Long, Deep Breathing is an amazing method of moving energy! 
This is the basic breath of Kundalini Yoga and Meditation! 

I will often ask you to do this when we are having a session on the phone or when you are on my healing table.  The reason is that it moves stuck energy, allows you heal, and to move on.  Do this whenever you feel anxiety or fear to move the energy of the solar plexus and the rest of your energetic system, or just when you need an energy boost.  It works wonders!

And in the case of Heart Breath (

Please make your spine straight, whether you are sitting, standing, or lying down.  This whole breath is done very slowly and consciously, and the air moves in and out through your nose, not your mouth.

Then slowly move your belly outward.  As you do this, you are automatically drawing your diaphragm down.  Your diaphragm is that amazing horizontal sheet of a muscle that is attached all around the edges to the inside walls of your torso.  It is placed like a muscular round pizza just above your abdominal organs--stomach, liver, spleen, adrenals/kidneys and just under your lungs.

As your diaphragm moves down, it pulls the bottom of your lungs down, thereby pulling air into the bottom of your lungs as a bellows action.  Allow your bottom ribs to expand, and then expand the upper ribs to bring air into all of your lungs!

Now slowly move your belly in.  This pushes your diaphragm up, and pushes the air out of the bottom of your lungs.  Contract your bottom ribs, and then the upper ones for a full exhalation.

Do this as slowly and fully as you can comfortably do it.  And be sure that the length of your inhale equals the length of your exhale!  Once you get it, you can even change your breathing habit to be Long, Deep Breathing.  Your nerves will be quieter, you will be more open, relaxed and creative.  Guaranteed!
Once you catch on, it is quite easy!  And if you do this often, you will find out how powerful it is!

What Long Deep Breathing Will Do for You

From the yoga manual ""Survival Kit, Meditations and Exercises for Stress and Pressure of the Times," by Yogi Bhajan, published by Kundalini Research Institute (KRI), Copyright 1980 by Yogi Bhajan, page 47.  This manual is available from Ancient Healing Ways.
  • Relax and calm you
  • This relaxation is of an active rather than a passive kind.  It will re-tune and reset your brain so that correct decisions will flow automatically in a crisis situation.
  • Filling of the lungs to capacity will feed your electro-magnetic field.  Revitalizing and re-adjusting your magnetic field will make you less liable to fall victim to accidents, sickness and negativity.
  • Pump the spinal fluid to the brain, giving greater energy
  • Regulate the body's pH (acid/alkalinity), which affects your ability to handle a stressful situation
  • Reduce and prevent toxic buildup caused by not clearing the mucous linings of the small air sacs (alveoli) of the the lungs
  • Stimulate the production of chemicals (endorphins) in the brain, which eliminate the tendency to depression.
  • Cleanse the blood
  • Energize, give greater alertness and awareness due to the life force (prana) in oxygen.
  • Give clarity, cool-headedness, and positivity
  • Aid in releasing blockages in meridian energy flow
  • Activate and cleanse nerve channels
  • Aid in releasing blockages in meridian energy flow
  • Acitivate and cleanse nerve channels
  • Aid in speeding up healing, emotional and physical
  • Aid in breaking subconscious undesirable habit patterns and addictions
  • Reduce insecurity and fear
  • Rechannel previous mental conditioning on pain so as to reduce or eliminate pain (as, for example, in childbirth).
  • Restore the aura
  • Give capacity to control your negativity and emotions
  • As the lung capacity increases, the pitutitary gland will begin to secrete and the intuitional power of the mind will begin to develop.
