For Kundalini yogis, the impact of sound and vibration is the teacher or Guru. We are united with the Infinite through the vibration of the sound current or Naad. Kundalini yoga prepares your body and mind and enhances your hearing capacity so that you can recognise and hear the sound current.

I am asked many times when I play the Gong, how did I learn to play? It is a mixture of developing my intuition over the last 15 years, to play intuitively. But I feel that that would not have been enough. The real key was when I learnt and chanted mantra, particularly the Long Ek Ong Kars for 4 years. This enhanced my hearing capacity to allow me to hear the sound current.

Yogi Bhanjan reminds us, that our minds are not under our control and mantra is something that can bring the mind under our control.

Let’s look at the word Mantra. Man, mind and Tra projection. Whatever sets the projection of the mind is called Tra. Tra brings harmony, Tral means harmonious notes and Tra is the projected wave length of harmony.

If I say fire the arrow at a precise longitude and latitude, I am giving you the Tra or projection for that arrow. This is the same with the mind the Tra sets the projection of where the mind wants to get to.

Mantra is a cyclable, a key, a code, a sound which fixes the projection of the mind. It projects through the mind that secret code.

When we understand that on a quantum level everything in the Universe is in a constant state of vibration manifested in either, light, sound and energy, we understand how powerful chanting mantra can be for us. This is not a religious thing or even a mystical thing, it is a practical technology that works.

Start changing what your mind is broadcasting, by chanting instead of thinking in mind loops. Start listening to your mind, emotions and also what you say. Does your projection really reflect you? Or is it , the negative self, the victim self, the judgemental self, the worrier self? And is this what you want to be broadcasting and resonating? If it is not, be the change you want to see.

The purpose of chanting is to have a direct connection with the soul or infinite self that resides beyond your mind. You chant and your mind hears the sound of infinity through your voice, there is no higher meditation you can do. Start chanting Sat nam to yourself. Even this simple phrase of truth or true self will start making a change to your mind and its projection.

The Yogic Science of Thought

20130910-123522.jpg

Studies on the brain show that when a thought wave is created, it is a weak, dim signal. For many years it was believed that thoughts only had influence on our own brain.

Subsequently they have discovered even though each one of our thoughts is a weak signal, it has the ability to immediately attached on to our electromagnetic field.

Electromagnetic fields hold information. That is how information is recorded on a computer hard drive. It is also how we use to record programs on magnetic tape. It is all done by electromagnetics. So after you drop your body (die) all that is left is an electromagnetic field with the recording of all the thoughts, emotions and experiences you have had.

When our electromagnetic fields come into contact with another electromagnetic field (if you are not sensitive enough) you will not know if you are having your own thoughts or those of your neighbours. Our thoughts can affect other people. Most of the time our thoughts are so dispersed that they are very ineffective. But when we focus like during prayer or focussed visualisation it allows a thought to fully permeate our electromagnetic field which allows us to influence the electromagnetic fields of others. When you have a thought about someone it is a bit like phoning their mobile number, we are connecting to their electromagnetic field. Einstein also discovered that no matter how many millions of miles you put between 2 electrons they will still mimic each other. Send me a good thought and I will receive it.  When I see the beauty in someone, that thought of beauty is going to permeate my aura making me seem beautiful to others, even if I have lots of other faults.

When you chant during class, you are sending a message to your electromagnetic field to connect with your infinite generic identity, the infinite electromagnetic field or as we say the higher self. Imaging done on the electromagnetic field after singing and chanting show it glowing. Loose yourself in mantra or uplifting music and your electromagnetic fields gets saturated with those high vibrations and suddenly you are feeling amazing and so is everyone else around you. This is why the Dervish whirl, with their heads tipped to one side to recycle the kundalini energy that is following through their bodies.

 

 

Practical Lesson

Next time you are in mental dis ease whether it was triggered by someone or an event, cut through it by getting lost in a positive mantra. When a lot of negative thoughts come to you like this: (-). Cut it in the center, what does it become? Positive: (+). So we pick up one mantra which is a positive sound thought and repeat it until the minus becomes a plus. Try the Om Namo Guru Dev Namo mantra by Snatam Kaur Khalsa, I will post it on our facebook page this week. Start living your life through a conscious decision to understand your mind.

