The breath is something that is often taken for granted. Many people fail to recognize the importance of this simple activity. Because of this, the breath has become shallow and insignificant for the average person.
The breath is life force. Through the breath we connect the mind, body and spirit. Has it ever occurred to you why most people tell you to take a deep breath when you are upset? The breath is a powerful force that controls just about everything in our lives. The more disconnected we are from our breath, the less alive we feel. When we take ownership of our breath, we are taking ownership of our life. Begin to control, direct and harmonize your breath, and you will collapse back into your true nature.
“when you own your breath,
nobody can steal your peace.”
Deep breathing provides the body with more oxygen which leads to more energy. It also detoxifies and releases toxins. The number of benefits are truly endless.
Here’s a quick and easy breathing exercise:
As you inhale, lengthen the spine and engage the core
When your lungs are completely full, hold this breath for 3 seconds
Slowly exhale fully, relax your shoulders then hold for 3 seconds
Repeat this cycle for a few minutes a day. Watch the relationship you have with your breath transform.
