How Important Is Our Breath?
Well, of course, it’s necessary for LIFE itself!! BUT do we breathe just to exist or do we breathe in such a way that we are fully vibrantly and radiantly ALIVE!!
If we live in a negative emotional, mental, physical or spiritual state our breath may be very shallow, fast and on the surface, it may only reach our lungs. The result we will get is a half lived life full of tension, stress, anxiety and worry. We become almost robotic, on auto pilot, our energy becomes dull, we feel empty and unfulfilled.
Mostly we are so busy doing life and distracting ourselves to notice the cycle of our breath. The only time some people get to breathe deeply is when they visit the doctor and are told to breathe in and then out, and that feels uncomfortable and unusual, almost awkward
STOP for a moment and place your left hand on your chest and your right hand on your lower belly and breathe. Watch the cycle, on an in breath which hand rises and how far.
The energy in our body flows up the spine, through our heads and down our fronts.
That’s a given. We can however control the flow and vitality of this energy with conscious breathing.
NOTE the position of your tongue. The tip of the tongue should be gently touching the roof of your mouth just behind your front teeth. This allows the energy in the body to flow freely, it joins the circuit between the back upward flow and the front downward flow.
If you are finding that you are battling to focus, calm your mind, fidgeting or excessively chatting, getting frequent headaches or tension in the jaw, you will generally find that you may be holding your mouth open and your tongue is not closing the circuit.
In a full life enhancing breath we inhale beyond the chest and stomach area into the lower belly and right down to our pelvis. We can even visualise the breath moving all the way down to our toes.
The exhale, also as full as possible, flows up the back following the path of the energy through the body. And so the cycle continues. At first this may seem forced, but so be it, eventually it will become natural.
We cannot breathe deeply and remain closed to life. Deep breaths into the lower belly cause the belly to soften and open. Deep, complete breaths remove our armouring, life softens, light enters and love flows more freely into our body and our lives. Our cells change their vibration, they begin to emit higher frequencies of light. We become RADIANT!
Surrender yourself fully to be moved and breathed by love
