Vajra Breath

From The SpiritWiki

Vajra Breath is a Connection Technique specifically designed to awaken kundalini energies. To practice, inhale a deep breath and visualize white lightning coming into you with that breath. Hold the breath and the bright white light in your mind for a few moments. Finally, exhale and visualize a bright red light glowing and growing and expanding out from your body.[1] For best effect, do this visualization repeatedly throughout your day, when sitting, at a traffic light, while walking, etc.
