Meditation to brighten your aura

Brighten Your Radiance.
Mudra:Sit in easy pose, spine straight. Place the two hands about 12 inches to either side of the ears, palms facing forward, fingers pointing straight up towards the ceiling. The elbows are not pressed into the sides, but are held away from the body a bit. Bend the index finger down and curl it under the thumb (Giaan Mudra). The rest of the fingers are held side by side, pointing straight up. Hold the position steady and breathe.
Eyes: Focus on the tip of the nose.
Breath: Make your lips into a very clear "0", and breathe long and deep through the "0" mouth.
Tape: The Yogi by Matamandir Singh.
Time: Done for almost 21 minutes in class.
End: Inhale deeply, hold the breath, come into a state of shuniaa (zero), and synchronize your entire being. Hold 20 seconds. Relax.
Comments/Effeets: "You don't need make up, you don't need anything. You are known by your spirit. You shall project out by your radiance. You shall be loved and honored by your excellence, or stupidity, as the case may be.
Who are you? You are a "hu-man being." Hu means spirit, the light, the hue. (YB makes circles with his hands over his head, and out to the sides, referring to the auric field or radiant body of a person.) Man means now, mental, being now. Now you are the spirit of your mind. You are bright light of yourself. That's your identity.
The art of being smartis to be small which can contain all.The art of successis to answer the call of duty with grace and compassion.The art of happinessis to serve all and all shall serve you.

Kundalini yoga set in Yoga Journal

Tune in to the infinite and tune up your body with this energizing Kundalini sequence for optimum health.
By Andrea Ferretti 
She stands just over five feet tall, but when Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa enters a room, everyone notices. It isn't just her turban, her flowing all-white ensemble, or her enormous gong that make her stand out. Khalsa's presence can only be explained by the immense amount of energy she exudes, whether it's serene, joyful, or even mischievous. In Kundalini terms, she's got a very strong aura.
Khalsa, the cofounder and director of the Golden Bridge Yoga center in Los Angeles, chalks it up to doing this form of yoga for more than 30 years. "Kundalini gives you energy and grit to deal with the challenges in your life," she says. "It strengthens your aura and opens you up to give and receive love." If you've never doneKundalini before, you'll notice some differences from other types of yoga. Instead of holding the poses, Kundalini classes incorporate different kinds of movement, from waving or kicking the limbs in a repetitive, structured way to dancing in an unstructured way. Khalsa often uses music during class, and each session ends with Corpse Pose to the sound of a gong. Also, each kriya, or sequence, is taught exactly as it was passed down from Kundalini masters.
Here, Khalsa shares a kriya for optimum health and well-being taught to her by her teacher Yogi Bhajan, who died in 2004. The sequence stimulates the navel chakra, which regulates strength and mental clarity.
Before you begin
Don't eat for at least two hours before you practice. If you need nourishment, drink some juice. Warm yourself up with a few stretches to loosen the spine, hips, and shoulders.
Chant "Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo." It translates as "I open myself to the Divine Creativity of the Universe. To the Subtle Transparent Teacher within and without, I bow." Chanting this mantra is like tuning the radio to a certain wavelength, turning on the channel to Infinity. It extends your mind from the daily earthly life to timelessness.
1. Lying on your back, bend your right knee and bring it across your body to the left side. Raise your right arm alongside your ear. Your shoulders remain on the floor. Stretch to the left side and then to the right, 21 times on each side.
2. Still lying on your back, lift your left leg to 90 degrees and lower it while lifting your right leg to 90 degrees. Continue alternate leg lifts for 1 1/2 minutes.
3. Still lying on your back, lift your arms and legs up to 90 degrees and then lower them and raise them again rapidly for 2 minutes.
4. Lying on your stomach, reach back and grab your left ankle and pull the leg down to touch the left buttock. Then release the left ankle and grab the right ankle and stretch it down to touch the right buttock. Continue, moving quickly and alternating legs for 1 minute.
5. Still lying on your stomach, grab both ankles and come up into Bow Pose. Roll on your stomach back and forth like a hobbyhorse, extend your tongue out of your mouth, and do the breath of fire for 1 1/2 minutes. (To do breath of fire, pump the breath in and out through your nose. Your navel center will move in as you exhale and out as you inhale. Start slowly and gradually increase to 60 breaths per minute. Keep your face and shoulders relaxed.)
6. Roll quickly onto your back and begin jumping your whole body all around and up and down for 2 minutes.
7. Come into Cobra Pose and begin moving up and down from Cobra Pose to lying on the floor and back up into Cobra Pose. Stick your tongue all the way out and breathe through your mouth. Do 54 Cobra lifts.
8. Lying on your back, bend your knees and hug them to your chest. Put your nose between your knees and rock forward and back on your spine for 2 minutes.
9. Lie back and, with your legs six inches off the ground, crisscross your arms and legs back and forth for 2 minutes.
10. Lying on your back, come into Half Wheel Pose by grabbing your ankles and arching your spine, resting your shoulders and head on the floor. Hold for 6 1/2 minutes. Listen to relaxing meditative music.
11. Turn onto your belly and relax for another 8 minutes.
12. Flip from your stomach onto your back in one move and relax, pretending to sleep. Listen to "Guru Ram Das Lullaby" for 11 minutes or play some other meditative music.
13. Lift your arms and legs and roll your wrists and ankles in both directions. Then do Cat Stretch by bending your right leg and placing your left hand on the outside of your right knee. Pull the knee across your body into a twist. Look over at your right arm stretched along the floor. Enjoy the stretch, then bring the right knee back to your chest and release the leg on the floor. Do the other side.
14. End your practice with this meditation: If you have it, play a recording of "Wahe Guru Wahe Guru Wahe Guru Wahe Jio" while you meditate. Sit in Easy Pose, with your eyes closed, looking at the tip of your nose through your closed eyes for 3 1/2 minutes. Then change your focus to your crown chakra (the top of the head) for 4 minutes.
After you finish
May the long time sun
shine upon you,
All love surround you.
And the pure light within you,
Guide your way on. Sat Nam.
This song is a form of selfless service, or giving back to the world. It teaches you to send your newly expanded radiant energy to heal and console others.

