It is quite a subtle process so it is difficult to explain but I will attempt to. I have actually been trying to teach a friend to do it to understand it better [kinky??], so far unsuccessfully. What it feels like I am doing is tensing the muscles located about an inch below the base of my skull, but very very subtly as if I had a pea between my fingers and was pressing it carefully without squashing it. If the tensing is done in a particular way [which I am really at a loss to describe], it triggers waves of an electrical sensation which is generally a precursor to the goose bumps. These waves are quite specific in their movement and direction. They begin at the base of the skull just above the muscle tensing area then radiate outwards to my upper back and shoulders, then to my arms and finally my legs [most strongly at the front of my thighs]. It also moves around my head in a wave, like I was putting on a tracksuit hood [but no goose bumps manifest there as far as I can tell except on my neck]. I can increase the intensity of these waves, and therefore the goose bumps, by pulsing the neck area I described above but it requires concentration and the electrical feeling is not necessarily pleasant. A side effect of this process is an increased heart rate and an adrenaline feeling like I had just been frightened or shocked. I can also create this adrenaline feeling independently of the goose bumps but again trying to describe how is tricky and beyond my understanding. Like CANNABINOID I also dont believe it is a supernatural process, it is definitely physiological. I dont practice yoga or meditate and have a healthy scepticism for many [not all] spiritual practices, but I am pretty in tune with my body and surroundings. I hope this makes some sort of sense, there are so many other things I want ask which may be cleared up by this, for example I suffer from sleep apnia but do not have the general profile of someone who would normally suffer from this condition and wonder somewhere if my sympathetic nervous system [which I presume should control my breathing whilst asleep], is in some way getting mixed messages from my conscious nervous system. [maybe Im just a control freak!]
when we activate VIG our body release epinephrine and norepinephrien which are basically the same thing, well these chemical break down the wall of our blood vessel, yes your read right...our chances of getting heart disease and cornary heart disease is very very good.
allright, so what is your experience and how sertain are you about those?and another interesting thing, could "the iceman" Wim Hof also do the same?he can control his body temperature due to meditation, and been carefully examined by scientists since he can intensify his immune system through maybe the same thing.who knows, he might could do more but won't make that public.
