Science To Spirit
We live in a time where we desperately need creative minds and visionaries to join forces and solve the immense problems that face humans. The financial system, healthcare, and the environment are suffering because of a broken system.
The schooling system has educated generations out of this creativity and crushed billions of souls in the process. Humans have become robotized and turned into obedient servants, propping up a corrupt economic system that is gradually destroying our planet.
Most people are experience life through a sleeping trance and to change things they must wake up!
There was a time however where things were different, a time in our ancient history that we can learn a lot from
The Legend Of Soma
The legend of Soma tells of a sacred ritual that the ancient Rishis would indulge in during the Golden Age of the Vedic tradition. In this time period the population was much smaller and resources were more abundant. People lived peacefully and harmoniously.
This legendary ritual is thought to have involved the ingestion of a psychedelic plant. The identity of which has still not been confirmed by historians. It is claimed to be a mysterious and magical ritual that would allow the Rishis to commune with the Gods and have direct divine downloads of wisdom that would aid the betterment of society. It is also thought to be the same ritual that would allow the Rishis to create superhuman powers, overcome death and lead to immortality.
This sounds far fetched, however new emerging science is beginning to back up many of the claims held in our spiritual past.
Substance To Spirit
These inspirational visions would go on to inspire the verses of the Rig Veda, an ancient text that forms the origins of yoga, ayurveda, tantra, hinduism and buddhism. However according to legend at one point in time Soma ran out. This forced people to go inward in order to seek new ways to get to the same ecstatic states that allows connection to the divine.
Scientifically Soma could be described as a method to ingest a quantity of DMT and other psychoactive chemicals that would sustain for long enough inside the brain to produce the visionary effects.
This molecule is found in very small amounts in your body and we naturally produce tryptamines like melatonin and serotonin that are structurally very similar. It has been hypothesised that either DMT or a combination of tryptamines are released when you dream, and just before you die, to explain the reason for the vivid dream like hallucinations and experiences similar to ‘near death’ you get after consuming DMT in larger amounts. This is why it has been regarded as the ‘spirit molecule’.
Spirit To Science
Breathing practices are important to yoga, tantra and shamanic cultures. The latin root of the word ‘spiritual’ actually means ‘to breathe’ and the original rituals of modern organized religions have a breathwork component to them as they are believed to lead you closer to God.
An ancient pranayama breathwork technique called Nisshesha Rechaka Kumbhaka or holding your breath beyond the comfort zone for a short period of time, creates a physiological state known as intermittent hypoxia that involves brief periods of lower than normal blood oxygen levels.
If properly practiced according to legend, this breathwork ritual will lead to eternal youth and immortality by producing Amrita, the nectar of Gods. Amrita is closely linked to Soma, and it has been suggested that Soma also exists in the body and may even be another name for DMT.
Perhaps Amrita is in fact the movement of somatic stem cells around the body? Stem cells have the power to turn into any other cell and are found in greatest number when you are in the womb as an embryo, a time when you exist in a state of hypoxia, as the oxygen levels in the womb are about 10% of the outside world.
Once you are born the stem cells hide away in places of low oxygen such as bone marrow. New treatments are emerging that extract stem cells from your body, for hope one day they can be used to recreate organs and can cost upwards of $20,000.
However new research shows that intermittent hypoxic training, where you create brief periods of low oxygen levels, can produce almost instantaneous results by actually stimulating stem cells to come out of their niches and move around the body and to places where they can heal and regenerate healthy cells for your organs.
This form of therapy has been used by Russian doctors for decades to treat a number of diseases such as coronary heart disease, and even to improve recovery time from injury and athletic training. Stamina and endurance is also enhanced as intermittent hypoxia stimulates the production of new muscle tissue, red blood cells and even blood vessels.
Using a combination of scientifically proven breathwork techniques, rhythmical and euphoric music, guided meditation and imagery I have developed a remarkable process for reaching heightened states of consciousness and ecstatic bliss. It has even been described as a ‘psychedelic orgasm on DMT’ by a modern shaman.
Through a more therapeutic variation of this same process, the layers of your mask peel away and reveal your true nature. This is similar to the way early pioneers of psychedelic therapy, such as Timothy Leary did using LSD to treat various problems conventional forms of therapy could not touch.
You connect deeply to who you really are. Through this awareness comes the path to truth.
Through truth you learn exactly the difference between what is good for you and what is no longer serving you anymore.
You can remove negativity and attachment to the past, fully embrace the present and be at your very best every single day.
This is the evolution of Soma Breath.
