Here’s how to find emotional balance. (‘Sunia Antar’ in Kundalini or ‘Padadhirasana’ in Hatha traditions).
This technique is used in it’s particular tradition, it’s highly beneficial and really works!
This pose balances the two hemisphere of your brain and promotes a calm mind. Usually this technique is employed at the beginning, or end of a Hatha practice, or during a Kundalini meditational practice. It’s best to drink a glass of water before this practice. as when there is a water imbalance in the system, and the kidneys are under pressure, it can cause worry or upset to creep into your consciousness.
Sit in a cross legged position, and place your arms across your chest and lock your hands under your armpits, with palms open and against the body. Keep your thumbs pointing upwards. Raise the shoulders up tightly against the earlobes, without cramping your neck muscles. Keep your chin tucked into your throat. Breathe deeply and slowly through both nostrils (lips closed) for 3-11 minutes. You’ll find that your thoughts are still there, but you won’t ‘feel’ them; it’s a very effective method of balancing functional brain.
