Yoga Nidra: Connecting to the “Guru” within.

May 3, 2012

Place yourself in your most comfortable relaxation position and prepare your body and mind for Yoga Nidra, for deep relaxation. Take all your awareness to your breath. Notice each inhalation and exhalation as you draw your awareness inwards. Without changing the rhythm of your breathing, quietly and patiently observe each and every breath without judgement, without reaction, without emotion, just silent observation and conscious awareness.

Allow the sacred life force of your breath to settle the whole body feeling how it gently and willingly releases to the joy of relaxation. Witness the movement of the yogic breath from the belly through the chest to the nasal passages, as the belly rises on the inhalation and falls on the exhalation; observing patiently how the chest naturally expands on the in breath and contracts on the out breath; how the air flows upwards through the nasal passages on entering and warmly flows down as it exists.

Observing and sensing the nature of the yogic breath, feel how it transforms the entire being of your body with peacefulness and awareness. Awareness that is healing, awareness that is joyful and awareness that is positive. Maintaining this experience of complete and calm awareness visualize a beautiful colour of indigo that radiates from the Ajna Chakra, the Brow Energy Centre. This glorious colour enhances the Anja Centre with clarity, so much clarity that you begin to see the true nature of your inner being, you begin to feel and envision the higher intellect, you understand and embrace that inner voice, that inner being that is your intuition.

It is the clarity and balance of Ajna that encourages you to trust that intuition which is your inner voice, to trust that inner voice which is the wisdom you possess, to believe that wisdom that is the Divine within you that speaks to you and affirms, “I am the Truth, I am your inner voice, I AM THAT – SO HUM,”

Allow the light of Ajna to reaffirm your trust in your intuition, as your intuition is the Divine voice that speaks to you. If you trust, if you affirm, if you believe, then all you need to guide you along your path to healing and fulfillment is to trust your intuition, which is the “guru” within you.

When you are ready, patiently and effortlessly, bring your awareness back to your body by making small and gentle movements. Revitalize the body and the mind by increasing the oxygen to the brain and take a deep breath in, filling up your lungs and then gently release the breath.

Allow the clarity of Ajna and the faith in your intuition to guide you, to heal you and to connect you to the “guru” within.

Remind yourself to always acknowledge the Divine Light that resides within.

Om Shanti.
