Meditation Series – Meditation from my Yogateacher training based on the Vijñāna Bhairava

In my last Yogateacher Training we wrote a guided meditation based on the Vijñāna Bhairava. Today I want to share my meditation with you.

Wherever the mind delights, let your attention linger there (in the felt sense of that rapture). In any such experience, the true nature of supreme bliss may shine forth. 

Vijñāna Bhairava, Verse 74

Guided Meditation:

Lie down on your mat in Shavasana. Put a blanket under your head and a bolster under your knees. The blanket should touch your shoulders, choose the height of the blanket as high as it feels comfortable for you.

Position your legs hip-wide, your heels touch the mat or floor.

Place your arms next to you, leave a little bit space between your body and your arms, your palms are facing upwards.

Close your eyes.

Take a deep breath in and out, 3 times.

Go through your body and feel the contact points on the mat.

  • Your heels
  • Your knees on the bolster
  • Your bottom on the mat
  • Your lower back on the mat
  • Your middle / upper back on the mat
  • Your palms on the mat or floor
  • Your forearms
  • Your upper arms
  • Your shoulders on the mat
  • Your head on the blanket

Now concentrate on all contact points at once.

Take a deep breath in and out, 3 times.

Imagine a situation that has fulfilled you with joy.

Imagine the situation in your mind.

How did you feel?

Why did the situation fulfill you with so much joy?

Deepen your breath again, come back into your body on the mat.

How does your body feel now?

Move your feet and hands slowly.

Strech your body.

Lie down on your right side.

Open your eyes slowly.

When you’re ready come into a seat with Anjali mudra.

Om chant, 3 times
