Healing Breaths

I just learned a powerful way to take what I call “healing breaths” to soothe anything that ails me, and I wanted to share it with you.  This comes from spiritual teacher Matt Kahn, and it really does work (I have tried it a couple of times.)
Matt says that whenever you are bothered by anything—a physical pain, a bothersome thought, a problem, a judgmental attitude, whatever it is—take a deep breath.

Using your breath as a delivery truck, Matt says, direct your breath to your heart. Then pick up love from your open heart and deliver it (via the breath) to your point of awareness. Breathe into your problem, your blockage, your worry.  Then take a long, slow exhale which is the signal that the love has been delivered to your point of awareness.

These healing breaths will get your mind out of the way and put your problem in higher hands. You will no longer be burdened by that which is not yours to control.

Matt describes and goes into more detail about these healing breaths in this YouTube video. I suggest you watch it, because Matt’s explanation is so much better than mine!
