A Meditation for Healing Addiction

Let’s face it: in some form or another we all suffer from addiction. These days we often turn to drugs, alcohol, food, sex, work, the Internet and many other addictions in an effort to avoid feeling our discomfort. If we’re not addicted to the drugs, cigarettes or the typical vices, then we are subconsciously addicted to fear, rejection, victim-hood etc. In some way we’re all addicted to negative patterns.

When we’re addicted to something, there is an imbalance in the pineal gland — also called the the third eye. The pineal gland is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain. When the pineal gland is imbalanced, bad habits turn into addictions. The imbalance in the pineal gland affects the pituitary gland, which regulates the rest of the glandular system. When the pituitary gland is affected, the entire body and mind go out of balance.

Use this meditation for any type of addiction from alcoholism to addiction to fear based thoughts:

Breakdown as taught by Yogi Bhajan

Sit in an Easy Pose, with a light jalandhar bandh. Straighten the spine, and make sure the first six lower vertebrae are locked forward.

Eyes: Keep the eyes closed and focus at the Brow Point.


Mudra: Make fists of both hands and extend the thumbs straight. Place the thumbs on the temples and find the niche where the thumbs just fit. This is the lower anterior portion of the frontal bone above the temporal-sphenoidal suture. Lock the back molars together and keep the lips closed. Keeping the teeth pressed together throughout, alternately squeeze the molars tightly and then release the pressure. A muscle will move in rhythm under the thumbs. Feel it massage the thumbs and apply a firm pressure with the hands. Silently vibrate the five primal sounds—the Panj Shabd—SAA-TAA-NAA-MAA, at the brow.

Time: Continue for 5-7 minutes. With practice the time can be increased to 20 minutes and ultimately to 31 minutes.

Good post on getting away from addiction problem through meditation, though it has been said from ages that meditation has the power to heal all pain & stigma beneath. That is why it can be tried for sometime to get rid of negativity from life, rest of problem can be taken care by the rehab centers, specialized to help people to wanted get rid of addiction habit.
