Telepathic, dream, and astral sex – it’s a blast. Making it sound easy is one thing, but doing it is another. Therefore, any possible ways to simplify the process should be considered. We should check out the various techniques that foster these profound experiences in our continuing exploration of out-of-body ecstasy. One method often underestimated due to its simplicity, yet the powerful impact is breathwork. Today, conscious breathing and its potential role in facilitating out-of-body ecstasy (OBEs).
Breathwork, in its most basic definition, refers to techniques that involve consciously controlling and modifying breathing patterns. Frequently used in meditation, yoga, and different healing practices, breathwork can lead to altered consciousness, emotional release, and spiritual growth.
In out-of-body ecstasy, breathwork is a non-pharmacological method for altering one’s consciousness, making it easier to detach the spiritual self from the physical body. It acts as a gateway, an access point from which the journey into different planes of consciousness can start.
Breathwork Techniques for Out-of-Body Experiences
Numerous breathwork techniques are available, but some are particularly suited for preparing the body and mind for OBEs.
- Holotropic Breathwork: This technique involves deep and fast rhythmic breathing, often done in long sessions. Developed by psychiatrist Stanislav Grof, Holotropic Breathwork can induce a state of consciousness that promotes personal insight, self-discovery, and out-of-body experiences.
- Box Breathing: This technique involves inhaling, holding the breath, exhaling, and holding the breath again, each for an equal count (like a box). The rhythm and balance in Box Breathing can create a meditative state that aids in achieving OBEs.
- 4-7-8 Breathing: In this technique, you inhale for 4 seconds, hold your breath for 7 seconds, and exhale for 8 seconds. This pattern tends to induce deep relaxation, preparing the mind and body for possible out-of-body experiences.
- Alternate Nostril Breathing (Nadi Shodhana): This traditional yoga breath control practice involves breathing in and out through one nostril at a time, alternating between nostrils. This method is believed to balance the body’s energy systems and calm the mind, facilitating relaxation conducive to out-of-body experiences.To practice Nadi Shodhana, find a comfortable seated position. Close your right nostril with your right thumb and inhale slowly through your left nostril. Then close your left nostril with your right ring finger, release your thumb, and exhale through your right nostril. Inhale again through the right nostril, close it with your thumb, remove your ring finger from the left nostril, and exhale. Repeat this cycle for a few minutes, taking slow and deep breaths.
- Buteyko Breathing Technique: Developed by the Russian doctor Konstantin Buteyko, this method involves shallow, slow breathing, aiming to increase carbon dioxide levels in the blood, which can lead to relaxation and calming of the nervous system. To practice the Buteyko method, sit comfortably, relax your muscles, and breathe through your nose for about two seconds, then breathe out for about three seconds. After a few rounds of this, hold your breath after a gentle exhale until you feel a slight air shortage, then resume gentle breathing. This technique is about gentle, controlled breathing and should not cause discomfort.
Applying Breathwork to Out-of-Body Ecstasy
Breathwork can be a powerful tool to achieve out-of-body ecstasy. However, it requires practice, patience, and persistence. Before starting a session, ensure you are in a comfortable, quiet environment where you can relax without interruption. As you breathe, allow yourself to focus on the sensation of your breath flowing in and out of your body, gently guiding your mind away from the physical world and into the spiritual realm.
Remember that each person’s journey to out-of-body ecstasy is unique. Breathwork is just one of many tools available, and it might take time and practice to discover which techniques work best for you.
While breathwork is generally safe, some techniques can be intense and should be done under the guidance of a trained professional, especially for beginners. People with certain health conditions, such as cardiovascular or respiratory problems, should consult a healthcare professional before beginning a breathwork practice.
Breathwork offers a natural, accessible route to altered states of consciousness. It can act as a bridge to out-of-body experiences. As you explore these breathing techniques, remember that the journey is as important as the destination. Take time, practice regularly, and let your personal growth guide your trip to out-of-body ecstasy.
