    Default Breatharianism, and living on Prana: a how-to guide

    As a breatharian at age 37 there was no need to ever eat again
    WOW and thanks for your whole post.

    Please say more!
    Bill and Limor, I am happy to provide more information for you. I purposely did not do so earlier because this thread is about cleansing, not living on prana. I am happy to tell you of my personal experience.

    About me: I took a course from the Berkeley Psychic Institute in August of 1986 in meditation. They taught a method which involved a few simple but profound steps. I'm going to write these here because, so many aware people on the forum could do this with ease. I think meditation was an important part of my process:

    1) Sit in a straight backed chair with your hands resting on your thighs, palms facing up
    2) Create a grounding chord linking you to the center of the earth
    3) Now bring the earth energy up through the balls of your feet, up your legs, and when it arrives at the 1st chakra allow it to fall down your grounding chord like water. So now you have an upside down "U" of energy going up through your legs and down your grounding chord.
    4) From your crown reach up into the 'universe' with your awareness and find a frequency of 'cosmic' energy you like and invite it down through your crown, into your spine, and on downwards, finally exiting your grounding chord. This should run down the 'back channel' of your microcosmic orbit.
    5) When this cosmic flow is strong, begin to mix it with the earth energy in an 80/20 ratio and bring this up the front channel of your microcosmic orbit. Each time it reaches a chakra as it travels upwards, hold your attention on that chakra until it begins to spin and balance.

    This energy will travel upwards in the front channel of the body, and when it reaches the crown it will exit and fountain out the top of the head, creating a shower of energy which cleans your outer auric field. You will also find the energy running from the heart chakra down through the arms and exiting your upturned palms in small fountains. Here is a link to a diagram of this meditation: http://projectavalon.net/forum4/show...l=1#post356189

    This type of meditation was referred to as 'running your energy'. It reverses the normal course of the microcosmic orbit. At at the end of a 30 minute meditation you will feel really clean and balanced inside as these channels open up flow without blockage.

    Back to my story: After doing this for 90 days, I began to really enjoy it, and my meditations became longer and longer. One evening I sat for 6 hours doing this, and when I opened my eyes ... there was only light. I thought I had gone blind, however within 15-30 minutes I began to see vague shapes of the 3d world which would flicker in the light before vanishing again. (According to some things I have read, it is likely my 3rd eye had opened fully.) There was a lot of trauma and drama with this, because I saw all of creation, and all of the emptiness of it at the same time. Fitting back into 3d reality, when everything I saw kept vanishing within a few seconds, was very difficult for me. This state of affairs began to slowly return to the old 'normal' way of seeing very gradually... it took 9 years before I began to perceive things here as solid.

    After this life was very different. It took another year before I became a breatharian. During that year I no longer slept, however my body needed to lie down and rest for 1.5 hours daily. What was I to do during the long nights when the world around me was sleeping? I settled on hiking in the dark. So, every night for 9 years I headed into the Quicksilver Park, a nature preserve with 4,152 acres of wild, oak studded woodlands. In my heightened state, since the samadhi, many things were learned and seen. But, in my opinion the three most important which led my body to become a breatharian are

    1) I hiked in the dark with and without shoes and off of the trails, which meant I was challenging my fears every night and learning to be courageous in every situation. Also, no weather stopped me, which encouraged my body to become impervious to temperature changes.

    2) I was also getting a lot of exercise and being exposed to the energies of the natural world.

    3) One more thing... I was internally led to frequently lie in the soft green meadows and do a meditation upon the death of my body. This was an ecstatic experience filled with great joy, where I would experience the freedom of the 3D body falling away, then disintegrating into atoms and molecules again which would then be used by other life forms in the 3D world to build their bodies.

    The next spring, over a few days, I went through a transition where I no longer was aware of my heart as a 3D beating thing. Instead my heart became a spinning vortex located somewhere between where my old heart had been and where the third chakra had been. I could no longer hear my heart beat. I began to notice that breathing was an ecstatic experience. Each breath felt thick and warm. Although air came in and out of my nose, the important part of the breath came in through a chakra at the base of my skull. From there it contacted the tissue at the back of the throat (this was directly opposite to the back of the mouth cavity). This thick liquid breath (prana) flowed down through the body along the chi channels and fascia. Each breath felt like liquid love, and each breath was orgasmic.

