In these tumultuous times - with natural disasters, political turmoil, environmental toxins and social change - it is important to keep your immune system, nervous system and aura strong. Most Kundalini Yoga kriyas focus on one or all three of these areas. Keeping a steady practice of healthy habits are more important than ever right now - whether you practice yoga and meditation, exercise, sitting still and listening, praying, sleeping well, sharing time and foods with friends, etc.
Celestial Communication is an easy way to keep your aura strong - the movements of the upper body build up the aura, the energy field around you which protects you from your environments, illness, harmful people and situations. A strong aura also helps to keep your sense of self and identity when their is rapid change and uncertainty around you. And, very importantly, keeps you from becoming overwhelmed. Celestial Communication also supports a healthy immune system when you really stretch your arms and activate the lymph system with your movements. Celestial Communications using vigorous movements are especially helpful to the immune system.
In response to the events in Japan and the issues of nuclear radiation, 3HO has shared a Meditation for Atomic Radiation. Yogi Bhajan said about this meditation, "If your inside is in turmoil, this meditation will prevent you from dying. It can be done anytime, and its effects will be to calm you, to energize you, and to relax you."
3HO has also shared nutritional information and baths to counter the effects of radiation. The truth is that most of us are affected by radiation all of the time. We are exposed to radiation with airplanes, x-rays and more. The good news is that there are simple foods to help; in addition to seaweed and miso, onions, garlic, carrots and beets help the body to handle and process radiation. Baths are another way to remove radiation and chemicals from the body. I have tried all of the baths that you can learn about in this link, and have found them very helpful to my overall health.
If you would like to try any of the meditations from the "Survival Kit" Yogi Bhajan gave, which is currently out of print, 3HO has also provided these as a pdf file. These include the meditations to prepare for an earthquake, to rebalance after an earthquake, and several more to handle challenging times. I am so grateful for these incredible meditations, and that Yogi Bhajan shared them with us for these times!
Prayers for peace and healing light to surround our mother earth and its people.
Many blessings to you all,
