Breathing Is Not Just About Air (part 2)

Last week, I shared about one of the important aspects of breathing. Breathing out. Today, let's talk about what happens as we breathe in.

When we breathe in we are filling up our lungs with air. That air is then able to enter the bloodstream and sustain life. The deeper we breathe the more oxygen in our blood and the better our bodies' function.

So, let's practice for a minute. Make sure you are sitting up straight, give your body all the space it needs for your lungs. You can even raise your shoulders slightly. Hold them up slightly; we aren't using our shoulders to breathe this time. We will use our bellies.

Fill in the bottom of the lungs and then pay attention to the air filling up to the tops of the lungs. Now breathe out as much as you can so you can fill up with more air next time. Now that you have done that we are going to fill up the bottom of the lungs and make sure to fill up the back of the lungs as we go. As humans, we tend to forget that we can use the back of our lungs too. When you breathe out allow your tummy to squeeze in to push out as much as you can. Take one more full deep breath in, filling your lungs as much as you can and breath out.

Chances are you will be breathing a little better now even without thinking about it.

Just like letting go of the breath takes negative energy with it, bringing in fresh air is bringing in fresh, positive energy. The more we breathe deep the more we can bring in positive energy without even thinking about it. We can, of course, take that a step further and actually intend to bring in positive energy.

Imagine as you breathe in that you are breathing in light. This light is filling you up. You can keep breathing light in with each breath until you are full. You can use this same idea to breathe in different colors.

Imagine the color red coming into your body. Let it go wherever it wants to go in the body, and then breathe out the negative. Now breathe in orange and let it go wherever it wants. It may go to the same place and it may go somewhere else. Breathe out the negative. Continuing the same way with yellow, green, blue, purple, white, pink, silver, gold and any other color that comes to mind. You can ask yourself what color is needed and breathe that in.

You can do the same thing with music. Breathing in the notes of the scale or as you are listening to music breathe in the energy of the music. Please pick positive music for this activity.

If you have a painful spot in your body, you can breathe positive energy right into that spot of the body. Sometimes pain is caused by negative energy and sometimes it is caused by not enough energy. As we breathe in energy it will fill up and push out any negative energy that you can send away on your breath.

There is so much that happens with the breath and breathing deeply will train your body to take in more air, release more negative and bring in more positive.

Join me next week as we talk about the third aspect of breathing that I would like to discuss.
