Yoga Nidra – How to Use Words For a Persuasive Meditation

The20 Minute Yoga Nidra with gentle rain noises aids in deep spiritual relaxation by the effortless guidance of Nidra (light sleep). Let yourself become totally relaxed and be swept into a powerful state of restful nidras (light sleep). This soothing Nido is designed to produce a Sankalpa which fosters a positive kundalini awakening during the full moon night. Kundalini yoga is an ancient discipline that originates in India and has been refined and adapted for use in the West. It is the science of awakening the Kundalini shakti through appropriate breathing and meditation techniques.

The word “Nidra” means “to unite”. A sentence like this is enough to help you fully relax and become a well-settled state of mind. So, the next time you go to bed, imagine yourself in a peaceful, beautiful place of worship – where the sound of a devotional mantra is the only sound. Close your eyes and listen to the words: “I am the master of all beings. My eyes see the truth and my ears hear the voice of all things.”

The basic meaning of this sentence is “I existed at a time when the matter was but formless and energy was but vacuum. I created that which I desired from that which was preexisting.” Imagine how you can incorporate this simple yoga Nidra into your daily life. Whenever you feel yourself starting to get out of control, just recite this 20-minute guided meditation as often as you need to feel yourself settling down. This will help you bring that inner peace and calmness that you have always wanted.

Now, you might want to take a closer look at this beautiful sentence. You see, while it is true that the entire sentence was said over the phone some 20 minutes ago, it’s still relevant today because it describes the way most people feel about themselves at any point in time. If you’ve ever been unhappy or lost, you probably remember how you felt. Perhaps you were born under a starry sky, or you had hope for something impossible. These are all examples of how you feel about yourself at any particular moment.

A Much Ado

Yoga Nidra is simply a guided imagery exercise that you can do anywhere. It does not require any special skill. All you need to do is sit in a comfortable chair and focus on the breath while repeating the mantra as often as possible. In fact, after you do it a few times, you’ll start to remember more of the words than the actual sentences. The actual mantra is really nothing more than just a sentence repeated over again.

The beauty of the sentence above is that you’re not repeating something that was said a long time ago. You’re recreating a feeling that you had a few hours ago. That same feeling is going to be recreated whenever you do the same Yoga Nidra 20-minute practice.

When you think about it, the connection between the sentence and today is even more pronounced. The fact that you were born under a starry sky and that hope for something impossible is what caused that particular feeling in you two hours ago is actually true. This is what Yoga Nidra is doing; it’s recreating that same powerful feeling by using words that are repeated every day.

Bottom Line

Imagine how much stronger you’ll become after practicing Yoga Nidra for half an hour a day or, as my client did, practicing it for 7 hours every day. Imagine how much clearer you’ll be and how much more productive you’ll be. This simple technique is changing lives all over the world and, in my opinion, it’s changing lives right now, too. Don’t you want to experience it yourself?
