Box Breath

Breath is literally your life source, don’t underestimate the power of focusing on your breath. When you can control your breath, you can control your thoughts. When you can control your thoughts, you can be thoughtful about your actions. Think about how powerful that is!

Lengthen your spire, close your eyes, and come into your space. Three deep cleansing breaths at your own pace – see Yoga Breath.

Begin the box breath by selecting a number. I usually use 3 for joy, 5 for change or 7 for connection to spirit. Suppose you select 3, you will inhale for a count of 3, hold at the top of the inhalation for 3 heartbeats, exhale for a count of 3, hold at the bottom of the exhalation for 3 heartbeats. Keep following this box breath, equal inhalations, pauses for heartbeats and exhalations for at least three iterations. Play with with different counts to see what feels the most natural or soothing for you.

Reflecting for a moment, when was the last time you felt your own heartbeat, your own internal rhythm? When you control your breath and tune into your heartbeat, you are calibrating yourself, bringing yourself back to a neutral point.
