Esther Hicks emphasizes conscious breathing. 3 in and 5 out. Many other people also find this important. I was just using Esther Hicks breathing pattern as an example.

My question has more to do with the concept of consciously altering breathing.

It is my understanding that it is 3 in and 5 out, that is what I am doing when listening to her on the Getting into the Vortex Meditation. This is also which I read on 1 of the websites explaining how to breathe for these particular meditations. I find those meditations quite uplifting and I am listening to all of them in order, but usually by the 3rd one I am asleep, but I know my subconscious mind is still listening to it all. And I don't wake up drowsy or with a headache on the next morning.

It uses Consciously Connected Breathing 15min 2/day. The Presence Process, Edition 2 can be downloaded here.

The three breaths in, five breaths out puts you into the frequency of the Vortex as long as you are allowing it to flow. You are also focusing on something specific which is putting you in the Now Moment and not the past or future. Just being in the Now in any situation will raise your vibrational frequency.

This particular guided meditation and others like it are just helpful tools that make it easier for individuals who may have a hard time focusing and allowing themselves to let go of negative thought patterns.

To let go of chronic negative thought patterns for even 15 minutes a day by being consciously aware of our breathing, can work wonders in getting you into a new habit of vibration and frequency.

Here is a video of Abraham explaining it themselves...

Thank you @Cory, twice :)

@Cory-Im using inner body awareness meditation a lot to bring me into the works well but it's putting me in touch with a lot of uncomfortable emotions I wasn't aware we're releasing them but they keep coming up.if I'm always dealing with uncomfortable emotions in the Now moment surely I'll be attracting more of the same.i don't know.what do you think Cory? Should I stick with it.i would appreciate your perspective of this.thanks:)

(13 Apr '12, 13:51) Satori

@Satori I've never had that kind of reaction towards an inner body type of meditation. For me personally, it only seems to make my body buzz with a higher vibration, and I have nothing but positive emotions coming to the surface. This could be a process similar to a detoxification of the mind and body in your case. Almost like a purging of the system that your chronic ego state doesn't want to let go of. You could try EFT when these emotions come up or even do the tapping in your mind while...

(13 Apr '12, 14:18) Cory

@Satori you say "I release and let it go, it's okay to let this go, let it go, let it go, let it go" or whatever releasing phrase is most comfortable to you. If you are having wondering thoughts while you are in the inner body meditative state, try to become the observer when they appear. Watch those thoughts as if you are a spectator in the crowd and they will not seem so personal anymore. Try to just feel your body and focus on your breathing and let go of any negative thought or emotion...

(13 Apr '12, 14:24) Cory

@Satori that comes up to the best of your ability. I'm not sure of the specifics of what is causing your uncomfortable emotions, so I can't say for sure what will help. For myself though, releasing the uncomfortable thoughts or emotions whenever they occur in my life and telling myself to let them go, has worked pretty well for me. Sometimes the releasing of resistance can feel uncomfortable because the body and mind are so accustomed to that negative vibration.

(13 Apr '12, 14:30) Cory

@Cory-thanks yes the Sedona method I could use.It works well for me.its the focus on releasing all the time that is troubling me.hopefully these emotions won't last for too long.i appreciate you getting back so fast Cory.thanks for the good advice.

(13 Apr '12, 14:31) Satori

@Stingray-@Cory- You guys are more familiar with Bashar than me:) I have noticed he makes a lot of references about the importance of the Breath, deep breathing and Breathing from the Center. Do you know if he has recommended any specific breathing techniques ? Thank you:)

(03 Sep '12, 05:37) Satori

@Satori I haven't come across any specific clip of a step by step breathing technique that I can recall. He does give little snippets here and there throughout the videos and audio clips though. I did watch a workshop called "Flipping the switch" recently and it had a holotope type meditation at the end. He started it out by briefly guiding the audience members with there breathing and mentioned a few times throughout the experience. I think it is very relaxing and beneficial though when you...

(05 Sep '12, 23:17) Cory

@Satori ...focus on your breathe throughout the meditation. Here is the link...

