What is being alert good for?And… How do we do this?…By breathing!
There are many ways to raise our level of consciousness.One of them is through breathing.Conscious breathing establishes a completely different psychic state than when breathing mechanically and involuntary.
Voluntarily raising our level of consciousness is a method that leads the individual to a state of alertness. Hypsoconciousness is the term that is used to refer to the essence of this method, meaning, raising the conscious, or raising the LEVEL OF CONSCIOUSNESS.
Hypsoconciousness exercises are intended to foster an individual’s awakening.
There are several ways to do these exercises, we invite you to try them out.
- Standing, feet slightly apart, chin up, shoulders slightly back, start breathing in, expanding the abdomen, softly pushing it forward until it looks a bit round. Continue breathing in until your lungs are full, now filling the chest area, which naturally makes the abdomen go in. While breathing out make sure to pull in your stomach softly to enable the release of residual air.
