15 Ways To Open Your Heart ~ Olivia Weil

15 Ways To Open Your Heart.

By Olivia Weil, In5D.com.





“Love is the only truth. All else is illusion.”
There is telepathy between hearts. A sense of knowing between them, a feeling that we get inside of ourselves without even speaking.
When we come together as One, we don’t even have to speak and yet many times we know what someone is thinking, feeling, or the vibes they are giving off without them even having to say a word.

Recently, I was working with someone who is deeply far along in their spiritual journey, a highly, intuitive, empathic individual, and an amazing person. And yet he still said to me, “I don’t know what it is, but I just cannot open my heart. It feels tight, closed, and armored. I want to love again.”
We worked in the energetic together, over a number of sessions, performing illuminations and facilitating shamanic energy medicine and healing, opening his heart and allowing him to begin feeling love again.
Opening our hearts can be a scary thing. After all, we have years of conditioning in place—fear, pain, suffering, judgments, comparisons and the like. By now, we have had traumas, dramas, accidents, illnesses, heart aches, heart breaks, and everything in between. “Life” has happened and we sometimes can get discouraged, especially if we have not yet taken back the reigns of our personal power and personal freedom.
So … How do we go about opening our hearts?
Here are some simple practices you can do at home to open your heart chakra more and more each day, beginning to feel the love again.
The whole universe is waiting to love you. Your higher self is waiting to love you. Your twin flame is waiting to love you. When will you fall in love with you again?

15 Ways To Open Your Heart

1. Be in Nature, Be Nature Itself

When we commune with Nature, we tap in and connect to the interconnectedness of all things—this interconnected web of life that makes up the fabric of our reality of existence. It is here in nature that we can tune back in to our innate gifts and re-commune with ourselves on a whole different level.

Try sitting in a quiet place, in nature, coming to the present moment, the only moment we really ever have.
Once sitting in nature, begin gazing with your left eye, dominantly yet slightly out of focus. Begin to look at the outline of the trees, plants, and things around you. Everything—I mean everything—has an aura. A halo-shaped, crown of light/love energy around it. When you softly yet dominantly gaze out of your left eye, you begin to see this haze, this fabric of existence that makes up this space time reality. Try it next time you are in nature and witness the feelings that arise as you realize you are One with the Infinite Creator of All that Is.
In these moments, we smile to ourselves at the subtleties—we are not in nature, we are nature.
Not to mention, that, spending time in nature puts us in resonance with Mother Earth’s heart beat. Through grounding, or sometimes called earthing, the electromagnetic resonance of our hearts will tune in to the electromagnetic resonance of Mother Earth’s heartbeat. As our heart consciousness beats with and aligns with hers, we feel a sense of “home” wash over us, reminding ourselves that we are loved, we are worthy. We are infinite, spiritual beings having a human experience. And we are supported by all of Creation.

2. Come to the Present Moment

In an earlier blog post, we talked about four ways to come to the present moment (surrendering, asking for help, trusting the universe, and choosing love).
When we are in the Present Moment, using our Breath to re – align us and bringing us back whenever we feel adrift, we allow ourselves to tune in to this loving connection to all that is. This is the second way to open our hearts.

3. Meditation and Stillness: Be the Witness

The third way to open our heart space is through meditation and stillness. When we are the witness—when we make a commitment to “Be the Witness”—meaning when we stay in Observer Consciousness and witness what is coming up for ourselves in any given moment, we give our hearts permission to stay open and and invite love to flow through us.

The next time that something is “coming up” for you, try staying as detached as possible—practicing detachment, non attachment, and staying in that observer consciousness—merely witnessing what is coming up for you. So, much like if it were raining outside, you would say to yourself, “Oh, it is beginning to rain, I can feel rain drops on my shoulders. I am noticing that it is raining.”
That same thinking holds true when feelings are arising. Just like you would notice these raindrops, or perhaps just like you are watching clouds float by in the sky, you can say to yourself, “Oh, here comes sadness, I see you. I am witnessing you. I love you and am here for you.” And hold yourself with love and compassion as you observe what is coming up and through.
Staying in this heart-centered space invites your heart to feel safe and stay open.

