Synchromysticism

Feeling in Tune with Yourself and the World: Just Breathe?

I wrote about attending a screening of Bill Bennett's movie
'PGS; Intuition Is Your Personal Guidance System' down in Byron Bay in my last post -
Storage & the Bandit?
That screening was put on by pod-caster Guy Lawrence, who I only discovered when stumbling across a podcast he had done with Bill at Guy's 'Let It In' podcast.
Music, Vibration & the Secret Language of the Heart?
I listened this morning to Guy's current podcast interview with Niraj Naik, who is a trained chemist who can legally dispense prescribed drugs to people who have a doctor's referral, but has cured himself from a devastating illness through the use of breath work.
Not that I have been looking into SOMA breath work, but I have been thinking of getting into Stan Grof's breathing exercises, as a natural way to trip out without using drugs -
What is it with Stan Grof, Me and Synchronicity?
Guy's own story is worth having a listen to, too -
Feeling in tune with yourself and the world
A few weeks ago I suggested to Guy that Osher Günsberg might make a good guest to interview, as Osher has been very open about his mental health issues in his own podcast and book about his nervous breakdown.
The book I mentioned reading in my last post was a fictional story about a bloke who owned a self storage facility who had mental health problems and was always going on and off his meds.
Just after I wrote my last post I went to bed and was about to listen to a podcast when the latest podcast from Osher popped up on my iPad and since it was only a 10 minute long "checking in" podcast I had a listen -
The Osher Günsberg Podcast Checking In - August 2
In his latest podcast Osher tells his audience about going back on meds and working on a TV show called 'The Masked Singer'.
Behind the Persona?
Nicole Kidman as Alice in 'Eyes Wide Shut'
Osher also talks about a "horrible noise coming out of the engine of the car on a long road-trip" analogy in regards to mental health and taking meds.
In the book 'Disappearing Off the Face of the Earth' the main character takes his van into the middle of Australia while ignoring the grinding noise coming from his van as he motors along the highway in an effort to reach his destination. 
Osher also mentions having a guest on his upcoming Monday show who is going to talk about electric mobility scooters and in the book 'Disappearing Off the Face of the Earth' the last self storage defaulter was a woman who sold electric mobility scooters and stored her excess stock in her storage shed, which is the main reason this guy is driving his van into the middle of the Australian outback to find out how she disappeared ... off the face of the earth.
Life is a Journey for Young and Old Fools Alike?
Life is one strange trip it seems ... drugs, or no drugs I think.
Just breathe and enjoy the journey?

Soma: never been aware of that word until we watched a few episodes of Another Life on Netflix.

Yeah, I'm not at all familiar with the practice.
This is the first time I've really taken any notice, but I can't see myself getting into it unless my colon plays up like Niraj's did.
The last time I really got into a breathing exercise because of stress turning my breathing into panicky shallow breaths from the worries in my life at the time it was called smoking:-)
But I have since given that exercise up for the sake of my future health and bank account balance, ironically.
