Achieving Autonomic Muscle Control (Rhythmic Respiration)

Mastering these autogenic training exercises gives the participant the same control
over your body as the yogis and lamas of the East. People with ulcers, gastro-
intestinal disorders, even heart problems and abnormal brain waves, improve these
conditions by mentally taking charge of their bodies in a relaxed way.
Do the "warm-up" of "Exercise -- Achieving Autonomic Muscle Control (Limb
Heaviness)" again. Then say, "My arms and legs are getting limp, heavy and warm,"
1 to 2 times. Then repeat, "My arms and legs are getting heavier and warmer," 1 to 2
times. Then say, "My arms and legs are completely heavy and warm," 1 to 2 times.
Then say, "My heartbeat is calm and steady," 1 to 2 times. Then say, "I feel
completely calm," one time.
Now repeat, "My breathing is supremely calm," 6 to 8 times. Then say, "I feel
completely calm," one time. Do this exercise for 10 minutes 2 or 3 times per day for
2 weeks. It is considered mastered when you can breathe calm and rhythmically
without difficulty, after light activity or nervous stimulation.
