This kriya is for handling the pressures of the Information Age. As you do the posture, your breathing will change. Use your breath, the energy of prana, to carry you through. Keep your right arm stretched out parallel to the ground, to catch up with the magnetic field of the earth. Your left hand is at your pituitary to balance the heavens.
The force of your breath will become longer and more powerful. Your body will start feeling pain. This pain will give you endurance; endurance will cause you to rise above your situation; and once you rise above yourself, you’ve got it.
Posture: Sit in easy pose with a straight spine. Put the fingers of the left hand on your forehead touching your third eye point. Extend your right arm out straight forward from your shoulder with the palm facing left. Close your eyes, hold the position, breathe slowly and deeply, meditate silently. Recharge your body with energy.
Time: 18 Minutes
To finish: Inhale, hold your breath 5-10 seconds, and exhale. Repeat this sequence one more time. Then inhale, hold your breath for 10-15 seconds and, with your fingers interlocked over your head stretch your spine upward. Exhale and relax.
