To become like angels we need the inner strength to be secure, to give to all, to be consumed in the service of life and destiny. This set, done properly, is said to give you the health and inner energy to live from your angelic nature.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose (comfortable cross-legged sitting position). The right arm is stretched forward with the palm facing down. The left elbow is bent with the left upper arm near the ribs. The palm faces forward and the fingers point straight up.
Movement: Pat the air, going up about thirty degrees and back down to be parallel with the ground. Move from the shoulder and pat at a rate of 30 times per minute. Create a steady rhythm.
Breath: Inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth. Breathe slowly, heavily, and deeply.
Eyes: Close your eyes.
It is said that humans who have regularly done this exercise have become angels in their own right. This exercise may cause some pain as it re-aligns the patterns of the body. You are hurting yourself so that ill health does not hurt you.
Continue for 6 minutes. Then change hands and continue for 3 minutes.
Relax and roll your shoulders. Loosen up.
Continue for 2 minutes.
This exercise is said to rid the body of chronic illnesses which have developed over the years.
Posture: Bend both elbows keeping the upper arms close to the ribs. The wrists are bent and the palms face upward. The hands point away from the body at a diagonal.
Breath: Inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth as fast and powerfully as you can. Hold your body in perfect balance. There will be tremendous pressure on the chest.
Eyes: The eyes focus on the tip of the nose.
Continue for 5 1/2 minutes.
Posture and Movement: Rhythmically hit the ground in front of you with your hands. (When practiced in a class, everyone should hit the floor with one rhythm.)
Mantra: Chant Har, using only the tip of the tongue. Use the power of the navel point to chant, and time the chant in rhythm with the clapping of the ground.
Har is one of the names of God in His creative aspect. The ‘a’ is short and sounds like the ‘u’ in ‘but’ and the ‘r’ is slightly rolled, similar to Spanish.
Continue for 6 1/2 minutes. To end: inhale, hold the breath 15-20 seconds, tense all your muscles, and press the hands against the ground with the entire weight of the body. Exhale explosively through the mouth. Repeat two more times.
