Disease Resistance and Heart Helper

Three repetitions of this kriya is a very effective practice.

1. First Chakra Exercise

This exercise improves your health by invigorating the First Chakra and elimination. It promotes calmness and disease resistance.

Sit in Easy Pose. Interlace the fingers of both hands and press the thumb tips together. Put this hand lock with palms up in the lap. Apply mulbandh, by contracting and pulling up the rectum, lifting up the sex organ, and pulling in the Navel Point.

Chant: "God and me, me and God, are One"

With each cycle of the mantra, pull up the locks a little tighter.

Continue for 3 minutes.

 2. Stomach Pump

The Third Chakra, endurance, and nerve strength are stimulated by this exercise.

Sit in Easy Pose with the hands in Gyan Mudra, resting on the knees. Inhale deeply, exhale slowly and completely without dropping the rib cage. Hold the breath out and pump the stomach in and out. When you cannot pump anymore, take another breath and continue.

Continue for 3 minutes.

3. Heart Helper

This exercise strengthens the heart and increases circulation above the diaphragm.

Sit in Easy Pose. Bring the left arm in back of the torso. Bend at the elbow and stretch the left hand toward the right shoulder. The palm faces away from the body. Inhale deeply, exhale completely. Hold the breath out as long as you can. Apply mulbandh. Then inhale and repeat the cycle.

Continue for 3 – 5 minutes.

4. Meditation

Sit in any comfortable meditation posture. Meditate on the regular energetic flow of the breath. Feel your radiance and light.

Continue for 3 – 11 minutes.
