Breath is a gift from our creator and allows us to experience our precious life.
“Proper breathing goes by many names. You may have heard it called diaphragmatic breathing, abdominal breathing, or belly breathing. When you breathe deeply, the air coming in through your nose fully fills your lungs, and you will notice that your lower belly rises. The ability to breathe so deeply and powerfully is not limited to a select few. This skill is inborn but often lies dormant. Reawakening it allows you to tap one of your body’s strongest self-healing mechanisms.
Why does breathing deeply seem unnatural to many of us? One reason may be that our culture often rewards us for stifling strong emotions. Girls and women are expected to rein in anger. Boys and men are exhorted not to cry. What happens when you hold back tears, stifle anger during a charged confrontation, tiptoe through a fearful situation, or try to keep pain at bay? Unconsciously, you hold your breath or breathe irregularly.” Excerpt from Harvard Health Publications
Breathing deeply helps us to get in touch with our emotions, which are storehouses of energy. When we can feel these emotions and allow them to flow, enormous amounts of physical energy will be available to us..
The quality of air we inhale is very important. At my home in Mill Valley, I am surrounded by a forest full of trees. The ability to access my Angels has been phenomenal. I now have new guides that have made themselves known to me. Did you know that the Angels imbue your oxygen molecules with answers to your prayers? I think this is quite ingenious, and another great reason to breathe deeply.
Oxygen is one of our most important nutrients. Without it, we would cease to live. Oxygen helps energize us and remove toxins from our bodies. Deep breathing also slows the heartbeat, and can lower or stabilize blood pressure.
- Throughout the day, pay attention to how deeply you breathe. Place a fun reminder on your computer, car or wherever you spend most of your time.
- Practice 5 minutes (or more) a day of intentionally breathing in peace, and exhaling love.
- Send your breathe into any tight areas of your body, such as your neck, shoulders or back and honor any feelings if they arise.