4. Breathing

Returning to the breath is a powerful tool in co-creation.
Our breath is our life-force energy and so we can use the breath any time we wish to come back to the present moment—the Eternal Now. When we say that the “Eternal Now” is the only moment we really ever have, we mean that because ALL that exists, ever has existed, and ever will exist is only ever happening right here, right now.
There are a myriad of breathing techniques, and finding one that works for you is a beautiful permission slip to accept.
So whether it is taking deep, nourishing inhalations on the in-breath, and long, audible exhalations on the out-breath. Or, whether it is another technique where you hold the breath in for five seconds, pause for five seconds at the top, and exhale for five seconds—finding a breathing technique that works for you can help slow us down in any given moment.

Returning to the breath is the fourth way to stay centered and in your heart space.

5. Lighting a candle

The fifth way is to light a candle. The next time you are in a quiet place and have a moment to your Self, consider lighting a candle.
Begin breathing taking a few deep breaths in and out. Softly begin gazing at the flame. Again, with your left eye dominant, and slightly out of focus, gaze at the flame that is the blazing fire of Spirit’s love for you.
After a few minutes of staring at this flame of Universal love/light energy, visualize this flame coming into your heart centre. Invite this flame to come inside of your chest, pulling in the flames of the Universe’s love, gently washing yourself in light/love, love/light energy. Feel the beginnings of the flickerings of love as this light of Unconditional Acceptance of Self is installed in your heart space.
Any time after this, you can bring your attention and intention to this blazing fire of “munay” (moon-ahy) (unconditional love), fanning the flames of your existence and eternal Being.

6. Connecting with Friends

Connecting with tribe is a beautiful way to keep your heart center Open and activated. When we connect with like-minded people, we feel safe. And when we feel safe, our heart can stay open and in balance.
Our vibrations come together like tuning forks resonating at the same frequency. When we are vibrating at the same frequency, we can make a quantum leap in healing, aligning to one another’s true eternal nature, the one who was never born and who will never die.

True friends are those who witness you in non-judgment, non-attachment, and with love and compassion. They allow you to be your Authentic Self, and they hold you in sacred space as you fan these flames of existence for yourself.
The next time you are feeling down or like your heart is closed, pick up the phone and call someone you know who truly cares about you.
Set your intention to connect to their heart space, and begin breathing and coming to the present moment.

7. Color therapy

Color therapy is a beautiful practice and an invitation I accept and use in session work all the time.
Sit comfortably in a quiet place and bring your attention to your heart. Begin to breath as you focus on your chest area. After taking a few deep breaths, visualize the first color that comes to you. Trust your inner guidance: whatever color is coming up for you is the color that your aura is wanting for, for harmonization and balance.
Your aura is also called the Luminous Energy Field—the torus, egg-shaped like field of vibrations—surrounding your physical body. This is the pattern of vibrations shamans are trained to see with the naked eye, and where our imprints, wounds, traumas, and affinities lie. When imprints are created in the Luminous Energy Field, there are ripples created in our state of beingness, and these ripples become affinities, and these affinities become patterns.

In another blog post, we talked about beliefs—our disempowering beliefs and how they make up the fabric of our existence of this space-time reality. Our beliefs are powerful, mighty beings who can get us off-kilter in a matter of moments. So, the next time you are having trouble opening your heart, or perhaps feel a tightness in your chest that you know is not physical and yet can’t seem to ignore, examine what beliefs are coming up for you.
What are the lies the mind is telling you (mainly about ourselves) that are stemming from a belief— a belief that is branching from an illogical distortion?
What “belief baggage” are you carrying? We all have it, we just have to bring it into our awareness.
And then invite yourself to master awareness of awareness, and awareness of awareness of awareness, and so forth. Bringing our beliefs to the surface, especially contradictory ones that we hold, is another one of the quickest ways to begin self-healing.

