| Conscious connected breathing is the
easiest way to bring your focus to the present moment. As you
bring all your attention to your breathing, feel your abdomen rise with
each inhale and fall with the exhale. Feel the breath as it passes your
lips. Listen to the sound of your breathing. Our breath is one thing
that we always have with us that can bring us to instant peace. As we
continue to breathe without pause between the inhale and exhale, the
oxygen floods our system. Super oxygenated blood is now racing through
our body. As our brain gets flooded with the oxygen rich blood,
seratonin and endorphins are released. It feels good. As we continue
the steady rhythm, our body starts to tingle with all the intense
energy that we're drawing in. We are steadily drawn into a deeper state
of total relaxation - complete surrender. From this place, everything
makes sense. Joy comes with new clarity.
There are many other reasons to start a
regular routine of conscious connected breathing. Increased energy is a
big one. When you consider that we get at least 70% of our energy from
breathing, it's no wonder that so many people are lacking the energy
that they would like. The most obvious reason to open up our breathing
is to achieve better health. Please refer to the Medical Info
page for more information.
Although it may be possible to start
these exercises on your own, there is no replacement for a facilitated
session. Find a professional in your
area or join us for a Breath workshop or
weekend to help make the initial opening of your breathing.
So here is the Formula to stay in
joy when any uncomfortable feeling arises. First, notice how you are
breathing and then ask these two questions;
1. Do I want to feel good?
2. What is missing in this exact
If you find something missing, ask
yourself if you really need it in this moment to survive.
