EGO ERADICATOR


1-3 minutes Pranayama

If you want to strengthen yourself in the year 2024: The ego eradicator could be a great exercise for you. It opens the lungs and the heart, consolidates the magnetic field, brings the brain hemispheres to a state of alertness and helps to set us free from negative self-talk.




GET READY FOR 2024 AND THE NUMBER 8

From a numerogical point of view the year 2024 is a number 8 (2+2+4 = 8). In Kundalini Yoga the 8 corresponds with the 8th, the Pranic Body, which is part of our electro magnetic field, the Aura. By breathing our Pranic Body continuously brings the life force and energy into our systems. This allows us to feel fearless, fully alive, and at one with all creation. When your Pranic Body is strong, and your breathing is deep and relaxed, nothing can bother you. On the other hand: All disease starts with an imbalance in the Pranic Body. If our Eighth Body is weakened, we may suffer from low-level anxiety and chronic fatigue.



IMBALANCE OF THE PRANIC BODY CAN BE CAUSED BY:

  • not sleeping enough

  • eating high levels of acidic or processed foods

  • Dehydration

  • Alcohol or drug use

  • not getting enough exercise

 

THE PRANIC BODY CAN BE STRENGTHENED BY:

  • Aerobic exercise

  • Quality time in nature

  • All forms of pranayama



The Ego Eradicator is an important Pranayam: The Breath of Fire comes in combination with a posture that helps to build and strengthen our electromagnetic fields. In Kundalini Yoga the thumb represents the ego. In this exercise the thumbs are stretched up reaching towards the heavens. This invites the Ego to surrender.


You can do Ego Eradicator for 1-3 minutes (for beginners) or even longer if you are used to it. It is a wonderful way to connect yourself with your subtle bodies. A strong Pranic Body is something you would like to want in the year 2024.


 

"Love is a process in which ego is lost and infinity is experienced.“

Yogi Bhajan

 

Before you start the practice, please tune in. By tuning in you connect yourself through the vibration of the mantra with the energy of all the Kundalini masters, also called the golden chain. By chanting you get in contact with the universe which is receptive on a certain frequency.



PLEASE NOTE:

Don't practice if you are pregnant or menstruating.



HOW TO DO EGO ERADICATOR

Sit in Easy pose with a straight spine. Chin slightly tucked in. Curl the fingertips onto the pads on the base of the finger. Bring the straight arms into a 60 degree angle. Try to keep the arms straight. Stretch your thumbs away from your palms so they’re pointing towards one another above your head. Eyes are closed. Focus on the Third Eye. Start Breath of Fire.


Breath of Fire is rapid, rhythmic, and continuous. It is equal on the inhale and the exhale, with no pause between them. (Approximately 2-3 cycles per second.) Ego Eradicator is practiced through the nostrils with mouth closed. If you don't know what is Breath of Fire, I recommend you to read my other post about Breath of Fire first.






To End:

Inhale deeply, exhale fully. Relax the arms, keep the eyes closed and observe the impact of the practice for a couple of moments.


To end the practice please tune out.