8. Journaling

The practice of Journaling is an amazing tool for processing. There is nothing juicier than opening up the fresh pages of a new Journal, waiting for you to fill the pages with your story and experiences.
The next time things are coming up for you, consider pouring everything out on the pages of a sacred Journal. Sometimes, we just have to “get it out.”

It doesn’t matter what you write or how you write it, simply getting the words out on to the pages can help you release whatever you are harbouring inside of you at any given moment.
After you Journal, breathe confidently knowing that you have released what no longer serves you and allow yourself to go about your day calling back in all things that are your birthright—love, bliss, abundance, inner peace, and all things in our best and highest good.

9. Living Authentically

When we live authentically, we give others permission to do the same. Some people are not in a place to honor our chosen path, and so judgments, comparisons and the like, can arise.
What is more, is that you are a “secondary character” in the so-called drama or play of their life, and when you begin to change, you no longer are fitting into their box or role you were previously playing for them.
This makes them uncomfortable and so (most times unconsciously), they try to re-correct you back into the character that you were once playing for them. This can hinder your growth and be unhealthy in a number of ways.
All the more reason why having healthy boundaries is imperative.

10. Healthy Boundaries

Setting healthy boundaries is necessary for going forth in our exploration of Self and the Universe. We are the Microcosm to the Macrocosm, and we cannot explore the Macrocosm if the Microcosm does not know it’s Self—it’s individuated sense of Self or Beingness—who has healthy boundaries. It is true what they say, “We are all one”, but many people confuse this by thinking that that in some way means we don’t have to, or shouldn’t, have healthy boundaries.

This could not be farther from the truth.
Compassion and healthy boundaries is another place that seems difficult for people who come to me to reconcile. Many times they’ll say to me, “I want to have compassion, be a compassionate person, be there for someone, do the right thing. And yet I feel awful once I have done so because I am not putting myself first.”
We can have compassion, for ourselves and others, and have healthy boundaries. In fact, setting healthy boundaries is compassion. It is a “both/and” situation, not an “either/or” type of thing.
And so healthy boundaries is a must, during the self-healing process, and always.

11. Standing in Your Truth

In Shamanism, the direction of the West is represented by Jaguar medicine. Mother sister Jaguar reminds us to stand in our truth, to have the courage to say what needs to be said when it needs to be said.
Speaking our truth is a powerful way to invite others to do the same. This doesn’t mean we are creating conflict or otherwise in some way being mean-spirited, discompassionate, unloving, or disconnected.
All it means here is that we are being authentic to ourselves, we are standing on our own two feet, we are doing our best in any given moment, and we are choosing ourselves—before anyone else. Not in a place from the Ego, but in a place derived from self-love.

It is not selfishness, it is self-love.
Standing in our truth and allowing others to see what we are and who we are gives them the go-ahead to also stand in theirs.
When we are authentic with people, and speak with words of love, our truth resonates with them on a level that simply cannot be argued with. Because it is our truth.
Everyone has a personal dream, meaning a unique way that they see the world. We are all artists painting our realities and co-creating what is before us in every moment. Respecting other people’s dreams—the way they see the world, the beliefs they hold, etc.—is one of the most compassionate ways we can go about our days. Relieving ourselves from conflict, dramas, arguments and battles. Respecting the dreams and visions of others, for no one person sees this reality in the same way.

12. Sending Love, Embodying Love

Sending love, embodying love, is one of the quickest ways to fill your own Self up with love. When we send love, we are connecting to our own individual Source of energy.
When we are connected to Infinite Source Energy of all that is, we allow others to do the same.
The next time you are feeling that tightening in your chest, or perhaps those overwhelming feelings of despair—or any kind of lower vibrations—visualize someone in front of you want to send love to (or better yet, someone you don’t want to send love to).
Set your intention to connect to their heart centre. Imagine for a moment love/light energy pouring out of your heart into theirs. Begin to feel gratitude in every fiber of your being for this thing we call “life”, and then send those feelings of gratitude out through your core to the other person and the rest of the world.

