Shambhavi (kriya 12)

This is the twelfth of the twenty Kundalini Kriyas of Kriya Yoga. If you have not completed my free online course, please download and complete that first.

Continue sitting in Siddhasana or Siddha Yoni Asana. Eyes are closed, breathing is normal, tongue is in Kechari Mudra, and head is facing forward. Visualize a lotus flower at Sahasrara closed like a bud. Its green stem goes down to Ajna and follows the Awarohan passage down to Mooladhara where the roots spread into the ground. Exhale and focus on Mooladhara then begin Ujjayi inhalation while moving your concentration up along the stem in the spine. At the end of inhalation, your concentration reaches the bud at Sahasrara.

With the breath held, watch the bud open into a beautiful lotus flower then close again back into a bud. Watch this opening and closing for as many times as you are able then begin Ujjayi exhalation down along the stem in the spine. At Mooladhara, with the breath held out, visualize the roots spreading out in all directions then begin the next round. Complete five rounds, then go to the next kriya.

A video describing and demonstrating this kriya will be posted with kriya 20.
