EXTENDED SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

WEAKNESS IN THE APANIC ENERGY FLOW, AND ITS SYMPTOMS

When the Apanic energy … the downward and outward coursing energy of the human spine … is weak, there may be the following symptoms:

  • Insomnia
  • Panic attack or generalized anxiety
  • Feelings of fear, or of being threatened
  • Being either hyperactive or tired all the time (the tiredness happens when the adrenals are worn out)
  • A feeling of ‘light-footedness’
  • Lack of grounding
  • Aches in the feet and ankles

Below is an Apanic Breathing Exercise that helps with all the above, as well as with:

  • Damage to a person’s apanic balance that occurs when anal intercourse is performed on them
  • The black magic curse ‘May you lift your tailbone’ … which is malware installed on both men and women. This malware curse is sometimes clair heard to be a way to make people more susceptible to other astral being negative ‘downgrades’, so it’s something to look out for and transform right to the light as soon as possible.
  • The unsettled, turbulent astral air that is clair felt during Solar Events

AN APANIC BREATHING EXERCISE

For insomnia, do this breathing exercise lying down on your back. For the other instances, lying on the back is fine; standing or sitting are fine as well. Here’s the exercise:

  • Inhale a short, sharp, forceful breath.
  • Exhale sharply and forcefully, taking about twice as much time to exhale.
  • Repeat the inhale and exhale two more times (a total of three times)
  • As you do the exercise, imagine energy (ki or chi) coursing down through the top of the head, down through the body, and out the feet.

WEAKNESS IN THE PRANIC ENERGY FLOW, AND ITS SYMPTOMS

When the Pranic energy … the downward and outward coursing energy of the human spine … is weak, there may be the following symptoms:

  • Sleeping too much
  • Being either hyperactive or tired all the time (the tiredness happens when the adrenals are worn out)
  • A dull feeling in the head
  • A feeling of ‘heavy footedness’
  • A tendency to view things more as physical phenomena, without the inspiration of Spirit
  • A feeling of aggressiveness, or V— D— mental filter
  • Feelings of anger, rage, or violence
  • The desire to fight someone or to threaten them
  • The desire to perform anal intercourse on someone

A PRANIC BREATHING EXERCISE

This breathing exercise may be done lying down on your back. standing or sitting. Here’s the exercise. It’s very simple:

  • Inhale very sharply, long and deep.
  • Exhale very gently, and more slowly, taking about twice as much time to exhale.
  • Repeat the inhale and exhale two more times (three times in all).
  • As you do the exercise, imagine energy (ki or chi) coursing up through the soles of your feet, up through the body, and out the crown of the head.

EXERCISES FOR BALANCED PRANA AND APANA

The goal of pranic-apanic breathing is to balance the flow of Prana and Apana through the nostrils. Yet most of us have a habit of breathing in more forcefully than we breathe out … or vice versa.

The breathing exercises described above are a beginning toward balanced pranic-apanic breathing. Long-term, though, a goal might be to observe the breath through the nostrils:

  • Is it flowing equally through the right and left nostril, or more through one or the other?
  • Is the inbreath equal in forcefulness and duration to the outbreath, or is one more forceful or longer?
  • Just observe; don’t try to change anything; be of neutral mind.

NATURAL BREATHING ON FALLING ASLEEP AND WAKING UP

Note that the Apanic Breathing Exercise described above is sometimes practiced naturally; that is, involuntarily or subconsciously, at the moment when we drift off to sleep.

Similarly, the Pranic Breathing Exercise described above is sometimes practiced that is, involuntarily or subconsciously,. at the moment when we wake up.

In fact, these two breaths may be the body’s Key that changes the brain waves from the waking state to the sleeping state, in the case of the Apanic Breath described above, and from the sleeping state back to the waking state, in the case of the Pranic Breath described above.

A WAY TO DO YOGA NIDRA (LUCID SLEEPING AND DREAMING)

If one wants to practice Yoga Nidra, the art of lucid sleeping and lucid dreaming, of being aware while the brain is sleeping, one may:

  • Lie down on the back
  • Starting at the top of the head, consciously relax the entire body, part by part. Then,
  • Practice the Apanic Breathing Exercise described above.
  • Then begin shallow, soft breathing, in and out.  The pace of the breath will happen naturally; because the breath is shallow, the pace tends to be relatively quick … but not very fast, and not very slow.
  • To move from the state of lucid sleeping to that of lucid dreaming, lengthen the inbreaths and outbreaths slightly. Keep the breathing shallow and soft so as not to arouse the sleeping body.
  • When ready to transition to a waking state, practice the Pranic Breathing Exercise described above. Practice it just once.
  • Stretch and take a long, deep breath, in and out, before getting up.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
