Meditation for Stress Relief
Stress Management Technique
Shadb Kriya works by combining the powerful stress reducing ability of yoga breathing exercises and known relaxation benefits of mantra meditation into one great technique. The end result is that if you are suffering from anxiety, stress, insomnia, excessive worrying, negative thinking, etc, this meditation technique demands an opportunity to help cure you of these disruptive ailments.
In the article Easy Meditation Technique for Total Stress Relief, I presented this technique but I do think a video demonstration is particularly helpful as there are many dimensions to this technique. Shabd Kriya utilizes hand mudras, eye mudras, yoga pranayama as well as mantra meditation to help attack stress from all angles. And how to combine all this correctly is what I show in this video.
In order to extract all the stress reducing benefits of this meditation, it is recommended you do this technique for a minimum of 11 minutes. If you can build up to 31 minutes that is even better and if you are particularly interested in treating insomnia with this technique, then you want to practice this meditation before sleep.
The breathing pattern used in this meditation is 4/16/2 (4 counts to inhale, 16 counts to hold breath in and just 2 counts on exhalation). To help you maintain this count, keep the mind away from endless thinking and derive the benefits of mantra (sound vibrations), the mantras Sa Ta Na Ma and Wahey Guru are also used.
This particular techniques comes from the school of Kundalini Yoga and will become part of the following free collections here on Mastery of Meditation and Yoga:
In addition all my meditation and yoga videos are hosted in my YouTube channel (http://www.youtube.com/anmolmehtacom). This is particularly useful if you have trouble viewing the video directly from my website.
