There are ancient breath techniques that can change the energy in our body naturally and easily, and I am so thankful that I have learned these techniques and can now pass them on to others! Once you learn them you will have these tools available to use anytime you need to shift your energy. I do not drink coffee, red bulls, pills, etc (enter in any chemical or unnatural form of energizing your body people use) and everyone always asks me how I have SO MUCH ENERGY! So here is one of my secrets

The more you practice it the more benefits you will receive- in addition to energizing your body, this breath oxygenizes your cells and purifies your blood and more (see the complete list of benefits below).

To learn this technique check out my video teaching you this powerful breath technique- breath of FIRE.

**NOTE- Don’t do this breath if you are on your moon cycle (pretty way to say period-sorry guys) or pregnant. A great breath to substitute this for these situations is long deep breathing which you can check out the tutorial for here.

Benefits of Breath of Fire:

  • If you do it 5 to 15 minutes every day, it is the best way to keep the blood purified. (start with 3 minutes and work up)
  • 31 minutes of Breath of Fire every day will regulate the pituitary. Pituitary will regulate the entire glandular system. Glandular system will change the nervous system.
  • BOF is a breath which burns away all disease and karma.
  • It is a conscious voluntary breath.
  • Stimulates the solar plexus to release natural energy throughout the body
  • Raises the voltage of the nervous system
  • Produces a global alpha rhythm in the brain when practiced correctly
  • Increases physical endurance when needed in a survival or competitive situation
  • Strengthens shaky nerves
  • Stimulates the navel point to generate constancy in both your mental and your physical realm. For example, it can help correct inability to keep a promise, inability to concentrate through distracting factors, etc.
  • Quickly oxygenates your blood, thus helping the body detoxify itself and remove waste more effectively.
  • Builds lung capacity and helps purify the respiratory system.
  • Expands lung capacity in a case where someone wants to suspend breathing for a longer period of swimming underwater
  • Generates heat and increases your level of energy by activating the energy flows in your body.
  • Releases toxins and deposits from lungs, mucous lining, blood vessels and cells
  • Helps you regain control in a stress or survival situation
  • 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 and health.
  • Can help overcome addictions and cleanse you of the bad effects of smoking, drug-taking, sugar, alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine.
  • Balances and strengthens the Nervous System.
  • Magnifies the benefits of exercises done in conjunction with this breath.
  • When done forcefully, the pulsating of the diaphragm massages the internal organs, thus improving the digestive system.

NOTES/TIPS:

Breath of Fire is done through the nose and the inhalation and exhalation are of equal duration. The body stays relatively still and relaxed, only the naval point is vigorously working.

In BOF it is essential that the navel point is pulled in only on the exhalation. Some people have developed the habit of pulling in their stomachs on the inhalation. This is called “reversed” breathing.

To check your breathing to make sure that your BOF is not reversed, lie on your back with your hand just below your belly button. As you exhale, be sure that your belly moves inward (your hand should ink toward the floor).

As you relax your naval to inhale, your hand will rise. Be aware of the movement of your hand: it rides toward your spine on the exhalation and away from your spine on the inhalation. Once you became comfortable that your breath is correct while lying down, sit up and again use your hand to make sure that you are using your naval point correctly.

NOTE: At first it is easier to focus on the exhale and start at a slow rhythm. Eventually you want to have a rapid, equal and consistent breath. This breath strengthens the nervous system, purifies the blood and energizes the body. If you can’t do a rapid breath, it will work just as well with a slower breath, still keep inhale and exhale the same length.