Gratitude is one of the highest vibrations, other than Unconditional Love, and so when we emit these powerful resonances, we can vibrate higher daily and connect back into that space-time reality where miracles are commonplace and magic is real.

13. Listen to Your Heart

Listening to your heart and cultivating inner stillness is a powerful tool in self-healing.
What is your heart saying? What messages does it have for you?
Are you thinking with your head, or with your heart?
Coming to the Present Moment, residing in that still place within you, turning your focus inward—instead of outward—and then quieting the mind long enough to hear what messages are coming through for you. Set your intention that you only hear messages of love and nothing else, that you feel with the mind, and think with the heart. Begin breathing deeply. Focus on the chest rising up and expanding, and then falling down closer and closer to the body.
There is safety in this quiet place of Surrender. There is Expansiveness here. Breathe.

14. Following our Bliss

In earlier articles, we’ve talked about a formula for living life presently and fully. When we Follow Our Bliss, amazing things become possible: We step into the flow of the Infinite Creator of all that is.
Following our bliss, to the best of our ability, in every moment, without attachment to or insistence on the outcome, is the formula. And one of the easiest ways to enact the formula is through passion.

When we do things we are passionate about, we step into that magical Flow, that “zone”. Passion, bliss, love, excitement—or any derivative thereof—is the way to get there.
Love is the vehicle.
Love is the vehicle for all things. The way we love says the most about us. The way we love ourselves and the way we love others.
You can ask yourself, “how are you loving today?”
Have you loved you today? If not, then why not? What is stopping you? If you are not loving you, or are not feeling the love for others, try practicing some of the tools we talked about here today.
And if you are loving you, and are loving others, then relax into yourself even deeper and keep doing what you are doing. Love is the only thing, the every thing.
When we vibrate at Unconditional Love, we are resonating at our true, unique energy signatures.

15. Unconditional Love

Unconditional Love comes from a place of honor and respect.
Loving people (or ourselves) unconditionally doesn’t mean the other can do no wrong. It is rooted in that timeless space of honor and respect, where we show up for the person and hold space for them no matter what they are going through. And most of all, we show up for ourselves.
When we place condition after condition on our love for people, this is the farthest thing from love.

For example, “If you do this, then I will love you. If you act this way, then I will give you my love, then I will show you I love you through reward.” Or similarly, “If you don’t do this, then I will punish you, I will not give you my love.”
Placing condition after condition on our love for people, is not love. This is control.
The next time you find yourself in any given situation that doesn’t seem to be going well, ask yourself, are you loving unconditionally? Or are you giving your love conditionally, on a “reward/punishment” basis?
So, too, the next time you are in that situation, ask yourself: Am I being loved unconditionally? Meaning, am I being shown love with honor and respect? Or, am I being loved conditionally, where I am only receiving love from the other person on a reward/punishment basis?
If you answered yes to the latter, it’s time to go back to your toolkit and set some healthy boundaries. You teach people how to treat you by how you treat yourself.
And then turn the focus inward. What lesson is presenting itself here? What mirror is this person holding up for us? Because at the end of the day, it has nothing to do with the other person, it has to do with ourselves.
And most likely—(not always but most likely)—if someone is not treating you with love and respect, it may be because you yourself are not loving and honouring your Self.
How can someone love and respect us if we are not loving and respecting ourselves?

Bringing it All Together: A Heart-Opening Truth

Sometimes I am asked, but how do we love ourselves? And the answer is, by loving others. Other times I am asked, but how do we love others? And the answer is, by loving ourselves.

