UNITED WITH ALL THE ILLUMINATED SOULS WHO FORM THE EMBODIMENT OF THE MASTER,
THE SPIRIT OF GUIDANCE.


THE HEALING BREATH

I would like to tell you something about the healing breath.

Some mureeds, those who desire to be healed by doing practices, may be taught to make a Fikar of “Ya Shafi, Ya Kafi” — inhaling and exhaling, repeating it mentally, and to direct their breath to the parts of the body which needs to be healed.

But this is not only a teaching for healing, but this is a general teaching, that every adept who seriously studies and practices Sufi exercises, must be able to consciously direct his breath to the painful part. It will require at least six weeks, or sometimes three months, to be able to feel breath touching the painful part in the body. And the best way of doing this exercise is to consciously direct first to the feet, to the bottoms of the feet. Because the bottoms of the feet are sensitive. And when one is able to direct the breath to both bottoms of the feet, then next thing would be to direct the breath to both palms of the hand. And when that is done, then to direct the breath towards the forehead. And when that is done, then to practice to direct to the solar plexus.

When these four practices are mastered, then the adept becomes a controller of breath. Then he can operate the breath in any part of the body which needs healing. This practice must be done lying down, and first thing in the morning. And many who seek true health and cure will be helped by it. And it is not only that, but it is a tuning of the body. It brings about desirable condition of health.

Now there is another outer practice. You may give to the adept an outer practice of operating with breath. First to project the breath, imagining that the breath is a current of light, in front of one sitting, (two meters away from the wall, at the same time facing the wall). Then to send this current to the right side and to the left side, and upwards and downwards. By practicing the projecting of the breath as current of light in five directions, one will be able to develop, not only the healing power, but at the same time the inspiring power, the power of helping more and more. And in this way one will be able to communicate mentally with others by the means of breath.

And the third practice is the practice of enfoldment. And this can be done by projecting the current of breath on the left side of the breast, on the right side, and in the center, which means: on the solar plexus. By projecting the current on the left side it will bring about the development of personality. By projecting the current on the right side it will give power of action. And by projecting the breath in the center, means to the solar plexus, it will help the soul to unfold latent inspiration, and power will develop. But these three practices may be given only to the most trusted mureeds.

With the first practice which I have said, the word of Fikar must be Ya Shafi, Ya Kafi.

With the second practice any word of power, such as Ya Jalil, Ya Kadir, may be used.

And with the third practice such word as Ya Wahabo, which is the word of progress, and Ya Fazil (accent on Fa (note)) which is the word of illumination, that may be used.

The first practice may be done lying down. The second practice and the third practice may be done sitting.

Ya Shafi = Pour Thy Divine healing power upon me
Ya Kafi = I radiate healing power through me
Ya Jalil = O Thou, Glorious, Illustrious, Majestic, Sublime (on exhalation)
Ya Kadir = O Thou, Divinely, Powerful (for Man)
Ya Wajid = Manifest God in Existence (for women in inhalation)
Ya Wahabo = O Divine Bestower (on exhalation)

PRACTICE TO DEVELOP THE POWER OF THE BREATH

Time: Between 5 and 10 minutes.
Position: Sit about 2 meters from the wall.

Choose a spot, use the breath rhythm of 4 (out 4 counts, in 4 counts).

By the will project the breath through the nostrils to the spot on the wall, imagining it as a current of LIGHT.

• Direct the breath to the spot
• Direct the breath to the right of the spot
• Direct the breath to the left of the spot
• Direct the breath above the spot
• Direct the breath below the spot

Developing these five currents also develops Healing power, Inspiring power, and the power of helping more and more, also at communicating mentally with others.

UNFOLDMENT PRACTICE

Position: Sitting in meditation posture, or on a chair.
Time: About 10 minutes.

  1. Project the current of the breath to the left side of the breast. (Develops personality)
  2. Project the current of the breath to the right side of the chest. (Gives power of action)
  3. Project the current to the center (i.e. solar plexus) (This helps the Soul unfold its latent inspiration and power)

You may use the wazifa “Ya Nur”. Some mureeds, those who desire to be healed by doing practices, may be taught to make a Fikar of “Ya Shafi, Ya Kafi” – inhaling and exhaling, repeating it mentally, and to direct their breath to the parts of the body which needs to be healed.

But this is not only a teaching for healing, this is a general teaching, that every adept who seriously studies and practices Sufi exercises, must be able to consciously direct his breath to the painful part. It will require at least six weeks, or sometimes three months, to be able to feel breath touching the painful part in the body.

And the best way of doing this exercise is to consciously direct first to the feet, to the bottoms of the feet. Because the bottoms of the feet are sensitive. And when one is able to direct the breath to both bottoms of the feet, then next thing would be to direct the breath to both palms of the hand. And when that is done, then to direct the breath towards the forehead. And when that is done, then to practice to direct to the solar plexus.

When these four practices are mastered, then the adept becomes a controller of breath. Then he can operate the breath in any part of the body which needs healing.

This practice must be done lying down, and first thing in the morning. And many who seek true health and cure will be helped by it. And it is not only that, but it is a tuning of the body. It brings about desirable condition of health.

The word of Fikar must be Ya Shafi (in) – Ya Kafi (out)
