Pre Ritual Instructions
Do a ritual bath before performing this ritual. (Recipe Below) Do this meditation just before the ritual.
Find a quite peaceful place & Insulate: Fix up a clean meditation place with a seat neither too low nor high. Insulate the seat with a clean cloth over a mat 1) Develop a Form of Energy: You may want to use a special meditation blanket or cloth to sit on. After you finish your meditation immediately roll it up and keep it in a clean place. Let this towel be recharged with your meditative vibes each time adding more energy each time you meditate. Position 2) Sit on the prepared space/towel comfortably, and calm the mind and senses by concentrating on the concept of "yoga meditation for self-purification". 3) Find your center of gravity by positioning the body, head and neck erect without looking about; gaze toward the tip of your nose ( A crooked spine may hinder the process when the consciousness rises up.). 4) Touch your two ears. Mentally draw a line between then. Now touch the center of your forehead and the back of your head. Mentally draw another line. Where the two lines cross is the place of the Pituitary and Pineal Glands. These are the Psychic Glands, the seat of consciousness, the brow chakra, (right in the middle of your head). 5) Now let your awareness be right in the middle of your head. 6) Close your eyes half way and keep your awareness in the center of the head. Keep your mental gaze at the tip of your nose to help you keep the focus in the center of the head. 7) Erase all fear from your heart. This means do not be afraid of God. Just be serene. Think that you are a child of God and you will experience fearlessness. 8) Focus on your breath and begin to steady and calm your breath. Breath and focus on the divine one. Let your attachments go. Each time a distraction comes into consciousness, refocus your inward gaze to the tip of your nose, again steady your breath and focus your mind on the divine one. 9) Start with a small amount of time and add on each day. It is better to have 1 minute of liberation then many with distractions and lack of liberation.
Reflect 10) After you meditate, take a few minutes to reflect about your surrender to the divine one and how you can carry over your peace state while in the conscious. Bath Sachet
