As much as we may take breathing in and out for granted, if we’re conscious of our breathing, we can become healthier and happier people! By taking the advice of Jon Paul Crimi, one of the world’s foremost Breathwork specialists, you can decrease your stress, increase your consciousness, and begin to release many of the past traumas that reside deep inside you.
While we normally don’t have to think much about breathing, consciously breathing in a specific manner and with a particular intent can have an enormous effect on your life. In fact, many people find that in just one or two breathwork sessions, they feel better than they have in years, both physically and emotionally.
Here are 5 tips to help you with your own breathwork:
Try these directions for mindfulness of breathing, a basic concentration practice: When you’re ready to meditate, close your eyes and bring your attention to the motion of your breath as it enters and leaves your nostrils. Keep your focus at the nostrils, noting the full passage of each in-breath and out-breath from beginning to end. Don’t follow the breath into your lungs or out into the air; just watch its flow in and out of the nostrils. If you can, notice the subtle sensations of the breath as it comes and goes. Be aware of each in-breath and out-breath as it passes by the nostrils, just as the doorman watches each person who comes and goes through a door.
Since stress seems to come from so many avenues, so does stress relief. There are so many ways to handle it. Most people believe in a certain particular and personal favorite strategy for stress relief, but in my opinion the most efficient way would be to create an overall effective plan that includes many different ways of reducing stress instead of a particular favorite and suitable plan that would deal with stress from one's own individual angle.
