The various meditation techniques to reduce anxiety can be highly effective, often providing relief after only a week of regular practice.
This simple and effective tidbit of timeless wisdom comes from Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan through the presentation of Dr. Barry J. Goodman.
To Reduce Anxiety
The ‘Segmented Breath’ Meditation will ‘segment’, ‘sort’, and ‘solidify’ a new mental habit pattern when practiced regularly.
Inhaling over 4 segments, sustaining the breath over 4, exhaling the breath over 4, and sustaining the breath out for 4 in this 16 count pranayam(breath exercise) cycle will help to take large to small, overwhelming feelings to more manageable feelings.
Focusing at the brow point and silently vibrating the mantra of ‘truth as your identity’, “Sat Nam”, while playing the finger tips alternately from index to pinky to the counts of 4 makes this meditation exercise for the breath and the mind successful.
Stimulating coordination and relaxing in the left and right brain hemisphers, the optic nerves, the pituitary gland center as well as improving genral circulation and respiration, when practiced for 7, 11, 21, 30, 60, 90, 120 or 1000 days, you will enjoy its benefits.
There are no medical contraindication to this simple and effective complementary meditation. It will surely assist the pyschologist and physician in that the patient can look at gaining something back without adding more medication, and possibly reducing the need for some.
Working openly and honestly with your physicians can achieve this goal, as I have done being a yogi and a heart patient with my physicians(see my blog on the website)!!!
It is a wonderful brain coordination exercise for children struggling in school with ADD, ADHD, dyslectic tendencies.
Even though this is one of the more complicated meditation techniques to reduce anxiety, it’s worth your time if you suffer from anxiety.
