KY meditation ready for action
What It Will Do for You
Do this at a break in the game or the action. It will
help you combat the encroachment of fatigue and emotion. It will relax and
energize you. It can rejuvenate coordination and spirit and help you avoid
possible painful injury.
How to Do It
To do this, sit straight in a chair or crosslegged on
a flat surface. Place the palms together at the center of the chest with the
fingers pointing up. Focus at the brow point with eyelids lightly closed.
As you inhale, break the breath into 4 equal parts (like sniffs). Hold a few
seconds, then exhale, breaking the breath equally in 4 parts, and hold out
for a few seconds. On each part of the inhale and exhale, pull the navel point
in slightly. One full breath cycle (in and out) takes about 7-8 seconds. Continue
powerfully for 3 - 5 minutes. (1f your mind has a lot of anxiety or confusion,
add to the breath mentally the mantra SAA TAA NAA MAA on both the inhale and
the exhale.) Then inhale deeply and press the palms together with maximum
force for 10 seconds. Relax for 15 - 30 seconds. Then repeat 2 times.
1f you need rest for the
body, immediately lie on your back with eyes closed and let each area relax
for 2 more minutes. Take a few deep breaths, stretch, and you will be ready
