The Life Force of Breathing
The secret to life is the oxygen we breathe. All living species, human, plants and animals all breathe in oxygen to live. We know this and comfortably accept that it is a vital part of existence.
But what is this breath that we cannot live without?
Every second of the day for millions of years, all living creation has been breathing in air through our nostrils. It is not only oxygen, but carbon dioxide and other gases in small proportions, which we are aware of.
However within these gases there is a life force which has been rarely written about which makes the connection complete with the universe and with the Creator. Without this there would be no life in any of the living species in any part of the world. It is easy to breathe, but without this, death would be immediate.
This life force contains the link, and constant flow of energies to maintain the body, from revitalising and DNA, to feeding and nourishing the body.
Since the beginning of time and Earth's existence, early man did not need to eat or drink anything as everything was provided through the air that they breathed.
During that era there was less pollution and the air was completely pure. Early men easily received all the nourishment to survive and as a result were a lot stronger.
Due to pollution and deforestation which acts as a natural purifier of air, the air we breathe is only a fraction of what it used to be. It is reason why so many people fall ill daily; because of pollution and the stresses in life that the material world has put itself in.
This life force and how we breathe governs our health and any spiritual development. It is ranked as important as our conduct and positivity. We cannot function to our best without this component.
A suggested way would be to breathe by pushing the air down to our abdomen and then breathing out through the mouth. In through the nostrils and out through the mouth, pausing and counting to five in each of its step.
When we breathe in, we breathe pure energy and breathe out the impurities. It is advisable to do this at least five times through a cycle to start with, then increase this daily throughout the week.
Poor breathing and even bad posture results in less air and life force coming into the body. It is vital as part of spiritual development.
When we work with the breath each day we work on our spiritual energy too. It is no wonder the yogi’s and all people who practice meditation have highlighted the importance of breathing.
Every time we breathe in and out we can contemplate the cleansing that is taking place with ourselves and feel revitalised. Such a positive thought is recommended to aid in your own cleansing of the mind, body and spirit.
The Creator truly provides us with all that we need through this life force that we breathe. We have to thank him daily that he has never discriminated amongst its creation, belief or race.
Your mother; through effort, dedication and knowledge you will all awaken.
