How strong is your prana? Prana or Holy Breath is life force energy -- and we all have it! You can live without speech, sight or hearing, but when the breath (prana) leaves, the physical body dies.
But prana is much more than just the breath. It is the life force of the Universe and all creation.
When our prana is blocked or depleted we may experience "dis-ease" of the mind and/or body. But we can ease these conditions almost immediately through the use of prana-boosting PHONEME-INFUSED™ herbs and lifestyle techniques that empower your health, happiness, brain power, and your ability to manifest, to create and to attract divine, synchronistic “coincidences."
Keep reading, and expand your prana using these six powerful practices:
Be Mindful of Energy-Sucking Environments
Certain environments drain prana. Places to avoid include the greedy, desperate energy of a casino, the anxiety we often experience around hospitals or the sensory overload created by loud industrial environments. We can also preserve protect our prana by limiting our time around gossips, demanding relatives, and people who drain us by constantly taking -- our attention, time, or sympathy - while giving nothing back to the relationship.
When you appreciate beauty, you’re opening yourself to prana. Go out for a walk and enjoy the plant life you see, or the sunset, or stars, or the moon. Give thanks to all of them.
Eat Fresh Foods
Processed foods are filled with preservatives that drain your prana. Wherever possible,treat your body to fresh fruits and vegetables filled with life force energy. If you’re pressed for time or on a limited budget, frozen, pre-cut vegetables are also a good choice, because they are harvested when ripe.
The Conscious Breath & Third-Eye Breathing
The ancient languages of Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew each had a word for Holy Breath. They were pneuma (the root of “pneumonia”), ruha and ruach. In modern English, it’s called the Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost. Although you wouldn’t know it from medieval British translations, Jesus taught that Spirit and breath are inseparable in human life.
Conscious breathing energizes your brain and body with prana. Your breath is also an indicator of the state of your prana and mind. If you’re anxious or suppressing uncomfortable memories or emotions, your breathing becomes shallow and restricted.. When the mind is free and open, your breath is deeper and your prana is calm.
Third Eye Breathing Exercise
This is a variation of the yoga pranayama exercise called “Alternate Nostril Breathing”. It has at least two other names in Sanskrit. As taught in yoga studios, this practice helps you open your third eye and still your prana. Adding an extra visualization to it can enhance the effects on the Third Eye.
1 Take the index and middle fingers of the right hand and place their tips in the Third Eye area. It’s just above the point between the two eyebrows, and your pea-size pineal gland is just a little bit inward from there. Cover your right nostril with your thumb. Keep the ring finger ready to cover the left nostril. Also keep the fingers touching your Third Eye point straight.
2 With the right nostril covered with your thumb, inhale a long and steady breath through the left nostril for a count of eight. Imagine that your breath is white light entering your Third Eye, and feel your Third Eye getting brighter. Feel it cleansing your pineal gland, the physical component of the Third Eye.
3 Hold the breath for a count of four, and enjoy the feeling of stillness between breaths.
4 Unplug your right nostril and cover the left nostril with your ring finger. Exhale through the right nostril for a count of eight. Imagine all tension and negativity exiting with the breath.
5 Hold the breath for a count of four. These pauses will energize your brain and Third Eye with prana.
6.With the right nostril still open, inhale for a count of eight. Visualize white light nourishing and cleansing your Third Eye.
7 Hold for a four count.
8 Cover the right nostril again and exhale bad energy and tension out the left nostril.
9 Pause for a count of four.
10 Repeat all of the above, beginning with inhaling through the left nostril.
