Liberating your Breath
How we are breathing can influence our feelings, thoughts and perceptions of life and the world. Just as what’s going on in the world and in our lives can influence our thoughts, feelings and the quality of our breath. By consciously choosing to support the fullness and depth of our breath we can have an influence on our feelings and thoughts and how we perceive what’s happening. This can give us a greater capacity to choose how we respond.
All that to say, the more fear is present the more we tend to hold our breath and breathe shallow which gives signals to our nervous system that we’re not safe, which disturbs our emotions and leads to our minds trying to take over and get things under control. Also, when people around us are afraid and not breathing well, we may automatically entrain to their breathing pattern without even realizing it.
Here is a meditation/healing session I did called Liberating Your Breath. If you’d like some support to find your breath you’re welcome to listen in:
