Yeah I only do throat singing in full lotus as the key is to be very relaxed and this is from the vagus nerve activation -- so the reverse breathing
from the diaphgram.
O.K. on meditation -- well any time we chant or sing it empties out the left brain language dominance -- so it is an emotional catharsis.
This works in the reverse as well as the book The Haunting Melody by Theodore Reik details - he was in Vienna with Brahms and Freud, etc. -- so he
discovered that when we get a melody in our head and then we recognize the words -- then the words are revealing our subconscious emotional
connections with our perceptions.
So the Taoists teach there are five different sounds that apply to five different organs and so this can be used for healing -- there's several
examples on youtube if you want to practice that.
So the most used chant is "Ohm Mani Padmi Hum" - the Vedic pronounciation and the Tibetan is "Hung Bame Padme Hung" -- or something like that.
My take on this is that the change of verbs actually causes a phase change in the brain -- I call this the Triode Amplifier effect -- I wrote an
article on it here
The basic idea again is the critical sublimation of the lower body energy.
So that "throat friction" says not to make any formants or anything just a slight raspy breathing to resonate the larynx and this activates the
throat chakra to open up the psychic energy -- but again this is considered the Moon energy and is the electrochemical or jing or kundalini energy to
be sublimated up into the brain.
So it should not be forced but be relaxed and the mind controls the breath -- the two are interwoven but actually it's the source of sound in our
mind that then slows down the breath and converts it to electromagnetic energy.
So actually this internal chanting of a mantra -- not external sound -- but in the mind chanting is called "japa" -- and that is considered normal
but again that is just to help focus the mind.
When the mind is concentrated - for example all thoughts are based on the I-thought so actually the foundation of making sound is to listen to the
source of thoughts -- so even if you repeat I-I-I in the mind and then any thought that pops into the mind - logically it is always based on the
So the logical pursuit is where does your I-thought come from? For example in deep dreamless sleep we contact our true selfs as pure bliss energy but
during this time we experience no time and no space and no sense of self. So our true consciousness is not any thought or sound in our brain.
Now normally this deep dreamless sleep is in ignorance but there is a "fourth state" called Turiya in Vedic philosophy -- essentially it means
creating light spirit energy while in the deep dreamless sleep state.
So when the mind really concentrates we then listen to the source of thoughts while we see light internally as we are connecting with our spirit
energy. This is considered an awake REM state as a visionary state -- aligned with the Theta brain wave and Delta brain wave and so the heart is
resonating as that is its natural frequency -- around 7 hertz and so there is an amplification of the heart energy to create stronger electromagnetic
This has been proven by a doctor - that when people have an OBE experience is it this waking REM state and a deep meditation practitioner who had a
NDE -- she now has very strong waking delta brain waves.
So then as the energy increases and the light becomes more intense then the energy is stored below and behind the navel as the completion of the
circuit after the heart has created the electromagnetic energy from the lower body neurohormones or electrochemical energy. This is called the
"small universe" exercise or "microcosmic orbit" and the secret is that it is 12 nodes along the outside of the body as the 12 notes of the music
scale but not western music -- so we listen to those notes and practice the scale and each time the scale turns then the frequency of the energy goes
higher into light energy.
The tongue is placed into the roof of the mouth known as the 'Magpie Bridge', which acts as a kind of switch which completes the energy circuit
so that too much energy cannot build up in the head which can lead to headaches or even hallucinations. This practice of tongue in the roof of the
mouth also encourages the flow of saliva which has a cooling effect when swallowed which helps to offset the physiological heat of the exercises, but
which can also be purified and transmuted into the 'Nectar of Heaven' which alchemists claimed will lead to immortality.
So the key is to keep the tongue to the roof of the mouth -- this is the secret meaning of the formant Allah
