When: Every night, last thing before going to sleep. First thing in the morning.
Duration: 4-5 minutes.
Step 1: Imagine a Halo
“Sit on your bed and imagine an aura around your body, just six inches away from your body, the same shape as the body...surrounding you, protecting you. It will become a shield. Still feeling this, go to sleep, fall into sleep imagining that aura like a blanket around you, which protects you from any tension entering from outside, from any thought entering you from outside. No outside vibration can enter you. You fall asleep but that imagination will enter the unconscious and becomes a tremendous force and energy.
Step 2: In the Morning...
“In the morning, the moment you feel that now sleep is gone, don’t open your eyes: just feel your aura all over the body protecting you. Do it for four to five minutes and then get up.
Step 3: All the Time...
“Taking your bath, having tea, go on remembering it. Any other time during the day when you remember — sitting in a car or train or in the office doing nothing — just relax into it again.
“This [exhaustion] happens to many people because we don’t know how to protect ourselves. Others are not only there but broadcasting their being continuously in subtle vibrations. Somebody passes by and throws something [energy] at you: if you are receptive and you don’t have a protective aura...and meditation makes one very receptive.
“So if you are alone, it is good; when you are surrounded by meditative people, very good. But when you are in the world, the marketplace and people are not meditative but very tense and anxious, you start getting that energy. After mediation one has to create a protective aura. Sometimes it happens automatically, sometimes it doesn’t. If it is not happening automatically to you, you have to work for it. It will be coming within three months. Anytime between three weeks and three months, you will start feeling very powerful.”
