Extending our out breath is a proven way to resetting our nervous system. When we reset our our rest, digest and repair system, or rather our nervous system, we can experience lower blood pressure and increased feelings of calm and peace. When we add a vibrational sound to our extended out breath, such as OM, pronounced AUM, we find that we can reconnect with the energy inside ourselves as well as the Universe.
Sitting in an upright position, I began to focus on my breath. Beginning to extend my out breath and pushing all of the air out of my lungs by squeezing my abdominal muscles, my body began to relax. Beginning to chant OM on my extended out breath, I sensed that I had begun to tap into the energy within this body of mine. Continuing to do this practice, I sensed vibrations arising in my throat, chest and feet. By the end of this meditation, my mind was alert, my body was energized and I felt connected with the almighty energy of this body of mine and the Universe. I am buzzing with good vibrations!
Shaping our breath by extending our out breath has immediate calming effects on our nervous system. Chanting OM while extending our out breath gives us good vibrations. It’s a win-win if you ask me!
OM and Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
