Note: Before starting a Class, Mantra, or Kriya Tune In!

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo, Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo, Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo,

Anything that leaves you stunned and unable to think, you don't know what to do or what to do first.

This page covers everything from being locked out of your online checking account or an earthquake, tornados, hurricanes, and radiation exposure.

One minute breath

Sit straight, tune in:
  • Close your eyes 9/10 while looking at the tip of your nose.

  • Inhale very slowly for 20 seconds.

  • Hold the breath in for 20 seconds.

  • Exhale very slowly for 20 seconds.

  • (You never hold the breath out.)
  • Then with the next breath, you continue as above, and so on.

The time periods for the breath that are given above are the very optimum for this One Minute Breath exercise. Simply do the best that you can, approaching your limits without stressing yourself out.

Be sure to inhale first from your diaphragm, meaning your belly will move out first, causing that powerful horizontal muscle at the bottom of your fixed ribs--your diaphragm to move down.

On the exhale, reverse the process by moving the belly in, causing the diaphragm to push up against the lungs, and then fully empty the lungs. Make the breath continuous and even, trying not to let it be jerky.

Doing this One Minute Breath for 3 minutes, 11 minutes or 31 minutes creates a great single or daily Use when you need inner guidance, or things get confusing or too emotional, or you just want some peace or stress relief!

Make the Impossible Possible

Aad SuchBhayVersion

One day, Yogi Bhajan told his students, "Now suppose something happens (in) your life which you want to move and it's not moving. There is a block, which you want to move, and it's not moveable--- then chant the Aad Sach mantra. It's a lever. It is the biggest lever available to you among mantras." August 4, 1975

Aad Such, Jugaad Such, Hai-BhaySuch,
Naanak HoseeBhaySuch

You can do this 3 minutes, 5, 7 even 11, what ever you feel like doing.

(I chant it every day and the most amazing things keep happening. Every place I have been stuck, don't know what to do resolves itself. In an emergency, we can all use a little extra help. Sat Avtar Kaur)

Kirtan Kriya

Kirtan Kriya is one of the most important meditations in Kundalini Yoga.

Whatever you need at the moment, it will readjust and align you to bring balance into your mind and thus your life.

It is a catalyst for change because it is a very powerful spiritual cleanser.

You will be chanting: SA - TA - NA - MA

You focus on the 3rd eye and

touching the tip of each finger with the thumb tip, you chant:

Thumb and first finger - Sa - infinity
Thumb and 2nd finger - Ta - life
Thumb and 3rd finger (ring) - Na - change
Thumb and 4th finger (little) - Ma - rebirth

Continue repeating the sequence.

For 11 minutes:
2 minutes out loud
2 minutes whisper

3 minutes silent

2 minutes whisper
2 minutes out loud

For 31 minutes: 5 minutes out loud, 5 minutes whisper, 11 minutes silent, 5 minutes whisper, 5 minutes out loud.

You visualize the energy coming in through the top of the head and going out the 3rd eye. always starting with the index finger. To end, inhale, hold the breath for a few seconds, focus the eyes upward, exhale and relax. Practice for 11 to 31 minutes

Breath of Fire

The Breath of Fire is a powerful exercise that almost always increases energy. Just 3 minutes of BOF will increase your physical and mental energy.

To do the Breath of Fire, breathe through your nostrils rapidly. Do not pause between inhaling and exhaling. You should inhale by bringing your diaphragm down, instead of up. Breath from your diaphragm, and keep your chest relaxed. Focus your mental energy on your navel area.

The oxygen level actually increases during the Breath of Fire. BOF produces alpha rhythms in the brain. This is probably why the exercise is able to simultaneously create increased calmness and increased alertness. BOF also increases oxygen delivery to the brain and neuronal metabolism is improved. Use BOF for quick energy, the same way some people use a cup of coffee. Breath of Fire

Meditation for Surrender

Sit in a cross-legged meditation posture with hands in Gyan Mudra and eyes closed. Inhale deeply and chant the mantra, on one breath.

Wa-hay Guru
Wa-hay Guru
Wa-hay Wa-hay
Wa-hay Guru

Chant in a monotone for 11 minutes. Then inhale deeply and hold the breath while concentrating the energy at the top of your head. After 30 seconds exhale and relax. 

Listen to the sounds you are making and let them connect you with a divine sound within.

(When I started doing Meditation for Surrender, I found that I could accept what happened during the day. Accepting and dealing with the reality I was in, rather than wishing things were different. Sat Avtar Kaur)

Long Sat Nams

This is a mantra that I use every day and sometimes several times a day, it calms me down, brings clarity of mind and I have gotten most of my good ideas while doing it. It has saved me from going nuts. Computer work and website problems drive me nuts from time to time. You can do any where from 3 minutes to 30 or more, depending on what you need. It is truly wonderful.

Meditation When You Don't Know
What To Do

It coordinates both areas of the brain, gives you powerful insight. Though it looks simple, it solves many complications.


How to Do It:

Sit straight, cross-legged or in a chair. Relax the arms down by the side of the body.. Bend the elbows and raise the hands up and in until they meet at the level of the chest. The fingers of each hand are extended and joined in a relaxed way.

Cross the hands with both palms facing toward the chest. One palm rests in the other and the thumbs are crossed. The fingers point up at a comfortable angle. (The position of left and right hands is interchangeable for this exercise.) Look at the third eye, then bring the eyes to the tip of the nose.

Inhale through the nose,
then exhale through the nose.

Now, inhale through the mouth, (purse the lips - whistle)
and exhale through the mouth. (purse the lips - whistle)

Next, inhale through the nose,
and exhale through the mouth. (purse the lips - whistle)

Finally, inhale through the mouth, (purse the lips - whistle)
and exhale through the nose.

Continue this sequence. All breaths should be deep, complete, and powerful. When breathing through the mouth, purse the lips almost as if to whistle.

Start practicing this kriya for 11 minutes and gradually increase the time to a half-hour.

Emergency Preparedness Supplies

Long Deep Breathing

Make your spine straight, whether you are sitting, standing, or lying down. This whole breath is done very slowly and consciously, and the air moves in and out through your nose, not your mouth.

INHALE: Then slowly move your belly outward. As you do this, you are automatically drawing your diaphragm down. As your diaphragm moves down, it pulls the bottom of your lungs down, thereby pulling air into the bottom of your lungs as a bellows action. Allow your bottom ribs to expand, and then expand the upper ribs to bring air into all of your lungs!

EXHALE: Now slowly move your belly in. This pushes your diaphragm up, and pushes the air out of the bottom of your lungs. Do this as slowly and fully as you can comfortably do it. And be sure that the length of your inhale equals the length of your exhale!

Besides helping to relive and prevent stress, this technique is important for brain longevity because it helps to increase the capacity of the lungs. Thus is supplies more oxygen to all the cells in your body, including those in your brian.

It will re-tune and reset your brain so that correct decisions will flow automatically in a crisis situation. Long Deep Breathing
