Thoughts constantly influence our breathing making it deeper and heavier or gentler and lighter. Through breathing, thoughts make positive or negative contributions to our health. Love, Kindness, and Acceptance always make breathing gentler and more peaceful, increasing the level of carbon dioxide in the lungs and balancing all functions of the body. Did you know that ‘altruism’ is the core idea of the Buteyko Breathing Method, as K.P. Buteyko MD formulated it? Dr. Buteyko believed that an altruistic mindset is conducive to optimal health when greed, selfishness, and over-consumption are supportive of over-breathing and various diseases. So, after all, unconditional love is the answer to most of our trouble.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
