Yoga Nidra - Guided Meditation
Yog-Nidra is an ancient tantric method, which can open new capacities of mind. Stress, frustrations, insomnia, and psychosomatic diseases which have become a part of modern man's life, are being caused by our unstable mind. Unknowingly, we hurt ourselves and hold people and situations responsible for our turmoil. Yog-Nidra gives us an opportunity to understand our mind and cuts through its blind conditionings. Yog-Nidra means sleeping consciously. It is a kind of deep sleep in which you don't loose consciousness. It is a more efficient and effective form of psychic and physiological rest and rejuvenation. Normally, when people sleep, they do not unburden totally. They carry their frustrations, conflict, pain, and turmoil with them, hence, sleep never goes deep. Due of this, there remains great tension in mind and body. The practice of Yog-Nidra not only relaxes but restructures and reforms our whole personality from within. If you practice Yog-Nidra, then the nature of your mind can be changed, diseases can be cured and your creative genius can be restored. The sub-conscious mind and the unconscious mind are the most powerful forces in the human being. Sub-conscious mind is a very obedient disciple and it immediately carries out the orders that you put to it. In Yog-Nidra, the most effective means of training the mind is found in sankalpa (resolution), which you make for yourself during each practice. Anything in life can fail you but not your sankalpa. It is an important stage of Yog-Nidra and a powerful way of reshaping your personality and giving a new direction in life along positive lines.
