Throw Off Stress & Uncover Your Strength
"...All the strength of the Universe is within you. It cannot be found outside. Those who do not develop strength from inside cannot get it from outside either." ~Yogi Bhajan.
This is a fun set of exercises or kriya. It's very systematic. This Kriya can be found in Transformation Volume 1: Mastering the Self.
You'll start by gathering energy/prana/pressure build into the hands with the first exercise. You'll feel it as you alternate between the 2 mudras as fast as you can.
You, then, use that energy to bless/clear/charge yourself: heart, mind, navel.
Then you shake it off, changing your brain.
Open up the ribs with some shoulder dancing and chanting the mantra Pavan, Pavan.
Here's some information on the full Pavan Pavan mantra.
The mantra is: Pavan Pavan Pavan Pavan, Par Para Pavan Guru, Pavan Guru Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru Pavan Guru.
Don't worry about getting the mantra perfect, just sing along the best you can. It's about the effort made, not about perfection.
You finish the set by grounding yourself with some inner thigh drumming.
A pretty simple way to throw off stress and uncover your strength if you ask me. Check it out.
Try it out. Tune in, do some warm-ups to prep the shoulders and to sit. If you need to extend the legs between exercise, do what you need to in order to stay in that meditative space. You're throwing off stress & uncovering your strength so do what you can.
Leave me some comments below about your experience or if you have any questions about the set. Can't wait to hear how it goes.
