Guru Gaitri Mantra for Prosperity and to remove blocks
This mantra fixes the mind to prosperity and gives power to break down barriers of the past. It converts fear to determination and invokes guidance. All powers come to serve your true purpose.
Duration: Do twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening before bed. 5 or 10 minutes each time. In addition, and if possible, have a recording of the mantra play (in another room) softly so that you can fall asleep to it. It should be audible.
Body posture and mudra: Seated comfortably on your bed or mat Hand Mudra: Left hand should be on your left knee in a mudra. Thumb tip and one finger touch, Choose one that resonates with you. Thumb tip to –
Index (Jupiter) Finger = For wisdom & to remove obstacles
Middle (Saturn) = Inner purity, patience & help for getting through challenges
Ring (Sun) = Health, vitality, prosperity & friendship
Pinky (Mercury) = Clear mind & communication
Right hand is on upper middle part of chest slightly above heart, fingers together pointing to the left.
Mantra: “Har” amplifies power to manifest. The rest of the words refer to different aspects of the Divine. Each time you chant “Har” pump your navel in. Chant on your own or accompanied by music (I recommend “Prosper” by Joseph Michael Levy available on Spotify—it’s 12 minutes). When chanting use the tip of the tongue, enunciate clearly.
As with any Kundalini Yoga meditation, always begin by chanting the Adi Mantra: “Ong Namo, Guru Dev Namo” (I bow to the creative wisdom within.)

Meditation to Break Habits
Stress puts your body and mind into "fight-or-flight" mode, which causes you to respond to challenges impulsively and seek immediate gratification (think social media, food, alcohol, shopping sprees). When we practice Kundalini yoga the combination of breathwork, postures, hand gestures, eye focus and chanting of mantras calms the central nervous system. "Yoga’s combination of slow, focused breathing, moderate physical effort and heart rate, and balanced autonomic nervous system, shifting the brain and body into this 'willpower' state,'" explains Kelly McGonigal, PhD, a psychologist, yoga teacher, and author of the book The Willpower Instinct: How Self-Control Works, Why It Matters, and What You Can Do to Get More of It. "Yoga teaches you how to embody willpower, so we’re less likely to respond to every challenge with a stress response."
After our vigorous kriya we’ll reset the body, mind and spirit in savasana accompanied by the mystical sounds of the gong. After few minutes in savasana we'll be primed for the Habitutation Meditation.
Habituation Meditation Instructions:
Make fists and press the thumbs on the indentations of the temples. Lock the back molars together with closed mouth. Focus the eyes between the eyebrows. Breathe normally. Silently repeat ‘Sa Ta Na Ma.’ On each sound vibrate the jaw muscles by pressing the molars together and releasing. As you press you will feel a movement at the temples.
This meditation is known to break the persistence of substance abuse. It triggers a reflex in the brain and affects the pituitary and pineal gland known to recalibrate addictive patterning.
Begin with 5 – 7 minutes and gradually work up to 31 minutes for 40 days to break a habit.
