“Healing and Prana”
Prana holds together the elements that allows our physical existence. Prana is the flow that comes from the earth through the hara and is transmuted into life energy that can be projected back into the world from the higher chakras.
Many conditions that interfere with the flow of existence and the healthy flow of prana are due to a bias associated with one’s perception. If we can find the point of perception that holds a viewpoint, it can be “flipped” to allow for a new configuration that leads to self-healing.
We held a meditation and healing intensive at Kundalini Yoga Park Slope, Brooklyn on June 2-3, 2017. Here is a recap of the meditations we performed.
On May 28 we held a Meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan Healing Workshop at Shunnya Centre. The topic was “Holding Together”.
We can recognize through our subtle body the field that holds everything together. Subtle perturbations that happen anywhere in the field have effects everywhere. In our healing practice we navigate the field in a transverse rather than an orthogonal way, collapsing distance and position in time and space. We apply our consciousness directly as if there is no separation between the healer and the patient. Indeed, when we merge in that way, our healing intentions become effective and instantaneous.
We explored attention in our consciousness, practicing stabilizing our attention in shuniya and navigating the space of awareness that opens up in that state.
We exercised our intention in shuniya, witnessing the healing experience.
The important aspects of the workshops to be remembered lie in the meditations that we performed. Practicing these meditations makes these experiences repeatable by giving us access to the shuniya state.
From the root chakra we healed the physical body.
We increased the flow of prana from the earth through the hara.
We increased the flow of prana from the hara to the top rear of the skull.
From the heart chakra we healed the pranic body.
From the heart chakra we healed the soma chakra.
On May 29 we held a Meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan Healing Workshop at Shunnya Centre. We practiced “Healing with the Elements: Fire and Air”. Our goal was to include and merge elements with the healing space in order to allow them to affect the healing in ways that are specific to the elements.
In the healing exercises, first we included the fire element to stimulate a motivation for change. Fire can transmute consciousness into a completely different form. We practiced recognizing the sensation of including fire in the healing space.
We followed that by including the air element. Air has an effect of promoting a path for expansion. What the fire produced as changed consciousness, the air gave it a tangible form for development and expansion.
Using elements is one means of modifying tendencies in a rather general way. We can combine them and give balance to the elements that are present in a system. As with all healing, the use of elements can alter one’s path and destiny.
Another means of producing a roughly similar effect can be found in a meditation that we performed afterwards NM0413 – Intuition and the Strength of Excellence. This meditation uses components of mudra in an intimate configuration to produce change (Saturn) and expansion (Jupiter) in a similar way.
Later in the evening we followed up with these meditations:
Two workshops were conducted on May 15 and 16 at Kundalini Yoga Park Slope.
Friday, Healing and the Subtle Body explored the 9th body.
The ninth body, the Subtle Body, is the fundamental component of our forming a healing relation with our event. Transcending space and time, it can give us a direct experience of something that is not ourself.
The subtle body transcends our physical existence and survives our incarnation. Through our subtle body we can know the unknown. In relation with another person’s subtle body, we can know something of that person’s existence. The subtle body is integral to healing in our tradition.
Saturday, Healing and the Radiant Body explored the tenth body.
The tenth body – Radiant Body
Through the radiant body we choose how we relate with ourselves and others. The radiant body projects our presence externally to others and internally to ourselves. In this tradition, we practice developing a healing presence. With a strong radiant body, our very presence has a profound healing impact on our environment.
We held a Meditation and Sat Nam Rasayan® Healing Workshop with Hari Nam Singh at the RAMA Yoga Institute in Venice, CA. The topic of the workshop was “Shuniya”. It was a basic course in Sat Nam Rasayan®. We practiced opening the space, finding silence in the space, and relating with the event.
