Meditation Series – Meditation from my Yogateacher training based on the Vijñāna Bhairava

In my last Yogateacher Training we wrote a guided meditation based on the Vijñāna Bhairava. Today I want to share my meditation with you.

Wherever the mind delights, let your attention linger there (in the felt sense of that rapture). In any such experience, the true nature of supreme bliss may shine forth. 

Vijñāna Bhairava, Verse 74

Guided Meditation:

Lie down on your mat in Shavasana. Put a blanket under your head and a bolster under your knees. See that the blanket touches your shoulder choose the height so that it feels comfortable for you.

Position your legs hip-wide, your heels touch the mat or floor.

Place your arms next to you, leave a little bit room between your body and your arms, your palms are facing upwards.

Close your eyes.

Take a deep breath in and out, 3 times

Go through your body and feel the contact points on the mat.

Your heels

Your knees under the bolster

Your bottom on the mat

Your lower back on the mat

Your middle / upper back on the mat

Your palms on the mat or floor

Your forearms

Your upper arms

Your shoulders on the mat

Your head on the blanket

Now concentrate on all contact points at once.

Take a deep breath in and out, 3 times

Imagine a situation that has fulfilled you with joy.

Imagine the situation in your mind.

How did you feel?

Why did the situation fulfill you with so much joy?

Deepen your breath again, come back into your body on the mat.

How does your body feel now?

Move your feet and hands slowly.

Strech your body.

Lie down on your right side.

Open your eyes slowly.

When you’re ready come into a seat with Anjali mudra.

Om chant, 3 times
