How To Excite Your Portable Energy System (Part 3)

Sep 17, 2015

Give yourself every advantage you can by maximizing your health.


You’re almost there.

You almost have the knowledge you need to command your portable energy system.

But before we continue, ask yourself…

Does my portable energy system actually need “commanding”?

I mean…weren’t you doing “pretty okay” without this knowledge of Prana, Nadis, and Chakras?

What can this knowledge actually do for you?

This knowledge brings you to Balance. When Balance is realized, an ancient and true energy awakens. This energy serves us in connecting to our ultimate purpose.

If you were a football coach, your purpose would be to win games for your organization. Wouldn’t it be much, much easier with an all-star team? Life and efforts would flow as one and open space for enjoyment.

Whatever your unique life purpose is, it’s going to be much easier and much more enjoyable with an all-star team. To recruit that team, you need to attract them. You need to show each individual player that you are the best this game can offer and that their time spent with you will not be in vain.

To do this, you must begin to work closely with your portable energy system. The “meat and potatoes” are Prana, Nadis, and Chakras.

After reading PART 1 and PART 2 of this series, you should have a clear understanding of what these stabilizers are and what role they play in your life.

In this article, we’re going to take it one step further and describe how the three main Nadis (Ida, Pingala, and Sushmuna) are different from one another, why, and what you can do bring them to equilibrium.

We will finish with a simple step-by-step instructional on how to perform this healing, strengthening, and manifesting meditation from the comfort of your home.



In our previous articles, we introduced three of the some 72,000 Nadis in your portable energy system.

The three main ones are the Ida, Pingala, and Sushmuna. Each of these have a distinct role and function in your body, but also work together to harmonize and create space for enlightenment.

The Ida begins at your Root Chakra, zigzags up your center, reaches your Third Eye Chakra, and terminates at your left nostril.

The Prana that flows through Ida is Apana-Vayu. “Apana” for the flavor of Prana and “Vayu” describing it as “wind”. Apana-Vayu is of a feminine sort of energy. It is described as a negative, or eliminating force. It’s role is to expel all that from your being that is no longer of use to you.

Ida’s compliment is Pingala. Pingala mirrors Ida as it begins at the Root Chakra, zigzags up your center, reaches your Third Eye Chakra, and terminates at your right nostril.

The Prana that flows through Pingala is Prana-Vayu. It’s life force governs the reception of all things.

When both Ida and Pingala are balanced, charged, and flowing, it allows space for energy to be created in the Root Charka. When this process is initiated, the energy rises up the Sushmuna and transmutes lower (less desirable) energy forms into higher ones, creating momentum and charging a higher consciousness.

With elevated consciousness, the mind is able to project clearly. This is your most powerful tool in Manifestation. Your mind recognizes the sequence of events from step one and is able to choose and act in accordance with your personal desires and ultimate life purpose.


Balancing Ida and Pingala

While there are many techniques and practices to help you balance your portable energy system, a meditation of Prana, Nadis, and Chakras will to give you great insight into the processes that need your attention most.

All of us are in a different state of health and development. It is your responsibility to invest the time to see what your unique situation is in most need of. For now, we will work with the meditation described below. What is unveiled and what to do with this knowledge is for you to decide.

Note: If you feel that you are in a phase where you might need a triangulated support to help graduate to your next step of well-being, consider COACHING (serious applicants only).

Begin this meditation by shaping your environment. Make your space as quiet and as comfortable as possible. You are encouraged to sit in an upright position. Consider the use of props such as pillows and blankets to support your comfort. You do not want strain to be a distraction while working with this meditation.

The best time to perform this meditation is in the morning before your to-do list begins and/or at night before sleep.

After you have prepared your space, acclimate to your environment by settling with a few, smooth, calming breaths. Close your eyes.

After you have reached equilibrium with your space, cover your right nostril with your right index finger. Continue your cycle of smooth, calming breaths. Feel the air traveling through all corners of your body. Notice how this breathing is somewhat different than your normal breathing. Be careful not to make this a mental activity. Just notice the all the big and subtle shifts and movements, then discard them until post-meditation.

As you are performing this, you are engaging the Ida. This technique will help you to flush everything from your being that is no longer of use to you. Allow these entities to leave you. If you observe any resistance to “letting go”, acknowledge that resistance, discard it, and allow your practice to evolve.

You are encouraged to spend between one to five minutes working with Ida.

When you are ready to move on, cover your left nostril with your left index finger. Exactly like before, continue with your smooth and steady breathing. Give your awareness to feeling. Feel all that you can without naming it.

As you are performing this, you are engaging the Pingala. This technique will help you to receive…and all of a sudden it’s Xmas. Give yourself permission to receive to your fullest extent. Receive health, receive love, receive inspiration, receive solution. Be careful not to expect or assume while you are working in this meditation. Allow the meditation to be whatever it needs to be “this time”. “Next time” allow for it to be different than before, unique.


Next Time

This is a great stopping point for this meditation. You are encouraged to work with these steps until you are comfortable and ready to progress to the next step- activating the energy of the Sushmuna.

In our next article, we will give you a step-by-step instructional on how to perform this and finish your journey of working with your portable energy system.



If you notice a difference in flow of breathing while working with the steps of this meditation listed above, that’s ok.

If either the right or left nostril feels clearer or more open than the other, this is nothing to worry about- it’s normal. Ida and Pingala will take turns being dominant in your breathing cycles. If you notice that every time you perform this meditation either your Ida or Pingala is dominant, leave a message below to that we may discuss why and how to move forward.

    dear sir/madam; im very interested in this description of ida, pingala and susmuna nadis in yr articcle above; and i wd like to learn yr meditation techniques to balance and energize them; however i have one problem which is specific to me and may not apply to others;
    thing is that i find it difficult to breathe for any length of time thru either left or right nostrils; because they are most of the time struffy and blocked; as if this is not bad enough i also have a deviated nasal septum in my left nostril that makes breathing thru nostrils more difficult and requires much forcing ; with the result i mostly breathe thru my mouth;
    any suggestions how to deal with these issues of blocked, stuffy nostrils , and deviated nasal septum; i mean can you recommend anything to clear u my nostrils so i cd do this meditation, i mean anything other than surgery which i have already considered and am not inclined to do?

      Kanishk, Ken, Nathan, thank you for sharing. I’m sorry to hear about your challenges with breathing. I’m sure this has been difficult for you. Good news though! You may still perform this exercise as you are now. Because you are having difficulty with the breathing, you will shift your attention to the subtle energy here. Instead of breath, you feel energy. This is totally fine for you. In fact, we only speak of breathing like this because it is easier to focus on than the energy I speak of. You will receive the same benefits as everyone else, only…you will have to exercise greater focus when tuning into these energies. Does this feel helpful to you? If not, please ask any additional questions and I will respond.
