Mudra: Extend the Jupiter (index) and Saturn (middle) fingers, keeping the other fingers held down with the thumbs. Relax the elbows at the sides of the body and raise the forearms perpendicular to the ground. The hands are at shoulder level with the palms facing forward and fingers pointing up. Open and close the Jupiter and Saturn fingers in a scissor-like motion. Create a steady rhythm.
Eye Focus: Closed.
Breath: Not specified for the first 20 minutes. Powerfully inhale and exhale through the “O” mouth moving the navel with the breath for 2 ½ more minutes.
Mental Focus: Concentrate on the movement of the 2 fingers, cutting self-negating subconscious thoughts.
Total Time: 22 ½ minutes.
To End: Inhale deeply, suspend the breath for 15 seconds, pull the navel towards the spine,
Cannon Fire exhale. Repeat 2 more times. Comments: When the fingers come together, the subconscious thoughts you have against yourself will fly away.
