Becoming Crystal Clear

Clarify your understanding of yourself and who you are. Let your actions and commitments express your truth. Get clear about who you are so you can be that person to the world. This kriya helps us develop understanding of our self, our mind, our body, our soul. The yogis call it the science of crystallization.

If you choose to cut the times of these exercises down, they should be cut down proportionally (except for the Bouncing Ball exercise which is 30 seconds). For example, cut all the times in half, or quarters, etc.

1. Arm Swings

Bring the arms straight out to the sides, parallel to the ground, with the palms facing forward. Begin alternately bringing the palms in as if to beat the chest, but do not touch the chest. Breath of Fire will automatically develop from the motion, if you do it correctly and powerfully. Imagine that you are pulling pranic energy in with each motion of the hands.

Time: 6 minutes 30 seconds.


 2. Clap Hands

Bring the hands in forcefully as if to clap them in front of the face, but do not touch the hands together.

Combine force and control in your movement.

Time: 2 minutes 30 seconds.

3. Bouncing Ball

Move both hands up and down at the same time as if bouncing a ball with each hand, and imagine that you are bouncing energy against the ground.

Do Breath of Fire.

Time: 30 seconds.

4. Navel Press

Lie down flat and put both hands against the Navel Point. Press hard. Raise the heels up 6 inches and hold.

Think you are divine or feel sexy, but keep the heels six inches off the ground.

Time: 6 minutes 30 seconds.

5. Sleep 

Lie down and go to sleep. Imagine that your body is filled with light. Focus at your Navel Point.

Listen to the recording of Dhan Dhan Ram Das Gur called Naad: The Blessing by Sangeet Kaur.

Time: 8 minutes.

Begin to sing along using the power of the navel.

Time: 7 minutes.
