It is cold and flu season, and many people are looking for relief from it. Many of us who get sick might end up taking different kinds of medications including cough syrups, over the counter drugs, antibiotics, and perhaps even steroids, and other prescription drugs.
We lose 70% of the toxins in our body through the breath. We lose, approximately, 10% of the toxins when we go to the bathroom, and the rest is through our skin. By accelerating our breath into a deep, rhythmic pattern as we do in a Breathwork session or in yoga, we are taking in “prana” which is life-force-energy and carries a very high, fine-tuned vibration. Prana is a Sanskrit term which means the essence of life. Chi-prana is the breath of life.
I do not advise that you do the Breathwork on yourself until you’ve done a minimum of at least 12 sessions or until you’ve been properly trained. If you don’t know what you’re doing, the process can feel very intense and even a little scary. If you don’t clear the energy completely, the energy can get stuck, and you could end up taking it out on the people around you; usually the people that you’re closest to. It’s best to do the Breathwork with a certified practitioner who knows what they’re doing to make sure that you clear the energy completely.
Typically, in a breath session as a client goes into the deep, rhythmic breathing pattern, they begin to release toxins caused from drugs, anesthesia, antibiotics, Novocain, antidepressants, alcohol, recreational drugs, etc. I call it all “drug energy” as it all comes off the same. You can feel the heavy, dense energy come off you as a tingling that usually begins in your hands and feet and around your head.
As you keep breathing, this tingling may spread throughout your entire body. The tingling may become so intense, it feels like a heavy, dense vibration. This heavy vibration is the “drug energy” releasing.
As an infant I had pneumonia twice, and I remember constantly being sick as a child with terrible colds. I truly believe the Breathwork has been my saving grace to help me through the years to clear the toxins caused from medications and sickness itself.
I came down with a horrible cold a couple of weeks ago. I’d gone out to LA to work with clients, and it came on really fast and hard. Most of all the brain fog made it difficult to think clearly.
A few days after I got home, I went to Urgent Care, and it had turned into acute bronchitis. They treated me for pneumonia with strong antibiotics, steroids, and codeine cough syrup. Tuesday afternoon my lungs opened up so that I could start breathing better. Wednesday morning I got in and did a breath session on myself for three and a half hours of hard breathing.
Normally, in a session for myself or my clients, the intense breathing goes for about 45 minutes to an hour. The second part of a session, I include a meditation. In the sessions I did on myself in the past couple of weeks, I didn’t include the meditation, but went strictly for the breath to clear the cold.
I did another session Thursday morning for two and a half hours hard breathing, took a break on Friday, did another three hours on Saturday, and two hours on Sunday. I took a break on Monday and Tuesday and did another two hours Wednesday morning. Not only was I releasing the toxins and cold, I got some really great ideas for my business and the book I’m working on now.
Typically, people keep releasing toxins (and sometimes, emotions) for a day or two after a breath session. Each day I did a session on myself, I could feel the “drug energy” coming off of me for hours after I finished.
I’m feeling almost completely better, but I’ll get in a do a couple of more sessions on myself this week to clear the last of the cold and drug energy. I thank God for this tool to help myself get opened up and back on track.
As we move into this New Year, I encourage you to remember and live your passion.
