Salutations To The Shining One

This mantra invokes the healing power of the sun. When using it, for maximum benefit spend some time in the sun each day. You will achieve optimal results by practicing the mantra between ten and twenty minutes each day for forty days.

Om Hiranyagharbhaya Namaha

(Om Heer an yah gar bah yah Nah mah hah)

“Om and salutations to the Shining One
who heals and is golden-colored.”

An alternate translation:

“Om and salutations to Hiranya-garbha’s golden-colored rays.
May your powerful solar energy heal my heart and emotions.”

Wealth and Power With Jupiter

This is a fast but very powerful “instant meditation” to enjoy POWER, which is absolutely a part of wealth.

Today, you are Jupiter, and as you realize this, you begin to expand and grow.

Around your feet, lakes and then entire oceans pool, and you grow straight up and through the clouds, becoming absolutely HUGE.

When your head is above the clouds and brushing the stratosphere, you can FEEL the powerful and abundant, fiery energy of the entire Universe beginning to flow into you, to rush into you and when it fills you to overflowing, you raise your hands and lightning strikes!

And where your gaze rests, your lightning strikes, and it brings the spark of life to barren planes; it brings great fountains of water up from the earth; it cauterizes and clears away debris and toxic pollution; it raises great mountains and green islands from the sea.

This is your power. Enjoy.

Reshape the land to your perfection.

When you are done, dissolve and by all means, enjoy the fruit of these your labours through your senses and in any way you choose.

60 Second Power Meditation

This is a WONDERFUL “power booster” prayer / spell / affirmation.

  • Take a deep breath.
  • Put your hands on the center of your chest (where your lion heart of energy resides).
  • Breathe deeply in and out, three times.

Now say out aloud, and in your best powerful resonant voice:

  • I am powerful.

Let the statement ring out, breathe in and out again, and say:

  • My heart beats strong.

Let the statement ring out, breathe in and out again, and say:

  • My mind is clear.

Let the statement ring out, breathe in and out again, and say:

  • I am ready for action.

Give a brief bow – and go straight into ACTION!

Prosperity Sunrise

In the olden days, the sun and gold and god and prosperity were all tied up together.

The sun is a powerful prosperity and wealth symbol, perhaps the most powerful of them all.

So in a moment, close your eyes and find yourself on a wide, sweeping plane, cool and dark it is still but there is a banding on the far horizon that tells you the sun is about to rise.

This is your prosperity sunrise.

Feel the power and radiance of the sun increasing as the sky fills with living light, as it gets brighter and brighter, and then the sun rises majestically over the horizon and floods the plane with light, bathes you in light, powerful energy, powerful charge and powerful wealth.

Accept this blessing with open arms.

Turn around on the spot and bathe in this blessing of wealth and power.

When you are filled to overflowing and beyond, return and continue your day …

The Ganesha Mudra

The Ganesha Mudra is a powerful hand lock which, when incorporated into your yoga practice, can lift your spirits, relieve tension and boost confidence! It is the physical embodiment of perseverance. To achieve it, you should begin in a comfortable seated position with a long, straight spine. Then:

  • Bring both hands in front of your chest with bent elbows.
  • Position your left hand, palm outward, so your thumb points down toward the solar plexus and your pinky points up toward the collar bone.
  • Form a claw by bending the four fingers of your left hand and clasping them with the four fingers of your right hand. Your right palm should be facing your chest.
  • Take a deep breath in through the nose. Fill up.
  • Upon exhaling, forcefully pull both arms apart while keeping the claws locked. Feel that resistance open your shoulders and chest.
  • Inhale again and relax your arms, always maintaining the Ganesha lock. Exhale and pull apart.
  • Repeat this process six times, breath to movement.
  • Interchange the direction of your hands, with your right palm facing outwards and the left palm facing inward.
  • Repeat six more times.

Release the Mudra, feeling all tension melt away with it. Bring your unclasped hands to your heart, palms facing inward. Focus on slow, deliberate breaths, absorbing the restoration of equilibrium to the body, mind and soul.

Why does it work?

By uniting this Ganesha yoga pose with potent breath, blockages and obstacles are evicted from the body. With no refuge in the openness that’s been created, the clutter of the mind also dissolves. And since it’s his job to destroy what’s in the way, Ganesha has been known to place obstacles in the path of those who need to be “checked.” If something blocks your path, invoking Ganesha’s symbolic destruction with this Mudra can help to create space for what you seek!

Often honored at the opening of important rites and ceremonies, Ganesha represents new beginnings. His presence reminds us it’s only after we’ve removed the obstacles that we can begin anew. Sometimes, we must demolish the ego to rebuild a stronger foundation for personal growth. The yoga mat is the perfect place to lay that base!

