First Journey: The Crystallized Self
The focus of the first journey is to recognize, experience and crystallize the Self. The blocks are encountered in the first four stages: upset, boredom, irritation and frustration. The first ascent starts when we have a sense of our Self, separate from all the commotions, emotions and sensory impulses; we begin to focus and recognize a still point, a nucleus within, which is the Self. It is this crystallized sense of Self that is needed in order for consciousness to work.
Stage 1 – Upset
Meditation to Conquer Upset
Stage 2 – Boredom
Meditation: See Your Horizon
Stage 3 – Irritation
Meditation: Eyeglass Traatik
Stage 4 – Frustration
Meditation: Self-Hypnosis to Dissolve Frustration
Stage 5 – Focus
Meditation: For Focus and an Alert Mind
Stage 6 – Absorption
Meditation: For Absorption in the Crystal Being
Stage 7 – Experience and Crystallize the Self
Meditation : To Experience and Crystallize the Self
Stage One—Upset. Although not exactly what we imagine when we think of meditation, upset is a part of our human experience and learning to manage it is key. Here’s the illustration and commentary Yogi Bhajan gave for Stage One—Upset:
“Negative thoughts come at you like arrows. Your strong positive arcline in the aura absorbs the energy of the thought and moves it spiraling up through the central channel of the spine to create more awareness above. The Jappa of the mantra cuts each thought so its form changes from negative to positive and it can be passed on to the central channel. In this way you are still, happy and master the upset that comes from the defensive thoughts.” –Yogi Bhajan
