- EMOTIONS & BREATHING -


Emotions

"So once you have given yourself a balance, then, the best thing is to pay attention to your emotions, to Manas Shakti. Watch them. You can enlighten your emotions, by thinking of Your Mother. Right? Just enlighten them.

This solves all the problems. Whatever are the problems in the Mana. So once you are connected in your meditation you will see these emotions are rising within you and if you try to put these emotions on your Mother, they, those emotions, will start dissolving and they'll become sort of, expanded. Expanse you see. You will extend them in such a way that you will feel you are in control of them and by controlling those emotions, your emotions are expanded, enlightened and powerful.

 


Breathing

Now what you do is to watch your breathing. See now, try to reduce your breathing; reduce it, in the sense that you have to breath out, wait for a while, then breathe in. For a long time. Then you breathe out. So during one minute your breathing will be less than normal. Alright? 

Try that, keep the attention on the emotions, you see? So that the connection is established.

Better? See, the Kundalini rises.
Now, when you are breathing, you find that there is a space in-between which you just leave vacant.
Breathe in.Keep it there.
Now breathe out and keep breathing out.
Now breathe in.
Now start breathing out and keep breathing out.
Now breathe in.
Now start breathing in such a way, that you really reduce your breathing.
Your attention should be on your heart or it could be your emotion, it's better to keep the breathe inside a while.
Hold it.
Bring it out.
Hold out.
Then keep it outside for a while.
Then again.
Then you'll find that for a while you will not breathe.
Good. See, you are settled now.
The Laya takes place between your Prana and your Mana. Both the Shaktis become one.

Now raise your Kundalini up - up on top and tie It up. Again, raise your Kundalini and tie it up thrice.

Now at the Sahasrara you should say the mantra of Sahasrara - thrice.

Om Twameva Sakshat Shri Kalki Sakshat
Shri Sahasrara Swamini Moksha Pradayini Mataji Shri Nirmala Devi Namoh Namah.

Now it's opened now, if you see, now you can open again your Sahasrara like this. And see that you are stationed there ... Once this has been done then you go into meditation...

Reduce your breathing, will be better.  You reduce your breathing as if to stop it, but no exertion about it."


H.H. Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
