This Yoga Nidra Meditation Immersion comes from and is inspired by the Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, Verse 28
“Imagine the Sublest possible form of Prana as Rays of Light Shining Upward from the Root of the Central Channel and Peacefully Dissolving into the Highest Center above the Crown. Spacious Awareness Arises.”
This is an exercise from the Vijnana Bhairava, a 1000+ year old compendium of Meditation practices from Kashmir Shaivism. It is very important in both Tantric and Hatha Yoga to feel this line of connective energy from the base of the spine to the crown of the head. We tune into this Meditation during this Yoga Nidra Immersion Session.
The Benefits of Yoga Nidra: Relieves muscular, mental, and emotional tension such as stress and anxiety. Enhances memory, sleep, increased creativity, and energy levels. Helps with the function of your endocrine system and cultivates positive body awareness. Less to the whole restructuring of the Mind-Body-Spirit Balance within.
Enjoy the practice of Point of Light Yoga Nidra in this 25 minute session. Find a quiet place to lie down on the floor or bed. You can also practice after a Hatha Yoga or Vinyasa session or even at the end of your day before bed time. Have a bolster or pillow handy to place under your knees and perhaps a blanket or shawl available to cover yourself. This will help to contain the Meditation energy of the Yoga Nidra Session.
The benefits of Yoga Nidra are known to help activate the relaxation response in your physical body as well as improve the functioning of your nervous and endocrine systems, which affects your hormones, endorphins, and immunity. Both Meditation and Yoga Nidra help your cells to regenerate and repair. This decreases any anxiety you have and improves your overall mood and life.

This powerful meditation plants the seeds of Awakened Consciousness in the fertile ground of your mind so that your consciousness will shift, even if it’s just for a few moments to an Awakened State.
