I think the Breath of Fire technique is mostly seen
to be a cleansing technique to add oxygen to your system
and release tension. If this results in doing just that
I guess we could say it is safe and beneficial. But if it
doesn't deal with your paranoia, as I have to assume it has
not, then for that purpose it isn't functional. As a medical
professional I have to point you first to seek a Psychiatrist
and a Psychologist. There are medications and therapies that
perhaps offer a much greater potential to help with your
stated issue than just meditation alone. But I definitely
feel that meditation is a tremendous help towards good
mental and emotional health. Being in touch with your "Inner
Witness" that recognizes paranoia enveloping you in its
suffering-causing grasp is a beneficial step towards responding
to those moments in a non-reactive observing without fear way.
And medication, therapy, and meditation all can help this
process be your default setting.
I also suggest considering trying different techniques than Kundalini-based ones. I previously pointed you towards the
Daily Lama technique and I feel Affirmations and other methods
may also be beneficial. The way to judge if what you are
doing is "good" is to see if it brings you peace. And if
it takes your peace away, it is "bad". The Breath of Fire
seems to have made you paranoid about its safe use and
thus is probably....for you .... not good. For others, it
may be the best thing they ever do. But for sure, to know
which technique is the right one for you, you must actually
"try it - you'll like it".
I wish you well.
Peace and blessings,
