Today, February 19th, we have the strongest Super Moon of the year landing in the Earth sign of Virgo. Super Moons occur when the moon is closest to the Earth and on Tuesday, the moon will be as close as it gets all of 2019. Not only is it a majestic spectacle to behold, but as the moon governs our subconscious mind, the thoughts that we have abandoned to darkness will be brought to greatest light to help us grow and evolve as human beings. It takes courage to face our fears, doubts and insecurities, but when we overcome them, we feel like we are reborn.
Shining at 0 degrees Virgo, this moon arrives with unlimited potential and possibilities. Now is the time to look at your fears and obstacles—no matter how big or small—and challenge them by saying: “Anything is possible.” It is during these moments of tension that can we tap into our potential to reveal our strengths, purpose, and passions.
Make no mistake that this Super Moon will be an intense experience. We will have no choice but to go through the emotions, feel all the feels, and heal on a very deep level. By doing so, we can actually move forward towards the future we want for ourselves. But if we avoid our feelings and suppress them into the depths of our hearts, then we will be forced to learn the same lessons again and again and again.
As a Kundalini Yoga Teacher and practitioner, I rely heavily on mantra—coded sounds that shift how you feel, clear away doubts and fears, and also help you manifest what you desire most. Similar to music, mantras affect your state of mind by connecting to primal parts of the brain that trigger and emotional responses and action. In preparation for this powerful Full Moon, I’ve collected specific mantras to help you open and cleanse your subconscious mind. Listen to them at any time during the day, or play them at night as you drift off to sleep.
Kundalini Mantras for the Super Moon
This mantra is one of the most powerful mantras to clear blocks and obstacles. If there is a block and it’s not moving, use this mantra like a lever to help you move up and out of the dirt and back onto the road again. My favorite version is Ad Such by Simrit Kaur.
CHATTRA CHAKKRA VARTEE
“Chattr Chakkr Vartee is the mantra for the heart center, it gives direct energy to it. When you are sinking, if you know this mantra and can sing it, you can totally recuperate yourself.” — Yogi Bhajan. The most beautiful and otherworldly version of this mantra is Chattra Chakkra Varti by White Sun.
This mantra evokes the Goddess of The Ambrosial Waters. Water has the powers to wipe everything clean and that’s exactly what this mantra does. It cleans you on a cellular and subconscious level of all your doubts, fears, and worries. The most healing version of this mantra is Narayan Shabd by Ajeet Kaur.
