Power of Conscious Breathing

Power of Conscious 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.

The power of manifestation - Amit Ray Quotes

Day 10: Brainwaves and the Power of Manifestation in The River of Life

“The river of life is full with possibilities and opportunities, the moment you put your full attention the flower blossom.” — Amit Ray

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.

 
The river of life is full with possibilities - Amit Ray Qotes

The river of life is full with possibilities

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 »Day 10: Brainwaves and the Power of Manifestation in The River of Life

Prayer for Healing and Connecting with the Higher Self

“Perfect prayer does not consist in many words, silent remembering and pure intention raises the heart to that supreme Power.” — Amit Ray

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.

Time Quantum Physics Brain Enlightenment and the Eternity

“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.

Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots

Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots

Sri Amit Ray  explains the concept of leadership 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 meditation, 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.

Leadership from Inner Being By Sri Amit Ray

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 »Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots

Impact of Om Chanting Om Meditation on Brain and Heart - Amit Ray

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.
