Going a small step backwards we return to what has been so often considered in these pages, namely that everything in the universe vibrates and that the thoughts quiver in and out of man, producing constantly energy, so other vibrations unleash mechanisms leading to significant variations of the oscillations regarding the basic rhythms of the brain.
Up till now, through the EEG recordings that give us the sum of synchronized neuronal activities, namely the rhythms, it was confirmed that the brain’s electric activities have several types of waves that are rhythmic activities denominated activities or rhythms alpha, beta, theta, delta.
According to our knowledge, further psychic waves propagate inside and outside the soma at a precise speed and endure energy transmissions which are not yet recognized by scientific instruments and therefore, even if occasionally or intuitively perceived, not yet profoundly studied by researchers of energetic physics or of neurophysiology.
The propagation of these subtle waves or vibrations involves variations of the intensity of these perceptible electro-magnetic fields and, at the same time, influence the potentials of these slow waves of the abovementioned vibrations.
The variations due to the propagation of these waves or radiations affect the passages of energy hitting especially, by attraction, those control units or vortexes of energy scattered in the human body and correspond roughly to the main plexus of the nervous system.
One of the most exposed and more perceptible to these variations’ "control unit” is made up of the solar plexus, together with the whole vagal system, hence involving substantially respectively the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. Considering the fact that the solar plexus and the vagus nerve are of particular importance to the mechanism of breathing we can also make some further considerations.
The respiratory activity during the state of being awake is linked to two systems: the automatic-metabolic system and the behavioral-voluntary system. By putting in place in the proper way the behavioral-voluntary system, using precise techniques, we can succeed in diminishing the major tension, at least in part, regarding the passage-network of electro-magnetic energies. This allows us to reach such a state of psycho-physical relaxation to stabilize the alpha rhythm and thereby making higher the potential, constant the intensity and transforming this mental wave into a force.
At the same time and consequently the beta wave assumes a slower and synchronized pace, almost as it is in the state of sleep, while the mind is awaken and active. Actually, the aim of the application of these simple techniques is not to reach passivity.
If a subject is placed in a passive position, it allows, first of all, that the energy field that surrounds it is being aimed at, thus becoming almost a vessel for any kind of surrounding energy.
On the other hand, in order that the complex of energy structures relieves the blocks or charges in the distance-network, we must bring into action the will, every time we "work" on ourselves.
And here we have returned to the breathing-behavioral-voluntary system that implies and presupposes, even as a term, being linked to certain activities. This respiratory technique may cause some difficulties if the mind is vigilant (attention, vigilant mind does not mean mind that produces or follows thoughts of various kinds).
