Devavani meditation lasts for one hour. There are four stages of 15 minutes each. Keep your eyes closed throughout. Devavani is the “divine voice” which moves and speaks through the meditator, who becomes an empty vessel, a channel. This meditation is a Latihan of the tongue. It relaxes the conscious mind so deeply that, when done last thing at night, it is sure to be followed by a profound sleep.
First Stage: 15 minutes
Sit quietly, while the music is playing.
Second Stage: 15 minutes
Start making nonsense sounds, for example “la la la” and continue until unfamiliar word-like sounds arise. These sounds need to come from the unfamiliar part of the brain used as a child, before words were learned. Allow a gentle conversational intonation; do not cry or shout, laugh or scream.
Third Stage: 15 minutes
Stand up and continue to speak, allowing your body to move softly in harmony with the sounds. If your body is relaxed the subtle energies will create a Latihan outside your control.
Fourth Stage: 15 minutes
Lie down. Be silent and still.