(05 Sep '12, 23:21) Cory

@Cory-Appreciate that and thanks you for the link:)

@Satori, @Cory - That link seems to be broken now, but I think there's another version here:

For me, there are many benefits to conscious control of breath. But the greatest benefit to me is to help me get in the Now and to quickly listen to my Source.

When my dogs are barking, they make so much noise that they cannot hear me until they take a breath.

When I am thinking about a myriad of things, past, present and future, I am not listening clearly. I can meditate and reach good levels, stopping the internal conversations, but this can take time.

If I focus on breathing, I can better hear God. "When thy eye is singled . . . ."

God is always answering us! We just need to listen better!

@Dollar Bill- This is a great answer and thanks for asking this question:)

(03 Sep '12, 05:52) Satori

yes it fits in nicely with the conscious control of breathing in rhythm with the heartbeat, a technique used in magic to enter into contact with the natural vibrations (rhythms) of the earth ... as you say "god" is always available to us :)

It depends on what your purpose is. In this case, they are using the breathing as part of a guided meditation. There are other breathing exercises for different purposes. My chiropractor gave me a breathing exercise where I breathe in for so many counts and out for so many counts while holding a certain thought. I can't remember the details, it has been several years now and I forgot about it until now.

I made up my own for strengthening the lungs. Breathe in for the count of 5, hold for the count of 5, exhale for the count of 5, breathe in for the count of 6, hold for the count of 6, exhale for the count of 6, breathe in for the count of 7, hold for the count of 7, exhale for the count of 7, etc... up to 10 for the hold and as far as you want/can, without getting dizzy or faint, for the inhale and exhale. For example: breathe in for the count of 23, hold for the count of 10, exhale for the count of 23, etc... An alternative it to exhale one more count than the prevous inhale. Breathe in for the count of 6, hold for the count of 6, exhale for the count of 7.

breathing is the only thing that we do subconsciously and consiously. we breath because it infuses us with the life force. and we can control the breath. thing of your breathing when you are excited it is quicker, or when your angry, there are breathing techniques that put you in the correct modality. if you want alot of action,you breath a certain way, if you want meditation, you breath a certain way.the chinese have developed breathing patterns to represent the five elements and the emotions associated with them. Breathing is the only function that is unconsciously done and can be regulated conciously.

I was listening to a channeled session with Wendy Kennedy recently and it seems that controlled breathing is important because it renews the energy that we are made up of at the vibrational level.

She did not expand any further but it makes sense that breathing is so important to us because it keeps renewing the vibrational energy that flows through us as human beings on this planet.

pink diamond, proper maintenance of the body takes more than only right breathing, but unachievable without it. there is much to read on different schools of 'thought' presuming how it is to be

(05 Sep '12, 21:48) fred

It is calming and relaxing. As our bodies are energy we find simple things like how we breadth, our posture, where we look all have an affect on our energy. Likewise our energy has an affect on our posture, our breathing, where we look etc...

Have you ever noticed when you are calm you are breathing in this relaxed pattern? When you are upset, highly stressed or under anxiety your breathing is shallow and fast. Everything is connected so everything influences everything.

We can instantly change our mood by changing our posture or breathing. Likewise our posture and breathing change when we change our mood.

In changing our breathing we are deliberately changing something about ourselves that is affecting the whole being.

The next time you feel upset, change your breathing by slowing it down in a more relaxed pattern. You can help by changing your posture, so that you are standing more upright, head held up high (Like the old great song "Hold your head up, hold your head up, hold your head up high.")

Everything being energy makes it so if we change frequency of one, we change all.

if you control your breath you can control your heart beat. and your stress makes your heart beat go up. so it is excercise to grasp those concept. nothing less nothing more.

the breath we breathe keeps us alive,

how well one breathes may allow
for the cells of the body to flourish.

to unconsciously allow a renegade rhythm,
when it isn't efficient feed your body,
should take serious review.

what is it that makes it
so convenient to let it happen
instead of thinking about it
