Lesson 371 - Self-Directed Mantra Enhancement Strategy  (Audio)

From: Yogani
Date: November 17, 2009

New Visitors: It is recommended you read from the beginning of the archive, as previous lessons are prerequisite to this one. The first lesson is, "Why This Discussion?"


Q: I started the 1st mantra enhancement (original version) about 4 days ago, before the recent lessons on mantra modifications. The 1st enhancement has been pretty powerful but so far so good. I tend to have the mantra locate in the upper head region, and energy sensations primarily in the top 1/2 of my body. I think the solar enhancement would be helpful in centering all of this. I think I know the answer, but is it too soon to add the solar enhancement after undertaking the 1st mantra enhancement?

A: Yes, one enhancement at a time. It seems you have three choices at this juncture, since you have barely begun the original first mantra enhancement. You can continue what you have just started, and down the road decide on a next enhancement solar centering or mantra.

If there have been stability issues, you can let go of the enhancement you just started and go to the alternate first mantra enhancement for a smoother ride (Lesson 369), or begin the solar centering enhancement instead (Lesson 368). Your choice, according to your experience and preference.

But one thing at a time, and let it bake in for a good long while between enhancements months or years, not days or weeks. Very important.

The guru is in you.
