But before proceeding to do that, you have to prepare yourself for it with a simple eye-pressing exercise. First firmly close your eyes, almost squeezing them shut and exerting a bit of pressure this way. Count to 12. Then relax your eyes by keeping them closed effortlessly for a while. Then start with simha mudra (lion-pose). Keep your spine erect and head straight. Open your mouth as wide as you can and bring your tongue out as much as possible. Then look at the ceiling without moving or raising your head. Maintain this position and count to 12 slowly. Then return to the original position. Rest your eyes for a short while by keeping them closed.
For the first few days repeat these two exercises alternately, three times each. Slowly increase it to four or five times. But don’t increase the number of repetitions beyond that. After completing these exercises do palming for about a minute or 100 counts.
