Meditation to Conquer Self AnimosityNovember 14, 2007 7:39 am Kundalini Meditations, Teacher Training
We’ve recently been assigned our first 40 day meditation as part of Teacher Training.
I randomly selected the Meditation to Conquer Self Animosity.Â Upon selection I thought to myself, huh, that’s an interesting item to focus on, animosity towards myself.Â I thought, now come on, I love myself, I certainly don’t have animosity for myself.
Well turns out my ego, has some animosity towards my expanding Self.Â This meditation has been brining up all kinds of stuff I didn’t realize was so deeply seeded within.Â Then my ego (little e) starts throwing up all kinds of road blocks to confuse me on this path.Â I’ll just have to keepÂ up and see what the 40 days brings.
I do have to say that I love the pranayama, associated with this meditation.Â One inhales through the nose, exhales through the mouth, then inhales through the mouth and exhales through the nose.Â Following this breath puts the mind into a sublime state.
I’ll be sure to update ya on my experience post 40 days.