Release After Resistance

The Ganesha pose can remove negativity and stress by stimulating resistance in the upper body. Sometimes, it’s only after release that we notice the heaviness of the weight we were carrying. What are you resisting? What’s holding you back? What obstacles can you remove to free yourself from what doesn’t serve you? Surround yourself with Ganesha, and all can become clear.

Here’s a Ganesha Mudra Meditation

The meditation is to be done while holding the Mudra pose.

  • Fully inhale. Fill your lungs up to their fullest capacity.
  • Fully Exhale. Empty your lungs until they are completely empty.

Every time you exhale draw your navel in, tense your chest and arm muscles and feel as if you are trying to get out of the grip, but you can’t. Stay relaxed in your face, top shoulders neck as you feel the tension. Completely exhale until your lungs are empty while visualizing and mentally repeating the obstacle (what’s holding you back).

  • Then inhale to fill your lungs while releasing the tension. Maintain the clasp.
  • Repeat this 6 times. For a total of 6 cycles.

When I do this I like to visualize myself exhaling against any resistance I might be feeling at the moment. It helps me to release the tension. I feel myself dissolving it and it opens me up and creates space.

When I inhale I visualize myself opening myself up to what I am focusing on (writing, finishing something I have been putting off), and the possibilities of exploring/learning something new.

Integrate what you are experiencing at the moment and use the Ganesha Mudra Meditation for that.

When you are done; visualize a clear path; visualize openness. Believe the pathway is clear for you to continue what you want/need to do. Believe that everything will have an outcome that will serve you in the best possible way possible.

There are many factors you can’t control, but be in charge of what you can control. Your thoughts, your actions is always within your control.

Give it a go, and see if/how it can support you. Make it your own. This meditation takes no more than 3 minutes.

How To Meditate

For the purpose of this project, we are recommending the “unstructured” meditation practice. In the “unstructured” meditation practice, we simply substitute the mantra for our normal mental chatter.

Whenever you feel angry, uncomfortable, unhappy, frustrated, upset, scared, bored, unsure, or unloved, simply begin to think (or say) the mantra. If you notice that you are dwelling on unpleasant experiences in the past, experiencing unhappiness in the present present or envisioning a disastrous future – just go back to thinking the mantra. Any time you find yourself in the grip of worry, guilt, or fear – this just means it’s time to begin thinking the mantra again. When you are driving in your car, when you are cleaning your house, when you are working out, when you begin a new task – these are all excellent times to remember the mantra.

Eventually, the mantra will be a constantly running stream in the background of your mind. Your “worry” thoughts will begin to take on less importance. It’s as if, when you wake up in the morning, you begin your meditation practice, and you continue it all day long until you go to bed. Anytime you notice “Oh, I am not thinking that mantra,” just begin it again.

The mantra may be said aloud, or sung, or chanted, or allowed to just run silently through your mind. It doesn’t matter at all. Whatever feels most comfortable for you at the time.

If you prefer a more structured practice, that’s fine too. Here are some guidelines you might find helpful:

Traditional meditation practice is called Japa, or recitation, and is the spiritual practice of devotedly repeating a mantra, generally a specified number of times, such as 108, often while counting on a strand of beads, called a japa mala, while conscientiously concentrating on the meaning of the mantra. The mantra can also be repeated for a specified period of time, such as 20 minutes. This can be done while sitting or walking, and gives the best results with a consistent daily practice.

The repetition should be dutifully slow. This brings punya, merit, to the devotee. Japa is a form of devotional worship, invocation, supplication, praise, adoration, meditation and direct, experiential communion.

Unless we are actually in a state of samadhi (total absorption), which is rare for most people, japa provides a means to disengage from our racing thoughts and our memories of the past — mostly the bad ones. The repetition of positive, uplifting, spiritual mantras over and over again lifts consciousness and causes the muladhara chakra to spin clockwise. We feel uplifted. Life does not look so bad, and neither does the past. A sense of forgiveness comes and the future looms bright. The past is forgiven and forgotten. Japam can be done by everyone.

 

Awaken Shakti With The Ganesh Mantra

Back in 2007, we did a project Invoking Ganesh with the Ganesh Mantra. I am in the process of (very slowly) migrating it from the old Blogger Blog to it’s new home here at shirleytwofeathers.com. I could sure use some help from the Remover of Obstacles, and I thought it might be worth incorporating into a morning routine.

Here’s some info from Mind Body Green:

This is my favorite mantra to awaken Shakti, or the manifesting energy of the Universe, to stoke the fire of transformation within. I teach this mantra in classes, I sing it while driving in Los Angeles traffic and I have shared with with friends, family and students around the world because it’s easy and uplifting with the potential for great results.

According to the Buddhist Handbook, mantras are “highly compressed, power-packed formulas, usually of Sanskrit origin, which are charged with deep meaning and magical potency.” A mantra can be a word, sound or phrase which elevates or modifies consciousness through its meaning, sound, rhythm, tone and reflexology of the tongue against the palate of the mouth.

