Morning Sadhana - Cleaning the Subconscious
Sadhana means daily spiritual practice. It is a discipline of the mind and body to serve the soul. It is a time each day to notice the patterns that lead away from higher consciousness and to transcend those patterns.
The 108 yogic scriptures called the Kundalini Upanishads, call for at least two-and-a-half hours of sadhana before the rising of the sun. The duration of two-and-a-half hours is determined by the law of karma: everything you give, you receive back tenfold. So if you dedicate one-tenth of each day to your higher consciousness, your whole day is covered by the returning energy.
To exercise before sunrise is important because the angle of the sun to the earth is very good for meditation. Also there is much prana in these hours, and the body rhythms are more set to support physical cleansing than during the rest of the day. It is also the time we go into ‘dreaming’ when sleeping. By waking up before this dream state, we can consciously clear the subconscious, rather than it playing out in dreams, filled with emotion and story.
At this time of the day few people are awake and busy, so the clutter and bustle of daily activities does not interfere with your practice.
