This meditation looks very simple, but is said to tune your biorhythm and magnetic field. It works to trigger the command center and ask your immune system to wake up.
Breath of Ten is similar to breath of fire, working towards a disease-free body, enhanced intuition, and an absolutely meditative mind. It requires practice. When originally taught, it was said that if this exercise is done for 11 minutes, it puts the entire chakra system in rhythm.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine.
Mudra & Movement: Your elbows are bent and your forearms and hands are relaxed in a clapping position at the level of the solar plexus. Your hands move in and out as if you are clapping but they do not touch. Stop the inward motion when the hands are about six to eight inches apart. Move slowly and rhythmically.
Breath: The breath is timed with the movement of the hands. Each stroke of the breath is one complete clapping motion (hands move in, hands move out). Inhale in five strokes through the nose as you complete five complete clapping motions. Then exhale in five strokes through the mouth as you complete the next five clapping motions. Continue and do not break the rhythm of the movement and the breath.
Focus: Concentrate on the energy you feel between the palms of your hands.
Continue for 11 minutes. You can gradually increase the time to 16 ½ minutes. To end, inhale and hold the breath for 20 seconds as you press your hands against your face as hard as you can. Exhale. Inhale again, and hold the breath 20 seconds as you press your hands strongly against your heart center. Exhale. Inhale one last time and hold the breath 20 seconds as you press your hands against your navel point. Exhale and relax.
Imagine that you are a great sage, sitting on top of a mountain. Build your courage and sincerity. Experience your positivity, your higher self, like an angel with wings flirting with the Divine. Enjoy yourself.
