You see the secret really is in how we conceptualize our breathing. Because normally when we breathe we, well we assume that we are absorbing oxygen from the environment and exhaling neutrogen. But actually, we exist on several planes and at the level of energy we are drawing energy from the environment.
So when we inhale, we always think that we are moving from outside towards inside or shifting energy from outside to inside. So there’s a way of breathing that is rather strange and remarkable. One can breathe as though from inside, as though one were calling the emergence of aspects of oneself that are subliminal into being actuated in our being.
We generally think that turning within is shifting our attention from outside towards inside and there’s always a danger of getting encapsulated in that sense of what we mean by inside. Whereas, really speaking, it is reaching out from within.
So that reflects in our way of breathing, draw energy through let’s say your solar plexus as you inhale. Imagine that your solar plexus is a door that can open towards inside or towards outside. So now it is opening from inside towards outside as you breathe in. And now, as you hold your breath you are the transducers who are converting all pervading light into radiant light. So that when you exhale, you are radiating that light that was originally not radiating but was all pervading.
