In Everyday Kundalini (Watkins Publishing, 2018), Kathryn McCusker explains how each of us can activate Kundalini through meditations, yoga poses, breathing techniques, and chanted mantras. Kundalini is a special life-force in each of us, the energy for which coils at the base of our spine, and by releasing it we can experience its healing and revitalizing powers. Through guided meditations and illustrated exercises, learn how the practice of Kundalini might best benefit you.

This meditation, known as Kirtan Kriya, creates emotional balance and increases intuition. Practising it will bring mental calm and strengthen your sense of self, as well as energizing your aura. It is especially helpful for women and can be used to cope with hormonal imbalances. It is also very good if you are pregnant. I love this meditation as it helps to release a lot of emotions and always brings me back to a place of deep inner calm and connection.

During this meditation you will use a mantra made up of five primal sounds — S, T, N, M, A, in their word form. Chanting these sounds allows you to tap into the continuous cycle of creation:

SA (“saah”) — “infinity” in Sanskrit
TA (“taah”) — “life”
NA (“naah”) — “death”
MA (“maah”) — “rebirth”

There is a special mudra associated with each sound of the mantra. Move your fingers through the mudras as you chant the syllables. In each case the tip of the thumb should create a firm pressure as it touches the tip of the other finger.

SA — Thumb and index finger (Gyan Mudra — for knowledge)
TA — Thumb and middle finger (Shuni Mudra — for patience)
NA — Thumb and fourth finger (Surya Mudra — for vitality)
MA — Thumb and little finger (Buddhi Mudra — for communication)
