"Meditation simple. We complicate it"  J. Krishnamurti

#210. Meditation Enhancement tm  (including the Optimal Breathing Kit plus customized product options in the red bordered box)

More for the accomplished meditatator. Identical to Deepest Calm #200 with the actual exercises having much less emphasis on handling anxiety
. Includes the Optimal Breathing Kit plus customized product options in the red bordered box)

Many meditators wish to strengthen their meditation. This program should greatly aid that.

Breathing related factors that relate to meditation are:

  • Make breathing easier and effortlessly deeper
  • Reduce or eliminate chest breathing
  • Deepen relaxation
  • Conquer anxiety, panic, hyperventilation
  • Reduce or eliminate the remaining effects of physical or emotional trauma.
  • Help manage harmful stress
  • Improve multiple breathing restrictions per test question G of the breathing tests.
  • A post exercise increase in alpha wave strength in the occipital and parietal regions of the brain.
  • Go deeper into the "therapeutic zone" and reach as low as 4-5 breaths per minute
  • An aid in self hypnosis or suggestion
  • Be more in touch with one's quiet inner self
  • Strengthen the slower more advanced states of consciousness
  • Eliciting the relaxation and healing response

Improve specific aspects of:

  • Anxiety or panic attacks "To the degree one's that one's choices become constrained by a need for anxiety avoidance, one's life shrinks". Gordon Livingston MD, Too Soon Old, Too Late Smart
  • Rapid heartbeat, racing heartbeat, and heart palpitations
  • Shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, shallow breathing, and hyperventilation
  • High blood pressure The FDA has acknowledged breathing exercises for being effecting in reducing blood pressure and we approach this from a breathing development perspective to improve the odds of success.
  • Excessive sweating
  • Racing thoughts
  • Excessive negative thoughts
  • Excessive what-if thoughts
  • Assuming the worst would happen
  • Constant, intense fear
  • Avoiding doing things or even thinking about things that make one feel anxious (such as fear of driving, fear of flying in a plane, fear of the workplace, fear of social situations, just to name a few of the MANY. It is most often not the situation but how the way you breathe that influences the way you respond to it.
  • Terrifying flashbacks of traumatic childhood events.
  • Repeatedly checking the clock and other compulsive habits
  • Hiding our feelings from others because we thought something was inherently "wrong" with us
  • Agoraphobia and most other phobias
  • Feeling faint, dizzy, lightheaded, blurred vision, and spinning sensations
  • Numbness, feeling like you can't move, "jelly legs," and are paralyzed
  • Feeling suffocated, smothered, and choking sensations
  • Stomach-related problems (such as nausea, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, constipation, heartburn, indigestion, "butterflies," and other stomach upset)
  • Feeling trapped, an intense desire to escape, and a lack of control
  • Headaches or pressure around the head and eyes
  • Trembling, spasms, cramps, muscle tension, stiffness, pain, and aches
  • Dry throat, thirstiness, and difficulty swallowing
  • Difficulty concentrating and confusion
  • Feeling like you're disconnected or disoriented, feelings of unreality
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Hypochondria
  • Narrowed mental focus
  • Sensitivity to light and noise
  • Feeling like others are looking at you, judging you, criticizing you, and feeling intensely embarrassed
  • Hot flashes
  • Insomnia
  • The Superman Syndrome 
  • Weight loss?

*This way of breathing reduces stress. Most of us know that excessive stress produces excessive cortisol – a powerful stress hormone – which in excess can deplete the body’s protein stores and affect muscles, bones and especially lower your energy.

"until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness........"   ......."the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred.   A whole stream of events issues from the decision......"

Question from a previous customer. "It seems there is a breathing strap that comes in the basic breathing kit, however, it is recommended to buy another strap. Can you comment on this? "
Mike's answer.  The 12 foot one that comes with the 176 VIDEO is for making rapid change in breathing volume and balance. The BVS is gentle and you sleep with or wear it during the day or both. It holds the volume and balance change to better integrate that change during waking activities and sleep.  Make the change with the 12 footer and hold it to let the "cement settle" or the body to reshape into homeostasis.
If you do not want the BVS then get the Breathing Klit by itself.

An old grandfather said to his grandson who came in to him with anger at a friend who had done him an injustice, "Let me tell you a story:"

"I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those who have taken so much with no sorrow for what they do; but hate wears you down and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking a poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times."

He continued, "It is as if there are two wolves inside me; one is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way. But...the other wolf... Ah!

The littlest thing will send him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all of the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is helpless anger, for his anger will change nothing."

"Sometimes it is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit."

The boy looked intently into his grandfather's eyes and asked, "Which one wins, Grandfather?"

The grandfather smiled and quietly said, "The one I feed."

I facilitated a breathing/stress management workshop at a county jail in California and integrated my world class collection of Himalayan "singing bowls" (see Breathing Exercise1 ) .   Towards the end of the workshop an inmate told me that he felt very much at peace. It was foreign to him, and he wanted to understand more about the significance of how he felt. I told him that if he felt at peace he would naturally choose activities and strategies that stemmed from or supported that experience. If he felt anxiety, fear and or agitation he might well choose activities and responses that more resembled anger and  defensiveness, and that the choice was his. He seemed much relieved and with an emphatic but quiet "thank you", he smiled and quietly sat down. more about

Dear Mike: Just a quick note to let you know that after one week on your program, I have stopped taking my High Blood Pressure medications! Your program seemed to “click” with me. I am easily breathing at 3.5 breaths per minute. When I started I was breathing 12 times per minute. Thanks for your help and have a great day, Skip W

Dear Mike:
I've been making a good effort at breathing correctly and doing your exercises. I went to donate blood at the Red Cross and she asked me if I was an athlete (I'm healthy but not super athletic). She told me that my blood pressure was at an athletic low.  Mary W.

I want to thank you for a great dvd and some great exercises.  I just started working with your dvd's and I just love the breath you get at the reflex.   Our fight or flight system does so much damage to us emotionally, physically, spiritually, etc and when you breath right you
have better control over when it kicks in and you can minimize the suffering involved with the stress chemicals.  It is important of course but it takes over way too much in our world.  We suffer so much due to our survival instincts that want to keep us alive and send the stress chemicals
running through our system and send off the alarms bells for even the simplest stuff.   The more we learn how to operate our machine (the body) the happier and healthier we will be.  The problem with life on planet earth is we are not given instructions manuals on how to operate what we have be given so we learn by following others who are most often not doing things optimally.  I am grateful to have found your website and dvd.
I am currently taking vocal lessons and when I spoke to Kim she said you also coach in that area as well.    I know that breathing is so important to singing.   What do you charge for your private sessions ?
Thanks so much. I look forward to practicing more of your routines and take more of my life back from the Fight or Flight mechanism. Roy K.

Things are going well, blood pressure has already started to fall, and I can notice two things right now:  greater volume of air, and ease of breathing.....I've worn the BVS for the last three days (during waking hours, 5 am to about 7 or 8 pm) but I really haven't been able to wear it at night, that is very difficult for me.....but I will keep trying.  I use a soft undergarment, and I don't let it restrict me too much, but I'm used to wearing nothing but underwear to bed, with no covers, and nothing to restrict my movements......Sam M.

Mike –
Thx for the e-mail.  I will take a look later today.  My wife and I spent the week before Christmas at the Deepak Chopra Wellness Center in La Jolla.  Take away the “wrapping” and its basically spending time with ones self daily breathing properly (meditation).  The world is wonderfully simply if we let it be.  And now back to the rat race and 62 un-opened e-mails.  May God continue to bless the essential work you do.  Best regards,  Dan York
