Losing a Loved One – Akaal Undying Meditation

How It Works

When we lose someone we love, only time will truly heal the wound. When we lose a parent even more so, because of the energetic ties we have with them are part of us since our own existence. Kundalini Yoga is a very resourceful and prescriptive ancient science, and you may have guessed already, we do have a Meditation for when we lose someone too. 

I lost my grandma a few months ago, I used this is meditation, and I was very glad I knew. I cried a lot while I did it, but it was also very joyful moment for me. In a way, I reconnected with my grandma too, and my tears washed my soul, help me to process what just happen and I believed I helped her soul too. My mother also did and found a lot of comfort doing it.

The days after the passing are important to remind the soul who passed of its true nature, and help them to reconnect to Infinity, to Source. We chant “Akaal” for 11 minutes a day for 17 days. “Akaal” means undying, deathless, immortal. All you need to do, is to seat in a comfortable position, with your spine straight. Tuck the chin slightly, and rest your hands in your lap in gyan mudra (index finger and thumb). Take a few long deep breaths, you can chant the Adi Mantra 3 times (ONG NAMO GURU DEV NAMO) and start chanting Akaal. You will inhale and repeat the word Akaal for 3, 5 times, and inhale and start again.

There are many recordings online, but the one I used when my grandma passed away was this one available at SpiritVoyage. It is a beautiful chant, to Honor the Departed One and help them merge with Infinity.

With Love & Light,

THANK YOU Daniella!!
My mom just passed and am going to start this ASAP. I have been struggling to access that deep meditative space as my body is still so tense. I can sense her but not enough yet. This is just what I need. Am so grateful❤️🙏
