I DO FEEL HOPEFUL FOR MY FELLOW SHALLOW BREATHERS!
Since I have been part of the Kalcker Parasite Protocol [as featured in the book, Healing the Symptoms Known as Autism, by Kerri Rivera] I am often noticing how much easier [and pleasurable] it is for me to breathe. Easier to feel the desire to take some deep breaths throughout the day. It is less and less of an effort, happens much more spontaneously, more frequently. I am without doubt that Conscious Breathing is an enjoyable and necessary adjunct for any kind of healing. This is true for everyone, on whatever road they are taking to get there. Hope you read the rest.
WE OFTEN TEACH WHAT WE NEED TO LEARN
It is very confusing for some people to hear me admit, especially as a yoga teacher, that I did not find it comfortable, natural, or enjoyable to breathe. Not surprisingly, I found it hard to teach breathing to others. What do you mean you did not like to breathe? Well, it is more of a sense of annoyance when people would bring up the importance of Conscious Breathing in healing. One more thing to remember! What a very telling response. Hello, this one here has spent many days breathing shallowly. The Breath, an amazing gift, is so intrinsic to our existence. Annoyed is just how I felt when Conscious Breathing was reminded to me, recommended, and urged for me to do. Why annoyance? Well, it is easy to feel annoyed when nerves are frayed from the exposure to a very unfriendly internal environment. One that is oxygen deprived.
I’LL BREATHE WHEN I GET IT ALL DONE… A SIGH IS BETTER THAN NOTHING?
Breathing more deeply is a distraction from what is “really” important, like getting things done. Are you one of those people that feels better for checking one more thing off your “to do list”? The beauty and release of deep tension from the breath is not understood or felt by most of us who live that way. The Breath is not recognized, or deeply appreciated, as the extremely necessary, invisible life line of energy that it is. We enter the world looking for our breath. We leave the world because it is no longer there, or maybe because it is no longer needed.
WE DETOXIFY MOSTLY THROUGH OUR BREATH
It is true that our major way to detoxify, on paper, is through Breathing. Unfortunately, the condition of our air, indoors and outdoors, does not inspire deep relaxed breathing. Also, the lack of awareness about breathing creates a completely unaware and pretty ignorant population. So much time staring at cell phone, computer, play station and TV screens creates very shallow breathing. The focus is outside of us, not within. Staring at a screen does not connect people to their Breath. Most importantly, in this world we all live, it is unlikely that deep breathing ALONE can not detoxify an unhealthy body by itself. Is it possible? I would not close my mind to it. What I can say for sure is that Conscious Deep Breathing certainly will expedite the process of any kind of healing. Physical and emotional. Emotional for sure.
I know for damn sure that most people do not know anything about the importance of Conscious Breathing for healing. It is so very important. If you do not consciously breathe you are putting great pressure on all organs and body systems. At a certain point, years of not breathing enough, exposure to environmental toxin, poor diet, etcetera causes a backlog of toxic waste to accumulate throughout our bodies. At that point breathing is just barely passing as a rudimentary body function. More like sniffing than breathing. A function that is performed unconsciously. Onethat is taken way for granted. Without breathing, quite obviously, we can not survive. To breathe deeply is to flourish. Breathe more often and know you are doing the best you can for yourself in this present moment.
WHY WOULD A PARASITE PROTOCOL MAKE BREATHING EASIER?
A Cyclical Detox Program is designed to help the Organs of Elimination work more efficiently. To take pressure off of all Systems of the body. Behavior that once felt normal begins to feel not so normal. The robotic response to do more, think more, buy more, talk more, becomes less helpful. The idea of being in the present moment suddenly makes real sense. It is not only an idea in a book by Eckardt Tolle [ The Power of Now, A New Earth and others]. Breathing is one way of connecting to the present moment that benefits us physically and mentally. Conscious Breathing gives the word “Soul” a meaning you can feel for yourself. Soul is no longer some religious, or spiritual concept. Like Breathing, our soul becomes part of who we are.
TEACHING BREATH WORK IS AN ART.
From a Yoga point of view: Donna Farhi is an author [The Breathing Book] and Yoga Teacher. There are many others. This is a book I happen to like.
