Get into a comfortable position and slow your breathing. Notice your inhalation and exhalation. Becoming aware of the area above the pelvis, focus your breathing there.On the inhale, imagine your breath gathering in the abdomen. Whilst you exhale, imagine blowing on that spot, like it were a candle, not to extinguish the flame but to make it glow brighter. Gently keep blowing on it and make the flame grow and feel its warmth.
This exercise is great for developing the mood.
