KRI Meditation of the Month – November of 2020
Experiencing the Original You
Originally taught on April 7, 1993
1. Sit in easy pose. Interlace your fingers and turn the mudra so that the palms face outward. Extend your arms straight out in front of you with no bend in the elbows. This is called reverse elbow lock. Stay steady and do not raise or lower your arms once you are in position. The eyes are focused at the tip of the nose. Try to breathe only one breath per minute. Inhale for 20 seconds, hold for 20 seconds and exhale for 20 seconds. Continue this long, slow, deep breath for 3 Minutes. If you have problems with your stomach and digestion, your elbows may hurt or be uncomfortable.
2. Remain in position with the eyes focused at the tip on the nose. Continuously inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth with the force of cannon fire. 3 Minutes. The extent to which you can heal yourself now will be in direct proportion to the strength of your breath.
3. Remain in position. Inhale, hold your breath and pump your navel. When you can no longer hold your breath, exhale. Immediately inhale and again pump your navel. Continue at your own breath rhythm, pumping your navel as vigorously as you can. 3 Minutes.
To finish: Inhale, hold the breath 15 Seconds, stretch your arms out as far as possi-ble, putting pressure on your joined fingers. Exhale through the mouth like cannon fire. Repeat this sequence two more times. If this set is practiced for 120 days you’ll gain great vitality, personal excellence, and a new concept of what you are. It works on the celestial concept of the third layer of the human mind.
- To fully circulate the energy you have created, extend your Jupiter finger straight up and lock down the other three fingers with your thumb. Circle your hands in outward circles as fast as possible. This movement has to be so vigorous that the entire spine moves. 2 1/2 Minutes. Inhale and relax.
Awakening the Law of Intelligence in the Original Self: If you are in a demanding situation where you have to come up with a solution, control your breath by inhaling 20 seconds, holding 20 seconds, and exhaling 20 seconds. The answer you need will come to you. I want to give you that depth and that strength which is yours... the original you.
