This is a wonderful and easy meditation “Access The Neutral Mind This Holiday Season” which can be viewed online by Tommy Rosen. Mr. Rosen leads yoga workshops around the globe. His meditation requires chanting internally (chanting inside our head not audibly). The syllables we will be chanting are Wah-Hay-Goo-Roo. The word Waheguru is an expression that means “there is ecstasy in moving from darkness to light.” Chanting these syllables inside your head will have a calming effect and helps stop the mind chatter. (This is our revisited post from December 20, 2013. It feels even more appropriate to consider practicing during December, 2020.)
Begin by sitting up tall with your spine straight and a sense of relaxation through your body. Place your hands in your lap; right hand sits in the palm of your left hand.
Close your eyes and focus them up to your brow point. Inhale deeply, pause your breath for a few seconds and then exhale.
Start repeating Wah-Hay-Goo-Ro inside your head. Focus your eyes slightly above and between the your eyebrows. Remember where the eyes go, the energy flows.
You can begin for three minutes and gradually increase the meditation to 11 minutes. To end the meditation, take a deep inhale, pause for a few seconds and exhale. Stay still for a moment feeling the subtle shift this has caused in your body and mind.