    The problem with this at the time was, that I found myself having a very difficult time connecting with other people. Their conversation seemed totally insane to me, and I also could not join them in the really big social events... which were always around food. I could not eat with my family, I could not have coffee with my co-workers (yes, I worked every day through this time), I could not go to lunch with friends, I could not go to dinner parties. Is this really true? No it is not, but I could not attend these things without looking like an outsider and seeming strange. After making up stories about having just eaten, having no appetite, and of being on a diet for a few months... I knew others were holding back from interacting with me. So I decided to eat again. Now this was not easy, because my body truly did not want to eat.... It fought me all the way.

    When I finally got the first bite to go down and stay down without my body throwing it up and out again, I knew I was on the road to being able to interact socially with others. That first bite took over 90 minutes to get down and keep down. For about a year I was aware that all the life force in food was extracted in my mouth, from there it went through the same channels that breathing did. (entering the fascia and chi channels at the back of the throat) After chewing the food to extract this prana, what I swallowed was totally devoid of all nutrition and essentially dead decaying tissue that my body needed to deal with.

    So there it is Bill, my story about how I became a breatharian and then gave it up. Here are the steps again, stated simply:
    1) Run your energy daily
    2) Get plenty of exercise
    3) Remain in courage and find things you are scared of to overcome
    4) Spent a lot of time in nature
    5) Do 'death' meditations until they become ecstatic
    6) Pay attention to the chakra at the back of your throat when you breath with the intention of opening it and breathing in prana

    NOTE: The only place I have found this type of breathing discussed is in Diary of a Yogi, by Yogananda. He mentioned that he had ordered this method taught in his school to all the children there. He did this so that if there was ever a famine, they could survive easily without food.

    There are a number of teachers who are working with students to help them make this transition. If you google breatharian you will find a number of links to these methods.

    One last note: I have told this story a number of times, it has always met with silence. No one has ever asked me a question about any of it. Something in consciousness must be changing.... you actually asked me for information.

    Dawn,you took my breath away with this post! Thank you deeply for taking the time to write it and share your 'procedure' with us so eloquently.

    There is so much more that I would like to ask you,and yet,I would'nt want to burden...

    For now,some thoughts are rolling in my head... Extraterrestrials species (from the few sources that are known to us,especially via contactees/abductees like Alex coliier,and some channeled material) as far as we know,can sustain themselves without the need for food and hardly any sleep,they live on the abundant energy of the universe (what we call 'prana') therefore,can it be that those few breatherians individuals here are possibly simply attracted to live the way they used to not long ago ,before they entered the physical body? on the other hand,the majority of society,although contain a mixed DNA,is not yet able at this time,to operate as a food free beings because of the tenuous belonging to extraterrestrial life..

    By what Dawn is describing,she had a profound metamorphosis and opening of chakras that led to her change in 'lifestyle',that means level of soul and movement of vibrations has to be higher in order to be able to connect to this flow of abundance.

    Dear Dawn,

    I am amazed and thrilled to read your post!
    I had a very similar experience when I was a teenager at boarding school.
    After that I found it very hard to eat and have been trying to avoid dinner parties ever since.
    I also only slept about two hours and used to go out for night walks in the countryside - often barefoot.

    It is so good to meet other people who have experienced similar things.

    With love, Jessamy.

    Thanks Dawn, I am going to try this. I have read several of Yogananda's books and my wife has pictures of Yogiji plastered all over the house. He feels like one of those great uncles you can't have too many pictures of on the walls. Before I even met her, I had started reading a book by one of his disciples named Norman Paulson titled "Christ Consciousness". Just beginning to read it brought my celestial princess within my sphere of influence for me to meet after looking and trying on for over 20 years! Been married now 16 years and looking to meditate deeper.

    I've tried some of the other techniques and don't seem to stay with them because my knees are quite a challenge for me-can't sit cross legged. This sounds like tuning into the I AM PRESENCE of the Whole Universe using the Earth as a tuning fork. Mabye I should tie a big rock to my foot in case I float up to the ceiling! Will let you know. Cheers, AT.

    I first read about Jasmuheen, one of the better known breatharians, and an Australian at that, about 18 years ago.
    www.jasmuheen.com

    Another breatharian who has been in the news fairly recently is Prahlad Jani.


    Perhaps of interest to Bill is Akahi, a breatharian from Ecuador.

    Thank you Dawn,

    This is a great thread. Your experience and discipline is very encouraging to me. Practicing the breath technique may help people during these times of shifts, mergings & flows. I used to work not to far from Yognanda's Self Realization Center in Encinitas, Ca. When I had time I used to sit in the Center's garden during my lunch hour & take in the ocean views.

