Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.
Thich Nhat Hanh | An Introduction to Buddhist Monastic Training
Breathing is the root of consciousness.
Without focusing on your breathing you become an animal. You lose the mind’s gift of high-level problem solving. You lose sight of the window to becoming superhuman.
Focused breathing is what calms the wind – your mind. When you lose track of your breathing you become un-grounded. When you control your mind you control your energy. Without mind-control your focus becomes a storm that ravages coastal cities with volley after volley of hits.
Like when you feel you cannot control your life.
Because you can’t. unless you breathe.
Watch the video below.
Breathing and mindfulness will give you superpowers.
Wim Hoff can transform into a furnace on command. He controls his immune system and prevents disease within his body like a blessed healer.
Wim Hoff is capable of swimming in glacier cold water. He has broken records, shattering truths held by scientific minds across nations. Wim summits mountains without a shirt, wearing shorts.
All of this, because of breathing.
Imagine what you can do.
You can do anything you want in this world by being conscious. Breathing is steroids for the brain. Super-strength, energy perseverance and focus.
Breathing brings your mind into the moment, making you invincible to criticism, emotions, and weakness. Every door that’s closed can now be opened for you. You’re living the best version of your life when you breathe.
This energy is unlimited. Breathing is with you forever. No one can take breathing away from you.
“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.”
― Amit Ray,
If you’re wondering if there is a secret to breathing, there most definitely is.
I’ll tell you the secret to breathing.
Joe Rogan Now uses this same breathing method above before all of his stand up routines. Powerful.
Awareness Is the Secret To Breathing.
It’s nothing complicated in theory. Effort is where 99% of people fail. In my first breathing post, I listed multiple different styles of breathing. How you breath doesn’t matter. What matters is that each breath you take, you’re aware of it happening. I listed multiple different breathing methods that all come to the same conclusion. You’re aware of your breathing. You’re breathing consciously.
That’s the secret. Be aware. Breath consciously.
This will unlock your super-human abilities.
Breathing Method Posts On Andreia Thoughts.
Every breathing post on Andreia Thoughts will be different, but will all result in the same goal. Being Conscious of your breathing. The Secret. Where other writers want to charge you for their super-secret time bending secret of performance I give it to you. I’ll post different styles of breathing I use, have experimented with, or others have highly recommended.
Which Breathing Method Should I Use?
Whatever you want. Use one breathing method, or ten. Switch between them on different days, different hours, it doesn’t matter. Experiment with every breathing method you can get your pure little hands on. From Andreia Thoughts, Wim hoff, and whatever B grade writer who teaches yoga and enlightenment. The only thing that matters is the secret. Breath to achieve consciousness and awareness. No automatic breathes. That’s the only rule. The different breathing methods are meant to give you options. They often have strange names like whale breathing. This is so you remember them. Whale Breathing is much more memorable than hold your breath, kind of.

I’ve read many books on breathing, most all of them are terrible. Once you know the secret to breathing everything sounds the same. There are two standouts I’ve found in my research and have them listed below. I highly recommend you read both of these books immediately. 10% happier is a combination of breathing and meditation.
