Set to Open the Heart and to Remove Negativity

Here is a short set that works on opening the heart center. It is taken from Relax and Renew page 102 and was taught by Yogi Bhajan in 1973.

During exercise one, keep the breath in the solar plexus and feel the energy and sensations there.

Exercise two actually takes stress out of the head and gives you a glowing complexion. You are so happy when it is over!

Exercise three opens up the back and heart and connects the energy of the arms and hands with the heart. This and the following one are good exercises for symptoms of carpal tunnel and numbing of the arms and hands. These conditions are partly caused by blocked energy between the hands, arms and heart.

Exercise four is fabulous to do many times a day. You can open your heart from the back. Feel your shoulder blades move down and together. A lot of stress, which is blocked heart-center energy, will be released. Enjoy.

(1) Clasp fingers in Venus Lock, but curl Mercury (little) and Sun (ring) fingers into the palms instead of crossing them. Then hook left Saturn (middle) finger over right Sun (ring) finger and pull, hard. Focus at the 3rd Eye, continuously pulling hard on the finger lock for 1-3 minutes. Removes anger and enthrones the neutral mind.

(2) Fit base of palms under the cheek bones and push as hard as you can for 1-3 minutes. It doesn't have to hurt, but if it does, you have the right spot. Makes you feel happy!

(3) Grasp left wrist with the right hand and pull the left arm as far to the right as possible, and then some more!, for 1-3 minutes. Removes tension across shoulder blades.

(4) Make wrist lock behind the back with the hands touching the spine and try to bring elbows together. Pull! Arch the spine forward and apply chin lock for 1-3 minutes. Raises energy up the spine and elevates you!

COMMENTS: This short set leaves you feeling great! Perfect for depression, anger, fatigue or stress.
