How to Meditate. Isha Kriya | Free Guided Meditation by Sadhguru
Sadhguru is an Indian yogi and his teachings were responsible for inspiring my own awakening of consciousness.
And it is because of him that today I dedicate to share information on how to build his own reality.
Today I would like to share this powerful meditation created by Sadhguru. We produce an audio specially designed to be used with headphones, which combines Theta frequencies and guided meditation so that the listener can more easily reach a deep meditative state.
It is important to remember that the effect of Binaural Beats Meditation works only when using headphones.
ISHA KRIYA Instructions:
📌 Sit facing east in a cross-legged posture, with your spine comfortably erect.
📌 Keep your hands on your thighs, with your palms facing up.
With your face slightly upturned, eyes closed, keep a mild focus between your eyebrows.
This meditation will happen in three stages:
✔️ Stage 1:
📌 Inhale and exhale gently, slowly.
📌 With each inhalation, mentally say to yourself: “I am not the body.” The inhalation should last the whole duration of that thought.
📌 Each exhalation, mentally says to yourself: “I am not even the mind.” The exhalation should last for the whole duration of that thought.
📌 Repeat this for 7 to 11 minutes.
📌 Utter a long “A” sound (as the “a” in father). The sound should come from just below the navel. You need not utter it very loud, but loud enough to feel the vibration.
📌 Utter the long “A” sound 7 times, exhaling fully into each sound.
📌 Sit for 5 to 6 minutes with a slightly upturned face, and keep a mild focus between your eyebrows.
📌 The total time of this practice is between 12 to 18 min. You can sit longer if you want.
While you sit for the Isha Kriya, do not pay attention to the activity of the mind or body. Whatever is happening in your body or your mind, just ignore it and simply sit there.
Do not take a break in between, as it will disturb the reorganization
of energies that happen during the practice.
Each time you do the kriya, you must do it for a minimum of 12 minutes, and twice a day for 48 days (considered as a full mandala or cycle), or once a day for 90 days. This is your commitment. This is your Gurudakshina(1).
Anyone can practice this kriya(2) and enjoy its benefits. Simply follow
the instructions without making any changes. This is a simple but
very potent kriya.
You can remind yourself that “ I am not the body. I am not even the mind” anytime during the day.
(1). A traditional offering to a Guru or Spiritual Master
(2). A yogic practice involving life energies
Isha Kriya – Free Online Guided Meditation
Rooted in the timeless wisdom of the yogic sciences, Isha Kriya is a simple yet potent process created by yogi and mystic, Sadhguru. Isha Kriya is free, simple, and easy to practice. Available as a guided meditation with an instructional video and downloadable instructions, as well as through live classroom sessions, it has the potential to transform the life of anyone who is willing to invest just 12 minutes a day.
“Isha” refers to that which is the source of creation; “kriya” literally means “internal action.” The purpose of Isha Kriya is to help an individual get in touch with the source of their existence, to create life according to their own wish and vision. Daily practice of Isha Kriya brings health, dynamism, peace, and wellbeing. It is a powerful tool to cope with the hectic pace of modern life.
Today, for most people, the word “yoga” usually conjures up images of twisting the body into impossible postures. The physical aspect of yoga is only one facet of this multi-dimensional science. Yoga is a technology to bring the body and mind to the peak of their capabilities – allowing one to live life to the fullest.
It is the vision of Sadhguru to offer “one drop of spirituality” to every individual. Through the Isha Kriya guided meditation, the possibilities of a spiritual process, which were once available only to yogis and ascetics, are now being offered to every human being in the comfort of their own home.
Sadhguru, a yogi, mystic, poet and visionary humanitarian, is a spiritual master with a difference. His life and work are a possibility for each individual to experience the peace and joy that pervades the core of every human being. It is Sadhguru’s vision that everyone receives ‘one-drop of spirituality’, allowing them to transform their lives and take their destiny into their hands.
