Pranayama Pranayama is a compound term. Prana means life force or breath. Yama means extension. Therefore, pranyama is the practice of extending or amplifying ones life force. More than simple breath-control exercises, pranayama harnesses the prana surrounding us, and by deepening and extending it, leads to a state of inner peace. Benefits of Pranayama Most of us breathe incorrectly, using only half of our lung capacity. When practiced along with yoga asanas, or postures, the benefits of pranayama are even more pronounced. Various Stages of Pranayama The following are the different aspects of pranayama: Puraka (Inhalation) A single inhalation is termed Puraka. Pranayama techniques exist that focus on each of the four stages or aspects mentioned above. A Few Types of Pranayama The complete breath is the most basic form of pranayama. Ujjayi breathing is a common form of yogic breathing which consists of drawing air in through both nostrils with the glottis, or back of the throat held partially closed.
Aura - Learn to see your Aura image with your own eyes What is the Aura ?Everything in the Universe seems to be just a vibration. Every atom, every part of an atom, every electron, every elementary “particle”, even our thoughts and consciousness are just vibrations. Hence, we may define the Aura as a electro-photonic vibration response of an object to some external excitation (such as an ambient light for example). This definition is sufficient for the purpose of reading Auras, providing that we can train ourselves to see the Aura vibration.The most important property of the Aura seems to be the fact that it contains INFORMATION about the object.Aura around living (conscious) objects (people, plants ...) changes with time, sometimes very quickly.
How to See the Aura | Explore Meditation When young children draw pictures of people, they think it quite normal to pick bright colors and scribble over different body parts. They don’t put much thought into it … They grab a pencil or crayon from the pile and scribble where it feels most appropriate. For many people, this lends credibility to their belief that it is common for children to see auras. And what do most teachers and parents do? We may boast that our children have colorful imaginations, but we may well be missing that seeing aura’s is a natural occurance, and inadvertently doing all we can to dull their psychic sense. But seeing auras is a skill that we can re-learn. Anyone can learn how to see the aura . 1. Physical Aura Viewing Let’s look at physically seeing the aura first. Mechanically, the iris is the muscle of the eye that controls the amount of light which is let through the pupil.

The Pranic Body Dr. Swami Satyamurti Saraswati, PhD (Belfast) The nature of prana is light. It is a form of energy existing everywhere, within us and outside us. It is a force capable of being dispersed as well as concentrated within the body. According to yoga, within the physical body is a subtler body known as the pranayama kosha, which forms the subtle network through which prana flows. Researchers working with the Kirlian high voltage photographic apparatus obtain what is believed to be photographs of this subtle pranic field. The pranic field is sometimes called psi plasma due to the fact that it can be likened to the plasma (charged gases) studied in plasma physics. The five pranas "Just as an emperor posts his officials in different parts of his realm, similarly the chief prana allots functions to the lower pranas." Traditionally prana is divided into five zones in the body. 1. There is another subdivision of the pranic force called the upa pranas. Mahaprana Prana and consciousness

Prana Prana (प्राण, prāṇa) is the Sanskrit word for "life force"; in yoga, Indian medicine, and martial arts, the term refers to a cosmic energy believed to come from the sun and connecting the elements of the universe. The universal principle of energy or force, responsible for the body's life, heat and maintenance, prana is the sum total of all energy that is manifest in the universe. This life energy, prana (प्राण), has been vividly invoked and described in Vedas. It is analogous to qi. Nadis In Yoga, the three main channels of praṇā vāyu are the Ida, the Pingala and the Sushumna. Ida relates to the right side of the brain, and the left side of the body, terminating at the left nostril and Pingala to the left side of the brain and the right side of the body, terminating at the right nostril. Sushumna connects the base chakra to the crown chakra. In most ancient texts, the total number of nadis in the human body is stated to be 72,000. Vāyus Pranayama See also
Astral Voyage - Astral Projection - Beginner's Guide Although I have provided links to other interesting Astral Projection web sites, I would like to cover several experiences that I went through as a beginner that might help you. First, what is astral projection? Astral projection is simply the transferring of the consciousness from the physical body to the astral body. Now, I will outline the progress of how I learned to astral project: Desire: First is the desire. Fear: "Fear is the great barrier to human growth." Concentration: One of my personal big obstacles! Relaxation: Countless people have repeatedly stressed this and that's because it's true. Here are some things that I have personally implemented myself: knowing when is "enough" in my career. Focus 10: (aka the hypnagogic state-- see Glossary for term definition). Separation: Ok, now the interesting stuff! The first time is always shocking and you'll usually throw yourself out of the state before anything happens, but if you can, just let the vibrations continue.