Meditation connect with the sensory system

Connect with the Sensory System
August 21, 2000, Espanola, NM
Sit straight in a cross-legged position. Place the right hand on top of the left hand, to create a triangle in front of the heart, arms parallel to the floor, both palms facing down. Eyes are focused at the tip of the nose. Make an “o" of your mouth and inhale very long and deep through it, completely filling the chest. Exhale through the nose. See how strong and comfortable you can be. Use your commitment and courage. Consolidate your senses. Achieve. Continue for 31 minutes. To end, inhale deeply and hold the breath with all your force. Exhale. Repeat 2 more times. On the last breath, hold, and squeeze every nerve and every fiber of your body. Exhale and relax.
There is the earth, universe and galaxies. We are huge, interactive, and very vast. As we do these exercises we start sensing the entire universe within us.

Meditation to stop cosmic disturbances

For Effects of Radiation & Stop Cosmic Disturbances
Trikurti Turvani Kriya

Taught by Yogi Bhajan May 15, 1978 - Los Angeles, California

Mudra: Sitting in easy pose with a straight spine, and bend the elbows down into the sides. Bring the hands with the palms flat and fingers pointing up, next to each shoulder. Bend the index finger into the palm, and touch it to the tip of the thumb (giaan mudra).

Eyes: Look at the tip of the nose.

Breath & Mantra: Inhale very deeply, and chant the following mantra three times on one breath: Praanaa Apaanaa Shush manaa Haree, Haree Har Haree Har Haree Har Haree Chant the mantra at a fairly rapid pace, to be able to repeat it 3 times on one breath.

Comments: There is so much radiation in the atmosphere that your nerves cannot stand it and you get grouchy and upset. Those who have poor sympathetic nervous systems cannot keep their cool, and they do wrong things. In case of atomic energy radiation or total destruction, if you can perfect your mind with this, it may help you. This is one of the most sacred mantras. This kriya works right on the spot. It's not that if we chant it today, it will work tomorrow. It will work right then and there. As much as you will chant, that much it will return to you. It will cut out that karma and that much dharma will enter. It takes care of your entire texture. Trikurti is the triangle at the third eye. Turvani means cosmic triangle. These two triangles are very important. People who eat meat, people who kill animals and take their bad vibes, this redeems them. This is actually the offering to God, and it's a most beautiful offering of prana. This mantra can stop the cosmic disturbance. In very, very old times when typhoons used to come, when destruction used to come from the heavens, people used to practice this mantra. When they would think there was no escape, they would sit down together, meditate and chant. Somehow the miracle of God, the hand of God would save them. This is the basic mantra
