What does your breathing have to do with anything? Most people don’t even think about this question because breathing is something that happens naturally and unconsciously. What if I’d tell you that it works the other way around as well? That through breathing, one is able to access into the conscious mind and be able to have control. Your will, to make things happen just by using your mind. How by just using the power of your intention, make changes inside your body. Now, if you relate both the breathing (the physical) and your mind (the nonphysical) coming together, you will absolutely have a greater outcome inside a positive outcome inside your own body. More control, more influence, more benefits. That’s the mind and the breathing coming together. Does it sound familiar yet? Let’s further apply it. Energy similar to blood, flows inside us and it to do its function, we need to breathe, we need to oxygenize. While doing so, you unconsciously breathe in the ambient energy to maintain our energy flowing. We manifest it quite often, but through others knowledge. Not our own understanding of what lies inside, infused within us. We can seek deep within ourselves and utterly understand these connections. Complete understanding of mana. The mind, the body, and our soul. 

The Method, The Practice, and The Training.

The breathing technique is focused on a deep, rhythmic, and continuous breath. It is equal on the inhale and the exhale, with no pause between them. Could be described as “controlled hyperventilation or power breathing” and are followed by a retention time, where you hold your breath for a x amount of time. When done correctly, you should feel you can go indefinitely. It can make you feel odd, challenged, and spacey the first few times you try it, but it is worth having the patience to learn. Have in mind that you are inducing voluntarily a short stress response which ultimately will lead to more resilience towards everyday stress, mentally and physiology and feeling more in control. You can notice the breathing is done correctly by noticing the following. When you inhale, your belly expands. When you exhale, your belly contracts back. A great way to test this is to put your hand onto your belly. With each inhale, your belly presses into your palm. On the exhale your belly snaps back into your spine. Make your inhale and exhale the same pace and equal length. The inhale is passive, and the exhale is powerful.

Step 1: Get Comfortable

Assume a meditation posture: sitting, lying down (whichever is most comfortable for you). Make sure you can expand your lungs freely without feeling any constriction. 

Step 2: 30-40 Deep Breaths (Power Breaths)

Close your eyes and try to clear your mind. Be conscious of your breath and try to fully connect with it. Inhale deeply through the nose or mouth, and exhale unforced through the mouth. Fully inhale through the belly, then chest and then let go unforced. Repeat this 30 to 40 times in short, powerful bursts. During the power breaths, delve into your body and become aware of it as possible. Trace your awareness up and down your body and use your intuition as to what parts lack energy and what parts are overflowing. Scan for any blockage between the two. Try to send energy/warmth to those blockages. Then release them deeper and deeper. You may experience light-headedness, and tingling sensations in your fingers and feet. These side effects are completely harmless. But once you encounter them, go into them, embrace them, merge with them. Get to know this inner world and how it correlates to the feeling of tension or blockages in your body. 

Step 3: The hold

After the last exhalation, inhale one final time, as deeply as you can. Then let the air out and stop breathing. Hold until you feel the urge to breathe again. Really relax and open all energy channels in your body. Notice how all the oxygen is spreading around in your body. Hold the breath until you experience the gasp reflex on the top of your chest. 

Step 4: Recovery Breath

When you feel the urge to breathe again, draw one big breath to fill your lungs. Feel your belly and chest expanding. When you are at full capacity, hold the breath once more. Notice that you can direct the energy with your awareness. Focus on your energy. This will help to bring you to the next level. Focus on areas of your body where the energy is not flowing. These are energy blockages, and each one will require focus and determination to fix it and get the energy flowing as it should. Use this time to scan the body and see where there is tension or blockages. Feel the edges of this tension, go into it, move the energy towards this black hole. Feel the constrictions burning away, the dark places fill with light. Relax the body deeper as you move further inward, let everything go. Your body knows better than you do. After 15 seconds let go. That completes the round. This cycle can be repeated without intervals. 

Once you’ve finished, slow and stop forcing your breathing, and meditate on the breath. Let your breath rest in its natural flow. It’s common to sense a subtle buzz, a glow, or some tingling in the body and face after the breath. If you feel dizzy, lightheaded, or giddy, slow your pace the next time you practice. Some tingling, traveling sensations, and lightheadedness are completely normal as your body adjusts to the new breath and new stimulation of the nerves. Sometimes these symptoms are the result of toxins and other chemicals released by the breathing technique. 

