Meditation for Intuition and Happiness

Jai Ram Kaur Hergo - Saturday, August 17, 2013


This is a meditation that was given to Buddha, then Siddhartha, by a great sadhu or saint who found him very weakened and unable to walk after fasting for 40 days. It is said that when Siddhartha could smile again the sadhu gave him this meditation to help nurture him back to health.

Do it when you feel the need to focus and tune into your intuition, to increase the rays of your positive mind. The gentle pull across your chest encourages your heart centre to open and radiate.

Sit in easy pose with an elevated spine. Bend your arms at the elbows, the elbows relaxed against your sides. Extend the index and middle fingers and fold in your ring and pinkie fingers. Hold them down with your thumbs. You might recognise this mudra from depictions of Buddha.

Let your focus gather naturally at your brow point, between your eyebrows and slightly in.

Breathe slowly and consciously and chant silently Sa Ta Na Ma while focussing at the brow point. Project these syllables out from your brow, letting your thoughts be cleared.

Let all thoughts and feelings come and go. Keep returning gently to the focus and the mantra. Keep the hands pulled back gently to maintain the opening across your chest.

Keep going for 6 to 11 minutes.

Breathe in and out deeply 3 times.

Rest in the feeling that follows for as long as you like.
