Today we will be practicing a short seated Energy Circuit Meditation technique. Designed to be balancing and nourishing, activating your subtle prana shakti energy body. Especially good for headaches, sleeplessness, restlessness, anxiety or whenever you need to balance your energy during the day.
This meditation opens specific channels in your subtle body to direct your unfocused energy into a relaxed, uplifted, nurtured, and steadied energy body, helping you to repair your cells and restructure your Mind, Body, Spirit Balance within.
Find a quiet seated position in a place you will not be disturbed for 10-12 minutes. You can sit on the floor or a chair, you could even do this in your parked car between appointments if needed. Use your headphones and work to relax as much as possible as you use this Tantric Yoga Visualization Technique to revitalize yourself. In this meditation we have added optional mantra and uddiya bandha techniques to the practice to further the entrainment of the process during meditation. Use what you are comfortable with and leave the rest behind. The Energy Circuit Meditation will uplift and activate your subtle pranic energies leading to a balanced state of consciousness. This meditation can be done several times a week or whenever you feel the calling to do it.
