Breathing Peace Exercises

Our breath is the primary sign of vibrance and vitality. Worries, fear and panic directly affect and disrupt our breathing rhythm, so If we learn to breathe deep and fine in ordinary, peaceful times, the more we are able to manage our times of fear better.


The deeper and slower we breathe, the more stable and connected we will be, the quicker and more shallow we breathe the more tension and stress we feel.


Breathing and brain wave frequencies

Our normal breathing pattern which is usually present in active attention, but also present in states of tension, anxiety and stress is the the Beta brainwave frequency over 13Hz. This basic breathing pattern limits us, and makes us feel heavy and dispirited.


We all normally breathe to this pattered: inhale 1/2 - 1,  hold in 0,  exhale 1/2 - 1, hold out 0.


To energise and detox ourself, breathe out, exhale all that is stale and fearful and breathe in the radiant vitality of the universe and feel revitalisation.


Experience all the in-breaths as coming from the source of life and exhale all fear, stress and panic on the out-breaths. Practice this in any spare time throughout the day and deepen it by imagining our breath from coming in and out of every pore in our body.
