, it actually becomes more powerful in blocking us from the things we truly want. The Full Moon is a beautiful time to get quiet, to get honest with yourself…Allow the light to show you the things you have been trying to hide from. From there, you can learn to integrate them and therefore loosen their powerful hold over you.

It is a time to look at what we are doing for ourselves? What are we doing for others? What are our dreams? How are we showing up for ourelves? How are we showing up for others? And as the light shines, what are your beliefs that are holding you back? Where are you not taking action to go after what you want for yourself? Where are you focusing on yourself too much and not thinking of others? How can you show up better for yourself and others?

I made the following Meditation + Journaling prompts to help you take advantage of all the energies in the sky. Go some place quiet and private. Maybe light a candle, incense and dim the lights. Have a journal and a pen near by.

When you are finished,  pull out your journal and acknowledge the things that came up for you. You might want to reread the questions above. Writing out what you are ready to release, each thing that came up. Take your time, feeling and releasing what you are tired of carrying around with you. Get honest. Allow the energy of Uranus to change things up. Release whatever it is that is holding you back.

 Now it is time  to clear your crystals, which you can do with Palo Santo, Sage, Sound, dirt, water etc...If you use anything with smoke, you can swirl the smoke around each crystal as you say aloud what it is that you are ready to release. If you are using any of the other clearing tools, you can do the same thing. To get more information check out THIS VIDEO where we talk about crystals, moons and clearing....When you are finished put your crystals either outside or near a window for 24 hours...

New Moon Ritual [Playlist]

Please note, while it is great to do this with the New Moon, you can really start ANYTIME, so don't make excuses why you can't start TODAY!

As we begin the New Year, the general energy is to start something, change something, begin again, reset…All the redos, and today we are lucky enough to have the power of the New Moon in Capricorn to help us along.

Often people who are not able to create the life that they want, aren’t really clear on what that life is. When we are trying to direct the ship, we need to have an idea of where the destination might be. It can change and morph, but we move faster and with more flow when we have gotten quiet enough and brave enough to figure out where it is we want to go.

Once we get clear on what it is we want to create, we can start taking steps, even the smallest ones, in order to get closer to it and have more answers. There are many different paths that you can take in order to move towards where you want to go, and the partial solar eclipse will help you find a pathway that could be in more flow towards achieving all that you want.

“Be brave enough to look at what you really want and paiteint enough to acknowledge the steps it’ll take to get there” Jessica Lanyadoo

The energy of Capricorn can help us to stay disciplined and focused. Our big goals can be overwhelming to think about, but if we start breaking it down to smaller steps, things that we can easily start ticking off, we will start to grow our courage muscle. We’ll start to step into our vision even stronger and it can start to feel effortless.

The truth is, you don't have to have any connection to the moon to enjoy these rituals.  At the very least, it is a nice reminder every few weeks to check in on what you want to bring in and what you want to let go of..

NEW MOON RITUAL

I'm start by creating a sacred space.  For me, that is by my Altar, with all my crystals, which many of you might have already seen on this Instagram Post .  I will light incense and a candle and  play my New Moon Playlist

With your crystals, candle and incense lit, listen to the Play List Take your time. sit quiet with your eyes closed listening, taking long deep breaths.  Feel your breath moving through your body. With your eyes closed, allow them to gently roll back and up towards your third eye. Allow yourself to see whatever comes up. Getting quiet. Going in...   Reflect. Think about what has been standing in your way, and see yourself moving it.  Then start focusing on all that you want to bring in. When you already, grab your jouranl and start writing. You can do this is any way that feels comfortable. This can be lists, descriptions, anything that gets you into the feeling of what you want to bring forth.  Get excited about all that is coming. Start to think about the small steps you can use to move forward. If you want to be more guided, you can use the journal exercise I posted awhile back HERE. It will be a different playlist, but a guided journal experience.

