The Sacred Breath – An Awareness Meditation

The breath is one of the most important, sacred and mysterious functions within the human body. Spiritual teachings in every tradition, religion and culture have honored the breath as the primary source of human life. Entire systems of knowledge and practice have develop around the breath.

Yogis in India created pranayama, advanced techniques that use breath control to increase and purify the human prana energy system. Monks and martial artists in China use breath to balance the body’s elemental energies, increase chi (life force energy) and purify the acupuncture meridians. In Tibet, the Buddhist monks use use the breath in meditation, chanting, and energy-increased techniques. Priests and monks in European Christianity use the breath to chant sacred sounds in spiritual worship and healing. Throughout Africa and Australia, North American and South America, the indigenous cultures honor the breath as a sacred process of life, a communion with the Creator.

In this Higher Self meditation and teaching, you are led on a 40 minute peaceful guided meditation that teaches you how to use your breath to stay in present moment awareness. Learn how to use the breath to calm and quiet your mind, balance and heal your emotions, and relax and de-stress your body. Learn how the breath is the carrier of life force energy (prana, chi, ki) within you. By correctly meditating with your breath, you can enter into meditative states of transcendental awareness and ecstasy, called Samadhi and Enlightenment.

This is a very relaxing and peaceful meditation that will help you to recognize the sacredness of your breath as a primary tool for spiritual awakening.

Many blessings and much Love!

    this is just what i needed to supplement the last few videos. I was getting stuck in narrow perspectives and neglecting my breath.

  2. Brynn says:

    This was a powerful meditation, I could hardly believe how slow and peaceful my breath became. I’ve listened to it 4 times now and pick up something a little different each time. I have a new awareness on the energy body through experience now (and now much more curious about).
    Thank you:)

  3. Colin says:

    Lincoln, your forum has been spammed.

  4. Lincoln says:

    Thank you Colin. I removed the spam postings.

  5. Lincoln says:

    That is great Brynn! When the mind calms down, the awareness can become sensitive to the energy system. The best way to learn about the energy system is to feel it directly. Be careful not to get too many concepts in your mind about what the experience should be, what each chakra should do, etc. Conceptual knowledge can block direct experience. The less we form expectations about what to find, the more accurate our experience will be. A little information is helpful, but too much is limiting.

    You can try some of these videos:

    Enjoy! Namaste.

  6. Colin says:

    I have a question or a topic suggestion. Is it wise to be fearless in this world? is it a good idea?

  7. Colin says:

    Well actually now that I think about it I see that it is more of a moment to moment question. I see more clearly now I don’t need any answers. I also see that there are levels of fear and that you don’t have to be extremely afraid to avoid danger. And of course recognizing projections and the here now moment for what they are and not fearing in response to illusions.

  8. Lincoln says:

    Fear is the emotional form of resistance to what is happening in the present moment. Fear can be the resistance to activities of the mind (thoughts, imaginings, dreams, memories, etc) or the physical body and its environment. (predators, scarcity, injury, pain, etc).

    Trust in Life and God will reduce and even fully eliminate fear.

  9. Colin says:

    Yesterday I was fasting and just laying down contemplating and realized that I was in a subtle state of fear and in a moment of insight I realized what was making me afraid and saw how it was unnecessary . I then moved into a state of empowered fearlessness and felt like I could overcome any fear any time. It was a wonderful moment because fear has limited me in numerous ways, but then I started to think well maybe this isn’t such a good idea. Maybe I’ll find my self in situations where fear would stop me from doing something stupid. And I could not come to a clear conclusion on that inquiry and ended up losing my state of fearlessness and the insight that led me there. I’ll find my way back

    I also see that accepting responsibility and being fully aware of your actions are key. That you don’t need fear to govern you.

  10. Lincoln says:

    When we fast, our body is releasing unnecessary and often toxic chemicals. Sometimes the release of toxins causes fear in our minds to arise. Experiencing various emotions with no apparent reason is common when fasting and detoxing. The reason is the toxic release.

    You can learn a lot about fasting in this book >

    The mind can find a reason to uphold nearly any idea. The mind’s version of reality is very flexible and always self-serving.

    Yes, fear (at times) does serve a survival purpose. However there does come a point in spiritual evolution where all fear is removed because it is no longer needed. With increased knowledge you can better decide which behaviors serve you and which do not – not from a place of subconsciously driven emotions (animal instincts) but from a place of intelligent conscious reason.

  11. Brynn says:

    Thanks, I just watched all these again. I think I had watched most of them before, but now I have a different perspective due to experience (it changes things watching them another time around). Wonderful guidance!

  12. Jah says:

    Thank you, Lincoln. I could feel the energy moving to different parts of my body and chakras finally resting in the brain stem. Then my breath became automatic, rhythmic. My goal is to stay in heart-breath awareness always, especially when I’m driving the car. 🙂

  13. Lincoln says:

    Excellent Jah. I am very happy for you. The more that you practice, the more your awareness will expand and your energy system develop. You are doing great work.
