In this article, we explain the benefits of conscious breathing and the art of purifying the 23000 breaths of the day. You will learn the key conscious breathing techniques like mindful breathing, yoga breathing and diaphragmatic breathing.
Breathing is normally an automatic process. It is subconsciously controlled by the respiratory center at the base of the brain, in the brain stem. This part of the brain controls the basic breathing mechanisms that keep us alive, and maintain our heartbeats.
In normal breathing, you don’t have to think about each step of your breath. Your brain automatically adjusts your breathing steps, just as your brain will occasionally insert a sigh when you need more oxygen.
We still breathe when we are unconscious, or asleep. People can also control their breathing when they wish, for example during speech, singing, or voluntary breathing exercises. Researchers observed that, breathing mindfully slower and deeper improves arterial oxygenation, cardiac output, and pulmonary gas-exchange efficiency.Read more ..
Day 10: Brainwaves and the Power of Manifestation in The River of Life
Manifestation starts when you have trust and believe in yourself. We are moving as a flowing energy in the unchanging consciousness. Our interactions in the world are just an exchange of energy. This energy system is responsible for making the reality before us. The manifestation occurs not just on a physical level but also on an emotional, mental and spiritual level as well.
During meditation your brainwaves change from Beta to Alpha, and, ultimately to Theta waves. In the alpha sate your brain sends lower-frequency brain waves of your intentions into the quantum field of all possibilities. During these stages of meditations, your awareness is very important for manifestation.
Through attention we make reality. Attention is our ability to dynamically alter the origin and the route of the flow of information. Generally, attention can be described as purely an overall level of alertness or ability to engage with surroundings and inner feelings and experiences. The quantum attention functions for consciousness has six groups of attentions: spatial, temporal, sensory, inner feelings, perception, and deep oneness.Read more ..

Time Quantum Physics Brain and the Eternity
How is time related to quantum physics, brain, beauty, spirituality and eternity? How time-symmetry, time-reversal plays their roles in quantum physics, 114 chakra system and deep spirituality? These are two questions I want to address today.
"Beauty is the moment when time vanishes. Beauty is the space where eternity arises." -- Amit Ray
1. What is the reality of time?
Time is not a philosophy - it is a physics - it is not even a physics - it is the doorway to the breath, beauty and eternity. Some physicist says time is an illusion. Some mathematician says time is just a geometrical structure. Hence, it varies from person to person. In deep meditation, one of our objectives is to transcend the limits of time, so that we can touch the reality.
Chakras are the inner doorways to reach the eternity. KAla Chakra in our brain is one of the vital chakras in our 114 chakra system, to transcend the limits of the time. Similarly, Viraja nadi in our brain is one of the key energy channels in our 72000 nadi system to transcend the boundaries of the time.
Heart Chakra Healing: Everything you Need to Know
Heart chakra is also known as green chakra, 4th chakra or Anahata chakra. The heart chakra is located at the center of the spine at heart level. It works as the individual’s center of compassion, empathy, love, joy, and forgiveness.
When your heart chakra is properly active and open, your life energy can bring a positive transformation in your life and in many lives.
In human body there are 114 chakras. The seven chakras are the primary energy centers of the body. The heart chakra is at the center of all the 114 chakras.
You've probably heard people talk about "unblocking the heart chakra", which refers to the idea of the expansion of the heart energy.
How Sanjivani Vidya and Ayurveda can Boost your Immunity and Spirituality
Mystery Ayurveda and Sanjivani Vidya
Sri Amit Ray talks about Sanjivani Vidya, Urja Vidya and Ayurveda to enhance your immunity, healing power and spirituality. The eleven key immunity chakras and eleven key healing herbs are discussed. This article is for the students, who have attended the Ray 114 Chakra meditation course.
Sanjivani Vidya gives huge spiritual energy for deep meditation. Sanjivani Vidya is vital for getting up early in the morning especially at 3:45 AM and for deep ishvara pranidhana - realizing the supreme truth. Urja Vidya is necessary for developing concentration, patience, mental clarity, and creativity. Both of them are associated with immunity and mental strength.
Ayurved and Sanjivani Vidya
In ancient oral tradition of Ray Ayurveda, there are seven protocols to improve your immunity, health and spirituality. These seven Ayurveda protocols are the seven ways to study the herbs, human body system, the 114 chakras and 72000 nadis, and the diseases. Among these seven Ayurveda protocols, the following three protocols are very important for immunity, health and healing.
The first one is the traditional vata-pitta-kapha protocol (Dhatu Vidya). The other two vital protocols are Sanjivani pathway protocol (Sanjivani Vidya), and the Urja pathway protocol (Urja Vidya). Today, I will discuss mainly the Sanjivani pathway protocol and the Urja pathway protocols, which are studied to improve immunity in inline with the 114 chakras in human body.Read more ..
Overcoming the Blind Spots: Leadership from Inner Being
Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots
Sri Amit Ray explains the concept of overcoming leadership blind spots from inner being. He also describes how to overcome the blind spots in leadership and decision making processes.
Leadership begins with a simple human gesture and that is to inspire others, and to inspire others you must feel integrated, harmonious and whole. When you are disconnected with your Inner Being, you don't feel solid and whole in yourself. When you are connected with your Inner Being, you feel integrated, harmonious and whole.
Here, by inner dimensions I mean inner strength, inner vision - the expanded consciousness beyond the small ego which considers him or her self separate from the rest. On the Physical body level we have emotional blockages. When you are connected with your Inner Being, you feel integrated, harmonious and whole. When you operate from your Inner Being you can overcome the mundane emotional blockages that drags you down. Through leadership chakra meditations, mindfulness and positive mindset we can get connection with our Inner Being. Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King are the examples of leadership from Inner Being.
Authentic Leadership and Inner Dimensions:
We can consistently inspire others when we are authentic - authentic to ourselves and authentic to others. Authenticity is the single most important principle of leadership. Authenticity comes from our deeper inner dimensions. It comes from our core values, principles, and life experiences.
To be a good leader you must be authentic to your current state of development as well as to your potential state of development. In cryptography, authenticity means messages that received by A are actually sent by B - there is no noise, error or loss of information. In leadership, authenticity means what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony. There should not be any contradiction, confusion or doubt. Today's best leaders are authentic leaders. They are connected with their inner being, which guides them in their daily actions and enables them to earn the trust of their subordinates, peers, and shareholders.Read more ..
Heart Rate Variability with Om Meditation and Chanting
Stress Relief and Heart Rate Variability with Om Meditation
Sri Amit Ray explains how Om meditation and Om chanting is related to heart rate variability and stress relief.
Your heart rate is constantly changing to meet various requirements of your body and mind. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) measures how your heart rate varies over time. Generally, heart rate variability increases during relaxation and recovering activities and decreases during stress and anxiety. HRV reflects the changes in the interval between heartbeats (R wave) over time. HRV is NOT the same as plain old heart rate (HR). It’s not the “beats per minute” number most of us are familiar with.
Broadly speaking there are seven types of Om meditation. The impact of these meditations on stress level varies from person to person. HRV measurement just after different Om meditations can help you to assess the impact of your personalized meditation techniques on stress relief. The key for effective Om chanting is activating the Vayapini Nadi and the Kurma Nadi. Our studies strongly suggests that Vayapini Om chanting increases HRV and may be linked to the activation of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex regions of the brain.
How Om Chanting Can Help You to Discover the Kingdom of God Within You
Om Chanting for Discovering the Kingdom of God Within You
Sri Amit Ray talks about accessing the kingdom of God that is within you, in the light of Om chanting and Om meditation.
The kingdom of God is a metaphor - metaphor of transformation into more creative, more conscious, more caring, loving and fulfilling life with the fellow beings.

