How do I perform the Dog-Paddle Routine general self-sweeping exercise?

Master Stephen Co
Alternative & Complementary Medicine

For this routine, it is better if you stand. Begin with the warm-up and steps 1 and 2 from Exercise 7–F, then proceed.

1. With your hands in the slightly cupped general sweeping position, place your hands just above your head at the crown.

2. Imagine your hands surrounded by a paddle of bright white light. You’ll sweep with the inside (the thumb side) of your hands. Remember to keep your tongue on the roof of your mouth and continue with pranic breathing as you sweep.

3. Dog-paddle down the center line of your body, from your crown down to your feet (Figure 7–12). It’s okay if you bend at the waist or at the knees as you sweep through your legs. As you pass through your feet, throw the dirty energy into the salt water.

4. For your second pass, bring your hands back above your head but slightly to the left, so that they follow a head-to-toe path roughly from the left side of your head down through the left side of your torso and your left leg, down to your feet. Throw the dirty energy into the salt water and spray your hands with alcohol.

5. For the third sweep, begin with your hands roughly over your left shoulder and sweep downward with the dog paddle motion. After you pass the feet, throw the dirty energy into the salt water and spray your hands with alcohol.

6. Repeat this sequence for the right side of your body.

7. Then, using your preferred visualization method, dog-paddle-sweep the back of your energy body in the same way: once down the center line and then twice to the left and twice to the right.

8. After you complete the back, rescan your aura. Note if it seems more balanced now. See also if you feel lighter, more relaxed, or more refreshed.

9. Conclude the exercise by shaking your hands and spraying them with alcohol again. Take a few pranic breaths and relax.
