The eighth body is the Pranic Body and it holds and circulates prana, or life force.
The Ajna Chakra, the Sixth Chakra, is also called the Third Eye and is the seat of intuition. Ajna means “to command” so the Ajna Chakra is the command chakra. Kundalini Yoga strengthens a person’s intuition by developing the Third Eye allowing a person to command his or her own life and go in the direction that he or she wants to go.
Pranayam is one of the most effective ways to boost the immune system. One powerful breathing exercise is “Dog Breath”, a panting-like breath that clears mucus and toxins from the body. Yogi Bhajan said that, when practiced correctly, “The Breath of Ten is a complete breath along the line of Breath of Fire. It can give you a disease-free body, a clear, meditative mind and develop your intuition, but it requires practice.” This meditation will detox your body and leave you feeling revitalized!
Breath is a fundamental tool for the Kundalini yogi. Through the practice of pranayam techniques, a person can promote his or her physical, emotional, and spiritual health and well-being. Pranayam exercises are great for keeping the mind neutral and the body relaxed. They are also very effective in strengthening the immune system. If you aren’t feeling up for physical exercises, pranayam meditations are great ways to boost the immune system!
When all else fails, remember to breathe!
Breath is a powerful tool to shape our perception of the present moment.