NAAD, The Science of Sound

MANTRA

“Mantras are not small things, mantras have power. They are the mind vibration in relationship to the Cosmos. The science of mantra is based on the knowledge that sound is a form of energy having structure, power, and a definite predictable effect on the chakras and the human psyche.” ~ Yogi Bhajan

There is a vibratory frequency that corresponds to everything in the Universe. Happiness or sorrow, joy or regret are vibratory frequencies in the mind. When we chant a mantra we are choosing to invoke the positive power contained in those particular syllables. Whether it’s for prosperity, peace of mind, increasing intuition, or any other possible benefits inherent in mantras, simply by chanting them we are setting vibrations into motion that shall have an effect. It doesn’t actually matter if we understand the meaning of the sounds or not.

Chanting mantra produces specific vibratory frequency within the body. The vibratory frequency of a mantra draws to you whatever you are vibrating. You are like a magnet attracting vibrations to you by what you send out. As a vibration, a mood, a state of being that results from chanting, mantra is compatible with all belief systems.

Chanting is an amazing and powerful part of the practice of Kundalini Yoga. When we sing or repeat mantras, we call the heavens down to the Earth. The heavens begin to manifest in our own hearts. That is why chanting makes people feel so good, even if they do not understand the meaning of the words.

What is so truly amazing about sound, mantra, and chanting is that each one of us holds this power of transformation within us. We don’t have to go to a place or to another person to access this power. Our very own body is the instrument of transformation.

When you chant listen to the sound your voice makes and how it sounds in your body.

 
-Yogi Bhajan, 2/13/01, Espanola, NM

Listening Meditation

The first technique is a listening practice that Yogi Bhajan taught me in 1989 and remains a foundation of my personal daily sadhana to this day. This practice develops intuition, stills the monkey mind, and enhances the flow of communication. It is also a fabulous foundation for developing your capacity to chant more deeply. Here it is:

Posture: Sitting quietly, eyes closed and focused gently at the brow point.

Focus: Listen deeply. Isolate and identify each sound that you hear.

If, for example, a car passes outside, mentally identify the sound by stating “a car is passing outside”… “I can hear the hissing of water underneath the tires”. Then move on to the next sound…a fly buzzing, the sound of your breath through your nostrils as you inhale and exhale, the sound of someone clearing their throat. If you feel that you have identified every sound possible, continue isolating every sound that strikes your ears, even if you have already identified it once. Break it down into its subtle parts. Listen to the sounds within the sounds, the sounds within you, the sounds near to you, and the sounds very far away.

Allow every sound. Some sounds may seem unpleasant. Listen to them anyway. You may find that you tend to block certain sounds. Turn your awareness to those sounds, open up your listening ears and listen to them as well.

If you find that your mind starts to wander, simply return to deeply listening.

Time: Continue isolating and identifying every sound for 3 to 11 minutes.

What is Emotional Detoxing

What are Toxic Emotions

We detoxify continuously throughout life. We process food, thoughts, and all forms of energy. When that flow is continuous and clear, we are steady and flexible.

We are not taught how to deal with our negative emotions. We are either in denial or reaction to our life stories.

Life leaves us weighted down under the ash of metabolism and the remnants of old emotions this get stored in our physical body.  Mainly in our fat cells, organs and the fascia (the thin white membrane of tissue which surrounds our muscles and organs) which tightens and gets out of alignment.  Therefore when we have a detox whatever we have swept under the carpet rises up to the surface and comes out sometimes as an illness, pain in our body or uncomfortable, negative feelings.

In our everyday life we are unconscious of this discomfort because we can hide behind our normal habits and addictions.

How can you do an Emotional Detox

©      Work with the physical body through yoga kriyas and asanas.  This helps release tight fascia which carries memory    of past trauma both physical and mental.

©      Mantras allow you to reduce mental noise and cut our mental negativity.

©      Breath work will allows you to get back to your centre.

©      Step back from the busy-ness of your mind.  Feel the underlying mood of the body and mind to get a sense of where you are at.

©      Help your mind get a prespective.  Create a habit of stopping your mind relating to your emotional mood swings, but notice them without judgment when they arise. Learn to relate to the reality of you, which is your breath not your mood.

©      The more we nurture these mental habits which support our health, happiness and well being the more the causes of the mood swings, negative emotions will start to change to reflect your will.

©      External circumstances not governing your internal attitude.

©      Mental consciousness is your tool to change.  Be the change you want to see.facebook keep calm and do yoga
