The Mercury Projection Meditation
This meditation can really help us through Mercury Retrograde periods.
“This is called the ‘Mercury Projection.’ Mercury is the Lord of Communication, the Star of Communication. This meditation will make your mind most alert. You as a human cannot afford to be wrong. You want to be a yogi? I think all these mudras and postures are meant to put in us infinite alertness. Sometimes the rhythmic flare of the Sun differs with the magnetic rhythm of the under flow of the Earth. Technically this meditation is for the control of the Mercury influence in you. The little finger is connected to Mercury.” – Yogi Bhajan.
1. Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine and a light neck lock (chin pulled in slightly to straighten the spine at the neck)
Elbows are bent at the sides.
2. With arms along the side of the body and elbows bent, place the hands in front of the heart center, palms facing each other, fingers pointing up and spread slightly apart.
3. The Mudras:
Mudra Part 1:
a. Stretch the thumbs back, pointing towards the chest. Bring the tips of the thumbs, index and middle fingers together. You could draw a short and wide triangle between the tips of the fingers.
b. The ring and pinkie fingers do not touch, and are separated from one another by several inches. The palms are also stretched wide apart.
Mudra Part 2: Holding the mudra, bring the palms toward one another slightly, just until the tips of the pinkie fingers can touch. Make sure that the ring fingertips DO NOT touch.
4. Focus eyes at the tip of the nose.
5. Chant the mantra Wahe Guru in a continuous monotone, with a steady rhythm.
6. Repeat the mantra one full time in Position 1, and then chant the mantra one full time in Position 2. Each repetition takes about 1 1/2 seconds.
Pronounce each syllable distinctly: Wah – hay – gu – roo
Mercury Retrograde is a Time when We Need our Intuition to be Finely Tuned!
Strengthen your meditative mind and learn to walk through life deeply connected to the wisdom of your Soul in this online workshop with Mahan Rishi
Distraction. Business. Drama. Stress.
All of these things are constantly spinning around in our minds, cluttering up our ability to go within and listen to the intuitive wisdom that exists within everyone.
Many people think that developing your intuition is all about being able to predict the future. As your intuition develops, that can happen, but it’s not the ultimate goal.
What we are really looking for
is the ability to approach our lives from
a place of knowing.
The goal is to assess what is happening without conscious thought, effortlessly dropping into our intuitive wisdom. When this happens, it allows you to see the true nature of things rather than an illusion derived from your false conditioned responses.
When you are living your life from an intuitive place with a strong meditative mind, you are cultivating your lucidity so that it matches the space of pure consciousness. You are able to easily transcend the noise of the mind and move into a tranquil state of mind that is open, receptive, and transformative. You are able to let go of the struggle of your mind and drop into the natural flow of the soul. You are able to truly relax and enjoy your life.
In this workshop, Mahan Rishi shares the wisdom he has been cultivating throughout decades of teaching so that you gain full appreciation for what it means to be an intuitive being. He offers Kundalini Yoga meditations, mantras and pranayams that will strengthen your meditative mind so that you walk through life deeply connected to the wisdom of your Soul.
