Breathing Exercise from
The Fruits of The Tree of Life
Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

Respiration is of paramount importance to anyone who aspires to an active spiritual life, so you should make sure that your day's activities allow you to do your breathing exercises in the morning, on an empty stomach.

The breathing exercise is very simple:

1. Begin by closing your left nostril and breathing in deeply through the right nostril, while you count to four.
2. Hold your breath to the count of sixteen,
3. Close your right nostril and breath out through the left nostril to the count of eight.


Then begin again, starting with the right nostril closed.

4. Breath in through the left nostril to the count of four,
5. Hold you breath to the count of sixteen.
6. Breath out through the right nostril to the count of eight.

Do this six times for each nostril.

Once the exercise has become easy for you, you can double the time of each movement, counting eight, thirty-two and sixteen. But I don't advise you to go any further than that. Breathing can reveal great mysteries to you, but only if you accompany it with some mental work. As you breath out, think that you are expanding to the very outer limits of the universe and then, as you breath in again, picture yourself contracting and withdrawing into yourself, into your ego, into that imperceptible point at the centre of an infinite circle. Again you expand, and again you contract … As you do this, you will begin to discover the ebb and flow which is the key to all the rhythms of the universe and, when you become conscious of this movement within your own being, you begin to enter into the harmony of the cosmos and establish a relationship of exchange between yourself and the universe. As you breath in, you inhale elements from space and, as you breath out, you project into space something of your own heart and soul.
