Join Trevor Yelich and friends for an Integrative Breathwork journey on Friday Aug. 17th at 7:30PM.
On the emotional level, notice how many times you hold or draw in your breath in reaction to something. If you are feeling fear you hold your breath. If you are faced with someone’s anger or sometimes even someone’s love you may hold your breath. What actually happens when you draw in your breath is you hold the energy of the emotion you are feeling in your body. Your body maintains that energy as ‘frozen emotion’ in the cells. This anesthetizes your emotional vitality. As you use the process of Conscious Breathing you oxygenate (bring life to) your body and your cells. This allows for the release of held in feelings and frees you to be more emotionally vital and present in your responses to life.
On the physical level, the oxygenating of your body speeds the release of toxins and promotes physical relaxation and the release of stress.
Surprisingly, only 3% of total body waste is eliminated via defecation and 7% by urination. The skin passes out another 20% leaving the remaining 70% to be breathed out. For this reason alone it behooves us to breathe fully and freely.
On the spiritual level the breath has been used for centuries as a means of connecting with a deeper experience of who you really are in essence.
Whether you call that essence God, all that is, or your higher self it is often a depth of experience beyond words. In breathwork it is not unusual to have this realm of experience through the use of your breath. If you take the word INSPIRE its definition encompasses what breathwork is – “to inhale; to breathe life into; to affect, guide or arouse by divine influence; to fill with noble or reverent emotion; to stimulate to creativity or action.”
On the mental level, just as breath is essential to life and vitality, affirmative thought is essential to intelligence and creativity. By upgrading
the quality of our thoughts we upgrade the quality of our lives, therefore producing greater health, self-esteem and prosperity. Breathwork uses the tool of affirmations, a technique immersing new thoughts into our consciousness to release negative thought patterns affecting our behavior. Many of these patterns stem from our birth and later life experiences. Most people who practice breathwork go through major, positive changes in a short time and feel they have started their lives anew. Immediately breathwork is a tremendous boost to creative energy- within a short time & focused attention, breathwork accelerates healing expansion into joy and changes your life completely.
