Healing Heartbreak with Kundalini Yoga

Kundalini yoga known today is a 20th-century niche yoga synthesis comprised of many traditions including Hatha, Kriya, Tantra, and Laya yoga. Kundalini gets its name from the serpent-like Shakti –Life Force energy– of Tantrism.

Kundalini yoga was popularized in the late 1960s by Yogi Bhajan, who adding Sikh mantras and attached Tantric theories to yogic asanas (postures). His Kundalini yoga uses body postures and hand mudras, breathing, chanting, dancing, and meditating to transform and expand consciousness, and awaken and raise Life Force energy up the Chakra energy spine.

Emotional wounds of heartbreak not only affect the heart by contracting it, they wreak havoc on the nervous system as well. Kundalini yoga seeks to calm the nerves and soothe the heart so healing can take place. Kundalini “kriyas” (meaning: work or action) are a series of exercises or postures, pranayama (breathing), bandha locks, chanting, visualization or projections, in a specific sequence designed to produce specific effects. By using specific kriyas which help calm nerves and soothe strong emotions, and by focusing awareness on higher consciousness using mantras, Kundalini yoga can help heal heartbreak and strengthen a wounded spirit.

Kundalini yoga’s ability to raise and expand consciousness makes it a good fit with the Consciousness Based Healing method transmitted to me during my NDE. Kundalini yoga’s great ability to treat the Chakra energy spine, calm nerves and soothe strong emotions are why I recommend it to my clients.

Kundalini yoga also uses pranayama (breathing) and bandha locks (postures involving muscle contractions) which channel and align energy flow throughout the body. In coaching sessions, I will share with you the breathing and bandha-locks, kriya-mudras and meditations for processing and releasing grief and healing heartbreak. My coaching makes learning Kundalini yoga easy, and you can then practice these at home and include them in your spiritual routine. Practicing Kundalini yoga will help relieve anxiety and stress and will facilitate healing your broken heart.

Healing Heartbreak Kriya – Mudra

This mudra creates balance; it generates a subtle pressure which adjusts the heart meridian along the little finger and outer forearm, activating the “action nerve” junction with the autonomic system to reset itself by keeping the forearms parallel to the ground and involving the armpit reflexes; and finally, it uses the pranic influence of the middle finger and its Saturn and air qualities to quell residual emotional storms.

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine and a light Neck Lock.

Mudra: Palms together, lightly touching. The tip of the Saturn (middle) finger is at the level of the Third

Eye Point. The forearms are horizontal to the ground, elbows high. Look within.

(No mantra or breath specified.)

Time: Continue for 11, 31, or 62 minutes.

To end: Inhale, exhale, relax the breath, and with clasped hands stretch the arms up for 2 minutes.

Meditation for removing haunting thoughts..

There is a meditation yogi bhajan gave with 5 parts..thinking of a situation where you felt very hurt

1) bringing up the feeling,

2) feeling how the other person felt,

3) forgiving yourself,

4) forgiving them and

5) letting it go to the universe..

After each of the steps you breathe in, hold the breath and focus on the right eye and chant “wa,” the left eye-“hey,”,the tip onf the nose-“guru ,”and then let the breath out. You can repeat the same incident as much as needed, or go from one to another, whatever comes up. I did it for 90 days in the late 90’s when yogi b sent it to me..it is subtle and really starts the healing process. Not sure it is in a manual but have seen it in compiled old teachings, bound together but untitled, might ask if anyone has it…sat nam amrita.

Grief Release & To Heal a Broken Heart

Sit straight, and Tune In!

Part I:
Place your left palm flat against your heart center, with your right hand on top of it. Make your mouth into an “O” and begin very powerfully inhaling through your mouth, expanding the navel as you breathe in, and then exhaling very powerfully through your mouth, as you pull your navel in.

Continue in this way for 3-5 minutes. Allow your breath to enter your heart center, and clear all emotional conflict that you are going through.

Part II:
Bring your palms together in prayer pose. Place this mudra in front of your face, with the tips of your middle fingers at the level of your forehead. Keep your elbows out to the sides, arms parallel to the floor. Keep your eyes focused at your brow point (third eye). Hold the position with long, deep breathing through your nose.

Try to think of nothing!

This is very good for building nerve strength, and helps mend a broken heart. Continue for 11 minutes. At the end, inhale deeply, exhale and stretch for up to 2 minutes. Relax.
