Meditation - For Self-Reliance

Mudra: Sit straight in a cross-legged position. Extend the arms forward at shoulder level parallel to the floor, with elbows slightly bent. Palms are face down, with fingers spread, tough and tight like nails — these are your five antennae. Move the arms rhythmically straight back and forward about 5 inches. Reach from the shoulders, affect your chest and spine.

Eyes: Eyes are closed.

Mantra: Chant the Prosperity Mantra Har Har Har Har Gobinday by Niranjan Kaur. Continue for 11 minutes.

To end, inhale deep, straighten and tighten your fingers as much as you can so your hands automatically shake from the force of it. Cannon Fire Exhale. Repeat 2 more times. Relax.

Regular practice of this exercise will totally change the psychic flow of your body. You will be different. Your body will receive energy from the universal energy, which is called Prakirti. And as a Purusha and Purkha you will just blossom. Body is given to you as a gift for you to emit and remit the light of your soul. And when it emits and remits the soul, the universe brings to you what you need. Otherwise you are a hustler — “I want this. I’m working for this.”

You have only one thing — your breath. You will only know who you are if you know the length and strength of your breath. When your mind does not stop and you go crazy, just hold the breath. In one second you forget why you are doing it. Because when you breathe in and hold it in, the mind comes into the balance center. When you breathe out and hold it out, your mind becomes intuitive. Life is very simple. Pave the way for your own knowledge.
