Good day X family... Masters of true craft..

Welcome to the X breath Lost Art of Breathing

The Four Methods Of Respiration

When we hear Respir-at-ion what are we aware of  in terms of the wholistic function and its cap-abilities...

The whole mechanics of the system come into function by the elasticity movements of our lungs and the bottom and sides of the Thoracic Cavity in which the lungs are contained (the chamber of the body of vertebrate that is protected by the thoracic wall which is the rib cage and connective tissue)

The thorax is the trunk between the neck and abdomen and the cavity is mainly where the heart and lungs sit.

It is joined together by the spine, ribs, connective tissue, breastbone and below THE DI-A-PH-RA-G-M…


We have 12 ribs on each side. There are S-even "true ribs" that are joined to the breastbone directly and the Lower 5 are floating ribs called "false ribs", of which the top 2 are joined by cartilage while the others have no cartilage.

When we INHALE our muscles (respiratory muscles) expand our lungs which creates a vacuum and the mediation of pressure pulls air...

Without these muscles or lack of training to these muscles the lungs cannot expand. If we control and use the muscles this is what allows the Art of Breath to be found.

Controlling these muscles will allow for highest amount of lung expansion possible and the highest amount of life force properties into our system.

To this, there are 4 methods to this...

Low breathing

Mid breathing

HIGH breathing

And Complete breathing

The most important being the complete breath.

So we will touch on the low, mid, and high breath but bring more attention to the COMPLETE Breath.

High breathing is known as Clavicular Breathing/collarbone breathing.

Breathing this way elevates the ribs while the collarbone and shoulders rise...

In this action the abdomen is drawn in which causes the inside to push up against the diaphragm and this effect lifts it..

This will use the upper part of our chest which is the smallest and thus we intake the least amount of air. This is the worst way to breathe known.. Why..?

As the diaphragm is raised there is no room for expansion in the lower direction which we will soon come to learn why the lower is more beneficial.

Scientists looking at the chest will believe this is the best way to breathe, but we know the nature of the matrix and the reverse of things.

If you have any doubt to this F-act of high breathing being poor waste of energy,

Expel all the breath, stand with the hands by the sides, keeping the shoulders at the sides, raise them along with the collar bone inhale through the chest.

Let the arms drop, and do the same. Take a full breath and you will see the difference and will know..


MID breathing

This is also known as Rib breathing/intercostal breathing.. This is better than high breathing but is far inferior to low breathing or complete breathing.

During Mid breathing the Diaphragm is pushed upwards and the abdomen is drawn in.

The ribs are raised a little and the chest is partially expanded

This is common with beings who tend to have no knowledge on this subject.

This is only a short explanation as there are 2 techniques that are much superior which we will give our attention to...

LOW breathing.

This form is MUCH better than high and mid breathing methods.

Most western breathing workshops and teachers focus on this but a true Union seeker will eventually come to know the complete breath to be the most beneficial.

But in saying this one must get to know Low breathing before one can fully grasp complete breathing.

The partition muscle is how we see the Diaphragm and this separates the chest from the abdomen with all its contents.

If it is at rest you see a concave surface to our abdominal.

Symbiotically the side of our Diaphragm towards the organs of our chest is rounded like a protruding semi circle.

When we breathe the Diaphragm is now in use and the semi circle is lowered and then presses on the organs and forces out our abdomen.

In low breathing the lungs are more free than in mid and high and more air is inhaled.

Even still this may be the best of the 3, to draw out the abdomen there is still a superior breathing method Complete breathing that is utilising the full space and maximum amount of life force can be in union with your body.

So we move to


This is the best breathing method known to man.

For a full inhalation of our life force in every breath, this is the one.

To be conscious of your breath and to breathe this way will not only fill your body with life giving properties in turn this will restore and regenerate dead cells and bring life back..

Once the system has restored balance there will be excess prana...

This will extend life and is such a key element to conscious mastery over our system.

In this breath we take all of the good actionable aspects of the high, mid and low breathing with the Bad aspects removed.

One of the key aspects of this method is the respir-a-tor-y muscles are action one will develop strength, control a great relationship with the system...

Another aspect is the ribs are used consciously, which in turn creates a greater space for expansion and as a consequence gives the correct support for the organs.

Some muscles hold the lower ribs firmly, while others bend them outward.
