Balancing Brain Energies

This 21 minutes long meditation technique works on balancing our active and passive energies of our brain. Whenever we are involved in any active, analytical or logical activity, our right brain is stimulated. This is the active or ‘solar’ aspect of the brain. Whenever we are in a mood for listening to music or poetry, it is our left brain which is at work. This is the passive or ‘lunar’ aspect. Most of us overuse one part of the brain and don’t use the other part enough. As a result, our energies are in a state of imbalance. When we balance these two energies, our functioning becomes more centered and harmonious.


Sit silently with your eyes closed. Press your fingertips upon your closed eyelids for few minutes until you start seeing a light inside your closed eyes. Don’t hurt the eyes too much. Just witness whatever you are seeing inside. Seeing a bright light inside is a good sign. This light is known as bindu. It means that the life-force is intensely present in your body. Now relax the eyes for 3 minutes. Then repeat the process. This technique will balance the energies in both sides of your brain.
