Yes, it's really remarkable!

I'm recommending the breathing to people – just like I'm "flat earthing" them ... and both these things are TRUTH. Very Happy

Has anyone seen the scene in the movie Doctor Strange where he uses his astral projection to read while he is sleeping?

Does anyone know of any material that teaches people how to do that?

EthericData2, I haven't seen the movie, but I looked into astral projection when I was in my teens and it's a very interesting topic. Astral projection/lucid dreaming is something that takes a lot of practice and consciousness. I can't find the forum I was using as a guide, but there's a lot of good info available from a duckduckgo.com search for "astral projection techniques"

Hay, I would like to learn more about Pranayama and to use these techniques every day but a lot of the videos are down. probably due to Erics youtube Chanel going down last week and he has not re uploaded these links, but is there another source page were i can find these videos? I do some beginners yoga in the morning with the sun rise in the summer but at sun set in the winter due to my work schedule and the time of day the sun rises in the winter. do you think changing the time of day EI breathing during the evenings will change the effects of Yoga or Pranayama? I would think like Yoga ive done in the evenings before bed, I will find it helps me sleep better and i will feel more rested, but laying still for 8 hours(asleep) after yoga sometimes makes you stiff so could the same happen with Pranayama?

The following is an instructional video showing how to do proper, effective Pranayama breathing, and how to use this practice to achieve states of deep meditation. To learn much more about the benefits and how to perform these techniques please also see the following video/article, "The Most Important Thing in Your Life": http://www.ericdubay.com/?p=1256

Note:  Wim Hof's mouth-breathing hyper-ventilation method is basically the opposite of proper, effective deep breathing.  It is simply the breath of fire Pranayam, which helps keep the body warm and boosts immunity, except Wim Hof tells people it doesn't matter whether you breath through your mouth or nose which is completely wrong.

Mouth-breathing is something to be completely avoided except in extreme circumstances where the nasal passages are blocked or you’re gasping from lack of oxygen.  Mouth breathing is directly responsible for the contraction of many contagious diseases like colds and catarrhal infections.  Experiments have been performed on hundreds of soldiers and sailors showing that those who slept with their mouths open were much more likely to fall ill and contract contagious diseases than those who breathed properly through their nostrils.  During one of the Navy experiments a smallpox epidemic broke out resulting in many deaths among the mouth-breathers, yet not a single nose-breather suffered.

“The organs of respiration have their only protective apparatus, filter, or dust-catcher, in the nostrils.  When the breath is taken through the mouth, there is nothing from mouth to lungs to strain the air, or to catch the dust and other foreign matter in the air.  Moreover, such incorrect breathing admits cold air to the organs,
thereby injuring them.  Inflammation of the respiratory organs often results from the inhalation of cold air through the mouth.  The man who breathes through the mouth at night, always awakens with a parched feeling in the mouth and a dryness in the throat.  He is violating one of nature’s laws, and is sowing the seeds of disease.  On the other hand, the nostrils and nasal passages show evidence of the careful design of nature in this respect.  The nostrils are two narrow, tortuous channels, containing numerous bristly hairs which serve the purpose of a filter or sieve to strain the air of its impurities, etc., which are expelled when the breath is exhaled.  Not only do the nostrils serve this important purpose, but they also perform an important function in warming the air inhaled.  The long narrow winding nostrils are filled with warm mucous membrane, which coming in contact with the inhaled air warms it so that it can do no damage to the delicate organs of the throat, or to the lungs.”  -Yogi Ramacharaka, “The Science of Breath”

Sit still and meditate with me for a moment. What does that even mean, "sit still?" How could you ever sit still on a globe spinning 1,000mph around its axis, 67,000mph around the Sun, 500,000mph around the galaxy and millions more miles per hour through the universe? Do we feel absolute stillness because we are so used to spinning around millions upon millions of miles per hour, or do we feel motionless because we are motionless?

If you are a dedicated yogi, you are probably aware of the some of the benefits of focus and attention daily meditation brings your other activities throughout the day. A number of studies have linked meditation practice to differences in cortical thickness or density of gray matter.

Neuroplasticity, also known as brain plasticity and neural plasticity, is the ability of the brain to change throughout an individual's life, e.g., brain activity associated with a given function can be transferred to a different location, the proportion of grey matter can change, and synapses may strengthen or weaken over time.

John J. Ratey, M.D. is associate clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.In 2001 he published the book 'A User's Guide to the Brain', in which he describes the human brain as a flexible muscle, which works on a "use it or lose it" basis. He is the author of 'Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain (2008), which describes the positive benefits that exercise can have for learning and for people with anxiety, depression and ADHD.' This guy has shown that in those who not only exercise, but especially those who do sustained intervals of high stress sprinting (75% to maximum sprint) release all kinds of the best feel good hormones making you feel like you just took “a little bit of Prozac, and a little bit of Ritalin”. Not only that, if you combine this with learning and a lifelong sustained effort to better yourself, you will actually get smarter and there is seemingly no limit. Your depression will go away. You turn on the part of the brain that makes us most human. Combine this knowledge of the material with knowledge of the transcendental and take action.

I found out about this a few years back and have been doing the high intensity interval sprints mixed in with my daily jog. My depression has completely gone and my thought are clear. Makes yoga afterwards fucking amazing. You might ask, "how then can we have dumb jocks?". Very good question. It is because although these people are exercising, they are not intellectually challenging themselves daily.

On the topic of mouthbreathing and how bad it is i wanted to add that people unaware whove been doing it for years should perform mindfullness throughout the day of slow nose breathing, trying to increase the exhalation time while keeping the inhalation time same This helps train the brain to nosebreathe at night. Also using some tape such as leukosilk across the mouth at nights is useful. Nose breathing and meditation actually build up levels of CO2 to a healthy level. Just a few minutes of mouthbreathing can lower CO2 levels too much. If the nose is blocked there are methods such as Buteyko to unblock it in minutes especially if practiced at first signs of nasal congestion.

Back to yoga and stretching there were some studies showing shrinkage of tumours whilst stretching and the like.
