  • there's a lot of information coming out

  • lately about different breathing

  • techniques that can allow you to

  • increase your energy or give you an

  • ability withstand extreme temperatures

  • and basically improve the overall health

  • of your body now wim HOF has been making

  • his style very popular proving that if

  • you do what he does

  • you can almost have superhuman abilities

  • I've also learned the technique of

  • shamanic breathing back when i was

  • living in South America many years ago

  • on how to do very similar things now

  • they're both very simple and very

  • beneficial i'm gonna show you how to do

  • each one of them but just to give you an

  • idea of what you can do is it'll help to

  • increase the health of all of your

  • systems so basically you're nervous

  • system your endocrine system your immune

  • system it can help to increase the pH

  • and oxygenate all of your cells and this

  • can allow for very powerful healing

  • because it will kill endotoxins in your

  • body as well as bacteria now it can also

  • increase your metabolic rate now what

  • this means you'll have an ability to

  • burn fat and lose weight very rapidly

  • and there are many diets based on the

  • system and i'm going to provide links

  • for those in the blog associated with

  • this video it can help to increase your

  • white blood cell count which will allow

  • you to fight disease easier it can help

  • to increase your internal energy or what

  • the Chinese call your Chi which would

  • accomplish the same thing as if you were

  • to go to get acupuncture now it will

  • also put you into a kind of natural high

  • in a very healthy way without taking any

  • drugs and it will bring you an easier

  • ability to get to an altered state in

  • preparation for meditation or something

  • like that in fact in all of my classes

  • and my guided meditations that you'll

  • find on my site I start out with heavy

  • breathing techniques similar to this in

  • order to lower stress and increase your

  • awareness and and go into a deeper state

  • of consciousness so that you can

  • accomplish what you want whether it be

  • visualization or manifestation or just

  • relaxing you can find a whole menu of

  • guided meditations on my site for that

  • doing this can also help you to unlock

  • your pineapple glandore decalcify it

  • which is a part of your brain that is

  • referred to as your connection to higher

  • consciousness or to the universe and

  • unfortunately is dormant in most people

  • because of fluoride in the water and

  • processed foods and other problems in a

  • modern day diet and for more on that you

  • can see my video on decalcifying your

  • pineal gland where i am at the beach in

  • 10-degree weather with my shirt off

  • showing how you can withstand these cold

  • temperatures by doing this practice if

  • you want to

  • now i'm going to show you both

  • techniques we're going to start with wim

  • Hof's method and you can do the sitting

  • comfortably you're laying down and

  • unlike my recommendation for meditation

  • where I always tell people to sit up

  • with the chakras in alignment this one

  • I actually like to do laying down both

  • these in fact with your chakras in

  • alignment

  • I actually do this mostly in the morning

  • as soon as I wake up and I'll do this

  • breathing technique and then I'll sit up

  • straight and allow my chakras to be in

  • alignment that way now it's very simple

  • you're either going to time yourself for

  • two to three minutes or just take 30

  • deep inhales and exhales the breathing

  • pattern is fully in as much as you can

  • and then exhale comfortably just letting

  • go not forcing it out

  • once you get past the two to three

  • minutes or 30 breaths then what you're

  • going to do is let it all out and hold

  • let go of the breath bully and hold on

  • the exhale not taking another breath

  • relaxing yourself into your body and

  • holding the breath for at least one

  • minute and up to three

  • however long you can now once you can't

  • hold any longer take a full inhale and

  • squeeze feeling the energy radiating up

  • your spine for about 15 to 20 seconds as

  • you hold your breath on that inhale to

  • create further awareness you can tap

  • with your hands different parts of your

  • body such as your abdomen your chest

  • your head and most especially the space

  • in between your eyebrows leading to your

  • third eye or your pineal gland this will

  • activate your chakras your brain stem

  • and your pineal gland

  • now imagine moving the energy up and

  • around all of these areas of your body

  • you can also imagine creating an egg of

  • light for love and protection around

  • your body while you're doing this and it

  • will also help you to move the chi

  • within your body any minute and improve

  • the health now you want to do this at

  • least three times and you'll notice each

  • time that you're able to hold your

  • breath longer and the longer you do in

  • other words over time the more days that

  • you do it you'll notice improvement as

  • well now as a bonus step on the final

  • one you can sit up into a horse stance

  • or go on to a plank or somehow hold

  • yourself in strength position that will

