“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.”
― Thích Nhất Hạnh, Stepping into Freedom: Rules of Monastic Practice for Novices
Life has its unique stressors, from extreme traumatic events to more pervasive lifestyle considerations, such as performance anxiety. Whether the personal challenges you face are severe or small, there is a powerful remedy available through breathwork techniques.
There is a direct relationship to the way we breathe and the emotional states we find ourselves in. When we understand that each emotion we experience has a corresponding breath pattern, we can begin to use our breathing to release negativity and trauma, and increase our alertness, peace, and general feelings of well-being.
The process offered by Breathflow Wellness is simple: accessing and harnessing the natural healing power of our innate life-force energy by utilizing specific patterns of breathing (known as the Transformational Breath®) to maximize oxygenation of the body and brain. Oxygen(O2), being our #1 energy source, creates many beneficial results when it is introduced in abundance to the body system. There are many ways to increase O2, including hyperbaric chambers, ozone therapy, supplementation, etc.; however, the easiest and most empowering method for achieving results is to put the power into the hands of the individual by teaching them to learn to breath more effectively and how to use these techniques to balance and enhance their experience of life.
Oxygenating the body and brain has a powerful effect on the nervous system and consequently the emotions. The power of Transformational Breath is that it works on the subconscious root of any stored trauma or negative issues. By practicing a particular pattern of breathing that reinforces healthy emotional responses, one can clear the held energy of past traumas, and be more effectively present to deal with new challenges as they arise. The end result of Transformational Breath is to unlock deeper layers of our potential, which can come in the form of intuitive insight, greater creative flow, and general feelings of well-being and clarity of deeper life purpose.
One of the greatest aspects of using breathwork for healing and thriving is that it is readily accessible to us—anytime and any place. One simply needs to find a quiet space to practice the technique of Transformational Breath for 5 to 15 or more minutes.
It is easy to learn how to do the technique and participate in the daily practice of “100 Breaths to Joy,” a 5 minute session that can be done at a time most convenient to you. There is also the possibility of doing a longer session on your own after the technique is mastered and old habits of dysfunctional breathing become more apparent and easier to release. It is recommended to have a number of facilitated sessions before this is attempted, so that you don’t fall back into old dysfunctional patterns before you have fully anchored in the pattern of healthy, deep, circular breathing.
