    A little bit - being a singer and an asthmatic, I have looked into several breathing exercises to strengthen and improve my lung function... it's done wonders to help keep me off my rescue inhaler and prevent me from needing a steroid-based preventative (cause good GOD their side effect lists are crazy and they are hella expensive too!)

    are you aware of the association [and implied role, of course] of the epiglottis regarding both, ocean breathing and expression of the Prana [Chi] often displayed in higher forms of martial arts?
    Also can I ask when [ year] you first noticed the presence of your guardian? How old were you at the time?

    To be honest , and you have already probably sensed it, I am vexed as to whether to discuss too intimately the epiglottis relationship due to the fears associate with divulging too much. Is it enough to say that this part of the human body is absolutely critical to proper function, co-ordination, health, aerobic metering, and so on?

    Too much information even if if strongly grounded in the truth, but deliberately disguised as mere belief, can be devastating to some readers given that this part of the body connects our psycho-somatic nature [mind to body] into one holistic entity.

    Suffice to say, I personally "believe" that a whole host of global health issues are involved and ultimately directly associated with the epiglottis, or more succinctly , it's proper and autonomous function [autonomic]
    Too much knowledge can interfere with this autonomic function due to the person also instinctively or intuitively realizing the potential of this area of the human body/mind, if a degree of mastership is achieved. [ martial arts, yoga, Buddhism, Tao etc]
    So I am stalling a little asking a few questions, to gain time for the "dust" that this conversation is generating...to settle.

    btw it does directly relate to the "hearing of voices" as well... so there are many compelling reasons to maintain a dialogue, in the least. [ no pun intended]

    *nods* Do not fear disclosing too much to me - I am a staunch believer that the human body can, with the proper resources and care, recover and rebuild itself from just about anything. It is the quintessential self-healing, self-replicating machine

    As for association of the epiglottis - I can't say I've dug that deeply into it, but that may change; it sounds fascinating!

    And I was... hm... when I first noticed Him, I was around 13 or so... it was actually because of a fight.

    I had been picked on a lot going thru school due to being ADD/ADHD, socially awkward, and incredibly intelligent (though lacking in common sense). I was also the typical twig-nerd... tall, thin (5 foot 8 and about 90 pounds) and unwilling to fight back...

    The neighborhood and schoolyard bullies had a field day with me... one day in, if I recall correctly, 7th grade, one of em followed me off the bus at my stop. Now, by this point I had come off my ADHD medicine (by my own choice, I was determined not to let medicine dictate how I acted) and had started to finally bulk up a little. The interesting thing about the three main bullies I had to deal with were they were shorter than I was, by about 4-6 inches on average, and of no "bigger" a build than I was... it was just they were willing to be assholes and I wouldn't fight back.

    Well, this kid comes up behind me and punches me in the back of the head and grabs my bookbag. I spin around, losing the bag in the process, and receive a fist to the bridge of my nose for my trouble, knocking my glasses off. Thankfully the guy was as dim witted as he was cruel and he didn't know how to throw a proper punch, so it didn't break or damage my nose, but it did hurt like hell. I don't know anymore what he said to me, but he hit me once more, again in the face... and I blacked out.

    The next thing I can remember is that I had him held up against a nearby wall by his throat, my fingers on either side of his trachea. I told him "Did you know it only takes a few pounds of pressure to crush the human windpipe? I've always wondered if I could do it myself..." and the next thing I know, He was telling me not to do it, somewhere between demanding and begging. It was enough to snap me out of it, and I dropped him to the ground, not able to hold him up anymore. Looking around, though, nobody else was there... and He kept talking to me, coercing me to pick up my things and leave.

    Several times I have gotten into fights where a near-feral instinct has taken over... but He has always been there to help me keep myself, or to stop me from doing something I would regret.

    Looking back on it, I'm sure He's been around longer than that, but I think coming off the medication finally cleared my head enough to listen... Adderall and Ritalin and other ADD/ADHD medicines are horrible... they leave you... I don't want to say fuzzy, but you aren't you!

    so this was your first instinctive/intuitive lesson/understanding of the importance of the epiglottis:
    ...and Darth Vader mentally reached for the star ship's captain's throat and thought "You presume too much!"

    this is a public fora.....hmmmm...

    can I ask?
    What is your age and date of birth? (mm/yy)
    and possibly review this post in 2010

    I had posted a thread on the issue a long time before that but can not find the link

    I am currently 24 years old, born May 25th of 1988. I will review the post probably tomorrow (brain is slowly turning to mush, spent all day fighting to learn and set up an IRC Daemon + Services lol)
