Monday Collective Interview, Pt 2

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Question: How does one feel that the breath has gone to the right place?
Answer: As I have said, either by a continual practice you will feel within six weeks; and if you do not feel in six weeks, then certainly in three months time. Certain person who is very ethereal may feel it the first day. That is very different.

Question: How many times, please
Answer: You can do a practice like this for five or ten minutes.

Question: To any rhythm of breathing?
Answer: Breathing must be to the rhythm of four.

Question: Murshid, always feeling that one is inhaling, one must imagine from the starting point?
Answer: Yes.

Question: Thinking of the part is enough to send the breath there?
Answer: Yes, that is the wonderful part of it, that breath works under the command of the will.

Question: To look at the feet when one wishes to send breath there?
Answer: No, at will, just to feel, to try and feel.

Question: Breathe entirely through the nostrils?
Answer: Entirely through the nostrils. Because that is the natural breath. Through the mouth is a practice which brings about a certain result. But mouth is not meant for breath; only nostrils.

Question: When you inhale, do you direct the breath to a particular spot?
Answer: No. When you inhale there is a will. You will. And when you exhale there is action. Because it is quite contrary to the other practices.

Question: Murshid, do you not think of drawing it in and then pointing it or directing it?
Answer: Yes, only the thing is that when you have to send it to a certain part of the body, the breath must touch there while inhaling. But when you send it out the breath must touch while exhaling.

Question: That is permitted always to practice, even if it is not given as exercise?
Answer: Yes, it is either for self-healing, or for the practice of healing others, (or for the practice of operating one’s breath).

Question: A hundred times?
Answer: No, one need not count. Four or five minutes, or ten minutes the most.

Question: In the morning?
Answer: Yes, that is the best. Ya Shafi = Pour Thy Divine healing power upon me. Ya Kafi = I radiate healing power through me.

Question: How does one feel that the breath has gone to the right place?
Answer: As I have said, either by a continual practice you will feel within six weeks; and if you do not feel in six weeks, then certainly in three months time. Certain person who is very ethereal may feel it the first day. That is very different.

Question: What are the five directions of the second practice?
Answer: The first direction is center, next is left, third is right, next is above, and next is below. It may be done in one foot distance; that means: from the center one foot above, or one foot on each side, and one foot below.

Question: Murshid, do you mean that you choose a spot?
Answer: Yes.

Question: Should you try to see something particular?
Answer: No. Only imagine first that you are projecting the current of breath, which is light itself, and force, and power, on a certain point. By doing this you will get the use of breath power, the use of magnetism which is there.

Question: How many times, please.
Answer: You can do a practice like this for five or ten minutes.

Question: To any rhythm of breathing?
Answer: Breathing must be to the rhythm of four.

Question: Murshid, always feeling that one is inhaling, one must imagine from the starting point?
Answer: Yes.

Question: If one wishes to send the breath to right or left, must one turn the head?
Answer: A little turning of the head.

Question: Thinking of that part is enough to send the breath there?
Answer: Yes, that is the wonderful part of it, that breath works under the command of the will.

Question: To look at the feet when one wishes to send breath there?

Question: A hundred times?
Answer: No, one need not count. Four or five minutes, or ten minutes the most.

Question: Five minutes for each practice?
Answer: Yes, five minutes for each of these three. But I should think it is too much to do all these three practices together. If a person had much leisure, in that case I should advise them to do one practice in the morning, the other in the evening, the other at night. To divide them like this. But if one had no leisure, in that case one practice for three months, then another practice for three months, and then another for three months.

Question: In the morning?
Answer: Yes, that is the best.

Question: If you give practices to invalids, only prescribe the Wazifa lying down, or sitting, or standing?
Answer: Mostly to invalids I give Fikar lying down; not the Wazifa. But if they are not in the condition to sit, in that case it may be done lying down. Because Wazifa has a positive effect, and it is more effective when a person is sitting.

Question: When you give a phrase and do not give any number of times, nor “before of after meal”, does it mean once a day?
Answer: That only means that I have forgotten. It means 5 times before and after meals.
