In Kundalini Yoga, we have a teaching that we are much more than our physical bodies. In fact, we have 10 bodies in total – 10 subtle and energetic aspects of our beings that make up who we are. These range from the Positive Mind, to the Aura, to the Soul. Each of these 10 bodies has a very specific role. When they are in alignment they help us to live to our highest potential, our destiny.
This meditation engages The Arc Line, the energetic body which is said to be the place where we store our karmas. The Arc Line is often symbolised in pictures as a halo surrounding the head. You can see it in almost any famous painting of a saint, angel, or spiritual teacher. Women have a second Arc Line that reaches from nipple to nipple across the chest. It is in these two regions where we store past relationships and karmas.
A strong and clear Arc Line is energetically important in deflecting symptoms of depression. It’s our projection of our Arc Line that creates our reality. Hence we can either create ‘heaven’ or ‘hell’ on earth depending on the strength of our Arc Line (among many other things). It’s the foundation of the radiance. When we connect with our own joy, happiness, and light, we naturally project that out into the world. If The Arc Line is clear then we repel negativity easily from either our thoughts or external environment.
I invite you to practice this meditation with me to clear The Arc Line, and the karma that has been stocked up in it. This meditation is also used to help heal anxiety and depression. You’ll experience what Wahe Guru actually means (“the indescribable joy of going from the darkness to the light”).
Meditation For The Arc Line & to Clear the Karmas
If you are new to doing Kundalini Meditations on your own, make sure to read how to do a home practice before you begin. Use the video above for a guided practice, or the written instructions below.
Sit in easy pose or in a chair with a straight spine with a light neck lock (Jalandhar Bandh).
Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru, Wahe Guru Jio
Mudra and Movement
Relax the elbows down by the sides and bring the forearms straight out in front of your body, palms flat and facing up. Have the palms slightly cupped, and place them a few inches above the knees. Bring arms up, back behind head, stretching hands and arms as far back over shoulders as you can. Imagine you are scooping water and throwing it through your Arc Line, over your shoulders, with a flick of the wrists. The movement is slow and smooth and gracefully flows along with the lyrics and rhythm of the music. Each time you sing Wahe Guru, as well as on the Wahe Jio, do one complete round — scooping up, throwing over your shoulders and come back to the starting position. (Approximately 2 seconds per “scoop.”)
The eyes are closed.
Continue for 31 minutes.
Inhale and stretch your hands back as far as possible, hands right behind your head. Posture for the inhale must be correct. Hold 10-15 seconds. Repeat 3 times total. Relax.
“Remember, the power of Infinity is not outside of you — it is inside of you. When “I” and Infinity create impact, you’ll become totally divine. Otherwise, there’s a duality which keeps you away from reality, and the pain is humongous.” – Yogi Bhajan
