  • The Yogi Nerve Vitalizing Breath. This is an exercise well known to the Yogis, who consider it one of the strongest nerve stimulants and invigorants known to man. Its purpose is to stimulate the Nervous System, develop nerve force, energy and vitality. This exercise brings a stimulating pressure to bear on important nerve centres, which in turn stimulate and energize the entire nervous system, and send an increased flow of nerve force to all parts of the body. 1) Stand erect. 2)Inhale a Complete Breath and retain same. 3) Extend arms straight in front of you, letting them be somewhat limp and relaxed, with only sufficient nerve force to hold them out. 4) Slowly draw the hands back toward the shoulders, gradually contracting the muscles and putting force into them, so that when they reach the shoulders the fists will be so tightly clenched that a tremulous motion is felt. 5) Then keeping the muscles tense, push the fists slowly out and then draw them back rapidly (still tense) several times. 6) Exhale vigorously through the mouth. 7) Practice the cleansing breath.

  • Inhale for four seconds. Hold the breath for eight seconds and exhale for four seconds.Repeat this four times in the morning and four times in the evening. It would be better to measure the time by some word which is holy to you. Inhale through the left nostril and exhale through the left.The reverse the process. Go on thus reversing the process.

  • Alternate nostril breathing is apparently good for the nerves. Here is Swami Vivekananda (disciple of Ramakrishna) on Pranayama. In spiritualism Prana is the sum total of universal energy. It is the prime energy which has its manifest form in all visible forces. The universe is created when Prana acts upon the sky-element. We breathe and the blood circulates because of it. The same Prana is in our nerves, muscles and the brain. If we can control the breathing we will gradually achieve more and more subtle forces.

  • WIm Hof breathing is probably the easiest to become acquainted with, though it is far from easy to practice. After a period of time, it would probably get to where you could say it was easy. Best way is to start a practice, pretty much any practice and go from there.

  • It took me quite a while of focusing on the breath to actually get it, so to speak. Well, for one, it is very quiet and there appear to be no thoughts, so that should be an encouragement! The quiet , after all those thoughts racing through trying to get your attention. That is what they want after all, your attention so they can distract you. If your attention is owned by you, then you can rest in peace.

  • Breath and life are perhaps synonymous. What is one without the other? At least on the physical plane. I do believe there is no need for breathing on other planes of existence. That is possibly going too far. If you have ever tried to meditate and thought , what can I meditate on? Meditate on breathing in and out. When you get there, then you can find out other things to do.

    I worked with this after I learned how to breathe properly by God's grace. I was on the bus and I was playing with my breath and I had it so I could do 1 breath per minute and I did notice that there were fewer thoughts - though this could be due to the blood sounding louder in the head but I digress. I read much later that in Kriya Yoga - one of the goals was to keep the body alive with no breath because then there are no thoughts and when there are no thoughts reality starts to slip through.
