When you're pissed, do this:
MEDITATION FOR RELEASING ANGER & NEGATIVITY:
Chant Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo three times.
Sit in Rock or Easy Pose, with light jalandhar bandh (neck lock).
Eyes are closed.
Mudra: Touch each thumb to the base of the Mercury (pinky) fingers. Close the rest of the fingers over the thumbs to form fists.
Raising the arms, begin a backstroke type movement over the head, alternating each side (right/left) as you swing up, over and back around again.
Breath: Through O-shaped mouth, begin strong, rhythmic inhale/exhale in sync with arm movements.
The mudra, movement and breathing are continuous and strong.
Intentionally think about anything and everything that makes you angry, weird, negative, or commotional. Continue this laser focus on bringing up the anger throughout the meditation, increasing the movement and breath.
To End: Interlock the fingers, stretch the arms up over head, palms facing up, deep inhale through the O mouth- picture yourself surrounded in white, healing light- exhale out the O mouth. Repeat 3 times.
Time: 3 minutes.
To seal this work chant Sat Nam 1-3 times.
I learned this from the lovely Kewal Kaur, who teaches Yoga West's new Yoga for the Heart class, Monday at 11 a.m.
Please never do this meditation for more than three minutes but if needed, practice twice a day -- in the morning and then in the evening.
Another Kewal Kaur pearl: you can't be kind to others until you're kind to yourself.
So clear the anger and be on your way.