    There are hardly any words for the energy pouring through me in response to the interest in this topic. So many years have happened since the spring of 1977, and in all that time no one was interested in the information I was keeper of. I hope this thread will encourage others to expose and share information they may have on this topic.

    Limor: To address your wonderful post. I was recently gifted with a PDF of an out-of-print book called, "Living on Light, the Source of Nutrition for the New Millennium" by Jasmuheen, 1998 (ISBN 3-929512-35-1). In this book she mentions many of the things I know from my experience. I have not completed the book, however she does say that after completing her 21 day program (not her teaching- but what is mentioned in the book) a person should be able to switch over to living on light (prana) directly. (instead of using it after plants have transformed it using chlorophyll)

    White Feather: Yes, that is the name of the book I mentioned. The book itself is amazing and I understand there has been a new version published which contains information that society was not ready for with the original publication. His mention of teaching students to use the chakra at the base of their skull for bringing prana into the body is brief and I do not remember where in the book he writes about it. The book is so wonderful that I envy you if it is your first time through it... you will probably really enjoy this book.

    Jessamy99: I am so glad to hear from you. I did not have a teacher, a friend, or any mental understanding of the process I was going through. I lived on 'knowing' only, and it was both the best of times and the worst of times. The best because I was so close to my higher self and many highly advanced streams of consciousness. And the worst because I has such a hard time fitting in here on this planet, married to a very 3D guy, with a very 3D child. I was hoping someone like you was on the forum here so that we could reach across space and touch each other's hearts. Can I ask whether you would be willing to write about your experience and what you know? We would all be grateful.

    I would like to add some information I did not previously. My life here has been very challenging this time around. Next weekend my body will have been here 61 years. (yes, I know this reality is a dream but this is the truth on this level of understanding) It is caught in the aging program, and it takes extreme awareness to balance it these days. The book, mentioned above 'Living on Light' has some very specific information about rejuvenation and becoming free of the death program. I know several people who have had their bodies begin to rejuvenate, so I believe this is possible. I do not live on light at this time, once I decided to eat again my body began to slowly age and lose it's extreme sensitivity. I am not sure my body will ever again be balanced enough to make the change to this way of nourishing it.

    During the past few years I have been experimenting with sun gazing as a road back to this type of nourishment. So far, my appetite has dropped, however I have recently found that my raw food diet is not adequate. I have needed to begin supplementing with CDP Choline in order to support my nervous system and feel well. I do not have the answer for a 61 year old body to make the change back into being a full breatharian.

    I really hope some Avalon members have additional information to share. Now appears to be the time when others are open and curious about this topic.

    Thank you, Dawn, for sharing your experiences. Let us hope that in the society we are birthing, your knowledge will be shared openly for all to hear.

    Talking about birthing, I just found this interesting footage. Camila is Akahi's partner, and both are breatharians. Camila is going through a pregnancy as a breatharian, and it is fascinating! Particularly of note is Camila's more than healthy iron and other levels.

    Thanks so much for sharing Dawn - really fantastic. I can remember after a kundalini my vision being much brighter for a few days, however nothing like you described LOL. Thinking about trying this technique out - especially the pranic breathing.

    May I ask: how exactly do you determine an 80/20 energetic split during meditation? In my mind, I'm having a hard time figuring out how to do that. And too, I'm really interested in hearing more about the other, perhaps more inconsequential, experiences you had in that state... just as an example you described the sensation of breath. Perhaps I can ask for starters, what did the connection with nature during your walks (or other times) feel like to you (from the perspective of your relationship with it)?

    Thanks!!

    Quote May I ask: how exactly do you determine an 80/20 energetic split during meditation?
    Johnathon, let me try to answer your questions. About the 80/20 or ... you can also do 90/10....
    Here is an easy walk through for you..... Everything you do in 'running your energy' is done through intention and inner visualization. The first thing to know is that you have absolute control over all of this. NO EXCEPTIONS... this statement applies to everyone. Any doubts you have about your ability to know exactly what to do, and what you are doing, is simply a form of fear trained into you by your life in this reality. So, when you feel unsure or do not know 'how' to do this, thank your mind for informing you that you are experiencing some fear/doubt energy ...and then just continue what you are doing.

    So... with your eyes closed
    ----you imagine a connection to the earth,
    --------next you imagine the earth energy coming up through your feet and legs then draining back down your earth connection.
    --------------now you imagine the cosmic energy that is best for you coming into your crown and moving down your spine
    -----------------then you simply IMAGINE that you are mixing the cosmic/earth energy in about an 80/20 or 90/10 mix that you bring up the front channel of your body clearing your chakras along the way and finally spouting out of your head as a fountain of energy.

