Cleansing Breaths: Get the Funk Out

(A recap! My back-to-school enchantment project lasts until the end of July. I’ll blog about it daily until at least June 30. After that, I will post updates as warranted. During the project, I will work with Vapula on weekdays and Ipos on the weekends to sharpen my learning and relaxation abilities respectively. I will also work with a different spirit each week on a new school-related goal over this eight-week period. That’s the plan anyway! I just finished a week with Purson, where I enchanted a disk to carry with me while I navigated the waters of student loans.)

I spent an extremely laid back half hour with Ipos this morning. It rained last night, so the temperature had finally dropped. I opened the window to soak in the fresh air and began taking cleansing breaths. From there, I moved into simple deep breathing and held the enchanted disc dedicated to him in my hands. I ran energy through it for the remainder of our time together.

To practice this type of cleansing breaths:

  1. Exhale fully but not forcefully.
  2. Inhale until you are approximately 3/4 full. Make sure to breathe into your belly.
  3. Hold this until you feel you have to exhale—and then fill your lungs completely.
  4. Hold your breath for the count of 3, 5, or 7. Basically, as long as you can.
  5. Exhale fully but not forcefully.

With experience, you can learn to chain multiple cleansing breaths in a row. If you become light-headed or uncomfortable at any time, breathe normally again. I am not a doctor nor do I play one on TV, etc.