Got the form down? Make your breathing slightly faster, keeping your breath at an equal pace on the inhale and the exhale. If you’re a beginner, slow it down! It doesn’t have to be fast to be effective. If it’s hard for your belly and abs, you’re doing it right. When done correctly, there should be no rigidity of hands, feet, face, lips, throat, or abdomen.

The breath helps you circulate your blood faster and more efficiently through your lungs and blood vessels, which is really helpful in removing the buildup of substances and other chemicals from your systems and significantly increase the amount of oxygen in the blood and the brain. So though this breathing technique is an energizing one, it is also incredibly cleansing as it helps support the elimination process.

I made it my daily practice to do the breathing technique. I quickly saw a difference in my focus, calmness, peace of mind, and I felt more energized. It was like a superpower breathe that got me centered much quicker than simply deep long breathes. I believe you can get similar results from meditation, especially if you start to do it consistently or every day. 

Among the benefits, these are a few noticed:

  • Expands the lung capacity and increases vital strength.
  • Increases physical endurance and prepares you to act effectively.
  • Increases oxygen delivery to the brain, facilitating a focused, intelligent, and neutral state of mind.
  • Helps you regain control in a stress, survival, or competitive situations.
  • Generates constancy in both your mental and your physical states. 
  • Generates heat and increases your level of energy by activating the energy flows in your body.
  • Charges your aura and circumvent force to give you greater protection against negative forces.
  • Synchronizes your entire system under one rhythm, thus promoting greater internal harmony.
  • Magnifies the benefits of exercises done in conjunction with the method.

It is important to develop strong lung capacity before trying this breathing technique for extended periods of time. For this, it is suggested to do exercise, altitude, and cold exposure training. Running, the cold and other activities cause your heart rate and breathing rates to increase, so your body has enough oxygen and strengthens your heart and lungs. At high altitudes, you will see improvements in your maximal oxygen uptake (the ability to take oxygen in and move it into the blood stream), among other things. All a result of the red blood cell production caused by the adaptation to pressure.

When done properly, the breath is not dangerous. However, it is important to have a strong practice before you incorporate this breathing technique into your combat and aura. Because the practice uses the stomach muscles to sharply push into the diaphragm, it’s also important to be in good physical condition while practicing this technique.

Lastly, it is important to master this breath so that it is done accurately and becomes automatic. During the day focus on deeper more conscious breathing. Overall, the breathing technique doesn’t take that long to master, and it comes with amazing benefits. This form is a great addition to your wellness routine to build internal heat and move blocked energy. 

Meditation is a process of lightening up, of trusting the basic goodness of what we have and who we are, and of realizing that any wisdom that exists, exists in what we already have. We can lead our life so as to become more awake to who we are and what we’re doing rather than trying to improve or change or get rid of who we are or what we’re doing. The key is to wake up, to become more alert, more inquisitive, and curious about ourselves. Combining meditative focused breathing techniques, movement, visualization, and intention to promote such results. “Master the breath and it is the key to higher consciousness.” As the breath connects you to your higher self.

Mantra / “Humming”

Breathe, let be and attune focus to everything.
Through the mind to the inner energy source, the life force, the soul, the spirit, the mana.
Create aural expansure at will and manifestations as your tool.
Meditation is the tongue of the soul and the language of our spirit.
No minding about it. Just follow the feeling and go deep.
Go past the conditioning, pass the limits. Do not force, no need to force.
You will go past the mind, by going into it. Just breathe towards it. Let it all happen.
Just go, go with the flow. Create your own flow and go.
Going into the depths, not being accessible but now it is. Finding answers in the depth.
All controlled, as you learn to control in the depth. Going deep into your system.
You are able to influence the body and all that lies within.
And you do it all consciously, as this is conscious breathing.
If you have lack of energy, just breathe deeper. Want energy? Breathe deep.
Know that you are influencing the processes to transform more energy.
Thus, you become the energy manager and that’s all about energy management.
Amazing what can be done consciously with breathing and believing.
And now it’s been brought to your consciousness.
So, in the future there should be no problem transforming more energy.
When you like it, when you need it, when you want to.
Become the master, the manager over your energy.
