Meditation to Fight Brain Fatigue and Live Your Excellence

2 exercises,14 minutes, from I am a Woman - Creative, Sacred, Invincible

This exercise balances the diaphragm and fights brain fatigue. It renews the blood supply to the brain and moves the serum in the spine. It also benefits the liver, navel, spleen and lymphatic system.

Part 1

Sit in Easy Pose with the elbows bent and upper arms near the rib cage.

The forearms point straight out in front of the body, parallel to the floor.

The right palm faces down and the left palm faces up.

Breathing through the nose, inhale in 8 strokes and exhale in 8 strokes.

On each stroke of the breath, alternately move the hands up and down. One hand moves up as the other hand moves down. The movement of the hands is slight, approximately 6-8 inches, as if you are bouncing a ball.

Breathe powerfully.

Continue for 3 minutes.

Then change the hand position so that the left palm faces downward and the right palm faces upward.

Continue for 3 minutes.

Then change the hand position again so that the right palm faces down and the left palm faces up.

Continue for 3 minutes.

To end, hold the position and move into the next part.

 

Part 2: Holding Still 

Hold the same mudra, and begin long, slow, deep breathing.

Close the eyes and focus at the center of the chin.

Keep the body perfectly still so it can heal itself. Keep the mind quiet, stilling all thoughts.

Continue for 5 minutes 30 seconds.

To end, inhale deeply, suspend the breath, make the hands into fists and press them strongly against the chest for 15 seconds. Exhale.

Inhale deeply, hold the breath, and press the fists against the Navel Point for 15 seconds. Exhale.

Inhale deeply, hold the breath, bend the elbows bringing the fists near the shoulders and press the arms firmly against the rib cage for 15 seconds.

Exhale and relax.
