Hello, my name is Jim and I need some help to understand what is going on with my body. I have been doing Wim Hof breading for 5 months and when I do that my body temperature starts rising and everyday I feel it more and more after round 4 my body feels like I am in sauna or that sweat?I am afraid of something bad can happen to me. And how I can control it. If you can help me to understand what is going on. And what I have to do.Room temperature where I do breathing is +17C.I start breathing from the abdomen, chest and then the head. 4 sets of 55 breaths.

Hello Jim

Practices involving the breath stimulate the energy in the body and can lead to the awakening of what yogis call kundalini energy. Wim Hof is quite an intense practice. It includes holding the breadth for fairly long intervals. Yogis call this kumbhaka and it is a powerful practice designed to get the energy going.

I guess the two most important things you need to know are:
1. Doing breathing practices on their own is risky. The safe way to approach them is to establish an effective meditation practice first. After that, breathing practices can be introduced gradually. It is true that some people, like Wim Hof himself, have been able to practice intensely without getting into energy problems. Based on their own experience, they advise other people to do the same. But it is not safe for everyone, and painful energy awakenings are fairly common.
2. With any energy practice, it is important to self pace, i.e. you build it up slowly, according to your own level of sensitivity (different people have different sensitivity levels). When you start to experience discomfort, you slow down or pause the practice altogether so that things don't get out of control.

Hope this helps. Take care.

Yes, that is a good idea. The energy is ascending and, without a meditation practice, you could have a very unpleasant ride.

If you want to continue working with your energy, build a meditation practice for a few months to a year. Then you will start to develop the awareness necessary to do energy work safely.

If you click on the "Deep meditation" link on the left, you will find a lesson that teaches a very effective meditation technique.

Take care.
