Manipuraka Shuddhi kriya

All your worries are nothing but words! They are nothing but the sum total of all the languages you know. All your life, you have put your worries into words, spoken about them in some language which you know. Now, you are going to speak in a language which you don’t know!

The 30 minute Manipuraka Shuddhi Kriya or Gibberish Meditation has come to us from ancient Christianity, called earlier as Glossolalia. It is also found in Sufism as Gibberish.

It is a cathartic technique that bypasses mental processes and roots out worries in their most elemental form – which is just negative energy.

It is a powerful technique to cleanse and the manipuraka chakra or navel energy center, which is locked by stress, worry and other deeply engraved negative mental patterns.

You are holding all your worries, negativity and suppressions like a weight in your navel area. Can you see how heavy that area feels? Now you are going to act out all those suppressions – in noises and actions. Remember, no words! When you start using words, your inner chatter begins to come up. During this meditation, don’t allow your inner chatter. Simply get to the core of your deepest suppressions and pluck them out of your system! Just vomit them out in sounds.

This technique is a powerful meditation. It unblocks your unconscious and allows all the negativities stored inside to dissolve. Typical psychoanalytic sessions, when patients talk to their analysts or even throw things around for catharsis, are still conscious processes. Only ten percent of your stored memories will be released. Processes such as hypnosis are through the unconscious and you have no control. This technique is a superconscious process in which you retain awareness while cleansing yourself. This technique should always be practiced on an empty stomach, and at least four hours before sleep.


Step 1 (20 minutes):

Stand apart with your eyes closed. For a minute, concentrate on the manipuraka area. All your worries and suppressed negativity will start rising up into your conscious mind. Just  experience all the tension and stress up inside. Now, imagine yourself in some situation of conflict. Imagine that you are fighting hard with someone. Talk to him – in a language that you don’t know! Just use nonsense sounds. If anyone is listening, it should not make any sense to them. Try to convey your problem, your pain, to the other person. But the other person simply doesn’t agree with you! How do you feel? Angry? Throw out your anger on him!

Anything that happens in you, any word that happens in you, express it as a sound. Do not use words. If you use words, only familiar and recent emotions will surface. Also, words will give rise to only more words without actually working on the emotions beneath them. Shout absolute gibberish; only this will open up your unconscious; only this will bring up the deeply hidden emotions. Recall all the painful incidents of your life.

Visualize the persons involved and feel the emotions involved in those incidents. Bring out all the emotions. Become completely immersed in them. Be aware of nothing else. If tears come, let them! Don’t stop yourself. Scream, wail, cry, throw your limbs about, roll on the ground if you feel like. Create as much  violence as possible! Once you start, you will find that you really won’t be able to stop – so  much will be coming out. You may feel like vomiting, so keep your sick bag ready! Nothing to worry, it is a sign that your system is getting cleansed and balanced, that’s all. Do the technique sincerely – this is your chance to get rid of a lifetime’s suppressions. Enter completely into the meditation.

Step 2 (10 minutes):


Now, simply sit in silence and bring your awareness to your manipuraka chakra. You will feel a tremendous lightness in that area. During this silence, just be a witness to your thoughts. Do not suppress them or chase them. Just let them flow before the deep silence of your being.

Repeat this meditation every day for 21 days minimum, or until you feel as if you have nothing left inside to throw out during the meditation. Right from the very first day onwards, you will find a change, a great peace blossoming in your Being. Enjoy the peace!
