This is a very simple and ancient meditation to resolve conflict in us. If you do it, you'll enjoy it. Just
see what changes you go through. Just supervise yourself. It is a psychotherapy.
The moment the body knows the breath is out, it starts adjusting at the highest rate of efficiency.
The theory is that when the breath is out and the prana is not there, the pranic body starts
penetrating through the other bodies to create the combination. The computer must figure out
how to allow you and your cells, which need x amount of oxygen, to survive.
If you have a most grave situation to handle, 5 minutes of this will take care of it.
How to Do It:
Sit with the legs crossed. Press the hands on the breasts, palms in, fingers pointing toward each
other. The hands are relaxed with the fingers extended and joined. This is a comfortable position
with very little pressure and no tension in the arms and hands.
Close the eyes 9/10 of the way. Deeply inhale for 5 seconds. Completely exhale for 5 seconds, and
hold the breath out for 15 seconds.
Begin with 11 minutes and slowly build to 31 minutes. To end, inhale and stretch the arms up and shake them vigorously for 15 seconds, exhale and continue shaking for 15 seconds, repeat the inhale and exhale and shaking 2 more times. Relax for a few minutes.
