Let's talk Meditation! Whether we realise it or not, most of us do a lot of things without really thinking and often react to our environment rather than being intentional about our thoughts and behaviors. For example, we might drive to work, wash dishes or eat a meal without really being aware of what is happening.
When I started practicing Kundalini yoga, the meditation aspect helped me to form all my other habits and it helped me to become more peaceful, more focused, less worried about discomfort, more appreciative, and attentive to everything in my life.
Kundalini meditation is part of Kundalini yoga and is meant to move energy through the body. It is based on the concept that energy at the base of the spine (also known as the root chakra) needs to be released through the seven chakras of the body and then out through the crown chakra above the head. The practice should be thought of as a technique, as opposed to a belief system, that helps people clear away the clutter of the world and access the inner self. I attribute my ability to cope with all my PMDD symptoms to Kundalini yoga.
I'm far from perfect, but it has helped me come a long way. Probably most importantly it helped me to understand myself better (not completely, but better), and that has given me increased flexibility and freedom.
So … I highly recommend meditation, doesn't need to be kundalini. And while I’m not saying it’s easy, you can start small and get better and better as you practice. Don’t expect to be good at first — that’s why it’s called “practice”!
