1. With each breath in, begin imagining (even picturing and feeling, if possible) that your air is coming in through the bottoms of your feet, all
the way up from there. Breathe in as if you have to pull your air all the
way up through ankles, legs and body, up to where you can breathe out
through normal channels. (Perhaps picturing a nose in your feet might help,
a nostril in the bottom of each foot between mid-arch and toes.) With each
breath, breathe in against the pull of your air having to make its way up
through the tissues and cells of your feet, ankles, legs and lower body ....
Continue for several minutes, examining the effects you feel from this
2. Picture or imagine piles of dried leaves or other debris being swirled up with each breath, out of your tissues and cells. Experience this stuff
as being swirled up by each incoming breath, swirled up from the
breath-swept tissues of your feet, legs and body, and swept up out of you
on your deeply exhaled breath. Experience this as vividly as you can, with
every breath. Sweep all that stuff cleanly out of you with your breath.
(let all these leaves or debris represent all "noise" tensions, toxins,
tiredness, other pollutants which didn't belong there.}
3. As these clouds of "noise" sweep cleanly out of you on your slowly, deeply, calmly exhaled breath, as all this debris hits the open air, see it
flaming into showers of bright sparks!
(Even "noise" is energy: there is no such thing as "bad" energy, only
congested energy compared to free flowing, useful energy, so that when this
stuff is swept from "bad" configurations and hits the open air, it becomes
good clean usable life-enhancing energy again.)
Sweep up as much of that stuff as you can with each and every incoming
breath, blowtorch out that shower of bright sparks with your breath, deeply
and softly breathed out as the flame of a blowtorch, and see how much more,
with each breath out, you can fill the space around you with good released
Continue for some minutes, studying the effects you feel from doing this...
4. Breathe in not only through your feet but through whatever parts of your
body come to your attention in this context..... Breathe in against the
pull of the air having to come in through the tissues and cells of each
such part, swirl up as much "noise" as you can with each breath in;
blowtorch out as much released energy in bright hot spark-showers as you
can, with each breath ...
(You may find it interesting to make mental note of just which parts of
your body do come to your attention in this context, for you to breathe in
through and to thereby swirl up and remove even subliminal "noise" from....)
Continue for several minutes, studying the effects you feel from this
pattern of breathing and imaging.
5. In the same manner, use your breath to breathe up and away whatever
could have in the slightest stood belween you and even more profound levels
of relaxed awareness. Continue this breathing-goal for several minutes,
studying the effects you feel from it ...
(In the same manner, use your breath to sweep up and away any feeling of
discomfort, whenever experienced and not just during these exercises.
Throughout your life, make it a reflex to respond to any problem,
discomfort, difficulty or distress by this deep, slow, calm, releasing,
noise-removal breathing. Emphasize breathing slowly when dealing with any
distress ... But first, before using this breathing on specific "targets"
and problems, get in, over several sessions, a total of at least an hour's
worth of this type of breathing, emphasizing the clarity and pleasure
aspects especially, to build your general comfort levels.)
For future referenceIf and when you like: think back to some situation,
relating to problems or difficulties or hurts you have experienced, and
"breathe on it" in this manner, drawing up and away any static or negative
feelings out of that experience, until you feel perfectly, wholly,
comfortable while clearly recalling all aspects of that situation .... )
6. In the same manner, for several minutes before any task, creative work, schooling or performance of whatever nature, picture your goal for that
activity and breathe up and away whatever could in the slightest have
impeded full swift rich clean attainment of that goalthen go directly
into that work and let fly!
7. In the same manner, breathe up and away whatever could in the slightest
have impeded your clear, rich perception of beauty or of some insight ....
1. Continue to noise-removal breathe. but let yawns come up if they will.
2. Stretch deeply a time or so and continue noise breathing. This may well
either trigger or intensify the yawningdeep. intense, repeated yawns
which cleanse out anxiety, fear, all sorts of stuff. Every dozen or so
breaths, stretch deeply and luxuriously again, even if you have to force
the stretching, to encourage the yawns to come, and continue such
stretch-interspersed breathing for as long as the yawns are flowing....
3. Even reflect back on some situation about which you have felt anxious,
fearful or even angry, "breathe on that situation" as above until all yawns
are exhausted from it....Study the effects of all this yawning on the way
you feel about that situation. and on the way you feel generally....
