The foundation of Breath Alchemy is a simple exercise called twenty circular breaths. You can do this exercise throughout the day, whenever you feel the need. However, it is recommended that for the first week you only do it once daily:
1. Take four short breaths. 2. Then take one long breath. 3. Pull the breaths in and out through your nose. 4. Do four sets of the five breaths, that is, four sets of four short breaths followed by one long breath without stopping, for a total of twenty breaths.
Circular breathing means any kind of breathing that fits the following three criteria:
Now, what is the effect of the circular breathing? The simplest way to explain it is that it gives you complete circuits of energy in your body in a way that enhances your awareness of the life force energy in your body.
Use the short breaths to emphasize the connecting and merging of the inhale and the exhale into unbroken circles.
Use the long breath to fill your lungs as completely as you comfortably can on the inhale, and to let go completely on the exhale.
Breathe at a speed that feels natural for you. It is important that the breathing be free and natural and rhythmical, rather than forced or controlled. This is what enables you to breathe prana as well as air.
Since most of us have developed bad breathing habits you might experience some physical sensations, such as lightheadedness or tingling sensations in your hands or elsewhere. If you will tune these feelings in and make peace with them, you will notice that the sensations may change and become less overwhelming, and more generative of healing. This indicates that you are learning about breathing consciously and are getting direct benefits in your body.
Daily practice of this exercise will teach you more about breathing than you have ever learned in your entire life.
I must emphasize that this is only a taste of the Breath Alchemy Technique. An actual guided session takes you light years beyond anything this beginning exercise can give you.