The first Mantra (Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo) is for tuning in.  Connecting to your highest self and the line of teachers that have come before you.  Tapping into your divine flow...

When you are done, take out your Palo Santo or Sage and start cleansing yourself and your crystals. I start with myself and the move onto my crystals,  Starting  at my feet and swirling in the smoke.  Releasing it all.  Chanting along with the third song:

Har Har Har Har Gobinde is the mantra of the second and third song.  This Mantra is said to fixe the mind to prosperity and gives power to break down barriers of the past. It converts fear to determination and invokes guidance. (source 3HO)

 "This mantra is to fix the mental to prosperity or power. It will produce money, it will come. Opportunities will come. Richness will come..." - Yogi Bhajan  This isn't just about money, it is whatever it is that you are asking to call in.  
"When you chant this mantra with the breath of life, it's quick, it's purposeful, and it brings in what you need to bring in..." - Yogi Bhajan

Complete Mantra:

Har Har Har Har Gobinday, 
Har Har Har Har Mukunday
Har Har Har Har Udaaray
Har Har Har Har Apaaray
Har Har Har Har Hariang
Har Har Har Har Kariang
Har Har Har Har Nir-naamay
Har Har Har Har Akaamay

Repeating it along with the song as you let the smoke cover your energy.  Feel the blessing of letting things that don't serve you go, and then feeling all that you can be. End at the crown , above the head.

When you’re done, place your crystals out in the moon light. I like to let my crystals  sit out for a minimum of 24 hours…When you take them back in, they will have the power of your intentions. If you can’t put them outside, put them near a window.

Above, is just what I do, but feel free to tweak it and make it your own.  Tap into what feels good for you. 

Please note, the energy of the new moon is not just on the actual new moon, so if you can't do it tonight, don't you fret, you have 3 days before and after...

New Years' 40 Day Meditation to Learn the Lessons of the Past

Photo John Von pamer

Photo John Von pamer

The beginning of the year is a great time to reflect.  For me, today is about meditating and journaling. The start of the year is the perfect time to start a new habit. Yogi Bhajan says practicing every day for 40 days straight will break any negative habits that block you from the expansion possible through the kriya or mantra.

I am in love with Kirtan Kriya in general, and the Cross-Heart version is extra special. I find it to be incredibly clearing and peaceful.  This meditation works on The Negative Mind,  The Negative Mind is there to protect us, but when it is too loud, it can stop us from moving forward and taking action.  When The Negative Mind is too quiet, we can find ourselves repeating mistakes of the past.  This is a great meditation for bringing The Negative Mind into balance.  You will be able to learn quickly from your past, and see new ways to clean it up and avoid repeating the same lessons.  I am going to add this meditation to my daily meditation for the next 40 days.  I invite you to do this along with me and let me know how it goes!

"The Hemispheres will balance; the past will be processed and dumped; and insecurity will vaporize." Yogi Bhajan

I will start by being in a sacred space, for me that is by my Altar.  Next, I  will light my candle and my incense and sit quiet for a Moment.  Then I will begin...

I created an audio file that will include tuning in, a quick basic spine series warm up and then 11 minutes of Cross Heart Kirtan Kriya, followed by 3 minutes of the Gong.  There will be music and I will be calling out all the cues.  You can listen to the audio below.

TUNING IN  

“Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo” said three times. Ong Namo: I  bow to the Creative Wisdom, Guru Dev Namo: I bow to the Divine Teacher within. 

Ad Guray Nameh Jugad Guray Nameh Sat Guray Nameh Siri Guru Devay Nameh said three times. Ad Guray Nameh: I bow to the primal wisdom. Jugad Guray Nameh: I bow to the wisdom through the ages .Sat Guray Nameh:  I bow to the true wisdom. Siri Guru Devay Nameh: I bow to the great unseen wisdom

WARM UP-BASIC SPINE

  1. Quick WARM UP of Basic Spine Flex. Come into Easy Pose (a comfortable cross-legged sitting position). Inhale as you lift the chest up high and tilt the pelvis forward. Then exhale, round the lower back, and rock the pelvis back. Remember to lift the chest up high on each inhale and keep the chin level to the ground in both positions.

