Frequently Asked Questions

Any suffering, whether it is disease, distress or disorder is a manifestation of long suppressed emotions. As we witness the emotion, experience it with our breath, the emotions leave our body and get grounded. 

For the deeper insight, watch the video of Science of Cure and read page no. 214 of the book. To understand how emotions are grounded, visit Whispering Wisdom Watch > Course Videos > Stop knowing your emotions. Experience them instead (Grounding Emotions – explained by Naveen Varshneya)

Every moment is an event and every event triggers an emotion. Similarly, for you waking up for Agneya session is triggering an emotion- for e.g., it is triggering anxiety. Anxiety is the fear of future i.e., of not being able to get up in the morning and missing the session. This is surfacing to be grounded. Grounding emotion means either the emotion leaving the body or the intensity, periodicity and time interval of the same diminishing.

Connect with your breath, start observing it, when this fear/anxiety comes up and you would find the intensity, periodicity and time interval of this fear going down.

As you go further in the course, you would watch the lecture Science of Cure and Emotional Body which will deepen your awareness about the root cause of the anxiety and how it will get dissolved. 

Watch the video Intensity, Periodicity & Time Interval to have deeper understanding of this concept. (Whispering Wisdom – Watch > Course Videos > Intensity, Periodicity & Time Interval Video)

Breath can be observed at any point of time in any posture, even while working or talking to someone.  However, when we observe the breath as the first step of the technique of NV Swimming, the same is done in a lying down position. Also, it is recommended that you make a discipline to observe the breath in a lying down position once or twice a day and inculcate it as a routine. This will help you ground the emotions which surface during the process and thereby help you walk towards health and wellbeing.

Breath is flowing in you 24×7. There is no fixed time at which you should observe your breath. In general, if periodically during the day you can remember to observe the breath doing whatever you are doing, through the day, then you will find miraculous difference in your interactions and your ability to pay attention to the particular task.

You can also OTB while in a meeting or conversation which is stressful by paying attention to your breath while in such a situation. You will find that the situation was less impactful for you.

It is called Science of Cure which is the base concept of NV Life which you will learn in detail through the course. 

The principle is that breathing is inversely proportional to thoughts. Mind generates the thoughts which have only one purpose i.e., to control, regulate or suppress the emotions which we are not able to cope with. As we observe our breath, our thoughts begin to diminish. As thoughts begin to diminish, emotions start to surface. 

Just witness the emotions while observing your breath and do nothing about them.  Emotions have motion- therefore, as you witness your emotions, they will leave your body and get grounded. The same will no longer impact you- which will take you towards health and wellbeing.

When you are angry, simply witness your breath as it goes in and comes out, the way it is happening. Your breath could be jerky, rapid or random. Whichever way your breathing is happening, you just observe it while you witness the anger/or any other emotion. By witnessing your breath, it is meant that you do not change or manipulate your breath, you just watch it.

Anger is a reflex action to cope with an emotion. Beneath the anger there would be another emotion, such as fear/feeling of being unloved, unappreciated which will surface as the anger gets grounded. For e.g., your boss rejected the work you did, you felt unappreciated and as a reflex action you went into anger. As you breath on the anger, you would realize that you had felt unappreciated in that moment. As you stay with your breath the emotion of feeling unappreciated will surface, and it will leave your body and get grounded.

The reason you are not able to recollect your thoughts after OTB means that your negative emotions have grounded and thus the thoughts which were controlling these emotions have no purpose, hence, your mind is no longer occupied with the same. 

Mindfulness is a different modality which uses the mind to give suggestions/affirmations. Whereas NV Life techniques and processes profess that meditation is the state of thoughtlessness. 

NV Life techniques are based on the principle that breathing is inversely proportional to thoughts. As you start to observe your breath, your conscious mind drops and merges with your subconscious mind where all the emotions, memories of the past are stored. In simple language- your conscious mind is like RAM and your subconscious mind is like the hard disk of a computer. As the conscious mind empties of the baggage of overwhelming emotions, the subconscious opens to flow into it and the consciousness expands, your self-awareness increases. 

Every event/experience we have had in life has a purpose and holds the key how to lead the life i.e., the past experiences hold all the insights and wisdom to guide you.  As the negative emotions start to surface and you connect with your breath, they will get grounded leaving you with clear mind with insights and wisdom. You would be able to take decisions in life with wisdom and not in the grip of emotions.

Your mind is stiff and hyper active and therefore it does not like to lose the control and this makes you anxious. The technique of OTT would be very helpful for you. The principle behind the same is that- breathing is inversely proportional to thoughts. So, observe your thoughts and begin to write them down after short intervals. This should diminish the thoughts and you will be able to connect to your breath and breath on your negative emotions. 

Also read the chapter Emotional Body in which there is a special mention of what is Anxiety/Worry/Panic. It will make your understanding deeper. 

Observing breath means to stay with the process of breathing. This means, paying attention to the breath as it goes in and comes out. We just witness it going in and coming out. The breath may be rapid, shallow, jerky but we do not alter the same, it would change by itself as we observe the same.

For e.g. Like you watch a movie on the TV in which you cannot change the scene, similarly, you do not change your breath. As you observe your breath, you might feel the following:

  1. Your breath may become slow and deep.
  2. Thoughts may reduce.
  3. You may reach at the state of being thoughtless and go into YN.
  4. If any emotion surfaces and you are able to connect to the breath, you may feel the periodicity, intensity and time interval of the same reducing.

For further guidance refer to the video on how to observe the breath and read pages 267 – 268 from the book Meditation-The Cure.

The common mistake people make is that they make a decision and set a target that they will observe their breath. At times they start to watch the clock and also time themselves. The moment you decide that you will observe your breath, you convert it into a thought. This thought will control all other thoughts and also control the emotions, and this is where you will fail in making breathing a Cure. Therefore, do not set a goal or time to observe the breath. Meditation is a gentle process, to be followed intuitively. Connect to the breath with curiosity, where will my breath take me today and your breath will open the path for you.
