"This is the answer for people who say, "I have no time to meditate" because the good news is, that you"re always breathing we just need to tweak it a bit! Most people use the muscles of the neck and upper back/shoulders to breathe, which actually only activates the fight or flight nervous system. Instead, when we want to shift out of "fight or flight," we do that with deep breathing.
Think about how a baby breathes. Deep abdominal breaths. This type of breathing increases oxygenation, slows the heart rate and shifts us into the "rest and relax" para-sympathetic nervous system. This is where healing takes place. Deep breathing helps reduce stress, improve memory and make better, more correct decisions.
From an energetic perspective, Pranic Healing teaches us an advanced breathing pattern which generates a tremendous amount of energy (prana, or chi) in our system, while at the same time inducing a state of mental calmness. This key to this breathing practice is deep diaphragmatic breathing, with the addition of a pause between the inhale and the exhale, which significantly amplifies the power of the energy generated. Just doing 2 -3 minutes of Pranic Breathing can help re-energize an exhausted person, and improve mental clarity.
Pranic Breathing can be practiced any time of day. You can use it in the shower, in traffic, preparing for a meeting, getting ready for a surgery, dealing with an angry customer. If you have been juggling a million things all day and you need to "turn it off," you can do Pranic Breathing as you are falling asleep. A powerful relaxation tool that is ready to use no matter where you are, or what you are doing."