  2. This is good to lubricate the spine, and move the energy. It adjusts the spine, strengthens the nervous and reproductive systems, and brings the emotions into balance. It is not part of the meditation, but beneficial to warm up the spine.

To Finish: 

Inhale and suspend your breath, roll your eyes back up and become completely still. Then relax.  (Adapted from KRI and The Mind, Yogi Bhajan)

JOURNALING

After you finish the meditation, I invite you to put on THIS PLAYLIST  As you listen, reflect upon 2018. What were some of the lessons you learned from things that might have turned out differently than you had wanted. When were there times that you had wished you could have reacted differently. And continue to go through all the things that no longer serve you from 2018 and then spend the remainder thinking about all that you want to call in to replace those habits, people, thoughts, beliefs, etc…. Get as detailed as you can as you write all of this out. After that, start to think and write about what are some of the things that you could do starting today to move closer to what you want to call in. Get clear and specific. Take your time… 

Happy New Year, may 2019 be filled with happiness, joy, good health, abundance, compassion and love.

The Last Full Moon Ritual of the Year

Please note, while it is great to do this with the Full Moon, you can really start ANYTIME, so don't make excuses why you can't start TODAY!

Here we are, at the last Full Moon of 2018. This has been a very intense year, to say the least. We are so lucky to end it with the Full Moon in Cancer. The energy of this Full Moon is not only about releasing, but also about allowing to bring in what you truly desire. It is said to be a moon of infinite possibilities.

 As I have said before, I am not an astrologer, but I am very connected to the moon cycles, and the more I pay attention, the more things start to flow.  When you do rituals with the moon cycles, you have the pull of the sky on your side.  This month with Cancer, we have extra help in truly leaving all the things we no longer wish to carry on in 2018 and bringing to us all that we desire in 2019.  It is a time for getting honest, getting clear and taking action. 

Image Juice It, Blend It Live It- John Van Pamer

Image Juice It, Blend It Live It- John Van Pamer

So, for this full moon, I invite you to take some time and go in. Sitting by your Altar, or a place where you have privacy, get out your crystals, light your candle and incense and begin. I recorded a meditation with a journal prompt to help you focus on what you are ready to release and what you are ready to bring in. You can use the recording and if you want to continue to journal, you can use the full playlist I made HERE

Use  two different pages for what you are releasing(A) and what you are choosing to bring in the new year(B).  

When you're done, look through your A list and write out 3 steps you can take to let go of some of those things before the end of the year. Get detailed. Then look at B list and do the same thing. What are three small steps you could take to bring any of what your wrote forward for 2019. You can keep going with this, every time you take action steps, write down more you can take. You’ll start to notice that small little steps are actually where all the big change actually takes place.

When you are done, take out your crytslas and you clearer of choice and repeat out loud the things that you will let go of and follow it up with what you will put in its’place.

For this entry, I won't burn or though away the journal entry, as I may get inspired to revisit and add more steps to release throughout the year.  It will also be a nice thing to look back on for the next Full Moon...

Please  let me know how it goes! 

If you’re ready to really let go of all that is holding you back and want a little extra help, I would love to see you in New York City in person, or virtually anywhere Schedule a time here. Looking forward to connecting!

3 Kundalini Meditations I Love [Audio Files + Playlists Included]

Image  A Wild Dove

I am often asked what is the best Kundalini meditation to start with and so I thought I would take the time to combine my 3 of my favorites.

I suggest you try all 3, and then pick 1 or more and continue on for 40 days. Don’t Skip a day. I feel it is the most powerful to do it first thing in the morning, but do it when it is best for YOU. I just say, complete it before midnight each day.

