Meditation - For Self-Healing

May 13, 2000 Espanola, NM

Sit straight in a cross-legged position. Raise the right arm parallel to the ground and bend the elbow so that the hand is in front of your heart, palm facing down. Grasp the back of your neck firmly with the left hand. Eyes are closed. Chant from the navel Raa Maa Daa Saa by Guru Nam Singh (slow version).

Heal yourself. Continue for 11 minutes.

To end, inhale deeply, hold the breath and pull your neck forward with your hand, but without bending the neck — fight it, resist it. Balance with the other hand. Make your whole body totally like steel. Powerfully distribute the energy in every organ, in every fiber of your being. Let every molecule get the energy. Exhale. Repeat 2 more times. Relax.

The grip on the neck should be perfect and the right arm parallel to the floor in absolute balance.