How are we compassionate for ourselves? By being compassionate for others. And how are we compassionate for others? By being compassionate for ourselves.
Try these practices, and let me know how they work for you. I love hearing your feedback about your Journeys and the way things are going for you. As always please reach out and share your processes, at olivia@onelovemedicine.com. Even if you just need someone to be your sacred witness, to hold space for you, I am here for you.

6 Life-Changing Breathing Techniques ~ Hilde Larsen

6 Life-Changing Breathing Techniques.

By Hilde Larsen

Contributing writer for Wake Up World.

July 5th, 2019. 



Changing how you breathe can foster the self-healing powers of your body.
“Are you a shallow breather also? There are a few obvious ways that you can tell, so get to it and find out. Lie down and put one hand on your chest and the other one on your abdomen. Breathe like you usually do and watch your hands. Breathe normally. If the hand on your chest raises first, you are a shallow-breather, of the one on your abdomen raises first, you are a deep-breather.
By spending time alone with our breathing, we will start to experience ourselves as more than this physical body. It is the simple way to start any meditation practice, to simply be aware of the breath. Once we become a part of our breath, or breathing, the mind loses its grip, and stillness can come forth.

This way, even the subconscious mind will start to dissolve its thought patterns. This in itself is a major key to why conscious breathing is healing on all levels. The breathing might open a flow of emotions and feelings, as you are able to really connect with them. Keep breathing and know that it is all good. It is all as it should be, you, your breathing, your healing and your future life.”

Continue to read the How Your Breathing Can Heal article here.
I am a great believer in diligence and persistence, and a follower of discipline as a great tool for manifesting growth and awareness. A consistent practice will give you real results, and by learning these breathing practices and implementing them on a daily basis, you will build muscle and find the ones you like the best.
Here is a list of what you will need:
  1. The space for your breathing practice. A quiet room with a matress or a bed.
  2. A mind that is quiet and rested. Get your calendar all situated and your diet in place.
  3. Make sure those around you, if you do not live alone, honor your space this week.
  4. 30 minutes of designated time.
  5. Find a breathing outfit that is light in color. Preferably white, and very comfortable. Natural fabrics like cotton, silk and linen is best.
Complementary focus:
  1. Reduce your stress level. I recommend making it a top priority.
  2. Zero focus on you having a body that is anything but healthy and beautiful.
  3. Absolutely no task or appointments that makes you uncomfortable. This is about allowing the breath of your future health.
  4. Be mindful of your breath during the day.
“Breathing deep supplies more oxygen to all our body parts including our digestive system, thus making it work more efficiently. The increased blood flow due to deep breathing also encourages intestinal action which further improves your overall digestion. In addition, deep breathing results in a calmer nervous system, which in turn also enhances optimal digestion.”

#1 This is referred to as the Lion`s Breath (Simha Pranayama):

Lion`s Breath is a powerful breath in the upper chest and throat. It cleanses out toxins, and is good for the throat chakra, and the thyroid.
Lion’s breath is performed by starting in simhasana then lowering the jaw to open the mouth wide, stretching the tongue out and curling it down. The gaze is toward the sky. The muscles at the front of the throat contract and a forceful exhalation is made with a roaring “haaaa” sound, feeling the air pass over the back of the throat. This can be repeated two or three times.
Lion’s breath is said to provide an ideal outlet for negative energy. The powerful exhalation and the engagement of the arms and shoulders are a manifestation of the release of negative energy from inside. It is said that many problems are a result of anger and resentment held inside and lion’s breath, with simhasana, releases that energy. It is important that the exhalation is strong and full of intention, not half-hearted, in order to experience the full benefits.
Lion’s breath stimulates the manipura chakra, and may also improve self-esteem and feelings of empowerment.
  • Extend the tongue out to touch the chin.
  • Breathe powerfully, forcing the breath over the root of the tongue, without any rasping.

