Yoga nidra as a Process of Releasing

The mind is not directed here and there during yoga nidra. There is no guided imagery, no explanation and no effort whatsoever to be aware of any object, or part of body or being. Rather you go into state of deep releasing and letting-go. You invite your attention to go deep into the stillness and silence, in the space between the breasts. As you move deep into the state of yoga nidra, you want to release and release. There are thoughts in the dreaming mind but we go past that in yoga nidra..Your attention has also left the dreaming state of mind, and gone further inward. Here, you completely let go of any words, thoughts, images, impressions or pictures. It is this emptying which takes you to yoga nidra.
