breath

“When the breath of life becomes short, you become short tempered. When the breath of life becomes long and deep, you understand who you are."

The slogan of Age of Aquarius. “I know, let me help take you there.”

MEDITATE ON NEUTRAL

To access your neutral mind, you have to pay attention with your sensory awareness inside your head. The directives are LOOK, LISTEN AND FEEL inside your head. When you have located your inner space, you can create a deeper and more stable space by meditating on the following:

(1) Identify the quality that you experience that makes the inner space more real and available to you and focus on your experience of that quality. Qualities that pull your attention inward include - open, space, stable, still, quiet, dark, deep, etc.
(2) Absorb and integrate that quality or qualities into your body by feeling it in your body.The goal of all meditation is to access the neutral mind and to cultivate and establish our inner space.

While we are meditating, whether it be silent, mantra, Pranayama or even active meditation, our focus should be inside our head with awareness of our inner space.

Dhrib Dhristi Meditation (page 95 in Relax and Renew) *(9) is excellent for connecting with our inner space.
Lock the tips of the front teeth together. Focus the eyes on the tip of the nose with the tongue touching the upper palate. From the third eye silently project the mantraSA TA NA MA.Beam out the mantra as you stay aware of how this sound creates internal harmony. Coordinate the silent repetition of the mantra with the breath -- one or two repetitions of SA TA NA MA with each inhale and each exhale. Whatever your choice, have the same number of repetitions on both the inhale and the exhale.

This mantra was first taught by Yogi Bhajan on the eve of a full moon, when the effects are the greatest, as the subconscious mind is then fully open to its vibratory action. Practice this meditation for at least 15 minutes per sitting. 31 minutes will take you even deeper.

Honestly practice it for the longer times, and the following things will happen: Your eyes will have the power to penetrate deeply. You will learn to talk inspiringly, and your words will always represent the truth of given situation. You will be able to project your personality or your bodily sensations anywhere. Lastly, you will know the consequences of any sequence that you may start.
