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
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.
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.
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.
