My Experience with Sodarshan Chakra Kriya 💫⁣

Yogi Bhajan said that of all the 20 types of yoga, including Kundalini Yoga, this is the highest Kriya. That it cuts through all the darkness and gives you a new start. ⁣
⁣✨
In an article by @kellybroganmd I read a statistic that said this Kriya was studied to be 74% effective at treating depression and anxiety even where medication was ineffective.⁣
⁣✨
With these statements I was naturally really drawn to the practice.⁣

The beginning days of the practice were beautiful. I had more energy, lightness, and joy throughout my day. I was absolutely loving the meditation!⁣
⁣✨
And then as I made it into my last week this week, the subconscious beliefs started to come up. Things I thought I had long since dealt with, and also other beliefs I didn’t even realize were holding me back. ⁣
⁣✨
Deep existential questions at the root of my battle with depression started to arise. ⁣
⁣✨
Is it even possible to make a difference in the world? ⁣
⁣✨
Will my life have any lasting meaning? ⁣
⁣✨
Are we just under the control of people with more money/status/power than us? ⁣
⁣✨
Should I just give up and play my role? ⁣
⁣✨
Are my life goals fuelled by ego, or a genuine desire to heal and connect? ⁣
⁣✨
Deep questions I know 😂 ⁣

Kundalini Yoga is this powerful tool that asks us to step up, ask ourselves the hard questions, and live a life that is about more than just ourselves. ⁣
⁣✨
After experiencing the depth of emotion that comes with those questions, I’m starting to feel a shift in the direction of my life. ⁣
⁣✨
I want my life to start being less about how much I can achieve, and more about how much I can help. ⁣
⁣✨
And I need to re-evaluate how I can better do that. So I’ve decided to turn this 40-day practice into a full 1000- day Sadhana. ⁣
⁣✨
I’m grateful for the depth of this practice and the changes it brings to me on a daily basis 🙏🏼 ⁣
