Lifelong vegitarian here!
Pranayama is interesting and there have been some to have claimed to live on the energy of air alone.
I think eventually with science we can understand this process and bring about these effects with our technology.
Pranayama is certainly interesting, I only started taking it seriously after I had done my research into the Wim Hof method and his breathing
I think science does already understand a great deal of the underlying processes behind this, as I outlined in my OP, and many have indeed undergone
rigorous testing, like Prahlad Jani, Michael Werner, Ray Maor, who also appeared on television during his 8-day "custody" (with cameras all around)
while he consumed neither food nor any drink.
Jamusheen also had a test, but like I have already pointed out she was locked in a room in a city with no fresh air and noise, not conducive to
meditation and a peaceful mind, without which maintaining a breatharian lifestyle is hardly possible. Your mind must be open to the in-streaming
energies of the Universe as a pre-requisite in the first place, to become a breatharian, doing it to save money will just get you starved to death. As
a piece of warning here, In the past 30 years 50.000 people have transitioned, that number does not include all those (about the same number, based on
reported success ratios in workshops) who tried but were not ready and therefore did not transition, yet 4 of these people managed to ignore the signs
that they were not ready, managed to not follow the guidelines (vitally important, quite literally) and consequently died due to the resulting
I think that anyone who wants to think about this seriously for themselves must first and foremost, before any attempt, look deep inside and be clear
about whether they have a "call" for this, and secondly, to always follow the guidelines, which are always carefully set out no matter which process
you follow. Being "spiritual" or being a regular meditator do not in and of themselves guarantee a successful transition. You can't do this with the
goal simply being "never to have to eat again", or to save money, and as I explained a B lifestyle does not even mean that you will never eat again.
Ray Maor himself explains this:
What Breatharian guides don't want you to know about pranic living:
He has tons more videos on his channel not only on this topic but also about general fasting, minimalism and many others related to spiritualism and
an eco-conscious living. He also has a video about his own journey, which you will see is completely different from mine, although we seem to have
ended up in similar positions and view eventually, with him being more "attached" to the world, not only by being a spiritual teacher but also living
in the city. As in all groups, Bs also come from all walks of life and will end up living different lives even after the transition. Not everyone
wants to live isolated in a remote eco-village like we do.
