People breathe wrong - you breathe wrong.

Most people breathe shallowly and into their chests.

This is not good.

Shallow breathing brings less oxygen into your body and creates an imbalance between oxygen and carbon dioxide.

Healthy breathing is one in which your abdomen rises and falls as you breathe in and out.

Through deep and conscious breathing you can not only improve your health, but also learn to let go

Some people can't let go because of the past festhalten. You cannot forget and you cannot forgive.

These people live in a world of pain and suffering.

But there is hope! By learning to let go, you too can learn to let go.

pain, anger, sadness Let's breathe

There are many different reasons why people want to learn to breathe properly.

Perhaps you have asthma or another condition that makes breathing difficult.

Maybe you are an athlete and want to improve your endurance.

Or maybe you just feel like you're not breathing properly and want to find out if that's true.

No matter what your reason, it's important to realize that there are some common mistakes people make when breathing.

These mistakes can lead to serious health problems if left uncorrected.

In this article, we will take a closer look at some of these errors.

  • emotions are sometimes very violent.
  • Can blatantly intervene in our lives.
  • Sometimes we don't even know where exactly our feelings are coming from.
  • There it is, jealousy, while we actually know better.

But there is good news. we can do something

  • We can far away from the fight unwanted emotions not only eliminate, we can also use this trick to determine where they come from, these energies of pain.
  • we can all learn to help ourselves.

A story

A woman hears a story
A History – Start breathing


At first, Tina didn't know where her little daughter's yelling was coming from. She finally located it in the garden.

She dropped her laundry basket, which wanted to be hung out in the sun full of freshly washed laundry, and ran to the patio door.

Tina found her daughter screaming under the swing set, clutching her knee — yelling louder than a summer construction site — with a hammer drill.

"Oh god, what happened?" Tina picked up her little daughter Lena and sat her on her knee. Sobs came out of the girl alternately, which howled in between and died in a sniffle.

Schschsch… not that bad. See?” Tina blew over her daughter's knee. "There, look, the owl flies away. It's high up, there! In the tree!"

The little daughter squinted in the sun, sniffled and nodded. "Can you see it?" Tina asked. Lena nodded and smiled. "Good!" said Tina. "The ouch is gone now and it's never coming back!"

Flying ouches and emotions

Let's breathe - emotions

Now you're wondering what flying owls have to do with emotions? I'll explain it to you because this is a fabulous image for your own personal "Ouch's".

Pain, psychological or physical, wants to communicate something.

If your leg hurts and sticks out weirdly, you know it's broken. That's easy, you go to a hospital.

If you feel nauseous, it can either be because of a spoiled meal or because of a situation.

buy you have to think about which doctor you go to. General Practitioner or Analyst? Already more difficult.

But if you're angry, hurt, jealous, or 180 - don't even bother asking if you should see a doctor.

You "eat" the emotion into you, freak out or distract yourself.

However, your negative emotions, the pain behind them, is just as much a message that something is wrong.

The trick is the visualization:

the pain as a "Lena".

"Lena" wants to show you that something is wrong.

Your job is to notice "Lena" and blow her ouch so that it can fly away.

Only then can "Lena" continue to play and be happy.

Most beautiful Quotations about breathing

Perhaps you are practiced in meditation, then you will find it easier to follow these instructions.

But even without previous experience, this succeeds in most cases at the latest on the second attempt.


Video training “Intuition – hear and follow your inner voice.”

You doubt if you really hear your inner voice

  • You want more security in your perception
  • You want to strengthen the connection to yourself
  • You want to train your fine intuition


Do not give up!

The reward behind it are "knees" without scars!


Our breathing is so important that we can only live a few minutes without it.

We use the different breathing techniques for relaxation, for more Energy and we can even aggressively—and even healthily—breathe ourselves.

We use the breath also for blowing.

Pay attention to the effect of your breath, right now!

Close your eyes and let yourself breathe through you.

Just looking at “being breathed” relaxes you by 45 degrees.

Capture the unwanted emotion

Let's breathe - pain

I will best explain the further process to you with an example.

Let's say you're constantly overreacting to your (spouse) partner.

He/she might stay at work longer, the best friend / the best friend is a permanent guest, that hobbies are far more important than joint ventures.

In short: you feel taken back, not given enough attention for everything you do.

And instead of 10 SMS a day, only three.

Even shorter: you are jealous. You are jealous of almost everything and everyone who gives you the time and steals the partner's attention.

The harder you try, the worse it gets. The partner suddenly starts to go fishing or collect stamps. A paradox, at first glance.

In the second moment you see yourself failed, worthless and degraded to a monkey.

This leaves the door wide open for depression or a breakup.

Or for both.

Letting go - breathing loose

Find a place where you can be completely undisturbed for the next 20 minutes.

This can be in your home or in nature.

The Nature is always preferable, but sometimes it is not.

If you do this breathing exercise at home, It rises so that nobody disturbs you. No phone, no child, no bell, not even that Cat.

Plants and rocks are okay.

Make yourself comfortable. Just as you like it.

Close your eyes and focus on your breath.

Watch it flow through you.

In this moment you are. Not more.

You will find that your pulse slows down.

Pictures come to mind, pictures go. They pass like clouds. Emotions come, emotions go.

They blow by like the wind.

the Channel emotions and pictures manage to touch you, others you hardly notice.

When you're in-die, consciously and purposefully recall the situation that upset you so much.

watch her

Observing does not mean entering.

You watch your emotions the same way someone sits in a coffee shop at the airport and watches the planes come in and take off.

Nothing else.

The emotion now and at this moment becomes the "Lena" who has bruised her knee. You yourself become the "Tina" who perceives it.

It's already becoming less painful at this moment, as you will find out just by looking at it!

Don't put any more energy into the emotion.

The opposite of love is not hate, but indifference!

Let "keep breathing" and when you feel the "ouch" is over, you can come back up.

You feel a lot lighter and freer, don't you?

Then it is a sign that something completely different is behind the recurring emotions.

Conclusion Let's breathe

Woman in a red skirt draws her conclusions
Let's breathe
  • Let go has a lot to do with identifying the cause.
  • This always happens from the inside out.
  • For as it is on a small scale, so it is on a large scale.
  • You can't do the whole world change.
  • You can only ever change your own world and then be happy when someone is inspired by it.

Don't expect miracles, but it's like the glass thing: you need lots of clean, fresh Water pour into a glass with dirt until it has changed the water to what you want.

And the more you do that, practice letting go and breathing and observing this without acting, the more your "knees" will stay clean and healthy.
