Kundalini Yoga: Meditation for Overcoming Apathy and Depression

If you notice…

  • You feel like you’re fighting against yourself?
  • You’re experiencing a lot of impatience, drama, or internal pressure?
  • You feel cut off from your motivation, inspiration, or intuition?


As our society moves through the coronavirus pandemic, it’s important to recognize that “cold depression” is not always personal; it can be widespread across an entire population during global strife such as what we are experiencing now in this pandemic. That’s because cold depression is a normal response from a person’s body when they are forced to navigate an overwhelming situation that is beyond their mind and body’s capacity. Even without a global transition, most people will experience a cold depression during their lifetime.

What is cold depression?

Cold depression is when stress, tension, pressure, and rapid change becomes greater than a person’s internal capacity to cope or process what they are experiencing. This depression is a form of apathy that numbs your feelings, cutting you off from your inner strength and intuition so much so that you may not “feel” your depression. Hence the “cold” part of the depression. But no matter how cold it is there are other telltale signs such as high levels of reactivity, impatience, feeling numb inside, and even drama. 

In this meditation, we are going to release stress to bring you calm and restore vitality to your life force. In its simplest form, depression is when energy is not moving, so this Kundalini yoga meditation (Meditation for Release of Cold Depression) is going to help release stagnant energy and stimulate the flow of your spirit (prana). We will be using the mantra chant Wahe Guru Wahe Jio.
