This powerful meditation can activate the self-healing process and develop your ability to heal at a distance, through your touch or through your projection. Many psychological disorders or imbalances in the personality can be cured by practising this meditation, and it is particularly helpful in getting rid of phobias. It’s a good idea to practise it in a cool room or at night when the temperature is cooler, as it directly stimulates the kundalini and generates heat in the body.
How to practise:
- Sitting cross-legged in Easy Pose, with a light neck lock (tucking chin back slightly so that the spine is in a straight line from the base up to the top of the head).
- Eyes are closed looking at the back of the eyelids.
- With the elbows close to the ribs, extend your forearms in front of you, with the hands in front of the heart, right over left, palms up. Hands are slightly higher than the elbows, with the arms forming a straight line from the fingertips to the elbows. The thumbs are extended out to the sides of the hands.
- Inhale through the nose, pull in the navel and suspend the breath. Hold the breath in for as long as you comfortably can, whilst mentally vibrating the mantra HAR HAR WHA-HAY GU-ROO. While chanting, visualise your hands surrounded by white light.
- When you need to exhale, exhale through the nostrils and visualise lightning shooting out from your fingertips. Hold the breath out, apply mulbandh (squeeze the muscles around the rectum, sex organs and navel point) and again mentally recite the mantra for as long as you are able.
- Inhale deeply and continue.
Begin with 11 minutes a day, gradually building to 31 minutes.
