The Magic of Breathless State (a samadhi)

breathless samadhi
Breathless state is a type of samadhi in which the breath is almost in a suspended state. As the energy body opens up, the prana starts moving through the sushumna (the central psychic pathway) in a powerful way. It is at that stage, the breath becomes feeble and one can enter states of breathless state. When the prana flows through sushumna, you can feel the air flowing through both the nostrils. It is quite easy to feel.. There is no magic or something that cannot be proven.

Ways to open up psychic pathways: Some of the powerful ways to work with the psychic pathways requires one go subtle. Kriya pranayama, which is one of the techniques of Kriya yoga works directly with the psychic pathway. If you are able to feel and work with the whole of your subtler energy body (as in Vipassana), that also opens up the sushumna in a wonderful way. To feel the energy body, one has to initially work with breath. Working with the breath is a whole system in itself and can give wonderful results.
