Conscious Breathing to Heal Diseases

To learn to breathe consciously, you must first understand what kind of awareness. Today this definition is carried like a piece of paper and everyone is recommended to apply it in everyday life to be happy, healthy, successful and so on.

Researchers from American Mindfulness Research Association (AMRA) explain the word mindfulness this way. The state, process, and practise of remembering to observe from moment to moment with openness and without automatic patterns of previously conditioned thoughts, emotions, or behaviour.

You can never stay in the here and now moment forever. You are not a stone, but a living being, which means you are forever changing.

Our minds will always run back and forth to the past, sometimes overlapping with the present. This is its natural quality, and we can’t change it. 

All that is needed is to periodically remember the need to return mentally to the present moment, just to have a point of reference.

That fulcrum is your anchor, your oar, and the rudder of your boat.  They enable you to steer your life, not let things go on their own.

And if you think that being busy endlessly doing things and thinking about a million things a day is all about running your own life, you are dead wrong. It’s just mental noise and garbage and nothing more.

To get away from this mountain of garbage, at least for a while, is what mindfulness is all about. It gives you an opportunity to take a break, gather your strength, assess the reality of the situation, and make the most effective decisions.

It’s the ability to periodically surface to look around that is called awareness. And the more often you do this, the better for you.

Basics of Conscious Breathing

Now that you know what mindfulness is, let’s talk about conscious breathing.

Try to feel your breath right now. It doesn’t matter where, in your nose, in your stomach, or in your heel. Where you get it, that’s where it’s good.

It could be, for example, feeling the air move in your nose. It’s cool on the inhale and warm on the exhale. Or it could be the movement of the chest. Or a sound.

Observe this sensation. Take several breaths and exhales, focusing all your attention only on this sensation.

This is conscious breathing. 

Now for the hard part. You probably thought that now it’s necessary to breathe all the time? Or at least 5 minutes and never get distracted? And no!

The whole point of conscious breathing is to keep coming back to practice.

Just like anyone else, you will be distracted. Don’t even doubt it. And this is normal! All you will have to do is return your attention to the process of breathing. That’s it.

It’s this constant remembering to come back to the observation of the breath that is the essence of the practice of mindful breathing.

Gradually this ability will accumulate, and as a result, you will be able to focus on one process longer. If you’re in a state of mind, you will be in a state of mind where you are in a state of mind.

When to Practice Mindful Breathing

When it’s convenient for you. Undoubtedly, practising at the same time is disciplined and tuned into practice. 

Nowadays it’s difficult to motivate anyone to make a special time for classes. Even if a person agrees that a lot of time is wasted. This emptiness is more familiar to him.

So to start with, it’s a good idea to just turn on that very “mindfulness” that you should breathe with attention, and remember to do it at least once a day.

It’s easiest to start doing it before going to bed. If, of course, you do not fall into oblivion as soon as you touch your head to the pillow. If you are not in a state of unconsciousness, you will not be in a state of unconsciousness.

How Long to Practice Conscious Breathing

Like when you start placing online live betting odds, you should begin with small steps. First, 10 minutes will be enough. That’s right, just 10 minutes a day. It’s vanishingly small, it’s almost nothing. But it’s enough to start with.

At first, you just try what it is – conscious breathing. You get accustomed to it, look for the brightest sensations on which you can concentrate, that’s all.

After 2 to 3 weeks of daily practice, you can increase the time to 20 minutes.

After 1 – 2 years of daily practice, you can increase the time to 1 – 2 hours.

How Mindful Breathing Contributes to Healing

It’s simple here. You probably already know that breathing is not only pumping air back and forth. Together with the air, we absorb fresh energy and give back the old waste energy.

And everything would be fine if only this process was smooth and continuous. But, unfortunately, it is not. 

Every shock you’ve ever experienced has had an impact on that energy. Every trauma you’ve experienced has left its imprint on that energy. In those moments, we have held our breath and interfered in some way with its healthy flow and its natural rhythm.

But the minute you restore that natural healthy rhythmic flow of the breath (especially when negative thoughts and feelings arise), many miracles and miraculous healings will occur!

When you get used to the practice of mindful breathing, you’ll begin to really feel where in your body the tension has accumulated. In everyday life, we simply do not notice them, but they are there.

During conscious breathing practice, you not only find such places of tension but also automatically get rid of them. You’re already doing your body a lot of good.

If during the practice of conscious breathing, you feel like yawning and stretching, then do it. So your body is telling you that this is exactly what it needs right now, to get rid of the accumulated tension.
