Yoga Nidra Meditation (also referred to as Yogi sleep) is an ancient meditation technique from India that allows you to relax deeply, while still maintaining your conscious awareness. In Yoga Nidra, you are close to being asleep, but your mind is still present and aware.
In this state of deep relaxation, Yoga nidra meditation can be used to plant intentions that program your unconscious mind. Yoga nidra meditation helps you attract more of the things you want into your life.
How Does Yoga Nidra Work?
Yoga nidra meditation helps you relax deeply into what is known as “hypnagogic state”. It takes you to a brainwave state where you are very suggestible to new ideas, beliefs, and behaviour patterns. You experience alpha, theta, and delta brainwave patterns (Dwivedi & Singh, 2016).
During this brainwave state you can literally command your subconscious mind to reprogram you to manifest your intentions (Hoye & Reddy, 2016).
By combining a Yoga nidra meditation with my unique brainwave entrainment technology, you can help the journey progress even deeper for faster results.
What Are Intentions?
An intention can be something material such as getting your dream car or vacation, or it can be something more physiological such as healing from chronic illness or wanting to reach your perfect weight.
It can also be more spiritually aligned by focusing on something you want to attract that could help the greater good.
The more focused and specific your intention is, the greater the power of your intention becomes. The greater the power of your intention, the more likely it is to happen – and fast!
Setting Intentions for Yoga Nidra Meditations
The way you phrase your intentions is really important. Yoga Nidra is a very powerful process, and it is possible to manifest things we don’t really want, or things which are not for our greater good.
To ensure you have the highest chance of success with manifesting your intentions during the practice of Yoga Nidra, remember:
State your intention with conviction.
If you want to manifest your intentions successfully, you must be absolutely certain that what you are manifesting has already happened in the future.
Your intention must be in the present tense.
You only manifest that which you believe has already happened. If you want to manifest more money, you could say “I have $____ in my bank account”
Use first person statements.
“I am _____”
“I have ______”
Your unconscious mind cannot distinguish between positive and negative.
So if you want to reach your ideal weight, you should say something like “I am at my perfect weight and body shape” rather than “I don’t want to be fat” otherwise your unconscious mind will act on the word fat, ignoring the don’t and manifest that result instead.
Once You Have Your Intention
Positive intentions do not magically manifest results, what they do instead is open your subconscious mind to new channels of information and opportunity, so you notice opportunities and take good action on them in order for changes to happen to your life.
Now you have your intention, repetition is essential, so the more times you repeat an affirmation the better. It should become a daily practice.
