Breathe into an extraordinary life

As soon as we start living from our inner consciousness, we start on the upward emotional spiral; at the peak of which is the feeling of freedom, love, joy and peace.

It is human tendency to neglect things that we do not control. For instance, have you ever wondered how our digestive system works? Not the science behind the mechanism but have you ever appreciated how it separates all the nutrients from the food we eat and manages to digest even the most complex food that we eat. These days our body has to even deal with the diverse range of chemicals that accompany our food. Of course, at times, our digestive system does not cooperate and we suffer from illnesses. But most of the time, it functions without a glitch, whether we are conscious about it or not.

The same goes for our breath. We are never really conscious of our breathing pattern or how it is helping us in our day to life.

Take a few moments to reflect on this statement – 70% of our metabolic waste is eliminated through breathing; the balance 30% is eliminated through perspiration (19%), urination (8%) and defecation (3%).

The fact is astonishing; most people are surprised at this statement. Our body gets the energy to purify, getting rid of toxins and stresses, and to rejuvenate us because of our breath. Yet very few of us pay attention to our breath, rather how we breathe. However, correct breathing allows us to access unlimited amounts of energy, which we can use to carry out the repair work within us, and also to take us at higher levels.

SKY Healing technique is one method which allows you to do just that.

Most of the time, we are living from our outer consciousness; which is made up of our karma, experiences, memories and conditioning. Practicing SKY helps in breaking the layers of conditioning and living through our inner consciousness or soul.

As soon as we start living from our inner consciousness, we release our fears, stresses, insecurities, and all the other worldly worries. No matter how depressed or angry we were, we start on the upward emotional spiral; at the peak of which is the feeling of freedom, love, joy and peace.

The one feedback I have received from maximum SKY practitioners is that they feel this peace. Their life is no longer governed by negative emotions.

Since it keeps us completely free from negative emotions, which is the root cause of our physical diseases, we also heal the physical issues. I have heard of people healing phantom pains, diabetes, blood pressure issues, among others.

SKY has the potential of bringing harmony in our body, mind and soul. One can heal and also experience inner transformation and spiritual growth. All because of practicing a 12-minute breathing pattern. That’s the power of breath.

Meditation – A way of life

Meditation is perhaps the most talked-about word amongst today’s ‘spiritual’ populace. The problem is that it is also the most misunderstood word. Each person will have his or her own definition or understanding about what meditation stands for. There’s nothing wrong in this as long as everyone is practicing what is being preached. However, most often the truth is otherwise.

Few thoughts on meditation we all get from time to time…

  • I know meditation is great for my mind, body, and spirit. I deeply feel the need to practice meditation daily.
  • Many times I think randomly, “I should meditate at-least sometime,” but when it comes down to it, I really don’t.
  • I strongly suspect I’m not the only one who feels this way.
  • I’ve read many books on how to meditate or I have attended many meditation classes, however it doesn’t help.
  • I also know all those ways to meditate feel like work

If you get similar thoughts as well, you are definitely not alone. In fact, you will be a part of the majority. If that makes you feel good… great! Most of us will be feeling the same way about meditation. Meditation is work; meditation is boring; meditation is time consuming; meditation is only for a few special people; it’s for people who love mysticism; Meditation is a part of religion or religious activity. These are all the examples of common misconceptions about meditation. These are also the most often used excuses for not meditating.

But let me tell you, meditation is not all that hard. Believe me. Once we make up our mind, we just need to find a quite place. That’s it. We don’t really have to do anything. As a matter of fact meditation is actually going from ‘doing something’ to ‘not doing anything’. Even if we are able to experience the present moment to its fullest by just “Being”, that’s enough. Meditation is a process which takes us from “doing” to “being”. After reading many scriptures, books, practicing various types of meditations and interactions with masters, my personal experience is that whatever is hard to do is simply not meditation. I have found that the simplest and easiest way, which is also very effective, to meditate is through introspection or “just being”. It takes away the importance normally given to the knowledge of doctrines, scriptures, etc. before starting to meditate, making it extremely simple for a first timer. I have observed that most of the time, lot of importance is given to what you know about meditation or how it is practiced, or it’s good, bad, and side effects. This really creates a false aura around meditation, which makes a new comer really think whether this should be taken up or whether this can really be followed regularly; or what if one is not following or practicing it regularly. In reality, anyone… I repeat, “anyone” can practice meditation, whenever he or she can, without any limitations of place, time, type of clothes, method, posture what so ever. It’s that easy. Let’s not make it complicated… really. Even a little child can just be… or an old person for that matter. Lao Tzu, a mystic philosopher of ancient China said, “The way to do is to be.” We can call this self observation… meaning just observing the breath for example, or the how beautifully the wind flows making the leaves of a tree sway, or the blueness of the sky, or sound of a bird. We can even observe our own thoughts, how beautifully they are woven; one leading to the other.
