I love this blog so much that I updated it in September 2018!
My all-time favorite Kundalini meditation is called Ego Eradicator. This meditation busts through all littleness and opens you up to your inner awesomeness and faithful intuition.
You’ve probably seen photos on my social media of rooms full of people with their hands up in the air in a V shape. That’s Ego Eradicator! I am such a passionate believer in the power of this meditation.
The power of Ego Eradicator
There are so many benefits to Ego Eradicator. It helps you release stress and bust through the blocks of whatever is holding you back. Maybe you’re feeling a little spiritually disconnected. You may be stuck in a fear-based story that is holding you back. Or maybe there’s a relationship issue you don’t know how to fix, or a financial fear you can’t let go of. Maybe life is just getting you down.
Whatever is blocking you, this meditation will bust right through it. As the Kundalini master Yogi Bhajan said, “There is a way through every block.”
There is another amazing benefit of Ego Eradicator. As a result of busting through blocks, this meditation is so tremendous for charging the electromagnetic field around our being. We all want to release all the negative so that we can call in more of what we want. This allows us to live with flow. Ego Eradicator immediately centers you into your power to magnetize greatness!
If you have some blocks you really want to bust through, I suggest practicing Ego Eradicator for the next 40 days. But even if you just do it occasionally, you will experience major benefits. Watch the video below to practice with me.
Guided Ego Eradicator meditation
Check out this clip from my Miracles in L.A. lecture where I lead the meditation. You’ll be able to feel the intimate and high-vibe energy of the group from the comfort of your own home.
Here’s how it breaks down…
Hands: Press your fingertips tightly against the pads of your hands. We call these the kitty-cat pads, right below where your fingers meet your hands. The tension is very important because the energy needs to move through. Your arms are at 60 degrees and your thumbs are anchored into the sky. Keep your arms locked and tight, with no flappy elbows. If your arms get tired, activate the muscles in your back, around your shoulder blades. Keep your spine straight throughout the meditation.
Breath: When practicing Ego Eradicator we use Breath of Fire (unless you’re pregnant or on your period, in which case you just take deep, slow breaths). The way Breath of Fire works is it’s a rapid breath in and out your nose, kind of like a deep sniffing. As you inhale and exhale your stomach will be going in and out, in and out. If at any point you start feeling dizzy, stop Breath of Fire and breathe slowly and deeply. If you are pregnant or on your period, again I want to emphasize that you should not do Breath of Fire. Breathe slowly and deeply instead.
Music: If you are watching the above video, there is music playing. You can simply close your eyes and maintain the pose and breathing for the duration of the practice. (Note: I didn’t want my voice to interrupt your practice, so you’ll notice the music keeps going at a point where I pause to just encourage the group to keep going.)
If you want to practice this meditation later on your own, I suggest using the first song on my Ego Eradicator playlist on Spotify. After your meditation, listen to the second song while you sit with your eyes closed.
Close the meditation: At the end of your meditation, open your hands with your fingers spread wide. Take a deep breath and as you hold it gently, allow your thumbs to float towards each other. When your thumbs touch, exhale and release your arms. When you’re done with this meditation I suggest you sit for another few minutes with your eyes closed. This not only lets you transition from meditating back into daily life, but there’s another cool benefit. Following Ego Eradicator you’re in that space where you’re centered and calm, and you feel your energy vibrating. In my book Add More ~ing to Your Life, I call this the ~ing zone. This is when you can feel highly inspired and get creative ideas.
Are you breathing correctly?
Before you try Breath of Fire, make sure you’re breathing properly in general. Here’s how you can tell. Put your hand on your stomach and just breathe. On the inhale make sure your stomach is extending. On the exhale your diaphragm should come in and up. Inhale it comes out, exhale in and up.
If you’re realizing you’ve been breathing the opposite way, you aren’t alone! I was a spiritual teacher for nearly seven years before I learned how to breathe right. If you’re breathing incorrectly, you might feel very uncomfortable on a regular basis. You may feel kind of stuck, and like things don’t work out naturally. This is because our breath is our most vital source. It’s the most important thing we have. So check in with yourself from time to time, making sure that on the inhale your stomach extends and on the exhale it contracts.
Paying attention to your breath is a simple way to get un-stuck and back into alignment quickly!
