How to Breathe Your Way to Balance

Sunday, September 13, 2009
I have been home from Hawaii a week now, and as promised will share one of my new tools I learned from Dr. George Pratt during the Power of Energy V Seminar.   You all know how central to the effectiveness of the Snap Out Of It NOW! processes that belly breathing is, now here is a tool that can instantly bring you to a state of relaxed focus wherever you may find yourself!  The tool is called, Balanced Breathing -- you'll find yourself feeling centered and balanced and ready for any challenges you face. 

Sitting in a comfortable position:
  1. Cross your left ankle over your right ankle.  
  2. Extend both arms straight out in front of you.
  3. Cross your right arm over your left arm at the wrist.
  4. Rotate the palms of your hands so that they are facing and interlock your fingers.
  5. Rotate your hands down toward your stomach.
  6. Continue rotating inward so that you bring your hands up close to your chest.  At this point you have crossed the center line of your body with your hands, arms, and legs.
NoteIf it is more comfortable for you, you can reverse the order--right ankle over left, left wrist over right.  It doesn't make a difference, as long as they are opposite.

Once in the proper position, inhale through your nose while touching the tip of your tongue to the roof of your mouth.  Exhale through your mouth, resting your tongue on the floor of your mouth.  (Do this for 2-minutes)

Focus your thoughts on the concept of balance.  It might be the idea of the balance of mind and body or just the word "balance." At the same time picture in your mind, if you can, an image that represents balance.  This could be the image of a scale, or a seesaw, or standing on one foot.  Throughout the two-minute process, breathe comfortably.  Don't worry it you are not always able to hold the thought or image; come back to it if you drift away.

The above is taken verbatim from Dr. Pratt's book, Instant Emotional Healing, (page 254)
