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...
As I always say, I am not an astrologist, but I deeply feel the energy of the moon cycles. The Full Moon in Aquarius is about community and the collective. We can often get tied into what everyone else thinks, and wants and lose track of what our inner voice is saying. The truth is, if we can show up for ourselves, it allows others to do the same. In doing that, we all can tap into our own authentic magic and create the world we want to live in. When you are in your magic, you can have the larger positive effect on those around you.
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.
Watch the video above for tips on tuning in...

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.
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.
Now you will ask me if a mind can be controlled. Yes. Not only can your mind be controlled, your life can be controlled. A situation can be controlled. Sometimes you get into very, very, very ugly situations. If you have the practice to switch your breath to the left nostril, you will get out of it in two seconds. The moment you start breathing with your left nostril, your elementary self will come into play. The moment your elementary self comes into play, your totality of the mind becomes one unit to confirm and it puts out the radiance shield of your body and you will immediately become very pleasant and positive rather than angry and reactive.
Some people train themselves to breathe through any nostril they choose. But many of you have not practiced that, and therefore you use your hand to close your right nostril. Long, deep breathing through the left nostril is good for the heart and good for the health. It will calm you down.
Normally after you have done this exercise for two minutes you will start feeling bored. Negative mind is in action: 'What are you doing this for? This is a babyish thing. We could have done something better.' In any exercise which touches the mind, a person starts getting upset in exactly two and half minutes. That's the rule of thumb. The mind doesn't want to be caught. It wants to swing. But there are some people like us who feel that it's hard work to control the mind, and once we control the mind, then we can control the whole world.

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. Acknowledging what you truly want, and not what you think others want. Get clear.
Now it is time to clear your crystals, which 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...
If you finish journaling and feel called you can chant along and do the mudras for the Antar Naad Mudra for the Full Moon . Watch the 3 minute video. It will show you how to TUNE IN and the mudra. The mudra part of the meditation is only done on the Full Moon.
