This exercise is from Dr. Hew Len, who is an expert of Ho'oponopono* (pronounced Ho-o-po-no-po-no) which is a Hawaiian system for wealth, health, peace and more. This exercise is great to do before you go to bed and/or first thing in the morning. It is great for stress, jet lag, frustration, anger, headaches and anything else you may feel the need to be calm about. The best part about it, it doesn't take long:
Sit comfortably with your feet flat on the floor and your hands in your lap, with your thumb and first finger touching (both hand). By the way, there is no need to count slowly. You can count as fast as you want...just don't hyperventilate!
Inhale to the count of 7 -- Pause to the count of7
Exhale to the count of 7 -- Pause to the count of 7
Do this 7 times
Relax and enjoy, life can be a wonderful experience!!
*To learn more about Hooponopono, the book "Zero Limits" by Joe Vitale tells about how he came to know Dr. Hew Len and his experiences with this spiritual practice.
Also the book "The Easiest Way" by Mabel Katz is also a great book about Hooponopono and how Mabel made it a part of her life.
