The Seven Ancient Heart Imagery Exercises – Exercise Two (“Tibetan Abs”) 

(excerpt from the book "Heart Imagery: A Path To Enlightenment" by Daniel Mitel)

  • Place the tip of your tongue on the roof of your mouth; roll your tongue backwards as much as possible; if you can touch the uvula or even go deeper inside the nasal cavity, then you can literally help your energy move up into the brain and work with your pituitary and pineal gland.

  • Lie full length on a yoga mat with hands down near the hips.

  • Inhale using the reversed breathing and raise the legs straight up without bending the knees; at the same time, raise your head.

  • You might find it helpful to gently contract your hands when you bring your legs and head up and relax them when you exhale and lower your head and feet.

  • Hold this position for three-seconds and exhale lowering the feet to the floor and the head at the same time.

  • Do three, six, nine or twelve sets.

  • When you finish the whole exercise do it one more time mentally with your eyes closed; try to feel the effect of the exercise even if you are not doing it physically.
