This meditation can be performed by sitting or standing.
Begin by staring at the chakra image below for 20 seconds. Close your eyes. Bring the memorized image into focus, and steady your breath. Place your hands in a namaste gesture in front of your navel center. Begin rapidly rubbing your hands together, until you form a sense of heat. When you achieve the sensation, start to part your hands gently, feeling the energy between the two palms. Now, imagine the chakra image between your hands, as the source of your energy, your inner fire (agni). Move your hands up, down and around like you are holding a crystal ball. At this moment, begin reciting, vocally or silently to yourself, the mantra "RAM". Each time you say the mantra, imagine your inner fire growing brighter and stronger. When you feel ready to release the meditation, invite the energy back into your solar plexus with your hands, visualizing it as a bright yellow light gently surrounding and supporting all parts of you.
