A Gentle Exercise before Sleep

Interested in letting go of what’s holding you back in your life? 

Singing HU on a regular basis increases your ability for meeting the waves of life. Members of Eckankar often sing a personal secret word (given during a spiritual initiation). Both attune Soul, the eternal spiritual being that we are, to a new level of consciousness.  

The Mahanta is a spiritual guide who teaches Soul Travel, a natural ability which allows travel inwardly, often to Temples of Golden Wisdom in other realms of existence.  

The exercise below offers simple techniques for inner journeys that bring you more love, confidence, and wisdom in daily life.

 

By Harold Klemp

Try doing this spiritual exercise each evening before you go to sleep. Close your eyes, and sing HU or your secret word for five minutes.

Then just before you go to sleep, say to the Mahanta, “Please take me to the place where I can learn whatever is important for my spiritual unfoldment. Take me to a Temple of Golden Wisdom.”

Or say, “Let me see what it’s like to Soul Travel; you have my permission.”

If you can establish the golden heart, which is actually the viewpoint of Soul, you’ll find it easier to have inner experiences and let go of the fear. If you have fear in Soul Travel, you have fear in other things, and it’s holding you back in your life.
