Meditation to Deep Connection to Spirit

Sit comfortably with your upper arms at your sides. Bend your elbows, raising your hands toward your chest and bringing them in toward your mid-line with the left hand on the bottom and the right hand on the top. The angle of the forearm is at a 45 degree angle with the body and the hands cross each other at a 90 degree angle. The right hand rests on the left, then lower the left thumb over the right palm and the right thumb crosses over the left thumb (both thumbs are aligned with their corresponding fingers).

The breath cycle is very specific. Inhale and exhale through the nose, then inhale and exhale through the mouth. Next, inhale through the nose and exhale through the mouth. Then inhale through the mouth and exhale through the nose. Continue with this pattern sequentially. Nose, Nose. Mouth, Mouth. Nose, Mouth. Mouth, Nose. Eyes are focused at the tip of the nose.

Continue with this pattern for seven minutes. It is possible that the hands and face may tingle, you may feel a surge of energy. No matter the sensation, keep on going. To finish the meditation, inhale deeply and hold the breath as long as you can then cannon breath (an explosive exhale through the mouth). Repeat the finishing breath two more times and then relax.
