If addiction is something you’ve dealt with, or are dealing with, this practice could be a very important tool for you. This practice is not, however, just for people who are addicted in the classical, medical way that we usually think of when we hear the word “addiction”. This meditation can help anyone. We all have addictions, whether it is an addiction to a certain mental habit, a certain style of communication, or an insecurity tendency. Start doing this meditation for 5-7 minutes (as in this video), and over time you can work up to 31 minutes. As with any power practice, you will get the most powerful benefits if you use it consistently.
Please start by watching the intro video in full, and then proceed to the Power Practice below. Make sure to reference the Power Practice supplement videos to the right for extra guidance with the Kundalini Yoga system.
[Guidelines for Women: Women who are menstruating (on the first 3 days of the cycle) or are pregnant should avoid breath of fire and other exercises that powerful engage the navel center like Stretch Pose or Sat Kriya. Inverted poses where the legs are lifted higher then the naval point should also be avoided. Long deep breathing can be done in the place of breath of fire. Resting in childs pose or savasana, during poses like stretch pose, is also encouraged. Any person with a known medical condition should always consult their physician before engaging in yoga practice.]
