WHERE THIS WAS FILMED
This magical location is where Rachel grew up - Emily Bay beach on gorgeous Norfolk Island. It's the most perfect beach we've ever visited and if you'd like to experience it for yourself then be sure to check out Tintoela Luxury Retreat.
WHY I LOVE THIS MEDITATION by RACHEL
I have been practicing Antar Naad Mudra, also called Kabadshe Meditation, daily for 5 years now. This practice brings great comfort. It tunes me into my entire body and being, allowing my energy to flow with the greater energy that surrounds me. It calibrates me and allows me to project my pure self into my day, which, in turn, sets and projects the tone for my day.
I would love to know what you experience with this meditation. Please leave a comment in the Comments section.
“Saa Ray Saa Saa, Saa Ray Saa Saa,
Saa Ray Saa Saa, Saa Rung
Har Ray Har Har, Har Ray Har Har,
Har Ray Har Har, Har Rung"
Keep the spine straight. Let the arms extend straight and rest over the knees. Make Buddhi Mudra with both hands (touch the thumb tips to the tips of the little fingers). The other fingers are relaxed but straight. Become completely still, physically and mentally, like a calm ocean. If listening to the mantra recorded, listen to the chant for a minute. Feel its rhythm in every cell. Then join in the mantra.
Practice this meditation for 11 to 31 minutes.
Antar Naad Mudra is the meditation that opens the chakras for the full effect of any other mantra. It is a sensitizing meditation for the impact of the inner sound current. It is the base of all mantras. The original practice of mastery in mantra required that you master this before any other mantra practice. The esoteric structure of the mantra is coded in the qualities each of the sounds represent, and the rhythm that weaves them together into a coherent and powerful effect.
SAA means the Infinite, the totality, God. It is the element of ether. It initiates and contains all other effects. It is subtle and beyond. HAR is the creativity of the earth. It is the dense element. It is the power of manifestation, the tangible, the personal. These sounds are woven together then projected through the sound of UNG or complete totality, like the original sound AUM or ONG. Anyone who practices this meditation is granted prosperity, creativity, and protection against attacks. It gives new power to your words. It brings luck even if you are a scoundrel.
