Reflection on 40 days of Kundalini Cleansing and Habit Breaking (and My Next 40 Days)

A while ago I wrote about starting a 40 day practice that involved the Beginners Cleansing Kriya and the Medical Meditation for Habituation. The other day I finished the set and I have a few reflections:

  1. The cleansing set worked in a very subtle way.
  2. About halfway in I began feeling to considerably lighten my diet.
  3. I realized it’s tricky to do a kriya that involves a lot of lying on your back doing breath of fire at 5 something in the morning when you don’t sleep that much.
  4. I really appreciated the part of the Kriya with the legs spread apart. It helped me open a part of the grion that a lot of men have wound up pretty tight.
  5. The Medical Meditation for Habituation rocks.
  6. At first I becan to notice very clearly when I acted out of habit. I gave myself license to do so, trusting that as the meditation continued I would begin not giving into the habits. It worked.
  7. Some of the habits I had a goal of breaking definitely ended or faded off considerably
  8. I also began to notice a lot of things I do in relation to interacting with other people and speaking my truth that I had not intended. This meditation works across the board of both habits we have awareness of and those we do not.
  9. I am going to extend the meditation to 90 days.
  10. I am changing my kriya to something much more active.

While on a recent trip to Mexico to visit my Shaman Godfather in SacBe, he taught me a series of exercises he said “Keep me alive.” The work with the 13 major articulations of the body (1 neck, 2 shoulders, 2 elbows, 2 wrists, 2 hip joints, 2 knees, 2 ankles) and the twenty fingers and toes. 13 and 20 lie at the root of the sacred Mayan mathmetical and calendric system. The exercise involves moving each articulation a multiple of 13 times. Many of the movements model Kundalini and Hatha exercises. So, I decided to do this as my next 40 day kriya.

Along with it I am also adding in a auric kriya that involves flapping your arms like a big bird for three minutes and then sitting still for one minute.

I any one would like to begin dissolving habitual patterns in their lives I suggest the meditation for habituation.
