Do You Ever Listen To The Sound Of Your Breath?
The New Year’s Resolution many people make is to improve their health. One simple way to do this is to become aware of your breath. Breath is much more important than most people realize…. As I was dying, my lung collapsed. When I woke up a ventilator was breathing for me. After I was taken off of the ventilator, my breath was very shallow. As my breathing improved, I became aware of the rhythm of my breath and it was very soothing to me and calmed my mind. It was as if my breath was the voice of my soul and it was telling me to breathe, and I did. I realized that the Vindictive Alcoholic Voice inside my head stopped. Right then and there my addiction died and I knew that I would live. Listening to your breath can improve your life. Effective breathing is the most important thing you can do for your:
• Spiritual Wellbeing
As Addicts, we are addicted to feeling like a victim. We have been telling ourselves the shame & blame stories for so long that we don’t even realize that we are letting our thoughts run our lives. Through the awareness of our breath we can transcend these malicious & destructive victim stories. When we identify them in this way they lose their power. Try becoming aware of your breath from time to time throughout your day. We unconsciously hold our breath in stressful and anxiety producing situations. When a bad thing happens, stop, for just a minute, and listen to your breath. It will give you time to respond rather than react. Shallow breathing poisons us. Conscious Breathing is a form of meditation and in certain studies, meditation has been shown to combat Alzheimer’s Disease. Breathing in this way has been proven to give you:
