Meditation: Reinvent Your Reality
Soma Breath, a holistic, rhythmic breathwork system that integrates eastern practices of ancient pranayama of India with trypnaural brainwave music and visualization techniques, makes breathing fun, modern, and engaging to the west. Its incorporation of diaphragmatic breathing with the beat of the Music allows oneself to be set free and on a journey to our higher selves.
Studies show that Soma Breath scientifically altered brain wave activities of those comparable to psychedelics used by psychiatrists to treat anxiety and depression. What’s more, Soma Breath facilitates breathwork through the nasal passage. Breathing through your nasal passage, slow and intentionally will not only activate the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest), facilitate efficient gas exchange in the lungs, improve cardiovascular health by regulating heart rate variability (HRV), enhance the mind-body connection with enhanced self-regulation through the activation of the vagus nerve, lower blood pressure, facilitate healthy levels of nitric oxide, and activate cellular repair. What’s more fascinating, breathwork meditations techniques also facilitate the release of trauma from the body. The body response to trauma is a complex interplay of neurobiology, genetics, and environmental factors. Traumatic experiences dysregulate the stress response system, leading to a cascade of physiological changes that impact our overall well-being.
Meditation is not simply a mindfulness practice or a cliché overused term. Meditation is a way of life. When we meditate, we detach from the physical body. We activate an energy flow (prana, chi, Ruach, Ki, Lung) to penetrate our being to reach our heart center.
We energize our sixth sense as we were robbed of it at a very young age. Due to the destruction of the world, negative biased media, generational trauma, and cultural man-made barriers, we have lost control of our authentic, trauma-free selves.
Meditation facilitates our innate human desire for control, by looking within our inner self. It enables one to release the shackles of imprisonment to the outer world and empowers oneself to pave a path of happiness, abundance, and fulfillment by owning our emotional responses to both positive and negative Stimuli.
Meditation can give one the humility to seek the truth of self from within and create an open flow to receive the right tools necessary for fulfillment.
The question is then, how do we get there? How do we adapt the ancient pranayama practices of India to resonate with modern society? How do we avoid getting too spiritually entrenched into teachings and losing our audience? Our goals are the same. They just need to be delivered in a method that is easy to digest, fun, engaging, and resonates with western society.
Bringing ancient methods to the masses requires the ability to bridge the gap between eastern techniques and modern healthcare, free of any affiliation to religion, race, culture, or ethnicity. There is no right or wrong answer here. It is one’s ability to own their health, free of judgment and free of the rules that dictate the outside world.