  • allow you to see how long you can hold

  • yourself while you're holding your

  • breath and what you'll notice is after

  • doing this for some length of time that

  • you're able to hold that that position

  • for longer as well as you're able to

  • hold it for longer than prior to doing

  • this type of breathing technique but

  • don't stress about the performance

  • that's just so that you know that your

  • improve

  • now that's the entire techniques i

  • usually do that about three times and

  • then start my meditation is mentioned

  • now if you want to take this same

  • principle further using a more powerful

  • technique that's the shamanic breathing

  • with this type of breathing what we're

  • going to do is breathe in and out is

  • hard and aggressively as as possible for

  • us for 10 to 15-minute intervals for up

  • to an hour now in between those

  • intervals after 10 or 15 minutes what

  • you're going to do is hold your breath

  • for as long as you can now the

  • differences with this one, I usually do it

  • on the up breath or somewhere in between

  • rather than on the down breath as we do

  • in the last one now this one is work

  • after about 10 minutes you may notice a

  • powerful wave of emotions coming through

  • you often repressed memories that are

  • associated with physical pain may start

  • to resurface and it could give you the

  • opportunity to detox emotions or energy

  • that have been stored or blocked inside

  • within your body so that could be from

  • this life or from past life so when if

  • you start to experience pain but i would

  • do is continue to breathe hard and fast

  • with the awareness of the pain moving

  • through it and allowing to let it go now

  • when you're holding your breath you're

  • going to completely relax every muscle

  • in your body have awareness of all of

  • your skin and every bit of your body

  • from your head all the way down to your

  • toes

  • you can relax and feel your muscles and

  • your heart beating some say this even

  • causes the release of dmt similar to

  • taking ayahuasca but completely

  • naturally and healthy you can even relax

  • and feel the Kundalini energy move from

  • your root chakra all the way up to your

  • crown now I recommend you do this

  • between one and four sets 10 to 15

  • minutes each and you're going to start

  • to notice amazing things happening i

  • keep having an ability to hold your

  • breath between five and ten minutes in

  • between the sets

  • you're also going to feel a state of

  • mind as if you too

  • did ecstasy feeling love and connection

  • with all things which is why i like to

  • do this in conjunction with tantra

  • because it allows you to go to a deeper

  • level with your partner you're a couple

  • and you can see my meditations on my

  • meditations page for tantra they are

  • guided meditations for you to do with

  • your partner that allow you to have a

  • deeper intimacy and loving connection so

  • i highly recommend that and move your

  • body in whatever way it wants to just

  • continue to breathe and let it go

  • also if you want to take this a step

  • further when you're holding the breath

  • you can bring in divine light from above

  • to surround you

  • as a former protection and love and you

  • could also do that at the end as well as

  • a form of cleansing in detox you also

  • might notice that you have an

  • overwhelming feeling of emotions and

  • that could be loved for all around you

  • or release such as crying laughing or

  • some other form of release just allow

  • that to happen and be one with it now

  • when you do this i would highly

  • recommend you put in coconut oil around

  • your lips and inside your mouth because

  • it becomes very drawing you also might

  • experience a muscle cramp in your hands

  • or in your forearms and you might even

  • have this feeling like you're going to

  • die because you're doing something so

  • extreme with the breathing that is and

  • what I recommend is just breathing right

  • through all these I don't know of anyone

  • having any real problems from breathing

  • that i just mentioned but your mind

  • starts to play tricks on you when you

  • start moving to an altered state of

  • consciousness

  • now if you want to prepare for more the

  • extreme things like extreme cold weather

  • it's just like anything else you need to

  • prepare yourself on a mind-body and

  • spiritual level which is the same as

  • many of the other things that you do

  • this is why taking a 10-hour car trip or

  • plane trip often doesn't seem as bad as

  • a one hour trip that you weren't

  • prepared for because mentally you knew

  • that you were going to do this or why a

  • cold shower might be impossible to do

  • but going in an even colder ocean is

  • easy because you're prepared for that

  • and this also means preparing yourself

  • physically and energetically so that

  • means eating more nutritious foods as

  • well as doing meditations and moving the

  • chi within your body you can see my

  • videos for those but you're also

  • preparing yourself mentally so if you

  • can relax and breathe and see yourself

  • as an outside observer you're laying the

  • foundation for you to do something more
