In every major spiritual tradition, the word for spirit and the word for breath are synonymous. In the Old Testament, the Hebrew word for Spirit is Ruach, which means breath. In the New Testament, the Greek word for Spirit is Pneuma, which also means breath. In the Chinese traditions, the words used are Chi or Qi, and in the Hindu tradition, the Sanskrit word is Prana, which of course, also means breath.
To inspirit is to infuse with life, and to breathe is also to infuse with Lifeforce Energy. The average person's normal breathing rate is 12 to 16 breaths per minute, and with each breath we take we are circulating the Lifeforce Energy through our body, and then sending it back out into the world. We do this unconsciously, but it can also be done consciously. Conscious awareness of the breath is called Pranayama.
Glen Payne discusses Kundalini & Quantum Physics as part of the Kundalini Connections Conference, hosted by the Emerging Sciences Foundation. The Emerging Sciences Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is dedicated to the scientific study of Kundalini, and is concentrated on raising global awareness of Kundalini through global research. One of the members of its Board of Directors is Mauro Zappaterra, MD, who describes the relationship between Kundalini and the Cerebrospinal Fluid in the video below:
Before you watch the videos below and start practicing the exercises, first watch Dr. Mauro Zappaterra as he explains the physiology of what happens when the kundalini is activated and rises up the spine to energize the pituitary and pineal glands. Dr. Zappaterra postulates that cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is the vehicle within the body that carries the kundalini energy as it makes its ascent. Keep a clear vision of what Dr. Zappaterra is explaining in your mind as you practice your pranayama and kundalini exercises, and it will surely enhance your experience.
