In my abundance work, where I assist others in creating their own unique abundant life, one of my key tools is a very powerful breath technique called Transformational Breathing. However, I am still truly amazed by the power and effect of just one deep full belly breath provides every now and then to ones body. For me, to slow down or stop everything I’m doing for just one deep breath is pretty easy for the wave of peace that usually comes with it.
As I’m writing this, I’m on an airplane, and after just one deep full breath I found that my shoulders relaxed, I felt a bit calmer and clearer after a number of days of traveling. It is really great to remember your actual breath has incredible energizing and relaxing power. Most of us take our breath for granted and do not realize it is our bodies most important fuel. About 75% of our bodies fuel comes from the oxygen we take in! So, a deep breath is literally bringing more fuel into the body with a side effect of relaxation.
Try it now, just one breath……. Close your eyes, take a breath, deep into your belly first then expanding your lungs as fully as you can and let the exhale just relax completely………… Do you notice any difference?
One breath is a great tool to remember any time whether your waiting in line, running late, anxious about a meeting, transitioning from work, after a stressful phone call or just after waking up.
Amazing, one breath!
