Physically, the third chakra is related to our navel center or solar plexus, the area behind and around the belly button. The bodily locations that correspond to this chakra are the pancreas, liver, gall bladder, spleen, digestive system and muscles. If we are not fully connected to the third chakra, we can have troubles with these areas and organs including things like diabetes, hepatitis, indigestion, and ulcers. According to Kundalini Yoga, strengthening the abdominal muscles is a great place to start to bring balance to the third chakra. Read more.

Gossip is never innocent!

I received this article in a newsletter from Siri-Gian Khalsa today and I wanted to share it with you because it seems to me that we all need to be aware of this from time to time. Myself included!

”GOSSIP—The Black Art!

February 17, 2015

It is a well-known fact that one’s own psychological energy moves to its target without the constraints of time and space.  Consequently, if you are having a negative mind-storm about someone on the other side of the world who perhaps wronged you, or against someone in your office or family that you “just hate,” do you suppose that just flies off in the air somehow?”

Balance the Earth and Heavens

Prithvee hai akaash hai guroo raam daas hai ((ISHT SODHANA MANTRA)

This mantra balances the Earth and Heavens. It represents the struck sounds of Earth (pritvi) and the unstruck sounds of Heaven (akash), crowning with the protection of the Neutral Mind, Guru Ram Das. (Hai means “is.”) This mantra can penetrate the cosmos, transcending past, present, and future.

Kundalini Yoga for the Heart

Kundalini Yoga for the Heart
(pdf)

The fourth chakra is the Heart Chakra, or Heart Center. It is called Anahata. It represents the opening of feelings, compassion, and the capacity to love. At the Heart Chakra there is no conflict; Heavens and Earth come together in balance. Heart-centered compassion is universal and unconditional.

“Hate nobody; love everybody. It won’t cost you anything. Love never costs anything. Love is the most selfish act. It gives you so much protection, grace, and radiance. It doesn’t give you any smallness or suffering. The attitude of conscious living is to love and give grace to someone worthy of your trust. Do not seek anything from people. Give love instead, and rely on God.”

Healthy Body Kriya

healthybody

Build your circle with the arm movements.
Feel your finger tips as the outer edge of your circle.
With each movement, clear and claim the space in your circle as your own.
Between exercises stand for a bit and let the energy adjust.
Be grounded in your body. Feel connected to the Earth.
Then shake your whole body and release stuck energy.

Meditation For The Neutral Mind –
Mute The Negative Chatter Of Your Thoughts
And Experience Your Soul

The neutral mind lives for the touch of vastness, where we can experience our own soul. Carrying us to the infinite, it quiets all negative thoughts and mental chatter. When we live, breath and act from the neutral mind ME becomes WE. The neutral mind hears the truth, and lives by it. Call on the higher self through the neutral mind, penetrate through all barriers with this meditation.

The Three Minds are meant to work in harmony with each other. When subconscious stress patterns lock the mind you are subject to the minds intrigues and your mind is against you. Yet you need these three minds, the negative, positive, and neutral mind all – equally.
Develop the mind through meditation to experience neutrality and strength and reach to the subtle, refined, and spiritual dimensions of your life and your relationships.