Benefits of Lion`s breath or Simha Pranayama:

  • Lions Breath is beneficial in relieving tension occurring in the jaws because of teeth grinding and jaw clenching.
  • It prevents the throat from drooping with age as Simha Pranayama/Lion’s Breath stimulates platysma which is a thin and broad muscle. This muscle is responsible for pulling the corners of the mouth and for drooping of throat.
  • Another benefit of Lions Breath is that it promotes good posture and apparently increases confidence level.
  • With Simha Pranayama or Lions Breath, the tongue is stretched and subsequently the blood circulation is increased to throat and tongue.
  • It improves your vocal tone.
  • Lions Breath is beneficial in releasing the tension accumulated in neck and chest.
  • It helps relieve the anger and frustration and promote healthy living.
  • Simha Pranayama is also said to treat menstrual problems in women.
  • Simha Pranayama or improves digestion and helps relieve Reproductive problems.

#2 This is referred to as Sitali Pranayama:

Sitali Pranayam is known to have a powerful relaxing effect on the body, while maintaining alertness. It is known to lower fevers, and aid digestion.
Sitali pranayama is a yogic breathing exercise that is designed to both calm the mind and cool the body. The term comes from the Sanskrit, sitali, meaning “cooling” or “soothing”; prana, meaning “life force”; and ayama, meaning “extension.” To practice sitali pranayama, the tongue is rolled and then the breath is drawn in through the tongue as if through a straw.
Sitali pranayama differs from many other types of pranayama that are intended to warm the body.
  • Curl the tongue into a ‘U” shape.
  • Inhale through the curled tongue.
  • Exhale through the nose. This breath is also used with Breath of Fire and with Segmented Breaths in some kriyas.
  • You may notice the tongue tasting bitter at first. This is a sign of detoxification and will pass.
Inhale and exhale through the curled tongue.

Benefits of Sitali Pranayam:

  • Regulates digestive + sexual energy
  • Relaxes the body + mind
  • Cools anger + fever
  • Detoxifies
  • Brings concentration + clarity + calm
Your tongue may taste bitter at first — a sign of detoxification and purification. This is good! As you continue to practice, your tongue will become sweet.
The shifts you’ll feel after practicing Sitali Pranayam are profound, like stepping out of an old you and into a new, clear, purified self.

#3 This is referred to as Bhastrika or Bellows breath:

Yoga offers a variety of techniques for fanning the fire, all focusing on the navel center. One of the most straightforward is a breathing practice called bhastrika, or bellows breathing.
This vigorous pranayama involves a rapid series of active inhalations and exhalations. Just as a bellows draws in air and pushes it across glowing coals to generate heat, bhastrika uses the action of the abdominal muscles and diaphragm to draw air in and out of the lungs, generating heat in the body by squeezing blood through the digestive organs, toning the liver, spleen, stomach, and pancreas, and increasing digestive capacity. It can also keep winter colds at bay by clearing the nasal passages, sinuses, and lungs.
  • Sit in a steady, comfortable posture with the spine straight.
  • Take a few deep, even diaphragmatic breaths through the nostrils. When you’re ready to begin, exhale by contracting the abdominal muscles quickly and forcefully, followed immediately with a quick diaphragmatic inhalation of equal force, letting the abdominal muscles relax completely.
  • The challenge here is to coordinate the action of the diaphragm and abdominal muscles so the air moves in and out of the lungs quickly: as the abdominal muscles relax at the end of an exhalation, the diaphragm actively contracts to begin the inhalation; as the diaphragm begins to release its contraction after the peak of inhalation, the abdominal muscles immediately contract. It will take time and attention to coordinate these movements.
  • Both the exhalation and the inhalation will be audible through the nostrils; the goal is to make them equal in both duration and force.
Bhastrika should be practiced only on an empty stomach. Early morning is ideal; before lunch and/or late afternoon are good times, too.
Doing this invigorating practice at bedtime can cause insomnia.
Start slow:
At first, limit yourself to 7–11 breaths, or repetitions. Then pause and rest with a slow, deep diaphragmatic breath. This constitutes one round. Do 1–3 rounds daily, gradually increasing the number of breaths per round by 5 each week. Aim for one inhale/exhale per second.
Over time, you can work your way up to 3 rounds per session and 3 sessions per day, increasing the vigor and speed of practice up to 2 breaths per second. You can also continue to increase the number of repetitions within each round by 5 each week. Always stay within your comfortable capacity.

