A Meditation given by Swami Nishchalananda on the recent Kundalini Meditation Retreat

Bring your awareness to the physical body and the contact with the ground. Know that this moment is a moment in Eternity...

If we go deep enough in our understanding we realise that in this moment the past and the future do not exist. There is just the vibrancy of this moment. We live our lives in time- which is represented by the Chakras- our actions, words and feelings all take place in time. But simultaneously there is constant awareness, which is out of time. Awareness puts us in touch with the Timeless. Time is the realm of change, where everything changes whereas Awareness is unchanging.

Feel your body as a empty vessel and bring your awareness to the space within. Imagine that your physical body is completely surrounded by a rainbow of vibrant colours. The colours are mysterious in themselves.

The red colour descends to penetrate the Mooladhara where it spreads out to fill the whole body and mind in red scintillating energy.

The orange colour descends from the rainbow to penetrate Swadhisthana chakra. There it spreads out to fill the whole body and mind which resonates in an orange energy field.

The yellow colour descends from the rainbow to penetrate the abdominal space of Manipura. There you see the yellow blazing like the sun which spreads out to fill the whole body and mind with a yellow scintillating energy.

The green colour descends from the rainbow to penetrate the heart space of Anahata. There it spreads out to fill the whole body and mind, so they are filled with a green scintillating energy field.

The blue colour descends from the rainbow to penetrate the throat space of the Vishuddhi. There it spreads out to fill the whole body and mind with a scintillating field of blue energy.

The mauve colour descends from the rainbow to penetrate the head space of the Agya. There it spreads out to fill the whole body and mind which resonate in a mauve scintillating energy field.

Our sensory impressions are not conscious in themselves, we are conscious of them; we can objectify them.

Our sexual energy is not conscious in itself, we are conscious of it; we can objectify this energy. Our actions and our vital energy are not conscious in themselves, we are conscious of this energy; we can objectify it.

Our thoughts are not conscious in themselves, we are conscious of them; we can objectify them.

Our mental patterns are not conscious in themselves, we are conscious of them, we can objectify them.

When we receive insights and intuitions they not conscious in themselves, we are conscious of them; we can objectify them.

The only principle that we cannot objectify is that which objectifies - the Knower, the Conscious Principle, that which cannot be known by the mind but which knows the mind. You cannot objectify this Conscious Principle. For the sake of practice it is symbolised by the full moon of the Bindu.

We chant Om once to finish the practice and to acknowledge the primacy of Conciousness.
