The Power of Conscious Breathing
There is no greater gift that we can give ourselves, and therefore, give the world than to learn the power of the breath when connected to the consciousness, to intention and to Love. To transform anything, the breath must be involved. To heal the body, awaken the spirit and enlighten the mind, the breath must reach an area of our Being that it had not been circulating through just a moment prior. Integration of any thought process, revelation, or inspiration must be “breathed” into existence and integrated into our cellular structure physically before it can ever find its way into improving our actual life experience.
For years research has shown that we can generate an entirely different physiological state through conscious use of the breath than happens with ‘ordinary breathing’. Heart rate can be slowed, blood pressure can drop, body chemistry balances itself and electromagnetic fields which control healing and cellular generation are shifted by merely bringing consciousness to how we breathe.
The Gurus of Consciousness and Spirituality have spoken for eons of the ‘Breath of God’, ‘Breath of Life’ and Pranayama techniques for enlightenment, all pointing us toward the understanding that the breath is fundamental to our very connection to this dimension of Life, and that consciousness around that breath awakens us to our True Selves.
In my 25 years of clinical experience and group seminar experience in working with healing on every level of the human being, I have found that masterful breathing has changed the lives of tens of thousands of people. Being aware of how to breathe and most importantly ‘where to breathe from’ and ‘where to breath to’ has not only changed the health and well being of my patients and workshop participants; but it has also transformed their very idea of ‘who they are and how they fit into the world’.
There is a Universal pulsation that is present in all that exists. It pulsates in a rhythm that supersedes the heartbeat, and the Ayurvedic pulse. In fact it expresses as a combination of all pulse forms united. The human system is influenced by this pulse and is in fact built upon its provision of information through the wave form itself. The Human Being manifests this pulse through the multiple layers of consciousness toward physical form through the breath. By breathing with awareness we can begin to sense and feel the tremendous transmutable capacity that we posses and the related ability we have to change our life experience by changing the vibrational frequency in which we operate. The breath allows us to expand beyond our physical limitations. It is foundational to our experience and to our expression in the world. Without the breath we are not even able to exist on this plane of Reality. Five minutes without it, would certainly change reality as we know it!
When we breathe with consciousness, we begin to ‘wake up’ to this larger perspective within ourselves, if even only on an experiential level. When we breathe with awareness that we are not merely physical creatures, but rather we span the multiple dimensions of Creation, we can begin to awaken to the aspects of ourselves that represent the ‘rest of who we are’ on a non-physical level. Our Spiritual Truth. When we begin to do this, our lives change, our relationships change, our ideas change and life unfolds more gracefully.
When people learn to breathe with conscious awareness together, the collective energies have an exponentially greater impact on the group and even outside or beyond the group doing the breathing. It sets a rhythm in motion that resonates with a bandwidth that the entire species is impacted by; animating life to higher and higher vibrations all the time.
