Meditation for Creating Self-Love
From the manual: Self-Knowledge compiled by Harijot Kaur.
1. Sit in easy pose with a straight spine and hold your right palm six to nine inches above the top center of your head. The right palm faces down, blessing you. This self-blessing corrects the aura. The left elbow is bent with the upper arm near the rib cage. The forearm and hand point upward. The left palm faces forward and blesses the world. The eyes are closed and focus at the lunar center in the middle of the chin. Breathe long, slow and deep with a feeling of self-affection. Try to breathe only one breath per minute – Inhale 20 Seconds – Hold 20 Seconds – Exhale 20 Seconds. 11 Minutes. Inhale deeply and move slowly and directly into position for exercise two.
Love doesn’t rule you. What rules you is fear, phenomenal fear. Through this kriya, love can be invoked and fear can be reduced.
2. Extend your arms straight out in front, parallel to the ground, palms facing down. Stretch out to your maximum. The eyes are focused at the lunar center in the center of the chin and the breath is long, slow and deep. 3 Minutes. Inhale deeply and move slowly and directly into position for exercise three.
If you cannot bless yourself then nobody can bless you.
3. Stretch your arms straight up with the palms facing forward. There is no bend in the elbows. The eyes are focused at the lunar center and the breath continues to be long, slow and deep. 3 Minutes. To finish: Inhale, hold your breath for 10 seconds while you stretch your arms upward (try to stretch so much that your buttocks are lifted) and tighten all the muscles of your body. Exhale. Repeat this sequence two more times. Exercise one is called Reverse Adi Shakti Kriya. Here you are mentally and hypnotically blessing yourself. This self-blessing affects and corrects the magnetic field. Doing this exercise will hurt if you are an angry person. Self-help is very difficult for those who are angry. After doing this exercise for 5 minutes your muscles will also start hurting if your diet is improper. The taste in your mouth will change if you are breathing correctly. Exercise two will benefit everything between the neck and navel. It will give strength to the heart and will open up the heart center.
