How the Brain Changes When You Meditate By Jennifer Wolkin By charting new pathways in the brain, mindfulness can change the banter inside our heads from chaotic to calm.

Rise and Shine Yoga Routines
While you are asleep you are under the care of three energies: magnetic, electric and
pranic (life force). These energies should be adjusted to the wake stage before you get
1. After first receiving a signal to get up after enjoying a deep sleep, lay on your
back, greet your Creator and go through the Morning Blessing, blessing each
divine function of your being.
2. Keeping the eyes closed, stretch your hands above your head to channel the
magnetic energy. Then cup your hands and draw them down toward your eyes.
Open your eyes to gaze into your cupped hands. With light coming through the
cracks between your fingers, slowly raise the hands up 12 to 20 inches as you
read the lines in your palms. This process will protect the optic nerve from any
undue pressure from morning’s first light. Keeping your focus, slowly bring the
hands back over the eyes. Repeat this process until the light no longer bothers
3. Gently rub the eyes outwardly to the corners of your brows, stroking your face
downwards from the cheeks past the chin. Men stroke down to the tip their
4. Women can relieve tension that naturally accumulates in the ovaries by briskly
pounding the ovaries with the palms of their hands for a minute or two.
5. Women can nurture themselves to be very healthy and energetic by massaging
their breasts. This is the only point where the nerve point of the life nerve, of the
ida and pingala, passes very near. Men achieve this effect by kicking the
buttocks in shoulder stand.
6. Roll your hands and feet at the wrists and ankles for three and a half minutes.
Stretch your toes, one by one, back and forth for one and half minutes.
7. Do a “feel good” Cat Stretch on each side of your body 4 to 5 times on each side.
This diagonal stretch breaks the magnetic field of sleep and insures that you will
never have hip or lower back problems.
8. Do Stretch Pose—the feet and head raised off the bed 6 inches, arms along your
side stretching toward the toes, gazing at your toes to complete the circuit of
energy. Repeat 3 times and then rise up into this position for 30 to 60 seconds
with Breath of Fire. Inhale deeply and hold, tightening every muscle in your body.
Stretch pose stimulates the navel before you put yourself into gear for the day,
like warming up your car first.
9. Bring your knees to your chest and hold them with Long Deep Breathing or
Breath of Fire. This pose releases pressure from excess air (apana) in the
intestinal tract.
10. Now, laying flat on your back, arms along side, do 108 body bounces: Supported
by the heels and shoulders lift and drop the buttocks at a fast pace inhaling up,
exhaling down with a powerful breath, like Breath of Fire. It gives great vitality.
11. Sit up in bed with your hands on your knees and grind your abdomen and also
your solar plexus around in circles 3-4 times in each direction to balance air and
food. This motion also bores your energy into the earth’s electromagnetic field,
creating receptivity to the earth element, which serves to ground you.
12. Straighten your arms up at sixty-degree angles from the bed with the fingertips
on the pads of the hands and thumbs pointing up. Do Breath of Fire for 1 minute.
Inhale deeply and bring your thumb tips together over your head following a
natural arc of energy. When the thumb tips connect with ease it indicates that
your electro magnetic field has been reset.
13. Do Sat Kriya 5 to 8 times: The arms are stretched up straight over your head
hugging your ears, palms together. Powerfully pull in on the navel as you chant
“Sat” (rhymes with “cut”) and release as you chant “Nam” (rhymes with “Tom”).
This stimulates the internal organs and chakras to start functioning. Just as you
would never run a cold car—warm yourself up!

1. Massage your feet a bit and then walk barefoot to the washroom, allowing the
positive charge of electricity to go out of the body, out the feet. Open and close
the water tap several times; the excess electrical charge is taken away from your
body by metal that has a connection with the earth.
2. Sit on the toilet in Crow Pose, with the feet on the seat. This is the natural
position for elimination. Clear your urine, stopping the flow up to six times. Do not
let it go in one stream. This will help you avoid incontinence in your later years.
The way Yogiji said it, “Your body asks for mercy, kindness and care. Drink water
during the day. Urinate properly. You haven’t developed those muscles. The
yogis developed locks, like Mul Bhand to give them this control.” To strengthen
your immune system, collect the unpolluted middle third of your urine in a cup
and swallow it before brushing your teeth. The flavor can be made palatable by
drinking a glass of water before going to bed.
3. Brush your teeth with powdered Potassium Alum and salt in a 3:1 ratio. Then
clean the tongue to gag 3 times so mucous does not go into the stomach. This is
a must. Gag every morning after brushing the teeth.
4. Splash cold water directly into your eyes. Do this often, throughout the day.
Along with gagging it will help prevent cataracts.
5. Deeply comb your scalp forwards and back, forwards and backwards 108 times,
with the last motion being forwards (the hair is brushed the opposite direction at
the end of the day before being braided.).
6. If one has long hair, it can be tied up on top of the head in a smooth knot over the
solar center or soft spot. On men this is near the brow, on women the spot is
located near the back of the top of the head. The “rishi knot” acts as an antenna
for sun energy, channeling it down the spine to help awaken the Kundalini.
7. Drink a glass of cold water or cold, plain Yogi Tea. It is very healthy. It goes
through the system and takes all the dirty ions. You will feel clean inside.
8. Next, take a cold shower—Ishnaan hydrotherapy!
