Breath is a fundamental tool for the Kundalini yogi. Through the practice of pranayam techniques, a person can promote his or her physical, emotional, and spiritual health and well-being. Pranayam exercises are great for keeping the mind neutral and the body relaxed. They are also very effective in strengthening the immune system. If you aren’t feeling up for physical exercises, pranayam meditations are great ways to boost the immune system!
Meditation – Breath of Ten to Become Disease Free
This meditation can be found in the manual “Self-Experience.”
Posture: Sit in any meditative posture, i.e., Easy Pose or in a chair with a straight spine with a light neck lock (Jalandhar Bandh).
Focus: The eyes are closed, looking upwards into the third eye point.
Breath: The breath is combined with the movement of the hands. Inhale in 5 strokes through the nose and exhale in 5 strokes through the mouth. Each stroke of breath is one clapping motion. Do not break the rhythm of the movement and breath.
Mantra: There is no mantra with this meditation.
Mudra: Your elbows are bent and your forearms and hands are relaxed and in a clapping position. Your hands move in and out like you are clapping but they do not touch. Stop the inward motion when the hands are about 6 to 8 inches apart. Move slowly and rhythmically. Concentrate on the energy that you can feel between the palms of your hands.
Time: 16 ½ minutes.
End: Inhale deeply, hold your breath for 20 seconds as you press your hands against your face as hard as you can. Exhale. Inhale deeply, hold your breath for 20 seconds as you strongly press your hands against your heart center. Exhale. Inhale deeply, hold your breath for 20 seconds as you press your hands against your navel point. Exhale and relax.
Comments: This is magnetic energy therapy. The energy connection between the hands must not be broken. This exercise triggers the command center to wake up the immune system.
Do this meditation every day for 11 minutes and it will put all the chakras in rhythm.
