Caliber is a degree of excellence created by one’s integrity and commitment. A high caliber gives the ability to maintain and project your authentic identity and committed self through all environments. This meditation enhances your capacity for caliber, to hold and execute self-authority.
Posture: Sit in Easy Pose, with a light jalandhar bandh. Keep the torso straight at all times. Do not lean forward or backwards.
Mudra: Bring the hands in front of the body at the level of the Heart Center. Close the fingers over the thumbs into fists with the thumb tips at the base of the little fingers, if possible. Press the fists together at the first knuckles from the tips of the fingers, in such a manner that the base of the palms are together and the backs of the palms face away from the center.
Breath: Begin the following steady breathing pattern: Inhale deeply through the nose. Exhale completely through the mouth with pursed lips. Inhale smoothly through the mouth. Exhale through the nose. There is no required mantra except the subtle sense of the breath itself.
Eyes: Fix the eyes on the tip of the nose.
Continue for 3 minutes. To end, inhale and hold the breath as you stretch both hands up over the head. Exhale and continue to stretch for 2 more deep breaths. Relax.
Build the meditation slowly to a steady 11 minutes. Then build to a maximum of 22 minutes.
