For the Neo-Mammalian

Then, it needs to be repeated fore several times. One must feel the energy balance between the two sides and feel the corpus collosum (bridge between two hemispheres) open for action. A person needs to give the whole area over to freedom and expansion. Then, some time needs to be taken each day to look hard at something; there is nothing more to be conscious of or perceive. This develops perception. One must try each day to use one's resourcefulness. Magazines and books should be read on subjects one has not studied and in which one possesses no definite inclination.

Exercises needs to be varied by using a silvery light (spiritual). One might notice heat inside the head; this helps in the transformation, but when unwarranted, it brings headaches. In order to feel relieved from headaches, the energy needs to be equalised throughout the head or sent it out the crown chakra, assimilating it with the divine energy above the head and letting the amalgamation shower down around the body.
