Fair-Apy Bahari’s Balancing Breath

Bahari is the Sea Nymph and our Fairy of Inspiration and Intuition. One of the most powerful ways of tapping into the creative well of the collective unconscious is through focused breathing. And as you breathe with intention and control you balance your mind, body and spirit. Dr. Andrew Weil, a noted pioneer in mind-body medicine emphasized that if you were to do one thing to improve your health, it should be to regulate your breathing!

BLISSFUL BREATHING!: Finding a quiet place and allowing yourself to be without interruptions for 5-7 minutes, close your eyes and imagine yourself near, immersed or floating upon your favorite body of water – a stream, lake, natural spring, ocean, river, etc. This technique is particularly effective in a bath or hot tub.

You will be taking 16 long, deep breaths – each time you will breathe in to a mental count of 8 and breathe out to the same count of 8. To easily keep track of the 16 breaths, you can mentally count “one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight” on the intake and repeat on the out breath. Then – and on the next breath, “two, two, three, etc.” and so on, through sixteen.

Let your mind do what it will, but the more you can return to focusing on the breath in spite of mental distractions, the greater the balancing effect. When you have finished, slowly open your eyes and return to conscious awareness. You can also spend a few moments “communing with the muse” and seek inspiration or guidance on issues that are occupying your life. NOTE: Once you get some practice with this breathing technique, try extending the in and out breaths to a count of 16 for even better oxygenation of mind and body.