Each audio file will lead you through the instructions, tune you in and call you out. So don’t worry about picking up all the instructions in the writings. The written meditations and pictures are all from 3ho.org and KRI

If your Sadhana is more important to you than your neuroses, you are fine. If your neuroses are more important to you than your Sadhana, you are not.
— Yogi Bhajan

 

START BY TUNING IN 

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with the palms of both hands and fingers are completely touching. The outer edge of the mound of the thumb is pressed into the sternum.

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo 3 times

I bow to the Creative Wisdom, I bow to the Divine Teacher within

Ad Guray Nameh Jugad Guray Nameh Sat Guray Nameh Siri Guru Devay Nameh 3 times

I bow to the primal wisdom. I bow to the wisdom through the ages.

I bow to the true wisdom.I bow to the great unseen wisdom.

Kundalini Yoga Meditation: Dealing with Your Own Mind

Originally taught by Yogi Bhajan on January 9, 1998

Posture:Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine.

Breath: Close off your right nostril with your right thumb and inhale deeply through your left nostril. Exhale completely through your mouth.

Image 3HO

Image 3HO

Time: Continue for 6 minutes.

To End: Inhale deeply, interlace your fingers and stretch them over your head palms up. Hold your breath for 10-15 seconds while you stretch your spine upward. Exhale and relax.

Mind is a link between Infinity and you. When the soul got the body, the soul asked God, 'What is my link with you, my Lord?' And God said, 'Mind.'

Mind can take you into any thought, beyond thought, and unto Infinity. Mind can take you into any dungeon, any pit, and any negativity. Mind has no limit in its own self. But mind is your servant. If the mind becomes your master, you don't have a chance. It is very essential in yoga that we know our own mind.

Meditation for Invoking the Wealth of The Universe: Sobagh Kriya

This was the first Kundalini Meditation I taught and it was to Gabby Bernstein’s Level 2 Coaching students. They all loved it and still write to me telling me how much they enjoyed it and how much it changed their relationship with prosperity!

The audio file, includes music and the cues for when to switch meditations...Enjoy! 

The audio file starts with TUNING IN

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo 3 times

I bow to the Creative Wisdom, I bow to the Divine Teacher within

Ad Guray Nameh Jugad Guray Nameh Sat Guray Nameh Siri Guru Devay Nameh 3 times

I bow to the primal wisdom. I bow to the wisdom through the ages.

I bow to the true wisdom.I bow to the great unseen wisdom.

Then a 3 minute WARM UP of cat cow going as fast as you can.  This is good to lubricate the spine, and move the energy.  It adjusts the spine, strengthens the nervous and reproductive systems, and brings the emotions into balance. It also helps to move energy up the spine to the upper Chakras to enhance meditation. It is one of the most common things to do during morning mediation, to wake up your spine and your Kundalini energy, for vitality all day long.


MANTRA Mentally Inhale SAT Exhale NAM at the end, inhale hold stretching the chest up, exhale, round the back. Go to child's pose, far head and arms on the mat, hands in prayer pose stretched above the head

 

EYES Closed, focusing on the brow pint, (Third eye)

The cat cow is not part of the mediation, but a nice way to warm up. I will also call out when it is time to change.  Please feel free to email with any questions.

Meditation #5 (3 Minutes)

NO MANTRA

MOVEMENT AND BREATH Put your arms at shoulder level, left hand under, right over. Breathe long and deep. Don't let the hands fall. They should be parallel to the ground; that' the law. Keep your spine straight; sit correctly. Do nothing; just breathe one breath a minute: 20 seconds to inhale, 20 seconds to hold, 20 seconds to exhale. If you can’t do 20, 20, 20, then do 10, 10 10 or 5, 5 5.

This is a complete set. It is called Sobagh Kriya.

