Kuji-In is nice - Francois Lépine gives away a complete soothing meditation with nine mudras, Sanskrit phrases to chant through, and areas of
concentration. Kuji In
I use the TM Sidhi techniques too, but abbreviated. It is a closed eye samadhi
meditation, in any posture (no need to force spine, you can flash into dreamlike sequences.) I use 9 sutras instead of 18 because it feels more
soothing. If you want to feel your way into it, learn the first steps. Although the books cost money, there are giveaway pdf's in some places in his
sites about the very basics. This set gives you defence.
Sidhi: think of the word Sun as if you touched it lightly and let your breathing change. Then as lightly as you can, touch the word again in about 15
seconds. Again watch your breath. After the first four (one minute, change to Moon (4x). Then Pole Star 4x. Then come body parts: trachea, navel etc.
If you are seriousl, practice with the first four, feel the good effects and I will write you more details. I taught this ancient yogic technique to
beginner's yoga classes. It does not matter what else happens between the "touches", maybe you see stuff, maybe not, maybe your breathing changes,
don't force anything. Maybe the word comes back several times - ignore it. When you "touch " a sutra, you do not have to enunciate nicely as with
mantras. As if pushing a button gently. It is important to let your body move gently if it wants to. The nice thing about this is that you can
interrupt it without problems.
Falun Gong: I don't believe in their exclusive philosophy but it is good practice and simple for Westerners to learn, everything is free of charge on
youtube on their sites. Five exercises, the last one is sitting meditation. I like these movements, this is especially neat for a computer freak like
myself - you need to do some things with your hands to feel truly relaxed, they give feedback to about one third of the sensory brain. I actually
combine these tow sometimes, after going through the Qigong movements, and the Sitting Buddha, I do the nine sidhi sutras I picked that worked best
for me over the years. The tongue should be rolled backwards touching the soft palate, the eyes are closed.
I am an expert on basic techniques so tell me what you think. Some of these might work just great to soothe you and give you protection. But try
something and give me feedback.
For visualisation, Kabbala and Western Magic are great, also Reiki and Tibetan things. It is fun to do symbols from an established pure tradition
because you can feel protected whether you see things afterwards or not.
