PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS THE ONLY BREATHING TECHNIQUE THAT WE RECOMMEND.

 

Breathing is one of the primary signs of life. It is more important to us than almost anything else. If we need proof, we can ask ourselves the question, ‘Which am I willing to go without for an hour – breath, water, sunlight or food?’

Breathing has another significant function. It is a barometer read by our subconscious mind in an ongoing evaluation of our current life situation. When we feel threatened we hold our breath or breathe shallowly. When we feel at peace we breathe fully and slowly.

 

Full, slow breathing sends a message of serenity to our body even when we are stressed, making it a simple, gentle yet powerful stress management tool.

The breath acts as a bridge between the conscious and the unconscious. It helps loosen up stored blockages in our four-body energy system (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual), by working on all four levels at the same time. It charges the etheric body so it can accumulate life force (prana, chi, ki) which it circulates through our physical body.

 

Conscious connected breathing can bring into awareness not only our unconsciously held beliefs and emotions but also the relationships we have with our bodies, ourselves, those around us and our world. Through conscious connected breathing we can synchronise our bio rhythms with those of Gaia.

How is it done?

Begin with a full inhalation into the chest. Without pausing or holding your breath, immediately allow the exhalation to flow – without pushing it or holding it back. Completely expel all the air from your lungs.

As you breathe, consciously connect your breath so the inhalation and exhalation are linked at both ends and the breathing totally circular. There are no pauses between the inhalation and the exhalation, only one continuous loop of breath. The breathing is full and relaxed; the energy, smooth. Slowly you will find your own rhythm, probably faster and fuller than you are used to. Relax the exhalation, letting the air come out by itself. Refrain from trying to control the exhalation with your stomach, chest, throat or lips.

Do ten cycles of conscious connected breathing first thing in the morning and again at night before you go to sleep. An inhalation and an exhalation counts as one cycle. Before you begin, expel all the air from your lungs. Also expel all the air from your lungs around midday. A good time to practice Conscious connected breathing is before doing practises such as energetic hygiene and the nightly review.