Om chanting and Om meditation has tremendous power to activate these inner powers. Om chanting has several benefits and it is an art - a systematic step by step process.
True kingdom is the deep feelings of love with the wholeness or fullness of the world. This kingdom was meant not to be taught, but to be self-discovered. It is about realizing and unfolding our best inner qualities for the service of the humanity and the environment where we live. The essence of the kingdom is transformation that would happen inside us and within the world where we live. Rather than being imposed from the outside, it all about remaking ourselves for betterment from the inside. God will bring heaven to earth only when our love for all beings are complete and genuine.
Om meditations can make you more focused, caring, strong, and decisive. It can give you strong inner strength, which inspire people to follow you because you will become more courageous, confident, clear minded, big hearted, and big thinker.

Life is a dynamics of these two types of emotions. How to find the higher purpose and true meanings of life in the midst of these negative turmoils of life is the eternal question.
Seven Scientific Benefits of Om Chanting
Seven Scientific Benefits of Om Chanting
Here, Sri Amit Ray explains the scientific aspects of om chanting benefits.
Om chanting is a disciplined and flexible process to remove tension, anxiety, fear, depressions, and negativity from life. It can bring positivity to your life like courage, focus, concentration, happiness, and joy, effortlessly. It can improve your state (short term) as well as trait (long term) health, happiness, joy and well-being.
Om chanting is a series of step-by-step process. It is a scientific art but it should be learnt properly to get its benefits. Systematic guided Om chanting can change your emotional reactions and responses to external stimuli and internal experiences in a positive way. It can enhance your efficiency, calmness, tranquility, and mental clarity.
Dr. Ray explains how low frequency Om chanting can reduce our daily stress, strain, anxiety and tensions. Om chanting is effective for stress management. Under various pressure conditions such as before examination, before public speaking, before important sports events and during critical challenges of life Om chanting can enhance confidence and eliminate stress and anxiety. Om chanting improves the connections between the amygdala and prefrontal cortex, which is the key component for relaxation, stress control and better decision making.
Low frequency seven step deep Om chanting increases gamma wave in the brain. The gamma brain waves are known as “feeling of blessings”. The seven step deep Om chanting and meditation is supposed to be practiced for 20 minutes, two times per day. Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin and Endorphins are the four key hormones generated in the body during low frequency Om meditation and these four hormones have huge impact on regulating both state anxiety as well as trait anxiety.
