The practice of deep breathing provides you with a way to focus your power and live in the moment, relaxing yourself for sleep.
~ Inhale through your nose deeply using your diaphragm and the muscles of your abdomen to fully expand
~ As your lungs reach capacity, roll the breath over and use the same muscles to push the air out of your
lungs through your mouth.
~ As you breathe in be aware of the breath coming in.
~ As you breathe out be aware of the breath going out.
~ Imagine the air like an ocean wave, cresting and rolling over the surface of your lungs.
~ Be aware of the rhythm of your heartbeat as it moves along with your breath.
~ On each in breath feel the power you are drawing into yourself.
~ On each out breath feel the elimination of old energy.
~ Connect the end of the in-breath to the beginning of the out-breath in a never ending circle of energy.
~ Whenever you find yourself in a challenging situation or are experiencing doubt, worry or negativity use
the situation as a reminder to return to the natural rhythm of your breath.
Lay flat on your back in bed
hands at your sides
close your eyes
breathe through your nose
Now, consciously draw the breath deeply
so that it scrapes the back of your throat
and flows down against your spine.
Let it go all the way down
till it can go no further
and it naturally flows upward into your
lower belly and navel.
When your belly is comfortably full
let the air rise and expand your ribs
and let your shoulders rise just a little.
You are now full of air.
You filled yourself from bottom to top
from belly to chest.
Now empty yourself from top to bottom
from chest to belly.
Compress the chest firmly
as if an invisible hand is pressed
upon its center.
Let shoulders down
exhale very slowly
no need to rush
your belly deflates automatically.
You have just completed one complete breath.
Lie on your back with your eyes closed,
your arms comfortably away from your body,
your hands palms up, your legs spread comfortably apart,
your feet angled outwards from the heels.
Breathe through your nose slowly and gently.
Do this for a few minutes.
Simply be aware of the passing of air in and out of the nostrils
If thoughts distract you
allow them to be
and return to the breath.
They will leave when they see you are not interested in them.
Now feel the weight of your body, feel the pull of gravity,
surrender to it.
Give in to gravity.
Take plenty of time to do this,
it will reconnect you with the Earth.
Now feel your contact with the ground.
Become aware of this contact
exactly between the ground and you.
from the edge of your heels to the back of your head
and every place in between.
Take plenty of time to do this.
You may never have felt how the ground supports you.
Feel the heaviness of your body again.
You are sinking, sinking into the ground.
The Earth is caring for you.
The Great Mother holds you in the palm of her loving hand.
Let go of your concerns.
You have nothing to do but lie here, nestled in her palm.
Let go, enjoy this feeling of being totally
and effortlessly supported.
Though your body is heavy you may feel as if you are floating.
This is natural, now that you have let go of your concerns.
You are light.
