This meditation creates a field of protection around you, giving you strength and confidence. It also works to open the heart chakra and and sends love into the universe.

Meditation for Protection and Projection:
Tune in to your meditation practice with ‘Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo’ (repeat 3 times).
Focus and Mantra: Your eyes are focused on your 3rd eye point. Sit in easy pose, with your chest out and your chin in (‘neck lock’). Your hands are in prayer pose at your heart centre, with your thumbs crossed (left thumb on top for women, right thumb on top for men).
Movement: Begin with hands in prayer pose. With each line of the mantra, extend your arms to 60 degrees (see photo above). Between each line, inhale and come back to prayer pose.
Mantra: Aad Guray Nameh,
Jugaad Guray Nameh,
Sat Guray Nameh,
Siri Guru Devay Nameh
Time: 11 to 31 minutes. You can start off with 3 minutes and build up to longer.
To finish: Inhale deeply, hold the breath, exhale. Repeat 2 times and relax.
Music: In class we used SatKirin Kaur Khalsa’s Meditation for a Wise Heart- Aad Guray Nameh (from the album ‘Blessings of a Woman’). Snatnam Kaur also does a wonderful version of ‘Aad Guray Nameh’.
