Pranayama Method Pranayama means the Extension of Prana, however this is something different here. Prana relates also to mind, the psychic aspect and how its united with consciousness. Some of the secretive techniques of using pranayama in the east that are taught to initiates have to do with directing prana in the sense of expanding ones energy field to perform functions that relate to the basis of telepathic and telekinetic functions. Also one situation I have noticed many times is people mentioning they are doing high reps. The power of pranayama is not in high reps its in the Kumbhaka which means the retention of the length of the hold hence also the extension of prana. With this remember the texts always warn do not stress its only to be comfortable on the hold. There is a kriya in yoga that involves meditation on the end of the nose to activate the third eye. However in yoga with pranayama there is the method if one focuses on one nostril they can open this and direct all their breath into that one nostril at will. The meditation with breathing as such is to activate and purify the either sun or moon nadi its connected to while directing power. Each nostril connects to one of the hemispheres of the brain.The situation is however in yoga with the pranayama the actual method of focusing on the end on the nose is in all reality probably corrupted from a method that connects to the nostril method. The space of the bottom part of the nose between the nostrils is connected to the Sushumna nadi which is between the sun and moon nadi's the nostrils. There is a rare method of placing ones focus on this part when meditating it opens both nostrils fully and directs the prana into the Sushumna nadi. This technique activates the third eye and pineal gland drastically. Its used for mediation absorption. It also with use creates a sense of bliss and well being and activates power.This technique is rare because its powerful. It was mainly kept secret. One can also use a mantra on the in and out breath with this as a form of void meditation. Such as Sat on the in breath and Nam on the out breath. Which is a method in Kundalini Yoga.
