This page is for our Accessing the Akashic Records Meetup Group

Our Meetup Group has gatherings twice a month for individuals wanting to practice the art of accessing the Akashic Records. This is a free meeting - the only prerequisite is a sincere intention for learning. For more information about times and venues:   

Alternate Nostril Breathing Pattern


Our bodies are designed to naturally alternates nostrils throughout the course of a twenty-four-hour period. Our nostrils are designed to alternate the direction and volume of the chi energy attached to the molecules of oxygen. This is necessary to maintain the proper balance of the subtle life force energies (chi) that give vitality to the “sight” centers of the brain. We can actively stimulate that visual center by forcing an alternate pattern of breathing specifically designed to gather chi at the back of the brain. This will help energize the connection between sensory sight and extra-sensory perception.

Side note: The teachings of pranayama, the study of influencing the movement of chi energy (chi) through the vital centers of the body, goes back several thousands of years and is central to the study of yoga. The work of B. K. S. Iyengar, a renowned master of hatha yoga, brings profound understanding to this subject. His book entitled, Light on Pranayama, offers subtle insights into the workings of these vital forces and how we can stimulate them to achieve expansion within our conscious awareness.


Technique #1:


Body Posture: Always sit comfortably with your spinal column erect and lifted. When sitting on the floor, a small pillow, or two, can make the difference if your hamstring muscles or hips are tight. Do not use the back of a chair for support; keep your back straight by adjusting your hips. Using the arm of the chair to support your right arm will put you into the wrong posture. Imagine the crown of your head being attached to a string hanging down from the ceiling that is gently pulling you upward. Your chin will naturally tilt slightly downward as you imagine the lift.


Hand Posture: The last two fingers of the right hand control the flow of oxygen into and out of the left nostril, while the thumb of the right-hand controls the inhalation and exhalation of the right nostril. Overlap your fourth finger with the third finger, creating a mass equal to that of your thumb. See the photo below.


The Breath: This breath is designed to awaken the centers at the back of the brain that allow for greater “vision.” This breath is not a balanced breath and should not be done for extreme lengths of time. For the average person fifteen to twenty minutes is enough. If you feel any nausea or dizziness while doing this breath, stop for a moment, then continue your focused breathing, replacing the exhalation through the mouth with exhaling through the left nostril.


Always begin this breath with three conscious exhalations through both nostrils. Expand the diaphragm as you breathe deeply into your belly through your nostrils, then contract the diaphragm as you exhale through both nostrils. Repeat two more times. There are two separate phases to this breathing pattern. First get accustomed to the pattern by repeating the first phase a few times, then add the second phase.

First Phase

  • Close your left nostril and breathe in through right nostril.

  • Close both nostrils and breath out through your mouth.

  • Open your left nostril and inhale.

  • Close your left nostril at the top of your inhalation, open your right nostril and exhale.

– Repeat –

  • In through the right.

  • Out through the mouth.

  • In through the left.

  • Out through the right.


Then, once you are comfortable with that pattern, you can add the second phase (in bold):


  • In through the right.

  • Out through the mouth.

  • In through the left.

  • Out through the right.

Second Phase

  • In through the left.

  • Out through the right.

  • In through the mouth.

      Out through the left.

Two-syllable Mantra

This mantra is used to deepen an individual's level of meditation. To enter the Akasha - Akashic Records - it is necessary that we are able to concentrate at every increasing sharpness. This is naturally accomplished when we give up the NEED to be right, thus releasing judgment and conflict. This mantra gives us a jump on that process by increasing the alchemical process within our mind by harmonically grounding the soul, spirit, body connection. The mantra is said aloud three times and then taken internally for no more than 20 minutes at a setting. The mantra is sounded aloud in a monotone higher pitch than your normal voice. OAUM NAUM is the two-syllable sounding.   

Ratio Breathing Technique

Ratio breathing patterns are used for very specific purposes. The Master's Breath ratio of 1-4-2 is used when an individual is attempting to awaken their spiritual sight - third eye. Our bodies naturally produce the brain chemistry necessary to open the paranormal function of the pineal gland. All the worlds cultures have used natural and, in our modern age, artificial substances to cause the pineal to function at a "spiritual" level. The one ingredient necessary for this to happen is called DMT (N, N-Dimethyltryptamine is a tryptamine molecule). This breathing ratio encourages the body to produce small amounts of this molecule. Use an evenly measured source for counting the ratios, such as a metronome or the second hand of a clock. DO NOT use your pulse for counting. If the beginning inhalation number in the ratio is 4 then the second number, or hold count is 16 and the exhale is 8. If the beginning number is 5, the hold is 20 and release 10 - and so on. Only do this for up to 20 minutes at a time. You can do this several times in a day. 


