Growing up, I’m sure you experienced a myriad of situations in your childhood that could have been portrayed by your little self as traumatic. Maybe you even experienced trauma as a child. We are such impressionable beings, especially between conception to 7 years of age. Programming and habits begin to be created, thus creating our experience into adolescence and adulthood. As yogis and those on a path to higher consciousness, we dedicate ourselves to unlearning some of the things that have not served us in our lives. There are some things that are so deeply embedded into our subconscious, we don’t even realize, yet we keep experiencing people in our lives to give us the reflection we don’t necessarily like about ourselves.
Jupiter finger Kriya
This Kriya helps that very situation by balancing the chakras. It helps clear the childhood syndrome and helps you be YOU.
You can practice it up to 33 minutes per day. In this video I have shown you 11 minutes of this Kriya.
Here we include the directions that you are guided through in the video for reference! Sat Nam.
1 | Sit in easy pose.
2 | Place your left hand flat against your chest at the heart center. Fingers are parallel to the ground, thumb points towards the face.
3 | With your right hand, bend the elbow, extend the index (jupiter) finger straight up and fold the remaining fingers into the palm with the thumb holding down the fingers.
4 | Movement + Mantra: Chant the mantra “SA TA NA MA” out loud while the right hand’s extended Index Finger touches the following points. Each round of touching the points and chanting the mantra through takes about 4-5 seconds:
- SA as you touch the middle of the lower lip.
- TA as you touch the tip of the nose, be sure you “point” the finger.
- NA as you touch the outer edge of the RIGHT eye socket, the region of the skull bone near the outside of the eye. Because there are two eyes and two outer edges of the eye socket, alternate sides each time as you go up in the sequence. Start with the right side.
- MA as you touch third eye, a point about 3/4ths of an inch above the indent of the nose which is just below the forehead (mid-point between the eye brows)
5 | Close your Eyes.
6 | 3 Breaths to end: Inhale deep, hold the breath, feel your child by self-hypnosis. Hold for 17 seconds.
7 | Exhale and breathe out.
8 | Inhale deep, hypnotize yourself. You must have seen your picture as a child. Picture it in your heart where your hand is. Concentrate, concentrate, concentrate. Hold for 54 seconds. Exhale and breathe out.
9 | Inhale and breathe in again. Do it again. Bless the child, be that child. Hold for 22 seconds. Exhale and let the breath go. Relax.