Benefits of Bhastrika or Bellows breath:

  • This is the best breathing exercise for lungs. It makes the lungs healthy and improves strength. It directly affects all respiratory system of body and cures all lungs related problems.
  • Very helpful for cold, flu, sinus and asthma.
  • Thyroid, tonsils and all throat problems are helped.
  • It is very helpful to cure all heart diseases like angina, arteries blockages, etc .
  • Highly recommended for Brain symptoms like Depression, Migraine, Parkinson’s Disease, Paralysis, etc.
  • Helps to remove impurities of blood. Vata (wind/spirit/air), pitta (bile) and kapha (phlegm) are balanced so as to make body healthy.
  • Good for concentration of mind that helps for kundalini jagran.
Learn how to practice Bhastrika or Bellows breath here.
Note! Avoid Bhastrika if you have an ulcer, hiatal hernia, chronic constipation, heart disease, high blood pressure, or moderate to severe nasal congestion. Avoid this pranayama during menstruation and pregnancy. 

#4 This is referred to as Ocean`s breath or Ujjayi Pranayama:

This is a great calming practice that you can use if you feel angry, frustrated or irritated. It will calm the mind and settle the whole body.
  • Take an inhalation that is slightly deeper than normal. Keep your mouth closed, and exhale through your nose. We always use our nostrils in pranayama. Try to imagine that you are breathing out as if you were fogging a mirror. That is the type of air you want to come out. Like the sound of the ocean.
  • Try to constrict your throat on the inhale as well.
Practice the inflow breath first, and then slowly use the same technique on outflow. Gently constrict your throat on your outflow.

Benefits of Ocean`s breath:

  • Improves concentration.
  • Instills endurance that enhances a flowing practice by lending a meditative quality that maintains the rhythm of the class.
  • It diminishes distractions and allows the practitioner to remain self-aware and grounded in the practice.
  • Ujjayi breath regulates heating of the body. The friction of the air passing through the lungs and throat generates internal body heat. It is similar to a massage for the internal organs; as the core becomes warm from the inside, the body becomes prepared for the asana practice. This heat makes stretching safer while the inner organs can be cleansed of any toxins that have accumulated.
  • A focused Ujjayi breath can release tension and tight areas of the body.
  • Additional benefits of Ujjayi pranayama include diminished pain from headaches, relief of sinus pressure, decrease in phlegm, and strengthening of the nervous and digestive systems.
Learn how to practice Ocean`S breath or Ujjayi here.

#5 This is referred to as Bhramari Pranayama:

Bhramari pranayama is very effective in instantly calming your mind down. It is one of the best breathing exercises to release the mind of agitation, frustration or anxiety and get rid of anger. A simple-to-do technique, can be practiced anywhere at work or home, and an instant option available to de-stress yourself.
This breathing technique derives its name from the black Indian bee called Bhramari. (Bhramari = type of Indian bee; pranayama = breathing technique)
The exhalation in this pranayama resembles the typical humming sound of a bee, which explains why it is named so.
  • Sit up straight in a quiet, well ventilated corner with your eyes closed. Keep a gentle smile on your face.
  • Place your index fingers on your ears. There is a cartilage between your cheek and ear. Place your index fingers on the cartilage.
  • Take a deep breath in and as you breathe out, gently press the cartilage. You can keep the cartilage pressed or press it in and out with your fingers, while making a loud humming sound like a bee.
  • You can also make a low-pitched sound but it is a good idea to make a high-pitched one for better results.
Breathe in again and continue the same pattern for 6-7 times.
Keep your eyes closed for some time. Observe the sensations in the body and the quietness within. You can also practice Bhramari pranayama lying on your back or lying on your right. While practicing the pranayama while lying down, just make the humming sound and do not worry about keeping your index finger on the ear. You can practice the Bee pranayama 3-4 times every day.

