THE SOUND OF SOUL
The easiest technique of all is to chant the sacred sound and ancient mantra HU. This word has the power to uplift you spiritually for inner peace, healing, and insight.Learn More about HU
When I practice HU, I feel like I am floating out of my body. It feels so natural. I feel gentle waves of divine love. I’ve tried various forms of meditation but find the Spiritual Exercises of ECK are more effective for me. The more I do them, the more I realize I am Soul and I’m alive to be of assistance to the Life Force in whatever way I can.
FINDING THE SOURCE OF ALL TRUTH
In a spiritual exercise I asked the Mahanta how to be truly happy. The answer I got was very deep and true, and left it for me to be creative.
This spiritual exercise was very beneficial for me.Kayal, age 12
A GUIDE FOR YOUR
A number of the spiritual exercises show how you can work with an inner guide. The exercises can be used with a guide you are familiar with—whether it is the Mᴀʜᴀɴᴛᴀ, Jesus, or another spiritual teacher.
The ECK teachings, introduced by Paul Twitchell, recognize a historical lineage of spiritual teachers known as the ECK Masters, some of whom you may already know. You may also meet the Mᴀʜᴀɴᴛᴀ in your inner explorations. These spiritual teachers stand ready to guide you, but they only do so at your inner invitation. It is a relationship of mutual respect.Learn More about the ECK Masters

EXPERIENCE THE TRUTH WITHIN YOU
How to Approach the Spiritual ExercisesThe Spiritual Exercises of ECK give you confidence in yourself. You learn that you are Soul, you are eternal. Then you know with certainty that you live forever, that death cannot destroy you.
A Dream ExerciseDreams are an easy and natural way to pursue spiritual unfoldment. Here is an exercise you can try before you go to sleep. It can help you see your problems from a higher viewpoint to aid you in your life.
A Technique to Go SlowerLife puts you in situations that can cause you to panic. You have to remember to calm down, to get yourself, Soul, back in control of the mind.
A Way to Build Self-ConfidenceIf you should have your real strength of character marred by lack of self-confidence, use this technique to build yourself up again.
Self-ProtectionTo protect yourself you must remember two principles: (1) never believe that you will be harmed by anything or anybody, because you are ageless, eternal Soul; and (2) practice fearlessness by never being afraid of anything
Making Your PlansYou are starting as a limited human being set down in a world of plenty. There is no limitation except for the limitations you have made for yourself. These limitations are very real.
Game of Chess–Getting an OverviewYou can do this exercise anytime—whether you are at work, in contemplation, or about to fall asleep. Lightly place your attention upon a situation in your life, then put your viewpoint as Soul above the situation.
An Edge for HealthHU, the secret name of God, opens you as a channel for the greater healing of Divine Spirit. Every thought, word, or deed either purifies or pollutes the body. This is very important, very powerful, because it deals with your state of consciousness.
Restoring HarmonyWhenever somebody is making it difficult for you at work, simply sing HU quietly to yourself. Let the other person vent his rage, and just wait and see what the ECK will do to work out the situation.
Purifying the Thought StreamThere is a stream of consciousness from the mind that constantly goes through you. Chanting the HU keeps the stream pure.
Seeing through the Inner Senses“The extrovertive way looks outward, through the physical senses into the external world, finding there the greater experience of the divine reality.”
Bringing the Future into the PresentThe past, present, and future are all one. They are a continuum. The past still exists now, the future is here and now, and as is the present. They’re all mixed, back and forth, in and out.
Doorway to HeavenEvery time you walk through a doorway today, whether at work or at home, know that on the inner planes you are walking through a doorway to heaven. And that is every doorway, as long as you recognize this in your consciousness.
For Peace and JoyHere’s a spiritual exercise to try if you want to experience the Light or Sound of God: Shut your eyes and look into the Spiritual Eye. (It’s between your eyebrows, in the center of your forehead.) Sing HU, an ancient name for God, one of the most powerful words for spiritual upliftment.
On the Mountain of GodThis is a technique of the imagination. Find a quiet place for this spiritual exercise where no one will disturb you for ten or fifteen minutes.
To Let God Love YouEverything in the right amount brings an abundance of life and fulfillment. Nature reflects the laws of ECK. Therefore, observe its workings in the habits of birds, the cycles of plants, and the instincts of the reptiles and mammals.
Seeds of DestinyFind a quiet place. Settle in and take a couple of deep breaths. You can close your eyes and begin to chant HU in a long drawn out breath. Repeat this for several moments. As you do this, imagine seeing the Light of God as a huge golden sun pouring its warmth into your life.
