Without hesitation, Gracie took a deep breath, quieted herself, and unhesitantly stepped onto the very center of her Model X17 pink Yoga mat. Ganesha then instructed her to place both of her palms together at the center of her chest. “Always begin every Yoga pose by starting with your hands in this position. The heart has it’s own special and unique energy that is connected to the very core of the Field. By placing your hands there first, you are able to open the communication between yourself and the quantum field of energy that surrounds us all”, Ganesha explained. Gracie placed her hands as instructed. “Now, Gracie, place your feet about eight inches apart or space them to where you feel stable. This is known as the ‘point of origin’ stance that forms the beginning of all standing movement in Yoga practice. It is known as Tadasana, The Standing Mountain. It teaches us how to be still and stable and it opens the energy in the spine. It may not seem like much, but later, you will appreciate its importance. Most people never practice this pose and so, loose access to the gateway of all the other poses.

Gracie stood in Tadasana and felt an immediate sensation that went from her toes all the way up to the tip of her nose, not unlike ginger ale, before it moved all the way up to the top of her head. For an instant, she felt a little lightheaded. She had an image of those beanie caps with the propeller on them. If she was wearing one, her propeller would be spinning at light speed, she thought to herself. Ganesha, seeing the effect on Gracie, started to laugh so hard that his big pink belly began to shimmer like a bowl of strawberry jello. This brought Gracie right back into reality. “Wow”, said Gracie. “I guess I passed my first lesson”! “You certainly did and with flying colors, if you’ll pardon my jest”, said Ganesha. “You are now ready to command the X17 to get you to school on time, since by third dimensional time you are already forty-five minutes late! Before you step off the mat, simply say ‘X17, please get me to school on time’, and it will. X17 is programmed to follow your every command, so do be very careful of what you wish for or what you say aloud while standing upon it. Now off with you, dear girl”! Ganesha then disappeared into thin air, leaving a huge curl of plump smoke in the air. Pink smoke!
