Latihan. Baptism of the Holy Spirit

At one of the next sessions after the previous exercises have been mastered we can proceed to the exercise called "Latihan".

The term "Latihan" was introduced in the beginning of the 20th century by a Sufi named Bapak Mohammad Subukh [39], who used this word to denote one of the ways of communicating with the Holy Spirit. He visited many European countries where he taught this method to Catholic monks and healed with it many diseased people, including those who suffered from cancer.

This technique consists in addressing the Holy Spirit for help and asking Him to concentrate above one's head (one needs to become aware of Him there) and then to "shower" Himself down through one's body as through an empty shell or transparent bottle without a bottom. This will be a true baptism of the Holy Spirit (see [6,14]).

In this way comes healing of the body.

Having surrendered to the Stream coming through it, the body starts dancing and performing other smooth and harmonious movements… This phenomenon is a kind of laya yoga — a series of methods of "dissolving" oneself in Divine Streams as well as in static states of Divine Consciousness.

In fact, this is very simple if we really believe, if we really love Him and are willing to surrender to Him. And the Holy Spirit is always present everywhere as an ocean of Light, including the space above our bodies — watching, loving, teaching and… waiting when we finally pay with love our attention to Him and ask Him for help…

If we have prepared ourselves with all the previous exercises, including "Awakening" — we will succeed in doing this one right away. If not — we may try to imagine ourselves… in paradise, under a heavenly waterfall, immersed in the tender sunlight, aroma of flowers, singing of birds…; a cascade of heavenly water is falling down through the body, purifying the souls and making us worthy of paradise…

In order for the laya dance (the dance of "dissolution") to start, being guided by the Holy Spirit, we should stand on the tip-toes and raise our hands; the clothes should be light and loose — so that we almost do not feel it…

After the dance it would be good to have a rest in a relaxation posture.
