When the five elements (tattvas) are strong, are in balance, and are located in their proper areas of the body, then you can resist stress, trauma, and illness. You do not get confused in conflicts between the two hemispheres of the brain as they compete for the right to make direct decisions.
This meditation we would like to share with you uses the hand mudra to pressure the 10 radiance points in the fingers that correlate to the zones of the 2 hemispheres. The equal pressure causes a kind of communication and coordination between the 2 hemispheres of the brain. The deep inhale gives endurance and calmness. The exhale through the mouth strengthens the parasympathetic system from a control band of reflexes in the ring of the throat. This calms reactions to stress.
The strokes of the exhale stimulate the pituitary to optimize clarity, intuition, and decision-making capacities. It resolves many inner conflicts, especially when the conflicts, especially when the conflicts are from different levels of functioning: spiritual versus mental versus physical, or survival needs.
Tattva Balance Meditation
Sit in Easy Pose with a straight spine. Raise the arms with the elbows bent until the hands meet at the level of the heart in front of the chest. The forearms make a straight line parallel to the ground. Spread the fingers of both hands. Touch the fingertips and thumb tips of opposite hands together. Create enough pressure to join the first segments (counting from the tip) of each finger. The thumbs are stretched back and point towards the torso. The fingers are bent slightly due to the pressure. The palms are separated. Fix your eyes at the tip of the nose.
Create this breath pattern: Inhale slowly and deeply through the nose. Exhale through rounded lips in eight equal, emphatic strokes. On each exhale, pull the navel point in sharply. Continue for 3 minutes. Then inhale deeply, hold for 10-30 seconds, and exhale. Inhale again, and shake the hands over the head. Relax... Total Time: Start with 3 minutes and build a practice slowly to 11 minutes.
Peace to all, Light to all, Love to all.. Sat Nam. Sat Nam means Truth is my Identity.
