Get high on your own supply

How to get high on your own supply:

  1. Get comfy - take a position most comfortable and safe to you (i.e. sitting or lying on the ground!). Ensure you can expand your lungs freely without any constriction.
  2. Breathe - Breathe in 30 power breaths. Pretend you're blowing up a balloon. Inhale through the nose/mouth, and exhale through the mouth in short but powerful bursts. Keep a steady pace, use your midriff fully, and close your eyes.
  3. Hold up - After 30 rapid successions, breathe in once more and fill the lungs to maximum capacity without force. Breathe out for as long as you can without force. Hold your breath until you experience the gasp reflex.
  4. Recover - Inhale to full capacity. Feel your chest expanding. When you're at full capacity, hold the breath for around 10 seconds - this indicates round one. The breathing exercise can be repeated 3 rounds after one another.
  5. Enjoy - After completing the breathing exercise, ensure you enjoy the feeling afterward. This feeling will increasingly be like meditation.

Good luck!
