Soaking your feet in salt water while meditating is called Foot Soaking.
This Sahaja Yoga technique relieves the body from stress and feels peaceful and relaxed.
Salt is added to the water represent the earth element which sucks or absorbs away negativity/toxins.
1. Foot Soaking
When the day is over, relax by soaking your feet in salt water.
This is best done at night before going to bed.
You will need a basin, salt, small container for rinsing water, and a small towel.
(Storing these items together will make it easier to do the Foot soak).
Light a candle (fire and light elements) in front of a photo of Shree Mataji.
Place your feet in a basin of cool or luke-warm* water containing a handful of salt
(water and earth elements).
Sit comfortably in a chair with hands, palms up, on your lap.
Raise the Kundalini and put on a bandhan
(See the notes below for these steps)
Meditate or/give vibrations to your chakras for 10-15 minutes or follow the 5 STEP MEDITATION, whilst your feet is in the water.
Finish by again raising the Kundalini and putting on a bandhan.
Rinse and dry your feet (use the clean water for rinsing).
Flush the foot soak water down the toilet.
Sit in meditation for 5 minutes or so.
Use the foot soak bowl only for foot soaking.
*If the right hand is heaviest, use cold water, if the left hand heavy, use warm water.
RAISING THE KUNDALINI & PUTTING ON A BANDHAN - Before and after meditation
The practice of raising our Kundalini and putting ourselves in Bandhan is an important step in readying ourselves for meditation or workshop or any other activity in life.
We use these simple steps to help bring our system into balance and to cover ourselves with a protective aura both before and after meditation.
The key thing to remember is that although we may not feel anything (in the early stages) whilst we are completing the procedure, it has a real effect on our subtle body.
Raising the Kundalini
It is our Kundalini energy, raising up the spine which takes our Attention higher into the state of 'Thoughtless Awareness'. This exercise helps to strengthen, steady and establish the Attention in the highest energy center, the Sahasrara Chakra.
Raising our own Kundalini, at the beginning and end of every meditation, helps to settle our subtle system into a more balanced state.
Begin with the left hand at the front at the level of the abdomen, palm facing towards the body. Whilst rotating the right hand around the left hand, move the left hand up the front of the body and over the head and tie a knot at the top to symbolically keep our Attention up there. Use this movement three times and on the third time tie three knots over the top of your head.
(1) Place the left hand in front of your lower abdomen, palm facing the body
(2) Raise the left hand up slowly, moving from the base of your torso to the top of your head. While the left hand is rising, the right hand rotates around it clockwise, (up from within, and then down without).
(3) Until both hands are above the head. Then use both hands to tie a knot.
(4) Repeat this three times, once for each channel. The third time, tie the knot three times
Putting on a Bandhan
A simple exercise to protect our subtle body, and preserve our state of meditation, is to put on a bandhan. This exercise should be done before and after meditation, just after raising the Kundalini (as above).
(1) Hold the left hand out on your lap (palm upwards) at the level of the waist with the fingers pointing towards the photography of Shree Mataji
(2) And slowly raise your right hand, starting at the level of the left hip, over the top of your head and down the right side of your body to the right hip.
(3) Then raise the right hand up the right channel, over your head where the Kundalini is flowing, and down the left side.
This movement should be done seven times (once for every Chakra in the subtle system)
Now that you followed the first guided meditation above and learnt how to learnt how to raise your Kundalini energy and put a protective shield around your subtle system (bandhan), let us Meditate.
How do we Meditate
You can either sit on the floor or on a chair, with your feet slightly apart, whichever is more comfortable for you.
Place both your hands on your lap - palms facing upwards.
Take a few deep breaths to help bring your attention inside and help you calm down.
Keep your attention on your both your palms and finger tips as well as the top of your head.
Should your attention deviate, bring it back to your hands and the top of your head.
Do not strain yourself in anyway. Just try to keep a relaxed attitude and attention whilst listening to this 2 minute calming instrumental music.
Remember, try to be thoughtlessness throughout... by keeping your attention on your palms and finger tips and top of your head - this should help your feel and enjoy the peaceful enjoy and experience. Keep your eyes closed through the meditation.
To Try to be aware of the sensations and if any vibrations coming out your hands or the top of your head e.g. tingling, pricking, coolness, heat etc.
Whatever we feel is the result of the inner energy working inside of us. Just be a witness to it. So let us pay attention to what is happening inside of us and continue to sit in SILENCE for 2 minutes as the music plays in the back ground.
Open your eyes once the music has stopped and then kindly Raise your Kundalini and giver your self a Band of protection, (As per above information).
*Please Note: We Raise our Kundalini and put the band of protection before and after our meditation sessions as well as when you get up in the morning and just before you go to bed in the evening.