Pranayama Preparation

Sitting cross-legged or in full lotus position is always great for supporting a lift upward through your spine. If using a seiza bench or yoga cushion, made certain that your shins and knees are protected. In any case, sit with your spine lifted as opposed to straightened. You can do this as a simple thought exercise putting space between the vertebra.



















About how-to breath: breath through your nose. If you cannot, shape your mouth in an oval and breath through your mouth. Every pranayama breath begins with a complete exhalation. Each inhalation and exhalation need to be full. Inhale deep into the belly, filling out the mid-torso with a slight lift to the shoulders as you complete the inhalation. Exhale from your chest first, then mid torso and finally compress the belly toward the spine.

Additionally: This particular technique involves contracting the major muscles of the pelvic floor. These muscles all attach to the perineum, the area located between the anus and the scrotum in men and between the anus and the vagina in women. Tensing the perineum helps direct the upward flow of chi while doing certain breathing exercises.  


Short Tanden Centering

The full practice of Seika Tanden Kokyu is a great exercise to center consciousness into the now. This short exercise is for a quick centering just prior to other pranayama breathing patterns.


Sit comfortably in a warm still setting. If it is chilly, cover your body with a meditation shawl or light natural-fiber fabric.


1 Inhaling begin the technique by drawing chi up from the root chakra (in the arch of each foot) and into the base chakra (at the base of your spine). Make certain that this is a complete inhalation.

2 HOLDING that inhalation, contract the deep muscles at the base of your abdomen, once, relax and then twice, relax and then three times, relax.

3 Then as you exhale move the chi from the base chakra upward to a point just below

your navel - your tanden (hara or belly brain).

4 With your next inhalation, breath in through your tanden, move the chi up the right

side of your spine to the top of your neck, that point where your neck and head join

(medulla oblongata of the brain stem).

5 As you exhale allow that chi to pour down the left side of your spinal column

stopping at your tanden.

6 Inhale through your tanden, move the energy up the right side of your spine to the

top of your neck.

7 Exhale as the energy pours down the left side of your spinal column.

Repeat for an intuitive amount of time.







Expanding Chi Energy to Third Eye Complex

Read through this breathing pattern before your first experience. As much as visualizing the paths of energy, it is important to feel the chi moving in the described pattern. Giving lift to the spine helps to increase the flow of chi through the chakras as does a comfortable posture with the shoulder blades moving together – this opens your outer chest.


Underlying every thought is a feeling. Feelings inspire our thought process just as thoughts can guide us to feelings. Please know that where your thoughts go, energy flows. This is always true. It is purely a matter of focus. Keep focused on the pattern and feelings even as wandering thoughts move in for attention, and they will.


As stated, it is important to feel the pathway of chi during this breathing exercise. Inhale and exhale through your nose. If you cannot breathe through your nose, use your mouth in the shape of an oval.


Every breath starts with a deep, deliberate exhalation, letting your chest fall toward your navel, then pulling your belly fully inward, contracting toward the spine for a complete exhalation. This will allow for a deep inhalation as we begin.


To begin: 1. Visualize brilliant chi energy gathering in front of your throat chakra. It is pure energy showing as tiny particles of bright energetic light. Slowly inhale that pure energy through your throat chakra, lifting it upward to the center of your head to a point just across from the top of your ear.


Hold a moment.


Now slowly exhale that breath through a small opening in the center of your forehead – your brow chakra – just above the eyebrows. Imagine that opening to be shaped like your lips when you are blowing out a candle.


2. Visualize brilliant chi energy gathering in front of your brow chakra. Slowly inhale through your forehead – the same opening as your previous exhale – sending that energy through the center of your head (same point across from the top of your ear).


Hold for a moment.


Through an opening the size of a peanut butter jar lid, slowly exhale that energy upward out through your crown chakra. Feel that exhalation as a forceful breath.


3. Visualize brilliant chi energy gathering above your crown chakra. Slowly inhale through the same opening in your crown chakra moving the chi to the center of your head (same point across from the top of your ear).


Hold for a moment.


Slowly exhale that chi energy out through the back of your head where your neck and head join. This is called the Mouth of God, or, medulla oblongata of the brain stem.


4. Visualize brilliant chi energy gathering across from the Mouth of God. Slowly inhale, moving that energy up to the center of your head.


Hold for a moment.


Slowly exhale through your throat chakra … Repeat the pattern for twenty minutes.

                     1                                           2                                             3                                               4




We briefly covered the human aura - this is basically how it is viewed in a balanced state - the only conflict being the collaboration of an eternal soul and an evolving spirit focused through a dimensional form With every conflict, the energy of the chakras become distorted causing the aura to visually indicate energy blocks as voids or shadows where the soul and spirit enjoin. The lighter blue in the image below indicates the field of energy in which the etheric forms of the soul and spirit collaborate.
