This is a mediation practically almost the same with the celebrated transcendental mediation (see e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fO3AnD2QbIg and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7ajEzVsuhg and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRSvW9Ml9DQ
The difference is that the sequence of inner soundless sounds in the meditation is not through a veda-culture mandram, which is chosen by some teacher for the one that meditates, but simply a inner-vocal sound like a musical note created by the inner voice of the one that meditates.
It seems that sound has the power of creating and healing. It may be that by sound we may create parts of our inner existence, and cure already existing parts of our existence. Inner-sound may have this power to our inner existence. It is known that through music the plants grow better and faster.
About types of breathing. Here are 8 types of breathing
This is the opposite of the abdominal breathing.
The main intent of the transcendental mediation, is inviting the immortal soul consciousness, as awareness of our current mortal situations.
The main intent of focusing to breathing of any type is , to be aware of an interrupted breathing , without gaps and without laps of being aware of breathing. It is an exercise of continuity of awareness , rather than an exercise of breathing .
1) We start the meditation by a sequence of 5 breaths, that each one is longer and deeper than the previous. We repeat it several times (e.g. 5 times at least).
In this way we pass from shallow and short breaths in every day activities to deeper and longer breaths of the meditation, that have more energy and are more powerful.
We may also imagine that we do not breath inside our body, and chest but that our breath waves in the center of the room we are,and away of our body. In this way we may make the breath easier. When the breath has become deep long and strong, we may bring it back inside our body, and imagine it as an elevator, that will lift the "heavy" feelings of the lower or upper part of our body and transmute them in to free happy feeling , lightness, relaxation etc or as burning flame that will burn a heavy wood in to volatile gasses in the air.
2) During this preliminary stage, we try to be aware of any inner distractions of the consciousness, that might as we say "steal our breath". We must insist and always return and repair breathing to the rich breath, we want to have. Even only at this early preliminary stage of the meditation, the mediation is a perfect tool to reinforce e,g, our diet or feeding intentions for the day, and re-assure in a clear way our action goals. If our daily goals include some desired habits of diet and feeding we must not forget than even when outside the time of the meditation, we get a compelling eating desire (which is not really a nutrition need of the body) then by breathing deeply several times we immediately give to the organism, in a more direct and faster way (compared to the process of eating) extra energy that he may need , and thus we surpass the not-real compelling eating desire.
Of course as it is standard in transcendental meditation we synchronize the inner-vocal sound with exhaling.
Besides lowering the frequency we may experiment with decreasing or increasing the volume of single interval note in 5 levels.
And besides frequency and volume we may experiment with the color of the inner-vocal sound, in other words utilize vowels like A, A, A, A, A or E, E, E, E, E or I, I ,I , I, I or O, O ,O , O, O , or U , U, U, U, U, etc as a vehicle of the frequency and volume. In other words always the same vowel for the sequence of 5 frequencies or 5 volumes. For more advanced practice we make combine different vowels to create our own convenient meaningless incantation word and mandram. And sometimes for fun I create meaningless yodelning-words (e.g. Hol-le-rin di du-dle di, din di di di du-dle do etc ) just to spell internally a yodeling melody. The power of inner incantations is greater than outer incantations , e.g. when it comes to directing the energy (also combined with guided inner imagery) through the inner sound to various parts of the body for energizing and healing purposes. And also an inner incantation may have more power than an outer voiced song which sings about a self that you want to create. And also we may combine in different ways colors and inner-images with the sounds. The guiding line is how to create a more FREE consciousness for also a more pleasurable meditation for the day.
It may seem as futile visualization, but it is not! There are well known experiments , that prove that even the 1st of these scales has effects on our abilities. E.g. concentrating at say an imaginary tangerine above and at some distance from the top of the head and then trying to read a text in from of us, focusing not on the words but on the lines and the spaces between the lines doubles the reading and comprehending speed!
We may correspond the lowest frequency to the largest cosmic scale or vice-versa. And we may also have meditations with only the sounds without the images.
If for some people the idea of cosmic scales is not attractive, they may utilize colors from the rainbow, ascending or descending in frequency, parallel to the ascending or descending inner-vocal sounds. The colors may also be less than the musical notes. E.g. Red, Yellow, Green, Blue , Violet , or Violet , Ciel, Yellow, Orange, or Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Ciel, Blue, Violet , etc
5) For more advanced practice we make combine in different ways colors and inner-images with the inner-sounds. The guiding line is how to create a more pleasurable meditation full of soul energy for the day and reassure and repair the ability for free inner-senses, inner-speaking and imagination creative abilities. It is also a method to repair ways of inner self-talking. If a way of inner-self-talking is like a predator on you, and instead of private it is exposed to undesirable other inner-listeners, here is a an opportunity to repair it, and find frequencies and method of inner talking that is really private , safe and energizing. All trees need roots and the roots must be hidden. If exposed to the light and air the tree dies. So is with our private self-talking , it must be only for us and hidden. But this meditation is also a method to control the self-talking and to realize when to have one and when not at all, as many things happen and are done better without inner self-talking at all. It is also a method to repair the habit of uniform and deep breaths as daily anxiety usually destroys the good breathing. And uniform and deep breath not only energizes better the body with oxygen, but also gives calmness and confidence.
The colors sequences, create a kind of unifying correlation of all our daily past or present visual experiences , and thus new ways of unities and positive synthesis of the experiences appear. And the unity in the experience is LOVE.
When the meditation is done in the state between being awake and sleeping (just before we fall to sleep in the night and just before we get up from sleeping in the morning), then producing inner-vocal sound and controlling it together with inner-vision images, we will create higher uniformity between our active-energetic function of speaking (later during the day) and rather pathetic function of looking (e.g. in the screen of the computer). Also we will discover of "looking" is controlling us or we are controlling it!
Also if such colors and sounds are emerging in our aether bodies , through this meditation, then by their different frequencies may energize different functionalities of our existence.
For beginners , they may start , with 2 or 3 only levels of frequencies, and 5-10 only minutes at the beginning. They may at the beginning, start with more than one time, short sequences of inner-vocal frequencies, and end when they practice more, with one only sequence of frequencies per meditation.
Such meditations as the above are not only of a) Emptying the mind and consciousness b) Concentrating on our physical bodily presence and breath. It is something more.
