I’ve been wiped out lately due to waking up during the night never having a full nights rest. Last time I can remember sleep through the night when I was a teenager, remember those days? I slept like rock!
What disturbs my sleep you ask? Well, intense dreams, an overly chatty mind that won’t relax or suddenly waking up feeling stressed, worried or anxious for no particular reason. Even though I don’t feel any symptoms of stress during my waking hours, my body must be experiencing it because it all comes out during my sleep time.
So I decided to do something about it! My random web browsing I can across this Kriya, Shabad Kriya that says it cures insomnia. Well it I got to it that night!
I’ve been practicing it for a few weeks now every night before bed and it has definitely improved my sleep. AND to my pleasant surprise it has relieve my sinus congestion, relaxed the tension in my jaw, eye and ears, giving my whole head a feeling of relief.
This Kriya is a keeper! Something you should keep in your daily practice, especially if you suffer from similar symptoms as me.
Here’s how it’s done
The best time to practice this kriya is every night before bed, but it can be practiced any time of the day. It is said that if it is practiced regularly, sleep will be deep and relaxed, and the nerves will regenerate. After a few months, the rhythm of your breath as you sleep will be subconsciously regulated in the rhythm of the mantra. You will think better, work better, share better, love better, and fight better. This rhythmic mantra will eventually progress so that even in daily activities you will automatically hear the mantra and take on the breath rhythm.
The breath is regulated into 22 beats. In Numerology, the number 11 is the number of Infinity. The number 22 is the mastery of the mental realm. This 22 beat breath gives the mind the power to stretch to the Infinite.
There cannot be enough praise of this meditation and its growth-promoting effect on the personality. It gives radiance, and the radiance gives patience, which is the first condition of real love. In love you give without attention to all the mistakes of another as the sun gives light and warmth to all people.
Here What To Do
Posture: Sit in any comfortable posture with the spine straight. Place the hands in the lap, palms up with the right hand over the left. The thumbs are together and point forward.
Eyes: Focus the eyes on the tip of the nose, the eyelids 9/10 closed.
Breath and Mantra: Inhale in 4 equal parts, mentally vibrating the mantra Sa-Ta-Na-Ma. Hold the breath, silently chanting the mantra 4 times for a total of 16 beats. Exhale in 2 equal strokes mentally saying Wahe Guru.
Time: Now traditionally the length is given as 15 to 62 minutes. BUT If you are totally new to this kind of thing, start slow, begin doing it for 3 minutes and slowly build up from there.
