Sit in Easy Pose, hands in any relaxed position, make a strong clucking sound with your tongue striking and releasing against the upper palate. The tongue presses the upper palate and breaks from it with a force. It pulls forcefully on the upper palate at the rate of approximately 2 clucks per second.
NOT MORE THAN 3 minutes.
“The person most slave-like is the one who is trying to prove he is independent— because life is totally interdependent. Nobody can afford the thought to be independent because even our life is dependent on our breath. Dependency starts on that which this body lives. How independent can you be?
Your life depends upon the central ear. There are three bones. One hammer bone strikes the other bone. If that bone stops hammering, you’re done. Your whole world of listening depends on your two ears. Your whole universe depends on your two eyes, whether you see or not. If your two nostrils stop breathing, you are dead. Within us still we say, “I want to be independent. I want to prove it to everybody.” Prove what and to whom? There is a certain reality in us, a certain depth in us, a certain self in us. If we enlarge that then we can overcome.
The idea of life is prosperity. Prosperity does not mean that you have a lot of money and you sit on it. Beauty is not just that you look young and beautiful and charming and sensual and sexual. Beauty is many things: beauty in manners, beauty in behavior, beauty in personality, and beauty in making the deals and dealing with people. Every aspect that is wonderful and beyond wonderful is beautiful. Every human that acts to answer the call of duty in a perfectly direct or indirect manner is the most beautiful human in relationship to that act. That is how life is and that is how we have to live life.
Stimulate your hypothalamus by doing this exercise, but please don’t do it more than three minutes. More than three minutes and it’s no longer an exercise; it becomes an addiction. I’d like to go on record and warn you that you are entitled to do it for three minutes only.” ~ Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan November 6th, 1990
