5 Valentine’s Day Kundalini Yoga Suggestions
1. You are my Lover Lord
If you are looking for a lover or a deeper connection with your partner- try singing this song based on an ancient prayer. Sing it all the time, play it in the background while you cook, clean, wash dishes, go for a walk. Embody it’s meaning and you’ll be surprised what happens to loneliness: You are My Lover Lord – listen at this link
You are My Lover Lord
You are my Lover Lord, Yes you are my lover Lord,
You are my Lover Lord and you are my only friend.
You are my father and my mother, and you are my sister and my brother
You are always right beside me, to teach me and to guide me
You never leave me alone, no matter where I may roam
You don’t care if I am right or wrong, for to you Lord I belong.
2. Balance Sexual Energy
Crow Squats (single or partner): The yogis say crow squats are beneficial for balancing sexual energy, correcting problems in the reproductive organs, and keeping the knees well oiled. Stand with your feet slightly apart for balance. Squat down into crow squat, keeping your heels on the floor bringing your buttocks to the floor (if possible). For Partner Crow Squats: Stand facing your partner, holding hands, and squat down together as above. Look into your partners eyes as you move together. Inhale Up, Exhale Down. Repeat 11, 26, 54, or 108 times.
3. Yogi Bhajan Quote – On Being a Wife:
“Understand yourself, understand that your grace is your saving grace, make yourself a Queen of the spirit and righteousness. Queens don’t fight with servants and staff of the Imperial Palace. Be a Queen of consciousness, then make him a King. If you are not a Queen first, you’ll be a doormat.” Yogi Bhajan, Relax and Rejoice, A Marriage Manual, p. 13
4. Yogi Bhajan Quote – On Being a Husband:
“A Man can lose everything on this planet but hope. To build up what you need to build up, there’s no magic which can help you except Sadhana (daily spiritual practice). Your not doing it is not laziness, negativity, self-depression, it is self denial.” Yogi Bhajan, Relax and Rejoice, A Marriage Manual, p. 26
