1. Lie comfortably on your back, either in bed or on your living room couch.
2. Hold with your right hand a piece of Red Tiger Eye against your heart.
3. Close your eyes and focus your intentions on letting the crystal's energies infuse your whole being with youthful energy.
4. Inhale fresh air through your nostrils.
5. Exhale as much as you can through your mouth until no air is left in your lungs. As you exhale the air focus your intention on releasing all forms of negativity.
6. Close your mouth and automatically inhale the air through your nostrils. Do not let your conscious mind interfere with your automatic inhaling. Your breathing will feel like a vacuum cleaner sucking in the air. As the air comes rushing into your lungs focus your intention on absorbing Divine love and light.
7. Repeat this breathing exercise until you feel energized.
