The next Full Moon will be on June 15th. Time for a Full Moon Meditation such as Antar Naad Mudra (Also called Kabadshe Meditation) Click on the link above for photos and details of the meditation practice.

This practice is done to the Antar Naad Mantra, also known as Sa Re Sa Sa. Listen to an audio clip here.

Complete Mantra:

Sa Re Sa Sa, Sa Re Sa Sa, Sa Re Sa Sa, Sa Rung
Har Re Har Har, Har Re Har Har, Har Re Har Har, Har Rung


That Infinite Totality is here, everywhere. That creativity of God is here, everywhere.

More Information:

Here is what my master said about this manta, “Saa is the Infinite, the Totality, God. It is the element of ether. It is the origin, the beginning, and it contains all other effects. It is subtle and beyond. Har is the creativity of the Earth. It is the dense element, the power of manifestation, the tangible, the personal.

These sounds are woven together and then projected through the sound of ung or complete Totality. This is the base mantra of all mantras. Adversity melts before this mantra. It gives you the capacity of effective communication so your words contain mastery and impact. This mantra helps you conquer the wisdom of the past, present, and future. It brings you peace and prosperity even if it wasn’t in your destiny.

This mantra takes away negativity from within oneself awakening the Infinite Creative energy to burn away obstacles to achieving higher consciousness.

This cycle of the music and mudra is a key to opening the flow of Kundalini. The new awareness will give you the authority to make the right choices to conquer the ugliness of life. You will be peaceful and secure.”  – YOGI BHAJAN 2003

I’ll be practicing in Antaar Naad Mantra in Buddhi Mudra – daily leading up to the Full Moon, and then using the Full Moon Meditation version of mudras – Prayer Pose, Lotus, and Reverse Prayer Pose – synchronized with the mantra, on June 15th. I enjoy this meditation and moving the awareness thru the chakras. This is one of several practices which are beneficial to those with Flatback Syndrome, such as myself. One of the basics of Yoga Therapy is to do those practices which move the energy thru the region of discomfort or pain. As I continue this blog,  I hope to categorize the Meditations, Yoga sets and Kriyas which have helped me the most with living with a Harrington Rod. I’ll also detail modifications I have had to make in my yoga practice to not injure myself due to the surgical implants in my back.

Speaking of chakras, I found these pretty Chakra Cards at SundariSatNam – a yoga center in Vermont.

Memorial Day – I practiced  The Kundalini Yoga Warrior Workout with Elder Daughter. That was fun!

June 1, 2011 – Today I found my old CD of the mantra Aap Sahai Hoa Sachay Daa Sacha Doa, Har Har Har and listened to it while practicing the Meditation For Prosperity which uses that manta. The CD I used is called Aap Sahai Hoa by Singh Kaur. I love Singh Kaur’s music. If you haven’t heard her, take a listen, you’ll be glad you did. If you have heard her, take a listen anyway, she is so Divine! You can listen to her  at the following link,  Spirit Voyage, which happens to be my favorite music and yoga online shopping bliss!

Although you can listen to a wide varity of Singh Kaur’s music at SpiritVoyage.com, I have not been able to find a copy of her version of Aap Sahai Hoa there or elsewhere on-line. I was hoping to find a new copy for my ipod because the CD I have skips after 21 minutes. When I find one, I will post it here.  Today I practiced The Kundalini Yoga Set New Lungs & Circulation (twice); in addition to Pranayam for Emotional Balance and New Perspective – which is inhaling left, exhaling right with long deep breathing. This was a great combo. I enjoyed it, my low back enjoyed it, and my spirit felt exalted.

Kundalini Yoga for Beginners & Beyond

Kundalini Yoga Warrior Workout

Note from Day Four: Last night I watched 2 movies on Netflix while I knitted. I paused to get up and let Ms. E Beagle in and out, or to get a drink several times during the evening. Normally after sitting that long, I look like I am decades older than I am, bent over, stiff, hard to walk. Last night I felt very inspired because I could stand up straight with ease and walk normally. It is amazing what a difference an hour of  yoga a day, for just several days can make! I am feeling very inspired and grateful.

Day Five: Mother’s Day – Sunday, May 8, 2011 – Kundalini Yoga for Beginners & Beyond
I did both sets on this DVD:
Set 1: Rise and Spine aka Basic Spinal Series
Set 2: The Five Tibetans
and also the Meditation for Deep Relaxation

I had an enjoyable day. Fabulous breakfast of Chai Rooibos Tea with Organic Soy milk and Daughter Lu’s Ultra Yummy Gluten Free Pistachio Cake. Lovie sent a very touching message. We picked up dinner from Jenni’s Noodle Bowl, which has both vegan and Gluten Free options and spent the afternoon at my folk’s house with the family.

Four days ago I began a 100 Day Yoga Challenge to help me get my back into shape. I have had a consistent yoga practice for over 30 years, but this past year I had a frozen shoulder, so my yoga practice dwindled while all efforts were ‘shoulder’ oriented. I was diagnosed with Scoliosis in 1973, and subsequently had corrective surgery which included deformity correction, spinal fusion and the placement of Harrington rod instrumentation on September 14, 1976. I will be telling my story, but the focus of this blog will be 100 days of yoga to stretch, strengthen and revitalize my back. I have a yoga routine I use every morning which I will detail at a later date. I will be including some video journaling of my additional yoga and meditation practice for this challenge, as well. For now I am increasing my practice with the help of practicing along with yoga DVDs/sets.

Here is what I have used the past few days to support my endeavor:

Day One: Wednesday, May 4, 2011 – The Ultimate Stretch Workout

Day Two: Thursday, May 5, 2011 – The Ultimate Stretch Workout

Day Three: Friday, May 6, 2011 – Kundalini Yoga for Beginners & Beyond
I did both sets on this DVD:
Set 1: Rise and Spine
Set 2: The Five Tibetans
and also the Meditation for Deep Relaxation

Day Four: Saturday, May 7, 2011 – Charan Jap with the mantra HAR HARAY HARI WAHE GURU (2 miles)
Warrior Workout – the warm up, the series, the Meditation Har Har Har Har Gobinde