“If there is a misfortune written by the will of God, by doing this set you will make it into good fortune. I'm not saying "man-made." I'm saying if God Himself has written that you shall live under misfortune, by doing Sobagh Kriya you can tum your misfortune into prosperity, good fortune, and good luck.” Yogi Bhajan

KIRTAN KRIYA (Sa Ta Na Ma Meditation)

This is often what I suggest to most people to start with. You can feel the difference in your nervous system immediately! I made an audile file that includes calling you in, and taking you out,  You will follow along with the song, saying it out loud at first, then whisper, then silent, then whisper, then out loud.  

This meditation brings a total mental balance to the individual psyche. Vibrating on each fingertip alternates the electrical polarities. The index and ring fingers are electrically negative, relative to the other fingers. This causes a balance in the electromagnetic projection of the aura. Practicing this meditation is both a science and an art. It is an art in the way it molds consciousness and in the refinement of sensation and insight it produces. It is a science in the tested certainty of the results each technique produces.


Posture: Sit straight in Easy Pose.

Eyes: Meditate at the Brow Point.

Mantra: Produce the five primal sounds (panj shabd): S, T, N, M, A, in the original word form:

SAA: Infinity, cosmos, beginning

TAA: Life, existence

NAA: Death, change, transformation

MAA: Rebirth

Each repetition of the entire mantra takes 3 to 4 seconds. This is the cycle of Creation. From the Infinite comes life and individual existence. From life comes death or change. From death comes the rebirth of consciousnes to the joy of the Infinite through which compassion leads back to life.

Mudra: This mantra can be done in many different mudras. Most common is to begin in Gyan Mudra. The elbows are straight while chanting, and the mudra changes as each fingertip touches in turn the tip of the thumb with firm pressure.

On SAA, touch the first (Jupiter) finger.

On TAA, touch the second (Saturn) finger.

On NAA, touch the third (Sun) finger.

On MAA, touch the fourth (Mercury) finger.

Chant in three languages of consicousness:

Human: normal or loud voice (the world)

Lovers: strong whisper (longing to belong)

Divine: mentally; silent (Infinity)

To End: Follow with one 1 minute of stretching the arms over your head and spreading the fingers wide, shaking them out, circulating the energy, inhaling and exhaling 3 times. Relax.

Comments: Each time the mudra is closed by joining the thumb with a finger, the ego “seals” the effect of that mudra in the consciousness. The effects are as follows:

1st finger: Gyan Mudra Knowledge

2nd finger: Shuni Mudra Wisdom, intelligence, patience

3rd finger: Surya Mudra Vitality, energy of life

4th finger: Buddhi Mudra Ability to communicate

Meditation for Eliminating Anxiety

Jamie-graber.jpg

 

As I started to record the meditation for this upcoming Full Moon, it quickly turned into a meditation to help with anxiety.. As I have said before, Full Moons can bring light on things that we are trying to keep hidden. Things we don’t normally see, or even allow ourselves to see. Often around Full Moons, more people will reach out and come see me to help with their anxiety. They notice that the full moon can often make their anxiety feel heightened.

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”

Albert Einstein

Anxiety often happens because we are either re-experiencing something that happened in the past, or we are fearful about something that might happen in the future. One of the best ways to get ourselves out of the spin, is to get firmly grounded in the present.

I created the below meditation, to get you deeply in the body and able to relax. Allow your mind to stop wandering and instead fully feel your body. Get present in what you are physically feeling in your body.

You can do this meditation anywhere and anytime.

Once we are grounded, we can often look at ourselves, our stories, our worries with a different perspective. Now take out your journal and just start to go in. You can use this PLAYLIST See what is coming up for you.  What is that version of your story are you ready to release?  How can you see your situations that are causing you anxiety differently?  You can use this playlist whenever you want to calm your mind. Allow the mantras to soothe you.

Once you have completed the journal portion, you are ready to clear your crystals, which you can do with Palo Santo, Sage, Sound, dirt, water etc... For a quick lesson on clearing and crystals check out my Instagram Highlights and click on the one for Clearing. To get more information check out THIS VIDEO where we talk about crystals, moons and clearing...
