Every day there are moments that drive people crazy. Responsibilities at work, home or even school take up a lot of space, leaving you exhausted and unable to focus on your well-being.

The solution to this issue is simple – find a way to let go of everything and let joy and prosperity enter your life. I know it may seem impossible to reach absolute and unconditional happiness but thanks to kriya yoga meditation you can be a step closer to achieving this. You should only be patient and dedicated once you decide to practice this.

Before you do that, though, let’s see what kriya yoga truly is and which popular and efficient techniques you can try. Enjoy!

What Is Kriya Yoga – Basics

In its base, kriya yoga unites various meditation practices and techniques responsible for purifying the body and making people sincerely joyful. The two main aspects of it are energy and controlling the breath, which is how you get cleansed from all the negativity in your life.

Because of its power over people and their happiness, kriya yoga was nowhere to be found for a few centuries as it was hidden and locked away somewhere far. It wasn’t until 1861 that it resurfaced through the teachings of the yogi Babaji whose disciple was LahiriMahasaya. Later on, it was passed from one disciple to another until it reached ParamhansaYogananda.

He was the one that spread the influence of the kriya yoga techniques further and spread it around the world. All secrets of this meditation are clearly laid out in his book Autobiography of a Yogi, which can be read by everyone. Also, he presented them during his travels to the West for public teaching.

Common Kriya Yoga Techniques

The main goal of kriya yoga is to connect people with the divine, creating unison between them. It helps you dive deeper into yourself and find the source of joy in your spine and blood.

However, to achieve this level of mediation you should know a few kriya yoga techniques. These won’t only relax you but they’ll show you how everything is done properly, as well. For starters, you should learn how to activate all the positive energy lying somewhere inside your body. The breathing techniques can assist you with this. As soon as you learn to breathe in and out slowly, you’ll be able to sense the energy waking up.

Aside from this, there are the postures. In case you do them correctly, your channels in the spine will spread, leaving space for the energy to rule over.

Connected to this, the mental kriya techniques allow you to mentally move the force down and up the spine with real determination to succeed in unraveling the true happiness. In fact, these meditation techniques are also known to encourage natural growth of a person quickly and with positive results.
