Yoga Nidra - Secrets of Total Transformation
Yoga Nidra' (Preview part 2) meditation method for complete relaxation by Anandmurti Gurumaa. 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. We burn old sansakaras, habits and tendencies in order to be born anew with every Yog-Nidra session. 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. When conscious mind and body is in deep relaxation, at that time whatever sankalpa (resolution) you will make, it will get fulfilled. The resolution you make at the beginning of the practice is like sowing a seed and the resolution at the end is like irrigating it.
