Many Americans go through life doing a series of tasks. They get up every day, eat breakfast, say goodbye to family, go to work, sit in traffic, do work, worry about work, complete work, sit in traffic, say hello to family, pay bills, go to bed and … get up and do it all again tomorrow. These are things we are supposed to do. Inspiration is not something you’re supposed to do. To be inspired is to be filled with “enlivening or exalting emotion.” To be inspired is to live a life of passion. In short; it’s exciting … living life with purpose.
Inspiration … Into The Breath
How do we go from a life of a series of tasks to one of passion and inspiration? Would it surprise you to learn that inspiration also means to be “aroused by divine influence?” In fact, the origins of inspiration come from the Latin words “in spirare,” meaning “into breath.” This is also the same root for the word “Spirit.” Therefore, to the architects of our language the words “breathe” and “Spirit” mean the same thing. Is it possible that our breathing can help us become inspired and aroused by divine influence so we can open to a fuller and more passionate life?
It is a fact that approximately 90% of the population is only breathing at about 50% of their capacity. This can dramatically limit your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. But few are aware of this because we believe that restricted breathing is normal. But now you know and now you can do something about it.
The Master Key To Good Health
When you expand your breath a lot happens. Your diaphragm (your major breathing muscle) relaxes and breathing feels open and free. This brings more oxygen into your body and everything happens better with more oxygen. Energy levels improve, blood pressure goes down, lymph gets distributed, toxins are removed and the immune system is supported. In fact, internationally renowned author and MD, Andrew Weil says that, “…breathing well may be the master key to good health. I recommend breath work to all my patients.”
A Better Life
But there is more. It is a fact that emotional and subconscious memories are stored throughout the body but especially on the diaphragm. When these memories are released through a Transformational Breathing Breathwork session, stress and tension disappear and great changes in a person’s attitude and mental condition are possible. This can improve attitude, mitigate the hold of addictive behavior patterns, reduce fear and anxiety and even calm a racing mind. Sleep comes easier, is deeper and more restorative. The weight of the world feels like it’s lifted off your shoulders. Life seems easier. You are in the flow. You feel good; you feel passionate … you are inspired. You feel like you can take on the world and make a difference. And that’s what it’s all about, isn’t it?
When you change your breath, you change your life. Now what you choose to do with this new found life and energy is up to you. Thousands of people who have changed the way they breathe have opened to limitless possibilities. Be inspired!