    The keys here are:
    ** that you decide you are doing it,
    ***imagine it if you are able,
    ****and dismiss any energy of doubt/fear as interfering energy that has no power

    After writing this I think I might take some time to record this meditation for everyone interested and put it up for free on my website. I will let you know the link for it when it is available on this thread. It might take a day or 2.
    ------------------------------------------------
    Quote what did the connection with nature during your walks (or other times) feel like to you (from the perspective of your relationship with it)?
    I have something to share with you about my experiences with and connection to nature. In my experience all of nature is in the state you are in when in deepest meditation. In order to connect with nature, all you have to do is learn to meditate with your eyes open while you walk through the wild places. You will find that birds and animals come right up to you, and you will begin to actually hear the trees talking and feel the consciousness of the stones in different places. I am happy to tell you about my experiences but I would rather give you the key to your own.

    Recently on Avalon I found a link: www.higherbalance.com and I ordered a free download of a recording that is wonderful. Currently their website is down for a couple of days but I think you can call them in the meantime: toll free (800) 935-4007 (this is in Portland, OR, USA) The author of this free material guides you to going into a special place of intense awareness and connection which he calls the 'in between'. From this place you can examine how this reality is put together your connection to everything within it.

    It isn't really possible to put most of what you learn in this state into language. This connection and awareness exists before language is created. Some of what I learned from hiking all night for 9 years include an awareness of what plants can help as medicine and how to speak to them directly to learn about what they can do for the human body. I also learned to feel the energy in different places on the earth and note which places would enhance my health and awareness in any given moment. I've learned to see the ground with the bottoms of my feet. And I have learned how to become part of every living thing as a direct experience - rather than just a mental idea. I have many friends in the forest who recognize me as an individual (surprisingly) and who extend their protection to me wherever I am through the network of life which exists on this planet.

    Is this the type of thing you wished to know?

    Thanks so much for taking the extra time to clarify Dawn, and yes, I would personally be interested in a recording of the meditation - lovely of you to offer. And yes, these were the types of little experiences I was hoping to hear - fills me with joy to know that someone has moved into the inner or outer potentials. My discipline has been off quite a bit and I have been 'meandering' around 3D again for the past few months or more, which kind of gives me a small inkling as to what the Biblical fall is all about - the fall from the state of grace and union back into attachment (at least that's how it felt to me). In your experience it may seem much more so. Truly appreciate your time. I'm all ears, so as much as you feel like spilling, I'll be happy to sponge =)

    P.S. Where do you imagine your cord to the core of the Earth actually manifesting from? (body location) Probably doesn't matter - just curious.

    Thanks again, Dawn. This blew me away!

    You are putting into words an Ancient Science of the Human Body that has been lost with remnants of it in Yoga, Qgiong, and Tai Chi!

    "As Above, So Below", "As within, So Without" are symbolic references to this experience of Connection to Source.

    Hi Dawn absolutely brilliant thread. I remember reading about breatharianism thru,believe it or not, the astrologer Linda Goodman during the early nineties. She recommended first going vegatarian, then fruitarian for a few years first. She also recommended Yogananda's book and Ive never read it. But it keeps cropping up alot lately so Ive just ordered the book off Amazon. So thanks!!

    Do you think there could be a possibility of switching off the aging program without becoming Breatharian? I think some people here are meant to enjoy the physicals but would still love to drop these programs. Wonder if its possible. Hmmm.x

    Awesome, Dawn! Thanks for sharing!
    Hi, Nortreb -- I’m very aware this resonates with some of the conversations we had when we spent some quality time together in May.

    Dawn -- thank you so much again. I agree with Lord Sid: sharing this kind of personal experience (together with valuable, applicable hard information) is one of the core purposes of the Avalon Forum, and represents Avalon at its best.

    Regarding Prahlad Jani, he is not a a breatharian as such. He has a strong connection to the divine shakti as the hindus call it, emanating from a non physical being existing the higher levels of the astral plane. she blesses him with this energy on a regular basis. when this shakti energy interacts with the pineal gland, it is transformed into a physical substance, commonly known as amrita. the overflow amrita leaks down through the roof of his mouth and then in turn he digests it. this sustains and refines the quality of his body in a way that is not possible with basic pranayama exercises. unless a yogi knows how to convert the chi present in nature to heavenly chi, he/she will not be successful in living without physical sustenance.
