Take a breather

Take a Breather

No new blackboard yet, few more words to work your way through before the pictures come up again. This is a tip to help the process, which may be unfamiliar, of diving inside your Self, becoming quiet, stilling the mind. The idea is that the Power Seed is a tool to do that, but you need all the help you can get, and I like this one because it underlines, simply and directly, the connection between the physical and the non-physical; if breathing can affect the speed of your mind’s activity and indeed help you break through into Soul Consciousness, then it must work the other way round, right? Soul Consciousness – the ‘vibe’ of your spiritual energy – affects the physical world, in the form of your body, and by logical progression, the world around you. Yes, I know, sounds a bit hippy dippy, talking about vibes; but it is demonstrably true. Souls create atmosphere, which is another way of saying ‘vibe’. Compare the atmosphere in a football crowd or at a boxing match with the one in a church or temple, whether people are there or not. That’s the vibration of the energy that prevails in one circumstance or another. Matter is energy, and energy vibrates; Soul is energy, and energy vibrates.

It’s your Magic Minute. Turn your attention inside yourself. Go quiet, and begin to make your mind enquire about itself. Observe. Now, shift your attention to your breathing, and make the in and outflow of air ‘sound’ at the top back of your nasal cavity where it passes into your windpipe, right at the opening of the internal auditory canal. It’s that part of the plumbing system for your breathing where the air makes a sound when you snore. I’m not suggesting you start snoring, but it’s easy to feel because you can hear it sound inside your head, a hollow resonance of audible breath. Let’s have a pic:

You begin to ‘hear’ your breath at the opening of the internal auditory canal

It automatically and immediately takes your consciousness below your mind level, as it were, and brings you to quietness and contemplation. Many meditations require you to do just this and only this; watch your breath. Now that you have detached, and can hear your breath going in and out, see what happens when you relax your throat muscles, and ideally your tongue as well. The tongue is a huge lump of living muscle, working away even when you’re not talking or eating, creating saliva and generally doing its thing. Let it go. Feel it shrink. It’s rooted way down your throat, and as it relaxes, your mouth begins to feel as if there’s more room in it, and your brain settles. Don’t push it; let it go. Brain settles, mind calms, the true energy of Your Self begins to run clear. That can be your power seed for this particular Magic Minute; <<Don’t push it or pull it; Let it go.>>

About Aidan

The Ecology of the Soul is the culmination of a lifetime of study and practice of hatha yoga and Raj Yoga. Aidan studied with BKS Iyengar, and was a dedicated member of the Brahma Kumaris, teachers of Raja Yoga, during his 20s. The basic understanding of the Soul and God is pure Raja Yoga, but it is the 'ecology' principle that drives the system's emphasis on balancing our spiritual powers. We return to our natural state of happiness, contentment, peace – and power.
