The five elements are a Taoist system that uses the cycles of nature to inform and balance our health and well-being. The five elements are earth, metal, water, wood, and fire. 

An easy way to bring good feng shui into your living room is to include something from each of the five elements in your space.

Here's an easy overview of the five elements using color and shape:

  • Earth is earthy brown, orange, yellow colors, and flat, square shapes.
  • Metal is white, gray, metallic colors, and spherical, round shapes.
  • Water is black, very dark blue colors, and curvy, wavy shapes.
  • Wood is blue, green colors, and rectangular, columnar shapes.
  • Fire is fiery, red colors, and triangular shapes.

This kriya energizes you and helps purify the mind and body. It is an excellent kriya to prepare yourself before giving healing, relaxing massage to someone. If you are a professional massage therapist, it can help you sustain your energy and prevent you from getting drained. The exercise sequence guides energy up along the spine, opens the chakras and then expands the aura.

Exercise 1 will raise the sexual and digestive energies of the body.
Exercise 2 takes energy past the Diaphragm Lock and opens the lungs and Throat Center.
Exercise 3 opens the heart and the central channel of the spine,
Exercises 4 and 5 increase healing power in the hands, circulation to the upper body, and steadiness of concentration.

  1. Stand up. Extend one leg back as far as you can with the top of the foot on the ground; the opposite knee bends until the thigh is almost parallel with the ground. Most of the pressure will be on the bent leg. Put the palms together at the center of the chest. Focus at the Brow Point. In this position, take three deep breaths, holding the inhalation for about 8 seconds each time. Come back to standing and switch to the opposite leg and take three deep breaths on this side, holding the inhalation for about 8 seconds each time. Repeat twice more on each side.
  2. Sit in Easy Pose. Place the hands on the hips. Lift the diaphragm high. Raise both shoulders as high as possible. Inhale and exhale very deeply while holding this posture. Continue 2-3 minutes.
  3. Sit in Easy Pose, and bring the hands into Bear Grip (hook the fingers together at the center of the chest) with the right palm facing down. Forearms and elbows are parallel to the ground. Inhale deeply. Exhale forcefully and completely and apply mulbandh. Inhale and hold the breath, apply mulbandh and mentally raise the pranic energy from the base of the spine to the crown. Continue this breath cycle for 3 minutes. 
  4. Sit in Easy Pose, Extend the arms out the sides, parallel to the ground. Press the palms out with the fingers pointing up. Roll the eyes up and focus at the Brow Point. Inhale deeply-hold the breath while applying a firm mulbandh for 20 seconds. Then exhale and repeat. Continue for 2-3 minutes.
  5. In Easy Pose, press the palms together-about 2-3 inches in front of the chest-with the fingers pointing up. Pull the spine straight. Press with 30-50 pounds of pressure. Hold the position for 2 minutes. Then relax.

Speaking of Kundalini: The Adi Mantra 3-7-2020

At the beginning of every Kundalini yoga class, we tune-in together with the Adi Mantra, a chant whose words are “Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo.”

In Kundalini yoga, this is the first mantra that should be used for any yogic or meditative practice. It is used to tune in before Kundalini Yoga classes.

The Adi Mantra provides a pivotal moment at the start of a yoga practice that tells the mind to put the to-do list on hold, forget the time, and completely let go, so we can have a full experience of yoga.

According to Webster’s, “tune in” means “to adjust a radio or television to receive.” The Adi Mantra calls on us to open and receive our own subtle, internal wisdom, to adjust ourselves on a deep, soul level to listen to our inner guidance.

“Ong” is the creative energy and “Namo” means to bow or call on. Spoken together, “Ong Namo” means to call on our highest consciousness to receive. “Guru” means teacher, literally one who brings us from darkness into light. “Dev” means subtle or divine. Together, “Guru Dev Namo” calls on the divine teacher within to guide us.

The Adi Mantra is the meditative link between the student as a finite, physical, human being, and the student who is an infinite consciousness. By chanting this mantra, we lean toward dissolving the “self” as a human who has an ego so we can allow the flow of the universal consciousness to come through us as we practice.

Here’s what the Gurmukhi words mean:
Ong: The creative energy of the cosmos
Namo: To bow to
Guru: Wisdom, teacher or source of knowledge
Dev: Subtle, etheric, divine
Namo: To bow to
