The right way to practice breathing meditation
« on: June 13, 2019, 01:30:53 PM »

Hello,
Is it possible that a wrong practicing of the breath meditation could cause headaches, or create tinnitus ?


Thanks
Adam

Hi Adam,

have you seen Dr Joe's FAQ video on this topic?
It was very helpful to me and might help you too!

I did end up with tinnitus and extreme head pressure (which resulted in headache for about a month) after the breath meditation. Please proceed with caution.

Thank you for your responses.

Yes,I have seen this video several times, and will probably watch is again.
It does not speak yet about the right effort.
How can I know if I am using the intrinsic muscles in the right effort,mor if I contract too much etc.

So can anybody advise on practicing the breath meditation with caution, or in a progressive way?


I would really appreciate advises of experienced breath meditator, so I can proceed with this practice in the right way and keep on profiting from the positive consequences I started to feel.

Adam.

One of the live streams of an advanced workshop was on the breath: DO NOT tighten anything that is above where your rib cage starts, not your throat, or pushing like a bowel movement or tightening your chest, or trying to making your head explode... as Dr Joe instructed, “No purple pushing!”

You are tightening the muscles that keep you from wetting and dirtying your pants, then drawing your belly button to your spine, then contracting the muscles that help you keep you balance, so lean into and  then against a door jamb
If you do not recognize which balancing muscles of your sides and obliques are involved.

I have yet to experience a “brain gasm” from doing the breath, but I am not seeking a mystical experience, and also think calcification of my Pineal gland  from decades of fluoridated water may be the cause. How ever I do do the breath when a meditation instructs, and actively move the energy as instructed, seeing the torus and reverse torus. It does put me in a good place to get maximum benefit from the remainder of the meditation.

Adam,
Same thing happened to me plus my ribs were hurting and i could not exercise for several days. It was hard to breath too... but it only happened when i attempted 3 meditations in one day, usually doing one or two does not have any side effects.
