Yogi Bhajan Q & A: Emotions


Kundalini Yoga Technology

Kundalini Yoga for Emotional Balance
Here is one simple yogic technique for emotional balance you can do most anywhere. When you're upset, drink water and slow the breath down to 4 breaths per minute. This will help to give you indirect control over the mind.

Alternate Nostril Breathing
This simple yet most powerful technique is a pranayam that is easy to do, and it creates a deep sense of well-being and harmony on the physical, mental, and emotional levels.

Stress Relief and Clearing the Emotions of the Past 
This meditation can remove unsettling thoughts from the past that surface into the present. It can take difficult situations in the present and release them into the Hands of Infinity.

Managed Energy Meditation
This meditation balances the glandular system so that the emotions become constant and the mind becomes divine in its actual potential.

Movement Relaxation Series
Rhythmic, unforced, graceful, and free movement relaxes the entire body and releases the tensions we store in the body from our daily emotions. 

Meditation to Prevent Freaking Out
If you are irritated, very depressed, in a weird mental state, start breathing from the right nostril. In 3 minutes you will be a different person.

Kriya to Open the Heart Center
This meditation opens the heart, increases compassion and sensitivity to others, and helps you to drop emotional defensiveness.

Immune System Booster: The Inner Sun
In this process you may go through various emotions as the glands start to shift their balance. Relax and keep going until you are through the emotional inertia. Then you will feel light, energized, and hopeful.

Meditation for a Calm Heart
Emotionally, this meditation adds clear perception to your relationships with yourself and others. If you are upset at work or in a personal relationship, sit in this meditation for 3 to 15 minutes before deciding how to act. Then act with your full heart.

Meditation for the Neutral Mind
The neutral mind lets all other thoughts be without disturbance to your constant inner light.

Pran Bhanda Mantra Meditation
We become attached to our finite identity, or to time, space, and intensity of emotion or experience. This mantra takes you beyond those finite attachments.

Creating Self Love - Reverse Adi Shakti Kriya
This meditation will totally change you from the inside out. It will give you self-consciousness, self-experience, self-love and then you can love everybody.

Mandhavani Kriya
The heart becomes stable amidst all the different emotions and stressors that come from outside or inside us.

Yoga to Balance the Head and Heart 
This yoga set brings a balance between logic and feeling, between ideas and the "fire" to put them into action, between an overly intellectual mind and overly sensitive emotions. It aligns the head and heart so you can be great and graceful, aware and loving.
