Reconnecting To The Self Using Pranayama Techniques (Infographic)

by Mindvalley June 2, 2017

Have you ever felt like there was a higher, more empowered version of yourself that you’ve only ever caught glimpses of?

Do you wish you could find ways of reconnecting with this long-forgotten self?

Divine power exists in all of us but so many of us don’t feel connected to that power.


Well, the traumas we experience in this world sometimes bury our connection to higher Source energy. But when we are connected to Source, we’re more creative, more intuitive, more trusting, more loving, and more peaceful.

Deborah King is a spiritual teacher, healer, and New York Times bestselling author who woke up her divine abilities after healing from her traumas.

And now she helps other people heal themselves and access their gifts in her Mindvalley course, Be A Modern Master.

3 Tips For Reconnecting With Oneself

Reconnecting with your higher self is something that can be taught and learned.

And if you’re not sure if you’ve ever connected with your higher self? Not to worry.

It’s easy to lose sight of who we truly are, especially after undergoing a significant life stressor, like loss or heartache.

But there are a number of techniques you can use to touch base with your higher self.

Here are three tips you can use for reconnecting with who you truly are.

1. Take a few mindful breaths

The quickest and easiest path inward is through the breath.

So, simply taking a few moments to focus on mindful breathing can be tremendously helpful.

When we feel lost in the shuffle, shivering with anxiety, or quaking with rage, we need only return to the breath.

The breath can be used as an anchor, pulling us within and tethering us to the present moment.

And all at once, we are able to reconnect with the deeper core of who we are.


2. Journal

Take the reconnection process a step further by jotting down some thoughts and ideas.

Meeting yourself on paper is a challenging but worthwhile experience. On paper, you may find things come to light that you didn’t know you were trying to avoid.

Find a quiet room, put on some music you enjoy, and sit down with some paper and a pen.

Or, if you prefer a keyboard, why not start up a personal blog?

Even if you’re the only one that ever reads it, a personal blog can be a place for you to vent and express yourself in safety and peace.

What you discover about yourself in the process of keeping a personal journal may surprise you.

3. Connect to your body

We don’t give our bodies enough credit.

They are the medium through which we get to experience the world around us. Our bodies move and carry us through the world. And we often don’t treat them with the kindness and respect they deserve.

So, find a physical activity you enjoy to reconnect with yourself through your body.

Go on a nature walk. Do some yoga. Practice some pranayama techniques.

Find a way to open the lines of communication between you and your body.

4 Mudra And Pranayama Techniques To Reconnect With The Self

Clearing the channel for connection to your inner self helps you connect to others and to Source.

—Deborah King, Author of Mindvalley’s Be A Modern Master Program

Mudra and pranayama techniques have been used for centuries to raise consciousness and strengthen connections to the Divine.

These ancient techniques can transform your spiritual practice and help you connect with the self.

They work by channeling your prana (life force) to flow freely through your body. This gives you energy and space to express your true self.
