It is believed that when an individual can control their energy, they can also control their thoughts and direct that energy into the spiritual eye, which helps them achieve Self-realization.
The full circuit of the energization exercises includes 38 sets of exercises that take about 15-20 minutes to complete. Practicing these energization exercises increases the individual's energy, their awareness of its flow in the body, and their sense of self and well-being. It releases bodily tension and helps the practitioner prepare for meditation, enabling them to sit still longer and more comfortably.
Detoxifying and oxygenating the blood through double breathing is practiced throughout the energization exercises. Double breath is performed by inhaling strongly through the nose with a short, sharp inhalation followed directly by a long, strong inhalation that completely fills the lungs. Then, without pause or retention, exhale through the nose and mouth with a short exhalation, followed by a longer one. When this is performed properly, it should make the sound “huh, huhhhhhh" with the breath.
