From the thalamus, vagal input is transmitted to cortical areas Yoga poses 2nd chakra including the prefrontal, frontal, parietal, and occipital. The vagus nerves influence alertness, Yoga poses 2nd chakra attention, cognitive processes, emotion regulation, and stress response. Anxious patients are often desperate for the immediate relief they expect to find in a pill. It is helpful for the health care provider to reassure the patient and to show them that yoga breathing can alleviate anxiety within minutes. The sections below on coherent or resonant breathing and Ujjayi breathing describe simple practices that can be learned quickly. When patients experience rapid physical relaxation and mental calming, they become more motivated to work with their breath rather than become more dependent on medication. By voluntarily altering the pattern of breath, it is possible to influence emotional states Philippot, Gaetane, & Blairy, 2002. Neural pathways for breathing and emotion are intricately intertwined.
The map indicates a centre – the dark core. This symbolises our daily normal consciousness and could be described in Freud’s words as the ego function. A. Geel (1982) discusses two important attempts to illuminate the relationship between ego and ASC – or trance. It is based on the famous experiments with meditators which A.J. Deikman conducted in the 1960s, and the psychoanalytical theories of S. Ariete. Processes of cognition are here seen to be processes of increasing differentiation, articulation and interpretation as inputs and impressions are propelled from lower centres to higher centres of consciousness. What commences in lower forms of consciousness as fragmented, non-verbal and nebulous becomes final perception and articulation in the ego function of consciousness. In this context meditation (and ecstasy, creativity, intuition, spontaneity, rage) can be seen as a de-differentiation – a reversal – of these differentiation processes as the meditator moves from ego into ASC, as indicated on the map above. Moving into trance – de-differentiating – in this interpretation, means re-activating primitive, associative, pre-verbal cognitive processes423.
The implications of dimensions
So the overall idea is that these technologies move the mind out of the ego area (the centre of the circle) into somewhere in the larger circle area named trance’. Or, to put it differently, the overarching function of consciousness is either muted or just simply pushed away/ overridden by sub-systems of consciousness. In either event, it will be experienced as trance or ASC. The employment of a common denominator of trance does not indicate that it is all the same phenomenological experience occurring. On the contrary! The point is that these technologies will send the mind in very different phenomenological directions. Even when moving out of a given dimension such as drugs, you do not experience the same thing when taking alcohol, nerve pills or LSD! The idea of dimension also gives an idea of how much one moves into trance: if you stray too far on a given dimension the overall system will shut down and consciousness will move into a self protective coma. We are in an anaesthetised or cataleptic trance (no reaction to even strong stimuli, the autonomic nervous system shuts down to a minimum, a person incapable of action).
