The most significant power of the human mind is the ability to focus on a subject for an extended period. Who doesn’t know the story of using the Magnifying glass to concentrate sunlight on a sheet of paper to burn it? If you want to talk to someone far away, you make a funnel to focus the sound in the direction of your hand on speaking. Something similar happens when you focus your mind onto a single goal for an extended period. The benefits of unwavering focus and concentration are many. Everything that is worth accomplishing in the world is attracted to focus. Whether it be a good relationship or a college exam, starting a new business or taking it to the next level, with unwavering focus, you get the power to perform impossible feats of accomplishments with ease.
In any form of yoga, consistency and focus are of utmost importance. For example, focus on the first step in Raja Yoga. At the very beginning, you are required to practice concentration. It is then merged with meditation and becomes a part of it. If you can’t focus your energies, yoga isn’t possible. And when we talk about yoga here, we are not talking about weird bodily postures. We are talking about the literal meaning of yoga, which is “to merge”, to get in the flow, to lose yourself in the activity of your undertaking.
With concentration, you can lose distractions. In ancient times, distraction was a form of alertness. It was something useful. It was used by our ancestors to keep themselves from becoming food to tigers. Distraction was a small notification function in the brain. When you are sitting with your family, you may be thinking about work. When you are working, you are thinking about your relationships. When you’re doing some job, you tend to procrastinate, and your mind wanders in the dreamy world of some other dimension. Such happenings hinder your progress in any activity you undertake. Today, being focused means being alert and being actively involved in whatever you’re trying to do.
When you practice Nitaai Breathing technique, you feel better from head to toe. Your muscles get relaxed. You gain mental clarity. It increases the dopamine levels in your brain and gives a feel-good vibe. When you resonate Nitaai Sound regularly, the HPA Axis (hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis) which controls your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system comes to a balanced state. With natural resonance to the sound of Nitaai, you can achieve a relaxed form of alertness. You are calm and alert at the same time. It’s like a better RAM management system for your mind and body. Whatever work you do, you will put all your effort and energies into completing it. You will not want to leave the tasks unfinished.
Nitaai Breathing is the key to activate the calm alertness you’ve been trying to achieve for so long. Most yoga practices, need you to take up great activities like celibacy and pranayama, but with Nitaai Breathing, you are stimulating your solar plexus and all the other energy centers of your body directly to achieve the constant flow of alertness and mindfulness.