This particular mantra is “Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha,” which can be loosely translated to “Yo! Wake up Root Chakra energy of transformation so I can move through any obstacles in my life. Hooray!” Most importantly, we are calling upon the powerful energy of Ganesh, the elephant headed deity, who is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and the Lord of Beginnings.

According to Kundalini yoga, Ganesh, also referred to as Ganapataye, resides in the first chakra, called Muladhara (muladhara). Mula means “original,” and adhara means “foundation.” The muladhara chakra is the principal origin from which the manifesting energy of Shakti resides within each of us. When we awaken that energy, it helps us move through the Chakras with ease to activate a strong sense of self, express Divine love, communicate clearly and connect with our intuition.

This particular mantra is important because not only is it fun and catchy, but it also represents a willingness to release and move past the perceived obstacles in our lives. We can all make excuses for ourselves about why we cannot achieve our dreams, but you will have an easier time succeeding when you choose to focus on your goals rather than your challenges. So when you make the choice to chant this mantra, you are aligning yourself with your desired outcome and moving towards it with conviction.

I suggest you use this mantra when you want to clear the Chitta Vritti, or the anxious chatter of the mind. You can repeat this Mantra 108 times on your Mala beads or follow along with a video for a minute of chanting. You’ll find a bunch of them on YouTube. Most importantly, make it your own, find your voice and have fun. Remember, this is your life. Don’t let anything hold you back because you deserve the best.

Breathe

So simple, and yet so effective. Take a few deep breaths, and then for a few minutes, just focus on your breathing. Concentrate on your breathing as it comes into your body, and then as it goes out. It has a calming effect, especially if you continue to return your focus to your breath when your mind strays. It also allows other thoughts to just float away.

Note: some people might call this meditation, but that word scares some people off, so we’re just going to call it breathing.

The Sweet Spot

Isn’t it an exhilarating feeling when you are able to blur the world around you and calibrate your brain to get lost in the work you’re doing? Whether you call it concentration, focus, escapism, flow, meditation or even work-induced trance, you have to admit that it’s a sweet spot.

If you are having trouble finding a focus, or if it seems hard to focus your energy with any intensity, here is a simple exercise that I found at Moksha Mantra.

A simple concentration exercise

You can practice the following concentration exercise to hone your focusing skills.

Sit in a quiet room or a quiet place and make sure you will not be interrupted. Focus on any object or image. It could be a painting or a photo or even a candle. But, ensure that the object you focus on is not repulsive. Expect that your mind will mind wander. This is fine. Whenever you get distracted, gently bring your focus back on the object. If you find yourself becoming tense, simply relax and breathe. And gently bring your focus back on the object. Practice this exercise for at least 15 minutes a day.

Note:

This could be tweaked a bit for the project by using an image or collection of images that symbolize or identify those circumstances, situations, and things you’d like to bring more of into your life.

A Nice Violet Flame Meditation

From the Daily Om, here is a very simple and very nice Violet Flame Meditation:

vpXJnq

Adding a violet flame meditation once in a while to your daily practice is a lovely way to feel a fresh sense of peace. The violet flame is a powerful tool anyone can use in meditation. It helps release negative karma, raise your consciousness awareness, the frequency of your vibration, and accelerate your spiritual growth.

Energy can’t be erased but it can be changed, transmuting negative into positive, darkness into light. This allows you to make the choices you feel negatively about become positive, while also changing your emotional experience. Physically, the violet flame releases emotions and energy pent up within that make you vulnerable to illness and disease.

The violet flame in meditation uses a combination of affirming thoughts and visualization.

Once centered, begin by surrounding yourself with white-and-blue protective energy. You may even want to call on archangel Michael for his protection while you go into this powerful spiritual state. Then repeat thoughts such as “I am cleansed and purified by the violet flame.”

Picture a huge bonfire before you, its immensity making you feel small beside it, and marvel as the colors flicker between purple, violet, and bright pink. Sense its warmth while noticing that it will not burn you. Step into the flame, letting it surround you entirely while also filling the spaces in your body, your thoughts, even the cells and molecules within you.

Once there, focus on the positive things you’d like to create in your life or your hopes for others. Visualize the violet flame in the midst of the scenes as they unfold in your mind. You may want to ask that the power of the flame be multiplied to assist those in need.

When you have finished your meditation, be sure to close with gratitude. The violet flame is a powerful tool that should be used consciously and with intent. Forgetting to close with thanks keeps you connected and may lead to the unintentional misuse of this energy. It is always a good idea when finished with any spiritual practice to give thanks as this creates closure.

Saints and adepts throughout the ages have known how to use the violet flame, but it is available for all to use to raise our awareness and, eventually, that of all mankind.