Bhramari (as with most pranayamas) is best practiced on an empty stomach. While it can be practiced at any time of day, bhramari is particularly potent in the early morning and late at night- when there are fewer distracting noises and our inner perception is most acute.

#6 Breath of fire or Kapalabhati Pranayama:

Breath of Fire is without a doubt the most sophisticated Pranayama (breath control). It is an amazing tool that fights against anxiety, nerves, fears, pain, and depression.
Yogi Bhajan said that a person has been granted a predetermined number of breaths from birth till his death, and breath of fire is ONE (from the moment you start until you end). This means that you can prolong your life span by doing Breath of Fire!
The Pranayama practitioners say the way we feel is directly related to the way we breathe. When dealing with challenging or stressful life situations, our body has an unconscious tendency to pull the diaphragm in. This is the area of the Solar Plexus, where the body keeps all of its emotions.
Kapalabhati helps to make the motions of your diaphragm very easy and controlled. This helps it to discard the muscle cramps present in bronchial tubes. A lot of force is used to do this pranayama. While exhaling, the process is very strong and while inhaling, the process is very calming. It is a very energizing technique, and when done correctly it will reboot all your muscles. It is also a cleansing technique that places emphasis on cleaning the air passages and blockages in the chest.
“There are seventy-two thousand nerves in our body. Out of the entire seventy-two thousand , seventy-two are the most important. Out of these seventy-two, ten are vital. In India, they say that if the third Chakra (one of the focal points where all the seventy-two thousand nerves meet), is not in balance, a person cannot be healthy no matter how much medicine he is taking. A way to balance this out is by doing Breath of Fire in “stretch pose“. “
This is a wonderful breathing technique to help the mind and soul, as it helps to awaken the spiritual power which heals many problems facing many of us today.
  • Breathe in and out through the nose (or mouth).
  • Pull the abdomen in towards the diaphragm during the exhalation and out during inhalation.
  • This is very fast, as fast as 2 or 3 times per second, and also very loud.
  • The people next to you should be able to hear you.
  • When perfected, the rate should be 120 to 180 times per minute!!
“You can build up from there to forty-five second periods for two or three minutes. Soon you will be able to do this for long periods of time without stopping or feeling discomfort.”
Benefits of Breath of Fire:
  • Cleanse yourself of toxic air. Kapalabhati clears the body from the constant intake of toxins, thus detoxifying it. This technique helps to replace any toxic air with fresh air.
  • Breathing in this way lightens your skull by extracting problems like sinusitis. This is an invigorating and energizing practice as it fills your stuffy skull with fresh air.
  • The practice also improves bowel movements which rids the body of the many diseases.
  • Excellent for Respiratory Problems
  • It is also one of the best exercises for asthma patients and people suffering from respiratory problems.
  • This stimulating breath can do wonders for every single tissue in your body.
  • The breathing technique will invigorate your spine.
  • Increases Blood Circulation
  • It is also useful for maintaining blood pressure.
  • The abdominal organs also become strengthened from the pressure applied to these organs while breathing and exhaling.
  • It increases the blood circulation due to fresh supply of blood. It is also useful for removing impurities from the blood.
  • The abdominal area is toned with the help of this breathing technique. It helps clear the entire nervous system which proves to be very useful in making the body fit.
  • Helps with Decision Making
  • A sense of calmness is also achieved due to the lightness of the skull. Kapalabhati helps one to think better and make decisions quickly while also keeping the mind alert.
