Managed Energy Meditation

Originally taught by Yogi Bhajan on February 26, 1985

When faithfully practiced, this kriya produces a vitality in the etheric body so that it becomes extremely strong and begins to totally regulate the physical glands. This balances the glandular system so that the emotions become constant and the mind becomes divine in its actual potential.

The glands will secrete to the total rhythm of the individual psyche rather than from fragmented segments of the self. This new unity is the ecstasy.

Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine. After the first 5 minutes, let the head, neck and shoulders completely relax down. Use no strength in any part of the body above the diaphragm, but keep the hands in place.

Mudra: Raise the right hand up to the base of the throat. With the thumb and pads of the fingers, press the points just below the collarbone protrusions (where the collarbone and the sternum meet; this is a reflex point for the thymus gland). Insert the fingers of the left hand into the bend of the left knee, palm against the thigh.

Breath: Make the mouth into an "O" and breathe two times per second as if blowing bubbles. Use the cheeks. After 5 minutes, begin to breathe normally.

Eyes: Look forward. Then gradually close the eyes while visualizing the bubbles.

Time: 9 minutes total. After five minutes, start closing the eyes. After two more minutes let the head and shoulders drop. After two more minutes conclude the meditation.

To End: Inhale deeply, exhale, and hold the breath out for 30 seconds. Relax.
