40 Days Meditating To Create Self Love
I decided to practice this meditation for 40 days in conjunction with the Kriya To Make You Beautifully Enchanting.
During those forty days, I noticed a transformation in my thoughts and in my perspective of myself.
I have noticed that this meditation helped me stay alert and grateful for all the wonderful things that happen in my daily life, some of which I sometimes take for granted.
I had days when I faced the reality of how I am my worst critic, and how there are limiting beliefs in my life that when I am planning or creating always come and want to sabotage my ideas. This meditation gave me an internal strength to recognize them as mine, accept them and at the same time, release them with gratitude. In my opinion, the greatest gift of this meditation was opening my heart to love myself and see myself with more compassion; and I found that when I do that, I also have an internal regulator to be more present to have compassion for others.
If we reflect on this moment of life, we will surely agree that now more than ever we need to have a strong self-esteem, and the cultivation of our own love is necessary and super important in our daily lives. We are full of information, we have it just with one click; and we need to have the sovereignty of our being to discern what is and what is not, what resonates and what does not resonate with our being. We are co-creators of our life and our reality and today more than ever that responsibility requires moments of prayer, silence, contemplation and gratitude.
This kriya helps to open the heart, create a positive relationship with oneself, and strengthen our ability to receive love.
This exercise is called Reverse Adi Shakti Kriya. Here you are blessing yourself mentally and hypnotically. This own blessing must affect and correct the magnetic field. It is said that doing this exercise will hurt if you have a lot of anger. Self-help is very difficult for those who are angry. After doing this exercise for 5 minutes, your muscles may start to ache. The taste of your mouth will change if you breathe correctly.
Posture: Sit in an easy pose with your spine straight and hold your right palm six to nine inches above the top center of your head. The right palm looks down, blessing you. This self-blessing corrects the aura. The left elbow is bent with the upper arm close to the rib cage. The forearm and hand point upward. The left palm faces forward and blesses the world.
Eyes: The eyes are closed and focus on the lunar center in the middle of the chin.
Breathing: Breathe long, slow, and deep with a feeling of self-affection. Try to bring your breath to one breath per minute: inhale for 20 seconds, hold for 20 seconds, exhale for 20 seconds. * * If your current lung capacity does not allow this time, reduce each part to 10, 10, 10 or 5, 5 , 5.
Time: Continue for 11 minutes. Then take a deep breath and move slowly and directly to the position in exercise 2.
This exercise will benefit everything between the neck and the navel. It will strengthen the heart and open the heart center.
Posture: Extend your arms forward, parallel to the ground, palms down. Stretch to the max.
Eyes: The eyes are closed and focused on the lunar center in the center of the chin.
Breathing: breathing is long, slow, and deep.
Time: Continue for 3 minutes. Then take a deep breath and move slowly and directly to the position for exercise 3.
Posture: Stretch your arms up with your palms facing forward. There is no flex in the elbows.
Eyes: the eyes are closed and focused on the lunar center (chin).
Breathing - Breathing is still long, slow, and deep.
Time: Continue for 3 minutes.
To finish: Inhale, hold your breath for 10 seconds while stretching your arms up (try to stretch so much that your glutes are raised) and tense all the muscles of your body. Exhale. Repeat this breath two more times.
The Kriya is found in Self-Knowledge compiled by Harijot Kaur, p. 11, available from KRI.

Such an amazing article! I have tried to practice meditation many times, but due to the pace of my life and constant anxiety I cannot relax and breathe properly. Various thoughts constantly creep into my head. There is a constant feeling that I am late somewhere, and I must rather run somewhere, do something. no matter how hard I try, I can't relax. Could you give some advice on what to do in such a situation? How to drive away thoughts from yourself and help yourself just breathe?
