Use Yogic Breathing To Calm Down In 6 Seconds

Use Yogic Breathing To Calm Down In 6 Seconds | CALM | Scoop.it
To calm down when we're flustered or angry, most therapists teach us to use our breathing. Everyone thinks that the secret is in the inhalation. The more I can inhale and fill my lung, the more calm I am, right? 
Wrong.

The Breath Prayer | Contemplative Outreach Ltd. | CALM | Scoop.it

The breath prayer is simply taking a prayer/scripture phrase and praying it in rhythm with our breathing. I remember taking a phrase from the writing of St. Anthony the Desert Father: "I walk in the presence of the Lord in the land of the living" As I walk, I breathe in "I walk in the Presences of the Lord", and breathing out, "in the land of the living". This practice is based on the wisdom that as the phrase becomes more part of me, it is erasing or purifying some of the recurring thoughts that happen as I am going about the business of life. It really helps us put on the mind of Christ by eliminating some of the other chatter that goes on in us as a constant commentary.
