Meditation To Prevent Freaking Out

GabbyBernsteinAre you the type of person who needs to break down before you break through? For many years that was the case for me. Before I had Kundalini meditations and a greater connection to my energy, I had some epic freak- outs. Though I had many tools for managing my thoughts, I didn’t have great guidance on how to bust through the really tough times and save myself from a freak-out.

One of the best ways to prevent a freak-out is to change your energy through your breath. (Tweet-worthy!) Every 90 to 120 breaths the dominance changes from one nostril to another. A powerful way to shift your state of mind is to actively change the dominant nostril using this Kundalini meditation. In this exercise you’re guided to notice which nostril is dominant when you’re freaking out and then switch to the other nostril. When you switch the dominance from one nostril to the other you switch the dominance from one hemisphere of the brain to the other, which will enable you to look at things from a different perspective.

If you are irritated, angry, or in a funky state, practice this Kundalini meditation that’s featured in Miracles Now. In just a few minutes you will be a different person.

In this video I breakdown the Kundalini meditation to prevent freaking out. If you’re reading Miracles Now and want further guidance on the meditations, great news: I created a video series where I break down each Kundalini meditation for you so you can do each one with confidence — even if you’re totally new to Kundalini! Check out the video course here.

  • I would love to try this exercise at home. I am kind of yoga follower as well so it will be quite easy for me to make this as a regular routine. In this way I can forget about my heart break for the moment!

    Hi, Neilanderson
    Sorry you are getting through a breakup. It’s never, NEVER easy. One thing I found that helped me was listening to Bryson Katie. She has her own site where you can read and watch videos but I found her accidentally on YouTube.

    Listening to her, and remembering her words I feel calm, I feel in control of my own life and I am reminded that my heart will mend, that I will mend.

    Good luck, my friend and much love and peace
