The concept of prosperity has been likened to that of a flower opening and emitting its fragrance. When a person becomes prosperous, they emit a fragrance of security, grace, depth, character, and integrity. Like a candle that emits light, a prosperous person emits prosperity.
Our challenge is in realizing everything we need is within rather than outside us. We try to impress others but when we impress ourselves with our own inner wisdom, security and authenticity, we attract what is needed. Joy replaces suffering and pain.
Posture and Mudra: Sit in Easy Pose (or in a chair) with a straight spine. Raise the right hand to the level of right ear, with the fingers pointing straight up and the elbow out about 10 inches from the ribs (like you are taking an oath). The left hand covers the navel point, with the fingers straight and the palm laid flat over the navel.
Breath and Focus: Slowly allow your breath to become a little longer, deeper and cooler. By allowing this to happen, you will change your metabolism and your nervous system, and you will be totally different. Focus on the breath—take it as deep as you can. Don't move except to breathe long and deep. Take the pranic energy down to the last cell of the lungs.
Time: 8 Minutes (no longer)
Find your Self. Become calm, quiet, and graceful, and relate to your purity.
The Navel Point connected you to your mother in the womb. It is the point of purity. Extending the fingers of the right hand that represent the energies of Jupiter, Saturn, Sun, and Mercury, with the thumb that represents the ego, combines heaven and Earth. This will give you purity if you ask for it.
Focus on the breath, the prana, which feeds the soul. Let the breath of life create space in you where you can feel the connection with your soul.
Position: Continue sitting in Easy Pose.
Mudra: Bring both hands to the level of the Heart Center. Press the thumb tips and fingertips together, keeping the palms apart. Spread the fingers wide apart and point the thumbs toward the sternum.
Eyes: The eyes remain closed.
Breath: Whistle with the Ardas Bhaee mantra (available from Ancient Healing Ways).
Time: 4.5 minutes.
To end: Inhale deeply and suspend the breath for 15 seconds. Meditate on the thought that you are pure; you are perfect; you are the will of God; you are divine. Exhale. Inhale again and suspend the breath for 15 seconds and create that image of yourself. Exhale. Inhale a third time and hold the breath tight for 15 seconds. Imagine you are a very, very pure person. Purity, piety, grace, bliss— include them all. Exhale.
Position: Immediately extend the arms straight out to each side at shoulder level, parallel to the ground, with the right palm facing up and the left palm facing down. Keep the arms and hands straight. You may feel a twist in the right elbow. This is a healing posture to be done very exactly.
Breath: Inhale deeply and suspend the breath for 25 seconds. Close your eyes and feel the heavens and earth joining within you, that right and left are in balance. Keep the hands straight like an arrow. Then exhale with cannon-fire breath through the mouth. Inhale deeply again. Hold tight for 25 seconds. Give yourself a chance to heal yourself totally, in balance with the Universe. In the divine kingdom, be divine. Cannon fire out. Inhale again. Hold tight for 25 seconds. With great kindness to your Self, consider: "It is me and my purity that will give me health, wealth and happiness." Call on it. Exhale and relax.
Time: 2 minutes.
Your energy is unlimited when you call on it, when you invoke it. Find your Self within and see what comes to you. Be who you are with everyone.
