Meditation Type: Breathwork
Level: Beginner/Intermediate
Best Used: To relax the mind, body and nervous system

This technique is incredible for me in relieving tension in my body and calming erratic emotions.

COMPLETE BREATH

  • Sit in a comfortable position or lie down in Corpse Pose
  • Relax; close your eyes
  • Exhale completely; inhale slowly and deeply through your nose.  Allow your stomach to expand like a balloon when you inhale.  Fill up your chest and upper lungs as you sip in your breath.
  • Hold your breath; exhale slowly through your nose; squeezing out all of the stale air.
  • If it helps, count your breaths to maintain a rhythm; inhale to a count of 3, hold your breath for 9, exhale to a count of 6.  Once you feel good with that, increase to inhaling for a count of 5, holding your breath for a count of 15, and exhaling for a count of 10.
  • Repeat 5-10 times.
POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS:
These can be repeated like a mantra over and over while doing the breath technique:
  • I drink deeply from the well of life.
