This pranayama practice for facing your ego taps into the solar plexus chakra. The center of our ego, will, and fire. We use the ego eradicator from kundalini yoga to channel Durga's energy for putting the negative sides of our ego in its place. It's the battle of facing an inner demon by submitting to Durga and the physical process in order to transform the ego.
Durga is the queen of protection. After all she is a warrior goddess. In this audio file we will meditate using visualization as we explore energetic boundaries, what we need protection from, what it would be like to feel/see ourselves protected as well as one action we could take to care for ourselves in this way. If visualization doesn’t come easily today try to sense or feel your way through the journey instead. At one point in the audio I suggest a mantra for Durga if you feel called to invoke her energy further. That mantra is om dum (doom pronunciation) durgaye namaha.
