As a small child you could flip instantly between laughter and tears. You’ve watched children do the same thing, jumping from tears to happiness. A toy, a bottle, or a video will distract them and, in an instant, they’re happy.
They know something you’ve forgotten. It’s your best kept secret and you’ve hidden it so well, even you can’t find it! Take a deep breath while we journey back to your future to learn how to unleash your hidden power house and help fill your life with the abundance you so richly deserve.
What unique physiological function do you ignore every day that you can’t live without?
The answer is as simple as blowing a bubble. In fact, drop by a toy store and purchase a bubble blowing kit. It’s a great place to start. Nope, I haven’t lost my mind and neither have you! Now – what do you do when you blow a bubble?
That’s it. You take a deep breath and release it – consciously – blowing just enough air into the liquid to expand the bubble but not burst it. Congratulations. You’ve just discovered your body’s most ignored, unique physiological function – the power house of breathing. Without it, nothing else matters.
Breathing is one of the most fundamental survival instincts. We breathe into our lungs, the oxygen in the air passes into tiny air sacs, then into our blood stream, then to our cells – that ENERGY keeps our metabolism doing great things. We breathe out carbon dioxide, a waste gas.
This is Part I of your Best Kept Secret but there are more hidden treasures. Do you believe breath is just a mechanical function of inhales and exhales keeping you vertical? Is it only about life or death?
Personal experience suggests there’s more to it – sobbing from grief, the trembling breath of anger, holding one’s breath with intense emotions. Remember the heaving infant who stops when the diaper is changed? The significance of our breath goes far beyond metabolic function.
How’s your breathing these days?
- Do you hold your breath when listening?
- Do you hold your breath when you’re uncomfortable?
- Do you hold your breath when you’re uncertain?
Any “yes” answers? Try this fun and simple way to restart your power house and experience more of life’s abundance today. Do this consecutively while staying seated. Repeat AM/PM.
Breathe in slowly, shape lips into an (oo) and slowly blow an imaginary —
- Golf ball size bubble. Count to 10 slowly as you blow. Rest.
- Baseball size bubble. Count to 15 slowly as you blow. Rest.
- Basketball size bubble. Count to 20 slowly as you blow. Rest.
Next time we’ll dig deeper into your Best Kept Secret and the really cool connections between your breath and emotions and the things you create in life.
Until then, enjoy the power house of your breathing and the abundance of life you so richly deserve.
