Sitting on a mat with my legs crossed in large room with several other women is not typcially a setting I am comfortable in. This time was no different. The facilitator begins to talk about her journey from student to facilitator. She states one of the most profound experiences of her life was participation in her first Life Breath class. Hmm, that will not be my experience. The facilitator continues on to say as a Reiki master, psychic, and ordained minister and teacher of the metaphysical, profound experiences come with her territory, but Life Breath was of a higher level. More thinking, I can’t even get the hang of meditation. I want to go home. Why did I come to this class? I live just across the street. I want to go home.
Oxygen is a basic and vital need of every cell in our body. It is our life force. Oxygen is essential to any healing, fundamental to our digestive system, reduces stress hormone production, increases energy and improves sleep. There are many breath work healing disciplines. Pranayama is an ancient Hindu technique of regulating the breath. We all know exercise increases circulation and our breathing capacity. Regulated breathing is part of yoga. Therapeutic breath work is now being used in residential homes for addicted and traumatized.
Life Breath® Full Wave Breathing draws a lot of oxygen to the brain over a short amount of time (about hour). The unexpected experience for me may have been because my facilitator was Reiki master, psychic and teacher of the metaphysical. The only two descriptive words I will use are transcending and profound. Beyond that I do not want to risk sounding feeble, fake, foolish, fruity or just plain f*cked up.
You might have to experience this your self sometime. Let me know if you already have.
